The Story of a Happy and Con-
She was an optimist. That is, she
herself and those who loveil her called
it optimism; other people, except that
there were no other people, for she
never permitted anyone not t« love
her. might perhaps have called it fickle-
ness. Hut, as she herself explained,
she was not fickle because she never
desired a change till the change came,
and then she simply found it interest-
So. when the times were hard, those
who knew her were not at all surprised
that she was glad they were living in
the city, even in the midst of the anxie-
ties around them; it was so niee to he
rich and able to help a hit. and it
would be so selfish to run away from
thesightand hearing of the general
suffering, to escapa into merely happy
sights and sounds to save one's own
nerves. And the same people were
equally not surprised, when, a little
later, it turned out that they were not
to be rich an}' more, and she answered
?alm?y that really one would he
quite ashamed not to be poor with
the rest; and as the first economy
that suggested itself was the great
saving in a country rent, it would
be so delightful to escape all the
misery and anxiety of the city and be
where only happy sounds assailed the
ear, and only lovely sights could tempt
serene thoughts. For they were going
to take the dearest, sweetest, most fas-
cinating little house —the chief recom-
mendation of which was its diamond-
paned windows — in a private park
owned by a friend of theirs, in a love-
ly village fifteen miles out of town.
Within these charmed gates they
would hear and see nothing but happy
children chasing squirrels or playing
tennis, and the carriages of friends
rolling luxuriously, sometimes with
themselves as guests in them, along
perfectly smoothed roads and under
exquisitely ■arching' trees. The optim-
ist loved extremes; she could be happy
either as Emerson's mountain or as
Emerson's squirrel; either as an ele-
phant or as a mouse; it was being a
mere hill, or a cat, that she disliked.
" If I'm not as big as you.
You are not so small as I,
And not half so spry."
Of houses, she preferred either a
palace or a very, very small cottage;
either the elegant or the picturesque.
The great middle-class, bourgeois,
comfortable, square house she ab-
horred. Their country house, it was
understood, was to be a cottage, vine-
embowered—not a colonial mansion.
She would like a big colonial door, cut
in two in the middle, but everything
else must be on the tiniest scale pos-
sible to please the present state of
mind of her majesty It was so nice,
she explained, that one of the draperies
to her immense city windows would
curtain eight of her new diamond-
paned ones; and she took no notice at
all of the friend who asked meekly if
that would not be inconvenient when
they came to move back again. Sure-
ly, it was quite understood that they
never meant to move back. When
she thought of the September sun-
shine, shilling through the leaves of
a big chestnut into the win-
dows on the little landing of the
tiny stairs in her country cottage,
the hall of which she had been so
proud in town seemed to her positively
murky. Then in the city they merely
lived on a park; out of town they were
to be in one; and everybody knows
how desirable it is to always be "in
it." They would now have real trees,
not city trees. And, besides, the boys
were going to be permanently and
preeminently happy with a dog, which
was so much better for them than the
questionable amusements which occa-
sionally distracted them in the city. It
was suggested that a dog might se-
riously interfere with the low tables
covered with bric-a-brac, which were
her personal passion; to which she re-
plied that she had been brought up in
a very fine school where girls were
trained to meet every emergency,
even so great a one as this would be.
She knew quite well what she must do
if Fido ever upset her pet Sevres and
Meissen; she was to say, calmly: "Oh,
Diamond, Diamond, thou little know-
est the mischief thou hast done!" and
then pick up the pieces and replace
with royal Worcester. The boys want-
ed a dog, and, moreover, a good watch
dog was almost essential in the coun-
try. besides, she preferred royal
Worcester to Sevres.
*'I am perfectly sure you are going
to like it, Mrs. Murray," said a sympa-
thizing friend. MI should be quite
,happy in the country myself, except
that 1 don't like sitting up with the
• Sitting up with the house nights?"
"Yes. Didn't I toll you my ex-
perience in the tropics once, sitting up
ail night with a garden? It seemed
such an ideal spot for sleep, hut the
very intensity of the silence, the ex-
treme quietness of the flowers com-
bined with their penetrating frag-
rance, and the absolute awfulness of
so much very white moonlight, kept
my nerves ajar far more than the tinkle
of horse cars and rumbling <>f milk
wagons over a city pavement."
"I remember; but we are not going
to be in the tropics. The stillness will
not be so still, or the moonlight so
whifte, just out in the country."
"No; the stillness will not be so still,
that is certain. One night it will be
katydids, and the next night a bur-
glar. and then again katydids, and
finally Hut 1 mustn't forestall your
experiences; you will soon find out."
And they did. The day of the Hit-
ting was an absolutely perfect one for
moving, according* to tin- optimist; not
too bright, you know, but just pleas-
antly overcast. I hey arrived just be-
fore nightfall, and even a pessimist
would have acknowledged a great
charm on the scene, with the pretty
littl«* house perched on a rock and
shadowed by big trees, and with gen-
tle grass and affectionate ferns and
mosses creeping up to the very door-
step. There was no awful front yard,
no obtrusive, exclusive, and selfish-'
looking fence; nothing but a lovely
little home, framed in serenity and f
nestling into peace. The vans with]
most of the furniture, including the j
beds, were not to arrive till the next
day; of course little could be done (
towards getting to rights that night, |
and at an early hour the family were j
disposed to retire. With no beds, sofas .
had been arranged in the least clut-i
tered rooms upstairs or down, and one j
who looked at the couch impro-
vised for his repose murmured that
getting to rights seemed to savor
a little of getting left. Hut what
fun, at least the first night, to go round
locking up! In their city apartment
they had been debarred from this in-
estimable privilege; on the sixth story
west they had been sufficiently guard-
ed by their perpendicularity, without
any keys at all, from the intrusive
burglar; but then, as the optimist re-
marked to the young lady of the fam-
ily, they had also been deprived of
any Homeo in the street below the bal-
cony, when the bacony hovered in mid-
air at ninety feet above the sidewalk.
When you did not have to lock up any-
thing it never seemed as if you had
anything to lock up; so now, at least
on the first night, each window fasten-
ing received a caressing little lock
and every door was bolted with a ten-
der firmness, which remembered not
so much the danger that was locked
out as the happiness that was locked
in. In the apartment, as the optimist
remarked, you were safe, but in the
country you felt safe; now, at last, your
happiness was securely fastened in.
So they retired, the family being re-
minded not to be frightened if Fido
barked in the night. Of course, he
would bark a little the first night;
dogs always did in a strange place, and
it would not mean burglars at all. So
they were not to be frightened. As
the friend had said of the garden « f
the tropics, it seemed an ideal place
for sleep; but. as lie had also prophe-
sied, there were katydids. For half
an hour after she lay down, the op-
timist was almost appalled at the
noises that assailed her unaccustomed
ear from the innocent looking scei«. ry.
Hut she dropped asleep at last, till she
was awakened by what seemed to be
the raining of bullets on the roof,
though it soon arranged itself to her
waking ear as rain, merely refreshing
rain. However, it might be raining in;
they had left a window open in the
hall, and the new wall-paper would be
spoiled. She rose cautiously, ami, as
she stepped into the hall, a door
banged. The wind was rising. Well,
she was rising, why shouldn't the wind
rise, too, if a door banged? And she
smiled, thinking she would remember
that little joke for the breakfast ta-
ble. A gentle scratching of a match
below stairs told her that her husband
had also heard the rain and the bang-
ing of the door. They met on the stair
landing, picturesquely arrayed in am-
ateur dressing gowns of shawls and
light rugs gracefully arranged as to-
"Do you think it was the kitchen
door?" she asked, timidly.
"1 should think it was a hundred
kitchen doors," he answered, decided-
ly. Hut he did not swear; the op-
timist was so glad of an opportunity
to test Henry's morals so severely. Of
course, he never had sworn in the city,
but there, of course, there was nothing
to make him want to swear; while
now, under the most trying circum-
stances, he had proved himself a gen-
tleman. They explored doors together,
but not one looked as if it could ever
have banged under any circumstances
whatever. 1'hen it occurred to them
that, of course, it had shut itself in
banging, and so would bang no more.
They were wending their way again
to their respective sofas, stopping at a
remote corner of the house to investi-
gate the raining-in capacity of another
window, when again a door banged.
■• What it that, father?" asked the
youngest, rising on his couch from an
I inner apartment.
"It is the wind, my child."
j No earl-king could have answered
with greater dignity; but the young-
i est wrapped the drapery of his couch
about him and arose from pleasant
dreams, to join the little procession
that was seeking the lost door. Again,
however, every door was dutifully
j shut, though again some door always
j out of sight banged its woe into th ir
i ears till they arrived upon the spot,
| when it became at once resigned and
; silent. It wasexasperati ng; but their
, city manners still remained intact
under fire, and the severest thing th
unswearing Henry said, was that May-
nard had warned him of having to sit
up with trte house nights, but he never
supposed he should have to walk with
it. When at last they had traversed
several miles in their process of in-
vestigating from one end of the house
to the other, they came to the eonclu- '
ston that no one door ha<^ Hinged, but
that all had merely creaked slightly. ,
As the optimist decided that this I
alleviated the situation, they resolved 1
to retire once more.
The night was not an entirely happ\
one; but one person, as Henry re-
marked at the breakfast table, hail
managed to sleep through it all; that
wa- Fido. the watchdog.
"W.iy, of course," said the optimist,
calmly. "That shows how discrimi- ;
nating he is; he knew we were not
burglars;" and the logic was so agree-
able, that as lie didn't wake when they
were not burglars, of course he would
wake when they were, that it was
unanimously accepted as so.
In the morning the cellar was found
to he but then, what matter it
about the cellar? People did not live
in the cellar: and the critic who re-
marked that sometimes, however, they
died of one was severely snubbed.
In the morning the real fun began.
As the optimist remarked, background
is everything, and it w as so interesting
to try all the old things in new places.
It was a very little house, but the op-
timist did not notice that the ceilings
were low; sin* merely looked up at a
taller husband than usual, and re-
marked, fondly: "There are giants in
these days!" Kvery part of the house
was voted fascinating; but, as usual,
the cream rose to the top, and the
finest thing of the whole was a "den"
in the garret, in the shape of a tiny
tower, with fifteen tiny square win-
dows. The furnishing of this den,
where she meant to draw and paint,
write sonnets, compose music, loll and
read and gossip, became a frenzy with
tlie optimist. She herself regarded it
as a "den," but it was known to the
family as tin* "vent." In it were
gathered now all those bewildering
knickknacks which the optimist had
previously insisted on lavishing in
< very room below stairs, to the distress
f a family well "up" in modern
esthetics, and approving of the sever-
ity and genuineness of a few "really
good" things. The optimist never
cared whether a thing was "really"
good, or expensive, or choice, if only
it were pretty and effective. And now
she had one place where the mere pret
t iness, so offensive to the rest of the
family, could be stored in one spot;
ami it must be confessed, in spite ol
the incongruities and lack of respect
for dramatic unity that the "den' ex-
hibited. it became a very attractive
place. She became jealous for it U.
possess the choicest of everything,
and when the family, who in this were
certainly inconsistent, objected that
the parlor was beginning to look verj
bare, sin- reminded them:
"You have always laughed at people
who bringthingsout of the garret inU
the parlor, spinning wheels, and oh;
candlesticks and broken furniture
very well, I am doing just the oppo
site, and carrying things out o£ tin
parlor into the garret. You are cer
tainly very hard to please."
It was soon discovered that the opti
mist would permit no allusions to the
locality of their former abode which
characterized it as "home " "This
home," she would say, severely: and
when Tom remarked: "Hut. mamma
you arc fickle, you used to be very fond
of the other place," she replied con
vineingly: "It is very much better U
be tickle than to be homesick." There-
after Tom amused himself with trying
to find out exactly how much indiffer
ence to the old home she would toler-
ate. lie found that she drew the line a)
the "old house:" they could call it "tin
other house." she exclaimed as a grace
fill compromise between faithfulness
to the old and appreciation of the new
Hut they thought that, in the language
of the day. they "had" her, whet

name to the butcher and grocer as
•'Mrs. A. It. Murray, 1T0 West" be
fore a shout of amusement reminder
her that she no longer dwelt in a streej
and a number, but in a den full o>
things without number.
And again they thought they "had
her." when she was lound papering
the de i with remnants of wall paper:
they had had in the city. "Oh, mam
ma! how did you happen to brim
those from the other house, if it wa
not for old associations?"
"Why. 1 thought it was a pity tc
waste theni," she explained.
"Hut there are lots of remnants heri
of these wall papers," remarked tin
"Oh. those belong to the landlord!"
And yet. w hen her husband found
she had deigned to use one very pretty
remnant of wall paper, a la tiles,
around an amateur mantel, and won-
dered whether she ought not to have
consulted the landlord on using up the
very last of it, she explained, without
"1 didn't ask him. 'because 1 was
afraid if I did he wouldn't let inc."
And she added, after a pause: "He-
sides, there was just enough of it."
Hut there did come a day when the
last bit of bric-a-brac had been de-
posited in the den, and when the
optimist, putting on her hat f nd
drawing on an old pair of gloves, an-
nounced: "It is all done. That is, all
except the cleaning. The decorating
is done, and the cleaning can wait.
I'm going out now to make the beds."
"IKm't you think, my dear," said her
I husband, gently, but firmly, "that if
we eat. and talk, and walk, and ad-
| mire, out of doors, we might at least
! sleep indoors, especially as winter is

Henry." she remarked, as she took the
i hoc and descended upon the lawn.
And then came golden days of sun-
! shine, and changing maples, and
; golden rod, and asters, and brilliant
| sunsets, and crimson sumac, and ripe
nuts, and open tires. It was no won-
der that the optimist proved a
prophesier of the truth, and that be-
fore two months were over, when
their friends inquired if they were n-.it
going to move back, the unanimous
and invariable reply was: "Certainly
not: we have at last found a place
where we can live, and not move, but
have our being."— N. Y. Independent.
IMPROVEMENT IN HORSES'.
Tin- Horse From the Ilnvn of the Turlori
IfilH I IK'I'CH M'-l I ill Si Zl>.
1 he improvement obtained f< r horses
during the past three hundred years
can readily l>e understood by anyone
who will recognize tacts. When ( barley
II. ascended the throne the native-bred
Lnglish race-horse was easily beaten
by the imported eastern horses. These,
when mated with Hritish stock, with
the smatl pony and the great horse,
gave to t'leir offspring improved form
and qualificat ions. This improved
breed, when mixed inter se. produced a
still better class of animal, to which
the Darley and (iodolphin Arabian?
gave those excellent impressions which
have resulted in the ultimate develop-
ment of the Knglish thoroughbred.
I roin the days of the Tudors to the
present the race-horse has increased in
size, and this lias been caused by cross-
ing and judicious selection of parents.
The late Admiral Rous thought dif-
ferently, namely, that the Knglish
thoroughbred was a pure eastern ex-
otic: that he was a lineal descend a nt of
the Arab, "w ithout a single drop of
Lnglish blood in his veins," and, al-
though he pointed out how the racer
had gradually, from century to cen-
tury. increased in height, lie attributed
this development to the effects of our
"damp, foggy climate." combined with
'good pasture and judicious manage-
ment. He has increased in size.strength
and vigor in these damp, foggy little
It climate and good pasture caused
all the improvement w hich the admiral
admits did occur, how is it that, ante
cedent to Charles I L's day. the small
horses did not increase in size? The
climate and pasture played the same
part then as tliey are said to have done
lately on. and surely the Tudors would
not have enacted laws for the slaugh-
ter of small horses and "unlikely
tits." if they had recognized that
good pastures and a humid atmosphere
would have produced greater size. The
truth is that the ln>rsesof England at
this period had degenerated, perhaps
tin- result of in-breeding, and worth-
less progeny had become too common,
an evil which it only needed a fresh
cross of good blood to remedy; this wa?
obtained from various sources,but prin-
cipally from the eastern importations.
Kvery physiologist knows how some-
times in a cross, when two a nimals are
mated, their offspring will attain
greater size, strength and vigor than
either parent, and this will take place
even if the colt, during the early peri
ods of its existence, is subjected to in
different management, and is not fed
from the best pastures. Uich pastures
and a moist climate may play an im-
portant part in causing improvement*
in our domestic breeds of animals tc
remain permanent, but it never has
produced nor could produce size, unless
the materials for its creation have been
in existence.- Nineteenth Century.
A curious incident is related as talc-
ing place in a well-known church re-
cently. A wedding was being solemn-
ized, the contracting parties being a
lady and gentleman who move in the
fashionable circles of society, while in
the corner of the church stood a youth-
ful couple, a mulatto boy and girl. The
pair watched the ceremony intently,
and copied each movement made by the
bride ami bridegroom whom the priest
was making man and wife. As they
knelt down, so did the other couple
kneel, and when the bridegroom placed
the ring on the bride's finger thcyoung
mulatto did likewise, only his ring was
of metal and his bride was less fair.
At lengt h. when t he procession emerged
from the church, the humble double
followed, looking as if they were quite
as much married as their more fortu-
nate brethren. It transpired that such
was, indeed, their belief. They had no
money wherewith to pay the priest or
the fees, so they thought a marriage at
second hand would be just as effective
and cost nothing. Philadelphia Times.

When you have strained you plain
boiled potatoes, take them at once to
