Yet It Waa Worth That Sum.
A weather ta mod. benevolent looking man,
of rather less tt an medium stature, sat in the
lobby of ouo of the city hotels, conversing
with a friend. His bronrod f.iee and healthy
complexiou, at least so much of it as was not
hidden by a f ill black beard in which the
silver threads had begun to appear, betok
ened an out do r life of healthful exercise.
A Jour-nil representative whs introduced to
the gentleman described, and found himself
in conversation with Capt. W. D. UiUor, for
many yeiirs lief re, since and during the war
commander of it number of Ixxit.i on tho Mis
sissippi und i:s tributaries, now superin
tendent of ouo of tho Detroit giis cornpunies.
The couvcrsalii 11 drifted to the old luj-s ou
tho Ixjwer Mt-sissippi, und iiiuny were the
interesting nmi-ilot-s related by the captain
of liia exjiei ieni es i:i llie wrviee.
"Tho most gi ateful man I ever saw," said
Capt. Miller, 4,v:is a i'.eje ted sjiecimeti of the
'native' along t leliottotus in Ixwer Mis-ourl.
As you nre no doubt aware, it not infre
quently happen that tho tloods in thi river
wash uwny the h-vees by which tiie adjoining
country is protected, and wholo counties are
inundated by the deluge of water that is
emptied in 1 pon them through these
'crevasses,' as 1 10 washouts are called.
rN' THE TRKE TOP.
"One day, many years ago, in a peri.xi of
exceptionally high wator, when the levees
had broken and the river was a perfect sea,
we were steami rig down tho stream at a very
rapid rate, aided, as we were, by the stiffest
kind of a eurvnt. The water was well up
into t lie treo tops along the lianks. and the
few shnnl ies th it were to bo found about that
particular locality had all but disappeared
below tho sun ace. The day was very cold,
and a raw wind swept down fr- nri tho north.
making it almost impossible for me to keep
comiortaino or bundling up and moving
aUiut constantly. As wo went plowing along
l saw al:ea;l or as an old tree, which had even
washed from tl e shore probably miles aboro,
the roots of v hich had evidently become
fastened to th bottom iu somo wav, and
tho switch en I rose and fell with the
waves and current, sometimes almost disap
pearing from view. I heard a cry, and,
looking closely into tho treo top as we went
by, 1 saw a niaii clinging to tho branches,
hangiugon for dear life and yelling as often
as he could get his head almvo wator, for
every receding wavo would let tho sinking
branches souse him to his evebrows. It was
impossibl'j to get alongside iu that current,
and we were so in away lielow tho jioor fol
low. I made up my mind to get him off, for I
knew ho mut surely perish if not speedily
relieved, so 1 ordered tho pilot to put her
aliout aud go bu-k. He objected vigorously
and insisted th it we would get aground on
tho bar below' L' wc made any such hazardous
attempt, but 1 insisted and ho gruinblingly
consented. It was tho work of an hour to
get the toat uliout, and when wo did it
seemed an hour more liefore w, could get
her to moving up stream, so swift was
the current. Finally, however, wo got her
back n.1 hive tho tree top, and then I put out a
boat and crew, aud. ut great risk, got the
man almanL He was as crude a secunen as
one ever saw a regular dog eater, whose
hair had never seen a comb and who had
doubtless just taken, involuntarily, his first
bath. He explained his presence iu the tree
top by saying t mt he lived a short distance,
above whi-ro o found him; and his house
had been UiKide 1, and, after having gotten
his family safely to a house on a little rise
near there, he I ad been capsized in an effort
to get back to I is bouse for some household
effects. He pleaded so earnestly to bo put on
sh.-ire that I got him off after great difficul
ties and proceeded on our way to Now Or
leans. Beyond a mere "much obleeged to
yer," he hail nothing to say, but it was pfain
to be seen thut lie was grateful enough.

hank. 1 dresse 1 hurriedly and went on deck,
and there on tho bank 1 saw a lantern waving
a signal. Tho 1 ight was very dark, the river
was stiil badly swollen, and I hardly knew
what to do. Tleshoro aiong there was dan
gerous, but I rt (letted that there might be
something serif us the mutter, so I let hex
drop hack down stream quite a distance, a'nd
then worked her in to tho shore. Wo burned
at least $r wort 1 of coal getting in and ran
tho risk of grounding tho boat, but we finally
got her there i.U right. When I got close
enough I saw a man and a woman, standing
hand in hand, tlio man holding a little willow
liasket. They -vero 'natives,' and evidently

them, end tln-y walked nboard and ap

"And 1 want to be one, of course."
"Then you must be more careful. I saw

"But there's something to Frank Harring

"Well, would you rather be classed with

"Because they never danoe with wall flow
"Then, because they are not polite enough

if you dance much with Frank Harrington
and that class of men people will think you
staml in need or attention."
"That 1 ani'a wall Dower?"
"And thou in time that will make me oner'
"For when Arthur Jones and the other
beaux get the idea that I am a wall flower
they will let me severely alone."
"They won't pay much attention to you."
"My dear, what makes you analyze every

satisticd to know that things were as they

with Frank Harrington if you want to. I
never meant that you should ignore him en

Arthur Jones more."

"So do I."
"Well, it's all quite odd and gives me some
new ideas aliout society. But tell me, Clara,

makes a belle, what makes a beau? Is the
situation just reversed f

"Then, whe-ie does it all begin?"
"Dear met you ask such queer questions.
I never have thought aliout it."
"How did Arthur Jones get to be one of
the "swell fellows, as we calf them?"
"I'm sure I don't know. Tho first season
he somehow got to dancing with the acknowl
edged belles of tho season before, and then all
the other girls were only too glad to dance
"I think I understand It," thoughtfully.
"A man has push. He insists on dancing ex
clusively witti tne acknowledged belles and
ignores the wall flowers. The debutantes are
then crazy to dance with him, aud the next
season he helps to make the belles."
"You provoke me again. Arthur Jones
has perfect ballroom manners."
"Of course; that's a requisite. So must a
hello be pretty and bright. But his manners
do not necessarily make him a beau, nor does
her beauty make her a bello. Doesn't it take
a uttle grain of selfishness, Clara?"
"Oh, I beg your pardon. I was just think
ing aloud." Chicago Tribune.

Mj-s. Mackay, of California, Paris and
Loudon, is said to be very intimate of late
with Isaliella, ex-queon of Spain. A good
story of the Mackay family has not until now
been told in print.
Mrs. Mackay's mother and sister lived with
her some years ago la Paris, and from the
immense wealth of the head of the family It
was supposed that the sister would come in
for a considerable dot, and it was true that
Mackay had either invested for her or pre
sented hor with a few hundred thousand dol
lars, more or less, a mere bagatelle in the
eyes of the muster of millions, but very ap

Una duy at tho legation of the United
States a dowager duchess of the oldest French
stock asked to see the American minister and
was u&heraj into his excellency's private
office. Hor grace then explained that she
had come in behalf of her son, the. young
duke, to projiose for the hand of Mrs.
Mackay's sister. She had not the honor to
know Mrs. Maokay or her mother, and of
course uot the young lady, so she thought the
proper way was to coma direct to the minis
tor. His excellency promised to convey her
proposals, which ho did the same day to
Mackay's mother-in-law. But the old Cali
forniau was not so much elated at the pros-
pect of the alliance as doubtless the duchess
'had very fondly anticipated; she asked the
minister to explain to the noble party that
her daughter was very poor, having no share
of the Mackay fortune, and was only in
Europe to ha educated for a governess, and
as Buch she expected to earn her own living.
The minister communicated his message to
the duchess, who was disappointed but in no
way embarrassed. She said that she had
been misinformed, and that of course under
the circumstances her offer would not stand.
It is a purely business arrangement in her
The young lady afterward married on Ital
ian prince, but; the preliminaries were not
