B. J. KEND'ALL & Co.. GENTS: In justice to
you and myself. I think I ought to let you
know that I have removed two bone spa
vins with 'Kendall's Spavin Cure.' one very
large one, don't know how long the spavin
had been there. I have owned the horse
eight months. It took me four months to
take the large one off and two for the small
one. I have used ten bottles. The horse is
entirely well, not at all stiff, and no bunch
t4 be seen or felt. This is:a wonderful med
icne. It isa neW thing here, but if it does
fqr all what it h-4s done for me its sale will
be very great. Respectfully yours.

Well, to begin!
First put the cowslip under his chin,
And when you see that dimpledest place
Of all his dimpled and russet face
Show just the tint that the cowslip shows,
'[hat is a sure proof, I suppose,
That the little boy (I mean our Ned)
Is fond of butter upon his bread.
So far, so good!
But what if the rosy surface should
Show no tint of the yellow at all?
I should say that the flower was too small,
Or that something else was wrong in the test,
For whatever the sign is I know best!
Signs sometimes fail; but I know that Ned
Likes plenty of butta. upon his bread.
Perhaps the tan
On the sun-browned cheek of the little man
Dulls the mirror to.which I bold
The blossom up to reflect its gold
Or else the dimples ripple the glass
Where the shadow of color ought to pass,
And only the warm blood show instead;
But he does like butter npon his bread.

What a world of changes vaca
tion brings to the innocent young
school-girl-what a revolution of
thought, fact and fancy! In all
our future, will ever the weecks
cotne to us, garlanded with roses
and radiant with the fancies of
the heart, as they came to us in
the days of summer vacations?
That was what Elsie Dale was
thinking. as she sat beside the
river, dipping her water-lily buds
in the cool tide, and watching the
birds' nests in the rushes.
She was homeless and mother
less, and all the other girls were
full of happy anticipations, as they
clustered on the one green spot of
shadow under the giant elm tree.
And yet, beneath it all, there was
a throb of exultation in her
'I am to have a season at Sara
toga,' said Cynthia Vail, the beau.
ty of the school. 'Mamma says I
am young, but then very young
girls are all the fashion now.'
'I am to go to the Adirondacks

strengrthen my lungs,' said Mary
'I am to have music lessons from
Sig[nor Ballentando !' triumphant
ly proclaimed little Boll Burton.
'Tell us, .Elsie, dear, what are you
going to do ?'
'Exactly tho opposite from you,
Bell,' said Elsie, laughiug, while
the dinmples came into her chin
and the carmine color into her
cheek. 'I shall spend my vaca
tion in giving music lessons, so
that I can test my own capacity
and earn a little money f'or the
Bell Burton looked with wide
open eyes of surpise5.
'Oh, Elsie!' cried she, 'do you
believe you can ?'
'I shall try,' said Elsie, bravely.
'I can't possibly fancy a music
teacher without false hair and
spectacles,' said Bell.
'Madam Duchesne is very kind,'
said 'Miss Dale. 'She has got me
this situation, because she knew
that I w anted remunerative em
ployment during the vacation.
Some lady wvrote to her, from the
Shawangunta mountains-one of
those castellated mansions on the
heights, you know, that one
dreams about-that she wanted
her to come out and giv ea quar
ter's lesssons in her~ family. And
Madam Duchesne could not leave
town, so she wrote to propose me
for a substitute.'
'Are you to have many pupils ?'
inquired Bell, with interest.
'A girl or boy'?'
'I don't know,' said Elsie. 'I
thin nk I would rather have a girbs
if I am to choose. But Madam
Daebe~sine says that boy are ''ften

The next day ca'me, with its
flower-hung halls, its band of' mu
sic, and blue-ribboned diplomas,
and sweet bustle of departure
ad when the gray shadows of
evening fell, Elsie Dale was on her
way to Mount Sorel, in the Shaw
She bad never been out of the'
('.y efore,oxyept during- the
year she had been at boarding
school at the expense of the eccen
tric old aunt, who had lately be
thought herself to die, leaving all
he'r property to a sectarian 'Home
for Old Ladies,' and the sublime
;rests of the everlasting bills were
as new as they were delightful to
her. Glens, cascades, wild gorges
and detolate ravines, clothed with
the black-green growth of pines
and cedars, succeeded one another
in bewildering array-and the
mountain stage was actually at
the door of Mount Sorel before
Elsie realized that she was more
than half-way on her journey.
It was a fine old mansion, with
a central tower of gray stone, and
two long, low wings, situated up
on a level plateau on the hillside,
with a wall of almost perpendicu
lar mountain at the rear, and a
superb view extending to the I
An old colored servant-man,
with wool as white as snow, and
a suit of genteel black, came to
'Is Mrs. Sorel at home ?' Miss
Dale demanded, with what dignity
she might command.
'Yes, miss, do missis she's to
home,' briskly answered the sable
'Tell her it is the music teach
er,' said Elsie.
And the old man showed her
into a pre-ty little apartment,
hung with antique chintz all
sprinkled with trees and-butter
flies in colors that would have
driven a naturalist wild.
A fire o:f some scented wood
blazed on a low marble hearth,
and was far from disagreeable
among these chill mountain
heights, August evening though it
Presently a stout lady, in black
silk and fluttering cap-strings,
came hurrying in.
'Goodness gracious me !' ejaca
lated :the stout lady in black
'there's some mistake.' .
Elsie rose up and dropped an
'There is no mistake, mna'am, 1
think,' said she.
'But you are a child,' said Mrs.
'I am eighteen, ma'am,' said
'I wrote for Madam Dachesne.'
'Madam Duchesne could not
come,' said Elsies, feeling her
eartthrobs begin to accelerate.
'I am her favorite pupil, and she
was convinced tbat I could repre

'1 have received no letter,' said
Mrs. Sorel, still viewing Elsie
through her eyeglasses as if she
were some sort of an unaccount
able rara avis.
Then succeeded another em
barrassing silence, which Elsie
Dale felt must be broken at all
'If you would be so good as to
introduce me to my pupil,' said
she, 'I think-'.
'Oh, certainly.' said Mrs. Sorel,
with a little hysterical laugh, 'I
will introduce you to your pupil.'
And opening a door which slid
gently back under porteres of
pink and blue chintz, she led the
way into a study lined with books,
where, by the soft light of a sha
ded lamp, sat a dignified gentle
man of thirty, busy over a heap of
'My son, tiLe rector of the pa
rish,' said she. 'Rudolph, allow
me to introduce you to Miss Dale,

invisible, through a crack in the
'Rudolph has had every musical
advan tage.at Prague and Viennha,'

Duchesnae iias a reputation for

son thought it might be well to
refresh his memory with a course
of lessons in Haydn and Mozart

Elsie color-ed like a rose.
'I am.i very sorry,' said she ;
'and so wilL Madame Duchesne be.
She thought1-and L thought, too
-that the mmpl waPN child. I
believe I am pretty wel!-grounteo
in my musical education. but of
course I couldn't undertake to
teach a gentleman like Mr. Sorel.
Perhaps I had better return to
New York by the morning's
Here Elsie, quite forgetful of
her dignity, burst into tears.
'Stop a minute !' said Mr. Sorel,
gently. 'Why should yoa t,ot re

my little choir boys in my stead ?
And while they are still in the
rudiments you can be practicing
'If I could earn my board in
that way,' Elsie said, feebly.
'You can do a great deal more
than that,' said Mr. Sorel, kindly.
'And now, mother, I am sure our
pale little visitor needs ti. cup of:
Hospitable Mrs. Sorel made
haste to conduct her to the break
fast-room, where fragrant tea,
boiled chicken, and biscuits as
light as a puff of snow, were
spread appetizingly on a little
round table, glittering with old
silver, and lighted with wax can
dles in antique bronze sconces.
'That was an excellent thougI-ht
about the eboir-boys.' said Mrs
Sorel as she pou:rel the thick
yellow cream into Elsie's cup.
'ow, wasn't it, my dear?'
'If-if you are quite sure that
it wasn't merely to make me feel
easy about staying here ?' faltered
Mrs. Sorel smiled wisely.
'Nothing would have induced
him to say what he did not think,'
said she. 'Rudolph is truth it
So Elsie stayed at Mount Sorel,
going down day by day to the
little chapel among the wild
mountain ledges, with its pictur
esque gables and windows of
stained glass, to teach the small
choir-boys the difference between
sharps and fiats, 'sol fa's 're mi's.'
And then, when the lesson was
over, she wandered inlto the ra
vines, gathered rare ferns and
copied slender-stemmed wild flow
ers in water colors, and grew as
rosy as a milkmaid.
Until September came, with the
early frosts that turned the ferrns
to gold, and hung pen nons cf scar
let and russet among the maplie
trees in the glen ; and then, one
day, Rudolph Sorel found Miss
Dale sitting gravely on the moss
covered rocks, beside the moun
tain spring, with an unwonted
shadow on her face.
'What are you thinking of ?' he
asked. with a smile.
'I am thinking what I shali do
this fall,' said she. 'Whether to
advertise in the city papers for
music scholars, or to open a little
day-school in some unpretentious
quarter of the town.'
'Why do you go away from
here at all ?' he asked ,grav ely.
'Because I have my living to
'But whby can't you earn it here?'
'Because there is nothing to
od,' she replied.
'Are you quite certain of that ?'
he asked, gently. 'There is a great
deal to do, E!sie Dale. I want
you to stay at Mount Sorel-to
stay for my sake. I want you to
be my wife. Elsie !'
'Oh,' cried Elsie, clasping her
bands, 'if onliy I were sorthy of

'Sweetheart my life would be a
vain void without you, now that I

So when Maclame Duchesne
wrote to Elsie Dale that she had
found a situation for her, Elsie
Dale wrote back to Madame Du
chesne that she had found one for
herself; and that it had njothi ng
to do with music lessons either.

IINTI'S TO' TuE CONUIP
The diet of the conzumptive
should be simple and nutritious
very strict rules as to special ar
ticles of diet are uncalled fur, un
less the stomach should have ex
hibited unusual signs of imperfect
power. *Meat should be taken
once or twice a day, with a good
allowance of fat. Fi.h is uutri
tious, especially oysters. Milk is
very nutritious, and two or three
pints may be taken in the course
of the day. At the Hospital for
Consumption at. Brompton many
pf the patients have a glass of rum
and milk the first thing in the
morning, before breakfast, to hell)
them to dress, and undoubtedly it
often does good. Asses' milk may
be taken when ordinary milk dis
agrees. Another favorite prescrip
tion is fat bacon for breakfast.
Sugar is veiy fattening, and there
is no objection to taking it even
in considerable quantities. A mod
erate allowance of wine or spirits
is advisable, but it should be taken
with caution when it flushes the
face or quickens the pulse. Mod
erate and frequeit exerci,- in the
open air is essential. We do know
that now and again it is very essen
tial to "change the air ;" buc we
consider that to do that with any
chance of advantage it is neces
sary to go far afield ; and we think
also that such change of the air
is only needful when sickness of
the body has come upon us, or
when it threatens to come. When
nothing else can be done, sitting
out in the open air should always
be insisted on-in a garden, on a
balcony, or even at an open win
dow. Anything is better than
remaining shut up in the same
room frcm morning to night. We
heard of a man who, on being told
that riding was beneficial, hired
a horse and galloped about lill be
was so exhausted that he did not
recover for a fortnight. Exercise
should be carried to a point short
of producing fatigue. In ordinary
cases of consump)tion there is not
the slightest occasion for the pa.
tient to keep his room, but still it
is very important that the. sleep
ing apartment should be p)roperIy
ventilated. The great thing is to
get as much pure air as possible
consistent with warmth and the
absence of draughts. Only a mod
erate temperaturs should be per
mitted, so that when in bed the
patient does niot feel cold. In
summer, good ventilation should
be secured by~ letting down the
windows for an ic or so at the
tolp. At the Hospital for Con
sumption at Brompton the wards
and galleries are kent, winter and
summer, at a uniformn tempera
ture of a little over 60 deg. Thbe
policy of this system is open to
question, and, in the opinion of
many competent judges, the pa
tients would do better if the temn
perature were considerably re
CRUsHED.-A dashing young
fellow was very attentive to a
young lady who secretly did not
favor his attentions, and who was
blessed with an observing little
brother of only a few summer's
growth. The lady's admirer was
visitingr her when the little chap
broke into their presence, and,
mountin!g the dashing young
man's knee, said :'Haven't you
got a tine room ?' 'Oh, yes,'
proudly replied the dashing young
fel!ow, whose vanity was evident
ly touched by the remark. See
