that when the girl

for tbe summer she
is going to greatly
alter her mode of
living. Sbe does
not intend to do
anything of the
sort Sbe has been
bemian, and alone
for ten months in
the year, and she
is going to be independent, aloue, and
bobemiaa for the remaining two months.
This is supposing tbat the girl bachel
or's year begins the 1st of September,
which, indeed, it does. For the 1st of
September she returns to the city, looks
cp an apartment for herself and her
chum if she bag one and makes her
plans for the winter campaign.
But now she is away for the summer,
and is enjoying two long months of
bachelor-hood in a girl-bacbelor'a way,
which means tbat she is unhampered by
frills, furbelows, conventionalities, or
the presence of a mau. Wben she
packed up her trunk for the summer
outing sbe put into it several suits of
flannel that would be suitable for moun
tain wear, for boating, or for rambles in
the woods; then after sbe bad added
such toilet accessories as sbe would al

trunk-tray, and the lid thereof with

but Saturday brings them to the sea
shore in great and overwhelming num
bers. And not until the following Tues
day or Weduesda? does the place know
them no more. Then they are gone for
two or three days, to reappear again,
fresh and debonaire as ever, to delight
the hearts of the maidens who await
them by the sad sea waves.
On the beach it was at Long Branch

works. She merely reads Tolstoi be
cause she finds in him a largo and rare
freedom from conventionalities which
suit her tastes entirely. Aud so she
takes him along, intending to skim over
the bad parts and read the good ones in
order to establish herself firmly in the
views which she already holds regarding
men, women, and things.
Thus beautifully equipped with all
mings necessary lor the happiness of
any human being possessed with the
spirit which any girl-bachelor enjoys,
this firm-hearted, manly girl sallies forth
with her trunk, if not in hand, ot least
npou her hack, looking for a nice cool
ihady place, not very far from the city.
A long railroad ride she can not afford,
and besides she wishes to be near town,
oo that she can run in occasionally to
hear a Thomas concert, enjoy an even
ing iu the roof garden, or see the fire
works at Manhattan.
Having found just the place which
be wants she assures herself that the
board will be fairly good and then sbe
cours around the country in search of
a creek and a boat, also a gun and fish
ing tackle. If you will take the trouble
to drive out into the country early any
summer morning you will see the girl
bacbelor starting out from the farm
house where sbe is rusticating with her
gun and fltlnod in hand and a book
under one arm on her way to the boat,
which she has chnrtcred for the sum'
mer. From her side will swing a bas
ket of eatables aud strapped nctmi her
houldera will be a gentlemanly canteen

her you will see tbat she tases a short
cut through the woods, stopping only
long enough to take n peep iuio ine
bird's neat to see how the young rofcins
re getting along and to bid good mor
row to the iparrow who has built down
in raspberry hedge and who is frighten
ed all day long lest some one should dis
cover the secret of ber neat.
But tbe girl bachelor does not barm
her bird friends. 8he hnrries along,
topping again perhaps to fill a leaf
with ripe berrica or to gather a few
arly apple from a tree that overhanirs
tbe fence of some friendly neighbor.

her back, leans back upon them, opens
her book, and prepares for a lovely
long day of absolutely sweet do-nothiug-Bcse.
Sibyl, how cau you ever do anything so

"but listen, girls," said Sibyl, "and I

Since my last, however, and the hasty

ject, a case has arisen hero wherein
this direct method, as it may be. called,
is made the subject of severe animad
versions ujion the part of the I.ondon

that the case has been put down on the
"question list'' in the house of com

Thre is but a very small transition
from the Spanish pronunciation pass
ing up, an it did through the French,
and then converted into English. The
namo of Illnois, if so derived, is
"Plains," and the term is verv sig
nificant, because there is no stato'ln tin
union tbat Is loveler than tho state ol
Illinois. It is vastly more level than
either Iowa, Nebraska or Kansas. Tim
latter state has variations of over 4,f0
feet in its levels, and is mounUncoiis as
compared wltn Illinois, its vast inland
prairies. Inhabited by Indians, very
properly gave to those Indians tho
name of tho "Llanos"' Indians, Hence,
it is reaaonablo to believe that the word
Illinois Is Latin origin, and has no d(
Hvation whatever from Indian languag

A Depot Incident.
Many tender little incidnets are wit.
nessed by tbe oftlclals about the union
d ipot. Something happened last night
that caused a number of people to tern
their beads. Some of them were smil
ing when they looked. Some of thorn
were not smiling when they turned
their heads back the other
way. Perhaps a tender chord
was touched in somebody's breast; may
be a tender thought of a dead mother
worked Its way up through the dead
leaves and mold of years of busy life
and forgctfuliRsj. It was only a gray
haired, toll worn old woman, grown
wrinkiod with the cares of three scoro
year or moro an old mother, likely a
farmer s wife or widow, She was hug
glng to her throbbing breast a big, tell,
bjonsd boy well, hardly a boy, as bo
must have been full 25. Tbe big tears
were chasing one another down tho
deep furrows of her foiled chocks, but
there wa happiness beaming from every
lineament of her features. 8ho drew
the big fellow to lier breast again and
again, while ho kissed tho tear from
the old cheek; kissed her with an ardor
that any young maid of seventeen might
think adorable ia a lover. They were
dea-er to each pther then lovers.
On down the platform lingered anott
er young man who seemed to to con
nected with tho mother and her son.
Ho carried aval lee and kept looking
back toward tbo couple. I approached
him and in answer to a ountion. he
ll: "Vos. thev are mv mother and
long time? Weil yes, long for tbem,
very long. It's only five eefka, though,
but you soo, they lived on the farm and -never
were apart a eek ai a time be
fore. Vou see It goes bard with mother
to be away from nor boy.'
They stopped several times to embrace
before they pasted around tho batrgaaTO
room and reached tbo oablo car. Kan
