A father talking to his careless
daughter said: "I want to speak to
you of your mother. It may be that
you noticed a care-worn look upon
her face. Of course it has not been
brought there by any aot of yours,
still it is your duty to chase it away.
I want you to get up tomorrow morn
ing and get breakfast. When your
mother comes and begins to express
her surprise, go right up to hex and
kiss her on tho mouth. You can't im
agine how it will brighten her dear
"Besides, you owe her a kiss or two.
Away back, when you were a little girl,
she kissod you when no ono else was
tempted by your fever tainted breath
and swollen face. You were not as at
tractive then ns you are now. Through
years of childish sunshine and shadows
sho was always ready to onre, by the
magio of a mother's kiss, the little,
dirty, chubby hadds whenovor they
were injured in those first skirmishes
with the rough old world."

HERE are high
hills on every side
save one - the
leads up from a
valley a mile
away. The house
faces tho iucline,
and back of it, !ap
and up, the grade
rises until less
than a mile away the tops of the green
pines toss their brushes against the
sky. Right and left close hills hedge
in the house, and on oach side is a
touch of the primeval forest. Back
of the house on the inclino is a flower
garden, a kitchen garden, a straw
berry bed, a ?trip of green corn and a
field of yellow grain.
In a corner of the gardcD, beyond
the beds of vegetables and rows of
thyme, rosemary and sweet marjoram,
grape trellis and clump of currant
bnshes, where ripo fruit hangs like
bunches of coral, there is a chestnut
tree, and under its shade is Janet Town
send's favorito retreat.
Janet is seventeen. Her black hair
is braided to her waist, and beyond
that falls ia a silken bush that touches
the grass as she sits with her hands
clasped around her knees, her body
leaning forward. Her eyes aro dark,
and have in them that wistful, inquir
ing look you sometimes see' in the
eyes of the young.
Janet is dreaming of the future,
waiting for the kingdom to come to
her, and it is so much nearer than she
Overhead a songbird rustles among
the leaves and flits upward from limb
to limb until the topmost bough is
reached. He pipes two or three short,
inquiring notes, turns his head this
way and that to see if ho is to bo undis

while tho rich round notes of his wild
song seem to fairly tumble from his
"Janet! Janet!" a voice is calling,
"Janet, your father wants yon." The
girl's hands unclasp ; she throws out
her arms, numbed by the tension of
the olasp about her knees, and then
she lightly runs down the path to tho
"Eather wants you, Janet," one of
the children repeats, as she bounds
up the steps of the back porch ; "he is
out on the front stoop."
"What is it, daddy?"
"Were you busy, Janet?"
"I'm never busy, dad."
The man looks at the girl half re
gretfully. "I am afraid you don't
like work, Janet. Work is a good
"Yes, I know work is a good thing
-tho right kind of work."
There was silence for a few miuutes
and then ahe said, reaching out for the
paper he held in his hand : "Do you
want me to read the rest of that con
tinued story?" They had just reached
the trial in the last chapter.
"Nb, not just now. Mother and I
have been sort of talking things over
and we have decided that wo will use
thc honey money each yeur for the
children's education. Now, you are
the oldest, Janet, and mother thinks
you ought to have a chane? because
you havo alwayB had to take care of
the younger ones. I saw Zekial Hale
in town to-day, and he tells me Eliza

the city. Mother and I concluded
we'd have you go with her. Elizabeth's

"What would I do with a business

"Not to be a bookkeeper, dad."

-the girl goes behind her father and
puts her arras dose around his neck.
"I can draw well now; Mr. Muncie

want to be an artist."
The man's face is thoughtful. "I
don't know about that, Janet. I'm
afraid mother won't agree, but Til ask
her. Children npwadays do learn dif
ferent things from what they used to."
"Dear old dad!"-and the arms
hug closer. "And I will live in Bo
He didn't say anything more. He
is very proud of this bright, dark
girl ; he has an innate feeling that she
really would not make a bookkeeper
or an office girl ; she is so different
from the other children.
The matter is finally settled, and
she is going away. Away from the
cottage, all woodbiuo covered ; the
sweet, damp wood6, the birds that Bing
in the treetops. Away from the deep,
clear watered creek aud tho favorite
spot where the eddy is formed by a
jutting bank and tho speckled trout
skims tho water and leaps at tho wide
winged fly that hovers over. No
feather fly and spoon hook have ever
swept that water.
It was all about her, but the girl
did not know it-Bohemia, land of
childhood and innocence, of all good
things in life.
The curtain has gone down on the
last stage picture, the immense
audience has turned its back upon the

stentorian tones the stirring strains of
"The Star Spangled Banner." Fashion

1 Burglar's Dual Lile.
The arrest of "Joe" Killoran, alias
Howard, in New York, together with
several notorious characters, on the
oharge of being a postofnce robber,
has revealed to many New Haven resi
dents one of the most interesting
characters that ever entered the City
of Elms. Killoran lived in New Ha
ven several years ago in one of the
most respectable portions of the town
and became acquainted with many so
ciety leaders, who would hardly care
to claim his acquaintance to-day. He
came as mysterously as he left. He
brought with him an attractive woman,
whom he claimed was his wife, but
who was in reality Fanny Wright.
The pair wero charming and interest
ing to meet, and soon made the ac
quaintance of a number of members
of the best families.
The Killorans took a house at 86
Wall street, and it was there that
many well known persons came to
know them and frequently dined with
them. About ten years ago Killoran
was first arrested, and lt was then that
his acquaintance with prominent per
sons stood him in good stead. A gen
tleman who knew Killoran told the
following story about him :
"Killoran," this gentleman Baid,
"was a charmer among men and
women. He hud a wonderful person
ality tbat attracted almost every one
that ever knew him, and he knew many
of the most prominent and influential
persons in New York. His friendship
with these persons undoubtedly kept
him out of prison a good mar y years.
When he was arrested ten years ago
there were eight penitentiaries wait
ing to receive him. When Killoran
lived in New Haven he knew many of
the best citizens, and yet his house
was visited again and again by the
most notorious bank burglars this
country has ever produced. They
came to consult with him whenever
they had a big job on. He was what
is called a 'spider' in that business,
and if ho told all he could make a book
of the most startling order, 'Joe How
ard' and 'Joe Lawler' are two of Kill
orari's aliases. '
In a Desert Sand Storm.
Mr. and Mrs. Whitelaw Reid, who
have been visiting Egypt and the Ho.'y
Land for the last seven months have
return ad to New York City. While
iii tho Egyptian desert they were
obliged to lie flat on the ground with
their heads covered for several hours
in order to avoid being suffocated.
Tho storm began first in the middle
of the night. The first gusts swept
the tent from its fastcuiugs and spread
the suffocating canvas over the sleep
ers. Then it was swept away into the
night, leaving them all at the mercy
of the blinding, choking clouds of
sand. Tho minute particles cut into
their flesh, got into t'aeir eyes and
mouths and buried them in its drifts.
It flowed down their backs, filled their
shoes and every fold in their clothes.
The force of tho blasts blew particles
even through the chinks in their
trunks, and when the bags and boxes
were opened afterward they were found
to be full of sand. Almost impercep
tible particles were driven between
the leaves of booka in these bags end
The storm lasted Bevon hours. At
its outbreak the oamel drivers, who
had seen such things before, piled the
camels' saddles about Mr. and Mrs.
Reid and covered their heads with
blankets. Then they built up a bul
wark of trunks and lay prostrate wh le
the suffocating blasts continued. The
seven hours of the storm were hours
of agony. Every ono in the party was
almost suffocated by the sand, a^d
when it was over they arose as if from
the dead. The faces of all were cut
and sore from the flying sand and
their eyes were red and aching. The
traces of this experience remained
with them for many days. -San Fran

German Army Marriage.
No German officer can marry with
out the consent of his Colonel (accord
ing to Poultney Bigelow in tho Bor
derland of Czar and Kaiser), and this
consent can bo obtained only after
careful inquiry into all the circum
stances surrounding the proposed al
liance. First, is the young lady suit
able for association with the wives of
the other officers? Second, will the
bridegroom be able to live respecta
bly and bring up his family? Third,
are his means, or those of his wife,
invested in proper securities, so that
he ?8not likely to be expelled by rea
son of bankruptcy? Tho extraordi
nary social advantages enjoyed by the
German officer, and the pecuniary re
sponsibilities growing naturally from
such advantage, make his small pay,
which amounts only to about a dollar
a day in case of a First Lieutenant,
appear even smaller than it is.
An American lady, who has beea
spending a winter in Dresden, told
Mr. Bigelow that all tho bachelors of
the garrison were furnished with a
list of marriageable women,each name
ornamented with the property she
might be expected to inherit. This,
no doubt, was a mistake on her part,
but it is a very common one. German
officers stationed in desirable towns
are very apt to to get into debt, and
have to choose between leaving tho
army in disgrace or marrying a rich
Mr. Bigelow adds : "From my own
experience in Germany the officers
would appear to have married for love
and tobo happy in consequence," and
yet, "the number of those who get into
debt and fail to secure a rich wife is
considerable, although it makes no
particular ripple on the surface ; such
men simply disappear and turn up
sooner or later in America, where
they take employment as coachmen,
waiters, teachers or instructors in
riding schools. The change of life is
very violent, and is adopted only as
preferable to suicide."-Philadalphia

Scaring Unwelcome Visitors.
During the Franco-German War a
couple of hundred Uhlans arrived in a
Norman village. One of the peasants
hurried to a neighboring hamlet to
warn a well-to-do farmer that ho might
expect a visit from unwelcome raiders.
The farmer was equal to the emerg
ency. Calling his wife and daughters,
all went to work with a will. Torn
quilts, tattered petticoats, dilapidated
gowns, were thrown over the backs of
the cattle, enveloping them up to their
horns, while their feet and their heads
wero bound with straw.
Then the sheep and goats wore
treated in the same fashion ; bottlos
of medicine were scattered about ; a
large trough was filled with water,
and in its midst was placed a great
syringe. Up carno the Uhlans, but at
sight of the strangely attired animals
and the squirt they hesitated.
At la?t ono of the troopers inquired
what was tho matter. "The rinder
pest," said the farmer. He had to
answer no more questions. His visi
tors turned their horses' heads and
galloped off at thoir best speed to
mako requisition elsewhere. - -Pearson's
How a Rat Emptied a Restaurant.
A Larkiu street restaurant was
nearly wrecked yesterday by a most
peculiar incident. As it was the noon
time, the business was lost for at least
The proprietor, who had been out
on the street somewhere, went to a
closet, douned his black alpaca coat
and started to wait on a couple of la
dies. He drew a napkin from the coat
pocket to brush a crumb from the
table cloth, when out jumped a rat
nearly as big as a groundhog. The
women were on the table in a second.
Men upset chairs and tables trying to
stamp on the animal, but it escaped
all the blows aimed at it and chased
around and arouud the place looking
for some avenue of escape for fully
five minutes. By the time tho restau
rant cat woke up and caught the rat
tho place waa a sorry wreck and half
the patrons had disappeared.-San
Intoxication From Tea.
Although Cowper spoaka of "tho
cups that cheer, but not inebriate,"
there is evidence of the intoxicating
power of tea. In China tea is rarely
used till it is a year old because of tho
peculiar intoxicating property which
new tea posses. Three or four grains
of theine aro contained in loss than
half an ounce of good tea and may be
taken in a day by most full grown
persons without unpleasant effects,
but if twice this quantity, or eight
grains, a day bo taken the pulse be
comes more frequent, the heart beats
moro strongly and trembling comes
on. At thc same time tho agitation is
excited, and aftcr awhilo the thoughts
wander, visions begin to be seen, and
a peculiar state of intoxication comes
on. All these symptoms are followed
by and pass off in a deep sleep.
Whether the tannin in tea contrib

or narcotic action is not known. That

which tea produces is rendered very
