THE f ALMIGHTY .DOLLAR
Au UnglUhman's Opinion uf Its Worship la
the I'nlted (State.
I think, whatovor, bo said of tho wor
ship of tho almighty dollar in America,
it is Indubitaule that rich men ate re
garded thero with loss envy and hatred
than rich men nro In Kuropo. Why Is
this? llcoauso their condition Is less
!lcd, boonuso government and legisla
tion dq uot take them more seriously'
than other people, make grandees of
thorn, aid them to found families and
endure. With us the chief holders o
property nro grandees already, and
overy noh man aspires to become a
grandeo if possible. And, therefore,
on Kncllsh country gontlcmnn regards
himself as part of the system of na
ture; government nnd legislation have
Invited, him to dp so. jftho price of

American would says "Why should
he?" Tho Conservative newspapers
aro fond of giving us, an an argument
for tho game laws, tho plot that with
out them a country gontleman could
not bo Induced to livo on his estate.
An American would says "What does
It mattor?" Perhaps to an English ear
this will sound brut-J; fc;-.; tha point Is
that the Amerin docs not take his
rich man so seriously us wo do Qurs,
does not raako him Into a grandee; tho
thing, If proposed to him, would striko
him as an absurdity. I suspect that
Mr, Winans himself, tho American mil
lionaire, who adds deer forest to deei
forest. And will not sufibr a cotter to
keep a pet lamb, regards hU own per
formance as a colossal stroko nf Ameri
can humor, Illustrating tho absurdities
of tho flrlUsh system of property and
privilege. Ask Mr. Winans if he would
promote the Introduction of tbe British
gamo laws into tho United States and
he would toll yo-i with a morry laugh
that tho idea Is ridiculous, and that
these British follies are for home con-sumption.-Ualthtw

THE BELL OF SAN MARCO.
A Wild Tnlo of n Strnnffo Span
I tell you tho following dory an It
ivar tiltl mo bv a Sjinnbjh Jady not long

this ago of gentler and moro humane
principle, it I s ncvenhelois true, and

HibL 1 fool obliged to concoal tho real

Hard by tho beautiful old church of
San Marco there dwelt, nt tho beginning
of this century, and, honest bricklayer,
Marco Gomez by naran. Ho was poor,
uxccptlng In an upright and sunny dis
position, over ready to share what he
had of this world's goods wlta his
neighbor, and day after day contentedly
eating his ga.ipae.ho and pra'slng Clod
nnd his patron 'flint for their manifold
incrcios to him, a poar sinner a guile
loss, happy nature, such as ono often,
and porhaps only, finds among tho
lower classes In Spain.
Ono sultry morning In May, Marco
war awakened by a sharp knocking at
tho doorof his tile-roofed cabana, and
hastening to answer tho summons ho
started at tho appearance of twotmsked
men, who told him hurriedly, in courto
ous, though ncrcmutory tones, thut
they desired his scrriccs In demolishing
and rebuilding a brick wall, and bade
hlra take tho necessary Implements.
Having thon blindfolded him, thoy led
him to a carriago stationed a few yards
oft Tho carriago set forth nt first slow
ly, and gradually nt a brisker pace.
Marco had by this tlmo partially recov
ered his equanimity, nnd tho promise of
a nmuncraL'on, which to him sounded
like unbounded wealth, further tended
lo restore his courage.
"Ah." thought he, "I am to aid In
concealing a treasnro jwrhaps bag-t of
precious stones thoy say such things
aro often done. Well, what care I for
precious stones? shall bo rich, and
Maria la Gltanilla shall have a bright,
new pair of oar-ribgs to sport at tho
fair." Thus buried In his pleasing re
flections, Marco hanllrtaqticcd how far
thoy hud dritrn. Very fur, though, for
It was fully half an hour since they had
left tho cabana. At length tho carriage
drow up, and ho was helped out by his
mysterious companions nnd led Into
what ho though must bo a patio, for in
tno siioncn ne r-nnui.iu-uirx .,
a fountain, and tho air was laden with
tno iraganca of orango blossoms. How
camo It that to Marco's fancy the gentle
rlpplo and low murmur of that fountain
wero as tho weeping and wailing of ono,
In soro distress? Ho followed his
guides blindly across tho patio, through
a masslvu gateway which clanked
heavily behind tbom, up a staircase, and
at last he was allowed to uncover his
Thoy are In a largo squnre room,
destitute of furnltnre nnd but dimly
lighted bj nn oil lamp standing on the
floor in the comer, lly this imperfect
light Marco Is ablo to noto tho dress
and carriage of h-s companions cabal
leros undoubtedly perhaps nobles of
high degree. Ono of those camo for
ward, while the other left tho room,
and drawing a line on tho bare whito
wall, showed him where ho was to toar
It down. Marco went cheerfully to
work, and, in spite of Its gre-t thick
ness, in less than halt an hour he had
opened a spaco about flvo feet square,
according to instructions. Albeit a
httlo surprised at tho slzo of tho open
ing, Marco suspected nothing undl tho
door opened to admit tho man who had
previously left tho room, but not alone,
for this tlmo ho half carried, half
dragged a young girl, clothed in black
and so closoly veiled that her features
were scarcely discernible. Tho poor
girl was but half conscious; undoubtedly
sho had boon heaiily drugged, but
nevertheless sho made somo faint resist
ance, Tho men strovo to smothor her
moans ouo holding her fast while tbo
othor covered hor mouth with his hand
and thus, with many ffmuttored oath,
thoy thrust her into the spaco just
opened. Tho holpless victim fell back
apparently lifeless. Tho petrified spec
tator of this cruel scone was roused by
a threatening voice, commanding him
to rebuild the wall. Tho wrotchod man,
frozen with horror, fell upon his knees
and implored morcy mercy for him
solf and tho poor girl. In vain. Their
hearts were callous they know no
rucroy. liaising him roughly from tho
floor, the two mon forced him to bejrin
his terriblo task.
"Oh, genors, for the lovo of God. kill
me, but spare mo this terriblo crimol
Havo pity If not upon me. upon her!"
"Fool! do you not see sho Is dead ?
Do you wish to join hor?"
llut why prolongtth!s frightful scene?
Tho devilish work waa accomplished,
and tho hapless victim of man's inhu
manity consigned to a'livlng tomb. Llko
ono in a dream, Marco submitted to bo
onco more blindfolded and led down to
tho court-yard; but hark! What was
that? The boll of San Marco striking
one! Yes, there was no ralstaku; it
was the familiar sound Marotf had
loarnod to lovo tho great bourboll of
San Marco. Was ho dreaming? Hero,
so far from his houso and yot It rang
out clear and loud and near rang out
hope; ind tho poor bricklayer could
icaroo restrain a cry of joy. Ah! San
Marco had heard his agonized prayer
In tbe fatal chamber a bo vo his patron,
had heard and answered!
All night long Marco paces his Httlo
room; no rest for him tulght: ho must
not sleep sleep might bring forgetful
ncss. He must remember . . . remem
ber .. . Ah! what I this strango dlzzl

In vain, thoy must nectls give up In de.'

llriuiri, tended by his falthfdl nleco,
Maria la Gltanilla, who sits by his sldo
listening to his Incessant ravings, and
froth tlmo to time moistening his
parched nnd feverish lips. Nota word
tloes ho say of tho event In which ho has
lust but played to Important a part.
Has ho fonrottcn?
Midnljfhtl Suddenly Marco Is silent.
the ravings cease. Ho rises from his
couch, and, with firm step and set face,
crosses tho threshold of tho door.
Maria follows; there is a look In his
cics which prevents her from trying to
hold him back. Sho can but follow
tremblingly, nnxlotuly. As ii Impelled
by some Irresistible force, Marco goos
swiftly forward, past tho cliim-h, and
down a by-street, nntll ona of tho
principal thoroughfares Is reached. Ho
pause before' n magnificent houso Ol
Moorish architecture; tho masslro
oaken door is wjar. Marco pushes It
gently open, ami they fled themselves
In a yiafio. A beautiful fountain plays
softly in tho center, surrounded by
blossoming orango trees. The huge
Iron curiccfas, or gntM, lead ' to the dif.
fctciit parts of tho mansion. The dell

Muttering to himself, Marco goes
straight to tho pilddie gate, and strives
vainly with eager and trembling hands

Marco shudders; his hands drop pow

"Mr.tia she Is there nbovol1' And
ho falls heavily forward.
Tho rest of tho story is shrouded In

gavo up their dread secret or not was
novcr known. Tho family to whom vho

Tho groat heiress of this X ?s died

cat and generally several.
Tho lion and hostess began to look
dubious when tho tenth guest arrived.
On the fifteenth arrival they began to
wonder which would eat most, tho

they meditated killing somo of tho cats
to feed tho ether rats. On tho twentieth
