" Arent you a little more attentive

asked Margaret Fenton of her brother.
" Probably," he answered ; " but not
more attentive than I find it agreeable,
sister mine "

"1 believe, Margaret, the ditler3neo
between the Geralds and ourselves Is
simply a question of money. Mother,
was it not yourself who asked me to
employ Miss Gerald."
" Yes, Donald ; her father and yours
were college chums; your father chose
a mercantile life and made money;
Mr. Gerald entered the ministry ; he
and his wife are educated, retined peo.

I am glad you could show your fattner's
friend a favor by finding employment
for his daughter. Perhaps we should
have had her at the house oftoner."
"I think Donald has done the honors
for the family quite generously, mam

" Gladly ; I shall be as attentive to
your friends as I desire you to be to

" Margaret, don't say any more

way to drive Donald to propose to her.
Let him alone. I will trust his judg
" A man in lova has no judgment,"
replied the daughter. Then added,
under her breath, " There are ways of

The typewriter and cilice boy were

Miss Gerald leaned her head on her
desk. Shame and anger filled her
heart. Anger that Mr. Fenton should
(iare tiflas with her when his heart
was another's. True, lie had not
spoken his love, but he had expressed
it in many ways ; shame, thbat sue had
not realized the diffoi once in their
several posItions, but had accepted all
as a girl would the advance of true love.
She could never look bim in the face
again, she concluded.
A cough from Tim, the cifice boy,
roused her. She had forgotten him.
" I say, Miss Gerald," said Tim soft
ly, ' yer know I'm yer true frien' after
wet you done fur ma an' me when she
was sick, an' I w ish you wouldn't mind
and wouldn't look so white an' scarry."
"I'm sIck, that is all."
"1I wouldn't care," ho said.
"Tim, when Mr. Danton returns tell
him I was taken ill and went home.
Here is a half-dollar ; please don't tell
him anything you heard. If you are
my friend Tim, you won't," and she left
"Now," mused Tim, "this is excit
ing:; jest like the plays on the stage. I
allers wanted to be a hero in one, an'
now's my chance. H~ow'lL I do it ? I
can't Jose my job by mindin' other folk's
He delivered Miss Gerald's message,
but no surprise was expressed.
" 'Tain't no stage play after all ; he's
too tame," he muttered.
The following day Donald received a
letter from Miss Gerald saying che
would not return to her position. He
re-iread the letter; intuitively he seem
ed to know something was wrong.
" Tim, was Miss Gerald very ill yes
terday afternoon ?"
"Now the plot's beginning ; stage

" She was all right till your sister
come, an' after that she was pretty
' After my sister came in ?"
" Yes, sir, she come in and being as
you warn't here, she sot an' rested an'

Fenton turned to the window with a
puzzled look, then faced the boy.
" Tim, did you hear what my sister
said yesterday ?"
" Yes, sir," replied the lad, his face
aglow ; "I hoerd the hull on it. Your
sister didn't see me, but I was here all
" What did she say ?"
" Now, boss, I can't tell yor ; I'm

K"I will give you these two silver dol

Tim held the dollars in his hand.

" Honor bright."

quite a noise in the world thirty and w
forty years ago, but was never a sue- di

swore olf from It. He dielarod that man h
was a fraud, a hypocrite and woman t
was weak and helpless and that little
children were the only happy and un- g
contaminated creatures In this wicked qu
world and the only acciety he shouldn
mingle with as long as he livcd. It has
now been about twenty-five years since y
he swore off and from that time his "i
daily habit has been to visit some park O
in New York every day and take a Mij
busket of confections or fruits and all
his pockets full and make headquarters g
on the same park bench and gather a
around him a score or two of little if
folks and feed them and play with
them and listen to them as they laugh, go
and romp and frolic. They all know
him and love him and irun to him when -
he comes like little chicks run to the cia
old hen's call. 1 saw him once and drew Cu
near with a friend to hear what he was tai
telling the children, but ho spied us whi

away to another seat and the children wb

heard him make an outdoor speech at en
Rlochester to a very large audience and .
he advocated the policy of the govern- no,
ment issuing ten thousand millions of wo
money so that every man could have da
his pockets full and every woman her at

to issue it and has the presses to print

away to the people and make every body
happy." Just then a countryman cried
out : " But hold on Train, wouldent

Train looked at hIm with contempt as
he replied: " Why, of course there U
would. Any fool would know that, but

VtIC DARK AN D BLOODY GROUND
I. ntucky's History Has Been Iver
Marked by Exciting Political
Kentucky was early called " the
dark and bloody ground," because of
the sanguinary strifes enacted within
its borders between contending tribes
of savages, and has ever retained the
characteristics and traits then do
veloped to a intrked degree. From
the political turoulence which pre
coded and followed Its advent into the
Union as a State, down to the present
revolutionary proceedings now being
enacted at its State Capital, Kentucky
is nothing if not radical. Tuis spirit
le, no doubt, due to the tifluence and
training of the pioneer settlers, whose
circumastances and surroundings made
them a race seldom equailed for
strength and intullect and will, physi
cal and moral courage, personal prow
ess and endurance. Many of the
most intelletual and cultivated olicers
of the Revolution settled in Kentucky
at the ciot.e of the war in 1781, and it.
is a matter of history that never did a
population so small in numbers em
brace so many who were giants in in
tellect, daring and physical propor
Kentucky's tiret civil existence be
gan in the spring of 1783, when it was
erected Into a diotrilct with a Court oi
criminal and civl jurisdiction. At
that time the territory was a nart of
Virginia. The failure of the E iglish
to surrender their Norihwester-n fposts
within the United States instigated
constant Indian hostiiitk-es, and the
citizens of Kentucky sought a separa
tion from Virginia, in order that they
might lawfully plrotect themselves
from the savages. Proecedings were
begun to tecurio constit utional separai
tion. Virginia aLcquiesded, provided
that Congress woulu assent and receive
the now State into the Union. But
two circumstances about tnis time oc
curred to create great hostility in Ken
tucky againut te General Gove-ra
ment. One was the utter inability of
Congress to protect them from the de
predations of the Indians, and the
other was the dispositIon of an element
in Congress to yield to Spain for t went~y
years the right to navigate the Missis
sip~pi River in exchange for commer
cial privileges beneficial only to the
Easteorn States. This aroused intense
dIssatisfaction in Kentucky, and Gen.
James Wikinson, a Revolutionar-y
officer, who had settled in Laxington,
boldly advocated rebellion and separa
tion from the Union. ils movement,,
however, did not gain any consider
able following. T1his was in 1786.
For four years the hgitation for a
separate State progressed. Gen. WiI
kinson continued to be a revolutionary
factor and advocated an independont,
government, which, he said, Spain
would recognize and cede to it the
right of navigatIon of the Mississippi.
Agents from Canada also intrigued
with the malcontents, urging Kentucky
to unite with tihe northern 10nglish
provinces. In the meantime Gen.
Washington was elected Prusident,,
and strongly recommended the accept,
ance of the Virginia Act of Separa
tion by Congress. On February 4,
1791, an Act for that purpose passeo
both houses of Congress, was signed by
President Washington and Kentucky
became a State.
In Ddcember, 1791, a Constitutional
Convention was elected, which met in
the following April and formed the
first Constitution of Kentucky. The
basis of representation by counties was
~tbandoned and nunmbers established
Instead. The 10xecutive, S-mate and
judiciary were enitir ly removedl from
1,he direct control of the people. Tne
Governor and members of the Senate
were chosen by electors elected by the
people, and the judiciary were ap
pointed. The Constitution was adopted
and otlietra' elected in May, 179)2. isaac
shelby was elected the first, Governaor.
rhe first Legislature met iat Ltxing
ion and fixed upon the future seat of
government by a singular process.
lwenty-five commissioners weire irtt
,hosen by general ballot. Trhen the
younties of Mercer and Fayette, the
rival competitors for the location, al
tornatoly struck live names from the
ist, until the commisbioners were re
luced to five. These last, were empfow -
3red to fix upon the Capital, and Frahk
