General Green made an uiisuccesoftil

Six, ami withdrew his men beyond the
Tiger ami Uroad rivers. Lord Itawilon
followed him, but could lvot draw the
Patriotic general into an engagement.
At that period there stood, in South

"Just like you, Miss Kate always

'Thankyou for the compliment, Guy.

And Kate was again on her journey,
while the picket returned to his post.
She had to jiass four miles yet ere she
would be safe, so she urged on her steed.

the leader of the Imnd, as they dashed
utter tlie umve girl, leaving the picket
in a state of bewilderment.
Kate soon heard the sound of her pur
suers and she pushed on faster. It was
a race for life or death. Tlie ISritish
horses were fresh while hers was begin

"Forward, Selim! You must take me I

at her side, and then cried out, "Halt,

These were his last words, for Kate
fired and the bullet crashed through his
brain. The others did not stop to look
at their dead comrade, but pressed on.
They neared her again, and another
trooper received his dentil wound. Tlie
remainded halted, and a moment after

cry out, "Who goes there?"
"Kate Heath!" cried our herofnc, as
she dashed through the line.

Struggling Witli the World.
A young lady who has been teaching
school for a Jiving in the cat, full of
the quenchless veannug for a wide Hold
aud fair play, tells a story which it
would he well for those having voice
and authority in such matters to heed.
On tlie threshold of ncr career, iiuuing
that one obstacle to her success was the
dilfercnce in the amount paid to a man
and a woman for the same lauor, Mie
complained to a friend, who quoted

There is 'room
enough up-stairs.' If you would receive
better wages, lit yoursou ior a niguer
position. Jlo you not see inai you are
surrounded" bv an incompetent host.
Come up higher!" She had long la
mented the fact that so many of her sis
ter teachers worked on from year to year i
in a irroove. neither ImnrovinK their
own minds nor learning better methods
for the development of those intrusted
to them. She knew that many of them
were deserving pity more than blame,
because the time employed for gentle
man teachers for rest ami recreation
must be used by them in sewing ami
housework, on account of their small
salaries. She determined to find a place
"up-stairs," if untiring elforts would se
cure it. Her days were spout in school,
and much of tlie night over her books.
Time and money were spent in visiting
llrst-ciiiss schools, studying the best
methods of school government, and the
simplest anil clearest way of imparting
instruction. After long mouths of toil,
she felt and knew Unit she wa master
of her work, and looked for the reward
of her labors. After t'jaehing one or two I
terms, she applied for a position as first
assistant in a school, ami a lew nays ai
tenvard was waited upon by the presi
dent of the iKianl, who informed her
that uion strict inquiries tliey had dis
covered that she was competent to con
duct tho school herself. Ujkhi the recep
tion of this news her heart beat with
joy, as she felt that she had reached tlie
"nom up-stairs." Filled witli this
thought, and thankful that her efforts
were to be crowned with success, she did
not think of the remuneration until
asked what pay she expected, when she
inquired what tliey had usually paid,
when she was informed that sho was a
woman, and this was an experiment.
They had paid a man, tho last year,
seven hundred dollars for six months,
but proposed to try her for three months
at lil'ty-live dollars a mouth, telling her
that, if she succeeded, her pav would be
raised at the end of that time. This
time passed quickly, when the school
was pronounced a success, tiie board in- I
forming her that such entire satisfaction !
had never been given before. 1'ari'nts

boys and younsr men who lind Imi her
pupils, and had finished their school
days tinder her leaching, gathered about
her witli tearful eyes and thanked her
with trembling litis fur her untiring ef
forts in their behalf. The girls vied
with each other in ollering tokens of
love and respect, while all expressed the
hope Hint she might be with them tlie
wining year. With mingled feelings of
joy and sorrow she closed her school
room door, hair wishing the long vaca
tion over and herself ready for work
again. Tlie secretary of the board, in
giving her tlie onler for the Inst term's
iwy, waxed eloquent over her success;
hut when she glanced at the paper he
gave her, and found only fifty-live dol
lars allowed per mouth, he hmi nothing
more to say. and referred her to the
president, who informed her she had
done nobly, telling her the school had
never been so well conducted, and that
she had saved them lots of money. Upon
her asking if lie had not agreed that she
should have her salary raised tiie second
term, he said: "Wellyes: JJut we
talked it over and concluded that liftv
five dollars was rnou(i fur a irom'tn!"
This conversation took place in Mr.
I'' '3 bank, just at the hour of closing.
At the door, in a carriage, waited his el-egaiitly-dressed
daughter. Our "teach
er" felt almost wicked as she passed her
with her father's words In her ears
"enough for a woman!" There was no
written contract, ami she was helpless.
Hitter tears were shed in the solitude or
her room that night, mr she felt that
she must seek work elsewhere. They
would gladly have employed her anoth
er year, in onler that they might save
" otsof money;" but, finding her ser
vices could not be secured for less than
they gave a man, they let her go. Anil
