Behind the Scenes.
"Four o'clock and no Ellen , yet ?
What can detain her so? , She- is usual
ly moro punctual than tho clock itself.'
It was scarcely a room in which Lau

ficcut buy windew, with draperies of
embroidered lace.

Before tho words wcra out of her

justing a soft gray shawl over her black
silk dress, and tying the string of
quiet littlo brown velvet bonnet, whose
own crimson rose among its trimmings
ot enameled moss was not unliko tho
bloom of her own cheek.
"I don't think it is going to snow,"
she pondered, looking out ut the gray

As oncor two silent tears escaped

on tho landing outside, nnd a knock

'Yes. it is myself and nono other.
XcU, 1 could not imagino why you did

Ellen tried to smilo faintly.

eyes.
"Dear Ellen you will not refuse to

Eilcn shook her head with a grave

' I can wait, Laura.
Laura looked from the dress to Ellen
with a faeo painted with porplexity.
Suddenly a bright aspiration seemed
to striko her.

"But Laura"
"No buta in the mattor, ifyou please

basket that stood on tho tablo besido
it. ,
"Where is it to go ?
"To .Mrs. Kich lev's in Ilivers street
Whv. Laura, what in tho matter?
"Nothing,- only I am folding this
dress wrong," returned Laura in a low
voice. It was well that Ellen did not
see the scarlet blush that rose to hor
friend's lovely cheek us sho stood with
her back to the bed, smoothing tho lus
trous breadths of purple silk.' Mrs
Kichley s! Laura was almost sorry
that sho had volunteered to go, but it
was to lato to retract her offer now.
' What a selfish littlo creaturel am,'
she mused. 'Poor Nelly ncods the
money so much, itnd cannot go for it
herself, and it isn't at all likely that I
shall sco t loruin
an end of it." .
"Thank you, dear Laura, it is so kind
of j'ou," suid Ellen fervently, ns Miss
Avery came to tho bed-sido with tho
basket on her arm, and black vail
drawn closely over the brown volvet
bonnet.. "Sho owes me throo dollars
for this dress, and thcro are seven dol
lni9 oh tho old account that Bhe has
never paid me.'! . . - -
"Ten dollurB I . I'll collect it, never
fear," said Laura gaily, as sho disap
peared, while to poor hllen it seemed
as if tho sunshino all died out with tho
proueuco of hr beautiful friend, j' ,
It was near dusk when .Miss Aycry
summoning up all her resolutions, as-
condod tho brown stono steps of tho
llichley mansion and rang tho boll.
"Wuut'a, your business ,with Mrs.
Richley?" asked tho servant, suspic
iously scrutinizing the little banket tliat
she carried. Laura bit her lips.' : ThU
manner from servants was an entirely
new experience to her. ; " Yet how often
must poor Ellen have endured it ? , .
"I have called to bring homo a dress
that was finished for her," she said, in
a tone of quiet dign.i,tv .' ! i 1
'O ah yes ; , well I s'poso you'd
best ifalk in." ; , , i ,
The servant conducted hor up stairs
to a sort of sitting .room or boudoir,
where Mrs. Jliohley, a portly damo
about fifty, gorgoously dressed in crim
son pilk, was sitting in her easy chuir
in front of a glowing fire. Laura was
inwardly grateful that tho gas had not
been lighted, particularly when sho
observed Mr. Florian Kichley was
lounging on avolvetsofii in ono of the
ivindow recesses. Mrs. Itichley lookod
up as tho servant ushered in tho now
corner.
"Well, TOun woroan, what do yon
want?"

Laura's chock tinged at tho tono of
conrsc insolence in which hIio was ad
dressed, but alio commanded hcrselt to
reply meekly : i
"1 have brought tiumo 3-our uress,
Mrs. Kichly."
"Where is Miss Way nail ?"
"Sho is ill." '
"Very well; lay down tho dress ; it
ia all right."
But Laura stood her ground valiant

"It is not convenient to-night."
"But, Mrs. Kichley, Miss Waynall'is
ill and needs the money," persisted
Laura. "
"There, Florian," said Mrs. Itichley,
petulantly, addressing the young roan
in the 1 urkish dressing-gown and elab

how it would ho.
"What the dcuco is the matter now?'

A Wonderful Land With Stone

In tho Eastern Slope newspaper we
find a report of many of tho curiosi
ties and the great riches of the Black
Hock country, in tho north-western
portion of California. The reports of
tho singular features of that section are
ef fnnj' yutrn' standing, but aro so
marvelous that they havo seldom ob
tained credence. Among tho wonder
ful stories we have heard is one that
tliere is it petrified tree thcro seven
hundred feet in length I Tho present
report in part confirms previous state
ments, nnd establishes tho fact that
Black Hock is ono of tho wonders of
Iho l'aciflc coast, like tho Yosemite,
tho Big Trees, tho Geysers,- Ac. Be
sides tho curiosities thcro appears to
bo an abundance of silver ut Black
Bock, but tho ore is said to be of an
unusual variety and very difficult to
work; but it has been worked with very
good results at tho mills at Washoo.
Tho quantity of ore is so great that it
is said it will justify tho erection of a
thousand mills. A gentloman who
visited the section, has exhibited to the
editor of tho Eastern Slope very many
natural curiositier peculiar to the coun
try, strange petrifications from tho
ravines, curious water worn pebliles
from the mountain tops; knives, arrow
heads and daggers manufactured by
Indian skill lrom solid Hints; a superior
quality, apparently, of oil blacking,
Baid to contain six hundred dollars in
silver to tho ton; pebble tin, with its
curious fracture, that admits no change
of form, and n thousand strange and
new things. Tho editor says: lie
also tells us of many strange' things
that he saw but could not bring with
him, and many stranger things that he
heard of but did not sco. Among tho
latter list of wonders is a great basin
that contains a petrified forest appa
rently floated there, many vast trees
of solid ' stone, ranging from six to
fifteen -feet in diameter, and from three
to six hundred feet in length. Doubtful

this itrarigo country has a boiling
spring of fresh water, fifteen feet in di

which no drop of wutcr over runs; that
in tho same vicinity there is a flowing
stream of cold and apparently good
water, tho drinking of which induces
venereal disease, and that any water
found by digging, is as salt us salt can
make it; that a half-dollar deposited
in tho soil is eaten up by tho salt, and
