Why are you 60 stubborn, liar hhra?" she asked. "You have plenty f lovers." But they do not suit." said Barbara oolJy tying bark her eurU before tho mirror. -Why notr"' "I want lo marry a mau who is brave, equal to any" emergency. If I f ive up my liberty I wuut it taken cara Silly child! what is tho matter with Hp Barney, 'he blacksmith?" Ho is lie. but I never heard that ho was brave." "And vou uuver heard that he was of. W'liat is he matter with Ernest, he jMHismiWi?" "lie is a plat id as goat's milk." "That's no sirn that he is a coward. There is Fritz, the tanner; he is quar relsome enough for you, surely." "lie is no blpcr than a bantam cock. It is iittlo good lie cau do if tho house is ret upon bv robber." "It's not always strength that wins a fight girl. It takes brains as well as brawn. Come, now, Barbara, give theso fellows a fair trial." Barbara turned her fac befuro tho iilrror, letting down ono raven tress, and looping up another. "I will, mother,'' she said at last. '1 bat evening, Krnest, tho gunsmith, knocked at tho door. "You sent for me, Barbara?" ho said, going to tho girl, who stood upon tho learth, coquottishly warming ono pret ty foot and then tho other. "Yes, Krnest," sho replied; 'Tvo Wen thinking on what you said tho ther nigiil when you were here." "Well, Barbara?'' Einef.1 spoke quietly, but his dark !uu eyes Hashed, and ho looked at her tatentiy. "I want to test you." "How?" ,'I want to see if ou dare do a very i : . .. LI,, it.!..,.. ' "What is it?" "There is an old eoflin up stairs. It smells inuuMv. They say KedniHiid, the mun.'ercr was buried in it; but tho Yvil came for his body and left the totfin empty at the end of a week, and at was finally taken from his t' nib. It If up stairs in tho room grandfather ied in, and they say gramlsire does ol. rest easy in his grave for some reason, though that I know nothing abi'Ui. Dart; you make that colli n your M to-nigh. ?" Erncsl laughed. "Is that all? 1 will do that and Bleep soundly. Why, my pretty ono, id you think I had weak nerves?" "Your norves will have good proof rlyou undertake it. Hemember, no Me sleeps in that wing of the hou-o." "I shall sleep tho sounder. " "(rood-night, then. I will send a iad to show you tho chamber. If you will stay till' morning," said tho impo rions Miss Barbara, "I will be your Wife." I Enu st turned straight away and fol lowed the lad in waiting through dim rooms and passages, up echoing stairs, along narrow, damp w:ua where rats wuttlcrl, before a low chamber. Tho lad looked palo and scared, and evi dently wanted to hurry away, but Krn st made him wait till ho took a survey, ky the aid of his lamp. It was very large and full of recesses, which had keen barred across. He remembered that old Grandsiro Ferron had been in mqo for several years before his death, M that this precaution had been neces sary tor the safoty of himself and ot li ars. In the center of tho room stood a offlu; besido it stood a chair. The ium was otherwise perfectly empty. Ernest stretched himself out in the effln. "Bo kind enough to tell Miss Barbara H is a very good tit," ho said, t Tho boy went out and shut tho door, leaving the young gunsmith alone in the dark. Meanwhile, Barbara was talking with the big blacksmith in tho sitting-room. "Barney," said she, pulling her hand away from his grasp when ho would have kissod her, "I have a test to put you to before I give you an an swer. There is a corpso lying in tho hamber where my grandsiro died, in the untenanted wing of tho house. If you dare sit with it all night, and lot othing drivo you away from your post you will not ask mo again in vain.'' "You will givo mo a light and a bot tle of wine and a book t read?" "Nothing." "Are these all the conditions you an offer me, Barbara?" "AIL And if you are frightened, you need never look me In the face again." bo Barney was oonducted to his post ky the lad, who had been instructed in the secret, and whose involuntary start at Ernest's placid faco as he lay in the offin was attributed by Barney to the Mural awe of a corpse. He took his eat, fpd the boy left him alone with the darkness, the rats and tho coffin. Soon after, young Fritz, tho tanner, arrived, flattered and hopeful, from the fact that Barbara had sent for him. "Have you changed your mind. Bar kers?" he asked. "No, and I shall not, either, until 1 liow that you can do a really brave thing." "What shall it beP 1 swear to satis. , tj you." i have a proposal to make to too, Mr p an requires skill as well as cour- Tell me' Well, la this bouse then u mil watching a corpse. Ho is sworn not to leave his post till morning. If you can mako him do it, I shall be satislicd that you are as smart and bravo its a husband oiulit to be." "Why, nothing is so cay," exclaim ed Friiz. "I can scare him away. Furnish me with a sheet, show me the room and go to your rest, is:irt:ir i. You shall lind mo at tho post in t! o morning." Barbara did as required, and saw the taunerstcp lightly away to nis task. It was nearly twelve o'clock, and sho be took herself to her own chain her. Barney was sitting at his igil, and so far all had been well. Tho night seemed very long, for ho had no means of counting the limn. At times a thrill went throui'h nim, or it seemed as though he could hear a low suppressed breathing not far away; he persuaded himself tint it was tho "wind blowing through the crevices of the old Louse. Still it was very lonely, and not at all cheerful. Tho face in the colhn gleamed white and still. Tho rats squeaked as if tliero was a famine upon them and they smell- ed dead llesh. J he thought mail. Ii.m shudder, lie got up and walked about, but some. Iiing made a noiso behind him, and he put his chair Willi its back against tho wall and sat down again, ifo had been at work all day, and at last grew sleepy, finally bo nodded and snored. Suddenly it seemed as if somebody had touched hint. He awoke with a start, and saw nobody near, though in tho center of the room stood a white ligure. "(.'tirso yon. get out of this!" ho ex claimed in a fright, using tho lirst words that came to his tongue. Tho figure held out his arm, and slowly approached him. Ho started to Lis feet. Tho spettro came nearer, pressing him into tho corner. "llio misetiier tako you: cneu uar noy, in his extremity. Involuntarily he stepped back; still the ligure advanced, coming nearer and neat er, as if to take him in a ghast ly embrace. Tho hair started up on Barney's head; he grew desperate, and just as tho gleaming arms would havo touched him ho fell on tho ghost liko a whirlwind, tearing tho sheet, thiimp ing, pounding, beating and kicking, moro and moro enraged nt tho resist ance ho met with, which told him tho truth. As tho reader knows, bo was big, and Frit j; was little, and while ho was founding tho little fellow terribly, and ritz was trying to get a lunge at Bar ney's stomach, to take the wind out of him, both kicking and plunging liko horses, they were petrified by hearing a voico cry: "Tako ono of your size, Big Barney." Looking around, they saw tho corpse sitting ui) in his coflin. This was too much, i'hey released each other and sprang for tho door. They never knew how they got out, but they ran homo in hot haste, panting liko stags. It was Barbara herself who opened tho door in tho morning. "It's very early; ono more little nap," said ho, "ono moro little nap," turning iu his coflin. So sho marriod him, but though sho sent Fritz and Barney invitations to tho wedding, they did not appear. If they discovered the iriek, they kept tho knowledge to themselves, and never willingly fared Barbara's laughing face again. A Helled Kuaznrd. Tho boiled buzzard, whoso flight over Western counties of Georgia h:;s arous ed so much superstitious fear among ignorant whites and bhicks, passed over a tiold near Taylorville, (Ja., recently whero four men wero plowing. Ono of them, a negro, quit work at oneo and said the bird was a warning to the peo ple of another cyclone, in which hun dreds of people would be killed. The story of this celebrated bird is an in teresting one. Nearly two years ngo it was a pet in tho farm yard of a farm er named Freeman, in l'auldingeouuty. One of tho children one day atlachod a sheep bell to tho bird's foot, and tho tinkling sound so scared it that it im mediately flew away. Tho first night out it alighted on tho roof of a negro cabin in Heard county. One of tho in mates went out to a-oertain the causo of the licil-ringing, and immediately the buzzard rose from its perch and flew away. The night was clear and cold, and as tho inmates rushed out and beheld the great black ol ject, and heard the tinkling of the bell hundreds of feet up in tho air, great fear seized them, and they all took to their knees under the impression that the end of tho world was approaching. Ever since tho bird has pursued its migrations through the state, arousing tho fears of tho superstitious, who regarded ita visit as an omen of evil. The negroes, and many whites, too, along tho track of tho late storm insist that they heard tho fateful bell about an hour beforo tho torriblo wrath of wind had come upon them. In 1817 a buzzard was similarly belled in 1'utnam cyunty, and up until 18.r0, when its presence was last reported in (ireen county, ho was vouched for as having visited points as far as West Meridian, Miss., and in several northern counties of Tennes see. A Californian planted a eucalyptus tree in his yard ten years ago. For seven years he noticed no improvement or growth. 'At tho end of that time, however, the tree shot up rapidly. Re cently, while cleaning his well, ho found tho bottom matted with eucalyp tus roots, which had forced their way through the brick wall of the wol! so as to get at tho water. The well was lifty -;i vo feet distant from tho spot whf t ! tree stood above ground. m A party of Aineric.'iii travelers were on tho railroad platform at Heidelberg. Une of tho travelers happened to crowd a Heidelberg student, when he drew himse.f up, scowled pompously and laid: "Sir, you are crowding; keep back, sir." "Don't you like it, sonny?" asked tho American. "Sir," scowled the student, "allow me to tell you, sir, that I am at your ser vice nt any time and place." Oii, you are at my service, are you?" said the American. "Then just "carry this satchel to the hotel for me."

Mosier's noonday class.as il is called has been iu operation for several ye r in tint blacksmith shop of ll cwsii r & Co.'s carriage I'sctury, at Broadway and Forty-seventh si reel, N--W York. Tho shop employs about 5J.SJ men and twenty to tweiity-tivo bos. There are no apprentices, and the boys are hired by the week and advanced as they show npiitude for tho business. Mr. Mosier. who is foreman of tho smith ing sho), devotes the most of his noon hour to tho education of theso boys, or such of them as are willing to learn. Some of them have had a liulo sclioo. ing in the public schools, but most f them have gone backward rattier than forward sine') llicy left school. Mr. Mosier's Idea comprised the preserva tion, bv exercise, of what education tho boys had, as well as tho development of it and its application to the practical work of tho boys' lifetime th: art of carriage building. Merely by the use of a few minutes snatched from tie noon hour mo practical neneni to tne boys is now plainly visible. On Mon days and Tuesdays the I oys study arithmetic. Examples aro given on the blackboard, and oral instruction, to gether with book study. On Wednes days they are given technical journa.s on carriage building to read. On Thurs day they read bistoiy and ordinary school readers. On Fridays they again read the technical journals, of which there aro half a dozen now printed, re lating to carriage building. On Satur days tho boys study and practice free hand drawing, copying examples from the blackboard. Each boy takes home ono of tho technical journals and copies from it one page eacli woek into a book. These books are compared, criticised, and corrected by the tet.chor. As fast as the boys progress they are advanced to higher grades of drt.wing, all leading to lit them to enter the car riage draughting school in Thirty-fourth street. In this way the boys become fami iar with the accurate forms of every part of a carriage. They al so learn the process of manufactur ing the dill'erent part, including tho painting and finishing, even to the drawing of crests and armorial decora tions. There is a chanco to develop whatever peculiar talent any boy may have. Tho buys aro taught simple bookkeeping by being required to keep their own accounts. As a stimulus Brewster &Co. givo re wards to the ino.it prolicieut.

Y. Sun. MTKKATUKE FOiS CIIILDIIRH. Julian Hawthorn. in tho April Sorth American Il vino says: It is not neces sary thai I should state how earnestly I depreciate the kind of literary food which wo are now furnishing to tho coming generation in such sinister abundance. I am sure it is written and published with jrood and honest motives; but at tho very best it can only do no harm. Moreover, however well-intentioned, it is bad as literature; it is poorly conceived and written, and, what is worse, it is saturated with af fectation. For an impression prevails that no one needs to talk down to chil dren; to keep them constantly re minded that they are innocent, igno rant little things, whoso consuming wish is to bo good and go to Junday school, and who will bo all gratitude and docility to whomsover provides them with the latest fashion ol moral sugar-plums; whereas, so far as my experience and Information troes, chil dren am tho most formidable literarv critics in tho world. Matthew Arnold himself has not so sure an instinct for what is sound and good in a book as any intelligent little boy or girl of ight years old. 1 uev jmlgo onsoiute- ly; they aro hampered by no compari sons or relative considerations, inoy annot givo chapter and verse for their opinion; but about tho opinion itseli there is no doubt. They havo no theo "ios; they judge in a white litrht. They havo no pn judices nor traditions; they oome straight from tho simple source of l fe. But, on tho other hand, they aro reallily hoeussed and oado morbid by improper drugs, and presently, no doubt, lose their appetite for what is wholesome. Now, wo cannot hopo that an army of hermetic philosophers or Mother-Gooses will arise at need ami remedy all abuses; but at least wo might refrain from moralizing and in struction, and, if we can do nothing moro, confine ourselves to plain stories of adventure, sav, with no ulterior ob ject whatever. There still remains the genuine literature of the past to draw upon; but let us beware, as wo would of forjrerv and perjury, of serving it up, as has been done too often, medi cated and modified to suit tho foolish dogmatism of the moment. Hans Chris tian Andersen was tho last writer of children's stories, properly so called; though, considering bow well married to his muso he was, it is a wonder as well as a calamity that ho left uo de scendants. GREEK WILL JioT IIAVE TO GO. I said that before I ended I would touch on tho question of classical edu cation, and I will keep my word. Even if literature is to retain a large place' in our education, yet Latin ami Greek, say the friends of orogres. will cer tainly havo to go. Greek is the gttind offender in tho eyes of these gentlemen. Tho attackers of the established course of study thint thak against Greek, at any rata, they havo irresistible argu ments. Literature may perhaps be needed in education, they say; but why on earth should it be Greek "literature? Why not French or German? Nav, has not a man of English speech imJels in his own literature of every kind of ex cellence? As before, it U not on any weak plttdings of my own that I rely for convincing the gainsayem; it is on the constitution of human natur itself. and on the instinct of solf-proservatlon inhumanity. Tho instinct for boauty is set in human nature, as surely as the instinct for knowledge is set there, or the instinct for conduct, or tho instinct for society. If the Instinct for beauty is served by Greek literature as it is seived by no oilier literature, wo may trut ;o the instinct of seli'.preservation in Keeping Greek as part of ourcuiture. We may trust to it for even making the study ol Greek more prevalent than it is now. Greek will come, 1 hope, to be studied more rationally than at pres ent; but it w.ll be increasingly studied as men inereasinirly feel the need in them for beauty, and how powerfully G eek art and" Greek literature can rve this need. Women will again study G eek, as Lady .Jane Gray did. I believe that in that chain of forts, with which the lair host of Amazons is engirdling the Enjf.isli universities, 1 find ih.it in the happy families of your mixed American universities out west. they sir.- studying it alreadv.

It Ins occured that they have ob served tms woiried state in some of their pupils and informed tlnj parents of it, before tho latter wore awaro of tho trouble. Tho frequent conferences which should be hold . between the teacher Mid parent aro impossible in our ordinary school system, which is so much the greater misfortune for the children. As a rule, tho better tho teacher the greater his de.siro to have a provision for tho needs of tho worriod children, our present rules being such as produce every year illness and low ered vitality nmong somo of tho little creatures. In privato ndiools there is opportunity to relievo tho children as may bo necessary. Tho testimony of teachers in these schools, who under stand their work on all sides, should bo of interest to every parent, as tho competent teachers m;;o it a part of their task to watch every pupil ami pre vent an outbreak of naughtiness, which usually means nervous distress, by a quick " change of occupation.

President Seelye says it is the unquestioned judgement of tho faculty i hat there has been a groat gain in regularity of attendance and stand ard of scholarship. No punishments aro prescribed. 'Ihe misbehaving stu dent is not sent away nor even shut out of tho recitation rooms, but no at tention whatever is paid to him. The system of government recently intro duced at Bowdoin comprehends a col lege court, composed of a student jury with a professor as president, to try and punish offenders. A full test of this innovation has not been made, but thus far it has worked satisfactorily. Harvard, also, has recently put into practice a scheme which gives the stu dent a voice in the deliberations of tho faculty. Professor Thwing says that tho experiments in this direction havo been so productive of good results that a standing committee will be appoint ed to receive whatever suggestions the students mar wish to make. It appears that the brain injury to school children from "over-study" is not really from too much study, but a worried state of mind while studying. On account of tho elactieity of child nature the evidences of incipient' brain trouble are not to be detected even by a physician, excepting while tho child is iu school. The recommendation therefore is that every school shall be visited by its modieai officer, who is to pick out tho "worried" onos aud direct measures for their relief. A pleasant story comes from Dallas county, Arkansaw. Some time ago, just, after a drouth, butter became, so scarce that the peoplo wero compelled to forego this almost necessary article of diet. Old man Reglin and his wife, Charity, had ever been proud of their table, and the scarcity of butter caused them great annoyanco. Tho old lady, however, had saved up ono "churnin'"" which she took great pleasure in work ing over, stamping with a fanciful print, and placing on tho table. Tho children wero taught not to touch it, any more than they would havo done a vase of flowers placed on the table for ornament. One morning, two neighbors, Wcbloy and Atson, came over to help Ileglin perform a piece of work. Mrs. Kegiin prepared for them an excellent breakfast, and when tho gue.sts sat down at the table, there was tho plate of butter, bearing an angel surrounded by a garland of roses. Webley understood the situation, and would not touch tho ornament, but At son was particularly fond of butter, and especially during the drouth, had mado quite a reputation as a butter water. Just after a blessing had been asked. Aton took a biscuit, tore it open, retiched over and with a slash" cut off the angel's head. The children looked at each other in astonishment, and Mr. Ueglin cleared her throat. Pretty soon Atson swept off tho angel's right wing and spread its pinions on his biscuit. By this time the children thought that tho timo for eating butter had come, and reaching out their knives, begin to dip in lightly. Kegiin, observing tho outbreak, said: Children, cut near tho surface." The children desisted, but when At son swept away the other wing, to gether with a rose, they reached out again. Children," says Reglin your mother wauU some of that butter for Christmas." When Atson left the table, Weblej remained near the door to hear any remarks that might be made. There was silence for some time. Finally Reglin said: "Charity, did you observe how that man AUoa dot into jour buttor".
