As she ran down Mme. Vanrer's broad
stone steps, a hat was lifted by some one
who stood by an open coups in front. It
was Jack Snelling, who shot a glance of
approval afta her from his dark eyes as
e passed t.p the steps with his sister.
"'New t all Ernest." thought Bab, as
he laid aeide her wraps and prepared to
gret her brother's return with a dinner
of his espeoial viands, that should make
him as wax in her hands.
The dinner hour came, and Barbara,
fresh as a roas in her soft wool gown, was

So the nit day Ernemt's bag was pecked

by th~drstmail to Philadelphia.
Day after day went by and no letter
came in reply. No word from Ernest of

her, and then the great storm shut down

danced crazily before her eyes as she sani!
in a dazed little heap on the floor. What
would Ernest say? She was but 17.
and It never occurred to her unbusi
nesslike ideas that Mme. Vaurler was
taking advantage of her, and that she
could send the bonnet bhack. Aunt Valerie
had money, but Ernest had forbidden her
ever to borrow a penny of Aunt Valerie on
pain of his deepest disapproval. He was
so proud and honest, that manly brother,
and she, "little selfish thing." had dared
to call him "mean." "He was worth a
hundred Jack Snellings, so there."
That very evening Jack called with his
sister, who was very kind and cordial in
her gentle, reserved way, and the invita.
tions for Easter day were resumed with
some well bred insistence, upon learning
that her brother was absent and Aunt
Valerie was to join them. But there was
good "stuff" in Bab's sturdy little body
after all, and oven while her eyes took in
the quiet elegance of Miss Mildred Snell
ing's attire, she was coming to a Spartan
resolution. She would go, but she would
not wear an unpaid for bo::nct. Some
how, she felt better after that, and when
a telegram arrived before Easter saying
that Ernest would return the next Mon.
day, she was quite ready with a smiling
welcome to greet the unexpected an
nouncement of-Mr. Snelling Something
Jack had to say kept him in such a fer
ment that he could not wait; so he had
called to "put it to the test and win or
lose." But somehow matters did not pro
grass just as Jack had anticipated. For
when he had told her in his most manly
way how dear she was, and all
that he wanted her to promise, Bab
simply buried her blue eyes in two
dimpled little hands and sobbed. "You
wouldn't! Oh, you wouldn't, if you knew
what, what a ho-orrid little wretch I aml"
And then the Ice onee broken for the rev
elation, she told Jack all the miserable
tale. When she got through she waited
-not a word came from Jack. "Oh, my,
he was too disgusted with her to speak!"
She "knew he would be," and began to
sob afresh. This was too much, and Jack
drew away the hot hands and wet hand
kerchief to show her his own eyes, danc
ing with suppressed laughter. "Didn't
you get any mail to-night?" he said at last.
"No-yea-not-that is, I got a-Oh, I
never looked at it! Some one came in,"
she stammered wonderingly. "Well, go
and get it, please, nowl" said Jack, re
leasing her, to run out and return with an
envelope, which she tore hastily open
"Mine. Vaurer's bill-reoeipted!" she
gasped. "What does it meanT" "Read,
and you will see," said Jack. "'"Mme

keeper has mixed the bills and sent them
to the wrong brothers, that is all. My
sister's bill is probably awaiting your
brother's return at his office. Suppose
you let the matter go, as it will be, Ihope,
but a short time till I may pay all your
bills unquestioned. That is for you to
It was answered satisfactorily, no doubt.
for a very rosy little Bab gathered herself
resolutely together a half hour later and
insisted upon taking the bill into the
library, where it should meet her brother's
eye the first thing upon his return. A lit
tle later she stood in her clinging, pale
blue dress, leaning against the deep maroon
hangings of the archway. Her dark
lashes, in startling contrast with her yel
low hair, almost rested on her cheeks, a
trifle pale now, as she realized the serious
and sacred sweetness of the new tie.
"It is kind of you, Jack, to wish to
shield me from mortfication at my own
folly, but I cannot wear it until Ernest
has forgiven me, and he is the only one
yet" (with a shy little emphasis) "who
has a right to buy my bonnetsl I will not
wear it to-morrow."
"Oh. yes, you will, little one," said a
roles behind the red draperies, as they
swung apart and Ernest Nixon caught the
startled girl in his arms as he entered the
room. "It was rather mean to listen.
Jack, but finding a bill for my sister's
bonnet, with your signature, on my table,
upon my premature arrival to-night, I
naturally looked up a prompt solution of
the situation. It's all right, and if you
look in before you leave I'll give you a
check for your autograph."
"You may as well hand me my sister's
bill, which ye will find among your pa
pers somewhme, at the same time." said
And the next day two new bonnets met
upon the heads of their fair owners, with
such damage to the heart of Ernest Nixon
that when he told Jack and Bab, later, of
his successful business venture in Phila
delphia, he also added that before next
Easter he proposed that they should ex
change their sisters' bodlet bills perma
nently, a proposition which was promptly

There is always pleasure in accumu.
lated power, but few pause to consider
that it is only to be had through vigorous
exertion. In one respect this sort of
recompense is unique, for it may come
not only with success, but with much
that is called failure. A man may find
his hopes disappointing him one by one;
he loses a position he supposed to be se
cure, or his business does not succeed;
perhaps his work, too, appears ineffect
ual, and his efforts seem lost. Yet even
in all this crushing adversity, although
ha has failed in all he has tried to do, he
may have succeeded in doing something
else of which he had not thought, but
which may be more important and endur
ing that that which he attempted to ac.
complish. If he has really tried hard and
honestly he has gained wisdom and power
and experience and caution, which will
stand him in good stead in future exer
tions. This Is a consolation seldom of

ALL ABOUT ARLINGTON.
THE PEACEFUL PLACE WHERE GEN.
SHERIDAN NOW LIES.
It Was Once the Estate of the Celebrated
Lee Family, of Virginia, Is Now a Sol
dlers' Cemetery and Is Here Described
Arlington is indeed an honored and
historic name, both in 'England and
America; but in the former it is best
known as the title of a family, and in the
latter as the name of an estate. The
glories of the English house of Arlington
were somewhat sullied by that represen
tative of it who served Charles II a
little too faithfully; nevertheless, when
the cavalIers of Virginia began to push
up the Potomac, their principal official
MANSION AT ARLINGTON.
honored his vast estate by giving it the
name of Arlington. A little later the
title was restricted to that part of the
estate bordering on the Potomac, and
that estate, not quite a century and a
half ago, became the property of the
great Custis family. Thus through Cus
tis, Washington, Custis again, and finally
Lee, the estate has become noted in
American annals, and is now made a
Mecca of patriotism as the last resting
place of Sheridan and nearly 16,000 other
soldiers of the Union.
When George Washington married Mrs.
Martha Custis, widow, her only son was
the prospective owner of this fine estate
of 1.000 acres; but he did little to im
prove it. His son, John Parke Custis,
entered the patriot army as an aide to
Washington, rendered valuable services
at the siege of Yorktown, was stricken
down with the malarial fever of the local
ity, and died soon after the surrender.
He left four children, of whom Washing
ta adopted the two youngest; and of
these George Washington Parke Custis
succeeded to the ownership of Arlington.
He was a man of peculiar and somewhat
classical tastes, and designed a mansion
in imitation of the old temple at Pastum,
near Naples. The original plan was nec
essarily modified to fit the needs of a
modern residence, and the result is the
imposing Arlington house, which stands
on a hill 200 feet above the Potomac
river, some four miles from the Capitol
building and one mile from Georgetown
across the Aqueduct bridge.
The center building, 60 feet, and two
wings of 40 feet each, give a frontage of
140 feet; and from this projects a portico
60 feet long and 25 feet deep. South of
the building are garden, conservatory,
kitchen, old "slave quarters" and stable;
toward river and city the view is, of
course, unobstructed. To this building
George Washington Parke Custis re
moved in 1802 from Mt. Vernon, where
he had lived, after graduating at Prince
ton college, till the death of Mrs. Wash.
ington. He died there Oct. 10, 1857, the last
of Washington's family, aged 74. His life
was largely devoted to art and literature;
his "Recollections of Washington" at one
time attracted much attention, and at the
beginning of the late war Arlington
House contained several fine paintings
done by hini. It also contained many
stemorials of Washington and other
solonial revolutionary heroes, and an in
vitation to Arlington House was esteemed
an honor by the most eminent statesmen
Early in life he married Miss Mary Lee
Fitzhugh, and their daughter married th'
son of "Light Horse Harry" Lee, then n
lieutenant of engineers, but later known
to all the world as Gen. Robert E. Lee.
The story of the "confiscation" of Arling
ton need not be repeated. It involves
points of constitutional law as yet unset
tied; but the final result appears to be
that the title of the government is per.
fected. The sale under the confiscation
act took place in 1868; in 1864 the govern
ment took possession; soon after
the burial of soldiers began there,
and in 1807 the National cemetery
was formally established. On the
80th of May, 1770, occurred the great t

successive administrations of Bishops
McGill, Gibbons and Kean. By the last

NOMINATED CHIEF OF ENGINEERS.
Thomas Lincoln Casey, Who Comes of
Col. Thomas Lincoln Casey, whose name
has been sent to the senate by President
Cleveland for confirmation as brigadier
general of volunteers and chief of engi
neers, comes of an old army family. His
father was Gen. Silas Casey, of the army,
and the son was born at Madison bar
Harbor, N ew
York, in 1838. He
may, therefore, be
said to have been
literally born in
the service. In
1852 he was grade
uated first in his
class at the Uni
ted States Mili
tary academy and
assigned to the
corps of engi
neers. From 1854
to 1859 he served THOMAS L. CASEY
as assistant pro
fessor of practical, civil and military en
gineering at the academy.
When the war broke out in 1861 Casey
was in the west, and was not ordered
to the east until the engineer corps
was so depleted of officers that
no more were allowed to accept
positions in the volunteers. This kept
him at engineer duty during the whole
war. He was on special duty at the at
tack on Fort Fisher in 1864, and for serv
ices on that occasion was brevetted, and
rec/ved the brevet of colonel and lieuten
ant colonel for faithful service during the
civil war. For ten years, from 1807 to
1877, he was in charge of the division of
fortiilcations in the engineer department
at \Vashington, and was then placed in
charge of public buildings. Under his
supervision several important structures
were reared. In 1868 he was sent to Eu
rope to examine the torpedo system of
foreign nations. Ten years later he
undertook the completion of the Wash
ington monument, which he effected in
1884. Two years ago he was made presi
dent of the board of engineers at New
A Noted Hymn Writer Dead.
Rev. George Duffield, the well known
writer of hymns, who died recently in
Bloomfield, I. J.,was born in 1818. He was
graduated from Yale college in 1837, being
a classmate of Senator William M. Evarts,
Edwards Pierrepont, Samuel J. Tilden
and the late Chief Justice Waite. Mr.
Duffield studied for three years in the
Union Theological seminary of New York,
and entered the ministry of the Presby
'erjan church. He presided over churches
in Brooklyn, N.
P a. ; Galesburg,
Ills., and several
places in Michi
gan. He married
in 1840, and his
wife died thirty
years later in
Michigan, and at
the time of her
death he retired
from the ministry
and went to DeI
troit. Last fall
he went to Bloomfield, N. J., to live with
the widow of his son.
Mr. Dufneld was the author of a num
ber of hymns, fugitive poems and several
volumes on religious topics. He is best
known, however, as the author of the
hymn, "Stand Up for Jesus." which for
many years has been sung at religious
gatlherings, It has not only been used all
over America, but translated into French
