And then, as he gazsd to the further shore,
The coat slipped off and was sees, mo moce.
As he entered Heaven ; his suit of gray
Went quietly sailing away, away:
And none of the Ansrels Questioned him

Halloween at Farmdale. BY S. ANNIE FROST.
The first time I saw Alison Fairfield
one lovely Sunday morning, early
May, when she came into the Sun
day sobool. holdinsr timidlr bv the hand
ofJthe kind superintendent. As she
. .i .1.. .i t . i. v .-T
entered the door, I was struck by tbe
great sweetness of the shy fair face,
ualf. kidden' by the broad brim of her
cheap straw hat, and by the grace of
poorly clad little figure, I was glad
when the superintendent led her to my
I have trough t you a new scholar,
MTss Annie, sire is small, but I think
he is quite capable of taking her place
here." .. . .. . .
For mine was an advanced class, and
little Alison was certainly younger than
any of my scholars.
How old are you dear?" I asked, as
shyly took her seat.
"Eleven In April."
"And you have been at Sunday school
before?" : .
"No, ma'am, papa taught me, bnt he
dead' and tbe tears gathered in her
soft bloe eyes, "and mamma wants me
come here, if you will be good en
ough to allow me."
We are always very glad when little
girls, come here," I said, wondering
where the child had acquired a slight
foreigmccent, that was very winninz.
soon found my new scholar would
put to vhame the big girls around her,
whose, limited advantages for educa
tion; in. our small village, made their
simple Bible studies difficult. She read
with.ea.se, and a remarkable power of
. .. . . .
rciw.iitiuu iu one so youug, giving to me
inspired writings a beauty they rarely
attain in so young a voice, and when
we closed tbe holy volume and talked of
wlist we had read, my new scholar sur
prised me by the knowledge she shewed
sac rati subjects. It was no parrot
tike repetition of verses of Scripture,
but a clear, bright adaptation of truths
the daily life, that proved conclusive
tli.it slie had lived under Christian
influence, where Christianity was loved
After service was over I saw Alison
again, walking quietly by tbe side of a
tall, pale lady in deep mourning, who
tok the road leading directly to the
village, while mine led me down shady
lanes, nearly a mile away, to my home,
Farmdaie, where I lived my lonely life,
with only Margery my servant for com-
pany, and the servants about the place
It was probably my . monotonous nn
eventful life that made me think so
much during tlio ensuing week of my
little scholar, with her golden hair and
sweet, fair face. A few lines here
must write myself, that my later story
may be clear.
I was tbe only child and orphan heir
ess of John Gardiner, who had inheri
ted Farmdaie from father aud grand
father, but who had left home when
young to seek and find fortune in tbe
ajreat city of New York. From my
babyhood I had been very shy and fond
of seclusion, and tho happiest days of
my childhood were spent at the old
homestead, visiting my grandparents
I was eighteen when I was betrothed to
one, wt) loving me well, won my love,
and died a week before our appointed
wedding-day, holding my hand last in
his own.- A year later my father died.
leaving me a house in New York, a
handsome income, and Farmdaie, for
bis parent Had beea dead some year.
I was sad and wanted seel as ion. 1 rent
ed the house in. the city, reiased. my
guardian's offer of a home in his fami.
ly, and moved to Farmdaie. Books,
music, a grand piano and many im
provements in furniture crept into the
homestead as year after year rolled by
and I wag known as a "learned lady
amongst the villagers of "Steele,", tbe
little village,a mile from Farmdaie,who
regarded my foreign literature and mu
sic as proofs of profound erudition.
I will not deny that I was often lone
ly and longed for companionship, yet
my life suited ma, and I had passed my
thirtieth birthday when Allison Fair
field came to Steele.
It was Tuesdajbtnorning, wbea Marg
ery, coming home from the village, told
me of the new people, the widow Fair
field and her daughter.
She has rented the little cottage by
the bridge. Itias Armie, where Mrs. Lee
used to live, and put np a paper sign in
the window for sewing. . Ah me! its
little she'll make with a needle at Steele,
where they'd sew . all night to save a
dollar, any of them." r . "j
I could not defend the village from
this accusation, knowing how fond of a
dollar, ana now nam working its peo
ple were, but I said, v There are all
those pillow-cases and sheets, Margery.
"Laws me, Miss Annie, 111 find plen
ty of time for those."
"But I think I will hare the pillow
cases refilled and trimmed, Margery."
"There you go," she answered; "al
ways looking out for other folks. As if
couldn't see it's all to give the poor
woman a chance. Well, go Along for
an angel as yon are!"
By which it will be seen Margery
rather over-estimated ay merits, a hab
it she had from tbe time I could toddle
out, a wee babe, to have my enp filled
at milking time.
I drove out to the village in the after
noon in my little basket carriage, and
took the pillow-cases to the widow. It
was not long before she was tearfully
telling me her story, and I was drawing
my own conclusions.
Her husband had been a literary man
and had spent most of his married life

reading the tales written under such
peculiar inspiration, some sad, some

Four years sped away, and there was
no chauge at Farmdaie, save that Alison
was becoming a woman, and her moth
er was falling in health. Another year
passed and Mrs. Fairfield died of con
sumption, after allowing me to legally
adopt her child.

years of seclusion, my property had in

As soon as I arrived, old friends who
had been my companions la young life,
locked around me, matrjons witb'fasni
lies, fathers and husbands, who had
been beardless boys when I left them.
So my Aliso" had soon a circle of friends
of her own age, and I smiled to see how
tbe shy little country maiden developed
into the city belle. For her beauty, her
great talents and accomplishments soon
gave her a prominent position amongst
her companions, and she was fe(ed and
courted to my heart's content.
Ever gentle and sweet, keeping some
thing always of the shy grace ot her
childhood, she was yet self-possessed
and refined in society, seeking rather to
remain unnoticed than to be conspicu
ous. There were soon admirers clus
tering around tho lovely girl,'some won
no doubt by the supposition that
would make my adopted child my heir-
ness, but others attracted by the loveli-
nf Alison herself.
Soon I knew that the young, pure
heart was opening and expanding to
influences. Soon I learned that one
voice could call faint hlushes to my
darling's fair,round cheek. Soon I saw

she bore her sorrow silently, striving

vice, but I knew her heart was heavy,
mourning for the lost love of her youth.
So when she pleaded for the quiet of
Farmdaie and rest, I granted her re
quest, and we crossed the ocean once
more,arriving in Boston late in October.
Alison was very much exhausted by her
voyage, and we went directly to Farm
dale, purposing to make a short visit to
New York, when we had rested a few
days. . It was the last day of October,
when we sat in our own tamlllarlsliting
room,that we arranged to go to the city
tbe following week. I knew that Alison
longed to see Mrs. Morgan again, to
hear , if any further tidings bad ever
been beard from the missing son, and I
was as anxious as herself to hear.
The afternoon and evening sped away
and it was growing late when Margery
came ln.wltu a great ball of yarn in her

nearly midnight, and Halloween. Try

AUUon turned so deadly pale that I
thought she was fainting, and turned
half angerly to Margery.
"Hush Miss Annie!" she wispered to
me, "the eleven o'clock train is in !"
Something in her face, her manner,
silenced the words on my lips, and
watched her while siie.bent over our pale
"I have opened all the doors to the
very gate, Miss Alison," she urged,aand
you must try my charm. Hold the end
of the yarn fast," and here she deftly
twisted the woolen string around Ali
son's passive fingers; "now roll the ball
out into the street. AVait, and your true

"Margery!" Alison cried, looking In
to the old woman's excited face "what
do you mean ?"
"Wait, darling! See! see the string is
tightening. It is lifted! He is coming.
Oh, darling! Miss Annie! See! see!"
For there in the doorway, white and
evidently still weak, but alive, stood
Fred Morgan, with the ball of yarn in
his hand, smilling at the device Mar
gery had tried to break the shock of sur

Margery and I were crying heartly in

The Educational Flurry in
Editor Times: An attempt having
been made to reinstate Dr. Diefendorf
Vermillion Institute, and failing, is
creating quite a sensation in Hayesville.
When tbe Doctor returned to the vil
lage, some time ago, a desire to have
him again identified with the school
was manifested. - Accordingly -a com
mittee was appointed by the citizens to
wait upon Prof. Martin, the present
President, to ascertain if arntnonntnits
oould be madelo. barestfhocttir asso
ciated with him. - The negotiation be
tween the committee and Prof. Martin
failing in its object, the proposition was
carried to the Board of Trustees, by
whom it was also rejected. The friends
the Doctor seemed Indignant over
this and called a meeting of the citizens
whom the Doctor addressed at consid
erable length, vindicating himself as to
certain charges made against him by
the Board. He also remarked that he
no more expected to have anything to
with Vermilion Institute, when he
came here than be expected to take a
trip to the moon, and God forbid that
should lay a straw in its way. On
the evening of the 27th, another meet
ing was held at which tbe action of tbe
Board was condemned and tbe abilities
and better qualities of the Doctor were
delineated in a way to leave the impres
sion that he had been impolitely treated.
The Doctor, himself, announced that he
would open an independent school, if
the citizens would guarantee the pay
ment of .tuition of a difinite number of
There is quite a diversity of opinion
about the questions involved. Some
say the Doctor's actions are at variance
with some of his declarations, while
others think the Board has infringed
upon their rights. Bnt whether the one
the other is right we do not presume
say, but we do assert that either the
one or the other is mistaken. But from
our knowledge we judge that the Board
could not have acted "otherwise, for, if
we are correctly Informed, there is a
contract by which Prof. Martin holds
the Presidency ot the Institution for
eighteen months from hut June.
Subsequently there has been another
meeting held, at which the legal right
the Presbyterian Church to the
grounds and buildings of the college
was discussed, and a . committee ap
pointed to employ counsel, and now it
seems the way Is opening for litigation.
As to the rights legally, we bave noth
ing to say, but we incline the opinion
that somebody is "taking a leap in
tbe dark," and should the question ever
have to be discussed by legal gentle
man the history of Vermillion will be
recorded In the journals of the court in
as glaring a manner as that recorded by
the Bev. Diefendorf himself.
Now, as to the right to assemble and
discuss questions of a public nature
none will doubt; but as to the propriety
of discussing the private character of
individuals, as has beeu done in some
of those meetings, there is much doubt.
Judging from effects already produced,
there are reasons to fear worse, for It
has caused dissention in the church and
as we are informed, the pastor has ten
dered his resignation. Taking the whole
we are Inclined to think it is strange
conduct for those Rev. Seniors who pro
fess to be a light to the world. Whether
we shall have an extra school in Hayes
ville remains to be seen. We are in

POSTAGE STAMP. Their Manufacture. Distribution
Postage stamps, although they carry
all kinds of information to every part
of the world, tell but little in their own
history or of the care required In their
manufacture and distribution. In the
days of their virsrin beauty they show
us something of tbe engraver's and prin
ters skill, but nothing after they have
commenced the stern business of life
and been subjected to the ignoble fate
of all stamps to be disfigured. Small
and Insignificant as they are Individu
ally, collectively they are numbered by
billions, and are worth many millions
of dollars. There are now in use one
hundred and three different classes of
postage stamps, and twenty-six thou
sand sheets of one hundred stamps each
are printed every working day. The
number of stamps nsed annually is
about six hundred and fifty millions,and
their average value is $18,000,000. To
prevent error and fraud, the sheets of
stamps are counted and recounted ten
or twelve times, registered, receipted for
and counted again, until, what with
handling and gumming,tbey leave their
original freshness and have to be pol
ished up in a hydraulic press. They are
distributed by mail to about thirty-five
thousand postoffices in tbe United States
and orders are received daily for about
13,000,000 stamps. A Government agent
gives his receipt for the stamps and ob
tains corresponding receipts from those
to whom they are distributed. They
are manufactured by the Continental
Bank Note Company, and during the
month of July the company had a stock
on hand ot 75,000,000 stamps, valued at
12,203,000. Of these 54,770,300 were three
cent stamps, 11,167,706 one cent, and 5,-
