Wanted at the Cross-Roada.
I was in a hurry to reach home. No
wonder, for it was the wildest eight I
had ever known in my life, and the
country road over which I took my way
ma bad and as dark as countrv rood
in general. Consequently I was walking
at a gTeai race, wim xne collar ot a rough
coat over tnv ears, when auddenlv a man
atood full in my path, and caught me by

'What the deuse am I wanted at the
Cross-roads for ? Unless I should choose
it would be hard to get me there."
But instead of producing a pistol and
demanding my money or my life, he
answered in an altered tone :
"Beg pardon! I made mistake. I
thought it was my brother and wanted to
scare him. Bad night, sir."
"Verv 1" I Mid.
"You don't know the time ?" he asked.
"It waa just seven when I left the

bly he had decided from my rough muff
lers, that I waa too poor a man to be
worth the trouble.
- But after jill, I said, probably he spoke
the truth. A man may have such a
voice without being a highwayman.
- So I went on homeward, and soon found
myself under shelter, and partaking of a
warm and savory supper.
My mother was there, and my brother
. Ben. Ben waa a great, strapping fellow,
who could beat any other boy of his age
for miles around if it came to boxing or
wrestling, and as good-humored a boy as
ever lived; a boy always with his mother,
though he had already exercised hU
right to rote in one election.
When supper was over and we had
chatted an hour or two, we went np stairs
together. We shared the same room.
The moment Ben's head touched the
pillow he always went to sleep. That
night I followed his sleepy example.
But I did not sleep without a dream
- ia which I fH a rough grip on my arm,
" and was aroused by a crying in my ear:
"Wake up you're wanted at the Cross
roads." It waa so n a!, 60 palpable, that when
I started bro:'! au-ake 1 actually believed
that some one was in the room the man
who intended the robbery or violence.
But when I lit my lamp the room was
empty, except myself and Ben, lying
snoring on his pii!.,w.
I went to the dear; it was locked. I
went to the wiuJ.w ; the rush of rain
against the panes was all I heard. I
even went across the passage to my
mother's room. She was awake. There

I again sprang from the bed and said
to Ben :
"Wake up ! did you hear a yellin ?"
"My stare !" said Ben. 'Ycllin-!

"Ben," said 1, "wait until I light the

be some one in the houso or outside.
So we lit the lamp and searched but in

him my story.
"Ben," said I, "what ia there at the
Cross-roads ?" '
He had lived in the neighborhood a
long while, and I but a short time.

trees and a fence. An old man lives

This time I started out of bed, bathed
in a cold perspiration. I trembled like
leaf, and had no doubt that I had re
ceived a supernatural warning.
"Ben " I cried, "Ben, for the third
tame I have been told that I am wanted
at the Cross-roads, and I am going."
And I began to dress myself al speed
ily as possible, listening meanwhile to
the storm, raging madder and wilder

In ten minutes we were splashing

waa perfectly dark, now and then a blaz

lamp was gleaming through the rain in
erne cottage window, but otherwise we
taoold not have been conscious of our

angle ot the roads, called in familiar
parlance the Cross-roads, was the only

not likely to meet many travelers.
All was silent as , th grave. We
stood quite still. In a moment Ben
broke out with one of his wildest laughs.
"Well," he said, "how now? Will you
go home and have another nightmare ?"
But hardly had the words escaneJ his
lips when a shriek broke on the air, and a

longed only to the girl of my vision.
Not a moment waa to be wasted.
Ben flung his weight against the slen

In The Cloak-Hoom.
There wa3 mistletoe eerywhere at
Harbingdoo Hall; it had even found its
way into the cloak-room, where the gase
lier was full of it. It wa3 Christmas
eve, so of course the mistletoe had a
right to be there; but I don't think it
ever hung over anything more fierce-looking
that niKht than the lace of Colonel
Verschoyle, a great, tall, soldier-like,
brown-bearded, brown-faced hero from
Colonel Vivian Yerschoylc, C. B. and
V. C, had done his country good service,
and laurels had boon amply heaped upon
him; he was "honorably mentioned" and
duly lauded, receiving his fill of adula
tion and adoration from all the country
round. His handsome face was as
bronzed as it well could be, but all the
mischief the African sun had done his
complexion, had not spoiled the beauty
of those deep, dark eyes, or the perfect
symmetry of those noble features.
Yes, he waa a wonderfully fine fellow,
this Abyssinian hero, and a great lion in
his way; all the girls about Harbingdon
had fallen down before his shrine and
worshipped; but their adoration was
short-lived ; it died away with a faint
struggle when they heard the gallant Col
onel was engaged to be married. It was
all up with our hero then! Abyssinia
was no longer an interesting topic ot con
versation, and I don't thiuk the Colonel
was ci nsidered so handsome as he had

The evening was more than half over,
and the Colonel was in the cloak-room, I
standing under the mistletoe, looking 1
with great, dark, anvry eves into tht
glowing fire. Let me tell you this brave t
warrior wa3 very much put out just then,
and about as angry as he could be ; you
could see he had a hot temper, and that
something had occurred to make it hotter
that ever. The Colonel was a man who
would not stand being trifled with, and
he considered that he had been trifled
within a most shameful manner; he was
there to learn the cause, and he was wait

"Meet me in the cloak-room in a quar

low, determined, hard voice, as she was
whirled away ia a wal z by a tall, dashing
young omeer, whose name the Colonel
did not know, and whose handsome face
he had not seen until a few minutes be
tore, when he caught sight of it in the
conservatory, amid orange trees and ca

lovely, laughing lips of Enid Vavasor. ;

Enid Vavasor was the only girl in a fam
ily 01 nine sons, most ot whom where in
the army, and she was the very idol of
ner aoting parents.
ila I she wascominsr now and Vivian
Verschoyle turned his haughty face to
ward her as she passed through the door
of the cloak-room. ;
Enid Vavasor, how shall I describoyou,
with your strange, fanciful name, and
your ttrangely sweet face 1 It was not in
beauty and excellence of feature she ex
celled, for beyond those rare blue eyes
she had not a single good feature, and
yet strange contradiction it was a
lovely face, and Colonel Verschoyle knew
it to his cost, as he turned to meet it with
its winsome smile, its exquisite coloring
and its halo of chestnut-brown hair, rip
piiog and waiving over the broad, low
brow. Bright scarlet holly berries shone
out amid the brown ripples with just the
faintest tovpeon of mistletoe, and another
bunch of the same Christmas berries ap
peared on the breast of that snowy dress
of softest lace. She looked almost as if
she were envelooed in a white cloud, as
she came forward and met the haughty
gaze of the Colonel bent upon on her.
A little mischievous smile parted her
coral lips. Fur a moment she looked
about to laugh outright; but she con
trolled herself ; and, looking up with a
dancing light in her blue eye, she asked,
"What is the matter ?"
Now our Abyssinian hero did not ex
pect this effrontery, so he came to the
point at once with soldier-like brevity.
"Enid Vavasor, you are a coquette
and I won't stand it ! I will not be
Of course ho meant to siy much more,
and make a longer speech, only the pretty
face looked so mocking that he stopped
short in abrupt contempt. She came a
step nearer, and for some minutes they
stood there under the great bunch of
"What have I done?" she asked.
The lovely laughing eyes were ra'sed
inquiringly to his, but as he felt the spell
her beauty was casting over him he grew
"What haw you done? What you
shall never have tho chance of doing

forth, h generally clear voice thick with
Bemember, the Colonel was madly in
love and bitterly disappointed, and the
storm in his breast, as 1 told you before,
was even hotter than the storming of
"I don't see how that can be," said
Euid, with provoking calmness, going up
to the fireplace and putting her tiny
white-slippered foot on the fender. "If
you have been made a fool of, as you say,
you must have made yourself one, Colo
The pretty lips once more wreathed
themselves into that mocking smile, and
he was beside her in one fierce stride.
"Enid," said he, "you know you have
done wrong; you hnvc played with me
long enough ; but it ends now. Look
She looked up all sweetness and sur
prise, but I think she shrank a little as
she met the blaze of passion in his eyes.
"Look here," ho continued. "Since
you have found some one else to kiss and
to flirt with, you can let me go. I have
been miserably mistaken ; but it can't be
helped now, only we had better part.
You have shown me plainly enough this
evening what you are."
"What am 1 ?" she asked, simply.
"A flirt !" he exclaimed "a heartless
flirt ! and we must part."
"Oh yes, if you wish it, I suppose we
must," said Enid; "but you have said a

very nara m.ng on me u inmg I never
heard before; and I would not stand it
now, only I see you are angry and don't
quite know what you are saying. I nev
er flirted in my life, sir I"
The sweet eyes looked into his, but he
was too irate to see their sweetness.
"You let that that fellow kiss you in
the conservatory !" he ctied. '-What
more would you have, or do I need, as a
proof of what you are ?"
lhe color came into her cheeks. "Oh,
then, you saw that, did you? she said
and she gazed down thoughtfully into the

she replied ; "and then, you see, I

She was laughing now, and her face
was flushing brightly until it looked love
her than he had ever seen it before.
Almost roughly the Colonel seized her
round white arm, and the laugh died away
on her lips. J
"Let me go," she said ; "you hurt me;
please remember you aro notin Abyssinia
now, and English people have feeliDgs."
"Then where are yours, pray ?" he
criea. "juoia Vavasor, answer inc. why
have you trifled with me ?"
His Jips were white with suppressed
passion, and, though she struggled to lrce
her arm, he held it still.
"You told me that you loved nie"
said, hoarsely. "
She smiled faintly as 6he replcd,
told you the truth, Vivian." '
"Then why have you been false
me r he asked. "Jbnid, cease this mock
ery, and tell me what you mean by your
conduct this evening ?'' he added, stamp
ing b"i3 foot until the whole room shook.
"Oh dear, you do frighten me so," said
Enid, shuddering and looking pathetic.
"I wish you would be more considerate
and not treat me as if I were a great
strong man like yourself, and could fisht
it out." . ' , v- . .
He let go her arm with a contemptuous
exclamation. She had tried him very
much, and as he had said to himself that
he was not a man to be trifled with, I
think it was wonderful he kept as calm
as he did.
"There is nothing more to be said,
then ; we had better part now, and let
the world think what it will of us." he
said, in a low, cold voice ; and Enid, who
was watching him keenly, saw how deeply
he was roused.
For a moment she hesitated, and a look
of contrition swept over her face ; the
qext instant her lips curled with the old
expression of laughing derision.
"lhe world will wonder when thev
hear Colonel Verschoyle has jilted Miss
Vavasor," she said.
"They will never hear that, and vou
know it. There shall never a word go
forth against you from my lips," he said,
"Then you give me up ? May I go
away now V she asked, like a child who
has been reprimanded. "Are we to say
good-by here ?" ' "
A little white-gloved hand wa3 offered
to him, as the sweet young face . was
raised toward his, but his heart was grow
ing bitter against her and her playful
coquetry ; so he did not take the out
stretched hand, he only bowed low and
said : "That is the best thing we can
Enid Vavasor's eyes rested upon him
for a moment as if she were about to
speak, and he waited with a heart the
quick, fierce throbs of which told him she
had only to say "forgive me" and she
would be his own once more ; but Enid
could not 8ay .it, fyr after that one long,
wavering look she simply bowed . her
young head with its crown of glory, and
weut away, and Vivian Verschoyle was
leit tnere alone underneath the mistletoe
bough in the cloak-room. Not long alone,
for presently the door was opeued quietly,
and when he turned, perhaps expecting
to see Enid again, he came face to face
with the dashing young officer, tho cause
of all this trouble a young man with
skin as bronzed as Veischoyle's own, for
he had but lately escaped from Indian
suns, and had been but two days on En
In less than a quarter of an hour after
ward you might have seen Colonel Ver
schoyle with a very different expression
on his countenance, hastily searching the
great drawing-room, his handsome fea
tures" glowing and a bright color tinging
his brown cheeks. He was looking fcr
Enid Vavasor ; but be could not fiud her
among the merry-makers and dancers.
Presently, however, he caught a glimpse
of something white in the conservatory,
amid the orange trees, and he was there
in a moment. He threw himself beside
her on the soft, low sofa, imploring for
giveness in tone of carnerst entreaty, 03
though he 'almost feared to be denied.
But it was a very sweet young face that
smiled up at him with large, loving eyes
as he caught her to litis heart," saying :
"Enid, Enid, my darling you should have
told me that he was your biother !"
Advertising Aphorisms. Judi
cious advertising always pays. -
If you have a good thing, advertise it.
If you havn't, don't.
If you don't mean to mind your own
business, it will not pay to advertise.
Never run down your opponents' goods
in public. Let him do his own adver
tising. It is as true of advertising as it is of
anything else in this world if it is worth
doiug at all, it is worth doing well.
We don't recommend advertising as
the best way to get a wife; but we know
that it is the best way to get a good trade.
You can't eat enough in one week to
last a whole year, and you can't advertise
on that, plan either.
A large advertisement once, and then
discontinued, creates the impression that
the man has fizzled.
Injudicious advertising is like fishing
where there's no fish. You must let the
lines fall in the right place.
A constant dropping will wear a rock.
Keep dropping your adveitisements on
the public and they will soon melt under
it like rock salt.
Large type isn't necessary in advertis
ing. Blind folks don't read newspapers.
If you can arouse curiosity by an ad
vertisement it is a great point gained.
The fair sex dou't hold all the curioity
iu tlie world.
Don't be afraid to invest in pribter's ink,
lest your sands of life be nearly run out.
When you advertise, see that you do
it on the same principle that you buy
goods. Get the most you can for the
How Artificial Ivouy is Made.
A scientific journal describes the process
of making artificial ivory from rubber:
Two pounds of pure rubber are dissolved
in thirty-two pounds of chloroform, and
the solution is saturated with a current
of ammonia gas.- When the rubber has
been completely bleached, the admission
of the gas is interrupted, and the mass
is transferred into a vessel provided with
a stirrer, in which it is washed wilh hot
water until the bleaching agent has been
removed. During this operation the
temperature may be increased to 185
degrees Fahrenheit, in order to evaporate
the chloroform, which by conducting it
into an apparatus ot condensation, may
again be made use of. The remaining
product forms a kind of froth, which
being pressed out, dried and again treat
ed with a small quantity of chlolorm, ; is
finally obtained as a consistent raste.
This paste is now mixed with a sufficient
quantity of finely pulverized phosphate
ot lime, or carbonate of zinc, , until it
assumes the appearance of maist flour
In this condition it is pressed in hot
molds, which it leaves sufficiently hard to
De turned, planed, fined and bored. In
order to imitate corals, pearls, enamels,
hard wood, etc., it is only necessary to
mix the paste ith the desired colors
previously to its being compressed.
