The house in which Mr William Johnson carried on the business of money lender and financial a^ent was in no w;iy different from those snrronnd- in.^ it. save that tho down stairs front window bore the legend, \Loan Ofliee, \J in largo black letters on a white ground A quiet, orderly, middle asjed man was Mr Johnson, and people who met him in the street and did not know him would have taken him for any­ thing rather than a man who put onj his money t o nsnry Certainly there wan nothing of thp Rhylock at out him as he sat one sprint; morning in his dingy ofliee going over a much thumbed account hook He was a tall, spare, loosely bnilt man. with a pale face and a thin, straggling crop of beard and whisker that always looked as if it had grown in patches. Usually when ho was not talking to his clients he carried a quill pen in his month There was something in this habit which gavo him the appearance of an abstracted poodle carrying a stick Mr. Johnson was deeply engrossed in the consideration of a certain entry in his account book when the door of the loan office opened very suddenly and Bet the bell ringing with sharp disso­ nance. Ho heard a light step in tho lit­ tle lobby which was partitioned off from the rest of tho room. For a mo­ ment he did not answer the summons of the bell. It was never wise to bo in too much haflto to welcome callers. Bnt presently he rose and opened the door, the quill pen still retaining its horizon­ tal position in his mcuth He lifted his eyes carelessly from the little swing counter to the person who stood behind it. He 'was-not easily surprised, for he had seen many strange things in his time, but what he now saw surpi'ised him into a vague, uncomfortable si­ lence. Behind the little counter Rtood a young lady—nay, a girl of some 18 or 19 years, fashionably dressed, evidently of, good position and palpable refine­ ment. Her pretty, fresh face, revealed •itself to Mr Johnson's astonished eyes from beneath the ravishments of a much befiow ered 'picture hat and seemed Btrangely out of keeping with the dingy colqr of his little lobby \Oh—er—you are Mr William John­ son ?\ sho said \Yes answered Mr Johnson \I—I want to borrow sonic money,'\ she said, looking out of half averted eyes at the money lender Mr. Johnson's first i'\ 0 '3e was to stretch out his hand iJr one of the application forms which stood ready in ii small box on the Counter, bnt upon reflection he lifted the swinging shelf and asked this new client to stop inside. When she had passed into the office, he closed the door and joined her. and from sheer force of habit ho restored the quill pen to his mouth. The girl saw the resemblance to the abstracted poodle, and a smile rippled over her face. Mr Johnson did not observe it. He indicated a chair nt the side of his desk, and when the girl had taken it resumed his own seat and looked at her \What amount did you wish to bor­ row, ma'am?\ said Mr. Johnson. \Wh—ah—well. £20 \ \Now\— said Mr Johnson \I sup­ pose you could furnish good security?'\ \I thought that you—it says in j'our advertisement, you know, that you lend money on borrower's note of hajrii alone—I think that's how it 's put, isn't it—and no inquiries and no sure­ ties—isn't that it?\ \To approved borrowers—yes,\ an­ swered Mr. Johnson. \Oh said the girl. \Oh then you\— \ \We don't lend money without se­ curity,\ said Mr. Johnson \Of ctmrsa if we know the party nnd know that it's all right and safe, why, of course, in that case\— \J see,\ said the girl. \Yes—of course you don't know anything about me. How silly of me I I thought one had just to come and get the money and sign a papor or something.\ The girl looked up from her parasol, with which she had been tracing imag­ inary patterns on the floor. \Perhaps I'd better tell you all about it,\ she said. \Of course you won't tell anybody, will you?\ \Never divulge professional secrets,\ said Mr. Johnson. \Well. I want to borrow £20 to buy a bicycle. There!\ said the girl, w.ith a decisive tap of tho parasol npon the floor \You see, I've spent every ; penny of my quarter's allowance, and there's still a month before I've any | more dne^-and I simply must have that j bicycle, and I looked over all the ad- I vertisements about money and I saw I yours, and so I came to yon.\ i \Might I inquire what name, \ ma'am?\ said Mr. Johnson. \Oh I'm Miss Lattimerl Of course- yon know my father, Mr Robert Lat- timei?\ I ^ \Certainly replied Mr Johnson. : ' more astonished than ever \I've no doubt that he'd buy you a bicycle now.' I | \No he won't. He thinks two hnn- ' dred a year quite, enough for a girl to spend. No, I Bhall huve to buy my own , bicycle.\ ] Mr. Johnson took the quill pen out of his mouth and scratched his head with • i.the feathered end of it. : \I'm afraid your father wouldn't ap-' prove, ma'am\— he began. \Oh but he's not to know, you know. This is a little deal just between you and me. Aiter all it's not getting ' things on credit, is it? Because the i money will really be mine when you've' lent it to me. won't it?\ \Ye-es answered Mr. Johnson. \Ye-es.\ \That's all right, then I\ said Miss Lattimer triumphantly. \Well have I got to sign any papers or anything, Mr. Johnson?\ \It is usual to make inquiries before completing.\ \Oh but I've nofimefor inquiries!\ exclaimed Miss LattiineT. \I've got to meet a friend at the cycle agent s in an hour Ohl Look here I I'll leave you my card, Mr. Johnson, in case you want my address.\ Mr Johnson looked at the bit of pasteboard and then at Miss Lattimer. \Something^iinpellt'd him to rise and un­ lock a safe-which stood in a corner of the office. He fumbled abont. and final­ ly produced four X'.\) notes, new from the Bank of England. \Well ma'am.\ said Mr Johnson, \it isn't my usual way of doing busi­ ness, but\—nnd there he paused, utter­ ly unable trt explain jnaftcrs to himself. \When did \you say you could pay it back, ma'am?\ \Oh on tho 1st of July,\ replied Miss Lattimer 1 \That's scarcely a mouth, is it?\ '^rhen I may expert to see you on tho 1st of Jul}', ma'am?\ said Mr Johnson, laying down th.> notes. \Certainly yon may I\ rxclaftncd Miss Lattimer delightedly \Thanks awfully I\ She stulted the notes into a .gnld mounted purse and smiled at Mr. Johnson with all tho inwocent pleasure of a child who has got what it wants. \But we haven't arranged anything— haven't I to sign a paper or anything?\ \I think,\ said Mr Johnson slowly, \that we'll leave that over until >on pay the money, ma'am. I'll only charge you reasonable interest for such a short loan Of conrse. ma'am, you'll not mention this little transaction to anybody,\ he added, anxiously \Wo always keep these matters quiet—very quiet.\ ' \Oh. to be sure I\ laughed the girl. \Well thanks, Mr. Johnson, and good- by. You'll see me on tho 1st of July dead certain, you know.\ On the 1st of July Mr Johnson sat in his office in a state of nervous ex­ pectancy, but the nervousness had nothing to do with the money which was due from Miss Lattimer All the morning he waited and all the after­ noon, and still she cafne not And then as evening drew near the postman brought a registered lettei, and Mr Johnson opened it and drew out £21) in notes and £1 in gold and u note that smelled of violets. After a long time Mr. Johnson rose from his desk and locked up the notes in his safo. Then ho took the sovereign in his hand and wont out into the street. He presently came to the little shop of a working jeweler and entered it timidly When he came out again, the sovereign hung on his simple watch chain, and his fingers felt for it and ca­ ressed it as if it -had been a live thing And that was the end.—Hartford Cou- rant Dlcl verm' CIinrno<era.

One thinks of those enchanted char­ acters ' down to Miss Walckes and Quilp'a boy with an inexpressible affec­ tion Our hearts are simply peopled with those creations which gathered round Dickens when he wrote like amiable .spirits summoned by one sweep of a magician's wand.

The tragic story of the benntifnl and talented Scottish woman, Helen Irving, is not. perhaps, well known, although it has been celebrated in song Sho had been for some time courted by two gen­ tlemen whose names were Bell and Fleeming. ' Bell told the girl that if he ever found her in Fleeming's company ho would kill him She. however, had a strong regard for Fleeming, and one day. while walking along the romantic banks of the Kirtle. she observed his rival on the other side of the river among the bushes. Conscious of the danger her lover was in. she passed between him and his enemy, who. firing, shot her dead Fleeming crossed the river and killed the coward. A heap of stones was raiseVl on the place where the brave woman fell, and she was buried in the near churchyard. Fleeming, overwhelmed with love and grief, went abroad, but soon returned and. stretching himself on her grave, expired. He was buried by her side. 1)1 AOKAMS OF FITKNITURE. tents may be concealed The curtains j should be on a rod, so they can be easily , drawn or closed at will This woodwork should be painted or stained and var­ nished to match other finished wood in the room, and when completed its use will prove its value. For the side of a room a utility couch will be found a very valuable and com fortable piece of furniture, and as it may easily be constructed from pine boards a plan is shown in Fig 2 A glance at this drawing will show that the body part of the conch is in the shape of a long box. G feet in length 30 inches wide and lfi inches deep. At, one end a bead rest is arranged sc that it can be raised or lowered This! will he the width of the couch and not more than 18 inches long Fig. 3 shows the manner in which this rest is built. It is secured to the top of the box by means of two large hinges, and at tht middle of it to tho underside a stand­ ard is attached by a stout hinge. In the standard several boles are made at regular distances apart, and when pro­ vided with a wooden pin the head rest can be raised or lowered and held se j curely in any position The top of the couch not covered by the head rest is made to raise, as shown, and affords an opening to the interior of the conch Here will be found an ex­ cellent place for trousers, long coats and odd piecps of clothing The inside of the sides and one end may bo arrang­ ed with denim or canvas pockets, as shown, where nnmbprs of pairs of shoes, slippers and rubbers can find a gcod resting place. As shown in the drawing, the under­ side of the conch top is provided with batt: j ns to strengthen it and keep the boards together, but the head rest ia battened at tho ends of tho boards, as they would prevent the rest lying flat on top of the couch if they were under­ side The top to this couch should be made so that it will fit flush with the top of sides and ends. A rail is nailed fast all around the inside of the T jox an inch down from the top, so that when tho cover is closed it will fit down in­ side of the box This couch can be upholstered on the seat with hair from an old mattress and covered with some strong and desirable material, or a single bed mattress may be covered with material and laid on the top of the box Around the sides and ends a valance of cretonne may be gathered and tacked at the upper edge, and to finish it off nicely a gimp may be held in place with large hearded uphol­ stery tacks Several other pieces of furniture can be made that will follow these, and, with these to begin with, others will suggest themselves as needed.

Gallant. \A man is as old as he feels,\ said the gentleman of the old school, \and n woman as old as she says she is.\—In­ dianapolis Journal. Bnrry Hear* How a Convention of Bpnsteru Came to Grler. \I tbinfc lie weasel is a mean, wick­ ed, marcher,\ said Harry as he came rushing into his mother's room, his face flushed and his little fists clinched to­ gether. \My white rabbit lies all in a little dead heap in his house, and Mike, the gardener, says the weasel has killed him. He saw it prowling around the barn last night, and why he didn't set a trap and catch it I don't see.\ Mamma put aside her sewing and went to comfort Harry, who began to cry bitterly for the loss of his pet x-opr nunnyl\ said mamma. Bhould not have been left ou 't when Mi WeaselrWas' around- But we will buy • another bunny, two bunnies—a white due and a black one—and they shall have a nice little house in the wood shed, where no weasel can find them. \ Harry brightened up at once at the • prospect of having two bunnies, while mamma said \Now. let us talk a lit­ tle about the weasel It is not so much to be blamed, after all. for killing bunny, for it was born with the in 8tinct to catch rabbits and squirrels, rats, mice and many other small ani­ mals, as well as chickens and birds of all kinds. Weasels are very sly little beasts, although if captured when very young they can be tamed'and taught to eat out of their master's hand. If you will listen and not cry any more, I will tell yon what I saw and heard ono sum­ mer afternoon over by the pond in the meadow You know, it is a very small pond, and that afternoon the water was so still that it looked like a glass eye in the midst of the great green meadow I sat down on the bank to rest and to watch the reflections of \the hushes and tall water grasses which overhung the pond Suddenly the surface of the wa­ iter ^s disturbed by a hundred circling ripples, in the cpnter of which appeared a small dark spot. As I watched, these dark spots became visible all over the pond. The sun was setting and the beautiful summer twilight coming on, and it was so still it seemed as if na­ ture and all her pretty minstrels were faist asleep \All at once I heard a hoarse voice, which seemed at my very feet. 'Chn- lunk, chn-lunk, chn-lunk,' it said. It must have been the chorister calling his f;rog chorus together for their even­ ing song, for in a moment a multitude of voices were answering from the long grasses, the bushes, the water—indeed, the whole neighborhood, a moment be­ fore so quiet, was alive with little frog people. They- evident!}' had some cause of complaint against a very wicked per-- son, as my little Harry has just now, for I distinctly heard one say. 'Stole a rabbit, stole a rabbit,\ while another answered, 'I saw him do it. I saw him do it.' Then the whole chorus burst out. 'We'll pull him in, we'll pull him in.\ 'Plump, plump, plump,' added one voice more revengeful than all the rest I sat very still, waiting to seo what was to be pulled plump into the water. I did not have long to wait, but I fancy things took a tnrn contrary to the one desired by the frog people. There was a sudden rustling in the bushes, a sharp, quick sound like the springing of a cat. The chorus was still in an instant, but the entire shore of the little pond was j covered with rushing, springing, jump- frogs. Pellmell they tumbled over ' each other in headlong race for the wa-' ter to escape their cruel enemy, which now appeared and showed himself to be a slender little weasel. He darted here and there among the helpless frogs, : which made no attempts to 'pull him in,\ but bent their whole efforts toward self preservation At length, seizing a fat frog in his mouth, the weasel turned and disappeared noiselessly among the bushes. Peace reigned once more, but the little frog people had all jumped into the water, and not a voice was | hpard protesting or uttering further threats.\ j \And did the weasel get moro than one poor littlo frog, mamma?\ asked Harry \No.be carried off only one frog, \ replied mamma, \but he killed several more, which he left lying dead in the grass. I dug a hole in the mud with a j sharp stick and buried them, so that their companions should not find them when they ventured on shoro again.\ \Well said Harry, after thinking a few moments, \now I guess I'll go and bury my poor dead rabbit.\ A SPEAKING COW.

So hard is food frozen in Siberia dur­ ing the winter that carcasses of sheep can only be divided by ax and saw Fish caught throngh holes in- ,the ice freeze while they jump. Eggs aro as hard as flints.' I have carried them in a sack over my horse's back. The rivers of Siberia abound with ex­ cellent fish, among these a beantiful kind of ^grayling and the incomparable sterlet, quite the most 'delicious fish I know. While descending the Yenisei we caught it gigantic sturgeon, yield­ ing many poods of coarse black caviare, a dainty highly esteemed. Sturgeon cutlets, with wild chervil for flavoring, are delicious. Quails and dabebicks are a favorite broil for second breakfast. The bread I found dark, hard and sour, but sustaining. A great deal of vodki is drunk, but it is both perilous and nauseous on account of the fusel oil it contains. Kwass in summer time is re­ freshingly acid, and, drunk from a small oaken bowl, it is better than cicler. Tea is taken at every meal, bnt is very weak. Brick tea is detestable. The stamped bricks are used as money till they areNvorn and dirty. They are then made into a kind of broth. All sorts of abominations are flung into it. The Ehirgis have an insatiable appetite for brew \thick and slab.\ impossible to western palates. \\What a the -matter with old AsungA, Tom?\ adked Crooked Necked Jim. \He seems terrible down on you; says he's go­ ing to fine all your family for planting taro on Sunday. l ' Asuuga was tho native magistrate, who was supposed to exercise police jurisdiction over the whole of the little isle. \Asunga be Mowed!\ replied Blind Tom. \It's all about that cow joko I play­ ed on him a couple of years ago. He's been trying to get at mo ever since.\ \Oh tho cow!\ replied Jim, chuckling, and with that the two burst into roars of laughter. Tom had gone blind through drinking too much green kava, while Jim, who had been a sailor in his youth, had given his neck a permanent twist by incautiously falling down a hatchway. .Henco his nick­ name. \You want to know about tho cow?\ said Tom in responso to my urgent ap­ peal, for enlightenment. \Well it's an old story hereabouts, but seoing that you're a stranger I don't mind telling you about it. \It was in this way: About a couple of years ago old Asunga, ho's the magistrate for the island, you know, got very nasty toward me because ono of \my young men had run away with a girl from his family. It wasn't my fault, becauso I had nothing to do with the young people's love affairs, but still Asunga blamed inc. He waited for his chance, and one day because soiue of my pigs got into tho missionary's taro patch made me pay a heavy fine. I was not to blame, because the stone fence around tne missionary's land was out of repair, but still I had to pay the fine or else lose all the trade of the village. \It was my turn next. I waited for my chance. The missionary had a cow, and ono day that cow took a stroll round to my back veranda and made a good, sub­ stantial meal off a bunch of bananas and h basket of yams which had just been giv­ en me. '' I found Asunga sitting in his house, holding the usual fttno. ' Asunga,' I said, 'some one has ontered my grounds and stole a bunch of bananas and a basket of yams from my back veranda.' \ 'Well, who is the offender?' asked Asunga. \ 'The thief,' I replied, 'was Moo, the missonary's cow. Sho camo into my gar den and did $10 worth of damago besides eating the bananas and yams.' \Tala the missionary, was a great friend of Asunga's, and I knew that, he would never have granted a warrant against his friend. So I put it on the cow. \ 'Moo may be guilty,' he said, 'but how can a cow bo arrested. Sho^cannot speak or give evidence on her behulf?' \I had my answer ready for him. 'Is it not recorded in tho Scripture,' I said, 'that Iioiilam's ass spoke, and are we to disbelieve the Biblo?' 'So at last Asuuga reluctantly gave orders for tho arrest of Moo on a charge of petty larceny, and the hearing of tho case was llxcd for the next morning. \That night Moo was takon in charge by the ono native policeman, and in de­ fault of a lockup for quadrupeds was moored to ono of the side posts of Asun­ ga's house. Sho revenged herself and pro­ vided occupation for the midnight hours by eating half the thatch off Asunga's roof, a circuinstanco which did not im prove his temper when tho court opened next morning. \The trial was held in Asunga's house, which did duty as a courtroom when occa­ sion required. Tho great round, beehive shaped structure was crowded with curious natives, and amid them Tula, who, in do- linnce of all the laws of justice, was doing his best to convince tho natives that the miracle of Balaam's ass was effected only by direct divine interposition, and that a reputiton of it could not be expectol in these hitter days. \And what wns her evidehce?\ I asktul. \Ah that's where Jim comes in! Yo.u go on, Jim, and finish the story.\ \Oh it wns all easy enongh!\ said Jim, twisting his head round so that he looked right over his left shoulder. ''You sec, I was a bit of a ventriloquist in my youth, and I've not forgotten it all, either, like must of tho other things I learned at school. And then I think the shape of my neck gives me an advantage. \Well tho enw was brought up to the side of the house, and Asunga makes a long speech to her, *though, being busy with tho thatch over hor head, sho doesn't take notico vcry-muoh. I took care to seat myself on the right hand side of the prisoner, so that the twist of my neek would givo mo an advantage^ in throwing my voico in her direction. \At last after talking for about half an hour Asunga wound up; 'Moo, you are charged with knowingly eating a bunch of bananas and a basket of yams belong- fhg to Blind Tom. What is your answer? Are you guilty or not guilty?' \Just then it dawned upon Moo that something peculiar was going on, and she lowered her head and gavo a plaintive bel­ low. It was the very opportunity I want­ ed, so, thr'- in« my voice well over in her direction, I adtlew T did eat tho bananas and yams, O All Asunga, V't truly it was becauso Tula, my master, hau- ^-'ven mo no grass that day, and I knew not. how to prodtico milk for the morrow.' \You never saw any one so astonished as Tala. Ho felt his reputation for doc trinal knowledge tottering, and he hasten­ ed to come In out of tho wet. \ 'A miracle, a miracle!' ho exclaimed. 'Tho Lord is with us! Moo speaks!' \Asunga though, somewhat to Tala's disgust, hastened to take the same view ot the matter. He was not going«to let Tala have all the famo of this wonderful mira­ cle. 'It is certain,' ho said, 'that Moo has confessed her guilt, but also sho has shown that thou, Tala, art to blame.' \Tala protested in vain against any complicity in Moo's sins. <l 'The cow,' said Asunga, delivering his judgment, 'has confessed, and thou hast admitted that it is indeed a mi rale. It is not for us to strivo against the word of tho Lord. Moo is fined 20 baskets of taro, and thou, her master, having kept her hungry, must pay tho line fov her.' \ —J. F. Rose-Soley in Wave. Ireland Called Many Names. Few countries have suffered so many changes of name as Ireland. In the time of Ptolemy the island was known as Scotia. Diodorna Siculus calls the island Irs, or IrisK in the \De Mnndo.\ cred­ ited by some scholars to Aristotle, it is called Irenne: in the \Ar'gonautica of Orpheus\ it appears as Irinns: Strabo calls it Irene: Ca?sar. Tacitus and Pliny mention it as Hiberniu; Mela called it Juverna. The native names in Celtic are Ir, Eri. or Erin Plutarch mentions it under the name of Ogygia. The name Ireland is no doubt derived from the native Ir or Eri. but. when it came Into general use is a question concerning which scholars are much at variance Judicial I.e The police justice, who had the repu­ tation of being a strictly upright and honest officer of the law and had little business in consequence, looked lugu­ briously at the frayed edges o f the judi­ cial coat \I am sorry,\ he aaiS. \but I shall have fo bind you over.\—Chicago Trib­ une.
