"1 do wnmler why tin wo little savages are
allowed Li make a roasting hill of the |atl>-
lie highway grumbled an uneoiiimonly
pretty girl, as she besltaLsl in great pertur
bation half way up the improvised slide
It was an irregular and rather preeipi
tons eross street of a suburban village. It
was treacherously icy ami swarming witli
juvenile roasters, one of whom had carried
a strip of silkisl ruby tlounee with him as
lie darted past her.
"It is quite list had ! ami my very liieest
dress, too," she romplaimsl, mentally, as
she stopped to draw lack and pin together
the damaged bit of drapery.
In the nunoyanceof the moment she did
not reflect that something more unpleasant
war quite |iotwible If she were not vigilant.
She w'tis quite too rugroased to hear ls>y
ish shouts of warning in the road above Iter,
or to sis* au agile figure that was springing
aflVightodly toward her.
A big sh*d freighted with half a dozen
reckless urchins, had startisl down tin*
tempting dix-eiit ; on the glassy track it had
liocouic partly titiiuiiuagcable ; in a second
more it would lie tqioii her unless she Inssl
those warning shouts or a miracle 1 titerisis
*il to save her.
Uefore she really had tiuic to comprehend
her |s*ril or understuml the sudden, shrill
vociferation, there wtis a wild w birring in
the air aikl a tiugliug sluK'k, ami tin* next
instant stie felt herself violently w liiriisl a
side by a strong arm whirl) had seized her
as the sled Hew past.
The agile figure of a manly pedestrian,
whose affrighted gestures she had not no
ticed, had Hung himself lietwecu her and
death, or worse, and site was safe.
As she strugghsl to lu*r feet a cry of grat
itude and pity quivered from her starth*d
She fully realized what her jieril had l**cn
and her pity was for licr handsome rescuer,
who wits lying stunned and bruised and
bleeding before her.
"Oh, what can I soy to you ?—what can
I do ?" sin* faltered, in a distressing voice,
as she Lent over him.
His handsome features were alarmingly
pallid, and there were tiny drops of warm
ml blood staining the frozen snow which
pillowed his fallen htuul.
Hut the bright dark eyes enclosed with a
Hashing smile which was delightfully tran
"Say only that I have made a charming
friend," he smiled, as with a wince of pain
he uplifted himself to a sitting jmature. "I
am not badly hurt. 1 have a surface gash
on my cheek, 1 think, and I have a notion
there is a sprained limb. I shall uot lc
able lo get to my destination—that's cer
tain," he added, as lie made an heroic at
tempt Li stand uprigh, only to siuk liuck
again with a suppressed groan.
.lust then the hig sled was hauled hack
up the str*ct, the reckless coasters all jieiii
tent and terrified, and eager to render every
A helpful idea brightened the girl's aux
"It would IK* an hour Imfore pnqier as
sistance could lie brought to you here," she
said, in her quick, sweet, girlish voice.
"Hut there is a dear, motherly old lady liv
ing in that little cottage at the top of the
hill. Ist the lmys put you on the sled ami
take you up to her. She is my friend and
she will lo whatever I wish."
And so a few minutes later the injured
young gentleman was snugly ensconced on
a cosy lounge of the rosy little cottage and
a physician had Is*n sent for.
"Ah, you will Is* all tight again in a few
days," the doctor said, cheerfully, "only
you must kis*p yourself jK*rfeetly quiet, and
not try to exert yourself in any way."
"I can reconcile myself to the situation
easily if you will promise to clier my im
prisonment occasionally," the gentleman
said, with one of his Hashing smiles toward
the pretty girl, who readily promised what
he weined so eagerly to desire. '
And that was the lieginning of pretty
Doritnla Grey's acquaintance with the
handsome young stranger whom she had
exalted to a hero —a king among men.
lie had done only what any other man
would have done in similar circumstances.
He had simply snatched her away from the
track of the fiving sled. He had )K*r*eived
no risk to ldinself,no sacrifice :he liad lieen
safely heyoml any col lit* ion with the coaster
—it was his own awkward stumble on the
treacherously glassly incline which had
caused his mishap. The js ril was over
w hen he had slip]M*d tt]>on one of liis heels
and fallen. It might havehappeued just the
same even if he had not hastened gallantly
to the rescue of a distract I ugly pretty girl.
Hut these were trilling little truths which
he did not deem absolutely necessary to re
veal. It was too pleasant to iose as a
wounded hero, and to have his tenqiorary
confinement enlivened by the visits of his
graceful and iiitesting new acquaintance.
For his own sake he preferred not to siKii!
her little illusions on the subject.
And so Doritnla went homeward, taking
with her the image of an elegant figure and
handsome countenance of a fascinating
young stranger, whose tones were like mu
sic. whose smile was like a Hash of sun
light, whose brilliant black eyes had gazed
admiringly, almost tenderly, into Iter own.
Her own great brown eyes were bright as
stars, cheeks Hushed with a curiously wa
vering rose tint, as she at length entered
the fine old yellow stone mansion a the fur
ther end of the village street.
"What on earth lias kept you so long
Dodo ?" queried a tall and stately young
lady In an elegant morning dress of Sevres
blue satin. "Did they have the kind of
paehn braid I wanted at the store ?—or did
you forget your errand, and stay all this
time gossiping with that simple old Mrs.
The rose tint deepened to crimson on Do
do's pretty cheeks, hut she did no choose to
explain what had deterred her at Mrs. Mer
ron's cottage on the hill
"I couldn't get the braid, Gretta ; they
don't keep it," she answered. "It is a bon
net braid, anyhow, and that wouldn't do
for your dress."
"A lionnet braid ! dear me ! How stupid
a dressmaker can be !" Gretchen exclaimed,
impatiently. "Hut if she will only have
the dress finished somehow by the time Mr.
Lestrange gets here I won't grumble about
minor blunders. And now, Dodo, do ho o
hliging and help me with the trimmings of
the ancient hall gown."
"It is too ancient to lie rejuvenized, Gre
ta ; it ought, to he replaced by a uew gown
altogether," said Dodo, looking with decid
ed resistance at the Risk suggested.
"It tle)H*nds on yott. Dodo, whether we,
any of us, ever have anything new again,"
sighed a faded little woman from her inva
lid ehair Is-fore the lire.
I lotto looked distressed, and all tile lovely
color suddenly paled from Iter pretty
"th utility, how dis s it depend on me ?"
she falterisl, although she guessed what the
"1 think you will never quite forget the
hours which we have p:uuusl together here,"
lie said, with seemingly a regretful glance
around the room, ami at motherly Mrs.
Merrou, asleep owr her kiiitting U*fore the
flic. "They have lmen hour, to lie remem
herisl by lsth of us.'
He had Wut over her until his dark mus
tache brushed her forehead ; he hurl clasped
lsitli her hands. There was the tenderest
signitieance in his musical tones ; the fas
cination of what seemed teiuleroat love
gl iwed in the lirilliant eyes.
Dodo trendihsl. She liad made him her
hero 'undoubtedly ; hut in that instant
her w hole ls-ing recoiled from him. Why,
she could not have explained ; she only
knew she was amused somehow to n true
knowledge of her own feelings. He h;ul
eliurmtsl her faneies for the mouieut, js-r
--lrajis, liut no love —sweet and supreme—
would ever thrill her soul for him.
"I ought to have gone la-fore," he contin
ued, uneasily, aa if he were dreading some
reproach from Dodo herself. "Hut I was
hardly presentable with a pulled ami pur
ple bruise decorating a graally half of my
eouuL-tiance. And my destination is near
er than you guessed, Dodo ; my dear little
girl, you and 1 are to meet again, and
Dodo noticed the uneasiness of his tones,
his entire, changed expression, ami with a
sudden quick instinct she gruK]>od the

brown eyes. "You are my cousin Greta's
He liowcd in a manner so conscious and
embarrassed that all Dodo's houcst little
sou! arose to hot iudigiiatioti against him.
He was no longer a hero in her sight. He
was an insincere, shallow tritier, who had
amused himself with her simple blushes at
his practiced flattery.
Stub sublime audaeitv, such consummate
falsity, stunned her. With a look of with
ering scorn she turned and left him in utter
"1 pity Greta, cross and selHsh as she is,"
Dodo thought, as she went slow ly up the
steps of the old yellow stone mansion.
As she entered the pleasant family sit
ting-room Greta pressed rudely and sullen
ly jiast her and tripix*] up the stairs.
Mrs. Gray was weeping almost convul
sively in her invalid chair before the fire.
"What has hap|iened, aunty ?" the girl
queried, anxiously and affectionately.
Dodo was sincerely attached to her inva
lid aunt, whose trials had, indeed, been
many nud grievous.
"It is that mortgage," was the ]fctoous
answer. "There is to be an immediate fore
closure. We shall IK* absolutely homeless ;
there won't IK* f 100 left after the sale. I
don't care for myself, nor so much on
Greta's account—she can earn her own liv
ing if she chooses ; hut there are the jxsir
children —Tommy and Willy ! What will
become of them ?"
D<HIO stopped and kissed her aunt in get*.-
tle sympathy, hut she was silent.
"Dodo, I can't ask you to do anything
that might make you unhappy," the weep
ing woman resumed, "and it acems cruel to
remind you that 1 have leeu like a mother
to you. Hut, my dear, if you only would
consider everything and then decide to do
what 1 would like. Ami David is waiting
for you, dear. He is in the parlor now."
Dodo's pretty face fiush*d with a sudden
sense of her own lack of feeling for others.
She had not considered everything as she
might have done—that was certain.
Mrs. Grey liad indeed lieon like a mother
to her. In her orphaned and penniless
childhood slie had leen taken into the fam
ily as one of their, own. She had shared and
shared alike with tlietn in everything ; no
hint of her dependence had ever lieen per
mitted to pain her. Even the selfish and
sometimes disagreeable Greta liad treated
her entirely as a sister. Ami when the dear
kind uncle left them she mourned him as
one who had lieen to her like an indulgent
The flush hal vanished from her pretty
cheeks ; her face was jxtle and her large
brown eyes very serious as she opened the
|>arlor door and advanced rather timidly to
ward the gentleman waiting for Iter.
The serious eyes dropped and her voice
choked as she glanced at the earnest face
and fine Saxon looking figure of her patient,
How could she have tried to shut Iter fool
ish heart against the love of one all noble
and loyal ever she wondered ?
But she meant to lie frank with him ; site
would confess all her folly—she would even
tell him aliout that dreadful mortgage, and
then, if he loved her no longer she could
not hlatne him.
He misinterpreted the agitation of the
pale face, ami checked the confusion before
it was begun.
"I am not here to hurry your answer, Do
do !" he saiii very gently. "You shall have
your own time about that,' my darling. I
have come on quite a different errand. I
have just learned that your aunt has lieen
threatened with some financial trouble, and
I have ventured to adjust the matter by
buying the mortgage. I know how hard it
would IK* for her to give up her old home,
and how hard it would IK* for you to see lier
in such distress when she lias always lieen
such a good mother to you. And I just
took the afiair in my own hands and her
trouble is ended. "Why, Dodo, my little
love, what Is this ?" he finished in surprise.
For Dodo had suddenly Hung herself face
downward on the sofa, and was crying its if
lier heart would break.
"And it was the mortgage which haul
come between you and me, David," she
cried, with a nervous laugh mingling with
the sound of tears. "I wouldn't marry you
just because poor aunty wanted your help
alKiut it, and I tried to hate you, and "
"And you couldn't," he interrnped, in a
voice shaken with its sudden deep gladness,
as he took her in his arms and kissed the
wet eyes and quivering lips.
And so David Carlyon won his bride."
Greta became eventually the wife of her
elegant Mr. Lestrange, and regards herself
as the most fortunate of women.— New York

Ho was fresh from the wilds of
Michigan and on his first visit to New
York. His city cousin had been
showing him the sights of the great
city, and it was evening when they
turned up Union square.
'See the bright light away up on
that pole ?' asked the cousin.
'Ayupl' said John.
'Well, that's the big electric light.'
John was much interested ; and
thrusting bis bands into his pockets,
he gazed long and earnestly at the
'Purty, ain't it ?' he said at last in
an admiring tone. 'Cut, George,'

A happy feature of the school sys
tem iu Germany and Switzerland, and
one worthy of the consideration of
other countries, is what are known as
heat holidays. When the temperature
reaches a certain height, a holiday is
proclaimed and is welcomed with de
light by the pupils. These holidays
are provided tor by law in both public
and private schools. At Basle, when
ever the thermometer indicates It de
grees in the shade at 10 o'clock in the
morning, the school is dismissed.

The Vast ling gage Depot*—ltalian
and Irish—Mulberry Street.
I put in the afternoon tho other day
at Castle Garden, and the view was
novel. There is first the great rotun
da, which the immigrants enter di
rectly from the steamer ; on each
flunk of this are the balls and rooms
for separating and classifying them
and the vast baggage depots. Pro
vision stands supply focd at rates pre
scribed by the commissioners, gener
ally cheaper than in the city outside ;
interpreters for the principal languag
es stand ready to give information, and
in the center is the bank where for
eign money is exchanged for Ameri
can at a trifling cost. Between the
rotunda and the park are the offices,
w here the name, race and destination
of each immigrant is enrolled; the
post office, where the names are loud
ly called from time to time of those
whom letters await, and the various
rooms for washing and other purpos
es. All sick persons are sent to Ward's
Island to a hospital. Missionaries, a.
geuts of benevolent societies, hotel
runners and news paper men Lave the
i freedom of the floor nnder person bed
rules ; and all the officials are polite
and prompt in giving information.
All around the rotunda are groups of
immigrants, the Italians predominat
ing , for most of the Irish are met by
friends and acquaintances, and only
remain long enough to get their bag
Imagine, if you can (I cannot de
scribe it), the amusing and affecting
scenes, as the Irish long in this coun
try meet the new arrived—the ardent
embrace, the poetic expressions of en
dearment, the smiles, the laughter,
the tears- The Italians appear dull
and uninteresting ; those longest in
this city seem as much like foreigners
as those just arrived. They are near
ly all from the south of Italy ; nearly
all took ship at Naples, and are dis
tressingly swarthy in
plain language, dirty. Now and then
a Piedmonter or Venetian appears
like white Bos tonian among a lot of
quadroons. As the brown Napolese
go up town theirappearance is distresr
ing,especially tbewomenjbut those resi
dent on Mulberry street look even worse.
I passed a group of the latter this
morning—skinny, swarthy old women
bareheaded, barefoo ted, stooping un
der the weight of heavy bags filled
with papers and other staff gleaned
from about the offices ; and occasion
ally I meet them loaded down with
broken boards, barrel hoops and
staves—tbe wreckage from a recent
fire or removal. They carry this
stuff away up in the small tenement
bouses to their little dens where they
splinter and pack it into little pack
ages of lighters or kindling. What
can life be worth to such people? And
ret tbey don't seem in any hurry to
die.—J. 11. Beadle in Rockville Trib
Slang in Texas.
Yesterday afternoon a well-known
gentleman in this city was discussing
with a News represent ative the preva
lence of slang in the country.
"Just to show you how almost uui
versal it is becoming we will test it
right here. It is raining, and we
will stand in this door and to every
person of your acquaintance who pass-"
es by you will put this question: Isn't
this rain glorious ?" and note their
Tbe pair stood in tbe door, the
gentleman, watch in hand, and the
News representatiyo with note book
and pencil ready. Thirty-fivegentle
men passed by, to whom the query
was put Thirty-one of them replied:
"You bet." One said; "I should smile"
Two said: "She is getting there with
both feet;" and tbe other remarked:
"Go long 'Lisa Jane."
There were others who later went
scudding by. One responded: "|
should snicker to remark." Another
smiled broadly: "Young ducks aiu 't
a circumstance." A third caroled:
''Bet your sweet life;.'' and the fourth
lisped bewitchingly: "If anybody
asks you, tell 'em you don't know."
The gentleman standing with the re
porter said : "Well that do settle it."
"And her front name ifaras Hannah,"
sighed the reporter.—Dallas News.
Taking the .Census.
'I have a scheme to make some
money when the next census is taken
in Dakota,' said one Sioux Falls man
"What is it V
'Why, I'll make a proposition to the
legislature to take the census of the
towns at $5 per town and make a
whole barrel of money.'
'Why, you couldn't make a cent at
'Could'nt, hey ? Well I know I
could get rich at it. I can take the
census of a town tor fifty cents. You

bitch up a sick horse and drive it out
on tbe main street and let it lie down,
and then after five minntes I'll get up
on the wagon and count' em' Da
