One evening I sat brooding over
memories of happier days In my faroff
home before poverty overtook me. I
cried out passionately that I could no
longer endure this starving existence,
stripped of all the pleasures that were
so keenly appreciated by me in the
past. I determined that I would escape
Suddenly I recalled a Halloween tra
dition that If one stood, candle in hand,
before a mirror at midnight and called
one's name aloud three times something
wonderful would happen. Was this the
way to escape from my troubles? I de
termined to to the experiment.
When It was nearly 12 I crept softly
down the stairs and entered the parlor.'
Holding a lighted candle, I stood before
the old mirror, whose tarnished glided
frame gleamed faintly in the nickering
As the last stroke died away I called
my name aloud. The stately syllables
echoed in my ears with unfamiliar ca
dences, Alexia 1'Kstrange. Again I
called, this time with greater effort,
and the mirror reflected only a sketch
of a face lit tints as faint as those of n
dissolving rainbow. For the third time
I strove to call my name. A hoarse
murmur, scarcely Intelligible, passed
my lips, while the face In the mirror
faded to a misty shadow.
For a 'moment I was unconscious, and
then n silvery radiance seemed slowly
to fill the room and fall on something
lying prone before the mirror. CJradu
ally I realized that 1 was still in the
same place and that the mysterious ra
diance was the light of the autumn
moon. But wluit was that prostrate
form whose clear cut, pallid features
woke fleeting, tantalizing memories?
My mind seemed to wander amid a
host of vivid life pictures, and through
them all flitted one figure, the double
of that lying still and cold before me,
Suddenly with n sickening shock came
the conviction that it was my body.
"Is it I?" was the cry wrung from
my anguished heart.
No sound disturbed the sudden still
ness, but in some inexplicable way I
felt that 1 had asked that question and
knew that it would be answered.
though I could not tell whence the re
ply would come.
Still the silence was unbroken. The
chill of the unwelcoming breast made
my spirit faint, and the childish face
stiffened into a sternness that drove me
shuddering to the farthest limit of the
room. At last I realized that I was
dead, and a strange indifference suc
ceeded the tumult of hope and fear.
What did it matter ?
Presently the door opened, and my
landlady entered the room. 1 saw the
shock that I had felt reflected 'in her
face and heard her expression of sym
pathetic sorrow. At least I knew these
things somehow, though my eyes and
ears were forever closed.
Still the time passed. People came
from the church, the undertaker came
with his assistant, a brief service was
held, and they carried my body away.
. Again I murmured in fear and sor
row, "What will become of me?"'
Restlessly I wandered through the
house. It was night, and my good
landlady had retired.
Suddenly I remembered that she was
subject to attacks of sleepwalking,
and the thought occurred to me that I
might control her body while in that
Here, then, was the tool ready to my
hand. In an instant I was beside her.
She stirred uneasily in her sleep and
murmured, "Poor girl!"

The story of the mental development
of Linnie Hnguewood, a blind deaf

age of sixteen she was sent to the Col

and in two years she entered the higher
departments of the college.

FOR THE HOUSEWIFE
Household work, especially kitchen
work, may be so much simplified by a
little method and beginning at the
right endl The woman who starts. to
wash dishes when they are spread all
over the kitchen table makes herself
unnecessary work. How many false
motions does he make and what an
unnecessary number of steps she takes'
She will reach for a plate, scrape it,
drop the knife, wash the plate, then re
peat the process, perhaps picking up
dishes indiscriminately as to kind or
Bize, and, no matter how much she may
hurry, she is working at such a disad
vantage that it Is no wonder dish
washing has a terror for her.
'Contrast this way of stepping around
and it Is no exaggeration with the
way another woman will prepare for
her Work. She clears the sink, scrapes
and piles each kind of dishes by them
Belves; her towels, plenty of them, are
clean and at hand; plenty of hot, soapy
water in the dishpan and the drainer
clear to receive the clean hot dishes,
which require very little drying after
their two successive hot baths. First
the glasses are washed, rinsed und
wiped while the silver soaks in the
suds, then the silver, each relay being
wiped as oon as rinsed ami drained,
while the next is' in the dishpan. The
waters are chansM frequently, as are
the towels, and in this way dishwash
ing becomes pleasanter work, and the
array of shining glass, sliver and china
is a delight to the eye, proving that
there can be a satisfaction even in dish
washing, and it is done in much less
time and with far less effort than in a
haphazard wny.--4'ookliig Club.
An Kn'rcllvv DliiltiK Itooin.
A white and yellow dining room is
decidedly something of a novelty. It
is ditlieult for decorators and home
makers to get away from the idea that
a dining room should be treated in a
markedly dignified if not a somewhat
sulxlued and heavy style. Yellow and
white is not necessarily flippant, and
when the room to be treated is in the
country and has a green ami shaded
outlook the effect is really charming
An apartment of this sort In a cottage

tones of brown and dull soft blues,
The tiled fireplace is in yellowish

table, and a more charming and Invit

The common house fly is above all

flies were intended to serve a good pur

in their work they are liable to do seri

Is believed that flies are effective dis
seminators of disease germs. Coming,

may bring with them some of the mi

If the fly could be confined to his
proper place, which, as I said in the be
ginning, is that of a scavenger, he
would serve a valuable purpose; but,
like some human beings, he may cause
trouble when he goes outside his ap
pointed sphere. New York Tribune.

A Danger Period Through Which
Every Woman Must Pass.
Owing to modern methods of living, not one woman in a thousand
approaches this perfectly natural change without experiencing a train
of very annoying and sometimes painful symptoms. At this period a
woman indicates a tendency towards obesity or tumorous growths.
Those dreadful hot flashes, sending the blood surging to the heart
until it seems ready to burst, and the faint feeling that follows, some
times with, chills, as if the heart were going to stop forever, are only a
few of the symptoms of a dangerous nervous trouble. The nerves aro
