CHAPTER XLHL THE Gauntlet Cast.
When snpper was ended, the whole party
adjourned to the promenade outside the hotel,
where a fountain plashed in a basin, and in an
aviary on a perch stood a scowling, draggled
eagle, and beside the aviary were cages with
marmots, smelling abominably, and fettered on
a patch of grass was a miserable chamois that
seemed to have the mange.
It was delightful to walk in the crisp pure
air of evening without can or bonnet, and
watch the evening glow on the snow fields, and
listen to the tinkle of the bells as the cows
were driven home frem the Alpino pastures
and diverged to their several stables from the
main street. Beaple Yeo came out after the
party of Philip's table, not hatlcss. and his
puggary in the dusk fluttered like a gigantic
white moth. The chaplain for the summer
fiom England whs alo walking in the grounds
with his ncwlj-roarried wife:, a feeble youth
with a high pitched voice and a cackling laugh,
who had cu ltivatcd a military mustache, to
point out his imbecility, as the ass in the fable
assumed a lion's skin, but was revealed as an
ass on opening his mouth. A party of Germans
was feeding and talking vociferously. A
couple of Alpine Club men in knickerbockers,
carrying their alpenstocks proudly, trudged m
with a guide, the latter laden with their knap
sacks. Salome bad been walking, nestled against
Philip's side, not saying much, but feeling
happy, when her attention was attracted by the
wailing of a babe f i om one of the hotel windows.
"Philip, dear."' she said, "there is my pet. my
darlirg crying. I must tear myself away from
you and go to him. I know he wants me. He
is so cle er. He is quite aware that I am here,
and resents being rocked to sleep by the Swiss
nurse; he is protesting that nothing will make
him close his peepers but mamma's oice, and
a kis. And oh, dear, dear Philip, I don't like
to think it possible j ou can be unkind to any.
one there is Miss Durham behind us, all by
herself; do do say a word to her and be civil.
It was rather well, not quite rude, but strange
of ns paying no attention to her at supper, and
turning her out of her place. Philip, I could
not eat my supper I was so uncomfortable. I
would not hurt anyone's feelings willingly, and
I am sure Miss Durham has not been treated
with consideration; would you because I ask
you for my sake fcpeak to her when I am gone
She looked up cntreatingly in his eyes, loosed
her hand from his ann, and was gone.
Philip slackened his pace, then halted, to
allow the American lady to catch him up.
He would speak to her, and give her to under
stand, of course politely, that intimay with
his wife must cease. When she came leel
with him he raised his hat and said, "Abeau
f ul evening; a charming evening."
"Sol have already perceived, Mr. Penny
coraequlck." "What a surprise this green basin of valley
is to one emerging from the ravine ot the
Reuss," said Philip.
"Yes." with indifference; then, with anima
tion, "By the way, you were in the carriage
with Colonel Yeo.
"I beg pardon, he was in the carriage with

Philip stiffened his back. "Miss Durham, we
belong to distinct classes of society. With his

The Week Shows Increased Volume
in Produce Lines, but
A DOWNWARD TENDEXCiLN PRICES
Corn Scarce and IIijlier-Flour on the
COFFEES DB0P, SUGARS ADTAXCE
, Office of PiTTSnuitG Dispatch, 1
Saturday, June 29, 18S9. J
The week has been noted for the fresh ar
rivals of watermelons, cantaloups, black
berries and home-raised potatoes. "While
daily rains have more or less retarded trade,
tbe volume of business has Increased in almost
all produce lines. New potatoes are in abun
dant supply and at least 50c per barrel lower
than a week ago.
Said a leading produce commission man: "I
have handled a large quantity of stuff the
past week, but at such reduced prices that
margins will be very close. It begins to look as
though we are going to have another season
very much like last season, when stuff of every
kind was in oversupply. We last ear handled
more goods than ever we did. but made far less
money than in scarce years. These abundant
years are all right lor tbe consumer, but fur
nish poor pickings for producer and middle
men." Another said: "I have done better this week
than for a month or two past. While prices
are declining and prod s are small, it is a better
condition of things when we are handling large
quantities of stuff at even small profits than to
stand all tbe day Idle in the market places. I
have sold to-day close to 400 barrels of Tennes
see new potatoes, and am glad to be kept busy
even at small profits." .
The week has brought an upward movement
in tropical fruits. The approach of tbe Fourth
of July brings new activity to tne lemon and
Danana trade. Tbe latter has advanced SI per
bunch for firsts within a week.
One of our leading jobbers of cLeese, butter
and eggs said: "Ihere has been little change
in prices of oar goods this week, but markets
have been active and firm for cheese and eggs.
Our cheese sales lor the week will be not less
than 2.000 boxes. Butter has been quiet. Coun
try rolls have been coming in in larger quantity
than demand warranted, and the result has
been easy markets all along butter lines."
Receipts in tbe line of grain and hay are be
yond the wants of trade, with corn as the ex
ception. There has been a scarcity and a con
sequent upward movement of corn all tbe
week. Fhur, too, has joined in theupward
drift. The price for which the best spring
patents can be laid down for here, in wood, is
fully 35c per barrel aboro the lowest point
touched a week or two ago. Some brands in
search of trade were offered here as low as
530. and standard brands could, within a few
weeks, be laid down at to 40. Ten days arro the
situation was decidedly in the bujer's favor.
Now the situation i reversed. Hie best offer
of Minneapolis mills this week is5 75 delivered
here in carload lots. While wholesale rates
remain unchanged, tbe wholesaler who buys
bis stock now must pay at least 25c per barrel
more than he was required to pay a couple of
weeks ago. Besides advance in prices, there is
tnu-b greiter activity to trade. Said one
jobber: "I have sold fully one-third more flour
this week tliao last." and so 6av they all.
An advance In flour cannot be long delayed
from present appearances. It is one of the
freaks of business human nature that when
products are dirt cheat) there is a disposition
to buy sparingly. Now that there is an active
and upward movement flour buyers are more
Inclined to invest. In connection with tbe
gram trade, it Is pleasant to note among the
events of the neck n shipment of elgnttoten
carloads of shelled corn from that wonderfully
Jrolific county of Illinois, Champagne, to the
'ltuliurg Grain Exchange to be sold for the
benefit of the sufferers of the Conemaugh
Groceries1 nrd Frovlslonx.
The features of the grocery trade for the
week are the rise In sugar and drop in coffee.
The view of jobbers here is that both move
ments are largely speculative. Sugar has
failed to make Its dally advance for a few davs,
but is so very firm that a rise is grnerally
looked for at an early day. Coffee options have
partiaUv recovered from the drop of a day or
two, but markets close weak for roasted at a
sure you. I am thankful to say I belong to that
middle class which works for its living honor
ably, diligently, and finds its pleasure and its
pride in Industry,"
"And Colonel YeoT
"Oh! I assure you hi does not soil his fingers
with honest trade or business."
"You do not want to know hini?"
"I have not the smallest ambition."
After a pause, during Which neither spoke,
Philip resumed. "There are subjects that are
distasteful to me; this is one."
'I see," said Miss Durham, "you are a Radi
cal." "We will let the subject drop," said Philip.
"This air is delightful to me after the smoke of
a Yorkshire manufacturing district."
"It is really surprising how fresh, notwith
standing, your wife is," answered the Chicago
Philip turned sharply round and looked at
her. "Fresh!" he repeated. He did not under
stand what her meaning was; fresh in com
plexion or that her character was green and
. "Her freshness is quite delightful," added
Then Philip's anger broke loose. He was of
fended at any remark being made on Salome
by a person of whom he knew nothing.
"Indeed perhaps so. And it is precisely
this freshness, this generosity of mind, this ig
norance of the world, welch leads her to ex'
tend the hand of fellowship to to anyone
to those who may not be as fresh as herself
who may be quite the reverse."
Miss Durham stood with her face gleaming
"I know, sir, very well what you mean. You
know that I am alone, without a man a father,
brother or husband by to protect me from in
sult, and you take this advantage to address
She revolved on her heel and walked hastily
back to the hotel.
Philip stood rooted to the spot.
What had he doner What shadow of a right
had he to address an inoffensive girl with such
inipert'nence? A girl who had done him no
harm, and of whom he knew nothing, and who,
for aught be knew to the contrary, might be as
respectable, high-minded and well-connected
as the best lady in America. She had been
alone in this foreign corner shut out from so
cial intercourse with her fellow countrymen,
and she had formed an acquaintance with his
wife, bis wife's sister and the Labarte girls.
"What right had he to step in and thrust her out
of association with them?
He had done what he determined, but done
it in so clumsy a manner as to put himself in
the wrong, make himself who stood on punc
tilio, appear an unlicked bear. He had behaved
to an unprotected, young and beautiful girl in
a manner that would have disgraced the rudest
artisan, in a manner that he knew not one of
his honest Yorkshire workmen in his factory
would have dared to behave.
CHAPTER XLIV.-AN D PICKED Up,
Matters that look serious at night shrink to
trifling significance in the morning. Philip
rose refreshed by sleep, with a buoyancy of
heart he had not experienced for many months,
and a resolution to enjoy his holiday now that
he was taking one. How often had he longed
for the chance of making an excursion on the
continent, of seeing the snowy ranges of the
Alps and studying fresh aspects of human life.
Sow the opportunity had come, and he must
make the most of it. His prospects at home
were not such as to discourage him; be was no
longer the ruling manager of the Pennycome
qnick firm, but he was not going to be kicked
out of the concern as he had at first feared."
Uncle Jeremiah purposed to take htm into
partnership, make him working partner, and
decline of He since the beginning of the week.
There is practlcallyjio changein the price of
hog products since last week. Markets are not
as actn e as they usually are at this time of tbe
ear. Damp weather has bad an effect in retard
ing trade. If the J ulj and August sun will get
in its expected work and give us plenty of hot
dry weather, the provision trade will easily
make up for lost time In June.
HOUSES TOO SLOW
To Suit Modern Ideas of Travel, and They
Must Go to the Rear.
A rapid transit boom has struck Pitts
burg with unprecedented violence, and
threatens to seize upon every street in the
city nay, more, so great is the number of
schemes that have been chartered, projected
and talked about in a less definite way that
there is a dearth of streets to accommodate
tbem all, and it is seriously contemplated to
open up a number of new ones to supply the
Eapid transit is all right, but there is
danger of overdoing it, to say nothing of in
conveniencing the public by establishing
lines where they are not necessary and
would be in the way of improvement. This
superabundance of a good thing might, in
some cases, cost more than it amounted to.
The ambition to be identified with rapid transit
is altogether praiseworthy, but the money end
of the business should not be overlooked. As
too many cooks spoil the broth, so too mueh of
rapid transit might endanger dividends and in
volve financial trouble. True enough, tbe city
is growing and travel increasing, but searcely
in a ratio corresponding to the number of
projects for handling It. With rapid transit
on every street and some of the alleys, as pro
posed, it seems doubtful if there will be
enough patronage for all, in which case the
weakest would go to tbe wall. Thus money
v. ould be needlessly wasted, and possibly good
Intentions nipped in the bud.
Bnt, on the other hand, some good might
come of thus crowding the market by assisting
to open up thinly settled districts and by re
ducing fares to a very low point, which would
not be an unmixed evil, and tbe people could
stand it if tbe companies could, but it might
be hard on those who furnished tbe cash to
make low fares possible.
Tbe boom will probably run Its course, what
ever that may be, with or without opposition,
but, in the meantime, measures should betaken
to reserve a few of tbe streets such as Forbes
and Diamond, in Pittsburg, and Ridge avenue,
Allegheny, so as to have unrestricted access to
the rural regions, and where pedestrians could
promenade and horsemen exhibit the paces of
their flyers with none to molest or make them
The business feature of the week was a sur
prising panic in oil on Monday, which sent the
price np from 83 to f 1 03 in about 15 minutes,
from which it as quickly dropped ten points,

adoption of the plan for trading in futures.

The Americans are the most feverish and
restless set of people lu the world. The secret
of this is to be found in the fear that some
other firm aroun4 the comer, or across the
water, or on the other side of the globe, wUl

doing. Tbe dealer watches the shipments of
goods from his neighbor's store. The manu

In all probability ha would be better off than
with Mrs. Bidebottom consuming more than
half the profits and contributing nothing.
He had been tired with his journey yester
day. Irritated at finding Beaple Yeo in bis
proximity, and he had given way to his irrita
tion and spoken uncourteously to an American
lady. What of that? Who was she to take
offense at what he said T If she were angered
she must swallow her wrath. She had vexed
him by pushing herself into the acquaintance
of his wife. If people will climb over hedges
they must expect scratches. If requisite he
could apologize, and the thing was over. Miss
Durham had made a remark which he consid
ered a slight passed on his wife, and he was
right to resent it. If Bhe had made a thrust
with an unguarded foil it was not likely that be

He came down stairs feeling cheerful and on

a walk that day with Salome to the Ober Alp,
and pick gentians and Alpenrose, and in prep
aration for the walk, he went to the collection
of carved work, photographs, and Alpine
paraphernalia exhibited in the salle-a-manger
by the head waiter for sale, and bought himself
a stout walking stick with an artificial chamois
horn as handle. Then he strolled out into the
village street, and looked in at the shop win
dows. There was only one shop that interested
him, it contained crystals smoked and clear,
and specimens of the rocks on the St. Gothard
pass, collections of dried flowers and photo
graphs. When he returned to the Inn he fonnd that
his party was in the salle awaiting him. The
usual massive white coffee cups, heap of rolls
all crust outside and bubbles within, wafers of
butter, and artificial honey were on table.
A German lady was prowling about the room
with her bead so tumbled that it was hard to
believe she bad dressed her hair since leaving
her bed, and the curate was there also, ambling
round his bride and squeaking forth entreaties
that she would allow him to order her eggs for
breakfast. Philip was heartily glad that he
sat along with his party at one table, in the al
cove. Miss Durham was not there.
On inquiry Salome learned that she had or
dered breakfast to be taken to her room.
"So much the Letter," said Philip.
"My dear, surely you made friends yesterday
evening alter I left.'1
"Come to table." said Philip, and then "on
the contrary, I don't know qmte how it came
about, but something I said gave her um
brage, and the flew away in a rage. I suppose
I offended her. It does not matter. Pass me
"It does not matter! Oh, Philip!"
"Given Miss Durham offense!" exclaimed
Mrs. Sldebottom. "But she is worth thou
sands. How could you be so indiscreet?"
"She is so charming," said Janet-
"So amiable," murmured Claudine Labarte.
"Mais, quelle gaucherle," whispered the pe
nultimate Labarte to the youngest sister.
Then cntued a silence. Philip looked from
one to another. Already a cloud had come
into his clear sky.
Philip said sternly: "Pass me the butter."
Those who seemed least concerned were the
captain and Janet, who sat together and were
engrossed in little jokes that passed between
tli em, and were not heard or regarded by the
rest of the company.
"This is very unfortunate," said Mrs. Side
bottom, "for we had made a plan to go to the
Hospice together, and she would have paid her
share of the carriage."
Salome looked into her plate; her color came
and went. She slid her band Into that of her
husband, and whispered, "I did not mean to
reproach you. I am sure you were right."
"I was right," answered Philip; "something
she said appeared to x?e a reflection on you
and I fired up. I am your husband, and am
bound to do sc"
"lam quite sure, then, you misunderstood
her," said Salome, "dear Miss Durham could
not no, I do not mean that would not say a
word against me. Of course 1 know 1 have
plenty of faults, and she cannot have failed to
observe tbem; bnt she would not dream of
alluding to them, least of all to you."
"That Is possible," answered Philip. "And I
wfL say or do something to pass it off. But, I
hope you see that I did the correct thing in
taking your part, even If no slight was in
ternled." -Of course, Philip."
Then Salome stood up and said: "I will go to
due worry and unnecessary competition. Fre

things were allowed to take their own course it
would be better. The struggle to undersell

When Salome was gone, Philip spoke to the
eldest Labarte girl, but found her uninterest

ill-concealed dissatisfaction. He- bad come to
Andennatt and spoiled their party. They had
been cheerful and united before. Miss Dur
ham had been infinitely amusing, and now,
Philip had introduced discord, was wooden and
weariful. They wished he had remained at
home in smoky, foggy England; if he came he
sboqld have left the fog and chill behind him,
instead of diffusing it over a contented and
merry party. Mrs. Sldebottom had left the
table to haggle with the head waiter over a
paper-cutter with a chamois leg as handle, that
she wanted to buy and send as a present to
Jeremiah, but was indisposed to pay for it the
price asked by the waiter.
"But, madam, ' said the waiter, "if you donot
take him at de price. Mademoiselle Durham
vlli; she have admired and wanted to buy him,
and she goes away to-day."
"Miss Durham going!" exclaimed Mrs. Side
bottom, and rushed back to the table to an
nounce the news. "Why who will go halves
with us in vehicles! This is your doing, Philip.
You have offended her, and are driving her
The announcement produced silence; and all
eyes were turned on Philip, those of the La
barte girls with undisguised indignation. Even
the Captain and Janet ceased their conversa
tion. An angel may have passed through the
room, but he must have been a crippled one,
so long did he take in traversing it; nor can'he
have been a good one, so little light and cheer
fulness did he diffuse.
"Weill said Philip, 'what if she is going?
That is no concern of ours." v
Then he stood up and left the room. He was
in an unamiable mood. The party did not
show him the consideration that was due to
him, and found fault with him about trifles.
He left the hotel, and wandered to the aviary,
where he remained contemplating the scowling
eagle. The bird perhaps recognized a similar
ity of mood in his visitor, for he turned his
head, ruffled his feathers, and looked atPhillp.
"Well," said Philip, "that is tho king of tbs
birds, is it? To my mind a bumptious, ill-conditioned,
dissatisfied, and uninteresting fowl."
Then ho moved in front of the marmot cage.
"And these are marmots, that spend more than
half their life in sleep. Very like Lambert
Sldebottom or Pennycomequlck, as he is
pleased to call himself now."
He looked at the eagle again. "Pshaw!
riuck him of his self -consciousness as Aquila
and what is he? What is her'
Then he wandered away among the flower
beds and bushes of syringa without a purpose,
grumbling to himself at the manners of those
Labartes, and the figures that Lambert and
Janet made, laughing over Inane jokes, and re
gretting that be had allowed Salome to go In
search of the Chicago lady.
Salome in the meantime bad hastened to her
friend's room, the number of which she knew,
and found her packing her portmanteau and
dress boxes. The room was strewn with
"But," exclaimed Salome on entering,
"What is the meaning df this? Miss Durham!
You are surely not going to leave?"
"Certainly I am." answered the American
lady. "I have been Insulted here, and shall

and this and other matters had just put him in
a condition ot nervous excitement. If you
wish it, be will explain, but surely you will take
my word that no Impertinence was Intended."
"Miss Durham looked at Salome steadily.
"The word has been said." '
"But," pleaded Salome, "my husband will
unsay it. I entreat you forget and forgive."
"I cannot It is not in my nature."
"Not forgive? Oh, Miss Durham, half the
sweetness and happiness of life Is made up of
"Tastes differ," said the American, and
stooped to her work again.
Salome went to her and arrested her hands.

"i will not, I cannot allow you to go. I
should ever feel an ache in my heart to think
that you had gone away without reconcilia
tion." Half laughing, halt crying, she added:
"I thought that if it could possibly be that you
and my husband should meet you would be
come close friends; but I never supposed he
would come out here to me I mean I did not
think he could leave his business. And now
that he is here, instead of making friends with
you, a quarrel is picked and you axe almost
"Quite," said Miss Durham, coolly.
"Not so with him. If be knew bow to obtain
your forgiveness he would do that thing. Is
there no way in which you can be satisfied?"
"Oh, yes, by obtaining satisfaction."
Salome looked at ber. The handsome face
was much altered, there was a bitterness and
scorn in it she had never seen before. The dark
eyebrows were drawn together, forming a som
ber, threatening bar across her face above ber
splendid eyes. '
"When a man has offended another, he that
is injured calls out the offender, and there is
an exchange of pistol shots. Had I here any
one who belonged to me. anyone to standby
me and defend my character, I would send him
with a challenge to your husband and they
would fight tha matter out on the green sward
by the chapel, or better," she laughed, "on the
Devil's bridge. But as I have neither father,
nor brother, nor husband, I must fight tor my
own honor, or "
"Or what. Miss Durham?"
"Or run away."
Both were silent: presently Salome laughed a
littlo nervously, and said, "But you never fight?
no woman gbts."
"Does 6he notr'
"Not with pistols."
"Nor with swords.''
"Then with whatr'
"With her proper weapons."
"You may be quite sure my husband would
throw down bis arms and yield at discretion."
"I have little doubt."
Salome closed the box on which Miss Dur
ham had been engaged, and seated herself
unonit. Then she looked up with childlike
entreaty into ber friend's face, and Said:
"1 will not allow you to go. We had schemed
to have such pleasant excursions together.
We have been so happy since we have known
each other, and 1 have not yet had the
delight of showing you my baby my best
"You will not let me run away ?"
"No, no ! You will forget this little affair; it
was nothing. Come and be with us again. My
husband is a great reader, and knows a great
deal about things of which I am ignorant, and
you have traveled and seen so much that your
society will interest him Immensely. Oh, do
stay; do not go away."
The American girl went to the window,
leaned both her arms folded on it, and looked
out. She could see into the garden, and she
observed Philip there, standing before the
eagle's cage. He bad a little twig in his band,
and he was thrusting it between the bars at
the bird. She turned and said to Salome. "No
I will go There are several reasons which
urge me to go. The insult which I received from
your husband for one and already he had
allowed me to see that he disliked and despised
"No, indeed," interrupted Salome. "I had
written to blm and in all my letters about you,
and perhaps he was a little jealous of you."
"Jealous of me?"
"It is a fancy of mine." Salome lowered her
"O you fresh, you green dear!" laughek Miss
Durham. "Do you know what jealousy IsT"
"By experience? No."
"Come," said the American girl, seating her
self beside ber on the same box, still with
folded arms, resting now on ber lap. "Cornel
Supposing that I, instead of being bated and
despised by your husband, were admired an &
loved by him. Would you not be madly jeal
Salome looked round at her without flinch
ing. "Admire you he might, but love you "
"More than he loved you."
"He could not do it."
The girl burst into a mocking laugh. "What,
you also bold me cheap, think there is nothing
in me beside you beside you to lovo."
"On the contrary," answered Salome, crim

Bad Reports From the Northwest and
Southern Germany Cause n Nervous
Feeling In tbe Wheat Pit
Prices Drop a Trifle.
Chicago. Trading was quite activein wheat
Saturday.and the feelingdeveloped was nervous
and unsettled. At times indications pointed
strongly to tbe market going higher, and again
showed signs of weakness. Fluctuations were
not large. Jnly advanced o, receded lHe,
and closed Kc lower than yesterday. August
advanced c. and closed c lower. December
was tbe strongest on the list early, and ad
vanced c. then became weak, declining lc,
and closed c lower than yesterday.
Tbe influences governing the market were
of about the same tenor as received the past
few days, excepting that tbe advices from the
Northwest represent the crop in a worse condi
tion than heretofore. Speculative buying lis
based principally upon these reports. Hot
winds were again reported, and some sections
favored with slight rains.
The short interest took back to the winter
wheat, wbich they claim is turning out well,
with tbe exception, perhaps, of some localities.
It is spring wheat against winter wheat which
causes the changing conditions of tbe market
News was received of damage to crops In
Southern Germany by recent heavy rains. For
eign market advices were more encouraging.
Corn ruled moderately active, though at times
tbe market was quite dull, fluctuations being
within a narrow range and trading chiefly of a,
local character. 1 be feeling was rather easy
early In the day, but as tbe session advanced a
better tone was apparent, Tbe market opened
a shade under tbe closing prices of yesterday,
was easy for a time, due mainly to the fine
weather and to tbe receipts being over the esti
mates. At the decline a good demand existed
for tbe near futures, shippers purchasing fair
quantities and tho market advanced c, ruled
Bteady and closed a shade better than yester
day. In oats a liberal business was transacted
within an exceedingly narrow range.
Mess pork was moderately active early, but
dullness prevailed later. An unsettled feeling
existed and opening sales were at 5c decline.
After a further recession of 2c a better tone
developed. Buyers took hold quite liberally,
and prices advanced 12c, but outside figures
were not maintained at the close.
