Her husband, sitting in hi study, glanced up at her bright, flushed face, with sombre eyes full of past nunio ries. "Is the world coming to an end?" saucily demanded Harry, as sho Hung the purple cluster on the t;thle "f"i" I inn sure thai nothing clsn ran account for such a solemn fare as yours, lulian." lie tried to smile. ' Y u have been in the woods all day, Harry ? " he said, "Where else .should 1 be?" retorted the young wife, whom ho hid married because slio was such an embodied sunbeam. -'You don't catch me pok. ing myself iiji in the house when nil the world is so lull of brightness!" lint she looked half doubtfully at him as she spoke. "Now you are going to scold me!" she said, with a pretty uplifting of her hands, as if to ward off some verbal onslaught. 'I can sen the stern wordd rising ii)) to your lips." AA111 1, then, so stern with you?" he uttered. "If so, it is quite unin tentional. Xo, Many, I am not going to scold you." Fur he remembered that Harry was only eighteen, and that he was eight-and-thirty. Harry came and perched herself on h s knee. ".lulian," she said, with a sudden bnr.t of penitence, "i am sorry!" "Sorrv! ami for what?" He put his hand caressingly on her blonde curls, as he might have stroked a pretty infant's head. "I meant to practice to-dav," she pleaded, ' and to read a whole chapti r in 'Maeaulay's History of England,' and to darn your stockings in the con vent stitch that Aunt Prudence taught me; but when I got out in the sun shine 1 forgot it all. Oh, Julian, I shall never le.-rn to be a companion to you! " And she glanced ruefully around at the drifts of paper and open folios on tlie desk, and her radiant face glo.mied over suddenly, as she caught sight of a tiny photograph lying close by his nkstand. "Julian!" she exclaimed, abruptly, 'why did you marry me?" "Is that so hard to guess, little one ? " "Yes, but why ?" she persisted. "I am so Billy and shallow -that is ex actly what Mrs. Meredith calls me and my poor little groveling soul can never reach up to the height of yours. Oh, don't try to comfort me I un derstand it all," with another sidelong glance at the holograph. "You loved hrrl She wa a true wife to you. I am only a jdayth ng!" "Have I ever said so, Harry V" "A score of tunes!" cried Harry, get tiny; more and worn excited, while the deep roses burned vividly on her cheeks. Not in actual words perhaps, but Oh, Julian, why did I ever marry a widowei? SShe is as much my rival now as if she was a liv ng and breathing woman. Julian, I Aafehcr!" "Harry! Harry!" "Give me that picturel" cried tho young wife, snatching the photograph from tho desk, and retreating a pace or two, as if sho feared to be pursued "It shall not lie beside you at your wor You shall not carry it next ou heart when you go out of "the! room!" she paused as if expecting a volley j f renionstrancj.s perhaps a stern re I roof but he rever spoke a word, lb- only I hike. I a her with sail, grave i eyes, 1 "Julian," shi hesitated, more en treatingly, "may I have it the photo graph ?" "Yes," he answered. "I can remem ber how she louked, without any counterfeit presentment. Yes, you may have it, Harry, if that is your de sire." And Harry vanished out of the room, half-delighted, haif-terrilied, at what she had done. Swift as any ar row she darted down to a cool, shady nook, at tlu foot of the garden, where a crystal trou'--: i i i gurgled under the sha low o.' a v; ; itiy of elm leaves, andatwi ted root formed a sort of rustic seat. ".Shall I fling it into tho stream '" she asko I herself, ".shall I tear it up V" Hut as she looke I at the soft, calu features, a gentler mood crept over her. "How wicked and babyish I am!" she said. No, no! I will not tear up your face, swaet saint. 1 should have lovul you, too. if you ha I been living will try to love you now, because lie loved you! Look down from your throne in heaven, dear, white-robed angel, and help me to be worthy to sit in your seat at his hoard, to share four plaeo in his heart!" And glancing fearfully around her, lest she should bo obierved, she kissed the photograph once, twice, thres times, and placed it in her bnsoni. Wneu she came hack to the house she was quieter and more silent than usual, but she did not offer to give back the photograph to her husband. Was she jealous of it still ? And Julian Morny went quietly on with his student labors --ti e labors in I which his first wife had shared so in- teMigently and helpfully. II'! hid ove I his beautiful F.vango j lino so truly an I passionately, she had j been so entirely a part of his existence, ! ihat when sjjj died it seemed impossi ble that he could ever place another i woman in the empty niche of her i being.

So he married the smiling young beauty, and the only grief that can kered his heart was Harry's insano unreasonable jealousy of her dead rival's memory Ju'ian whs no expert in leading the hieroglyphics of a woman's heart! "Harry," he would say, with a pained expression upon his face, "if I you loved me, you would not talk in j this way." j "It is because 1 do lovo you that 1 cannot help talking in this way," she j remonstrated, and then her tender, I coaxing little artifices would be re ! doubled. I "If you would only forgit her," j pleaded Harry -"if you would only 'tell me that I am past and present both to you." Hut he smiled and shook his head. "Sweetheart," he would say, "ynu are the sunshine of my present. With my past no living touch can meddle. Is not that enough V" "No!"' Harry cried, "it is not enough!" And after she had taken triumphant possession of the picture, a new shadow seemed to darken silently on his forehead. Ho was as tender as ever to the child-wife, whoso presence lent such fascination to his home. He did not ask for the return of the photograph, but he felt that there was something missing at his side. He had declared that he could re member Kvangeline without the pic ture, and yet he longed with an unut terable longing to look once more upon her face. He resolutely guarded himself from sitting in judgment on the lovely little sprit" who loved him with such way ward unreasoning affection; and yet he could not but feel that Harry had been cruelly unjust to Evangeline. So he left off thinking about it at all, anil applied himself steadfastly to the studies which had always formed the main occupation of his life. "Julian!" It was a stormy night -mid-January with the snow-llakes whirling wildly through the darknrss, and a tumultuous wind howling in the tree tops. He hail been writing long and steadily, and had leaned back in his chair for a rest of hand and brain, when Harry came in, attired in the black-velvet d ress which ho had given her. and wearing at her round, white throat a little cross of diamonds. The husband's serious face bright ened at the fair vision. . "Why, my pet!" ho exclaimed, cap turing the hand that was laid lightly ' on his shoulder; "what is tho meaning j of this extraordinary brilliance of cos- J tnine? Is there to be a party or j ceremonious dinner?" j "Neither," Harry answered, "Hut . it is my ic-day. Do you rrimiubcr what anniversary this is, Julian? Ten years ago, to-day, you were married to F.vangeline Sedley." "I remember it, Harry," ho said, sadly. "Come !" Mie took hi:s hand with imperious enderness and led him to the little drawing-room, where hot -house llowers were arranged in all tho vases and wax candles burned. Above the mantle hung a crayon picture of his dead wife, siniling at him liko a living face. "Kvangeline!" he cried. "Her viry face! Oh, Harry, where did you gel it ?" "It is my anniversary gift to yoi, Julian," she said. "I had it taken from your little photograph. Is it not sweet? Is it not holy in its expres sion ?" "How can I thank you for it?" he said, in broken accents. "Hul you in list let. mo keep the photograph," pleaded Harry, with tears j in her eyes. "I have learned to love I it. It is my guardian angel, my sweet ' companion and counselor. Oh, I cau- not part with it now.'" And drawing it from her bosom, she kissed it reverently. "Harry my Harry!" said the hus band. "What has wrought this ehatigo in your heart?" 'Kvangelino's face," she answered, in a whisper. lie drew her tenderly to his heart. "."sweetheart," he said, "this was all that was lacking to complete my per fect happiness." Wit h his arm still about her waist. he looked up at Kvangeline's picture. "I love you both with tho same love," ho answered, impressively. And Harry was content at last. Helen Forrest Urares. Industry anil Intelligence. An industrious man will naturally be an intelligent one. He will become deeply interested in all subjects, read all available matter pertaining to his occupation, and by observing how the experience of others coincides with his own, enlarge his views, become en couraged in his labors, and using the brains and strength (bid has given him. will in the end bo successf il. See what the exercise of intelligence and industry have dme in our own land. One short century ago the country was covered with vast forests and inhabited by wild men and animals. Now, mark the contrast; our large densely populated cities, excellent sys tem of laws for protection of t licit inhabitants, thi net-work of railways over the continent, numberless large factories and many institu ions of re ligion and learning of which we nrf justly proud. What l as made this change? The industry and intelligence of working men. To be sure "nothing is impossible to him who wills," cannot apply to all. Subordinate places are to be tilled, and if men of humble abilities beco'iie discontented through the in flueuci, of this high pressure system, the misapplication of it naturally be comes a matter of lasting regret. Let us all try to be somebody, but let that somebody be just what nature in tended us to be. Someone h s said, tho most valuable lesson one learns is, "to do what ought to bo done, when it ought to be dono whether he likes it or not. ( ertainly this is most beneficial advice. Following it will ameliorate the ills of our present condition anil lead to self-advancement. St, Louis 2Vagn;inr. Its Vast txlenl. Nearly all schoolboys are familiar with tho fine passage from a speech by Daniel Webster in wh'ch he alluded to the territorial extent of Great Britain's possessions. Ho spoke of the morning drum-beat keeping company with the hours and saluting tho llag of Great Britain as the sun journeyed around the earth. Sir Richard Temple, at the scientific meeting at Montreal, read a paper on the vast extent of the Knglish power. One fifth of the habitable globe was under tho sway of (Jut-en Victoria. Her subjects number 315, 000,000, and Australia and Canada have room for two hundred million more. The annual revenue of the em pire amounts to $1,018, (MM ,000. Loea' taxes swell this sum $: 105,001 ,()i0 more, so that the entire cost of gov ernment is about 7.50 per capita an nually. These are impressive figures; but our own. country is rapidly- over taking Great Britain in wealth ami population. Our relative increase is much greater.

The coal dust is mixed with pitch ami the mixture pen. red into cups attached to a belt, each cup conta ning just enough material for a brick of the size desired. The belt in its movement passes this material through a chamber, where P. is exposed to steam, which fuses the two substances into a homogeneous mass. Thin is poured by the descent of the belt into molds, where it is suiijee.' ed to an enormous pressure by a hydraulic press, or by machinery set in motion by a steam engine. The brick is square in form, its thickness being about one-third of itsotherdimensions, and its weight live, ten, or fifteen pounds.
