Miss Melinda Parkinson had come down to New York to buy her sum- mer patterns and to indulge herself with a glimpse at the great world, of which hitherto she had only become ac- quainted through the columns of the weekly newspaper "It must be a mortal strange that amiable spinster, "where folks up and down Broadway in their Sunday clothes, and milk sells for ten cents a quart. And where they hain't no garrets to tbeir houses, aud go out to parties just when we Centemllers are tying on our nightcaps to go to bed. Well, well, it takes all sorts of people to make a world." So Miss Mehnda retrimmed her leg bora hat with saje green ribbons, sponged over her anuent black silk gown, in- dulged in the estravagance of new gloTes, and set foitb for the great American metropolis to visit Cousin Lemuel Lar- kins, whose family had frequently spent halcvon summers at the tarm, And to partake of whose hospitality she had had a standing invitation for some time Cousin Lemuel aud his eldest dangh ter, Persephone, met her at the depot, with faces ot friendly welcome Cousin Lemuel was a photographer on the Bow- ery, and Miss Persephone "did" super- numerary parts at the Sparkle theater and had the promise of "going on'' when- ever there should be a vacancy in the regular dramatis per son SB "Come Cousin said Mr Larkins 'Wbere'a tbe check for yonr baggage?

It'a really a yery superior neighborhood'" They supped off clam ehowJer, boiled lobsters, Vienna bread and Limburger the Lark ins family were cosmopolitan in their spent the evening at the Ingomar theater, for which Miss Persephone liad always limited number of "orders."

"It ain't burglars, is it? Nor the fire de- partment? Dear me. Cousin Melinda, what can you possibly be wanting at this time of said Miss Parkinson, "hush! Come with me at cried Mrs. Larkins, hurriedly her teet into list slippers and flinging on an ancient flannel dressing gown. "What ib the matter? Ain't no- body sick, is a whispered Miss Parkinson, as Mrs. Larkins joined her in the hall "A poor crazy creature on the roof nest door, all alone by herself, with nothing but a btep between her and death.'1 said Mrs. Larlans, beginning to tremble and develop strongly hysterical symptoms. "Are you sure, quite sure, now, Mehnda. that it ain't the Limbur- cheese setrin' heavy on your stom- ach? It don't agree with everybody, you know And "Come and see for said Me- linda; and she drew her cousin to the curtained casement which commanded the felme and tbe smoke blackened view previously alluded to "There!

Oh. yes, my dear; pVaps we'd better go, theu, or the poor dear'll fling herself over the parapet, and it'll be a clear case for the coroner's inquest" In the cloudy moonlight the two wom- eu crept down stairs and rang loudly at Mr, Eurnabee's door There was a delay There always la a delay atter the ringing of it city door bell But to Miss Parkinson and Mrs. Larkins there waa u delay which seemed almost interminable before Mr, Buraa- bee appeared oil the scene, a little old red nosed man, with scanty gray hair, a palm leaf patterned dressing gown, and a candle whose feeble flame flickered to and fro while he held it shaded from the night wind with one hand "Is it said Mr Burnabee, "or is it a accident on the elev-.ited road' I've always knowed it would come sootier or latei "The roof!
