" 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 linst I made some blunder, for John ' 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. , I was glad when the dance was over, and we wandered off to the" conserva tory. Nobody minded, for Rudolph and ' ' I had been engaged for five years, and this ball was one of the many given in honor of his home comms. He had ' gone to California to seek a fortune, leaving me plodding away at music . teaching to support myself, Aunt Char- . lotte and Lilian, who was then only fourteen years old. . We were poor enough those days. I)Oth Rudolph and his betrothed, and for four years there was but little variation m the monotony of money gained for both. Then fortune gave her wheel Budden. most unexpected whirl in our favor. Rudolph made a successful specu lation that lifted him at once to wealth and my grandmother died and left me an heiress. It was a little bewildering at first to be mistress of a handsome country seet. n Lniiun .... .1 inct . m r-f il (I n 1 l a large bank account, but I had not al ways been poor, and I soon became ac customed to my splendor. 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- ingwas still my friend, as he had been .- when mamma was living and poor papa's affairs were found to be so embarrassed after his death. 1 here was.no mystery about my en- 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 dolph. while mv trosseau was made in New York, and wedding trip dis- cussed. ;, : 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 charmingly. 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. . lie had been heavily burdened, ; 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 difficulty. But it was-all over. I was rich. Ru dolph was at home, and as tenderly lov ing as I could wish. . Only as we 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 And I was contented, again, until, assmg Ltiuan u aoor, long aiier we re 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. ' They would sing gleeful duets to gether, Kudolph s clear tenor well sup porting Lilian's sweet, pure notes, while I humiliating to confess, had become so disgusted with leading childish fingers through scales never touched i and exercises that piano when it could be avoided. 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 feltl-" "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 vomiting 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. Then, again' there are apparently mild cases, the patients scarcely acknowledg ing they are ilL refusing to lie down or be prescribed for, and yet sinking sud denly into death. Ihe lever vanes in duration. Very bad cases terminate in a few days, though commonly continu ing from three to nine days, convales cence being almost always slow. Path ology has not done much, even to this day, to increase our knowledge of the disease, which still remains enigmatical and so changeable at different times and places, and under different conditions, as to brave medical learning and practice.

She is tall, rather slender, her head of moderate size, hair streaked with gray, eyes bright, hearing and voice good. Though a trifle lame, she stood erect for an hour, and delivered her opinions marked by shrewd sense and much hu mor. She is most earnest for temper ance, and has a better opinion ot men than of women, who, she thinks, are often frivolous and too expensive lux uries to be sustained by any ordinary income. At the close she sang a song m tolerable style, and retired with certain inborn grace . and dignity. Her two oldest children are dead ; but she has three others one of her daughters is 80 and upward living at Battle Creek, Michigan.

" 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 march around the globe. It arises in the crowded slums of the Old World where filth and disease are protected by a fanatical religion and are the heritage oi ages, it nnds in the Hong caravans that wind over the arid deserts to the tomb of the prophet, at once its choicest prey and its test -method of propaga uon. r rom thence it works its way along the I, Mediterrant an"to Italy, ranee and then to the : sea coast from whence eveiy ship brings it to the ntw world. This has been the .history of plagues from time whereof (in the sol- elmnity of the legal phrase) the mem ory of man runneth not to the contrary, They have heretofore so ravaged the civilized world as to have, in some in stances, a marked influence on the his tory of humanity. A plague at one time almost exterminated the Ro man people so terrible in fact, that tbe correct pronunciation of the Latin tongue was lost, and the language changed. It was perhaps the same cause that obliterated the mound build ers in our own country, for had they been conauered it is probable they would have taught their victors some of their own . arts and given to : the dominant being now a Bynonym for pest houses, There are those who deny that the feyer is contasrious, but there is no hypothesis that satisfies so many of the conditions of the disease as the spas modic theory. To this, doubtless, we shall have to subscribe. The next great question is how to find the germ and how to kill it. "Do you call that clothest" said a sturdy British customs official to the woman who had sworn that there was nothing in her trunk but clothes for her self and husbend, and as he spoke he pointed to six bottles of brandy.
