MAUY'S TllOXH. When Mary Clarimont's engagement as proclaimed to the world theie ensued general expression of surprise. People generally are surprised at matrimonial engagements. Tnero i is always soina cogent reason why things should have been adjusted otherwise—why Jolin should have "married Joan, and Peter should prefer'Betsey. Nobody was over yet married to suit everybody. But in Mary; Clarimont's case it did really seem as if the course of true lovo had interferred seriously with the current of common sense and prudence. Miss Clarimont was only pne-and-twen- ty, a tall, imperial beauty, with dewy black eyes, a skin as fresh as a damask rose, and dark brown hair coiled in shining bnnds at the back of her head. Moreover, Miss Clarimont had a ''career" before her. She had just graduated from .Medfield medical university, and taken out her diploma as M.D. "And only think of it," said Aunt Jo, bursting into tears of vexation and disappointment, "thatjshe must needs go and ruin all her prospects by getting; engaged to Harry Marlow down in New York!" "It does seem strange, Aunt Jo, when I eit clown and think of it," said Dr, Maiy, laughing and blushing.; "Six months ago my_ profession was all the world to uie._ I neither wished nor cared for any thing outside its limits. The future wns all mapped out be.fore me without let or hindrance;.and now"—— • "Humph!" growled Aunt Jo. "Any S brainless idiot can get married and keep ra man's house and mend his shirts for him, but you were made for something higher and more dignified, Mary." Mary's dew-brietht eyes sparkled. "Higher, Aunt "Jo?" said she. "More dignified? There you are mistaken. There is no higher or more dignified lot in life Lban that of a true wife of a noble husband." . "Fiddlesticks!" said Aunt Jo: "As if every poor fool who was dazzled by the glittering of a wedding ring didn'l say the same thing? You've disappointed me, Mary Clarimont, and I'ra ashamed of you, and that is the long anc short of it." "Dear Aunt Jo," said she, "I shall not let my sword and shield rust, believe me. Harry has only iiis own talents to advance him in the world, and it will be at 'least a year before we shall be ready to marry In the.meantime I shall accept the post ol visiting physician to the Aldenbury aims- house and practice ray profession in Al- denbury just the same as if there were no engagement," "I wisVi to goodness there wasn't,' «aid Aunt Jo. "1 tell you what, Mary, 1 don't fancy that smiling smooth- tongued young man of yours, and I nevei ghail." Still Dr. Mary Clarimont kept her temper. "1 am sorry, Aunt Jo," she said, pleas nntly, "but I hope that you will »ventually change your mind." "1 used to ksep a- thread-and-needle store when I was a young woman," re- tiarked Aunt Jo, dryly, "and I always could tell the ring of a counterfeit half-dollar when a customer laid it on the counter. I could then, and I can now—and I tell you wnat, "Mary, there's base metal about '.•-•,: Harry Marlow. '' Dr. Maryjbit her lip. "Perhaps. We will not discuss the subject further, Aunt Jo," she said, with quiet dignity, and the old lady said no more.- . "Aunt Jo is wrong," persisted the pretty young M. D. to herself, "Mary is making a fool of herself," thought Aunt Jo. Aldenbury was a pretty manufacturing village, with a main street shaded by umbrageous maples, a "west end," where pfeople who h&d made their fortunes lived comfortably in roomy old houses, surrounded by velvet lawna and terraced gardens; and an ^ "east wid," where the people fought desperately and not always successfully to keep body and soul together on the merest pittance. And a little way out of the village the almshouse, built and endowed by a certain smuggling tea captain, whose • conscience had pricked him during his latter days, raised its gray stone gables to the sky, and made a picturesque background to the landscape. Dr. Maiy Clarimont made something of u sensation in Aldenburtr. Up to this time all the resident M. D-'s has been sturdy old gentlemen, with wigs, or pert young ones with eyeglasses. A beautiful young lady who _ wrote prescriptions and compounded pills and potions was a novelty in the,town, and by no means a disagreeable pne. People, rather liked tha idea, once they had convinced themselves that the lady doctor understood herself and her patients. And the poor old people at the alnje- house grew to love Dr. Mary and listen vrith eager eara for the sound of her car-. riage wheels over the blue grjiyel drive .», /which led up to tto portico. 1 f It was a brilliant December the young physician stood in . ,.„ iftrpeted re option room, drawing on full gloves previous to entering her neat phaeton once again, while she reiteraied to the white capped maid some directions concerning old Ann Mudgett's rheumatism, wnen the matron hurried in. "Ohj I beg your pardon, Dr. Clarimont," said she, "bnt I clean forgot the new old woman." "The new old woman," repeated Dr. Mary, with a smile. "That is," exclaimed Mrs. Cunningham, she only come last night—a quiet old soul; half blind and quite bad with asthma. Perhaps you'd better just see her before you go: She brought a card of admission from Dr. Morton, the New York clergymen, who is one of our directors, yibu knbw. And she seems a decent body nnough." • So Dr. Mary went cheerfully into the little brick paved room, with her white pallet bed, cushioned rocking chair und neatly draped casement, where sat a poor, little shriveled up woman, wrapped in a faded shawl. She looked timidly up as Dr. Mary came n from under the borders of her cap. "I'm a poor boCy, miss," said she", "and I'm sensible I'm making a deal of trouble .n the world. But the Lord don't always ;ake us, miss, when we'd like to go." "This is the doctor," jimid Mrs. Cunningham. ' ; The little woman would have riseri to make a feeble courtesy, but Mary uiotion- ed her to keep her seat. "What is your name?" she said pleasantly. "Louise Marlow, miss." ' Marlow! That is an unusual name, isn't it?" said Mary Clarimont, coloring in spito of herself ' We're English, miss," said the old woman struggling bravely with her asthma. "There ain t any of us in this country. 1'vo a son, miss, in the law business, as any mother may be proud of." "A son!" echoed Mrs. Cunningham, "and you in the almshouse?" Not that it's his fault, rna'ain," the old creature made haste to explain "My son is to be married to a fine, proud young lady as is fit for any prince in all the land, and, of course, he can't bo expected to burden himself with a helpless old woman like me. He says I'm to write and let him know how I get along and if I'm sick or anything he'll try and see me. I-tewed carpets until the asthma got hold of rue, and supported myself comfortably. But of course, I couldn't lay .up anything for a rainy day—who could? And Henry couldn't help me, for he's getting ready to be married, poor lad! So I went to .Dr. Merton and asked him did he know any decent place where an old woman like roe conld spend her days' in peace. And lie gave mo a card to come here and some money to pay my traveling expenses—God bless him!—and here I am." ' , Mary Clarimont listened quietly .to the garrulous tale, but the color _ varied in .her cheek more than once while she stood there. . • v "Is your son's name Harry Marlow?" she said, slowly and thoughtfully. "Yes, miss,"at your service," said the old woman, with a duck of her white capped head, which was meant to do duty in place of the impossible courtesy. "Is,he like this?" said Dr. Mary taking a photograph from her pocket. The old woman with trembling hands fitted on her iron-bowed spectacle and looked at the picture uttering a little cry of recognition. "Sure, miss, it's his own self," she cried. "You are acquainted with him then?" "Somewhat," said Dr. Mary, composedly, as she returned the photograpii to its place. "And now I will leave you something to relieve this difficulty in breathing." But the old crone eyed her watchfully. "Perhaps you know the young lady my son is to marry?" "Yes," said Dr. Mary, writing something in her prescription book, "I have seen her." "Perhaps, miss," faltered the old woman you will give her my humble^ duty, and tell her I would just like to look at her for snce and see what she is like. There's no fear of my troubling her. miss, for I mean to end my days here. But ANCIEXf TUBES. *>*e» Ot*r r. Thonffind Tfeart Old—Others Kopntrd to Have n History. Illustrated American: Therfi are several trees in Europe that are more than 1,000 years old, if we may believe tradition, descended from generation to generation; mav count their venrs by centuries; and others are from 2,000 to 3,000 years ol.d, according to <he compulation of men of science. There is a cypress in the vkjpity of a Padua which is regarded_ as having been a contemporary of Julius Caesar, and, according to another legend, it wf.s against the trunk of this Iree that Francis 1. of France, seeing "all ^ost save honor," endeavored to break his sword. The Oak of Swilcar Lawn, in the forest of Needwobd, England, was still robust in 1822, at the age of 600 years, and, at the same, epoch, there might have been seen at Shupstead Place, county of Kent, a large e'lm, around which A fair was annually held during the reign of Henry V., in tbe fifteenth ceuturv. The age of the Brad burn yew, in this same county of Kent, was estimated by De Can- dolle to be 8,000 years, and he attributed the same age to another yew, that of For- tingal, Scotland. The English historian, Evelyn, in the seventeen century cited a linden of the environs of Neustadt (Wurtemburg), then aged more than 1,000 years. At Hildeshcim, in Hanover, there is a celebrated rosebush, the oldest in the world. Charlemagnehiuiself planted it more than a thousand years ago in comemmoration of the embassy received from the caliph of the Thousand and One lights, Haroun-al-Raschid. TnSIS Louis le Debonnarie, had a chapel constructed, the altar of which was placed over the roots of the rose bush. The stem _ of this rose bush is about 2J^ inches in diameter and 28 feet in' height. Tho branches, trained up ngaiust tho apsis of tho chapel, over a surface of 118 square feet. Tho plant annually bears a large number of Howers. A linden stands not far from the church of Cadief in Keer, in the province of Limburg, _whose trunk measures about 20 feet in circumference. It is said to have been planted by the Roman 'soldiers who wero besieging "the neighboring city of Attnatica, now Horstens. A violent storm broke off a portion of tho branches in 1868, and tho debris amounted to six wagon loads. Some years later its top suffered greatly by a fire that consumed .the houses in the vicinity; but despite these two accidents the treu is still vigorous, and it shades a vast [surface. There is to be seen also at Schwarzenberg, in Saxony, a linden whose trunk is 25 feet in :ircuniference, and two others at Schneo- jery, one 1G and the other 14 feet in circumference. The ancient acts and charters often mention trees selected as boundaries of property. Thus, a chestnut tree at Tortworth, Eng., whose trunk is x>rmed by the adhesion of two trees, figures upon two charlors dated 1135, An oak still living at Tilford, nenr Franham, is mentioned in a charter of Henry of Blois, under the date of 1250. A hawthorn iij, he vicinity of Norfolk, long known as the Hetherthorn, is the old thorn spoken of in in act of 1200. But among the oldest of ;rees are ihe tnanf, sequoias of California. A sequoia pigantea felled in Calaveras county measured 386 feet in height, 32.5 n diameter at the base, and 15 at 125 feet above the Dearth, and had attained the igejof 3,000'years.

"I will write to him, said Dr. Mary quietly; and so she went away. "I never see a lady doctor afore," said old Mrs. Marlow, with a long sigh. "But she's a pretty creature, and it seems good to have her around. I hope she'll come again soon." "Vqu may be very sure of that," said the matron, brusquely. "Dr. Clarirnonl ain't one to neglect poor people because they are poor" That evening Aunt Jo, frying crullers over the kitchen fire, was surprised by i visit from her niece, who came in all wrap ped in f ars, with her «heeks crimsoned with the frosty winter air. "Bless me! this ain't never you!" said Aunt Jo, peering ever the rims of hei spectacles, "I drove over to see you, Aunt Jo,' said Mary, "to tell you that you were right. The metal was counterfeit." "Eh?" said Aunt Joe. mechanically ladling out the brown, curly crullers al though she did not look at what she. was doing, "I havejwritten to Harry Marlow, can celling our engagement," said Dr. Mary calmly, albeit her voice faltered a little "The man who will heartlessly let .his ol( mother go to the almshousOj sooner than to take the trouble to maintain ner, can be no fit husband for any woman." And then she sat down by the fire and told Aunt Jo everything, for crabbed crust.y old Aunt Jo had been like a mother to her, and the girl's, heart was full to over flowing. When sho had ceased speaking Aunt Jo nodded her head. "You have done well and wisely she. Old Mrs, Marlow died that winter in Aldenbury almshouse, with her head on Dr. Mary Clarimont's arm, and never knew that her garrulous confession_ hac deprived her son of his promised wife. And Mary saya quietly and resolutely that her profession must be husband anc home to her henceforward. • "Just what it ought to be," said Auni Jo.

Corner Wally and his partner, Mr. Rollins of Denver, . possess at their place o: business a decidedly novel, weird anc ghastly advertisement. In tho corner o their back room stands an ordinary looking pine box, such as is used to place around caskets in the grave. It stands upon one end, and hinges are at the sides A lid is opened and a startling sight is re vealed. Standing erect, with hands folded ii front and dressed in no remnant, except a similar garment to the one uswl by thr Yuma Indians, stands the dead body of a Samoan tattooed warrior who was known during life as Letungaifo and who died o consumption at St. Luke's hospital abou five weeks ago. The body was taken tc Ccroner Walley's on the day of death anc he had it embalmed. The eyes are open and the black hair and slight mustachi bristle put with peculiar freshness. From the w'aisce to the knees he has been tattoo ed.wilh blue ink so as to resemble a pai: of knee pants, it being one of the peculia customs of the country from whence hi came to so decorate the body of every inal as ?oon as he arrives at man's estate. From the peculiar history of this lonelj Pacific islander, who, it seems, riskecfhi life and assisted in saving the lives o many United States man-of-war duritu the terrible cyclone that swept over th island in March, 1889, it would seem tha the government, alone owed a debt of gral itude to him, to at least put him in proper resting place. Letungaifo was on of the five Samoans brought to this coun try by R. Cunningham Aug. 19,1889, an was to have exhibited with them, but ow ing to his health hejwas sent to the hos pital, and a few weeks after the departur of his countrymen he died, In obtainin. these five Samoans Mr. Cunningham ha great difficulty, as Mataafa, the king c of tho islands, will not allow an o* his subjects to leave, claiming it con trar'y to their law and custom. In the terrible cyclone in March 188? when the American men-of-war Trento and Vandalia were wrecked in the harbo Pago-Pago, in the island of Tutulia, th natives rescued the sailors by making human line out to reach them, thus enab ling them to get to the shoie. On thi occasion Letungaifo particularly distin guished himself for feats of bravery i saving the lives of several of (he crew, Growing Fodder Corn. A great improvement in the methor of grpwipg corn fodder has been made within the last thirty years. Once itwas always called "sowed corn," and those words implied the lack of cultivation which 'all sowed .crops get. Any farmer knows that corn, more than any other crop, requires cultivation, and a good deal of it, to get any grain. It equally needs cultivation to produce fodder 'worth Anything. The thin white stalks which thickly sowed cprn produces are. poor feed, and whjto.cpvys wi|l eat them, yet itttiey give much milk they must take -fat from their reserve stores to put into it.

Sirus, because of its brillancy, may no onU be supposed to be the nearest to tho -ars. Although it is not the nearest, it s among the nearest. We doubt if wo an give a very distinct impression of how ar Sirus is away; but let us see. From ere to the sun it is about ninctv-threo ullion miles. If we could travel toward he sun with the highest snood of an ex- ress train—say at the rato of sixty miles n hour, without stopin^day or night, and earing with us a charm against old age. we should reach our destination in about no hundred and sixty years.
