They Tell Their Own Story.
Midnight was past and the lights
of tho vessels lying at anchor in tho
stream were beginning to be extingu
ished, when two men hurried from
different directions towards the shore.
Tho elder of the two hud already
reached the strand and was preparing
to make a leap, the design of which
was not to be mistaken; but at that
instant the younger seized him by tho
"Sir, 1 believe you want Id drown
" Yon have guessed it. What is
t hat to you V"
This was the answer, spoken in the
most atigrj tone.
f'JNothing, 1 know. 1 would si tit ply
request you to wait a few minutes-?
when if you like, we will make, the
great journey together, arm in arm?
the best way of dying.
With those words the younger ex
tended his hand to the elder, whose
was not withheld. The younger con
tinued, ill a'J.onc of seeming enthusi
"So be it ! Arm in nrin ! Truly, I
did not dream that a human heart
would beat with mine in this last,
hour. 1 will not neck to know who
you are?an honest man or a villinn.
Come, let us begin the journey
The older bold the young man buck
and, fixing his dim, half?extinguished
eyes searchingly upon tbe counten
ance of bis companion, exclaimed :
"Hold!' You sccin to lite too young
to end your lilc by suicide. A man of
your years has still a brilliant, allur
ing future in Iii-, grasp!"
"Brilliant VI answered the young
man, scornfully. "What have I to
hoj>e for ill the midst of a world full
of .wickedness, falsehood, treachery
und ?tihappiness? Come!?quick !"
"You arc still young] You must
have had very sorrowful experiences
to make life already thus insupporta
"1 despise mankind."
"Without exception ?'.'
"Well, then, you have now perhaps
found a man whom you will not
necessarily despise. I have, believe
me, during my whole life, lived an
"Really! Thai is highly indicat
ing. It's a pity I had not earlier
made your acquaintance."
"Leave me to die alone, young man.
Live on. Believe me, time heals all
wounds, and there arc men of honor
yet to be found."
"Now, if you lake this view, why are
you hurrying so fast from this world V
J'Oh, I am an old, sickly man, un
able to make a livelihood; a man wio
can not, will not longer see his only
child, his daughter, blighting youth,
and laboring da)' and night to support
"How, sir? Have you a daughter
who docs this for you'?" asked the
yotirig man, surprised.
"And with what endurance, with
what love, di.es she sacrifice herself
for hie ! She works lor me, she goes
hungry for me, and bus duly (he
tciulercst words of love?a sweet .-mile
for mc abvayp."
"And you want to .commit suicide ?
A rc you mad V"
"Shall 1 murder my daughter ? The
life which she is now leading is her
certain death," answered the old niail,
in a despairing voice.
"Good sir, come with me to the
nearest inn that is still open. You
will relalc to me your history, and, if
you like, I will lot you hear ininoi So
much, however, will J say to you be
forehand : Chase rill thought of self
murder out of your head. I ain rich;
henceforth you and your daughter
shall lead a pleasant life."
The old man followed the younger
without opposition. A few minutes j
later the elder began :
"My history is soon told. J was a
merchant's clerk, but always unlucky.
As I had nothing by inheritance and
the young girl 1 married was poor, J
was never able to commence bin in ess
on my own account and remained on
! till old age in n dependent, subordi
nate position. Finally, I was dis
charged on account ot my ycare, and
thon began the struggle for subsis
tence. My wife died of trouble, and
now my poor child is wearied to gain
m}' support. I cannot bear to see her
working herself to death for me?
therefore, it is bettor I go. Now, you
"Friend," exclaimed the young
man, "you are the most fortutidlc man
I ever encountered in my life. It is
insane to call that misfortune-. To
morrow 1 will make my will, and you
shall he?no resistance?my heir.
The coining; ight is my last. Before
this, however, I must see your daugh
ter, out. of pure curiosity. I would
for once sec how one looks who really
deserves I lib name of woman !"
"But, young man, what can it bo
thai thus early has made you so un
happy ?" queried tbe cl-.er, much
"J believe it. was the wealth which
my father left me. I was the only
son of the riebe*!, hanker of this city.
My father died livo years ago, leav
ing mo more than was good for nie.
Since that time I have been deceived
and betrayed by every one, without
exception, with whom 1 have had any
connection. Some have preloaded a
friendship for nie?on account, of my
money. Others have pretended to
love me.?again for thy money; and so
it went on. I ol ten mingled, in the
garb of a simple workman, with the
masses, and thus one day became
acquainted with a charming being, ;>
young girl, to whom my whole heart
.-non went oH in love. 1 disclosed to
her neither m\ name nor my position.
1 longed to be loved for myself alone,
and ibr a time it appeared as if I were
going to be happy?at last, at last !
The. young girl and I, whom she still
regard* d as a simple workman, met
every afternoon on the Marcusphttx,
where we walked up nud down to
gether [Kissing nmny happy hours.
One day my dear girl appeared with
red eyes?she had been weeping?and
told inc that we must part, confessing
that her life belonged to another! \V ilk
these words she lore herself from me
and disappeared in the crowd. Her
faithfulness decided my destiny.
Vainly did 1 rush into the pleasures
which so-called .good society has to
?fter, but found my lo.st peace of soul
never?never ! 1 theu determined to
bring my joyless existence to a close."
"Unhappy young man,1' said the
older, wipiug his eyes; "l?om my
whole heart I pity you. I must
acknowledge that 1 was more fortun
ate than you, for I, at least, was by
two women?my wife and daughter?
"Will yon give me your address,
good sir, that 1 may convince myself
bf.jiw truth of your story? It is not
exactly my trust, but I sec to believe.
To-morrow I will arrange my a Hairs
as 1 have already told you. You will
remain at this inn to-night, and in the
morning early 1 w ill return, (.live tue
your word of honor that you will not
leave this house until 1 come back,
and that you will not. in the Kteati
li inc speak to any one of what has
taken place between us?"
"You have my word ! Go lo my
dwelling, to my daughter, and you
will find that I have told you but the
simple truth. My name is Wilhelm
S?lms. More is my address."
With these words he handed (he
young man a paper, giving the ad
dress of his dwelling. It lay in ? su
burb inhabited by the power classes,
at some distance from the city proper.
"And my name is Curl Toedor,"
hereupon said Ihoyoung man. " Take

A fortnight later, and in the niidst
of tho*grcotest splendor, the marriage
of the rich young banker, Carl Toed01*1
and Bertha Salms took place.
Both branches of tho legislature
have agreed upon the following appro
priations lor the coming fiscal year.
It will bo seen at once that little of
that boasted reform so much talked
of during the past four months is
embodied in this bill of appropria
