VIVA'S LANDLORD.
" Vivo, dear, it's coming near the firs,
of May ! "
And gontle Mrs. Earner laid down
the coat that was perpetually beooming
elbowless, and looked across the lamp
lit table with auxious eyes.
"Yes, mamma, I know," a triflt
wearily.
Viva, a slender, pretty girl, with dark
brown hair gathered loosely behind
shell-pink ears, and lips red ns t lit
cactus flower, met her mother's gaze
with eyes bright with wistful thought
fulness. "And wo must move, of course," cried
a shrill young voice from the sofa, where
sat Jessie, a volatile, overgrown school
girl, I because the front gate's off its
hinges, and the roof leaks, and"
"Yes, Jessie, wo all know the rea
sons, for moving, but give mamma an
opportunity to suggest where."
" Thero's hardly much choice about
that," the pale-faced little woman said
sadly. "Some place where the rent
would be moderate; but" a sudden
look of longing sliining out of the pain
worn face " I would give all the world,
dear, to see the country again. I feel
stifling here."
A gleam of quick determination came
into Viva's velvety-brown eyes.
" And so you shall, mamma I " she
said, emphatically.
"My darling, how?" in mild sur
prise. " Well" Viva puckered up her low,
white brow, and triod to look wise and
businoss-liko " yon see we could get a
cottage in somo of tho suburban vil
lages at half what a city houso would
cost Besides everything is so mnc!i
cheaper in tlio country, and we could
return to tho city the coming wintor.
There I"
" But your pupils, yiva ?"
"I could manage to give ajl the les
sons in threo days of the woek taking
tho train iu, jrotl know, is almost as
cheap and do work (orUramley the in
torvoning days. Now, mamma!" tri
umphantly. " It looks plausible at urst sight, my
pot, but I'm almost afraid to hope
Dear, dear ! how that boy does, wear out
his clothos."
Viva canio over and cla'-ood two
maroon merino aram around the invalid
figure before lfeW""
"Hopo as much as you libo, mamma
darling," sho cried, gayly; ' for we'll
watch the papers till we sec a treasure
advertised 'cheap' in italics, vou know
and then"
Tho rest was too glorious to describe.
Threo days later, Viva danced in, out
of a blinding April shower, with rose
rod cheeks and starry eyes.
" Hero it is, mamma," sho cried,
onigmatic.tlly, with a hearty kiss and
hug that almost demolished tho small
figure iu tho arm-chair. " Now listen !"
And from the open piper of that
morning, she read aloud:
rri) Mod IN SUBURBAN VILLAGE,
A Twenty minutes ride from tho city, on
eight-room colliign, with garden attained,
Vhrnp, to good tenant. Apply to Clilford
Chalulos, lloom lit, 74 E fk, City.
"I am suro this will suit 'clutap,' in
alitics, as I said mamma. Yon will have
our happy oountrylled summer, after
all," with an exultant little laugh.
"Now, for a while, good-bye I"
"Whore are you going, dear?"
"To soo about this, manima. Les
sons are over"
"Yw, but I do not qnito like your
going alone, Viva."
L "What I An old-tuaid music teacher
liko me? I almost acquire the diguily
of ago in this voluminous waterproof
and irrren voil. Greeu I Just think of
it ! I might as well have red hf.ir and
spectacles. My nervous old daHhxr,
I'll be back before you know I'm gone."
And with this decidedly sweeping,
but scarcely possible assertion, she was
out again under the rifting, drifting
April sky, and going cityward as faat as
the street cars could take her.
In the thickest, busiest portion of tho
city, up two flight of dingy stain went
Viva.
A timid knock at Room 12.
"Dome in!"
Bhe turned tho handle, and with the
green veil well down, went in.
Two or three gentlemen, writing at
baic-covered desks, looked up care
. bs sho entered, and Went on with
their work.
A gent it 'Mian oimlopod in clouds of
i ii ir nnoke, with ft-ot considerably ele
vated al'ove the level of hia head,
glanced toward tho door, as the grace
ful figure in threadbare waterproof
OHM timidly in. Down came the fer-f,
out went the cigar, and Clifford Chando.",
pushing a chair forward, bowed gravely,
qucitioningly, to the lady before him.
" I I called to inquire aliout a cottage-
advertised."
" The cottage V Oh, yes, to bo sure !
Will yon pleaso to bo seated, and I will
give you the particulars r"'
And Viva, taking the proffered seat,
listened while the tall, grave man, with
straight, black brows and keen, kindly
eyes, explained the tonus with rJeasant
courtesy.
And when sho lifted the obnoxious
green veil a moment, to conclude somo
necessary arrangement, Clifford Chandos
started ever so slightly as ho saw the
pretty, girlish face before him, as serene
and diguitied in its grave, business-like
composure as though its owner were
eight-and-lifty instead of eight-and-teu.
"When will you look at the pi oe,
Miss-"
" Rayner !" supplemented-Vivt.
" Miss Rayner. Shall we say to-morrow
at one ?"
" At two, if as convenient."
" Certainly. Two, if preferable."
Theu he held the door open as courte
ously as though she wore sealskin and
diamonds, while with a quiet grace she
bowed slightly and passed from the
room. f g j
And Clifford Chandos went slowly
buck to his chair, a softer light in his
keen gray eyes, and actually for once
in his life forgot to relight his cigar.
'
The day came at last when, from the
stufl'y .city house, the Eayners moved to
tho pretty, roomy, raftered cottage,
where honeysuckle and wild roses strag
gled at their own sweet will over roof
aud porch.
And Viva, coming home from the
dusty city three evenings in the woek,
pale and tirod, brightened and laughed
her own low, happy laugh at the sight
of her mother's face grown young
again at tho window, at tho sound of
Dick and Jessie's boisterous laughter.
It was ourtous all the repairing that
cottago needed after they moved in. It
was moro curious that their qniot, hand
some landlord should insist on super
vising it all himself.
He grew into their simple lives in
those days. Mrs. Rayner came to think
I ho cheery voice better than any medi
cino, the children to shout lustily at
sight of him, and Viva to listen for the
sound of his firm footstep on the gar:
den path.
One evoning, when the soft May wind
was swaying tho " lady-fingers," as tho
children call thorn, over the door, Viva
snatched up hot hat and strolled down
to the protty rustio gate.
Just a little more tired than usual
after a desperate struggle to teach an ir
ritably obtuso pupil tho mysteries of
crotchets and quavers and demi-scmiqua-vers.
Bhe stood there, a fair, girlish figure
in her soft white dress, a great bunch of
blue ineaduw-violets at her slender throat
and waist. The scented wind gently
loosened tho dark -brown hair and blew
a fitful drift of rose-bloom. into the
pure, palo faoc.
Very pretty?
Well, Clifford Chandos thought so,
at all events, as he came along the un
evon country road with his light, firm
tootfall.
" Good evening, Miss Raynor t"
Bho turned suddenly, tho faint flush
deepening to carnation.
"Good evening, Mr. Chandos!"
I think a person can give ono a vofy
tolerable shako hands without holding
one's fingers quite a minute. Rut ap
parently Mr. Chandos thought differ
ently. "Mis Rayner, will yon come for a
walk -just a little way down the rood?
There is a show place there I should
like to have you see."
He asked pleadingly, hurriedly, us
though fearful of a refusal.
"Is it far?"
"No," eagerly; "qnito near. Resides
Miss Viva, I have something to tell you
or, rather, ask yon."
They were already strolling slowly
on. She paused and looked up in vague
alarm.
"To ask me. Mr. Chandos?"
" Yes. Viva, I want to ask von to
leave Rose cottago."
Was he mad ?
"To leavo Rose cottage I" she re
peated, blankly.
She stopped short, and looked up at
him with brown, bewildered yes.
"Are jou not jatisficd with us u
tenants? What will mamma say ?''
" I did not ask your mother to leave
Rose cottage " and his voice was trem
bling and low "I asked you!"
" Mo ? Why, Mr. Chandos"
Bhe broke off abruptly as she saw the
look in tho eyes of tho man regarding
her. Such a look as would make more
successful wooers in the world to-day
a look of passionate love and resolute
determination to have her in spite ul
herself.
"Viva, my darling my darling!" he
cried, all the mischief in his voice swept
away in his fiery earnestness, " won't
you understand ? Hove you very dearly.
Viva, and I want you for my wife !"
"Yes I understand," she taid, simply.
"I am not a rich man, doar, but i
would give my life to make you happy !"
She looked r.p at him with bright,
outshining eyes, and though her cheekt
flamed hotly, she said, in her gentle,
straightforward, girlish way :
" I would be honored to be your wife
wore yon penniless, Mr. Chaudos 1"
"Mr. Chandos!" sternly. "Little
wife, say 'Clifford !' "
And, her hand in his, sho said it,
simply :
"Clifford!"
In a short time they paused before a
massive entrance gate and pretty gothic
lodge.
"This is tho great place of the neigh
borhood, Viva. Shall we go up and
look at it?"
They pausod at tho great stone steps
of an ideal country-seat, stretching,
veranduhed, porticoed, with huge stone
lions on guard at the door.
"Come in, dear!" holding out his
hand, with a curious smile.
"Rut tho owner?"
"I go with his permission."
Then, passing the sorvant at the door,
he led her through rooms where the
mighty touch of Midas was softened and
made perfect by tho mightier touch o
taste. Through a conservatory where
birds and flowers were drowsily fall
ing asleep, and marble statues gleamod
palely forth from tropical, dusky nooks,
"It's a handsome place, dear, isn't
it?" ho asked, when once again they
stood 'neath the daening sky.
"Handsomo? Oh, Clifford!" with
an ecstatic, long-drawn breath.
"I hardly know how much rent I
ought to charge you, little woman," he
cried, quizzically, drawing her closer to
him; "but Til be moderate. Suppose
we say ono thousand kisses per an
num !"
"Yours!" she gasped. "You said
you were not rich."
"Well, not Rothschild nor Vander
bilt, love, but," with a sudden change
of tone, "richer than all the world,
sweetheart, in you."
So, after all, Viva graces a home
worthy of her. And Jessio sen'tontiously
remarks: ,
" TwM well we moved."
And Viva nods aud smiles as she slips
her little sparkling hand into her hus
band's loving clasp.

"I want to tell yon how my child's
life was saved np in the mountains the
other day," said an old farmer who came
into the Appeal ofllce yesterday. "You
don't mind an item with a Bnake in it,
do you ?" Hearing no reply, the old
man continued : "Last Tuesday I was
coming down from the lake with my
little girl, when I stopped the horse and
(jot out to get a drink at a spring, my
bottle having given out. While I was
drinking the horse got frightened and
dashed down the roed with the child in
the wagon. I only have twelve girl,
sir, and wouldn't spoil tho set for worlds.
Well, I gave up the horse and child for
lost, but I followed them up, and pre
sently found the horse right on the edge
of.n precipice, at a dead standstill. He
couldn't move an inch. When I got
closer I thought that a strap had caught
round his fetlock and one end had also
caught round a tree. I went to pull on
the strap, and I jumped about ten feet,
forbnst ine clear open if it wasn't a rat
Ueanakq that was holding the horse.
He had wound his trail around the
horse's leg and his nock was turned
three times around a sappliug and his
teeth were fast in the wood. He was
twelve f aot long, sir, for I measured him
right then and there. A few pounds
moro strain would have snapped the
snake in two. I got the horse away
from the precipice. And I m a
well tell you the whole truth. The
snake wasn't over five feet long, for
when I took the strain off ho came right
back to his natural size. You know
how clastic a snake is. Tho child is
four years old and wasn't frightened in
the least. If you put this item in the
ll'tysend me four copies I want 'em
for relatives in the East." Carson

Paper Pulp from Wood.
The following interesting description
of th'e process of making wood pulp is
from an account of tho opening of the
Thorold Pulp l'apcr Company's estab
lishment, published by the Thorold
Post, Canada:
The wood, four feet in length and of
any thickness, is brought in at the base
ment, placed in the barking-jack (one
stick at a time), where two men, with
draw knives, rapidly peel off the bark.
It is then conveyed by the elevator to
the first floor, sawed in two-foot lengths
with cross cut saws, passed on to the rip
saw, where it is slabbed (that is, a small
portion of wood oh opposite sides taken
off), to permit its resting firmly iu the
grinding engine. It is then passed to the
boring machine (an upright and a one
half inch auger, with foot attachment
driven by power), where the knots are
bored out. The wood is then placed in
racks of the same size as the receptacle
in the grinding engine, and carried out
to tho ground. Tho grinding engines
are upright, and receive at a following
one-twentieth of a cord of wood.
Tho wood is placed in a receptacle,
and by a simple, variable automatic feed
process is pressed flat-wise between two
outward revolving rolls, composed of
solid emery, which are flooded with a
spray of water, carrying off the fibrilized
pulp in a stream through revolving
screens to the tank or stuff chost in the
basement. It is then pumpod ud into a
vat that forms part of the wet machine.
In this vat is constantly revolving a
large cylinder with fino brass wire cloth,
which picks up the particles of pulp out
of the water and places them on tho felt
(an endless piece of woolon goods which
makes between rolls, for different pur
posos, a continual circuit of the wet ma
chine). On tho cylinder is turning a
hoavy roll, called the concha; between
tho two, where they meet, the cylinder
leaves the pulp, with most of the water
pressed from it.
The pulp now makos its appearanoe
on tho felt above tho concha roll in a
beautiful sheet, thirty-eight inches in
width, and is carried along in a stoay
flow a distance of about oight foet, where
it passes between but not boyond two
henvy rollers, tlia upper iron, the lower
wood, it adherafi. to tho upper roll,
which Is constantly turning, wrapping
it up, and when a sufficient thickness
is attained, is cut oil' by a knife being
pressed to the toll, attached to the ma
chino for that purpose. It now leaves
the roll in a thick white sheet, which is.
fooeived by the boy in attendance on a
table conveniently attached to tho ma
chine, and folded into sheets fourteen
Jy twenty-six inches. It is then plaeod
on scales until the weight is one hun
dred pounds, when it is placed in tho
press and firmly tied into square, com
pact bundles. It is now ready for ship
ment to the paper mill, to bo made in
to printing and tea paper. The wood
paper pulp has been placed in the mar
ket, and found a ready sale.
According to the London World the
st.hetic people who havo furnished

How to keep Cool.
As warm weather approaches, we de
vise all sorts of plans to keep cool, and
by very earnestness defeat our purpose.
To be cool, one must be tranquil and
avoid unnecessary exertion. The pru
dent housekeeper will makQ her morn
ing fire suffice to do the chief part of
the cooking for the day. Culd boiled
meats, cold vegetables, cold desserts for
dinner, when that meal comes in the
middle of the day, are in order. Pota
toes made into salad are not to be
scorned by any lover of that vegetable.
If a cup of hot tea or coffee is desired, it
can bo made on an oil stove, and such
food as is prepared warm can bo warmed
over. Rut custom renders cold food as
palatable as, and during hot weather
evcu more palatable than hot food is iu
cold weather. A little persistence on
the part of the house-mother will prove
this the case, and the experiment is
certainly worth trying. Farmers' wives
who stew over tho stove in mid-summer
noons have a harder time of it than far
mere do in the fields, and there is no
necessity for this. Iced tea and coffee
and milk are as delicious as hot tea and
coffee when one's palate is accustomed
to thorn. The hardest part of the work
should bo done in tho morning, if pos
sible, and if you can lie down for awhile
in the heated part of the day, so much
tho better. Plenty of sleep, with fre
quent baths, will enable almost any one
to bear the warm weather philosophi
cally. Gardens for ( hildi-cn.
All children lovo flowers, and take
delight in cultivating them if Riven the
opportunity. How infinitely more en
tertaining such a study as botany or
vegetable physiology might be made if
the dry teaching of the class-room and
lesson-book wero illustrated by the
plants that went being coaxed into
bloom iu their own flower-beds. What
a pretty combination of outdoor and in
door employment, again, for a child to
cultivate flowers, and then to draw them
in outline as they come into bloom.
What could possibly be a more health
ful and wholesome occupation for an
intelligent child to collect the prettiest
of wild flowers from their native pas
tures and hedgerows, and cultivate
them, in the "wild garden" at home?
All sorts of knowledge might bo gath
ered up in such a pursuit, involving as
it would the necessity for observations
of the favorite haunts of the various
flowers, the effects of different soils,
their mode of propagation, seasons of
bloom, etc., and the inquiry might often
be made to lead away into collateral
topics the folk-lore associated with
them, fairy tales and poet fancies and
historical associations. Then, again,
how easy and appropriate, to make flow
ers the means of drawing out sympathy
with neighbors, or with the sick and
suffering at a dirftaoe. And again, the
cultivation of flowers always exercises a
refreshing influence.
The Original Penny.
The old, old penny in England, as in
other countries, was of silver, and its
appearance thoroughout tho earliest
time of its history would rat her astonish
those who know nothing of numismatic
love. Eroni the Saxon times, in which
it was the only piece of silver extant,
till those of Edward L, it was stamped
with a square cross. This enabled tho
coin to be readily broken into halves or
quarters, which then served the pur
pose of halfpenco or farthings. Rut tho
latter coin was not much inferior to tho
value of tho present English penny, in
asmuch as the unbroken piece was valu
ed at one-thirtieth of a mark, or three
pence storling. At this time five of
them soem to havo made a skilliug, or
shilling, so that tho relations between
what are now chief English silver and
bronze coins has entirely altered in the
course of six conturios. King Edward,
who reformod the coinage, liko every
thing else, was the first to issue pennios
without the l&dented cross ; and to mate
up for tho loss of tho queor-sliaped half
pennies and farthings hitherto in uso,
supplemented the silver coinage with
circular pieces, bearing the samo value
and denomination. Ho fixed tho stand
ard of the penny, moroovor, by ordering
that it should weigh thirty-two grains of
woll-grown wheat, or, which was a more
accurate tost, that twenty pennios should
weigh ono ounce.
A Meagre Exeunt-.
Tho young man who pleads poverty
and a meagre salary as an excuso for re
fraining from marriage will do well to
remember tho pluck of Thomas A.
Scott, tho great railroad magnate, and
Charles A. Dana, tho groat journalist.
The former embarked upon tho matri
monial sea with a salary of fifty dollars
per month and the latter with a salary
of five dollars per woek. Marriage,
however, was not the only thing that
made these mon IBOOeed. Bvffdo Ex

Don't trouble yourselves about the
details of your business. Leave small
things to small minds. You were born
to be at the top, and of course a way
will bo provided for getting you there.
If you would mako your mark in the
world, never learn to write.
Do you wish to be men? Learn to
chew, smoke and drink. It will be
hard to distinguish yon from tho real
article.
Always boar in mind that you are
made of superior clay, and it will not
be long ere everybody will be forced to
admit it.
It is well for you to know that the
girls are all dying for you. You cannot
but pity them, but then it is not your
fault. This should teach you resigna
tion. Strive to get all tho leisure time yon
can. It will make older and busier
persons envy you.
Speak your mind freely. It shows
that you possess such an article.
Characterize as nonsenso everything
that you cannot understand. You will
find a great deal of nonsense in the
world.
Never fear to do wrong. Don't be a
coward. Always do tho right thing
when tho right thing will pay.
When you havo anything to do, don't
hurry about doing it. Take your own
time, or your employer's, which is the
same thing. If ho discharges you, you
will have the satisfaction of knowing
that he will be the loser by not having
your valuable services.
Make acquaint ances only among those
beneath you, if you can find such. It is
pleasant to be looked up to as an oracle
or patten).
Shun those who are able to teach yon
anything in life or business. It is not
agreeable to be overshadowed by any
body. Reside, who wants to be in
school all his life ?
Be above politeness. That will do
well enough for women and children ;
but a man should despise all suoh fool
ishness. People who talk about sticking to
principle are humbugs or ninnies.
Never mind principle where money is
to bo made.
Never stop to consider. Make up
your mind at once. It shows prompti
tude of decision.
Having once made up your mind,
stick to your decision. People may call
you an obstinate mule, but words harm
nobody. If you are pig-headed, others
may suffer, but you never.
Stand up for your rights, especially
among women and timid folk. You may
yield a point where tho other party is
stronger than you are.
Watch carefully over your passions.
A man without passions would be a dull
creature.
Don't bo too squeamish about telling
tho truth. Only noodles never lie.
Endure others' trials patiently.
Fight life's battles in the easiest way.
Remember that it is the sutler, and not
tho soldier, who makos money out of
war.
Never injure your health by hard
work. If you must lose it, lose it in a
pleasant way.
Honor your father and your mother
by showing to them how much wiser
you aro than they. You can do this in
no easier way than by rejecting all their
counsel and admonition.
Take every occasion to denounce re
ligion and morality as humbugs and
shams, and everyone who upholds them
as a hypocrite and impostor. Every
body loves a frank, open nature.
Believe all you hoar dorogatory of
another's character. The Bible, you
know, says that mankind is naturally
depraved.
If you hear anything against a porson,
repeat it to as many as you can. It is
well to put people on their guard.
In tho company of ladies, talk freely
of liquor saloons, ballot girls and pokor
playing. Ladies naturally take I o such
young gentlemen. They aro so inter
esting. Don't go to church if you can avoid
it ; but if you must go, take care to
show your intelligent contempt for tho
worship and the worshippers.
Follow these few directionB, boys, and
you will at least attain a high position iu
the -vorld. It may bo the gallows, but it
will bo a high place, nevertholoBs.
