A MODERN LOVE STORY.
Notes Vroin The Diary of a Lady Tutor.
Tinsley's Magazine.
May 6th, 1880.—I am neither nervous nor
hysterical, but at this moment I am sorry
that I have mislaid my smelling-salts. A
rnan—a young man—said to bo "good-look
ing—has been admitted here into this house,
and is actually unpacking his portmanteau
in the room over my head! Aud this is a
boarding house for girl students: and he
has been admitted by Mrs. Williams, our
landlady and my old friend! I am afraid
that 1 shall sleep badly to-night and I have
five chapters of Koman history to prepare
for my class to-morrow. It was Jane who
said he was good-looking she took his port
manteau from the cab. Is this a matter
on which Jane is competent to give an opin
ion?
May 7th—I did sleep badly and my an
alysis of the motives which led Ciesar to
attempt the conquest %f the Tritons was not
so clear as I could have wished it to be.
But I am better now, for I navo heard the
whole story. The Keutleman, whose ar
rival and admission into this house last
night produced in me, and indeed in all of
us, such an extreme degree of astonish
ment, is Mr. Arthur Lindsay. It seems
that he has known Mrs. Williams ever since
ho was a boy at school and she says that
Bho feels like a mother to him. She is in
the habit of saying that sho feels like a
mother to us girls but that is a different
thing. I have known several young gen
tlemen since they were boys at school but
I don't feel like a mother to them, and I am
euro they don't feel like sons to me.
We heard all about it—I should say "him"
—at breakfast this morning. Mrs. Wil
liams was down first as usual, and Lola
Brown was down last as usual and Mrs.
Williams had to begin again to please her.
(If Lola wouldn't lie so lona in the morn
ing we should bo better friend3.) Mrs.
Williams says that Mr. Lindsay arrived
here at 10:30 o'clock last night from tho
East India docks, having come straight
from the ship Wellington (a good subject
tor an essay for my class—"Tho Tactics of
Wellington and tho Tactics of Wolseley,")
—of which ho is first lieutenanc He lived
with Mrs. Williams and her husband sis
years ago. before ho went to sea and ar
riving in London, hers was the first house
he thought of. Ho knew nothing of the
change that had come over her establish
ment that is to say he knew nothing of us.
We are "the change." There were no fe
male students when Mr. Lindsay boarded
with Mrs. Williams. Mr. Lindsay was as
tonished to hear of us wo wero astonished
to hear of Mr. Lindsay.
It seems that we were all astonished.
When Mr. Arthur Lindsay said that he
had come to stay with Mis. Williams, Mrs.
Williams said that it was impossible. She
explained to him the situation. She said
that phe now received only lady boarders
except one, who was a lady tutor, were
siudents of Queen Anne's college that all
of them were pretty (she told us that she
said "all") and thatit was certain neither the
parents of the giils nor the principal of the
college would be pleased to know that sh9
had admitted a gentleman as a permanent
boarder among Jthem. Lola Brown asked
what color Mr. Liindsay's hair was and I
asked Lola Browa if sho had finished her
French exercise.
Mrs. Williams, resuming after this inter
ruption, said Mr. Lindsay caught at the
word "permanent" almost before it was out
of her mouth, and said, "Oh, but I Bhan't
be permanent. I have only two months'
leave in nine weeks I must be on board
again. I need see nothing of the ladies,
and they need sec nothing of me and what
could possibly happen in nine weeks?"
Ethel Austin demurred to the first part of
the last sentence, and Lola Brown, said a
"great deal" could happen in nine weeks.
She said her Aunt Sarah had married her
Uncle George in six weeks aud separated
from him in three. Lucy Fair said that
Lola's Aunt Sarah and Uncle George ought
to have known better and Lola asked Lucy,
rather irreverently, as I thought, whether
her grandmotner was still alive.
"The end of it all was, dears," said Mrs.
Williams, "that I consented to take him in.
Yon see it is only nine weeks after all. and
will use the bedroom at the top of the
house and will use the small library for a
Bitting room. He will hike his meals alone,
and he will hardly be in at all during the
day. I shall have a wire-blind fastened
across the window of the study which over
looks the little room and von had better
I think say nothing about "Mr. Lindenv at
the college."
Mrs. Williams says that Mr. Lindsay is
better looking than when ho wont away.
May Ilth- Ought I to tell Miss Grindle?
Miss Grindlo, as principal of the college
and responsible to some extent for the sur
roundings of the students, uot only in class,
but at home, would, I am afraid, object
peiemptorily and decidedly to Mrs. Wil
liams' new boarder. She would lake it as
no excuse that Mrs. Williams had known
Mr. Lindsay "since he was a boy," and was
prepared to vouch for the gentlcmanline6s
of his conduct at all times and in all places.
Indeed, I am not at all sure that she would
not decline to listen to any reasoning on
the subject, but would bring matters to a
head at once, and give Mrs. Williams the
alternative of losing or retaining tho girls
and myself, and, with us, her lucrative con
nection with the college, by losing or re
taining Mr. Arthur Lindsay. But is there,
in actual fact, so far as myself can see any
danger to be apprehended from this gentle
man's remaining nine weeks among us? I
do not know. To bo sure, Mr. Lindsay
himself, expecting a negative answer, asked,
what conld possibly happen in nine
weeks?" Bnt I can't help remembering
Lola Brown's reply about the ill-considered
union of Let ridiculous Aunt Sarah and
Uncle George. Let me think, now, who
•we are here, and what quantity of possible
self-control and proper feminire dignity
there is contained among us.
I, Susan Finn, aged twenty-five, lady
professor of mathematics and ancient his
tory, and tolerably goodlooking, am cer
tainly safe. Miss Grindle has nothinc to
fear from me.
Mary Mervon, agedtwenty-three, student
of Queen Anne's College—pretty in a quiet
way, hard-working, undemonstrative And
reserved—is also, I think, perfectly safe.
Ph yes, yes, dear Mary is safe. She has
told me herself that the majority of gentle
men she has met are not attracted to her,
and that she herself uses no arts to attract
them. She says she is wholly wrapped up
in her work and I believe her. No.if there
trouble in this house it will not be witn
Mary.
Ethel Austin, student, aged nineteen.
JUnel is a nice, pretty, and attractive, but
a
«°od girl. Ethel says herself that
she likes fun and I know that her boy
cousins never think their holidays have
really begun until she has joined them.
But Ethel is not at all free with strangers,
aid would, I am convinced, do nothing
clandestinely. Any man who meets her
musthke Ethel, but if he intends love
making he must be open and honest about
it. But she is susceptible I am a little
fearful for Ethel. I will keep near to
Ethel.
Lola Brown, student, age seventeen.
Lola's a little rogue. She would flirt with
anyone. I am not sure that she does not
still keep up a sort of secret correspondence
with a male cousin who has been forbidden
her father's house and she shocked me
once in church by whispering that the
curate, a most exemplary young man, as I
believe, Was making eyes at her all through
his sermon. It is quite likely that Lola was
making eyes at the curate but from the
manner in which he has several times
spoken to moat Sunday school, I suspect
the curate of more taste and propriety than
to make eyes at her. Lola is most cer
tainly to be feared. Sho told
Mrs. Williams once at dinner that
she would marry any one over fifteen and
the way in which she uses those wioked
blue eyes of hers whenever we are out
walking gives mo reason to be thankful that
I am not her mother. I had to deprive her
•f her class in Sundiy school after the first
day's teaching for she discarded the para
ble of the Prodigal Son, which was the
subject of the lesson, and kept the little
boys in fits of laughter with one of her ab
surd stories about two cats called Borneo
and Juliet, which belonged to her aunt
Sarah. Should there ever be any reason to
regret the admission of Mr. Arthur Lind
say into this house. I fear that it will bo in
great part provided by Lola Brown.
Nevertheless, I will not tell Miss Grindle
at least, not yet. Nine weeks will soon
pass, and I will keep near to Ethel and
watch Lola.
May 13th—It is a week to-day since Mr.
Lindsay came into the house, and nothing
has transpired to induce me to alter my re
solve of not acquainting Miss Grindle with
the circumstances. We have none of us
seen him. Lola does not disguise her im
patience but I lose no opportunity of reprov
ing her.
May 15th—Lola Brown, as fato of her
own determination would have it, has been
the first of us to see Mr. Arthur Lindsay.
She met him on tho stairs when coming
down, more late than ever, to breakfast
this morning. Ethel questioned her eager
ly, and she vouchsafed tho following de
scription: "Light hair, 5 feot 10 inches,
and jolly, I tell you." At dinner this even
ing Lola appeared in anew necktie of ex
travagant color, which she was
bold enough to tell Mrs. William3 was
her "war color." To us in private
she makes no scruple of her intentions to
"go for" our gentleman boarder. Mrs.
Williams and I took her apart privately and
reasoued with her. We showed her what
was due to herself as a young lady of name,
position and tender years to the great col
lege of which she was a student to Mrs.
William's establishment, which, for the time
being, was her home, and to Mr. Lindsay,
whose affections were, perhaps, engaged
elsewhere, or who might be a gentleman
easy to be ensnared by girlish wiles. We
urged her to think of her aged grandmother
(her nearest living relative, alas!) and the
unfortunate nuptials of her aunt Sarah.
She seemed touched, and promised to put
away the flaming neck-handkerchief. But
we had no sooner ended than she ran to
the window, and looked down the street af
ter Dr. Dicks, who lives opposite, and
whom she declares to bo in lovo with her.
I asked her whero was her modesty, for
this gentleman has gray hairs and seven
children.
May 22d—Yesterday, for the first time
since his arrival, Mr. Lindsay made one at
our little 6 o'clock dinner party. The ar
rangement agreed upon the night of his
coming was that, whenever he did not dine
away, he should be served by Jane in the
little library, which, when at home, he uses
as a sitting-room. Breakfast he takes after
us, for he is generally a late riser, and he
is seldom at homo at our luvch hour iu the
middle of the day. But yesterdav it chanc
ed that he came in unexpectedly while wo
were at dinner, wanting his ojfn dinner in
a hurry and Mrs. Williams, hardly think
ing, as she afterwards said, what she was
doing, made a hasty and smiling apology to
us, that she had known Mr. Lindsay since
ho was a boy," and told Jane to request
him to step down and take dinner with us.
He came down at once, and was seated
next to Lola, who said after dinner that she
"would give three ^week's pocket money to
eavo had on her aesthetic dress—pale green,
with blue spots." Mr. Lindsay'was intro
duced to us all, and there was a momentary
confusion occasioned by our rising to bow
to him. Mr. Lindsay said
some polite commonplaces in a
pleasant, genial manner, and turned to bilk
with Lola, betwem whom and himself, he
said, there had already been an informal
introduction in another place. By and by
the conversation became general, and I en
deavored to obtain an opinion from Mr.
Lindsay on the relative merits of the an
cient and modem methods of naval warfare.
His acquaintance with the battles of anti
quity seemed I must say, a little imperfect,
and he was less interested by my account
of the part played by the Persian fleet iu
the battle of Thermopylae, than by Lola's
relation of an engagement with washtubs,
in which she, her brother Tom, and her
cousin Edward had once taken part on a
pond at the bottom of her father's garden.
Mr. Lindsay seemed almost entirely en
grossed with Lola. Mary Meryon took the
very smallest part in the conversation, and
didnot once address herself to Mr. Lindsay.
But I noticed that he looked at her several
times, and handed her the bread twice.
May 25th—During the geography lecture
at college to-Jay, Lola Brown, being asked
the height of the Chimborazo Mountains,
replied promptly, "five feet ten!"
May 29—Mr. Lindsay has dined with us
twice since his first appearance at our din
ner-table. He makes himself agreeable to
each of us in tuna and in this, I think,
shows both breeding and sense. Lola per
sists in it that he gives signs of being, as
sho vulgarly puts it, "gone upon" her but
beyond his seeming to bo always very much
amused by her stories, I don't see that she
has reason for claiming partiality in his
conduct to her. He and I get on most
pleasantly, and he borrowed my Grecian
history to gain a clearer insight intothe pro
ceedings of the Persian and Grecian fleets
at the battle of Thermopyhe. I am sure
there is not the least necessity for me to
speak to Miss Grindle.
May 30th—I am amused by Mary. She
sticks as closely to her books as ever sho
did, and seems as determined as always to
secure a high place at midsummer. But
away from lessons she is never tired of
bantering Ethel and Lola on the subject of
Mr. Lindsay. Ethel doesn't like it, because
she does liso Mr. Lindsay—at least, I think
so—and she is, I feel sure, one of those
girls who would nev«r suffer an affair of the
affections, however slight.to become a sub
ject of badinage. Lola, on the other hand,
is delighted, and adds suggestions of her
own to Mary's, which would give matters a
serious color, if one could be persuaded to
see a shade of the serious in anything to
which Lola was concerned. But I must
talk to Lola again, for I do not think that,
in such a matter as this, even jesting should
be carried too far. Of the threegirls, Mary
alone seems not the least fluttered by the
entry of this male bird into our little dove
cot. Lola says that Mary is "deep," but I
believe she is merely indifferent. Mary and
I, when alone, never talk of Mr. Lindsay.
But, then, we have always so many other
things to talk about.
June 6th—Mr. Lindsay is now a regular
attendant at our family table in the evening.
At first he made excuses—as that he want
ed dinner in a hurry, and the like but he
now obeys the bell as punctually as anyone
of us, and no longer thinks it necessary to
offer explanation or excuse for his appear
ance. I am bound to say that neither ex
planation nor excuse is looked for. I take
a curious interest in noting his manner in
addressing us. He talks to me as he talks
to MTB. Williams, quite without a hesitation
or circumlocution, and generally com
mences with a question. Maryandhe, when
they talk, are almost invariably engaged in
a brisk wordy duel. They spar continually
and only stop short of downright hostilities!
But I observe that he defers to her, and
generally manages to come off worst in their
rhetorical encounter. Also I notice that
Mary does not seem to be more excited
in talking with him than when she argues
withonyofus. To Lola, Mr. Lindsay speaks
with more than confidence. His'manner
to her is buoyant, gay.and almost presump
tuous. He addresses her as I conld fancy
him addressing a bosom friend of his own
sex. All his jokes are directed at her, and
he spares no pains in trying to draw her
out, that be may see her at her gayest,
when he speaks to Ethel it is a softer and
gentler tone, and his whole manner seems
changed. She also watches his conversa
tion closely, and brightenB sensibly when It
is addressed tohei. But her responses,
though cordial, have always in them some
thing of reserve.
June 8th—Lola is realy too foolish. In
the study this afternoon I picked up a
Elottinof
iece paper that had fcllen from her
pad, on which she had been mak
ing a variety of calculations relative to the
cost of furnishing houses, and in one cor
ner were some pencil memoranda, among
them being one to the effect that, "deal
topped tables, with mahogany legs, would
do very well for the first year." I am told
that she has secreted iu her bedroom a copy
of the Houso Register and has set a pencil
mark against an advertisement of "a small
unfurnished house, in a suburban
district, suitable for a young
married couple She says she brought
away the paper from her aunt Sarah, with
whom she took tea a few nights ago. For
myself I do not at aU approve of a young
girl's visiting a relative who was separated
from her husband in three weeks.
June 14- I do really begin to fear that
matters iu this house are assuming a some
what serious complexion. Mr. Lindsay now
makes a point of attending every meal and
Lola says she should be ill if he were to miss
dinner. I have had to get Mrs. Williams to
speak again to Lola but I cannot ask her
to speak to any one else, although a word
of counsel and advice is, I fear, needed else
where Less work is got through in the
study than was being done a fortnight ago,
although we are a fortnight nearer to the
examinations. Why is it that, within the
last few days, Mary seems to have avoided
me, while she aud Lola have morethan once
been on the verge of an open quarrel? Ethel
does not look at all well, and her usually
sweet disposition has undergr.no a visible
change. Mr. Lindsay has taken to fre
quenting the study, and has met Ethel and
Lola more than once in t' eir afternoon
walk. If he really has a preference for any
one of them, why does he not avow it? But
he is attentive to each, and, so far as one
may judge, to none more than to another.
Yesterday just as I entered, he left the
study, in which I found Mary alone. Mrs.
Williams and I have spoken together, and
both agree that it is well his leave will em
pire within two weeks. Still, there has
been, so far as I and Mrs. Williams
have seen, nothing that conld bo called love
making but though wo have discovered no
cause, the effects are uumistakablo. Mrs.
Williams will not speak to Mr. Lindsxy
without positive reason of complaint, but
ought not I to speak to Miss Grindle?
June 19—To-day Mr. Lindsay has taken
Ethel and Lola on a visit of inspection to
his ship Wellington. It had been arranged
that wo. should all go, but an unexpected
engagement with my class detained mo, and
Mrs. Williams (who, however very unwise
ly, as I thought, was unwilling to let the
visit be postponed) was confined to her
room with a sovero attack of neuralgia--a
comp'laint from which, I am sorry to say,
she is a constant sufferer. At tho last
moment Mary excused herself on the
ground that she was late with her English
essay. When Lola heard of Mary's refusal
she made use of a slang expression which
my brother, Charley is in the habit of em
ploying when skeptically inclined toward
anything that is told him. She ejaculated
Walker!"
June 18th—Lola, after coming home,
told me that she managed to get separated
from the others on board the ship, and
that while she was lost among "forecastles
and binnacles and things" Ethel and Mr.
Lindsay were alone together for an hour.
June 21st—I will tell Miss Grindle to
morrow. A scene occurred here this even
ing which spoke for itself that the present
state of things ought not to continue.
Ethel had said at breakfast that she was
going with a friend of her mother's to a
concert at St. James's Hall in the evening
and accordingly, at dinner, Mr. Lindsay
appeared with a handful of hothouse flow
ers, which he begged to be allowed to make
into a bouquet for her. Ethel had hardly
said, with a smile and a blush, that she
would be very pleased to acceptthem, when
Lola, without a word of warning, got up
quickly from the table, and ran out of tho
room. Ethel took the flowers and went to
the concert—Mr. Lindsay complimenting
her on her appearance as he handed her in
to a hansom*. Going to search for Lola, I
found her in her room sitting on a low
chair, with her feet on the dressing-table,
sobbing violently. I ought to have scolded
her, and did make the attempt, but she
cried so passionately that I was first obliged
to comfort her and dry her tears. By way
of rousing her I told her of an engagement
she had made with her auut Sarah for that
evening, but sho entirely refused to go out,
and was disrespectful enough to speak of
her aunt Sarah as an "old fool." It was
late before I brought her to a reasonable
frame of mind. Yes, I will certainly tell
Miss Grindle to-morrow.
June 22d—I had no sooner left Lola last
evening and returned to the study, than
Mr. Lindsay came to give me back the His
tory of Greece I had lent him. He stayed
for half an hour and we talked the whole
time about the battle of Thermopylae He
seemed to me more animated, earnest and
interested than I had seen him before, and
gave a most intelligent opinion on tho con
duct of Leonidas in that memorial engage
ment. On going away wo shook hands,
and he said that it was a genuine pleasure
for him to talk on any subject with one
whose mind was so well informed and im
pressionable.
I thought of this after he had gone, for
he seemed in what he said to have let a new
light in upon his own character. He has
always shown himself pleased to talk with
me, and he seemed at his best last night,
when wo talked uninteruptedly alone.
May it be that, while he enjoys a laugh
with Lola, he finds a higher enjoyment in
rational and intellectual converse? There
is a point in the character of Leonidas I
think I could make more clear to him. I
should like topursue the subject. I will
lend him my history of Greece again. It
would be a pity that ho should go yet. I
will not speak to Miss Grindle—at least not
until I have explained to him that point in
the character of Leonidas.
June 26th—It is nine hours since the
ceremony was finished but my hand still
trembles while I write that Mr. Lindsay
was married this morning, in the presence
of Mr. and Mrs. Williams, to—Mary Mer
yon!
Lola was right Mary is deep. For—sur
prise on top of surprise—this turns out to
be not a six week's love mash, bnt the com
pletion of an affair of seven years' standing.
They were engaged before ever he went to
sea and he came here never knowing whom
he was to find and they knew each other
the moment they met, when he entered the
room, that night he first dined with us!
Nay! she knew him before, when his name
was told to us by Mrs. Williams. And yet
not a word to any of us from either of them.
Joking with Lola, tender withEthel, earnest
with me about Thermopylae and Mary
silent all the while, eager only to finish
her English essay. And not even to ask us
to the wedding!—but perhaps that was kind.
Mrs. Williams, too, only to be told last
night when wanted as witness at the cere
mony! Mary, who kept her own counsel,
and when she did speak only jested with
Ethel and Lola, balancing their chances of
success, giving herself the humbler role of
looker-on—Mary is at this moment Mrs.
Arthur Lindsay.
I believe I was the fiist to offer my con
gratulations, and that I offered them with
becoming heartiness. Little Ethel followed
me, and if the task was anything of a hard
one to her, her manner did not show it.
Mrs. Williams has succumbed to excite
ment and neuralgia. Mr. Williams sits in
the lower regions, chuckling frequently
and under the stimulating influence of to
bacco, becomes communicative to Jane on
the subject of his own engagement to Mrs.
Williams.
Jane, prophetic after the event, takes
credit to herself for having long ago assured
every one that "this was what it was a-com
ing to."
Lola—foolish little Lola—has locked her
self into her bedroom, and is making strange
noises with the furniture upon the floor. I
have tried to reason with her from the oth
er side of the door, but she only answers
through the keyhole, between "her sobs,
that "she knew Miry was deep."
I am afraid that my sleep will be broken
again to-night, and (as happened, I think,
on the evening I made my first entry on
this matter) I hive to prepare for my Gre
cian history class to-morrow and I have
mislaid my smelling-salts again."
A
writer in tho.New Yoik Sun represents
the East as hoping that, with an Eastern
man in the White House, our shipping in
terests may receive the attention they de
serve. President Arthur is supposed to be
thoroughly alive to the importance of build
ing up American shipping.
There are 40,000 breweries in Europe,
'he-houses in England and Wales
the formidable number of 113,000, or one
in every forty, are devoted to the sale of
liquor in some form or another.
"The man must be, made, of east Iron,"
she said to herself. "And only an insignifi
cant little country doctor at that. It's per
fectly ridiculous! The idea of his visiting
Miss Herbert just because she has a mania
for charity and poor people! And he took
Lucy Yillarsdown into the woods to botan
ize after autuin flowers—the hateful school
ings I Aud he's going to join Mrs. Grace j's
Shakespeare society. I never was a blue
stocking, and I never will be. Let him
go!"
But Geralda couldn't contentherself with
this system of philosophy.. Dr. Dulany
was tho first man who had over resisted her
fascinations, and sho was determined that
he should be the last.
And she tossed her head, and froze up,
like a fair icicle, in his presence, and the
flinty-hearted fellow never seemed to
know it.
"A charming young man," said Mm.
Gracey —"so intollectual, so perfectly well
informed on every subject."
"So truly generous and good to thepoor!'
said Louisa Herbert.
"The most delightful companion in the
world," said little Lucy Villars, who was
developing into a dangerously pretty blonde.
"Oh, Geralda, if you could only hear him
talk about his home and his mother."
"Pshaw!" said Geralda, so short and
sharp that Lucy looked up, wondering what
was the matter.
Miss Granger was rather pensive that
evening. She had always regarded Lucy
Viliars as a child but, after all, she was
nearly seventeen, and undeniably pretty.
But what a fool Doctor Dulany would be,
to fling away his rich nature and rare ca
pacites on a thoughtless elf like Luoy, just
out of boarding-school!
"Aunt Susie," said she, suddenly, "I
think I should like to join a sisterhood, or
go into a convent, or something of that
sort."
"What?" said Aunt Susie, in dismay.
"I'm tired of all these Benseless balls and
parties," said Geralda, bursting into tears.
"My love," said aunt Susie, "you are not
well. Your nervous system is all run down.
We'll send for the doctor."
Doctor Dulany came just exactly like a
"human machine," as Geralda declared in
her anger, felt her pulse, asked half a doz
en conventional questions, and advisedear
ly hours and tonic.
I can't bear that man!" said Geralda
and she burst out crying.
"Tho poor darling is quite hysterical,"
said Aunt Susie. ''Never mind—good old
Doctor Holden is coming back next month
and he will understand your constitution!'
And then Geralda cried more bitterly
than ever, and Auut Susie was hopelessly
puzzled.
Doctor Dulany was at the hospital, next
day, just at twilight, and as he came into
the fever-ward a soft grey shadow glided
out at the other doorway.
"Who is that?" he asks, quickly. "Not
old Kate, nor yet Alice Evans."
''It's Miss Granger, sir," said the head
narse. "Alice has the neuralgia in her
face, and Miss Grauger would take her
place."
"Shemust not do it again," said Doctor
Dulany, with quiet authority. "I am not
quite sure ef the nou-contagious character
of some of these cases."
"She says, sir," declared the old nurse,
"that she wants to do good in the world.
But we was to be sure and nottell yon, sir."
Doctor Dulany smiled.
"There are more ways of doing good in
this world than one," said he. "And Miss
Granger must come here no more."
He nurried through the various wards
aud made such good speed along the lone
ly road that he overtook the gray, gliding
shadow at the entrance to the village street.
"Miss Granger," he said, "I detected
your identity at once."
"What of it?" retorted Garalda, almost
fiercely. "I supposed I hada right to enter
the Public Hospital so long as my uncle
pays taxes for its support."
Possibly," 6aid Doctor Dulany "but it
is my desire that yon will not come there
again."
"Is it, then, an offense to cross your
path?" indignantly cried out Gerald.
"Not in the least: but—"
"I know—I have known all along," went
on the girl, choking down the angry sobs
in her throat, "that you hated the eight of
me but you have no right actually to tell
me so! Oh, I um so wretched! Oh, I wish
that I wero dead!"
Doctor Dulany planted himself directly
across the path, so that Bho could neither
walk over, under nor around him.
"Miss Granger." soid he, "will you be
kind enough to tell me what you mean?"
"No!" flashed out the girl. "I wont!"
"Butyou shall!" quietly declared the
the doctor. "The reason that I did not
want you to enter the hospital, is that I
have an idea that some of those fever cases
partake of the typhoid nature, and—"
What then?" said Geralda. What have
I to live for, that I should shrink from ex
posing myself?"
"Everything!" said the doctor.
"Nothing!" said Geralda.
"Nevertheless," said Dulany, quietly, "I
forbid you running the risk."
"What is it to you?" she cried passion
ately. "If I dreamjd that you cored
whether I lived or died—"
She stopped suddenly, with crimsoning
cheeks. Had she said too much?
"I do care," said Doctor Dulany. "Very
much, indeed. In fact, had I not been
told that you wero a heartless coquette—"
"It is false!" said Geralda, hurriedly.
"I might even venture to say more," he
pursued, his eyes fixed intently on hei
face.
"Say it, then," she whispered, making
no effort to withdraw the hand which he.
had taken.
"Well, then," he returned, laughing, "I
lovo you. Is that definite enough?"
"And Hove you,"she answered. "Oh,
Doctor Dulany, you must havo seen that
long ago! But, tell me, when did you first
begin to—to care foi mo?"
"From the hour in which I first saw
you," said he.
And so our village coquette was conquer
ed, and surrendered at discretion: and, to
the surprise of all her friends, sho has
married the quiet young country doctor.
Scientific Motes.
Paint will not answer on walls if the pat
em of the paper is not prepared with sand
paper. See all the places ore sound,, then
procure a flat piece of cork, fold a piece of
sand paper around it and paperevery part to
make level, then give it a coat of patent
size when dry rub smooth .again. Then
mix the paint with gold size. The principa
thing in painting, varnishing or graining is
to have a Bound wail to work upon and as
smooth as possible.
To assay carbonates of silver or lead,
take tho mineral or quartz, pulverize it,
put it in a crucible or common clay pipe,
put in as much salt as mineral let it come
to a boil.' When it cools the
silver and lead will be in the
bottom, silver the lowest. To separ
ate the lead from the silver, put it into a
bone-dust cup and melt the lead will ab
sorb into the cup, leaving silver and gold
to separate the latter, boil in nitric acid and
this will leavethe gold.
Grease is fatal to all insect life. In
sects breathe by means of small pores on
their sides. Grease or oil that comes in
contact with the insects closes the pores
and stops the breathing. Mercurial oint
ment kills as much by the lard in it as by
the mercury—that is, so far as the vermin
are concerned, bnt not as to the animals
that licks it off from their bodies, so that
almost any oily or greasy application will
be destructive to insect vermin, if it is ap
plied where it will do the most good.
All kinds of burns, including scalds and
sunburns, are almost immediately relieved
by the application of a solution of soda to
the burnt surface. It must be remembered
that dry soda will not do, unless it is sur
rounded with a cloth moist enough to dis
solve it. This method of sprinkling it on
and covering it with a wet cloth is often the
very best. But it is sufficient to wash the
wound repeatedly with a strong eolation.
It would be well to keep a bottle of it al
ways on hand, mado so strong that more or
less settles on the bottom.

HOUSE AND FAKM.
Why Cream Rises.
Cream rises best and almost wholly in a
falling temperature. The rising is but slow
when the temperature ceases to fall. This
is because the cream globules are not as
£leofconductors
ood of heat as water and case
the milk. Hence, the latter cools
faster than the cream, and its weight is in
creased. When the temperature becomes
equalized throughout, the cream is so very
little lighter than the rest of the milk that
it rises very slowly. The movement of the
cream globules is caused by gravitation,
and they rise in the milk just as a balloon
rises iu the atmosphere. The larger ones
rise to the surface first, and the next in size
follow, the very smallest coming up last.
In some milk there are cream globules so
small that they,never rise, and they would
make very inferior butter if thoy did, that
is if churned by themselves.
Wheat ItiiHt.
A writer in 'tho New York Times says, in
regard to the rust fungus on wheat: "But
there is an effective means of fighting this
enemy whion should bo made available now.
This is the steeping of the seed in seme
protective solution by which toe spores of
the rust fungus upon the seed may be de
stroyed, and the sowing of those with the
Bowing of the seed be prevented. There
are several of these tolution*. Tho most
convenient are four ounces of sulphate of
copper in a gallon of water four ounces of
sulphate of soda in the same quantity of
water a strong brine of salt stale urine, in
which the decomposition has produced
abundant ammonia. With the first and
second it is advisable to scatter fine dry
lime upon the seed as it comes moist from
the solution. The seed is steeped in the
solution or liquid for six hours, until it
has been swollen and saturated. It is then
sown in tho usual manner, and, if neces
sary, dried, so as not to adhere, by expo
sure to air for an hour or two or by
mixture with some absorbent powder. With
the urine, plaster and not lime should
be used. This preparation is a very effec
tive safeguard against both rust and smut
by cleansing the seed of its pores or seeds."
Blinkers for Horses.
From "l'ho Horse and It's Owner."
I unhesitatingly condemn them as being
among the silliest of the silly devices
whereby man has contrived to lessen the
powers of the horse. The notion that
horses are guarded by them from taking
fright at alarming objects is utterly absurd,
the horse being nervously timid when its
senses are partially obscured, and daunt
lessly courageous when facing a known
danger. The horses employed on the
Midland railway wear no blinkers, and yet
they walk about among the screaming whis
tles, snorting and puffing engines, as com
posedly as if they were intheir own stables,
not even requiring to be led. To be con
sistent, the horse's cars ought to be fur
nished with stoppers, so as to prevent the
animal from hearing any Bound that might
frighten it. The only excuse for blinkers
that has the least sense in it is, that they
may possibly save the eyes of the horses
from the whips of brutal drivers. But as
no man who would flag a horse about the
head ought to be intrusted with a horse,
even this very lame defense breaks down.
Fat Turkeys.
There is profit in raising turkeys, if they
are marketed in a condition to hav:» tho ad
vantage of high prices. It pays to have
everything in prime order when prossntcd
for sale in the market, but in nothing is this
more important than turkeys. It is but a
short time in the history of a turkey from
the shell to the market, tay seven months.
After lh9 first few weeks they are hardy and
generally get their living on the farm from
the range on pastures and fields from the
insect tribes, many of which are injurious
to tho crops But from now they should bo
pushed and made plump and fat by extra
care and feeding. It is a sorry and disgust
ing sight to see lean, bony carcassea pre
sented in market, poorly dressed and worse
prepared. One feels sorry for the owner's
purse and for his enterprise. They are not
agreeable to the sight, nor are they really
fit to eat. As a consequence they are sold
at less than half the price that full fed,
plump, fat turkeys, which were neatly and
sweetly prepared, will command in any
market.
Teanksgiving, and even Christmas and
Ntw Year's, are but a few weeks hence,
when turkeys are in demand, and the de
mand is always for good ones. Now is the
time to commence full feed and careful
attention to them. In travel, it is noticed
there is a goodly supply on hand, and those
who wish to be amply rewarded for raising
them will have them in a condition so that
the lovers of good eating cannot refuse a
round price for them. Feed them often
and regular with rich food. Get them tame.
Get them fat. Dress carefully. Keep
them in proper shape. Then take them
proudly to market, and don't be ashamed to
demand a good price.
The Kighta ef Farmers' Girl*.
A great deal has been said and written
concerning the rights of farmers' boys, but
nothing about the girls. It is a common
thing for farmers to pay their sons fair
wages for their work, yet the daughters do
not receive a dollar from month to month.
Why should this difference exist between
the farmer's girl and the boy? The former
is quite as much entitled to reward for ser
vices as the latter. In truth, the farmer's
girl is the more valuable of the two. She
is expected in many cases to arise very
early, get breakfast, clean up the house,
and prepare the other meals required
through the day or if not, to largely aid in
these household duties. In addition, she
is looked upon by- father, mother and
brother to entertain company—to act as
hostess, at least to act as a creditable se
ond to the mother, and while she may be
the pride of the family, and regarded as a
sort of privileged character, yet much is
expected of her in ten thousand smaller
features of home life. Why, then, should
she not be encouraged with at least as much
pay as the boy? In addition to that, the
farm-house should be made as attractive
as possible—with a piano, plenty of books,
newspapers, and pictures cultivate a taste
in the girls for flowers. These features,
with a moderate amount of work, should
produce a happy, contented home life on
the farm.—Anon.
Notes on Killing Weeds.
Grass wad weeds of every description
growing in gravel walks may be extermina
ted the most expeditiously and cheaply by
the application of common salt in liberal
quantities. If one dose is not sufficient,
apply a second. Two applications of salt
will not only kill the weeds now growing,
but will prevent their springing up next
season. A barrel of salt, costing but a
trifle over a dollar, will destroy more weeds
in a gravel walk than a mm can kill in the
course of a week. A gravel walk entirely
free from weeds is highly ornamental as
well as useful, but its value and beauty are
both destroyed by the presence of weeds
and grass. Plantain is more effectually
eradicated by pulling it up with the bauds
after a heavy rain. It may also be destroy
ed by running a sharp spade an inch or two
below the surface of the ground. So de
stroy burdocks and mullein, it is advisable
to nut the stalks two or threo inches below
the surface, and to drop a handful of salt
on the portion of the root that remains in
in the ground.
A Happy Home.
From the German.
A pretty story about a German family dis
closes the secret of a happy home, wherein
joy aboundeth, though there are many to
feed and clothe:
A teacher once lived in Strasburg who
had hard work to support his family. His
chief jo\ in life, however, was in his nine
children, though it was no light task to feed
them all.
His brain would have reeled and his
heart sunk, had he not trusted in his heav
enly Father, when he thought of the num
ber of jackets, shoes, stockings and dresses
they would need in the course of a year,
and of the quantity of bread and potatoes
they would eat.
His house, too, was very close quarters
for the many beds andcribs, to say nothing
of the room required for the noise and fun
whioh the merry nine made.
But father and mothermanaged very well,
and the house was a pattern of neatness
and order.
One day there same a guest to the house.
As they sat at dinner the stranger, looking
at the hungry children about the table, said
compassionately: "Poor man, whata cross
yon nave to bear!"
"I? A cross to bear?" asked the father,
wonderingly "what do yon mean?"
"Nine children, and seven boys at that!"
replied the stranger, adding bitterly, "I
have but two, and each of them is a nail in
my coffin."
"Mine are not," said the teacher with de
cision.
"How does that happen?" asked the
guest.
"Because I have taught them the noble
artof obedience. Isn't that so, children?"
'Yes" cried the children. ''And you obey
me willingly?" The two little girls' laughed
roguishly, bnt the seven youngsters shouted
"Yes, dear father, truly."
Then the father turned to the guesi and
said, "Sir, if death were to come
in at that door, waiting to
take one of my nine children, I would
say"—and here he pulled off his velvet cap
and hurled it at the door—"Rascal, who
cheated you into thinking that I had one too
many?'"
The stranger sighed he saw that it was
only disobedient children that makea father
unhappy.
One of the nins children of the poor
school-master afterward became widely
known he was the saintly pastor Oberlin.
HUMOROFTHE MARCH.
Ifow tlits a Kissed (Jen. Puse lor the
Mississippi Itrlgude.
Frank n. Foote in the Philadelphia Times.
In the march up the Yalley of the Shen
andoah the abundance of raspberries offer
ed substantial repasts that did BO much
good. One evening a vast field of them
attracted our attention and the whole di
vision of Anderson were stopped perforce,
because there were none left in the ranks
to move on, and went into"fill up." Gen
eneral Wiloox face—cautiously remarked
to one of his colonels to "turn out jour cat
tle to graze," and when he thought they had
a rurteit ordered the colonel to "drive on
his cattle." Passing through the town of
Charlestown, Vs., the ladies of the place
in their fervor caused General Posey to dis
mount and "kissed him for the Mississippi
Brigade" and would not let him off lightly.
Sharpsburgh was reached and a reht given
us for several hours, which some of us oc
cupied in reveries of tho battle fought
there nearly a year previous. While sitting
on a porch of a cottage with a comrade a
door behind us wes partly opened and a
lady quietly asked us if we
did not wish for something
to eat. Assenting, we were told to
go through the gate to the rear of the
house, so as not to attract much attention,
which we did. The lady soon appeared
with bread, milk and butter, anda delicious
lunch it was. After disposing of it we
thanked her for her kindness and started
away. She called us back and said, in a
quiet, dignified manner: "I have given free
ly to you men such as I have to give, but I
assure you it is not done for any sympathy
for your case, for it is one I abhor and de
tost, but because 1 thought you were tired
and hungry. I hope to see the Union pre
served and pray it may be. without any
more battling, for I havo dear ones in the
Union army fighting for its preservation."
The quiet dignity and patriotism of the
lady wade a deep impression on me, one
that I shall never forget. Ono evening,
while quietly trudging along near Betry
ville, an aged negress, leaning on a fence,
put the query to us:
"Is dere any more sojets to hindyonn's?"
Replying in the affirmative, she broke
out again: "Fore God, I nebber seed so
many people afore. Tree days dey've biu
passin', and now here's more. Jes think,
all dese people iu de wnrl, and dey's all
got mammies."

Each is supposed to go over his ronte five
