Mifr Elizabeth'8 Ventare. Alone I In thc luidstof' all the luxury thRt lieart could dc eire or money could buy, Elizabeth 1'hilon presented a pie turc in wliieh a proud resignation strug gled wilh a senee of Utter desolation. The light of thc beautiful home was gone. A few weeks before, lier fatlier and her delicute niother had been brought bome frora a trlp notwlth the atrcngih gained by the noft air of south crn California, but lo die frora the 8hock and bruises of a railway accident. A gay, hrilliant girl, she had listeued only thoughtlcs-ly to the loving worde ot her niother, begg.ng her to ihink of the Berious fiide of life, to muke herself loved of heavcn, as well as admired and Bought afler ou earth. 15ut one thing had Btood in tlie way, and Bhe east the matter carelesaly frora her. 8he had what she eonnidered an aristo cratic contempt for all below her in the Bocial plane, and feared leat by becora ing a Obrlsuan sbe must come in con tact with thera. The funeral had been a large oue, but what had Btruck her cven in her overwhelming sorrow was not the crowd of frieuds, but the great nuraber of pooi and neatly-drcsBed per 8onB, some of whom wepl so uncon etrainedly that all had noliced and she wondered. As she sat alone in the great parlor with an uncontrollable aehe at her heart, ihinkiug in a durab, dazcd way of thc fnture, her raaid quietly entered and asked: " Please, Miss Elizabeth, it's not to trouble you that I've come, for I know that your orders is positive, but I couldn't resist their beggiug. Piease, you wouldn't see, would you, thc Sun- "day-Bchool class thal that your O, miss, forgive me, I oughtn't have come " " Never n ind, Theresa, I will see them here for her Bake," she answered in a dreary, dull tone, for all through her grief tears had rcfused to come. " But, miss, they are too ragged and dirty for the drawing room," hesitat ingly answered Theresa. " Do as I tell you," was thc imperi ous answer. Aud it was a ragged group which filcd timidly in at the door, awe-struck for a moment by the beauty of the house, and of the haughty girl at the further end of the room. InBtead of advancing to her they stopped, and, evidently foreettlng that " the illegant young leddy " had hearing powers, be gan to discuss her and their future movementR. One energetic young Irish girl Bpoke for the rest. "Och! an' what have we tumblcd into, sure? An' it's no daughter of our dare departed leddy that waping cyes obsarve. It's proud that she is, not even gitting up to wilcnme her sisters! Lit's aak her who she is." Boldly advancing to the sofa, evi dently mystified at finding matters somehow different frora what they ex pected, their leader, extending a hideous bunch of faded dahlias, broke out: " Yer humble sarvauts, yer leddy ihip, an' we, Biddy (that's me) an' the reBt, we wbb a'going to Bee our leddy's daughter, and presint our complimeuts an' thia lovely bookaay to expreBS our dape sympathy." " l ara Mrs. Philon's daughter." she answered, vainly trying to suppress a smile at Ihis neatly-rounded bit of lo nuacity. " Can I do any thing for you?" " We big yer pardingl We was UBed to be very wicked, ,an' our leddy showed us the irror of our ways Och, me heart! I can't no longer talk fash ionable an' perlite. Me dare leddy'B dead an' gone, an' who'll tache ua to be cood?" Here Biddy burst into loud sobs, and threw herself on the floor, while the room resoundcd with the veheraent waihng of all these warm Irish little hearta. Touched by their sorrow, Elizabeth stooped and caressed the tangled, frowzy head of poor Biddy, who, sud denly checking her wild howlinsr, said: "Be you our sister then, too?" " What do you mean, child?" Eliza beth aaked in surpriaeand half diamay. "Our leddy aid the blissid Master was not ashamed to cill us brithrin, an' she sid she was our sister. Och, Jasus, Jasus, an' why did yer take her away? Och, rais8,rae mitherdicd thismorning, and all becauae there was nobuddy but me to take care of her, with our leddy gone." "Good-bye, miss," she broke out again suddenly, " dith comes to all. May yer place in hiven be high." With which stateraent aad wiah Biddy kisBed the hand of the startled Elizabeth, and darted outof the room followed by her silent corapanions. Once more alone, Elizabeth smiled to herself atthe odd apeclacle, but sud denly their honest grief rose up before her, and her lonely heart gave a great throb. The passionate tears came that were 10 bring rest and peace, for she seeraed to hear a voice whispering: " Yes, as Biddy said, life is not long. Wbat have you done for the One who not only lived on thia Borrowful earth for you, but was put to a 8hameful death." A great flood of love and light burst upon ber, and sbe cried, " Mamma, mamma, I wlll try and make the world a little less sorrowful." Biddy'a words haunted her" No buddy but me lo take care of her," and her resolve was eoon made. Three weeks later ahe waa iaetalled in a train ing Bchool for nurttes. The drudgery of the first year tbe work she had thought worthy only of the meanest servant, the scrubbingand running up and down stairs, doing the humhlcst dutieB, as well as watching and caring for fretful invalids, with the constant criticism and tbe rigid obedi ence required all were galhng to the proud, high-strung nature of the girl, but the thought o her future life con quered. She knew that in no other way could she reach the lives and hearts of 80 many, as by watching at the bed tide of the aick,and perhapa in no other way could she learn bo well in what ways to spend ber great wealth. The period of charity nursing was eagerly greeted by her, but to go out among ber own class in cap and apron, rather snubbed by thoBe lacking Chria tian coUriesy those that, not knowing who she was, bad in times past thought it an honor when she entered their houscs treated by supercilious servants with as little rcspect as they dared all this ehe soon learned to endurc for the sake of her Great Example, and it only strengthened her resolution to perse vere. At laBt she reached the end of her course, and, happy in thc joy of a life purpoBe, started out on lier carecr of Belf-sacriiicing love. Down in tbe sluras in a narrow alley, ahe hircd tbe only houBe available, a little tumble down plnce currounded by tall tene metits, swarraing with wretched and wicked human bcings. Her heart ached for them, but she hoped by liv ing among them to hclp them and to lift them up to a bigher nlane. Ilcr appearance iu the alley, (IreaBed in a neat ginghara, with cap and apron, created a Bensation. Alone and uu proteetcd in this viciouB comraunity, it was her fearless air and kindly araile to ali that kept hcr from harm. In re spouae lo curious questioners, Bhe an nounced simply Ihat her nanie was Elizabeth and that ahe was making a little home for herself. Her first ohject lesson waB to buy a pail and scrubbing brush and with her own hands to flcrub walla, ceilings and floors from top to botlom. A wonder ing crowd of idle, gaping women and youngsters soon surrounded her, but they merely atared, until one day they saw her with a step-ladder and'apail of paint procecding to paint the out side of thc front of her house, whcrc the roof sloped so as to form only one story. When they hooted, and some raen and boys threw mud, making it, if posaible, more gnniy tban before. Elizabetb Btepped down and said quietly: "Do I interfere with any of your rights, that you should hinder mv work?" A rough youth answered promptly, " Elizabeth, my gal, that'a a rura kirid of work for a woman. You'd better quit and we'll save you the trouble 1 Ho, ho, hol Aud. there was a loud KUffaw at his jokc. ' With ready wit she thankcd them heartily for their kindneas. Taken aback at this coolness, they resolved to be even, and demanded that she should not see the painting till finished. Her seusitive, delicale nature shrank when she saw the rcsultof their work a vivid yellow, Btreaked with a glaring red. and acrosa the whole in huge black lettcrs, her owu name, Elizaiieth! A swift piayer ftew upward for wiadora, then with beating lieart and heightcned color Bhe said aa brightly as she could: " What pretty lettering," for there was a rude attenipt at artiatic effect, " Who did il?" Again baffled in their attenipt to arouae hcr angi r and have a little fun, they could not help being soflened and what heart has not ita tender apot? and tbe Ranie rough fellow who had before apoken aaid awkwardlv enough: " I'm .Tim Toots and I letlered the word. 1'ni blazin' sorry. Want the ole thing rubbed out? Feeling that her influence would be greater if she allowcd it to remain, Bhe answered, with a bright smile: " Oh, no; wc will leave it there, and then, you know, you wilt have no ex cuae for forgetting me and my name." Frora this moment they became the championa of " Ihat plucky gal, Kleeza beth," as they callcd her, and when she announced that she was a nurae, and would take care of sick people for two cent8 a day and five ceuts a night, they even, on several occasions. clubbed togetber, paylng the five centB that she might watc'h with some wrelch too poor aven to pay that paltry sum. They became her protectors, too, as she went about on ber errands of niercy, or, as they termed it, " her thrivin' busincss," especially at night when she wended her way through particularly dangeroua quarters. The only luxury which she retained that could in any way remind her of her former life, was hcr favorite china and the linest of damaak, and on thia, everv evening at six o'clock, she had tea parties for five of her rough neighbora. At length she began to notice a rude at tenipt at neatneas in both raen and women, and she felt that thc time had come for raorc direct work for hcr Maa ter, and, galhcring the ragged, ueglccted ohildren about ber on Sundays, sbe taught them of Jesus' love; and" in her constant nursiug of the sick and feeble, she began to tell them of the sacrificc for them of their Elder Brother. Ten ycara had passed by; the alley and ita iuhabitanta, thougli still poor, had about them a thrifty look. A pretty stone chapel stood on the spot where a stranger would have been told that a yellow house had once been, on which was painted the name " Eliza beth." Nexl to il was a reading room and library. On entering the library, a rough but honcst-looking man would have greeted that stranger wilh a court eous " What can I do for you?" In answer to questions in regard to thc beautiful buildings, Jira Toots for such indeed it was would have an swered with tears in his evcs: " Ten years ago our Sister Elizabeth came among us. We thought she was poor like ourselves, and at first we treated her shamefully and made fun of her, but she won our hearts by her pluckiness and her care of the sick, and when the cbolera broke out she never rested night or day, but watched and nursed us all, till she, too, was taken down. And then and then after she was gone we learned that she had left her home and wealth, all against tbe prayers and entrealies of her friends, just to be our sister and lift us up to a better life. Part of her money was put into these buildings, but the thing that has helped us most ia tbat ahe 1 waB not ashamed to call us brethren.'" Crane Walton, in JVeio Yorife Observer. Ilbbtrtatmnts.

Looking out over (he many homes of this country, we see thousands of women wearing away their lives in household drudgery that might be materially lessened by the use of a few cakes of SAPOLIO. If an hour is saved each time a cake is used, if one less wrinkle gathers upon the face because the toil is lightened, she must be a foolish woman who would hesitate to make the experiment, and he a churlish husband who would grudge the few cents which it costs. If your grocer sends you anything in place cf SAPOLIO, send it back and insist upon havi.ig just what you ordered. SAPOLIO always gives satisfaction. On fljors, tables, and painted work it acts like a charm. For scouring pots, pans, and metals it has no equal. Everything shines after it, and even the children del'ghi in using it in their attempts to help around the house. fST Orocora ofton uubstitutc ch .per goods for SAPOCTO to mako a better proflt.

To rnakc up for u izri-en CbriBtmaB, a gray New Year'B, and the eun Blream ing out warm on Candlenias day, there were six weeks of good solid sledding in March. 8o the furmers said up on the Wcstlake branch. The last two weeks ran over into April, to be sure, and April first was colder than it had been any day during the whole winter. There was capital sleighing, and the ice bridge on the rivcr wasstrong and safe. There was lo be an "April-fool party " up at the little hotel ten miles beyond Westlake. IVrhaps it would be called a progrcssive crazy parly in these dayi. The iiivitatiotis issued from the local newspnper and job printing-ofnce said that the parlicipants were to dress like fools, act like fonls, talk like fools, and eat like fools. Il was likely to be a great frolic at all events,.and all tbe niemhers of the local freighl crews were anxious to go, of course. The West lake party were going in sleighs,on the river. " It will be 8ornelhing worth telling of when we are grandfathcrs," said .lake Harns, the engineer, "Ihat we had a lleigbrlde on the old Connecticut river the lirht of April. If we couid get up to Westlake by six o'clock, we might go with them." " Bul that would be inipossible, so there is no use lalking about it," said Lute Duston, the conductor. " We never could make the run." " We could do it by niukins up every eccond of time post-ible and getting to the string bridge croMing where we meet the express, five minutes, say, uhcad, nnd, instead of halting there, rasning riL'hl BlODg down the grade." " Il would be agaitist orders, plump, and Itealillg the way and running a big risk," replied the conductor. " We should run some rik, to be sure, but not niuch. We have a light trnin, and I will pull you into West lake ll.ying, and have you safely side tracked before the express gets there if you just say the word, Lule. We don't get a chance for a frolic very oflen." "All right, try it on," said the con ductor, and the ihinlng little locomo tive, North SUir, tlew over the solid, well ballasted, single tnick road, its gleaniing brass eyliuders rctlecting the tremhling atinset light, and takinc the long Irain of empty lumber cars whiz Eing through the irosty air, down thc grade, over the white fields of un broken snow, to thc turnout. " This is better than I expected," said the engineer, " we are six minutes ahead. There can't be the least par tlole of risk now, and the switch is all right," and to the wide-eyed and open mouthed amuzeiueiil of the old swilch tender, who expected them to run up on the main track und back down upon the turnout, they went ftying by, swing iug their hats and laughiug at his wild 8hnw of consternation. Further u) Ihe road, a bright little woman, thc engineer's wife, was talk ing to a group who were irettinir ready for the cvening's frolic. " .lake can't get up in time," she said, " aud I am sorry enough, it's so seldom the poor fellow geta an outing, and he basn't had a sleigh-ridc since this splendid full of snow. I'm going to send Teddy down to his Auul Maggie'a at the farm, to spend the day aud to tell her that .lake and I are coniing down to sup per. That will give us somethiug of a sleigh-ride " " And I am to take my sled and go coasting with my cousins," said Teddv, " und we sliall go down to the long bili by the track, when my papa's truin gocs by, and he will get April-fooled, for he will see inc there when he 8up poscs I am 'way up at home. That will he fun, wou't it?" " He careful now," called Aunt Mag gie to the three bright boys as they left the little one-8torv farnihouse " and scampered away, dragging their sleds, "don't Blide under the trainsl" " As if there was the least bit of danger of our doing that!" laugbed Kob. "Then we know that the pas Benger nlwayB comes first, and we can see it when it's three miles off. Then, too, when that passcs Fncle Jake's freight, on the turnout by the bridge, we always hear the whistle, and we shall then climb the bank to be ready to wave our handkerchiefs when he ruBheB by. Mothers are bo funny; they always feel obliged to say, ' Be careful!' " It was prirae coasting, for the white, glistening coat of tbe long bill was hard and Bmooth. About half-way down the road crosBed the railway track, but no accident had ever hap- pened at that locaitty, tor here on the "branch" there were so few trains that every one knew when to look out for them, and it was very seldom that a " special " passed. "Hark! I believe I can hear a whis tle," said Teddy, as they reached the top of the hill. " It's imagiualion, or the wind. or a bird, or the 8tearu saw-mill whistle. " said Uob. " We shall have time for two or three good slides before the pas sengertrain comes." " See, the track way up to the ten uiile wood is clear," said Heuny. M Yes," said the two other boys, in coucert, never thinking it neccssary to glance OOtOfl the track. And awav thev went. one after tbe other, and on came the long, rushing freight. Engineer Jack Baw them, so did ihe cmductor and the brakeman. They all recognized the two little nephcws, who so often ran out to the bank to swing their hats and jump up and hurrah at the freight as if they owned shures in the stock. They knew, too, the bright yellow sled and the blue toboggan cap and mittens of Teddy, the engineer's little son. At sight of the boys the trainmen were nearly paralyzed. Each brake man seized the wheel of the brake-rod nearest. him and waited for the en gineer's whistle, but it did not soundl Onward sped the train and on rushed the sled with their merry little inno cent burdens all unconscious of the im pending peril. The poor hiilf-frantic engineer knew that he muHt not stop to look after the fate of the boys, for bearingdown upon him, ten miles away, just the other side of WeBtlake station, was the ex press pnssenger train, which, with its precious freight of human lives, he could not risk wrecking. On he wenL for seveu minutes more, seveu minutes that seemed to the train men to he ages, and endless to thc fdthcr who was Btealing his way for the sake of a frolic, and risking so many lives. The air seemed full of waih and shrieks, tbe crunching of bones and the splinteritig of sleds. Ilis long train came thundering around the curve. The " North Star" shrieked for the switch, the train slowed up and ran in upon the turn-out all right. The belabored little locomotive was iramediately surrounded by the em ploycs and loungers of the village station. " What do you call this an April fool?" asked the station agent. " Why, what'B Ihe matter with you all, can't you speak? Your faces are as white as ghostB." The fireraan was the first to find his voice and explaio. Thercupon all ea gerly ran down the line of the train, peering at the wheeli and trucks for traces of the three supposed little victiniB. " Here is the runner of one sled," and " here is the fragment of another," and " here is the ridiog board of Ted dy's little yellow 1 Comet ' ! " were the exclamations that rangout onthe crisp, twiligbt air. " I'm here, where's papa? Do take me out!" piped a weak voice, and, strange to say, throwti up and caught between the iron reaches and the lloor of one of the long platform curn was Teddv, a good deal scarcd, but wilhout a icratebl No traces of the two other boys were lo he found. The passenger train wafl detained, aud a baod-car with a gang of men went bowllog down Ihe Irack. About a mile from the farm-road cross iog they met Rob nnd Hennv trudging up to lind tiut what had become of their coubin Teddy. " We tumbkd off our sleds when we saw the irain and rolled Into the ditcb," they waiil. " We hurt ourselves a little, bul we aren't dead, after all." There was no sleighride on the river or " April-fool party " that night. The railroad men as well as all the neigh bors were too niuch wrous:ht up over the exciting incident, nnd too tliankfui over its almost miraculous outcome to engaiic iu any frolic. " That took all Ihe recklessness out of me," says Engineer Jake, as he tells the story, " and I have never felt in clined to run any riks or even play jokes April fool daysince. Mr$, Annit K.
