MARGARET A ROM AUNT-
Blip of parchment, dim and old
Yet a tale it doth unfoid;
"Farewell, lover; you'll regret
This was all, and "Margaret.'
Yellow Wt of gossip! for
Ninety years the escritoire
Hath Its secret kept and yet ,
X would know it, Margaret.
I can see the lovers now
He hath curls about his brow
Powdered; rings with rubies set
All his thoughts for Margaret.
She with garments of the Bow,
Of a century ago;
Sweet of disposition yet,
- How your heart ached, Margaret I
How your heart ached as you saw
Him some other beanty draw
In the reel or minnet
While yon flirted, Margaret!
For a lover's quarrel came.
And yon thought your passions flame
Out; but then your eyes were wet,
Bays this parchment, Margaret.
Fellow feelings bind ns; sc
I am curious to know
If he ever felt regret?
Well, I hope so, Margaret!
Within 100 miles of my town there

wear made-over dresses and trimmed

The only thing I can compare this
rift to, at the moment. Is a bit of the

ihe worst possible place for it.
To show how useful this little gift
nay De made in cloudy weather is my
reason for Introducing you to Winnie.
for that is the name of this everyday
etna or a girl Winnie Smith.
Winnie's life has not been marked by
my startling events, and a certain win
ter day, not long ago, will serve my
purpose as well as any other.
She rose, then, a little later than usu
al that morning. It was cold in her
room, and she laughed to hear her teeth
shatter together as she made a quick
toilet, and then ran downstairs to
Breakfast wasn't quite ready. The
baby was crying, his fists doubled up,
and very red in the face; Mrs. Smith.
with an anxious brow, was trying to
pacify him, while Mr. Smith was re
reading the last night's newspaper with
t moony expression of countenance.
The instant Winnie appeared on the
cene there was a change, though all
Ihe said was "Good morning." The
baby stopped crying and held out his
arms to Winnie, who took him and be-
ran talking to him; Mrs. Smith's brow
oecame smootn and tranquil as she
rose to finish setting the food on the
table, and Mr. Smith smiled over the
top of his newspaper. In less than five
minutes the baby was sitting in his
high chair pounding the tray with bis
two little fists and crowing, while the
rest of the family were laughing at his
energy and good spirits as they ate
taeir urea mast ana cheerfully dis
cussed their plans for the day.
At about 8 o'clock Winnie started to
school for there was an errand to be
done on the way at a store. The girl
at the counter had sat up nearly all
night nursing a sick brother and looked
and felt as cross as two sticks. Before
Winnie had fairly told her errand the
ftrl looked pleasanter; before the par
cel was done up she smiled and as
Winnie disappeared through the door
the girl really looked as though she
thought the world a very nice place.
And all that Winnie bad done was to
make a few pleasant remarks about
the weather and prevent the girt from
taking down a lot of unnecessary boxes
from the shelves, because she saw the
girl was tired, and to smile and nod a
good-by when she turned to go.
As Winnie came out of the store she
caught sight of a little ragged boy sit
ting on the curbstone. A large tear
was rolling down his grimy cheek, snd
he looked the picture of woe. Winnie
stopped and spoke to him and ques
tioned him, and found out that he was
cold, yes, and hungry.
"Dear me, this will never do-" sa?d
Winnie. "Come with me, my little
man." and she led him across the street
into the grocery store. As her retool
was at a considerable distaneo from
her home, Winnie usually rode n the
cars one way. and so she had just 5
cents with her. With the 5 cents she
bought a puffy mince turnover and a
shiny bun, and when she had asked the
storekeeper to let the boy sit beside the
radiator while he ate these delicacies,
she went on her way rejoicing.
The little boy gazed after her, his
cheeks distended with pastry, and a
grin of perfect content ou his dirty lit
The storekeeper, too, who had been
scolding his chore boy In a frightful
manner when Winnie opened the door,
now looked as mild as any lamb, quite
benevolent, in fact, and the chore boy
was whistling softly to himself as he
wiped the dust from a shelf.
Winnie walked briskly along, for It
was getting near school time. A good
"uaoy of the people she met glanced at i
her at they passed, and the glance
seemed somehow to hare a cheering ef
fect on them, for their eyes brightened
and they stepped more quickly and
held their heads a little higher.
When quite near the schuolhousc
Winnie overtook one of her classmates.
There was a cloud on nfs face, but the
Instant she spoke to him ft disappeared,
and he actually smiled as he turned to
ward her, though the tone of his voice
was still somewhat lugubrious.
"Have you done those two problems
In algebra?" he asked.
"No," laughed Winnie, "have yon?
"I sat up half the night trying and
I don't believe they can be done," said
the boy, bitterly.
"Oh, yes," answered Wnnle. "v:il,
Bailey told me last night that he had
done one of them and t mean to get a
them in good earnest as soon ns 1 gel
the history lesson off my wind. 1 think
we can do them."
"Perhaps we can," said the boy, more
hopefully, and by the rime they reach
ed the scboolhouse steps he was nc
only convinced that he could but resolv
ed that he would do them, and was
quite cheerful in consequence.
As I said before. It was a cold morn
Ing, and the schoolroom felt the effect
of it. The heat didn't come as it should
and the teacher and all the scholars
had blue noses and their shoulders
were drawn up.
Winnie and the boy were two sec
onds late, and Miss Miller frowned us
shi heard their footsteps In the hall.
but when she saw Winnie her frown
faded out. Moreover, as Winnie .Talk
ed to her seat nearly every pair of
shoulders In the room went down

some mysterious way, temper! the
Nothing of particular moment hap
pened during the forenoon, unless It
was the falling out of Nellie Patterson
and Julia Davis at recess. Their eyes
were flashing and tbey were making
the most ill-natured remarks to each
other, when Winnie chanced their way,
I don't know whether she said any
thing or only looked In tbelr eyes till
they couldn't help laughing, but I do
know that two minutes later Nellie and
Julia were pacing the hall arm in arm
and on the best of terras.
There were seven scholars who lived
so far away that they always brought
their dinner, excepting when they for
got it, as did Annie and Frank Carroll
on this particular day. Wlunie spied
them standing apart from the others.
staring disconsolately out of a window,
and Immediately divined the trouble.
Almost before you could say "Jack
Robinson" she bad gone to tbem and
before you could count fifty the three
were seated, with Winnie's lunch bas
ket In their midst, making merry over
the shortness of their commons. Then
the other four joined the group and di
vided their lunch also, and as the moth
ers of some of them had been particu
larly bountiful in the matter of food
that day the whole seven fared well
enough, and I dare say ate all that was
good for tbem.
On the way home from school at
night Winnie saw two boys on the side
walk ahead of her slyly npset a fruit
stand, behind which sat an old Irish
woman. A policeman who bad come
op onperceived seized one of the boys,
the other took to his heels, and the old
woman gesticulated and stormed with
rage and righteous Indignation.
Winnie hastened her steps, and, lay
ing her hand on the policeman's sleeve,
asked him very earnestly if he would
not please let the boys go, just long
enough to help pick up the fruit, which
was rolling about the sidewalk and out
into the street.
In an Incredibly short time, if you
had been there, you would have seen
the policeman walking serenely down
the street, a strange gentleman right
ing the fruit stand, Winnie and the
two boys picking up apples, oranges,
bananas and peanuts, as - if for a
wager, w n tie tne ota woma n was
laughing to see so many working for
her while sue sat still, and saying,
leniently, that "b'ys" would be 'bys"
she supposed, as long as the "wurruhl"'
rue ooy tne policeman bad let go
came running after Winnie when she
had started on her way agalu, and
thrust a tremendous big apple, which
he bad just bought of the woman, into
her hand, and then sped away with an
ear-splitting whoop to join the other
When Winnie came within three
doors of her own door she saw the tel-
egrapn messenger leave a message
with Mrs. Alden. Mrs. Alden stood
In the doorway after reading it, with
perplexed and troubled expression.
and glanced at Winnie as if she bad
half a mind to say something to her.
Is It bad news, Mrs. Alden?" ven
tured Winnie, sympathetically.
Then Mrs. Alden spoke quickly
enough. "Yes," she said, "my sister Is
111, and I ought to go to her on the very
next car, but I let my girl go away for
the afternoon and evening, and father
isn't feeling well, and I don't dare
leave him alone
Why, I will come In and stay with
him," said Winnie heartily. "I'd just
as lief as not I'd like to."
Would you?" said Mrs. Alden, the
troubled look vanishing. "I should be
so much obliged."
"I'll run home and tell mother, and
be back In a minute," said Winnie, hur
When she returned Mrs. Alden was
coming out of the gate with bonnet and
cloak on. "You won't have to stay
more than an hour she said as she put
on her gloves, "for Mr. Alden will come
home at 6," and, giving Winnie a few
directions, she hastened away.
Old Mr. Alden was in one of his mel
ancholy moods and Insisted, in spite of
Winnie's protestations, that he had
outlived his usefulness; that he took
no comfort in life and was only a bur
den and an expense; that everybody
would be better off and happier if he
was out of the way; that he ought to
have died years before, and the Lord
bad surely forgotten him.
Winnie knew the old gentleman was
fond of telling stories of his younger
days, and so, when there came a little
pause in his lamentations, she artfully
led up to the subject of those same
younger days, and it was hardly any
time at all before the old man was tell
ing with great gusto the story of a fa
vorite horse he. had once owned, and
Winnie was listening as interestedly as
though she bad not heard Iready the
same story at least three times. j
It was long In the telling, and when
the end was reached and old Mr. Alden
was laughing In great glee orer the cli
max It was time tr get his tea. Win
nie toasted his bread and made the tea
by the sitting-room fire. Ihen, when
young Mr. Alden did not come, old Mr.
Alden said Winnie mi st eat something,
so she toasted more bread and ate It
while he started a new story, which
she had heard only once before.
This was a longer one and It branch
ed off Into so many other stories that
It was almost 8 o'clock before It was
Just then young Mr. Alden came. He
had been delayed and was exceedingly
tired and dispirited, having been sorely
tried by a foollBb witness and lost his
case for he was a lawyer. He bad
dreaded coming Into his own house to
see his father's mournful visage and
bear his querulous complainings.
When, therefore, be found bis father
fairly radiant with cheerfulness, with
a smlllng-faced girl sitting beside him,
he sank Into a chair and drew a deep
breath of relief.
When Winnie explained why she was
there and rose to go he rose also to go
with her, though she told him she
wasn't the least bit afraid. Indeed,
she would have preferred to go alone,
for young Mr. Alden was so polite and
dlgnlded and knew so very much that
she stood a good deai In awe of bltu.
As tbey walked along she wished she
could think of something to say to
him. The stars were shining and it
suddenly occurred to her that she had
forgotten the names of three very
bright stnra that were always close to
gether In a line, and so she asked him j
timidly about them.
Now It happened that astronomy had
always been a favorite study with
young Mr. Alden and be nor only an
swered Winnie's question gladly, but
stood for several minutes after they
had reached the gate, telling her about
the different constellations.
Then he thanked her courteously for
staying with bis father, bade her good
night and went back, looking up at the
stars and feeling rested and refresher).
Winnie tripped up the walk and Into,
the house, also thlnkiug of the stars.
After she had bad a little talk wllh
her mother and gone to look adoringly
at the babr sleeping In his crib Winnie
lit a lamp and went upstairs to her
room to bed.
So ended the day for Winnie Smith,
and she fell asleep, never suspecting
that she bad a gift or dreaming that
she was otherwise than a most ordl
nary, commonplace kind of a girl.
New Inventions and Oda Conre't.
There have been many novelties In
vented for ocean navigation, but one
of the most extraordinary of these, and
the latest. Is the so-called roller steam
er which Is being built by M. Basin, a
French engineer. The steamer Is In the
form of a lanre raft, sunoorted liv hal
low iron wheels which revolve In the
water and support the deck some twen-
ty to twenty-three feet above the sur-

tains that the surface friction will bo I
minimized by the boat's rolling over
the water Instead of cutting through it.
The trial steamer for service on the
British Channel is now being built, and
the first test Is eagerly looked forward
to by the inventor and his friends, who
are confident that the vessel will mark
the beginning of a new era In naval
The boat which Is now being built will
be 131 feet in length, and will have ft
breadth of 39 feet. She is to consist of
platform having on eacb side four
enormous wheels, and these will be re
volved by the engines, which are to be
centrally located. The first trip Is to
be made from Newhaven to Dieppe, a
aistanee or snoot sixty nines, and a j
calm day will be selected. There Is '
usually a choppy sea at this point, with
little, short waves, which the roller ;
steamer will. It Is expected, easily ride.
The inventor claims that an ocean
steamer built upon this plan would rock
but little, even in the stormiest weather,
and that the hollow wheels which sup
port her in the water will give her great
stability. He expects to be able to at
tain a high rate of speed with the roller
A water bicycle has been built upon j
somewhat similar model, but Its
wheels were fitted with nius that caught j
the water as they revolved, and thus
pushed the machine forward. M. Bazln j
does not seem to have thought of this :

Is now engaged In building are smooth ,

There are some people who maintain j
that this remarkable boat will be able j
to steam out of the water onto dry land j
wbenever a shelving beach may be
found, and that if properly constructed
she may be made quite as available for
locomotion over country roads as on j
sea or river.
Club Women Cannot Smoke.
Two of the women's clubs in London,
the Writers' and the Pioneer, have
pronounced against their members)
smoking. The Writers' Club, thai
membership of which Is exclu
sively composed of women
nalists or authors, taboos
altogether. Some of the mem-
wblch is exclusively composed of worn-
en Journalists or authors, taboos to- solid and open laced stitches. Huge or
bacco altogether. Some of the mem- : namental monograms are also conspic
bers accustomed to cigarettes or cigars ous in napery and bed linen, as well
openly indulged therein, after remon- as on tea cloths. Three letters are a
st ranee. A meeting was recently held good rule in case of house linen, one
and a great majority decreed that "any ; for the respective initials of the Chria
lady found smoking must resign mem- tian name of the bride and groom and
bership." j the third for the family name.
At the Pioneer members may smoke
upon retirement to a sort of crib, into
which non-members are not allowed to
penetrate, and would soon quit If they
got there. There are other ladies clubs
where the cigarette Is under the ban.

TENNE8SEE HORSE TRADERS.
Their Devlon Ways of Maktna? Poor
Horses Bell Well.
The first Monday of every month Is
horse-swapping day In Tennessee.
There are thousands of men who gain
their livelihood by their wits in this
business. The tricks of the Tennessee
horse traders are legion, and unless a
man is accustomed to horses it Is folly
for him to depend upou bis own knowl
edge In dealing witb the tricksters In
the horse markets of the State.
WhenaTenuessee horse trader wants
to make a true-pulling horse balk, so he
can purchase him at a low price, be
mixes cuntbarides and corrosive subli
mate, and bribes the stable boy to
bathe the horse's shoulder with the mix
ture. One of the greatest frauds Is to
make a good horse appear lame. The
professional trader takes a single hair
from the tail, puts It through the eye of
a needle, lifts the front leg, and presses
the skin bet wen the outer and middle
tendous. Then he shoves the needle
through, cuts off the hair at eacb end
and lets the foot down. The horse goes
lame within twenty minutes. When he
desires to make a horse stand by bis
food and not eat It, he greases the front
teeth and the roof of the mouth with
beef tallow, and the horse will not eat
until Its mouth is washed out.
A horse Is made to appear badly
foundered by the fastening of a fine
wire tightly around its fetlock, between
the foot and heel. The wire Is never
left on over nine hours, or the horse
would become permanently lame.
Many men buy nice-looking animals.
but by the time they get the horses
home find these to be badly afflicted
with the heaves. The trader has sim
ply to force half a pound of small shot
Into a horse's stomach to disguise the
heaves.. A small quantity of melted
butter poured into the ear of a horse
will make the owner think the- horse
has the glanders.
When a horse goes dead lame In one
shoulder the defect Is always disguised
by a similar lameness in the other
shoulder. This Is done by taking off
the shoe and inserting a bean between
It and the foot.
A lame horse Is nerved to appear at
Its best by a small Incision about half
way from the knee to the joint on the !
outside of the leg. At the back part of ,
the sbtnbone Is a small white tendon i
which Is cut off and the external wound j
Is closed with a stitch. The horse will
then walk on the hardest pavement j
and not limp. White horses are beautl- ;
fled with black spots often by the ap- !
plication of powdered lime and litharge ;
boiled together. When a professional ,
trainer finds a man who wants a band- j
some horse he often produces a star in f
Its forehead by spreading warm pitch
on a piece of coarse towel of just the
size of the star and applying It to the
part shaved. The pitch is left on for
three days, and then Is washed away
j w!th of Stroll until the wound Is

There was just one vacant seat in the

the man opposite.
He reached over and took It, Every
body hoped to see Johnny get his
deserts, and a bush of expectancy fell
on that car. But what that scheming
woman did was to pick up the boy,
cuddle him In her arms, and give him
a comfortable seat In her lap. And
the little wretch smiled at the general
discomfiture, while the man opposite
let the basket of eggs jounce as they
would, and glared with murderous
ferocity at Johnny and his mother.

CITY OF GOOD MANNERS.
Polltenea a General Characteristic
of the Inhabitants of Florence.
If I wished to teach an awkward
child, youth or girl good manners by
example I should send him or her to
Florence. There may be 111-manuercd
persons there, but I never saw om.
Poor people behave witb the Stiave dig
nity which need In England to stamp
the lady or gentleman. Most persons
are brainy, but cleverness Is not eagtr
to shine. It Is very subdued and more
oily than corrosive. The charm of
Florence steals on one like the wit of
Its clever lubnbltunts. The senses are
soothed In all directions by harmonious
manners and objects. Architects un
derstood chiaroscuro not less than the
great painters and sculptors. One never
wearies of the streets and public build
ings; tbelr aspects constantly and
strongly vary, according to the course
of the sun. Lights and shades at 10 in
the forenoon are wholly different from
what they will be at 4 In the afternoon.
The Florentine women have Interest
ing, though not beautiful faces. But
one has only o walk Into the market
to see country girls who would have
done for models of Raphael's virgin
mothers. One Is struck In the galleries
with the nice judgment with which the
pictures are bung. What more lofty In
sentiment than the tomb of Lorenzo
De Medici? Loftiness Is an attribute
of Florence architecture, palatial or
domestic. The doors of private houses
might pass in England for portals. One
feels them to be great facts In their
Talking of harmonious things re
minds me of the Boboll gardens. Is
there a spot In England, the land of
stately and lovely seats, that at all ap
proaches tbem? In situation and tran
quil, generous loveliness, I can only
think of one the Duke of Northumber
land's terraced gardens at bis place In
Surrey. The Boboll Eden, where the
Prince and Princess of Naples still
court seclusion, has the advantage over
the Surrey paradise of being under a
revealing sky. Every shade of green
ery, every floral hue Is well brought
out. One sees the faultless texture of
statues and fountains mellowed by
time. In so strong a light a well-ordered
design Is required, and one has
it, the marbles are the climax. They
are to the horticultural beauties as bril

Florence Is not what It was In the
grand ducal days. Still, It retains the
air of a capital with a long and illus
trious history. The ladies dresses are
only provincial when measured by the
Paris standard, to which Italian wom
en above the peasant class generally
submit more's the pity Paris fashions
only suit French women, unless ap
plied by French hairdressers and fem
mes de chambre. An English or a Ger
man face under a Paris hat or bonnet
is at a dreadful disadvantage if the
hair has not been first dressed by a
French artiste capillaire. He places
the hat, through the medium of the
hair, In harmonfoffs relation with the
face. I fancy these French coiffeurs
are not much employed by Italian
ladies. London Truth.
A simple experiment In producing
rain may be made by the use of a cylin
der of glass, about four Inches In di
ameter and eight Inches high. This is
to be half filled with 92 per cent, aleo
hoL A china saucer is placed over the
cylinder, which Is then put Into a hot-
water bath and heated quite hot, but
not to tne boiling point for alcohol.
Then the cylinder, still covered. Is care
fully and quickly placed upon ft table
in a cool portion of the room. Very
soon vapor will be discovered on the
under side of the saucer, clouds will
form and from them little drops fall
upon the alcohol. This miniature
shower may last for an hour or more.
The top part of the cylinder clears di
rectly so that the condensation is seen
midway between the alcohol and the
saucer. It Is a curious and Interesting
sight, the water below the clouds and
the clear atmosphere above. If im
mediately after removing the cylinder
from the hot-water bath a cold saucer
replaces the hot one. storm currents are
discernible. Often the currents will as
cend upon one side of' the cylinder and
descend upon the other. Conducted up
on a somewhat larger scale, this ex
periment would be of great interest to
classes of students. It Is not an ex
pensive one, and Is very easily man
aged even by amateurs.
She Was Cremated.
Mrs. Massingbred, who recently died
In England, waa a woman whom all
American club women that went abroad
were esecially desirous of meeting. As
founder and president of the well
known Pioneer Club of London her
fame ha d cb iefly crossed t he water,
though at home she was distinguished
for much other progressive work. She
was a powerful leader, from her wealth
and zeal. In the temperance cause, and
u coming into an extensive heritage
about 10 years ago, she turned all the
public houses of her estate Into coffee
taverns and social clubs. She was an
Itnti-vivisectlonist, an ardent worker
for women's suffrage, and withal a
4-harming and companionable woman.
