"Oh, Mr, MdAllister will manage it all for

And sure enough Mr. McAllister did. That
is to say, he brought Mr. Waring frequently
to Miss BMlteriees studio, and the young
artiste began to surreptitiously appropriate
the features of the Teimesseeau as best she
could' from recollection after be departed on
each occasion. 1
Meantime Godfrey began to look very self
aiitisdud and to throw out certain little hints
about the conquest of an heiress, and such a
talented one at that.

serious fuce,; - - '

voluminous correspondence was no longer

who crossed and recrussed her foolscap iu

At length the acquaintance bad gone on so
pleasantly flint 'Miss Hatters thought she
might venture to unk the young mail to sit
for her,
"1 cii'n work in the costume afterward, you '
know," she snid to Miss Fortescue.
Ko when Mr. Godfrey culled nguiii the fol-
lowiiig inoriiing at the studio Miss Fortescue
stepped buck into tho little adjoining room

refused to sell it even to him? .

I'll never have a chance to wo: k up the cos
tume. I must finish it this week. Aunt
Karab is complaining because I don't ar
range about my wardrobe." ' ' '
"You'll never want any wardrobe," re
plied Miss Fortescue, "if you close the door
such weather as this. You'll melt or stifle
in short order."
"Then I'll risk bis coming and leave it
open." And she did.
When the t young ladies arrived at the
studio quite early, one or two mornings later,
Miss Batiurlee found a letter awaiting Jier.
Bhe sat down to read it, and was so long at
the tuk that Miss Foricscue began to wonder
and inquii'ed us to the artiste's perplexity.
"It's a proposal I'm considering," replied
Maud. . ! '
"indeed! That's diversion. Ilovv funnyjbe
portrait looks. Ah, if he should see it!"
Maud frowned.
"I'd like to burn the old thing!"
"But you couldn't, my love; there's no fire,
thank fortune!"
"Xiisteu to this impudence!" cried Maud, and
began to read aloud :.
" 'Mv Dkar Miss Macd Though I have
known you so short a time, 1 do not believe
you will be wholly surprised to learn that I

" 'My dear Miss Muud, your own Godfrey,'
repeated Mis Fortescue. "Ah, jny child, did
I not warn thoe? Well, what to dor"
Maud covered tho portrait with an iuqictu
Ous movement.
"ril give tlie presumptuous 'outb a little
lesson," she answered. "Mr. McAllister suys
ho has an exalted- tyca of his powers; that
he's been virtually engaged to a little girl
down at bis home for some time past."
As 2 o'clock approached Mr. Godfrey's
heart beat with oonfldent exhilaration. lie
meant to show his friend McAllister a thing or j
two. McAllister bad undertaken to remind
him of Mubel Clare. IIo tossed lus bead as be
remembered this. "I guess there ain't many
girls but would be glad of a chance at me,"
he said, as be set out for Miss Satterlee't
studio. lie expected that Maud would It
shy at first But gradually the would com
around. He purchased a large bunch of
rosea as be proceeded en his way. '
j Maud was alone apparently. She smiled
and took the roses with many thanks.' "
"Pray sit down,". she said. ."You look
quite warm."
Mr. Godfrey drew up a chair.. ,
"You received my note?"
"Your notel Oh, yes, of course." .
"And what did you think of the ideal" ha
queried, with delightful self complacency,
What did I think? Why,' of course, I
thought you meant it as joka I'm sure I
ho$e you did, because you know, or rather
yoa ought to know, though, perhaps, you
don't know, and I'm sure I'd feel dreadful if
I thought you'd been led to suppose the
truth is, Mr. Waring, I'm engaged to a gen
tleman who is now in Europel"
Godfrey turned pale. - , r . r,
"Engaged!" he cried, tragically. "Why,
for that mutter, so am I. But I'd break any
engagement for you!"
Maud arose, looking very grave. '
"I am sorry to bear you say so. I have
beard so much about southern honor."
"But you won't decide at ouoc," he stam
mered. "Promise me to think It over."
Miss Maud regarded him coldly.
"You must have misunderstood me. There
is nothing further to 1 said, and will you
please excuse tner She 'turned toward the
other room, and Godfrey had no choice but
to leave. He was iu such a state of mind be
tween disappointment and chagrin that be
left hit bat upon ,lb sofa and went bare
beaded all t he way down to the street. a 4"
He had gone half a block when be discov
ered why i-ople were staring at him. Then
could be go back?! And yet the hat
was new, and Oodfiy wus just a little liosa
about unnecessary exnse. He therefore re
turned and eliinlied the ftairs softly, hoping
she might still be in the inner room ano
would not bear him enter. ' 1 ,; .. '. f J
But as he reached the threshold of the
studio be was greeted with aU astonishing
sight. Kot only Maud, but also Miss Fortes
cue had emerged from the inner room; they
apparently were taking great pleasure in re
garding a picture upou tiie easel, which had
been moved from its customary position.
They stood with their backs to the door. .'
"An excellent likeness," said Miss Forte
cue, ; and the two young ladies laughed
heartily. .
"r might pity him,"' said Maud, if be
weren't so capable of pitying no, adoring
himself.".-... .:!.,.... ...,. -
Jw then they moved a little, and Godfrey
caught a glimpse of his own portrait, ragged,
batted, flannel garmented plainly uliuost a

For a moment he was fairly stunned; then,
turning, he fled, hatless as before and chok

Is Without (Juration the Safest of

In spite of all that has been said of '
other building material brick Js,( still
and is likely to remain . the favorite
building material. There is nothing
except a Wedge wood crucible that will'
withstand Are nearly, as well, and the
smoothness and sharpness with which
good bricks for fronts can he produced
with cheapness and dispatch, puts this,
material further in the lead of its com-,
petitors in their respective processes '
Iron Is confessedly unlit for building
purposes where it may exposed to the
weather or fire, and is rapidly going out
of use. Stone will always have its uses
in combination with brick and terra-
cotta, but stone will not weather any
better in this climate than well-burned
brick, nor does it begin to withstand
fire as well; besides, even with, every
Improvement in the manipulation of
stone, it is so much dearer as to leave it
out of competition with brick for the
heavy portion of the walls. The use of
various materials is wise anl the effect
upon the architecture of tho city is
handsome, but when enthusiasts in one
of the other materials assert a supre
macy of their favorite over brick, they
reckon without their host Egypt, the
land of all others where stone was most
available, dealt ryot more heavily in
brick. Along with her ruins of stone
are yet to be seen imposing piles of
brick, and sun-baked brick at that, not
more time-worn than the massive stones
around them. .While the sun-baked
brick of the cities of Assyria under the
damp, hot climates becomes, in course
of ages, shapeless mounds, the kiln
baked face bricks are as sharp and clean
as ever, and testify to the indestructi
bility ;of a well-made brick. Parts bf
the walls of Koine built by Aurelian,
of brick, still remain practically perfect
in the ruins of thoso walls not .utilized
in the building of modern Rome. Hut
it is hardly necessary to cite instances
of the-durability of brick. Its friends 1
