Change Partners.
" Change partners ! "
We "were dancing a quadrille, and I,
smiling, held out my hands to John
Lorincr. who left Lilian to be eracefully
led to my clace bv Rudolph. But the
smile died awa upon my lips.
Why did Lilian crow bo deadly pale,
and Rudolph frown and compress his

' said, in his grave, sedate way
" You have made a mistake, Debby,
This way.".
Then my hand was clasped in Ru
dolph's again, and we waited for' the
side couples to dance. - But I could- not
help watching Lilian talking so fast to
John, her cheeks red again too red
her eyes feverish, and her animation too
marked for my sly little cousin, llu
dolph was pale now, and something had
disturbed his boyish brightness.

and we wandered off to the" conserva
tory. Nobody minded, for Rudolph and

four years there was but little variation

both. Then fortune gave her wheel

favor. Rudolph made a successful specu

and my grandmother died and left me
an heiress.
It was a little bewildering at first to
be mistress of a handsome country seet.

If I had kept my dear little crippled
aunt and Lilian with me when every
week's income had to be divided with
painful economy, it was scarcely prob
able we would separate when I was able
to give them luxuries. And John Lor-

affairs were found to be so embarrassed
after his death.

gagement, and when Rudolph came
Aome we were all making a Summer
sojourn at Wylde Glen, where my country,
,a seat was located. John was at the hotel
but he came over often, and . all the
- neighbors were very sociable. So we
had balls, "picnics, croquet parties and
every sort of festivity, to amuse Ru

This ball of Mrs. Maitland's was one
of the last, for Autumn leaves were
falling. I had thought when J was
dressing for it that the years of poverty
and toil had not left their traces upon
Rudolph's face as they had on mine. I
was always fair and blonde, but I looked
faded, washed out, and my blue dress
did not become me.
Or was it Lilian's face looking over
my shoulder that made me think so.
Lilian was fair, but her rippling hf ir
was a perfect bronze color, her eyes
brown and soft as a fawn's, and her lips
tinted like rose petals. In her low,
broad brow, her sensitive lips, you read
genius, for the child was an artist born
with wondrous musical gifts and rare
poetical fancies. She was tall and slen
der, the perfection of grace, and her
dress of fleecy white, with green leaves
in her hair and on her breast, suited her
And yet I was only twenty-five cer
tainly not old. Rudolph was five years
older, and still, despite his brown beard
and manly carriage Rudolph was boyish
in his frankness, his enjoyment of fun,
his energy and love of athletic sports. .

; though he had been rich. But I ah
! me ! I had nursed mother through two
years of helplessness, and father failed
in business and died soon after. ' I had
gone to Aunt Charlotte when she lell
down stairs, and her.busy usefulness left
her forever. I had remained with her,
taking her pupils with my own, and
helping Lilian to get an education.
It was a hand-to-hand struggle with
poverty and heartache, varied by weeks
-at " a time of nursing Aunt Charlotte
through agonizing suffering, and it had
left me aged beyond my years. Many
a time I would have desaired but for
John Loring, one of papa's business
friends, and our adviser in all matters of

walked to the conservatory, I wished
Lilian had not grown so pale when we
changed partners in the quadrille, and
Rudolph took her little white gloved
hands in his. He talked gently to me
as we Btood ' by the plashing fountain,
told me of some purchases he had made
for our house, and commented pityingly
vpon my weary eyes and cheeks.
" All this dissipation is too much for
you, Debby," he said, and I hated my
old-fashioned name as he spoke it. Lilian
! was -.softer, more musical. : Why was I
named for my grandmother 1 ,
"I will bring a carriage to-morrow,"
Rudolph said, " and take you to some
quiet place of rest for a few hours. Only
you and me, Debby, remember i

turned home, I heard herBobbing.
What ailed the child 1 For weeks she
had been growing pale and nervous or
fitfully gay, and ; never had her music
moved me to tears as it had done of late.
Aunt Charlotte seemed changed, too,
tender to me with an added gentleness,
and over scrupulous about leaving me
alone with Rudolph.
I wished sometimes that Rudolph was
not quite so careless and merry. He
!ested .about all things, and yet I have
heard him sigh over Lilian's sad song as
if he was broken-hearted. ' it made me
feel old that so often their: merriment
jarred upon me, for when Rudolph first
came he treated Lilian like the child he
had left hve years before. ; When we
rode they would race their horses, leav
ing me far behind, for I am not a brave
horsewoman, while Lilian, so sensitive
and : gentle at all times, is fearless on
horseback. '

so disgusted with leading childish fingers

I looked upon it all complacently
enough, often turning to smile at John
as these two jested or made merry at my
expense, but I did not like to see it all
change Of late Lilian had seldom come
into the drawing room during Rudolph's
visits, and Rudolph missed her. I was
sure of that: for while he was always
affectionate and kind, he was abstracted
often. ;
John, too, stayed away more than
usual, and John was my best friend, 1
was not even as confidential to Rudolph,
for he had been five years away, and was
not changed as I was.
"It was altogether strangely uncom
fortable when one considered that I was
to be married in October, and to go to
Europe with Rudolph, whose ancestors
were German, and who had a desire to
visit his grandfather's home in Munich.
Lilian had helped to plan out a most
tempting tour for us through England,
France, Spain, Italy and Germany, and
Rudolph complimented us both upon
our German, which was familiar to him,
his mother having taught him to speak
it at home.
The day after the ball was stormy,
and we slept late. At least I did not
sleep, but stayed ill my room. There
were some letters to be written, and I
was preparing a rough draft of a deed
of gift to Aunt Charlotte. I did not
want two town houses, and Rudolph
had bought a superb mansion that he was
fitting up for his bride. So my house I
resolved to give to Aunt Charlotte, with
a sufficient sum to maintain her in com
fort after I left her. Nobody knew but
John, and he was coming to take my
papers and make them out legally. Did
I say John was a successful lawyer 1 I
knew that he would come, even if it did
rain, though I scarcely expected Ru
dolph until evening, as the rain would
prevent our proposed excursion.
It was late in the forenoon when I
went down to the library, a small room
adjoining the long -drawing room, and
separated from it by a curtained arch.
Being a woman's home, the library had
never been very extensive more a cosy
reading room than stndy.
I was waiting there for John, nest
ling in an easy chair, and wondering if
it was the ball that made me bo languid,
"when I heard the drawing room door
open, and presently Lilian touched the
keys of the grand piano, her fingers
gliding into a dreamy nocturne that was
one of her late favorites. The curtains
were looped so that I could see her, in
her white dress, with no ornament but
soft lace, and I sighed to see how white
and wan she looked, what quivering pain
was on her sweet mouth, and in her
large eyes.
Some one else saw it, for, while she
played,1 Rudolph came in. All the mer
riment was gone now from his face, and
he leaned od the piano, listening, and
not noting how her fingers faltered as he
fixed his eyes upon Lilian's face.
When he spoke he said :
" I am going away, Lilian."
" You are wise," she said faintly.
" I can make some excuse to Debby,
and I will stay in town until you all
come tothe wedding ! I was a mis
erable coward last night, Lilian, tortur
ing you and myself ; but I will not
offend again."
41 No," she said gently, "I am sure of
that. We must both be brave, fo
Debby must never know. Neither
you nor I could be false to Debby, Ru
dolph.1 Think what she has been to
met", .. v; - '
" And to me My faithful love ! "
The "mist was gone from my eyes, and
I knew the whole secret of what had
puzzled me. -These two loved eack other.
Rudolph had found, the gentle, sympa
thetic love that suited his manly nature,
and Lilian the brave protector her tim
idity needed.
And I Debby what ailed me? For
f was glad ! Glad to see my lover faith
less in heart true in honor.
I had not heard John come in, but
when ! turned my head he was there,
with stern lips and drawn brow, until
he saw my smile. Then a glad light
leaped to his eyes, and he whispered :
" Oh, my darling, is it so 1 You are
not heart-broken? You do not love
him?"-";' - 3.i;:v- ;
" It must have been a girlish fancy,"
I said, astonished at myself.
" But the woman's heart ! Debby,
have you never guessed ; the torture it
was to me to know that you were not
free ? Do you not know I have loved
you always, my darling?"
"His darling !
" I did not know,'' I faltered; "I only
"What?" he asked, ss I hesitated.
" Happy beside you," I said softly ;
" lonely without you. John, I kno w
now why I have not been happy since
Rudolph came."
" You are mine," he said, oh, so ten
derly. 'And I put my hand in his, and
let him press, one kiss upon my lips.
Then 1 pushed back the curtains fully,
and went into the drawing room.
Lilian was still at the piano, but Ru
dolph was still standing by the window
watching the rain with gloomy brow. ; I
crossed the - room- quickly to his side,
while John stopped to speak to Lilian.
"Rudolph," L said quietly,, "you
must not go away."
He flushed, and said:
"Debby 1 You heard 1
"Yes. I I "
John came to my rescue as uauaL
Taking Lilian's hand he led her forward,
smiling as he said :
" Do you not understand, Rudolph 1
Change partners,"
And that told the whole story. There
were two weddings in October, and
Lilian went with Rudolph to Europe,
while J ohn and 1 settled down in my
old home, with Aunt Charlotte for our
guest until her own child returns to her.
Yellow Fever.
A letter from the South gives the fol
lowing description of the course of the
disease, from the time the first symptoms
are observed :
The fever usually begins suddenly (in
the most part during the night or early
morning), with a sens' of chilliness, fol
lowed by heat, . pain in the back, head
and limbs, the pain being sometimes
very severe. The stomach grows sensi-
tive : nausea is excited, and
comes on, either spontaneously or from
something that has been eaten. The
skin is dry and hot : thirst is excessive ;
the eyeballs are painful, 'suffused, and
the eyes have the expression seen in
drunkenness. The tongue is coated, and
its edges red; the face has a peculiar
flush about an inch above and be
low the eves. The upper part of the
abdomen is tender : there is burnic
with a feeling of weight and oppression
in the pit of the stomach. Anxiety and
restlessness are marked traits of the
disease ; terror is often expressed in the
face of the sufferer, and sometimes a
gloomy threatening : the expression be
mg so striking and ipeculiar that, once
seen, it is apt to be remembered. These
are the first symptoms which last from
four to seventy hours, the average being
thirty-six to forty-eight
The second stage is a diminution of
the unfavorable signs; the skin growing
moister, the pain less, the pulse calmer,
the countenance more natural. But the
yellowness of the skin, which begins on
the eyelid, extends over , the face and
deepens in hue. If, however, it has not
appeared before, it does not appear now,
This stage generally continues from
twelve to eighteen hours, though it may
be prolonged to double the time. Some
times it is not marked at all, and occa
sionally it is altogether absent
The third stage is characterized by
prostration; the pulse grows weaker;
the skin yellowish ; irritability of the
stomach and vomiting increase. This is
often incessant ; at first, perhaps a color
less, ropy, acid liquor ; but now, when
the fever is malignant, it begins to show
dark flakes, becoming darker vnd more
numerous, until the liquor resembles
soot or coffee grounds and water. This
is the black vomit, which is, in nearly
every case, the forerunner of death.
The quantity is frequently very great,
and ejected with little effort Sometimes
diarrhea now occurs ; the Weakness in
creases; the pulse gets very feeble; the
breathing labored and irregular; the
tongue black and tremulous ; the skin is
cold and clammy, and the patient mut
tering in delirium, passes away. The
body turns saffron or orange color, and
otten brown like mahogany or bronze.
presenting an unsightly appearance, and
needing to be speedily buried.
In mild cases the symptoms are very
different, the heat alid thirst being
trifling ; the vomiting slight, and the pa
tients trequently not keeping their beds.

cases, the patients scarcely acknowledg

day, to increase our knowledge of the

and so changeable at different times and
places, and under different conditions, as
to brave medical learning and practice.

Epidemics. "
In all ages of the world men have
been afflicted with three foes war, ies-
tilence and famine. Rapid methods of
transportation have checkmated famine.
Science has in a measure ameliorated
the horrors of war. Human charity is
endeavoring to mitigate the frightful
fever of pestilence, but thus far in the
history of the race, man has been , lees
successful in fighting epidemics 'than
anything else. Some few secrets he has
wrung from nature, but just as he has
begun to plume himself upon his tri
umphs . tne ; malady takes some new
form and renews its ravages.
it is now said that Asiatic cholera is
appearing in the East, cettmz readv to

They have heretofore so ravaged the
civilized world as to have, in some in
stances, a marked influence on the his

one time almost exterminated the Ro

tbe correct pronunciation of the Latin
tongue was lost, and the language

cause that obliterated the mound build

There are those who deny that the

shall have to subscribe. The next great
question is how to find the germ and
how to kill it.
