The Mclthorpe.s went down by train
the next week but one, leaving the pack
ing boxes on Htorage and taking only
nine trunks. Tor Harper Castle was not
many miles from Saratoga, and Mrs.
Meltfiorpe intended that "dear Norine"
should have the benefit of the fashion
"Albert Harper is as rich as Crcesus,'
thoughl tho maneuvering mother, "anil
there's no reason that some of the money
shouldn't be spent ou his nieces!"
.She had not seen much of tho Harpers,
of Harper Castle, of late years, because
there had been no very particular warmth
of direction between herself and her sis
ter. "If 1 had supposed." reasoned Mrs.
Melthorpe, "that Artemis was going to
marry rich, 1 should have treated her
very differently those years that she
lived at home with me. JSut Melthorpe
said thet" was no reason sho shouldn't
earn her living and save us tho extra ex
pense of a lady's maid, and of course all
that is a bygone now, and if we play our
cards well we can have a homo ut Har
per l!astle for the rest of our lives!"
Tho elegant open landau with its deep
bay horses glittering with gold plated
harness, and its two coachmen in black
livery, was waiting at tlie station.
Norine entered it. more liko royal Juno
than ever. Mrs. Melthorpe bustled after
her. and Hyacinth seated herself timidly
at the back of the carriage. I
"This is something like," said Norine,
languidly exultant. "Mamma, we've,
been grubs all our lives, now wo are coin-j
mencing to bo butterllies. I must say, I
like to feel my wings."
And Hyacinth was silent. j
Col. Harper met them at the door a
superb arched portal beneath a row of
Coriuihiau columns. lie was a hand
some, middle aged gentleman, his hair
just sprinkled witli gray, his keen, dark
eyes sparkling through eyo glasses.
Norine kissed him effusively. Mrs. Mel-j
thorpo squeezed his hand. Hyacinth
shrank back, scarcely daring to appro
priate any of the welcome to herself.
"Pray walk in," said the colonel. "I
was just considering the propriety of
writing to you when I received tho let
ter announcing j our speedy visit."
"My dear Albert! Of wViting to us?" ,
"Yes," said Col. Harper, ushering1
them into a stately drawing room. "I

"Artemis has been dead a year now," ,
went on the colonel, in cool, business

figure which up to this lime bad lingered '
among the shadows of the bay window j
draperies), "I wish to introduce you to

turned to New York in the livening train,
After all that was come and gone they
deemed it best speedily to retire from

for Hyacinth to remain at tlie castle.
"Sho was thoouh one whoKpiiko kind

Four dollars n week Is not a large amount
to expend fur hoard and lodging, and yet
there are ttlrls In New York supporting
themselves with that expenditure. "Oh,
ves; of course," says some one. "poor sew
ing girls on the Hast Side."
Not at all: they are healthful, bright
eyed yount? women, and their abiding
place is no less fashionable nnd high priced
n neighborhood than Kifth avenue, near
Eighteenth street. The aforesaid young
women liu've not been drilled in the school
of poverty and necessity either. They aru
simple, self reliant, well educated daugh
ters of tho south and west, who havo come
to study the art of technical design at Mrs.
Cory's School of Industrial Art, and don't
want to spend any more of their fathers'
nnd brothers' money about it than is ncc
Upon tlie top floor of the big building at
1.11 Fifth avenue are these abodes of econo
my nnd miniature housekeeping. Haeh
room Is occupied by two girls, who pay
two dollars a week apiece for rent. Then
they each put two dollars a week in a
household purse, and the most determined
girl holds the purse strings. If she finds
the week's appropriation disappearing too
quickly she pulls the purse strings a little
tighter, and all luxurious tendencies are
repressed with a stern hand.
As for the kitchetistheniselves, a chapter
in the "Doll's Mouse" ought to "be devoted
to their description. Various decrepit dry
goods boxes furnish the basis of the struc
ture. ItOAIMUSO CIIKAI'I.Y.
j Portieres of the richest calico, strung on
a brass rod, close the front of the establish-
incut and protect its internal arrange-
incuts from the unfriendly eye. Tlie boards
' comprising the kitchen are put together in
that somewhat haphazard manner char
acteristic of feminine carpentering. An
occasional crookedly driven nail, splintered
plank or cleat askew bears witness to tho
anguish of mind and fliiRer expended in
the building of this shrine of cooking.
I On the top of these cabinet kitchens is
' arranged that portion of the little stock of
china which is innocent of Haws, while on
j the upper shelves of the interior aro the
less presentable utensils, the kettles and
pans, the oil stove and the spice boxes. On
tlie lower shelves aro the bread tins, the
sugar boxes, the bag of (lour and other
I stores. The ieehox is oulsldo the window,
, and the laundry behind the closet door.
1 The housekeeper for each week makes a
pilgrimage to Washington market every
j,hreo or four days, and puts out the few
dollars in her purse in the manner that
will stretch the amount the most, the bill
. of fare Including meat, fish, vegetables,
pancakes, etc., with an occasional flight
into the higher regions of cako and pastry.
Many of tho students realize enough
money from the sale of their designs for
wall papers, carpets, oilcloths, silks, tiles
1 and prints of all kinds to pay a portion of

The unequalcd success of Allcock's Po
rous Plasteus as an external remedy has
stimulated unscrupulous parties to put
forth imitations, which they endeavor to
sell on the reputation of Allcock's. It is
an absurdity to speak of them in the same
category as the genuine and original porous
plaster. Their pretensions aro unfounded,
their vaunted merit unsupported by facts,
their alleged superiority to or equality with
Allcock's a false pretense.
The ablest mcdicnl practitioners and
chemists and thousands of grateful pa
tients unite in declaring Allcock's Porous
Plasteiis the best external remedy known.
