Richard E. Burton. A CONFESSION. In tho twilight shadows of oil even lug in September n woman Fcated her self in mi open window to peruso tho day's mail. Tho room vns tho tidy, correct chnnv bcr of a spinster. Not n feature of tho placo or its ln longing hinted at tho thought of a girl in her teens. All the literature, photogravure, and even the papering protested against tho ago of frivolity. Tho small writing table, never littered by the moods of young scribes, was correct as usual, and with a Grecian patterned letter opener Eunice Raven cut tho leaves of n New York posted letter. Peoplo said that is, they had so ventured whon in tho confidential prosenco of their dearest friends that Eunico Raven onco had nn admirer. No one knew positively that ho actu ally reached tho importance of a "beau, " and as Kunico declined to claim any such article, surely no one could know better in tho matter than tho woman herself. Eunice Raven was a good and unselfish woman in her small world, and ran tho sands of life taven roeaauro with out a suspicion of revolt, but there were times when she did rebel, and her ro' hellion only took her tho oftener to her little room over tho best parlor, where her Thomas a Kenipis and other spiritual condiments wero pencil marked nnow. If any ouo in Palenvillo hod chanced to seo Eunice Raven open that New York posted letter, thcro would have remained no doubt for them that eho onco had an admirer. Out from tho strangely directed envelope fell a small sized photograph ono of tho old style, with never a bit of polish in tho finishing, and nothing but grim featured lineaments depicted. Tho faco was a strong, manly countenance, -with much frank kindness in tho smiling eyes and a chin showing well tempered affection. Tho picture brought a warm, glow to the gazer's face, while the light of a Bloeping memory, dim at first and quickly deepening, flamed from heart to face The letter was a long one, closely written, and apparently with effort, crossed and recrossod womanwiso. Within was n second letter unopened, with the date of 10 years resting on its shamefaced surface. Over tho first, leaning toward tho light and nerved for something more vaguely feared than discovered, Eunice read with puzzled face. Over tlw second she paused, and the dim light of that rekindled memory again filled and glowed upon her. Sho trembled with all the agitation of her girl heart aroused Taking it between hor wiry fingers, Eunice studied the still unbroken seat Then aloud sho read the data. "If it had come to me then, there would havo beon no happier day in my life," she said. "Ninotcen years from his hand to inino." Sho laid tho letter down and droppod buck in the chair. Hor position, reflected by tho faithful mirror, was on awkward, slouching one. It was just such sho had maintained in her teaching last session that only a woman with no backbono would as sume, and she at onco sat reot in the instant correction of such laxity. "Nineteen years too late." And 19 years tho wrong sidoof matrimony, when ono is alone in the world, is llttlo inuro than siuglo misery. Her eyes, blinded with hot, angry tears at tho cruel, disappointing bitterness of it. Thin she read again tho fino Trench iheets of milk white paper upon which tho guilty confession of tho writer looked blocker than at first As she read sho tried to picturo very jorrectly aud justly tho mind of the writer. Sho tried to bo impartial. Sho tried to jndgo with tho essence of judgment severity. She succeeded in a large, full, teeming measuro of mercy. A few tears, and sheyUie accuser, the defender. It is often u worn-un's as way. Tho writer of tho letter now ill, undoubtedly dying was making confession for relief of soul. Bister ot tho man Eunice Raven loved, and who hud loved Eunico, she wrote how bitterly sho had hated the very name of an unknown sister. With no father or mother, and an only brother, who made her entire or world, sho had thought anything better thau to lose hln leno and care, and when Euuico had como into his life, and ho had uunouncud his intention of asking to becomo newer to him, tills was tho thing sho had douo: "I folt," she wroto, "that I would beg, lie or steal before you should como homo hero, and whon brother went to his room to writo you to become his wife I knew that letter and I knew my brother. "Aud the devil knew mo in tho hour of my wicked wiakncss. The letter I intercepted and hid. is "I know his epirit of sensitive prido so well that When tho tempter whis pered, 'Ho will never writo but onco,' I know it welL "I knew if he never had an answer from you that thero would bo no othor, word from him to you. his "I havo lived with the torturo of that stolen lettor, which your heart lias I wrung from inin'o a thousand times in ! our silent spirits' war, with you over cowmeriug. I am dying, but tho for homo uud tho brother uio here, I "Como in unto him and dwell with k'ra' I "Preside at my chair, sit at my plate, drink from my cup, and mayQod grant you n doublo blessing and me n doublo mercy. Amen." And so Euuico wept. Not for herself; her sufferings had been years in darkness, and here was light. Aud through such sho looked into tho soul of that othor woman. And then sho prayed. Sho was beyond tho dear Thomas-n-Kempis andTilcston gems of her agony hours. Sho went to God with that other woman. And when sho arose from her knees, instead of opening that letter sho dried I her eyes and smoothed her hair for tlio tea table. When n gentle little old lady put her head with n jerk in at tho door and said, "Tea is ready, Miss Eunice," sho followed her without a word and drank tea with her same dally precision. And when, tea being over, she and the gcutlo llttlo old lady sat out on tho quiet piazza together, with only tho song of sleepy insects and the great beauty of n mountain night, sho said; "Miss Annie, I lmo u story to tell yon," And tho gcntlo llttlo old lady heard with an amused interest Euuico Raven's romance. "Now, Miss Annie, what ought I to do? Fror for me tonight and tell mo when you call me in tho morning," finished Eunice, "Tell you what you onght to dol Why, Miss Eunice, marry him I Just to think, you poor dear, as much as I have liked your quiet way as a boarder, and that bad, too, as I dreaded taking you. You have nver given the troublo of a kitten, though. I should miss you r.ioro than a hull orphan asylum." "Remember, Miss Annie, it is 19 years, mid I have not read his letter yet," returned Eunice. "Not read the lettor yetl" oxolaimcd tho gentle little old lady. "Well, yon do bent all. But one beau, and never had but oue letter, being 10 years coming, and you not read it yet. Land o' love, MissEuuicc, I'm amazed. I should go right up stairs and read that thero letter this very minute." Eunico Raven went slowly to her little room, but as soon as she entered tho very dots in the curtains began to dance before her, and the white ohair covers and bedspread all seemed shrouds that gave her shivers. Going to her trunk, sho unpacked n picture of herself in youth. She held it critically before the candlo glare. It mirrored a fresh, bright, happy face, Sho compared it with her poor, worn ono. The significance of tho act was tho last nnd saddest truth of her wretched misery. "Sorrow beautifies only the heart, not the face of a woman." "All I" exclaimed Eunice, holding the image of her girlhood at arm's length. That night there was disorder in the chamber of Eunioo Raven, and the tumult of ler soul was great, but as the gray dawn crept gently about her the woniRn aroso from her knees and, bearing herelf erect and firmly poised, stood beside tho writing tablo at her eastern window. a Beneath her lay the unowned letter that had awaited her hand these 19 years, fane smiled at some grim thought In abstract nnd looked out over the sun tinted mountains. In the shadow of their quiet, mighty grandeur thcro laystrength. Wlthcold, a narrow lips sho pressed tho letter once, twice and then, with steady, unerring pen, sho wrote across its surface: "Only a heart, a faco and a name." I She laid it and lecked it nway in the very bottom of her trunk. And when the had dono that sho simply went on with tho life of Eunioo Raven. Larks." Tsuhlon In Calling Card, no Tho Roman or block letter is becoming more popular as tho stylo of engraving for visiting card plates, whllo the fashionably thin card of two shoet quality is eminently proper. Cards for to both men and women oro considerably smaller, and tho script engraving is finer in consequence, following moro closely tho English stylo than the Pari sian, which is largo and with flourishes. The block or Roman letter plato Is very English, imd with those affecting London styles it finds great favor. The price moro than doubles that of script bo engraving. Ladles use the block 6tylo now on their cards for teas and receptions, ns it admits of the necessary engraving of days within a smaller spaco than tho script aud enables n smaller card being used.

Sinco ho became a respcotablo and law-abiding citizen ho has taken very good caro of bis family, and ho does not proposo to commenco doing anything clso now. When tho nego tiations wero first begun ho was asked if ho could shoot with both hands. "Well," ho replied. "It used lobe that I could, and I guess I have not forgotten how yet." James has been working steadily for somo timo, but has novor been nblo to make an exorbitant salary, and for that reason would bo willing to tako tho risk of this venture. As ono of his friends says: "It is not as much a risk as ho has token on hundreds of occasions before, whon out on ono of bis raids. The only diflbrenco would bo that in this ho would havo tho law on his sido." Squared With Conscience. Tho old man was leaning over a pino table, laboriously making pencil marks on a sheet of white paper. "It's domed hard writiu' advertisements, Maria," ho said at last, "when you don't know jes how." "You writ ono last summer, Hiram. Can't you jes' copy it?" sho asked. " 'Twan't no good," ho answered, shortly. "I'vo been lookiu' tho up sinco then, an' I find I loft out a hull lot. Is tho old trough down in tho lot all cleaned out?" "Henry cleaned it this morniu'," sho said. "All right," ho returned, bending to his work again. "I'll put in 'good bathin' within easy walkin' distanco ot tho houso.' " "Ain't that n lie, Hiram?" she asked, doubtfully. " 'Conrso it ain't," ho replied promptly. "It would bo a lie if I said anything about swimroin', bnt that trough is good for bathin'. Is tho windmill workin' all right?" "Tho boys say it's a little cranky yet, but they've got it fixed so's it works most of tho time." Ho went at it with tho pencil again, and a fow minutes later ho read tho following: "Running water not ten yards from tho door." Maria shook her head. "Mcbbo it's all right," sho said, "but it don't seem so to me. I s'poso yon put in soniethin' about the lawn, too." "Of course I did," ho replied. "I said it was a lovely lawn an' almost limitless. I'll paint 'lawn' on a board and stick it up in tho old hayficld 'cross the road. Then I said, 'Fish within a mile,' and " "Fish!" she exclaimed. "Thero ain't any fishin' within twenty milo of here." "Who's talkin' of fishin?" he de manded. "I said 'fish,' and I know thero's fish at Cy Parker's general store, not moro'n a mile from bore, for I seo box of sardines thero myself yesterday." "I s'poso you'vo got in somethin' about fine shade trees," sho said, resignedly. "Of conrse," ho answered, "and that ain't no lie, either, for you know thero's hull grovo of them up tho road a ways.

Louisville Pot 1 When Congress sent to President Arthur a river and harbor bill calling an appropriation of $18,000,000, ho vetoed tho measure, and in his message said: "Appropriations of this nature, to devoted purely to local objects, tend to an increase in number and amount. As tho citizens of ono State find that money, to raise which they, common with tho wholo country, taxed, is to bo expended for local improvements in another State, thoy demand similar benefits for themselves, it is unnatural that they should seek to indemnify themselves for such uso of publio funds by scouring appropriations for similar improvements in their own neighbor-hood. Thus, as tho bill becomes moro objectionable- it secures moro support. This result is invariable necessarily follows a neglect to observo tho constitutional limitations imposed upon tho law-making power. appropriations for river and harbor improvements have.nnder tho influenco which I havo alluded, increased by year out of all proprotion tho progress of tho country, great as that has been. In 1870 tho aggregato appropriation was in 1875, 80,048,517; in 18S0, $8,070,500; in 1881, 311,451,000, whilo tho present act thero is appropriat 818,743,875."
