A GIRL'S DIARY, It was raining dismally, and I stood watching tbe drops fall wildly down, splashing against the window aa they came. A despondent face I had, as I stood there thinking. Oh, tbe tiresome, dreary day I Oh, tor something to paasaway tbe timet I turned and went out of the library and up the broad staircase. We lived in an old house on the outskirts of the city. This old place had been in possession of the family for over a century now. A weather beaten old rookery it was, but withal tbe most delightful plaoe to live in, with its broad halls, great winding staircase, and n perfect wonder of a garret extending the whole length of the house. It was a wonder in more ways than one. Old presses and old trunks were stowed away against tho walls, full of relics and fineries of the departed Huntingdon! Old books and manuscripts were piled on queer old chairs and tables, and all sorts of odd, interesting things were to be found there. Toward this plaoe I wended my way that rainy morning. Surely, thought I, In the garret I shall find something to amuse tue; It has never failed me yet Up I went till I came to tbe door. 1 stood on the threshold a moment. Such a ghostly old place it seemed, with its shadowy corners, and the wild rain without knocking at tbe windows! For a second 1 stood there, half afraid to enter, then, with a laugh at my foolishness, walked boldly in. 1 (Hiked around among tbe old chests for ^ while, and presently dragged forth triumphantly to the light a little escritoire. Such ft pretty oue it was, a|l inlaid with mother of pearl, with an ebony lid. The legs were slender and spindling, and In tbe key bole was a titty, »urn, golden key, a faded blue ribbon hanging from it. I turned the key excitedly. It moved just a little bard, as if not likiug to disclose the secrets within. ' The iid 0|iened and showed numerous little cubby holes and drawers which were locked, but which I found would open with the same key. By the side of a tiny inkstand lay a dainty penholder with tbe Initials "D. H. H." cut in it I took the key and eagerly opened tho first drawer. A book with a golden clasp and the same initiuls on the cover lay therein. ] Opened it excitedly—I think without feeling that I might be doing wrong. My eyes fell on tbe first page, on whlcb was written, in a man's band: "To my little daughter." And then, uuderneatb it, in a delicate, childish baud, in faded ink, tbe words: "Tho private thoughts and reminiscences of Dorothy Helen Huntingdon," and below, the da to: Dec. 25, 1730.—Wednesday. I have wanted a diary ever so long in my thoughts, but I did uot toll father till be did say to me yesterday: "Well, dear, what will you have on Christmas duy I" "A diary, father, please," said I (only 1 said dairy. I think I rather got it mixed up with butter and eggs and cheese). And father did laugh so, and say: "Whatl my little girl turn duirymuidi!" •'Nay, dear father, a book I mean," and 1 did feel so foolish at my making Buch ml» takusi—a gfrl of twcl ye years—on Christmas day. I turned my face away, well nigh crying, "Why, what's this!" said father, and he raised my head. "I will bring thee twenty books, but cry not, dear!" "Nay, father, it is not that, but because ] do make 6ucb foolish mistukes." And father, quite gravely, with all tbe laughter gone from his face, took my hand in his and did say to mo that this was nothing, only natural that I should make some little mistakes; but it was tho great mistakes that we q)\)st all guard against omj pray against. So this morning | found my diary on toy pillow when I woko, and father bad put within it, "To my little daughter," and beneath it I wrote, as you see above, "Th-> Private Thoughts and Reminiscences of Dorothy Helen Huntingdon." And 1 wUl write In It every day till next Christm as if I be spared. Doc. 20, 1730.—Thursday. I have been greatly angered this day and very wicked. Madame did say to me this morning: "Tell mo, ma cbere, tq French, that I am beautiful 1" But It did seom to me very queer, for uiadanie (though I mean nothing uuseemly, but quite tho truth) is not beautiful. She is quite yellow, tall and thin, and with a hooked noae. So I did say nothing but— Ah I when 1 think of it now I blush for shame at my wickedness—but I laughed. And mad-ame did rise up with a most awful look and swept from the room. Then I did feel the blood rising to my face, and my heart seemed like to cboko me, and I did leave my chair and go to father's room. But the door was closed, and it did seem to me that everything would now be closed against wicked me. Then I did sit me down outside the door and put my head into my lap so that I would not disturb father writing within. But soon it did soem I could not keep tny heart down longer, it choked me so, and father, bearing a sound, came out and found me. And father brought me In, and 1 did tell him all, and nothing said be but, "Little daughter, this is one of the small mistakes that sometimes cause great sorrows." And he did smooth my hair and take me to ma-dame to ask for pardon, which most graciously she granted. And I now put tbTs down so that 1 may never, never forget that the small mistakes do sometimes make great sorrows. Dec. 27, 1730.—Friday. Father took me to the stables today, and there showed me a most beautiful pony, black as night, and with a soft silken mane and tail. And father did seat me on ber and sayi "I bought this for a friend of mine, a little girL" I think I am most wicked, ever angry and jealous. And I did fool so envious, for I did want tho pony so much myself, and nothing did I say but, "I am very glad for tbe little girl; I hope she may like it." At tluit father did laugh outright and sayt "The little maid is not far away; mayhap you know hurl" And then of a sudden it did flush across me that the little girl was my very self, and I did speak out quite boldly and say: "Oh, •ir, la It mine!" And father laughingly did say; "Yes, little friend, it U a Tate Christmas gift and an early Mew Year one What will you call herf "Gypsy, dear father," said I; and I was so glad that I knew not what to da So I did think me what could I give father in returu, and I did go to the kitchen and ask cook if she would kindly allow tue to make a pie for father. And I did niako a most beautiful one, albeit I did let it fail upon the floor in carrying it to tho pautry. But I dusted it off quite cleanly, ami father was greatly pleased. I took u lesnon in ridina. and fa'her did (lake me a present of a beautiful gold handled whip that did belong to my mother. Dec. 28, 1730.—Saturday. I rode forth upon my dear Gypsy this morning with father. It was beautif uL My Cousin Patience comes this day. 1 am very glad, for Patience is my favorite cousin. Father did toll me that ber mother was my dear mother's sister. Patience has hair that shines gold like In the sun and her eyes are blue as speedwells. She bath some years more than I, being Da She doth ride like the wind on a milk white steed, and she hath a most beautiful habit of green velvet, trimmed with silver lace. "But you will not bare Patience long, may haps," said father. "I think some oue is going to tako ber away." "Nay, dear father," said I; for it grieved | me sorely to think any one should come and take my'dear Patienoê away. "It cannot be true." But father did laugh teaslngly, and did gooff and leave me quite miserable to think that after all it might be true. Dec. SO, 1730. — Sunday. Patience has oomel I was standing on thé staircase last evening when I heard the coach wheels, and in a moment there was my dear at the door, looking so beautiful! But with her was a gentleman, so tall and straight, but with such a handsome face, and eyes all a laughing, that somehow I was not* bit afraid till it came to me that he might be the one who would take my Patience from me. Then 1 did go up to him right boldly, and when he did take my hand, said, "Are you to take my Patience away!" And he did laugh and say, "If thy Patience wilt but come with me.".. And she, with a most beautiful red all over her face, did take me in ber arms and kiss me. But I feel much better aboutit now, for Patience did tell me she would often oome and see me. We went to church this day. I wore my new pelisse trimmed with fur that Cousin Patience brought me. I greatly fear I did think moroof that than of the sermon; but lam truly penitent, and wore my oldest pelisse afterward to mortify my vanity. Dec. 80, 1730.— Monday. I have told my dear about the diary and shown it to her. Not the inside yët, but I did say to her, "When I am with my mother, then. Patience, you must have my book and read it." And Patience smiled, and ber eyes seemed so bright and sparkling that methought there were - tears in them, and she said, "Sweetheart, I thank thee: but may the time be far away." Last night I did dream of my mother, Methought I saw her holding out her arms to me, with a smile, and the bright angels round about her were smiling also, and I thought I did start to go to her, but bearing a cry, 1 turned back and saw my father weeping, his face upon his hands, and I woke. I have begun to ride with my Patience and the captain. Father comes also at times. The captain is part of his name—he who came (o take Patience. We bave fine times, and it doth soem I like him every day the more. But the great secret is, and 1 tell it to you, for you will never say aught about it, my dear is to be taken away, married, on New Year's day, Margery says. That Is why Patience camo here, and I never knew it until last night, and she told mo. Father wished it bo, and everything is to bo bo beautiful. I did seo the lace, the veil, Patience is to wear upon her head, and it Is to float downward o'er ber dresa Margery did tell mo people always give presents to those who are to be married. And I did think mo what I could give to my dear. So I told father, and be askod mo if I had thought of anything. Then I showed him a little ring that he had given me, that was my mother's—a beautiful gold ring with a circlet of ikwIs. And father did say to me: "My dear, wilt thou part with thatf' and his face looked stern and sad. Then I did put my arms round his nock and say: "To none other but my Patience, for she will love it well, and I give It as the best I have." And father did Us* me and say, as though speaking to himself: "Thy mother's self, thy mother's self." And Patience coming into the room, I placed the riug upon her finger. Jan. 1, 1731.—Wednesday. I never, never thought it would happen. I feel much stronger now, and will tell all about it It was yesterday; my dear and the captain and I did go out riding. We rode along right gayly for a time (Margery is saying not to write more, but 1 say to her that i must tell you all), and then somehow Gypsy did slip and fall and threw me on the ground, and when growing frightened and trying to rise, methinks she hurt me in the side. But she did not mean it I think I forgot everything for a time, then, and only remembered my dear's white face and Gypsy putting her pretty bead down, and then I must have gouo to sleep. Then I did And myself upon my bed at homo, with my dear father sitting by me. But his face was fallen upon his hands, so I put out my hand softly, and it did almost fall, so heavy It was, and laid it on his arm. And father, quickly raising bis bead, did cry out, "Dorothy!" And said I, "Father, dear, it was not Gypsy's fault"—for I did think me tbey might blame my pretty Gypsy. My head doth feel so queerly uow. Here comes my dear and the captain. "Father"- My eyes were so blurred with tears that I oould scarcely seo tbe faded, trembling writing. Once more they fell upon the yellow page where, underneath, was written: "My little Dorothy I She died this morning. The sunshine of tho new year falls softly In npon her as she lies asleep. Good-byl dear; I have read tbe gentle story through, and so I close the book." The rain that had been falling wildly, wept softly now. The branches of the dead tree swept against the window, and my tears fell on the tender story of a young life, while the darkening shndows filled the room.—Annie R. Keyes in Frank Leslie. Improved Electric Motor». Tho improved electric motor which has been brought forward by a Cincinnati inventor, and for which various advantages have been claimed over all others, has been subjected to repeated oxhibitory tests, and it would appear has given very satisfactory evidence of its value. This motor, according to all accounts, possesses a method of speed regulation whlcb fulfills in a remarkable degree the great desideratum of simplicity, as well as other desirable qualities. The arrangement consist» of two jieculiorly constructed coils of wire suitably placed in connection with a centrifugal governor, driven from the armature shaft by moans of a rubber belt designed especially for the purpose, and the mechanism if such thut, should the governor belt break or fly off, the arms will collapse and close, and the motor be immediately stopped.—New York Telegram. On Mount Victoria. 8ir William McGregor, governor of New Guinea, has recently made the ascent of Mount Victoria, 13,121 feet high, the highest peak of tho Owen Stanley range. On the summit daisies, buttercups, forget-mo-nots, grasses nnd heather were growing, and larks were seen. Icicles and white frosts were met with. The country traversed by tho party was very mountainous. Natives were met with only on two occasions. Tbey were stout, well built men, with short legs. No women were seen. They were destitute of warlike implements. Many new plants and birds were discovered and one animal resembling a bear, but with a long tail. Its extreme length hyi feet 0 inches, tbe tail being 18 Inches long.— Chicago Herald. Roman Bride's Toilet.
