m A STAGE COACH.
It was midsummer in the mountain?
and Lilian Ferguson ha.l never seen a
fairer scene than the billows of blue
hills that lay stretched out before her,
with here and there the flash of a half
hidden lake, or the ribbon-dike glitter
of a tiny river.

who was bustling in and out. "The

miss," explained Mrs. Peck. "A

"No, calculate not," said Mrs

Peck, peering down the winding road,
which her experienced eye could (race,
when no one's else was of any avail.
'It's a-comin' now!"
Hut Lilian Ferguson, who had been
gazing at the newcomer earnestly, now
came forward with an eager smile and
an outstretched hand.
Surely i am not mistaken," said
she, "and this is Kulali - Morton?"
"Lilian Ferguson! Oh. you darling,
I am so glad to see you!" cried the
stranger. "Hut where on earth did
you come from?"
And thus met the two lovely girls
who had graduated just a year ago
from Madame l)e 'J'ournaire's fashion
aide boarding-school in New York, and
who had not seen each other since.
Just at this moment, however, there
was no time for explanations. The
ponderous stage, relic of a forgotten
generation, rolled up., with a creak of
leathern curtains, tramp of horses, and
a general confusion of arrival, to the
broad wooden steps of the hotel.
The sun was already down. In the
twilight, Kulalie and Lilian could only
dis.eover'that the stage contained but
one other occupant, a man, who leaned
back in tne far corner, with the top of
his face partially hidden by a largi-
wide-brimmed hat, and its lowpr part
wrapped in the folds of a Persian silk
He inclined his head courteously as
they entered, and moved a handsoina
traveling-case which lay on the middle
s -at, as if to make room for them.
-Is there another passenger?" said
Miss Morton, with a little, nervous

"I had hoped we should have the stage

settled herself in the moss comfortable
corner, "tell me what this unexpected

"What a singular coincidence!" said
Miss Morton, shaking her cherry-colored

bachelor at Chessington Hall."
Lilian colored, hotly.
"Neither of whom I ever expect to
meet," said she.
"It will bo your own fault if you
don't," observed Miss Morton. "Why.

"Kulalie, how can you talk so?" cried
Lilian Mushed and indignant. "I am

"The more goose you, to neglect such
an opportunity as this," said Kulalie,
laughing. "If you don't try for the
widower, shad! (Jrovo U iokery is
only half a icilefrom Chessington Hall,

solve the J r iblem of my life at mice.''
"Thu is too ridiculous, Kula'ie!" said
Lilian. "1 could not respect myself if
I were to plot and plan like this. 1
know it is unjust; but you have made
me dislike Mr. Chessington already."
"The more the better." said Miss
Morton. "There will be all the bi-tter
chance for me. They say he is very
handsome: anil one could easily send
the two children away to boarding
school. I can assure you, I'll have no
old-maid aunts and interfering uncles
about the premises."
"Kulalie, let us talk of something
else." said Lilian, resolutely. "Tell me
all that has happened to you since
Kulalie laughed out a merry, ringing
"Well, if you must know," said she,
'I've been trying my best to get a nice
husband, but without any success."
"Is matrimony, then, the en ! and

"As far as I tun concerned --yes," ac
knowledged Miss Morton, with charm
"Pardon me, Kulalie," said Lilian,
"but it seems to me that you h tve de

Miss Morton yawned.
"How tedious all this is!'- said she.
! "Miss Ferguson turned lecturer, eh?
How I wish that poor fellow in the
corner wasn't deaf and dumb! I'd tlirt
with him, just to aggravate you, Lily!"
Lilian inado no answer, she leaned
her head out of the stage window, and
watched the purple dusk creep up the
mountain side, counting the stars t.s
one by one they shone out. Anything
was better than Eulalie's shallow

Miss Morton bade her old schoolmate an

The deaf-and-dumb gentleman left
the stage very soon. Miss Ferguson
watched with some interest, but no
carriage of any description seemed to
be watting for him.
He disappeared into the woods like a
shadow, and vanished from her sight.
"I suppose, poor fellow, that he lives
near here," thought she. "How dread
ful it must be, thus to be cut off from

Hut even while these reflections pass
ed through her mind, tha stage stopped
again, before a glittering facade of
lights, half-veiled in swaying summer
foliage Chesshigton hall.
"Here you are, miss," said the driver.
Through the summer evening dusk,
Lilian could see the marble-railed ter
race and the broad carriage-drive, while
two child-figures danced up and down,
and uttered joyful exclamations of wel
comelittle Blanche and Alice Ches
ington. "Are you the new governess?"' said
they. "A re you Miss Ferguson? Wel
come welcome to the Adirondack!
We are so glad that you have come!"
And in an instant their arms were
twined around Lilian's neck.
At the end of it month Lilian Fergii
son felt completely and thoroughly at
home with her new pupils.
They had ranged the woods, and vi:.
ited all the grottos and cascades; they
had gtirrouniied her with an atmos
phere of the sweetest affection.
Mrs. ll.irtleigh, their mint, was
ciiially kind; and Alfred llartleigh,
theintcrestingyoiing uncle, had already
taken her into his confidence i s to the
beautiful bride he was going to bring
Hut it certainly was vc-y strange
that she had never seen Adrian I 'hess
ington himself, the father of her lovely
little pupils. I'nlil one pleasant morn- -ing,
when, just as she had come mil to
receive Miss Fiilald- Morton, who had i
driven over in the (irove llookery car-
riage to call, a tall, handsome gentle-
man entered the room, with Mrs.
llartleigh on his arm.
"The deaf-and-dunib gentleman!" :
Lilian involuntarily exclaimed.
"Poor fellow, so it is!" said Miss i
Morton, who advanced airily, shaking I
out the light muslin flounces of her j
dress. "How he does haunt us, to-be- '

('apt. Thomas A. Scot t, of New Lon

the schooner Teazer in New Haven
harbor, last spring, -ays the New

; his business, and carries on the largest
individual wrecking concern in the
'country. He is a large, genial, daring
person, and one to w'.oto the incessant
dangers of a diver's life are fascinating,
i Wherever a wreck occurs on the coast
, from Martha's Vineyard to Harnegat,
the gallant captain is generally called
in counsel, and he never gives up a

I Captain Scott's latest task has been
: the locating of the barge President,
containing 11 tons of block tin and -JO
tons of steel wire. This cargo was en
route to New Haven from New York,
where it had been reshipped by the im
porters, and wtn in charge of the New
York Lighterage Company. The Presi
dent vviis being towed in company with
other barges, and it is believed that she
struck a rock oil pcntield reef, near
i Bridgeport. Captain seott was offered
'' $l'"00 to locate the vessel, the value
of its freight amounting to a very huge
i figure. His lishing for her has
j been conducted on a very extensive
J scale. Search for the vessel was begun
' off Southport, nearly three miles from
slmre, and at lirst a clean sweep of the
! bottom was made toward Stratford

miles in length. Two tugboats, the T.

with several miles of stout lines, colt,

Science in Hie lliiftlioldi Statue.
In erecting the gr rat statue of Lib
erty two things had to be considered
that seem very trilling, and yet, if ne
glected, might destroy the statue in
one day, or cause it to crumble slowly
to pieces. One is the sun, the other
is the sea-breeze. Hither of these
could destroy the great copper figure,
and something must be done to pre
vent such a disaster. The heat of the
sun would expand the metal and pull
it out of .shape precisely as it does pull
the P.iooklyu liridgo out of shape every
day. The bridge is made in four parts,
and when they expand with the heat
of the sun they slide one past the otlier,
and no harm is done. The river span
rises and lalls day and night, as heat
and cold alternate. The great copper
statue is likewise in two parts, the
framework of iron and the copper
covering; ami while they are secun ly
fastened together, they can move one
over the other. Kach bolt will slip a
tritte as the copper expands in the hot
August sunshine, and slide back again
when the freezing winds blow and the
vast figure shrinks together in the
cold. Hesides this the copper surface
is so thin and elastic that it will bend
slisrhtly when heated, yet keeping its
general shape. The sa t air blowing
in from the sea hits thin lingers and it
bitter, biting tongue. If it linds a
crack where it can creep in between
the copper surface and iron skeleton,
there will be trouble at mice. These
metals do not agree together, and
where there is salt moisture in the air
they seem t quarrel more bitterly
than ever. It seems that every joining
of points of copper and iron makes a
tiny battery, and so faint shivers of
electricity would run through all the
statue, slowly corroding and eating it
into dust. This curious, silent, and
yet sure destruction must be prevented,
and so every joint throughout the
statue, wherever copper touches iron,
must be protected with little rags
stuffed between the metals to keep
j them from quarreling. It is the same
wherever two different metals touch
jut bother. Imagine what a treinen
dus battery Hie Liberty would make,
with its tons of copper surface and
I monstrous skeleton of iron. However,
a little care prevents all danger, a

She cou-eitted, and drank the glass
first given her with a relish. "Ah!

"Hut, madam, you have drank it al
