They had been invited to a im-rry-nm-kini;
ut a neiKhbor's and M-illy was

Xcllie would ba shocked at the gty
roniiing nanii'si she bad jiownai cus

liom tho stately laiiic'" she had wit
ncHsed at Nellie's city home.
About seven o'clock the uirl llitied
down the stairs to thn miuintei's study.
"Well, uncle, do I look liko a city
uirl now 1"
The tratHlorniatioii was eoinpltte.
Heforo she had dlsaipertreil from tho
lea table she w.n a perfect specimen of
a beautiful New York u'nl from tiiu
l"p (which wasn't very far off) of her
pufl-ci owned bead to tho tip of her
French kid hoot, which peeped from a
dress of threo niarvehmsly mingled
ehades. Now a demure" maiden stood
before him in a simple, neatly-fitting
while duss. A blue ecaif was tied
around her waist and her hair, arrang
ed in four heavy curls, drooping to tho
ends of tho sack, was tied back from
the sparkling faco with a blue ribbon.
'Whv, little niece, befoio supper you

"That's jut what 1 wauled j on to
say, uncle. Molly is afraid I won't en
iov myself; but I'm gome to show her.
, Doesn't shy look nice t I'm afraid the
j young farmers won't look at mo.1'
j "Now, Nell, no tlatleVy 1 Come, we
' don't make a point of being late. Come,
I father I"
Tho immense room which had been
cleared of all furniture except chaiis,
was well filled. Nellie was much
amused by tint way the youths all got
by themselve", . as far from the gills as
tbey could; Lul she restrained her
smiles and took ob ervntiniH instead.
Among the young men she noticed
many tall, splendidly developed figures,
with' fine heads and intelligent faces,
who were evidently longing for the re
straint to'be .broken. Shu could not
help comparing them with the gentle
' men of her set nt home the bewhis
kered exquisites among whom she
had searched for an original idea.
Nellie's little head held a good deal
rf common fonse ; although one of a
glittering social circle, she had always
taken tho glitter for what It was woith,
knowing that theru wero 1 etter things
I5ut now affairs began to grow live
lier. Somo one proposed blindman's
buff, and a moiry scurrying around bo
can. Nellie had plenty to do to keep
herself from being caught, for it was
no feint at tho ancient game. At
length her turn came, ami tho blind
man touching ono of thu thick curls,
swiil instantly : "Miss Molly's friend.''
So she stood quietly for her iyes to be
, liaudaged, anil then Willi a quick
spring, caught some one standing m ar.
liul that was judged not fair, so she
was turned around and asked : "How
manv horses has your father t" and set
free. A long chase and her fiiigors en
countered Rnmrtliing. It was a coat
sleeve, and Nellie's little hand straying
up taitlier lelt a s'lky whisker. JNow,
Nellie had been introduced to a fine,
nnuly fellow, with brown whiskers, so
nhe guessed it must be he; and so it
wa -"Mr. Grey."
The game piocieded amid laugh and
shout, until, breathless, they stopoed
Then tho forfeits began. Twirl the
platter was plajed, and .Nellie was
forced to give up tho ribbon which
bound her curls. In suspense she
heard her sentenro pronounced :
"Tno lady must take a genth man
and walk around thn house twice; tho
second t'mo they may kiss and come
in. John (Jrev is the gentleman "
'Oh, M .lly 1" Nellie whispered, "I
can't ! I had rather stay in here and
do it. if I must."
"Nellie, you said you'd be a country
gill, just as the rest. Them isn't one
hero hut would give her oyes to bo in
So Nellie, poor child, was escoiled
by her lall cavalier out, amid the great
laughter of the company.
Once they walkul around tho bouse,
nnd when they reached the door the
scond timu John Grey stopped and
"Miss Munroo, I will releasu yon
from this pait of tho forfeit if you
wMi; although it would give mo the
most intense pleasure to tako it.''
Looking up, Nellie met bit eyes
looking down at her with nn inexplica
ble look She murmured something
about "very kind,'' and he continued :
"The only recompense I fhall nk
will be the privilege of escorting you
homo this evening, and of keeping this
ribbon when you have done with it "
Nellie liul up her curls, and they
walked back very composedly among
the waiting young people. Tho evou
ing ended with tho "ugly mug," a
dunce by all, standing as in tho Vir
ginia reel, nil singing and acting :
"I put my uglv mug in,
I put my ugly mug nut,
I give my ugly mug shake. shake,shake,
And turn myself about."
John Grey valked homo with tho
cousin, and Nellie, slippod the, ribbon
into his hand at parting.
Lovo at first sight thorn may not bo
such a thing; but it oertiiuly happens
that when two pure souls look through
oioh oi Iter's eyes, tho world is never
quit-1 tho sauio after that.
Mr. Grey was a different stamp of
ut.vi fr"m any Nollio had met before.
Unsuspicious Molly answered NeJ.

When , Nellie's elegant costume
ceased to make their appearance, and
her dainty cambric morning tlresos
were kept on nil day, and John Grey
began to drop in the puponagi; sitting
room quite often Molly began to

Hal Molly's month was stopped with
ft kiss, while Nellie said :
"Now, Cousin Molly don't spoil my

The parsonage sitting-rcom began

Then bis thoughts would wander

a litllo figure, with brown curls, flitting
through tho looms, leaving tokens of
nor presence everywhere. Then he
.vtmld start up and tako his hat, affec
tionately kissing bis mother, and say
ing he would bo buck soon.
And Nellie her face no longer
sparkled, but a soft light bad come
over it, miking her so beautiful, Dr.
munroo s.aul :
Lit tin niece, you should come to us

"You eauoy uncle 1 So you think 1
"1 mean ir. heallh, child; you know I

fllolly, growing wiser, saw the
change, too, and sighed toheisrlf. She,
too, hail liked .John tirey; but she was
too sensible a girl to feel badly for
what could not bo helped, and that
sigh changed into one of pity for Nel
be; For Molly knew Nellie's wealthy
parents and their proud lovo for their
But Nellie's father wrote her now to
"come home, she hud been away long
enough;'1 and that evening sho walked
with John (ti-ov down to the gale.
There, with the moonlight shining
softly down, she told him sho was go
ing home tho next da).
After a pause, ho said :
"Miss Muuroe, your visit hero has
made this summer very pleasant to mo,
ai:d I am loth our aiquaiiitauce should
cease.' May I call on you, when you
have returned to your homoi"
That was all. Nellie felt her heart
stop beating, and she stood silont for an
instant, and then drawing heiself tip,
she held out her hand.
"Certainly, Mr. Grey. I should bo
most happy to see you. Good-by."
"Ah, NVIlie. ! darling, not good by,
until I tell you something more.''
Aud then the moon heard tho "old,
old story," n. sweet as when it was
first told in tho bowers of Eden. Tru
ly, Eden comes back again at such
times to lovers, and lasts to those thai
love faithfully until they pass lrom life
to tho better Eden above.
"t'shall como and get your parents'
consent very soon. I bopo they will
not think I acted dishonorably in gain
ing their daughter's lovo when away
from them; but I could not help it''
Then Nellie felt a shock, as sho
thought what might her father and
mother say. Her ardent feelings bal
carried her willingly along; but' now,
for tho first time, with dismay, sho
thought of what sho might, bo call
ed o i to bear.
But youth is always hopeful, so
she said nothing to her lover of her
'Yes, John, como as soon as yon
can. I shall waut to seo yon very
much. Take this to put with the rib

Honestly, Nel'io told all when

but for her mother's sympathy sho
would bo desolate indeed. Sho wrote
to her lover how things wero and asked

in tho drawing room, was silent; for

That year had boon a disastrous one
for busino-s. Many wealthy firms ot

bad ruined others. Mr. Munroo had

A celebrated New York physician
told tho Tribune, a year ago, that
pneumonia was a secondary disorder,
tho exposure and cold being simply
the agent which develops tho disease,
al ready dormant in the system, because j
the kidneys havo been but partially
doing their duty. In short, pneumonia
is but an early indication of a briglit's
diseased condition. This impaired ac
tion may exist for years without the
patient suspecting it because no pain
will bo felt in tho kidneys or their vi
ciuity and often it can bo detected only
by chemical and microscopical exami

A correspondent to tho Now York

coveries madi) near Capernaum, Halb

Our wav took ns duo north across
tho foriilo plain of Hutaiha, which
"t"ewbal liko the plain of Gennes
nn lb. Both are well watered and ex
tremely fei tile. Hutaiha has the lar
gest and most proui'nent brooks, Gen
ncsaietb tho most numerous and nbun
dant springs. Tho old traveller, Burek
hardt, says that tho Arabs of tho Hu
taiha havo tho earliest cuctimbcis and
melons in all this region. It was on
Ibis plnin, at the foot of tho hill or
"lell" we were now Approaching, that
Josephus fought the Romans under
Sylla, concerning wltich battle ho says:
'1 would havo performed great things
that day if a certnm fato had not been
my hitidinncc, for tho horso on which
I rode nnd upon whoso back I fought
fell into a quagmire and tin ew ins i to
the ground, and I was bruised on my
wrist and was carried into a certain
village culled Cttphernomo or Caper
naum." Tho tell which iie from this plnin
about a mile and a half from thu bike,
is thickly strewn with ruins, consisting
of hewn blocks of black basalt, with
which in tho ancient times all tho
bouses in this region were consiruciod ;
but as yet no traces of any large build
ing have boon discovered. It has, in.
deed, been very laroly visited, but it Is

Indeed, one is much struck in ex
ploring tho ruins of tho country by the
limited areas which they cover. I am
afraid to say how many sites of mined
towns I havo visited, certainly nut less
than forly ; nnd I think one could
ctowd them nil into the area occupied
by tho uiiiis of ono largo Egyptian
city Arsino" in tho Fiiyoum, f r in

race which occupied tho country in the

vorito baiitil of Christ an 3 His disci
ples. Leaving lit Ti II ou our left, wo fol
trout stream, ou which on some moro
propitious, occasion I prop.isn to cast a
fly. M anlime, even had I been pro
vided with tho requisilo tackle, I
should have been.obliged to forego the
temptation. It was on tho steep rise
of a hill, about a hundred yards from
the river, that my guide suddenly stop,
pod. Hern was a small collection of
Arab hovels, recently constructed, and
it was in their search for stone, lat
I summer, that the nalivt s had for tho
first timo uncovered the ruin which
now met my delighted gaz.
I found my&clf in tho presence of a
building the character of which I had
yet to determine, tho walls 'of which
were still standing to a height of eight
feet. The area they enclosed was
thickly strewn with building stones,
Iratments of column", pedestals, oapi
tals, nml cornices Two at least of tho
columns wire in situ, while Iho bases
of others wero loo much concealed by
piles of stone to enable mo to deter
mine their original positions. My first
impression, from tho character of iho
architecture which was strewn about,
was i bat this was formerly a Roman
temple; but a further nnd more e.atd
fid examination convineid in that it
had originally been a Jewish syna
gogue, which at a later period had
, been converted to ano'lier use ; prob
ably it had been appropriated by tho
Byzantines as a basilioia or Christian
church. This was tho more probable,
'as tbo existing walls had evidently
been bu'lt upon the foundations of a
former structure. The massive stones
wero set in mortar, which is not tho
case with the svnagognes hitherto dis
covered ; nnd I should doubtless havo
I been completely nt fault in classing
' this building bad mv attention not

I was now fortunately in a position
to compare the dimensions, ground

attached fluted columns, with Dorio

found nt Irbid. Tho two columns in
situ exnetly answer in position those
ol several of tho synagogues, and
though tho position of tho door, which
was in tho lentrc of iho western wall,
was somewhat unusual, this was ac
counted for by tho fact that tho build
ing bad been "excavated from tho hill
side, so that tho top of tho east wall,
nluo feet of which was still slandiiip',
wns level with tho surfnee of tho slopo
of the hill.
Tho only convoniont cntrnnco was

interesting locality wns Eddikkih, a
spot hitherto tinvlsited by any travel
ler. Indeed, if it had been visited, it
would havo btcn passed unnoticed, for
lia antiquarian treasures navo only
been revealed for the first timo a few
months ago. Tho word Eddikkih
means "platform," a name, considering
Its position, not inappropriate ; but I
have not been able to identify it with
any Biblical site.
The area ot ruins apart from tboso
of tho synagogue itself was not veiy
laige, but the situation was highly pic
turesque. II ilf a mile to the north of
rthero we stood tho Jordan forces its
way through a gorge which I hopo
somo day to explore, while immediate
ly below us it rushed between numer
ous small islets. Opposite the hills
swelled gentlj back from its western
bank, behind us they roso more abrupt
ly to tho high tableland of Jaulan,
while to tho southward stretched tho
plain of .Buteiha, with tho Lake of Ti
berias in tho distance.
Meantime thu few wild looking na
tives who inhabit this remote locality
clustered around me, as they watched
me measuring and sketching, with no
little suspicion and alarm. "See," said
oao to another, "our country is being
taken from us." My request for old
cuius only frightened them the mote.
They vehemently prottstcd that not
ono had been found, an assertion
which, under the circumstances, I felt
suio was untrue ; nor did the most gen
tle and reassuring language, with
tenders of backshish which was nov
el tholes greedily accepted tend to
allay their fears. I have forgotten to
mention what was perhaps the most
interesting objctofall, and this was
tho cm ved figure of a winged female,
waving what seemed to bo a sheaf in
ono hand, while) her legs were doubled
bickward in a most iiucomf citable and
ungraceful position. It was on an iso
late d slab about six inches thick, and
two feet ono way by eighteen inches
The area of tha hillside all around
was Mrcwu with the blocks of building
stone of which tho town had been
built. It had apparently not been a
very large place, but as tbo villagers
will probably continue their excava
tions for their own purposes next sum
mer, it is not at all unlikely that tbey
max bring some mote interesting re
in uih to light. I earnestly impressed
upon thorn the necessity of preserving
lh"se, pnimi-iiig another visit next
