The Wedding Pes-
One mornlnr, fifty yenrs ner
When apple tree9 were whito with snow
Of frnjrrant blosmms, and the nir
Was sjKd!-bfiind with the perfume rare-
Upon 11 farm-horse, larif md lon,
And lnzy, with it don hie Lad,
A fun-brown youth nnd maid were SCO A
Jogging along- the wiiuling road.
Pine were the nrehos of the skies.
But bluer vere that maiden's eves!
Tho dew- lropa on the rnss w re bright,
' Hut brighter was tho lorinjr liifht
That pparkled neHth each lonir-friijrod liT
Whero those bright eyes of Lluo wt-ro bid;
Adown tho shoulders, brown an 1 bare.
Killed the soft waves of poldon hair.
Where, almost strangled with tho spray,
Tho sun, a willing' sufferer, lay.
It whs the f iiirest sight, I ween.
That the young man had ever seen:
And with his features i.I! al )r.
The happy follow 1. 1 1 her s
And she, without tho least surprise.
It oked on him with thos henvenly c.VCS
Saw undernostli that shailo of tan
Tho tm'idsome features of a in in.
And with n Joy but rarely known
She drew that doar faec ti) her own.
And by that bridal bonnet hid
I cannot tell you what sac did.
P- on they ride, until among
The new-born leaves wirh dew-drops hung,
Tho parsonage, arrived in white.
Peers out a more than welcome M'fct.
Then, with a cloud upon his face,
"What shall we do," he turned to say,
'Should ho refuse to take his pay
From what is in tho pillow-case?"
And glnneing down, his eyes surveyed
Tho pillow-easo before him laid.
Whose contents renehin-T to its hem,
Misbt purchase endless joys lor tbeui.
Tho maiden answers: '-Lot us wait:
To borrow trouble whore's the need?
Then at the parson's qu-'nking gate
Halted the more than willing steed,
llown from his horse the bi-idesrr.Kiin fcpruirjr;
The latchess gate behind hi 111 swung;
Tho knocker of that startled door.
Struck as it never was before,
Bro urht the whole household, pile with fright;
And there, with blushes on his cheek,
So bashful he could hardly speak,
Tbs farmer met their wondering sight.
The groom goes In, his errand tcll,
A-id as the pars'm nods, he leans
Far o'er the window sill, and yells,
"Come in I Ho savs he'll take the beans!"
Oh.how she Jumped ! With one glad bound
Sho and the bean-bag reached tho grouutl.
Then, clasping with each .'.impled arm
The precious product of tho farm,
Sho bears it through tho open door.
And down upon the parlor floor.
Dumps the best beans vines ever bore.
Ah 1 happy were their songs that day,
AVhen man and wife they rode away.
Hut happier this chorus sti.l
Wbi h echoed through thoi-o woodland scenes:
"God bless the priest of Watsonvil'Cl
God bless tho man whi took the beans!"

THE STOKY OP A SCSEEN.
BY HELEN FORREST GRAVES.
'Tho level beams of the mellow May
sunset were revealing every flaw and
crack in the cheap papering which cov
ered tho walls of tho little garret room
where Mabel Moore sat busily at her
sewing-machine, and a single pot of
blue velvet pansies in the high, narrow
window made a spot of color for poor
Mrs. Moore's weary eyes to rest upon,
as she toiled at the iloss-silk embroidery
which was her whole occupation.
Tho room was small and scantily fur
Dished, but thero was within its walls
one relic of vanished tlaj'S a black
satin screen, mounted on a standard of
gilded bamboo, and painted in deep
rich oil-colors, with a scarlet flamingo
floating upward against a background
of reeds and grasses, whila in tho dis
tance flamed a stormy sunset sky.
"Mamma did it herself, when sho
was a girl at boarding-school," said
Mabel Mooro to those who sometimes
asked the history of this one remaining
token of luxury. "Wa have kept it
through everything. 1 would not part
with it for its weight in gold."
And then she would laughingly tell
the tale of how half a dozen collectors
of antiques and esthetic furniture had,
at different times, endeavored to pur
chase the old screen.
"One man wanted to buy it with a
pair of tongs and a brass coal-scuttle,"
eaidshe; '"another one offered a broken
set of Thackeray's novels and a fender;
and a third bargained with a tete-a-tete
set of china, and a broken-nosed statue
For Mabel was a bright -eyed, sweet
faced girl, who had a very keen sense
of the ridiculous, and lived through
the hard realities of her life with the
quiet fortitude of an inborn heroine.
But after all, the second-hand deal
ers were nothing in resolution aud per
sistence as compared with Miss Ann
Azalea Harper, the daughter of the
landlord frotn whose leaky' and ba.lly
drained promises they had removed a
few weeks previously. Miss Ann Aza
lea had a very fair idea of brieT-a-brac
treasures, an I sho had cast her lino
eyes upon t'ds very scre?n.
'It's worth a deal of money," said
Ann Azalea to herself. "And it was
only this morning that Aunt Ilepsy was
wishing for just such an old-fashioned
Now Aunt Ilepsy was a rich old maid,
shrewd, crusty, elderly, and full of dis
trust of all the smooth-tongued rela
tives whoso professions of love and re
spect were so extreme.
A screen?" said Aunt Ilepsy. "Yes,
I want a screen."
"I'll paint you one, dear aunt," said
Much of a screen yo)i could paint!"
said the old la!y, disdainfully.
"I improved a good deal at boarding
school," said Ann Azalea, meekly.
And I'll stretch it upon an antique
bamboo rack; and really I think it will
"don't," said Aunt Ilepsy.
"May I try. dear annt?"
"Yes," said the old lady, grud-nnf-ly.
"you may fy."
And Ann Azalea, who had already
in her mind apiropri ited J r Mrs.
Moore's antique ser.fi), set diligently
about the work of getting possession of
"You owe ni)- pa ten dollars of rent,"
said Ann Azalea, spitefully, as she sat
panting for bra th iu th little garret
room, idler having toil;d up the three
long and narrow flights of stairs.
You can't deny it."
"It is attito true", acknowledged
meek Mrs. Moore, who, in her daugh
ter's absence was absolutely defence
less: "but "
"You ought to be ashamod to owe so
mu. h money as that," said Ann Aza
lea. "We have been very unfortunate, of
lat '," said Mrs. Moore. "But we fully
intend to repay all of our indebtedness
as soon as my daughter "
"Oli, that's all nonsense!" brusquely
interrupted Ann Azalea. "Pa ought
to have put an execution that's what
he oii'zht to have done!"
Poor Mrs. Moore shuddered.
"An I it ain't too late now," added
the young lady, ignoring the code and
all its provisions.
Oil. Miss Harper!"
'But we don'l want to be exorbitant,"
graciously went on Ann Azalea. "So,
sooner than bo at tiio expense of a law
suit, I'll take some trillo or other in
pay. Ti at screen, for iustauc." with
her greedy eye- iixed 0:1 the pictured
flight of the scarlet flamingo. "Ten
dollars is a deal of money, an 1 tho
screen is an old-style thing, but I
wouldn't mind calling things even,
just to case your conscience, if "
"I couldn't oh, I couldn't!" cried
I.Irs. Moore, the tears coming into her
eyes. "It was work I did as a girl.
My own poor mother sketeiie 1 in liio
green rushes aud grass with her own
pencil, and and if any one is to have
it, it is already promised to an old fam
ily friend, who is to pay twenty-live
dollars for it."
"Very well," said Miss Harper, ris
ing, with an ominous toss of her head.
"Then, if you really mean to swindle
"If you really mean to swindle us,"
severely repeated Ann Azalea, "I may
as well stop in at the constable's on my
way back and put on the distraint at
Mrs. Moore clasped her thin hands
in a sort of nervous horror.
If poor Mabel, who had gono out so
buoyantly to carry home her little par
cel of finished work, should return and
find the minions of tho law iu posses
sion! "I am a sellish creature," she told
herself, "to prefer my own inclination
to dear May's happiness!"
And so she told Ann Azalea, ith a
burst of tears, that the screen should bo
"I will send it to j-ou in tho even
ing," said she, piteously.
"If you'll just wrap a bit of brown
paper around it, I'll take it now," sug
gested Miss Harper, who believed firm
ly in the ancient adao of tho "bird in
the haud being worth two in tho bush."
And so the scarlet flamingo was car
ried away in the triumphant arms of
Miss Ann Azalea Harper.
"After all," soliloquized she, "I go.t it
for absolutely nothing. For pa said the
old mahogany bookcase he took off:
them was worth a third more than the
rent they owed; and any one but a
fool like that whimpering little Mrs.
Moore would have known it perfectly
well. And I'm sure it'll suit Aunt
Ilepsy to a T!"
While poor Mrs. Moore, sobbing bit
terly before the empty place where her
beloved screen had stood, felt as if all
the sweet associations of her early
youth had been wrenched away.
"Mother dear mother! why are you
crying?" questioned Mabel, hurrying
into tho room. "Is your neuralgic
headache worse? Oh, mother! where
is the old screen? I have brought
Miss Milman to see 3"ou about it. She
says she will give j'ou thirty dollars
for it, if"
"I have sold it," said Mrs. Moore;
"for ten dollars. To our landlord's
daughter. Or rather I have let her
take it away in payment for tho balance
of the rent we owed them."
"Sho has deceived you mother!"
cried Mabel, coloring up with honest
indignation. "YVe owed her not a
single cent! Oil, dear mother, if I had
only been at home!"
Miss Milman, a stout, short, grizzle
headed lady, stood still in the centre of
the room, looking sharply about iier.
'Don't fret, Alice Moore," said she.
"Tears never yet did any good. You
may depend upon it, this woman's
cruel deceit will yet recoil upon her
own head. What is your landlord's
Harper," said Mrs. More. "Ebe
"Oh!" said Miss Milman.
And then she went away.
I think she grows more eccentric
every day," said May, looking after the
retreating figure of the stout lady.
"Rich people have a right to ba ec
centric if they please." sighed Mrs.
More, still looking at the empty place
where the screen had once stood.
'Dear Aunt Ilepsy," said Ann Aza
lea, radiantly, "I've come to wish you
many happy returns of your birthday.
Ami here's a little present, tho satin
screen I promised you."
"Eh?" said Aunt Hepsy.
"My own work," said Ann Azalea.
"And I do so hope you'll like it."
"Humph!" 1-o iiin.Mite I t!ie old lady.
"I've worked day and niht to get it
finished," sai l Ann Azalea, fervently.
"Ann Azalea," said the old lady,
stid lenly becoming inspired with some
degree of animation, "where tlo you
expect to go to when yon die?"
Dear Aunt," said Ann Azalea, "I
don't i;i the least understand you!"
"Because you are telling a perfect
tissue of lies, each one more outrageous
than the other," said this painfully
frank old la ly. "The screen isn't your
own work at all. The satin was paint
ed by an old sc .oo'-t'i iead of mine, lif
ty oad years ago. You cheated her out
of it, the day before yesterday, by a
regular piece of swindling that would
have disgraced a mock auctioneer.
And now you may go and cany it back
to her Mrs. Moore, No. 7 Lilac Court
with my compliments. And, Anu Aza
lea" "Yes, aunt," said the dejected youug
"You needn't trouble to come back
herj again. If I adopt an heiress it
must be some ono who is pure, and
good, and truthful not such a one as
you! And I'm rather disposed to think
that it shall be Mabel Moore."
And so Miss Ann Azalea Harper's
grand scheme resulted iu utter failure.
The screen was borne iguominiously
back, aud Mabel Moore is now her
aunt's adopted darling. And Papa
Harper, instead of tenderly consoling
his daughter, sa3'S gruffly:
"ItVall your own fault!"
Photographs in Natural Colors
The anuoiiiicemint is again made
that a process has l;e,n discovered for
taking photographs possessing all tho
brilliancy anil delicacy of the natural
colors, and an exhibition of pictures
thus naturally colored has just been
held in London. According to the re
ports, the colors are produced by the
action of light alone in the catnera.and
owe nothing whatever to the artists
brush. In the photographs exhibited,
the Coloring appeared to be quite true
to nature, and delicate tones and shad. -s
were clear to the view. The flesh tint
was exact to life, and full justice was
done to gorgeous lvgtmentals. The
protruded' tongue of a dog i ti one of
the photographs possessed the exact
color of nature. S mm of the guests,
says the English Mechanic, inspecting
this collection, and not fully acquainted
with the character of the latest inven
tion, took it for grafted that the work
was done bv skilful, artistic hands on
iv ry and other material, and co.tld
scarcely believe their e3'cs when in
formed that the color, as much as the
form and outliue, was produced by tho
light of da-. Careful investigation,
however, would then shqw that human
hanuieraft was not in it; for there were
touches and effects which Nature's pen
cil of light could alone accomplish.
The contention is that photographs col
ored by "arlists, however clever, must
be more or less "monotonous, hard,
untrue to Nature, and to the originals."
The process was discovered, it is
said, by a French scientist, but has
since undergone improvement by the
proprietor of the process in England.
If the new sj-stem proves an unquali
fied success, the reward will not have
been reaped without much labor in tho
past, for numerous attempts have been
made to induce the sun-pencil to fix
colors in the picture it draws in the
camera; but chemical and mechanical
difficulties have stood in tho way. In
the new process colors are said not on
ly to be faithfulry produced, but pro
tected from the action of light by being
passed through a boiling solution, of
which gelatine forms the principal in
gredient, and that some of tho photo
graphs so treated have been exposed
for months to the sun without being in
anywise affected by the ordeal. Un
fortunately the process is yet unknown,
as it is likely to be for some time to
come. Manufacturer and lluilder.
A Story of Vaccination.
Some members of a certain noble
English household were desire I to sub
mit to revaccinatiou. The lymph was
to be extracted from the arm of the in
fant son of the house. All underwent
the process quietly enough, until it
came to the cook's turn, a brawny
Scotch woman, who positively refused
on tho ground that "no English bloo 1
should enter her veins." After m ic!i
expostulation, she was vaccinated with
lymph taken direct from a Scotch calf.
Her arm alone took among all t'io-;c
revaccinated, and with much triumph
she asserts the fact as showing the su
periority of a "wen Scotch beauiic"
over a noble English lord.

On Monday afternoon the two ii;:..
cents drove up to Brown's place wiih
a dilapidated vehicle drawn by a horse
that looked as though he bad not seen
a euriyeoiub for twenty years. The
animal was ligge . in a harness impro
visted from discarded clotheslines, and
was so bespattered with mud that his
color was scarcely distinguishable.
Elliott and Cleary alighted, and after
drawing a cocktail, exercised their
muscles at a game of quoits.
While the players were tossing the
rings, Brown, who is a fancier of hors
es, took the size of the beast in rags,
and with a jeer remarked, "What are
you going to do with that?" "Why
Wiere's nothin' ails that boss," said El
liott ; "I'm going to sell him." "Tim
whole liggin horse, wagon and clothes
line, won't bring a live-dollar note,"
Brown said, with another laugh, "Well
that's where you make a mistake," re
plied Elliott, as be tossed a ringer and
won the drinks. "You can't buy him
for a hundred. I tell you what I will
do I'll bet you 100 he can go in
three minutes."' "Get out!" said Brown.
But when Elliott produced a roll of
bank notes the innkeeper saw the
challenge was seriously made, and
eagerly took the btt.
'The trio then jumped into the wag
i and drove over to Point Breeze,
iollowed by quite a party. Cleary was
made the stakeholder. Brown was in
high glee, and remarked, "Ain't this a
puddin'," as Elliott took the reins and
drove the animal on the track. The
horse was drawn up at the starting
point, and at the word ' Go" his ears
went up like a shot, and off he went
in good sty le, to the astonishment of
Brown, who knew before tl.e first
quarter was reached that Le bad been

thieves had been at work, but, although
I hunted the surrounding country, I
