"Twelve times eight equal what? No, that is not right; and I didn't hear it very well. St;.nd a little closer to the trans mitter, James. Now, begin again, clearly. You speak very badly." Once more the scholar in the snow-blockaded farm house runs through his tables, while his teacher, four miles away, keeps enforcing that precise enuncia tion which makes telenhone con- versation a pleasure to listen to."i The spread of the lines of the energetic Bell companies into the most remote regions has pre vented, in many districts, the cessation of educational activity whenever a white blizzard sweeps across the land. If children can not attend school, why not still assign them then- regular work and hear their lessons over the telephone? A characteristic , instance of this practice, which is growing up in rural districts is reported by the Bell Telephone Company in a North Dakota town. When the weather is severe, the teacher goes to the telephone and calls up the home of each pupil, noti fying him that the school house will not be open that day and an nouncing that studies will oegin. Where there are several pupils in one home, extra receiver.; have been provided. Tried in an experimental way in the winter of 1905, the plan proved to be a great success. Reading, spelling and grammar are taught readily, and problems in arithmetic and algebra are solved on individual blackboards. When it is remembered that the children recite by the side of a comfortable fire, that there is no wading through drifts waist high, the saving in doctors' bills and human life is apparent.

Frauletn Pauline Von Engelruhe flitted about bar dainty room, hum mini a snatch of song; now aho paas ed to arrange a dish of violets, now to give her bair a eoquetUah little twist now to cblro softly to ber bird. Frauleln Pauline's aewlng girl bent her bead over the skirt aba was alter Inc. but not one of these careleas graceful movements escaped her, and her whole aoul waa filled with longing and discontent. The frauleln waa a young German lady visiting some American relatives; she waa rich, she waa loved and admired and made much of, ahe could flit In her dainty clothee and talk to her bird. The sew ing girl stitched away fiercely. By and by Frauleln Pauline took up a book, but her lovely eyes wandered. Tbey studied the dark face of the girl bent over her work, noted the aaiiow akin, the tired droop of the shoulders, the beavy frown. Preaently a soft hand was laid on the nervoua fingers that held the needle, ajid a genu votoe aald: "My dear. tll me what It la that troubles you!" The girl looked up with startled eyes, then suddenly sne oum wu fears. "Oh, frauleln, I bate to be poor! hate It so! It Is always work sad work and work, and I have no pretty dresses and no pleasure! I am ugly and poor and I hate everything!" 'Poor child, poor child!" said rran- lekn Pauline, thoughfully. "Yoa arc ytaing. and have nothing, and you are thf uklng that I, too, am young and hi ve everything, am pretty and rica, auoil admired Is It not ao?" My child, do you think rich people have everything they wish for?" she said, softly. "1 will tell you a little at 11 y. Far away In a German city, at one of tbe great music concerts, an ar tla and a young girl were Introduced to each other. These two met many tlm thereafter, and lire waa very beauUftit to them. Then came a change. The man's eyes could M larger hide the love that lay behind thx-m, but lie did not speak. The girl wttM an heiress, and he feared to be ra llod a fortune hunter. She was alao well born, and he was but a poor American: her wealthy relatives look' od askance at him. He knew that be wi not a fitting mutch for ber. The lif did not want a fitting match; ant wauled a mate. Hut, aca! she could not ppeak. she could only wait The sewing girl ventured to lay huud tenderly on the bowed head; her eyes were filled with gentle tears. "Did you never see him again?" she asked softly. Tbe other girl lifted her face "Never nealn." she said, quietly. "It is nearly two years ago now. I ana too young not to find Joy In my friends. my flowers and my birds, my books and traveling, but the best thing la Ufa I have missed, because I am rich! And now I want you to have a boll day thla afternoon. It Is a beautiful spring day, and you need some fresh air. I want you to walk In the park. The aklrt can wait until to-morrow.' The girl glanced dubiously at largo bundle that she had brought with her. "Those are vests." she aald. "My sister sews them, and I must liver them at the tailor shop this afternoon. It Is away up on East Thirtieth street." "I will deliver them myself." said Frauleln Pauline, ber natural gaiety breaking forth In delicious smiles. "Oh, no, not you yourself- Tbey are very heavy, and they make an ugly bundle. Perhaps you could send some oner "No; I shall play that I am a vest maker taking home my week's work. I wish to see how it feels. It will be large fun." Frauleln Pauline did not takt a car. She was a good walker,, and Thirtieth street did not seem far 08; nevertheless the vests were so heavy that before ahe reached her destina tion she grew very tired. She glanced wearily up the street, and suddenly her cheeks grew white, then pink. A man waa coming directly to ward her a tall, brown-eyed man with dark hair curling upward under all straw hat He bent upon her aa face. "Paul Frauleln Pauline! Ass I dreaming that I see you here?" aw as- claimed. The frauleln stretched out to aha ber left hand. "No, Herr Weatcott, it la only me, and not a dream at aft Ach. It Is good to see you again. I -would give you both hands, but jroa see the other la occupied. Herr Westcott dropped the little hand he waa holding. Certainly his greeting had been too Impulsive, and his eyea saddened. "May I walk with you?" he asked. courteously. "I shall be glad. I ehould Ilk to talk of home; It seems so long since I left Ich habe helmweb. You have not forgotten the dear old city and the pleeaant little garden of The Lions?" "Forgotten!" Frauleln Pauline waa quite satisfied with tbe tone. "Those were nappy days," aba con- tinned. "Of coarse, you were accus tomed to gayer pleasures, and they could not have been such happy days to you. It la not to be expected. But yon left as without saying Anf WeldeTMha!" 1 was obliged to leave harrledly, frauleln, and surely yoa must know that those were happy days la so, Frauleln Pauline shifted the bundle oa her arm, and Herr Weatcott waa overwhelmed with contrition. He bad forgotten bis manners. "Ob, J beg ypur pardon! Let me have your bundle! Forgive me that I did not think or It sooner! You must be very tired!" "Yes. I am very tired." 'Frauleln Pauline glanced down at the bundle, and sighed deeply. 'They are vests that 1 am taking to the tailor ahop. It la a long way from where I live, and the ahop Is on Thirtieth street" Herr Westcott started. He noted for the first time the contents of the bundle, the plain black bat the sim ple gown. A light broke In upon him. be stopped, stared fixedly at the de mure fare and downcaat eyes, then he lifted the bundle, and looked at It In dismay. "You to carry such a long way! Ia It possible, that all your wealth la gone, aud that you are sewing vests for a llvlnur "It docs not pay well, but It Is hon est work," said Frauleln Pauline, plain tively. "Great beaveas! It Is monstrous! I could not have believed It possible! Was there no one to look after you? Forgive me for speaking so, but I have always been Interested la your welfare, and surely you will pardon a friend for bis frankness. Tree sympathy la never out of place, Herr Westcott. Ach, strange thing's are possible. Dut you must know that my wealth waa never the greatest thing to me. Not that It Is very plcuwant to bo poor." "Of that I am well aware, therefore "Ich liebe dich!" She 8aid, Simply I deplore it for your sake; but ror my own sake " "Here we are at the tailor shop!" " "rrrr :rr; 'It.: T . I AS . . M I a uu tv saa wait w ahuwu deliver the vests. I shall appear again directly." In a very tew moments they were proceeding on their way, minus the vests. Frauleln Pauline held In her hand a five-dollar bill. "A week's sal ary!" she said, viewing It meditatively. Suddenly a hand closed over the bill and the. fingers that held it. "Pauline, at last! may speak! I had no right to before, but now you are poor, poor, and I cannot feel sorry, because I am so glad. Pauline, dear one, do you guess how I have loved you always from tbe very first? Sometimes I have thought that you cared. I dared not let myself dwell long on that thought but now I must know. Pauline!" She lifted her long lashes and let him see what lay beneath. There waa no coquetry In those clear depths now. "Ich liebe dich!" she said, simply words that In any language need no translation. After a long, long time, when they had once more become conscious of the pavements and the shops and the earth, Frauleln Pauline said, "Ernest, my first care shall be to exterminate the one fault which I find In thee. Thou art too proud. I was left lonely and unhappy simply because I had more money than tbou hadst and thy pride could not bear tbe thought Couldst thou not have loved me so well that wealth would have meant nothing to thee?" "It was for your sake " "For my Sake! Then thou didst not give me credit for equal depth of soul with thyself. Ach!" "Pauline, treuea herts, forgive me! I see my mistake." "It Is well, for I have a confession to make to thee. I have done my best to please thee by being poor, but alas! I am still rich. Ach, It is a dreadful change of prospects, I am sure, but I trust to thy honor as a gentleman not to desert me under the sad cir cumstances." Her eyes smiled at him mischievously. "It was only what you Americans would call a bird." . s "A bird? Oh. I see. A lark! You were carrying tbe vests for somebody else. But this plain gown?" Frauleln Pauline laughed merrily. "Thou art also a bird!" she sold. "Thou art a goose! It Is a Paris gown. Dost thou think that vest-makers wear such a fit But Ernest tbou has not sold that I am forgiven for still being rich." Herr Westcott drew her Into a empty entry, and kissed ber. "Dear little lark." he aald, "I have learned my lesson!" . Sets Comfort Before Fashion. " Dr. Hans Richter, the famous musical conductor.
