A NEEDED REFORM?
Being Also the Story ot a Klre Screen.
. "Plague on that screen 1"
Standing with Mildred Weyman in
?the door of her parlor, you would not
have thought her laugaage too strong*
The room was of fair size, light and
lofty; wood-work heavy paneled oak ;
coiling white; walls a delicate mi?ty
gray, with a green and gilt border;
Window-shades gray, picked ont with
gold, overhung with open white
drapery; oar not a small pattern in green
and. oak ; table-covers to match, and
fnrnitnro that harmonized with the
prevailing tone. The offending screen
showed an impossible dog on a black
velvet .background, bordered by a moie
impossible vino of intensest green,
twiuiug about a orimson column^ lt^
"?Ui?' "Been accounted a masterpiece in its
day, twenty years ago, when her eldest
sister slowly and painfully wrought it.
It had long been an eye-sore to Mildred,
bat the great, empty fire-place looked
even worse, so she was fain to lot it stay,
in default of anything better. She had
thought herself alone when her discon
tent found vent in the emphatic expres
sion I have recorded, but ib reached
another ear, for Will Winston put his
head inside the hall with?
"What are you sweating about,
"I am not swearing, but that horrid
old thing iB enough to make mo do it."
Then, her face brightening,
"O! Will! If you will help mo, 1
can get rid of it entirely."
" What is your notion ?"
"First you must make mo a frame of
smooth plank that will just fit insido
the mantel. Let it come out over tho
edges of the Uro placo nnd then fit it in
a sort of recess about four sizes
"How much is a size ?"
" Something larger than your com
prehension. But como out to tho work
bench. Til show you what I want."
They wore oousins nnd groat friondp,
these yonng folks. Of course tho world
insisted they were something more,
whereat they often laughod honrtily.
Each liked the other bettor than any
one eleoj but Will was quito suro that
his wife mnst not flirt on outranco as
Milly wonld do, and Milly thought Will
tho best fellow in tho world, but bo
dreadfully matter-of fact. They woro
quite agreed that they never could be
lovers, and I think woro sinoero, for
Milly did not mind his seeing hair in
orepe pins, and Will was altogether in
different to the fact that she knew ho
. waxed his muBtaohe. In all joint en
terprises, Milly, in virtue of her quick
cleverness, was engineer, and Will, the
brawny, muscular machine, was won
derfully obedient to her small hands.
She flitted betwixt parlor and work
shop with rule and square, measuring,
planning, and oaloulating, and her ideas
rapidly grew into tangible shape.
"What is the matter, Will r" sho
asked, notioing a decidedly serpentine
mark that should have boon straight.
" 'I want a chaw of torbacker ; and
that's what's the matter with me.'"
"The hateful stuff. It has almost
mined your nerves now. What will
you be by the time you are fifty ?"
V Don't know. It's awfully comfort
ing now. Oould'nt got on without it."
" Awfully disoomfoiting to tho rest of
the world. You tobaocochewera can
have no idea how disagreeable it is for
the girls to talk to you."
"You do suppress it horoically, I
havo nover no en tho least manifestation
of snob a thing."
" After that mcdest speech, let's go
to work again."
"Well, this affair is ready for the
bottom. How must that be $"
V Saw two bits of plonk j two by three
inches ; nail them outside on the lower
corners ; put a strip three inohes wide
ftom one to the other. Put the bottom
an inch from the lower edge of this;
let it slope to the baok to secure drain
44 Drainage ? I don't understand."
44 Do as I tell you. You will in
44 Will you leave this thing its natu
ral color ?"
44 I'd like to stain it oak. As I can't,
Imnat whitewash it."
44 Whitewash rubs off."'
44 Not my sort,'* whioh Was this; und
I recommend it to all in need of tho
nitiolo, from Credit MobUierists down,
or up: Into one .gallon of sweet milk
stir powdered lime till a little thicker
than cream, add a teaonpful of turpen
tine, stir well and apply with a paint
brush, almost equal to whito load.
The "thing" was finished, and loaned
against tho wall, white and staring,
in virtue of three coats..
44 What will she do with it ?" queried
44 Wait and see," was tho sententious
44 Can you get up at day-break to
morrow, and go to the swamp for moss
and ferns ?"
441 reckon so. Ii you will go with
mc. I wouldn't know what you want."
44 All sorts?high, long and creeping.
Any green thing that lives in shade,"
44 All right; you shall have them."
And true enough, Milly was; wakened
boforo sunrise by the call, 44 Hero is
your trash?a whole oart-load," and
running down, was soon able to realize
her ideal screen. Tho bed of the frame
was filled with earth and small" stones.
In it were planted all sorts of fern, tho
toll ones at tho back; thn lnw-r? vowing
next, and the delioate viny creepers
trailing over tho edge, then tho surface
a couple of luxuriant basket-ivies put,
one at each end, and trained to small
nails in the outer board, so as to make
a lovely living frame for tho lovely
living picture. Even prosaic Will was
delighted with the result, while Milly
could have danoed with joy. This
room was her especial pride. Tho
pictures, brackets etc., wore all of hor
choosing. She had an idea of rooms
expressing chaiaoter, and this day, of all
days, wanted hers to show a faultless
taste. She was a sensible girl, though
I cannot affirm that she "had no non
sense about her." Her weakness for
poetry, whioh she wroto of the desper
ately sentimental kind, common with
people of hoalthy, highly-nervons or
ganism. Consequently she was shy of
having it seen, und few of her nearest
friends ever saw it. Will was pro
foundly ignorant upon tho subject. He
oould not understand, yon know. Rural
Quill, Esq., was somowhat a celebrity,
wroto humorous articles that wont the
rounds of tho stato press, and was
hailod wherovc r he went by the same
unquestioned authority, 4,Wit, Scholar,
Patriot, Poet," an?, indeed, ouly missed
being a great man by so many others
having been greater in his peculiar
line. Ho was editor of 44 The Clarion,"
published in Lynosville, a live town, I
Bomo thirty miles away. Some mouths j
ago Milly had sent him, with a letter,
quaintly apologetic for the 4; sin of
rhyme," a poem, beginning?
" Above tho fitful, moaning boa
Tho wild wind? eigh and Bhivor,
O ! Winds! Blow homo my lovo to mo;
I lovo my lovo forever,"
and so on, through a dozen stanzas,
wherein several most heart-breaking
imngos, and nil available rhymes for
Ever, Nover, Quiver, and Shivor, wero
completely used up. Hojiad replied
astmiiug hor that '4 Tho sin of rliyme
is ono not to bo paliated hero, nor par
doned in tho world to como, bub when
one oan wrilo as you do (and that ono a
woman) then 'tis sinful to bo sileut,"
and published her poem as one 44 that
would do credit to tho pages of our
best magazines,'' and the correspond
ence and contributions had gono on,
inoronsing in vigor and intensity until
now. His last, lottor had said, 44 In
such a oftRO I too 4 know no impossible,'
so five o'clock Thursday afternoon will
find me in presence of tho Roto of
Brier Wood," and this was the fatal
Thursday. It was not without trepida
t inn that Bhe confided all tho moment
ous nfiViir to Will and she was relieved
that Iiis only opmmtnji wn?, 44Tako
earn that lie don't get Hcratched. No
roso without a thorn, you, 1 now."
That wns u busy day f.?r Milly. Sho
filled thu house with flowers till Will
declared "the garden had moved in
doors," ransacked the orohard for
choicest fruits and helped the cook get
up many and various dainty supper
dishcg. At 4 o'clock she went to array
herself in the freshest of muslins, and
came down a perfect picture, with her
white draperies and tea roses and helio
trope crowning her brown braids. She
was pardonably proud of her appear
ance. Even Will thought "there
wasn't a girl in the whole oountry who
could hold a oandle to Milly in that
rig." How he liked to tease her, so
now he said: "I know you don't al
low spittoons in the parlor, Milly, but
you'd better have one hunted up. Ill
bet my head your editorial friend chews,
and, with the eccentricity of genius, he
may take your new soroen for a substi
"Horrors 1 What profanation! It
would be unworthy a Feejee' Islander.
No. P.ir ? whoever sJse allows it, my faee
is set against it for all time. But hush;
there he oomes." And sure enough,
punctual to a minute, aoross the lawn
rolled a shining buggy, and from it
alighted the dapper and distingue Rural
Quill. . j K
When Milly reoovered from tho em
barrassed first greeting, she found her
self tete-a-tete with an undersized, mid
dle-aged . person, whoso notioeable
points were a general wrinkled yellow
ness of complexion and a pair of dark,
kindly eyes. He was fluent, courtly,
polished, hone of your self-made men,
but the carefully manufactured article.
Like his lettors, he was extremely
complimentary. Had ho not been a
little less than "all her fancy painted
him," Milly would havo declared him
" splendid;" but nothiug so disposes
to oaptious criticism aB unfulfilled ex
Milly breathed more freely. Supper
was over, and with it all danger of in
terruption. Papa Wey man slept the"
sleep of the tired. Will sat on the
porch, whence he could see and hear
"Tho Mutual Admiration Society."
I don't know what was in his heart.
His mouth wan full o? tob^oon.. J?sw?,?
per" had beenover an hour, and Rural
Quill, Esq., was hard beset with the
peculiar craving toeth-on-edgo sensa
tion born of abstinence and eating,
known to all tobacco-ohowors. He
strove against it valiantly,, bnt who
can mastor the giant, Habit ? Milly
went for the writing-desk to show him
her last poem. She might be away ten
minutes. Ho would quiet his nerves
with a chow. Bat she was not. She
rcorossed tho threshhold nlmo&t before
the precious morsol was settled in place.
There was a very becoming tremor in
the white hand that held toward him
the fairly written sheet, no gave it
back with a most superlative, bow.
Sho must read it to him. Even its
music wonld be enhanced by her lips.
Milly did road it, then wandered on
into a discursive review of her favorite
poets, whioh, I am bound to say,
abounded more in quotations than com
mon seuBe?for woman's memory is
always ahead of her judgment?but was
not wholly destitute of that invaluable
artiole. It was almost a monologue,
and hor wonder grow and increased over
the sudden quenching of editorial bril
liance. Perhaps he was bored, but too
oivil to interrupt her. Sho would
ohango tho subject by a question to
whioh ho must make a direct and
lengthy reply. She began :
"By tho way, Mr. Quill, aro you
ready to give mo that 'critical and ox
hau?tivo analysis' of my poetic powers
which your loiter promised me 'when
" Poor Mr. Quill. Just then he was
neither oritical nor analytical. His
chair was on tho hearth-rug ; between
him and the white draped window sat
Milly, a seeming embodiment of tho
pure, cool room, intently legnrding
him. His mouth was full, yet speak he
mustr Tho screen caught his eyo.
Hero was a way out of his dilemma.
The next moment tobacco juice went
Hplashing ovor moss and fern, and Rural
Quill was himself again, brimming
ovor with facts, fancies, and compli
ments. With them wo havo naught to
do. Milly 1 i.stoned with a decent grace,
but " tho gloss had departed, tho magio
had flown." Indeed, it woro not too
much to say that " tho trail of tho ser
pent was over them all."
Rural Quill, Esq., never came back
to Brier Wood. Milly did ask him to
" call aiain," but so indifferently that
he wisely conoluded to make himself
henceforth " conspicuous by his ab
sence in that region. As they watohod
him on his winding, moon-lit way, Will

intermittent fountain, as Qoethe said,

Thb Crnelty or Monkey?.
An amateur naturalist, writing of the
'fondno3s of crnelty for its own sake ob
servable |n the human speoies, says :
" To refer to the striking similarity of
this passion in man to that which is man
ifested by monkeys, is not, of courso, to
explain its origin ; but I am quite sure
that it is in the monkojs that this ex
planation is to bo sought. Fvery one
knows that thepe animals show tho keen
est delight in wantonly tortnHng othors,
but evory ono does not know how
much trouble an average monkey will
put himself to in order that he may
gratify this taste. One example will
sufllce. A friend who has lived a long
timo in India tolk me that he has not
nnfrcquontly seen monkeys feigning
death, for an hour or two at a time, for
tho express purposo of inducing crows
and other carniverous birds to approach
within grasping distance; and when
ono of tho latter was caught, the do
lighto:! monkey would put it to all kinds
of agonies, of whioh plucking alivo
seomed to bo the favorite. As I am not
aware that any other animal exhibits
this instinct of inflicting pain for its
own sake (tho case of a cat with a

category), T believe, if ?b origin is over

Describing the entry of King Alfonso'
into the capital a correspondent says :.
"All tho traveled -world knows the
saloon of the nrabnssador?, tho govso
ons throne-room of the royal palace at
Madrid. Into this noble apartment tile
procession now -swept. The saloon
glittered with colloaaol mirrors, crystal
chandeliers, marble statues, and fine
pictures. The gorgeous dais of tho
throne roso from the floor by three
bread steps, With golden lions at the
corners, the four paws resting proudly
on marble globes. The throne was a
beautiful struoture of crimson velvet,
enamel and geld. A brilliant throng
gathered round the throne < as the king
sat on it a few moments, and the scene
was very striking. Through the great;
windows opposite a wide view stretched
across the valley to orchards and villas

mountains beyond. The reception be
gan by the Marqnis de Molines, Sonor
Oanovas del Castillo and General Primo
de Rivera standing on the steps of tho
throne'with four of the leading Gran
dees. The king stood on the edge of]
the dais, with his hand on the hilt of
his sword. He was dressed, as he had
been throughout his progress, in an
undress general's uniform, with a sash
and'a few orders. Presentations were
modo by the grand hereditary chamber
lain, attired in a gorgeous court dress.

The "points" of some of the United
States senators are pithily summarized
by a Washington correspondent. Conk
ling is the senatorial Adonis. When he
was in the house the young ladies used
to sit in the galleries and wish they had
a lock of the dear little curl that adorns
his brow, and, as it is thinner now than
it used to be, it is probably even dearer.
It is rather singular that tho three
baohelors of the senate should be the
favorite presiding offloers?Wilson, ex
officio ; Anthony, pro tern,, and Ferry,
of Michigan, in default of either. An
thony is the handsomest; still, it is not
alwayB beauty that wins. Gordon, the
confederate general, is a fine looking,
soldierly fellow. Bayard, of Delaware,
is the third generation of senators in his
family. Frelinghnysen is something of
a swell. Edmunds, his neighbor, is the
most quarrelsome of senators. Thurman
looks and moves like Beeoher. Dorsey
isonly thirty three years eld, the "baby"
of the senate. Cameron is the oldest
senator. Dorsey, Allison and Oglesby
have young and prelty wives. Stewart
and Jones are two poor, impecunious
miners, with only a few millions npieee
?Jones especially, whoso incomo per
month is ?'250,000. Tipton is a fnuny
little fellow, Schurz an admirable speik
er, but Fenton has the most courtly
manners in the senate. Hamlin, of
Maine, always wears a dress coat, nover
an overcoat. Flnnngan, of Flanagan's
Mills, Texas, is a jolly old fellow, who
says "whar" and "thar," and rouses
the eohoes generally when he speaks.
Robertson weara jewelry of fabulous
value?emerald sleeve buttons worth a
fortune, and diamond studs that would
make the idols of ludia jealous.
Duke of Wellington and His Majesty.
Greville says in his Memoirs: " When
the duke of Wellington was at Brighton,
in the winter, ho and the king had a
diHpnto about the army (it was at din
ner) by >ho king saying that the Rus
sians or tho Prussians (E forgot whioh)
j woro the bent infantry in the world.
Tho duke said, ' Exospt your majesty's.'
The king then said the English cavalry
woro tho best, whioh I he duke doniod ;
then that an inferior number of French
rcgimentu would always beat a superior
nnmber of Ecglieh, and in short that
they were not half bo offeotive. The
king was very angry ; the dispute waxed
warm, and ended by his majesty rising
frcm tho laVdn and saying, * Well, it is
not for me to dispute on snob a subject
wilh your grace.' The king iIccb not
liko tho duke, nor does the- duke of
York. This I know from hi a self."
