" My last hope rests in you, May.'
"In me, father?"
May Warren made answer in I m
of surprise, raising her sad, auxiou:
eyes :o her father's lace.
As if her gaze discomposed him,
Mr. Warren turned his head, and his
glance wandered restlessly around
tiie apartment. He was an old man,
with a tall, spare ligure, thin, gray
hair, and was sitting in an arm-chair,
by a table covered with papers, while
his pretty daughter May sat beside
him on an ottoman. She. repealed
her words : '
" Ia me, father?"
"Yes," he replied, starting from
a moment's abstraction. " Lo you
remember Col. Leighton, my dear ?"
" Gol. Leighton? An old man with
a heavy beard, partly gray, and
pleasant blue eyes. He dined with
ns a few weeks ago. Yes I reniembei
" Not so very old May.-not so
old, asl am,-and one ol" the finest
men iiviug. He is wealthy,-very
He met his daughter's questioning
gaze fully now, as if he had expected
her to read something in his lace.
She kept her dark eyes fixed search
ingly upon his countenance, the ebb
and ?ow of the soft color upon her
cheeks betraying the quick pulsation
of her heart.
" What do you mean, lather ?" she
asked, at length.
" I saw him last night. Ile offered
to help me-save me, if
"If what, father?"
,; If I would give you to him."
The words came hurriedly from Mr.
Warrens lips, as i-f he feared that il
he deliberated he should nor. be able
to utter them at all. As they fell
on his daughter's ear she started to
her feet, pushing hci- hair back from
her pale lace, in a bewildered sort
of a way, as if she were half-stnnned.
" Marry me. father ? Cel. Leigh
ton ?" she cried in a low voice.
Mr. Warren took her hand, ?'ind
drew her down to her sea: ? gain.
"May, Col. Leighton will be a g.^oii
husband to you. I .have known him
from boyhood, and understand per
fectly1 weil his character and princi
ples. He loves you-will be kind
TO you, and strive in every way to
maire you happy. And more-and
more, May, lie will save me from
lie paused, but his child. with her
mee bowed upon her hands, made no
reply, nor stirred. The mut? distress
that her attitude betokened was not
unnoticed by him.
" I do not force you to this, May,
remember ; tue matter is left to your
own choice. But you kuow wind
my own wish is-what the alterna
tive will be if you do not accept the
Sue knew only too well. Fully she
* realized now how absolutely necessa
ry the luxuries to which her father
had become accustomed were to bim.
Absolute loss of possession did hot
seem the mosl dreadful thing in the
world to her, but site knew whai a
wreck it would make of him. Ju hei
youth and strength the future would
still be bright and full of hope to
her; but how could he, with his aged
frame and burden o? sixty veavs
commence life anew? The hopeful
thought thai; she could work for him
and supply him with his accustomed
comforts, afforded her but a moment's
comfort. To him with his stubborn,
aristocratic ideas, this would be the
most severe trial of all-his delicate
ly reared petted child laboring for
his support. He would never be re
conciled to it. That was'no alterna
tive she saw at a glance. Then with
a desperate effort to think calmly,
she recalled the form ol Col. Leigh
ton. She remembered his bowed
head and silvered beard, his dark,
deeply-furrowed face, and fifty years.
She could get no further. A younger
face, with merry azure eyes, and
tossing, sunny hair, sprang up in
strong contrast stretching out her
hands to her father, as-if for pity,
she cried out, 4* I cannot! oh, father.
The old man sank back with a
" Lost-then I ara lost!" he cried
shuddering. There were no reproaches,
only those bitter words and that des
pairing attitude. White and tearless
?he sat at his feet, the agony of he .
heart was written on her face. Th '.
wild, desperate thought that her sac
rifice was possible, occurred to her.
" Father, dear father !"
He raised bis head, whitened with
the frosts of sixty winters, and look
ed at her wi.th a gleam of hope in h:s
sunken eyes. She crept into his
arms as she had done when a child,
and laid her soft cheek against his
" You .know that I love you, fath
er," she said. I can never remember
you but as kind, tender, and forbear
ing with nie. Your h?arfc has been
my home all rn}- life. I will work,
beg, sutler for you-I will die for you
-oh, how willing, if need be. But
that-oh, father, you uo not know
what it is that you ask !"
He did not speak, but a moan broke
uncontrollably from his lips, as he
rested upon her shoulder. The strug
gle in her heart sent dark shadowy
waves across her face. Could she
could she ?
"Father," she whispered hurriedly,
" let me go, now. I will see you
again-answer you to-morrow." And
she left him.
He could not see her lace in the
gathering darkness, only ? glimpse of
something white, but he felt the quiv
ering'of her lips as she bent to kiss
him, und reached out his arms to em
brace her, bu$ she was gone.
''Heaven pity me!" Thc words
carne like a wail Jrom her lips. She

light of the rising moon filled
room with its soft radiance, but
was unconscious of everything

the sound of a footstep crossing
hall below fell upon her ear,
ai used her to a momentary into:
She heard a door open,-the lib:
door, and then a voice uttered a
words of common-place greeting,
remembered it well, and sprang
her feet with a desperate, im
thought cf flight. But the door (

She crossed the room listlessly,
drew back the curtain of the "
dow. The scene without was bea
ful. The moonlight lay broadly
.the garden, turning to silver the ?
of the trees, and making the li
lake beyond look like a great w
pearl. Gazing earnestly downw
sh . saw a tall, shadowy figure sta
ing beneath the shade of the
elm. With a low cry she spr
fr- m thc room, and, a moment af
stoo l beside her lover.
" Conic, at last, my treasure," ci
Mark Winchester, folding her in
arms. She remained leaning passi
ly against his breast, while he pr
ed passionate kisses upon her ft
head, cheeks, and lips.
"Why have you made me wait
long, darling ?" he said softly, a
taking both her slender hands in
of his pressed them to his lips. "W
how cold you are ! How you tri
ble !" he continued, as she clung
him. '. What is the matter. May ?'
"I waited because I dreaded

" Why ? What do you mean ?"
And, brokenly through her te
and sobs, she told him all. He <
not speak or stir while she was ta
ing : and when she had finished th

age to say more.-he would not a
She repeated the last words : " A
to-morrow I must give him my i
stver." Still he did not speak.
She looked up at him. In the tl
light she could see his rigid, agon
ed face, white lips, and gleami
eves. She stole her arms about
neck, and drew his forehead down
'. -Speak to me Mark ; say that y
do not blame me."
He knew then that she had dec
ed, and what the decision was.
" And you will leave me, May, a
marry that old man?"
.'Heaven pity me, Mark, for
must. I will become his wife, a
will be true and faithful to him,

He glanced at the young face, s
sad in its calm dignity, and !ooke<
down ar his fingers again, which wer
bruised in tearing io pieces tiie bios
sum he held, and allowing; che crim
son petals to fall at his fee;, as if the}
were fragments of the heart he wa
breaking. In thc long .'??euee thu
followed she glanced up at him onci
with the Thought of flinging hersel
upon iii.? mercy by giving him he
? mfidence; but the stern expressior
of his face repelled her.
''Miss May," he said suddenly
" you are averse co this marriage."
His. tone aided in rendering hi.
words an assertion. She was star
tied, but replied quietly, "Do-yoi
; '.ink so ?"
.. 1 must bc blind if I could thinl
otherwise," ho continued with sud
den energy. "May Warren, yoi
know that you hate me-that yoi
would rather die than bc my wife
were it not for your lather's sake."
Before she realized what she wai
doing, the monosylable " Yes" slipped
from her lips.
" And in doing this do you realize
how you would wi 3ng us Loth ?"
She was silent.
"It shall never be. I will never
make you my wife, knowing that you
do noe love me-that your heart is
not in my keeping. I will not tell
you of my hopes, how I have dream
ed that my last days would be my
happiest ones-it would not interest
yon. Now I have only to say that
you are as free as if I had never seen
your sweet face."
He paused for a reply, but she
made none. Bewildered by her po
sition, site did not know what to say.
" 1 know that I have myself to re
proach," he went on. "My motive
in offering your father my assistance
was purely a selfish one. The con

One stop and then another,
And the longest walk is ended ;
One stitch and then another,
And the largest rent is mended ;
One brick upon another,
And the highest wall is made ;
One flake upon another,
And tho deepest snow Ls laid.
So the little coral-workers,
By their slow but constant motion,
Have built those pretty islands
In the distant, dark blue ocean;
And the noblest undertakings
Man's wisdom hath conceived,
By oft-repeated efforts,
Have been patiently achieved.
A superintendent once asked us to
take charge of a Sunday school class.
" You'll find 'em rather a bad lot,"
said he. " They all went fishing last
Sunday but little Johnny .Rand. He
is really a good boy, and I hope. his
example may yet redeem the others.
I wish you would talk to 'em a lit
I told him I would. They were
rather a hard-looking set. I don't
think I ever witnessed a more elegant
assortment of black eyes in my life.
Little Johnny Rand, Ifche good boy,
was in his place, and I smiled on him
approvingly. As soon as the lessons
were over I said :
" Boys, your Superintendent tells
me you went fishing last Sunday.
All but little Johnny here. You
didn't go, did you, Johnny ?"
"That was right. Though this
boy is the youngest among you," I
continued, " you will now learn from
his own lips words of good counsel
which I hope you will profit by."
I lifted him on the seat beside me,
and smoothed his auburn ringlets.
" Now, Johnny, I want you to tell
your teacher and these wicked boys,
why you did not go fishing with them
last Sunday. Speak up loud, now.
It was because it was very wicked,
and you had rather come to Sunday
school, wasn't it?"
"No, sir; it was 'cos I couldn't
find no worms for bait j"

close of tbe war, wachet} ashore, high

Richmond, where 7:u was forced to
hang out his shingle and commence

of his first clients was a youth who !
had been arrested at thc instance ^. ,

for having 'f rocked/' his house and '
severely injured his daughter with n
stone thrown through the window.
At the examination old Pompey
was put upon the stand, and proved

that it would have gone hard with

for the following cross-examination :

I ain't gwine to tell.
Lawyer-Again I must insist upon

did not injure her, but it broke three
fingers of a gentleman what was pay ^

The case was dismissed immediate
ly for want of jurisdiction.
COMING TO THE POINT-A gentle
man once wrote to a lady whom he
had offended by his dilatoriness, and
who for a long time, had refused to
forgive him. His lej^i?v was earnest in
supplications for forgiveness. It .con
cluded thus :
" One word from your lips will
make me happy, ^yhen and where
will you speak it ?"
Her laconic answer was
" Next Wednesday, at the altar."
To which he sent the following
equally laconic reply :
" I will be there."

IT8 CURE AND IT8 PREVENTIVE.
By J. H. BCBXHOr, IL ?.
Many a human being bas passed away for whose
death there was no other reason than the neglect of
Known and Indisputably proven means or dbre.
Those near and dear to family and friends are
Bleeping the dreamless slumber Into which, had
they calmly adopted
DB. JOSEPH H. BCHENCK'S SIMPLE
and cvalled themselves of his wonderfully efflca
clous medicines, they would not have fallen.
Dr. achenck has In his own case proved that
wherever sufficient vitality rematns.ihat vitality,
by his medicines and his directions for their nae. lu
quickened Into healthful vigor.
In thia statement there ls nothing presumptuous.
To the faith of the Invalid ls made no representation
that ls not a thousand times substantiated by living
and visible works. The tbeorv of tho cure by Dr.
Schencfs medicines is as simple as lt is unfailing.
Its philosophy requires no argument It ls self-as
The Sea-weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are the
first two weapons with which the citadel of tho
malady Is assailed. Two-thirds of the cases of con
sumption originate In dyspepsia and a functionally
disordered liver. With this condition Uie bronchial
tubes "sympathize" with the stomach. They re
spondi? the morbiflcactlon of the liver.. Here then
comes the culminating result, and the setting In,
with all Its distressing symptoms of
The Mandrake Pills uro composed of one of Na
Iture's noblest gifts-tho Podophlllum Peltatum.
They possess all the blood-searching, alterative
properties of calomel, but, unlike calomel, they
**!?>: A VE NO STING BEHIND." .
The work of cure ls now beginning. The vitiated
and mucous deposits In the bowels and In the ali
mentary canal are ejected. The liver, like a clock,
ls wound up. It arouses from its torpidity. The
stomach acts responsively, and the patient begins
to fee' that he Is getting, at last,
A airPPMr OF GOOD BIiOOD.
The Sea-weed Tonic, in conjunction with tho Pills,
permeates and assimilates with ?be food. Chylifi
catlon is now progressing without its previous tor
tures. Digestion becomes painless, and thecare Is
seen to be at baud. There is no moro flatulence, no
. exacerbation of the stomach. An appetite sets In.
Now comes the greatest Blood Purifier ever yet
given by an Indulgent father to suffering man.
Bebendes Puliuonlc Syrup comes in to perform lu
. functions and to hasten and complete tho cure It
enters at once upon Its work. Nature can not be
cheated. It collects and ripens the Impaired and
diseased portions of the lungs. In the form of
gatherings, lt prepares them for expectoration, and
Io I In a very short time the malady la vanquished
the rotten throne that it occupied Is renovated and
i made new, and the patient, In all the dignity of re
gained vigor, steps forth to enjoy the manhood or
! _ GIVEN UP AS EOST.
The second thing la, tho patients must stay in"a
i warm room untU they get well ; lt la almost lmpos
. sible to prevent taking cold when the lungs are dis
eased, but it must be prevented or a cure can not tte
effected. Fresh air and riding out especially in this
section of the country, in the fall and winter aea
; BOD. are all wrong. Physicians who recommend
; that course lose their patients, If their lungs aro >
, badly diseased ; and yet, because they are In the I
I house they must not sltdown quiet; they must walk
; about the room as much and as fast as the strength
: will bear, to get up a good circulation of blood. The
patients must keep in good spirits-be determined
to get welL This has a great deal to do with the
appetite, and Is the great point to gain.
; "To despair of cure after such evidence of Its pos
sibility In the worst cases, and moral certainty In
all others, ls sinful. Dr. 8chenck's personal state
ment to the Faculty of his own cure was In these
modest words :
; " Many years ago I was In the last stages of con
: sumption ; confined to my bed, and at one time my
physicians thoughtthat leonid not liveaweek; then,
like a drowning man catching at straws, I heard of
and obtained the preparations which I now oner to
the public, and they made a perfect cure of me. It
seemed to me that I could feel them penetrate my
?hole system. They soon ripened tho matter in my
lungs,and I would spit up more thana plntof offen
sive yellow matter every morning ror a long time.
As soon as that began to subside, my cough
fever, pains, and night-sweats all began to leaveme!
and my appetite became so great that it waa with
difficulty that I could keep from eating too much.
II soon gained my strength, and ha ve grown in flesh
' "I was weigh ed shortly after my recovery," added
. the Doctor, " then looking like a mere skeleton ; my
weight was only ninety-seven pounds; my present
weight ls two hundred and twenty-five (z25j pounds,
and for years I have enjoyed uninterrupted health."
Dr. Scbenck has discontinued his professional
visits to New York and Boston. He or hLs son, Dr.
J. H. Schcnck, Jr., still continue to see patients at
their Office, No. 15 North Sixth Street, Philadelphia,
every Saturday from 9 A.M. to 8 P.M. Those who
wish a thorough examination with the Beaplrc
the exact condition of the lungs, and patients can
readily learn whether they are curable or not
The directions for taking the m edicines are adapt
ed to the Intelligence even of a child. Follow these
directions, and k ind Nature will do the rest, except
ing that in some cases the Mandrake Pills are tone
taken in Increased doses; the three medicines need
no other accompaniments than the ampi? Instruc
tions that accompany them: Firs*, croate appetite.
Of returning health, hunger ta Um most welcome
symptom. When-it comes, aa lt w!U come, let the
despairing at onoe be of good cheer. Good blood at
once follows, the cough loosens, the night-sweat ls
abated. In a short time both of these morbid symp
toms aro gone forever.
Dr. Schenck's medicines are constantly kept in
tens of thousands of families. As a laxative or pur
gative, the Mandrake Pills are a standard prepara
tion ; while the Pulmonlc Syrup, as a cure of coughs
and colds, may be regarded as o prophylactic
against consumption In any of its forms.
Price of the Pulmonlc Syrup and Sea-weed Tonic,
I1J0 a bottle, or 87.60 a half dozen. Mandrake PLUS
