When I wish to hurl an epithet of
withering contempt at ft man laughed
bhy 1 ah til call him a misogynist
That night Nolly stolo away front
among lho dancers and entered the
ioncrals little parlor filled with tho
sweotshalincssof tho summer otonlng
riicro wcro two clgara that shono liko
red stars and tho old man and tho
Colonel wcro telling campaigning
stories fighting their battles over
ngaln lho deep sonorous volco ot
the Colonel wont on stoadily fur half
an hour Ho used tho best and tersest
1 nglish and lho picture ho drow was
graphlo mid spirited It was an ac
count of a very daring exploit in which
ho had taken the principal part but in
tho recital ho kept himself out of sight
Thero was a slight rustle of soft
draperies from tho sofa
Why 1uss said tho Goncrai is
that you I thought you wero dancing
I did not caro about dancing to
night said Nolly ns sho came slowly
llrlng me tho candlo child Ho
bad not spoken to her so kindly for
Nellj brought tho candle and as sho
wciVasColoncl tutned his back and
< out of tho window Sho was ail
white and there was a bunch of for
getmo nots In tho bosom of her dress
Sho put up her faco to be klscd Ilka a
petted and spoiled child
Lovo menlittlo tonight Uncle
she whispered I am as bluo as I can
be The old man could not help kiss
ing her fondly and stroking her hair
and its ho did so tho little bunch of for
getmenots fell oul When Nelly had
left tho room the Colonel picked them
up unseen and put them somewhero
Inside his coat
Ioor Nolly a fair weathor did not last
long The next afternoon the old Gen
cral sent for her li a towering rage
his face looking quito apoplectic
Sit down thoro ho said pointing
to a chair opposite and Nelly oboyod
bat Is this I hear about your bolng
engaged to that idiotic young Del
I dont know sir
And you doiit know eried the old
General that he Is brainless fooUnd
an unprincipled knavo His father ts ft
frightened by threats I havo tho blood
of the Mortimers in my veins nndsho
swept proudly out of tho room
Nolly carried her sun hat in her hand
it pretty broad brimmed Irfghorn
trliniuod wilh trailing vinos Drj ejed
and palf with her small mouth set in a
rigid line sho walked swlftlj down tho
path that led lo tho laurel wood but
sho had no more than reached the shade
wlicnjoung Detmold sprang into tho
path beforo her
Oh Nellj dearest Nelly ho be

Stop cried Nollj imperiously
mid listen to what I havo to say to

faeo beaming with happiness
1 am so glad to find jott hero
ftloncl said Tie lor dftjiJ I hao
sought an opportunity to speak
Dont say It cried Nelly with
tragic despair let mo speak to you
1 ant ft poor girl and it is all a mistake
about mj being nn heiress I ho Gen

Miss Mortimer exclaimed tho
1iofessor in a pained and reproachful
volee iiow could jou think mo so
mercenaryP I havo loted jou for jour

Dont dont cried Nelly In plain
tio tones iou aro ft good man
worlds aboto me but I could not mar

Sho ran from him abruptly and dash
ed Into tho thlek woods farther ftnd
farther deeper and deopc losing
breath then stopping to listen If sho
wcro followed Sho was in ft strango
place whero largo somber trees grow
It was late tn tho afternoon lho sun
was setting tho twilight gathering
around her when Nelly rested on a
mossy log and lo tnt d against a trco
trunk Willi her feet In tho ferns Sho
w as sobbing becauso sho foil utterly
miserable dejected and abandunod
And stealthily the night tame on Sud
denly thero wo u crunching and crack

sprang up with a little scream

Nelly tried to hldo her tear stained

Colonel Hawlcy sho answered and
It ts unnecessary for jou to impose so
dlsugreoahlo a task upon yourself I

Miss Mortimer said he Ignoring
this speech I soo that you Into been
weeping and know that you havo quar
reled with jour unclo lio was on tho
point of doing you ft great wrong Hut
let mo rellovo your mind In regard to
tho monoj I havo roasoncd with hint
and tho now will has been destroyed
You aro still the heiress and will al

And ho had given tho money to

Why do you askP It Is all jours
now Not a penny ot It shall bo taken

I hate tho money criod Nelly pas
sionately And jou bellovol could

of lho loss of some paltry thousands
llutwhyolso should you grlevo
Hao I not troubles of my own
I nm powerloss Miss Mortimer to
discover tnoni
You despise me sho criod You
think I am ft vain shallow frholous
creuturo incnpablo of appreciating no

Ho turned away In the dusk and was
silent or a moment Can It bo that
you wish to torture mo ho said tha

with tho hearts of men Havo you
guessed that I knod you against my vlll
ngaiust my reason and lho deepest crttfc

Nellj gafo a cry that sccmod to

murmured Though I aflected to

When tho two walked bac o tho ho

Virginia City Nov has sixteen faro
games all situated In C Street at the
rear of principal saloons The propri
etor of one of the most flourishing faro
banks says that tho oxpenscs of running
too games exclusive of license foot up
at 827100 n year rrom the first to
tho fifteenth of tho month tho timo at
which tho miners aro Hush most of the
games run threo shifts of eight hours
each thus employing six dealers and
threo case keepers After tho middle
of tho month tho business slackens and
only one or two of tho games runs moro
than two shifts Everybantpayayear

fortablo total of JS400
A popular delusion prevails that faro
Is conducted on tho square In Vir
ginia Tho fact that tho owners ot
the games lire as a general thing la
about as handsome houses as can be
seen In tho city and that they aro
themsches behind fast horses In C
Street counts for nothing with the
gambling Comstockcr who invariably
has his system nearly perfected
and Is suro to bust tho game before

games have been cleaned out They

50000 to 100000 and oneinstltutlon
