"Two good months rWe occupied 'em, and It atauds Rsou, nia'ain, 11s a uura woru idow woman, s bat ouly her Mo look to, wants to see tbe I of ber uiouey.

IUI " Paul sViw to have iuconveui- enced you, Mrs. Locksley," she said, "but I was, ot course, ob liged to settlo the undertaker' bill at ouce, and that bas taken all the ready uiouey which I bad at com mand. I have wrttteu to my bus band's relatives, however, aud ex pect remittances very shortly, which " Mrs. Locksley compressed her N.. "I've beard that same tiling from my lodgers before, ma'am said she. "All I can say is that I would like to have tbe bill paid as soon as possible." "It shall be paid, to-uielit, Mrs. Locksley, without fail," said Theo dora, her cheeks becoming even hotter than before. And the instant tbe door closed opon tbe short, stout figure of tbe landlord, she let her bead fall 011 her clasped bands aud burst Into tears. Tears that were almost like dis tilled fire, so scalding aud bitter were tbey. Theodora Dale bad been married only three months. She bad been a schoolgirl of ouly seventeeu at Madame Bon- inercrs establishment, wuen Major Lionel Dale saw and admired her. He made some careless inquiries about tbe young beauty with tbe guselle-like eyes, scarlet lips, and blue-black balr that clustered no low upon ber forehead, aud learned iu an inoideutal son ot a way that she was on orphan, .training at tbe expense of Madame Bonmerel, her self, for a governess. 'Hang it!" said Major Dale, "she's too pretty for that. I'll marry her. . Little Theodora Maytler, who had aearoely left oft playing with her dolls, and who was heartily siok of Madame Bonmerci's ex actijus on the one side, aud the unconscious tyranny of the chil dren on the other, was half frit- eeetliug each other In ber cheeks. ulou are tbe prettiest little half- blown roeebud in tbe world." the major made answer, gallantly. JUailame Boumervi spoke a word or so of warning to ber. . My child," said she,-"beware what you are about, lie is three times yoar age he gambles. It la true that your life, now, is a bard one, but I shall marry aim," retorted Theodora. Aud she did. At tbe end of the three months. Major Dale's favorite horse ran away with bim aud killed bint, and Theodora, not yet eighteen, was left a widow. Naturally enough she wtote to ber husband's relation, whom she bad never seen, siid uow, upon this October eveuing, she was expecting an auswer to tbe letter. Tbe color mounted to her face as the footman paused under tbe win dow. She caught the letter from bis bauds and tore it eagerly oeo It contained uothiug but ber own letter, returnee: to uer, witn these words penciled across tbe en veke "Mr. (Jbaudos Dale's compli ments 10 tbe young lady who be guiled hi brother into a secret uiarriuge, and be Is confidently ot opinion that ber talents iu the bus band buntiug Hue need no assis tance." And this insulting tanuttbis era tuitous assault, was all. Theodora sat pale ami silent. She knew that her husband did not cure to refer to bis relatives much, generally avoiiiiuz tbe sub- ject when she broached it, but she bad never dreamed that be bad al lowed them to thiuk ber a mere ad venturess, who had contrived to entrap bim into a disadvantageous marriaze, She bad long ere this discovered Lionel Dale was a thoroughly self Uli man, but she had uever dream ed how selli all. But tbe blow, shurp and sudden us it was, nerved her to further exertions. She put on ber hut, went to tbe nearest jeweler, aud sold her watch and chain Lionels weddiug pres eut tor probably about one-third of iu worth. With this she paid bur bill at Mrs. Locksley's, "Begging your pardon, ma'am," suid the old lodging-house keeper, "but what are you going to do now P "I'm going to give tuusio les sons," said Theodora. She bad a full, fresh voice, like a lark's, and sue knew mat sue conld make this oue gift of God a bread wiunef. " It will be a life of drudgery," she told herself, "but I would starve sooner than apply again to the Dales for assistance." And tbe years crept by, aud the seveuteen-year-old widow who stormed the citadel of fortune so bravely, won the day. "SiguorA Theodora Dulli. No, I haven't beard her yet," said Mr. Chandos Dale, iudiflureutly. "But they say she is the best Marguerite we have yet bad, and I have sent to secure a box lor to morrow night." Signora Dalli was in ber best voice that night, when Chandos Dale, ber brother-iu-law, sat with folded arms iu tbe proscenium box. And tbe half-blown bud of years ago bad ripened, by this time, into tbe full blown rose of loveliness. Her blue-black hair flouted like a jetty, glimmering veil of brigbtuess dowu ber shoulders; her eyes shone like uiiduigbt stars, while tbe radit aut pink aud white of her cheeks owed uoue of its beauty to the cosmetic arts. And Mr. Chaudos Dale, sittiug there with intent eyes aud an ar tist's soul, all alive to tbe flute like richness of ber voice, thought she was simply the most benutitul crea ture be bad ever seen. Tbe mayor of tbe city where tho signora was singing had a little re ception in ber bouor after tbe opera was over. Chaudos Dale, Of course was among tbe invited guests, and tbeu Sigiioi-tt Dalli knew who he was. " I have tbe advantage of bim," said Theodora to herself, smiling a curious smile. " And I shall take care to retaiu it." Just a mouth afterwards Mr, Dale proposed to make the beantl ful eiguora bis wife. "Are you really In love with meP said tbe signora, opening wide ber almond-shaped eyes, where tbe jetty tire seemed to buru with sleepy lustre. "With me, un opera singer P And Chandos, about as hopeless ly infatuated as It is In the nature ot man to be, vowed that ha would commit Buioido K she didn't have bits at once, "Pat it iu writing," said Signora Theodora Dalli, with a laagb. "WbyP "It is my fancy. " Yoar sill is rut la w," assented Mr. Dfle. So be wrote a very pretty and poetio declaration of love uioii tinted paper, aud sent it to the eig uora a suite of apartments at a pri vate Hotel. The same evening be received the very letter which bad come to Lionel Dale's widow that October sunset, with its penciled bit of sar casm, and ander it written : "The young lady wbo beguiled Mr. Chaudos Dale's brother into a secret marriage has needed no as sistance from hie relatives. The Signora Dalli, otherwise Mrs. Lionel Dale, returns the enclosed compliments and bas the bouor to bid Mr. Chaudos Dale farewell." Theodora uever eujeyed auy thing so much iu all ber life as she did tbe writing of this letter. bbe bad eouquered ber own for tune now. She was indebted to no one, and tbe next mouth she was married to a youug Englishman wbo bad fol lowed ber bright eyes ball over tbe confluent, while Mr. Dale bad the satisfaction or kuowlngtuat be had wrought out his own destiny. Forbidden Kisses. Detroit Free Pre). "Remember," said a Fort street physician to his wife as ho was leaving home for a tew days, "and do not let the children kiss auy oue." "Is it possible, asked a third party who was present, that you consider it uecesaary to give such Instructions as that! Where is the danger P "Tbe danger is so complicated, aud yet so certain, that it would take too much time to describe it here," said the doctor, looking at his watch. "In my case, all kinds of people come to my house and office to consult me, aud they often wait for hours. If one of my chil dren bappeus to come in, tbey are almost certalu to talk to it, aud you know that tbe first impulse with people who notice children, is to kiss them, lluh T it makes me shudder tainted aud diseased breaths, lips blue a ith cancer, foul and decayed teeib.

Liuudreds of children are kissed in to their graves every year." "But, doctor, bow ean a mother be so ungracious as to refuse to allow people to kiss her children P "There need be no ungracious uess about It, or, if there were, which is the most important, the Baity and well being of the child, or the perinittiug of a habit ot ill- breeding and doubtful morality at best! Let the mother teach the child that it is not a kitten or a lap- dog, to be picked up aud foundled by every stranger, and resist every attempt to kiss It. Wby, there are agents and peddlers iu household wares, who make it a custom to catch up a child and kiss aud pet it, and so interest tbe mother that she will buy something that she does not want. 1 tell you that there is death in tbe kiss 1 Tho beloved and lamented 1'riii cess Alice ot Hesse took diptheria from tbe kiss of ber child, and fol lowed it to the grave.
