"Haiti Who goes there?" my challenge cry,
It rises along the watchful line,
"Kftllef!" I bear a voice reply.

"How do you like her, J ud?'
Young Dr. Galbraithe looked up at
his cousin a moment before answer
ing. "If she were worth a hundred thou
sand I wou'.d marry her to-morrow.
She is a girl that ten years from now
will do honors to even one of a Gali
braithe." Alice was silent, and outside the
open door, in the hall, Carmie had come
all unheard in her slippered feet, but
not unhearinir, and stood silent, also.
She was not vain, so felt a strange de
light in thi man's words, cruel and
heartless as they were ; but she was
proud aud sensitive, and her eyes flash
ed, and something of the svperb power
that Judsoa Galbraithe prophesied for
ten years hence, thrilled her as she
stood there ; theu, nothing but a girl,
she shivered as she thought how easily
she could have been won by this hand
som careless man had she been wealthy
won, but not loved ; and she crept
quietly away, wondering if she could
ever be anything to be proud ot any
thing else but a poor, half-paid school
"Thirty to-day. Ouce I should have
considered myself old at this age, with
the best of life passed and little before
me to enjoy. Uut now I am very hap

Carmie Brownell was looking across
the blue sea waters, her hands resting
upon the railing of the balcony, her
calm, sweet lace grave ana thoughtful.
The climbing vines and roses threw
fluttering leaf-shadows and sunshine
upon her tall, lithe form, and people on
the beach below turned to look at the
unconscious figure a second time.
"Who is she. Leicester?"
"Miss Brownell."
"Is that all there is to say of her ?'
"No, I might talk a day of her and
you would be as little acquainted.
"You are unusually reticent. She
must have incurred your lordship's dis
pleasure, and you punish by ignoring
"We are good friends; but I knew
that your questions were prompted by
idle curiosity; and thought I would
wait until you met her. She has won
a fair fame and considerable wealth, I
believe, by untiring patience and labor.
She has triumphed over every obstacle,
met trouble and disappointment that
would have crushed a woman less
brave, and now, from it all she brings,
instead of a cynical, selfish nature, one
so thoroughly pure that men are made
better for her living."
"She is wealthy, famous, but still un
. "Yes, even an old maid, if you like;
but no one ever thinks of that."
rhilip Leicester frowned, and there
was a ring of displeasure in hi! sweet,
strong voice. It angered him to hear
this cool questioning even from a
friend. Dr. Galbiaithe at his side,
handsome, fascinating, worldly-wise,
and a trifle worldly-wild, turned again
to look at the white-robed figure.
They sauntered back an hour later,
Just as Miss Brownell tightened the
reins over her high-stepping blacks.
"Those are magnificent animals, by
Jove! exclaimed Galbraithe.
"Yes, she handles them perfectly,
too." And Philip's dark eyes flashed,
and a wonderful light swept over his
face with the smile and bow he gave
carmie Brownell. while she gave . a
glance at both, but a smile to only one,
as she dashed by; and the second time
that day the fastidious Judson Gal
braithe turned to look at a woman.
He had quite forgotten her, however,
until he sa w her that evening in a lit
tie crowd in the large drawing room
Philip Leicester was one of the crowd.
and Galbraithe made his way ; toward
them co bo introduced. She rose,
smiling, gracious, thoroughly a lady
with no pretence to girllshness. There
were valley lilies at her belt, valley
lilies in the soft lace at her throat, and
Valley lilies in the loose, low-colled
hair. Her eyes . were clear, brave,
tender; her face one that changed with
every thought, but was ever pure and
The summer passed, as all summers
nave a way ox doing, ana one rugae,
when the Benson was almost ended,
Carmie Brownell stonl upon the
terr ice In the moolignt, listening to
the roar and ixiuan ,of the waters.
Judsn Gulbralthe found her there,
looking like some still, restful picture;
but sIih turned with her old smile as
he asked, . -
"Did you come to escape the crowd r
"No, for had the crowd been here, I
should have staid, I love the . sea bo
much. ' 1 never dance, you know, and
shall not be missed."
I missed you and searched until I
found you dreaming."
Perhaps I am given to dreaming;
but to-night I was thinking of my pist
"Your past, like your present, is good
to remember."
He spoke with a shade of bitterness ;
for what did hers make his own care
less, worldly one appear.
I was only thinking of the starting
poiut. Shall we return V"
'Not unless you wish it, lor I have
wanted to see you alone, but have not
been able to. You must know what
I have to tell, for no man can be with
you without learning to love andrespect
you. My life Is not worthy to offer, but
you can make me what you will. Oh,
Carmie, I love you, I love youl Will
you say that you care for me, and will
be my wife r
His face was pale with the great
passion which thrilled his soul, his eyes
were burning and bright as they search
ed her face for one tender look, and his
hand closed on hers with a tierce, o'er
mastering grasp ; but she was looking
away from his face, beyond the line of
harbor lights, and the very sea itself, as
she said, slowly
"Is it myself or my hundred thou
sand that you would marry ?"
"Yourself I What do I care for your
wealth? Come to me penniless, but
with your love I will work for both.
Only tell me that I can, dearest."
Wait until I repeat your words of
twelve years ago. Let me show you
how well I remember, lou said of
Carmie Brownell, a poor and f ru ndless
girl, Were she worth a hundred thou
sand, I would marry her to-morrow
I am worth it now, and you come say
ing that you love me. Had you said
so then, the girl, Carmie, would have
believed with a faith the woman has
not. I am glad you didn't say this then,
even had you cared for me. You
did me greater service, for, alter hear
ing your opinion of me I crept away,
and after the tirst outbreak I determin
ed to make my life worth living, even
if it might never be 'worthy a Gal
braithe;' and the words that
wounded so cruelly at first proved the
incentive and watchword to something
better tbau I then dared dream. Years
ago I should have considered your of
fer to me to-night the best of all, and
would have thought myself avenged;
but now I am only sorry that any one
should suffer through caring for me."
The sweet, earnest voice was silent;
the waves moaned and sobbed on the
sands below like Bome doomed, hope
less soul, and the music floated out to
them wild and sweet dying in a crash
and wail of anguuh.
"Is there no hope, if you have for
given my foolish, mercenery words?
Oh, Carmie, let me live for you, and
prove my love by that?"
She turned witn a lace as winte as
his in the moonlight, and a look of pain
in her grave eyes; then, very softly,
with a world of saddened tenderness in
her voice
"I am engaged to marry Phillip Le-
ceister; we have caied for each other a
long time."
And then Lecetster s tall form came
upon the terrace. He took Carmie s
hand upon his arm and drew her soft
shawl around her with a proud air of
possession, while Carmie, ever thought
ful for this strong man's passions and
the sorrow that had settled like dark
ness upon him, led rnillip down the
steps and away under the great calm
stars, and the moonlight, to walk in the
glory of perfect love together.
A Fine Distinction.
A young man, whose attire was
clean and neat, and whose general ap
pearance was rather prepossessing,
stood before the bar of a Police Court.
By his side stood a young man of about
the same age, with a coal-black face
and woolly hair, and who was dressed
with all the gorgeousness of a "swell."
What s your name, white man?
asked the Court.
"McFinnigan, sir."
"And yours, my man and brother?
"Gawge Washin'ton Jones, Bah."

How to Keep Monet. Th way
to keep money is to earn it fairly and
honestly. Money so obtained is pretty
certain to abide with its possessor.
But money that is inherited or that In
any way comes without a fair and just
equivalent, is almost certain to go as
it came. The young man who begins
by saving a few dollars a month and
thriftily increasing his store every
cein being a representative of good,
solid work, hoaestly and manfully
done, stands a better chance to spend
the last half of his life inainuenceand
comfort, than he. who. in his haste to
become rich, obtains money by the
dashing populations, or the meant
which abound in the foggv region ly
ing between fair dealing and actual
fraud. Among the widest and most
thrlftvmenof wealth, the current prov
verb is monev cots as it comes. Let
the young make a note of this, and see
that it may long aoiae witn inem.

Little Kate Andrews had long wish
ed to keep a diary. Her elegant Cousin
Maud, from the city, who wore trails
and frizzes, and carried a wonderful
pain'-ed fan and a white parasol trim
med with lace, kept a diary. She used
to sit at her table and write, after
everybody else was in bed. Sometimes
Kate slept w ith her and she would wake
up after her first long nap, and watch
Maud as she wrote. Kate thought she
looked very interesting in her long
white wrapper, her black hair hang
ing over shoulders, and her head sup
norted upon her hand. To sit up in
that way and write In a diary was the
little girl's highest ambition.

she should buy for her after she went
back to the city, the child . answered:
"A diary, please; one juat like yours."
The diary came all right, wrapped
in buff paper, and directed to "Miss
Kate Andrew s, care of J ames Andrews,
Kate was delighted. She meant to
sit up late that very night. Mamma
was going to a party, and it would
be easy to sit up till nine o'clock at
But, for fear something would hap
pen, she thought she would make one
entry in her new book in the afternoon.
So she went to rapa s desk, got pen
ink, and blotter, and sat down in the
desk-chair with her left hand support
ing her head, in imitation of Cousin
But what should she write? Her
mind was perfectly blank the moment
sbe got the pen in her hand. Brother
Ned set at the open window, studying
his grammar lesson.
"Ned, will you please tell me what
folks put in diaries mostly r she
"Events and feelings," said Ned,
Kate wrote across the upper
part of the first page, "Evenz and
Fealings," when she came -to another
"But. Ned. what is events?" she
asked, after a minute.
"Eating your dinner la an event,
said Ned. "And sometimes they . put
good resolutions into their dlanes,
And they write down the bad things
they have done. " ,
Kate became very quiet.
"If eating dinner is an event," she
thought, ' it isn't interesting enough
to put in a diary. I think" Cousin
Maud wrote about the friends who
came to see her, and the books she
read. But I shouldn't '8D036 folks
would want to write it down when
they don't do as ; they ooghfc to; I
want my diary to be rice reading.'
So, under June 1, lbsl, she wrote:
."There is no evenz worth writing
down. When I get time, I Bhall make
up some,' About my1 fealings, 1 haven t
much of any." ( J i It - i ;
In the evening, after Matnma went
to the party, Kate carried the pen and
ink to the nursery. .Nurse, ininmng
she had gone to bed, sat in the kitcheu
gossiping with the cook. , The little
girl established herself at the table and
began to write:
"To-day, a man came and pade me

meeting-hous and a chime of bells. . I

were happy, 'upeshly when I gave my
white Baton dress to a pnr woman wit It
10 children, and bought me a pink ouh
with nice ptuk ruses embroidered -onto
When Kate hud written this much,
she stopped to rest and thick of -some
more events. Under another date, she
wrote t
"I wore a reeth of white roses to-day
maid of purls. A beggir child came,
and I took a rose out of the reeth and
gave it to her, ..The Prince emiled at
me, and called me an angil. ;
I aat under a tree and read a thick
book in .an hour. . Heading is nice."
It took Kato a long time to write all
this. When she had finished she said :
There, that's what I call events.".. .
While she was trying to read over
'Eveuz and Fealiugs," she fell fast
asleep, dropping her pen and making a
big blot on the page. There Mamma
and Papa found her when they came
from the party.
They had a hearty laugh over the
poor little book, and after that when-
ever they spoke of a stilted, unnatural

person, they said : "He reminds me of
Kate's diary." Jr. M. F. Butts, in St.
person, they said : "lie reminds me of

Beautiful Figure.
Two painters were employed to fresco
the walls of a magniucent cathedral ; I

from the nicture. irazinir at it with de-
Haht PnrfT.tlnof whprft Tin wua ha
critically the work of his pencil, until
he had neared the end of the plank on
which he stood. At this critical mo
ment his companion turned suddenly,
and, almost frozen with horror, beheld
his imminent peril; another instant and
the enthusisast would be precipitated
upon the pavement beneath; if he spoke
to him it was certain death If he held
his peace death was equally sure. Sud
denly he regained his presence of mind,
and seizing a wet brusb, fiug it against
the wall, spattering the beautiful pic
ture with unsightly blotches of color
ing. The painter flew forward, and
turned upon his friend with fierce im-1
precations ; but startled at his ghastly
face, he listened to the recital of danger,
looked suddenly over the dread space
below, and with tears of gratitude
blessed the hand that saved him.
So we sometimes get absorbed in
locking upon the pictured of this world,
and, in contemplating them, step back
ward, unconscious of our peril, when
the A lmighty dashes out the beautiful
images, and we spring forward to la
ment their destruction into the out
stretched arms of mercy, and are saved.
Nature's Undertakers.
How often do we hear the query,
"What becomes of all the dead birds?''
The secret of their mysterious disap
pearance was but just bow half told by
the buzz of those brown wings, and the
other half is welcome to any one who
will take the trouble to follow their
lead. The beetle is one of man's incal
culable benefactors. It is his mission
to keep fresh and pure the air we
breathe. He is the sexton that takes
beueath the mold not only the fallen
sparrow, but the mice, me squirrels,
and even much larger creatures that
die in our woods and helds. Beneath
that clump of yarrow I found just what
I expected a small, dead bird and the
grave diggeis were in the midst of
work. Already the rampart of fresh
earth was raised around the body, and
the cavity was growing deeper with
every moment, as the grave-diggers ex.
cavated the turf beneath. Now and
then one would emerge on a tour of in
spection, even rummaging among the
feathers of that silent throat, and
climbing upon the plumy breast to press
down the little body into the deepening
grave. These nature-burials are by no
means rare, and where the listless eye
fails to discover them, the nostrils will
often indicate the way, and to any one
desirous of witnessing the operation,
without the trouble of search, it is only
necessary to place in some convenient
spot of loose earth, the carcass of some
sm ill animal. The most casual observer
could not fall soon to be attracted by
the orange spotted beetles.
Once on a time a Dutchman and a
Frenchman were traveling in Pennsyl
vania, when their horse lost a shoe.
They drove up to a blacksmith's shop,
and no one being in, they proceeded to
the house to inquire. The Frenchman
rapped and called out, "Is de smitty
wittin?" "Shtand back," Bays Hans,
"let me shpeak. Ish der blacksmit's

matrimonial connection, and was on
the point of being arrested, immediate

Into the truth of it. The unfortunate
man tjld tilin the particulars of Mi

would enable him to compound with
his creditors. . After some further con
versation Sir Joshua took leave, telling
the distressed painter he would do
something for him, and when he was
bidding him adieu at the dott he took
him by the hand, and after sqaeezing
it in a friendly manner Hurried off
with that kind of triumph In his heart
which the generous can alone experi
ence, while the astonished artist found
that he had left in hi i hand a check
for one hundred pounds.
