'I h slight failenlng which held them was strulued to Pa tilinott tension, ami when the noble rrscur hnd renclicd within twenty fictof the ground It snapped asunder with a crush. A c ry of horror rose from every throat; but In that Instant, quick as Hash, Arthur hail made a terrible Irup, and had staggered forward, laying lonlo down, amidst mighty cheers, In her com panions' arms. And at that moment tho great wheel fell, but the noble rescuer and the lovely girt he had periled his lifo for wcro safe. Krank Lyons stood by, watching tho thrilling scene with lowering brow. "Itoeheaterlato tho foro again," he muttered throngli uls clenched teeth; ami although ho wat heartily thankful Hint beautiful lonle's lire hint been aaved, hu turned awuy, bitterly chagrined to know that Arthur ltochcsler had made himself the hero of the tragic affair. When lonie opened herryo', sho found herself In her own apartment at Mrs. Gregory's, where stio had been conveyed. .... "Is It a dream:" sho cried, raising her dark, curly head from tho pillow, nnd B.i7.!tig lu tetror uhouthcr, , .

" No, indeed," replied Mrs. flrczory. " It wat Mr. Arthnr ltochcsler Ideas his dear hoart. He perilled his life to rescue you. " Ionic turned away, uttering no word, thongh, deep lu her heart she felt sadly disappointed to think It was not Krank Lyons who had aaved her. "Ho sent you a bouquet, however," contlnnoJ Mrt. Orcgory, pi icing In her hands the flowers Krank Lyons had left at tho door un hour before. Ionic took the roc eagerly, ami as alto tinned her fiico among thtm, she found nmong their fragraut depths a nolo, which read as follows: "Ionic, will you grunt moan Intertlow thlsnf tcruoonT 1 ahull count the hours until lseeyou.

Ho could not help but note how her eyes brightened uud then Onioned. ' You do not know how Jealona I am ot the man who rescued you, Ionic," ho said, lu an agllated voice. "The moment I taw your peril I darted across the way to secure a rope and a ladder to make tho deicent sure. Then I saw, when I returned a moment later, that Itoehestor had headed mo nlf ; tint tho fellow was mnd to risk bringing yoa down those steps, Instead of waiting for the ladder to be put up." lonie gavo a great algh of relief. This was n comforting insurance to her. and sho never thought of doutdlng him when lie added "that hu would glte twenty lives, If hu hud them, for her dear sake ; for living would bo Intolerable to. htm without her." Hu said It in so sincere a tono that, looking Into his fuce, tho girl bellut cd him. Tho world HU'iiicd to suddenly grow dark when hotookhlc departure.

"Tnls alfidr may end In n lovo scene and a romantic marrlago If I do not nip It in the hud," hu muttered, striding angrily un nnd down the luxuriously furnished room. "Hut surely the boy has not been hot-headed enough to full ln lovo with her. "No, no," ho muttered, under his breath. "Arthur must marry Kliunc, my ward, whether hu will or no. For long years this has been my plan. Ills thu only, way out of the lubyrllitlt of ullllciilllea lu which 1 am placed.

Itrspeetnble Old (irntlrinnn In Hctn Frnnelsco. (Von IA Snn rronrltto A In A curious and amusing Incident occurred yester day on Clay street hill, between Btockton and 1'owell ttrtcf. An elderly gentleman whose Alder manlo girth and florid countenance bespoke a love for the good thlogtof this life wat tolling slowly nil the ascent. The day was rather warm and the exertion canted tho old gentleman to perspire freely. He had got at least a quarter ol a block np tho hill when a Chinese appeared at the corner of Prospect place wheeling one of Falrbank s patent scales beforo him. Atlll-lttcV would have it, he he had Juat rounded the corner, when he placed hit foot on a banana peel, Blip- ed and fell to the earth, letting the machine go ns ho fell. Tho so lies starte d uown MIL Tho cldcrlv gentleman, stinled by the rumbling nolae, looked nn and for a moment wa paralyzed with terror. The machine was com ing straight for him. Then hi- ttled to dodge It. lie Jumped to tho ulae of tho sidewalk. The ma chine Jumped too. Ho skipped to tno wall and so did the scales. Hack he went, but his foe still headed him off. lie Jumped and skipped and panted and perspired, but never once tiiouptit of getting off the sidewalk Into tne middle of tho street. 'Iho machine wua almost upon hint. Ills hat fell off. Iho few straggling hairs which orni mettled Iho old gentleman's scalp stood straight up and every poro ptoveil a fouulnin nf perspiration. Nearer and nuircr enmo the machine. Hal ho would run for It. Ilo turned, but a'ns! too late. Tho deadly machine caught him aoottt tho ankles. Up went his feel, and tho old gentleman mado tho acquaintance a posteriori of the rnpldly-tnoving scales. Down the hill they went together, thp old Bcntleinau'a arms whirling llko a wlmMnm and the wheels of the machine creaking out unearthly sounds. Tobogganing w.is nothing to It. On Btockton ttrcet crossing they came to a fall stop. The old gentleman lumped to his feet unhurt nnd glared around llercely. lie perceived the smiling coiintenanco of the Innocent heathen, who ex tended his hand with a amllo of ehlldllkcnlm pllelty and Slid. " Yon allco mine big Mellcnn man. My machine nn maun wavce big man nllce name you. Him blukeo two places. Huppoao you payee tno ten dollu for mend him:" "You scoundrel I" cried tho old gentleman, purple tilth nigc. "How dure ou make such u proposition: I'll sue vou for damages, sir, How dure you let that machlno go: lly tflundor I" The laal ejaculation was caused by the speaker discovering that his IndlspcnauhlCB hail suffered severely In tno recent toboggan rldo down hill, and Unit several passers-bv. Including some young ladles, could not tall to eibiervc his predicament. " Orcat Caeaarl what shall I do:" he murmured. "Mebbe Mellcati manulleo samo payee me ten dollo," broke In the f'hln'sc, smiling blandly nt tho victim's attempt to hide the state of affairs. " I won't give you n cent, sirl" " Mcllcan man no go homo like that. Officer allrsthlm. Buppuio ou slto tno ten dollar, mo go Mcllcan mau notno and bring pants. Y'ou nllco same go In Chinaman's house. " " Yon swlndllug'healhcii," yelled tho victim, na he placed hla back Drinly against tho wall. " I'll not give yon n cent. I'll huvo yon arrested. I'll" At that moment a cir came over the hill loaded with passengers. On the dummy sat the old gen tlemun's wife and several friends. It would never do to be seen lu such a sorry pllgnt. "I suppose I must," he murmured. "Y'ou hoathen, go to Lot kin street and glvo 'em this nolo and I'll glvo you fj. " " Five dollu too little. Heap too far. Mo go for ten dolla," replied John. 1 he victim was obliged to give ln. Ho mado the bargain and went Into tho Celestial's home He waited thero until the Chinaman returned, when he changed his nether garment and took the car to his home. Inwardly vowing never to climb Clay street hill again. Wood's Model or the Ilielo Slietuc. IFrom lh A'aw art, Journal.

VletmUr Osersry, The article on ths "Bongs of tho War," by Mr. Brander Matthews, In the Century Magazine for August, brought back to my memory vividly an experience at Mnrfreesboro', jnat after the battlo of Stone's Hirer. Thero wsb a good deal of gloomy feeling there. Tho losses in the army had been terrible, and besides, there were among the troops a large number of KontucVy aud Tennessee regiments, to whom the Emancipation Proclama tion waa not palatable. A number of offlcers had resigned or tendered resignations on account ot It, One day a whole batch of resignations came ln, all written ln tho same handwriting and coming from one regiment, Including nearly all the officers In It, aaslgnlng aa a rea son their unwillingness to serve longer In conse quence of the chanie In the purpose and conduct of the war. The Instigator of these letters waa found, and dismissed with every mark of Ignominy his shoulder-strips were cut off, nnd he was drummed out of camp. This licrolo remedy cuuaed the otllcers whom ho hud in slid to with draw their resknatlonu; but Die thins rnuklod. A few days afterwards a glee club came down from Chicago, brloplng with them the new irong, We'll rail round tbe flag, bora, and It ran through the o imp like wIM.fjre. The effect waa Ilttle short of miraculous. Itputsa much spirit and cheer Into the army as a victory. Day and night one could hear It by every, camp fire and ln every tent. I ahall never forget now tne men rolled out the line: And althongb be mar be poor, be shall never be a alave. I do not know whether Mr. Hoot knows what good work hla song did for as there but I hope so. i i One War of l.ooUlus; nt It, o ".
