All night she had been dreaming of him and her children, somehow they were so entangled in her mind now; anil waking in the silent watches, a clearer perception of his character, and the weight of the temptation beuoath which he had fallen, was revealed to her, and she had been eager for tho morrow, though when it came, sho had not courage to hold out her baud, and force herself within the keuof that slight glance in which ho had included hor iu his morirng greetings. And afterward ho had disappeared with the Duke, wh'le th ) Diicluss had carried Mr. KyM off to h"r hot-houses; so that miidciv>. having written a letter to her sweethearts, found herself alone, aud wandered out on an expedition that ended in the forsaken diiry. lint presently she grew doaf to the splashing uois .i in the s -use of doser- tiou that tilled hor heart, and to some one who passed the door, the youn shape iu -Molly's imroii that l'enne! agamst the churn.

".Mr. Kvre will say nothing," iho said, balancing" herself on her pattens with suddenly recovered dignity, "he is with the Duchess. Did it ever strike you." she added, as the impulses of her youth toward Frank recurred, "that Mr. Eyre knew anything about jliitiwjf'' Frank, considering Madcap, thought that she must have had some knowledge, of t'le art to keep Mr. Eyre for six years tied to herapron-string, but said, "She is bis hostess—he cannot be riule to her." "A pretty pair," said a low but nudl- ble voice iu the doorwav behind them. At the sound of it Madcap's mood changed; without turning, she said "Would you like som > curds and wiiey, FanukV" and gravely lllled the wooden sp'ioti and held it nut to him. "Quito nn idyl!" said tho Duchess entering just as Frank, fed by Mudeap swallowed a liberal mouthful, but could Tint even bo made to look ridiculous by the absuidi;y of the situation.

"Frank is looking after me," said Madcap, waving her empty spoon airily; "go and look after the Duchess.

CIIAll'KIt VI. To act ii so easy, lo Uilak Is so htwd. When Mr. Kyre had told his wife tluit he must, propitiate the Duchess lor Frank's sake, and Madcap bad shrunk from this tirst glimpse, of tin uiiserupuloiHu.'ss of his character, ho had not taken into nc.tount tin danger of playing at pitcli-and-toB.s with a human heart, and before Ions found himself committed lo very different issues to tlvosvi tie bail intended. A child may klndlo a great lire, but lil'ty grown men cannot stay it;mid before Mr. Kyro had been ut tho White Lodge three days he knew Chat even for Frank's sake ho ought not to have gone there. The smalluoss of the party, tho isolation of a groat house at a time of year when all associates of tho inastor aud mistress in tho county wore absent, while unprivileged visitors found thorn- selves rigidly excluded, conspired to throw the young couple and the older ono so constantly to jochor that gradually Madcap's shyness with Frank ceased, and she could talk to him almost as naturally as in the tl lys when they were boy and girl together, lint to Frank, who could not bo expected to know Mr. Kyre's character as well as Mr. Kyre knew it himself, thesltuatiou was dangerous an 1 full of anxiety. He had ce.isod to count Madcap's husband a strong man, regarding his attitude to Hester ns alike bigoted and indefensible, and dreading some fresh weakness by which his wife's happiness might be endangered; though she, fed in secret by a more passionate devotion than ever, would not stoop to be jealous of the Duchess, and was never sad savo when she thou ,'ht of her children. But when she gathered that there was not a trait of beauty and sweetness about Dody that Frank bad not observod, he nnd she were so drawn together that thenceforward thore was no lack of discourse between thorn. And on the fourth day, when Frank was riding to L^ivel (moaning to return the same dnyl. Madcap, who had come out to see mm depart, sain, vory iruiy. that she would have liked to go with him on a pillion, so that all the way be seemed to feel her two little hands clasped bolow his heart, and hor bright head leaning In safety against his shoulder. She knew that the business on which he had excused himself v> the Duchess was to visit a certain nursery, aud deliver and receive important messages; and it was to receive these latter that she was very early dressed for dinner, and watching from the billiard-room window for his return, ready to rutt out the moment she heard his horse's stops. But it happened that his arrival was simultaneous with that of a new guest —a gossip of the highest quality—who saw the greeting between the two young people, and, supposing ihimi husband and wife, thought sucu warmth vastly ill-bred. She hud better hopes of them later, especially when she discovered the young man to lie that identical "nettle for nice noses" whose wrong' doings just now furnished the last new dish of Boandal for the county. She thought he must be either a fool of extraordinary simplicity, or a man of brilliant courage, to select thevilfeof an Kyro as his next ftvnoy; and at dinner became so fasoluutad in tier stuiy of the pair, that llio attitude of matters between Mr. Eyre and ,tlte Duclmaa for the time absolutely escaped her atten tion. • ".My dear Duclioss," she said, |n tha drawimr-room later.

Sho nodded toward Mr. Kyro as she spoke, who looked singularly old and haggard iu contrast with the two beau tif ill young people; and as if her thou :ht had reached liim. Mr. Kyre su Idenly looked at himself in a mirror opposite, then at the two—and a curious idea took possession of his mind. THE FARM AND HOME FARM NOTES. Money I" KKK".

That evening was tha last in which Mr. Kyre and tho Duchess, bis wife an J Frank, were virtually alouo; for within three days tho house was llllod with those persons that Mr. Eyre had prompted tho Dutchess to invite, 11 ivored by a sprinkling of brighter wits from town- these latter expressly born(as the conn ty magnates supposed) to teach solid men the inestimable value of their own slow understandings. There was scarcely a man thoro who had not known and loved Frank's father, ami gradually be mado bis way with each; for tho wives' judgments were id- ways in his favor, and on all sides tin verdict that he had bean move unfortunate than sinning was returned. And indeed, to tho wotinu, Frank was the central llgura of th i house, as Madcap, unconsciously to hersilf, was to the men, producing an unexp'cted elfoct on their minds, and almost inclining them to tho belief that as hum in Deiugs aro uivioeu into tnroo classes — men, women, and Ilerveys—so there might bo n fourth class, ot which Madcap was a representative. Sho bad no taste for flirtation— perhaps she was a total abstainer from birth, having loved but once, and once only, and so escaped any dregs of the poison that might bo lingering in her system; and when certain county IV bices, presuming on Mr. Kvre's units- guisod llirtation with tho, offered their thinly veiled admiration, something that was neither woman nor child Hashed out of her eyes and checked thorn. For men are but what women make them, as in thoir turn thoy imprint their features, whether base or uoblo, on what thoy deal with, and tho more recognition of n puro wo'nan will shed an influence in over-widening circlos upon tho souls of men who have painfully taught themselves that no such creatures exists. Hut the wives, who quickly fathomed Frank's attitude toward her, said that it was easy for a woman secretly so adored, to decline ordinary llirtations; thore was a general conviction too that Air. Eyre was amusing the Duchess rather than himself, being too finished a mun of the world to display in public his profound alfec- tion or his wife. And meanwhile -Madcap tired of it all, and longed for a sight of Iter children, of whom sho had not reoolved so much as a message for two whole days. Frank's position was now established, and why would not Mr. Eyro take her away?

During later years an obscure disease 1ms prevailed to such an extent among tho turkeys of Ithodo Island as not ouly to cause serious loss to own ere, but, according to tho annual ro port of tho station of that atate, to threaten tho slow, but not the less ccr tain, extermination of this source of Income. Tho disease appears about the head of tho turkey ns a small spot of discoloration; this spreads rapidly to adjacent parts, and in a few day the bird dies. The general belief among owners Is that tho disease infectious; but whether this Is true Is a question that requires more evidence for its fjusworlng. struwheri-y l'luiiU.

A common and serious mistake 1 B that of buying too many varieties. Ono of Bummer, two of autumn and three of winter sorts are enough for either tho commercial orchard or for homo use. This will etiablo you to have a succession nnd give your heaviest crop of winter apples, which' may bo handled at more leisure than those of summer and autumn, For commeiclal use select (hose whioh you know to be of good quality, handsome appearance and good, keepers, and whlqh have proven themselves adapted to your locality, An APP\Q tree is so long a time in coming to maturity that you cannot afford to experiment with"much untried sorts, 'Choose,' too,' a productive variety; some excellent apples are such shy bearers that tUolr cultivation, is rarely prottt- able, Having made a choice of varieties, tite next thing is to seo that you got a good stock.

Homo Journal: A curious clock, destined for the world's fair nt Chicago, has been made by a clockimker at Warsaw, named Goldfnden, who has worked at It six years. The clock rep- •ononis a railway station, with wait, big rooms for the traveler, telegraph and ticket ofllccs, a very pretty, weil lighted plntfoim, and a (lower garden in the centre of which Is a sparkling fountain of clear water. Past the railway station inn the lines. There are ilso slgnnl-boxc-s, lights, and reservoirs—In fact, everything that belongs to a railway station, to the smallest htall. In the cupola of the central tower is a clock which shows the time of the place; two clocks In the side cupolas show the time at New York and Pekln; aud on the two outermost towers urd" a calender and a barometer. Every quarter of an hour the tatlon begins to show signs of life. First of all the telegraph official begins to work. He despatches a telegram stating that the lino Is clear. The door.optus, nnd on the platform appear ..tho station master and his assistants the clerk Is seen at the window of the ticket otlice; and tho pointsmen come out of their boxes nnd close the barriers, A long line of people form at the ticket otlice to buy tickets; porters carry luggage; the bell is rung, nnd then out of tho tunnel comes a train, rushing into the station and. after the engine has given a shrill whistle, stops. A workman goes from carriage to carriage and tests the axles with a hammer. Another pumps water Into tho boiler of the engine. After the third signal with the bell, the engine whistles, and tho train disappears Into the opposite runnel; the stationmaster and bis assistant leave the platform, and the doors of tho waiting- room close behind them; the points­ men return Into their boxes nnd perfect wtlUnvKS prevails till, in a quarter of au hour, the whole Is repeated. _ust Flower" " I am. happy to state to you and to suffering Immunity, that my wife has used your wonderful remedy, August Tlowcr, for sick headache autl palpitation of the heart, with satisfactory resul ts. For several years she has been a great sufferer, has been under the treatment of eminent physicians iu this city and Boston, and found little relief. She was induced to try August Flower, which gave immedaite telicf. We cannot say to much for it." L. C. Frost, Springfield, Mass. O AT V'P •yPTjEASAHT Lawrence Harpers Maga- zlue for September: Although there is no mention of dcathmasks In tho works of Homer, or In any of the later classics, recent explorers havo satis- fled themselves that In tho early burials of all nations It was the custom to cover tho heuds uud bodies of the dead with sheets of gold so pllablo that they took tho Impress of tho form; and not Infrequently, when in the course of centuries the embalmed flesh had shrivelled or fallen nway, tho gold retained the exact cast of the features. Sehlloiu'.iuu found a number of bodies "covered with huge masks of gold- plato in repousse-work," several of which havo been reproduced by means of engraving In his Mycenae; and ho asserts that* there can be no doubt whatever that each ono of these represents the likeness of the deceased person whose face It covered. When Hamlet said that Alexander died, Alexander was burled, Alexander roturneth to dust, he overlooked the fact that Alexander's dust, instead of being converted Into loam to slop n beer-barrel, was preserved from corruption by the process of embalming and from external Injury by being cased lu the most precious of metals, Pottlgrew, in his History of Egyptian Mummies, says of tho death-mask of Alexander that "It was a sort of chase- work, and of such a nature that It could bo applied so closely to the skin as to preserve not only the form of tho body, but also to give the expression of the features to tho countenance." lie does uot quote his authority for this statement, but It is unquestionably derived from the account of the denth nnd burial of Alexander written by Dlodorus Sleulus, who said; "And first a collln of beaten gold was provided, so wrought by tho hammer ns to answer to tho proportions of the body; It was hnli lllled with aromatic spices, which served ns well to delight tho sense as to prevent tho body from putrefaction." Then follows it description of tho funeral oharlot, aud of the long line of march from Babylon to Alexandria, where Agustus Caesar saw the tomb three hundred years later; but thoro is no reference to n mask of Aloxandor's face in gold. Tho valiio of a plaster cast us a portrait of (lie dead or living face cannot for it moment be, questioned. It must of necessity be absolutely true to nature..

Miss IOtto Douglas in Scribner: The j parent whose sole answer to criticism or remonstranco Is, "I have a right to do what I like with my own child!" is the only impossible parent. Ills moral integument Is too thick to be pierced with any shaft, however keen. To him we can only say, as Jacques did to Orlando, "God bo with you; let's meet as little as we can." But most of us dare not take tills ground. We may not ""philosophize or formulate, wo may not live up to our theories, but we feel in greater or less degree the responsibility of calling a human being hither, and the necessity of guarding and guiding, In one way or another, that which owes Its being to us. Wo should all agree If put to the vote thnt a child has a right to bo well bora. Thnt was a trenchant speech of Henry Ward bcecher on tho subject of lelng born again; thnt If ho could bo born right the first time he'd take his chances ou the second. "Hereditary rank," snys Washington Irving, "may be a snare and a delusion, but hereditary virtue is a patent of Innate nobility which far outshines tho blazonry of heraldry." fiver the unborn our power is almost that of God, nnd onr responsibility, like Ills toward us; as wo acquit ourselves toward them, so let Him deal with us.
