To liavo company for dinner always throw our family into a Btnto of confu sion, because tlicro was liovor anything on hnnd to feed them with, compelling Us to resort to the most peculiar methods to find food. I was settlfnc down to wrlto n story ouo day, when llfllo Minn "burst In upon mo with tho Information that papa bad-brought homo a Rcntlomnn to-dlnnor and Unit thero was tho usual absence of nnvihlnjr. In the family larder. , '"'I. wish papa's' friends would occasion ally cat at homo," 1 cried, dashing down my pen in disgust. "Oh, Perry," sho said, warnincly. "IIo will hear you. Tho study window is open." "I wish ho would," I cried, pettishly. ''But then, something must bo done. Are thero no bits of meat In tho housio wo-can stow or-mako a pie of V "Not a bono even. The boys cleaned up everything this morning." ""Well," Isald; "there's nothing to do but sacrifice tho pleeous." "What! Jack's pigporis!" cried Flossy, who had entered during iho discussion, aud now stood regardln mo In bonified silence. "IIo gave them to you as a parting gift. Oh.'Pcrryl" "Yes, Jack's pigeon's must go. Ne cessity demands it. I may bo driven to broil llttlo Jlina hero If a detachment of company should happen to arrive." This bold assertion throw us nil three into n 'lit of giggling which terminated only with tliu. necessity for immediate exertions. "Jlina ran 6'lfto pull radishes nnll pick peas. Flossy began to mix biscuit on tho snowy moulding board, and I'lvdht out 'and' commissioned "the littlo Irfsli boy who lived -at tho foot of the lano to catch nnd kill tho ten white pigeons that lived In tho barn loft. "Thov afo voryvgcntlo," I said. "You won't h'avo'inueu trouble." And I cried a littlo, undor my sun, bonnet, as T returned, for Jack Willis had given mo the. littlo White pigeons scarcely -a year two. "Hut ho don't deserve half a quarter of n tear,"' cried J. dnshjng tho moisturo out of my eyes when I camo up tho lane. "IIo hasn't written to me for three months 1 "Why should I bo sentimental about his pigeons"?" Papa was' a learned professor in a half starved country institution in Canada, which culled1 Itself "Thea'alllncton Uni versity," aud his scientific wisdom al ways Hooded our houso with equally Jenrncd company. And the wiser wo grew, apparently, tho poorer wo became. Slftmma. who had been a Quebec lady, was In delicato health and quite un equal to mauaglng tho housekeeping be low, bo that all tho responsibility camo on Flossy and mo, and wo had solemnly interpleaded dach other never-never, Mover to marry ii professor, or a scientific knan, or u Irian "wh'o'Was "poor. "Por wo'vo seen enough of gontccl Starvation," satd 1. "Quito cnoiigh," said Flossy. Well, after all, tho tablo didn't look so bad when tho clock struck ono. A lit tle, well-preserved qld'damask, a few of iho silver forks ana spoons that had Leon tho bequost of Grandmamma Har per, and a'bunch bf jacqueminot roses, Arranged in a cloud of feathery ferns, went Jar to redeem other shortcomings. IHossy's biscuits, -as usual, Wore per fection, and sho had mado n delicious npplo pudding, while my nigeon-plo was ccrtriinly a 'triumph in.tho culinary lino, though I, tlio cook, had, perhaps, no fight to mako tho assertion. But I felt that I could no muster courago to carvo the plo that beld"Jaok's pigeons. "No," crlod I, hysterically. "I can't doitl I can't!" "Perryj don't bo so foolish," pleaded Flossy. "I couldn't cat 'em," said J. "I know I should burst out crying if any Ono elso ttld," "But who is to tako tho head of tho table?" said Flossy, ''with mamma 111." "Youl" cried I. "I couldn't sltthero, not if tho govornor-goncral of Canada Was there, with all his staff' And just as tho footstops of tho gen tlemen woro heard emerging from papa's study J flow put.to tho bench under tlio old applo tree, close bcsldo tho well pweep, aud began to cry bitterly. Here was moral courago fdr'you! Hero was a flrst-'class hcrotnol But as I cried and'sobbod llko tho silli est school girl in all -the Dominion of Canada, a sound more doflnlto thnu the wind In ,tho apple boughs struck on my car tho sound of advancing feet i and a lion1! fell lightly on my arm. "Perry, my darling girl, spoke a Boothing voico, "what are you crying for? Flossy says it is about those misera ble pigeons. In themselves thoy are nothing, but If It is bocauso they nro mv clft " I started up with tho curious sensation of being in a dieam. But it was no dream. It was Jack tho ieal living nnd breathing Jack that stood before mo. "Jack!" was all that I could stammer. "Oh, Jack, I I thought you had'for gotten mo!" "My darling! my own Terry!,' was all that ho said. But that was enough. For Jack had beon tho company, after nil my true lover, Jack, who had re ceived an appointment to go out to Van Dlcmen's land colony as resident consul, and bad come directly to tc)l me tho news and ask If I coulH get ready to marry him and go out there with him. If, Indeed! "Jl wanted to go to you at once," said Jack, "but your fatner kept mo talking until the dinner bell ran. IIo gives his consent, Perry although ho "says ho don't know what ho shall do When you aro gone, But wo nro to havo n snug salary, pot, and tho rosldonco is a fine stone mannlou, and we can always have cither Fluhsy-orlliiia staying with us, Aud now' let o go back and eat tho pigeon plo, darling." But I was a grout deal too happy to cut. I made a jiroictmo of nibbling at tlio biscuits mid drinking a littlo milk, but 11 was quite enough to see Jack de vour the pi'W pigeons.

Tlio olllcers havb been at tho Calt Houso until Monday, whon thoy made n Hying trip to Nqogn, Cumberland County, 111. As n Tcsult of their visit hero and thu publication ot this story, the arrest of two coin counter feiters In Neogn will bo precipitated and the business of a coin dealer In this city whoso name is not divulged, will bo bi'okcu up. 'During the last deendo tho love of nu mismatics has snread rantdlv In this country, and many thousands of dollars of capital aio tied up in collections of coins by numismatists. Thero aro ot least ;iu vaiuauio collections oi coins oi raro mintage In thla country, and theto aro tit least 10,000 people who havo smnll Collections nnd tako n lively interest in tho tracing up and finding of raro coins. Mr. J. B. II. Kolloy, manager of Louis ville Hotel, has a very remarkable col lection, second to but few In tho United States. All of these coin collectors arc members of tho Numismatists' Associa tion, under tho auspicios of which attc tidn sales "ai'c'hcld rttul by whom rare coins are registered with as much red tape as the birth of a valuable foal or tlio dropping ot a blue-bloodod Holstclu. A llAnc COIN I'ltOVKS A COUMTEnl'IUT, About six months ago, in tho city of Philadelphia, an auction salo of Ameri can coins, the collection of Mr. Hamilton Dlsston, a wealthy saw manufacturer was. extensively advorlised, nnd upon tho specified date tho salo was largely at tended by numismatists from various sections of tho country. Tho prizo of his collection was a silver dollar of 1601, during which year but six wero turned out' from tho United States mints. Tho quoted valuo of this coin is $500, but collectors rati it up much beyond this price. For Mr. Dlsston's 1801 dollar tho blddiiic was snirltcd. and it was finally sold to a" Wealthy Philadelphia collector for $1,100. Beforo paying for tho coin the purchaser took It over to tho branch United States Mint at Philadelphia and had it oxnniiticd by tho Government ex perts. After tho uso of sundry ucids tlio dollar was put under a powerful micro scopo and was discovered to bo a counter feit. A dollar of 1808 which is quito common hnd been used by tho counter feiters. Tlio figure eight had been punched out and tho holo was plugged with a four, which 4 made a very clever Imitation, of tho 1801 dollar. KUMIS5IATISTS ALAUME1). "When this' fact became known to the Numlsmalists' Association It t'aused much alarm, and circulars wero sent out to all tho members in this country. As a ro wilt it wos learned that ciglity-threo members 'of the association beliovcd "theinsclyqft tp bo possessors of these six valuablo 1?04 dollars. A mooting of the association was hold, and Detectivo Wal laco was employed to work ud' tho couuiv forfeiting. Tho Unltod Stales Secrot Service also put Captain Hall on tho caso, and together tho two detectives havo been workinc hard for thieo months. Thoy discovered that tlicro wero several distributing or central offices for tho dis tribution of this spurious coin of a ficti tious valuo in this part of tho country, and tho detectives aro convinced ono of them is located in this city. They will not divulgo tho name or tho address of tho bogus coin dealer, but say he has cither been knowingly putting out tho counterfeits or has been imposed upon by tho counterfeiters. Tho olllcers worked hard on tho caso, but wero un ablo to get a tangible cluo until last weok. SnADOWINO Dll. JtASON. In tho Indiana Stato Prison North at Michigan City, Peto McCarthy, ono of the most famous of tho latter-day coun orfelters, is serving timo for his work, which has been vfiry oxtensivo. IIo has operated In nearly every Stato in tho .North and West, and his photograph oc cupies the promtnont position in tlio roguo s gallery album ot every ouicer in tho employ of tho Government. Mc' Carthv's wifo Is a flash charactor, and tho police havo alwnys been watching her, nlthough nothing directly could over bo brought homo'to her. Sho Is living at liornomoin-JMeoga, ill., witn a cnar actor known as "Dr. Mason,'' who has usurped tho husband's place in tho woman's homo, although slio and hor Im prisoned husband are on tho host of terms. "Dr. Mason" Is supposed by tho odl cers to bo a swell cracksman and counter feiter, who has been a naitner of Mc Carthy. In opening McCarthy's corre spondence last week tho prison olllclals discovered a dollar boaring tho dato of 1801 in a .letter, wilttcn to hlra by his wifo from Nedga. A Government ox part was prcsont nt the time, and, aftor examining tho 1801 dollar.ho pronounced it a very dangejous counterfeit. Shadows woro sent to Ncoga and woro put on tlio Doctor and his mistress, who occupied a rickety, tumble-down cabin on tho outskirts of the llttlo town. While tho couplo wero awny from homo tho of ficers broko into tho cabin, nnd in thu loft discovered n complete kit of counter feiting tools. A number of genuine dies, ovidontly obtained through the collusion or some oinpioyo or tno Mint at rniiauct phla, woro also there. There was a com plete outfit of plaster of Paris molds and all tho necessary acids. Ouo counterfeit dio of the 1801 dollar was also found. Tho doteotlves reported their discovery to Captain Hall and woro ordered to mako no nrrests. Captain Hall camo hero to work up this end of tho lino, but prob ably he is convinced that tho dealer here is not in collusion with tho counterfeiters, as he has not been put under arrest. Mason and Mrs. McCarthy aro still undor survoillanco nt Neoga, and their Instnnt arrest will probably now bo or dered., Mr. John S. Boll, Olilof of tho United States Secret Service at Washing ton, readied tho city yesterday mornlmt and is at tho Louisvlllo Hotel. Ho claims that ho Is hero on no business, but it is not improvable mat lie is Hero In connection with this counterfeiting. Tho warden of tho Mlolilgnu City Prison was also in tlio city during tho past wook on no ostenslblo business, and it is al most a certainty that something Is lu tho wind which may lead to tho flushing of tho biggest gang of countefeitors over opointlng in tills section of the country.
