STORY OF A RECLIJSE.
In one of the mountainous counties
of Wales there lived for manny years a
hermit, of whom no one had any knowl
His abode was a cave, in a wild re
gion; and he never alpp)ear'ed among his
fellow-beings except to obt:in such ne
cessarivs as his hermlit life required.
He would never, while livinlg, reveal
his name, nor place of birth, nor the
cause which had led him to seclude him
self from the world.
One day a cottle of travelers, passing
thtrotugh tha1.i1t re:ion, v,isited the cave.
and found the hermit not only dead, but
in it state of decomposition.
The body, after an inquest, was
buried, and sonlc trnents and a few
trilles, which belonged to the deceased,
wore deposited at tIe nearest. magis

By strict integrity and diligence I
gradtitlly rose to a lirst position.
At two-and-twenty I had the conli
deneo of my employer, and was often
invited to his dwelling.
At first this mnatte me very happy.

As I ant confessing Ihis to myself, or

will say that I loved her to a degt-ee of

above tand beyond my reach; andl
though naturally easy and fluent in con

out chtanging color and choking, and
appearing more like an idiot tihan a

This made me avoid meeting her

So matters drifted on for a time, and
I became miserable over my solitary
brooding; and while I wished myself
far enough from the scene of a rival's
triumph, I shrank from the thought of
going where I should never look upon
my idol again.
One night, having forgotten some
thing at the store, I procured the key
from the porter attd entered the build
inl1'o my surprise, I soon perceived the
glimmer of a light in the counting
room; and on approaching it cautiously,
thinking there might be a burglar at
work, I was still more surprised to see
the safe-door open, and my rival seated
on the floor, apparently counting a
large roll of bank-notes.
"Well, this looks like singular night
work!" said I.
With a startled cry, he fairly leaped
to his feet, lotting the ioney fall aroud
him,- and turned towards m' oie of the
most ghastly races I ever itelieia.
After looking straight in my face for
a few moments, during which lie shook
and -trembled, and his very lips quiver
ed, he stammered out:
"Wh-wh-why, is it. you? Vha-wha
what do you want?"
"Suppose in turn I ask you what you
are doing with that open safe and
money at this untimelv hour?"
"Oh, that?" he an'swered, glancino
down at the scattered bank-notes, anI
evidently recovering himself with an
effort. "la, ha!" he affected to laugh.
"Do you know, my dear fellow, I took
you for a burolar!"
"Instead ofyourself, eh?"
'The fact. is, you see, my dear friend
"Suppose you leave the 'dear friend'
out?" I interrupted.
"Well, then,'' lie coolly went on, "the
fact is that, after going home, the idea
came imto my head that I had made a
mistake in lmy money report; and as
the governor, you know (meaning our
employer), is very particular about
trilins, and might discover it before I
should get achance to make a correc

"And doubtless you found an error,
which you were about to set right!" I
said, with a sneer which he seemed not

but I am not quite sure, because of your
interruption, I shall have to go all
over the money again. And now that I
have aeeounted for my presence here,

giving me a searching look.
"Well, I came in to get " Here it
occurred to inc that I, an honest man,
was being interrogated by one who was
perhaps a thief, and I suddenly broke
off and added: "That is my business."
"Oho!" lie exclaimed with a pecouliar
look and leer.
"And I came in by the pprter's key,"
I sha:rply continlued.
"Aha! yes, yes. Just so!"
"'And by wvhIat key did you com11 inP"
"I suppose youl are nlot ignlorant of

I turn'ied away abruptly to seek whmal
I camnie for and leave the building.

to be entirely innocent, tihe very fact
that I should be suspected of such a n1o
farious transaction nearly crushed mit
Judge of my unbounded amazemnt
and horror, then, on being asured thai
trunk, that the alnount of a thousand
pounds bad been abstracted within the
last few weeks, that my fellow-clerk and
rival had suspected ime ever since the
night (so h swore) lie had been me
comitig out of the store, and that the
porter had already given evidence of
my having borrowed hi:: key to enter
the building at an unseasonbale hour.
I comlprehended at once that this was
a most fiendish plot of iiy rival to get
me out of the way and shield his own
dishonesty, for he alone had robbed his
employer, and profited by it.
What could 1 do?'
My statement of the fact that I had
entered the premises for another pur
pose was not believed; and when I add
ed the whole truth of what I had seen
there, I was simply regarded as a cold
blooded rascal, who was trying to in
volve atl innocent young man in my
All my previous life of probity went
for nothing, or only stood out, white

Well, to be brief, I was tried, and
convicted, and sent to penal servitude
for a term of years.
She, who was my idol, was present
when the awfui verdict "Guilty" was
pronounced by the jury; and I sJiall
never forget the muournful look of pity
with which she regarded ne for the last
time, as she passed by in the felon's
dock, leaning on the arm of my wicked
rival and destroyer.
Well, I was, as I have said, convict

Never did a more amusiig or excit

than the great boar hiit which came
oil' at the Elysian Fields, lloboken,
on Monday afternoo*. The German
steamship Eder last week brought
over from Germany two wild boars,
which had been captured in the liartz
nont aiiis by agents o' Charles 1 eiche
tle collector of' wild anintals. When
the boars arrived they were Presented
by Mr. Reiche to Charles Kaegebalhnl,
of No. ",1.1 Washington street, lobo
ken. t"or several days he was at a loss
what to do with them. Finally sonic
of his friemds suggested that a grand
wild boar hunt he given at the Elysian
The suggestion met with Favor, and
the hunt was fixed for Moniday after
110011. Invitations were issued to a
nniher of, persotis, but many mnore
people camne than had been asked.
''hey swarmed over the fences of the
baseball grounds, where tle huntt took
place, and crowded through the gates
despite the precaution of the keepers.

A BANK'S INGRATITUDE.
In 1875, 11. C. Warner and I published
the Scottville Argus. Scottvllle s a
Kentucky town and is principally noted
for the activity of the town hog and the
lethargy of the town constable. I was
the editor, water-carrier, wood-chopper
anrd rent-dodger. Warner was publish
er, book-kccper, fire-maker, pressman
and refft-dodger. We did the most of
our work separately, but in dodging the
rent collector we worked with perfect
cone('rt of action. Our paper was six
mo1is ol wIenl it died. Under (lifle
cnt conditions it niight have lived a few
moments longer. Warner did not write
anything for the Argus, yet ho largely
Conltribuited to its collapse. ''his in the
way it occurred: One day a prominent

failure thus far can be attributed to tht'
fact that we've had no bank. Why,sir,
just, t4iink of it. All successful ne'wspa

towns where there are banks. If banks
were not coultcive to the health of the
newspapers, why the newspapers would
move away. Now, what I want you to
do, is to wr"ite am article in favor of the

take stolk in it.
Well, we advocated the establishntent
of tluhe ban11k, and the bank was estab
