I cried, "A lady in u splendid carriage. Perhaps she fell in love with him somewhere (I was only nineteen). Think bow romantic." "Some stuck up tiling, I suppose," Olive said, with a contemptuous shrug of her shoulders. "Really!" I exclaimed. "You laid I .et ter not 1.0 so busty in your judgments— certainly not until you know a little more than you do now." Olive »argent (nul been taken into the family when quite small .imply on ac count of her eyes, which indicated, mother thought, remarkable genius. But the genius did not develop, for site was a perfect ignoramus, with nothing unusual about lier, except her brown eyes and lier skill in using them. Mias Seymour proved a valuable pa tient. She invited Tom to meet (xsq.le of standing and influence, and his genial manners won him many desirable friends. My sister Lucy and I made the most audacious plans, Dut we could not mention the young lady's name before Olive without bringing a scowl to her brow, for the little simpleton really had tiie presumption to lie jealous, ami about this time a very eligible young man commenced paying lier marked atten tions, but she treated him with all the airs and caprices of an esjierlenced flirt. "You ought to lie ashamed of such conduct," I said to her one day. "Mr. Damson is worthy of the most superior woman and you might feel greatly flat tered liy Ids attentions. If yon do not love him why do you encourage his visits?" "Do yon want mo to marry him?" she asked. "You certainly will not have many such chances," I replied. "Docs Tom want me to marry him?" "Of course he does. He has a very high opinion of Mr. Lamson, and knows you could not moke a better match—if you intend to marry at all." "Then I shall accept him. 1 always knew I should hate the mon t married." And she flounced out of the scowling fearfully. "How queer she is," Lucy said. "1 never did like such odd girls in real life. They do well enough in stories." "1 shall be glad when she marries," I rejoined. And soon afterward she announced her engagement to Mr. Lamson. "There is some one that cores for mo "Tell Tom 1 have room. anyway," she said, accepted tho man he is so crazy to have me marry." I did not deliver the ungracious mes sage, but when I told my brother of tho engagement 1 saw him catch Ids breath, as if very much moved. ■'Little Olive engaged!" he said '1 never dreamed of such a tiling." "Little Olive is twenty years old," 1 replied, "and I supposed you would be pleased Mr Lamsou is such a tine young uiun." "Ob, yes; he is to lie congratulated." "She in the one to be congratulated," I answered quickly "Such a baby as she is, ami oh, Tom, she is so selfish!" "You are very hard, Lillian, wliero Olivo is concerned. Remember that »he has had n*:hicg to try her prove quite a heroine yet." "But, my dear brother, just compare her with Miss Seymour." "They are entirely different in their natures and dis|HM<itioiis." "1 should think so." "Then Miss Seymour is Sho may sveral yours older, to begin with, and having been left an orphan at an early ago she has acquired a groat deal of self reliance and character."

For the first time iu my life I was really angry with him, but I only an swered by a look, and if my eyes were not as seraphic, they were quite as ex pressive as Olive's.

"He'll tease me to marry him, and i never want to see the man again." "Very well," I said. "1 will see him. but it is on his account, not yours." And I descended to the parlor with my heart aching for the lover whose fondest hopes had ixaui so cruelly blasted. 1 grew more and more agitated, and when I opened the parlor door my face must have betrayed me.

John Millmore is either one of the most thoroughgoing cranks of this cranky age or a genius wi.o is destined to occupy quite a prominent niche in the temple of fame sml in the future rank a* one of Brooklyn's favorite sons. Mr. Millmore bus Invented a flying machine—not, however, i sort of machine made familiar to people by pre ceding inventors, who fondly imagined they themselves, with their corporal bodies, eon id, by utilizing certain forces and ex panding a pair of artificial wings, cleave the air will, them and soar into the realms of space, but a machine which shall have electricity for a motive power and lie used merely for telephonic purposes, and it may be in the scmioccult manner referred to hereafter. Tiie machine proper is shaped like a cigar. The materials are nothing more nor less than human hair, and thong). Mr. Millmore'« first machine will he when in flated (or practical purposes 40 feet in height, and when in motion alxint SO feet wide at the base, it can be compressed in the hand to the size of an ordinary rubber ball, and like that article so dear to small boys may lie carried almut in the pocket. At least that is what the inventor says. Near tiie top and near the Imttoni of the cigar are suspended oblong globes which are to be used as illuminators, so that every one who likes may see the machine in its rapid flight and watch it shoot through space and rise and fall at tiie will of the operator. Without a knowledge of electricity in Ix.th the writer and the read er it is diflicult to describe the machines or its workings and uses, but what Mr. Millmore says about it is something like this: "It is a talking ns much as a flying ma chine, and ft will, if I am successful, curry messages by the column to «II parts of the world, it is constructed of human hair, because t hat is the most perfect conductor of electricity the mind of man can con ceive. It is light and it is so strong that when driven by electricity the fiercest storm cannot turn it from its course. Elec tricity will carry the language employed in messages through the hair tulx-s. But before proceeding further I may explain that this machine is propelled from a dark room, and received in a dark room at its place of destination. * I sit here in front of a keyboard as the propeller, and 1 guide it to the right or to the left, depress or ele vate it at pleasure without the slightest diiliculty, for the keyixxird has switches (or the purpose that a child could operate. As yon will perceive in the diagram the hairs extend above the top. Their points are dipped in carbon, which prevents their burning. Tiie stranded threads sloping on either side from the base are drawing and projecting wires respectively. They regu late the movements of the machine. HUMAN HAIR ENOUGH. "Where would I procure human hnirf How many women die in a year? The hair they leave after them would suffice to lake my machine around the world a hundred times and it would surely be more usefully employed that way than moldering lament Ii the earth. Of course it The idea of sending out a machine eon structed of hair, making it fly at the rate of a mile in n few seconds, and carrying in its ribs, which are the hairs, an oration of j four hours duration to be spoken once more ' on the phonograph plan at the other end of the world may seem absurd at first hut not so after awhile. The telegraph was 1 laughed at in the beginning, so was the telephone, so was the phonograph—in fact every new invention. Hy operating in a dark room where there are mirrors you can see the machine, or its negatives, wherever it goes, and so regulate its merits with mathematical precision by aid of the key and switchboards already f erred to. " V, move re "Do you mean to say that you will send out. a machine which, running on hair lines, will do all you predict for it?" "I shall do so with Uod's help, if I li ve long enough." "But after ail. Mr. Millmore, that would not he so vast an improvement as regards usefulness to mankind." This w as put suggestively, and the in ventor, if lie is one. hesitated before reply ing: At the risk of being considered a still greater crank, I shall answer that there is something else in the machine—a mind reader." '•What?" "A mind render. Do you sec that straight line running right through from the top to tlie bottom of the diagram? That is a mind reading wire. I have dis covered, startling «» the assertion may sound, that brain may communicate with brain by means of a wire, an ail lint invisi ble hair wire, applied to a certain part of the forehead in a certain way.
