" This style of conversation proved so agreeable to both parties concerned, that it would doubtless have been in definitely prolonged, but Adolphus finally moved the wheels, and disclosed to the view of the amiable prisoner the crushed remains of her new heliotrope hat! Then, indeed, came a change o'er her mobile face; the features sharpened, a stony glare fiilod her liquid eyes, there was a perceptible stiffening of the whole frame, and the «traightest, sliffest, tallest uprising that I ever beheld in my life. When she had finally reached her highest possibility, she inquired in a voice not loud, but as clear and cold as cut glass: "Will you he kind enough to tell me, Mr. Radcllfte, what that ob ject isP" "I am sure I don't know," said he, with one puzzled look at her changed aspect, and another at the object indi cated, going a step nearer as the truth flashed upon him, but unfortmu*tqiy oil ludlcm» -ildd, ga of mal him she lead shall on had and him this ness, just "Why, Arie," ho shouted between peals of laughter, "it's—it's your new hat."

I)o you suppose I would have risked that hat if I had known you were experimenting? Oh, yes! it may be a laughing matter to you, very amusing, doubtless, but are you aware that that hat came from Paris; not only that, but it was made to order to match my suit, and not till this very morning did I receive it?'' Long before she had finished Adol phus was feeling remarkably limp. "But Arie —but, my dear," he ex postulated, "you know it was all an ac cident; don't you think you are a little unreasonable?

But not Are thusa, for there were tears in her eyes, and my observation has taught me that those tears must fall before the temper subsides.

Campbell, of tho Second Michigan Cavalry, presented me with tho black horse called Kienzl, since made historical from having been rid den by me in many battles, conspicu ously in the ride from Winchester to Cedar Creek, which has been celebrat ed in the poem by T. Buchanan Head. This horse was of Morgan stock, and then about three years old. He was jet black, excepting three whlto feet, sixteen hands high and strongly built, with great powers of endurance. He was so active that he could cover with ease five miles an hour at his natural walking gnlt, The gelding had been ridden seldom; in fact, Campbell had been unaccustomed to riding till the war broke out, and, I think, felt some disinclination to mount the fiery eolt. Campbell had an affection for him, however, that never waned, and would often come to my head quarters to seo his favorite, the eolt being cared for there by the regimental furrier, tin old man named John Ashley, who had taken him in charge when leaving Michigan, and had been bis groom over since. Neoing that I liked the horse—1 had ridden him on several occasions—Campbell presented him to me on one of these visits, and from that time till tho closo of tho war I rode him almost eontln sly in ovory campaign and battle In which I took part, without once find ing him overcome by fatigue, though ■in many occasions his strength was severely tested by long marches and short rations. 1 never observed in him any vicious habit; a nervousness and restlessness and switching of the tail, when every thing about him was in repose, being the only Indication that lie might be untrustworthy.

Concerning Leap Years. The following explains why tho year 1900 will not ho counted among leap years: The year is flfi.i days, fi hours and 49 minutes long; 11 minutes aro taken every year to make tho days long, and every fourth year we have atl extra day. I'll is was Julius Ctcsar's arrange ment. Where do these 11 min utes come from? They come from the future and are paid by omitting leap year every 100 years. But if leap year is omitted regularly every 100th year, in tho course of 400 years it Is found that the 11 minutes taken each year will not only have been paid back, but that a whole day will have been given up. So Pope Gregory XIII. who im proved on Caesar's calendar in 1582, decreed that èvery centurial year di visible by four should be a leap year after all. So we borrow 11 minutes each year, more than paying our bor rowings back by omitting three leap years in three centurial years and square matters by having a leap year in the fourth centurial year. Pope Gregory's arrangement Is so exact and tho borrowing and paying back bal ance so close that we borrow more than we pay buck to the extent of only one day in 3,80fi years. — Cleveland Leader. .

It wee presented to Colonel Killers, and is a portrait of Hon. Mre. Aldworth, the heroine of this legend. She U said to havo received, about tho year 1735, the first and second dogreos of Free* masonry in Lodgo No. 44, Donoruite, Ireland. Tho cireumstancos of this initiation were first published in Cork In 1807, and it was claimed that they were substantiated by nn eye-witness to tho ceremony. Subsequently they appeared in a memoir published by ,Spencer, tho celebrated Masonio bishop, In London. Mrs. Aldworth, nee Elizabeth St. Leger, was the youngest child and only daughter of the first Viscount Doneraile, of Ireland. The lodge in which she was initiated was an aristo cratic lodge, consisting principally of the gentry and most respectable and wealthy inhabitants of tho country around llonerailo. The communica tions were usually held in tho town, but during tho mastership of Lord Doneraile, brother of Mrs. Aldworth, the moetings were held at Donerailo House, his residence. Spencer relates this story of the af fair: It happened on this particular occasion that tho lodge was hold in a room separated from another by stud and brick-work. The young lady be ing giddy and thoughtloss, and, de termined to gratify her curiosity, made arrangements accordingly. With a pair of scissors, as she herself relat ed to tho mother of our informant, she removed a portion of a brick from tho wall and placed herself so as to com mand a full view of every thing which occurred in the next room. She then witnessed the first two degreos in masonry, which was the extent of the proceedings of the lodgo that night. Becoming a waro from what she heard that the brethren were about to sep arate, she felt alive to the awkward ness and danger of her situation, and began to consider how sho could retire without observation. She became nervous and agitated, and nearly fainted, but so far recovered horoolf as to be fully aware of the necessity of withdrawing as quickly as possible. Being in the dark, sho stumbled and overthrew something, a chair or some ornamental piece of furniture. Tho crash was loud, and the tyler, who was in the lobby or landing, on which opened the doors both of the lodgo room and that where the young lady was, gave tho alarm, burst open the door and, with a light in one hand and a sword in tho other, appeared to tho terrified and fainting lady. He was soon joined by the members. Her lifo would havo fallen a sacrifice to what was then esteemed her crime. The first care of Lord Donerailo was to resuscitate tho unfortunato lady without alarming the house, anil en deavor to learn from her an *rplana tion of what had occurred. Having dono tills, many of the members being furious at the transaction, she was placed tinder guard of tho tyler, and a member in the room where she was found. The members reassombled and deliberated as to what was to ha dono. For over two hours she could hear the angry discussion and her death deliberately proposed and sec onded. At length the good sense of the majority succeeded in calming in some measure the angry and irritated feelings of the members. It was re solved to give her the option of sub mitting to the Masonic ordeal to tho extent she had witnessed (Foilow craft), and if sho refused, the brethren were again to consult. Miss St. Leger, exhausted and terrified by the stormi ness of tho debato, gladly and unhesi tatingly accepted tho oiler and »as initiated.
