THE EXCLUSIVE CLUB. "Edward, your election to tho iioMl brotherhood of which 1 am a member took CTO lost evening. Will yon accept my t congratulations?" Henry Klleraley entered my chambers *no afternoon with tho abovo announcement. Languidly reclining upon my lounge I half ro**� from the rvrnmbent position, and taking Kltersley's outstretched hand asked htm to repeat his remark, as I hod lx!cn three-quarters asleep when 1 heard it. My friend complied. I may ns well state, dear reader, that f heard with a thrill of the in tensest joy every word of Kllcrslvy's greeting tho first tlmo ho mured it. But among men of fashion anything resembling emotion is a vulgarity-a nonsense; besides! had anothor reason f>ir concealing my satisfaction^ having been created A member of tho Exclusive club, and that reason was pride. I had lived so long junong fashionable circles without enjoying the honor that I was unwilling Henry EUerslcy should see how highly 1 valued it. "Thank yon for coming to tell me, my dear fellow," I drawled la/.ily in reply to the repetition of my friend's most welcome announcement. "It's quite a surprise, treally, Cuctwyndo mentioned my having been proposed the other day, but 1 had completely forgotten the matter, I assure you." Ellersley smiled a little oddly. Perhaps be was keen enough to penetrate my mask of indifference; but be only remarked, walking toward the door: "And now tl;�t my message la delivered, EdwarJ, I must leave you for an engagement elsewhere. By the way," he continued, "Holmes and Krskine and More land, and half a dozen other men, want you to be round at tho club to-night, if you can �p;tre an hour or so. At about- 11, they said. Can you man Age it?" "I think ao," was my reply. '"Yes. thev can depend o;i me. Will you be there"' "Yes. An revoir." *'Au revoir." At 11 oVlock precisely 1 entered the �-k-gunt club house iu Pall Mali, with a t.-.! big of delightful triumph that I cannot recall in these advanced years of mine wii h out a smile at the foolish ambit iuus I used then to cherish so fondly. The one social distinction which I had su Ion;; coveted was, I thought, mine at hist. Out of the many who would lime sacrificed so much for the honor of calling themselves members of the Exclusive club I had enjoyed the compliment of being chosen. It waaa very pleasant and flattering truth to reflect upon. Hut I had little time for consideration just then. George Krskine, one of the friends wlm had bivn so zealous in obtuiniug my election, met .me as I entered the large and baudsom** hall cf the building. "Ah, Sternforth," he said, advancing and taking my hand cordially in his; "1 am delighted to fiud you have so soon as-mimed the rights of membership. Come into the card room; you will meet a host of old friends ther?." I found most of those assembled in the card room men with whom I had long been on various terms of intimacy or acqunint-�auce. They all appeared glad to see me- _ all treated me with a mixture, of cordiality .and courtesy which was very flattering to my self love and to my new sense of im-jportance. . While I stood among a knot of friends, rand shared in the conversation that engaged them, George Brskiue touched me on the shoulder, saying: "I have secured a vacant card table, Sternforth. Will you be my partner in a game of whi&t against .Holmes and Rivera!"' *'\Viilingly," 1 said. Erskine, I well knew, was accounted one of the best whist players in his circle, and I could not but hpprociatc the compliment conveyed by his request. "Hut you imif>t not forget," I added, "to introduce me to Mr. Hi vers. We are not acquainted." . A few minutes later the int ruduelion took place, and a lively and interesting game was entered upon. The stakes were high, and although 1 was a practiced player my ^luck seemed quite marvelous. Weakly assisted by Krskine I easily woa the first three games. As the deal was made by Hirers nt the beginning of .the fourth gnmel happened carelessly to glance at him. His features wcru of that mobile laud on which the pas-alons or emotions of the "inner man" are sasily portrayed. 1 read on them to my Intense surprise the profoundeat contempt, mixed with an apparently almost ungovernable anger. He returned my glance "with a fierce expression in his deep black, Spanish sort of eyes, that was far from pIcaMngtome. It was the kind of look which uo gentleman cares about receiving from another. . My blood rose on the instant. Was it * possible that he suspected me of foul play? \r*hat could 1 have done to merit . tbis moat singular indignation, tacitly expressed, It is true, but uone the less evident "Oblige me by explaining," I Bald, fn a � voice that thoroughly controlled the annoy-once i felt, "the cause of your somewhat . peculiar demeanor toward me, Mr. Hi vera. �> I am reluctant to believe that any in is-�-understanding should have occurred be- � tween us, but"- - To my consternation he interrupted me - with a sneer and a contemptuous wave of 'ttie baud in my direction. S "Sternforth neod uot assume with me ,the nmnoera of an injured party. 1 have placed whist too often uot to detect swindling, especially when so palpable " and open as hia. Tho maimers of low v .gambling houses have been up to the 'present time, 1 believe, wholly foreign to the uird tables of the Exclusive club. I "'' �#ret that one whom I believed to bo a gentleman should have introduced them thin evening.'* v , s I was ou my feet now with clinched Junds, and a face that must have been '- ghastly with half aaftothered rage. ' "Po ypu dare to aasert"- I began, but u��iy,or wouia nave aono so, had 1 I not prevented you.1* "Which I greatly regret, Erskine." My coolness was beginning to returt* now. "Why regret it?" continued Erskloe. "Gentlemen should find other weapons than their fists, Sternforth. A blow is a blow, however, no matter how lightly dealt. I suppose Rivera will challenge you?" Ho had hardly finished speaking before Holmes, the gentleman who had been Rivers' partner nt whist, made his way toward the throng. "I am requested by Mr. Rivers," he said, "to demand immediate satisfaction from yon for the insult you have inflicted." "Immediate satisfac-tionl" 1 said coolly. "How is that possible? Although the age of dtielliti.it Is past"-....... "Ah, ha! you hesitate!" exclaimed twenty voices. I looked about-me. It sceine4 as if the eyes of every man present were fixed intently upon me. "You are mistaken, geutlemen," I said, with the [jrc-ntest raininess of manner 1 could assume. "I do not hesitate, I merely tlesiiv to know what is expected of me In this matter." "Fiuthtr answered tho twenty voices. "1 do not refuse Mr. Rivers1 challenge, I am skillful nt no weapon but the pistol; ami its I have, I believe, tho choice of weapons"-addressing myself now exclusively to Holmes-"I shall of course choose that. Any further charge in the matter of time and place will, I trust, be assumed by my friend. Mr. Erskine." Erskine. bowed assent. A few moments of conversation took place between himself and Holmes, when, turning to me, he at length said: "I have decided upon both place and time-here and now. Does the arrangement meet with your approval? There is no necessity of making this affair-provided it does not result in very serious consequences-unduly public. Rivers has expressed a wish that the duel, if you accept his challenge, take place at ouce. The weapons also are in the building." "Very well," I said, with a voice that shook a little, In spite of my efforts to con trol it; "I consent to your proposition." "It is not the first time that matters of this sort have been settled here in the club upon the evening of their occurrence, Erskine went on. "So far, I am glad to state that nothing more serious than flesh wounds have been the result. Will you remain here while Holmes aud I measure the paces in another portion of the room? All will be prepared in a very few moments." With these words Erskine left me among the crowd of gentlemen by whom I was surrounded. 1 had not long to wait. Ho returned presently, saying "Everythingis in readiness. The nistance jt to be twelve paces. Will you follow me, if you please* Rivers is alreav",* >\auiug for you to appear." We passed arm in arm to the lower end of the lar�:e apartment. Rivers, as he had said, was there waiting my appearance, 1 confess to a very miserable feeling when tho pistol was put. iu my hand by Erskine. The suddenness of tliu whole matter had scarcely left room for thought until now Yisirna of one I loved better than all clue in the world haunted me in a huudred pleading ways during the next three minutes. I thought of the a^ony, too, that my family would feci on the morrow if the news of my death were to reach them in their quiet country home. My death! Was 1 to die like this?-shot down for the mere oIk dience to a tyrannous social code that in mv heart I had always despisod and bated? Well, hope of life was strong within mc to the last. I thought of her. "One!" Er.-kine's voice had spoken tun first word of ^"iLcnal, And sonirhovv that monosyllable wrought a change in my feelings, add'-.I force to my arm and a couragw my hfart that 1 hud wholly despaired of experiencing. "Twoi" 1 wheeled half round toward ray opponent. The. pistol wa-s clutched in my band now with a grasp oT steel. I was no i ferior marksmau ut ordinary times. I felt that my aim would be deadly. "Three!" I stood face to face with my opponent. -Fire!" Both pistols discharged simultaneously made one sharp report. Was I unhurt? 1 moved my limbs slightly, feeling uo pain in any of them. My opponent, seen fairly through a cloud of smoke, was standing erect-uninjured perhaps, like myself. And yet my aim had been sure, or at least I fancied so. Suddenly George Erakine's voice sound cd at my side, raised to a tone of the most extraordinary loudness: "Three cheers for Ned Sternforth! He has stood the test bravely!" I looked al>out me in utter bewilderment, while the cheers were given clamorously from every side. I tinned toward Erskine and asked "What, dovs that singular Iwbavior ni an on the part of yourself and the other hers? What have 1 done to de>ei ve thin enthusiasm? Oblige me by explaining. "That tank in mine," said the voice of Rivers, as he approached to where I stood. "I have beeu acting a part to-utght, Mr. Sternforth, which I assure you was a most disagreeable one. This evening's entire performance may be summed op in two words-your initiation. Perhaps you can now understand why it is that the Exclusive club Is so difficult to enter. The men who fall to stand the test put upon you this evening fall fn becoaiiiig members. The secrecy of our Initiation system nothing remarkable. Those who have experienced it without afterward becoming members are uot the ones to Inform society of their inability to 'stand fire,' Mortification usually keeps them silent. And now, continued Rivers, extending his band, "I trust that an apology for the ridiculous insults I hurled at you this evening will be fully accepted. Let the whole matter, like the charge of these hulletless pistols we fought with, end in-smoke." He offered me a cigar. I accepted it sud bis extended hand likewise, and so ended my first evening in the Exclusive club.- New York World. THE GOOD OLD FASHIONED PRIVATE SCHOOL FOR GIRLS. Z*rocres�Ive ConTertatlona-She Will Not He Fnirtlliar- How Children Are Spoiled-llrlltlant ImAj Macdouald-A Woman's Hair, Every state In tho Union has been generous to the public schools--munificent individuals have built aud endowed with lavish hands universities aud colleges for oung men, and within the last two decades woman lias hud doled out to her, with great reluctance, with much reserve and many misgivings, some of the crumbs which fall from the tables of the great universities. And four colleges, exclusively for women, have been built and generously endowed. The qucstiou as to her capacity to receive this blessing Is not yet decided, and the fearthat.lt will subvert the purposes of nalure and unfit her for the functions of domestic life is finding nervous and iuco-herent expression in the periodical litera-,ure and after dinner speeches of the day. Meanwhile there is a great and powerful arm of the oducatiouat force of this coun-,ry which has uo literature, no written history, which is seldom referred to by periodical, scientist, or the orator of the day, except in some flippant allusion to point amoral or adorn a tale*-this is the "private school for girls." For 000 years this institution has held a dignified and responsible place in the educational and social system of this country. To this tho American woman, such as she has Iven in times past and such as we find her today, owes the character, the culture, the grace and the embellishments which enable her to take her stand, not blushing for her ignorance or her stupidity, side by side with the cultivated and representative woman of other countries. It has no favor from the state. Being private property it cannot hold endowments; it has paid Its own taxes and supported itself. European educators have marveled that American writers should leave the world to learn by accident that American ladies were not all educated in their famous public schools. The French commissioner of education to the Centennial exhibition, whom I afterward met, could not forgive the committee which waited on him in New York that it had not afforded him an opportunity to visit the schools in which the accomplished women whom he had met In this country were trained.-Mrs. Sylvanus Recti in Scribner's, Won't Uo Now.

Mrs. Collls learned to telegraph that she might have little snatches of conversation with her husband during business hours or his occasional absences in Philadelphia, and so thoroughly did she acquire a knowledge that Gen.

She Will Not Be Familiar. What strikes the pilgrim from other lands Is the predominance of women in Boston. Women everywhere-In the restaurants, behind the lunch counters, in the shops, in the offices, women seem to be doing all the work. I don't find any fault with this arrangement. They are more civil than the men. I ouly wish they could become street car conductors. Probably they may some day. Down at Nantasket beach you find the same superabundance of thrj/air sex. They preside at the popcorn booths with all the dignity of long lineage and great mental development. Foreigners from New York or Chicago, ignorant of the customs of the country, sometimes make an effort to he pleasaut with these young ladies. The result is alwaysdisastrous to the foreigner. "I'll wait upon you, but I'll uot be familiar with you." That's the shibboleth of the Boston serving lady. I was much amused at theattempt of one of these "foreigners" just mentioned to bestow a small fee upon one of these young women. She drew herself up with all the hauteur of family pride-for no doubt her uame was Winthrop, or Adams, or Hancock, or Wlnslow-and then she remarked: "Excuse me, sir, we are liberally rewarded for our services by the corporate leasees vf the beach, and, consequently, the offer of any gratuity t� entirely a supererogatory act." Then turning to a small boy she murmured: "Johnny, accept the gentleman's nlcket. "We keep him for that purpose, In order not to offend those who may be strangers In Boston."-Cor.
