Morning Journal. r Harriet Golder is a charming, viva cious little English girl. Her a ge is just seventeen. She was Imn in the village ot Whitney, England, and lived there until she was about fifteen .years of age. Then her parents secured her a position in the dressmaking establishment con ducted by Mrs. Robinson, in the village of Frodingliam abort fifteen miles from Whitney. Once a week the young girl would pay a visit to her parents in Whitney. She generally talked the tflstance, as no conveyance was handy. It was during one of these journeys that she became acquainted with William Gerdely, a handsome young farmer,, who lived in the village of Holton, about midway be tween Whitney and Frodingham. He generally accompanied her on her jour neys, and as be became better acquainted with her he fell in love with her. Ap parently she liked him. Six monthsago Harriet's parents both died within a week. After the burial of her parenta Mrs. Robinson offered her a permanent .4ome with her. This kind offer she ac cepted. The only dIrwback to her som plete happiness was the fact that she could po more meet Gerdely, whom she had crie . to care a great deal for. Finally he pebed entirely from her mnind. She would have lived in her new position, lt foor t)B tte$np of Will liam R6binson, the son of the lady whom she was working for. He said he loved her and wanted to die for her. .Je ap peared to fbel deeply hurt because she would not give him a chance to die for her. iis mother took sides with him and between them both the poor irl finallyconenuted to marry young R son.

It was a year since they parted. .Whe she told him of her marriage she turhed pale. Then he fell on his knees and implored her to fl with him. A sudden impulse caused the girl to acsecede to his request. They went to Liverpool. They were just in time to secure pamage on the steamship Britannic. By means of detectives her husband learned that she had led to New York. He at once tel e to &iperltend ent Jackson, of Castle Garden, asking him to detain the girl on her aurmvatsa retmrn her to England.

Here is a singular instance of the work ing of that subtle, fine sixth sense, which is apt to affect women more than men, and which is so mysterious in character that we often incline to deny its exist ence at all. A lady sat sewing quietly-in her sitting room, anti in an inner cham ber the nurse had just put the baby to sleep and laid her in her besinette. As the nurse came out of the chamber she said to her mistress: "The little thing is asleep for three hours, ma'm, I'll warrant." The nurse went down stairs, and for about a minute the mother sewed on. Suddenly a desire seized her to go and take the sleeping child from its crib. "What nonsense!" she said p. herself. "Baby is sound asleep. Nurse just put her down, I shall not go." Instantly, however, some power stron ger even than the last, urged the mother to go to her baby; and after a moment, she rose, half vexed with herself, and went to her chamber. The baby was asleep in her little bed, safely tucked in with soft white and pink blankets. One small hand was thrown above the little brown head. It was half open, the ex quisite fingers slightly curved, and the panlm as rosy as the depths of a lovely shell. "My babyl'whispmed the mother, ad orin the little sleeper as mothers will. "My own little baby!" She bent over suddenly, a third time impelled by that mysterious force which was controlling her, and for no apparent reason took the sleeping baby in her arms and went swiftly into the other room. She had scarcely crossed the threshold when a startling sound caused her to look back. Through a sling cloud of thick gray dust, she saw that the ceil in above the baby's cradle had allen. burying the hbP of rosy blankets and lying hvist ofal ppo that spot wheae but for her mystic warning, her little child would even now be lying. wouIuUD ADOVT 3ss WRALTr .

A great many yers ago a prisoner of $ state, who was allowed to cheer the soli a tude of his dungeon by playing on his e flute, discovered after awhile that every time he played a great numbers of spi e ders gaihered abort hiuh. Since then e the liking of spidets for music has been proved. I myself had cften wished to N play for a spider audience, but I was not s well enough acquainted with any musi e cal instrument to toax a tune out of it. A scientifie gentleman of Europe gave gave rie a valuable hint by an elperi nient of his own. He eeda tuningfbrk. Now I can play a. taninglork as well as anybody. I procured a tuningfork, and then sought out a spider. I found a handsome, brand-new web. and. though I did not see Mistress Epeira, I knew she must he at honie. Epeira diadema is her full name, though most persons call her a garden spider. It is she who r makes those beautiftul, wheel-like webs which festoon" the rosebushes and trees. I As I have raid, Mme. Spider was not - visible. I anew, however, Fhe must be in her gossamer parlor, which is attach-. ed to her web. s Here was a good chance to try tuning s fork music. I rapped the fork on a stone and in a momneat a soft, melodious ham, filled the air. I touched one of the e spokes of the web wit, the fork. On the instant, madame flew out of her par r lor in great" haste, hesitated a u.oment at the out edge of the web, and then in stead of going straight to the tuning-fork ran to the very centre of the'web. When thexe, she quickly caught hold tof each of the spokes oneafter the other, t and gave it a little tog, as a boy does his fishing line to see if a fish s hooked. Each was passed by until she came to - the spoke upon which the humming-fork r rested. There she stopped, and it was easy to see she was excited. She gave the whole web a shake; thentuedat s the spoke again. "Hut~.-am-m, still s ang the fork, rather faintly now, how Seve. e Madame was satified. Her mind was made up. Down she darted and caught Sthe end of the fork ib4leawet·'i-l* Stred to bite into the hard metal, and at the same time she spun a web of silk around the. two prongs, which by this L time had ceased vibrating. I pulled the fork away, and Mme. e Epeira retired in disappointment to the centre of the web. But.if she was disap t pointed, so was I, for I was satisfied that r it was not the music of the fork that bad r attracted her. Unfortunately. it was al B together too prolable that she mistook i the bum of the fork for the buz of a fly -a sort of music no doubt very sweet to her. Time after time I repeated the experi mentwith the fork,touohigin turn each B spoke of the web, and each time Mime. Spider was deluded into trying to cap ture the tuning-fork. It wat odd that she did not learn wisdom by repeated disappointment. ..Upee T or Thsbt.

Youth ' Cominpaion. Ayearser twoago an old lady lied in an inland town of New York, whase for tune and family gave her a high social position, but who bore among her neigh bors the odd sobriquet of "Grindstone," because, as they explained, "All the tern pers and tongues of the town were sharp ened by coming near her." In her youth poor (rindstone had been a beautiful, warm-hearted girl. But she had a keen eye for a~y ridicu lous trait in others, and a scathing, mer ciless wit in exposing it. the also had a lpeculiar talent which is attributed to Theodore Hook, of ex temporizing verses, each of which sasir. ized soume person present. At every party she was called on for such a song, which was received with loud applause, and laughter. But each verse of that cost her a friend. The girl (like hundreds of other girls who are making the same fatal error) was not ill-natured, and did not mean to hurt anybody by her cruel jests. She only craved admiration, and mistook the amusement she caused for homage to herself. It is probable that ise died not knowing, why, .when her fqrnier school-mates were happy wives and 'l46there, she had been left alone to a bare, titter old age, with neither friend nor lover. In every social circle there may- e found some young girl-usually bright and clever-who asuumes superority to the young people about her, and delights in "taklng off" their peculiarities and weaknesses. In places of sumnler resort, where. co•nmmon sense would suggest that people go to be friendly and happy together for a brief month or two, there is a.wavs a family or group who hold themselves aloof fromnt other people qye their com panions with ill-naturedamusemaent, and apparently ftnd their highest enjoyment in satirizing them. These unfortunate wits never are con scious that they themselves art the losers and the only -real victims of Ibefr poison ed arrows. All happy, genial enjoyment goes by without warming them. They meet men and women with noble natures high aims and beautifIl lives, whoconld give them upitei e.vip ant comfort through life. but they see only their r,.r noses, or country mannes, or 'i iculous guWnR, and gain f}ta them only a moment of inane laughter.
