IOU Queen's Square, the abode of Mr.
Symes Protheroe, it was the event of
the season to one member of the
family. When a card arrived for
"Miss Protheroe und Mr. Robert
Protheroe" it had given one of the
prettiest ofjpretty girls a happy mo
ment. Mrs. Protheroe was* a lean,
pushing mother, with a Blackheath
accent, keen to many her daughters,
and indignant with them for not grati
fying her uiaternal ambition. A per
petual quest for son-in-law had given
her au eager, restless expression, and

Peroline Protheroe was a beauty of
the plump, fair-haired, apple-blossom
type. Sho had suon serene blue eyes
and such a bewitching smile that at
her very first party she had captivated
a wealthy bullion broker. Yet, for
reasons she dared not hint to Mrs.
Protheroe, she had gammoned up all
her courage and refused Mr. Onlder
sack. Au event had occurred which
made the gentle Peroline as obstinate
as her eldest sister, Susan. She had
secretly fallen in lev? while away on
a couatry visit. The three inter
mediate sisters were itway when Mrs.
Thesiger's invitation arrived, and to
Peroline's dismay and Susan's angry
indignation, Mrs. Protheroe an
nounced, with a decision there was no
gainsaying, that Susan was to accept
Susan had always detested balls.
She had always known she was ugly ;
now that she was thirty she felt the
fact much less. Sho probably stifled
a private pang or two in her first
youth && she sat a lonely wallflower,
and realized that no one was ever at
all likely to dance with her unless
compelled to do so. But no amount
bf neglect oould spoil her imperturba
ble good temper. She had hosts of
girl friends who knew the advantage
ot a comrade who o o aid not bear a
rival. Men were repelled by the
stumpy figure which seemed made
only to show the absurdly of each
succeeding fashion, by her freckles,
her scanty looks and her big mouth.
But Susan had a ver; pleasant smile
and beautiful, capab'a hander
She adored her youngest sister, and
she alone knew of th 2 little romance
of which Captain Anthony Bridge
north was the hero. Also that his
leave was nearly over, and that he
would be at Mrs. Hay-Thesiger's ball.
Susan exhausted every means in her
power to induce her mother to change
her mind. "Iou know, mamma, I do
the establishment no credit. No one
will take any notice of me, whereas
Peroline would meet heaps of men
richer even than Mr. Culdersack.
Then I have no gown, and she looks
so lovely in her white lace."
Mrs. Protheroe, however, was ob
durate, and though Susan racked her
ingenious brain for excuses she could
not find one that was likely to be ac
cepted. ''Understand plainly, Susan,
that you are to go. I will not have it
said that I never gave you a chance."
So it had to be, and pretty Peroline
sadly helped her sister to put on an
unbecoming and rather rumpled coral
pink garment which seemed to have
been planned to show how dowdy ac
cordion plaiting eau look. Peroline
was wearing one of last year's school
girl's white dresses, a.id looked young
er and sweeter than, ever. The big
blue eyes were bright with tears,
which rained down on a bouquet of
flowers she held. Alas! there was a
card with them. He had not forgot
ten ber, after all, They might have
been so happy.
"If even there was a chance of your
getting introduced to him I oould
bear it," she wailed ; "but I dare not
write, and I can't even thank him. I
shall never, never see him again ; they
go to In?ia to-morrow, and I shall be
perfectly miserable till I die. No,
"Susan, you are a dear, but you can't
know how 1 feel."
Susan was too sensible to lament,
but she felt dolefully that her chances
of introduction were a broken reed as
"Look here, Fairy," she said en
couraging, "I am taking that little
drawing-block. If I can get a quiet
corner I will saetch your Captain.
Oh, I'll find him out, never fear. I
should go to sleep if I hadn't my lit
tle block, and I often find places
where I can sketoh ; then I oan werk
it up into a regular portrait for you
to keep as a remembrance."
"You aro a dear, but I have an
other idea. You t&k<* the bouquet,
and perhaps he will recognize it."
Susan laughed, and her laugh was
BO merry it was infectious. "No, no,
Fairy, that would never do. Why, I
should feel and look like a goose, I
never had a bouquet in my life ; you
keep it to comfort you, all but this
queer yellow orchid. I never saw one
like it, and perhaps if I stuck it some
where very conspicuously it might
catch Captain Anthony's eye."
"But, Sukey, dear, it is quite too
aw'ully ugly with that gown."
"And ray hair," finished Susan,
without a touch of bitterness in %er
smile. "The uglier the better ; per
haps he will notice this skirt. I think
nothing could bf more effectually 1

"Well, I call you downright woi
derful, and if there were more gir
like you I shouldn't mind things ha
as much." She did not specialize th
things she meant. But Susan was ni
attending; she was staring with a
her might at a short man with a fa:
mustache and an eyeglass. In his bu
tonholo there was an orohid, whic
might have been a blossom plncke
from the spray she wore upon he
badly hanging lace berthe. SL
rushed to a prompt, and, ns it ha]
pened, a correct conclusion. Tb
orchid was so peculiar. No one eh
had anything like it. Stiil, the cor
elusion was something of a blow t
her. He was looking about and ii
specting the various couples curiously
but evidently failed to find the objec
of his search. Susan and her frien
were partly hidden by a screen, an
with a few rapid touches she sketche
him as he stood. A healthy, ordin?r
young Englishman, quite common
place, and with no especial character
istic beyond an attractive soldierl;
alertness. It was a very good like
ness, for he kindly gave her ten min
utes in which to do it.
Her companion watched h sr penoi
admiringly." You have made hin
rather better looking than Le is," shi
Susan laughed softly. "That is be
cause this portrait is to be a presenl
to somebody who thinks Captain An
thony Bridgenorth is different fron
every one else in the world, but I can'i
see it myself, so I have had to i m ag in;
a little. But how white you look. De
you feel faint or ill?"
"I hardly know. I am a little giddy ;
I suppose it is the heat, or the flow
ers, or something."
Susan looked positively pleased.
She had formed a bold scheme, ami
found an uuconscious coadjutor ready
to hand. "I will go and get some
water for you. Just lie back on thc
cushions-nobody can see you behind
The fact was, Susan had decided on
a little experiment. For two months
she had heard of Anthony Bridgenorth
as a quite peerless person. At List,
she, too, had made a hero of him, so
that this ordinary young man came as
a revelation. Yet she was certaiu it
was he. The question to be decided
was whether he was worthy of Pero
line's tears. Straws show the drift of
the wind. The fashion in which ho
treated this little emergency would bo
a good gauge of deeper matters. To
play preux chevalier to Peroline in
the graceful languor of au indisposi
tion that would be certaiu to become
her as everything else did, was quite
another matter to squiring two such
damsels as herself and her protegee.
She walked up to him qnite simply
and said, without preauiblp, in the
quiet tone of an old acquaintance :
"Oh, Captain Bridgenorth, my
friend is unwell. I wonder if you
would mind fetching her a glass of
It was a bold stroke, but it suc
ceeded. Had she hit on the wrong
man, she was prepared with au excuse.
It was not needed, however.
"Of course, I shall be only too glad
to be of any service ; only ? am not
sure where the refreshment room is.
Perhaps, if you would comei. too-He
paused, for he oould not supply a
name, and yet she was evidently per
fectly familiar with his. Susan ao
ceded, with a sense of growing satis
faction. She liked his voice; she
liked his utter indifference to being
seen with such a dress as hers.
"No bounoe," she decided, and
bounoe was a quality Susan loathed.
What was odder still, he seemed
really interested in her conversation
and indifferent to stray glances from
carefully made-up eyes. He was shy,
and dared not ask the name of this
ohatty little woman, who ueemed to
know him so well. He was always for
getting faces since he had taken to
that beastly glass. He gave up wrest
ling with it, and then, with a start of
surprise, he saw a long spray of a
quaint orchid-a spray like one he
had been assured by a leading florist
was unique, and for which he had paid
"How curious we should be wearing
the same very uncommon flower?" re
marked the diplomatist in a tone of
easy comment, as she noticed his start
of surprise. They had reached the
oyster bar. It was thronged, and
glasses of water take an immense time
to procure. There is ;no other order
against which a waiter openly rebels ;
it is so alien to his own tastes.
"Very odd, indeed. What I time
that man is ; your poor friend will
think we are lost altogether. "
"Yes, mine was a present from
somebody who was % prevented from
coming here ; she took it out of a
He turned the dull red that is tho
masculine equivalent for a blush.
"Then you know Miss Proetheroe?"
"Very well; in fact, I am she.
I Didn't you know me?"
Susan's little eyes twinkled, for she I
saw that tbi ; poor young man thought
the florist had made some terrible
: mistake. To fetoh glasses of water

dear flowers to bo worn by a girl who
was downright ngly, not evon plain,
was quite another. He was not quick
enough to grasp the trna aspect of
affairs. The glass of water came at
this juncture. Captain Bridgenorth
looked so very crestfallen as he took
it that Susan relented. A rather se
rious expression oame across her face
as they went down the passage.
"Yes, I aux Miss Protheroe, but I
think you stay id at Cherrington with
my little sister."
"Oh, is she here to-night? I thought
she might be."
"No, she is not here ; she is in dis
"In disgrace !" The he lowered his
voice, and said, as if to hinself, with a
pretty touch of tenderness: "The
Qneeu can do no wrong."
Evidently ho was very far gone, in
deed. They were back again by this
time, and he administered the glass of
water, very kindly making eager prof
fer of any further help.
"You must rest," he said, in quite a
brotherly way, "and then presently
yon must let me take you in for a lit
tle supper." He forgot that they had
not been introduced. Then he turned
anxiously to Susan : "Have you any
dances left, and if BO, will you gi va
me all you oan?"
"Wiil you sit out the rest of this?"
They sat down, and .nady Susan was
the happiest girl in that ballroom.
"I go to India to-morrow," said
Anthony Bridgenorth, becoming very
seriouE, "hut our time is nearly up,
and I shall be home in a year. It is
very hard to me to go without saying
good-by to your sister."
"Peroline is very young yet," Su
san interpolated, with an indefinite
senne of being consolatory.
1 'But she is so lovely, there is no
one like her," said the lover, with a
conviction that thrilled Susin. A
little picture of Peroline, with tear?
falling on the white rose?, suggested
itself. "Thai is quite .true. "
"3ome other fellow will get ber
while I am gone. I am certain of it.
I meant to have spoken to her to-night
and told her that she is all the world
"You have my very best wishes, and
they are hopeful ones." Susan could
not gay more. Peroline's dainty se
cret must only be revealed by her own
lips. Her voice was more expressive
than she guessed."
"Then you think I may hope?"
If it bad been her own "Yes," Su
san could not have said it more softly
or more sweetly.
Her listener was evidently very
rleeply touohed, but he was silent.
Then she showed him the little por
trait of him she had sketched, and he
found ready word?. They were not
so fluent, when, with ? few rapid
touches from the apt pencil, Peroline's
own face was before him. Meanwhile
plenty of inquiring glances had been
directed towards this couple, who had
occupied that secluded seat- so long.
Prosently, to Susan's great pleasure,
he remembered her forlorn protege.
"Now let me take you two ladies com
fortably in to supper." He was as
good as his word, an! they had a
jheery repast at a vacant table. Tho
forlorn one was more'amazed at Susan
than ever, when that plainest of maid
ens touched C?ptain Bridgenorth's
glass with her own and drauk "to our
next meeting," he responded with un
. As they came away the lanciers were
beginning, and Susan went off to dance
ivith her Captain. It was actually No.
18, but she had forgotten all about
her prior engageaient. Bob was in
the same set with Miss Denderleigh,
more kittenish than ever, and they
were all very merry. -Captain Bridge
north put Susau into the cab with an
attention that amazed her brother.
"Bravo, Sukey, you've got an ad
mirer at last; better late than never,"
was his amazed comment, but she
made no rejoiner.
When she got home Peroline was
lying asleep, looking prettier than
ever, with flushed cheeks and curls in
jonfusion. Susan woke her gently.
"Open your eyes, Fairy. He has sent
rou a message." And Peroline awoke
to a happiness that was permanent.

Wait, don't scold, don't tantalize,

stings of the tantalizing reproaches of
Double Locomotivo Head Lights.
The New York, New Haven and
Hartford Railroad is experimenting
with a double head light on one of
their locomotives. The plan has long
been used on some of the railways in
Great Britain, and has proved advan
tageous in increasing the safety of
trains and passengers. The points of
advantage claimed are that should ono
light become extinguished (which not
infrequently occurs) there is still an
other to fall back upon, also that tho
double light enables the engineer to
obtain a better illumination on curves,
and when making switches.
Engine No. 218 is thus equipped.
This locomotive was badly smashed
up in the accident whioh recently oc
curred near New Haven to the early
Sunday morning paper train. When
the eugine was repaired a long plat
form was erected in front of the smoke
stack, and two full sized head lights
were placed side by side, one each
side of the staok directly over eaoh
rail.-New York Herald.

These were the words utterer'
to a reporter for the New York Times,
who had climbed a narrow staircase
loading from an equally narrow en
trance* on Grand street, to a pennine
plaster paradise. Here, in all tht
purity of snowy piaster, are gods and
goddesses, patriarchs and prophets,
and heroes and cherubs. Head3 and
hands and legs are here in profusion
on all sides. The room is part of thc
largest plaster cast .establishment ic

The business in plaster casts is an
extensive one, and is constantly in
creasing. The casts go largely into
educational institutions for purposes
of adornment, and into art schools as
"It is only within the last seven 01
eight years," tho pretty young girl in
charge of all the plaster goddesses
said, "that there has been much ap
preciation for artistic casts among
private individuals in this oountry,
but now there is a largo demand foi
them, as well ss for varions decorative
pieces in bas-relief."
The Venus of Milo always comes
first in the scale of popularity. Mer
cury and Narcissus aro also great
favorites. The gladiators are popular
also, and Mender's "David," which
made its first appearance at Paris c
few years ago, is a popular modern
There is a horse's head in the collec
tion, made from a death mask taken in
this oity about fifteen years ago, and
horses' legs in various positions.
Theso all go to the art schools. So do
the hands and arms ; that is, those
which are not private property.
"The people who come to have theil
hands molded are not the people yon
would expect to see interested in sucb
things," said the young custodian.
"Women come here who would not be
expected to be interested in a fad

ways have pretty hand.', either. But
really the hand does not make so muet
difference as it does about the po=e.
It seems to be difficult for people tc
place their hands in a graceful posi
tion. They spread them out in an
ugly, flat way. Most of the models we
keep in stock come from abroad.
"These are the hands of a man whe
is very well known here. He is a mu
sician, and the hands aro held as thej
would be at the piano. ' There is the
hand of another friend. It seems tc

The hand, particularly that of a wo
man, is usually modeled with a part ol
the arm from below the elbow.
There is not so much interest taked
in modeling tho foot. The fool
models, as well as those for the hand,
come chiefly from abroad. Properly
shaped feet are not common in this
country. There has been quite a call
for ready-made casts of a foot this
year, and few of the applicants were
satisfied with the models presented foi
It is not an expensive luxury to in
dulge in a cast of one's hand or foot,
for they only cost $3 each. When one
wants a cast of a hand or foot made,
he or she goes down to the basement
of tho establishment, where there aro
barrels of plaster, u convenient stream
of running water, and around the
room what appears to be rough-look
ing lumps of plaster marked "Brntus,"
"Venus" or "Juno" molds for larg?
Casting is not very much unlike
cake making. A regular recipe form
might be given. "Take the proper
amount of plaster and stir smooth
with water, to the consistency ot a
When the plaster batter is of the
proper consistency it is poured cars
fully around the hand-if that is th?
model to be taken-from a 6niall
white, earthenware bowl. The ham
rests gently upon a table, and before
the plaster is dry a string is drawn
around tho hand and well into the
plaster, so as to break it away whee
the impression is made.
People ask frequently to have cast
of their faces, but that is one thin?
that cannot be obtained at this par
ticular establishment. There is som!
danger in burying the face two o:
three inches deep with plaster, ttl
though, when it is done, special ar
rangements are made to permit o
breathing. Some sculptors take mask
in this way, but it is an unpleasan
practice at the least.
A Clocklcss Village.
A recent traveler in Alsaoe writes
"On my return from Bolchen I lookei
upon the beautiful villages of thi
Lewen valley, and, being a touris
who likes to poke his nose into every
thing, I turned by chance into th?
ohuroh at Kirchberg. On coming out
I took out my watch to regulate it by
the clock in the church tower. Bu
there was no clock to be seen. Hence
I went into the village inn, and then
asked the time. But my host coule
not oblige me. 'You see,' he said,
'we have no use for clocks. In tht
morning we go by the smoke rising
from the chimney at the parsonage ur
on the hill. The parsonage peoph
are very regular. We dine when din
nor is ready. At ? p. m. the whist 1.
of the train coming from Massmunstei
tells us that the time has come fo:
another meal, and nt night we kno?
that it is time to go to bed when it if
dark. On Sunday we go to ohurcl
when the bell rings. Our parson is i

A Remarkable Distinction.
Moses Chamberlain, now living a
Milton, Penn., enjoys the distinctioi
of being a brother of a man who wai
killed in battle 118 years ago. Sucl
a thing would seem impossible at first
thought, but it is a fact. Mr. Cham
berlain is eighty-three years old, ant
was born thirty-five years after th<
battle of Germantown (1777), in whiol
his brother, aged eighteen, lost hi
life. The latter was the oldest o
twenty-four children, and Mr. Cham
berlain is the youngest.-New Orlean

Speaking of fires and of newspaper

. laughable, bull made by a Gotham
For many years there had been em
i ployed upon the New York Staats-Zei
tung as night police reporter a faith
ful German, who was a favorite witk
every one and who was known only aa
"Bismarck." He probably had an
other name ; indeed, I believe that it
j finally developed that there was a
1 family Bible with his Christian name
and s?mame written therein, but he
' was "Bismarck" to all the boy?.
One bitterly cold winter night "Bis
1 marok" did a fire in Mulberry Bend,
and while prowliog around after in
! formation walked in front oi A nozzlze,
! and was given a thorough wetting.
. The next day he was sick with pneu
1 monia, and the next day he died.
' There was grief at police head
1 quarters that day. The "Anonymous

1 workers), was in mourning, and from

The boys decided to order an im
1 meuse floral piece, but none of them
1 could suggest an acceptable design.
1 Finally it was. determined that it
should be left to the florist, who had
certainly had much experience, and
. should bo able to furnish something
' appropriate. Merely a3 a suggestion
' a tire badge was given tho florist that
' ho might copy the shape of it. Tho
floristsimply copied the design liter
ally, and at the funeral upon "Bis
1 marck's" coffin rested an immou3e
shield of white flowers, with this
1 legend built iu with red roses :
"Admit Within the Fire Lines."
Tho boys could only console them
selves with the knowledge that had
1 "Bismarck" not been incapacitated he

: force Expended iu flaying tile Pian?.
It is said that it requires more force
to sound a note gently on the piano
; than to lift "the lid of a kettle." We
1 do not know, says the Literary Digest,
just what kind of a kettle the German
composer who makes this statement
. meaus, but he has figured that the
minimum pressure of the finger play
ing pianissimo is equal to a quarter of
1 a pound ; and few kettle lids, he says,
weigh moro thau two ounces. The
" American Art Journal says :
"The German's calculations are
1 easy to verify if ono takes a smidl
handful of coins and piles them on n
' key or the piano. When a sufficient
quantity is piled on to make a note
1 sound they may then be weighed, and
' these figures will be found to be
1 "If the pianist is playing fortissimo,
' a much greater force is needed. At
times a force of six pounds is thrown
! upon a single key to produce a solitary
1 effect. With chords the force is gen
' orally spread over the various notes
' sounded simultaneously, though a
greater output of force is undoubtedly
expended. This is what gives pianists
? the wonder*nl strength in their fingers
that is o ."c.-J i:;.nmented on. A story
, used to bc told of Paderswski that he
; could crack a pane of French plate
' glass half an inch thick merely by
placing one hand upon it, as if upon
a piano keyboard, and striking it
sharply with his middle finger./
"Chopin'd lost study in C minor has
a passage which takes two minutes
and five seconds to play. The total
pressure brought to bear on this,-it is
estimated, is equal to three full tons.
The average 'tonnage' of an hour's
piano playing of Chopin's music varies
from twelve to eighty-four tons.
Wagner han not yet been calculated
along these lines."
A Curious Pistol.
J. G. Schmidt has just secured a
great curiosity in tho way of a pistol,
from a sailor, fie says he has been
in tho gnnsmith business for over
forty year?, and never encountered a
more curiously constructed pistol
than this one. Thc pistol has no bar
rel, and yet will shoot eight times.
It consists of a brass wheel or disk,
turee inches in diameter and half au
inch thick, with holc3 drilled from
the outer edge3 toward the centre, in
which the loads are inserted. Th9
trigger is on the top ot the brass disk,
and drop3 dowu ou tin tuba, which
connects with tho holes in the disk.
When one barrel is discharged the
disk is turned to bring the next load
under the hammer, and so on until all
the loads aro discharged. Under the
disk and projecting from it is inserted
a dagger, so that when all tho loads
are discharged the dagger may be
A collector of curios saw the pistol
Saturday and tried to purchase it, but
Mr. Schmidt would not part with it.
Quite a number have examined it, but
none ever saw such a weapon before.
The sailor who had it in his posses

knew nothing about its history, but
Mr. Schmidt intends to find ont some
thing about it.-Morning Arizonian.
Washington as a Stock-Breeder.
Captain D. G. Purse, who is run
ning the Savannah end of the great
exposition, has secured a relic which
seems to be proof that General George
Washington was somewhat of a stock
grower, and took a hand in making
exhibits at fairs himself. The relic is
a large solid silver cup with the date
of 1780 upon it, and by its appearance
it was without doubt made about that
time. It bears the following inscrip
tion in fine lettering just under the
rim: "A premium from ^he Agricul
tural Society of South Carolina to
General Washington for raising the
largest jaokass." Just under the word
"jackass" is a picture of the animal
himself, engraved on the silver. Cap
tain Parse is now in temporary pos
session of this relic, and proposes to
secure it for the collection of colonial
relics to be exhibited by the Colonial
Dames of America.-Charleston (S.

The Fish is a Cannibal.
Fishes absorb nourishment as well
as plants, but in a different way. The
plant drinks iu its food through its
roots from the soil and through its
leaves from the air. Tue fish takes
its food into the stomach, where it is
digested and then distributed by a
wonderful circulatory process to every
part of the body. The plant lives on
grass and moisture, the fish on solid
food. The fish is a cannibal and
swallows his viotims alive. -Boston
