T was over. The com? pany had gODe. Stv eral miles away sped the train on which the bridal couple had de? parted. Miss Ant-c line Briggs was Mrs. Lyman Ryder, and Mr. Lyman RyJer was presumably the hap? piest of men. Angeiine's mother, who was practical, was sorting out the borrowed dishes; her father was return? ing chairs to the neighbors in the back of the old blue cutter (there was early ?now this year); the "help"' was dispos? ing of cake-crumbi and coffee-grounds. There was nobody left to talk it over 'but Aunt Susan Briggs, spinster, tall and thin, with short-sighted eyes be? hind ?"?lasses and corkscrew curls, and ina's cousin, Fannie Morgan, from PeltODvUie? petite and plump, with bright, dark eyes an 1 wavy blonde hair. The wintry sun fell through the window on its soft yellowness. It had beea a morning welding. "Ah, well!" Aunt Susan sighed (Aunt Susan was sentimental). "To me it is he snatching of the tender buds of womanhood by the rough, the heedless hastia of men!' " sai'I Fanny, vaguely. It crossed her mind that Adeline had not been snatchel, exactly, inasmuch as Mr. Ryder had been attentive for some six months, an 1 that Angeline was not exactly a bud. But the bud she held in her haul was uppermost in her thoughts. That hand some Mr. Fenton had had it in his but? tonhole, but he had given it to her. What pretty thing had he said about her cheeks rivaling it? He had beeu anxious about the length of her visit at Uncle Briggs's, too, and rejoiced that it was ?ndelnite. Couldn't she be persuaded to stay over the nineteenth' There- was going to be a club dance then. Oh, she must stay for if "Did you notico Mark Featon." Aunt Susan demanded, with a suddenness which made Fanny start, pink to her fluffy hair. Notice him '. She was conscious that abe hadn't done much but notice him. She was guiltily aware of it. "Ye es. He's nice looking," she faltered. "?'le bas a heart history, poor young man!" ssid Aunt Susan, in tones of com? passion. "How well I remember the painful t-rcuiustances! He was desper. ateiy in love with your Co isin Angelino at one period. His entire happiness seemed bound up in her. He fairly haunted tlie house; his attentions were continuous and untiring; he was hope? lessly infatuated. But Angeline was firm ; even at that time I think her maiden heart was tiirain?? toward ?Mr. Ryder. She dismissel Mr. Fentcm, kindly but finally. The poor young man's heart was crushed. It was more than he could besr even to remtin when- he must see her, meet her, ami ht* went to the far west, ami has only recently returned. I have tiesrd that time has in some degree healed his wound ; I have even heard a report of bis possible marriage. But I cannot believe that his early love is for? gotten. He witnessed the marriage of his old love with seeming calmness, but his iuward Mflsria**** were undoutclly severe. My true sympathies are with him." Mrs. Briggs was in tbe ?loirw-y, her hands under the gingham apron which covered her blac!< silk. "I plum forgot to send some of the ca'reup to old Mis' Beebe/'she declare I. "I promised her I'd send some by Elizi. Yoir uncle's just made his last trip with the cutter, Fsony, and he's clean tuck ere 1 out. You just slip on your things and drive up to Mis' Beebe's and take that cake, won't you? She'll be set on it. It's right down by the old tannery, the Beebcs'." Fanny went. If she looked rather flushed and dazed as she went up stairs to change her pink cttshraere for a brown flannel, and if then- was a faint trace of t-aars about her pretty eyes when she came down, nobody sax it, certainly not Au nt ?>u?*u, who was gating pensively at the spot where Mr. Ryder had promiseJ to take Angeline for better or worse. **" Aunt Briggs gave her the cake, all the four kinds in a paper box, and Uncle Briggs tucked her into the bluo cutter, * and she jingled down the snowy road. The sun shone daailingly on it? white stretch. There were glinting pointing from roofs and branches, crisp sound of bells far and near, geline's wedding day was n fini But F?nny?Fanny was far froia ci ering it. She was ashamed, heartily ash: of the state cf mind she found herst she was glad her mother, for ins would never know it. To have become so?so?well, so up with a young man on a first slig quaintance as to be really taken a regularly down-hearted, at learn Rut, oh, dear! that was exactly ii was so queer, so incredible! Angeline? Why, she should have certain, if Aunt Susan hadn't told that Mr. Fenton was possibly four as old as Angeline, not more. "Well knew it was not infrequent, a y man's being in love with somebody or ?ess his senior. But Angeline? Faunic recalled geMne, in her blue-satin wedding-drt plain and matter-of-fact Angeline, her small eyes and angular shou blades, her high color and higher cr. bones. Angeline resembled her ? Susan. In love with Angeline? S seemed ; and her repeating the phi bewilderedly, over and over to he couldn't alter tbe fact, either. And going to be married! It was that brought the indignant color to I ny's cheeks and made her lips treml little. Engaged ! Then what right had had to do, to say, a hundred things ? beg her to stay to that dance ?to her that rosebud? Had he been mal fun of her? The sunlit fields before her loo blurred through her helpless tears. Somebody's footfalls, crunching 6now, took her attention at the i ment. "Oh, Miss Morgan!" an cnerg voice called. "I hadn't the least ide is it really you? Won't you give m lift. Miss Mor - "Oh!" said Fanny, faintly. She stopped the horse, irresolut? an?! Mr. Fent?-*n was in at her side ii breath, and tucking the robe carefi about her. He was gay and imiliag, with 1 handsome face reddeued by the wiud, '?I've got out of my wedding finery realy, you see, and was o.I for a tram; He bad on a corduroy suit and top-boo and carriel a gun and bag. "I'm goi to see about those squirrels over in i east woods. Do you like squirrels, M Morgan? If I have any luck, I'll be glad to bring you a pair!" "Thank you. I should not care them," said Fanny stiffly. She kept her eyes rigidly on Bill, check-rein. "I am sorry," Mr. Fenton murmure, but he did not show the immediate a pr?dation of the snub which Fan could have wished. "Waat a famoi driver you arc. Miss Morgan!" he sal merely. "You're used to it?" Fanny bowed a c->ld assent in silenc Sill her companion's high spirits we undampened. He chatted on brightl bending toward her, his eyes?they we j wonderfully magnetic eyes?upon h own. Fanny's hands trembled on t lines. What couhl she do or say when 1 looked at her ?ike that? She felt a wil regret that Aunt Susan had told he They might have enjoyed themseUes s: fl/ins* down this long road. Sue woul almost rather not have known it?n ha**e believed it She was warm an confused, and. almost happy; she wi ashamed to realize, in spite of ever thing. "What a day! perfection," Mr. Fei ton was saying. "I'm so glad you ove j took me. You looked terribly lonesom? ' and now you're not, you know," he d | clartid, laughing. "Let'i talk over th ? wedding; that's the proper thing to d for weeks afterward, isn't itf Wont o well, ditlu't it? Ho.v g?iod the break fast wtt?! Ail I n.'ver M* Miss An-*e line?Mrs. Angeline?look better. D you know, I bave a distant cousin, Mar Fentou's his name, who was rather at tentive to Miss Brigg??oh, ten yeai ago or so! He's a terrible fellow, Mark He's what they call 'clus,' you know; he' extremely foul of making money and ol keeping it?his chief talent lie? in keap iug it. I believe that fellow would dc anything for money. I'm candid, yoi see, though he is a relation. Well, ] think his attentions to Miss Briggs were a business speculation ; we all believe 1 it. She has quite a settlement, you know; ' and she's thrifty and .sensible, an?! an economical housekeeper. Mirk realised her good points in that direction, and he thought he couldn't do better. You should have seen them together, Morgan; the whole town used to laugh, Miss Briggs was so tali and broad an?l ruddy-faced, and Mark so short and ? pale and thin; we called them the long and short of it. Well, his wooing wasn't lengthy, an<l ende?l for rather a shock? ing cause. He weut West to go into business, and he discovered somebo ly ' out there who was a little richer and a i little more economical than Angeline ? , so we supposed?and he married her. I He was back hire last month oa busi? ness, but he didn't bring his wife. I don't think Miss Briggs grieved; she's I too profoundly practical. And Mr. Ryder stepped in after awhile, you know (??and a rast improve ment he was on Mark, too. He's good-hearted at if he isn't brilliant. It's a piece of history that we've always laughed i told it to amuse you, Miss Morgan; why don't you laugh?" "I will?I'm going to," 1 gasped. But she didn't. She stared a shaggy robe Mr. Fenton had pullt to ber elbows, in a bewildered effo comprehend even approximately Susan's shortsightedness and inacc and lack of memory and remar powers of imagination. But she signally failed. It was by taking Aunt Susan's sentiments romantic tendencies into careful ace that, sometime afterward, she was to arrive at a partial understands the feat. -> Mis' Beebe's cake was delivered ii course of time, but the blue cutter taken an extra turn in tbe interim, gone rather slowly part of the wa that. And by the time it got back to I Briggs's barn, Fanny bad somehow got to promise not only to stay ovei the dance, but to go sleighing the da; and straw riding the next week, to accept the squirrels if Mr. Fe ever went after any. He didn't go day. "It was strange, Sarah, the mista ms'le at Angeline's wedding," said . Susan to Angeline's mother, some w later. "I mistook that young Mr. F ton?Frank, I believe he Is called - his cousin Mark. Not that there is least re-iemblance. Dear me! it seem** arc to have another romance in this c nection, Sarah.

Any one who visits a zoological gar den or menagerie where carn?vora sr< kept will notice one remarkable fact? the lions, tigers and other beasts of pre* are all wide awake in the day time and do their sleeping at night. This is quito contrary to their custom In a state ol nature, for then they sleep the hours ol daylight away and hunt for their dinners at night. This change in their habits is the result of their change of life. While in captivity they are properly fe I at regular interval?, and in the daytime; in a state of nature they are oblige 1 to forage for themselves, and must do so at night, for a lion, tiger or hyena stalking about in broad daylight, looking for his dinner, would have an excellent pros? pect of going hungry.

X //~"V "r"E8,these rubbers look well? hand-oroely made and shiny, but they are not going to last me, good as they look, more than a few day?. I tell you, the rubbers I used to buy twelve or thirteen year? ago were rubber? that would out? wear three or four pairs of the best you can buy now," so ?peaking as he fitted a pair of new rubber? to hi? feet, the old gentleman brought first one foot down and then the other firmly, handed the quiet clerk the dollar asked, and then raising his umbrella he went out arm m arm with the Star writer. "I know what I am talking about," he added, aa we went down the ?trcet. "My father und his father before him were in tho rubber business and I have a pair of one of the first pure and simple rubber shoes ever made. They are a dull rusty red and about as brittle now as glass, I guess, for they have stood up, unused, as a curiosity since 1840. Now, young man, the fact of the existence of a milky juice in many plants, which flows from them when their tissues are injured, is a fact that has bc-en familiarly known from time immemorial. It is, however, really only a recent matter of discovery that this particular milky julC3 of the rubber tree (siphonia elastic?) was of any real economic value to man. It was not until the expedition ot the French academicians to 8outh America in 1735 that it? utility and nature was made known to Europe by a momoir published upon it by M. de la Conda mine. This notice excited little or no attention. Then again subject? of this kind were again called up in 175J by M. Fresncau and in 17?*>8 by M. Mac quer. It was so little thought of by economical man. however, that not until l?'.t'l and 1808 did it even get a notice in Great Britain. Then it came there in small pieces, dark reddish lump*,, which wore used for rubbing out bUck Uni pencil marks and that gave it the name of rubber, which it wear?, though tho native name in South Amcri'i, where most of it comes from, was theu and is now 'caoutchouc' "By 1820 the substance was molded inte waterproof boot? an?l shoes, but the color of the material was so disa? greeable that no one liked to wear it ?n? icas literally obliged to. But along by 1830 Charles Goodyear began to experi? ment at Pniladelphia on the employment of 'gum elastic,' as we also called It then, ?o as to fit it for general use by a particular uitric acid process, which he so perfected in 1833 that he had about ?olved the problem, and by 1833 he had rettled the difficulty and succeedod in vulcanizing orebonizing India rubber by means of sulphur. He kept improving ' his processes and took out over sixty ! United States patents before he died in j 1860. "Well, the result of this work of | Goodyear was to make the rubber boots, shoes and coats at once popular and , sightly articles of wearing gear, aud the demand was suddenly increased and has been steadily increasing ever since, for a i supply of the raw material. To give I you some idea of the jump which it made then in 183 ) only 50,000 pounds of uatural caoutchouc was importe! inta 1 the whole market of Great Britain; In 1842, or about two years after, Good year had produced a clean, ?hiny black shoe, the British market called for 800, 000*pouod?, aud to-day the amount has prodigiously increase! over theie figure* j not only in Great Britain, bit Um j United States ami all the rest of the l civilized world; this immense demnai I of thoasands an 1 thousands of tons aa? ! nuallv for every rairkot on the face of 1 the earth. What the whole aggregate? is ; I dare not say. This demand has set all : the natives of India, of Madigascar, of | South America, of J.iva ami of Central ! America and the Iudian archipelago hard j at the work of tapping the rubber forests i of their native lands. "No, I believe that we have fully reached tho maximum limit of raw rub? ber supply, that it will never be any greater and we shall be luck,* if it doe* not steadily grow leas. But we have not reached tha full limit of domnn I. More boots and shoe? will tic calle 1 for every year, and we shall have them sent to u? cast thinner and thinner until th : ?ham will declare itself to the dullest buyer. What we will do then I don't : know. Perhaps some ioventive genius 1 will find a substitute. "A rubber c imp In one of the South , American or Indian district? put me in ' mind somewhat of a maple sugar grove , as it is worked in Vermont ?>r Ohio, only everything about tho place Is wilder, darker and ru?ler. The native* dig out 1 a rude trench or hole at the bot of th* fibber tree, which ia not a latge troc, I never much larger than ten to twelve i inches in diameter and fifty or sixty feet ? high. They then make an in? aion in the trunk of this tree, which u just about the same cut that a pine tree cut for resin down in N *rth Cuolina exhio its. , "Tha caoutchouc, when la th? tissue? of the tree, is fluid like that of th? but it coagulates so quickly w drops down into the earthen tren pared for its reception that notb capes by filtration down into the and in this receptacle, as it runs fr tree, it forms a solid miss similar ternal character to vegetable all of a rusty or a brownish or a j red color. It is dense and hard, may be by proper manipulation out into a flat sheet so as to look side of leather.

"Of course, the pure rubber i< adulterated e7en in the forests then by the shrewd natives and taskrai who run in (he sap of many othei dred trees, which in themselves i little or no value, but which rudely gamate with the genuine sap. "People often ask why it is tha old rubbers are never nf any use they arc n?it made over into new c into a sort of rubber shoddy, per The reason is that when rubier is raised to a temperature of 150 d( Fahrenheit, and to which temp-rat goes in the process of manufacture boots and shoes, a change takes pi? its adhesive substance which on co does not recover the primitive prop of caoutchouc, ami the rubber made up can never be r?*malc sue fully."?Washington Star.
