HOT WISELY BUT TOO WfiLL. It was a rainy day. A train was waiting at tho Union Depot. A lady hnH .gehtleihaH Uo.jr. ttf llie Ladies' Wiuting-lloom, while an. other qiiiflled in a gossamer* sat on a bench in a corner. "How you can call tier pretty and Joyablu, 'passes njy comprehension," fhe lady was saying, iior tones indica tive Qf extreme scorn anddisgust. ,"t own -Jessica, is somewhat under (he.weather to-day, liguratively and jitterally," said,the gentleman amus edly, giving a quizzical glance over at the lady in the corner. "Very few ladies loolc their best when they have a cold and when a chilly rain is doinjr its best to make it worse," "Well, trains wait for no one, so, if you will be so kind as to put me on mine, Brother Raymond, I'll leave you to Jessica's tender mercies. Don't forget to tell Catharine that I utterly disapprove of her sister Jessica." "Very well, I'll not forget to tell her," he retorted in a smothered voice. At which Mrs. Stenby looked at him suspiciously. Was it possiblo her brother was laughing at her? Her— the wealthy, the exclusive, the taste ful Mrs. Stetaby, Whose dicta was ill Ways considiered infallible? Very well, let him laugh! After putting his Otl'ended and mi toieldilv plnmjvsistor tib'oard the traid and bidding her a hasty good-bye, Raymond La Bruce returned to the forlorn little figure sitting in its cor ner. "Your sister did not like me—I know she did not!" said a plaintive voice hoarsely. "Jcssica, you must take oft" that ridiculous gossamer at once," Ray mond authoritatively commanded, not replying to her complaint. "Why? she asked, looking up inno cently. "It is no longer nccessary. Our train will soon be in, and we will not be exposed to any more rain. I will get you a cup of codec at once, and you ipust wrap up well in this afghan." "Thanks," she answered as well as she could between two sneezes. Jessica Cler had not long been out of school, and had been visiting a school friend. She was now on her way to her married sister's house which was her home. Raymond's own sister, Mrs. Stenby, had been visiting him and he had come up from the country ou an Eastern bound train with her to tho Union Depot in where he also expected to meet Jessica Cler. Jessica came and met Mrs. Stenby, who was not charmed with her, which was not after the fashion of other peo ple, for Jessica made friends wherev er she went. Raymond La Bruce and his wife -Catherine, Jessica's sister, adored her and thought there were none like her. Perhaps it was be cause she heard the girl's praises so constantly sung, that Mrs. Stenby found no beauty ia this girl's peachy complexion, wavy brown hair, ancl pellucid brown eyes. Jessica stood up at Raymond's com mand and he divested her of the of fending water proof. When it was re moved there was revealed a rounded girlish form clad in dark green serge, while her dark green Derby was adorned by a sipgle iridescent wing. "Now you look more liko a civilized being," commented Raymond, as he wrapped along soft afghan about her. Then he wont away for the colfce. "You are very good," she said grate fully as she sipped tho steaming cup. "And you have been very naughty, Now confess and tell me at once what you have been doing to contract that cold?" "Nothing at all." "But you have, and I shall write at once to Mrs. Curtis and tell her if she can't take better care of you than this, I shall forbid you ever visiting her again." "Under such a terrible threat, I feel that I iuust confess to playing the Newfoundland again/' the irirl iaugli fngly explained. "Rescuing some dirty ragamuffin from a watery ziave at the risk of your own life! very well, we will seo what Catherine will have to say to you. I hope she will scold you severely," Raymond said, himself frowning as severely on the girl as he could, whom he thought to be the sweetest sister in the world. "Catherine will say I was right—as I always am," retorted Jessica, au daciously. "You are a conceited little puss! Come, there is our train for home," and then they hurried out and scram bled on their train. Catherine did not scold Jcssica for rescuing the unfortu nate little boy of her friend from drowning, but she had to hear all of the particulars—after she had put Jes sica to bed. "I would not let Stella write you of my 'brave deed' as she called it, and as I felt no ill effects from it except this cold, I insisted on coming home at the appointed time in spite of her remonstrance," related the damsel. Catherine regarded her gravely. "Some of these days you will sacri fice your own life for another's. "Don't predict such a gloomy end for me," Jessica laughed. "Now, I .think if you will go away, 1 can go to Bleep and in the morning I shall be well." Jessica soon recovered from the ill effects of her icy bath, and was her old winsome solfl Unconsciously to himself, Raymond La Bruce drifted into thinking' more of his sweet sister than was good for his peace of mind. If she were ab sent, he chafed visibly till her return. When she laughingly related her con Quests, at festivities, of masculine hearts—for she was very gay that win ter—lie found himself regarding her *ith gloomy brows. "I really think Jessica is becoming serious over Tom Lanztree's offer of Marriage, and I bope that she will act tike a sensible girl and tak£ him." "Why? Are yon tired of your own ?»ter? asked Raymond, half savnge v» bat still going on with his shaving. Catherine sat by. the cheery fire •arming her pink palms. At Ray mond's question she turned her blue tynttj wondwiagly. "Why, Raymond, how absurd yon are some times. I declare, you have changed lately and are not at all your agree able self," she laughed. Raymond smothered a sigh, "To toll tho truth, Catherine^ I am not well. I h^d thought to take you all a little trip-»anywhcre you wished to go—but I suppose Jessica's mar riage will frustrate my plans." "Jessica's marriage! lou ridiculous man! Who has said anything about Jessica marryingP" almost screamed Catherine. *'Didn}ty^u?',1, ,t, ..j, i. "Why, no I bniy.said.. Ithoped. she would consider Tom Langtree's offer favorably,. It is not her orst offer, by any .means, you must surely know. '*1 don't see what she wants to mar ry for anyway. Isn't she happy with usP" "She has never said that she'was hot, dnly it is natural that a girl should one day desire a home of her very own." "Why should she?" ""Oi my dear, how absurd you are! Why, if I had not .desired some other home than aunt's, I should never havo married you!" Raymond put up shaving materials thoughtfully, while Catherine gazed into tho hre with a placid smile of serene content. She adored het husbaud and chil dren. and envied no Woman. "Will you drive with me this after booiiidear?" asked Raymond bn his Way out of the fcOoni. "O feertainly," she responded with ready alacrity* At the foot of the stairs Raymond meti Jegsica. "Is it. true—this about your .marriage?" he demanded,- She laughingly freed her hands from his firm.olasp. "Catherine has-been babbling.", "That is no answer. Tell me, are you to marry soon?" be persisted. She shivered. "O, Bro. Raymond, don't you see I am cold? Let me go up to Cathie's room. She always has a good fire." "Tell me!" he insisted, placing one hand under her chin ana raising her face to his. "I shall never marry!" Then she sped up-stairs while Raymond'went out of the house with a cleared face. "Jessica! You are shaking like a leaf! Have you a chill?" Catherine demanded as Jessica sank down on the rug, spreading out her hands to the tire, shivering audibly. "O, I don't know—Catherine. 1 am going away!'* Jessica exclaimed With •shattering teeth. •'What nonsense!" "It is true!. I think I shall visit aunti'e awhile:" "And just now Raymond was plan ning a trip for us all—and I was think ing of Cuba," grumbled Catherine "O, I should be no end of trouble to Raymond, so please leave me out of j'ourplans." The next day Raymond said: "Well, ladies, how would you like to leave home for awhile?" "O, splendidly, and I intend going straight to auntie's this very after noon. 1 telegraphed her this morn ing," said Jessica nonchalantly, heel ing an orange, deftly for little Ray. Raymond looked at her and said iit a quiet voice: Why .do you wish to pain us sO Jessie, dear?" Now, Bro. Raymond,4' sh& said deprecatingly but giving him a defiant glance, "lor'you to impute evil motives to me is too much." An hour afterwards he followed Jes sica into the library where ho knew she had gone. "Jessica," he commenced abruptly, •I am going away to-morrow to be gone an indefinite timie. Will yott not revoke your decision and remain with Cathie and the children till my re turn?" "But I have telegraphed Aunt Ruth," she answered in a loW voice, uneasily fingering her book. "You can send her a second tele gram. "I will!" He went out. A spasm of pain con torted her face, while he went on to Catherine's room. '.'Very well, Raymond, we will put off our trip to Cuba till vou re turn," she promised her husband after he explained that important business called him ftwAy fl»r several weeks. The next day, after he had «aid good-bye t«j them all, grouped together in the lower hall, kissing Jessica in A brotherly way, last of all, he ^returned to tho sitting room for a forgotten paper half an Jionr after he should have been on tile way. Jessica was alone in the room, arms flung out oh the table, head buiried betwe^tii She looked up at the opehittg of the doort and slowly those when she saw Who it Was. All her bright bdauty seemed gohe— her lips were'tightly drawn ana ashy alo, her cheeks were like marble, her Town eyes dull and dead. "Why do you return, Brother Ray mond? I remembered a paper left here after I had gone half way to tho sta tion—I came back for it/' he hur riedly explained. "Your will. Hero it is*" and she ex tended a shaking hand to him. He clasped both hands and paper and drew her to his breast "O, my God! Jessica, it is terrible! Do you not know that 1 love you—do you* not see thai it is my mad love for ou that is driving me from my ome?" She had leaned like a dead weight against his heart.. Now she lifted her self, put both arms about his neck, and kissed him. It was a kiss of Renunciation—but he did not know that. Go, now. Brother Raymond you may return to Catherine soon," and with a soft smile playing on her face, she pushed him away. He went out and away. "Come, Ray, let Aunt Jessie row fou over to that island where We went iast summer so often." "And can't mamma and Katie /some to!" cried the little boy, clasping his hands. "Yes, dear." It was three days after Raymond's departure, and Jessica rowed the lit tle party safely to the island situate^ in tho river which ran by their Florida home. The little ones soon tired and Jes sica was ready to take them home. Jessie, you do not seem well, dear, xi afraid it was not prudent for any of ns to come out to-aay. The east wind is so raw and chilly, and you don't seem strong enough to row the boat," Catherine objected. Jessica, with a smile, took her place, but Catherine said she would wait till Jessica took the children to the shore, then she would call Sam or Jim to come back for her. Jessica took the children safely'over, and Catherine saw her kneel and kiss them, then giv ing them to their nurse 'who was wait ing, Jessica once more propelled the boat toward the island. "Jessica, it. is not like you to be so perverse. Why did vou not call Sam to come after me, as proposed?" "Catherine, dear, don't scold, bat kiss me, kiss me twice, once for broth er Ray mood and tell bim so when he comes borne, won't youf "Yoa can deliver your own kisses to him then," Catherine laughed. With a grave face Jesrioa rowed once more shoreward. "Catherine, write for Raymond to come home to-night!" "Jessie* what ri|s JOB? I iwUJj believe you love Raymond more than I do," Catherine exclaimed teasingly. "I do!" said Jessica. There was no laughter in her face, no merriment in her voice, but Catherine only smiled absently. She was not thinking of Jessica whims and moods. The boat grated ou the shore and Catherine sprang out. But what was this? Instead of following—Instead of fastening the boat, Jessica, retained her seat, the boat backed into the deep water Jessica tase wildly and the htext mdmtint the boat was driftiiig down thfeiijir^T—ctHpfcy:,, She was quite dead when ihey foiitid her body. The lips would never ugaih smile in jesting speech, the brown eyes, uever again sparkle w'th love and merrinient. Raymond could come back to Cath erine now—Annabel B. White, in Chi cago Ledger. Medical Ignoramuses. The eyes of all the world havo been directed to the case of Gen. Grant. It will very seriously impair public con fidence in medical science and skill. At the same time it will encourage afflicted people not to abandon hope of life because the. most learned doo* tors pronounce theiir malady incurable. When their dtictors .give then! up they need not give up themselves. That is the moral of Gen. Grant's ease- .. It encourages the sick and sjiffettog to hope for recovery from their disease Howevjer sad the, grow ings of their medical advisers, provid ed they have the constitution to re cover from their doctors and the good fortune to escape "heroic treatment." iDr. Fordyce Barker, one of the con sulting physicians, still adheres to the cancer theory. But it is in the teeth of other medical opinion and is refuted by the fact that Gen. Grant is recover ing rapidly. It is not a feature of cancer that as soon as doctoring ceases convalescence begins. The learned doctors who hacked and tortured poor Garheld to get out of the front of his body a bullet which had-buried in his back and released itself, kept persisting that the lead had in some mysterious manner found its way from his groin, where their wonderful skill had mislocated it. "Throw physic to the dogs!" was the exclamation of Macbeth. Probably if all the physic the cancer-credulous doctors gave to Gen. Grant had been thrown to the dogs and all their Heretic treatment had been practised on cats the distinguished patient would before now have been (driving in the Park and. indulging in the luxury of a Reiba Victoria. The whole of tliis prolonged case is anything but creditablo to medical Science. We cannot forget that at a consultation Gen. Grant Darely escap ed by his physical weakness from a painful and terrible surgical operation lor cancer, which would havo left him speechless for tho rest of his life, and it is now acknowledged by somo of theso same experts that his is not a case of cancer a~t all. However, if our confidence in tho doctors has been impaired, our fear of cahoot has also been shaken. It is not Within the power of the physicians to tell us how many cases of so-called cancer have been heroically treated to death, which, had they beeil as pub licly watched as this might have turn ed out to be simple cases of ulcerated throat —New York World. The Misused of England There seems no room for doubting that the disease had its origin in Ldndon. Walker Speaks of it as special ly prevaleut in London in his day, and even now it is more bommon ih thg pure cockney dialect (tho most hate ful form of the English language in existence) than anywhere in England. Moreover, its prevalence in other places than London is greater or less accordingly as such places are nearest ot* father from the metropolis Wfl find no trace of it in Cornwall or Wales very little in Cumberland, Northumberland, and Yorkshire. In the midland counties it is less com mon than in the southern It is at its maximum in the heart of Londoti. In this tespect it is like the v-and-W ihrt lady, which even at its height (it has now hearly died out), was never sd badly felt in the provinces as in tlid metropolis though of course, like all metropolitan defects, it spread in gre&tor or less degrees over the whole cduntry^ This being the case, We are justified in assuming that tho disease had at first that form which is characteristic of the faults of language found at great Centers of population, dud especially in the chief city of the nation. If you Wish to hear French clipped and slurr ed you should go to Paris, and German suffers like treatment in Vienna and Berlin. It is the same With English in London. In a great and busy city, men shorten their words and sentences as much as possible, being assured .that what they say will be understood, because all speak the same language and adopt tbe same convenient abbre viations. Thus, just as in Paris cctte femme becomes c'c fme, and Voila ce que e'est becomes Via c1 'g c' est. so in London City Bank become, Cty B'ak, halfpenny is abridged first to ha'penny and then to luijmy or ''apny. Omnibus is shortened into 'bus everyone in it addresses the conductor as 'duclor the conductor shortens the cry of all right into ry, announces the threepenny fare as thripns, and so forth. In fact, it may be laid down as- a general pro position that, although a language be comes modified in provincial places and in colonies, it is only in busy cities, and chiefly in capital cities, that a language is modiiied by clipping and slurring.—May Atlantic. Many Shipwrecks in the .China Sea. The loss of the fine Boston ship Grecian by stranding in the China sea calls attention to the remarkable fatali ty which has attended' voyages in those waters for tho last two or three fv ears. Twenty vessels have been total lost on voyages to or from ports in the China sea during the past thirty months, in which American owners and underwriters had an interest namely: Ships Florida, Ranier, Chocor na Adam M. Simpson, Matchless, G. C. Trufant, Levi C. Wade, Alert, and Grecian barks Jonathan Bourne, Ram bler, Betty Wendt, Georgie Calcutta, Fusileer, Annie Burr, .David, Caradoc, Minnie Allen, and steamship Jolani. Of these vessels fifteen were owned wholly or in part in Boston. Three were burned, three abandoned in a sinking condition, one foundered, one missing, one condemned at a port of distress, and eleven stranded. The aggregate value of these vessels, with the cargo and freights, will probably exceed 92,000,000. This record does not include foreign ships loaded for foreign account There have also been numberless losses in these waters which have cost owners and under writers enermous amounts, but which have not been total. No one branch of the world's commerce shows such a record of disaster as this in proportion to the number of vessels engaged in it Whether the late earthquakes have beea more extended in their effects thu ia known, or whether the level of tbe bottom is slowly rising, is left to scientists to determine, but it is cer tain that disasters by striking on reefs not laid down on the charts are very nth more frequent than they were previous to the last three years, if cap tains1 protests cfMI tie trusted.—Boston FACT AND FANCY.

Sis "Dowdy" Wife. One of the many romances associated with the English peerage began in a gambling debt. The Earl of Cadogan had won a large sum of money from the Duke of' Richmond, but offered to cancel the debt, if the duke would con sent to the marriage of his son to the earl's daughter. The offer was accepted. Tho Earl of March, the son, was called home from school and the young lady from lier nursery. When they arrived, a fciergytnan was in attendance, and they jfrefe told that tlley were immediately to bectime man add wife. "Sorely, you, &re not going to inarry me to that dowdy!" exclaimed the boy, but the young liidy uttered not a word. As soon as the ceremony was over, it Sost-chaise A carried Lord March o&, with is tutor, to make the tour of Europe, while his young wife was sent back to the nursery. The groom spent some years abroad. On his return to London, instead of seeking his bride, he went to the opera. While amusing himself with surveying the company through his glass, he was struck with the beauty of a young woman in one of the boxes. Turning to a gentleman beside him,'he asked Who she was. "Yon must be'a stranger in lioddon," tejilied the gentleman, "not to know the. belle of. the town, the bearitiful Lady March!" The earl, agreeably surprised, went to the box, announced himself, and claimed as his bride the dowdy from whom he had turned years before. The strangely united couple lived so happily together that the wife died of a broken heart within a year of the death of her husband.

A correspondent of the Boston Her ald, who does not take the trouble to go into details, contributes this sur prising information: "Perhaps the most wonderful timepiece ever heard of is a clock described by a Hindoo Rajah as belonging td a native princess of Upper India. In front of the clock disk was a gon£, swung on poles, and near it was a pile of artificial limbs. The pile was made up of the full num ber of parts of twelve perfect bodies, but all lay heaped together in seeming confusion. Whenever the hands of the clock indicated the hour 1, out from.the pile crawled just the num ber of parts to form the frame of one man part joining itself to part with quick metallic cl and, when com pleted, the figur sprang up, seized a small mallet, anc walking up to the fong, struck 1, tie first hour.
