"1 shall be ehnrrned." said Sir Oswald— "really delighted, I /idv liniiiploi). Von do me Krent honor Indeed."

Miss Hastings, ho must marry." "I can only suppose," replied the governess, "that ii« will please himself, Lady iiaiiiplon, without any leleriuea to the county." ClIAlTKlt VI. CAPTAIN I.ANOTIIM. June, with Its roses and lilies, passed on, the laburnums had all fallen, the lilies had vanislii-tl. and still the state of affairs at Darrell Court remained doubtful. I'.iiillne, in many id those respects in which her uncle would I'aui have seen her eh-.uiged, remained unaltered—Indeed It was not easy to unlearn tho teachings of a lllc-tlinc. Miss Hastings, more patient and hopeful than Sir Oswald, persevered, with Inlinlte tact and discretion, lint there were certain peculiarities of which Paulino could not bo broken. One, was n habit of calling every- thlngiby its right name. She. [mil no notion of using any of thoso polite little nations society delights In; no mailer how harsh, how ugly tlio words, she did not hesitate to use It. Another peculiarity was that of tolling the blunt, plain, abrupt truth, no matter what Ihey cost, no matter who was pained. Sho tore aside tlio flimsy veil of society with zest; she spared no one in her almost ruthless denunciations. Her intense scorn for all kinds of polite llctlon was somewhat annoying. "You need not say that I am engaged, James," sho said, one day, when n lady called whom she disliked. "I am not engaged, but I do nut care to see Mrs. Camden." Even that bland functionary looked annoyed. Miss Hastings tried to make some compromise. "You cari'not send such a mcssago as that, Miss Darrell. Pray listen lo reason." "Sir Oswald and yourself agreed that sho was " "Never mind that," hastily Interrupted Miss Hastings. "Yon must not hurt any one 's feelings by such a blunt message us that; It is neither pollio nor well-bred." "I shall never cultivate cither politeness or good breeding at tho cxpensu of truth; therefore you had hotter sond the message yourself. Miss Hustings." "I will do so," said tlio governess, quietly. "I will inanngo It In sueli'a way as to show Mrs. Camden that alio Is not expected to call »galn, yet so ns not to lininlllnto lior before thosorvrtnts; but, remember, not at any sacrlllce of truth." Such contests were of dally, almost hourly, occurrence. Wlintlicr tho result would be such a decree of training ns to lit tlio young lady for tailing tlio position she wished to occupy, remained doubtful. "This Is really very satisfactory," said Sir Oswald, abruptly, one morning, as ho entered the library, whoro Miss Hastings awaited him. "But," ho continued, "before I explain myself, let we nsk you how are you getting on— what progress are you making with your tlresomo puplll"' Tho gentle heart of the governess was grieved to think that she could not givo a more satisfactory reply. Little real progress had been mndo In study; less In manuor. "There Is u mass of splendid mnturlal. Sir Oswald," sho said; "hut the tlllUculty lies In putting It Into'shape." "I am afrakVMie observed, '.'people will make remarks; and 1 have hoard more than ono doubt expressed as to what kind of hands Darrell Court is likely to fall* Into should 1 nmltu Pauline my heiress. Yon see she Is capable of almost anything. She would turn the place Into mi asylum; she would transform It into a college for • philosophers, a home for needy .artists—In fact, anything that might occur to her— without the least hesitation." Miss Hastings could not deny It. They were not speaking of a manageable nineteenth century voting lady, but of one. to whom u'o -ordhmryrules applied, whom no customary measures tlttod. "1 have a letter here," continued. Sir Oswald, "from Captain Aubrey Lnngton, the son of one of my oldest and dearost friends. Lie proposes to pay mo a visit, and—pray,. Miss Hustings, pardon ine for suggesting such a thing, but I should be so glad If he would fall In love with Paulino. I have an idea that love might educate and develop Iter moro quickly tlinn anything else." Miss Hastings had already thought the sniuo thing; hut sho knew whoever won the. lovo of siioh » girl as Pauline Darrell would .booiiu of the cleverest of men. 'i "1 n)n writing to him to tell him that I hop.fi he will .remain with us for a month; and (lining that time I hope, 1 fervently' hope, ho may full In love with niy niece. She Is beautiful enough.

Tins fact see'ined W Sir Oswald stranger than any otlwr; ho Uasl an Idea, that girls devoted jho greater parff o( their thoughts to sued subjects. I , ,, ' ' '«pS you 1 th'lnkV^fio Inquired, "that wred Jotany one in Paris—any of thow men, forliuthnoa, whom she used toutoetat, liar fatlier*»»" " 1 *jT- %o," replied M1& Kaatliifst "1 do mt 'snoh resj ^^oltti6«gh sho was' bWMttW ontlieii RiivuiKKentlcineu," <*r- <',WrWd'toplc' 'lAmim^mqrimm dear mfamft IUIU nis niece ot tne exported arrival or captain Langton. "I have seen so few English gentlemen," sho remarked, "that he will bo a subject of some curiosity to me." "You will lind him—that In, If he resembles his father—a high-bred, noble gentleman," said Sir Oswald, complacently. "Is he clover?" sho asked. "What doea he dor "Dot" repeated Sir Oswald. "I do not understand you." "Docs ho paint pictures or wrlto books? - ' "Heaven forbid I" cried Sir Oswald, proudly. "He Is a gentleman." Ucr face flushed hotly for some minutes, and then the flush died away, leaving her paler than ever. "I consider artists and writers gentlemen," sho retorted—"gentlemen of a far higher stamp than those to whom fort- te has given money and nature has denied brains." Another time a sharp argument would hnvo resulted from tho throwing down of such a gauntlet Sir Oswald had something else in view, so he allowed the speech to pass, "It will be n great pleasure for me to seo my old friend's son again," bo said. "I hope, Pauline, you will help mo to make his visit a pleasant one." "What can I do?" sho asked, brusquely. "What a question I" laughed Sir Oswald, "Say rather, what can you not do? Talk to him, sing to him. Your voice is magnillceut, and would give any ono the greatest pleasure. You can rido out with him." "If lie Is a clever, sensible man, I can do all that you mention; If not, 1 shall not trouble myself about him. I never could endure either tiresome or stupid people." "My young friend Is not likely to provo either," said Sir Oswald, angrily; and Miss Hastings wondered In her heart what tlio result of it all would lie. That same evening Miss Darroll talked of Captain 1/ington, weaving many bright fancies concerning him. "1 suppose," she said, "that it Is not always tho most favorablo specimens of the English who visit Paris. Wo used to seo such droll caricatures. I like a good caricature abovo all things—do yon, Miss Hastings?" "When It Is good, and pains no one," was the senslblo reply. Tlio girl turned away with a llttlo Impatient sigh. "Your ideas aro all colorless," sho said, sharply. "In England it seems to mo that everybody Is alike. You have no individuality, no character." "It character means. In your sense of the word, ill-nature, so much the better," rejoined Miss Hustings. "All goodhearted pcoplo strive to save each other from pain." "I wonder/' said Pauline, thoughtfully, "if I shall like Captain Langton! Wu havo been living here quietly euough; but 1 feel as though sonio great ciiango were coming. You have no doubt experienced that peculiar sensation which comes over one just before a heavy thunder-storm? I havo that strange, half-nervous, half-restless sensation now." "You will try to be amiable, Paulino," put In the governess, quietly. "You see that Sir Oswald evidently thinks a great deal of this young friend of Ills. You will try not to shock your uncle in any way—not to violate those little conventionalities that lie respects so much." "I will do my best; but 1 must bo myself— always myself, I cannot assume a false character." "Then let It be your better self," said tho governess, gently; and for ono minute Pauline Darrell was touched. "That sweet creature, l.ady Hampton's niece, will lie hero next week," she remarked, after a short pause. "What changes will bo brought Into our lives, I wonder?" Of all the changes possible, least of all she expected tho tragedy that afterwords happened. cnAFTER vn. TUB INTRODUCTION. n ncver-to-bc-forgottcn It was a ncver-to-bc-forgottcn evening When Captain Langton Touched Darrell Court —an evening fair, bright, and calm. Tho sweet southern wind boro tho perfume of flowers; tho fi.lnt ripples of the fountains, tho musical song of tho birds seemed almost to die away on tho evening breeze; tho sun appeared unwilling to leave tho sapphire sky, the flowers unwilling to close. Paulino bad lingered over her books until she could remain in-doors no longer; then, by Miss Hastings advice sho drcsssd for dinner which was dolayed an hour—afterward wcntuito the garden. Most girls would have remembered, as they dressed that a handsome young olllccr was coming; Miss Darrell did not mako tho least chango In her usual tullot. Tlio thin, lino dress of crape foil in statuesque folds round tho splendid figure; the dark hair was drawn back from the beautiful brow, and negligently fastened with her favorlto silver arrow; the white neck and fair rounded arms gleamed like white marble through tho thin folds of criipo. There was not tho least attempt at ornament; yet no queen arrayed In royal robes evev looked more lovely. Pauline was a great lover of tho plotur- esque. With a slnglo flower, n solitary knot ot ribbon, she could produce an effect which many women would give nil tliolr Jowols to achieve. Whatever alio wore took a kind of royal graco from herself which no other person could Impart Though her dress might be mado of the samo material as that of others, It never looked the same. On her It appeared like the robes of a queen. As Paulino was passing through the corridor, Miss Hastings met her. The governess looked scrutlnltlngly at the plain evening dress; it was the same that sho had worn yesterday. Evidently there was no girlish desire to attract "Pauline, we shall have a visitor this evening." said Miss Hasting?- **vou nilelit add a tew towers to your dress." She passed on, with a smile ot assent Almost the first thing that caught her attention out of doors was a largo and handsome fuchsia. She gathered a spray of the rich purple and crimson flowers, and placed It negligently In her hair. Many women would have stood before their minor for an hour without producing the same superb effect Then she placed another spray of tlio samo gorgeous flower In the bodice of her dress. It was all done without effort, and she would have been the last In the world to suspect how boautlful she looked. Then sho went on to tho fountain, for the beautiful, calm evening had awakened all the poet's soul within her. Tho grand, sensitive nature thrilled—the beautiful, poetical mind reveled In this hour of nature 's most supremo lowliness. A thousand bright f aneles surged through her heart and brain; a thousand poetical Ideas shaped themselves Into words, and rose to her tins. . So time passed, and she was uncor.BClous of It, until a shadow falling over the great white lilies wuniod her that someone was near. •' v"'" 1 -. v.;' Looking up quickly, she saw a tall, fair, handsome young man gazing at her with mingled admiration and surprise, Beside him stoop. Sir Oswald, courtly, traclous, and evidently on tho alert '•Captain Langton," ho said, "let me Introduce you to my nleco,Wl8S Darrell,", Not ono feature of the girl's proud, benutl- lUiraco moved,, out. were was soma m W curiosity in her dai'K oyes, Thoy rested tor a moment on the ' captain 's .face,' and then, with a droainy look, sho glanced oyer the heads of the s white lilies behind hhn: lie ;was not her Ideal, not her hero, ovhiently,, In that one keen, quick glance, she read not only tlio faco, but the heart and soul of the man before her. The captain, felt as though he 'tiad been subjected to some wonderful inlcroscopio. •xamlmitlou. i, Who Is omv of those dreadfully sltrewd ! «lrls Uuvtpretend to/read faces,"' lie said, to; 'blrosfllf,'while he bowed low before her. and WM wttJ} enthusiasm |p, tueJuWueUon, * tmt uleee WWM Darftll," 'mtl»^ hours In which to be dull," said l'auiraa. "Do you like the country so well?" "I like Darrell Court," ho replied, with • bow that seemed to embrace Sir Oswald, his niece, and all his possessions. "You like It—In what way?" asked Panline, In her terribly downright manner. "It Is your first visit and you havo been hers only a few minutes. How can you toll whether yon llko It?" For a few moments Captain Langton looked slightly confused, and then he rallied. Surely a man of the world was not to be defied by a mere girl. "1 have seen that at Darrell Court," h# said deferentially, "which will make tb» place dear to mo while I live." She did not understand hhn. Site was fat too frank and haughty for a compliment so broad. Hut Sir Oswald smiled. "Ho is losing no time," thought tho stately old baronet; "he is falling In love with her, Just as I guessed ho would." "1 will leave you," said Sir Oswald, "to get better acquainted. Pauline, you will show Captain Langton tho aviary." "Yes," BIIO assented, carelessly. "Bnt will you send Miss Hastings here? She knows tlio various birds far better than I do." Sir Oswald, with a pleased expression on his face, walked away. "So you have an aviary at the Court, Miss Darrell. It seems to me there Is nothing wanting here. You do not seem Interested; do you not llko birds?" "Not caged ones," she replied. "I Iov» birds almost as though they were living friends, but not brlght-phimaged birds In golden cages. Thoy should be free and wild In woods and forests, filling tho summer air with Joyous song. I lovo them well then." "You llko unrestricted freedom?" he observed. "I do not merely like It, I deem It an absolute necessity. 1 should not care for life without It" The captain looked moroattentlvolyatlicr. It was tho Darrell face, surely enough—features of perfeot beauty, with a Boul of fire shining through them. "Yet," lie said, musingly, cautiously feeling his way, "there Is but littlo freedom- true freedom—for women. Thoy aro bound down by n thousand narrow laws ond observances—caged by a thousand restraints." "There is no power on earth," she returned, hastily, "that can control thought! oi cage souls; while they are free. It Is untrue to say that there Is no freedom." A breath of fragrant wind came and stirred tho great white lilies. The gallant captain saw at once that he should only lose in arguments with her. "Shall we visit the aviary?" he asked. And site walked slowly down the path, he following. "She is liko an empress," he thought "It will bo all the more glory for me if 1 can win such a wile for my own." CHAPTER VIII. T11K UIIOKEtf J.II.V. Paulino Darrell was a keen, shrewd observer of diameter. She Judged more by small actions than by great ones; It was a characteristic of hors. When women have that gilt, it is more to bo dreaded than the cool, calm, matured Judgment ot men. Men err sometimes m their estimate or character, but it Is very seldom that a woman makes a similar mistake. Tlio garden path widened where tlio tall white lilies grew in rich profusion, nnd there Pauline ami Captain Langton walked side by side. Tho rich, sweet psrfuine seemed to gather round thein, nnd the dainty flowers, witli their shining leaves and golden bracts, looked liko great white stars. Captain Langton carried a small cane In his hand. Ho had begun to talk to Paulino with great animation. Her proud indllfcr- cuce piqued liim. He was accustomed to something more like rapture when ho do- voted himself to any fair lady. Ho vowed to himself that lie would vanquish her pride, that he would make her care for him, that the prowl, dark eyes should soften nnd brighten for hhn; nnd liu gave his whole mind to the conquest. As ho walked along, one of tho tall, white lilies bent over the path; with ono touch of tlio cano hi> beat It down, and Paulino gavo a llttlo cry, as though tho blow had pained her. Sho stopped, and taking ttio slcuuor green stem m her hand, straightened It; but the blow had broken one of the white leaves. ' "Why did you do thut?" sho nsked. In a pained voice. "It is only a flower," ho replied, with a laugh. "Only aflowcrl You havo killed it Yon cannot mako it livo again. Why need you hnvo cut Us sweet llfo short?" "It will not bo missed from among so many," bo said. "You might say the samo thing of yourself," she retorted. "Tho world Is full of men and yon would hardly bo missed from so many; yotyou would not like " "There is some llttlo difference between a man and a flower, Miss Darrell," he Interrupted, stiffly. "Tlioro is, Indeed; and the flowers have thottdvantago," she retorted. Tho captain solaced himself by twisting his mustache and relieved his feelings by some few muttered. words, which Miss Darroll did not hoar. In her quick, Impulsive way, sho Judged him at onco. "Ho Is cruel and solllsli," sho thought; "ho would not oven stoop to wive tho llfo of the sweetest flower that blows, lie shall not forget killing that lily," she continued, as sho gathered tho broken chalice, nnd placed It In her bolt "Every time ho looks at mo," she said, "he shall remember what bo has done." The captain evidently understood her aml- nblo tntontlon, nnd liked her accordingly They walked on for some minutes In perfect silence; then Pauline turned to him suddenly. "Have you boon long in the army, Captain Langton?" Flattered by a question that seemed to evince somo personal Interest, ho hastened to reply; "Moro than eight yonrs. I joined when X was twenty." "Have you scon any service?" she asked. "No," he ropllod. "My regiment hud been for ninny yours In active service Just boforo I Joined, so that we havo been at home since then." "In Inglorious ease," sho said, "Wo are ready for work," ho returned, "when work comes." "How do you employ your time?" she ask •d; and again ho was flattered by the Interest that the Question showed. Ills face flush- nero was u grand opportunity of snowing tills haughty girl, this "proudest Darroll ot them all," that he was eagerly sought after In society such as sho had nut yot seen. "You have no conception of the Iramenso number ot engagements that occupy our time," ho replied; "I am fond of horees -^I take an Interest In all races." It he had added that ho was one of the greatest gamblers ou tho turf, ho would have spoken truthfully. "Horse racing, 1 ' said Miss Darrell— "that Is the favorlto occupation of all English gentlemen, Is It not?" "I should Imagine so. Then 1 am considered—you must pardon my boasting— one of the best billiard players In London," "That Is not much of a boast," slie remarked, with such quiet contempt' that the captain could only look at her In sheer wonder. - "There are balls, operas, parties, suppers —I cannot tell what; and. the ladles engross a great deal of our time. We soldiers never forget our devotion and chivalry to the fair sex, Miss Darrell." ' y "The fair sex should be grateful that they share your attention with horses and billiards," she returned, "But what else do you do, Captain Langton? I was not thluklng of •ueh trifles as those," • •Trifles I" be repeated, "I do not eall horse racing a trifle, I was within an Inoh ot winning the Derby-4 mean to say ahorse (To be conttnutd) -r- * JLOVMXpE MI-MUX.

Lambs will soon learn to scoop out a pumpkin if splitund laid in a trough, and tho seedi are said lo be efficnckui ugainiit stomach and intestinal worms. Inodorous Milk. Perfectly pure and inodorous milk cannot be hau unless the skin of the cow ii kept clean. As with human beings, there aro certain secretions that must be thrown off, Srst through tho skin, if it in kept its normul condition, but i. not, then through the milk glands.

No money is better laid out in building a cattle or liorse barn than t'uut put into window glusa and plenty of it, to give the animals light and sunshine, in their pleasant homes. If in n very cold clime and the farmer is afraid the coKl will como through, put tho window double; but by no means make a dark barn. Absence of light or sunlight for cows, is no better than for corn. Horse Breeding. The training nnd developing of horses has passed from the hands of the few into those of the many; and nowhero is more energy and brain power being expended than in the attempted solution of the question of perfection in horse breeding. Hardly a vestige of old methods or fixtures remain and gradually, as tbe under lying principles are studied, and industry has bsen taken up by systematic business men, who are lifting it to a better level. Advice of An Old Shepherd. Two hours a day vpant in standing the ram for a month will save more than two hours a day next spring in fuBsing with weak lambs. Besides that, a rain properly regulated, will ifot, without injury to himself, fifty lambs where tho ram turned into tho flock ought not to bo allowed to get over thirty. Still further, the fifty lambs will be worth fully twice us much as the thirty, even if you succeed in raising nil tho thirty. Take tho word of an old shepherd for this. Fore Itreed Fowls. There aro no fowls that show to better advantage on tho farm than the Plymouth Rock, audthey have won a deservedly high place both as layers and for the table. Thoy are large, handsome and clean looking, nnd this fact alone is worth nil it will cost to procure a flock of them in place of tho common mix-id barnyard flock. Their cure and feeding will cost no more thuu tho others, and tbey are suro to give n better return. It is a little strange that a farmer will take tbe pains and go to large expenso iu order have good horses, cattle, sheep and hogB, and yet will be content with a flock of mongrel fowls when it is so easy to have good ones. The farmer Rhould not attempt to be a pDultry fancier, but it is only good farming to keep one pure breed for practical purposes. Protecting Apple Trees. There nre several ways of protecting the stemB of apple trees from the depredations of rabbit9. but perhaps tbe cheapest and most effectual is to wrap them with sheets of common tar paper such as are commonly used in lining tne walls of buildings, roofs, etc. This will last about two years, but _ it should be removed in spring, because if left on during the summer it might injure the bark of the trees. But plain building paper brown wrapping paper or tbin muslin will answer the purpose for the rabbits will not attempt to bite through these in order to get to the bark. Whatever material is used, it should be applied beforo snow falls or cold weather sets in. Exhibition of Live gtock. At the Southern Minnesota fair, held in September last, was shown a herd of Hol- Bteins that was right in line with what has ofleu been advocated for show cattle; that is, they were not pampered and mado over fat and smooth un purposo for exhibition, but were in good condition for farm stock, ehowipg that thoy were cored for just as every good farmer can and should care for nis stock all the time. This is tbe only condition in which furm animals should ever be admitted as competitors for prizes at our fairs. It is por- naps needless to say thut these were shown as dairy stock, Ono heifer in tbe herd gave 40 pounds of milk per day "when 20 months old, und one cow had a record of 78 pounds of milk per day, while another baa a record of Yl% pounds of butter in four days, This shows the fact that the omission of "frills" did not interfere with their being good cattle. The purpose of our exhibitions of live stock should be only to show the same in good practical working condition.—Exchange. Llght-Hcaded, A farmer went with his son into a wheat field to see if it was ready for harvest, "See, father," said tho boy, how straight these stems hold up their head* I Those that bang their nends down lam sure they cannot be (rood for muob " Replying, the father said; " The stalk that stood so straight is lijiht-hoaded, and almost good for nothing, while the one that hung its head so modestly is full ot the most beautiful grain."

IjiDlAKAroi.iB, DPC. 1., 1 a. m.—The crunty jail in the very center of the city, was surrounded by a mob of three hundred infuriated people shortly before midnight thirsting for the life-blood of Charles Biriow, a ravisher confined witbin its walls. The man is an all sronnd criminal, and thii latent crime was an outrageous assault on a little girl named Blanche Staton, seven years of age. Tho jail is ^ flimsy old structure, easily entered, but the mob got no further than the strong doors in the office. At one time they were ap~>n the point, of giving to tho blowt of sledge hammers, but the sheriff and a posse of odi -ere cleared tbe room by a fca-il (ffurt. Once dispersed the back lione of the gang weakened. The ringleaders held another meeting within two rfjuares of the jail, a few uiinulca later. A pUn is on foot to break into a blacksmith »bop nr.d secure more tools. An attack ii likely to be made later. A force of aiveral hundred maioni with a lot of pork packers are organizing in the southern part of the city and will bo at the j*il in two hours. f .nter. At'2:10 a.m. the mob has. disperse 1 J and a large forc-j of police is at the jail. THE LOVELL SAFETY. fearS FREE1 A Now IJIcycle Which the Public Likes.

CUICAOO, Nov. 30-—The wind up of the November corn deal woul 1 seem to prove the assertion that the Chicago end win nothing but a Ride show to the big corner in New York. Some favor tho belief that Cudahoy's heavy shipments to covrr New York contracts caused tho pinch here. It is evident from the advanco in the price in Now York to SI. 10 against 75 cents in Chicnito that somo persons in the former city are having tho 6crew turned on tbem rather meroilessily. It was very quiet, but very strong, thn corner being shrewdly manipulated. It U not improbable that the courts will be called upon to adjudicate the diffaroncfs of some parties to the deal, as it is rumored that novernl operators on the wrong side have defaulted on contracts.

If breakfast is set for 8:30, at tbat mo- 'ment the doors nre thrown open and the guest who arrives at 8:31 finds the host and hostess seated aud the meal in progress. They mako a feature of being uniformly punctual at every engagement, cither of a business or social nature. This follows the old law which read "Punctuality is tho virtue of kings." If people would follow some such rule with regard to their health theyi would find themselves greatly bene­ fitted. When attacked by a cold do not delay but at once take HEM'S GERMAN COUGH AND KIDNEY CUKE and bo relieved at once.
