Commodious Brick Hotel,
I would respectfully inform the tooal and traveling
public that it will oe my constant aim to make the
Firt-Class i all Its Appointments.
No expense will be spared to make our guests
somfbrtablo. The house is comparatively new,
and furnished throughout in the best style.

I am the foreman in a large hosier
establishment in New York. I am 40
years old, and I never was particularly
handsome to look at. I do not sup
pose my manners reb especially fasci
nating either, for thie girls mostly call
me as I am given to understand, "Old
Crusty and Bear." Not that I mean
to be cross, but some people haven't
the agreeable ways of othea.
I hare sat behind the tall desk in
Tope & Buttonbell's nineteen years.
I've seen a good many curious phases
of life within that time; but the most
cot i-uB e, all hajppenaed to ni
going to tel you about.
" I wouldn't have had it happened
for ive dollars," said Dennison.
Dennison has charge of the out-door
department, and he came in on that
wet, drizzly, February evening, to
stanld by the cheerful fire in my room.
We had not lighted the gas yet; the
press and hurry of the work were over
for the day, and it was very pleasant
in the red shine of the fire. I was sit
ting on my tall stool, biting the feather
end of a quill pen, and thinking
thinking of I scarce know what.
"What has happened now ?" said I.
"•It'sLame Iletty," repllied Denni
son. "Two rolls of work missing, and
Hetty declares she brought 'em here.
I laid down the goose-quill. Lame
Hetty had been in my thoughts, some
how, and all that rainy twilight, just
as people and things will take posses
sion of your brains at times, and you
can't help yourself A soft-eyed, low
voiced girl, who walked with a crutch,
and always wore delicate grays and
dove colors. I knew her from the
throng because of the "tap-tap" of her
crutch, and I saw her standing in the
long line of girls waiting on Saturday
night to deliver their work and receive
"Ten dollars worth of shirts," said
Dennison-"order shirts too, and that
makes it worse. I am sorry for the
girl; she has a pretty face of her own
and I always liked her; but of course
it is neeessary to stand by rules. Loses
her deposit and no work."
" But suppose s?!e pays for the miss
ing work ?"
"It isn't likely she'lhdo that." said
Dennisoi. This sort of girl seldom
has ten dollars saved up:"
"I don't believe it's her fault, Den
flisul," insisted I.
"Sshe'a ze..onsihi, isn't ahe I"
Just then Mr. Buttonbell came in
with a great order in his hand from a
New Orleans house. I looked at it.
"We shall have a tight pull of it,
sir, to execute this," said I.
"But it must be executed," said he.
"Put on your hands. Turn on a full
head of steam. It won't do to let Peek
& Paterson go to any other place."
And he bistled away.
"Very unfortunate," said Dennison,
" Lame Hetty was one of our best
Hetty Dorrance came the next mor
ning, as usual to receive work; and
she had a ten dollar bank note in her
"Some kind friend has sent me this
to pay for the lost rolls of work, sir,"
said said she to me.
"You're in luck, Hetty," said I,
frowning over a long list of figures,
and trying not to blush under the
earnest gaze of her soft brown eyes.
"And I'm much--oh? so much ob
liged to him, whoever he ris,"she added,
in a low tone. " But I can't use it un
less--unless you think that I am inno
"Oh, of course I do," said r looking
up the quiver in her- voice. "I don't
believe you would take a pin, Hetty,
I've known you four years and I be
lieve you are a good girl. It's an awk
ward mistake somewhere, but there's
not many mistakes, my girl, but what
Heaven clears up in its. own tie.
Now take yoar place in line; there's
no time to be lost this morning."
So the matter was settled, but some
how a cloud rested on Lame Hetty.
Those who had been fast friends be
fore avoided her Bow- the coarsest
minded whispered and giggled when
the "tap, tap" of her crutch sounded
on the floor.
"Oh, Mr. Harvey,, said poor Hetty
one day when Jenny Warren, the
proudest and prettiest of our work
girls had declined to respond to her
modest bow, "it's very, very hard to
" Well, Hetty, only waitt," said I
"But it is breaking my heart," said
she. "They all think I am a thief."
"I don't, Hetty."
"I'know that, sir. I should drown
myself, if at least one person in the
~rorld did not believe I was mwocent"
The winter woae itself away. The
busy season was. a`cqded by one of
comparativeadilUaess; -aid among the
hands struck off the list was Httty
"Once a thief, alays a thief" said
old Jones, the cutter. "I had jst as

"Perhaps she isl--alone--in want,
And the rlore I pondered on the
matter the more uneasy I grew.
"Perhaps she is dead!"
And with the last ovqrwhelming
thought came the full revelation of
my own heart.
I had grown to love Hetty Dorrance.
Well, why not? I could afford a wife
as well as most men. Hetty was only
a work girl, and lame also, but she had
a fae like one of Heaven's angels, and
a heart as white as a filly. Of that I
felt certain. I loved her-why should
I not marry her?
So I sat do _`al wrote her a little
and asked her if she could consent tc
become my wife--and I concluded by
saying that I would call on the morrow
to receive her answer.
Just as I had sent my letter off there
came a knock at the door.
"Mr. Harvey, are you alone ? ' Can
I speak to you for one moment?"
"Is that you, Helena Ardent Why,
I thought you were married and gone
to California." I cried.
"I am m arried-to a spendthrift and
a villain!" said sbe, with a little,
hoarse laugh, "and I am going to Cal
ifornia to morrow, but I wanted to say
aword to you first. I wanted to pay
you for something2
"For what ?"
"That roll of work which people
accused Hetty Dorrance, the lame
rl, of taking."
"Helena, did you take that?"
"Yes," she cried, recklessly, "I did
take it. I wanted money sorely then;
the landlady wouldn't let me have my
trunks to be married until I paid her
what I owed her. I was standing by
Lame Hetty that evening. I saw her
put the piles of work 'on the desk-I
saw ihem slip and fall off the heap. I
was just going away, and it was ail
easy thing for me to stoop, as if for
my own pocket handkerchief, and pick
them up. I pawned them, thinking I
could easily redeem them, but I never
did. Hero is money to pay for them.
I hope Hetty was not blamed."
" She was though," said I, slowly.
" I can't help it," said Helena,
flightily. I have done my best. Will
you see that she is righted ? "
"As far as I can."
And Helena went away, muttering
to herself something about all her ac
couuts being closed at last. I paid buti
little attention to it at the time, but I
remembered it afterwards.
I went the next evening to lebt'tse
simple lodgings, over a baker shop.
" Miss 1)orrance'" said the baker's
wife, coming ot of a back room, with
a baby in her arms. " Why didn't you
know ? She's moved away."
"Moved ! And my letter ?"
"' We got a letter here yesterday, sir,
and forwarded it to her. No. 26 Av
enel Square, sir."
So I went to No. 36 Avenel Square;
a little gem of a brown stone house,
all bay windows and balconies, stand
ing in its own grounds, and there was
Hetty at the casement, watching for
"Hetty," said I, " did you get my
"Yes, Mr. Harvey."
4" And what is your answer i"
" That I will be your wife, Mr. Har
vey, and Chat I'm-oh, so thankful, to
have gained a good man's love "
I stooped and kissed her daisy face.
" I suppose you are working here
Hetty?" said I. It is handsome house.
" No," said Hetty, half laughing and
half crying. "I live here."
"My great-uncle died," said Hetty.
",He was an ol0 bachelor and-hated
us all-but he couldn't take his money"
with him. I had inherited his fortune."
" It can't be p9asible," said I rub
bing my forehead. -
" But it is possible,. said letty,
" and it is true.. I was going to send to
you to pay that $10 bank note back
when I got your letter."
" I have been paid, my girl," said I,
and I then told her about Helena Ar
graph in the papers, how an unknown
woman, with the words "Helena Ar
den" written on her pocket handker
chief, had drowned herself at the foot
of one of the East river piers.
That ismystory. t is simple enough,
and yet I think, it has the elements of
romance in it.
FEMALE DELICACY.--Aboe eve ry
other feature that adorns the female
character- delicacy stands foremost
within the province of good taste.
Not that delicacy which is perpetually
in quest of something to be ashamed
of, which makes merit of a blush, and
simpers at the false construction its
own ingenuity has put upon an inno

delicacy is as far removed from good
taste as from good feeling and good

WHATEVER may the result of the
present Spanish imbroglio--whether
the Administration of Grant rises to
tha height of the occasion or not-the
acquisition of Cuba by the United
States is event which will happen in
the near future. If it is not acquired
by war before Grant goes out of office,
it will be the great question in the
Presideptial election of 1876. The
Democratic party will favor the annex
ation of Cuba as they favored the'ac
quisition of Texas in 1844. The vig
orous, healthy, progressive American
sentiment is for extending the area of
American freedom, especially in the
direction of Cuba. A party which
makes that a specialty is sure to tri
umph in the election. The Spanish
despotism in Cuba might have been
perpetrated for sometime, but the Wir
ginius massacre will cause it to totter
to its fall. The public sentiment of
this country recognizes that its exist
ence near our shores is not compatible
with our peace and safety. We have
periodically, for thelast twenty years,
in consequente of the Spanish out
rages in Cubi, to our flag and to the
persons of our citizens, been compelled
to make great military and naval pre
parations at a cost of main millions
of dollars. The state of peace we have
had has been about as costly as that
of war would be. This condition of
things must end, Cuba must be free,
and, if she desires annexation to the
United States, we shall be glad to take
her. If the people of Cuba and the
Feople of the United States are united
in awdesire to be under the one Gov
eminent, we dconot recognize the right
of oldSpal toforbid the bansof union.

This Professor Monroe was so lazy
that he was in the habit of using his
grandfather's lecturme, written more
than 4azndred years before his day,
and students were electrified by hear
ing hin (1829 " and 1830) drawl out,
"when I was in Padua in 1694." This
was the signal for fun, and showers of
peas descended on Monroe's head, who

"his lordship" i. e. his master) Was, an

in fact, dead, but the old servitor was
too cautious to commit himself, in his
opinion, as to his condition. Among
other drinking anecdotes and sayings
is that of an old worthy who used to
say, "whisky's a bad thing," and then
as if to qualify such a dangerous senti

Col. Clarence Prentice.
A deep gloom was cast over a large
circle of friends in this city by the in
telligence received yesterday, that on
Saturday night Col. Clarence Prentice
had been thrown from his buggy and
received, injuries from which he died
in a few minutes. He had just re
moved to a farm on the Preston street
road, a few miles from the city, where
he proposed to- make his permanent
home. On Saturday night, about mid
night, he was returning home if his
buggy with his little son, George D.
Prentice, when turning suddenly into
the lane leading from the pike to his
houses the buggy capsized, throwing
him upon the hard ground with a vio
lence that ruptured a blood vessel
about the heart and caused almost in
stant death. His son was unhurt and
ran to the residence of Mr. Phillips
near by for assistance, but before any
one arrived the injured man had
breathed his last. Thus has passed
away the last of the immediate family
of Geo. D. Prentice, whose genius fil
ed the whole country with admiration
for many years.
Col. Clarence Frentice was a man of
great personal popularity. Accoih
plished, genial and kind, he lent a
charm to every circle in which he was
thrown. He was followed to the tomb
this morning by sorrowing friends. His
little orphan son is now. the only sur
vivor of the family of the great jour

northwestern Iowa, are in a state of
starvation, owing to the unfavorable
season and the destruction of their
