' TAKING BOARDERS.
"It a s^andil," the neighbors said, "that Miss Delia should oe obllgod to tak< boarders, after all she'd been through; and h? aven knows boarders didn't help a body to work out her salvation. And so much money Id the family, too. taking It by small and large Wasn't her Uncle Eben. over at Dover, well t' do, and not a chick of his own to care tor. ex c pt the boy he had adopted, who was nc credit to him? It was odd. now, that a mm with poor relations shoalditake to a stranger, when hla own flesh and blood wis needy: but sometimes It did seem as If folks had more fte'lng for others than for their own kith and ktn. Then there were cousin-- in the .city, forehanded and fashionable, who never were worth a row of rlns to Delia; and there was her Great-uncle John's widow a-larklng on the Continent, a gambling at Baden-Baden and trying the waters of every mineral spring in Ihe three kingdoms for no disease 11rider the fcun but old age. she'd been known to say that *er own folks were to.) rich already, and probably she would endow some hospital with her property.* Plainly, wealthy relatives were of no value to Miss Deli;i. To be sure, she had never seen her great aunt since she was a child, when her T'ncle John hsd brough' her Into their simple life for a month's visit, with her French maid and dresses*, her jewels and fallals, which won the heart of her little nametake. Since then I'ncle John's widow had become a sort of glid'^d creature, always young and always beautiful; for. though Delia had ncelved Utile gifts from time to time aero** the seas for the laM fifteen years, she had neither heard nor seen anything of the being who !nd inspired her youthful Imagination, and was quite uncertain If such a person as Mrs John liogerson was in the land of the living tVad or alive, sh-* seemed ?o hive m id 4 no mttcrlal difference in Delia's humdrum life, a'ter having nursed her father throu-'h a lone Illness. Delia fouDd that he had left a h'-ivy mortgage on the homestend. and l:er mother ?rwi herself on the high road to the poorhouse ui less they should bestir themselves. As lit r mother was already bedridden, the stirrln" naturally fell upon Delia, and she advertised lor summer boarders: CiOOD BOARD in tiif OOT'ITRY. t?y tho riverside. at seven dollar- a week. l^aru-e chambers. broad i>ia/zan. hue views. l*-rri"H and ntwi :1k. One mil<-fr in tie station. Address DELIA ROOERSOS, t'rt>flsbiiron<li, Maine. " C'.ieap enough!" commen'ed an el lerly lady v. ho hap5?er?ed upon It. "Delia Rogerson. Au old maid I suppose, obliged to look out for berselt. I've a good mind to try her broad piazzas and new milk. If I don't like there'll fce no harm done." And so Delia's rtrst boarder arrived?an old la :y. with a false front of hair, browu, wrinkled s?<ln? faded eyes, a black alpaca gown and a hair trunk. Delia made her as welcome a-j if she had been a duehess; lighted a wo>l tire in Mrs. Clement's room, as the night was damp acd brought out her dalntest cup aud saucer! wtth the fadeless old roses wreat'\!nz th"m. ".Wonderfully kind." reflected Mrs. clement) as she combed out her wisp of gray hair and confided theJaix' front to a box. "Wonderful kindness for seven dollars a week: She's new to the trade, She'll learn better. Human nature dawn't change with latitudes. She ll tind it doesn't pay to con^der the comfort of a poverty-stricken old erMfcre." But. In spite of her worldly wisdom. Mrs. Clement was forced to confess that Delia had begun as she meant to hoMouk, though otlier boarders came to demand !w attention. to multiply her eai^. The fret and .far of conflicting temperaments under her roof was a new experience to Delia. When Miss 'flrsonie complaint d of the mosiuitoes. with an air as if Miss Rogersou were responsible for their creation; of the tiles, as if they - were new acquaintances; of want of apn?tlte, ^ as though Delia had agreefi to supplv It, along with berries and new milk; of the weather .is ^ if she had pledged herself there should be no sudden changes to annoy her boorders; of the shabby house and Its antiquated furniture, "too old for comiort. and not old enough for fashion"?ther Delia doubted If taking boarders was her mission. "What mak nyou keep us. my dear?" asked Mrs. Clement, after a day when everything and everybody had seemed to go wrong, -why didn't you ever marrv? You had a lover. I daresay?"' " Yes; a long time ago." Tell me about him?it?" ' There isn't much to ten. ne asked me to marry him. He was going to Australia. I couldn't leave mother and father, you know (they were both feeble), and he couldn't stay here. That was all. "And you?vou?" 'Now all men besides are to me like shadows." And you nave never heard of him since?" " Yes. lie wrote; but where was the use? It could never come to anything. it was better for him to forget me and marry. I was a millstone about his neck. I didn't answer his last letter." " And. supposing he should return some day, would you marry him?'' " I daresay," laughed Delia, gently, as if the luea were familiar, "let the neignbors laugh ever so wisely. I've thought of it, sometimes, sitting alone, when the world was barren and commonplace, one must have recreation of some kind, you know. Everybodv requires a little romance, a little poetry, to flavor evervday thinking and doing. I'm afraid you'll ihlnk me a slily old maid, Mrs. clement." "No. The heart never grows old. Tue skin shrivels, fhe color departs, the eyes fade, tne features grew pinched; but th-> soul Is heir of eternal youth?i3 as beautiful at j four-score as at 'sweet and twenty.' Time make amends for the ravages of the body by developing the spirit. You didn't tell me your lovers name. J'erhaps vou'd rather not." ills name was Stephen Langdon. Sometime* captain Seymour runs against him In Melbourne, und brings me word now he looks and what he is doing, though I never, never n.-k, and Stephen never asks for me, that I can hear." Delia's summer boarders were not a success to be sure. 1! they took no monev on', of her p??cker. they put none In. ^he was obliged to eke out her supjiort with copyiag lor lawyer Dunmore and embroidering for Mrs. Judge Dorr. One by one her boarders drooped away like the autumn leaves; all but old Mrs. Clem* ent. -I believe I'll stay on," she said. "I'm getting too old to move often. Perhaps you take winter boarders at reduced rates. Eh?" " Do you think my terms high?" "By no means. But when one's purse is low?" ^ " Yes: 1 know. Do stay at your own price. I can't spire you." She had grown such a fondues i or t he old lady that to refuse her at W her own terras would have seemed like turning f her own mother out of doors; besides, one month the more would signify. But she found ft hard to make both ends meet, and often went liungrj tw )?d th?t her mother and Mrs. element might enjoy enough, without there appearing to be "just a pattern." At Christmas. however, eame a ray of sunshine for iK-lla. in the shape of a hundred-dollar bill from an unknown friend. "It can't be meant 1< r me." she cried. "It'sdiiected to Delia Rosrerson," said her mother "and there's nobody else of that name, now your Aunt Delia's dead." -We're n< t -are she's dead." objected Delia. "Horrors: Don't you know whether your own aunt's de d or alive?" asked Mrs. Clement. In a shocked tone. " It Isn't our fault. She Is rich and lives abroad. 1 was named for her. I used to look n the glass and trv to believe I'd inherited her beauty with the name, though sh? was only our great-uncle's wife." She ought to be doing something for you. " How cau she, if she's dead? I dont blame her. anyway. Her money is her ewn to use ac?ordlrg to her pleasure. Uncle John made it liimscll aiit; gave It to her." " But if she should come back to vou, having run through with It, you'd divide your last crust with her I'll be bound." "I suppose i should." said Delia. The winter wore away, as winters will, and the miracle* oi spring began In fields ana wayside: and Delia's boarders returned with the June roses and dropped again away with L the falling It av.-a, and still Mrs. clement staid on and on. Just now she had been for some weeks in arrears with her reduced board. No money had b?-<'n forthcoming for some time and she was growing more feeote dally, needed the luxuries of an Invalid and the attentions of a nurse, bot i> of which Delia bestowed upon ^ her. without taking thought, for the morrow. "I must hear from my man-of-buslness tomorrow. Delia. I'm knee-deep in dent to you " she began, one night. ' Don't mention it?" cried Delia. "I'd rather never see a cent of it than have you take it to h??urt. You're welcome to stay and share potluck with us; you're such company for mother and me." "Thank you. my dear. I've grown as fond of you as if > ou were my own nesh and blood. There, turndown the light, please. Draw the curiam, dear, and put another stick on the Are, please, it grows chilly, doesn't It? Y'ou might kiss me. just once. If you wouldn't mind. It's leu years or so since any one kissed me.''

ABDICATION OF A RAILROAD KINO. A Proposed Retirement Denied and Reaffirmed?Wfeo Carries the Family Brain*. The Chicago Times of Thursday has the following: Mr. W. H. Yanderbllt has at last taken the trouble to contradict the many Wall street reports which were embodied last week in a telegraphic dispatch to the 77nw*. to the effect that he would at an early day retire from the business of managing railroads. The dispatch was not the report of a bit of gossip, suddenly sprung upon Wall street for stock-jobbing purposes, but It chronicled the convlctioas of many i of the best men in the street?convictions wnich ! were derived from his sale of $37,000,000 of the . stock of a single railroad to a syndicate; from his recorded declaration made months before that he intended to let the public share his managerial responsibilities, and from reports of more recent remarks in which he was said to reiterate the same intention. The belief that Yanderbllt has no desire to keep the control of the Central railroad has been growing for weeks. Nearly every man one meets on the street believes It, Three New York newspapers hive said as much. Vanderbllt's continued large sales of the stock have confirmed the belief, and his denial yesterday did not weaken the Impression, which In almost every business circle or New York has grown Into a conviction, that the next two years and possibly the next year will witness a great change In the ownership and the iwsoiinti of the management of the properties commonly known as the Vanderbut railroads. Mr. Yanderbllt is certainly entitled to his own statement, of his Intentions. Still, he has not always felt called upon to state facta exact as i they afterwards proved to be, when qiestlonei abt.ut his private business. Ills blunt deaiaf I that the New York Central gave special freight 1 contracts was afterwards made ridiculous t.y I the li>qulry of the Hepburn committee. Two I hours after he had been closeted with th? New I York Central syndicate he told the reporter that no s ales ot his Central stock were In conteaip'.utlon. In the conlllct between Mr. YanderI Lilt's words and Mr. vanderbllt's deeds, his i words were decidedly worsted, as was known to I everybody two days later. In fact, Yanderbllt I as a news promulgator would not pass muster in reliable newspaper ofllees. Perhaps this mayexplain why his denial yesterday was received with general incredulity, which wasn't lessened by the Iact that he was caught salting away $3.0(10,000 more four per cents, and was said to intend to increase his holdings or governments to $50,000,000 before the middle of May. It is easy enough to see why Wall street believes that Yanderbllt Is going out of Central in a year or two at farthest. If lie cares to keep in control of the road#no one can see why on earth ne has reduced his holdings of the stock from about $70,000,000 to jsc.ooo.ooo. lie has already placed it within the power of any money king or clique of capitalists to step Into his shoes. If they wish to. It is well known that Jay Gould wishes to make of the Central an eastern outlet to his Waba3h system. His aspiration to get into the Central directory, and to add this property to the long list of could roads, was born of the opportunityMr. Yanderbllt has given him. What is claimed on Wall street Is that If Mr. Yanderbllt honestly Intended to re-elect himself president year alter year, and remain In thorough control of the road, he would never have sold his controlling interest in the stock. They say he Is too shrewd and earelul a man to depend upon the proxies of English holders or any one else tor a continuance ot pdwer. In fact, it Is believed that Mr. Gould could make a more plausible b d lor the English proxies to-day than Mr. Van! rbllt. as he could turn over to the Yanderbiit roads a vast amount of southwestern basinets in addition to their regular patronage. YaEderbllt is credited with a great deal of shrew dness, but no one here regards him as a great railroad man In any sense. Such men as Jay Gould. James K. Keene, Tom Scott and Hut* ell 8<ge have ten times his grasp on the racts and Ideas needful to a mastery of transportation problems. When Yanderbllt became president of rhe central railroad It was already the most pei feetly organized machine In the country, and engineered in Its several departments by some of the acutest business intellects of the land. Such men as C. C. Clark, J. H. Rutter, and Cornelius Yanderbllt, jr., the eldest son or William H., are the sources which supply the brains and ideas of the Central management. It has been Vanderbllt's policy to keep around him as his lieutenants the best men In their specialties in the country, and these men have done all the work, leaving to the great capitalist the purely ornamental part of the management. His ignorance of details of the railroad business has Deen shown on more than one occasion. Last summer, when testifying before the Hepburn committee, It was astonishing on how inanv subjects or merely general railroad information he professed lack of knowledge, while evidently striving to make a good Intellectual showing as a railroad magnate. He couldn't tell, for instance, about what the average cost of freight cars was, and referred the committee to the car-construction department. In his speculative enterprises also his Interests have been largely In the hands ot Addison cammack. Bill Travers, and the rest of the crowd commonly known as "the twenty-third street gang" of speculators. These men are vanderbllt's bosom friends, and It pays them well enough to be faitlitul to him. Year before last, one of his bioktrswhom he had practically given carte bhViChe prospered so well in his ventures for his employer that Yanderbllt made him a Christmas present of $50,000. The heritage of the splendid abilities of Commodore Yanderbllt seems to have fallen not to Irs eldest son, but to his grandson, Cornelius, who is, w ithout doubt, the coming Yanderbllt. Cornelius Yanderbllt, jr., Is vice president of the New York central. Those who have many business dealings with him say that he unites splendid business talent, energy and ambition, w Kb a comprehensive knowledge of railroad questions, and an acquaintance with all the minuthe of the railroad business, that Is remarkable. No man In the Central's service, it is said, can at all compare with him In his thorough familiarity with all the details, however important or Insignificant, ot Its complex management. He is said to be as familiar with the work and methods ot all the departments as their respectful attaches, ne has the finances of the road and its freight schedule at his tongue's end. and can instantly name t he exact charges per car load to any point on the line. He was a favorite with the commodore, who discovered his quality long betore he died. He left the I young man $5,000,000 In Ills will, and the favored grandson was the only one of the heirs except the present head of the house, who became independently rich through the old man's last testament. On Wall street they say that young Cornelius is as sharp as Mr. Keene, and j as well equipped in the science and statistics of railroading as Jay Gould. It Is said that the old commodore's attention was first attracted to the budding promise of his grandson in the following manner: Young Cornelius had been i making considerable money in Wall street speculations, and one day he went to his grandfather for a "point" on certain stocks. It was a peculiarity of the Commodore that if he had any speculative axe or his own to grind he would distribute his "points" to suit his own interest, and he more than once included his offspring among the victims or his confidence. He told his namesake what to do, and dismissed him, : doubtless chuckliug In his sleeve as the young 1 man proceeded to Wall street to carry out his Instructions. But Cornelius, jr., wasn't to be "played lor a sucker" that day. Certain movements on the board convinced him that the energies of his esteemed ancestor were enlisted on the other side, and so he did precisely what the old man told him not to do. The next time the commodore met his grandson, he commenced to condole with him on his losses, when the smiling scion cut him short with the remark that he had made money instead of losing any. What:" exclaimed the fond grandparent, "didn't I tell you to do so and so?r' "Yes, sir," explained the young man, "but I changed my mind and bought instead of selling," The old man concluded that young "Corneel" was no fool. It is said that the commodore amply provided for him In his will in the expectation that Cornelius would thus be enabled to build up an immense fortune of his own, Independently of his father. Sims Reeves, tlie Tenor* [The Hour.] The fameus English tenor, Sims Reeves, contemplates retiring from bis profession. As he must be nearly 60 years old, and is very rich, the wisdom of such a course seems undeniable, though he Is still without a rival In oratorio singing. About fifteen years ago his voice deteriorated considerably, but soon regained Its power, it is an open secret amongst the profession that he is obliged to have all his songs transposed a couple of tones lower than he used to sing them. Sims Keeves, was curiously, enough, both Idolized and hated by the English public. To account for this, it must be borne In mind that he could never be depended on to fulfil his engagements. This gave a start to all sorts ot stories about his tying a confirmed drunkard. But they were utterly untrue, as the fact that he has retained his voice to his present age conclusively proves. The truth Is that his throat was always most delicate; a simple journey by rail was often sufficient to make him "as hoarse as a crow." In the height ot summer he did not dare to walk across Hyde Park without as many raps around his neck as an ordinary man would wear with the thermometer below zero. Keeves was a native of Woolwich, and as a boy attracted the attention ot the officers of the garrison by his musical talent. He began his career as a baritone, and the real register of his voice was not discovered for some time, Even in those early days his throat was most susceptible to oohl and fatigue, and after any severe exertion he was liable to spit blood. Much of his subsequent success was due to the care taken of him by his wife, who sacrificed her own musical career Km- the sake of looking after that of her husband. She took as much care of him as & trainer does of the favorite for the Derby, and during years and years waited tor him behind the scenes with beef tea, gargles and other restoratives. The report about Keeves' habits of Intoxication arose from his fondness for beef tea. He wa3 accustomed to carry about with him a pocket of that nutritious but insipid beverage, and persons seeing him constantly Interviewing the little bottle Jumped at the conclusion that it contained randy. The German Crewn Prince** Family [The Telegraph- ] I have reason to believe that the rumorxi b?ti cthal of Pi luce William, the eldest son ot the Crown Prince of Germany, to Princess Augusta Vk torla, daughter of t he late Duke ot Augnstenbei g, may now be considered as a fact. It has b< en received very quietly here, as It appear.-. tl at the bigwigs at court would have preferred to see Prince William allied to one ot the relgnlrg families of Europe. The Prince was born in 1859, and is consequently twenty-one years of age. His future bride is some three months his senior. iHnce William, like the crown Prince of Austria, has been guided in his choice exclusively by the dictates of his own heart: that Is to say. he Is making a love match. This is but the very natural consequence of the admirable educat ion given to the children of the Crown Prince and Princess of Germany. There Is not a more united nor a happier household than theirs throughout the empire. Their attachment for <?acli other Is proverbial in every German home. Their children have been brought up on sound English principles, and always encouraged in simplicity ot taste and genuineLess of character. Prince William having arrived at years of discretion, has thought proper to select a wife for himself, and to judge by all accounts Princess Augusta of Augustenberg Is in every respect qualified to be his bride. The disappointment of the Prussian court grandees is not likely to excite much sympathy anywhere. There is no reason why members of Imperial and Royal families should not be free to marry In their own sphere as they chose. There are, however, other considerations Involved. Prince William of Prussia and the Crown Prince Rudolph, have, no doubt unwittingly, given a fatal blow to the rigid etiquette of German court life. The whole world of chamberlains, gentlemen In waiting and other gold-laced dignitaries are in a flutter. What is to become or them if young Princes go about looking for wives lust. like simple mortals? Since the office of chief cardle-SLUlfer to his Majesty was first Inaugurate d such a thing had never been heard of. The i rigid atmosphere of the Prussian court had never been agitated by such heretical proceedlr gs. These two sensible and noble-hearted young men have refused to comply with Its absurd and cruel exigencies. They have, curiously enough, at a few days" Interval broken with (he superannuated traditions of the respective households to which they belong.

Judge of our surprise when told that this immense factory (located in South Brooklyh) was devoted to the Preparation of BENSON'S OAPCINE POROUS PLA8TER. We had never thought of thi. branch of the business at all, and. if we had, it would have . been merely a passing idea of a littft room with a few plasters far a few people troubled with back and i other aches; but there, looking at the many busy , women engaged from morning to night in boxing and labeling the plasters, to be made ready for the market every day. one Is amazed at the enormous ] consumption of them there must be. ' "Where on earth can so many go?" we asked. "Everywhere: come into our ahipping department and our state- \ ment will be vanned/* and it was, for the books showed orders from nearly every part at our globe.
