Kate Raymond and Florence
Brooghton, like a great many others ,
were promenading lite hulls of a large
l.uildii g ?ber? nil annual fair was
held, giving the young people the
opportunity of exhibiting themselves
and enjoying each others 'Society, and,
on the pitscnt occasion^ affording an
agreeable recreation to the young
ladies of the hoarding school located
in M-. Misse? Raymond and
Bnmghton were among the number
tl.u- associated, and, t gelber with an
intimate friend, Annie Milnor, were
in attendance at the fair.
Florenc e was a sparkling br?nett e,
with a very nltrae'ivo beauty and
engaging manners. Her companion
was not nt aII remarkable in appear
ance, possessing a rather passive face
with no distinct lines of beauty en
graved on it, ami, if n stranger, you
would not think of looking twice un
less you caught the earnest express
ion deep down in her quiet, thought'
fill eyes, which were dark-gray, and
half hidden beneath long, dusky
lashes. Those who know her well,
were accustomed to watch the chan
ges there, as noW they brightened
with interest, gleamed with mis h'tef,
or deepened into a far-away, wistful
gnzo. Of a sociable, lively disposi -
tion, gay very often,still her friends
felt, rather than spoke of an under! n
ahlc reserve that pervaded her con
duct , especially was this seen in the
disguise of her real sentiments, which
were always cloaked under wit, sat ire ,
or nonsense, rendering it almost im
possible to tell when she was in earn -
est, as the most serious opinions given
on important subjects were often
times contradicted by a sparkle of
the eye, while a light, jesting man
ner might conceal deep feeling. One
of the girls once said she was an
enigma, but Florence, who saw most
of her, and ought to have known
most, said she was a different and more
diflicolt kind of puzzle; for the most
of people by patience and study, could
work out an enigma, but she would
defy any body with a knowledge of
human nature greatly inferior to that
of the Hard of Avon to make out
Kate Raymond. Therefore, when
Kate expressed her disinclination for
an introduction to Annio Milnor's
brother, and gave uttoranco to the
remarks recorded abovo, Fiorenco
did not upderatand her as usual, and
knew she would receive no further
enlighten merit. Now this brother
occupied u large space in his aft'sc- |
tioimto sister's heart, and often bad
Iiis praise been sounded in the oars of
Ktite nnd Florence, who, consequent*
ly felt no little coiiri ?it.y res ose tin *
tins paragon uf fratei nnI excellence,
and were quite p Seined when inf irm
ed by Annie ol his ox pout cd attend
ance at the appmnohiug festival.
Indeed, according to a fashion ?h?te
popular among school girls', ho had
boon gi\en to Kate, an.I many wer??
ihc messages exchanged between them
through the medium of A nnio's letters,
so I lint his name became quite a
familiar word with her, and any
thing especially pleas ng was im
mediately pronounced tobe "Jimmy"
widen she said, \yaa the only 'slang
expression among the many current
at boarding school: she thought he?
coining to tt young lady. Consequent
ly, when ?lasreceived the information
that. Mr. jiininic Milnorwus in -
and would most probably, ba pre
sented on the morrow, her courage
sank nearly to zero, it never did
quite get there, as self-posse ision was
a trait she greatly admired and culti
vated; however, she telt Considerable
misgivings as his traits and capabili
ties of repression were unknown,
nevertheless, if there was any sacri
fice of dignity or formality, she re
solved it wou'd not proceed from her.
Florence anticipated a great deal of
fun over the introduction and was
positively chagrined when the first
attempt failed. Annie [met her
brother at the entrance. Kate was
immediately pointed out ami an in
troduction sought. She was standing
in a group talking whuu he approach
ed with his .sister and spoke to Flor
ence, who had passe 1 the prelimi
naries necessary to an acquaintance
already. So soon as she heard their
voices, Kate turned away,but moving
too hastily, her parasol came in con
tact with somebody's arm, and fell 1
from her hands. Verv indite!v, Mr.
Milnor sprang forward and-restore! j
.?it,, and_J.ecej\yd_ a .my^: ^ jjfili'rjjy
spoken "thank you" in return from
Miss Raymond, who huriiodly moved j
off, disregarding the rail of Annie, I
and dragging the unwilling Florence
with her, who, so so.,n as tiny were
unheard by the others, inquired what,
her companion meant by snob eon
duct so contradictory to what might
have been expecte I, and received the |
; reply with which this episode is com- j
inenccd. Whc i their conversation I
i was suddenly brought to a pause hv |
the ejaculation from Kate, the latter j
found herself lace to face with the
smiling young gentleman, and was i
dimly conscious of liowing*f!i a dazed, j
confused nuiunei as Im- was formally j
presented, and ine nett moment be- I

voice that was .-a\ii g how often its
owner had Im an! oi her through his
sister, and how uuxi us he was to
meet one. in whose praise so much
had been spoken. She maintained
her part of the conversation very
creditable, though afterwards she di I
I not remember whether ho liked
I promenading or serenading best. Hir
ing his stay in .M-, he called
several times, and was really a very
pleasant und entertaining conversa
tionalist, she taiid when Florence ask
ed her opinion of him, but no more
messages were exchanged. Indeed,
no one would have dreamed that two
such dignilic.1 and eminently proper
persons had ever been guilty of such
nonsense?they never bad said a word
about each other before, of course not.
"The world rolls ever round and round,
And time rolls over by,"
so by its inevitable mutations, our
friends, Kate, Annie, nnd Florenco,
found themselves no longer careless,
uninteresting, light-hearted school
girls, but young ladies received into
society with the usual eel it, and
according to an old promise, renew
ed theiv intimacy by exchanging
visits. Kate and Annie visited
Florence first and after an interval of
several mouths, they nil met again at

herself and command her voice, she
demanded with angry inperiousness,
" A bo arc you. sir, and what do you
mean by treating a lady in such n

lie stared at her with such blank

Kate resorted to her handkerchief to

We have a certainty, not a p sdbility

which is tu be becomes as linn reality
as that which lias been Hope is
truer than history. The future is not
cloudlaud, but solid, fruitful soil, on
which wo nitty plant a firm foot.
And therefore the habit of living
in the future should make us glad
und confident. We should not keep
the contemplation >! another stato of
existence to make us sorrowful, nor
allow the transiency of this presen t
to --bade our joys. Uur hope should
make us buoyant, and should k eop

Pickled In a Boiling Spring.
How Tom Collcto and His Two Companions
Enjoyed a Hot Bath.
Tom Collettc is a miner, teamster,
coal burner, or anything else that is
necessary when he finds that bis pock
et is growing empty and his larder
lean. Tom, with two friends, Joe
and Jake, was making a painful
journey from Pine Grove, in Esmer
alda county, to eastern Nevada. They
camped one afternoon by some hot
springs near Walker lake, and dis
covering a ho'e half ful! of cold water
near one of the hottest springs, turn
ed the hot water, as' it flowed out of
the spring, into the hole, until the
hot and cold water blending .nade
exactly the right temperatuic for a
bath. Then they plunged in ami en
joyed the delieious water as only those
can who have traveled over dusty
alkali roads for several days. When
they had eaten their supper and
lighted their pipes, the theme of con
versation for a long time while they
smoked was their bath and the
wonderful refreshment which it had
brought them. They spread their
blankets on a grassy spot behind
some willows, a few yards away from
the springs, and fell asleep.
Tom was up with the dawn. The
memory of the bath was fresh in his
mind, and so he bounded lrom his
blankets, and, with a skip and a jump,
plunged into the clear water and
sank to bis neck. Then came a howl
of anguish, and he sprang upon the
bank with all the agility of a wild
cat. In the meantime, his fair skin
had changed to the co'or of a pickled
lobster. The hot water had been
running all night; all the cold water
had been neutralized hours before the
dawn, and now the water in th?i hole
was almost ot the same temperature
as tho water in the boiliug spring
from w hich it flowed. Tom was in a
terrible state. He says: "I thought
I was pickled." But he did not hesi
tate as to the ef.urac he should pur
sue. ~*~ j*"* " "_' T"'TT"
With infinite caro he drew on his
pants and boots. Forcing back tears
of anguish, he managed to walk back
to camp. Though it wrung his heart,
he put on his old-time frank smile as
he neared the rendezvous, for Jake
was just then sitting up in bis blank
ets;, gaping and stretching. Seeing
Tom approach, Juke asked where he
had beeu. Tom replied that the
recollection of the maguificent bath
of the previous evening was sj vivid
in bis memory that he could not
think of breaking camp without re
penting it, and added: "It's just
lovely, Jake."
Jake did not wait to hear more,
but sprang from his bed and rushed
away toward the spring. As swiftly
as Tom could, he lollowed, and from
behind the willows kept covert watch.
He saw Jake throw offhifl few clothes,
spring into the water, heard a yell of
anguish, and then snw him with
wonderful haste emerge and spring
upon the bank, and vainly try, by
swift applications of his hands to
different points of his body, to arrest
the intolerable pain, howling all the
At last Jake managed to get into
his clothes and started for camp.
Meeting Tom, he began with fierce
invective to upbraid him for his de
ception, i Jut Tom cut him short in
an instant. "Hush up," .^aid he,
' would you bawl like a calf and give
us away when I want to cook that
other chap up in camp?"
Soothed by this, Jake grew quiet
and both leisurely proceeded to camp.
By this time Joe had commenced to
rouse up, and seeing the others ap
proach, asked them where they had
been. Tom answered cheerfully (he
was holding bis pantaloons away from
his body atthe time: "Do you think
we could break camp without one more
magnificent swim ? Not much."
At this, Joe, getting up.criod :
"Not much, you bet!" and dashed
away toward the spring.
As ho disappeared behind the wil
lows, Tom sprang for his pistol, and
said to Jake: "Getyour gun quick;
it will mean business when Joe coiner .

come. He was yelling furiously, and
never stopped until he caught up Iris
"Drop it," say ; Tom. "I have a

Educating an Army.
Gen. MeClellan says, inSeriuher.
that when one of the khudive's Ameri
can officers had been some months in
JLgypt, the khedive sent for him one
day, and asked him what.was the
worst thing he had observed in regard .
to the army. He replied that it \yai
that the regiments were commanded
by civilians. '1 lie khedive said:
"No, there is a cnloftcl for every regi
ment." "Yes," said the American,
"but each colonel, chief of b?ttdlipu,
and captain has a civilian clerk who
controls everything relating to the
pay, rations and clothing of the men,
and whoever does that really com
mands." "Yuu are rigl t," said the
khedive, "but how would you correct
this?" "By requiring that the colo
nels should have sergeants as their
clerks; the chiefs of battalions, corpor
als; the captains, private soldiers; aud.
also requiring that the officers should .
supervise and do much of the real
work themselves" "That means
that the army should learn reading
aud writing and arithmetic!" "That
is exactly what I was coming at,
your highness." The khedive re
flected for a in uncut, and then at
once wrote an order to the minister
of war, requiring; that from that mo
ment no person in the army (either
officer or soldier) should be promoted
until he was master of reading writ
ing and arithmetic. The consequence
was that th<3 whole army became a

The treasurer of the United States
furnishes the following description of
the recent counterfeit five dollar notes
on the Central German aud Union ;
National batiks of Chicago, a?d the
Farmers' National Bank of Virginia,
III. Thcs3 counterfeits were made
from the same plate as the "Trader"
of Chicago, and are printed in this
way : Tne counterfeiters printed a
number of notes from the "Trader's"
plate, leaving the word's "National
Bank of J llinois," and as a number
of these notes are still in the hands of
! the counterfeiters, they are enabled,
I by having the title printed in, to
I make a new counterfeit. This is the
way the fives on the A urora, Canton,
Faxten and Peru banks were made.
AW genuine live dollar notes on the
Central ami German National banks
of Chicago, have the name of Jno.
Allison as register, while counterfeits
have the name of S. B. Colby as
register. All genuine fives on tho
Union National Bank of Chicago are
dated January 14, lSo?; the counter
feits arc dated May 10, 1863. All
genuine fives on the Farmers' Nation
al Bank of Virginia, 111., are dated
September 1, 1SC5; the counterfeits
art- dated May 10, 186*5. The publio
will do well to examine carefully all
fives Illinois banks, as somo of
these unfinished bills are still in ex
istence and can be readily changed
into a new counter.eil.
