AUTHOR OF "THE TRACK OF A STORM." 4 i (COPYRIGHT, 1897, PART I. "You nave been in Cuba before, I think." It was the editor of the Univcr.se who 6poke, as lie half turned his pivot chair and looked me over with a critical stare of inquiry. The question was natural taiough, as I had oomc to him with a special lecommcndation for that very rea son, and yet I felt the blood bound more rapidly through my veins at the simple inquiry. Been in Cuba before? I should think so. IIow many times had I made the 'assertion during the last few months, I wonder? And why was it that the question so quietly asked by the stout, comrortabk-looking man with the gray hair and bushy gra y eyebrows, underwhich lurked those keen, inquiring eyes, should have affected me so much? It was like the sudden flash of a lime light through a magic lantern, for, as lie spoke, there arose before me again the Bay ot Havana, sparkling in the sun, with its white houses and its green trees, uud, above all, one particular house, stand ing alone, and Just visible as it nestled in its IK) wer ot tropical foliage. Had I been there, Indeed? Rather he might have asked where else had I been that was eo well remembered, or came, back so often to my mind? Foolish, you will say, ot course? I suppose it was. Consider that I was only twenty-four years old, ud that there was warm, Southern blood In my veins. "Yes, sir," I said, for the vision had been only momentary; 'I was there for nearly eighteen months." "You know something or the place and the people, then, I Buppose. Do you speak Spanish?" W. G J. U. DEMONSTRATION The Local Organization to Hold Interesting Services. FINE PROGRAM ARRANGED The Meeting to He Ueld at Uamliue Church Tonight The General OX ficer.s to Participate Congress man Morse Will Speak on "The O utloo k" Other Addresses. The demonstration meetingof the District W. C. T. D., to be lield tonight at Hamline Church, will be one of the most interesting events in the annals of the organization, both from a spectacular and intellectual point of view. A.t 7:30 o'clock the proces sion, led by the general officers and the vested " Y" choir, will proceed fb .the audience room, accompanied by the Loyal Temperance Legion, Mrs. S. B. Maine, superintendent, and the Young "Wage earners' Club, Mrs. Nellie II. 13radley. su perintendent. When all have reached the places assigned them the opening exer cises will begin by the recitation of the District motlo, '"For God and borne uud na tive land loyal unto death." This will be followed by the District song. Mrs. M. E. Hartsock will conduct the devotional exercises, which will consist in part of a responsive Scripture lesson read from prepared cards, the superintendent leading and the audience responding. Rev. Dr. Stricklen, pastor of Hamline Church, will give a very brief address of welcome and Hon. Elijah A. Morse, of Massachusetts, will speak for ten minutes on "The Out look." The "Y's" will be represented on the program by Miss Mary Drown, Miss Minnie Rynex, Miss Opal Johnson, and Miss Hattie Horner. These ladies will occupy one minute each in discussing the following topics, respectively: "The Y'sinthe United States;" "The Y's in the District or Columbia;" "The Work of the Y's in the United States;" "The "Work of the Y's in the District of Columbia." Mr. Charles E. Shimp, the youthful presi dent of the Young Wage-earners' Club, will take four minutes to tell of the work among the messenger boys. Between Mr. Slump's speech and the next uumber will be an interlude of a minute or two, and how this time is to be occupied is a state Becret. The Loyal Temperance Legion will be next hi evidence and to the accompaniment or waving flags and banner.-, will give the District motto and rallying cry. Saloons, saloons, saloons must go, Go, go, when we grow ; Cluug-a-Iang! Hear their knell; District of Columbia. L. T. L." Mrs. R.E Lawson.distrlctsuperintendcnt of work among colored people, will repre sent her department in an appropriate and attractive manner. District Commissioner Hon. John W RdSs will be unable to be present, but sends his greetings in a very coidial letter that will be read to the audience, as also will a letter prepared by Miss Frances K. Wil lard for the occasion. The vested "Y" choir. Miss Sadie Drown, director, will furnish the music, and it will bo some thing worth hearing. Mrs. Margaret Dye Ellis, national superintendent of the de partment of legislation, will speak on "Responsibilities." The various "W. C. T U. organizations are urgently requested to nseemble at 6.30 sharp, in order to have a rehearsal before the audience gathers. "THE FAIREST' OF THE FAIR." The Rev. Dr. Tnl mage's Eloquent Sermon Descriptive of Christ. Rev. T. DeWitt Talma ge chose for his text yesterday Solomon's Song, oth and 10th, "He is altogether lovely."' Mr. Talmage said that beyond doubt Christ was beautitul in form and feature. However artists may disagree in their de lineations enc tiling is poMtive and be yond controversy. His was a soulful face. It was impossible that a disposition like Christ's should not have demonstrated it self in His physiognomy. Not only was Ctirist altogether lovely in His countenance, but lovely in His habits. He was cleanly in His habits. Sobriety was also an established habit of His life. Domesticity was also His habit. Furthermore, He was lovely in nis sym pathies. That verse, "Jesus wept," is to me the longest and grandest in the Rible. He wants all the sick and troubled and weary to loan against Him, and He says, "Lean hard, if you love me, lean hard." Aye, He is close by with His sympathetic help. ... OR , BY HUGH H. LUSK.) "Speak Spanish?" This time It was the soft liquid sounds of a sweet voice that seemed to ring faintly like a far-off echo in my ear as I replied: "Yes; I speak the language fairly well, I believe'." The editor glanced at the letter which lay open on the table before him. "Col. Walker tells me you would be willing to take a trip to the island again, on a special mission. You have friends among the revo lutionary paity, he says." "A good many, I understand, as well as in the capital Itself." The editor looked me over once more, as if finally making up his mind as to my suit ability; he glanced once more at the letter before him, and then, sa it he had decided, he turned to me with a different expres sion on his face, as he said: ""Well, I guess you ought to be able to do what we want, and, from what the colonel says of you, I fancy you're the sort of a man we wantto dolt." The lesult of it was that, after an hour's Interview, I left the office ot the Universe under an engagement to pro ceed to Cuba on board a small steamer that was privately chartered for the conveyance of warlike stores to the rev olutionary party on the island In other words, a filibuster. I could have wished for nothing better at the moment. As I have said already", I was young, and, as I have admitted, I was a little hot-blooded. Thecxpedltlonhadallthecnarmsofnovelty and adventure to recommend it. I was to be well paid for undertaking it, and it would at least give me a chance of possi bly being once more in Havana and of pay ing arothcr visit to the white house -which in imagination I had seen glistening among the trees. As I left the office that afternoon I seemed to myself to walk on air. The day chanced to be a dull one, yet I felt J-the warmth of a tropical sunshine in MU. DAVIS' CONFIRMATION". Senator Davis, of Minnesota, Said to 'Favor It. If the Senate Committee on Judiciary refuses to vote for the confirmation of Henry E. Davis," suid Senator Lindsay, a member of the committee, "the matter will not stop there. We will ask that it be taken before the full Senate on un adverse report." Senator Lindsay expressed the hope that a favorable report would be made on the nomination. He disclaimed any knowl edge as to how the Republican members of the committee stood on the question, but was inclined to believe that a sufficieut number would be found in favor of con firmation. It was said last night that Senator Davis of Minnesota would vote with Messrs. Hill, Lindsay, and Vilas lor confirmation. If that is tiue Mr. Davis will lack but two votes of a majority of the committee now present in the city. THE LEADING SOCIAL EVENT The Washington Assembly Tonight Will Be Well Attended.

I had really no time for dream ing, however, as the opportunity was one that might not soon occur again, and I had to be ready to sail that very night. Fortunately my own affairs required but little arranging. To collect and pack a few necessaries of my own, and to pur chase a few that were likely to be needed on such an expedition, could easily be accomplished even in the short time at my disposal. Before 9 o'clock, the hour named by nVy friend, the editor, I lound myself, traveling bag in hand, walking quickly through bevcral waterside streets unfa miliar to me, which I had been instructed would lead me to the pier from which I was to start. It was raining slightly, and there wcie but few people in the stieets. I felt tomehow, as I passed down the echoing sidewalk, that this was fortunate, and I found myself glancing suspiciously from side to side as I went. More than once I felt inclined to laugh at myself as I recognized how thoroughly I had entered into the spirit of the part, and, even here in this great American city, was rehearsing the role of a conspiratoragamst the author ities iu Cuba. I emerged from the narrow street at last, and could see the masts of ves sels looming up darkly in fiont, while I caught a glimpse of dark water between, that moved slowly without a Sound in the shadow. 1 advanced a few steps, peering into the darkness, in search of some one Ho Came Directly Toward Me. A MKMORIAI.,, SERVICE. i ' i iH A Tribute to thc-Menory o Miss Naunimiu The memorial servicefor Miss Kate E. Nauman was held Hi the Lutheran Memorial Church last evening. Ml8s Nauman was a life-long resident or "Washington, but died in Harrisburg, Pa. Thur&uay, January 28. A.s an active member dp the Christian En deavor Society she wrimwldely beloved. The service was aJ'JbvautifuI tribute to the memory of a noble "yonng woman. Rev. Dr. Butler made an ,-fddresa on her church life, with the text, "Ever ready for duty." He was -followed by the Sunday-school superintendent and her Sunday-school class. Mr. Robert E. Frazior, the patent attorney, by whom she was employed as a stenographer, rendered a tribute of praise for the truly noble character which dig nified the position in which she served. Her favorite hymns were sung and music was rendered by a quartet of her asso ciates. Bright and happy under all circum stances, was chmacteristic of a character best fitted to unfold in loveliness in the kingdom of holy spirits and iu the pres ence of her God. Ambitious and perse vering, with a sweet dignity and charm of manner, she was withall an unselfish, tletoted daughter, sister, and friend. "THE PRODIGAL, SON." Illustrated Lecture at the Church of Our Father. "The Prodigal Son" was the subject or the lecture last night, in the illustrated series being given every .Sunday even ing, at the Church or Our Father. The church was crowded, and many were turned away, unable to lind seats. Rev. "W. W. Curry told the story In simple but expressive language, carefully following the young man's departure from his father's house, his rccklebs career and the loss of his money, to his final degrada tion and return home, ragged, foot sore and weary. Mr M. E. P. Murray managed the stereoptieon. The views were appropriate and beautiful, and added charm to the story. The lecture was fol lowed by a solo, "Where Is My Wandering Boy Tonight," which was also illustrated by stereoptieon views. There will be ten more lectures in this series. The subjects have not yet been decided upon, but will be announced iu due time. MISSIONS AND PARSONAGES The Work of the Ladies of the II. E. Church South. They Have Undertaken to Raise $20,- 000 In a "Year Entertaining Addresses I-ast Night. The Parsonage and Home Mission So ciety of the M. E. Church, South, has un dertaken at the request of the national of ficers to raise during this year a fund of $20,000 with which to endow a school that is located among the mountaineers of Kentucky. The ladies of the auxiliary so ciety conmvted with the Mount Vernon Place M. E. Church held a meeting last evening to take the Initiatory steps toward raising a share of tha"t fund. Mrs. Behler, wire of Lieut. W.H. Buhlcr, presided-, ami there wen- veverarenteitaining addresses by ladies enlisted in the work. Mrs. J. T. Williams,' conference district secretary or the organization, resident of Alexandria, was the first to speak. She told of the methods employed to raise funds and the results' of the society's field work. Mrs. Street, or namlino M. E. Church, or this city, mode an address outlining the local work among the poor or the city. She commended the manual train ing school system as a valuable means or instruction. Her remarks were also directed to the subject or rescuing tiie foreigners in the city from the supersti tions of their previous" environments, and ilso to the relief work made so conspicu ously necessary by the recent cold weather. Mrs. Behler thou made an eloquent ap peal for assistance in the work of the auxiliary. It has but forty members, she said, but the society hoped to be able to make a substantial donation to the 520,000 ruud, n decennial offering, and to aid the 1G.000 women of the general so ciety in endowing the school, an institu tion now depending alone upon voluntary contributions. A lady manager or the society announced that Mrs. Canter, wire of the pastor of Mount Veinon Church, had been made a member or the society. Mr. Canter, who was present, opened and closed the exercises, and prior to announcing the collection, took occasion to warmly com mend the work the ladies had undertaken to do. who might tell me whether this was Benton's wharf, but the place appeared to be deserted. A glimmering light from one of the vessels moored alongside was thConly thing that suggested life, and I was In the very act or debating whether I ought to venture on an inquiry there, when my car caught the sound of a footstep. It was light and rapid, yet not loud the footstep, I thought to my self, of a sailor, or of somebody not t anxious to attract attention to his move ments. In ai:oiher second or two I could see his shadowy figure disengage itself from the blacker shadows of the 1 oubes and come toward me across the open ground. I had little doubt that his quick eyes had seen me, even before I made him out, for he came directly towaid me without any appearance ot hesitation. I waited until he came quite near before making any sign, and it was not until he was within a yard, or two thatl spoke. "Can you tell me,' I said in a low tone, "whether this is Benson's wharf?" "Well, stranger,", he. said pleasantly, "they tell me that's, the name, but I never was here in my life before half an hour ago myself." His voice was sof and almost musical, and he spoke with .a slight drawl, char acteristic of some of,' the Southern States. I hesitated for a moinent, and then I said: "I was looking for Benson's wharf, because I was told j'hould find a boat there about 9 o'clock r" "A boat going ofC ttf the Enterprize?" he broke in quickly. "I thought as much. They told me half-past eight, and I've kept the boat waiting' till I was tired. Come along now," he .continued; "there is no time to lose. The. moon will be up in two hours, and we must be well under way before that, if we mean to drop down without too many eyes on our movements." There was something hearty cvea in the low tone in which he spoke, and I fol lowed him readily along the dusky wharf. Looking o er, I saw what seemed to be a steam launch lying alongside a small rlight of steps that went down nearly to the water, although Judging by the num ber of hteps that were bare, the tide ap peared to below. My .companion whistled twice, and then, taking my traveling bag from me, said, good-naturedly: "You'll want all the sea legs you've got going down, here in the dark, so you'd better let me have this." I accepted his offer, and managed to find my way down the slippery stairs, and on board the little craft which swayed gently up and down atthe bottom. There seemed to be several seamen ou loard, besides a heap of boxes and parcels, which I took to be provisions, PEARLS FROMJHE PULPIT Epitome of Sermons Delivered in Washington Yesterday.

Man's Responsibility to God. "ira man try to shirk the responsibility of his sin and cast the blame and burden on his father, I say shame on him. To them I leel like burying tell it to the marines, for theyare unworthy to be honored among men. It is a fact, however, that young men are withheld and dis couraged from accepting and following this calling, and for this some parents are to be blamed." Rev. Dr. Wallace Radcliffe, New York Avenue Presbyterian Church. ''Ever since the French revolution men have made themselves slaves to what they thought truth, In social, political, personal and religious life. But we are not freed from the power of capital by hating and denouncing it, nor from the church by tlrading against creed and forms, for ev ery bitter, word "betrays the fact that their Influence hampers and holds us." Rev. E. Bradford Leavitt, All Souls' Church. Obedience Hotter Thau Knowledge. "Obedience to the Divine will is the best thing in lire, while the gravest error is to exalt knowledge above obedience. Men die and are damned every day who know, but never obey." Rev. O. A. Brown, Foundry M. E. Church. Itelation With Jesus. "The relation between an earthly father and son may terminate at death, but the relation between ourselves and God re mains forever. Our relation with Jesus, who claims us as His children, should mickeu our faith. For if Jesus is our God, then He is able to save us. Weshould have no doubts." Rev. William Levering Devries, Pro-cathedral Church of St. Mark. now to lie Saved. "It rests with every man whether he will attain heaven or not. God has given it to everyone to decide whether he -will he saved. It you will it God -will save you, but if you will it not, can you expect to be saved? Democrats, Republicans, and Populists exert themselves to secure nominations Tor offices, but Jesus Christ nominates every man Tor heaven." Rev. Dr. Eastou, Eastern Presbyterian Church. Young People's Age of Christendom. "The time to influence life Is in our early years. Then we arc impressible and easily molded. Christiniiitj above all religions appeals to the young. The habit of prayer, Bible reading, church going and attendance at rehgioiib services generally should be eaily formed. This is the young people's age of Christendom." Rev. George S. Duncan, Eckington Pres byterian Church. The Time of Failures. "These are times in which failures are many, not only financial, but moral. Some .good man in whom you had confidence falls, and the crash is heard some dis tance around. Your soul is shocked at ttie spectacle. The view from your win dow of earthly experience Is painful. But turn now to the window looking toward Jerusalem, on the other side. See strength, beauty, wisdom, the law, purity, and all or good." Rov. Dr. S. B. Wilson. Grace Methodist Church.

Punster Yes, but only on pa j day. Com mercial Advertiser but my conductor quickly cleared a seat for me, and in another minute our fasten ings had been quietly cast off, and the gurgling splash of the screw told me that I had actually started on my adventure. I leaned back and watched the misty shore, with its moving diorama of shadowy masts and mysterious outlines of wharves and hulls, through which there twinkled They Certainly points of light, surrounded by halos of mist. Once fairly off, however, our little crait went well, and the shore, with Its ghostly masts and firefly sparkles, slid past us rapidly. Now and then a vessel at anchor In the stream loomed up with startling suddenness out of the mist, and then as quickly melted In the misty dark ness behind.

"I'll bring your traps aboard in a minute. Up you got" I grasped the unsteady ladder, and, fmdmgit easier-flan it looked, I reached the deck in a moment. The scene that met my eyes was aa ani mated one. There were plenty of lights, though none above the level of the bul warksand men were hurrying to and fro, carrying loads on their shoulders. It took some seconds to grow accustomed to the the light, but as soon as I did so I saw that goods were being transferred to our deck from that ot another steamer which lay alongside. There was no want of hands to do the work, and even by the misty light that flashed on them from the deck lan terns, I thought they looked very unlike the ordinary type of seamen or dock labor ers. I watched them with interest for a minute, from where I stood by the bul wark, and as I looked I could see tliattiieir task was completed.

"Come along, sir, and 111 show you your berth; it's not much ot a place, but it's the best we can do, and it won't be for long." rtollowcdmylatecornpanlondown a narrow companion staircaseinto a small, dingy saloon, and thence into a very small and still dingier sleeping berth, where lie Icrt me. There wa3 nothing to attract or detain me there, so I soon found my way to the deck again. Aa 1 stepped out, I felt the screw make its first turn, and I knew that we were off. I glanced around ia the darkness. Only a single lantern now glimmered on the deck, but cvea without It I could make out the general outlines. Where were the men I bad left there not five minutes bcrorc? A troop ot ghosts could not disappear more completely or silently. TO BE CONTINUED- Toe Brand of Oain. ?
