KATE ’ S STRATEGEM, I hrer tin per- erful It allowed on all deposits imnlo on r to the find of January, April, , October, from these dates re In a cosy breakfast root sons were, sealed around table. Mr. Morton, a line hndving man of 40, wealthy and a bachelor, mid Ids two young and protly meres, IJIlio and Kate Dale. “ Undo Bert, you mil to get married, ” said Kale, suddenly breaking a silence which had lasti d some minutes. What for, miss? ” asked her uncle, as he laid aside the. paper lie was reading. Well, ” rcplnpl Kate, “ you see Lil ’ ie is poing to nuirry Frank Hill and go to Chicago to live, and I,\ with a pretty blush, “ will marry Walter Field at the same time and go to Detroit; so, don ’ t you see, you will be alone, for you will not go with cidier of us.\ Well, what of that, Miss Puss? ” asked her uncle smiling. J should like to know who is going to look after your comfort and give you a good scolding when you come home late at night, ” demanded Kate in a voice of authority. Well, I can do very well without the scolding, and I expect that Aunt Mollie can take care of the rest, ” he answered lightly, amused at Miss Kate ’ s air. ‘ Aunt Mollie, indeed! Yea, she will do very well with the cooking, hut you he will not take care of the other things as she would if you wore married and there was some one to give orders about the housework, ” answered Kate, shaking her head. Well, I did not get married when I was a young man, and I don ’ t think I will now; and besides, there is no one whom I know or cure to marry,\ he added, sipping his coffee. There is little Miss Bell, ” retorted Kate, darting a quick, sly glance at her le from under her dark lashes. Bosh! ” he said nervously, while a faint (lush rose to his forehead. Well, then, there is the Widow Day- ton, and I know that she admires you and would willingly become Mrs. Mor ­ ton. ” Mr. Morton had a wholesome horror of the Widow Dayton, who had on Mwornl occasions tried to rapture the wealthy bachelor, but bad failed sadly; and of this Kate was well aware, and at times teased her uncle unmercifully. Heaven protect me from ever marry ­ ing her! She has two red headed, freckle-faced hoys, aid has badgered one man to death alrea ly, ” replied Mr. Morton hurriedly, as he pushed back his chair from the table. “ But, uncle,\ continued Kate, “ the widow has set her cap for you and you had better be careful or you will I m ; a married man before you know wliat you arc about.\ Yes; but you see, mbs, she cannot marry me unless I ask her to, and that I don ’ t intend to do,\ he rcturnol, as he hastily rose from the tabic and prepared to start for his place of business. “ Uncle, ” Kate culled after him as lie left the room, “ this is leap year, and if you don ’ t propose to her she can to you, and it would not surprise me one bit if she did.\ “ Oh, Kate, how can you tease uncle so?\ asked Lillie, after Mr. Morton had passed out of hearing. “ Have what? ” ‘ A joke on Uncle Bert. I am going to make Mrs. Dayton propose to him.\ “ How?” asked Lillie. “ This is leap year, and (uncle will get a proposal from Mrs. Dayton; if he doesn ’ t, my name is not Katharine Dale,\ answered Kate, nodding her head sagely, while her dark eyes spoke volumes of mischief. “ Kate, what do you moan? How can you make her propose? ” “ Just wait and you will sec. I can manage that part perfectly well, ” re ­ torted Kate, ns she danced gayly out of the room and ran up stairs, where she was soon busily engaged in some mys ­ terious scheme. Meanwhile Mr. Morton had not spent a very enviable forenoon, for the words Kate had spoken in the morning kept ringing in his ears, spite of all efforts to forget. “ Bosh! ” he exclaimed at last, throw ­ ing down his pen for the twentieth time, and glancing at his watch. “ One o ’ clock, and I have done nothing today. What a fool I am! Of course Kate was only joking. Mrs. Dayton would not dare to propose. Well, Tom, what is it! ” he asked, ns an errand boy en ­ tered. “ A letter, sir,\ raid the lad, ns he handid Mr. Mmton a large yellow mis ­ sive, and then darted quickly out of the • loo 1 with a broad grin upon his face. Mr. Morton tore open the envelope and drew forth the letter. His hand shook, and great drops of perspiration broke out on. Iris brow while he read the following my Mo “ Oh, for ttn come in here! ” ing voice. “ some sake ‘ You know he will hardly ever speak to a lady if he can help it.\ “ Yes, I know, and if ho hadn't been bashful he could have been married long ago to Miss Bell, ” retorted Kate. “ Mrs. Jones told me all about it; uncle was too timid to propose and Mias Bell is single yet. I do wiah the widow would propose to him, ” she added. “ Why Kate, you surely wouldn ’ t want uncle to marry such a vixen as Mrs. Day- ton f* Jaughed Lillie. “ No, 1 don ’ t want him to marry her, for aha would have him badgered to death in a month ’ s time; but it would bo fun if she only would propose to aybothHt would scare him Into marrying tome one else. ” 3t!cnc0 reigned for a few minutes after this speech of Kate ’ s; each was busy with her own thought*. All at once J to her feet, with mbchlef hi Md clapping her hande «- lines : I/r.

Heaven and earth! ” gasped Mr. ton, letting the letter drop from hia trembling hands, ami starting to his feet. “ Kate was rigid. Bhe intends to marry me whether nr no. What on earth am I to do?\ he groaned, sinking hack into his chair and dropping liis throbbing head iiikui his hands despairingly. It is an old adage that “ it never rains but it pours,\ and so thought Mr. Mor ­ ton, for the next moment a clerk put his head in at the floor and said: “ If you please, sir, Mrs. Dayton is in the s'oic ami wishes to see you at once upon important business. ” “ Eh! What?” almost shrieked Mr. Morton. “ Mis. Dayton in there? what shall I do?” he f ried, starting up wildly and darting behind the door. “ Yes, sir. What shall I tell her?” said the i hTk, looking as if he thought that Mr. Morton had gone crazy. rcy's sake don ’ t let her he exclaimed in a shnk- voioc. “ Don ’ t, Brown, there ’ s a fellow. Tell her anything — that I i, fir not in — tell her to come in other time. Get rid of her quick, way or other; but for Heaven ’ s lon ’ t let her come in here. I won't see her on any terms whatever.\ “ All right, sir, ” said Brown, as ho hacked out of the office, almost choking with laughter, as the situation of affairs and the cause of Mr. Morton ’ s frantic ac ­ tions (lashed through his mind. “ Oh my stars! ” ground Mr. Morton, as the door closed Irchind Brown. “ What on earth am I to do? Kate was right. What a fool I was that 1 did not ask Bessie Bell to marry mo year* ago I Then I would have been safe from tho clutches of that brazen-faced widow. ” He stepped from his place of retreat, ami, sinking into the nearest chair, bowed his head upon liis hands in per ­ plexed thought. Suddenly a bright idea struck him, and he exclaimed : “ I II do it yet — right away, too, and be done with it! ” Springing to Ids feet, he seized his hat and gloves and put I hem on hrrmed- |y. Then he went to the door, and in a nervous whisper called out t » tho clerk: “ Brown, has she gone yet? ” “ Yes, sir,\ replied Brown, while a broad smile spread over his face. • •Well, I am going home; I am ill; you will attend to locking up the store.\ “ Certainly, ” returned Brown. Mr. Morton hurried out and walked rapidly up the street until he arrived at a tiny white cottage. : Here he stopped and rang tho bell. The door wa» opened by a pretty, dark-haired, brown-haired woman of 35 or 40, who, when she t aught sight of her visitor's flushed face, and noticed hi* excited manner, ex ­ claimed : “ Mr. Morton, are you not well? What has happened T ’ “ Nothing, Bcsaie. Yea, I mean I have come to — to — \ he stammered, and then stop|>cd confused and crimson. “ Come in, ” said Mb* Bell, calmly, leading the w*y Into a cosy sitting rOom. Bhe placed a chair for her visitor and waited for him to speak. Mr. Morton did not take the offered chair, but remained standing toying nervously with the buttons on his gloves. For several momenta neither spoke, then a voice that would trembh, la spile of fais efforts to be calm, heaaid: “ Sarnia, I hart coma toaakyota **•**•». -Will ywsany “ Mr. Morton, surely you don't mean it! ” faltered Miw Bell, while a roey blush mounted to her smooth white brow. “ Yes, Bessie, I mean every word of It. I have never seen any woman that I loved but you; do you think you could care enough for me to be my wife? ” “ It ’ s so sudden^ ” stammered Miss Bell. “ I know it is, Bessie; but say yea — please do,\ he coaxed, gaining courage to plead his cause, now that the loe waa broken. What her answer was tho reader can judge; for three weeks later ho led her into his own homo, and introduced her as “ My wife, Mrs. Bessie Morton. ” Imagine the surprise and delight of Kate and Lillie at this sudden announce ­ ment. “ Oh, Lill, didn't I tell you how it would end? And I am glad of itl ” cried Kate, after she had kissed her new aunt and nearly smothered Mr. Morton with a “ bear hug ” in her delight at tho turn affairs had taken. “ But uncle, what about tho widow?” she quizzed, after the surprise and excitement had somewhat subsided. Mr. Morton looked searcliiugly into her face for a moment, and catching tho gleam of mischief that Bjiarklcd in her eye, he exclaimed: “ 80, miss, it was you was it? I might have known it was one of your tricks; hut then, all is well that ends well,\ he added, with a loving glance at tho sweet face at the other side of tho room. — Waver ley. How Wounded Men Behavo. If a soldier is wounded his behavior depends on the manner in wh ch ho is wounded and whether ho is of a quiet or excitable temper. Flesh wounds re ­ ceived in action aro in many cases not felt at all, until tho blood comes and the man gets exhausted. When tho bone is struck the shock is great and accom ­ panied by acute pain. I have seen poor fellows struck in tho breast by minio balls remaining in action for minutes, then sinking on their knees or falling on their faces. Not all such severe wounds arc mortal. Sergeant Turo of tho Twelfth Missouri received n hall which went right through both temples, and he lived for years afterward; 0 soldier who was shot through tho left lung lived for a whole year; General Shields was shot through h s breast in Mexico and reached an advanced ago. Tho worst hits aro of course those by canister and round shot and are mostly mortal. They take off arms or legs, or tho head of a man, ns wai the case with tho Cap ­ tain of a Southern battery in the battle of Pea Ridge. Splinters of shells are less dangerous, but when thrown into groiqis and columns nmy disable many men. A single shell fiom a Paixhnn gun sent from Fort Duncan, Maryland Heights, in my presence, to Bolivar Heights aga ; nst a group of Southern horse ­ men killed General Lewis and wounded or killed nineteen of his companions. I have heard wounded soldiers groaning under great pain, but I never heard them crying out or using profane Ian guage. When halting on horseback on the right of the Twenty-fourth Massa chusetts in the battle of New-Market the regiment was under fire at close range for about forty minutes, losing 200 men in killed and wounded, hut not a loud cry was heard from those who were wounded. — Ohieagt L tiger. Clotk Made of Com Husks. One of the lx»t utilized waste pro ­ ducts in Austria, resulting in tho manu- facturc of largo quantities of paper and doth, are com husks. Thme are boiled with an alkali in tubular liotlera, as a result of which tho fibres of the husks are found at tho bottom of the boiler In a spongy condition, filled with glutinous substance, and which proves to lie a |>cr- feet dough of commeal, containing in a concentrated form all tho pabulum origi ­ nally contained in the husk. The glu ­ tinous mat er is pressed out from tho fibre by hydraulic apparatus, leaving tho fibre in tho shape of a mass or chain of longitudal thrvads, interspersed w ith a dense mass of short fibre. Tho linen made from tho long fibre furnishes a very good substitute for the coarser kinds of fax and hemp, and is superior to jute, gunny cloth, coir and tho like. The paper, for which mostly the short fllxfee are used — the long fibres ronstitu- Mng the material for spinning- -i* Mronger than papers of tho same weight made from linen or cotton rags, its hard ness and firmness of grain exceeding'!hat of tho host dipped F.ngluh dtawing papers, being especially adapted for pencil drawing, atenographio writing •nd water colors; its durability exceeds, It is claimed, that of paper niado from any other material, and the corn husk pan hrnent is not at exposed points destroyed by insects; if the gluten is left in the pulp the pa|>er nm lx- made extremely transparent without sacrificing any portion of its strength. Again the fibre is easily worked, either alone or in combination with rags, into Hie finest writing or printing papers; it also readily takes any tint or color, and can I k * worked almost to as much advantngn into stout Wrapping papers of superior quality as into fine note and envelope papers. Flexible Stone. There lay this morning on the desk of Mr Samuel Hodgkins, acting chief clerk of the War Department, a stone u rapped in brown paper. It weighed about n pound, and was perhaps Hi inches in length, 2j in width and nne-third of an Inch thick. The texture of the stone was fine and presented no evidence of •(ratification, and was smooth over the entire surface. A knife blade made no impression on the particles. There was no doubt os to ita being a genuine stone, but it nevertheless possesne I the ficxibll- Ity of n pioeo of India rub' er. When taken in tho hand and shaken in the di ­ rection of its flat surfaces it would bend hack and forth with a dull, mulllcd sound. The move ­ ment was more of a laxity in the adlre- lion apparently than an elasticity. When hold horizontally by one end the other would drop and remain in that position. With the two ends supported on ichts, tho free centre could I m ; pii-sned half an inch below the middle line. With one end held llnuly on the desk the other could bo Ixmt upward over an im '• The movement was not conllned to the one direction —in the plane of the flat sm faces —hut the entire htom- sccrueil to be constructed on the principle of an uni versa 1 joint, with a moveineiH in a'l di ­ rections under pro-sure. It came from a mountain in North Carolina, and bears the narnoof “ flexible sand stone.\ The entire immnlairi i> composed of this material, and pieces cut at random exhibit the same fl< xible properties. — Wnnhinyton H'ar.

Proc'or declared that few even among scientific men appreciate tho aiim/.ing mysUry of the force wo rail gravity | Wonderful as is the familiar attraction of 1 bodies to tho earth, gravitation is ul | together a greater mystery when consid- ( ered as a property | m » shcssc «| by matter. | Tho universality of the pro|ierty which 1 belong* not merely to this or that sub- I stance, but to every Mihstunre, solid, liquid or gaseous, and not to such sggre j gations of matter, but to the ultimate j molecules and atoms is an uniazing, if not an ap|>allhig mystery.

But if tho universality of gravi ­ tation, and the infinite range of the force thus exerted by all matter aro won ­ derful, infinitely more wonderful i* tho instantaneous nature of its operation. Thii quality of universal gravitation is indeed so wonderful that few who hear of it for the first time can even admit that it is |>oMible. Yet the astronomer has been able to demonstrate that the interval of time required for gravity to extend ita action from one body in space to any other body, even if separated by a distance so great that light at 187,000 miles per second takes thousands of years to cross it, is less than any interval which can be measured. — TVcntea (X J.)

The longer 1 stay the more I am impressed with the unaccounta ­ ble ways of the dcsccmlnuta of tho Aztecs. Tho society ‘ lady ’ of tho peons, if I nmy s|H'ak of her as such, has a way of doing up her back hair that I have never seen duplicated anywhere. “ It is no I chm than to put a great clav crown on tho top of her cranium, in which the hair is matted, like plgJ bristles in plaster. This crown rearheH up, say eight or nine I uc I uh , and looks like a great plaster rone. It serves a double pur|M)*o. Not only is it worn at evening parties, but throughout the day. Indeed, tho primary object of the mud cone wa» to preserve the head from the InteiiHn heat of tho southern mid Now, however, it Is worn at evening halls, and no daily' thinks hrrnrlf n- chorehc ami in positively good form tin less she has her novel crown on. The hair is matted and twisted and colled all around in it, and it may be depended on that it cannot romo loose ami come turn bling down and cause her any embarrnss ment in company. The longer a cone is worn the harder It gets, ami when it has reached the age of a month, »ay, it is as hard as a brickbat, and would have t<> be Hiimshcd to pieces with a sledge if (heir were no other way discovered. This, however, happily is tho ease. “ Tl»« old Aztecs invented, nml the secret 1ms been perpetuated in tho race, a peculiar solution compounded from wild plants which knocks the plaster topknot to smithereens. It takes some time to do it, however, usually from five to six hours, and during tills time the lovely Aztec maiden or matron must soak her head in a big jar of this solution. It is the proper thing for the women to change these cones at least once a month After that the whitish soil of which it is composed changes to a dull yellow and tho wearer lose* caste. Ami there is caste among the peons as much as them is among any other classes of |H'ople. “ These native women are fond of necklaces, and you will often see them going about without nothing on except a necklace and a mud crown. O i I iom again will have very slight rniliieiil. The men do not wear mud crowns, but they aie often limited in their attire. Their habits fire extremely simple in the main, though in some other respect* they go off 011 wild langeiilH. “ During a larger part of the year you will h « c , If you will Journey through tills region, hammocks slung front all Die trees at night time.
