It might have been the daisies; it
might have been the eyes. Which
ever was the cause, there was the

brimming the down-looking eyes.
The daisies were pink as a cloud;
the eyes were blue as heaven.

oyer-drunk of dew and so exhaled

The daisies, a lovely, lnscioas

pretty hands were they, white and
smooth and slender, and genimed
with a sparkling ring. Tbe blue
eyes had been bending over and
locking into tbe fragrant daisy
depths. Thus it was that there outs
grew the little confusion regarding
the origin of the crystal drops.
Suddenly there came a change, A
rosy mouth was passionately press
ed into the very hearts of the dais
ies, which were crushed against
two hot cheeks, whose burning
crimson paled the rosy petals to
their tips. JuHt a moment the

it came to pnss that a new and more
dramatic leaf of ber life was turned;
and ber name was inscribed there,
on "BrownPink.'' With that this
ohronicle has to do. It has also to
to with Mr. Vandyke, the BachaeU

all to do with the turmur' of this
new leat in the life of little Hester
He had come to ma'ie his summer

"Belles". A close observer would
have been very certaiu to notice a
maiked similarity in theso sketchy
heads. For, while the poe of each
was different, and bore the ldje,
s:rawl of a tjifferen name, it was
something remarkable to find in
each the same ronnded chin, the
sme childish month, the identical
saucy nose, the tender, heayenblue
eyt-g, the aaoie low, broad brow and
careless curliug hair.
Whether it was "Nell'' or "Sue"
or "Jenuie" or "Kate," whether
the, front view or profile, or the
quarter view, or three-quarter, the
same features were shadowed forth,
the heaven-blue eyes were there
updifted. Auother thing the care
ful observer would have been very
cortaiu to notice: tti t whil n one
of ihf&e shadowy ke.rtlies was
marked with the Mine of "Uruwn

features to the very letter.
But there were uo careful obseiv

was a marked absence of that class
of beings. There was no one there
in fact, according to tbe chronicle,
but plain Deacon Alden, and his

Two young ladies, sisters, named
Healy, natives of Maryland but res
idents of Washington, have made a
discovery which has baffled all the
chemists who have tr'ed it and
vrhich will make them very rich if
no one discovers their secret and
robs them of it. Seveial years ago
they tamed their attention to decot
rating china, and in the ceramic
process used gold, which they tcuod
too expensive for the results ob
tained. They Ibeo began t-xperi
meuting to obtain gold td'ct with
out the use of so much gold. It
took time, patience, pluck, perse
verance, and failures without uum
ber, before they bit on tbe bappy
secret which enabled them now to
do what great chemists have tried
in vain for ages to do, aud what
tbey are doing eveiy day to the be
wilderment ot chemists and the ad
miration of every oue who sees
tbeir woik on exhibition at tbe
Woild's Fair, and learns what it is.
They have on exhibition two dis
play?, oue in tbe Woman's building
and one in the Maryland building,
the first ot waich is valued at $1,

sists of a complete dinner et, a
complete tea set for twelve persons,
every dish, plate, cup etc, beiug of
what seems to be solid gold. Iu
addition to this a pyramid -ompos--ed
of numerous articles of the same
material. The secret, consists iu
completely coating chfnawara, with
gold, iuside and outside, by.ch.emi- .

cle which is uutaruishable, and will
stand constant use. So nLce is the .
