You do not think that I would paint a picture, even If I could?" "I should think you clever ir you did that," •ho returned; "at present I cannot s.e that you do anytliliiK requiring mind or Intellect." "Miss Dnircll," he wild, looking at her, "you aro a radical, 1 believe." "A radical?'' she repeated, slowly. "1 inn not quite Hiiro, Cuptiiiii Lniigtoii, thatl know what that means." "You believe In nriHtoenicy of Intellect, and all that kind of nonsense," he continued. "Why should a mini who paints a picture be any belter than the man who understands tho KODII points nf a horse?" "Why, Indeed'/" hho asked, satirically. "Wo will not nrKuo tho question, for we should not acrec." "I had her there," thought tho captain. "Sho could not answer tun. Somo of these women rcqulro n high hand to keep them In order." "I do not sec Miss IIii»tlii|{9," she said at last, "and It Is quite useless going to tin: aviary without her. I do not remember th» naino of a single bird; and I am sure you will not care for them." "Hut," lio returned, hesitatingly, "Sir O* waid seemed to wish It." "There Is tlio llrst dinner-bell," sho said, with an air of great relief; "thero will only bo Just tlnio to relurn. As you seem solicitous about Sir Oswald's wishes we had better go In, for he dearly loves punctuality." "1 believe." thought the captain, ''that sho Is anxious to get away from me. I must say thatl am not accustomed to this kind of thing." Tho aspect of the dining-room, with Its display of line old plate, the brilliantly arranged tables, the mingled odor of rare wines and lloweis, restored linn to good humor. "It would bo worth somo little trouble," he thought, "to win all this." He took Paulino In to dinner. Tho grand, pale, passionate beauty ol the girl had never shown to irrcatcr advantage than It did this evening, as she sat with the purple and crimson fuchsias in her hair ami the broken lily in her licit. Sir Oswald did not notice tliu latter until dinner was half over. Then ho said "Why, Pauline, with gardens and hothouses full of flowers, have you chosen a broken one?" "To me It Is exquisite." she replied; The captain's face darkened for a moment but he would not take offence. Tlie elegantly appointed table, the svductlve dinner, tho rare wliies, all made an impression on him. lie said to himself that there was a good thing offered to him, and that u girl's liauglr) temper should not stand in his way. lie made himself most agreeable, he was all animation, vivacity, and high spirits with Sir Oswald. He was deferential and attentive to Miss Hastings, and iiis manner to Pauline left no doubt in the minds of the lookers on that lie was completely finclnatcd by her. She was too proudly helllfeieut, h.o haughtily careless, even to resent It. Sir Oswald Oariell was too true a gentleman to oiler his niece Ui any one; but bo had given the cap tain to understand that, If he could woo her uiel win her, there would bo no objection raised on his part For once In his lite Captain I.angton had spoken quite Inillifully. "1 have nothing." lie said; "my father left me hut a very iiioileraln fortune, and I havo lost the greater part of it. I have not been careful or prudent. Sir Oswald.' "Care mid prudence are not the virtues of youlh," Sir Oswald returned. "1 may say, honestly, 1 should be glad if your father's son eoiilil win my niece; as for fortune, she will lie richly dowered It I innkohcr my heiress. Only yesterday I heard that coal had been found on my Scotch estates, and, If that lie true, It will raise my lucouie many thousands per milium." ".May you long live to enjoy your wealth, Sir Oswald I" said I lie young mail, so heartily that tears slood In the old baronet's eyes. Hut there was ono thing tho gallant captain did not confess. He did not tell Sir Oswald 1) I i-i ol 1—what was really the truth— that lie was over head and ears In debt, and that this visit to Darrell Court was the last hopo left to him. CIIAI'TKH IX. PAtll.INi: Kill.I. INCOIIUIOIIII.E Sir Oswald lingered over his wine. It wus not every day that lie found a companion m entirely to his taste as • Captain I.angton The captain had a collection of anecdotes 0. the com'!, tho aristocracy, and the mess-room, that could not be surpassed, lie kept his own Interest well In vlow tho whole time, leaking some modest allusions to tho frequency with which his society wiio sought, and the number of ladies who were disposed to regard him favorably. All was narrated wllh tlie greatest skill, without I he loast boasting, ami Sir ( swald, as he listened with delight, owned lo himself that, all things considered, lie could not have clioson more wisely for his lilcr.e, A second hoitlu of fine old port was discussed, n11<I then .Sir Oswald said: "Ton will liko to go to the drawing -room; tho ladles will be thero. 1 always onjoy forty winks after dinner." Tho prospect of a tcli-u-tcte with Miss Dor- tell did not strike tho captain as holng a very rapturous ono. "She Is," lie said to himself, "a magnificently handsome girl, but almost too haughty to be bearable. I have never, In all my life, felt so small as 1 do wlion alio speaks to mo or looks at mo, and no man likes that sort of thing." But Dnrrell Court was a raagn If icon testate, the largo annual Income was a sum he had never even dreamed of, and all might ho his —Sir Oswald had said so; his, If ho could but win tho proud heart of the proudest girl It had ever been his fortune, to meet. Tlio stake was well worth going through something disagreeable for. "If she wore only like other women," he thought, "I Bliould know how to manage her) but she seems to live In tho clouds." The plunge had to ho made, so the captain summoned all his coimigo, and went to the drawing-room. The picture thoio must have struck tho least Imaginative of men. Miss Hastings, calm, elegant, lady-like, In her qulot evening dross of gray silk, was seated noar a small stand on which stood > large lamp, by the light of which she was reading. The part of tho room near her was brilliantly Illuminated. It was a spacious apartmeut -unuBiially so even for a large mansion. It contained four largo windows, two of whloh were cloeetl, the gorgeous hangings of white and gold shielding thero from view; the other end of the roo.u was In semi-darkness, the brilliant light from the lamp not reaching It—the windows were thrown wide open, and the soft, pale moonlight came In. The evening came In, too, bringing with jt the sweet breath of tho Ullea the perfume of tho rosos, tho fragrance of rich olovor, carnations, and purple hollo- tropes. Faint shadows lay on the flowers, the white silvery light was very peaceful and sweet; the dewdcops shone on the gross-It was tho fairest hour of nature's fair day. M Pauline had gone to tho open window. Something bad made her restless and unquiet; but, standing there, tho spell of that beautiful moonlight seene calmed her, and held her fast With one look' at that wonderful sky and Its myriad stars, ono at the soft moonlight and the white lilies, the fuyer of life died from her, and a holy culm, sweet fancies, bright thoughts, swopt over her like an angel's wing. Then she became consiolous of a stir In the perfumed air; something less. ajreenbie minified with the, fragrance of the lilies^- somo scent of wltlon she ola not Know the/ name, but whloh she disliked ever afterword, beeauw the oaptelp/uflod. H.

"I want to ask you something, Miss Dnrrell. Bo kind, be patient, and listen to me." "I am neither kind nor patient by nature," she returned; "what havo you to say'/" It was very difficult, he felt, to be sentimental with her. She hod turned to the window, and was looking out again at the flowers; one little white hand played Impatiently wllh a branch of guelder roses that came peeping In. "lam jealous of those flowers," said the captain; "will yon look at me instead of them?" She raised her beautiful eyes, and looked at him so calmly, with so much conscious superiority In her manner, that tho captain felt "smaller" than ever. "You aro talking nonsense tome," she said, loftily; "and as I do not liko nonsense, will you tell me what you have to say'/" Thevolco was calm and cold, the tones measured and slightly contemptuous; It was very difficult under such circumstances to lie an eloquent wooer, but tho recollection of Darrcll Court and Its Ir.rge rent-roll cuino to him and restored his fast expiring courage "1 want to ask a favor of yon," ho said; and tlio pleading expression that ho managed to throw Into his faco was really creditable to htm. "1 want to ask you It you will be a little kinder to me. I admire yon so much that 1 should bo the happiest man In all tho world If you would but give me ever so little of your friendship." She seemed to consider his words— to ponder them; and from her silence lie took hope. "I am quite unworthy, 1 know; but, If you knew how all my llfo long I havodcslrcd the friendship of a good and noble woman, you would bo klnrtei to me—you would Indeed 1" "Do you think, then, that I am good and noble?" she asked. "I am sure of It; your fac<! " "I wish," sho Interrupted, "that Sir Oswald were of your opinion. You have lived In what people call 'the world' all your life, Captain Langlon, I suppose?" "Yes," ho replied wondering what would follow. "You have been In society all that time yet I am tho llrst 'good and noble woman' you hove met I You uro hardly complimentary to tho sex, after all." The captain was slightly taken aback. "I did not say those exact words, Miss Dar­ rcll." "But you Implied them. Tell me whyyou wish for my friendship more than any other. Miss Hastings Is ten thousand times more estimable than I am—whvnot moke her your friend'."' "I ndmlro you— I like you. 1 could say more, but I dure not. You are hard upon tne.^IlssDarroll." "I have no wish to be hard," sho returned. "Who am I that I should bo hard upon any one? But, you see, I am unfortunately what people call very plain-spoken—very truthful." "So much the better," said Captain I.ang­ ton. "Is It? Sir Oswald says not If ho does not make mo his heiress, it will bo because I have Biich an abrupt manner of speaking; he often tells mo so." "Truth In a beautiful woman," began the captain, sentimentally; but Miss Darrcll again Interrupted him—she had little patience with his platitudes. "You say you wish for my friendship bo- causo you liko mo. Now, here Is the difficulty— I cannot give It to you, because I do not like you." "You ilo not liko mo?" crlod the captain, hardly able to believe tlio evidence of his own senses. "You cannot mean ttl You are the first person who over said such a tiling I" "Perhaps I am not tho first who over thought it; but then, as I tell you, \ am very apt to say what I think." "Will you tell mo why you do not like mo?" asked tho capttiln, quietly. Ho began to see that nothing could be gained In any other fashion. Her beautiful faco was raised quite cilmly to his, her dark eyes were as proudly serene as ever, sho was utterly unconscious that she .was saying anything extraordinary. "I will tell you with pleasure," Bho replied. "You soein to mo wanting In truth and earnestness; you think people nrotobo pleased by llattcry. You flutter Sir Oswald, yon flatter Miss Hastings, you flutter me. Being ngreeablo Is all very well, but an honest man does not need to flatter—does not think of It, in fact Then, you aro either heedless or cruel— I do not know which. Why should you kill that beautiful flower that Heaven mailo to enjoy the sunshine. Just fur ono idle moment's wanton sport?" Captain Langton's face grew perfectly white with anger. "Upon my word of honor, ho said, "I nov- er heard anything liko this!" Miss Darrcll turned carelessly away. "You see," she said, "friendship between us would be rather difficult. But I will not judge too hastily; I will wait a few days, and then decide." Sho had quitted tho room before Captain Langton had sulllcleiitly recovered from his dismay to answer. CHAPTER X. nOW W1M, IT KND? It was some minutes before Captain Langton collected himself suflleiently to cross the room and spoak to Miss Hastings. She looked up at iilm with a smile. "1 am afraid you havo not had a very pleasant time of It at that end of tho room, Captain I .angton," sho said; "I was Just on tlio point of Interfering." "Your pupil is a most extraordinary young lady,.MIss Hastings," lie returned; "I have nover met with any ono moro so," Miss Hastings laughed; thero was an expression of great amusement on her face. "She Is magnificently handsome," he continued; "but her manners are simply startling." "She has very grand qualities," said Miss Hastings; "sho has a noble disposition and a generous heart, hut the want of early train- big, the mixing entirely with one class of society, has made her very strange." "Strange 1" cried tho captain. "I have never met with any one so blunt, so outspoken, so abrupt, In all my life. She has no notion of repose or polish. I havo never been so surprised. I hear Sir Oswald coming, and really, Miss Hastings, I feel that I cannot see him; I am not equal to It—that extraordinary girl has quite unsettled me. You might mention that I have gone out In tho grounds to smoke my cigar; I cannot talk to any one." Miss Hastings'laughed as he passed-out through the open French window Into the grounds. Sir Oswald came In, smiling and contented; he talked for a few minutes with Miss Hastings, and heard that the captain was smoking his cigar. Me expressed to Miss Hastings bis very favorable opinion of the young man, and then bade her goodnight. "How will It end?-' said tho governess to herself. "She will never marry him, 1 am sure. Thoso proud, clear, dark eyos of hors look through all his little airs anil graces; Iter grand soul seems to understand all the narrowness and selfishness of his. She will never marry him. Oh, If she would but be civilised I (Sir Oswald Is quite capable of leaving all he has to the captain, and Uien what.wonld become of Pauline?" By this time tlie goutie, gracetut governess had become warmly attached to the, beautiful, wayward, willful girl who persisted so obstinately lit refusing what sheohose to eall "polish." . , ' J "How will It endf • said the governess, «| would give all 1 have to see Paulino mistress of Dorrell Court; but I fear the future." < Borne of the scenes that took place between Mlba Darroll ond the captain were very amusing, - She had the utmost contempt for bis somewhat dandified airs, his graces, and affections, • VI lijkea, grand, rugged, noble man, with the head of a hero, and the brow of a poet, the heart of a lion, and the smile of a child,' 1 alio stUd to him one day; "I cannot eiuuue a »; • t lt >opo ;vP »%ftlf ftnd suchcVraaiiviMisa DarreH ^Mie returned, quietly.

"Not In the least," he replied. "Is your sight defective?" she continued. "No, not In the least degree." "Then why do you use that eye -glass. Captain Langton?" "I— oh—why .because everybody use* one," he replied. "I thought It was only women who did that kind of thing—followed a fashion for fashion 's sake," sho said with some little contempt The next morning the captain descended without his eyo-glnss, and Miss Hastings smiled as sho noticed It, Another of his affectations was a pretended inability to pronounce his "t 'a" and 'Vs." "Can you really not speak plainly?" she said to him ono day. "Mostdecidedly lean," he replied, wondering what was coming next. "Then, why do you call 'rove' 'wnve' In that absurd fashion?' The captain's face flushed. "It Is a habit I have fallen Into, I suppose," he replied. "I must break myself of It," "It is about the most effeminate habit a man can fall Into," said Sliss Uarrcll. "I think that, if 1 were n soldier, 1 should delight In clear, plain speaking. I cannot understand why English gentlemen seem to think It fashionable, to mutilate their mother tongue." Thero was no chancoof their ever agreeing—they never did even for one single hour. "What are you thinking about, Pauline?" asked Miss Hastings ono day. Her young pupil had fallen into a reverie over "The History of the Peninsular War." "lam thinking," sho replied, "that, although France boasts so much of her military glory England has a superior army; her soldiers aro very brave; her officers tho truest gentlemen." "I am glad to hear that you think so. I havo often wondered If you would take our guest as a sample." Her beautiful lips curled with unutterable contempt. "Certainly not. I often contrast him with a Captain Lalossc, who used to visit us In the Kuo d'Oruic, a grand man with a brown, rugged face, and great brown hands. Captain Langton Is a coxcomb—neither moro nor less, Miss Hastings." "But he Is imlislied, refined, elegant in his manner and address, which, perhaps, your friend with tho brown, rugged face wus not" "Wc shall not agree, Miss Hastings, we shall not agree. I do not like Captain Langton." Tho governess, remembering all that Sir Oswald wished, tried in vain to represent their visitor in a more favorable light. Miss Uarrell simply looked haughty and unconvinced. "1 am years younger than you," she said, at last, "and have seen nothing of what you call 'llfo'; but tlio Instinct of my own heart tells me that ho Is falsa In heart, In mind. In soul; he has a false, flattering tongue, false lips, false principles--wo will not speak of him." Miss Hastings looked at her saiily. "Do you not think that in time, perhaps, you may liko him better?" "Xo," was the blunt reply. "I do not I told him that I did not liko him, but that I would take some time to consider whether ho was to be a friend of mine or not; and the conclusion I havo arrived at Is, that I could not endure his friendship." "When did you tell linn that yon did not like hlra?" asked Miss Hastings, gravoly. "I think It was the first night ho came," she replied. Miss Hastings looked relieved. "Old ho say anything else to you, Pauline?" sho asked, gently. "No; what should ho say? Ho seemed very much surprised, I suppose, as he says most pcoplu like him. But I do not, and never shall." One thing was certain, the captain was falling most passionately In love with Miss Darrcll. Her grand beauty, her pride, her originality, all seemed to have an iireslstl- blo charr,, for h!r... onAPTKU XI. EI.INOIt ItOf.'IIKFOItn. It was a morning in August, when a gray mist hung over the earth, a mist that resulted Horn the Intense heat, and through which trees, flowers, and fountains loomed faintly like shadows. Tho sun showed his bright face at intervals, but, though he withheld Ills gracious presence the heat and warmth were great; the air was laden with perfume, and the birds wero all singing as though they knew that tho sun would soon reappear. One glance at her pupil's face showed Miss Hustings there was not much to be done in the way of study. Paulino wanted to watch the inlst rlso from the hills and trees. She wanted to see the sunbeams grow blight and golden. "Let us read under tlio lima trees. Miss Hastings," sho said, and Captain Langton smiled approval. For tho time was eomo when ho followed her liko her shadow; when he could not e (1st out of her presence; when ills passionate lovo mastered hlui, und brought him, a very slavo, to her feet; when the hopo of winning her wus dearer to him than life itsolf; when ho would have sacrificed even Dune 11 Court for tho hopo of culling iter his wife. If sho knew of his passion, sho mado no sign; she nover relaxed from her haughty, carolcss Indifferenco; she nover tried li. tlio least to make herself ugrceablo to him. Sir Oswald watched her with keen eyes, and .Miss Hastings troubled lest misfortune should come upon the girl sho was learning to lovo so dearly. Sho saw und understood that the baronet was slowly but surely making up his mind; If Pauline married tlio captain, lie would make her his heiress; If not, she would nover Inherit Darrcll Court On this August morning tlioy formed a pretty group under tho shadowy, graceful limes, Miss Hustings hold In her hands somo of tho fluo fancy work which delights ladles; tlio captain reclined on u tlgor-skln rag on the grass, looking very handsome, for, whatever might be his faults of mind, he was one of tho handsomest men In England. Pauline, as usual, was beautiful, graceful, and piquant, wearing u plain morning dress of some gray material—a dress which on any one else would have looked plain, but which she had made plcturesquo und artistic by a dash of scarlet—and a pomegranate blossom In her hair. Her lovely faco looked more than usually noble under tho Influence of toe words sne was reading. "Tennyson again I" said the captain, aa she opened the book. "It is to be regretted that the poet cannot see you, Miss Dnrrell, and know how highly you appreciate his works." She never smiled nor blushed at bis compliments, aa she had seen other girls do. She had a fashion of fixing her bright eyes on him, and after one glance he generally was overcome with confusion before his compliment was ended. "I should not Imagine that anything I could tar would flatter a poet," she roplled thoughtfully. "Indeed he la, I should say, aa far abov* blame as praise." Then, without noticing him further, the went on reading. Captain Langton's eyes never left her face; Its -pale, grand beauty glowed and changed; the dark eyes grew radiant, the beautiful lips quivered with •motion. He thought to himself that a man salfht lay down hla life and every hope la It to win such love aa hers. Suddenly eh* heard the sound of TOloea, and looking up saw Sir Oswald escorting two FARM AND HOME. THRKE ISLANDS. WtLI.UK n. COOK.

'Tls an Island of plessure, an Island o| tears, Suns of peace and the raindrops of sorrow; Though the stormy clouds lower, be silent our rests, There's a rainbow of hope for to-morrow. There are mountains of joy In this Island of Life; There are valleys of silver between; We strive for the summits, but sink in our strife, And sink to the darksome ravine. The white clouds of. sumnierfsnd float o'er this isle; It trembles with thnnder's wild Jar; Its mornings msv dawn with a glorious smile; Eve follows with shadow and star.

As a remilt of this process the glass has a rough surfuce, and is no longer transparent. It in now transferred to the "fine tool." This in mado of braes and has its surface as true as nosnble. It is compared from time to time with a ntanduru curve, in order to insure accuracy. In this second grinding the abrading material is rouge (carefully calcined sulphate of iron.) Finally, the lenH is polished by being prefsed against n piece of cloth powdered with rouge and fastened to tbe rotating tool. The glass is now loosened from its block, turned over and the reverse side of tbe lens ground. When this has been accomplished, thelenn must bo cut down to the proper shape for mounting in the spcctacleframe. V. is placed on a leather cushion and held firmly in position by n rubber-tipped arm, while acliamund glasx- cutter passing around an oval guide traces a similar oval on the glass below. The superfluous gloss outside of the oval is removed by steel pincers, tbe rough edgei are ground smooth on Scotch wheelB and the lens is roady for mounting.

Tie marble capital building at Hartford, Conn., Is 800 feet long, and the engineers declare that it is tlirco Inches longer In summer than In winter. FARM NOTES. Fertilizers for wheal should be kept near the surface. Worthless land is often made valuable by under-draining. Be sure that your grain-bin 1 , are free from insects before filling. The Shropshire sheep is one of the mutton breeds, and gives a good fleece besides. The next day it rain? get the grain bags out. Mend those that need it, and mark your name on all of them. A Connecticut man planted a peach stone four years ago and this fall gathered from the resulting tree two bushels of fruit described as "handsome." Sheep aro only hardy when they are not exposed to storms and dampness. Cold, dry weather will do the floe'e no harm, but they require Bhelter and dry floors, especially during northeast storms. Value of Leaves. TLo tons of leuves that can be had now with no cost but the raking and hauling, will be found u valuable adjunct to the keeping of stock in winter. They not on'y Berve to provide the best of bedding, but may be udded to the manure-heap with udvuntage. Apples.

A pound cf r-opperas, coaling tbreo cents, dissolved in two gallons of water, will .destroy many dixdaH'.-K dun lo filth. Mixed Diet for Host, Clover hay, cut fine and cooked or scalded, makeB an excellent moss for the hogs, especially if a small quantity of meul be sprinkled over it. The hogs should have bulky food as well us the horse and cow, and to feed it exclusively on concentrated food will not induce as food results as a mixed diet, A hog fed on a varied ration will fatten as readily as on corn alone and the meat will be of better quality, but corn should entet largely into tho ration. When the Cow Is Slot. The dairy man>hould be to some ox- tent a veterinarian, at least enough to be able to tell when his cow is sick and what is the matter with her. Many times milk is sold from a sick cow for days before the owner is aware that anything is the matter with her. Thus the germs of tuberculous and other deadly diseases become soattered through the community, and there is no knowing how much sickness and death have been caused by this ignoiance. Reason. Sometimes tbe facility with which we arrive at moral conclusions is a test of their correctness. It is as easy to give a sufficient reason for what we desire to do, as it is to give one againBt what we do not desire to do. But it is not so eoBy to reason against our inclinations. Those things which we have arrived at as wrong, or at least doubtful, by tv reasoning process, it is usually safest to avoid. But those things which we have arr ved at w right after suoh efforts at reasoning are—often to be avoided also.—S. 8. Times. Smile With Your Eyes. There iB one big "don't" which nine tenths of womankind might with ad, an tage hang over their drepsing-tables, and it is this: "Don't smile perpetually. Is there anything more wearisome than the person who ceaselessly expand-) and contracts the lips over the teeth, without mirth or meaning, for that is what the continual mile eventu ally becomes? Let any woman stand before tbe mirror and attempt to S roduce an animated smile of welcome, he will be surprised at the witless grimace that wili-reepond.
