Oranges I oranges I fresh ns'tho day, Hest In'tho garden's range, With the .tinge of nmlxsr melting away Into a richer change', With tiny la'onds of yellow mould, l'ceplng from rich sea-green, And a cunning network of red and gold Covering all between.

Mary's fattier, A. .1. uiinii, Keeps small grocery store at -11M8 Market street. His daughter lost her sight from searlet fever, when about six yo.irs of ago, anil four or live years ago r ip turctl tho ball of ono eyo by striking it against tlio edgo of a chair, notwith standing which siio now sees ordinary objects dimly, and claims to seo tho ap parition ot 1110 virgin iiiiiiiuiiiy. as might bo supposed, sho is ipiito illiter ate, though sho has boon a'slo to do all kinds of housework. Two weeks ago sho was seized with a sovero attack of diphtheria, followed by eerobro spinal meningitis, and after several sovero con vulsions, lay for nioro than a week in a tranco-llko stupor, from which sho was arrouscd with dilllculty to take a llttlo liquid food. Tho only Indications sho gave of consciousness during this por lotl was on ouo occasion when tlio fami ly physician, Dr. Hughes, was present wiion slio suuuoniy ucgan 10 sing, aim sang a long hymn. Tho doctor, how ever, was convinced Unit tho singing was involuntary, nnd tho kin entirely unconscious all tho timo. Since that timo tho girl has been in a very weak condition. Thrco Sundays ago sho told her parents that sho expected to sco tlio Virgin Mary that evening, nnd a crowd of sympathlzim: Catholio neighbors visited the house to sco if her oxnecta tion would bo roalized. As midnight approached Mary bogan to pray fervent ly, and presently, so her father says, a I111I1, tf llrrlit. nnnonrnd nn tint whlln- waslietl wim of her room, and soon af ter a woman's ligure, about a foot lilh, clothed lu white garments, and attended bv two kncclinir nntiuls, was clearly por trayed. A crown glittering with golden rays was on tho head of tho ligure, and suspended above it win a criicillx. This was not tho llrst timo tho girl claimed to havo scon tho vision, but it was tlio first timo it was seen by others. A number of witnesses declare they saw saw it sinco that nisrht. Mary and tho family havo scon fclmilar visions threo or four times but, by tho doctor's or dors. visitors havo boon excluded. Tho srirl was found to-night hlim lu a bed in a whitewashed room, communicating bv a door with another room in which stootl an alter, while several religious pictures hun" on tho wall. It is in tho latter room that tho visions nappcar.

Tlio mixture is then run on fine, vibratory sieves, witli nioro wator added; tho liner, starchy part of tlio corn is wasneti inrougli llit sieves, while Uio hull, gluten and woody liber goes over tlio tail of tlio sieves, and af ter tlio water Is squeezed from it by rol lers is sold for feed. Tlio portion that wont through tho sieves is rim into tanks and settled; the water U thou drawn oil', and tho sediment again mix ed with clean water and treated with alkali (caustic soda,) to separate any trace ot gluten irom inosiarcny nnttcr. It is next run into long, mbtal.liucd troughs or vats, about eight Indies deep, from three to fifteen indies wide, nnd from ouo hundred to ono hundred aud llfiy foot long; these descend slight ly, and most of tlio water runs oil" at the lower end, leaving tho seilimont at tho bottom. Tlio sediment is left to settle and dry somowhat, aud is thou shoveled out, and known as green starch, about (lrty per cent of it being water. It is now in a condition to bo made either into starch,'or into glucose. "The 'green starch' is mixoiF again with clean water, making it quito thin, when it is run into largo wooden tanks called 'oonvortors.' in which it is treat ed with acid usually sulphuric, but sometimes muriatio or nltrlo, or even oxalic. Tim acid causes the starch to tako up tho elements by which it is eon verted into glueoso; but tho add does not enter into chemical combination with tho starch. During the conversion tho liquid is kept at the boiling point by steam pipes. Chemical tests aro ap plied at Intervals to ascertain wlion Uio conversion is eomploto; aftor wliloli tho mlxturo Is drawn oil' Into other tanks, whoro tlio acid Is neutralized witli mar bio dust, chalk, whiting, or somo form of carbonate of lime or otiiuralkali, "Tho mlxturo is now thin glueoso syrup, but somowhat discolored, and containing cortaln impurities.

K11 terlng tho cemetery the vMtor reads over Uio gateway of a very plain wooden construction the Inscription, "Oak liidge Cemetery." At thu gate stands a well dressed man, who Tins ollleiatetl for some years us 11 sort of sentry or over seer, whoso duty seems to bo to see that no drunken characters drive In, and to prevent, as far as possible, any disorder ly conduct on the grounds. Passing to tho right is tho Sexton's lioii'e, and here is kept tho cemetery register, where the visitor records his name. Haeli year has added now beauty and improvement to Oak Ridge, and the visitor who en tered tlio gates upon that memorable April day when thu lamented President was consigned to the tomb, would now hardly recognize tho place. Tho cem etery is the property of nstouk company of Sprlnglield, who a few year. before tlio war purchased the property at a rather cheap ligure. The - isttot to thu tomb of Lincoln lingers as if in a dream. TrMn the tomb a most beautiful landscape Is spread before Uio visitor, and through tlio rich foliage of the inngnilieont trees hero mid there nrcdottcd tho tombstones of many of Lincoln's earlier friends who knew hint years ago as 11 struggling young lawyer, with nothing before him but an honest ambition and line natural talents. Grand, gloomy and sublime is tho sight before its, with nothing to mar tlio loveliness of Uio snot except in the very near distance, where is lo bo seen Uio iiuiucnso volumes of heavy black .smoke, pulling and escaping from tlio high smokestack of a lager beer brewery into the coinetery.

Woodon grates furnished a kind of fence between tho atrium and what -an old Pompeian would havo styled the triclinium. In tlio further part a table was laid for supper anil lighted witli suspended lamps. And hero a party of ar tists and students drank and talked anil smoked.

On dressers at each end of tho room stood glass shrines, occupied by Unoly-drosscil Madonna dolls and pots of artlllclal llowers. Above the doors St. Michael and St. I'l-anels, roughly embossed lu low relief nnd boldly painted, gave dignity and grand eur to the walls.

Hiiiniitlc. Story nf the Duliit of Siilii'rl:lliilV .Mother. The New York correspondent of the Hart font Catmint Is responsible for the following: The Duke of Sutherland, with his party, among w deli Dr. Russell of Hull Run fame was included, sailed from this city for Kngliintl a few days ago. I have heard a story about tho mother of the present duke, ntono tiinu mistress of the robes to (juoon Victoria, which is not n little remarkable and which I have every reason except personal knowledge, to believe to be true. The story, which has nover boon in riut, was in substance as follows: Tho Duchess of Sutherland (that is tlio mother of our recent visitor) is re corded lu "Hurke's Pcerago" us bolii" the third daughter of the sixth Karl of Carlisle, but she was In fact tho daugh ter of Samuel Katmun, a comporative ly poor man, who lived in tho suburb of London known us Hottorsoa, and who was for many years beadle of the Itat tersea parish church. He was of good L'nglish farmer stock, but ids wifo was of more gentle blood, and was a cousin of Lady Itessboroiigh, who was well known in her time, about 180(1 to lS'.'O. and one of whose relatives has ligiired somewhat prominently in connection with the parliamentary treatment of tlio esisting Irish laud troubles. Mrs. East man being very ill and not expecting to live, allowed her cousin, Lady llessbor oiigb, to take her Infant child, Harriet Klizubolh, with the understanding that she would give ittheacro that Itslnoth or could not give it then. After a long illness Mrs. Eastman recovered, bill when she called upon Lady llessboroiigh to return the child, she was imforineil that it hud died at the Mo of Wight, where she bad taken it. Mrs. Eastman did not doubt tho story at the time, and khe named the two next children that were bom to her Harriet nnd Elizabeth respectively. Many years afterward. Lady Rcsshorotigh beiii" dead, a Mrs Peterson, her ladv's maiif, informed Mrs. Eastman that 'her child not only had not died, but had been transferred by Lady Ressborough to tho li..,-! of Odillsli) aud uilopifit uy nun as Ids own child, aud bad iiisl then married tho Duke of Sutherland. Mrs. Peterson mided that Lady llessboroiigh hud ad jured her 011 her death bed to inform her cousin of the fact, nnd to do what sho could to repair the wrong that she had done. Uoiore anything further was said or dono about it Mrs. Eastman died. lho next that was known in tlio East man family in respect to tho matter was null uiu 1'iiKo or lJiiohcss of Sutherland sent a Dr. Lee, of London, to oiler Mr. Eastman such a farm as ho might select, and an income for life, if he would not lay claim to the Duchess as bis daugh ter; but the old man had nioro pride than policy, refused tlio oiler on tlioso conditions antl tlietl poor. Such are tho leading points of this story. Why Lady Ressborough should give away a child she, had used such deception to secure, or why tlio Earl of ariisio siiouni nave mailu tho ohibl his own, coultl not bo explained by mv in formant: hut she told her storv. straight. antl related so many little incidents in connection with it that it was dillletilt to doubt that she was narrating veritable history. She had in her possession a picture which closely resembled herself, and which was a likeness of the late Duchess. Tlio two were sisters, both being daughters of l-armer Eastman. Hv all accounts tho Duchess was a good 'and uoblo woman, possessing tho respect and love of all who know her. either personally or by reputation, and the same thing can bo said of my inform ant, who is known to bo of unimpeach able respectability, and who in any event hail nothing to gain by giving false information, The personal habits and tastes of tho present Duke tend to confirm tho story. He is a plain man of democratic instincts, and with great passion for machinery, and particularly locomotive engineering, it will bo re membered that while ho was visiting Goor 0 W. Chillis in Philntlolphla, ho induced the latter to accompany him in a railroad rido on tho front of a locomo tive; and a friend of mine, an English man, tells mo that ont t, being on a visit to a new English ship wlioso ninohlnory had somo notable features, he stumbled In the bowels of the vessel across a man wearing a rusty blouse, and whoso face and hands showed that he had been hard at work In connection with the engino, and that tho man, looking outwardly very iiiuoh like n skillful mechanic was tlio Duke of Sutherland. Often in Eng land, I nm told, the Duko runs a loco motlvo engine, just as other lino folk of that sort drive 11 four-in-haiid, Tlio Young Woman's Pront Hair. Thoro is no season of tlio year when a young woman doesn't have all the trouble with lier front hair that anybody ought to havo with anything In this world, but in tlio soft summer weather the nianogoment of tho front hair, or bangs, or frizzes, or whatever It may called, is quite too awfully discourag ing for anything. During the cold and solid weather a young lady's hair will stay anywhoro sho may put It; sho may even uang 11 over 1110 gas uxiuros or on tho towel raok and It will remain ns complacently and unrutlled as may bo doslred. The bandolinlng compounds know their placu in tho winter timo and maintain tliolr dignity. Thoy 01111 always bo rolled upon. But when the warm weather coinos it is dlil'orent. All front hair molts down -is ovorythlng oho molts. Tlio bandolinlng glue won't hang togotlier, and tho young woman who goes out in good order, lias no Idea where, sho will find tlio most of her nlco frizzes aud bangs an hour hence. They hFivJy melted and nm all around scattered V ft)d lnt? ?2j Bio look wK oh Isn't jR"1 8l0 know9 sho Is a fright; she says so .. . hou'jantt times a day. Sho goes around In -sarct of mirrors to sco Just how awfully Mi fill slio does appear, ami pulls away nt her hair until sho gets It exactly wficro she doesn't want it, and goes riding onn lu Uio street-car with an unnatural xeltcmont about Iter, cheeks Unshod, antl knowing perfectly well that every body Is wondering wliat is tho mnttor. Tlds Is a very sovero trial to a young woman, but she endures it with a forti tude tlmt would givo way at tho sight of a mouse. Anybody would supposo that one day's experience of tlds tiling would lie enough. Hut don't for a mo ment deceive yourself wilh Uio notion that it is. No pooiicr tloes she escape from the public in tlds melted and de moralized condition than shu makes ar rangements to go through It all again. She pastes her front linirln place with a patience and skill which would win tier fame If devoted to somo durablo works shu wraps an old and faded veil about her bond to keep the pasted frag ments in place while in the house, and llnnlly she goes out again, knowing as well as she knows anything which is sometimes suspected to bo not very muchthat in 11 very short time sho will be lu a state of trouble and confus ion about that front hair, as sho has been many, niaiiv times before. Tho young women will go on doing lids its long as it is tlio fashion. It never oc curs to them to tlo a sensible or a neat and tasteful thing in tlio way of Ihlng the hair unless it is the fashion fortliein to tlo so; tint! sadly enough it must bo said that anything "so sensible is hardly ever fashionable. Tlio consolation which any siilTerlng young woman has unquestionably, is that nearly every young woman Is a'bout as much of a fright as sho is, Co-opera-tive intory,so to say, is always the moro endurable. Every observing human being wlio goes where young women are 011 these .summer-like days, must bo convinced, however, of tho "great need of somo device which shall in soniti measure mitigate tlio horrors of tho feminine front hair. In its present un protected condition it ruins the pleasure of life during the warm days, and des troys tlio prettiest pictures of tlio drawing-room and tho promenade. Tliero can be 110 real happiness until front hair has been educated to stay where it is put at all seasons of the year, or un til young women have been educated not to put it whero it is impossible to expect it to stay. Fashion Notes. A novelly in in.ported dresses is tho Use of large pins of gilt or oxidized sil ver, shaped like hugo hairpins, for se curing the drapery of woilen dresses, such as dark-blue nun's veiling or porco- luiu-iuuo camel's nair. Munlltr pins, shaped like nail heads llattened, aro then thrust into the scarf drapery on the wrists of thu sleeves, in the belt, and aro also used to dose the front of tho dress like buttons. Spanish lace dresses have short skirts and are entirely white ; they aro worn at day receptions with white Panama bonnets or round hats that may havo colored plumes and colored velvet ideated in the brim, but aro also seen with white pliimes ami with white Span ish lace and scarf mantles, the only color lu the whole toilette being given ly ll,. !.-- l...-.,..v ,,.,,,,.., dowers 111 Uio corsage. Colored underskirts aro no longer fashionable on tho other; side of the water. Neither are white skirts worn, except tho short petticoat. Tho correct long underskirt is of black silk or black cash mere. Tlioso who prefer silk to linen for underclothing will llnd tho late re vival, spun silk, very desirable, as it washes well,, is soft and pliable, and at thu same time strong. Black Spanish htce fans 0f circular shape are lllildo tip over a still' foundation that Is pleated In tho center, and fasten ed to a thick handle wrapped with ribbons. A bunch of natural llowors is thu prettiest trimming for such a fan, though thoy aro usually provided with artiliclnl clusters of Marshal Noil roses or dark Jacqueminot buds, A white Spanish lace polonaise abun dantly trimmed with luco ami wliito nioiro ribbon bows is a beautiful dross cover to wear with white skirts of satin surah, white moire, gauze, or nun's veiling. Scarfs of colored surah for tlio neck have square ends of wliito or of ecru vermicelli) lace, embroidered with gay silks in pretty designs of baskets hold ing llowers, biitterllies and birds' nests.

A correspondent writes from North Gormany: "I drew attention some liino sinco to Uio oxtremo politeness now shown to waiters and servants generally in Franco; what was my surprise on re visiting Germany after many years' ab- seuco to llnd a similar reformation lu manners. I could hardly boliovo mv ears when, instead of Uio contemptuous antl odious "du," I heard a waiter ad dressed as Hon Obor-kollnor, nnd a housemaid (of hotel) as "I rauloln." This pol tenoss Is now exacted indeed, and If vou address a hoad-waitnr as kollner." ho pays no moro attention than if Mr. Smith was addressod as Mr. Brown. Such outwnrd olvlllty towanl domestic servants indicates radical ohanges, moro consideration toward tlioin, greater self-respect among them selves, anil many other improvements. Let English travellers, therefore, bo on their guard, for any falling horo 19 so down as bad manors, and no amouut of trnikglod will atone for haughtiness or incivility toward tliolr so-called "inferi ors." .
