She was an orphan but she had never known the want of a Mother s love Aud Caie. Ifer Sweet baby i Ace had won the heart of the wealthy widow Omar who. With her Only son Frank lived at the substantial Homestead which had been in the Omar family for generations and which was surrounded by the Broad acres of As Fertile and valuable a farm As could be found in the West.

A regular duty of Thiau two Sisters was to Wash up the breakfast and Tea things each Clay to relieve their Mother who was burdened with Many cares but deprived herself of their assistance at other times so that they might attend school one March morning a heavy sleet covered the ground. After break fast As Eva was feeding the poultry Helen looked out of the window Aud noticed her sister s Happy countenance As she stood with her flock of White leg horns Aud chill gongs around her fhe tames eating crumbs from her hands. Although a pretty is ight it roused Helen s envy and her Cross spirit vented itself in scolding you Lazy b r out there playing with those chickens come right in to your Eva made no re continued to smile and scrape the dish she held in her hand.

A sur Geon was summoned and All that Iove and skill Conlu devise was clone for her Relief but for hours her sobering was in tense. The deplorable Accident finally resulted in a disease of hip by which poor Eva was rendered a cripple for life. You May est assured that Helen cured of scolding a terrible Nure certainly but a sure one. No one Ever heard a Cross word escape her lips again but often tears filled her eyes Aud her perfect Devotion to her injured sister was attested by Many delicate and Loving attentions.

Envelopes for correspondence first came into general use in England shortly after the establishment of the Penny Post in 1840, and not Long after Ward the custom was introduced in this country. Machinery for their Manu facture was patented by George Wilson in 1844, and by e. Hill and Warren de la Rue in a Young lady who was writing to a confidential Friend stated that she was not engaged but that she saw a Cloud above the horizon about As Large As a Man s hand. Was to follow until she she reached farm. It was a picturesque route the tradition ran bore i bad name. It was haunted the country Folk said. Any Way Dora glad when she had crossed it and struck into the Mouru Tunu ius path she Hill i Bor derail by sighing shadowy i i verified by bubbling rills which dashed in foam from the Overka Giny now no then subduing their to gentle rippling accompaniments to the Patter of Rhu Owall s hoofs along the Road so Dura the Gir was Lull of Romance and her heart was so fully attuned to nature s mysterious whispers that every sound carried us meaning to her at last she reached Hill farm. She received a warm Welcome from her Young friends Flora and Belle irk sine and it seemed that the specified time set for her visit passed on wings so soon came around the Day for her return. She was urged to Prilou her stay but knowing that she would be expected home1, and that her non arrival would cause anxiety she was Linn in her be uial to remain Over the appointed time. The hours wore on until nearly night fall however before she mounted the impatient snowball who had been Whin Nying to her Young mistress for several hours evidently thinking it a grand mistake to be tied to n. Post so Long in mute expectancy of a Start Home without having Tho slightest at Tention paid to her wants meanwhile. But at last All was in readiness for a Start Aud with Gay the girl started on her journey. Flora and her brother Henry accompanied her to the cud of the Mountain pass. Then they turned Back and touching snowball lightly with the whip Dora was soon earned like the wind. A Happy smile was on her red Rosy lips As she Piui cured almost unconsciously the words of a song. Just As she reached the swampy space which i have spoken of her began to slip and she Dis mounted to fix it. As she did so a Tali i inure Rose from its douching position beside the Roadside and crept silently up behind her. Draw ing a leather strap from his pocket to struck snowball a Savage blow with it. The frightened animal snorted reared wildly then started Oil on a mad run. In Auu Fher moment she was out of sight. Dora turned and saw a Malig Nant face the expression of Bale Ful eyes made her heart stand still., it belonged to a huge negro who had been discharged from the farm a few u c iks before for misconduct and who had gone away vowing vengence. Since that time a nightly watch had been kept upon Tho out buildings lest he Uii Erht make his threats Good by some act of incendiary so but no thought of personal danger had filtered their minds. Isow however As Dora met his yet triumphant look she Felt intuitively that her life Hung by a thread. She was alone with him and unprotected. Liven ing had already Hung her Dusky veil Over surrounding objects Aud the Moon whose Silver Crescent was showing its timid Light from behind a passing Cloud gave but a More dismal appearance to the spot with its weird atmosphere of ghostly they were near the haunted Pond.

With a Sivage yell Pedro followed forgetting his fear of the Specter in his at being outwitted by his intended victim he was rapidly gaining upon Dora who had nearly reached the mid d e of the Bridge when his foot caught a broken Plank and he fell head Long into the water Over the Low railing which was All that protected the sides of the rude Structure. Dora heard build in mumble and than the Dull heavy thud into the water she was too frightened to Stop her. Suddenly from out of the Woods on Thi other Side of the Bridge then came a of hoofs and something flashed into View.

They were together one1 evening at a reception in one of the wealthiest Man Sions of the cite when a i tar appeared in the person of a Niece of the hostess who Hud come from Massachusetts. She was handsome and reports in saying that she was As As she was pretty. Both of the medical student were smitten for the first time in their lives a feel came Between them. The natures of the two Young men were essentially Ditl Erent. One was Frank us the Day while the other was taciturn and reserved. Both paid court to the Judy but she soon manifested a Choice for Frank character and they be came engaged. The Defeated suitor seem i in to Bear his Issup ointment resignedly in time the lady went Home and the successful suitor wont abroad to Complete 1 is studies. While absent letters were received by the girl concerning her Lover v. Hich created the feeling that he was f use to her and finally one came in his own handwriting bidding her Farewell and adding that he was about to be mar Ned to a lady of rank. This proved in most a death blow to the girl but she sons rallied and sought in every Way to conceal the traces of grief. The Defeated suitor was at hand and again proffered his homage and dually in a lit of pique she Nisi ried had this been the i i de of the Story there would be no Romance it was not Long after the wed Ding before the Lover returned. He could not lie made to believe that the one he loved was false by nature. He reasoned that there was cause Tor change and like a sensible Man he commenced the task of unravelling the mystery. After much trouble he obtained an inter View with the wife in the absence of her husband and As an answer to his up braiding she showed the letter of renunciation. She was happier than she bad been in Many Days when she Learned that the letter was a forgery and that the Lover had always been True to her. She at once renounced her husband Aud soon Opportunity offered and she procured a divorce and was United to her first and Only love. The husband and wife settled Down in this City and Here he enjoyed a Long and successful career and when he died full of years and Honor he was sur rounded by his wife and family. The false Friend who by his wicked Machi nations had wrought so much sorrow re moved to Lansingburg where to became a physician of note.

There Aie three groups of stars which form a fancied resemblance to that utensil commonly known the dipper. One of these is in tin Constellation of inc Little Bear us Otic i in the Resit Bear Aud the third in Sagitta ring called from its situation on the Milky Way the lower Bear has attracted More than Ordinary attention from the fact that the pole Star or the Star nearest to the stationary Point in the Northern sky is the last in the handle of this dipper. The dipper of the great Bear is com posed of seven Bright stars. A line drawn from the last two stars in the bowl of the dipper in this Constellation passes nearly thou Ali the North stir hence these two stars have received the name of the As the pole Star is the guide if the Mariner on the trackless Ocean and the forlorn Hope of the bewildered trav Eler on the limitless Prairie these stars possess an interest which attaches to no other of the puds Winch reveals in the heavens.
