SL'-t ::, P. IN WIG AJD COWN. London World. Lady Hay ward was expected every minute at Hayward castle, and the great entrance doors stood wide open, spite of the cold. There were three, or lour men servants standing in the haU, while the old gray headed butler took up his position on the steps. Lord Hay ward came and stood by him a few seconds at a time, and lis­ tened for the wheals, and then went back and fidgeted about the hall, whistling to himself. Evidently he was very uneasy about something or other. Nobody supposed for a mo­ ment that that something or other was connected with Lady Hayward she had never given him a" moment'a uneasiness. She was the most precise and perfect of women, always in the right, and fully aware of the fact, and Lord Hay ward, who was a very good fellow, accustomed to re­ gard himself as not overburdened with brains, was very anxious to talk to her about something that worried him. The house party was a large one in fact, the castle was full. But ever...

ai i. .. .. lljgf Little Falls Transcript. W. M. .FDLLBB, FaUiihtr. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. From eight to thirty-two below zero was the story told by thermome­ ters in various parts of Massachusetts on the 19th of Jan. The collection of internal revenue during the first six months of the fis­ cal year ending June 30, 1886, was $57,503,503, being a decrease of $1, 054,340 as compared with the corre­ sponding period of the previous fiscal year. Ex-Governor Alger, of Michigan, found 500 needy families during the recent cold snap, and sent a barrel of flour and a ton of coal to each. Such men as Alger, George W. Childs and W. W. Corcoran are doing much to blunt the sharp edge of criticism which is now directed against million­ aires generally. The Dominion of Canada is as poor­ ly defended by bulwarks and guns as the United States. Historic Quebec is perched on a hill formidable in the days of Montcalm, but now merely an eievated target for moder# shells. It has only two or three guns ...

We watched the stag* coach coming slowly np the hill in some trepidation of spirit—"we" means Trixy and I— twin sisters, as like as two peas, and lull o! pranks as lcittens, no mamma said of us. Mamma, Trixy, and I lived at Rose Lodge, in beautiful Devonshire and in the coach, approaching nearer every moment, wasour cousin Huldah—our doad father's dead Bister's only child who, at mamma's request, had been permitted by her guardian to make her home with us. "I wonder if we shall like her?" mused Trixy,alluding to our unknown cousin, whom we had never seen. "Of course you willl" said mamma, coming that moment on the veranda. "I am prepared to love her already." "But will she like us?'! asked I, wondering at the likes and dislikes of people in general, and of relatives and those of kindred blood in particular. "How could she do otherwise?" laughed Trixy. "Are not we three the invincibles, who, like what was his name—came, saw, and conquered?" Just...

Yet both the history and the present condition of Austria-Hun­ gary arc full of deep interest for those whose tastes lead them to enjoy the study of nations and political systems. As the very name iiopliwH, Austria-H«n gary is a dual monarchy that is, two monarchies combined iuto one by a common tie. There is only one other ujonarehy of the sort in the world, that of Sweden and Norway, which two countI'ifc* lire still more distinct from each other than arc Austria and Hun­ gary, for they have no common govern­ ment whatever. r:' Austria, that part of the Empire which lies west of the RiverLeitha, and Hungary, which lies east of that river, form each a kingdom eutirely b}' itself.

S'S 'M r4 v' ,S il I: Little Falls Transcript. W. It FULLER, Publisher. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. Gsn. John C. Fremont has just cele­ brated his seventy-fourth birthday. He is now residing in Washington, Gen. Boulanger says not a French soldier has been sent to the German frontier. Gen. Boulanger is regarded as a hot-headed patriot, but it is apparent he isn't half as anxious for war as the correspondents who mis­ represent him. Krupp' the great gun manufacturer, is said to have the largest income ol any man in Germany. He manufac­ tures a big gun for one power and then a little bigger and more destruc­ tive one for another power, and thus foments a gentle rivalry exceedingly profitable to Krupp. Edward Blake, the Canadian Liber­ al leader, who will probably beat Sir John A. Mcdonald very badly at the polio, is a man of massive face and burly figure. He is considered the best speaker in Canada, and if Lord Dufferin be considered an authority, a perfect orator. His grandfather was Mem...

The special craze among our young lady boarders just then was the making of all sorts of pretty pillows, which they filled with pine needles or buds of the fra­ grant balsam fir, and embroidered with various appropriate mottoes, such as "Dream of the woods," "The pines shall whisper peace," "Give me of your balm, O Fir-tree," etc., etc. And as the picking of these nine nee­ dles and pitchy fir-tips was disagreea­ ble work for dainty white fingers, it was quite the fashion lor all the chiv alric young men in the house to vol­ unteer their services in t...

I had done spotting" and "shadowing" andhad helped 011 two or three cases, when 1 was sent to Milwaukee to look after an embezzler. The case was stated in a nut-shell. A Mrs. Pierce, a widow of wealth, and a woman who trusted her servants altogether too much, re­ ceived one day from the east by ex­ press a package of money amounting to $14,000. She had been in the habit of sending her butler to the bank to make deposits for her, and now and then, to draw money on her written order. He had been with her for several years as a sort of man of all work in the house, and she had found him strictly honest. She gave him the money to deposit without a fear of his being tempted. He was not seen after he left the house. He did not go to the bank, and for...
