There win much Bpecnlation and
tuppreBAfld excitement in the cilice of
Meenra, Crabby A (JoldinK, co'unial
brokers c I French street. Mr. Crtgn
by, for many years the senior partner
In the llriu, had jutt died, and the
conduct and manaKement of Hairs
bad thus devolved upon Mr. Cioliliny,
-who whs now sole executor to the de
cent ed. The event ha i canaed in the
office n f jeling of unanimous regret.
While by nature just man, Mr.
Crngeby hit 1 been an unustially kind
one eo far, at all events, as those
whom he employed were concerned.
A man ol high character and strict
probity, he never ma le his own up
rixhtneHj and rectitude an eicune for
severely jiuiirinK others. As one of
bis clerks put it, "Crabby was Btrict,
bat you couldn't help liking him, for
be would never find fault without a
caus" for it." This necessarily insured
him the respett and liking of those
who were under Ins authority.
Another circumstance which addod
1i his popularity was the fact fiat he
disliked making changes in the ar
rangement of, the ilrm. Having once
employed man and fo tml him t-ust-woithy,
Mr. Oagttby preferred to ra
tain bim, even though the salary paid
continuoufly iiicruucd. This gave a
feeling of security t) clerks and ware
housemen, which remained undis
turbed till the death i f the chief ruler
wakened them, when they remem
bered hosv different were the views
and opinions of the junior partner,
who would now hold undisputed
riway. For Mr. Holding was accus
tomed to rate his social inferiors by a
very dillereut scale. Each, in his
eyes, had "a markit value." That
was his phase. A man might have
served the Arm well and faithfully for
twenty or thirty years, but this, in
Mr. Uolding's estimation, gave him do
claim to regard or consideration.
Lut, as almost always happens,
there wu one person with whom his
rudeness of manner was veiled by
courtesy, V '"perlty softened into
mildness by the desire to please, and
this pert on was the daughter of the
lata partner, and consequently his
cousin, Kiinor Ctngsbv,
For some years Mr. Holding bad
cherished in his inmost heat t or,
perhaps, it would bebettertosay mind
than heart a liking for his fair rela
tive, and had set himself to gain ber
favorable regard. As yet, however,
be bad no', achieved nny marked suc
cess, but he was of n dogged, persever
ing nature, and did not despair. The
match would be a very advantageous
one, for Kiinor was, by her father's
death, placed in possession of a con
siderable (oitnne, which would be of
use in mending and improving the
"For," as Mr. Uolding was wont to
say to a few friends, "Cragsby was
good fellow enough, but slow and old
fashioned couldn't keep pace with
the age." And new that the game win
in bis own hands he began to launch
out mote boldly. But to do this re
quired capital, and this, if he could
but win his cousin's regard, was ready
t3 his hand. Elinor's persoral at
tractions, which had at firstenptivated
bim, would have been almost sufli
cient to induce him to seek the alli
ance, but K.inor's wealth was irresiati
"liennhaw, the governor wants you,"
said ono of the seniors to a young man
who, bending over his desk, appeared
so intent upon his occupation that the
other had to reptut the words, and in
a louder key, before any notice was
Then Hubert Kenshaw, with a brief,
"Thank you ltrnwn," put his work
carefully in his desk, and, locking it,
turned and walked quietly across the
o llico to the private room. Mr. llrown
looked after him.
"He's a queer one," he soliloquized,

Mr. Brown turned bis attention to hie.
Meanwhile Gilbert Kenshaw had en

Holding sat alone.

Hiibert KenBhaw Vowed, but said
nothing. The error thus magnified
into so mticn importance, was in re
ality a tritling oversight, and was for
the most part the fault of a junior,
This, probably, Mr. Holding well
knew, but as the papers would come
before Kenshaw for revision, he cLojo
to assume that the entire blame retted
with him. The young man hhi at
once too high-minded and kind
hearted to exculpate himself by ue
cueing his junior, and in a few words
expressed his regret.
"It must not occur again, Mr. Ken
shaw." Gilbert bowed, but made no reply,
nd then, after taking his principal's
directions, left the room.
Mr. Uolding looked after bim with
an annoyed expression on bis fane.
"If I catch you tripping again," he
muttered to himself, '"you shall eufler
for it, my friend."
But the days went by, and for a time
his vindictivenees remained without
an opportunity to exercise itjelt.
He was shrewd enough, however, to
trait his opfw.iuuity. And. that a
not long in coming. One Saturday
afternoon he happened to want Uilb-M
for some purpose, and sent for bim.
Tbe young man could nowhere be
found. Mr. Uolding glanced at the
clock and frowned angrily.
It was just ten minutes to the time
at which, their wcrk being done, the
clerks were entitled to have. Some
were already closing their desks and
making preparations for their depart
ure, but the sudden appearance of the
chief in the outer oilice galvanized
them into renewed activity. A kind
hearted senior in tbe meantime sur
reptiously dispatched an otlice boy to
the restaurant which Gilbert generally
frequented, but the well-meant effjrt
Mr. Golding walked across tbe office
to the farther window, which, the
bouse being a corner one, commanded
the length of the street, and atcod
looking ont. SmUenly be uttered a
slight exclamation, which drew all
eyes, with glances more or less furtive,
to tbe window. There, at some little
distance, quittly stiolling along, was
(iilbert Kenshaw. Unconscious of
those watching him, he paused at the
corner, looked at his watch, and, tf'.er
a moment's hesitation, as if uncertain
what course to putsue, turned into a
side street and disappeared.
Monday morning came, and to the
amazement of each and all Mr. Hold
ing wu) the first st the office. The
juniors, who were natnially among
the earliest, were warned by the house
keeper in a mysterious whisper that
"the governor was there." A greater
drgree cf order and silence reigned
that morning than was usual. One by
one, as the clerks came in, the various
posts were taken up. Jy the senior
clerk's desk stood Mr. Golding, a hard,
pitiless expression on his face. Tbe
clock was just chiming nine, when the
dojr swung open, and Uilbert Ken
shaw walked in. He glanced round,
evidently rather surprised at seeing
Mr. Uolding, and then walked toward
bis desk. Ere he had walked three
ttps the principal's voice checked
"You need not trouble, to open your
desk, Mr. Ksnshaw."
Uilbert turned round, still more sur
prised at this intimation.
Mr. tioiding walked across tbe office,-
and the two men stood facing
each other. One glance at the stern
face, those cold, keen eyes before him,
and Gilbert saw the other s purp.se
in a moment.
Every one in the nflice looked on,
either stealthily or openly, with in
creasing interest, and every one was
puzzled by the way in which the
young man maintained his nir of easy
ndillerenco. iiut Mr. Holden give
but little time fur speculation.
"ion left before the time on Satur
day, Mr. Kenshaw."
About ten minutes before 2
o'closk," answered the other.
"And your reason for doing so r
"My work was finished, and I had
an important engagement."
Indeed I" sneared bis employer.
"But I do not allow any of my clerks
to keep import tot engagement, till
the oilice is closed, a ad as you bave
thought fit to leave at your own time,
yon will not be surprised if I inform
you that I shall not need your services
any longer. This is the amount due
to yon." and Mr. Golding held out a
slip cf paper, but Uilbert made no
movement t take it.
"I understand you," Mr. Golding.
and I am ai ready to leave your service
as you are to require rite to do to.
Technically you are In the right I
therefore apologize for having de
prived you of ten minutes on Satur
day. My presence, doubtleps, is not
very agreeable to you, but we may
meet again before long; should such
an event happen you will pit ae un
derstand that the interview will not
be of my seeking. Uood-day, gentle
men," and wita a comprehensive
glance and bow to the amazed on
lookers the young man turned and
quitted the cilice, leaving bis em
ployer standing, as much a t onished
as any, with the unheeded check still
between his fingers.
Elinor Cragsby sat with her friend
and companion dreamily gazing into
the lire. After a while the elder lady
looked up from the book she was renti
"A penny for your thoughti, Nell !"
The gill started at the voice, and the
words bad to be repeated before she
seemed to understand them.
"I'm net sure." she paid meditative
ly, "that they are worth the sum."

smile, "without wishing to be uncom
plimentary to the Btibjeit of litem, I
think 1 can guess their direction."

her companion. "As I bnve often
told you, it appears to me that he has
deliberately reeolvcd to succeed in the
attempt to win your regard, and he is
not a man of hoe feelings. Nothing
short of absolute discourtesy or rude
ness would repel mni, unless, indeed,
it were the presence of a successful

There was something in the last
sentence that brought a flash to Eli
nor Cragsby 'a face. She row from ber
seat, and, moving toward the window.
stcoJ looking out. suddenly she ut
tered an exclamation ol annoyance.
Her friend looked up.
"Here he is!" said Elinor, as if in
answer to the look.
A smile played for a moment round
Mrs. Seafoith's lips, then vanished.
"Shall I leave you?" she said, half
"No on no account," and Elinor,
smiling nerseii in epite ol tier vexa
tion, recroesed the 103m and with
gentle foice pushed the elder lady
into her seat again and then resumed
her own. Scarcely bad she done so
when the servant announced "Mr,
Uolding," and then that gentleman
entered, all bows and smiles.
"Eilen," he said, attempting to take
her hand, "yon must know how long
and bow devoteilly I have been at
tached to you, bw I have longed for
the hour that should enable me to
appioich yon and offer myself as a
suitor to your hand."
He paused to note the eQect of this
declaration, which, in reality, he had
careltilly prepared bt lore he reached
the house that evening. But he
learned nothing from the contempt

slightly averted, as was natural, but in
no wise did it j fair owner seem dis

a little uneasy, and a new idea for the
first time flashed upon his mind.
Could there be another? It seemed
too absurd, but it would not be dis
missed, lie rose from his chair and
bent over her for a last appeal.
"Can it be?" bemurmurred half re
proachfully. "Have I a rival ?"
As the words left her lips the room
door opened and voice announced
"Mr. Kenshaw." At the sound Mr.
Golding, with a sudden start, faced

rogatively, but in a t)na that sounded
strange in bis own ears, and caused
the other three to look curiously at
The girl blushed, smiled, but did
not answer, and Mrs. Seafortb, who
had risen and approached them, came
to ber re'cue.

probably has good reasons for his
friendship. Fortnne hunters usually
Gilbert Ksnshaw took step for
ward. "That is true, as a general statement,
Mr. Halding," he said, with ail his
former tay indifference, "but it is not
true, if yon will allow me to say so. in
this particular instance. I. personally,
am not a fortune bntitsr. Perhaps you
know some one who may better de
serve tbe name?"
"Yon were my clerk," said Golding,
with a biltsr sneer; "what are you
"I will tell you," replied the other
in the same nniuflled tone. "As you
rightly said, I was your clerk, and it
came about in this way. At my
father's death, the property to which
I tucceeded was somewhat incum
bered. Your late partner was an old
friend of ours, and he suggested that
I should oltiin a situation for some
few years, leaving the property thus
to clear itself by applying tbe income
to tbe extinction of tbe debt. To sim
plify matters he offered me a position
in his own oilice at a gcod salary, stip
ulating that nothing should be said
or known of his long friendship with
our family, leet it should be thought
that be might favor me. I (accepted
the post. In a few years, as we
planned, my property wav unincum
bered, and your sudden dismissal of
me simply anticipated my own resig
nation by two or three weeks. You
see, Mr. Golding, while I will give you
full credit for having intended ti in
jure me, I can very readily treat with
indifference a course of action that has
ended in failure."
As Gilbert ceased sneaking he
glanced nnaningly at Elinor, who,
with Mrs. Stnford.bad stood quietly

from one face to another, saw that bis

But the whole mattsr was so utterly
unexpected thtt lor a moment be felt
that it could rot be really true. He
turned to Elinor:
"You kne all this, it seems?"
"Yes," she raid, but speaking in so
low a tone that he could scarcely
catch the words: "I knew of all; but

said that gentleman, promptly com
pleting the sentence.

Philadelphia Heeonl: A doctor told
ne the cither day of the case of a
oitng woman who is one of tlieihtn-
rs in .Ueiii. she apiH'iiin in tights.
to oil the dancers in that tilav.
icse tights are pulled on with the
vatcst rare, no as not to show a
rinkle, and are held in place
a narrow leather belt, which
(trapped around the waist
xt to the skin, ami pulled
t;,.), (lint, the L'irl is almost
ut in two. She cannot do the pulling
rscll ; it hits 10 tie none ny anoiner
'Kim' nml alti'ii it is so tight that
do id Miu.lt i, ilrnit the ti'hts are
tucked uud'vr it, ud thug, kept iu
tiosition. Then she dresses and pics
upon the stage and dances. The rouse
cjtience irr she has a terrible in
ternal disease which can never lie
cured while she is playing this
part, and she cannot afford to stop
playing it, for she is the bread-winner
for a large family. The doctor argued
with her on the subject, and said that
if she kept on she would kill herself,
and then the family would have no one
to work for thein, and would not have
the money to bury her with. She ad
mitted tin truth of what he said, but
added that nil the other girls were in
tlie same condition, and that they hud
to take their chances. She might not
die if she went on dancing, and she
certainly would starve if she stopped.
It is not only the girls who dance in
AIonin, but the girls who dunce any
where, who have a very hard time of
it, for there seems to lie no other way
of holding up the tights than this pro
cess of strapping. They might be fas
tened over tlie shoulders in some way,
but then, as the girls have to wear the
necks of their dresses low, that is impossible.
Of Facts for the I'ubli
At la nt a, Ga., January 21, 188S.
Emerging from a severe and long
spell of typhoid fever, I discovered
that the fever had settled in my right
leg, whioh caused it to swell to an
enormous size, remaining so quite
three years, resisting all treatment.
A small nicer finally made its appear
ance a littlo above the ankle, which
refused to heal to any and all ex-ter-nal
application and the use of the
most noted blood poison remedies.
Tho ulcer continued to enlarge,
frequently discharging, perhaps, as
much as a cupful of pus or matter
per day. The sizo of the ulcer was
about two inches in diameter, ex
tending to a depth near the bone.
At one time it appeared that the
flesh in all contiguous parts would
surely become a running sore, as its
peculiarly flabby, spotted and un
healthy condition clearly indicated,
and (it was (intimated that I might
lose my leg. ltfy condition beooming
so critical, and the ulcer enlarging
so rapidly, we sent for Dr. J. P.
Dromgoole, who made a thorough
examination, and said that the flesh
on my leg for six inches around the
sore would soon slough off if not
remedied; that I must have my leg
bandaged daily and commence the
use of B. B. B.
I acted according to his instruc
tions, and after using the second bot
tle the ulcer looked fresh and healthy
and commenced healing. I continued
the use of B. B. B., and to the grdat
astonishment and satisfaction oi my
self and friends, the ulcer continued
to heal rapidly and is now entirely
well, and I am attending to my busi
ness at W. II. Brotherton'a store. I
do not hesitate to recommend B.B.B.
as a wonderful, speedy and effectual
blood purifier.f ar superior to anything
else I ever used.
I refer to W. II. Brotherton, W.
B. Cone, Maj. D. A. Cook, Dr. Park,
Dr. J. L. l'inson and others of At
lanta. W. M. CHESHIRE.
