'Five and four are nine and eight Are eiuh teen," counted Kitty, abstract­ edly, as she set the hot pies on th8 broad pan thy shelf. A low, sarcastic laugh came from the depths of the great arm-chair, where Ross Chamberlain was lounging with a newspaper in his hand. "Won't you send me a copy of your new arithmetic when you publish it, Kitty?" he asked, in a bantering tone. "That will do to go with the spectro­ scopic views you told aboutlast even­ ing." "Well, I wasn't the one who spoke of Dr. Holmes as the author of the 4Biglow Papers,' anyway," retorted Kitty, taunted beyond endurance. "Ross Chamberlain, I for one shall be heartily glad when your vacation is over." Ross threw down his paper, straight­ ened himself up, and bent a pair of keen, black eyes searching! upon her. "You don't mean that, Kitty?" "But. I do," answered the girl pas­ sionately. "I have never known so unhappy a time as these last ...

I had run over to Paris, had spent a couple of weeks in th$t bright city and was on my \*»ay homo again. I took a night tram froufi Dover to London, and in the compartment which I occupied there whs but one other passenger—a sharp, intelligent-looking man, with a vury grave face.

Falls Transcript. FUIiLEE, Publisher. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. Rutherford B. Hayes is the only hv Ing ex-President of the United States. The Iom to lake craft on Lake Michigan daring the recent gale is esti­ mated at $500,000, and oyer a dozen lives are known to have been lost. It was one of the severest storms known on this lake for years. It appears from the report of Gen. Sheridan that the army of the United States is now composed of 2,102 offi­ cers and 23,946 men. Is there not room for the suggestion that the maintenance of one officer for les9 than every twelve privates is both extrava­ gant and ridiculous? The total debt of the various prov­ inces forming the Dominion,and which was assumed by that Goverment when it was forned in 1867, was $98,000, 000. It is now over $250,000,000. With a population of -1,324,810, this amounts to over $55 a head. The debt of the United States is $25 per head of the population. The phosphate beds under the navi­ gable streams near Charleston, S...

D«a 6.— The president's message 1Bgenerally com­ mended for Its dignity, bat It cannot be said that it fully meets the expectations of his friends. The passage which relates to the civil service is regarded by those who are tbe most Interested in the subject as too vague and general, and as notable chiefly for Its omissions. The free traders are not satisfied that the message does not contain specific recommendation, and they do not consider that the very specific recommenda­ tion of the secretary of the treasary as to free wool and free raw material compensate for the omissions of the president Columns could be filled with statements of the pretended views of congressmen on the message, but the expression of opinion for the most part would be perfunctory. The recommendations of the secretary of the treasury relative to wool and clothing are acceptable to the free tr...

IN WIG AND GOWN. Lady Hayward had been to London to see her lawyers about some urgent business, and, leaving Lord Hayward to entertain the guests daring her short Absence, had gone alone, or rather with her maid. Shq had stayed the night in town in order to bring with her a dress for a ball which was to be given at the castle, the following evening. At last the carriage dashed up to the door, driven very fast, for the coach­ man knew it was very late. The first person who emerged from the carriage was an exceedingly quiet-looking, well dressed youug woman—the maid evi­ dently. She quickly disappeared and was followed by Lady Hayward, whose arm was instantly seized by her hus­ band. "I want to speak to you before you dress there's just lime." He followed her up to her room, where tea was waiting on a little table by the lire. Lady Hayward's maid bad just put on an easy wrapper temptingly ready, and was busy getting oiit her dinner dress for her mistress. "I will send for you in a few...
