A now tcrlcs ot New Zealand stamp \
ha been Issued , which arc already
tagerly sought for by collectors. It
may have contributed to this that an
English syndicate had offered the gov
ernment to take a large quantity of
them but with the condition that the
postoGlce should promise not to sell
the new stamps In New Zealand be
fore tlio expiration of three monthu ,
and to sell no stamp * during the came
tlmo to any foreign concern. The
proposition was declined. The ad
vertising thus given by the London
concern to the issue has caused an
enormous demand for the stamps in

A NAVAL HERO'S STORY ,
( From the Times-Herald , Chicago , III )
Ltuo iu 1801 , when President Lincoln
ibguod a call for volunteers , ! < . J. Clark , of
Warren , Trumbull Co. , Ohio , -was among
the first to respond. Ho joined the mortar
fleet of Admiral Porter just before the
memorable operations on the Mississippi
river began. It was at the tcrriflc bom
bardment of the Vicksburg forts , that the
hero of thin story fell -with a bbattered arm
from a charge of schrapnel.
After painful months iu the hospital he
recovered bufflciemtly to bo sentio his home
at Warren , Ohio. Another call for troop *
fired his patriotic zeal and Clark roon en
listed in Company H. of the 7th Ohio Vol
unteers. In the army of the Potomac , he
was in many engagements. Being wounded
in a Ekirmibh near Richmond , he was sent
to the hospital and thence home.

Several years ago Dr. Clark's old -wounds
began to trouble him. Ho grew -weak and
emaciated , and his friends despaired of his
lif o. Ho finally recovered sufficiently to be
out , but was a mere shadow , weighing only
90 pounds. The best medical attendance
failed to restore his lost strength rid vigor.
"A friend gave mo a box of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People , " said Dr. Clark.
and they helped me so much that I bought
a half dozen bores and took them. I coon
regained my strength , notr weigh 100
pounds and , " except "for injuries that can
never be remedied , am SB well as ever.
"I consider Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Palo People the best remedy to build up a
run down system , and heartily recommend
them to everyone in need of such aid. "

laughed and joked around the campfire -

Five years ago he had left his east
ern homo to endure the privations of
a mining engineer in a new country.

His mother had dreaded to see him

"Why is the paleface brother sad ? ' *
"Why , you naughty little girl , why
did you stray so far from home at this
time ? " Overton exclaimed , as he looked -
od upon the dark , sweet face so neai *
"Father came to see you , and I came ,
too. I am going away , Overton. The
heart of Robin aches within her. She

winds sigh more deeply In the pines ;

As her sweet , monotonous tones
ceased Overton looked Into her face.
Her mother had been the daughter of
a noble chief of a tribe of Indians ,
and her father was an officer at tin
fort She was , perhaps , 15 , and carried
herself with the dignity of her race.
She had her father's classic features ,
but the sadness of her mother's people
shone In her great black eyes.
When Overton came to the north
west country he had some work to do
at the fort where she lived. He had
killed a huge snake one day. An in
stant later and it would have been
upon her. Since then she had loved
him with the unreasoning affection of
an animal. Her father joined them as
they sat there. Taking Robin's hand ,
he drew her .to him.
"Poor little one ! I am going to send
her East , Overton. "
"No better plan could suggest Itself.
You should have sent her some time
ago. Be a good little girl , Hobin.
KILLED A HUGE SNAKE.
Learn a lot , but don't forget your old
"I shall never forget , " and turning
quickly she glided away.
Unusually bright , her constant com
panionship with her father had deep
ened her intellect. They learned to
love her in the school. With careful
treatment her skin grew fine-grained
and fairer. Her hands were small , soft
and dimpled. She did not look like
an alien , and few could guess that In
dian blood ran in her veins.
Her habitual sadness never left her ,
but her smiles were ready and often.
She combined the best of the two
races from which she sprung , and a
more charming woman was never in
troduced into the gay world than Kob-
in , daughter of Captain Strathmore.
Overton had made rapid strides in
his profession. The years seemingly
left no impression on his handsome
face. To his heart he still clasped his
dream , of Priscilla.
She had been married , and was now
a widow , still as lovely and fair as
In her sweet girlhood , so rumor had it.
For the first time in many years he
decided to go home , back to the old
haunts , the old friends , and Priscilla.
Alas ! He found them changed. The
old house was the same , but his moth
er had gone away. At the club new
faces greeted him. Selfish , narrow ,
aimless men stagnated In the little
town. He felt then and there like tak
ing the next train back where he could
breathe the pure , sweet air and feei
the freedom and ambition of the
'A relative was to entertain that eve
ning , and he was the guest of honor.
Ho came in a little late , and paused a
moment In the corridor. 'Looking
across the room , he saw the object of
his dream , the Priscilla of long ago.
She was certainly lovely , but
Accustomed as he was to read hu
man nature , he saw in that face every
thing which he left out of his ideal.
She had thrown him over for a rich
man. He had thought that she ha ; ]
been forced to it by. her parents , and
had pitied her so much.
She looked so complacent , so self-
satisfied , so worldly. Everything she
did seemed to be for effect.
"What an idiot I have been. " He
turned and walked to the piazza.
"What an artificial atmosphere ! I am
going back by the first train. "
He turned to go , but before him
stood a magnificent woman. Was it
her expression or was It her face that
reminded him of that one old masters
so loved to portray ?
Her regal head , her beautiful face ,
had the dignity ot a queen. As she
smiled he thought of the running
streams in the mountains , the music
of the pines of the beautiful Western
country of his adoption ; then her
eweet , monotonous voice broke the si

HAVE YOU A PIAZZA ?
With a Little Furnlshlug It Can Bv
Made an Ideal Summer Retreat.
J. Harry Adams illustrates and de
scribes in the Woman's Home Compan
ion some very clever devices for fur
nishing the front piazza. "While a
few chairs are the only necessary
pieces of furniture for the comfortable
disposal of the several members of
the family , it is oftentimes a pleasure
to convert the piazza , or a portion of it ,
Into a convenient lounging and read
ing room. It will be a very simple
matter to arrange the few odd pieces
of furniture necessary to bring about
the change. A few chairs , a table ,
divan , hammock and some stools , a
rug and seme large plants in jar
dinieres , if tastefully arranged , will
work a wonderful change in the ap
pearance of any piazza ; and if the sun
should shine on any part sufficient to
annoy the occupants , a few large bam
boo screens can be fastened in place
to shade it nicely and protect one's
eyes from the unpleasant top light.
When old furniture is to be renovated
for this purpose It should be well fas
tened together with screws to Insure
the strength and safety necessary ;
then , having been sandpapered to re
move rough places and old varnish ,
two or three successive thin coats of
some desirable colored paint can be
applied until the appearance is satis
factory. Upholstered seats or backs
that are pretty well worn can be re
covered with denim or other service
able and strong material , and fastened
in place with upholstery tacks with
large oval heads. If the old furniture
that is found in the attic or cellar
should not be available for piazza use ,
it is possible to make some very good
pieces from some boxes , boards and a
little upholstery-goods. Furniture of
this description will be found very ser
viceable on a piazza , as it needs little
or no care , and if somewhat abused
regret will not follow , as In the abuse
of a better grade that has been pur
chased. Awnings about the upper part
of a piazza are oftentimes a necessity
to keep the sunlight off , and consequently
quently keep it cool , and in any event
they prove a satisfactory shield to the
eyes from the light above. Where they
are used the mild and subdued under
light that prevails is soft and pleasing ,
particularly If a buff or straw-colored
canvas is employed. "
A PLEA FOR THE HOME WOMAN
The Most Brilliant Gifts Are Xofc Too
JMnch to Ilrinjr to a Ilome.
"The home woman seems to some
one who might have fitted certain nar
row conditions of the past and certain
prosaic ones of the present , but never
the needs of progress. The fact is , the
needs of a home and the qualifications
of a home-keeper stand first in im
portance , " is the position taken by
Mary R. Baldwin when writing of "The
Possibilities of a Home Woman" in the
Woman's Home Companion. "So few
women realize the possibilities for ex
ercising the most thoughtful energies
in learning to be a home-maker. The
opportunities for developing endow
ments , scientific , intellectual or execu
tive , to their fullest scope , are as pres
ent hero as anywhere else. The girl
who never dreams of having a home
of her own and some one at the head
of it whom she can delight to honor
and love is generally lacking in her
feminine make-up. Mothers who , after
their daughters arrive at a suitable
age to instruct them upon the subject
of love , marriage and the duties of
home-keeping , neglect this part of
training , must sometimes awaken to
the fact of what they have missed. And
yet one would not cast a shadow over
the bright dreams cf youth and force
a young creature out of her girlhood
by emphasizing to her the somber real
ities of life before she takes up the
duties that belong to a future experi
ence. The girl must not be cheated
out of one stage of her development :
if she is , through any cause , she will
carry through her life a sense of hav
ing been defrauded of something that
was rightly hers. If a girl is kept
true and truthful and pure , she has
the foundation qualities upon which to
build the happiness of a home. But
she needs direction in those habits that
have a direct bearing upon its peace
and comfort , and one must be a very
inexperienced or selfish person who re >
fuses to regard the- small things hi
their relation to the management of the
affairs of a home. The most thorough
education , the most brilliant gifts , the
most fascinating personality these
t.re not too much to bring to a home ,
and the Investment of the wealth of
mind and heart will insure rich re
turns to the sacred spot where love
and service should go hand in hand. "

liver. How he recovered and was enabled
to feed seventy head of utock during the

Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills , nnd finding almost
