Tim (.'if I paused and looked at the
man. There was something in his pa
tent altitude that aroused her pity.

Loudon came over her. The man's eyes,
lobluc. l b ur iiikI biigbt.and the healthy
tinge of bis wholciMiiue face smote upon
i, r with a pang of xerollectioii of the
liuiiret Scottish faces she had left with
contempt for their content when she
had started forth to see life in London.
Shu went up to the man aud signed
to liim to follow her indoors, hi lie tried
toinaku him nndeistund that he bad
been rubbed. The soft, gentle tones
that answered her wete quite unintelli
gible. He smiled, shrugged his shoul
ders, spicud his bands and looked at her
with that calm trustfulness one sees iu
dugs and children.
Sho smiled, nodded, pointed up the
itairs and then ran out of the bouse.
Sht) returned with a loaf of bread and
i half pound of suusuges for him and
roll for herself. She would make that do.
He was a stranger, alone and friendless.
She put the things in his band, point
ing down tho street nsif to indicate that
the bad brought tbe things from the
buy. Ho seemed to understand, took
her hand and raised it to his lips. The
action was so simple, so grateful tbat
ho felt ashamed and ran np tbe stairs
to h r own room.
Her comfortless breakfast of a dry
roll the next morning made her a little
regretful of her charity the night be
fore. "He must shift for himself, as 1
bavo had to do," the thought, aud she
went out to her day's work.
When she returned iu the evening,
he found him stunding outside bis
door. He lowed and smiled, opened bis
door and showed bis various purchases
on his table. He bad evidently found
his way round to shops. She went up
the stairs, feeling the least little bit dis
appointed tbat be did not require ber
help any more. He seemed different
from the jaded, vulgar men aud wom
en she came in contact with in ber city
life. The air of tbe fields seemed to
cling to him still. She thought as she
toiled up the weary stairs how sweet
the country must be looking now. Was
the sun shining on the bills at borne
aud making the waters of the loch
epaikle, the bonny bills that she would
never see again? Friends were dead,
aud to a tniloresa at 13 shillings a week
it was indeed a far cry to Lock Awe.
Something was on ber table, a little
keteh of a sweep of wide hills, with fir
forests clinging to their sides, a little
cluster tif bouses with wide overhang
ing roofs and Bhutters to the windows.
A figure was standing in tho doorway
of ouo of the houses.
"That is his bouse," said Jeanie to
herself. "What a funny thing to do, to
give mo a picture of it! I wish 1 could
end him back one of Loch Aweand our
bouso up on the braes."
The next day was Sunday. She uhu-
lly passed the morning in bed, tired
out with her week's work. When she
emtio down ifboutthe middloof the day,
he met him coming In, evidently in his
Sunday best. Could he have been to
church? Well, it was clear be bad not

She tried to express ber thanks by
looks and smiles. He seemed to under
stand and laughed, and then she felt
ith a quick touch of dismay tbat be
Itlanced in surprise at her untidy dress

herself until afternoons; then in an
euurmous bat and feathers and much
becurled head she nerambiilated the ad

Ber acquaintance, not yet vicious, only

her hands were grimy, her face un

They did not meet again during tbe
eek, but next Sunday morning found
Jeanie with her hair out of papers and
her hands washed. She was loitering at
the street corner when became back in
hi sprnce clothes. She gave him a

biui bow she spent ber Sunday evenings.
The weather became very hot. Jeanie
drooped more and more in tbe unhealthy
Workroom and stuffy streets. He seemed
to notice It, for on one Saturday Eignt
sue found a drawing of trees and a path I
and figares walking about, aud under
neath the figures 2:30. Could he beask
lug ber to go for a walk? She waited
in to see.
At 2:80 a knock came at her door.
There he wus, with his square, ngly,
goon namre.1 race smiling at ber. She
felt awkward going down thestairs with
him. What could they do during a
whole walk if neither could speak to
But tbat walk did not take nlacn.
The miart tie around her neck had beeu
the price of ber dinner. She turned
faint and reeled, then sat down on the
stairs and burst into tears.
She hardly knew if she was vexed or
pleased to rind herself picked up like a
baby and carried np to her own room
and laid njion her bed. She sat up and
drank tome water, while he stood look

that he should see ber untidy, disorder

She wan too ill to get it down to bim.
She pushed it out and trusted that be

morning come np again, and then she
heard no mote, for the fever seized upon
ber, and when next she woke to con
sciousness she was lying ou a hospital
bed. For duys she was too weak to
speak or think, but when she was able
one of tbe nurses asked ber if she would
like to see Home papers which had been
brought to tbe hospital for ber, and the
unrse spread them out before her.
The first wus of a man following a
stretcher through the streets, then the
same man Kitting alone in a solitary
room with liis head bowed upon bis hand
and weeping; the next, the same man
at a door, evidently asking questions of
a porter within; the next, the man was

The next one represented the man
with the book in bis band.
The next showed the wan in a train,
and then on board a steumer, and then

And she turned to the next. The man
was at the hospital door.

There are a few tHsiple who believe thai
electric lights possess great curative pow
ers. It is known tbat the transmission of
the electrlo current through the atmos-
ihere converts the oxygen into ozone. A

tablished facts as these the electricians
lutae their claims Hint the electric light
has a curative pniis-rty. When tbe rays
are directed from a prosrly devised ap

ors are adjusted so that (he electrlo light
Is thrown lo thst place alone.
If general treatment as well as local an-
illratiou Is wnutcd, the patient sits with
his bark to tho apparatus. The spec-lllo
rays are thrown upon the diseased spot,

lights are employed for d liferent diseases.
For some rases the electric light Is thrown

for results on tbe nervous system the color

Much of tho beauty of the stars de
pends upon their scintillation. Ths
multitudinous flashing of their tiny
rays gives a wonderful life and bril
liancy to a winter s night, lue grest
itar Hlrlus excites the most admiration
when near the horizon be coruscates
with raiulHiw hues, lint the astronomer -would
be glad if be could put a stop to
the scintillating of the stars. That na
iteadluess of their light is one of the
chief obstacles bo has to overcome iu
Undying them witb the telescope.
Scintillation has generally keen re
garded as due only to slight disturb
ances In the atmosphere. Hut as recent
observations havo shown that red stars
cintilluto less than white ones it baa
boon suggested that tho causes of some
of the essential differences in the scin
tillations of diffeient stars may be in
the stars themselves. There is no
doubt, however, that the main cause of
scintillation dopeudsupon tbe conditiou
of tho sir.
Most people suppose that when tbe
stars appear to lose their liveliness of
light and shine without twinkling as
minute bright points in tbe sky fair
weather Is in prospect. Studios lately
made lu France and Switzerland seem
tocontradict this popular belief. It has
been found there that when the stars
sre feeble In their scintillations foul
weather Is at band. The night before
a most violent storm In Franco, for In
stance, the stars bung so quietly iu tbe
sky that they seemed to bave entirely
lost their scintillating power.
This Is said to be only one Instance
among many which show tbat an un
usual steadiness in the light of the stars
precedes the appearance of storms.
A Story nf Everts.
When Mr. Evarta was called to Wash
ington by President Hayes as secretary
of state, his predecessor, Secretary Fish,
gave a dinner in bis honor. Mrs. Fish
waa seated at Mr. Evarts' right band.
During a lull In the conversation Mrs.
Fish turned to Mr. Evarta, speaking so
clearly as to be board even at the foot
of the table, saying, "Mr. Evarts, I
understand that you have sent two of
your sous to college."
"Yea. Mrs. Flab."
"They are twin brothers, ire tbey
not, Mr. Evartsf"
"Yes, and they bave been playmatei
aud schoolmates until now."
"But is it true tbat you sent oue to
Harvard and the other to Yale, al
though you are a Yale graduate your
self?" "Ys, It is quitotrue."
"Then I supKwe you bave done that,
Mr. Evsrts, so that each of them can

Here Mr. Evarts looked curiously at
Mrs. Fish for an Instant aud then said
