V Roso in “Love Lane” and What
Became of It.
They were walking down “Love
. ne” in a gay, chattering procession
girls with laurel-wreathed hats,
oung mon bearing shawls and baskets,
■ matron or two; last of all Stephen
niton, a child on either side of hint,
md in his arms little Nanny Forsythe
lalf asleep. Wherever Stephen went
hildren followed, led by attraction
rrosistible as that which draws iron
tilings to the magnet. Grown people
could not understand this attraction,
But the little ones never mistook about
it. Sleepy as she was, Nanny’s small
hand kept patting his shoulder as they
went along, and her voice cooed words
of drowsy endearment which made
Stephen smile, gloomy as he felt thtit
day. Each cheerful reply to the chil­
dren’s questions cost an effort; but he
spoke cheerfully all thesame, and tried
to keep his eyes from wandering for­
ward to where Captain Hallett walked
by the side of Milly Graves, with his
handsome head very near hers, and his
voice murmuring low sentences inau­
dible to the rest of the party. Many
glances were sent back at th s couple
from those in advance, for Neal Hallett
was the novelty of the moment, a hero
and a stranger; and the girls, who
were only too well-disposed to pull
caps for him, thoughtit “quite too bad”
of Milly to absorb his attentions as she
had done all day.
But, after all, what could Milly, what
could any girl, do, when an all-con­
quering Captain takes up his position
at her side in early morning and nevor
leaves it until late afternoon? It is
not in girl nature to resist such
tribute, and Stephanie De Witt, in
front, was partly justified in calling it
“a desperate flirtation,” although I
fear tho pout with which she spoke
was due rather to amour propre than
outraged morals. But on Milly's side
it was not all flirtation. For all her
merry, saucy ways, she was a sensitive,
credulous creature, just the woman to
give “gold for dust.” and stake her all
in that unequal barter so common in
this world of misunderstood values.
Her fair cheeks were flushed and her
blue eyes full of shy excitement as they
walked along, talking about—dear me.
what do people talk about when they
are young and of different sexes? Cap­
tain’Hallett’s fine eyes said more th in
his tongue; his martial mustache
seemed to give point and value to mere
nothings. He carried a lithe little cans
with which he emphasized his sen­
tences: now cutting the air, now be­
heading a mullein, in a way which
Milly thought fascinating. And then
Love lane was such a pretty spot, tlie
very place to be eloquent in. Its wind­
ing turns were hedged with fragrant
growths—woodbine, brier, sweet fern
and bay. Overlie id the trees met and
clasped in shady arches. Here and
there a pink honeysuckle glinted in
the network of green, or a train of
shimmering clematis. The pure prim­
rose light of a cloudless sunset sifted
down through the canopy of boughs;
a light breeze stirred, full of delicious
smalls. It was like an evening in fairy­
land.
Suddenly a turning brouzht them to
a fern-clad bank, against which, set in
a frame work of tremulous verdure,
-food one rose of p Tfect wild wood
pink, po sed at tip of a cluster of vivid
leaves. It was like an enchanted queen,
Millv thought.
’
••flow beautiful!” s'ie cried;but even
as the words left her lips the restless
•ane flew through the air, fli'-ke I the
ose from its stem, and sent it into the
lusty road, a little whirlwind of broken
leaves accompanying its fall.
"What a pity?” said she, involun-
arily.
...
“It's only a wild rose, yon know,
mrprised.
■•Hut don't von like wild roses.
"O. v< s;but there are so manv of
hem that it is hardly worih while to
vaste sentiment on a single one.” and
e Captain showed his tine teeth in a
mile that was the least bit cruel.
Millv sighed, and cast a regretful
ok behind Her gentle nature felt
r the fair despoiled thing. But.
t< r <11, there were plenty of wild
ses. as Captain Hallett said, and pres-
• y -h • forgot her symoathv and its

aake. Mrs.* Allen was intent on se-
uring to eaclt person bls or her own
>asket, Kitty Felton was counting tea-
pi ions, Stephanie hunting for a missing
»'ate. In the midst of these researches
tephen came up with the children.
Ha looked weary, and put Nanny into
her m »tiler's arms witli an air of relief,
disregarding the drowsy protest which
she uttered.
“What a lovely rose, Stephen!” said
some of the girls. “Where did you
lind it?”
“In the road,” replied Stephen,
“Somebody had switched it from its
stem and left it to die, so we picked it
i up' J-
“Yes. and Mr. Felton said it was a
saame to treat cowers so,” put in a
little boy.
The Captain listened impassively,
but Milly gave a half-pained glance at
“That was just like you,
I I the flower.
•Stephen,” she said, softly; and Stephen
brightened for the first time that day.
It seemed to Stephen, looking back,
that his love for Milly had begun when
he was a bov of five and she was a baby
in tlie cradle. He could not recollect
the time when he did not prefer her to
all other girls. At school he was her
knight, his sled, his jack-knife, his help,
always at her service. Stephen taught
her to skate, to row. It was he who
brought her the first maple sugar, the
first arbutus; he who took ner on
sleigh rides; and walked home with
her from church and the village tea
parties. Milly absorbed these services
not ungratefully, but as a Ynatter of
course. She had been used to them
from her babyhood, and could havo ai
most as well dispensed with sun or aii
out of her life; but sun and air being
never withdrawn, are rarely noticed
or alluded to.
“Dear good oh!
Stephen,” she called him. Now it if
not well for a man to lavish himself on
a woman who thinks of him only a-
“dear old Stephen."
And now Stephen was doomed t<
stand by and see a stranger appropri­
ate the object of this life-longdevotion.
He had sown, and another was to reap
his labors. Day by day all that sum­
mer long the glamour grew and deep
ened. ('aptain Hallett's leave of ab­
sence seemed of the most elastic de
scription, permitting him to stay the
entire season at Bay mouth. His morn
ings, his evenings, his noons, were
spent with Milly. Stephen sickened at
the inevitable gold-banded cap th it
met his eves whenever he entered the
house, and proved his rival in posses
sion of th*: field. Mdly greeted Sto
phen kindly always; but there was a
sense of interruption: he felt himself a
third party. Then he tried staying
away; but that was worst of all, for
his love did not notice his absence be­
yond a ear jless “Whit age it is since
wo saw you, Stephen?” This state of
affairs, of course, set people to talking,
but Milly was blushingly indignant
“It was hard,” she declared, “if a girl
couldn’t have a pleasant friend without
having such things said.” But her
pretty poutings and protestings made
little difference, and it was generally
understood that the affair, if not an ab­
solute engagement, amounted to “an
understanding,” whatever that may
mean.
At last tho long, lovely summer
came to an end, as summers will.
Scarlet boughs flamed in tho forests,
golden-rod burned along the brook­
sides. the birds tlew, and with them
Captain Hallett prepared for flight.
His orders had come to report ia Gal­
veston, Texas, and his leave-takings
were hurried. The last moment was
Milly's, and though no one knew the
exact situation of affairs, it was taken
for granted that another year would
bring orange blossoms and a wedding.
Milly's own expectations were not so
definite. No definite promise had
passed between her and her lover,
but she trusted him and waited
brightly and hopefully.
Letters
came and went; the scarlet boughs
burned into ashes and fell to the ground
in pale heaps; then came snow and the
winter, to be in turn scourged away by
the whip of the fierce New England
spring. Still Milly waited; but not so
brightly now. for the letters came less
regularly than at first. By and by they
ceased altogether. Weeks passed with­
out a word. Milly, with visions of yel­
low fever and Indians chasing each
other a ross her tired brain, wrote
and wrote aga’n; but no presage of the
real danger which threatened glanced
over till one day, opening the news­
paper. this met her eyes:
At Galveston. Texas, by the Rev. Pierre
St Cloud assist? 1 b.- the Rev. Thomas Dx
Captam Edward Hallett, tt. S A., and Blanche
Emily, only daughter ot the late Pierre St
Cloud, or Pilatk
»rids No cards.
Mrs. Graves .
irs heard no sound,
but when she w it down Milly lay
on the sofa, whit.! and rigid, the news­
paper still clasped in her cold fingers.
It was long before her senses came
back. Her mother flamed with anger,
but the girl hushed her with a weary
sob.
“We were never really engaged, you
know.”
“Not engaged! O, Millv!”
But Milly turned her face to the wall
and said no more.
Baymouth was stirred to its depths
next day by the news that Captain
Hallett was married to a Southern lady,
and that Milly Graves was down with
typhoid fever. Every one wanted to
help to nurse, above all, to know the
particulars. Such masses of blanc­
mange and jelly were sent in that poor
Mrs. Graves was at her wits' end to
know how to dispose of them. But no
one could readily aid. not even poor
.Stephen, who scarcely left the house
day or night, or ate or slept, till the
crisis passed, and Milly was pro-
nouneed out of danger.
Out of danger, but it was weeks be­
fore she could sit up, and»weeks longer
ere site came down stairs, thin, white,
shrunken—a mere shadow and wreck
of the blooming little beautv wb>
waikeit so gayly up Love lane at Ned
Hallett’s side not auite a year ago.
She was patient always, and uncom­
plaining. but she did not often smile.
Perhaps Stephen won these infrequent
smiles oftener than any one else, and
he counted them as precious payment
for all time and all trouble spent in her
service. Only once did he see her shed
tears. This was when, hoping to give
her pleasure, he brought in tho first
wild roses of the season and held them
before her. Suddenly a spasm passed
over her face, she gave a gasp, turned
aside, aud struggled for composure.
Stephen dropped the flowers as if they
burned his fingers and hurried out of
the room. A hot anger shot through
him. “He has ruined every thing for
her,” he thought. “Even a rose re­
minds her of him. Coward that he is.
They hang a man for poisoning the
water springs; why not hang him?
though hanging is too good for such a
villain as he.”
Nature’s processes of cut e are secret.
It is in their depths that wounds begin
to heal. Gradually as months went by
the renovating principle worked in
Milly. She resumed her place at homo,
the little duties and pleasures, and
took up again the burdens of life. She
was pale still, but the paleness infolded
a sweet serenity which was no less
lovely than her girlish bloom. “Milly
Graves was real improved since her
disappointment,” certain severe old
adies asserted, and they were not far
from right. Stephen adored her more
than ever. Two years later he told her
so. To his surprise, she was neither
astonished or shocked, but looked in
his eyes with a smile which was sad
and tenSer and sweet all at once.
“Dear Stephen,” she said, “this is
just like you. Do you recollecttheday
in Love lane, and the rose you picked
up out of the dust? You are doing the
same thing now, but I am not worth
it, dear, not worth the picking up.”
“Milly,” said
i ' ’ Stephen,
. ............................
trembling
with eagerness, ., “there never was a day
since I first saw you, and that was
twenty-one years ago, when I didn't
love you beyond any other living thing.
Pick you up, indeed! You. my rose of
all the world! I am not tit to touch
your stem, my darling, or handle one
of your leaves, but I love you, dearest,
with the whole of my heart. Can you
not love me a little bit in return?”
“O, Stephen, I do!” and the fair little
fingers closed over his. “There’s no­
body in the world like you. I always
knew that. It’s only—the others are
so mueh fresher, you know—fresher
and brighter, and—they might make
you happier than I can. You’re quite
sure? You really want me? Then I’ll
do my best. Why, Stephen, how hap­
py you look.”
“Happy! I should think so. when
I’ve got every thing I ever wanted in
my life,” cried Stephen.— Pittsburgh

A SHIP-DESTROYER.
Prof. Tuck’s Submarine Torpedo-Boat-
Trial Trip of the Strange Craft.
Persons walking aljng Riverside
drive at Eighty-sixth street the other
afternoon saw a black object skim­
ming along on the surface of the Hud­
son. Then they didn't see it fora long
time. Then it wouhLappcar at a dis­
tance. The object was a submarine
torpedo-boat, the work of Prof. J. L.
Tuck, who showed it off to a few
friends. The boat is intended to ap­
proach a big naval vessel during war
times under water and, having left a
couple of torpedoes under her hull, to
withdraw to a convenient distance and
fire them by means of an electric cur­
rent from a battery. The little craft
of iron and steel, weighing twenty
tons, is named the Peacemaker. She
s thirty feet over all, eight and
one-half feet breadth of beam and six
feet deep. Placed at each side of the
keel is enough lead to load the boat
to the water’s edge. To sink the vessel
below the water there are compart­
ments which can bo filled or emptied
as required. Compressed air is held in
iron pipes, to be liberated as the air
grows foul. A common rudder steers
the craft, anda horizontal rudder, cen­
trally hinged in a frame at each side
of the stern, raises or sinks the boat.
On top is a little dome twelve inches
high and fourteen inches in diameter,
with glass windows for light.
When a ship is to be blown up, as
the boat passes beneath her a string of
nsulated wire carrying two cartridges,
one at each end. is released. The cart­
ridges are filled with a powerful ex­
plosive and are lightened with corks,
so that they wdl rise against the bottom
if the vessel. Th in bv means of tho
•lectric battery, after the boat h iswith-
[ Ir.iwn, the explosion is effected. Tho
i little craft dived to a depth of forty feet
I 1 n the river, and then t >ok a subma­
rine trip up toward Yonkers, remain­
ing under water over seven minutes.
j I’he trials were a success, and tho
'entlemen interested in the boat well
I ¡leased. Prof. Tuck said she had made
j t velve miles an hour, and that she
| onld remain under water several hours.

ALUMINUM.
LAFAYETTE’S
ESCAPE,
rhe Metal Destined to Revolutionise the
IndiiKtrial Arts.
How the Great Soldier and Philanthropist
Ran Away to Sea.
“The metal of the future,” said a
prominent mechanical engineer to me,
“is aluminum, In a few years it will
displace iron aud steel, and simply
revolutionize industrial arts every-
where. The millennium will be the
age of aluminum. 1» ” “But,” said I,
“iron is the commonest of all metals,
and aluniiniini is comparatively rare.
Is there enough aluminum in the world
to take the place of iron?” “Yes,”
sirid he, "and your former assumption
is an error. Aluminum is the most
plentiful of all metals. The world con­
tains ten times as much of it as of iron.
It is everywhere. Every clay-bed is an
aluminum mine.” “What is the rea­
son,” I asked, “that it has not already
come into general use?” "The great
cost of producing it,” lie replied. “The
metal called sodium is used in the pro­
duction of aluminum, and it is very
expensive. Numberless methods have
been tried, and hundreds of chemists
all over the world are devoting their
lives to the task of finding a cheap way
of producing aluminum. The man who
succeeds will be more fortunate than
though he had found the philosopher's
stone. Whoever can produce aluminum
at one dollar a pound will make a for­
tune, while a man who can make it for
twenty-five cents a pound can buy out
the Rothschilds in a day.” “What is
the cost of aluminum now?” “The
raw materials for making it are not
worth twenty dollars a ton—that is,
twenty dollars for enough to produce a
ton of the metal; but a ton of alumi­
num, perfectly manufactured, is worth
twenty thousand dollars.”
“What are the valuable properties of
aluminum?” I asked, “and to what use
can it be applied?” “It can take the
place of almost every other metal in
the world,” said he, “and very largely
that of wood also. In the first place it
is very strong. Its tensile strength
is more than three tons to the square
inch greater than that of *he best
Bessemer steel. In fact, it ¡ b by far
the strongest metal known. A cannon
made of it would be three times as strong
as one made of steel or gun metal.
It is very stiff or rigid too; three
times as rigid as the best of bronze.
Another important thing is that it will
not tarnish. Neither air, nor water, nor
salt, nor acids, nor corrosive gases
have the slightest effect upon it.
Neither does intense heat change its
color. It is the best conductor of beat
known in the world; also of electricity.
It would make the best telegraph wires
in the world, having twice tlie conduct­
ing power of copper with only a third
of its weight, and lasting practically
forever. It is very ductile and can be
drawn* into wire more easily than al­
most any other metal. Moreover, it is
easily worked cold or hot. It is suita­
ble for anything that iron or steel or
copper or brass or bronze or gold or
silver is used for, from the wheels of a
watch to a monster steam engine.”
“How does it compare in weight with
other metals?” “It is by far tnc light­
est; lighter, indeed, than many hard
woods. It is little more than one-third
the weight of cast-iron. To bo exact, a
cubic foot of aluminum weighs only 166
pounds. The same sized block of cast-
iron weighs about 451 pounds; of
wrought-iron, 487 pounds; of copper,
554| pounds; of lead, 709 pounds; of
brass, 528 pounds; and of gold, about
1,200 pounds. In brief, it is the light­
est, easiest worked, strongest, most
durable, and generally the most valu­
able of all metals, and the mau who in­
vents and patents a method of making
it cheaply will revolutionize industry,
and become the richest man in the
world.”— Trenton Cor. Pittsburgh Dis­
patch.
One hundred and nine years ago, in
the month of February, 1777, a young
French guardsman ran away to sea.
And a most singular running away It
was. He did not wish to be a sailor,
but he was so anxious to go that he
bought a ship to run away in—for ha
was a very wealthy young man; and
though he was only nineteen, he held a
commission as Major-General in the
armies of a land three thousand miles
away—a land lie had never seen and the
language of which he could not speak.
The King of France commanded him to
remain at home; his friends and rela­
tives tried to restrain him; and even the
representatives, or agents, of the coun­
try in defense of which he desired to
tight would not encourage his pur­
pose. And when tlie young man, while
dining at tho house of the British Am­
bassador to France, openly avowed his
sympathy with a downtrodden people,
and his u termination to help them gain
their freedom, the Ambassador acted
quickly. At his request the rash voung
enthusiast was arrested by the Erencn
Government, and orders were given to
seize his ship, which was awaiting him
at Bordeaux. But ship and owner both
slipped away, and, sailing from the
port of Pasajes in Spa n, tho runaway,
with elevon chosen companions, was
soon on the sea, bound for America,
and beyond the reach of b.»th friends aud
foes.
On April 25, 1777, he landed at the

TRIANGULAR MIRRORS.
A Charming Device for Ladles Who Are
Anxious to See Their Back Hair.
“Women, as everybody knows, are
the hardest people in the world to
please,” said a wan, pale-faced clerk
in a large jewelry establishment the
other day, just after wrestling for an
hour and a half with a fat girl rn a
red hood, who had bought only a silver
bangle bracelet for a dollar. The pale-
faced clerk sighed and then continued
in a dull and listless sort of a way:
"But I think we’ve got something
now that even the prettiest and mean­
est female in the world can’t oomplain
about. You know (or mebbe you
don't know, you don't look as though
you were married—say. I’ve been mar­
ried two years), every woman would
rather see the back of her head just
after she haB put up her hair than any­
thing else on earth. Well, they’ve
been straining their necks and using
hand glasses in front of their mirrors
for a king time, and the result has not
been particularly satisfactory. It has
at length occurred to somebody to in­
vent something to remedy this. There
is a three-sided glass. It's rather ex­
pensive, you see. French plate glass,
with ivory backs. The sides are
movable and adjustable. A woman
can arrange that thing go that she can
sit in front of it and see her back hair
without turning her head. The ad­
vantage is simply beyond calculation.
She can catch her dressing maid in
a lie regularly every morning.”— Phila­

FRENCH
CHEMISETTES.
Several Pre ty and Very Comfortable
Styles in Cambric and Linen.
There are several styles of chemi­
settes; those of fine cambric are pop­
ular with young ladies. The linen
I chemisettes are preferred by some; this
style shows both the medium wide and
the very narrow plaits. The chemi­
settes made wholly of lace are exceed­
ingly prettv; this style is not becoming
to every one; to produce a good effect
the form should lie as near perfection aa
possible; the neck, white and plump,
shoulders tapering, and the bust full. A
very handsome chemisette can be made
of lace edging, milled and la d in rows
on net lace. The band encircling th«
neck is made of lac e insertion or rib­
bon overlaid witli soft mesh, or
illu.s:on lace.
Nainsook, tucked,
forms very pretty chemisettes. The em­
broidered style of chemisette is becom­
ing. and as this material is inclined to
be bulky, it gives roundness to slender
figures, which is very desirable, espe­
cially in wearing this fashion of gar­
ment. Tlie collars nre worn either nar­
row or wide; when tlie neck is of the
•'swan”-like shape a wido collar is more
becoming. In this there are not many
varieties; rhe narrow silk band, with
liny bow, is a mode popularwith young
ladies. Another pretty style of tie is a
piece of ribbon about an inch wide, car­
ried around tlie neck and tied in a
double bow-knot directly in front or
beneath flic left ear; tho latter situation
is more fenrnine than the former and
lienee not quite
popular at present,
while short hair, round hats, white
vests, coat sleeves and collar studs are
such favorites with young ladies.— N.

The Earliest Bank.
The te rm bank is derived from the
Ital an banco, a seat or bench, because
tlie earlier custodbins and dealers in
money in Italy were accustomed to sit
on benches in the market places of tlie
principal towns. The earliest public
bank established in modern Europe was
that of Venice, which was founded in
| 1157. About the year 1350 tho cloth
merchants of Barcelona, then a wealthy
body, ad led the business of banking to
their other commerc al pursuits; being
authorized so to do by an ordinance of
the King of Arregon, which contained
the important stipulation that they
should l>e restricted from acting ns
bankers until they should havo given
suilicient security for the liquidation of
thor engagements. In 1401, a bank
was o|>ened by the functionaries of the
city, the first of the kind ever established
in Europe. -Jewish Messenger.

Astronomical Intelligence.
Joseph Prudhomme is looking over •
work on astronomy, and comes across
an engraving, showing the principal
mountains in the moon, with their
names. Very much surprised, he re­
marks to his offspring:
“Oncsimtis, my son; behold what
science can do! Not only have they dis­
covered the mountains in the moon, but
they've found out their names as wall]”
