nud to-night the auspicious ovont was
to take place. Preparations bad been
nindu on a grand scale; -lobn Delano
bad determined to make this, the wed
ding of bis only child, a memorable
event. ,
The match between Mary Delano and
Sbauu lirady bad been brought about
and perfected by Pat Mulcahy, a re
nowned matchmaker. Mary was an
cxceptloually'pretty girl, nnd as good as
ebo was pretty. .Sbauu Ilrndy was
twice her age. po"esslng an unenvia
ble name and many enemies: but, an
John Delano remarked, "a moneyed
man has many Jealous friend." and
money Sbauu bad In plenty, that cov
ered all dctlctcuclc. moral and physi

Mary Delano bad no love for Sbauu
Brady, she well knew that her life
would be In many ways a bard one, but
she had been badgered by her father
until she had bald yes with a heavy
Leart. -
The bridegroom nnd priest had not
yet arrived, but the dancing began,
Tom Ilarty, the tiddler, playing "The
Wind That Shook the P.arley" lu lln
islieil style. Mary did not participate,
reserving her first dance for her future
Iiu.sbaud. She received the guests as
.they came, standing proudly beside her
father, her face white as warble.

"An dit you think I could be happy
with Slmuti Ilrndy V" asked Mary, with
nn upward glance.
"Well, 1 hope you'll be," he answered
"An' what's the good hoping any such
thing, when you know, well as I do,
that happiness and I will part forever
when I marry Sbauu? I have been
forced Into It, an' shall try to do my
duty: It's too late now to turn back."
Dan looked up, with determination lu
every Hue of his line fnce.
"So. Mary," hu said, "It Is not too
late. If you care for me, or think that
lu time you could give me your precious
love, I say ngaln that It's not too late."
"Ob. Dan. sbure you forget that I'm
to be married this night. Ills rlvereiice
and Sbauu are expected any minute."
"I'm not forgettlu' the fact, and It's
n short time you have to decide. We'll
run away, an' go straight to Father
Duffy's an' be married, an' wld you nt
my side to give me courage I'll work
my lingers off to give you eomfort."
Then Mary, with love-lit eyes (oh, so
different from the downcast Mary of
an hour ago) and blushing cheeks, con
sented. "111 go wld you. Dan. My heart you
possess, an' you might as well have

Two wi,eki from that memorable
night the runaways returned, and were
welcomed heartily to the village. Mary
resolved to ask her father's forgive
ness; she loved him dearly, nnd her
conscience troubled her. She Insisted
on Dan's accompanying her. The old
man grew white with u tiger when bo
saw the culprits before hlln.
"Away wld ye! You beggar-you

neiisbla! but I'd have you know, sir,
that I'm no beggar; I'm well nblo to
make a llvtu' for my wife, an' I'll do It
wld Clod's help."
The old housekeeper enmo Into the
parlor a short time after, and was much
surprised to seo Mary sitting close be
side her father, Dan lu the best chair
the bouse afforded, and all three as
contented as they could be.
"Sbure It Isn't un hour ago." she told
the dairy maid, "since John Delano
said, wld bis own lips, Td not forgive

How They Ucguii.
"None shall wear 11 feather but he
who has hilled a Turl:," was an old
Hungarian saying, and the number of
feathers lu his can Indicated how many
Turks the man had killed. Hence the
origin of the saying with reference to
a feather In one's cup.
It was once customary In Trance,
when a guest had outstayed his wel
come, for the host to servo a cold shoul
der of mutton Instead of a hot roast.
This was the origin of tho phrase, "To
give the cold shoulder."
In one of the battles between the
Itusslnns nnd Tartars a private soldier
of the former called out: "Captain,
I've caught a Tartar!" "Htlng him
along, then!" answered tho olllcer. "I
can't, for bo won't let me!" was the re
sponse. Upon Investigation It was ap
parent that the captured bad the cap
tor by the nrin, and would not release
blni. So "catching a Tartar" Is applic
able to one who has found an antngou
1st too powerful for bl 111.
"Deadhead," as denoting one who has
free entrance to places of amusement,
comes from Pompeii, where the cheeks
for free admission were small Ivory
death's bends. Specimens of these nro
lu the museum at Naples.
That far from elegant expression "to
kicked the bucket" Is believed to havo
originated In the time of Queen Eliza
beth, when a shoemaker named Hawk
Ins committed suicide by plncing n
bucket on n table In order to raise him
self high enough to reach n rafter
above, with a rope about bis neck, then
kicking away the bucket on which bo
Again there has arisen a discussion
ns to the use of slang. There are times
when thoughts nrlno within the human
brain which nro almost "beyond the ut
teruuee of the human tongue." lly the
aid of a slang term the man who has
tho gift of speech can get them out, For,
be It observed, there Is slang and slang,
nnd It may be used with artistry or
with mere stupidity. The special ex
ample chosen by Oliver Wendell
Holmes for an Illustration lu his disser
tation on the expressiveness of slang
was tho word "bore;" but this has
fouud a place In Webster, nnd must
surely be regarded as leglttmnte. How
could you express your objection to tho
man who bores you oxcept by saylug
that he bores you? There aro n hun
dred other words which aro valuable
lu such emergencies, and 0110 can only
hope that, by a process of tho survival
of tho tlttest, the best of them will find
their way Into the dictionaries.
Conflicting Wishes.
Whllo going bis rounds, tho foreninn
of a factory lost a cuff lluk. Af tor somo
time had elapsed nud the cult link bad
not turned up, bo caused tho following
notice to bo put up in a cousplcuous
position In tho workshop! "Mr. I. ,
having lost a gold cuff link, would bo
very glad If tho tinder would return It
its soon as possible to tho owner." Ini
nglne bis feelings when a few hours
later on passing tho notice he found the
following appended: "Tho tinder o'
the ubovo cuff link would bo very much
obliged If Mr. h would loso the
other one."
