It was a favorite jest, ujiou old Farmer Colliugwood’s farm, to call Joe Ellison Susy’s admirer. And Susy, when she heard the half taunting joke, only smiled softly, and at their next meeting only gave Joe a kinder word cr a sweeter smile. She was the orphaned daughter of a country clergyman, whole sole legacy to her had been tlie best education Ids own profound learning enabled him to give her. When she was but a little girl her mother died, and she liad been her father’^ housekeeper, wholar and companion until her nineleenfh birthitáy, when the llev. Stephen Coyle was likewise taken truni the child to Ids last, long i^st. The goml [leoplo of the parish, knowing Susy’s advantages for study, had put her at the head of the district stdiMol, ami her old home being the parsonage, she had removed her personal {>ossossion.s ami taken u[) her abode at Farmer CollingwocKl’s, he having for years “boarded” tlic school ma’am. It was a merry, liappy farmer’s household where-Susy lived. Julia and Mollic Colliiigwood were strong-armed, blooming damsels, full of coquellish grace, and with loud voices and active liablts. Charlie ami James, the sons, wei-e line si>eciiueu6of young farmers, ami the old man and lii.s wife were kind-licarted, homely countryfolk. Hilt the yonng girl, brought up in her father’s study, Ids coiiipaidon for years, had developed more menial ^han physical strength, was shy in manner, ivservcd in sjicech, and craved intellectual food entirely out of her power to old aim She was slight in ligure, with large black eyes, delicate teaiures, a pure, colorle.ss complexion, and ina.s.ses of mit-brown liair. The parsonage liavlng always had a servant, Susy's little hands were unspoiled by rough Work, ami besiile the rosy-cheokml, blue^yed Colliiigwood girls she looked like a little pale nun, her deep mourning contrasting strongly with tlicir gay attire, with all the colors of the rainbow struggling for supremacy. She had been but a little time in her position as instructress to the tow headed youngstiM's of Hrentllill, wlieii coming up the road from school latí; on a summer’s afternoon, she heard wailing ami groans in one of the cottages, where often before she hadlieard the same sounds. “Poor Joel” she wlii«i>cred pitifully. For she know a deformed idiot was being beaten by a cruel task-niastcr. But on that atternoon, as she drow near the cottage the door suddenly flew open, and the idiot liiuiied, howi-invT and s)>ccding as fast as his in-flnnities allowed out at the opening, while following him a strong, brutal man, half drunk, flourished an iin-mensc cowldde. TTie man, cursing and held the whip over the shrinking lad, hut wlieii struck not Joe, but Sii.-fy, over him, one arm raisctl to ward off the blow. Brute as he was, tiie half-dniiikeii wretcli stood aghast wlien the heavy lash cut across Busy’s slender arm and shoulders. “I beg pardon, ma’am,” he said, “I did not see you was in the way.” “Uow can you ?” she cried, her pale cheeks crimson with womanly indignation—“how can yon, a strong man, strike a i>oor boy like that—a boy whose i lid nil i ties sliouid apiieal for protection to any man wlio was not an arrant coward ?” “Well, conic now, that’s pretty strong,” said tlie man. “Don’t I feed and lodge him for what he docs, and ain’t I got a right to beat him if ho does everything wrong? He don’t earn liis salt, he don’t.” “Doii’t keep him, then.” “I guess you’re right. 1 won’t. Joe, you may go to the mischief, but don’t conic hero again.” So saying, the idiot’s tormentor turned on his heel and re-entcivd his house, shutting and noisily bolting hi.s door. Susy stood halt terrified at tlio result of her well-meant interference. Joe was a waif from the almshouse, lame, deformed, idiotic, and she had deprived lilm of liis only ref-ugc. “Oh, Joe,” she said, crying, “I am so sorry 1 What will you do?” Hut joe was only able to realize that his brutal tnskinastcr had ceased to bi*at him, ami that h long, red welt across Susy’s hand had fallen there u|)on its way to his cowering dioul-der. He only [loiuted to the mark, half crying: “It was better for me to take it as youl” ho said, whiiniM'ting; “the pretty white hand I Oh, Jw; is sorry von got before him. Joe don’t mind boating!” All ilic elilvalry In the poor dull h;aln asserted itseíf in that siiecch, for Joe did mind a beating very much. “You can’t stay here in the road all night,” «aid Susy- “Como with me and I will ask Mr. Colliugwood to give yon a place to sleep.” The good pco[de at the farm looked I at her astonished when Susy aji-leared, followed by the «loo imping figuro of the village Hut the fanner broke into hearty laughter when she told of licr interference and begged a aheltor for Uie boy. “Stay here? Ofconrflc ho can stay here,” he «aid. “Wc’ll find flomethink Kwcanng. cowering, it fell it who bent lining, idiot. for the poor begg.'ir to do. But to think of your spunking up to Bob Carter after that fashion, I’d ha’ given my best cow to see it. A little white bantam pecking a mad bull would be nothing to it. And he run oft’. Well! Weil! Here, Charlie, show Joe the room over the barn. He can sleep there, and he’ll soon learn where to come tC'meals.” *0 the idiot found his hard bed on the floor rejilaced by the cosy barn chanibor; his scanty food exchanged for generous plenty; and for blows, kicks and curses, hai*d work overtasking his brain, he had kindly words and light labor suited to his com prehension. And under this troatment he brightened visibly, performing his simple task willingly ami well. When winter came, Susy herself altered a suit and overcoat of her father’s to clothe the boy comfortably for the cold weather, and knit him scarf, cap and mittens. She never passed him without a word of encouragement ami kindness, and in his darkened mind the fair, sweet face stood for a religion, something to be worshipped, poor Joo’s special Providence. He never forgot the falling of the cruel lash upon her slender figure bent to protect him, and he understood [lerfectly that Susy’s intercession had procured for him his happy, comfortable home. And his gratitude expressed itself in such offerings as wero within his reach—bomiuets of wild flowers, clusters of delicate ferns he knew she loved, baskets of wild cherries or nuts, and an eager offer to lift any obstacle trom her path. .Ami the goixl-naturod, jesting country folks called jioor Joe Susy’s admirer. Hut while winter snows were yet upon the ground there came to Brent lini a new clergyman, one Cyrus Poi-tinan, who had been a niiiiil of Susy’s father when he was a youth of niiietccii, she a child of twelve. Having tilted liiniself for college umler (he llev. Stephen Coyle’s instructions he had gone to Harvard, had studied for the pulpit, and, having preached in Boston, had accepted a call to Brent Hill. It was quite natural that he should seek Susy, and the old 'servant at the parsonage was warm in her jiraises. He was a wealthy man, having inherited a fortune from his father, and he was cTigcr to help the iioor of the parish. Susy, having the cliildron under her control, was able to jKiint out to him many avenues for his charity, and thus added another link to the associations that bound them together. He was a grave, studious man, refined in taste, and of quiet manner, and ho shrank a little from the noisy deinonstrations of tho country people around him. It rested him, after a round of calls or the services of the Sabbath, to talk with Susy, to hear her low, sweet voice, and sec her quiet, refined luovciuouts. He heard of the gentle charities she performed whenever he was in the cottages of the very poor, and memory told him what a little household fairy she had been, even when a child. So in the winter evenings, in the spring walks, he let his heart go out to Susy, and gather her itnage Into its deepest recesses, while she, nnoon-scious of her own secret, felt that there was no happiness so profound as Cyrus brought by his mere presence. It was a quiet, uneventful courting for six long months, but it bound two hearts firmly together ft r life. And Joe, looking on, understood vaguely that Susy was happy when Cyrus was near, that a service pcr-fbVnied for Cyrus pleased Susv as well. Ami as events progressed he understood that Cyrus would one day take Susy to tlic parsonage as his wife, and that Susy would be happy there. All this was firiuly rooted in [Kior Joe’» clouded bruin, ami he knew that trouble to Cyius would be sore grief also to Susy. So, with an allegiance that was touching, Joe transferred some of his devotion to iho young clergyinaii, and when he was at the farm'would mutter often: “Susy likes him, Joe must he good to him, because Susy likes him.” Ho was grutcfui for the kimlly words of Cyrus, tils many gifts of clothing ami money; hut the groat claim that ho hold over Joe was the fact that to please him was to give Susy pleasure. Summer simshine was riiienlno the grain, ami the berries wero in ripest clusters, wlicn Susy had an entire mouth of Icisiiro for tho schmil holiday, ami (!yrus won from her a promise to resign her place and be his wife in Sc))tcmbcr. Her simple outfit became her daily task, ami the Colliiigwoods lent willing hands to preñare for the wedding. Joe was made entirely happy by a itroinisc of a hcineat the parsonage, and the long summer days seemeil too short for the happiness that tilled them. It was nearly two miles from the parsonage to the (Jiillingwood farm, Imt there were few evenings when Cyrtis failed to walk from his house to Susy’s for an hour or two of the sweet companionship ho loved. his way led Win through a lonely stretch of country, wliero the farms wero scattered far apart, for Mr. Col-lingwood had bought a farm at sonie di dance from the village. By what instinct Joo knew that there might be danger lurking in the road I can not explain, but it became hi* habit, solely of hlg owu will to fol low Cvrus Poltman out of sight himself, till he saw him safely within his house, ami thou limp back again to his own barn chamber. It may have been that the talk of the farm hands about some of the crimes peiqictrated by tramps conveyed a warning to his weakened mind. But whatever the motive, he was constant in his unsuspected attendance. The Key. Cyrus Portnian, secure of his peace in the love of hi.s congregation, thinking his village home ever secure from danger of robbery, or even the fear of theft, was careless of the fact that it was known he carried about him large sums of money. He drew his income quarterly from a Boston bank, and was apt to carry large rolls of bank notes in his pocket-book, ready tor his own cxjienses and charities. Ho W'ore diamond studs and finger ring and a heavy gold wati;h and chain. All these facts beconiftig known to Bob Carter, Joe’s old tormentor, led to the fact that proved the idiot’s deepest devotion to Susy. One of the tramps seeking eiiiploymeiit at Brent Hill, proving a genial companion for Bob Carter in his drinking frolics and idle life, became his guest, and the two, under the influence of liquor, resolved to rob the parson. “He’s bound to have a i>ockct full of money,” Bob said, “and we’re half starved! We’ll make it more equal like!’’ So it befell that one August ni^dit, when there was 110 moon, Joe, faithfully trudging upon his self appointed task of seeing Susy’s lover safe in his owu home, saw two nieu sjiring upon him as lie passed a high hedge. Taken entirely by surprise, Cyrus Portrnan turned to his assailants and fought for his jiosscsioiis with the courage of a truly brave man. But they wero two to one, and had thrown him down, when Bob Carter, lifting a formidable club of wood, ordered liim to give up bis money and watch. Instead of complying he struggled more fiercely to free himself from the grasp of the other ruffian. “Y'ou will have it, then,” growled Bob, lifting tlie club, and surely there w ould have been an end of all Susy’s dreams ot happiness, had not Joe, w ith a cry utterly indescribable, flnnji himself between the heavy murderous weapon and Cyrus Portrnan. Down came the wood with a-sick-ciiing crash upon the idiot's buck and head, and Cyrus Povtmaii, with a sudden wrench, freed himself as Jlic tramp dodged back to avoid Uic blows. At this moment the voices of a party of village merry-makers w’erc heard coming up the road, and the W'ould-be robbers and assassins turned and fled. The calls of the clergjuiiaii hurried tho steps of the farmer lads coming home, and the well-known voices of the Colliiigwood boys were soon heard ill eager exclamations. In hurried words the young clergyman explained the situation. “Poor Joe!” he said, looking up as he knelt to examine the prostrate boily. “I am afraid his devotion has cost him his litc. I cau not feel his heart Ijcat.” “We’ll carry him liome,” Charlie Colliiigwood said. “Come, boys, it is not half a mile to the farm.” Willing, strong hands lifted the insensible figure, and tenderly poor Joe was carried to tlie farm again. Susy, sitting still iiiMiii the’ wide porch, thinking of her lover, saw the procession enter the gate, and ran quickly down the path. Her tears fell fast as Cyrus t(dd his sad tale, but she opened the door of the spare room ¿11 the lower floor, awakened Mrs. Colliiigwood, brought liglits, water and bandages, wliilc James saddled a horse and rode back to the village for the doctor. But doctors couid not help poor Joe; the blow was a death blow, and before morning there was o*;ly a cold, still form where the poor idiot’s life had existed. But before he died he was brought back to conseiousnoss, to know Susy was bending over him, h«.*r tears dropping fast upon his white, death-stricken face. “Don’t cry,” Le whispered faintly. “It was because you love him. I didn’t forget,” he said, while a smile l)«-ighteued his poor face, “.loe didn’t forget when yon took a lashing for him. Joe rcmemlierod. And he put his head under Bob Carter’s clnb to save the iinrson. Is the parson here?” “Yes, Joe, 1 am here.’’ “All alive, and Joe did it! Joe did it for Susy And 80, with Susy’s name upon his lil)s, poor Joe died. Funner Nivk'a K(;Areci'«w, BV NOUA K. CRUMBY.

OiBccrs And Queen’s Dependents of EstAblisliment. the [Now York Sun.I The Queen’s Court is composed of ofticcrs, subordinates, and attendants to the nunihcr oí nearly a thousand, the majority receiving salaries that may be called more than liberal. First and foremost comes the Lord Stowai’d, whose offlco is a jiolitical one, in the gift of tho existing Ministry ; his salary is $10,000 a year. He is the principal officer of the court, and has jurisdiction over the entire household. All officers and servants connected with the court, excepting those of the Queen’s chamber, chapel and stable, arc subject to his orders. Ho api>ears at court on all state occasions, and the subordinate officials of the household are ap]M>iutc(t by him. The active duties ot the Lord Steward are iierformcd by the ^Master of the Household, whose constant residence is within the precincts of the palace. Necessarily he has a large staff of officers to assist him, having full control over the domestic establishment. The salary of the Master is $.Á,7ÍK) a year, and íiis private secretary receives $l,r)00 a year. The Lord Treasurer ranks next to the Ixird Steward, acts for him at all state ceremonies in case he is absent, and dniws$4,520 a year; while to assist him he lias the Com[»trollcr of the Household, who also is paid $4,520 and likewise does nothing. Tiie Board of O'rccn Cloth is composed of the four above mentioned of-fiidals and adjudicates on otfenses committed in certain parts of the [lalaco. To assist them in their onerous duties, they have a secretary at $1,.500 a year, tíircc accounting clerks at $1,000 a year each, divers other clerks to (he mimbcr of six, and one female assistant. The clerk of the kitchen is an important functionary, evidenced by tho fact that he gets $:i,500 a year and “found.” Under l^i ho has seven clerks to keep acednnts, cheek goods as they are received, and give the necessary orders to tlie tradcs-peoplc. The chief receives $.{,500 a year, and his four assistant cooks $1,750 each, with tlie privilege of eacli taking an apiu'cuHcc, the latter haviug to jmy ««. premium of about $1,(X)0.

Tiie head of the eonfe<dionery department of the kitchen receives $l,5(X) yearly, and his assistant $1,2."»0, they having six assistants; in addition there are the pastry cook and baker, w'itli four assiltants, and three women having charge of the cofl'ee room. The linen is looked after in the “ewer” department, consisting of a yeoman and two assistants. The chief butler receives $2,500 a year. He holds an important position, inasmuch as he selects and buys all the w incs used in the royal household. To inopeily arrange the table before the Queen’s dinner is served there arc two inlncipal table deckers with $1,000 a year each, a second table decker at.$750, a third at $150, and an assistant with $2C0. The least liberal salaries probably are those paid to the three yeomen having charge of the plate pantry, whose united salaries amount to but $2,150, while tho valuables intrusted to their care are estimated to be worth from $10,000,000 to $15,000,000. They have six assistants. The care of Her Maj(‘sty’s coals must he un arduous fluty, as it is intrusted to 110 Ics.i tliaii thirteen persons. The first and second lamp ll'ditcrs receive $5(X) a year caeli and board money, and liuve seven assistants. Tlio Court of tlie Marshalsea is a regular court of justice attached to Mie Queen’s household, having juris* fliclion over all |»laees within twelve miles from Whitehall. The liord .Steward is tho Judge, the tunction of (he court being to aitminister justice between the Queen’s domestic servants. This court was established by Henry VllL,and now costs the nation $0,()20 a year, not including llio salary of the chief of the jioliec of this court (who is called Knight Marshal), $2,500 a year, and liiscigtit assistants, with $.1¡(X) a year each. Oil Maundy Thursday of e.vidi year, anil twice a year in íácotlund Yard, :iliiis are distributed to the poor. The almonry is the office that looks after these distrihntions, the two principal ofiicers of which are calle*! the Hereditary Grand Almoner and tho Lord High Almoner. Both otlices un* lioiioiary^ but they have a secretary, who receives$1,750 a year, about the amount distributed to the jioor on Maundy Thursday. Tho i.oril Chamberluin receive$10,-0:10 a year and the Vice (’liaiuberlain $1,020. They siiperinteml all tho of-llcers and servants belonging to the (¿uecn’K chambers, except the bed chuiiibci'H, these being under the groom of the stole, as well as the offi-cera of the wardrobe. All entertainments given in the palace are iimler their caro, and they have to audit all accounts connected witli royal luur-riagCH, coronations, funeral.s, &e. To assist (ho Chamberluin thero are a comptroller of areoiints, an inspector of aeeounts, three clerks and four messeiigerH, their uulted salaries amouiiliiig to $15,550.
