8TN0rsis or OrKNmo CrurrKRS. In a little
tolling village on the B'itlsh coast the Hev. God
frey Hemming was preaching hla Orst sermon to a
new chargo one stormy Sunday morning. A
minute gun at sa told tho story of a vessel on tho
rocks. The minister dismissed the congregation
and Joined a llfe-onat crew In aiding to rescue the
Susengera and crew on the sinking ship. He
rew one half-drowned woman from the waves,
auditie exclaimed:
"Why, Godfrey Hemming, MHyou?"
The vicar started like one shot, and Blood where

KdTtard Lasctllrs, the rector's friend, was abont
to marry Diana Leighion. The woman Hemming
rescued was an adventuress whom Lascelles had
married, but they separated, and he believed her
dead. Tho woman sought out I.ascelles on the eve
of htk-wcddlug and told mm;that bo was still her
husband. 1
IT eight o'clook that

tho little cottage. In

woman opened it, and
surveyed the baronet
with astonishment.

Why Rome People Keep Secret Their Visits
to Nenr York.
Among tho thousands who visit New York
daily there are many who are not in tho least
anxious that their presence shall be known.
Talks with tho clerks of several of the prom
inent hotels show the fact that many people
of social and political prominenco come to
Now York who aro'extremely desirous of ro.
maining unknown save to tho very few with
whom thoir immediato businoss is to bo
At ono hotel the prim little man who looks
after the rooming of guests bristled up at the
suggestion that any person over failed to reg
ister thero or registered under nn assumed
name. The clerk of another hotel did not
scruple to acknowledge that many prominent
people, failed to place their names upon the
register. In this instance tho unregistered
guests wero all society people who did not
care to be deluged with visiting-cards and be
obliged to perform thoir wearisome duties to
society while in tho city on a puroly business
Tho demands of socioty, however, are as
nothing compared with tho impertinent in
quiries of o political constituency, and that
is perhaps and probably tho reason why so
many country lcgislatois aro secrot visitors
to the metropolis.
" Do you have many guests who fail to
register?", was asked of the clerk of a cen
trally located hotel.
" A great many." said the clerk. " Thoy
aro moBtly politicians and particularly coun
try politicians members of the Legislature.
Their visits are usually made during tho ses
sions of that body and aro especially frequent
when somo bill affocting New York interests
is ponding. You see nu, announcement that
' Assemblyman Slocum Johnson, of Way.
back, is registered at Bodloo's ilotol,' at such
a period would result in tho propounding of
puzzling conundrums in that honorable gen
tleman'a district."

walk in unannounced.
Ho found himself in a long, low room, with
great rafters running across the ceiling, and
with on old-fashioned fireplaco which burnt
a big lire.
The door opened and Violet entered. She
looked more beautiful than ever: the color
in her cheeks was bright and full.
Sho came up to tho Baronet with out
stretched hands and ready smile: but ho sow
neither hands nor smile, and rofused to take
the chair she pointed to.
" You won't sit down, Sir Edward ? Well,
this is certainly no place for one used to such
splendor ns is doubtless to be found at Las.
colics Flaco, but we should havo thought it
comfortable if not really elegant, ont in tbo

voice that drove her visitor to desperation,
and made him put a very strong guard ovor
himself. " How wonderful it is that wo
Bhould meet again after so many years of
cruel separation 1 You really ought to bo
overjoyed to see mo, my dear husband.
Indeed, I'm glad to soo you, you know. Well,
and what have you got to say to me to-night?"
Sir Edward stepped up to the tablo and
took from his pocket a leather case. His
hands trembled very much, and his face was
perfectly rigid and pale; but thore was a
strange calmness in his voice when he spoke.
" Iliave got nothing to say to you, save
this," he said : "In this oase you will find
the sum I propose to allow vou every year.
Please to look at it and see if it is right, and
give me o receipt."
She took the case from bis hand and counted
the notes that lay within it. A smile of grati.
iication passed across her faco as sho put tho
case in her breast.
" Ge nerous as ever, Sir Edward," Bhe said.
" This will do very well very well indeed. I
will give you au acknowledgment. Well, and

groaned inwardly as be heard it.

went up tho steps to tho station on tho down
side of tho track, and then sho said: "Oh,

again. Sho forgot one of tho children, who
ambled along under tho window ledgo of tho
ticket ofllco and was checked in on artless
dcslro to promonado down tho car track by
tho man at tho drop-box.
By tho timo she reached the sidowalk sho
missed her offspring, ond, with a shriek
which drow n crowd, sho flew, up tho stairs
and across tho station and snatched tho in
fant violently nway from the guard, as if ho
wero personally responsible for hor fright.
Sho kissed tho baby and then sho slapped it
and boro it away walling.
When sho got across the streot it was just
5.20, nnd sho struokthe usual crowd of weary
business men, who were alf'ready to break
their necks to get tho first train uptown.
Thoy did not got it.
Her shoe was untied and half way up the
Btairs she seated tho children on one step ond
nut her foot up another ond strengthened tho
tmrricodo with tho bundlo and the parasol.
Tho men sworo and pushed and struggled,
but sho mado n good bow-knot anil tucked

When she got to the window of the ticket
office sho laid hor bundles down on tho sill
and began to hunt for hor purso. She went

fore she found It, and then sho opened it and
fumbled through it and finally laid down o
$10 bill.
" Can't chango that, madamol"
" You can't chango $10?"
" Come, hurrv up, please."
" Well. I think you're real disobliging. I
thought I had 10 cents hero, anyway."
Tho train caino thundering into the station
and tho impatient crowd surged forward and
a half dozen enterprising men slapped down
their nickels, grabbed .thoir tickets and got
by ovor her head.
She stopped to glare after them before sho
hunted through tho pocket of her dress skirt
and brought out a little knitted silk purso,
fastened together by two cunning little steel
rings. Thore was a glimmer of coin through
the meshes of tho silk, nnda hopeful gleam
lighted the weary face of tho man in the
ticket ofllco and was reflected by tho waiting
But those cunning little steel rings refused
to part. They wero caught in a thread of tho
silk and sho pulled them nnd poked them and
shook them and hammered them against tho
window ledge.
Sho took out her hat-pin nnd tried to pick
o knot out of the silk oud got red in the face
and looked around to seo if anybody was
laughing at her. She gavo one last vicious
tug, and then she said, plaintively :
r Oh, dear ! isn't this provoking ? Don't
you think you could chango that bill ?"
There was a sudden mad, desperato scram
ble in tho crowd, nnd tho agent said :
"Hero I you'd better step back into the
station and get out your change I"
"Weill" sho said, bridling indignantly
and grabbing at her bundles, and just then
10 cents dropped out of her glove ond rolled
along the ground. '
"There!" sho shrieked, pouncing on it in
triumph. " I know I had 10 cents. I put it
in my glove to have it handy."
Sho snatched hor tickets, left her bundles
on the window, and pushed the children
along in front of her towards tho train.
"Here! Drop your tickets!" called tho
guard as sho sailed by. And the conductor
ad to extricato the lace ruffle of her parasol
from the gate boforo sho got safoly aboard.
Thero 'were no seats, and sho stood on a
man's foot and hung from a strap with a
weary, fainting expression, until somebody
f;ot up and offered her o seat. She hopped
nto It silently, and discovored a friend by
her side.
" Why, my dear! What a relief to see a
friendly face. I have had tho most dreadful
time trying to get this train. I om just ready
to cry. Tho mon aro simply insufforablo at
theso stations. Such pushing and scram
bling, and, of courso, perfectly furious be

at the ticket-office I havo had my clothes
nearly torn off my back, nnd my purse
knocked out of my hands, and tho money
ond everything and signed ' EsfSffo Lascollcs.'
Quito correct eh ?"
Ho took tho bit of paper she gavo him and
placed it in his pocketbook, and went to
wards tho door.
" Aren't you going to shako hands with me
and say good-evening?" 6aid Violet.
Ho turned back slowly, and coming close
to her looked fixedly in her mocking face for
a moment.
" You vile creature I" ho said, in low, clear
tones, that told of long suppressed emotion.
"It would take an eternity of fire to cleanso
my hand if it touched yours. Do you know
how yon havo blasted my llfo and another
life? Do you know what your wiles, you
beautiful fiend, have done for mo?"
Violet stepped back a paco or two and
looked ot him.
"Sir Edward Lascolles, you poor, pitiful
fool I" she said; " ask yourself what yourown
foolishness did for you before you accuse me.
You made your own bed, now Ho on it."
Ho gavo ono deep groan, and hurried from
tho room.
Violet took up n book, wheeled the most
eomfortablo chair she could find towards tbo
fire, and sat down.
" I had him thero," sho said, musingly,
" Poor fool poor fool !"
And for the remainder of that night she
gave him never another thought.
Sir Edward went from the cottage, past the
inn, past the church where the light still
burned in the vestry window, and so on
through the snow and tho wind till ho came
to the park.
It was as wild a winter night as ono could
possibly find, and tho snow lay in great
drifts beneath tho trees and by tlie walls, but
he took no heed, and went straight to tho
gate where ho had met Violot in the after
noon. Thero ho paused for ono moment, and
looked at tho lights in the houso before him.
He stood but a moment, ond then with
something very like a deep sob, ho plunged
again into tho snow.
This time bis path lay through a thick
shrubbery, which led round the lawn to tho
sido of tho house, till at last it terminated by
the conservatory.
He crept stealthily along when he got near
the house, and at hut soreened himself be.
hind a bush close to the conservatory, in
suoh a position that he could see all that
went on within, and yet remain unobserved
He stood for a little whilo by the
scattered all over tho place, and and," sud
denly missing hor bundles, " and my pack,
ages stolen, positively snatched right nway
from me."

One-eyed people who can afford It have two glaia
eyes, one lor day, the other for evening tuo. The
reason for this Is that the pupil of the ejo la smaller
In the day-time than at night, and henco tho two
glaas eyes are of different sizes, bo as to correspond
with the natural eye.
The price of glsaa eyes Is becoming cheaper on
account of competition, and nt the same time the
quality la better than hitherto. A common glass
eye may tie had for $10. hut they are not a good
Imitation and do not last long, A first-class eye
costs ISO, or even more. Tne best will not last
over two years, because tho secretions In tho hoi
low of the eye roughen the glass by chemical ac
tion, and this roughness Irritates the flesh. A glass
eye, like false teeth, Is taken ont nt night, lor It
would not he sate to go to alcep with It Initio cav
ity. It might drop oat, and the alighteat fall would
break It.
If a person could buy glass eyes at wholesale,
by the gross, he could get them for about it apiece,
lint he would havo to look over a grest msny be
fore finding ono to Ot and to match his other eye in
alzc, color and expression. llUss eyes are all
made abroad, principally In Germany aud ITnnre,
no factory having been atirtcd here, although
there rs a great demand for them In this country.
A glass eye Is not made after the ahapeora
natural eye, becauee when the latter Is taken from
the cavity the tlasue Just hack of It puam s forward
and leaves but little space. Tho falsa cyo la,
therefore, elliptical In ahupe. The outer side pre
sence the natural form, but tnolnncrsldo Is nearly
flat with rounded edges. It la allghily larger than
trio natural eye, so that when Inserted lit t no cav
ity It may not slip out. At flrat It Irritates the eye
lids and tho tlsme back of tho cavity, but the
wearer grows accustomed to It and Qnua It a rest
and a protection.
A skillful oculist can put a glass-eye Into the
cavity au that very clouc observation Is neccsary
to delect It. Not only aro the alzo and color of the
natural eyo counterfeited, but even the general
ejtprtsilon. Tne oculist has jet to discover means
of giving that sympathetic movement wtilon dls
tlugulshoa a pair of eyes. There Is quite a large
number of people with glass eyes, say one In 4(o.
You would not know It by casual observation, for
tho wearer of a glass-eye Is ao sensitive on tho sub.
Ject that he Is careful of his actions In public, and
he becomes so accustomed to the glass orb that he
can prevenSjall but Intlmato friends from dticuver

Story of nn Kmbroldrrrd Drop-CurtaJn.
Iron (At rXlladttpMa Vren.
The famous drop-curtain of the Madison Square
Theatre, made six years ago, was the first work
excouted by a group of wemen in New York, whose
subsequent efforts have placed on a firm founda
tion what deserves to he called the only distinc
tively American School of Art In the country. Home
day the great American novel may materialize:
some day vto may havo an American School of
Painting or of Music. Somo day we may not look
to Europe for art culture in any lino. Mosntlmo
tho Associated Artists of Now York have estab
lished a School of Embroidery, whoso work Is aa
characteristic or Its time and founded on as en
during art principles as were the old Oohellns tap
estries. Tut exhibition of American tapestries In
progress for the post fortnight at the rooms of the
society has demonstrated aialn the fact that as
beautiful drapery, upholstery and wall hanging
fabrics are being produced In tbla country as are
made In the world to-day. Mrs. Candaco
heeler Is the head of the Society of Asso
ciated Artists. She Is a sister of Mrs. Jeannette
Thurber, of American opera fame, and the
mother of Dora Wheeler, an artist ot exceptional
powers, Mrs. Wheeler Is an exquisitely pretty
woman, who looks quite as much like her daugh
ter's elder slater as her mother, and has a thor
oughly feminine charm. She Is a woman of busi
ness sense also, and the affaire of the society have
been managed with skill and discretion. She has
pushed embroidery further and In a more Inde
pendent direction than any other art in the country,
ins been a very apostle to teach self-help lo young
women and hss made considerable money withal,
by her Inventions of new methods In tapestry ana
of artistic fabrics and dyes.
The Art of Lining tho Face.
irrom Chambiri't Journal,
Thesrtot "lining" tho face to simulate the
wrinkles of age Is one very Imperfectly understood.
Frequently does the amateur performer draw a
abyrlnthlne meshwork of thin, dark lines, which
only convey the effect of n dirty face when seen
upon the stage. The point to decide Is rather how
few than how many wrlnkloa to mark upon the
face. A few broad touches partaking more of tho
nature of shadows than of mcro lines will often
give an effect which would bo destroyed by
any attempt at a more minute treatme t.
Tho lines should be mado with dark
red, not black. An ordinary water-color cake and
a small brush are tho Implements needed. The
natural wrlnklts of the faco will afford the best
guide to where the artificial ones are to bo painted,
althougn, of oourse. they must be varied according
to the character to be represented. For example,
in marking the "crows' feet ' In the outer corners
of the eyes a Jovial expression Is given by drawing
the lines downward and a serious or mournful ex

Hud Not Heard It.
From lh4 Kaniai CUy .Toiirnaf,
"Have you heard the latest 7" asked smlthers of
Jones, who had dropped In during the evening at
the Smlthers mansion.
" No," replied Jones eagerly; "what la It t
"There It Is," returned Smlthers gloomily, as a
loud wall was heard from the nurBcry. " You hear
It now. It's another boy, and, by George, he has
got a pair of lungsl"
windows; but at last ho turned away and
passed on through the shrubbery to tho lawn,
and so to the park.
When ho reached tho littlo gato, he looked
back longingly at the lighted windows.
"Good-by, sweetheart good-by 1" ho said.
"I can't make it out, Arabella. It's some
thing that's perfectly incomprehensible to
me. I've thought it over for the last threo
weeks or so and I can't mako it out. It's
perfectly Incomprohenaiblo."
Miss bplcor sat by the Uro knitting.
It was evening, and she and Miss Arabollo
had been to evensong and got back again,
and now thoy were discussing something
which they had not failed to discuss at fiiy
moment since tho something happened.
'Perfectly incomprehensible," repeated
Miss Arabella.
"I saw him," said Miss Spicer. in tones of
chaste horror and maidenly resentment. "I
saw him him, a clergyman, actually kiss
that woman!"
"Pleaso, 'm," said Jane, popping hor round
face within tho door, " thero's Nancy Wood
wants to seo you."
"Nancy Wood!" cried Miss Bpicor.
"Goodness gracious, Arabella! It's witli
Nancy Wood that that female lodges. Show
Nancv in, Jane, immediately I"
So Jane fetches Nanoy in, and Nancy, with
a clouded countenance sits down in tho
presence of MIbh Spicer and Miss Arabella
Spicer, and having heaved a deep sigh, pro
pares to be interrogated.
" Well, Nancy," says Miss Spicer, in her
most urbane ruannor," how nro you to-day ?"
Nancy sniffs, looks round tho room villi
much, contempt, and shrugs her shoulders.
" I'm no better thou I should be, MIbs
Arrybelia," sho says, totally ignoring the
presence of Miss bpiccr ; " thanks to you,
marm. all the some. Poor folk don't havo
no call to be in good health, especially with
such a husband as I've got, and no luxuries,
and forced to bo teetotallers, wbothcr or no."
" Will you tako a glass of alo, Nancy f"
says she.
" I shouldn't have no objections. Miss
Spicer and Miss Arrybelia," answers Nanoy.
"I alius did say that your ale were better
than any in Elmsea ; and I'm that faint with
toilin' up the cliff that an odd glasa'll do me
So Nanoy Is supplied with ale and plum
cake; and presently, when she is consider,
ably mollified, Miss Spicer begins the deli
cate task of Interrogation.
Tbe Tnst Volume, of llmlness Hnndlcd Now
Compared tvltti I'lliy Ycnra Ago.
t.Ww Tor Ltltrr to Hartford rVmo.l
I havo taken the trouble to compare the business
of to-day with that of the early days of our orrlce;
the result la startling. Statistics are somewhat
dry as a rule, but whoever will take tho trouble to
think aa he runs oter tfc following figures win
And room for astonishment. From the official re
port I find that dutlng the year ending Dec 81,
lsso, tho total number of pieces (tellers, cards,
newspapers) of mall matter delivered from tho New
York omeca was 3,S3.1,M3; the total of pieces re
ceived In thce oritces and forwarded was
S24,s,M,4Sl. Tho handling of thla mass of matter
required MS, Too lock pouches and v,w;,293 sacks ;
the average number of pouches, sacks, and cases
passing Itirouuh the odlco d illy, was 11, m. The
money paid out aud received In the money order
department of tbe ma ti office and lis tutor n branch
ottltea amounted lo tn,SM,tc. The expense of
running the New York poit-onice was tl,0i5,4!)T
and l tie receipts fl,MH,SM, gltiug a nn revenue or
U,m.bV 'lho number of einplojcis was if.OK).
Dutlng tho year fourteen mall wagons earned
lit loads of mull matter between the railroads and
the malti onlce; th averano daily number of
wagons from business and publication onlcea de
livering mall In bulk at the main offlco was v!4.
Thero aro elgutcen forrlgn mails despatched every
week, ono mall frequently requiring Irutii
seven to nlno two-horse trucks. Beside the
fifteen branoh offices, New York has 1,B8H
street letter boxes, from which collections
are made twenty-six tunes a day In the most
crowded parts of thooty. In lvi tho offices sold
lftft,Sfo,ihJ stumps, tt,4.i,lf0 stamped envelope,
ami 41, iws.fsu poa.ul cards. Tnclvu hundred pub
lications are malted tu their subscribers from tne
New York office, aggregating 14,Uuutnuaof mall
matter. Tne total weight of mails received and
de-patched dally from the Now York olTlccs was
l:i,Sj totiB, Blionlni; an lucrca.e of 4H percent,
since lnM, when tho dally weight was ISO tons.
This la an cxiruordlit iry buslucss as compired
with that of Jlfty years ago. Tho cmrahlo
Charles Forrester, now dead, who wus connected
wlih the New York office lor more than half a cen
tury, was u mine of Information concerning tboie
early days, and I find In many of my nute books of
leu jenrsutro records of talks held with him and
flloii away for fiiimo use. In lH.u tho New rork
l'oatma.ter v. as named Bailey. He lHrd over the
office and boarded the clerks In his family it was
hla habit to go down Into the orrlce aboiu I o'clock
i very morning lu hla dressing-gown to see that all
wasgolug well, returnlug upstairs for breakfast.
Tho worklug force consisted ot seven clerks. lu
lSi.l one of tne clirkx, William Coleman,
who had chsrgoof the distribution of newspapers
received by mall, resigned and opened a sta
tioner's shop. As none ot the remaining clerks
was lamlllar nil n the work of sorting the novrs
Pairs, youug Forrester's tint duty was to take
the entire newspaper mall under his arm every
day aud carry It lu Coleman's office In order that
the ex-clerk might sort It. The six carrltraof the
office In lsi.1 received two cents for each letter
delivered and ono cent for each newspaper;
they would required to bo at tbo office
every morning at 6 ok lock to do -tho work
of sorting letters. What was known as the "north
mall" wasacut aa far as Aluany by a line ot four
horse stages, with relays every right miles; the
Btart was from the old Merchants' Hotel InCort
landt street. "Admiral" Heealde had the con
tract for carrying the man between heie and Bos

blowing a coach horn. It took two daya to send a

four men besides tho train crew on tho car. Tho
paymaster and his assistants go heavily armed, and
it would bo a hard matter for anybody to rob tho

The paymaster couuta the money out before them
and they sign the roll In bis prraence. J. II. Fred

Cnrloua Pets the Crane,
From (As Jlotton Jlrrald.
Curious pets are the fasmonablo craze. A plons
np and oown cat and dog no longer aatlafy
maaame. She must have aome other creature on
four legs, or without any legs at all, to amuse her
and agitate her nervous visitors. Mrs. Langtry
"So you've got a lodgor, now, Nancy?'
she says.
" And it's not my fault that I haven't," ro.
plies Nancy, with a long pull at tho alo.
''Tearing round o' nights, nnd talking to
strongo mon. and 'avin' 'cm como to seo her,
prouuskuR.liko, whan sho's all alone and
them parsons, too. I Bay it's scandalous,
Miss Arrybelia!"
" And is all that true. Nancy?" says Miss
" Which I should never ha' believed it of
tho sect, marm," says Nancy. " Uoin' a
woman myself, and knowin' what's what, and
mo married, too, if I hadn't ha seen it all
with own eyes."
"Toll us all about it, Nancy," says Miss
And as Nancy is a woman, and. moreover,
as her heart is warmed with Miss Spicer's
good ale, she docs not tell all about it.
When Nancy went forth sho was in a happy
state of mind. MIbs Spicer's ale wns good,
and Bhe had had thrco glasses of it. Miss Ara
bella's cako was nlso good, and sho had had
two thick slices thereof.
So sho tripped nimbly along tho road by
tho odgo of tho cliffs, ruminating over her
evening's experiences and thinking about her
lodger und tho now parson.
" Don't toll mo," Bho said, thinking aloud ;
"I knows. He don't come there for nothing,
or my uatno isn't Hannah Wood. No, my lino
ladv; you've something to offer him whtnhe
gets thero, I'll bo bouud. Gent's doesn't go to
sco ladles without a reason. Oh, no x and
him o parson. Oh, dear oh dear I it's n
wicked world it's a wicked world! And
now. who'd ha' thought o' this? Well, laws-a-massy,
but I never did !"
And Nancy started back, and stood quito
motionless at a Bight which had met her
wondoring gaze on turning tho comer of a
grove of trees.
Thero stood tho very persons of whom sho
bad been thinking,
Ho was explaining all his viows, all his
aims; telling hor what had transpired sinco
tho timo when ho, an Oxford uudergraduato,
had first mot her and her father and fallen
madly in lovo with her golden hair and blue
eyes and believed himself loved in return,
Sho was tolling him how, with her father,
she had left England and gono to India, whore
her father had died, and now she had come
baok to England with enough money to live
comfortably on, but with no friends no
work to do.
"I am rich, Godfrey," she said, "and tho
