who seamed to ha.,e no great fault
to find with the iway the world ,wahi
t-reating them al,1 ;-erything pro

were both very attentive to bu.i
ness. aind the altitude .nt;'med to be
about the right height for prospecr
ity. The story as given by the of-i
ficers was revived by the arrival of
the couple in this city again a day
or two ago.
The sale of cloth is the ,bu:iness.
The lady sells the goods by sam
ple; the patterns shown are usually
very nice and cheap at the price
asked. The gentlemen selected for
pro.pective purchasers, of the go 1ds
are generally those who have n:oney
and have not reiched the age
where the smiles of a pretty womnla!
are not effective. It is the society
man wchose positi,,n ouhl not per
mit his nanime to be connected with
a scandal, no matter how small
that is selected as the prey of the.
woman with the pearly teeth whose
smile leads on to lucre. Tie is
shown the cloth; it would make
up into an elegant suit and just
fitted to his particular style of
beauty. Hle wouldi buy it? No.
Well. the lady will call again when
lie is in a better humior. ile is Iit
ulent to-day, and -sle leaves him
with a smile. lie pondcrs over her
visit after she leaves and Ihe re
members her coquettish wayes.
Come to think of it she was coim
pnionableh, and anothter call woull
not be a very great torment. Slie
drops in the next day and bicoumes
sufliciently acquainted to feel justi
fled in blowing a hiss from her
dainty finger tips. Then the vic
timu begins a thinking that is so in
tense that hlie labors assiduously to
keep his thoughts a secret; he looks
at his clothes, and all at once it
dawns upon thim that his clothes
are rather shabby and lie becomes
absolutely certain that life, without.
the piece of cloth the lady has for
sale, would lie a burden. lie bce
coin -s inimost frightened I st she
should not return, and stills his
beating heart while he manufaii c
tures a copiolus amoult of hope for
lher speedy return. Po ir iman, he
could not get cloth any place else
half as nice as that the landt has
shown, so he pines f)or the cloth
She meets bhin enlhe street and
greets himi with a smiile that fairly
sets his heart afire; he stops and
tells her that he will take the
cloth. She is pleased and will
bring' it at once-but would lie
mind stepping up to her room and
picking out the goods-she had fir
gotten which pattern pleased h:in
most. He was a gallant. Of course
he would save her the trouble and
at the samine time feast his<y.s w'tl.
a vision of his fascinator's at o le.
lie gets to the roam and selects
the goods. She keeps him busily
engaged in conver:,ation, and ere
he kinows it, his arm has encircled
her wasp-like waist. lie has
forgotten about the cloth-only the
present bliss enraptures :im. All
tlhoughts of pants patterns are cast
aside and he soars in tile heaven of
expectancy. But the lady's hus
band brings him back to earth.
The "old man" glides noiseiessly
into the room and confronts the
blissful pair. The man who ieeded
cloth now pines for fresh air where
he can commune witl himiiself and
gather a mental history of his new
love affair, lie l uyIs ti, cloth and
leaves beside a sum with which to
poultice the husl:atd's wotinded
Thie couple are again in Helena,

not tell and they are at liberty to
