"Tiny! Tiny! what is the hired maa
"Hu's planting strinj-beans, father!"
a swept voice answered.
Mr. Chudwell, in his anxiety to per
sonally superintend the progress of his
farm-work, had nearly twisted himself
out of his chair, with both elbows oa
the window-sill, and his wrinkled, care
worn old face peering between the
heart-shaped leaves of the morning
glories. Justine, his daughter, was washing
the blue-edged dishes in the adjoining
room, a tall, brown-eyed girl, with lux
uriant dark locks waving away from
her forehead, and a healthful shade of
sunburn on. her cheek.
"String-beans! string-beans! Non
sense, nonsense!" impatiently exclaim
ed tho farmer. "What's all this gar
den truck for, except to pamper your
appetites? It's the corn ought to be
got into the ground and the potatoes
and tho parsnips and those things that
sell well in the market! Oh dear! oh
dear! things don't go as they used to

"The cows aren't in the tnaplo mead

"They are off on the blackberry pas
"And who said they was to be chang
ed?" snarled Mr. Chudwell, growing
especially cross, as a sharp rheumatic
pang seemed to be tying a double bow
knot in the muscles of his leg. "Am I
the master of this place, or ain't I?
Hey? Answer mo that!"
"Joseph Fielding says that the fences
aro badly out of repair in the maplo
meadow, said Tiny; "and he thinks
"Thinks, does he?" growled Farmer
Chudwell, screwing up his featuros as
the double bow-knot seemed to unite
itself again, with lingering throes of
pain. "Well he ain't no business to
think. He's only my hired man, after
all! I'm able to do the thinking for
myself, yet awhile, I guess!"
"He's doing the best he can, father,"
"And it ain't your place to bomakin'
exenses for him, neither," added Mr.
Chudwell. "Eh! Hello! What'sthat
he's bringin' across tho garden?"
Tiny leaned out over her father's
shoulder to see.
"It's tho tiger-lilies!" she cried joy
ously. "Mrs. JBruoe has given me some
roots of those beautiful tiger-lilies!
And Joe is going to plant them at tho
She went singing back to her work,
for Tiny Chudwell had all a woman's
fondness for beautiful things, and dur
ing her father's administration, not so
much as a daisy root or a blue larkspur
was allowed to encroach on the garden
ground. ' '
Tho very hollyhocks whose scarlet
heads nodded over the wall of the door- ,
yard were only tolerated because It was
too mnch trouble to dig their long tap
But Joseph Fielding liked flowers as
well as Tiny. He had planted a Mich
igan rose by the well and sowed sweet
pea seeds under the kitchen window
and here, at last, were the tiger-lilies
her artist-soul had socoveted! And, in
her mind's eye, she could already see
tho great orange darlings, their fiery
petals blotched with black, nodding
like spots of vivid color in the July sun
shine. Sho had always wanted a bunch of
tiger-lilies by the porch. She had
looked longingly at them as they blos
somed in her neighbors' yards sho
had fancied how orientally lovely they '
would look among the clustering pale
green southernwood and now her
dream of beauty was to come truo at
But Farmer Chudwell had his ideas
on the subject, also. He had never
been what the world calls "a pleasant'
mnn, in his palmiest days, and it
seemed as if he grew crustier and sourer
than ever, when misfortune crept slowly
upon him. '
First the old mill-stream which had
turned the wheel for generations un
counted, went dry probably, as Mr. '
Chudwell bitterly remarked, "in conse
quenee o' them waterworks, as every
body was taxed for, and nobody want
ed,'1 and the mill business had to be
And then there was a yearof niildew
lu tno corn, ana subtle rot in the potato
fields, and iust as the apple crop ripen
ed in a prolusion of crimson and gold,
the price of apples fell so that it was
hardly worth while to gather them into
"I won't sell 'em!" roared tho fanner.
"I'd sooner dig 'era into the ground to
fertilize the soil! It's a swindle! Tlio
markets are In league against mo!"
And the vineyard of young grape
vines which he had planted so carefully
on the rocky terraces at the south sidu
of his farm, succumbed to a prolonged
drought, and an embryo cyclone car
ried away tho roof of the best barn,
and then came the grim tyrant rheuma
tism, and old Chudwell felt that his
cup was indeed full!
And then camo tho man who had a
mortgage on the place a grim, square,
business-like personage, who chewed a
cherry-tree leaf as he talked, and had a
particularly aggravating way of half-
closing one eye.
"Can t pay it?'' said Mr. Blifil. "Hut
it runs out in October, and I was led to
believe it would be paid up promptly."
"I was a-calculatm' to pay it, said
Simeon Chudwell sadly. "But I've had
such bad luck."
"We don't allow for no snch thing as
luck where business is concerned," said
"Couldn't you give me another year?"
said Simeon imploringly.
"Well, no," said Blilil, still masticat
ing the cherry-leaf. "The fact is, Mr.
Chudwell, I've got better investments
for my money than six per cent, mort
gages. Capital is capital, nowadays!
And money s worth its face value."
"Well, I'll soo what I can do," said
Mr. Chudwell with a sinking heart.
He did. But, so far as his vision ex
tended, nothing could bo done. And
so he sat and waited grimly for fate to
do its worst.
Not tho least of his griefs was the
being compelled to sit, like a superan
uated old man, at the window, and see
Joseph Fielding's strong arm doing
what he had been wont to do, Joseph
Fielding's brain planning out the work
which Tie alone had hitherto had the
"lou're such a master hand at work,
Joe," he said one day in the bitterness

"Oh," said Joo mildly ignoring tho
Barcastio sting of the remark, "I have
got a little. I'm one of tho kind, you
know, that's always lookin' forward to
a rainy day. And I don t ny:an to be
caiight without an umbrella."
But on this especial day it seemed to
him that Joseph Fielding had heaped
up the measure of his offences, in this
matter of tho tiger-lilies, past endur
ance. : "I'll teach him," said Mr. Chudwell
to himself. "And I'll teach her too.
How ho contrived to limp as far as
the front porch, he who had not left
his armchair without help for weeks, no
one knew. But when Tiny went out to
look at her tiger-lily roots that evening,
just between daylight and dark, tho
ground was all plowed and riddlml, as
if some infuriated beast had torn it
with its hoofs. While tho lily bulbs,
withered by the sun and torn apart, lay
scattered wildly about.
"Who has done this?" sho cried with
a gasp of griof and terror.
"I did!" defiantly answered Chud
well, looking up from tho newspaper
he was reading by the light of tin-
lamp. ' "With my stick! I'll have
none of this posy and tiger-lily busi
ness on my farm, and you and Joo
Fielding may as well understand it first
Poor Tiny! Well, what else could
she have expected? Had it not been
so all her life long?
The summer went by, and Tiny Chud
well had no tiger-lilies blossoming
by tho door-stone. Yet Joe Fielding
always kept a tall stalk of the vivid
orange-flowers in the broken tumbler
on the sink, where Tiny washed tho
"So Blifil has sold the mortgage,"
said Mr. Chudwell, one day, with a

could have expected anything different
of him. But I would like to know who

"I b ready to move Into the little

"Well," said Joseph Fielding, who
had come into the house to get a tmw
buckle for tho harness he was mending.
"I don't calculate the new man's going

sharply. . v

Joe came and sat down on the table.
Tiny brought her knitting to tho foot
stool close by, ana thus they discussed
tho now f uturo which lay before them.
And Chudwell, strangely softened, laid
his hand on Tiny'S dark-brown brad. :

Mrs. Arthur's Grave.
Knowing that Mrs. Morgan was ablo
to speak from long and intiiuato knowl
edge of General and Mrs. Arthur, I
asked her many questions about tho lat
ter, by whoso grave in tho rural ceme
tery at Albany I had stood a few days
previous. The sarcophagus that covers
the grave is of the finest Italian marble,
and around its edgo, liko a running
vine, are carved in relief, in antique
lettering, her name, Ellon Herndon
Arthur, the date and place of her birth,
Culpeper, Va., August 30, 1837. and of
her death, New York, January 12, 1H80.
Tho inscription begins at tho lower left
hand corner, bringing tho husband's
name, Chester A. Arthur, across the
head of the sarcophagus. The father
and mother of the President, and Jane,
one of his five sisters, who died at 18,
lie on the same lot; also Mrs. Herndon,
tho mother of Mrs. Arthur, and William
Herndon Arthur, their eldest child.
It is a very unpretentious sepulcher
for the household of the head of tho na
tion, and it is not easily found, lying
well to the rear of tho handsome old
cemetery, of which it forms a part; but
tho grass of tho burial plot has been
worn nearly bare by tho feet of many
pilgrims, and the myrtle vine, which
grows thriftily around tho edgo of the
marble block that covers Mrs. Arthur's
grave, is reverently despoiled of in
numerable slips to he, pressed within
the leaves of feminine bibles and al
bums as a memorial of her whoso pa
thetic fate it was to fade suddenly out
of life just when that life had reached
its full-orbed matronly prime and was
Hearing the zenith of the proudest
American woman's ambition. Mrs.
Arthur has left a vivid and pleasing
memory in the circles of New York and
Albany in which she moved. She was.
a singing spirit, going winsomely
through life. Mrs. Morgan speaks of
tho more than ordinary attachment be
tween the husband and wife, and of his
accompanying her into society more
than most men so engrossed in official
lifo. Her death, of pneumonia, was
occasioned by a cold contracted one
rainy Friday at a dinner party, from
which sho went to a concert, and it oc
curred the following Monday evening.

There is a placo called Three-mile
Point, which every traveler remembers
who has journeyed by carriage from
Hichlield Springs to Cooperstown,
through the beautiful country lying on
the borders of Ostego lake. . At this
point, three miles from Cooperstown, a
New England man named Thayer has
a veranda-bordered cottage, which en
joys a great reputation for its dinners,
and there parties from Richfield anil
Cooperstown come all through the
pleasure season to dine by special ar
rangement, late in September, and Mr.
liiuyer told us that tien. and Mrs. Ar
thur and the children came there annu
ally tho last six years of her life, on tho
30th of August, to eat a dinner in honor
of her birthday.
Ho said tho household, even to the
servants, were always delighted with
her coming, and when she good-naturedly
sat down to sing at the piano, as she
always did, they would open the kitch
en doors to listen, and she had a smilo
and a kind word for all, remembering
their names from ono year to another,
and saying something bright and merry
to each. He came to Washington last
winter and went to tho WThito House to
see his old patron, who expressed pleas

talked over the old days with him for
an hour or more. All that I hear of
Mrs. Arthur in the state which became
hers by adoption Jills me with sincere
regret that the White House should

and admirable a-mistress. It was sad

beaten at the poll by one whom wo

day the defeated candidate strolled in
to a saloon where he owed a consider

"But, don't you soc, if 'I had been

The man with ono eye said nothing.
At such a time, ami under such circum

"A coward has no business traveling

that every man could hear.

finger. We were rive fools in a row.
There was a painful lull after tho last
shot, and it lasted a full minute : before
tho stranger turned to us and ' remark
ed in a quiet, cutting manner:
"Gentlemen, ye kin drop yer hands!"
We dropped. We undertook to thank
him, and we wanted to shake hands,
and somebody suggested a shake-nurse
for his benefit, but he motioned us into
the coach, banged the door after us,
and climbed up to a seat beside the
driver. His contempt for such a crowd
could not be measured. M. Qnwl.
A singular spring is located within a
few miles of Laramie, the discovery of
which does not date back very far, and
a description of which has never ap
peared in -print The so-called "soda
lakes" aro well known to every one
who lives at or near Laramie. In one
of those, and about live or six" feet from
tho shore, stands a large, round bunch
of grass, several feet across. Sur
rounding this little oasis is thei water
of the lake so strongly impregnated
with alkali, or sulphate of soda, that it
cannot be held in the mouth more than
a few seconds and inside the oasis is
a pool, or spring, of pure, clear, cold
water! Poles twenty feet .long have
been thrust into this pool without find
ing tho bottom. 1 hough the whole
country thereabouts is literally filled
with alkali, this little spring furnishes
the purest water, and those who pass
the lake often on their way to and from
tho city have placed a wido board from
the bank to the "oasis," and the well
worn path tells how often they have
visited it in order to quench their thirst
New York anil Brooklyn boys, armed
with brickbats and hickory broom
handles, aro to be soon dodging about
tho alleys. They are cat and kitten
catchers, and they Bell tho pelts : aud
heads to furriers and milliners. Iho
prices paid for skins from first hands
aro 3 cents for common yellow and
black cats, 4 cents for large kittens of
tho sumo variety, and from b to 7 ttsnts
for Maltese. Nights and Sundays,
experts say, are the best times to 1 ge
out catting. '. i i
