IT MIGHT IIAYE BEEU.
It was Monday morning. It vras also
"washing day-"' in a house where the family
consisted of a husband and wife and frro
Email children, the latter of whom wcro
gifted with a perfectly marvelous faculty and
facility for '-rending and destroying,' Tind
especially for soiling, beyond hope of redemp
tion, every clean garment with which their
much-enduring mother provided them during
the week. Mm. Stefane, liko all other moth
ers, was proud of her children and liked to
see them neat and cleanly dressed, even be
vond tho average necessity of a child's siinplo
toilet Consequently her washing basket
Monday morning was a sight calculated to
strike awo and terror into tho soul of any
voung maiden on tho brink of matrimony.
She ?at illy tapping tho red-covered wash
ing book with hfr ivory pencil, while her
eyes rested on the basket at her feel, but not
with thoir usual calmly-satisfied glance.
Something was evidently wrong. What
'Eightv-fivo dollars for tho lace pocket
handkerchief she carried,"' said tho wifo of
twelve years' standing, musingly; "and oi0
for her shawl, while that silk dress of hers
would Ji03itivcly stand alone. Ah, me! it is
w. 11 i her! And I might have been Judgr.
nowcli's wire nryvclf, for ho asked mo to
marry hiai sur months before he ever saw her,
and was fit to blow his brains out when I re
fus"d him. At least ho said ho was. Ah,
And then tho .lady sighed again, and gave
t"if washing basket a spiteful shove with her
-Mother, I can't find mj' 51100!"
'Mother, do you know where my bhio
"Mother, will you como and fasten this
frock? It is so tiresome."
"Mother, isn't breakfast most ready."'
"Munzor, mo tiss you."'
These exclamations buret upon her care, as
tho doors of tho nursery suddenly opened,
and showed five curly-headed, rosy-cheeked,
healthy-looking girls and boys, who looked
at her wonderingly, as she neither rose nor
replied to their questions.
''Mother, isn't brcakfttrf most ready?"' called
out tho nnst venturesome of tho little brood,
tho blue-eyed Tommy, who had already Jisked
that question once before.
Tho interruption sounded harshly. Tho
mind of tho thoughtful woman war; absent
from the body ai that moment, wandciing
back through tht 10-y paths of the past,
where a handsome and wealthy lover camo
tov.oo. And now, in the ; -resent, she was
tho hard-worked v. iff cf a poor and strag
gling man; th- . i'm r nt Cvo troublesome
human being. frr hJse Bake nil .such Ikj.uu
tiful vanities a.s Ja p ha?idkeuhi-fs, and India
shawls, and iilks that ' would ct :nd alone,"
must be forever given up
Tho contrast was a very decided and by
no means a pleasant one. Sho looked up.
'Go away, children, all of you, at once!"'
shefiaid.ina harsh voice. "Breakfast isn't
ready yet, and I'mruiol don't know when
it will le, with such a pack of young
troubles to hxk alter. There, go down
btairs, every one of you, and don't speak
to mo till I get this washing list made
Looking at each other with a mortified and
crestfallen air, the children stole away, one
after tho other, and went down to the break
fast room, hcro their father sat reading his
paper, and waiting patiently for the morning
Presently tho round of many voices and
much laughter penetrated to tho upper room,
where tho mother still sat brooding alono.
She listened a moment or two, and then roso
from her chair.
'What a noise they do mako when they arc
all together!"' she said, fretfully. "And, oh.
dear, how discouraged mid weary of it rill I
do fee!! 1 will lie down for fivo minutes, and
Ann can take in breakfast to them all. If
they have that they will not miss me! How
strangely my head does feel! Eighty-five
dollais for one single pocket handkerchief!
It Is really loo bad that I should be drudging
here day in and da' out, with hardly a decent
gown once a 3'ear, while she "
A strange, drowsy feeling overcame her
and hushed her troubloand repining together.
Her eyelids closed. Her head sank back upon
the pillow. She slept, or seemed to sleep.

Rising up from that long slumber at last,
but still feeling strangely heavy and dull,
Mi". Stefane went down btairs, idly reproach
ing herself for her desertion of her husband
and children at the breakfast hour. But th6
breakfcbt room was empty, though tho de
serted table gaveaniploandsaflicientcvidencc
that her absence had by no means affected
tho appetites of the part.
She mug the bell. Tho Irijh servant an
swered. "Where is your master?-' asked Mi's. Si v.
fane, ieeling strangely hurt that she should
have K put such a question to a servant as to
her husband's whereabouts.
'The master, ma'am," said the good na
i ured Ann with a broad smile. "Sure, ma'am,
and he said ho'd bo after taking all the
childer down tho river, as it was Mich a fiuo
day. They wore jit wild to go, tho dar
ling!'' 'Down the river!' gaspod Mrs. Stefane,
feeling a if she could not believo her cars.
That "down tho river trip" had been a long
looked for and eagerly discussed pleasure to
he bhaivd 13 tho whota family and by her!
And they had gone and left her!
"You see, ma'am. you was in such a beauti
ltil .-.lapo tuat the master would not have you
disturbed," went on the stupid but good
natured Ann. "And so ho told mo to dress
tho childer myself, and I did. And very
pretty they looked, tho little darlings!"'
"Chvir the breakfast things away!"' said
'Yes, ma'am. I left tho table for you,
thinking vou might 1 hungry after your
slapo. Won't I bring you a cup of coffee,
ma'am, and a frc,h roll or two'

She might well ask the question. Mrs. Ste
fane rushed frcm tho 100m liko a mad
woman, caught bonnet and shawl from the
hall rack as .she parsed, and was out in the
street tho next moment, hurrying frantically
along toward the offices where tho tickets of

Piercing her way thror.gh the living mass by

of corner buildings to prevent loafers from
making the neighboring sidewalk a gather

effectual than that adopted at tho Western
Union building, at Twenty-third street and
Fifth avcmio. There are neither railings nor
heavy spikes to keep the loafers from as
sembling, and, indeed, tho construction of
tho building itself is such as to have the most
inviting look for theso people. Under the
windows, between the doorways, there are
broad ledges, which appear liko cool and in
viting teats. Tha pneumatic tubes, which
run from tlm point to tho Western Union
building down town, require steam for their
operation, and from the boilers under the
building, placed there for this tcrvic, juncs

It is a dog story, and this particular dog
was assistant smuggler to n Frenchman
who arrived from Liverpool a short lime
ago on the American line steamer British
Princess. The customs officers, when
they boarded the vessel, noticed the dog,
a big Newfoundland, acting rather qucer
ly, and they took it aboard the govern
ment's cutter and examined it. Just be
low the dog's neel: in a pocket in the
dog's breast they found a silk bag, which
contained. 200 diamonds, all the stones
being of great value. The Frenchman
tried to prevent the search, but without
avail. The stones were sent to the treas
ury at Washington to await confiscation
by the court. Cor. Globe-Democrat.

Dr. W. T. Greene suggests an easily

His plan is to attach a piece of rubber
tubing to a burner, the tubing lwing long
enough to reach the floor. The gas is
turned on just enough, to make a p?rcepti

If paront? think that children do not notico

serious mi-ak. Children see quickly and
