Vou eco, I lmtl tubotcnloso dlscajo of tho
lungs, anil to they wanted mo to go to Now
Mexico, eomowheio on tho plateau.
"Tako your wlfo ami baby along!" ox
clalracil Dr. Sumner: "Never! why, tho
poor llttlo tlitnK Isn't six weeks old, I
couldn't think of permitting you to expose
its frail existence to tho rigors of a winter
on tho New Mexican plateau. It wouldn't
livo n month. And as for your wife, she's
got enough to do to tako raro of liorsolf and
tho taby, in comfort nud at lelsuro, with
out having to nur:o you nud cmluro hard
ships Into tho bargain."
All tli! was spoken rapidly and beforo I
could inlcrpoio a word. I involuntarily
lifted my hand ns if in remonstrance, Imt I
let It dtop again, and silently admitted tho
foico of tho argument.
"You must leavo her with her mothor or
with yours until shots ready to follow you. '
said Dr. McCrcady.
Anl to Kwa:. My poor llttlo ulfe, It
nearly broke her heart. Hut it couldn't bo
bclpcd. Within a week I was ready. Tho
good-by was awful.
That Is bow I came to go to Now Moxlco.
Time huug heavily on my bands, and be
tween reading stories In tho uowspapcrs and
writing melancholy lcttcis to my wife I
lust managed to cscaro committing eulcldo.
A position was promised mo with n promi
nent tlticn of I, as A'cgas, who needed tho
services of ono Just llko me, but ho was out
of lowu, and wouldn't lo back for soveial
weeks. 1 had this timo to kill.
Idleness Is n had thing for any man, nnd
acquaintances aro mado In splto of onosolf.
I was at lelsuro to roako tho acquaintance
of n young fellow a few years my senior,
ono Tony Scott, lalo of Chicago, but now
on tho road for a New England mcrcantlla
house. Circumstances compelled him to lay
over In Las Yegas for a couplo of wcoks.
Ho was a flno fellow, as tho saying goes, h
perfect gentleman, with a thorough knowl
edgo (if tho world nnd a sociable companion
par excellence He did mo tho honor to
conic to my room, smoko my cigars, drink
my liquor and win n V or an X of mo, now
and then, at various llttlo games. I took a
sort of liking to him, aud ho did to mo, for
known lessons, and so wo becamo moro or
lets intitnato after n while. t any rate
ho knew all about my coming to Now Mex
ico; what I know of him doesn't matter.
I only dragged In tho mention to glvo
you to understand how wo spent many an
hour together betweou tho drinking, smok
ing and playing. Ho did tho smoking my
physicians told mo I might smoko any day
I was ready to put an end to my oxlstonco.
Tony was immensely plciscd with tho
portrait of my wlfo I carried about with
mo. He. blmsolf, was a bacholor. At first
I was nattered by his compllmonts to hor
"beauty and intellectuality;" but as ho
brought tho subject up almost ovcry time
ho tame, I began to feel annoyed about It.
"When Is sho coming on to join you?" ho
asked mo ono day.
' 'I'on my word I don't know," I ro
"I don't sco hoiv you can get along with
"Well, I can't vory welt ; but then a fel
low must makonn his mind to a great many
things." And J heaved a deep sigh.
"If I were as sick a man as you wore, I'd
havo my wlfo with mo to nttrso me, you can
bet," ho went on.
I poured out a finger of "bluo grass" and
gulped It down. I didn't havo a word to
say for myself. I wanted to havo tbo sub
ject changed. I was about to attompt to
effect this when Tony asked, with quick
"Havo you written her of your Ills?''
I had, but I didn't say so. I shook my
t'Noblo fellow I" exclaimed Tony.
I bit my lip. Ho smiled Ironically.
"If I wcro your wlfo nnd know you to
Ho down hero sick among strangers, I'd
como on by tho next train and throw all
secondary considerations to tho dovil," ho
I nroso from my scat impatlontly and
If it Is going to glvo you any satisfaction
to know it," I said sullenly, "thou let mo4
tell you that I'm afraid sbo'a on tho way
hero now, but I do sincerely Iiopo sho isn't,
for sho would go to pieces In this hole In
Tho weeks went by and I obtainod my
position. I was so well satisfied with tho
salary, and I felt so far Improved in health
that I wroto my wlfo to pack up and como
I hadn't soon Tony Scott for somo timo,
and ho had quito escaped ray memory.
I had not thought but that my cherished
darling was comintr on, nnd would bo
hero soon. Everything was in readiness
for tho rccoptlon.
Tlvo days passed by, and thon thcro
was placed in my hands it telegram. I
toro tbo envelope open with an eager
"Sho has telegraphed mo, Immediately
on receipt of my lotter, that sho Is com
ing at once," 1 soliloquized, smiling all
over my face.
A passer-by gavo mo n startled look, I
must havo turned ns whlto as a sheet.
Tho dispatch was from my mpthor, aud
"Your letter a mystery. Kmmy has
left hero two weeks ago. Answer imme
diately." A stronger and a wcakor pen than mluo
would havo attempted to analyse my feel
ings, but mlno must bo spared tho task. I
only wonder that I didn't go mad on tho
spot. My soboi reason abandoned tho at
tempt to solvo tho mystory, but my heart
instinctively pointed out an Irnaglnary tell
tale finger at Tony Scott I Men havo fallen
in lovo with portraits beforo to-day ; they
havo been villains, schemers, abductors aud
seducers boforo to-day, and I had been jeal
ous ot bis admiration of my wlfo's portrait
I ran to tho railroad depot at once and
asked everybody employed thero moro
questions than thoy could havo answered
under any circumstances ; hut I didn't get
tho least satisfaction out of any ol them, or
stumblo upon tho smallest clue. AH I could
learn was that Tony Scott had gono Itat
about ten days ago. Tho . tlckot-seller
thought ho had sold him n ticket to Kansas
City, but ho wasn't euro.
On tho wings of tho wind I hastened to
my employer, told him my pitiful story,
and begged him for leavo of absence. Tho
request was of courso grantod Immediately.
I throw my vallso full of things and de
parted for Kansas City ntonce, barely catch
ing tbotraln. I thought my path lay twlco
acrcss tbo equator, so long it scorned. I
novcr saw a train crawl so much In all my
llfo before. 1 had arrived at tho central
metropolis of tho United States moro doad
than alive, and ran at onco to tho ticket
olUco both of tho road and of tho Pullman
"On what night did a young lady with a
llttlo baby arrlvo via Jtock Island, and tako

"Wo havo them ovory night," I was told.
"This one woro a black satin cloak,
trimmed with fur.''
"Dark oomploxioncd, bluo oyos "
"Yes, yes; I remember now. Thoro was
EOtno trouble about tho baggsgo, thoro was
so much of It. Aud, como to think about
it, I paid her iO.bO rebate orr hor ticket
"Have you tho receipt?"
"I presented thp request with a green
back and trembling limbs,"
"Walt a moment."
A minuto of breathless expectation
passed, and thon I was shown tho robato
certificate with my wlfo's signature on tho
back of it, "llmmy Ocrncr." Tho dato was
two weeks back.
"Did sho go on at onco to Las Yoga) ?"
"Sho wanted to, I bsllovo, but looked so
pale and sick that her companion advised
"Companion "' I fairly shouted.
"Yts, n young gentleman."
I tattled off n description of Tony Scott
"'1 hat's tho man,"
"Ah ! I'or God's mko man, (oil mo, did
they go on, or aro they In town hero yot."
"They went on together last night "
"To Las Yegas?"
"Dxactly. Ho wanted to nay lor hor
ticket, but sho declined posltivoly."
I tottered av,ay. At tho ticket ollico of
tho I'ullman Company I ascertained that
tccllon No. ()of tho palaco-slecper tluay
mas had been let to a young lady Willi a
baby, lower, and a gentleman, who was
evidently accompanying hor, ujipor.
I went to tho Coates Houso, whoro T or

That tamo night I was on my way back
lo Las Yegas, torn with conflicting emotion.
Why didn't sho manage to telegraph me
Tho villlan Intercepted them !
Within forty endless hours I was back at
tho dcrol In Las Yegas. Hud a young lady
with n baby and a pllo of baggago arrived
ycstciday? I was answered In thonlllrma
tlvoun all sides.
"And was Mr. Scott with her?" I asked
of one who know Scott well.
"Yes, sir, ho was."
"Whcro where did thoy go to?"
"Ditnno. They bad a carrlago and drovo
nwny Into tho old towu, I suppose."
If thoy had had a bar at tho depot I'd
havo treated that fellow to a drink. He got
a cigar Instead. I jumped Into n streetcar
and hastened to my lodgings.
To my amazement, I found tho door of
my room unlocked. I pushed It opon. Tho
scene that met my eyes was: My wlfo was
sitting on n rocker by tbo fire, singing softly
to the baby, with a happy smllo on her
faco; Tony Scott standing by tho window,
clamly smoking ono of my clgais and chat
ting merrily with my wlfo.
With a rovolurlnmy hand, I outcrcd
My wlfo started to hor feet, uttered a
glad cry, hastily placed tho baby on tbo bed
and lushed into my arms, Ono of my arms

I felt that thcro was a mistake some
where, nnd tossed tho revolver on tlrotablo,
whllo I kissed my sobbing wlfo, I tried to
say something, but, for want of knowing
what to say, 1 said nothing.
"What took you to Kansas City in such a

In reply I tossed my mother's tologram

All visitors to tho Exposition should call
at tho Department of South Carolina and
look at this Interesting relic of tho old hero
of New Orleans.
In 1810 tho ladies ot South Carolina pro
tented to General Jackson a magnificent
vaso of silver weighing 000 ounces, and In
scribed appropriately. In acknowledgment
of tho obligations of the sex to tho hero who
had saved theli slstors of Now Orleans from
tbo grasp of l'oekcnbam'a soldiery, who had

When Jackson mado his will ho be
queathed this vaso to bis executor, Androw

Bbould distinguish himself by the groatost
bravery In tho next foreign war.
Mr. Don nelson concluded that tho bravost
man would bo found In tbo Palmetto rogl

tho palm of heroism In tho Mexican war,
and ho tent tho Jackson vaso to Governor
Alston of South Carolina, to bo awardod to
tho bravest man of thatrcgimont.
Tho Governor, unablo to distinguish
among this Spartan band, presented and
conveyed It to William II. Stanloy, Presi

successors in of lice.
Captain Stanley took it to tho Exposi
tion, to tbo meeting of tho Moxlcau Yot
crans, and left It with tho South Carolina
Department, to bo gazed ou and admired
by ail Who rcvorenco hcroie patriotism.
