Pew families could be in more denporat
traiU aa to money mattern than tho Dillowayi
were, ami i:i few could tUo factn have boen
taken with nmro divorhitvof oiiinion. Tlior
wan Mamma Lulloway, a HUtcly, jray-haired
matron, who ft It no wronirod Y circuiimtanco
an to Lo on tho edo of a quarrel with tho uui
versa Thorc wan Margaret, tho beauty, who
wan in too mim rablo health to caro about the
money luattiT. and pftsod tho day 0:1 the sofa
in languor and imlisrorom-o. l h(;ro w an Kato,
whono Mituiition as a tcachor was tho muiustay
of tho house. T'h'jre wt-ro tho younger ones,
Ethel and I r'sl nrid Harry, on whom tho world
wanjiifit liegiuiiing i j cant a ehad w, 11 Loho
apj ttiton and wlio led k"cw with every day
beyond the round of provisions and trous. rd.
And there w;m Liooka, tho proud and i-ufTcr-inj;
el. lift h j:i, whono heiniiingn had all coino
to naught v. ! curbed poverty an it had
rnrned liim; and there wan Maria, tlio other
daughter, who was not a br-auty, but who,
nevortlioless, h.td tliat ijuulity of ahHorbiiiK and
reMeftiiiK HMii-hino which brini-s ntin.-ihiuo into
ohadow, and who rather roli.-":!ud tho tiid.slo
witli their wants, and alwaya c.xjioctt-d victory.
It Koeni'fd to Mamma Liilnwuy, on tho morn
ing that Itro'ihn whs Hiiinmonod t Colorado to
tako the ln.-.l.H of hh old fri' 11 1 who hsd falloa
ill, that now tJr worst hud com", and eho sliould
never n e le-r mo:i aain.
On the i- ii:. :iry, mamiii.i,7' eaid Maii:i, who

li;ious joy ; for if evi.T a-.yhudy was t!:a.i!;ful "
"Miiria!" ox.clai:i:ed ht-r niotlier.
"You know, maiiiiu:i, you're an p!nd u I "
"I don't know any Hi-.ch Mh.irt-i.lited tiling,"
i-nid Mrs. Lilloway. ' C'oloi-ado in a lon way
oiT. and liiiiiin; lii'o is very rouh, an-1 ininea
a; o very unon iain ; and if Brooks f '.!n iii whilo

And before Mm. Iiilluway fairly knew what
had happcne 1, Brooks 2nd Alal ia woro 0:1 their
westward way, having left tho whole family
aghast at the vi-i on of loimliui!sn, oppressed
with anxiety, and vvrctchod with somothiui;
like fjriof. They could scarcely have told you
how they dragged 0:1 an e':irienco through tho
lirst dreary wc.'ks. Tho weather fittud with
their feelings, and nothing broke tho monot
ony of thoir trouble.
"You'll havo to come hack, Maria," wro!o
Ka!o. "Tho houso ia getting so damp with
mamma' a team that tho walls will mildew pre
sently. Margaret, too, turns her face to tho
back of the sofa, and tho toara roll down, one
by one, for dreariness. Tho gloom ha.n
even infected Ethel, whoso dolls aro al
ways poiiif; to funerals. There seomn
to be nothing to da, nothing to ex
pect, nowhere to go. ' My quarter hasn't yet
been paid, and we have Hhoi t commons, I can
tell you. The table emphasizes our low spirits
three times a day ; but mamma will have it set,
if thoro in only potatoes and milk. You wore
all the life and comfort wo had, and now you
are gone. But yon have had your outing now;
and unions you want mo to go to an insane
asylum, you will have to como homo, and leave
Urooks to his fate."
The answer to this letter wan a fortnight's
later date. -Coms homo, indeed," said Maria.
"when I'm having the first good time in my
life! Such a new and strange life too! Such
an atmosphere, and such scenery a world of
pictures. I supposo yDU think of us in a des
ert; but can you muster a dozen superb young
Sanls, Englishmen and others, every morning
with fialloping across country, every evening
with music and dancing? You know so many
English of tho first water come over to hunt
the buffalo, an 1 some to ta!:e up land for
ranches. Thcro is a Mr. Cholmondeley, and
C"2pL Arundel and bin sister, and Mr. and
Mrs. Cecil, and I don't kuow how many others,
lirst and last a new ono always turning up.
Soyouseathe time passes finite diiferontlv
from time at home, witere you so seldom see a
marrying man, that when you do, you think
he belongs to another species. Oh, and I mn.-t
not forget the Colonel! Now, what do yon
think of n real British nobleman, of a faintly
titled since the Conqueror or is it the lloodi
Col. Sir Guy Temple! Perfectly charming,
nnd riuh beyond calculation tin mines in
Cornwall. I think wo shall name the mine fyr
Lim. iJy the way, didn't Brooks write yoc
that he has a little mine himself? He has
given mo half of it"
And so the letter ran on, a:. great cheer it
brought Into that dull place whore it was read
tThe Colonel," srid Mrs. Dilloway retlective
ly, an Maria knew she would. 'Colonel Sil
Guy Temple. Those old titles think more o
themselves than half the ducal houses in tin
realm, yon know. I didn't twppose any onf
but the Prince of Wales owned tin mines in
Cornwall, though. I wonder if Maria'
dl es '09
Nili, they don't need dressoa, mamma, ic
-Not need dre-t-e3. Mug.iret!" cried Mrs.
I:lk-v. y holding tip her hands.
-1 7ne.u1, mamma, her ridmu dres, that rhe
made fiom the water proof, you remember, is
ti-i g'Hid there as a velvet omt-trair. v. jnld be

-J'.-.m- Maria in't really j.'. l tty," rfoliioquized
Mrs. lii'lo-.N.-.y; ' I nt that's the "way thii:,js go.
What a pity, "Margaret, that you could nt ha.-t
g(in out with Brooks !"
uOh, Maria's brightness is just as good for
her as beauty,'' .said KatJ.
'd!' she only could be comfortably estah
l'flie.l! Thar "would help all the rest, too. It's
too good to hope for, though, in this family."
'Well, perhaps sho will be. She certainly
has a ohance." '
And somehow the gray weather was
not quite ho gray to Mrs. Iilloway

It deesa't strike her ho, though, at all. You
will nc- that she treats it in rather a frivolous
way. But that is until :al to youth and joy, I
suppose. And, in spito of her little speech.
Mamma I'iiloway's face was wreathed with
smiles as hhe read:
'Well, to come to some thing really
important. You rcmomber, of course, all I
have written yon from time to time about
Colonel Sir Guy Temple, who his
served in India, and has the
Victoria Cross, and all that? Well,
he is going home to England. Perhaps
he is tir d of buffalo-hunting, perhaps ho has
brought down better game. At any rate, ho
will take his wife with him. Mamma, I never

you soon. ' "
Mrs. Billoway went about treading on air.
What matter that tho roof leaked, and rain rau
down tho walls? It was merely a frescoing
there. What matter that the milkman dunned
a second time, and said lie should not ask a
'.bird? She hoped lie wouldn't. What had
seemed unendurable throe mouths ago, ho
could laugh at now; three months more, six
mouths morn, and there would come un end
to all these bitter experiences. 'J ho fact of
Miria' being well m a-ried would marry off
all the other girls; and even wen; her husband
parsimonious, what Maria could spare from
her pin-nionov would r ut them beyond want
any more. The snn had como out, the land

Mrs. Billoway retrimmod hor bonnet and went
to church with her good spirits, feeling in a
thankful mood. It was pleasant to see tho
neighbors smiling at ono, and bowing to an
other; it puts the neighbors in mind of her,
too; and tliev came to see her that week, and
tne next, and made it more cheerful than it
had been for months. She hinted mysterious
ly at Maria's good fortune, but was not sure
that she oup:ht to commit herself, flood friends,
good fortune, and good feeling all gave her a
sensation resembling tho happiness she used
to know; she radiated it on Margaret and the
re-t till you would never havo dreamed it was
the tear-sodden family of which Maria and
Brooks took leavo in the gray of the morning a
dozen weeks ago.
"I have been darklv hinting at good fortune,

"I'm .sure I don t know what she means by
darkly hinting," " said her mother. "It was nil

incoherent," half Sighed Mrs. Biiluwuy, yet
with the feeling that a Lady Tmpia could af
ford to be frivolous and incoherent Lady

Elizabethan m-msioti was oncir. le.l with How

out in tho haunted diamonds, saw her portrait

Sho was rubbing tho last plaiting off tho

tractive, with her black hair and blno eyes,
and iu a dress that was all one sparkle of jet

dancing like a windy midnight full of stars.

and chin and mouth and forehead.

John Burns, a stalwart longshoreman, sued
John Q. A. Ward, tho sculptor, for $."0 dam
ages for breach of contract. Burns testified
that Mr. Ward told him ho would give him
four or five months,' work as a model at $15 a
week, but discharged him at tho end of tho
first week, When asked what reason Mr.
Ward gave for discharging him, Burns replied:
"He said th.it my logs wcro all right, hut thai
ho would have to find another body."
Q. Didn't ho tell you you could't pose? A. I
don't know what pose is. I didu't know what
ho wanted iu tho lir.it pi ce.
Q. Didn't Mr. Ward, during the week you
were there, very frequently express dissatis
faction with tho way you would stand? A.
Once in a while he would say, "Burns, Pit
r.p a little;" but a man couldn't stand on one
102 all the while. At tho end of the lirst
week he gave me S'i.oO, saying ho guessed I
won Id want some beer.
Mr. Ward testified that Burns was found
through an agent of his, and wanted as a
model for a statue of Washington. After a
tort examination he thought Burns' legs
would do, and told Burns ho would like to en
gage him neon trial. "Sometimes a model
seems to be good, but tho next test is whether
the proposed m.i '.el can pose, and hold the
Fose properly. When ho commenced his pose
found he could not hold properly. His legs
were tolerably good, but he would not Btand

From the Washington Critic.
Yes this building is haunted," said an at
tache' of the presidential mansion to Tho Critio
thin morning, "and it is said that supernatural
hts are not unfrequenly witnessed in these
large, old-fashioned rooms and airy halls.
Sovoral weeks ago the president changed the
location of his bedchamber by removing from
the east to the north room, and it was vaguely
whispered that his slumbers had been dis
turbed by a nocturnal and weird visitor, the
eamo that one of our chambermaids said she
had seen walking stately r.nd erect through the
up-stairs hallways on several occasions.
Yes, the ghostly visitor is a man," contin
ued the attache, "because I remember well of
hearing the chambermaid say that be had long
flowing white hair and beard, and very much
resembled the statesmen of long ago, whose
pictures we see printed on the pages of history.
At any rate, Bir, I know that the president's
rest is often disturbed at night, because I have
heard him time and again moving about long
after midnight, and sometimes I have listened
to his steady and continued pacing across the
floor when every one else in the house was
slumbering, and wondered what iras disturb

hav? been the agent," suggested The Critic.
"Oh, uo," quickly rejoined the attache,
neither of them, I'm sure. It was the White
House ghost, and I'll bet on it This ghost is
tho same one that made Gen. Grant's nights
hero so scarce and suggested his frequent tnp

white spirit of the White House: "He is an
