The position I occupied at Morris lla!l i was a unique one —professor of mathe 1 matics in a young ladies' seminary of the I old school, at the age of twenty-two. It was not unalloyed bliss, however. The greatest drawback to the sitcation was my 1 fondness for the society of young ladies. ) The president of the institution was my ' maternal uncle and was fully aware of my weakuess; therefore, with a view to both my own aLd his fair pupils' welfare, he kept me much under his eye. But there were times when my proclivities were by no means frowned down —when a new girl with a wealthy papa missed her home gai eties and hinted at leaving, or a sentiment al miss pined at the breaking off of some forbidi'en correspondence —on such occa sions the healthy tonic of a little delicate attention from the only eligible man in the place was rather encouraged. Then, too, even Uncle Joseph was not quite übiquit ous, and the stairs and halls, the music rooms, the verandahs and the many pretty walks in the really lovely grounds afforded innumerable innocent opportunities for chats with the fifty more or less charming girl? of the seminary. On the whole these | were happy days. I had great chums in every class and almost every set—the gay girl who was used to plenty of admirers at home, and so, naturally, appropriated the only available candidate in that minia ture world; the shj- girl who was not used ' to being noticed and was so grateful and ! ready to be pleased, or the bright girl who helped and rested me in class. In such ; daily intercourse very many and very dif- j ferent reasons were found for friendship, and I think I may say that I numbered among my friends most of the girls at the ( "Ball," who were beyond the ordinary in any respect—pretty, graceful, or bright— j and that is why it has always seemed to j me so strange that I never could discover j "who she was." Bnt so it is; to-day lam | as much puzzled as to her identity as I was j the moment she slipped out of my arms. It was Hallowe'en and I was invited to a little party by a pretty village girl, who was a graduate of the aemii.ary. Some I mishap—Mi.>s Maggie's lover choked him self po!<bing for apples, I think—threw a damper on the party. It broke up rather early aud I reached the seminary not long I after midnight. My uucle rather discouraged my accept- | ing invitations iu the villiige, fearing. I pre sume, that my accounts of these gaieties j might render 'the girls, who were pro- i bibited from visiting, discontented. So ' v hen I went out, and came in, too, for ' the matter of that, I generally made very little fuss about it and frequently neglected mentioning the fact to my uucle at all. When on this occasion I softly turned my latch key uud opened a side door to find everything in inky darkness, my state of mind could only he expressed by an ex pletive not proper for my seminary vocab ulary. That stupid Becky when going her round of the halls had, in a fit of absent mindedness, extinguished the light in the lower hall as well as the upper one. It was no easy matter to lind one's way iu that lower hall in the dark. There were doors in every direction and three different staircases. I stood still and mentally at tempted to place them. There was the great staircase and the staircase which led to the store room. There was the vesti bule door the door to the study and to "stud}- hall," the door to the reception par lor, the doors to the girh' parlor and play room, the house-keeper's door, the corri dor which led to the dining room, and it seemed to my diseased imagination in that moment that there were a score more en trances and exits the names and positions of which I could not remember. It wouid be committing suicide to attempt to find the proper staircase in the dark. I remem bered, however, that the first door I should be obliged to pass was that of the house keeper, who proverbially slept with one eye open listening for burglars or girls making raids on the pantry. As I did not want her to rouse the house aud Uncle Joseph I crept along in the direction of the staircase, determining to light my way with matches as soon as I should be safely past that door. Meanwhile I felt my case and discovered, to my mingled dismay and amusement, that it contained one solitary match. With the determination to save this for an emergency I continued to feel niy way until at last I touched a staircase railing —but was it the right onef Xow was the time to sacrifice my match, and I confi dently drew it forth; but, alas, as I re placed the case in my pocket the match slipped from my fingers to the floor. This was most provoking, but not to lie baffled, I chopped off an impatient exclamation and stooping, set to work to find it by the sense of touch. I ran my fingers lightly over the first step without suece.-- and raised uiy hand to the second to continue my blind si-arch, when full on the bin k of in}' hand was set, smooth, cool and sort, a small baro foot. All that followed of course occupied but a very few minutes, but I have gone over every one of those minutes and they re ui iin in my memory clear and distinct. I started up in amazement, if not fright, uud, of course, the sudden movement on my part threw the foot's owner backwards ami into my arms. A dozen confused ideas ruslied through my mind, foremost among them the thought that this must lie a gen nine case of somnambulism, which in duced me to adil to the exclamation of sur prise which I had already uttered a hasty explanation us to my identity and the as surance that there was no cause for alarm To my surprise my well meant speech was met with absolute silence, though the inys terious creature now made a quick and violent effort to escape from my grasp. This proved to me that she was awake, aud also that she did not have any idea of betraying her identity. What could it mean? Not an elopement; the bare foot settled that, theory, and as I lightly ran my hand over her shoulders, which were on a level with my own, and down her arm, 1 decided without difficulty, notwith standing my absolute inexperience, that the lady's costume was arranged for the night. I have no wish to deny that the touch of the round, fi.m arm and shoulders, so palpable under their thin und fluffy cov erings, filled me with u new and strange sensation of pleasure, und even set uiy heart to beating a trifle faster than usual. In her effort to escape, her hair swept over my face; such hair I had never even dreamed of, u perfect mane of silky ten drils, full of subtle perfume like nothing else in all the world. I became suddenly determined to know who she was. Hold ing one wrist firmly I slipped my other arm around her and held her so that the perfumed mass of hair fell on my shoulders and against my face. Then 1 resumed my interrogatories. "Look here, 'my pretty maid,' we'll compromise. Vou tell me who you are and I'll ask no question about this little episode, do you ogrect" Motionless quiet followed, and then a movement which seemed to firmly rejoct the idea, and another quick effort to regain freedom. 41} mind was lost ia conjecture as U which of the girls had this capacity for • keeping qniet. One or two of mj- frk-uds among the older and graver girls I knew I to have considerable self-possession, but not one of them was capable of getting 1 herself into such a scrape;it was impossible for me to connect any one of them for a single moment with such an escapade. Of j course it was some one of :he mad cap crew with whom I had so many a jollv romp in the play room or pavilion on recreation days when Tccle Joseph was in ' town. There was no doubt that she was young. | the firm, cool flesh told that, and so did ! the wealth of her hair and the girlish slen- ' derness of ihe form which I now felt in my ' arm. I spoke again: "Tell me what is ' the matter and why you were going down I stairs; can help you to what you want." This with a thought of the pantry. ' No answer. ''l cannot let you"go unless you assure me in some way that everything is all ; right. I should, otherwise, feel myself> guilty." A contemptuous shrug of the j shoulders answered this argument. Every , one of the pretty girls of tbe school was i flitting through my brain, but somehow none of them would fit. That hair baffled i me. I cautiously tightened my clasp of : her waist, let go her wrist and took np a 1 handful of it. ft seemed alive. So soft I and yet with so much spring, what color ' could it be? Not black, it seemed too soft ' for that—nor blonde, it was too firm and : strong—the only color which seemed to me to suit this wondrous thing was auburn, rich, burning auburn. But no one had auburn hair at Morris Hall, unless it was little Sadie Jones, aud hers would have been a moro brilliant hue had she not per sistently used some sort of pomatum. I laughed to myself at the idea of connecting her with this tall, smooth creature with the wavy mane. Decided on this point, I started on one more investigation. I shut my eyes tight in hopes of iutensying my other senses,and put my hand to her face. At first she moved her head restlessly, so as to prevent my receiving any impression as to her features, but as 1 persisted she drew her self haughtily up an.! st .cd as stili as th> carved from stone Her forehead wa broad and well shaped the hang not too heavy or long, rather conservative in cut mid mentally decided. The eyes were shut so tightly that 1 could not decide or. • thc-ir size; the eyebrows were ruiher heavy: ' cheeks firm, smooth and well round; apparently thin, hut probably tightly closed; chin round and full; ears small and ringle-s throat full, soft and long—but . here my statee came to life again and shrank away from me piteou-dy. 1 felt some slight compunction, got. possession of her bands and let her stand free. "Now, don't be foolish," I whispered, "the housekeeper or Dr. Traynor himself may wake up and appear on the scene with a light at any moment, and then what will you dof" Silence. "Ju.-t promise to tell uie if I'm right and let me guess who you are!" No answer. "Well, promise to tell uie some time, in broad daylight, when you have your pret tiest frock on?'' Not a movement or a sound. I was seiz ed by an inspiration and examined every finger of the two little hunds I held. Their symmetry was not marred by a s ; ngle ring, so tnj quest was vain, but their velvet smoothness so impressed me that 1 made a mental note of it. "I think I'll have to go at ouce to ull the hall preceptresses and have the rooms searched." Absolute silence. It is inexpressibly tantalizing to hold so much sweetness in one's arms and not know whether or not it would be safe to venture the smallest, most self-restrained caress. That instant my resolve was taken. Still holding her hands iu mine, I began sternly: "Now, do you mean over in auy way to disclose to me your identity or am I to believe that you intend this little episode to remain for ever a mystery? If you are positively resolved never by look, word or action to give me the slightest clue by which I may find you—press my hand, my left hand, which holds your right." Whew! What a vicious squeeze! My seal ring made its mark, and I was con vinced that the muscles of that velvety hand were well developed! "0 very good, mademoiselle, very good. We understand each other now. You are not sufficiently my friend t'» confide in uie, that is evident, hut revenge is sweet. As you have sworn never in any way to reveal yourself you cannot of course resent any thing which may occur, and therefore I will make one more experiment ou my own behalf." I wrapped tho helpless mischief tight in j my arms. If she wa (lightened the gave j no sign, save that her breath came in | quick little gu.ip*, wh'ch I felt rather than heard. I drew the daiuty head down to my shoulder and -pre; d the tangled si!k- n net of her hair all over me, then I bei t down aud kissed bur full ou the lips. Wiia' in all the world could compare with those lips? Full, soft, quivering and half apart —her breath went lik. wine to my bead— I shivered and dropped my arm What a brute I'd been—bow *be must despise me! And she was o sweet, I could not let her go thinking so ill of uie. But she was already gone, with a little patter of her bare feet on the bard wood stairs, aud yet I whispered imploringly, "For give me, it you can; I shall never forgive myself." Notwithstanding my contrition, I listen ed painfully for the sound of her footstep in hopes that I might at least discover towards which wing she turned. Of course, the heavy carpet iu the corridor baffled me in this, and when she left the stuirs all was still. I pulled myself together, and all forgetful of my lost match, I groped my way to my own room, where f spent tbe rest of the night in going over my adveu ture and making wild plans for discovering its heroine. Iu the morning it seemed to me, so strong was my memory of tho mysterious she, that I must recognize her immediate ly. I searched each face, I studied every figure, especially I watched for a tawny mane. Alas, how different figures seeni in tight-fitting basques or flannel blouses, and what was there in a monotonous array ol pig taiU and door knobs to recall the subtle, sensuous sweep of that fragrant flossy tangle? 1 felt like giving up, but girls are always more interesting taken individually than collectively, and as I received a smile from one and another iu passing, I caught iny selffitting her into my model. Days pass ed. I cultivated every romp in school. I took to shaking bands at all possible limes, for I felt sure there could not bo another hand of such a perfect texture. I went so far as to make mild lovo to one or two of the "giddy" net in order that I might make the test moro complete, and—l must con fess my perfidy—l oven kissed one little flirt whom I discovered to have a particu larly soft band. It was twilight on tho back veranda. I shut my eyes and 1 was I satisfied. It wus not she. Once or twice I I was on tbe (mint of taking Mis* Coil stance E . my particular frit-ad among the seniors, into my confidence as to the mail, facts of the cpis.«fe. in hopes that she might help me to a notation of the problem. She r.ad character w:th Mich ease and Sad -o much influence on the best girl- of more 1 thau one >-et in the school. I felt sure that I if she would she >.ould lind my witch fur me. But she was so shrewd and in a quiet way had so much influence over me that J felt morally certain she m>uU get all tL>- fads in the case oat <<f me in two minutes and probably despise me afterward. This I conviction checked me every time I was tempted to approach the subject with her, and later on, when I became enlaced to her most intimate friend, I could not but be thankful for my discretion. Girl lovers at boarding school do not ofteu keep any thing interesting from each other, and somehow I would not have liked Le uUe to know about that girl! 01 course as time went on I gave up the idea of discovering her identity, but 1 am sure I shall never forget her, nor cease to ask myself who was she! As I have always, since I can remember, had a bosom friend. I am lather proud of the fact that one episode in my life has re mained untold. I scarcely know why I have nevci spoken of it to any of the girls, unless it was that I could not bear to have them misunderstand or criticise him. He always said I knew things without being told and understood things beforehand. However that may be. I never could judge him harshly; that is certain, or bear to hiar an}* one else do so; and Louise was always so straight-laced. Of course Louise was my beat and dear est f'-end. and anything I had to tell she usually heard. I had friends in other sets however and that last year at school, when we were put .o room in different wings. I had a good deal of fun among the "giddy girls" around me.without Louiseor any one off our corridor knowing much about it. I remember debating a loeg time whether or not I should tell Louise about the frolic planned in my end ofSonih Hall tor Hal lowe'en. She could not join if she would lor few girls had the temeritv to cross from one wing to the other after lights w ere out. 1 If she knew of it and was not with us -.hi ) would have beet; worried almost to death and there r.«s no knowing to what lengi as I her cor.fci'-nce u: <rht not have -i.iven her. ; She was th m>-t pirns little .tailing awl; a- swett as she v. :- - go.-.l So I decided rot to tell her >• iy of onr ' plans, which were a- follow-: Kir-t. to lav in provisions for a feast, which * :ts to In spread in my room; to have appl« s, eg.--. t salt, l.Ht' 1 - of twine and all the other paia phernelia for trying our fortunes ready t<- ] hand, and to bribe Becky, the house nis 1. j to put out the light ill the lower hail which u-nallv burned all night. Ah • t-> borrow Mi-s Farron's alarm clock, to wake • iny room-mate early for an extra hour ot 1 practice, and set it for twenty minutes to twelve. Then our light-- went out a- u-r a) at ten o'clock, and we all went to sleep 1 slept so soundly that the borrowed alarm j was wasted on me. and ilie first thing I knew my room mate was shaking me vig orously. The lamps were lighted and lfie door stealthily opened to admit a mothley crowd of girls in bed room slippers, night wrappers and shawls. We set to work at once and the goodies soon disappeared. Anrelia Lane had a copy of Burns' poems, with notes, which contained a full description of all the Scotch Hallowe'en ceremonies, and we followed these us closely as we could. The three dishes, one with clean, one with murky water and the third empty, were consulted, and I remember well ho* 1 laughed to find I hail three times chosen the empty dish which signified old maid dood. It seemed so very funny, as I was the only girl the crowd who was engaged. The bull of yarn was thrown from the window, where it was cuught either by in visible hands or by the rosebush below; at any rate it stuck. Apples were pared in front of the mir ror, salt cakes were baked and eaten and leud was melted and poured into a pail of water very successfully, as all the figures looked remarkably alike and so could be imagined whatever each girl chose—a sur geon's lancet, a soldier's sword, a journal ist's pen, etc. At last their remained only one spell to try, and no one seemed very anxious to try it. I finally volunteered, thinking meanwhile how horrified Louise would be if she could know. Amelia gate me minute instructions. "Take the yolk out of t his hard boiled egg and till it up with suit, then you must go d• *u :»i.s backwards, slowly, eating the egg as n u go and thinking of the one you love best. Then you mu.-t turn and come upstairs backwards. After you get back to your room you must not speak a word to any iiody, but go straight to bed, when if tbe ■ne you love it to be your fate, jon will dream of him helping you overa stream, or filling your pitcher at a well, or rescuing me from drowning, or some such thing." "No wonder," 1 remarked, "after -•wa'.- lowing all that, salt !" "But don't you dread Ihe corridor and the long flight of stairs?" asked my roommate. '•No, if Becky kept her promise, it's a'l dark, and I'm not afraid of the d. rk." Ah. but Connie, take off' tint ruglan and those slippers; it says 'in her bed gown, bare feet and flowing hair,' " ejac ulated Aurclia, as 1 took up my egg and started for the door. 1 waft rather loalli to do this, but did not like to spoil my reputation for daring, so arrayed solely .n my "Mother Hubbard," night wrapper and my long hair, which 1 shook out around me, I bade the girls a tragical adieu and sallied forth. Becky had been good as her word, everything was dark as Krebn-. By the sense of touch alone I made my way down my I.all into the corridor ami to the staircase. Grasping the banister-rail with one hand I turned and began my de scent. L'gh ! ihe bare hardwood sieps were cold ! And surely 1 heard a noise in the lower hall. "Nonsense," thought I, "there is not a soul brave enough to ven ture down here in the dark but myself, and I am half afraid!" So on I went slowly. I had made both curves in safety and that horrible egg was iilmont gone. I felt sure I was very near the foot of the stairs, horror of horrors, my foot came softly down upon—not the smooth, hard step—but something alive. The first maddening thought which took possession of me was that it must be a a mouse. This turned me to stone and froze the cry on my lips. It was always so with n.e. For a trifle I could scream like any other woman, but when anything really serious happened I was cold and still. My worst fears were instantly dis pelled, for the object of them was evident ly attached to something masculine. A moment later, having lost my balance, 1 came into violent contact with the said something—in fact it was a man and I fell into his arms. Tec, it was very dreadful, but when ottv's fears havo so far overshot the mark, one more easily becomes recon eoncilod to the lesser evil. While wild thoughts of burglars and kidnapers were chasing through my brain a most familiar voice murmured in my car: "Don't bo frightened, pray.

NO 2- Baruelofs Death. limn il. Stanley, the African explorer. .Hid hi- wife, arrived at New York on the ■teainer T. tonic last Thursday and sub letted to an interview as to u»e much di«- I , 'del i .k.i of the death of Lieut Bartte lot. who had charee of tho rear guard of •he lexpedition through Africa. The part of the interview referring to the kill ; ing is a- follows: "What did you hear about Barttelot's death V I have heard that be had been shot on July 11*. He was simply shot; not cat or mutilated. I did not see bim, a.i I did not arrive at the camp until Augnst 17th, 23 da> s afterward." hat was the cause or causes of his being killed f" ' The causes were his violent temper and constant inclination to qnarrel. He had been away from the camp of the rearguard lor sometime. At tbe time of the Wiling he had just returned from Stanley camp and his presence seemed to destroy the harmony that had prevailed during his absence. "On the lftth of July Barttelot beat one of the Zannihari chiefs and disturbed the ■ amp generally. Bonny went to him and said he would manage the camp as long as he had been in charee of it. "On the morning of July 19th, just at Barttelot was disturbed from hia sleep by the b-atuig of a drum and by some one Ringing. He sent a Souuaneso to find out what tbe noise was atiu to stop it. TLe sergeant returned and repo.ted tha : Le could not find ont what it was. Barttelot 'lieu sent his little black N.'J to see WW was disturbing him. The boy re'iiT'.ed and said : 'lt is a woman singing uud some men drumming an ac companiment ' thio being the way the na tivc* celebrate the breaking of day in some . arts of tbe dark continent. Barttelot thereof on jumps up and says be will stop noise ai d shoot the first one who does ; ot obey him. "With a revolver in one hand and a ..ointcd stout wood staff in the other, he arted toward tbe woman who was sing ■g. lie commanded her to stop. She .epton drumming, only looking up at hitn ir. n defiant manner, knowing that every ody in the camp dislikes him. Again : .iitellot telle her to stop aud gives ber a prod with hi snsrp stick.

In an • iistant he thrusts his irun through the 1 >ophole of th< hut and jhooU Barttelot dead. i . • "The whole t'nug -.vjs done in a spirit of anger. Th<-r. vas no premeditation. He o u jusL a* as you or I would have done under the circnm-tances. I did not rely on the written statement of Mr. Bonny for ml this. I heard the same from the Arabs, t'ie Zanzibari.-. and otuer men—over 500 of ilu-iii altogether—ami tbey certaiuly had no .1-j.it in telling the story different from what it. was after tiioir enemy was dead."
