A war. away with all teira, my lads ,
Hurray for the boy t. it smiles.
Give me the heart that t all aunshlne ' '

Give me the dear little maid that laughs
WhiJe tears fill her poor, soft heart.
For she is the maid th.t In after year

So away and away with all tears, my lads
Hurrah tor the boy that smiles,
Give me the heart that's all sunshine

No renowned star about to dash in
splendor upon the boards of a theater
in a large metropolis could have been
waited for with more "breathless im
patience than was Edith W ayne by
the congregation assembled in the
. old village church, that bright JSep-
Member morning, Her black cloth
sacque fitted her trim little form to
, a nicety, and the jaunty hat curved
up behind, with the tali ribbon loops
and feather sprays, with tits of jet
dancing on their tips, surmounted a
head of lightish, fluffy browu hair,
v and a fresh face of only twenty ; sum
mers and winters. Pagetown had re
ceived a shock; and few tilings short
of an ; eartl make . could have so
shaken up the little community as
the sudden determination of Squire
Page, for whose ancestor the town
. had been named, to make a change
in the choir of the Congregational
." church.- '..'T -' "'?,.'
Matilda Frescott had been the head
soprano in the church for the past
fifteen years, with a salay of $75 a
year, which Squire Pago paid out of
his own pocket, as ho did all of the
expenses connected with the sing
ing. Something in the nature of an
electric shock passed through her,
therefore, when he called one morn
ing in the summer, a" d, asking to
speak with her alone, tried to explain
. in as few words as possible his rea
sons for wishing to make a change
in the choir arrangements. It was
awkward business and he made an
awkward job of it
"The fact is, Matilda, the world
... moves, you know, and we've all got
to move along with it : This young
lady has a big voice, I can tell you."
"Who is , she?" asked Matilda.
; faintly. - . . '
"She's a Miss Wayne her folks
live somewhere . out West; she's
studying at the conservat iry. Her
teacher says her voie is phenom
enal, and I believe he's right It
goes along up the scale, you know,
without any perceptible break, from
low A to in alt. two octaves and a
half, don't you see?" " -
"Why don't they give her a posi
tion in the city if she can do so much?"
: "Well, they will, by and by, but
she's young yet and hasn't' had ex
perience in church music. I've made
up my mind to engage her for a year,
and I suppos nt the end of that time
they'll want her where they can pay
her more than we can. " He did not
say that hie had promised to give her
400. That was a secret between the
young singer and himself.
. Having delivered his message the
squire left the house as soon as he
. could. His departure was not de
layed, as poor Matilda wad so taken
aback by the news she had heard
that she had no words at hand with
which to make any fitting reply. She
lost no time, however, in going into
the kitchen, where her sister was at
the wash tub giving vigorous rubs to
the week's washing.
Jane Prescott was 20 years the
senior of tho two, and they had long
1 kept house together, in a snug,
thrifty way. Jane was tho manager
and the master spirit, and at 63
years of age retained the vigor of
body an d mind she had possessed at 30.
She had assumed the entire charge
of her sister after the death of their
parents, just thirty-one years ago
this summer; and Matilda seemed to
her now almost as much a child as
lien she used to harness up the old
. white mare, and take her to the little
red brick echoolhouse. two miles
from their home.
1 "Sister," said Matilda, in a voice
broken by convulsive sobs, "I'm
turned out of the-sinying seats."
"WhatP" snapped out Jane, in a
tone that went stinging through the
roonl like a rifle shot
"Yes;' that's what Squire Page
came for just now. V says the folks
want young voices in churches, and
he's got a girl about 2l, who's com
ing In a rnonjh or so.1
Two fierce, red spots appeared on
Jane Prescott's thin ehouk on hear-
lnjj this concise t,n,fmnt, and her
pale, gray eyes looked out with a
menacing glare, as she t ok off her
glasses and stood staring at her
sister." -
"Don't look like that Jane.for good
ness' sake; it isn't wor'h it Of
course I feel badly and shall for some
time; but I suppose it's all right,
after all. You know I am getting
old, comparatively speaking."
"Getting old, Matilda Prcscottl
You're a young woman yet" ",
"No, forty-three can't be called
young. My voice isn't as strong as
it was lwfore the fever. I fairly
tremble when we have a tune with a
high G in it I can't be steady. You
r know my voice never was cultivated,
and they say that makes all the
difference in the ability to menage it.
"Well, ycu can stand there and run
yourself down if you want to, but I
say it's a wicked shame, the whole
thing. That girl won't stay long in
the choir,' let mo toll you, if she
comes I'll fix it.
"Why, Jano, what do you mean?"
"Just let tne alone now, and don't
you say a word to anybody. I've got
to think it all over. 1 shall have
something to say about this thing."
Edith Wayne, as I have said, had
no conception of the fueling against
her. She knew nothing of the choir's
history and regarded tho matter of
her engagement in the light only of
a business transactioa It had been
arranged that she should come to
1'agetown each Saturdayremaining
at tho house of Squire Page until the
Monday following.
She was in splendid voice on this
first Sunday of her appearance in the
choir; her full, round tones had a
charmingly sympathetic quality,
and those evoi who could not say a
word on the subject of music felt
that such a voice had never before
been hrtard inPagetown.
. The foll)wing Wednesday was the
day for ' the monthly meeting of
the sewing circle, which was to meet
on tr.ii ( cc tsion at the house of Dea
con Perkins. There w-s a much
larger attendance than usual, for all
felt that it would be an opportunity
to get together, and talk over the af
fair which was in the mind of every
one in the parish. There was con
siderable cariosity as to whether the
Prescott sisters would be present It
was so-n satisfied Jaue entered
ilono. She took a pieco of work and
seated horself, saying but little to
ny one for awhile. '
When as'el why her sister did not
some, she- replied that she - had gone
way for a few weeks to pay a visit
to a friend. "She has pretty well
lost her interest In the church work,
tnd reason enough, too." t ; .
"Now," said Mrs. Fairchild, plung
ing at once in medias res, "I don't
think Matilla ought to feel just so,
Ja-e. I don't like changes, myself,
in 1 1 thought we were getting along
well enough with the old choir, but
we can't all view things alike, you
know.". .'.i- ...
"If they'd only a good, respectable
girl, I wouldn't have said a word."
"Why, you don't know anything
against Miss Wayne, do you? I
thought she seemed a sweet, indo
lent little thing as ever was, myself."
"Well, if you call a shoplifter an
Innocent little thing, I've no more to
say.". . - , .. ,.-..'', .
"A what!" shuddered Mrs. Falr
ihild, in a stifled, husky whisper, her
very amazement deadening her
Dower to articulate audibly.
"That's what she is," said Jane,
dipping her lips together. "I saw
her in a store in Boston, one day last
spring, as plain as , I see you now.
She was standing right by me, at the
ribbon counter, and she deliberately
took up a roll of pink ribbon and put
it under her, cape. But the floor
walker happened to be close by, and
saw what she had done, and he took
her by the arm and marched her off."
Where to?" ' faltered Mrs. Fair
jhild, in another trie htened whisper.
s"I can't tell you that I never saw
her afterwards, until wi walked into
3hurch last, Sunday, i at I wouldn't
have her' in my house, that's all.",
Can it be as George Ltiot asserts,
with her terrible psychological analy
sis, that "there are moments when
our passions speak and decide for us,
and we seem to stand by and wonder?"
Certain it was that to Jane Pres
cott had come an "inspiration of
crime." She had not premeditated
this, but she had given the demon
within her the heartiest welcome,
and had bidden him crush this young
interloper by any means in his power,
and now she was hurried along to
this definite charge in spite of her
self. She was not cognizant of much
that passed around ber the rest of
that afternoon. . She was one of the
first to leave, and reached her home
lizzy and sick, and in a complete
palsy of terror.
The poisoned arrow did its work.
Before the evening of the next day
the'eharge against Edith Wayne was
known all over the village. Squire
Page himself, enthusiastic as he had
been in favor of the young singer be
gan to feel that perhaps he had been
too hasty in selecting a person of
whom he knew absolutely, nothing.
The girl was charmingly modest in
manner, it was true, and seemed hon
est and sincere but it, was so easy
for impostors to assume such -ways.
He had known Jane Prescott all his
life so had many others of the
townspeople and the one thing that
never once occurred to any of them
was to doubt this woman's wcrd.
Friday had come, the girl must be
notified; it would never do to have
her come again among them. It was
a cloudy day and hearing dusk. Jane
had been informed that the squire
intended going up to town in the
early evening, and for what purpose.
He must pass her house on the way
to the station. Already had Jane
Prescott re turned to her normal con
dition. Already was she repenting
wh at she had done with a bitterness
of misery and remorse sho had never
dreamed could exist in the soul of
Squire Page was hurrying to the
station; for, as usual with him, he
had given himself tarely time to
reach it before the train would arrive-
So he did not see the white
face at the parlor window of Jane
I Prescott's house, and that the front
door stood wide open, and ho did not
' know that a wild-looking figure had
darted out of the door and was call
ing to him, but with a voico that
could not raise itself enough to bo
heard, as we try in a dream to shout
and are controlled by a power, arbi
trary and unaccountable. Her limbs
had not failed her, however, and she
spol on after him, reaching the sta
tion as the train slowed tip. As he
was about to step upon the forward
car she sprang and seized him tight
ly by the arm. He turned to tee the
moving lips, with no sound issuing,
and the fulness of despair in the
withered face, and at once the story
was told.
I Jane Prescott had received a para
lytic shock, which deprived her of
the powfjr of articulate speech but
her written confession satisfied the
little community so fully that the
scandal died out at once, and the
young singer .never felt on her brow
the faintest breath of the whirlwind
that had well nigh swept her away.

German Military Expert' Favorable View

Dr. Von Bruns, professor of interna
tional law at Tubingen university, re
cently published a pamphlet, in which
be pleaded,- In the interests of hu
manity, for an international Inter
action of the "dum-dum" bullet, says
the London Mail. The professor ac
knowledged that the use of the bullet
was justified in the colonial or Indian
wars, where the fight Is generally at
close quarters, and ofen between man
and man, and where it is a question of
European tolally disabling his oppo
nert or being at once struck down
himself. Jn wars between Europeans,
however, where the combatants are
gererally far apart, the professor con
siders that the bullets In question are
not only unnecessarily Inhuman, v but
are less effective than ordinary bul
lets. Surgeon-General Dr. Korting,
mrgeon-ln-chlef of the 1st German ar
ny corps, who has been carefully study
ng the reports of the Italian hospital
corps on its experiences in the late
campaign against Abyssinia, now writes,
lays our Perlin corresponded, m fol
'ows: "The Pallan projectile (eoft kad.
:opper mantle, 6.5 mm. calibre), with
great penetrating power, produced
small inlet and outlet apertures, bone
fractures, and altogether a smooth
wound canal. On the other hand, the
bard lead projectiles of the Abysslni
ans (Gras and Remington, eleven mil
limeters) exploded In the soft parts

them were shot through the breast.
In reality only those, men who had

brought on stretchers. Within three
weeks thousands of Abysslnlans were

English troops did exactly the same
thing and for the same reason during
the Chitral campaign, whereupon a
tremendous storm of Indignation arose,
which penetrated even to the congress
hall of the Berlin surgeons. I am of
n another opinion. The war experi
ences referred to above show rather
that the minimum caliber has been
reached, and that in a number of
cases sufficient to Influence the result
)f the , battle the mantled bullet of
muskets under 8.9 millimetres - does
not suffice to put the enemy 'hors de

A correspondent of the Chronicle,
writing of Bismarck's engagement to
Fraulein von Puttkamer, says: "The
young lady's parents knew Bismarck's
awful reputation as a viveur, and his
nickname of "Mad Biamarjck." They
were very conservative and strait
laced. As such they were strongly
averse to any unldn with the avowed
representative of antagonistic opinions
and forbade their daughter to accept
the advances of her suitor. But they
had to deal with a man who refused
ttf be thwarted in any of his purposes,
and they found that their opposition
was useless and even dangerous. Find
ing himself unwelcome, Bismarck
dopted a plan which, unconventional,
as it was, met with full success. Hav

be received If he called, and knowing
that the Puttkamers were to give a
