upon the experiment.
The girl was still on the sidewalk as
the carriage stopped , and , without des

the child answered the signal.

the soitnstross , who is also a sort of
housekeeper in the establishment , with
directions that she bo fitted out with
Biiltable clothes , bo .looked after and in-
Btructed in light work , and brought to
her every morning at 9 o'clock. Ono
moro order followed. The spaniel , his
basket , and all his belongings wore to

Before she dined that evening Miss X.

morning's Interview Alary was not very
satisfactory ! She was found to bo very
ignorant and very uiionthusiastic. She
stolidly accented the favors already be
stowed and listened to future promibcs
without apparent gratitude or other
emotioa. Still Miss X. did not despair.
"Appreciation , " she said , "or at least
the expression of It Is culture , and poor
JIary comes from the gutter. "
On the afternoon of the same day , as
Hiss X. was dressing for dinner , word
came from the basement that Mary was
missing. Upon inquiry a few hours
before there had boon a ring at

turned and saw that it was a girl with a

absence was not noticed at first , but when
it was she could not be found on the
promises. Later , the coachman reported
that ho had foen Mary a block from the
house without hat or coat , scurrying
along with a girl her own size , evidently
a beggar child , and , said the follow , k'I

Thousands of singers have no doubt
.rendered . why the title pngo of "Mar-

ither famous works written by Mils au

reason for this omission was that Mr.
White had in his mind nn ideal picture
of a woman corresponding in all fomi-
iiino grace with his musical picture of
the ideal Marguerite. The composer
determined that when ho mot u living
woman who should nppronch his concep

Is the pianoforte wanning in popu
larity and giving place to the violin ?
Ono would not think so to see the
activity among the dealers in these in
struments on Tremont street , says the
Boston Advertiser. And yet it would
appear that the violin , especially as an
instrument for young girls , is rapidly in
creasing in popularity. The classes in
the violin at the music schools are grow
ing larger , and a "popular" concert to
day can hardly bo regarded ns popular
unless a young Italy violinist is included
among the "talent. " In England it is
said to have fairly taken Its place as nn
instrument for girls. After all the
pianoforte is ro'illy a very modern In
strument when compared with the violin.
It is only a harn faet in a box and
twanged with leather-covered hammers.
It is ically a mechanical sort of an niTnlr ,
while the violin has never within the
memory of living * man or woman boon

But a. violinl What divine melody
will pour forth under skillful fingers
from an old Stradivarius of Amnti ?
The wizard of Cremona possessed a secret
which no imitator , however keen , has
ever been able to fathom. Princes and
dukes , men of high renown and modern
money kings luvvo scrambled for the
possession of the fowraro products of his
cunning. Stradivarius died moro than a
hundred and fifty years ago , but the few
violins and 'cellos which still exist to
enchant the ear of the world nro worth
their weight in gold. The master of the
pianoforte is a skillful mechanician ,
with agile , supple lingers and uti ncuto
musical instinct. The master or mistress
of the violin is itnbuod with dlvino fire ,
the gift of the gods.
The slender waist has blddon us nUiou.

nnd the late duchess of Devonshire's
waist of an orange and a half nro not the
ideal figures of today. The Dolsarto
maiden , who supports this opinion , will
refer you to the Modlcian Venus , the
most celebrated of the Grecian statues.
A single glunco will convince you of the
fallacy of these Ideas of beauty which
have been formed by the advocates and
admirers of small waists and slender fig
ures. The body and lluibs of that paragon
of beauty are round nnd full. Examine
still further and suppose for n moment
that the Mcdlclnn Venus were to bo
placed In the hands of one of our flrat
rate dressmakers to bo Invested with the
usual quantity of clothing now worn , all
fitted perfectly to the shape. The result
would satisfy us that modern forms pro

health as well as to beauty , and boar no
analogy to that lovely , graceful and ex
quisitely beautiful model of antiquity.
Whatever is mean or scanty in tiaturo
or in art can novcr bo beautiful.

dispatch. It is constructed according to

Dakota. , and is intended for use in the
small villages along the railroads in that
section of tlio country.

side , midway the two extremes , is a
slight projection , gothle in form , which
rises to the height of what is known as
the second deck. This , Bishop Walker
saysj is for giving the car moro the ap
pearance of a church.
The car is sixty feet lontr and ton feet
wide. Its interior is finished in oak
after the gothic stylo. At one end is a
oo m devoted to the bishop's use. The
main body of tlio car church contains a
chancel , altar , lectern , baptismal font , a
bishop's chair and a cabinet organ.

termined to make practical use of it.

inhabitants , the residents of which nro
now practically barred from church

ten days or so In advance that lam com

circuit. The car will bo attached to
freight trains and switched olT at such
stations as I may designate , wuich are
from seven to ton miles apart. "
"Is the car-church intended for Epis
copalians ulonoY" '
"No , indeed. It is for nil who care to
attend roligiom sot-vices. My cathedral
cur , as I call it , is by no means denomi
national. Much , in fact nearly all , of
the furnishings of the car are gifts. The
lectern nnd bible are both donated as
memorials , the font is the gift of a New
York Sunday school , and the other
things cnmo from dllToront sources. The
car will bo shown to a few Chicnjio people -
plo Tuesday , and on Wednesday it and
myself will begin the journey to our mu

Bishop Walker is churchman of na

ance the diocese of North Dakota has
grown steadily , parishes and member

Chestnuts for .Markets.
Samples of American chestnuts , su
perior to these of foreign growth both In
size and flavor , have recently boon ro-
colved at the department of agriculture ,
affording a striking illustration of the
results of culture and selection. By
these means It is believed that the ma
turity of the chestnut likewise may bo
materially hastened. Reports received
from various sections of the
country milieu to that the nut may bo
bebt prepared for market by being im
mersed in boiling water for about ton
minutes ns soon ns gathered. Wormy
nuts will lloat on the biirfaco and may
bo removed ; nil otrgs and lavto of Insects
will bo destroyed ; and the condition of
the meat of the nut will bo bo changed
that it will not become flnty by
further curing for winter use ,
and still lie in no wise a "boiled
chestnut. " The nuts may bo dried in
the sun or in dry houses after being
placed in sacks in such .quantities as to
admit of their being spread to the thick
ness of about two inches , the sacks being
frequently turned and shaken. Dried by
this method they remain qulto tender ,
rotaln the qualities for a long time thai
make them desirable in the fall , and
may bo safely stored : but , ofcourso , wll :
not germinate. A bulletin on nut culture
is being prepared by the division ol
