Tho Clictwynds considered their faintly
quite perfect and complete when the
youngest arrived, and o she was not jmr
ticularly welcome. A girl, and qmte
plaiD, too. Tlie twin-eons were very hand-
oir.i, the twin-unu"htCTs very pretty. Lin
was looked upon at lirst ns a vcrvamde-
sirahlc addition to the family. Later, she
was found to be useful; finally she be
came quite indispensable.
Having r.ever been taught to consider
herself, she grew up to consider everybody
else, and this made her a very convenient
member of tlio household.
It was her enpecial work to attend her
papa, nurse her invalid mamma, cx-.k
Jack s iet dibhes, serve ns amanuensis to
Tom, do Grace's hair, trim Garcia's hats,
And serve as housekeeper to tho entiio
family this long before she wr.g sixteen.
At this time her father died, and tha
household was plunged into comparative
Her mother had hysterics daily a month
after tlie funeral. Jack and Tom no long
er gave the family the support of their
countenances, but married quietly and
took their brides two sisters West.
Tlie remainder of the household re
moved from their city home to an old
farmhouse deep in the country, where
Grace could never find a new way to do
her hair up, and Garcia sulked because
lcr mourning was so unljecoming.
Here Lin was not only housekeeper
and nurse, but literally inaid-of-all-work.
No more uncongenial home could pos
sibly have been allotted to tills family.
They knew nothing about the manage
ment of a farm, which was not strange.
They ha J an aversion to their bucolic
neigli!xr; the domestic conveniences of
tlie l ouse were most primitive, its outside
BHjn-ct rude ::nd not even p'eturesque.
IJ'it it was all that was left of the Chct
wynd property, ami litfl Km had come
art pioneer, and tmoothed the way as far
as MssibIc for the rest.
Tliey came and settled down to their
discontent and lepinings. Stern necessi
ty obliged Grace and Gaicia to make
mie elf.t for their dailv comfort; but it
was very little. Von Lm came the heat
and burden of the d;iy.
This was looked upon as a mattcr-of-coursc.
Did not Em know how to cook
and wash dishes Grace had never
cooked a meal or waslfed a dLh in her
Em could make bread, trade with tho
butcher, and walked three miles to tho
post-oihec twice a wvek. Garcia declared
that small things made her sick.
So Em made tires, cooked meals, did
the family washing and ironing, nursed
lier mother ami waited on her sisters.
The girls had each a lover. It wns a
little strange, though Gmce and Garcia
declared that Em had drab hair, Em had
nevertheless a most devoted lover John
Melvin by naine a young dot tor, and as
yt-t too poor to marry.
Em's sister cou'd not reproach her with
tnis, for young Uordcn Grace's lover
and Lieutenant Egbert Garcia's fiance
were neither of them rich enough to mar
ry penniless wives. To do them justice,
they did not, however, desert the girls
when they became jioor.
"We arc- just ruined for life," said
Grace, when they first eaine to Strawber
ry Farm why thus titled I cannot siiy,
for there wasn't a strawberry, on it "just
rained! How can I- ever be married in
style, now? '
"For that matter I don't see how we
can be married at all," rcsiwinded Garcia.
"Lieutenant Egbert's pay barely supjorts
himself, ami lJordeu don't wan't to brin
a wife on his father. Tisn't likely !"
"Don't scold ! Oh, my head my head !n
moaned poor Mrs. Chctwynd.
All the time Em was silent, though her
troubles were equally important why
not, 6he was only Em.
"There's no hope of ever getting out of
this," reiterated Gaicia in a lower tone.
"My dears," faintly essayed their moth
er, "you forgot your Aunt IJjthia."
"Oh, she will leave her money to an
institution for providing nondescript dogs
w ith silver collars and patent ventilated
dog kennels," cried Grace, who was tho
witty one of the family.
"I don't know why you should be so
ecornful of your aunt, my dear girls. She
is eighty years old, now, and has always
treated you civilly, though not seekin
your s)ciety. She is feeble, and prefers
seclusion and her pets to more exacting
6ociety. I, myself, have no doubt that
she will remember you both all" re
membering Em "in her will. Now be
comforted with that idea, and don't fret
Dy more to-day. it quite wears me out."

Tlie letter had just arrived from Pennsyl

"We aro to take our choice!'' cried
"Stop!" said Mrs. Chetwynd, leaning
upon her pillows and reading the letter
with a flushed facp, while Em regarded
her anxiously. "It is recommended that
the eldest daughter take the unimproved
Pennsylvania land. That's you, Grace."
"I won't have it," cried Grace. "I am
going to have the Gothi cottage on tho

wynd, reading, "that the next take the

"Grace lias that! I'm going to have the

"Hut the Western estate is recommend

"And those old marshy Pennsylvania
lands lelt to inc. cried Garcia, angrily.
"That is just ns you and Em can agree.
mteriwjscd Mrs. Chetwynd. "Don't get
into a passion, Garcia."
They all looked at Em. She, rather
than tlie others, seemed quite suited to le
the mispress ot a Western farmhouse; and
it certainly was a nomc, and would ena
ble the owner to marry nicely; John Mel
vin, too, preferred to go West for prac
tice. Em stood silent and pale.
"If Em wants it, she must have if. I
suppose," said Mrs. Chetwynd.
"Yes!" cried Gaicia, "and I have noth
ing I Be doomed to 6 lay and die in this
holel Take it. Em. Of courss vou will."
Em had involuntarilv looked un at
John Melvin. He felt the dilieacv of in-
terferring, but his momentary traze seem
ed to bid her hold her rights. Hut at
Garcia's stormy words she started, and
her patient eyes dilated with pain as 6he
looked at her sister.
No, no, Garcia; it is harder for vou to
stay here than for me. You shall have
the new house and be married. John and
I can wait a while longer.
She looked up at him cheerfully, but
he turned white with bitter disappoint
ment. As for Garcia, she had not even
the grace to Ik; grateful to her sister. She
only exclaimed, pettishly:
"Y aitf I could wait as well as vou. it
there was anything to wait for. I am not
an old maid yet, if you are five years the
les, that is the way they took all her
sacrifices. For Garcia, of course, took the
beautiful, highly cultivated Western
home, and Em was left with the marshes."
Grace and Garcia were married. Neith
er of them offered to assume the care of
their invalid mother, who would certainly
be an invalid all her davs. They consid
ered that Lm s work, without a doubt.
Well, the life at Strawberry Farm was
a little easier after they were gone, cer
tainly; and often, while finding no better
opening, John Melvin and Em came to
think that it might do for a home for
both, though there were already three doc
tors in the neighborhood.
At last they were married.
"I never was lucky, and there's no use
in our waiting until we are both old and
gray for our ship to come in, John," said
Em. "Let us be married, and take what
j comfort we can at Strawberry Farm. Per

and not long ago had a year old heifer
which had her hind leg broken above the

her over the bars, and the broken bone
! projected through the skin several inches.
I I got her into a pen well provided with
j litter, and set the bone as well as the cir
I cumstanccs would permit, and splintered
and bandaged it up, and in six weeks it
j was apparently as well ns ever, with the
exception of a small cnllous at the place
where broken. J he animal may now be

Most of us fritter away a fcroat deal of
time. e are wasteful of the minutes
when avc are 'wasteful of nothing else.
Nothing is easier than to fritter away
time in matters of no use to ourselves or
any on else. The haliit is readily form
ed. It grows ujon us unawures. Keep a
strict account of every hour of your timo
for a single week, setting down correctly
the exact manner in which every hour is
spent, anil tee whether, when you come to
review the record, you do cot "find it full
of admonition and instruction. In this
simple way one can readily understand
the secret of his want of time. llo will
discover that he has given hours to idle
talk, to indolence and to inconsidcraMo
trifles, which have yielded lu'in neither
profit nor pleasure. What is the remedy?
Arrange your work in the order of its
compilative importance. Attend first to
the things which tire essential to be done,
and let the unessentials take their chance
afterward. The difference in the amount i
of work accomplished will be astonishing.
Duty before pleasure. Those who prac
tice this precept have plenty of time for
pleasure, and enjoy far greater satisfac
tion than those who reverse this rule.
For their is great satisfaction to be ob

French justice is swift and certain, b its
the limes. Hie fact that a murder as
committed puts into action all the detec
tive agencies of Fiance.
It is not as here, where, if the victim be
obscure and unknown, a languid effort,
or none at all, is made to unravel the
crime. Here, in case of a murder, the
Btato usually gives iisolf little trouble
about the matter. The affair is looked
over by the police for a day or two, and
if the trail is fresh and does not lead too
far, it may be followed up, and the offen
der arrested. Otherwise not, unless the
victim occupies a very conspicuous posi
tion. In average cases, in order to obtain
detective efficiency, money must be used,
and frcrly. Any citizen of Chic:ig , no
matter how prominent, might bo killed,
and unless the case were a clear one, and
the assassin within easy reach, there
would be no movement of consequence
without the offer of a reward. Sometimes
this reword is offered by corporations, or
municipalities, quite as often by the re
latives and friends of the victim. The
consequence is that wc have more mur
ders, or we have fewer detections in pro
jwrtion to the number of murders, than
any civilized country in Christendom.
Exactly the reverse is the case in France
and England, and probably in other Eu
ropean countries. Detection of crime in
none of these countries rests upon the
amount of the reward offered. Such a
scandalous perversion of the agencies of
justice is unknown. "When the crime of
murder has been committed, say in
France, the state regards the occurrence
as its affair. It holds itself responsible
for the safety of its subjects. "When that
safety has been imperiled the blow strikes
the- state as well as the individual. The
whole jower, the entire wealth of the
state are behind the officials who are de
tailed to work up the case. No man em
ployed in the mission has any hope of a
pecuniary reward in cae of success. He
is animated by no such detestable and
mercenary motive: Success in his case
means promotion, an additional medal,
and increased pay. All the incentives
which spur him on aro honorable, and he
works the more diligently and intelligent
ly in projiortion as he is lifted above de
