They had sent a lg covered wagon to mrvt Mina Britbon At the station, and the driver o lurRo man in a water proot m a t a Ja. a It 11 coat ana wiao nai arovo) is Biouuiy along the road without making a re mark. Beside Miss Britton, in all her wasp waisted, white handed beauty, SRt little Cousin Dsnlse, a dark girl with no beauty whatever, but a good honest ex pression. Miss Britton was not in her best mood. Sho was in the habit of going to Sara toga, to Newport, to the Catskill Moun tain house, to places where well dressed rrnwila rrmpTOtrato. with trnnks of now clothes. This year her father, having met with, leases, had resolved to re trench. Ho had let tho city howso fur nished for a certain space of time. He hnA rslrpn ltis wifo to visit a certain Cousin Bdgf?!, and he hud isont his daughter to this pretty hotel, with nor rnnsin Dimiso for comnanv. The doctor had had a whisper from Miss .Britton that had led him to declare that she must have country air, and this was tho reeult. "Much letter." eaid Mr. Britton. rim kind of thinor vou'd havo if 1 should fail. And you and your mothor have been going it for a considerable timo at a rate I can't permit any longer." Mrs. Britton had only mockly sighed nml lnnlmd heavonward. Miss Britton had almost raved. But Mr. Britton had his way. "Comfort yourself with the thought that it might havo been worso," whis pered Mro. Britton in her daughter's enr, as they parted. "If Cousin BriggB had not lmmi verv narticnlar about inviting only two of us, having but one spare bedroom, she distinctly 6iuu, you lnigm have to go thero." Aa fnv nprtlKft. nliB said nothinff. butin her heart she looked forward to dwelling for a spaco m wnat sue cniiea "ino re.n nnrr'" with iov. At tho fashionable hotels sho noted the part of amateur lady s maid to her nanasome cousin auu to her stylish aunt. Her own dress was very plain and no one took any notice of her. A poor relation without beauty is much neglected in those matrimonial tnarkots of America. Naturally, Bonis had not been in the habit of enjoying herself. Now as they drovo along through the soft falling rain aho peeped between tho folds of tho curtain and uttered gay little ejaculations. "Such lovely trees! Such a nice old farmhouse! A little river with such a pretty bridge!" But Cecilia Britton never troubled herself to reply. Her wrongs were heavy upon her. "I believe if I had gone to Newport tliis summer Mr. Collingsby would have offered himself," the said ut bat. "Papa has made a great mistako in sending me to livo in thu horrible wilderness. What is the nso of being handsome and fasci nating if one must bo buried alive?" "Oh, it is lovely here!" Denise cried, with those little gesticulations sho had learned in childhood from tho French mother whose name she bore. "It is lovely!" "I don't think you even heard me speak of Charles Collingsby," said Ce cilia, gravely. "I told you I felt sure that if wo had met at Newport he would have offered." "Is it such a plcasuro to refuse men?" said Denise, with a little shrug. "Yes," replied Cecilia, scornfully. "Of course you know nothing about it, but it i3 a very great triumph. However, I should not havo refused Charles Collings by, being in full possession of my senses." "Oh! but you would never havo mar ried him?" gasped Danise. "A man of that character, who drinks so much, who is talked of with married ladies, who ia a brute in his manners. Yes, a brute, Ce cilia. Do you remember how he stepped on other people's toes and elbowed them, to get near that opera singer with tho disgracefully low dress? How ho said once aloud in the cars, 'When I give my seat to any one it's a pretty girl, not an old married woman?1 Oh, ho is horrible, I think. I should not mind your saying no' to him, but you'd never" "Oh, Td never," mocked Cecilia. "You are angry because he said you were) as ugly as a frog one day." I confess it," said Denise. "The idea of a man letting a girl hear him say that! And he wanted me to hear." "You sea you played third party too much," said Cecilia, laughing. "You made me," said Denise. "I al ways wanted to go away when he came near us, but you said" 'Yea," said Cecilia. "At that time 1 had my eye on that handsome English man, and I was anxious to be awfully proper. But the Englishman did not want an American wife, and Charles Collingsby ha three million of mowy, and tbey are at the top of the ladder his family and I could do as I pleased, i He's not Btraitlacod. and he told Mra I Fox that I wa tunning.' Oh, I should have i layed my card well thi sumrner! Papa inu.it be in difficulties to be eo .. k v-j 1-rn Litelv. and Td have been Mrs. Collinp-by next winter, and. bere I am among the pigs and the boon, j not a crs.tcre to speak tor and she' Uptx-J iito silence. bhortlr tbe bct-l wi reached. Dmiaa, arse ati jsmpc-i lightly to the tx ana as mev siooa waning tor inoir natchela aud a parcel Denise carried they saw a figure rise from the back of the wagon, shake Itself free ol fragments of straw, make an agile spring forward aad vanish in the interior of the hotL It wa a ftno figure that of a young man. His hat was pulled over his eyes and they did not see his face. "Some one there and we were talking so freely," said Denise In a whisper. "Of what account is a country Doorr eald Cecilia. "Besides, he must have been asleep." Jt was some consolation to Cecilia to find that there were a number of men at tho little hotel, and that some of them were young. Whon the fishing and shooting, which bronght them to the place, did not take them out of reach soe flirted with them to ner nean s uoiignu "Nobodies," as she often said to Denise, "Nobodies, of courso;" but all the same thev were bettor than nothing. Whoa one young follow went home suddonly. paloand forlorn, Denise guessed what had happened. "He has offered and yon have refused him," she said. Cecilia nodded merrily. "It was such fun," she said. "Ho went down on his littlo knees. Ho is only one and-twenty, and is in a dry goods shop. Of course I refused him. "But you lod him on," said Donise, at which Cecilia laughod more than ever. It was after this youth's departure that ono of the young sportsinon who hud at first paid very little attention to the la dies began to devote himself to them. He was a very handsomo young fellow, with a rendy smile and a bright twinkle in his eve. intelligent and evidently well educatod. Even Cecilia could not deny that this nobody was pleasant. . Once grown better acquainted, he proved a great acquisition. Ho was never weary of showing thorn tho beauties of tho nloce. which were many. He rowed them on tho river, he drove them out, and to tho great astonishment of little Denise he never neglected her. She was so used to being overlooked that sho had expected it. No wonder she thought him tho most delightful person possible, a:id that sho pleaded his cause with Cecilia. "I know you moan to refuse him," she said. "But, oh, Cecilia! you could be r-o happy with him. Think it over, doar "Think over marrying a young man like that!" said Cecilia. "Ho is very nice, but no doubt ho would expect his wife to live iu a cottage in the suburbs and bo content with one best black snlc I aim higher, Denise." "I do uot think bo if Charles CollingS' by is your object," said little Denise; but nain Cecilia only laugnou. Secretly she liked Richard extremely but she had questioned him a littlo, and his answers hod convinced her that ho was poor. It was enough. All sho could look forward to wa3 to add her refvmal of him to her other triumphs. But suddeuly a change came. She was sitting upon tho porch ono evening when two of the men at the honso paused in tho garden path speaking of Richard Rodney. "Ho is a nice follow," said ono. "And a very happy fellow, too," said tho other. "One of the richeat young men in Now York. Rich Rodney they called his father, and ho inhentod every thing" Rich! An eligible match! Could it really he? Was it possible? Oh, how delightful! for surely ho was at her feet, and now she would not refuse him when he offered himself; she would say yes. Aftor all ho was handsomer, better, and in cvory way more pleasing than Charles Collinssbv. She did not feel sure but that she was a little in love with him. Sho ran into tho house to look for Donise to tell her tha wonderful nows, but the girl was not to bo found. For once in her life Deniee had had an invitation of her own. Richard Rodnoy had asked her to row with him upon the river, and at that very moment they were slowly drifting along in the soft moonlight, and Richard hold both tho girl's tiny brown hands. "Say yes, dearest," ho was whispering. "Ilovevou better than life. 1 cannot be happy without you." "It is bo strango," said Donise. "I thought it was Cecilia with you, as with all the rost." "You mean that you thought that I loved Miss Britton?" asked Richard. "Every one else seemed to," said Den ise. "Ah," said Richard, "that is possible, but 1 loved you at first sight, and as I happened to overhear a certain conver sation between you aud Miss Britton on tho day of your arrival I am well armed against her fascinations. And then bow shamefully Bhe used little Smith." "Ah!" cried Denise. "You were the person in the back of the wagon that dayr" "Yes, I was the person," replied Rich ard. "But you have not answered inn will you be my wife?" Denise said bothing, bnt she let him kiss her, and he was quite content. "Only think, Deniae," said Cecilia, as the girl came into their littlo room later on "only think, I have heard the moat wonderful news to-night Richard Rod ney is trcmendoortly rich. That, you know, alters the aspect of things. I shall accept him when he offera." "Ah!" cried Deniae, "but he will not offer." "If I should try to make him he will," aid Cecilia. "I think not," said Denijse. "I am a plain little tiling, but now that we are engaged he will be true to me." "Eugagedr gaped Cecilia. "Not to you?" Deniae nodded and held under tbe light a little hand on which aa unwonted dia mond Trkled. "He alij ped It on to-night," she eaid. "You knew how rich be was," cried Cecilia, "and never told me!" , But Denize had tv4 known. She b Mr? Richard Rodnary now, and, being rich, people call ber piquant and chann ing.

Lot Routes Nutionnles. radlato from tho largo cities like the spokes of a wheel. They are all marked with kilometer stones, a kilometro being about Uve- eighths of a mile. The stones are about two foot and a halt nign, a root ana a linlf lirond. and a foot thick. As TOU approach the first stone you will notice on tho sido nearest you tno name 01 mo next important town, wun us uisiance Iu kilometers and meters. On its faco, following tho lines of Its semicircular top, you will read grando route number an niul no. and below tho nauiO of the great city from which it starts and the great city to which it goes, say fans anu Marseilles, and tho actual distance to each by this road. On the other side is the distance from the largo town trom which you started. Evory hundred meters you will see a neat little white stouo with tho number inscribed on it. As there are a thousand meters in a kilometer, thero aro ten of these stono9, and when you come to each you can tell exactly tho distanco you Imva made. The If lb Btono. which marks the half way distanco between the two kilometer stones, is usually a utile larger than the others. As you pass from one of tho eighty-six departments of France Into another you will boo a larger stone marking the boundary lino and record ing tli distunco to many importnut points. If the gradient becomes at nil steep, tho fact will bo announced soiue wlmt as it is at tho sido of a railway, and thero are several other marks used by tho engineers wiitcn I uo not uinierstanu. nn tlm ili'xt house In each villitiro ap proaching from cither end you will find the namo of that village clearly written in white letters on a blue ground on a motal plate, the name of tho village you Imrn inxt left, with tlie distance, an ar row pointing In its direction, tho name of the ono you aro coming to and the names of the nearest huge cities both ways. At nil cross roaU3 you win unu Inn mime Information. Tho kilometer stones themselves nro painted white, and tho numbers nnd niiiuos are cut into the Btono to protect tliem from tho rain, and unlntWI blimk. The roadway is wide enough for two or three teams to pass, ucyonu is a sweep of beautifully kept grass, and bo yorul again two grout deep gtittora, out side of which is a bank of earth higher than tho fields which It bounds, keeping all the wutrr, if thero should bo uny, back in tho fields and off tho roads.

These stone breakers nro at work spring, summer and autumn.

In the House the tariff debate last week was no bolter than squab ble, the ameodmonta being rcgnlarly voted down as thoy were offered. Ia the Senate Mr. Teller denounced tho Windom silver bill In vigorons terms , and promised that with tho free coin age wheat would go up to $1.10. IIo didn't say that it would go to that price in Liverpool, where the world a price is made, but virtually confess., ed that inflation was the object. This, bill will be Toted on Wednesday ana will pass the House all right. But; wait until it gets to the Sonata. Senator Allison is waiting for it The west will show its teeth. He eavs that ho is profoundly convinced tbat tho conditions have changed, and will handle the Mckinley bill so that the author won't know it, when be sees it. At an evenlnsr session of the House last Wednesday 130 private pension bills were passod. As these claims are invariably first rejected for want of satisfactory proof, after careful examination by tho Tension Bureau it would seem tbat the House had developed a rcmarkablo capacity for business, to disnose of so treat aa amount of it in so short a time. At n joint meeting of the Senate and House committees on immigra tion, II. J. Dailey made an argument in favor of the bill to restrict immi gration reported to tho committee. He is seoretnry of tbo Army Defense Assooiatiou which has a membership of 100,000 who approve the bill. Representative ONeil, of Mass., introduced a bill in tbe House, amendatory of the Contract labor law increasing tho penalty for tbo violation of tho law to $500 fino and six months imprisonment, in addi tion to the $1000 forfeit, now inn posod. The Government bas decided to riend back at its own expense 21 Chinamen which were smuggled through Mexico. It was feared tbat if they wero sent back to Mexico they would bo allowed to find thoir way back here again. Longstreot's Confidence in Ills Men. For the Atlanta Constitution. Perhaps the best division in Lee's army, which bad been known as A. P. Hill's Light Division, was knock ed into "pi" by Graut's first on sluught. The writer for the first time realized there was truth ia tbe report of one of Napoleon's marshals when he said of the assault pp tbe pyramids; "He board the balls-of the enemy breaking the bones of Lis men like hailstones agairtBt window panep." It is unnecessary here to account for this misfortune; suffice it to say this division was beaten and driveu back on tbo plank road when the writer met Gen. Loe, who scorned quite as much disturbed as bo was six days later when the gallant Gor don came to his relief. In this em. ergency Gen. Lonizstreet rode np ' at the head of his corps, just from Tennessee. After the general milu tary salutes, Gen. Lee eaid in meas ured tones: "Oten. Longstrcet, tbe firing is too heavy bere to form your men. Tnka them beyond the crest of that bill (pointing to the rear) and form them at once for tbe attack." I shall never forget Gen. Long street's reply. It was this: "Gen. Loe, I can form my men ia h ." To which the old chieftain replied; "Proceed and attack the enemy.'' Then followed tbe celebrated movement which has ever since mada Longstreet famous as a tactician. Supreme Conrt Incorrect. XT 1- T . UT.- 00 Tn.m xievstuts, aohs, uximj vau.
