All in what it Clabe Don Ark. Hilda s rival. Then you will not help said Geoffrey Brandon. Hilda Del vere curled her Beautiful lip scornfully. Here was a Royal Type of Beauty and it was no wonder men loved her so madly. Geoffrey Brandon eyed her narrowly and there crept Over his handsome face look of admiration which Tho girl was not slow to perceive Aud the disdainful curve of hoi perfect lip rounded into a sunny smile As she said but Why should we quarrel about liar Cousin Geoffrey buffering or not she is As haughty in her Low Posi Tion As she was when she was the mis Tress of half a million and i do not care to encounter her insolent Pride again even at your special request my Friend no doubt some of her Many admirers will assist her so Why should i trouble Hilda de Yere loved Tho Noble Man before her with All Tho Power she possessed of Loving anything beyond her self and had Sho known How her Hist cruel words struck to his heart she would have left them a uttered. She saw she had made a mistake when he said coldly a you choose. I came to you with her Story of distress for i thought you Lead a tender heart and i Felt i had borne claims on my Cousin s generosity i was pleading the cause of so old and tried a Friend of hers As Christine Verne. I see my error and will not detain you he bowed and was about to with draw but Hilda with a mighty Effort curbed her rising anger and hastening after him Laid one exquisite hand on his Arm and said pleadingly with Lovely eyes misty with tears you Are angry with me Geoffrey. What will become of me without your love Aud such a perfect picture As Sho made with her Blue velvet dress sweeping around her Graceful form and her Beautiful face like a grieved child a raised to his. She knew her Power and was not sur prised at the softening expression in his eyes As lie answered i am More grieved than you loved Christine yer no once and were untiring in your offers of Friend ship when she had but slight need of them. Now when she is in poverty and disgrace through no fault of her own and you have in your Power to Aid her you refuse. Why will you not give her this position of governess for your Little Sisters when you know How Noble and worthy she is Cousin Hilda re consider your decision and for my Sake give her the Aid one True woman has Tho right to expect from his handsome eyes wore a look of Earnest pleading which Hilda would have found it hard to resist had her sympathy been asked for any other per son than Christine Verne. But As it a hard determined look settled Over her face obliterating All its lines of soft Beauty As she listened to the thrill of tenderness in his voice. She had humbled herself to him and this was the hear him plead All Tho eloquence to possessed the cause of the Ono woman she hated Tho Ono rival she feared and in whose downfall Sun triumphed. If you Force the truth from me Geoffrey hero it is i believe Chris Tine yer no is As vile As her miserable Uncle name is now the talk of the town. I would no More have her in my House than i would the Meriest in the Street. If her Story so moves you with and her red lip curled into a sneering smile Why not go and of or her Tho Consolation of your love and the shelter of Home to doubt she would gladly accept both As Sho has so Long been trying her arts to win May god forgive you Hilda for your cruel unjust words would that i were worthy of her love or had at Hope that Sho would listen to me. I would go to Hov this hour and ask her to be my wife your heartless words against her have opened my eyes and now i know Sho is the Only woman i Lave Ever loved. And Hilda know As she heard him going Down the Steps that her princely Cousin was lost to her forever. She clenched Lor Dainty hands and muttered Wrath fully but he shall never marry her 1 i take care that Sho does not Crosa his path an hour later when Christine Verne in her Humble abode with her pure proud face wearing a look of pitiful anguish Hoard Hilda s soft sympathetic voice breathing in her ear a plan of escape from her wretchedness and Pov erty she said with a glad ring in her Sweet voice How Good you Are Hilda How could i Ever have doubted your love and sympathy How did you manage to get this position for me and Hilda answered with apparent hesitation her soft Cheek Crim soned Loyal indignation after hearing your sad Story i first went to Cousin Geoffrey for counsel for you with another still lovelier Blush we Are engaged and i thought perhaps he could find some position for you without delay he has so Many influential friends. But do you know hate to Tell you it was so heir actually declared that he doubted your poor Christine drooped her proud head with a gasp of pain. Yes was it not dreadful after that of course i would have scorned his help As i told him on your behalf. But fortunately i knew of this mrs. Harcourt who wants a governess at once to go abroad with her so i went to her without delay recommended you As you deserved satisfied All her scruples and you Are to go to her this very evening and the Day after to mor Row you will sail for the Lovely Flower like face drooping beneath her words As from a cruel blow stirred no throb of pity in Hilda s false heart though her voice assumed a More tender tone As she continued so you must cheer up dear and look life bravely Iii the face again. Once away from this horrid City with its thousand cruel tongues you will for get your trouble and with your Beauty and Pride you will win the heart of some Rich foreigner or other. Good and the tra Itress stooped and kissed her. Christine took the situation offered her and entered on her duties with an aching heart at the very hour when Geoffrey his breast burning with ten Der love was hastening toward her Humble Home determined to put his Fate to the test and ask her to be his wife. Urgent business had taken him from town immediately after his interview with Hilda and she had time to mature her plan and to see it accomplished be for Eliis return. His Surprise and Chagrin May be imagined when he found her gone Aud All his inquiries could elicit no in fornication about her. At last in despair he resorted to Hilda. Do you know what has become of miss Verne she arched her brows. How should i not having your in Terest in her welfare should i repeat what Rumor says i should almost fear you would slay and she shrugged her Graceful a Boulez a Provo kingly. Tell me what you have to said sternly with compressed lips. Only that Sho and Signor Puccini her old music master who always such an a deut admirer of hers in spite of pretty Little mistress i Luccki and the three babies disappeared 1 from Tjio City of the same Day and some Man who is nameless saw two persons bearing a striking resemblance to the runaways walking Arm in Arm in a most confidential manner in Brighton yesterday morning 1 afoul base slander who was the Man who dared say this thing he shall retract his false words or Hilda laughed musically. I said he was nameless. As i have told you All i know on the subject sup pose we select a More pleasant theme of conversation. Did you have a pleasant trip to and All of Geoffrey s inquiries could elicit no further information about Tho woman he loved. At last he fell into a settled gloom and went abroad to seek Relief Iii change and travel. And miss Verne the governess after the first strangeness of her position wore off took up the Burden of life again with a Bravo spirit. Her Little charges soon Learned to love her and being a True woman her Loving heart went out to them in deep tenderness and she daily thanked Hilda de Yore s kindness in obtaining for her the Posi Tion she occupied. But there was one drop of Wormwood which time seemed powerless to soften. That Geoffrey Brandon Tho Man to whom she had Given her heart in those dear old look tone and manner had so often told her she was beloved of have turned against her in her sore distress and trouble should even Havo doubted her honesty was a blow hard to Bear. Doubtless Ere this dear Hilda was his wife and even the pain of his cruel treachery grew loss Sharp As the months rolled away in Beautiful Italy and she was permitted to bask in the glory of that wonderful land. Until one Day in a picture gallery in Home she met him face to face. She tried to escape him but his eager gaze had fastened upon her Lovely features in a very rapture of delighted Surprise and unmindful of the two children by her Side he caught her hands and asked in that thrilling tone she so Well remembered miss Verne Christine How Happy 1 am to find you where have Yon hidden yourself All these weary he would have drawn her Arm through his but she Drew herself haughtily away and answered icily thank you or. Brandon. I have purposely kept my residence a mys Tery from Ono whose doubts of my integrity convinced me that he could have no possible interest in my welfare. Good by i she turned away but he caught her hand. Christine what does this mean do you not know that Hove you better than life did you not rend the truth Iii Tho old Sweet time when nothing but the fear of my own a worthiness kept the avowal from my lips car est Dorost do not turn away mine at least has been the one Loyal heart. Surely such love As mine deserves a better in poise than and. In to spite of the two curious inc i Eji and the stray visitors that flitted through Tho gallery Tho truth came out at last and Geoffrey Learned the Perddy of Hilda de vere s heart and Geoffrey Brandon blessed Tho mis take that gave him his Bride at last. Hilda never met her Beautiful rival again for she married a Rich old banker and wont to Bristol to live be fore Christine crossed Tho Channel once More As the honoured wife of the Man they both loved. Mixed. Artemus Ward was in Louisville just at the close of Tho War and one Day at Tho Louisville Hotal was introduced to a loud talking Confederate colonel. Lot s see said Ward As they Shook hands what Michigan regiment did you command cried the colonel fairly dancing with rage i was on the other beg Par said Ward looking annoyed him self but i have got this War All mixed up what relation does the Spur of the moment Bear to the Point of time god some years Uro a child s body was found on Tho South coast of England having been thrown there by Tho Wien. The Parish clerk on being asked a hold be put on in crave answered in perplexity god this proved a fitting epitaph where the Violet blooms where the Shade of the Sunbeam chases where in Mossy Marble tombs. Sleep the dead beneath Tho daisies where the Mourner slowly wanders when the Bird had som it its nest and amid the gloaming ponders Over those who tranquil rest Clouds across Tho Crim soned sky homeward paly were careering but in that Ioup churchyard i heeded not that night was nearing. Discords in my bosom swelling broke the music of life s song for nay soul was weary dwelling mid the Ever earthly throng. Far within the Stilly Shade of a quiet sequestered Corner where the wild Flowers Bloom and fade gently nurtured by no Mourner was a grave an infant s Only. No one knew the name sle bore. Ask the Waves which dark and lonely cast her lifeless on the Shore. O or the Travo to Humble Stone soared its a chewed head so lowly like a Sentinel water his mid the silence holy. Hither came Trio crop Lnier Raven from this Stone its w ird i otes Rose on Itic. In Taco Julely u were the simple Warda god As a Moonbeam on Tho sea sad wind s shrieks to singing so these tender words to to turned my song Sweet Solace bringing. Though my Thorn strewn Way was dreary though my feet found no repose yet my soul life worn and worry Kested in the Tho Cut Fijoj West. It is work work work with us until verify it is a wonder that the dullness which was predicted for the figurative if he Laboured ceaselessly and never played has not swamped the nation in imbecility. A certain eminent physician maintains that rest and activity might be aptly compared to two sentinels having Between them the duty to perform of guarding a Camp or fort Ress. They must take their charge in Tho Oue goes off the other comes on. Were activity to re main too Long on duty the heart would flutter and fail the brain would reel and Tho Sentinel drop dead of fatigue on the other hand rest might remain Long enough on guard to fall asleep. Thus even rest Niue be Over done and Conduce to sloth ennui and Tony of the brain. And yet How Many of the hundreds of thousands in this great City who possess such vital Camps or fortresses think it necessary to look out for the welfare of their sentinels for Eigners regard us with Awe and wonder they say that Tho Rush and Bustle of this now world sets them wild. A european rests when it is Neces Kiry an american works when it is unnecessary. There May have been some excuse for this tension of exertion while the country was Jet an a reclaimed wilderness and the inroads of nature and Savages had to be considered but now that the nation is upon its feet and to use a vulgaris almost runs this stress of Effort is As absurd As it is disastrous. We do not for a moment doubt that Young America will coincide with us upon the question of wholesome recreation it is prejudice and persons of Remote nativity with whom we have to Battle. Customs which Are destined to affect communities and influence established usages must be introduced by the elders. Yet a Man who has worked All his life and retires to the discussion of rest and an enjoyment such As an ancient horse May experience when halt and Blind he is turned into a blasted pasture will say that what his generation lived through will not prove too severe for succeeding generations. Possibly he May admit if he be of a Liberal turn of mind that years ago before he lost his strength and spirit he might have recruited himself but it is now too late. It is never too late to rest judiciously vitality is a Crescent Force unto the very Brentano s monthly. Saving1 Lorse flesh. A gentleman gives this Little incident As i was Riding along in a out of the Way path i observed a ludicrous scene. I had approached a log Cabin that had several acres cleared around it. In one Corner of Tho lot a negro woman was blowing but she had two girls tugging away trying to break up the hard ground instead of a mule. They had made Little headway As the ground was too hard. About fifty Yards off a negro Man was feeding a rather plump mule. On asking Why with Tho mule he remarked Boss Dis mule is mine de Ole Oman is mine and do gals is mine nobody is Gwine to fetch dem away but if do morgue on Dis Rulo Ain t raised nox fall de White Man will Send de sheriff and take de mule and All i be got. So Boss i thought i d keep de mule fat and let the pals and old Oman work and save Dis Hoss flesh As much As i can fur if de Wust comes i can ride off on de mule an go some Juhar else to work. Dat s if Boss de work won t Hurt de a Republican. A dog bathing master. Our faithful Friend Jet a powerful dog lived with us on the Navesink Highlands. One summer we had a Bright Little fellow who although not in the least vicious yet had a boy s propensity to destroy and to injure and to inflict pain. Master Willie loved Jet clearly and yet he would persist in Tor Turing the patient dog outrageously striking hard blows punching with Sharp Sticks and pulling hair cruelly. One summer s afternoon Jet was lying on the front Piazza taking a Nap and Willie Camo out and assaulted him with a new Carriage whip which had been left in the Hall. Jet knew the child ought not to have the whip so he went and called the nurse s attention As he often did when the children were get Ting into mischief or danger. But the girl did not give Hoed As she should have clone and Willie kept on following Jet from place to place plying the lash vigorously. Finding he was left to Deal with the Case himself Jet quietly Laid the Young one on the floor cure fully took a Good grip in the gathers 01 his Little Frook lifted him Clear and gave him a Hearty sound shaking. Then he took up the whip trotted up to the barn with it came Back stretched himself out in the Shade and finished his Nap. The Young gentleman did not interfere with my again and Ever afterwards treated Liim with great consideration. Nothing delighted the clog More than to go into the water with the Young Folk and to see the bathing suits brought out always put him in the highest spirits. The children called him the Boss of the and so he was As he made All hands do just As he pleased. He would take them in arid bring them out again As he thought fit and there was no use a resisting him As he could master half a dozen at once a the water. No one could go beyond certain Bounds either under penalty of being brought Back with More haste than ceremony. But within the proper limits he never tired of helping the bathers to have a Good time frolicking with carrying them on his Back towing them through the water letting them dive off his shoulders and playing Nicholas. The value of a Dollar. We once employed for a Short time in ditching a Man who at 21 years of age was Worth some but who lost most of it on the whole foolishly and was compelled for a time at least to support Bis family by working for daily wages. One night when we paid him he said i m much obliged both for the wages and the we sup posed he referred to instruction in Lay ing tile drains but he said no i mean instruction As to the value of Money. I never knew what a Dollar was Worth before. But after working All Day in the ditch to earn one i m not Likely to spend 25 cents of it for a Cigar or any other we could Point out scores of City boys who have become miserable spend thrifts from the Lack of just such knowl Edge. Their fathers were More or less wealthy but the sons were not put into the office or Mill or shop and made fairly to earn their Money by tiresome labor either physical or mental. Their fathers said to themselves my sons shall never have to Drudge As i and so the boys did no labor bore no responsibility and never Learned How Money was fairly and honorable earned and of course never knew its value or its proper use. In a certain Rural District we know we can count within a radius of ten Miles More than As Many Young or Middle aged Farmers who have since their majority run through from to each that their hard working fathers left them and All because they never Learned the value of a Dollar. One such on Bis sudden accession to his property thought to impress some of his Young friends at a hotel where they had stopped for dinner by spread ing a Bill on his slice of bread Aud butter and eating it with great apparent relish. He did impress the Oue he might have married with the belief that she had better not marry a Man who was both spendthrift and fool and the Young Man in less than Twenty years saw the time when he was glad to get the bread and butter without the Bill for a relish in youth to had never been taught to labor had had a Large Stock of spending Money com pared with the other Farmers sous und supposed the Only limit to the amount was the old Man s new i order. Misnamed prayers. A correspondent of the National Baptist discussing the lord s prayer takes occasion to say our father which Art in heaven is the commence ment of the prayer which think called the lord s in Matthew i. 9, and Luke is. 1, we read that the Savior taught his disciples it their request to Pray in this not always repeating those words but indicating the proper objects or subjects of prayer. They teach How created intelligence May supplied to the almighty. This May be called the Model prayer showing How Man May Pray As taught by the son of Man himself. The lord prayed for himself on various occasions. The special lord s prayer is recorded in John xvii., and May be read to advantage by All. Portions of it not All May used by us but it is mainly his and his alone. It May be Wem to read the Many prayers recorded in both the old and new testaments. They will instruct As to the Best methods Aud proper supplications. They should prevent vain repetitions and guide our aspirations. The True lord s prayer is in John and is not All adopted to our wants. Tho Model prayer in Matthew and in Luke is All ours capable of much enlargement adapted to our varied wants and necessities and is not by any human authority but by the Only mediator and great intercessor Between god and Man for Universal humanity. A Cheeky adventurer. An entertaining Story is told by a Posth newspaper on the exploits of u hungarian adventurer named somos at Tho Philadelphia exhibition.

Old Trees produce poor or even indifferent fruit and they Are still sound and vigorous they May be made productive and valuable by grafting Good sorts upon them. This work should be clone just As the buds begin to swell. If the tree is a Largo one Only a portion of it should be grafted the first season beginning with the Central part of the head. Great care should to taken that the grafts Are of an excellent variety. It is a common notion among those who clo nos think about the matter that the Mere opera Tion of grafting somehow benefits the tree. The grafted tree is in fact a new tree All of the bearing parts of the old tree Are Cut away and a new head is planted so to speak upon the old one. Hence the new top or head will be of the kind that is placed there and unless Good kinds Are selected grafting will to useless. There Are men who go about the country doing grafting. Some Are very excellous and others Are bungles but there is no need of employing any one. Any boy who can make a Willow whistle can Leurn to graft and every boy should be Able to do it.

Several Theo Ries More or less plausible have been propounded to explain the prejudicial effects of the inhalation of these Vapours but whatever be the sex there is no doubt of the Dan Ger of occupying a room recently painted in which turpentine has been fam played before Complete Dess cation has taken place. It was pointed out by the Council of Hygiene that a sudden death which recently took place in Paris was attributable to this cause it being shown that it could not be ascribed to the Lead which entered into the composition of the paint of the room in which the deceased slept the Lead being fixed Aud non volatile can not in there cases be accused of being the offending element.
