She dreamed that while searching under the counter for something she found Mrs. Harwich's lost pocketbook stuck away out of sight in a crevice in the floor. She paid no attention to the dream at first, but when she had the same dream the next night, she felt sure there was something in it, which belief was confirmed when the third night she dreamed the very same thing. To satisfy herself Mrs. Harper searched under the counter, and after a brief quest she discovered the missing pocketbook in a crevice in a dark' corner of the floor under the counter, the identical spot indicated in her dream, where It had evidently rolled off the counter the day Mrs. Harwich lost it Mrs. Harper was amazed, both at her dream and its strange fulfillment.

Mrs. Harwich rmmrHml th .rmnH o-irl wifh a cold, haughty stare. "I do not think I am mistaken, miss, she answered, "although I have no proof tha? you took the pocketbook. 1 laid it down for a moment on the counter, near the spot where yon were standing at the time, while I was examining some -ipKons, and when I went to get it it character made bright before the eyes of all Brookville. The other errand girl was dis missed ; she had been a poor successor to Dora, and Mrs. Harper was only too glad to let her go and re-engage Dora m ber place. Mrs. Harper never tires of telling about her strange dream to every customer at tha little store, and Dora is treated quite differently now by the people of Brookville. Bhe is quite a heroine. As for Mrs. Harwich, when she learned of the wonderful manner In which her missing property was unearthed, aha made an ample apology to Dora Hay for falsely accusing ber of stealing it Perhaps the knowledge of what an excellent case lor a lawsuit Dora had against ber assisted as much as anything in causing her to apologize 1 for the gross in justice she bad done the inno cent girt At ail events she made Dora a handsome present as a parital atonement for her mistake, and they are great friends. She became interested in the May family, and was a source of great assistance to them. The affair changed Mrs. Harwich's temperament a great deal, and taught her a much needed lesson. She is not so hasty to jump at con clusions now. Dora's parents were espe cially gratified by their daughter's vindica tion. Their strong sense of religion told them that Mrs. Harper's wonderful vision, and the strange way it proved Dora's innocence, was nothing less than the work of Providence; and tbey are nevor tired of telliug how their daughter's reputation was "Saved by a Dream."

I did not take it, neither did Mrs. Harper, therefore it must have been you, as them was nobody else besides us here to take it" ''But I did not take it," cried Dora May, as tears of mortification sparkled in her eyes. "I dont remember laying my eyes on your pocketbook. I was busy at that time wrap ping up some bundles, and had no oppor tunity to notice your pocketbook. It must have fallen under the counter out of sight somewhere." "A hkcly story," sneered Mrs. Harwich. Mra Harper glanced from one to the other in an embarrassed manner. The wealthy Mrs. Harwich was an excellent customer of hers. and she did not like to offend her; bat on the ! other hand she bad every confidence in her arrand girl's honesty, and could not believe that the had taken her customer's pocketbook. "Let us examine under the counter,' she aid, "and see if we can find the lost pocket book." So Mrs. Harper and her errand girl knelt down and searched everywhere under the connter for the pocketbook which had so mysteriously disappeared. The space under the counter of Mra Harper's store was oc cupied by a miscellaneous collection of bon net boxes, etc., packed in every way and covered with dust. These were pulled here and there, and a vigorous search for Mrs. Harwich's pocketbook begun. Especial at tention was paid to the spot where the article was last seen, but though Mrs. Harper and Dora searched among the boxes every where, they could not find the missing pocketbook. 'Of course not," sniffed Mrs. Harwich, when the result of the search was made known t- her. "I never for a moment ex pected that you would find it there. That wicked girl has no doubt stolen it, and in vented that silly story to conceal her theft. I would advise you to discharge ber." Mrs. Harper turned to Dora May with a grave expression on her face. "Dora," said she, kindly, "if you have taken this pocketbook, confess and return it, and yon will be forgiven." 'But I did not take it, Mrs. Harper," re peated the errand girl, indignantly. '"I have never seen it, as I told ypu before, and I do not know where it is." But Mrs. Harper was beginninz to doubt her word. Heretofore, during the time her errand girl had worked for ber she bad found her honest and trustworthy, but Mrs. Har per was a woman who did not trust anybody too implicitly. Besides, sbo knew that Dora May's parents were very poor, and she thought the sight of Mrs. Harwich's pocket book, which she probably thought contained a large amount of money, had excited her cupidity and tempted ber to steal it. She regarded Dora rather sternly. ''You must have taken that pocketbook, child," she exclaimed. "As Mrs. Harwich has said, nobody was here to take it but yon, and it did not fail under the counter, as you suggested, or we would have found it. Pro duce It at once, or tell us what you have done with it, you wicked girL" But Dora May could onlv reassert her utter Innocence of having taken the pocketbook, j and repeat that she knew nothing about it. ! She turned the pocket of her dress inside out, and exposed the contents to her employer's gaaa to show her that she spoke the truth and that she had no pocketbook. Mrs. Har per looked blank at this, and was disposed to believe Dora, but Mrs. Harwich dispelled her belief by remarking: Ohl she has not got it in her pocket, of course; these thieves are so sharp. She has probably hidden it in some safe spot until this affair blows over. But it doesn't matter much; fortunately there were only a few dollars in it. However, you must excuse ma I must go now, and will leave you to deal with this perverse girl as you think best." And with a parting adieu to Mrs. Harper the grand lady swept out of the store, while Mrs. Harper, convinced now of Dora May's guilt, and angry with her for denying it, summarily discharged her, and sent her home with a smirch on her character. Bo poor Dora went home and told her story, amid a flood of tears, to her parents, who gave her what sympathy tbey could. Dora's parents were religions people, and had full confidence in their daughter, and they told her to cheer up and things would come out all right So Dora dried np her tears and made the best of her position. There was plenty of work for her about the house and she was not idle. Bhe expected every day to receive some communication from Mrs. Harper, for Dora May told the truth when he said she had not taken the lost pocket book. She bad had nothing to do with It, but circumstances were against her, and on this evidence sbo bad been tried and con demned as we have seen. But Dora, well knowing her innocenoo of the cruel charge brought against her, felt that one day the lost pocketbook would be found and the stain upon her character removed. She was, therefore, happy in her innocence, and kept a brave heart, trusting that time would clear up the mystery. But days and weeks pasted, and she heard noth ing from Mrs. Harper. The latter bad se cured a new girl in Dora's place, and it looked as if Dora would rt"vtr return to the millin ery store. But alio kept her courage up, and prayed every night that the strange affair might be cleared up. Time passed, however, and her prayers were not answered. The people in Brookville, especially Mra Harper's customers, soon got wind of the affair, and when they met Dora in the street they bent severe glances upon her, which was very painful to the child. But Dora's troubles were destined to have an end. One day, six months after Dura had been so ignorainiously dismissed from Mrs. Harper's employ, she was dum founded by seeing tbut lady walk ing up the path leading to the May cottage. Admitting ber when she knocked, Dora's as tonishment was further increased when Mrs. Harper caught her around the neck, and kissing her, said, hvsterioally, "Oh, Dora, bow can you ever forgiva msf I entreat your pardon for the cruel way 1 treated you. I falsely accused you of taking Mrs. Harwich's pocketbook. You were innocent afcer all Dora, we found the pocketbook, bat in what a wonderful way." And she went on to say that Mrs. Harwich's tost pocketbook had been discovered under the most marvelous circumstances. It ap peared that ever since Dora had been dis charged Mra Harper had been thinking about her and her supposed dulwnesty. The subject troubled the milliner & trrmt WL 8 be disliked to believe that her trusted errand Clergymen Under a Ctoud. Said a well known clergyman to me the other day: "My experience is that, as a rule, clergymen are very cruel to a brother cler gyman who is under a cload, just as women are pitiless to a woman in trouble, and for the same reason. Some years ago a clerical friend of mine was accused of a disgraceful act He was not guilty, but for a time ap pearances were against him. In fact, it was morally impossible tb;it ho could be guilty. 1 And yet not one of his friends in the minis try except myself stuck up for him, and even I was ostracized by ray brethren for taking his part. In a short time, fortunately, his innocence was clearly proved, and then bis clerical brethren wero very anxious to show their friendliness to him. But he never forgave them for their cowardice. "The fact is, the average clergyman is so afraid of being compromised by scandal that he becomes a coward in such cases. Had my friend been a business man, none of his busi ness friends would have believed the charges against him. But we clergymen are very childish and womanish in many things. We are credulous where we should be incredu lous, and vice versa. 1 f I had the say in the matter, I would ertend the course of theo logical students by putting them for a year or two in some good business house, where they could learn a little of the hardheaded horso sense in which we parsons are so de ficient." -2s tw York Tribune.

In one of the most harmonious families of my acquaintance that is to say, in a home in which there bt absolutely no conflict, in which the haushold machinery moves without jar or break breakfast is one of the most enjoyable meals of the day; first, be- j cau.e it is always punctually served; second, because all the family assemble at one time, and third, and by no means least, because the mistress of the home understands the secret of setting a refined table. Flowers ereet the eye, and even in later fall and winter something in the shape of floral decoration is always obtainable, even if it be but an unpre tending pot of geranium; the china and glass, although by no means costly or valuable, ara quaint and pretty ; the loth is of crimson for tbeearly nual.au innovation to which I have become accustomed, nud the napkins are of the same order, the reason given being that fruit stains 'and fruit is never absent from her table) are inevitable. At first all ber acquaintances imagine that she spends lavishly in her housekeeping. whereas the fact is that she is a rigid eeono- j mist tn tbo true nense, and saves, not by going without, or even by purchase of Inex pensive materials, but by her knowledge of values and thrifty use of the various articles she buys. There is obsolutaly no waste, even of bread, and the preparation of food is con sidered by her from tiie artistic standpoint. tier rouluji pans arc of curious shape, her butter pats are "not pa,'1 but dainty shells or leaves or scrolls, bur dishes are often deco rated with pay leaves, parsley plays a pre dominant part, too, and tbo very eggs in their crude white shells apnenr in such dainty cups that they serve a dwraive purpose. Breakfast in ber idea sboulu not bea beaw meal; and while expense is not necessarily an object to her, sho is a true economist from conviction, and provides for her family with a view to giving the utmost nourishment in the lightest shape.

It depends, then, altogether upon the two Individuals making and maintaining the mar riage whether It i3 a thing of blessing or of banring. Two people' who are cflch naturally unselfish, or who love each other sufficiently to cultivate unselfishness, or who are unsel fish from principle, may make marriage state of beatitude, and two people who think each of bis or ber own especial comfort can make it worm than a purgatorial condition. And that would hold true not only of mar riage, but of any other association, bond, or partnership. Where husband and wife hare learned to forbear ever so little, to strive for each other's joys rather than for their own rights, to re speot each other's personality, then their unity U a bliss ot which the unmarried mind can form so idea; they grow to have one wish, almost to know each other's thought before speaking', while each can maintain sufficient of that individuality which prevents stafna (dod and affords variety and vivacity, and all the time they turn to one another with that absolute assurance of sympathy which gives to each all the comfort that a whole. encircling, supporting and sympathbdirg uni verse might do.
