Make all the hasto you can, and remember

1 bowed and sped away, the precious oblong
package safely buttoned into my breast
pocket, over a heart which throbbed with
pride and solf gratulation.
From old Metcalfe, this signal mark of
favor was freighted with meaning. Ther.
was no telling where it might not lead.
What would Duffer have given for an op
portunity lik, this! How would Owlefield
bav, rejoiced In such a chance I
Mr. Metcalfe should are that his confidence
was not ill placed.
In half a dozen breathless sentences I re
lated my extraordinary luck to Mollis, who
was waiting supper for me.
"Pack the little black bag, Mollie," said 1,
waving away all her offers of food, except
cup of scalding coffee, which very nearly
took the skin off my tongue. "Lay out my
pepper and salt suit No, do, I cant eat I
111 Just get a bite on the train. Dont 1 tell
you I've got to catch tb. night erpres,"
Mollies admiring eyas followed me as I
"Oh, Tom," aaid aba, "1 always knew you

"Known, Moll! I say, bunt old Aalev
rat bom, Ukxs boots yet I These goiters
arent fit to travel to."
"I'll Just run down for them, Tom. I know
he can't nave shut np yet."
"No, you stay and sew np this rip in my
gloves!" said 1, impatiently. I'll go myself."
Old Awley, the cobbler, was fast asleep in
bis stall, but luckily the boots, newly soled
and heeled, were ready for me; and when tb,
train steamed out of the station I was seated
therein, my ulster buttoned to th. throat,
littl, Scotch cap which I had purchased of tb,
train boy perched on the side of my bead, and
a huge paper of sandwiches In my band.
The car was not especially crowded. I had
decided not to take a sleeper, in spite of Mol
"Vou'd better take berth," she said.
"You know yiu have never traveled in a
sleeper, and it would be such fuu."
"I dare aay," X tiryly rejoined. ''But, you
tea, I'm not traveling for fun, and I don't
mean to risk going to sleep." .
"Oh, Tom, shall you stay awake all night r
"One night won't hurt me, Moll"
But, after 1 had read the evening paper
through, and eaten two sandwiches and a
piece of Mollie's delicious horn, made cake, I
began to succumb to the rocking motion of
tb. train and feel a sensation of mort allur
Two stout men In the corner were snoring;
a lady at the other end of the car bad made
up an Impromptu bed for her bullet beaded
boys with a traveling shawl and two bags

"This w on't do," said I to myxelf. "I'm
bound to keep awake somehow 1 11 eat the
rent of the sandwiches."
I was not hungry, however, and even Mol
lie's dainties palied upon my appetite.
I was Jut about to throw the sandwiches
out of the window, when I caught the raven
ous glare of a pair of eyes opposite.
"Have some" said I, instinctively.
"Thank you, sir!" said the pale young man
opposite, mufti od to his chin lu a shabby trav
eling shawl, and wearing boote the dead
match to those that I had contemptuously l
stowed on old A w lav's eldest son the day be
fore. "I am a little hungry, if you don't
He devoured my leaving like a famished
wolf. I proffered my neat little wicker cov

tion, fruitier search for employ ment.
I remembered that I hud heard Mr. Met
calfe tell Owenson, the bookkeeper, A few
days previously that it would soon be neces
sary to employ two or three new clerks in the
down stairs department.
Perhaps," said I. "1 could help you to get
work in New York."
The big, sunken eyes sparkled.
"It would be salvation to me if you could,"
aid be. "I'm penniless and almost starr
ing." "I suppose you can bring references!"
"Oh. yw, I could do that."
"Well, I'll Me what can be done," said I,
with a pleasaut sense of patronage.
His hollow cough interrupted us; it racked
him from head to foot.
"Look here," said I, "youT, not fit to sit
op all night. Suppose we see if there bmt
accommodation in tb. sleepers. I beard tbe
conduct ir say the train wasnt extra full."
M7 companion raised his tbin hand witb a

"Oh, 1 11 treat," said I laughing, "and yon
shall pay me out of your first week's salary."
He acceded soruewbat unwillingly, and to
gether w, made our way into tlie sleeping
car Denrlora, where we found a section dur
1 lay down in the lower berth, not uncon
scious of a certain elation, both ia tbe char
acter of being of service to a man still poorer
and mole insignificant than myself, and in
this my first experience of tbe unknown lux
ury of a sleeping car.
"I'll only stretch myaulf out little and
rest," thought L "I wont go to sleep."
As I composed myself uuder th, blanket, I
beard th. pale young man tell tbe porter to
call him at Hunsdon.
"Hello!" said L "Arent yon going back
on th, return trip to New YorkT
"No," said he. "A, I'v. paid my far., I
may aa well stop off and sua my mother at
Hunsdon, and tell her what good luck there
la in store for me, thanks to you, sir. And I
will call on you at tbe address you gav. ma
in New York on Thursday, at 9 o'clock In the
Hunsdonl That was a good way off. It
would be nearly morning wben w, reached
Hunsdon. I thought. And while I was think
ing "Alford! All out for Alford!"
Could it be powihler Here was the bright
sun shining in at the curtained window, tb.
porter Jolly face elm. to mine.
"Make baste, sahl Alford, sah I Aint no
tim, to lose!"
I made a dab at my ulster, caught my bag
and mad, a rush for the door, wondering aa I
did so bow and when I could have gone to
steep, and bow lucky it was that I bad not
removed either coat, wairtcoat or boote wben
I lay down in tbe Deodora.
1 glanced at my watch an inexpensive
silver timekeeper aud found that it was a
little past 7.
" Early r said 1, to myself; "but old Met
calfe expressly said 1 was to lose no time.
I U go direct to Farboro's place."
Ai tbe thought ooursed through my mind
I involuntarily clapped my hand on tb.
breastpocket in which I carried tb. .precious
peckag, eontainio J, as I bad been lold, 13,009
K bills of larg, d'womtnatioos.
It was not tber I
In vain I searcled; in rain I turned the
fining inside out. It was Absolutely empty.
I staggered np agiinst tbe nearest lamp post
with a deadly sinl big of the heart.
Oh, that foul traitor with th. starveling
face and the hollow eyesl That fatal slum
ber in the rocking arm of toe Deodora I
I con Id see It all now as in tbe clear deep,
of A mirror. 1 tad been duped, deceived,
In tbe midst of ny consternation I realized
that I had not an instant of time to waste.
I hurried back to th. station, telegraphed
to th. next stoppi lg place of the express, in
terviewed the loml police, and having don,
all that there was to be done, decided that it
was best to returi. at once to New York and
make a clean breest of it to Metcalfe & Co.
Alas for my fot d visions of preferment I
The orange t wi. ight was fading away over
the western roofs wben I reached New York.
It was too late to go the office tbe fat old

"I'll go home f rat," I told myself. "I've
got to break this tews to Mollie she may as
well know it tirst as Inst, poor girl! And I'll
go to old Metcalfii afterward."
I slunk home tl rough tbe byways, lurking
along like a thief, and shrinking at the eyes
of an occasional policeman, untd I reached
my own door.
Mollie came nulling into my arms with a

"I have!" crwd I, bursting into a hoarse
laugh. "On the sleeping car Deodora!"
1 caught up tie package and rushed back
to the depot.
An express went out at a few minutes after
7, and I had bar ly time to leap on the back
platform of the lut car.
1 could have ihouted and sung for very
lightness of bear
Altogether, it seemed as if the fate, were
conpired in my favor.
Mr. Dusantoy was in Europe and Mr. Far
boro had only Jo 4 returned, within tbe hour,
from a Jaunt to a Canada fishing stream.
"Very Jtidicioi a of you, young man," said
he, "to wait ni til my arrival. This note
contains matter 'or my eyes alone."
Mr. Metcalfe commended me also,
"I see," said be, "that I did well in leaving
matters to joui discretion. Any expenses
you may bav, incurred during your stay in
Alford will be sertled by the bookkeeper."
"Oh, that was a mere trifle, sir," said L
And I took Ad"ntage of my chief's genial
mood to mentkn the case of Mr. Bernard
Cuahing, the pel t youth whom I had bated
so heartily for a few brief. Agonized hours.
Mr. Metcalfe irrote his name down in a
certain mysteriius pocket hook, which th,
clerks, among vhemselvea, had nicknamed
"The Book of .' udgment," and I knew tbe
matter was settled.
I received substantial promotion th. next

a Anecdote of Regnler.
Apropos of M. Augusts Vacquerie's "Jean
Baudry," here Is a curious story, not gener
ally known. Wben the piece was originally
played in 1863, Regnler Accepted the part
with enthusiasm. It was not only tbe role
that pleased him, but th. personage. H.
had until then played only low comedy part
valets, etc and for that reason h. would
never Allow his son to go to the Francaise,
when his name was on th. bill, not wishing
to appear ridiculous before his boy. The
rote of Jean Baudry enabling him to show
himself in a character worthy of esteem and
respect, he took his son to the theatre with
hlra on the first night Regnlt afterward
said that if he was excellent In th. character,
it was because be knew that his son was in
the audience, and could add his applause
without being ashamed. London World.
A Funny Figure.
A black figure which represents tb. Virgin,
and which is held in high veneration by the
people of Madrid, is very funny and sad. It
looks like a monkey dressed up in smart doll's
clothes. Its wardrobe is extensive. It is the
same image that was brought to be laid on
the bed of Don Carlos, sou of Charles V, and
is said to have cured bini of his illness. It is
kept in the Church of the Atocba, where
royal thanksgivings and marriages take
place. Madrid Letter.
How to Clean Pearls and Coral.
Set pearls which hav. become discolored by
wear may often be improved by placing in a
covered vessel with a mixture of whiting.
Ammonia and water, aud permitting them to
remain a few hours.
Coral may be cleaned by soaking in soil a
and water for some hours. A lather of soap
b then made and brushed nponthecoral with
the softest of hair orusbea. A frequent chang

Cost of Prewsea.
Stories of the cost of dresses for tbe stage
are mostly exaggerated. First, tbe dress
maker gives out a fabulous figure with tbe
knowledge of the buyer, and then the gossips
make it still bigger. Finally the newspapers
get bold of it and magnify it again till it is
inflated half a dozen times beyond the actual
cost. Why, some of the figures quoted for
stage dresses are enough to buy an outfit for
