AnTttun'g not-t avowal his bitteu disai--
It was n moment of thrilling Intensity to the
breathless throng that watched below, 'J hey had
heard Arthur llochester's lolco crtlng out out
tlm hoarse rumbling of tho fulling stones:
" Courugo, lonie 1 I will savo you or perish with

lonie heard, and realized that help was at hand.
Fhe Mri'lchoi out her arms to hlinwllha piteous

In an Instant her heroic rescuer had rntscd her

Hleu by step Arthur ltochcsler undo hla way
down the swaying ataira with lilslowjy burden.
'I h slight failenlng which held them was strulued
to Pa tilinott tension, ami when the noble rrscur
hnd renclicd within twenty fictof the ground It
snapped asunder with a crush.
A c ry of horror rose from every throat; but In
that Instant, quick as Hash, Arthur hail made a
terrible Irup, and had staggered forward, laying
lonlo down, amidst mighty cheers, In her com
panions' arms. And at that moment tho great
wheel fell, but the noble rescuer and the lovely
girt he had periled his lifo for wcro safe.
Krank Lyons stood by, watching tho thrilling
scene with lowering brow.
"Itoeheaterlato tho foro again," he muttered
throngli uls clenched teeth; ami although ho wat
heartily thankful Hint beautiful lonle's lire hint
been aaved, hu turned awuy, bitterly chagrined to
know that Arthur ltochcsler had made himself the
hero of the tragic affair.
When lonie opened herryo', sho found herself
In her own apartment at Mrs. Gregory's, where stio
had been conveyed. ....
"Is It a dream:" sho cried, raising her dark,
curly head from tho pillow, nnd B.i7.!tig lu tetror

" It was real enough, poor child," replied Mrs.

"Hut who saved mef persisted lonio. us

" No, indeed," replied Mrs. flrczory. " It wat

Ionic turned away, uttering no word, thongh,
deep lu her heart she felt sadly disappointed to
think It was not Krank Lyons who had aaved
"Ho sent you a bouquet, however," contlnnoJ
Mrt. Orcgory, pi icing In her hands the flowers
Krank Lyons had left at tho door un hour before.
Ionic took the roc eagerly, ami as alto tinned
her fiico among thtm, she found nmong their
fragraut depths a nolo, which read as follows:

not help but note how her eyes brightened uud then
' You do not know how Jealona I am ot the man
who rescued you, Ionic," ho said, lu an agllated
voice. "The moment I taw your peril I darted
across the way to secure a rope and a ladder to
make tho deicent sure. Then I saw, when I
returned a moment later, that Itoehestor had

bringing yoa down those steps, Instead of waiting
for the ladder to be put up."
lonie gavo a great algh of relief. This was n
comforting insurance to her. and sho never
thought of doutdlng him when lie added "that hu

looking Into his fuce, tho girl bellut cd him.

"Tnls alfidr may end In n lovo scene and a

hu muttered, striding angrily un nnd down the
luxuriously furnished room. "Hut surely the boy

"No, no," ho muttered, under his breath.
"Arthur must marry Kliunc, my ward, whether

Arthur, proudly, "blio hai no wealth, savn a

A curious and amusing Incident occurred yester
day on Clay street hill, between Btockton and
1'owell ttrtcf. An elderly gentleman whose Alder
manlo girth and florid countenance bespoke a love
for the good thlogtof this life wat tolling slowly
nil the ascent. The day was rather warm and the
exertion canted tho old gentleman to perspire
freely. He had got at least a quarter ol a block np
tho hill when a Chinese appeared at the corner of
Prospect place wheeling one of Falrbank s patent
scales beforo him. Atlll-lttcV would have it, he
he had Juat rounded the corner, when he placed hit
foot on a banana peel, Blip- ed and fell to the earth,
letting the machine go ns ho fell. Tho so lies
starte d uown MIL Tho cldcrlv gentleman, stinled
by the rumbling nolae, looked nn and for a moment
wa paralyzed with terror. The machine was com
ing straight for him. Then hi- ttled to dodge It.
lie Jumped to tho ulae of tho sidewalk. The ma
chine Jumped too. Ho skipped to tno wall and so
did the scales. Hack he went, but his foe still
headed him off. lie Jumped and skipped and
panted and perspired, but never once tiiouptit of
getting off the sidewalk Into tne middle of tho
street. 'Iho machine wua almost upon hint. Ills
hat fell off. Iho few straggling hairs which orni
mettled Iho old gentleman's scalp stood straight up
and every poro ptoveil a fouulnin nf perspiration.
Nearer and nuircr enmo the machine. Hal ho
would run for It. Ilo turned, but a'ns! too late.
Tho deadly machine caught him aoottt tho ankles.
Up went his feel, and tho old gentleman mado tho
acquaintance a posteriori of the rnpldly-tnoving
scales. Down the hill they went together, thp old
Bcntleinau'a arms whirling llko a wlmMnm and
the wheels of the machine creaking out unearthly
sounds. Tobogganing w.is nothing to It. On
Btockton ttrcet crossing they came to a fall stop.
The old gentleman lumped to his feet unhurt nnd
glared around llercely. lie perceived the smiling
coiintenanco of the Innocent heathen, who ex
tended his hand with a amllo of ehlldllkcnlm
pllelty and Slid.
" Yon allco mine big Mellcnn man. My machine
nn maun wavce big man nllce name you. Him
blukeo two places. Huppoao you payee tno ten
dollu for mend him:"
"You scoundrel I" cried tho old gentleman,
purple tilth nigc. "How dure ou make such u
proposition: I'll sue vou for damages, sir, How
dure you let that machlno go: lly tflundor I"
The laal ejaculation was caused by the speaker
discovering that his IndlspcnauhlCB hail suffered
severely In tno recent toboggan rldo down hill,
and Unit several passers-bv. Including some young
ladles, could not tall to eibiervc his predicament.
" Orcat Caeaarl what shall I do:" he murmured.
"Mebbe Mellcati manulleo samo payee me ten
dollo," broke In the f'hln'sc, smiling blandly nt tho
victim's attempt to hide the state of affairs.
" I won't give you n cent, sirl"
" Mcllcan man no go homo like that. Officer
allrsthlm. Buppuio ou slto tno ten dollar, mo
go Mcllcan mau notno and bring pants. Y'ou nllco
same go In Chinaman's house. "
" Yon swlndllug'healhcii," yelled tho victim, na
he placed hla back Drinly against tho wall. " I'll
not give yon n cent. I'll huvo yon arrested.
At that moment a cir came over the hill loaded
with passengers. On the dummy sat the old gen
tlemun's wife and several friends. It would never
do to be seen lu such a sorry pllgnt.
"I suppose I must," he murmured. "Y'ou
hoathen, go to Lot kin street and glvo 'em this
nolo and I'll glvo you fj. "
" Five dollu too little. Heap too far. Mo go for
ten dolla," replied John.
1 he victim was obliged to give ln. Ho mado the
bargain and went Into tho Celestial's home He
waited thero until the Chinaman returned, when
he changed his nether garment and took the car
to his home. Inwardly vowing never to climb Clay
street hill again.

The Sonar Sarrd the Day.
fffeary in lh. VletmUr Osersry,
The article on ths "Bongs of tho War," by Mr.
Brander Matthews, In the Century Magazine for
August, brought back to my memory vividly an
experience at Mnrfreesboro', jnat after the battlo
of Stone's Hirer. Thero wsb a good deal of
gloomy feeling there. Tho losses in the army had
been terrible, and besides, there were among the
troops a large number of KontucVy aud Tennessee
regiments, to whom the Emancipation Proclama
tion waa not palatable. A number of offlcers had
resigned or tendered resignations on account ot It,
One day a whole batch of resignations came ln,
all written ln tho same handwriting and
coming from one regiment, Including nearly
all the officers In It, aaslgnlng aa a rea
son their unwillingness to serve longer In conse
quence of the chanie In the purpose and conduct
of the war. The Instigator of these letters waa
found, and dismissed with every mark of Ignominy
his shoulder-strips were cut off, nnd he was
drummed out of camp. This licrolo remedy
cuuaed the otllcers whom ho hud in slid to with
draw their resknatlonu; but Die thins rnuklod. A
few days afterwards a glee club came down from
Chicago, brloplng with them the new irong,
We'll rail round tbe flag, bora,
and It ran through the o imp like wIM.fjre. The
effect waa Ilttle short of miraculous. Itputsa
much spirit and cheer Into the army as a victory.
Day and night one could hear It by every, camp
fire and ln every tent. I ahall never forget now tne
men rolled out the line:
And althongb be mar be poor, be shall never be a alave.
I do not know whether Mr. Hoot knows what good
work hla song did for as there but I hope so.
