The color is the same as the Italian marble. It is not so dark as that in the other quarry, so that the company will now be able to fill any kind of an order. The stone takes on a beautiful polish and is of the color most commonly in use. The new find will be a great addition to the worth of the quarry.

T.ut Celia is strong minded. 1 sometimes even think mamma is a lit tle* at raid of her. She leas certainly managed us both all her life. Celia has u perfect talent for managing people. IVlion she told ns she was engaged to I l>e married to Sir Vernon Hraustotie j mamma said: "But, Celia, darling, you I hardly know him." "You never know any man unless you are actually married to him," answered Celia, who is (tossessed of an extraor dinary amount of worldly wisdom. I Then I put in my word—"1 don't like him, Celia," 1 said decidedly. "And you haven't got to marry him," replied Celia, in her most putting-down tiiauner, "so you needn't trouble about that." Mamina cried a little, and finally gave her consent, which was, after all, only a matter of form, as Celia has money of her own and ls over 21 We sat chatting over her fire the night before her marriage. "Supposing he is unkind to you, Cella," I said: "O, Celia, darling, whatever would you do if he were uukiud to you?" "Do?" answered Celia, with an air of great astonishment, "I should leave him, of course, aud come hack to you and mamma." I gasped! "You couldn't leave a man you were married to," I said. "Couldn't I?" she replied calmly "you'd see. Dot." "I'm afraid lie is rather selfish, Celia, I said presently. "All men are selfish," replied the wise Celia, "if thqy are encouraged—I shan't encourage Vernon." Then we went to bed. 1 uwoke the next morning feeling de pressed. I hated parting with my fa vorite sister, and I did not care about my future brother-in-law. I must own he seemed devoted to Celia, but he looked so rough and big beside her l j was dreadfully afraid he might bully But the wedding went off very My | her.

A friend of his had lent them a house in Scot land for their honeymoon, and Vernon was to have some spring fishing. 1 saw them off at the station. This was, I know, a dreadfully unconventional thing to do, but It was Just like Celia, aud she insisted on it. She said it would prevent people from knowing they were newly married—which was absurd, as her hat was covered with rice.

At about half past It, as I was feeling quite worn onf with excitement luid fatigue, I thought 1 would go to bed. I kissed mamma and begged lier not to worry about Celia. 1 to "I wonder what she is doing?" she said tearfully. "1 do hope they will not quarrel, Dot.'* I saUl 1 was sure they wouldn't, aa I elia had never quarreled with any body in her life. I was Just going up stairs when I heard the front door bell ring violently. "I can't see any one, Dot," mamma, called out to uie. "1 am too tired and upset to-night." "We're out, James." I said to the footman, and added reassuringly to mamma, "It will only be wliat Celia '■alls a posthumous wedding present." 1 waited a moment to see. Suddenly I heard a peremptory voice saying: "Here, Janies, take In this box; Denise Is coming on with the others in a four wheeler. Where is Miss Dot?" I simply flew across the hall. "O, Celia, darling Celia, whatever ls the matter?" 1 cried excitedly. Celia stopped to kiss mamma, who had rushed Into the hall at the sound of lier voice, then she slipped her ana through mine. "Come along Into the dining-room, dears," she said, "and I'll tell you all about it; but do order me some dinner first; I am dreadfully hungry." She spoke quite brightly, but her face was pale, and 1 don't think her tears were far off. Then she told us what she had done. As soon as I left her she arranged with Denise to get out at Peterborough and catch the next ex press back to town. Vernon had luckily never seen her. Poor mamma looked rather dazed, as though she hardly un derstood what had happened. "It serves him right, Cella," I said angrily, "but whatever will he do? *Von't he be fearfully angry?" I felt nervous, but Celia only shrugged her shoulders. "Likely he will," she replied, coolly; "but, after all, what can he do except ing swear? You see, 1 have begun aa I mean to go on, Dot, and l must await developments. I expect be will soon retch me back," she added cheerfully, "and try to hush It up. No man likes being made a fool of, but it was really more thaii 1 could stand." She yawned and raised her pretty arms above her liehd. "And now let's go to bed, Dot, Pm so awfully tired. It's useless to sit here and speculate as to what he will do; I am all right In the meantime, as I have brought my trousseau back with me." Tbe next morning Celia received a frantic telegram from Vernon, and in the afternoon he arrived. Mamma and I thought it kinder not to see him. Celia had a long Interview with him In the dining-room, after which she ran up to us and, giving us each a hasty kiss, whispered she would tell us all about It to-morrow. Then they drove off to gether, and Denise followed with the luggage. I believe they staid at a hotel for the night and caught the expreee to Scotland tbe next day. We did not eea Celia again for several weeks, and when she wrote all she told us was that Vernon was a "dear." They seem hap py now, and I sometime« think I never saw a man kinder or more attentive to his wife. Celle seems devotedly f>m l of him.
