ly business oharootor only with the
operator at "D" when thoro canto a
ohangc. Death silently removod tho old
man who hud boon in charge there for
so long, and n new operator was in?
A mossugo spun along the lino one
February morning in this wiso< "Good
morning, B. " I reepondoeV
"Good morning, D." Thou oamo thei
information, "Tho old man died last
night, und I havo tukou his place."
"What is your name?" I asked.
"Nellie Morton. What is yours?" A
spirit of doviltry prompted my reply:
"Thank you,"was the concise re?
sponse. Then a message in real earnest
Oamo along the linos, and wo were
obliged to attend to business. Everyday J
I bade my unseen acquaintance "Good J
morning" and never closed up at night J
without n farewell message, A twinge
of oonscieuco rockod mo at times, und n
"still, small voice" whispered its warn- j
ing, but the temptation was too great,
and it was not long beforo I was send?
ing sly messages, containing a good deal
"atwoou tlio linos," to the unseen Nel?
lie. Tho replies to these messages were
guarded, but hopeful, und I grow bold?
er. It was no ond of fun.
Sho told mo her history. Sho had ruu
away from homo because her parents
insisted upon marrying her to a man
sho detested (und the lust word came
clicking vioiously from my end of the
lino). Sho would never marry him?
never. I advised her not to und hinted
at on affection deeper and truer thou
any tho presuming "detested follow"
Woll, tho outcome of it waa that 1
asked tho nnsocn Nellio to bo my wife
und oveu described tho littlo homo that
was lonosomoly awaiting hor coming. I
was floundering in deep water mid could
but trust to a kind Providence to pull
mo out My "fun" was becoming doad
earnest How I wished the wires stretch?
ing between us wore telephonic, instead
of telegraphic, that I could perchance
hour some exclamation or gain some
token of how my message was received.
But this was not to l>e, and I had to
possess my soul in patience. That vir?
tue was almost exhausted whon the
woll known cull fell upon my oars. I
flow to tho instrument It was concise
and not very complimentary, "Rather
than marry that brute I will risk it"
I was in for it now and must perforce
flounder still deeper by Bonding raptur?
ous messages ovor the wires. I, Delia
Brown, wus engaged to be married to a
young lady I had never seen. This was
forcing tho question of woman's rights.
I carried tho "fun" on for over three
months, und every day it grew deoidsd
ly loss "funny," until I begun to brood
over tho predicament into whiob I had
giddily led my f<<et Tlio timo way rup
idly approaching when I would havo to
claim the bride I hud won in this novel
and rotnantio manner, and my blood
run oold at tho thought of liow easy it
would bo far her to lourn of my perfidy,
and from ull I had seen of he* temper 1
felt sure sho would not deal lightly with
any ono who would dare to play tricks
At lust I ooukl hour it no taugox, and
one day, Just tliroo ?weeks before I was
to travel to "D" und claim my bride, I
boarded the train with altogether un
othor motive. It was to "kiss and make
up" after I had begged hor with tears
to forgive me, etc
I found a little hou?\ with a little
sign in blue and white swinging in tho
breoBO, similar to tho littlo house and
tho Mttlo sign at "B " It was oooupicd
at the time by a young man muling a
paper. I looked at him without speak?
ing, and ho returned tho compliment in
"I wish to see Mies Nellie Morton,"
I said, and as h* did not spook I wont
op to explain. "lam the operator at
*B' ana nave an important message,
which must 1)0 delivered to her at once.
A moment's delay moons"? I paused
for a word, and ho spoko for tho first
"So you iure the operator at 'B' and
desire to see Miss Morton! I am sorry
to disappoint you; but yon boo, Miss
Mertou is at homo ut tlio present tluu
whilo I toko her plaoti Tho fact i
sho is going to bo married and is
preparing for the great event Sli
cannot bo soon personally, but if yon
will intrust the message to mo I will
delrWr it immediately if yon will bo
kind enough to take my place while I
run around to her house.''
His coolness nearly distracted me.
"I must see her!" I oxolainiod excit?
"But you cannot," ho said coolly.
"I have strict orders not to lot any one
know hor -whereabouts for a day or two
until thoso oxtonsivo preparations are
woll under way."
I was on the verge of tears, and with
a choko in my voice I cried out, sinking
Into a chair and holding up my hands
"Don't say another word. You wiU
set nio wUd. H you will not toll mo
where to And Nellie," I wont on in des?
peration, "will you please tell hor this
?I have been a bad, wicked girl, and?
and?and?there is no such person as
Ned Chvyborn? It started in fun, and?
and?and?pleaso lot mo go to her. She
will understand mo so much better than
you can explain it."
"No such person as Ned Clay born!
My doar yonng lady, I must bog leave
to differ with you. That is tho name of
tlio young man who in three short weeks
is to marry Miss Morton. Surely ho is
not dead?" he nddod in consternation.
"Oh, will y-ou not understand? It
was all a joke at first. I thought it
would bo great fun, and bo I?woll, 1
Bfa Nod Clay born, and after a time we
bocamo engaged?all in fun, too. " Here
I laughed hysterically. "I tried to stop,
but I was so wicked I could not, and
now poor Nollio will broak hex heart,
and?and?and"? And I broko down
and began to cry in a misorablo way.
Unliko most men, my companion was
not in tho least disooncortcd at sight of
my tears, but simply laughed, loud and
Presently tho laughter ceased. Then
I hoard uneasy movements in tho chaii
occupied by my companion. Then bo got
np and paced about restlessly. Pretty
soon n light touch fell upon my arm,
and his voice, very gentle and kind,
said, "Ncllio is hero to roceivo youi
OOnfossion and forgiveness." I dried my
oyes and looked up, but saw no one but
tho tall young man, who was looking
at mo very earnestly.
"Where is she?" I asked, ready to
"Here," ho said, holding out hie
hand. Instinctively I put mine into it,
and it closed over it firmly.
"I also have a confession to make,"
ho said earnestly. "I thought you were
another young follow like myself, and
wishing to relievo the tedium of those
long monotonous days struck up a flir?
tation. I intended someday to meet the
young man and have it out with him,
when you came with your strange con
fession. In short," ho ended abruptly,
"I am Ncllio Morton. And you uro Nod
Clay born? Conic, dry your eyes, Ned.
Your Nellie is not heartbroken at th<
turn about of affairs."
After staring at him in silent iiinaxo
meut for tho space of livo seconds the
truth of the whole matter l>egnu t-c
dawn upon my confused brain. My face
grow hot with indignation. 1 snntch?<d
my hand from his and sprang to my
"You nro a contemptible follow!" J
cried. He did not reply, but stood look?
ing down at mo from his superior height.
"It was a hundred times mcnuor in

"Isn't that rather paradoxical, con?
sidering tho fact that you thought I was
a womiui und you wero enacting the
role of tho sterner sex?" he asked.
"You might havo known," I an?
"But I did not, " lio replied.
"Here is my train, " I said shortly.
"Goodby," ho replied, assisting me
on to the train despite my independence
and lifting his hat as it pulled out.
I traveled back to "B" a sadder but
"You are a fool," said I to my rofleo
tion in tho littlo mirror as I removed
A year rolled by. I had entirely re
covered from my chagrin, and buried
in tho darkest chamber of my memory
was every thought of tho tall young
operator at "D station."
Ono morning I was arranging and
copying some night messages when n
long shadow fell across my papers. A
glance upward told who it was. Tin
door of that secret and darkened cham?
ber of my memory flew open, and 1
knew that tho tall young man at "D

A writer in Machinery points out the
foot; as ascertained by examination, that
but very few steonx gauges are correct
throughout the whole range of tho scale
and remarks that in testing a gauge it
is desirable to mako the pressure at
whioh steam is usually carried the most
important point to bo determined, A
gauge may bo correct at low pressure
and not so at higher pressures, and the
reverse may also bo found, especially
with gauges that havo been in use huh.'
time. By many it is not considered ud
visablo to nse a gauge for recording pros
erures as high as tlmt shown on the dial,
as few springs will stand such an ex?
tension without becoming permanently
set, to a certain extent, this In-ing es
pooially the ease with the cheap* r
ganges. It is, according to this writer,
not a difficult matter to devise means
for comparing with a test gauge any
kind of force pump serving the purpose,
or tho boiUr feed pump may bo util?
ised Again, gauges can bo tested by fit
ting them to a piece of load pipe, a
gauge at either end, the pip- being bent

FINANCE AND COMMERCE.'
Mew York Stock Merket.
New York, Aug. 23.?The early trad?
ing at the steck exohange was character?
ized by fovonshness and the course of
prices was very irregular. A drive was
made at tho start against the Orangen
and Sugar and the bears woro more in
evidence than for days past. They so -
compliehed little, however, andafsor the
expiration of the first hour of business
they wero compelled to act on the de?
fensive. Their sales in tho early trad?
ing brought about a decline of H<SH
percent. Missouri Pacific leading the
downward movement, but thedoullning
tendency wob soon checked and noar11
o'clock speculation became steadier.
In tho afternoon the Impression
gained ground that the President would
sign tho Uorman bill, and operators
showed a disposition to branch out once
more. Distillers led at this time, ono of
tho firm taking fi.ooo shares up to 21.
Ah the concern has been identified with
the negotiations looking to the placing
of tho S5,000,000 loan said to be needed
by the company to got its product out of
bond the transaction attracted atten?
tion. So far as the loan is concerned
tho street is as much mixed as ever.
Operators can bo found who declaro that
it has beon placed, whilo others are
equally certain that the company has
not and can)not got the money hero. In
the meantime ponding a statement from
oftlcials tho manipulator* of the stock
are milking iho street at a great rate.
Sugar was forced down half a point to
112% at tho opening but soon recovered
and on good buying advanced to 114%.
In the last hour It suddenly sold off to
113% and later returned and closed at
113%. Railway issues conspicuous in
the afternoon rise were the Grangers,
Louisville and Nashville, Lake Shore,
Missouri Pacific, Northern Pacific, pre
ferred, New England, Wheeling and
Lake Erie, preferred. The Improve?
ment in tbeso rangod from % to 2
points American cotton oil figured
more prominontly in tho dealings, the
common moving up to 2 '4 to 34, and the
preferred 1% to 77. Rubber preferred
jumped 4 to 95
Tho afternoon rise was materially as?
sisted by the efforts of tho bears to
cover shorts put out oarly in the day.
Tho market closed firm, the sudden re?
action of 1% por cont. in sugar, having
had no influence. Tho recant sharp
rise in silver was considered a bull ar?
gument in somo quarter, Business was
