A number of the eastern rail raids hav

rules rcgnrdlnn; tho iv,uo of reduced
rates to nlurtfymon, and unauthorized

tho change having Wen published, con
siderable correspondonco between the
clergy nnd tho railroads lias resulted.
The recent letter from lion. Chnuncey
M. Dcpew, President of the New York
Central, corrects certain erroneous Im
pressions and states that compiny's jxv
sttlon in tho matter very clearly. Tho
letter Is as followt:
New York Central and Hudson River Railroad
Co., Grand Central Depot.
New Yoiik. January 10, l"OS.
Bn. Stolon J. Contlt and If. jr. Sttlblni
D. I)., CommUte:
Okxtmsuk.v, I nm In receipt of your
letter of January 15th, enclosing tho
resolutions of tho l'resbyterian Minis
ters' Association of Rochester.
Tho resolutions nro based upon n
misapprehension of tho facts. The
press dispatch announcing that tho
New York Central had withdrawn tho
ministerial hnlf-rato tickets "because
tome of tho ministers had irhtii,cd tho
privilege, loaning their permits to un
authorized persons, nnd sometimes even
selling them," wns wholly unauthor
ized. No such information or notice
was given to tho pressor tonnyono elso
by any ofllcer of this company. There
was also nn interview reported with me
on this subject, making similar, if not
more serious charges, but no such In
terview ever took vdiico.
I deeply regret tho publicity which
was given to this matter and the dis
cussion which has grown out of it be
fore wo had really arrived at whnt was
tho best policy for this company nnd
its associates in tho Trunk Lino Asso
ciation to purhiio. It had Won devel
oped that very grent abuses existed in
tho Issuance nnd use of tho so-called
ministerial ticket. It was not, however,
tho fault of tho ministers. So far as I
can nscortnln, no clergyman of any
church has been guilty of any impro
priety in tho uso of this privilege. Llko
most departures from regular rules,
this ono led nfter nwhllo to serious de
moralization of passenger rates. Tho
prlvilego of tho ministerial order be
ciiuio extended to nil persons who hnd
over been ordained us clergymen,
whether thoy still had any charge or
performed any ministerial services or
not. Mnny who had gone into business
claimed and received tho order. Then
it was extended to missionaries nnd
oulcersof the Salvation Army, of the
Y. M. C. A., nnd of other religious or
Boml-religious organlzitions. This ena
bled railway ofliclnls who desired to do
so to issue tho half-rate ticket to almost

do not treat their agreements with each
other with tho same sense of honorablo
obligation which tho ollleers would ob
serve in their individual transactions.
Wo wero nmazed to discover that in or
der to incronso their business without
apparently cutting tho rntos n few of
tho roads placed tho ministerial ticket
in scalpers' olllces for sale. In this way
they camo into tho hands of tho general
public. It frequently ooourrud that
tho conductor, when calling upon homo
possonger whom ho did not think was
a minister to produce tho ministerial
order which every clergymnu earriud,
was met by a llat refusal, simply be
cause tho passenger was not a minis
ter, had no order and had received or
purchased tho ticket In some ono of
the ways which 1 have described. Or,
tho -inductor would find that under
tho guise of a mlsslomii or ollleor
of ono of these organizations ho hud re
ceived the order and ticket or else had
bought a ticket which some ono who
could not bo vouched for as u clergy
man with n charge had secured, and
then placed In n, sontpor's olllco for wile.
Of course tho essential principle at tho
Wttom of tho rotations between tho
railways and tho public is tha every
body shall be treated nllko; that tho
railway furo shall bo like tho postage
of tho government, tho same to ovoiy
one who boards the train and becomes
a passenger between tho same points.

"I WHevo I will, and thank you,"
said Miss Pnttcn, Wginnlng to smooth
down her hair. "The smell of them

"And stomach." said Miss Patten,
wnlking majestically to the house.
"It mnyn't bo proper for me to stop

"Why, certainly," said Dr. John,
meekly. "It's In the very air out here to
do erratic things, but tho neighbors in
your town shall noverknow, I swear it"
A week Inter Oliver's ofllce Wy, a
freckled and red-headed youngster by
the name of Sam, changed to Slam by
the much-triod clerks, knocked nnd
announced hoarsely: "Lady to seo
ycr." lie threw such meaning in the
words, his bearing nnd manner were so
full of dark mystery, Oliver almof t ex
pected Mrs. de Kestaud, instead of
Aunt Hannah. No letter had come
from the little lady of the Trouble
some, and that discourtesy showed sho
might almost merit her connection's
condemnation; it was certainly friv
olous to neglect assuring her preserver
of her safety. The doctor had Wen es
pecially unpleasant about it "ou
see," he would suy. "I told you there
were two sides to every story; and the
Frenchman may have Wen a much-
enduring man." The ofllce boy dragged
n chnlr near Oliver's desk,, nnd with n
significant look withdrew.
"It's cither brench cr promise or
some feller wot's cheated hor on n land
d"al," he said to the clerks as he shut
the door carefully. "I guess there's
meat In It, for tho Wss grinned when
ho sec her."
"I hope you have good news, Miss
Patten," Oliver 6aid, eagerly.
"If no news Is good I have," sho an
swered, with a sigh. "I've heard from
Mr. Perkins that keeps tho depot, and
he says sho ain't been there nt nil, nor
no word come. There wa'n't no mall
for md, neither. I seen that woman
at Colorado Springs. She says
Mlnny got thero all right, and she
bought her a plaid ulster, a hat and
some other things, and Mlnny nnd tho
dog went by train the next day. and
Mlnny promised to write to her, but
hadn't. Tho only ono that knowed
anything down hero was tho ticket
seller, who remembered her nnd bald
he sold her a ticket for Chicago. Sho
must have been nfrald her husband
would ask. Ho said lots of the con
ductors were discharged about that
time, and that was why, most like, nil
I interviewed hadn't set cj-es on her."
"Still, it is almost impossible for a
girl to bo lost traveling nowadays.
Sho probably took elaborate precau
tions, for fear Do Ilestaud would fol
low her; but If tho dog went nlong sho
will be found easy enough."
"I am. as j-on folks say out here,"
snld Miss Patten, grimly, "going on
tho trail, nnd shnll watch out most for
the dog, which 1 know she'll drag
around with her. I don't doubt but 1
shall find her when that money's gone,
Mr. Oliver; ns I told you, she would not
appear until It was nil spent I think
it's my dooty to pay you now."
"Don't you think it would W better
to let her settlo her own nccounts?
Sho must W taught tho value of
money some w ny ; and when you find her
if she is determined not to go back to
her husband you should Institute nsult
to make him account for her property.
They told mo up In tho mountains he
was getting rid of It rapidly."
I hain't in general," sighed Miss
Patten, "much liking forlawing; folks

laughed; "but I should W happy to ad

"Thank you. I shall W glad to know

"You dono right, Mr. Oliver; nnd If
she should come to you again us she

"You can trust me," he said.soWrly,
and uf tor she was gone ho sat long in

and hard, ruled with an iron rod of

grateful niece knew nothing of con

his touted head. "Perlico to see yor,

clerks were looking sideways at tho

in open-mouthed ndmlrntlon. Oolng

but in a row or a deed of mystery how

"Sorry to trouble you, sir," snld the
man, awkwardly, "but tho old lady
said you was to bo sent for, as you
could testify to tho bad character of
the man In charge "
"Whatold lady?" asked Oliver, sharp
ly, much nnnoyed at tho matter.
"Name Patten. 1 think a'big woman,
considerabla thin. She camo from
your office, sho said, and had noticed for
days a black looking man n-following
her. and sVe sees him watting for her
In the street So sho strolls, careless
like, towards the city hall, sir; right
near sho sees he's still nfter her, ond
she turns and grabs him nnd runs him
in herself, as neat as any of the force
could 'a done."
"You don't know the man?"
"Ills face ain't in the gallery, sir,"
as if In apology, "but It's black and
ugly enough to be, I'll say that for
him. She tumbled the man down the
steps right in the chief's room, nnd ho
sent me here. She wanted the man ar
rested for a suspicious character; so tho
chief sent me to get your testimony."
"I'll go down at once," bald Oliver,
picking up his hat "I fancy I know
"I'll walk Whind, sir," said the po
liceman, politely, "for seeing mc walk

lock-up your friends might think you
was Wing run In."
At the station, as he suspected, Oli
ver saw the man wns Louis, De Ilcs
taud's servant, nnd black and ugly ho
was, swearing to himself in French,
but refusing to answer any questions.
Oliver had seen master and man tho
past few days in Denver, and knew he
himself was under their surveillance.
He told the chief that Miss Patten was
justified in her proceeding; the man
had a bad reputation in the North
Park, and had certainly Wen acting in
a suspicious manner; the past week ho
hnd seen him watching nbout tho
streets. Tho chief admitted tho mar
was not handsome, might have acte(
oddly, but there must be some chnrgi

ly, "afeard of that raskill? Not a mlto

Louis resisted, with frightful pro
fanity, but the search was made, and
tho result was n loaded revolver and
an ugly knife.
"A greaser outfit." said a stalwart
"You can keep him in jail a day oi
two on this charge," continued Oliver,
"to glvo Miss Patten a chance to leavo
tho city. I tell you on my own nc
count, knowing the man up at my
shooting-place, ho is a dangerous char
acter. I had an encounter with him
onco nnd found him nn unpleasant
person to deal with."
Tho exasperated Frenchman was led
away breathing curses and defiance.
In Oliver's gray eyes was a smile of
malice that Louis well understood.
He hnd paid up that rudeness and tho
accounts were squared. There would
W a debt still when Louis was
free again; tho man who laughs last

Miss Patten, rising nnd pinning her
shawl, "but I don't want you to think

Good-by, Mr. Oliver; I'm borry ray
family has brought you so much
trouble, but I cal'lato from now on
you've heered the last of us."
As days lengthened into weeks, nnd
weeks Into months, without n word
from Hannah Patten or her erratic
niece, Oliver felt tho force of her re
mark. Ho was hurt nnd angry. At
lenst they might havo sent him word.
De Kestaud found his missing servant
on tho chain gang after two days' in
carceration in tho city bastile. Tho
master blustered a good deal, but fin
ally yielded to reason; certainly thero
was a law against a man's Wing a
walking arsenal. Oliver, conscious Hint
threatened men live long, went calmly
aWut his business, often meeting Do
Kestaud, but neither spoke.
Dr. John frequently discussed the
whereabouts of tho "Troublesome
lady," as ho always called her, but
Oliver seldom spoke of hor. If, how
ever, n Huffy Slcyo terrier ran up tc
him in tho street, lip would look uround
eagtjrly, and sometimes a wove ol
color would flood his face, while hit
heart qutokeued. If something had

or prise, or at a lower price than tho Eoyal,

Certain protection from alum baking powders can
be had by declining to accept any substitute for the
Royal, which is absolutely pure.
