Mr. Bold, the solicitor, found among the correspondence on his otllce desk one morning, a letter bearing an Egyp tian postmark. It turned out to be a communication from a stranger, in forming him of the death in the Sou dan of Colonel Ernest Tremayne, and reminding the lawyer that the will of the deceased was in his possession. •Aha 1' exclaimed Mr. Bold, glan cing at the inscription. 'Will of Mr. Ernest Tremayne, eh ! Dated sixteen years ago. Executor, Mr. J. llosset er.' •Captain llosseter ! I know the man,' exclaimed Mr. Bold. 'I forgot what I've heard of him, but I fancy his reputatian is a little tarnished. So he is the executor, is he ? Oh ! a very doubtful character—quite on adven turer, in fact, 1 said Mr. Bold, looking more and more scandalized. 'I wonder what the will says,' 1 e added. Under the circumstances he felt no scruple about opening the envelope and unfolding the will. And glancing at its contents, he said aloud : •lie appoints his friend, James Ros seter, executor, and trustee and guard ian of his infant daughter. Every thing to the child.' •Not much of an executor and trus tee,' observed Mr. Hold's clerk, Whit taker, disparagingly. 'A nice sort of guardian for a young lady.' •I'm afraid this is very serious, Whit taker,'said Mi. Bold, looking perturb ed. l I had entirely forgotten about this will, or I would certainly have suggested to the testator to make anoth er. He made it when quite a young man—l recollect now his telling me his wife was just dead—without sutli cient lellectiou as to the character of his friend. In those days I dare say there was nothing against this young Mr. llosseter.' Mr. Bold was one of those old fash ioned, fussy, self-important praction ers who are apt to assume a sort of pa ternal authority over bis clients. But he was extremely honest and conscien tious, and his main idea was to pro mote the welfare of those who consult ed him. He had for some years past, heard rumors concerning Captain llos seter, ,which he now coiuidered he ought clearly to have brought to the testator's knowledge. It was true that he was not personally acquainted with the captain, and could not vouch for accuracy of the scandals that had come to his ears. But he knew Captain llos seter to be an impecunious gentleman, addicted to betting and gambling, a club lounger, without visible means of subsistence ; a loud-voiced, jovial, easy going, dissipated person, of a type regarded by grave men of business with horror and distrust. The old lawyer fidgetted a good deal during the day, nor was his uneasiness allayed by the report of his clerk ot his interview with Messrs. Overland & Co., the army agents. From these gentlemen he had learned that Colonel Tremayne had contrived to amass a considerable fortune during hi 3 exile and had remitted home for investment from time to lime sums amounting in the aggregate to neaily £20,000. Whittaker couM obtain no information regarding the daughter of the deceased man. Col. Tremayne's agents recol lected that they used at one time to pay for the child's schooling at Brigh ton, but this was raauy years ago, and, at the present moment, they knew nothing whatever about the young lady. 'She can't be of age yet,' remarked Mr. Bold. 'My recollection is that when the will was made the child was a baby. That was the impressioD I gathered at the time.' 'The young lady may have died,' suggested Whittaker. 'lt doesn't fol low that she is still alive because the testator did not alter his will.' There is one thing quite certain,' said Mr. Bold, with emphasis ; 'Cap* tain Rossiter must not be allowed to have the handling of £20,000. lie must renounce, and the money must be paid iQto court, which will appoint a proper guardian. Did you find out his address V 'Blenheim Club,' responded Whit taker. 'Humph !' snorted Mi. Bold, seizing his pen. Iloweyer, he wrote a polite note to the captain, informing him of Colonel Tremayne's death, and requesting him to call on the following morning with reference to the will. Mr. Bold was very determined to have his own way, and he felt very lit tle doubt that he would succeed. Con sequently, wbeu Captain Rossetter called the next dav, he received him with an air of calm asurance and su periority which was calculated to leud weight to his counsels. 'Captain Rosseter,' he said, a little stiffly, as his visitor seated himself in the client's chair, *1 want to have a chat with you about our poor friend's MILLHEIM, PA., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 18., 188(>. will. Had you heard of his death, by the way V' 'Yes,' said the captain, who seemed somewhat subdueu and ill at ease in the presence of the lawyer. 'Ah ! What was it V That (bead ful climate, 1 suppose V' inquired Mr. Bold, quietly taking stock of his com panion. 'Now this is a very unsatis factory document, he added, in a con fidential tone. 'To begin with, it is sixteen years old. Extraordinary that the testator should not have changed his views in sixteen years.' Mr. Bold glanced up at Captain R e setter as he spoke ; hut the latter eith er had nothing to say or else did not choose to commit himself to an opin ion. He remained silent, and Mr. Bold instinctively mistrusted him the more on account of his reticence. 'By his will, made sixteen years ago,' said the lawyer, meaningly, 'the testa tor left everything he possessed to his daughter, and appointed you sole ex ecutor and trustee and guardian of his child,' The lawyer looked keenly at his com panion as he made this announcement, and felt puzzled at his demeanor. The captain hung his head for a moment and then blew his nose violently. One would almost have imagined that he was sentimentally nflVcted by the news. But the lawyer, being in a sus picious mood, was chietly struck by the fact that Captain llosseter studiously avoided meeting his gaze. 'I suppose the young lady, Miss Tre mayne, is alive still ?' inquired Mr. Bold. 'Yes,' answered the captain. 'She must be nearly grown up,' con tinued Mr. Bold. The captaiu nodded, but seemed by his manner to wish to change the sub ject. Mr. Bold noticed this at the time, aud thought a good deal about it afterward. •Of course, Captain llosseter,' said Mr. Bold, in his most convincing and and authoritative tone, 'you will not take upon yourself the responsibility thrust upon you by this will, which, no doubt,was never intended to stand.' 'Why do you say that ?' inquired the captain, rather quickly. •Well, frankly, Captain llosseter, be tween you and me, do you consider that you are fitted to be a young lady's guardian ? Excuse my outspoken ness,' added the lawyer, endeavoring to soften his remarks by smiling and showing his false teeth, 'but really, now, wou'd you in the testator's place 1 'Anyhow, there is the will,' inter posed Captain Rossetter, evidently not liking the insinuation. 'Yes, here is the will, but I should certainly advise you to wash your hands out of it,' said Mr. Bold, in a fatherly manner. 'What I propose to do is to pay the money -by the way, I sunpose there is money V' '1 supp >se so,' siid the ciotain, with real or affected earnestness. 'Pay the money into court and get a legal guardian appointed, > resumed Mr. Bold, with cheerful confidence. 'You will thus be relieved of all respon sibility and trouble.' The captain, who had become very red and uncomfortable, made no an - swer to this suggestion, but stretched out his hand and took up the will. He read it through carefully, and then pro ceeded to fold it up. 'I am entitled to have this, I sup pose,' he said, almost defiantly. 'Well—er—yes, in strictness,' replied Mr. Bold, completely taken aback. 'But it has to be approved aud deposit ed in the probate court.' 'Yes, I know,' replied the captain, rising from his seat and thrusting the document into his pocket. 'Am I to understand,' gasped Mr. Bold, turning crimson, 'that you pro pose to employ your own solicitor i" 'I have a solicitor,' said the captain, shortly. 'Good day to you, Mr. Bold.' 'Stay ! Stay, sir !' exclaimed Mr. Bold, endeavoring to control his indig nation, which almost choked him. 'I must trouble you to give me a receipt for the document.' 'By al' means,' said the captain, who seemed to have recovered his assur ance. The lawyer struck the hand-bell up on the table sharply, and with forced calmness instructed Whittaker to pre pare the necessary receipt. This for mality being completed, the captain strode out of the ollice, leaving the law yer and his clerk staring at one another in speechles indignation. 'The man is a rogue !' said Mr. Bold as soon as he could speak. 'Means to collar the money,' remark ed the clerk. 'Not if lean help it I' exclaimed Mr. Bold, wiili unusual energy. 'l'll ap ply to the court immediately and have the man removed from his otlice.' 'You will have to get evidence first,' said Whittaker, prudently. 'Pooh ! his reputation will be suffi cient,' returned Mr. Bold, impatiently. A FAI'KR FOR THE HOME CIRCLE. However, when he came to make in quiries about Captain Rossetter which he pocceded to do forthwith in the heat of his virtuous indignation he found it more difficult than lie had imagined to convict him of serious misconduct. The captain had led the life of a man about town, had had nu merous transactions with the money lending fraternity, had played high and drank pretty freely, and there were dark corners in his career which would no I, perhaps, have stood the test of censorious investigation. But there was no recorded act of his that could be pointed out as disgraceful or dishon orable. To Mr. Bold's secret vexation ho found that people were inclined to judge the captain leniently, to speak lightly of his faults and lay stress upon his good nature, his easy generosity and his jovial disposition. Moreover, it seemed that during the last year or two Captain llosseter had abandoned his usual haunt and occupations, had given up cards and had shown distinct symptoms of sober respectability. The result was that the lawyer could not see his way to make a case against Captain llosseter which would justify him in invoking the interference of the court or chancery in the interest of the captain's ward. Mr. Bold did not ad mit that he was beaten, even to him# self, and his prejudice against the cap tain was as strong as ever. He was convinced in his own mind that Cap tain Rossetter contemplated a gross fraud connection with his trusteeship, and he fully intended to checkmate him. Meanwhile, however it transpir ed that there was no living member of the Tremayne family who could be brought forward to pose as next friend to the young orphan, and his technical difficulty,combined with the absence of proof of the captains doubtful reputa tion, caused him to defer taking any steps. At length, however, after many weeks had elapsed, Whittaker came in to his master's room one day with a startling piece of intelligence. The ever-watchful clerk had discovered that Captain Ilosseter had purchased for himself an estate at Stanmore for £7,000. 'At least he bought it iu his wife's name,' explained Whittaker. 'But the question is, where did the money come from ?' 'Good heavens !' exclaimed Mr. Bold. 'Married, eh I is he V I heard a rumor, but he isn't supposed to be married. However, as you say, the question is, where did he get that £7,- 000 from ?' 'I don't think it is difficult to guess,' said Whittaker, with a grin. "Pon my word, Whittaker, I'm a fr.aid it is a case of serious fraud. I know for certain that the man has not £7,000 of his own,' said the lawyer, getting excited. 'I wonder where the young lady is ?' exclaimed Whittaker. 'We must find out,' said Mr. Bold, energetically. 'Overland & Co. gaye you the address of the school at Bright on, didn't they ? Well you must go down there at once, Whittaker, and trace her. I feel it ray duty to investi gate this matter, for I should not he the least surprised if it transpired that this Captain Kosseter has been helping himself to the trust money.' Whittaker, being entirely of the same opinion, started off on his mis sion with out delay, and was absent about a week, during which time Mr. Bold fumed with impatience and curi osity. Whittaker's report, when he returned, was not calculated to allay suspicions. He had traced Miss Tie mayne through her girlish career, from Brighton to a school at Cheltenham, and from thence to Bath. At the lat ter city she had resided until a year or two ago with an elderly lady, who had suddenly died, since which event nobody knew what had become of the 3'oung girl or where she had gone after leaving Bath. 'l've made up my mind what I will do, Whittaker,' said Mr. Bold, after discussing the situation with his clerk. 'I shall go and see captain Ilosseter and insist upon his telling me where the young lady is. If he re fuses, I shall feel justified in taking le gal steps. My belief is that the poor young girl is dead or is being kept out of her inheritance, or part of it.' 'lt looks black—very black,' acqui essed Whittaker. The consequence was that next day Mr. Bold, who was a plucky determin ed little gentleman, and was capable of making personal sacrifice for the sake of justice and principle, journied down to Stanmore and presented himself at the door of the captain's newly acquir ed residence. Ilis object was to take his adversary by surprise and to profit by his confusion. Ilis design was partial ly successful, for no one could have looked more startled and confused than Captain llosseter, when his sturdy ac cuser was ushered into his presence. 'Mr. Bold !' exclaimed the. captain, nearly dropping the post-prandial pipe which he was smoking. 'Yes, sir,'said the lawyer severely, and as soon as the door was closed he confronted his companion and said : 'Cipiam llosseter, I have come down here, as solicitor to the Tremayne fam ily for many years, and as solicitor to the late Colonel Tremayne, to de mand of you information concerning Colonel Tremayne's daughter.' 'Sit down,' said the captain, not very politely, perhaps, but with tolera ble calmness. 'No, thank you, Captain llosseter,' returned the lawyer, in a tone which showed that he did not intend to be trifled with. 'I give you fair warning that if you don't answer my question I shall invose the aid of the law to find out what I have not been able to dis cover myself.' Before the captain could reply the door opened, and a young lady entered the room. The lawyer turning round, only caught a glimpse of her as she en deavored to retire, but he perceived that she was young and pretty. The captain, however, called after her. 'Annie, my dear, come in. Let me introduce you, Mr. Bold, to my wife.' Mr. Bold bowed stiffly, and the young lady,as though instinctively sus pecting the lawyer's li isti'e intentions, crossed over to her husband's side and laid iier hand lovingly on his shoulder. 'Annie, my darling,' said the cap tain, with singular gentleness, 'you must let me tell Mr. Bold your little history. How your father, my good friend, on leaviug England, laughingly confined his little daughter to ray care. How I used to call and see you at school with my pockets full of sweet meats. How your bright face and In nocence brought sunshine into my heait when it was full of darkness. How you grew up and teased me and made me realize the unworthiness of my life. How I strove to be better,on ly to learn my weakness. How at length, upon yoifr old school-mistress, with whom you lived, dyiug, two years back, you voluutarily consented to de vote yourself to reforming ' 'Nonsense, James,' interposed the girl, putting he little hand over bis mouth and kissed him impulsively. The captain borehis infliction cheer* fully enough, though his eyes were moist as he turned again to the lawyer and said : 'The long and short of the matter is, Mr. Bold,that I married this young lady two years ago, with the full consent of her father, Colonel Tre mayne.' 'You might have said so when you called upon me that day,' retorted the lawyer, feeling smaller than he had ever done in his life. At a sign from her husband Mrs. liosseter glided oui of the room, and when the door had closed the captain retorted : 4 So L might, if you had been civil. But your manner was so suspicious, aud,l may add, insulting—' 'l'm very sorry,' intersposed the law yer. looking shamefaced. 'Pshaw ! Never mind my dear sir,' cried the captain, heartily. *lt was my own fault—an unpleasant reminder of my past life. Thanks to my wife, I have mended my ways, turned farmer, grown respectable—the least I could do in return for the sacrifice she made in throwing herself away upon me. There was no concealment ; she married me with her eyes open, and her father also gave his consent after I had made full confession of my career. He knew, poor fellow, what it is to fall. God bless Eri-:est Tremayne ! He trusted me with his child and his child's for tune. In all your experience, Mr.Bold, you will never find a more faithful guar dian and trustee than I shall be,in spite of my antecedents.' 'I belieye it, Captain Rosseter—l hon estiy and sincerely belieye it,' exclaim ed the lawyer, genuinely moved ; 'and if you will permit me to apologize to you, and to shake you by the hand, I shall feel more comfortable—l shall in deed.' A Powerful Jaw. Chief Prummond, of the United States Treasury Department, stationed at New York, is a broat-shouldered, heavy-set man, and wears heayy-rim med spectacles. He has a wonderful jaw and can bite a counterfeit coin in two, from a dollar to a five-cent piece. No matter when or where he is, he in variably bites a spurious coin in two when he sees it. He bit a dime for a street car conductor not long ago, and the latter wanted to jump on him. The plucky Chief made him show every coin he had. A passenger declared it was an outrage and told the Chief that he frequently passed counterfeit money. When the detective calmly opened his coat and showed his badge,the self-con fessed shover of the queer immediately left the car.

An expression of profound gloom on tlio face of a friend led to inquiries which dieted a tale of sorrow and suf fering. 'I)o I look mournful V he asked. Do I bear the appearance of a man whose soul has been entered by the iron of adversity ? Well, that's the way I feel. You know,l moved day before yes terday. Well, hurt by the unfeeling remarks of my late landlady and the fact that she retained my trunk (as a gage d'amour, I suppose) I sought the seclusion of a West Side boarding house. The room is pleasant and the man who occupies the other half a very nice fellow. Night before last I went home early, and when ready my new churn boldly approached an innocent-looking piece of furniturcand after a little sparing for time let in with right and left aud brought to view a comfortable bed. I bad uever seen a folding-bed before, and was a little astonished. However, I made no remarks but turned in. Last night my chum was out, and I didn't know what to do. I loafed around the room,now and then casting a glance at the folded bed and admiring its compactness and air of gentility, but somehow I did not feel like tackling it all by myself. But it bad to be done. I remembered that my chum had first lifted the top. I did that. But when I let go it came back with a slam that started the baby owned by the second floor front into a wild symphony cf woe. Then I sat down and thought. To gaiu time on the bed I undressed. Say, did it strike you as chilly last night ? No ? Well, it was. Indeed it was cold. The combination of that fact and my ab breviated costume urged me to renew the attack. This time I pus Led the top past the centre of the spring, and when released it went on with a noise loud enough to arouse the pug in the room across the hall. By that time I was reckless. I seized a strap and pulled. The whole thing begun to come. I strapped it half way and considered. Considering was hard work. So was holding. I pulled. It came, and I .went. But I didn't go far enough, and the bed caught me. I was underneath. The Charleston man on the floor below dreamed he was at home. Well, when I got out and took an inventory, I was minus considerable skin, but the accession of my eyebrow balanced things. The bed was open, but the middle was way below the average. But J was too impatient to be particular. With considerable em phasis 1 turned out the gas and rolled in. As soon as I hit the bed it shut up—that is, as close as it could. It was close enough. For about ten minutes I would have swapped places with any one of the seven anarchists and given him odds. When I got out of that place there was not enough left of the bed-clothes to make a re spectable bandage. I know, because I tried it. What 1 suffered you will never kuow. This morning the landlady inform ed me, that had she known I was a subject to delirium tremens,she would have refused the admittance that gave me a chance to ruin the reputation of her boarding house. As I left the house the boarders poked their heads out and whispered: 'That's him; he had 'em bad last night,' and simi lar encouraging remarks.— New York News. Rice at the Fair. Everybody, almost, knows what a wide-out short-up figure Billy Itice, the minsirel, has. Well, about two weeks ago (at least so we are informed) Billy was at an agricultural show in a one night-stand town, and as he stood in a thoughtful attitude contemplating the exhibit, the editor of the country paper and a farmer passed by. • 'Look there,' whispered the editor, 'that's Rice.' 'Where V inquired the farmer. 'There,' said the editor, to ward William. 'Rice ?' repeated the farmer, inquir ingly. 'Yes.' 'Well, by gosh, it's the funniest rice I ever seen. It looks a blame sight more like a pumpkin. Let's go an' take a look at it.' Billy met the farmer half way and paralyzed him. — cLshimjton Critic. —First-class job work doue at the JOURNAL, office.

Armstrong, now in co nmatid of the bark Kalakaua, loaf ing lumber at Port Blakely for the west coast of South America, was in Seattle the other day. Captain Armstrong will be remembered as the commander who brought the ship Templar from New York to Sin Francisco a few years ago on one of the most remark able passages on record. After being out for some time, the captain went to a foreign port, and for some reason his crew, excepting the officers, left. Fin ally two English ships came in, and from them Captain Armstrong made up a new crew, and after being out four days, the entire crew, including the captain and his daughter, were taken down with yellow fever. The lirst mate died, and several of the sail ors. Those who had the disease less violent threw the dead overboard, one by one. The ship drifted about with out a pilot or navigator for more than a year. The captain, for two years, was so violent from the ravings or the fever that he had to be chained to the deck to keep him from jumping overboard, lie wears the scars from the chains and lashings to this day. During the year that the ship drifted about, the second mate and three or four of the sailors recovered, but being out of sight of land, and not under standing navigation, they were power less to do anything with the ship. Fin ally the daughter regained her reason, but not her strength. Oae day she sent for the second mate aud asked liirn to carry her on deck, "which he did. She then sent for her father's instruments, and by the aid of these and her knowl edge of navigation she figured out the location of the vessel. She then tiok the charts from the cabin and traced out a route to Sau Francisco. She then practically took command of the vessel aud ordered ihe second mate aud suryiying members of the crew to make sail, and gave them the direction in which to sail. Every day for months she would be carried on deck to take the sun and give her orders. Days passed and the ship continued on her journey. Being so light-handed the vessel could not be properly handled and could carry but little sail, consequently her progress was slow. After many weary, dreary months the Captain regained his reas on, and when he learned of what his daughter had done he was greatly sur prised, and declared that had he been placed in the same position he could not have done better. The ship was loaded with general merchandise, the cargo being insured for over $2,000,000. The long absence of the ship, and no tidings from her, led the owuers and all interested parties to believe that she, with all hands on board, had been lost. Imagine their surprise, after the sup posed fate of the ship had almost pass ed from their minds when one bright day in summer the ship Templar, with lier cargo all iutact, came sailing into Sau Francisco bay. The Man With a Glass Eye. [From the Chicago Inter-Ocean ] 'Speaking of glass eyes,' said an old lawyer, 'brings to mind a little inci dent that occurred inChicago. Among our young professional men is one whose brilliant black eyes would at tract attention anywhere. He gees much into society, and is quite a fa vorite among the ladies because of his eyes. One of these beautiful black eyes is glass, but it seems so much the counterpart of the other that not one person in a hundred would detect its artificiality. Among the members of his profession not one knows that the young man has only one good eye. On one occasion he escorted a young lady to the refreshment tables and entertained her with pleasant chat in away that he thought was making a favorable impression. As they were taking ice-cream he looked up as she gave utterance to some startling exclamation, and was sur prised to see her eyes fixed on him with a look of mystified intentness and horror. She was a well-bred girl, but something so astonished her that she continued to look at him in away that raised the question of his sanity. A fly had lit square in the centre of his black glass eye]and remained there, he, of course, unconscious of its pres ence. The spectacle eye look ing at her with a "fly on it and the owner making no attempt to brush it o£F was too much for his companion. His explanation, even, wa3 not quite satisfactory. She had believed so im plicitly in those magnificent eyes that she has since that time regarded him as sometning of a fraud.'
