I can't Imagine1, Kitcllc, how you
caino o bo so decidedly nlaiiij beauty
is rather a uharictcristloof our family."
Hero Maro l),rcy glanced with a Rails'
fled nir at his handaomo face reflected
in an opposite mirror, whilo a hlicht
flush arosii to tlm dark, almost swarthy
cheek ot the young girl seated vls-a vis
(o him, and the delicately shaped hands
trembled slightly as they sought to con-
j Initio tho work they wcru occupied
"I believe you favor your father,
continued the gentleman.
" cp, I am like my father. Uu was
not handsome, but 60 noble, so good.
I was so proud (if him. I never thought
about his looks. I am sorry, moro for
your sake than mine, that I am not
beautiful. Your wife should bt, but
Mrtro with a ipiick, impulsive
movement the young girl knelt down
beside- her betrothed and laid Iter lips
caressingly to his hand, adding:
'You will not lovo mo tho le?st
You who aru to handsome; who could
have ohosen from so many, yet asked
me to bo your wife. You aro all tho
world to me, Maro. No one could lovo
yon more than I."
With rather an uneasy laugh Maro
Darcy, placing his arm about Ins com
"Tears. Kslcllo! "Why, what has
come over you f It just happened to
strike me that it was rather strange
you were not as beautiful as tho rest of
tho women in our family; but then you
have soino redeeming points. Pretty
eves and uood teeth no small item
toward good looks, I can assure you
A pleased look crossed Kstelle's face
at the last words of her intended, and,
twining both her arms about his neck,
"And yon don't mind it so much if I
am plain? You will always lovo mo .'"
"Of courso I thall," oamo the reply
as Maro kissed her lightly on tho fore
head, adding, half laughinc:
"Perhap Ustclic, I shall put your
love to the test some day. Will it fail
mo I wonder t"
Raising her lio.nl from its renting
place upon Marc's shoulder, Eitelle's
eyes sought his.
Thero was a strange intensity in
their dark depths as she answered slow
ly, as if weighing each word.
"f do not think you quitu understand
me, or my love for you, Maro. It is as
the breath of my life: yet if I evercaino
to believe- that it was for your happi
ness for me to givo you up, I would do
so at any cost to mysell."
Before Marc could reply Kslcllo had
passed quickly from tho room.
With a shrug of his shoulders, ho
selected a oigaretto trom a handsomely
embroidered case, thinking:
"What a stiange girl Estollo is.
She is riuht. I don't believo I do un
derstand her; poor little thing, how
earnest she is. I should not have spok
en about her plainness, but there it is j
thero is no denying it. However, as
she is to bo my "wife, I suppose I shall
havo to make tho best ot it. I II buy
her tho handsomest bracelet I can find
for a peace-offering.''
Marc Darcy wao an only son. Hand
some as an Adonis, with a fascinating
manner, which, when ho chose to ex
ercise it, few could resist. Mrs. Ilarcy
had been left a widow with considera
ble property, but her son's extravagant
drains upon her purso had greatly re
duced her income.
Maro was not by any means a bad
fellow, simply selfishly inJulgent tow
ard himself. Estello Morton was tho
daughter of a cousin of Mrs. Darcy's.
On the death of her father, which oo-
ciirred about eighteen months before
my story opened, Kstelle had taken up
r abode at aunnysnlP, ttio nomo oi
Mrs. Darcy. Aunt Margaret, as Ls-
ti'lle always called her, was her only
elatire, and had made the orphan girl
welcome, being a kind-hearted woman,
although somewhat narrow-minded,
with but one engrossing idea her son.
I'.itellc had been an inmato ot .urs.
Darcy's home only a few weeks beforo
the thought eamo to tho widow, how
nice it would be if Maro and Ev.ello
should fall in lovo with each other.
Marc's debis weie pressing heavily upon
ier. Kstclle could so easily pay them
IT out of her largo fortune, for sho
was an heiress, as iwienes nusuaini,
Marc's future would bo provided for,
and when her timo camo sho would dio
feeling she had dono well by her boy.
KUclIc was a passionato admirer ot
beauty, and, almost ero sho was con
scious of it, she loved Maro with her
whole soul, and Maro at his mothers
instigations had carelessly drifted into
the situation of Estelle's lover.
Of to noblo a nature to seo aught
hut tho good in others, Estello never
dreamed that it might be her money,
and not herself, that had indu icd Maro
lo choose her for his wife. .Some few
weeks after tho openine of our story
tound .Mrs. mrcy and hstello seated al
breakfast. Maro had run up lo town
for a day or two. As Estello returned
a letter sho had just been reading to
its envelopo .Mrs. Uarcy romarked
Krom your friend, is it not, deart
does sho say when wo may expect her?"
es, she wntes wo may look tor
her to-morrow by the 2:10 train. Oh,
Aunt! think how sad it is lor her,
lelt alono so young; only 1G and oblig
ed to nam her own living. I am so
clad you aro willing I should ask her
hero for a few weeks. Sho is so bright
and pretty. I cannot imagine Inez lie
ing sorrowful. Wo will try and make
it very pleasant lor her, won t we,
"Of course, my dear,'' answered Mrs,
Darcy. "1 always wish to mako my
guests happy and comloi table,' ant
thus tho subject was dismissed for then
Tho lollowtug week .Maro arrived
one afternoon al home. In Ids care
less manner ho had omitted to send
word of his return, consequently Mrs,
Darcy and Estello wcro out, returning
Learning this from ono of tho Her
vants, Maro made his way to the west
drawing room, the cosiest room in tho
house. Opening tho door, he t-too
transfixed upon its threshold. A young
gin was reclining, last asleep, on t tic
bear skin rug before the glowing fire,
One dimpled arm, bare to the elbow,
was thrown carelessly above her head
whilo ono tiny hand rested under the
baby chin, bofl, floss-like hair curl
in golden rings about the whilo foro
head and fair neck.
With nn exclamation of surprise,
Maro turned to go; nt whioh a pair of
bewildered blue eyes opened nnd gaz
ed qucstioningly at him. Then hastily
springing from her recumbent position,
the young girl stood blushing boforo
As Maro mado his apologies sho In
Oh I l know. 1 on aro tho contlo
man Estello is engaged to; then 1 don't
mind. It's not so bad as if you had
been a stranccr. How you scared."
Hero ono little dimple, thn another,
crept forth, till a merry peal of laugh
ter rippled through the room, in which
.M iro joined.
When Mrs. D.ircy and Estello return
ed, they found Inez, for it was she, and
Marc chatting away hko old friends.
In Binto ot tner recent loss, which
dated only two months back, her child
ish, mirth loving naturo could take no
hold of sorrow. Her tears wore like
April showers, quickly over. True,
sho had known but little of her father,
having spent most of her life at board
ing school. Mr. Clino had been a self
ish, plcasuro-loving man, who took but
little thought of his motherless child
and lived close up to his income, leav
ing Inez penniless at his death:
Tho pretty morning dresses Inez
woro she owed to Estello's irenerosity.
Tho weeks slipped by, and still Inez
remained a guest at Sunnyside. At first
sho talked a good neal of going out as
governess, but later on she ceased tn
somehow ustello and Maro were
very seldom alono thoso days. Inez,
with her pretty, helpless ways, contriv
cd to monopolize a great deal of Marc's
timo. Yet Estello was pleased that it
should bo so.
In her uoblo heart there was no

faith and trust in Marc wero perfect.
I lie wedding day drew nigh. Inez
was to bo bridesmaid, nnd then Estelle
with her warm, impulsive nature hid
proposed that sho should accompany
them to Kuropu on their bridal tour
and Inez had clapped hor hand like :
Oh! if I only could! llow 1 should

main with her; but Inez had pouted
and oomo as near showing temper as
such a weak, little creature could, and
had gained her way.
It was decided that she Bhould ac
company tho bridal pair.
Maro and Estello wero man and wife,
and tho steamer was bearing them on
toward England's shores. Inez, too
sick to move, and wishing herself back
on land, was in her state room, with
ever thoughtful Enelle tending and
petling her, rewarding her husband
with a fond smile whenever ho camo
to inquire after tho sick girl. How

It was Marc who carried Inez on
deck nnd arranged tho rurand pillows
bearing with tho whims when even Es-
telle grew almost indignant at her
friend's peevishness toward her hus
band. One evening Estclle, suiTering from
a severe headache, retired early to her
stateroom, but, finding tho air below
very close, sho returned to tho deck.
Seeking her husband and Inez sho
druw near the whcclhotise. Suddenly
sho paused and stood as if turned to
stone. In tho shadow of tho wheel
houso were her husband and Inez.
Inez's golden head lay upon his breast
and there was a fond ring to Marc's
tones that Estclle had never heard bo
foro as ho uttered tho words:
"For God's sake stop cryinp, littlo

eyes to dash away the tears that would
come at tho thought of the fate of the
good ship that had carried him safely
lor many a year. Ihcn, dropping into
tho boat, he gave the word to pull olt.
In the darkness and hurry nono had
missed tho Rcntlo woman who had
comlorecd them all in their hour of
need. Estclle.s husband, to do him
justice, believed her safe in tho boat
with them all; but instead, she stood
alono upon the deck of tho now fast

Alone, no, not tnr'to. Something
touched her hand. It was Carlo, her
husband's ijrcat Newfoundland dog.
Patting him', sho pointed to tho water
and bade him go; but ho only wined
and licked her hand. Then Estello
knelt down upon tho deck, and with
her hand resting on her faithful friend's
shasey coat, awaited hor ta'.o.
Almost at the samo moment as the
lifeboat was drawn upon the beach by
eager willing hands, the great ship,

were startled from their sleep by tho
cry of danger.
Women shrieked and clasped their
littlo ones to their breasts, whilo men,
white to tho lips, hurried on deck to bo
driven hack by tho wild fierceness of
tho storm. Waves like gigantic moun
tains hurled themselves ncainst tho
hip, under ivhich sho stascered and
reded and righted herself again, only
to bo struck down anew.
Valiantly tho good boat fought her
fight against the deep. Mast after

was a sapient inquirer, recently decoas
cd, who had a short way out of this
dillicully. He held that the sea was
only salt because of all tho salt rivers
that ran into it. Considering that tho

passtug tin ouch salt regions, or bom
fed by salino springs, all of which do

sea is salt becauso of tho large amount
of salino matter which it holds in solu
tion. Cheese is also a caseous prepara

This world was once a huzo of fluid
light, as tho pools and the men of
scieuco agree in informing us. As
soon as it began to cool down a littlo
the heavier materials naturally sank
toward the contre, whilo the lighter,
now represented by the ocean and tho
atmosphere, floated in a gaseous con
dition on the outside. Hut the great
envelope of vapor thus produced did
not consist merely of tho constituents
of air and water ; many other gases
and vapors mingle with them, as they
still do to a far less extent in our ex
isting atmosphere. By and by, as the
cooling nnd condensing process con-
tinned, the water settled down trom
tho condition ot steam into one ot a
liquid at a dull red Ileal. As it con
densed, it carried down with it n great
many other substances, held in solu
tion, whose component elements had
reviously existed in the primitive
asoous atmospheie. 1 litis thu early
ocean, which covered tho whole earth,
was in all probability not very salt,
ut also quite thick with other miner
al matters closo up to tho point of
aturation. It was full of lime and
raw lint and sulphates and many other
miscellaneous bodies. .Moreover, il
was not only just as salt as nt tho pros

Switchback Uailroad, on Tuesday
of last week, by Mr. John
Hosche, one of tho employees ot tho
Mnmford Brothers, lessees of the
Switchback. On tho "up trip in tho
afternoon, as the car was nearing tho
Nesquchoning path, Bosoho saw on tho
track ahead of the swiftly moving train
two enormous snako., partly coiled,
lying between the rails and seemingly
engaged in plav. As tho car neared
them tho two reptiles started down tho
track ahead of it. Boscho let off tho
breaks nnd tho car shot ahead and was
oveitaking the snakes when one of
them began to grow tired and to fall
behind the other, unable to keep up the
rate at which they wcro running. The
stronger ono deliberately seized thu
other ono by the neck with its jaws,
nnd with n snd Jon vigorous nouuu ai

it. The firtit one cleared the rail, but
the wheels pased over tho second ono
nnd cut it in several pieces. The un
harmed ono coiled itself and sprang at
the car, which was now nearly stopped,
and its fangs with a sharp click enter
ed the timber and held tho wriggling
monster fast. Tho car ran a few yards
fuither, dragging the captive snake,
which rattled horribly and threw its
body first up on tho car and then to
the ground. Tito fangs broke off and

backwoodsman, who "fried out" tho

it as a medicine in certain cases. The

That young women, moro especially
those who think flirtation a legitimate

out inducements to young men without

that a woman could submit to over
tures that she does not reciprocate in

who aro doubtless wholly virtuous in

lead a man on to a declaration of his
