WHEN MOLLIE BATHES T.HE
When Mollie bathes the baby
I lay my book aside
And watch the operation
With deep paternal pride ;
Iscan the dimpled body
of the strug1In ; little eft
For undeveloped points of
Resemblance to myself. ,
When Mollie bathes the baby
She always says to me : L ,
"Isn't he just as cunning
And sweet as he can be ?
Just see those pretty dimples !
Aren't his eyes a lovely blue ? "
And then , "You precious darling ,
I could bite those arms in two.
When Mollie bathes the baby
I always say to her :
"Look out now , don't drop him , "
And she answerr back , "No , sir ; "
Then I tall about his rosy cheek. ,
The muscle3 in his arms ,
His shapely head , his sturdy lets ,
And other manly charms.
When Mollie bathes the baby
The household bends its knee ,
And shows him greater deference
Then ever itshows tome.
But I feel no jealous goading ,
As they laud him to the shies ,
For every one assures me
That he has his father's eyes.
-Ladies' Home JournaL
BY "TIlE DUCHESS.
< 'Well , my dear , perhaps so. I
OWEI am stupid , " said Mrs. Neville ,
who , though the best and kindliest
of women , is certainly in no danger
of setting the Thames afire with her
cleverness. "Though I can't see why
you should dislike the idea so much.
He is quite charming , in my opinion ,
and so handsome ! Then there is
Lord Stretton ; you can't tell me that
he does not adore the very ground
you walk on ! "
"Oh. Stretton ! " said Maud , dis-
"Dick Penruddock is , of course ,
in many ways far prelerable , " she
says , presently , shifting ground.
"He is quite as rich , and is younger ,
and has prettier manners. But ,
then , you say you object to Dick ,
"No , I don't object to Mr. Pen-
ruddock , " says the girl , with a soft ,
slow blush ; "that is not it. You
mistake me , Mimi. " ( 't'his is the
pet name she gave to Mrs. Neville
when a child. ) " 1 only mean that
I shall never marry. "
"But ? " .
"Can you ask me that ? " returns
she , with a glance full of the liveliest -
"But the thing is not a secret-
all the world knows how I adopted
you , and that you are the daughter
of some poor mechanic , dead before
I ever saw you. But they know ,
too , that you are the most beautiful
and the most charming girl in the
town ! Yes , you are ! " in answer to a
deprecating shake of Miss Neville's
head ; "and if these men love you ,
and choose to overlook such a little
fault , why , then , I cannot see- "
' A little fault ! " repeats she sadly.
1'hen with a touch of pride , "Nay it
is no fault at all , but it is a great
misfortune ; and though Stretton-
or-or Mr. Penruddock may , perhaps -
haps , foolishly wish to marry me ,
do you honestly believe their
families would receive me with open
arms ? Do you thiaii it at al likely
that Dick's father would be glad to
see him married to a girl without
name ? It is impossible , Mimi ! "
" 1 know not what they think or
say , but I know that if he were my
son I would gladly see him married
to you , " says Mimi , maintaining her
"That is because you love me , and
because you are different from all
the rest of the world , " says the girl ,
gently , looking at her through a
soft mist , that dims the beauty of
her eyes , and is born of tenderness ,
and gratitude , and deep affection.
After the Dance.
It is many hours later , and the
dance is at its best and gayest. The
sound of music and the delicate perfume -
fume of dying flowers are in the air.
The rooms are filled with all that
London can afford of its brightest
and highest , and best ; and pretty
women in toilets almost as desirable -
able as themselves , are smiling and
waving their fans , and doing all
the damage that soft eyes and
softer speech are supposed to
do. It is the third waltz
and the band is playing
"Mon Rove. " In Dick Penruddock's
opinion it is the waltz of the evening -
ing , as his arm is round Maud
Neville , and her perfect head is very
near his own. He is as happy as a
man can be who holds all he deems
most precious for one moment tohis
heart , knowing that the nest might
separate them forever Presentiy
they pause to rest , and find themselves -
selves near the door of the conserv-
' 'Are you tired' ? " casks he , seeing
she sighs , and raises one hand in a
half wearied fashion to smooth back
some loose hairs that have wandered
across her forehead. Come in here
and sit down for s little while. "
He tightens his arm on the hand
resting upon it , and moves toward
the cool retreat before them.
"If you wish it , " replies she , uncertainly -
certainly , and with some slight hesitation -
tation in her manner.
Yet she goes with him into the
dimly-lighted conservatory , where a
little fountain is splashing , sending
forth a cold , sweet music of its own ,
and where green leaves are glisten-
lug calmly beneath the beams of the
subdued lamps. The time-the hour
-the very drip , drip of the fountain
-all bespeak loneliness ; and to feel
one's self alone with a beloved ob-
) ect , as a rule , kills wisdom. Pen-
ruddock , who all day long has been
enduring suspense , and an uncertainty -
tainty that borders on hope , suddenly -
denly loses pis head. Laying his
hand on Maud's he bends down tot

her , and whispers something in a
soft , impassioned voice. The girl
appears neither startled nor surprised -
prised , and when she spoaths , her
tone , though perhaps a shade slower
than usual , i3 Jirmer than ever.
Only she changes color , or grows
pale until her very lips are bloodlcss.
"You speak without thought or
reflection , " she says , gently. "Yu
have considered nothing. No , n. ;
do not interrdpt mo ! I am sorry
this has occurred ; but there is no
reason why we should not forget
what you have just said , and be good
friends as we were before. "
"There is a reason , and a strong
one , " returns he , very quietly now ;
Wand as to our being mere friends ,
that is quite out of the question. Do
you imagine me an impulsive boy to
say a thing one moment and regret
it the nest ? I have dared to say tonight -
night what I have wanted to say for
many days. And 1 must have my
answerr now. "
"And my birth-have you forgotten -
ten that ? " demanded she , looking at
"I have forgotten nothing But to
me it makes no difference. Princess
or peasant , how can it matter ? I
love you. Darling , " says the young
man very earnestly , taking both of
her hands and holding them closely ,
"I if iplore you to believe in my love !
Take time for reflection , consider
well. I entreat you to give me no
hurried answer. "
"I do not hurry , " returns she , in
a strange tone ; "I will not even argue -
gue with you. Let us say no more
about'it ; and please let my hands go ,
Mr. Penruddock. I cannot marry
you-indeed I cannot"
"But ? least tell
why-at , me
that , " demands he desperately , refusing -
fusing torelease her hands. "Maud ,
answer me ! Do you-is it true that
you love another better , and that is
why you cannot care for me. "
"No : that is untrue. " replies she ,
with quick pain in voice and eyes.
"I love no one better than you ;
which means , .of course"-hurriedly ,
and with a sad little quivering
laugh-"that I love no one. You
will understand me. "
"Only too well , " returns he sadly.
Ho lifts her hands and kisses them
separately , in a forlorn , lingering
fashion. "And 'yet there is some
talk of Stretton , " he says , miserably ,
his face haggard and unhappy.
"Believe nothing you hear , " she
says impressively ; only this-that I
shall never marry. "
Rising and turning abruptly from
him , she moves toward the ballroom -
room , and standing in the doorway ,
gazes , without seeing anything , at
the swaying crowd before het : Presently -
ently she becomes conscious that two
dark eyes are fixed upon her ; she
turns restlessly , and Captain Sauma-
rez stands at her side.
"Not dancing , Miss Neville ? " begins -
gins he , lightly. "And all alone ,
too ! " Then with a change of manner -
ner , and throwing some concern into
his tone , he says , quietly , "You look
overtired. May I take you out of 1
this to one of the smaller rooms beyond -
yond , of in here ? " pointing to the
conservatory she had lust guitteu.
"Oh , no ; not in there ! " exclaims
she with some distress. "But I
shall be glad to get away for a little
Taking his arm , she makes her
way slowly through the dancers and
the lingerers at the doorway , and
presently sinks with a sigh of relief ,
into a low chair , in a small room
that opens off an ante-chamber :
The music seems so very far away
that the noise and confusion could
almost be forgotten. Oh , that
she could not get rid of her companion -
panion , and find herself , if only for
one short half hour , alone !
"Something has annoyed you. Can
I help you in any way ? " says
Saumarez , in his gentlest manner.
"You are very good. No ; it is
nothing. I am only slightly fatigued -
ed , " returns she , listlessly.
"May I get you something ? A
glass of wine-some ice water ? "
b"Thank you-nothing. "
Her evident determination not to
be friendly , her extreme coldness of
voice and gesture , pique him beyond
endurance. What has he done to
her that this proud girl should treat
him with such open distain ?
"I saw yougo into the conservatory -
tory about ten minutes ago , " he
says. after a slight pause , some
reckless desire to rouse her from
her apathy , and bring anger , if he
cannot summon love , into those
beautiful eyes below him , inciting
him to his speech. . "You seemed
greatly disturbed when you came ,
out again. Was that boy rude to
you ? "
"That boy ? " repeats she , in an
"I am speaking of Penruddock , "
returns he , with a cool persistence.
"Was he rude ? "
"I hardly know , how to answer
such a question , " says Miss Neville ,
frigidly. "I never knew until now-
to-night-that any man could be
rude to me. "
' Ah ! then I am to understand he
did offend ? " says Saumarez , insolently -
ly , his evil genius at his elbow.
"I was not alluding to Mr. Pen-
ruddock ; he is incapable of any act
of ill-breeding ; I was alluding to
you ! " says Maud , in a clear tone ,
rising as she delivers this retort. ,
She would have swept by him and ,
left the room , but with a smothered
exclamation he seizes her hand , and
detains her against her will. I
"Stay ! " cried he , with some pas-
sion. "I have something to say to
you , that I have too long withheld , l
and that you shall hear now or
"Then it shall be never ! " says he
girl , quickly. "I decline to listen
to anything you have to say. Release -
lease me , sir ; your very touch is
hateful to mo ! "
"Ah , since Penruddock came upon
_ ; YSS--- -Y -
I the field. Do you 'think I am so
blind that I cannot see how he has
gained favor when all others have
been treated with studied coldness ?
Do you think I have not noticed
how he- "
"I decline to discuss Mr. Penrud-
dock with you , " says Maud , throw-
lag up her head with a gesture full
of graceful dignity' that might have
adorned a queen.
"Is he so precious in your
sight ? " says Saumarez , with
a sneer. "And is this new
lover prepared to overlook the fact
of your humble birth ? "
"Take care , sir ; do not go too
far ! " says Maude , her voice vibrating -
ing with indignation.
"I don't care how far I go now , "
declares he , all the evil blood in his
i heart surging upward to the sur-
face. "I love you , too ! Yes ; you
shall listen to me. though it be for
the last time ! " tightening his fingers
on her wrist. "I love you , as that
boy can never love you-with all the
strength of a man's deepest devotion -
tion ! "
"Hush ! your mention of love is but
an insult ! " says she , in a withering
"My voice is not so silken as his ,
no doubt , " replies he , driven to
madness by her loathing. "Nor do
soft words trip so readily from my
tongue. But will his love stand the
test of time ? trill he never regret
that he has married one who is"
"Lowly born. "
She supplies the , t7ords ; speaking
them bravely , and not flinching
from the stroke.
"Ay , and basely ! " says he , between
It is a lie , and he knows it. But
at this moment he would have uttered -
tered any false thin , to lover the
pride of the woman whom-a strange
paradox-he loves , yet hates !
A terrible change passes over Miss
Noville's countenance as the words
cross his lips.
"No , no ; it is not true ! " she cries ,
all her courage forsaking her. " 1
will not believe it ! What can you
know more , than all the others ? AM
Is it for this reason I have dreaded
you ? have pity , and unsay your
words ! "
"I do not speak without authority -
thority , " replies he , quickly , stung
again by her admission that she
dreads him. "I know all about your
birth"-there is an air of undoubted
truth about these words that strikes
cold to her heart-"and I tell you
again , that you are not only humbly
but basely born ! "
She shudders violently. A low
cry escapes her , and with the hand
that still remains flee she covers
At this instant Penruddock , followed -
lowed by Mr. Wilding , with whom
he is earnestly conversing , enters
the room. He is unfortunately in
time to hear Miss Neville's agonized
cry , and to hear Saumarez's last
Going up to the latter he pushes
him backward , releasing Maud from
"Who has flared to apply such
words as 'basely born' to Miss Neville -
ille ? " he asks , in fiery tones.
"I have said so , and sayit again ! "
says Saumarez , with his usual evil
"lou are a coward ! " says Penrud-
dock , losing all command of his
temper ; and , raising his gloved hand
he strikes him across the face.
There is a second's awful silence ;
then Saumarez-who has instinctively -
ively raised his hand to his cheek ,
on which a pink line may be traced
-says , quietly , turning to Penrud-
dock. "When , and where ? "
"The the better "
sooner , say
Dick , still white , and wild with fury.
Maud , who had shrunk aside , and
who is now standing close to Mr.
1Yildin , , says to him , in a nervous
whisper , so low as to be almost unintelligible -
intelligible , ' -What does it all
mean ? "

been fishing. He hadn't had much
luck , but it was more than he was
used to , and he looked very Jubilant
as he strode into the farmhouse
kitchen with his catch.
" What'je git ? " asked his host.
'Oh , nothing much. Just a few

'I Ito Bible in Japan.
According to the British and For.
sign bible society , there is little
chance for circulation of the bible
in Japan. The society says of Japan :
'The progress of Christianity seems
to pause before the absorption of
the people in their new' political
passions" Some visitors to Japan
say that the trouble is that the
Japanese , eager to receive everything -
thing of Western civilization , have
welcomed the missionaries of all
sects of Christianity , and now are
greatly puzzled over the rival claims
of different denominations.

Philadelphia Inquirer : A Boston

'nature moves in a series of rythms
and passes through alternate epochs of
dominance and subsidence. " We were

we had no idea that matters were so se-
