"I rather like it," answered Brinkley. "It:

How Monk's forehead darkened! But hisI

"No?" said Brinkley, dryly. "They used to

"Why fifteen years ago especially?"
The young man shrugged his shoulders.
"I was told only to-day of the loss of one

"I know whom you mean. Excuse me,

"Issuppose I am," replied the young man.
'Matt and I are excellent friends."
.Monk did not smile now; all his efforts to
looso were ineffectual. With an expression

"I never shoot anything," was the reply,

'I haven't the slightest idea!"
"Well, good-day," said Monk, with an un
asy scowl. "If I can be of any service to

And, raising his batagain, hestalked away.
"Now, what in the name of all that is
onderful, does Mr. lank, of -Monkshurst,
nean by becoming so civil?"
This was the question the young man asked
dmsef as he strolled away seaward. He
xuld not persuade himself that he had
rounged Monk, who was in ieality an ami
Mble person, instead of a domineering bully;
to, that suggestion was contradicted by
very expression of the man's baleful and
uspicious face. What, then, could be the

WVASHINGTON LETTER.
From our Regular Correspondent.
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 20,'85.
Evidences accumulate daily that a
n4w and better governmental era has
dawned upon the country, and that
the hope for a purer and more busi
ness-like administration which ex- I
pressed itself in the election of Cleve- t
land will not be dissappointed. s
Itis a safe to say that it has been a
a long time since the laws were so q
thoroughly studied and so honestly
enforced as they now are, while the s
present generation sees for the first t
time-a .sineere. endeavor to cheek a
extravagance and the willful waste ti
of the people's money. o
The Government receipts and ex- c
penditures for the month of June G
1884, and 1885, are significant as w
showing how far administrative re- c
form affects the balances. For the Si
month of June 1885, the receipts ri
were $27,157,015.55: June 1884, tr
$26,932,088.30: expenses for June w
1885, ..$15,255,658.11, June 1884, a
$16,116;13.90. The increase of w
receipts can largely be placed le
to th'e increased vigilance of the of
custom service, uifder the spur pi
of the new administration, in preven
ting frauds in undervaluation. The -ai
redaction in expenditures of over si
eight hundred .thousand dollars is hi
ahe immediate result ,of the initial li
passage of the Jacksonian broom of m
retrenchment and reform through the di
Federal service. ti
The claim made by the Demo- 0
crats in recent canvasses that it was H
high time to have a look at the:books ri
has been abundantly sustained. In fr
every department, and in almost c
every bureau of the Government ir- in
regularities are coming to light. ci
Secretary Manning is overhauling H
the Internal Revenue Ikureau, reor- a]
ganizing the Bureau of Engraving fi
and Printing and reducing this chari- al
ty hospital to business principles, w
and -he is breaking up the ring which b'
has filched the fifty millions or so rt
from the Treasury department by ti
undervaluing their importations. The h
eultural department has- been a
with' results disastrous to b
the reputations of mealy mouthed x
Loring, and his subordinates. The p
laud grabbers -have been checked, ti
and on every hand evidences of pl
recklessness, and extravagance are f
coming to light. The last bureau to sl
be heard from is Coast Survey, the st
accounts of which are under suspi- b'
cion and investigation by the Audi- hi
tor. The wholesome feeling now is se
that all these investigations will be b<
honest ones; that the innocent will m
be vindicated, while the guilty will at
not be whitewashed. For such is w
Democratic reform.
Since the reorganization of the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing gi
over two,hundred persons-have been
dischyged wthout their loss bemng in
felt either thquality oiNluantity ci
offte-work donie, adid ait a saving of p~
over $100,000, per annum. How can B,
thia be? .The explanation is easy. 01
Congress places in the hands of the
chief of the bur,eau nearly a million o1
of dollars annually, with absolutely
no restrictions. The bureau was ii
filled with clerks many of whom si
were assisting the others to do
nothing. Fifty or more were dis- ti
clIarged, and $50,000,- was saved at Ii
one swoop. One matron and nine' i
assistants were employed to protect wi
from theft the clothes in the dress te
ing room of the female assistants si
to the printers. These ten people ti
read and gossiped all day, and drew ti
their salaries on the first of the t4
month. Now two women pass si
occasionally through the dressing sa
room and the same result is attained. si
Eight lazy colored men sat en a si
bench in the corridor. Now only i
one is left to tell the tale. The it
Treasury Department corridors also it
were thronged with idle messengers, v
so much so, in fact, that it became a
subject of complaint to the Secretary.
Now the efficiency of a few is in
cressed by the discharge of~ many.
The new administration is a little p
raw as yet, has not got its hand in, p
but in the inital work of four months a
there is promise for the forty and t
four to follow.p

"You seem to know this place well?" said
the young man, standing over him.
William Jones replied, without looking up:
"I ought to; I were bom here. Father
were born here. Know it? I wish I- know'd
as well how to make my own fortin'."
"And yet they tell me," observed the other,
watching him slyly, "that William Jones of
Aberglyn has money in the bank, and is a
rich man!"
He saw William's color change at once; but
recovering himself at once, the worthy gave
a contemptuous grunt, and aimed a stone
spitefully at a large gull which just then
floated slowly by."
"Who told you that?" he asked, glancing
quickly up, and then looking down again.
"Some tomfool, wi' no more sense in 'un than
that gulh Rich? I wish I was, I do!"
Brinkley was amused, and a little curious.
Laughing gayly, he threw himself down by
William's side. .Wiam_ shifted his

"My dear Mr. Jones," said the young man,
assunming the flippant style which Matt found
so irritating, "I have often wondered how
you get your living."
William started nervously.
"You are, I believe, a fisherman by pro
fession; yet you never go fshing. You pos
sess a boat; but.you are seldom seen to use it.
You are not, I think, of a poetical dispo
sition, yet you spend your days in watching
the water, like a poet, or a person in love.I
conclude, very reluctantly, that your old
habits stick to you, and thagyou speculate as
the disasters of your fellow-creatures."
"What d'yo' mean, master?" grunted WI

style of address.

Wlliam Jones could stand this no longer.
Looking as pale as it was possible for so rubi

him suspiciously, he rose to his feet.
"I Inow newt o' that," he said. "If there

So saying, he walked off in the directionof
tho deserted village. Presently Brinkley rose
and followed him, keeping him steadily in .
view. From time to time William, Jones
looked round, as if to see whether the other
ws coming; lingering when Brinkley
lingered, hastening his pace when Brinkley
hastened his. As an experiment, Brinkley
turned and began walking back toward the
cliffs. Glancing round over his shoulder, he
saw that William Jones had also turned, and
was walking back.
"Curious!" he reflected. "The innocent

running rather than walking, toward the
sandhills. So soon as he was certain that he
was followed he began to run in good ear

too. He plunged among the sandhlls, and
was soon engaged busily running up and
down them, hither and thither. From time
to time he caught a glimpse of his pursuer.
It was an exciting chase. When he had been
engaged in it for half an hour, and was
almost breathless himself, he suddenly paused
in one of the deep hollows, threw himself
down on his back, and lit, c igar. A kew

feebly down and mutbering incoherently,

to A beautiful girl, with large blue

hdressed, greatly interested a large
es crowd of gentlemen on one of the
o- East river ferry boats the other day

the well-known hymn, "Jesus, Lover
eof my Soul." As she concluded one

na -deck hand and crdered him to put
p. her out of the cabin, she looked
tv despairingly and burst into tears.
There were cries of "Throw him over
e-board,': "Let her alone," "Shame !"
er The large man, who looked like a
r-ailroad president, insisted ; said that
the deck band was doing his duty,
and that the ferry company had or
dered all nuisances suppressed. He
acknowledged that he had complained
s, of her.~ The murme~rs of -discontent
ou and- anger arose around him, at

"girl, said,
