When I I.'mu to like Ro-e Ilmld so

He ivii. Jive L..r , older than I, ; plain
man of twenty-nine, witli faint sears on
his face, and a b ild .-pot on the middle of
his head. A poor m in, studying medi
cine late in life, beeau-e he had not been
able to study in his youth, only hoping
lor Ins diploma in ;i year, with the prac
tice nil in the future; and I, at twenty
four,! tad the' Mosswoo 1 estate for my own,
and money enough to live on comfortably.
There could be no coiup n ison drawn be
tween us, I fondly hoped, that would not
be favorable to me; and I, coolly, though
politely, took inv place before him and
cut him out on all occasions with 11 se
bud. I, young and rich and h indsome,
and, as 1. .supposed, elegantly dressed ; lie,
phtin, poor and habby, Iookingten vears
older than he really was. What chance

And so he slipped ijuietly into the
'backgroli nd, and 1 made 1 ve to Uich:ld,
. ami one day kissed her on the cheek, and
told her iife would not be worth hav

said nothing, but out blushed all the roses,
and let t.ie kiss her again. After that we
walked bodily ann-in-ann through the
village, and friends teased me and the
other beaux dropped avvay, and one day I
gave her a ling t- wear on her left-hand
Two week- from that day I went to
London on business. I intended to stay
a week, but I was so successful that I re
mained longer; liuaily I went into busi
ness in the city, :uid began to know peo
ple. I vi-hed at the houses of wealthy
merehants,und met their u ives and daugh
ters, and by degrees begin to iiudcr.-t-ind
that, though my rosebud w;ts very f air
and sweet, shir, was not a hot-house tl.nver.
In other words, her dress wu- not like the
dress of a fashionable hello; hir manners
were homespun, her education poor. She
was very good excessively good, but not
an elegant lady. Then, too, she sent mo
notes in big bull' envelopes, and Used lit
tle "iV for the pvr.-oiml pronoun, which
should have been honored by the caoi

And Farmer Uudd, with his uncouth
coats and wonderful hats and long, strag
gling beard and hairT was not the sort of
father-in-law that I j-hould admire; and
there was Miss Hannover. IVrhaps that
fact was the most werful one of all the
workings of my disenchantment; for Miss
Hannover was beautiful, all millinery and
Upholstery; and I'apa Hannover was
called I'rince Hannover, by his friends,
and had his dinner table set for forty every
day, and wore a fortune in diamonds on
his bottom, $ml made friends wherever he
went by Ids lavish gifts, ami was the
"greatest stock gambler in London.
Papa Hannover had Mailed on m and
counselled me how to invest, and had
dined me w ith his daily forty friends, and
had said, " Violette, love, this is Mr.
Markham, one of those country gentle
men of whom we are trying to make city
And Violette had smiled radiantly
upor me.
Since then how many tcte-a-tetea had I
not had with her how many rides? I
was learning to dance with her, and had
forgotten to write to It sebud for two
weeks. Then came an anxious little note
on thin blue paper, beginning thus:
"Dear Henhy I take up my pen in hand
raiu-U troubled iu my niiud regarding you i
Wuow you would write If you was not Biek
O, Henry, if you are sick do tellygrafTand let
father come up and see you. Jlenry, i will
not write any more nntil i hear from yoa I
nm too troubled in my mind. W'e are all well
nnd in the hope that you Will enjoy the same
lleasiuj(s i remain , "Your truly,
. . , IiOSB BCDT.
, T. S.-Dr let pa come If you are sick. I
. am so troubled iu my mind."
I hastened to reply, the awful dread of
Mr. I'udd's fatherly care hanging over
me.soto speak, by asiiiglc hair. I wrote to
Uose, hut how? I shall not copy that cow
ardly letter here. When it was in the box
I did try to fish it out again, but it was
too late. It had gone, and its termina
tion, " I'll inks, Miss liudd, for your friend
ly anxiety concerning my health; I am
sure .Mr. Uudd does not share it," was
perhaps the worst of all the lines, by
which I told her, not in frank, honest
words, but in a manner that no woman
could fail to understand that I did not
choose to remember that we were be
trothed. After that no more letters in yellow en
velopes came to trouble me, and I paid
attention to Miss Hannover, and invested
my money according to Hannover's ad
vice. And days and weeks and mouths
rolled by, ami if a thought of my little
II osebud, fading because the sunlight of
my love was withdrawn from it, crossed
my mind, I drove it away with a sigh. I
could not help it, I said; it was fate.
F,-te meant me for Miss Hannover, for
Violette, and we had met that was all.
Xo, not quite all; one day I remember
it was the day after a splendid ball, and
I called on Violette, whose escort I had
been the night before one day I made
this latter statement to Violette Hannover,
and she, having heard it, bestowed
upon me her most aristocratic stare, and
asked me if I did not know that she had
been engaged to Mr. Twentyplum for six
long months.
"And be married next week, Mr. Mark
ham," added she. "So you see, you must
be mistaken about fate."
"And you have only been llirting with
me T'I said, bitterly. "Do you know that
you gave me reason to hope everything
from you ;"
"I know it is time for me to dress for a
drive,'" she said. "So you must say good
afternoon ; and don't look so ridiculously
tragic, Mr. Markham. I hate scenes."
Anil I felt that I deserved itall a3 I went
for the last time down the steps of the
Hannover mansion.
In a fortnight Violette was Mrs. Twen
typlum. Iu a month Mr. Hannover was
a bankrupt one of those w ho take a for
eign trip with plenty of money in their
pockets, w hile others lie crushed beneath
the fragments id their broken branches
at home.
My money went with his. I had come
to London with a moderate competence.
I had increased it by speculations until
I was absolutely wealthy. Now 1 found
myself suddenly almost poor.
there icinameU to me onlv tlie .Moss-
wood property, which must be turned
into ,i farm, and I myself must leave my
hope of being one of the city millionaires
behind me, and become a plain firmer
a man of the same social status as Hose
bud's father, without his comfortable
knowledge of money in the bank to com
fort me.
However, w ith the bursting of the bub
ble fortune, the circle which gathered
around Hannover had been seemingly scat
tered to the winds, and people knew that
Miss Violette had jilted me and also that
my money was gone. The city had lost
many of its charms, ami I wrote to the
old woman who had kept the houe at
Mosswood for my father until his death,
to make it ready tor my return. I hen
selling the furniture of my bachelor
rooms, and packing my smaller belong
ings in a few trunks, I started homeward.
I must go back to Mosswood and be
come a fanner. I bliould tind lioscbud
fading gradually away, of course, and yet
I knew she would be prettier than ever.
How she had loved me how ungrateful
I had been for that love. Ix'ow I would
make amends. I would write as many
repentant letters as were necessary, and
she would, of course, forgive me. No
worn in ever forgets or ceases to love any
man she has ever loved, you know. Yes,
alter a little maidenly resistance. It e
bud would bloom for me again. I was
sun; of this as the train bore me onward,
as I was that the moon would rise that
There is no adage more true than the
one that declare that misfortunes never
come alone, but always in troops. )ftcn,of
course, one brings the other. In my case,
the anxieties that had trooped so thickly
about rue made me nervous, ami so led
to a severe accident.
Having alighted at a certain station, I
delayed my return to the carriages until
they had started; I remember running
after them, and then what do 1 remem
ber theni Darkntjssdreams, pain, an
awakening in a little room with white
curtains, and a toilet table, and a vision
charmingly dressed. The same one say
ing slowly :
"Yes, yes, yes; I think he'll do."
And understanding this was my old
friend, Hiram 1 So per, I asked:
"How did I come here?" trying to sit
up, and failing in the attempt.
"Well," said Hiram, "wife and I were
at the station, and I saw you were a good
deal hurt, and we brought you on. i ou
know this is my house."
"Yours " said I. "And you are mar
ried anil in good practice, I suppose?"
"Yes," said ISoper. "Oh. yes; getting
on famously. And you've had a bad
tune, but vou It be on the right soon.
I'ome and tell him he will, ISosebud."
And there ves. there was IS se. After
I had ruminated on the fact for a few
minutes, I felt that trutli was stranger
than fiction.
"Are vou better. Mr. Markham?" said
IS isebuil, bending toward me.
Here was a poetical story being worked
out in our proper persons. A wounded
and repentant hero, I had been sent back
to Kosebuu to be nursed and forgiven
Had she not forgiven me, she never would
have flown to my aid. All that I could
do just then was to soueeze her hand.
She took it away rather quickly; but
that was very natural; I had not seen her
for three years, bhe did not know of my
contrition, liut she had not pined or
faded ; she was, on the contrary, stouter
ana rosier than ever. .
Just then, Dr. Roper being present, I
said nothing, bat afterwards, aa the even
ing shadows fell, she brought me tea and
oast; and then I took aer ha ml and said
"Dear Rosebud, how good of you."
And she answered ;
"O, dear, no don't mention it.
"You are an angel of forgiveness," I
said. "And I , 1 have always loved
you, ISosebud. Ti true a siren laid her
spells upon mo, but the hallucination
once over "'
"I shall think you are wandering
again if you do not stop talking. Do take
your toast."
"No," said I, "no, not a mouthful,
ISosebud, until you assure me that you
will forget the p ist, and once; more give
me the love "'
"Mr. Markham!" cried she.
"Call me Henry," said I. "ISose. if you
had hated me, would you be here minis
tering so kindly to my wants?"
"Here?"' said sh. "W'h're should I
be but in my own house' I'm sure I've
nothing to forgive you, either. Since you
allude to our llirtation of three years ago,
and since you will talk of it, I will tell
you, once for all, that I don't think we
ever should have been happy together.
And 1 always liked Hiram lest, only he
was so shy. And my goodness! we were
married as soon as lie got his diploma."
"Married !" cried I.
"Why, yes," s lid IS vsebe. 1. "How else
should I be here? You know this is Dr.
It oper's house t Didn't you know I wis
his wife before? Dear old fellow, he i
the best husband woman ever had, I'm
sure and, Mr. Markham, I know now
that I never really loved you."
1 don't kiVnv whether that was true or
not, but it did not matter. She did not
love me then, ami does not now; ami I
had lost her.
I live alone at Mosswood now, an old
bachelor, with a limp ami the dysjepsia,
and she and a boa pie t af little blossoms
tlourish over the way at Dr. ISopei's.
Some time, perhaps, may marry.
Miss Flint would have me, anal so wanild
the Widow Wiggins; but whatever I may
gather to wear over my heart it w ill not
be u rosebud. I threw- that away long
ago, and ISoper picked it up, and it makes
his life fragrant.
Needles are more easily made than pins,
or rather there is less machinery, and it
is more easily understood. The wire is
cut double the length required and sharp
ened at each end. Then it is passed under
a stamping machine w hich llattens the
center and stamps a place for the two
eyes, the next operation being to pierce
the eyes. This is comparatively a slow
operation, as the eyes are pierced singly,
and care must be taken ta put the right
spot under the instrument. Then they
are strung on wires, and the waste rilt.-ai
otf around the eyes by hand, ami the two
neeailes broken apart. After this they
are hardened by heating in ovens, and
then being dipped in oil. yet this harden
ing process leaving them too brittle, they
are again annealed, which operation is
supposed to leave them just right. At
this parioil1 they are very Obtek; they are
rolled loosely in canvas wrappings with
emery and soft soap, placed under rollers
worked by steam and rolled for a week,
usually having the emery and soft soap
renewed daily. Again they are polished
by being rublwd against a leather wheel
with emery, anl then they are straight
ened. The strsiightener rolls them singly
with one linger am a small steel plate,
thus discerning the slightest bend, anal
hitting with a little steel mallet. It is
lone very rapially, but very surely. The
lilferent sizes are supposed to have been
kept apart, yet iu sharpening there is
sometimes a little variation; so to make
them perfectly' even in pa iters they are
sorted by being put in frames which will
iaId certain lengths, ami lastly they are
tapered, labelleal and packeal. One set af
men will make )0,uoo par alay, that is, on

The Hat of the Period.
The Chicago Inter (uiu has a treatise
i - i . i : . .. . .. . . .4- ...
on women s nais. in which u b.is. nm
meet a remarkably modest and timid ap
pearing young lady of to-day, and you
notice that her hat has h meek ami shrink
ing indentation in thar crown. It htoks
i if it wanteal to shim the wickeal worhl,
ami hang itself up in a nunnery, to
morrow yuu meet the same laaly, and w hat
i change. She appears as a daring Joan
of Arc, and as imlc pendent as if she was
president of a woman s congress. .nn
her whatle appearance is thus altereal by
pinning up the front of that hat. Na-xt
lay she appears like a bngaml. I he
brim is ll attened out, and her eyes gleam
furiously from underneath as if watching
an opportunity to onler you to stand and
aleliver. Yatu see her again, ami the
rim turncal up behind, while it is verv
flat in front, gives her the appearance ot
a female Solon Shingle trying to find a
customer for that Mitr'l of apple sass.'
Again, ami it is pitched on the extreme
back of the heaa.l, reiniinling you of Two
dies in his cups, when he is assuring the
'sailor man' that when his father heard of
the sailor man's death, 'he went broken
hearted to his grave, unal died there. With
all its advantages it is no wonder that
the reigning hat is intpular. It is com
fortable to the head, so they say, and it
is an ornament or a disguise, as required.
It is demure, j lunty, meek, saucy, bold,
sly, obstinate, conciliating, tender what
ever you please everything by turns and
nothing long. It is the hat of the teriaxl,
cunning and deceitful, but above all
things, desperately wicked."
A veuv beautiful rainbow was lighting
up the chtuals; every one who tiw ad
mired it, anal so much praise made it
vain. "I am much handsomer than the
sun," it exclaimed; "for, bright as he is,
he has only one color, and I have so
many." The sun heard this, and without
entering into a dispute witn tlie conceiteu
rainltow, he quietly smiled. Then hiding
his beams in the clouds, he concealed
himself fatr an instant, and the rainbow
also disappeared. Persons who are vain
and ungrateful forget whose hand it is
that made them prosperous. Is it not

Hating Between Meals.
Win1!) ft man or woman has sufficient
appetite ta eat three meals a day, it is
more than unnecessary it is suicidal
t i rat between meals. But this does not
apply to children, who have not yet
brought their appetites under control,
ami cannot or will not. do equal justice
to every meal. The child is ofteu called
early in the morning, long before it has
its natural sleep, to eat its breakfast. Of
cauirse it has little, if any appetite; a few
laouthfuls is sufiicient; and then think of
going fratm live ta teven hours without
eating fata id! Hut, you say, the child will
eat a ha-arty dinner, anal make up for the
breakfast. Fatssiblv: but be assured if
it aiu-s it will overload the slatinach,
a iu sing derangement ami inflammation.
Ihit it is more than likely that the child
will have passeal the time when dinner
would relish, and ngain. very little food
is lcquiieal. The consequence is, that
by-aii'l-by he liecanees pale and thin, and
losa-s vivacity ami color, and puzzles pru
dent mamma by falling into confirmed
ill health. Now we argue that nature
is a safe teacher, and when a child feels
hungry Ins stmn icii is crying tor neccs
sity fooal. It may do very well fatr physi
cians to make rules, but people should
remember that all rules have various ex
ceptiams. There is no doubt but the di
gestive organs should have time to per
form their allotted duties. We are tatld,
tatat, that we should rest at least an hour
ifter eating, before attempting physical
or mental laoor. v u oiaeys tins injunc

The .Moth.
I his little insect, so destructive ta our
oiist holds, is known tt naturalists by
ic name of tinea, and behtugs ta) the
family of the lepidoptera or scaly-winged
insect, of which it is the smallest, the
mo-t Iteaiuifiil ami the most destrueti vc.
It is seconal eou-in to the canker worm
ind tin; turpentine moth, but among its
u istocratie and honorable relations is the
ilk worm. The inimcaliate family rela
tives ot the common moth are, the bee
moth, carpet moth, hair moth, grain
moth and the pack moth. As sawtn as the
gg laid by the mother moth is hatched,
traightvvav the tiny worm proceeding
from it begins to feed upon the fabric to
w hich it is f.istenel, and spins itself a co-
K.n in which it moves freely anal unseen,
uiai from this in due time emerges a but
ter fly. Iu May or June these winged in
sects aleposh their eggs. Ilcfbrc this time
everything they can harm should be
placctl beyamii their reach. lefore put

shouhl be thoroughly beaten to dislodge

on them, ana exposed to the sun ami air
tor hours, it i said tint brushing over
their retreats with turpentine will dis
htalge them ; that camphor, black pepper,
tobacco, shavings of Russia leather, will
lisgust them; that camphor wood and
cedar trunks are free fratm their visita
tions, ami that corratsive sublimate wash
ings, sulphur fumigations and the action
of he at anl steam, will kill them. Pre
vention is the best cure. If furs and
woolens are carefully sealeal up in paper
cases, or put away in chests or irunKS
which the nitth-lly cannot penetrate, they
ne safe. Fabrics already attacked by
them shouhl le beaten and sunned re
peateally, and thair ravages will be
iccked. I his little insect hives dark

a Murderer by
Mean- of
The London papers publish the detail
of a remarkable murder, the perpetrator
of which has been dcteetel iu a most
singular manner. The victim was a little
girl ageal only seven years anal the sus
pected murderer was a barber nameal
Fish. The trunk of the body of the vic
tim was fou ml in a ojteri field, anal the
discovery of the tkull was made in a most
extraordinary manner. The nflicers he
cured the services of the owner of twa
blooalhounals anal set out with the dogs
and their owner to the place where the
trunk of the Itojy was fou ml, to see if
any scent of the remaining portion of
the baxly coiiht be found. '1 fie dogi did
not appear to seer.t anything. They
were taken to w here the legs of the child
were found, but without any result. They
returned and it was then decided to have
the dogs taken to Fish's shop anal flic
shop of a barlter n lined Whitehead, who
alsat had Iteen suspecteal. The detectives
entered the premise of the two barbers
simuItaneousIy,anil one of them remained
at Fish's shop while the other establish
ment was examined. From the move
ments of the datg the patlice h.ul no reason
to suppose that anything was concealed
there, and the dogs proceedeal to Fish's
premise?, iu which there are two rooms
lielow and two above. The bloodhounds

Woil.l Fair.-.
If the world's fairs go tin growing
larger anal larger in their dimensions, and
each successive intern. itional cxhibitiatn
makes a point of covering just twice as
much space as the one that went be fore
it, this class of brobdignagian entertain
ments will catme to an end shortly by
reason of the impossibility of obtaining
enough ground in the immediate neigh
borhatoal of great cities ujmu which to
plant the structures. The inclosure for
the French internatiatnal exhibition of
187 is to occupy not less than 220,001
square meters of superficies, which is
double the spice of the exhibition of
18!7. In addition to the main building,
we read that "on the summit of the Tro
cadero, a vast covered circular enclosure
will be reared, capable of holding from
four to five thousand persons, and destined
for concerts, festivals, internatiatnal meet
ings, etc. Ou the slope of the same h
cality, in terraces, anal arrangeal with a
view to picturesque c fleet, are to be

the Paris exhibition, will probably le
held at Loiulon, and, of course, the Eng
lish will feel themselves calleal upon to
excel all previatus efforts in the bigness
of their buildings. It makes the senses
reel to contemplate the enorniatusness
which these international structures are
bound to reach within a few decaales, if
they continue at their present rate o!

Washington's White Ciiauoeiis.
Washington was an excellent horseman.
It is saial that he could ride at a full
gallop, and retain a silver dollar between
each knee and the saddle, such was the
tenacious grasp of his thighs upon the
horse. He was very fond of hi horses,
and liked to see them thoroughly groom
ed. The manner in which his white
horses were kept white is curious. Mr.
O. W. P. Custis states that the night be
fore they were to be used they were en
tirely covered with a paste, the chief in
gredient of which was whiting, and were
then completely clothed, and left for the
night to sleep on clean straw. By the
morning this coating was hard and dry,
and it was then brushed and curried off,
leaving the hair beneath beautifully white
and glossy. After this the hoof were
blackened and polished. To complete
this carious toilet, the horses' mouths
were washed, and their teeth picked and
washed, when they were considered to be
groomed, and were ready lor work.
