THE BOYS ARE HOME.
fiXanaser Phillips Has a Plllfal Story to Tell
There were many glad hearts in the city last
evening when Manager Horace Phillips and the
balance of the Pittsburg ball team arrived in
the city. The team, together with the Indian
apolis aggregation, had been expected since
Saturday morning. The Hoosiers, however,
will not arrive until about 10 o'clock this morn
ing. Manager Phillips was probably never more se
rious in conversation in his lire than be was last
night Thoughts of narrow escapes from fatal
' wrecks, floods and extraordinary rain. Storms
seemed to banish all the stock-in-traae, for
which he is proverbial, from bis mind. He,
however, seemed to be impressed with the
common notion that there is a guardian angel
ever hovering o'er professional ball clubs when
they are on the road.
"We're all glad thatwe'ro alive," he said,
"but goodness knows we've had an awful home
coming. 1 never again want to see such an
other storm and the fearful sights that have re
sulted from its devastating force. I couldn't
tell anybody what the rainfall was like when
we were in Washington on Friday.
THAT TEEJIENDOUS KAINFALL.
''For two hours and a half it seemed as if
cloud after cloud was bursting in rapid succes
sion. Despite this fact, however, we meant
not to be fooled as in New York last year, and
we were on band at all hazards. Of course
there was no game, and we couldn't get home
by the Baltimore and Ohio route.. We traveled
to Harrisburg and were blockaded there
along with the Indianapolis team. Trains
could only travel six miles west of Harrisburg
as all bridges except one were down between
Harrisburg and Altoona. We tried in every
possible way to proceed west on the Pennsyl
vania Railroad, but couldn't make it Finally
we returned to Philadelphia, and traveled
from there via the Lehigh Valley road to Buf
falo, and on to Pittsburg by way of the Erie
and Pittsburg. Just as we left Buffalo the In
dianapolis players landed there, and they will
not get here until to-morrow morning at 10
o'clock. Our journey home from Washington
has cost us $600 more than the usual price and'
had it not been for Hanlon and Sunday I don't
krJw where we could have secured our fares
hofie I had sent all the club money home ex
cel n. amount sufficient for ordinary x
' v fofces. We couldn't reach Pittsburg by wire
EuVtat we would have been stranded It Sunday
anS Ganlon had not come to the rescue.
KOI A BIO SUCCESS.
"Our trip has not been so successful finan
cially by $3,000 as our similar trip last year. We
were $1,200 short at Chicago, compared with
last year. "We were fully $2,000 short at New
York and we were about even at Boston. A
Philadelphia we increased a little on last year's
receipts, which altogether leaves us 3,000 short
of what we received last year.
The playing of the team." continued Mana
ger Phillips, "has been excellent, except, of
course, the pitching. The boys have been
fielding better than anybody we have met, and
batting as good as anybody. But of what use
was it to do this when our pitchers were just
throwing the ball harmlessly across the plate.
Btaley has certainly performed like a hero. He
deserves credit in all respects. Our young
pitchers are apparently promising youths, but
they have, a lot to leam yet The
team is in excellent condition of health
but almost all the players are weary and fa
tigued by our awful home coming. We would
have liked to play two games to-morrow, but
Manager Bancroft won't hear of it, because of
the tiresome journey, which his team will rest
from to-morrow. We will, therefore, probably
Slay two games for one admission fee on
uesday. The Hoosiers have had just as rough
a time of it as we have, and it is only fair to
say that they will be in no condition to play
two games to-morrow."
To-day's game, if the weather permits, will
commence at 4 o'clock P. it Gal Tin and Miller
will be the home battery, and probably Boyle
and Myers will be at the points for the visitors.
Umpire Fessenden arrived with the team last
night He is a big and powerful looking man
with a genial looking face. During a conver
sation be said that everything is going smooth
ly along as far as the umpires are concerned.
He thinks that the unusually bad weather so
far this season has done considerable injury to
the respective clubs.
COKCERKED.ABOUT THE TEAMS.
President Young Thinks About the Pitta
burs and the Chicagos.
lETXCIAL TJSLZOBOl TO THE DISPATCH.
Washington, D. C June 2. In conse
quence of the floods in Western Pennsylvania
there is considerable apprehension felt here as
to the whereabouts of the Chicago and Pitts
burg teams. They started West yesterday, and
It is feared they encountered the storm and are
laid up somewhere along the road. President
Young telegraphed to Chicago and Pittsburg
this morning, inquiring as to the safety of the
baseballists. Mr. Young received a dispatch
from Umpire Lynch, this morning, stating that
he is storm-bound at Altoona, and will be una
ble to preside over the game scheduled to be
played in Chicago this afternoon.
' The assignment of League umpires for the
ensuing games is as follows: Curry in Wash
ington, Fessenden in Pittsburg and Lynch in
Chicago. In the event of Lynch's failure to
reach Chicago, Dave Sullivan has been as
signed by Mr. Young to officiate
THE CHECKER. CHAMPIONSHIP.
Great Interest In ibe Reed-Barker Contest
Which Starts To-Day.
The checker players of this city and through
out the country are exceedingly interested in
the great championship match which begins
to-day at Chicago between James Reed, of
Pittsburg, "and C.F. Barker, of Boston. Mr.
Barker Is champion of the United States and
England, baring beaten Smith the English
champion. Barker is a strong favorite, but
Reed has a host of friends here and in Chicago.
Both contestants claim to be in excellent form
and each is confident of rictory. Barker de
feated Reed some time ago in this city, but
Reed claims his defeat was caused by a very
stupid mistake on his part
Mr. H. F. McAteer left the city on Saturday
to represent the Pittsburg Checker Club at the
match. Before leaving Mr. McAteer said that
he had great faith in Reed's ability to win.
Mr. McAteer further said that the Pittsburg
club is causing local Interest in checkers to de

A Local Sportlnc Hu Will Hatch Him
A local sporting man, who is Interested in
pedestrlanit m, stated yesterday that bo is pre
pared to match George Cartwright to run En
gledrum 12 hours for 250 or $500 a side. Cart
wright's friend said:
"Ihearthat Engledrum has a host of ad
mirers, who think him as good as anybody in a
12-hour race. Of course. I know he is a good
man, but I think Cartwright a better. At any
rate, I am prepared to match Cartwright
The latter conld not be seen last evening.
He has backers who are prepared to match

they will tackle Cartwright is another matter.
FIXED UP A ROUTE.
How ainnnger Phillips Hustled at Philadel
phia to Get Home.
rSFECXAX. TELEGRAM TO THE DISFATCH.1
Philadelphia. June 2. The Pittsburg
club returned from Harrisburg to this city
last night After considerable figuring Man
ager Horace Phillips fixed up a route to reach
Pittsburg. His club left this city this morn
ing over the Lehigh Valley Railroad. AtAl
lentown the Indianapolis club was picked up
and the train proceeded on Its way to
Buffalo. From there the clubs will go to
Cleveland and thence to Pittsburg. If Mana
ger Phillips' time table does not miscarry, the
teams will reach Pittsburg In time to play two
games to-morrow afternoon.
Races for the Fourth.
The flood has done considerable injury to the
Exposition Park. The track is almost entirely
covered with water, and trainers will be un
ablo to exercise their horses for a lew days.
When the water subsides, however, it is under
stood that the tracks will be put into first-class
condition. The management of the track in
tends to have an excellent day's racing on
July 4. There will be fonr events, two of
which will be for good classes.
A Pugilist's Opinion.
Elmer Grant, the well-known heavy weight
pugilist returned from Johnstown last evening.
He went there on Saturday to try and find
some friends, but he failed to locate them. He
says that no man living can give anything like
a correct idea of the appearance of the city.
He thinks that several well-known Johnstown
sporting men have been killed or drowned.
The Johnstown Sufferers.
The Keystones and the Standards will play a
game at 'Cyclers' Park this afternoon, for the
benefit of the Johnstown sufferers. The teams
are well known, the Keystones bemg the col
ored champions ot Pennsylvania. A good game
is expected, and a large attendance hoped for.
Bent the Water Cares.
The Standards, of Pittsburg, defeated the
Water Cures, at Phillipsburg on Saturday, in a
onesided game. There was a good attendance.
Following was the score:
Standards... 4 2 12 0 0 0 0 2-11
Water Cures 0 10.140000 6
Arrangements Nearly Complete.
The Columbia Boat Club has almost complet

Mark's Church, Southside, were elected dele
gates to the Episcopal Convention, which meets
in Oil City this week.
The Retail Jewelry Business.
Jn the returns made for the assessment of
business tax the retail jewelers show a large
increase in the amount of business done by
them daring the past year. Increased fa
cilities and larger stocks, with the fact that
many expensive goods formerly bought
in New York and Philadelphia are now
purchased here, has likely been the cause of
this increased trade, especially so among
the larger stores.

BUFFALO BILL SUCCEEDS BOULAKGEB.
HeUKowPosmgas a Masculine Be&oty In the Eyes
of the Parisians,
The Earl of Zetland, the new Viceroy ot
Ireland, will be no improvement on his
predecessors. The Gladstonians are sparing
no effort to make coercion, unpopular. The
Paris Exposition is already on the high
road to success. Buffalo Bill is now the
lion of Paris society.
IDT CABLE TO THE SISFATCH.1
London, June 2. Copyright At last
a noble lord has been fonnd willing to
swallow Balfour and the Lord Lieutenantey
of Ireland together. Earl Zetland is the
name of the individual whom Salisbury,
after desperate efforts, has unearthed at the
tail end of the alphabetical list of peers.
He is a ridiculously modern person, being
able to trace his folk back 130 years only,
and is probably moved by a desire to add a
few linesW interesting reading to his dry
page of family history.
In debates his qualifications as a man
chose 1 to represent the Queen and sit on
the throne in Dublin are as follows: He
has money, is a well-known turf gambler,
belongs to seven good clubs, cares nothing
for politics, and so far from interfering with
Balfour's methods of making Ireland
peaceful, understands distinctly that he is
to be an ornamental tool like his sporting
predecessor. Lord Londonderry.
Gladstoman managers who spend much
time devising methods for giving incredu
lous Englishmen an idea of what coercion
really is, have just hit upon and put into
execution rather a good idea. Exact copy
has been made of
A HUGE BATTEBINO BAM,
known as Balfour's maiden, which has fig
ured disgracefully In numerous evictions.
This ram will soon start on a journey
through rural England, accompanied by
speakers who will take turns lecturing on
its work, and who will seize any opportu
nity for practical demonstration of the way
Irish cottages are knocked down. This is
expected to influence the sturdy country
Briton, and make him vote to abolish the
use of Balfour and battering rams as peace
makers. The Grand Old Man's golden
wedding falls on July 25, and is to be cele
brated with unusually fine goings-on at
Hawarden. Mr. Gladstone will probably
not come to London for Parliament any
more after that date unless something very
remarkable should turn np.
I have spent part of the week in Paris
and that gay town is evidently destined to
be the center of the sight-seeing tourist
activity of the world all summer. A fact
which impresses one more at each visit is
the contented frame of mind suddenly ac
quired by fickle Parisians, and which grows
with the prosperity of their exhibition.
BOTJLANGEK OUT OF DATE.
Fiery individuals who three months ago
were yelling for Boulanger and getting
their coats torn ofi by police are qniet and
otherwise engaged. Prosperous ones spend
their time bragging and climbing Eiffel
tower, drinking cool draughts and watching
curious female foreigners dance. The poor
ragged Bonlangists seem mostly to have
taken np business of speculating in ex
hibition tickets, which can be had at very
It is interesting, by the way, to note that
America has had the honor of supplying a
man to fill the void created in the hearts of
the susceptible French females by Boulang
Buffalo Bill is the man, and he is fast
catting the General ont as a professional
male beauty. His eyes are not as bine as
the General's, but he has longer hair and is
bigger. He rides better and there are
fierce tales of bears, Indians and bisons
weltering in their blood to lend romantic
interest to his smiles.
The success of this curious combination
of American scout and circus actor is all
the more pronounced, as French society is
not nearly as prone as English to take np
outlandish social lions. On "Wednesday
Buffalo Bill had dejeuner offered him by
one of the fastest and best known Parisian
society women, Comtesse Chandon de
Briailles. A real genuine princess, and
Madam Hackon, a famous Paris beauty,
were there, and these with many masculine

When I was a boy I possessed a pet owl. It
was a source of amusement to me to feed that
owl with.mice. When the trap had caught one
of these night disturbers, l,took it to the solemn
owl, who sat blinking in the daylight half
awako and half asleep. The owl at once gulped
down the mouse, and then went fast asleep
with the mouse in her inside, but with the end
of the tail protruding from her beak. About
an hour later I went to the owl, took hold of
the end of the mouse's tail and pulled it, where
upon up the throat of tho owl came the mouse,
backward, and the bird of wisdom was roused
to wild wonder and profound puzzlement to
account for the sudden disgorging of her meal.
Mrs. Sidebottom had bolted uncle Jeremiah
and was doing her best to digest him and bis
fortune, when, unexpectedly, her meal came to
life again, and she sat gulping, blinking, be
mnzzed'in her sitting room waiting for the re
turn of Lambert from the billiard table, to
communicate to him the news that had reached
her. Anyone who had seen my owl would per
ceive at once that the case of Mrs. Sidebottom
The consternation could hardly have been
greater on Quilp reappearing when a posse of
wives was sitting discussing him, esteemed
dead: and Jeremiah was no Qnilp. But it is
notQuilps alone wbowonld produce dismay
were they to return to life. Imagine the emo
tions produced in a hospital which has received
a bequest of 10,000, and has spent 15 guineas
on the portrait of the benefactor, should the
benefactor descend from the frame, declare
himself alive, and require the return of his
thousands. Think of the junior partner, who
has been waiting till a senior shuffled off his
mortal coll to make room for him ; how would
he feel woro the dead to return to lifer Think
of the curate waiting for ihe living, the next
presentation to which is for him, should the
old rector, after having laid himself down in
his grave, change his mind and get ont and re
sume his benefice for another 15 years!
Mrs. Sidebottonvhad but just received news
of the reappearance of Uncle Jeremiah, and,
like an energetic woman, she wasteias little
time as might be in exclamations of dismay.
She was not the woman to hover in uncertainty
and ask advice how to get out of a difficulty.
Like one who has trodden in mire, she pulled
her leg out instantaneously to set it on dry and
"I don't know how the law stands, and
whether the sentence of the Court of Probate
can be reversed," she said, "but of one thing I
am very sure that ho who has can hold, and

has any wit"
Then in came Lambert
"Oh, Lambl" exclaimed his mother, "here Is
a pretty predicament we are inl My brother

The captain burst out laughing.
"This is no laughing matter." said his mother,
testily. "HowcanyoubesuchahyenaT Jere

"Is it nis handwriting?" asked Lambert
"Of course it is. Here is a pretty mess for
me to be in. I shall have everyone laughing at
me, because I swore that the man in the shirt
and great coat was Jeremiah, 'Concerning

be mean by that but that he proposes calling
me to account for every penny? I will not re

"But you have received It,"
"I shall make my landlady return it, with a
note to say that she took tho liberty to open it,
so as to be able to write to the sender, and say
that I have gone abroad for my health. Where

"She had money. Five hundred pounds

"What of that? The insipid women make the
best wives, they are non-resistant. In marriage,
men should be teetotalers and take weak and

"Don't think I've much fancy for Buch," said
the Captain, languidly.
"I tremble to think," said his mother, angri
ly, "what the offspring o( a weak woman and
such an unenergetic man would be"
"Then why recommend such a marriage?"
''Because we most consider ourselves, not
the unborn possibilities. However, to return
to tho subject that now most occupies me. My
condition is desperate You must' marry. I
can support you no longer."
"And so you deport me to Algiers?"
"My dear boy, wo are not going to Algiers."
"Then where to?"
"Andermatt where is that?"
"On the Saint Gottbard."

"What makes you say 'by all means?' " asked
his mother, sharply.
"She's a jolly girl, good looking, and no non
sense about her."
"Do you think that I would take you to her,
If that were all? You know she is a.widow.
She has her 150 from what was sunk by Jere-
miah when she married, but that is not all": she
has been left well provided for by her iusband,
Mr. Albert Baynes. I know all about it I got
everything out of Salome. I told her how
anxious I was about her sister, how pained I
was concerning her bereavement, and how I
hoped she was not left in bad circumstances.
Salome very openly told me that she was very
comfortably provided for, and no stipulation
made about marrying again. I know what
Salome meant when she let me draw that out
of her she meant that you should know; but I
then had my eye on Miss Bmlthson. However,
now that we must go abroad we may as well
kill two birds with one stone Besides, as Jere
miah took such a lively interest in Janet, he
may be gratified at your marrying her, and not
press me with demands which I could not com
ply with which Twill not, no, will net comply
"But she is in bad health."
"Oh, nothing bnt sentiment at her husband's
death; besides, if she is delicate, all the bet-"
"I don't see that" said the Captain, feebly
disgusted at his mother's heartlessness.
"Fiddle-faddle." said" Mrs. Sldebotton; "It is
all part of the business It goes with widows'
caps. When I lost Sidebottom I was worn to a
shadow and got a cough; but I began to recover
flesh when I went into half mourning, and lost
my cough with my weeds. When you appear
on the scene it will be codliver oil to her."
"It will be very dull at this place you speak
"Of course it will be dull and hateful, but
what wDl you have? I sacrifice myself for you.
( You must got off my hands and shift for your
self;! have had you as a charge too long. I
want to see you well provided for, and as the
Bmlthson and Jane Mulberry failed, you must
take the B lynes. I can't tell you exactly what
she is worth, but I will ascertain from Salome
who Is there, before you commit yourself. Re
member. Lamb, we must go. j cannot stay
here and face Jeremiah."
"Why not? It would be the most honorable
thing to do, and might answer the best in the
"I cannot do it Why how would you feel
how could you feel toward a person who bad
pronounced you dead, and proceeded to ad
minister? Much as a man might toward the
surgeon who proceeded to dissect him before
he was dead. No, Lamb, I will not remain. I
can always write to Jeremiah, and express
my profound astonishment to hear of his re
turn, and assume an air of injury that I should
have been left in the dark so long. Indeed, I
think that will be the card to play throw the
blame on him, and if the case comes into court
I can lay stress on this. Willfully he allowed
me to remain in ignorance of his existence
Something had to be done. The factory would
not go on itself. The factory could not be car
ried on without money. The business would
go to pieces unless energetically prosecuted.
Jeremiah may feel grateful, andpught to feel
grateful to me, that I acted with such readiness
in the matter and saved the firm of Penny

bill against him for my services. However, I
had rather do this from a distance, and by let

him dance to that tune"
Mrs. Sidebottom was a woman of resource
She never suffered herself to be discouraged by
adversity; and adversity now faced her wearing
the mask of her brother returned to life She
had much energy of character and fertility of
Invention, which, If she had been a woman of
principle, instead of unscrupulous self-seeking,
might have made her a valuable person in so

Invested some of the money she had drawn to
herself from Jeremiah's savings in a manner
that promised well; some she had lost She
neither desired to be called to account for what
she had squandered, nor to be forced to re
imburse those happy speculations which were
likely to place her in easy circumstances. Until
she had had g"od professional advice, and until
she knew what her brother intended, she con
sidered that safety lay in absence
She .went about in York, leaving her card;
and when she saw a friend, she told her that
she was oft to the continent for a bit of a
change Btiehadnot been very well, and the
doctors had insisted on variation of scene and
air, and she felt herself that life was too short
to spend It in one place. The world was large
and must be seen, and those dear snowy mount
ains they possessed for her a fascination she
had struggled against, but had been unable
farther to resist.
"My dear Mrs. Jacques, you know what anxi
ety and care I had last year about my poor
brother's affairs winding up, you know. I
held up through it all, animated by a sense of
duty, but it told on me in the end, and now I
am going to relax. I shall spend the summer in
the Alps, and unless I am much better I shall
go to Algiers for the winter. Have you any
friends who will be there next Christmas? Oh,
mydearl to think of Christmas in Algiers; a
hot sun and no plum pudding I"
Mrs. Sidebottom had not the faintest desire
to. spend a winter in Algiers; she thought Men
tone, or Florence, or Fau wouldsuitherbetter,
according to where she could get into the best
society, and she resolved to leave the determi
nation to the future; if she found during the
summer people whom it was worth her while
banging on to, and who were wintering any-
where abroad, she would attach herself to
them. But with the curious crookedness which
prevails in some natures, she went about asking
questions abont hotels and pensions at Algiers,
keeping her ears open at the same time to hear
of persons of position who were likely to winter
' elsewhere. It was possible that if she made it
known that she would winter in Algiers, ac
quaintances would tell her of friends of theirs
who were wintering elsewhere. Nor was she
"Oh, I am so sorry you are not going to Men
tone; Sir William Pickering is going there be
cause of the health of dear Lady Pickering.
Such charming people you would have liked
to know them but as you are going to Algiers,
ot course I cannot got you acquainted with
each other." Mrs. Sidebottom knew well
enough that if she bad said she was going to
Mentone this piece of information would not
have been vouchsafed her. "Oh! Mrs. Side
bottom you are visiting Algiers. There is a
nice young lady, a niece, going there She Is
in a decline I shall be eternally obliged to you
if you would show her kindness; she is badly
off, and it wonld be goodness itself if you
would just look in now and then and ascertain
that she is comfortable and not imposed on."
"My dear Mrs. Tomson, you could not have
asked me to do anything that would have
pleased me more but unfortunately it is not
certain that I am going to Algiers. If I make
up my mind to go I will write to you for tho
address of your niece, and you may rely on me,
I will do my utmost for her." This was accom
panied by an internal mem.: Have nothing
further to do with Mrs. Tomson. I'm not going
abroad to be anybody's nurse. Heaven forbid.
"Ob, Mrs. Sidebottom! So you are off to
Switzerland and Algiers. Now there could bo

CHAPTER XiXVX Deposed.
Gone as a dreamt that brief period of hope
and happiness and comfort. Philip had a dis
quieting prospect opening before him. as dis
quieting as that which drove Mrs. Sidebottom
from England, but different in kind. Philip
was ready enough to account for every penny,
and return all the money undiminished wljlch
had come to bis share What troubled him
was the fearful look-out of a return t fur
nished lodgings. He'saw himself abont to be
cast forth from the elegancies ot life and cast
down to its vulgarities and discomfort. He
sawbimself about to be transferred from the
cushioned carriage on the smooth road,
to a buggy on a corduroy way, all
jolts and kicks and plunges and break
downs. He was about to descend
from succulent joints and savory entre-mets to
mutton chops, alternating into beefsteaks, from
claret to bitter beer, from a place of authority
to one of submission, from progress to stagna
tion, from a house of his own over which to
range at pleasure to confinement within two
rooms, one openlne out of the other. He must
go back to streaky forks, and spoons that at
dinner recalled the eggs of breakfast, to knives
with adhesive bandies and tumblers frosted
with finger-marks, to mirror frames encased in
flyproof snipped green paper and beadedflower
mats, a horsehair sofa, a cruet-stand and old
crusted mustard and venerable Worcester
sauce in it, to wax fruit under a glass shade, as
covered with dust as a Peruvian island with
guano, to folding-doors into the adjacent bed
room and to curtains tied back with discarded
bonnet ribbons. But it would have been bad
enough for Philip, now accustomed to better
things, to have had the prospect before him of
descending alone; but he was no longer alone;
he haa a wife, who, however, was absent,
and about whose return he was uncertain. And
he had with him the encumbrance of a baby;
and the encumbrance of a baby drew with it a
train of dissatisfied and departing nurses, one
after another, like the procession of kings re
vealed to Macbeth in Hecate's cave.
A babe in a lodging house is as ont of place
as was the ancestral Stanley found in an eagle's
nest on the top of a pine, of which the family
crest preserves a reminiscence
Uncle Jeremiah was restored to strength,
moral as well as physical. He no longer thought
of bis heart, he allowed it to manage its pulsa
tions unconsidered. He was heartily glad that
he had been saved committing an act of egre
gious folly, and he was prepared now to meet
Salome without a twinge. Common sense had
resumed the place of upper hand, and the tem
porary disturbance was over forever. To every
man comes at some period after he has begun
to decline a great horror of old age, an agoniz
ing clutch at the pleasures and f olies of youth,
a time ot intoxication when he is not responsi
ble for his acts, an intoxication produced by
fear lest life with lt3 roses should have passed
and left only thorns behind and decay. Men
whose lives have been spent in business, sub
jected to routine, who have no thought of love
and amusement, of laughter and idleness, are
suddenly roused to find themselves old and
standing out of the rush of merriment and the
sunshine of happiness. Then they make a
frantic effort to seize what hitherto they have
despised, to hug to their hearts what they have
formerly cast away. It is the S. Luke's sum
mer, a faint reflex of the departed glory and
warmth, a last smile before the arrival of the
wintry gales. No moment in life is so fraught
with danger as this at none is there more risk
of shipwreck to reputation.
Now that Jeremiah had passed through this
period, he could survey its risks with a smile
and a sense of self-pity and a little self-contempt
He who had always esteemed himself
strong had discovered that he could be weak,
and perhaps this lesson had made him more
lenient with the infirmities of others.
He returned to his friend John Dale, looking
older by some years, but also more hale. He
had touched the earth; but had risen from it
stronger than when he felt
On reaching Bridlington he learned from
Dale the state of matters at Mergatroyd.
While there a hasty note arrived for Mr. Dale
from Salome to say that she was leaving, with
her husband's consent," to be with heslster in
Switzerland, and both thought they could read
between the lines that there had been a fresh
difference with Philip.
Thereupon Jeremiah went to Mergatroyd
and came in unexpectedly and unannounced
Jeremiah Pennycomequick had not decided
what course to pursue with regard to his sister
and nephew. He was conscious that he had
played them a trick, that he had put them to a
test which he was not justified in applying to
He was angry with both with his half-sister
for the precipitation wjth which she had ac
cepted and certified his death, and with Philip
for his treatment of Salome He did not dis
guise from himself that his interference in
such a delicate matter as a quarrel, or an es
trangement, between husband and wife", might
make the breach worse.
When he arrived at Mergatroyd, he had not
resolved what course to take He sat up half
the night with Philip.
"You will find." said the latter with some
pride, "that I have maintained the business in
a healthy condition; it is not in the condition it
was during the Continental War, which affect
ed linen as well as other things, 'but that was
of its nature ephemeral. It rests on a sound
basis. Go through the books and satisfy your
self. My aunt," there was a tone of bitterness
when he added this: "My aunt watched the
conduct of the factory with a jealous eye and
drd not trust my accounts without a scrutiny.
As for what was in the bank, I can give an ac
count of every penny, and the securities, such
as came to me, are untouched."
"I will look into these matters at my leisure,"
said Jeremiah, "and if I find that matters are
as you say, I will let you down lightly; only, I
forewarn you, let down you will be. And now
a word about Salome"
"My wife." said Philip, shortly,
"Your wife exactly but "
"With regard to my wife, I brook no Inter
ference," said Philip, haughtily. "The mill Is
your affair, my domestic relations are my own."
"You cry out before you are hurt," retorted
Jeremiah; "I am not about to interfere. I
know that you are greatly disconcerted at the
discovery as to the parentage of your wife"
- Philip held up bis bead stiffly and closed his
lips tightly. He said nothing.
"I am not intermeddling," continued Jere
miah, "but I wish you to understand this that
1 have some claim to speak a word to Salome,
whom I have always that Is to say whom I
have loosed upon with fatherly regarl. The
two little girls grew up in my bouse, not a day
passed butlsaw them, I rode them as infants
at my knee, I bought them toys. They ran to
meet me cupboard love, of course when I
came from the mill, because I haa oranges or
sweet things in m v pocket 1 took pride in them
as they became dooming girls. I saw that they
were well taught After dinner they, soothed
mewiththeirmusic and when I was dull en
livened me with their prattle Have I then no
right to speak a word tor one or the other? I
have been to them more than a father. Their
father deserted tbem as soon as thoywere
bom, but I have nurtured and clothed them,
and seen to the development of their minds
and the disciplining of their characters. It is
absurd of you to deny me the right to speak.
To Interfere is not my purpose,r
"Very well, I will listen.''
"Thenlet me tell you this I know who their
father was. When Mrs. Cusworth came into
this bonse she very honestly told me the truth
abont them, and by my advice she kept her
counsel. 'It could do them only harm cloud
their joy.to know that they had a disreputable
father. We knew nothing ot tho man's subse
quent history. He bad disappeared, add might
be as we hoped, dead. Bnt, even it alive we
did not suppose be would care to come In quest
of bis twin daughters, and we trusted shonld

hdDcd.that he might not conjecture that the
children bad been adopted by their aunt and
that she had moved into Yorkshire toMerga
troyl. Neither Salome nor Janet knew who
their father was, or rather both supposed him
to be that worthy man who perished so lament
ably In my service. By what means he made

Philip interrupted his uncle. "That fellow
Schofleld never injured you as he did my
father. He not only ruined him, but he also
was the cause of his estrangement from you, or
rather, yours from him."
"Bear the man what grudge your will." said
Jeremiah, hastily, "bnt do not visit his offenses
on the head of his unoffendmg child."
Philip stood up. He was angry, but not to be
moved from his stiffness of manner.
"I think;" said he, "you will be tired. I am,
and probably bed is the best place for both.
As this is now jour house, andl am an intrud
er in it, I must ask permission to occupy my
room for to-night"
"And you a lawyer! Why you are In legal
possession, and till there is a reversal otthe
sentence of the Probate Court, I have no mere

He went to his room, but not to bed. He sat
at the window, where Salome had sat, in tha'
same chair, thinking with dark brow and se
lips. In one thing, his self-esteem was encour
aged. His uncle would see and be forced ts
acknowledge how thoroughly he had mastered.
the technicalities of the business and wltat.
what order and prudence he had carried it on.
He need not shrink from the closest examina-
tion into his conduct ot the factory. Every
thing was In order, the books well kept, several;
contracts in band. His uncle might dismiss'
him, but he could not say a word against his
integrity and business habits. He had taken
to himself nothing but what Mrs. Sidebottom,
as administratrix, had passed over to him.'
And as to his uncle's disappearance be tad''
done nothings as to the identification of tha
wrong body; he had held himself neutral, as la
capable of forming an opinion from inadequate'
acquaintance with his nncle If blame was te
be cast, It must fall heavily on Mrs. Bidebot-i
torn, but none would rest on him.
But how about the future? Philip now re-'
called the discomfiture, the monotonies, ths
irritations ot lodging-house life. Could he go
back to that? If his uncle offered to retain;
him In his house, could he consent? His pride
counseled him to go, his love of comfort ts;
Uncle Jeremiah had not invited him to re
main, but Philip thought it likely that ba
migbt His pride was galled In many ways. It
would be most painful to him to continue at
the factory, in which he had been a master,
henceforth in a subordinate position. Should
he return to the solicitor's firm at Nottingham,,
in which he had been before? That his serv
ices there were valued he was well aware; that
his resignation of a clerkship therein had
caused annoyance he was well aware; ha
knew, however, that his place was .filled, and
that if he returned to the office he would ba
obliged to take a lower desk. He might and
probably would, be advanced, but that would
require patience, and he must wait till a va
cancy occurred. Besides, it would be a humil
iation to have to solicit readmlssion, after ba
had left the office on stilts, as one who had
come into a fortune
Then what was to be done about his wife?
He conUnot maintain her and her child on a
junior clerk's wage Moreover, he had sent
her away when he occupied a lofty moral plat,
form, because connection with her sullied tho
fair name of Pennycomequick, and might In
jure the firm; and now that he n,o longer be
longed to the firm, but was a poor clerk of no
consequence In the world, was he to write to
her a letter of humble apology, and ask her to
return and share the beggary of a clerk's Ufa
in furnished lodgings with him, to unite with
him in the long, doleful battle against land
ladies? He had little doubt that Uncle Jere
miah would propose to make Salome an allow
ance, and that on this allowance together with
his salary they might be able to rub along. But
to accept such relief from Uncle Jeremiah,
granted through his wife his wife whom ha

Whatever way Philip considered the meal set
before him, he saw only homble pie, and hum
ble pie is the least appetizing of dishes. Philip
approached it as a sulky child does a morsel
which his nurse requires him to eat, without
consuming which be must expect no pudding.
He walked round it, be looked at it from near,'
then he drew back and considered it at long
range, then he touched It, then smelt It. then
turned his back on it, then with a grumble'
began to pick a few crumbs off It and put them
be tween his lips.
He went to bed at last, unresolved, angry
with himself, apgry with Salome, angry with
his uncle and angry with the baby who was
sobbing in the nursery.
Philip's experiences had all been made in
spiral form, they were ever turning about him
self, and though each revolution attained a
higher level, it was still made about the same
center. There is a family likeness In minds as
well as in noses and eyes and hair; and in this
Philip resembled his aunt, but with the differ
ence that he was governed by a strong sense of
rectitude, and that nothing would Induce him!
to deviate from what he believed to be just
wbereas his aunt's principles were flexible, and.
governed only by her own interests.
In these days in which we live socialism is in
the air, that Is to say, it is talked of and pro
fessed, but whether by any is practiced I am
inclined to question. For socialism I take to
mean every one for every one else, and no ona
for himself, and this is a condition contrary to
the nature of man, for men are more or less
waterspouts, vortices, attracting to themselves
whatever comes within their reach, and to bo
actuated by a centrifugal, not a centripetal
force is the negative of individuality.
