I beg to return your ring, with many thanks for the honor; also your letters, the scarab and the set of coral you sent me from Naples. Very cordially yours, NINA DORRINGTON. Nina threw down her pen and walked to the window of the darkening room. The library was frigid, and the girl shivered as she pulled aside the curtain. It was snowing hard, and the wind had piled the feathery stuff in huge mounds, obliterating steps and curbstones. A small boy headed his way through the storm, looking in vain for the_pumbers on the'houses. Nina opened the door herself and called him. Then, giving him careful directions about the package and letter, she paid him handsomely and watched the tot in blue uniform trudge down the avenue with the remnants of her happiness under his arm. She stood an instant in the hallway. Then, realizing that her chill was mostly physical, she rang for lights and went upstairs. The door of her aunt's room was partly open, and the ruddy glow of the log fire tempted her to enter. The mound of shawls and rugs on the couch in the corner indicated that the worthy lady had not wakened from her afternoon nap. Nina sat down on a hassock and gazed into the fire. Now that she had taken such a radical step, doubts began to torment her. Had she been impatient? Should she have waited a little longer? Indignation gradually gave way to self pity, and tears rolled down her cheeks. "Nina, is that you? What is the matter, dear? Are you sick?" She jumped up quickly and dashed the tears from her eyes, but the room was dark, and her aunt could not see her face. "No, indeed. Not sick, only cold, dear. The house is like ice, and it looked so warm and cozy in here I came in to dream for.,a few minutes before dressing for dinner." "Oh, dear, it must be the new furnace, Nina! It has not worked properly since your uncle had it put in. Would you mind calling them up now before you dress? There's a dear. Leave word for them to send some one the first thing in the morning?" "What is the.name of the firm?" "Let me see. Van Norton & Hemphill, I believe. Yes, that is it, I am sure." "Why, that is Howard's firm," said Nina unsteadily. "Is that so? Mercy, child, that draft is unbearable! Please hurry and close the door." "Hello." "Hello. Is that Van Norton & Hemphill's?" "Yes." Her heart leaped. The voice was Howard's, she was sure. So she had been right, after all. He was back. His only possible excuse was nil. But he would find her note and package when he got home. This is the residence of Mr. J. Lambert Brown, Fiftieth street." "Very well. I have it, thank you." Yes, it was Howard. She could scarcely speak. The house—that is—the furnace is —that is to say—oh!" She shivered and started determinedly all over again. "Hello. Is that Van Norton & Hemphill's?" Yes, this is the same place," in an amused tone. "Is there anything I can do for you, madam?" 'The house is freezing. The new furnace is not working right at all. Please send a man the first thing in the morning to fix it I—we—I am so cold now I can hardly talk." Hearing a subdued laugh, she snap-ned up the receiver. The idea! Then it occurred to her that he likely would not dream it was she. There were so many Browns in town; besides, she thought bitterly, he had evidently forgotten all about ; the»address she had sent him. The small lace handkerchief refused in flie least, "but It was a voice she could listen to forever. She forgot about the cold. "Now, O'Brien, you go and get the tools and bring Mason along with you. I am going to stay here a minute, arid look things over. It has to be done right this time. This is a nice condition to find things in the very day I get home. First-thing I heard wheii I got to the office. How many more jobs like this are there?" ; Nina did not listen to-the explana- < A CLEVER ILLUSION. An Amusing Experiment With ~a Pic ture and a Card.

His words rang in her ears. Howard just home yesterday! Wh§£ could it mean? ph. it was only too plain what it meant. He had come on a later boat, and she had wronged him. She There was no more talking now, only an occasional scraping as though sotne one was sliding the dampers. , Howard was evidently there alone. Suddenly a flush dyed her cheeks. Her eyes grew very bright, and a lit-, tie smile hovered around her lips. Her heart was beating fast now, but her lips tightened. She sprang out of bed and threw on a dressing gown. She ran quickly to the wall and stooped, with her lips.close to the wrought Iron cover. "Hello!" she called. "Hello!" "Is that the man from Van Norton & Hemphill's?" • ' "Yes, madam." "Are you fixing the furnace?" "Yes; it is in pretty bad shape." "Is there any heat in it at all?" "No; I am standing inside." -r-f "Can any one hear us?" - "I have closed all the dampers but this one." . "Are you cold?" "Very. This cellar is like Greenland." • • "Why don't you go to the kitchen and get warm?" "I am happier here." "That is a very odd place to be happy, inside a furnace, 6 o'clock in the morning, dark, thermometer down to zero. You must feel quite hilarious." "I am more hilarious and less cold than I was at G last night." "Why last night, may I ask?" "The cause of the fall in temperature was a letter which registered about 50 degrees below zero F." "Did—did you think so?" "Didn't you mean it so?" "Are you quite sure you know who I am?" "Are you sure you know who l ain?" "Oh, Howard, can you ever forgive me? I am so miserable. I 'heard your voice, and I couldn't let you go without, atleast saying 'goodbye- Did yoii know I was here?" "Yes, Nina; the addresses were the same. How soon can you be down here and get this ring of yours?" "Darling, do you forgive me and do you really love me still?" "Love you, darling? I counted the minutes all the way home. I had just reached the office when you called me up." "Then you knew it was I?" "No, dear, but I do now. I was so happy to hear a voice like yours that I fairly laughed out loud. Darling, do hurry down. If I can't see your dear face in two minutes I'll climb up this pipe." "What did you think of my terrible note, Howard, tell me?" "What! The sassy little letter you wrote yesterday? Didn't pay any attention to it, saucebox! Are you coming down or are you not? I am going to turn on all the dampers, and every one can hear what you say. Now, will you come?" "Just one little word more, Howard. What did you come out here so early for?" "To see you, of course, silly. What else?" .. « "And all that noise"— "Did it on purpose to wake you up. You didn't think I was going to wait any longer, did you?" shamelessly. "Howard, I cried all night" "You deserved to," severely. "And, Howard"— i A warning rattle of the dampers Interrupted her. She laughed happily. "All right, d6ar, in two minutes." And something that sounded suspiciously like a kiss wended its lonely way through the crooked tin pipe. into some clothes plus a warm opera cloak time for dinner. That night she slept very little. One minute she blamed herself for being so precipitate; the next she reproached Mm for his seeming indifference.

Then followed 1 a few orders about valves, drafts and Joking With Handel. A musical joke of a stupendous nature was played upon Handel when he was the manager of the king's theater in the Haymarket, says the London Telegraph. It was a constant maxim of the great composer, whose sensitive ear abominated the tunings up of an orchestra, that all the instruments should be placed ready tuned at the music stands and that the members of the orchestra should enter like a troop of soldiers, take up their instruments like one man and at the stroke of the baton begin. One evening a practical joker contrived to have Handel engaged in conversation for some, min. utes behind the scenes while he himself entered the orchestra and quietly altered the tunings of all the instruments. Nobody was a bit the wiser till the baton was raised, and then the crash came—a crash of utter and supreme discord! Handel was exasperated to frenzy. It Is on record that he seized his wig and flung It at the leader of the band, kicked the double bass viols to splinters and demolished the kettledrums, with many more amenities of the same description. >' did not understand . gnd Uved ^ bjB Sixteenth Century Surgery. „ Surgery in the sixteenth century was by no means the refined and gently humane science of the present day. Anaesthetics and antiseptics were unknown, and the operating theater .was often just where the poor patient fell. In one of the many battles in which the fighting Duke of Guise engaged he was knocked down'by an arrow .from the enemy's! ranks, which pierced his head between the, nose and one of the eyes. Pare, the famous- French surgeon; was on thfe field, and he immediately put his foot on the duke's face and drew the arrow out by sheer brute force.

Of course he will doubt it. Then make him stand opposite the light so that the card will not throw a shadow, and after looking close to the card for a few seconds the wonderful phenomenon will appear to him.—Magical Experiments. FOOLSCAP PAPER. Origin of the Name and the Tragedy Associated With It. We all know what foolscap paper is for. Don't we make use of it daily? But how many of us know where and when It originated? Has not the reason of its name been an insoluble puzzle to us? ^ When Chtirles I. of Ehgland~ was on the throne he granted many monopolies for governmental -support, among which was the manufacture of paper. The watermark of the finest sort was the royal arms of England. The consumption of this article was great, and people who secured the sole right to sell it soon acquired Immense fortunes. Parliament set this monopoly aside, and when Charles I. was brought to the scaffold they ordered the royal arms, taken from the paper and a fool, with his cap and bells, to be substituted. „ It is now about 250 years since the foolscap was taken from the paper, but that size of sheet still retains the name and the watermark placed there to the indignity of King Charles. An International Calamity. If a colored waiter at a hotel should happen to drop a dish containing a roast turkey, the average man would be likely to say that it was only an ordinary accident, with no more serious result than the breaking of the dish and the paying of a fine by the waiter, followed perhaps by his discharge. But . a certain newspaper writer has found in such a; Catastrophe a complication of international calamities fearful to contemplate, nothing less than the downfall of Turkey, the overthrow of Greeca, the breaking up of China and the humiliation of Africar About Animals.
