The Hope and Fruition of Bessie
Thornwell's Easter.
THE OLD CAROLINA HOME
The Innocent Flower Reared in All the
Sweetness of Refined Seclusion
Passed Into a More Glorious
Easter Than Earth Could
Celebrate.

i the worm fences: lilies of the
rvallby. violets, buttercups aud dnn
-joeliOns carpeted the meadows, while
jtrt?Stpot flowers and laurel blossoms
*.e.nt glory to the neighboring swamp.
$Th? .thrush, cardinal grosbeak and
raoaVSngbfrrT rilled the air with melody,
as though heralding the coming of the
JChrist day. The youth and buoyancy
i?f-the vernal season were in consonance
?vith the life and protni.se of the girl,,
jfjat'buddiug into beautiful woman
J.ow supremely happy she wns as tho
tefnl breaths of the mimosa reached
aetf nostrils sind as sho looked out upon
tho/groat forest trees that gloried in
their dolicato vernal robes. She
thought reverently of the approaching
.?day, when, clad in white robes and
{bearing offorings of Easter Bowers,
*<pho would take her first communion,
tthp'only cjiild of her widowed mother
?nd Mio darling of hor old nugro "mam

flushed and excited.
' "I have been down among the bay
?trees and cypresses, mamma, und am so
jvery tired," she Raid, wearily.
The doctor came und looked grave.
(Night shudows fcll upon the.oarlh, and

jthe rn&irfen and the spirit of irrtiprcssi

?The wan face lighted in an expiring
jgrance, and the feeble lips whispered:

A spinster, who is of a timid disposi?
tion, was usked recently Low uhe dare
to live, alone ilm she did. "I haven't
mueli faith in locks und keys, nor in
l>olts,und bars;" she replied. "I know
that a genuine burglar would snap his
finders at any of them. Hut I have a
better protection than nny of those, or
than n dog that might be poisoned, or
nn ain.ni] which I inirrht have no oppor?
tunity to sound. My own sleeplng
rooru is the only one I barricade in this
manner, hut I defy the housebreaker to
pet in then-. Every uight.J. roll my
heuvy bed against the: locked door, or
elue i pull the chiffonier over there. No
one. outside could possibly push it to
one. .side. And no one eouid pet in un?
less he did. So 1 feel amply protected.
I havenl a patent on this burglar-proof
arrangement.''_

We are apt to speak of hail and sleet
as being very si-.uiltir phenomena, but,
in fact, they are widely different. True,
haiistuncs are composed of alternate
concentric layers <>f hard opaque and
transparent ice. in the hitittudeof Mis?
souri hail seldom falls except in sum1
ruer. Sleet, on the com vary, always
ful'b in winter or late full or early
epriti?-, und is composed of minute part?
icles of transparent ice. It is canned
by rain falling from a high, warm
cloud, which has a stratum of cold nir
lying directly beneath as a rule, but
this cold air stratum may be immediately
above the earth's surface. In this
event it will be notrced that there is a
mixture of rain and ice particles which
full and give everything an icy coating.

"Squeaky shoes." said Mr. tiratebar,
"I don't like; but 1 rather admire a
squeaky rocking-chair, if it is old and
exunforlable. 1 shouldn't like to have a
new ehair squeak, but with nn old chair
it is different; that has <.-arn?-d a right
to squeak. Of course, 1 shouldn't like
to have it squeak too much, for that
would imply that it was Insecure, and
without security there can be no com?
fort; but 1 like to have it squeak gen?
tly, with one arm or one leg just a lit
tie loose. It doesn't squeak at ail un?
less* you rock back jus? so far. and then
it squeaks with precisely the same
sound always, a rhythmic squeak that
has rest and comfort in every note."
