AN ACT OF CHAIM'Y. "Charity suffered! Iouk ami is kind The. words full upon my ear* like the 1 dropping of water upon a rainy day. sat alone in tho great, hltth bucked pow In tho old church, dividing my attention equally between the sermon and the nwal Iowa dipping in and out of the open win dow at my Hide, trying to drown with their shrill chirping the ftoiinrnn* voice of thi clergyman droning away in the queer lit tie pulpit, And I smiled Involuntarily, for Charity Is tins old fnxhmned cognomen which my HiKinsorM In baptism saw lit to bestow upon me, Charity Wayne l>olng my full uitrutt. My smile was rejieated as Eric l'erth's dark eyes, full of mischief, met my own from his seat across the aisle. The Perth pew was quite full that day. X remembered that a gay party of guest* had arrived at the Perth manalau, the grandest In all Allandale. And then* was Nellie, sole daughter of tbo house of Perth, arrayed like the lilies of the field, in tho midst of the gay party. A twinge of some thing like envy touched my hear for an instant as I thought of the great house and tho merry company. Then, quite ashamed of my momentary weakness, I turned my attention once mure to the sermon, just in time to hear the clergy man droning forth, monotonously: "Charity euvieth not; (harity vaunteth not itself, bcarcth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, enduri'th alt things." The sermon eaino to an end at last. There was a fluttering of drapery and i HulKlm-d bustle .'is the congregation llled out of the chiireh, pausing in the broad imrch to greet, friends and neighbors, according to country custom. In a moment Erie was at my wide. "Charity," ho began, in his usual quizzing way, "you have been thoroughly ex pounded this moniingl My dear child, you look as solemn as* an owl. And here is Noll, who wants to invite you to join our party next Thursday. We are going to have a charity ball, preceded by a grand concert, and we want you to mug." "You must not refuse," interposed Nel lie, quickly. "Wo will not take *no' for an answer." But In my heart 1 felt an inner con sciolism's;* that it was ray singing rather than my society which this young Ijelle ami Ix'auty desired. I nodded acquiescence. 1 never could refuse Nell anything; besides, 1 was just dying to go. Alone in the old fashioned churchyard a little. Inter I wandered about among the sunken graves aud mossgrowu headstones, when, turning an abrupt corner at length, I came upon an unexpected apparition. Beside a lonely gravo a man had thrown himself down upon the soft, green grass ami had [alien asleep. I paused in voluntarily. A man of some in) years -tho very handsomest mau I had ever seen. Something In his attitude as he lay there touched my sympathy. lie was evidently no tramp or common wayfarer, for he was handsomely attired, and there was a mag-uiOcent diamond solitaire upon one of his slender, white fingers-a riug which sparkled like imprisoned sunbeams-as 1 paused Irresolutely near. The heat was intense-such a day as only our southern climate can bring forth. The sunshine glinted in bet.wtfii the green pine boughs overhead, and streamed across the pale, delicate features of the sleeping man, A strange impulse prompted me. I bent a little closer over tho recumbent figun aud then started back with a feeling of r. pulhion. "Tho mau is intoxicated:" I exclaimed aloud in disgust. It was evident that he had been wandering through tho graveyard, and overcome by the iniuenoo of the drowsy god was taking a siesta among the tombs. Footsteps fell upon my ears. I knew that the old clergyman, Mr. Lynne, was coining. An odd feeling of pity touched my heart, followed by an inexplicable desire to conceal the stranger's evident condition from the stern old pastor. It would be an act of charity, I argued. So 1 hastily drew my handkerchief from my pocket-a dainty �web of cambric, with "Charity" embroidered with lilies of the one corner, find flung it over the face of tbo sleeping man. As I did so I fell back with a groan of horror at the Bight which met my eyes. Not three feet from the unconscious sleeper a huge rattlesnake lay coiled ready for tho fatal spring. . A brief space and the mau sleeping so peacefully lie fore me would be fatally injured, I turned swiftly and (lew to Mr. Lynne, while with breathless haste 1 panted forth the situation. He motioned to me t-j stand aside, while, calm and determined, ho lifted the heavy vane which ho carried. I never knew how hu did ft, but the snake wus soon disabled, and then, paioand half fainting, I dragged myself away homeward, leaving Mr. Lyuue with the stranger, who bad been unceremoniously aroused from bis slumber. All that week I was immersed in preparations for the concert and ball. Too poor, alas! to purchase an expuuaive costume for tho occasion, 1 worked away with my own hands, and la^t produced quite creditable results. The night of the concert, eiiute-a warm, still June night, the sky flooded with silver, for tho moon was young and t he night Shortly afterward "the oat eh ot the season'' made his bow before me. 1 glanced up with a little start, to see ntv hero of tho churchyard. Allan Morrison was the name that fell upon my cars. He offered me bis arm, and a long promenade followed. Then the dancing began, and Eric Pert it claimed me for tho Ilrst waits. I like Erie. J have always liked him; but somehow I did not feel Inclined to dance just then. But as we whirled away together Erie's darh head was bowed close to my (lushed face, and i \)�ard him wluapor: "Charity, darling-my little wife!" felt my hico blaziug, but 1 made no answer, and we floated away to the sound of the sweet w<x music until tho dance was done. Seating me upon a satin divan Eric went to procure mi ice, when close to my si tie Mr. Morrison started up like a spirit. "How happy you look!" he exclaimed. "Do ]�" I returned lightly. "\WU, who wouldn't lx- happy dancing the 'Manola' with a partner like Eric Perth? His step perfection! Nobody else suits me so well." Of eonrsc 1 alluded to the darning qunli-ies of my late partner. Mr. Morrison e;vted himself deliberately at my side, a ynical expression upon his handsome face. I thought, of the episode in the churchyard and drew involuntarily away. I have no pity, no pardon fur the man who yields to the Circe lures of thefcwlne up. He glanced into my face. "Eric is to lie envied, indeed. Miss Wayne, I have to thank you for an act of charity," he was going on to say; but at; that juncture Erie appeared, followed by a i black coated waiter lieu riug a wilver tray. "I know you must lxi hungry, Charityl" ; cried, in hts gay, innocent way. Erie and I had grown up together, aud lie had never honored me with the .superfluous title which he felt Umud to bestow upon other young ladies. Mr. Morrison arose at once. H was evident io him that tlwre was an understanding between iiric and myself. Sum after 1 saw him in the neighboring bay window, merrily chatting with Nellitt-flirting, of course. Somehow I felt 1 did not love him as of yore. Was it jealousy* Bah! 1 slipped my arm into Eric's and we went off for a stroll in the moonlight. "Morrison looks rather bored," commented my cavalier. But 1 must confess that I failed to perceive it. "By the way," Eric went on swiftly, "that same young man came near having a sunstroke last Sunday* Recollect what a terribly warm day it was. Charity? He foolishly walked all the way -at noon today-from the steamboat landing at our place. We did not e'xpect the boat in arrive until the next day, so never sent t!ie carriage to the landing. Allan undertook to walk it, got so far as the church and just gave up. He went into the churchyard and lay down in the shade; Mr. Lyuue found him there, and lie says thnt he was suffering from the effects of the suu, and that it was a pretty close call. I have known Allan all my life," added Eric, "lie is the very best young man whom I have ever met." I felt my checks burning, my heart heating with a strange, unaccountable feeling of relief, but there was nothing for me to say, so I held my [icace. The ball over, I went home in the early davu with Eric Perth, who took this opportunity to tell me that lie loved me. ann wanted me to be his wilu. I did not love him, and I told him so as kindly as possible. But I did cotcontlde to him that I had learned to love another. Days and weeks went by. I was in the garden at my old home one evening at sunset-a sweet, old fashioned garden, full of old fashioned flowers. I was busy tying up a clump of white lilies when a voice made me start, and glancing up I saw Allan Morrison. "Charity," he began at once, coolly ig noring the fact that 1 was Miss Wayne, "1 have come to say good-by"' I dropped the twine with which I had been alwut to secure my lilies ynd turned a piteous face toward him. "Why must, you go?1" He had my hands in his and was gazing mto my eyes Ixjforo 1 could realize it. "Because 1 love you," he said abruptly, "aud 1 cannot stay her� ant* see you marry another man." "1 am not ifoing to marry any other man," 1 cried. He faced me white aud trembling. "Do not trifle with me," he commanded sternly. "Answer me. Charity Wayne. Are you not betrothed to Eric Perth?" i laughed aloud. "I am betrothed to no one," I responded, "But since you aud I are little more than strangers, Mr. Morrison, how can yon care so much for me.*" "I have loved you ever since that Sunday in the churchyard," he said softly. "I was not asleep. I saw you distinctly-saw the look of disgust upon your face, and heard your low voicvd exclamation in tones of horror. 'The man is intoxicated!1 Then, moved by some gentle, womanly impulse, yon laid your handkerchief over my race. Here"-lie look sotnethiug from his poeket as he spoke-"1 have worn it over my heart since t hat day." It was iny properly, but he did not see fit to restore it to its rightful owner. H went on speaking, his eager eyt* upon my face, as he added: "But Miss Perth assures ire that you are going to marry her brother," And then I knew that 1 did not love Nellie Perth. "1 am not going t>o marry anybody cried angrily. He had his arms around me iu an instant. Then he stooped and-yes-actually kissed met "You arc going to marry me." he announced briefly. And 1 felt thst the whole question was settled. "Charity," called mamma, from the dining room window, "I want you." "rio do 1," whispered Allan, slyly, and befot-u I knew it he had taken my hand add U>d me to mamma, and in a few words mad*- known his modest request, would she give him little Charity, "to have and to hold until death do us partf" m wuu'U wits tiueneu a- m>ny norw, "Was l;o;:i'los,�ly fast in the mud.

Horns growing from the human skin are very uncommon in their occurrence, but one of tho foreign medical journals contains an account from a physician of use of this kind treated by him, tho subject being a laboring man of OS years. The horn projected for an inch from the lower Hp on the right side, and had blunt extremity, was firmly adherent and the skin arouud at the base exhibited superficial ulceration. The fact as elicited was that it had first appeared as a small warty growth some three years previously, had .ly increased, and after being cut off with a razor on two occasions seemed to grow again quicker each time. On the opposite Mdo of the t-amo lip was what appeared io be another warty growth in it* early stages, and the pat lent was in the habit of holding; his clay pipe this side and not ou that from whie.h the horn grew. There were no glands enlarged and the patient was in a good state of health. The treatment, which was entirely successful, consisted in the removal of the horn, together with the part of the lip to which it was attached, by means of a email V shaped incision tinder cocaine locally injected, and bringing the edges together with one or two sutures.-New York Tribune.

"Renting out a play," said a well known comedian, "is just now largelyiu vogue with native authors who have made a reputation and tbo^ speculators who purchase the American rights of foreign successes. In point of financial returns it is about the same as selling a drama on royalty, but the great advantage in renting out is that the author retains the ownership of his production, and can always control it, whereas in a sale on royalty the property right passes i entirely out of his hands. ' "Should the royalty not be paid of course the author has his legal remedy, but if bis play be simply rented out all he has to do is to go and take possession of it in case of a failure to settle thereat, thus saving time, trouble, cost and anxiety, to say nothing of avoiding the law'fl delay."-Philadelphia Inquirer. frank KNAt's.

After one of the flue heads (employing this method) Is engraved upon the soft Btool the plate Is hardened to Its utmost capacity.

This forces the soft steel into the lines of tho hardened plate, and the result is a reverse In high relief on tho roll of tho engraved portrait whore the lines were cut Into the metal. Tho roll is hardened and the portrait is then capable of being transferred-thnt Is, rolled-Into numberless soft steel plates.

Mildred wants advice about the teeth. She is IJii. and her teeth were neglected when younir, arc irregular, which she sup poses cannot be helped, and are decaying fast; but she does not want to have nrti flcial ones. Is there anything that will arrest decay? Certainly. Take powdered charcoal for the stomach dally; brush the teeth with it till they become white, which will take a week, perhaps; then use prepared chalk and a good tooth wash for rinsing the teeth after meals. Eat only bread of entire wheat flour, as that supplies the phosphates tor bones and teeth, and use cracked wheat as a vegetable freely. It is as good as rice iu every way, There is a candy for children mixed witl: phosphates which is said to have a gooti effect on the teeth, and is of benefit to older persons, as I can vouch. Whether very strict care of health and diet would result iu improvement and new growth of the materials of the teeth, as some dentist* say has occurred, is a question, but the advantage in every other way would be so great the exi>eriment is worth trying. It certainly ought to arrest de cay. Acidity of tho stomach ruins teeth, and if this can be prevented crumbling teeth will last a long time.--Shirley Dam BY HON M'CLEI.Ti AND. Caledonian Games. It has beeu noticed that there are not nearly so many Caledonian games booked for the summer as in former years, when all through the northern part of thu United .Status and southern pnrt of Canada so many towns won hi )-.jld games. The opinion seems to Ue amoug Scotchmen that one reason for the decline is that on account of money prizes beinuf given many athletes were developed who made specialties at one or two events and this set would go through the cir'-iiit winning all the prizes and actually killing competition, which people vho attended the games expected to see*. Athletes who take part in these games say that although there are not so many small j games given there are more good onen now than ever, for the large cities in America continue to hold their customary contests and are giving better prise* than formerly.
