She had quarroled -with Raymond and re
turned the beautiful ring he had given her
when she promised to marry him.
That -was sir weeks ago and now at last
Beatrice had left the noisy city with its con
stant sad reminders of those short happy
months and was visiting in the country at the
home of Mrs. Meredith, the lifetime friend of
Beatrice Browning's mother.
Mrs. Browning died when Beatrice was a
little girl three years of age and now in her
twrntietfa year, for tho first time in her hfo,
B atnee had come to visit her mothor's girl
The country was all so now and beautiful to
Beatrice: she was beginning to Jeol that here
among those new scenes and acquaintances
she would in time learn to. if not forget, at
least look bacfc on the past without that feel
ing of sharp pain which she had known so
well of late.
On this particular morning in the latter part
of September, when Beatrice bad been in the
country about a week, we find her half-sitting.
La! f-roelining in a hammock, one end of which
is fastened to a strong post or tho side ve
randa and the other to a sturdy oak, whioh
spread its huge branches above tho hammock
ana its fair occupant in tho most sheltering

An oblong photo holder mado of an ordi

and leaves and green taffeta ribbon bows, the
loop being of green silk cord.
Melon-shaped s-ections of chamois skin over
lapped and feather-stitched together form an
attractive tobacco pouch. This should be
lined with brown taffeta silk, finished in a
deep frill at the top, this frill being formed by
the silk cord drawing-string. "Thy clouds

line to work in silk upon this pouch.

hood ornamented with ticy bells and tied be

Then cover a diamond-shappd cardboard
foundation with silk of a prettv contrasting
shade, sew flatly beneath it several leaves of
chamois, and fasten under tho doll's head.
This looks very dainty on a light-wood writing-desk.

Sow the lower edges of these securely to the
sweet mother of yours. As I came out of the
house I almost fancied Harriet was out hero
in the hammock.
"You looked more like her than over before,
with that sweot, softened expression on your
face. But to tell you tho truth, dear, I wa.s
glad when it disappeared. It frightened me.
It was the same angelic expression that was
habitual with your mother. You know, she
was only a few years older than you are now
when she left you a little motherless girl, and
if there is any truth In tho saying "tho good
die young" well, now, you know why I was
relieved when I saw that unusual expression
pas away, and stroking the soft, wavy hair
affectionately, she added:
"But, my dear Beatrice, don't permit your
self to grow morbid over anything I have
said. Really, I think you have a long life be
fore you yet. And, dear me, how long I am
keepiDg you from your reading! I must go
and tell William about the weeds in that
flower bod." As sho walked away Beatrice
mechanically turned tho leaves' of her book,
"How I lovo to listen to her," she mused.
"What fun danced in her eyes as sho pre
tended to feel so contrite at keeping me from
rending' Sho knew I hadn't read a word;
that I was just killing time in day dreams,
and how easy it is to do that hero! No calls
to make, no shopping, no dressmakers to dis
tress ne; nothing to do but fill ono's lungs
ivith : ure, fresh air and feel at peace with
all the world. I've no doubt that the busy
people hero wonder how I can be so idle, but
perhaps " at this point in her reflections
her eyes fell on the lines:
"Tears, Idle tears, I know what they mean.
Tears from the dopth of some divine despair
Itise In tee heart and gather to tho eyes
In looking on the happy autumn fields
And thinking of tho days that aro no more.
"Bear as remembered kisses after death
And sweet as those by hopelcs3 fancy feigned
On lips that are for others, doop as love,
Deep as first love, and wi.d with all rogrot;
O. death m life, the days that aro no more "

Barnard College proudly boasts that it
offers precisely tho samo advantages to its
women students that Columbia does to its
men. With all duo respect for the veracity
of New York city's woman's college, Bar
nard's girls mav, as undcr-graduates, pursue
exactly tho samo courses of study as may
Columbia's men, but there the thing ends.
Except in certain specified studies namely,
philosophy and psychology such a thing as
a post-graduate course is made impossible.
The studies most interesting, and very often
of -most value, viz., history, literature, and
pure mathematics, aro closed to the Barnard
girl after she receives her diploma, whereas
the Columbia lad can go post-graduating for
ever if he wants to, both in these and any
other studies. Especial point Is made of all
this because there aro probably hundreds of
young women now in or near Now York city
who are, metaphorically speaking, down oa
their knees before the Bernard faculty
entreating to havo all post-graduate courses
thrown open them. These young women are
not, moreover, graduates of Barnard alone.
Many of tbom have taken high honors at
other universities, but now being in the me
tropolis, at work teaching, writing, etc., they
are hungry to avail themselves of privileges
that it would seem should of right be theirs.
Wellesley is very meanly nick-named "that
meaning it had for her now! Now. when
sho was trying so hard not to think of "the
days that are no more." And sho had suc
ceeded well this morning. Why, sho had
hardly given Raymond a thought until those
lines of Tennyson had brought back every
thing. Raymond Otis, the only man she had
over loved,"and she felt suro he loved her
still, yet they were more surely parted than
if they had ever met. And then for tho first
time since she had given him up she won
dered if, after all, tho whole thing had been a
Could sho have been too proud and unfor
giving and he only thoughtless and impetu
ous? All was over between them and he would
never know now much sho cared. Suddenly
tho most harsh and disagreeable sound
imaginable broke out on the air. Beatrice
sprung to her feet and with her palms tightly
pressed against her ears ran quickly toward
Mrs. Meredith, who was picking alarge bunch
of fragrant lilacs for the table.
"What was it?" she cried. Please do tell
me what that awful sound was."
For a moment Mrs. Meredith was at a los3
to know tho cause of her distress until again
that awful sound broke forth. Tho look of
frightened appeal on the girl's face was too
much for Mrs. Meredith's sense of humor.
Sho burst out into along and hearty laugh,
after which she explained:
"Why, didn't you know what that nolso
was, my dear? It was only Jack Rabbit, the
little donkey, probably calling to John to let
him out of tho stable. Pardon mo for laugh
ing, but you did look so funnv." And sho
enjoyed another good laugh, in which Bea
trice joined hor this time, and teased her
about keeping such a dreadful beast about
, "Of all tho incongruous, inharmonious
sounds I over heard! I began to realize, as you
have so often told mo, that tho country, and
even nature, has its unromantlc sido. It
brought me quickly back to earth when I haa
been soaring off in dreamland for so long."
Just then Mr. Meredith and Harry tamo up
the gravel walk, and they all went in to
dish-washing establishment" by pome of the
other collegea. It is nevertheless true that
tho round of domestic duties forms a formid
able part of the institution's curriculum. The
girls not only have to care for their own
rooms, but squads of them take turns in wait
ing on table, or sweeping, nnd in washing
and wiping dishes.
"I could stand it all but the dish-washing,'
onceconfessed a o no-time Wellesloy girl, "and
that I loathed, hated and despised. You
know tho dishes are all put in a sort of in
clined rack and aro sent sliding toward you.
Well, when It came round my turn at dish
washing, I'll toll you what I did. Every dish
that I washed last I smashed, and purposely,
too. Oh, you needn't looked shocked! It
wasn't altogether deviltry on my part. I
usod to get desperately nervous with mop-
fiing so many hundred of platters andsmash
ug tho last one eaoh time was the only thing
that seemed to relieve my feelings. No, I
don't approve the introduction of domes
ticity into tho women's college."

Of course, Mrs. Meredith amused them all
during the meal in tolling how Beatrice had
been rudelv awakened from ono of hor day
dreams by the donkey's braying.
Beatrice changed the subject by saying she
would like to go for a drive during the after
noon. "I think I should like to go alone,
Mr. Meredith. .1 have been with Harry two
or three times, and don't think I should get
lost if I went by myself to-day. Haven't you
something you could trust me to drive? I
won't mind how old or pokey ho is."
"Oh, yes; I think wo can get you some
thing that won't runaway whh you. About
what time did you want to go? Four o'clock?
All right. Harry, don't forgot Miss Brown
ing wishes to go for a drive at 4 o'clock."
"Yes, father, I'll be ready for her," the boy
answered. Something in the tone caused his
mother to look sharply at him. Sho thought
sho saw a mischievous light in the blue eyes,
but it was gone before she could tell (if, in
deed, it had been there at all). Beatrice went
upstairs to write some letters, and after a
short, refreshing nap, came down at 4 o'clock
for her drive. As she walked slowly up and
down the veranda watching for Harry, Mrs.
Meredith thought sho had never seen so pretty
a picture. Beatrice was drawing on somo
long, black suede gloves. Sho wore a largo
black hat trimmed with ostriih tips. Her
gown, of some soft, thin stuff, was black, too,
which made her clear complexion look even
whiter than usual by 'contrast. Her wavy
hair, coiled in a Psycho knot, shone like gold
in the sunlight.
Mrs. Meredith camo up and, fastening
some largo rose geraniums in Beatrice's hat,
"There! Now you aro perfect. You wero
all black and white (except that delicate pink
in your cheeks) and just needed that touch of
"Hero I am, Misss Browning!" cried a
youthful voice. "Hope I haven't kept you
And looking up tho ladies beheld Harry, his
young face wreathed in smiles and red from
his efforts to look sober and unconscious. Ho
was seated in a little yellow cart, to which
of apple, currant or lemon jelly and a littlo
sugar. Cook about half an hour, or until tho
tapioca is clear. Put it in a mold, and when
perfectly cold, turn it out. Serve with
whipped cream or soft custard.
Soak three largo spoonfuls of tapioca in ono
quart of wator for soveral hours. Boil ono
quart of milk and stir in the soaked tapioca;

BAIW'S FALL OPENING.
His Store Has Been Enlarged and His
Stock Richer Than Ever.
The great emporium of Charles Baum at
416 Seventh street northwest will have its fall
opening to-day. Mr. Baum decided to go
out of business some time ago and made
heavy inroads on his stock in the process of
selling out. But circumstances ordered
otherwise, and to-day the store will open on
a larger scale than ever. It will have more
room, a larger and better stock than ever,
and its opening will mark a new era in its
Though the entranceto the store is not very
wide, there is lots of room within. Old pa
trons will find many changes, too, but all for
tho better. A new Eighth street annox, with
more than 2,400 feet of floor space, has been
added, and is devoted exclusively to milli
nery. It is as light and airy as it is commodi
ous. The entire D street annex on the first
floor is occupied by tho upholstery depart
ment. Cotton underwear, corsets, and in
fants' wear havo all been moved down stairs.
Tho book department is in tho basement of
the main store on Sovonth street. It is very
large, holds numberless books and all the lat
est periodicals, and will bo found very attract
ive to readers of all classes.
The ribbon department occupies the entire
main store, which arrangement is a vast im
provement over the old. Dress goods occupy
the old Eighth street annex, and the cloak
department tokes up the wntiro seeond floor.
The third floor is taken up with trunks and
valises, which the Arm will carry all tho year
round instead of summer only as heretofore.
Mr. Baum, after twenty-five years in busi
ness, bos built up an enviablo trade, and his
old friends will And increased pleasure and
proflt in patronizing him now. His store has
been remodeled and greatly enlarged, and he
carries this j ear the largest and finest stock
of new goods be has over placed on his
shelves. Theso, with the determination to
please his trade, will make the emporium
more popular than ever.
CHORAL SOCIETY OPENING.
Bright Prospects for the Twelfth Year of
n Popular Organization.
An unusually brilliant season is promised
by tho Choral Soeioty, and the opening of its
twelfth year will bo had under the most en
couraging auspices. Tho society has had a
successful career, of which its steady growth
is ample evidence, and Indicative, as well, of
the increasing development of musical culture
at the National Capitol. Throughout its
career It has uniformly commended itself to
tho friendly encouragement of a music-loving
public, and its merits have been substantially
Organized and maintained by its members
for music's sake alone, tho society has no sal
aried list, the director and accompanist alone
receiving compensation for their services, and
that merely nominal.
Madamo Lillian Blauvelt. soprano; Miss
Florence Stldham. contralto; Mr. Anton
Schott, tenor, and Mr. Emil Fischer, bass, are
among the soloists who will appear in tho in
itial performance this season, when the mag
nificent oratorio of St. Paul will be presented.
It is one object of the society to establish a
permanent home for musical societies in this
city, nnd it is believed that ultimatoly suffi
cient interest will bo awakened to justify the
purchase of a site and the erection of a build
ing. In this commendable enterprise the so
ciety deserves tho aid of every loyer of tho art
King Alexander's Junket.
Budapesth, Oct. 14. King Alexander, of
Servia, arrived here to-day and proceeded at
onco to the royal castle, whero he was re
ceived -by Emperor Francis Joseph, who
presented to him Dr. Wekerlo, Hungarian
prime minister; Count Kalnoky, the imperial
minister of foreign affairs, and other promi
nent personages. To-night the Emperor gave
a state banquet in the King's houor.
was harnessed a very small animal with very
largo ears. Ho was about tho color of ashes
and presented a very meek and doleful appear
ance. "Harry Meredith," cried his mother, "is
this another of your practical jokes? Do you
suppose for an instant that Miss Beatrice is
going to drive that? I'm ashamed of you.
Take him back immediately."
"Oh, no, Mrs. Meredith. Really I am go
ing to drive him. It will bo such an experi
ence! And isn't ho just the drollest-looking
little animal you ever saw?"
Her delight was a great surprise to Master
Harry. He bad thought it would bo a rich
joke. That sho would be "too high-toned to
ride in a donkey cart," especially as sho had
made such a fuss over Jack Rabbit's braying.
Then he bozan to explain to his mother:"
"I thought from tho way Miss Beatrice
spoke that she wasn't used to driving. She
said anything would do, no matter how old or
pokoy. And Jack Rabbit Isn't old or pokey,
either, and yet he's perfectly safe."
"Safe, indeed!" Mrs. Meredith answered.
"And as provoking a donkey as tho most stub
born of the species. Thought Beatrice
oouldn't drive? Why, thero isn't a horso in
your father's stable that she couldn't handle.
But this animal-Beatrice, you'll wish you
had taken my advice when ho stops still in
the middle of the road and refuses to budge
But the young lady only laughed and
stepped into tho cart.
"Oh! how I wish your father could sco
you!" Mrs. Meredith was laughing now.
"Tho effect is positively grotesque. Any of
your swell city friends would agree with mo
that the high dogcart or spider-phaeton is
much more suited to your queenly beauty."
"Yes, Mrs. Meredith, but this is all so novel
and interesting. I mean to eujoy myself
thoroughly this afternoon. Jack Rabbit "and
I will discover pretty places that you prosaio
people have nover seen. Many thanks to you,
Harry. Good-by. Good-by,"Mra. Meredith."
And tho donkey started off: on a brisk trot.
But before they were out of hearing, Harry
called out: "Oh! I say, Miss Browning, if he

Rev. Dr. Stltt Says the World Needs More
of Just Such Kind.
Tho world has long been prono to call re
ligious enthusiasts crazy, and last night Rev.
Dr. J. B Stltt, of Dumbarton Avenue M. E.
Church, held up "Crazy Christians" to tho
view of bis congregatlon.'urglng them to hare
a little more of the divine madness than most
Christians havo nowadays. Ho took as hU
text Paul's words to the Corinthian1 found in
tho Second Eptetle. v:13: "For whether we bo
beside ourselves, it is to God."
"What tho world calls enthusiasm," said he,
"wheu the subject is intensely in earnest re
garding material things it calls madnes;
when he devotes as much enthusiasm to
spiritual things, and the enthusiast himself is
a 'crank' or a 'lunatic' But let me tell you
that no form of sanity is more acceptable to
God tiian is this madness an utter abandon
ment of self to do His will. Far from being
madness, It i3 the highest form ot sanity and
a long step toward greatness. Socrates, you
know, said that a man could not be a great
orator unless h wero mad.
"The paasfon of absolute self-forgptfulness
for Christ's sake is tho ono thing needful to
day. Not a froth, a mere effervescence, but
a holy purpose to do the will oi God. Tho
civilization of the world Is due to such mad
ness, und the welfare of the church has come
from such fanatics. Both world and church
need more of them.
"Tho worldling calls such men as Luther,
Pnmsell, Bergh. and Parkhurst fools. Tho
Catholic Church thought it charitable when it
called Luther crazy. The Wesleys wero
thoueht mad in their day. But Christ says
"thou fool" to the man of the world who lays
up his crops in his nowly-built barns. Whoso
word will you take, Christ's or that of the
man of tne world?
"Lay up foryourselves treasures in heaven, '
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and
thieves do not break through and steal. Don't
be afraid to sacrifice the worldly treasures be
cause the world calls you mad; for your wis-
aom 13 not of this world and men do not un
"The religious man is charged with wor
shipping ono whom ho has not seen nor
heard and cannot know. It 13 forgotten that
only tho spiritually minded can worship God
m the beauty of holiness, and only he can see
tho necessity of worship and realize the joy of
coming la "contact with the Father. Tho
Christian is the onlysnno man, and if you are
not sane now there will be sanity in your soul
whon you come to pass into eternity.
"Tho church needs more men with the ,
sanity of religious enthusiasm. AH re orms
come Jcom them, and only when we reulize '
that the madness of an enthusiastic righteous
ness beyond that of tho Scnles and Pharisees 1
is a prerequisite that the church will take ito
proper level. The man beside himself out
side of himself working for God will do i
more than all others to make the world better
to lift his fellows in the scale of right, and
truth toward God.
HOW GOD IS REVEALED TO WEN.
A Scholarly Sermon Delivered by Rev.
Buxton Smith, of Canada.
Rev. Buxton Smith, dean of the diocese ot
Ontario, Canada, a delegate to the convention
of tho Brotherhood of St. Andrew, occupied
the pulpit of the Church of tho iscension last
night. A good-sized audience greeted tho
distinguished Episcopalian and listened with
much interest to his scholarly address.
He based his exhortation upon the words of
the ninth verse of the thirty-sixth Psalm: "In
Thy light shall we see light."
It was a discourse upon the revelations of
God as manifested through nature, but more
particularly through thd life and teachings of
Tho preacher spoke of the mystery sur
rounding our eing; our existence; the"why3
and wherefores of this pain and that sorrow,
and many earthly triab and tribqlations.
Unbelief in a God was in part overcome by
the manifestations of nature. But there are
questions which are constantly presenting
themselves to mankind upon which light has
been devotedly prayed for. The Bi 'le spoko
of n creator; science had demonstrated that
there must be something behind the mere ex
istence of things temporal.
But of this power, what, inquired the
speaker, does nature give to satisfy these
questions? God had, it is true, manifested
himself to a people, called together in the
olden days, as a God of justice, mercy, om
nipotence and power.
But the intimation of His inward character
wo have revealed to us in the life of Jesus
Christ. The light which has been displayed al
lows us to see in man a revelation of a higher
light. Jesus is the ideal man, and bis life
gives us knowledge and hope. We now par
tially comprehend the mysteries formerly ob
scured. Suffering is a mystery to ns, but when it
accompanies sin we can understand it.
When unaccompanied the mystery becomes
great. Man has not learned to evade or
avoid suffering. Christ suffered throughout
his life the greatest sorrow and the most ex
cruciating pain. Thero must be some high
and holy purpose for its existence.
Then there remains tho great my3tery of
death. There wero partial disclosures of a
life beyond, but generally man did not know
until a spirit from on high came and opened
it up for all. Christ came, and the mystery
was explained. The kingdom beyond was
revealed through him.
