ENDANGERING HER CHANCE. Tho'marriage service had proceeded without a hitch so: far, but the re sponses proVed a stumbling block. Nei ther the bridegroom nor his partner had received much in the education line; so, when the parson, in his most dignified tone, asked the usual ques tion, "Wilt thou have this woman to be thy wedded wife?" Jack im mediately answiered: "I 'ull." "You must say 'I will,' " corrected the cleric, and asked the question over again. "I. 'ull," responded Jack, more firmly than ever. The irate clergyman threatened to stop the service altogether if the re sponse was pot properly given. This was too much for Sally, who broke in quite savagely: "Gar along wid ye, monj thee 'ull 'ave our Jack sayjn' he won't in a minute or two wid yer worryin'." The service was resumed.

People ran-about the streets un able to walk at a moderate pace, and the merest acquaintances, who usually passed with a bow, thought it neces sary, to call out to each other, "Hor ribly -.wind 1" Primroses and violets, which .had come out with youthful rashness, wished themselves back again in the warm bosom of mother earth, and gir'i whom vanity, induced to discard the' ' winter jackets nearly coughed thems Ives into their graves. Miss Brabazon sat shivering by the fire—a position from which she rarely stirred. She had acquired several new wrinkles during the winter, and she never sm/led except at some folly or misfortune of liei' friends. She was as sour as a young crab-apple, and her temper was as genial as the blustering east wind. She never spoke but to grumble, and when she read family-prayers, she chose the m...

A CHINESE INCUBATOR. HOW HENS' AND DUUKS' EGGS AEE HATCHED UNDER BICE. In an American consular "report pub lished is described an ingenious, method by which Chinese in the district adja-. cent to Am07 hatch both hen's and ducks' eggs.

THE MASTER PASSION. CHAPTER XV. \VHEItE THE BlllD HAD FLOWN. "I don't acknowledge that you have any right either to my love or my duty," said Ida DuvaJ, throwing back her head, whilst her eyes Mashed Haugh tily. Her husband was lounging on . a divan, with the mouthpiece of a long "chioouque" between his lips. His feet were thrust into a pair of Orien tal slippers, embroidered in seed-pearls, the gift of one of iiis feminine ad mirers, and the crimson and goid smoking-jacket and cap which complet ed liis costume, had once hung in a crowded stall of a Turkish bazaar. The' room was filled with "bric-a brac," and quaint artistic trifles, such as the soul of a "dilettante" loves. Gorgeous shawls and rugs were strewn about the studio, draped on the wall, i half-concealing the lovely face, of a grisette, tossed on • to a divan, or thrown across an empty easel. There were pictures on every side, all depicting human life at a. time when old age is but a distant shadow in the far off future, ...
