have approitcbed him with such a request
but I said nothing to father of her de

Willi quick, trembling limbs, I hasten

parlor door to And myself face to face
with the atrnnger who, weeks before, had

My face grew red and pale ns I re

quietly, and, taking my hand, said
"Come, we will have a little bilk first,
and then you ahull take me to aee your

1 quickly olieyed him, and ant down

be of some assistance.
Then I fouud words, and when he
left me to visit my father, I found my
self awaiting his return with a calm as
surance that, could mortal aid avail him,
he would find it iu Dr. Melrose's healing
touch.
A half hour passed before his return,
and when he enteied the room I knew I
might hope.
"It is not so bad as I feared," he said.
"Time and careful nursing will soon re
store him. The lutter I shall intrust to
you"
Then he gave me his .'directions 10
clearly that I could not misunderstand
them, and when lie bade me good by,
holding both my hands for a moment

sprang up, ashamed of my momentary
weakness, to find myulf clasped in my
sister's warm, loviog embrace.
She had come buck lovelier than ever.
Ah, I could gu:s what had deepened
the flush upon iter cheek, the radiance of
her eyt !
I smoothed my disordered hair, listen
ing the while to her merry talk, though
lint a word did she say of bim whose
deep, manly tones I could bear now and
then as he sat talking.
"Look your best," six said, with a ro
guish twinklo "your very, very best !
There I am satisfied."
And, taking me by the hand, she ran
rapidly down into the room wherethey
all sat.
Dr. Melrose Instnntly arose and came
forward with bis old smile of welcome,
and made a movement us though lie
would already give me a brother's kiss,
but remembered in time I hat his secret
was not yet disclosed.
The evening pussed rapidly away in
pleasant laugh and jest. Occasionally I
intercepted a glance between Maude and
her guest, full of meaning, but no one
else seemed to notice it. At last he rose
to hid us good-night, and as lie held my
hand a moment in his own, he whisper
ed :
"You have always been most indefn
tiguable in pressing my small claim up
on you. To-morrow I will present it to
you for payment. May I see you for a
few moments in the morning?"
"Certainly," I answered, but my voice
trembled, ami, I think, had he staved a
moment longer, I should have burst in
to tears.
All through that long niglit I watched
my sister, sleeping so peacefully by my
side, waging my little war with self.

did not otten wander from the stylish,
elegant Miss Leonards to seek any other
attractions.
I saw them glance around once or
wice, as if to discover what else in tlie
church could possibly distract attention
from themselves, aud I iear I felt more
pride in Madde'a beauty than was quite
consistent with the sacred place in which
we were.

How Tomatoes ars Canned.
The large consumption nf canned
eoods in this country, and the market
which is opening for them in Europe;
the great variety of farm products which
the factories demand, and tlm near home
market which they make for perishable
fruits and vegetables, render tlii. indus
try a matter of interest to all intelligent
farmer!. Besides meats and fish pieatr
ved by this method, nearly all the nmie
common and perishable trutls ana v. ge-
tuliles are canned and made available tor
food during the whole year. A canning
factory is one f Ihe mosl useful Bnd eco
nomical insliluiions lhat can be estab
lished iu an agricultural community.
The Drocess of preserving is now so well
understood, and the work is so thorough
ly done that tbe goods will keep ior
u half minute, when the are raised by

are dropped into two boxes at the lower
end of the tank. Two men manage the
scalding lank, and a boy distribute! tuc
fruit among the peelers within.
Thirty six women and girls attend to
this ileparliueiit. They ure arranged at
Ihe sides of troughs, elevittrd sufficiently
for convenience, each workman having
a pail and a box for the deposit of the
skins and refuse. Each tomato is peeled
and cleaned of all decay and green
around the stem. The price paid for
this work is 3 1 3 cents a pail, and the
day's work Is from 80 to 40 palls to eac h
operative, according to her skill and ac
tivity The pa;ls are carried try boys to
the steamer, which is upon an elev ile 1
platform, and discharges into the hopper
! for packing. The overseer of the stum
er carefully examines eacn pninui, s it
is spread nut. for any neglect among the
peelers, and removes the unripe portion
if any 1b found, She also gives a cher!:
foreiich pailful, which the boy retur'.s
to the operative, and these checks a r
the certificates of the amount of labor
performed.
From the steamer the tomatoes fall in
to a hopper, and then into 11m stuffer.
which is a cylinde worked by a treadle.
Tlie cans used here are quarts and gV
Ions, of which a large Hlock is kept m
nand in the loft above the packing Renin,
The cans are passed down to the packer
Ivy a trough, which is kepi constantly
full. The filling is done throutrh a bole
alHiut an inch and a bait in oiamiier lu
ihe top of each can. This hole is placed
over the end of the stuffer. and with a
slight pres-ure of the foot upon the
treadle, the packer fills his can. and near
ly excludes all ai' and water. The next
ip in the process is regulating tbe cans
for soldering. Homo of the cans arc a
