New York Tribune,
A True Story of a Dog.
Harper' Youog People.
In the year 187-, the steamship
Swallow left the Cape of Good Hope,
bound for England "for home," the
passengers, all English, called it.
Among them was? a lady with a child
of two years and a nurse. The lady
had also brought with her a huge,
handsome Newfoundland dog.
The voyage had lasted about six
days. No land was visible, and the
island of St. Helena would be the
nearest point. The day was a beau
tiful one, with a soft breeze blowing,
and the sun shining down brightly
on the sparkling waters. A large
and gay company of the passengers
was assembled on deck ; merry
groups of young men and girls had
clustered together; now and then a
laugh rang out, or some one sang a
gay little snatch of song, when sud
denly the mirth of all was silenced
by the loud and piercing scream of a
woman. A nurse who had been
holding a child in her arms at the
side of the vessel had lost her hold
of the leaping, restless little one, and
it had fallen overboard into the sea
into the great, wide Atlantic Ocean
The poor woman, in her despair
would have flung herself after her
charge had not strong arms held her
back. But sooner than it can be
written down, something rushed
swiftly past her; there was a leap
over the vessel's side, a splash into
the waters, and then Nero's black
head appeared above the waves
holding the child in his mouth.
The engines were stopped as soon
as possible, but by that time the dog
was far behind m the wake ot the
vessel. A boat was quickly lowered
and the ship's surgeon takipg his
place in it, ordered the sailors to pul
for their lives. ' One could just make
out on the leaping,daucing waves the
dog's black head, holding something
scarlet in his mouth. The child had
on a little jacket of scarlet cloth, ami
it gleamed like a spark of fire on the
dark blue waves.
The mother of the child stands on
the deck, her eyes straining anxious
ly after the boat, and the black spot
upon the waves still holding firmly
to the tiny scarlet point. How long
the timo seems ! The boat seems
fairly to creep, though it speeds over
the waves as it never sped before
Sometimes a billow higher than its
fellows hides for a moment dog and
child from the anxious, straining
eyes. One can almost hear the
watchers' hearts then throb with fear
lest the waters may have swallowed
them up. Liut tho boat comes nearer
and nearer, near enough at last to a
low of the surgeon's reaching ove
and lifting the child out of the dog'i
mouth, then a sailor's strong arm
pull's Nero into the boat, and the
mon row swiftly back to the ship,
"Alive?" is shouted trom every
lip as the boat comes within hail of
the steamer; and as the answer comes
back, "Alive!" a "Thank God!
breaks from every heart. Then the
boat comes up to the ship's side.
hundred hands ure stretched out to
help the brave dog on board, and
"Good Nero," "Brave dog." "Good
fellow," resounds on every side
But Nero ignores tho praise shower
ed so profusely on him; he trots se
dately up to the child's mother, and
with a wag of his dripping tail, looks
up into her face with his big, Jaith
ful brown eyes. It v as if he said,
"I tis nil right ; I have brought her
back quite safe." Tlin mother drops
on her kness on the dink, and tak
ing his shaggy head in both bands,
isses his wet face again and again,
the tears pouring down her face in
streams. There Is, indeed, not a dry
eye on board. One old sailor stands
near with tho tears runninff down
lis weather-beaten hrown face, all
the while unconscious that he is
Well, as one can imagine, Nero
was for tho rest of the voyage the pet
nd the hero of the whole ship. He

dignity. It was curious, however,
to see how from that time on he
made himself the sentinel and body
guard of the child he had saved. lie
lways placed himself at the side of
the chair of any person in whose
arms she was, his eyes watching
every movement she made. Some
times she would be laid on the deck,
with Nero to watch her, and if in
clined to creep out of bounds, Nero's
teeth, fastened firmly in the skirt of
her frock, promptly drew her back.
t was as though he thought, "I have
been lucky enough, Miss Baby, to
save you once irom a watery grave,
but as I may not be so lucky again,
shall take care you don't run any
unnecessary risks in the future."
When the steamer readied her des
tination, Nero received a regular
ovation as he was leaving the vessel
Some one cried, "Three cheers for
Nero !" and they were given with a
will. And "Good-by, Nero," "Good
by, good dog," resounded from every
side. Every one crowded around to
trive him a pat on the head as he
trotted clown the gang-plank. To all
these demonstrations he could, of
course, only reply with a wag of his
plumy tail and a twinkle of his faith
ful brown eyes. He kept close to the
nurse's side and watched anxiously
his little charge's arrival on dry
He was taken to the home of his
little mistress, where he lived, loved
and honored, until he died of old age,
with his shaggy gray head resting on
tho knee of the child (a woman now
that he had saved. His grave is in an
English church yard, in consecrated
ground. He lies in the burial plot of
the family to which he belonged.
His crave is marked by a fair white
stone, on which is engraved, "Sacret

His portrait hangs over the chim
ney-piece ot an JMigiisn drawing-

Ocean after her, and held her up un

How Central American Presidents Gel
.. ,.. Rich.
No one who haa not lived in Central
America has any idea of the fortunes
winch the presidents of those petty re
publics amass in a few years, " says a
Guatemalan merchant. "You see, these
fallows are ns complote dictators as
Napoleon was in his best days. They
handle the public purse, and can lay out
what they want, and cover into their
own exchequer a very largo amount,
which is put down on the books for
public improvements and secret service
work. There is no question that Barrios,
who hadn't a dollar when he secured the
control of Guatemala, was worth when
ho was killed at least ten millions. About
half of this amount was invested in New
York property and in American Govern
ment bonds, bo the widow was all right.
His-Guatemalan property, however, was
seized by Barillas, his successor, under
ono pretext or another. Barrios was arj
open handed dictator, who never minced
words or concealed the fact that he
would promptly remove any, one who
aspired to oppose him. Barillas is equally
cruel, but he always masks his work
under due forms of law. He has stripped
the country of large sums, and it is said
he has several millions to his credit in
the Bank of England, so that should he
be suddenly unseated by a popular revo
lution, he would have a competence for
the remainder of his days. Barillas has
also just played the shrewd game of
mortgaging his valuable coffee plantation
to a rich German syndicate for over two
millions. With this mortgage on tho
property, should he be driven into exile,
his estates can not be confiscated, as the
German minister would at once demand
protection for the interests of the mort
gagees. Barillas has also sold tho coffee
crop on his estates for three years, realiz
ing the snug sum of $1,600,000 for it.
Taking these two things together, it looks
veiy much as though he fears defeat in
tho struggle with Salvador next summer,
and that he is raising all the money he
can to be prepared for flight. The legend
of Damocles's sword is literally true of
Central American presidents. "
Ante-Nnptlal Clubt of Great Citlet.
"The club house in Gotham is an ante

he spoke the truth. " There are, " he con

who know no other homo than their
clubs. If the matrons have a right to
protest against their lords being too de
voted to club life because they spend a

not the maids a cause of action against
an institution that practically withdraws

I had with Colonel Jay L. Torrey, of St.
Louis, on the same subject a year or two
ago. Colonel Torrey, who lives at tlu
Mercantile Club, declared that the serv
ice was far superior to that of the best
hotels, and that ouo who had tried it
never would go back to the old style of
living. "The servants," said he, "study
to please you, and they gratify your
whims, whilo your clothes arc as neatly
kf.pt as if you were a family man per
haps more neatly in some cases." Tin
colonel did not tell me, however, by what
1 1 ( icess of reasoning he arrived at the con
i lusion that it was beneficial to a big,
strapping he man to have his petty whims
coddled, and he admitted that there
would probably be more marriages in the
