Mas:- gie," Le said, one day. about eighteen months alter he had gained his cwmiais sion. " Guess what it is." They were walking along the green lanes of Perlufk, listening to the cease less nuirraur of the sea, as at intervals they had walked and listened ever since they could remember ; at any rata, she was six years younger than her former p! ay-fellow. " You are going to be promoted," she said. " Promoted, yon little goose ! No one ever gets promoted ia the British army. Guess-again." " You are going f.o many an heiress." There was a lump ia her throat as she said it. " Wrorg again. No estimable young pei son witli green eyea, a turn up nose, susceptible heart and 50,0(J0 a year has turned up yet. But it's something near ly as good. I am ordered to China." " On, Alic ! " she gasped, and burst into tcfljrs. It was very foolish of hur, but then she was only 16, aud had not yet acquired the praiseworthy art of concealing her feelings. 'Vuy, whatever are you crying for?" he linked, and kissed away her tears. He'd kissed her ever since she was 5, aud thought no more of it than if she had been Lis. sister, cr the cat, except ing, perhaps," that it was nicer which it was, no doubt " I shall only be away five yeais at most, aud when I come back I'll briug you a pig-tail, and an ivory tooth-p;ok, aud a wholo lot of things, and " ' Yrs," she said, listening attentively. " But then you'll ba a young woman I forget aud 'out,' and all that sort of thing, and won't condescend to speak to a poor Liontenant ; you will have all the Squires and fox-hunters about the place at your fet." "Oh !"no, indeed, I shall not, Alic," she said, eoperly. "But I tell you you will. I believe you are a bora little flirt, and I shall come back and find " But she burst into tenrs again, and put up her pretty little hand to stop Iris teasing, which she cou d not bear just then. It seemed so cruel of him to laugh and joke when he was going away -for rive years. He did not seem to care a bit, and she cou'd have broken her heart upon the spot, and thrown away the pieces, so as never to be bothered .villi it ag;;ia. Then, seeing her mourn ful blue eyes, he was mercilul. " I believe I shall come back and find on just as (ireat a little darling as you are now, and, if we've got any money, we'lljget married aud livehappyeveraftt-r, ud if we haven't we'll get married and starve ever after unless, of course, the heiress turns up." " Oh, I hope she won't !" said Maggie, like a truthful little idiot. -l.Dn ..... t:. " mv-. : dear?" , , , , .

"Perhaps it takeH loncrer for a letter to get here from Umua, sue thought, knowing as little about the means of transit and the time it took as if the. Celestial city had been in the moon. But a year passed, and yet no letter came, and Maggie journeyed into womanhood, but no word or sign came from Alic Granger, and at last she gave liim up altogether. Maggie was 20 years old when her father died, and the creditors pounced down, and she and h. r mother were sold out. Mrs. Dunlop was oilered a houw iu London by a sister, who was well off and bad tempered, and it was thankfully accepted. Maggie went as governess into the family of a Mrs. Marshall, of Woolwich. Mrs. Marshall's daughter by her fir.st husband was really mistress of the es tablishment, for Mary Patterson had a strong will and she was an heiress. "A very nasty heiress, too," poor Margie thought, and she was right, for Maria was skinny, and thought herself sarcas tic, aud always said veiy nasty things to people who did Hot dare to" 6ay them back again. One evening, when Maggie hail been about a year at Woolwich, and she wa-i sitting alone in her school-room as usual, for the pupils had just said good-night and been delivered to the tender mercies of their nurse, Miss Patterson walked in very much dressed aud rather flushed and excited. "Miss Duulop." she said, "we shall ! have a few friends this pvtrj!nr and 1 .know one or two of thnm liktT'.in im- proniptu dauce; will jou be ready to come iu to the dra '.vine-room and play if we should waut you ?" Iu the evening she put ou her shabby black gown, and stuck a spray of white flowers in her golden hair, aud waited patiently for the summons. When it came, with a roll of music under her arm, a flush on her innocent, frightened face, and a scared, almost humed, ex pression ia her eyes, she descended and timidly opene 1 the drawing-room door, and there stood still for a momt nt, star ing in astonishment. There 6at the heirees, with au easrer, pleased expres sion on her face, and lean ug over her, talking and laughing, and more hand some than ever, and sunburnt and soldierly-looking, was Alic Granger. The color rus led to Maggie's face, as if to say a hurried 'Rood-by, and then left it altogether. She recovered self posses sion, however, and walked with what she flattered hcrsslf was great dignity toward the piauo. She felt rather than saw him raise his head and look at her, and the next moment she saw him by ner siue. "Maggie my dear Masaio 1 Whv. fancy you being here; where did you come from ? I have been trying to find you out for mnnths." "1 thought you and then she did not know how to go on, ro added, al most piteous! v, "I am the governess here." " Are you ? Oh, I see. then, that is the reason I have not seen you before, I suppose." .Do vou real'v know Miss Dunlop? the heiress asked, coming vp and speak ing in her coolest manner. Maggie wished sincerely she could sink iuio her shoes and bury herself. . V ny, ot course I do ; we have been play-fellows ever sinoe we were born haven't wo, Maggie ?" . Aud Majrgie, fo.ilaig that she was backed up, answered bravely : " y es. " Oh, indeed, how interesting!" then turning to Maggie : " Will you be so Rood as to begin a waltz, Miss" DunU p ? This was to be our dauc, I think," to Alic, end sha tailed oS with him tri umphantly. He carae to her directly after the dnce as over. . " I went down to Porlock to try and dud out where you had goae to,'' he 3aid, " but nobody knew." "It didn't mitter," she said, huskily, letting her fingers wander vaguely over the keys to make believe she wasn't very much interested in what he said. " Yes, it did it mattered a great deal. Why, I have got a box full of euri; si ties fov you Ciubs to fiulit with, and a lit tl e heathen ged o.-two, and a statue of Buddha and all sorts of things. I told you I should bring you them home. Do you live here I mean in this hou-e ?" He said these last words under his breath, for the heiress came up, and he was carried off to dance with Mrs. Somebody at the other end of the room, but not before Maggie had nodded a reply to him. Soon after this Miss iratterson came up to the piano and, saving that she wished to play herself, aud that Maggie looked tired, dismissed her without being able to get another look at Alic. The next morning, to Maggie's verv great surprise, Mii-s Patterson came into the school-room beiore the ctu iuren had assembled. " Miss Dunlop," she said stiffly, should like to kiftw where you say you met Air. Granger. "At Perlook. His uncle lived next door to my mother. Hf is a very old friend, indeed " Thank you. I merely wished to in quire, because, of course, you must be aware that it is not u.-.iial for any one in your position to make herself remarka ble by liavme long confidence talks with any gentleman who may visit the nuse. "I don't know what vou mean, M.83 Patterson," Mag;;io said, indignantly, But Miss Patterson had swept out of the roum without deigning to reply. Then Maggie went into her little room; the one p'aee she had in the world entirely to herself, and cried ti.l her eyes were red and her head auhed. The lessons did not progress that morning. Maggie was thinking of Alic, who was no doubt strolling about the common lustennig to the band End mak ingloveto the heiress. The children were more than usually stupid, too, and all the world seemed upside down, and all its wavs turned crooked. Suddenlv. at about 12 o'clock, just when Maggi. was m the middle i f expounding ns bes she could the eccentricities of the French grammar, there was a knock at the school-room door. . "Come in," she said. The door opened, and there stood be fore her astonished eyrs the furm of Alic wronger, aud behind him was a man evidently his servant with a box on his shoulders. "All right, Torn, put it down ; that's right ; now lie o'X There, I've brought the curiosities round, Maggie; I thought you would like to se them." " Oil I What will Mrs. Marshall and Al.ss i'altersou say t said Auio, iu j -. . i Notui!i' to vou for to, next hull I l.our or s , jf 1 h it jiN i iii , tin lr t t is i, m , . u' i .f v A jP et i '; 1 i i ' ' , ti r u i 'v. fjux4nmMis, Ms-ill.-s it.iur.-aa hour; run along, my httle dears," and ho Opened tho duui tor them aud shut it after them. " Oh, Alic !" she said, in fear and trembling. " Oh, Maggie !" he answered, mim icking, " what did you mean by going away from Perlock, and not leaving any address ?" "I couldn't help it, and you never wrote." "No, I never write letters; don't know how to spell well enough. But I have been hunting for you all over the place, and never dreamed of finding you here. Now we'll unpack the box; I had it opened before I came; so it's only fastened by a lock." "But, Alic, they'd never forgive me." " Never mind; it doesn't matter, be cause if you are good I'll take you away next week. Beside-, they'll forgive me anything. I saved the Colonel's life when he was in Hong Kong at least so he says. There, now, what do you think of these for fighting with? Got them at Jivaon purpose fi-r you," and he held up a pair of heatheni.-h-looking clubs and brandished them over her head, aud then proceeded to pull out the rest of the contents of the box and to deoorate the school-room with them. "There's Mr. Buddha, and there's why, what's the matter, Mapgie?" " Nothing, only yon will get me into into dreadful trouble yon will, indeed ; Miss Patterson came iu th s morning and scolded nie for talking to you last irk'ht." " Never mind, she's only jealous." he laughed. "Now, tell me how soon you can leave here. "What for?" she asked, innocently. "Why. you haven't forgotten that we agreed to get married when we came back, have you, little coquette ?" and he put his arm around her waist, just as of old, and was not reproved. It was o very comfortable, she thought. "No; but you are engaged, are you not?" " Yes, of course, I am to you," "Oh, but, Alic" " Oh, but, Maggie" And then he stopped aud kissed her, and nothing more could be said, for the door opened and there stood the Colonel, and there stood Maria Patter son. Of course there was no rejoicing on the part of Maria, but, notwithstanding, Alic and Maggie were married within a month. A Desperate Struggle. "Halt! Who goes there?" shouted long, lank Confederate soldier, sittin upon a sorrel horse, toying with - double-barreled shotgun, the favorite weapon of the Western bushwhacker in the' early war time. He was the" picket guarding the camp of Dick McCann, one of the most &prr. of the Confederate cavalrymen. The bivouac rested in the security of his vigilance in a piece of woods a mile or so to the lett of the turnpike leading from Gallatin to Nash ville, Xenn. The picket stood where the country road which led past MeCann's camp made its junction with the turn pike. He evidently challenged the cav alry approaching liom the direction of Gallatin as a matt r of form, for as the officer approached him in response to his command, " Advance and give the coun tersign," his shotgun lay upon his lap, acro-s the pommel of his saddle, while he was paying more attentii-n to his comrade w ho was coming up the wagon read with two chickens iu one hand, the plunder of an uuofficial forage, and an unruly horse iu the other, than he did in the officer responding to his chal lenge. The Federal soldier got within a few feet of him before he teemed to re cognize the possibility of an enemy be ing nearer tnau Nashville. The dress first attracted his attention, for he saw that it was not that of a Confederate, and, hurriedly bringing his - shotgun to bear upou the officer, ho ci iamunued: " Halt ! What regiment do you be long to?" " To the Fourth Michigan cavalry," replied the ofiicer. Covering the officer with his shotgun as he pas-ed around to surrender him self, the Confederate fif,aiu commanded, "G.ve me your arms !" The officer, who wore a heavy over coat with a long cape, dropped the reins upon Ids horse's neck, pushed his hand under his overcoat to un buckle his saber and comply with the demand. The Federal soldier's horse being thus left at liberty crowded against that of the Confederate, and, believing his game was already ia hand, he laid his shotgun down across his saddle to re ceive the arni3 of his captive. Hardly had he done this befi-re the Federal soldier saw his opportunity, and,, throw ing his left hand quickly undei the cover of his cape, struck the' muzzle of his shotgun and knocked it to the ground and with the same movement caught the Confederate by his long, flowing hair, pulled his bend upon hisfcreast, whipped his revolver from its pouch, placed it against his body and tired. The ham mer of the revolver caught in the fold of the 1 ng cape which hung from the Con federate's shoulders and did not explode. He drew it back, raised the hammer again, aud made another attempt to se cure the Confederate. This time it got between his body and arm, and, although it did not miss fire, the Confederate was in injured and in the tussle escaped. All the work of a minute, for the had shouted to his, command, ,-ard ! " the moment he had grap- . :T. one of MeCann's private sol But by the time it had arrived idler was going down the road at biiMii-SiSck" speed, while his comrade wiib. the two chickens lor the morning's breaktast had mounted his horse aud was following him hurried! v. The little command passed on to Nashville as rap idly at possible, without stopping to do more than to pick up the so.'dier's shot guu to send tome as a souvenir of the eocap-ue. Gross Superstitions, In my grandfather's family the old cook was accustomed to bake cakes in large rounds, which she cut into four with a sharp knife, each quarter being put to bake by itself. She was most careful that during baking the pointed end oi each of these quarters should not be broken, otherwise a death might shortly be expected. Even the slipping of a piece of soap from a person's hands when washing has been construed to mean that the death of some relative is imminent, as, indited, is also the persist ent burning of a fire on one side only of 4JWe grate ... m--. rverv- n-a Knows tiv.i t i r"-T2 ic T ... ,'-.., '.v j " , g lo. -dval, 11 Uie houae-aoor is closed upon the corpse before the Iriends have come out to take their places in- the carriages, Sheffield people say another deuth will happen before many days ;- and if, at a funeral where the mourners walked, the procession went in a scattered or strag gling manner, this was thought in tne West of Scotland to betoken the same misfortune. Even if the mourners walked iuickly, the omen was bad. - To walk under a ladder betokens misfort une, if not hanging, as it dues in Hol land. To meet a luneral when going to or coining from a marriage was consid ered very unlucky in Lanarkshire; for if the funeral was that of a woman, the newly-made wife would not live long ; and, if it was that of a man, the fate of the bridegroom was sealed. If one heard a tingling in his ears, it was the "deid bells," and news of the death of a friend or neighbor might soon be ex pected. 11 knocks were heard at the door of a patient's room, aud no person was found theTe when the door was opened, there was little chance of re covery ; and, if a mau caught a glimpse of a person he knew, and found, on looking out, that he w is nowhere to be seen, this was, says Mr. Napier, a sign of the approaching death of the person seen.

It is absolutely imjMWsible that you can form a true idea of this hideous sninml, tinl-es you keep tout eve fixed oonio." Immigrants. " Immigrants,'' the fat passenger said, speaking with his head out of the win dow, " are grand things for a new State; they are the bone and sinew of our coun try; they are the hope aud strength of the State; our doors are open to them, and our hearts ory welcome!' when they come; they are the wealth of the frti.i tier, the development of the republic, the glory of the golden belt, and the support of the Liand Commissioner; but," he continued, speaking with a hes itating utterance, his attention and thoughts being distracted somewhat by a hot cinder as big as a goose egg in each eye, " but they are not, and I have ever maintained it, they aro not really pleasant and attractive traveling com panions. " You are entirely correct, oh patient and most observant of men." the Jester replied with a groan. A Danish lady with three children was endeavoring to Bbare the Jeste-'s seat, and the Danish baby was crawling over his lap to look out of the window. Now the Jester loves babies, indeed he doss, but he is not a very go 'J"r-irse, and this iiti.ls Dan ish baby, poor little thing, hadn't been bathed for two weeks, aud it3 face hadn't been scrubbed for a month, whereas, had justice been done, it should have had a bath ten minutes after the train started. The Jester must have looked discour aged or severe, for the baby, halting on its wandering way to the window, looked up into his face. Then the grimy, plump little lips quivered, and the suck ling Hamlet began to cry in good strong Danish. ' "It is lie, Hamlet, the Dane," said the sad passenger.' What wilt thou do for him, Laer tes ? " asked the tall, thin , passenger. " Woo't weep? woo't right? woo't fast? woo't tear thyself ? woo t drink up JEsil ? eat a crocodile ? " "Nay, an' thoult mouth," said the Jester, " he'll rant as well as thou." And then he climbed over the back of the seat and left the Danes in undisput ed possession, while he sat down beside a boy who ate apples and gingerbread until he became sea-sick ; and then an old woman, going down the aisle for a dink of water, fell against tha side of the car goin round a curve, and bent a very soft-biiled egg she had in her hand against the panel, bent it all out of hape ; and then, as though the sad spectacle of that blighted egg was au inspiration of hunger, every last immi grant in that car hauled out a' lunch tr im box or ba sket or gram bag and be gan to eat, until the air was heavy with the sound of bre4 crumbs and stowage and cheese and corned beef and onions and things. And there was so escape from it, because these immigrants that come into Kansas travel on first-class tickets, as a rule, especially on the North and South roads. It's unreason ble to grumble about it. Poor immi grants, they can't help it ; they're not really fond of dirt.but there should be some provision made by the railway companies for their convenience and comfort Bob Burdrtte. "Sit Down, Robert" Eider Traverse was ouce the most noted men in Eastern New York as a camp-meeting leader. He had a pon tr ful voice and was a fluent speaker, and in the prime of life could get away with any man who ever sought to disturb hi meetings. The elder was once holding a camp-meeting at Ybukers, and word reached him that a notor.ons rough, known as "Chicago Bob," intended to be on hand Sunday for a row. He made no reply ajid took no prvcnntion, but when Bob appeared on the grounds, with a cigar in his mouth, and a slung shot up his sleeve, the elder didn't pale worth a cent Bob had come out there to run things, ani he took a forward seat. When the crowd began to siug, he begau crowing, aud thus created con fusion : "Robert, you had better sit down," observed the elder, as he came forward.

" Hero goes to clean out the crowd !" crowed Bob, as he pulled o3' his coat. Next instant the elder hit him under the ear, and, as he fell over a bench, he was followed up and hit a,ain and again, and, while in a semi-uneonscious state, he was carried off by his friends. Next .day he was the first to come for ward for prayers. The elder put his hand ou his head and said : . , " Robert, are you iu earnest 7" "lam." "Are yon really seeking faith?"

In his own country the frugal Jap lives in a house of no more than four rooms one lor eating, sleeping and tit ting, one for cooking, odo for bathing and one to spare. He never wears boots nor brings mud into the house. He and ins family sit on the floor when they eat, and take the r meals at a low table, the floor of their dining and sitting roum is covered with clean, soft mats, upon whi h at night cotton comforters are tpread to sleep under. Such a house can be built and iurn:shed for $100, and, though cheap and small, is comfortable. The bath, found in almost all laborers' ln usrs, is in daily use.

A Doctor's Liability. It is related, as a legend of the medi-" cal fraternity, that the Emperor Angus-' tus was once so highly pleased at a cure effected in himself by his doctor, An tonius Musa, tnat he raised that gentle man to the rank of Knight, and relieved the whole profession from the burden of taxation. . , Probably at no time before or since that event has the lot of the physician been such a happy one. In the earlier cays of Koine the practice oi medicine was despised arid confined to the hum bler ranks of society and to slaves. Not until the influence of Grecian civiliza.' tion made itself felt in' the Roman cap ital did physicians gain honor or stand ing. In the middle ages the calling suffered a relapse, to t peak medically.

Rust Preventive. m A new method of promoting the stf face of iron from rust has been brong! forward by Mr; Wan', of London. 'i'L new "inoxidizing " process, as it termed, consists m coiebining a si'ioa with the metal bv the aid of LeJ .isvit Cast or wrought-irun objects are hrt coated, by painting or dipping, with a sflicate giaze, which quickly dries, and the ai tides are then passed through a furnace, or rather oven. In this way the silicate composition is r-aid to be fused and absorbed into the metal, which upon cooling is fou:id to havrf as sumed a dull, black appearance. Ta coating is said to be so iar homogeneous with the metal as to protect it from any change from loi'g exposure to the at mosphere; and, at the same time, tha. silicate is not liable to disintegrate or separate from the iron. The articles treated in this manner may be orna mented by combining the silicate wash with any ritrifiable colors. Tims smooth-polished colored surfaces may be produced npon iron, which, while possessing features distinct from ordi nary enameling, yet present superior and more durable resulU than those ob tainable by ordinary painting and var nishing, Saient jic American.
