A STORY OF
THOMAS P. MONFORT.
PAUL AND IAwIST.
Louise accepted Paul's books now
and with her mother's aid she studied
them well and faithfully. She had at
tended school suficiently back east to
lav the foundation for a fair education.
and, being bright-minded and quick to
learn, she made excellent progress with
her studies and bid fair to gain a good
education even under such unfavorable
Mary was a good scholar and well
adapted to the duties of teaching, and
she never tired of aiding Louise. Then
Paul came over quite frequently of
evenings and he was not by any means
averse to giving such assistance as lay
in his power. In fact he was so anxious
to teach Louise and pursued the task
with such diligence and earnestness
that it was apparent that he de
rived fully as much pleasure, if not
profit, from it as Louise did. Paul
was a most exemplary teacher, and
nothing was too dificult or too hard for
his efforts so long as it was for Louise's
good. He never wearied of explaining
dry, tough arithmetical problems or of
conjugating juiceless verbs. But it
must be remembered that Paul's pupil
was a select one, and it is more than
probable that almost any young man,
feeling as he did, would have done
equally well, or at least labored with
fully as much zeal.
Louise not only progressed in her
studies, but she spent some very happy
evenings, and theremaining months of
winter passed off much more pleasantly
than she had anticipated. John and
Mary always welcomed Paul to their
house, and as they came to be better ac
quainted with him they grew to liking
him more and more. He was of a happy
disposition, and he had a way of muak
ing people forget their sorrows and
troubles, and often he chirked John up
-out of a fit of downheartedness and
brought a smile to his lips and a twinkle
of pleasure to his eyes. Paul made it a
point to take the cheerfulest view of
the future, and sometimes he went off
into the wildest flights of fancy in
speaking of what he contemplated ac
complishing for himself. His dreams
'were extravagant, but dream ingr them
'was better than repining.
Paul had studies of his own. He
was reading medical works and was
going to be a doctor. He had taken one
course at a medical college and hoped
to return the next fall to take another
if he was fortunate enough to raise a
crop on his claim and get money
to pay his way. His sole possession
*was the claim, and he could mortgage
~t'tas-Green had his, "on long time and
-easy terms," but he hoped to have ahome
*ere long for himself and Louise, so he
hesitated to raise money in that way.
Old Markham had monsy, but he was
opposed to Paul's plans, and he refused
Ito let him have adollar on any kind of
"It's all blamed foolishness," Mark
hain said, "this idea of studying to be a
doctor. I never got no fool notion that
Iwstogood to work for a honest
iinan' by jinks, I ain't goin' to
furnish no money to help on anybody
that has got sich a notion. Paul kin
study medicine if he wants to, but he
kin do it at his own expense. I ain't
in on makin' gentlemen out o' fellers
that 'ud better be at work tillin' the
soil Not a bit I ain't, an' by jinks I
*won't do it, nuther.".
But Paul's design was not to be
thwarted by that sort of talk, and he
resolved to work his own way. lHe
planned to raise a crop and get the
means to continue his study that way
if possible, and, if the crop failed again,
he would mortgage his land.
So the winter passed and the spring
came, and a soft, warm haze lay
over all the endloss stretch of prairie.
Again the 'poor settlers brought out
their plows and set to work to break
the soil and plant the crops, full of hope
and-confidcee. With the return of the
bright spring sunshine, came back the
grantl'epectations that ever buoy up
the hearts of honest, struggling mor
tals, and fhe faces of the pioneers shed
'theloud of fear and doh'bt that had
*hung over them like a dark mantle.
John Green was among the more in
dustrious and persevering of all the
farmers in his section. lie began work
early, and every day he was in his ileid
plowing and planting. Hie had a double
incentive to work, for his family must
live and that debt on the farm must be
paid. lHe went at it cheerfully, and as
he trudged to and fro across the field in
the' long furrows, singing bllihely, no
one would have guessed what pangs of
trouble had racked his soul all through
the long, tedious winter, lie was not
of a brooding disposition, and even un
der the most trying circumstances he
could feel cheerful so long as there was
ever so dim a ray of light before him.
He had work to do now, and there was
a prospect of good results, so he felt
confident once more, and in the thought
of the bright future which his fancy
painted he lost sight of the hardships of
"It is a long lane, Mary," he some
times. saidl, "that has no turu. and I be

Paul, too, appied himself oliis work,
and as he ploded after the plow he
dreamed of the future, of the time when
he should be a doctor and have a cozy
little home with Louise for its mistress.
Ambition or love ought either to be suf
ficient to urge a man on to his best en
deavors: but when they combine, as
thev did in Paul's ease. there is no tell
ing what strength they will put into a
man's arm nor what determination into
Thus it was that among all the set
tlers on that great level plain there
were none that devoted themselves
more sedulously to work than John and
Paul, and as the season advanced and
the spring months gave place to
those of summer, there were no fields in
all the settlement that looked more
flourishing or promising than theirs.
And each of these men, sanguine na
tured as they were, counted the victory
won, and each in his way made his
plans for the future and constructed in
numerable castles in the air.
Every Sunday now Paul came to
John Green's house, for it was distinct
17 understood all around that Paul and
Louise were to marry by and by,
though not a word relative to the mat
ter had passed between their parents.
Often the young people read from the
same book, as they sat on a bench out
side the house, and on such occasion
they seemed to have a vast amount of
diiiculty in making out the words, for
they brought their eyes close down to
the page, their faces almost touching,
and the words they sometimes pro
nounced were not printed on the page
at all. But every person who has
courted knows how that is.
One day Paul and Louise went for a
stroll on the prairie. It was a clear,
calm Sabbath, such as summer Sab
baths usually are, and a misty haze
danced about near the green earth.
They walked on and on, mile after
mUe, and at last coming to the road
that ran over toward Paradise Park,
they turned into that and went on to
"About the 1st of September," Paul
was saying, "I shall be ready to go
back to school. There will be a year
of separation, and it will seem long,
but when it is passed I will come back
and build up a home, and then we will
marry and settle down in it to live a
happy as can be."
Louise gave a little start, and after
casting a hurried glance at Paul, looked
down and blushed. Paul noticed her
manner, and thinking it due to embar
rassment went on:
"I have not forgotten, Louise, what
you told me your mother said, and I do
not ask you to promise me anything
not until the year is out. I am quite
satisfied without it, for I know that you
love me,. and it requires no words to re
veal yonr heart to me, and no promise
to make me understand that you will be
"I do love you, Paul," Louise said,
"with all the fervor of my nature, and I
will never love you less. You are so
good and noble. But, Paul, you-"
"WVhat is it, Louise?" Paul asked.
"I-I don't k-now," Louise replied.
"I suppose I am foolish, Paul, but I
can't help it. I am so common and in
significant, and you wvill be thrown
among so many women who are beauti
ful and accomplished."
For a moment Paul was unable to
understand the girl's words, but after a
time a light began to break on his
mind, and with a light, cheerful laugh
he drew her closer to him and said:
"And so you think I will be so
blinded and dazzled by the beauty and
accomlishments of other women that I
shall forget my little girl away off out
here on the plains? Is that the bril
liant idea that has edged its way into
Louise walked on some distance be
fore she replied, half vexed at herself
for uttering words that showed she
doubted Paul's constancy, and halt glad
that she had uttered them, as it gave him
an opportunity of reasserting his love
for her. Louise was an uncommonly
sensible person, but the most sensible
girls love to play the coquette just a
little. Finally, after the lapse of a
minute or so, she looked up into Paul's
fac andl said:
"Why shouldn't you, Paul?"
"Why shouldn't I forget you?"
"Then I will ask why should I?"
"Because, Paul, I am so insignificant
and small, and you can win the loveo of
whom you please. I know there must
be grand ladies out in the world, a ad, as
compared with them, I am so conimon.
You canot help but see the difference
and know how much more worthy of
your love they arc than I."
At this point Paul pliaced his hand
over her mouth and stopped her speech.
"There, you have gone far enough,"
he said, "and I will not hear another
word. I have done nothing to deserve
so poor an opinion from you, and you
have no right to talk so. I would never
have such an opinion of you, Louise,
Paul spoke like one very deeply hurt,
and in an instant Louise was all con
trition. She saw that she had wounded
Pul, and she would not hurt him for
the world. She was anxious to make
amends, but she was at a loss how
to proeced, and again they walked
n in silence. She thought of various
things to say, but none of them were
suited to the occasion, and so at last,
when the long silence was becoming
oppressive andl she feit that something
must b'e said, she decided to come out
bobil'. and beg his forgivenness. Lay
ing her hand on his arm she looked
witfully into his face, and with lips
all a-tremble, said:
"Paul, I am a silly thing, and you
must not mind what I say. I do not
mean to dloubt you, dear, good Paul. and
I want you to forgive me, will you,
Paul, and forget what I was foolish
enough to say?"
It would have required an iron will to
withstand that tender little appe'.l,
spoken in such a soft tone, and those
mild brown eyes looking so sor'row fully
up from: beneath their long dark lashes.
It was not in the nature of things for
Paul to hold out against it for an in'

light and smiles.
"There, there, Louise," ha said, "it is
all right. I was suro you couldn't have
so poor an opinion of me, and I'm sorry
that I said anything to hurt you. We'll
forget it all and never think of it again."
And Paul bent to kiss the rosy bps
which Louise turned up to him, and the
little inisund(erstanding was at an end.
Yes, so far as l'aul was concerned it
was, but a little shade of (ubilt re
mained in Louise's heart and rankled
for a long time after.

more important things, that they entire

along running hours into minutes and
minutes into seconds. Such was the
way he treated Paul and Louise that
day, and wthen eventually they did come
back to their surroundings they found
that it was almost night, with the sun
lianging like a great red ball low down
in the sky, but a few feet from the
Louise was greatly surprised and
shocked when she saw how late it had
grown, and e xpressed a wish to return
home with all posxsible speed.
"Ah. l'aul," said she. "how could you

"Why, that the moon will shine out."

and Paul began to console and comfort.
Thus they went along for a mile or so,

But (lirectly she espied a dark cloud

"Paul." she said, "what shall we do?

"Don't. Louise," Paul replied. "Be

"No. not a bit."
"Then let's walk fast while it is light

They were humbying on thus, when just
as thle twilight began to fall they heard
the fall of a horse's feet behind them,
and soon thereafter a man on horseback
came clattering up. They thought he
was going to pass without speaking,
but when he had got in front of them
he chi .:ked his horse, and turning in the
saddle so as to face them, lifted his hat,

"Yes, entirely so. I am just out from

"Yes, quite near."
Then they went on silently again, and
Louise kept wishing that the stranger
would ride away and leave them. His
presence and his voice bored her and
made her nervous. Paul felt that his

he would rather have him go, but he

walked at such speed that Louise soon
became exhausted. The night had
come on now, and off in the south the
cloud was stealing up, while ever and

slowly from the east to the west and
vivid forks of lightning streaked the

Again they moved f6rward, but with
alow step, for with fatigue, fright and
anxiety, Louise was trembling so that
she could hardly bear her weight.
The cloud spread out, and soon the
whole heavens was obscured. The
thunder grew louder and more frequent
until it became terrific, and the light
ning flashed incessantly. Then directly
it began to rain. First a few large,
scattering drops fell, but in a moment
this was followed by a swift dash, and
a regular downpour succeeded. A
stout breeze sprang up, sweeping the
rain along in great sheets, and blinding
Paul and Louise, who were compelled
to face it.
For an hour they kept on, and all the
time their speed grew less and less,
until at last Louise, who had exerted
herself to the full of her strength, sank
to the ground. In an instant Paul was
on his knees at her side helding her
head in his arms and sheltering her
face with his hat.
"I can't go any further," she whis,
oered; "not another step."
"Then rest'here,"Paul replied. "The
rain will blow over directly and then
we can go on. I'm glad it's so warm,

the proper place for her, out there in
the night alone with her lover, and she
dreaded what her parents would think.
She never had been guilty of an act
that would shake their confidence. and
she felt that it would break her heart
if she should know they harbored even
the faintest suspicion of her. All this
came through her mind and she broke
into tears and sobs.
Paul tried to comfort her, never see

purity of his own motives took it for

the affair in its true light.
"We can't go any further," Paul said,
"until the rain is over, for we have
nothing to guide us, and if we tramped

was too weak to stand, an~d knew that
'it was impossible for her to go on even

or to describe the feeling of loneliness
that comes over one so situated.

a faint gray light began to show in the
east. They knew the morning was
coming, and they never welcomed it
more gladly in all their lives. After
several efforts Louise was able to stand.

ST. Lotis, Sept. 30.--A dispatch from
the City of Mexico says a revolution has
been precipitated in. the Republic of
Guatemala, which will unquestionably
become general. A gentleman who left
the city of Guatemala on the muoruine of
the 16th inst., and who hI:s just reachel
this city on horse back from the Mexi
can fort of Acapulco, bring information
that an outbreak occurred in Guatemala
City on the 15th inst., and was still in
progress when he left.
According to his story the people of
that city were celebrating the anniver
sary of their national holiday. It ap
pears that President Barrillas had per
sonally appointed the orators (if the day.
To this the masses took exception, and
when the crators took the rostrum, it
was the signal for a storm of stones,
which set thet to flight. they being
chased across the big plaza by a howl'nx
mob whieh shouted at the top of their
voices: "Down with the government,"
"Down with despotism and tyranny,"
STONING TIE LIBERALS.
Exciting scenes followed and every
Liberal or partisan was driven from the
p'.aza, being soundly stoned at every
step. After that the masses elected
their orators and most violent and in
cendiary speeches followed.
News of the riot spread rapidly and
soon Barrillas threw a battallion of in
fantry into the large square for the
purpose of dispersing the mob. They,
,with fixed bayonets, attempted to carry
the plaza by an assault. They were
met with a shower of stones and bullets
from revolveis. This unexpected action
of the mob put them to ignomious
flight, leaving many of their number on
the plaza. The uproar was something
to be long remembered. Members of
the mob shouted "Le..'s storm the na
tional palace. kill Barrllas and restore
the republican form of government.
Guatemala should not be ruled by dic
tators;" "The plundering of the nation
al treasury must cease."
THE ARTILLERT ORDERED OUT.
Barrillas then ordered the artillery
into the plaza and the infantry and two
cannons to guard his residence. When
the guns were turned on the mob there
was a general dispersing of them.though
they discharged revolvers at the artil
lerymen, They left the plaza, but fought
in the side street. In fact they practi
cally, during the night of the 15th, held
full control of the city, though at inter
vals they were attacked by the infantry
who shot many of them. Reports of
revclvers and rifles were to be heard all
night, and at the hour the gentlemen
giving this information left for San Jose
e Guatemala to embark for Acapulco,
fighting still was in progress. in his
conception this will cause a general re
volt throughout the entire republic of
Guatemala, and engender war in all of
the other Central American states. A
strict consorship is maintained over all
press dispatches, and the mail3 are also
trifled with to prevent the leaking out
of any information concerning the act
ual condition of the country. It is
stated that cable communication with
Guatemala City hes been interrupted.
BARRILLAS IS MASTER.
At 5 o'clock Monday afternoon The
American received a special dIspatch
from Newton. on the line between
Guatemala and Mexico. The telegram
was delivered to the Newton telegraph
ofice by a special courier, and it brings
information that Barrillas is master of
the situation, he having put down the
reoltr after three days' hard fighting.
The revolt was precipitated by Montu
far, son of one of the candidates for the
presidency, who is a strong partisan of
Barrilas, in attempting to make a polit
ical speech on Independence day. The
mob threw him and his friends from the
platform in the main plaza, pelting
theni with stones until they found Sheli
ter in a neighboring house. From that
time uatil the night of the 18th there
was street fighting. Sometimes the
mob was in control of the city, and at
other times the army.
The arrival of troops from the ad
joining districts eventually restored Bair
rillas to power, and the city is thorough
ly infested with soldiers. Martial law
has been declared. It was expected in
the city of Guatemala that Barrlila
would declare himself dictator so as to
prolong his term of office.
SALVADOR WILL ATTACK.
Salvador is moving troops to the
miitary district of Santa Anna, bor
dering on the southern frontier of Gua
temala, and it is believed for the purpose
of invading the latter country, if the
City of Guatemala revolt spreads to in
terior points. It is said that already in
Quezaienango, one of the most im
portant cities in the upper districts of
Guatemala, revolts have occurred
against Barrillas within the past three
months, but they have proved so far
FIVE HUNDRED KILLED.
A private dispatch to a prominent
merchant in this city, who has business
retions in the City of Guatemala,
shown to a correspondent last night
from Newton,says fully 500 lives were
sacrified ini the three days' fighting in
the revolt in the city of Guatemala and
that shooting is still going on. The diq
patch also conveys the luformation that
B~arrillas has declared himself dictator.
It is stated C2ol. Jobon killed Gen. San
chez, and it followed that the brother of
Gen. Sanchez, learning of his assassina
tion, went to the place, which was sur
rounded by cannon, where Jobon was
stationed and shot and killed him.
THE REIGN OF TERROR.
Sanchez's brother has been executed.
The city is under martial law and a
reign of t-.rror prevails, the inhabitants
being afraid to leave their houses. In
the revolt which has taken place at
Quezaltenango the revolutionary leader
is reported to be supported by ove.r
1.CEO men. The palace and residence of
President Barrillas are guarded by both
infantry and artillery. The president
does not go abroad unless guarded by a
large force of cavalry.
Why the Would Suspended.
CHARLESTON, S. C., Oct. 7.-The sus
pension of the Charleston World, which
was announced to-day, is the topic of
the town. It was pretty generally
known that the World had been in
finanial trouble for some time, but Mr.
F. S. Rodgers, who was the principal
owner of it, is very wealtby and the
general belief is that he was carrying
it. The burst up, it is commonly
rumored, was precipitated by politics
and was hastened by the nomination
of J. F. Ficken as reform candidate for
Mayor. The story goes that Mr. Jervey,
editor of the World, who was on the
committee who waited on Mr. Ficken,
had prepared an editorial endorsing his
nomination. Mr. Rodgers forbade its
publication. The editor resigned. Mr.
Rodgers refused to put up further cash
and the paper went under, Report
says that the World ccst Mr. Rodgers 8,

estimated at from $40,000 to 880,000i

CORPUS CHIIIsTI, Tex., October 2.
This city was thrown into a fever of ex
citement this morning at 8 o'clock by
the finding of the boyof a girl, 11
years old, floating in Crpus Christi
Bay, near here. It proyed to be that of
Rowna Hlamlin. The discovery revealed
the fact that Horace Hamlin, father of,
the girl, had left his residence at 5
this morning for a walk, acoompamied
by his two-year-old boy and two daugh
ters, aged 11 and 13 years respectively.
After the finding of the first body,
thousands of people assembled at .the
wharf while stout heairts and willing
hands dragged the bay with every
facility at their command. One
hour was spent in this way
when the inanimate form of pretty
Helen was brought to the service,
adding horror to the sad occassion.
Further search resulted in the recovery
of the father, whose remains were con
vyed to the house, only to add to the
poor wife's anguish.
