Well, sho must wait, that's all." " I would not mako her wait, if I were you, lloso," said Miss Grace ltowan, loob ing tip from her Bewinff. " Whv. it is onlv ten dayB," aaid Rose " Tapa alwavs cives me my allowance on tho firat dav of the month, and to-day is the twenlv-nrst." " Neverthelp.ss I wonld pav her bill to-dav." said Misa Rowan, earnestlv. " If it will bo of any uae to you I wonld muoh rather lend you the money. I can, prob ablv do without it better than she can." " Thank yon, Annt Grace, bnt that would not do at all," said Rose. " AVhen napa consented to Rivfl me a recrnlar al lowance it was on condition that I shonld never borrow n penny of any onp. Bnt why aro you so anxiou1 that the bill should be paid at once ? Do you know anything abont this eirl that yon are so sure shp is in noea 01 ine monpv t " " No," said Miss Rowan, " I know noth ine about her. It is only on eeneral crinciplpfl that I am speakinpr. Not ex- actly, either. If you choose I will tell you why I never doiay a day in payine a bill sent in by a poor person, above all bv a poor yonng cirl." "A storv,'' said Rose, eaylv. "Ob, that is delichtful : I ara as fond of stories now as I was at ten years old. It just coraes at the riprht time, too, for mamma wauts me to fiuioh this table-cloth, and I do cet so tired of theso conventional bor ders, just tho same thing ovor and ovpr, but a story will make me foreet it. Do eo on, auntv." Rose settled hersolf comfortably in her low sewme-chair, and dropped her dark lashes over her prettv blue eyes. Aunt -rfc?jp!rfiUed a little at her eagerness, then sienpti laintly and began her taie. " It !is a stbrv of the davs when I was an elderly yonne girl. living at home with my pfirents," she said. " And the heroine of tha story you remember those flower paintAnes which vou have bo often ad- mirpjd at ray home. Rose ? " "iRemember thera? Of course I do, Thise eTeat velvetv pansies with the dew dnips standine upon their pnrplo petals. Aind the sweet peas, with rines of daintv j.lu8h over tremulous white, looking as if a breath would blow them away. And, oh aunty I those exquisite maple-buds and catkins, the soft, furry white 'pussies,' mineled with the brieht poarlot of the bursting buds. It is like a dream of early spring. But how do they come into yonr story, aunty ? " asked Rose, lifting wide eyes of mterest to her aunt's tace. "Only because the palnter of those pictures is the heroine of it," said Aunt Grace. " Cara Ilastines was her name. She was much younger than I, an orphan, fighting her way single-handed with the world. PrettyY Well, rather prettv, not very. She had a slight, gracefnl figure, dark, wiatfnl eyes set in a small, pale face, flexible, tremulous lips, and a profu- Bion oi soit, dark, wavy hair, which framed her broad forehead like a cloud. "I met ner hrst at tne studio oi a friend, and, in spite of the two years dif- ference in our ages, we took a mutual lancy to eacn otner. Atter tnat l was often at her Btudio, poor little bare place that it was 1 One room eerved for every. thing kitchen, parlor, Btudio, bed-room, yes, and reception roora lor ner pupila A broad lounge served for her bed at night, and one corner of the room was cnrtained off to conceal her toilette ap- paratus. Her cooKing, sucn as it was was accompliahed npon a small kerosene stove, wnicn, when not it use, she kept iu her closet. A poor little place, as I said, but Cara was very happy in it. She loved her work, and she had one of those bright, happy dispositiona which make their own sunshine. She often talked to me of her pupils, bnt the one of whom she spoke oftonest was Mand X. I knew tho namo well, for the father of this Maud was one of tbe most promtnent clerey' men in the city where wo both lived. Everv one reapected him, irrespectivo of denomination. He waa not only an elo queut preacher and a profonnd scholar, of fervid piety and blameless life ; he was also a philanthropiat, a reformer, promi- nent in the tomperance cauae, m the sooi ety for the suppression of vice, in every. thing that was good and noble. Cara often spoke of him with enthusiasm " 1 It is not only that Maud ia such a darling,' she said, ' but I f eel it such an honor to be asaooiated in any way with the lamuy ot such a man r " All this was in the winter. Spring came, ana everyDOdy was leaving town I dld not go, although all my farnily did Blmply because I did not care to. Thero ia such a pleasant feeling and aonso of Bolitude in a large oity tbrough July and Ancuat that I meant to pnt off mv ' out- ing ' until late September. Cara did not gd away either, and we saw a good deal of eaoh other. It was not an unalloyed joy to me, though, for watohing her, I aaw that day by day her uheek erew paler and thlnnor, her step slower, her eye moro levenshiy orignt. " 1 What is the matter with you, Cara,' I often asked anxioualy, but she only smiled and protested that nothing ailed her, that sno was oniy a mue ttred with the hot weather; when fall oame she would be hersolf aeain. "Iurged her togooutof town, or at least to corao and Btay for a whilo with me in our large, ompty houso. but no. " ' 1 must work, you know,' said Cara, ' must work harder than ever now, that my pupils have all loft me for tho Bnm mor. I could not work with you. Mv mind would bo continually disturbed, and No, no, mv studio is muoh tho best place for mo.' "'But why work so hard ?' I said, 1 Why not take a holiday 7 Your leasons of last winter suroly bronght you in enough to enable you to rest awhile now. There were Maud X.'b lessons, which alone wonld bring you In n small fortune, you said.' "'A small fortune? Yes, bnt dmall fortnnes will not lait forovor,' said Cara, slowly. Ilow do I know tbnt I flhall have any puplla next year ? How do I know V " There was a ahort, sharp knook at tho studio door and a letter fell throueh the slit. upon the floor. Cara sprane to pick it up, glanced at the address, which l saw was in a maaculine hand, and k faint flush tinped her palo cheeks. I turned away to look at a pictnrp. whil she toro open the cnvelope. When I turned back tho flush hnd faded, and left her paler than before, her lips were qniv ering a little, and her eyes had a dim, hopelpss look, which moved me aorely. " ' Uara. you are not well, I cried. ' Dear child, vou must corae with me. You shall have a room with a north light and be alono when vou like. and no one shall nak you a queation. We will make excursions into tho countrv, and you shall afeetoh whilo I read,and ' " Iiut Cara Btnpped me with a motion of heMiand. ' No, no,' she said, ' I can not come. Do not make it harder for me to refuse by urging me. I must stay here there is no other place for me.' " ller tone was so decided that I lelt it wonld be useleas to urgo her further. and sadlv and reluetantly I left her. That night came the news of tho severe illness of your mother, my only siater, accom panied wifh an entreaty that I wonld go to her. Of courae I went by the hrst train hext morninrr, loavine onlv a noto for Cara, to explain my pudden departure, " It was the hrst of AneuRt when I had left tbe oity, but September hadcomo and well-nigh gono before your mother's health was Bufficiently re-established to enable mo to leave her. " 'I saw your friend Cara Ilastines tO' dav.' said one of the familv. as wo eatb' ered around the table for the hrat meal after my return. ' I am afraid the poor cirl is in a bad way. She was always fraeile, but now she is ahadowy. bhe has a settled coueh and a hectic color. bue looked very prettv, but I should ba sorry to aee any dear friend of raine looking prettv in iust the same way 1' " 1 need not say tnat tne next morning found me on my way to Cara's studio. It was all true. I knew it as soon as I looked in her face. She threw herself into my arms with a little cry of delight, which chaneed into a spasm ot coughing, and I felt the slight form paat and quiver in mv arms. "'Cara! dear child, what have you been doing to yourself,' I cried in dismay. " Cara smiled her own bright, cheerlul smile. " ' I have had a very bard summer,' ahe said, ' but I 8ball soon be strong agam Now that it is all over I can tell yon about it, bnt at one time I really thoueht tnat X should never live to do so.' " It was not a romantio story, for there was no lovn in it, and no tragedy, save as I plainly foresaw, looking in my poor Cara's face. " 1 1 suppose I was rather extravaeant in the spring.' said Cara, ' for I needed a a good manv thinp. and I knew that the monev for Maud X.'b lessons would keep mo all summer. Maud and her mother left town rather suddenly in June, and I did not know whero they had gone. I sent my bill to the house, however, not doubtine that it would be paid at once I waited a month, and in tho meantime my funds ran very low, and I found that the 8tnctest economy was necessary, Do what I would, however, the monoy melted away like water, and at lnst, in despair, I resolved to write to Dr. X. It was a hard thing to do, bnt I did it, merely tollint? him that I had sent in my bill to ftlrs. A. at such a date, and bavine heard nothing from her, feared that it had not been forwarded. It seemed to me that life and death hune npon the an swer, yet I did not really doubt that he would sond tne money at once. iiia an swer came one day while you were with me.' " ' I remember,' I said, bnefly. " There was no money inclosed, as I had expected,' continued Cara. ' He merelv informed me that the bills for Maud'a lessonB and schooling were always settled by Mrs. X. ; tbat the bill had been dulv forwarded to her, and that, no doubt, she would settle it promptly upon her re turn in September. And 1 had just sixty cents in tbe world I " Mv poor Cara I I cried, What did vou do ' " ' uo t What was inere 10 ao t said Cara. ' Fortunately, my rent was paid for three montbs in advance, so that I was sure of a shelter, at leaat. For the rest, I lived for a month npon that sixty cents Of courae I could not afford to buy f nel, bo bread and water constitnted my entire diet. Two rolla a day aro not very satia factory, but it was all I could afford. Two cents a day will not set a luxurious table. Ilnnerv t 1 thintt i was not bo much hungry as weak. Tho worat of all was that I could not paint. I had not the streneth to Btand before the easel, and my hand buook so that 1 could not man- age the brashes, and, sometimes, it really seemed that my mind wandered. Dear, you must not feel so badly about it. It ia all over now.' "For I was crying silently at the thought of all that Bhe had suffered through that horrible summer, and still moro at tho thought that lt was not all over, that, alas I it had just beeun. " Oh, Cara I why would you not come to me when I begged you? ' I sobbed at last. " Dear, I could not,' said Cara, eently. I Bhould have felt liko a beggar. I could not tell you of my Btraits, and I could not eo and live upon you, knowine that I was actually a pauper. I should have felt ashamed even before your aervants, If vou "will aak me for avisit now that I havo money enough to mako me inde- pendent, I will coma : but at tbat time I could not I tried, but, indeed, I could not.' "Ask her? of course I asked her, knowing well that it was the last thing I Bhould ever do for her. That month'a atarvation had done ita work, and the weakenedsystemfellan easy vlctira tothe bereditary foe, whioh else might have been baflled. When Cara left our house, at last, it was with handa meekly folded upon her breast, with the aightless eyes veiled bv their lone, dark lashes, and the amilo of tho triumphant redeemed upon her pallld lips." Aunt Graco's lips were quivering and her eyes dim with toars as she flnishod her story. Roso had dropnod her worlc, and sat with her eyes flxod upon her aunt's face. " How dld Dr. X. feel when ho heard of lt ?" sho asked, at last. " lie never know It," aald Aunt Uraco. " When I tako up tho rolieious or secular papers and read tho bnrning and eloquent words in which ho pleaded the causo of somo benevolent object, I wonder what ho would eay if ho knew tho true story of tho lifo nnd death of his daughter'a drawing toacher, little Cara Hastings." " Iiut ho oueht to know it," said lloso, indlgnantly. " It was hardly his fault, after all," said Aunt Grace, eently. "Ho could never imagino of what oonscquenco asum of money, which seemed trifling to him, might be to a poor girl. But that is tho reasou whv I always pay my bills promptly, Rose." Uose Btood up, pnt awav her work and her crewels and left the room. A few minutes afterward she returned, cloakod and hatted for the atreet. " Thank you for your story, Aunt Grace," sho said, as she buttoned her glove, " I am goine down now to pay that bill, and as for Mrs. Lorimer'a reception well, I can wear my old bonnet or stay at nome." new York Ubserver. A Ilrnvo Englnccr. The Watchman of Julv 11. eavo a brief nccount of the disabling of tho steamship Anrania by the breakine of a crank-shaft, off Sandv Hook, Sunday afternoon, July 1. Iho New York Ht.rald eraphioally de- acribes the disaater and tbeheroism of tho engineer. Tho enormous power de- manded for tho propulsion of a creat ves sel like the Aurania received a terrifio il lustration by this incident. " It was while the pasaengerB were watching tha low lineof the Long Island coast, just ap- peanng m tho dim distance, " says the llerald, " that the crank-shaft attached to tho middle piston, an enormous bar of solid Bteel, ten inches in diameter, sud denly snappfid in twain. The suddenly liberated piston rod ahot up through the top of the confining cylinder, tearing the thick Bteel plates all to pieces, and with one tremendous burst and a report like that of heavy pieces of ordnance, a vast volumo of Bteam, carryine with it frag ments of iron, burst through tho sky-light and escaped heavenward. JLbe bavoc wrought in the engine room was terrible. Not a cylinder escaped laceration. Iron braces were bont and torn, heavy beams were perforated, glass an inch thick' from the sKy-lieht-was blown into tho air and rained down upon tho deck in adangerous shower. A passenger was sittine near the stern and was aliehtlvcutbviallinggiass, A lady paasanger Mrs. K. v . bturdevant waa stanrime near the sky-lieht. bhe was knocked down by the force of tho ex plosion and her wrist was badly sprained. For a moment or two there was almost a panio on board, those on deck being frightened by the noise of the explosion, the rush of escapint; steam and tbe sound of some terrible pounding, which was go ine on m the lowest deptbs ot the engine room. They retreated in some disorder toward the bows. Other passeneers, who were below, rushed on deck to see what the matter was. But it was not on deck nor yet ih the upper part of the engine room that the real point of daneer lay. Down three ereasy pairs of ladders, in the deptbs of the ship's bull, far below the cylinders, in the dark hole where stokers grow faint from excessive heat and where the grimy engineer on duty boids his post ot responsibility, there waa enacted Bcene which rarely has an equal. The lower portion of tho broken crank-shaft, a mass of steel weigbing many tons, was, ot courae, fastened to the main Bhaft of the ship, and as this continued to revolve from the workine of the other pistons, an immense arm of steel went flying about like a hnge ilail. Tbe enect was awiui Iron and steel were knocked to spnnters, A supportine column of wrought iron a foot in thickness was broken in two, and one picce weiehing a ton was bitten out bo to speak. Wherever the flail struck deatruction followed. The air, already choked with pcaldine steam, was filled wlth sparks of fira oaused by the blows of ateel on steel and iron. xne piace was ln- fernal. Nothine but prompt action could save the sheathing of the vessel from be ing pounded through. The engine must be stopped. And yet the little steel brake which controlled the wnoie tremenoous mechanism was aituated only about two feet from tho arm of the thrasber and rigbt in the midat of the scalding steam and tho blistenng sparks. Andrew um bert. the second eneineer, promoted from the Bothnia, was on duty in the engine room. He is a tall, brawny bcotchman ot Bome three or fo'ur and thirty. When the crank-shaft broke and the engine room was turned into pandemonium, Mr. Lam- bert was standing near one ot tho stoke rooms, some twenty or tniriy ieeo irom the brake. ne saw and felt the dense mass of steam and noted the lightning of the flying sparks. He knew the engine must be stopped. To see tho controlling brake was an lmpossionity, out ne Know that instinct would take him to it, and, dropping down on his hands and knees, ho crawled up to it and turned off the Bteam. The shaf t had made about twenty revolutions bofore he was able to get the engine under control. He was badly scalded about the face and hands, but oth erwiae uninjured. But he had risked his life to savo the ehip." oin or law, for I fanov that no womon oan becoino usoful in either of tboso pro fossions without becoming to a cortain degreo uusoxed ; but I should be the last person in tha world to rofuso to recognize tho fact that a women can bo of great as sistanco in nearly all olassea of buBiness, and can succesafully hold tho majorlty of rosponslble commerioial positions now held by mon. In tho carpot trado we havo several ladies who own their own stores, others who buy for their husbands' stores, and othera still who always accom pany their husbands on their buslness trips to tho city." " But do you not thlnk that womon as a rulo aro likely to be moro easily influ enced than men? " " No, sir, not in buainess, and perhaps not out of it. A buslness woman is a far moro difQcult person to deal with than a business man. Onco let her undoratand, or even fancy she understands tho busl ness and you may bo perfectly certain that sho will never bo imposed upon. Ono of our lady oustomers is also a designer, and she recently brought us one of the prettiest carpot dosigns that I have ever seen, and asked us to mako it up for her. AVe were only too glad to do it, and tho deslgn is now ono of tho best selling ' bodies ' we havo in stock. I know one lady whoso husband owns a laree curtain, upholstery and carpet business, in fact a general house-furnishing store, and that lady knows more about the actual details of the business than her huabaud, aud yet he's no fool ; on the contrary, ho may be classed as a eoou business man. But" Just at this moment a eentoellv dressed lady entered the Btore. Sho was about thirty years of age, good looking, and possesaed that quiet, collected look that denotes the real lady. In a thoroughly business-like manner she examined the stock, selected her eoods and selected them with the beat of iudement, and, after exchaneine a few words with the head of the firm, walked out of the place aa lt ahe was in the babit of buying thousand rolls a day. "That's one of our lady buyers," ra- marsed the manutacturer, " and you can form an idea'of the eeneral manner of the ladies who have enerey enough to take a part in conducting their husbands' ousiness. JUr. is a proaperoua re- tailer, a eood risk in every sense of the word, but while be attends to the eeneral working of tho concern, his wife does all tbe buying and does it well, too, 1 can assure you." cw dvctitiucmcnlu, POWDER Absolutely Pure.

The sienificant event of the day in New York was the return of tho colora of the one hundred and fif ty-fifth reeiment by tbe cadets of the Viretnia military insu tute, where tho flag was deposited at the oloso of the war. These colors were lost in the fieht of Cold Harbor, where the brave Colonel MacMahon of the one hun dred and fifty-fiftb, a young man only twenty-aix yeara of age, had planted them on an earthwork, in advance of all hia mon, and maintained them in the face of the enemy's iire until he was riddled witb bullets. Aa be said himselt, witb his dyine breath, he was ahot all to pieces An olficer, also wounded near by, crawled over and offered the dying colonel some whiskey. ile was then lyme witb his hands clasped over his breast, and his lips movine as it in prayer. He only re- sponded to the officor, " No, no, I thank you. Let me die in peace." Three of the JHacAlahon brothers distmguished them selves in the war. The firat to fall was the colonel of the one hundred and fif ty fifth, and his brother, the hero of Cold Harbor, took hla place. The surviving brother, General MacMahon, waa offered the position of colonel; but he de clined and left tho command to the lieutenant-colonel, who, when captured, begged the confederates to savo young MacMahon. But it was then too late. The body of the colonel lay for three days on the spot where he fell, so terrible was the fire of tho combatants at that point. He was finally buriod at midnight. The chaplain who performed the service and hundreds of the men were in tears. By an order of Meade, no regiment which had lost ita colora was permitted to carry colors again until it had won the right by gallant conduct. In the case of the One Hundred and Fifty-fiftb, General Han cock most earnestly proteated, aaying, " I would be content to loso all the colors of my command in tho same way." An ap- peal was taken to General Grant in the war department, and the colors were re- stored. Tbia is tbe patbetic, yet proud ato- ry of the captured flag. It waa delivered on the Fourth in the eovernor'a room at the city hall. Col. Bafi of tho eleventh Vir- einia cavalry, who captured tbe Uae, hand ed it to Mayor Edson with the remark tbat vireinia acted now tn tbe sincere beiiei that her sons were brothera of tho oiti zens of New York. He referred to the speech of Fresident Arthur, who, when receiving the cadets earlier in the day at the tiutx Avenue hotel, bad said, "1 wiah here to express my hope and confi dence that bencefortb, wheuever the flag of a New York regiment shall be assailed, if the gallant soldiers of Virginia are by, they will be prompt and eaeer to defend it." Col. Ball fuily endoraod the senti ment. Christian Ileguter. Women Buyers. " Do vou ever have any lady buyers visit you ?" recently asked a representa tive of the Carpet Tradc and Itevicw, of a prominent carpet manutacturer. " Xes, sir, and wnat s more ineae jaay buyers are among the Bharpeat purohasers we have to deal with. They pay the strictest attention to every detail of the businetB, select their goods wlth greater care, and have much better taste than tha averago male buyer. Now it is an un doubted faot that American wives are not consulted enough upon many subjeota re- lating to their busbands1 business, wnere thoir advice would be of benefit to all con cerned. In France, it is alinoat the rule to aee the wife of a manufactureror store keeper, not only taking au interest in the business, and having a desk in tbe ofQce, bnt ia many cases actually managing the businoss. Can a man have a more trust worthy cashier or head book-keeper than his own wife ? No, air. If our business men would onlv admit their wives and other femalo relativea into thoir ofilces, we should hear much less frequently of defaultlng cashiers and defaultlng book keepers. A man can have no better ad viser than his own wife, and very few know what excellent 'business men' women make, if they are carof ully trained. Some of the largeat buaineases in France, emploving many hundreds of persons, are entirely managed by women. I am no woman'a righta advocate, indeed, I am distinctly opposed to a woman'a going out of her own sphere and dabbling in raedi. A Canadian writes home to the To ronto Mail tbat he saw the Prince and Princess of Wales at Hurlingham the other day. " The Prince," he says, "struck me as boine an exceedineiy bandsomo man, slightly bald, but with a splendid sparkling eye, good healthy color, and a bandsome and well-trimmed giossy beard ; ho looks tha verv pioture of manly healtb He ia so like hia portraits that even one who had never seen him before could have no difllcultv in pickine him out in crowd. He looked every inch a prince, and a jolly eood fellow. The Princess is said to be the handaomest lady in Fng land. Of course as to thia I cannot judge. but I do know that she is not only good lookine, but intellectual Iookine as well. and has about her every action that charming sweetnoas of manner which has made her name a byword in tuis country for all tbat is eood and womanly. The Frince's eldest son and the three daueh tera are all brieht-eyed aud healthy look- ine, and I thoueht to myself that unlesa some dreadful calamity befell the royal farnily thero would not for a long time exisi any necessity, as was aone on former occasion, to sond out of the coun try for heirs to the Hritish tbrone."
