A COQUETTE'S HEART.
When Ocorgo Winter foil holplcssy In

" ''their heads nnd fissured each othor that

Jlello was tho most nrrniit conuetto in

Mm that siuco ho would not beliuvo nny
of tho stories current about 3Hss Gray
that ho should put her affection to tho
test. After sotno hesitation liu agreed to
tho following plan:
Ho wns to pretend that ho had lost nil
his money and in her answer ho would
know whether sho was sincere or really
They wero out rowing on tho lako ono
day togethor when ho thought of putting
her to tho tc3t.
Hello Gmy wns In a pleasant and joyous
mood, but sho could not help observing
tbo pcnslvu bearing of her companion.
Bbo asked him what was tbo matter.
"Oh, nothing!" nnd plied hla oars in
When they went out on tho bosom of
tho lake ho losted nnd uttered a sigh.
"Gcorgo," who said, "there is some
thing thu matter. Tell me whnt it Is."
Georgo was silent a momunt.
"Won't you conlldo in mo?" sho
"Yes, Hello," ho replied, while his
voico trembled with real emotion, "It is
perhaps to you I should first communi
cate my misfortune."
"illsfortuncl" sho echoed.
"Yes. Not that I caro so much for tho
misfortune, but tho consequences it must
pntail tho loss of you."
Tho moon wns shining on her beauti
ful face, and Gcoigo could not fall to see
that It turned very pale.
"Belle, continued Gccrgo, with much
emotion, "1 have just received sad news
from tho city. I havo been possessed of
n. considerable amount of wealth, left mo
by my father, and for somo time I havo
left it all in tbo hands of a legal friend
of mine in tbo city. Ho lias been unfor
lunato in investing it, lias lost it all, has
failed himself, and tills night I am not
Worth n dollar I am n beggar."
"But, George, you"
Sho was very pale, and lmr volco
"Of courso," Georgo continued, "I
could not thiuk of dragging you down to
poverty with mo. . 1 had hoped, as
things wero, that tbero would bo no ob
stacle to our happlnoss; that wo might go
through lifo so joyfully together; novor
to bo separated on this side of tho gravo;
but now "
"And nro you really so poor as you
say? " sho asked, in a strango voico.
"Yes, yes; I could not bo poorer."
"But may your foituno not bo saved
yet, or somo portion of it?"
"Thero is not tbo slightest hopo," ho
"And yotJ naturally think,", sho went
on with strango calmness, "that it would
bo best for us to forget our pledges and
pursue our ways separately?'1
"Yes for your sake," ho replied; then
mentally added: "Oh, heaven, it is true!
Sho is ready to give mo upl"
"And you nro not worth a dollar?"
Elio again asked with a singular tono and
"Not n dollar!"
Her plump arms wore about his neck
In a moment, and sho actunlly kissed
lilm not meroly once, but flvo or six
times, and then a number of times after
that, which could not conveniently have
"George "Winter," sho whispered,
"could you think mo so lost to principle
ns to bo ready to renounce, you in your
adversity ? You do not know what a
truo woman's heart is. I would not part
with you for tho world now. I nin
heartily glad you nro poor. I havo

your heart correctly this night, and I

God knowB I nover yot brought pain to

know you havu not lightly told mo so
novor think of your lost fortuno again."
And two months later Hello Gray, tho
coquette, mnrilcd tho man whom slio
still beliovcd to bo ponnilcss, and not

To tho ltclgn of Henry II. belongs
tho llfo of our popular Kugllsh ballad
hero, llobln Hood, who was born nt
Locksley, in the County of Nottingham,
about tho year 1100. Ho was of noble
birth, and his truo naino was Hobert
Fltzoolh, said to havo been corrupted
into Itobin Hood. Somo German- critics
treat him ns a nnttiro myth, and ilnd in
tho sanio Itobin a form of "Woden.
For us let him bo Hobert. Ho may
havo had, In tho latter part of his lifo nt
least, somo right to his lcputcd dignity
of Earl of Huntington. Forfeiture of

that if ho saw any stout fellow whom ho

strength. His forest domain was usually
at llarnsdalc, In Yorkshire, or in Slier

painted llobln Hood as lit tho rough way
of a rough tlmo a religious outlaw. Friar
Tuck was added to his company that ho
might not neglect tho duties of religion,
and thero Is a story told by Scottisli For

death, If not In his lifetime, and a part
of tho very earliest Hobln Hood lltera

THE COUNTY DKMUcTtAOY.

"" Abolit IU l'rnlialito rutiiro,
Tho question which Now York poli
ticians nro asking each other now is,
says tho New York correspondent of tho
Baltimoro American, what will becomo
of tho County Democracy ns a political
linll i In past oleetions it was a power,
dividing tho spoils about equally with
Tammany, and almost rivalling in num
bers tho older organization controlled by
Richard Crocker. Two ycors ago Hew
itt, its candidate for Mayor, was elected
In a triangular light. "While tho Mayor,
it is true, was indorsed by Tammany
Hall, it was the County Democracy that
named tho Union candidate; and con
trolled about tho lion's share of tho
pntronago of that important olllco two
years before Mayor Grace, who was
identified ratlior with tho Couutics than
with Tammany, won tho election, and
tho younger hall had control of many of
With its increasing power it grow in
solent. Under tho leadership of Maurice
J. Power, a selfish politician, tho County
Democracy began to grow in disfavor.
Prominent men loft tho body to nssoclato
themselves with nn ovon moro corrupt
organization, and just before tho last
election tlio shrewder politicians saw tlio
bccinnlng of Its downfall. Its rival took
advantage of its apparent weakness and
named a candidate for mayor, while tho
counties jelled on Ilowitt to restore them
to power. As is well known now, Mr.
Howitt, although ho received some sup
port from tho Republicans, failed igno
mlniously. Ho was third in tlio rnco,
whllo ovcry Tammany candidate wns
olected, giving to thnt hall a dangorous
amount of power for tho noxt two years.
Tho County Democracy aro completely
shut out, ami now being without offices
may not bo able to hold itself together
for another election. It may soon follow
tho lato Irving Hall and other political
bodies that have gono out of fashion with
a loss of power. It is doubtful, indeed,
if It can exist without oillccs, nnd with
tho most tyrannical an autocratic leader
ship, and there will bo vory fow honest
citizens to weop over its dead body.
Tho power of Tammany seems to in
suro ilsnxlstencofor a long tlmo to como,
and perhaps n contlnunnco of its former
record, it is a matter oi surprise to
many pcoplo, wno ncqulro n rcsidenco in

"Ono who has settled tho question"
writes ns follows in the Pall Mnll Ga

habits of tho tiger, and especially tho
modo in which It kills and cats its proy.
Fotno think ho seizes by tliotlnoat, others
by tho napo of tlio neck from nbovo. Mr.
Inverarity has examined scores of slain
animals with special refcrenco to tills

In tlio samo wnv. 11 is only by accident,
if nt nil, that tlgcrsi in killing Bcvcr nny
importnnt vein or nrtory, nnd no blood
to speak of llowsfrbm tlio throat wounds.
Having killed, tho tlgor almost Invaria
bly begins eating a hlndquaiter. consum
ing ono or probably both. Animals are
novor eaten where they nro killed, but
aro always dragged a shoit distance.
They aro not lifted, clear of the ground,
but dragged. Having gorged himself,
tlio tiger sometimes lies ctoso to his prey,
but if It Is hot weather and thero aro
hills in tlio neighborhood, lin will go a
Jong distnnco oil boforo resting for tho
day. He returns noxt night and finishes
what is left, but ho never cats a second
tlmo on tho samo Hliot, dragging tho re
mains of tlio prey forty or flftyynrds off.
Tho Hirer titkea about two hours' steady
eating to finish tho forcqunrtcrs of a
bullock. Tigers nro cannibals; they will
make their meals oil each other. They
aro supposed to kill onco In tlvo or six
days, and, no doubt, the tiger, after n
heavy feed, does not earn to hunt much
for a fow days, but a tiger kills when
ever ho can, They have been known to
kill on fourteen consecutive nights, Mr.
Inverarity believes thnt animals killed
by tigers suffer llttlo beyond tlio panic of
n few seconds. Tho shock produces a
stupor and dreaminess lu which thero is
jio sense of pain or feeling of terror.
Tho powerful stroke of tlio foia paw
of tho tiger Is a fiction; lie clutches with
his claws ns ono might with tho fingers,
but does not strike a blow. Tlgors
wander immense distances nt night, nnd,
ns tboy Hko easy going, tboy go on paths
and roads. Tboy do not liko to movo
durlm; tho heat of tlio day, ns tlio hot
ground burns their pads and makes them
raw. They can on occasion climb trees.
In Balsctto ono climbed after a certain
1'audoo, but could not reach lilm and
retired. Tho Pandoo, thinking tho
coast clear, got down and ran toward
home, but on tho way was caught by

tiger eating him; there was no other
cnuso of death. Nothing was left except
somo flngors, which probably belonged
to the right or left hand." Natives havo
