For the moment It was a lellef. Ho

Tomaso," she vthlsteied, "I forgot thut
lie was here, Jullona.."
"He has gone, Rita," I whlspeied. "I
fear lie has gone In angei , and he saved
my life "
"In angei '" she exclaimed, looking
round, "but why In anger, Jullano?"
"Can you not guess, Rita.'" I said,
looking Into those gloilous eyes, and
thinking to mjself, what wonder If he
loed what wonder If lie weie des
peiate'' I saw the Idea dawn In her eves as I
J,a7ed Into them, and as it dawned I
siyv that the blood ebbed away fioni
lier face, le.n Ing her pale. I looked at
lier In slrpilbe, but, befoie I had time to
toiment myself with any lovei's iues
tlonlngs as to wliat It meant, she
clasped her hands In quick emotion.
"Oh, no not that, Jullano; bay It Is
not that "
There was o much feeling, so much
that was almost like fear. In lier eyes,
as she looked in my face, that I was
conscious of some suipiise, but I could
only try to soothe her at the moment.
"You could not help It, Rita, I know,
love," I whispered.
"All, but he will hate you, Jullano
and none can hate like Tomaso. He
will denounce you for a. rebel. He has
inlluence; lie has power." And she
wrung her hands together, the imago
of bewlldeiment and fear.
"He'' I exclaimed. He? Thomp
son? You aie wrong you must be
"Wiong, Jullano? Ah, no! How can
I be wiong? It is you at -whom he will
stilKe. Has lie not done It befoie? Is
lie not the ft lend of the captain genei
ul.' Ah, no, Jullano!" she said, as lover
like I tiled to soothe liei "not now. It
is bweet, but not now. Let us seek my
father and tell him all; it may be that
lie can save you."
1 As she spoke, she turned quickly from
the room. I followed her, my mind In
an unenviable- state of confusion. A
moment before I had been all but re
pioachlng myself for the pain I had
given my ft lend Thompson the man
who had saved my life the loyal
partisan of involutional y Cuba the
trusted pilot of our expedition and
now he seemed to have gone; and in
Ills place vas Tomaso, the triends, and,
no doubt, tool, of Weyler the enemy,
and theieforo the tieaclierous enemy
of the lebels. I am not suipiised that
I was confused. Looking back on it all
now, I am almost suipiised that I was
not more utteily confused than I was.
We found the Don in the full enjoy
ment of his evening smoke. He had al
Muys been a warm filend of mine, yet
it was with a look In which, bewllder-
"I HATH HIM!" '
ment was largely mingled with fear
that he listened to the toirent of ex
planation in which Margailta pouied
out her history of what had taken
place. As I watched his expiesslvo
face, I could not help suspecting that
the tear was not wholly on my acocunt,
and It gave me a still more unpleasant
feeling as to my own prospects, when
It dawned upon me that even so inllu
pntlal a merchant of Havana as Don
Oustellano had reason to fear my com
ade Thompson, and what he might see
lit to do in his anger.
To do him justice, however, the Don
welcomed 'mo waimly, even after he
must have known fiom his daughters
headlong tale how matteis stood be
tween us. His Hist question, however,
enabled me to let In a Hood of new light
pn the situation, "Hut how did you
come to Havana?" he asked. I told him
In as few wouls ns possible, for I must
admit that each moment there was
Ki owing upon me the sense of my dan
ger at the hands of this man whom I
had known as Thompson, and who, for
Hinuo unaccountable ieason, had taken
It into hU head to save me fiom the
death to which, no doubt, he hud been
peifectly willing to consign the test of
"Ah, you mad Americans," was the
Don's comment. "Why should you have
Hugh H. Lusk.
como to our unhappy Island; and conio
back, too, as If to seek death?"
Margarita had drunk hi every word
as I spoke, and she tinned her eyes full
of question and repioich on me, ns her
father spoke. Then the llgh't came back
Into het eyes till they shone like dia
monds, and the hot blood flushed her
cheekB once mote, as she exclaimed;
"Oh, fathar, save him from Tomaso. It
was foi me he came."
The Don smiled as he looked down at
the troubled face of his only child, now
lifted to his in Impassioned appeal;
then he frowned as tho full dllllculty of
tho situation came over him. "Ah!" he
exolultnod, "vou chlldten you chil
dien! Hut I must think. This is not an
easy thing, look you, my young filend
Margmlta Is right as to tills Tomaso.
IT WAS THE FACC OP MY
Ills fathei was employed by me for
years, and was faithful, but the son is
dangerous I would gladlj' have for
bidden him to come heie, but I knew It
would be unsafe, for he has the ear of
the captaln-genernl, by whom lie Is
trusted as an agent. Yet I think not he
will willingly Injure me if only" and
heie a smile bioke up the gravity ot
his face. "No, It Is at you he will aim.
It may even be that he will repiesent
himself as hav Ing led jou here; but how
to save you that Is the question."
The Don went on slowly talklng.as If
thinking to himself, and, In spite of the
near concern I had in his conclusions,
I found myself stealing glances at
Margailta, who still clung to her
father's aim, as If In the hope of quick
ening his inteiest on my behalf by the
sott touch of her little hands on his
sleev e. He stopped and seemed to think
foi a minute; and hib daughter looked
l ound and f row ned at me, w hen she saw
that my thoughts weie not fixed on
what he had been saying, and shook her
head at me with a gestuie of warning.
"Yes," the Don began again, "I could,
Indeed, get you removed In a vessel of
mj' ow n that leaves tonight, but, then,
how could we escape Tomaso? Then,
Indeed, he would divulge our connection
and he revenged on us, even if he could
not also stop you."
"Not for the woild, Don Castellano,"
I exclaimed, "If anjone Is to suffer, it
must be me, and me alone."
Maigailta giasped her fathers aim
moie tightly, and looked up into his
face, but bhe said nothing. The Don
held up his hand depiecatingly to me.
"Stay," he said. "Stay, chlldien. Why
Is it that youth is ever so hot and
hasty ?" He paused again, and his eyes
lesied on his daughters face for a mo
ment. Then he spoke as If he had made
up his mind, at the bame time lay ing his
hand softly on Margailta's glossy halt.
"Y es, it w 111 be best so. In any case, w e
must risk something. But there is not
a moment to lose. You will stay here
while I anange for safe men to get a
boat. iead to go off to Cabelleio,
and you will be ready to go the moment
I return," he added, glancing quickly
at me and then at his daughter.
In another moment the worthy Don
had disengaged himself gently and left
the loom. Can I attempt to tell what
passed between us? At first, Indeed, I
could not, if I tried. All I could do was
to soothe, by such Instinctive means as
natural instinct supplies to lovers, of
touch and whispered word, which Imply
so little and j'et so much, my companion
who heemed for the tlrst ime to feel the
full bitterness of the disappointment
I tiled to talk of the future, but the
piesent seemed toswalloy It up; I tiled
to assui e her that all w ould be w ell, but
she only shrank and tiembled, as she
whlspeied, in little, Hutteilng accents:
"Jullano oh, Jullano!"
"Hut, Rita, you will he true to me
we will bo tiue to one another and
then nothing can teally pait us. It Is
only If you shall love another not now,
of com be, but at any time heieafter
that I should leallj' lose you." She
shuddered and looked at me with eye3
full of leproach.
"Ah, not, Tomaso," I said; "I don't
mean anj thing so low as that. Hut
yeais, peihaps long years hence, If some
man not a spy and a traitor should
come; ah, then, Rita, If you should."
She seemed not to have heaid the last
few woids, for she diew herself elect
with a sudden motion, and her eyes
seemed to flash and blaze
"Tomaso!" She pronounced the name
with a blttei ness of contempt and
hated such us I could not huvo sup
posed It possible to throw Into a single
woid; "Tomaso! Spy traitor mur
deier! Name not the base cieutuie In
my presence. I abhor myself now that
I should ever have endured his hateful
ptesence I hate lilmt I shall hate him
I had been spellbound by tho in
tensity of her passion, and peihaps a
little by her glorious eyes, seen In this
new light, and I cannot Imagine what
Btiong magnetic force It could have
been that had power to draw my eyes
ftom her face to where, behind her,
jet to one side, the window stood open
on the piazza. There there, framed In
the opening, the bright light on his
face, thu dark background of the palms
and shrubs behind him, stood the fig
ure ot my conuade Thompson. "When
last I had seen that face, it had shocked
me In its drawn Intensity of sufteilng,
but now the effect was dlffeicnt. It
seemed to me no longer human. There
was pain, indeed, pain that was houl
ble, but no longer of that kind that In
vokes sympathy. Malice the most In
tense, blttei ness the most llerce, yet,
and triumph the most unbounded. Ills )
face was like a book he had heard It
all! It was but a second or two, and It
seemed as If we both stood as If bound
by a spell; a look like that of a mad
man or a demon came over his face; he
threw his arms out wildly, as If In
denunciation, and, with one fierce, low
cut so, that sounded like the giowl of a
beast of prey, he turned and dashed
headlong fiom the spot. "With a ciy
of sudden alatm Margatlta had turned
and seen his Hying flguie, and for a mo
ment I thought she would have lushed
after him. 1 seized her as she leached
the door, and at that veiy moment my
eais cought the quick tiamp of soldiers
coming tlnougli -the giounds. They
must have heaid her crj. even If It was
possiblo that the tialtor, in his '-antlo
excitement, had missed them. A cold
chill went tlnougli me. It was useless
to lly theie was nothing to be done.
The thought Hashed through my
brain like a Hash of lightning; almost
at the same moment, a voice challenged
In the quick, peiemptory tone of com
mand, and, the next, a loud, sham vol
ley of a dozen rifles iang out on the still
ness of the night. We stood as If we
had been turned to stone, listening with
every sense for what was to come next
but It seemed as If nothing was going
to happen. The taint sound of what
might have been a footstep; a low sound
that might have been a distant whls
peilng, and nothing more.
We waited our eyes llxed on each
other's faces Suddenly there was an
oider given once moie; and then, as we
listened, step by step, the footsteps of
the soldiers died nway.
"What had happened? After a long
pause we stole cut with pale faces on to
the piazza; then, as If compelled, step
by step down the avenue; then, as If
led by some unerring Instinct, across
the grass and beneath the soft shadows
of the giaceful diooplng palms and
theie, as it by common consent, we
paused. Taither on only a few yards
faither on theie was something daik
lying undr the deeper shadows. We
stood for seveial minutes as if afiald to
move almost afiald to breathe and
then I lecoveied sulllclontly to go foi
waid. The moon was rising at last, and, as I
stood beside that silent heap, her Hist
light glanced ftom the east under the
shadows of the trees I laid my hand
on It; I stooped and turned it over.
The Hist lays of silver light fell on the
ghastlv face It was the face of my

It would undoubtedly form an Inter
esting anthology If a contemporary
should have taken the trouble to pre
pare a collection of the stump-speech
blunders made duilng the last political
campaign. As for our own city we
heard of only one made In the course
of a shoit address to worklngmen. The
speaker, a silver advocate, noticing a
number of Frenchmen among his audi
ence while he was denouncing the Btlt
Ish "Intherfeienco In America's
llnances," suddenly exclaimed, "And
did not Napoleon the Great, even In his
day, say of the English that they were
'a nation of shop-lifters?' "
"Half the fun of life," says the col
lector of a Roquet of Hlundeis, "c,omes

laugh at the mistakes of people who

Amusing slips of the tongue abound,
and even practiced oiatois aie not
above making them. An English states
man Is lepoited to have said not long
ago In a public speech: "Let It be
know n, gentlemen, that of these just
demands we abate' not one jit or tot
tle." Another English lawyer, examining a
witness who said he found the pilsoneis
In bed with their clothes on, asked,
steinly: "Do you mean to say that
they had gone to boot with their beds
A speaker at a parochial council pre
llmlnaiy meeting, meaning to be elo
quently eulogistic of his working class
auditors, mixed the matter a bit when
he said: "I will call you by the noblest
name that you have. You aie tons of
Manj ludicrous blunders have been
made In the couise of the chinch ser
vice by neivous clergymen, but theie
can haully be lecorded a more comical
one than that w lilch startled a London
congregation the other day, when the
olllclating curate announced "Hymn
four and peven pence halfpenny." In
his nervousness he had confused the
offeiatoiy total of the previous Sun
day with the hymn figures.
It was an Ameilcan who, lecturing
one evening, said: "Patents, jou may
have chlldien, or. If not, your daugh
ters may have."
When an Iilsh doctor reproved a
filend for his tco liberal use of biandy,
"Bah," sild he, "I've diank of It since
I was a boy, and I'm CO." "Very like
ly," replied the doctor, "but If you hud
never drank of It, peihaps you would
now be 70."
It was at an art exhibition, and two
old ladles, fiesh fiom the country, were
examining with great Interest the
statue of a young Gieek, underneath
which was insciibed the words, "Exe
cuted In TenaCotta." "Where IsTeira
Cotta?" asked the elder of the two,
turning to her companion. "I haven't
tho least idea," replied the other, "I
nevei heard of the place before." "Ah,
well," obscived the Hist speaker, "It
doesn't much slgnlfj'. The poor man
who was executed there is none the
less to be pitied, wheiever It may be."
There are blunders of the species
"bull" which have not been boin in lie
land. It was a Scotch woman who said
that the butcher of her town only killed
half a beast at a time. It was a Dutch
man who said a pig had no maiks on
Its ears except a long tail. It was a

At ono of the flibt examinations for
sanllaiy Inspectors In England theie
weie some very cuilous leplles handed
In. One candidate, asked what a death
rate was, leplled that It was a late
levied on the living to support the ceme
teries. Another, leplylng to a ques
tion about the willful exposure of a
pei son sufteiing fiom an Infectious dis

any conveyance exceot a hearse with
out flist Infoimlng'the dilvei." Anotli
ei, In leply to the same question, laid
it down as Impel atlve that "a peison

Theie has been In bookish citcles of
late some complaint that the book
trade is passing out of the hands of
men of culture Into those of an Infeil
or class of men, who kiiow little and
caie less about" the books thej' handle.
Point Is given to this accusation by
the following example among many
that have been noted by book buyers.
A gentleman staying at a well known
seaside town made Inqtlliy at a book
shop for the "Autocrat ot tho Bteak
fast Table," when the vendor, replying
that he had not got a copy, clenched
his positive assurance by saying that
all the cookery books were kept to
gether, nnd It was not among them.
The librarians of the now numerous
public llbrailes find the tedium of their
labors a little telleved by the blunders
made by their unlearned patrons when
asking for books. There is no book
that seems to have caused such pU7zle
ment to readers as Miss Hat radon's
"Ships That Pass in the Night." It
has figured In the lequests of would
be readeis as "Ships That Speak as
They Pass By." "Ships That We Pass,"
"Ships That Sail In the Night," "Ships
Thut Puss Through the Night," "Ships
That the Night Passes By," und "The
Ship Book," and these lire only a few
of the vailallons. "The Heavenly
Twins" has been asked foi as "The
Heavenly Angels" and "The Heavenly
Wings," while poor "Trilby" has fig
ured as "Little Trilby," "Little Blllee"
and even as "Tilplets."
TIIE LATE JOHN CHAMBERLIN.
In the London Chat and Gossip Mr.
Howaul Paul writes: "The European
f i lends of the late John Chambeilln,
and he had many, weie pained to read
of his sudden death at Sutatoga He
was a gout met, and the best known
hotel keeper In Washington. His tes
taurant had a national leputatlon, but
the pi Ices were exceptionally high.
Apropos of this, Colonel Tom Ochlltiee
and a young friend from Texas were
about to dine. The latter expicssed a
strong deslie to paituke of a portei
house steak and fried onions, but bald
that he could not do so, as he was go
ing to the theater with some ladles and
his breath might give him away.
"Don't be afraid, my friend," said
Colonel Ochlltiee, "go light ahead, and
have jour steak and onions. When
jou get joui bill for the meal, It will
take your bieath away."
BISMARCK'S SILVER LETTER.
Prince Blsmaick has no lack of that
punctuality which Is said to be the po
liteness of pi luces. All letteis arriv
ing at rieldeilchsiuh are piomptlj re
plied to If an answer Is lequlied, but of
course not befoie they have been ac
cepted and lead.
It seems that In the United States
much suipiise has been manifested that
the letter of the governor of Texas on
the sliver question, dated July 1, was
not replied to befoie August 24. The
reason of this beeming delay Is ex
plained In the Texas Voiwaeits as fol
lows: "Governor Culbertson had written his
letter lu Ensltsh. us euily as July 1
and sent It to New Biaunfels for the
puipose of having It tianslatcd Into
Geiman, for Yankeedom In Texas
thinks that what Is good In the way
of Geiman must needs come fiom New
Biaunfels There the Culberson letter
was translated and, this tianslatlon
sent to Pilnce Blsmaick, whence the
letter was leturned unopened to the
governor of Austin, with the notice
marked on It by the Filedilchsiuh post
oilice: 'Refused.' Plince Bismarck
has refused its acceptance because the
governor's secretaiy hud only put a
two-cent stamp on the letter, w lilch
weighed fully two ounces. The prince
never pays an extia Hue or tax on. any
letter, nor did he on the one In question,
even If the envelope showed, thut It
came fiom the governor of Texas.
From Austin and this time propeily
piepald the letter was sent to the
prince, and, of course, accepted. The
foregoing leadlly explains the discrep
ancy In. thu dates and the delay so
vvldelj' commented upon."
