WON BY A KISS.
"Is she dead, doctor, or has she
Without answering the question of
the frightened groom, "Doctor" Hugh
Liscome bent down above the prostrate
form upon the grass, and placed his hand
over her heart, while his own was throb
Presently the look of terror faded
front his taec, and glancing up, he said:
"Her heart is beating regularly. She
is not dead, nor do I think she is injur
ed seriously. Perhaps, however, you
had better get a carriage, for she may
lie iiiianle 10 reach the hall, liy walk
ing." The groom hurried away, and Dr.
Liscome resumed his examination.
Pretty soon lie uttered an exclamation,
as he discovered a dislocated wrist.
"It's too bad," he muttered.
He was a very young man for a doc
tor, and it was no wonder he was deeply
moved, ' lor Jlabel King wood, the
daughter of him of the hull, was very
beautiful. Hugh Liscome thought he
could gaze on such loveliness torever,
without tiring of the employment.
After a while he stooped and kissed
her. Almost immediatly she opened her
eyes. lie shrunk back appalled, but
the look of anguish upon her face, and
the whiteness about her lips, recalled
him to himself.
"Where am I and what has happen
ed?" she feebly asked.
"Your horse ran away, Miss King
wood. You were finally thrown to Hie
ground, and 1 think your wrist is dislo
cated." "Ah, yes, I remember. Sul'.ana got
scared at the curs, audi tried to slop
her. In the ineele 1 was thrown to the
ground, but wire you not hurt, Dr.
"U, notiiing to speak of. The horse
came down on my boot once, but it is
'Vina you risked your life to save me?
iiow can 1 ever thank you euough!"
Mable exclaimed gratel ully.
"Jiy never speaking ol the matter
again. It was merely an uct of duty,
aud ua it was you, u pleasure, a' orget it,
"Can )ou set my wrist," she detnuded,
changing the subject.
"1 en ii )ii wish; but the pain will
be terrible during the operation.
"It will nave to be bet sometime, will
"Ami the pain will be no greater now
than at anoiner lime, lou may set it
now if you pie ise." Aud closing Her
pe.:rly teeth tightly togetticr, Aiuuel
w aited in silence.
Twice Hugh lelt along her wrist be
loielio could gain requisite courage,
but at lut he compressed his hugeis,
and the joint sprang into its place with
"Did it hurt you very severely?" he
asked, when it was over.
but she did not open her eyes or an
swer, and he thought that slie bad taint
ed again, lie could not resist tue in
clination to give her auotuer kiss, ibe
color flowed into her ciieensat once, and
she opened her eyes rather suddenly.
"Was that in lieu ot- the usual lee"
she questioned, rather miscliievously.
Fortunately the carriage trotn the hall
arrived at this particular juncture, wan
old Air. Uingwood halt inglileiied to
death by the groom.
On learning the exact stale of the
case, he protiercd the doctor a hundred
"I cannot accept that," said Hugh,
"My professional tee for setting Auss
Kiugwood'e wrist is only hve dollars.'
'That or nothing," roared old Air.
Itingwood, excitedly." "iou saved
her lite, and it you do not take tne
hundred I'll bo your mortal enemy."
but the doctor drew back and sprang
into his carriage with as much agility as
his two hundred pounds would permit;
the old gentleman gave orders to drive
oft". Ami Hugh went home to dream ot
Mabel's blue eyes.
Old Mr. Itingwood got over his huff
in the morning, und belore noon he had
summoned his daughter's preserver to
dine at the hall.
"Excuse me, doctor," he heartily said,
"lor my thoughtless buorishness in ask
ing you to take the money lor such an
inestimable service. Iliad classed you
with the common herd of Immunity, but
1 see you tire possessed of a ditteiviit
spirit. And you would have done the
same had it been a poor girl instead of
the lady of Itingwood. That is tne
spirit I like to see. Dr. Hugh. I honor
you forit.w; ';, -
He 8oke so earnestly . that Hugh
was charmed, aud when the solicitations
of Mabel had beeu' added to his, the
young man agreed to become a frequent
visitor there. " i-.t . .;.t.;ii t
And a frequent visitor he soon became.
And not only a visitor, but a most wl
coiue one, as was evidenced by the color
that dawned on Mabel's beautiful cheek
at his approach, and the constant smile
by whuh her father greeted him.i ' Al
together, everything appeared iu a rose
ate light, and he was congratulating
hiuieii tLat bis prosDocta were greatly
improving, when all of a sudden he
found that he loved Mabel.
Then the silly young man, afraid of
the wealth of the King wood, allowed
concealment to prey noon his frame, and
grew as thin as a shadow.
After a time ho ceased to. visit his
friends, and Mabel grew as thin as a
shadow, too. 5ut the doctor, whose
practice had grown extensive, drove by
each day, like Jehu the son of Ximsht,
and never even looked towards the
And Mabel would sit by the window
and cry. but when her'father would
ask her what troubled her she would
not tell him.
Old Mr. bingwood was sorely troub
led. He liked the doctor, and wonder
ed what ailed hitn, nnd why he stayed
away so perseveringly. And he loved
Mable, and wondered why she was
growing so terribly pule and thin, but

A gambler recently arrived in Chica

European Hotel us E. Gotier, of Me A'
loi k. ills vocation was not known to
the proprietor of the house. On the
same day, and by the train, a gentle
man arrived from Milwaukee, wito put
up at the Sherman House. Hu also reg
istered as hailing from New York. It
has since been learned that Gotier had
met the gen leiuan iu Milwaukee, and
hud discovered that he had a large
amount of money with him, and hud en
ticed him into a faro bank there, where
he had beut him out of $1,000. The
gentleman who had beeu victimized was
induced to keep the matter still, through
fear that if given to the police of Mil
waukee, his own name would be made
public, ihe next day alter his loss, he
lett tor Chicago. Gotier had "piped"
him, to use a gambler's expression, und
arrived in tins city, as before re
marked, on the same truiu witJi his vic

was to secure a large amount of money,
ot which he knew him to be possessed.
He succeeded in currying out his plans

the assistance of another g.imblcr, w ho

The latter person found out where the
object ot tlieir intrigues hud put up, and
lor b with set about to get him mto las

to do this. He did it by ulso stopping
at the Shurman, and .making the
acquaintance ot the victim at the dinner-
table, lie met inui whenever an op
portunity presented itself, ,.ud tin.uiv
told him that he Knew how lie hud oceii

To this arrangement' the gentleman as
sented, after some hesitation. The
game was played iu Kuhns' Hotel. It
was a game of taro, and the result of it
as might be anticipated, that gentleman
who had been the loser of $l,uo0 in Mil
waukee lost not far from (10,000 iu the
second game. When it closed he was

where it had been kept, very quiet, the
officials declaring they knew nothing of

number, that they do. Gotier' bag

possibility that they may yet be caught.
What do we know about things ten
miles down in the stupendous vallevs
of the ocean? On land, here, the veget
ation of the Alpine base is not that of
its summit; the wild-gout skip upon the
peaks of the Himalayas, but the rhinoc
eros has his lair miles below. Our ac
quaintance with the mysteries of the
deep must be absolutely aud literally
superficial, for we may" assume that its
mountain tops alone are revealed to us,
and these dimly; and that to its vallevs
our senses can never penetrate. All the
creatures that disport themselves on or
near its surface are more or loss fainil

broods that feed on its shallow banks,
and are taken therefrom to feed shallow

we grasp them. On the ledge of the
iceberg sits enthroned, the w alrus, and
we salute him as the elephant of the sea,
and esteem him unspeakably for the
commercial value of his ivory tusks.
The huge sea cow has no mys'tcry for
us. We wake the harmless eieuture up
from its bed of seaweed on the isolated

no human being can ever explore the
strange grottoes into which the hideous
man-eater glides with his prey. The
great fishes and sea beasts that are
known to us may be creatures of the up

certain depth, lest they encounter far
more hideous ami powerful monsters
than themselves, which dwell at the
bases of the the marine mountains

imagine a polypus anchored there be

Enthusiasm Necessary to Success.
There was never, probably, a time in
the world's history when high success
in any profession demanded harder or
more incessant labor than now. Men
can no longer go at one leap into emi
nent position. The world, as Emerson
says, is no longer clay, but rather irou
the hands ot its workers, nud men
have got to hummer out a place for
themselves by steady ami rugged blows.
Above all, a deep and burning enthusi
asm is wanted iu every one who would
achieve great ends. No great thing is,
or can be, done without it. It is a
quality that is seen wherever there are
earnest and determined workeis iu the
silence of the study and amid the roar
of cannon, iu the painting of a picture,
and in the carving of a statue. Ability,
learning, accomplishment, opportunity,
e all well, but they do not of them
selves insure success. Thousands have

Novel Duck Hunting.
An ingenious Minnesota youth istol e
credited with a novelty in the way c f
duck hunting. ' .
He lives at a beautiful spot known as
I'ice Lake, from the wild rise trrowino-
on its margin as thick as wheat in fields.
Ducks love this rice, and when they
have partaken of sufficient quantity their
flesh becomes of a nature to tempt the
palate of an anchorite, but the Kice
Lake ducks, either from experience or
an instinct which may be said to be wis
dom intensified, do not like human com
pany, and when they see a hunter ap
proaching, generally hasten out of gun
shot range. Dick, the youth before al
luded to, was particularly fond of ducks
ami looked with contempt upon the fu
tile efforts of his sire to provide the
table with Ibis delicacy. He determined
to have some ducks for dinner, if it took
all the morning to accomplish the task.
Proceeding to the corn field, he selected
a large pumpkin, cut a hole in one end,
removed its internal arrangements, car
ried it down to the shore, divested him
self of his clothes, placed the pumpkin
over his head, and waded in among the
rice. In a short time the fat and tender
pioneer of a flock of ducks approached,
and, imagining the vegetable to be free
from guile, encouraged the others to
follow. They were partaking of their
matutinal meal, when astonishment
struck them at the sight of the pioneer
suddenly diving not that there is any
thing astonishing in a duck diving but
this one dived feet foremost and neglect
ed to come up. A committee of one
was appointed to investigate, and aj
proaching the pumpkin, suddenly made
backward dive, ami was gone. This
was enough for the others. The-y fled
iu dismay, and henceforth numbered as
among their deadliest terrors the inno
cent ingredient of New England pies.

problem of crossing the Atlantic in a

attempted, aud ii possible accomplished,
as early next year as may be, provided
