MY SISTER'S GUITAR,

Elvira loves to be in the fashion.
"What's tlio use of making your
selves odd ?'' she often says, reproach
fully, to lticardo and ine, although I

least. " I'm the only one. of us," she
continues, "who is just like other peo

dinner, when we had mushed all our
little duties, and were free to follow our
devices for the rest of the day. Our

. home-folk ourselves (one of our oddities,
perhaps), and so we know very little of
the other lodgers. Our parlor, bed
rooms and little impromptu kitchen are
down here where 1 am writing; but our
brother's bedroom and studio is way up
at the top of the house I should say in
the attic, but for Klvira's sake will sub

tainly sounds better. And occasionally
Kicardo gives us a little news, such as,
"The front-room man sent down his
trunks this morning;" or, "The (icr
man violinist next to me played most
ravishingly yesterday afternoon," or
some such scrap as that ; perhaps if we
had taken more interest in the people
on his top Hour ho might haVe told lis
more, but for a long time we felt indif
ferent about them.
Hut I have wandered flights away from
what 1 was saying.
Elvira talked so much about fashion
that, after listening patiently for a reas
onable time, I answered:

adopt now, that you harp so ou this one

hesitated, "and 1 enjoy the extreme

of course. "

lie cried merrily, "wiiere's the guitar?
Don't you knowtlrit it is tlio fashion for
people to carry such objects now? Why
didn't you bring it home?''
"It wanted stringing, and one of the
frets was broken."
Kicardo gravely placed his parcel in
her lap. "There is something for your
dinner to-ruorrow -a little tribute, a
small concession to style."
Elvira took oil' thepaperand disclosed
a can of string beans.
"String things are so fashionable,"
began Kicardo, meekly, "thai I thought

was Elvira so infatuated by her desire
to be n la mode as to buy t ho horrible
looking thing! And would she never
come down-stairs. I felt half afraid to
be left alone with it.
Half-an-boiir passed, and my impa
tience could no longer bear it. "I locked
the door, and mounted the stairs to my
brother's studio. As I went tip I heard
strains of the niot enchanting music,
interrupted by loud talking and impa
tient tones, and as I entered I saw Kic
ardo standing In fore his eastd, looking
now at his work wit ) tin air of satisfac
tion, and now at Elvira, as she stood
with her oar against the wall of the next
room. The can of string beans was roll
ing over the floor.
Oh, sister! said Elvira in a loud
whisper, as she saw nie approach,

A noise of a door opening nod closing

and a voice cried down: "'lell Haphaelo

The meeting then seemed to break up,
and t ho people dispersed; and then I
told Elvira that a largo case had arriv
ed, and was on the floor down-stairs.
She could hardly wait for the musi
cians to get out of the way, she was in
such a haste to go down, and iu a mo
ment or two we wero all in the room
where the huge instrument lay.
"Ye powers!" exclaimed Kicardo,
aghast at tho sight of the case.
Elvira's eves wero wide with astonish
ment, "Wrial is the baleful thing any
way?" she asked, touching it delicately
with her little foot, as if she thought it
might bite. "And where did it come
"A foreign-looking man, very respect
ful, but wholly incomprehensible, left
it about half an hour before I went up
stairs," I replied. "It looks like those
monstrous atl'airs they use iu tho or
chestras. Are you sure it is the fashion,
"I should hotie not," she replied,
looking wrathful ly at Kicardo, who was
chuckling over her discomfiture. "1
wonder why they didn't scud mo a
brass horn or a trumpet," she added,,
"Or a bass drum," suggested Kicar
do. "Mighn't it possibly be the missing
'cello that caused the disturbance up
stairs?" he observed, thoughtfully, al
ter his mirth, and 'Vim's wrath, and my
surprise had subsided.
And, as if in reply, came a distinct
rap at tho door, "and I believe wo all
started, as if wo thought it had come
from something inside the black case.
Kicardo opened the door. Then! stood
a large, fair gentleman, w hom he intro
duced at once as Professor Felix. Th
latter bowed, as ho said, "There ha
been some mistake about a musical in
strument, and this man here," pointing
to an unintelligible: foreigner, who stood
grinning and bowing behind him, "says

nie if this is Hue?"
Explanations followed, and the gen
tleman was about totake his leave when

her recovered treasure with unconceal
"That pleases you?" he asked, with
"Delights me, enchants me, satisfies
me," she returned, valiantly braving
his scorn. "Hut when I know how to
play, perhaps 1 shall use it for "kind

"My sisters were in my studio," said
Ricardo, apologetically, "ami heard
your remark. You were talking pretty

"And besides," added Elvira, reck
lessly, "I had my ear against the wall,
so as not to lose a note of that heavenly

you a teacher?"
"I am a violinist myself." he said,
smiling, "but I understand the guitar
as well. If Mm require my services at
any time I shall be happy to lieconre
"But, professor," blundered Ricardo,
"you refused half-a-dozen pupils the
other day, and you told me you didn't
mean to teach any more!"
"That was for the violin," he return
ed quickly, while the color deepened in
his fair cheeks; "it will be a novelty
and a rest for me to teach the guitar,
and and. iu short. I make an excep

Thus it was that he became fust her in

Santa Fe, New Mexico, is the oldest city
iu the United Stales. It has reached tho
end ot its tirst third of a thousand yeurs
its teiiio-iuilleinal period. The Tei tio-Mil
leiuiiul Celebration and Minintr mid Indus
trial Exposition, which will be inaugurated
there ou the 2d of July and close ou the Ud
of August, will be an event ot grout histo
rical as well as practicil importance to the
country at large. It is intended to com
memorate the three hundred and thirty
third anuivcrsary of the Spanish settlement
oi tne place.
Which will constitute the practical part of
the celebration, will be an epitome of tho
mineral, agricultural, horticultural, btock
and general industrial resources and caps

who hie interested in either mining, seri

portunity lo visit New Mexico this season,

It has been the general belief heretofore
that agriculture in New Mexico would not
pay. I bis is an untortunate ermr. At the
exposition will be teen taniples of all sorts
ot truits and field products which vie with
those of prolific Kansas. With irrigation
the soil of the Territory can be made to
yield immensely, and there is no pursuit
more remunerative than that d fanning.
Agricultural products, of all kinds, bung
high prices upon u ready iiiaikct, always
accessible in the growing mining towns,
and the cost of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle sad sheep country, too,

the American occupation of lsj-i'i. These
representations will be illustrated by cavtil

distinctive expeditions into New Mexico
and the surrounding ten itory. There will
al?o be numerous tablcuux, the whole com

various Indian games, races and dances by
the l'ueblos, descendants of the ancient in
habitants of the. Territory; ambuscades and
sham lights by the Zunis, with exhibitions
of their peculiar rites and ceremonies, one
ol which will be a primitive dance repre

dances and juggling; original Aztec dances,
in which both Mexicans and Indians will

Advice to Mothers.
Are you disturbed at night and broken
of your rest by a sick child suffering and
crying with pain of cutting teethf If so,
send nt once and get a bottle of Mrs. Wins-
ow's Soothing Syrup for Children Teeth
ing. Its value is incalculable. It will re
lieve the poor little buH'crtr immed

no mistake about it. It cures dysentery and
Iiarrbo-a, regulates the stomach and bow-
els, cures w ind colic, softens the gums, re-
luces inllammation, and gives tone and
energy to the whole system. Mrs. Wins-

tonic or gentle stimulant, especially at this
season. The wine made at Speer's Mount
Prospect Vineyards, in New Jersey, callo
Speer's Port Grape Wine, is usel in the At

and is regarded as pure, and is very popu-
ar among physicians. It is especially
beneficial for females and old people. S'.

A friend in need is a friend indeed. This
none can deny, especially when assistance
is rendered when one is sorely afllicted
with disease, more particularly those com
plaints and weakness so common to our
female population. Every woman Bhould
know that Electric Hitters are woman's true
friend, and will positively restore her to
health, even when all other remedies fail.
A single tr,al always proves our assertion.
They are pleasant to the taste, and only cost
fifty cents a bottle, sold by Jiarclay Hros.(2)
