A a i think it most be him to come Nowfe Gertrude Fisher glanced up at the clock a tiny Mother of Pearl dial resting in a tangled mass of gilded wheat and Ivy leaves beneath an elaborate Glass Shade the hour hand was fast verging on the figure eight when Gertrude sighed softly to herself and no More took up tho bit of delicate Needle work with which she was occupying herself. Gertrude was a Tail Noble Loo hug girl with Jet Black hair brushed plainly Back from her Clear Pale face and features pare and emotionless us those of a classic statue. Her dress was of Rich wine closed silk but very simple and the Garnet ornaments that she wore set in heavy etruscan Gold seemed peculiarly adapted to her style of Beauty. All the fittings and appointments of the room around her were elegant und luxurious Beto Kening the refinements of wealth. The carpet was of a soft Pearl Gray with White ends strewn Over it delicately shaded into Crimson the Walls were Gray Panu eled with Gold and the furniture was of darkly veined Rosewood upholstered with Grey velvet while the pictures hanging from a glided Rod which run around Ine inner Edge of the Cornice the stagnetto on their carved brackets and the Alabaster vases filled with rare trailing ferns and Hothouse blossoms were selected with the utmost taste and care. For Gertrude Fisher was an heiress and she had Learned the Best Aud truest Way of enjoying wealth. The time seemed to pass away very slowly As she sat there listening to the Silver lick of tha clock Aud an occasional fall of a glowing cider from the Gate into the polished fender below and waiting auriou8ly for her engaged Lover to make us appearance. He is not often so late As this 1 thought Gertrude drawing out her Little jewelled watch und comparing it with the clock with a sort of an acknowledged Hope that the Mother of Pearl dial was too fast. But 110 the two timepieces tallied exactly and Gertrude had no re Inge but to bigot again Unda blame herself for being too particular. A of course i cannot expect him to measure time by the second she said. But nevertheless she did feel a Little disappointed. A i wonder where Cecile is a mused Gertrude a even her merry unreasoning kit would be better Tuliau this dead silence and loneliness. I sup Jose she bus Goue up to her room for the Iii Ghl but Cecile Moore had not Goue no to her room us her Cousin supposed.

It was toward the close of a lowering Day in december that miss Fishers Carn Aero closely shut and cushioned with velvet Drew tip in front of one of those fashion emporiums where ladies Delight in congregating. Madame do Abri herself came Forward to Greet the Rich heiress. A a is my dress finished Madayn inquired Gertrude. Madame would inquire. Would miss Fisher be seated presently she returned. In a fit of French gesticulating do a it was through no fault of hers but miss Bliss the for woman had allowed the seamstress to take it Hume to finish of Bhe bad Asick husband whom she could not leave and they were starving also butement starving a cried Madame d Aubri with a flattering motion of her flexible fingers. A a but it should to sent for immediately the Robe of some Grin and it was the last the ver Vlast time that a dress should Ever be allowed to go out of the a a never mid Madame a said miss Fisher Good hum redly a it is really a mutter of no great moment fortunately i have other dresses so you used not and sho re entered her Carriage followed by Madame apologizing Ali the Way. 1 Richard Adams Loche the Nalbor of the great a Thoon hoax. Bichard Adams Loche who threw the country into a terrible excitement about thirty five years ago by the perpetration of the celebrated a a Moon hoax a died yesterday at his residence on Staten Island at the age of seventy one. In 1835 Moses y. Bench moved to Quot new York and purchased the Sun of its original proprietors. The Sun had been established a Short time previous but it had lingered along upon the verge of a collapse until or. Beach took it in hand and placed it fairly on the Road to Success. He engaged As editor or. Loche then a Young Man of literary tastes but unknown to Fame. For a few months after Loche took charge of the paper it failed to create any marked sensation and in All probability would have proved As unsuccessful in tho end under its new management As under the old if Loche had not forced it upon the Universal notice of the Public by the most ingenious and successful hoax Ever perpetrated. One Day in August 1835, the first step towards placing the Gigantic fraud before the Public was taken. A prefatory article appeared in the editorial columns of the Sun announcing that the eminent English astronomer sir John Herschel Hud recently made some remarkable astronomical discoveries by Means of a monster Telescope at the Cape of Good Gertrude had nearly reached her Home Hope.

A Rel Lyubi u1iu a a the Recreant Lor whose coming Sweet Gertrude sighed in vain. Cecile was a3 different from Gertrude As a glancing Are Fly is from the steady glow of a Star or a babbling sparkling Stream from the Silver surface of u Lake. She was Small and perfectly shaped und pin but with Golden liar and a transparent skin and those Peculiar Turquoise Bane eyes which so often accompany a blonde style of Beauty. She had come to London at Gertrude a invitation to spend the Winter with her and Gertrude a generosity had supplied the soft Bluem it Rino which be wore with its Sapphire velvet trimmings Aud even the set of Pink Coral which relieved her Waxen skin with its deep Rose tint. Gertrude had grown very fond of Cecile whom she regarded us a sort of playthings a live doll or a tiny White Kitten and Cecile found her Cousin s luxurious Home a pleasant contrast to the dreary farm House where her Uncle and his second wife barely tolerated her As a nurse seamstress and general Drudge to their Many children. A a answer me Cecile a persisted George Tracy holding both her Small White hands in his and looking directly into the Lur Luoise Bloe eyes. Cecile struggled to a George How can you ? what would Gertrude say a i done to care two straws what Gertrude says i am Only into rested in you my Darling.

I lion old be sent Home to Morrow a a a then Yon will try and love me Dearest a he pleaded. She gave him a glance from beneath her Long curled eyelashes a glance half tender half coquettish and entirely bewildering. George Tracy had been wavering and Uncertain before now he lost his self Possession entirely. And while Gertrude sat waiting and wondering in the drawing room above. George and Cecile arranged the treacherous plan which was to wreck her forever with Calm smiling faces Aud voices which never faltered once. A a Sarah go no stairs anti Call miss Moore to the breakfast table a said Gertrude the next morning to the parlor maid who bad brought in the hissing non. A she is later than usual.

And that was the last Gertrude Fisher Beard of her Cousin Cecile and her betrothed husband George Tioy for Long sad did she do what do people generally do when the weight of a great misfortune Falls upon them crushing the very life and vigor out of their hearts ? they suffer and endure and live on. Gertrude did this and after the first bitterness had died onto her nature a kindly and a generous one she even Learned to think forgiving by of George and the Little Bloe Eye girl she had so loved and Cheru Hedi i i a a a a.

My Dame do Aubri was astonished by the second appearance of miss Fisher. A the address i will obtain it of miss Bliss a she said a air you will kindly wait presently she came rustling behind the counter with a hit of , which she gave to Gertrude with a Low curtsey. Gertrude glanced at it. A a bad neighbourhood i should judge a she remarked casually. A ooh upper obvious indeed a assented Madame who was a Little Unic laiu in the use of English adjectives. Gertrude gave the paper to her Coachman. With directions to him to proceed directly thither. It was nearly dark when she reached the number indicated a melancholy looking House in u miserable neighbourhood. Fourth floor Back room a said an old woman on the ground floor and gathering her Silken skirts closely around her miss Fisher mounted the Steep stairs where to judge from appearances brooms Aud soapsuds were alike ignored. Of i. the door of the bomb u i a a cat Edv a hollow eyed Little child Mcanlly dressed opened it just far enough to Peep through. Gertrude could see tie murky Glimmer of a lamp on the table Aud Tiro sullen glow of an insufficient fire in a miserable unite. The room was Small and exceedingly close and bore the aspect of the wretched est poverty. A a i Nave come Here in search of a seam Tress who works Lor Madame Celeste d aiibr.,�?� said Gertrude. Mamma 1�?� said the Little child doubtfully but Ohe opened the door a fraction wider and Gertrude entered. A woman was sewing on the identical Rol o de sote Grin with intent eyes and flying fingers. A Man stretched motionless on tie bed with a Sheet pulled up Over his face. A. A a you Are in. Trouble said Gertrude gently trying to accustom her eyes to the dim us Ceram Light.

A a i am your Cousin Gertrude 1�?� replied her kind vistor.

Gertrude went to the Side of the Couch and looked at the face of her dead lovers the Man she had so worshipped years ago. It wus old and Haggard now with sunken features and strange set lines round the Mouth and brow and As she stood shuddering there the last spark of the love she had Chens Aej for so Many years died out forever. She had forgiven him once now she forgave his memory.

A in nil the pain Ond bitterness of her first bereavement Gertrude Fisher bad never wished for revenge but sho had it now foil and Complete _ George Tracy Lay dead before her eyes and cecuetreptflp0� her breast Rived from an Advance copy of the de my Rigli journal of science. This preparatory announcement answered the in to did purpose and served to attract the attention of the Public to whom none of the inti Rellous details had yet been Given. Expect Atyinn was on tip toc and when u few lays after the republication of the bogus article from the Edinburgh journal of science wus commenced the wonderful Story wus devoured with the greatest eagerness. The hoax bore to following head a a a great astronomical discoveries lately made by sir John Herschel l. L. D., f. R. A ac., at the Cape of Good Hope.�?�. The hoax was admirably introduced by a dissertation upon the labors of the her Schiels father Aud son and by an elaborate description of an immense Telescope erected by the latter at the Cape of Good Hope the marvellous magnifying Powers of which were commented upon in such a manner As to prepare the mind of the Reader for what was to follow. There was also a somewhat elaborate and gravely written dissertation upon the investigations and discoveries of the astronomers with regard to the Moon which was like the rest of the hoax sufficiently scientific in its style to throw the unwary off their guard. The supposed wonderful discoveries in mis i Muir Mitu Cuoni a a a a pc june by 10, 1835, about half past 9 o clock. Basaltic Rock of a greenish Hue was first seen and As the Field of vision changed formations similar to those of the islands of to Taffy came into View covered in some places with gorgeous red Owera. A lunar Forest next appeared Many of the Trees being unlike any Ever seen on Earth with the exceptions of a few which resembled English yews. Then followed various landscapes All of which or. Lollie described with much minuteness keeping sufficiently near to Earth nature not to excite the suspicions of his readers and at the same tune stimulating their curiosity by narrating a variety of wonders such As our Earth does not possess. A few lunar in Imus were said to have been seen on the first night of their observations but the greatest wonders were reserved for subsequent investigations. On the night of january 13, which the hoaxer described As one of a Pearly purity Aud loveliness a the astronomer Aud his assistants determined to devote themselves to an investigation of a comparatively limited area of the Moons sur Lake. The landscape features of this area were described by the hoaxer with much minuteness and various animals resembling the Bison Reindeer Moose and the Earth but with sufficient variations to make them remarkable were reported of having been seen together with a Good Nauy which resembled nothing existing anywhere but in tie vivid imagination of a. R a. A tub no la 1.11, a Atin it of All what True love ii. From a Pink Ond Whilo tyranny a by in. It b. Stowe. Many women suppose that they love their husbands when unfortunately they have not the beginning of an. Idea what love is. Let me explain to you Ray dear lady. Loving to be admired by a Man Loving to be petted by him to be praised by him is not Loving a mau. All these May be when a woman has no Power of Loving at ally they May All to simply because Slie loves herself and loves to to flattered praised caressed Doax Edi us a cat likes to be coaxed and stroked and fed with Cream and have a warm Corner. But All this is not love. It May exist to be sure where there is love it generally does. But it May also exist where there is no Lave. Love my dear ladies is self sacrifice it is a life oat of self and in another. Its very essence is a tho preferring of the Comfort the ease the wishes of another to ones own Fok the love we Bear them. Love is giving and not receiving. Love is not a Sheet of blotting paper or a sponge sucking in everything to itself it is an out springing Fountain giving from itself. Loves motto has been dropped in this world As a Chance Gem of great Price by the loveliest the fairest the purest the strongest Lovera that Ever trod this mortal Earth of whom it is recorded that to said a it is More blessed to give than to a now in love there Are ten receivers to Ono giver. There Are ten persons in this world who like to be loved and love not where there ii one who knows How to love. That of my dear ladies is a nobler attainment than All your French music and dancing. Yon May lose the very Power of it by smothering it Noder a Loaa of self indulgence. By living just As you Are All wanting to live a living to to petted to to flattered to to admired to a on ted simply because they would accept j Ujj Quot by out a by Litfia Ulo Padr of up lev 1 pm 1 Anil self sacrifice Yon May lose the Power of Loving nobly Aud worthily and become a Mere Sheet of blotting paper a time for scientific men and doubters to discover whether or not the Edingburgh journal of science bad published a supplement and if Sneh were the fact to ascertain whether or not it had Given to the world any such1 marvellous Story As was being detailed in the columns of the Sun. An amusing and somewhat Acri motions dispute was carried on for some time Between the credulous sceptical concerning the pretended discoveries but the general verdict of the people and the press was in favor of accepting them As truth. Some Learned professors in our colleges even went so far As to write to the Edingburgh journal of science for Fuller details. The whole Story was told with such wonderful minuteness and such downright Candor As to disarm the incredulous for the time. It is True Tomt the Boax read at the present Day appears so full of Chi cities contradictions and impossibilities that in the Light of our present knowledge it would be picked to pieces by a school indeed carried his joke to the most extreme limits and imposed on the carelessness of the Public in the most reckless Way. In one place he stated that the Lens of sir John Herschel a monstrous Telescope would not Render perceptible objects less than eighteen inches in diameter and immediately after referred to the astronomer detecting the shape and color of the eyes of Small Birds. People were too completely absorb cd in the startling picture As a whole to notice at once such a trifling defect in one of its details. The wonderful Man bats and the hairy veils by which the eyes of the bosons were protected from the Glare of the Sun were too entertaining to allow the mind to wander to less interesting absurdities. So the hoax was a Complete Success for the time and the few who donated were to be found principally in the ranks of the ignorant among those who knew Little or nothing about astronomy and no evidence of the truth. Of r Many years tho a Moon ilo axe was out of print Una a could be found Only in the scrap books of curiosity mongers but in 1859 it was is sued ill a pamphlet form by William Gowans at new York and even at that late Day bad a wide circulation. The a Moon hoax established the Sun upon a firm basis and by the time the joke was fully exposed Aud the people re-1 t1e Jjon Hilliard Vaux past r. W.

They were said to be about four feet in height and were covered except to Weir face with Short and Glossy cupper coloured hair. They had wings composed of to Laid membrane without hair which Lay snugly upon their backs from the top of the shoulders to the calves of their les. Their faces wer ascribed As of a Yellowish flesh color Ait do As resembling Orang outings some Hilj in expression but More open Aud intelligent and with greater expansion of forehead. The Mouth was prominent though somewhat relieved by a thick Beard on the lower jaw and by lips distinctly human. These creatures appeared to the astronomers As being engaged in conversation and their be stipulations were impassioned and rapid and All their actions gave indications of intelligence. The Domestic habits of these lunar men were described with much minuteness. Another wonder was a mag of client Temple of polished Sapphire and roofed with yellow Metal wherein the lunar people worshipped und tins was described in such a manner us to excite curious speculations As to the nature of the Reli Rion professed in the Moon.
