she was miserable only becauee ahe miss

Man In Ilia Iran Mask.
Tb Identity of the famous "Man In the
Iron Mask" has never been made known.
Tbe mask wna not of Iron, as has generally
been supposed, but of black velvet. The
fanciful stories of bis wearing an Iron
mask, locked behind wit lis padlock, (rained
credence during his removal to the castle
of Plgnerol lu 1U7U. During this removal
orders were given that If he revealed bla
Identity he waa to he killed on the sot In
1680 he waa again transferred, this time to
the Isle of Sulute Murguerite. During the
passage tin strictest watch wns kept that
he might not reveal himself. In im he
was again removed, this time bock to the
Bastlle, his first place of Imprisonment.
He died on Nov. ID, 1703, und was buried
next day under the iinme of Muchluti; the
place of burial, the old Cemetery of St
Paul, Paris. It is now generally aupiioaed
that "Tbe Man In the Iron Mask" waa
fount Matthioll, a minister of Charles III,
duko of Muntuu. According to the story,
Louis XIV, of France, had brllied Matthi
oll, but finding the hitter playing him
false, lured bim to the French frontier,
and then hud him secretly arrested aud im

Hurting as a Noble Work.
There are many womeu entering ths pro
fession of nursing whose sense of honor la
not high, and whose appreciation of th
dignity of labor ia not great, but who see
In nursing either tbe means of galulng a
livelihood or a way to escape from th
rather duj and petty routine of a single
girl's Ufa at borne. Tbey like the eclat of
duing a noble work and the independence
which la essential to It but are unwilling
to do more work than they can help to at
tain their desire.
Thar are, however, other women who,
In taking up nursing, often a a means of
livelihood, do so with th highest motives,
and who, In rendering themselves Inde

health was on her check, whence the ob
noxious freckles had vanished; her mouth
no longer looked too large for her face;
her greut gray eyes had taken a deeper
coloring, a warmer light; the sunburned
streaks in her brown hair hud disap
peared; Winifred Thorne had bloomed
into a piquant, unusual beauty, and her
very lameness gave her a romantic
charm. Her father's heurt, even in the
midst of the. misfortune following the
war, throbbed with a proud joy when he
looked at her. She surpassed Ins utmost
hopes this dainty creature, ull spiH,

Col. Thome had grown to love this
little lame daughter of his with a jeuluui
and exuding devotion, but Missy's regard
for her falhor did not exceed the limit of
a dutiful respect, and yet the marked
ehuiigua that she found in him apiealcd
strongly to her tenderness. He had been
gray ever since she could remember him,
but his hair was whit now, aud there
were deep lines in his face and he had
contracted a stoop that gave him an air
of feebleness, but he retained the sums
tern reticence, aud hia daughter, albeit
the waa no more afruld of him now than
of old, shrank from him still with a feel
ing that was half regret and half Impa
tience. It was Impossible for the colonel
not to see this, but it waa his way to suf
fer in silence.
Aud not only were the colonel and his
daughter changed in the momentous
years that had gone by since Winifred
was lust at home, but Thorne Hill itself
was no longer the tame. Missy found,
indeed, the same house, the same grounds,
but half the broad acres lay uutilled and
many of the familiar faces of the negroes
were missing.
"What ha become of thsra all?" she
asked her aunt
"Freedom," Miss Elvira responded,
with plaintive brevity, glancing up from
the page of Bishop Ken.
Miss Elvira was much lea changed
than Col. Thome. She till wore the
same gentle, helpless look that had
tempted the childish tyranny of her
niece, and she still read Dishop Ken
to the neglect of otiier duties. However,
she did now lay aside the cherished vol
ume long enough to give Missy some
account of the Thorne Hill slave.
"They didn't all go." she said; "the
old ones who can't do much staved, and
ouie of the most sensible signed con
tracts to work on shares. Dut we are
better off than many others. I'm sure I
don't know how your Aunt Pauline.

cluimed Miss Elvira, startled into an en
ergy of emphasis most unusuul.

'It was me wrote him a puss. And I
gave him my gold chain and bracelets
for Brer Nicholas to turn into money.
Yi hut did I care for trikets, and my
brother, my dear, dear brother, in need?"
"Winifred, you surely never did do
that?" cried Miss Elvira, aghast "Your
father's gifts!"
"I did more than that," Winifred re
turned, with a proud, sad smile. "I
tried to go to him myself."
"I trust you have grown wiser, child,"
said Miss Elvira, primly. "One rarely
meets any return for such sacriilces.
"Oh, aunt Elvira? Don't you know
that love pays itself in loving? If I did
wrong to try to run away, I bear my
punishment a life long punishment;
but I can't, I can't be sorry for the effort
I made to nud my brother."
"This Is rebellious," 6uid Miss Elvira,
reaching out her slim hand for Bishop
Ken, as for a talisman. "You oughtjto
resign yourself to his loss.
"If ho were dead, yes," stud Winifred:
"but until I know that he is dcud'Vshe
faltered, with blauching lips "Oh, aunt
Elvira, did you never know the might
of a love that is stronger thun life,

that my brother must live until I see

even Irom the grave.
"Winifred, you sh(K;k luel" said Miss
Elvira; and immediately she took refuge
in Bishop Ken, holding; the little worn
book close to her eyes as was her liuhjt,
and pretending to read, while she glanced
furtively over its top ut her irrepressible
niece. "Winifred, sighed she to her
self, "is going to laj no easier to manage

A few d,iys litter Glory-Ann visited
Thome Hill in great state. She arrived
in a hack, the recently, acquired prop
erty of Cinllhi Jim, who expected to
make a fortune out of the traveling
Mom Bee hud grown older, and she
looked more stately than ever in her
Sunday attire of black alpaca; but she
forgot her age and her dignity, and took
her nursling on her lup, and shed tears
over her.
"My po' little honey been gone all dese
years, en' I ain't sited her no mo' oniel
lie wus plum growed up? You ain' fur
got yo' ole mammy, is you, honey?"
"No; I've forgotten nothing," Wini
fred declared, between tears and laugh
ter. "You know how you used to tell
me that I should 'hone' after this old
plantation; and it all came true, I
dreamed about the blackberry patch, and
the spriug, and the cupperaong arbor;
and nothing ever tasted half so good as
your corn dodgers and buttermilk." '
"Dullaw chile, don't talk!"
"And you said once that I should never
dunce," the girl reminded her, with a sad
little smile.
"Don't luy that up beginst tue, Miss
Winifred, now don't," Glory-Ann en
treated. "Fuc' is, honey, dese ain' no
times ter be dancin', wid your paw
agittin' gray In trouble, en' Mawse Aleck
Gage done got hiase'f killed in de wall,
en' Mawse Nick ain' nuver heerd fuin"
"What has become of the Furuivals,
Mom Bee?" Missy Interrupted, suddenly.
"Gawn, honey, all on Vm!" said Glory
Ann, with solemnity. "De Lawd is done
wiped 'em clean otfen de face o' de yeth.
Mis Fumival, she done dade, natchul
lak, but de res' on 'em u men folks, en'

"Doi.t tell me any more about the

"Honey, don't you tote aorrer 'long
d' what is pas' en' gawn,"
hat he don't hullieve lie won't bullieve;
ou't you know yo' paw?"
"Then I shall inquire into this matter
myself," suid Missy, with decision.
Don t you go sen no word, Missy;
dut uin' no way fur vou ter do."
The habit of submission to Mom Bee's
huke wus not yet extinct in Missy's
breast; she blushed, she sighed, she
rung her hands in angry impatience,
hut she did not insist. "What then am
I to do?" she cried.
"Ain't I done tol' you I 'lows ter git
speech wid him bom-bye?" said Glory
Ann, reproachfully. "Why n't you wait?"
"Huven't I waited for years?" cried
Missy. "Promise me to see him to-morrow;
I will have putience until to-morrow."
"I ain' gwan back ter morrer; I'se
come on a wisit, en' I ain't in no hurry,"
Mom Bee declared.
"Oh, dearl oh. doar!" cried Winifred.
"You might coino back, you know, and
toy forever," she coaxed.
But Glory-Aim wus obdurate. There
was a certain distinction in being a
visitor at Thome Hill, and this old lady
of color was disposed to make the most
of it

The next duv came Lottie and Bess,
with their grandmother; like Mom Ben,
they came in a hired hack, for Mrs.
Herry had lieen glad to sell her carriage
and horses.
Cousin Myrtilla looked old and worn,
the more so, perhaps, that she no longer
indulged in the coquetry of dress. Her
granddaughters were young ladies now,
and it taxed her straitened resources to
the utmost to furnish their simple ward
robes. But Lottie aud Bess carried light
hearts in spite of empty purses. They
rejoiced over Missy, and they rejoiced
also over her New York outfit These
sisters had gloried in wearing homespun,
but now that the war was over they were
not proof against the attractions of silks
and velvets, and Missy's pretty dresses
offered such brilliant suggestions for
making over certain old finery their
grandmother had stored away.
Dut the cut of a sleeve, the adjustment
of a flounce, could not rivet Missy's in
terest while her heart was burning to
learn whether, by any chance, her cousins
knew anything of the stranger who had
met Nicholas.
"Oh, take ull the things home with
you, she said, impatiently. "But tell
me this, have you met I mean, do you
know anything about a stranger from
the north" And Winifred faltered
forth the information Glory-Ann had
given her.
Lot t ie aud her sister exchanged glances.
but did not speak.

He was in the Yankee army." said
Bess, with chilling brevity. "We don't
know him." And again her eyes sougjit
her sister's.
But about his meeting with Brer
Nicholas?" persisted Misav.
"Well, Miser, you know if cousin
Jasper don't concern himself alout it,
there is no reason w hv we should." said
Lottie, and she would have talked of
something else; for her cousin Nicholas
had long a0 fadis.1 out of her interest o
completely that she could not divine the
strength and the fervor of Missy' devo-1
lion. But Missy would not allow the
subject to be dismissed.
" What is his name?" she asked.
Daniel Webster I Good Cook,
Daniel Webster is the name of tbe col.
ored "pusson" who acts as porter, chef and
waiter in Austin Corbln'a sumptuous pri
vate car. tbe Oriental. He is clever In each
capacity, and Is a great favorite of Mr. Cor-
bin'a. It is as cook, bowever, mat no no
won bis greatest honors. He is. such an
adept in the culinary art that Mr. Corbin
takes particular pride In having his friends
dine with bim in his car. "Now, Daulel,"
be will often say, "I am going to bave Mr,
dine with me tomorrow. He is a gas
tronomic crank, and you must put your
best foot forward."
Duniel will thereupon grin broadly and In
dulge in a quiet chuckle that means much.
diuuer la served the uext day that
would do credit to the best hotel lu town
well selected, well cooked and daintily

possible facility for preparing aud serving
such tuasls. Perhaps Daniel's proudest
day waa the first occasion ou which he pre
pared a luncheon for Mr. John Hoey, wdo
is an Intimate friend of Mr. Corbin and a
most competent judge of good cooking,
In tbe first place be paid tbe luncheon
the compliment of eating everything that
was placed before him, and then, aa be sat

"Corbin, I suppose you bave a yearly con

'.A Trick of th Newsboy.
It was raining. - She asked bim for an
evening paper. --He drew hi coat ileev
across bis face and said: , . .. -
"Will yer have a clean one er a dirty
oner - , i
"Clean one or dirty oner Why. a clean
one of course.' . :
"All right Yer see, soma folks don't
care, an' a kid can't keep papers clean
when it sozzles all day, an' he can't sell de
dirty ones aa quick ua der clean ones, so 1
Jes' asked.'' -. ;:
He had folded th paper carefully, and
be took the peunies with "Thank yer."
Another newsboy standi ug near said:
"Hi! kids, did yer hear de style Blokey
Is sluigln'r Clean papers an dirty ones!
Why didn't yer fold de dirty ones de clean
side out un' sell'eint firatr"
"Hold on tlerel Don't you go to gettln'
fresh I I knows what I'm about"
She went on, and mused over the fact
that even dirty faced and ragged and self
brought up newsboys seemed to pick up a
sense of honor, and know Intuitively the
principles that make a success of business.
When she arrived home and opened the pa
per she discovered that the newsboy did
know exactly what be was about The pa

Th Marvelous Boy. '
Bulwer was a Spiritualist Jong before
Spiritualism became an accepted term,
which only began with the Rochester
knocking, in 1848. I dined with him when
he was living at Craven cottage, on the
banks of the Thames. Brougham was of
the party. We were to meat Alexis, then
a lad known us a clairvoyant When the
bell rang Bulwer, accompanied by two or
three of bis friends, left the room to receive
bim. In tbe hall was tbe card tray. . Bul
wer took from it a dozen or so of cards and
placed them in bis pocket
After dinner Alexis went Into a trance.
Bulwer placed bis band in his Docket and
before withdrawing it asked whose card he
held. The answer, after a brief pause, was
given correctly. Tbe experiment was re
peated at least a dozen times always cor
rectly. Alexis was a French boy who had
been but a few days in England. The cards
were all those of Englishmen. Clairvoy
ance was a term that probably most of tbe
guests there beard forth first time. S. C
