"Master says she would give him more'n he brought," He Smiled affably at,..the .two Jlttle stiff black- figures.^and! departed tn search of his mistress. "What—what did he say?" gasped I "Something about a Oh. goodness H #raclous! Oh, help; help, help, help help!" The two sisters had bounded on to the settee, and stood there with staring eyes and skirts gathered in,'while they filled the whole house with their yells. Out of a high wicker work basket which stood by the fl-re there had risen a flat, diamond-shaped head with wicked green eyes which came flicker- Ing upwards, waving gently from side to side, until a foot or more of glossy, scaly neck was visible. Slowly the vi- cloua head came floating up, while at every oscillation a fresh burst of shrieks «ame from the settee. , "What in the name of mischief! •cried a voice, and there was the mistress of the house standing In the. doorway. Her gaze at first had merely tak- •en In the fact that two strangers were standing, screaming upon her red plush •sofa. A glance at the fireplace, how•ever, showed her the cause of the ter ror, and she burst into a hearty fit of laughter. "Charley," -she shouted, "here's Eliza misbehaving again." i "I'll settle her,' 'answered a mascunm •voice, and the young rinan dashed into the room. He had a brown horse-cloth In his hand, which he.threw over the Tbasket, making' it 'fa'sUw'ith a piece o twine so as to effectually imprison its inbate, while his aunt ran across to re assure her .visitors. "It is only a rock snake," she ex lained. i "Oh, Bertha!" "Oh, Monica!" gaspe the poor exhausted gentlewomen. ; "She's hatching out some eggs. Tha Is why we have the fire.

Will the doctors help her to qualify? will the lawyers help her to be Called to the bar? will the clergy tolerate her In the church? Oh, It is close your ranks then and refer poor woman to her mission! Her mission! To be thankful for coppers and not to nterfere with the men While they grabble for gold, like sWlne f ound a trough, that is man's reading of the mission of women. You may sit- there and sneer, Charles, while you look upon your victim, but you know that it is truth, every word of It." Terrified as they were by this sudden torrent of words, the two gentlewomen could not but smile at the sight of the flery, domineering victim and the big apologetic representative of mankind who sat meekly bearing all the sins of his sex. The lady struck a match, whipped a cigarette from a case upon the mantelpiece, and began to draw the smoke into her lungs. I find it very soothing when my nerves are at all ruffled," she explained. "You don't smoke? Ah, you miss one of the purest of pleasures— without a reaction." Miss Williams smoothed out her silken-lap^ "It Is a pleasure," she said, with some reproach to self-assertion, "which Bertha and I are rather too old-fashioned to enjoy." "No doubt. It would probably make you very. Ill if you attempted it. By the way, I hope that you will come to some of our Guild meetings. I shall see that tickets are sent you." "Your Guild?.". "It is not yet formed, but I shall lose no time in forming a committee. It is my habit to establish a branch of the Emancipation , Guild wherever I go.

"Yes, we have one or two other visits to pay," said the elder sister. "You will, I am sure, excuse us. I hope that you will find Norwood a pleasant residence." '•'.'".••• .

N,ow let me see, which of you is Miss Williams and which Miss Bertha Williams?" . "I am Miss Williams," said, Monica, still palpitating, and glancing furtively, about in dread of some new horror. "And you live, as I understand, over at the pretty little cottage. It is very mice of you to call so early..I don't sup- pose-that'we shall get on, but still the intention is equally good." She crossed her legs and leaned her back against the marble mantelpiece. I "We thought that perhaps we might be of some assistance," said Bertha, timidly. "If there is anything which we 'could do to make you feel more at home—" i "Qh, thank you, I am too old a traveler to feel anything but at'home'where- ever I go.

The great scales of fate had been held on a level for him; for where in all great London could One find two sweeter girls, more loving, more Intelligent, arid more sympathetic than Clara ahd Ida Walker? So bright Were they, so quick, so interested in all which Interested him, that if It were possible for a man to be compensated for the loss of a good wife then Balthazar Walker might claim to be so. Clara was tall and thin and supple, With a graceful, womanly figure. There was something stately and distinguished in'her carriage, "queenly" her friends called her, while her Critics described her as reserved and distant. Such as it was, however, it was part and'parcel of herself, for she was, and had always from her childhood been, different from any one around her. There was nothing gregarious in. her nature. She thought with her own mind, saw with her own eyes, acted from her own impulse. Her face was pale, striking rather than pretty, but with two great dark eyes, so earnestly questioning, so quick in their transitions from joy to pathos, so swift in their comment upon every word and deed around her, that those eyes alone were to many more attractive than all the beauty of her younger sister. Hers was a strong, quiet soul, and It was her, firm hand Which had taken over the duties of her mother! had ordered the house, restrained the servants, comforted her father, and.upheld her weaker sister, from-the day of that great misfortune. .. Ida Walker was a hand's breadth smaller than Clara, but was a little fuller Irt the face and plumper., in the figure. She had light yellow hair, mischievous blue eyes with the light of humor ever twinkling In their depths, and a large, perfectly formed mouth, with that slight upward curve of .the corners which goes with!a keen appreciation of fun, suggesting even In repose that a latertt smile is ever lurking at the edges of the lips. She was modern to the soles of her dainty. little high-heeled shoes, frankly fond of dress and of pleasure, devoted to .tennis and to comic opera,,delighted with a,dance; which came her way only too seldom, longing ever for some, new excitement, and yet behind all this lighter side of her character a thoroughly good, healthy minded English girl, the life and soul of the house, and the idol of her sister and her father.

It was put In place In 1778, The part which Is preserved was fished up from the bottom of the river in 1855, but the greater part was sold for old Iron to the West Point foundry, years before. if it Tender and Trne« For a long time a tall, spare man, past life's meridian, kept a little tailoring shop on Third, street In Walla Walla where ho eked out at best but a precarious existence. He said but little and walked quietly about as if shun acquaintances, or to hide himself from the knowledge of men. He moved as one who bore with pain life's burden and longed to lay It down somewhere, anywhere so that It was done and he at -peace. So, one day not long ago, word came that the strange old man was dead. He was found In a. peaceful sleep, with one hand over his quiet heart. No one had seen him die. The day before he told a young girl that He was sick and would soon be past "the sleeping and waking." As he had no relatives there, and no one to speak In his behalf, there was an Inquest, and among his effects was an old, worn but loving letter from a sister who lived In a far off Isle in the Southern seas. Two army discharges showed him to have served under the fiery cross of St. George,' In India, at Malta and at Gibraltar, and, as his life's history developed, It was found that he had been a soldier under the starry flag as. well; and the verdict was that he had been an English soldier and was dead In a foreign land. If he had been seemingly .friendless while living, he was not friendless now, when he was dead. For when It was known that he had been a soldier in the Union, the true-hearted boys of the Grand Army of the Republic asked no more, but silently gathered around 'him and tenderly- lifted his poor, worn body Into the ; casket -.they, had provided, "disposed his weary limbs at length, folded his thin hands. smpothed his hair as softly as his mother did In the glad days of his youth, and when they laid him down to .rest within the shadow of the beautiful mountains, two flags lay crossed on John Crelghton's breast. One was the flag of England, and one had on It forty-four stars. New Clothes tot th« A*mjr. The hew blouse Is very simple In design, In cut and general shape much the same as that now In use, but braided only on "the front edges, the bottom, the collar, and on each side" where there Is a "vertical opening on each hip." The letters V. S. in gold and the distinctive: Insignia of the branch of service to which the officer belongs will be attached to the collar, the present forage cap ornament being worn for that purpose—ornamentation of an Illustrated reading matter kind. The sword-belt will be worn under the garment as at present,'the sword hook passing through the vertical opening on the left, side, except In field service, when It will be worn outside the blouse, the revolver, .as Is the custom in our service, being carried In a holster on the right side of the belt. It woUld seem that the main advantage possessed by the new blouse over the coat now In use lies in Its reduced cost, owing to the suppression of the ornamental braid on breast and sleeves. The present forage cap Is not a very practical or comfortable head covering, but It has a certain jaunty military air entirely lacking In., that .to be worn in the army after Jan. 1, : .189.6, unless a kind Providence causes a change to come over the minds of the gentlemen having In charge the regulations governing the clothing of Uncle Sam's soldiers.

Had the unknown builder who ^ erected and owned these new villas contented himself by simply building each within its own grounds, it is probable that • these three small groups of peopje would have remained hardly conscious of each other's existence, and that there would have been no opportunity for that action and reaction which is here set forth. But there was a common link to bind them together. To single him* self out from all other Norwood build' era the landlord had devised and laid but a common lawn tennis ground, which stretched behind the houses with taut-stretched net, green close-cropped sward, and widespread whitewashed lines. Hither in search of that hard exercise which is as necessary as air or food to the English temperament, came young Hay Denver when released from the toil of the city; hither, too, came Dr. Walker and his two fall- daughters, Clara and Ida, and hither also, champions of the lawn, came the short-skjrted, muscular widow and her athletic nephew,' Ere the summer was gone they, knew, each other in this quiet nook as they might not have flone after years of a stifCer ^nd more formal acquaintance, and And especially to the admiral the doctor were this eloper and companionship of value, Each had & void in his IJfe, as every sa . an,4 9,0 JU*pal(J up wMin thte it' Prpvjtdence?.

It Tokos 1,000 Years for the .TJglit of Some Stars to Reach Us. While, however, it Is Interesting to know the distance of some of the stars in miles, when 'stated in that way the numbers are so large that they frequently convey very indistinct conception to the mind. For this reason it is customary to estimate star distances In "light years." A light year Is the distance that light, moving at the rate of. 186,300 miles per second, travels in one year. This amounts in round numbers to 5,880,000,000,000 miles. . The distance of Alpha Centauri Is 4|35 light years; that of Sirius, the dog star, is almost exactly twice as great, or 8,6 light years. In other words, light requires 8,'6 years to come to us from,' Sirius. And these are among the very nearest of the stars. Some, whose parallaxes have been rather estimated than measured, appear to be situated at a distance which light could- not. traverse In less than one or two centuries. The great star Arcturns, for instance, has, accord- Ing to Dr, Elkin, a parallax of only eighteen onerthousandths of a second, Its distance must, in that case, be about 181 light years, or move than 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 miles. And if its distance is so great then, since light varies inversely as the square of the distance from its source, it cari be shown that Arcturns must ' actually give 5,000 or 6,000 times as much light as the sun yields, Yet Arcturns is evidently much nearer than the vast majority of the stars are. Not one in a million is known to have a parallax large enough even to be intelligently guessed at, There may be stars whose light requires thousands instead of hundreds of years to cross the space separating them from us. We thus see that'onlyft few points on the nearer shores of the starry universe lie within reach Pf our measurements; here and there a jutting headland, while behind stretches the vast expanse over which the hundrds of mU^ lions of stars known to exist are scattered, _ dipt. Clem a Major. Captain John Clem, the drummer boy of Chlckamauga; has been promoted to the rank of major In the United .States army. Captain Clem's life story Is interesting: "He was born in Newark, O., Aug. 13. 1852. He was the third son of Roman and Elizabeth Clem, of German descent. He had five brothers and .three sisters. All are dead now except h'lmself and one sister. His mother died in 1860, and shortly afterward his father married again. Having a child's prejudice against a stepmother, he ran away from home when not quite nine years of age, and his family heard nothing from him f° 1 ' over two years. How he came to join a Michigan regiment I never learned, but probably he wanted to get among strangers, so he would not be recognized and sent back home. Being fond of music, he soon became an .excellent drummer, and he had such winning ways'th'at'the men made a pet of him wherever he went. There have been different stories about his shooting the rebel officer, but the following as nearly correct as I can remember; .''After'the battle the troops were somewhat mixed up, some of both sides having got beyond the lines, Johnny did not hear the command to retreat, and finding himself in a crowd where the men were taking prisoners, thought he would take one. He had picked up a revolver that had been dropped by some officer, and stepping up to a rebel general said; 'You are my prisoner.' The general swore at him and threatened to Kill him. but before he could make a movement johnny fired; the man fell from his hprse. Johnny climbed IntP th'e saddle and/rode back tP the Union lines." The stpry was confirmed by General Geprge H. Thomas, and at the close of the war he had Johnny sent to West Point. He is novy statlpned at Atlanta, Ga,, and ranks a s captain and assistant quartermaster. He , was married ftt Fprt McHenry May 35, 1875, to Mlsa Antia French, daughter of the late General French. eager glee of a street' urchin Inquiring of some honest ; fellow; in town "on pass" and doomed by department order to wear this most unmartlal looking headpiece, 'What had happened to his wheel/ or whether, 1 he ! had "bust his tire."

Gen. Grant Bulod Blank*. i Upon him the adjutant-general ^put the critical eye, when Grant applied to him, and semed, like all the others, to be disposed to measure; the unassuming man by his clothes rather than by his record arid his intelligence. He, too, said; "Well, 4 1 don't know that there is anything you can do to help us. We are • pretty well organized. But." he added, "hold on; you must know how to rule blanks for the making out of such reports as we make •up, Y6u certainly learned "how to do. that when you were in the army." "Oh, yes,' replied Captain Grant, "I know how those blanks should be ruled." "Well, you see," continued the adjutant-general, "we are short of these blanks. The department at Washington cannot forward us the printed blanks as fast as we need them, the demand is so great. I think I'll set you to work ruling blanks. You may come around to-mprrpw." Captain Grant catjve.faccprdlng to ap-, pointment, and paper," ink and pen with ruler were given to him. But • he was not permitted, to have a desk in the room where most of the clerks of the adjutant-general worked. That was a room well carpeted, a room with handsome desks and other convenient and comfortable furniture. Just outside pf It was a little ante-ropm, where the floor' was bare, and the only -furniture was a plain table and a hard-bottomed chair. There they put Captain Grant and set him to wprk ruling blanks; and thus, tn that 'humblest pf clerical work, he who was a few years later to command all Us armies, and finally to rule the nation, began his formal servlqe, in the war, you'd'etermine how fast or how slow your crops grow and don't care whether it rains or shines. «!,««'« Four cents in stamps sent to Chas. &- Fee,«Qen'l Pags.
