they stood beside a pallet on which lav
a woman. The invalid stirred, and
turning her wan face to them asked
"ILivo you brought the doctor,
"Yes, dearest," and turning to him
"Dr. Bank.", this is my sister, Miss
The change his name made on the
sick woman was electric. From utter
listlessness sha was aroused t the in
tensest excitement. A deep flush over
spread her face, aud her eyes sp:ir';ied
like coals as she raised herself upon her
iliow- aud gnzed into his face.
"It is not him," she muttered ; "yu
yes there is a likeness!"
fSh- paused, nnd abruptly addrossins,
the doctor said: "Hud you ever u
brother, Dr. Banks?"'
Her voice was clear and resonant, it
marked contrast to her previous m tit
terings. The doctor answered flov. iy
and deliberately :
"And his name was Henry?"
"Where is he now?"
A dark shndo passed over his fiice.
'I do not know," he 6aid ; "I hnvt
not heard from him for three yenrs.
The lust word I had was a letter he
wrote me from California, tailing ol
his engagement to a Sun I'ratieiseo girl
a psragon of beauty and goodness."
"That inr:igon is before yo;i or,
rather, the w reck your faithless brother
has left of her."
The doctor caught his breath. "Mis
Carnold," ho said, "this is a terrible
surprise to me ! But, come now, your
sister shsll tell mo ull. Meanwhile,
you must not excite yourself, but must
obey mv directiousstrietlv, if vou wis!
to get well."
The doctor found that hex's w.is n.
organic trouble, but rather a general
exhaustion of nature's powers, arising
from worry and insufficient food. Jle
gave her a qnieting potion, and she'
fell into a gentle slumber. Ho then'
asked Miss Alice to ive him an ac
count of how the trouble with hi
brother had happened.
In answer she related that her sister
had met Henry Banks at a reception.
He was voting and handsome nnd hac
won her heart. Her father gave hit
consent to their marriage, end th
day was set. Then followed Mr. C'ar
nold's death, and the full from wealth
to poverty. He left nothing but hit
debts. But the climax of their trou
bles eamo when Jlenry Ban!."; disap
peared, leaving a letter for his li;i:u-e
ttatiug that he had decided to starl
anew elsewhere aXui Mie would ucvel
seo him again. The two women then
worked their way to Xew York, hop
ing to meet friends of their father who
once lived there, but only to find them
dead. They had then rented then
present apartments, and eked out a
scanty living by taking iu sewing.
I nder the severe strain Mary's health
gave way, nnd she was prostrated.
The younger sister, on her way for t
uhvsiciati, had been attracted by lr.
IlaTik's sign and had sought his r.M.
When she had finished her recital, the
dor-tor wnssilent for a time

"theso 8urronnding3 are not congenial

make which I beg yon will accept in
the same spirit that it is offered. The
second floor of my hou' - is vacant, and
I want you to occupy it. When your
sister is well enough to remove we will
take her there, and you shall be niori
Alice's only answer we.s to burst into
tears. The tender-hearted doctor sat
down beside her and took her hand.
"Won't yon consider me your friend,
iliss Carnold," he said carnefctlr, "an
v;cejt (his offer?"
She raised her lovely tear-stained
face aud their eyes met.
"Ir. Banks," she exclaimed, "you"
kindness quite overpowers me. Ferhaps
I ought to doubt you and spurn your
proposal, but I am going to accept, for
it seems to me that Providence has sent
you to us."
' "I trust that I shall prove a trut
emissary of Providence," he answered.

thanks to her improved circumstances
and the doctor's care, was so much im

in the confusion and sorrow I forgot
to mention the mortgage to the girls.
That evening, sitting in my room, 1
fell asleep. I woke to find myself se

An English physician named Mo po
ther has been making researches into the
influence of certain kinds of food on
baldoess. Two of the forms of food, he
asserts, that nearly everyone takes every
day, beef and milk, have, by their chem
ical composition, the effect of annihi
lating the primordial elements of the
hair and withering the roots. Doctor
Mopotber thinks that different albumin
oid food and starchy substances, partic
larly dark colored oats, which contain
twenty-two per cent, of silica, have a
powerful effect in making the hair grow.
The races of men that have the finest

The new leather "membranoid," or
'boucle," is somewhat puzzling to those
who are not in the secret of its origin.
It is neither more nor less than tripe,
tanned by a new process and prepared
for use in about ten days. It is said to
be the lightest leather known and as pli
able as cotton cloth. It is made in tea
colors and can be used for pocket-books,
albums, millinery, dress trimmings and
slippers. Tho leather looks like crash
toweling and the honeycomb portion of
cross-bar pattern is most ornamental.

It catches little ball of food, if

precision worthy of a cricketer. On
one ooeasion, when Mrs. Hornbill had
made herself nest in tha hollow
trunk of the tree in their house and
deposited her eggs in it, Mr. Hornbill
came and plastered up the opening
with mud, leaving only a small space
sufficient for him to insert his bill and
feed the female and nestlings. He
feeds them in a very affectionate man
