SUSY KEMP'S ROMANCE.
T C. I. T.
At the time our story opens, Susy
Kemp was a plump little widow of
about thirty five. As a girl she had
been very beautiful in (ace and figure,
very artless and romantic in her dis
position, and so was very easily
aptivated by a penniless adven
turer and persuaded into a clan
destine marriage. The marriage
it is needless to say proved a very
unhappy one, but Susy fuithful
to her marriage vows, struggled
bravely to make the best of things,
trying to train up her children
aright aud reform a drunken husband.
A hopeless task she found the latter
as many another has before her.
Beauty faded, health failed still
she struggled on till death came to ho
release, taking her unworthy hus
band in a lit of drunkeness.
The husband was scarcely buried
when her two children, a bright man
ly boy of ten and a lovely girl of
eight, sickened and died with that
dread disease, Diphtheria.
Susy stunned and bewildered was
stricken with Drain Fever, and lay
for many days unconscious, cared for
by kind friends. By the Providence
of God her life was spared and lay
came slowly back to hoaltb and
Life looked very dreary to poor"
Susy, as she faced it after having re
gained enough strength to think of
the future. Plans were soon formed
however; renting a single room taking
the little furniture needed to furnish it,
the rest was sold and applied to some
of the numerous debts of which she
found herself the possessor, fordur'
Ingthe sickness of herself and children
bills had accumulated till she found
herself owing not only the doctor
und undertaker, but the butcher the
baker and the candle-stick maker, as
well.- Securing a position in a print
ing office as type setter, she sec out
bravely to earn her daily bread and
fay her debts; feeling as she cheerful
y said, that even that was better
than to be without any object in IMe.
By steady work and much sell-denial
Susy found that she could Biipport
herself comfortably and lay by a small
sum every month, which was careful
ly andcouscienciously divided among
the many creditors, while much
to her satisfaction she soon found
the many to be growing few.
The doctor's bill was the largest
and Susy found herself looking for
ward with much pleasure to her peri
odical visits to "my doctor," a she
called him to herself.
Dr. Warner, the physician who had
attended SuBy and her children in
their sickness, was a single man ol
about forty, very silent and reserved,
very kind and courteous; a man
whom every one liked as a physician
yet whom few called friend.
A comparative stranger in the
place, yet so singularly successful in
Lis practice that he was as one
might say, upon the topmost wave
of popularity and success.
He had been much interested in Mrs.
Kemp's case, a few words let fall
by a neighbor awakening his inter
est at first, and as he watched her
daily life as she came back to health,
saw how patient and cheerful she was,
how (juiet and unassuming, yet how
firm in her determination to be inde
pendent of charity, he was filled with
admiration and respect.
One memorable evening as Susy
called at his office she said, us she
handed him a roll of money, "Dr.
Warner, I think I am the happiest
woman in this city to-night. 1 have
accomplished the object which I set
before me, and now so far as I know
I owe no one a cent."
He smiled as he filled a receipt for
the money, and said, "It is a grand
thing to have carried out one's
plans and to have made no
failure, I heartily eoneratulateyou,"
"but"headd3d, "do 'you not find
your pleasure in different Channels
than most people; that is usually
considered oi so small moment, that
it scarcely enters into the account of
things to be thankful for, at least it
appears so to me.
"Well." said Susy' "it certainly is
a great thing to me and I am going to
celebrate the event by taking a week's
holiday. After a little more desul
tory conversation Susy left, and the
usually busy doctor sat for an hour
thinking of Susy, her words her life
una her changed appearance, for in
regaining health, she had also regain
ed much of her former beauty; even
youth seemed to have returned when
all cause for care and anxiety were
gone and no one would have taken
her to be over twenty-five.
It was evident that some thought
stirred the doctor to an unusual de
gree for at length he rose and paced
. the room with a very determined look
upon his countenance. At lenght he
said, as though speaking to some un
seen remonstrant, "Yes I love her as
T never thought to love any woman.
and she shall be my wife if I can win
her, she shall be spared all toil and
care, I will make up to her what she has
suffered and lost in the past, my brave
After this Susv and the doctor met
much more frequently for Susy being
released from the necessity of such
close confining work, went more fre
quently into society whensheinvaria
bly met the doctor; she also met him
quite often at the bedside of the sick,
and so the friendship grew and
strengthened, but no hint did Susy
receive of the determination he had
arrived at as he sat in his office
It happened one evening at a
social gathering, where truth to tell.
Dr. Warner had gone with the sole
purpose in view of seeing Susy, that
a young man making a very flippant
and irrevernnt remark an thesubject
ofreligion, was sharply reproved by
an elderly gentleman present, when
almost unconsciously the conversa
tion drifted into en argument pro
and con, as to the Providence of God.
Dr. Warner stood by, making no
comment and listening intently,
when suddenly turning, the elderly
gentleman alluded to, asked his opin
ion. "IdonotlHlieve,"said ho in his
slow quiet way, "that there is any
such thins as Providence or that
there is any God in the sense that
you gentlemen have intimated.
What you are pleased to call Provi
dence is merely chance and the rest is
superstition." Sudden silence fell
on the group at this bold
avowal, when the young man
who was the cause of the conver
sation, and who was notoriously
"hint" said, "Uh come now doctor
that's too bad of you, I'm not such a
heathen as that my self, for I'm sure I
beliove'.thero is a God, though I don't
knonfinuch about ins rroviuenee.
Glancimr up at this instant Dr
Warner caught Susy Kemp's gaze
fastened upon him in consternation
and amnzement; looking him square
ly in the eye she said, "The fool
hath snid in his heart there is no
God," "and you Mr. Brown" turning
suddenly to that young man "Dost
thou believe in uod. the devils also
believe and tremble," then turningto
the group by whom she was sur
rounded resumed the interrupted
As for Dr. Warner if a bomb Bhell
had exploded at his feot, he could
have been no more astonished or
confounded, and although no more

Poor Susiol alone in her room that
evening she asked herself some very
searching questions and made some
very humiliating discoveries, a mong
which t bene stood out boldly, that
she had given her heart unsought to
Dr. Waruer, and that he was an in
fidel! Drojjltijj, nt length, Upon her
knees, in the bitterness of her soul
she prayed for herself that she might
have strength given her for this
trial, and for the doctor, that he
might see the error of his way; after
which she quietly retired and was
soon lost in peaceful slumber.
Time passed on, Susy quietly
avoided the doctor as much as pos
sible but when tliiscould notbe uone
she was, seemingly, just the same
quiet friend as ever, and yet the doc
tor acknowledged to himself there
was some subtle change, an invisible
barrier which he could not pass.
Meanwhile the doctor was under
going a wonderful change which
seemed transforming in its' effects.
He was now to be found regularly
in his pew at church; he was more in
terested in all that pertained to the
welfare of the church, the people and
the city. Instead of being the silent
reserved man who could number all
his friends upon the fingers of one
hand, he wussokindnndsympathet
icso genial and cordial, thutitwould
have been" hard indeed to have found
one, oll or young, who did not
count themselves Dr. Warner's friend.
Susy watched these changes with
wonder at first and then with inward
joy, treasuring in her heart all tho
praises bestqwed upon him and re
joicing secretly over every evidence
of change going on;and when one love
ly Sabbath in early Summer the doc
tor was received into the church after
publicly professing his belief in God
nud all the ordinances, it Jseenied to
her the happiest day ol her life, and her
heart was filled to overflowing with
thankfulness to thegiver of all good.
Not many days after Susy was
surprised to see Dr. Warner's carriage
stop before her door; as she ap-

answered, "certainly Dr. Warner I

where Dr. Warner's services were re
quired; leaving Susy in tho carriage
he entered the house where he soon
dispatched his business, and as he
returned he said, "We will go back

Thus dismissing thecasefrom mind
they turned homeward, but for some
reason the gay spirits and merry
conversation which they had indulg
ed in on the outward trip seemed to
have deserted them and each was si
lent and pre-ocupied. As they near

said, " V hat a beautiful place this is,

earnest manner that she dropped

Those Terrible Wires.
It is a certain thing that all elec
tric wires will have to go nnder
ground, and tho quicker- the work is
performed the better for the people
of St. Louis. It is a dangerous piece
of business to pick up the ear trun
pet of a telephone carelessly, for a fin
ger may come in contact with tho
brass end, which would be followed
by the death of thecareless individu
al if tho phone wires were crossed by
any of tho electric wires, Take a
small compass and watch how easily
it can bo upset by simply bringing
the ear trumpet of this phone within
a foot of it. Thh ought not to be
the case, and it plainly shows that
the wires are highly charged with
electricity, which accounts for the
loud buzzing sound hoard when a
person endeavors to use the tele
ithone. If an exnosed electric wire
should come in contact with, a piece
ot metal on a roof, the result would
be a couflagration which could not
be put out, as it is useless to throw
water on an electric wire with the idea
ot stopping the flames which ensue, as
water would make a non-conductor
a conductor, and the fire would
rapidly spread. The damage to tho
various buildings, telephones and
switch-boards inflicted during the
past week was only the work of the
wires of half of tho companies whic h
have contracts to illuminate the
city, and what the result will be
when all the lights are ready to be
lit nobody can foreshadow. Inter

Preparing for Autumn.
Forewarned is foreamred. Hence it
is well to take a peep into the future
when circumstances permit. Although
summer is barely at its height, design
ers are busy on winter wrappings, but
they rarely let their secrets leak out
before August. However, it seems
settled that jacket corsages of the
dress material will prevail largely
throughout the autumn. This com
bination jacket and corsage will have
open jacket fronts, open only at the
throat, or else all the way down on a
contrasting blouse of silk or a woolen
vest. The Medici collar will continue
to be used, frequently with the addi
tion of a knotted cravat of the blouse
material. The Breton jacket will be
seen again in the fall. This is almost
as short as a Figaro jacket, is worn
with a rather long, closefitting, square
cornered vest, and is ornamented with
embroidery and braiding. Among
these the real Breton vest will be
seen, white cloth delicately embroider
ed in fine silks of red, yellow, and
black the local Breton colors. Simi

The dresses preparing for early au
tumn are of an informal variety,
capable of being worn at all hours,
for shopping, for calling, and for last
excursions m the country. A pretty
example is a dress of striped green and
cream wool. The front breadth of the
skirt is shorter than the side breadths,
scalloped at the lower edge, and edged
with green velvet; underneath the
scallops is a narrow pleated ruffle of
the dress material; this front is slight
ly draped on the hips, forming scarcely
perceptible pahiers; the back breadths
are thickly gathered and fall straight.

The most elegant muslins seen in
midsummer are the silk mousselines
of afternoon gowns worn at country-
house parties. Chintz patterns are
the novelty in these transparent silks,
in small all-over designs showing sev
eral colors, as one of dull rose, leaf
green, and brown together on a white
ground made up over pink silk, and
trimmed with white ribbons. Another
mousseline has pale mauve, green,
and yellow in its combination, with a
foundation of pink silk gleaming
through the white ground. Ureamy
white lace also takes part in the trim
ming, as the tendency now is to use
white in lieu of the black note that has
lately distinguished many dresses.
These light gowns have a seamless
bodice crossed in folds in front and
back, and a lace frill follows the lap
ped edges, giving a finish to the point
ed neck, and extending to the belt.
The sleeves tall softly from the arm
hole in curves on the outer arm, and
have a frill of lace drooping low on the
hand. A suggestion of panier fullness
is given the straight skirt by catching
it up on each hip with a large chou of
white gauze ribbon, and similar ro
settes hold the front in'diagonal folds.
At the foot is a cluster of tucks and a
broad hem. Wide sash loops and
ends of the mousseline bound with
white ribbon fall at the back from be
neath three choux, that are set close
ly together and conceal the fastening
of the belt of folded ribbon. V. ith
this quaintly simple dress is worn a
large white hat of lace or of open
straw with feather trimming; the par

How To Tie a Shoe,
The low, summer shoe once more
graces the pretty foot of the summer
girl, and the sound of the trailing
shoestring is again heard in the land.
When I walk down Fifth avenue in
the wake of a young woman in trim
tailor made gown or dainty combina
tion of lace and muslin I hear the
swish of strings and the tinkle of lines
on the pavement rising and falling
with each movement of her slim,
As she glances uneasily and furtive
ly about her and, when she is quite
sure no one is looking, quickly stoops
and readjusts the offending tie, my
manly heart is stirred with a desire
to show her how she may make that
tie more lasting than those of friend
ship, or even matrimony.
It was a very pretty lady who in
itiated me into the secret of this tie,
warranted to hold. Shall I ever for
get that she tied my shoe one - day on
the ocean sands to make the process
more clear? I think I may ay that
b,ad I received a thousand Tolts of
electricity the shock would have been
mild to that I experienced. She has
since given me the right to tie her shoe
for all time, and I have had the prac
tice that makes perfect.
The simple mystery is this: Proceed
exactly as if you were about to
tie an ordinary bow knot, but before
you draw it up pass the right bind
loop through the knot; give steady
and simultaneous pull on both loops,
and you may tread the sands of time
or the ocean beach all day and waltz
into the wee sma' hours of the next
and that shoestring will never trip
you up. In untying be sure to pull
the right hand line and the string will
readily unloosen, but if you pull the
other you will find it as hard to un
fasten as some hastily tied matrimon
A Famous European Beauty.
Who is the most beautiful woman
of Europe? It would be difficult if not
wholly impossible to answer that
question under any circumstances, but
cable reports and letters from Euro
pean correspondents daily add to the
difficulty. One asserts that the wife
of Prince Sergius of Russia is entitled
to the honor; another claims it for a
daughter of the reigning house of Den
mark, and a handsome woman this
last is, too, and she comes from a
family of beauties in their day; but
still another correspondent nominates
a member of English royalty, while
another favors a German lady, an
other an Austrian and so on to tne
end of the chapter.
One of the latest claimants is the
Comtesse Aymerydo a Rochefoucauld,
a Parisian belle, who has attained dis
tinction heretofore as being a living
reproduction of Marie Antoinette, but
it is only within the last week or two,
that her admirers have laid claim to
the still higher honor of being the
beauty par excellence. If her pictures
are truthful she is certainly a hand
some woman, but whether everybody
wiii unite in granting her this honor is
another master; there is such a differ
ence of opinion as to what constitutes
beauty. Commercial Gazette.
Water As a Disinfectant,
It is a fact that appears to be not
generally known, perhaps because it
may not be generally credited, that
pure, fresh cold water is one of tho
most valuable of disinfectants, inas
much as it is a powerful absorbent.
Every sick-room should have a large
Vessel of clear water, frequently re
newed, placed not far from the bed,
or even beneath it. This not only
absorbs much of the hurtful vapor,
but by its evaporation it softens and
tempers the atmosphere, doing away
with the' dryness which is so trying
and depressing fo an invalid or even
to well persons, for that matter. It
has frequently becfi shown, by actual
experiment, that trOftbled sleep and
threatened insomnia are corrected by
so simple a thing as the placing ot an
open bowl of water near the suffer
er's couch. Of course, it hardly Keed
be said, after these matters have beew
considered for a moment, that water
which has stood for any length of
time in a close room is not proper for
drinking purposes. Good House
keeping. How to Wear Gray.
Every woman wears gray because it
is fashionable, and so it behooves the
woman who is a sallow blonde to
know that her gray dress ought to
have a rich cardnal or crimson plas
tron or a big soft fichu of red chiffon.
The reddish blonde need not read
thia article. She can wear gray pure
and simple without modification.
The brunette should take heed that
her gray dress has a touch ot pink or
old rose near her face, or, if it becomes
her better, of yellow.
No girl who is dark should ever put
blue with gray.
No girl who has not a rose-leaf skin
should wear cream and gray.
Never wear a gray hat unless you
face it with the tint that is most be
coming. If you heed these hints you
will probably confess them wise.
