A CHANGE OF MIND.
Miss Dubnrle was flve-nnd-forty yours of ago on the nineteenth of March, IS—, well, no matter what year. And she was stout, anil short, with no visible waist; ami hands that were rod and fat, Instead of white and slender; and features that be longed to no Grecian type or ltoman mold, but seemed to be setting up, sul generis, each on Its own special ac count. with no reference whatever to 'he others. But we have not men tinned the most important fact of all. Miss Du barle had forty thousand dollars of her ow.n. And that was, without doubt, the reason that her relatives sent her pressing invitations to "come and visit them," nnd dispatched cuses of wine tud hampers of game and boxes of new books down to Dubnrle Farm; the little girls worked hideous pin cushions and tidies to decorate her rooms; and young men wrote acros tics for her birthday and everybody listened politely to her speeches, how iver prolix they might be. For a rich ld maid is worth cultivating, and It wasn't at all likely now that Miss Du barle would e>r*r marry. It was a bleak afternoon, the red tnd brown leaves wibrliug round and round in the blast, and the great wood tire upon the hearth sending, every cow and then, spiteful little gushes of smoke into the room where Miss Du- Darle nnd her second cousin and com jauion, Janet Heath, sat together, working roses for a counterpane. "Janet," said Miss Dubnrle, polite ly, "you're a fool!" Janet looked tip with a flush of color an her pale, pretty cheek. She was sot at all unaccustomed to these little romplimentary remarks on the part of Miss Dubarle. "Be a sensible girl," added the elder female. "Give him up, and I'll buy sou a blue silk dress and a black lace ihawl." "But I love him, Miss Dubarle." "Oh, psha-a-aw!" grimaced the spin ster. "Love, indeed! I never was in lover' "And." added Janet, growing more rosy than ever, as she stooped to pick ap her ivory needle, "he says he would be miserable without ine. Don't, please, lie angry. Miss Dubarle; but Indeed, indeed. I must marry him." Miss Dubarle jumped up so suddenly that the dozing blackbird in its cage Uttered a shrill note of consternation. "A'ery well," she said—"very well, (anet Heath, rack your trunk as soon is you please. I can dispense with your services at once. And pack mine first, if you please. Janet Heath." "You are not going away, Miss Du barle?" queried poor Janet, in eou iternatlon. "I'm .going to visit my relatives," laid Miss Dubarle, with pursed-up 'dps. And tiier, little Janet knew that her own fate as far us any worldly id vantages to be derived from her tinslilp to the heiress, was sealed. "Put in the black silk gown, Janet," •aid Miss Dubarle, in a tone us lugu brious as if she were giving orders for her own fuuernl. "Of all sins, I re gard ingratitude as the basest—anil :he China crape scarf-do think that I have nursed a viper to turn and sting me at last! And don't forget my easy dippers—though I don't know either why my corns should be entitled to my more consideration than my poor bruised heart." And then, as Janet Heath began to jry, Miss Dubnrle marched out of the room. "I never could endure the vapors," ald Miss Dubarle. "I'll go to my niece Maria, or maybe I'll make Her bert Smytlie n little bit of a visit; he's always saying how delighted he would be to entertain me In his bach elor quarters. Tlicy both love me, ilthough I haven't done half for them that I have for this little serpent's tooth of a .Tnnet. I dare say she ex pects to be my heiress, but she'll find out her mistake, I guess." And Miss Dubnrle, who allowed no suns to go down upon her wrath, took the first train for New York, nnd slept that night In the fifth story of a mar ble-fronted hotel. "I didn't think I should miss that child Janet so much," she said rather dolefully to herself the next morniug, as she tried to comb out her tangled "bnck-hnlr," nnd nearly strangled her self trying to button up her own boots—"but I don't care! I won't give up to her love-sick whims, nnd 1 will so to see Maria Brooks and Herbert Smytlie. Maria's little girl wrote ine a beautiful letter lust month, and all out of her own head, her mother said. Let me see—Eudocln her name was. Perhaps I'll adopt Eudocln." And Miss Dubarle ordered a carriage and drove to the mansion of Mr. Secor Brook 3, on an aristocratic side street. "TTiey seem to live very nicely." (bought the rich relation. "I didn't know Secor's income justified such style as this." The servant showed Miss Dubarle Into a reception-room, furnished after tfie style of Louis Qulnze. His mis tress was out. but would return pres ently, he explained. •Til wait," suld Miss Dubnrle. A wizened little gltt, with her hair braided In long Chinese plaits, and red, chill-looking elbows, was tinkling sway at the piano. She looked round as the guest entered. "You are Eudfcela, I suppose," said Miss Dubarle, affably. "Yes." said the child. "I'm Eudo ela. And who are you?" "I auj Miss Dubnrle," said the heir ess, graciously. "Yoti have heard your mamma tell about Miss Dubarle, haven't you?" "Oh, yes!" sold Eudoctn, her small flsby eyes lighting up. "You're the eld maid that mamma says Is so out— ub—" "Out of health?" "No; some very big word." "Outrageous?" suggested Miss Du bnrle. somewhat discomfit ted. "No not that outlandish! And you're going to die and leave me all your money and then we are to travel In Europe. But pupa says he don't see but what you're going to hold on forever. What ' Is It you are holding on to, Miss Dubarle?" "Hem!" said Miss Dubarle. "So your mamma's kind enough to con sider me outlandish, Is she?" 'Mamma's going to Invite you to visit us," went ou the unwisely com muuicatlve Eudocla, "when the Fltz- Roy Fortesques are gone. She says she don't want them to be shocked with your Noali's-Ark ways. I had i Noah's Ark once," added the en fant terrible, "with a dog iu it aud Shorn, Ham and Japhet." "I dare say," said Miss Dubarle. checking a strong Inclination to laugh, although she felt herself growing pur ple lu the faet with Indignation. "I think I won't wait any longer, Eudo cla; good-by." And Miss Dubarle shook the dust of the Secor Brooks mansion off her feet. "A pretty hypocrite's nest I should have got into there!" she said, half aloud, as she entered the vehicle she had been wise enough to bid wait. "Janet Heath, with all her faults, was at least frank and truthful enough. Drive to twenty-seven Bachelor Square, coachman!" Twenty-seven Bachelor Square was a tall, brown-stone building, full of studios, officers aud sets of chambers, and Miss Dubnrle was well-ulgh out af breath before she reached a door at Hie very top, ou which a card, neat ly tacked, bore the Inscription, "Her bert Smytlie, Artist." She heat a brisk tatoo on the panels with the handle of her sun umbrella, and a voice answered,— "Come In." But to her amazement, the occupant Df Hie apartment, instead of a young artist In a black velvet painting-robe, was a gritu female, sitting very up right on a gotlilc clialr, with tattered gloves aud a bonnet bent on the side. "Is Mr. Smytlie in?" asked Miss Du barle. "No." answered the stony female; "he ain't. But if you're wise you'll sit down, like me, and wait until he does come in. I s'pose you've come after your bill?" "Have yo?" asked Miss Dubarle, tak ing the first part of the hint, by de positing herself on a sofa. "Yes—for the seventh time. lie owes everybody—Smythe does. I'm Ills laundress, but you can ask the landlord and the wine merchant, and the tailor and the hatter, and—" "Then," curtly observed Miss Du barle, "I should think you were all great fools for trusting him!" "So we lie," said the woman, grim ly; "aud I ain't a denyln' of that, but you see he's kept us on the string all along with stories of his rich cousin, Miss Dubarle, as has made her will In his favor, and is goln' to leave him no end of money." "Oh!" said Miss Dubarle, rubbing her nose vehemently with the end of the sun-umbrella handle. * "He says," added the unconscious trnltoress, "that she's as old as Me thuselah, nnd can't live but a few 'lays, anyhow; but I, for one, don't be lieve a word of It. But you ain't ngoln' be you?" "Yes," said Miss Dubarle, rising. "Please to give him this card when he comes In and tell liirn, If you like, the little conversation we have had." And she was nearly down-stairs be fore the laundress, fitting ou a pair of silver-bowed spectacles, had read the two words inscribed upon the card; — ".Miss Dubarle." The heiress was very silent during her drive back to the hotel. Perhaps she was engaged iu rendering the fun eral rites on her dear departed delu sion! All that she said to herself was contained iu one sentence, — "I don't like being made a fool of," she mentally enunciated, "and I be lieve I've come very near it." Janet Heath sat by the fire In the uext evening's twilight, musing, per chance, half in sadness, half In shy pleasure, when the door clicked on Its iatcli and in walked Miss Dubarle. Janet started to lier feet with a slight cry. v "Don't he alarmed," said Miss Du bnrle, stroking the soft, brown hair with a kindly, reassuring touch. "I've come back to you,, Janet Heath; for I believe, in spite of everything, you are the truest friend I've got, and that you love me, afti" all!" "Indeed, lud'vd, Miss Dubnrle, I do!" sobbed Janet, with her old fool ish trick of tearu. "And so," said Miss Dubarle, "you can marry thai. Harry Dart of yours, and he cnu come here to live, aud we'll ill be a linpuy family together. Untie my bonnet-Strug., . Janet—they've got somehow into a ltr.pt'—nnd make me a cup of tea. These railroads are enough to shake OJJ into a Jelly!" So Miss Dubai : j settled back into the old groove again, and when the let ters from New York came she sent them back unopened. And when Mr. Herbert Smythe nnd the Secor Brooks family arrived in propria personae she obstinately refused to see them. "I won't be bothered!" said Miss Du barle; "Janet's my heiress, and there's :tn end to the matter." And the relatives discovered that they might as we" nttempt to move the Koclt of Gibraltar its to niter Miss Dubnrlo's resolve!— New York News. A Russian chemist has discovered a most powerful anaesthetic, several thousand times more powerful than chloroform. Experiments are being made at St. Petersburg to see if It can not be enclosed in bombs, which would ave the extraordinary effect of anaes thetising Instead of wounding the enemy. VHg CdLUMBIAM, BLOOMSBURG. PA. A SUCCESSFUL EVAHSELIST Rev. W. A. Dunnett, a Man Whose Good Work Is Widely Known—He Relates Events in His Career of General Interest. From the Smith'! Path Itrcord. Throughout Canada, from the wcetern boundary of Ontario to the Atlantio Ocean, there ia no name more widely known in tem perance and evangelietic work than that of the Iter. W. A. Dunnett. Mr. Dunnett bos been the Grand Vice-Councillor of Ontario and Quebec in the Royal Tewplura, and so popular is he among the members of the order that in Montreal there is a Royal Templars council named "Dunnett Counoil" in his honor. For more than ten years Mr. Dunnett has been go ing tVom plaoe to plaoa pursuing his good work, sometimes assisting resident ministers, sometimes conduotlng a series of gospel tem perance meetings independently, but always laboring for the good of his fellows. While in Smith's Falls a few months ago in connection srith his work he dropped into the Uncord office for a little rislt with the editor. During the conversation the Record ventured to remark that his duties entailed an enormous amou nt of hard work. Tothis Mr. Dunnett assented, but added that In his present physical condition he was equal to any amount of hard work. But it was not always to. lie'said, and then he gave the writer the following little per sonal history, with .permission to make it public, lie said that for the past thirteen years he had been greatly troubled with a pain in the region of his heart, from which he was unable to get any relief. At times it was a dull, heavy pain, at others sharp nnd severe. Oftentimes it rendered him unlit for his engagements, and nt all times it made it difficult to more. Ilis trouble was always risible to the public and frequently when conducting service ho would give out and doctors hod to be called ia to attend him. This occurred to him in the Yonge Street Church, Toronto; the Baptist Church, Woodstock, N. B.; the Methodist Church, Carleton Place, Ont.

PRANK IKKLKR, FRBD IKKI.BR, S-U-bt. ' Bxecuior, people in the Franklin Street Congregational Church, at Manchester, N. H. Five doctors had arrived and were in attendance before he regained consciousness. In all these cities and towns the newspapers freely mentioned his affliction at the time. Mr. Dunnett said he had consulted many physicians, though he said, to be entirely fair, he nad any great length of time under treatment by any one doctor because of his itinerant mode of life. In the early part of the summer of 1896, while in Brockville assisting the pastor of the Wall Street Methodist Church in evangelistio services, he was speaking of his trouble to a friend who urged him to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and next day presented him with a dozen boxes. "I took the pills," said Mr. Dunnett, "and I declare to you I am a well man to-day. I used to worry a great deal over the pnin about my heart, but that is all gone now, and I feel like a new man." All this the reverend gentleman told in a simple conversational way, and when it was sug gested that he let it be known, he rather demurred, because, as he put it, " I am almost afraid to say I am cured, and yet there is no man enjoying better health to-day than I do." At that time, at Mr. Dunnett's request, his statement was only published locally, but now writing under the date of Jan. 21sL, from Fitchburg, Muss., where he has been conducting a very suocessful scries of evan gelistic meetings, he says: " I had held back from writing in regard to my health, not be cause I had forgotten, but because it seemed too good to bo true that the old time pain had gone. I cannot say whether it will ever return, hut I can certainly say it has not troubled me for months, and I am in better health than I have been for years. I have gained in flesh, hence in weight. I would prefer not to say anything about my appr titc; like the poor, it is ever with roe. Yes. I attribute my good health to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and you have my consent to use the fact."
