Helen wanted to tell him that ii was time for lunch, but did not, under the circumstances, think it best to lower herself to do so, So Hob probably didn’t get any. A week Inter came the tea one of Hie ghastliest ordeals imaginable for Hob. A word with everybody,a sentence with nobody, a bewildering sea of black coots, on the shores of which were several excited girls serving sherbet, chocolate and tea, anil all the time, smiling, laughing, frowning, at tin solid walls of human bewigs around them. By great exertions Hob managed to pierce his way to a table more crowded than the others, where a alight, pretty girl, with blue eyes and light-brown hair, was serving the chocolate , “Do you need anything, Miss Sleep ard?” lie asked, in a low tone, bending down over her. “No, thanks; one of the other waiters is getting things for me,” she said, loudly. Hob wisely ignored tile compliment, nearly cracked his cheeks trying to smile, and Anding a chair near the wall, drew it up and began talking to Miss Shepard, who seemed to pay very kittle attention lo him. "Aren’t you tired of pouring out?" he naked, at length, after he had seen several quarts disappear. “Helen said she would send some one to relieve you soon.”' "Yes, I wish she would; I need re lief,” answered Miss Shepard. This looked encouraging, but Bob was more or less used to it. Besides, as his sister hinted, lie was contested, so that Miss Shepard’s last remark had no perceptible effect on him. A minute later, another girl was brought by Miss (Jardner to attend the chocolate, arid Bob walked away with Miss Shepard. They passed through the dining-room slowly, and into the conservatory, which was just now vacant and lighted ver7 dimly by the sunset, but the hum from the other room filled the air. “Weil?’ said Miss Shepard, sitting "Vl-s SU I.I*A IID. could.

I'urloMitleN of Frog's Kggn. Frogs' eggs are laid before they really become eggs in the true sense of that word. They are always laid under water, and when first deposited are covered with r. sort of envelope in the shape of a thin membrane. In this shape they are very small, but as soon us they come in contact with the water they rapidly absorb that element, and in so doing go through a queer transformation. The thin membrane containing the little seed-]ike eggs is quickly changed into great lumps of a clear jelly-like substance, each section joined to th;? other, Hie whole forming ti string from a few inches to several feet in length. On the inside of each of these lumps of jelly the eggs come to perfection, and iii due course of time add their quota lo the frog population of the world. JCLAX lirlght Irish Wit. J/ord Waterford used to tell some good stories of his exjierienee as an Irish magistrate. One of them referred to the ease of a woman whom lie had to sentence for a breach of the jieac**. He let her off on condition that she found two securities in JU IO each that ■he would keep the peace for six months. “Thank ye, my lard," said she, moving toward the door. "No, no,” said Lord Waterford, “you must name jrtmr securities, that I may see whether they are satisfactory.” "Faith, and who would I name," she answered, “but your lordship’s self; yer good enough for two”—a retort which not only allowed the sprightliness of the Irish character, but in addition the feeling of friendly confidence which the Irish peasantry who knew him cherished for the lord of Curraghmore.—London Telegraph.
