EAltXIXG IIEK OWN LIVING.
; It was a Jepipestuous nigU in
November. The carved Dutch clock
in Judge Harrison's study had just
struck. 9. Jiulge Harrison himself, an
austere-looking, silver-haired man, sat
upright in his chair, gazing coldly at
his guest. J
! 'Well Bald Dr. Hooper, pulling on
his gloves, 'of course, it isn't for me,
or any one else, to interfere in family
iuatters. But your grandchild is left
totally unprovided for, sir.' 1
I cannot help that said the Judge,
frigidly f Eight years ago I offered to
support the child, and her father, too,
if he would only consent to leave that
outlandish foreign wife of his. He
married her against my will he clung
to her against my will. Let him abide
by his decision '
'It's only natural, Judge, thatu
man should cleave unto his wife
urged the doctor.
'It is only natural, then, that a man
should provide for the child of that
wife, Dr. Hooper. At all events I
shall assume no further responsibility!'
'But Judge Harrison, you are a
rich man I' v
'Granted but jis I made my money
myself, I feel that I have a right to
spend it to suit myself I'
; 'Hilda is a fine girl pleaded Dr.
'No doubt, no doubt, but you will
pardon me if I feel no very great
anxiety to see the child of the Ger
man singing woman who stole my
son's heart away from me.'
Dr. Hooper hesitated.
. . . 'Judge he said, at last, in a tone
of appealing earnestness, 'you have
another grand daughter. .
'I have. My daughter's icliild
Marian Lennox,' makes it her home
'And yet you would deny a similar
home to 3Iilda Harrison ?'
Judge Harrison'1- shaggy white
brows met in a straight, frowning
line. J . ,
Doctor said he, 'you will fail tol
make the distinction between a duti
ful child and one who has been un
dutiful.' i 'Let me see Miss Lennox saitl Dr.
Hooper. 'Let me interest her in the
fact of this desolate, unknown cousin.
She has a woman's heart in her bosom.
I am sure I can move her !'
Judge Harrison smiled coldly as he
touched a smaJJ gilded call-bell' which
stood on the table beside him.

I obeyed. : ;
In another minute a tall, princesslike-girl
stood in the room a girl
with hair of pale gold, deep, j blue
' eye8,f like azure stars, and a dress of
s soft blue silk that fell ijj picturesque
, foldV about her, and trailing noise
'i lessly over the carpet as she walked.
i: 'Marian said the Judge, 'this is

plead the cause of your Uncle Severn's

and the child home, if he would but
leave the siren who had blighted ail
his life. Now he iVdead, and has left
his child unprovided for. I say as he
has sowed, so let the child reap. What
do you say ?' :f
'I think grandpapa is qufte right
, said - Marian, in a soft, sweet voice.
.'Grandpapa is always right!'
'Then -ou have no word to speak
for tius lonely little orphan ! cried
out Dr. Hooper, deeply indignant.
Marian laid her ringed hand upon
that of Jiergrandfather and nestled
close to him.
'I always defer my judgment to
tthat of grandpapa said she and
Judge Harrison, passi ng h is arm arbu nd
the girl's waist, looked with ill-concealed
triumph at' the luckless special
Dr. Hooper bowed, spoke his adieux
i When he returned to his own hum
ble residence, a dark-eyed eirl met
i him at the door.
; 'Have you seen him Boctori-my
. grandfather?' she cried, eagerlyj
Dr. Hooper nodded.
'It's of no use though said he.
'The bid man has a heart like granite

Hilda Harrison set her 11
! We),', said she, 'then I must man
'oge to provide for myself.' 1
'Xo hurry, lass ; no hurry said the
ihindly little doctor, 'Go tell the! wife
to bring mc a cup of coffee before I
start out again
'Hilda he said,
sat toasting his fee
presently, as he
before the fire,
with his wife knitting opposite, and
Judge Harrison's granddaughter lean
ing against the window, and looking
out into the stormy darkness, 'what
are you going to do V
'L don't think I quite know, Doc
'You are sixteen ?'
'Sixteen and a Jhalf, sir
'And you cannot teach V
'Oh, dear, no, sir!' Hilda shook
her head decidedly. 'I had no chance

'Nor sew ?' j
'Not well enough to adopt it for a
'Then, for all I can see, there is
nothing left but to go into domestic
'I would take a rjlace to-morrow
Doctor, if I could gcta good home
and decent wages said Hilda quickly.
'Good said Dr. Hooper. 'That is
the right spirit; child!! I don't fear bu
what you'll make your way, in one
direction or another, j But I think I
can see something a little more prom
ising ahead for you than that
'What is it, Doctor ?'
'I noticed the way yon took care of
your poor father, Hildia, in his last
illness. I thought then that you would
make a good nurse-fl think so now.
There is an opening in St. Francesca's
Hospital. A good home and a dollar
a day.' t
- 'As nurse, Doctor?;
'As nurse !'
'And I should see you sometimes?'
'Frequently twice' a week at least
Hilda- pondered a second or two
and then came forward wfth glisten

'Doctor said she, 'I will try it
And so Clement Harrison's grand
daughter donned the little muslin cap,
print dress and white iruffled apron of
the St. Francesca's corps of nurses,
and set diligently to work, earning
her own living.
A year had passed by, and Dr.
Wallace sent word tjiat nurses was
wanted for a small pox case in the city.
The Sister Superior of the St. Fran
cesca's looked dubiously at her wo
'Who will go?' said she and
Hilda Harrison stepped forward.
.'I will said she. 'I have no fears

So little Hilda packed her bag and
went. . i
The housekeeper of the great Fifth-
avenue palace was wringing her hands
half terrified out of her senses ; the
other servants had taken precipitate
'And Miss Lennox went this morn
ing said she. 'I should think she
might ha vestayetl
'Who is Miss Lennox ?' questioned
'The old gentleman's grand daughter
that he has brought up and petted
like a cossetlamb said Mrs. Hurst.
'Oh, the ingratitude of some folks.
And if Judge Harrison dies '
Hilda looked up quickly from the
bottles of carbolic acid; she was un
packing. 'Is this Judge Harrison's house ?'
said she. j
'Why, of course it Is answered
Mrs. Hurst. 'Did'ntvou kuow?'
'Xo, I did not know Hilda said.
'But of course it makes ho difference
whose house it is. -
'Who are you?' Judge Harrison
asked, hoarsely, as the light foot cross
ed the threshold. !
I am the nurse from St. Francesca's.
They call me Hilda.
'Hilda what?' j
'Never mind my other name said
theypung girl, with a gentle authori
ty that had come to her; from months
of practice at weary sick beds. 'They

Three weeks elapsed. ! The crisis of
the disease was met t-U M

weakened indeed, and sadly disfidir-
ed, was able once morel to sit in his
easy chair, and Hilda, who had watch
ed over him with a vigilance and
tenderness which he fully apprecia
ted, was arranging fresl! flower in a
vase on the table. I
'Hilda said he, slowly, 'where has
my grand daughter Marian been all
this time?' 1 !
'She went away sir, when you were
first taken ill. She was afrajd of the
disease, . '
'And she left tnef 1

'There was gratitude !' he muttered
hoarsely. 'And 'when is she 'coming

jj Hilda laid down her roses and look
ed with pathetic, feeling eyes at him.
'She will not come back at all sir'
6he answered. 'We dared not tell you
before, but but her . flight wasjn
vain. She died of small pox r.last

The old man turned away with a
smothered groan. !
'Hilda said lie, you; will stay with

Nay, do not speak, I know who you
are. I recognized your name when
you first came. You have looked at

'Oh, grandpapa !' And Hilda knelt
weeping besides his chair, scarcely able
to believe that his loving arms were
around her neck, his tears dropped on
her brow. 'Oh, dear, dear grandpapa
I have so longed for some one to love

And good little Dii Hooper 'Was

Judge Harrison's flinty heart more
than a year before
Boots and Shoes.
Boots and shoes are very important
articles of clothing with regard to the
health of individuals subject to sore
throat. Two pairs should alwavs be
in use at the same period, to be worn
on alternate days respectively, inas
much as a single night's exposure to
the air is usually insufficient to free
them from moisture; and the prac
tice of having two pair in wear
at a time will be found productive of
an economy of about thirty-three per
cent., a matter of some moment to
many people in hard times. An ad
ditional pair, exceptionally well-soled
should be Kept for inclement weather.
What are called double-soled shoes or
boots should be worn in winter, and
in wet weather at any season : and
quite light soles are perfectly safe in
iu hot and dry weather. Water
proof shoes, rubbers, furs and mufflers
of all sorts are not to be recnimended
for customary use. Rubbers and light
water-proof cloaks are advisable on
occasions of special exposure, but
should be removed as soon as the spe
cial occasion, has passed. Waterr
proof garments should have slits un
der the arm nits, and nt nfhor
tected points, to favor ventillation.
A Family Feud. There was a
feud between the Howrie and West-
field families, in Warren county, Iowa
and the Howries hired George Whee
ler to kill nine male Westfields at
$100 apiece, the price to be paid af
ter the death of each, and $100 to be
added for the uinth, mating $1,000
for the whole job. Wheeler began
work by shooting at the father of
the Westfields, but only slightly
wounded him in the head. Never
theless, he demanded $100 from the
Howries. Thev told him .that ,
J vtlHW WHV
would not pay for such bad mars-
manship, and he could only. get $10'
so he exposed the whole! plot, and all
concerned in it are uow in jail.
