UOU8B'1U1>ET. "We have got to move!" sighed Selina Spencer. The wind rintled in the leafless popular troes, the tntnlin curtains flapped in the draft. Old Dorcas,, the colored servant Went on sprinkling tho pillow cases on the pine table in the corner. "I've seen it coming this long time," said Selina. "The landlord has been us good and considerate as possible " "De lan'lord's an old harpy]' 1 said Dorcas. "Lan'lord's allay's idP "No, he's not," persisted Selina. "We owe him eight months' rent already, and I do not know how he'd ever to get his money. I would offer him tiio piano and the carved rosewood parlor set, if I thought they would possess any value in his eyes—in part payment, 1 mean." Dorcas rolled up the coffee-colored whites of her eyes. "Dat, piano as was Miss Adelaide's when firs she come from Baltmo'board- ing school!" said she. "Dat lubly fun- cliure as was made to order in Annap'lis! No, Miss Lina—not wiv din chile's consent!" And she rolled n thin old damask tablecloth very tight and packed into the basket with emphasis. "Mamma must: know nothing of this, Dorcas," said Sulina sadly. "Dunno bow you'oe gwine to keep it from her, Miss Lina." "It can be doud, Dorcas. I've thought it ull out," said the girl. "She must be made to suppose that she's going to spend a few days with my employers at Newport—" "Has dey done asked her, Mias Lina?" "No, you goose! I don't, suppose tnat they even know th*t I've got a mother. I am _only a typewriter and stenographer in their eyes, and render my services at so much a day. Mr«. Plinlimmon is known nil thiough Now York as a female pbil anthropist, buc while she's helping poor immigrants out of the slums and rectifj- ing .the s'opshop'question, she doesn't appreciate that a -nell dressed southern lady may be in sore straits. But, she'll make as good a figure-head as any other." "Miss Lina," said Dorcas, after a briel silence, durinpr which she rolled and sprinkled, patted and folded with unceasing violence. "Well?" "1 knows whar I could git four dollars a week for laundrecs, or five for cook. T'ink o' dat, Miss Lina?" "Do you want to leave us, Dorcas?" The old woman uttered a subdued groan. "Lord knows it ain't dat, Miss Lina! Lnrd knows it's honor enough to work for de ole Spencers! But i'ts money we 'uns wants—an ebery cent o' de ole woman's wases dey'll come back to ole missus and Mies Lina." The long lashea dropped over over Selina Spencer's lovely hassel eyes. "It's tf no use, Dorcas," said she. "We've got to bend before the storm. Hush! Do you hear that slapping?" "Somebody knocking at the do'?" cried Dorcas. ''Wyh on earth don't you ring debell?" "No," Selina detaining her as she was about to answer the supposed summons. "It's the agen putting up to 'To Let.' But whatever happens, Dorcas, don't let mamma know." She rose and taking up her hat and Kloyes went up the wide, gloomy old staircase. Dorcas looked after her and shook her turbaned head, "Meksb 'lieve she's pow'ful brave!" muttered she. "Tinks ole Dorcas dnnno she's cryln dis berry minute! Why didn't she marry Mars George Berkeley when he axed her and sabe herself all this trouble?" Up in the dimly-lighted sitting-room Mrs. Spencer sat, a faded belle of the olden days. The piano was open, the window as full of carer'ul'y tended plants; a pink shaded lamp burned on tbe table, and Mrs. Spencer herself was engaged in crewel work with slow, languid fingers. "You are later than usual to-night, Se- liua," said she fretfully. Perhaps your idea of a dutiful daughter is different from mine, but I think any amount of Shakespeare and Browning classes oughtn't to take up so much of your time away from yur mother," "i stopped to give Dorcas orders in the kitchen, mamma," Selina cheerfully answered. "But I'm all ready now. What shall I read to you until the tea comps up?" "Well," said the poor old lady feebly, "I'd like a few chapters of the Scottish Chiefs. It was the first novel my dear papa ever allowed me to read—and in my opinion your 'Ouidaa 1 aud 'Brondons' don't come near it." And while Selina read out the trials of Hftlen Mar and Bruce the brave, she wondered how on earth she should manage about showing ibe house to the eager sightseers who would be cum to bo attended by the legend "To Let" on the mor- "Can't go in dat ar room?' 1 said Dorcas interposing her stout figure between a hard featured house hunter and tbe door of Mrs. Spencer's boudoir. "Dat's private, datarU!" . "Anything wrong m the room? sharply questioned the woman. "No'm," stolidly refiponded Dorcas. "Ceiling cracked? Water pipes burst?" "No'm." "Then why can't I see it?" with a sudden push in that direction. Bhe wigh< as well have uttompi-ea to charge » bat'ery of artillery. Old D »rcps stood jmau'VuWe. "Lidy uin't well, uniw,' wd. aLe. "Can't jmjbpdy go ind<rt ryooml Tojd you so »for>'" "An "Yes'm, oartin shuahl" "Very well," said the house hunter with a forward jerk of her chin; "I shall take no hause that I can't see every inch of!" and she flouncea out. All day lone Dorcas fought the army of investigators valiantly, and at night' a? she herself observed, ',!ehe was jes'as tired 39 IE she'd done a double day's wash." Stout ladies peered into I he sub-cellar and denounced the drainage; lean ladies pik- ed their parasols into the kitchen sink and tore off strips [of the hall paper. Deep- voiced men parleyed at the monthly rental; fat old gentlemen asked questions in husky accents. ''I shall go crazjr," said Dorcas. The next morning, however, dove- winged Peace once more settled down on the field of ao'aon. The agent came up and removed the bill. "The house is taken," said he. "Who's took it?'' demanded Dorcas, who chanced j ust then to be scouring the grasses. But the agent either did not know or would not tell. Dorcaas-heaved a deep sigh. "Den," says she, "we've got tocl'afout." The landlord sent Selina a polite note in a day or two. He had concluded, he wrote, to accept her offer of the furniture and belongings as an equivalent for a certain portion of the unpaid rent. "Now, sad Dorcas, "what is we to do?" ^ Poor Mrs. Spencer was al| in a flutter. The Newport siheme delighted her and was very busy looking over her ward robe with reference to the coming visit. Selina had written to the aunt of an old school • in ate of hers, who kept a boarding house in the fair seaside city, asking her lowest price for a_ comfortable room. Dorcus was to go with Mrs. Spencer as attendant and maid and Sslina had resolved to hire a iconi in New York and board herself ai well as she could. "But this has been a dear old home," p v e murmured. "1 wonder who will sleep in my room; 1 wonder whose hands will ptrike the yellow keys of mamma's piano, and dust uiy flowered blue china, and arrange the old fiddle backed chairs." The purple sunlight shone softly in, the spoilt or a^tulk of hyacinths in a glass on the mantel brought back reminiscences of the old southern fl >wer gardens, and all ol a sudden n voice which she had last heard in those vr-ry gardens struck on her ear. "SelinH have 1 startled you?" "Mr. Berkelyl" He extucdrd a cordial hand. "Perhaps you fancied that 1 could not tiucu you out? ' said he. ''But 1 am better at hide and seek than you thought. She courtened haughtily. His handsome countenance fell. Evidently he was deeply disappointed. "Are you not ^lad to see me, Selina?" he exclaimed.' "Ah, belina! I had counted so m'ich upon this interview. 1 had planned to renew my suit—to ask you once more to be my wife." She drew her slight figure up. "You are presuming coo much on my very evident poverty, Mr. Berkeley." sakl she. "I refused you when I was Miss Spencer or Spencer Valb. WhatsTtof a woman should I be if 1 were now to accept you—simply as a protection against adversity?" "But, Selina" "Pray excuse me from any further discussion on the question, "said Selina. "May I not hope to see your mother?" he persisted. ''I should perfer not." "Do you know, Silina," he said, after a brief silencp, "that this is a very bitter mortification to me?" •'It is? Then what must it be to me?'' she retorted, almost fiercely loo ring up at him. He siood a second or two gazing sadly at her. Stung by the scrutiny, she swept from the room like an angered'princess. Half a minute later she came hurrying back, full of sweet, strange misgivings. But he was gone. "I have let another opportunity slip by," she murmured. "Oh. heavens! Where is my life drifting to?" At that moment; Aunt D ircas ushered in the landlord, a fusty, baldheuded old gentleman, with,n fur collar to his coat. "Good evening, Miss Spencer," said he. 1 expected to meet the new party here." "The—1 beg your pardon!" said Selina. "The gentleman who has purcha-ed this house and furniture," explained Mr. Beasley, "and settled it on yourself and your mother. A friend of yours, I suppose— Mr. Berkley. Standing sadly in the shadow of. the mailing poplar boughs outside, George Berktly felt the magnetic Jufluunce of" another's presence.. A soft voice stirred the twilight air, like the far off music of forgotten days. "Mr. Berkeley, 1 ' it said—"George!— please will you forgive me?" A dead silence ensued. "Won't you George?" with a little sob in the voice. "1—1 didn't mean to speak so harshly to you. 1—didn't know then what I know now of your noble generosity." Silence—only silence still. "If 1 accept it for dear mamma's sake you surely will not misinterpret me. On, George! how can you be so cruel? Why doa't you answer me? What are you waiting for me to say?" And still no word broke that haunting silenre! "George," in a low voice, "I've changed my mind. I will be your wife," He took her in his arms. „ "Dear sweetheart!" he murmured, "Dear little melting snow wreath, I knew that love would conquer you at last!" When Mrs. Spencer heard of the engagement she said quietly: "1 always thought that they cared for each other; but since your master died, Dorcas, my poor head has scarcely been itself. But make haste and finish the packing-. We are going to Newport are •we not?" And so the wedding trip was to Newport.—Toronto Mail. I/KADINU MODERN GTJNS. How it U Done With Dispatch on u, Ship of War. When we are ready to load u modern gun the second gun captain turns a little crank on top of the breech, which revolves the breech plug hereby unfastening it. He then takes hold of a bundle and pulls and the breech of the gun opens on a hinge like a door. Toe sponge is run in from the breech and plenty of water is thrown in, thus quickly and thoroughly cleansing the chamber of the gun. Two men come up with a shell in a .pair of tprgps like an iceman's. They insert the now of the Bnell in the gun, and an- Othw map ate'ps up with » rjunwey and shes it in. Two men coma up with the powder charge apd it is pphed into the chmnljer m tfee same way. The nja» at tb,e. breeeb, - ft, tttffffil* <WfcfW$ it *» The gun captain opens a little flip in the gnnlock, which is in the center of the beach, and inspfts a primer. He cocks the lock, which works with a spring, and steps back with the lockstrmg. The second captain sets the breech sight to the proper range. On top of the sight is n little sliding leaf which can be" set to as to allow f jr the speed at which the ship is passing the object <o be fired at. Now thp trainers take (heir places, one on each side of the carriage, at the training cranks by means of which the breach of the ?un is raised or lowered. The gun captain steps back, and glancing over the sight, directs the trainers to move ..the breach to right or left as he desires, and the elevators to raise arid lower. The instant the sights are on the obj «t he fires. No one need to move away trom the gun, and it can be fir 3d even while the trianing and elevating gear is in motion. The moment the «?un is discharged the order i s given to spunge and the operations abov^ described are repeated! —Harper's Young People. OJTBMAN tVUO ESCAPKD. How the Bunco Men Kutf rtalnetl nn Angel Unawares. There wan a pretty old and pretty verdant looking man at the Third street depot the other day, with thr;o houra to wait for his frain, and by-and-by he approached Officer Button and said he guessed he'd wander around for a spell, says the Detroit Free Press. "Well, lookout for yourself," replied tha officer. "Any danger?" "There's al<vays slick fellows about." "Yas, I s'poao thar is, but I shan't let nobody fool mo." He wa? gone about an hour, and when de returned he showed the officer a bank check for $200 and asked; "Does that seem all right to you?" "Rignt? Of course not. It's a check on a Buffalo bank signed John Smith, it's a dead fake, of course." "Fake! Fake! What's a fake?" "You've been fdked. I expected jou'd E?et into trouble when you went out of here. Seems singular that you can't talk common seme inlo some people." "Then the check is no good?" asked the old man. "Why, of course not. H>w much diJ you lend on it?" "I gave him 125." "Well, you've been confidenced, and now you'd better go and sit down and keep mum." "Is that what they call a confidence game?" ''Ot course." " Well, 1 thought HO all the time." "Tien what did you let him walk off with your money for?" "I didn't, you know. He started to go, but I grabbed iiiiu by the neat, like this, and bucked him up agin' a «vall, like this, and I pulled pu' this old pistil and Imd the bar'l on his MOST and he gave up thai onpy q'jiekw'n a scat. The old man illustrated the case in the most vigorous manner, even to laying on the bar'l whicu was a portion of a weapon seemingly filcy years old. "So yuu got >our money?" asked the officer, as he got his neck loose from the old mun's grip. "Got her right down in my breeches pocket, safe as a bank. How muuh more time have 1 got?" "An hour and a half." "Wall, I guess I'll take another little walk nround.

Jttuuy of Them Had Their Origin In Very E.trly Times. Apollo was the old god of music and his Eavorit" instrument, the lyre, was invented by M-;rcury. When the latter was four aours old he found the shell of a tertois and made it into a lyre with nine strings, in honor of the Muses. This instrument Mercury gave to Apolle, who became a wonderlul player upon it. Tne lyre was used by the Greeks in olden times and from it was fashioned the harp. The old-time vioj was the first instru merit of is kind and furnished the plan for ;he modern violin, which, however, is 700 years old says Harper's Young People. It s said that Charle II introduced it into Bngland. One of tho finest makers of violins was Stradivarius, of Cremona, who existed in the early part of tho eighteenth century. Violins made by him are worth ihousands of dollars now und highly en- teemed by collectors and performers. The flute is very old in its origin, but ,he flute of to-day is different from that of the ancients. It has been improved upon from time to time and the old people would probably fail to recognizs it now. The flageolet, which is somewhat similar, s credited to Juvigny about 1581 The first trumpet was a sea shell anci was used by very old nations. Trumpets were well known in the days when Homer ived, and a Jewish feast of trumpets is spoken of in the Bible, nearly 1500 B. C. Alexander the Great is said to have used a. speaking trumpet 835 B. C. The harp, which was suggested by the ute, is described to Jubal, 8875 B. C., md was King David's favorite instrument. The harp was used by the Welsh and Saxous, and also by the ancient penile of Ireland. Oae of tho oldest harps n existence is in the Dublin College museum and originally belonged to Brian Baroihme, king of Ireland. Cure- SPOILED THK GAME. Tho Rights of Others Should not b lenely Overlooked. In public, as well as in private, one .houlu ever be mindful of the rights of others. Not long since a clergyman ac- uprnpanied by two young ladies was traveling. It was nearing the hour of midnight, yet they had not ordered their sleeping berths made up. Instead, thej were indulging in a game at words- trying to see who could think of th« most words that begin with this or that etter. They spent half aa hour or n ore on 'A," uud then went to "B" with ft freshness that seemed to indicate thai: they ntended, despite the lateness of the hour, to go to the end of the alphabet. At any ratc.tbat was the impression they gave to the tired man in the berth opposite, who was trying in vain, to sleep. Presently thorn came a JuU/when no»$ of the ; three seemed able to think of another 3.
