All -he afternoon they had been locking over it together, happy as two birds with a newly -finished nest. But when Arthur" dosed the door and put the key in his pocket, in the chill, waning light of the December afternoon, and gave Katy his arm to see her home, it was ail '"broken up" between them, and a notice. 'To Let," was put over the door of the house the very next morning: 'It was the nif'st foolish thing to L) : but then lovers can always find fiomcthing to quarrel about.

''lie did wait, nearly a week, and whn he called at the modest locking-house where he had wont to visit so often, he was told that MissCardiner had been gone three days. "(bone where?" he asked, slow to believe. "She did not Uil me, sir. She said she was not coming back. Her aunt lives at Bristol." He then took the 'next train to Bristol and investigated ; but neith er there nor in any other place, though he searched for months af terward, did he find any fign or trace of Katy Gardiner. ' All this happened more than a year before I saw Katy; but we three "factory girls," who lodged at Mrs. Howell's with her, of course knew nothing about it She came to the factory and applied for work. The superintendent thought her too delicate for such labor, but she icr sisted : and, in fact, the improved in health, spirits and looks alter she became used to work and the simple fare of the factory girls. She was a stranger to us, and it seemed likely that .she would re main so. ;But one day Mary Uas com's dress caught in part of the machinery, and before anybody else could think what to do Katy had sprang to her side and pulled her away by main strength from the terrible danger that threatened licr. After that Mary and Lizzie j Payne and I, who were her dearest friends, were Katy's sworn allies. j We all lodged together then in ! the big "Factory boarding-hou je." But Katy took it into her head that we should have so much nicer times in a private lodging to our selves ; and when she took any thing into her head she generally carried it through. In less than a week she had found the very place she wanted, arranged matters with the superintendent, and had us sheltered under Mrs. Howell's vino and fig tree. We four girls were the proud possessors of a tolerably largo, double-bedded apartment, with a queer little dressing room attached "and the liberty of the parlor to receive callers in"" a proviso at which we all laughed. This was "home" to' us after the labor of the daw Indeed and in truth, Katy made the place so charm ing that we forgot the "factory girls" when we got to it. She improvised cunning little things cut of trifles that are usually thrown away as useless, and the flowers growing in broken iots in our windows were a glory to behold. She always had a f'n-sh book or iKriodieal on ourta-j hies ; and better than this, she brought to us tho larger cultivation and the purer lasio, which taught us how to sec opportunities within . our roach. . ' What mad you take to our style of life, Katy?" asked Lizzie one cvvning, as wc all sat in the cast window watching the out-coming of the stars and telling girlish dreams. "Destiny, my child." answered Katy, stooping to replace the little boot she had thrown off to rest her foot '"But you might have been an au thoress, or a painter, or a a book keeper, or " Lizzie's knowledge of this world was rather liuiiUd ; Katy broke in upon her. ' "there that will do. I wan not born a genius, and I hale arithme tic." ' Cut you did not always have lo work for a living, Katy ?" said May. "Vou are a lady, I know." Katy laughed a queer, short laugh. '"Yes," she said, "and that's why I don't know how to get my living in anv way but this.

She had the magazine open, and one of her hands was ungloved ; but it was not until we reached home that she found she had lost a glove. It was too late then to go and look for it. Katy mourned for it. "It w;is my only pair, girls," said she, tragically ; and it is a loss that cannot be repaired. t "p m.o' circles What people call a occurred iu financial had in the spring after Arthur Craig had lost his Katy, and almost without :i day's warning he found himself a poor man. lie left his aiiairs in the hands of Ids creditors having sat isfied himself that they could gath er enough from the "wreck to save themselves and set his face to Lon don. He had been educated for a phy sician, though fortune made a mer chant of him. Leaning from a friend that there an opening for a doctor in Fenwick, he came thither and began to practice. Dr. Sewell had goneoiron a visit, leaving his patients in charge of the new doctor ; and so it came about that on Saturday evening he was on his way to visit Maggie Lloyd, the sick girl at the lodging-house, when just after turning the corner near the news-shop, lie saw a brown glove lying on the pavement Be was about to pass it by ; but a man's instinct to pick up" anything of val ue that seems to have no owner, made him put it in his pocket, lie forgot all about it the next nnnutc. Hut when he had made his call and returned to his consulting room, in taking a paper from his pocket the glove fell out, and he picked it up and looked at it with idle curiosity. 1 1 was old", but wefi preserved. It had been mended often, but so neat ly as to make him regard mending as one of the line arts. It had a strangely familiar look to him. Lit tle", aud brown, and shapely it lay on his knee, bearing the very form of the hand that had worn it. And as he gazed at it there came to him the memory of an hour, many months past, when he had sat by Katy's side on the green sofa in the dinning room of "their house" (alas!) and watched her put her small hands into a pair of brown gloves so much like this one. Ever since that never-to-be-iorgot-len day the vision of his lost love, sittingthcre in the fading light, slowly drawing on her gloves, her sweet eyes filling as they bilked quarreled, wc should say, perhaps had gone with him as an abiding memory of her, until he had come to know each shade of the picture the color of the dress, the ribbon at the throat, and the shap ed plume in her hat He looked at the little glove a long time. He had thought it might belong to one of the factory girf s, as he found it near the lodging house. But it did not look like a "factory hand's" glove. He would ask Maggie Lloyd, at any rate ; so he put it carefully in Jus pocket un tn he should make lus call the nex morning. He had suffered the glove to L come so associated with the memo ry of a past that was sacred to him that he felt his cheek burn and his hand tremble, as he drew it forth to show it to Marrie, who was sit ting, in the comfort of conyales cenee, in an arm chair by the win dow, watching the handsome young doctor write tne prescription for her benefit "By the way, Miss Maggie, do vou know whose glove this is? Maprprie knew it at once. It was Miss Gardiner's glove, "Miss Gardiner's!" The name made his heart beat ajrain. "Is she one of the factory hands?" les; but she louprea with Mrs Howell, quite out of town, almost she was here to see me yesterday." "Oh, I sec !" said he, not the most relevantly. "And can you tell me how to find Mrs. Howell's house? I suppose I could go by and restore tins glove to its owner. Maggie thought this unnecessary trouble ; but she gave the required direction, and he went out saying to himself: "It can't be my Katy, of course, but the to its owner." irlove shall go back Marv and Lizzie went to church that Sunday morning. Katy de clared she couldn't go, having but one glove. I stayed at home with her, and offered to keen Mrs, How ell's children for her, and so per suaded that worthy woman to at tend worship with the girl. And this is how it came about that while we were having a frolic on the carpet with the children in ;urs. iiowcii s room, we neard a ring at the door ; and Bridget hav ing taken herself off somewhere, there was no help for it but for one of us to answer the summons, "You go. Katy," whispered I, in uismay. 1 cannot apiear. Katy glanced serenely at her own lrizz3r head in the looking-glass, gave a pull at her overskirt and a touch to her collar and opened the door. immediately aiterward 1 wras shocked by hearing her utter a gen uine icmininc scream ana seeing her drop on the lloor ; and that a man, a perfect stranger to me, gath ered her up in his arms and began raving over her in a manner that astonished me.

I was surprised at myself after ward, that 1 hadn t ordered the gen tleman out, but it never occurred to me at the time, and when Katy "came to" and sat up on the sofa and heard his speeches, she seemed so well pleased that I left them and toon me emiaren up to our room, leeung bewildered all over. ! What ehall I say further? Only that Katy lives in the pretty house in the town known as Dr. Craig's residence, where we three "factory girls" have a home whenever we want it And there arc no liquors found on her sideboard nor at her table. One day I hoard Arthur nav: "You were a silly child, Katy, to run away from me. I should have given up the point at last, I know." But there would have been the splendid cellar and the ten tousand a year," answered she. "It would have been such a temptation. Wc are safer as it is, dear.'' Hor IVrrible Adventure. There were a party of four couples com i n't over on the Sarcclito boat last Sunday, si id the prettiest girl of the pushers l. Hiked up at Mount Tartialpais and said : " h, that horrid, horrid moun tain. I had the most frightful ad venture up there last summer you ever heard of! Its a wonder my hair didn't turn white." "What on earth was it," chorused the rest "Well, you see, I was up there with a private picnic party, and I wandered off by myself about a mile, picking flowcis. After awhile I sat down to rest in a lonely canon, and before long I heard a queer rustling sound in some bushes right behind me. I knew at once, somehow, that it was a grizzly." . "Great Scott ! and you all alone!" shuddend her escort "Not a soul within a mile of me. I was just paralyzed with terror. 1 didn't dare to stir, but in a minute I heard the beast coming toward me through the thicket ' "Oh, if I'd only been there," said a pimply-faced young man breathing very hard. "I knew it was no use to try and run, and I had read somewhere that boars never touch dead people. Sol just shutmv oves and held my breath." "Gracious !" "Pretty soon the great brute walk ed up and began sniffing me all over. Oh, it was just terrible !" "Should have thought you would hayc fainted." "Oh, I didn't dare to," said the heroine. "Just then I suppose the party rushed up and rescued you," said the anpalled audience. "No, they didn't Pretty soon I felt the great beast pulling at the flowers in mv hat, so I just got up Laud shooed the horrid thing away." "What! The grizzly?" "Oh. it wasn't a grizzly. It was a nasty old cow. IJut just suppose it had Itcen a grizzly !"' But the audience refused to "sup pose," and the party looked like a funeral party until the boat struck the wharf. How to Gain Ilcallli. What is more charming in all na ture's dominion than a thoroughly health' woman abright-eyed, rosy, happy girl who finds keen pleasure in merrily living ? There is nothing charming in illness. An invalid wife and mother furnishes a constant spectacle of sadness and misery to her family and friends, and a sub ject of unlimited expense to her hus band. In such a home the greatest of all blessings that could be hoped for would be the health of the mis tress restored: but too often it is the one blessing that never comes. American homes, more than any other's perhaps, in the world, have been saddened by sickly women. If thi3 shall be so no longer, it will be a great blessing to the nation. And the remedy is simple. Ameri can men are as strong and healthy as those of other nations ; there is no good reason why American wo men should not be. All that is need ed is proper dress and exercise. Let women dress as men do, so that their bodies shall not be squeezed and pressed together, but have free room for motion, and then go out into the air and sunshine, as men do, and exercise their bodies, and the race of American women will not become extinct, but be improv ed, built up and beautiful fit to become the mothers of a growing race. A Literal TrnKlat ion. The translators of the New Testa tament do not give a literal transla tion of all its passages. In the Sun day school lesson of yesterday the unjust Judge is made te say in the King James version : "Because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me." The new version is mucli the same, though the Judge is made to say : l will excuse lier Jest she wear me out by her continual coming." Good Greek scholars say that the Judge, literally translated, says : will avenge her lest she box me in the eve." In explanation of this it may be assumed that the Judge is a rough fellow, and taking account of the persistency of this woman, iron ically assumes that he is afraid if he refuses her justice that she will give him a black eye.

Not a little pain, disease, and sleeplessness also, may be saved by the proper understanding and use of counter-irritant. A Uiiin in the head, and often in other parts of the body, cm be removed or modified by putting the feet in hot water. How? Why? When the feet are ir ritated it causes a rush of blood to them, thi ir veins become full and distended. This draws off the blood that was before crowding into the head or other affected part and pro ducing pain there. Even rubbing the scalp briskly may attract out wardly the blood previously press ing the internal organs. A rubber bag of hot water at the feet, or other warm or gently-irritating application, will often so draw down the blood from the excited brain that one will soon fall into a quiet sleep. Ten or twenty drops of aromatic spirit of ammonia swal lowed in half a tumbler of water on going to led, or when restless and wakeful during the night, will very often put one in an easy slumber. It is quickly absorbed into blood and carried to every purtof the body, producing a gentle stimulus. This calls the blood to every point, equal izing the circulation, and thus re lieving the beLro eic'.tcd I rain. ! A cold generally means that there is or has leon unequal heat, dis turbing the blood circulation and causing congestion, pain and di sease. A gentle physic of oil or calcined magnesia in passing through the system produces a flow to the intestines of lluids drawn from the blood. This reduces the blood as well as draws it from parts aflToctedJby tthe cold. Almost any cold taken before it becomes chror.- ic, or so seated as to produce disor ganization, may be relieved and us ually cured bv such a cathartic dost one not severe enough to dis arrange the digestive apparatus. Physic ii cold is more philosophical than feeding a cold, as the adage has it The latter only aggravates the trouble. A slightly sore or irritated throat is usually relieved or enrol by aj plying an irritant to the outside. Volatile liniment is good for this. It is made by shaking well together anv amount ol sweet on wun one- fourth to one-half its bulk of aqua ammonia or hartshorn, the amount depending upon the strength of the ammonia. It is also useful to rub on the chest when there is sore ness in the muscles. Alcohol or strong whiskey rubbed on the throat (outside) as a counter-irritant often relieves a sore throat, and the same of a sore chest. When using alcohol cover the part well and quickly, to prevent a chill lrom the 'rapid evaporation. Liniment, alcohol, hot water, or hot wet cloths, or mustard, on the outside of the abdomen, tends to relieve irritation of the bowels on the general prin ciple of counter-irritation above mentioned.. For an inflamed sore throat or tonsils, a very good general remedy is to gargle the throat every hour or two with a teaspoonful of chlo rate of potisso solution. It is well to keen m every house a good sized vial of water wile more chlorate of potissa in it than will dissolve. The clear liquid is then -always of un iform strength, ready fur use, a tea spoonful at a time, swallowing it af ter gurgling it against the inflamed tonsils, American Africultaralid. The Sjioiirc Trade. A correspondent of tho Provi dence JVcs, writing from Nassau, Bahamas, says : A very interesting feature of business life here i3 the trade of sponges. Every day, ex cept Sunday, the dock at "the foot of Parliament street winch is the rec ognized mart for this branch of traf fic, is thronged with gentlemen buy ers of this product of the sea. The dock, which is some three hundred feet long by thirty wide, is covered with sponges, put up in strings and arranged in lots, which arc number ed and marked. Mr. Iliggs, the clerk of the market, having seen that each lot is duly labeled with its projK.r tag, makes out as many schedules of the whole as there arc buyers, and furnishes each one with a list Upon this the gentlemen, after a careful examination of the lots, makes his bids, and turns in his paper at tho closo of the market. The offers are then compared, and the highest bid takes the lot. The sale is absolute upon 5 per cent, commission, and the amount of business done in this way is quite large during the entire season.
