The weather has been, somewhat milder for several days past; and somi of our old prophets have predicted ai early gprtag, while we all hope it ma} be so; Bitting by the preside,these cole wintery days and nlghU is very pleas ant for a while, but becomes monot onous .when continued to long, and w< commence to look and long for tin bright days of spring, and to set th< green grass grow again.

Mrs. Oscar Patridge, of Corao, and Mrs. Oscar Scott, of Sterling, were visiting Mrs. D. A. Donichy, Wednesday last. Willie King night operator at Ashton was home Monday visiting his morther. The ladles of Nelson spent a very .pleasant day at Mrs. Young's last Thursday. Some of them partook a little to freely of 'Mrs. Young's good dinner and suffered the consequences; but they could not help it every thing tasted so good. I heard one man say he envied Mr. Stitzel his position on that day; he being the only male member at the little party.. Last Friday was examination day in our school here, and our lady teacher Miss Forsyth, it very much pleased at the progress her pupils have made during the present term.' -Miss Laura deserves great praise for the well regulated school she keeps and the Interest she has taken in her scholars. I understand Miss Mary Detrlck Is having another of those nervous attacks which troubled her so much last .summer. Mr E. J. Ilollenbeck, our raiser and grower of .Chester white swine and light brahama chickens, is doing a good business and says be can scarcely supply the demand for the same. Hay is a very scarce article In thin vicinity at present and the price very high, several of our farmers having to buy this .early in the spring. Frank Stevens has his sale Thursday next, Feb. 9th. Louii Long will have a sale February 27th. The boys around here are not in love with chopping wood, although necessity compels them to swing the ax. , Several of our Nelson men will go to Morrison courting ttiis week.

M!«s Carmen, who hnd » very vngne idea of whrtt R rnnch wan. cunfUH- Ing It In her mind wlih cowlxiyo, plundered coaches and rescued mnideiis, considered Mr. Tlmvnnl one of those reclitimed vlctiiriR of it life of dlsulpatlon (he was, by the way, when Blurinot him, Just 23 years old), though he hnd in reality never done anything particularly wrong In his life. Miss Ciirmen belonged to that class of women one never knows how to speat of, whether ns ft "Imly" or "yonng Indy," unless one Is addressing the person herself, when one is apt to venture on the Intter term. And it must also be acknowledged she could not resist the, attraction of a man who was "turning over B uew leaf;" this species sometime* even took precedence of her charity In her favor, and that Is paying a good deal, for her charity, whatever It happened at the time to be, was so dear to her heart It made her almost a dread to her friends. Perhaps yon met her in a Btoi-e; before you conld hurry by with a, "Good morning, Miss Carmen," she would stop you: "Oh, Laura Lnfurge, you're the very girl I want to see. I \vntit you to take a liooth at the fair next week for the churity. Yon can have any booth you wish, but won't you be in the 'Mikado?', I want girls who will get up handsome costumes, and you know, with your taste," etc. Or: "Margaret Wyndoff, I'm so glad I've met yon; Jnst step aside here a moment, will youf I'm going to ask yon to help me In a little International ten I'm getting np for those poor—anch poverty, such distress, I can't tell yon. how they appeal to me. Now do promise to furnish flowers and appear In the Greek group—the costumes will be very simple, and I've asked for veil," etc. Or on the street: "Good morning,' Mr. Garey, won't you turn around and walk with me a few moments', I'm gointftoHska favor of you, which I want you to promise to grant mei It's really nothing at, ull for you'to do, and it Is for n very worthy charity; young Mrs. Carley hns Bald she will be I^ady Washington, and I want yon to be George-In an old time tea party." And often liefore you can n-fiisn she is gone, with "Good-by; \ knew you would; BO kind of you; good-by." Now it was theatricals, and for the Mexican Indians again. Her friends, to tell the truth, were getting a little tired of doing for these creatures. They had been to tens for them, to a klrmess for them, to tableaux, to lectures for them; enough of tilings to have educated whole trlbea of them, Mrs. Ned Brown said, if they had only been .there themselves. And, she added, she really didn't see why they should be mtido to suiter and pay \xMi\ If they mnst glvo these things, give them, but make the Indians go themselves. Ifowevcr, Mrs, Brown WHS a flighty little, woman .whom -every one laughed at In their sleeve, while people all did admire Miss Carmen, though they were getting a little tired of their charities. , . \ All these things Miss Carmen felt iu an Indefinite sort of way as she came home from the mission school om? nfternoon. It was Mr. Howard's mission and he had spoken so beautifully to the poor children that day. But then he always did. He lad spoken BO kindly to her, too; nome- low or other gome people seemed to take it for granted that Hhe could go out in any- kind of weather, with no matter how bad ! a cold, without any danger. And today : had been-her birthday, she did not think .what birthday, the fact itself was Imd .enough without being numbered. She ^as getting old, she thought with a sigh; ,dear me, much too old to be thinking BO much of this handsome young minister, and much too old to have that drop on her cheek; she must walk fititeraml think of something else, And yes, she would nsk her sitter to take her mission rlasa, at least for.awhlla. ,Slie passed a, wretched beggar sitting- on the curb grinding a small organette that had stops nearly a minute long between each note. Miss Carmen' looked quickly around and then, furtively dropped a quarter Into the tin cup, and passed on. She had been told duch charity was misapplied, but then she had felt just llko It and was willing to run th* risk. So Mr. Howard WHS really going back to Mexico, not as a ranch man this time, but as a missionary. What should she do when he was gone—what, had It come to tula? She must thlnk~of something else, and she hurried on, without noticing two young girls who passed her quickly. "I was afraid she would see ns," oneof them said. , "I know she'd ask me to be in a booth or-t«ke ; part In those theatricals." Girls who never did any good in the world, and probably never would, who would not even appreciate the self sacrificing labor of Miss Carmen. Undoubtedly the lattt-r did luck judgment, or let us say moderation, but In her proper sphere, or under able guidance, what might she not accomplish? She found a note at home for her from Uliss Tower, saying she was sorry, but her health was so wretched this winter her physician had tabooed theatricals. She also found Mr, Garey's card, with a hasty note oh the back, which read how much he regretted he would not be able to take the part Miss Carmen had kindly assigned to him. Miss Chrrueu sat down and cried. She knew it was silly, but she didn't care. She was tired out and over worried and she threw herself down on her couch and had a "good cry." She- was bathing her eyes and smoothing, her halt when the maid brought her Mr. Howard's card. She put in another hair pin and then went right down. • . , "Oh," she said,, without even greeting him, "I'm perfectly wretched! Two of my jr«ople have backed out. I did think when I had only three in the play I should have no trouble, .huJt th»,pnly two who can act won't net. Whut shall I do?" And she luuxhvd nervously, feeling dan geroutiy near her mood upstairs. Howard felt yery sorry for her, sasorry he.diil not knov what to say. Finally he mur- Sinrud; ''I wish I could help yoo; of eoonce Icouldn'f, act—but can't, you?" h, added, quickly, as the thought came to bito. '-Why don't yontako Miss Tower's part?" Miss Carmen blushed ami laughed. ''Oh, nol I ant too old; 1 couldn't." And Howard answered: "How absurd, Mls» Carmen; you know you"— And then stopped embarraa««d. Be knew she was older than he; he hud deplored that often, especially of late. He WHS afraid perhaps the looked down on him. II« did not tare aboat age. "I am getting so dlftconraged," th* went on, "I am alwsja trying to help or do good In, soon* w«y, but I dou't a**m to aticc*ed. My waj 1» not th« riaht oa»; I'TO or,»dons It. F«opl« art getting Urvd of my a Pome Ti^iif^t uoric myself." An Idprv was forming in llmvnrd's mind, nil* full of hop*. He n-nld five her the opportunity ghe wi«lipd fnr. His apt* ought not tn bo a atimiiilini; block; he was BUT" he could not love her inure dearly \rern lie twenty or thirty yi-ars oM^r than ho was—and just then a ynnng lady wns announced. Oh. Aimii'l'' OM'Inlmed Ml" Carmen, I'm so glnil you've rnme; I am In tlm rentiM trouble. Will you help me?" Of rniiiMn I will if 1 can, but you must tell «h;it. it i" brfnra I promise, and I warn you iK'forehand, I refu*? to be a Re- tjecrn nnd sell lemonade, and on no account will 1 dress myself up for a Japanese \vonuiu. I did It once and It ivan too hideously iin^MTomirtg; notf tell me"— "I only want you," continued Miss Carmen, "lo take part in a little play to be ?lven privnfety here—O, excuse me, Mr. Howard—Miss Gordon, my rector, Mr. Howard. I am so upset, you know, I quite forgot myself. Thu play is for"— "The Mexican Indians," Miss Gordon interrupted; "I knew it; well, why don't you nsk Grace Henley?" I did, and she refn.ied." 'Bell Matthews then, she acts." 'Her mother wont let her." 'Why not, Mrs. Porter?" 'Her husband doesn't approve." 'How alisurd! What's the matterwlth 3ue Tower?" 'Oh, her physician has forbidden her Rctlne,_niKl_yi>u..'re-_tb.o only_ one left;J._ wouldn't nsk you for I know you arc very busy, but I am getting desperate." Miss Gordon said she would do what she could, and took the play book home With her, though she told Miss Carmen she :onldn't promise to be a credit to her. 5he agreed too to find a man for her vis- a-vis, and left her friend radiant onea more. "You don't know what a load you've taken off, my mind," the latter said to Annie, as she went, away with Mr. Howard, forgetting how long he was holding her hand until Annie coughed. Miss Gordon told her mother that night If ihcre was not so great a difference iu their ages she would think there was something between them. But the next day—well, Miss Carmen said she would have, to laugh, if she did not she would have to cry again,, it was so crushing. It reminded her of the time she had a beautiful portiere embroidered to raffle for the benefit of some poor mission, and the minister,.who wns t opposed to raffles, persuaded her they were wrong. No one wa-s willing to pay what the portiere was worth, so it ended In .her buying It herself and giving up her Washington trip that winter. Now today the noon mall brought a letter from Annlo Gordon, who wrote to know why in the world she didn't tell, her there was singing in the part, and asking her If she did not know that she, Annie, could not sing a note. And in the same mall came a letter from the brother of Mr. White, who had bceu her stand by nil through, saying his brother had the measles, nnd so, of courso. would not be able, etc. The the- ptricaK looked dubious. In the midst of her consiernatiou Mr. Howard arrived on the scene. She gave him a trembling hand, and was as, frightened an could bo lest she should cry. He told her almost immediately what ha had come, to ask. "I.know I'm young," he stammej-ed. "O, nol" she interrupted, "I am uld." But what followed is theirs, not ours, nor Mrs. Brown's, who said afterward: "What Is the man thinking of? She's old enough to be his motherl" She was not really, though what if she were if they loved each other? An Howard started to leave at dusk, after he -and Miss Carmen had fully discussed the advantages of Mexico for a honeymoon and for work, she said to him! "It will be a wedding instead of theatricals." "Yes, and you will play the heroine after all," he answered. "If you'd llko to have me ask Miss Gordon"—but ^ never finished that speech. —•William Clyde Fitch in New York News. WHY nil.i. vor rniiph .when Hhiloh's Cure will jtivo you immediutf relief.

The only reason for not doing so Is the hardships she must go through to get a position, the percentage of failures is so much larger than that of successes. Why, leaving out the Mojea- kas anil the Clara Morrises, you can count on your lingers the ambitious young girls who have- Itecome successful stars. The great cause of failure is vanity, both with -women and men. A girl says to herself, 'I have a pretty face,' or 'a handsome flg- nre,' and when she is before the footlights that is all she thinks of. So much study, oh, so inuch'atudy is necessary to success. If a girl has talent and a steady head, iand must work for a living, then, I say, let heir try the stage. Dollars and cents are tho best Incentive, because when It is a matter of bread and butter she feels that she must study, must constantly improve. "The temptations of the stage? Well, they are not so great that a girl with the qualities of success can not resist them. The rales of theaters nowadays are so strict that a girl who obeys them has no difficulty In going right. She must take care of her health and she must study, or she will not succeed, and if she does both she has no time to go wrong, no time for midnight suppers or much company. She must have sense enough to know that the compliments and attentions of admirers are not always well meant. There Is, Indeed, very little vice on tho stage. Oh, I have known so many beautiful lives on the stage.—Annie Plxlev, in New York Mall and Express. Dark. Uaya of tt&« Confederury. The subject'of lights was another with which it was fonnd difficult to contend. Tallow was used freely during the first years of the war; old candle molds were brought out from their hiding places and put to use, and tallow dips became as familiar to us as they had been to our forefathers. But the source, of supply for these "lights of other days" soon became, exhausted, and woman's ingenuity was again put to the test. Lard also had been in frequent rise, and a favorite light was a saucer or can filled with this melted substance wherein floated a burning sycamore ball. It, too, was growing scarce, however, and a new material must be evolved. Several things were tried, but a mixture of beeswax and rosin was found best of them all. Through this mixture, when melted, a long coil of candle wirking was drawn again and again, until thoroughly coated, and-in order to make this coating even several persons stood in a row holding the wlck» ing at short Intervals and shaping the wax upon it as It passed through their hands. The position of greatest honor and difficulty lu this undertaking was conceded to be the one nexj; to the pan containing the heated melted mixture. When cold, this waxen rope was wound, row after row, aronnd.a bottle, with the free end put through a strip of tin with a hole In It in order to hold it upright. These candles gave forth a meager but a steady light. "Candlemaklngbees" were quite the style, and young ladles and their military • beaux "on leave" managed to exact a great deal of merriment from them.
