'I *t ,, MILLER THE MLLEB. SliUer. the miller' was a handsome, but silent and odd, "old- bachelor." He looked—from the crown o£ his head to the soles.of his boots^as ilhe hod-just been rolling in the .flour he hod ground. His fine old horse, which waS born black, carried so much flouf on his coat that he wia£called"Dusty Itfiller." 1 Miller the miller had-ipne marked peculiarity. He would ffirdly speak to women. He had been left an. or phan, and a hard-hearted woman had made his boyhood haid. He .was poor in youth, and his early court ships had not ended as he had hoped. tj'sj.'g Thus his heart had been turned away from- womenkind into a lonely rut of Vj -life, and he had fallen under the spell' Ipte of the evil spirit of a false opinion. .1. As we said, Miller the miller hadj a bitter and,violent step-mother from babyhood. We might bave add ed that when his father died he had been passed over to an uncle, whose .'•••••' wife was a perfect shrew, who was half insane on cleanliness,.and chased ..... her husband and the boywith broom and mop, warning ,them- about her white floorl Those were tho women Si®!*: be had Brat known IP The bad romance of his youth that had ended so disastrously we will not ptfe repeat, save only to say that in onere sS'iV?! spect, one only, they made a:.,very sour man of Miller, the miller. Young Miller,'.went the. night after his uncle's fureral to live with old Jarvis, the miller, whosesimple house keeping was done by a brother,' more noted for his culinary skill than for his mental power. Here Miller found a place of peace —"not a woman "within sight," he said. .. "It waB very restful." a vi a a few years, "Billy went off to live with a Bister, and-the house was sold. •m Sip ...... ssmm tmmm' Miller took theihill. Ho partition ed off a kitchen and bedroom in the loft, and made a parlor of one corner, on the floor with the "hopper," put into it ared table and for yellow chairs, and hung up some of those chromos with which people are punished for taking-papers they do not want, ^and never read. .. ... So he lived here like an ancherite, his only vexation being the little' girls who came in on their way from school to stare down into the hopper, or .who leaned over his rickety fence to see the great, block-wheel churning the silver. 10am. He would sometimes mutter: "They'll get drowned or ground up some day, and then it'll be laid on to my will or me."- When Miller the miller was about thirty-five years old, his brother died leaving an orphan boy of ten-year. Miller brnshed the flour off his* best clothes, gtt his horse, and rode twenty miles to the funeral. Now Miller the miller had a sympathetic heart, after all.and waen ne returned, he brought mile Iko(Jtas brother's s.On, tad his small bundle totho old niill with him. Ike was.'bdrn and had-always lived in "the hired m^n's house" on a farm, in full view of the barnyard, and a level sweep of hard workup fields. We can imagine his delight uthe wonders of his new home, with a^jpuntain be hind, a stream.' below, a valley, and fields aind forests on every hand! .. Bp the mill, with its great wheel dashiiig and splashing among. -the waters, sending crystal arrows and rainbow wreaths in every direction—that-was to him the glory of all this picturesque region. It was like a dream of fairyland. And this was his home, and he could see and hear the mill-noises always, and climb the high banks of the Btreani, and catch squirrels, and skip stones —and—and^-everythingl' mm But Miller the miller was not as-well pleased with his nephew as his nephew with him. The boy made anew con dition of affairs necessary. The mil ler now thought the place too rough and mean, and set out to finish off his rooms with latlje and plaster and paint. He put up -white curtainsfin place of the green paper ones, and Act ually bought a carpet for. the parlor corner, which was now a real room, partitioned .off from the main mill. As his- house improved,che.began to like the boy better, and to become very indulgent toTiim There, in this "elegant home," the boy had his schaol-friends as often as he chose to ask them.' Together they popped corn and made molasses candy, and whittled out boats in win-, ter,- and they stuffed birds and pressed wild flowers in summer. So the years went. on, 'the miller growing less odd in their flight. But he still kept up.his old .Antipathy for women—an antipathy that he could not have cherished had he ever knowii a mother and a mother's" love'. Ike.waS a happy-boy, and became a "great favorite with his neighbors. At eighteen years old h»xould do a man's work.in tl^e mill,- beside going to school in winter. A shadow tell across the miller's spirit Ucebeganto look at the girls. He carried their skates and their books, he risked' his life oil the precipice. over 'the-stream to- gather the "lad "night el .. ly's ear-drop" and"the purple shade" for theitf. He went on sleigh-rides and to par ties—and—and—well, Miller the miller had heard of' his walking, home one moonlight evening with little*? Buthie •Bowne, whom he had sent out of the mill a doneu tiniea in as many years for looking down the' hopper, and for gathering flour-dust to: play baking With Hefc apy thing, and he. felt delicate about beginning that now—they were so hap 1 py together! Thfe trouble grew. ('Something's got to be done quick about this," he said, "and it will be done too!* And in his resolute zeal, he boxed the side "of his own head imagining it waff Ike's head. But theJboy came home' so happy, whistling'lb'cheerlly!" He set down nis coffee and molasses and salt and sugar with ouch an innocetjt air that bis uncle could not speak harshly, s- vBut at last he aid manage to aay, SVSV'Ike, do you' keep clear of nonsense, mind that nowl". /'What nonsense?" asked Ike, inde penderitly. (,_- "Why, keep clear of fplks—people girls,". he added, compromislngly: "drlathat you know nothing about!'-.' IBe continued— Hill "Thew'a Buth Bownt how-ih« —she"— MWhat about her?" "Wellj not her, but he? mother"— "Why,. Mrs. Bowne's a mother to everybody!. She's the best woman in the worldl" "No, ..it. was her grandmother meant." "Old Mrs. Bowne?" 'ffo, the other one "S '"There wasn't any other grandmoth er you could know! Mra.Bowne's own mother died whenshe was a year old." ''Well, I guess on the whole, it1 wafl Ruth's greataunt I meant." HWhat ailed her?" .'asked Ike. Why —she —she —was —she—had— the—rheumatism, and" When he recovered himself, Millez ,the miller said, "You keep your neck out of the noose and remember,' Ike, Miller the miller was greatlv .exer cised after this, axid fancieu he saw Ike's heart stolen from him,'-.and his home made desolate by some flowex of a girl who would turn into a scold ing woman. Alas, alas, for Miller the miller! This hour was coining on, and fate was even at his very heels. One night, thinking singing-school must have been out a longtime, concluded to drop in at Deacon Bowne's to ask what made his horse's crupper gall his neck. The horse didn't know it did! Th« miller thought by so doing he would surprise Ike there and then he would —he would— he didn't know what would or wouldn't-do! When he went in, there was.com-' p&ny, and that was more than he had imagined. The first one to jump ilp and offet him a chair was Ike, who exclaimed,— •'Well) this is a treat,- to see uncle out visiting! ..Here's a welcome foi ypu!"^' vv^,^ Tlie* bravery' of this took the spirit all out of Miller the miller. He laugh ed reluctantly, 'sat down after beint introduced to'the deacon's cousins, a stalwart manand a pretty little wom an by tho dame, of Craig, from Pine Falls, some twenty miles away. The miller actually stayed and at apples and nuts, and talked and laughed with the rest of the company. He didn't go home till Ike said,— ."Come, uncle, this is pretty latefoi you and me to be outf We must go home now." Miller had indeed bought "a lot 61 stuff," enough to-feast a dozen fatni lies. He had bread and biscuit' and rolls and crackers ofavery'shape and name- He had fruit-cake" and frosted-: cake, spongecake and brides-cake, nut-cake, currant-cake, doughnuts, sugar cookies,-molasses cookies, arid hearts and rounds. All these were piled up on as man^ large blue-edged plates, looking like a. chain of tiny mountains. Then there was canned salmon and pressed beef and smoked beef, cheese and three kinds of pies—such as they were—and to crown them all,, there \x'ere two peach-cans, with the exagger ated pictures still on them -filled with long sticks of candy of every name and hue, and there were nuts and raisins and apples! The miller looked very sad aa they all rose from the table, saying, there was as much "stuffs now as when they Bat down, ".ThereLwas.now story telling, guessing of conundrums and singing.. The guests admired every thing, frpm the corn-room And the hopper, down, to the stuffed birds-and pressed flpwers and on ^oing away, Miss Craig'told the miller it had been one of the pleasantest visits she had ever made, and added, merrily,— "1 "There's an old deserted mill near us.. I believe I'll buy it, and'live in it myself!" Miller the -^miller wanted to sav," "You needn't do that one mill would hold three of us."- Bi)t he was too cautious. Before long the "Dusty Miller'' went away on business.. .. Ike bad to keep bouse two atr three' days aloiie. When the miller Came back he said, "Ike, I am going to be marriea." "Married? When? To whom?" "Well, any one who saw-.Mr. Craig's, house tvpuld wonder at Miss Craig be ing willing to live in tha loft of a grist milll" Four years have passed. The miller —now wonderfully softened toward all "womankind"—has moved into a pretty cottage.- The cheeriest.and: happiest- man in that town is Miller the miller, whose only regret is that he did not get out of his^Ut-of-life-'fifteen years before, and w^: wonders ,where all the cross and disagreeable women have vanished to. He crodits himself withallt.his hap pinesaj and at the risk of this story seeming too^ mucK- Uka^fttiovel, we may. as well add that Ike and- Ruthie £re also very happy There are.no more hospitable homesan-pur town now than lke's^ axcept Miller the mil- IV in* Chicago Special: Georgo C.

There were sixteen distinct shocks from the recent earthquake. The first shock was fearful and houses were shaken as though made of pastoboard/ It seemed as if every thing must topplo. The earth rose and fell like the waves of the ocean. People rushed madlyTrom their .houses into the street. Some sprang from 'windows and wero in jured. _The expeHonce of those in build ings at the' time of the first shock was that of being rocked as if in a Bhip at Bea. Many of the^ most: substantial build ings were shaken to tho foun dations and the walls cracked and. sprung. The rumblingin. the earth was loud and horrifying in the extreme. Clocked topped, bells wore rung and darpago'done to' some buildings, principally by topplinjg chimneys. There were numbers of cases of nervous fo On fheir way home the miller re marked,^— "Very- nice folks those Craigs aoce." "Yes, uncle, I agree with you." So they were agreed. .Next morning at breakfast the visit was alluded to, and Miller the miller ac tually said, "Th^t Craig'wasn't such a fop! as most men are—he didn't marry until lie found a woman worth having —did he? Where, do you suppose he found this one Ikti?" "Found her? Why, I suppose he found her at home!" A few days after this the miller ask ed Ike how long "Mr. Craig and his wife" were going to stay at the Bow nes'.:'' :§:'v:V "His wife's atr home. Miss Craig is his sister," said Ikb: "Oh, yes! Well, I was thinking, Ike, that all the years I've lived in the mill I've never had any one here to- a meal, excepting beggars and tramps. The Bownes are good neighbors, and I've half a mind to ask them over to' tea- while they're here." "Wliewl" cried Ike, in jovial surprise. '•But 'who would make tho cake and the fotde-rols they always have for company?" he added. "I ride over to Seaver Pond, and buy up a lot of stuff of the baker, and some peaches,and pineapples and such things in cans,'and other knick knacks. It's only nine utiles, yotiknow. •I'd have the table all'set before they came Have we dishes enough for six?" "Who are your six?" asked* Ike.

"Yes. and you and me—isn't that six?" rostration, and doctors were in demand compose, the frightened people. One lady was prematurely delivered by the shock.

Parents should lose no time therefore in placing their children in establishments of well known reputation where they may be trained to become good and useful men and women. Tor girls we can earnestly recommend St. Joseph's academy, St. Paul, as the model institution, ot the kind in the northwest, a fact clearly proven by -the long list of applications the sisters have already received from all parts ot this section.
