"Yes, for my crimps, you know, they are all out of curl and so tumbled thait I can't ge down stairs looking so. "But could thee not comb them out? I could lend thee a comb to comb them out." "I could, of coulrs, but you have no idea what a fright I am witlhout my crimps. Robert never saw nme with my hair straight, and I know he would hate to have his mother see me unless I was looking my very, very best. Of course, I have another bang in my trunk. Edith made this frank confession with a wild instinct that it would he best for be made afterward, though she would! not yet acknowledge know the posibility ofat oonoession, would strike them in the light of unexpected improvement, "but my trunk hasn't come; so if you could lend me a pencil!" "I-I am afraid.I have no slate pen cil," faltered Esther. :"Well, a pipe would do; haven't von a pipe handle? Just a common white pipe, such as the children have for soap bubbles, you know." "If thee will wait a moment I will - see," said the discreet Esther. Edith in the meantime had made her way back to her own room and waited in suspense, while Esther went slowly downstairs, questioning her conscience, and yet very loth to disappoint the witch who was depending upon her. She had made up her mind to be very I tolerant of the worldliness of Robert's fiancee, but to be too suddenly called upon to aid and abet her in it was al most more than could reasonably be ex pected of her, even by Robert. And yet it would be so unfortunate to begin the visit with a family jar. She had a ter rible consciousness that there was a pipe in the house; Richard, her little inephew, had had it.for soap bubbles only tlJ T white lie, and lNrmit herself to be un able to find it was something more ter rible to Estler's conscience than even nenivrg rt a carl. As it happened, however, ale really could not find it. Here was certainly sufficient excuse for going baot empty-handed; and yet, and yet-when she came to the foot of the er, instead of going up, went into ta itchen. "'Iidget, could thee spare a moment to 6 amco to the coner grocery sad mW ae a pipe ooaizmon white clay piper" "A pipe is it?" saed the wondering Bridget. " es,Bridget, a pipe; a pipe for-for blowing soap bubbles," ,stammered Es ther; "thee knows, Bridget, pipe such as Riebard had for his plaý_. i "Yes, I know," said Bndget, wiping her hands on her apron, and then re-i moving the apron. "And it it sosp babbles they do be wanting to blow a alreadyt Faith, I'll send 'em up a plet' for dinner"' "Edith has won her first battle," Mrs. Marvin wrote to her husband that even ing, "and without a wound or a scar on either side. I only wish you had been here with your detective camera to get an instantaneous photograph of i the two girls when Edith opened the door and Esther handed her the clayt pipe." As Edith had confidently expected, it was the first of a long series of victories over Robert's relations which she had gined, not by tramplinhg down their prejudices under the high heels of .her French slippers, bht by quietly teaching them t like her just as she wmas. She had an infinite amount of the gracious tact which comes with a certain kind of aristocratic, highbred worldliness, and she was at heart a most winningly af fectionate and true-hearted girl. Had shqbeen merely a wordling the French bpers would not have fodght for her o.econquered her tenemies1 but Robert's relations made the surprising discovery a rpally sweet-hearted creature re riia sweet even on high heels; and be .e a week was over Edith was the ac irwledged ruler of the entire house - ,d. I Jt was even decided in family conclave t it would do to give her what, in the yrdly world, would be known as a "re eption." Tlhy had no idea of doing this in looking forward to hee visit. It was felt that it would be concessiont enough for them to consent to receive as a visitor into the bosomn of their own family the young woman who had disap poimts their fondest hopes for the ee curity of Robert's future. To have their friends to meet her, to set her in i the full blaze of her effrontery of long ; silk gown, andl perhaps even of dis-I mends, would be to advertise their shiname, the disgrace of the entire family, in a way not to be contemplated for aI moment. They would endure, but they 0 would not pblish to the world the fact F of what they "sere callel upon to en dure. And yet-and yet . t*he end of a fort night preparations wereon hand for all their friends to come and see this won derful Edith, with full hkowledge on . 'he part of the family that Zhith would andoubtedly surpass all her Irevious ef forts on this occasion in the art of de- tI coration. Edithf however, h er own ml plans. On the evening fore the : solemn entertainment, she pn p stairs, took of all her nn her ha down feetly oothand tright over her little ear dn it very plainly behind, and, drew i ~ ,J~aythe e- albsolutely guiltless of ornamentation of any kind. A tiny s.urf of white illusion ' wa.s crossedl over her breast, and her I contempnlated toilet was completto. Nev i ertheless, site surveyed Iherself in the Sglass wVith evident di-,satisfaitiiin. "I )ear me, maanima, it isn't half so had as I thought it would le. I neant 1 1I to look like a fright, and after all it's I y' rattherefll*'tive. If I were dressed for 1 Y private theatricals I should think myself to inmnse. )Ih, dear ! suppose they i Is shoul like e' biest this way aftt'.r all " e, It was a sorrowful blow to h, r hopes (on this trlmll card to find herself still a exce.edingly pretty. She was purfe,.tly Tr conscIinults if a c.rt'ilil piqua!nt charm in i novel apls'aralnce that might undo her 1 after all. Still sh ewould run the risk. t She was a 1 erfe"t little actress. If any- 1 thing I ad been needeld to effect Robert's conpl,h.te subjugation after his first %iision of helr loveliness at the Harvard a assembluhits it wais supplied when he saw 1 her the week after in some private the Iatrieals. She could appear to be a - Quakeress just as eflfectively as she could a act her more lnatural self ill a very differ eut world, and it was s ith fae ( and aC cent and miannelr perfectly adapted to, her new toilet that she quietly entered i 1 the parlo r again after her escapade up stairs, and said demurely to Robert's m aothe.r: "achell, would thee like me to wear e this gown to marrow evelnilng for thy 1 friends ?' There was a sualued uwhistle of de light from the reconstructed RolKrrt in the c, rner. lunt Robert's mother gave a no sign. "Thee must wear just what thee 1 t pleases. Edith. If it pleaszes thee better 1 (to wea:r thy gown of red silk-" a "And what does Samuel think ?". Edith asked, passing on to stand before 1 HR,lbert's father. "1 almuel thinks," said the old gentle- 1 man slyly, "that thee had better ask Robert." < "Oh,, no Papa Samuel, that would not el any test at all; thee knows perfectly t I well that Rolbert likes me in anything," u said Robert's fiancee, demurely. J "And so do I like thee in anything," Ssaid Papa Samuel, with unexpected gal lantry. "But 1 think I like thee best, a Editih, in red. Thee knows we Quakers like to follow the way that is mo nt I simple and natural, and I think red is c the most iu'tural for thee. I think thee must have been born in that red silk of ' thine. Thee is very sweet to me, my f e child, in this Quaker" grey; but we I Quakers, thee knows, do not approve of i Y theatricals, and I think to-night thee ii is trying to play a part. Thee acts it i very prettily, Edith, but I advise thee to a go back to nature and thy red gowns." So the battle was won, and the lilr ai proved that Edith was qui1ifeibtocon- I quer, not only Rotlrfs relations, but g - Robert's relatioq' friends. When, a e year later, ie came back to them again , .!bridehere was but one thing left for 3 nqner. Robert had pre Spred her for a Iossible visit from elder ly friends lwho might think it their .duty i, to remonstrate with hiam, or with him, I ti on this very worldly marriage, and it pl was, in truth, hardly a month before he i e ran up stairs one afternoon as she was eo dresing, with the announcement that is the probable counselors were taking off a1 their overcoats in the hall. She hesitated a moment, but her hes- dl itation rose merely from a moment's consideration of whether she had any al othergoew, in her wardrobe that would Iu emphasize tnore distinctly her intention fa to adhere to her own traditions. She sat decided that the long tra:ing skirt of fi pale green cashmere, with its border of b pale plush and its sash of watered silk, to was sufficiently worldly when one took at into consideration the jewel that spar- tr Skled in the laces at her throat, the dainty w lace-edged handkerchief, and the per-i f fectly groomed little curls over her white ha forehead. She paused only to slip on w one more bangle over her round wrist. ri and then, kissing her husband, floated ft down stairs. ru Robert never knew exactly what she pr said or did to the ohi gentlemen in the el parlor. He hung over thej lbanisters andi i caught the echoes of her silvery little m laughs, and saw the maid carry tea into of into the parlor, and at 'the end of an Iti hour descended the stairs himself, as m the old gentlem.n emnerged from the le doorway, determined to stand by Edith tb S of ha ,' 'a at lil do to the last, i she hlappened to have had a hard time. He knew that some re; fa I monstrance would hie quietly dealt out I hi to himself, even during the brief vesti-I bulae episode of farewell; but to his pa astonishment, as he stepoed forward to 'b help the old gentlemen ith their over. pi coats, the one who was evidently spokes man for thie party gr.sped his hand and am said heartily: "Friend Robert, thee has Ti married well." th titill another year later and there lay he on Edith's arm a little Edith, with love- lit ly eyes and very remarkable, highly em bridered clothes. ye "Do you think, Esther," said the wi young mother, anxiously, "that she is so going to have curly hairt" J "Yes," said E:sther, with a smile that was grimly pleasant and yet jpleasantly igr.m, "I think she will have curly hair. Iknow thee would find a way to cul it, though it he as straight as-as a pipe - stem," and Aunt. Esther bent over to kiss the child. "And you're glad it curls, Esther, lo know you are," insisted the b mammau. "'Yes, Edith, I am glad it earls.

'r . 1 Man Takes Phosphorus Daily for Years and is a Total Wreck Now. o SAN FIRAN('sCO. C,.--John Clayton, t now in the City and County Hospital 's here, is of particular interest both to ,r imedical men and the world at large as If the victim of a rather new "habit." He :v presents the first instance in inctlied " science as known out here' of a "ph,s s phorus habit," and he ha:s I come as 11 compllete a slavo to this substance,, v which he takes in the form of pills, as ii any morphine fiend is to his habit. The ,r result is that lie has suffered tortures . from blood poisoning, and his lower jaw v- bone has decaved so Iball that he has s had to have it taken ont. st When he applied to the hospital for d I admission two weeks ago it was found w that he was suffering from necrosis, or e- decay, of the lower maxillary, and from a a general breaking up of his nervous id system. His jaws were swollen and his r- mouth so diatented that his facial ap e- pearance was repulsive. His face had a peiculiar ashen rallor, different from d that usually produced by illness. The gunms were so contracted that portions (sIof the jaw were exposed. 'Pus had caused 1,lo d poisoning, and this pro ir duced such intense pain that he had y been taking daily half a grain of mor lhia. Clayton said that while serving -as hospital steward of his regiment in n: the army fourteen years ago lie had 'e seen phosphorus given to sick soldiers as a nerve stimulant. Afterward, when li: he felt some symptoms of nervous de r bility, lie began taking phosphorus pills. It seemed to put new strength and en o ergy into his nervous system, and so he *e kept it up for several months. When She ceased the practice he felt the former - symptoms returning, and so took up the kl phosiorous again. He found that lie could not stop its use without his nerves i giving way; and for years lie has used Y the drug unremittingly, always carrying with him his case of plills. For the last year he has taken daily one-tenth of a grain. Physicians considcr one-hun - dredth part of a grain a regular dose, I and even then they carefully watch its I s effect. ' he amount that Clayton has t lately been taking daily would kilU I s ordinary man. e When he applied to the luspital the of physicians told him thatalis only hope I y for life was in the.inToval of the jaw e bone. This was,'one, and the patient f is now getting on fairly well, though it t 0 is doubtful if he can live. He is fed 1 ,t upon hltid food, and a good deal of o stilllant of various kinds is given him, Aiut he constantly begs for phosphorus, rand craves it so much that frequent hy podermic injections of morphine are given to keep him quiet. A Ladle' Bicycle Club. A ladies' bicycle club has been'forined in this city, and althongh the organiza tion is but a week old, it already com prises thirty active members. It is |expected that the organization of this club will do much toward bring ting the ladies' bicycle into as general use as the tricycle. "The lumbering tricycle has had its t day," said the President of the club to I a reporter. "The new bicycle answers all requirements for ladies, and all prej- f udice against it disasnpars at once, even f faom its most radical opponents, the in- u stant they see it controlled by a grace- s ful rider. Is is difficult for a woman to I be graceful on a tricycle. On a bicycle, too, only the toe and heel are exposed, t and the embarrassing awkardnesa of the , tricycle is overcome. The riding jackot will be a tight-fitting body or Norfolk, full skirt, walking length, and riding hat and gloves. The ladies of the club will not appear on the streets except in riding costumes, and with permission of their teacher, and will not ride in pa rade. The club will be kept strictly private and first-class. Ladies will be elected to membership only when pro posed by members, and then by unani mona vote. Gentlemen will be admitted I 1only as honorary members. Some of c the members of the club have already mastered the bicvole and others are learning. They are enthusiastic over l the superior pleasures and advantages n of the bicycle as compared with the tri cycle. cI Having Her Ears Plerem& "An epoch in a girlPs lifej when she has her ears pierced for thelrst pair of earrings," remarked a jeweler with a family. "I'm the father of a family my- re self and I know. The first question al- P ways is how to get the holes pnnched. si "The elder sister volunteers to under- n take it, and the entire family gathers to tl witness the operation.

"At last a happy thought strikes the father and he calls upon a jeweler with Shis daughter. "'I would like to get my daughter a pair of solitaire' he says to the clerk, 'but unfortunately her ears are not pierced.' "The clerk smiles, stands behind her, and pinches each little ear till itis white. Then he' runs a sharp steel needle through both lobes and wipes off the half drop of blood with a piece of mus lin.

The Sultan of Morocco is not only disposed not to refer the controverted question of authority to o arbitration, but the evidences are that he i is inclined to astert his authority by ous taining his views in a forcible way. t, This, it is said at the State Department, tl is most deeply regretted, because our government has nothing more formidable with which to assail the sultan than the missives of the State Department; and if diplomatic correspondence shoeld fail to awe the sultan into accepting thie views of the State Department it has, itis said, no reason to hope for any moral support from the navy. The correspondence. however, will continue, with the hope that Consul General Lewis may subjugate the sultan by ipeaceful methods. A TRAIN WRECKED.
