As a spring medicine, tonic and blood purifier it has no equal. Miss Lucy Crandall had been invited to join Mrs. General Clermont’s party for a season at Saratoga Springs, and the only obstacle to her acceptance of the kind offer lay in the fact that her faithful old family servant, Mchitablc Cranch, had been called aw’ay to attend upon the lingering illness of a sister, and would probably be detained for weeks at her bedside. Lucy had lived at the homestead since her parents’ death, and had cared for and petted quite an army of domestics who had been left upon her hands. They had gradually grown decrepit and suiicraniiuated, but her heart was too tender to have them made away with, and now she could not harbor the thought of shutting up the house and leaving them to forage for themselves. In this emergency she concluded to leave her washerwoman in charge. She had only lived in the village a few months, but was a respccUible looking woman, and a cbiircli member. She was glad of the offer, onlv stipulating that she should be allowed to have her step-daughter come and stay with her. Lucy consented cliccrfully. • “I did not know that von bad any family, Mrs. O’Connor. Wiicrc is the little girl ?” she asked. •‘She is at school with the Sisters, ma’am. Poor O’i’onnor left a little money, and I made up my mind that Norah should have the good of it in getting an Education.” Xorah O’Connor was not the little girl Lucy had pictured to herself in recurring to Mrs. 0‘Counor's words. She was fully sixteen, and had blossomed within the year into a rich, entrancing beauty. Lucy bad already gone when Xorah came; so all through the summer she retained the impression that Mrs. O’Connor’s step-dauglitcr was a frolicsome child, drinking in her till of country sights and sounds before autumn should take her back to the Sisters. Lucy had few relatives; but her cousin Howe—an orphan like herself —had always been to her like a brother. He saw Lucy and her party safely off, and promisei at the parting moment to look in at the homestead every day to sec that all went satisfactorily there. So Lucy cast care to the winds, and gave herself up to the enjoyment of the novel scenes wliich soon surrounded her, and amid which the first romance of her life began. Such delicious moonlight rambles, when, amid the group of jicdcstrians, Lucy was the one invariably singled out, by Vincent Frankland. But the season passed, and Lucy returned home witii a new pain haunting her iieart. If Viiicciit Frankland loved horas his actions had p’ainly showed— why had he remained silent ? Lucy’s thoughts never once tnrned upon the real reason ot Vincent’s silence. She herself cared so little for money that a suggestion that her pos-scssious were a barrier to Vincent having declared himself her lover would have brought an incredulous smile to her lips. He was the last reiircsentativc of a proud hut impoverished family and had worked his way ihrougli college by taking private pupils. He had yielded to the iicrilons sweetness of the attraction which drew him toward Lucy, and all unwittingly had planted a tlioru in her previously tranquil heart. But he was equally a sufferer. Never before had lie coveted wealth. Had he jKissesscd the treasures of tlie Indies, he would cast them at her feet; but the one rich treasure whicli he could have oftercd—his heart— was withheld. So the two parted—each to go a diffei*eut way—each to carry a heart filled with paiu along life’s hitherto cloudless pathway. Howe met Lucy at the station. lie was so preoccu))ied in his manner that Lucy noticed it and said at last: “What arc you thinking of, Cousin Ilowe ? Yon liavc barely said half a dozen words since wc met. Has anything happened ?” Howe colored at Lucy’s question. After a moment’s silence, he answered in a low tone: “Yes, Lticy, something has happened, and if*you have no objection, I Avill drive around the lake and explain it to you before I take you home.” “I hope it is nothing bad, Howe,” said Lucy in a startled tone. “That depends upon the way one locks at it. 1 am an interested party, aiui, of course, can not exjiect others to see through my eyes. The truth is, Lucv, I am eoing to be married, and as the worltl in general will cavil at niy choice, I want to enlist you upon my side. You are so good and true yourself that I am sure good ness and innocence will weigh as heavily iu the scale as worldly prom iucnce, and—” Lucy smiled at Howe’s labored explanation. “You dear boy I one would think yon were going to marry a washerwoman’s daughter to hear you. There isn’t a girl worthy of you in the whole Tillage; but they aro all Amer ican princesses, you know. We have no aristocrats in America.’' “I’m not so sure of that, Lucy. But wait until I.tell you more about my wife that is ito be. You hit the nail on the head in the beginning of your sentence. I am really going to marry the daughter of a washerwoman.” Lucy grew suddenly white. A troubled look came into her frauk eyes. “You don’t mean to say that it is the little girl whom I gave Mrs. O’Conner i>ermission to bring to my house, that has worked this mischief!” “It is indeed Norali O’Connor, poor in this world’s gear as she is rich in a woman’s peerless loveliness. But I reckoned without my host in thinking you sujicrior to the treditions of society. I might have expected that even you would be cold and scornful.” “No, Howe, I am neither the one nor the other. I am, however, truly grieved at your infatuation. Will you kindly say no more about it now and drive me home?” Lucy’s sudden dignity angered Howe, and, with an impatient exclamation, he devoted himself to the care of the* spirited animal he was driving. At her own door Lucy put out her hand. “Whatever happens, Howe, your cousin Lucy will be yourlricnd. But do not tax mo beyond a woman’s lM)\ver of endui-ancc. If you are in earnest in what you have said, I advise you to think well ot it and do iiotliiiig tor which you will be sorry In the future.” “Your disapprobation has given me the greatest pain that I expect to experience, Lucy. Blit it has not altered iny mind. I worship the very ground liiy darling’s feet have touched."’ “I only wish you may always feel so, Howe,” was Lucy’s rejoinder; “for a marriage out of one’s 'station seldom confers lasting liapjiincss.” Tlie marriage took place, hut Lucy did not attend it. Howe took his bride away for the wedding tour, and. finding so much enjoyment wliere, as no one knew anytbin{^ about Norah’s antecedents, she could not he exposed to slights, and all did liom.agc to her beauty and "race, their stay was prolonged indefinitely. Lucy had never seen Norah, as her old liouse-kcepfi* had returned to her place the week previous to her«wn arrival at home, and she had declined Howe’s jiroposal to bring ids fiancee to the house to introduce her. A few months after, she received a note from him, accompanied by a sealed package. “Deaii Cousin Lucy,” wrote Ilowe —“for so I shall always call yon, although you have crossed me off your good hooks—I herewith send a tangible excuse for what you consider iny folly. Ijook upon the pictured tacc—which does not do full justice to the original—and acknowledge that you have for once been a harsh judge. I assure you it is the index of a fine nature, which is daily developing into a luxuriant growtli of goodness, and whose possessor is one of eartli’s most git ted souls in more ways than mere personal beauty. If you should coiir cIikIc to come abroad I hope you will let ‘bygones he bygones,” and come and join us.    Cousin Howe.” “The glamour still lasts,” thought Lucy, as she reinovcd the wrapping paper from the picture. •    , But she wondered no longer when at last her eyes rested upon it. It was taken in what was evidently a bridal dress, lor orange blossoms-Avcro fastened in the soft lace which floated iu transparent folds around the exquisite face and iorin. It was not a rich costume, but its simplicity rendered it the more evident that its wearer needed no glimmer of silk or satin to add to her qnecnship iu the ranks of womanly beauty. As Lucy noticed the absence of rich accessories in Norah’s dress she recalled some words spokcu by Ilowe which had brought at the time a scornful smile to her lips. “Norah is stubborn about one thing, LucjV’Ii^ said. “She will not accept a gift of mo unless it he of flowers. I would like to buy her somctliing costly and unique fur her bridal robe, hut she will not let me. 1 tell her it is all nonsense, when she will so soeii own me, and all my worldly goods into the bargain.” These words arose and floated through Lucy’s mind now, as though to prove that the fair,patrician looking face before her was conscious of a heaven horn right to hold as proudly to her ideas of right and inopriety as anv lady in the land. “I do not wonder at Howe’s hallucination after seeing a picture of his wife,” she said, a lew hours later to an intimate friend. “If she is as beautiful as she is represented, a man ini"ht well lose his senses about hci-.” Lucy occasionally heard from Vincent Frankland in an indirect wa^’— now through a mutual acquaintance, or again by some newspai»er notice of him. He had finished his law studies, and was working industriously at his profession. The last newspaper paragrapli with regard to him had chronicled the fact that he had been retained upon an imiiortant suit, and had taken passage upon the steamer Cambria to go abroad for needful eyidencc. Mrs. General Clermont, the same lady who had chaperoned Lucy at Saratoga Springs, had long contemplated a European tour, and some three years after IIoavc’s marriage she carried out her intentions. Lucy went with her. At last she saw the realization of her girlish dreams of rambling amid historic scenes. All was new and interesting; but one thing seemed strange to Liuy. At home Mrs. General Clermont was one of the leaders of society. Her movements were heralded by the reporters, and her dresses at the numerous receptions and parties “honored by her presence” were described miich in the same way that the Court Journal discuases the doings of the royal family and of the charmed circle surrounding them. But abroad she was as little noticed as the humblest. Her great wealth, however, was useful in procuring her every comfort and luxury; and daily did her glossy coated carriage horses draw her beautifully apiwinted equipage along the most approved h^uut8 of aristocracy and fashion. They were often accompanied by Mrs. Mordaunt, a member of the American colony in Paris, tyho had been stopping in London long enough to become versed in society gossip, and to know celebrities when she saw them. One day they were drivlug leisurely along when a carriage passed with the ducal strawherry leaves upon its panels. Mrs. Mordaunt called her companion’s attention to its occupants by a significant gesture. “ÍA)ok,” she said in an undertone; “I will tell wliy afterward.” They obeyed and saw a dignified looking matron, dressed in black velvet and resplendent with brilliants, with a younger lady occupying the scat beside her. The latter Avas in Avhite, with a hunch of half-opened jacqueminot roses in her hand, and auuther fut|t-eiied at her hrciist by a diamond-studded arroAV. “What a charming face! And Avherehavc I seen it?’’ asked Lucy in a quiet Avay. “It is one of the faces fashionable people liaA'e a ravingabout,” answered Mrs. Mordaunt; the lady is Mrs. Mer-vyn-Crandall. Tliey call her by the romantic name of ‘Úose of Erin, and she is of Irisli descent. There is a story connected Avith her AvJiicli adds to the interest her beauty excites. She comes of a line old family on her mother's side, and through her has just inherited a magnificent |)5rtunc, Avhich Avas secured to her by the researches of a young American lawyer. Her companion is the Duchess of Goldhorough, Avlio presented her to the Queen at the last draAving-'rooin.” But even Avithout the name Lncv had placed that beautiful face, ft Avas the same she had seen in the portrait sent to her by her cousin HoAve. Mrs. Mordauut went on Avith her narration:    * “It seems that her mother made a mesalliance with her tutor and Avas discarded by her family. Tlio married lovers ilcd to America, and soon after tlie birth of her child the romantic young mother died. Her husband married again; soon after, lie also paid last debt of nature—fol-loAviiig his first wife - Avitliin three years of her demise. He left some money, and his second Avife proved hoAV noble a nature may exist in the breast even of an uncducatéd Ioav-horn Avomaii—for she Avas both of these. She religiously devoted her dead husband’s money to tliQ education of the child left upon her hands. Siie had ncA'cr told Norah about the strain of noble blood she had inherited from her oavii mother, fearing that it would give her aspirations Avhich could ncA'er he realized. She had meant her to get a snflicicntly good education to he competent to earn her living by teaching. But her innocent beauty Avon the honorable Ioa’c of a wealthy gentleman, Avlio married her, iiotAvithstanding the opposition of his relatives, little thinking that the flawless pearl he liad rescued from |ts IoavIv suiTonndings Avas to turn out a di.i-mond in disguise. Isn’t it good onuugh to Avrite a hook about ?” “Yes,” replied Lucy quielly. But she kept the fact of her relationship to herself. Her pride rose iu anus at the thought of seeming to Avisli to shino in the reflected light which cin-aiiatcd from the surroundings of the once slighted Norah. But ui)on returning froip their drive Lucy found the card Ot Mrs. Mervyn-Crandall aAA'aiting her, and beside it lay the charmed bit of pasteboard Avhicli bore the name of the high-horn companion of her drive. “She is nobler naturcd than lam,” Avas Lucy’s silent comment, as she read the names on the cards and then passed them to her companiuus. “What does it moan, Lucy ?” asked Mrs. Mordaunt. “It is almost like receiving notice from royalty.” “If means that Mrs. Mervyii-Cran-dall is married to my coiisiii, and I Avas the relative who tried iny host to break up AA’liat I thought his uufor-funate fancy for her.” “And this is her revenge,” suggested Mrs. Mordaunt. “No»; there is not a single trait about Howe’s wife but w'ould do credit to a Triucess of the blood royal. She is simply magnanimous eno*u"h to extend a Avelcomc to HoAve’s cousin, but I shall not accept it.” “You foolish girl!” exclaimed Mrs. General Clermont “It is just refusing the open sesame to the very ereme de la creme of that sotiety which I have an ambition to move in. For my sake be as forgiving as is Mrs. Crandall—though it is galling to for give an injurv Avhen one’s self is the transgressor.^’ But Lucy Avas not allowed to cs cajie from her cousin’s patrenagc so easily. The next morning brought them to her, and in their company was one Avhose presence sent Lucy’s heart-blood thrilling through her veins so rapidly that it Avas all she could succeed in doing to keep frem betraying her emotion. So she forgot to keep up the dignified role she had planned. Vincent Frankland was the young lawyer Avho had restored Norah to her rightful place as ticiress to her mother’s estates, and his success had not alone enriciied him but had given him more briefs than many older luminaries of the laAV can ooa8t;and a wedding took placo at St. George’s, Hanover Square, a fcAV months after, at Avhicli the cynosure of all eyes (after Lucy, the bride, of course Avas) Norah, “The Itose of Erin.”—[N.

[rari<4 Ix:U«r in Cliicaeo Hcrald.J Every day Avhilc at Treuville I saAv a shoAvy lady of most voluminous proportions and gorgeously arrayed a rAmericaino, driving out iu a dashing victoria or sloAvly gliding along like a frigate under full siyl through the uarroAV streets. Everybody looked after her, lor she was a most look-aftcr-ahlo person. I could not tell Avliy I believed her to he an American, unless because of her elaborate costumes, for slio Avas a vivid brunette, such as one sees a thousand times oftcncr in France than in the United States, and her heavily jiow-dcrcd complexion told no tales of a nativity anyavhere hetAVcen Chicago and Timhuctoo.

The aid of the courts Avas then invoked, and at last accounts the matter was not decided. In the meantime, the value of the head for purposes of dissection, if tliat is Avhat the physician Avaiited it for, is rapidly diniinisliing and soon will be of no value AvhatcA'cr. The EngllsJi courts huA'o at A’arious times held that there could he no property, in llic ordinary sense ill Aviiien the term is used, in a dead body ; and the interesting question now conies up whether the OAvnershij), such as it is, is vested in the person iiimsclf or iu his representatives^^_ New York Water Hiipply. rilr()oklj-n Union.] Ncav Y’'ork City has about completed improvements Avhich Avill prevent any future water famine in the city by adding 10,0(X),000 gallons of Avatcr a day to the Croton sujiply of 98,(KK),-QpO.

Hoav They Have Increased Since the Peace of Utrecht. fXew Yirk Tribiinc.J “I have recently,” responded Mr. Mulhall, “been making a close study of tlie dc^t of nations frem the treaty of Utrecht in 1713 to the present time. What lias been the increase since then ? The total national debt of the world, not estimating local debts of any kind, in 1713 was |ó95,-000,000. In 1763 thev had risen to |1,-415,0(K),000; in 179.3,‘to 12,815,000,000; in 1816, to $7,185,000,000; in 1848, to $if,24.5,000; in 1870, to $19,160,000,-000; and in 1884, I find that they have reached the aAvful aggregate of $27,1.55,000,000.” “Tlie increase then has been greater of recent years ?” “Yes, from thctreaty of Utrcclit till the French revolution, a ¡Kíriml of eighty years, the debts of nations rose $‘2,2.5(),000,000; that is almost $30,000,-000 a year. During the ensuing tAvoirty-tAvo, doAvn to the battle of Waterloo, there av as a rise of $4,340,-000,000, or nearly $200,000,000 jKir annum. From Waterloo duAvii to the present the increase lias l>eeii $20,000,-CKX),000, or almost $3ty0,(XM),(X)0 yearly. It may he fairly said that 60 jicr cent of the existing debts stand fur Avar expcnditnres, and 40 per cent for reproductive works.” “How do the debts o! the several nations of the Avorld comjiare Avilh their Avealth'f” “Tlie debt ratio to Avealth ]icr cent at the iiroseiit, is as follows: United Kingdom, 8.4 per cent; France, 11.9; Gci inany, 5.2; Biissla, 12.7; Austria, 13.8; Italy, 18.5; ¡Spain, 20.G; Portugal, 28.5; Holland, 8.4; Belgium, 9.4; Denmark, 3.0; Sweden and Norway, 2; Greece, 8.5; Europe, 10.6; the Unitcil States, '2.9; Canada, 5.0; Australia, 18.3; the Argentine Bepnhlic, 7.9; Uruguay, 14.8; lylal, 9.3. 3'he National debt of the United States, AV hen compared to the wealtli of the con lit ly, is only 2.9 per cent lower than that of any other country included ill my inquiry.” “After studying tlic subject Avhat arc your coiiciusioiis?” “1 do not sec any reason for alarm. It Avill he borne in mimt that since 1848 the increase of Avcalth in Europe has been four and a bait times greater than tlie growth of the debt. If debt goes on increasing from now till 1900 at the rate of $000,000,000 a year, and public AVcaUli at $2,700,000,000, Europe Avill be richer at the end of the century tlian at present. The conclusions Avhicli I may draAV arc four, namely: TJiat national debts are not to l)e viewed Avith siicii Jiorror as grandfathers and graiidjiioíliors entertained regarding tlicm; that they ofl'or a convenient moilc of investment for Britisli capital, and are gonurally secure; that the increase of debt iu EuroiMJ has not injured the working classes; iliat Ave may expect to sec na-llonal debts iucrcasc at least $100,-000,000 a year during the rest of the nineteenth century.” A Great Dr«>ujrlic. [Si. LouIh (jlube-Dcinocrat. Richard A. Proctor says that tlic age of the earth is placed by some at 500,000,000 years, and still others of later time, among them the Duke of Argyll, jilace it at 10,(X)0,(XX) years. None place it loAVcr than 10,000,000, knoAving Avhat processes have been gone through. The earth must liaA'o hecomo old. Newton surmised, al-(hougli he could give no reason for it, that the earth would at one time become perfectly dry. Since then it has been found that Newton Avas correct. As the earth kccjis cooling it will become porous, and great cavities Avill he formed in the interior, Avhicli Avill take in the Avatcr. It is estimated that this process is noAV in progress so fur that tlie Avater diminishes at tlic rate of the thickness of a sheet of writing pujier a year.
