THE ROCK ISLAND AKGUS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 1890.
t hold In my band these letters
Ami the tire gleams up In the crate;
Bhnll I throw them into the embers
And leave tberu there to their fate?
Bo kmg ago they were written
So long been hidden away,
While the hands that penned them Ml
Over silent hearts today.
JI're is one from a spirit sister.
Whose life, like a shadowed stream,
Flowed on so softly, gently,
Till it disappeared like a dream.
On her lipa the name of a lover
She bod not dared to wed.
Her life went out of the darkness
To a glorious light Instead.
And here Is one from another
The rose at ber bridal feast
Had scarcely fallen and faded
Ere death struck cold at her breast;
When life was fairest and sweetest
To yield its rich nectar up;
This was the fate that was waiting,
This was the bitterest cup.
There are letters still more sacred
Bo tender and fond and true
I hold them now In reverence,
While niy eyes are moist with dew.
Shall I burn thetur Oh, I cannot!
Tied up with a sable thread,
I shall put them back with the treasures
Which whisper yet of the dead.
"Essie" in the Tliibodaux Sentinel
I thought he was asleep, for he liiul been
quiet awliilo an unusu'il thins for him
when be sudilouly raised himself up on hN
elbow ami looked at mo.
"Seo here," nays he. IIo spoke as plain as
could lie, though ho hadn't much voice; the
doctors said his lungs were all Rons, but for
all that anybody could tell that he'd altvuys
bad a real pleasant way of speaking. Some
how he diil tiuvc a coaxing way with him,
different from any man I ever txk care of.
No mutter what he said and he had no pa
tience, w hntever you couldn't get angry and
you couldu't help trying to please him.
"Tell me now just what they say," ho went
on. " I suppose 1 cau't last much longer f
"Oh, we cau't none of us tell what turn
you may tke," says I, helping him to lie
down as easy as I could and tiling the spread
over him. He never was suited If it wasn't
all straightened up as nice and smooth as
could be, though ho wouldn't keep it so for
He looked at me with those big, dark eyes
of his. His face was so thin thut his eyes
did look out of all reason, but even then you
would have known hiiu for a handsome man.
"I want to toll you my story," says he.
They often begin in that way. It appears
like when they're away from all their own
folks, aud feel that they've got to go, they
cant rest till you know all about 'em. Land
knows it don't do any good; but I always hu
mor my patients, though some of the nurses
do call me a fool for my pains. "If it does
'em any good, let 'em talk," says I. I always
listen. But sometimes they get all mixed up
and can't tell you anything straight after all;
sometimes they drop off in the middle. But
this ono was a real gentleman, and I know he
had a story comi n g to the hospital as he did,
straight from his office, and the young man
that came with him saying: "IIo hasn't got
any friends to go to."
"I thought you was going to sleep to-night,"
says I, sitting down by him comfortable like.
But he didn't take no notice of me; he just
stretched out his hand and looked at it. He
had tlie whitest littlo hands, as slender and
white as any lady's, and on his third finger
he wore a handsome seal ring. It was a
green seal, with a kind of figger on it. "It
belongs to my family coat of arms," says he,
and he laughed kind o' scornful And then
he looked up at me with that wishful look of
his, and, says he: "I want you to send it to
somebody when it's all over with me, I'm
going to tell you who she is before I finish
Then he shifted himself a little and went
right on without lookiug at me. I couldn't
have stopped him if I had tried to.
"To begin with," says he, "I was born at
sea. I'm the man without a country. I
never hail one. My mother had been amus
ing herself Ui Europe, aud she went on amus
ing herself for a good many years after. I
don't think she troubled herjelf. much about
me, though I have heard her say I looked
lite an angel, in long curls anil knickerbock
era. It isn't what I should have supposed;
but women ought to know best about those
"We had plenty of money in those dava.
My father was in business. I didn't know
very much alwut it, except that he furnished
the wherewithal We had to ask him for it.
and sometimes he blustered a littlo about our
speeding so much, but it always came. I
went to school and to college. I hail plenty
of friends, plenty of fun, and didu't want
lor anything in those days."
He stopped for a minute and looked at me
" Tisn't much of a story when you come to
tell It, says he. "Somehow it seems like
more than it is."
But pretty soon ho looked at his ring again.
It was too loose on his finger, and he began
turning it round with the other poor, thin
"They had all sorts of names for me," he
began. "My own name is Charles Edward.
They say there has always been one in the
family since the time of King Charles. But
it was 'Prince Charlie' oftener than anything
else. She would laugh and call me 'the Pre
tender.' Heaven knows I didn't pretend with
her. It had got down to dead earnest by
that time. But I haven't got to that yet.
"I came home from college, and there didn't
seem to le anything very pressing for me to
do. Father never spoke of my going Into a
profession, aud I bated business. Mother and
Anna Anna was my eldest sister, then there
was another little one they both liked to
kave me to go about with them, for father
was sick enough of it by that time. We trav
eled, too. We siient ono winter In the Ber
mudas, and Anna and I went over to England
for a year. We made a regular dig of It,
seeing all the English cathedrals. That was
Kan's idea. But we had no end of a good
time. Then we came home, and father got
dower and slower about supplying the sinews
of war. To tell the truth, I got pretty deep
in debt, though I had mistrusted something
fur a good while,
At last the crash came, and it was a bad
one. It was all up with Uurd and Enderby
father was the Enderby. He came home and
hut himself up in bis bedroom; be wouldn't
see even mother, and there was the very dick
ens to pay. What could I do! I had no more
idea than a baby. Anna that girl has tre
mendous pluck, and good she's one of the
best girls alive Anna went to governessing.
Ned and Mortimer, the two younger bovs,
come home from school and went in stores.
It strikes me that's a good way to be a cad,
but I didn't blame them. Father well,
father was found dead one morning. I sup
pose it was all right apoplexy of the heart,
or something of that kind they called it.
Mother went home to her eldest brother and
took Alice with her. Everything went under
the hammer, and I was fairly turned out of
"How little women know about lifel An
na, poor girl, thought I could do anythiug.
With your talents she used to say blew

not for use. They wouldn't bring sixpence
In the market. Borne of .father's old friend
wanted to help me. I trial a government
clerkship, but that was worse than lieing a
galley slave. To come in at just such i min
ute, like a barber or a bootblack I I couldn't
stand that. Then I went to Mexico with a
party. It was a big thing; there was a min
ing scheme, and a piece of railroad to be
built, and a long pay roll I was in the
office, I was there nearly two ytiirs, but I
got down with the fever and iad a pretty
bad time, so one day I started for New York.
When I got in sight of land, I had just one
dollar in my pocket."
"What did you dor' says I.
"Oh, I gave that to the steward," says he,
trying to laugh. "I had my trunks put on a
hack and drove up to the Brunswick. I
registered, and turned to go out. 'See
herel' I called out to the clerk, 'give that
fellow a couple of dollars for me when they
get my trunks in' and off I walked and left
him to pay the driver.
"I stopped there for a week, and hunted
up an old friend and borrowed a fifty. Then
I got taken on a newspaper. But that was
work twenty-four hourja day. It pulled
me right down. 1 couldnt eat"-l jusf Hved
on brandy and strong coffee, I never was as
strong as Samson." .
"Well here I am at last," he began again,
after lying still a few minutes. When I be
gan I meant to tell you about a woman. Of
course there was more than one. I never
could resist a pair of bright eyes, and they
didnt resist me much either. But not one
of them would have stood by me through
thick and thiu, nor did I care for any one of
them long. There was a Spanish girl in
Mexico who would have enjoyed running a
knife through tne: but New York was too

I came to find her who mode life seem like
a different thing. She isn't much over twen

never pretended that she did. I know she

to the bottom of my heart, and if there was a
spark of honor there it flamed up. I told her
just how I had been knocked about the world
and that I knew I was of no more account
than a handful of chaff; but she kept saying,
'It isn't too late.' Of course I knew it was.
I knew I should never amount to anything.
I hated to work I didn't start right I'm 31
years old. But she always said so softly,
too 'It isn't too late.' It sent me into a
lawyer's office finally. We had some foreign
correspondence and I made myself useful ; 1
did know how to read. I haven't lived in
libraries for nothing. Perhaps, after all, I
could pick up something! 'It's the unex
pected that happens who knowsf I said to

there. The cat can look at the king, you
know. But then I got this cough. I bad a
light overcoat. It looked all right, but there
wasn't any warmth in it. And it was so in
fernally cold. I was checking off my debts.
She said one day: 'I never trust a man who
is reckless almut money matters.' That
struck home, I can tell you. It set me to
thinking, and I mado a list of everything 1
owed. 1 used to get up iu the night and
strike a lijrlit when I remembered one that
wasn't down. I meant to pay every cent.
Every penny I could scrape went for that.
You wouldn't believe how long I could live
on a V. I took a receipt every time, and I
put them all in an envelope with her initials
on it. I thought maybe I would show them
to her some day. It's in my Shakespeare

some books of mine, and this ring when I'm

Then he stopped and held his fingers on the
ring. "I'll write down the name to-morrow,"
says he; "I'm alive yet." And with that he
gave a littlo sigh like and turued a little
more ou his side. He was all tired out, and
I was glad wheu he dropped off.
But Lord bless you! in the morning we
found he w.-is gone.
1 saw bis sister; she came finally. She
was a slim, high strung little body, dressed
all in black. She looked and litoked at him,
and after a while she stooped over and began
to take the ring off his linger. I tried then
to find out about the folks in Cincinnati.
She had eyes a little like his. She looked
me straight in the face as keen as could be.
"No, we haven't auy friends in Cincin

of the galleries to 'JIT.K0 square feet. The
width of the main avenue was described as
being nearly double that of tho nave of St.
Puui's, whilo its length was four times as
great. The following comparisons were made
at the time: "The walls of St, Paul's are 4
feet in thickness, while those of the Crystal

The artesian well at Augustana Col
lege is an assured si ccess notwithstand
ing that the Union tbla morning sneers at
the project and holds that "Mississippi
river water is good nough for washing
glasses." The August ana well water is
contemplated for no such purpose. The
folks up there believe it is as much their
privilege to enjoy the pure unadulterated
water that comes from the depths of the
earth as it is that of the down town peo
ple. As stated yesU-rday, within the last
few weeks the projet t of sinking the well
has been taken in hand by the Uemlandet,
the leading Swedish paper in this coun
try. In an editorial article of last week's
issue estimates o" co it, depth, time re
quired for boring, ;tc , are given, and
plans for working are outlined. Subscrip
tion lists are to be f ent out immediately
to the various agents for the paper, with
instructions to soli sit funds for the
sinking of the well. They are justified
in saying to the public that
the proposed artesian well is now
an assured fact. The project .will be
pushed with energy, and the work will
probably be completed some time this
fall. - When finished it will be not only a
much needed improvement to the college,
but also a credit to tie community and a
monument to the enterprising spirit of
the Swedish people. Tho inauguration
of this work is due mainly to the tact of
the Rev. JespeMon. the active and en
thusiastic business manager of the col
lege. He also has bis shoulders under
the work of removin j the debt of about
$40,000 from the oollege. He has a
number of agents in the fie!d. who, to
gether with his indi vidual efforts, have
taken subscriptions to the amount of
115.000. . To this must be added the
handsome coutributioa of $750 from Re
public, Mich., reported this week by
Prof. Philip Dowel I.
