very senilIe view of the relation of th.
recent republican victory to the iuterest
of the colored population of the country
"I do not see," he says, "that it make
much diffeieuce to us who is president.
provided the incumbent is an honest
Od-fearing man, anil administers tin
laws faithfully and impartially." That
is to say. he believes that the eolorei
people have tluir salvation in their owi
hauds, and can not expect to derive an
special benefit as a race from the res'.ora
tiou of the republican party to power
leyond that of securing a fair chauci
with all other classes of ci izens. The
can not hope to have mirachs wrough
for their particular advantage. The re
publican party is under no obligation t
make life any easier for them than it i
for the majority of white people. The;

"It's just that, Aunt Hannah," said
Jim Devitt, throwing back his brown
velveteen coat, 6tretching his gay plaid
trousers, and Bimpping his fingers at a
fat whito bull dog with the solemn com

alls it that; she's the derndest."
.Some two weeks back, Biuiser, on an
sploring expedition, met in a narrow
ath on tho manor grounds a fat New
oundland dog and a tall, overgrown girl,
.ith a curiously chJldish face and bright
"Sick him, Nep, he's such a little
no," said the girl. Nop turned tail and
ttempted to llee. Not so Bruiser; liL

lump, and i'.ew upon tho lag dog, who
lood still and howled frightfully, while
ho girl, with real courage, seized
Jruiser by tho loose skin on Ids neck,

"Don't you know no better than to
ick a bull dog on an old sheep like

'og's business; look at tkeui scars on

1st of Bruiser's battles, lost and won.
The girl listened with respectful at ten

Well, tluol l sardine, tho fellow in

Jevitt, hopefuily, taking Enid's side ct
"Vou are very kind," sighed Enid; and
i!io nuttier was dropped, all parties ?n-
cr.voring to see tins one redeeming trait
in the man in oiL
Dovitt was a very simple minded young
oiin. llo had read few books, chiefly of
. ilrondiro thn Iririrl Tnriinn nnd nirnti
ales xx:iiliar to tho young, and bad
waa a messenger boy, on hi3 way to do
errandu; but now his literary tasto ran
to cporting journals, and ioerry was an
unknown field to him. He liked Hetty,
sympathized with her sorrows, offered to

At Enid he looked with awe and
wonder, sho could quote so much ioetry,
had read so many novels, and was so
strangely innocent and unworldly, and
made him out such a hero. In fact she
was such a good listener that he stretchexl
the truth now and then to interest her.
"You are like 1'omco and Juliet,"
sighed Hetty. "Enid is about her ago,
anil her eyes are good, if sho is so thin,
and does outgrow her clothes so."
These meetings continued all that sum
mer. Hetty always n willing third party,
and deep in a novel about it. She meant
to make it a great success, and have her
jiortrait in the book, with Ler hair all
wavy, and a poetic look on her fac-i and
have the newspapers just teem with anec
dotes of her beauty and brilliancy. They
called tlie old stone house the castle, and
under the castle windows came Mr.
Devitt every night when tho weather was
fine. He had a lovely tenor voice, and
Mrs. Suydarn was deaf, and ho knew the
whole of "Maid of Alliens," which he
sangdivinely. "Aud of course that's 3-011,"
Hetty would say as they leaned out the
window and listened:

Kiss thy soft cheeks' blooming tinge;
By fhose wild eyes like tho roe.
"You have those soulful, yearning eyes,
and that's all tho good looks vou have
got," Hetty would add truthfully.
Once in a while Bruiser would add to
the melody by a howl when a cut escaped

would appeal to the neighboring cats for

Most likely the household nUairs of a
Pomjieian lady were confined to the su
perintendence of he-r women in tho spin
ning room, or of the attendants of tho
children of tho house. Some lady land
owners may have had to transact busi
ness with their stewards, but beyond
this they had plenty of time for visiting
tho baths and theatres, or worshiping in
ihe temples. The old state religion liad,
at that time, lost its hold on tho public
mind, but the worship of tho Egyptian
gods liad much attraction for tho women,
and tho time spent at the Temple of Isis
was so exaggerated by them that resort
to the latter was once forbidden by edict.
The Roman baths, with all their details,
have been so often described that we will
not touch on them at length. Suffice it
to say that our Pom peian lady had am-
fIo epportunity of enjoying their ele
ights and gossiping the hours away at
tho splendid establishments in Pompeii,
which often served as a placo of appoint
ment lo meet friends or lovers, where
intrigues could bo carried on or the toj
ics or the day be freely discussed. Borne
thither in her litter, or proceeding on
foot, accompauied by her slaves, our
Pom peian lady spent hours in tho wo
men's part of the establishment, whence
the could either depart by a side door as
privately as she came, or mix in the
crowd in the courts. Woman's World.
