| 1 i pOOBHOUSE TB PALACE f I Jj CHAPTER Xll.—(Continued.) Here Jenny'* remarks were interrupt ed by the loud rattling of wheels, and the halloo of many voice*. Going to the door, she aad Mary *aw coming down the road at a furious rate the old hay cart, laden with young people from Chic opee, who had been berrying In Stur brldge and were now returning home in high glee. The horses were fantastically trimmed with ferns and evergreens, while several of the girls were ornamented In the same way. Conspicuous among the lioisy group was Ella Campbell. Henry Lincoln's broad-brimmed hat was rest ing on her long curls, while her white sun-bonnot was tied under Henry's chin. The moment Jenny appeared the whole party set up a shout so deafening that the Widow Perkins came out in a trice to see "if the Old Harry was to pay, or what." No sooner did Henry Lincoln got sight of Mary than springing to his feet, and swinging his arm around his head, he screamed out: "Three cheers for the schoolma'am and her handsome lover, Billy! Hurrah!" "Wasn't that smart?" said Jenny, when at last the hay cart disapeared from view, and the noise and dust had somewhat subsided. Then as she saw the tears in Mary's eyes she added, "Oh, I wouldn't care if they did tease me about Billy Bender. I'd as lief be teased about him as not." "It isn't that," said Mary, smiling in spite of herself, at Jeuny's frankness. "It isn't that. I didn't like to hear Ella sing with your brother, when she must have known he meant, to annoy me." "That certainly was wrong," retained Jenny, "but Ella isn't so much to blame as Henry, who seems to have acquired a great inlluence over her during the few weeks he has been at home. You know she 1s easily flattered, and I dare say Henry has fully gratified her vanity in that respect, for he says she is the only decent looking girl in Chicopee. But see, there comes Mrs. Masoa; I guess she wonders what is keeping you so long." The moment Mrs. Mason entered the school room, Jenny commenced talking about Mount Holyoke, her tongue run ning so fast that it entirely prevented anyone else from speaking until she stop ped for a moment to take breath. Then Mrs. Mason very quietly remarked that if Mary wished to go to Mount Holyoke she could do so, Mary looked up inquir ingly, wondering what mine had opened so suddenly at her feet; but she received no explanation until Jenny had bidden her good-by and gone. Then she learn ed that Mrs. Mason had just received one hundred dollars from a man In Boston, who had years before owed it to her hus band, and was unable to pay it sooner. "And now," said Mrs. Mason, "there is no reason why you should not go to Mount Holyoke, if you wish to." "Oh, what a forlorn-looking place!" exclaimed Hose Lincoln, as from the win dows of the crowdeil vehicle in which they had come f.'om the cars she first ob tained a view of the not very handsome village of South Hadley. Rose was In the worst of humors, for by some mischance Mary was on the aame seat with herself, and consequently she was very much distressed and crowd ed. She, however, felt a little afraid of Aunt Martha, who she saw was inclined to favor the object of her wrath, so she restrained her fault-finding spirit until nhe arrived at South Hadley, where ev erything came in for a share of her dis pleasure. "That the seminary!" said she con temptuously, as they drew up before the building. "Why, it isn't half as lurge or handsome as I supposed. Oh, horror! I know I shan't stay here long." The furniture of the parlor was also very offensive to the young lady, and when Miss Lyon came in to meet them she, too, was secretly styled "a prim, fussy, slippery-tongued old maid." Jenny, however, who aiways saw the bright side of everything, was completely charmed with the sweet smile and placid face. After some conversation between Miss I,yon and Aunt Martha it was decided that Rose and Jenny should room togeth er, as a matter of course, and that Mary should room with Ma. Itose had fully intended to room with Ida herself, an. 1 this decision made lur very angry; but there was no help for it, and she was obliged to submit. Ami now in a few days life at Mount Holyoke commenced in earnest. Although perfectly healthy, Mary looked rather delicate, and it was for this reason, per haps. that the sweeping anil dusting of several rooms were assigned to her, as her portion of the labor. Ida and Rose fared much worse, and were greatly shocked when told that they both belong ed to the wash circle! "I declare," said Rose, "It's too bad. I'll walk home before I'll do it;" and she glanced at her white hauds, to make sure they were not already discolored by the dreadful soapsuds! Jenny was delighted with her allot ment, which was dish-washing. "I'm glad I took a lesson at the poor house years ago." said she one day to Rose, who snappishly replied: "IM shut up about the poorhouse, or they'll think you the pauper instead of Jlacl:im Howard." "I'i.iiper? Who's a pauper?" asked Lucy Downs, eager to hear so desirable a piece of news. Ida Seidell's large black eyes rested reprovingly upon Rose, who nodded to ward Mary, and forthwith Miss Downs departed with the information, which was not long in reaching Mary's ears. "Why, Mary, what's the matter?" ask ed Ida, when, toward the close of the day, sh« found her companion weeping in her room. Without lifting her head Mary replied, "It's foolish in me to cry, I know, but why need I always be re proached with having been a pauper? I couldn't help it, I promised mother I would take care of little Allie as long as she lived, and if she went to the poor house I had to go too." "Virl wh'j was little Allie?" asked Ida, taking Mary's hot hauds between her own. In a few words Mary reluteil her his tory, omitting her acquaiutaiice with George Moreland, and commencing at the night when her mother died. Ida was warm-hearted and affectionate, and cared but little whether one were rich or poor if she liked them. From the first she had been interested in Mary, and now wind ing her arms about her neck, and kissing away her tears, she promised to love her, and to be to her as true and faithful a friend as Jenny. This promise, which was never broken, was of great benefit to Mary, drawing to her side many of the best girls in school, who soon learned to love her for herself, and not because the wealthy Miss Selden seemed so fond of her. Soon after Mary went to Mount Hol yoke she had received a letter from Billy, in which he expressed his pleasure that she was at school, but added that the fact of her being there interfered great ly with his plan of educating her him self. "Mother's ill health," said he, "pre vented me from doing anything until now, and just as I am in a fair way to accom plish my object someone else has stepped in before me. But it is all right, and as you do not seem to need my services at present 1 shall next week leave Mr. Sel den's employment, and go into Mr. Wor thington's law office as clerk, hoping that when the proper time arrives I shall not be defeated in another plan which was formed in boyhood, and which has become the gloat object of my life." Mary felt perplexed and troubled. Billy's letters of late had been more like those of a lover than a brother, and she could not help guessing the nature of "the plan formed in boyhood." She knew she should never love him except with a sister's love, and though she could not tell him so her next letter lacked the tone of affection with which she was accus tomed to write, and was on the whole a rather formal affair. Billy, who readily perceived the change, attributed it to the right cause, and from that time his let ters became far less cheerful than usual. Mary usually cried over them, wishing more than once that Billy would trans fer his affection from herself to Jenny, and it was for this reason, perhaps, that without stopping to consider the propri ety of the matter, she first asked Jenny to write to him, and then encouraged her in answering his notes, which became gradually longer and longer, until at last his letters were addressed to Jenny, while the notes they contained were directed to Mary! CHAPTEK XIII. Rapidly the days passed on at Mount Holyoke. Autumn faded into winter, whose Icy tireath floated for a time over the mountain tops, and then melted away at the approach of spring, which, with its swelling buds and early flowers, gave way in its turn to the long bright days of summer. And now only a few weeks re mained ere the annual examination at which Ida was to be graduated. Neither Rose nor Jenny were to return the next year, and nothing but Mr. Lin coln's firmness and good sense had pre vented their being sent for when their mother first heard that they had failed to enter the middle class. Mrs. Lincoln's mortification was undoubtedly greatly in creased from the fact that the despised Mary had entered in advance of her daughters. "Things are comiug to a pret ty pass," said she. "Yes, a pretty pass; but I might have known better than to send my children to such a school." She insisted upon sending for Rose and Jenny, but Mr. Lincoln promptly re plied that they should not come home. Still, as Rose seemed discontented, com plaining that so much exercise made her side and shoulder ache, and as Jenny diil not wish to remain another year un less Mary did, he consented that they should leave school at the close of the term, ou condition that they went some where else. "I shall never make anything of Hen ry," said he, "but my daughters shall receive every advantage, and perhaps one or the other of them will comfort my old age." He had spoken truly with regard to Henry, who was studying, or pretending to study, law in the same office with Billy Render. But his father heard no favor able accounts of him, and from time to time large bills were presented. So It is no wonder the disappointed father sighed, and turned to his daughters for the comfort his only son refused to give. For the examination at Mount Holyoke great preparations were being made. Rose, knowing she was not to return, seemed to think all further effort on her part unnecessary; anil numerous were the reprimands, to say nothing of the black marks which she received. Jenny, on the contrary, said she wished to retrieve her reputation for laziness, and leave behind a good impression. So, never before in her whole life hail she behaved so well, or studied as hard as she did (luring the last few weeks of her stay at Mount Hol yoke. Ida, who was expecting her fath er, aunt and cousin to be present at the auniversary, was so engrossed with her studies that she did uot observe how sad aud low-spirited Mary seemed. She had tasted of knowledge and now thirst ed for more; but it could not be; the funds were exhausted, aud she must leave the school, never perhaps to return again. "How much I shall miss my music, and how much I shall miss you," she said one day to Ida, who was girlug her a lesson. "It's too bad you haven't a piano," re turned Ida, "you are so fond of it, and improve so fast!" Then after a Moment, she added, "1 have a plan to propose, and may as well do It now as at uny time. Next winter you must spend with nie iu Boston. Aunt Martha and I arranged it the last time I was at home, and we even selected your room, which is next to mine, aud opposite to Aunt Martha's. Now, what does your ladyship say to it?" "She says she can't go," aaswerod Mary. "Can't go!" repeated Ida. "Why not? Jenny will be in the city, and you are ulwnys happy where she is; beside*, you will have a rare chance for taking miisTe lessons of our host teachers; and thi>n, too. you will lie in tlie same house with George, nnil thai alone is worth going to Boston for. 1 think." Ma little suspected that her Inst argu ment was the strongest objection to Mary's going, for. much ns she wished to meet George again, she felt that she would not on any account go to his home, lest he should think she came on pur pose to see him. There were oilier rea sons, too, why she did not wish to go. Henry and Hose Lincoln would hoth lie in the city, and she knew that neither of them would scruple to do or say any thing which they thought wonifl annoy her. Mrs. Mason, too, missed her, anil longed to have her at home; so she resist ed all Ida's entreaties, and the next let ter which went to Aunt Martha carried her refusal. In a day or two Mary received two let ters. one from Billy and one from Mrs. Mason, the latter of which coutaineil money for the payment of her bills: hut, on offering it to the principal, how was she surprised to learn that her bills had not only been regularly paid and receipt ed, hut that ample funds were provided for the defraying of her expenses during the coming year. A faint sickness stole over Mary, for she instantly thought of Billy Bender, and the obligation she would now lie under to him forever. Then it occurred to her how impossible it was that he should have earned so much in so short a time; and lis soon ns she could trust her voice to speak, she asked who it was that had thus befriended her. The preceptress was not lit liberty to tell, and with a secret suspicion of Aunt Martha, Mary returned to her room to read the other letter, which was still un opened. Her head grew dizzy, and her spirits faint, as she read the passionate outpouring of a hear* which had cherish ed her image for years, nnil which, though fearful of rejection, would still tell her how much she was beloved. "It is no sudden fancy," said he. "Once, Mary, I believed my affection for you returned, but now you are changed. Your letters are brief and cold, and when I look around for the cause I am led to fear that I was deceived in thinking you ever loved me. If 1 am mistaken, tell me so; hut If I am not, if you enn never be tny wife. I will school myself to think of you as a brother would think of an only and darling sister." For several days Mary had not been well, and the excitement produced by Billy's tetter tended to increase her ill ness. During the hours in which she was alone that day she had ample time for reflection, and before night she wrote a letter to Billy, iu which she told him how impossible it was for her to be the wife of one whom she had always loved as an own and dear brother. This letter caused Mary so much effort, and so many hitter tears, that for several days she continued worse, and nt last gave up nil hope of be ing present at the examination. "Oh, it's too bad!" said Ida, "for I do want you to see Cousin George, and 1 know he'll be disappointed, too, for I never saw anything like the interest he takes in you." A few days afterward, as Mary was lying thinking of Billy, and wondering if she had done right in writing to him as she did, Jenny came rushing in. wild with delight. Her father was downstairs, together with Ida's father, George and Aunt Mar tha. "Most the first thing I did," said she, "was to Inquire after Billy Bender! I guess Aunt Martha was shocked, for she looked so queer. George laughed, and Mr. Selden said he was doing well, and was one of the finest young men in Boston." During the whole of George's stay at Mount Holyoke Hose managed to keep him at her side, entertaining hint occa sionally with unkind remarks concerning Mary, who, she said, was undoubtedly feigning her sickness so as not to appear in her classes where she knew she could do herself no credit; "but," said she, "as soon as the examinntiou is over she'll get well fast enough and bother us with her company at Chieopee." In this Hose was mistaken, for when the exercises closed Mary was still too ill to ride, and it was lecided that she should remain a few days until Mrs. Ma son could come for her. With mnny tears Ida and Jenny bade their young friend good-by, hilt Hose, when asked to go up and see her, turned away disdainfully, amusing herself during their absence by talking and laughing with George More land. The room In which Mary lay command ed a view of the yard and gateway; and after Aunt Martha, Ida and Jenny hud left, she arose, and stealing to the win dow, looked out upon the company as they departed. She could readily divine which was George Morcland, for Rose Lincoln's shawl and satchel were thrown over his arm, while Hose herself walked close to his elbow, apparently engrossing his whole attention. Once he turned around, but fearful of being observed, Mary drew back behind the window cur tain, and thus lost a view of his face, (To be continued.) Zulus of the Railroads. "Do you know what a Zulu is?" said an old railroad man.

Use Will Increase Until Every Hotel Will Provide Them for Guesta ( an J AH Musinea« Men Will Use Them Them aeivcs, Not Depending Upon Others. Bicycling was a fad, but typewriting Is a fact. The typewriter—it, he, or she—ls In the same claea as the tele phone, telegraph, and linotype. As to usefulness uud universality, typewrit ing is in lis infancy. Thus lar it is used only by those who cannot get along without It. The business man I puts in a writing machine as a luxury, uud regards It as expense. A young ! woman who learns to use a typewriter : feels called upon to explain that she may have to earn her living, and she can equip herself more quickly in this way than in any other. A superin tendent or principal who advocates the introduction of typewriting Into the ! schools feels obliged to prove that It Is due those who may have to earn a | living. The attitude of business men and school people toward typewriting must change entirely, and the time for such j change Is already here. Where one writing machine Is used now there will be ten in use in the near future. The I only trouble up to this time has been that business men, superintendents, and principals rarely use the machine per sonally and advantageously. The type writer is a servant, a helper, doing what the proprietor would have It un derstood that he is above doing, where as the difficulty Is that he cannot do It. As a Yankee, I venture the guess that in the not-distant future the ablest men and women in home and office. In hotel and train will use the machine. To-day, away from home, If one wishes typewriting, he pays a dollar an hour or more for the service, but soon every first-class hotel will have all the writ ing machines which their patronage requires in the writing room and free to ikl guests. Already every first-class new hotel has a long-distance telephone In each room and a man has Its use at any hour of day or night at the same rate that he would pay if he went out and sought a "pay station." In the same way one will be able to say when he registers at any first-class hotel, "I would like a room with a writing ma chine." At first he might have to pay fifty cents a day extra, as he does for a room with bath and lavatory appointments, but that will soon pass away, as the extra charge for the bath is going. Already it Is appreciated that a bath is as Im portant as a washbowl, and so the ne cessity of the writing machine will be early acknowledged. In a word, the future of typewriting Is with the schools. Teach It as uni versally as you teach penmanship, not for the sake of the girls who are to be typewriters, but for the greater ad vantage of the boys and girls who are to be the leaders In social, business, and professional life; not for the purpose of helping a poor girl to be Independ ent, but for making rich and poor alike Independent. The time has come for a universal and emphatic demand for the writing machine In every upper grade of the grammar school, and In every high school, academy, seminary, col lege, and university.—A. E. Wlnshlp, In Normal Instructor. Remarkable Plant Fount by an Ameri can Collector in r'outh America. What is probably the most extraordi nary plant ever discovered has now been found by E. A. Suverkrop of Philadelphia, who, during trips to South America, has for some years been contributing to the collection of bis friend, Prof. N. E. Brown of the Herbarium, ICew Gardens, London. The amazing plant which Mr. Suver krop has now found Is an orchid that takes a drink whenever It feels thirsty by letting down a tube Into the water, the tube when not In use being colleJ up on top of the plant. "One hot afternoon." says Mr. Suver krop, "I sat down under some brush wood at the side of a lagoon on the Itlo de la Plata. Near at hand was a forest of dead shorn trees, which had actually been choked to death by or chids and climbing cacti. In front of me. and stretching over the water of the lagoon and about a foot above it. was a branch of one of these dead trees. Here and there clusters of com mon 'planta del ayre' grew on It and a network of green cacti twined round It. "Among the orchids I noted one dif ferent from the rest, the leaves, sharp, laneehead-shnped, growing all round the root and radiating from it. From 1 the center or axis of the plant hung a long, slender stem about one-eighth of an inch thick by one-fourth inch wide, j the lower end of which was iu the water to a depth of about four inches. "I at ouce went over to examine my discovery. Imagine my surprise, wheu I I touched the plant, to see this (Center stem gradually contract and convul sively roll Itself up In a spiral-like roll of tape. "But more surprising yet was the ob ject an l construction of this stem. 1 found on close examination and dissec tion that it was a long, slender, flat tube, the walls about one-thirty-second of an Inch thick, cellular In construc tion, open at the outer end, and con nected at the Inner end to the root* of a series of halr-Uke tubes. "By subsequent observation I found that when the plant was In want of water this tube would gradually un wind till It dipped Into the water. Then It would slowly coll roufid and wind up, carrying with It the amount of ORCHID TAKES A DRINK. water that that part of the tube which hail been Immersed contained, until when the final coll was taken the water was dumped, as It were, direct Into the roots of the plant. The coll re mained In this position until the plant required more water. Should the plant, however, be touched while the tube In extended, the orchid acts like the sen sitive plant (mimosa) and the colling action is more rapid. "I found many of these plants, all di rectly over the water or over where the water had been. In the latter case It was almost pitiful to see how this tube would work Its way over the ground In search of the water that was not." TAUGHT PRESIDENT'S WIFE.

Little Ida ? Saxton, 5 years old, and daughter of the President of the first school board MRS. MOROAX. of Canton, learned the alphabet ami how to print In neat little characters the words "cat" and "dog" and per haps some two-syllable words from Mrs. J. W. Morgan, of Denver. That all happened away back In the year 1853, but Mrs. Morgan remembers the little girl very well Indeed, "because," she says, "Ida was very quiet and dili gent and lovable." Mrs. Morgan was then Miss Splker, and was the first teacher employed In what were then called the union schools. In Canton there had been great opposition to the Introduction of the graded schools, but Mr. Saxton, whose daughter was to be a President's wfe, was a staunch supporter of them, and so firmly did he believe In the pub lic school that just as soon as his little daughter was old enough she was sent to the primary school of which Miss Splker had charge. "Ida's futher was a wealthy citizen of Canton and she was a very bright and attractive child," said Mrs. Morgan. "We never thought of her, though, as a President's wife. I used to go to their home; in fact, I have an invitation somewhere to the Saxton house." Mrs. Morgan is 76 years old, and has lived In Denver for the last six years. She Is a fine-looking old woman, with something of the primness that Is sup posed to characterize the old-time school teacher.
