THE CLERK'S BONANZA.
•Twas at the Hotel Scdjtewlck, Down'by the rolliug sen, I Tliat a wondrous piece of fortune Last summer came to me. I was the weary night clerk, •. But in the (lay, you see, I was quartered as a truest Of very high degree. I bad trenienduous collars, Kid gloves and shiny tile, I smoked the choicest cigarettes And wore a languid smile. The heiress, Delia Snlggins, (Her age WHS thirty-three) I beaued around till she become Completely mashed on me. I wrote her gushing verses, I rqueezed her clammy hand, I called her all the loving names I had at my command. Till, to cut this simple story, I married the fair maid And had afar from lovely time While at the beach we stayed. She had a temper like a fiend (But life must have its ills) I'm running things in Pumpkinville, Aud Delia pars the bills. —C. Surteigh, in Detroit Free Pres*. Reunited at Last. The blno waters of Shepscot rippled and flashed in the August sunshine as it swept on, winding in and out among the scattered islands till it reached the broader expause beyond. On one of these islands, and hardly more than a stone's throw from the river, stood an old square house. On this sultry August afternoon as the day wore on' the sky darkened, dis tant thunders sounded warniuglv now and then, till with the twilight, the breeze, grown to a sudden gale, dashed the large rain drops against the win dows of the old house which Mrs. Mar low was hurrying about to close. "Well, I declare, father," she said, coming downstairs quite out of breath, "how it does rain! who'd thought it when 'twas so pleasant this after noon?" Capt. Mnrlow rubbed the bald spot on his head reflectively as lie returned, "Does pour, that's a fact." A little later a blinding flash, accom panied bv a crash of thunder heavier than any preceding, caused Mrs. Mar low to start up from her chair. "Mercy!" she exclaimed, pity any poor creature that has to be out in this." The storm continued with little abate ment. Just as one peal of thunder died away an ind stinet sound readied the ears of the two people in the long kitchen. Tli".y regarded each other questioningly for a moment then there was a rattle of the doorlatch. Someone outside were groping for it in the dark ness. The mnn started up and going to the door threw ,t. wide open to the storm, but he st« !'|u'd back as he did so, for there on t't door stotie stood, a ligure etranire to him. The next moment his hospital it overcame every other feel ing, ami reaching out he v.i d, "Who ever ye are, come in." Mrs. Mariow was by his side and gazing in amazement at the slight, white-robed figure. It was a youii" girl they had never seen before. There was a frightened, appeal ng look in the brown eye. The ml and ra had beaten upon her head tili the dark, curling hair was drenched ami clinging about her neck. Mis. Mai-low's moili^ erly arms stretched out instinctively. "Poor child!" she sa'd, drawing her into the room "why, father, she is wet through and through." It was qii te true. The water dripped from the dainty white dress and made little pools upon the floor. She wore no wrap of any kind. As vet she had not spoken, but stood looking wonder inglv about the room. "Where did you come from? Are pou :i!one?" Mrs. Mariow asked, and the girl answered with a shudder, "Yes, I'm alone." "Dear, dear, poor child! Let me get vou something warm." Capt. Mariow set about making a fire in the cook stove, while his wife took the stranger into the little bedroom. "You're all beat out," the good woman said pityingly "You'd better go rght to bed." The girl made no remon strance, but submitted quite passively to whatever was proposed. She took I he warm drink Mrs. Mariow brought her. and when the woman went back to the kitchen she said, "Ideclare, father, the poor thing's completely beat out she's asleep already." Anxious days followed, while the Btrangi-r tosi-ed in the delerium of fe ver, and Mrs. Mariow cared for her as tenderly as if she had been her own. "Poor child." she said, tears coming into her eyes as she spoke, "it ninkes my heart a-he to think she is away from all she loves." There was no clew to the girl's form erlife no one on the island knew any thing about her, ana all inquiries else where brought no knowledge. Mrs. Mariow searched the girl's clothing but only one word was found, and one day she slipped a ring from the wasted hand and looked for some inscription there was only the word she had found before, the name Kathleen. The suft'erer spoke often, but though Mrs. Mariow strove to catch any words lhat might lead to the discovery of who she was there was but little that waa intelligible. Sometimes she seemed to be wander ing through some wood, and said that the pine needles made a soft carpet it others she fancied herself on the wa ter, and said she was so tired drawing against the stream. Once or twice she spoke the name of Everett, but that ivas all. "Poor child!" sighed the good wo man. "When she gets well she will tell ns, and we will take her home." But there were days when it seemed that there was little "reason to expect lier recovery, yet. the crisis passed and the still lived. Very white and weak the was, her brown eyes looking un naturally large, then a"faint color come into her face that grew rounded every day. Mrs. Mariow forebore asking any questions as yet. though she wondered a little that Kathleen asked tier none, but she was growing strong er, she would speak by and by. Yes she was growing stronger. Still the doctor looked grave and continued liis visits after she was able to walk tbout. But as time went on there was no change. She answered to the name Df Kathleen and called Captain and Mrs. Mariow father and mother, as she aeard them call each other. She seem ed quite happy roaming about the Eland, only when any mention was inade of going on the water a troubl ed look came into her face. "No," the always said, 'I would rather not," lo they did not urge her. She was •ardly twenty, Mrs. Mariow thought. of a slight, lithe figure and aa careless ly graceful as a child. Her complexion was of creamy, almost transparent whiteness, the crimson showing only in her cheeks and lips. Fall, Winter and early Spring passed uneventfully away then there came time when the house was in an unusual state of commotion and expectancy. Capt. Mariow's son Robert was coming home. He would be here soon now: he had been in South America, and it was more than a year ago that he hac gone away. Mrs Mariow specula tec as to how' bis coming would affect Kathleen, who seemed as joyfully cagei to prepare for him as she did herself. But when he came the broad-shoulder ed captain of the High-flyer was fai more affected than was Kathleen. It was Robert who iirs induced liet to step into a boat. She seemed ashamed of her fears, but her face was very pale as they took the first sail down the river together. As the time went on she grew accustomed to the water and came to enjoy it Many were the sails the two took during the long Summer afternoons. On one of these as they rowed slow along toward a cove bordering the father side of the island, Robert said, looking off to the wooded islands beyond, with theii green branches reflected in the Shep scot's clear water, "How still it is' We might fancy ourselves the only peo ple anvwhere about." He let the oars rest and the boat drifted slowly the lapping of the waves was tlie only sound. "Yes," Kathleen returned, "I was foolish not to like the water." "You like it now "When I am with vou." The words came so quickly, and she did not look up, but sat as before, with one ham! over the boat's side just touching the water." The young man leaned suddenly to ward her. "Kathleen," he said, "stay with me always. Come with me over the water where I am going. I want you—need you—can't you love mo enough The girl looked up at him with the wondering look of a child. "Love you," she said, "of course are you not my brother." "No, I don't want a sister's love. Want a wife's. The bright color that had been in the girl's face until now died suddenly out, a startled, troubled look came into the brown eves looking up at him. "Oh, Robert! I can't, I can't!" He started more at her voicc than her words and asked quickly, "Why can't you?" For a moment she seemed struggling with herself, then with a despairing face, she cried, "I don't know I can't remember." A few weeks later they were making a call on some friends of Robert's on a neighboring island an open piano stood near where Kathleen was seat ed, and as they were to go she went to it, and struck a few notes. The others turned in surprise they did not know she played but without heeding them she seated herself, and after a few un certain touches her lingers ilew lightly over the keys, bringing'out such melo dy as its owner had never known how to awaken. Robert and his friends stood amazed, as one after another the selections followed each other in rapid succession. Suddenly the rl paused, bowed her head on her hands and sob bed aloud. Something like a week after this a stranger came across the big.rock and made his way to the side door of the old Mariow house. A young man with clear-eut features and an unmistakably well-bred air. There was an eager look in the steel-blue eyes and a sup pressed excitement in his manner, when lie asked the gray-haired woman at the door if she was Mrs. Mariow. He introduced himself by a card on which was the name Everett Moulton. Then he entered, and made known his call. Kathleen came into the next room while he was speaking. She heard the voice and paused, the troubled look coming into her face then she went nearer and stood in ttie doorway. The young man turned, and saw her as she started toward him with a light break ing into her face. "Everett, she said, softly, "have you come for me?" "Yes. Kathleen." And Mrs. Mariow, with tears in her eyes, went out and left them alone. Ere long the story became known, A little more than a year back Kath leen Bray, the daughter of a man of supposed wealth, found herself, upon his death, left penniless and alone. She accepted for the summer the position of pianist at a popular hotel, where she met Everett Moulton. The acquaint ance grew into something more than friendship, but the Moultons were a proud family and would not hear to the only son's marrying a poor girl like Kathleen. She was treated coldly, unfeelingly by them, till her sensitive nature was stnng almost beyond endurance, and late one afternoon, hardly thinking or caring where she went, entered a ooat moored near the shore and rowed aim lessly up the river. The storm came on, and weary, bewildered, ill, she found her way at length to the old Mariow homestead. The boat was found down the river afterward with a light wrap in it recognized as hers. The Moultons thought she had taken herself discreetly away, and Everett mourned her as lost until a friend wrote to him of hearing music strangely like what Kathleen had played on one of the Boothbav Islands. He had made inquiries which resulted in Everett's calling on the Marlows. With Kathleen he went to Chipmunk Island, and on the sence of her happi ness and misery the meaning of it all came back to her and was never lost again. That Fall, when Robert Mariow sail ed from Boston harbor. Kathleen and her husband came down to the wharf to see him ofE He found little to say as he grasped their hands in iiis fare well, but Kathleen, glancing up with a kindly smile, said: "However long vou may be away, be sure we shall not for get."

Secretary Fairchild has directed the an tisipation ot the interest on the public debt due on Sept. 1 and Jan. 1 with two per cent rebate, and invited proposals for the sale of 4 1-2 per cent bonds lor the sinking fund. Secretary Fairchild said in explan ation of this action, that he did it simply because he regarded it as the'best thing that could bedoneunder the circumstances. The purchase ot bonds was for the purpose ot providing for tlic sinking fund and the anticipation of interest for the purpose of getting rid of the surplus. The latter oper ation was only what any good business man would do to discount his obligations. The anticipations of interest was one of the means given to the secretary of the treasury for disposing of surplus funds, and he regarded it as the cheapest and most advantageous. Interest covered by the circular amounts to $22,:$19,7G4. It is impossible just now to state the exact amount of rebate. The sinking fund re quirements will amount to about $'45,000, 000, in addition to §20,000,000 of 3 per cent bonds already applied to that fund. The surplus can be put out only through the co-operation of bondholders, and if tliey do not accept the terms of the pro position made them, it would seem they are not in very great need of money. The Offence and Pies of Dynamiter, Kew York Dispatch: An attempt was made Wednesday to blow up the steamer Queen, of the National line. One of the dynamiters, who says his name is Thomas J. Mooney, jumped into a small boat and attempted to escape, but was captured and brought to police headquarters. Mooney had in his possession a large dag ger and revolver. As yet has given no cause for his action. The damage to the steamer was trifling. Mooney subsequently told Judge Dubby the reason he attempted blow up the steam er was because the British insulted the American flag in Canada."Mooney waa re manded. Mooney said to the court: I think a great injuctice has been done citizens of the United States.

Consumption.—Mrs. EDWARD NEWTON, of Harrowemltht Ont., writes: You will ever be praised by mo for the remarka ble cure in my case. I was so reduced thnt my friends had all given me up, and I had also been given up by two doctors. I then went to the best doctor in these parts. He told mo that medicine was only a punishment In my case, and would not undertake to treat me. He said I might try Cod liver oil if I liked, aa that was the only thing that could possi bly have any curative power over consumption so far advanced. I tried the Cod liver oil as a last treatment, but I was so weak I could not keep it on my stomach. My husband, not feeling satisfied to give me up yet, though he had bought for me everything he saw advertised for my complaint, procured a quan tity of your' Golden Medical Discovery.' I took only four bottles, and, to the surprise of everybody, am to-day doing my own work, and am entirely free from that terrible cough which harrassed me night and day. I have been afflicted with rheumatism for a number or years, and now feel so much better that I believe, with a con tinuation of your'Golden Medical Discovery,'I will be restored to perfect health. I would say to those who are falling a prey to that terrible disease consumption, do not do cs I did, take eveiy thing^else first but take the'Golden Medical Discovery' in the early stages of the disease, and thereby save a great deal of suf fering and be restored to health at once.
