A COSTLY BARGAIN.
Two lovely women, sitting in a room
that, in its luxurious adornments and
furnishings, ils cheery sunshine and
delicious faint perfume, was a fitting
surrounding for its fair occupants, little
Mrs. Deluiiiiue, dark and bewitching as
a gipsy princess, in her pink cashmere
dressing-gown, with its big square but
tons of solid gold, and stately Myra
Bellairs, fair as a blushing rose, with
her haughty red mouth and bewilder
ing violet bine-eyes that to everyone in
the world were cold and serene, except
10 Ariuur lorrens, the only man in tho
world who had ever won her love, and
who had won it and held it, and made
her absolutely hapiiv.
But Myra and her chief friend, Lucy
jjeituaine, were not uisctis-ung her lov

"And only thirty pounds! It seems
Mrs. Delmaine caressed it with, her
fair diamond hand.
"It wast lie oreatest bargain I ever
hean.1 of," Mvrasaid, in her low. exnuis-
ite voice. "I havo always wanted a
real lace dress, but 1 certainly never ex
pected to fiiul one so cheap and so mag-
miiccnt as this, it is worth a hundred
and fifty pounds."
"I think so," Mrs. Delmaine return
ed. "How did you happen to secure
such a wonderful" bargain, dear?"
"I saw an advertisement in tho
Queen, saying that a real lace dress
must be disposed of at a groat sacrifice.
So I went to tho address a very re
spectable lodging house, in Blooms
bury, and found the dress and the own
er a pale, miserable-looking creature,
but a lady born aud bred and she had
been very beautiful once, I think."
Mrs. Delmaine listened attentively.
"What a charming story! Do con
tinue, Myra, dear."
"There is really very little to tell,"
she said. "I asked to be shown the dress,
and she opened tho square cedar box,
lined with satiu, that contained it, and I
at oneo fell in love with it, although I
took care not to let her know that.'
Mrs. Delmaine laughed softly.
"Of course not."
"She told me it was the sole remain
ing relic of former wealth. She said
she had parted with everything. They
had been wealthy French people, it
seemed and really she was most re
fined and ladylike but so ill and weak
she could not speak much without
coughing. This," and Myra laid her
dainty, pearl kidded hand on the dress,
"was her wedding-dress, and never
worn but once; cost two hundred pounds
when lace was not so expensive as
"And yourgot it for less than a quar
ter of its proper value. Mvra. how did
you do it?'' 1
Myra lifted her eyebrows ia ft cofil
posed way. ..
"I simply told her what I would givo
her, and although I knew she would
think it a terrible sacrifice, she would
also know that thirty pounda in cash
was better than the useless garment in
"Of course she was not foolish
enough to refuse it, but Myra it was a
tremendous bargain for vou.
"Of course," Miss Btllairs said, com
placently, "but people in reduced cir
cumstances must expect to make sacri
fices. I could have given her a hundred
pounds and still secured the dress cheap
ly; but I preferred to do tho best J
Her blue eyes rested in loving prido
on the dress.
'And only' thirty pounds!" sighed
ill's. Delmaine. "1 am afraiul am en

A look of womanly sadness was tern

Miss Bellairs arose to finish her call,
while Mrs. Delmaine's deft-fingered

She went down to her carriage, beau

princess, and Arthur Torren's who was

house as in his mother's, by virtue of
cou3inship, took himself up from the
lounge in the room adjoining that in
which his cousin ana his betrothed,
both profoundly unaware of his prox
imity, had discussed the purchase.
"Can it be possible, can it bo possi
ble, that of all women in tho world, the
woman 1 love is a grasping, unscrupu
lous bargain-maker and that, too,

Ho went up and down, up and down
the room, his rapid, emphatic steps at
tracting Mrs. Delmaine's attention.
"Arthur! Why, I did not hear you

"Were either not brave enough or not
honorable enough to brand the tran
saction, the swindle it was."
Mrs. Delmaine looked at him in sur
prise. "Arthur! what do you mean? Why
you are; "
"Yes, I am if you mean astonished
and indignant beyond measure. I
would not havo thought Mvra could be
guilty of such well, we won't speak of
Twenty-four hours lator Mr. Toirens,
reading his morning paper, uttered an
exclamation of almost horror, for
amongst tho news was a paragraph to
the effect that a Madame Gracieuse Do
Lesley, a most estimable lady of reduc
ed circumstances, had committed sui
cide, leaving as her reason a noto writ
ten to her daughter, that she had paid
away her last penny, received for the
disposal of her wedding dres3, to satis
fy her creditors that death was prefer
able tQ starvation. And that the daugh
ter etching home to her dead motEer
was nearly heart-broken with grief and
horror, and had not a friend or relative
in the world.
Arthur Ton-ens read it over with in
tense interest. Then he ordered a han
som, and drove to where fair littie Vi
vian De Lesley met him, her bonnie
blue eyes all disfigured with weeping,
her rosebud of a mouth quivering like
"You must let mo bo your friend," he
said so earnestly, so gravely, that she
believed him and trusted him at once,
and told him all her sorrowful story.
And that same hour, Myra Bellairs
wondered why her lover did not come
to escort her "to select her antique jew
elry. And again- -not many weeks after
wards Myra learned that Arthur Tor
rens wi.ul.l never escort her anywhere
a :;n as !,er lover, for in binding up. a
v.i.wiid her own fair, cruel hands had
helped to make, he had found a truer,
higher, womanhood, and gave his hon
or and love into Vivian De Lesley's gen
tle keeping. H lulo the lace dress, with
the satin-lined box, whose inscription
reads, "Avee amour. Dieu vous garde,"
never sees tho light of day, and a fair
faced, haughty woman often cries over
it as she thinks its price was Arthur
Torrens and his love.
The Eyesight of Readers.
A writer in the Library Journal calls
attention to the dangers which readers
run of injuring their eyesight by the
use of a bad light. He remarks that
engravers, watchmakers, and all othera
who use the eyes constantly in their
work, take extra care to preserve them
by getting the best possiblo light by
dav, and using the best artificial light
at night. The great army, of readers
are careless, and have, sooner or later,
to pay the penalty of their carelessness
by giving up night work entirely, and
sometimes reading, except at short
intervals and under the best conditions,
All departures from common type,
making the matter more difficult for
the eye to take in, increase the danger.
Ihe magnitude of the physical labor of
reading is not appreciated. A book of
500 pages, forty lines to tho page and
fifty letters, to the line, contains 1,000,
000 of letters, all of which tho eye has
to take in, identify and combine each
with its neighbor. Yet many readers
will go through such a book in a day.
The task is one he would shrink from if
he should stop to measure it before
hand. Tho best position and best
lights, clear type, plain inks, with the
best paper of yellowish tints and abund
ant space between the lines, atlord the
best safeguards against harm.
Origin of "Boycotting."
"In his lecture, James Redpath relat
ed how the term 'Boycotting' first came
to be coined and applied, lie had been
breakfasting with Rev. John O'Mally,

BY ONE WHO WAS THERE.
The great stand erected for the
inauguration ceremonies was direct
ly east of the east front of the Cap
itol building. We watched the
crowd gather, and at noon the
mounted police coming up Pennsyl
vania Avenue, through, tho Capitol
grounds, rounding the curve of the
hill and coming into view, were the
forerunners of greater things. The
nodding yellow crests of the mili
tary guard of honor, from Ohio, were
caught by the late sunshine, and
looked beautiful, as they defiled in
front of the great length of the snow
Shouts went up from thousands,
as the carriage, drawn by four bay
horses, cama over the hill, in which
were seated the President-elect and
President Hayes. Next came the
carriage with the Vice-President
elect and Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton,
and then the trim ship from the
Navy-Yard. Sailors reclined on its
deck, and stood aloft in the rigging.
After the ship, soldiers in blue, sol
diers in gray, scldiers in white and
blue, soldiers in abundance, until
they extended in rows of blue, red
and gray from the central stand
far out into the streets around. Mo
tionless these soldier-boys stood,
with their bayonets flashing like
" siver threads," along tho continu
When the venerable Fred Doug

erected over the steps of the central
portion of the Capitol, followed by
the President-elect, the waiting
crowd cheered wildly. Gen. Gar
field advanced to the front of the
flag-draped elevation, where he was
introduced by Senator Pendleton, and
there was a little group around him
that was the center of the gaze of
many thousand anxious eyes.
On the President's right were the
Chief Justice and his associates, in
gowns of black. Near by sat Gen.
Hancock, and at his side could be
distinguished the silvery hair and
white cap frills of Gan. Garfield's
aged mother. It is said that she is
about eighty years old. I could not
help thinking that any mother who
had raised as good a son as she had,
must be a grand, good woman, and
that James A. ought to be proud of
the old lady who wore the plain cot
tage bonnet, and take pleasure in at
tributing to his mother's influence
and guidance all his success if? life,
and that she ought to feel proud to
see her son standing on the highest
pinnacle of worldly greatness, as

Mrs. Hayes' white bonnet shone
like a star, a3 serenely as ever. Her
true womanly face inspired respect,

Mrs. Garfield on the 4th dav of

William English was not in attend
ance. I suppose Mr. English
couldn't get a free pass, and . there
was no emigrant train goiDg direct
to Washington, D. C. Or perhaps
he was unable to foreclose a mort
gage, in order to pay tho regular
fare on the B. & O. E. R. Besides,
he lost five cents down a crack in the
floor. ''Who is there to mourn" for
poor Bill English ? "Not one !"
We saw a great many distinguish
ed men during our three days' so
journ, and in our strolling around
we saw enough to convince us that
some of them devote a great deal of
time to the importunities of "John
Barleycorn." There are somo very
heavy drinkers in both Houses of
Congress, men who are as straight
a dart at home. I was credibly
informed that some Congressmen
were unable to leave their beds for
weeks at a time on account of
"malaria!" It seems as if the mem
bers are like some of our folks at
home they drink until their stom
achs are all gone and they are un
able to eat or drink anything, and
have to lay by for a week or two.

deceive his constituents, his family
and friends. But we don't mean to

No American citizen should fail to
see the Capitol of his country. Like
the Capitol of ancient Rome, it
stands upon a hill, commanding a
view westward, one of the most beau

Capitol is 751 feet in leDgtb, the
greatest breadth 324 feet. The whole
covers an area of three and one-half
acres, or 153,112 square feet
The next place that I saw, that
was of special interest,was the little
frame "Christian," or Campbellite

Sudden and Surprising Cure.
Miss. Lilhe Tyler, a relative of
Mr. William Tyler, the Postmaster
at this place, has been an invalid for
upward of six years. Doctors have
termed her complaint heart disease.
She has been treated by some of the
most noted medical men in the coun
try and has used all kinds of medi
cines she could hear of, with no re
lief. About a month ago Miss Tyler
heard of a lady living in Connecti
cut, who cured long standing dis
eases by prayer. A letter was sent
to this lady, and an answer received
from the worker of miracles, appoint
ing the day and the hour when Lil-
lie and her friends should engage in
prayer for her restoration to health.
The lady came at lust, and the in
valid's friends gathered at her bed
side. This was about a week 8go.
Miss Tyler was, at the time, too
weak to raise her head from the
pillow, and the company present in
cluded her uncle and aunt, Mr. and
and Mrs. Nathan Tyler, and her
pastor, the Rev. Thomas Westcott
At the appointed time the young
lady and her assembled relatives en
gaged in prayer. As remarkable as
it may seem, before the hour had
elapsed the young lady was suffi
ciently recovered to sit up in bed,
and has been rapidly improving ever
since. She is to-day in such an im
proved condition that she is able to
ride out, and her relatives are con
vinced that her complete cure will

"Yaas, there's money made in stocks,
no doubt," said the old man, as, ha
removed his hat and ran his fingers
through his gray hair locks, "but it's a
reesky bizness; it's suthia' like betting
on whar lightning's going to strike,
with the odds in favor of hitting the
tree you stand under."
"Then you never speculate?"
"Never. I dig along the old farm,
takin' one crop with another, and pull
ing out stumps when I've nothing else
to do; and if I don't make any great
shakes, I haven't anything to worry
over. I hed a puity solemn warning
during the coal He excitement, and it

"How was that?"

and built up like a camel. But when
she struck ile that was a different thing.
