I put them 4>ut of wight, and then I brought back |fth.e blue velvet and pearls. ,She cried jut at the sight of it, and waved it from her. "You must put it on," I.said. "I cannot," she replied. "I would rather wear a shroud." "You must," I said. "You must put it on. You must color your face und brighten your hair. You must ame down stairs arid show yourself pn the ball room. Romeniber that you |havo yourself to save." "I—I can not," she cried in de- j^spairing- tones. "You must," I repeated. "You jpnust do it to save yourself, even |yhould you die directly afterward." My strong- will beat down her veaker one. I dressed her. I tried ay best to make her look as she had lone before, but it was as though I iad tried to dress a dead woman. KjThen I fetched some brandy for her, fiind mode her drink it. |i A faint tinge of color, came to her Hps. She looked at ' me once with 1,-wild eyes. *•' "I hate yon!" she said; and the ords were like a hiss. "Never mind," I answered, "if you . only save yourself." I found her a large bouquet of fresh jflowers., and told her to hold it before .her face when she passed through the jball-room, so as to hide her colorless if ace. She did so; but when the time came for her to return to the ball- .ro'om she could v notwalk. I "You must absolutely go," I said. .. "It is the only means of saving your^elf. If ever the incidents of this night should be known, no one will believe one word if you are seen in -4he ball-room. You must go." " She went, leaning on my arm. I shall never forget the ordeal. She • olutched my arm. I felt how she [trembled. I feared, if anyone spoke |"to' her, that she would suddenly 3llapse and fall on the ground: She Irwould have done so, but, fortunately, no one came near us. CHAPTER XL ' We walked slowly through the ball- rroom twice, I led her, as though she wore blind 'and dumb, through the Conservatory and the picture-gallery; j[ was determined that every visitor should see her. If by any mischance Jt was rumored that she was seen in ihe park after 1 o'clock at night, a s'hijndrecl vbices would be raised in pQO.nj)rq4ict4on, for a hundred people iftnjj'inore saw her }n her own house. I' 'It was a ghostly walk, More than ijice I thought she would fall from my I'm dead, but at last I placed her ffftfely in her own room again,;and '"•""'• for her maid.

"1 thought^* he said, "that you liked Colonel Korth so much. Lady Latittier does. I believe he is the fa^ vored guest." "What time does he leave in the morning" I asked, for the sake of showing Some interest in him. "Quite early," he replied. "Ho has to be at the Royal horse guards by noon." "Ho will- come back, I hope." I knew he would not. I understood why he had returned to the house, and had gone to the smoking-room where most of the guests could see him. Then, when the Visitors were all gone, I went back to Lady Latimer's room. I found her very ill. I told the maid that I would sit with her and read her to sleep. "I do not like my lady's looks at all, Miss Lovel," said the maid. "I am afraid that she has overdone herself. I, should not wonder if she has a bad illness.*' I sat with her the night through. She did not speak to me. She hardly seemed to know "that I was present. She Wept and moaned through the night in such a heart-breaking fashion it made me ill to listen. She did not hear, poor child, what I heard — the quick galloping of ahorse in the early morning. When it ceased I knew that Colonel North had gone. She was worse in the morning; brain fever set in; the doctor was sent for hurriedly. The visitors disappeared. Lord Latimer was frightened to death. "Brain fever," he said. "Why, brain fever only cotnes to those who have great trouble, and she has none in the world, absolutely none." Tho doctor's opinion was that Lady Latimer had overtired herself with the Christmas festivities. • "She had Colonel North to help her," said Lord Latimer; "I don't see how she can have done too much." But there was no gainsaying the fact. She was ill for a long time, and I was her faithful, loving nurse; but the name of Colonel North was never mentioned between us from that night. It was New Year's eve when Lady Latimer fell ill, and the violets were in blooin before she was able to leave the house again. "I want to go away from here, Audrey," she said to me| one day. "I want to go out-of-doors, and I cannot here; I cannot endure the sight of this place, and the sound of the river makes mo ill." "I understood, after that scene in the park; it was no wonder that she could not endure it. I spoke to Lord Latimer, and he seemed pleased that she should have a change. We went to Brighton. I thought the life and brightness of that sunny watering-place would be good for her. , I might as well have brought a dead body to the seaside. Once, and once only, terrible energy came to her. I was sitting on the cliff overlooking the sea, and she came to me suddenly, holding an open newspaper in her hands. "I have been looking for you," she said. "I want you to read this; it is your fault." I took the paper from her hands and read that war had broken out at the cape, and among others who had exchanged to be sent out there was that well-known and highly esteemed officer, Colonel North. , "That is your fault," she said. "Do you see the honorable mention of him as a brave soldier' and a noble man?" "Yes, I do," she answered, "You may thank me for that," I said.. "I saved him as well as you. English officers are men of honor, and if Colonel North had stolen the wife of his friend, they would not have associated with him," Her face flushed and her head drooped. "I wish," said she, "that I could fall from the cliff here into the sea, " Decidedly, in those days, she was not the most pleasant companion in the world; but I knew the gnawing misery, "I wish," she said .to me one day, "that Lord Latimer would leave L^r- tpn's. .Cray, I shall never like tho place again." Captain Fleming came once or twice, but he did not remain long. He told me that he had never seen any one so changed as kady Latimer, "When I think of her leading the .cotillon on New Year's eve, in that wonderful dress of blue velvet and pearls, and then look at her as she is now, I cannot believe she is the same woman, "he said. It, required a great calamity to arouse her, and, surely enough, one came. It was the month of August, two years and a half after that terri- ple New Year's eve, and I was sitting out among the roses making some lace for her. } saw her coming toward me with a terrible look pn her face,. I was almest frightened, She were a long white dress; her hair was unfastened, her face white as death; her eyes had an expression I shall never forget, She held eut a newspaper to me. »<Lppk," she said, "and read, Jjeftven has punished me. " j Ipolced. In the list ef thpse killed at Isandulft was the name pf Celpnel gee it>" she said slewly," , I see it, Lady L,a,timeis" "It was you who sent hto to his death," 'ijjiette}' the 4eath pf a gop4' than theiile pf ft cewa.rd.,"I answered,.

'•I would go all tho way to fsrin- dnla," she said, "to kiss his face just once .before they la- him in his grave." She was like a w^man stricken with death. Captain Fleming came down in the same sunny month of August, and he talked for hours about one who had been the hero of the fight. He told a hundred anecdotes of Colonel North, of his courage, his bravery, his kindness; how he was beloved by his Mentis, worshipped by the so.ldiers;'how ho was always ready with kindly words ahd generous help. She listened with a white, set face; and spoke no word. "I do not believe." said Captain Fleming, "that he had a blot ill his life." But we two 'Women, who knew what a dark and terrible blot there had been, said nothing. Lady Latimer was like a woman turned into stone. Another great event happened in that month of August. Lord Latimer died quite suddenly. He had been unusually irritable, and complained of not being Well, but no one suspected that he was worse than usual.. His valet, going to wake him one morning, found him dead in his bed, and the doctor said he had been dead some hours. There was no need for any inquest; he had died from heart disease from which he had suffered many years. It was a terrible blow to Lady Latimer; not that she loved him but that it brought her sin and her sorrow so forcibly to -her mind. "How strange it seems that ho should have died first," she said to me ono day. "Oh, Audrey," Clod has punished my sin." ' Then Lionel Fleming became Lord Latimer, and master of Lorton's Cray. The old lord had loft his wife a large fortune. 1 'I shall spend it all in charity she said to me. "There is but one interest, one pleasure in life loft, and that is doing good to others." was perfectly true. If ever any woman tried to make up for a sin by charity and good deeds, Lady Latimer did. Tho new Lord Latimer bogged of us to remain at Lorton's Cray for some few months. He did not want to take pos- ession until the spring of the year, and he prayed us to remain there Lady Latimer consented, and we lived there in peace and seclusion until the Christmas snow was on the ground again and the New Year coming round. [TO BE CONTINUED.] LIVING IN A CHURCH. A United States Senator Occupies Ono RH a Itosldonco. An ex-senator of the United. States lives in a church in Washington, and seems to like it. The peculiar thing about it is that the church in question is still in a condition which would permit of the words of truth being uttered every Sunday from the sacred desk, and that the ex-senator is one of the wealthiest men in Washington, and could afford to dwell in the finest mansion in the -city, with all the refinements pf civilization. ' Everybody knows the picturesque and vine-clad little church on Massachusetts avenue, at the intersection of Eighteenth and P streets. Ex-Senator Van Wyck, his wife and young daughter have made it their home. Mrs. Van Wyck owns the property, it having been bought by her husband and presented to her as a little after- dinner favor the day they were leaving Washington for Nebraska, at the conclusion of the latter's senatorial career. It has been the scene of High Church Episcopal and Swedenborglan services, but lately has been idle. When Mr. and Mrs. Van Wyck came here to attend to repairs then in pror gross 'upon their own property, the former-suggested that they camp out in their empty church, Mr. Van Wyck has a horror of mounting steps, and thought it would be a great scheme to live on the ground floor. So they moved to the church and divided off the auditorium by imaginary lines into a parlor, bod rooms, dining room and picture gallery, The pictures they had stored away here in plenty, and a shopping expedition quickly pro^ vided the necessary furniture. The vestry was turned into a kitchen, and the shining pipes of the organ and the decoration of the chancel helped out the art gallery. Rugs, lamps, small tables, easy chairs and sofas dot the space all around, and papers and books are in profusion, With plenty of servants and every comfort possible, the household spends the days very enjoyably in its novel quarters, rjoty In Practice.

Soiling (Coirfenced from Farmers 1 Review Stenographic hcport 6t lovvti Dairy Convention, l Mr. John Goldsvrorthy of IJufnside (spoke on the question of selling butter by co-operation. The pith of his address was that co-operative selling los- Retted the cost of disposing of it. Dis- (Jussion took place as follows: Q.—-Have you gone far enough into the subject to develop a plan of selling by which it will be a permanent success, that is, as to selling butter? A.—I have not. I would say that the plan should be something like this: A company would be organized with 200 shares at a par value each of §50 per share. This would make a capital of $10,000. A part of this,say 20 per cent, should be paid up at once. A board of directors would have the management of the business. Of course we would have a secretary, treasurer and general manager. The latter officer should reside in Chicago and have the principal management of the business. Mr. Wilson—Does it not resolve itself into an ordinary commission business? Now, I think that the general experience of co-operative selling has not been a success. In other words, it has been found that co-operative companies do not co-operate. Whether they can be made to co-operate is another question. We have tried cooperation in a hundred different ways but have not yet arrived at a successful way of doing it. They have made a great success of co-operation in England, but -not in this country. Now, it would be a good plan to have a central place in Chicago where the butter of a hundred : creameries could be brought to it and given its' proper grade and placed on the market. Mr. Frost—This is a question that is worthy the consideration of both buyers and sellers of butter. It is a question of such magnitude that were we to follow it to its limits we would consume a week of time. It would have a tendency to bring up the quality of common dairy butter to creamery make. If the creameries would all make' extra butter this would be the best plan that we could adopt, and I believe that if we had such a central station the commission men would all be glad to go there, where they could get what they wanted. But my experience has been that our creamery butter is not all extra or even first, as to the bulk. For this reason I do not believe the plan would work very well. In the state of Dakota they started a co-operative selling association a short time ago and are already quarreling about it. I believe the commission men are working in the interests of • the creameries. To keep on good terms with their patrons they try to get as high prices for the butter as possible, for they know that if the farmer finds he is not getting as much as he might, he will send his goods to some other man. To I'rovent Contagion. The Feathered World of London'. England, says that when a contagious disease appears,' say canker, or diphtheritic roup, to give it its proper title whether it be among fowls or pigeons, the first thing to be done is to isolate immediately any bird or birds afflicted with it. Next we have to consider that many of the others may have contracted it and we must watch for symptoms and isolate them also promptly. Incase of doubt it is always best,to be on the the,safe side and remove any bird that appears to be ailing, however slightly, until it is made clear that there is notii- ing the matter. Another'important point is that a diseased bird may cause others to be diseased by drinking at the same fountain. The addition of a little acidified steel tincture to the drinking water is a means of making it antiseptic and at the same time acts as a useful tonic to .the birds. When once a contagious disease has been present in a fowl house or pigeonary it is folly to attempt further breeding until the place has been thoroughly disinfected. The birds should all be removed for a week or two to other quarters. To disinfect the place, first close it up and burn sulphur in it, allowing the fumes to remain in possession for several hours, (Best to do this at night, and then it can remain until the following morning.) Then scrape the walls, sweep out the floor, and have it thoroughly syringed with water containing carbolic acid, Afterwards whitewash the walls and resand the floor, and after a few days' interval the birds in • quarantine may be returned. AH exchange says that from many examinations made it is found that the gizzard of a perfectly healthy fowl contains at all times a generous quan* tHy of gravel or grit, when this artjr cle is freely supplied—oftentimes more grit than, food, Qn the contrary, when not in vigorous health, a small quantity of grit, sometimes not any, is to be found, while both crop a«d gizzard will he overloaded with a RWISS of stale, offensive fppd, which the latter fails to grind and properly' m-a. for nature's work, jn.0 ••—-' " trouble, congested and s one or all, wd f . , .

New York a $50,000 building, Minnesota one costing about $25,000, Iowa $4,000 and Indiotta $1,500. These dairy schools contain the most economical and modern equipment for conducting 1 the work of a home dairy, creamery or butter factory. Tho idea is to famil- ! iarizc tho student with the theory and ' principles in the lecture room, and practically apply these in the dairy Work room or laboratory The course of instruction in the dairy school is not narrow. The Work ex--* tends much beyond a direct Consideration of milk, butter and cheese. The number of instructors is not one, but to each subject even, in some cases, is a special instructor devoted. These teachers, be it understood, are not mere tiieorists, but men who have given much attention to their special branches, such as justifies one in terming them experts. Eon AND FAT Prtoi>uciNO Fool).—No thrifty farmer's wife will allow pullets to be killed for the table. Are you raising pullets for egg producers? And are you raising all as thoroughbred stock for breeding purposes? Then bear this in mind: Feed to secure rapid growth in bone and muscle, avoid fat. The corn and fat rations should be only to secure a juicy condition, with only small lines of fat along under the skin. Muscle forming feed is the egg producing feed—wheat, oats, barley, with other occasional feeds of buckwheat with say 20 per cent of corn in winter and 10 to 12 per cent of corn in spring and summer, until you wish to fatten, when corn and raw beef—all they will eat—will make them excessively fat, and the quickest way of any ration to be named. But this muscle growing feed builds up the structure for egg producing work. To do nil this for your fowls is treating them honestly and giving them a chance to pay you well for the work and feed you furnish them, and also enables you to sell stock which will not disappoint the purchaser.—Ohio Poultry Journal. TIIK IXCI:HA.TO.R IN WiXTEit.—From this time on is the proper period f or using an incubator, as one can learn before the broiler season comes on. The hen is an excellent medium for hatching in tho spring and summer, but as the hens do not sit in winter, except rarely, the early broiler must be hatched with incubators, which bring out several hundred chicks at a time, and as it costs but little more to care for a large number of chicks than to attend to a hen or two when tho snow is on the ground the incubator is much cheaper. Broilers often bring 50 cents per pound in the height of the season, and the cost of a pound of chicken does not exceed 0 cents. We must not omit the fact, however, that there are other expenses, as well as losses io meet, and we will also grant that the hen can raise her chicks better than it can be done for her, but not in the winter season. An incubator provides work in winter, and gives an opportunity to avoid loss of time by raising early broilers for market.—Farm and Fireside. Fix THK Coot's.—At this season of the year an examination, will show many repairs necessary about even the best regulated poultry houses. The cracks and crevices must be looked after and carefully closed so as to exclude the chill drafts of winter. Broken and cracked window glasses should be replaced with new ones, and everything put ship Shape for the cold weather. Don't expect eggs or even healthy chickens this winter if you provide quarters which make a heavy overcoat feel comfortable when you visit them. If the coops are in an exposed position a coat of tar paper will improve matters, or even a heavy banking of dry m anur e O1> leaves' covered with earth will go far toward providing protection. Take good care of your chickens and it will be far from labor lost,—Farm, Stock and Home, SOKT FEED,— Soft feed is a prominent factor in a hen's well-being, especially in cold weather, or when the mornings are frosty. The soft feed should be served hot, Tho hens won't injure themselves by eating too much before it becomes sufficiently cool — instinct teaches them better, Small potatoes, potato peelings, or rutabagas boiled and mashed, mixed with middlings so as to scald and still not be sloppy, is a food relished. A little wheat or screenings may be added before removing the mess from the stove. Feed in two ov three .vessels, aecprding to the size of the flock, so there will be no scrambling or fighting.— Farm, Stpck tvnd Home, MAS A MA6! GIN AND MOLASSBS.—A setts poultryman advises the use of gin a.nd molasses for cholera. To a pint o| gin he adds a gill of molasses, and fee- fpye wsing shakes it up well. The mixture is kept cprked when not in use. AtaW e spPpnful is, generally a dose.

(Irant had* called, fcpithe-< lioma. Surgeons treated it by, hetd* ic" measures. To reach the epofc whore the malignant growth lay, under tho tongue and neai* the thorax, necessitated an operation whot'oin the lower jaw was entirely cut in two and u portion of it removed and important muscles wore sevei'ed. 1'hott the two parts of the lower jaw were laid back to allow tho siu-geon to work under the roots of thotongtie. A peculiarity of the ease at this juncture lay in. 'tho fact that the muscles on each side of the mouth being incle" pendent of one another, the severed parts of tho lower jaw could not work in unison. The massotei 1 muscle, at> tached to the smaller • remaining portion of tho jaw, contracted in the pro* cess of healing, and the doctor, who had boon ti lino looking man before tho operation, now wont about with a misshapen face. Tho massotei 1 is one of tho strongest muscles in tho system, being tho only ono that does not act as a lever, but having a straight pull. Notice, in Illustration of itn power, how the boy who wishes to crack a nut puts it between tho molars anil then pulls tho massoter to crush ahead, or the playful puppy, who knows by instinct whore hia best grip is, struggling with a bone. A dental surgeon now came to tho rescue. It took a knowledge of the power of machinery, an inventive faculty and the skill of a sculptor in addition to tho dentist's regular acumen. A jackscrow with a ball and socket joint— exactly such as would be used to raise a locomotive, except in miniature — had to bo resorted to, and the jaw was jacked open, requiring a strain of several days, to compel the powerful masseter muscles to relax. This accomplished, a wedge was put in to keep that part of the mouth, apart; then the jackscrow was used to force the larger segment of the severed jaw back to its original circle, where it was held by a splint so devised as to be removable, till it had regained its normal condition, whereupon a gold jaw and teeth were modeled to fill the space and also bind the two sections of the jaw together. By tho aid- of tho surgeon's knife the disease had been entirely removed, and, followed up by this remarkable feat of dentistry, tho articulation and occlusion restored and mastication rendered as complete as before the operation. Previous to the dental work his food was pushed through the orifice between the upper and lower jaws. Another point of interest lies in the announcement that now cartilage is forming across* the chasm, and it is hoped in the coursa of a year or so to find the jaw working 1 independent of tho gold one, TAKEN FOR GRANTED. The Marked Difference In methods of Nursing tho Sick. ' 'The difference between the old and new schools of nursing is even more marked than that between the modern system of medicine and that , in vogue in tho days of our grandfathers," said Dr. Pulsar at tho club- tho other evening. "Perhaps you will understand this better if I tell you a little bit of my experience in 'the matter. This morning I visited a patient who had a trained nurse. "On my arrival I inspected the chart, which had been carefully filled in by the nui'se, givinsr mo all the 'information I could desire about th£ sick woman's pulse, temperature, respiration, oto, . taken at regular and frequent intervals during the night.
