" a go to make up enchan'it'ent: So, at ieae-t, thought Lord Ronald d'KsterrC He had but jimt returned from a two years' sojourn in the heart of Africa, a aojourn fliied with dnneers aud pri lations; his year nint'oered but ,1ve-and-twenty, he was potescrl of a wtli knit, springy frame and a Veen, ciear eye; and he had come back from his travels with fame, coursg.t and en durance, but without a penny that he c:iiid caii his own. What as next to be done? This V iis the problem that filled all his .pare thought. K elder brother had fitted h'.m out for his expedition with the po lite intimation that she act was a virtual wachittgof his hands of the stipertl imis f ndet; his aunts had kissed him warmly at parting that he was amazed to find them "not at home" when tie returned to London; his godfather hud gi'.en him a twenty pound note and such a hearty farewell, that It was i.e wildering to lie cut by him when they met once more in the club smoking room. "It really seems as if they wish I had never come hiieki'" said fheyotmg man to himself, with a smile itt the in credible idea; but as time passed on his smiles died away, and he ground his teeth savagely aa he realized that his r-'lations had thought it a (food invest ment to lay out tWft and an infinity of farewell in the hope of getting rpiit of a troublesome incumbrance. The. thought was a bitter one. and in hisfir.t f i.ry he vowed to leave his native shores by the next ship, and never return to tnem again. Hut upon the heat of his passion there feli a cooling breath, as if from heaven itself, and the lion was ctra'glitway changed inlo a lamb. Lord Konald d'Ksterre had been acrustomed iio long to be looked upon aa a "detri mental" that at first he scarcely dared to show the. attraction that lay for him in Violet Harvey' aptiealing gray eyes mid soft, shining hmr. To km amaze went, however, he found that obstacles trieited away miraculously at his ,ij proaoh. Yioiet herself was shy and re tiring, it is true, but her mother smiled s-.vcetly upon him and her father shook h:m warmly by the hand. Was ever man o blessed befoTe? ''True lote does rv.n smooth some times, after alK" he aid to himself on this bright June evening, as he waiked homeward after meeting with .Mrs. Harvey in the park. ''Shall vou te at Lady Chesterford' Tiirly to-night?" she had said. "Violet and I are going, and we shall be disap pointed if we do not see you." His honest face had glowed with de light as she sjrfike, and be seemed to be Vteadlng on nir as he walked away. "Even Aunt Maria haA taken me back Info favor again," he thought; ''she was horribly eros when I first f-nrn home, hut now she is sugared satin whe.never I come near her. I dare say it was all my fanit, though. 1 know that I was fin ill-conditioned brute until Violet tame to soften me!" Lady .Maria's Powered headdress wa", the first, object that met Lord 1,'omild's ryes when he entered his hostess' crowded drawing-rooms that evening, and somewhat to his surprise it was in close proximity to Mr. Harvey's friz zled grey head, "I should not have thought that Aunt Maria would have anything to do with her," he reflected. "She always says sh" tun detect the faintest tincture of trade ftid she must know perfectly well thn! Mr. Harvey made his money in malt." At this very moment, however, he taught signt of Violet, and forgetting all else, he elbowed hi way eagerly through the crowd, until he reached her side. It might have been only fancy, but at it seemed to him that her wel- gUt6 flit e entfl , . . , , , B , , than she had bchools are earnestly x,. i.,.rt any ra-.,,., j Tnlv 12fh. and send come was a warmer tn, v-. ... ever given hira before, and hfsWVViS; beat faster a he bent over her. "Will you not come into the conserva tory?" he aid, pleadingly; "it is so hot here." ' She rose without a word, and they walked away together. "Do you know that it is only six weeks since I first saw you?" he said. "I can hnrdly believe it myself, for it seems as if I had known you all my life." He had an idea even aa he spoke that he had seen the remark in almost every love story that he had ever read, but he could not refrain from uttering it, for it seemed so exact an expression of his feelings. Violet, too, bad probably heard it before, but from Ronald's lips It sounded absolutely new, and her long eyelashes drooped lower upon her check as she listened. They were walking between banks of flower and fern, and the silence between them was too sweet to be broken at once; but Ronald knew that their soli tude might be disturbed at any moment and rousing himself from his dream he had just opened hia lips to speak, hen a voice from some hidden speaker came plainly to their ears. "It is almost certain to come off to night. I got him an invitation on pur pose." Honald started; It was laoy Maria toloe, but he had not the remotest idea to what she was alluding. In another moment, however, she received her an awer and it was Violet's turn to start, (or it came in her mother's accents "We shall be only too grateful to yon If it does come off, for her papa and I have always set our hearts on her mar rvlna lord. The very minute that Violet tells ma ha ha proposed, the check shall be sent ta you." Ronald drew back a step, his cheek growing pole beneath ita bronze; his hands clenched involuntarily, ana tor moment Violet expected to see him dash out upon the conspirators; but their voice were already needing in the dis tance, and aa he looked around h saw th anmlsh In her i 1 . - A 1 v promote it; and yet he aetuany came here the other day anil used the most terrible language said that I had spoiled his life, and ail kind of dread ful things; and now he has gone off hroad. nobody knows where. I am ur I only hope that- I snail never see him again." Lady Maria's wish seewied likely to be fiii;li'.ed, for five iongyears came and went, bringing no newn of Konaid; and though- five years could not take the ohiom from her cheek, nor the gold from her hair, they conid, and did add very materially to the infirmities of her frame. Hut when at last he did reaji pear, she was wiliing to overlook the past in spite of her resentment, for Ronald had found his way in'o a profit able foreign partnership, and instead of fame he brought back money. "line of tiie est things I ever did for yon wa getting yon out of that en bingieioerti" siie exclaimed fervently v hen they met. fur Lady Maria came of military .-toek, and she knew that one of the most successful maneuvers is to ritrry "ir into your enemy's qnarTers. Ronaid "hot a glance at her from under his dark eyebrows, but said noth ii g. and she continued gayly: "Mr. H.ir.-ey went bankrupt a yaror two af'er you went away, and they are o-.iite in poor eirenmatance now. That ups'art g'.r! waits upon the lodgers, 1 belie-.e." "You don't ay so!" remarked Ronald. "Where are they living?" "Tn Worthing." said Lady Maria, de- i reived by his coolness. "Lady Benning ton was there last month, and she told me that she saw Mr?. Harvey on the parad". and that, the woman actually had the audacity to speak to her! ( an )fm beiieve it ? "I don't know," said Ronald; "but 1 am going to Worthing this afternoon, and I ha!l see whether she wiii speak to me!" "Oh, my dear hoy !" cried Lady Maria, in gen,ine distress. "Pray, pray don't do anything foolish! You have no idea how designing for feopie are " but here she ceased, for the sound of tlv; loudly closing door informed her that the was alone. "Rut why did you send rr.e away?" said Ror.ald. a few hours later, he and iolet stood together under the stnrs, and heard the waves lx'atir.g u je-jn the. beach. "H-eanse I thought, after what we overheard, you feit jourself bound to say what you did out of consideration for me." "So your pride enrne in the way, my little one! Iion't you know that pride is one of the deadly sins? However, I can't preach to you now. because I want to ask yon another question. If you really have loved roe ail along, why did you tell such a dreadful lie?" "A lie!" exclaimed Violet, "Yes, lie; a regular big black one! When I asked you if you bud loved any one, you said yes. .Vow then, confess at onie, because I'm not going to let you off!" lie held her away from him so thai he could look Into her face, and waited inexorably for her answer. "I saw that yon would not listen to uny other objection," she said, "and I thought thtit yon were sacrificing your self, and so " "Yes, I know all that," lie interrupt ed; "but yon had no business to say what yon did! rules, of course, there really was someone?

I here is the growing disposition among politicians who profess to favor sound money to make "nn effort 1 1 check the force of the silver movement by yielding something to it." Of this disposition, we are told, mu'h is heard "in unexpected places." It is this dis position that will go far to carry the convention for any straddle, however decided the leaning toward silver. If McKiniey should be elected on iich s platform, how much would the rep resentatives of republicanism In con gress lie disposed to yield, how fnnch McKiniey himself, for the sake of car rying through n measure of extreme protection?

A more disagreeable oojt'i, Tnan ai E sf scorpion of Ceylon it would be difficult to imagine. Althougti as a rule it aoes not measure more than seven inches in length, there is a species found in the woods that are longer than a foot. They crawl out of some dried wood, and, tak ing up their position on a convenient rock or stone, look, as they hold their great jointed sting curved over their bucks and their claws held aloft, the ery picture of aggressive warfare. Here they stretch themselves in the boil- ng sun and wait their prey. These are the small, beautiful honeybirds that dart from flower to flower, and take the place of the hummingbirds of the west. As one approaches, the scorpion seems to shrink into the stone until it becomes almost imperceptible. Suddenly the great insect will raise its claws and dart at its beautiful victim, which in a moment is destroyed. Chicago News. Pacific Iiland In state at Eruption. The island of Soccorro, 400 miles olf the Mexican coast, is in a state of erup tion. Two months ago, which is the latest date that news was received of the island, lava was running down the mountain sides, overflowing the low lands and traveling to the sea. The news came in a letter to the hydro graphic office from the schooner Zampa. Capt. Peterson of the vessel spoke the Danish bark Schwalde of Guayamos, which reported having passed Soccorro on March 20. The sky and sea were filled with ashes miles away from the island and the blazing mountain was first made out at night. It was a mag nificent Bight, the Danish captain said, but he did not dare venture too near ou account of the troubled condition of the ocean. Chicago News. Taking Time by the Forelock.
