A Rial Romance.
Many years ago tlicro suddenly ap

prepossessing youug woman calling
herself Mary Hurt. 8ho obtained
work and soon became a fnvorilo with
her acquaintances. Fifteen years af

residents of the place.

This story of her life was published

The article, was copied by a Vcr

visited Asheville, sought the editor of
the Cituen, and, together, they went
to Miis Hurt's houio. The hermit
did not recognizo tho Vcrmontcr, but
sbo toon learned that ho was her old
lover. A mistake had kept them
apart for half a century, but, when
Fletcher left Ashevillo a few days
later, Mary Burt JIowo, lor that was
the hermit's full name, accompanied
him as his wife.
Whcu Miss IIowo aad Fletcher

married. Tho young woman fancied
her lover was attached to another
girl, however, and suddenly left her

bound for Liverpool. Tho vessel was
wrecked on tho North Carolina coast,
and, after many adventures at sea in
an open boat and among triondly In

A teacher, lost Sunday, was telling

"How much did he get for it ?"
"Ho received no compensation," 10

made clear her great horror.

"fresh laid" eggs, at a largo profit.
As the eggs aro removed the coolor is

How Vaccine Virus ie Obtained.
A correspondent at Columbia, 0.,
contributes tho following: Tho Doctor
took a razor and began to shavo tho
hair from tho cow's udder. This ho
Ing accomplished in n few minutes, ho
noxt produced n sharp-pointed instru
ment and made about thrco dozen in

This being dono, tho parts were thor
oughly sponged dry, after which he
took from a glass tubo a small amount
of queer-looking stuff and npplied to
each incision made, by tho aid of a
tiny picco of ivory, pointed at ono

did not tako long, and in a short timo
tho cow was loosened from her cords,
tho pulleys wero ndjuslcd and tho anl.

original position, as easily as she had

Testing a New Magaiine Gun,
The duplex field magazine gun wa
tried at Governor's Island tho 'other
day, in tho presence of General Han
cock and a number of prominent
ofliccrs and citizens.
The gun consists of two breech
loading rifle barrels placed sido by
side in a brass caso filled with water
to keep them cool. Tho gun is ope
rated by two men, ono to feed and
the other to di-chargo the cartridges,
which is dono by turning a crank.
During the test 200 ordinary United
States- cartridges, -15 caliber, wero
first fired in 25 seconds. Then 100
were fired in 11 seconds, and nt tho
third fire tho barrels wero emptied of
500 cartridges in CS seconds. Tho
gun rotates on a swivel, and can bo
raised or depressed at any angle.

K. Batch, the Boston nowspaper man
and detective, nnd for a short timo
editor of tho Philadelphia lrc$s, re
cently heard a lady say: "I wish
somebody would invent h hairpin that
would stay in one's hair." And Mr.

Chicago the other day whether ho be
lieved the Atlauta Exposition would
help to reconcile the South with

ported by the Inter-Ocean; "It
doesn't make any difTerenco whether
they are rcoonciled or not. Tho

Not Enough Books to Co Around.
There is troublo In Havard College
on account of Iho admission of girl
students, an innovation that was re
cently made. It appears that tho
Collego has a largo library, provided
with "authorities" nnd sofn seals,
where tho students go to refresh their
memories ujwn certain points in their
studies, nnd tho compliment is the
girls will get down some work, of
which tlicro is only ono copy in tho
library, and when n young man comes
in and desires tho samo book ho is
obliged to wait until tho girl gels
through with it, or rlso sit down and
look it over with her.
On a recent occasion a venerable
professor entered tho library nnd was
surprised to seo no less than six girls
with books that young men were do
sirous of perusing, so desirous, in fact,
that tho two wero seated together
eagerly scanning the pages, when the
Tho sight fairly caused tho glass in
his spectacles to bulge out, and it
would lo a mild expression to say he
was shocked. He at once inquired
the cause of the extraordinary desire
for information that hail suddenly
sprung up, and tho young men, after
stanching the flow of blood from
wounds on their bauds, where they
had raked them on pins a few mo
menta before, told him plainly that
tlicro must bo duplicato copies of the
books provided, so that the girL could
have ono and tho young men the
other. Ho said ho would attend to it
the first thing in tho morning, and
then tho old Puritan smiled, as though
he had said something cunning.
Then ho glared around tho room at
tho girls, who, poor things, wero sit
ting with their noses close down to
tho pages of their books, and study
ing as though their hearts would
break. Then ho coughed a couple of
times, vaguely, and had tho decency
to go out.
An Ohio paper says a young lady
who graduated in a calico dress a few
years ago is now married to a railroad
superintendent who has an income of
8500,000 a year. This may bo taken
as tho basis for tho regulation of
graduation dresses hereafter. Had

point lace and diamonds, sho might
have scooped in the conductor of a
passenger train, and had onyx stair
cases and alabaster walls to her house.

The Montreal Star says that girls
who want husbands should take this
picoe of advice. Do not be too fond
of promenading the business streets at
all hours of the day. That is, do not
make a regular thing of it. Do not
go about so that people will know for
certain that you will be " down town "
when you have no business, and do
not let the impression go abroad that
you go on the beat as regularly as
clockwork. It does not look well. It
appears as if you preferred to bo on
the hunt, rather than improving
your mind, or darning your stock
ings. It looks as if being gazed at
was your highest ambition, and seeing
men stare at you more in harmony
with your tastes than making your
home happy, and your surroundings
cosy and comfortable.
