fflfi & , WED&ESfcAt, MMMf Off A EOf, . : , "It does not really seett possible,'' *ighed Mr. Simples,' as he folded his fcapkin, adjusted it accurately under the rini of his plate, and pushed back his chair from the breakfast table. "However earnestly one may try, it does not seeHi possible really to reach thesheaftoiaboy." Mis ffiaiden sister. Miss Simplex, «fiiffedj half scornfully, from behind the Coffee urn. "1 am ttot certain," she said severely, "that I am prepared to belieVe in the existence of such a thing as a (boy's heart. I dare say the little ani- taals have some sort of a muscular organ that pumps blood through their bodies. I ktioW that they have stomachs, and Jared certainly has brains, such as they are, but I am pretty sure boys do not possess hearts in any spiritual sense of that word. At all events, I have never been able to find them. Jared has none, that is Certain." 'Miss Simplex was Collecting 1 the glass and china, which always received her personal attention, meditating meantime in no hopeful frame of mind on the probable future of her yoMUg nephew, Who had been her particular charge and trial ever since the time, eight years before, when his pretty, delicate young mother had gathered the three-year-old toddler to 'her heart, kissed him for the. last time on earth, and charged him with her dying breath . to be a good boy and do as Auut Sarah bade him. Just now Jared was home from school in hopeless disgrace. "It '•seems impossible to make any impression ,.. upon, .him,' 1 ' "the 'principal /..^S-^i'-';?'^,.perhaps it will be as well to leave hiin**to : his own'desires fora while.". . His particular offense this time had been cutting up the leather covers of his grammar and making therefrom an elaborate pen wiper holder, soaking and embossing the leather 'very • cleverly witli the aid of his penknife and a key. When pttnished''/he'had taken the chastisement sullenly, and wholly refused to admit that lie was sorry for his wanton destruction of the bppk. "The insidc's just as good," he said, "an" I don't want the old :thing, anyway." >••••,-.• B ; ut:tho most repulsive feature of Jared's character, as Miss Simplex declared, as his anxious'.father noted, •and the principal regretted.,, was that he seemed incapable of loving anyone/ Silent, almost inorpse, he seemed cn- ; tirely to lack the ,'usual, impulse of ^.childhood to please. '".lie seems "to Bare more for a common dbg than for jjli'is own kind/' was one of his aunt's pvorried indictments against him, and, fearful lest so unnatural a tendency should be fostered, his father had re- Jquired Jared to part with the brokeu- jptailed mongrel cur that fo'r nearly a ,'year had been his most constant com- jlpanion, wandering with ,him in his long solitary woods tramps, and lying beside' him for hours"'on the hillsides in the sun, where he loved to spend his time, dreaming the long, long , thoughts of youth. 'Poor little, Jared! He had had an unhappy time at the morning meal, until at last, overcome with the sense •of disapproval with which the two "grownups" regarded him, he had fled from the room, seizing hat as he ran, and rushed for refuge to a favorite haunt of his beside a little stream up in the -hills. Poor little fellow! There he sat ? at the very moment wbftn his anxious father and aunt were so doubtfully discussing his future, staring with big, i-ound eyes into the swollen stream, thinking his boy's thoughts as only a boy can when the iron of this world's bitterness enters into his boyish soul. Who can tell the tormenting .thoughts teeming under the shocky hair—the doubts and wonderments of the bewildered boy soul, and the wild rebellion of the toiigh little heart iinder the shabby jacket? He fights hislanental and spiritual battles alone for the most part, for few understand the little animal—they're only boys, you know, and do not need the fostering care the little girls must have, •Only the mother usually gets down to the little, warm, loving, yearning, wondering 1 hear^ and she often, all : too soon, lets it go out alone to seek and slay its giants or be slain by them,' .Down in the damp grass, imder a tangle of swamp willow, Javed lay &nd thoueht. Was it really true that lie was a hardened sinner as Aunt sh said?

Surely-" • against red towlj i) ., inlying- v < J»r(i; ' " ^ •*' to his feet he looked hastily atxmt, him. The rain wna coming down irt great sheets; it seeme'er 1 to'Mm he had never before seen it fall so heavily., lie was saturated, soaked ahd dripping, and chilled to the Very bone. Again he heard that awful cry, but could see no one. flushing hastily forward in the direction from which it catne he suddenly found his way barred by a huge tree that, struck by the lightning, had fallen in the path. Beneath it, its terrible weight lying square across his body, lay a man. After an instant Jared recognized him as Sam Baker, a tramping farm hand, who had been about the village fora few Weeks, and had finally gone to Work for one of. the neighboring farmers. lie had been plowing in the field below when the storm came up, and ha$ stupidly taken refuge in the chimp of trees on tlip hillside, leaving his plow in the f iirrow and his horse still inspanncd to brave the storm alone. The tree under which he stood had been struck by lightning, and had fallen upon him.. It was smoking- a little where the branches forked- only the dampness keeping it from burning. ''Get it off! get it off!" the poor felloW shrieked as ho saw Jared. The boy was old for his years and uncommonly quick of wit, but his strength was wholly /inadequate to. move the tree. He pondered ''an in- stsint, amid the roars of .the storm and. the. screams of th« tortured man. and then rushed down thejiill and across the half-plowed field, wM.li its muddy fitrrows, to where the patient, lumbering, old; white plow horse stood, head down and his low-set, mongrel tail tur'npd to the storm. .To unspan him from the plow and, lead him up the hill wfas but the work of a minute. Thereins -had been lengthened.with .'•rope, and taking this Jared twisted it ahd'looped it firmly u>out the tree, hooking the singletr.e»,*'into it. Sam saw the idea and .its dangers. "If you' drag- that" tree across"' 'hie," he groaned, "you'll kill me. It must be' 'lifted." ; , ..-.Tared saw that his words were only too.truci Something, however,- must be; done. Sairj'.s shrieks had ceaeed,. but,he was still groaning in agony,' only ..failing strengtV hushing his cries. Down on his hjinds and knees Jared got, putting his .puny shoulder against.the trunk of the tree. Had .•his-.boy's-body been half as stout as his heart .he would Have lifted. When all was ready he gave the old White 1 ' horse the word to g;o forward. The •chain .tightened and with strength -.born-of-his extremity the'boy raised' his back, fairly forcing himself 'beneath the tree, giving it an.upward impetus as .the horse dragged it forward. ' He was.'-not able to'lift, save fora/single instant, but that served to carry it free from Sam's chest and head, ami when it fell from the man's body, 'Jared, too, fell forward with' a strange, suffocating sense of op- s press,ion in his chest.. After a minute ho rallied and staggered to his feet. Sam was iinconseious and lay upon his back, the rain beating down upon his face, and mingling with tho blood that flowed from a" dreadful wound in his breast. It was \plain, even to Jared, that ho would die if help was not quickly brought. It was a mile to the village, and he , felt sick to death himself, • but, gathering his little strength; pulled the harness and tugs from the horse's shoulders—•' the collar was beyond- his ability to move—tied up the reins and clambered upon his back. . The awkward creature was unused to being ridden, and he started, swirling and plunging. Jared tucked one arm itnder tho big collar, seized the reins in. the othor hand and dug his heels into the horse's sides. A sharp flash came just then, and the quickly- following thunder clap added to the animal's terror. The big, lumbering brute sprang forward with a lunging attempt at a run, which finally settled into a blundering, three-cornered gallop as he tore down the hill, sending the dump earth up behind him in great clods from his enormous hoofw. At every rise Jared had all he could do to keep from going over the animal's great chuckle head; at every impact of the shovel-like feet upon the ground the breath seemed about to leave the boy's body, but he clpng grimly, urging his ungainly steed on as though death followed behind, One by one the familiar landmarks were passed on the road to the village. Straight down the single' street he rode, and pullec] vein in front of the one store that was trading place, postotfice, duhrooin and ' general lounging stand for the whole neigh' borhood, "There's that young imp, the Sim. plex boy, on my old BJH," shouted Briggs as Jared fairly threw himself to the ground, while the still Jr-lgh.toned brute rushed on again. r§iijsved of his rider- "Drat that boy! at that.

Tests of flood Silk, The woman who buys a silk dress only onc'e in a decade can illy att'ord to find that she has chosen a poor piece—one that cuts or tears or frays ,or.wears shiny or greasy looking. Costliness is no guarantee of worth. It will be worth the small outlay, says Harper's Bazar, to buy an eighth of a yard and test it in the leisure of your home. The first thing to do is to try.and tear it, both lengthwise and crosswise. If it gives way readily in either direction, be sure either that the dye has destroyed the strength, or that the thread is composed in part of what is technically known as silk waste. Pure silk, properly dyed, is the strongest known fiber. Nearly all the ; cheaper dyes, particularly the dark .and black ones, have a basis : -of me-, tu.llic salts that cat into and -weaken what they'colbr. Next test the firm- ^css of weave' by scraping diagonally across the fabric with the thumb nail. Xf it is dtirable and worth buying the. .threads will not slip for any amount. of : manipulation. .Otherwise the thumb nail will soon make a space of loose threads as big- as itself. ' After that ravel out-a bit"'of the silk, a'nd look carefully at the quality of both warp and woof.: Spmethncs a puro silk warp has heavily'loaded'"woof. At others, especially in satin weaves, so much of the woof as comes on the surftice is of ptir^ .silk, with: inferior, backing.. . The piirc silk imlpaded, is of a lively. lust;ro and very soft to the touch. If .the lustre has been artificially produced the fiber feels ; harsh and brittle. If it is silk, but loaded •with metallic die, the fiber looks liko cotton but is somew'hat softer. '" .... Another test of quality is to piill out threads both ways and try their strength between your fingers. That, is, catcli tliem with''both hands about, ati inch apart, give a quick, outward jerk, anc\note the force necessary to .break thorn. Then try to tear the silk along the lines that, tho threads came out of. If it parts so. difficultly that there are puckers along the tear,, it is proof that it will wear decently well. The supreme test of all, though, for either weighing or adulteration of fiber, is to:-burn a fragment of the stuff, and also some ravelingsof it. If it is pure and. properly ' dyed it will take fire with difficulty, even when held directly4n flame. It will go out almost as sooii as .the flame is withdrawn, leaving- ashes that are nearly jdt black. On the other /hand, weighted silk is almost dangerously inflammable. It takes fire .-readily, and once'; burning will smolder through the' piece, leaving 1 ashes that keep the shape of the cloth and are of light yellowish-rod color. If there is cotton mixed with tho fiber tho smell of the sinoka will betray it. 'A. Japanese Girl Student. Radclift'e college, formerly Harvard annex, has among its undergraduates this year the first Japanese girl who has come to this country for an education, iShe is Miss Shid-Mori, and she is described as a charming combination of Japanese features, English dross, American co'rttuvo, and Japanese-Anglo language. She had been at Radpliite since the beginning of the midwinter terra, but she had been keeping shyly out of sight until one night, when there was an entertain^ ment given by Dr. Sargent's school, Then the shy little Japanese maid came forth and gave a juggling exhibition with as much ease -*s if she were on a New York variety stage instead of pursuing a classical education ip Cambridge, Sinpe that time, she has been very muoh the fashion.

T3iis is a very pretty way of displaying four photographs; it may easily be fhodined so as to hold a larger or ft smaller number, and the frames may, if preferred, be cut square, or round, Of dval, or shield-shaped^ A sheet di vefj^ stout cardboard is needed for the ffdfot, and a piece of rather thinner make for the back. In the thick sheet cut four oval spaces. These may give some trouble to the amateur, BO it is as well, perhaps, to get a pro* fessional mount cutter to arrange this, as he has the means of planning thcim accurately and spacing them properly. The second and thinner sheet of cardboard should be cut exactly tha saUio shape and size as the thick piece, but it ueed have no openings. He fore covering tho front of the frame, take a brush filled with gold paint -and color the edge of the oval openings with it. Then lightly gum the card, lay a sheet of wadding over it and cover this place with a piece of brocade. Press this down well, especially round the openings, but carry the outer edges of the material over to the wrong side of the cardboard and gum them down well there. When the gum is dry cut away the brocade and tho wadding from above the openings. Take next some colored ribbon about an inch wide, and lay a lengih between each of the openings for the photographs and hold it down with an invisible stitch placed here and there. The edge of the openings must now be finished with a line of narrow gold gimp, which can most easily be se* cured with a very little glue, care being taken that this does not run beyond the edges. A bow of ribbon should now be placed at the top^&nd bottom, the, iippor one of the. -two having^a loop added to it by which the frame can be hung up. ,a,Tho outer edge'of the frame is finished off in a very pretty and novel style. Procure some large crystal beads and ,a quantity of pins with colored glass heads, such as are used hi making macrame lace. Pass a pin through each head and then stick it into the edge of the frame. Allow a space equal to tho width of a bead ;beivveen each one, and vary the colors according to fancy and according to the prevailing tint of the brocade. .The next thing .to do is to fix tho photographs at'the opening., made, -for them. A touch of gum at the corners will be all-sufiicient to hold them, and, care must be taken I to place them quite evenly and straight upon the card. Now cover the thinner-piece of. card which has been reserved for the. back and hold it with a few stitches taken through the edges hc're and there, at intervals of an ineh or two all round. Potatoes for a Week. On. Sunday have them mashed—not pounded into a sodden mass, but whisked into a creamy substance.

"MILWAUKEE, Wis., July SO. — Commissioner Bloodgood yesterday shut off all investigation as to the sources of the information contained in the complaints upon which the striking railroad men were arrested, and would not permit any questions tending to show that the complaining witness had been actuated by malice. Superintendent McKenna said there •was -a general strike and tie-up, and he knew some of the defendants. He, had been told they went out. His testimony finished the government's case unless Judge Seaman should decide that Debs' telegrams should be introduced. Mr. Timlin £ave notice that Friday, when Mulford's case would be argued, he would move for the discharge of the following defendants on the ground that no evidence whatever had been produced against them: E.
