"Let me see, where was I? Cup
and a half of sugar, whites of five
egjjs, beateu Teddy, will you keep
your fingers out of that sugar crock?
There, I will give you one more
lump and that must be the last, now
"Eleanor, you need not beat those
eggs. I declare it is a shame to in
vite you here and then put you in
to the kiicheu to work."
Here pretty Mrs. Gray slopped to
Like breath, and look after her
youngest hopeful, who, havinjr fin
ished his sugar, was evidently puz
zling his curly head to think of more
mischief. Eleanor looked up at her
friend and laughed a low, hearty
laugh that was in itself irresistable,
and continued to beat the foaming
white mass on the platter she held
in her hand. If you had heard
Eleanor Vane laugh without seeing
her face, you would havo immed
iately been possessed with a desire
to behold it; that accomplished, you
would never rest until you had
known the owner.
Don't understand me to mean that
it was a beautiful face it was simp
ly bright and cheery.
Her voice when she spoke, match
ed the laugh in its low, sweet tones.
"You arc the same chatter-box as of
old, Fannie. I cannot sec that a
husband aud two boys have changed
you in the least. I am sorry, for
your sake, that your girl has left you
so suddenly ; but you need not wor
ry on my account. I am never so
happy as when I am interested in
some piece of housework, especially
cooking. You must remember that
I have had a very practical educa
cation. At home, we four girls al
ways managed the housework, tak
ing our turn in each department."
"Ah ! that is the reason you arc so
handy about everything. Eleanor,
what a mistake some mothers make
in bringing up their daughters. I
was brought up in such ignorance of
hoschuold matters. You would be
quite shocked, I know, if I should
tell you of some of the blunders I
have made since I went to house
keeping. If I have a good cook she
soon learns that I nm an ignoramus,
aud fakes advantage of it, and a poor
one must ever remain so, for I can
not leach her better. I dare say I
have no management or good sense,
or I coulii soon learn better; but
I am forever in a muddle of some
There was such honest distress iu
her face that Eleanor could not
laugh, she only helped her with the
cake, and diverted her mind from
unpleasant topics.
Tea-time came, Mr. Gray came
from the store, aud seven-year-old
Robbie from school. Eleanor had
made some biscuit that were so
light and delicate that they almost
melted in one's mouth, and the
white cake was pronounced simply
"I dou't sec but what we get
along well enough without a girl,"
said Mr. Gray, helping himself to a
third biscuit.
"That is because Eleanor is here.
Never mind, she is going to teacli
me all she knows; I shall surprise
you some day," said the little wife,
hopefully. Ho laughed, and was
about to leave the room, when he
drew a letter from his pocket and
tossed it upon the table. "Here is
a letter from Auut Jauo, Puss, I had
almost forgotten it." Mrs. Gray
opened the tinted envelope and read
the dainty note inside in silence ;but
the expression on her face was elo
quent with disappoiutment, mingled
with despair.
"What is the matter, Fan," said
Eleanor, almost frightened. "Is
anyone sick or dead? I never saw
you look eo perfectly hopeless."
"Aunt Jane and Cousin Belle arc
coming here."
"Is that all?"
"Why, Eleanor. You have no idea
what a dreadful woman Aunt Jane
is. I suppose because Charlie
has no mother she thinks she is
called upon to be ray mother-in-law.
She and Belle come here every year,
and stay sometimes six weeks.
They are a perfect torment to me.
Aunt Jane is a model housekeeper,
aud never excuses a failure. She
Likes it upon herself to snook
around into all my closets aud cup
boardsandwell you know they
are always more or less stirred up;
I put things straight once in a while,
then I look for something in a hur
ry, and things arc thrown right and
"I don't profess to be a model
housekeeper," said the poor little
woman, the tears flowing down her
rosy checks, "but it is so aggravat
ing to have her snub and scold me.
She is a miserable old sneak, so
there, and Belle is just like her."
Having thus freed her mind, Fan
nie dried her tears and finished her
supper. Then they talked the mat
ter over seriously.
"In tho first place, we must get a
girl to-morrow at any price," said
"If they are coming to-morrow
evening it would be better to put
the house in order first. Have your
washer-woman come and scrub and
scour everything in the kitchen and
pantries; you and I can see to the
rest of the house, aud bake some
nice things to tickle Aunt Jane's
Fannio's eyes brightened. "You
are such a dear girl. In spite of
Aunt Jane's neatness, she can not
begin to cook as you do. I should
like to have her see some of the
dainty dishes you can make; but
I must not let you work while they
are here."
"You will be obliged to do so,"
said Eleanor, composedly ; "you
have tried two weeks to get a girl
it is not likely you will find one to
morrow. How long will they stay ?
There was apostscrpit there you did
not read."
Fannie took up tho letter and
"Am sorry, but we can 6tay but
a few days, owing to our expecting
some friends from the East.
"Isn't that glorious? I believe I
could find a girl who would come
for a 6hort time."
"Please mum, could I suit," said
Eleanor, dropping a courtesy.
"Dou't joke now, there's a dear,
I'm iu such trouble."
"I never was more in earnest in
my life."
Fannie's blue eyes opened to their
widest extent, while her friend pro
ceeded to explain herself.
"I never met Charlie's aunt and
cousin, and I do not care to know
them. I Bhould enjoy the fun of
watching the old lady without tho
bother of an introduction. Pray let
mo do it Fannie; you can have all
your time to visit with them, and I
will rack my brain to get up nice
dinners, and keep the closets iu or
der," she added, mischievously.
"What if some of my other friends
should come?"
"Luckily it has rained so since 1
came that no one in town is any the
wiser for my being here. I have
been playing the fiue lady at Uncle
Morton's for six months, Fan, and a
little masquerading as Biddy would
be refreshing."
"It will be only a few days" said
Fannie, thoughtfully, and Eleanor
knew that she had won the day.
"How did you enjoy your visit at
your uncle's?" inquired Fannie, as
they cleared the table and washed
the dishes.
"Oh! it was grand, of course;
their home is elegant,aud they enter
tain a great deal of company. Aunt
Lucy insisted on furnishing all my
parly dresses, and I dare say I pass
ed for a lady who had been raised
in tho Jap of luxury, and knew noth
ing of the common duties of life.
There is tho danger of judging by
outside appearances."
"A very dear friend of ours was
in fhc city last wiulcr attending
lectures; I wonder if you met him
Dr. King."
Eleanor's face flushed crimson.
"Yes, he came to the house quite
often. He is a relative of some
friends of Aunt Lucy's. I didn't
know he lived here."
"He is not here now; and I am
very glad he is not on one account.
Aunt Jane has selected him for
Belle, and I have some pity for the
poor fellow. It scem3 to me if she
has made up her mind to do it he
will be bound to yield. I have no
doubt that this is the object of her
visit. How provoked they will be
not to find him."
The next day was a very busy onimold me you wished I would fall in
At night it was safe to say that Mrs.
Gray's house was never in such a
state of perfect order and neatness
before. Not a nook or corner but
had been regulated, while the pan
try shelves groaned under their
weight of good things to surprise
Aunt Jane. If Fannie had any
doubts of her friend's capacities be
fore, she had dismissed them from
her mind at once and forever. She
worked with 6iich swiftness, and at
tained such marvelous results, that
the little woman was dumb with as
tonishment. The company arrived late in the
evening. The next morning Aunt
Jane came down with her patron
izing air, prepared to show the
young housekeeper "how I do so
and so."
Belle was a languid, sharp-nosed
girl of 30, who was called pretty,
and probably was at 18 ; but seemed
now a littlo faded, although she af
fected girlish ways.
Mr. Gray welcomed them and
they proceeded at once to the'brcak-fast-table,
upon which Aunt Jane
looked with wondering eyes.
It was Fannie's china and silver;
but there was something new in the
arrangement that sfruck her eye at
once. Then as her hostess poured
out the amber coflce'aud added tho
cream that made it fit for a king,
Aunt Jane really looked injured. If
there was anything that she prided
herself on, it was knowing how to
make good coffee. Faunic always
gol a lecture on the subject.
This morning it trembled on her
tongue; but came no farther. She
swallowed it down with the de
licious coffee which she was forced
to acknowledge iu her own heart,
was better than her own.
She turned her attention to her
steak. It lav upon her plate, smok
ing hot, a delicate piece of undercut
broiled close over the coals. She
ate it, and. asked for more. Then
the muffins and fried potato; could
anything be nicer? Of one thing,
however, she felt ccrtaiu, it was not
Fannie's doing.
"Have you a good girl ?" asked
"Oh ! passable," answered Fannie
with a twinkle iu her eye, as Eleanor
entered just then with a plate of hot
Aunt Jane put up her eye-glass,
aud scanned her from head to foot.
"A very nice-looking girl,"
thought she, "and the best cook Fan
nie ever had."
After breakfast came the tour of
inspection, aud Fannie laughed to
herself to see how disappointed her
aunt looked as they returned to the
sitting-room with no subject for a
Iectnre. She would have laughed
still more if she had kuown the re
solvo in that lady's mind. It was
"I shall offer that girl higher
wages to come and live with me."
"I am sorry Dr. King is not in
town," said Fannie, expecting to
6ee her guests look crest-fallen; but
imagine her surprise when Belle an
swered briskly :
"Oh ! but he is, that is the reason
we I mean he came on the same
train that we did."
"Quite a coincidence," said Fan
nie inwardly raging to herself.
''Therel I know it would end in a
muddle. I wanted Dr. King to fall
iu love with Eleanor, if he has not
already, and hero is that odious
Belle under his nose, and Eleanor iu
the kitchen. What shall I do ?"
She went out to Eleanor as soon
as possible, and tried to persuade
her to abandon her plan.
She was not successful.
"I do not see any danger iu it.
lie will not sec me. Let Miss
Belle have full chance. I shall
enjoy hearing you report proceed
ings." "Oh, Eleanor, he is so nice, I had
thought and hoped "
"Yes, I know ; but, take my ad
vice, Fannie, don't try match-making
; it is not in your line."
Fannie was' in despair; but still
resolved to take matters into her
own liands.
Dr. King came and called. Came
again and 6pcntXhe evening.
A week passed ; but the guests
6aid nothing about leaving.
"We are in for a six weeks' siege,"
groaned Fannie in secret. Soon af
ter this the Doctor called one after
noon and found Fannie alone.
She began to question him about
his winter in the city, and she being
a very old friend, he talked quite
"I had a very dear friend there,
Eleanor Vane. Did you meet her?"
questioned the little lady, looking at
him with innocent eyes.
The young man changed color,
first red, then very pale.
"Yes, I saw her very often."
"You liked her you could not
help it," said she eagerly.
"I remember now that vou once
love with this friend of yours," said
he with a smile.
"And so you did," thought Mrs.
Fannie, exultantly.
"She is very charming," he con
tiuued,"very lovable ; but she would
not bo the right kind of a wife for
me. lam a poor man, a physician,
aad whcn'I marry, it must be a girl
who has had practical education. I
would not ask a lady like Miss Vane
to share my life. She has been ten
derly reared by wealthy relatives,
and is a fine lady in every respect.
If you could see her as I did spark
ling with diamonds, aud arrayed in
costumes whoso cost would be a
year's incorao to me, you would not
wonder that I fought back the love
I felt for her. 5uch a marriage
would only bring uuhappincss.
Just here, to Fannio's relief, her
guests returned, and she excused
herself and ran up-stairs to Eleanor's
room, where bIic laughed herself in
to a fit of hysterics; but refused to
explain the cause of her merriment.
Tho Doctor had a very pressing
invitation to dine at the Gray'e, the
next day, and the dinner was a mar
vel of culinary art. It had been
planued that the washerwoman's lit
tlo girl was to wait ou the first
courses, and Eleanor was to bring
in the desert.
Fannie felt a little nervous as she
tapped the bell, and noticed that
Eleanor hesitated a moment as she
opened the door and saw the trap
(hat had been laid for her; but it
was only a moment. She then came
forward with 6lightly heightened
color, and performed hor duties
with trembling hands.
Dr. King and Aunt Jano wcro
having a very interesting discussion,
and it was possible that he would
not havo noticed the girl, if she had
not called his attention to her.
"This is the girl whose cooking
we have all been praising," she said,
patting Eleanor's arm in her patron
izing way. Sho had resolved to en
tice Fannie's cook away, and almost
felt that she was her own property
at this minute. It was quite natural
for this woman to praise anything
that belonged to herself. "
Dr. King looked up with a picas
ant 6mile at the blushing girl ; when
he uttered an exclamation of sur
prise and half rose from his chair,
looking with dilated eyes.
Eleanor felt that it was time for
her to leave, and did so as quickly
and quietly as possible.
"What is the matter, Doctor?
You look as if you had seen a
ghost," said Bell, sharply.
He murmured some inarticulate
reply, and looked to his hostess for
help ; but that naughty little woman
seemed as much surprised as the
"Don't you think did you not
notice the resemblance?"
"Between whom?"
"Your girl and Mis9 Vane."
"Now that you speak of it, I do.

Mr. Grey and Robbie both looked
as if they were going to speak ; but
by shaking her head at one, and
stepping on the other's toes Mrs.
Grey silenced them both. Dr. King
played with his dessert, and looked
so distressedly uncomfortable.that it

Tho gentleman started away soon
after dinner; but not until Fannie
had whispered to him, "Aunt Jane
aud Bell will be away to-morrow
afternoon, and if you will call, I
think I can explain that resem
blance." He looked more mystified
than ever, but said he would come.
It took considerable strategy to
make Eleanor attire herself in her
most becoming dress, aud go to the
door when the bell rang. She rath
er suspected that Fanny meant mis
chief, and when Dr. King stepped
into the hall and took both her
hands in his, saying, "Can it be
possible that it was you I saw yes
terday, or have you just arrived?
Pray explain this mystery," sho felt
sure it was all a plot, aud was una

on the scene then, and told the 6tory

their wrath.

would never enter it again.

Machines on tho above named
principle, says Galignani'a Messen
ger, are. now at work on tramway
from Rcuell to Marly, near Paris,
and with very satisfactory results.
The system in use is one introduced
by M. Francy, an engineer, and is
based on the fact that water boils at
a lower temperature proportionate
ly to the production of tho atmos
pheric pressure. Most of our read
ers are aware that water requires a
heat of 212 degrees Fahrenheit to
boil at the level of the sea, a much
lower temperature will produce the
same effect at the top of a mountain.
We will now explain how that
physiological fact is practically em
ployed. Into a reservoir of thin
steel we cannot call it a boiler, for
it has neither fireplace nor fire is
introduced 1,800 litres of water at a
temperature of 200 degrees Fahren
heit, then covered hermetically.
The steam it gives off at once fills
up the superincumbent space and
produces a pressure of fifteen at
mospheres. As long as auy of the
vapor is turned on for moving tho
machine tho pressure is reduced,
and the water then begins to boil,
producing a fresh supply of ateam.
Of course, the process is of but lim
ited extent, as, at tho commence
ment, the liquid only contained a
certain amount of heat, which la
gradually diminished a3 the repro
duction of steam takes place at
lower temperature by tho exhaus
tion of superincumbent pressure.
So far a machine of this description
would bo obviously totally inade
quate to any very prolonged jour
ney. But for short transit it has
been found extremely serviceable.
As the amount of pressure required
to work the engine is only ilvo
atmosphere?, a scries of valves aro
bo arranged as to prevent a greater
amount of force issuing from tho
reservoir thau is necessary, and thus
retaining as far as possible, the heat
originally contained in tho water.
The driving part of tho machinery
is nearly identical with that of or
dinary locomotive?, with a few
modifications for the purpose of
guarding against useless wasto of
the heat originally Introduced into
the reservoir.
Executive Ability.
Very few men are blessed witb
the talent of doing moro than one
thing well. In tho economy of na
ture our gifts, as a rule, are few.
One may be able to plan but can
not execute, while his neighbor's
executive ability is his strong point.
This man is good at the wheel, but
lacks financial ability; another ouo
can design china aud carthen-waro
of superior style, but falls short of
success as a business manager. Sim
ilar experiences arc met with in
every trade. Men may succeed in
the routine of designing, and in
other departments of potting, but
when their success in any ono of
these encourages them to essay man
ufacturing, they are all at sea, sim
ply because the latter position calla
for the exercise of entirely different
qualifications. 2Hovf and again wo
find notable execptious to this rnlo.
We meet occasionally with men who
possess a combination of different
and varied excellences, snperior
wherever they are placed; but, on
the whole, 6uch instances aro rare
30 rare, iu fact, that the exception
only proves the rule. Such men aro
successful. They must be, for they
possess overy requisite in the whole
range of mechanical and executivo
ability. Other men, who know
nothing, practically, about the de
tails or construction and qualities of
materials, sometimes succeed, bnt
they have an executive power well
developed, aud, supported by a clear
judgment traiucd by experience,
they master all difficulties.
One class of men may not know
how to draw the simplest pattern,
but, on the other hand, they may
possess good taste, which will ena
ble them to decide whether a design
is good or bad, and their discern
ment foretells its reception with tho
trade. Give them a basis and a
plan, and they will completo tho
structure. On the other hand, those
who have tho practical routine
thoroughly by heart, but lack tho
executivo power, generally fail in
their attempt to do business. What
wo wish to impress is tho import
ance of executive talent. It is tho
all-powerful lever. It is not always
a gift. In nearly every man thero
is n germ, which, with proper culti
vation, will develop this trait to a
certain degree. Young men learn
ing the business should stndy it in
all its bearings, and afford it every
opportunity for growth. With it
success is possible, even if mechan
ical genius and practical apprentice
ship arc wanting, but without it tho
best workman is unfitted for inde
pendent business operations. Wo
do not urge this point to the exclu
sion of others, but we know its
possession 13 imperative. Too much
knowledge concerning tho details of
a business can not be had, and what
ever else you lack, do not fail to
cultivate the executive faculty.
