BABY'S SECRET. ?
" -'Jfina dear, won't yon come and
play with me?" and little Arthnr gazed
up "wistfully into the delicate, dreamy
face of Iik sisterNina

<*hair, a smile of intense sorrow
breaking over her pallid lips.
"Are you tired of playing alone,
baby?" she asked softly, laying her
small thin hand tenderly on his golden
"Oh, so tired! When will you be
able to play with me again in the garden?
Yon used to be so gay; now you

A few tears trickled down the little
girl's pale cheeks, and she heaved a
' Poor Artie! I wish I could, run

to think of those bright days,
when we ran so joyfully amongst the

words, scarcely grasping their^Si *ifi^
mg, only knowing that she had
changed since those days; the once
- bright rcerry child had' become pale
and" languid, never leaving, without
aid, her chair by the window.
"Shall you be ill long?" he asked in
his sweet childish voice, his innocent

"I do not know, baby dear. I think
soon the pain will leave me," earnestly.
Then we shall be able to play together
in the garden again ?" a ray of
hope filling his mind.
- Nina smiled sorrowfully, and her
?yes wandered towards the pleasant
scene stretching before the open win40W.
"Summer will soon be over, Artie,
and in the autumn there are no flowers
to cut, or bntterflies to chase; even the
birds leave us then for sunnier lands."
Artie's bright loGk faded, and his
rosy lips took a doleful curve,
'Dr. Cliff is very naughty, Sfina, not
to make you well.- Why does he come
here every day if be does not cure
Nina's answer was interrupted by
the entrance of Mrs, Arrol, to whom
Artie ran with outstretched arms.
"What is ir, baby?what has hurt
you?" she asked tenderly, lifting her
cr?n nn tn her knee, as she sank
into a chair beside Nina.
Nina rapidly explained, her words
bringing a troubled light to Mrs. Ar=roFs
eyes, a .bitter pang to her heart,
"Poor Artie! Well, lie cannot want
you more than I; he must hare patience
for a little while. Soon you will be as
strong and well as ever," she said
hopefully, feeling far from believing
w<v<5c qVip nspri to soothe the boy's
grief- " j
She had known for some time the
fatal truth: that her gentle little girl,
hi spite -of all their nursing, would
soon leave them in sorrow; the doctor
had broken the news to her one summer
ere, when Nina, after a long run
?with Artie, had quietly fainted away.
Since then she had grown gradnally

her grief stricken heart; she scarcely
heeded the, doctor's kind consoling
~ words. How could she he resigned,
. r V - ;. when one of her loved children was j
slowly fading from her?
w - She did not notice Artie, with white
-w. troubled face, and wistfui eyes," steal
silently out in the garden; and ior long
the child, walked about, forgetting,
this new *orrow, the interrupted play
with Carlo, his big cherished dog.
Many times after this, Mrs, Arrol
would look at her little boy in silent
wonder; he was so strangely quiet?so
Slowly, one by one, the withered
leaves fell to the ground, each taking
something from j\inas irague mu.
Soon Mr. Arrol, fearing the end

visit to Nina, he stepped i^to p}ie garden,
now no longer gay srkh bright
flowers or the sound of childish

upon a sight which made him pause in
mute amazeueuact. Standing on a chair,
beneath a wide-spreading tree, was

Full of curiosity, Mr. Arrol stepped
"Artie," he began softly, "what are
you doing, ray little man?"
Artie, not having heard his father's
footsteps, started violently, almost
losing his balance on the high chair. The
thread dropped from his hand to
the ground, and he turned a white
cnorod trt TVf?\ AlToL
"What are you doing, Artie?'1 he repeated.
. Gaining courage fir.a the extreme
gentleness of his'father's voice, and the
affectionate gleam in his eyes fixed upon
him, Artie began trembling:
"it is a secret, papa, iou won i
tell, "will you?"
Mr. Arrol smiled at the child's
earnestness; yet the blue eyes were
I very wistful, almost pathetic.
"I promise you, Artie, I will keep
i your secret," he said kindly.
Artie leaped from his high perch,
and standing before his father, gazed
up eagerly into his face.
"Papa, not long ago, I heard Dr.
Cliff tell mamma that when the leaves
had fallen from the trees, Nina would
die too, and I do not want her to go
| away, so to keep the leaves from drop!
ping, I tie them to the branches. It is
difficult, because they are so high?will
you help me, papa?"
Mr. Arrol gulped down a sob which
rose in his throat; the sweet innocent
idea of his little son brought a sudden
wave of sad emotion to his heart
How could he answer that simple
question, and dash all Artie's bright
hones to the irround, by telling ?im
how useless it was, holding nature
thus in check?
" Dear Arthur! Poor little fellow!
Nina will be glad when she hears of
- your lovin<r trust. I will help you "very
willingly, but alas! the task of keeping
back death would be as difficult as
trying to prevent the leaves from falling!
Sec even now, that slight gust of
wind has broken your slender thread?
the loaves arc gone!"
It was true, and with a bitter cry
Artie threw himself into his father's
arms, feeling for the iirst time, the
weight of grief hovering round i:iin.
A* Dr. CliiFhad said, scarce had tl.e
Inst yellow lea-es left the gaunt
branches than Nina's gentle spirit fled
to her happier rest, and Artie has now
only a dim memory to brighten his
lonely young life.

A Fi-uitfal Cause of Domestic Unhairp!lMsa?The
Trying Ortlcal of Fitting
Opera anil Other Fall-Drws Toilets and

a Woman Can Do.
TIIE CHAUITV SYSTEM.
When domestic unhappiuess exi?ts
in a family it generally happens that
the case may be traced to money matters
and to t'h? unequal division of the
common fund-, says thy Louisville
Courier-Journal. Probably eight women
nnt of t; :i who :;ro married and
have no other visible means of support
than a husband are dependent upon
that husband's generosity for every 5
cents they have to spend. The idea of
a husband being generous to his wife
is quite as absurd as it would be for
any other business partner to be generous
to his associate. A widower with
a house full of children has to pay a
good round sum to som.: housekeeper
for attending to the -same duties his
wife performed for Iter board, lodging
nnrl elnthes. He does not yvaillble
when the housekeeper comes for her
salary, nor ask her what she did with
all the money he gave her last month,
nor inquire iu an aggrieved tone of
voice if $30 won't do instead of 810.
No, she has earn6d her money, he respects
her right to it, and he pays her
like a man. Wheu his wife was housekeeper
he paid her like a husband. It
is true he gave her liberal credits at
dry-goods shops, milliners', and drossmakers'.
These privileges constituted
his ideas of feminine b!i>s. \Vh::t need
had she of money? Such a thing as
giving her, or rather sharing with her,,
a portion of the product of his labors
as one of a domestic firm never occur
red to him. He was quite willing to
trust her to keep the honor of his home
and name, to raise his children; but a
doubt as to her business capacity never
crossed his mind. That she would
foolishly waste money if she could get
hold of it was his foregone conc*u.sioo,
although for years she had managed
his home, and with unexampled economy
he is now able to appreciate she
is dead. It is not an uncommon thing
for a woman to have to worry her husband
for 10 cents for car fare to take
her to church. When you sec a woman
carry her "pocket money," a dime
or so, tucked in the palm of her glove,
you may conclude she Las a husband
of this description. For a proud-spirited,
naturally independent woman to
have to Deg, oarg.un, ana nagg;o ior a
few dollars from her iiusl>an<i is one of
the most degrading misfortunes that
can befall her. It is true some women
do not mind
jH^5g^5expIrdn in elaborate detail
the why and wherefore of the demand;
and other women look at the partnership
business in a still broader view,
and do not hesitate to apply for that
which is manifestly their due, but op
posed to these there is a large majority
of wives to whom it is an infernal mortification
to ask, day after day, year
after year, for money from their own
husbands- A friend of mine who has
been married for forty years has to
hurry every morning after her husband
as he leaves the dining-room to try and
get from him money for the dinner's
marketing. This has been going on
during all those years, and if by any
chance she should fail to ran after him
he would quietly march down town
and not leave a cent. It often takes
the greatest tact, courage, patience,
and erectleness to coax from him suf
ficient money to by for herself or her
children the clothes demanded by the
customs of decency find civilization.
It is not possible that a woman, however
forgiving, can feel altogether unresentful
toward such a man. Down
in her lonely heart of hearts she feels
the indignty put upon her. It is all
very well to argue that i a woman has
credit at the stores?and can buy
clothes, shoes, hats, wraps?she has no
need for money. Those who argue
this should just try a dose of such treatment
themselves. Why n ed a body
live if once in a wlii.e they ruar nq?
have ;!je innoccnt pleasure of indulging
in a book or magazine, a bit of
chin aware, a useless odd or end that
will wear its welcome out maybe, but
that is so tempting to buy. A man
may be a miser, but he doesn't feel the
need of it because he has in his pocket
money which he can just take out and
spend for cigars, an orange, lunch,
soda water, or the papers. He is not
like the woman, who, if she wants to
spend 50 ccnts on herself, has to run to
iier nusDana ana asK mm as a jjreut
favor and piece pf generosity to give
hor the pitiful sua. The young wife
who has the courage to demand at the
beginning of her married life a weekly
or monthly allowance of money?which
shall be proportionate to her husband's
income?may be saving herself from a
life-time misery. Any woman who
submits to the charity system?the
board, lodging, and clothing plan?is
as much to be blamed as she is to be

A Dashing: Debutante. ^
A New York debutante, who has
neither riches nor beauty, entered society
with the avowed intention of mak
ing a sensation. One of her mildest
eccentricities is to call men by their
first names immediately upon introduction,
while at several "girl" luncheons
she ]ias monopolized fche entire atteu;
tion of the guests with rhapsodical accounts
of her tremendous success, of
the number of proposals she has had,
and the compliments she had received
?and I fear that one or two more little
incidents like the following will have
the effect of putting a somewhat sudden
stop to her social career. At a
recent private ball she was sitting next
to Mrs. Herman Jones as supper, when
Mr. Danny Fearing brought that lady
an ice. "Oh, I wish I ha.d an ice!"

"May I bring you one?" politely inquired
Mr. Fearing. "Ob, yes; only
bring me twice as much as that Oh,
by the way," she added, turning to
Mrs, Jones, as the surprised man went
off, "you might as well present that
fellow to me; I don't know ^him."
When he returned and the introduction
had taken place she noticed that be had
a bottle of champagne in his hand.
"Oh, I want some of that!" she cried.
"Let me gel you a glass," said Fearing,
moving away. "Oh, never mind
that; I was brought up on the bottle,'7
was the reply. "Hold up your hat in
front of me.v' And seizing the bottle
she put it to her lips and drained a respectable
portion of its cpntents with
the ease and grace of a southside boatman.?

President Enot of Harvard university
in an addrc-rs before the Massachusetts'
Teachers' Association the other
day, said it would be much better for
two or three towns to maintain one
high school adequately equipped, rather
than for each one to maintain a
Aveak and poorly equipped high school.
The only thing that, stands in the way !
of such a union is local jealously, and

THE SUPERINTENDENT AND TEACHES.
We can imagine cases where the
presence of a superintendent in a town
may not be an unmixed 'joy to the
teachers. The only safe basis on which
both the superintendent and teucher
may stand is one of mutual respect,
trust, and kindness. Where there is a
lack of any of these qualities, all parties
fail to secure the benefits which
should arise from such a union.
xne supennienuent, iruui ma puai- ..
tion, is like a watchman on the tower.
He must look afar and read the signs of
the times, not only in events already
happening, but those to come. In one
sense he is a seer, while the teacher
pinned down to her school-room routine
will find her* horizon narepwing, if no
fresh life comes to her from outside

weakness and the lions in the '.v 't is
his business, as veil as pleasure, to be
on the lookout, to glean from the wide
field all those methods and hints that

In no other way can he become so truly
__The true superintendent is not a spy.
i?e takes it lor granted, tuar ms ter.cners
are as much in. earnest as he is; that
they mean to work faithfully, intelligently,
and with reverence. ' His position
being one of greater freedom than
the teacher's, naturally makes of him a
source of supply. The teachers have a
right to look to him for new light and
heip. He need not command but suggest
He need not listen behind closed
doors, or pump small urchins in regard
to the ipner workings of school life.
His own iudffiiient and penetration
"will give him all he has a right to know.
The drift of a teacher's work, the quality
of her spirit, arc not such hard
things after all, to detenu me.
No matter how far wrong a teacher
is, if her mistakes arc pointed out in a
kindly manner, she will lake it kindly
if she deserves to hold her position.
The greatest power of the superintendent
is Lig mqral foi-co. He can
his toanhor under obligations
that are far more binding than all the
commands that can be uttered. Human
nature somehow resents a "You
must," but who can hold out against a
good way winningly presented? This
is not an ideal picture. We are thinking
of ono who is all this, and eyej} more?, to
his teachers! There is that unfailing
courtesy and appreciation, the mark of
the knightly soul, which makes his visits
a help and encouragement. And
often the*few direct words, and the admirable
teaching-exercises given to the
pupils, let in a flood oi lignt in more |
than one dark place.
But the teacher has much to remember
in her relations with the one who is
to be her helper.
First she must take it for granted

can do even if under harsh criticism, is

Third, the teacher must realize that
she is only one wheel in a vast machine,
and that she must do her part well for
the sake of a greater whole. Therefore,

A good deal more might be said on

A Swedish Godiva.
The 2d of February in Sweden is considered
the midwinter day. In the era
of paganism it was a great festival in-'
honor of the heroine Goa or Goja, dei- 1
fied under the name of Disa, to whom
the whole month was consecrated besides.
The legend of Goa is very curious.
It states that one time when the
country was visited by a frightful famine,
the national assembly decided that,
in order to alleviate the general distress,
it would be necessary to put to
death a part of the population, especially.

Aiinec in a Balloon.
' Lot me see. Which shall I tell

in a balloon? XoP Then here -it is.
When the Germans besieged Paris in
18711 had just signed a contract with
Mr. Jim Fisk. I had to go, but was
not able to do so bccause all avenues '
were closely guarded by the enemy.
Then someone suggested goingupin ^
one of the balloons used in transmitting
dispatches, and, there being no s
alternative, I went up. First, when v/e
ascended, the conductor, another lady, *
and I, the balloon went up, up, climb- +
ing up, until we could see Paris like on
eagle could flying high over it.. The *
car of the balloon swung from side to
side, and made me so dizzy. I watched *
the Column Vendome until it tapered
off from ivhat it was to a uoint the size
of my little linger. I saw the cathedral *
Xotre Dame growing from whafit is t
to a ball the size of my fist. I saw'tho 1
people first the size of men, then as 4
small as dolls, and finally iocli like (
black pins stuck in a checker board? j.
By this time I grew quite sick, and fel%
back in .my seat and shut my eyes, and [!J
I thought I was smothered; Oh, so ~
smothered. I tried to breathe and catch kthe
air, vrhich was to me receding, ?
with my mouth and my hands, so, so. '' f
Hereupon Mdlle. Aimee. threw herself 1
back in her easv chair, shut her eyes,
arid clutched with her hands, which
were extended above her head, like the "
proverbial drowning man catching at a |
straw. "Then the balloon began to go
down again and I got my mincl and my
breath back. The conductor said we
were out of danger, and we finally
dropped down in a field and climbed out,
glad enough to be on earth again.?

The Use of a Scarf Pin.
They were playing whist in the
smoker. One of the players wore on
his collar-scarf a diamond pin. It was
very large and brilliant. The inference
was that the wearer was a showy nabob '
or a blackleg. As a partner was shuffling
for a new deal, another remarked:
"That is a fine pin yor. wear!" "Yes," s
replied the man, t'that is a good pin?
for the money. It cost ?3.50. It is
paste. You may wonder why I wear
such a worthless bauble. I wear it for
protection. This is the third one I
have worn, the other two were stolen. ^
Let mc explain. I was traveling on a
southern railway at night. Gradually
the passengers in the car I was in

man was in front of me and one was
behind, and as I- passed out the door,
the jolting of the car gave both an opportURSty
to fall against me. At that
moment one of them snatched the pin,
had no thought of taking anything else.
It is a safeguard, and I would not
travel with valuables in a strange
country without one."?Providence
