From, Grace, Tiny would take an angry look, cr even an unde- served reproof, 1 so patiently, that they somet.mcs thought that she was too good to live, but any trespa-s on her rights by others woull be resented in a manner that dispelled all fears of aa earlv death for their darling, and proved her to. be a very human little girl, indal.. She loved ' to romp and play as a healthy child should, but tat a call from Grace she would kave the most fascinating sport. Iler ster Mary sometimes sail to hr mother; "If you weren't just the best . mother in the, world, you would be jealous of Gracr.f One would think that, with so much love following her everywhere, Grace would be the best of listers, but 1 am sorry to say she was not, She often thought Ttnya caresses tiresome, and repulsed the little g.rl in a manner that brought tears to her eyes, and a" grieved look to th3 sweet MtJe mouth, but unwilling to be a bother to the sister she loved so dearly, she would merely say, Tiny 'ill go way, Dacie," and - leave her until' she was sure of a welcome back. . .Many weve the errands on which the willing feet ran for lazy Grace, and many the little services of love un loosed for, but one day, and not until . that day, Grace realized how much her wee sister loved her, and net until then did she begin to return that love s she ouht, , - One bright Saturday in September Mary and Grace attended a picnic with others of their own age. lefore they start e I T ny pleaded so hard to go that, to reconcile htr staying at hom?, Grace slipped - from her finger a beautiful emerald ring, and tied it to a "narrow ribbon which she .hung around Tiny's neck. This pleased the child very much, for the ring was a present from a valued . friend, and Tiny was seldom allowed to touch it, and now to have the privi-l-gtof wearing it all day! Kiwing h-r, and bidding her be careful , of it, Grace left her supremely happy. Her l a piness was of short dura tion, however, for ia the afternoon one of her playmates came over, and to e -tluT they roamed ab ut at their own rwe.t wiLS.

Mrs. Thornton tried to comfurt her, but It was a sorrowful face with which ".Tiny a waited her sister's return. When Grace appeared Tiny ran to her and to d her all her voice choked with tears.

When she entered the store he took heron his lap, and seeing her sorrow- nu lace, inquire.! tne cau e. bhe told him of her loss and ber desire to repay it, but her loval little heart cud not dream of telling of Grace's un cindness. r one says i j nasn t dot money enough tc pay for her wing, but I des I has.

She told us so years ado, when we was so little." ; i v j "Very well,' then," said Mr. Cole, trying to control! his laughter at her quaint way of speaking; " we will try to find one like Grace's." He brought forward a case of emeralds, and then continued, "Uut pray tell rue, how old are you, since your mother g ive yo i such good advice so many years ago? Uut Tiny heeded him" not, for the selection of a ring absorbed her atten tion. After some hesitation one simi lar to Grace's, though not as hand some, was chosen. 1 "I will put it in a box, and you must keep a tig'it ho!d of it. Dou't lose it." She promised to l e very care ful and left the ! store happy, for she considered her troubles nearly at an end. - j i "I will sp?ak! to her father, this evening,'! thought Mr. Cole, taking the money from the counter. Heedless of everything but her joy at giving pleasure to Grace, Tiny ran up the street until she came to the crossing. A crowd had collected, being drawn by a tea u of horses that were running down the street, but Tiny saw nothing but the ring in her hand. . Oh, why was there no one to stay the little feet just then ! Did no one see the tiny figure cussing the street. while thi mad! horses, racing on. nearedit? Ab.no! . Mr. Cole, drawn by the cries of the excited crowd, reached the street just in time to see his little friend knocked down bythe horses. - . The beautiful ifase lay quite still upon the earth, arid it seemed as though the faithful little heart had ceased to beat;, but no, God was go d to Grace Thornton, for the' child was stunned-- not dead. j Mr. Cole sprang" forward, , caught T:ny from the ground, aid asking a j hsician, who had just arrived on the scene of the accident, to follow him, carried Tiny home. ' - r Grace was at the sitting-room win dow, si wing, when the bell rang. .Not waiting for Uetty to go she weat to the door herself, but up.n owning it she started back in horror, and losing all self-control, exclaimed: "Mamma! mamma! Tiny Is dead!" bringing the whole fa.nily to the door. There in the arms of Mr. C 13 was their darl.ng Tiny, they then thought, dead. . , t After one quick gasp Mrs. Thornton regained her composure and led the way to tha sitting-rojm, wle-o Mr. Cole laid his precious burden on the lounge. Seeing he could do no more Mr. C le left and the doctor com menced an examination of Tiny's in juries. He founl her right arm broken, but so badly crushed that he would al low no one to see it; then saying he was going for a sistanre he Itft t!em.

A bright green spnrMe shone out from the black velvet of the box, for the lid ha I come off. ' . Then the meaning of Tiny's ques, tion in regard to the prie of her ring andof her errand with the money lank came over her. With a cry of remorse she flung herself down beside the lounge. ' ! , "She is dead, and I have killed her r I have killed her I" then fainted for the first time in her life. With Rob's assistance she was taken to her room, while Mary stayed with her, doing her best to bring her to. which she succeeded in doing after a short time. j ' l The doctor having returned wHh a fellow physician, the family were re quested to leave thi room, after which the physicians consulted together. Their decision was that the arm being so badly crushed, rendered amputation 'How tothe ASHEVILLE, necessary. When this was- told Mrs. Thornton, she grew white as sha said: "Oh,Doctor ! must it be?" with such aa agonized look that the kird- hcarted doctor would have riven a great deal had he been able to revoke the decision. i Tiny's first conscious words were in inquiry of Grace, and the next an e clamatioa of pain as slie attemiited to lift her arm. : When tolJ that her arm was broken and she! must not move. he asked for the ring, the doctor hav ing taken it from her: and aa Kim rasped it tightly in her hand, j Dacie will love me now, won't she- mamma?" - . i.

The mother coming in shortly after, was pleased to see them both sleeping peacefully, the arm of the el ler thrown protectingly around; the younger. Grace's promises of devoting herself to her sister were not vain, forshe was in deep earnest.. It needed such & shock as she hai recti ved to shake off the selfishness that marred her other wise good cl aract r, for hers was a strong nature, and she. entered heart and soul into the self-appointed work 1 befor her. : ; From that time she allowed no one A . . . l. n K 1 n n n Tinv'o VtA-fo?A waiting on her with j the greatest promptness, and anticipating hern : slightest wish.

American Stat are. ! ,' Mr. Georere W. Peckham, teacher qI biology in the Milwaukee highschooL has been making investigations under . the auspices of the "Wisconsin State board jof h(alth Into the growth of children. From examinations and measi urements made chiefly in the schools of Milwaukee he hat deduced the con clusion that the relative rate of growth of tlie sexes is such1 that boys are taller till the twelfth ;ear and heavier tijl, the thirteenth, after which, .between thirteen and fifteen, the girls are both , taller and heavier, f ' After the1 ago of fifteeni however, the boys exceed the girls , both in weight and . stature. Girls cease to grow when about seven teen years of age. Children pf pure American descent are taller than child ren of foreign-born parents, but are . generally o lighter, weight than child ren of German parents. The children cf Irish parents are also taller than those of German parents. Comparing his result with those of similar obser vations made in Uoston, he concludes "tharsenwr children in Milwaukee are taller than those in Bostour 3 boya I weigh , more, but -the girls of Uoston are slightly; heavier than those . of Milwaukee. The superiority, in height of the Milwaukee children is ascribed to the inferior . density population and the existence of fewer urban disadvantages in that city than Uoston; and the general hypothesis is drawn, from Mr. Peckham's tables, that the height of American-born men is more modified bythe' conditions ac enmfianvinflr density than by aU other influences, race' excepted, urt)an life as Tir!rahiv modiDea pt resiueuco this country tnrougu one gcuwauuu, and Jin intermarriage between Ameri cans: and Germans, the offspring seem to take the height of the taller;parent Popular science Moniniy. , ; i Kormon Chi; eh Songs. : ; tW a descriDtion of the ladies of Salt Lake City,a writer in LippincoWs Mag azine says that many of the 3Iormoa. wonien are highly educated and ac complished, and that poetesses are ommott.
