"Now, ftfrmrlMll,'' went on Will calmly,
"I ineall tu be it gentleman a literary man

thing coming out Iu onn of tho magailnes,
aud I mean to go up lo London at onco and
look about mo."
Wn have all heard of tho prldo and exul
tation with which a young author receives
hlaflist proofs, bnt that was not at all the
ca-e with Will. He look them finite calmly,
na a matter of course. It was the Aral thing
he had ever sent lo a magazine, ami he

he would write something longer next time.
Then ho should get mure money.

Hut he went tn Loudon, and frequented
tho Hritish Museum, where he smelt Ih"
books, till Lis body was an upset as his mind
would have been If he had read lliem. And,
though the bonks tu the reading-room enter
the brain chiefly by tho nose, there are other
studies which go through the eyes studies
of human nature.
The most interesting of these to unsophis
ticated Will was a sad looking young lady
who spent a groat deal nf tlraeover the cata
logue, tiho became so depressed that some
times she wai quite limp certainly, the
great volume- are exhausting and Will
gradually gavo her more nnd more help with
her "similes." Sim was a pale, fragile girl,
mostly dressed in a peculiarly made gown of
dirty mustatd color, which Will, who thought
Miss Duloie'fl cheerful muslins and hand

though he learned belter iu lime. Hut she
had an enormous amount of "poetry in her

It is leu years later, and Mlsa Dulcle
S.vkc", now a' lady of the malum ago of
twenty-eight, is silting In a splendid draw,
ing-rnmn iu Cromwell Road, Kensington.
Hut these splendid drawlng.rooms aro little
better than splendid prisons for many young
ladies. Dnlcie had been silling here for the
heat part of three days, for her aunt wanted
the carriage, and it wan "not proper" for n
young lady to go out alone.
She was envying with all her heart the
middle-class gills who walked along the
ranseway quite free nnd happily iudlfFerent
to "society," w lien sue baw a hansom pull
up at the door, ami n Ilue-lnoklng tnau of

w.n sorry neither her unelo nor annl waB at

something oddly familiar about him.
"I am afraid you don't remember ine.MIss

you were at Hepburn. "
"Surely surely, you are not John (lose I
mean Mr. (loss t" hastily correcting herself.
He looked such a gentloniau I
He laughed pleasantly. "I am glad yon
remember me, Miss Dulcle,"
"Aud I am glad nay, delighted to see
yon, Mr. Uoss. I am longing to hear some
news of dear old Hepburn. Since my father
died I Beein to have been quite cut off from
it; my brother is a shocking correspondent.
How Ih everybody, and what is all the place
''Well, I am Borry lo Bay at least, of

Hie placo is not nearly bo pretty as it used
to he, aud it is my fault; but I really could

"You have au immense manufactory, I
"Well, yes, it is a gaud size, and I have
had to build a good many workmen's cot
tages; iu fact, Hie place Is quitea town."
"I hear it is a beautifully clean and or
derly town, too, and that you do a great deal
of good, Mr. Ooss," with n kindly smile.
She fell she had been a little hard on

1 am absolutely stupid, yet here I sit all the
day idle, when I could earn my 'penny' as
well as anybody, only I haven't the chance.
It Isn't fair."
There were positively tears In her brown
eyes, and she was actually talking tn the
young man from tho shop as if lie were her
father oniifessor far more earnestly than
sho had ever spoken tu any "parson;" bnt
spiritual power is ninth more personal than
"Oli, Miss Dulcle, do forgive my saying

"I wish 1 lived down at the Hall again; I

even if it was only the hackneyed ground
of clothing iluhs and mothers' meetings."
"Du you really wish you lived at the Hall,
Miss Dulcle f 1 am so glad; that is just
what I came about."
l'rlvalely she had rather wondered what
he had come for, but she had been so dull,
tho visit was an agreeable interruption, ami
John was not the sort of man she could, even
if site had wished, either snub or patronize.
"I don't know whether you are uware
that that I bought tho old Hall 1"
" I'm bought it, Mr. (loss J"
Certainly there was a touch of hauteur.
Hln) was shocked. The prejudices of a life
are not overcome in nail nn hour,
"It was merely as nil investment, Miss
Dulcle, I assure you. I shouldn't think of
living there myself nt least, not atprrsuut.
What I fehould like better than anything
would be for you lu take the place. I am
very old-fashioned iu some tilings, I like
old families belter than new ones."

and there Is plenty of furniture there,"
"You are exceedingly kind tu give mo tho
Aral refusal, and I would take it gladly if I
could, but It Is quite uut of my power."
John was silent. He leant forward biting
his lip, and there was a line between his
eyed as he staled at the carpet. It was a
crucial moment in Ills life, ami he knew it.
He had been working all these years with
one object Iu view; nt tlrsl a faint, far-off
star, lately nearer, Ibis morning apparently
almost within reach, and now, unless he
could bridge over the dlltiuiilty of acet aa, he
would be balllo'l after all.

Tho day that he had pictured to himself
ror years Had come at last, as, barelioaileil,
he met Miss Dulcle at thodoor. She looked
tike a queen, he thought, mid she certainly
was beautifully dressed In gray and silver,
with a hunollnf yellow roses In her dress
and In her hat. He was glad she looked bo
nice, for lie Imped this was her future king
dom, and the admiration of Ills Work-people
was not a mailer of absolute ludllfernticei
Many curious eyes Were cast tltioti her as
she went from room to room, aud many a
kuowlng look passed between tile "hands."
And if It was u proud day for li till , It was
an astonishing one for her. Why, tho placo
was inagnlllcont far finer thvi a mere
house, however furnished It was a palace.
John floss was a king; his very glance was a
command. Hundreds of men and women
looked to him alone as their earthly provi
dence; and thorn was the tings engine feed
lug all the world by coolly waving lis arms
about. And such millions and millions of
biscuits I One would think nobody In all
creation ever ate anything else. What a
moJern version of the old primitive bread
Dulcle felt lo tier heart's core the sttipnn
doustiess nf tho place, ami Hie work and the
power of the man beside her.
"Won't you lake one?" lie said, offering
her a blsoult of a certain kind.
Thro was a gravity and solemnity about
him as ho offered llf and she took it as a

Tho threo months passed away on jr too
quickly, and John was no nearer his heart's

to comfort himself with the thought that In

It was almost the last day of their stay,
and John was standing In a very dlsconBo

hoisted up to Hie top story an immense
height, six or seven rials.
As the great Iron clamps were being tltl-M

The worse thanslupid workman overhead
had unfastened them from the cask, aud
calmly given them a kick over to be ready
for the next batch, without iookiug to see

THE MERLIN BALLET.
A Truly Pnrlslan Acme of Mnilre sslntr.
Home of our newspaper have been com
plalnlDgthattheballetof "Merlin" impasses
evety other battel that we have had so
far In the soanllness ot the dresses. It
mini ho confessed that when the audience at
the Metropolitan Is shocked there must he
some very extraordinary dpeclaole upon the
stage, for fnw balled that I have seen ilia.
ctoBettfmrlclf df woman as can bo seen by n
glance around llio bo-teir nt either llio Me

one lady remark that fortunately the ballet
was as short as the clothes which .the ballet

strongly ami another woman, equally ob
Ecrtsnti said that the beautiful stuffs worn
by llio lirtllel were too costly lo gn very far,
from which 11 tttglil bo Inferred that ttie
more money is spent upon the ballet at the

the spectacle. A gentleman of my acquaint-rtnt-ej
who has seen ballet performances In

and who watohed tlie laUnt lu "Merlin"
with a critical eye on Monday night, lelli
me that we havo now got about as far ni

of our opcratlo managers the old slory whloli
Is told uf Dumas when he was manager of
the Tort Ht. Martin Theatre in l'arls. At a
last rehearsat some of tho ballet girls' who
were to represent the nymphs In Ihe Oarden
of rtdon oatno to Dumas nnd told him that no

"Send out and buy twenty yards of gauze,"
answered the manager, nnd, according to

I confess that for mysotf I could see ntitli
lug very awful lu Hill much-talked. uf
"Merlin" ballet, and I Bitspecl that It is
simply the perfection of art which has
shocked onr good people. Until lately our
manufacturers of ballet tights have not suc
ceeded In Imitating flesh ho as to make the
Illusion complete) now, however, they have
done better, aud although the traditional
tights were worn as usual last Monday night,
they were so remarkably well made that I
suspect many people In tho audience were
afraid that the young ladles of the ballet
had forgotten to put on the most Im
portant part of their costume. 1 mot tn the
lobby an old gentlemen from Northern New
York, who was Inexpressibly shocked at tho
display, and whose remarks. If put Inlo print,
would be worth a hundred such letters as
have appeared within the last few days iu
our newspapers condemning the iniquity of
this ballet. "I looked around me tn the
boxes," said the old gentleman, "and I saw
a number of fashionable women and young
girls naked almost down to tho waist. I
looked on the Btage and thero I saw hun
dreds of young women naked almost up to
the waist. Whatarewu coming tuf Sodom
and Uomorrah I" Is it not rathor hard that
when the costumors of tho company succeed
to perfection in accomplishing what they set
out to do there Is a howl of Indignation f

tN. Y. Tribune
Sin: That part of the San Francisco des
patch In a recent Sunday Tribune which' re
lated to the resignation of Mr. Charles A.
Wetmore from his position as chief ssocullve
officer of the California Stale Vlticullural
Commission does that geutleman very great
injustice. No other man iu California has
given so much time and attention to the
subject of viticulture; no man in that State
or out of It has been or is a more faithful,
earnest friend of that Industry; uoother man
in the country has done so much to elevate
and advance its true interests, and surely
no one' was bo well equipped lo fill the place
from which he has resigned. Indeed, his
place cannot be filled, as those who have by
their misrepresentations and abuse driven
liim in sheer disgust Into resigning will And
out to their cost ami deep regret.
Willi respect lo the bills introduced in
CnngresB last winter, nearly overy honest
Uastern wine-maker took au interest aud a
more or less active part, and every one of
them will bear witness to tlie faithfulness
and ability with which Mr. Wetmore worked
for California Interests. The only ones who
stood aloof and objected and criticised were
those who are engaged iu one way or another
iu. nuking or handling artificial, slretohel,
or otherwise bedeviled wines and brandies.
Recent records lu Health Officer Udsou's
office will show where some nf these stand
on this question. Whatever the outcome
may be, you may rest assured that Mr.
Wetmore represents the brains and the
decency of the California wine interests, aud
his withdrawal from" the commission Is noth
ing short of a calamity. Those who are
snarling at his heels are either the wino
stretchers and fabricators, or possibly n set
of tight-listed, hlde-hnUnd farmers who know
uu bettor than to Maine him because they
cauuot gel $lU0a tun for their grapes and $1
a gallon for their wines. I am very re

Josephus llllllm, nu old fellow who lives
far away from business stilfe and social
hypocrisy, rnmn to town the other day aud
called at Col, Hulgartli's taw office, ami Hut
garth, being a prospective candidate, invited
old Josephus home with hiui. Josephun is
a very quiet man, .1 man who longs fur
privacy if he cau take a lolled ham along
with him. His modesty lias never placed
an obstruction in the way of his appetite, so
when Hnlgarth said, "Uncle Jo, you must
take dinner with me," Uncle Jn threw a
quid uf tobacco on the floor aud allowed that
he wasn't very hungry, but put on nn air
which gave the lawyer cause to hope that
his hospitality would uot be thrown away.
The. old follow ate with that lack of re
serve which pays a high but expensive com
plimeiit to cookery. Mrs. Hnlgarth was, sho
declared, much pleased with the plain aud1
unassuming old man, aud when he went
away she hoped that lie might come again.
Just theu she remarked:
"Wonder what has become of those silver
nut-crackers f I put them at that old man's
plate, bnthusiirelydid not take them. It's
very Btrange, though. What nn mrth does
that old nun, living away out iu llio hills,
waut with nut crackers T No, I wou'l be
lieve that he Is guilty,"
Willi woman's luliitllon, however, she
did believe it, and the next night when the
Colonel came home she asked 1
"When do you suppose that old fuel is
going tn luiug my nut-craikcra back I"
"Oil, he ham'tgot your uut-craikers."
"I Just know ho lias. I saw hiui looking
"Yei," the hnabaud replied, "and while
lie was hern 1 saw him looking at you, but
I noticed that he did nut taku you nway
"Oh, please don't be a fool. Those uut
crackers 11 led tu htlong to my graudinither,
ami I have been offered a good pi leu fur
them, hut I wouldn't part with them."
"It seems that you have,"
Hhe.glarud at hhn and replied; "When 1
married you I did not think that I would be
expected lo entertain thieves."
Just then there ctmu a ring at tho door
bell. Old Josephus was shown Into Ihu sit
"Colonel," raid he, "you don't blame a
man when he's bothered lo rldu a long ills,
tauee after knowledge, do you f"
"An' you dou't mind answvrlu'a 'poitant
question, do you?"
"Wall," continued tlie old man, pulling
his hand Into the tall pocket of his brown
Jeans nut and hauling out the 11 ill-crackers,
"nhutsorto' blauiud bullet moulds du you
call these, anyhow ? I'm a putty smart
mau, an' wife she Mn't slow, an' wo tried
an' tried, but blamed if we could get thn
uang 11- tuese moulds. 'Lowed tu gu out
squirrel ahootlug, au as I tell you, I dune
my best, but nary a bullet."
"They are my nut-crackers. Give 'em
beret" screamed Mrs. Hiilgarlh,
"Take 'umj take 'em," said the old mau.
"I'm mighty glad to kuow that they ain't
bullet moulds, for my mlud U relieved pow
erful. While I wns at your table, au' you
kep'ou teltln'iue to lie'p myse'f, I thinks,
'hanged ef I don't ho'p myso'f totheiu bullet
moulds, fur these folks ain't go' no use for

home I told my wife that I reckoned that I
had a leetlu the finest bullet moulds she
ever need. Wife Is a mighty hand fur fluery,
au' I thought bhe'd taku n duck fit wheu she
