Love's Victory. The clouds were massed in crimson glory in the west, and on them were fixed the large, beautiful eyes of Lady Florence Hammersley, who stood look ing from one of the many windows of her new home. It was the eve of her weduiug day, Scarce eight houl3 previously she had sworn to love, honor aud obey Hugh Hammersley, the wealthy manufactur er until death did them part. He it was who now occupied her thoughts, and shut out the splendid landscape, glinted with the glory of the dying day. Natural enough for the husband to fill heart and mind alike of his bride,yet a frown contracts the low, white brow, an ominous glitter shines in the wonderful gray eyes,and a scorn ful smile plays about the exquisitely curved lips, while the little hand,grasp ing the curtain, is tightly clenched. A sound breaks her revery. She qui etly turns, as the door of the room is softly opeued, and the figure of a tall, powerful man darkens the threshold. "You fiud all to your liking, Flor ence ?"he asks, and voice aud eyes alike are tender as he puts the ques tion. 14 A moment ago—yes," she replied. "I was alone." A shade darkened his face. "Aloue, Florence ? Is my presence really so distasteful to you ?" She shrugged her shouldrrs, and turned her face once more toward the open window. With one 9tride he had reached her side, and laid his hand upon her arm. "Answer me 1" he said ; and his tone was a command. "To-d*y you swore to make my happiness. I kuew that the daughter of one of England's proudest, if poorest, peei 9 would uot have stooped to the plebeian hand of the rich manufacturer's son,had it not been that the fortunes of ber house had sadly fallen ; I knew she was no hypocrite, to feign a love she did not feel. But I did not know she gave scorn for love, or hatred for courtesy. She was a woman, I a man. She bridged the social gulf between us when she became my wife. Florence, do you already regret the step ?" "Bitterly ! madly I" she cried, rais ing her eye 9 to his, and letting him see all the scorn and anger in their depths. "You say I was no hypocrite. I was, but I will be so no longer. You need not talk alone of my ambition. What of yours ? You had money, not rank, not social position. The latter I give you in exchange for your wealth. The bargain is an even one—let ns cry quits but let us have no talk of love or heart, or sentiment ; let us bury these ia a martial grave, and ou it uprear a mon ument of distant courtesy. Leave me my solitude, unless when the world de mauds it otherwise. I will uot intrude upon yours." The young man's face was of an al most ghastly pallor as she finished speaking. His hand dropped from ber arm. "Though I may boast no title, my lady," he said very slowly, "I claim nobility's truest rank—the rank of a gentleman, to whom the wishes of the woman he has made his wife are law. You have not spared me in expressing yours. Allow me to offer you my deepst sympathy for the cruel fate which tempted you to make the sacri fice on which the church this morning sets its zeal, and which I, for the first time appreciate. Happily, madam, the home to which I have biought you is not a cottage. When you wish for me, command me. Otherwise I beg you will consider your apartments your cas tle, at whose gates Hugh Hammersley will never knock, either as suppliant or iutruder. He bowed low as he ceased speaking and slowly reorossed the room. On its threshold he paused. Did he expect her to call him back, or at least to soft en her cruel words ? If so, he was wrong. His hesitation was scarcely pre ceptible. The door closed behind him —the young and beautiful woman was again alone. An expression of surprise, of almost admiration swept over her face, then the old scorn blazoned there. "At least he understands me now," she murmured, "but for a plebeian, ho did it well." Rank for money. It had been, a fair exchange, the world decreed ; and many a house, hitherto an unknown land to the young inheritor both of his father's fortune and the great work shops which covered acres of space in tha very heart of the great city, now welcomed him to its fetes and its tables. Fair women smiled upon him, and men who once would have turned their backs, listened to his opinion with at tention which grew into respect. If the young bride had expected to bs ashamed of her husband, the ex:pecta tion was destined to disappointment. Ou every Bide she heard his praise, and MILLHKIM, PA. THURS DA Y!*SEPTEMBER 11., 1884. the frown vanished from her brow and the scorn from her lip. Never did he fail iu courtesy toward her ; never did she express a wish left unfilled. A cheque-book, with blank cheques signed by his signature to be filled up as she wished, lay ou her toil et table. Hitherto her life had been one of almost penury, spite of her ex alted rank. A marrige <le convenance had beeu the sole resort loft hor and she had unhesitatingly availed herself of it. Her beauty unrivalled even with the old shabby setting, was now enhanced by exquisite toilets and priceless jewels. She had all that tier fondest dreams had pictured, yet day by day a restless, unsatisfied longing was gnawing at her heart, aud she looked about in yain for the unknown something which should satisfy it. Once, as she and her husband were driving home together from some bril liant fete, remembering some remarks concerning him which had reached her ear, she glanced toward him. "A wonderfully handsome man," a woman high in rank had said, and his wife was compelled to confirm the yer dict. "Hugh,are you not well ?" she said, and laid her gloved hand on bis arm. He shivered at her touch and drew himself hastily away. At that moment the carriage stop ped and the footman threw ;open the door. For the fist time ho permitted the man to assist his wife to alight, he following her up the stairs and disap pearing within his rooms. Sho mounted the steps slowly, and when within her own apartments stood stiM. "He has learned to hate me," she said to herself, "to hate me ! and I—" The rest of the sentence was left un finished. **** * * * * There was a great excitement in the town. The men belonging to Hugh Hammersley's factories had struck far higher wages, and he had refused their demand. It was a principle of right with him. lie was both just and generous in the prices paid them, and he determined Dot to be coerced into a step his judge ment told him was but the first toward proving that his workmen,not himself, might hold the mastery. The immense buildings were closed ; the heavy looms were still ; the drink ing-places throughout the city were constantly filled with groups of sullen men, who had already lost what the advance would gain them in a year. Days merged;in to weeks,and sullen ness found voice, and voice merged in to threats, and the threats directed themselves against one man, the mas ter of the works. "It's all very well for him to ride in his carriage while we starve," they said. "Let him look to himself. Hun gry men fire desperate." At last these threats.reached his ear. For the first time since that memorable day, almost a year before, he presented bim self at his wife's apartments. As a voice, in answer to his knock, bade him enter, he opened the door. By a strange coincidence she wa3 standing in the self-same spot, but a deep crimson flush mounted to her forehead, and betrayed her surprise at this most unlooked-for visit. She took a step forward to meet him,but paused. He was the calm self-possessed one of the two. • "I would apologize for my intru sion," he said, "but that when I make known its object you will understand its necessity. I hear this morning that the men are banding themselves into rioters. My house will be the first point of attack. I deem it best Jthat you send your jewels and valuables to the bank, and seek some place of safety with any of your friends whom you may prefer." 4 4 And you ?" "I shall remain here." "But there is danger." "True; but no man hitherto,l think, has suspected me of cowardice, and as my post is here, here I will remain. I shall take all measures for my safety, then meet what ever comes. In case of the worst—and doubtless at this PAPER FOR TUB HOME CIRCLE Cleveland and Hendricks, Democratic Candidates FOR PRESIDENT ANI) VICE PRESIDENT, juncture my life is threatened— I have left all ray affairs in shape, and need hardly assure you, madam, that my wife's future has been my first con cern." "Thanks," she murmured, and bent her head. lie could not see that glis tened on the lashes sweeping the lovely cheek. "I have thought of Lady Ripley," he continued. "She, lam sure, will be delighted to welcome you. Will you choose her house ?" "No." 44 Whose, then ?" "I shall remain here." "It is impossible." 44 And why ? Yon stay. A wife's place is beside her husband." lie smiled bitterly. "This is scarcely the time, madam,to remember your vows. Forget them, I pray you, in this,as in all else. I must insist upon your choosiug some other shelter." She shook her head. "1 cannot," she murmured in a voice so low that he could scarcely catch the words. "You cannot? Istheio somo rea son, then I do not know ?" "Perhaps, but one I cannot confess. Respect it, however, I beseech you,and let me remain." "I could scarcely hope, madam, to be esteemed worthy of your confidence, neither can I use force in compelling you to leave this house, but I must ex ercise a husband's rights in demanding your obedience. The danger is too oh - vious to permit you to share it." "Be it so, then. Within an hour my apartments will be vacant." "Shall I escort you to your friend's house ?" "No, I will go alone." She hesita ted a moment. "You will promise me not to run any unnecessary risk ?" "No man should trifle with his life it is Heaven's gift," he answered, and abruptly left her standiug with clasped hands aud heaving bosom. 4 4 What care he took to tell me why his life was precious !" she murmured. "Yet. do 1 not deserve it ?" Yes, but not that it should be taken from me. Oh, Heaven spare him ! spare him 1" And she fell, in bitter weeping, on her knees. It was midnight when the mob at tacked the house. There were loud cries for the master. "Let him speak to us, and we will listen !" they shouted. Within the barricaded windows Hugh Hammersley heard and under stood. He advanced toward one of the windows, and began unfastenlug the barriers. The foreman of the works hastily seized his arm. 44 You are mad I" he said, "I have despatched a messenger for assistance. Show yourself, and your life will not be worth a moment's ransom. It is a trick to make you show your self." "The master I the master 1" came the cry. "They are right," said Hugh. "They respect—they used to care for me. I will talk to them. If they kill me, a mau cannot die in a better cause than in doing his duty. My duty lies iu proving my cause right. Let me go-", But at this instant a dress rustled at the door. Hugh turned. His wife, pale and beautiful, stood upon the threshold of the room. Ere his surprise could find words, she was kneeling at his feet, her arms clasped about him. "My love ! my husband !" she cried. 4 4 You shall not go ! Despise me, hate me,as you will. I deserve it ail. But, oh, do not cast away the life without which mine could not exift I" He looked at her as in a dream, then motioned for the others to withdraw, before he lifted her from where she knelt. "How came you here ?" he ques tioned. "Poor child 1 the terror has turned your brain." "No, Hugh, no I I could, not leave you. I said that I would go, only that I might stay. I stayed because I love, you—because I have loved you from the very day I became your wife, though I scorned and refused to ac knowledge the passion which has mas tered me. I know that I may never hope to win that which I might once have won ; but let me know that you live—let me but see you, hear your yoice, and even though you hate me, yet I may glean some happiness." "Hate you I" he whispered, "My love, my wife I You have indeed made my life a precious boon. But listen, they are calling me, I must go." "Then I will go with yo," she re plied. As the fastenings fell at the touch of his hand, she stepped out on the bal cony by his side. A long, low murmur ran through the crowd below. No weapon, no armor could have piotected Hugh Hammersley as did the presence of that young,beau tiful woman, who stood with hands clasped about his arm. Silence fell as he spoke a few earnest words. Ere he had finished the tramp was heard of approaching soldiers, but they were not needed. The strike was ended. Calm had taken the place of passion and reason of anger. But far, far deeper than the external peace be tween master and men, was that which hud stolen into Hugh Hammesley's heart—the heart where lay pillowed the fair, haughty head, which like the rest less dove sent from the ark, had found at lust shelter and sweet rest. How Cleveland Receives. A Satisfactory Visit from John Boyle O'Reilly of the Boston Pilot. From the New York Herald. ALBANY, Sept. 2, —It requires con siderable patience and general equan imity of temper ou the part of Govern or Cleveland to attend to his official du ties and at the same time courteously receive the hundreds of visitors who daily call upon him. Such qualities he possesses to a marked degree. There Is no formality what ever about his re ceptions. The entrance to the main executive chamber remains open con tinually. Cards are handed in or out as the visitor pleases. When the visitor enters if the governor happens to be disengaged, he or she walks up to his desk and is received with a cordial shake of the hand. If the governor is conversing with other parties, then the latest arrivals advance in their turn. No exceptions whatever are made. The powerful politician, the million aire and the poor laborer stand upon the same footing as far as an interview with the coming president is concern ed. Your correspondent watched some of their interviews with interest. The governor does not practice the arts of the demagogue, paying more attention to the man with the soiled overalls than to the sumptvously attired politi cian. ne has the same genial, unstud ied welcome for all. This city is really fast becoming a Mecca for visitors. The rush continued to-day, several small excursion parties from the river counties and the interior of the state paying a visit "to the capital. course the principal feature is a call up on the governor,iu order to see him,and, if possible,to enjoy a few versation. Then the excursionists seek the nearest photographers.and,purchas ing a cabinet picture of the governor, return home, feeling highly elated. Among the late callers upon the gov ernor was Jolm Boyle O'Reilly, editor of the Boston Pilot , accompanied by his friend Mr. Sigourney Butler, of Quincy, Massachusetts. This was tlie first time Mr. O'Reilly had ever met Governor Cleyeland, and lie enjoyed an hour's conversation with him. The primary object of O'Reilly's visit was to inquire into the facts relative to the freedom of worship bill. The letter of Assemblyman Peter F. Murray recent ly published, explaining the nature of the bill and now it was defeated in the legislature, was commenced upon. Mr. O'Reilly expressed great satisfaction with the governor's statement of the case. Mr. O'Reilly further stated that there had been a great clyinge which \va,s highly favorable to Governor CI eve-, land within the last two weeks. It was noticeable, too, that public sentiment was rapidly concentrating all oyer the oountry upon the New York governor. Mr. O'Reilly, with his friend, left this evening for a few weeks' canoeing on the Susquehanna river. Terms, SI,OO per Year, in Advance. picKim Crops in lowa are said to be in a very line condition.

A letter from the City of Mexico says This] town, the scene ot many peculiar crimes, is just now agog over the performances of a thief, which are generally submitted to surpass anything on record. A few days ago several men went to the priest iu charge of the San ta Cruz Church in this city and asaed permission to hold fuueral services over the remains of a deceased friend at 4 o'clock the next morning. There was nothiug unusual in the request, for many people in this country bury their dead early in the morning before mass, and the priest gave his permission, a greeing to be present. The men then said they would like to leave the corpse in the church over night, and to this the clergyman also assented. Some time after dark the men appeared at the church bearing a colli u," which they car ried up the main isle and deposited in front of the) altar. They then with drew, promising to be there early the next morning. About midnight the sacristan was awakened by the barking of his dogs, and feeling that something must be wrong, he dressed hastily and .stepped from his room into the chancel. A dim light was burning near tiie altar, by means of which he could see a figure moving slowly on the other side of the chancel. Making up his mind that rob bers were in the church, he ran quickly to his room for a pistol, and then made a search of the church. No one was to be seen. On the altar he found every thing safe, but when he came to exam amine the images of the saints he soon saw that the costly jewels with which they had been ornamented were gone. He then redoubled his efforts to find the thief, but after half an hour passed in searching every nook of the great ed ifice, he was more mystified than ever, for he not only could not find the offen der, but he could discover no place where he could have come in or gone out. Just before he determined to give the alarm he thought of the corpse ly ing down below the chancel rail in the shadow, and the idea came to him that perhaps there might be something wrong about it. Lighting a candle, lie stepped soft'y to the bier and peeped in to the face of the supposed dead man. As be looked he noticed that the eye lids of the "corpse" twitched nervously under the light, and at the same in NO. 36.

Oyerjoyed at. finding the thief, the sacristan thrust his revolver into the face of the "corpse" and ordered him to get out. The cold steal on the man's forehead convinced him that the order must be obeyed, and a most extraordi nary resurectlon took place then and there. VV hen the man had gained his feet, the sacristan, still covering him with his pistol, gathered up the jewels, and then marched the culprit to the priest's house.where he was turned over to the police. Several soldiers were then stationed in the church, and when the thief's confederates arrived in the morning they were taken into custody. At first they denied all knowledge of the conspiracy but after a little while one of tlietn confessed and told the whole story. He said they intended to go through the forms of a funeral cere mony, and then carry their friend out to the cemetery, and, after letting him out of the coffin, bury it, and leave the country s speedily as possible. They will be severely punished. The True Meaning of O. O. D. A man who had not been long in this country was employed as a domestic in a family, and upon one occasion he was sent to the express office to obtain a package. He was about to leave with it when the clerk called his attention to the three letters CJ. O. D. Pat had no idea what the letters meant, but he cleverly guessed at them. "It's ail right," he said ; "theowld man's good for the money." "But do you know what these letters say, Pat ?" "Indade I]do. Call On Dad. It's as plain as me nose on your face." There is almost a pathetic truth in the understanding conveyed in this old story. Many a man is hounded to death by the unseasonable calls made upou him by the members of his family who are educated up to this very end by himself, at first in that fond, slavish spirit of indulgence which the Ameri can father displays towards his off spring, as if it was some kind of an un thinking meclianical pet, and after wards on the unfailing principle that they who sow the wind will reap the whirlwind. * Call on dad. Business is dull, notes must be met, but appearanees must be kept up. Mrs. Shoddy is going to the seashore. *Our girls' must go, the money is to come out of 'Dad.' At first he refuses firmly, but as one reason after another is brought to bear ou him like a battering-ram of persua sion, he gives awayi New bonnets and dresses are bought, a railway journej 's expenses defrayed, and that is only the beginning. Incidental expenses are al ways the straws that break the patient camel's back. They accumulate in heaps, stacks, and at last rise to the dignity of a monument, under which lies a pale, peaceful mau, no longer per sued by the legend; "Call on Dad." Your Calling. "I am, sorry I was not trained to some commercial pursuit," said a pro fessional gentleman to a successful bus iness friend in Detroit. "See here, young man," was the re ply, "do you really think you are sorry? Aren't you doing well enough ? Come, now, would you voluntarily give up your present calling ?" "Too old to think of a change now." "Nonsense ! Never too old to correct mistakes. But in your case I suspect you want to make a mistake instead of to correct one. I made a mistake in my early life, and I'll tell you how it was : My father was a lawyer. There were three boys of us, and every influence was thrown around us when very young to stir in us the ambition to enter pro fessional careers. We had a fine library, the tone of our home was refined and cultured, and before any of us grew up we were well grounded in polite litera ture, We had sense enough to see that father would not listen to any objec tions to a professional life,and so,under a sort of compulsion, we ]went the old gentleman's way. I was too good to be a preacher, and had too weak a stomach to be a doctor. The law was the last resort, so I took it up. After I was ad mitted, 1 whacked away at the dry and unproductive stuff for fifteen yenrs. It was the martyrdom ]of drudgery. Fin ally I made a break, went into business and have always been prosperous and happy from that day to this. You see I had found my niche,and I can say with truth that I find more pleasure iD mak ing a good sale than in pocketing the profits of it. My business suits me; 1 take pleasure in it,and I long ago mad& up my mind that my boys should follow their inclinations in the matter of a fif* occupation, no matter whither they were led.
