"It's of no consequence at all,
Elforu not in the least.
They had been whirling arountl in
the mazes of a polkn-redowa, and Major
Elford was jtist conducting Miss Har
rington to a chair behind the velvet
draped column of the doorway, when
an uuluckv footstep sent the toe of his
boot directly through one of
flounces of her dress.
No one but nn acute student of

tected the spasm that crossed
young lady's countenance. In the next
minute sho was aft smiles.
"Pray, Major Elford, don't mind it !"

So the matter passed off, and prob
ably the unconscious army officer would
never have given another thought to
the accident, if, returning from the
supper room, with a glass of gold
sparkling champaign and a plate of
strawberry ice-cream, he had not heard
the fair Esther's voice, just inside the
dressing room door. Naturally, he
stopped. He had espectcd to find her
in the recess of a bay window in the
parlor, whence she had dismissed him
to bring her a slight refreshment; and
as it chanced he couldn't very well
avoid hearing the sound of his own
name, sjioken brusquely enough.
"So clumsy of Major Elford!" cried
Essie, in assents of hearty vexation.

"But how am I to get possession of

"She will find it out Miss Harring
ton, I mean."
"No, she won't! Essie Harrington
has gone to Philadelphia for a visit."
So Major Elford went to the Harring
tons' house, according to his aunt's ad
vice. "The lace flounce, sir!" said Ara
bella, the maid. "The one as got torn,
you mean? Oh, yes, sir certainly,

"Is Mrs. Markham at home?"
Now, Major Elford had expected to
se a yellow, snuff-taking old French
woman, with spectacles, and a red silk
handkerchief pinned around her neck ;
but the lace-mender was quite a differ
ent sort of person. Tall and slender,
with blue liquid eyes, a complexion
pale and clear as wax, and a pleading
expression of face,' she looked like a
steel engraving, just stepped out of
"I am Mrs. Markham," she said
"Perhaps you cannot mend a piece
of torn lace for me?" said our hero,
feeling very much like one who asks a
duchess to darn his stockings.
"It is my business." Will j-ou allow
me to look at it?"
Just as she was unfolding the creamy
layers of scented gossamer, a slipshod
little maid, with flying hair and gown
askew, came darting out of a door be

Mrs. Markham's leautiftilly arched
eyebrows contracted slightly.
-Tell Mr. Markham I will be with

in a hurry for this piece of work, sir?"
turning to Elford.
"Yes no I suppose so!" vaguely
answered our hero, who was absorbed
in indignation that so pretty a womau
should have such a brute of a husband.
"I cannot promise it in less than
three days," said Mrs. Markham. It is

He was punctual to his word.

"Oh, if you please, sir, I don't think

"Master he's been havin' a turn of de

"What a brute," cried out the Major,

Somehow, when Karl Elford went
away, he felt quite well acquainted
with Mrs. Markham:
He brought some niore old lace for
her to mend, the next day lace that
he had begged from Aunt Abby's sandal-wood
scented bureau drawers and
two or three days afterward- he called
for Miss Harrington's Florence lace.
Mrs. Markham produced it, but not
without conscious triumph.
It was like magic. No break, no zig
zag seams all one smooth surface of
snowy leaf and blossomt
"It's worth the money,", said Major
Elford, as he paid the ten dollars.
Helen Markham's statuesque face
lichted up. It was pleasant to have
her sedulous labors appreciated.
So matters went on, until some month
or two afterward, Karl Elford went
home, and took himself to task se
riously. "Old fellow," said he, addressing his
reflection in the glass, "this won't do!
This must be put a stop to! It isn't
your stylo to fall in love with another
man's wife! She is as beautiful as an
angel, and she's as good as she is beau
tifulbut you've just got to keep away !"
He kept away a week, and at the end
of that time he called, "just to see how
sho was getting along."
She looked piteously at him.
"I feared you had forgotten me," she
said, in that sad, little minor voice of
hers. "I have been very lonely. Mr.
Markham (Karl noticed that she never
called him 'my husband,' as did other
wives) has been very trying, and "
Here she broke into a Hood of tears.
"Helen!" cried out Major Elfocd, "do
not weep like that I It breaks my very
heart ! You know why I do not come
oftcner. It is because I dare not bring
myte'f within the charmed atmosphere
of your eyes your voice! Helen, it is
because I am falling in love with an
other mnn's wife I"
Sho looked at him with eyes of glit-
I tering, questioning light.
I "But 1 am not another man's wife!
"You are Mrs. Markham!"
"I am Mrs. Markham, but my hus
band has lain in his grave these five
long, weary years. While he lived, I
wanted for nothing," she added, with a
quiver in her voice
"And this man here?"
"Is Leonard Markham, his ioor, in
temperate father, and mv futher-iu-luw."
Karl Elford started to his feet with
eager, sparkling eyes.
"Then, Holcn, you are free to love
and wed again ?"
"I am free!"
"Helen, will you be my wife? I
would have asked the question long
ago, had I dared. I ask it now, deeply
conscious of my unworthiness, and your
peerless value! Will you be my wife?"
And Helen Markham confessed, with
tears, that her heart was long ago given
in the keeping of the tall young oilicer.
When Miss Harrington returned from
Philadelphia, two things astonished
her. very much. One was that the hole
in her lace flounce had disappeared as
entirely as if it never had auy being ;
the other was the news of Major El
ford's engagement to a young widow.
"Helen Markham? I never heard of

And when Miss Esther discoursed
thus, people thonght instinctively of the
fable of the sonr grapes.
Queen Victoria's Costly Mistake.
Queen Victoria is said to have a great
fondness for pearls. She has taken
care that all her daughters shall have
line pearl necklaces. One of her first
purchases, after the birth of each, has
been two or three pearls, tfnd every
year, until their marriage, she has added
a pearl or two to her stock until the
necklace she required was ready. In
this quiet, economical way she has been
enabled to make up almost a complete
rope of pearls for each of the princesses,
and ttiose who have seen the necklaces
at court, say that the daughters arc, so
far as pearls go, well supplied with jew-
I elry. Thereby hangs a tale. Some
years ago her Majesty bought from a
I well-known London jeweler three very
j valuable pearls, the united cost of which
was not far short of five hundred
I pounds. A little while after the pur
chase had been made, the merchant
was surprised to receive a letter from a
lady at court, which read: "The Queen
wishes very much to know whether
pearls will burn." The reply to this
somewhat tartly scientific inquiry was
an assurance that if her Majesty wished
to oxygenize pearls for her amusement
she would find that they would burn in
an ordinary fire. The rejoinder brought
the secret to light. The Queen had
placed the pearls on her writing desk,
wrapped in a piece of tissue paper. As
she was writiiir one morning, she used
the tissue paper to wipe her pen, and
then threw it into the fire. The pearls,
all unobserved, went with it. The
ashes of the grate were searched for
i them in vain. They had been destroyed
so utterly as to leave no trace. The
Queen with her own hand had cast
three splendid jewels, worth more than
the average income of her middle-class
subjects, into the blaze. Ladies' Houxe

The question is often
at Leap Year,
the vear 1900 be a leap year?" It will
not. When Jnlius Ctesar received the
calendar he appointed an extra day
every four years, and his calendar
lasted until A. D. 15S2. Now the or
dinary vear is 11 minutes and 11 sec-
I onds short of being .'ioT? days in length,
! so that there isn't really a fully sized
' extra day to be added to February every
four years. Ca-sar tluln t know this, or
didn't care about it, and for l.tKM) years
we kept borrowing from tho future, un
til in 1582 we'd borrowed ten days.
Pope Gregory XIII. started to correct
this. He ordered October Ji, 1582, to
be called October 15, and, to square
thiugs, ordered that centurial years
should not, as a rule, be leap years.
But if leap year is omitted regularly
each hundredth year, we pay back
nearly a day too much; so Pope Greg
ory further ordered that every centurial
I vear which could be divided by 400
should be a leap year after all. So we
lorrow eleven minutes each year from
the future; more than pay our borrow
ings back by omitting three leap years
in three centuries, and finally square
matters by having a leap year in the
fourth centurial year. This arrange
ment is so exact that we borrow more
than we pay back to the extent of only
one day iu 3.8GG j-ears. Sixteen hun
dred was a leap year, 2000 will be, but
1900 will not be. Any centurial year
that can be divided by 100 will be a
leap year. Hartford Time.-:

of one of
Tne Carieas Wagers;
More than two centuries ago, the par
liament of Dole, in France, was called
upon-to decide a very curious wager.
It was between two citizens of Pasmes,
one of whom had agreed, on considera
tion of his being paid the sum oi
twenty-four francs, to furnish the oth
er with a quantity of millett, in propor
tion to the number of children that
should be born within a certain extent
of country during one year. He was to
hand over one grain for the first child,
two for tho second, four for tho third,
nnd so on, always doubling '.the number
of grains for each successive birth.
The number of children borne within
the specified time was sixty-six; ana
such an enormous quantity of grains of
millet had to be supplied to meet the
conditions of the agreement, that the
contracting party demanded the cancel
ing of the bet, on the gronnd that it
was founded on an impossible condition.
The court agreed at once that it was
impossible for the contract to be car
ried out; and decided that tho person
who had received the twenty-four franc 9
should repay them to his opponent',
and should give him an additional sum
of twenty-four francos. Surely thi",
was anything but a just judgment, for
it was impossible that the gainer coul-J
have lost. Ho made his calculation
aud was betting upon the ignorance of
tho loser; the wager was based upoi
bad faith, and should have been an
nulled altogether. A notable wager
was made early in the last century by &
French banker named Bulliot. He wars
a firm believer in the superstition thai
if rain falls on St. Swithin's day tht
fifteenth of July it will also fall mow
or less, for forty days after. So St
Swithin's day in the year 1725 was verv
wet ; and so Bulloit offered to bet ain
one who choose to put down his money,
tliat the next forty days would be rainy.
So many persons showed a desire to
take up the wager, that its terms were
reduced to writing as follows: "If dat
ing from St. Swithin's day. it rains
more or littlo during forty days nuc
cestiicely, Bulliot will bo considered to
have gained; but if it ceases to raiu for
only one day during that time, Bulliot
has lost." On these terms, Bulliot bet
against all who presented themselves.
He was so confident of success that ho
placed money against articles of value
of every description. "Wheu his stock
of cash came to an end he issued notes
aud bills of exchange. All this natur
ally excited a great deal of public curi
osity, and the rush man found himself
quite fashionable for the time being.
Verses were made in his honor, a play
u as produced which had him for its
hero: in a word, he attracted as- much
attention as if he had been a monarch
or a famous sta'esman. But, unfortu
nately for Bulliot, St. Swithin was not
true tu his character. For the first
twenty -one days of the stipulated time,
more or less rain fell. The twenty
second day, however, was bright and
cloudless, and night came on without
there beiug the slightest sign of rain.
Bulliot was ruined, and ruined so com
pletely that he was unable to meet the
notes and bills that bore his name.
The New York Ledger tells how a
spider provided for his comfort on tho
road. The insect cannot be suspected
of having taken a hint from Pullman,
but it seems as though some ingenious
person might contrive to apply the spi
der's plan to the lessening of human fa
tigue while making long journeys.
A doctor desired to send a fiue speci
men of the spider to a medical friend
who was exceedingly curious in the
study of such matters. As the readiest
means of transit, he enclosed it in a
common wooden box, and dispatched
the tiny traveler by express.
The box, however, was too roomy for
the spider's wants, and as he seemed to
have disliked the jolting incident to
traveling, he had recourse to a very in
When the box reached its destina
tion and the consiguce opened it, he
was equally surprised and delighted to
find that his insect charge had spun for
himself a superb hammock, securely
hung from the four corners of his prison
house, in which he had couched, in
sailor fashion, as softly as he does in his
Secretary Rusk's Bravery.
He was a brave oilicer dnring the war
and one of the stock stories about him
is the remark of General Mower, who
received him after his division had been
cut into" pieces by tho enemy, and he,
out of shot and shell, at Mower's com
mand, came to his headquarters. As
Colonel Busk saluted t! a General, tho
latter said : "I have sent for yon be
cause you are the only man in this
army, or any other army, that I ever
saw who could ride further into hell
than I can, and I want you to take a
drink with me."
"I thank you," said CVTlonel Busk,
"but I can't do that, as I nover drink."
"You don't. Well, I should like to
know how a man can ride so far into
hell without taking a drink. Do von
"Certainly I do." said Colonel Busk,
"and have not had a bite since morn
ing." The two then ate together and
their friendship continued until Mower's
death. Washington letter to The

The Vumlerhilt Charities.
It has never been published any
where, although it is a fact, that there
is a rule in each of tha Vanderbilt
households that, whatever the cost of
running the house, the same amount iu
each instance is given to the poor. This
rule is strictly observed in fact, a book
of expenses for this purpose is kept,
and in it are recorded all of the house
hold expenses, including even the hire
of servants and the cost of boxes at the
opera. So that whenever the expenses
of these families increase the donations
to the poor are increased corre"qodingly.
One can fancy how large these dona
tions must be from the statement that in
one of the families there are no less
than thirty servants, while all the family
expenses will run up to several hundred
thousand a year. When this amount is
given away at the end of the year there
will be little or no publicity given to the
fact of the magnificent donation. Even
with this doubling of expenses none of
the Vanderbilts is able to live up to his
imcome without investing large sums in

Nearly every jeweler lays down a
rule never to credit anybody for a clock

moreover, we firml believe tliat a

class of trade that is barred from the
credit list on account of a superstition.

A LOUISIANA FLOOD.
DeTastattag Erects of as Overflow f ike
The heart-rending and trsmsndouily
tragic scenes of a flood in a Mountain
gorge are wholly lacking in a Louisiana
flood, says the the New Orleans Picayune.
When a great levee breaks in our low
lands there is a terrible rush of waters at
the immediate scene of the crevasie'.-bttt a
short distance from tha locality the scenes
are entirely different.
The water does not go roaring and rag
ing thtongh m narrow valley, sweeping
everything before it. The yellow flood
pouring through the gap, often enlarged to
the width of miles, simply spreads over
the flat country, filling the vast shallow
basin that it really presents. Day
afttr day the turbid waters climb
np around and into the dwellings,
tho stables, the stock yards the
tugar houses, the cotton sheds, and gin
bouses, while the pastures and cultivated
ittltts are covered. The submersion goes
on until the country is inundated from
from four to twelve feet deep over vast
areas. The people retire to their upper
rooms, unless, as is often the case with
tho smaller dwellings, their inhab
itants aro floated away. The domes
tic animals encompassed by a sea
of waters perish by thousands from ex
haustion or starvation. The muddy water
deposits its silt in the houses and upon
the crowing crops, covering everything
iu its re.ich with a slimy mud. The coun
try roads are extinguished. tin bridges float
away, the railways are disabled, and boats
alone afford a means of communication
with the population beleaguered by the in
Many people ere drowned under these
unusual circumstances, many more sicken,
at d not a few' die from the exposure and
privations which they undergo, while tie
suffering for provisions is often so great
the destitute people over vast areas
of submerged country are dependent
on charity. The flooded region is
often twenty to fifty miles wide and
100 miles long, and in all
these limits there ia scarcely a
spot of dry ground. Such a state of things
may last one or two months before the
waters subside, and then dry land fit to
stand on, much less to plough, is slow iu
making its appearance.
Such is a Hood in Louisiana. If it has
not the overwhelmingly terrible and in
stantaneous cataclysmic features of a
Jchnttowu traedy,it is sufficiently deadly
and dreadful. Let it not bo considered
