oddities, and vet with a hears soft as a
He had three romping, laughing
school-girls under his charge, and so
completely had they loaded him down
with luggage that he had grumbled and
fussed ever since they had started,
much to the amusement of the young
ladies who were used to his ways.
At the last moment a gentleman
called Mlr. 1:eed as de and asked if he
would be so kind as to take charge of
his sister, who was en route for the
city to take a position as teacher in a
large school there. In response to the
introduction, "Miss Carlton, Mr. leed,"
she only bowed, and then turned f- r a
last good-by to her brother. Jack
looked about him in dismay, frightened
at the idea of an addition to his load,
but could see nothing but a gray shawl
snugly strapped, which she carried
easily. Her traveling costume was
neat and perfectly fitting, and there
was an air of tid ness and composure
about her that just pleased John's taste
He was listening intently to what
Miss Carlton said, but when she ceased
turned to Etle's side with some jesting
remark about an entirely foreign sub
ject, and when the girls had a chance
to teaze him about "this lady who had
no luggage for him to carry," he only
'snswered in his solemnly ludicrous
4tyle, "Time will show, time will show."
After a time the day grew hot and
the way dusty, and, tired and worn
out, the girls 'lost their liveliness and
were content to lie back amuong the
cushions and sleepily let the time glide~
away. Poor JTack, left to himself,
sought MIiss Carlton, expecting to see
another "faded tiower," as he emphat
ically declared each of his charges to
be. On the contrary, she was wide
awake, fresh as when they left home,
no trace of weariness or fatigue on the
bright face that was lifted from the
book when he came to her. She was:
one of those women that dust seems to
have no allinity for. "A tidy. neat
body," as the old folks call themi, "who
always look as if just out of a band
box." She quietly cleared away her
things from the adjoining seat and
they were soon chatting away as
though they had been friends for years,
instead of the chance acquaintances of
a few hours. Her voice was sweet and
clear, and her language was refined
and cultivated, and her manners were
so free from all affectation, that John
.ielt a composure and a relief from em
barrassment in her presence that he
sarely enjoyed when with other women.
The truth was he was in love; and the
girls, fully awake now thaos there was
something to interest them, were not

and after seeing his party' a o t the
academy John went home to his board
ing house, so abstracted that he was
unconscious. of the grreetasin . old
friends- Wnen alone' there shone be
fore him those clear hazel eyes, into
whose depths he had looked that day
for the first time, but that would ever
be remembercd. A fair face framed
in nut-brown hair, with a smooth
brow, and faintly tinted cheeks, made
a picture for his memory that
he sought to recall clearer and
more vividly ho' r by hour. "A
woman who could take care of
herself" h-:d always been a boasted
prodigy that he had challenged his
girl friends to find, and now that he
had known this quiet, demure teacher,
he was still dissatisfied. Seeing that
she was self-reiiant, lie was anxious to
teach her to lean upon him, and know
ing her ability to take her place among
the world's workers, he longed to shel
ter her in his own home and toil fot

shrank from the thought of her being
alone, and, with a gre at gush of love
and as' mpathy, remembering his *wn
solit try life, yearned to enfold her with
a tender atrection that should know no
But as the weeks lengthened into
months, and the months rolled away,
the aistan' e seemed to lengthen be
tween them, and the girls who watched
with intense interest the wooing, used
to laugh and tell him he did not know
how to "court a lady."
"Just ask her, John, if she'll have
you. That's the way. 01 you need
not pretend that you don't intend to
some day. Why, you might as well
pretend ignorance of your own exist
ence. You'd give the world if she
would say 'yes,' and yet you are not
brave enough to try."
Siiss Carlton received his attentions
as she might those of a brother, qulietly
and yet with no affected reserve. She
was 'always glad to meet him, but
her manner was~ always po ite to :ll,
and her urbanity uniform, and without
seemling to avoidl him, she never gave

the wars of this little woman who was
either iho!lv unconscious of his love,
or a flirt skilled in all of the arts o1
coquetry, and using her experience
with a master hand to keep him close
enough to charm him. and yet far
enough to chill any declaration of love.
One day the girls burst into his office
with a shout. "Some news. -ack, for
you. You might as well give up now.
You'll never get her. No use crying,
either. You will have to accept one
of us now, and so you might as well
be binding ip your wounded aflctions.

Ethie; (race and May are busy steal

-:\ow, Jack, you know we mean Miss
Carlton. She's the only woman you
ever loved, and I don't wonder you like
her. She's the only teacher that we
grls can bear, and ve all just worship
her. Why yesterday, when we were
watching for you, Grace got to talking
about vou; she's always at that. I
believe she wants yon herself, but she
won't get you. You always did be'ong
to me, didn't you, Jack? Bob your
head-yes-well, ther. she told Miss
Carlton how yon despised women who
c'ould not lcok out for themselves,
and how you scolded us for having
always such a lot of baggage. And
then we all told her about that day she
came in with us, and what you had said
about courting the first woman you saw
who carried no extra luggage. A nd I
said, 'Well, whoever gets -Jack ieed
will have an easy time, for lie's rich .

Miss Carlton's cheeks tushed-ain't

the r.bbon, 'Here is a dear, good ian,

little old-fashioned pearl ring farther
back on her finger. and sighed. Arid

Jack's tawny mustache concealed the
firmly shut lips, but the wrinkles came
in his forehead, and he looked sad for
a moment, but the girls kept him chat
tering until, satistied with promises of
an unlimited stock of candy the next
time he came, they swe;:t out, taking
all the sunshine with them, and leav
ing the old law office, he thought,
mustier and darker than eve'.
So hi. day dream had had its rude
awakening, his air castle was shattered
and in ru-ns, and his idol the beloved
of another. he had at first regretted
the idle talk of the girls, but it had at
least saved nim fron paining both the
lady and himself by the proffer of an
arfection that must have been rejected.
But so completely had he given his
whole heart to her that it did not swerve
from her though now he knew how use-'
less it was to Lope.
lie had no thought of going to he
to try to win from her L. response tc
his pleadings. She knew who to tell
that it might reach his ears as delicate
Iy as possble, and having read his love
by his actions, now wanteid him tc
k'now how fruitless were his desires.
Aad yet why had she manifested pleas
ure in his 'omp)any, for though she
was shy and timid vet she had seemed
to enjoy his society, and had alwayS
received him with at least apparent
gratitication. 1iis little gifts of flowers
and books or music had been accepted
cordially, and, of no intrinsic value, had
been carefully kept, and he had dared tc
hope it might be for his sake. But
that was all over now. He would
gradually make his visits less frequent
and in time he would fade from hex
memory and then- -well, there were the
girls; they at least would always be
glad to see him.
The winter and the spring passed
rlowly by, for they all missed Jack at
the academy as the long ev ening'
dragged by. He came occasionally,
alwaysa the same old kind fellow, and
' et they felt a change they could not
describe. He was more quiet and still,
and yet at times when with 3Miss Carl
ton ne sex"ed to forgot hic tronbles
and for awhile was the same romping,
scolding "old brother," as the girls
generally called him. But of late him
visits were less frequent and he rarely
met the little teacher, as she. too'
seemed to avoid him, but when she
was in the parlor, she took but little
part in the convers ation. The school
term wore to its close, and the girls,
chattering and wild as a lot of magpies,
surrounded .Johin and pleaded with him
to go home with them and have a
"good time." and wondered why he
glanced hastily at Miss Carlton and
answered, "Il go up home with
you, Elsie, but I cannot
sta-. I am going West in a month,
but i'd like to tell your father and
mother good-by." The slight form
bent lower over the box and the
shapely head, with its coronet of brown
braids, was a little turned, but there
was no sound of surprise. But the
trio burst forth with amazement and
grief, and protested that if "Jack went
they would go, too."
On the train and off for home again.
No scolding from John this time,
though he had enough to carry to
break down a pack-horse. He gath
ered up everything in h s reach and
stretched out his hand for th(e gr'ay
shawl, neatly strapiped, as lie remem
bered it a year before, and though the
owner attempted a protest, he made no
reply, but took it with the re-.t. May
and Eflie declared him a petrified bear,
but Grace persisted in taking his part,
assuring them that he was broken
hearted when he thought of not being
able to marry all of them, and called
on Miss (Carlton for proof.
"Miss Bessie, isn't that the reason?
He is so selhish that the thought of
anybody else getting one of us makes
him m serable." But before she could
say one word J'ack blurted out, with
his gaze on the face before him:
"That's the very rea-on."
"W~ell, Jack," retorted Effie, "if you
could have us all what would you do
about om. 'tnps, 'Von made fuss
enough last year, and now you want
four women to look after.
"But I don't. I only want one of
you, and her 'traps' won't worry me, I
promise you." And he significantly
lifted the gray shawl, and, laying it
across his knee, seemed to be intent
on smoothing the wrinkles and creases
from its folds.
The girls looked at each other and
then at Miss Carlton, and last but
longest at Jack. He was :n enigma.
The tables seemed turned, and he
alone of the party was composed, the
girls being all curiosity, and their
compan on nervous and restless.
But the conversation drifted off to
other channels, and soon they were
deep in a discussion of the merits of
their respective photographs. Jack
quietly took one of each; but looked
up in Miss Carlton's face and said:
Sle laughingly replied:
"I hardly know. It is the only one
I have, and it is promised; but
I will have some more soon. I
promised it to my uncle in
exchange for his, which I wear in my
locket. By the by, girls. would you
believe he could have changed so
much in three years? I should hardly

me, I have neter done so. But there

.ack leaned across the way and said,
with fun and earnestness strangely
blended, "May I carry your 'traps' the
rest of my li;e?" The girls tried to
look unconscious, but it was useless.
It vwas too ludicrous, and peal after
peal of hearty laughter rung out on the
air, and made a spiteful old maid, sit
ting a few seats away, say crossly, "A
lot of school-girls, who don't know how
to behave, making fun of their betters."

worn and tired out, with th author

gray shawl and wrapped it about the
little woman, who leaned close to him
and let Ii in fix her head comfortably
near his s1.-ulder. She seemed to have
lost her old, i::dependent ways, and let
Jack wait upon her as if he had never
declred -he despised a woman who
could not take care of herself." So

The girls were delighte~d, and showed
their joy by first hugging .Jack and

modest petition to the former happy
personage for more "chocolate cirear,"

hours. T hey gave .! ack up readily,
only pleading for the uncle, who had
been a skeleton at the feast for so long,
protesting that they must h :vP some

was to be taken from them, and with
groans and laments of most woeful
grief they consigned him to the care of

only wanted to get rid of him so they
might bewitch another. But Jack only
laughed and said: "1 told you I'd

"Oh, dear! I wish it would stop rain

the *indow looking out, with his face
pressed closely to the pane. Certainly
a little boy who could turn from so
cheerful a room, where the open fire
burned so brightly, so many pretty
pictures and toys to tempt his faney.,
and such a kind, rosy-cheeked nurse

him stories. to gaze obstinately upon

muddy gutters of a city street must

But Bertie had set his heart upon
going to the Park that afternoon to see
Mr. Crowley, the chimpanzee, and Miss
Murphy, the hippopotamus, sail in
Lohengrin boats, and ride the donkeys.
and nothing else would satisfy him, al
though he knew the whole country was
suffering for want of the soft falling
rain that was coming down in such a
gentle, persistent way.
"Oh, dear," he said again, "I wish it
would never rain any more."
"Bertie, dear," said his mother, "how
many times within an hour have you
said 'I wish?'"
Bertie looked up. "I don't know,
mamma; three or four times, I guess."
"Thirteen," said his mother giavely;
"and each time have you wished for
something for yourself. Now, if every
one in each house did the same, and all
their wishes were granted, in what sort
of confusion would the world be?'
Bertie thought this was a very funny
idea. He came away from the window
and stretched himself out on the tiger
skin, laughing softly to himself as he
did so. ' he more he thought about
what his mother had said the more
comical it seemed to him. "How I
should like to see a world like that:"
he thought. "I wish fairy tales would
come true, just for once, and this tiger
skin would turn into a magic carpet to
carry me anywhere I liked to go."
What? Why, had his wish been
granted'? He tried to start up, but too
late; for the skin had risen from the
floor and, with Bertie still upon it. was
gliding easily through the still closed
window an:d over the tops of all the
houses. Now they were just above
Central 'ark, and Pertie could see the
lake and the Mall and the great reser
voir far below him. Now he was borne
more swiftly through the air; he was
above the rain clouds, though he could
see the Hudson Liver below him, and
he thought to himself: "Oh, I know;
we are going where the Catskill fairies
live, and the Culprit Fay and-"
Just then the skin whirled around and
began descending so rapidly that Ber
tie's head grew dizzy, and for awhile he
did not know exactly what was passing
At length he felt a slight shock, and
opening his eyes, he looked ra':her
curiously about him. Well, well, this
this was a strauge world lie hlad
tumbled into. Such queer figures,F
houses, trees, and people Bertie had
never dreamed of.
A very polite old man came up and:
asked him whether he had come to live
in this country or whether lhe was,
merely on a visit. Biertie answered
respectfully that he was quite a.
stranger, not knowing even the name'
of the country in which he found him
self so unexpectedly, but he wouldi be
glad to know about it all that any one;
could tell him.
"You are now in the Land of Fulfill
ed Wishes," answered the old man.
"Hither come all those who on earth
waste their lives in wishing idly
for what is forbidden or withheld from
them. Some are sent here to learn~
wisdom and cure them of their folly,
and some come to stay. Here every
wish is granted as soon as uttered, but'
once made a wish can not be recalled,
and no one is permitted to leave until*
he has spent twenty-four hours with- I
out once saying 'I wish.' Perhaps,
young gentleman, you would like to:
walk about a little ? I shall be most
happy to act as your guide."
Bertie accepted this offer with many.'
many thanks, and stepping off the
tiger skin, which at once disappeared,
followed his guide.
He soon found that one of the most
uncomfortable things in this land wasF
the changeableness of the weather. It
never was the same for five minutes to
gether. One moment some wished for
summer and holiday time, and the sun
would come out hot and warm; then
perhaps someone else would want skat
ing and snowballing, and the weather
would change in a second to freezing
cold. Directly, perhaps, some child
would wish for rain, so that he need
not go to school, and down wou:.d come
a shower, possibly even a thunder
strm. For, as every wish was in-:
stantly granted, the weather changed
as often as anyone expressed a wish, so
that, if you only went out for a five
minutes' walk, you needed to carry
clothing suited to any of the four sea
In the course of his ramble Bertie
saw a number of queer people. There
was the old woman whose husband
wished a pudding on the end of her
nose, and the little girl who wished she
need never learn to sew, and who, con
sequently, had such holes and rips i
her dresses that everyone was ashamed1
to be seen with her; the little boy who
wished he need never to hlave his face
washed, and who was really dreadful
to look at; his brother, who wished all
lesson books were burnt, and was now
very muc2h ashamed, because he could
neither read, write, nor spell.
There, too. wa:s a boy, not much big
ger tha'u Bertie, who wvshed to have a
headache, so that lie need not go to
school, and who had such a headache
that his head split ill two.
Bertie saw also the man without a
country who wished that he might
never hear of the U.n'ted States again,
and was very unhappy because he never
could. Near him was a little girl who
wished for the moon and did not know
what to do with it when she got it, and
a great many children who wished to
be grown up all at once and appeared
very absurd because they looked like
grown-up people and acted like chil

eorg - WT. Melvmei Appoluted to a Good
George W. Melville, of the Engineer
orps of the United States Navy, re
ently appointed by Pres-dent Cleve
and to succeed C.'H. Loring as En
dneer-in-chief of the Navy and Chief
f the 1:ureau of Steam Engineering,
-as born in the city of New York,
f an. 10, 1841. IFe was educated partly
n the Academy of the Christian Broth
>rs and partly in the Polytechnic
chool of New York. A t the age of 17
rears he entered the East Brooklyn
ngine shops as a machinist apprentice.
Three years later, in .Tuly, 18(11, he
was appointed as assistant engineer in
the navy and was soon ordered to duty
withi the F lying Squadr-on. serving first
on the Dakota and then on the Santi
ago de Cuba, under WiP.-s. From this
vessel he was triansferred to the
Wahusett and promoted to p~ast as
bistat. He made two cruises in the
Wachusett, and was aboard of her
when she captured the Confederate
corsair Florida, in Bahia Roads. The
following year lie was employed in tor
pedo service. After the war Mr. Mel
ville served in the Chattanooga, the
Penobscot. and tne Lancaster. He was
then chosen as engineer of the Tigress,
in the Hall relief Arc-tic expedition,
after which lie made a cruise in the
Tennes-ee. Mr. Melville was se
ected as chief engineer of the Jean
nette, and his exploits in the escape of
her crew from the ice pack by way of
Siberia, have given him undying fame in
the annals of Artic exploration. It is
not disputed that, but for the iron en
urane and the unfailng courage of
Melville, no part of the crew of the
leannette would have ever seen home
gain. Melville was selected for Arc
tic service as chief engineer of the
Thetis and fleet engineer of the GJreely
relief squadron under the command cf
Commodore Schley. Mr-. Melville's
ecent duties have been altogether on
hre in positions requiring paricular
uartness as a machinist.

who are its -ictims deserve sympathy. But the great
ccess Hood's Sarsapartila has had in curing sick
cadache makes it seem almost foolish t allow the
trouble to continue. By its toning and kitvgoratilg
rtfect upon the digestive organs, I3ood's Srsaparlia
readily gives.relief when headache arises "orm Indi

the debilitated system, Hood's Sarsaparis removes
thc ca.se and hence overcomes the difficacy.

"Untold Agony from Catarrh." i
Prof. W. HArsNER, the famous mesmerist,
of Itha uIr. Y, writes: " Some ten years ago
I suffered untold agony from chronic inasal
catarrh. My family physician gave me up as
incurable, and said I must die. My case was
such a bad one, that every day towards sun
set, my voice would become so boarse I could
barely speak above a whisper. In the mornin
my coughing and clearing of my throat would
almost strangle me. By the use of Dr. Sages
Catarrh Remedy, in three months, I was a well
man, and the cure has been permanent." .4
"Constantly Hawrking and Spitting.r
THoMAS J. RrsgiNo, Esq., IM Pine Sret.
St. Louis. Mo., writes: "I was a great sufferer
from catarrh for three years. At times I could
hardly breathe, and was constantly hawking
and spitting, and for the last eight months
could not breathe through the nostrils. I
thought nothing could be one for me. Luck
ily, I was advised to try Dr. Sage's Catarrb
Remedy. and I am now a well man. I believe
it to be the only sure remedy for catarrh now
manufactured, and one has only to give it a
fair trial to experience astounding resulta and
a permanent cure."
Three Bottles Cure Catarrh.
ELI Ronarxs. Runyan P. 0., Columbia Co.,
Pa, says: "My daughter had catarrh when
she was five years old, ver badly. I saw Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy advere, adpo
cured a bottle for her, and soon saw that it
helped her; a third bottle effected a perma
nent cure. She Is now eighteen years old and
sound and hearty."
