WHAT SHE F0U1.
Isadore Stafford was a woman to be
envied. Why not? Rich, a widow and
still voting, or at least far from old, tbe
whole world lay at her feet, ana she had
but to reach out her hand and take what
she wished; everything but happiness;
that had eluded her and never seemed
farther from her than on this Christmas
Eve, when we see her standing by her
window tapping impatiently upon it
with her exquisite fan. Isadoro Staf
ford never forgot her fan. With it she
toyed constantly, and those who knew
her best could tell from tbe movements
of the pretty thing just the statu of its
owner's mind. Her fans were as unique
as herself, and I could no more describe
them than I could describe her moods
and thoughts. Her favorites were a pure
ivory, whose carving were half an inch
in thickness, and executed by Italy's
finest sculptor; a black jet, at whose
edge swayed to and fro in the air frail
lihes-of-tbe-valleys, and one of gold, set
with small turquoise stones in heathen
ish designs--bat I am not telling the
story of her toys, but of the woman her
self as she stood that wintry day amid
her luxurious surroundings, watching
the lazy snowflakes fall on the pasters-
"Yes, the old year is almost gone and
Via 'pw Ypur will snon bo hfr. WIiv
am I not happy? Who can tell? I sim
ply know I ara not, and for once refuse
to have my bouse thrown open to hun
dreds on New Year's day.who bow them
selves in - and out with the senseless
words, "I witsh you a happy New Year."
This woman, envied by all who knew
her, nevertheless, vas to be pitied. The
world had proved to her. as to many an
other, a golden apple of Sodom, out
wardly brilliant and desirable, but with
in, ashes. She had never known pov
erty, never been compelled to toil, never
even soiled her tiny fingers with work;
but she had missed also the mental dis
cipline that results from these, and the
love of parents, sisters and brothers
even the love that a woman has a right
to expect when she marries, for heis had
been little more thau a business arrange
ment, made and urged by her guardian,
lest she should fail into the bauds of
fortune-hunters; and when the shackles
were broken by death, the sense of relief
was so sweet that no thought of marriage
Lad since ever entered her mind. Of
course she had been sought, and persist
ently, but with a charming firmness she
had kept her lovers her friends, by the
"no" she uttered, and lived the years
that came and went, as others weary
hearted Lave done.
Once only, and that in her school-girl
days, Bhe bad felt the thrill of happi
ness; but this was now so far away, so
faint in her memory, had flashed across
her Itfe so suddenly and then vanished
forever, that it now seemed a mere dream
of her brain. Again she looked from
the window. ' The flakes were falling
more rapidly; great, soft flakes that
tempted one to raise the face to feel the
winged things brush against it; and the
children, wild with delight that Christ
mas so near, laughed and shouted and
danoed as merrily as if they were one
with the storm.
Thirty-two! Life half gone, and all
spent in a chase after something that
does not exist.. I'll make a vov on this
Christmas Eve, and if I fail to keep it
may its ghost rise up to condemn me!
From this day no thought of happiness
shall enter my mind. It shall be ban
ished with the fairies and hob goblins I
believed in when n child and quite as
mythical as they."
At this moment her eyes fell on a cou
ple of miserable creatures, barely cov
ered with rags that fluttered in the storm
like flags of distress, as shivering hands
found their way from their folds to beg
of passers-by foca coin."
"There, l9adore Stafford! What have
you to say now of unhappinessor misery
as long as such people exist in the world?
Thirty years! Ten times thirty are three -hundred.
If I should live thirty years

from suffering to comfort. I'll try it!
The idea is a new one and pleases me.

The inspiration took thorough posses

"To St. Luke's, John."
One would (kink she had oft3n been
there to have seen fcer run up the steps
and ring the bell; but the matron did
not seem to recognize her, and stood in
an expectant attitude to hear what her
visitor's errand might be.
"Are your beds all filled?" asked the
"We are over-crowded, madam, and
Lave been compelled to decline some
patients for lack of room."
And what has Ijeen done with them?"
"Nothing, I fear."
"Could you get nurses for them if
comfortable beds were provided?"
"How soon do you think the children
could be moved?"
"I have come on a singular mission
to-night, and I trust you can help me to
fulfil it.A wealthy lady has taken a whim
into ber bead of opening her bouse on
Christmas to some suffering children.
She does not wish her namo to be known

"Thanks! She will be delighted. You
will also send your physician?"
"To-morrow, then, at Lexington
avenue," and bowing, she passed out
into tho shallows, jubilant over her suc
cess. "Home, John."
As she rested among the soft, warm
robes she murmured:
"I felt very guilty to bear taat good
woman say, 'Christ-like,' when it was
merely a whim for novelty, but already
I am enjoying the plan immensely.
Everything works like a charm. The old
world is pasung away; already the new
is dawning. What a blessed inspiration!
Who knows but that something in the
universe I shall find, if not happiness,
"Is she in her right mind, do you
think.Mary?" asked Alice.Mrs. Stafford's
maid, of the waitress, when the house
was electrified by ber plans.
"And that's what I've been wondering
to myself since I see the change in ber
manner. Don't I remember going into
her room that very day, before she went
out into the storm, and seeing her sitting
in her great crimson chair, with her
hands crossed and her eyes having that
far-away look that is never good for mor
tals to have. I see, of course, that she
did not wish anything, and thought I
would, go down and have a few words
with my cousin about receiving calls,
and when I came back she was gone
and you know how wo fretted about ber
for two mortal hours. At last she came
back, and ber face shone as if she had
been talking with angels; and taking me
ofl by herself she told me to make every
thing ready in all the spare rooms for
company, and to put up an extra bed in
the largest. Of course I supposed she
was going to astonish her friends by
some elegant entertainment, but when I
hinted at this she said: 'Oh, no! It is
better thau that, Mary. Entertainments
make heart-aches, and this is to nitke
happiness, I am going to keep the holi
days in a new way. Perhaps the New
Year will be really a New Year. You see
that sounded very strange. What could
New Year's be but New Year's anyhow?
When she told me it was cripples and
children from the hospital who were
coming, I knew for certain she must be
a little out of her mind, but she looked
so beautiful and bright I bad not the
heart to oppose ber. Something has
happened to her, as sure as I'm a sensi
Not ouly were Alice am" Mary, but
every domestic in tho house was con
vinced that their mistress would soou be
an inmate of a lunatic asylum, when they
saw not one or two, but half-a dozen
pale-faced cripples brought into the
house and placed in the elegant rooms
that had hitherto been devoted to the
great and honored ainoDg her guests.
Not a thing was allowed to be changed
in these rooms. Delicate ornaments,
statuettes, pictures, books, all remained
as before, and under the elegant counter
panes and blankets lay wisttul-eyed, suf
fering children, who almost forget their
pain in the beautiful world where they
found themselves. Nurses cared for
them, and in and out moved Isadore
Stafford, dressed iu a plain black dress
and white cap, not unlike a Sister of
Every eye brightened when she came
in sight with her beautiful face, and as
she passed from room to room, smooth
ing a pillow here, or patting a cheek
there, the little visitors, as she called
them, drew a long breath and believed
that they had already reached heaven
and an angel had ministered unto them.
Among these children was oua toward
whom Mrs. Stafford felt particularly at
tracted a bright-faced boy of perhaps
ten years of age, with great brown, lu
minous eyes, and a mass of golden
brown curls clustering over his head.
He told ber his name wa3 Arthur Cleve
land; that he had no parents- no one in
all the world but Kitty. Kitty was his
sister, and was a little thing, whom he
was drawing in his little wagon the day
on whioh he had been hurt by the run
"Oh, ma'am! just think if it had been
Kitty!" said the poor little felloe: "I
should have diod for she's all I have in
"And where is she now, Arthur?"
"I have not seen her since. A woman
took her home and will take care of her
till I get well. When will my back get
"Pretty soon I hope. Would you
like to S60 her?"
His eyes were all the answer she
needed, and before night little Kitty was
playing on his bed, and a crib near by
told that she was a fixture, also. She
was not handsome like her brother, but
winsome and attractive, with such cun
ning baby ways, that Mrs. Stafford, who
had never seen much of baby life.thought
her a miracle of smartness.
The servants had been forced to be
lieve thoir mistress no longer insane, but
merely giving way to one of those freaks
which they hud become accustomed to,
though, as Bridget, ihe cook, said

"Well, if it's her way of being happy,
I am sure we need not object. It's all
the better for us, for if these cnildren
were not here the house 'ud be thrown
open to hundreds of gentlemen New
Year's day, and then we would have to
be in all day," said Alice. "I, for one,
am mighty glad she's amused herself in
that way, for I want to see my friends at
During these days Mrs. Stafford bad
not seen the physician, who came and
went at regular hours.and who could not
quite understand why his little patients
were inmates of one of the largest pal
aces of the city.
The night before New War's at last
came, cold and stormy. Mrs. Stafford
bad been out all day, ordering flowers
and fruits and all sorts of gifts for her
guests, and only returned borne when
the gai was lighted in the streets. Ruu
niog up to her room to remove hor
wraps, her cheeks aglow with happiness
and health, she went to ber pet's room
and found, not Arthur and Kitty and the
nurse merely, but a tall, heavily-bearded
man, who stood in the center of the
room, tossing Kitty like a ball in the
air. Such crowing and laughing from
Kitty! Such joy and clapping of bands
Mrs. Stafford stood for a moment un
seen and unnoticed, enjoying the scene,
and feeling more genuine happiness than
she had known in many a year. Sud
denly Kitty turned ami" saw ber, and
reaching out her hands u bo taken,
sprang from the doctor's into the arms
nurses and c-htiuren to uer uouse to
of Isadore Stafford, utterly regardless of
tbe fact that she was qaoen of society.
To Kitty she was a beautiful woman, with
a loving heart. Or perhaps she was mere
ly the personification of comfort. Cud
dling close to her guardian, she turned
to look at the doctor and play coquette
with him, as babies have done since the
days of Cain. Mrs. Stafford also looked
ud and bowed. The doctor stood trans
fixed. i"Is it possible, Isadore, that we meet
thus and over the gulf of years and
changes, stand face to face once more?
Little I thought that you were the Lady
Bountiful who was ministering to my
little patients the largest dose of health
they could have had. Tell me of your
self." I "Come into the library. There is lit
tle to tell. You have followed your
ideal that is easy to see. I Lave lived a
useless, tedious life without aim or profit.
This freak that brought you to my
door was only a dream that led me to
hope for happiness by doing good to
others. All selfishness, after all, you

me. A doctor's life has littlo luxury in
j There was a tone of bitterness in his
voice as he spoke, that for a moment
blotted out all conventionalities of so
ciety, and almost defiantly she said in
i "Luxuries and happiness are not syn
onymous. I have never seen an hour's
happiness since we parted until I brought
these children here. You havo had to
work, have suffered weariness and expo
sure, but havo no doubt bad a happy
home to come to when the day was gone."
I "Did you suppose I would marry? Did
you fancy I was like a woman? lieady
to vow to love and honor when I knew
it was a lie?" be answered still more bit
terly. "It is true, I have been happy,
but it Las been iu the line of my duty
at least, I have not been miserable. My
Lome Las been whereyer sickness and
suffering called me, and the yeats have
passed quickly because bo full of cares."
I "Poor Allen! Mine has been infinitely
worse. I have done no good, and the
years have dragged their slow length
along, each more tedious than the last."
j And so the two talked over the years
that had come and gone since they parted
until the clock on tho mantel struck and
reminded him that others were waiting
for him to bring comfort and telief.
With a long, kindly pressure of her
hand, he said "Good-night," and shut
ting the door softly, left her alone,
j How the memories crowded! They
came in at every door, and hung about
every picture and corner. They sang in
her heart and danced in her. eyes. They
blotted out the present and in its place
painted pictures of her school-days. Be
neath their power life had suddenly be
come a beautiful thing, and every hour a

pened this is the strangest," said the so
ciety belle to the young gentleman by
her side, a day or two after Easter. "Is
adore Stafford married! The heavens
must be going to fall! 1 should as soon
expect to hear of Mother Mary Augelus
being married, for, surely, she is more
agreeable to gentlemen than this cold,
elegant creature, that has lived so long
among us and has never cared for any
one," "The fact of her being married is not
as strange as the way it was done, ac
cording to my notion," replied the gen
tleman. "I believe in Cupid; that any
veteran he aims at will fall. I always
thought she w.mld find her fate some
time. These proud icebergs always do;
but I never thought she'd marry a doc
tor and turn into a sister of charity. To
think of the men she has refused!"'
"They say he was an old friend, and
some one told me he was her first lover.
If so, that accounts for everything. Her
maid told a friend of mine that it was
the strangest ceremony ever seen in Nww
York. You know she did not receive
New Year's, and everybody was disap
pointed, because it had been a favorite
house for callers. Well, I happened to
know what was going on behind those
closed blinds, while hundreds of elegant
gentlemen were dropping their cards in
her basket. Shall I tell you about it?"'
"By all means."
"Well, you will scarce believe me
when I tell you that her parlors were as
brilliantly lighted and as elegantly deco
rated, as if she were to sit in them,
dressed by Worth, and adored by the
multitude and all for what? For a few
hospital children to enjoy. They were
brought down into the parlor to receive
their gifts, and then they were served in
the dinning-room to a regular swell din
ner. Of course the doctor was there,
s.nd they say she looked as happy as a
girl. She had only met him the ntght
before for the first time since she was a
girl. There must be a vein of romance
in her nature, or she would never have
taken such a freak into her head. Well
bred pecple should never have freaks."
"Yet this must have done a great deal
of good. Think of the blessing to those
wretched children. I never thought she
seemed happy in socity."
"It must have been her own fault then.

"You prefer money te friends, then?"
"It is our best friend, I think."
"I fancy as Mrs. Stafford she fond

joinder of the young gentleman. "I hope
she'll be happy."
"Never "fear. Late love marriages are

"And she was marrid at Easter."

Brewery Refuse In JtUk.
The enormous amounts of spent grains
which come from tbe breweries of this
country are all consumed by domestic
animals in the neighborhood of the
breweries, and by far the larger part of
it by milch cows. The volume of milk
which a cow will give depends very
largely on the amount of flesh-prod uciirg
food she can digest, and brewers' grains,
which abound in flesh-forming matter,
easy of digestion by reason of the treat
ment it receives, responds forcibly to
thin rale. There are but few food3 which
will stimulate a large flow of milk equal
to brewers' grains, but there is no butter
in it. When used as an exclusive diet,
the milk of cows consuming it soon
ceases to produce any butter. When
used as a partial feed, the butter product
will be gauged by the other food used
with the grains. As the grains increase
the weight of milk and decrease its value
for batter production, it is very unfair
for patryns of a creamery to feed grains
to their cows unless all the patrons do
the same. It is an artful way of water
ing milk the milk baing watered be
fore it comes from the cow instead of af
terward. So far as the butter-making is
concerned, both modes of watering pro
duce exactly the same result?, and, if
not the legal, the moral is the same in
either case, "it means something for
nothing, or to phrase it. more exactly, it
means money for water. By far the larg
est part of brewers' refuse goes to feed
the cows which Bupply with to called
milk the city or village in which the
brewing is done. Tho people who pur
chase the milk expect it will be watered
"all it will bear," and it is a matter of
little account to them whether the water
ing is done before after milking. Cows
supplying milk to a creamery should
have no sour or fermented food.
"How do you like my waflles?" asked
a society belle of her guest. "Could not
be nicer," was tho reply. "Did you
really make these you rself ?" "Oh, yes,
indeed. I read off the receipt to the
cook and turned the patent flour-sifter
all by myself."
