On afternoon about th middle ot
July, aa Mra. Perkina wai seated by her
front window engaged in "stitching
ehoet," a very common employment In
aome parts of New England, her atten
tion waa anddealy diverted by a tall,
tylish-looklng young man, who, driving
hla handsome borne and buggy under
the shadow of the apple tree, alighted
and entered into conversation with a
gronp of little girls wbo were taking their
usual recess. Mm. Perkins' curiosity was
aroused, and Bally Ann was called to
ae who the stranger waa. But for a
wonder Sally Ann didn't know, though
ah "guessed th boss waa one of the
East Chicopee livery."
"U.'t tnlkln' to Udriy Knight," aaid
ahe, at the same time holding back the
curtain and stepping aside so aa not to
"be visible herself.

whispered Mra. Perkins; but a clasa of'
boys in the school house Just then struck
Into the multiplication table, thns effec
tually drowning anything which Bally
Ann might otherwise bav heard.
t t "I know them children will split their
throats. Can't they hold np a minute,"
'exclaimed Mra.' Perkins, greatly annoyed
at being thus prevented from overhearing
a Conversation the natute of which ahe
oonld not erep gneaa. .

"No, she never scolds," said Delia

ahe show them a great deal," -'
"She's real white, too," rejoined Lydla
Knight, "though pa says she used to be

Here there was a gentle' rap Upon the
window, and the girls, starting off, ex

"May. 'gOftrtd?'" asked the stranger,
following them tp the door. "Introduce

' Lydla had never Introduced anybody In
her life, and, following her companions to
her seat, ahe left Mr. Stuart standing in
the doorway. With her usual politeness,
Mary came forward and received the

Maaoa good-night, Mary bop you'v

The moment b waa gone Mary ran np
to her room to read her letter, from
which w glr th fallowing extract:
"You must hav forgotten Ueoag Mora
land, or you would bav mentioned him
to me. I ilk him very much, Indeed, and
yet I could not help feeling a llttl Jealoua
when he manifested ao much Interest lu
you. Sometime, Mary, I think that for
a brother, I am getting too eelflah, and I
do not wiah anyone to Ilk you except
myeelf, bnt I surely need not feel o to
ward George, th beat friend I bav In
Boston. He I very kind, lending me
books, and baa even offered to us bis In
fluence In getting m a situation In otw
of the best law offices In the city."
After reading thia letter Mary aat for
a long time thinking of Ueorg Morelatid
ot the time when ab first knew him
of all that William Bender had been to
her since and wondering, aa girla some
times will, which ahe liked th best. Billy
unquestionably had tha strougest claim
to her lov. but could h hav known
bow much aatlsfactlon ah felt la think
ing that George still remembered and felt
Interested in her h would hav had some
reason for fearing, aa he occasionally did,
tkat aha would never be to him aught
aavt a titter.
The summer wa drawing to a close,
and with It Mary'a school. She had suc
ceeded In giving satisfaction to the en
tire district Mr. Knight, with whom
Mary was a great favorite, offered her
the school for th coming winter, but ahe
had decided npon attending school her
self, and after modestly declining bis of-,
fer, told him of her Intention.
"But wbera's the money coming from?"
aaid be. . .
- Mary laughingly aaked him how many
bags of shoes he supposed sh had stitch
ed during th laat two years.
"More'n two hundred, I'll bet," said bt.
"Not quit aa muny aa that," answered
Mary; "but still I have managed to earn
my clothes and thirty dollars besides; and
this, together with my school wages, will
pay for one term and part of another."
"Well, go ahead," returned Mr. Knight.
"I'd help you It I could. Go ahead; and
who know but you'll on day be the
president's wife." " .
When Widow Perkins beard that Mary
was going away to school she forgot to
put any yeast In the bread which aba was
making, and, bidding Sally Ann "watch It
until It rlx," sh posted off to Mra. Ma
son's to Intulre the particulars, reckoning
up as she went along how much fourteen
weeks' wages would coma to at nln shil
lings per week.
But with all her qulning and "pump
ing," t Judith called It, she waa un
able to ascertain anything of importance,
and, mentally styling Mrs. Mason, Mary,
Judith and all "great gumpheads," sh
returned home and relieved Salty Ann
from her watch over nnlearcned brd.
Both Mrs. Mason and Mary laoghed
heartily at the wldow'a furiosity, though,
as Mary said, "It waa no laughing mat
ter wher th money was to torn frwa
which ah needed tor hrr hooks and cloth
ing." Everything which Mrs, Maaoa rould
do ft her ak did, aad ra Judith, who
waa never famous for grurroslty, brought
la on Hatunlay morning a half-worn

Hew Bprt)tloa Cleveland Woaeo

A number of Cleveland women had a
llttl discussion th other day over a
new form of hoodoo, at leaat It wa new
to most of them. It Is a species of
applied Incantation that It resorted to
ay tenants wbo want to get even with
th landlord or th landlord's agent.
When they leave, after the last load Is
ready to start, they throw salt behind
ths front door. That hoodoot the bouse,
or the apart uientt.
Why," aaid on lady, "I know a cat
where the outgoing tenaat did that and
they couldn't rent th room tor thre
months. Tbat'a right Nobody seemed
to went them. ' Tb. agent was con
UtRiitly kept busy running with pros
pective teuants who cam to look at
th: apartments, only to refua them."
"I heard of a cast," said another lady,
"wher th landlord raised the rent on
a family, and when they ; left . they ,
threw salt behind the door, and you
never heard of auch luck as the, land
lord had. lie got tenants in that
wouldn't pay and he'd hav to sue 'em
snd put 'em out on the sidewalk and.
one tenant set the room afire with a
gasoline stov and the landlord couldn't ,
get any Insurauce, aud tbe'wlvea of
two tenantg presented their husbands
with twins and .this cost the landlord
tour months' rent, .'cause he couldn't
got 'em moved until they reached th
movghle age. It wai just awful!"
"Ou,h ther are lots of such cases.
said the woman who mentioned th
hoodoo first. '"And they say ther Is
but on way to break the spell," .:
"And bow Is that?" cried the other
women In chorus. , . .)'
"Th landlord,", .replied th hoodoo
expert, "must bav th hinges of th

What "Sardonic Smile" Means.
The origin of many of our common
wnnta makes an Interesting study. We
often bear lu conversation or rend lu
books a lo t a sardonic smile or a sar
donic rrln. but we never slop to think
that "sardonic" Is derived' from the
name of an Island In the Mediterranean
S..a-8ardlula. There grows' In Sar
dinia a certain plaut which when eaten
pucker the face of the ater Into a
peculiar expression resembling a smile
From the irrln caused by eating of the
Sardinian plant a smile that a person's
face sometimes wears, wtticu, as vteo-
stcr's dictionary says, "gjves the ap
pearance of mirth or happiness, but
covering pain or misery" Is said to be
sardonic. 4 ''"' "
