THAT BROWN DRESS.
"I think it's about time I had a new
dress,' said Mrs. Tot rey to her husband
one day, when lie was counting over
the money lie had just brought from
town, where he had sold a load of
wheat. " Suppose you give me one of
those new bills, John. next time you go
to1 town, and let me go with you." The
c maxing smile she gave him failed to have
its desired effect, however. t
" A new dr'es!" exclaimed Mr. Tor
rey, evidently as much surprised as he
had ever t'en in his life. " Why,
Sarah. I thoughit you lhad plenty of
good elOtithes. I don't see what you can
be thinking of when you plan to spend
mone y thse" hard times, on new dresses,
when you have more now than you
know what to do with."
" I don't know what you're thinking
of when you say that." answered Mrs. I
Torrey. I have had just two calico
dresses in a year. I have the enormous I
number of six dress.s, at present. in dif
ferent stalt's of wear. OJte calico is
quite grntl. Twcalicoes are half worn
out. Tkat old brown dress has done I
duty for two years as my good dress, .
a'ld this one"-holding up-a frayed I
sleeve for his inspection-" shows for
itself. I've mended it until there's I
noticing left to mend it with, and it I
won't hold together much longer:"
"Wel, tha*'s only five," said Mr.
" The sixth happens to be a lawn,
which would scarcely be appropriate
for winter wear." :'nswered his
wife. " I've worn that brown dress so
long that I hate the sight of it. No
matter where I go, that has to go, too.
I don't believe the neighbors would
know me if they saw me away from
home with anythilg else on."
" I'm sure I shouldn't care for the
opinion of the neighbors," answered her
husband, loftily. "I always thought
you looked extremely well with that
dress on. It's warm and comfortable,
" Yes, and so is a bl:'nket,"answered
" I don't approve of the practice so
prevalent among some of the farmers'
wives, nowadays, of buying a new
dress every time they take a notion into
their heads that they'd fke one,"said
Mr. Torrey, very impressively, "We've
got to economize if we ever expect to get
out of the present financial difficulties.
If we all bought needless things, the
country'd soon be bankrupt. I don't
suppose you understand it Sarah; but
it's extravagance that has made the
hard times." And Mr. Torrey tried to
look as wise as a professor of political
"Not extravagance on my part," re
sponded his wife, who was not much
impressed with his arguments. "I
want a new dreus because I need one,
and there is no extravagance about it.
I have earned one, I think; but if you
don't think so, you had better keep the
Mrs. Torrey's temper was up. When
ever her husband was in one of his extra
economical moods, be never failed to
rouse her spirit. Sihe knew that she
was a careful, prudent woman, and she
felt that a new dress-and half a dosen
new dresses, for that matter-had been
fully paid for by her economy in little
things during the year.
But if he begrudged her the money,
why, she'd go without, if she had to stay
at home all winter. She wouldn't cosx
him for what rirhtfully ~longed to
her. If his sense of justice wasn't strong
enough to prompt him to do the fair
thing. she'd fall back on the old brown
dres., and make that do for another

"rI know what I'll do," she said, with
a twinkle in her eyes. "I'll wear it
everywhere, and I'll go out every time I
can, and I'll make him as sick of it as I
am. Last winter 1 wore that old gray t
delaine part of the time, but since that
departed this life I'll have to make this t
do double duty."
Next Sunday she came down arrayed
for church in the brown dress.
" I'm sure that looks well enough for c
anybody,'! her husband said. " If you
always have as good clothes you won't a
have any cause for complaint."
Mrs. Torrey frowned, and then she c

knowledge, this is the third season she'

answer, with a little laugh that made
Mr. Torrey tingle to the tips of his toes.

lady, indigmantly. "lf Mr. Torrey were

with a twinkle of triumph in her eye.

A Dse Dathg-Nuseter. L
Our faithful Mend Jet, a potM1
dog, lived with us on the Navesink
Highlands. One summer we had a
bright little fellow who, although not
in the least vicious, yet had a boy's
propensity to destroy and to iniure sad
to inlict pain. Master Willie loved Jet
dearly, and yet he would peralst In to,
turing the patient dog oetrageously,
striking hard blows, punching with
sharp sticks, and pulling hair cruelly.
One summer's afternoon Jet was lying
on the host piass taking a nap, and
Willie came out and assaulted him with
a new carriage whip, which had been
left in the hall. Jet knew the child
ought not to have the whip, so he went
and called the nurse's attention, as he
often did when the children were getting
into mischief or danger. But the girl
did not give heed, as she should have
done, and Willie kept on following Jet
from place to place, plying the lash vig
orously. Finding he was left to deal
with the case himself, Jet quietly laid
the young one on the floor, carefully took
a good grip in the gathers of his little
frock, lifted him clear and pave him a
hearty, sound shaking. Then he took
up the whip, trotted of to the barn with
it, came back, stretched himself out in
the shade, and finished his nap. The
young gentleman did not interfere with
him again, and ever afterward treated
him with great consideration.
Nothing delighted the dog more than
to go into the water with the young
folk, and to see the bathing suits brought
out always put him in the highest
spirits. The children called him "the
htws of the bathing-ground," and so he
was. as he made all hands do just as he
pleased. He would take them in sad
bring them out again, as lie thought fit,
and there was no use in resisting him
as he could master half-a-dozen at once
in the water. Noone could go beyond
certain bounds, either, under penalty of
bcine brought back with more haste
then ceremcny. But,within the proper
limits, lie never tired of helping the
bathers have agood time, frolicking with
them, carrying them on his back, tow
ing them through the water, letting
them dive off his shoulders, and playing
France's Gigantie Scheme.
France is affording fresh proof that
she is one of the most wonderful nations
on the face of the earth. The disasters
of the Franco-Prussian war, and the
payment of five milliards of francs as
the further penalty for entering upon
that war, would have crippled an ordi
nary nation. But France is not an ordi
nary one, and the result is that she has
not only cast off her burden, but con.
I emplates an outlay in internal improve
ments such as the most prosperous
country could alone entertain. It will
be remembered that M. de Freycinet,
the new prime minister of France, be.
fore leaving his old department, drew
up an elaborate report embodying a gi
gantic scheme for the creation, exten
sion and union of railways and canals
throughout the country. The estimated
cost of these improvements is nine mil
liards of francs or $1,800,000,000; but
France is not deterred thereby, and in
twelve years the scheme is to be worked
out in its entirety. Already Fra:ce is
noted for the completeness of her rail
way system, which, with her rivers and
canals, afford a means of communica
tion apparently leaving little to be de
sired; but shie is impressed with the
belief that improvement is possible, and
she is going add 16,000 miles to her rail
ways, and 900 miles to her rivers and
canals. This fresh burst of enterprise
on the part of France can have but one
effect, and that is increased prosperity
in the great industries already stirred
into activity by the demands of India,
America and the colonies. Rumor is
already busy, says our excellent Eng
lish contemporary Capital and Labor,
with the names of English firms about
to contract with the French government,
while the iron and steel trades in
America and Belgium must also benefit.

A large plant, growing from six to

Three factions are said to be contend
ing for the control of Russian policy-
the purely reactionaty or autocratic t
party, the reform party aiming to secure
the most important reforms, anf the so
called new party, desiring only a few
moderate reforms, such as the decentral
ization of the Russian administration.
This party does not seek to have a par
liament, but simply provincial delega
tions with a purification of the civil ser
vice, and the adoption of severe measures
against all destructive agencies. Count
Schouvaloff is the chief supporter of
these views, and his return to office will,
in a measure, depend on them making
them palatable to the Czar.
It is an error to suppose that Chinese
of the wealthier classes make their

you skip over to Mount Stamford, in I
I the Sierra Nevada range, and you will
see, on a high peak, acres and acres of I
snow, piled up in vast drifts that have
a pink tinge to the depth of thilecor four 1
inches. Each of you bring home a hat. t
ful of this red snow, and let me know if
you can what makes the pretty color. I
have heard that very little bits of ani
mals, seen only with the aid of a mi

snow and make it rosy: but then, I've
heard, also, that it is animals even
smaller than these which make the blue

MeLss THIAT "CoAAT."-l)i, you
know that there are mules that coast?
Well, there are, in Ecuador, Southl
America; but they do not coast on
snow, only on slippery hill-sides made
ready for the purpose. The mules are
trained to slide down hill, and the better
they can slide the more valuable they
become for traveling among the moun
tains. When a mule reaches a good
sliding place, he puts his front feet in a
slanting position and his hind feet close
together, the legs bent as if he meant to
lie down. Then off he slides, swaying
his body to suit the curves in the road,
and keeping his balance just right-if
only the rider does not check him.
But if the rider should try to guide or
interfere with his mule, there would
y most likely be a turn-over, with more
bruises than fun.
