" Thank yon, Annt Grace, bnt that
would not do at all," said Rose. " AVhen

" No," said Miss Rowan, " I know noth

you why I never doiay a day in payine

"A storv,'' said Rose, eaylv. "Ob,
that is delichtful : I ara as fond of stories
now as I was at ten years old. It just
coraes at the riprht time, too, for mamma
wauts me to fiuioh this table-cloth, and I
do cet so tired of theso conventional bor
ders, just tho same thing ovor and ovpr,
but a story will make me foreet it. Do
eo on, auntv."
Rose settled hersolf comfortably in her
low sewme-chair, and dropped her dark
lashes over her prettv blue eyes. Aunt
-rfc?jp!rfiUed a little at her eagerness, then
sienpti laintly and began her taie.
" It !is a stbrv of the davs when I was
an elderly yonne girl. living at home with
my pfirents," she said. " And the heroine
of tha story you remember those flower
paintAnes which vou have bo often ad-
mirpjd at ray home. Rose ? "
"iRemember thera? Of course I do,
Thise eTeat velvetv pansies with the dew
dnips standine upon their pnrplo petals.
Aind the sweet peas, with rines of daintv
j.lu8h over tremulous white, looking as if
a breath would blow them away. And,
oh aunty I those exquisite maple-buds and
catkins, the soft, furry white 'pussies,'
mineled with the brieht poarlot of the
bursting buds. It is like a dream of early
spring. But how do they come into yonr
story, aunty ? " asked Rose, lifting wide
eyes of mterest to her aunt's tace.
"Only because the palnter of those
pictures is the heroine of it," said Aunt
Grace. " Cara Ilastines was her name.
She was much younger than I, an orphan,
fighting her way single-handed with the
world. PrettyY Well, rather prettv, not
very. She had a slight, gracefnl figure,
dark, wiatfnl eyes set in a small, pale
face, flexible, tremulous lips, and a profu-
Bion oi soit, dark, wavy hair, which
framed her broad forehead like a cloud.
"I met ner hrst at tne studio oi a

ference in our ages, we took a mutual

A broad lounge served for her bed at
night, and one corner of the room was
cnrtained off to conceal her toilette ap-
paratus. Her cooKing, sucn as it was
was accompliahed npon a small kerosene
stove, wnicn, when not it use, she kept iu
her closet. A poor little place, as I said,
but Cara was very happy in it. She
loved her work, and she had one of those
bright, happy dispositiona which make
their own sunshine. She often talked to
me of her pupils, bnt the one of whom
she spoke oftonest was Mand X. I knew
tho namo well, for the father of this Maud
was one of tbe most promtnent clerey'
men in the city where wo both lived.
Everv one reapected him, irrespectivo of

queut preacher and a profonnd scholar, of
fervid piety and blameless life ; he was
also a philanthropiat, a reformer, promi-
nent in the tomperance cauae, m the sooi
ety for the suppression of vice, in every.
thing that was good and noble. Cara
often spoke of him with enthusiasm

" 1 What is the matter with you, Cara,'
I often asked anxioualy, but she only
smiled and protested that nothing ailed

" There was a ahort, sharp knook at
tho studio door and a letter fell throueh
the slit. upon the floor. Cara sprane to
pick it up, glanced at the address, which
l saw was in a maaculine hand, and k
faint flush tinped her palo cheeks. I
turned away to look at a pictnrp. whil
she toro open the cnvelope. When I
turned back tho flush hnd faded, and left
her paler than before, her lips were qniv
ering a little, and her eyes had a dim,
hopelpss look, which moved me aorely.
" ' Uara. you are not well, I cried.
' Dear child, vou must corae with me.

of heMiand. ' No, no,' she said, ' I can
not come. Do not make it harder for me
to refuse by urging me. I must stay here

" ller tone was so decided that I lelt it
wonld be useleas to urgo her further. and
sadlv and reluetantly I left her. That
night came the news of tho severe illness
of your mother, my only siater, accom
panied wifh an entreaty that I wonld go
to her. Of courae I went by the hrst train
hext morninrr, loavine onlv a noto for
Cara, to explain my pudden departure,
" It was the hrst of AneuRt when I had
left tbe oity, but September hadcomo and
well-nigh gono before your mother's
health was Bufficiently re-established to

" 'I saw your friend Cara Ilastines tO'

ered around the table for the hrat meal
after my return. ' I am afraid the poor

" 1 need not say tnat tne next morning
found me on my way to Cara's studio. It
was all true. I knew it as soon as I
looked in her face. She threw herself
into my arms with a little cry of delight,
which chaneed into a spasm ot coughing,
and I felt the slight form paat and quiver
in mv arms.
"'Cara! dear child, what have you
been doing to yourself,' I cried in dismay.
" Cara smiled her own bright, cheerlul

left town rather suddenly in June, and I
did not know whero they had gone. I

The Watchman of Julv 11. eavo a brief
nccount of the disabling of tho steamship
Anrania by the breakine of a crank-shaft,
off Sandv Hook, Sunday afternoon, July
1. Iho New York Ht.rald eraphioally de-
acribes the disaater and tbeheroism of tho
engineer. Tho enormous power de-
manded for tho propulsion of a creat ves
sel like the Aurania received a terrifio il
lustration by this incident. " It was
while the pasaengerB were watching tha
low lineof the Long Island coast, just ap-
peanng m tho dim distance, " says the
llerald, " that the crank-shaft attached to
tho middle piston, an enormous bar of
solid Bteel, ten inches in diameter, sud
denly snappfid in twain. The suddenly
liberated piston rod ahot up through the
top of the confining cylinder, tearing the
thick Bteel plates all to pieces, and with
one tremendous burst and a report like
that of heavy pieces of ordnance, a vast
volumo of Bteam, carryine with it frag
ments of iron, burst through tho sky-light
and escaped heavenward. JLbe bavoc
wrought in the engine room was terrible.
Not a cylinder escaped laceration. Iron
braces were bont and torn, heavy beams
were perforated, glass an inch thick' from
the sKy-lieht-was blown into tho air and
rained down upon tho deck in adangerous
shower. A passenger was sittine near the
stern and was aliehtlvcutbviallinggiass,
A lady paasanger Mrs. K. v . bturdevant
waa stanrime near the sky-lieht. bhe
was knocked down by the force of tho ex
plosion and her wrist was badly sprained.
For a moment or two there was almost a
panio on board, those on deck being
frightened by the noise of the explosion,
the rush of escapint; steam and tbe sound
of some terrible pounding, which was go
ine on m the lowest deptbs ot the engine
room. They retreated in some disorder
toward the bows. Other passeneers, who
were below, rushed on deck to see what
the matter was. But it was not on deck
nor yet ih the upper part of the engine
room that the real point of daneer lay.
Down three ereasy pairs of ladders, in the
deptbs of the ship's bull, far below the
cylinders, in the dark hole where stokers
grow faint from excessive heat and where
the grimy engineer on duty boids his post
ot responsibility, there waa enacted
Bcene which rarely has an equal. The
lower portion of tho broken crank-shaft, a
mass of steel weigbing many tons, was, ot
courae, fastened to the main Bhaft of the
ship, and as this continued to revolve
from the workine of the other pistons, an
immense arm of steel went flying about
like a hnge ilail. Tbe enect was awiui
Iron and steel were knocked to spnnters,
A supportine column of wrought iron a
foot in thickness was broken in two, and
one picce weiehing a ton was bitten out
bo to speak. Wherever the flail struck
deatruction followed. The air, already
choked with pcaldine steam, was filled
wlth sparks of fira oaused by the blows of
ateel on steel and iron. xne piace was ln-
fernal. Nothine but prompt action could
save the sheathing of the vessel from be
ing pounded through. The engine must
be stopped. And yet the little steel brake
which controlled the wnoie tremenoous
mechanism was aituated only about two
feet from tho arm of the thrasber and
rigbt in the midat of the scalding steam
and tho blistenng sparks. Andrew um
bert. the second eneineer, promoted from
the Bothnia, was on duty in the engine
room. He is a tall, brawny bcotchman ot
Bome three or fo'ur and thirty. When the
crank-shaft broke and the engine room
was turned into pandemonium, Mr. Lam-
bert was standing near one ot tho stoke
rooms, some twenty or tniriy ieeo irom
the brake. ne saw and felt the dense
mass of steam and noted the lightning of
the flying sparks. He knew the engine
must be stopped. To see tho controlling
brake was an lmpossionity, out ne Know
that instinct would take him to it, and,
dropping down on his hands and knees,
ho crawled up to it and turned off the
Bteam. The shaf t had made about twenty
revolutions bofore he was able to get the
engine under control. He was badly
scalded about the face and hands, but oth
erwiae uninjured. But he had risked his
life to savo the ehip."
oin or law, for I fanov that no womon
oan becoino usoful in either of tboso pro
fossions without becoming to a cortain
degreo uusoxed ; but I should be the last
person in tha world to rofuso to recognize
tho fact that a women can bo of great as
sistanco in nearly all olassea of buBiness,
and can succesafully hold tho majorlty of
rosponslble commerioial positions now
held by mon. In tho carpot trado we
havo several ladies who own their own
stores, others who buy for their husbands'
stores, and othera still who always accom
pany their husbands on their buslness
trips to tho city."
" But do you not thlnk that womon as
a rulo aro likely to be moro easily influ
enced than men? "
" No, sir, not in buainess, and perhaps
not out of it. A buslness woman is a far
moro difQcult person to deal with than a
business man. Onco let her undoratand,
or even fancy she understands tho busl
ness and you may bo perfectly certain
that sho will never bo imposed upon. Ono
of our lady oustomers is also a designer,
and she recently brought us one of the
prettiest carpot dosigns that I have ever
seen, and asked us to mako it up for her.
AVe were only too glad to do it, and tho
deslgn is now ono of tho best selling
' bodies ' we havo in stock. I know one
lady whoso husband owns a laree curtain,
upholstery and carpet business, in fact a
general house-furnishing store, and that
lady knows more about the actual details
of the business than her huabaud, aud
yet he's no fool ; on the contrary, ho may
be classed as a eoou business man.
Just at this moment a eentoellv dressed
lady entered the Btore. Sho was about
thirty years of age, good looking, and
possesaed that quiet, collected look that
denotes the real lady. In a thoroughly
business-like manner she examined the
stock, selected her eoods and selected
them with the beat of iudement, and,
after exchaneine a few words with the
head of the firm, walked out of the place
aa lt ahe was in the babit of buying
thousand rolls a day.
"That's one of our lady buyers," ra-
marsed the manutacturer, " and you can
form an idea'of the eeneral manner of
the ladies who have enerey enough to
take a part in conducting their husbands'
ousiness. JUr. is a proaperoua re-
tailer, a eood risk in every sense of the
word, but while be attends to the eeneral

A Ilattlo Flag Returned.
The sienificant event of the day in New
York was the return of tho colora of the
one hundred and fif ty-fifth reeiment by
tbe cadets of the Viretnia military insu
tute, where tho flag was deposited at the
oloso of the war. These colors were lost
in the fieht of Cold Harbor, where the
brave Colonel MacMahon of the one hun
dred and fifty-fiftb, a young man only
twenty-aix yeara of age, had planted them
on an earthwork, in advance of all hia
mon, and maintained them in the face
of the enemy's iire until he was riddled
witb bullets. Aa be said himselt, witb his
dyine breath, he was ahot all to pieces
An olficer, also wounded near by, crawled
over and offered the dying colonel some
whiskey. ile was then lyme witb his
hands clasped over his breast, and his
lips movine as it in prayer. He only re-
sponded to the officor, " No, no, I thank
you. Let me die in peace." Three of the
JHacAlahon brothers distmguished them
selves in the war. The firat to fall was
the colonel of the one hundred and fif ty
fifth, and his brother, the hero of Cold
Harbor, took hla place. The surviving
brother, General MacMahon, waa offered
the position of colonel; but he de
clined and left tho command to the
lieutenant-colonel, who, when captured,
begged the confederates to savo young
MacMahon. But it was then too late.
The body of the colonel lay for three days
on the spot where he fell, so terrible was
the fire of tho combatants at that point.
He was finally buriod at midnight. The
chaplain who performed the service and
hundreds of the men were in tears. By
an order of Meade, no regiment which
had lost ita colora was permitted to carry
colors again until it had won the right by
gallant conduct. In the case of the One
Hundred and Fifty-fiftb, General Han
cock most earnestly proteated, aaying, " I
would be content to loso all the colors of
my command in tho same way." An ap-
peal was taken to General Grant in the
war department, and the colors were re-
stored. Tbia is tbe patbetic, yet proud ato-
ry of the captured flag. It waa delivered on
the Fourth in the eovernor'a room at the
city hall. Col. Bafi of tho eleventh Vir-
einia cavalry, who captured tbe Uae, hand
ed it to Mayor Edson with the remark tbat
vireinia acted now tn tbe sincere beiiei
that her sons were brothera of tho oiti
zens of New York. He referred to the
speech of Fresident Arthur, who, when
receiving the cadets earlier in the day at
the tiutx Avenue hotel, bad said, "1
wiah here to express my hope and confi
dence that bencefortb, wheuever the flag
of a New York regiment shall be assailed,
if the gallant soldiers of Virginia are by,
they will be prompt and eaeer to defend
it." Col. Ball fuily endoraod the senti
ment. Christian Ileguter.
" Do vou ever have any lady buyers
visit you ?" recently asked a representa
tive of the Carpet Tradc and Itevicw, of a
prominent carpet manutacturer.
" Xes, sir, and wnat s more ineae jaay
buyers are among the Bharpeat purohasers
we have to deal with. They pay the
strictest attention to every detail of the
businetB, select their goods wlth greater
care, and have much better taste than tha
averago male buyer. Now it is an un
doubted faot that American wives are not
consulted enough upon many subjeota re-
lating to their busbands1 business, wnere
thoir advice would be of benefit to all con
cerned. In France, it is alinoat the rule
to aee the wife of a manufactureror store
keeper, not only taking au interest in the
business, and having a desk in tbe ofQce,
bnt ia many cases actually managing the
businoss. Can a man have a more trust
worthy cashier or head book-keeper than
his own wife ? No, air. If our business
men would onlv admit their wives and
other femalo relativea into thoir ofilces,
we should hear much less frequently of
defaultlng cashiers and defaultlng book
keepers. A man can have no better ad
viser than his own wife, and very few
know what excellent 'business men'
women make, if they are carof ully trained.
Some of the largeat buaineases in France,
emploving many hundreds of persons, are
entirely managed by women. I am no
woman'a righta advocate, indeed, I am
distinctly opposed to a woman'a going out
of her own sphere and dabbling in raedi.
A Canadian writes home to the To
ronto Mail tbat he saw the Prince and
Princess of Wales at Hurlingham the
other day. " The Prince," he says, "struck
me as boine an exceedineiy bandsomo
man, slightly bald, but with a splendid
