"Tick, tick, tick." went something

half frightened. It was onlv a chx:kjbut

thought Nellie, turning up her china
nose, in ono corner of the room Hood
something that she couldn't make out
at first, but present! v dies.aw in it three
little black heads, which perked them
selves up above the dingy coverlet, and
negsn to cry loudiv:
"Lllen! cousin Ellon! Why don't

sitting upright in tho trundle-bed.
"Cousin Ellen, wash my face first!"
squealed head number two.
"Cousin Ellen, bring mo a piece of
cake? shouted head numbor three.
"Lazy, naughty children!" thought
Nellie; "why don't they wait on them
selves! That poor Ellen looks ready to
faint. What a fool she must be to let
them speak to her like that?"
The door opened again, this time

"Yes, ma, Couslu Ellen's real bad.
She's been scolding mo llko tho mis

ono, still in bed.
"And sho pinched mo!"
"Aud throw boiling water all over

"Ellen! Ellen!" called a man's voice;
"where tho deuce aro my boots? I

breakfast, will you? It's lato now."
"Why don't tW set her to washing at
tho samo time?" tliought tho angry Nel
liu. "Oh, what, a fool! what a irrent
foot ahe Is!"
But Ellen went qulctlv out and found
tho boots and dished the broakfast, and
then, still holding tho babe, came back
to the children, who fought, and bit, and
screamed, and toro, and only agreed in
one thing, and that wa to abusu Cous

You aro a perfect miracle to me. You
have been at work fcinco daylight; ami
here I am, tired out already, though I
haven't done a thing but dress mv
self." Nellie began tc think her uot so
much of an angel after all.
"I'm just vexed to death besides;"
went on Grace. "I can't go to Annlo
Warner's to-night, becauso mv boot

ing oixnit them tho other night when I
danced: spiteful things! They were
vexed because John Itaight was so at
tentive; and he will be there to-night,
but I can't go. If lever do have a.
chance, there is always some, reason
whv I can't improve it.""
Again the china-blue eyes looked in
to Ellen's heart, and mw" there a ripple
in the lake. Sho was thinking of cer
tain little savings of hers that were to
have re-trimmed her hat.
Edgar Brittan had asked her to go
that evening to the theatre. She could
not go unless her hat was trimmed, ami
she hal thought of little else for the last
week; for she had never attended &
placo of amusement in the twenty-fivo
years of her life; but then Grace would
bo so disappointed and she was young,
and so Ellen said cheerfully:
"Never mind, Grade; you can have
my money, and go to Annie's and dance
to your heart'6 content."
"But what will vou do with your
hat?" ' 3
"Oh! wear it as it is."
."What! to the theatre?"
"I will not go."
"That will be too bad," groaned
Grace. "I do believe I am monstrous
selfish; but you aro such a dear, good,
solf-sacrificing creature, you won't
mind it, I know. It always seems so
easy for you to give up things; and I do
w want to go, if only to spite the girls."
"She's positively ujrlv 's thoucht Nel
lie, indignantly . .. ...
"That s a tme woman's reason;"
said a ruorry voice. " 'Pou my word I
shall begin to be afraid of even our lit
tle Mother Hubbard. Who knows but
she will turn out a littlo shrew on ray
hands after all."
"Oh! ha! you'ro beginning to find out
aro you?'' said Grace with an odd look.
"Don't expect me to help you through.
You must make your own discoveries
for yourself; I shan't tell on Elleu."
Something like a cloud of suspicion
flitted across Edgar Brittan's face, aud
Ellen colored slightly; for this was the

Tho foundations of physical astron
omy were laid In the invention of the
telescope. Everv one has heard of the
emotion which filled Europe at tha an
nouncement of the discovery of an in
strument which had the power of mak
ing distant object appear as if they
were near. It was at that time that
Galileo, having only lesrned that such
an instrument existed, discovered its
arrangement, constructed one, turned it
toward the sky, and, with this aid, fer
tilized by his genius, made a series of
magisterial discoveries. Theso discov
eries belong pre-eminently to physical
astronomy, and form its first courses.
If we except the sun and moon, which
have a very sensible diameter, and ad
rait of some observations without the aid
of the telescope, all tho stars appear to
the eye only as brilliant points, and ad
mit of no studies except of their motions.
Therefore, an astronomy without the
telescope would never have permitted
us otherwise than as a matter of proba
bility to consider the planets as lie the
earth in form, constitution, and ofuce.
But when it was seen that these brilliant
and almost blazing points were resolved
under the telescope into well-defined
disks, showing indications of continents,
clouds, and atmospheres; when satelli
tes were perceived around those globes
playing the same part to them as the
moon plays to the earth then proba
bilities gave place to ji clear feit&imj.

solar system has been definitively un

on the sun and of its rotation completed
the conception of tho solar svstem and
prepared for the theory of its formation.
Here is marked a" well-determined

Was it possible at once to go beyond
this? Was it possiblo to question" tho
stars in their turn, and lnquro if, liko
the sun, they had a sensible disk, spots,

them; was it possible, in short, to ex
tend to the stellar universe tho notions
