Here no one conld probe tïie discovery BO new to herself—to trace the Bcarlet blush which, seemed so olten to bum her cheek, until she wondered that it did not leave its brand.  She had been home six weeks, and twice Oscar Dering had. ridden 5ver to see her, but she had always denied her-self to him on some household pretext, until one morning he overtook her in the road.

TONES A FARNUmT^ Attorneys and " Oounselorb at Law, Wellsville, N. i'.  Lillian Ames stood'lieaning against the casement of an open window leading on to a sloping lawn, at whose base flowed a sunny, rippling stream of water.  It was one of England's fairest scenes on which her eyes rested, and she was one of England's fairest daughters. Even.at this moment, spite of the fact that lier brow is gathered in a frown,  ! A few bold spirits have declared there wás little soul in the face; but the large hazle eyes could melt or flash at will; the dark lashes'shaded a cheek w^ite as parían marble, with rarely even a touch of color upon its velvety surface, and the lithe, graceful ligureeven imconsciously assumed new grace in each unstudied poise, until one forgot the question of Boul in its perfect outward flesh-and-blood.tabernacle.  Neai- her, reclining on a low easy-chair, sat a young girl of about her own age. At first glance the exquisite soul-loveliness of her face paled In Miss Ames' more brilliant beauty, but there were more to love its possessor, and fewer to envy her. Something like indignation was in her voice, as she addressed ber friend.  " I cannot believe that you mean it, Líüím," shé said. " You have been engaged to Oicar Dering a year, and how you can say so carelessly that your en-^jageme^it shall be^jroken—"  " Beg pardon!" mterrupted the other, in low, ironical tones. " I have not yet ^een engaged to Oscar Dering twenty-four hours. It was to Lord Oscar Dering I gave my pledge."  "Oh, but, Lillian, because he has lost title and estate must he also lose the woman of his love? Think a minute. You surely will not give him up easily?"  ONES, WM. F.—Attorney and Counselor at ÎAw, Wellsville, N. Y.  SO  " I did not mean to pity you," she replied.  ■ And then the conversation drifted into other channels.  " Oh, if Lillian had not spoken of the heart caught in the rebound!" she thought, when week after week Oscar Dering wo«jld find his way to the rectory garden, or the rectory parlor, to spend long hours with its fair young mistress. '  She understood so well why he came, because now and then Lillian's name drifted into thè idle talk, and because, as ho grew stronger, he dared speak of her and the love he had borne her. It was a mingled pain and pleasure to listen. If only she had not iCarned her own heart, the pain would have been less. But she was destined to leam it more fatally, yet, as, one morning, strolling through the woods together, the sharp report of a hunter's gun close beside them startled them both. The next nstant her companion sank white and senseless on the sw^rd beside her, while the affrighted hunter, whose mistimed charge had entered his arm, hastened forward. i- ; - ---------------  jsring assistance, quickly!" exclaimed Edith, while she raised the heavy head to her lap. "Oscar, speaft to me!" she moaned. "Oscar! Oscar!"  Over and over again she repeated his name in the same accents of despairing love, tmtil they seemed to force their way into the life-pulses of his being, and rouse them to activity.  He opened his eyes with a half wandering look, as though delirium must have overtaken him.  At this"^ instant the hunter returned with assistance, and a half hour later the wounded man had been borne to the rectory, the wound dressed, and the knowledge given that it was merely a fl^h hurt, painful but not dangerous ; yet his recovery was a tedious affair.  He grew moody Md abstracted. It gave him more time to think of Lillian and his loss, Edith thought, even while she wondered why his eyes followed her with such a strange, questioning look. Once she entered his room with some freshly cut flowers in her hand.  " Where shall I put them, Mr. Der-.ing?" she questioned.  " Mr. Dering?" he answered. " Did I not once hear you call me Oscar? Or was it a sweet fancywafted from dreamland«"'  Again the crimson tide dyed her face.  " Don't!" she said, as though he had hurt her, and hastened from the room,  answred, gravely, looking quietly but rarprisedlyinto the bemrti» falfiice beside bim.  "Can one ever retrieve a mistdie." she asked, "when one ^dsitontf" „  I do not kiiow,** he replied, toyfog with an exquisi^ rose beside him, as he continued: "Can o&e cause the rose blighted in midsummer to bloom again in the firosts of winterP"  She knew then what he meant^ and also knew that it was too late to retrieve the past.  i^dealing ^ simil^Vshe exclaimed, hiding her wound ^th a proMsmiie., "Perhaps it ia the place.  i^ns retura to^or "ftuests« f Ar hour later Oscar Deriiigled^gs Loring to the same spot.

The time required for the earth to pass around and return to the place from which it started is called a solar or sun year—the year made by the heavenly bodies. In olden times men did not know that the earth moved around the sun. If &ere was any moving it was done by the sun.they thought; andit did seeni to move. To this day we all etay the sun rises and sets, l^ow-ing so little about the revolutions of the earth, it Wais very hard for men to arrange the divisions of time so tl^at they would correspond with the sola« year. The civil year is the one made by man, and, like many human things, it was at first very imperfect—that is, the civil year and solar year did not corr^ipond very closely.

I am twenty-one —no longer a girl of an age to live upon sentimentalism, but to look upon the every-day realities of life. When I en.-gaged myself to Lord Dering, I was the subject of congratulation 'among all my friends. Now that the cousin who was supposed to be dead crops into life in some remote portion of the globe, and that Oscar insists upon renouncing the property in his behalf without even a struggle, ( am not content to let these same oongratulaàons lapse into pity.'"  " ph, Lillian, do you think any one could pity you for possessing so royal a gift as the love of such a man? Tnink better of it, dear, I know you care for him. Do not so lightly renounce your life's liapp^ess!"  " You plead h's cause eloquently, iny dear.

A grand ball was to be given at Ames Court, at which Lillian insisted that Edith should be present. The invalid was fully recovered now, and he, too, was summoned to the feast.  Miss Ames had pltmged into consti^t gaiety since the breaking of her engagement to Oscar Dering, but it all had failed to fill the empty place in her heart.  Oni the evening of her ball, she picked up the paper sent down by the afternoon's mail from London. Glancing idly over its pages, she suddenly stirted at seeing the name of the man to whom she so lately bad been betrothfd.  It was a published decision. oLlha court, that, owing to some disability, the title could not descend to Oscar Der-Ing's cousin, but, together with the states, must remain in his possession.  He was, then. Lord Dering still. Fool that^e had beMÎrBut the decision ha been n^ade public but a few hours. He would never dream ot the accident which had brought it to her knowledge. Tonight, while he still thought h$r in ignorance, she must win him back.  Never had she« been more capricious with her toilet; never Lad she looked more ravishingly lovely ttian when she descended to reoeive her guests;  It was late wlien he entered the spacious drawing-rooms.  " I have been waiting ;for you," she said, in her sweetest; lowest tones. " Yon honored me,,tôogreatly. Mi»  civil year came in midsumnier. To use an illustration, we will have two cog wheels that work into each other. If both wheels are in all r^pects alike, the places will always come together at each revolution; but suppose one wheel is a trifle smaller than the other, the wheel representing the civil year smaller than the one of the solar year, then any points once together will keep getting further apart. This was just the trouble between man's year and the natural year. Ciesar rearranged the civil year In 46 before Christ, and introduced the system having, three years of '365 days and then one of 366—the additional day being giving to February. The soliar year is 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 59^ seconds, so that Ceesar's year of 365^ days, averaging the four, is about eleven minutes too long. The point Is to get these two years, the year of the heavens which we cannot alter, and the year of the alm^acs, to agree^ Matters went on as they had been started by Jtilius CcBsar, with a loss of eleven minutes i year, until 1582, over 1,600 years, when It became evident that the little yearly loss was too great and must be remedied. How could this be done, was the question. At this time a pope took the matter up—it was a time when popes had great temporal power— and decreed that the fifth of October be called the I5th and all jthe intervpinintt daya tn he can-  celed. This only set matters right for the time being, but the same pope Gregory XIII., made it a rule that the century years not divisible by eight be not leap years, according to the new rule. This omits tbree leap years in every400years. With this arrangement ihe civil and solar years almost coincide, the solar exceeding by only twenty-two and onerquarter seconds, or a day in about 4,000 years—a matter too small to need attention.  Those who-have followed us through and we fear it lias been ratherdry-4w the younger readers, will see that it has been quite a hard matter to bring things around straight. The leap ye^r comes from the facttliat there is a firactionof a day in the solar year wMch it wovld not be convenient to have in the civil, sor-we put^ enough ^-the fractions gether to make a day, and have the extra one on the leap year, o t v^ fourth year. - - -  meet ~ him agtun.

If too^ iittle is removed the grafts will be shaded and cramped in their growth and the labpr of grafcing well nigh lost. When the trees are large, it is necessary to know what limbs to cut away for grafting, how many it is desirable to grafc, and of What size. To make the scions grow, it ia necessary to manipulate the process very sklUfully.so that the ascending sap will enter the bark of the scion and start it into life, The wax must be made so as to jprotect the wj^nded limb, and remain till the scion is well started in Its new growth. Grafting wax may be made by melting together four pounds of common rosin, two pounds of beeswax and one pound of tallow.

Atlast they reached the walls and attempted to scale them by ladders, but were hurled back by the Textms.

On the twenty.firat of April following the oiassacre at San Antonio, the battle of San Jacinto was fought. In this last struggle , for liberty the Texans wtnt into battle shouting as a war cry "Remember the Alamo." The Mexi cans were defeated, Santa Anna was captured, and Texan independence secured. From 1836 to 1845 Texas was anindependent republic, having, during the time', four presidents. In 1845 this " Ion" star republic " was added to our constellation of States.  tNflk and Lime Water.  Milk and.lime water are now frequently prescribed by physicians in cases of dyspepsia and weakness of the stom ach, and in some cases are said to prove very beneficial. Many persons who think good bread and milk a great luxury, frcquentlyJÈesitate to eat it for the reason that the milk will not digest readily ; sourness of the stomach will often follow. But expeiience proves says the Journal of Materia Medica, that lime water and milk are not only fc od and medicine at an earîy^period of life, but also at a later, when, as In case of Infants, the functions of digestion and assimilation are feeble and easily per-vorted.

When twenty-ftee ^|ips-have been through the cross^cutter, of course each of the ten receiving pans contains tiè0nty'five cards, and the cylinder about which they are arranged is ^^urhed a notch, always leaving a new set of pans to be filled, while the packers continue to bind up. the packages.

His wife replied, " Irf the pantry, on the second shelf,"  Down he went, found the cabbage,-gotout the oil, mustard and vinegar, cut up the cabbage, dressed 'it to his taste i^d aie it all.  In ihe i^rning lus wife noticed the pl^ of cibbago where she had put it the day before, and turning to her "Deiir .George" innocently asked why he did not eat the cabbage. ^  The Kam'chadales keep special dogs for the purpose of consuming their dead. The Latookns, of Zanzibar, bury their dead who die from disease or old age, but make it a rule to leave those slain in battle to be devoured by wild beasts where they lie. The Parsecs bring their dead to certair. roond, towers, called towers of silence, to be eaten by Vul-tures. Which make those towers iheir dwelling places. The Moors lay the bodies of the dead on the grouiidrand piling prickly thorns on them to keep off beasts, leave them to decay. The ancient Colchians tuspended the i.orjps^s of men in trees, but the^r women they buried. The Gonds and Bhils of India, bum their men but bury their women.
