A BROKEN IDOL.
BT O. M.
Mark Challoner had lived to be forty
three years old before he saw a woman
he cared enough for to ask her to be
his wife; but this time had coiae for
him at last, as it comes to all men once
in their existence, the only thing for
which life seemed worth living for
and it dated from the minute he had
first seen Laura Bertram's witching
It happened so accidentally Mark
Challoner, a gravo business man, head
of a prosperous city firm, had many a
time felt almost terrified to think how
nearly he had come to not happening
at all. He had been lato for his
train something that did not occur
once a year, so regular and methodical
were his habits and a dainty young
girl, with big, velvety-brown eyes, and
carnation pink cheeks, and a mouth
like twin strawberries for lusciousness
of tint and temptingness of beauty, was
late too, and the two met, fate ordered,
on the platform at Ludgate Hill, three
seconds after the train had left.
'That is exasperating, to say the
least,' he said, as he turned, with a
half-vexed smile, towards his fellow
miserable. . Then, when he saw the radiant, ex
quisite face, in all its girlish bloom and
beauty, there went a feeling over and
through, and about him that wa3
strangely unlike anything he ever be
fore had experienced in his forty-three
She made her broad forehead pucker
into a charming little frown as she
turned from the receding train to his
plain, honest face just sucli a face as
a women would instinctively trust out
of a thousand faces anywhere.
'I am very much disappointed.
wouldn't have missed it for anytking
my friends will meet the train and
wonder what has become of me.'
She turned back, disconsolately,
towards the ladies waiting-room.
'If you will allow me to be of ser
vice,' he said, eravely. with that delic-
iously strange sensation thrilling all
over him, '1 will telegraph for you;
and as I ialso have to wait for the next
train, I shall be most happy to see you
safe to your friends.
'Thanks, very much, please do tele
graph for me to Mr. Lancester, at the
Willows, Buckeye, and explain. I am
Mr. Challoner is a valued friend of
mine. I am quite sure he would trust
you with me,' and he smiled. 'My
name is lvlark t'halloner, my liome is
just the other side of Bromley. :
That was their very informal intro
duction: and four hours later, Mrs.
Lancaster repeated it, ceremoniously,
in h;r drawing-room at the Willows.
Well, it had nearly all happened in
the winter, nearly all of which season
Laura had spent with her uncle and
aunt, and the consequence was that
Mark Challoner had asked the girl to
marry him, and she had not said him
' In all the wide world there was not
a happier, prouder man than Mark
'I will be so good so good to her,'
he was thinking rapturously, 'She
shall have everything in the world she
wants there shall not bo a wish un
ratified that' I can hear her express
or imagine she thinks. My bright
bonny, little darling, who has flooded
my grave, quiet life with such blessed
sunshine! My little Laura! 1 wonder
how it ever came to pass that she could
care for me?'
v It certainly did seem somewhat
strange, when a purely disinterested
. party took it into consideration.
Laura Bertram, young twenty or
more y.cars younger than he; she was
radiantly beautiful, gay and girlish,
Tirhile her betrothed was grave, quiet,
almost retiring in his disposition, and
possesssing very few claims to being
considered a good-looking man.
But he was so thoroughly good.
He was as gentle as a woman, yet
very bit manly and resolute in what
ever he did or said; and. with a might
And a force that sometimes amazed
himself, he loved the girl that promised
to be his Wife, and who had let him
clasp her to his heart, and received his
ardent kisses on her smiling mouth.
Yes, he was happy undeniably, per
fectly happy; and into that rapturous
peace, that brooded like a blessing over
him, a friend of hit entered, a man
honest and true, and sarcastic and
plainspoken, but whose out and out
free new of speech had never touched
Mark until this occasion, when, so very
naturally, Laura's name was men
tioned. 'I haven't said anything about your
engagement, for I really didn't think
it would amount to much,' John Clay
ton said, in his of-hand way.
'Didn't think it would amount to
much!' Mark repeated in a sort of
amazing mechanical way.
'No, I thought it wouldn't, and hop
ed the same. I den't approve of it, by
any means, Mark That girl dont care
a straw for you.'
Mr. Challoner looked at him in as
tonishment for a second, then a slow
red stain came into his face.
'That sounds rather rough, old fel
low. Don't forget its a sacred subject
'Stuff and nonsense! It's a subject
that cant t be too highly illuminated
with all the common sense that can be
brought to bear. I tell you, you are
in love until vou are blind as a bat, and
I shall do my duty by you. That
pretty little girl don't care that for
you, Mark; and I hate to see you make
such an idiot of yourself.
'See here, Clayton,' and Mark Chal
loner 8 low, cool voice was ominously
low and cool, despite its patience
"you must not expect I shall permit
any one to speak to me about my per
sonal affairs. You '
Clayton looked a little defiantly at
'Don't ee" obstreperous, Mark! I've
known you, boy and man, many years,
and you, don't suppose, do you, I'll
shut my eyes and mouth when 1 see
you allowing yourself to be married
for your money, and nothing but your
money' Just another minute. Let
me say my say.anu 1 swear it is my hrst
and last on the subject; but strip your
self of your fortune, your fine house,

Bertram would give you the go-by.
Try it to prove my truth.'
Mark had listened with a visible ef
After this I decline any interference

And Clayton, having had his say

Challoner, in his perfect love and trust,
went his way serene ami concent,
every day thanking Heaven lor its
Until one bright Autumn day, when
he found himself away at the West
End abopt lunch time, and stebped into
the academy, when, after a cursory
glance at the pictures, he went into
the dining-room, where, a minute or
so after he had given his order, and
while he was looking half-cunouslv
around him, he suddenly made the de
licious discovery that, all unconscious
of Lis vicinity, Laura Bertram was oc
cupying a table not two yards from
him", in company with a lady friend
a brighi, vivacious young lady, who
sat facing him, with Laura's pretty
black hair and sloping shoulders were
presented to his admiring gaze.
Another minute, and he would have
acted upon his first impulse and joined
them ; but Fate had arranged it all for
him, and instead of obeyiug the im
pulso, he heard himself spoken of in
Laura's sweet voice, in . a way that
hushed him into a strange, motionless
'Of course you wouldn't have Mr.
Challoner Rita, you needn't tell me
that. Neither wauld 1, if he 'hadn't
'but so has tharne JJenzil money,
and you know he is disconsolate be
cause you broke your engagements
with him on Mr. Challoner's account.'
My middle-aged adorer has more
than Charlie, anyhow.' Laura asserted,
lightly. 'He is horrid, and there's no
use dissembling the fact. He's old as
Mathuselah, and grim as a church-owl
and whenever he kissed me, 1 wished
it was Charlie. Oh, 1 do, Kita, and vou
need n t look shocked!
'You are an awful girl, Laura.
Oh, you were going to show me his
photograph. Let's see it Of course,
you carry it next your loving heait.'
Oh of course! Laura said, sneer-
ingly, as she produced a picture of him
he had given her a few weeks before,
over which she had gone into such
pretty ecstacies that he had felt a thou
sand lold repaid. '1 here! it does seem
radicious to think I should marry such
queer looking object, doesn t it?
And Charlie is so handsome! See
here the contrast.
And, to Rita's honest astonishment,
Laura produced a locket-picture of
handsome Charlie Denzi.
Laura, you are incorrigible! Let's
have a good look at your adorable.
Great heavens,' and she leaned her
face close to Laura's, 'tho original of
that photograph isn't three feet away.
Right behind you, look.'
With a little exclamation. Laura
looked, her face paling to ashes, as Mr.
Challoner bowed, and stepped forword,
and dropped his head near enough to
prevent any one but they two from
hearing his lew words.
'I am very fortunate in having made
this charming discovery in time, and
to wish you good-day. Good bye! and
better success with Mr. Denzil than you
have accomplished with me.'
Well Laura went home and cried
herself sick, and almost the first piece
of gossip brought her was that Charlie
Danzil and Rita Burton weroengagsd;
and somehow, her spirits were broken,
and her beauty faded, and she grew
dull and ill-tempered, and ceased to be
a favorite, and, in all probability will
die an old maid.

Washington-, Feb. 9. An hour Before
the meeting of the House, and two hours
before the time appointed for count
ing the Electoral Vote for President and
Vice President, the galleries of the house
were filled with spectators, a large ma
jority of whom were ladies. On the floor
a few wooden chairs were sandwiched in
between the seats of members for the ac
commodation of senators, but otherwise
there was no indication of any save the
usual routine business of the House was
to be transacted.
A few minutes past 13, the door-keeper
announced the arrival of the Vice Presi
dent and the senators, who then filed
into the chamber. Vice President
Wheeler took the seat on the right hand
uf Speaker Randall and the senators were
'accommodated with chairs in front of
the rows of desks.
The Vice President called the Assem
bly to order and said: "The two Houses
being assembled in pursuance of the Con
stitution that the votes may be counted
and declared for President and Vice
President on the fourth day of March,
1881, it becomes ray duty under the con
stitution as President of the Senate, to
open tho certificates or election or the
several states of tb-- Union, in presence
of the two Houses, and so now proceed
to discharge that duty."
The tellers, Thurman and Hamlin on
the part of the Senate, and House and
Crowley on the part of the House, having
taken their places at the clerk's desk, the
Vice President said: "I open a package
purporting to contain certificate of elec
tion from the state of Alabama, and hand
the certificate to be reported."
The certificate having been read very
slowly by Senator Hamlin, and having
shown that the electors of the state of
Alabama had cast 10 vates for Win field
S. Hancock for President, and 10 votes
for Wm. H. English for Vice President,
the Vice President said: "Tho vote of
the state of Alabama having been reajord-
ed by the tellers, I open and hand to them
the certificate of election the state of
The 6 votes of Arkansas having been
recorded for W. S. Hancock for President,
and W. H. English for Vice Presideat,
on motion of Mr. Reagan the reading of
the merely formal portions of the certifi
cates was dispensed with. The certifi
cate from California showed that 5 of the
6 votes of that state had been cast for
Hancock and English, and 1 for Garfield
and Arthur. The 3 votes of Colorado
were recorded for Garfield and Arthur.
The 3 votes of Delaware were recorded
for Hancock and English. The 4 votes of
Florida were recorded for Hancock and
English. The next certificate handed the
tellers was from the state of Georgia, and
it was read by Mr. Crowley, the reading
in full being demanded by Mr. Springer.
The certificate shows that the 8th of De
cember, 1880, the votes of Georgia were
cast for Hancock and English. The Vice
President then said; "It appearing from
the certificate just read that the vote of
Georgia was cast on a day other than
that fixed for casting such votes by act of
Congress, in pursuance of the Constitu
tion of the United States, this certificate
will not be recorded until, in the lang
uage of the concurrent resolution under
which this count proceeds: it will appear
whether counting. or omitting to count
such votes will change the result of the
rue 31 votes or Illinois were then re
covered for Garfield and Arthur; the 15
votes of Indiana were recorded for Gar
field and Arthur; the 11 votes of Iowa for
Garfield and Arthur; the 5 votes of Kan
sas for Garfield and Arthur; the 13 votes
of Kentucky for Hancock and English;
the 8 votes of Louisiana for Hancock and
English; the 7 votes of Maine for Garfield
and Arthur; the 8 votes of Maryland for
Hancock and English; tho 13 votes of
Massachusetts for Garfield and Arthur;
the 11 votes of Michigan for Garfield and
Arthur; the 5 votes of Minnesota for Gar
field and Arthur; the 8 votes of Missis
sippi for Hancock and English; the 15
votes of Missouri for Hancock and Eng
lish; the 3 votes of Nebraska for Garfield
and Arthur; the 3 votes of Nevada for
Hancock and English; the 5 votes of New
Hampshire for Garfield and Arthur; the
9 votes of New Jersey for Hancock and
English; the 35 votes of New York for
Garfield and Arthur; the 10 votes of North
Carolina for Hancock and English; the 33
votes of Ohio for Garfield and Arthur;
the 3 votes of Oregon for Garfield and
Arthur; the 39 rotes of Pennsylvania for
Garfield and Arthur.
Four votes of Rhode Island for Gar
field and Arthur; 7 votes of South Caro
lina for Hancock and English; 13 votes
of Tennessee for Hancock and English;
8 votes of Texas for Hancock and English;
votes of Vermont for Garfield and
Arthur; 11 votes of Virginia for Hancock
and English; 5 votes of West Virginia for
Hancock and English; 10 votes of Wis
consin for Garfield and Arthur.
The Vice President then announced
that the certificate of Wisconsin waa the
hut of the certificate. The teller pro
ceeded to foot up the Tolcerast for Preai
aent and Vice President.
Senator Tnunnau then said "The tell.
fers report the whole number of elector
appointed to vote for President of the
United States was 30, of which a uiajon
ty is 185. Were the votes of the electors
for tha state of Georgia cast the second
Wednesday of December, 1880, being the
eighth day of said month, to be counted
the result would be, for James A. Gar
field, of the State of Ohio, for President
of the United Statxt. 214 votes, and for
Winfield S. Hancock, of the State of
Pennsylvania, for President of the United
States, 155 votes. If not counted the re
sult would be, for James A. Garfield, for
President of the United States, 214 votes,
and for Winfield S. Hancock, for Presi
dent of the United States, 144 votes. In
either event James A. Garfield has re
ceived a majority of the votes of the
whole number of electors appointed."
Senator Thurman made a similar state
raent relative to the vote for Vice Presi
dent. "Wherefore," said Vice President
Wheeler, "I do declare James A. Gar
field, of the State of Ohio, having re
ceived a majority of the votes of the
whole number of electors appointed is
duly elected President of the United
States for four years commencing the
4th day of March, 1881, and I do further
declare Chester A. Arthur, of the State
of New York, having received a majority
of the votes of the whole number of
electors appointed, duly elected Vice
President of the United States for the
four years commencing the 4th day of
March, 1881. Loud Applause.
The Senate then retired to their cham
ber. After the Senate had left the cham
ber and order had been restored, Mr.
House presented to the House the report
of the tellers, signed by Senators Hamlin
and Thurman and Messrs. House and
Mr. Crowley then offered a resolution
reciting that the House had met the
Senate; that the electoral votes had been
opened by the President of the Senate in
the presence of the two Houses of Con
gress and counted by the tellers on the
part of the two Houses; That it appeared
James A. Garfield received a majority of
the votes cast for President and Chester
A. Arthur a majority of the votes cast
for Vice President, and that the same
had been duly declared by the President
of the Senate, in the presence of the two
Houses and declaring that the two Hous
es are of the opinion that the Constitu
tion and laws have been duly executed,
and that no further declaration of these
facts is necessary. Tho resolution was
adopted, and the House went into com
mittee, with Carlisle iu the chair, on the
legislative appropriation bill.
Difference Between "Cousins."
The difference between city and their
country cousins is more marked than
most people believe. The first impression
a man has on finding himself for the first
time in a great city is or vague excite
ment, accompanied by a sense of danger,
The multiplicity of objects appear fantas
tic to an eye accustomed to rural scenery;
the uninteraiittent noises, the entangled
yet purposeful panorama of unfamiliar
human faces, eombino to throw the visi
tor into a state of mind totally strange to
him. And amid so much tumultuous
life he sees death everywhere on the look
out for a victim. But if the visitor to
these strange regions looks at the faces
of those he meets in search of some re
flection of his own perturbation, he looks
in vain. 1 be countenance ol the city
man, as he threads his way along the
streets, is curiously impassive. At a first
glance it appears also to be unobservant,
but this is not. For though he seems to
look at nothing, it soon becomes evident
that he sees everything. He mechanic
ally informs himself out of the corner of
his eye, of everything that might tend to
obstruct or threaten him; and though a
thousand people without encountering
the gaze or treading on the toes of any
one or them, lie will recognize an ac
quaintance or calculate to an inch the
rate ot speed at which lie must make the
crossing in order to escape the omnibus
from one direction and the truck from
another. Doubtless custom and memory
will account for a large part of it; yet the
impassive tace would probably appear
far Jess impassive than it does had not
the contraction of the facial muscles
brought about by the innumerable im
pressions and the impossibility of respond
ing to them all, become in a manner
fixed. The houses and the pavements,
the vehicles and the hubbub, produce an
effect upon these muscles just the reverse
of that exercitted by the hills and dales of
the country; they press them in instead
of drawing them out in other words, t lie
mind resists them instead of sympathiz
ing with them.
I have sold at retail price since the
4th of December last 156 bottles of Dr.

universal satisfaction. In my own

after a physician penciling it for
several days to no effect, the Eclectric

hours, and in threatened croup in my
