A slight pale-faced ffirl sat toying with a piece of needlework on the low porch of ber mother's house; a handsome young man lay stretched t at her feet. On the lawn another young couple were engaged in a game of croquet. The sun's last gleam lighted up Grace Munsou's face with a halo of beauty, and Rernard Nor ton looked at her with unJUguised admiration. There is nothing so lovely as a lovely woman," he said aloud. The pale face of Clarice Barton flushed as she quickly glanced at the speaker. It was the third time within the hour that ho had referred to her cousin Grace's beauty. irace is Indeed lovely." she said. I would give my life to be as beautiful. "And I would give half my fortune to have you so." No sooner were the words uttered than Norton would have given much to recall them; but he had spoken un thinkingly. Clarice shrank as though he had boon str It. arose quickly and went into the house. "I am in a pretty fix dow!" Norton muttered, as he arose and walked across the lawn. "That was a nice peach for a fellow to make to a girl be expects to marry! And Clarice is as proud as Lucifer, too high-strung as she is plain, and that is saying a great deal, by Jove! I nevor noticed her lack of beauty so much before Grace came. A pity one can't find all things combined in a woman! Wonder if I ought to apologize! Oh. well I'm going away in ten days, and he'll forgive and forget. Absence makes the heart grow softer." And with this consoling thought he trolled on to .oin Grace Munson, whose companion was jut taking his leave. Grace was like a delicate flower sparkling with the dew of morning. She had soft blue eyes, an exquisite complexion, and golden hair. Alto gether she made a picture of rare beauty, and it was no wonder that -Bernard Norton found pleasure in merely looking at her. That evening Clarice did not ap pear in the drawing room, and Nor ton was free to devote himself to her lovely cousin. Mrs. Barton observed his conduct with displeasure; from tbe JLr.st she had not approved of her 'daughter's suitor, and wondered what attraction the carelesa frivolous young man held for hor sensible Clarice Next morning a note was handed Norton. Its contents filled him with mingled ennoyance and relief. 'When you receive this." Clarice wrote, "I shall have gone to my aunt for a time. You do not love me. Bernard, and it Is best for our en gagement to end. Be happy in your own way and be very sure 1 shall be : in mine. ' That was all. Bernard's self-esteem was seriously wounded by the epistle. But he consoled himself with the thought that ho was now free to woo the charming Graco, and at the end of the month mado a formal avowal of love to her. I have loved you ever since we met," he said. "Claries saw this and generously sot me free." And Grace, who had become very much enamored of her handsome suiter, gave him the answer he craved. ' Two weeks later Mrs. Barton and Clarico were on their way to Europe, and Bernard was trying to submit to ihe stern decree of Grace's father. Yes. sir. you can marry my daugh ter." Mr. Munson had said, ' if you love her well enough to wait three .-years. I am opposed to early mar riages. No girl is fit for wedlock 'before she Is 21, and 25 is still bat - ier." It occurred to Bernard that he was likely to spend the greater part of his youth in the capacity of an "en gaged tnaa" and he did not improve in humor, thereby. Grace was an acknowledged belle, and for a long time he was pleased at her success. But there was a secret bitterness underlying his pleasure, for he saw little of his betrothed, ex cept in society's whirlpool There would be no change in this state of affairs until their lime of probation -ended, and feeling in a false position, he concluded to spend the remaining year in travel. When he bade Grace good-bye ho was struck with the fact that she looked much older than she did at vthe time of their , ongagemont Two .years of dissipation had left their mark upon her delicate beauty. Be ,; careful Grace." . he said. "Keep some of your roses for me un- "tll 1 claim you." ; He said nothing of her fidelity; ho was only afraid she : might . lose the beauty he worshipped. Grace was sorry to lose her lover; -she felt desolate or a whole day. and -cried herself to sleep the first night. But Bernard wrote her charming letters of travel and. she soo forgot her grief. She sent him in return the ', 'briefest of notes for' the charming Grace did Dot excel as a correspond ent But one glance at the porcelain picture ha carried, consoled him for that "..; , -'..:. - A fellow can endure weak, insipid tletters." he thought, -better than the tight of a plain fare aorott his tatl three times a day." Bernard loitered here and there, then made his way back. He was in do baste to reach Chicago until a few weeks Ixifore the time appointed for his marriage, which was to take place in the early autumn. Ono morning in J i J he rang the bell of the Mun son mansion and sent up his card to the ladles. There was a step on the stair, the trail of a garment and a woman entered a woman of medium height with a beautifully rounded fig ure and a face of dazzling brilliancy. kbo approached Bernard and cordially extended her hand. I came down to make your wel come a little less inhospitable. Mr. Nortoa" she said. My aunt and cousin are, unfortu nately, at a concert; they were not aware of your return. You are quite well? I do not find you so much changed as I expected." He looked at the charming speaker in mute wonder. I beg pardon I J" he began. Her face was a ripple of smiles as she regarded him. waiting '. him to proceed. Is it possible I am so changed that you do not know me? Have three years aged Clarice Barton so much?" For tho first time in hit life Ber nard Norton lost his composure. He sank into a chair with an ejaculation of wonder. Clarice Barton! ' he cried. Why. It does not seem possible! When did you return':" "Nearly two months ago." Miss Barton replied with hot well-bred composure as the gracefully seated herself. My dear mother died in Rome last winter. flEurope was un endurable after that, so 1 came back to America." But you are so changed!" Bernard murmured, after expressing regret at her loss. Miss Barton smiled sadly. "The years change us all, " she said, 'they leave their mark." "Oh, it is not that!" he hastened to say. "You look not a day older than when I last saw you; but pardon my boldness you are wonder fully improved." I am like my mother's people." Clarke answered quietly. "They all mature late; and the climate of Italy, where 1 remained most of tho time, was very beneficial to me. I hope to return in the course of a few months. They fell to talking of their travel and 12 o'clock struo c before Norton thought they had been chatting twenty minute. At that moment the hall-door clanged and steps came to wards them. He arose to his feet. Impossible!" he said looking at his watch. cannot have been here an hour! Really " What he would have said remained unspoken, for Mrs. Munson and Grace appeared in the doorway. His betrothed was very becomingly dressed, but so faded that she seemed like the ghost of her former self. Three years of society had done their work. Tht, cheek had lost its bloom, the nose was sharpened and the beautiful eyes lacked luster. As she stood beside Clarice ior a moment she seomed utterly eclipsed by her once plain cousin. fiVlfj The meeting of the lovers was con strained, and Bernard took his de parture, promising to call next da', which he did. Grace informed him that he must wait patiently for two more weeks before he couid see her often, as she had engagements for every hour. but you and Clarice can console each other," she said. -It will be pleasant to compare notes of travel." Bernard was not slow to avail him self of this opportunity, and for two bright brief weeks he walked, talked, drove and chatted with the charming woman that he once slighted. What a blind fool he had been! It was Clarice he loved Clarice he had al ways loved. She was the boy's fancy and the man's ideal! It was this cul tured. Interesting woman who suited him, and not the faded, and frivolous Grace. He grew mad with pain and rage as he realised his position. He walked into the parlorone after noon, where Clarice was playing softly. Do not let mo disturb you." he said, as she half rose from the piano. "I am in a mood to have my savage soul soothed by music. Are the ladies out?'' 'I think so." answered Clarice. "I have just returned from my walk and have not seen them." She played on softly, her dark, dreamy eyes fixed on space. Bernard looked at her with a brooding pas sion. Suddenly he crossed over to where she sat Clarice" he cried, "my own Clarice. 1 cannot be longer silentl I love you I have always loved you. Years ago you cast me off for a fool ish whim and I tried to content myself by forming other ties. I know now that I have not fonrotten you. Clarice, take me back again!" His voice; was trembling with emotion; but she stood coldly regard ing him, and her voice was very harsh as she said: "Mr. Norton, i cannot excuse this behavior. I loved you once very dearly, but you made me ashamed of that love and I cast it out I have for three years thought of you as my cousin's betrothed, almost her husband, and you insult both her and me by your conduct I supposed that you knew I was to bo married as soon as my term of mourning expires. Allow me to pass." She' swept by him like a queen. Tho alcove curtains parted and Grace stood before him. "1 have heard all.'' she said. 'Go, and never let me see your face again!":' She dropped the shining solitaire which she had worn so long into his hand, and pointed toward the door. With bowed head he left her presence aad went down tho marble steps for the last time. He had played for Bach in turn and lost . both. Texas Siftina's. ... Wkui tV'A'iearilna'ftiAf MM ftlld.

Well, we are glad the Carnegie con tributed a quarter million to the g. o. p. j fund and lost it J Now, that the Democrats have won j such a sweeping victory they must d' j something for the people, ebso they, too ' will be in the tureen in JJ. j We have more tenant farmers here in America than in Ireland. Of course J this is a big country, and we do not realize the true situation, but we have the tenanto alle tamee and the situa-1 tion is becoming more and more critical ; Carnegie's subscriptions to campaign 1 funds have all gone wrong this year. ! First, he contributed $5,000 to aid in the election of Keir Hardie. Hardie promptly Bent it to Carnegie's locked- out workmen at Homestead. Then ho contributed $100,000 as his personal contribution to Carter's corruption land and that, too, baa gone glimmer ing. We want no farmers to farm the farmers that farm the farms; on the contrary, the farmers who farm the farms should have the product of their own labor and the other "farmers" must be forced into some useful occupa tion and mado to earn their own living. instead of sponging it off the labor of others. The farmer is devoured by usury be cause he has borne the chief burden of taxation; because he gives the transpor tation companies one-half his crop to get the other half to market, and ths little that's left him after paying inter est and taxes puts him on mighty short rauons. The trouble is that our churches and "charity" organizations do not eet down to bed-rcck. In fact, they don't tmuK. rney don't realize that there s a cause for poverty and that if the working women of Chicago had their dues they would need no assistance in the shape of charity. Think of a work er being dependent upon charity! One door in Vanderbilt's mansion cost f"0,000. There are several million men in the United States who would feel like a king if they had a little cottage all their own'wortti even $o00 -and yet tms one door in vanderbilt s mansion would build one hundred $500 cottages; or house five hundred families. Itn't there something wrong when one can have so much as to invest &0,000 in a door, and so many who are unable to build even a $;00 "shanty"':' The protective tariff policy of the g. o. p. has been a standing invitation to the scum of the old world to come here and bring their cholera with them. The people of the old world have been assured that owing to protection we pay higher wages. It has bten a lie from s'art to finish, but it has had its effect and foreigners, desirable and undesira ble have been flocking to this country at the rate of half a million a year for years past and today we have three million tramps. Labor is engaged in a cut-throat competition for employment and the price of labor, in consequence, is ueciiuiug. "A dollar now will buy more than ever before," shouts the "honest" moneyite. That's the trouble of it. It buys too much of labor and of the pro ducts of labor, and yet pays but one dollar of indebtedness. The currency has been so contracted that it now takes fourtimes the wheat it did twenty years ago to get a dollar, and yet the dollars pays but one dollar of debt, no matter if the debt was contracted twenty years ago. It is these constantly appreciat ing dollars that make it next to impos sible for the man who is in debt to get out, and forces him to contribute his earnings, year by year, to Shylock la payment of usury. Congressman Tom L. Johnson of Ohio suggests that the lower house of con gress pass a tariff reform measure in December ard send it to the senate. If the senate will not pass it, or if Harri son vatoes it, then call au extra session as foon as possible after March 4th. Such a plan will convince the people that Democracy means "business", and will put the responsibility upon the Republicans, where is rightfully be longs, for the need of calling the extra session. It Is not at all probable that the house bill would get past the senate much less past Harrison, and we believe an extra session absolutely necessary, if reform work is put off till the regu lar session of the 53d congress no meas ure can get through before the summer of 1894. Let Mr. Johnson's idea be followed; give the Republicans a chat.ee to assist the Democrats in complying with the wishes of the people. If thev will not do so, a long-plundered people will endorse the calling of an extra session. Cowardly Carnegie. General Grosvenor of Iowa expresses his opinion of Andrew Carnegie in most vigorous terms. In a late inter view he said: Carnegie intentionally precipitated the Homestead strike shortly before the election in spite, against the re publican party because it had cut down the tariff on articles the Carnegie com pany manuiactured. ine one man who left Washington chagrined and disappointed after we passed the McKinley act, was this man Carnegie. He sulked silently for a time and then took his revenge when hi opportunity offered It is most significant that the Home stead strike occurred at the very time when workingmen throughout the country were beginning to look ahead and form their opinions as to what course they should take in the national election. I think a case could be made out before any intelligent American jury showing that the Homestead trouble was purposely brought on by Carnegie for its political effect. Carnegie's name would go sown in history as that of the- greatest coward and sneak of tne age. Why did he run off to Scotland when he owed it to the republican party to come and make decent explanations and right the wrong he had done. If he could not explain, be ought to have sent $5,000,000 to the republican head quarters at New York. It would have been but a drop in the bucket compared with the tremendous injury he did the party. a ftome Other iment, arm Keeping aiwayaiir ---a... . j HEREDITARY CLERGYMEN. ramlilM That Ha HI4 la tabrokca cfwMioa. thm Nu.'ad Ofilr. The church of England hat had many examples of clerical families. In tome cates these families, having inherited the presentation of a living, have very naturally trought up one of their members in holy orders to keep the benefice la the family. In othera doubtless, a ttrong theo logical bias has almost forced its members to enter the church; and it has been suggested, says Chambers' Journal that these clerical 'amities have inherited from their ancestors sermons, and thus having a good stock of these essentials have chosen the preaching career merely to utilize their heirlooms. One of the oldest clerical families is the Collins family of CornwalL This was founded at the reformation by one of the curliest of the married priests, a certain Edward Collins, who was instituted recto- of lllogan in 153J. He and his descendants were recrtors of the same place for the next one hundred and tifty-one yeara a break of twelvo years excepted. For five generations the clerical descent of this family runs from father to son; then for two generations from uncle to a nephew; then a father and son; diverging from the main line it goes for two generations fi-om uncle to a nephew who is now living thus mak ing a total of eleven generationa each represented by one or more clergy men, lor a period of over three hun dred and fifty years some member of the Collins family has been in holy orders. The ollins family has been connected with the church for half a century longer than the Newcome family, to which, however, it must yield the palm as regards the distinc tion attained by its members.

Anyone may test this by dropping sweet oil on the thorax of a wasp; it very soon dies. For this reason oil has been found one of the best things to use for the destruction of insects.
