threw her hands over her head witt

laugh, "I was thinking what fun ii
is all going to be." And she gazed
placidly and admiringly at the pret.

the hassock. "I am awfnliy afraid

"I think not, but we will have to
be very careful, my role is not so
hard, that of a friend who desired I
rest and quiet, after nursing a sick I
friend ; 1 wish, though, I had taken !
Home other.'' j
"We cannot change or I woold I
offer to do so, for I aw mightily at- j
r aid I wiil nci succeed ; it was such
fun last night when Mr. Larued
a$ked me if I knew any of the Lewis
family, to refer him to you, when I
am engaged to Fred, and say I

would be good for us both not to

as we are to be married in the fall.it
woold be a pity to get tired of each

it will not matter much."
''What in the world are you mar
rying Fred for, Madge ?"
"Keally, Katherine, that is a hard
question lor me to answer; I sup
pose because he asked me, and it
was necessary for me to marry some
"Why necessary 1"
"Don't you intend to marry

"I tbink marriage is a veiy sacred
and solemn thing, and before I
would promise to live with one per
Bon all my life, and take those vows,
I would like to feel that he is ia
some degree necessary to my hap

you are so romautic? I never
thought it of ycu. So you would
marry for love?''
"I would at least have some con
geniality of thought and feeling
between the married and myself."
"Well, I am sure I have tbe
mighty dollar. Fred is rich, and
Fo am I, but not rich enough to
marry a poor man, or even one
moderately well off. As Fred's wife,
I can live quite luxuriously."
"So, Madge, you are marrying

"Well, if you choose to put it
that way, I suppose so, yes ; and,''
he continued laughing, "I do not

need not be ashamed cf tbe head of

"We will not be ready for sup-,

rising, "I hope the other people iu
Ibe bouse are going to be agreea

tertain each other; dou't it seem
funny to put on such a plain little
Katherine laughed ; "I think it is
very nice not to have to dress so
much, and am going to te qaite
fond of my ginghams and mulls."
And well she might be, for her
full length mirror in her richly ap
pointed room in the city from which
she came, hid never reflected a more
bftwitcbing vision than this little
glass did as she smiled 111 it before
going down stairs. Madge Starling
and ber friend Catherine Lee, had
determined to have a little fun this
season, in their own way ; aud
though Mrs. Stariing opposed her
daugbterjand eaid overjthing she
could to pot a stop to it, as her
father, who thought Madge was
perfect and ought to have all she
wanted, said he was willing, pro-
vided Katherine would go also,
Madge bad, as usual, ber own way.
Mre. Lee was a widow, and preferred
staying in ber comfortable home
during tbe hot months, frequently
tiaveling in the fall and winter, but
she was qoite willing that Kather
ine should go to the country and
spend a month or so as she pleased ;
and as for keeping the secret Mrs.
Lee was both able and willing to do
that. Madge was a little afraid her
mother woold let it leak out, but
there was nothing to do but beg
her to be careful, and not let any
one know, and trust her as best
they could. "Of course, Madge,"
she said, "you are going to tell
Fred?" Now Fred was just the
one of ail others Madge was not go-
ing to teli, "No, mother, it would
not be fair to Katherine, we have
given this month to each other, aud
have determined not; to tell any one,
tbere must be no exceptions ; Fred
might take into it his head to coine
and see us, and then all would be
spoiled." It was very hard to make
Mrs. Starling promise not to tell
Fned, but at laat she did, aud the
friends triumphantly went to spend
their month or six weks, or as long
asthey found it pleasant, in tbe
country by themselves, to find all
tbe experiences they could, aud
which was gomg to be so different
from theie town ones,
"Wbo are those ladies that went
np to jour house yesterday, Laru.
"Princesses, iu disguise, 1 told
aunty ; the tall, stately one, with
dark hair and eves, is a Miss Madge
Phillips (the girls had kept their
christian names, aud for surnames
had taken their middle ones) and
the fair haired one with blue eyes, a
Miss Katherine Harding, I only saw
them for a few moments last night,
as I had to go to tbe office to fix
those papers for to-day, but it
seemed to me that their names
ought to be reversed, for the tall
one is as full ot fun as possible, ap
parently, while the little one is
rather dignified and harder, I
should judge, to become acquainted
"I hope they are going to stay
some time V
"I really don't know, one isa
teacber and off lor a little holiday,
the other has been nursing a sick
friend during the winter, and just
wants to rest ; ou must come up
soon and call, auntie told me to ask
yon ; let it be this evening,''
"Thank you, I wili if they are
poor folks like myself; I thought
they were some city swells, in tbat
case I am not visiting you know."
"Well, good-morning, we will
'ook for you then.''
Evening came, and Madge and
Katherine who had passed a quiet
day reading, lolling and eating can
Jay, with which they were well
supplied, dressed for an early tea
ind went down on the piazza to
wait unt'l the bell rang. "I declare
am hungry," said Madge, "not
withstanding I have eaten steadily,
when not asleep, all tbe day; what
1 delicious diuner we had, every
thing was cooked and served so
well. Here comes Mis3 Larned;"
"I am afraid you have bad a very
stupid day," she said, approaching.
"No," replied Katherine, "I tbink
we enjoyed the rest, thoroughly, but
e will not be so lazy every day."
" "One always feels tired aud sleepy j
he first few days in a new place I
hink," said Madge.
"Yes, they are very apt to, and it
oest to give way to it; well, just
make $ ourselves at home and ss
comfortable as possible," said the
dear old lady, as she moved softly
on to see if everything was in order
before the tea bell was rung.
"What a dear old thing she is,''
burst from Madge, "she s ems so
real, not a bit like us."
"Thank you,'' said Ratherine
laughing, " I feel quite real."
There happened to be only two
other .boarders in this quiet country
home this season, two elderly ladies,
one of whom spent most of her time
in her room and the other out of
it. They were sisters, but as Madge
j said, after being there a few days,
j appreciated each other best at a
j distance. After tea Mr. and Miss
j Lamed and the two girls sat on the
! porch and talked.
i "Are you fond of teaching, Miss
j Phillips f'1
"Not specially' replied Madge,
"but then I am naturally lazy, and
(enjoy most of all doing nothing.''
"Jack," said tbe old lady, "here
comes Will Smith.''
"Yes, be told me this morning he
wonld come up if possible, to call on
the ladies this evening."
"He is one of my favorites, and a
"That is high praise. Miss Lam
ed,'' said Katherine.
By this time the young man had
reached tbe steps and greeting
Miss Larued in a courteous and
warm hearted way, turned as she
introduced him to "Miss Philips
and Miss Hrrding, who bad come
merely as boarders, but whom she
hoped would leave as friends."
"I do not think there is any doubt
about that,'' said Madge, in ber
pretty way, Madge was always a
surprise, be looked so tall and
stately that persons were prepared
to find her dignified and distant,
while on the contrary she was ready
to meet you two-tbirda of the waj
and with the slightest eucourage
ment to come most of the other
third that was it she liked you ;
I ut if she did not she so completely
ignored you, that as far as she was
roncerued you did not exist. Kath
enne was tbe dignified one, but she
was really warmer hearted than
Madge, and though more reserved
in ber manner much more loving.
Mr. Smith seated himself near Miss
Larued, and at first most of his
conversation was addressed to her,
but before very long they were all
talking and laughing together as if
they were already friends. Pies
eutly Miss Larned got u, saying
she must go and look after "Miss
Hetty," who was not very well this
''Where is Miss Sarah V asked
"She usually goes out ia the
evening for a little walk."
"Aod in the morniug and after
noon too, said Mr. Smith laughing,
"I know of no one I meet more
constantly ; she must be training for
a walking match,"
"See, Katherine;" said Madge
l iogbing, "what is to be said of us
when we begin to scour this lovely
"Let us go with you, Miss Phil
lips, and then we cannot talk," said
"Very well, we are thinking of
going to tbe top ot tbat hill yonder
to see the sun rise tomorrow morn
"Certainly, Miss Phillips, we will
tbink of joining you."
Madge burst out laughing, "I will
wait for you to propose the next ex
"I propose, then, tbat we have an
early tea to-morrow and go up that
same hill, which is not quite so near
3s you th:nk for, and see the sun
set ; tbere is a magniiiceut view and
1 think you will enioy it."
"But will it not put your aant
out to have an early tea?"
Katherine almost started, it was
isomethiug almost entirely new to
hear Madge speaking of giving any
any one else trouble.
"No, auntie will not mind, I
thiuk all she really cares for is to
giye people pleasure.''
The moon rose while they were
sitting there aod flooded tbe whole
place with her soft beautiful light,
and the conversation grew quieter,
and tbe sentiment ciep'c in, as un
der such circumstances it will.
Strangely enough Madge was the
one to stait it.
"I do wonder what we are al
made for," she suddenly said.
"To love one another,we are told,"
Mr. Smith quickly replied.
"I am afraid a great many of u
do not fulfil our mission ia life
"We ali love some one, though
not every one," said Katherine.
; 'No one is so aenrsed by fate,' "
quoted Mr. Larned. -"Is that your
belief, too, Miss Harding ?"
"Yer, I do not see why we should
suppose any one else is so much
worse off than ourselves; but some
times the wrong people love each
"No, it is not tbat," said Miss
Larned, who bad just come out aod
paused a moment on her way to the
kitchen. "It is that they love each
other the wrong way."
"Auntie is right," said Mr. Larn
ed, as she passed on. "As she al
ways is," bis friend added. They
talked for a long time and then
Katherine rising said : "Come,
Madge, it is surely time tor us to
"Yes." said Madge, slowly rising.
' I soppose it is, but it is so lovely
here one hates to say good-night to
Days parsed on, they had gone to
see tbe sunset from tbe top of the
hill, and had taken many other ex
peditions ; and the quartette were
fast becoming friend", real friends,
indeed I must say tbe quintette, lor
dear Miss Larued xvas beloved cf
all. "Aunty," as Madge one day
called ber, and then blushed scarlet
as she saw tbe gleam in Jack Larm
ed's eyes aud blushed (feeper too,
as that old lady tenderly kissing
her said, "I wish you would call me
that, dear, it souuds very sweet and
natural from you."
Madge and Jack were generally
together, and Katherine and Tom
Smith. Katherine was trouble that
she was deceiving them all, he
knew bow he felt about rich girls
aud poor men ; indeed she kuew
how he felt about most things, and
it grieved her tbat she was de eiv
ing bim. Madge also was troubled,
but would ouly laugh when Kather
ine said she felt so mean and was
sure she could not keep it up much
"Well, it is almost time for us to
go," said Madge, one morning; "we
have been here five weeks, and
mamma is beginning to be very up
gent in her letters for my return ;
she said I promised to go to the
Springs for a few weeks anyhow,
and that Fred is very attentive to
some Miss Boling or Miss some one
else ; I never tbink of him but as a
money bag ; it never occurs to me
that he is a man."
Katherine stood at the window
musing "Madge,'' she said, sudi
denly turning, "I am sick and tired
of this, we cau only release each
other from tbe vow we made not to
betray who we are aud I fully and
heartily release you, and want you
to tbe same tbicg for me."
"Oh, Katheriue, no, I have not
the courage. They will despise us."
"1 have not the courage to live
this way any longer," said Kather
ine. "aud if you refuse, will leave
to morrow ; I cannot staud it a day
longer." And her face crimsoned
as Bh? thought of Mr. Smith saying
to her tbat morning how be 'despis
ed deceit,' and afterwards 'how
happy he nad been this summer,'
and asking her if be might contiuue
the acquaintance which had ripened
into friendship ; might he wriie to
ber when she went home and might
he go to see her some day f She
was thanktol that they had been in
terrupted then, fcr she simply could
not have borne it much longer.
Suddenly Madge threw herself on
the bed and burst into tears.
"Why, Madge, darling, what is
the matier ! You must not give way
like this, just determine to be brave
land let us confess, I think they
will forgive us ; and oh, Madge, I
cannot bear it."
'Very well sobbed Madge, 'how
shall we do it ?'
That evening tbey were to row
over to the little island, take books
aud work and spend t-everal hours.
They decided that would be a good
time, and tbey would tell tbem be

IJUAEXXTIXE AND DISINFECTION-
We are seriously threatened dur
ing the coming summer with an in
vasion of the most dreaded of all
the contagious aud infectious dis-
in fighting that class of diseases,
which cleaniiness of the premises is
ot tbe highest importance and
should never be overlooked a duty,
by the way, that you should attend
to at once it you have not already
done so, now that warm weather
has set iu, and tepeVedly and re
gulrly hereafter nothing is at all
omparable in results to the prompt
and complete separation of the sick
from the well, and the thorough dit
inftctiou of everything used by the
patient. A complete application of
these pjinciples would nip in the
bud every epidemic ; indeed there
could be epidemics. Tbe machiuery
for carrying them out has been pro
vided iu the "Act Relating to tLe
Board of health" passed by the las!
Legislature, but it is well known
fact tbat no law cau be successfully
administered unless it is supported
by public opiuion, I therefor de
sire very brietly, to call attention
to certain paris of which pait'CU
lariy require the co-operation of the
people for whose benefit it was pus
sel, aud to show why it is to their
interest to give it their cordial sup
port. Most people know tbe - va'ue to
health of cleanliness of person, pre
mises, food and drink, but not so
many are familiar with the great
importance ot a strict quarantine or
isolatioujof th03e sick of infectious
diseases, and more especially the
uecessity for the diMnfectiou ot the
pntient and bis affect after his re
covery. As nothing is so convinc
ing as facts, I will give some of the
results obtained In the State of
Micbagau, where sanitary regula
tions are carried oui, certainly as
well as, it not better than, auy where
el-e in country. The number ol
deaths from scarlet fever in that
State before the B ard of Health uu.

at the Columbian Exposition "indi
cates the lives saved : from scarlet
fever, 7,2G5 Iroui smailpox, 1,921,
and floor typhoid fever, 1,G71."
The administration of health laws
even in Michigan is still very, very
tar from perfect, and yet see tbe
great saving of life brought about
by their partial application. What
has been done there can be done
here and ought to be done, every
one must admit,
Tbe following are tbe extracts
from the laws referred to :
Sec. 9. Inlaud quarantine shal'
be under the control of the county
superintendent of health, who shall
see that disease especially daoger

qoarautine and disinfection, which
shall be furnished him by tbe sec
retary of the state board of health.
The expense of the quarantine and
of tbe disinfection shall be borne
the householder in whose family the
case occurs, if able, otherwise by
the city, town or country of which
he is a resident; Any person negs
lecting or refusing to comply with
or in any way violating the rules
promulgating in the manner above
fet forth on the subjects of quaran

the discretion of tbe court, not less
tban five nor more than fitty dollars,!
or less tban ten nor more than thir

any city or incorporated town bay

health officer who is a member of.
tbe county board ot health, the da
ties assigned in this section of tbe
county superintendent of health
shall be performed by the said med

his city or town, and he shall be
subject to the sam penalties for
the dereliction of duty at tho bands
of tbe board of aldermen or town
commissioners as ar directed to be

that a person witl in his family is

merated in section nine, be shall
immediately give notice thereof to
the health officer or mayor, if he
resides in a city or incorporated
town, otherwise to the county su
perintendent of health, and upon
the death or recovery or removal of
such person, the rooms occupied
and the articles used by him shall
be disinfected by such householder
in the manner indicated in section
niue. Any person neglecting or re-
fusing to comply with any of tbe
above provisions shall be deemed
guilty of misdemeanor, and upon
conviction shall be fined not less
than one dollar nor more than, fifty
Sec. 11, When a physicirn knows

Tbe purpose of these enactments
13 to assist every householder in
preventing the spread of these dis
eases to other members of his own
family, and to also prevent bis
permitting their transmission to his
neighbors through ignorauce, indif
fereoce or obstinacy- If I have a
case of scarlet fever, we wili say, in
my family and fail for auy reason,
to let it be generally known, and a
child of my neighbor, ignorant of
dauger, comes into my house and
contracts the disease ; or, it from
carelessness or contrariness, or from
an unwillingness to take a little tro
bio, or in order to save a small ex
pense I s boo Id neglect to disinfect
the clothing, toys, etc., of my little
one, and bis playmates should take
the disease from tbem (aa he is most
likely to do) and die? In what
light would the parents of that

a right to regard me who knew
the danger, who knew the law and
consequently my duty failed to do

My reader, this is a very grave
matter a matter in which is invol
ved no less an issue than life and
death. It is a thorongbly estab

infection will check, if altogether
prevent, the spread of infectious
diseases. You are now iu posses

hopes and beleivea you will do it.
