State Register: "Hon. Sidney Grear,
whose serious illness was noted in a recent
number of the Register, died on the 18th
instant at bis home in Jouesboro, Union
county. Mr. Grear was one of the two
Democratic members of the Thirty-third
general assembly from the Fittieth senator
ial district, and was a rising young lawyer,
a member of the firm of Crawford & Grear.
He was born at Jonesboro, March 29, 1854,
and therefore in his thirtieth year, at the
time of bis death. Mr. Grf ar graduated
from the Southern Illinois Normal Univer
sity, and then become principal ot the
public schools of his native town. During
bis service in that capacity he read law
with Gov. John Dougherty and was admit
ted to the bar in 1878. He was elected to
the last legislature by a plurality of 6,000
votes over Thomas M. Logan, a brother of
John A.Logan. He attracted considerable
attention during the sessiou as one ot the
nine Democrats who stood by the Harper
high license bill. Sidney Qrear was a
young man of good parts, wbose early death
has cut short a promising career

through which ifrs. Dalton and her
daughters were conducted, with their
nirrors and gilding, and paintings a la
attoau, and satin hangings, all faded
now, but ftill gorgeous to eves unused
to the lavish display of wealth all this
turned Lena rather dizzy. She had
looked forward to it all; and yet, now
that it had come, she could not realize
tne tact that it was reallv to be hers,
but seemed walking as if in a dream.
"You must select the colors yon pre
fer, my dear," said Lord Alphmgton to
her. as they stood in the spacious draw,
ing-ronm. "I see these rooms must be
entirely redecorated and they shall be
begun at once. This crimson is not the
most becoming color to one so fair as
you, I think,'' he continupd, feeling as
if years were lifted from his head in the
prospect of the new interest opening
out before him.
"We have alwavs considered blue one
of Lena's colors, announced Mrs. Dal
ton. "I don't think I should like blue for
a town house, mamma," Lena inter
posed. "I think 1 should prefer green'
asubdU'-d sea-irreen; it would har
monize with plcutv of gilding, and that
always liuhts up well."
Lena ft It mom at home as they went
on to discuss details. Bertha took no
part in the conversation, but followed
the others silently, amusing herself the
while with examining the beautiful
works of art and objects of w''fU;rscat
tered about the rooms. '
"These are the rooms I have always
occupied when in town since this house
has ceased to be a home to inn, and
these I think of retaining for my own
use," said Lord Alplungtoii, with a
heavy sigh, as, crossing a landing, he
opened a door leading to several rooms
at the back of the house.
The first of these was fitted up as a
library. They had no sooner entered it
than the crimson blood rushed to Lena's
cheeks and brow.
"Oh, liertha-look!" she cried. ..
Bertha, glancing toward the point to
which her sister directed hpr attention,
started. She also blushed, and then
turned pal, while a tilra of moisture
came over her eyes aud blurred the ob
ject she looked at.
"What is it, young ladies?" Lord
Alphington asked, in surprise. "What
do you tind so extraordinary in the por
trait of uiy unfortunate son?"
Lena was the first to regain self
possession. Hertha's heart throbbed
fast: she could not trust herself to
speak. , ,
"Nothing very extraordinary, after
all," declared Lena; "but that portrait
is certainly very remarkably like a per
Bon we know so much so that it start
led us both at first."
"Indeed!" said Lord AlphingloU.-
