Is overtaken by a flood trom a bursted reservoir. He and another man, who Is half clad seek refuse In a hut, and Jeremiah wraDs his coat around his companion. After the flood subsides a bodi is lonnd which is Ideutlfled by the card cisc In the coat pocket as that or Jeremiah l'ennvcomequlck. Philip Pennycomequlck Is teleersphed Tor and arrives. A will is fonnd making balome Cusworth her uncle's heiress, but the document has been Invalidated b tearing off the signature. Mrs. Sldebottom declares that she will not respect the wishes of her dead half brother, as expressed In his will. In the mean time Jeremiah Pcnnvcomequlck, who was not drowned, has been picked up bra coal barge. Salome thinks she sees the Rhosl or Jeremiah Pennycomequlck In the house. Philip Penny comequlck takes charge of his uncle's mill and Insists that Salome and her mother shall remain with him in his uncle's house. Jeremiah Penny comequlck hears that he has been declared dead and determines to allow his relatives to remain In that belief while he spends a vear on the conti nent for his health. Mrs. Sldebottom refuses to csrryouta lolnt agreement made with Philip to Dar Salome .000 and therebv offends t'liilln. who declares lie will pay the whole amount him self, even lilt ruins the mill business, fealome is spun excited by seeing the figure ot a man wno looks like the supposedly dead Jeremiah Pennv comequlck. fcalome tells Philip that she will not accept the money. The latter thinks his aunt has influenced b&lome, and to checkmate Mrs. hide bottom lie proposes marriage to balome. who ac cepts him. thinking that he loves her. Jeremiah Pennvcomequlrk hears of the proposed marriage and Is much disquieted thereat, knowing that his reappearance at his home would force Philip to return to his drudgerv and penury as a lawyer's clerk. Philip confides to his mother-in-law that he hates harfbchoflcld. who Is rcponlble for his father's ruin, at which Mrs. Cusworth becomes confused and uneasv Jeremiah Is appioaclicd by Beaple Yeo, a fluent financier, who is about to start a health reort. Jeremiah thinks he has wen the gentleman, or his clothes, at least, somewhere before. Philip and Salome arc married very qnletlv and a happy year slips quickly by. Philip is blessed with a son, ol whom he Is verv proud. Mrs. bidebottom visits the spare chamber and sees a man lying there, but aures herself that It Is the doctor who is attending the baby. Philip finds the strange visitor to be Beaplc 1 eo, and at the same time discovers that Iteanle Veo and Earl bcbolleld are one, and the father of his wife. Philip refuses to become reconciled to his wire. Mrs. Cusn orth dies. CHAPTER XXXIIL Exile. Cays passed and the house had settled into formal ways. The meals were at the usual hours, to the minute. Philip went to the office at the usual time, and at the usual time re turned from it; everything had again entered into its routl .c as before. But the relations between husband and wife were not improved. They met at meals, rarely else. At table a con ventional conversation was maintained. Philip occupied his bachelor apartments and ex pressed no intention of leaving them. Beyond the formal inquiries after Salome's health in the morning, be took no interest in her condi tion of mind and body. He did not perceive that she still suffered, was becoming thin, pale and v tj. He could not have invented a more cruel torture than this daily life of chill inter course between them, and Salome f elf that it was becoming insupportable. She attended to the household duties. She looked after his comforts, saw that his room was properly dusted, that his pa pers, his books were always in the same place, that his clothing was in order, that strict punctuality was observed in all that con cerned him he accepted this as of course and was unaware that every element that con duced to his wellbelng was not present natur ally. He did not know that his wife entered his room when he was awav and rectified the little neglects and transpositions of the house maid; he did not know how much time, and how many tears were, given to his shirts and his socks and collars. He was unaware of the patient consideration devoted to the dinner, to insure that he should have an appetizing meal after his work in the office dunng the day. He I 'ETBADE FEATURES Better Tone to ProduceStuff Mov ing Out More Freely. WHEAT AND FLOUR TENDING DOWN Split Cowhides on Markets as Kangaroo and Calf Skins. STOCK OF HIDES STILL ACCUMULATING Office of PnTSBrmo Dispatch, Satubday. May 25. 1889. In produce lines the marked features of the week, have been the improved demand for choice creamery butter, new vegetables and fruit, and the drop in eggs. Eggs are slow at 2c per dozen below prices of last week, while good butter is active at 1 to 2c a pound higher figures. There has been no time as yet when good strawberries did not find readv customers at 16 to 20c, and plenty more than came would have been easily sold on Friday and Saturday. Good peas were also good stock. Notwith standing the wet days of the week, commission men report trade as satisfactory, and an im provement over last week. A leading jobber of cheese, butter and eggs said to-day: "It is a long while since our stock was so well cleaned up on Saturday." Prospects are good for another advance in butter next week, as markets here are bare, and closed very firm at the advance. One of the largest shippers advises us that he has been losing at prevailing rates of the past week, and will withhold stock until be can do better. Grain nnd liny. Markets give no signs of improvement, but the reverse. The promising prospects tor the new crops all over this country and in Europe, has a de pressing influence on trade. The signs for an abundant year of cereals were never better at this date. The only dangers to wheat not now past are rust and a wet harvest A leading . flour jobber reports sales more active this ;' ieek than last and the month of May better than April. Another says, "there is a great pressure from Minneapolis millers to unload flonr, in view of the extra profits for coming crop." A gentle- wflti. vliA travols ft cns Hn1 cairi fnlv "T I have never seen the time When the approach ing Harvest promised sucn large results in cereals, and it wonld not surprue me to see wheat droD to 60c a bushel next fall. Hoe Products. The feature of theprovision trade worthy of note is that hams have been Jc lower In Pitts burg than in the West While prices of all hog products continne so low that margins are all wiped out except on special cuts, a slight improvement in demand isreported by packers lor the week. Markets are steady to firm, and as stock is light in packers' hands there is a better tone to trade. Hogs closed in Chicago to-dav 510c higher thari yesterday, with S4 254 70as the range. Last week they touched a level 4050c below this figure. Hides and Calfskins. Stock continues to accumulate in the hands of dealers and markets give no signs of im provement Green calfskins never were as rinll and cheap as they are now. A skin which not many years ago would bring 50c to 60c now goes begging at 18c. The shoe manufacturer of this era is evidently figuring on bow much stock he can cut out of leather. As the split cowhide answers the same purpose of calfskins, and furnishes a much larger surface for the money, the temptation is too strong for the average conusmer, and call skins are less and less tn demand. The flanky part of the skin will not cut to any advantage, while there is nothing lost In tho split cowhide. A leading dealer and tanner on being asked if the new-fangled leather was up to the old said, "I know nothing In the leather line that equals the calfskin for foot wear, excepting the hip part of the horse hide. The reason whv it has been superseded is that It cannot be cnt to as good advantage, and in thee times of close margins and de pressed trade, this has become an Important factor to manufacturers." In the course of tho interview it was developed tbat a large amount of kancarno leather, so called, is made nut of split cowhides. If 'all tbat is sold in the voria's markets for kangaroo leather v, as the genu-ne stuff, the kangaroo would have long ago become an extinct specimen of the animal wuuu. - ' 1 I till jMlttll tlj&ll-jlll IMlTllf SJL--J -JtAlU.t PUBLIiHED.l RESERVED. did not entertain the suspicion that the regu larity of the house was only effected by con stant urgency and supervision. That there was a change in the relations of Philip and. his wife did not strike the outer world, which had not been invited by him pre viously to consider the nature and closeness of those relations. In the presence of others Philip was courteous and formal toward his wife now, but he had been courteous and formal toward her in public before. He had not called upon the neighbors and acquaint ances to rejoice with him because he had found domestic happiness, he did not Invite them now to lament with him because he had discovered it to be chimerical. He refused to Salome none of those atten tions which are required by common politeness; what she missed were those which spring out of real affection. His behavior to her in pub lic was unchanged, and he carried this manner into his private interviews with her. Such in terviews were now brief and business-like. He no longer spoke to her about what was past, he never referred to her father. He never allowed her to entertain the smallest hope that his behavior would change. Philip rarely spoke to a servant, never ex cept on business: and he was surprised one day when the nurse ventured to intrude on his privacy and ask leave to say something to him. Philip gave the required permission un graciously. Then the woman said, "Please, sir, the missus be that onconsiderate about hersen that she'd never think o' telling nobody about nowt that was wrong with her. Ana so, I dare say, you don't know, sir, that it is not all well wl' her. Shoo has sudden faintive's, and they come on ow'er often. Shoo makes light o't, but don't better of It. I sed to her, shoo ought to tell you. but shoo wouldn't. And, please, sir, shoo's a good missus, and too precious to be let slip through the fingers for not looking after what's amiss i'time. So sir I've made bould to say a word about it." Philip was surprised, even shocked. "I will see to It," he said, and then, "That will do." He took occasion to speak with Salome about her health, and now his eyes were opened to see how delicate she had become. Su'o admitted her fainting fits, but made light of them. . "I have been overtaxed, that is all, Philip. I shall soon be quite myself again." 'you ha e had a good deal of anxiety, no doubt, and that may account for it. Still it will be a satisfaction to have an opinion. Bo you care for Mr. Knight!" "Oh, no, Philip he is very clever, hut too young. I should not like to have Mr. Knight here about me. But I assure you, it is nothing! I mean there is nothing really the matter with me. It used to be said that I had all the physique of us two sisters, and Janet all the verve." "I wish you to have proper advice. You un derstand. I wish it" "Then, Philip, I will let anyone you like come and see me, or I will go to anyone you recom mend." "1 have no knowledge of doctors," he said al most contemptuously, "If I might have a choice," she hesitated. -Of course you may in reason." "There is Mr. JohnJJale: be wa dear Undo Jeremiah's best friend, 'and he is Janet's guardian. I always liked him, and he knows about us sisters. Besides I do want to see him and ask him what he thinks abont Janet; but he is a long way off, he is at Bridlington. If you think it would be extravagant sending so far, I would go gladly and see him. Indeed I daresay the journey will do me good." "Very well," said Philip, "I will telegraph for Mr. Dale." "And then," added Salome, if you do not ob ject, he can overhaul baby and see that the WEEKLY REVIEW, Important Rent Kstnln Denis A Square Offer to Those Objecting to Diamond Street Improvement Satur day' Oil nnd SlocK Quotations. There was nothing in the business situ ation last week to require special notice. Trading in all the leading commodities was of good volume. In the speculative mar kets stocks were dull and prices slightly shaded. The sales aggregated 8,897 shares. Petroleum put on a burst of activity and moved on a higher level of values. It closed steady. Sales of iron were fair, but prices were still unsatisfactory. Business in mort gages fell off somewhat as compared with previous weeks. The number placed on record was 184, representing 5327,000. The largest was for 63,000, placed Saturday. Kcal estate was active. Several important deals were closed up. The number of trans fers recorded was 247, and the amount of money involved $599,188. The prospect is for a good trade all summer and a boom in the fall. There was a report on Fourth avenue Satur d V that the McKelvy farm, above Edgewood, hal been sold to a syndicate of East Enders for about $3,000 an acre. Nobody seemed to know anything definite about it but some were dis posed to think there was good foundation for the report as the property has several times recently Deen mentioned in connection with a deal of some kind. It is well located, con venient to both Edgewood and Swlssvale, and if sub-divided and put on the market it would no doubt be quickly bought up. The tract con tains SO or 60 acres. There was an encouraging degree of activity in the building trade last week. The number of permits taken out was 56. The total cost of the bouses is estimated at $149,080. The largest permit was issued to the St Augustine Church congregation for a two-story brick building cost 25,300. The next largest was taken out Mrs. Calvin for five two-story brick houses Poplar alley, xrear Elm street in. the Seven ward. As usual, the majority ot the perm were for dwellings. There is'no doubt thht Pittsburg Is growing. The feeling in favor ot widening DiamoAd street is making good headway, notwithstand ing the objections of a few of tho property holders. Those who affect to think thatthe proposed improvement would ruin them jean 'sell immediately, for cash, at 50 per cent more than their property was worth 60 days ado, by calling on Black & Baird, Fourth avenueThis offer will hold good long enough to perrAit all objectors to avail themselves x its terms. A proposition so broad and fair, and involving so much money, could be made only on the as sumption well founded in this case, that the improvement would more than double values on the thoroughfare in question, it is the strongest argument the wldcners have brought to bear upon the subject When money talks, people listen. 9 . Within a few days there has been quite a re vival in the real estate market, sales being almost as numerous as at any previous time' this season. This is no doubt due to the abundance of idle capital, for which tne own ers can find no other equally safe and (profit able investment Money thus placed can be made available almost any time, and nearly always at a handsome gain. All resales re cently made have been at an advance over the original price. The demand is confined to no particular section, but extends to both cities and suburbs, and embraces all descriptions of property unimproved tracts having the call. , Local bankers were unable to report anything particularly new yesterday, but said every. thing in their line of business wis in good shape, and moving along smoothly, tfoutine lines were well up. Discounting was rather slack, but taking the week as a whole it was very good. There was no change inVates, and no scarcltv of small notes. As shown by the Clearing House report the gain over the cor responding week of last year was $L800,000.

I know quite well what is the matter with me. It is nothing that any doctor can cure." "What is it?" "I have bad a good deal to worry me, to make me unhappy, I cannot sleep, I am always, thinking. I can see no way out of the trouble If there were the tiniest thread to which I could lay hold, then I should be well but there is none. It reminds me of what I have read about the belief of the North American In dians have concerning their origin. They were, they say, once in a vast black abyss in the center of the earth, and there were tiny fibers hanging from the roof, and some of them laid hold of these libers, and following them came to the surface of the earth and saw the snn, but others never touched a depending thread, and they wander on in timeless dark ness, without a prospect, and without cogni zance of life." "Well-" "And I am like these, only with this pang, that I have been in the light. No there is no fiber hanging down for me." She spoke timid ly, and In a tone of half inquiry. He did not answer. "Philip, you must believe my word when T say that I never knew till the night before you heard It, that I was not what it had been given out I was." "We will not debate that matter again," said Philip sharply. "It can lead to nothing." "There Is then no fiber," she said sadly, and withdrew. John Sale arrived, bluff, good-natured, bois terous. "Hallo I what is the matter with youT" was his first salutatlou;and when he hadheard what her aliments of body were she made light of them to him he shook his head and said blunt ly, "That's not all it is mental. Now, then, what it is all aboutr "Mamma was taken suddenly ill and died; it was a dreadful shock to me. Then baby was unwell, and I had to watch him night and day; he would let no one else be with him." "But the expression of your face is changed, and neither your mother nor baby has done that. You are in some trouble. A doctor is a confessor. Come, what is up 7" . Then she told him not all, but a good deal. She told him who she was, and how she had discovered her origin that her father was the man who had started the swindle about Iodin opolis, bnt that Beaple Yeo was not his real name; he had assumed that in place of his true name, Schnfield." "What the scoundrel who did for .Nicholas Pennycomequlck T" Salome bowed her head. "I see it all," said Dale. "I never met that fellow Scbofield, but I knew Nicholas Penny comequlck, and I know bow he was mined, I had no idea that the fellow Yeo, whom I met at Bridlington, was the same. Now, my dear child, I understand more than you have told me. I shall not give you any medicine, but or der you away from Mergatroyd," "I cannot 1 cannot leave baby." 'Then take baby with you." Salome shook her head. bhe also saw that nothing would do her good save an escape from the crushing daily oppres sion of Philip's coldness and stiff courtesy. A day or two later she received a letter with a foreign postmark, and she tore it open eagerly, for she recognized her sister's hand writing. The letter was short. Janet complained of not getting any better; her strength was de serting her. And she added: "Oh, Salome, come to me, come to me if you can, and at once. He is here." There was no explanation as to who was im plied, bnt Salome understood. Her sister was ill. weak, and was pestered by the presence of that man that horrible man who was. their father. She went to Philip's door and tapped. She was at once admitted. "Philip," she said, "I refused to take Mr. Dale's advice on Tuesday. I will take it now if you will allow me. I have heard from Janet. She is ill." The tears came into her eyes. "She is very ill, and entreats me to fly to her without delay." She said nothing to him of who she had heard was with her sister. "I am quite willing that you should go," he said. Tne words were hard. The lack of feeling in them touched her to the quick.

Baby must do without me for a while, unless," she brightened, "unless you will allow me to take baby and nurse with me." "No." answered Philip, "on no account Go yourself, but I cannot entertain that other pro posal." She sighed. "Where is Janett" he asked. "At Andermatt-oa the B. Gothard, The air is bracing there." "Very well. You will want money. You shall have it" "And how long may I stay I" "That entirely remains with yourself. As far as I am concerned, I am indifferent" So Salome was to go- She was now filled with a feverish impatience to be off not that she cared for herself, that the change might do her good but because the leaving home would be to her agony, and she was desirous to have the pang over. She felt that she could not endure to live as she had of late, under the same roof with her husband and yet separated from him. loving him with her faithfuls sincere heart and meet ing with rebuff only guiltless, yet regarded as guilty, her self-justification disregarded, ber word treated as unworthy of credence. No, she could not endure the daily mortification. and she knew that it would be well for her to leave, hut for all that she knew that the leav ing home would be to her the acutest torture she could suffer. She must leave her dear child, uncertain when she would see it again. She did not iide from herself that if she left she left not to return till some change had taken place in Philip's feelings toward her. She could not return to undergo the same freezing process. But she raised no hopes on what she knew of Philip's character. As far as she was acquainted with it it was unbend ing. Salome had the simple faith which leads one to take a step that seems plain, without too close a questioning as to ultimate consequence. She had been told by the doctor whom she trusted that she must go away from Merga troyd. and immediately came the call of her sister. To her mind this was a a divine indica tion as to the course she must take, and she prepared accordingly to take it At the best of times it is not without misgiv ing and heartache that we leave home, if only- f or a holiday, and only for a few weeks; we dis cover fresh beauties in home, new attractions, things that require our presence and obstruct our departing steps. A certain vague fear al ways rises up lest we should never return, at least that when we return something should be changed that we value, something going wrong that we havelef t right some one face be miss ing that we hold to with infinite love. It is a qualm bred of the knowledge of the uncer tainty of all things in this most shifting w orld, a qualm that always makes itself felt on the eve of departure. With Salome this was more than a qualm; she was going, she knew not to what; she was going, she knew not for how long; and the future drew a gray. Impenetrable veil before her eyes she could not tell, should she return, to what that return would he. She did not reckon about her child. She could, she would not be separated from it but whether Philip would let the child go to her, or insist on her return to the child, she did not ask. The future must decide. Whatever she saw to be her duty that she would do. That was Sa lome's motive principle. She would do her duty anywhere, at any sacrifice; when she saw what her duty was. A cab was procured from the nearest town, tour miles distant, to take Salome to the sta tion. Oh, the Ust clasp of her babel The tearful eyes, the quivering mouth, the beating heart the inner anguish; and then ashe ran down stairs with her veil drawn over her face, Philip encountered her on the landing and offered her not his cheek, not his heart, hut his arm to take her to the cab. CHAPTER XXXIV. A Desolate House. Philip was restless all that day alter Salome had departed. He had remained at home in the morning to see her off, and he did not re turn to his work at the factory till after lunch. At the office, he found it impossible to fix his thoughts on the books and letters before him.

He saw her in. a corner of the rail way carriage, with her hands on ber lap, look ing out of the window, not to seo anything, but to hide her wet cheeks from her fellow passen gers. He caught himself wondering whether she had talceu sandwiches with her and a little bottle of sherry. When he traveled and he was called from home occasionally there was always a neat Jlttle package in white paper, and a tiny white Jlask, pressed on him. Had any of the servants thought of these things for Salome? That she had thought of them for herself was unlikely. When she reached town what would she do? Would the porters be at tentive? Would they take her wraps and little odds and ends, and see her into a cab? And would the flyman be civil, or would he seek to take advantage of a lone lady, especially one who looked ill and unhappy? Would not such an one become a prey to his rapacity, and be subject to rudeness? What sort of weather would Salome have for crossing the Channel ? She was going by Dover and Ostend, Brussels and the Grand Luxem bourg, to Strasburg; thence by Basle to Lucerne, and so on by boat and diligence to Andermatt How would she manage about change of money? Where effect an exchange ? She had never traveled abroad before ; how would she contrive aboutluggage ? What sort of French scholar was she ? Who would be her compan ions on the long night journey f rom Brussels to Strasburg ? What if she had to endure associa tiowwith vulgar, insolent objectionable travel ing comrades. Philip became hot, then cold. "I beg your pardon, sir," said the clerk, com ing to his desk. "Are you aware that you have subscribed that letter twice over, Yours trnly, P. Pennycomequlck ?" "So I have; I will write it again." "And, sir I beg pardon you havo directed this letter to Messrs. Brook & Co., Cotton Spinners, Andermatt Is that right?1 "I have made a mistake. I will write the ad dress again." At dinner, that evening, Philip was alone, the parlor maid waited. She stood a little way off, behind his chair, while he ate. He was conscious that she watched him at bis soup. that she was counting how many spoonfuls went Into his mouth, that he was not unob served when he added salt and pepper. She was down on his plate like a vulture on a dead camel, the moment be had taken bis last spoon ful. Probably she was finding it as embarrass ing standing watching bim eat as he found it eating with her watching. "Mary," said Philip, "did Mrs. Pennycome qulck have any refreshments with her when she left sandwiches and sherry?" "I beg our pardon, sir. I don't know. I will go and ask cook." She did know. Philip was sure she did, but made this an excuse to get out of the dimng room and its oppressive restraints to the free air of the kitchen, Presently she returned. "Well?" asked Philip. "Please, sir, no. Cook says she tried to press them on Missis, but Missis, sir, wouldn't have 'em. She said she'd have no appetite." "What is it?" asked Philip, as a dish was offered. "Curried rabbit sir." "Curried rabbit? No, thank you." Philip looked across the table, to the place hitherto occupied, by his wife. He had not been gracious, only coldly civil to her of late, but then now he would have been glad to have had someone opposite him to whom he Sould have been coldly civil; someone to whom e might have remarked that the weather had been bad, that the barometer was rising, that the political situation was so and so. Bother that womanl he meant the parlor maid. Then aloua, "What is it? Oh, veaL" He would have some veal. "Stuffing!" Obi the stuffing formed that brown wart at the side, did it? He tried to eat bis veal, but felt that the eye of Mary was on .the back of his head, that she was looking at the nape of his neck, and the hair there, and the collar button, and a little dust that lay on the collar of bis coat Philip had a mole on the nape of his neck, and he was convinced that this mole formed an object of the liveliest interest to Mary. She was watch ing the mole; when he opened his jaw the mole took a header and went under his collar; when he shut his mouth it rose above the col lar; while he was chewing, the mole danced on the borizon of his collar, to Mary'z infinite amusement white, 10c; globe, 12c; elaine, 15c; carnadine, HKc;ro aline. 14c SjVrups Corn syrups 2829c; choice sugar sjrup, 33S38c: prime sugar syrup, 3033c:strict ly prlme.'iS33a..'; new maple syrup, 90c.

Philip took wine, and as ha felt the glow of the sherry pass down his throat, he wondered whether Mary felt a glow of sympathy down her throat, occasioned by seeing him drink the sherry. Her presence was unbearable, and yet If he dismissed her how was he to be served? Til ask someone to dine with me to-morrOw night," he said to himself. Then he turned to Mary as she removed his plate, and said, "How is baby this afternoon? Does he fret much at bis mother's being away?" "I beg your pardon, sir, I don't know. Til run and ask nurse." Of course she knew, but she made this an excuse for getting out of the dining-room into the freer air of the nursery. Never, In all his life, bad Philip found him self more impatient of the silence imposed on him, more desirous to hear his own voice. In his lodgings he had eaten his meals alone a chop and some potatoes and he had had a book or a paper at his side while eating; the landlady or the slavie bad not stood in the rpom watching him, observing the parting in his hair behind his head, making fun of bis mole, impatient to dust his collar, In his lodgings he had drunk beer or London Cooper now be drank claret sherry, port; but be would have drunk even water if he might only have been alone. "No, thank you, no dessert!" He jumped up he was eager to leave the room. "Please, sir, any cheese?" "No, thank you. no cheese." He ran away from bis half-finished dinner to his own study, where be could be alone, avuy from the insufferable Mary. Then he rang the bell. "You may bring me up the claret and port here and the preserved ginger," ho ordered. Then thought he had acted absurdly, and would have countermanded the order had he not been ashamed to confess how unhinged he was. He sat in his own room, with his claret glass in bis hand, dreaming, looking into the fire. "Where was Salome pow? Was she think ing of home of her baby of of him?" Then he wondered whether she were cold, and hungry, and tired. She bad not slept the previous night She had been busy packing, or going in and out of baby's room, to kiss the little sleeping face, or to pray by the crib, or let the dew of her tears fall over it Philip stood up. He left his glass unfinished, and went upstairs to the nursery. He found the door ajar, and the room empty. The nurse had gone down for a talk in the kitchen no aoubt about Master, and Mary was telling her about bis mole, and the spots of dust on his collar. t He entered the nursery and stood by the crib, and looked at the sleeping child. Little Philip was now quite well again, and was very sound asleep. He was undoubtedly a Pennycomequlck. He had dark hair, and long dark eyelashes. But surely surely there was some trace of his mother in the tiny face. It could not be that he did not bear in him some thing of her, Philip looked intently at the child, and tried to find out in him some feature of bis wife. There, on this side of the crib, had Salomes hands rested that night when little Philip was ill. Philip, the father. Knew the exact spot where her hands bad rested and where her fore bead had leaned, with the re'd gold hair falling down over the side upon the bedding. Where the white left hand had clutched, with the gold ring sparkling on it there now Philip placed his han. and there streamed up to him from the crib of his child a magnetic influence that put him en rapport with his absent wife, brought to him a soothing sense of oneness with her who was far away, and filled his heart with regret and yearning. The child began to cry. Then Philip rang the bell, and when the nurse arrived, red and blowing t "How is it that you are not at four post?" he asked. "Please, sir, I only just ran down to warm up Dr. Ridge's Food for the baby," was the an swer. Philip descended to the study, and resumed his claret glass.

Some parties who were named as the princi pal buyers yesterday sold moderately to-day. Advices were received reporting rain in Texas and as harvesting is thought to be in progress there, the market strengthened some by these reports. Home markets were all easier. It was estimated that the visible supply would not vary much from 1,000,000 bushels to 1,200,000 bushels decrease A fair trade was reported in corn at a further decline in price. The weakening factor was the largo arrivals The market opened a shade under the closing prices of yesterday, declined c, became less active and ruled steady, clos ing xAa lower than yesterday.

In vain did he poke the fires of his wrath at the trickery of bis marriage, he could not convince himself that Salome had been privy to it; and If not privy Xa it, what right had he to treat her with the severity he had exercised? But not even then did it occur to him that the main element of bis wrath was supplied by his own wounded pride. The discovery of her parentage must bave been to Salome a crushing humiliation. What justification was there for his adding to ber burden by his reproaches and coldness? She could not undo the past unmake her relation ship. His anger, his resentment could not im prove the situation, could not shake the truth of the hateful fact that he was allied to so great a scoundrel. Though she had been married under a wrong name, that would not invalidate the marriage even if he wished it even If he wished it! Did be wish it? He thought about Uncle Jeremiah's will, and how that by it Salome had been left almost sole legatee: how that the mill and everything had been given to her and how that in a mys terious manner that will had been cancelled. The old haunting suspicion that bis aunt bad meddled with ana defaced the will returned. He thought ot her behavior when he allowed her to see that he entertained a suspicion; of her evasion of her promise; of her laxity of principle: and he could not shake off the thought that it wasquite possible that through her Salome bad been defrauded of her rights. If so, had he any right to complain if he bad been deceived? How did Mrs. Sldebottom show beside Salome? And he be. Philip had he shown in generous colors'either? It was said of that distinguished epicure, the Marquis de Cussy, "Iestomac da M. n'a jamais broncbe." and the same may be said of most consciences but not of all. As we have seen even Mrs. Sblebottom's conscience once felt a twinge at the same time when consciences generally do feel twinges, when too late to re dress wrong actions. So now did Philip, as he sat over the fire with his claret glass in his hand, become awaro that lie had acted with undue severity, and he spilt the claret on the floor. ' Next day Philip went to the old bedroom which he and his wifo had occupied till he changed his quarters. He found the house maid there, who seemed startled at seeing him enter. "Please, sir, Pm drawing down the blinds, because of the sun." "I will trouble you to leave the blinds up." said Philip. "I do not choose to have the house the room look as though someone in it were dexdj Here by the way, my rpom down stairs will needs thorough turn out I will re turn to this room: at all events for a time.'" "Very well, sir." She left the chamber. He stood in it and looked about bim. Salome had left everything tidy. Some of her drawers were open, not many Were locked. Most of her little private treasures bad been removed. Where was the photograph on a stand of Un cle Jeremiah? It bad no doubt been taken away by her. Where were the three little owls sitting on a pen wiper? It was gone and the Christmas cards that bad stood ontbe chimney piece, and the ugly glazed yellow flower vase, given ber, on her birthday, by the cook. The clock on the chimney-piece was stopped. Salome bad wound that up regularly; her hand was.no longer there, and It had been allowed to run down. The room was dead without the tick of the clock. Philip wound it up and set the pendulum swinging. It ticked again, but in a formal, weary manner, unlike the brisk and cheerful tick of old. The room had a cold, unfurnished look with out Salome's knick-knacks trifles in them- selvesjbut giving an air of refinement and cbeerines to the apartment He went over to the dressing table. No combs and brushes, no hairpins, bottles of hair oil and wash there simply a table with a looking glass on it One little glass was there, but no flowers in it; and hitherto it had never failed to contain some even in winter. With what ingenuity had Salome kept that little glass on the dressing table bright in winter at times with holly only, or ivy leaves or moss and a scarlet Jew's ear. It was the same downstairs. There the flowers were ragged and faded in the vase. Salome was awav, who had rearranged them every second day. The room smrtt musty, and Philip threw up the window. He stood at it and looked our, dreamily. Where was Salome now? Was she in Switzerland? Had she any heart to look at the mountains? Would the wonderful scenery be any joy to her alone? "I can never dine as I did yesterday." said Philip. "I will ask Tomkins in." That day be did invite Tomkins, his head traveler. Bat he was irritated with Tomkins and angry with the maid, because Tomkins' seat had been put at the end of the table, in Salome's place; and Tomkins was a different object to his eyes to rest on from Salome. The dinner passed wearily. Philip was not indeed, concerned about the parlor maid examining the mole on his neck, but he had to make conver sation for Tomkins, and to listen to Tomkins' commercial room tales, and to be civil to Tom kinf. After dinner Tomkins was In no hurry to go. He enjoyed the Pennycomequlck port, and on bushels: oats 223,000 bushels; rye. 7,000 bush els; barley. 8,000 bushels.

CARTER, i PER CENr GOLD INVESTMENTBONDS, 511-515 Hamilton Bonding, ' mjl0-70n Pltttbnrg, Pa. the port grew confidential and Philip becama tired, every minute more.tired. of TomkJn and was vexed with himself for having aske Tomkins in and vowed be wonld dina by him self next evening. Then Tomkins finding IS difficult to rouse Philip's interest and excite laugh, began to tell rather broad stories ana was undeterred by Philip's, stony sure till Philip suddenly stood np. rang for coffee and said It was time to adjourn to another room and so cut Tomkins short But even after Tomkins had been got inter tbe drawing room and had been chilled thers by its size and coldness and the inattention of his host be showed little Inclination to depart, and threw ont hints that he could strum an ac companiment to himself on tbe"planny" and sing a song, sentimental or humorous. If Mr. Pennycomequlck would like to hear him. But Philip pleaded headache and became at length, so freezing as to force Tomkins to take his leave. Philip did not feel it necessary to accompany his head commercial into tbe hall; but Mary was there to assist him into his great coat, and find him his hat, and give him a light for his cigar. "Well, Mary," said Tomkins, pleasantly. "Thank you, Jlary; to take a light from yoa warms tbe heart Mary. Pm as blind as a. beetle in the dark, and 'pon my word, dear, I don't know my right hand from my left In tho dark. You wouldn't object would you there a dear just to set me on my way home, with my nose in the right direction, and then my cigar light will carry me on? Can't go wrong if I follow that But it is the first step, Mary tbe first step is the thing. Le premier paw, say the French." Then be booked his arm into bers, and tha demnre Mary had no objection to take just half a dozen steps along the road with the affable Mr. Tomkins who was a widower and to leave tbe hall door ajar as she escorted him part of his way home. Philip sat in the drawing room in bad humor. It was dull dining by himself: it was insuffera ble dining with Tomkins He could not lnvita brother manufacturers to alne with him every evening. What must he do? He wonld return to nlain food and a book at his solitary meal, and dismiss the critical parlor maid till he re quired his plate to be changed. Philip rang the bell. Tbe teacuDSwere left on the tabic His bell remained unanswered. He rang again. It was still unnoticed. Then be angrily went down into tbe hall, and found the door ajar. He called to the servants In tho kitchen for Mary. Tne housemaid appeared. "Please, sir, she's gone out a moment to post a letter." What! at this time of night?" "It was most particular; her mother bs dreadful porely, sir, and Mary do take on abont herorfull" "Go to bed lock up," ordered Philip; and ha stood in the hall while the frightened domes tics filed past Then he turned down tbe gas and returned to. tbe drawing room. He would hear Mary when she came in by tbe ball door, and would at once give her her dlsmissaL He sat waiting. Here was fresh troubla come on him, through his wife's absence Ha would have to sea that bis servants were kept in proper order; that they kept proper hours. He bad hardly resumed his seat before ha heard steps in the ball, and then on the stairs. Certainly not the tread of Mary; not light and not stealthy, but firm and ponderous What step could it bef Tomkins returning to tell one of bis good stories, or to ask for soda-water? He listened, and hesitated whether to rise or not. It must be the step of Tomkins; no one else wonld venture to come in at this time. The step was arrested at tha drawing-room door; then Philip stood up, and as he did so the door was thrown open, and Uncle Jeremiah stood on the threshold, look ing at bim. He knew the old man at once, though he was changed, and his hair white. "Philip," said Jeremiah, "where isyour wif ef Where is Salome?" Philip was too much astonished to answer. Then said Jeremiah sternly: "Give an ao count of thy stewardship, for thou mayest ba no longer steward." To be continued next Jfonday. L1Y STOCK MAEEETS.
