Mr. Sot theaxt had always teen a ro
mantic man, aud he was still.
Mr. Softheart had wvtT desired to
be. bacbecir. He admired the other sex
too much, bat although he had been in
IoTwith four Morula, three bmnettee
aud five young ladies 'who were neither
one nor the other be had never been
able to pop the question point bLuik,
but delicately insinuated it in scch a
way that his meaning would hare been
a ridll9 to the sphinx, and was, nat
urally enough, nver successful.
JSow, at AO, and growing extremely
etont, he was as romantic as ever. Mr.
Softhcart was very well off and not ill
For six months Belinda Bellow had
been waiting for Mr. Softht-ait . pro
pose aud growing every day more cer
tain tbat he tKishivelyintendedto plane
his browns tone mansion and bank ac
count at her disposal.
Bat, thongh Mrs. Bellows was kind
enough to allow the cook to summon
her to consultations when Mr. Softheart
called, and so leave the pair tete-a-tete,
and although Miss Angelina was equal
ly considerate, and invariably remem
bered that something she wanted very
particularly was np stairs when Ber
mother went to speak to the cook, poor
Mr. Softheart could never bring himself
to the point of saying, "Will you have
"I'll do it bylettor," he said to biia-
self af ter loug consideration. "Women,
co far, have misunderstood rae. I'll do
it iu black and white now. "
And so, on the last day of March, Mr.
Softheart wrote au offer of his hand und
heart, enveloped, sealed it and pat it in
his pocket before be made his evening
call on his beloved Belinda.
Now, it so happened that tbat very
evening Belinda herself had come to a
resolution. Her twenty fifth birthday
was approaching, and she could not af
ford "to waste time. "
If Mr. Softheart meant anythin, he
should say it; if be did not, sho would
accept young Spooney.
When Mr. Softheart rang the bell, be
found the field quite clear at the Bel-
lowses. Miss Belinda had artfully con
trived that it shonkl be so. That per
fidious yr.u:i person had actually pur
chased tickets for a concert; requested
young Spooney, who was half mad with
joy at tbe idea, to accompany Angelina
and herself and on the evening in ques
tion was smitten with a terrible attack
of neuralgia; but, after all, Mr. Spooney
should not have bis trouble for nothing
mamma und Angelina would go.
Ten minutes after tho departure of
the trio !iss B-.tlinda, arrayed in blue
silk, was playing ot sueh a rate on the
piano that it seemed quite certain that
the demon neuralgia must have vanish
She did not even hear Mr. Softheart 'a
ring and started in sweet confusion on
"I'm all alone, she said. "Mamma
and Lina won't be home until 11
o'clock," aud the two talked together
in very low voices, sitting very close to
each other on twin chairs.
Mr. Softheart looked and sighed and
uttered romantic sentiments, bnt he did
not pop the question. Miss Belinda did
all that a modest young lady could to
further this object, but in vain.
She did not know how should she?
that at tho door Mr. Softheart had said
"Look here, girl, put this in Miss
Belinda's room, where she will be sura
to s-e it, and I'll give you a quarter. "
and had presented her with the billet
containing his proposal, crowned by a
silver 35 cent piece.
If the man did not avail himnelf of
sueh a chrMR-e after six months' court
ship, plain evcu to the servants in the
kitchen, why, he meant nothing. Aud
the unhappy, unlucky Mr. Softheart did
not utter the expected words and left at
"He's a contemptible thing," said
Miss Belinda. "I'll show him my heart
is not broken. I'll marry Spooney."
And Belinda wept, for she was bit
terly mortified, and Spooney did not
own a brownstone house.
Belinda wept, as we have said, and
went to lied in the dark. Of course she
did not see the letter in the workhasket,
and no one else saw it nntil the 1st of
Now, in their normal condition, with
no love affairs on the tapis, the Bel
lows were merry people, who indulged
in practical jokes, and April Fool's day
was always religiously kept in the fam
ily. But this year the three particular Bel
lows with whom we have to deal were
not prepared with any practical joke,
though each suspected the other. And
when Angelina, sitting np in bed beside
ber sister, saw the glittering white note
in the workbasket she immediately made
up her mind that it was a trick.
She crept softly toward it and read
the inscription "Miss Belinda Bel
lows" and retired to her pillow again.
. "What a flat trick!" she said to her
self. "Why, Bell will guess at once
unless she forgets that it is the 1st of
Then a thought struck ber. She crept
tiptoe out of the room and down stairs
to the kitchen, where Bridget, with a
smutty face, was making the fire, tak
ing the letter with her.
"Biddy," she said in a whisper,
"come up stairs and awaken my sister

and in a very cross mood, and awaited

And up rtairs she stumped and knock-'

"Last night?" sid Angelina, with a
warning gla-ieo, supptariitg Biddy to
havo. forgotten her li-A-wu.
"I mime this morning," said Biddy,
taking the Lint.
"Give rnc tho kittr," said Belinda,
Then, sr.at-hing it, she tore it deliber
ately into f our pksc-s aud threw them
on the fijor.
That evaning Spooney called to iu
tyziro after Hiss Belinda's health and
found her well enough to wulk out with
him, and Angliua end her uiaauna be
gan to compare notes. Then, and not
till then, the Lt.vr began to lie a mys
tery, end Eio-Jy, being sent for, explain
ed that, to t'.te esi cf her belief. Mr.
Softheart gnve it U. . r In put ia Misa
C'liuila's i .K m the night before. Then
in dismay tho ladies rnumcged the dust
bin and after an hour's search appeared
iu the parlor with (lusty tlresse and
soiled bunds and nine little pieces ot
paper. Thse, deftly pieced together,
madu a whole note, which, being pe
ruse:1, revealed a proposition.
Belinda returned very late with a
very conscious look upon her face and
f tared in astonishment at tbe dusty ob
jects, who nut her with excitement on
their countenances. It was a good while
before the truth could be extracted from
the interjections and ejaculations with
which site was greeted, bnt when at
last it was m:C.a manifest Belinda lis
tened lie iue in a trance. She had in
deed U.vn mutla an April fool ot Mr.
Softheart had really propossd. Tho
b.-ov.iistone house had been ofTered to
her, tho ba:ik stock and all that made
the bachelor r.a eligible match, and sho
that very evening had accepted Spooney.
It was not very complimentary to her
betrothed, bat sho went into hysterics
at cr.co and kept them np for on hour
As fcr Mr. Softheart, he never pro

Short aad Expreaalve Xamee For Popular
flower aa Vacd by Florlata.
That florists and florists' clerks have
a language of their own when it comes
to tho making u? of orders is an inter
esting fact not appreciated by the young
man who wishes fo send a bnnch of vi
olets or roses to his best girl, or the fa
ther of a family in swelldom who re
ceives a large monthly bill for the dec
oration of bis parlors. KespectfuUy and
deferentially does tho florist stand by a
customer and murmur tho longest floral
names without abbreviations.
But when ho fuid his assistants are
rdono horticultural titles are clipped
short. The most cherished and expen
sive blossoms no matter how rreat their
dewy frn;niico may be, are treated
with scant respect
It is "Hey, Jimmy, a dozen of those
'mums,' " a voice will cry. "And don't
forget that lot of 'tubies' for Mrs.
Smith-Smith." Indeed the ardent lover
of blossoms would be disenchanted if
she listened to the talk of the trade for
a brief half hour.
' There are no rales of abbreviation,
and some cf the longest floral names are
never clipped, but spoken exactly as
they are written. Even the most igno
rant florist's clerk speaks precisely of
hyacinths, geraniums, mignonette, li
lacs, violets poppies, magnolias, or
chids, ivy, jasmine, phlox and carna
tion pinks. His abbreviations are logical
at a rula, and oftener than otherwise
ho makes nse of the first or last sound
of a name.
Here is a brief sauiplo of the Florists
Chrysanthemums, "mums;" tuberoses,
"tubies;" lilies of the valley, "val
lsys;" Jacqueminot roses, "jacks;"
brido roses "brides;" primroses,
"prims;" Maria Louise violets, "Loui
sas" goldenrod. "rods;" stephanotis,
"stepn;" capo jasmine, "capes;" japon
icas, "japs;" nraaryllis "rills;" China
asters, "chinas;" morning glories, "glo
ries;" lemon verbena, "lemons;" nar
cissus, "cissns;" rhododendrons, "den
rtrous;" immortelles, "everlastings."
New York World.
The paatal Whlatle.
New York undoubtedly has an admi
rable mail service. A city letter sent on
its way within business hours will get
there almost as quickly as m telegram,
and not infrequently quicker than a
messenger. Tho deliveries and collec
tions are frequent, the irrirs careful
and courteous, and blindly directed mis
sives are gene-rally delivered to their
owners after a very short bunt. How
letters bearing only the name of com
parative stranper are promptly deposit
ed in office or Hat boxes surprises stran
gers. When the postman drops a letter
ia yonr bouse box, or deposits paper or
packet cn the tiles beneath it, he polls
your bell and whistles. These postal
whistles are similar to those used by the
police. So when tbe bell jingles and the
whistling follows there's no need to
open the door or wonder who's there.
You know all about it Tbe postal whis
tle could be adopted with benefit else

A mean solar day is the average or
mean of all the apparent solar days in
a year. Mean solar time is that shown
by a well regulated clock or watch,
while apparent solar time is that shown
by a well constructed sundial. The
difference between tbe two at any time
is tho equation of time and may amount
to 1" minutes and 21 aeoonds. ' Tbe as
tronomical day begins at noon, and the
civil day at tha preceding midnight
The sidnreal and mean solar days are
both invariable, but one day of the lat
ter is eqsal to f day 3 minutes and
56.555 seconds of tho forcer.

Tho conductors on tbe night runs era
usually nioro genial than thoso who
look after tha fares in tbe daytime.
Just why this should bo so is not quit?
clear, but the fact that most of them
conduct affairs of the heart with you us
women who are engaged in domestic
service during the daytime may have
something to do with it In making as
signments tbe aim usually is to put the
married men ou tbe day runs and the
single men on at night. As soon as the
evening dishes are put of the way tho
lady in whom he is interested boards
bis car, and between one cud of the line
and the other they manage to have a
lengthy tete-a-tete. Tho gripman is
more, fortunately situated than the con
ductor in this respect, as his liu.'e

dren. Mothers hare repeatedly told me of its
food effect upon their children.
Da. Q. C Oaooon,
" Castoria la the bett remedy for children of
which 1 am acquainted. I hope tbe day ia not
far distant when mothera will consider the real
interest ot their children, and use Castoria in
stead of tbe various quack nostrumswhichara
destroying; their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, aocthinjr, a nip and other hurtful
agents dowa their throats, thereby acudiug
(hem to premature graves."
