It is a tn asure ot its kind. L;i's go down again." Thev went down the s'airs together, he talking gavly, she with a troubled look on her lac. After duly admiring the place she put a timid hand on his arm and eaid : "But Ai thur, dear, let's have no wiuc in it." "Why V he asked in sarpiise. "Because I have resolved, if I am over mistress of a house there -shall be no liauor8 keut in it uo 'social "lasses' for friends." "Why, Katy, yoa arc unreasonable did not know you carried jour temper ance ODinions so far a tha'. Or course I shall keep wine in mv tmu-e and en tertain my friends with it, too." She raised her lac appealingly. "Aithur!" she said in a tone of voice wh'ch he knew how to interpret. Arthur s brow grew clou ly. "Bui you cannot fear for me?"' he said with h ill' off ended pride. "I must fear for you, Arthur, if you begin a he did. An i I ear for others Inside tor the sous and husbands and fathers who mv learn at our cheertul hoard to love the poison that shall slay them " They went up the step' again and Bat on the sfa in the dining room for a few moments, while Katy put on her hat and drew on ber gloves. The argument was kept up It is un necessary that we should repeat all that was said on toth slde It ended at last as similar discussions have ended before Nei her was willing to yield Katy, be cause she fell that her whole future hap piness might be involved in it ; Arthur, hecuuse be thought it would be givine way to a woman's whims and would sac rifice too much of his popularity with Lis iriends H bad bought this house, paid for it, and furnished it bandnmelv, and in a few weeks was to bring Ki'y as its rais-t-es-. All the alternoon they had been looking it over together, happy as two birds in a finished nest. But when Ar thur closed the door and put the key in his pocket in the chill, waning light of the December afternoon, and gave Kitty his arm to see her home, it was ail bro ken up" between them, and "To Lri" was put on the door of the pretty house the next morning It was the most foolish thing to do; but then lovers can always fin 1 something to quarrel ahon. Tuey parted with a cool "Good even ing" at the door of Katy's lodging house. She went up to her room to cry ; he went home hurt and angry, but se cretly resolved to see her again and give her a chance to say she was wrong He would wait a few days, however; it would not do to let ber s-e that he was in a hnrrv to "mike it up." He did wait nearly a week, and when he called at 'he modest lodging houe where be had hen wont to visit so often he was toll that Miss Gardiner had b-en gone three days. Gone wneie?" he asked slow to be lieve. "She did not tell me, sir. She said she was not coming bac c. Her aum lives at Bristol " He then took the next train to Bristol and investigated, but neither there nor in any other place, though he searched for months afterward, did he God sign or trace of Katy Gardiner. All this happened more than a year before I saw Katv, but we three "facto ry girls," who lodged at Mrs. Howell's with bei, of course knew nothing ahout it. She came to the factory and applied for work. The superintendent thought her too delicate for such work, but she persisted, and in fact she improved in health, spirits and looks after she became used to the work and simple fare ot the factory girls She was a stranger to us all and it seemed likely shp would remain so. But one day Mary Bascomb s dress caught in part of the machinery, and before any one else count tninK what to ao, mtv had sprung to her side and pulled her away by main strength from the terrible danger that threatened her At er that Mary and Lizzie Payne and I, who were ber dearest friends, were Kity's sworn allies. We all lodged together then in the big 'Factory boarding-house." But Katy took it into her head that we should have so much nicer times in a private lodging to qui selves; and when she took ant ing into her head she generally carried it through. In less than a week she bad ound the very place she wanted, ar ranged matters with the superintendent, and had us sherered under Mrs. How ell's vine and Bg tree. v?e four girls were the proud possessors of a large double-bedded at artment with a queer little dressing-ronm attached "and the liberty of the pailors to receive visitors in" a proviso at which we all laughed. This was "home" to us alter the labor of the day. In deed and in truth Katy made the place so charming that we for. got the factory girls when we got to it She improvised cunning little things out of trifles tint are usually thrown away as useless, and the fl twers grown in bro ken pots in our mndows were a wonder to behold S-'ie always had a fresh book or periodical on her table.and better than this she brought to U9 the 'arger cultiva tion and the purer taste which taught us bow to use opportunities within our reach. "What made you take to our style of life, Katy ? ' asked Lizz e one evening a we all sat in the east window watching the outcoming of the stars and telling girlish dreams "Destiny, my child," answered Katy s'ooping to replace the little boot she had thrown oft to rest ber foot. "But you might have been an author ess, or a painter, or a a bookkeeper, or-" Lizzie s Knowledge or the worin was rather limited. Katy broke in upon ber : "There, that win do. I was not a bom genius, and I hate arithmetic" "Bat you did not always have to work for a living, Katy," said May; "you re a lady, I know." Kuy laughed a q ieer, short laugh. "Yes " she said, "and that's w'hy I don't know how to get mv living in any way but this. So heboid me a healthy and honest factory girl." She rose, made a little how and a ii ur;sh with her small hand, and we all lauil e I although we had eaid nothing funny. Milly," said she, "please light tho lamp and get the magazine while I hunt up my needle and thread. Ladies, I And myself under the necessity of mending my gloves this evening. Oh, poverty, where is thy sting? In a shabby glve, 1 do believe, for nothing hurts me like this unless it be a decaying boot." Kuv's gloves were a marvel to us She never wore any but of a good qual ity and always cf the same color a brownish, neutral tint that barmonz-d with almost any dress but just now a new pair seemed to be the one thing needful, from ihe appearance of the ones she brought out. She sat and patiently mended the little rents while 1 read aloud, and when she had finished the gloves looked almost new. The next day was Saturday and we had a balf-bdidav. Katy and I went to make some trifling purchases, and on our way home slopped at a big boarding house to see one of the girls who was ill. When we came ou Kty ran across the street to get a magazine from the news shop, and came hurrying up to overtake me before I turned the confer She had the magaz ne open and one of her hands was ungloved, but it wa- not until we reached home that she found she had lost the glove. It was too jate then to go and look for it. We njent and searched the next morning but could not find it Katy mourned for it. "It was my only pair, girls,'1 said she tragically, "and it's a loss that cannot be replaced." W.tat people called a "panic" had tnc curred in financial circles in th spring after Arthur Craig had lost his Kitv,nd almost without warning he found him self a poor man. He left his atfairi in i In hands of his creditors,, having satjs. tied himself that thev could gather enough out of the wreck to save them selves and set his face to London He had heen educated for a physician though fortune made a merchant of him Learning from a fiiend that there was an opening for a doctor in Fenwick he came thither and began to prac'ic. Dr. Sewell had gone off on a visit leaving his pationts in charge of the new doctor; so it came about thut on that Saturday evening he was on his way to visit Maggie Lloyd, the sick girl at h lodging-hon9e, when just alter turning the corner near the news shop, he saw a brown glove lying on the pavement He was about to pass it by. hut a man's in stinct to pick up anything of value that seems to have no owner made him put V it in his pocket, the next minute. He forgot all ab ut it But when he had made his call and re turned lo bts consulting-room, in taking a paper from his pocket the glove fell out, and he picked it up and looked at it with idle curiosity. It was old but well preserved. It bad been mended often, but so neatly as to make hi in regard mending as one of the fine art-. It had a strangely familiar look. to him Little and brown and shapely it lay on his knee hearing the very form of tha hand that had worn it. And as he gazed at it there came to him the memory of an h-ur, many months past, when he had sat by Katy's side on the green sofa in the dining-riom of "their house" (alas!) and wa'ched her pat her small hands ino a pair of brown gloves so much like this one. Ever since that ..erer-to-he forgot en day the vision of his lost love, sitting there in the fading light, slowly drawing on ber glove, ber eyes filing as they talked quarreled, we should sav, per haps had gone with him as an abiding memory of her, until be had come lo each shade of the picture the color of the dress, the ribbons at the t'iroat and the shaded plume in her hat. He looked at the little glove a long time. He had thought it raigh' belong to one of the factory girls, as he found it near the lodging house. But it did not look like a "factory hand's" glve. He would ask Maggie Lloyd at any rate So he put it carefully in h ? pocket until he should make bis calls the next morn ing. He had suffered the glove to become so associated with the memory of the past that wa&Racred to him that he felt his cheek burn and his hand tremble as he drew it forth to show it o Maggie who was sitting in the comfort of con valescence, in an arm chair by the win dow, watching the handsome young doctor write the prescription for her ben Ot. "Bv the wav. Miss Maggie, do you know whose glove this is ?" Maggie knew it at once. It was Miss Gardiner's glove. "Miss Gardiner !" The name made his heart beat again. "Is she one of the factory hands?'' "Yes, but she lodges with Mrs. How ell, quite out of town, almost; she was here :o see me yesterday." "Oh, I see!'' sai l he, not the roost rel evantly. "And can you tell me how t find Mrs. Howell's house? I suppose I could go by and re-tore this gtove to its owner." Maggie thought this unnecessary trouble, but she gave the required direc tion and he went out saying to himself: It can't be Katy, of course, hut this glove shall go back to its owner." Mary and Lizzie went to church that Sunday morning. Katy declared shp wouldn't go, having but one glove. I staved at home with her and offered lo keep Mrs. HoweTs children for her, and so persuaded that worthy woman to at tend worship with the girls. And this Is how it croe ahout that while we were having a frolic on the car. pet with the children in Mrs. Howell's rooms we heard a ring at the door, and Bridget having taken herself off some where there was ao help for it but for one of as to answer the summons. "Ton go, Katy," whispered I in dis may; "I cannot appear." Katy glanced serenely at her own trii By head in the looking-glass gave a null at her overskirt and a touch to her col 'ar and opened the door. Immediately afterward I was shocked to hear her utter a genuine feminine scream, and see her drop to the floor ; and that a man, a perfect stranger to me, gathered her up in his arms and began raving over her in a manner that aston ished me. He called her "his darling," and "bis own Katy," and actually kissed her. I was surprised at, myself afterward that I hadn't ordered that gentlemen out, but it never occurred to me at the time and when Katy "came to" and 8at up on the sota and heard his speeches, she seemed so well pleased that I left them and took the. children a, to our room, feeling bewildered all over. What shall I say further? Only that Katy lives in a pretty house in the town known as Dr. Ciaig's residence, wheie we three ' factory girls" have a home whenever we want it. And there are no liquors found on the sideboard nor at her table. One day I heard Arthur sav : "You were a silly child, Kate. to run away from me. I should have given up the point at last, I know." "But there would have been the splen did cellar and the ten thousand a year," answered she. "It would have been such a temptation. We are safe as it is, dear." Tho Happy Past.

Why don't you?" "Because I have a letter here which says you ate a thief and a liar, and a scoundrel and a villain, and a traducer and a perjurer, and a defaulter and a plotter, and a low down brawler and a lover of all that is vile and wicked and dishonest and abhorrent to decent peo ple, and a " "Ah ! stranger, go on and read that nil over again and read it loud.

It reads like an editorial in the opposition paper, and brings again to my memory that blessed period when I felt like I was somebody and life was worth living. Oh, glorious hours of my pa3t,will ye ever Come back to me?" and the tears rolled down his cheeks as the city editor pronounced again the ratgic words and then gave him a quirter to sober up on.

The prevailing disease is diarrl oBi, with two cases-of typhus fever, that of Aaron Headley's two son's, George and Eliel. The sick are all convalescing, except one o( the cases of fever. We have to record the death of T. W. Mellott an aged and respectable citi zen of our town who on the morning of the 24th obeyed the call of the Master, and peacefully passed over the cold Jor dan. Deceased had livei to the ripe old age of 82 years; his remains were taken to East Sunsbury for interment. The wheat of this neighborhood is about all threshed and is splendid. Oats almost an entire failure. Corn is prom ising a good yield. Potatoes good, but beginning to rot. From present out look we need have no fears of starving the coming season. The smiling face of David Moore of W. Vx, is seen driv ng arou id town.

To show the confidence that his fellow cit z'ns nlaced in him, he was elected to office of trus', .an t responsibility in his township and conn'v, having been elect ed to the offij" of Land Appraiser and twice to the office of Coimty Surveyor. He was an excellent school teacher, a good cit:zn, a friend that wouldn't fail you True as at el to bis convictions we could expect nothing else than that he would be true to God. He was a member of the Metsodist Episcopal Church for over 14 years and died a most triumphant death, pointing upward toward his Heavenly Home a little while b fore his dealh and s; raking of his hopes in the most cheerful and hopeful manner.

Kemarkable Scrlos ot Festivities! Arranged for tbo Oriole Next Month. New Features added ev ery day. An Unparalleled Event in the Mys tic Congress. Baltimore, on her Mettle. Exceedingly Low Rail road Rates tor all Parts. Oriole matters appear to be progres sing most favorably in Baltimore, and every day adds some new feature to the already brilliant series of festivities ar range ! for. Negotiations are pending for the presence in the ci'y of the fa mous Gilmore Band of Nw York, in addition to the celebrated Marine Band of Washington. These noted musical organizations and the great number oi others of similar character from Phila delphia, Washington and Baltimore, will till the air with melody during the week and largely increase the enjoyment. The crack military companies entering for the competitive drill from New York, Philadelphia, Washington, the South and West, insures a struggle for the magnificent prizes offered, which cannot but prove one of the most nota ble of its kind ever known. A pleasing feature of the Grand Parade of all the military to the drill ground in the beau tiful D-uid Hill Park, will be the escort of the Gra id Armv of the Republic There are thirty odd pasts in the State of Maryland which will participate, and with them a large number of PosU from Pennsylvania, DUtrict of Columbia and o her si dions. Tne parade of the Grand Army will he a very imposing one, and together with the splendid display to be made by the military organ zitions, will be a most fitting coramen lation of the anniversary of the Battle of North Point, as it occurs on that day, September 12th. It was the gallant defense of Col. Arm Ktead and his brave men that lead to Key's inspiration to write the "Star Spangled Banner." A stately monu ment to Armitead will oe unveiled on the 12th, and the immediate descendants of Key have been specially invited to attend, as have also the few survivors of the battle. "The old Defenders," as they have so long been lovingly termed. The old Hag itself it is hoped will be se cared, it being in the possession of a descendant of Cot. Armistead. The Grand Army Post making the finest ap pearance upon parade will he presented with a superb stand of colors Secre tary of War Lincoln will upon his re turn to Washington announce the three United States Army Officers who will constitute the Board of Judges for the competitive drill and also make the award of the Grand Array colors. New interest has heen given the sec ond day by the arrival in this country of Lard Sir William E len, a direct de scendant of Lord Bdtiiuore, and who will be a distinguished guest on the sec ond day of the festival, the thirteenth, and which will be Lord Baltimore day. The arrangements for the day are upon a m03t elaborate scale, and it promises to eclipse even the great day of the Ses-qui-Centennial, The parade will be an immense one and divided into five grand; divisions. The first, the mili'ary, the right of the line held by the winning company in the previous day's compe tition. To the military organization making the finest show on parade a mag nioent set of marquers will be presen ted, and this will serve to still further increase the pleasant rivalry between the military organizations. The second livision will be constituted of uniform ed societies, and will be exceedingly large and attractive. The Oriole Ex'-c mive Committee will present a costly silken banner to the society making the best appearance, and in addition the special commit'ec having the division in charge propose to oner a seconn beautiful prizi. The third division will be the immediate escort and guard o' honor to Lrd Baltimore and hie dUtin- suished peers, Rex, Coraus, Momtis, Veiled J?mphet, Memphii, Proteus, In fant Mvstics and C iwbellions. The Royal Party will arrive bv steam er, and the scene upon the waters of the haibr will be one long to be remember, ed. As the steamer conveying the no table party enters the harbor salutes will be fired by the Uiitel States ships of war and Fort McHenry. The honor paid hy the war ships will be of the highest character, the yards manned and all colors flying The way up the bar bor wijl bo marked bv a peculiarly a1- tt active procession of all the shipping, gaily decorated, and many of the ves sels discharging the Japanese day fire works. Daring the Ssqu-Ctntennial the water parade was considered one of the finest displays of the week, hut this year it will be far more brilliant Upon arrival of Lord Baltimore an I parly they will he seated in carriages and dtiv en to place in line Th entire party will be closely masked and attired in the magnificent royal costumes of the cen turies ago. The guard of honor, moun ted cavalcade, and in fact the division entire will form a most brilliant specta cle, as all will be in exceedingly rich and costly costumes. The fourth division will embrace the departments of the municipality, Fire, Police, e'e, and make a very flae and effective showing. The fifth division will be the fl ats and tableau cars repre sentative of the progress Baltimore has made in manufactures and trade. It will be a strikingly interesting parade, as nowhere have displays of this cha-. acter ever been made to equal those ot Baltimore. This year the leading houses are stri ving to the utmost to excel each other, and the cars now under wav are not only most numemns hut of remarkably com plete and attractive prooprtions. It will be no mere show ot advertising vans, but representations of manufacturing interests really a study in every detail.; The decorations throughout the city will be upon a scale of variety and splendor never before attempted even in the Mon umental Citv. The citizens recognize tnat last year's celebration was not what it should have been, and are determined that this year the fullest and most com plete amends shall be made. No money is being spared to secure sueh end, and the great railway corporations have sub scribed munifleenlly to the fund, and manufacturers, merchants and others are responding most handsomely. Therp can be no question of the Oriole Festi val ot 1882 being the most remarkable event of the character known in this country. In no one respect will this be verified than as to ib nioht. n0Ant. uiursoav, the 14th. It will lie unpar alleled as to the presence and participa tion of the Mystic Societies of the South and West, and the tableaux cars of Rex and the Carnival Court, Knights of Mo mus, Mistick Krewe, Knights of Pro teus, of New Orleans, Veiled Phophets, of S'. Louis, Cowbellians, Infant Mys tics. Mvths an l Strikers, of Mobile, and Knights of Morons, of Galveston, will be perfect marvels ot imposing construc tion, exquisite effects and dszz ing bril liancy. The membership and move ments of these organisations are shrou ded in tho deepest mystery, and not even the Order of the Oriole can or will have knowledge of them What tbey have accomplished in glorious pageants bag made their respective cities famed the world over, and the congress of all at Baltimore next month will of itself be worthy a week's journey to witness. It will be an event of a life-time, as no one can tell if such a gathering will ever again be known That the Baltimore Order will permit its, own pageint to suffer bv comparison with those of the famed organiz itions of the South and West no one at all acquainted with the liberality and enterprise of the city can for a moment think probable. The pa geant of Tnmsdsy night, the fourteenth, will beyo id all probability of compari son, prove ihe most gorgeous and daz zling spectacle ever witnessed in this or any other country. This is saying much, but every word of it will be established s absolute truth. In number of floats, in massive build, in brilliant effect and great beauty. rhe Baltimore Oriole Pa geant will excel anything or the kind ever before attempted in any city. That it may b ! seen and appreciated, and that Baltimore's traditional hospi tality may he enjoyed to the uttermost, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad makes the exceedingly low rate of half fare from all the enormous section of coun try its g'eat system ramifies. From all points, all stations on its main line, all divisions and all hranches the rate will ba one-half the regular fare, or one fare for the round trip. With the B. dc O.'a grand system of through trains, throp sleepers and through cars from the reat centres of the West and Sc iilh, St. Liuis, Louisville, Cincinnati, C alumbus, Cuicago, Pittsburg and almrjt number less other points, its capacity for the ac commodation of all must stand unques tioned. Its fast time ha j become pro verbial, as have also its magnificent pal ace and parlor cars, i's day coaches, din ing cars and dining halls. It is the model fast line of the cSntinent, as it is the oicturesque line of America and Baltimore's greatest imtttmlon. Ling may it wave. The Mahmoadleh Canal. It was cut, by command of Mehemet Ali, in the year 1810, the destruction of the old one, eighteen years previously, having ruined A'exandrian trade by iso lating the city from the grand old river. After the death of Sir Ralph Abercrom bie, when the British were trying to dis lodge the French troops from Alexan dria, they cut great sluices in the banks of the canal near Damietta, intending thereby to cut off the garrison from communication with the rest of Egvpt, as also to stop the supply of fresh wa ter. In the rush which ensued the wa ters of the Lake Aboukir were drained down the ancient bed of the Lake Mare otis, producing a vast inundation to the east and south of the city a new fea ture of the country, which ihe French soon turned to their own advantage, bringing a flotilla of gun-boats to work on the .newly created sea So the'Pa sha very wisely determined to make a new canal ; b it he showed neither wis dom nor mercy in the way he set about it. Vast multitudes of these poor, hard worked and much- ippressed fellahs, about whom we have lately heard so much, were gathered together two hun dred and fifty thousand men, women and children, half naked, were forced to work in the b irning sun, under com mand of bru'al task masters, who as in the days of Pharoah, did not hesitate freely to use their scourge of cords to encourage the weary. No', the men only, but women and little children, were lashed until thev literally streamed with blood. No regular tools were provided ; each brought his own poor basket of palm-leaves to carry away the sand and mud, which they scooped up with their hands. No wages were given, and only the most miserable food ; so it was small wonder that, hy the very lowest compu tation, 23,000 of these poor wretches perished from starvation, disease and exhaustion Their bodies being shovel ed in with the sand and mud helped to raise the canal banks, making them at the same time into a horrible, ghastly ceme ery. But the fifty miles of canal were completed in one year (some ac counts sav in six weeks), and human life in Egypt is of small importance when balance) again-t a great man's will. From first to last these Egyptian canals have weighed heavily on the la borers; for what with artificial lakes and rivers, means of locomotion or of irrf. gation, each successive generation seems to have devised for itself some new ex periment in water-works. In the very first reign of which we have trustworthy historical records, namely, that of Menes, who lived about live hundred years be fore Abraham we And him undertaking, and successfully accomplishing, a trifling little alteration in the position of the Nile Gentleman t Magazine. A Hint on Wheat Seeding. While there may not be any great ad vance made in the viel 1 per- acre of wheat with the modern iraoroveroents. tbe gain is found in le seeding and so. penor quality of market grain. Shrun ken or cracked grains will make, if any, plants too weak to withstand insects and iron. Far better clean out all that the best fanning mills and strong brine will remove, and feed it to the chickens than to use it for seed. Good seed, plump and full grained, ia a necessity. And when such seed is drilled into well pre pared and rich ground ali over, a hs'f bushel to an acre has the same effe -t thnt five, six and eight grains of corn Mi the hill has, viz: to make a slend-r growth of stalk and small ears Tha wheat plant requires room for tillering.
