And reached my hnnd in ecstacy
To touch her saining hair.

In sheer nfTripht I screamol, "Alas!

And lietsey Jane Just then nu-o.ee.
And pierced me with her eve.

" Harvey Mills has failed ! " said Mrs.
.Smithson, one chilly spring evening,
as she ran in to sue her next door
neighbor and intimate friend, Airs,
.lames. " My husband just eame home,
and he says that what we supposed to
be a rumor only, is a sad fact; the as
signment was made yesterday. I threw
on a shawl ami ran over to tell you.
They are to keep the house under some
sort of an arrangement, but they have
discharged all their servants, and what
in the world the Miilscs will do, Mrs.

and Miss Helena, with her dainty ways
and refined bringing up. is more
than I know;1' and pretty, shallow Mrs.
Sntilhson looked at her nerve-loving
friend and neighbor with the air of an
epicure regarding some favorite dish.
" I heard all about it hut evening,"
said Mrs. James, adjusting the pink
ribbon at the throat of her black silk
dinner-dress "and this morning I pre

drive over and see how they were get

you will be surprised when 1 tell you
that, although 1 expected to lind the
family in great confusion ami distress, I
never saw them in such a comfortable
way, and in such good spirits. The
worst was over, of course, and they had
all settled into the new order of thing-;

Mis. Mills, was sitting, as calm as yon

she ate her crisp toast and sipped hot
Our comfortable and cozy appear
ance is all due to Helena, said she.
That dear child has taken the helm. I
never dreamed she had so much execu
tive abilty. We were quite broken
down at first, but she made her father
go over all the details of his business
with her, and they found that by dis
posing of Helena's grand i.mo, the
paintings and slabs, and costly bric-a-brac
her father had always indulged
Jier in buying, we could pay dollar lor

husband's old friend, Mr. Bartlett, who
keeps the art store, 3011 know, and
who4s always taken a great interest
in Helena, bought baek thc paintings,
statuary, vases, etc., at a small dis
count, and Barker, who sold us the
piano a car ago or so, and who is an
other old friend, ami Knew, of course,
jusl how we wcrcsitiiated, took it back,
deducting only twenty-live dollars.

that, I drew my call to a c'oso, and ran
down into my cousin's kitchen to sue
her dainty daughter there. And what
do you think? I found that g.rl at the
sink, with her sleeves rolled up, an im

" Washing a A-c7c?" repeated Mrs.
Smithson, holding up both her soft,
white hands in unmeasured astonish
ment. "Yes, Mrs. Smithson, washing a
great,- blaek. greasy- iron kettle that
meat had been" boiled in. ami that had
been left unwashed and gummy when
the cook left. And, do you know? .-he
was laughing over it ail" and saying to
her youngest, brother, who stood near
by, that .she really liked it. for she now
felt she was making her.-elf useful."
"The idea! Liking to wash kettles:"
and the two line ladies looked at each
other in open-eyed wonder.
"It seems tome as if Helena Mills
was trying to make thc best of her
father s altered fortunes, and was sim
ply doing her duty in the premises,"
spoke Miss Carlton, Ida James's new
drawing teacher, who was that evening

the opposite &ido of the center-table.
She spoke earnestly and yet in amode-t
way, and it being tho vogue in New
City just then to patronize Mi.ss Carl
ton, the pretty and accomplished gradu
ate from Vassar. the two ladies looked
at her amiably, and she went on:
"Somebody- must wash the kettles,
and it is always best, when one has a
-isagrceablc duty to perform, to do it
fflot only at once, but cheerfully."
"Yes. perhaps," replied Mrs. Smith
eon, "but how could a -young girl of
real tiatire refinement'' (both" sides of
Hie Smithson family were of the "old
-stock") "take so kindly to washing
viots and kettles? The fact of it is. pe
file have been mistaken inllelenaMills.
She never possessed that innate gentili
ty she has had credit for. But ' everv
one finds their level sooner or latci
These two women having thus sum
marily disposed of Helena Mills socially,
they repeated their belief that the Jove
iy and dutiful young girl had now
lound her proper level over and over in
their set until it was the common talk
;n New City. Miss Carlton, in her
round of professional calls anion"- the
co-called elite, was cntert lined inncar
iy every household with the information
that Helena Mills had given up her
studies even, and gone into the kitchen
to work "and, if you'll believe it, she
likes it.'" Then would follow rellcc
tions upon the natural ability -and bias
of mind of a young woman who vW:is
"fond of washing dishes."
This sensible, accomplished little
drawing teacher was the only one to be
found, "who miusled in the "upper cir
cles" of New City, who said : a word
either in praise or defense -of Helena
Mills' new vocation. Miss Carlton al
ways and everywhere protested that the
young girl's course vas not only praise
worthy, but beautiful. She mainta'ned
that every woman, young or o'd, high
or low, -who took upon herself the laljor
of elevating the much-abused as well as
despised vocation of housework upon

Miss Carlton's friends all listened and
laughed, and then went on with their
serseless and malicious tirade. She
was heartily glad when her engage
ments in New City wc-e ended, and she
was oblio-ed. to move in such "select
society, "whose ideas were always a

Mrs. Dr. Forbes, ncc Miss Carlton,
had heard very little about N.CW City
society for five years. Rut having occa

cars lately she treated herself to a little
gossipy chat with the conductor, whom

"There is no particular news, Mrs".

" Her father is now in business again
for himself; and employs more men
than ever. Her mother, who had been
an invalid for years was forced by
Helena's example" to try and exert her
self .so as to share her Slaughter's bur
den to some extent. As a result of the
new, active life she has followed, she
lost all her ailments, and is now a hap
py, hearty, healthy woman. Helena's
brothers have grown up to be line,
manly, helpful fellows, and the whole
family are better off every way than
ever before. As tilings were going on
before Mr. Mills' failure, the whole
family were in danger of being spoiled
by too much luxury.
"There was a great deal of talk at
iirst among the big-bugs about Helena's
pots and kettles.1 and they used to say
she has found her true 'level.' I al
ways thought there was a spice of nial
ico'in their talk, for the gins of her set
envied her beauty and accomplish
ments. I am rather fond of telling
them now that Helena Mills has found
her 'level' in the richest, most intlucn-
i tial, and just the best family in New

Heal Estate in New York.
A recent New York letter says: The
three costly hu'ddingon Fifth Avenue,
for Mr. Vanderbilt ami two of his sons,
are approaching completion. The
double building for Vanderbilt. Sr., at
Fifty-lirst Street, is a good piece ol
architecture, but would be better if the
building were a story higher. It looks
rather squat in proportion to the
ground covered. The material is the
same brown stone that is used in nearly
all the buildings on the avenue. It does
I not wear so wen as some outer hiiii oi
i stone, but there is none el.se that looks

J homc of one of thc jm,i,jrs. it s not
so lur,re ti10 1)alerlI!li mansion, but it
is more ambitious in architecture and
may be called more ornate. The angles
are" very numerous and the whole struc
ture mure showy. The material used
is a sort of gray limestone, a novelty in
stylish buildings in New York. It is
not handsome, but it is different from
what is seen in other buildings and that
may make up for lack of good looks.
Still further up, at the corner of Fifty
seventh Street, the most stylish of the
Vanderbilt houses has risen to the roof
and is now eloscd in. It looks better
than cither of the others. The general
design is neat as well as elaborate, and
the etleet is pleasing. In this house tie
mater'al is brick and light colored
stone, in about equal proportions.
There is no suggestion of bareness any
where", nor of overloading with fancy
work, either. It will take longer to
finish the inside of each of the Vander
bilt mansions than it has taken to build
the outside. Probably in a year from
now the three will be ready to occupy.
You may now walk up the avenue all
tho way to the park and find hardly one
vacant space. Everything is built up,
and symmetrical rows of brown stone
fronts line tho way on both sides. A
man want'ng to buy must pay at least
one million dollars for a full
sized house well flushed and in
good order. 1). O. Mills, the California
millionaire, paid something aliout that
figure, I believe, for the mansion he
bought on the avenue some time ago.
Mr. Mills seems to have faith in New
York real estate. His latest purchase,
down in Broad Street, is the largest
made here in several 3 ears. An in
vestment of nearly $1,.")U0.0!)0 is worth
noting. The property bought by Mr.
Mills runs from the Dreel Building, at
the corner of Wall Street, down to Ex
change Place, the length of an ordinary
block, and it includes, besides, one lot
on Wall Street, east of the Drexel, so
that entrances may be had on both sides
of that building. Tho eaet price paid
for the property is understood to be
SI. 100. OK). The cost' of building on it
will probablvbenl least i,000. 0U0 more.

business is done 011 the sidewalk. All
the brokers occupying offices on thc
property bought by Mr. Mills lfavc
received notice to vacate on the 1st
of May. The notice has caused a great
scramble for other offices in the same
neighborhood, and sent rents up enor
mously. The rents of the vacant offices
in the Drexel Building went up fifty per
cent, an hour after the notice was
served. It is in this building that the
business of Drexel. Morgan & Co., and
Morton. Bliss it Co. is carried on.
The location is just one block from
Trinity church. It was on the opposite
corner that George Washington was in
augurated President of the United
States. But Wall Street is a mighty
different place now to what it was then.
A Xevr Illuminating Fluid
Highly- interesting experiments with
a newly -discovered mineral essence
took place a few cvonings ago at the
laboratory of the eminent Parisian an
alytical chemist, M. Wucrtz, in the
presence of several members of the
Academic des Sciences. Having filled
a lamp with the linuid in question, and
ignited the wick, M. Kordig, the dis
coverer of the essence, tossed the
lighted lamp up against tho ceiling,
besprinkling the bytanders as well iis
himself with the flaming fluid, which,
however, to the astonishment of all
presclit, proved utterly devoid of
heat or burning capacity. He then
soaked his pocket-handkerchief in the
essence, and set it on lire: the essence
burnt itself out, but the handkerchief
remained uninjured, as did his hat after
subjection to a similar trial. Then
MM. Wuertz, Dumas and Frlcdel
plunged their hands into a pan filled
with the barning liquid, withdrawing
them with lingers all alight, yke so
many thick jets of gas. They expe
rienced ho sensation ot heat whatsoever
upon the skin surface thus apparently
in a state of active combustion. Other
experiments followed of an equally
wonderful nature, conclusively demon-

its special physical characteristics seems
to be that it is a thin and colorless oil,

discoverer proposes to adapt it to gen

its chief recommendation being; abso
lute harmlessness. for it is altogether J
incapab'e of exploding, and may be

delicate textile fabric without the least
risk of igniting the substance. Londcn
Good manners. That is a homely,
old-fashioned term. Wi rarely ever
hear it now. Young people arc taught
tt.-le, address, how to bow elegantly
and enter a drawing-room gracefully,
often to the neglect of their manners.
From infancy they are allowed to be
on such familiar terms wun ineir pa
position are not pcrceiveu oy uieui,
and they w'.ll carelessly or rudely ac
cost a famous judge or a learned pro
fessor, as if he were a playmate. The
veneration for ae, so prevalent in
some cistern nations ami frequently
inculcated in the Bible, is, in this age
and country, almost unknown.
Atmcals you will often lind that the
chihl ren are helped first; then the
older members of thc family, and at
length the aged father or mother, who
has waited all this time in a silent
meekness and submission pitiful to be

that they arc of the greatest impor
tance. They become impatient and
clamorous. Seltishness, irreverence,
boldness and a disregard for the
opinions, feelings and rights of others
If you call upon a friend, her little
boy or girl will perhaps rush into the
parlor and, heedless of your presence,
interrupt the conversation with a child
ish ciuery or complaint, while thc moth
er turns from you to satisfy or console
her darling, even though she breaks off
your sentence in thc midst. I have
seen a girl of fourteen go before an
elderly lady into a street car and take
the only vacant scat. 1 have been
mortified to -ce boys and girls possess
themselves of every easy chair in a
room, leaving their elders to occupy the
more hard and unpleasant ones. They
were not so much to be blamed for this
as pitied. Their parents had neglected
to train them to feelings aud habits of
reverence and respect.
Not long since i saw a party of four
seated in a street car. They were an
elderly lady, two young ladies and a
young gentleman." It was evidently a
mother, son, daughter and her female
friend. When they left the car thc
young man assisted his sifter and her
friend to alight and walked awav with
them, chatting and laughing, while the .
mother w:is allowed to get her-elt

If instances like these wero rare I

cur frequently and in small towns as
well as largo ones. It. is probably a
result of tho reaction that has taken
place from thc strict discipline and
severity of the past. A sail and bitter
memory of the privations and punish
which their own early days
were darkened induces many parents of
to-day to indulge their children to an
extreme and unwise degree; to put
upon them no restra'nt not absolutely
I have seen a mother, who in child
hood was forbidden sugar in any form,
place thc sugar-bowl before her little
one of three years, saying: "There,
darling, cat all" that you want." An
other, whose little plate was supplied
with food utterly unpalatable to her,
.and which, in obedience to the com
mand of a stern father, she was com
pelled to swallow, though she ran out
and ejected it immediately after, al
ways consulted ner cinuiren, even in
infancy, respecting their diet. " hat
would you luce to eat, my dear.-' w ill
you have s-alloped oysters, or a piece
of cake or mince pie?" Hie poor little
thing, of course, could not decide judi
ciously, and, instead of being fed and
strengthened with plain, simple food
like oat-mcal. milk, beef and fruit, its
appetite was perverted and digestion
impaired uy improper delicacies. This
is only one way in which a lack of judi
cious training and restraint is illustrat
ed. The boys aud girls of fifty y'ears
ago used, at least in the little towns
aud villages of New England, to bow
and curtsy to every one they met in
the street." Now they- not seldom pass
their elders with a bold stare and loud,
"Hallo! old boy!"
Wo arc sometimes told to be patient:
that as they grow older they will gradu
ally lay aside their rude and disrespect
ful ways. Probably; or nt least they
will acquire more or less of tact anil dis
cernment to perceive that polite man
ners and kind attentions to all arc more
politic. But these will be so superficial
as to be easily penetrated by an acute
observer. Gentleness, kindness. a
thoughtful consideration for others ami
res'ieet and reverence for superiors,
should be cultivated in the child, else ;
we may look in vain lor ineir presence
in the adult, except as thev arc assum
ed for effect to gain some specific: or
selfish end. Some of the time now
spent in our schools would be more
profitably employed . in training pupils,
not only in industrial acts, but in good
morals and good manners. E. A.

"The Tale of a Tub."
Since the days of Dean Swift there
have been many tales of a tub which
Irfck the vivacity of his genius, but
which have had very much to do with
the commonplace affairs and practical
welfare of humanity. Tubs are an in
stitution. The Monday wash-day al
most deserves enumeration in thc calen
dars of the saints. Perhaps it is next
to Sunday, because cleanliness is next
to godliness. It is a vessel of honor or
dishonor in every household. This en
tire laundry business has very much to
do with the condition of families and
with the public health. It is a very
important question how far a system of
public laundry can be made to super
sede thc house system of washing. Of
course, it cannotbe practicable in very
scattered communities. Then the risk
of disseminating contagions by reason
of foul, unwashed garments is worthy
of Untight in a sanitary aspect. The

source of peril to manv families. The

General Gordon was severely wound
ed four times in one battle and within
an hour, aud lived to light again; and
j this is only a specimen of the singular
good luck that attended some in mi. In
1801 a Michigan cavalryman named
Drake was out foraging in the Shenan
doah Valley in company with a com
rade named Cooper. Cooper was in a
smoke-house after meat and Drake was
on guard at the door wiien thirteen
Confederates suddenly appeared. They
were mounted, and advanced at a gal
lop, part of them firing as they rode up.
One bullet found a suitable opening m
thc stone wall of the smoke-house :.nd
Hew in and killed Cooper dead in his
tracks. Drake was standing beside his
horse, and his saddle was hit by three
bullets, one of .which glanced through
his hat. As soon as the trooper could
realize what liar happened he swung
himself into saddle and dashed at the
circle around him. The moment he
happened in view ho was a target for
carbine and pistol. His horse made a
rush at the line, but was driven
ba-k. Followed by Cooper's horse
he galloped anhind and across a circle
not over one hundred feet across, all the
time under a steady lire by the Confed
erates. This lire was soon returned by
Drake, who fired away seven cartridges
and then drew his saber. His seven
bullets, as afterwards vouched for,
killed two men, wounded two more,
and killed one horse. His fire broke
the circle and he got out of it, but for
thirty rods, as he made off. he was ex
posed to the fire of nine or ten men.
Cooper's horse was killed in the circle,
while Drake's was hit no less than nine
times and yet not disabled. As for the
rider, his comrades, on his return to
camp, counted up a record of a truly
miraculous escape. Three bullets
struck his scabbard, two his hat, four
went through his clothing, one burned
his cheek, one raked his knee, ami two
hit his left boot. While one single bul
let killed the one trooper, the other had
sixteen fired point-blank at liim and yet
did not lose a drop of blood. Cooper's

Some Yankee Storic?.
They tell some' odd stories down in
Eastern Massachusetts. One of them is
about a " hired man" who came home
one day with his oxen pulling along the
tongue of a hay-cart. He looked around
astonished when his attcnt'on was
called to it, and had to go back half a
mile where the hay-load was left when
the tongue came out and he didn't
know it. A little girl, being given 10
great inaccuracy of s
way of warning, the
statement, had, bv
storv of Ananias
and Sapphira read to her. When it
was done she said: " That s'.ory is a lie,
mamma, for I've told lots and lots of
lies and ain't dead yet." A man went
into a rum shop, and having had a
quart of rum put into his jug was about
to leave without paying for it. Rather
than let him have it the bar-kecper
- -- -.'.
poured it back. " Be sure and take
only a quart." said the other, for I've
got a quart in there already." The fel
low took his jug away with him. The
other quart was water, and the turn
was mixed with it all right for drinking.
The man got a pint of fiim free and the
bar-keeper .poured a pint of rum back
into the barrel; his other customers had
to pay for it, while he lost nothing.

MoJ?m .Mills and 3Iillinr.
The modern flouring mill
is a huge
structure, employing many men, and
the wheat is turned into Hour by the
freight-train load daily. One ot the
in nster mills in Minneapolis, Minn.,
covers an area of 30 by M) feet, and is
seven stories in height. Its capacity is
-l,'J' 0 barieis daily, which requires
about ".'0,00 beshels of wheat, or fifty
car-loads, to keep the mill in operation.
It does not depend upon the old-fashioned
burr iiiill-stonei to convert tho
wiieat hit-. Hour, but the process of
manufacture is to first run the wheat
through a brushing machine, the old
fashioned smut machine having been
discarded. After the wheat has been
cleansed by running through the brush
machine it is run through corrugated
iron rollers, u h:ch split the crease of
the beiry open, thus liberating the dust
which lies in the create, so that it can be
removed by bulling. A very small
percentage of low giade flour is
made during this first reduction. The
I grain then pastes thiough a process
I Technically known as a scalping iceU to
I remove the dirt ami Hour, after which
it pa-ses through a second set 01 cor
rugated rollers, by which it is further
broken; then it is passed through a sec
ond reel, which removes the Hour and
middlings. This operation is repeated
uccesshely until the Hour portion of
the berry is entirely removed from the
bran, the necessary separations being
made after each reduction, sometimes
reqti'ring live or six. 'J he middlings
from the several operations are reduced
to Hour, after being run through the
purifiers by successive redu -tions, on
smooth iron or porcelain rollers. One
of the principal objects sought by this
system of gr tiding is to avoid all bruis
ing of the grain: another, to extract all
the dirt from the cie.iso of the berry,
aud a third to thoroughly free the bran
from the. four in order to obtain as
large a yield as po'sible.
'1 here are in Minneapolis twenty
e'ght of the-e h ige merchant mills,
making it the largest Hour manufact
uring place in the world, and its prod

Eastern or Middle States are small and
unpretentious concerns, only useful in
grinding provender for the fanners
of the neighborhood for the purpose of
feeding their horses, stock and swine.
And even now they are forced to com

Northwest which make a specialty of
grinding feed b. the car-load and .-end.
ing it to an Eastern market. The mil
ler of "ancient times, who used to be
regarded as an important factor of so
ciety, is nearly obsolete, and the time
is not far distant when he and his toll

the flax -spinning wheel, the haudloom
and the reaping sickle.
Babies show an early appreciation ol
rhuhm. They rejoice in measured
noise, whether it takes the form of
words, music or the jingle of a bunch
of kevs. In the way ot' poetry we are
afraid they must be "admitted to have a
perverse preference for what goes by
thc name of sing-song. It will be a
long time before the in'antilc publicare
brought round to Walt Whitman's views
on versification. For the rest, they are
not very severe critics. Thc small
ancient Roman asked for nothing better
than the song of his nurse:

This two-line lullaby constitutes one
of the few. but sufficient, proofs which
have come down to us of tho existence
among the people of old Rome of a sort
of folk verse not by any means resem
bling thc Latin classics, but bearing a
considerable likeness to the eanti jwjiti
Inri of thc modern Italian peasant. It
may be said parenthetically that thc
study of dialect tends altogether to the
conviction that there are country peo
ple now living in Italy to whom, rather
than to Cicero, we should go if we want
to know what style of speech was in
use among the humbler subjects
of ths C.-vsar. The lettered lan
guage of the cultivated classes
changes; tho spoKen tongue of
the uneducated remains the same;
or. if it too undergoes a process of
change, the rate at which it mores is to
the other wlial the pace of a tortoise is

800 years ago a handful of Lombards

the Lombard idiom- The Ober-Engad-iner

Christ; the Aragoncse colony at Alghe

though dissimilar to both Latin and
standard Italian, find their analogues in
the dialects of those eastward-facing
"Latin plains" whence, in all proba
bility, the people of Rou mania sprang.
