" I have got pome news for you. 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
" Promoted, yon little goose ! No one
ever gets promoted ia the British army.
" 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.

came. "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
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
" Are you ? Oh, I see. then, that is
the reason I have not seen you before, I
.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
" 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
"All right, Torn, put it down ; that's

ho Opened tho duui tor them aud shut it
after them.
" Oh, Alic !" she said, in fear and
" 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
"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
" 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
" 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
Of course there was no rejoicing on
the part of Maria, but, notwithstanding,
Alic and Maggie were married within a
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
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

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

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

the glory of the golden belt, and the

but," he continued, speaking with a hes

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

" 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

"It is lie, Hamlet, the Dane," said
the sad passenger.'
What wilt thou do for him, Laer

" 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

"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.
"Chicago Bob sits down for no man !"
was the reply.
"Sit down, Robert." continued the
elder, as he put his baud on the loafer's
" 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"
"Are yon really seeking faith?"
"You bet I aiu'l If faith helps a man
to get in his work as quirk as you did
yesterday, I am bound to bavs it, if I
have to sell my bat I"
He didn't gel it v strong, but he
did no mors crowing while the meeting
lasted. L'tioa Oturvrr.

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

a relapse, to t peak medically. Surgery
was in ill-repute, and Spreugel tells us

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
