dered the great hall of Hamilton Court
to be eon verted for the t*’_;ue into a
theater. There, in der the direction of
Steele, “whose political services had
been poorly recompensed hy granting
him some theatrical privileges,” seven
performances were given. Among the
plays were “Hamlet,” “Sir Courtly

Wife and Have a Wife.” Among the
players were Colley Cibber, l'inketh

Mrs. Porter and Mrs. Younger.
In former times the fee paid by the
sovereign to his servants for a play
noted at Whitehall had been £2O. For
these plays at Hampton Court, King
George, besides paying the actors their
ordinary day's wage and traveling ex

the managers. The players were re

Most people will welcome with joy
the exit of the present hideous fashion
of of holding feminine draperies away
from the contrast of mud and dust, on
the streets. Women are like
sheep, in some respects, and few
are strong minded enough to oppose
the latest fashion, even though it
means an ugly, graceless and thor
oughly unpleasant way of clutching
ones skirts tightly about the form to
the detritement of all semblance of
grace or beauty of carriage, and to
the great disapproval oil) fastidious
masculine eyes. Let us hope that it
will soon be relegated to the limbo of
other hideous fashion that annoy the
“things that were.”

dress'd each other by the titles which
belonged to their several stations. But
they had been schoolmates, and when
the senator told a story of school days
the accumulated ice of forty years
thawed in a burst of laughter, and they

yelled between gasps: ‘Stop us! Slop

Though Mercury is one of the small
est of the planets, it is perhaps the
most troublesome to the astronomer.
It lies so close to the stilt that it is
seen but seldom in comparison with
the other great planets. Us orbit is
very eccentric, and it experiences ilis
turlinnees by the attraction of other
bodies in a way not yet fully under
stood. A special difficulty has also
been found in the attempt to place
Mercury in the weighing scales. Wo
can weigh the whole earth, we can
weigh the sun, the moon and even
Jupiter and other planets, but Mercury
presents difficulties of a peculiar char
acter. I.e Yerrier, however, succeeded
in devising a method of weighing it.
lie demonstrated that our earth is
attracted by this planet, and lie showed
how the amount of attraction may be
disclosed by observations of the sun,
so that from an examination of the ob
servations he made an approximate
determination of the mass of Mercury.
Le Yerrier's result indicated that the
weight of the planet was about the fif
teenth part of the weight of the earth.
In other words, if our earth was placed
in a balance and fifteen globes, each
equal to Mercury,-were laid in the oth
er the scales would hang evenly.—“ St
ory of the Heavens.”

Copyright, 1601, by .1. J. Knox
A shower of almond blossoms, a low,
musk. 1 laugh, and the world had jus!
begun for the young Ah Gong.
It was the week of the Chinese New
Year, the time when every heart Celes
tial beats with joy, and the heart of tin,
baml.some young Ciiiu:;n an bent with
more than the usual allotment of joy
as he glanced upward to find the
source of the snowy shower of the om
nipresent almond blossom. Was it a
woman who had dared? In that glance
upward liis whole soul went out to the
owner of the sweet, piquant face as it
leaned far out over a mass of Chinese
lilies and almond blossoms, and bis
young heart thriiicd with something
that went straight to the heart of the
fair one, the one who dared.
Willi all Hie coquetry of her sex, she
smiled upon him in a sweet, shy way
uot to be resisted by one of the tem
perament of Ah Gong. Who could
wonder that in the sweet intoxication
of that glance he forgot that he had a
wife? A wife who was old and ugly
and like a piece of parchment, not a
sweet, dimpled, perfumed thing ilk*
The fair one, Ah Leon, had been
burning her incense before the good
Joss and had bowed her pretty head,
glistening with Jewels, so many times
upon the rugs and waved her sandal
wood sticks so dutifully. And while
doing this it had seemed to her maiden
heart that it must be lovely to he good,
ns good as joss would like one to he,
and after her devotions she had
stepped out upon the long balcony
overlooking the streets in order to gaze
upon the ever changing crowd.
The narrow streets were lined with
almond blossoms and lilies, and in
front of every door and on all the pic
turesque balconies, swayed by the
breeze, glowed Hie great, round lan
terns, nnd in every doorway were the
little bowls of burning incense and the
red papers to scare away the devil. Far
up in the latticed windows burned
large red candles and from these same
windows peeped happy faces.
Ah Gong looked again, and the more
he looked the mc.-e was he convinced
that liis soul was hi great peril and
that it was absolutely imperative that
he should at once repair to the joss
house and supplicate the gods. He
suddenly remembered that he had been
very lax in that respect lately, and
with a boldness quite remarkable for
one who cared nothing for these things
he mounted the stairway and—well—
“hearts are hearts the weary world
over.” There conies a time to every
one when the sound of one voice and
tho j glance from two eyes have the
power to thrill our heartstrings and
make one forget everything except the
of being iovtnk-That time
She said to the maid: “Ah, Suey,
look! You think btmeby he come? My
hair—is it pretty? My lips—are they
red? What makes me feci so strange?
Will the good joss be angry?”
“No, no. You are beautiful; more
beautiful than the almond flower!
Your eyes are stars, your mouth a rose,
your heart speaks—listen!”
And, listening, she heard and saw
with the eyes of her soul, and then
lie came, and with his coming life was
First, as the maid reported through
the chinks of the carved woodwork, he
burned Uls incense sticks and little red
papers before the great joss, his silken
robes clinging gracefully to his lithe
form the while, and then lie placed his
New Year's card, a long slip of red pa
per with his name in Chinese letters,
on the carved tatUe.
His devotions over, what more nat
ural than that lie, too, should repair
to the balcony to look dowu upon the
crowd? What more natural tiiau that
the little Ah I,eeu should drop her fan
at that precise moment? She really
did not mean to do it, but she was so
startled by the appearance of the one
upon wliotif she had showered her al
mond blossoms. He was not like any
one she had ever seen, lie was so
strong and handsome and young, not
hi tlie least like the vicious old Gum
Citing, the highbinder to whom her
father had promised her in marriage.
It was also quite natural that Ah
3oug should pick up the perfumed fan
and return it to the fair unknown with
a light pressure of the hand aud a
thrilling glance from ids dark eyes.*
Ah Suey might have been deaf, dting
and blind for aught one could notice to
the contrary. Like the well trained
little maid she was. she saw and heard
uothiiig. The two conversed e.s readily
as ;r they had known each other for
ever. and for a time Ah Leen forgot
that she was promised to old Gum
Oiling. She meant no harm. She was
only a young thing and Human, and
she had a tenf ;r. Innocent heart which
had never ” fore been touched. But
tonight she knew as she looked into
the eyes of this man that life would
never again he the same.
After hearing her sad story he men
ially registered a vow that she should
never \ved the highbinder.
They must meet again, but how and
Where? It was the deaf and dumb Ah
Suey who spoke at this moment and
tuggested the theater. The theater
all. yes! As this was only the first
night of the New Year she would be
allow ed her liberty for a week. A week
*f blUs was before her if only sb
could play wed her cards. Aud he did

that he did not thiuk to tell her he was
She and her maid leisurely took their
departure from the place, with a guilty
look at the je.ss as they passed, and
toddled along through the narrow,
blossom lined streets to their home.

him that she would remain only long
enough to be seeD at the theater, so
scon the two girls slipped out unno
ticed in the crowd nnd met Ah Gong
in a little dressing room back of the
stage. Passing on, down some narrow
steps, they found themselves winding
through tortuous underground corri
Ah Leen was completely mystified,
but she had no fear of anything except
separation from this wonderful being.
At last they slipped into one of flit
small compartments on either side of
the opium scented passageway, and
there, chaperoned by the little maid,
they enjoyed several hours of tiuinter-
Tupted Bliss. ' \
Ere they had parted they had agreed
to meet again the next night at the'
Josshouse. When the young Ah Gong
stepped out into the pure air, he felt
something pushed forcibly into his
hand. A horrible fear stole upon him.
He glanced quickly in every direction,
but could see no one who looked as if
he had done this thing. The Celestials
toddled along just the same, the almond
blossoms still retained their fragrance
and yet—this man had just received bis
death warrant. On the little slip of
red paper In ids trembling hand he
read: “You shall die like a dog; the
reason. Ah Leen.”
Knowing well that the highbinders
always kept their vows, ail hope died
“To dio,” lie groaned, “when she
lor es me! I must see Her! Perhaps we
can escape if we hasten!”
Ah I,eon had gone home another
way. He could not warn her.
“I will see her tomorrow night. Per
haps we can escape!”
Meanwhile Ah Leen was happy.
Again foil the night. Ah Leen was
first at the rendezvous, and the dutiful
Ah Suey was eagerly watching
through the chinks of the carved
“He comes! He comes! He Is fairer
than the sun! See! He kneels before
the joss! lie burns the iacense! He”—
Just then sudden darkness fell on
the place. They could, not understand.
They were afraid
It lasted only a moment. The tapers
were relighted, and before the trem
bling Ah Leen could realize what had
happened she- felt her tender little
body seized in the rough grasp of some
one and felt his hot breath on her
pretty face. With a scream of horror
she looked into the yellow face, and
then all hope died within hi r, for it
was Gum Cbiop, toe highbinder. Forc
ing her upon her tiny feet while Ah
Suey was made prisoner by one of his
accomplices, he brought her out into
the temple, saying:
“You mine now. I never let you go!
You go no more to meet Ah Gong!”
And then she beheld the brave and
handsome one, the one whose warm
lips had so lately clung to bora, lying
dead in the shadow of the joss.
