Mr. Sidney Moore,
"Surely my pathetic appeal would
touch a heart of stone, and I havo very
little iciiROti to think iMr. Moore hard
hearted," thought Nannie, whilo
faint blush crept into her face.
Nannio Raymond was vixitintr her
school friend, Kate Moore. Tho for
mer bad been making a prolonged trip
through Europe, and, on her return,
was spending a littlo timo iu New
York bqforo going to her southern
home. AVhilo at school Nnnnlo had
formed a strong friendship for Kate,
but had not met the rest of the family.
On the steamer she had often specula
ted as to what Kate's homo would bo
like. She knew that Mrs. Mooro had
died when Kate was but a child j that
Mr. Mooro had been very successful in
business ; nnd that his son, Sidney,
was an editor on the Btaff of a promi
nent magazine. Consequently he must
be very learned, very near-sighted, and
quito old. So often had she pictured
him to herself that he became 11 real
ity. At dinner, on tho day of her arrival,
Kato said : "Nannie, I want to intro
duce you to my brother."
Nannio looked up at the handsome
man who was entering tho room, and,
after greeting him, turned quickly to
her friend and said, with comic dis
may : "Why, Kate, you told 1110 he
was an editor I"
Mr. Mooro was very much amused
at Nannie's evident surprise, and om
barrassnient, and bantered her about it
Several days later Mr. Mooro was
tolling Nannio somo of his experiences
as an editor ; among which ho men
tioned the numerous letters that he ro
ceived from people who offered to give
him their history, provided he should
write it up tor the macazinp, thov nav-. p
ing the pecuniary help and he the
glory. He then added : "If these peo
ple would only become stenographers
or typo writeis they might bo of somo
use to a magazine. Vliv, only to-day
I advertised for a stenographer."
INannic immediately conceived a
Hchemo by which sho would punish
him for tho discomfiture he had caused
her on her nriival. SLo would answer
the advertisement. Ho had told her
what kind of letters were most effect-
ve, nnd bIio could not doubt but that
ho would givo her appeal some atten
tion. ."Mr. Mooro becatt receiving innumer
able answers to his advertisement.
Ono aspiring stenographer assured him
that she was very prettv, and could
play on tho piano. Another said that
sho could not write very well, but
would soon learn. Ono morning Mr.
Mooro came up to tho desk of another
editor, and exclaimed, triumphantly :
"1 have it, frank I Just the kind of
girl one likes to help, too.''
'.Nonsense, Jloore. 1 on ro entirely
too sympathetic. You havo been'kept
1 state of chronic disgust all tho
week by tho epistles you havo received,
"Just read this letter yourself," nnd
he handed it to his friend :
To the Editoii op Maoazini
Dear iSir : I saw your advertisrment

answer it, hoping that I may obtain a
hearing. 1 tear that 1 am but ono

not inflict upon you my sad personal

to support myself or become dependent
on charity. Ihis fact gives me no
claim upon your time, but, 111 view of
what might happen, 1 have perlected
myself in stenography, and think I
can honestly say that I could do tho
work you require. 1 nm, very respect-

"By Jovo 1 Mooro, vou havo indeed
been successful. I envy you tho op
portunity to give such a girl a ohance."

That evening ho told Miss Raymond

clnimed : "Havo you heard about

"Oh, sho was to call to-day. Tell

"Instead of tho visit Mooro was bo

A New Eival to the Diamond
Tho now precious gem discovered n
couple of years ago in a raino about
titty miles distant from isridgcwntcr,
N. C, and known as Hiddcnite, is said
to bo almost equal to the diamond. It
is placed next to it, and at present su
perior to it on account of Us scarcity.
This gem is of a clear, beautiful grass-
green tint, sparkles like a diamond, nnd
is very hard. Thoy vary, when cut,
from a fraction of a carat to about jsix
or seven carats, nnd. tho demand for
them at S125 to 150 for a carat stono
is far greater than tho supply, and
comes chielly from Europe, though
many wealthy persons in Now York
and Now Jersoy havo bought them.

Women Wno Earn Their Living.
Tho field of employment of women
is constantly increasing, says tho iNow
York J-Jvetiinit Post, but, as the candi
dates for positions multiply, tho wages
decrease. Women, who fivo years ago
wcro enabled to make from 818 to $'22
a week In somo special branch where
men had thertolore been employed,
now aro paid from to $15. Still,
ns the occupation for women multiply,
more livings are mado in dcsirnblo and
womanly employments than over bo-
fore. Among tho better paying occu-
lations for young women, typo-writ-

another way of producing what I
wanted, I plowed narrow and deep
say nine inches furrows very late
in the autumn, nnd in February I sow
