A STRAXGE LOVER. CHAPTER V.-Continced. POLISHING THE BOUGH DIAMOND. 'Aurelia," Raid Mrs. Bevnn, "what is the meaning; of the change in that man? He was only a vulgarian at first, now he is a lieml." "I think he makes himself out to be worse than he really is," replied Au relia. She sat with her hands clasped tightly, as one holds them when they fain would hide a great agony. She was already changed. The freshness of her early womanhood was gone; a faint, perpen dicular line on her brow, between the eyes, indicated thought or carking care; her eyes had lost some of their lustre. Ten years of ordinary life would have done no more for her than the few weeks following her marriage. "I can conlide iu you, mother," Au relia went on after it pause; "you can advise, if you cannot help me. But what I tell you must be kept, as far as possible, between ourselves. "It will le difiicult to hide the truth," Mrs. Be van said." "I know it," returned Aurelia. "But much as you see, there is more behind. My husband does not love me has never loved me, not even admired me." "Aurelia! lie has told you that in i jest." "No he is in earnest. He calls me a doll; and with brutal frankness, tells me that his taste in women lies in quite an opposite direction. He even describes the sort of woman lie admires. I must leave you to surmise what more he says it will not beur repetition." "V'hy did he marry youf" "I do not know. He says he had a reason for it, but he will not say what it is; he laughs when he speaks of it. There is some horrible mystery behind it all, and I think Seth Hardman knows what it is." "And who is Seth Hardman?" "Did I not name him in my letters?" "No." "Seth Hardman is a friend of Bow ley's. Ho is more of a gentleman, but is, I think, the worse man of the two. We had only been in Paris three days when he appealed; Bowley told me that they were great friends. Hardman goes with us everywhere. He wanted to come here to-day, bat I objected." "Then he is respectful to you?" "He professes to ndmire me," said Aurelia, with a shudder; "and his con stant attention is not the least burden I have to bear. Whenever I am left alone by Bowley, Seth Hardman is sure to appear." "Have you spoken to your hus bantir "A" dozen times, and he tells me that a woman must take care of herself; if she cannot do it, no man can help her. Hardman is coming to live with us. AVe are going to a lonely house. Oh, mother, what shall I do?" She fell upon her mother's neck, weeping convulsively. Mrs. Bevan's eyes were dry. If tears had come, the angry lires that Hashed in their depths would have dried them up. "You shall not be subjected to this brutality, Aurelia," she said. "I will speak to Marsh, anil tell him that he has no right to subject you to the inso lent attention of his friends." "Say nothing to day," pleaded Au relia, "he is not in the mood to be spok en to. A little may make him burst out in one of his furious fits, when he seems to lose all control of himself. He is something terrible, then. Mother, lie has struck Hush! here he is!" Bowley Marsh was knocking at the door, and in a few minutes he came swaggering in. "I've sent the man off," he said; "and now we three will have a sociable day together. What time do you expect father-in-law in?" "Mr. Bevan generally leaves the dis pensary at Ave o'clock for a few hours," Mrs. Bevan replied. "Then, at half-past four, we will go," said Bowley Marsh. "He has not had the pleasure of see ing you yet," said Aurelia. "It is a pleasure that must keep," was the rough reply. "I do not intend to remain here later than half-past four." CHAPTER VI. AT THE WHITE HOUSE. Alone, on a dull, flat road, that ran across Hackney Marshes toward Bow, the White House stood. It was invisible to the traveler, for it was hidden by trees on every side. A mere fringe of wood, it is true, but grown thickly together, the branches laced and interlaced, and with so much ivy upon them that they formed an im penetrable screen in all seasons. It was a house of two stories, with a long frontage, half covered with jasmine and rose trees, much in need of the pruning knife. Rank weeds grew over the gravel paths up to the very door. A dark, damp, miserable place to the eve, even when the summer was at its heicht. , . ,. For more than two years a board, by the gate, had announced that the White House was to be let. The name of the agent soon disappeared, the lower half of the notice being knocked away, by some passing expert at stone throwing. There was, at the time we write of, no house within a quarter of a mile on either side, where any person desiring to become a tenant, could apply to. As a matter of foot, nobody had such a desire. Occasionally a seeker of a quiet res dence woum glanc. ot the house, and huly out again. "It looks as f a murder had been committed there.' more than one said; and they were riitht. A murder had been committed there. A mani tortured with jealousy, hud iwEfiSi wife, and fled away, leaving ner ly n looked in her room.

Ever. room was opea to them but THE room. There waa nothing ia it, that tbe servants knew of, for their friends to see; but the curiosity that was so fatal to many of Bluebeard's wives, prevailed ia tbe hearts of the guests. "I should just like to peep in," some body said. Well ! One of the servants thought the key of the dining-room would fit the lock. It did tit it; and the ghastly secret of the chamber was laid bare to the amazed and terrified spectators. The murderer was never found. Ia the few days be had secured, he disposed of tbe greater portion of his property, and got abroad, it was supposed. But whither he weut none could tell for cer tain. It was to this bouse, with its terrible legend, that Bowley Marsh brought his wife. The necessaries not the luxuries of a house had preceded them, and a deaf old woman engaged as servant. The incoming of all was so quiet that the neighbors around did not knew of it for days. Seth Hardman was of the party. Husband, wife, and this male hanger on, came down in a four-wheeled cab. Aurelia had never seen the house be fore, and its appearance was to ber a continuation of muuy gloomy fears. "I feel like one walking into a grave," she thought, as she passed through tbe doorway. Seth Hardman had handed her out of the cab, and was in close attendance upon her with the unwelcome devo tion of a persistent admirer. "It is a dull old house, Mrs. Marsh," he said; "but your presence will brighten it" "Would anything brighten such a dis mal place?" Aurelia asked. "How could Bowley choose it for a home?" "He has not seen it before." "The choice, then, was yours?" "No. We wanted a quiet place, and we took the word of the house agent." "It is a conspiracy between you," said Aurelia bitterly; "you devote your ener gies to making me miserable.'' "My dear Mrs. Marsh," pleaded Seth Hardman, "you cruelly libel vie at all events. If there is anything I could do for your happiness, 1 " "That is enough, sir," said Aurelia curtly, "I have had sufficient of that. tinwouennm i to ten you iiiui iw w distasteful to me?" What are vou two wrangling about?" called out Bowley Marsh from the doorway. "Like lovers, you are al ways quarrelling. Perhaps you are lovers, eh !" He looked from one to the other with an ugly twinkling in his eyes. Aurelia drew herself up proudly. AURELIA, BY SIGNS, INTIMATED THAT THEY WERE INTERRUPTED. "Will you tell me which is my room?" she said. "The old girl knows," replied Marsh. "Hullo there hit what's-your-name! Come here." After some bawling the woman was made to hear; anil when she became sensible of what was expected of her, she led the way to the room she had prepared for Aurelia. It was the room in which the hapless wife of the former tenant had been cruelly murdered. The furniture in it was meagre, but there was an appearance of an attempt having been made to make the best of it. A fire was burning in the grate, a clean, white curtain covered half the window, two poor prints hung upon the walls, and a cheap lace square hung over the back of an easy-chair "I've (lone my best with it, ma'am," the old woman said; and Aurelia thanked her. Left alone, she drew a chair up to the fire and sat down to think. The sun was shining brightly outside, and a broad ray cume through the window, but there was a shadow on the place that not even the orb of day could dis pel. "Why have I been brought here?" Aurelia asked herself; and she dreaded to think out an answer to the dismal question. She could hear her husband and Seth Hardman talking, as they roamed about the house. Bowley Marsh was boister ous, and more than once expressed a loud approval of the place. "We shall be able to do as we like here, Seth," Aurelia heard him say; "it is a place to make merry in. You and I will have o jolly time of it." There was nothing in this to alarm her, but Aurelia felt that her spouse had another object in selecting such a home. In Paris she had been a witness to the distate he had for solitude, or even for a limited circle about him. He had never been able to rest at home a single evening. Dinner was served about an hour after their arrival, in a room that faced north and was as chilly as a vault. There was a plain joint and a pudding, and a liberal supply of wine and spirits, Bowley Marsh drank freely, and urged his companions to do the same. Aurelia scarcely touched the wine. Seth Hard man, with a strange look of watchful ness on his face, partook of it sparingly- After the meal the two men settled down to card-nlayiug, and Aurelia was coarsely told by her husliand that she could go and look about the place. Weary and Bick at heart, she wan dered into what hud once been a garden and was now a wilderness. In ber wandering she came unon a spot overlooked by the kitchen. The window was open, and the old woman was sitting by it engaged in some rough needlework. She rose up, nnd looking hard at Au relia, beckoned to her to come nearer. The wnmiiti had a naturally hard face, hut there was kindness iitjier eyes, ana Aurelia went up to the window, "Why have they brought you ben, pretty one?" she asked. Aurelia shook -her head to Intimate that she did not know, and did not with to discuss the subject. The attendant had the quick discernment of eye so strongly marked In deaf people, and dissented with a motion of her hand. You may trust me," she said, "and If It Is to keep yu from your friends, It will be better for you to tell me who they are," Aurelia reflected for a moment, Per haps It would be better if she gave the address In Plnson's street to this woman, and motioned to her to get a pencil m4 lpw' (to ooNTmuin.) DESIGN FOR A CHAPEL A Structure Estimated to Cost About $3,500. The Visa Made for a Union Chapel, bat tt Can Eaailr be Beamncod for Any Denomination. Br B. W. ShopiwU, Arehttwt Last of this series of architectural de signs, but not least in importance, is a chapel. A community may have tine residences and every improvement and adornment that skill and taste can de- PERSPECTIVE VIEW. vise, but it is poor indeed, if it has not a place for worship. Where there is no church and not a sullicient number of communicants of any particular denomination to build and support one, a union chapel may be easily built and liberally supported bv the communicants of the various de nominations who reside in the neighbor hood. The liberality of such an organ ization is productive of much good. It is the special admiration of non-church going people, who often will attend a service where doctrinal differences are sunk in the broad essentials of Chris tianity. The plan given herewith is for a union chapel, but it may be easily rearranged for any denomination. The general di mensions of the structure are us fol lows: Front, 43 feet 3 inches; depth, 40 leet - inches; neiglit ol auditorium ceil ing, 12 feet at the sides, running up to 23 feet at the centre. Materials for ex terior: Foundations, stone; up to sills ol main winuows, clapboards; above the sills of windows and the gables and roof, shingles. Interior: All floors and trim mings, white pine; stairway, newel, rails and balusters, ash. Built as described above, the cost is about $3,500. The estimate includes a 7 TT- I0M Mi,Mlli (MM A A I J r StATIhCt ISO l ' PLAN. cellar under the whole, to be used for the furnace and the storage of fuel. The estimate does not include the cost of the heating apparatus, nor the cost of pews and platform furniture. Hard, smooth walls of considerable surface produce a disagreeable glare, therefore the plastering of a church should have a "sand finish." The pre ferred tint for the walls and ceiling is supplied by mixing color with the linal coat of plaster. The color must be well mixed or it will show streaks. When clear glass is used for the win dows, the tint of the walls and ceiling should be somewhat darker than when stained glass is used. When the building site slopes, as shown by the illustration, the rear part of the basement may be liuished at small expense for a Sunday school room. The tower may be omitted without serious loss to the exterior appearance, and the omission would effect a saving of about ifiiOO. Where the chapel will be used during the summer season only, as at the seaside, the foundations nuiy be piers or posts, nnd paper may be substituted for plaster. These changes would effect a saving of about $500, A word about church bells. It seems too bad to decry the music of the bells, which almost every man and woman of this Christian country reveres as a sacred association of childhood, but it must be admitted that the distant sound of village church bells, faintly heard, was music, of sweeter cadence than is made by the near-by clangor of city church bells. It is said that nervous invalids in cities suffer agonies from the noise of the bells. There is no scripture warrant for bells. They were established in mediioval times, and served a great purpose when the world was very ignorant. It is submitted that in this age, when all can read and tell the time of day, it is sullicient noti fication of service to place a bulletin on the front of the church, to make an nouncements from the sacred desk or to insert a card in the newspapers. THAT MONSTER PYTHON. The Btg Reptile No Longer s Terror to aBhip's Crew. Three weeks ago this paper published an account of the escape of a monster python snake which was being brought to New York from a foreign port, and the fruitless efforts of the ship's crew to coax or frighten the big reptile from his stronghold in the dark bowels of the boat. At last the dangerous monster has been captured and the budly scared sailors have returned to their work. Perhaps an account of how his snake ship was dislodged will prove interest ing. Friday a gang of 'longshoremen were put to work storing oil and merchandise on the vessel. Captain Chase was superintending them, In the forward part of the hold was a big box, six by three feet, which was in the way, and the captain started to move it. It was very dark in the hold. The box was very heavy, and the captain put his hand in to see what It contained. His hand closed on something that was oft and slippery. In an instant he real iced that lie had grasped the neck of the missing python. So great was the hock that' for a minute, like a man at an electrio battery, he could not let got A hiss and a squirm brought him to his sens i. He dropped the reptile and got out of the hold so quick that he broke three rung of the ladder In his ascent. He was hardly quicker, however, than the twenty 'longshoremen who mode a break for the ladder when they saw the captain's flight. Captain Chose did not top running until he had reached Swan AHon'sollloe. I've got him," ha gasped "the python i he's in the hold." Hwan Bon hava In tlielr employ Mr. William Kemble, who has spent many years la Afrioa aad ha the reputation among his friends of being a Urst-clase amateur neke-oharmer. Mr. Kemble denies the accomplishment, but says that mm oan nandl aay aaaka if he'll look bim square in tbe eye. He went back to the ship with the Messrs. Swan and Captain Chase. Tbe python was found stretched out in tbe bold. Fear lessly Mr. Kimble took two gunny sacks and wrapped them about the snake's bead. The reptile wriggled, but by careful manipulation Mr. Kemble made bim squirm back into the box. Then he nailed some strips of plank across the top and the python went to sleep. The big snake was viewed hy crowds as lie snoozed away the hours lust even ing in his cage on the Monrovia's deck. "I have not got my appetite back yet." said Captain Chase to a reorter, '"When I grabbed that thing by the neck I felt simply awful, I was sick at my stomach, and shook at the knees for an hour after. Ain't he a beauty?" he aid, looking at the snake with a sickly smile. "I ought to be proud of him, hadn t I? Well I ain't If you know anybody that wants to buy a snake at bed rock prices, send him to me, and I'll part witb this pet in a big hurry." FUN ON THE SIDE.

A reporter called on Mr. Fischer to day and found him in unusually good spirits. "Yes sir, it is a fact," said he in reply to a question, "I am $30,000 richer than I was a week ago, and have re ceived my money. Last month I sent a letter addressed to the New Orleans National Bank, in which I enclosed $3 requesting them to send me a one-tenth ticket in the July drawing. I never joined any clubs as is usual.
