"Now that wo understand eub otner, la
us shako hands and t friends."
"That's it."
Their hands met In a firm grasp.
They looked, into each other's faess, ont
tvith a merry cwinkle in bis eye and a brord
smile over his jovial features: the othe- -with
a glance lorg drawn out, grave and solemn,
that seemed to cast a. shadow ot glooBr-op-everything
oboe tt ho scene.
"You'll do year best, and Til do my best
That's what we've- agreed, 0iiUmVlvZip-l
TifkinsP
"That's it, Ben Button, and whichever of
us wins, the other shall bear no ill will
"Just so, Zip."
"And everything except murder shll b
counted fjirf"
"Eh?"
"And murder, too, if jou ars willing to
tako the consequences."
'Say, Zip, bold onl"
'So' if I should put joq out of my way
right here," continued Ziri, without seeming
to notice the interruption, and drawing a
small pistol out of bis boot leg as he spoka,
'aud it would never be found out on me, why
it would be all right."
"But, Zip, say"
"Or if it were found out." Zip still ctn
tinued, raising the pistol higher and high
till it pointed straight for Ben's breast, "am.
I were willing to tako all therlbto get clear
which I think I am ready to do, -shy that,
too, would be all right."
'Hello! Beu, where are you going?" shouted
Zip, as tho former turned and ran down tht
road at what seemed to be almost breakneck
speed, frequently casting scared and anxious
glances behind him.
Gen, however, did not stop to answer, but
kept strcizht on until he was lost to sight in a
bend of the road, while Zip, bending almost
double with laughter, sent peal after peal oi
nierriuiKiS ringing out on the balmy evening
air.
'Of all the chickens in Christendom Ben
Button takes the womil" cr'ed Zip, a broul
uriti still nu bis face, is he also turned itnd
walked away.
Zip Pifkins, full of liro, fun and frolic, had
for the lust few weeks been playing rival to
Ben Button in th affections of Mclinda
Spratt. Ben as serijusly in love with Me
liuda; Melinda's young heart was fonl of
Zip, and Zip. homeless, careless, fun loving
rover that ho was, had never a thought that
reached into thj future for an hour
Ben and Zip lad met in the road accident
ally Bca was on his way to the Sprtt
homestead to make -further siege to Melintla'g
heart.
For ihe last few days Ben had had but nnt
thought, and that was bow to get rid of
nr. a rival So, when ho met.Zip, he pleaded
from tho fu luess of bis heart and in the
most pers jasiyp language he could command
that Zip would relinquish all claim to Mo
Unda's heart and hand.
Zip, In pure fun, feigned love also, and
with well assumed earnestness tried in turn
to prevail upon Ben to withdraw from tha
race. Np'ther, however, would give in. A
a last resort they finally agreed that each
should, in a fair, friendly way, be permitted
to plead his own causr with ileliinia and let
her decide.
With Zip, so far, it was onjy a good Joka,
and as such be had triad the most of it, M
has hern seen.

progress into favor; with Mrs. Spratt, hovr
ever, he won golden opinions and stood la

closely.
"It would almost of course, if but. Zip,

answered, looking up shyly and blushing.
'Well, you needn't be uneasy about him.
I wouldn't hurt Ben Button, by a single
thought or word, much less take his life" re
plied Z.p, with an earnestness unusual witb
him.
"I was only joking. Zip. But you seem to
be awfully in earnest and solemn this even
ing. What i3 ailing you, any way?"
"Nothing much, only 1 have made up my
md to go away," answered Zip, looking
side.
"Go awayr
"Yes. Melinda."
"Where are you goingf
"Anywhere. It makes no difference, to I
get a way."
"Aud ain't you coming back?"
"Some day, maybe, if ever I get to be of
any account to myself or anybody else."
"You are of some account pow, Zip, and
you had better stay right where you are."
"No; I've made up my mind to go and 1
am suro it is the best thing that jould hap
pen for us all around, so I'll stick to it," said
Zip resolutely.
Melinda was looking out of the window.
VL:n she saw a man coming up the lano to
ward tho house and recognized in the comet
Ben Button, a shade of annoyance flitted
over her face.
Zip had been watching Melinda, and when
ho saw the slight frown oh her face he, too,
glanced out, and, seeing who was coming, he
roso to his feet ready to depart, saying, "I'll
call in again beforo I leave and tell you all
good-by. Good evening."
Melinda glanced reproachfully after the
retreating Zip. There was a suspicion of
tears in her eyes and a little quiver around
her mouth, as she murmured to herself,
'Fool Zip! ho is going away because he
thinks 1 am going to marry t'jat hateful Ben
Button and ho is jealous. But I can't make
bini see and 1 won't ask him totstay. I'll dit
first. There!"
The truth was that a serious thought had
at last come to Zip. Ho was in love, and he
knew It. He had looked at himself as in a
looking glass and found out bis own worU"
lessncss. More than that, he had determined
to go away, change his habits and shif tless
uess, and become a useful man and citizen,
lie would not ask Melinda for her love until
ho had made himself worthy of it. If, how
ever, in the meantime some other man Bej
Button, perhaps stepped in ahead of him,
why, he would still be the gainer by an am
bition for higher things which, in an indi
rect way, would be a gift from Melinda.
That evening Ben Button asked Melinda ta
become his wife; but she was in no hrunor to
answer him then, for Zip's foolish determina
tion to go away troubled her in xto small de
gree. She knew, too, that her moier fa
vored Ben above any one else, and that sb
would bo grieved if Ben received a curt re
fusal, so sho told hkn she would hav an an
swer ready for him when he should cab
agiin. and Ben was happy.

to Melinda, and busy .days for hand ani
thought with Zip.
The decisive evening came at last, and Ben
was on band with his usual clockwork regu
larity to receite what he fully expected to be
a favorable answer to his suit.
It had been a rainy day, but the sun had
broken through the clouds in the evening ani
was setting bright and clear, casting, its last
rays upon Mrs. Spratt, Melinda and Ben
Button, as they sat on tha west:, gallery of
the bouse.
"I declare, Melinda,? said Mrs. Spratt, sud
denly, "if them well diggers haven't gone
off and forgot to shut thai gap itu the fenop
around the well."
"And there is Blossie'xicalf .In. the; yard

rise.
Melinda ran toward the well, heading the
calf off at the same tima She was about to
close the gap in the fence when her eyes .ell
upon the wide opening in the ground. She
hesitated a moment, then entered the gap and
approached the well cautiously. On the brink,
shj peered over and looked into the depth
below. She was bout to withdraw again,
but the ground under her feet gave way, and
with a loud scream she was hurled to the
bottom of the well.
Mrs. Spratt and Ben saw what happened
for their eyes had fondly followed Melinda
in her every movepjent, and they aow rushpd
to the scene of the catastrophe.
Stepping carefully upon some planks that
were lying across the opening of the wi',,
they peered into the abyss below them,
There was no sound except of crumbling
earth and pebbles falling from the sides of
tho well. The earth was loose from the rain
during tho day, and the break where Ma
linda had fallen in had started the walls to
caving all around.
Then a large mass of earth fell crashing to
the bottom of tho well and laid bare a huge
bowlder hanging as if ready to topple the
next moment. .
A faint moan from the bottom of the well
reached the ears of those above.
"Oh. Ben. she is alive I Save her! save
uerl". cried Mrs. Spratt.
"I can't, Mrs. Spratt. That rock in the
side cf the well will tall in directly," whined
Ben.
"Oh, save her, Ben! TU lower you down
tvith the windlass and hoist you out again,"
pleaded Mrs. Spratt.
'"Taint no use. That rock will tumble in
in a minute," still moaned Ben.
Just then Zip, with bead bent, came walk
ing toward tho house. Mrs. Spratt saw him
and called out to him excitedly: ''Zip! Zipl
com quiek, and savo Malinda,"
Zip heard and did not lose a moment in
running to the welL
Ho took in the situation at once. With all
speed possible he unwound the rope from the
windlass, and after telling Mrs. Spratt and
Ben to stand ready to hoist, went down in the
well, hand over hand, on the rope.
The earth was still falling, striking the bot
tom with a hollow sound, when Zip with a
lusty shout told them to boit away.
Melinda was landed above ground at last,
bleeding, bruised and unconscious. The rope
was lowered Again, and just as Zip's head was
above ground the large rook, in th" side of
the well and masses of earth from all around
crumbled in and fell with a sound u of thun
der to the bottom of the well
It was a narrow escape.
Melinda was carried to the house aud a
doctor was sent for. Before be Arrived, how
ever, she regained consciutmasfi, and seeing
Zip bending over her, a glad smile lighte 1 up
her fair young face, while she murmured,
"Don't go away. Zip; don't go away."
Just then Mrs. Spratt, accompanied -by the
doctor, entered the room and approached the
bed. When the good mother saw the smile on
her daughter's face and Zip bending low
above the pillow, glad tears came to her eyes
and her voice was low and tender.
"You can kiss her, Zip, if you want to,"
she said.
Zip did "want to," and kissed Melinda on
her smiling lips
Then Mrs. Spratt put her arms around
Zip's neck and kissed him too, and told kirn
that he must leave the room while tho doc
tor attended to Melinda's hurts, which upon
examination proved to be mere bruises after
all
Ben hung around the house for a while,
but when he saw that he .was left out in the
cold by everybody, even by Mrs. Spratt, he
thought it. best to go. John P. Sjolander in

Paris Itenl and Romantic.
"I never was so disappointed in my life as
In the working women of Paris," remarked
one lady American, of course. "1 had
heard so much about the taste of Paris, that
I thought even the shop girls and women in
the streets would show it in superior neatness
and s'.yle in their clothes; bnt they don't
look as nice as the working women we see at
home." Another lady said: "I am so disap
pointed; I always thought of Paris as a sort
of glorified city, where everything would be
found that was most beautiful. I have only
been here two days, it is true; but I have
been to the Bon Marche and the shop? of the
Louvre, and I was not tempted to buy in the
least" Naturally, two days were not much
in which to discover tha beauty of Paris, nor
see the shops of the Bon Marche and the
Louvre, the places in which to find the costly
novelties that confer the prestige of supreme
fashion and taste upon a city.
Thero is, however, an immense difference
between the Paris of today and the Paris of
even ten cr fifteen years ago. Then tho
working woman had not begun to adopt the
prevailing style. They had, a neat and prac
tical dress of their own not the' peasant
dress but simpb in construction and free
from cheap trimming and attempts at "drap
ery." Now their dress is cut after paper pat
tern modes, is cheaply furbelowed and sood
looks shabby. The trim neatness and accur
acy of cut has given place to attempts at
finery, which cannot be renewed often
enough for cleanliness and which marks "the
decline in taste, which has been neglected or
not cultivated in the right direction.
Thoro is now little of originality, for there
is no one to stimulate or pay for experimen
tal efforts such as are needed for the develop
ment of original and beautiful ideas even in
dress. The fit of the French dressmaker is
still the best in the world; but it would cease
to bo so if it were not for her Russian, Amer
ican, English and German customers. J euny

Tho ravages of what may be termed dis

aro something frightful typhus fever
(not the milder typhoid), smallpox, which
is always existent somewhere, consump
tion, dysentery, etc., carry off thousands
every year. The lot of the poorer classes,
and of those between poverty and com
fortable circumstances is a hard one.
Their dwellings are damp, musty, ill
smelling, pestiferous. It is among these
classes tl... the death rate is very high,
but among the well to do people who live
on what is here called the "primer piso,"
or first floor, or, in New England, the
second story, the mortality Is not greater
than in Boston. The peculiarity of .the
climate is that its lack of oxygen renders
recovery from sickness very difficult..
Once let yourself run down, and it is hard
getting up again. The languor of the
climate, the lack of life in the air, conspire
to keep the Invalid weak, and it is the
rule of the doctors to send patients out of
tho .city as soon as it is possible to remove
them.
BEDROOMS SEALED AT MOHT.
Out on the hillsides the country people
are robust and rarely ill. unless they hap
pen to be of that class who try to keep
bedrooms hermetically sealed at night.
This prejudice against the night air 1
very great and widespread. I suppose
that eight-tenths of the Inhabitants of
this city shut up their bedrooms as tigb'.
as a drum every night of their lives. T'ias
they breathe their own effluvia, and -pinr
away to the profit of the doctors and tlw
drug shops. This fact accounts for Che
many mottled and sallow complexions one
sees. People who have traveled, or those
who are of receptive minds and have
studied the matter, let the night air cir
culate in their apartments. Their good
blood and clear complexions testify to
their obedience to hygienic laws.
The dread of the fresh air is often car
ried to a ludicrous extent. People sit ft?
threo hours in a dirty, stuffy theatre and
breathe the air of the sewers underneath
tho floors, inhale all the human exhala
tions which contaminate the unagitated
air, and then, on going out into the com-
Earatively pure air of the street, keep
andkercniefs to their mouths and noses.
This morning I noticed a sallow woman
riding on the Paseo in her coupe, a lap
dog on her knee. The glass windows ot
tho vehicle were tightly shut, so that
none of the glorious air of the morning in
that favored spot should by chance enter
her withering lungs. Thjs was the old
monkish idea; in the convents the piouf
brethren preferred close cells and musty
tomes. They dreaded water, and soaj
was unknown to them.
A curious prejudice exists among many
people here against cold water when the
have a "catarro" or cold in tho head, o
even a touch of chill in the bones. Fot
weeks, till the cold has gone, they reso
lutely refrain from touching water. An
other popular prejudice here is that
which impels a family to movo out of
house wbcq any member of it has died.
For this reason it is. needful to be cau
tions in taking a house or apartments till
you have made certain that no one has
recently died therein of a contagious dis
ease. So far does this prejudice go that
many people abandon their old homes on
the death of a member of the family.
CniLDISn FEAR OF DISEASE.
It does not seem to be so much a super
stition as a childish (ear of disease. Ani
yet these same people who would not con
sent to remain in a house thoroughly and
scientifically disinfected, with new wall
paper and uew paint, will move to a houst
with a stagnant ditch near at hand, and
will shut themselves up in their bedrooms
at night like herring in a box. The old
houses here show In their construction
the dread of air and sunshine. With little
narrow windows, brick floors and tight
doore. they were certain to become musty
in six months' occupancy. The ancient
convents had windows of the size of prison
windows. Churches were built "so that
never by anv chance could a breath of air

block had twenty-nine of these grooves,
each filled to the depth of a quarter of an

With his copy before him, armed with

The printer now received the form and
careftlly brushed his ink over his type.
Taking a sheet of paper, he pressed it
down all over the form so that it might
be brought into contact with every char

examined each character, carefully adjust

A Cook -with m Centrifugal Motion.
A well known Paris scientist, Dr. De
branny, has made some curious discover
ies which show the connection between
little and great thipgs. To ascertain the
qualities of an. applicant cook he says it is
sufficient to give her a plate to clean, a
sauce to make, and watch how she moves
her hand in either act. If she mores it
from left to right, or in the direction ot
the hands ot a watch, yon may trust her;
if the other way, she i certain to be stu
pid and incapable. The intelligence of
people may also be ganged, the doctor
further says, by asking them to make a
circle on paper with a pencil and noting
in which direction the hand is moved.
The good students In a mathematical .
class draw circles from left to right. The
inferiority of the softer sex, as well as the
male dunces, Is shown by their drawing
from right to left. Asylum patients do
;he same. In a word, says the doctor,
centrifugal movements are characteristic
of intelligence and higher development;
centripetal are a mark of incomplete evo
lution. A person, as his faculties are de
veloped, may even come to draw circles
in a different way from what he did in bis
youth. Chambers' Journal.

We met with several instances of how
enthusiastic Scottish feeling exists in the
midst of colonial life, which, with its

is apt to become eccentric, as was the case
of the Scotsman of King William's Town
