SENT HOME IN DISGRACE.
I had beou sent to IxJarding school when
only Vi years old, and liming a great unde
veloped capacity for tnisnhiof, it was just the
place of all others 1 should have been kept
way from. 1 hnd longed with the usual
fervor of a foolish (not knowing what
was good for her) to leave school, and when
the letter came at tho end of my fourth year
saying, as ptia had dtK-ided to take us all on
a trip westwurd, I might leave before my
term was up, it lacking only six mouths of
commencement, I was simply wild with de
light; and as for the dear old doctor, I am
afraid he was delighted, too. But after all
J guess ho did miss me a littlo.
What a pity, 1 thought (as I had nearly
finished packing), tliat I can't have one good
bouncing time before I leave, sighing, "I do
believe I am sorry to go," as I turned to my
room run to, who was helping mo.
"Weill 1 should hope you were," she re
plied Indignantly, "after wo have wasted
buckets of tears on you to hare you say that."
" Well," I say decidedly, "I only wish there
was a chance for some fun to-night, the last
one I will tie here."
"Kitten!" I exclaim suddenly, after a few
moments1 silence, "I have got an ideal"
"Good gracious!" jumping up in pretended
alarm. "Hold on to it; you may never get
"Oh, dou't bo such a gooso. Listen. You
know to-night the Owls' club give a dance at
the city haJi, and Charlie has said he would
give all ho was wortli to have mo go, so I am
going! What do you think of that for a
"Sharlie Whorton!" gasjwd Kitten, "I
should think you did have an idea! How on
earth are you going to do it f Not going to
ask permission, I suppose!"
"Ask your grandmother!" I retorted, with
more force than elegance. "You must think
I am green. No, 1 will tell you how we will
fix it. At tea this evening I will slip a note
to Charlie, ami tell him to wait for me at the
corner of the lane at 8 o'clock, and after we
go up to bed I will put a dummy iu my place,
tie a long cord to your little finger, hang it
out of the window thank goodness, we are
only on tho second floor borrow Dell's blue
dress and skip by the light of the moon, and
when I come home I will give the cord a
gentle pull, and you can come down and let
"Oh, yes!" says Kitten, "you rattle It off
Dice enough, but will you be able to do itf '
"Wait and see if I dou't," I answer, nod
ding my head decidedly; "only will you do
your part anil help me?"
"Of course," replied Kitten affectionately;
"It's a pity l wouldn't on your last uight."
"All right. Kit! iou're a duck! I must
write the note to Charlie first, and have it
ready; next ask Dell for the loan of her blue
dress and see if it will fit, and last, do up my
hair in papers. I guess that's all Come ou."
And rushing into the next room I bounced
upon a tall, yellow haired girl, about my
own size, and began coaxingly:
"Dell, darling, won't you let me wear your
blue dress this evening! Iam going to the
ball, and mine are all packed up."
"What!" shouts Dell, jumping up iu her ex
citement; "you dout mean it?"
"Hush!" I said wamingly; "tho old lady
will be sure to hear you! Yes, I'm going to
risk it. I will have to go home to-morrow,
and they cannot punish me anyway, if they
do find it out."
"Of course you can have it." said Dell, with
all a school girl's delight iu forbidden fruit.
"I only wish I dared go too, but you will be
far enough away by this time to-morrow,"
"Thanks, awfully!" I answered hurriedly.
"I must Lido it now or old Wagner will see it
and cmoll a mouse,' as she says." Suiting the
action to the word I fixed it safely in our one
wardrobe, under some of Kitten's dresses,
with a good deal of satisfaction.
"Now, Kit," I said impressively, as we
walked slowly toward the dining room at tea
time, "don't forget what you must do, and
be sure to sleep with one eye open."
"Don't worry," said Kitten, lightly; "I will
be all right." And as we take our place at the
table, I watch my opportunity to toea my
note to Charlie. Seeiug him look at me, I
give a nod, und he knows at once what I
want, having had a good deal of experience
In that lino before. As Mrs. Wagner turned
her head to speak to the teacher at the other
end of the long table, I gave the note a deft
toss and landed it right ou top of tbe mashed
potatoes ou Charlie's plate.
"Mr. Kelly!" said the doctor quickly, look
ing up just in timo to seo Charlie make a
sudden dig at his potatoes, "what is the mat
"No-nothing nothing at all, sir!" stam
mered Charlie, making a desperate effort to
appear unconcerned. "I was only I thought
1 saw a fly in my potatoes."
" Tis to bo hoped you will find it," responds
the doctor dryly, "for you seem quito upset
by it." However, ho seemed satisfied, for be
said no more about it.
As we left our seats Cliarlio gave me a sig
nificant glance, as much as to say whatever
the note contained it was all right.
"Kit," said I iu a muffled whisper, as I
emerged from the bed clothes, "how does the
land lay I It's a food time uow, is it notf"
"Not yet," replied Kitten in answer to my
last question; "they haven't settled down to
good hard Ktudy, but if you don't hear from
me again in about ten minutes you had better
I had asked permission to retire early on
the usual plea Of a headacho, and it being my
last night I was excused from further study.
Kitten, like tbe dear little thing she was,
was bound to help me out, and when the ball
rang for study hour bad come up stairs, os
tensibly to get her grammar, in reality to see4
If I was all ready and tell me the coast was
"Bay, Kittic!" I cry, jumping out of bed,
"cant you stay up until I get tbe dress on
and see how it looks and fits!"
"Oh, yes," replies Kitten, nervously, "only
hurry, or the old lady will be poking her
nose around and then it will be all up with
"There!" I exclaim, In about two minutes,
"How does it look, Kit J Half decent P
"Splendid !' says Kitten, in a tone of ad
miration. "Who would believe Dell's dress
would tit you so well? Now, I must run, and
you had better go down soon after
and I will try and attract Mrs.
Wagner's attention until I think you are
safely by tho study door, and I won't forget
anything," giving a laugh as she slipped
quickly out of the door and down the stairs
to tho room below. .
I stood with fear and trembling as I thought
of trying to pass tho study door, for the
stairs, as I kuew of old, would creak at every
step; but, summing up courage, I crept
softly down, one by one, and as I got to the
second turn I couldn't stand the noise any
longer. 0 "There is no use in talking," I say,
with a half smile, desperate at last, as I
thought of their horror if they could only
see me now. "I must slide down those ban
isters post t hat door. They would be sure to
bear me if I tried to walk." So, gathering
up my clothes as compactly as possible, I got
on and slid down iu triumph. '
"Now for the outsido door," I thought as I
landed quietly on my feet, feeling blindly ia
the dark. I reached it, opened it gently and
slid out, congratulating myself on having got
thus far successfully. -
The house stood back from tbe road about
200 feet, and after having reached tbe gate
(which had. taken some little time) I ttfll bad
865 feet to traverse to get to the corner
where I had told Charlie to wait forme.
Happening to glance back as I shut the gate
I saw a stream of light from the open front
door which made me drop down on my knees
In a hurry.
Whoever it is," I thought (as the light still
shone out on the midnight darkness bright
and clear) , "they seem bound to stay there all
night. I must try and creep down, for I
don't want to keep Charlie waiting so long."
Moving slowly down the path on my bands
and knees I soon got beyond the range of
light; jumping up quietly l ran down to the
"Hello!" said Charlie, as I came up to him
all out of breath. "Here you are, at last,
bey t I bad about given you up; was afraid
you might have been caught By Jove! but
you are a brick, and I'm awfully glad to
have you go," tucking my hand comfortably
under bis arm. "We will have a good timo,
I guess, providing they don't discover your
flight and come after you."
"Oh, dont you worry," I answer lightly;
"I fixed up a dummy in my bed and Kitten is
going to help keep the old lady off tbe track.1
"How have you fixed it about getting inf
"Oh, Kit is going to tie a string to her fin
ger and lot it hang out of the window, and
when I get back I will glvo it a jerk hard
enough to wake her up and then sho will
come down and let me in. Seer'
"Well, I sayl" gasped Charlie; "you have
got a head, haven't youP .
"It is to be hoped I have," I reply serenely.
"I intend having a good time before I go
home; it's my last night here, you know,"
peeking at him from under my eyebrows to
see what he thinks of such intelligence.
His face falls considerably as I spoak (for
you may know that Charlie and I are ac
knowledged sweethearts). Slipping his arm
around my waist he says tenderly:' "What
am I going to do, Sharley, when you go? I
won't be able to stand it here then."
"Don't begin to get moonshinyf I an
swer, laughing, for although I like him very
much tt dont dampen my joy at leaving very
much to think be will bo left behind.
Then, seeing the genuine pain ou his face, I
say surprised j-: "Why, I didn't know you
cared so much ; I am very sorry, Charlie, but
it cant be helped, you know."
. "Well, I know ouo thing," he says decided
ly; "when I am through college I will make
it my business to take a trip out west and see
if my little sweetheart has forgotten mo."
"I hope you will," I say quietly, putting
my other hand on his arm, "for we are
awfully voung yet to be making love to one
-another; dont you think so? I dou't think it
wise to worry ourselves over such things yet
awhile, . When you are older you may see
some one you will like a great deal better."
Then, as Charlie bursts into a lutirty laugh,
I say reproachfully: "I dont see what you
are laughing at; is it so very funny r
"When I look at your grave faco and listen
to the words of wisdom falling from your
lips, and then thought of th6 lark you are
having uow, it was too much for ma," said
Charue, still Binding broadly. ......
Then, as the ridiculous aspect of the case
struck me, I join in and we laugh together as
only two very foolishly happy young people
' As I stood under tho window that night
about 1 o'clock after Charlie had seen me safely
homo, I gave the string a geutlo pull. Waiting
a few moments and hearing nothing, I pulled
again, this time a little harder. In a few mo
ments the door opened very softly. Hearing
it I creep ui very gently, not daring to whis
per to Kit for fear of being heard.
As wo tread silently up. stairs and get to
the study door, tho white robed figure at my
side says in tho tones that have struck terror
to many a heart:
"Sup into this room. Miss Charlotte,
wish to speak to you.''
It was so entirely unexpected, and I was
already so nervous, that I almost screamed in
Following her into tho dimly lighted study.
I stood before the teacher of our class, the
doctor, and my midnight conductor, Mrs.
" Well," said the old lady, turning to me
with an acidity only such natures as hers
are capable of, "now, we would like an ex
planation of this performance if you please."
At this my ebbing courage began to re
vive. I so cordially detested her that I would
not give her the small satisfaction of seeing
that I was afraid.
"Which particular part is it you wish ex
plained, madam?" I say, quietly.
"You will find out which part, to your
sorrow," she says, her face livid with anger
at my reply, "if you don't answer my ques
"You will excuse me, madam," I say,
boldly, as I begin to realize my position; "I
am going to leave to-morrow that you cant
prevent and consequently your punishment
cant be very severe, so I absolutely refuse to
answer at alL"
Having delivered this bombshell I calmly
await results. There could not have been
more amazement bad a genuine bombshell
exploded in their midst, for nono of us had
ever dared defy Mrs. Wagner before.
' "Maria," said tho doctor quickly to bb
wife, who sat speechless in her chair, "Miss
Baillett ar.d yourself had better retire and
leave Charlotte to me."
"With pleasure," snapped the old lady; "1
hope you will enjoy tho task. As for me, I
1. shall take what punishment I can out of ber
and for bul any of ber girl friends bidding
ber good-by when she takes her departure to
morrow," and, followed closely by tbe teacher,
she left tho room.
"Doctor," I say, turning impetuously to
ward him with my voice full of tears, "can
she keep me from saying good-by to the girls P
"Weil, I dont know really," stammered
tbe doctor; "you know her authority has to
be upheld, and I have nothing to do with her
department; but I will see what I can do,"
be added hastily, as he saw how badly I felt.
Poor doctor 1 I'm afraid bo was a sadly
henpecked old man.
"I do not want to scold you, Sharley," he
continued, "but I would like very much to
Know where you nave been."
"I don't mind telling you so much," I i
fwered, rather shamefacedly. "I went to
tbe ball at tho city hall with Charlie."
"Well, really P began the doctor, in amaze
ment. "It s even worse than I thought."
"Look here, doctor," I say, desperately.
"please don't scold, there's a dear; I'm going
home to-morrow, and you ought to forgive
"Well, well! I suppose I may as well," re
plied the doctor with a half smile; "but if
you were not going home to-morrow (trying
to be stern) you would have to bear the full
penalty of -your offense."
"Thank goodness, I'm going," I mutter
piously as I get up to go, which remark the
doctor evidently heard, as the smile deepened
somewhat as he said good night.
The next morning as I stood ready to eo I
looked around disconsolately, for I felt the
absence of the girls and their loving good-by
Tory much. I bad no idea I would feel so
badly at leaving the place that I hal begun
to consider almost a prison.
I knew they would have said good-by any
way if the old lady had not kept guard over
them all night
' Happening to glance down at my luggage.
which was all piled up ready to be taken to
the depot, I noticed a tiny note tucked in the
strap of my sachet. Pouncing on it eagerly I
opened with trembling fingers and read this
farewell, written by Kitten and signed by all
the girls, Including even a little tot of ten
Dasxixo SoAaus We have beard nearly all
the rumpus and board what the old lady said
she left the study door last night: so, to cut it short.
after she was sound asleep we managed to write
this, and Maria wQl put It where you wOl ace It to
morrow. It's a shame to treat you so, but It's just
like ber. We all love you dearly, and will write to
you when. you are safely home once more. You
know, of course, I couldn't help your being caught.
She came nosing around as usual and disoovered
the dummy, so all was up. Lovingly yours,

So wasn't I tickled to get tbe best of her,

speed and pleasant journey, shouting good
by together as we left the gate. This was all
in full view -of the window where tbe girls
were with Mrs. Wagner. What she thought
of It I never knew; at all events her attempt
to send me borne in disgrace was a failure,
''"Now, Sharlie, here Is your mother's letter

should rn 88 you. Be sure and read it carefully
and try tnd keep out Of mischief until you
get home," was bis parting injunction,
i "All rl ;ht," I answer, as, waving my hand,
we move slowly out of the station.
The rk e was long and tedious, and it was
bite at night when I reached the Kansas City
depot Any one who knows anything about
this city at all knows it is a dangerous place
for a yot ng girl to get in alone, and I fully
expected papa there to meet me. Looking
vainly at ound the waiting room for him, I
conclude 1, on not seeing him, to go, home by
myself. Mamma said in ber letter to take a
back or omnibus, and as I had forgotten

I though-; with dismay of mamma's letter. I
had forgotten the address of their new bouse
and hod surely lost tho letter. Turning to
the man I told my predicament
' "Cant you remember the street P he asked
"Oh, yes," I answered eagerly. "It is
Cherry s- root, and the name is Whorton."
"I guess I. con find it for you," be says,
cheerily, and climbing upon his seat, I am
whirled iway into the darkness. Driving past
the rushing, bustling life of the thorough
fares, we reach the quieter part of the town,
and soon he shouts tho intelligence to me that
this is CI erry street, and to be sure and moke
no mistake, he commenced in a systematic
manner to stop two or three tunes on every
block, ring up tbe people and inquire for
ma. Evory time be was unsuccessful be
would o-ieu the door and say, cheerfully:
"Dont b) discouraged, miss; we will be sure
to find tl em soon." Finally he stopped be
fore a Lirge white house. On ringing the
bell, to his inquiries be was answered in the
affirmatie. ' Listening eagerly I heard him
say: "Tl ere is a young lady in the carriage

"Sharlio," exclaimed mamma (for it was
she), r us dug past the driver and throwing
her arrrs around me as I step out of the
carriage, "where on earth did you come
from, anl where is papa? Ho weut to meet
you two hours ago." By this time my sister,
a cousin and an aunt bad all come out, ex
claiming in horror stricken accents at my
foolishness in taking a carriage.
"Why. I didn't think you wanted me to
come in a common 'bus," I say, with a good
deal of sjoru, "so I took a carriage"
"Oh S lurlio," said mamma., with a groan,
"you will be the death of me yet. That is
just tho reason I wanted you to take an om
nibus, because there would be plenty of com
pany for you, and you would bo safer. But
here wo are keeping the driver standing all
this time." Turning to him she said quietly:
"I feel t b owe you our sincere thanks for
taking sc much trouble for our littlo girl; It
was verj good of you, indeed."
"Well, mum," he said, turning a shade
more red, "you see I have a sister about ber
size, and looks a deal like her, mum," and
stopped, as if that was sufficient explanation.
"Yes,1' answered mamma, pleasantly. "I
hope, if the ever needs it, attention and care,
she will lie as fortunate as my daughter has
been," at id giving him bis fare she fallowed
us into the house.
"That was a very deserving young man,"
remarks mamma, "and 1 can never be thank

guess you will lot me do about as I please,

"Boanling school basnt toned you down
very mu.'h, my dear," she replied, lovingly.
"But now tell us all about everything."
After hearing my account of tho escapade
I was in. and bow often the driver stopped
for me, mamma sat looking at me nearly
speechless. Finally she spoke:
"I thiik it was about time we did bring
you hon e, and as for that young man, tbe
driver, I didn't thank him half enough. I am
very soiry, my darling, you didut leave
school with bettor credit, instead of being

Tbe seeds of intermittent and bilious re
mittent fever germinate and bear evil
fruit. No community has altogether es
caped it. In populous wards of large
cities bad sewage causes it, and in their
suburbs stagnant pools in sunken lots
breed it. There is at once a rem
edy and a means of prevention. Its
name is Hostetter's Stomach Bit

IN this age of adulteration there are few things more difficult to ob
tain of a pure quality than soap. Unfortunately the mischief by
inferior soaps is done before their danger. mature is discovered.
The Ivory Soap is 99 pure, so may be relied upon as entirely
safe to use.
A. WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be " just as good as the ' Ivory ' ; "
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine, sk for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
