"I ant weary." ahe aaid. "Lay me

ried hia child to the chamber prepared
for her with ao much care.
"It'a worse than I thought 'tw," aaid
Mr. Howlnnd, returning to the. parlor
below, where her daughter had thrown
herself with a nigh upon the ebinti coher

"He's alwaya minding other folks' busi
nesa, and so are you. I guess you'd bet

doesn't want something."
Jenny obeyed, and aa she entered her
slater's chamber, Itose lifted her head
languidly from her pillow, and pointing to
a window, which had been opened thut

Rose had heard "that horrid croaking"
more than a hundred times in Chicopce,
but In lileuwood everything most necea

Heating herself upon the foot of the bed,
abe aaid: "Why, that' the frogs. I lore
to hear them dearly. It make me feel
both sad and frnppy, just as tho crickets
do that sing under the hearth in our old
home at Chlcopec."
Jenny' whole heart was in the country
and aha could not ao well aympnthize
with her nervous, aensltlve sister, who
shrank from country sights and country
aounda. Accidentally spying some tall lo
cust branches awingiug In the evening
breeie before the east window, she again
spoke to Jenny, telling ber to look aud

"for if it does," aaid abe, "and creaks, I

After assuring her that the tree waa nil

"They'll have to climb to the top of the
tree, then," said Jenny, "for the ground
descends In every direction, and the rotid,
too, la so far away. Hesldcs that, who
Is there that wants to see you?"
Rose didn't know. Hhe was sure there
was somebody, and when Mrs. Howlnud
came up with one of the nicest little sup
pers on a small tea tray, how she waa
alioeked to find the window coveted with
her best blankets, which had been packed
away in the closet adjoining.
"Koae was afraid somebody would look
in and aee her," aaid Jenny, as she rend
ber grandmother's astonishment in ber
"Look In and sec her!" repented Mrs.
Howlnnd. "I've undressed without cur

ahe added, "set up and aee if you can't

mlneat cup of black tea you ever aee.
It'll eenamost bear up an egg."
"Sweetened with brown angar, nln't
it?" snld Rose, sipping a little of the tea.
In great distress the good old ludy re
plied that ahe wos out of white sugar,
but some folks loved brown just ns well.
"Ugh! Take It away," said Rose, "It
makes me sick, and I don't believe I etui

lief, the food rapidly disappeared, while
she alternately made fun of tho Utile
nilver spoons, her grandmother's bridal
gift, and found fault because the jelly
was not put in porcelain jars instead of
the old blue earthen teacup, tied over
with a piece of paper!
Until a late hour that night did Rose
keep the whole household on the alert,
doinp the thousand useless thing which
her nerrotti fancy prompted. Klrst the
front door, usually secured with hit of
whittle-shingle, must be nulled, "or aomix

ten-dollar bills Into Jenny' hand, whis
pered, "Taka It to pay for them thing.

On th same day when Rose Llnciln
left Huston for Glcnwood Mr, Campbell
eat In her own room, gloomy aud de
pressed. For acveral daya sh had not
been well, and beside that Klla'a engage
ment with Henry Lincoln filled her heart
with dark forebodings, for rumor aaid
that he waa unprincipled and dissipat
ed, and before giving her consent Mr.
Campbell had labored long with Klla,
who insisted that "he ss no worse than
other young men-most of them drank
occasionally, and Henry did nothing
(in thia afternoon she had again con
versed with Klla. who angrily declared
that tin would marry him even If ahe
knew he'd lie a druukard, adding. "Rut
he won't be. He loves me better than
all the world, aud I shall help hitu to re
form." "I don't believe your aister would mar

wa becoming much attached to Mary.
"I don't believe ahe would either, and
for a good reason, too," returned Klla.

can't why you should bring her up,
for be baa never been more thau polite
to her, and that he assured me waa whol
ly on my account. "
"Hue Isn't pleased with your engage
ment!" aaid Mr. Campbell, and Klla
"Well, what of that) It'a nothing to
her, aud I didn't mean ah ahould know
it, but Jenny, like a little tattler, must
needs tell her, and ao she baa read me a
two hours' sermon on the subject. Hhe

are together they look ao fuuny that I al
moat believe ahe wants him herself, but
she rau't have hlm-no, she can't have
him," and secure In the belief that ahe
was the first ami only object of Henry's
affection, Klla danced out of the room to
attend to the seamstress who waa doing
lu-r plain sewing.
After ahe was gone Mr. Campbell fell
asleep, and for the first time In many a
long year dreamed of her uld home In
Kuglalid, Hhe did not remember It her
self, but she hail ao often heard it ili-scrilH-d
by the aunt who adopted her that
now It came vividly before her mind, with
its dark stone walls, Ita spacious grounds,
terraced gardens, running vines and
creeping rosea. Something about It, too.
reminded her of what Klla had once anld
of her mother's early home, aud when
she awoke she wondered that ahe had
never questioned the child more concern
ing her parent. Hhe waa Just lying back
again upon her pillow when there waa a
gentle rap at the door, and Mary How
urd'a soft voice asked permission to come
"Yes, do," said Mre. Campbell. "I'er
hapa you can charm away my headache,
which la dreadful." T
"I'll try," answered Mary, "Hhall 1
read to you?"
"If you please; but first give me my
salts. You'll find them there in that
Mary obeyed, hut stnrted as she open
ed the drawer, for there, on the top, lay
a small, old-fashioned miniature of a fair
young chllil, so nearly resembling I'runky
that the tears Instantly came to her eyes,
"What Is It?" asked Mrs. Campbell,
and Mury replied:
"This picture ao much like brother
Krnnky. May I look at It?"
"Certainly," anld Mrs, Campbell. "That
is a picture of my lister."
For a long time Mary gazed at the
sweet, childish face, which, with Its clus
tering curls, and soft brown eyes, looked
to her so much like Fratiky. At last,
turning to Mrs. Campbell, she said, "You
must have loved ber very much. What
was her name?"
"Klla Temple," was Mrs. Campbell's
reply, and Mary Instantly exclaimed:
"Why, that was my mother' name,"
"Your mother, Mary! your mother?"
said Mrs, Campbell, starting up from her
pillow. "Rut no; It cannot bo. Your
mother Is lying in Chlcopec, and Kllu,
my sister, died in Kiiglund."
Every particle of color had left Mnry'a
face, and her eyes, now black as mid
night, stared wildly at Mrs. Campbell,
Tho kad story, which her mother hail
once told her, came bock to her mind,
bringing with It tho thought which had
so agitated her companion,
"Yes," she continued, without noticing
what Mrs. Campbell had ald, "my moth
er was Klla Temple, and she had two
aister, one her own, mid the other a
half-sister Hnrnh Fletcher and Juno
Temple both of whom came to America
many years ago."
"Tell. mo more tell me all you know,"
whispered Mrs. Campbell, grasping
Mnry'a hand; "and how It canio about
that I thought she wa dead my alater."
Upon thia point Mary could throw no
light, but of all that she had heard from
her mother sho told, and thetl Mr, Camp
bell, pointing to her writing desk, wild:
"Hring It to me. I must read that let
Mury obeyed, and taking out a much
soiled, plotted letter, Mrs. Campbell ask
ed hor to read It uloud, , It waa ua fol
lows: "Itu lighter Jniie I now take this oppor
tunity of Informing you that I've lost
your aister Klla, and have now no child

"How abort and cold!" waa Mary's first
nelKtnallon, for her Impreaslou of her
grandfather were not very agreeable,
"It Is like all hia letter." altsvvereu
Mr. Campbell, "Hut It wa cruel to
iiisk no. think Klla waa dead, for how
else could I suppose ho had lost her?"
Then, a the conviction came over bit
that Mnrv waa Indeed th child of her
own later, ahe wound her arm about her
neck, and kissing her lips, murmuriHi,
"My child-Mary. Oh, had I known this
miner, you ahould uoi hsv been ao cru
elly deserted, and little Allle ahould nev
er have died lu th almshouse, Hut you'll
never leave m now, for all tbet I havs
I your your and Kllu'."
The thought of 1011 touched a new
chord and Mr. Campbell's tr wer
rendered lea hitter by the knowledge
that he had eared for, and been mother
to, one of her aister' orphan children,
"I know now. why, from lb tlrst, 1
felt o drawn toward Klla. and why her
clear, large eyea are o much Ilk my own

Her Mr. Campbell paused, for proad
aa ah uow waa of Mary, there had been
a time when the haughty btdy tinned
away from th oler, homely little child,
who begged ao plleously "to go tslth

"Tbe diplomatic corps at rekin is
engaged in considering the Kussian
prtqiosals lor the eventual increase ot
the tariff (maritime customs). A
solution of the problem is hoped for.
The indemnity, fixed at 450,000,000
taels and 4 per cent interest, ha been
formally accepted and Japan haa
waived preferential treatment. The
formal surrender of Pckin to the Chi
nese is expected to take place on Au
gust 14." The date mentioned ia
the anniversary of the relief of the le
gittiiitieta by the international force.
The ltusaiun projioeal referred to ia
understood, in substance, to be an
incrtane from 6. per cent to 10 per
cent of the customs duties which
the Chinese government may collect
at the ports from foreign countriea.
It is further- understood that the in
crease is not to take effect at once
and perhaps not at all. It will de
pend upon the .resources of China
under the existing system. lnis

that postmasters may be hold on
their official bonds for revenue lost tb
tho department through improper
application or faulty administration
of these regulations. The pound rat
of postage, it says, is a special - privt
lege at tlie public expense and the dec
partment will restrict the privilege to
tins publictaions which are fairly
within the contemplation ot the laws
snd proHrly meet the requirements.
Owing to the material changes ot
practice which will lie necessary by
some publishers aud news agents, the
department, where it is inequitable,
will not enforce the new regulations
immediately, but will in no case ex
tend the time beyond October 1, 1901.
