OFFICIAL PAPER OF ALEXANDER COCNTV,
THE CUB BOOK-CINDER.
Flathers, vou know, was tlic silent part
ner. Miss" La Blanc was sitting in the
store, just outside the private office, and as
the foreman passed within, she gave him
a saucy stare, to which lie responded by
politely raising his hat.
Veet walked up to old Marblesides. with
that conquering smile ot his, and said,
"I have come down to listen to the con
cluding portion of your remarks, which
my self-respect compelled me to interrupt,
when others were by who should not hear
"Well, I suppose you heard enough to
understand that I wish to have that young

"I informed you that she would be of no
ue th'-rc," said Ilelvetms, (eooly.
-Well, she's of vise to me; that's enough
for you to know."
'Then, sir, you will have take charge
of her aud the bindery, on your own ac
oonnt, asshe and I wU not work there
'Do you pretend to dictate to mo, as to
"Not at all, Mr. Marbleiddcs. I merely
wish to inform you that"
"Come, come, now, llelvetitis, wc have
had enough of this I I see where this is to
lead to. If Mr. M vtblesides is to manage
all the details of this business, he must own
it all. Flathers anil I came to an under
standing some weeks ago. There he comes
now. If you will just step out into the
More, we can settle this, I think."
So Veet stepped out, and Flathor stop
ped in. After about (it'teen minutes, Stamp
stuck his head out at the door and said
ili-lvetius, call around in about an hour, !
1 wish to see you." j
The young man took the hint, and stroll-
cd out to waik about for awhi'.e, and return- '
ing before the appointed time, came up j
into the job-room and told me all about it. j
While we were talking, I was summoned
to the tube. j
Is Helvetius tip ther John?"
"Tell him to come down, will you?" i
"Veet, mv boy, go where glory 'waits j
you'.'' said I. "They have curried old Mar- j
l.lesides down, aud he's only waiting now
to apologize." i
'If he does, said eet, I H shake namis
with him, and thin walk out of the house
and seek another situation. I don't wish to
lo in the employ of a man who feels that 1
have humbled him."
But he went down nevertheless and was
greeted by Stamp with: "Well, my boy,
vou were ri"ht! You have tuways mum-
von were ri!iu . iuuiiui ui.i omui- i
ninoit tbn ntileienrv nnd restiectal il 1 i v of
your department to my entire satisfaction."
"And mine too," said the silent partner. .
"And we both wish you to continue us !

the entire management of the upper lloor to
' "But Mr. Marblosides "
"Is no longer a member of this firm,"
exclaimed the others m the same breath.
"You dou't mean to say"
We have bought him
out, bag und baggage," answered old
Stamp, separating Ins words by two cm
dash", to give them emphtisis.
"And now," suggested Flathers, "Mr.
Stamp, tell him what you promised to "
"All right, Flathers, I'll tell him all in
pood time. There's nothing about our
business that I'd be afraid to tell Helvetius.
I know him, and he knows me. I've raised
him, as you might say me and old Judge
Gore." And Stamp rubbed his hands ami
dbowed the silent one as though he were
afra'nl the change in the firm might em-
tKjIden that reticent individual to come j
forward aud claim a share in this boy of
"Well, now, this is just what I promised
to say All, first call John down."
So I wns summoned to the presence and
duly notified ot the retirement of Marble
nidos. Then said Stamp, iu the most con
"Now, boys, you each have charge of de
partment of our business, and we think it
right to inform you that in going out of
this concern, Marlilesides took with him
eight thousand dollars iu cash. Now that's
not one-thid of what she's worth; but that
was a good round sum for his interest.
Don't think wc tell you this because its go

"We'll have our thanksgiving dinner, all
the same!" put in Flathers.
"Of course," said Stamp, "they under
stand that perfectly well. These boys are
not going to take up the notion that we've
grown stingy iu our old daj-9. No, no!

"By zounds, that's my ticket !" respond
ed the reticent member of the linn.
"We've always done it, ami it's the only
time I get to see 'cm all together."
Veet now spoke up.
"Do I understand you to say, gentlemen,
that you wish to take in another partner
"With capitill Certainly," answered
Stamp. "But we're not going to advertise
for one. He must be just to our mind."
You will notice that Stamp spoke of the
mind of the firm ouly in the singular num
ber. "Some one who ran feel an interest in

"Not unless he was a practical man,"'
said Stamp. "We havr no place to put a
man of that sort. Marblosides was ot no
practical use from the time you took the
management of the bindery. All we miss
in him is the capital ho withdraws,"
"Well, out suppose l snouiii put in mat
amount '."' said the young man, in his
plump, direct way. j
"You? W!iv. vou dou't mean to tell me i
that you've trot thirty-rive hundred dollars
in rash, laid by?" I
Yes. sir. 1 nave.
Whv. Helvetius! Thirtv-five hundred
dollars"! Think of that, Flathers!"
"Bv zounds, it beats all! exclaimed j
Flathers. "Think of that, Jack! You'll
be telling us next that you've got a little
fortune stowed away somewhere !"
To disabuse the minds of the members of
the firm of this error I fished up all my
cash assets out of my pockets, and ni led
them upon the desk. They footed up ex
actly nineteen dollars and fifty-rive cents.
Then the old fellows laughed at me. and
poked each other under the ribs, and laugh
ed again. Then they paused and stared at
each other, exclaiming by turns,
"Thirty-five hundred dollars!"'
"Think of it Flathers!"
"Think of it Stamp!"
-Well, gentlemen, what do yon say to
itC Would that sum be worth your
"Most assuredly," replied Stamp.
"Certainly! By all means!" exclaimed
Flathers. "Just count yourself iu, my boy,
from this day forth, to the extent of thirty
live hundred dollars! Stamp, have the
papers drawn up!"
"Not so fast, Flathers! You seem to
forget. We shall have to consult his
guardian, and he'll have to get an order of
court, if I'm not mistaken."'
"No; nothing of the kind will be needed
I was twenty-one, yesterday," said Veet,
"and might have had a settlement and the
cash deposited in my own name, if I had
called upon Judge Gore."
"Adsum!" responded that gray haired
limb of the law, from the door.
"Speak of the devil, aud he's sure to
appear! And what good excuse have you
to offer for not coming up to the captf.in's j
ollice to settle? Were you not aware that
I have business enough of my own to!
attend to. without looking after youis!" J
"I have been busy, judge. You may
rest assured 1 l"idn't forgotten vou." said
Yce in a sheepish, hesitating sort of a

As the old judge conciuueu tuesc re
marks, he stood with his finger pointed at
the one addressed, as though he were tor
turing a stubborn witness.
"Well, judge," replied Veet, with just a
little htiskiness in his voice, "to be as frank
as vou wish me, the relations between you
and me have been so pleasant you have
been so much more than a guardian a

to dissolve the connection.

"That's just it!" put in Stamp. "We
were just talking ot business. Mr, Marble

young man has proposed to enter as a new
partner. To this wo tire agreed "
"Unanimously, Stamp! Unanimously!"
intoroosed Flathers. "At least I am. 1

noting the interruption. "Provided, always

the judge, as bordering on legal phrase
ology) the project meets with your ap

said the judge.
"But, as you say, 'business is business,' "
continued the senior "and before we pro
ceed an v farther, we desire that Mr. Buz

to call him that; so Veet interrupted, with

"No. no," said Flathers. "We'll call him
'Helvetius.' We always have dono it,"

increase his interest every year, until lie he

And so it was settled.
The dissolution was duly advertised; but
the incoming of the new partner was an

Thanksgiving dinner, given by the firm to
It so happened that the new member of
the firm had been that day invited to dine
with l'ike, the lather of the daughter of
the railroad president aforesaid. With the
prospect of spending the evening with the
charming daughter and she was ada.zlcr,
ond don't you forget it! What could the
young man do?
Oh, yes! You say. you "see how it's all
coming out!" Perhaps you do; but just
No! He didn't, as you say -"Desert his
plebeian companions, to feaet with the pa
tricians." He was there, and made a hand&omc re
spouse, to the toast of the occasion. And
what's more when darkness put an end to
the festivities, he walked home with one of
the girls that worked in the bindery. And
what's more he didn't leave at the gate but
walked in for all the world ns though he
knew the way. And what's more, in six
months thereafter, he caused that same girl
to change her name from "Martlett" to
What have you got to soy to that?
Oh ! You wish to know what became of
the railroad president's daughter?

In some points of view Giant and Blaine
may be considered a strong ticket, but the
combination of these men and their respec

ed, will be more potent ut Chicago in June
than at the polls in November. It is, in
fact, doubtful if Mr. Blaine could carry his
