Alice.was Soon , deer in the myste
ries of eroqu'et,_ with a young lien
tenant as her partner, and had just
won the: first game, when George
Ashbury, accompanied by his pretty
cousin, of whom Mrs. Layton had
spoken, appeared among them:
Perhaps at any other time Alice
:would have accepted her lover's cx
planation as quite satisfactory, When
he stated that on reaching Weathan„
some five miles off, he found the buS 7
iness on which he went had been
postponed for a week, and as his con=
sin and uncle were coming to, the
Bentleys, he decided to accompany
them.' But the hints of the morning

affectation, of girlishheis she was still
'young eiiiingh to assume without be
ing ridiculous, as he held - her silks
while she wound them' off. his hands,
sometimes j laughing at hiS awkward
ness, then praising him for his; skill.
At such times, Alice would take
refuge in a book, and seemingly .lost
in its contents, would occasionly look
on with's* scorn on her brow that
the two must have understood had
either of them noticed it.
Her sistr's cunning was not lost
upon her; she saw it all, appreCiated
it at its true value, and her heart was
pained 'as she felt how stealthily: the
love of the Man sbe prized was being
stolen from her. But she woriti not
titter a word of - complaint, even if,
by no doing, she could unravel . the
net being woven against her happi
nes. Ilerj pride , forbade it. j She
Could not sire for the return of the
love that had once been . her !own,
and to upbraid and accuse her • sister
would' be bait degrading 'herself. So
with this pain gnawing at her heart,
but with noWord or sign ()t i the agony
sire suffered, • save in the_ increased
paleness of her cheeks, and the still
haughty bole,. of proud head, the
days and-weeks sped on.
One evening Alice was Sitting in.
an arbor,i engaged in reading, when
her attentien, was attracted byi the
sound of two' voices, both fainiliar to
"Rut you loved Aline!" It was
her sister who spoke. • • .
- "That was ,before I knew You:
Beside, Alice had ceased 'to care for
me. You have told me so yourself;
and if proof were wanting, does! she
not avoid me as much as possible?
You need hate no false delicacy on
account of your sister; only say! you
will be my wife!"
Alice lost the answer. A . faint
giddines&.she could not control Over
came her, the sense of hearing , was
for the moment ; gone, and, when she
recovered; the voices were no kinger
near.' For the rest of that night; and
day Alice locked herself in her awn
room, refusing to Omit anyone. She!
coul not in her present frame of
mind meet the sister who had, stolen
away her pr' iceisss treasure, 'for, in
her bitterest moments, Alice exoner
ated her lover from blame. Her Own
pride and her sister's scheming had,
she was sure, done nil the mischief.
Maripits; where Colonel Pentwell
and his daughters resided, was a
town ofecimparativelY Modern growth
situated in wide, deep valley, many
of the houses being built on the side
of the hills.
• Among ita peculiarities was the
reservoir for' supplying the town
with water 'a large circular mound
on a hill, oririnall3-, above the town,
though tionses ;were no creeping up
to ft,. I• .
There 'had lately been ominousrti
•mors of the . insecurity of the retter-•
volt'. Some Said the side nearest the
town was,OVing .way; • that the se
vere frosts Of the • past. winter tiad
damaged they stone and earth-works,,
and there were many who predicted
that one finelmorningwould find the
town drowned. True, people talked
like this lather for the sake.of chat
ting than because they quite believed
what they themselves said, but the
board of directors of the water works
heard of it, and perhaps conscious
pat the danger was nut over estima
ted, had issued- orders for the, thor-
Ough repair c i t - the embankment. ' A
delay of 'a few days •in Commencing
ithe repairs: had arisen, but of • what
consequence was that when the res
;ervoir had lasted so many years ?
We shall see.
It was' Sunday, and as - Colonel
Pentwell andl his two daughters en
tered the church they regularly at
tended, a rayl of sunlight ;fell upon
the old soldier's white hair; and light- 1
ed up his 'youngest daughter's pretty
face, on which the expression of pride'
'had given pla i ce to a look of, humble
taith and resignation such as it had
inever 'worn before. The lesson' of
the past day and night had not been
thrown away upon her. : The gold
had passed through the fUrnace, and
was purified front the dross which
had tarnished4t. She had at that
moment forgOtt)n George Ashbury,
and the love so lightly transferred ;
had forgotten her sister, all that had
troubled and oppressed 'her. So com

And gracious pity round titian ardent mouth—
Like rain of summer upotrwasted lands,
Thy tend3r tears refreshed my spirit's drouth.

' BRAWN AND BRAIN.
Fois, the new President of

has some muscular notion , V in his
inaugural address, delivered, October
Nth,: he says . :
• "The scholar especially needs'
Ihrawn as well as brain ;
order to be _a scholar he must pay
,tax levied' on every
perpetual hard student, and also be
cause the extreme practicable mental exertion,
exertion, which Is the business `Of
his life, is direetly , tontingent on the
fineness and fullness Of his physical
forces. Let the -student then give
earnest heed to the care and culture
of .the'body. It is the home, the in
strument, the mind and eternal eOrn
panion of his soul. Let him know
that sipping gruel, and languidly
lounging over books until his mid
night lamps burn low, can never be
either a sjiolar or a man. Let him
eat beef and mutton in generous
slices. Let him leap into every day
as into a - ne,v paradise, over the wall
of eight hours of solid sleep.' Let
him not cross hiS arias behind him,
drop his head, and mope along the
pavement, inwardly- saying, "1 am
-walking for exercise' Let him
stretch nway over the hills with fit
Companions,,itt utter forgetfulness of
-lessons, and essays and sermons, un
til every drov .of blood in his,veins

'or poise the riffle. I would I might.
:see our gymnasiumn each day thionged
(at suitable lidnrs i with earnest devo
tees of physieal ,culture. Only let
,these things be done with a distinct
recognition of a higher nature, and
in such manner and measure as to do
nOliarm to what is best and noblest
inithe loftier realm. Of this higher
nature the physical powers are only
tli scaffolding. To man this earth is
siimething more besides than a: dor
niltory,7and ',a larder and a gyainasi
pat.: It is a school house, and a
workshop, and a gallery of art. is
a mighty lesson book for-his lasting
Study. Its surface yields spontane-
Msly, enough to be a 'hint of -far
'richer treasures in its' bosoms. It
spreads' out a multitude of nuselved
problems before the eager eye. Na
ture's voice to man is " Work,'Work - ,
tinceasingly with hand, brain-, Work,
Work, if you would win." Among
the adaptations which prove the 'exis
tence of a designing mind, such' as
tight for the eye, and eye for the

SHOES TO FIT THE FOOT.
'..:Writers of " fashion " articles for
the:daily press and others who atreet
physiological views "regarding the
unhealthfulness of high heels and
Short toes, continue to ventilate their
opinions and decry the " prevaffing "
styles ofshoes, especially those made
for ladies wear; at every opportunity.
If. these people, instead of taking. a
few exceptionally fancy goods made,
expreSsly for 'the show;
for especial purposes, as.examples of-I
tie fashion, could visit some of the
prominent manufacturers and' exam
ine the: styles which are being made
i great quantities for the first-class
retail trade of the large cities, they
*onld be quickly convinced that our
American women are as much alive:
to. comfort combined with elegance
as' any. We do not deny that shoes
,high heels;und cramped toes are
made and find a market, but itiS On
ly among certain classes and for 'spe
'elal purpose's. - For the ball rponi
triad for the itaae such styles hold
their ground,ntid will, probably, for
along time to come. But for every,
day use, at home and abroad, the
41.6 of shoes made by the iirst,elass
manufacturers—for shoes -made to
Measure by the custom makers are
only such in name—are as near 'per
fection as regards shape and . fit as
the distorted feet Of the present gen
eration will allow. The toes are wide .
and roomy, and at, the same time not .
chimSy in,appearanee; the heels are ;
Made low and broad, sufficiently so
to sustain 'the weight of the body
without undue strain on the muscles
of the, leg ; the soles are made thick
aad Serviceable for out-door wear,
and substantial on those intended for
indoors. Besides these general pecu
liarities, the anatorily of the foot. has
been ,carefully studied, and the art
has been brought to such. perfection
that each - national or sectional pecu
liarity has beenclassifi&l, and goods
are made exactly adapted to each.
Those nianufactUrers who aim to be
fdremost have from fourto seven (lir=
1'0(14 styles for
. each size, so qhat,
unless the foot is literally deforthed,
there need be no difficulty in obtain-.

1t is largely due to the - liersever-.

ers, Who have labored steadily for
years to' educate the better and more

wearing a shoe that was comfortable,
and at the same time beautiful, that
this . , change has been accomplished.
Knowing that any sudden innovation

that the artery could not be ligated

asked the lady.
" No," was the answer, ." but I am
