Jlrave Little Trude, Gertrude May is my sister-in-law, a bright little fairy of 19, with a pair of eyes like stars, and a merry, thrif ty way about her calculated to make a man forget that this is a hard, work-a-dny world, full of vexation and disappointment. When Annie and I were married we took Gertrude to live with us ; I could not hear the thought of the lovely girl going to meet the world in some menial occupation, and Annie was thankful to have her with her. Gertrude— "Trude" we always called the dear child—paid her way, I assure you. After the birth of -Baby Grace she took the entire management of the household upon her young should ers, and though we never kept a servant my wife scarcely know what it was to have a care in the world. So we went on for a couple of years as happy as birds in a tient, making much of the blessings, we had, thinking little or nothing of our privations. Alas, 1 never dreamed that the lirst reverse would come to us through me. Yet, was I to he blamed? Ever a hard worker, one particu larly hot summer 1 had double duty to perform at the hank, and I over tasked my ability. I remember falling with a dull crash beneath my desk one day, and it w that I lay at home in my own bed, carefully tended by Annie and Trude. 1 had been stricken down with brain fever, and the doctor had said the struggle hack to health and strength would he long and serious, for my system was wholly debility by overwork. After about six week, and I had been declared out of danger, I awoke one evening, after taking a nap to find the room deep in twilight and very silent. I lay some time in a drowsy state when suddenly I was by the unmis takable sound of a sob close by me, followed by the low, earnest voice of Trude. weeks re I was conscious "Don't cry, Annie, dear," she said soothingly, "you'll wake him." "Oh, but, Trade, what are we to do ?" faltered my wife. "We shall pull through all right, dear, never, fear !" was the brave reply. "But every cent of the money is gone ! Them's a month's rent due, ami *nd of little outstanding bills. Besides, the doctor won't be coming much longer, and then, of course, there'll lie his bill !" Heaven help me! her word al most killed me ! But even then little Trude was equal to the occasion. "We must make some money, Annie," site said firmly. "How in despair. "It is the height of the blackberry season, and the fruit is unusually fine* 1 shall go out at 5 o'clock to morrow morning, pick several quarts and sell every one of them at the hotels before noon. I shall do the same as long as the berries last ; you will then see whether wo can make a little money or not !" I could have arisen and fallen at her feet in worship of her heroism ; but poor Annie took life more ser iously ; she seemed proof against Trade's hopefulness. "Oh, that could never succeed," she sighed. "Well; I'm going to try, anyway!" was the undaunted rejoinder. After a pause Annie said, sudden b a desperate strait ; why couldn't you write to Gerald Dayton and ask him to lend us some money ?" "Annie !" "Well, he was in love with you before mother died ; he is very rich, and I'm positive you would have been his wife to day if you had let him ask you ; so why-" "Oh, hush! liush!" Gertrude cried "Not a word more ofthat ! Let me have my own way. Believe me, I shall succeed." Almut 10 o'clock on tin* following morning Annie came to me, all dressed up in her best, and, in a nervous way, asked me if I could spare lier for a couple of houes to go into the village with Trade. I knew in an instant the black berries had picked and that the dear girls were going together to try their fortune. Rather than distress Annie by let ting lier know that I had overheard their conversation of the preceding evening, I assured her that I was perfectly comfortable and urged her going. "Trude, we : As they went down the garden pith I crept to the window and looked after them. I Through the scalding tears that j gathered before fny eyes like lilm 1 j saw Trude with a large basket upon ^ each arm, while my poor little* wife followed her with the baby in her God only knows what 1 suffered during those two hours. I had fallen into a light sloe]) from j sheer misery and exhaustion when I was awakened by the entrance of Her face was as radient as tin an gel's. She put the baby down he- | side me and kissed me as though she had not seen me for ten years. "Oh, what do y cried. "Who do you suppose* is in the parlor with Trude ?" I made a very shrewd guess. "Gerald Dayton," I said. "Yes !" exclaimed Annie, "Trude went to town to sell some black ber ries, and at the very lirst hotel we came to, who should see her hut Mr. Dayton, lb* took lier to task then and there for not letting him know where she had gone to after mother died, and I'm sure before he leaves this house he'll ask her to marry him !" Scarcely were the words out of her mouth when dear little Trude enter ed the room, looking likeu blush rose in full bloom, and followed by Mr. Gerald Dayton. I had seen the young gentleman two years before, when 1 was court ing my Annie, and, though I knew him to he a decided "swell" I always thought him an exceedingly fine fellow. After the lirst salutations were over Trude said to me : "Mr. Dayton doubts my assertion that I sent him my address when we moved out here. Don't you re member that winter morning that 1 gave you a note for him ?" 1 was obliged to confess that 1 did not remember the occurrence. "Ah, you little traitor!" laughed Gerald Dayton. In the meantime my wife lmd gone to the closet, brought out my winter overcoat, and produced from one of its pockets a yellow', crump led note addressed to Mr.G. Dayton. Oil, how they laughed at me then and Gerald said : t you must atone for your shameful neglect, sir, by giving me your sister-in-law as my wife. A nd as exchange is no robbery, I will give you this house and land, being both mine, together with nil the rents you have paid for it in the two years you have been here. Come, what do you say?" "It is for Trude to say," l answer ed taking her little berry-stained hands in mine. She laughed just as a bird trills, and said with a sly blush : "I'm sure I'm agreeable, and should have been two years ago, if you had—had asked me !"

An orifice about an inch in diameter is made in the cover of the well bv whiclt tile internal air is put in communication with the external. When the air pressure outside di minishes on the approach of a storm tile air in the well escapes and blows a whistle in connection with the ori fice, and in this way notice of a storm's approach is given to the in habitants. If, on tho contrary, the pressure increases, a different sound is produced by the entry of tho air into the well, and tho probability of line weather is announced.
