Tho owScholnrJ " Glrls, what do you thinki wo aro to have a new scholar I" said Florence Mac farland, entering the schocJ-roorn iu a somewhat oxcited manner. "How did you hear tho'news, Flo?" asked Georgie Hamilton. "Ihope it is to be eome ono wo sliall lifco." " I can't say for certain, but just aa I had fiuished practicing and waa coining out of the musio-rootu I overlieard Misa Walker ask Mra. Enaloy about the new scholar that waa to bo here soon, and what claases they shoold put hor m. Mrs. Ensley said sometbing about her being delicate and not rauch advanced in her etudiea." " Oh, I 8hould not wonder if it was Ida Bowman I" exclaimed Suaie Ileod. " Ida Bowman ; who iaaho?" aaked a ohorus o voioea. " AVhy, haven't you heard of the Bow mana who have receutly oome here ?" " Do you mean thoae now-comora who have bought the Miller property and for warded auch olegant furniture from Boston 7" "Yeo. Some of the family came on laat woek. They were in ohurch on Sun day and looked quite atyliah. Mother says tUero is an only daughtir about my age, l)ut sho ia in rather delicate health and rjid not come on at once, aa sho ia undei1 the dootor's care." " fhen, Suaie, I preaume it waa of her Jurs. fcnsiey spofce with so much feeling, repjied Florence Macfarland. " She aaid socnetliing about nervous proatration, and grefat care needed in not overtaaking her atrengin, tnougn ane waa ratlier behind' hVtnd with her atudiea." " Yes, certainly ; it muat be Ida Bow man who is corning here to school," added Georgie Hamilton. And the matter waa diacussed with pleasure until the bell rang lur scnooi. " The JMiller manaion," aa it waa called, was an elegant reaidence aet back upon a high knoll and surrounded by fine old treea. There was a broad carriage drive up to the house, encircling a smoothly- mown lawn, with here and there a few choice blooming shruba. It was upon thia lawn that Suaie Reed firat aaw the little girl of whom they had been talking. " Girls, she has come 1 Ida Bowman haa comel I saw her on my way to sohool. And she is just lovely i" It 1171 J! J f nn i) ucro um you aee nor r anu, uo aescnbe her to usl ' were the exclama' t'ss 'xiit greeted Suaie Reed. " I saw her upon the lawn. She waa in a whoel-chair. Her lap waa full of llowers, and a splendid Newfoundland uog aeemea to De on guara. unce or twice he actually went behind her chair and puahed it aa she directed him. They made a beautuul picture. for Ida has long jrolden rinclets and she was ele- gantly dresaed in lihgt blne silk or some- ining ot the kind." "I wonder if she is a cripple," said Georgie Hamilton. " Well, we must pet and make much of her, for it will be splendid to have a rich and ariatocratic gin in our acnooi. we've naa so many puur ones 01 laie tnat i ueciare H mafces our school-room actually look dingy." " So, Georcrie. vou are for havintr onlv bright butterlliea of fashion about you? " aaid a pleaaant voice near the group of glrls. Georgie looked up and felt somewhat abaahed as aho saw MIbs Walker, who, unnoticed, had entered the room where' the few who usually went together were early asaembled. " Don't you think beauty and wealth attractive, Miss Walker? " aaked Flora Alacfarlaud. Lertainly, m eome respects. But you muat remember haudsome is that hand- some does,' and in a school of thia kind it ia very invidioua to form companionship by Buch criterions. I have noticed of late, and much regret, that little cliquea are lorraed among you, and that some plainly dreased but otherwiae bright achol ars are receiving the cold shoulder. I fihouid be extremely sorry, if Ida BoW' man s coming adds to this feeling of ex omalveneas, simply becausa her father happens to be blesaed with a large ahare ui tuta woria s weaun.' As AUas Walker ceaaed speaking the puuuut uuii raug.

".uut theu," she mentally said. " Sua ia Iteed. Flo Mftnfar. land and Kate Bryant have such a way of making othera follow in their lead." A new influence, however. waa to come among them. Ida Bowman, in her little wueei-cnair, propeiieu by a pleaaant ap pearlng nurse, and headed bv the statelv Nowfoundland dog, daily made their ap pearance at the school-room door, where Ida waa left for a few recitations. She was not exaotly a cripple, but had fallen out of herswing and badly hurt her thigh. Ihe fright was a shock to hor nervous system.Bo she was very ill after it. It left her BOmewhat WOak anil flnllnntn nnrl aa the thigh was still a little painful, tho dootor objected to her uaing it rauch until she grew atronger, so sho spent moat of her time out of doors in hor wheel-chair, yyihi iioiu iui uer cumpamou. ouaie neeu, as near neit?hbnr. wah nl moat ofllcioualy pollte to the little strangor.

To tne aurprlso of tho exclusivo clique, tha noijf uucs wnuiii wiey nau silcliteu aa al moat beneath their notlco, Ida would gatner around her at recesa, and ahare with them hor fruit, nuts and candy. " Why, she is not the loaat blt proud or stuck np, llko somo of tho girls," said Beaaio Clark. "No, indeed," added Carrlo AVood. " She talked aa sweetly to mo yestorday as though I was dressed in silk. I don't beliovo aho would hurt our feolings by calliug ua ' tho calico girls,' as somo of tho glrls havo dono, becauso wo can't dross aa flno as thoy do." " Sho is a dearlittlo lady," said anothor. " Mother says no truo lady ia ever proud or stuck up." " That's so," reapondod Bessie. "And I do believe ahe ia a good little Christian, too, for sho is gentlo and patient oven when in pain, and never gota paasionately angry, as some of the girls do at the loast thing. She looked so sorry tho other day, when Susio Ileod got raad about somothlng and almost struck Jenny Marsli. I heard hor softly say, 'Tho Bible teachoa us to lovo one anothor.' " Ida Bowman was indeed a mystery and atudy to them all ; and it waa not long boforo her influence for good waa felt iu tho achool, and tho proud, haughty girls found that, if they would make frionds with Ida Bowman. it mnst be in a differ- ent way from the exoluaivo ono they had devised and talked over. Miss Walker and Mrs. Enaley also noticed with pleas ure tho greater harmony among their pu- pils, and remarlteu : " llow true lt is that a nttio leaven leaveneth tho wholo. Ida Bowman shows ns this by almost unconsciously scattor ing about her good soeds that are begin- ning to bear ricli lruits.' Anu thua the new scholar proveu a blessing to them all by her sweet, gentle, Christliko ways. New York Observer. tiv dvcrLiincmmUu Jjfrw dvcvjtscmmtti. In Full Bloom! I I I I I I I I I I I 0 Joo's Clilll. Sometimea whou Joo comea liotno from achool he is a wild Indian, sometimes ho is a llocky Mountain grizzly, sometimea he ia an honest minor. Uue night he bounded into the yard with a yell and ruahed into tho house more liko a " norther " than anything else. Tho doors tore open as though of themaelvea, but wouldn't shut : the cbairs fell down and one or two tables and work baskets went over. llis older sister said, "O Joel" and put her nngers m her ears, and tho cat ran under the sofa. Only tho baby liked it. Ho crowed and anuealed, trving to make as much noiso in his way as Joe himaelf. " 1m on the debate 1 I'm on tho debato I Whlch ia more uaeful, the hor80 or the cow, that ia the queation wo have got to diBcuas, and we choae aidea and I chose the horae. Tho borse 1 I reckon I did choose the horae 1 I'd give more for a pony to-day, if it waan't biggor than arat, than I would for all the old cows this side of sunsise. i m to und out all l can about horses, about shoeing them and what they do with their hair and how many toeth they havo and everything liko that," said Joe. "Allkindsof horses? Saw-horaes and clothes-horsea and the horae marine?" asked Jiin. Joe did not answer. Ile waa already reading from Johnson'a cyclopedia : " Ita perception ia quick, ita memory retentivo and it is capable of much affection. It is surpassed in docility by no animal, except the dog and perhapa the elephant. Ita fleah ia often used for lood." After thia Joo did not aay much to his family, but was running after the black smith and stable-men, or reading booka on natural history. So at laat came tho evening for debate. Everybody waa ready, father, mother, Jim and Susan and Cora, but where was Joe? "Joaoyl Joseyl" called hia mother. "Come, where are you? Wo are all ready." " Where w Joe? I haven t aeen him." said Susan. "Probably heis off some where bv him- self speaking over his piece," answered tho mother, fondlv. Thon his father called, and upon that Joe replied. " Here i am, said he, trom behind the kitchen stove, where he aat curled up in a dreary tooKing uuncn. i aon i Deneve i can go; I don't feel well; I feel liko I'm going to have a chill." " O Joe 1" cried Cora, " when vou ve cot your side all ready so beautiful. That is dreadiul. fllayn't 1 say it for you ? Can't I, mother?" Joe shivered and held his hands out toward the fire, but did not anawer. " fatart alone children. vou and mother. I'll overtakeyou," aaid the father. " Joe," he continued when the door had cloaed after them, " I wouldn't civo up to it. When I was a boy there wero no lvceums or debating clubs where I lived, and noth ing to draw me out to speak. And now, when I am a man, I can't do it. I'd give all the horses I have, and cows too, if I'd learned to talk in public when I waa young. Nobody minda it, if a boy doea break down and stammer somo; but ho can never begin so easilv when he is i man. Come, my son, put on your hat and go with me." Joe turned red and ho turned white. but he put on his hat, and pulling it well down over his eyea followed his father. iU every step ho thought he could not tako another forward, but something seemed to be pulling him along. The school-houae appeared also to be coming to meet him, and they were there before ho had quite made up his mind to turn baclt. Uo entered the loncr. low hall, wishing that it was nothing worae than being shot or hung that was before him. Ilo was oulte over hia chill uow, or olse the fever had set in, and his beart beat bo hard he wondered tho next boy didn't hear it wd look around. But still every thing went right on. The three who wero to decide the question wero ohosen, and aeated on tho platform besido the preaideut and tho dobate opened. Then Joe'fl turn carae. Aa ho walked forward the boarda of the floor appeared to riae before him, bo he was nct sure where he should step, and immediatelv the room Beeined full o eyes. They were all friendly eyes, however, and what if Joe did forgtt all the fine turusMie had made betorehand t And what if his aentences did get so tangled that he had to stop suddenly and becin over acain. Everv- bpdy smued on instead of at him, and ap- piauaea wueu ne naa nnianed, luat aa though he had dono aa well aa he meant to. They all took it bo aa a matter of cour80,that in a few days ho had almost for- ?;otten hia little bluudera and moitifica ions, and when the next dobat9 came off waa not half so fnghtoned. Some of our most popular leoturers havo said that they never face an audl enco without a feeling of droad. So it is not strauge, if Joe has not yet thrown off all shyness about speaking. But he doean't givo up to lt, and his lather baa neariy decided to let him study law. " For I'd liko a business that will givo mo a chanoo to spouty aays Joo.
