dark hair and eyes, and irregular fea

lovelv. She posessed with good
sense, great intellectual gifts, a pure
and tender heart, trusting, gentle,
loving. She was an easy prey for
the Docter. At first she shrank
from the eager, handsome suitor, dis
trustful of her own charms, arguing
that one so endowed, so gifted, could
not admire one so unattractive as she
modestly considered herself.

over her bright sun. When the

complained that an increase of pract

weary and lonely, but to doubt him
was impossible. JMrs. Evanson,the

easy, graceful, childish manner the

appearance of the most perfect sim

begged they might be friends.
"Alas!" thought Ellen. "What

Aibert and Rosa wtre much to

quest that they might be friends.
Ellen found her society more and
more of a restraint, besides Rosa
wished to absorb all of Albert's at

her, therefore she quietly withdrew,

Ellen would hear their merry voices

Ellen struggled hard against de-

BATHING IN VIENNA.
Trials of a Modest Man Not Accustomed
to Water of the Country.
Prentice Mulford in San Francisco Chronicle.
After a while I discovered that
the Vienese who did wash themselves
washed themselves all over at the
great public baths, and not in the
little pint pitchers of water they
kept in their bedrooms. So I went
to a public bath. I did not know
what to ask for, but I knew German
enough for water. I went in and
said, "Wasser." They took my
meaning immediately, or they
might have seen that 1 need
ed washing. I declare, the ridicu
lous amount of water they furnish
one leads to dreadful results. There
are two passages leading into the
great five-storied bath barrack one
for males and the other for females.
Of course I took the wrong one, and
was shoved back by a woman with
a towel. I didn't see that it made
much difference, for the attendants
on both sides were females. Marie
showed me to my bath-room. Marie
was a big, brown, black-eyed Aus
trian maid, in rotund short skirts.
She went ahead of me. with an arm
iul of towels. She opened my bath
room door. I went in; she came in
after me. I was quite unprepared
for this, but she wasn't. She seem
ed used to it, and went to work. She
spread a sheet on the bottom of the
bath-tub. I don't know what it was
for, but thev always do it. At all
events it takes off the rough edge of
tne zinc tor one s skin. Then she
turned on hot water and waited.
I waited also. Out cf regard for
the proprieties, I removed only my
hat. I would not even take off my
collar before Marie. The water
seemed a long time running in. It
generated a cloud of steam which
gradually filled tbe small bath-room,
and through which vaporish atmos
phere Marie and I saw each other
dimly. Finally she gave me all the
hot water I was entitled to and left.
Relieved I'sprang to the door. There
was no lock upon it. I hunted in
vain for some kind of a fastening. . I
sat down uneasy. Then I removed
iny coot and collar. Then Marie
burst iu again with ' another towel.
Then I went out. How was I to
bathe in peace with that confounded
girl continually intruding on me?
Then 1 tried to turn on some cold
water, and couldn't. ' By this time
I had rt'lnoved many of ', my gar
ments, and barricaded the door with

ine omer day, as a keen looking
business man, with his hat worn on
the nape of bis neck, was standing
on L-lark street, a simple gawky
looking country lad of nineteen, with
a big envelope in his hand and his
mouth and eyes wide open, came
sauntering along, looking anxiously
at all tbe signs which he was appar

man being n-iturally kind-hearted
and desiring to do a friendly turn to
a stranger, said to the boy: "Hi son

"Be you Mr. Smith?" said the
boy. "Well, now I'm right glad I
met you, because I'd clean forgot the
number where the boss said you lived
and I wouldn't have liked to have
gone back- to him without findin
you; it would have looked as
With these remarks the lad took
out a big envelope marked "J. Smith,
Esq., present," in the upper corner
$2,500 U.S. 5-20's," and in the low
er "Commission due, $5. Please re
mit by bearer.
'Ihat s all right sonney, said the
keen business man, as he hauled out
scantily furnished purse, gave the
boy a $5 bill and a quarter,and said,
"There, sonney, that quarter is to
reward you for your cleverness and
fidelity, and, putting the envelope

urely round the corner, ran to Uear-
bon street with the speed of a deer,
skipped lightly round to Madison,
and hailing a car, was whirled away
at a comparatively lightning speed.
JNot till he had reached Union .rark
did he draw the precious envelope
from his pocket, and, with the re
mark, "Pray heaven they are not
registered!" tore it open. He then
found that the'envelope contained
copy of the Chicago Jribune
which he could have purchased at
the office for five cents. Meanwhile
the simple country lad,' entering a
saloon in the vicinity of the Sherman
House, has absorbed a beer, salted
away the $5 bill with seven others

mark, " The flsh is biting very numer
ously to day," takes another big en
velope from his pocket and once

looking business man.

"No, I don't mean exactly to as
sert that Republicans are any more
honest, as a rule, than Democrats,"
said a Republican M. C. from Ne
braska, during a heated political dis
cussion in i he Baldwin reading room
the other night, "but I would like to
relate a little incident ot my own
personal canvass that struck me
with much force. Just after my
nomination I took a careful census
my district, which is a small one,
and was surprised to discover that
the election would surely result in a
tie vote, there being exactly an equal
number of Democrats and Itepubii-
cans to a man. Y ell, the day be
fore election an old farmer who liv
ed near me was passing through
some timber, carrying a lot of poison
ed meat and bread intended for a
troublesome fox which had been de
pleting his chicken house, when two
rascals lumped out ot the ousnes,
knocked the old man down and ty
ing him to a tree, proceeded to rob
him. While they were so engaged
occurred to the farmer to beg
them very pitiously to spare his
unch, as he had eaten nothing all
day. They immediately sat down
and eat the bread and meat before
his face, laughing loudly at the
joke. In ten minutes they were stu-
pehed, and when the old man was
released a few hours later, the rob
bers were both dead."
"Well, I don't 6ee what that's got
do with the subject," said one of
"Just this: Ihe next day 1. was
elected by exactly two majority
don't you grasp the idea?"
And the silence could have been
cut with a knife as the Democrat or

Dr. Waters, of Boston, author of the
alkaline treatment for burns, gives this
advice : Apply to the burned surface
bicarbonate of soda, if it is a wet surface,
in fine powder ; but if it is a dry burn,
use a pusitt oi Lm'i-.i uunuitj vi bouh una
water, and apply to the burnt surface.
This relieves sun-burns as well as bums

and steam. Always dispose the burnt
surface so that the blood can gravitate
toward the heart, if possible, as other
wise a continuous puin may be felt, due
to the dilution ot the blood vessels from
the weight of the coutained blood."
A Mother's Love.
- Mothers live for their children,' mak

their tenderness and love so freely, that

lhose loving hearts go down to their
graves with those hours of secret apony
untold. As themother watches by night,
or prays in the privacy of her closet, she
weighs well the words which she will
address to her son, in order to lead him
to a manhood of honor and usefulness.
She will not tell him all the grie and
deadly fears Which beset her soul. She
warns him trembling lest she say over
much, bhe tries to charm him with
cneery love, while her own heart
bleeding. JNo worthy and snccessful
man ever yet knew the breadth and
deptn or the great obligation which he
is under to the mother who guided his
heedless steps at the time when his
ciiaracter for virtue and punty was so
narrowly balanced asrainst a mnrM nf
vice and ignominy. Let the dntifnl sn
do his utmost to sooth his mother's
pathway ; let him obey as impurity as
he can his mother's wishes and advice ;
let him omit nothing that will contri
bute to her peace and happiness, and
yet he will part from her at the tomb
with adebt to her not half discharged.
A Word to Young Men.
An exchange says :
"There are more young American men
m the penitentiaries in this country
learning trades than there are outside
of them. The principle cause for this is
that we are educating ouryoung men for
gentlemen trying to make lawvers,
preachers, doctors, and clerks out of ma
terial that nature intended for black
smiths, brick-layers, carpenters, tailors,
and other honest 'hewers of wood and
drawers of water.' "
There is too much truth in the above
assertion. It is almost impossible to find
a young man now who is willing to learn
a trade, lor tear ne will lorteit ins digni
ty (?) by doing a little drudgery. V
need an apprentice at this office a boy
with brains and willing hands yet out
of all the excellent material in this city,
only one boy has so tar applied. JUany
boys would become printers if we would
promise to give tnem a man s wages and
nnt them to work in advanced Trades
before they learned the a, b, c's of the
art. (Jome, boys, lay aside your lalse
"dignity;" roll up your sleeves and pitch
n. You will never win without work.
Horace Greeley was once a printer's
devil, and Ben. Franklin served five
years. Hundreds of our leading states
men swept offices, made fires and washed
rollers. Learn a trade, boys: no man
can steal it from you, and it is therefore
more valuable than an inheritance ot
gold or bonds. Louisiana (Mo.) Journal.

with dirt. A. good deacon in the vestry
"Brother Spurgeon, let me get a brush,
and take off some of that mud; you can't
JJou t be looiisn. deacon," said ilr.
Spurgeon, aa his usual good-humored
way. "Don't you see the mud is wet.
and if you try to brush it off now, you
will rub the stain into the cloth? Let it
dry, and then it will come off easy
enough, and leave no mark."
Ibere is an admirable hint here for
everyone. When evil spoken against, as
we may be tor the sake el truth, and
men throw mud at us, don t be in a
hurry about brushing it off. Too great
eagerness in this respect is apt to rub
the stain into the cloth. Let it dry ; and
then, by and by, if need be, it can be re
moved by a little effort. If there is a
little trouble, don t foster it by haste and
hurry in doing something. Let it alone;
let it dry; and it will become more
easily settled than you think now. Time
has a wonderful power in such matters ;
and it is surprising how many things in
this world would be far better arranged,
and how many difficulties easily gotten
over, by judiciously letting them dry.
Tomatoes First Eaten in America.
"Seaweed." a Newport correspondent
of the Boston Transcript, asks for further
information concerning the hrst eating
of tomatoes in America. The correspond
ent, says: "It is a Newport tradition
that' tomatoes were first eaten in this
country in about 1823, in a house still
standing on the corner of Corne and
Mill streets. About that time there came
here an eccentric Italian painter, Michele
Felice Corno. He bought a stable on the
street now called for him, fashioned it
into a dwelling house, and there lived
and died. Previous to his coming, and
lontr after, tomatoes, then called "love
apples," were thought to be poisonous.
A gentleman toiu me recently inai in
1819 ho brought them from South Caro
lina and planted them in hisyard, where
they were looked upon as curiosities, and
Erized for their beauty. They became
iter, however, a very unpleasant missile
in the hands of a small boy. A charm
ing old lady also told me that in 1824 she
was sitting witn a sick person wnen
some one brought in to the mvaiia
as a tempting delicacy some tomatoes.
"Would you poison her?" was the ex
clamation of the astonished attendants ;
and vet Corne in his section of the town
had been serving them for a year pre
vious. As late as 1835 they were regarded
as poisonous throughout Connecticut.
Love at first sight rarely happens so
opportunely as in a San Francisco ro
mance. A V irely young wornan in St
Louis having the misfortune to lose her
husband, to whom she was tenderly at
tached, took her child and went back to
her old home in California. She was re
ceived very coldly by her step-father,
and after vainly struggling to get em
ployment, was finally turned into the
street by her mother. For a moment
phe was completely overcome, but re
membering an acquaintance on Bush
street, to wnom she had been introduced,
she sought the hospitable home of one
of the kindest of women. As with tot
tering limbs she was going up the steps,
her streneth failed, and with a cry of
despair she fell to the bottom, with her
child closely clasped to her bosom. . The
mother and child were immediately
taken into the house and restored to
consciousness. Among the friends of
the family who happened to be present
was a gentleman, who was impressed

After all the seucb. for some method

idea, which is simply a continuous box,
fourteen inches wide and eight deep, in
which to make a real bed and ballast for
the rail. She puts in first a layer of tar,
then cotton, then gravel, coated over
with asphalt to keep out the water. She
got her patent, and it was then adopted
by the road, having been in use since
October, 1878. Mrs. W. is of a mechani
