Her low. even tone betrayed the hidy in its well chosen words; and hei slim, white hands bore no truce of toil on the smooth skin. She was cour- teous to who cunte info intercourse with her. but intininte with none. 3hc had nursed Susie Y? hit ing through a long period of contagious fevnr.wtnning the devotion of thut little iniidun, and the aiannirer soon put her into the po- sition uf Forewoman.

But the crowning enormity was the refusal to contribute to the silver tankard. The excited jjmup in the ante-room dispersed for the day. walking home in tho twilight of the cool September evening, and still they talked of the forewoman The question is." said Mary Leigh, who had been the foremost in the anto- ropni discussion, what does s'.ie do with her money She never puts any in the factory savings bank she certain- ly spends nothing on her dress.

A man past thirty he hud risen in the employ of Meredith Son from a lad of fourteen, had saved money from a handsome aiilary, with the avowed intention of purchasing a place in the firm, upon the iinticipated retirement of old Mi. Meredith, who was known to favor the intention Among all the clerks and workmen" in tho great faotory there wus no ouo. so handsome as Walter Rodman, none so great a favorite with all. But he had gone thirty years of life, fancy free, until Ellen, Churchill cause to the factory. There was something in the noble, refined.face of the young girl thnt at- tracted Walter Rodman from the first. That there wuc some heavy trouble brooding in tho madness of her dark eyes, he never doubted, but if ever puri- ty and goodness were pictured in hu- man were in Ellen's From his father he learned much of the new comer, of the quick adaptability -he showed for work evidently nuw to her, of the almost masculine bruin thut fitted her so anon to control ot the loom-room, where at work., in Of her antecedents lie knew only that she brought u letter froui the cler- gyman of her parish, a small, town in New York State That she'was a wo- man of culture ami refinement they could see fur themselves. But Walter Itodumn, by nature frank and true, an his heart, more and more acknowledged Ellen for its queen, grieved over" the evident mystery of her life While in her conversation she odyancucT nobJe nnd generous views, her .whole style rof ivin-r was penuriuun to an extent rare- ly seen of her agtCeven when she; commanded. It was not merely eftdnomy, but saving pushed to extremi- ty. There was n struggle constantly in the mind of tho young strug- gle between his love and his fear of re- pentance if he urged the suit. It was revolting to him to think of his wile conducting his household on parsiiuo nious principles, refusing to bestow of his abundance in charity, dressing meanly, and perhaps influencing him to the same miserable habits. And yet. one hour with Ellen drove all such thoughts away. The low, 8uft.r.jjoice, always tinged with her habitual sadness, conveyed such a mirror of a pure, tender heart, a cultivated mind, a noble soul, thnt Walter forgot the course, mean dress, the many stories rife in the factory of Elleu s stinginess, and knew ho loved her he had never Left-re loved any wotntin JJut when the silver tankard wns pre- sented to Mr. Hodman, aud Ellen's name. wu.-  couuiiujr house ni.d For a time lie woiked steadily.

It was then that Ellen proved her- self to be thr noble woman I believe her to bo. She was suffering already for her brother's crime, having lost her position us organist and most of her music pupils having left her. Despite all this she went to the firm and pleaded lor the lad. Her eloquence gained her something.

Winter had come and gone, and spring Minshhic was making all nature glad, when one bright morning the train through left a single passenger at tho village station lie was a tall, hnndsouie man. dressed weli, without nnd he inquired at the station for i he residence ol Miss Churchill The white cottage as you turn the street from was the answer. It was found, and at the gate the traveler halted. The windows, shaded by a wide veranda, were open, and he could see the tasteful parlor. Near the window stood a beautiful woman, trail ing a vine over a network nf strinir Her face was pietlv averted, but the btruigf-r could see thut the pallor and sadness of the past were gone I'pon the giaceful figure was a dress (if fleecy muslin, tastefully miuie. and trimuit-d with soft lace ruffle" at the throat and and a few wcH-cJiot.cn ornaments. Suddenly some i.iner seti'e secnied to tell Ellen she was watched She turned and saw Walter Redman looking earnestly, wiMfully at her. A quick flush swept across her cheek, and her eyes lighted gladly as she forward to meet him May I come iu he asked opening the little irate. I am very glad to welcome shr answered, and then extended her hand as he sprang lightly up tho I( is not fair to repent lovers' talk. Suffice it that before Walter left the little cottage to take the refuin train, he had won the dearest of 1m hea't, and when summer bloomed.

The expeiience of last year with poor get'd corn, nut only in Miunesoti, but over the entire country, will probably stimulate good farmers to extia efforts to save their own seed coro. save u light. In Minnesota there is but one way to do it, and that is to gather it early and thoroughly dry-the cob before Irtizing weather. If the germ Freezes before it is perfectly dry it is ruined The best and suresC way to go through the field as soon as the corn is glazed and select the best and ripest and trace tht'.Di up, and hang in a dry lull, near a stove-pipe, or in a room heated a por- tion of each day. Never hang it over a crib of corn, or over bind of grain ot any kind, as the steam, or vapor, even the slightest, is sufficient to destroy the gruin. Some h.ing seed corn in the iuioke house and kindle a light fire un- der it each day, until it is dried and well smoked. The only advannge of the smoking is that irophcrs do not like it and will not dig it up after planting. Corn should remain on the cob until nearly the time winted to plant, as the very best seed corn is not reliable sixty dnys after shelling uiik-ss kept dry nnt airy Never put seed corn in burre' ur bins, but let it hang in the drying place until spring.

How long T Morn'n two hours ago They were much excited o-rer news, and asked what they could do get to New York speedily. 1 told them I didn't know. The had stopped running a month, although still ran to Kingston, the river open that far up. She would leave that evening for New York, and the stage coach which left Albany a couple hours before would transfer its passen- gers nnd mails to the steamer at Kings-' ton Point. Then the gentlemen fsaid; they tiiuct get that boat, and asked if V knew <-fa couple of fast horses in the city, and if they could hire or get a car- riage to the stage in. It was a matter oflife and death, they said, and would pay any price I asked what price, J and ttuy told me they would pay to beat the stage to Kingston. It was a big sum, aud I whistled I said I'd take them, and ran off. I found friend of mine Haik Lewis we_ bitched up the horses to a four seated sleigl the two gentlemen bought some whisky.J.-ind away we went 'lickity split' for Kingston. Oh, how we did Two hours behind the stage, and yet before we reached Athens we passed it. Near Catskill the horses gave out com-' plefely, and we had to hire n i.ow team. 1 didn't want to go anp further on ac- count of the horses, but one of the gen- tlemen asked, is that team of jours worth T 'Three hundred dol- lars.' I said. Drive ho answered. I'll for it.' OKCC we tipped over, and half an hour was i-pent in getting to rights. Then we went at it again, and half-past four we drove up to Kincston Point, where the steamer lay all loaded, bu: waiting for the Albany mail. The two men went <.n board and asked for Cnpt. Dean. He came aft and they told him what they told Lewis and I. corning down. How they re- sided in Canada, but were the sous of Engli.-h nobleman, who had recently died leaving a valuable estate. Their j presence was wanted immediately in London if they would save the estate from a designing relative. The packet suited from New Yo'k to Liverpool on the fiist tide the next morning. They uiust grt it, or wait thirty days ihe next ship, and so lose their fortune. They offered the captain if he would leave then and there and make certain of catchine the ship. I would like to make that S2.000, said dipt. Dean, but orders are not to leave (ill I get Albany mail, and I cannot assent.' They soe-jied uiujh disappniiltd. but said, It couldn't be and i hun they made theinselvcH ngre -able to everybody about. They paid uie ib.a S600 promised, gave me for the lost horses, und pave niy driver and men over 8100 each. We waiud un- til the stage canie in; the mails and passengers were tiausfcrred away went the boat in hurry. Then we ri'de leisurely back to Albany, it being a fine uighl but before we got there we met the uioun'od police furiously coining after our passengers, the dead noble. man's bogus sons. They were bank- robbers, and those two satchels they had contained over in and liank of England notes, (lie pro, cceds of a big Montreal robbery." Did they. catch (hem Catch 'eni No. When they started that niuht they talked with Capt Dean and offered him if ho would put them on board the outward, bound vesrel before he landed, ns would be lying in the channel. Mr Duan accepted, and just at day-light the steunmr lay along bide the vessel. and the time Capt. Dean got to his pier and the passengers invoke, the ship was sailing through the Narrows and away to England And the robbers were never heard "Never.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
