'She is very beautiful," said the gen

Edna leaned against the cushions
and closed her eyes. Soon she aroused
herself and spoke to a kindly-looking

His tall, well proportioned form filled
the doorway, and then, with the ease
of a well-bred gentleman, he advanced,

Mr. and Airs. Browning now arrived.

frightened to death about you," said
the old lady, putting her anus around
the girl's neck. "Wherein the world

"Yes; come by all means," said the
hearty voice of Mr. Browning; and the
old lady added her invitation.
"I will come," he said.

Edna had strange fits of musing.
One evening, when she had spent half
an hour gazing into vacancy, her uncle
rallied her on her abstraction.

Edna never knew what impelled her
to speak, but she answered promptly,

Chester Vaughan, just stepping over

"Quite a scandalous proceeding to

But one day this paragraph appeared
in a daily paper

invention in connection with the steam
engine, is snoriiy to marry miss ver

pointed. Many of our citizens will remember
Captain Johnson who formerly lived
here, and excited both interest and
sympathy by the position in which he
was forced to keep his body by reason
of a severe wound received iu the
army. He was compelled to lie flat on
his stomach at all times. He rode in
this position, slept in it, and attended
to all of his concerns in it. Yet no
man ever met with a more cheerful,
jovial gentleman than he. Always
good natured and appeared happy. He
removed with his most amiable wife
from here to Iowa where they now re
side. A letter from her to the editor
of this paper conveys the pleasing
news of the Captain's gradual improve
ment in health and strength. Al
though compelled mostif the tini to
keep his awkward position, he is able
to change it occasionally to a more
agreeable one. No one cou!d wish
more sincerely than we, that he might
at an early day be restored to the ut
termost. Fremont Tribune.

that all the Master's servants into
whose hands and before whose eyes
this circular may come, will give it en
couragemant, and aid in every way
possible, we sent it forth on wlc23 of
prayer and faith to its mission.

A cheap paint for the floor can bi
made which a strong, smart woman
could apply to any floor: Five pounds
of French ochre, one-fourth of a pound
of glue, and a gallon of hot water. Dis
solve the glue in a small quantity of
the hot water, when wholly melted
add the rest of it. stirring it slowly
until well mixed. Ihen stir in the
ochre, and apply while hot with a good
sized paint brush. When well dried
apply one coat of boiled linseed oil.
The paint dries very quickly, balden
ing in fifteen to twenty-four hours
It is very cheap; the glue is about
twenty-five cents per pound, the ochro
ten cents, to oil about seventy-five
cent3 per gallon; so it is within tho.
reach of any woman. An oaken hue
can be given to new pine floors and
tables by washing them in a solution
of copperas dissolved in strong lye a
pound of the former to a gallon of th
latter. When dry this should be oiled,
aud it will look well for a year or two;
then renew the oiling.
