gisters ordering you round, and
nagging and making fun of yon,

Pa is grandma’s only child, and
that’s the reason there’s so few of

have other relatives, but they live
’way up North, and I haven’t seen
half of them, and couldn’t even
tell yon half their names.
Grandma lives on a farm about
two miles from the town of Shel

lady, she’s as spry and active as if
she was young, and manages the
farm by herself just as well as
for the howly Ysrgin’s sake.’

“How can I know?”she groaned.
“I had awful dhrnmes all night of

she began to howl again.
Pa went to the town, 'but sure
enough Mr. O’Brien wasn’t to be

worked said be had gone off on
the north-hound train, but said he
would be-back in a day or two.

We live so far-from Pine Grove
—that’s the name of the farm
that we always get there a day or
two before New Tear’s. I mnst
say for grandma there isn’t any
thing stinting at her table, or
winking or frowning at yon not to
take two helps of this or that, and
when she catches ma or the girls
doing it at me she calls out:
“For goodness’ sake, let Bob eat
as much as he wants to. Where’s
the sense of stinting a boy of thir
teen in his eating? I like to see
young people eat as if they enjoy
ed their meals, and not mincing
and dallying over tbeir plates.
Let the boy alone, Maria.”
Grandma has a cook; an Irish
woman named Molly MoShane,
just as jolly and good-humored as
herself. She’s lived ten years at
Pine Grove, andshe’s as glad to
see ns all as grandma is. She’s
no beanty, Molly isn’t, for she’s
short and squat, and has no more
figure than a cotton bale, and her
face is broad and red, and her nose
looks as if it had been mashed flat.
She isn’t young, either, but for
all that she's got a bean named
Terrence O’Brien. A worthless
young fellow he is, 'grandma says,
wb-, wants to get- a| Molly’a ■ ag of
savings, -.ltd if-he can cajole her j
ner, batshe cried qnarts between
That was the day before New
Tear, and after dinner grandma
took os into the pantry to see the
things. bh;L couldn’t begin to
tell yon what loads of pies and
cakes and froite and candies there
were, but we hardly saw anything
for looking and wondering at a
monstrous’ turkey that hong from
a hook in the ceiling. It was
mammoth, and grandma said that
old as she was, she had never seen
anything like it. It was of a big
breed to begin with, and had been
fattening in a coop for a year.
“For two months,” grandma
said, “that tnrkey has been fed on
pecans and walnuts, and just look
at the fat! Hit isn’t delicicions,
then Pm no judge of a fine tur
Even Molly got up her spirits
over that tnrkey, and told ns how
she wbb going to staff it with truf
fles, and such gravy! After that
she had another crying spell, and
took herself off to bed.
The next morning after break
fast she took the keys out of her
pocket and started off to the pan
fry. I %vent along,, bnt she was
ahead. She opened the door and
out: Of litem withouTiaraJing M SI 8 K III ^ cried 0ut ’
* & “Where s the tnrkey?
“The tnrkey!” cries grandma,
springing up.- “What does that
he’ll do it; but if he can’t, he’ll
make her Mrs. O’Brien, and get
away with the money. But Molly
keeps a tight grip ou her bag. She
and Terence count the money over
every two or three monthji, hut she
holds on to every nickel; and he
can’t get one of out of her.
Pa tried to get her to put her
money in a savings bank, but she
hooted at him.
“No, sor, I’ll niver be that silly
to put me money where I canuot;
see it whin I want. Banks break,
and if I had all the goold and sil
ver and jools av the world, no
hanks wonld'see ’em, and swaller
em np. Sometimes I dhrame av
me money, and thin it does me all
the good in the wurld to open me
chist, and see me hag all safe.”
“Take care, Molly!” pa said,
laughing. “Since Terry knows so
well, where yon Keep your treasure,
some bright morning yon’ll wake
np and find both bag and sweet
Molly got red, and cried ont:
“An’do ye mane to say sor, that
Terrence O’Brien, what comes av
the good old shtock,—why, the
O’Briens come av the kings ay
MnnBther,—that he would demane
himself to beja dirty thafe? Ah,
“Very well,” pa said, still laugh
ing. “HI were you, Molly, I’d
change my hiding-place now and
then. It won’t do any harm.”
She didn’t answer, but went
abont looking troubled until gr and
ma had to scold her for being so
absent-minded as to put sugar in
stead of salt into the soup, and
burned the chicken to a crisp.
“What is the matter with you,
Molly?” says grandma.
“It’s the evil one that’s got into
me, I think, ma’am,” Molly said.
“I’m just dazed, and I feel as if
some great throuble was cornin’.’’
That was at night, and the next
morning there was the greatest
hullabaloo you ever heard. Molly’s
bag of money was gone from her
chest, and she was in hysterics.
The strangest thing of all wbs, she
always wore the key of the chest
ou a string around her neck', and
it never came off, day or night
The key was in itB place, and the
cheat locked as usual, but when
she opened it the money bag waa
“It isu’t there, grandma,” I said,
and then everybody ran to the
pantry. Molly waa sitting on a
chair, looking scared to death, and
gasping for breath.
“It’s gone! it’s gone. 1 ” she hol
lered, jumping np and clapping
her hands; “It’s- goriSj like me
money 1 - 'The -dhoor was a locked;
ahd thfh key in me\ pocket.’ - The
windows"is barred, ‘ look! They
haven’t been touched! Howly
saints, bntit is bewitched the house
Well, it was just as she .said.
Every one looked at each other,
and graodma lifted Molly’s head,
and slapped her hack, and made
her drink some water. When she
came to herself she was white and
trembling like a leaf. Toil couldn’t
hire her to touch the tar key, for
she said the witches had been
moving it, and ma and grandma
had to stuff it and put it to roast.
Pa said he was sure that Molly had
put the turkey in the chest, may
be when she was asleep. _ At any
rate we made* a splendid dinner,
though Molly said she was expefet-
ing us us to drop down dead, or ran
raving mad after eating it. That’s
the way she said bewitched things
sefved the folks in the old country.
We sat around the fire late that
night, talking over^thipgs. Just
as we were going to bed Jim, the
hired man, came to the door, and
said: “I don’t know what’s the mat
ter with Molly. She’s walking in
the yard barefoot, with just a night
gown on, and it’s freezing hard.
I spoke to her, and she never turn
ed her head, but jnstkepton.”
“Just as I thought,” pa said,
jumpingup, “tirewoman is a som
nambulist, a sleep-walker. Ton
must not make a noise, or wake
We came upon her at the bars.
She polled ont one as well as I
could do, got through the hole, and
then moved swiftly toward the
hen-honfe, which was in the hack-
lot. We followed her there, and
she was fumbling in tne straw and
moss of an empty nest She drew
something out, and as the moon
was as bright as day, me could see
that it was a white bag.
“It’s her money, snre,” whisper
She took the bag to another nest,
and covered it there carefully, and
then marched ont of the hen-house,
not seeing ns, though we were al
most touching her.
She went straight to her room,
and pa said we must leave the mon
ey in the nest, and we could tell her,
and let her get it herself.
Ton ought to have seen’her the
next day when we took her to the
hen-house, and showed her the lost
treasure. She hugged the bag,and
kissed it, and cried over it, as if it
were a lost child; and then she hol
lered about her injustice to her dar-
liut Terry O’Brien, and how she
would send for him, and marry
him that very day.
I am glad to say. “Misther
O’Brien” didn’t have the spend
ing Molly’s earnings. He had
been concerned in a burglary, and
the police were after him, and that
was the reason he had left town
in such a hurry.
He never came hack, and Molly
still lives with grandma.
^retjSan-.women may, moreover, be
divided into two kinds. All of ns
have seen the old lady, generally
white haired, with kindly, pleas
ant features, on which time has
set unfriendly marks; who still re
tains all her attractiveness. Note
how the hoys and girls adore her.
They will go to her and confide
their sorrows, their hopes, their
bright ambitions, even when they
would not breathe a word to" their
mothers. The kindly, loving in
terest evinced in a lad’s affairs by
such a one has time and again first
implanted the impulses in his
heart which eventually led him on
to an honorable career.
Quickly, almost by stealth, the
good work is done by such, and the
good seed sown which will ripen
after a time into a rich and abttn
dant crop. On the other hand, we
have most of ns seen, perhaps in
real life, certainly on the1 stage,
tbe fascinating adventuress who
by her thrilling beaute de diahle,
enslaves men’s souls, and leads
them (on the stage) to dare all for
her sake. This is directly opposed
to the sweet old lady in her old
fashioned chair,and thes etwo form
the opposite poles between
which the women who fascinate
Types differ, and any. one you
may select has some position be
tween these two opposites. Take
for instance, a’pretty and maybe
witty woman who, hardly of her
own free will, makes every man
fall in love with her to a greater
or less degree. She may be inno
cent of all evil intention, but her
position on the scale is not far re
moved from that of the melodra
matic sorceress. Or, again take
instance of the pretty young ma
tron, -who, while devoted to home,
husband and children, Jet has sev
eral intimate friends-of the male
persuasion. But her influence is
all foi^good. Her fascination is
exerted in a worthy cause, and she
has found out a great truth—that
there is no friendship so lasting,
so pleasant and so true as one be-
Jtween persons of opposite sexes,
where a’ true feeling of bonne
camarraderie exists and there is
no pretense t'- love-making Such
a women, if she iiv^s long enough
bids fair to develo.riuto a snowy
haired old lady on whose friend
ship the children will rely.

The Blair Educational hill, as
reported to the Senate, has several
amendments. Among them are the
following: L The quota of any
State which shall he refused by
the Legislature, shall be. covered
into the Treasury, instead of being
divided among the rest of the
States. 2. The requirement that
copies of school hooks, authorized
by the school hoards, shall be de
posited with the Secretary of the
Interior, is stricken ont; also the
section giving the respective Leg
islatures power to ^distribute the
funds apportioned to the various
Territories. 3. It is explicitly
stated that the training of persons
of different colors to become teach
ers shall not be required in the
same schools. Mr. Blair gave no
tice that as soon as possible after
the close of the holiday recess he
would call the bill up for action.
It was placed on the calendar. A
third bill, containing the outlines
of a national-school law has heen
introduced by SenatorTngalls. It
provides for the appointment of a
national board of education, con
sisting of one member from each
State and Territory and the Dis
trict of Columbia, who shall have
charge of all the machinery of a
school system, the districts of
which shall be established where-
ever the parents of twenty-five
children ask for the appointment
of a teacher. All instruction shall
be in English, the age of pupils
may be from four to twenty-one
years and the curriculum shall in
clude the arts and sciences.—Na
