He has come to settle up some old
affairs. I fancy," replied my father.
"That piece of property Edward owned
was sold the other day. I am glad of
that. It will be something for them."
My father's eei took on a far off look
such a look as I had often noticed of
late. Was it regret or the thoughtful
liesa of advancing years Whatever it
may hate lieen, or however my father
may liate regarded transactions of the

"Well." saiil my mother, "I hope they
will not pack back again."
"No. David Freeman is pleased, I am
told, with the country out there. They
will never return here. It seems he made
inquiries alwut that claim of ours," said
my father af ler a pause. "He Is lioiind to
look after the Interests of those children
and it is his right."
"I cannot see how they hate any right;
or if they have," retracted my mother,
"it Is a shame."
'Amy'" said my father sternly.
Mother colored to her temples. "That
claim," she proceeded, "is in the far dis
tance, and it is not worth while liorrow
ing trouble about what may never come."
"1 am not so sure about it Wing at so

"Mother," I said that evening, as we
sat in the twilight waiting for father, who
had gone to a vllliage caucus, "who is

tragedy of a life, I have thought since."
"The woman," replied my mother,
glancing furtively altout her, and in a
toice hushed, as if the very walls had
ears, "isyouraunt by marriage a tartly

"Why are they disreputable, mother"
"Hecanse," replied my mother, in sharp

"Your grandfather, my child, was an
Englishman, with high ideas of caste and
family distinction. He was a merchant
man, owning ships for the transportation
of American products to foreign jiorts.
He was a proud man, looking down
upon the canaille, as they were termed,
as upon an inferior race. Hut in the
course of years reverses came. In the
wars lietweeii France and England (prior
to lt00 his shijis, with those of many
others, were captured by French priva

of these jierplexities he died, leaving six
Mills and one daughter. Your aunt Sarah
was a famous belie in her day, ami jour
undo Edward was strikingly handsome."
"Oh, yes, mother," I replied eagerly.
"A division of your grandfather's
property left comparatively small amounts
to each, and they found themselves, for
the first times in their lites, thrown upoii
their own resources. Your father decided
to come west for the purchase of lands;
the others tried various pursuits, mostly
failing in all. Your uncle I Mward, hav
ing squandered his portion, came west.
He was never strong, and knew nothing
of lalwr in ant form.
"It was a great pity," murmured my
mother; "a great pity "

She was picturesque, just the style to at

could say at the time, but it was of no
use, and your uncle Edward married the
girl. David Freeman, the brother,
brought matters to a crisis by insisting

We saw tery little of your uncle after
that for a tear or more. We would hate

"but he rushed ou to his doom You j

depressed life And now I laqie we shall

to extinguish a coal which had snapped
upon the carK't.
Years went by, my father still clinging
to the lielief that the claim due to the
family would lie futitl. Year after year
during the sessions of congress he sub
scribed for The Washington Intelligencer,
but without results. The bill continued
to lie remanded to its -long standing re-,-eptacle,

were all three good, square, everyday

apparently, not a bit stuck up because
their father was president. Hutherford

good, square, honest fellow, with many
admirable qualities. Fannie and Scott

Dixon and an Irishman were carrying
some rublier on an iron hand barrow to
tlie oven, tlie Irishman was taken with a
flt ot eou"5 "s Iie passeti a liarrel of
sulphur, and involuntarily spat out his
rubber cud. It fell into the barrel.
Setting down the barrow, he made a grab
for it and recovered it. The sulphur,
however, adhered to Us moist surface, and
he threw it down with an expression of
disgust. It fell uhiu the barrow and was
put into the oven with it. When the lmr
row was taken from the oven Dixon saw
that the little piece of rubber hail assumed
a new appearance. He examined it care

held iu his hand the key to the discovery
Mr Goodyear had been searching for He
took the little thing to Mr Goodyear,
who, when he saw it, liecame much ex
cited. Dixon told him the ciri'iimstantes
under which the change had lieen effected,
and Mr Goudtear set his sou and Dixon
to work experimenting. It was seteral
mouths Wfore they succeeded, but they
dually learned the secret of making vul
