A YOUNG GIRL'S FORTUNE.
AN INTERESTING SKETCH.
Nothing appeals so strongly to a mother's
affection as her daughter Just budding into
womanhood. Following Is an instance: "Our
daughter, Blanche, now lb years of ago, hud
been terribly afflicted with nervousness, and
had lost the cntiro use of her right arm. sin:
was in such a condition that wo had to keep
her from school and abandon her ?uimlc les?
sons. Oln fact, wo feared St. Vitus dance, and
are positive but for an Invaluable remedy she
would bave had that torriblo affliction. Wo
had employed physicians, but she received no
bouetlt from them. The first of last August sho
weighed but 75 pounds, and although she has
token only three bottles of Nervino sho now
weighs 106 pounds: her nervousness and symp?
toms of St. Vitus danco are entirely gone, sho
attends school regularly, and studies with com?
fort and case. Sho has recovered complete use
of her arm, her appctlto is splendid, and no
money could procure for our daughter tho health
Dr. Miles' Nervine has brought her.
Vnon my brother recommended tho remedy
1 had no faith in patent medicines, and would
not. listen to him, but as a last resort he sent us
a bottle, wo began giving It to Blanche, and tho
effect was almost immediate."?Mrs. It. It.

THE WIT Ol? MAN.
1 met her nt a garden party, not a joyous"
gathering of tennis players and girls
laughing to tho sun, but tho gloomy affair
of tho morbidly select. In bright red she
blossomed with all tho sweets of a woman
magically feminine. Her crisp, black hair
seemed ready to lly out against conven?
tionalities, against hats particularly, and
her brown ryes wcro golden with the joy of
lifo. Wit had chiseled hor features, soexcul
lontly irregular In tho roundness of their
curves, to pointed noso and chin. I could
not but enjoy, as n relief from all tho olab
orato angles of her stiff surroundings, tho
rapid undulations of her lttho figure, hor
expressive arms, dancing littlo feet, ns sho
sat there, a wild gypsy, fashionable and
polished, but still untamed by socloty.
Pouting like some playful child over les?
sons, her mouth rigidly set against tho
flickering dimples of irrepressible laugh
tor, she listened to the pompous old Duo
do Uetz or answered bis wlso sentences at
random, with a wave of hor hand.
"Who is she'/" I Inquired of M. Pimo
dan do St. Ouen, n walking edition of Do
Tout Paris, tightly bound in frock coat.
''Why, that is la bcllo Comtcsso do
Crcquy do Canaplcs. A widow, mon eher,
And ho retired, ns Mine, do Canaplcs
smiled up at mo with her humorous eyes.
Her voice was fluently musical as sho gay
ly Raid, ''Wuaro not quite strangers, for I
have met your charming sister at the Plot
Chadieus." Before I could frame a com?
pliment sho suddenly udded, "Do you
"Your sister, of courso. I likoovcry man
to love his sister."
"Well, I hope I do."
"You only hopol Aro you un English?
"Moro or less."
"Less, decidedly less. An English?
man with blue eyes llko yours should not
only be honest and brave, but suro, sure
When I called next dny, Mino, do Can?
aplcs was in her boudoir. Sho listened to
my rending, silently, attentively, almost,
it. seemed, reverently, and when lieft tho
bouse after dinner I felt very groat. The
next morning WO met in tho Hois and rodo
together. The sanio night wo danced a
cotillon at Mine.do Plot-Chundlou's. Fate
seemed determined to make us meet, and
perhaps we helped her.
If a man and woman see much of each
other, they invariably talk of themselves,
wax sentimental by waltz music and im?
agine themselves in love after supper. But
I am tired of flirtations, sick of tolling a
woman, whom I only admire, that I lovo
her. So one evening, as wo discussed sen?
timent over pate do folo gras, I told her
bow much I regretted that two great
minds should slavishly follow tho exam?
ple of the stupid. She agreed. "If wo
remain on our proscnt footing, olio of us
may fall in lovo." She opened her inno?
cent eyes, smiling. "Yes, " I continued,
"in love. What else can happen? Where?
as if wo go off somewhere together and
llvo naturally, unconstrained by tho
world, we shall know ourselves truly und
enjoy a few days of rest."
"Oh, the wit of man!" sho cried, gayly
clapping her hands, her wholo faco beam?
ing with delight.
The next evening wo started by rail for
Fontalneblciiu. Soon wo wero both fast
asleep, only to wako at our destination.
Sho took a room at one hotel, I at another.
Tho noxt day wo drovo In tho forest, si?
lently watching tho royal trees till our
eyes grew tired and we foil asleep. We
staid thero ft fortnight, driving, sleeping,
barely saying a word and yet (piito happy.
When WO were back In Paris, sho asked,
"And why did we go to Fontainebloau for
"Because," I replied, "at Fontaine?
bloau we kept regular hours, allowed our?
selves no cerebral excitement, drank no
ohnmpngno, heard no one whisper, 'Little
Cnstlchigh I? awfully in love with Mmo.
de Canaplcs,' or 'The countess is decided?
ly sweet on ce eher garcon.' I havo sim?
ply proved, dear lady, that socloty was
forcing us, with its Champagne and talk,
to think of each Other, whereas naturo left
us to follow our own Individual and sep
urato thoughts. Oh, bout fortnight In
Fontnincblunu! We scarcely spoke twice
a day. Silence is repose, and repose Is
bliss. To think that we might havo been
vulgar lovers! A fow moro days of Paris,
and my fate at least was sealed. But I
understood tho dangers of our situation.
Could anything bo more paradoxical and
modern than our elopement to Foutaluo
blcau? Carry off a woman mysteriously at
night, two hours by rail, to a strange
town, remain there a fortnight en tete-a
tcto! Ami all that not to become lovers;
but, on the contrary, to escape the neces?
sary, tho historical development of a situ?
ation without issue. Don't you think our
late adventure gives us tncontestlblc su?
periority over the greatest wits of our ago?"
She seized both my hands and fixed my
eyes. It was a rapid, searching, wondrous
look. Only her irregular and mobile faco
oould have such expression, and for half a
second sho seemed to tear opun my soul,
take a peep, see it all and shut it up.
Thon sho sat down on tho sofa nnd gazed
meditatively at me. Humor and disap?
pointment were blended in her dimpled
smile. She crossed hor arms, nodded her
hend, examined her little feet slowly one
after the other and sighed, "Tho wit of
man!" She shruggud hor shoulders most
charmingly os she reiterated, each timo
with a quite new and singular Intonation,
' The wit of man, the wit of man."
Most people would have been put out by
the obvious double meaning of this re
murk, but I am a psychologist?in fact. I
pride myself not a littlo on my penetra?
tion I understood thnt she smiled at my
wit, compared me to others and sighed as
she regretfully reflected how few men are
really capable of such subtle conduct with
Women They are fow indeed.
Then sho buried her face in her hands
to think, and, with equal unexpected?
ness, caino softly to me and kissed my
"Thank you," sho sold in a strangely
fnroff voice. "Though but a youth, you
are a groat philosopher. Henceforth we
are friomls We will never allow society
to make us pose one to the other, but
meet sometimes and rest together."
She tripped away out of the room. But
the door suddenly reopened, and she leai.ed
forward, oftorlug hor exqulsito figure to ray
view like a bouquet as sho spilled with
ber sweet rod Hps. "Tho wit of man; ha,
ha!" Rhu laughed us she ran down stairs.
Nearly ovory day Mine, do Canaplea
comes to sit in my study. Her work bas?
ket and hooka are in * corner; even when
absent tho atmosphere of hor pervades tho
room like a spirit and soothes me. We are
usually quito silent, but whon I do speak
6he listens ns she did whon I llrst rend my
poems to her, and the flickering gold In
her brown eyes seems to light my memory
and color my expression. The othor dny
sho said, "I know exactly the position
which I occupy between your books and
clgnrottcs." Her tone was somewhat bit?
ter. But I proved to her that sho Is my
most precious friend, for she never bores
me, following nil my moods and Indulging
them In n manner most surprising when
I think of it. Really I am so thankful
that for once I resisted tho temptation of
flirting. Lovo would have spoiled our
friendship, as it does ovcrything. Even
Alma do Canaples torments her lover,
for sho is going to marry Jacques do Chan ?
dien, at least she tells mc so. But on this
subject sho lavishes nil the cnprlco and
childishness which friendship seems to
have drowned in her with 1110. Sometimes
sho speaks passionately of lo benu Jacques,
who is (whistling officer of chasseurs, some?
what brainless, very handsome and qultO
spoiled by Mino, de Plot-Chandleu. At
other times Mine, do Cnnaplos says that sho
hntcs him. und her sudden reversions of
feeling uro really beginning to torment him
into a man of thought. Ho obeys her like
n faithful dog; she snubs him as a woman
does a man who loves her, whereas with
me sho Is unfailing In her gentle consid?
eration, ceaseless in her dulicate atten?
tions. And the moral of all this Is, If you
love a woman, don't make lovo to her; If
you lovo her, don't marry her. I told hor
so the other day. Sho blushed and laughed
until the tears rolled down her cheeks,
Baying as usual, "Tho wit of man!" ns
sho wiped her eyes and composed herself
back to tho letter which I was dictating
to my London tailor.
But I do wish sho would marry Jacques
and be done with it. Her capricious treat?
ment of him and appeals to my sympathy
are rather teasing. She always wants to
know what I think. Now, that is just
what 1 don't do when sho is by mo. I
then simply tnkereposo in her society from
all mental exertion. It has becomo a habit,
and these constant demands on my reason?
ing faculties, though flattering, boro me.
Can no woman ever leave well enough
When sho came In this afternoon, I saw
by the way she hovered about my chair
before sitting down that something was
on her mind. Shu wore a red dress very
like that which she had on tho day I first
met her at Muio. do Kotz's garden party.
Sho struck me as prettier than ever, and
her charming figure was a joy to my eyes
us she lay on tho sofa or leaned over to
road my last poom. There is about her
something suavely womanly which acts
like a charm on man. She has that fra?
grance of body and soul which makes mo
feel as though life is really worth living
when sho is at my side.
"I am decided to marry Jacques," sho
said as she poured mo out a cup of tea.
"At last! Allow mo to congratulate
you," I remarked, with ? vast assumption
"No. I am very miserable," sho sighed
as she passed mo tho cup.
"Because I don't love him enough."
?'Why marry him then!'"
"Because?because I am lonely, Regi?
nald," and her expression was piteous as
sho repeated, "Oh, so lonelyl"
"Did yon lovo M. do Cauaplcsf"
?'No, I was too young."
"Have you ever loved uny oner" I in?
quired airily after a pause.
Sho jumped to her feet Uko a startled
deer and confronted mo with burning eyes.
"Yes," she said fiercely. "Yes."
"Was he married?"
Sho shook her head.
"Why don't you take him thenf"
Sho slowly answered, with downcast
eyes, "He doesn't love mo."
"Are you sure?"
Sho looked up at me. "Yes," sho said,
"I am quite sure."
"Well, then, try to make him."
"I have," she retorted sharply.
"Without success? You astonish mr*.
I was only just thinking how fascinating
you are." She blushed. "There is some?
thing about you which particularly ap?
peals to man. Wo are all such vain crea?
tures that any woman, particularly you,
with a few smiles might reduce the most
indifferent of us to a desperate condition. "
Sho shrugged her shoulders. "Have you
tried everything with him?"
Sho turned on me curiously. "Now,
really, what do you suppose I havo been
doing? Does a woman ever give up any?
thing but a losing game?" Sho laughed
a little sardonically and repeated wearily
ns she let herself fall back on the sofa,
"Yes, I Havo tried everything, Reginald,
?'You havo even told him you lovo him?"
"But," she answered, turning round on
! me, "I havo insinuated it. And if lie
won't see it it's because ho can't lovo me
and doesn't wish to trifle with my affec?
tions by raising false hopes."
?'A rare gentleman if such is tho case."
"You approvu of him then?"
'Don't we agree in everything?"
'Yes," she answered sadly. And then
she began to cry, like a child, violent, hot
tears of rage and grief. My whole soul
swelled to sympathy. I took her hands
and softly kissed them. Perhaps I am a
little in love with her, at lenst I thought so
at the time, but then I know women's sen?
sitiveness too woll to allow my love to
burst on their unhnpplness. Perhaps my
kisses wen? a trifle passionate, for sho turn
od pale and pushed me away, her eyes bril?
liant and gigantic ns she looked at me as?
"Don't, pleaso don't, Reginald," sho
?'I heg your pardon." Sho smiled, and I
continued eloquently: "1 wish that man
was not such a fool. If he only knew
what a fine creature you arc; If he only
understood you as I do! Tell me bis
name! I will become his most intimate
friend for your sake, and you know be?
tween men we have so many means of
conveying an impression, exciting a cu?
riosity about some woman. I am sure
that I could make him fall In love with
you, my dear, without his guessing that
I even knew you, except as a casual ac?
With hut!; hands upraised to the ceiling
she laughed outright as she Hung herself
out of the room, exclaiming in a voice
that I shall remember to my dying day,
"Tho stupidity of man!"
I am afraid that her verdict on my sex
is just, though I may Hatter myself that
there are a few exceptions. ? Macmillau's

Now York Stock Market.
New York, Aug. 24.?Speculation at

is proven by the dealings in railway
mortgages, which to-day aggregated a
par value of 92,500,000, the largest
