point of communication, with nothing
but the distance to prevent their inti

except electrically, and were total
strangers to each other till one New
Year's morning, when it occurred to
Miss Pearl to send the following tele
gram to her nearest neighbor and fellow-
laborer: "To Lucy Lorillard A happy you could die for him !"

cause she was idle, as hers was a branch

The answer returned promptly:
" Thanks. The same to you, and more
also. If wishes were horses, etc." 1
"father slangy," thought Pearl,
but good-natured. I guess she has a
brother at home." And so the ice, once
Ihawed, had no chance to stiffen acain

"You do know how to put an
tinguisher upon sentiment. "
Pearl: "I've got something dreadful
to tell you."
" And bad news travels fast."
" I've got a lover."
" I knew that before. What's dread

" Oh, I don't want him ; he's old.

" And I say you shan't."
" He walks with a crutch, but Aunt
Hidden says I can ride in my carriage.
He is deaf, but she reminds me that I
am not dumb. He wears a scratch, but
after this. There was little business, as might be my grandfather."
l said, going over the lines from Jones
Station to Nineveh, and as the operator
at the last named place seemed likewise
to have unlimited leisure on hand, the
two held frequent electrical iete-a-tefea,
and Pearl bogan - to feel as if she had

-where there were three cousins and an
aunt, but no uncle now. . She could
never exactly tell how it oame about, but
gradually, from exchanging pretty civili
ties and pleasantries and the news of the
day across the wirys, she found herself
presently telling this Lucy Lorillard,
upon wnom sne had never set eyes, al
most everything she knew and felt and

riences and confidences nnd words of
comfort in return from said Lucy Loril

" Liz and Aunt Hidden went to Squire
Gable's funeral. I had a nervous head

"Ah, sits the wind in that quarter?
They sent for me to be present at the

"You might have seen the grand

and thought it wouldn't be so difficult
to fall in love with him as with the

though he isn't my beau ideal."
C" Let those laugh who win."
Miss Liz was wondering if the squire's
nephew would settle down in the old
place or go skylarking over the world,
and if Parson Longmeter would bring
him to call, or how she should contrive
to make his acquaintance, and whether
green or blue became her complexion
best, like the foolish milkmaid in the
story; while Aunt Hidden's mouth was
watering on account of the old china and
silver ware at Gable Hall, ''that might
as well have been in the family as not,"
she grumbled. "And there wasn't a
track in the carpets nor a scratch on the
furniture, and I've no doubt there's silks
that would stand alone folded away in
the attic, and nobody the better."

Cruelty to Cattle:
The Cleveland society for the pre
vention of cruelty to animals has re
ceived a letter calling attention to the
ill-treatment to which animals are sub
jected during transportation. The story
is as old as it is disgraceful, and it is
strange that when such practices as it re
hearses are made known to the public
some action is not taken to suppress
them. It is generally known that cattle
coming from the West are transported
in cars which are packed so full of them
that they cannot lie down at all, and

long standing, and is probably not con

This printed form, which purports to be
a bill of sale, is really only a lease of
the machine, and one of its clauses em
powers the companies to instantly seize
the machines upon any default in any
payment, and to declare all the money
already paid iorfeited. This power is
maliciously used. Within a week, fif
teen women whose machines had been
seized by one company complained to
the Protective Union. One of them
paid G3 of the $66 originally due, and
had tendered the other $3 a day or two
after it was due. Another paid $102 out
of $110. Her machine was then seized.
A friend paid the remaining 88, but the
company refused to give up the machine
unless $20 " interest ", was handed in.
A third case was still worse than these.
A sewing woman bought a machine, for
which she was to . pay $30, and which
was to be kept in thorough repair by the
sellers during a year. Before this time
had expired, she sent it to be put jn
order. She had already paid $84. When

cause of much of the disease which pre

years ago was the way in which they
were treated on their way to market be
fore they left Texas. They were made
to perform long journeys in such haste
as to ruin them and spread a sort of cat

lime attention was called to tne neces
sity of putting a stop to this cruelty and
false economy if we did not wish to
suffer its physical effects in our own

portation it would pay to have cattle
cars so arranged that each animal could
lie down in its stall, have food and wa

and infamous way. The improvement
in the condition of cattle would more
than compensate for the additional ex

such cars, and there was no good rea
