Mary returned home and a few days
later was solicited to take charge of
mall select school. But Mrs. Mssoa
thought it best for ber to return to
Mount Holyoke and accordingly she de
clined Mr. Knight's offer, greatly to his
disappointment, and that of many others.
One morning about a week after her
return she announced her Intention of
fishing her mother's grave. "I am ac
customed to so much exercise," said she,
"that I can easily walk three miles, and
perhaps on my way home I shall get

Mary was soon on ber way. She was a
rapid walker, and almost before she was
aware of It reached the village. As she
came near Mrs. Campbell's the wish nat
nrally arose that Ella should accompany
her. Looking up, she saw her sister in
the garden snd called to her.
"Wha-a-t?" was the very loud and un
civil answer which came back to her, and
In a moment Ella appeared round the cor
ner of the house, carelessly swinging her
straw hat and humming a fashionable
song. On seeing ber sister she drew
back the corners of her mouth into some
thing which she intended for a smile, and
said, "Why, I thought it was Bridget

"Thank yon," returned Mary. "I was
going to moher's grave, and thought per
haps you would like to accompany me."
"Oh, no," said Ella, In her usual drawl
ing tone, "I don't know as I want to go.
I was there last week, and saw the mon
ument." "What monument?" asked Mary, and
"Why, didn't you know that Mrs. Ma
son, or the town, or somebody, bad
bought a monument, with mother's and
father's and Franky's and Allie's names
Mary, hurrying on, soon reached the
graveyard, where, as Ella had said, there
stood by her parents' graves a large,
handsome monument. William Bender
was the first person who came Into her
mind, and as she thought of all that had
passed between them, and of this last
proof of his affection, she seated herself
among the tall grass and flowers which
grew upon her mother's grave and burst

and appearing greatly pleased when told
that she had been at Mount Holyoke.
Observing at length that her eyes con

spoke of that, praising its beauty, and
asking if it were her taste.
"No," said she. "I never saw It until
to-day, and did not even know It was

return to the city shall I refresh his mem

"I'd rather you would not," answered
Mary. "Our paths In life are very dif

"Ara I to conclude that you, too, feel

But she made no reply, and, soon rising

vacation was over, and again In the
balls of Mount Holyoke was heard the
tread of many feet, and the sound of
youthful voices as one by one the pupils
came back to their accustomed places.
For a time Mary was undecided whether
to return or not, for much as she desired

dropping into the easy-chair, she burst

brought one of them to Mary, saying,

Mary felt more disappointed than she
was willing to acknowledge, and for a

MAKING GIRLS HAPPY ON FARMS
Mrs, Meredith Tells Abont the School
for Farm iV Wires in Minnesota.
What tho Weat la doing In the way
of training girls to live happy lives on
farms was very ably shown at Hunt
ington hall, Boston, recently by Mrs.
Virginia C. Meredith, preceptress of the
school of agriculture of Minnesota uni
Mrs. Meredith has herself conducted
a successful stock farm for many years,
and she believes thoroughly In the
farm life for young people.

did so, and now for four years we

many, out of which country they were
driven by persecution early In the
eighteenth century. They came to
Pennsylvania on the Invitation of Wil
liam Penn, and In that State they
throve and grew numerous. Until re
cently Pennsylvania has been the head
center of the Duukards, but so many
of them have emigrated to the farm
lands of the far West that the center
has now shifted.
It was from one of the Pennsylvania
communities that sprang an even more
curious and Interesting development

Pa., once a manufacturing and com
mercial metropolis, now a mere vil
Nearly 200 years ago Conrad BeisseL
of Dunkard parentage, was baptized
Into the German Baptist Church. He
was a man of great study and pious
zeal, and he became convinced that
the seventh, instead of the first, day
of the week should- be observed as the
Sabbath day. He wrote tracts In sup
port of this view and urged It so
strongly that, to avoid trouble, he was
finally compelled to withdraw from
membership In the society. He retired
into what was then a wilderness and
made bis home In an old cave on the
bank of a river, where he lived the life
of a hermit. Gradually some of bis
friends and others who were convinced
that he had the right way of thinking
gathered about bis cavern, and in 1732
a communistic life was entered upon by
those who followed ' him. The men
of the society wore long white flannel
gowns and cowls, with shirts, trousers,
and vests of the same materlul. The
women were attired In the same way,
with the exception that a short petti
coat was substituted for tho trousers.
There were no vows of celibacy taken
nor required, though the Idea was
servances. Altogether they now num
ber more than 100,000 members, though
there Is not much If any growth In their
numbers of recent years. The young
people who grow up In the denomina
tion seem to be more aud more Inclined
to leave it In recent years for some
faith which will give them more lib
erty of thought and action.
Every congregation of the Dunkards
Is entirely Independent of the rest and
elects Its own deacons, ministers, and
Bishops. None of the clergy Is paid a
reirular salary, but If he Is poor the
church members will contribute to his
support. When there are questions
which Involve more than one congrega

are held, and the Dunkards meet by
the thousands In the open air to settle
At every conference, as well as at
the love-feasts which are held In every
congregation twice a year, the first cer
emony Is that of the washing of feet
All the men of the congregation sit on
one side of the meeting-bouse and all
the women on the other side. Then, as
the candles are lit, the members on the
front benches remove their shoes and
stockings. Men and women come In,
carrying tubs of lukewarm water, and
a man on the man's side and a woman
on the woman's side then wash tho
feet, one by one, shaking the right hand
of each Individual as the washing is
completed and giving the kiss of peace.
Closely following the person who does
the washlug comes another person,
girded about the waist with a long
towel, who wipes the feet and bestows
the kiss of peace and the right hand
of fellowship In his or her turn. As

Within their walls one will first be

the same size, measuring exactly five
feet In height and twenty Inches In
width. This, It is explained by the
old Dunkards who still live about
Ephreta, was intended to be a constant
reminder to . the faithful, as they
stooped and twisted to get through the
doors, that the way which leadeth to
eternal life Is narrow and steep.
These Dunkards are Inclined to live
together in communities, though this is
less pronounced than formerly. They
are cut off from the rest of the world
not only by their peculiar dress but by
many of the religious beliefs and ob-

to the ceremony.

widow," and a considerable amount
of research has been directed to the
subject. So far the inquiries made
have succeeded In tracing the word
back to the year 1844, when it was used
in the Calcutta Review. In the opinion
of qualified philologists the term- B a
corruption of the much older one
"grace widow." This Is derived from
"vidua de gratia," which may be in
terpreted literally as "widow by fa
vor." London News.
