Her Husbands Letter.
T is best on the
whole not to
read your hus
band's letters
until he hands
them to you, and
it is much the
best not to ex
amine his pock
ets, except for
boles, and then
-set aside whatever you find there
without examination.
I believe that Mrs. Elliott would
give any young wife that advii-e to
lay; but there was a time we are nil
fallible, being mortal when she had
been married about two years, that
she made herself an amateur detec.
tive so far as her Frank went, and
had found holes that she could not
explain one that hud something in
it about Clara particularly. It was
only half a letter, but it was suspi
cions Naturally jealous, she was too
proud to betray the fact intentional
y; but there is no keeping a secret of
that sort from the servants. They
knew it, other people guessed at it.
Her fancies about Clara oh, who
was Clara? made her heart ache,
but rumaging and prying did not
help her.
When her husband was away as
lie sften was she suffered tortures.
He might, for all she knew, be lead
ing a double life, and as she steamed
all his letters open before she for
warded them, and now and then
found something that might mean
, scare than it said; and so we come to
: an afternoon when she Mrs THintt
came down stairs dressed for dinner,
for which she always made a 'careful
toilet, and met the waitress ascend
ing the upper floor. The girl's place
. atthat moment was in the dining
Vtom, and Mrs. Elliott knew that
nothing was needed or forgotten
that pertained to the dinner; more
over the girl had an air of secrecy
About her, and seemed to be hiding
something under her apron.
"What's that you have there,
Rosa?" Mrs. Elliott asked a little
The girl stopped, looked down,
and answered:
"Onlv a letter, ma'am."
' "For yourself?" asked Mrs. Elliott,
i -"No, ma'am, for roaster," said the
"Well, give it to me," said Mrs.
The girl hesitated.
"Indeed, ma'am, the lady said to
crive it to himself," said Rosa.
"A lady? A beggar with a petition,
J suppose," "aid Mrs. Elliott.
"A lady, ma'am, and she's gone,"
said the girl. "She wore a blue veil;
but I never saw her before, I'm sure."
"Oh, very well," replied her mis
trets. "Give me the note. Mr. Elli
ott is shaving and would not wish to
be disturbed."
The girl gave a little impertinent
toss to her head as she obeyed and
flounced downstairs in a way that
made her mistress resolve to give her
The trouble was that the lady In
the blue veil had given Rosa some
money, had whispered, "Mr. Elliott,
and no one else, and had hurried
away in a suspicious mannner.
Mrs. Elliott meanwhile stood
turning the envelope over. The ad
dress was merely her husband's
name Mr. Frank Elliott and the
edge of the flap was still damp, as if
oealed at the door. It would open
at the touch she could read it and
tknow its contents if she chose.
"I do chose," she said the next
moment, and the edge ot the en
velops rolled back and a slip of
paper feu out. vn n was written
these words: .
"DBAS FBsttc: Meet bm at the usual plant
If yoa caa dodgv oar wife.
- A moment more and the letter was
re olsd, and Mrs. Elliott, trembling
with anger, stood leaning against the
window frame. She felt that the
dread that had been upon her had
takes Hap at last.
However, aba would not bt hasty,
Cm woatJ wait until aha wns sure
tfrat ka daaired to receive the letter
XfkiBot obey the mmmmm H
wJprotoartaat to wm trot
to her. Then tdie would tell him
what she knew ami ak hiscoufideuce.
She carried the letter down-stairs
with her and pla-ed it at his plate,
and as he oiK-ned it she watched him
It certainly did not seem to please
him. He frowned, changed color,
and thrust it into his pocket; but he
went on with his dinner without any
Mrs. Elliott, however, could not re
main silent.
"l'ou look as though you had re
ceived a plumber's bill," she said.
He laughed.
"It's not a bill," he 8oid; "it's a
note, and it vexes me because I shall j
have to change my plans lor tonight.
I intended to takeyou to the theater;
now I can not do it. I
shall have to leave you, and, what is
more, I shall not be back until to
morrow night. I'll send a messenger
to Uncle James. 1U will escort you
to the theater and
I will not tro with vour uncle
James," said Mrs. Eliiott, sharply.
"You must take me; I will not lie used
in this way; you must go with me."
My dear, 1 ran not tell you how it
vexes tmt to hart to leave you," said
Mr. Eliiott.
"Frank," she answered, "I have al
ways said that there are some things
which a wite should not endure."
"Lizzie, m v dear, listen. I w ill take
you to the theater tomorrow night
or the night after; we will enjoy our
selves quite as well. I think it will
rain tonight, anyhow."
Do you suppose 1 am a babv to
fret about not seeing a play?" said
Mrs. Elliott. "No Frank, only 3'ou
must tell me why you breuk the en
gagement and where you are going."
Jiusiness, my dear, business, said
Mr. Elliott, in an nrtifical manner.
I II explain some day. Business is
business. Now, be quiet and com
fortable, like a good girl. Good
night." He tried to kiss her, but she push
ed him away. Then he took his hat
and overcoat and left the house with
u little laugh not like his own.
Hardly hud he passed the threshold
when his wife sprung to her feet, slip
ped on an ulster that hung in a closet
n tlie dining room hall, donned a lit
tle round cap and crrav veil, and
sneaked out of the basement door
sneak was the word.
"She's following him this time,"
lid Rosa to the cook.
"Jealous again," said cook.
"I guess he's giving her reason,"
said Rosa.
'It's something dreadful," said
cook, "the way married men go on."
Meanwhile Mrs. Elliott lurked in
the shadow of the stone balustrades
nd saw that her husband stood un-
er the gas-lamp at the corner ex-
mining the note which he had re
Well, wherever lie wont there also
she would go. Whosoever he mifrht
meet should also meet her. This
was the end of everything, the finale.
But she would not weep she would
have long yea re for that. She would
behave as an insulted wife should.
He wns about to enter a car; she
also hailed it. An ulster and a
thick veil reduce all women
to one level. He would not
know her even if he saw her. She
sat in her corner and saw that he
stood on the platform smoking.
Which way the car was going she
scarcely noticed. He left it at last
and entered another; so did she.
Again he smoked on the platform,
but at last "Fort Ice ferry!" shouted
the couduetor and she followed her
husband into a ferry-boat. It was
dark, and though it did not rain the
air was full of moisture. There
were very few people upon the boat,
but several of them were brutal-looking
men, and they stared at her,
seeming to wonder at her thick veil.
She had forgotten her gloves
and her small, white hands
glistened with rings, some of them
very valuable.
As she left the ferry and, follow
ing her husband's figure, crossed
the great track of a railroad she
trembled with terror. As he ascend
ed the bluff she kilted her skirts and
Who could Clara be? What man
ner of woman was she to appoint a
a rendezvous like this? It was a
nasty, slippery, unpleasant place.
There was a drinking saloon hard by
which seemed "So be full of rough men.
She drew so near to her husband that
she could have touched his coat as
they passed this place, but he did not
look around. And now it began to
rain in earnest, and the road they
had turned into seamed to be two
feet deep with mud, and still Mr.
Elliott marched on. At last a fright
ful thing occurred to Lizzie. She
wore upon her feet a pair of patent
leather ties, and with all this climb
ing and straining of the shoes the
ribbons had comeundone. suddenly
the mud caught at them with that
curious power or suction wnich mua
seems to have at times, and the
shoes came off. In vain she felt
around for them; they seemed to
have vanished. Just then:
"Halloo!" said a voice near her;
"whnt's the matter with you, young
"I nothing!" gasped Mrs. Elliott.
A large policeman stood before titer.
"This an't no place for young wom
en to be kiting arouna aione,
said the policeman. "It's dangerous
if you're a decent girl. What's hap-
nened? Lost yourself?"
"No," said Mrs. Elliott, "I'm not
alone: there s my husband! t rank!
Frankl Frankl"
Mr. Elliott turned and walked back.
"Left you behind did I Lizzie?" he
" Yoa're a mUrhtr careful husband."
said the policeman, "I do think," and
strode away.
Tbmtar.CSrtwkowM a atrvtg
man, simply picked bis little wife up
in bmamisand carried her back to the
grounds w hich encircled the tavern.
Here he set her down upon a woode
platform. Then for a moment hs
vanished and returned with a glass
of wine, which he made Mrs. Elliott
"I've hired a cab," he said; "we'll
drive back to the ferry. It's too
stormy a night to go looking for
Clara; besides, she's thousauds of
miles awav."
"Clara!" cried Mrs. Elliott. "Don't
speak of Clara how dare you?"
"She very nearly ruined me, my
dear. I threw awav lots of money
on her," said Mr- Elliott, ' but she is
looking up now. My dear, I know
you've been rummaging my pockets
and reading my letters for two years,
but I only found out what you sus
pected when my mother told me
that you had asked her if I had ever
known u lady named Clara before I
met von."
"Oil, Frank, don't trv to deceive
me!" sobbed Lizzie. "I read the
note the woman left tonight I"
"Oh, I knew it," said Mr. Elliott;
"it wus fixed for you to read. 1 wrote
it to myself and my mother left
it at the doorat dinner time. I gave
herasignal from the window that she
might know you were coming down
stairs, and I've kept an eye on you
I've watched yoa ever since you left
the door. Mv dear child, I never
knew a Clara in my life; I never had
a doubtful love affair even as a boy.
The note you saw was about nn oil
well in which I had shares the Clara.
She was a fickle creature, I admit,
and made me anxious, but since you
were bound to lie jealous "
"Carriage, sir?" said the driver.
Mr. Elliott lifted his shoeless wife
into the vehicle, and half way home
she vowed that she would never for
give him, but the other half she wept
upon his vest.
"I felt so helpless without my
shoes," she declares, "that my spirit
was fairly broken.
But at all events she wm never

A Terrible Superstition,
A correspondent of Notes and
Queries sends the following extract
from a letter received the L'lth of
June from an English merchant at
I'ernainbuco in Brazil: There has
been quite a reign ot terror here dur
ing past fortnight, oning to the dis
apearance of about a dozen children,
who have, it is said, lieen kidnaped,
some say to be trained forthecircus,
others to be killed for the benefit of
sufferers from leprosy, for which dis
ease there is nocure,butnnoldsuper-
siition istnat acuremay ueomaineu
if the persons attacked eat the inter
nal organs of a young, healthy child,
wash themselves with its blood, and
make grease of its body for anoint
ing their bodies. Whether t here is
any truth in the presumed connec
tion between this beluf and the dis
appearance of the children I cannot
tell: any way, report says there is
the demand, and that the price paid
for a child is 10. It seems really too
horrible to be true; anyway, a panic
exists, and hardly any children are
now seen out, and the public schools
have been almost deserted. Some
people who were supposed to have
bought some children had their car
riage stopped in the street and were
stoaed. Our children now go out
for their walks attended by two ser
vants," St James's Gazette.
AKnloffj- on Silk.
Silk is an agreeable and healthy
article. Used in dress, it retains the
electricity of our bodies; in the drap
ery of our rooms and furniture-covers
it reflects the sunbeams, giving thm
a quicker brilliancy, ami it heightens
colors with a charming light. It
possesses an element of cheerfulness,
of which the dull services of wool are
destitute. It also promotes clean
liness, and will not readily imbibe
dirt, and does not harbor vermin as
kindly as wool does. Its cont inually
growing use by man, accordingly, is
beneficial in many ways. Grace and
oeauty, even, owe something to silk.
You cannot stiffen it like woolen or
inen without destroying all its eloss
and value. The more silk, ribbons,
therefore the more silk kerchiefs
and robes are used instead ot linen
and wool the more graceful becomes
the outward aspect of mankind. A
nuniberof strange, grotespue fash
ions originating in the use of linen
would never have been invented
during the more general employment
oi silk. The fluttering of ribbon, the
rustling and flowing skirts of silk,
the silk kerchief loosely knotted
round the neck, have materially con
tributed to make o'jr customs more
natnral and pleasing to the eye. Ex
