THE SÜMMER PARTY. We used to go to Mrs. Goodfellow's every summer when I waa a child. That la how 1 happened to be there when the summer party came up. You may know or you may not know that school teachers are the wildest of all summer boarders. You'd think thom sage maiden ladies In blue spectacles and brown veils, wouldn't you? Indeed, tbey are not This summer party came from New York, and tbey all taught school. Mrs. Ooodfellow was enough In herself for propriety, but there were plenty of other (oik there, especially an English lady—who thought it all "shocking." Mrs. Ooodfellow said tbat, according to American ideas, it was all right "I feel aa if they were all my children," said she. "My own are all married and away, and it 'most broke my heart to hev 'em go," she said. "And heving young folka makes it seem like old times. I like to see 'em kiting round and playing ball with a fish net—good exercise, poor dears—and I dunno as I don't like 'em best of all my boarders, they've got such nice appetites fer gingerbread and apple sarse, and milk and sweetmeats, and it's fun to see 'em sneak away to court, like my Liddy Jane and Ann Eliza used to. I hope I'll never get to feelin' as if [ didn't syropetbize with young folks, and want to see 'em serious and bate to hear 'em laugb, and not want 'em to sing and play onto tho melodeon, and carry on. Seems to me I sliill hope it's my time to go when it comes to that." No wonder Mrs. Ooodfellow, who acted up to her principles, was a general favorite. No wonder that when those young people asked each other, "Where shall wo go?" tho unanimous answer was, "To Mrs. Goodfellow's." There they all were—Eveline Brown and Fannie Green, Kate Grey and Rose White, Alice Black and Gladys Jamie—not an agly girl among them. And there wusTom Hope and Dick Breezo and Harry Asho and Rob Bunting an<l Will Roth and Charlie Garden, and it naii a jolly party, as one might expect, when every one of thoso young men had vowed to offer his hand, hem t and—no— 1 can't suy fortune—his hand, heart and salary to 0110 of those young ladies beforo vacation was over. Tom Hope, who was a bright eyed, black haired, jolly young fellow, who had no idea of waiting for what he wanted, contrived to get Eveline Brown into a forward car—they had all vowed to sit together—and be should bavn been nslmnied of himself, but be was not, anil pro[M>sod going down. There n-us 110 one to hear him except an old German, whom be felt sure could not understand English, so he told her tbat he loved her, and that be thought it would be twice as jolly if they could begin that vacation as engaged folk, and bo mid there was no girl on earth as pretty as kIi© was or as good, and when she said it was "sudden," hosaid. "Life is short." Then he asked her if be might put tbe ring he wore on his little finger on her first finger, and began to tuko off her glove, and when he bad pulled it entirely off he put the ring on and kissed it, because it was, as he declared, necessary to that in order that it might stay on. Then he said: "Oh, Ev vie I" mid she said, "Oh, Toml" And 011 'that the old German who "could not speak English" held out his hand and said: "Shako! I gingratulntes you, young peoples. Dot vos right Dot vos vot I did myself. Ven you vos young dot vos do goot times, ami I hope you got so many blessings as I got myself. Dot over dere vos mine wife and my nino children, and 1 dink dot vosgoct for a man in sixteen years—nine boys unt girls." And after all bo tijennt so well that, though Evvie blushed, she could not feel angry. That Is how Tom did it As for Dick Breeze, he waited until they had had tea, and then took Fannie Green out rowing. "Tom and Evvio aro engaged," said he. "It looks like it,"'said Fannie. , "Let us bo," said Dick. "You ought to ask ma and pa first," said Fannio. "Never heard of such a thing 1" said Dick. "A pretty mess I'd be in if they accepted me and you did not I" "Perhaps they might forbid it," said Fannio. "S'pose I'd care if they did if you said yesf said Youtig America. "Well, 111a and pa do generally do as I tell them," said Fannie. And thai was tho way be did it. Harry Ashe and Kate Grey lost their way in tho woods, and were found very hungry but happy. She told us that since they thought they might bo going to starve together they felt they could hear it if they were engaged. When the mad bull chased Rose White and Rob Buntiug saved ber, calling the bull's attention to himself by waving a red handkerchief, and really was a good deal hurt, that affair was settled, and Will Roth wrote a letter and curried it to tbe postofflce, and It was three days coming, and Alice Black's answer was a whole week getting to him. Still when it did come it waa an acceptance, and everything would have been perfect for everybody at last If It had not been for Gladys Jnune Gladys was a flirt, and we all said that the way she lielmved to Charlie Garden was simply shameful She tolil me one day that she felt that In getting up this summer party the boys had laid a trup for us, and that she, for one, would not fall into it She would not return home engaged. She was not sure, she said, that she liked Charlie enough—at all events, she wanted ber freedom—and she got' me to be with her all tbe time. 1 was only 14, but I felt tor Charlie Oar-den. Indeed I did, though ho once said—I heard him: "What do you see In that gawky little Barbara Prothero that you should always be going about arm in arm, or sitting somewhere embracing each other! I'm sure the child had rather be playing tag somewhere." Oh, well, 1 had my time afterward, but that Isn't in my story. 1 was in tbe way of hearing all the girls of the summer party said, for a good many of us bad beds in the big garret, and they all declared it was a sharaa Charles Garden was more in love than any one ever waa before, ami something ought to be dona Cue afternoon—it had got pt titty near ccbool tim« again—I came out of tho wood» with Gladys Jauue. She wa* laughing to think she had »lipped away from Charlie, and left blin to go to Lookoff bill by himself or to make an uncomfortable party of three for some of tbem, and suddenly we cam* upon tbe whole number sitting together in* row In the meadow, near tbe old welL It was a great stone well, with a chain, and it was not used. There was a better ona near the house—at least one with all the mod dern arrangement! There they all sat as solemn as owls. Gladys stood still and began to laugh. I laughed, too. ••What's the matterr »be asked. "You'd better not ask, Gladys," said Rose White. "No, she'd better not," said the chorus. Then tbey groaned together. "You will have to know at last. Miss Jaime," aid Barry Ashe. "So we might as well tell you at one«. Charlie Garden Q down tbe wea" "That's not particularly bad news for me," said Gladys, not believing them. "It's wom for bin. Hell get wet" "It's true, Gladys," said Fannie Green. And they all called out: "It is true." "It waa because yon left him in tbat way, I think," said Tom Hope. "Indeed, MiasJaune, he caught hold of the bucket chain and went down." "Why, there la the bucket on the grass," said th& "Yes," said Dick Breeze. "I thought be had been down a good while and drew it np; it1» empty." Gladys looked from one to the other. "This is very amusing to you, no doubt," •aid she. "1 want the truth." "He's down there, I assure you, 10« Jaune," said Will Both. "What have you done! Why dont you help him out!" asked Gladys. "Mrs, Ooodfellow baa sent over to the Perkins' place to see if they are done with bar ladder," said Will. "And when it comee"- "When it comes," cried Gladys—"oht" She ran to the well and bent over. "Mr. Garden." she called, "Mr. Oardenl" "Doesn't he answer!" cried Rose. "Charlie, speak, Charlio-ohi Charlie I" gasps Gladys. "He is drowned or insensibla" "May be bo doesn't hear; it's a very deep well," said Dick. "If he could go down on the bucket you other men can," said Gladys. "Why dont you—you, Charlie Roth—one of you! Ohl are you men, to sit here like thatP' "We won't let them go," cried the gtrla, each clinging to tbe arm of ber sweetheart Meanwhile Gladys danced about in an ecstasy of terror. "You are all cowards," she cried at last, adjusting the great bucket "I am going down myself." And actually she went The chain creaked slowly. We ail crept forward and crouched close beside the well brink. "Charlie," she was calling, "Charllel" Then she gave a squeal. When she got down some distance—awfully afraid of the water, but not yet coming to any—some one caught ber by the hand. "What Is that?" said she. "It is I," said a faint voice. "O, Charlie I" sho gasped. "You are not drowned? Are you hurt?" "Not too much to helpyou," said he. "Step out of the bucket It is safe here—a sort of ledge. Don't stir. Let me hold you. Why did not some of the men come down for me? How did you happen to come?" "I—I was not cowardly enough to let you die without help," said Gladys. "There goes the bucket." "Yes," said Charlie, "I should have held it Don't stir. Tho well is very deep, and I believe the water rises at sunset" "How horrible," said Gladya. "I don't think you will be left hero," said Charlie. "Tho ladder will come down in time for you." "Why not for both of usi" asked Gladys. "Too la to for me," said Charlie. "But I don't caro. I had as soon die. You don't enro for 1110. You were noble. You came to save mo, but you never would have married me I" "O, Charlie," said Gladys, "how can you know? Perhaps 1 would " "Say it again, Gladys," sighed Charlie. "I am going." "Don't go, Charlie I" said Gladys. "Live for me I" She was crying bitterly. "If 1 could live would you marry me!" sighed Charlie. "Let me rest my head on your arm. There, kiss me," She did it "1 may have only a few moments to live," said Charlie, "but will you not let me feisl that we are engaged for that brief timer' "Oh, yos, yest I always liked you, Charlie; I only meant to toaso you," said Gladys "Oh, where are you hurt/ What can I do! Yes, I am yours. Oh, Chin lie; where is tbe pain?" "In my heart," said Charlie. "Kiss me." She kissed him. "I am a little better," he said. "Are we really engaged, Gladys! I have taken that riug from my watch chain, Gladys—my mother's, you know. Will you wear it?" "Yea," siiid Gladys. She was sobbing as sho slipped it upoii her finger. "Don't die, Charlie," said she, "I will never tease you again; 1 will never pretend I do uotloveyoul It was all pretense. Live, Charlie, for my sake!" "All right, Gladys," said Charlie, and on the instant he jumped to his feet, embraced her twice, and kissed her twenty times. "This well is ouly ten feet deep, and has been dry fifteen years," said be. "Boys, let down the ladder; she has accepted mo I" They had all been sitting on tho ladder to bide it, and now the brim of the well waa filled with laughing faces, and shouts of laughter came down with the ladder. "Did you suppose," said Fannie Green, as she held out her arms to Gladys, when she had jumped from tbe well brink to the meadow grass, "that you were to bo the only one to go homo without being engaged? And is It not nice, after all?" Well, Gladys forgave them, and, on the whole, I think they have mado the happiest married pair of all that sumim r party—I do indeed.—Mary Kyle Dallas in tho Fireside Companion. A writer in The United Sorvico Magazine says that the stones used for scrubbing the decks of ships aro called "holy stones" because tbe work was generally dono on Sunday. But a writer in The Churchman says that they were so called because those who used them had to go down on their knocs to do their work. Lieut. Schwatka estimates tho number of living cliff dwellers ho has discovered in southern Chihuahua at from 8,000 to 12,000. They are very wild aud shy, and upon the approach of white people fly to their caves or cliffs by notched sticks placed against the face of tho cliffs if too steep, although they ascend vertical stone faces if there are the sligbtert crevices for the fingers and toes. A French woman Invented one of the most original inotbodsof dealing with a refractory child ever ruvealed to tho public. She fastened on tho hat of her 8-year-old daughter, who had been naughty, a placard inscribed with tho words, "Mademoiselle is a thief and a liar," and walked hor through tho streets. It took a policeman to rescuo the lady from the mobbing of an indignant crowd. A writer in The Canada Presbyterian maintains that "it is not going too far to say that if some ministers now in their graves had beard during their lives Iho good things spoken of thein after they were dead, they might not have died. The help given them by a little kindness might have kept them alive and in good working condition a few years longer." Who ia responsible for tlio misuse of the word "whiskers" in America? Tho word is today almost universally used instead of beard. Whiskers, correctly spoakiug, are only that portion of a man's facial hair which is worn on either side of his face, while tbe rest is shaven clean. A man with full beard canuot be said to wear whiskers. As the very name indicates, the appendages are fragments of a beard. The American barber has almost lost the art of trimming beards, they aro now so little worn in this country. One of the cannon used by tho American colonists in 17(13 in defending their settlements from tho attacks of the Iudian chief Pontiac is imbedded in the foundation walls of the residence of J. Samuel Krause, of Bethlehem, Pa., where if wus placed by the officers of the Moravian church to prevent youug America from firing it off on liberty days. Professor Lankestcr proposes, in Nature, that this uew word, "Mithrldatiem," be admitted to the scientific vocabulary, to signify that immunity from the effects of a poison which is induced by the administration of gradually increased doses. Tho selection of the word has reference to tho fable concerning Mithridates, king of Pontus, that he becam* so charged with tbo poisons bo experimented with, that he ob'b^ned an immunity from them all AN INTERESTING LETTO From Arthur A. Brigham. Summit or Bhuubxtsd Mt.; ». Hokkaido, Jam*. f- Dkab Messrs. Editors ¡—Months age I promised yon a letter, and it is full time 1 fulfilled my promise. Just • week ago we started on a trip, or a bear hunt, aa yen please. It baa beeu a bare hunt thus far, at any rate. Yesterday noon we reached the top of 8hiribi.-tsu Mountain, an extinct voK caiio of 7,000 feet altitude, nuking only second of tbe numberless mountains of the island of Yezo. If you wish to tee mountains, or climb them, this is the place to start tor. Tbey aro filled in here as thickly as w«v«a on a stormy sea. It is very difficult fct flnda level place between them large enough to get a good start op one. Well, we started, M I said, seven days ago. Oar party at < numbered three, including myoolle is a Canadlan by birth, and a mtOcr* _ ing, and eating ice cream; a Japanese gentleman, n graduate of the Sapporo AgriOoltai^ > nl College, and thirdly, your old friend* «M* "Granger." I had been off on several trip« with my wife and youug Beuben, but tbey remained at home this time. We chartered a busha for tbe first two days of our Journey. A basba is the name for a wheeled vehicle here, and this was a four-wheeled, heavy, covered wagon. By dint of considerable hard bumping we made over forty miles the -fiisc day, and this brought us to the fishing village of Tomakomar, on the coast, and our first "duty, as well as pleasure," was to take u plunge in tbe surf. The week before we hnd token a bath in the billows of the Japan Sja at Isbkari, on the opposide of the Island. The next morning our basha rolled along a quite smooth beach road for miles, bordering tho Pacific Ocean. At about 10 a. m., we reached Neborobetsu. Here we went off on a kind of side issue tor variety. In other words we slung our saddles upon pack horses, or rather ponies, and "aoooted" over the nearest mountdln and down through tbe bush and bamboo grass to a river murky with sulphur compounds. Then up along the river to the "Sulphur Springs." Oh, yts, we hu ve sulphur springs here, and hot ones, too, ¡is my colleague can testify. This is quite a "resort." Leaving our "foaming steeds" at the Japanese hotel, we "footed it" up to tbe crater oC an old volcano. Here we wan-dered about, saw the boiling springs and the steaming Inko, and on our return from the upper springs my colleague discovered a new hot spring. Otherwise stated, he "got bis loot in it," or, to me a-more classical expression, and a fuvorite expression with the discoverer of this spring, he "got there with both fd-t," and he swore he "touched bottom." The discoverer of this to be famous new hot spring is a very lively fellow usually, but I never saw anything yet to beat tbe liveliness with which he made for land after sounding that spring. Fortunately he was content with a brief exploration of the wonderful qualities of this spring, and a few blisters were the only bad result We r»-turned after a good hot bath in ti houte lower down, cantered back hikI : .<>•!; basiia again, reaching Mororan bef '¡w This is a picturesque place on the 1 -mountain, and one of the points ;<>r j! , and departure for the steamer which Tuns across Volcano Bay, on the otherwise overland route between Hakodate and Sapporo. Hero we stopped over night in a Japanese hotel, and made the acquaintance of a number of fresh fl?as. Next morning saw us "sailing over the water" in a native sail boat for Monibetsu, only the wind gave out after sending us along half tbe way. Then our enterprising ciptain went on shore, and by a long ropo attached to tbe mainmast's top, towed us the rest of the way, aided by two scullers at the stern of the craft Arrived at Monibetsu, where there is a large I'OJl sugar factory, we went to a hotel where t'.n y have several up-stairs "foreign" rooms and more "native" flea& Pretty soon I got another sea batb, while my colleague nursed his blisters on shore. Next day we hunted in tho vicinity for bears, on horseback, that is, to say, we were on horseback hunting for beni-8. I m ike this specific mention in order that the Enterprise may not be liable to a case of libel for printing anything wblch would upi>ear to Intimate that the bears of tho Hokkaido indulge in the pastime of horseback riding. Still you may safely state that the bears sometimes (lino on horseflesh, and 1 can testify that I have seen one bear that was that ki ul of a. diner. He was safely dead, howover, when I interviewed him. No bears a 11> -•arcd to glndden our sight that day, however. Oil? You think bears are terrible creatures, perhaps, but I tell you they are terrible shy ubout being interviewed even by a "sjiecial foreign correspondent" of the Ew-TERriusE. The next move of the party was in pack horses with Aiuu guides, aimidg for this mountain. The Ainu are the abOriginees of the country, and skillful in woodcraft Borne of them are handsome specimens of humanity. After a long ride through the wilds, stopping for a rest at a large, beautiful lake, and taking a double swim in its clear waters, and sleeping in a frontier farm house, whero the fleas were thicker than spears of gi'as-s in a haystack, and then separating from our Japanese friend, who had been a very very jovial and pleasant fellow-traveler, we came part way up this high eminence, over a dry water course. Starting early in the morning we toiled np the water course. I thought I had climbled mountains In the old Bay State, but bless you, they were only ant bills compared with tbis sky piercer. "Jordan am a hard road to travel," kept earning to my lips, but I couldn't mention it I had to s ve my brealb for the next upward step, I had about thirty pounds to carry, including rifle, and the Ainu guides were much more heavily loaded. We had to carry extra clothing, food and water. Our paoks strangely enough doubled,- then quadrupled, finally sevcnteentripled in weight At times as we looked back or rather down, it seemed as if the mountain side curved under and the old volcano was about to tip over backwards. It took seven hours of scrabbling to reach the top edge of tbe crater, where I am now scribbling tbis epistle to the EnTbbpiusk on the day after the climb. We look down into the crater as into a huge bowl hundreds of feet deep. It was in this crater tbat my colleague shot three bears but year, but the "critters" are away visiting tbis year, and have left only their tracka. It to [my enough for tbe hard climb to look out ugKiu the scene« beyond us and to watch the clouds at play about us. On the east are visible tbe waters of the great PaeiSe and Volcano Bay, and on the west is tbe Japan Sea, and all around us are mountains, forests, and streams, with tbe clouds frisking about or piling up in fantastic heaps. And the sunset last night was sublime. To-day tbe clouds are playing with the summit of our mountain, and "we are all surrounded." Remember us to all our friends. It I eeold clasp bands ncrosa ocean and continent I would give you tbe grip for all tbe patrons of the Bay Slate. Yours, Abthch A. BbiobaK.
