NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER ?2 1894.
TALES OF TEN TRAVELERS. (Continued from third page.) I have a Rood general knowledge, of what Is required, air!" At this expression of proficiency. John Hicks smiled and hi work-Klrls snick ewli while Mr. Edwards begun to fuel that there were aomo thing unknown even to the all-knowing newspaper num. "Mother, what do you say?" asked John Hicks with a strange pantonine which Included several nods In the di rection of the gorged book-shelves. Mother did not know Just whm to say, but thought that the young man might possibly do nicely after a time. "Well, I think w shall have to take you on. Mr. Edwards. Still, this is the beginning of the busy season, and 1 mu't iJcvote much time to you. Hut my daughter will help you out!" con cluded John Hicks encouragingly. The young man was visibly cmbar asscd at this Information, but he val iantly repressed It as he was shown his place; while the vemmaker, for the want of something simpler for the new comer to do, prepared two long strips of cloth with a piece of wlggan between, which were basted together and punch ed full of button holes, upon which the apprentice was presently set to work. The girls continued to slyly wink and giggle among themselves, and John lllcks himself seemed to consider the whule affair us quite a Joke; for as he xvasionnlly peeped over his spectacles it the new apprentice and saw hljn Itruggllng manfully In his great labor until the perspiration flooded his face and trickled into his eyes and down his nose and chin, he would gravely Fhake his head at mother, nod at the novice and chuckle quietly to himself; until mother, In turn, would, nod toward the books, as If to hopefully say: 'Terhaps good for something, John!" when the vestmaker would nod a smiling approval and cheerily resume his work. Soon a merry little woman's voice was heard on the stairs singing: "Then you-h'll re-m'hem-ber m'he!" And if Ned Watson, alias Mr. Edwards, had ever had cause to remember Milly lllcks, it was made a hundred times more vivid at this moment, this su preme moment to him, when she burst into the room with the day's marketnig upon her arm, bringing In every feat ure and motion the freshness and glory of the morning; and then, if not before, his whole nature revolted at the arti fice. "Then you-h'll " "Introduce you, Mildred," interrupted the vestmaker, "to Mr. Edwards, who will serve his time with us. Mr. Ed wards, my daughter Mildred; 'Milly,' w'e call her." It all flashed over her just as fully and distinctly as though she"had wit nessed every act and expedient' prepar atory to his being there; and she felt hurt, insulted, indignant. It showed in her face and eyes, too. But she saw the man that had perhaps saved her life; the man that she knew loved her; the man who was bemeaning and abasing himself in the eyeS of "his friends and society to remove her fa ther's prejudices and win her on her own ground; and, as he turned his flushed face toward her, mutely plead ing agaiust betrayal, she merely said, "Good morning, Mr; Edwards;" and he stammered out something in response as she quickly passed into another room. Rut the bird' of thfe little court sang never another song That day. It would take a long time to tell how, under Milly's instruction,-the vestmak cr's apprentice worke'd as he had nev er worked before; how, woman-like, having him fn' her power, she inflicted upon him countless little asperities, for which her father gently chided her, but which were in turn recompensed by kindly suggestions and pleasant linger ing over side-pockets, felling in lin ings, making the backs, basting and stitching on braids, shaping, pressing and sponging, and other divisions of the work. How at first he dined at some cheap restaurant near but soon joined the family meals, gradually not only be coming a workman, but a guest and a friend; how, very soon, the evenings were passed among the htippy piece workers.and happy evenings they were; and how as August, the golden month, wedded September its dreamy bride and a touch of life's rigors was given in the early October days, John Hicks' heart wenf out to his apprentice as a friend to a friend, as a father's to a son, and realizing that another love was ripen ing In the little rooms he would nod gravely to mother (she had seen how It was going long, long before!) who would look up with a strange smile of acqulesence which held a touch of sad ness; for Milly was the only child that had ever wakened a mother's Inex pressible tenderness In her true moth er's breast. And so it came about that one Octo ber Sabbath evening, when the "chil dren," as they had come to call them, were away at church, i John Hicks took mother's hand, and, after holding It a little time, said sadly but still lovingly: "I think, mother, we will have to lose our Milly soon." And mother, looking out among the stars above the little court, only an swered: - "Yes, John, I fear we will," 4 IV. Ned and Milly had returned to the house, and, unconscious of everything around them, had been engaged In that peculiar Irregular conversation " com mon to young persons on certain ten dor occasions, when a gentle tapping upon the Inside of John Hicks door was heard, and as If to prepare them for an unexpected Intrusion, a caution ary "H'm!" preceded the vestmaker' s rosy face, which was almost eclipsed by a capacious night-etfp. . "What "is" the' matter father?1 asked Milly timidly. , ., "Why, I hope nothing,- my dear," he replied kindly, though betraying considerable nervousness; "but there may be before morning, as thane seems to be a very extensive conflagration i the West Sfde!" r : ; : f y -'" 7f his fferla.Mr Edwards -anoppori tunity to relieve the awkwardnegjj of the. rigid position, be had suddenl.ae sumed. '' He stepped at once tb the wlS ddw and remarked that ' the"Mty did have an unusuaHy-bright appearance. "twill stay littte Jonge&Jf Irilnk Mwt'hnr. at the old entiemanTrtii'ao3S "and If It becomes serious we will let you know." "The lire, or or the other matter?" gurgllngly asked the face In the night cap. "Both!" replied the apprentice, aome what confused but laughing with Milly us the ghost-llke object disappeared be hind the cloning door visibly shaking with merriment. lYrhaps an hour more had passed In that delicious, quiet and tender restless ncss of love, of a love that was full, sincere and perfect now, with all the asperities of the former daya gone and only the ordinary happy trust of com mon people' remaining, when an ex plosion was heard that shook the old tenement until It rattled and Jingled like a merryandrew, and a rumble and ronr as of the voices of despairing thousands flooded over the little court into the vestmakcr'a home; while above it all, mingled with the rapid Tailing of burning brands upon the silvering shingles, came those shouts which car ried with them such terrible meaning: "There is no hope!" and "The city Is doomed!" In those hours, so memorable that there Is scarcely a spot under the sun where some part of their awful story has not been told; In those hours of sudden fear, of heart-rending agony and terrlblo death, there was but one thing left for this little family, as for countless families, to do, and that was to Instantly endeavor to save their lives, If possible, and leave all else be hind. Almost before the shock of the ex plosion had subsided, showers of brands were tumbling around the eaves of the old tenements forming the little old court, and serpents of flame were wrlth Ing in and out among the timber In a horribly fantastic way. It might have grown brighter and brighter for where does It not where love exists? as they had sat there, and some dim consciousness of It all might have come upon them; but It was not until now that a full know ledge of what was In Jhat cry, "The city is doomed!" was realized; and, as If moved by a single impulse, they rushed to the vcslmaker's room and almost dragged the horrified couple out of their beds. Deathly white, John Hicks groped his way tremblingly to the great easy chair, holding It as a dear friend's hands for the last time. Great tears of anguish rolled from his eyes, and as he, pitifully looked around the little place whore there had been such happy.happy days, where so much that his long life had gathered was stored, It seemed as though his distracted heart must break. "Mother, mother! Milly, Milly! How can we leave it?" he cried in frenzied despair. Mother managed in some way to moan that the Lord would provide, while they were compelled to almost tear the vestmaker from the spot; and as, half-crazed and wholly desolate, they sped from the little nest, he agon lzediy clutched backward towards It with his rough working hands, as did thousands upon thousands of others that dolorous night, moaning piteously again and again: "Dear, dear old home! good-bye!" And now, if never before and if never agaVn, the vestmaker's apprentice was given an opportunity to show what manner of a man he was. It was the one and only out-doors prayer meeting- Chicago had ever known; and the abject conditions en forced by terror took form and aspect as fantastic and horrible as the sub jects were almost numberless and far separate In circumstance. Crowded, torn, forced forward by re sistless streams of frantic refugees, or thrown aside with a blow or a curse; falling from exhaustion and suffocation and spurred by the feet of others until roused again by despair; they fought their fight with death all that dreadful night, and struggled for this dear life of ours as only despairing bouIs can show their desperate might. Then the morning came, more terri ble in its sickly glare than the red glory of the night, driving the witless thous ands over and beyond the river and Into the cold waters of the lake; and there, on the sands, In and out of the surf, In turn frozen and. blistered, all but dead from physical fatigue and mental sufferlng--they saw their be loved city go down like a bunch of reeds, knowing no earthly hope be yond. As that fateful day dragged on, they were driven, driven onwards; and when the flames and the shadows of the night struggled for mastery they were forced pitilessly from each halting place. At last the old French cemetery was reached; and stumbling among the neglected graves, on which were al ready flung thousands of exhausted suf ferers, the apprentice led, carried and dragged his charges to the foot of a mound, on which stood a large vault, filled with lost and moaning children, guarded by a single determined sentinel who kept-the almost frantic beseigers away with a desparate success which attracted Ned's attention even in his miserable distraction. "Packed full of little ones! And, by the Eternal ! I'll brain the first ruffian of you that attempts to enter!" he would shout, while frantically swing ing his club about him. It was honest Bob White, ragged, blistered and bruised, who was succor ing every wailing child that fled that way and thus heroically defending them. Realizing it all, Watson rushed upon him with a "God bless you,- Bob unheeding the stinging blow from Bob's club, but grasping him In his arms and shedding the first tears that had wet his eyes forv many a year; and they did him a world of good as he after wards manfully confessed. "Oh, but hasn't Chicago got up the 'boss' fire though?" exclaimed Bob pantingly as he recognized his friend, "But who is, that with you?; The little vest" "Yes, Bob, and the big ones, too. More dead than alive, though! But for heav en's sake, as I have now a greater mo tive than ever for remaining Incog. Mo the old folks, as you value my friend ship, call me Edwards!" Through long ' habit Bob raised his qutezers, from which the glasses had hours before been shivered, and) gazing for a moment aiscourageaiy at Watson, said amusingly: , .-. "Bad as ever! Bad as .ever, N Ed wards!" -: , .' But the oharging upon his temporary orphan asylum became too heavy to ad mit of speculations upon his friend's de pravity, and he returned to the un equal conflict with a hearty invitation! to Ned to bring up nis "relatives." And in- a. few moments more - the, terror stricken family, was safely housed from' the relentless storm of Are; and all that second night of flame snd woe they slept as they had never slept before, while the old friends, still guarding the vault door, watched over and protected them. A few days after the great Chicago fire there were strange movements among the living occupants of the old French burying ground. Edwards ex cused himself one morning with the avowed object of securing some sort of a home for the winter, which was all but upon them. Milly followed soon af ter with some plausible excuse for her absence; and Bob White, last of all and looking uncomfortably conscious, short ly disappeared with expressed formida ble purpose of "working the Belief so ciety for a hatful or two of coal!" Bo John Hicks, who all his life time had prided himself upon his Independ ence of riches and fought out the prin ciple manfully, sat there among the dead, holding mother's true hand, al most as listless and helpless as his own now, and said never a word of the meaning words that were In his heart to say. An hour or two had passed after Bob's departure, when the old people were startled from their stupor by the rum bling of a carriage which was rapidly driven up to the vault door; and Bob himself, gorgeously arrayed and chuck ling under his breath, "Cruelly Jolly, by Jupiter!" with all the airs of a lackey handed the bid vestmaker the following note: "Mr. and Mrs. Watson request the pleasure of your company to dinner at their residence, No. Michigan ave nue, at 1 p. m., to-day. Your daughter Mildred, Mr. Edwards and Mr. White will be present. Mr. and Mrs. Hicks, Old French Cem etery, October 15, 1871." Bob afterwards observed with tears In his eyes when recounting the affair, that he could not bear their great be wilderment, and so he Just hurried them into their carriage and leaped up on the box with the driver to escape explanations and the piteous wonder In their eyes; and away they were whirled over the river and ln(o the "burned district," where thousands up on thousands of workmen filled the still smoking streets and hung upon the walls of the already swiftly re building city; and, passing all this, on they swept up the avenue for some distance, until a handsome mansion was reached. Here the dear old couple were rushed up the broad steps, held close, ecstatically close, in the arms of Milly and Ned Watson; kissed and hugged and torn until there was no strength left in them; and then dragged into their own rooms as rapidly as they had been dragged out of their burning home such a little time (but it seemed such centuries!) before; and shut In with a slam and commands of mock severity, after which Mlily and Ned disappeared in each other's arms again and again, laughing and crying alternately, Bob meantime per: forming a wild pirouette and hllaridus ly swearing it was the happiest day of his life. Oh, how little Milly fluttered and whirled about the house like an intoxi cated butterfly in a splendid garden, wringing her hands and Impatiently watching the minute hand of the dainty mantel clock that crept around the dial so very slow,ly! And when time enough had been glvn her parents their par ents now! to collect their scattered thoughts and prepare themselves for dinner, as she had ordered them to do, how she flew to their door and rapped and buzzed and fluttered aud sang un til they finally appeared, fresher and younger by years for the great joy that had come upon them, and then placed her arms akimbo to announce after the manner of old "Ef ye plase, mum, dinner's afther waitin'!" while Ned and Bob, looking upon It all in a kind of wild 'and radiant delirium, bumped their heads crazily together and shook hands fraternally afterward. And the neighbors those just arid true chroniclers of local history unite in saying that there is not a dearer old gentleman or a sweeter old lady, a prettier or more loving wife, a tenderer husband or truer .friend, than can any day be found at the home of the vest maker's apprentice. TOOTBAIZ, T. X. C. A. Last Might's Meeting Turned Into an In dignation Meeting The Disappointed Crowd Organizes a Team Out on the Side walk. The notice that a meeting of the can didates for a football team to repre sent the Young Men's Christian associa tion of this city brought out a big at tendance last evening. The meeting was called to order at 8:0j by Director Thompson. After a few preliminary remarks hes tated that tere could be no business brought before the meet ing, as the directors had voted Thurs day afternoon that arrangements to organize a football team must be aban doned for a few weeks at least. It was an Indignant room fulj of foot ball adherents that listened to these remarks. It seems that for a number of days back a quartet of young men have been enthusiastic over forming a team and they came to form a team second to none of the association In the state. When, therefore, the meet ing was called last nlnght there was a disappointed crowd of young men. Af ter a few remarks by those present the meeting was adjourned, but only for a few minutes, for as soon as the sidewalk was reached It was the wish of those present to organize a-football team, even if It did not represent the Y. Jt, c. a. ' .-: '-.,' ...- A room was Soon obtained a few doors below and the meeting called to order. Sims Embler was elected permanent manager and the captain will be elected later. After discussion the name of "Elm City" was adopted. It is pre-i posed to make it a representative team of the city, arranging for games with the principal teams of the slate.

At the people's service In the evening the sermon will be by Rev. Dryden W; Phelps of ths city.

The event of the day In financial and stock circles was the reduction In the Rock Island quar terly dividend from 1 to Vi per cent. The opinion had prevailed In some quarters for some time that the direc tors would bo able to see their way clear to maintain ths usual rate, al though President Cable's utterances of late should have prepared the financial community for to-day's action of the directors. The street, however, has beon operating In the stock of late on the theory that the Burlington ana Qulncy's policy would be followed, and as a result, when the official announce ment of the reduction was made there was ar ush to sell. The stock early In tho day was bid up VA to 65, but when the action of the directors was promul gated the price broke to 60 under heavyiofferlngs. The sales reached 39,- 600 shurcs, a very heavy total for this week. The other grangers were Inclined to firmness during the morning session, but the break of five points in Rock Island led to heavy realizations and short selling, and 8t. Paul fell from 1 to 65, Burlington and Qulncy 1T to 74', Northwest 1 to lOaVfc. These stocks assumed a more prominent position In the trading nnd figured for 84,700 shares In a total of 221,733 shares for the entire list. In a general way the market opened easier owing to realization In Chicago Gas and American Sugar, but sales subsequently showed a tendency to im prove until the grangers broke. Chicago Gas, Louisville and Nashville, and Gen eral Electric presented a firm front. The Levin litigation seems to have dropped out of sight, and the stock which was forced down to 67Vi on the announce ment of the BUlt has recovered to 71 71. In the closing dealings the pressure against the western shares exerted an unfavorable Influence, and the market let off weak In tone. Net changes show losses of to 3 per cent.. Rock Is land leading. Lead gained and Elec tric for the day. Linseed Oil lost a point, having sold down to 15. The bond market was strong. Sales were $998,000.
