CHAPTER L
INTRODUCTORY.
SlIEN I was a
child I often
thought that
nature made a
mistake when
she brought me
into the world
It always
seemed to me
that I was out
of place, and
from my earli
est remem
brance I was
made to feel
that I was in
the way of
other people,
and that I was
a useless thin"
whose presence was tolerated because
it could not be avoided. On one occa
sion when I was quite small, and when
I was worse discouraged than usual, I
asked my father if he didn't wish I was
a kitten, and when he asked why I
thought he should wish that, I said:
""Because then you could drown me like
they do kittens and get me out of the
way." I really felt then that it would
eurely be a great relief to my people if
I should die, or get drowned, or break
ay neck; and frequently I wished, in
all earnestness, that some such circum
stance would happen to me.
I never was a favorite with anybody,
and I never could make friends. Why
such was the fact I was never able to
understand. I'm sure I tried to please
everyone with whom I came in contact,
and I exerted myself to the utmost to
fain their good will. I was docile, kind
and obliging to a fault, and a more self
sacrificing creature I am certain never
lived. I made it the great study of my
whole youth to devise ways and means
for pleasing others, and I would at any
time gladly inconvenience myself if by
60 doing I could serve the interest of
some one else.
Yet, with all my self-sacrifice and
all my willingness to favor others, I
remained friendless and unloved. The
favors I rendered people were accepted
as a matter of course, and I verily be
lieve that if I had given up my head to
Bave the life of any one of the people I
Juiew, I would not even as much as
"nave been thanked for my pains. Those
who would have known of the sacrifice
might, perhaps, have thought I had
done very well, but I'm sure the act
would have created no serious comment.
In my efforts to please, to make friends
and to win words of praise I failed com
pletely, and in spite of all I could do 1
was made to feel more and more pain
fully as the years went by my utter
uselessness in the world.
If my mother had lived it would all
have been different. I should have had
one friend, at least, and what a comfort
that would have been in my loneliness
and isolation! What a world of happi
ness I should have found in a mother's
iovel Then, perhaps, she might have
caused others to love me I used to
. think of that when I was uncommonly
depressed and sad, and many long night
hours 1 lay awake in my dark garret
loft weeping for the loss of one I had
. never known my mother.
I loved my father in spite of his neg
lect of me, and I tried in every way to
make him understand my feelings, hop
ing to win some expression of love from
liim. When I was just a little "tot" I
watched for him when he came home
at evening, and often, when I could
muster up sufficient courage, I stole up
to him and kissed him, then shrank
away feeling that I had committed a
grave offense. I do not think my father
EE PUSHED ME A WAV FROM HIM.
was pleased with such attentions from
me, for while he never openly resented
it, his face would take on a frown, and
he would shrug his shoulders in such a
vray as to make me feel that he would
rather have me stay away from him.
My father had married again soon
after my mother's death, and he bad a
second daughter two years younger
than L My sister was a very pretty
child, at least every one said she was,
and my father was exceedingly fond of
her. Sometimes, sitting unnoticed in a
corner of the room, I vatched him as
he fondled and caressed her, playing
-with her curls or gently tweaking her
cars, and I wondered then what I could
do to win such attentions to myself.
Once or twice I left my corner and,
stealing forth, attempted to seat myself
on my father's other knee in the hope of
sharing his attentions with my sister.but
he pushed me away from him, and I
slunk back to my seat with a deeply
wounded heart, feeling a tinge of jeal
ousy of the favored child.
I don't think my father could hare
sver felt much love for my mother,
5
1 A if
Such, at least, was the impression I
gained as I grew up. I never heard
him speak of her, and if anyone men
tioned her name in his presence it
seemed to disquiet him. It appeared to
me that any remembrance of her was
extremely unpleasant to him, though
why it should be 1 was unable to com
prehend, for I'm sure she was a most
excellent woman and loving wife. Such
was the impression I gained of her from
our old colored cook, Aunt Mary, who
had known her from childhood up to the
day of her death.
"Dar neber libed a better 'oman an'
what yo' ma was," Aunt Mary said to
me time and again, "an' der neber will
lib a better 'oman if de worl' stan's a
millyun y'ahs. She was de kindes'
hearted an'de best-naturedcreatur eber
I knowed, an' if eber der was a Chris
tian pusson on dis yearth she was dat
pusson."
As I grew up I tried to discover from
Aunt Mary some information regarding
my mother's married life, but on that
point she was singularly reticent She
was ready at all times to sin? the
praises of "Misses Marg'et," but not a
word had she to say regarding her mar
riage to my father and the short life
they lived together. Once when I pcr
severingly pressed her for an answer
to the question, whether or not my
mother was a happy wife, she said:
'"Tain'tde place ob a o'o no 'count
niggah like me to be tellin' tales an'
mixin' my gab 'long o' odder folks'
business. Yo' mudder's done dead an'
gone, chile, an' I'll warrant she's happy
now, 'ca'se ef anybody eber went to
jine do fol' of de Lamb she sho'ly did."
That was the extent of my informa
tion, but vague as it was it served to
impress me more firmly with the belief
that my mother's marriage was an un
happy one, and that my father never
loved her. My impression may have
been false, but it seems to me even now
that if my father really loved the
mother he must have had some love for
the child.
My stepmother was never kind to me.
She never addressed me except to scold
or find fault, and besides burdening me
with work beyond my years and
strength she often beat me most cruelly
on the least provocation. I soon came
to fear her so much that a 6ightofher
was sufficient to set me trembling from
head to foot. I think she found real en
joyment in seeing me suffer, for when
she turned her little black eyes on me
and saw me quaking with fear a
thin, wan smile played over her sharp
face, the nearest approach to a pleased
expression I ever saw in her features.
As my fear of her grew from week to
week her loathing and hatred of me in
creased in equal proportion, and before
I had known her a year I learned to
think that she would not only be glad
to see me dead, but would willingly end
my existence with her own hands if she
dared do it. I suppose I judged my
stepmother too harshly, but I was only
a child, and she had made such an im
pression on my mind, and I was not to
blame for entertaining it.
My father was exceedingly fond of
my stepmother, and he never tired,
seemingly, of trying to please her. lie
strove to gratify every wish she ex
pressed, and, besides catenng to her de
sires himself, he plainly held to the idea
that every one else should find it a
pleasure to do so, too. lie appeared to
be very happy with her, and often, in
my childish way, I wondered how he
could be, when I saw so little in her
that was calculated to call forth love or
admiration.
CHAPTER
MY SISTER AND L
One thing that used to cause me a
great amount of worry was my name.
My mother had selected the name for
me and it was very pretty, and if peo
ple had only used it complete I should
have been satisfied. But no one did
that except Aunt Mary, and instead of
being called Agnes I was simply Ag.
Somehow the short, crabbed abbrevia
tion always impressed me with the
tnougnt oi tne little space I occupied in
the affections of others; and it was also
suggestive of the fact that in whatever
people had to do with me they wished
to be as brief as possible. My sister,
whose name was Mary, was often
called .Maggie, but no one ever thought
of calling her Mag, and yet that
wouldn t have been near so unpleasant
as Ag, because it is not so scrimped and
pinched, and so void of sentiment
1 eruaps it was the contrast between
my sister's name and mv own that
made mine so distasteful. I remembpr
that I used to think Maggie very pretty,
ana i always associated it with a hpun
tiful, accomplished vounz ladv lovprf
ana petted by everybody, while Ag al
ways seemed adapted to a great, coarse,
awkward gawk, Umorant and nnlnreA
The idea was a mere fancy, of course,
out it was born out of mv snrronnrt.
ings, and it took a strong hold on my
mina ana l could not rid mvself of it
I was envious of my sister. It was no
doubt ungenerous of me to feel so, but
I could not help it She was loved nnrl
"made over" by everyone, and I felt
that it was unfair that such a dis
tinction should be made between two
sisters when there was no reason why
it should be, I envied her the kind
words, caresses and other attentions
she received continually, and sometimes
I felt bitter toward her because of it
While I knew she was not to be blamed
for being loved, yet I thought it cruel
of her to complacently accept atten
tions that ought to have been shared
between us. It seemed to me that U
were in her place I should refuse to be
petted and flattered while she was
neglected.
From , the first my stepmother made
all the distinction possible between her
daughter and myself; and my father, I
am sorry to say, was quick to follow
her example. Any little action on
Mary's part which was cunning or af
fectionate commanded great attention
and was talked about and commended
as though it was the most wonderful
thing imaginable, while the same ac
tion on my part would have met with
a heartless rebuff and I would have
either been roundly upbraided or re
ferred to as "smarty," a term, by the
way, which was invariably applied to
me whenever I ventured to say or do
anything cunning.
In the matter of personal appearance
I don't think there was a marked dif
ference between my sister and myself.
I think we were both fairly good look
ing, and if any difference existed I
think it was in my favor. Yet father
and stepmother, and, in fact, everyone
else, pretended that there was
the greatest difference and that it
was all to my disadvantage. Even
traits of character that we possessed
in common were given a different def
inition, being considered laudable in
her and pernicious in me. So with per
sonal appearances. What in her were
considered as charms were In me looked
upon as defects.
Mary and I were both quite positive
in our views. In her case that trait
was commended, because, as they said,
it showed firmness of character; while
with me it was condemned, because it
denoted a hateful stubbornness. We
both liked reading, a fact whicht as far
as she was concerned, was noted with
pleasure, since it showed a love of
learning; but which on my part denoted
laziness. And so it was thrnnrrh tv.o
hole catecorv. She wasalwnrs rio-M-
I was always wrong. That which was
commended in her was condemned in
me.
Our hair was alike in color, lenrth
and texture, yet she had auburn locks,
v:le 1 had simply "red wisps" she
as "auburn-haired," I was "red
eaded." In eerv particular wbpro
there was a likeness between us it was
spoken of in her case as a charm, whilo
with me it became a hideous defect.
These things, of course, were mere
trifles, but they were enough to make a
sensitive child very miserable, notwith
standing.
In spite of the vast differenee made
between us, and the feeling of jealousy
that sometimes rankled in my breast
oecause oi it I loved my sister dearly,
and did everything1 that I had the power
to do to make her love me in return.
For a time she seemed to be very fond
of me, and often when I wept in loneli
ness .and sorrow she came to me, and,
putting her arms about me, kissed me
and took away that feeline of desola
tion that was sometimes so heavy on
my heart. Uut that was when she was
very young and before her mother had
instilled into her mind the principles of
her own.
My stepmother made it a point to im
press her daughter with the idea that
though we were sisters a wide gulf lay
between us, and that her life and mine
lay in widely separated grooves. This
teaching, persistently pursued, had its
effect in time, and gradually my sister
and I drifted farther and farther apart,
a chasm across which we could never
clasp hands, opening wider and deeper,
day by day, at our feet
Mary grew to look upon me as a be
ing inferior to herself and as one not
worthy of her consideration. The little
love she had held for me died out of her
heart, and she had neither sympathy
nor care for my sufferings and heart
aches. 1 he change in her was not so
gradual as to escape my notice, and
many were the tears I shed and many
the hours of agony I experienced as I
watched her love slippmcr from me and
knew there was none other to lean on
for sympathy.
Oh! what would I not have riven
for the power of retaining my sister's
affections and of drawing her closer to
me and making her feel for me as I felt
for her! What sacrifice would I have
not made to retain the little love, scant
though it was, which she had given me?
" hat sacrihce, in short, did I not make
to that end? I willinirlv crave nn to her
the best of everything willingly con
sented to her having all the new
dresses, the jewels, the musical instru
ments, and in fact all the beautiful and
desirable things that came to the house.
Of course in such self-sacrifices I made
a virtue of necessity, since she would
nave had all these things, anyhow; but
it was a virtue, nevertheless, for lovinc
such luxuries as I did it required a great
eaort oi will-power not to covet them
not to feel that they should be in part
mine.
Furthermore. I made mvself a servant
for my sister, and was ever ready to ad
minister to her wants I would do any
service, no matter how menial, if there
by she could be favored. I would deny
myself any pleasure or comfort, if by
so doing her pleasure was augmented.
I abased myself at her feet in short,
and all in the hope of retaining her
love.
Yet my sacrifices availed me nothing.
No matter how I denied myself for her
sake, Mary thought I was only doing
my duty. No matter how I abased my
self for her aggrandizement, my sister
felt that I was simply rendering to her
the homage that was her due. She
showed no appreciation of my sacri
fices, and failed to so much as return
me thanks for my services. In spite of
all my efforts my sister's heart closed
against me, the chasm between us
widened day by day and we drifted
farther and farther apart
At last I was forced to a realization
of my sister's feelings, and, though I
would have given the world to have
avoided it, I had to acknowledge to my
self that she had no love in her heart
for me. This knowledge, when I al
lowed it to possess me, came with
crushing effect, and I felt that my heart
would break beneath it I realized
that the only tie of love I had on earth
was severed, and that I was alone and
a stranger in my own family. Ah! how
I longed for love how I mourned my
desolation! How I prayed that some
heart might reach out toward me, ex
tending a thread of sympathy, and
throwing a ray of light Into the dark
ness that surrounded me!
Time passed on, and with each set
ting of the sun I saw a perceptible
widening of the dark gulf that separ
ated me from all that was pleasant of
earth. With each day, each hour, I felt
the gloom and desolation deepening and
thickening about me. I was unloved,
friendless and alone.

PICTURES IN COLORS.
A Very Clever and Successful Swindle la
Photography.
The pictorial swindler who ifuaran
tees to take your photograph In colors
has bobbed up again, and this time he
has located his lair on Grand street
The feat which he ostensibly performt
is one that certain well-known scien
tists have been vainly endeavoring to
accomplish for some time.
While photography in monotone has
been brought to the highest degree of
perfection, a process by which the plate
will accurately reproduce the tints and
colors of the object before the camera
has not been discovered. However,
this don't phase the Grand street gen
tleman. The failure of science was a
matter of small import to him, and hav
ing reached the conclusion that photo
graphs in color would pay he proceeded
to produce them.
His methods are the same as those ot
a similar concern that had a brief but
flourishing career on Broadway about
four years ago. While the subject is be
ing posed, assistants concealed behind a
properly perforated door make minute
notes of his or her facial tints and the
colors of the clothing. When the pic
ture is developed and mounted it is col
ored by band according to these notes,
and sent home as an example of instan
taneous photography in tints. The col
lapse of the Broadway firm was due to
a mistake on the part of one of the sec
ond conspirators behind the door. He
got mixed up in his notes, and when a
certain brunette actress received a stack
of photos which portrayed her with rich,
ripe tomato-tinted locks, a row was raised
that ended in the silent exit of the pho
tographic confidence men. The samples
exhibited by the Grand street deceiver
would not mislead anyone familiar
with photography, bat judging from
the constant crowd around the showcase
the general public seems to be taken in
by them very nicely. N.Y. Commercial

THE GREAT BEAR.
A Few Pointers About the Dipper and the
North Star.
Most people on a clear day can, with
out a watch or other timepiece, form a
closely approximate idea of the time of
tne day by the position of the sun, but
few, perhaps, have guessed at any simi
lar method of computing the time dur
ing the night without any other means
than the "starry skies." Notwithstand
ing, a fairly reliable time indicator can
be found in the northern skies on every
cloudless night As is generally known,
the group of fixed stars called the "Dip
per" makes an apparent revolution to
ward the north star in every twenty
ioirr nours, with the two stars forming
thr outer elevation of the bowl of the
dipper pointing nearly directly to the
poiar star continuously.
If the position of the "pointers" h
taken at any given hour, say six o'clock
in the evening in winter time and as
soon as it is dark in the summer, the
hour can thereafter be pretty accurate
ly measured by the eye during the
night Frequent observations of posi
tions will have to be made at the given
hour, as, owing to the constant chang
ing of the earth's position in space, the
position of the "pointers" in relation to
o ir point of observation and the star
also change. Observations taken dur
ing a year and impressed on the mind
will make a very good time indicator of
that part of the celestial space. Chi

JAPANESE PEARLS.
A Possible Source of Wealth for the
Flowery Kingdom.
A traveler recently returned from
Japan has written to the London
Figaro: "A possible source of wealth to
Japan Is in the abundance of pearls in
the waters around the southwestern
islands. These beds are practically un
worked, and even a Japanese paper ad
mits that there is scope for energy in
this direction. On these islands, it ap
pears, the women are the laborers."
In connection with this statement a
New York gem expert said to a Jew
elers' Weekly reporter that the pearls
are a greenish yellow variety secreted
by the abalone. The Japanese name
for this mussel is "awabL"
This shellfish is also found In Corea
and on the Pacific coast of the United
States and Mexico. The shells them
selves are valuable, as the lining Is
highly iridescent and finely colored.
Ihey are worth about thirty dollars a
ton in San Diego, CaL About five per
cent of the shells contain pearls. The
pearls frequently occur two or three
in one shell and are usually of high
value.
The Cxar't Crown.
The Russian crown and other royal
insignia, together known as "the crown
jewels," are valued at the enormous
sum of eleven million dollars, taking
the money of the United States as a
basis of calculation. The crown itself
is reckoned as being worth six million
dollars in cool cash. It is adorned
with hundreds of diamonds, individual
specimens being worth all the way
from a few dollars up to many thou
sands. Besides the diamonds, ' which
make this costly head-covering look as
if it had been buried in a shower of
falling stars, there are fifty-four mag
nificent pearls, each without a flaw,
set around the rim, a ruby of extraor
dinary size and beauty being used as a
centerpiece. The crown was made by
Tanzie, the Genevese jeweler," and was
first used by Catherine the Great

T1TE DAIRY.
MILK CONSUMPTION.
At an Article of Diet It Tie If on the In.
create.
Reader, did you ever consider what a
complete and superior diet milk was for
the human stomach? Used as it is in al
most every household in the land, in
conjunction with other foods, its real
nutritive value is not always appreciated
by the laity. Physicians of the highest
repute strongly recommend its use for
a form of nourishment in disorders
where other food would be prohibited.
It is so easily digestible, and at the
same time so nourishing that very weak
stomachs will assimilate it Milk can
by the following formula be digested
before it enters the stomach, and thus
be rapidly taken up by the blood as
nourishment without exciting the
action 'of a perhaps dyspeptic organ:
Take of the extract of pancreatine five
grains, and of bicarbonate of soda
fifteen grains, and add to one pint of
fresh milk and a gill of water. Heat
the whole to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and
hold at that temperature forty-five
minutes; then cool quickly, and it is
ready for drinking. This preparation
has a slightly bitter taste, and cannot
be coagulated by any acid. It is digested
milk, and for feeble stomachs it makc9
an excellent food.
While manufacturers are seeking to
extend the consumption of cheese and
butter the cons umption of milk is tak
ing care of itself, and it is increasing
especially in the cities and towns all
over the land. To what cause can this
be attributed? One thing the good
qualities of milk are becom ing better
known, and then there is far less adul
teration of the product than formerly.
This is not because the average milk
man has reformed e specially, but be
cause the laws of inspection are becom
ing more thoroughly enforced. Con
sumers have become aware of this, and
they know that they can obtain better
milk than formerly and at just as low a
price.
Our observation of city milk con
sumption has made us confident of this
fact, and it is a pleasing feature of the
results of honest dairy work. Do not
be afraid to drink all the good sweet
milk you want Physicians recommend
it and dyspeptic stomachs endorse it;
what better evidence is needed of its
nutritive and valuable qualities as a
diet? It is the healthy naturally fla
vored milk that is to be recommended.
Tainted or stable-fla vored milk is not
fitted to make even good pork, much
less to be used on the table. We do not
go so far as to claim that milk is a
panacea for all digestive woes, but we
do say that it has exce llent and endur
ing qualities as a diet not possessed by
other foods, an d that it seldom irritates
the dyspeptic stomach. George E.
Newell, in Ohio Farmer.
BOGUS BUTTER.
It Car.no t Compete With the Genuine Ar
ticle. There is no question that the sale of
bogus butter has been encouraged by
the large quantities of poor butter that
is sold. Nobody wants poor butter. But
nobody wants oleomargarine or buttcr
ine for his own use. In all our observa
tion during the years that bogus butter
has been en the market, we have never
met with a single individual whoever
called for a p ound of imitation butter
unless he was a hotel, restaurant or
boarding-housekeeper. Nobody, so far
as we could ever find, wants to eat it
himself, and the o nly way by which so
much of it U sold Is by representing it
directly or indirectly as pure butter.
Butter alwa ys tells just what it is. It
is an honest product It tells the
truth. If it is good it is good because
it has the real merit of goodness. If
it is bad it tells us and we can
leave it alone. But butterine
is a liar; it seeks to deceive and
does deceive. It shows a beautiful
exter ior, and does not offend the palate.
Yet it is the most offensive, dirty and
repulsive thing that comes npon our
tables. As good butter increases, this
miserable product will have less chance
of success; and good butter is all the
time increasing. Dairymen and far
mers are taking better care of the cows,
feeding more properly and adopting the
improved methods of dairying. Better
butter must necessarily be the result
Farmers' Voice.
Dairy Note.
The dairy sire to be prepotent
should be descended from a long line of
dairy cows of great natural capacity.
A cow over-fed will not digest all
her food, thus injuring her milk and
the butter made from it Good diges
tion and assim ilation are imperatively
necessary. American Farmer.
When buying a cow get one of the
dairy breeds, if possible. If not take
the best one you can get and feed liber
ally and house andhandlecarefully.and
you can gradually improve her produc
tiveness. Orange Judd Fanner.
The one who can invent a cheap
method of extracting all the nutritious
value contained in skim milk and whey
and present the same in a form to make
human food will be a benefactor to
society. American Dairyman.
In feeding dairy cows supply all the
proper food that can be digested and
turned into milk. The profit consists
in getting the largest possible product
from a given number of cows. Prairie
Farmer.
From the start the cow should be
trained to stand quietly until milked,
so that the milking can readily be done
with both hands and without the risk
of the milk being spilled. Farm, Fiild
and Stockman.
Summer dairying may be more eas
ily carried on than than winter dairy
ing, but it is not always the easiest
methods th it give the best profits, and
the sild has greatly lpssened the diffi
culty of winter dairying.-Colman's
Rural World.
There are dairymen who have a
private butter trade, but as a rule, it
is not practical to attempt to find
private customers for dairy products,
nnless it be among the acquaintances
of the dairymen. There are families in
the city who would, no doubt, be glad
to pay a high price for a uniform, good
product, the year round. But the
trouble is to find them. Farmer's Voice.
