The sreut ilr.-twin.uii in inv life has
. been my namo. 1 urn uiiiiost loth to
tell it yoiii tlrturcst reader but truth,
like murder, must out. ItU nlns! my
pen almost n fuses to record it Peri

fluttu bti:st of it, aud trust you don't
tliiuk less of mo for it.
My father was a well to do trades
man, aud departed from this life peace
fully, bequeathing to me little else than
the name, because, as he averred In his
will, he made the money by hard work
aud intended that I should follow so
good an example.
The most extraordinary provision of
my late, but not deoply-lamontod fa
ther's will was that as soon as I could
preset myself at his old bank and lay
down a thousand pounds in gold on
tho counter, I was to be heir to what
property ho had left no amount being
I was now the only representative of
the Dabchuck family, my poor mother
having slowly drooped and diod under
lh awful name sho had assumed, as
did also many baby D;tbchucks, who,
wiser than I, refused to livo in a world
wiicro such a millstone of a namo would
be sure to drag; them down.
Tho only person .who seemed to
thrive under such an infliction was my
father, who had the digestion of an os-
uich; aud no conscience to speak of, or
he wouldn't have treated his offspring
so cruelly as to leave him that is me,
mind you with only five pounds to
face tho world with, excepting two
suits of clothes, not quite new, a silver
watch of the turnip style, warranted
to m only when carried.
His business, furiiituro, and every
thing was soli to add to tho fortune I
was to come into when, was only too
I had often heard that fortunes were
made out of twopence-halfpenny, but
always in places other than where the
lucky individuals were born.
Having seen tho cider Dabchuck
placed where everybody must rest
sooner, or later, whether princo or
peasant, 1 made up my modest bundle,
and bidding ;ood by to London, went
like Dick Wuiuington on my travels;
but unlike him, with , dreadful name
at my heels, ready to bring me into
scorn and derision at any moment.
I sat on a milestone just us he had,
feeling very tired and hungry, and with
a few promising blisters to remind mo
that walking was not all pleasure, and
listened for tho sound of 'bells, as an
nugury of futiiro grandeur and pros
perity; but alas! what chimo of bells,
however prosaic, would ring for the
name of Periwinkle D.ibchuck?
' 1 did hear a solitary tiukle, which
tcrtiiiniv was too Inutile to stir tljp
Ix-art and quicken the pulses, the sound
. being foili.wcd by tho well known mel
ancholy c:y, not of u bird, but of a
donkey, behind which was a tinker's
"Good morning, young gentleman,"
aid the proprietor of the show, looking
critically at me in a way that made me
shift uneasily on tho milestone, "you
don't happen to have a little bacoy
"Don't smoke," I answered mildly.
"Tho-jght so, mister; does your mo
ther know you are out eh?"
"Haven't got a mother," I pro
tested. "Thought not, mister. What's your
name?" was the sarcastic rejoinder, as
if the fact of my having no tobacco had
roused the tinker's choW.
"D.ibchuck," I repliod innocently,
taken oC my guard by his bouncing
"Good lor', Noddy!" he exclaimed,
addressing tho donkey and doaling him
a blow from a short cudgel, at which
it lifted up its voice iu derision; "that's
a name to go to church with, if you
like! Goe up!" .
"Just my luck." I muttered as I
arose from my hard seat; "even a tink
er derides me. 1 think 111 trv and get
my unfortunate namo changed when I
get back to London."
Having lived a vagabond life for a
while, and nearly spent my little all, I
fell in with a traveling circus, the
friendship of whose proprietor I was
lucky enough to make at a roadside
inn, by a Judicious treat of unsweotened
if there was ono thing more
than another I liked from babyhood al
most, it was horse-riding; and 1 flatter
ed myself I could do tho equestrian
trick with here and there a one.
Most of my pocket money for years
went on sucn treats taKen on tno sly,
though, for had my father known it he
would have cut me out of his will en
tirely, and not troubled mo to go in
searcu of a thousand pounds.
On one occasion I narrowly escnpod
, delation at his hands, and even at this
period, when my busy pen writes this,
I have a seusallou as if cold water is
trickling down my back, at , the mere
thought of it

chased a pair of spurs, just to appear a
reai genueman-riaer ana not a cockney
doing; the grand on a superannuated
bit of horseflesh that would soon be
sent to the knacker's to provide delect
able food for animals that are fond of
nocturnal rambles on the slates and
I pilotod my firey Bucephalus safely
down the aristocratic regions of Bel
gravis, and flattered myself that many
a fair one looked admiringly at my still
budding form, that had not thon quite
done growing, without, however, con
necting its owner with any such a vory
snobbish name as that of Dabchuck.
"Now, here," I thought, as I arrived
abreast of the statue of the Iron Duke,
whoso fine chiseled face seemed to
frown down upon me, "I'll try my
spurs. Won't they wake my Arab steed
And didn't it with a vengoanco
that's all! First it put its back up, and
straightened its ears what it did with
itstau Ican'tsay, not having the faculty
of seeing backwards; then it wheeled
around in a circle, as if dancing the
whirlwind gallop, and thon like an ar
row from a bow it shot down the road
in the direction of Kensington, I with
out my hat and in the bluest funk it
has ever been my lot to experience. It
was wonderful what a commotion I
made in that aristocratic neighborhood
and how obsequious pooole wero in get

Just before I got to Chelsea bridge I
managed to get the brute a little better
in band, and was thinking of sawing
away at his mouth, when, oh! horror?
advancing toward me was the name of
Dabchuck in lnrge gilt letters, and
seated in the front of the cart was my
respected parent, who thank goodness,
was somewhat shortsighted, aud not
good at making out objects at long dis
tances. To have hesitated at this supreme
juncturo would be to bo lost, so in
sheer desperation I plunged my reek

simile, of course into my horso's.

flash of lightning.
It will be seon from this that I
able to keep myself in a saddle,
when Mr. Manly how I envied
his name proposed that I should
uis troupe, as a sort of utility young
man. I jumped at the offer and was
forthwith enrolled among the company,
having first lent my master half a sov
ereign, which he promised faithfully to
return to me, but never did from that
Up to this period 1 was as far off tho
wanted thousand pounds as ever; in
fact, metaphorically speaking, I was
on the rocks, as far as coin was con
cerned, having just one sovereign, a
three-peony bit, two halfpence aud a
farthing in" my possession.
Hide, indeed! How till the conceit
was taken out of me! Why, I knew no
more of the business I had taken in
hand than a baby, but I was willing to
'earn, which in Manly1 s eyes was ev
erything at least, so he averred, and
I believed him.
What a guy I must have lookod,
swinging from a rovolving crane, with
a large leathern belt fastened around
my waist, vainly trying . to keep my
footitig on an ambling horse, now dau
cling behind his tail, anon pirouetting
before his eyes, which, however, did not
blinic 1 he brute was nsod to those
kind of exhibitions, and, no doubt,
could he have spoken, would have ex
pressed his contempt for my perform
ance. However, I took kindly enough to
tho lifo, which suited my somewhat
Bohemian propensities, and got on well
with my co'mrados, with all of whom I
was a great favorite.
We wore doing a grand tour, a week
at this place and that, sometimes to
full houses canvas at others to slack
Now came tho turning point in my
life. I fell desperately iu love with as
beautiful a creature as Heaven ever
created a being tall, fair as a lily,
graceful as a gazelle, eyes liquid blue,
hair golden, and tho sweetest, of faces,
anzelic in expression.
Our company had pitched their tent
at Bournemouth, that queen of Hamp
shire watoring places, and we were do
ing right down good business, some
times to quite fashionable audiences,
for tho upper as well as the middlo and
lower classes like to attend a circus,
the elders going on a plea of takinr
It was at oue of these performances
that I first set eyes on my divinity, in
my character of a French chasseur, on
his faithful l.orse.
Her face haunted me at 1 night, and
when she did not come to our show I
felt quite despondent; tho world, in
fact, at such times seemed altogether
out of Jolut.
I admit it was the height of pre
sumption in mo, a poor professional,
earning a baro subsistence, to dure to
raise niy eyes to such loveliness; but,
after all, love is universal, and does
not Btop to ask permission upon whom
it shall be bestowed, for it laughs at
locks, bolts and bars, and is, excepting
deatii, the one thing common to the
highest and lowest of Heaven's crea
tures. . I followod her homo surreptitiously
after ono of the performances, and
found she lived with her father, a re
tired morchaut, in a pretty villa in the
suburbs, whore roses grew in wild profusion,-
and climbing ' clematis and
spreading honeysuckle perfumod tho

My chief delight was to exercise my
famous steod up and down the roads iu
front of, and contiguous to my Clara's
home. I had bribed a communicative
servant, and learned that my darling's
name was Clara Vincent.
One brhrht, sunny morninr. when
the birds wore sinking blitholv, and ft
delicious breezo, full of health-giving
ozone, came from off the sea, 1 was out
with Trumpeter as usual, when just as
1 was before Clara's door, a German
band struck up a march which our
band usually played during 'my per

peter stood on his hind legs, fighting
the air with his front ones, and 1 rolled
ingloriously into the road.
Picking up my hat with his teeth, the
intelligent creature galloped homo,
loaving me insensible and suffering
from concussion of the brain.
I learned afterwards that Clara saw
the accident and had me conveyed into
her house, which proved a veritable
heaven to me.
I am now her husband, and the pos
sessor of twenty thousand pounds,
while my namo has been changed to
Vincent; for, on hearing my story and
the story of our love, her father ad
vanced the necessary thousand, and I
came into my father's fortune: so the
thousand is no longer wanted.
How She Saved the Interest.
A woman s vanity is at times her
protector. A New York correspondent
tells an incident of the panic in the
I am told how one lady saved her
interest on her deposit in the Second
National Bank at the time of the brief
run on it a month ago. She drew a
check and went with her brother to
the bank, he carrying the check.' In
the crowd they became separated, and
when the brother reached the pavingr-
tellcr tho drawer of the check was some
distance away. The paying-teller made
some inquiries of the presenter of the
check, probably to gain time, and
among other things asked him to de
scribe the lady whom he claimed had
given him the check. He did so, ' and
the teller, doubtless to gain more time,
turned to the clerk who keeps such
records and asked for the booked de
scription of Mrs. . It happened
that the lady at this moment was very
near the clerk and heard him read the
book's record's of her gifts of person:
"Fat brunette, about 40, with gray banjrs
ana a wart on ner nose." in
a - V
she rushod to her brother
nantly drew him away, declaring she
"would not deal with such nasty bank
officers." The check was . not paid,
and her interest goes on uninterrupted
ly, as the run amounted to nothing.'
Eno's defalcation being made good,
her vanity saved her considerable in

A Canoo Kaco iu Alaska.
At this season most of the Indians
are otl.gathering their winter supply of
salmon or laying iu stores of coin by
working in the canneries and packing
houses. Those remaining hud been
practicing for a great canoo race, and
on the arrival of the steamer the crews
wore gathered in and tho signal givon.
Kadashaks, one of the Stickeen chiefs,
commanded one long canoe in which
sixteen Indians sat on each side, and un
othcr chief rallied thirty-two followers
for his long war ennoe. They wero a
picturesque sight as they squatted in
the long dugouts, ' wearing white shirts
and handkerchiefs tied around their
brows. While they waited each canoe
and its crew was reflected in tho still
waters that lay without a ripple around
the starting point near tho shore.
When the eannou ou the ship's deck
gave tho signal they shot forward liko
arrows, the broad paddles sending the
wator in great waves back of them and
sending titer spray high on elthor sfde.
Kadashuks and the other chief sat in
the steru to steer, and encouraged aad
urged on their crews with hoarse grunts
and words of command, and tho Iu
dians, paddling for life, kept time iu
their strokes to a savage chant that
rose to yells and war-whoops when
the two canoes fouled just off the stake
boat It was the most exciting boat
race, and bets und enthusiasm ran
high on tho steamer's deck during its
progress. Tho money that had been
subscribed by tho traders in the town
was divided between the two crews,
and at night thero was a grand pod
akh, or feast, in honor of the regatta.

In tho number of springs and noted
geysers, the Yellowstone National park
and Now Zealand far exceed Iceland,
in which "The Great Geyser" and
Strokhr are the ' only two prominent
epoutors. As to the number of springs
in New Zealand, there are no definito
data, but they appear to be numerous.
In the ! Yellowstone park, over two
thousand springs have been enumer
ated antl mapped, and among them are
seventy-one geysers, of which twenty
are known to spout to a height of not
less than fifty feet Of course, in each
of the three countries there are hot
springs outside of the areas as here
indicated; and, if these are taken
into account, the American localities
will exceed the others, especially if the
California and Nevada springs are
counted. Ilowever.leaviug tho latter out
of account we find, that mtho adjacent
country both north aud south of the
park there are springs on the same
north and south line with the geyser
basins of Fircholo river; and, if they
are considered as a part of tho same
system, the length of the line of ther
mal activity is about 200 miles.
As to the heights to which the gey
sers throw the columns of water, there
is probably but little difference between
the three regions, although tho Yellow
stono park ha, perhaps, a great uu tu
ber vuicli erupt regularly to si height
of ono hundred feet or more. Tho
