about that time, and remembering him
as a good looking, soft-hearted fellow,
she laid her plans with the skill of a
diplomatist, and now that he had come
he was ready to put them into execu
tion. She was charming. Harry himself
could not deny that, and he- took a sort
of delight in watching her. Women
were novelties to him, aud particular

brows, curling her lips, shaking her

in his bluff, hearty way, when the two
ladies came down in marvelous dresses
of white cambric, starched, and ruf

of fashion, and fluttered into their
S laces at the table, like two white
"They dine with their governess,"
said Mrs. Mac.
"And a charming little thing she is,
too," he said, "and it's a great pity that
you do not have her dine with you."
"I think I merit an explanation,
"I have none to give, beyond the fact
that I do not longer need your ser
vices." This was said one morning in Mrs.
MacGregor's beautiful chamber, where
the summer sun was lying in freckled
patches on the velvet carpet, and the
wind just stirring the bells of the
honeysuckle outside, so that they fill
ed the room with their rare fragrance.
."Iteally, Helen,' I don't see why you
are bound to account for your movement-'.
Miss Dale is exceedingly pre
sumptuous to think of such a thing as
demanding an explanation."
Misj Dale, I1U10 aud timid as she
was, turned her queenly little head In
the direction of the haughty Louise,
and said, iu a voice singularly firm
and decisive :
"I am talking with Mrs. MacGregor,
and my business lies solely with her."
"My sister is jight, and for that
same impudence, alone, I will dismiss
you. Here is the amount due you.
The carriage will be ready to convey
you to the depot in an hour," said Mrs.
While this was going on up-stairs,
Harry had been quietly smoking his
cigar on the back piazza below, and he
was all at once very much startled by
the sudden appearance of little Kittie,
who flew out, all tears and anger, her
flaxen curls lying in disorder, ami htr
pretty dress all crampled and soiled.
"Uncle Harry! Don't you think
that I hid in the closet between Aunt
Louise's and mamma's rooms, and I've
heard something dreadful."
"And what may that be?"
"Mamma has sent Miss Dale away,
and Aunt Louise scolded her like ev
erything, and said, after she went out,
that she would give her a lesson that
would keep her from making love to
rich gentlemen; and I'm so sorry, I
don't know what to do; and I'll never
have anybody else."
"Where is she? Where Is Miss
"Packing her trunk, and crying just
as hard as ever she can."
Harry MacGregor hated injustice to
any one, but to use it to this little,
meek-eyed, unproducted girl seemed
criminal, and there was a very danger
ous fire in his eyes as he arose and
went out to the stables.
In an hour the carriage was ready,
the trunk was borne down and fasten
ed up behind, and Miss Dale stepped
"Why, Mr. MacGregor!" she cried,
as she saw him sitting back there, as
unconcerned as though he had been
going for ah ordinary drive.
"Hush, little girl I Never mind
me ;" and James, who was in the se
cret, mounted the box, and drove hur
When they had passed the gate,
Harry caught both the little cold
hands in his own.
"Did you think I would let you go
alone, little girl?"
"I don't know. I am sure you are
verv kind, and "
"Clara, don't talk that way. I could
not help being kind to you, because I
loved you. Ever since I first saw you,
I have loved you in my odd. unculti
vated way, and when I heard that my
sister-in-law had turned you from her
home, I came right here to offer you
mine. I've just bought a house a
cozy, homelike house as you ever saw,
and I want you for its mistress."
"Oh, Mr. MacGregor!"
"If you don't come, I shall have to
shut it up, or rent it."
"I think I will come."
When James opened the door at the
depot, he had a good chance to wonder
at the changeable nature of things;
for, instead of the disconsolate pair he
had shut in, he let out a couple that
might have been heirs to all the hap
piness in the world, and not look more
"I wonder where Harry is?" said
Mrs. Mac, a few hours later, when she
had recovered from her excitement.
"Why, he went away in the carriage
with Miss Dale," said that terrible
Kittie; "and do you believe, I saw
him kiss her just as plain as day."
Had a thunderbolt fallen in their
midst, it could not have caused great
er dismay than this announcement ex
traordinary, but it was well that it
came as it did, or Harry's letter, a few
days later, would have annihilated
As it was, they were prepared for
anything, and therefore read the fol
lowing with martyr-like resignation :
"Dear Sister : I was quite hurt at
the little disturbance between Clara
and yourself, and, therefore, did not
ask you to our wedding.
"Ilowever, now that we are married,
I hope you will not be slow in making
up a friendship. I have purchased
the house on Fifth Avenue, which you
so much admired, and in two months
shall bo at home. We leave this after
noon for Saratoga.

"Well, it was a good chance, and
hard to lose, but I suppose there are
plenty more of them."

Raisin grapes are being planted in
California on a gigantic scale. This
furore is stimulated by the great prof

demand, and the very light work re

is incorporated to introduce raisin cul

Church ! is there within you no Nehe

point of this fervent appeal is said to

Oar City Schools.
One week last Friday closed a very
successful year's work in our City
THE ANNUAL EXAMINATION
consumed all of the last week ia the
higher departments and from one to
three days of it in the lower.
Every department had a written ex
amination of the work compiled dur
ing the jear and it is interesting to see
with what care and -interest many of
the little ones prepared and executed
As you notice the work on up
through the grades you can see the
advance step bv step, both in the work
done and manner of doing it, which
speaks much for the rapidity with
which eur City Schools are approach
ing that thorough grading they have
so long needed. We realize, now that
a good graded school is nut an institu
tion to be created and brought into
complete and perfect working in a
twelve month, but solely a city'e pride
and perfection which can only be ac
complished by steady and careful
working by experience 1 hands, after
years of developing.
We hope the work may continue,
and that eur City Schools may justly
be the pride and chief attraction of
our fast thriving and promising
A few facts gathered from Prof.
Love, will be of interest to our citi
zens. From Prof. Love's report we notice
that during the year eight hundred
scholars were enrolled, an increase of
some one hundred and thirty-five over
last year. The attendance up to April
1st, averaged 522, the largest by over
one hundred and fifty ever our city
The expense of our schools for the
year has been less than $5,500, making
the average expense per capita on
average attendance only 810. We ven
ture there are not a dozen towns in
the United States, the size of Platts
mouth that have run their sshoois on
e small an average expense per capi
ta. Although all the rooms and de
partments were crowded, the year has
passed, entirely free of the usual com
plaints. This speaks well for our
school board, the general management.
and each individual teacher.
During the year our High School De
partment has turned out more well
qualified and successful teachers than
during any two years previous. Many
of our young women and men have
taken advantage of its privileges and
fitted themselves "or activo work and
in every instance so far. Prof. Love
says he has favorable reports from the
districts in which his pupils are teach
ing. This is just what we want, and do
hope our schools will continue te pros
per and do the good work as effectual
ly and thoroughly in the future as iu
the past, and all will be pleased and
many benefitted thereby.

likely soon te be published will give

The Corner Stone of Trlaitj Cathedral.
The corner ".tone of Trinity Cathe
dral, Omaha, was laid Tuesday, May
26th, with imposing ceremonies. A
procession, composed of the Infantry
band, two companies of soldiers, city
council, church vestries, deputies to
the church council, with the bishops
of Minnesota, Texas, Kansas, Colora
do and Nebraska, marching to the
spit, and with hymns and prayer laid
the foundation for the beautiful house
The Corner Stone Hymn, composed
by Rev. II. B. Burgess, was among
those sung. The Annual Council of the
Episcopal church meeting at Omaha
at this time, was chosen as the proper
occasion for this event.
The following is the text of the
hymn above spoken of:
Lord God of Hosts. Thou Mighty Lord,
Who ait in Wff'iest heaven adored.
Fain would we btie thine altar raise,
E iiuleiu ol e vet lifting days.
In loving faith we lay this Stone,
To honor Thee, Lord, alone.
Be Thou our Coruer Stone, and we
Thy Holy temple owned by Thee.
And here when prayers aud praise are heard.
Bless. Lord, each supplicant ith Thy ward ;
Iucrease our hope aud faith in Thee,
Thy loving kindness may we see.
Bless, Lord, each stranger at Thy door ;
Enrich Thy poor with heavenly store :
Let mea ef high and low degree
Dwell here in love and uuity.
So through the age all along
Praise, pral.e to God, shall be ear song :
Let saints on earth with choirs above
Here laud aud praise the Loved of Love.

The Domestic Monthly.
With the arrival of warm weather,
and the probable approach of still
warmer weather, the Domestic
Monthly presents its attractive list of
fashionable, useful, and indispensable
novelties appropriate te the season.
The color plate represents a simple,
tasteful princesse dress, two fabrics
being combined in such a way as to
represent a skirt and a polonaise. Iu
general effect this drapery is peculiar- ''
In the literary department a new
serial entitled "Bertine: an Episode,"
by Ellis Conway, is begun. Among
the other authors represented by con
tributions in prose or verse, are lira.

The very popular feature of a pr'ze
competition regarding a choice of pat
terns is continued, the successful com
petitors for the May list being an
nounced, and the new feature of mon
ey prizes for the June competition be
i g introduced.
It may be novelty, but it is not al
ways symmetry of dress that is ob
tained by copying from periods. Spe
cialties are hardly ever successful for
any length of time; hence a compre
hensive idea of what is becoming and
appropriate is far m-re useful than a
facility 111 copying styb-s which soon
lieoiiuie riioncMMious if not conspicu

ties may pass for medieval fancies,"
may possibly be the excuse for many a

son of beini;. but good taste will never
approve of fancies used for such a pur
pose. From the Domestic Monthly
Among the miscellai.eous points of
fashion which may be given here,
mention is made of lace sleeves, which
may be had in leading houses, already
made, to accompany dresses that are
trimmed with lace. The sleeves of
dresses are made extremely tight, and
are flaring at the lop and raised up
like the sleeves in gentlemen's coats.
