The sad death of tho eldest daughter of Secretary Bay akd bears with it a lesson of importance to the young people of this generation. The testimony of an eminent Washington physician is that her death was In a measure attributable to the exactions of society. Miss Bavaijd was fond of horseback exercise, and her father encour aged the fondness for out-door amusements. As long as she was left to the enjoyment of such pleasures her health was good and her constitution robust. Bui when her dis tinguished father was called to the fust place in the cabinet, it brought respon sibility to the eldest daughter. An invalid mother and sister had left to Miss Katk Bayahd the duty of performing all the ex actions which modern society requires of the lady of the house. The tax upon the stivntrth of ladies who are required to ful fill all these duties is too great, and, as Dr. Foi»« says, very lew can stand the strain. Balls at night, receptions in the day, the routine of calls and oilier requirements of social life are a continuous tax on the phys ical strength, and must of necessity be debilitating. So multitudinous and onerous are the exacitions of society these days that the society woman who docs not succumb to them must have a rugged constitution indeed. This Is a rapid age, and society is leading In the rush. Social life Is not what It was a generation or two ago. And more the pity for it. It may be a paradoxical sort of way of expressing It, but the fact Is society is losing Its sociability. Compare, for Illustration, the social enter tainments of to-day with those of a quarter of a century ago, or the present style of fashionable calling with the old-fashioned style of our grand mothers, who, when they called to see a neighbor, took their knitting along and spent the day. The results of the two modes are apparent. Our grandmothers matured into perfect womanhood and lived out their three score and ten years. It is "*o»ufcioual If the modern society woman does not go down to a premature grave, or if her days be lengthened she goes through life a confirmed invalid. There is no reason why the enjoyments of the young people should be curtailed, bat there are reasons why the exactions of society should be brought within the limit of the laws which Nature has established. The proverb that the hedge-breaker shall be bitten by a ser pent is as true to-day as it was in the days of Solomox. We are hedged around with natural laws which admit of no violation without a corresponding penalty. Parents are neglectful of their duty when they fail to impress this important truth upon the young generation just entering society. THE GREAT CHURCH PROBLEM. In addition to the Beeciier and Tai. mage sermons and a most entertaining dis course by Rev. Clay MacCaui/t on the drama, the Globe's pulpit this morning contains an account of a novel, yet most interesting, meeting at Plymouth church in this city last evening. It sounds like a libel on primitive Christianity to say that the Christian church of to-day is engaged in a struggle to interest poor people in its work. And yet that is what it is doing. Somehow or other the church lias drifted away from its primitive conditions when the son of an humble car penter, accompanied by a dozen of still more humble liohenuen picked up along the ■bom of Galilee, established a system of religion, the fundamental principle of which was that its gospel was to be without money and without price. It does seem strange that a church, which was estab lished by the laboring classes of Judea, should have so fur drifted from its ancient moorings that to-day it is the means of drawing, the social lines whereby the woikinirir.au is excluded from its walls, and it has become the sanctuary for those who wear line linen and fare sumptuously every day. In the olden time JiAZAki was a typical Christian, while Dives was the infidel. Now it is Dives who rests In Abraham's bosom, while Lazakus has to cool his parched tongue as best he can. This may be too morbid a view to take of the perversion which the Christian church has suffered. yet that it is partially true is testified to by the earnest men and women who are seeking to get Christianity back to first principles. Dr. D.vx.v, the pastor of Ply mouth church in this city, who neems to be Inspired with the zeal of the early apostles hit upon the expedient of bringing the poorer classes of the commun ity and the wealthier church members into personal contact, with a view of coming to an understanding whereby the barriers which now exist may be broken down, the caste* lines obliteml and tho gospel be made as much the property of one as the other. The result of this experiment is detailed in the Globe's report of the Plymouth meeting last night There- is a great deal in what was said in that meetlne which is well worth the study and consid eration of churchman and agnostic alike. The whole story Is told in a single sentence. The trouble lies in the failure of the church people to observe tho golden rule. They have not done unto others as they would have had others do unto them if placed in like circumstances. The man who Is down in the world wants to hear the word of kindness and to feel the touch of sympathy. He wants to feel that his fel low-man is his brother. If there Isn't much religion in humanity there ought to be a good deal of humanity in religion. A bas ket full of bread and meat b a better gos pel to a hungry man than all the theology that was over constructed. The religion of the old prophet, which protracted the cruse of oil and the handful of meal for the widow's benefit during the extended famine, is worth more to humanity than all the church towers and minarets that ever graced Christendom. That religion which puts $100,000 in a church edifice, while men and women and children are dy ing of want and starvation within sound of the church bells, is hollow mockery of the religion which Cuiust established. When congregations pay pastors ' $10,000 a year for dressing up old sermons while bare footed boys and girls are sweeping the snow from the church doors for a shilling a day, it is not to be expected that the common people will become enthused over such a religious system. They do not want to join such congregations. They prefer to do as the multitude at Jerusalem did. go out upon the mountain side and listen to the earnest sym pathetic words of the preacher who remem bered their physical needs as well as the spiritual, and allowed none to go away hungry. It the Christian church expects to make a conquest of the world, it will only be done by going back to the simpler and more practical methods of apostolic times. Tho problem with the Christian world to-day is not so much of how to get the common people into the church as it is how to get the church down into the by ways and hedges among the common peo ple. MORE SILVER DISCUSSION*. The Globe publishes two communica tions this morning on the silver question, one approving the views heretofore ex pressed by the Globe and the other dis senting from them. As our Grand Forks correspondent says tho silver question is a problem that no one person or newspaper can hope to solve. It is only by securing M aggregation of opinions and then by comparison and juxtaposition of views that anything like a satisfactory conclusion can be readied. We are free, to say to our Albert Lea correspondent that the Globe regrets that it cannot range itself on the side of the administration upon this subject. The Globe holds President Cleveland in such high esteem and has so much faith in the honesty of his convictions that it is always painful to be compelled to differ with him in regard to any matter. Natur ally our party predilections would Incline us to look with favor upon any suggestions which come from a Democratic administra tion, But however strong our party fealty. we feel that it would be wrong to sacrifice ' honest convictions to partisan consid erations under any circumstances, but more particularly with reference to ■ ques tion which is not and can never be made a party political issue, and in the determina tion of which the people have such vital in terest as they do in the decision of the sil ver question. From his standpoint Mr. Cleveland believes that he is right. From our standpoint we are sure that we, are right. And as the issue is to be settled by the people, the Globe has pursued the ! policy of presenting both sides of the con troversy, in order that its readers may be enabled to form correct judgment Our Grand Forks correspondent makes the very forcible suggestion that increasing the volume of currency will not benefit the fanning and laboring classes, who consti tute the great bulk of our population, unless some method bo devised to put the money into circulation and to keep it circulating. That is true enough. Hut it is by making money plentiful that it is put into circula tion. It is only when any particular kind of money is appreciated in value that it is hoarded. If the brokers find it profitable to hoard gold they will do so. But when It is once understood that it In the definite permanent policy of the. United states to make silver equal to gold in its debt-paying capacity there will be no temptation to hoard gold in this country. And particularly when It Is once understood that there will always be a suf ficient amount of silver on hand to redeem the paper currency. If there is any dis honor attached to silver it is only the result of the vacillating policy the government THE ST. PAtTL DAILY GLOBE. MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 13, 1886. lias pursued with reference to it. A* soon as the government inaugurates the policy, as it will ere lone, of paying oil the na tional debt in gold and silver equally the equilibrium will be established. We will hear nothing more after that about the dishonest silver dollar. Whenever the bondholders are compelled to abide by the terms of their contract and to receive in payment of their bonds the kind of money they agreed to accept, the controversy about the relative value of gold and silver will cease. When a fictitious value can no longer be given to gold and a dishonest de preciation of value to silver there will be no more hoarding of the precious metals. In stead of hiding Itself away in vaults, gold will come out to take Its place by the side of its twin sister and the two will be dis seminated harmoniously together and by their united aid the waste places will ba rebuilt and the wilderness will blossom as the rose. The silver problem is going to find its own solution, so far as America is con cerned. God has planted it here along with gold and it only remains for the wis dom of our own people to apply it to the purpose for which He designed it LABIAL, ANESTHETICS. Opium and cocoaine and ail the other poisonous anaesthetics are to be done away. A New York clergyman has discovered a substitute which is bound to become so popular that the old foggy methods of in ducing quiet to disordered nerves will soon become obsolete. When on trial before the church authorities for an alleged assault on a young female parishioner, the ac cused admitted that he had kissed her. but explained that she was a nervous girl and being desirous to assure the timid maiden that she had one > true friend in the world he had resorted to ' the labial process, which he knew to bo a i dead shot for nervous diseases. In view of , the serious results which are every day oc . curring from the use of all the medicinal . drugs which people with sensitive nerves are resorting to in order to obtain surcease ; from pain, it is singular that this kind hearted old clergyman should have kept this valuable secret so long shut up in bis own bosom; or. what is still more singular, that some one else hadn't made the discovery before. But. at all events the simple statement of this rever end witness is going to be credited. The new anajstbetlc remedy has so many meritorious features over the old school class of opiates that it is sure to grow into popularity, even though its processes of bringing relief to the nerve-wrecked patient are slower. In fact the length of time It will take to bring the nervous system around to a healthy normal condition will be one of its chief commendations. There is a pleas antness about this new remedy which will reconcile a patient to a long course of treat ment. And then another merit is its inex pensiveness. A ton of kisses wouldn't cost as much as an ounce of co coaine. There Is a feature of communism about it which brings the new remedy within as easy access to the poor as to the rich. It also has the advantage over hasheesh in this while it produces that same dreamy condition of hallowed bliss in the beginning, it does not leave that agon izing condition of utter wretchedness which follows In the trial of the opium debauch. The objection to the remedy is that it will have a tendency to increase nervous diseases. The remedy will become so popular that people will become afflicted with nervous troubles just for the sake of taking the medicine. With landlordism in Ireland as exacting as over and the poverty of tho people dally in creasing, the stories of frequent starvation are beginning to come in. As nothing can be expected from England. it is more than likely that America may soon feel called upon to send over another relief expedition. Gex.

After a long contest the legislature two years ago passed a bill to reduce the man license fee from $4.50 to 51. but Gov. McLane refused I to sign it, and thereby incurred the enmity of many poor young lovers contemplating matrimony. Although the present legisla ture has been in session only two weeks, several bills on the marriage license ques tion have been introduced. It is argued by several of the members that the foe Is ex orbitant and drives poor young couples to the District of Columbia, where no fee is required to be wedded. The round-trip fare from Baltimore to Washington is only Si, and for Si a young man can take his sweetheart to Washington to be mar ried, and have a little wedding tour for what the license alone would cost in Mary land. In the counties bordering on the District of Columbia, it is a rare thing for a license to be. taken out in Maryland. It is cheaper and pleasantec to take a ride to Washington and be married. One of the bills now pending hi to reduce the fee to 50 cents, and another is to abolish it altogether. A number of amusing letters have been re ceived from country couples by th« mem bers, petitioning a reduction of the fee. '1 lie present governor is a bachelor, but it is re ported contemplates matrimony, so that, should the bill to reduce or abolish the fee pass, it may not be vetoed by Gov. Lloyd. >ot a Doctor* Special to the Globe, Buffalo, N. V., Jan. 17.— Araone those occupying seats inside the railing at the police court yesterday morning was Prof. O. S. Fowler, the veteran phrenol ogist, who had been arrested on a warrant sworn out by Dr. Edward Storck, president of the board of censors of the Erie County Medical society, charging the professor with practicing medicine illegally. The warrant was served on the professor at his rooms in the Tifft bouse, about 10 o'clock. The phrenological sage denies that he practices medicine, and asserts he has vio lated no laws; that he is simply a phrenol ogist, and does not give medicine to those who apply to have their craniums exam ined. There was quite a crowd of people in his ante room at the hotel, waiting their turns to have their bumps told, when the detective served the warrant. Prof. Fowler was held fojr the grand jury, and released on his own recognizance. Foul Play Suspected. PiTTSBUno, Jan. 17. — This evening Thomas Robson. a well-dressed English man, called at the mayor's office and re ported the mysterious disappearance of his friend, George llissel. Robson stated that he met Hissel on board a steamer, and they arrived in New York from England last Wednesday, they came to this city this j morning, and while eating breakfast at the Union depot restaurant a stranger came up and in an authorativo tone Informed Ulssd that he was wanted by the chief of police. He at first refused to ac company the stranger, but finally con sented, telling Bohsoa he would be back in a short time. The latter waited all day, and llensel not returning, decided to report the matter to the police. The chief of po lice stated that he had not sent for EUsbsl, and no person answering his description had called at the office. Ilissel had over S3OO in his possession, and it is feared he has been made the victim of foul play. Will Probably Accept. PiTTSBUno.

Victoria's Sanction to a Separate Parlia ment for Ireland Will Be He fused. Parnell Says if Coercion Is Proposed Ha Will Make Public Anti-Election Promises. — —^__ Indications of a Liberal Revolt Against Gladstone, But no One Can Succeed Him. The Scotch Delegation and the Radi cals Strongly In Favor of Unity. 1b« Queen's Veto. . Special to the Globe. London. Jan. 17.— The question of Irish coercion will be decided at a series of cab inet councils during the coming week. Lord Salisbury is reported to-night to have re- ' ceived a decided intimation from the I queen that the royal sanction will jbe refused to any bill creating : a separate parliament for Ireland. ' The statement Is made on good authority. Chamberlain, speaking yesterday, declared emphatically against any measure calculated i to affect the integrity of the empire. It is confidently asserted that Mr. Gladstone has given aviurauce to bis political supporters that he his not any time proposed I form of home rule for Ireland exceeding local self-government and accompanying reforms, and that he does not intend to do so. Lord Carnarvon visited the colonial office yesterday and remained some time. It is believed ho is Inclined to accept tho exchange from Ireland to the colonial office. Col. Stanley, colonial secretary, is spoken of as likely to go to Ireland until matters are settled. Col. Stanley was secretary of state for war under Lord Beaconsfield and a firm believer in a strong government in Ireland. Mr. Parnell. accord to state ments extensively telegraphed yesterday, is preparing in the event of the Salisbury cabinet refusing to bring in an Irish bill conceding the terms proposed as the price of Nationalist support, to produce evidence of a conclusive char acter from electioneering agents and parlia mentary candidates themselves as to the understanding by which the Tor.. re ceived the Irish vote.. It Is stand to-night that among the witnesses lie can put in the box are two who are capable of throwing more LIGHT ON THE SUBJECT than any other, namely. Lord Randolph Churchill for Lord Salisbury and Mr. T. M. Mealy on the part of the Nationalists. These gentlemen will bo asked to state what they know about the anti-election ar rangements, and more particularly about the Christmas trip of his lordship to Ireland. It seems incredible In the face of what passed during November, and later in January, between representatives of the Nationalists and Tories, that coercion meas ures In Ireland are seriously contemplated by the Tory cabinet now. An inquiry set on foot among the Scotch Liberals as to their views on the Irish question, has elicited the fact that not a single member among those whose inten tions are known will commit themselves to any scheme of separation. The Scotch delegation, as a body, may be said to be solidly in favor of unity of the. empire, inclining to a conservative policy in ques tions of constitutional changes affecting the relations of the the three countries. The weekly press throughout the country indi cates a rapid growth of anti-separation opinion In connection with Irish affairs. There Is scarcely a trait of ill-feeling against the Irish people, but ample evidence of the belief that the, Nationalists are secessionists in disguise, and of a determin ation not to permit Mr. Gladstone to drag the county into concessions, strengthening secession schemes if there are any.

To the Editor of the Globe: I have had hopes that the GLOB! would range itself on the side of the administra tion upon the silver question, but the edito rial in Tuesday's paper, replying to the query of a correspondent dissipates that hope. It is, however, some comfort to ascertain that the Globe does not advocate the continued coinage of the present bogus dollars. But be that as it may, 1 wish to make some comments on a few of the state ments contained in that article. You say in substance that if the standard dollars do not contain sufficient silver then put In more silver, and you follow this up by an intimation that silver may not have de clined in value, but that the trouble is that gold has appreciated. In my judgment that statement is a fallacy. The Denver Tribune of the Ist inst., a silver organ, published in a silver-producing region, says that there was a decline of 8 cents per ounce In the value of silver during the year ISSS, and it naively adds that as soon as the country is convinced that the provisions of THE BLAND BILL are to be continued in force, undoubtedly there will be a rise in the price of the pre cious metal. On the Ist day of January, ISM, the price was quoted by the Tribune at Sl.o2>£ per ounce. This would make the standard dollar worth 79,4" cents. Since then there has been a further decline. It Is folly to claim that there has been no actual decline in the value of silver. The report of a director of the mint shows clearly the natural cause that has produced this result, viz., immense production. The proposition 10 remedy the evils of silver coinage by put ting more silver in the dollar are met by the fact that the value of the metal is too fluc tuating to make a safe medium for money, and the only reply the silver men make to this charge is that silver has not declined in value, but that gold has appreciated. It is the only answer there la, and it is a fal lacious one. The solid fact is that silver should not be coined at all except for use as subsidiary money. Now, a word as to your claim that there is not money enough in the country. How do you propose to remedy this evil?" If you say by coining more silver, then 1 ask how will that help the matter? Do you think think the government should resort to the payment of the public debt in silver as a means of making money more plentiful? Yours truly. W. W. Williams. Albert Lea, Jan. 14, ISBO. Silver Diacuskion. To the Editor of the Globe: I read the Globe's article upon the silver question, published in your edition of the 12th hist, with much interest, but don't quite understand how your recommenda tions or suggestions are going to relieve the situation. After stating that the monetary volume of the United States has not kept pace with the progress the country has made in other respects, you protest against the enactment of any law tending toward the dimuuition of the volume of the money of our country, and recommend the in creasing of it. Suppose the volume was in creased to an amount equal to that of all the other countries on the globe combined, bow would that help the fanning and labor ing classes, who constitute the great mass of our population, and whose interests you claim demand the continuation of silver coinage? or what will an unlimited volume amount to without the necessary products to call it into circulation? After all, isn't something to call money into circulation what THE COUNTRY NEEDS more than a greater volume of money? Is not the hard times due more to the fact that money for some years past has been diverted from its natural channels than from a lack of volume, or from the kind of material money is made of? The money question is one that has puzzled and worried the brains of our wisest statesmen and most profound philosophers, hence the Globe cannot hope to solve the problem at "one fell swoop." Yet it is a question of importance to every one. and a subject about which the people should have a better understanding, there fore, let the Globk continue the. good work. Will you also state whether a silver 25-cent piece is worth 23 cents in gold, and whether all fractional silver coin Is worth its face in gold. This question is suggested by a statement recently made by Congress man Hill of the Defiance, (>., district, wherein he presents a scheme by which a 15-cent drink of whisky can be obtained for nothing. His plan is to always pay for your drinks with silver dollars, and get change in return worth the intrinsic value of the coin with which the drink was purchased. If this be true, the attention of the alleged Dakota senators and their cohorts now at Washington. should be called to the scheme, which would, doubtless, ob viate the neceesity of their demand upon the honest yeomanry of the territory for funds.

To the Editor of the Globe: Seeing a note in your valuable paper about the youngest soldier in the Union army induced me to write to you and tell you that I can safely contradict the statements that have been made. I have a brother that enlisted in New York in the Twelfth United States infantry in the month of May, 1564, and he was born in August 1552, so you see he lacked a few months of being 12 years old. He served for three years and was discharged at Washington, D. C, ISG7. Going from there to New York, he re-enlisted in August, 1807, and served three years longer, and from there he went to Mackinaw, Mich., and was dis charged at the end of his term, where he now resides.

THE BALL DBES3. Leoline Harper was just 13— a bright, I ambititious, high-spirited girl, who earned her livelihood by teaching in one of th« gigantic grammar schools of New York, and spent a good deal of her leisure time in dreaming of a brighter future. "For I don't want to drudge all my life so," said Leoline; 'I am pretty enough.'' with a conscious, laughing glance at the 1 mirror, "and clever enough, 1 hope, to 1 make my own future." "Yes. dear." said Aunt Josepha, who admired her neice excessively, "you are pretty enough. And I believe you are smart enough. But still 1 don't understand how you are going to do- it." "You'll see," said Leoline, with a smile ; and a nod. And when Kittie Topplefleld. who taught lin the primary department of the saiuo school, told Aunt Josie about Mr. Maurice, the new trustee, who was so handsome ami wore such superb diamond stud.'* and ad mired Leoline's method of imparting in struction so enthusiastically, she began to comprehend what her niece meant "Leo," said she, when she had the raro chance of being alone with her niece, "do you like this M:. Maurice?" The very blood flushed into Leollue's ■ face, "Of course I like him. Aunt Josle," said she. **Do you love him?" "I— l don't know whether I Blight or I not," said Leo. coloring still deeper, "that is, if 1 knew him better, He is a society man, and I— oh. Aunt Jo, i have so few I opportunities. If I was only in a fashion- I able circle, like Georgia Fltzalan!" , Now, Miss Georgia Fitzalan was a pretty, dashing young lady, the daughter of a rioh Importing merchant, who had been in th« same class with Leoliue Harper at school and Leolme had always secretly envied her the luxurious, butterfly sort of lif « that seemed to have bo few ol the elements of shadow about it. "And," added Leollne, "he Is to bo at Georgia s birthday party— Georgia baa asked mo to come— and— and 1 can't pe cause 1 haven't anything tit to wear. And \ I do believe, Aunt Jo, if 1 could only , go " * "Yes, yes, I understand, my dear said Aunt Josie, regretfully. "But Ido not Bee that you can go." "Nor 1 either, "said Leo, gulping down a little suffocating lump that somehow would keep rising in her throat. "So I must just be contented to give it. up." But half an hour afterward she came to her aunt, with deepened color and cairer, shining eyes, the newspaper in her hand. "Look! Aunt Josi.'." cried she. "La, child," said th« old lady, "you know I can't see a thing without my spec tacles.' 1 "Then I'll read it to you."

"What do you think of that, aunty? Blue is just my color. And silk, too! Why, I never had a real silk in my life." "I don't like the idea of second-hand finery," said Aunt Josepha, shaking her head. "But when you can't afford anything else," pleaded Leoline. "Then Id stay at home/ "Oh, Aunt Josie. I do so want to go." •"And S-5 is a deal of money," added the old lady, still shaking her bead. "But 1 could borrow $-.»0 of Kittie Top pletield until my salary comes due. And I've got So of my own laid up toward a uew waterproof cloak." "My dear, remember the old fable of the daw with borrowed plumes," warned Aunt Josepha. "If this man is really a man of sense ho will think as much of you in your cashmere school-dress as if you wore the queen's diamonds." But Leo, in her heart believing that Aunt Josie was hopelessly behiud the age, 'persisted. "I Will go to the number and address, said she, "and I will look at the silks. Of course, you know, 1 needn't buy unless 1 like them." The house was a magnificent brown-stone establishment, whose splendor rather abashed our little school teacher. "H. C." proved to be Mile. Hortense Cheater, the lady's maid, who occupied an airy fourth-story apartment, to which the visitor was conducted by a grumbling footman. Leoliue felt altogether out of her element, and almost sorry fth< had come. But when she saw the super* | silks, scarcely worn, her art leaped within her. The blue one was trimmed with deep pointed white Spanish Monde, and proved I to be the exact color to match Leo's brighl beauty. "Madame bestows these upon us," said Hortense, grimacing and twisting herself about after the fashion of French femme de chambrcs. "Madame is all goodness, all bonte." So Leo bought the dress, and it was sent home that same evening. "Yes," said Aunt Josie, "it's very pretty, but all the same I don't like you to wear a second-hand dress.' "A great many ladies do the same thing, Aunt Jo." "A great many ladies do a very foolish thins, then." retorted the old lady. But. notwithstanding Aunt Josle'fl dis approval, Leo felt very proud and happy when she went off that evening. dressed In the blue silk, which required very little alteration to tit her supple figure. Miss Fitzalan's parlors were full. The music was playing — the scent of roses and heliotrope filled the air— and Leo's heart beat high with anticipatory triumph as she saw Mr. Maurice among the crowd. The next moment she perceived that he was not alone. A tall and beautiful young lady leaned on his arm. With a nameless pang of joalonsy Leo ine II aiper would fain nave shrunk away, but Mr. Maurice advanced directly toward her. "M 133 Harper." said he, with bland cour tesy, "allow me to present to you my wife! Mrs. Maurice, Miss Harper. Oh, I sec you are surprised," with a .smile to Leo. "So am I. She only arrived from Europe four days ago." Leo tried to murmur a few congratulatory words, but she could hardly make herself audible. Mrs. Maurice put up her eye glasses. "How very strange," cried she. "My blue silk dress that I had made at Worth's; I should know the trimmings anywhere. May I venture to ask, Miss Harper, if you order your dresses from Worth?" Leo turned scarlet, bin she clung bravely to the anchor of truth. "No," said she, although every pulse m her body tingled with mortification; "I am only a school teacher and can afford no such extravagance as that. I bought it second hand from Mile. Hoitense Chenier. liotherward street." "My maid,' cried Mrs. Maurice. "And she stole it from me— all the time pretend ing the hypocrite, that the packing case which contained it was lost on the voyage!" Mr. Maurice burst out laughing. "That comes of your foreign French maids," said he. While Leo felt her face glow with burn ing scarlet. "I— l am very sorry," said she, "I hope you do not consider it my fault!" "Oh. not at all." said Mrs. Maurice. "Perhaps I shouldn't have spoken of it, but you see I was so taken by surprise. Pray wear the dress. It is so charmingly becom ing to you." But Leo did not remain long. She felt as if every one in the room must know that she was wearing a second-hand dress — sto len from its owner! And the fact, now for the first time ascertained, that Mr. Maurice was a married man had seemed to take all the sparkle and effervescence out of her life. She went home early and cried herself to sleep. The next morning she sent back tin dress to Mrs. Maurice, with a note of apol ogy. And she has been a wiser girl ever since. "If my fortune comes to me, well and good." says she; "but I shall not go a stec out of my way to seek it" A Fatal Snow Slide. Oubay. Col., Jan. 17.— Ruby Trust'j cabin on Mt.
