The next dar I had a delicious surprise.
We were sitting lo the orchard In-fore
the children's dinner; they had taken their
noonday lep early, and I had brought
them out again.
We were all huddled together on a little
grass hillock, for I was telling Holf and
Jojce a story; Kepgle was talking to the
flowers na bad gathered. He had quite a
little language of his own to supplement
bU scanty stock of words. I heard "gurgle-da"
very often, so I kuew he was
happy, my bonny boy, whom 1 loved bet
ter eTery day. All at once I looked up,
and there waa my beloved mhtress stand
ing by the little white gate watching us,
and she looked so pale and lovely, with the
sun shining upon her brown hair, that a
curious fear crowed me that she was too
good and beautiful to live. Why do we
alwaya say that, as though things of beau
ty were ran upon earth t"
"Kan, darlings, there Is mother!' I ex
claimed, atd Joyce gave quite a shout of
joy as aha raced down the orchard. It
was pretty to sea Reggie following her as
fast as bis fat legs could carry him. He
fell down, but picked himself Dp, still
holding bis flowers, and then thrust them
In his mother's face as she stooped to kiss
him. I detained Kolf by me until- Mrs !

nestled close to ber.

that we should come together. a art

without teeing my darlings."
"I am glad yon are going, Mrs. Morton;
you are not looking well;" for she had
grown very thin during these five weeks,
and there was an air of delicacy about her
that I did not like to see. "It is quite time
you should have some rest."
She looked a little amused at that.
"That Is the last thing I shall get In
Scotland. It we were going alnne, my
" husband ami I, there might be some prob
ability of getting a little time to one'a
elf, bat we are to stay with the Kgertons,
They an Terr gay people, and have a large
party for the shooting season. Lady Flor

talkers I know."
I did not like to hear this. If only she
could bare stayed In this sweet place
among her own people, she would have
been rested and refreshed.
She echoed my sigh merrily, for she
Seemed in excellent spirits.
"Don't be so dfixlous about me, my good
Merle. I have the best husband in the
world to take care of me, If I do fall ill,
Whlcn Is very unlikely."
Ob, tba blindness of an affectionate wo
man wbep her husband is concerned!
"I think t am very fortunate to be able
to leare my children so comfortably. You
are a tower of strength to me, Merle.
Now you will be quite happy to remain
here for another month or six weeks, uu
til we come back from Scotland?" looking
at me rather wistfully.
"Quite happy," I returned, frankly, "if
only I could give Mrs. Markham satisfac
tion, which I always fall to do;" for Rolf,
finding as dull company, had decoyed
Joyce down the orchard to hunt for a gray
rabbit they had lost, and I could speak
"Tell me all about it," she said, gently,
"lam going to talk to Adelaide, but I
should like your version first."

auch patience, and though she said little,
one was so sure with whom lay her sym

Adelaide thinks of you, you are right in
my eyes. I will tell ber myself that I have
no objection to your taking the children
to Wheeler's Farm. Molly Is at good a
creature as ever lived, and I remember
how my father used to take me when the
other Molly, Hannah's mother, was alive,
and what treat It was to my childish
eyes to see her skim the cream In those
great yellow pans in tba dairy."
We aat talking in this way for some
time, and then Mr. Morton and Mrs.
Markbatn joined us. I thought she looked
little taken aback when be came up tc

beach. My dear mistress accompanied
us arid shortly afterward Miss Cheriton
and Mr. Morton made their appearauce,
iiuuipauifcu uy jur. Jlawtry. He had,
ridden up to Marshlauds on business,
and had been decoyed Into an hour's idle
ness. What a pleasant time we had.
Mr?. Morton and I sat under tho break
water, watching the children help their
father as he built up a mlchty gaud fort
ress. To our great amusement, Mr. Haw
try worked too, while Gay assisted Kesris
to fill his bucket with smooth white peb
bles for the ramparts.
"Isn't Alick ridiculously busy?" laughed
Gny, as she passed. "I do believe he is
quite happy to Hud a spade in his hand
aiialn. And do look at Farmer Roger."
for she sometimes naughtily called him
by that name; "he Is working as hard as
lliouith he were amoug his haymakers."
I wonder if Mr. Hawtry heard her. for
he threw down his spade and came up to
us with a droll, ashamed sort ot look.
"I believe I am half a child still," he
said, throwing himself down on the gaud.
"I have often envied the little rogues dig
ging their trenches; they do seem to be
lieve in their own work. You are laugh
ing at me. Mrs. Morton, but yourown hus
band Is just as bad."
"If you knew how glad I am to see him
with the children!" she returned, with a
Silt Of llllslv smile. "X tin not tMiilr

know Miss Kenton agrees with me, do you
not, fierier '
It was nice of her to draw me luto
I saw Mr. Hawtry looking at me inquir
ingly, and I said, quietly; "I think the
best people are those who never outgrow
their childhood. We are apt to lauh ut
children," I went on, for my mistress was
near me, and I was talking to her more
than to Mr. Hawtry, "and yet their per
fect faith teaches us many lessons; they
have to contend with so great a difficulty."
"What special dlfliculty do you mean.
Miss Ken ton?"
"The difficulty of expression. Their
language does not allow of full expres
sion; their wonder bubbles over, but
tiiey find no word to convey their wonder
ment." "Miss Fenton is a philosopher," ob
served my mistress, softly. "We often talk
about these things, Roger" (she called
him Roger quite as a matter of course);
"thinking uloud is very pleasant In com
"Miss Kenton seems to think to some
purpose," interposed Mr. Hawtry. I
"thought he seemed a little amused. "It
would be a good thing if sho could teach
other young ladies to be as unconvention
al nud useful."
I found this speech a little embarrassing
He evidently knew all about my theory,
and his words seemed to imply perfect ap
proval of it, but I was not sufficiently at
my case to meet his menniug half-way; on
tho contrary, I was rather provoked at
his breaking in on our conversation. I
made an excuse, nud went down to the
margin of tho water, where Miss Cheriton
and Reggie were playing touch-last with
the waves, and there we stayed until Mr.
Morton looked at his watch and gave the
signal for our return, and then we all
went home together.
On our way Miss Cheriton took me by
the arm, and said, merrily: "Wo are nil
going to have a nursery tea this evening.
Alick oud Mr. Hawtry are both coming
up. Don't you think you had better hurry
homo to prepare tor us, Merle?" for she
always called me Merle now.
I needed no second bidding, and leaving
Joyce In her caro, very quickly overlook
Hannah, and with Susan's help we had
goon arrauged the leti-table.
I thiuk everyone enjoyed themselves;
they would insist on crowdiug round the
tea-table, though It would hardly hold
them, and Mr. Morton teased his wifu
about an Incident in her childish days,
when she had quarreled with Adelaide
about some strawberry Jam at this very
"I do love this old nursery, Alick," she
returned, plaintively. "It is a treat even
to drink out of the old blue cups again.
Nurse I'arfltt used to be so proud of the
old blue china." And after tea she took
her husband to see the cot where she and
(lay hud slept when they wero tiny chil
dren, and we could hear them laughing
together over the prints in the little black
frames. I had lo fetch something foi
Reggie, and I found them standing hand
in hand before tlie"Five .Senses." I think
she was telling III in somethhig that touch
ed him, for he was looking wonderfully
Interested, but there was a sort of pain in
his face, too.
Mr. Hawtry was on the window-seat
with Reggie, and his horse was ut the
"Thank you for a very pleasant hour.
Miss Fenton," he said, holding out his
hand. "I think wo are all tho better for
an afternoon with tho children." And
then he and Mr. Morton went away.
My dear mistress took leave of its soon
after that, for they were going back to
town that evening. I could see her heart
was full as she bado the children good
bye, but she was very brave, and smiled
at us to the last.
Gay enme up to us by and by. She said
her father and Adelaide were dining out.
and sho meant to spend the evening with
us. I thought she looked Just a trine dull,
as though something had goue wrong
since tea. I wondered If she wero sorry to
have missed Mr. Rossller, who we heard
had called that afternoon.
Sho sat by me very quietly as I undress
ed Reggie, and listened to Joyce's prajcrs,
but when the children were in bed she
asked me to come with her luto the gar
den, as it was a sultry evening. Hannah
and Rolf were cutting out pictures to
paste in the scrap-book, and I knew I
rould snfelv trust them, and might in
dulge In on hour's enjoyment.
It was Just after sunset, and Gay pro
posed that we should go down to our fa
vorite seat in the orchard "that Is If you
ore not afraid of the dows, Merle," she
added; "bnt there Is such a pretty peep of
the corn-fields from there, and If the moon
rises early tho effect is beautiful." I was
too young and strong to be afraid of any
thing; so wo speedily found our way to

her head a litile, aud her faco was full of
delicate scorn. "There may be corn and

Temperature of Tkees. From
some observations recorded by If. L,
ltussel in tlie Ilotanical Gazette, it ap
pears that as a general rule the temper
ature of the interior of a tree is some
what higher than that of the air, except
during the warmer parts of the day, the
maximum temperature of the air being
generally between one and two p. m.,
and the minimum between six and
seven a. m. The comparative tables
show that heat is absorbed and radiated
more rapidly in the outer layers than in
r-xperimonts niiuio at a time when
the buds were Btvtincr. in order to de
termine whether the chemical action
earned on in the tissues gives rise to
heat, led t .) the conclusion that it ia
very doubtful whether the metabolite
processes, involved generate enough
heat to influence the ordinary thermom
eter. A curious difference, however,
was discovered in the wood of the cak
and pine in winter, the author having
found that the temperature of the pine
was lower than that of the oak at all
times except during the latter part of
the night and early morning. This is
attributed to the thick coating of tho
leaves on the pine preventing absorp
tion of heat bv the trunk, since the
larch, which has similar wood, resent
bles the oak rather than the pine in the
matter of temperature. The further
conclusion is reached that the. direct
absorption of heat is the main cause of
the high temperature of trees, and that
it is largely dependent upon the charac
ter of the bark, smooth-barked trees bo-
ing wanner as a rule, than thick-barked
Longevity of Elephants. The
joi'rnals of Ceylon have recently men
tioned the death of an elephant that
was well known on the island and had
licen seen by several generations of En
glishmen, He was called Sello and had
belonged to the last of the Kings of
Kandy. He was one of the hundre.l
elephants that were taken by the English
(iovernment in 1815, when the Kandyan,
Dynasty was overthrown. Atthisepoih
the elephant was said to be fifteen yeais
old. I f this if correct, he died a natural
death at the age of eighty-nine years.
Relation of Plants to Noil. Mr.
C. Ville, in a paper read before tho
Academy of Sciences of Paris, shows
that the composition of the soil influ
ences plants in five principal characters,
viz : The stature, tho color, the amount
of Caroline and chlorophyl and the quan
tity of vegetation. A table is given
showing the difference In stature and
color of plants of the common hemp ac
cording to the manure used, from which
it is evident that this plant flourishes
least iii soil without manure, next in
manure without potash and in mauuro
without nitrogen. The absence of limn
i:u(t phosphate in the manure in tl
case of hemp did not interfere so larg.
!; with the color and stature of tl.
iiaim. It would appear, therefor
that rich manure is essential, at leas
to the development of foliage.

pulp or succulent tissue is derived

pericarp, but from the outer integ
ment of the seed also. In Citrus it is
due to hairs which spring into the ovar

outermost layer of cells of the ovulii;
also undergo a change, their inner and
tide walls becoming lignilied and the
outer wail becoming mucilaginous and
forming part of the mucilage of the
pulp, just as it dues in linseed. The red
color of dulcamara berries is due to the
appearance of a large number of chro-

weakness against strength. But it isal3

is danger ahead in these strained feel
ings between the two bodies. Some day
something will come which everybody
will deplore. If justice could be done
tilings might be better.
In a Fix.
Congress is in the fix of the darkey,
who did'nt know what to do, and so
didn t do it. On one side are the cor
porations and monopolies who secured
for congressmen their nominations and
expect them to stand by their special
interests and priviliges. On the other
hand are the farmers and laborers whose
votes elected them, and whose votes can
leave them at home next time, who ask
for some relief for hard times for the
poor man. Heretofore congressmen
and senators have given the corporations
and rich men the laws they asked for
and have given the poor men taffy and
buncombe, and they are doing it now,
but with less confidence in the result
than usual. As long as farmers were
able to keep the wolf ten feet from the
door they seemed to think a little taffy
nnd buncombe sufficient pay for giving
their substance to millionaires, but now
that the wolf has his nose and fore feet
across their thresholds taffy is felt to be
too weak a diet for the emergency. It
has been the habit of farmers and
mechanics to sit idly by while the cor
poration machine ground out nomina
tions for them to vote, but they propose
to help run the machine hereafter.
If you get into the habit of always
letting your eyes attend to a thing first
you will avoid lots of embarrassing
tit nations. Suppose you have been
discussing Miss Belleville's hair, and
have commit ted the indiscretion of cal
ling it red, when a voice sounds close tit
your sine, wiuc.ii to your norror von
l,,illk on r(coKllizo Miss Belleville's
v.ui'e-why give a convulsive start, fl
confused snicker, and a compromising
gurgie oi nan iormcu explanation or
deprecation ? You will be wiser and
safer, and more graceful, too, if you
just turn your eyes to see if it is Miss
Belleville. If it is, your complete reposo
may make hei think she didn't hear
aright, in case she did hear, and will not
Arouse her suspicions in case she didn't
hear. New York Star. '
