Aa her trustee lie had declined to ac
cede to her request, and had suggested
that if a season in London was a neces

introduce a young American lady Into
society in their company and let her
pay the piper. Th choice lay between
that and letting 40(1 Eaton square and
spending the summer at llonrncmouth.

ship, The commercial Instincts of her
maternal grandfather, which account
ed for her nephew's success in the oity,
were evidently coming out in her.
"Two thousand for the season and a
pereentaga on marriage into the peer
age that is what I shall suggest. You
constitute me your ag-ent; of coarse I
shall take no commission from you,
said Mr. Blackacre.
"Is she very dreadful?" said Lady
"Well, she's American," said her
nephew; "that covers a multitude of
sins; and till her father died they lived
quite quietly; high tea, you know, and
cooked it themselves. Siuce 1 met

"Hut is sho rich?"
"Enormously; old McXease died be

"Isn't there some proverb about
being born lucky aa well as rich?" said
Lady GrisselL "You might put us in
correspondence, and then wewiU have
an Interview; are you sure she is not
very bad?"
"She's an American, my dear aunt,

said his aunt, meekly, as he took up his

"I shall tell her that you combine the

oldest plate and the most magnificent
diamonds in liunkshirc. I know that

you might, perhaps, get leave of the

my dear aunt," said her nephew.
'Simple faith combined with Norman
blood is all very well as long as you

Her ladyship gave a little sob.
"Won't she won't this young woman
interfere with the dear girls' pros
pecter "Of course you 11 have to give her
the refusal if there's a belted earl on

she wants; she will hardly look at me

"Good heavens!" said Lady urissell.

Three days later her ladyship was
lining in the drawing-room when the
butler announced:
"Miss Loftiuia McNoase." .
The manner of Lady Grissell Grey
bank as sh rose to greet her visitor
was a marvelous combination of aris
tocratic hauteur with semi-maternal
condescension; and the very cKarmln?
young lady y. bo held out her hand
with a diffldent smile and a becoming
blush of obvious pleasure upon her
face evidently appreciated it
"You need not call rue yonr lady
ship,' " suggested LaJy Grissell Grey-
bank, after a few minutes conversa
tion, in which she also had been
most favorably impressed. "Lady Gris
sell would be more usual; and I shall
call you"
"Loftinia Lofty for short," said her
visitos. -
1 am sure we shall pet on charm
ingly together," said Lady GrisselL
"You will let me advise you as to your
choice of clothe What you have on
I charming most eostly, I am sure;
"I know it does not quite St," said
her TiHtor rather ttueasily, trying to
if her back In the plas behind her. '
"And a pU biu, ii I mny vsuture to

ladyshin. "Voa see I hav great ex

It miht have been SKgjrested that
Lady Grissell waa uneliish in not
lavishing the results of her experi

ly gave rather a critical glance toward
"llut is there nothing that you wonld
like to say to me," Bald Lady GrisselL
"I ought to Bay at once, by the way,
how pleased I am that you do not talk
like an American at all." ,
It was an unfortunate suggestion,
for it evidently made Miss Loftinia
McXease nervous, and produced in th
next sentence that she ntk-red a naj
alty that was quito alarming. It was
only aa inquiry about the timo at
which tlie meals of the household took
place, end it was the only question
that th nked during the whole inter
view; bat whether the look of horror
that passed into Ltry (lrii-vtt"W:eBS
she answered froze her blood which it
was quite calculated to do v not. at
that prvciic moment Mi- Loftinia Me
Nease fainted.
It was not a dead faint; there was
nothing undignified or unplcasaut
about it; it could hardly be said that
her features were Invaded by on unbe
coming pallor; bnt her expressive dark
eyes closed, she held a perfumed lace
handkerchief to her rot-j lips, and
with a low moan sank back tn her
chair. One of her ladyships own
daughters would not have succumbed
to indisposition in a morobecoming
manner than this unsophisticated
daughter of a Yankee mill-owner; it
really was one of the most winning In
cidents of the whole interview, and
Lady Grisscl Greyback bent over her
with the tenderness of a mother and
her own smelling bottlo in ber hand.
"May I lay down?" she murmured
"Yin shall lie upon the sofa," whis
pered Lady GrisKell, slightly accentuat
ing the "lie."
"Unt some of your swell friends will
come in," murmured the graceful be
lug, dropping in the arni-clialr. "
"I will con luat you to my bedroom,
and order tho carriage to take you
home," said Lady Grissell. ".My maid
shall help you upstairs.1'
"If I may bo quiet for a quarter of
an honr I shall be all riffht 1 think I
can get thoro by myself; please don't
ring, your ladyship Lady Grissell." .
So she herself accompanied her up
stairs, and with her own hand drew
down the blind, while Miss Loftinia, in
spite of the gold-topped smelling-bottle
in her hiind, apparently fainted
again, with her head on the lace-bor-dcred
plllow.and her lady ship re turned
to the drawing-room to send a message
to her coachman.
Ten minutes later Mr. Loftiis Hindi
acre called, and was duly concerned to
learn of what had occurred,
"Sho Is so charming! I am so sorry
for her; she looks delicate," said Lady
"Does she?" said her nephew. "Well,
I'm glad you like her, anyhow."
"She is wonderful," said his aunt
"If she did not call my friends swells
and If she always talked with ns little
accent as sho did when she was at her
ease, I should hardly know that she
was not English."
"Women are so wonderfully adapta
ble," said her nephow.
"Excuse me," said his aunt; "I told
them to bring In any letter that
came. I am expecting an answer to an
invitation I only sent out last night."
And she took a couple of letters from a
silver salver.
"I dou't understand," she r.aid.
" 'Dear Lady Urcybanlt, I am sorry
not to call on you to-day, but some
friends of mine who are going back to
America right away Insist on my going
with them to see the Tower of London.
Yours sincerely,
"Loftinia McNust.'"
"Ilut she's here," said ber ladrship.
"I suppose she changed her mind,"
said Mr. lilackacre.
"Some women do sometimes. Ily the
way, who was the pretty girl I met on
tho stairs? I know her face, some
how." "You met no one on the stairs," said
his aunt "No one has been here but
Miss McUcase."
"A lovely pirl with light blue rib
bons all over her hat. Miss McNoase
has one rather like it," said Mr. Mack-:
Vilut that was Miss Mc Nease," said
Lady Grissell.
"Skittles," said her nephew. "It was
not unlike her maid, who is one of the
best-looking " "

live minute later he was ringing
her bell for her maid, while she lay
weeping on her bed with an empty
Jewel case in her band.
1 ivo days later he feared that the
anxiety over the failure cf the police
to recover the Grcybank diumonds
was unhinging her mind.
Hut her roaid thought differently. In
the privacy of the housekeeper's rooms
nhe confided to the butler: "itnin'tthe
fear of not ccttinjj them back that's
keeping the old lady awake at nights;
it's the fear that if they ore got back
folks '11 find out she sold them long1
ogo, and they're ail paste." And the
police declared that, called In so late
and supplied with such Indefinite in
formation, pursuit was useless. And

VVbj- "Old Leather Kreeehn" Threatened
to Keep aa Almanac at Home.
"Old Leather Breeches" was at one
time the best known guide Hnd trapper
in l'ike county, Pennsylvania. He
lived in the woods not many miles from
Milford, the eounty seat. Ilia proper
name no one knew, but on account of
the leather trousers which he invaria
bly wore be was known by every one
as 'Old Leather lireeches."
Only occasional visits were made by
the old man to town, and then he came
for tobacco and whisky. One Sunday
morning he walked into town, and
upon arriving at his favorite trading
pluc was surprised to see it closed. -
"Hello," said he, "somebody dead,
I guess."
Proceeding leisurely down the main
street he went to another store, only
to find this closed also. Completely
nonplussed the trapper hailed the first
passerby with, "Say, who Is dead?
Must be some big gun, I guess. Where
is the funeml?"
"Why, this is Sunday, old man," re
plied the villager. .
"Sunday I, Sunday!" ejaculated "Old
Leather lireeches," In surprise. "Well,
I gniess I'll have to keep an almanac to
home after this. Had all my trouble
for nothing." N. Y. Herald.

After many txperimrnta It has at
length entered into t ie mind of those
who provide for the "summer girl"
that a union between her skirt and
bodice is a possibility. Hsttoni and
buttonholes meant a great deal of la

meant the ruining of bands. The be
jeweled and silver affair used so fre
quently oa the ribbon belt were after
alt too conspicuous. Now sets of

ruffles of Valenciennes edge mark the

meet, and when they do the effect is
wonderfully fairy like.
The thrifty damsel does not bny cor
set covers trimmed elaborately. In
stead sho purchases perfectly ylaiu
waists of fine material and to them
she adds trimmings of lace, embroide

dictates. The effect may be as "Huf

decidedly less than she would give for
trimmed underwear. .
In these days when the outsides of
bodices have but little connection w ith
the linings, except in the under-arm
seams, it is easy to have beautifully
neat Insides to dross waists. When the
bones hnv been pat in the darts, the

Crossing down the other day in haste
to catch a train, tho horse-car was three
times blocked by great vans which
stood upon the track. I looked

Simple Treatment of a Very Annoying
Young children are very liable to af
fections of the mouth which, though
not dangerous, invariably produce dis
comfort and fret fulness.
One of the commonest causes of sore
mouth in babies is to bo found In the
irritation of teething.though any local
irritant will cause the same trouble.
Another frequent cause is gastric dis
turbance, a fuct which Is shown by the
acidity of the stomach and by the
character of the intestinal discharges.
The first Indication which usually
appears In cases of inflammation of the
lining membranes of the mouth is rest
lessness on the part of the infant, and
an indisposition to nurse.
On looking Into the mouth we ob
servo that the gums and other parts
are reddened and inflamed in certain
places, and lre snd there are white
specs like pimples. If tho inflammation
is not cared for and promptly subdued,
these pimples toon break down and be
come open sores.
The principal point In the treatment
of sore mouth is to correct any goneral
or special cause upon which tlie local
trouble seems to lie dependent The
bowels should be kept regulated, and
the acidity of the stomach controlled.
If the disturbances of the stomach and
bowels are not very marked a little
magnesia or liraewater added to the
milk, or given separately, will prove
all that is required.
As a local remedy we may wash out
the mouth with a mild preparation
like borax and water or a solution of
alum and carbolic acid. There is no
special rule to be followed in preparing
washes for the mouth, except that they
ahall be cleansing and non-irritating.
A very good way to treat sore mouth
is to swab out the month carefully
with warm water two or three times a
day, afterward putting on the tongue
a pinch of powder made of equal parts
of powdered white sugar and borate of
We should remember, however, in
treating this affection, that It rarely
comes of itself, but is almost always
significant of tome more general dis
turbance. Youth's Companion.

, There are some people whose self
complacency seems hard to disturb. A
well-grounded idea of their own value
and self-importance may account for
their enviable state of mind, and it is
comfortable never to be troubled with
a doubt that one is not "just as good
as the next man." But another cause
of assertive elf-c6mplacency must be
a quickness of wit which can always
cap some one else' achievement with
another equally as good. Whether or
not the self-complacent mood be agree
able to the egotist or the .reverse, its
too frequent display is apt to make a
person appear somewhat ridiculous.
An old copybook axiom declares that
"'modesty is the banner of merit," and
boastful persons are apt to make claims
which their social world discounts. It
Is well for most of us to aim at a high,
er eminence, not to rest satisfied with
our present attainments. The pool
