Truly sisterly affectioh was a holy and a beautiful thihgl She lad road as ttilch in moral philosophy, _nd likewise in poetry. Few feelings fcouid'compare with It in unselfish for- and constancy. Ami, as she had bald, Edward was one brother in ten tthousand—and not to be compared with scommon men. She began the preparations for the i-lve at half-past, two, pursuant to her husband's directions. Not that she I' expected to leave the house that after- ncpn, Edward's judgment being, in her estimation, but one remove from Infallibility; she could not believe -.hat the P trial of the horses would result as Mr. 'Withers had predicted, but that they would be-remanded to the stable and Custody of the.unreliable Jockey without approaching her door, or gladden- 'ing Harriet's eyes. Nevertheless, the i order had gone forth that she should don her cloak, furs, hat and gloves be| fore three o'clock, and Mr. Withers lj would be displeased were he to return at five and find her in her home dress. : Harriet tapped at hor door before she |. was half ready. "Just to remind you, my 'dear.-ma-, dam," she said, sweetly, "of what ir.y cousin said about keeping the horses standing." She was equipped cap-a- pie for the excursion, and Constance renewed her silent accusation of imper- i.tinent forwardness as she saw her trip down stairs to take her station at a |" front window, that "my cousin" wight ' see, at the fl^st glance, that she was ready and eager for the promised—and because promised by him—certain pleasure of the jaunt.' . Constance was surprised, five minutes before the hour designated, to hear a bustle and men's voices in tho lower hall. They had really come, then, in spite of her prognostications. Drawing on her gloves that she might "not be accused of dilatoriness, she walked to the door of her chamber, whan it was'thrown wide against her by her maid. "Oh, ma'am!" she blubbered, her cheeks like ashes'and her eyes bulging from their sockets. "May all the blessed .saints have mercy upon ye! There's •been'the- dreadfullest accident! Thoni brutes of horses has run away, and Mr. Witherses and Mr, Edward is both killed dead! They're a bringing them up-stairs this' blessed- mlnlt, and"— catching her mistress's skirt as 'sho dashed past her—"you're not to be frightened, ma'am, the doctor says! He sent me up for to tell-you careful!" Unhearing and unheeding, Constance wrested her dress from the glrl'r, hold, and met upon the upper landing of the staircase four men bearing a senseless form. The head was sunk upon' the .breast, and the face hidden by the ^shoulders of those who carried him, but |her eyes fell Instantly upon the right hand, which hung loosely by his side. 3he recognized the fur gauntlet that Bovered it as one of a pair of riding- 3ves she had given Edward Withers Christmas, and which he had worn since whenever he drove or rode. She had seen him pocket them that morning before going out, "Mrs. Withers! my dear lady! you really must not touch' him yet!" said the attendant physician, preventing her when she would have thrown her arms about tho injured man. He pulled her back by main force, that the body might be carried into the chamber she had just quitted, "Let me go! Let me go! Do you hear me?" her voice rising into a shrill scream that chilled the veins and pained the hearts of a.11 who heard it. "Dead or "alive, he belongs to me, and to no one else! Man! how daro you hold me? You do not know how much I'loved him—my darling! Oh, my darling!" The doctor was a muscular man, but, tn her agony of despair, she, was stronger than he, bade fair to master him, as'she wrestled to undo his grasp upon her arms. '•Is there no one in this place >vho can persuade her to be calm?" ho asked, imploringly, looking back down t:he stairs, There' was a movement at the foot of the steps, then the crowd parted instantly and silently, unnoticed by the • frantic woman. She was still struggling, threatening and praying to be ' released: when a pallid face, straakod with blQQc|, confronted her—a tender , hand touched her arm. "Cppstance, my Aear sister, my poor girl, come •with roe! Will you »w>t?" said, compassionate tones, • "She has fainted, Tbw la the best thing that cpuld have h&ppened,,', 1 said the doctor, sustaining the dead woigat p.f tbe sinking figure with mpro' easo {ban be baa held tbe writhing one, They bare her across tbe h»H to Ed* rqpjn 'as the most convenient ro treat; tpj jier, to bjr insensible state, and " r ' restoratives, was.' gatl>e>;?4, "She do call for you all the lime, sir, or 1 would. not have made 95 b*did as to disturb ye," said th§ gifl whd had beckoned hitfl to the eatrattce. a, "She is a bit out of her head, p66r lady!" "Where is Miss Field? Why UoSfi she not attend to Mrs. Withers?" naked Edward, gianclhg reluctantly at hh brother's bed. in after days he could smile ftt the recollection of the reply, uttered With contemptuous indlffe'rence: "oh, .he's a-going into high strikes on the back parlor sofy." At the tittle, he was only cortscioUS Of Impatience at the call of pity that obliged him to leave his perhaps dying relative in the hands of comparative strangers. He ceased to regret his compliance When the tears that burst from Constance's eyes at sight of him v/ere not attended by the ravings which had terrified her attendants. He sat down upon the edge of the bed, and leaned over to kiss the sobbing lips. "My dear sister, precious child!" he said, as a mother might soothe an affrighted daughter, and she dropped her head upon his shoulder, to weep herself into silence, if not composure. When she could listen, he gave her the history of the misadventure In a few words. Mr. Withers had Insisted upon handling the reins himself. This accounted to the auditor for, his use of Edward's gloves as being thicker than his, although their owner made no mention of having .lent them to him. The horses had behaved tolerably well until they were within,three blocks of home, when they had shied violently at- a passing omnibus, jerked the reins from the driver's hands, and dashed down the street, the sleigh upset at the first corner, and both . the occupants were thrown out, Mr. Withers striking forcibly against a lamp-post, while Edward was partially stunned against the curb-stone, They had been brought to their own door in a carriage, the younger brother reviving in time to alight, :with a little assistance from a friendly bystander, and to superintend the other's removal to the house and up the stairs. . Constance heard him through without interruption or comment, voluntarily raised her head from its resting place, and lay back upon her pillows, covering her face with her hands. One or two quiet tears made their way between her fingers ere she 'removed them,, but her hysterical sobbing had ceased. "I am thankful for your safety," she said so composedly that it sounded coldly unfeeling. "Now go back to your brother. He needs you, and I do not. I shall be better soon, and then I must bear my part in nursing him. If he should ask for me, let me know without delay," She sent her servants out when he had gone, and locked her door on the inside. "Who'd have thought that she and Mr. Edward would take It so hard?" said the cook, as exponent of.the views of.the kitchen cabinet. "If so be the masther shouldn't get over this, it will go nigh to killing her. I never knowed she were that fond of him. Ah, well, she ought to be, for it's her he'll leave well provided for, I'll be bound! Them as has heaps to 1'ave has plenty to mourn for them." An hour elapsed before Mr. Withers understood aright where he was and what had happened, and then his wife's face was the first object he recognized. It was almost as bloodless as his, yet she was collected and helpful, a more efficient coadjutor to the surgeons than was fidgety Harriet, whose buzzings and hoverings over the wounded man reminded Edward of a noisy and persistent gad fly. The moved gentleness of Constance'a tone in answering the patient's inquiries was mistaken by the attendants for fondest commiseration, and the family physician's unspoken thought would have chimed in well with the servant's verdict. Mr, and Mrs, Withers were not reputed to be a loving couple, but in moments of distress anil danger, the truth generally came to light, No husband, however idolized, could be nursed more faithfully or have excited greater anguish of solicitude than spoke in her dry eyes and rigid features, even if her .wijd outbreak at first seeing him had not betrayed her reaj sentiments. In her calmer review of the scene, Constance could feel grateful for the spectators' misconception which had shielded her from the consequences of her madness; could shudder at the thought of the ighpminy she bad narrowly escaped. But this was not the gulf from'whleh she now recoiled with horror and seifrlpafting that lefl her to ^vo}4 meeting the, eyes bent curios ly or sympathetically upon her, and tq cling tp the nerveless hand of him whose trust she had betrayed.. To him, her husband, she had not given a thought when the dread tidings of disaster- and death were brought to her. • What to hei' was an empty marriage voy, what the wpi'M'S reprgba tlon, whw s,he feelJeyed that %i tots ffittclt efigWd at tfii Slice 0 Bawar d, te dirt with at ndsaf ed Mr. WithSri ene 'mdrfilHg whett his brother came to his rtfdtft te inquire after his health, and to receive his critnmaiidB for the business day.

As he said itj the respondent turned with a pleasant smile to his aister-itt'laWi who was pouring 6Ut her husband's chocolate at a stand set in front of his lounge. she started perceptibly at the proposition and her hand shook in replacing the silver pot upon the tray, ''1 could not think of itl" she said hastily. "It is kind and thoughtful itt you to suggest it, Elnathan, but, indeed', I greatly prefer to remain at home." "It is my preference that you should go!" The invalid spoke decidedly, but less Irascibly than he would have done to .anyone else who resisted his author* ity. "It is now four weeks since my accident, and you have scarcely left the house In all that time. You are growing thin and pale from Want of sleep and exercise." "I practice calisthenics every day, as you and Dr. Weldon advised," rejoined Constance, timidly, "But within doors. You need the fresh out-door air, child. You have taken such good care of me, that I should be very remiss in my duty, wera I to allow you to neglect your own health." He had grown very fond of her within the period he had mentioned, and showed it, in his weakness, more openly than dignity would have permitted/. had he beeri Well. He put his hand upon her shoulder as she sat upon a stool beside him, the cup of chocolate In her hand. "Recollect! I must get- another nurse should your health fail. You see how selfish I am?" A jest from him was noteworthy, for Its rarity; but Constance could not form her lips Into a smile. They trembled 'instead in replying. "I see how good and generous you are! I will drive, if you insist upon it, but there is not the slightest necessity for your brother's escort; . John is very careful and attentive. Or, if you wish me to have company, I will call for Mrs, Mellen. She has no carriage, you know?" "Send yours for her whenever you like, by all means. But, until I am able to accompany you, it is my desire that Edward. shall be with you in your drives whenever this is pra'ticable. My late adventure has made me fearful, I suppose. Call this a sick man's fancy, If you will, my dear, but indulge it. At twelve, then, Edward, the carriage will be ready. Ascertain for yourself before you set out that the harness is all right, and have an eye to the coach' man's management of the horses." « (TO HE COXTISfUHU.I DA1M ASD POtmf RY, 8US MUHAL ttd* ih* t« tha fciri tit ll*« fctttifc fashidtt* ftbles Ih this coutl- tfy have tak^h td wotk ift the datty, says Chicago dhfonlelei The fad Is ft6t n6w by atvy means.

Lady's • $le,}n.jHrjeji were .s.e J»P»S tt-:*a» The Male Song Bird Strut leg His . . . • - : Wnnt«. ...-,• A class of lovers that may well be considered is that of which the bluebird is one conspicuous example and the goldfinch another — the class in which the females do all the work of nest-building, while the males devote themselves to: singing, says the Chau- tauquah. At first thought these males are so very much like some men that we all know—men who are pretty and are given to compliments and who are enabled to dress well through the wisdom and labor of their wives — that they are slightingly spoken of by nearly all -students of bird habits. Even the gorgeous Baltimore oriole is but .half complimented, for ho only occasionally helps at the nest-making, But let the observer consider the cases of these birds a little further and it appears that the oriole, at least, is, deserving of sympathy rather than faint praise. No one can watch the oriole lady at her knitting for any length of time without seeing her good man try to help. He will bring something and offer to weave it in, but the chances are that the madam will first order him off and then, if he persists, make a dash at him with her bi}l that sends him mourning to another tree. He really mourns, too, though, in silence. I have known of a case where a male oriole sat watching his wife for a half hour without singing a single note. The bluebird, too, is often treated very brusquely by his little better half. The truth is the poor fellows who have been derided for singing- in 'idle de-' light while their wives tolled are not a little henpecked. The gpidfinch cannot be palled henpecked but he certain' ly does not deserve censure, Madam builds her nest because she cau dq -}t better than he can. That he would Uke to help is perfectly plain to one who \yatcbes, for he goes with her as she flies away for material, sits by her as she picks it up and flies hack with her as she returns to the neat to weave }t in. And wherever he goes 'he bubbles. over- with song. People wftp blame the males for not helping to build do no.1 understand, I think, the dlfferen.ce between woyk as we see it and wprk as birds see it, To us labpr is d,rud.gT evy; to the birds it is delightful play, tated, and French wohien of high degree were soon busy making butter. The Princess of Wales, who had been brought up in the most democratic fashion by the sensible Danish king, found that actually milking the cows ftt Sandrlttgham and superintending the dairy gave her better health than all the medicine of the court physician. The Princess Maud also learned to be an adept and no dairy maid in that; British Isle can beat young royalty making butter. Some time ago that; favorite, Fanny Davenport, lost her health. Nobody saw or heard of her. A nervous prostration was said to be the cause of her retirement. Then came a rumor from her country place.; She was milking two cows at dawn, skimming the cream off yesterday's milk, and finally churning a little blue- handled dasher in a little'blue churn, until she could lift out great spoons of yellow butter. Then the report came that she jvas weir again. The finest private dairy in the world belongs to G-overnor Levi P. Morton, who built it after his many daughters began to grow to girlhood. This dairy was for a long time managed by the family. A milkmaid would do the butter work and the Morton girls would help her. They lived at Ellerslle then, and part of every day was spent with the cows and the milk. To this day if they were sick or out of sorts they go to the farm and revel In the marble butter rooms for a day. When the youngest was taken to San Francisco for her health last winter she begged to go to the butter house instead. The little daughters of President Cleveland are also- learning, In a small, sanded room at Gray Gables, the secrets of the; dairy- There it is a common occurrence for the comely wife of the chief executive to be seen teaching Ruth and Esther; how to churn. This summer the little tots can make butter to the tune of their sweet kindergarten songs, which they have studiously worked at all winter. This homely employment has been found a great panacea for the nerves of the emotional actresses as well as society 'women. Olga Nethersole has learned Its value, and no better equipped dairy is found than the lovely young English woman comes into, attar she has arisen at dawn to milk the cows. And Calve, the great Carmen, finds no greater happiness, when the Hinging season is over, than to fly to hor farm where,; feeding the chickens, and milking the cows, she .forgets all. about the footlights. lay lifeless before her? - M Ma»! npt knqw hQW I iQYed biro?" she e,ai4, Sh,e, mjgbt have a^ed, «j never Ituport on Sklmiulnar milk. Bulletin No, 42 of the Utah experiment station reports results of experiments in creaming, made by F, P. Linfield, B. S, A. The following are the conclusions drawn from the experiments: 1, As regards thoroughness of skimming, the effectiveness of the methods of creaming milk, according to our work, stands In the following order: (1) Separator, (2) shallow pans, (3) deep pails. 2, When' the setting methods are practiced, the pans will give much the best results during the winter, or cold months.. 3, There Is no advantage, but rather the opposite, in moving the pans into the house during the cold weather, provided that they be kept in a place where the milk will not freeze, 4, Of the deep setting cans, those which are skimmed by drawing the sklm-inilk from the bottom, give the I better results; but the Cooley or submerged can, as regards thoroughness of skimming, does not seem to possess any advantage over tbpse not submerged. 5, From the results given it is evident that from a herd of ten good cows, a separator wouU be a wise investment, The extra butter obtained by its use, valued, at 20 cents a pound, would "pay 20 per cent, a year on its cost, as compared with, results from shallow pans, and 50 per cent, a year as compared With deep setting- C, With the .deep setting methods the cooler the water is kept, }n which the milk Is set, the better the skimming. Jn feet, to do the best skimming it fs absojutoly ,necessavy 'to use ice, and a sufficient quantity of it tp keep the .water At 4Q degrees O r below, at all tim.es. Ing very eafeful not ta aterfeed tfcett, and yeti will he surprised at the amenm of fat they will lay eftt ,*h« time fa* quired to fattens ft dtick should Hot ex* eeed fourteen days. As soon.as they get fat they will commence shedding their feathers,' Then jick out the fait* est and dress them,' as they wilt get full of pin»feathers in three days, If dressed ftt the right.titne the feathers will pull out very easily, If picked too soon they will be fety tight and likely to fetch the skin along; while if too late the pin-feathers will be very numerous. They must be shaved, A shoemaker's knife with a quite narrow blade is the best. Grind it Very thin half way to the back, then use a*razor strop and keep it sharp enough to shave with. If the pin feathers are cttt closa to the skin they will not injure tho sale in the least. I have reference to dry picking. Of course the pin-feathers can be pulled out When they are scalded, though It will pay to always dry pick as you cannot hold scalded stock, while dry picked stock will keep indefinitely, which means a great deal when the market is overstocked; and will sell for enough more at any time to pay for the extra trouble. The Oooic. No fowl can be reared with as much profit and with so little care as tha goose. After they have attained the age of four months but little attention is required other than supplying plenty of fresh water, a good grass range and a scrupulously dry roosting place, whuch must also be free from lice and other vermin fatal to the young, sayn Fancier's Review. If it is impossible to provide free range, tho next best substitute Is wire netting, which need bo but about 18 inches high to confine them until mature. Give them fresh water twice each day, also green food such as turnip tops, celery and cabbage or allow them free range morning and evening, T'here is no doubt that there is profit in goose culture. When Thanksgiving time arrives you can generally dispose of the young goslings at ten cents per pound, and their average weight will be about ten pounds. Suppose, for instance, you have twelve "gooselets" at $1 each, the receipts from the sale would be $12 and the cost of feed has been but a trifle. It la safe to say that your profit will have been $10 on the transaction. Of course they cannot always be disposed of at $1 each, but on the other hand the price is often more than a dollar, hence we take it as a basis on which to figure. We doubt if fancy fowls would pay better, considering, of course, that we always have a ready market for our geese. By cross- Ing a China gander on Toulouse geese, large goslings are obtained, quick to grow nicely marked with medium length necks, yellow bills and remarkably easy to domesticate. My,expert, ence has clearly demonstrated that thei rearing of geese should be done entirely separate from the rearing of fowls, as the old and young of both are naturally inclined to be pugnacious, especially so after the young are about half grown. We favor hatching by hens, remarks the Fancier's Review, giving four eggs to each, and after one month the attention of biddy is no longer necessary. Late In the season If females are plenty we allow the goose to hatch her young and we give each a clutch of ten eggs. This number is sufficient for safety. If too large a number is placed under the goose some are liable to be broken. Geese are easily and profitably raised in the South.

To attempt to work over one that has no end of projections and cross beams is discouraging in the extreme, Cracks here and there-admit the air and are difficult to effectually stop. We saw such a bouse last winter, where tha owner bad attempted to paper up tho apertures by which the wintry blasts found access. He bad used felt paper, nailing it on over tbe Joists and leaving a dead-air space between the paper and the boards. This bad apparently been all right for a time, till the bens got to flvins against it and' thus tearing it fi-orn the joists, The tacks held on to the wood all right, but the paper was simply pulled over the beads, So we say that new bouses are desirable where they can be secured, Matched lumber for building will doubtless pay best In the end, though it may cost more at first. • Norte, or "any towns which are passed. -The"Weather, is delightful until as "late as; January,;^ and no Inconvenience will be •ekperi^:: enced at night If you do have, to'.
