Myra had said thai 'the RosaUer family would always be Just;, an* jiimp ahead of the poorhouae. Myra hud suld that the Rosslter glrla would never find men financially able to marry them. With a pang lu her heart Ellen thought of Myra, engaged for nine years to Bert, worn out with ceaseless waiting for Uio opportunity, the break' that never came. She thought ot little iMikc. In an ago of specialization Mike must have his clmnco. But iiow was that chance to come? How was Mike to go to college as other boys did? How was Mike to get an education? All of the Rosslters desired cuae and beauty and luxury In life. All of them deserved those things. As she mechanically cut lengths of 10-cent outing flannel for women who for some Inscrutable reason wanted outing flannel In midsummer, the girl's mind returned continually (o that morning conversation. Were the Rosslters tooling themselves? Were they Indeed all 'lost In worse than mediocrity? Old the papt glories of a family count fpr nothing when the present of that family was poverty? "What's eating you?" Jenny Elkins, her counter mate, asked once. "Nothing," Ellen replied spiritlessly. But she felt weary and discouraged. Her head acbed from the heat and from the ceaseless com- pjuints of shoppers who desired more for their roouey than their money would buy, "Like us," thought Ellen bitterly. With uooc and the lunch hour «lie cheered. As she combed her hair and powdered her damp faco dry, she observed that she bad a great deal of company. Tbe dress- Ing room was full ot salesgirls, less well off than herself, many of them fading, past the age of romance and pufit the possibility of attaining . happier futures. Ellen was young. She had undeniable good looks and distinction. fust around the corner who knew what might be In store? She swung out Into the street. Fifth avenue was jaded and wilting (9 the August sunshine. Even toe shop windows seemed dusty sad toe merchandise, usually so enticing, was dimmed by tue blazia$ noon light. • • t B UT Ellen felt tue customary lift of spirit as she left th* store. was almost eager now tor tue jj, 8 j, e Ellen did not notice him until he touched her arm. hod never been Inside Dreamland. There was no reason why It might not be fun. There would be youth there,.at least. ..It .was better to dance, than to sit evening after evening jn a stuffy apartment wondering how two small salaries were to bo, stretched to feed and clothe three adults and ono active boy. That feeling of suppressed excitement was still with her when sh.e reached the dancchnll a few steps off Broadway and plunged Into the graceful dusk ot the build Ing. It left her abruptly when, at the second floor, she left the elevator and stepped Into Dreamland. The big, over-decorated room, even with all the shades drawn, appeared cheap and tawdry. Tho paper roses that shaded the lighta wero not only Imitation—they were dirty. The lloor, not yot swept, was niussy will) confetti remaining from the night before. Nor did the peeling gilt chulrs and tables arranged around the walls present a setting for romance. Or tho glass ticket booth near the door like tho ticket booths of motion picture houses. As though romance were for sale! Ellen squared her jaw, assured herself that she had not come for romance, and walked toward the door marked 'fOfflce—Jacob Salomon, Manager." She was a little surprised that there were no other girls waiting and a little cast down as well. That probably was a clear Indication that Dreamland jobs were not too profitable. She knocked at the misted glass door. A querulous voice bade her enter. Jacob Salomon did not rise when she came In. He was wearing a hat. He did not remove his hut. Nor did lie remove the cigar in his mouth when he inquired her business. Ellen told him. "D'ja ever dance professionally?" "No, 1 haven't.. But I'm a very good dancer," replied Ellen in a voice as brusque as his own. She bad no intention of being intimidated by Jacob Salomon. He leaned across his untidy desk, wound up a portable victrola, put on a record and stood, up. "I'll try you out,".lie said. Ellen looked startled. But evidently Salomon expected her to dauce with him- He was holding out bis arms. Sue uad never before danced with a man in h'.s shirt sleeve*. « man wearing a hat and a clear. But she stepped firmly forward. • • ' • TpLLEN was a light and graceful •*- J dancer. She was surprised to find that Salomon, for all his bulk, danced better than any partner she had ever had before. After two turns of the room ho released her, mopped his forehead and flopped Into his swivel chair again. "You'ro o. k,," lie announced. "Turn up with your evening dress at eight o'clock tonight. You're allowed Mondays off if you wont 'em. Talto any other night off, without explaining. In advance, and you're fired. That's (ill." Kllon smiled faintly. "I'm afraid It isn't all." she observed unruffled. "I have to be satisfied with the job too. What Is the salary?" "No salary. Commissions. The boys pay 10 cents a dance straight dancing. You can pick up more giving private lessons. You get half the takings. You split your tips too—if any." Ho squinted his eyes and regarded her with the cold glance of a surgeon or a musical comedy director. "You're good-looking," he admitted us if he had, just noticed It. "You got class too. I guess you'll knock the spots off any of the hostesses we have now. You ought to make throe or four dollars an evening easy—six or seven on Saturdays. Easier than clerking in a store. That what you do now?" Ellen was considerably taken aback. Color rose in her cheeks, but her voico was cool as she admitted that she did clerk In a store and meant to continue to do so. Salomon indifferently assured her that such a course was an easy way to quick suicide, but lie did not appear to be really interested. "Another tiling," Ellen said as she prepared to leave. "I haven't any real evening dress. Only semi-evening dresses." Salomon's feet, which had been cocked upon the desk, came down ou the floor. "Won't do," he said. "1 rnigut as well tell you that the evening clothes are the catch. They wear out last hero. Aud you gotta nave 'ein. This is a classy place. Part o£ our advertising is 'Every beautiful hostess in, tue latest Xrom Paris.'" "But I—" "Won't do. We're lu this bi« for money—not for ,our health." H« added speculatlvely, his eyes curious, ''No reason why a Jane aa good-looking as you are shouldn't have all the evening duds in the world. No reason for that matter why you should be clerking in a store or working here either." AS Ellen, angry and discouraged, "• went out the door, be called after her, "The job's always open 11 you manage to scare up the dress." Late that afternoon, Ellen, bitterly disappointed at losing the $20 or $25 a week, telephoned to the Brooklyn apartment house. There was a long wait while good-natured Mrs. Clancy climbed the stairs to bring Molly to the phone. But the wait was easier than the explanation. Molly Rosslter made It very hard. She could not understand why Ellen had.not persuaded Salomon to take her without the evening dress. She never understood such things. To top this off she explained tearfully that the landlord had called during the morning for his rent. "What will we do?" she wailed. Ellen no better idea ot that than Molly. But she poured forth reassurances before she bung up the receiver and turned away. She gave way a little then. There wera tears in her wide, thick-lashed eyea and her face, ordinarily so rosy, was pale with fatigue and anxiety. She brushed past a handsome, middle-aged man, who bad been waiting at the row ot telephones on the fifth floor of Barclay's. She did not notice him until he touched he/ on the arm. She turned to facq Steven Barclay, owner of the department store. "You're employed here, aren't you?" he asked. Ellen's heart gave a great thump. It was against the rules to telephone during business hours. It was also against the rules tq leave one's counter. Her counter, tended by another girl, was six floors below iu the basement. "I am employed here," she said in a strained, low voice. "Will you step into my office, please?" Ellen clamped her teeth into her lower lip. As she silently followed him she called forth all her reserve to meet this final calamity. So she was to lose her Job at Barclay's! ' ' * (To a Days .#., ADVANCE IN COrf-ON-We arc M* fofmed by a gentleman Just froth tt«* Orleans, which place he left oh thfc 27ih, that there was great excitement in the cotton market an dthat an ad* vKhee o! two cents a pound had takefl pltce. The advance was caused by tit* arrival of the Themis, front LlverptHJf with dates to the 15th of December, smwlng an advance of a cent and ft qyarter in England. He brings no papers but assures us that the quota* lions when he left were from llta to 14 cents a 'pound. « -. MAQNfcttc TELEGRAPH to NEW ORLEANSMVe learn with pleasure thtit a contract has been wade by the patentees of Morse's magnetic tele* tfraph to Construct a line from Washington to -'.' 'N6w Orleans by way of Charleston, '.Mobile and numerous other intermediate points of commer^ cial Interest. Books of subscriptions to this stock, the whole amount which Is estimated at lees than $200,060, will soon be opened in Philadelphia, and the great importance of the line will, we fell confident, commend it to favorable consideration. It is thought probaBle that Congress may take some action on the subject, and aid its speedy construction as a war measure, in the way of loans; for it will place the cabinet in Washington in almost immediate communication with the army arid navy In the gulf. The Whigs should run the devil for their candidate for the presidency. We don't believe though the Whigs Will Step Into the locofoco regions for this Candidate, and the gentlemen spoken of will have to rely on the exertions of his own party. ' '• WHEN WILL THE WAR CLOSE! Aye, that is the question. When the war was commenced it was supposed by those who brought it about for the purpose of sustaining their political power, that it would be of short duration, that the Mexicans would be frightened into fits and come speedily to any terms demanded of them; and that the administration would, crown itself with glory, and insure its triumph for four years longer. This was a probably calculation, but it has been woefully flusttrated. .The Mexicans have shown resistance beyond what was anticipated, the administration is not likely to reach the laurels it expected, and there is no . forming a definite idea at present when the war will end. Mr. Polk is doubtless heartily tired of it, since it cannot possibly result in any popularity or honor to him. The commencement of the war was his,' and if he is to geather any laurels he must do it frp'm that act alone. The deeds of Our, gallant troops are another matter. They can reap honor in this prosecution, and glory in its issue. It .is nothing to' them how the War commenced, but their, honor and that of the country is 'interwoven with its issue. The president might like to get out of the w,ar,. : but the army of the country de- that it shall be with, honor. Jttirit Meeting Sunday •'• V of Ep worth Leagues 'A joint meeting of the Epworth Leagues of the Washington-Ozan charge 'Of the Methodist church was held in the local Methodist church on last[ Sunday nigt. This is to be a regular occurence hereafter it is announced by officers of the several leagues represented, and will likely take place on the fourth of fifth Sunday in each month.

Its activities are carried on under the supervision of adults. While the 'division is under the auspices of the Methodist church, yet it is net ej{9lusively foi 1 Methodist young people.
