It was scrupulously-neat and dainty.
In all its appointments, tho little parlor
whero Mrs, Brelghton sat, although tho
carpet was a tlssuo of darns, the fur
niture faded, and tho hearth-rug skill
fully eeked out by a slender-throated
vase, stood on tho antique, claw-legged
table, tho fender-Irons glittered llko
gold, and the thin muslin curtains, ar
tistically mended hero and thero, were
white as snow; and Mrs. Brelghton her
self looked llkeCinderella's god-mother,
In her diess ot ancient brocado, best
yellow thread lace, and tho rings glitter
ing on her small, shriveled hands.
Elghtyiyears old, and a'lady to tho
last! Tbat was something to bo proud
of. What though paralysis had robbed
her of all use of those dalnty-sllppcred
feet what though the grand house she
had entered as a bride was now narrow
ed down to this one room In a second
rate building; where two other families
also set up their household altars sho
was a lady still, and she could boast
that sho' never had degraded herself to
"Our, means aro limited," said old
Mrs. Brelghton, with the lofty air of a
duchess; "but tho pension of my son,
tho colonel who, as you probably may
remember, was killed on the .Florida
frontier Is sufficient to maintain my
self and my two grand-daughters and
we aro ladies; "
Minnie Brelghton presently ca-.no.ln,
with her little chocolatiero on a knap

exquisitely browned and cut as thin as

"My dear" with an air of mild res

Mrs. Brelghton contracted her sil
"Tho Breightons aro not a borrow

"Shall I get you an egg, grandmam

And grandmamma Brelghton went
on with her breakfast, wearing an in
jured air, while Minnlo went back to
tho other room, where sat' her twin sis
.dnna Brelghton was as pretty as
ilfinnlo, but In quito a different style.
Sho was dark, -with melting, almond
shaped eyesan1 ollve.skin, and lips' like
a pomegranate Uowcr, so perfectly
shaped, so richly red; Minnie was tall
and slender, and fair as a daisy,
Anna laid down'a slip of greasy paper

"It's the grocer's bill again, sister.
What shall wo do?"
Minnie sank into a chair.
"And tho gas yesterday, and tho
landlord not paid, and tlie purse as
empty as Mother Hubbard's cupboard.
What shall wo do?"
"That's the question," said Minnie,
reflectively arching her Jetty brows. "If
we can only keep it from grandmam
ma!" "Wo must," retorted Minnie, with a
decisive nod. "It would kill her .If
we were men now, Nanny, wo could
go out and get a Job of wood-sawing,
or houso-palottug, or "
"And why can't we now?"
"Why, Bccauso Pat O'Neill has got

cause we can't climb ladders, with paint

"But we can do somethlnr clso I
suppose. Listen, Minnie money wo
must have!" '
"If wo go out'into tho highways and
ask It at tho point of tho bayonet!" in
terjected Minnie, gravely.
"There's no poverty like genteel pov

haven't heard my plan. Mrs. Baker,
the laundress in our top story, is sick."
"What then? Wo have neither wiue
nor Jelly, nor yet crisp bank-notes to

"And sho can't keep up. to her en

how on earth you or I could earn ten

Major George Appleton was an army
officer, home on a furlough, and rather
at a loss to know what to do with so
much extra time. Itlcli, which was an
other source of perplexity handsome,
Vfhljh wasn't so puzzllngl
And so ho sauntered along, his hands
in his pockets and a cigar balanced be
tween his lips, uuconslously advancing
to meet his fatel
Bap! rapl rap! Tho Major playod o
tattoo with his knuckles on the door.
"Dear me, what a noise!" said a
voice Inside. "Come In!" a little loud
er. The Major walked in, to confront,
not a wrinkled old hag of a washerwom
an, in a halo of soap and steam, but a
beautiful young lady dark and brilliant
as an Arabian dream, with Jetty curls
plntied back iu a silken cascade at tho
back of her head, and a pair of fluting
scissors In licr hand.
Major Appleton started back, all ills
wits momentarily deserting ldm. It Is
a curious' fact that the moro embarrassed
one party in a tete-a-tete becomes, tho
greater Is the composure of the other.
Anna Brelghton should havo' colored
and stuttered, at being caught thus, but
"What's your business, sir" she ask
cd, with the greatest calmness.
"It's It's about my sister's gown
Miss Appleton's you knowl"
"Ahl" said yluna. "I hope to havo
it ready-very soon. . It you'll wait ten
minutes you may carry it liomo."
And she took a second pair ot fluting
scissors from' tho 'stove, testing It heat
by holding It dangerously near hor vel
Major Appleton, not being posted In
etiquette and general decorum, saw no
harm In carrying home a basket of new-ly-lauqdred
clothes'. So he sat down
and waited, whilo honest' Mrs. Barker
stared from tlio other room, where 'slip
lay upon her bed a captlvo to rheuma
"Sho's In a hurry, you know," said
tlio major, twirling his thumbs, and
thinking how very pretty the girl was.
"So am I," said Anna, making tho
fluting scissors glide in and out In n
most marvelous manner among tho
clouds of sunny muslin.
"Sho wants to wear it," added tho
"i?ut I say you know you'ro not a
Anna slightly straightened herself up,
"lit'y father was a colonel in the Re
gular Army. My grandfather was Hydo
Brelghton, of Brelghton Manor, on tho
Hudson. But we arc reduced now, and
we need money; and I am not ashamed
"By Jovo you're a trump!" said MaJ.
Appleton, starting up.
"Much obliged to you," retorted
Anna, with sparkling eyes. "Would
you mind holding tho end of that sash

And when Minnlo camoupto see how
her sister was getting on, she found her
aided and abetted by the major, of

"Dear me," satd Miss Appleton,
when at last her brother made his ap
pearance, "how long have you been!"
"Yes,1' said the major, rubbing his
hands, whh an appearanco of great
satisfaction, "It took' us quito a while
to finish those last thirteen, flounces."
"Us! You don't mean to say that you
helped tho washerwoman?" ''
"Yes, I did," said the major; and the
frocks aro down stairs, aud I'm going
up for a game of billiards." And as he
went, he 'murmured to himsolf. I
thought all girls were alike, but, I be

Anna Brelghton was kneeling besldo

Marks op tub Gentleman. No man
is a gentleman by naturo who, without
provocation, would treat with Incivility
tho humblest ot his spelces. It Is a
vulgarity for which noaccompllshments
of dress or address can ever atone.
Show me tho man wio desires to make
every ono happy aroud him, and whose
greatest solicitude Is never to give Just
cause of offence to any one, and I will
show you a gentleman by naturoand by
practlco, though he may never havo
worn a suit of broadcloth , nor oven
heard of a lexicon. I am proud to say,
for tho honor ot our species, there aro
men, in every throb of whoso heart
thero Is so.'lcltudo for tho welfare of
mankind, and whose breath Is perfum
ed with kindness.
