"I only hopo you are satisfied." Mrs. Josiali said, with what was meant to bo withering sarcasm, alter the last guest had gone, and she stood a moment before the fire; "I only hope you are satisfied particularly with the attention Ernest paid to that young woman very unnecessary attention Indeed."

So he is. And it he wants to marry n beggar, and she is a good, virtu ous girl why not?" A little gasp of horror and dismay was the only answer of which Mrs. Maybcrry was capable. 4 "Grandpa!" Winnie' a voice was so low that Mr. Wil mington only just heard It, and when he look ed up he saw the girl's crimson cheeks and her lovelv, drooping face. i "Yes, Winnie, iou want to tell me some thing?" She went up behind him, and leaned her hot cheek carressingly against his, her sweet, low voice whispering her answer "Grandpa, I want to tell you something. I Mr. May we Ernest has asked wants mo lo on, granapo, can you nov ieu wuhi it is? ' lie felt her cheek grow hotter against his. Ho reached up his hand and caressed theoth- r one.

"And may 1 tell him you are willing, per dly willing, grandpa? llecatise I do love him. you know." Are you sure it it isn t ins money you are alter, eh?"

' It was the "young man himself," Ernest Maybcrry, with a shadow of deep trouble and distress on bis face as he emtio straight up to Winnie and took her hand, then turned to the 1 gentleman. ' Until an hour ago I thought this would be ho proudest, happiest hour ot my life, sir, for I should have asked you to give mo Win ie for my wife.

What are tho woman suffragists going to o about Maryland? Thatbtate has just done them a grievous wrong in changing the mot to on her coat of arms and it will bo strange indeed if something doesn't happen in conse quence. The old motto on the Maryland coat-of-arms was an honest Eatin one, and its sig nification was, " Increase and Multiply." Nobody could find any fault with that mono. It was a good, homely, matter-of-fact admoni tion, and certainly one which applied just as much to the women as to tho men oi the com munity. It couldn't possibly be held as ad vice to one sex alone. .Now, Maryland has seen fit to change the legeud. The Latin maxim Is done away with, and upon the shield ot the state Is replaced by the inscrip ion in trivial Italian: " Oeeds Are Masca ine. Words are Feminine." Think of it this allusion to a fe in initio weakness in the way ot much speech appearing upon a state's coat-of arms, and there perpetuated ! Where are Mrs. Stanton and Mrs. Howe and Miss Anthony aud all the sisterhood, that this jeer- ng commonwealth is not invaded by the mil lions whoso feelings are thus outraged ? And, where is the boasted gallantry and chivalry of i the Maryland) r? And whither are we drift ng: .,)'' Jlt'publiriH. C'oi.on KDit JUttku.

The story goes thus: A little chapel bad been confis cated, and .'.us being refilled for n public place of ii.s'nietiiio, itccording t tlie ll'issian Idea. A painter win engaged in decorating the ceiling, when the captain in command of that district happened to drop in to see how the work as progressing. " What is that scene vou arc painting?" he queried. " Abraham's gaenflco-rrnm the bible. . " Who is that savage old codger with the dirk tn his buna r That's Fnther Abraham : he has received divine commnn J to slay his son, and is just in tho act of obeyiug." Tho officer seemed to study the bituatlon, and at last ( xdaimed with some displeasue and impatience: "That's no way to butcher a while boy! Shoot him!" With this curt order he turned on his heel and went out of the building. The artist scratched bis bead in a puzzled way for a while, aud then went to work. The result was. Abraham's knife disappeared and in its place appeared a dainty revolver, latest patent. This conception evidently pleased the paint er, but he was struck with the idea that if the weapon should accidentally gu off poor lit tle Isaac Dotlnng in tho world could save him. Ah, the genius of invention camo lo his aid. Result No. 2 soon placed a nice little angel in the clouds above Abraham's head, and that unsuspected guardian held in his hand a sixt en-inch syringe aimed at Hit muz zle of the pistol. Of course every one could tell at a glance what this meant. While Abraham was tremblingly awaiting the word of command, tho angel was slyly squirting a dampening stream ot vapors into the deadly "charge," and the ticklish weapon is made harmless! i Murphy, the apostlo of temperance who has during the past month or two achieved such a mighty work-in Pittsburg, is about to .open a campaign in Chicago. The Interior publishes a letter from Pittsburg in regard to Mr. Murphy, from which the following is an extract: ' I think irom a remark you made in tho rc I port of Mr. Sawyer's farewell meeting, that you uiisunders'and Mi. Murphy's plan of labor. Speaking of his work iu Pittsburgh you said: "And yet so far as it is only the 'signiugot a pledge (though even that may ! have a value) wo feci no great confidence in permanent gain to the ranksof those who have come up out of the slavery of appetite." This certainly Is a mistake. The secret of Mr. Murphy's success is his faith in God, and impressing upon his converts the importance and necessity of trusting iu Christ for strength to resist the appetite of strong drink. He daily exhorts them not lo put their trust in the pledge, but in God. Ho pleads with them to snck Christ and join tho church. When he is Inviting them to come up and sign the pledge be warns them jmt to trust in it, but to give their hearts to Jesus, who only can keep them from the evil.

The invention of the modern svstein of punctuation has been attributed to the Alex andrian grammarian, Aristophanes, after whom it was improved by succeeding gram msrians; but it was so entirely lost in the time of Charlemagne that ho found it neces sary to have it restored by Warncrfried and Alcala. It cousisted at first of only one point, used in three ways, aud sometimes of a stroke formed in several ways. But as no paiticu lar rules were followed in the use ot these signs, punctuation was exceedingly uncertain, until tho end of the 15th century, when the learned Venetian printers, (ho Manutii, in creased the number of tho signs, and estab lished some fixed rules for their application. These were so generally adopted that we m.iy consider the Munutu as the inventors oi the present method of punctuation; and although modern grammarians have introduced some improvements, nothing but a few particular rules liBve been added since their time.

Two hundred and ninety-ouu students were enrolled in the Normal Department, alone. This is proba bly the largest attendance with which n term ever opened at this institution. The first week closed with three hundred and three names on tl.f roll. About tinny students are obliged to occupy bttues that have been plac ed in the aisles for their accommodation. The amount ot special professional training work is largely increased. The new class is placed under the charge of the training teacher, so that even the "one termers" hereafter will have good opportunities for special Normal training.
