"Tfcerel I think that's pretty enough for auy body." Aud Lettie McCaslin stepped back from the bed and took a look at her work, having just looped the last bow oa the be wi coning dies of black silk aud grenadine, with its rose-colored vest aud loops and bows, which she in tended to wear at the fancy fair, a few days later. Lettie was "pretty enough for any body" herself, if she had only known it, as she stood with ber Huffy hair tossed back, her bl ight dark eyes spark ling, and the color burning as ciimsou as her ribbons, in her clear dark cheek and sweet lips. "I believe it is just as well made as the dressmaker could have done, and quite a sovereign saved by it too!" she said, delighted with her work. "Now, if pa can only give me the money I'd have had to pay, and I can get a lace parasol lined with rose-color to match my dress and hat, why I'll be pretty tasty, that's all. "They've got fcoine lovely lace para sols at Glenn's; I'll go down there at noon if papa comes home to dinner, and tee what I can do." She heard her father's step in the hall, and went down, three steps at a time to see that dinner was just as he liked it. For Lettie was her father's house keeper, and had learned, even at nine teen years old, that the road to mascu line favor very often lies through a good dinner. Mr. McCaslin was not a ricii man, and it was often owing more to Lettie' good taste and deft fingers than to the things which she bought, that she al ways looked so nicely and stylishly dressed. But she was always sure of means when he was able to afljrd it, so when fihe told him she thought she would need a little more money, he took out his purse and handed her over ten dol lars. "Will that do?" said he. 'Oh, yes, papa. "Ever so many thanks. "That will get a parasol, and leave enough for gloves and fans, too." "Well, make much of it, pet, for besides the housekeeping money, it is really all that I Can epare you this month." "I'll make it do, and much obliged, too." "Then put an extra lump of sugar in my coffee, wiil you? It isn't sweet enough." "On, didn't I fix it right? "Here is the sugar-bowl help your self papa." The coffee was poon right, and as Lettie had a trusty girl iu the kitchen, she did not wait after dinner, but ran up stairs to put on her ueat walking suit. And she was soon tripping down the street as bright and sweet a maid as ever went after a lace parasol with ten dollars in her pocket. On the way bhe passed a tall, fine looking gentlerjan, who raised his hat and seemed much pleased to meet such a fair vision. And the pink in Lettie's cheeks deep ened, and the girlish heart in her bosom iluttereJ faster as she walked on, for Dr. Itichings was well, a very good friend and might be more some day. If it wasn't for that rich, haughty Bell Tracy, with her sweeping robes and costly jewels, Lettie almost knew he would like her. She was aware that his taste was al most faultless, and she hoped much from the pretty costume she meant to wear. She met Bell Tracy just coming out of Glenn's and answered with a good deal of self-possession the somewhat haughty stare and bow with which that young lady greeted her. She spoke herself, as she passed up the shop, to a young lady simply dress ed in mourning, who was standing at the counter looking at some goods. "Poor Ida Martin," she thought. "I wonder if she and her mother manage to keep soul and ho ly together with their needles r "Lace parasols, please." This last to the smiling shopman who came to wait upon her, for Lettie was very well known In the village, and might have been quite popular among the beaux. The pretty parasols of silk, satin and lace, with handles of everv form and material were scattered upon the coun ter beside cer, ana Lettie became so interested in choosing one that she did not see that Dr. Ilichings had entered the store, and stood at the glove coun ter just below her. "Oh, this one is lovely I" "And a perfect match for my suit,' she said, taking up one of the most deli cate lace, its rose-satin lining the very shade of her ribbons, and the handle of coral curiously carved. "What is the price?' "Five dollars, Miss McCaslin the very cheapest article in the house. "I don't uppo3e you could buy any- thing like it for that price in the whole town. "Will you take this one T' The shopman wore his most inviting smiles, and spoke in the blandest of tone, and Lettie was about to say "Yes I will have this one, when she chanced to hear a few words from Ida Martin, who was examining a piece of black good, and speaking to the proprietor of the store close beside her. "1 should like very much to take twelve yards f this," tfald Ida, "but I could not pay for It just yet, "Could you let me owe it for a week?" "The pioprletoi's tone and counte nance both changed. "Against our rules," he said, shaking his head. "Cash sales and small proiits is our motto." "Couldn't do It, miss." "Then I cannot take the dress," said Miss Martin In a disappointed tone. She turned away, and Lettie saw that her eyes were full of tears. Indignant at Mr. Glenn's want of courtesy and kindnesr for he was wealthy and could well afford it Lettie tl ished a glance at him, and 'aid down the parasol she held. Being well acquainted wIVa him, she spoke at once "Did Miss Martiu wish a diess for herself, Mr. Glenn?" "Yes, Miss Lettie." "Then why didn't; you let her have it?" cried Lettie indignantly. Mr, Glenn smiled. "No protlt in such sales, Miss Let tie." "Those parasols p'eise you, do they ?" "Yes, but I shall not purchase here," said Miss Lettie oollj: And as Mr. Glenn Hushed with vexa tion, she walked out, folio we J by Dr. Ilichings, who was a little curious to see what she would do. What she did was to enter Crossley's store, and when he dropped iu a mo ment later, she was purchasing a piece of black cashmere, aud did not appear to notice the tempting stand of para sols displayed close boblde her. Dr. Itichings stepped up and spoke to her this time, and presently managed to call her attention to the parasols. "These are beauties aren't they?-' said he. "Yes," answered Lettie, and the doc tor detected a litt le sigti in her tone, and iiHticed that she did not look at them. "I saw you looking at soine pretty ones at Gleun's a little while ago," he said; "are you going to purchase a new one '(" "I wa?," said Lettie, with a smile, but I've changed my notion now. "Son.e fringe, fur trimming please," she added to the man who whs putting up her order. While the fringe was being selected. Dr. Itichings said "Would you like to take a short ride this afternoon, Miss Lettie?" "Very much," said Lettie. "Then, if you will soon be finished here, my cairiaue is iu front of Glenn's, and I'll drive it down in a moment." "I shall be ready in three minutes," said Lettie. The doctor left her, and when he re turned for her, a moment or two later, she was writing a name upon the par cel wrapped up for her, and the doc tor's quick eye caught the name, "Ida Martin." "The kind little soul!" he thought; but said nothing. "Send these goods to -the address 1 have written," she said, after she had paid her bill. "Now, doctor, I am ready." They had a nice little ride, and were at home in time for supper. Dr. Itichings declined her invitation to come in, but aked if he might Pend her, that eveuing, a slight token of his respect. Lettie consented, wondering what it would be, but not having the least idea. But in the evening there came to hei a long, narrow box, and opening it she found an i exquisite lace parasol, with ruby lining aud coral handle, and with in the box a note in Dr. Itichings' hand, wiich said I was near you this morning, and I know whose kind, tender heart sent Miss Martin her dres, giving up her own wishes to do the kind act. I don't feel afraid to trust my future happi ness in tne keepinir ot the near jzin who could do that. If you will accept, dear Lettie, not only the pretty toy, but the heart and hand of the giver, send me the one word 'Come' by the bearer of this, and in half-an-hour I will be with you, and for ever after your own "It. UICIILNG3." Do we need to say Lettie Bent the magic word ? And do we need to add that when the fancy fair day came, it was a happy girl who leaned upon Dr. Itichings' arm with the pretty lace parasol in her hands, and looked at Ida Martin.so neat and trim in the new dress which had won a true heart. Neighbors. There are many kinds of neighbors. There is the variety which we might call the casual neigh bor; it has nothing special to do, and so is always dropping in to Bee what you are doing; it does not stay long enough to be consecutive or interesting, and comes much too often to be welcome; it breaks the thread of the leUer you are w riting, and scatters the seed of the flower you are planting. Then there is the unavoidable kind; it is continually coming with Invitations to dine, or to tea, or to drive; it is angry if you do not accept them, and deeply hurt if you do not shortly return them. Then there is alio the inevitable or relent less whose coming is like fate, fore told by note or message. This variety usually lives at some distance, and so comes early in the day, puts up its horses, takes off its hat, and settles down with abitof work, lest its thrifty fingers might be idle. For this there is no remedy. You may tlee from the othets sometimes to the fastnesses of the rocky caves, whence no seeking servant can hunt you forth; but here there Is nothing to do but give up your walk or drive, let your paint dry upon the palette, knowing that Just that study of color would have been the best of your life, and sit smiling, and be as pleasant a possible. A real Utopia would be where the neighbors were neither too near nor too distant; their rules of life should be bread and charitable; their hours should be too precious to waste in futile going and coming; and i heir hospitality and comradeship should be unvarying and true. 1 have known some whose com ing was a festival, and their going was a grief. The study of literature nourishes f youth, entertains old utre, aJorns pros I perity, solaces adversity, is delightful at home, andunobtruslve aoroaa. OPIIIOLOQY. Tha Study of Snakes at Smithso nian Institute. An interesting department in natural history at the Smithsonian institute at Washington is thai of ophiology, of which Dr. Yarrow is the head. This society for the diffusion of useful knowledge has collectors in all parts of the world, so that even specimens of all varieties of snakes peculiar to the states, are not wanting to make the col lection complete. The horrible and repulsive have al ways attractions to the most timid. The varied and vast collections of blight plumaged birds will be passed by with a glance aud often without comment, but Bpell bound groups are always to be seen about tne wired cases containing snakes. For months a dusty, dingy case, with a gauze w ire front, stood in a conspicu ous place in the central room of the Smithsonian. It was labeled danger ous. in one corner was coiled a large rattlesnake. A light tap on the wire caused the creature to open its eyep, otherwise it showed no signs of life. There was no food, and the receptacle lor water was as dry as a lime kiln. It had been without food at the time for live months. Its su ikeship under the regimen of such a boarding house, was gradually diminishing in weight, to prove which it was weighed at stated periods. It may be existing on the same diet still. If so, what a pathetic case of cruelty to animals. I may have done Maj. King, the Bergh of Wash- ington, a special service in mentioning this case, but there are other boarding houses about town where the regimen is about as slim as the rattlesnake's, and the S P. C. A. have never been known to interfere i. the interests of the in mates. Snakes are no longer preserved in alcohol in the Smithsonian, it is found that the absorption of the spirits en larges the specimen, and of ten destroys the colors peculiar to it to such a de gree a to render them unrecognizable and valueless. They are fed and cared for while be ing studied. The dangerous ones are chloroformed and plaster casts taken while harmless. When these models are completed they are painted true to nature by an artist who has the origin al ti guide him. Some of these snakes become great favorites among the men in the model room. They come when called from their cages, coiling in an affectionate manner around the arms and necks of their friends. The water snakes enjoy themselves in a large tank tilled with water in tho work room. An adder was taking a bath ;it puffed itself out so that it floated like a rubber ball, frolicking with all the sportive uess of a child. It came out when called, winding up the irm of the man and darting its head iu and out his bug beard. After being regaled cn a frog it went wil lingly back to its cage to digest its dinner. The models are all l ibeled with the name and locality where the original was found and placed in the ophidion collection. In point of repulsiveness the mocca sin bears off the palm. The copperhead is rather an attractive fellow, I should say, as a model, me irriuescent neaa- piece from which its name is derived making a point of color exceedingly ordhetic in its otherwise somber hue. A large case of king snakes have been a great attraction to Smithsonian visitors. They came from Florida, and are the acknowledged conquerors of that lordly monarch, the rattlesnake. They are not so large in girth, but are very powerful. I was present at feed-ing-tima upon one occasion. A sweet sixteen prince (or princess) helped itself to a frog without the permission of one of their gracious majesties, who caught on the same morsel. As neither would yield the point of precedence, the king swallowed the younger member of the rayal family or nearly so for when I leit the tail of the incarcerated snake was still protruding in a vigorous way to the outer world. Dr. Yarrow has been made extreme ly happy by a mother snake presenting the Smithsonian with the surprising progeny of over one hundred snakelets. The event waj especially interesting to students of natural history. The Doctor's researches have brought him in contact :jnh snake both harm less and those whose strings are fatal. I read a number of years ago, when the subject of hydrophobia was being un der general discussion by the press, an article from him, wherein the cure of that teirible malady is set down as pos sible, under certain conditions, of course. A friend of mine has a mad-stone, one of five stones purchased from the natives of India and brought to Vir trinia by his grandfather and uncle in the first years of this century, one or the others is now in possession of two sisters, .the Misses King, of ltichmond, Va. Two are owned by Mrs. Mary K. Tyler and her son, Mr. Edmund Tyler, of Louden Co., va., and one was pur chased by a gentleman who had been bitten by a rattlesnake, and after the application of the stone to the wound was so charmed by tne enect or its use that he raised his offer from $50 to 1500, which was accepted, and it is now in North Carolina in the possession of his family. It is the habit of medical men to jeer at the mere mention of the mad ttone. The families who own them are highly educated, sensible people. A record has been kept of the cures ef fected by these singular substances known as mad-stones, borne out by the sworn affidavits of those relieved. In a country so infested by poiscnous ser pents as India, tt is doing no violence to common sense to believe that nature should produce an antidote where ex ists the danger. The mad-stone in the possession of Mr. Eddie Smith is attractive to the sight, even without a knowledge of its power to am act poisons, it is an inch and a hair in lengtn, oi a aarir, ricn color, between the shades of old ma hogany and ebony. The under side is perfectly flat, the upper is slightly raised. In shape it is oblong, in the thickest part being scarcely a fourth of an inch through. It is very light in weight, and of a porous substance. Without the exception of the amount received for the one sold, the family have never made a dollar from the use of these mad-stones, although they have been applied hundreds of times since they came in possession of the family of the original purchasers. The dis tinguished property of the stone is that when there is poison in the wound it adheres like a leech, drawing up the Mesh as it it were sucked by the lips. When it Is full its suction power be comes lessened. Then it is taken off and washed thoroughly in water, dried by placing it on a warm substance and then applied again until it will adhere no longer. The changes and misfor tunes which war brought to Virginia were shared by this family also, but no want would be to urgent as to cause them to part with the mad-stone. They have ceased to argue in defense of their virtues, becatpe they know it li really invaluable, so that all who come to test its powers are welcomed and relieved without money or price. The Loaded Wagon. We have been into the core fields to gleam with Boaz and Ituth.andl trust that the timid and faint-hearted have been encouraged to partake of the hand fuls which are let fall on purpose for them by the order of our generous Lord. We go to day to the gate of the harvest Held with another object to seethe wagon piled up aloft with many sheaves come creaking forth, making ruts along the fie id. We come with gratitude to God, thanking him for th harvest, blessing him for favorable weather, and praying him to continue the same till the last shjck has been gatheied in, and the husbandmen everywhere shall shout the "Harvest Home." What a picture is a wagon loaded with com, of you and me as loaded with God's mercies I From our cradle up till now every day has added a eheaf of blessing. . What could the Lrd do for us more than he has done? He has daily loaded us with benefits. Let us adore his goodness and yield him a cheerful gratitude. Alast that such a sign should be capable of anoth er reading! Alas! that while God loadeth us with mercy we should lond him with sin! While he continually heapeth on sheaf after sheaf of favor, we also add iniquity unto iniquity till the weight of our sin becomes intolera hie to the Most ilih and he cries out by reason of the burden, saying: "I am pre s led under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves." Be astonish ed, 0 heavens, and be amazed, O earth, that God should speak of being pressed and weighed down! 1 do not read any where so much as half a suggestion that the whole burden of creation is my weight to the Most High. "He t;keth up the isles as a very little thing." Neither sun, nor moon, nor stars, nor all the ponderous orbs which Lis omnipotence has created cost him any labor in their sustenance. The heathen picture Atlas as stooping beneath the globe, but the Eternal God, who bearetli up the pillars of the uni verse, "faintetii not, neither is weary. Nor do 1 find even the most distant apnroach to a suggestion that provi dence f at i trues its (Jo J. He watches both by night aud day; His power goelh forth every moment, lis he who brought forth Mazziroth in his season, and guideth Arcturus with his sons. He beareth up the foundations of the earth! and holdeth the corner stone thereof. He causeth the dav spring to know its place, and setteth a bound to the darkness and the sha dow of death. All tilings are support ed by the power of his hand, and there is nothing without him. Just as a moment's foam subsides into the wave that bears i, and is lost forever, so would the universe depart if the Eter nal God did n t daily sustain it. The ince?s int working has not diminished his strength, nor is there any failing or thought of failing with him. He worketh all things, and when the are wrought they are as nothing tn his sight. But strange, most passing strange, miraculous among miracle, sins burden God, though the world can riot, and iniquity presses the Most High, though the whole weight of providence is as the small dust of the balance. Sin makes God's cieatures unhappy, and shall not the Lord there fore abhor it? God never designed that any creature of his hand should be miserable. He made the creatures on purpose that they should ke glad ; lie gave the birds their song, the fbw ers their perfume, the air its balm. He gave the day the smiling sun and the night its coronet of stars; for he in tended that smiles should be his per petual worship and joy the incense of his praise. "Farm Sermons" by C. II. fipuryeon. Trifling with "Old Frobs." One of the officers of the weather bureau at Washington started off last July on an inspection tour of the weather stations and observers. He took with him a standard barometer with which he in tended to rate other barometers in case they happened to be working incorrect ly. While he was in a barroom at Rochester, N. Y., some one tampered with the regulator, but he had not the slightest suspicion that any thin tr was wrong, and continued through the cir cuit rating other barometers by his own tampered with machine. For weeks, or until the thing was discovered, the observers throughout that part of the country could report nothing but low barometers aud the Washington office could predict nothing but rain.

Within the last week or two the waiters at the summer re sort hotels have deposited their fees and are living on their earnings. This slone should have nearly doubled the amount of capital, in the banks of the cjuntry. The Curious Experience of a Cart. The wonderf ul'vitalityand rap id growth of the German carp has just been singularly shown. About ten da) s ago a inan driving along a road at)out eight miles from New burg had his attention attracted by the flopping of some kind of fish in a mud puddle, not more than three feet in circumfer ence. Getting out of his wagon he picked up what was to him a strange fish, and throwing it in the bottom of his vehicle, proceeded on his way to Newburg. For several days the fish, having teen put into water, apparently none the worse for its jolting, was ex amined by the curious iu Newburg and no ono knew what kind of a fish it was. At last it wad determined that the mondescript should be sent to E. G. Blackford, the New York state fish commissioner, for identification. It was put in a small bait kettle and sent to him. Mr. Blackford receiving it de clared it on sight to be a fine specimen of the leather backed carp. On examin ing his books he found that last No vember Mr. Lewis Beach, a member of congress, had . eceived from Frof. Baird a number of small carp, which had been distributed to persons owning ponds in the neighborhood of the place where this one was found. The fish must certainly have been carried out of some preserve by the late flood, and found a resting place in the puddle by the roadside at the subsidence of the waters. Mr. Blackford at ones placed the carp, which weighed three pounds, in one of his aquaria, in Fulton market, where it is now desporting Itself In the happiest way. From a weight of cer tainly not more than two ounces in last November, in ten months this carp has grown two pounds fourteen ounces. N, Y. Paper. BETWEEN TWO FIRES.

The Bowed Figure on tho Washing ton capttoi. The most wonderful thing about the Washington capitol dome is seldom told. It is said that there was a statue in ancient Egypt, called Memnon, which whispered sweet words of melody to the un as he appeared above the horizon, and sung him to sleep every night with wild, weird lullubies. The grand, haughty goddess of liberty on top of the dome has a heart of bronze, but a good heart for all that, and one filled with true old Virginia courtesy. She has not yet picked up enough courage to do the prima donna act, but every morning the good dame courtesies to the sun, and when he sinks in the west she again crurtesies, but without turn- lg around. Some time tince Archi tect Clark suspended a plummet line from tne interior of the dome, and it was found by actual measurement that the lead swung over a space of 4 Inches, making a total dip out of Ihe perpendicular of o inches. This is caused by the alternate contiaction and expansion of the iron. A ludicrous mistake, which occurred not long fcince, may be mentioned in this connection. The coast survey had incharp;e the sur veying of the river front preparatory to locating the line for the reclamation of the Fotomac flat?. The top of the dome was taken as one point of the survey or's triangle In estimating certain dis unices, aiio caicuiauons tnus ar rived at were found to differ almost every day, and much swearing and Der piexed thinking upon the part of the brilliant engineers were indulged in before the dipping of the dome was brought to mind.

His house is a red roofed cottage, with generous gables and huge, old-fashioned chimneys. At the door stands like a grim sentinel a rugged old juniper tree, scarred and seamed and banded with iron rings to prevent it being torn asunder by wintry storms. Within and without the house bears the imprint of colonial times, and it is surrounded by a wide expame of meadow and moorland whose only gar dener is nature, and which secures the quiet and yields the inspiration desired for a poet s summer home.
