" Ami so you have really and truly
enjoyed this month in the country,
Cousin ("live?"
" I have, indeed, Florence ; and the
only tiling that takus the sting from
regret at leaving this dear old place, is
the thought that you are to return with
me, and that I may try my utmost to
make you enjoy the next month as I I
have done this."
"To introduce inn into society, to
oring me out I suppose?" said Flor
ence. M Hut don't you think I am
rather old for that sort of thing? I
have seen twenty. Cousin ('live."
"Without one season in New York,*'
said he "without one admirer save the
clownisii young men of the neightsir
liissl, without asingleofTer of marriage,
if I mistake not, Floy. It is really ,
shocking to bury your lieauty for so
long in such a remote place as this."
"As to offers of marriage, you are
wrong," replied the young lady, laugh
ing. " I have lieen honored by two—
one from .Mr. Sam (Jregory, who, with
a great deal of hashfulness and fidget
ing about, asked my consent to IK* Mrs.
Sam, and the other from the Kev.
Westrop I lean, a poor curate who
couldn't sound his r's. I didn't accept
.Mr. ('live Hardinge liftisl his hand
with a gesture at disgust, and, shaking
his head, replied, dolefully: "Which it
will eventually come to, perhaps, if
you are not quickly lifted out of this
mediocre class inb that higher grade !
of society to which yon are entitled by
birth ;uid position. I am very glad
you are going to my mother for a little
time; for. although there is not, my
dear cousin, a more ficrfect lady in all
New York than you, yet thn constant
companionship of this so-called upper
class of the village might in time cause
you to forget that your superior birth
precluded the |Mssihility of your ever
choosing a husband from among tin
young men of tin- families you are in
the habit of visiting; for it would ill
beneem the blood of a Hardinge to
mate with one beneath her."
The hot bps*! flew up in a torrent to
the girl's face as her cousin uttered
these words, for she knew that her
mother had been so considered to de
mean herself, when, two-and-twenty
years before, she disobeyed the com
mand of a stern parent and u sterner
brother, and proudly placed her hand
in the strong, warm grasp of a man
who had no sin against him hut his
poverty, his ;unhitimis day-dreams and
his love for her. She remembered how,
in this obscure spot, they had eked out
his meager pittance; how the glorious
productions of art that his glowing im
agination had vivified into almost liv.
Ing creations had passed away, and left
the noble face drawn and sad, and the
large, eloquent eyes, that hail fought
so bravely for them, a closisl volume
of blindness and death. Then the
struggle for life, for existence, the long
years of suffering and sorrow of her
early life, and subsequently the one
thousand dollars a year that some un
known relative, dying, left them.
She had never seen a single member
of hT mother's family until n few
months tiefore, when (Hive Hardinge,
son of that brother who had scaled up
his father's heart against his sister all
the days of his life, came suddenly upon
them in their quiet country home, was
struck with the refinement that per
vaded the atmosphere in which his
aunt and cousin lived, and charmed
with the raro grace and fresh beauty
of the young girL He hastened to cre
ate an amiable understanding between
ibis mother and Mrs. Lysle, which, being
easily effected, as Mrs. Hardinge en
tertained no foaling at resentment
against a woman she had never seen.
he suddenly fancied that t lie cool, ft-esh
breezes of Hillside might have a bene
ficial influence on bis town-bred consti
tution ; and, therefore, without any
circumlocution, he gave a broad hint
to that effect. His aunt took the hint
and invited him. During his stay*lie
and Florence had been a great deal
thrown together, and, with a constant
interchange of thought and opinions
passing between them, grew in a
month pretty well to know and appre
ciate each other.
('live Hardinge was neither hand-1
some nor young; but he possessed that
which our people, and our women es
pecially, value more in men than cor
rectness of feature, or even youth
strength, eourage and manliness. Five
ami-thirty years had rolled over his'
brown bead, and left the wavy hair'
still brown, and the gray eyes un- \
dimmed in the tire of their boyhood. j
He consider himself a middlc-ngcd
man now; a.id, if any midsummer
day-dream ever had tinged with a tran
sient brightness the even tenor of his
life, it was long since rolled up in the
forgotten past. He took an interest in
Florence, a deep interest, by reason of
tier lieauty, her innocence and Iter un
pmtectinn. Maif of the world as he
was, thoroughly understanding all the
ins and outs of society, he felt tliat his
cousin was no common girl—that she
was at once adapted to till a higher
position than that in which she had
yet moved. He tpok this interest to
heart, and acted ratlmr vaguely upon it.
In the pause that succeedi-d this last
remark his keen discernment instantly
detected the insult ho had unintention
ally offered her, and, with a slight em
barrassment in his face, he bent for
ward and -aid: " Forgive rno, Floy; do
not misunderstand my meaning. I am
referring to yourself. You will be en
gaged before you leave New York.
Mark my words."
The flush ditsl out of her face ami a
merry sparkle danced in her eves as
she said, gayly: " What, in one month!
My good cousin, how quickly you arc
going to dispose of me! Make no such
rash prophecy, thou oracle of evil."
"Hut I do," said ('live. "Let me
bet you a dozen jsair of gloves that my
prediction will come true."
"Against what?" -he asked.
"Against a kiss." he replied.
"Sir, you surprise me J" said Flor
ence. " Hut you would lose your let."
"If I lose I will pay," said he; "and
if you lose you must pay."
"Hut I shall not lose. Cousin Clive,'*
said Florence. "I am sure that none
of the gentlemen to whom you intro
duce me will satisfy my fastidious
" Wait until you see them, my dear
child," said Clive. " You are very un
sophisticated. I only fear they will
tind too easy ingress to that little un- 1
tritsl heart of yours."
She laughed a laugh that had a ring
of scorn in it. which made him look up
with a puzzled expression, as though
he could not quite fathom her, as she
left the room.

Mrs. F.arldale's saloons were crowded i
with fashion, lieauty and wealth. It '
was her last ball of the season, ami the
most brilliant she had given. Among
the assembled ladies it was evident
that one was the center of attraction. 1
the dazzling star around which the
smaller stars*-cased to shine. She was
quite surrounded by gentlemen ohtru-1
sivc in their attention and tiresome In
their flattery. She seemed to feel it i
acutely, as she stood, with heightened
color and disdainful lifts, mutely in the
midst. She scarcely lifted the curling
hishes from the dark hlaek eyes, or
gave the least movement to the hair
that covered her white shoulders like a
golden veil. She was perturbed and
distressed, and wanted to get away
from them. All the evening she had
been herself merry and gay; but her
most careless glance had Iss-n met by
one almost passionate in Its admira
tion, her laughing tones answered
by the most fiillsnine flattery,
that, angry with herself and them
—having aptly learned in three
short weeks to heartily despise the hol
low mockery of what the world calls
pleasure—she now stood this last hour
in the tmllrooin in anything but a
happy frnme of mind. At last there
was a break in the circle, and the low
tones of the votaries of fashion
ceased for a moment, as a young man
of quiet gentlemanly ls-aring made Ids
way up to the young lady.
" Miss Lvsle," said he, " permit roe
to conduct you to the conservatory.
Yon were speaking of—"
They had passed through the rooms,
and she turned to thank him for
bringing her away.
"But where Is Clive?" she asked
"Are we not going home? I am so
tired, Willi".'*
" Tired of dancing, or of New York
j dissipation, Florence-—which?" he
1 asked.

"Then such a life has no charms for
you?" he said.
" N'o. indeed," was the reply. " 1 am
disappointed in Olive llardinge.. I
thought him superior to such frivolity,
lie seems to like it."
"There you mistake, Floy," said her
companion. "It is society that courts
him—not he who courts society. As
you say, he is superior to it."
"Then why does he go into it so
much ?" she asked.
"He is performing a sort of pen
ance," was the reply, "and mixing in

of one Lie cares for much, to see if the

said, as they pass*si through the rooms.

Her head dropped down suddenly,
and the long hair fell over hot cheeks,
and her hands trembled and clasped
themselves together on her lap.
There was a painful pause*; and
when Florence dared to lift her eyes
she saw ('live Hardinge's face hurled
in his folded arms, cjulet arjd still.
She rose hesitatingly, and then went
up to him, placed one soft hand on his
hair, while with the other site* ex

When an American buyer arrives in
the heart of the rug-making country
in Asia he selects the Iswt agent he
can find and gives him an order for,
say, Psi rugs, ~f almut th<* colors and
sizes of certain samples which he may
find in the bazaars. The Turkish
agent tle-ii employs natives of the
villages where the kind of rugs selected
are wanted, giving to each a hag of
gold and instructions to {order four
rugs. The subagent then gee* among
tin* families and talks rugs with them,
drinking many cups of coffee and dis
cussing the price for days at a time.
When a bargain is conclude! some
money is furnished the family for wool,
dyes and feed, and the agent goes away
-nr that in the course of a few months
the rug will he ready. Up*-n a carpet
measuring eight fist by twelve a whole
family will work for months. The
cotton or woolen threads which form
the groundwork or warp of the fabric
are stretched upon a huge frame the
width of the rug, and the family, or
such memlicrs of it as are able, sit on
the floor and tie knots in the warp
threads with the colored wool tufts,
tightening the finished fabric now and
then with a rough comb.
Kah worker take* about twenty
seven inches of the rug and works
along this strip. From two to four
inches a day is the speed at which the
rug advance* if the family is large
enough for the whole width of the
rug to advance at the same time. A
rug eight or nine feet wide requires
four persons, who work side by side.
The finishing of the rug, smoothing,
clipping, etc., is a work requiring skill
and judgment. The wages are very
small and the payment is according to
the number of square feet. The work
ers know certain patterns by heart and
dve their own wools. The old dyes
have in some instances ls*n suje
pbtnted by aniline colors, which do not
keep their tones, and fade without giv.
ing to the rug the softness of tint which
is the chief glory of a fine Eastern
rng. Si many merchants have refusal
to buy the caqiets in which aniline
dyes have been u*id that the use of
them may eventually Is* stopped.
The rug-makers as a class are poor
in money, very ignorant and very re
ligious, hut live comfortably. Espe
cially around the borders of the'C as pi an
sea, in the country watered by the riv
ers from the Caucasian mountains, are
the people in comfortable circum
stances, although alsuit three centuries
behind the resit of the world. The
rugs and carpets are brought in from
Persia ami the neighboring districts on
camels' backs, the arrival of camel
trains l>eing one of the curious sights
of the town.

Mew Wheat IMstrlrts.
According to the F<trm'r, an exten

to lie opened up in India. The pajeer
says: The India office is lending its
.sanction just now to an enormous
scheme f*>r the reclamation of the
waste lands of the Punjaub. The
waters of the five rivers which
give the name to that region flow*
wastcfully away to the sea, leaving a
large tract of desert land, some of
which was once fertile, to lie the home
,of nothing and noNidy. Those same
rivers arc sufficient to make that same
desert blossom as a r<se. The work
of cutting canals which would afford
means With lor navigation and irriga
tion would N> enormous; but so
far is it thought feasible that
the India office has undertaken
to use the canals, jeaying tolls for its
transit, and to buy the irrigation water,
undertaking on its own account to col
lect the water rent from the natives-
Engineering experts declare that the
special work can easily l>e done, and
