RAIN * OVER ,
When the rain is over ,
When the clouds have pass'd ,
And the golden sunshine
Beams again at last ;
And the earth is fairer ,
Ev'ry fashioned flow'r
Lifts its head to answer ; I :
"Thank you , little show'r I"
When the show'r is over.
When the rain is done ,
Nature's all the sweeter ,
Brighter shines the sun. x
When the tears are over , !
When the pain has pass'd ,
And the smiles and dimples
Come again at last ;
Never mind the bruises ,
Laugh away the fears ;
Answer like the flowers ;
"Thank you , little tears ! "
When the tears are over ,
Smiles come back again ;
Life is all the sweeter
For the drops of rain !
Casscll's Little Folks.
The Rescue of Regalia ,
BY KATE M. CLEARY.

"Thou art glad when Hassan mounts
the saddle ,
Thou are glad he owns thee ; so am
I ! "
Reggie's contempt was -
"You goose ! ' he said to his sister.
"Here you're blubberin' all over Wil-
liewinkie's neck. "
Miss Adelaide Carlender , still young
enough to quarrel with Reggie ,
promptly whisked her handkerchief
Into her sleeve and straightened up
with much dignity. She had given
.Williewinkie her own little black
pony to Reggie the fall before when
ehe and Clive Harland had decided
they were quite unsuited to each oth
er and that there was no earthly use
in attempting to patch up this latest
"For I never shall ride again , "
Adelaide had said heartbrokenly.
"Never ! " Now , when once more the
roads were white and firm in the city
boulevards , and the bougeoning trees
on either hand spoke of the summer ,
and all distant lanes in emerald leaf
invited to joyous freedom and bound
ing activity , there had come to Adel
aide a queer heartsick feeling that was
almost like nostalgic a longing for *
what had been for what might never
be again. Oh , the rides they'd had
just a year ago she on Williewinkie
Clive on Regalia. The dewy morn
ings , with the incense of earliest way
side blooms rising fragrant to greet
them. Brown buds of oak and maple
were swelling then. And in the city
parks were the delicious signs of com
ing summer those parks where al
ready the grey-coated sparrows and
the red-coated robins held glorious
Now , Clive had gone abroad with
his people. The fine home to the right
was closed. The society journal de
clared the family might return in the
fall. There were some hints thrown
out of dive's enthuiastic reception in
English society , and of his engage
ment to the daughter of an English
baronet All this Adelaide learned be
fore she had come down here with her
parents to open their summer home.
But it seemed to be borne in upon her
1 "I Never Blubber. "
with fresh force when she found her
self once more in the familiar stables ,
with brer arm around Williewinkie's
neck , and Williewinkie's brown nose
poking into her palm for sugar.
"I never blubber , ' * Adelaide assured
her small brother with a wan smile
she meant to be chilly and lofty
"And I I think you ought to be more
more grateful after my giving you
. Williewinkie. "
Now Reggie was only eleven , but he
was wise in his generation. He knew
Adelaide did not care a snap for
Williewinkle since her surrender of
him. And he too had pleasant mem
ories of dive's largesse the previous
"Oh , that's all right , " he returned
magnificently. "I was only stringin'
a bit. But say ! Do you know
they've sent Regalia down with the
other horses , and her beast of a groom
"I Saved Regalia. "
is runnin' her knee-sprung and fod-
derin' her to beat the band ? "
Adelaide's crisp duck morning skirt
rustled. Adelaide's pink hat of shirred
liberty silk slipped back on her neck.
Adelaide's two big gold-brown braids
were suddenly whisked over her shoul
der in the agitation of her swift sweep
"No ! Is ho though ? I've a mind
a good mind to give him a talking. "
"Sho ! " ejaculated Reggie loftily. "As
though he'd mind a girl : "
But that night when Adelaide had
turned her pretty ringleted head a
dozen times on the pillow , and finally
succeeded in cantering off to the
pleasant world of dreamland , it was to
find that Williewinkie and Regalia
were both there before her and were
having a glorious gallop down a slope
of sunny sward , quite ignoring the
imperative cries which followed them
to halt !
And suddenly she was sitting up in
bed , with Reggie's voice in her ears
and queer smell of smoke in her nos
"I say oh , Ade , I say the Harland
stables are on fire. Don't you hear
the men shouting ? What did you
want to bolt your door for ? I
thought I'd never get in. They're
bringing the volunteer fire department
up from town , but it will be too late
I know it will. Say ! What are you
doing where are you going ? "
For Adelaide had promptly pdunged
her head into a basin of cold water ,
tossed the mass of heavy wet hair
back over her shoulders , secured it
with a heavy bone pin , and tumbling
into the golf costume which happened
to be the nearest clothing at hand
was tugging at her shoes and jerking
out the laces by way of saving the
trouble of securing them.
"For Regalia ! " gasped Adelaide , and
then she was gone.
When Reggie got back to the Har
land stables never a glimpse could he
catch of his daring sister. His father
was there , as was his big brother , and
they were half-distracted. Some one
had seen Adelaide enter the burning
building. She had not emerged as far
as was known. And the place was
doomed. For over the puny streams
of water , over the blaze that lit the
surrounding spaces , over the harsh
and exultant crackle of the flames ,
rose the agonized and half human
neighs and trumpetings of imprisoned
beasts. Colonel Carlender tore around
like a madman. "My daughter is in
there ! " he screamed. "A thousand
dollars to the man who brings her
out ! "
But the man who attempted the
rescue , the man who had ridden out
from the town depot where he had
just left his train , at sight of the
flames , and who now dropped from
his horse only to rush into the burn
ing building , was beaten back con
"She had a knife ! " cried a stentor
"I seen her dip a horse-blanket in
a trough and cover her head with It. "
" " the newcomer
"Who was she ? shouted
comer , who had attempted to enter
the building. "Who was she ? "
A hundred voices in unison answered
him : "Squire Calender's daughter ! "
Just then a cry of horror rent the
air the cupola had fallen with a
crash. And just then , as the by
standers banded in an attempt to keep
the stranger from again attempting an
entrance , two muffled figures were dis
tinguishable through the smoke. One
they seemed , for the heads of both
were covered by the folds of a blanket
already blazing , and down dropped as
they staggered out the knife with
which the halter of Regalia had been
"Save him ! " panted Adelaide , as she
fell in her father's arms. "It's his
horse dive's. I saved Regalia ! "
When she regained consciousness in
the blue calm of the summer dawn ,
it was not in those same arms she
awoke. For her lover was holding her
as though he would never let her go ,
and his adoring eyes were beaming
down upon her. "My brave darling ! "
he said. "I had just got in on the
midnight train. My first thought was
for Regalia. But when I knew you
were there you No , no ! You will
not be disfigured at all , thank God !
But , even if you were oh , my gallant
girl oh , my best beloved ! "
HOW THE FISHES BREATHE.
Water Should Be Aerated to GTO Them
The gills of a fish are situated at the
back part of the sides of the head ,
and consist of a number of vascular
membranes , which are generally in
double , fringe-like rows , fixed by the
base only ; sometimes these are featherlike
er-like , and sometimes they are mere
folds of membrane attached at each
end over the gill cavities. In general
there are four gills on each side ,
though in some fish there are more.
In fishes that have bones the gills are
attached to the outer edge of bony
arches connected with the bone of the
tongue and with the base of the skull ,
the connection at each end being by
intervening small bones , while the
cavity containing the gills on each side
of the head is covered by a bony plate
with two subordinate pieces. It is by
the movement of these bony plates that
the water is expelled which is taken
in through the mouth , and which , after
passing among the gills and supplying
them with air , passes out by the gill
opening at the back of the head. The
fish is a cold-blooded animal that is ,
its temperature is very slightly above
that of the water in which it lives ,
and it therefore needs but little oxygen
to keep the blood warm enough to sus
tain its life. This oxygen , supplied to
the blood by the gills in respiration , is
not obtained by decomposing the wa
ter , but by separating the air from it.
It is , therefore , necessary that the wa
ter in which fish live should be sup
plied with air , and this is one of the
direct benefits of the agitation of
oceans and lakes by winds. Fishes
confined in aquariums often die for
this very reason because the water is
not aerated. They consume all the
oxygen in the closed vessel in which
they are placed , and no more being
supplied , they die , and may be said
to be drowned , because they perish
from the same cause that occasions
death by drowning in lung breathing
animals that is , want of air. Golden
Buttons are being used much mere
than the invisible hook-and-eye that
was always striving to creeg into no
tice of the past few years. No one es
pecial kind of button is in vogue. They
are used with due reference to the
material of the dress. With figured
silk , brocade or velvet a small fancy
button of enamel , metal or jeweled is
good. With plain silk or satin a small
crochet button is preferred. Smooth
cloths have tailor buttons of the same
material , and cheviot , tweed , home
spun , etc. , are fastened with horn , bone
or smoked pearl buttons.

The common lilac , which is known
to botanists as syringa vulgaris , has
been in cultivation for over 300 years ,
and its native home is said to been
on the mountainous regions of Cen
tral Europe , from Piedmont to Hun
gary , whence it was introduced to cul
tivation in 1597. Botanists recognize
about 12 species of lilacs , found in a
wild state , and these are native from
southwestern Europe through Central
Asia and the Himalayas to Mongolia ,
Northern China , and Japan. None of
the species is a native of the American
