BY THE BIVER.
BY ttlTTIE HOKNER.
Slow the smamer sun is riding; torcMfce
santet gates of gold,
Thro' the wreathlag clouds that wrap him
in tbelr amber-tinted fold.
'Twecn ita verdant banks, the river takes
Its clear and winding way,
With IU rippling waters flashing Id the light
of dying day.
High above the snnset's portal swings the
crescent's silver horn.
And the whip-poor-will's faint wailing on
the zephyr's wine Is borne.
Prom the Dtll-top reaching backward to the
shell-bound river's strand,
Paints tbo sun. with ruby ingcrs every peb
ble on the sand ;
Every tiny, leaping wavelet every wlnd-
stlrred blossom fair,
With Its gifted colors tracing lines ol beau
ty everywhere.; ,
Once I wandered by the river in the gloomy
But I saw not nature's beauties slumb'riag
in the sunset's glow.
1 was kneeling on the pebbles of tbo flow
ing river's marge,
And with trembling fingers launching on IU
wave a tiny barge.
Ob t that barge was stored with treasures
richest, dearest of my heart.
Yet the. silver cord that bound It to the
shore was sooa'to part.
I had twined the fair Juno roses 'round one
brow so still In death,
She the fairest, she the rarest, she, whom
beaven christened Faith.
"Faith is dead," I murmured, weeping, as
I closed bcrgrlsf-kisied eyes,
"Take ber, waves, aad bear her westward,
'nestb the banner of the skies.
Bear ber onward to the oreau, bo will take
her tg bis breast;
Would that I were going with ber to that
peaceful, peaceful rest."
So 1 gave ber to the river, kneeling still up
on IU shore.
Sighing, "Earth is very dreary I shall see
her nevermore "
Here again beside the river I am wanderiug
as of yore,
While the day her own is chsngiiig for the
robe that twilight wore.
And the suu has kissed his linger to tbe
river and lo me,
And the shadows, dusky-wlogeil. silent
I am dreaming, sadly dreaming, of the
gloomy long ago,
Of the countless barques I've given to that
water's ceaseless flow.
Faith, thou best of all my jewels, first to
find tby peaceful rest.
First to wither like tbe roses that I laid up
on tby breast.
O thou cherished hopes that followed) O
thou joys, more precious still I
Love, O love, that drifted after 1 O tbo void
that naught can fill I
All this world is but tho margin of Heath's
river deep and wide,
And our lives are filled with easting ofour
treasures to it side.
Every day some chord is loosened, every
day sotno heart is reut.
And so many shrouds we fashion, and so
many treasures go,
That our heart grow muto with anguish
aud our tears refuse to flow.
Oh! the weary, weary watchos o'er tbe
slumbers of our dead,
Ob t tbe fingers vainly clinging to some bro-
keu silver thread.
Obi the human hopes and longings that tbe
waters toss with glee,
Ob 1 tbe endless floct of vessels drifting on.

We miners have a familiar knack of re
cbrisUnlag, and a name once alUred sticks
to a man as long as he sticks to the mines ;
so, even after Lumley bad thrown up his
claim and left tbe diggings, a good three
year ago, Lumley's Partner still. remained,
a finger-pott to trace tbe dlsUnce back.
Alter all, John Jones or Lumley's Pardner,
what mattered It in that doubtful tide of
immigration setting In toward tbe wild re
gions, where tbo first confidential question
after an intimacy which seemed to warrant
the liberty, was Invariably: "Say, com
rade, what was your name before you earns
You see,I knew Lumley's Pardner when
be first came Into the mines. I was up at
Wood's Diggings at tbe time And a party
of two or three or more came round pros
pecting. I remember I thought what a
fine stalwart young fellow be was, straight
as a pine tree, and no foolishness about him
either, for he had been roughing it a year
or two down on the Texas border. I never
saw tbe boys more downright pleased over
a new comer then when be bought a claim
and went in among us. He was not a man
to talk much about himself, nor one you
would feel free to question ; but tbcro was
an honest, square-dealing look out ol his
clear gray eyes, for all the trouble and un
rest lay up behind them.
Lumley was as different as a man could
be. I have often noticed that men take to
unlikes in mating among themselves, ss
well as In choosing mates for life. He
came Into tbe diggings a week or so later,
and somehow tbey fell In together. Lum
ley was what you might call an extra clever
fellow. lie looked scarcely more than a
boy these falr-sklnned people nevor show
their age with bis handsome womani-h
face, bright blue e'yes, and trim-built fig
ure; but be bad confidence until you
couldn't rest, plenty ol tbe gift of gab, and
a something about him 1 believe people
call it magnetism ; at least, when you were
with blm you believed just as be did, and
then wondered at yourself afterward for
Lumley always bad a knack ol .twisting
people around bis little finger; for alt that
the lines of firmness were quite lacking
about his mouth. Lumley's Pardner, now,
with his close-set lips aad square, massive
jaw you might its well hope to move a

would be strong to do or to bear, you could
easily see that.
I do not know as It wasexaclly fair. 1
never meant to eavesdrop, but it happened
In this wise : One nlgbt I went over to
Lumley's shanty It was amazing atrange
how soon his name got tacked to every
thingto see about a broken pick he want

door 1 saw there was no one in, and, being
tired with my day's work, I dropped down

leaning baek against the pine boards, wait

must have got drowsy and fallen asleep,
for the first thing I heard was voices, and

There was a reply; looking ever, Isaw

Lumley's Pardaer that, pearooly knowing
what I was delag, I steed aid watched and

words of love and trust, watching aad
waiting, aad of hapflaesaia him and the
child. I saw his face as be read. He might
be a weakasaa, but he loved the weasaa
and the child. From the last letter thera
dropped out a carte de vislte. Lamlsy
caught It npr with boyish eegsraooa

He tossed the picture, .across the taW.
The other picked It np'. I saw a Man die
once, tubbed through the heart. Just
such a took came Into tbe face of Lumley's
Pardner as he glanced at the picture In bis
hand. Lumley, Bending over the letter,
aever saw It. When be finished reading
he held out his iiand. Tbe other did not
even raise his eyes, but kept them, fixedly
on what he held.
- " f , too, once thought to have a wife aad
The words following that look were a
whole book of revelation to me. Happily,
Lumley did not notice IU His face showed
some surprise, ariagled with. that placid
satisfaction the successful man wean.
"Ah t'e retimed, shaking his bead
knowingly,- ' la that th way aha bald lies r
I knew you were always closemouthed,but
a disappointment I never suspected that.

and he ran bis eye admiringly over the
other's splendid proportions and manly,
" She never refused me," broke In Lum
ley's Pardner, In a lew smothered tone, his
eyes still fastened intently on the picture.
" 1 I never asked ber, but sbe knew my
mind, and I thought I knew hers. I wss
sure she would wait for me until I
back. It was for ber I went away. "
" But you wrote , to her 7" questioned
Lumley, with a genuine interest.
" Not a word not a line. I am a poor
scribe. But sbe knew me well enough to
need no written assurance of my Intentions.
Every day would be lived for her. There
could be no doubt of that in ber mind.",
Luiuley made a basty gesture of dissent.
" And there, old man, was precisely where
you failed to connect. It don't do, you
know, for women to take too much for
granted. Tbey like to be well fbrtlsed.and
then you are surest to win if you take them
by storm. Why, my Lalie "
"She don't look like sbe ever walked
over a true heart with her dainty feet, and
that glad little smile just curving her lips I"
broke in Lumley's Pardner, his white face
still bent on the picture. His deep voice
trembled a little over the last words.
Lulie it truth lts.ll, " answered Lum
ley quickly. Sbe never loved anybody but
me. To be sure, sbe bad admirers how
could she help that, and bo what she is?
but sbo loves me truly. Yon can see It in
Lumley's Pardner turned deathly pale.
Ue caught the table by one band, as If to
s'tesdy himself, and fairly hurled tbe pic
ture across the room to Lumley. It misted
IU mark and fell to the floor. As he saw It
fall, all the fierceness died out of bis eyes,
aud a frightened look crept into them.
" Pick her up," he said, with timid ap
prehension, as though It were a human be
ing, to whom, iu a moment of passion, he
had committed some act of violence. " I
didn't mean to do that poor little mother!"
the last words seemed to give him a
stronger footing wltb himself. "1 wa
thinking bow my wife married auother
man, and never let mo know."
" Come, come, old man, don't take it to
to heart I" aald Lumley, soothingly.
"There'll be a pleasant home, a dear little
woman and bright-eyed children Iu the fu
ture for you yet."
Never I ?
Lumley's Pardner brought down his Kit
like a sledge-hammer; then he leaned for
ward In his seat, with a feverish eagerness
in his manner which be tried bard to keep
out of his voice:
"Tell mo, bow would you have given up
your Lulie 1 "
Lumley laughed, with easy.eareless good
nature. "You put me in a tight place,"
he said ; ' but,supposlng tbe case, the first
question I should ask would be, Did sbe
ever go to the enemy's camp f ' that Is, for
sake mc for an old rival. "
N-n-o, " answered Lumley's Pardner,
slowly, " it was some one 1 bad never seeu.
I've nothing ag'ln tbe man."
Wby, then," went on Lumley, " truth
sometime cute hard, old fellow I think it
was your fault, and not tbe girl's. It's
man's privilege to speak his mind ; a wo
man's destiny to fold her hands and wait.
She can never be quite sure, unless be bas
spoken out. Then, perhaps, another, who
has learned to love ber, does speak. She
feels the need of love In "ber life women as
often marry to be loved as because they
love. Then, instead of wasting her life lor
that which may never come to ber, sbe
takes up tbe fate which Is lying at her feet.
Does she go very much astray?"
Lumley's Pardner dropped bis head upon
bis breast. "Poor girl I I never thought
I do not know bow It was that.I remem
bered all tbe words so plain. There was
no more said, aid feeling gullty-IIke for
stealing a mate's secret, which wa not
meant for me to know, I crept to my shan
ty, bunked in, and let tbe .broken pick lie
over until morning.
I always felt sorry for Lumley's Pardner
Well, for a time, things went on lu the
old way. Then Lumley' Pardner came
down wltbmounUin fever, and Lumley
nursed blm all through It. He was aa ten
der as a woman, was Lumley. When 1
used lo drop In of nights, occasionally, to
lend a hand at watching, the sick man'
eyes would follow him around tbe room in
a helpless, beseeching way, that was piti
ful to see.
It was only tbe ghost of Lumley's Pard
ner that got up from it, but the two men
were aiwaya nigbcr together after that.
When Lumley got back to the claim and
Lumley' Pardner was Just ;able to crawl
about, they came Into a wonderful streak
of luek. Lamley struck a big pocket, aad
there they were, in tbe turn of a die, rieb
men. Mining, after all, is a game of
chance yon bay your ticket, but It does
not aiwaya win. There are plenty of
blanks to every prise.
It does not matter the exact aasonatthu
prize netted, II I had remembered It. Luas-
ley was jubilant over his "pile," saxtousj
to sell out and leave the mines, so nobody
was surprised when his pardaer bought
him oat for a good rouad sum, saying la
his quiet way that he guessed he'd stay
aad see the thing through.
Jtwasvery qwet in camp the morning
that Lumley went away. Tbe beys were
sorry to lose him, for be had not any but
well-wishers among us.
Well, six months went by, sad then
came a little white letter "scribed" lu a
daiaty, woman's hand to; - Lumley's Gard
ner." The man trembled all over like a
leaf whea It was pat Into hU hand, took It
late his cable and shut the deor. Within

The bloed rushed all over his tare, for
the manliness yet left In htm could but feel
the shame or that meeting. Bat there was
no backing out now. Luatley's Pardaer
took him to oae side,
" I've heard ol yon, old ataa," he said la
bis matter-ef-fael way, "aad I've come to
see you out of this. How much do you say
will clear yon up aad have a trile ahead? "
Lamley aever raised his eyes.

"you.are a better friend than I deserve.
Don't ask m to take anytklag from you.
I went la with my ayes opea, aad, thaaklag

Lumley's Pardner laid a broad head no
each of the pitiful, drooping shoulder.
" Old man, when the fever had ase down,
I'd have goes under if it hada't been for
yon. So belp me God. I'd rather bare dlea
than taken what I have at your bands I Do
you dare deny me this small return now?

Lumley put down his head, upon that,
aad cried like a baby; Ue which, If It be

" I'm ashamed of myself through and

ley's next words,' " hut I can't give it np

There were ue old wtUfnlness aad pride
and Ue new fascination of Ue gaming-ta
ble. There waa no turning back, uo mov
ing blm from Uat resolve.
Lumley's Pardaer took blm by Ue arm.
"Either way, I'm bound to see you
through," he said. " Come."
So, night after night, as Lumley played,
Uere stood Lumley's Pardaer looking on,
with never a word of that Utile white let
ter, his answering message, or tbe two pas
sengers on board aa.oeean steamer bound
Despite Lumley's hopefulness, luck never
turned. ItwasUe same feverish unrest
end tedious waiting, Ue sense of degrada
tion by day, and at night Ue brilliantly
lighted gambling hell, Ue excitement, Ue
fascination, trembling betwixt hope aad
uncertainty, the freausat potations to
steady bis shaken nerves, and, aa tbe night
wore on, uncertainty deepening into fail
ure and disappeiatmsat; aad each morn
lug Lumley's Pardaer led him slowly aud
silently away, until, time weariug on,
brought at last this appeal :
"For God's saks, old man, when will
you let up?"
"So belp me Heaven, as soon as I get
back two thousand dollars, I swear never
to touch cards or dice again." And Lum
ley was dead In earnest this time. Still, be
would accept noUIng from bis psi doer.
Tbe night Ue Ocean Belle was signalled
into port, Lumley's Pardner beckoned
Moute BUI aside, (I reckon you have beard

short-card player west of the old Mississip

he passed he dropped a small, compact
package Into Ue gambler' baud ; theu,
slouching his sombrero over his eyes, be

Pausing in Ue street, Lumley's Pardner
looked anxiously down. It would have
been dark but for tbe street lamps, for it
was full two hours to moon-rise. But down
b, tbe wbarf shone out Ue gleam of a new
signal light, which, poised at mast-bead,
glowered through tbe dark like tbe fiery
eye of a gigantic Cyclope; Ue Ocean Belle
was In. Ten minutes later, pushing his
way through Ue bustling crowd that
througed Ue deck, he hurried across tbe
deck and made bis way straight to Ue

Oddly enough Lumley had Just finished a

PURITY 8F AMERICA.. StCIAL LIFE.
The present writer has'ho aesitation in
saying Uat Ue social life of America, taken
as a whole, and Ue whole country over, Is
Ue purest to-day la aU Christendom. Hav
ing traveled In most European countries,
and having lived somewhat In France aud
Germany, and many years ia England, this
sUtement is made deliberately and In view
of a wide social experience. Here in Eng
land. Ue purest of all the European SUtes,
marriage Is contracted upon a much lower
plane than In America. The business ele
ment enters into It, not only presumably,
but confessedly. FromUe middle eUsses
up, Ue money consideration Is debated aad
arranged. Ia social life many excursions
far afield of Ue decalogue are not only
winked at, but extenuated. It ia common
ly reported that two of Ue most important
members of Ue present cabinet aro living
Immoral domestic lives, aad yet not a news-
paper in England would venture to intimate
Uls fact, and It baa not Ue least Importance
in Ue eyes ol Mr. Gladstone, who Is some
what unctuous In bis religion, or of any
one eUe in Ue kingdom, so far as one can
discover. This would be an impossible
case in America. No President would
dream of calling Into bis cabinet a man liv
ing In unholy domestic relation. Every
newpaper in America would herald such a
violation of social decency with no bated
breath, and an evil day would It bo for
America when the public press snould lack
Ue disinterestedness and high moral cour
age to do so.
Tbe New York papers aro for tbe most
part, the only American papers quoted in
England, andUey are no Impartial Index of
Uo tone of American political and social
Ufe. Indeed,New York political and social
life Is one thing, and American political and
social life quite another thing.
Of course Ue Vanderbllt ball bas been
quoted oh aU hands, and ridiculed and scoff
ed at as a highly-scented bit of American
vulgarity. But the Vanderbllt ball Is no
expression ol Ue social life of tbe fifty mil
lions or seir-respectiag, hard-working, honest-living,
God-rearing people or America.
Yet even so fair and radical a paper as the
PaU-Mal! GautU hurls IU nastjr and bitter
Innuendoes and moral reflections broadcast
against tbe corrupt social life of the Amer
ican SUtes. It It pretty nearly time that
some said Uat tbe political life or tbe Uni
ted 8tates'bas less of nepotism In It, less or
family privilege and class prerogative In it
than tbe political lire and legislation of any
country on Ue face of tbe earU. Whoev
er might ssy it would only tell tho simple
truth. . . .

Bichard Irwin had toiled slowly and
wearily up tbe twelve filgbU or stairs
which led to Ue poor abode, and looked
long and lovingly into Ue pale, but beau
tiful face or Ue girl who bad given up
parenU, home and everything Uat bad
made lire happy to become hla wife. And
as be stood there, ber soft, white arms
twined lovingly ground bis neck, and her
deep hazel eyes upraised to bit, be saw
Uat she had been weeping, and around
Ue wan, drooping lips that In tbe happy
by-gone days were so often raised, pouting
merrily the while, to be kissed by his own,
Uere were traces or pie. Richard Irwin
shuddered as be drew the lytbe, yielding

"It Is nothing," Richard replied, kissing
"Lemon pie, too," be murmured. In

"My God I This Is terrible.''
Just then a noise as or some ono drag

a messenger boy kicked open the door, and
walking to where Richard Irwin sat, band
ed him a telegram. Ue toro open tbe en

message, Ue boy looking over his shoulder
to see Uat everything waa all right.

THE VACUUM THEORY.
The Kansas City Journal In discussing Ue
vacuum theory lu connection with torna
does very pertinently remarks :
It Is vCry strange bow an error once tol
erated will be persisted In. Half tho wrong
thinking in the world comes from the habit
ol men In accepting some wise saw and re
peating It without ever stopping to criticise
ThU fact is ilally exemplified In tbe repe
tition or the vacuum theory la tbe tornado.
We bear senslblo men, men who would be
offended If you were to say they were not
educated, tell bow tbe vacuum In tbe tor
nado "sucks up" trees, bouses, debris, etc
Now bow can a vacuum tuck up anythlog?
Put a feather into an exhausted receiver
and It will drop like astono. There cannot
be a vacuum wiU one end ol Ue tube open
and Ue lower end of Uo tornado cloud
must be open or Ue trees and bouses could
not get Into It; or tbe upper end must be
opea for Uem to get out in elUer case
there cannot be a vacuum.
Then wbat ia Uere to hold up Uto vacu
um, which like aa Imaginary stovepipe
stands UUrt In Uls whirling mass ol vapor
and surging air, going sixty to ninety miles

custion of iu velocity ? Did anybody ever
