The Behests of Expediency Thrown To

a pang of jealously through every fiber
of his heart as he noted a ring he had
never seen before, on one of the fingers
of hee lefthand, "is that an engagement
"I will not deceive you Mr. Kiljordan,"
replied the young lady, blushing deeply;
"it is what might be considered a con
ditional engagement ring. The matter
is not positively settled as yet, but
mama thinks Mr. Peduncle-"
"Then it maybe that I am not too
late," said Bardolph Kiljordan, pas
sionately, the violence of his emotions
breaking down every barrier of reserve
that the cold, calculating behests of
expediency had erected between himself
and his heart's idol. "Irene' I had
not thought to say to say to you for
months, perhaps years the words that
now come thronging for utterance and
will no longer bestified. I had intended
to wait until time should prove the
depth and sincerity of the feelinings with
which you have inspired me, and until
I could speak with the confidence of one
who is certain of his foothold and has
gained an assured position in life. But
you know something of my prospects,
Irene, and I have sometimes dared to

ing to you. Can you not give me some
hope that I have not aspired in vain

bings of mine which almost choke my
utterance? Give me the right, Irene, to
to call you ny own and to feel sure that
no man, henceforth and forever, can
stand between me and all earthly happi
ness. Will you?"
"I will, Bardolph!"
And the eloquent stillness that fol
lowed the softly spoken words of the
fair young girl was punctuated by that
old yet ever new sound, that rapturous,
wild, fervid, unpronounceable percussion
whose ecstatic articulation marks the
climax of two trusting lives. "Irene,"
said the youth, after a pause, "you will
let me remove this 'conditional engage
ment ring' now, will you not?"
"Certainly, Bardolph, though it is
really of no importance. Take it off if
"And now tell me of that conditional
engagement, my own."
"It was an engagement to meet Mr.

CHIEF JUSTICE FULLER.
How His Nominanon I. Regarded by the Lead
The nomination of Melville W. Fuller to
be Chief Justice of the United States Su
preme Court is variously regarded by the
leading dailies. The New York World
seems not to have known Mr Fuller very
intimately, but it notes with satisfaction
that "he is highly spoken of by his neigh
bors." The Sun touches the nomination
with equal lightness, merely mentioning
the fact that the President has thus put "in
the way to become illustrious" a name that
has not been "widely known." The Times
believes that the appointing power sought
"high legal attainments." "experience,"
"assured standing" and 'integrity of char
acter which could not be nasiled" and
"succeed in his purpose." Of a similar
bent is the opinion of the Democradec Star,
which, in commending the selection felici
tales the President upon his "surprises," to
which, it says, the p.-ople have become ac
customed and corsiderate because of the
rare judgment with which they are
The millennium is not at hand just yet,
and so the Tribune finds little in the selec
tion to approve. Some men in the country
are "better known" than Mr. Fuller; there
fore, there will be "disappointment." If
he is to be "judged by his record as a party
leader," the showing does not strike the
Tribune as 'impressive," and Mr. Fuller
"cannot hope to come to the great place
thus suddenly conferred upon him with
the ready and pleased acquiescence of the
country." The Herald regrets that "what
should be a prize to the foremost lawyer in
the land or a promotion to the most worthy
Justice on the Supreme Bench" is given to
a man "outside of the court," who, so far
as its information goes, may be known
only in the "technical inner circles of the
In marked contrast to these two opinions
is that of Frank Hatton's sturdy Republi
can organ, the Press, which considers it to
the "advantage of the man" that he is not
so "widely known." To the Press this
argues that he "is a lawyer primarily," and
it admits patriotically that the country will
drop partisan politics for a day in order to
"congratulate itself upon the fact that the

already fixed for the most exalted judicial

NEW YoRK. May 2.--In the General
Methodist Conference today the address of
the Bishops, reviewing revival work since
the last Conference, four years ago, stated
that within that time the membership has
increased from 1,769,534 to 2,095,935. The
Church has now 12 theological seminaries,
54 colleges and 154 academies for the edu
cation of candidates for the ministry. The
value of this property is a little over $25,

done a great work in the South, not only
among bia'ks, but among whites as well.
For the firs: time in the history of the
Conference women have been sent as dele
gates. The Bishops do not think that
women are eligible.
The report of the committee appointed
to report on the eligibility of women dele
gates was brought forward. It is against
the eligility of women. The report was
signed by eleven members of the commit
tee; six of the mnembers refused to sign it.
THlden's Doctor's Bill.
The physician and friend of the late
Samuel J. Tilden, Dr. Charles E. Sin
mons, was notified by his lawyers, Messrs.
Fetterich, Silkman & Seybel, yesterday to
prepare the items of his bill for professional
services to the great statesman during his
long illness. This bill of particulars was
asked for in court by the lawyers repre
senting the executors of the will, and will
be filed in about three weeks. The sum
total is $143,000.
Mr. Fetterich said the bill will of course
be very long and take quite a while to
make out. He could not give any idea of
the charges, as that would not be fair to
his client, but all the world shall see it as
soon as it is ready. He felt quite sanguine
that the bill would be paid in full, and that
it would not be found unreasonable by the
best medical practitioners in the city.-N.

THE OPERATION A SUCCESS.
Mrs. Schick Has Non a Fighting Chance of Re- I
covering Her bight.
The wonderful operation that was per
formed by Dr. L. Webster Fox, of this city,
on Sunday last, by transplanting the cornea 3
of a rabbit's eye to that of Mrs. Annie C
Schick, the young patient at the German- t
town Hospital, was last night found to be (
a grand success.
Mrs. Schick. who has been kept in a dark e
room with her eyes securely bandaged ever i
since the operation, has been resting quietly e
and everything has seemed to be in her
favor. Last evening Dr. Fox, together
with Dr. Cameron, the resident physician
of the Germantown Hospital. visited the
patient and removed the bandages. Upon
examination it was found that the eyelids
had not developed the slightest swelling,
every nerve was in a perfectly normal con
dition, the graft had remained exactly in
place, the edges are all united and the graft, I
which has a perfect appearance, is as trans
parent as crystal and has attached itself to l
the basement membrane. t
So good a result was not even dreamed
of by Dr. Fox, who said, enthusiastically: t
"Von Hipple expect that at the end of three
days the graft will be hazy, but this is not
so-it is at once transparent. I believe now
that the opalescent tissue which has ob
scured the sight will become transparent.
At any rate, Mrs. Schick has now a fight
ing chance of recovering her sight."
When the news of the success got aboard
among the medical men of Germantown
last night the telephone at the hospital was
kept in constant use by physicians who lost
no time in congratulating Dr. Fox.-Phil

On the 12th day of June, 1863, I
ritnessed a duel between Captain Jones,

ien had been fighting each other for
ix months, with the fortunes or battle

pint as to which should holdthe bridge,
hey agreed to fight a duel, the con
luerer to hold the bridge undisputed for

hallenge, and Fry accepted. The terms

Fry was a man full six feet high, 1
slender, with long, wavy, curling hair, t

lemon than the man.
There was nothing ferociousabout him;

mith county thatI am entirely cured, with no
races of the disease left, and all effected by
he magic healing properties of B. B. B., which
consider the grandest, purest and most power
ul blood remedy known to man. I have been
ubject to imiamImatory attacks since ten
'ears of age, and up to the present time have
ad four. The last spell came on me n No
ember, 1885, over a year ago, at which time
was conilned to my bed for eight weeks,
assing the nights in misery, with no sleep ex
ept when produced by narcotics and various
piates. The week previous to using B. B. B.
ip to that time I had only eaten six meals, and
ould scarcely sit up without support; but
.fter using three bottles I was able to relish
ny meals and to walk up town, and after six
ottles had been used, thank heaven, I was en
irely cured, and not the slightest pain felt
ince that time. When I returned to business
n February, my weight was 145 pounds, but
radually increased until my regular weight
-as again attained, 210 pounds. The noticeable
act in what I have so cheerfully stated is, that
his unparalleled and remarkable discovery
3. B. B., cured me in mid-winter, at the very
ime my sufferings and misery were the
reatest. I take it on myself as a practical
truggist to heartily, cheerfully, as well as con
eientiously recommend this glorious blood
emedy to all sufferers of rheumatism or blood
roubles, and not only myself, but the firm of
[eKay & Adams, who handle it, will cheer
nlly indorse its superior merits.

Would not take $1,000 for it - Re.
lieved of Fifteen Years' Suffer
ing from Dyspepsia.
ALAPAHA, GA., June '", 1587.- B. B. B. Com
pany, Atlanta, Ga.-Gentlemen: Ihad suffered
from that terrible disva e, dyspepsia, for over
fifteen years. and during that time tried every
thing I could hear of, and spent over three
hundred dollars in doctors' bil!s, withrut re
ceiving the slightest benetit. Indeed. I con
tinued to grow worse. Finally, after I de
spaired of obtaining relief, a friend recom
mended B. B. B. (Botanic Blood Balm.) and I
began using it ; not, however, expecting to be
benefitted. After using half a bottle I was
satisfied that I was being benefitted, and when
the sixth bottle was taken I felt like a new
man. I would not take $1,000 for the good it
has done me; in fact, the relief I derived from
it is priceless. I firmly believe that I would
have died had I not taken it.
