MISS EXTER'S PUPIL
'Teaching is a thankless calling,'
said a gentleman standing near
me on the piazza of a popular sea
side hotel, last summer.
'That is true,' replied his com

superintending school committee.

conceited parents who want to

id the best room in the hotel,
as waited upon with extra at
ention, had the most stylish

assed her without raising his hat

The gentle little woman by my

nd then turning to me again,
aid: 'You are gathering facts

tory for your note-book, to be

nd she went on:
'I began to teach when I was

~ven they came to see me face to

amnivns a to my ability to
'manage' the larger pupils of the
school, whom they designated 'a
hard sot.' 'Now there is Tom
Strong,' said they, 'we may as m ell
tell you at the start that you had

with him the best way you can.
When you cannot stand it with
him any longer, let us know and
we will send him home. The boy

have had conscientious, painstak

it was impossible to teach him
to count, spell, or write his own
'I found this lad to be tall and
thin, blue and pinched, with hard
ly life enough to do anything in
school but make grotesque faces
for the amusement of the children.
I put an end to that at once by
making a rule that any scholar
who laughed at Tom Strong's
'faces' should sit with the dirty,
ragged unkempt boy, and take les
sons from him as a facial contor
tionist, while the rest of the school
'It did seem as if the poor fellow
could not be made to remember
anything ; but I said to myself,
'Hic is not an idiot, and he shall be
taught to read and spell easy
words at first, and to write his
name.' He had been blund.ering
along in an advanced reader, with
a class of live bright boys of his
own age and size. Not wishing to
humiliate the lad by putting him
into the 'infant class' where be
really belonged, I bad him read
by himself from my pretty, red
morocco-bound Bible, beginning
with the Sermon on the Mount,
and taking up the parables in good

Costumes-Belts and Parasols-ew Fall
Genteel poverty finds nothing so
convenient just now as bunting. Rich
people wear it freely, and just for that
reason the tired school mistress, or
the clergyman's wife may freshen up
in a bunting costume without the
feeling that they are assuming a badge
of any kind. The pastor's young
daughter too in her toilette of bunting
may try her small coquettish airs
unfettered by the thought that Mrs.
Grump over the way is calling her ex
travagant, or that Miss Muggins is
whispering awful things to Deacon
Sparse. Then too, bunting unites so
well with the varied silks and ribbons
of the day; can be made grave or gay
just as one wishes, and is suited to
morning or evening ; rainy weather or
sun shine. And, as has been said, it is
worn by rich as well as poor. Mrs.
Marshall 0. Roberts appeared the
other morning at Saratoga in a cos
tume of white bunting combined with
yellow and black striped satin. The
same evening Mrs. Edwin Booth wore
a pale ecru bunting adorned with black
velvet bows, and Marie Litta as in the
recesses of her rooms at Congress Hall
she ran scales to her Weber piano
preparatory to her evening concert,
wore a charming morning toilette of
white bunting trimmed with blue
satin bows. The Weber indeed seems
a favorite instument at Saratoga, for I
have observed it in leading hotel par
lors, and is selected for concerts given
by prominent musicians.
Fancy a delicate young lady strap
ping around her waist a circingle of
coarse canvass, red, white, blue, or
yellow, fastened with yellow leather
thongs and you have what is regarded
as "sweet" at the present time. The
wider the more stylish. An epidemic
of belts has certainly broken out and
is spreading. Exclusive houses are
making up more refined specimens in
silk of varions colors which are fast
ened by expensive straps of alligator
skin is one of our rages and permeates
the entire world of satchels, pocket
books, belts, bags and the like ; noth
ing being thought as lovely as the
crimpled yellowish, mottled surfaces.
The real is quite expensive, but imi
tations run riot and are cheap. What
is left of the female mind after belts
are exhausted runs to parasols, and
bills are brought in not as formerly
for one, two, or three parasols, but for
a wine colored one to match a wine
colored costume; blue and ecru to
match a blue and ccru toilette, and so
But going bz.ck to belts what do
they signify ? They mean the final
departure of the princess costume and
the establishment of the panier style
of dress. Bunched on the hips and
bouffant in the back. For do you not
see that a belt does not harmonize
well with an expanse of close fitting
corset like whalebone extending be
low ?. Something bunchy and bouffant
is much more to the purpose. So
here is a reason not only for belts,
but for sashes which this summer have
suddenly come to life again. Another
evidence of the approaching reign of
bn.hiness (I cant find any other
word) is the display of bustles which
dismal to tell are en the increase. I
hate to write this, for of all odious
things they are most so, yet what are
fashion writers put in the world for if
not to tell the truth, then again there
are prophecies of small hoops to keep
out tho untrimmed skirts, but we wont
indulge in horrid anticipations. Be
fore leaving the subject of costumes I
will mention a pretty blue camel's
hair and satin costume worn by a
young beauty of fourteen at Saratoga
made Lucille Skirt and Floy basque.
This would be suitable for a miss of
sixteen or a girl of ten or twelve.
FALL DRESS GOODS.
Of course it will be quite a while
before thet'e are shown but I have had
admittance to a sanctum where only a

and so I can prophesy. Striking nov

me! hasn't he an appetite! It

'Indeed, the metamorphosis,
both physical and mental, that
had taken place in the boy by the
time the school-year had closed
was something wonderful. Al
though he refused to take his din
ners at the hotel after the first
term at my expense, he continued
taking them there during the year,
paying for them by doing errands,
pumping water, etc. He grew
plump and sleek, learned to read,
spell and write, and after a short
time had little or no difficulty
with the four fundamental pro
cesses of arithmetic. All his old
time nervousness, irritability and
frequent fits of apathy were gone.
He readily fell into studious ways
and soon mastered whatever he
undertook. His dogged persis
tence was remarkable. His de
portment was also exemplary; he
never gave me the least trouble,
and tried to serve me every way
in his power.
'In due time I entered Vassar,
and graduated. Subsequently I
taught here and there a year or
two and then married my bus
band, whom you have met here.
Having heard nothing whatever
of Tom Strong, or from this vil
lage for years, pne day, just after
I had begun housekeeping, I was
surprised to got a letter with the
familiar name-of Marshton upon
it as the postmark ; here it is, for
1 brought it down with me this
morning, having determined to
confide to you this, one of the
pleasantest episodes of my life,
some time during the day, were
you at leisure and willing to
grant me the opportunity.'
I took the letter in my hand.
Its chirography was plain but
handsome, and it read:
MARSHTON, April 18, 18-.
Mrs. Rev. Dr. Andrew Knowlton:
DEAR MADAM-I saw your mar
riage in the newspapers the other
day, and that was the first and
only intelligence I have had of
you since you taught school in
this village. Are you really dear
Miss Dexter, and do you remem
ber poor stupid, Tom Strong ?
Well, I am he. In short, I want
to thank you for making a man of
me. Thbe first realization I ever
had that I was a human being1
ike the other boys of your school,
wvith capabilities for self-improve
ment and future usefulness, came
through your labors in my be"alf
in the school room, and your
haritable piovision for my bodi
y wants at good Mrs. Rugg's
bountiful table. When you found
me .1 was nearly starved, body
and soul. I well remember just
how those dinners, meal by
meal, built me up, mentally as well
as physically. Those reading les
sons in the New Testament, too,
built me* up in a spiritual way.
In every sense of the word I was
born again' that memorab5le year
nder, your kind care. I kept on
taying at the hotel, doing chores
for board and schooling. I crept
up and up, until Mrs. iRugg died,
when I became proprietor of the
otel myself. Our pleasant village
ere by the sea has grown to be
uite a famous summer resort.
To keep pace with the public de
ands, I have greatly enlarged
the hotel, and have added many
odern improvements. And now
I beg leave to invite you and your
istinguished husband to come and
ake me a visit whenever it shall
e most convenient to you.
yours, most gratefully,
THOMAs HL STRONG.
I handed back the letter to the
weet little woman, the eyes of
oth of us suffused with tears,
while she said: 'Thbe July follow
ng the receipt of this letter, when

an, we accepted the invitation,
nd have been here every year

AN GLD-TIME DUEL.-Among
the many bloody duels on record
as having been fought by Con- t
gressmen was one of which James
Jackson' of Georgia, who had been b
and who was afterward a United
States Senator, was the challenged
party. He was 'an Englishman,' g
like the hero of 'Pinafore,' by
birth, but he went to Savannah
when a lad, studied law, was a
leading Freemason, and fought h
gallantly in the revolutionary war.
He killed Lienteiant Governor t
Wells in 1780 in a duel, and was
engaged in several other 'affairs of
honor,' until he finally determined
to accept a ehallenge on such
terms as would make it his last "
duel. So he prescribed as the
terms that een party armed with P
a double-barreled gun, loaded
with buckshot, and with a hunting C
knife, should row himself in a e
skiff to designated points on op- e
posite sides of the Savannah river. b
When the city clock struck twelve
each party should start and row b
his skiff to a small island in the 0
middle of the river, which was
wooded and covered with under- d
brusb. On arriving at the island
each party was to moor his skiff,
stand by it for ten minutes. and U
then go about on the island until
the meeting took place. The
seconds waited on the mainland i~
until about one o'clock, when they ii
heard three gunshots and loud n
and angry cries. Then all was t
still. At daylight, as had been n
ag-reed upon, the seconds went to I
the island and found Jackson lying i:
on the ground insensible from the ']
loss of blood, and his antagonist o
lying across him, dead. Jackson ii
recoveiod, but would never relate v
his experience on that night, nor 2j
was he ever challenged again. He t:
died in Washington, serving his p
second term as United States u
Senator, March 19, 1806. - f
A STORY TELLER VANQUISHED. a
-'When I was a young man,' t
said Col. B., we lived in Illinois. 5:
The farn had been well wooded, b
and the stumps were pretty thick. c
But we put the~ corn in among fi
them, and managed to raise a fair
crop. The next season I did my
share of the plowing. We had a
'sulky' plow, and I sat in the seat
and managed the hcrses, four ase
handsome bays as ever a man
drew rein over. One day I found0
a stump right in miy way, I hated
to be": out, so Ijust said awordt
to 21. . ~.m, and, you'll believe it,
they just walked that plow righta
through that stnmp as though itc
had been cheese.' Not a soul ex- ?

I had a similar experience myself r<
once. My mother always madoe
our clothes in those days, as welln
as the cloth they were made of.
The old lady was awfully proud h
of her homespun-said it was the

day I had just plowed through ac
white oak stump in the way you
speak of, colonel. But it was lit

way, and nipped the seat of my
trousers. I felt mean, I can tell
