When Mrs. Poppy that dreadful flirt

But now I notice, with great surprise,
She's Fcvcrcal patterns of largest size.
Tho Fuchsia sisters those lovely belles I
Improve their styles as the mode compels;
; And, though everybody Is loud In their praise,
They ne'er depart from their modest ways.
And the Pansy family must have found
Queen Elizabeth's wardrolra under ground;
For In the velvets and satins of every shado
Throughout tho season they're all arrayed.
Pinks and Daisies and all the flowers
Change their fashions, as we change ours,
And those who knew them In olden days
v Are mystified by their modem ways.
) Who seta the fashions, I'd like to know,
For the little people beneath the snow t
And are they busy a weary while
Dressing themselves In the latest stylet
In ono of tlio splendidly decorated sti
loons ttt St. .Tunics' wns assembled n
group of young and lovely girls, whose
delleitto fingers were busily employed in
different kinds of ornamental needle
work which, under their skillful arrange
ment, formed bouquets which rivaled
nnturo in the brilliancy of their colors
nnd accurncy.of shades. They weru tho
Queen's maids of honor, nnd between
their gay chattering nnd busy lingers
employed tliutimu while waiting for her
rising. Tho only grave person in the
assembly was the Dowagei' Duchess
D'Alby, the chief of tho ladies of honor.
Among tho blooming group the young
est was remarkable for the simplicity of
dress and the (julet modesty of her
whole appearance. Her attlro was n
dress of black velvet, closed to the
throat, but of which tho skirt, open in
front, disclosed an underdress of white
satin; tiie sleeves came just below the
elbow, and coqucttishly disclosed the
arm and hand of tho most dazzling
whiteness. A plaited tucker encircled
Iter graceful neck, on which hung a
chain, to which was attached a large
cross, and tho luxuriant hair, simply
parted on the forehead and confined by
n largo scarf, completed her costume.
This was the daughter of one of the
most illustrious families in Scotland.
'Her father, Lorfl ltuthven, united to a
princely fortune a pedigree of which lie
was more proud than of ids wealth.
Lucy, his daughter, had recently ar-
. rived at tho English court on her ap
pointment to a post in tho queen's house-
hold, there to complete the education
which has been carefully guided by her
father. Retired and simple in her taste,
her mind instinctively sought tho sub
lime in tho works of nature and of art.
Sho excelled In painting, nnd iter genius
had created a world of her own in the
'dally contemplation of the productions
of the best masters which adorned the
galleries of lier father. Paul Veronese,
Gultlo, and Rubens were of tho number
of her friends, nnd she vowed tiiem
eternal gratitudo for" tho light their tal
ents had sited on her solitude.
Tho habits and manners of Lucy con
trasted strongly with those of her own-,
jianlons, who had been habituated to
more independence and liberty. Gen
tle .and timid to excess, she scarcely at-'
empted to answer tho sportive nnd 'of
ten mischievous sallies of her com
panions. Tho largo clock in tho saloon chimed
tho hour of 10. All eyes were directed
to it, and several voices exclaimed,
"He's very late!" just h a domestic
announced "Thu painter, Van Dyek."1'
Tho announcement caused a general'
ngltntlon among tho smiling gncmp.
lEach ono changed her position on her1
welvot scat, rearranged her dress, and,
.composing her countenance, .sought to'
;givo additional grace to her aspect, j
'The young pupil of Itubcns, albeit .no-1
(Customed to tiie sight of beauty, could'
mot suppress a murmur of admiration

'Tho old duchess, supposing tho young
Qialnter's embarrassment to bo caused
.by her own imposing appearance, to
Qiioourugu him, addressed him in tlicsu
words: "I am told you liavo talent,
"Those who liavo so informed you do
iuiu too much honor, madam. DouUt
ilt'ssitliey judge mo by my intentions;
1ml I have as yet produced nothing
worthy of attention."
Thoru was as nuioli confidence and
iwbloprido in tho reply of tho painter
as there had been iirroganco and ini
pertinence in the address of the noble
Lusy,, who possessed tho high spirit
of her rtiountry, wis shocked at tho in
solent tone of til dnyhess, MyJ now
blushed with ploj- niro nt tho reply of
Van Dyek. AyheBoffytfftsted ap
provingly tan Ins face ho understood hor
feelings, ftnA thanked liegtiy a look for
her generous sympathy.
"Woll, we lmll boo. Her Majesty
wishes to renew tho ornament of her
chapel; so you will bo fully employed.
A residence will !bo assigned you fa yoal

fit rcsldonco, besides ;v pension from tho

nu artist well."
"Art cannot bo paid for, my Lady
DuoIujss, nnd If I possessed tho talent to
which f aspire tho favours which you
howl could not purohaso them."
"Tils Is all very woll you aro proud
and wo nro noblo, but, novortholoss,
those honours are conditional. You
will bo chosen painter to tho Queen If
you succeed in gaining tho prizo which
Is offered for tho most perfect hea'd of
"Ah, 111 ad am I if tho patronage of her
Majesty is offered mo only on tlioso
conditions, I fear I shall not obtain It.
"And why not?"
"Dccauso I shall not gain tho prize,"
replied lie, witli an expression of sad
ness, which was instantly reflected on
the face of Lucy
"Why do you refuso mo this honor?
Do you fear to fall?"
"No, madam; but how shall I rcprc
sent as she should bo represented tho
mother of the Saviour? Whcro shnll
find a model?" As ho pronounced
theso words his eyes rested on tho niv
gelie face of Lucy. "I have hitherto
sought in vain tho combination of mild
ness, sweetness, nnd candour whlcl
should characterise tho queen of hcav.
The lire of genius which Illuminated
tho handsome countennnco of Van Dyek
elicited the admiration of nil observers.
"Hut I should Imagine that there
would be no dllllcttlty in obtaining mod
els for painters.
"Tho models which can bo obtained
for hlro are beautiful without doubt
have sought In vain for thu dignity and
purity which I liavo never seen united
but in a uoblo lady who would disdain
to sit to a poor artist."
Tho animated nnd nrdent glanco of
Van Dyek embarrassed Lucy; it told
her that ho had at last found the object
his fancy had depicted. Tho duchess,
howevever, had not observed it, nnd
"Who is this noblo lady?"
"The virgin herself, madam!" How
ing profoundly, nnd giving a parting
glanco at Lucy ho added: "If I gain
tho prize you shall see mo again, madam;
if not-1 icavo England."
He took immediate possession of his
apartments, where he could at tho same
time paint his Madonna and copy the
frescoes for the chapel. With his mind
full of tho celestial faco ho had just
seen he seized his pencil and endeav
ored to trace its lineaments. .Hut the
extreme sensibility, so useful to art when
time has claimed it, was his chief ob
stacle. Ho felt too deeply to succeed in
expressing tho idea which lllledhissoul
The day passed In fruitless attempt, and
the night surprised him, dissatistlcdand
In tho mcantimo Lucy had suffered
severely for tho prcfereneo shown by
Van Dyek. Tho envy and jealousy of
her companions found vent in impertin
ent sarcasm, so that on separating for
tiie night her mind was tilled witli this
idea, nnd after nightly prayer ids name
was tiie last on her lips.
It was midnight. The heavens shone
with a thousand sparkling stars and a
dark light spread itself on tho old abbey
which stood solitary nnd alone among
A window of tho palace opened, and
a shadow passed slowly along tho bal
cony and staircase, crossed along tho
court, and reached tho monistory.
It would bo dillicult to say how this
liguro had left tho palace and penetrat
ed so far; but she must have been well
acquainted with all tho turnings, for in
a short time. fho crossed the long avenues
and, arriving at ono end of the galleries
of tho chapel, she found herself In the
painter's work-room, and, passing light
ly on, seated herself, without lookitig
around her, In front of his easel.
Oil, surprise! oh, joy! this being, so
culm, so beautiful, is Lucy! The des
ponding artist, wlto had beon unable to
retrace her feature on his canvas, now
beheld a living model before his eyes.
What could have induced her to
come? What idea could given her thu
courage and resolution? Ho threw him
self on his knees before her, but Lucy,
motioning him to rise, pointed tq his
pencil. Her look penetrated him witli
a llaine so pure that he forgot the
reality of his vision his astonishment
seemed ho him a want of faith. Trau-
ported by his imagination to an ethe
real sphere, ho seemed above tho earth,
and in tho midst of tho sublimo concerts
of angels ho beheld Mary, environed by
divine .rays. Ho was no longer the
poworless artist who had just thrown .at
Ids feet his unsuccessful pencil the
artist replacd the man, Mute, and
breathless, inspired by mysterious
fctrcngth, ho seized his palette. His
colours gave tho form, nnd his soul the
llifo in a few hours ho created the most
beautiful and most pure of Virgins.
When tho young girl saw that, after
tracing her features, ho was occupied
in imparting to his picture tho houl
which appeared to him, sho arose silent
ly, , -and, with n calm nnd assured step,
left tho monastery by tho same road '
eJie had come.
Y.im Dyek, witli wondering eyes and !
oppressed breathing, mado not tho '
slightest ellort to detain her. In his
eyes alio was no loaiger mortal, and in
her ideparture he thought ho saw the
Maduunti departing to her native skies.
Knelututcd by his execution and excite-
men he fell asleep in his arm-chair,
On awakening, his llrt thought was to
examine liU canaas. Transported with
joy at his auccess he thanked, on his
knees, tno angel or womau who so fav
ourod ltj-i. hi vain ho endeavoured
again to Impart thu ideality which ex
tsteii'iii jus imagination, JJ.u liad so
combined the thought of tho Madonna
and of Lucy, and ho determined to dis
cover tho truth, and wroto tho follow
ing billet to tho young girl:
"Toll 1110 If you nra Indeed an angel;
If you do not wisli to deprive of his
senses the poor artist to whom you have
eondeseonded to appear this night; toll
mo if you nro tho Virgin or a mortal!"
It was part of tho duty of tho dowa.

ed tp tho young ladies confined to her
charge. Whnt was lierastonlshmcnt at
rending this cplstlel
"Horror!" cried she. "A child of
high family to violato her duty In seek
ing a painter at midnight!"
She rang, nnd sent for the guilty one,
but her rage redoubled when Lucy,
with her customary gentleness, denied
all knowledge of tho causo of her
reproaches. Tho duchess who ex
pected to witness In her great confusion
or a candid avowal, would listen to
nothing. Thu nlnrm was given in thu
pnlace, and it was decided that Lucy,
disgraced, should bo sent home to her

Witli a lighted llambeau, the duchess,
attended by a numerous suite, followed
Lucy, who traversed again thu great
hall and long passages, and arrived nt
the door of tho monastery. Her culpa
blllty could no longer bo doubted; but
they followed her even to the painting-
room, whore she was already seated be

There are several devices for enabling
the rise of temperature accompanying an
outbreak of lire at a particular place In
a building to ring an alarm-bell by
means of an electric current. There is
the mercurial themometer, in which the
mercury column, on expanding by the
Increased temperature, makes contact
between two platinum electrodes fused
nto thu tube, and completes tho circuit,
nnd there is an arrangement in which
the bimetallic spring, lixed at one end;
is free to curve under the unequal ex
pansion of the metals, and close a cir
cuit in that way. A still simpler plan
lias been recently contrived by M. G.
Dupre, in which tho contents of tho nu
tomatio keys aro kept apart by a piece
of suet or tallow, which on inciting bv
tho heat allows them to conio together
through the operation of a small weight
attached to tho uppermost contact bar.
Tho tallow Is not of course placed im
mediately between tho contacts, for in
that case the fat would act as an insula
tor, and prevent thu How of the current.
Tho apparatus is readjusted after an
alarm by charging it with fresh tallow.
