A HALLOWEEN STORY
STRANGE BUT TRUE ROMANCE OF A
• BROTHER AND SISTER.

to roam through
space and read their own or the future
of others. Hence it is the occasion for
divining tho answer to that momentous
question which absorbs so large a share
of the thoughts of romantic young men
and maidens, "Whom am I to marry?"
Naturally such an occasion is not de
void of romance, and Halloween rarely
recurs without reminding me of a story
that was related to a party of friends a
few years ago while homeward bound
across the Atlantic. Tho center of the
group was a handsome matron, and
promenading the deck was a beautiful
young girl of twenty, accompanied by
two gentlemen. Pointing to them the
old lady proudly said: One of thoso
gentlemen is my son, who is returning
to America with his English bride; the
other is her brother, who is making a
visit to our country for the first time.
If you don't mind listening to a bit of
romance it may while away a pleasant
half hour, and I'll tell it to you as it
was told to mo. The mother of my
new daughter when a child resided in
one of the most beautiful parts of Eng
land. Her parents were wealthy and
all that heart could wish was at her
command. Adjoining their estate was
that of Squire Henry Percival, whoso
only son, Guy, was pledged almost from
birth as the husband of the young heir
ess, tho two mothers having been school
mates and tho two children having been
born on the same day. They thus grew
up together, with tastes in common, and
together enjoyed all the sports of young
people.
And now began tho strange series of
incidents that were narrated to me
While in England by Uncle Guy, as wo
all call him, who still lives and is the
adopted father of yonder happy bride. I
forgot to tell you that her maiden name,
like that of her mother, is Belle Bruce.
"I remember," said Uncle Guy, "that
when wo were about fifteen years of age
Halloween arrived and all tho young
people of tho neighborhood assembled in
the big library of Percival hall to take
part in the games and woo our sweet
hearts. During the evening Belle and
I engaged in a romp with her handker
chief, which she had tied in a ball, nnd
by accident, while it was being tossed
to and fro, I threw it behind one of the
largo pictures hanging in the library.
"Time wore on, and Belle went to
Paris to engage iv study and especially
to cultivate her voice, which was a con
tralto of great compass, while I was sent
to Italy to pursue my bent iv painting.
"During tho next few years I worked
assiduously at my profession as an art
ist and won my share of its honors nnd
wealth. One day while sauntering
through the streets of Florence with .111
old English friend we were accosted in
our own language by a handsome little
fellow who stopped in tho midst of a
singularly familiar English air, and
begged us to buy some of the music he
had for sale. Wo both quickly became
interested, and I said, 'Youngster,
where did you learn that song, and how
is it that you speak English so well?'
" 'My mother was an English lady,'
was the reply, 'and slip taught it to
me; it was her favorite song. But I'm
no youngster; I'm a girl,' she added.
"Becoming st ill more interested, I made
inquiries concerning her history. She
told mo that her mother had died long
beforo and left her brother and herself
in charge of a kind lady who was to send
them to their relatives in England as
soon as sho could find a way; that while
playing in the street an old woman
from whom she had run away had stolen
them from home and taken them to
other cities. It was a very, very long
time, she said, since her mother died.
"I'm a girl."
" 'What was your mother's name?' 1
inquired. 'She had two name 3,' was
the answer, 'but she told mo to always
say to English people that her name
was Belle Bruce, and that is my name.
She told me, too, that some time I might
meet a man who would be good to me
for her sake—Guy Percival—and I have
always been looking for him.' When I
announced that I was Guy the little girl
threw herself into my arms, crying
with joy, and together we hurried to
my residenae, where as quickly as possi
ble garments were provided befitting
her sex and position.
"My next step was to find the family
to whom little Belle had been left by her
mother, and by dint of much question
ing I was at last enabled to locate them
In Milan and to learn that the name was
Valeric. Thither we journeyed as rap
idly as possible, and I was soon pos
sessed of all the desired information.
She had been one of the favorite pu
pils of Professor Valeric, and having a
magnificent voice easily secured a posi
tion on the operatic stage, making an
instant success. In Paris or Brussels
she fell in love with an Italian tenor and
they wire .married. A boy and girl re
-uteri from the union, but the "brutal
nature of the husband forced her to
leave him. Subsequently ho died, and
her own health failing sho returned 10
the homo of tho Valeries in Milan,
where she, too, passed away. One morn
ing whilo the children were at play in
front of the houso they wero abducted.
"Returning to Florence with my
charge I determined to defer-all engage
ments and go at onco to my home in
England, where little Belle could have
the care of my mother and bo educated
as became her station in life, in the
four years that elapsed she received in
struction in the best schools and under
the best masters, and at eighteen was a.
tall, handsome woman, inheriting the
beauty of person and purity of voice of
her dead mother. The little sprite, how
ever, from the day of her rescue insisted
upon being called Belle Percival 'be
cause that was her Uncle Guy's name.'"
And now (resumed tho old lady, as
if in reality she had been allowing some
body else to talk) I may tell the rest of
the story in my own way because it con
cerns me and mine. There, walking to
gether, as I remarked in the beginning,
aro brother and sister, restored after all
these long years of separation to each
other's arms. How did it come about?
Well, in this wise, and you will agree
with me that Providence performs its
wonders in a mysterious way:
After my son's graduation from Yale,
some two years ago, when he desired
to visit Europe, we accompanied him
and made an extended tour of the Con
tinent. During our stay in Romo he
became acquainted! with a tall, hand
some, dark eyed young man, who,
though looking every inch an Italian,
spoke English with perfect fluency. Ho
was the protege of an American artist
named Irving, who had found him a
stray waif in the streets when a mere

lad, taken him to his home, adopted him
and given him the family name. His
first name is Vivian. The acquaintance
quickly ripened into an intimate friend
ship, and at the solicitation of my son
Mr. Irving permitted him to become our
guest. Thus he traveled with us for
several weeks. While 'in Florenco we
visited among other studios that of Mr.
Guy Percival, and my husband, im
pressed by the beauty of his paintings,
became an extensive purchaser. Nat
urally this led to a reciprocal feeling,
and tho result was that that gentleman
invited us to accompany him on his
usual annual jaunt to his English home,
It is unnecessary to dwell upon the
hospitable character of our reception ex
cept in so far as it influenced the desti
ny of those three young peoplo so mer
rily walking back aud forth. The lovely
hostess at her first glance took posses
sion of all our hearts, and before the
evening was spent I intuitively felt that
both Vivian and my son were desperate
ly in love.
The end of October was approaching,
and with it the time to start for home.
But at the solicitation of Mr. Percival
we agreed to stay and participate in the
pleasures of Halloween. And now came
tho unexpected climax.
We were all in the great library,
guests from within the mansion and
guests from without. The evening had
been crowded with merriment, and if
there was a sad face present it was that
of Mr. Percival as he thought perhaps
of the past. A game of blind man's
buff was iv progress, with Belle as "the
blind man," and groping her way through
the throng she accidentally touched a
picture. There fell to the floor a hand
kerchief rolled in a ball and covered
with dust. Mr. Percival sprang forward
at the same instant and seizing the ball
began to untie it. "See here!" he ex
claimed excitedly as he exposed one cor
ner. "Your name—your mother—Belle
Bruce 1 I threw it there when we were
playing together years and years ago
this very night!" And tears filled his
eyes.
"Belle Brucel Belle Bruce!" repeated
Vivian Irving. "That is the name of my
mother, too who'died in Milan while I
was a child and left me and my sister
among strangers. We were stolen, and
I have never seen my sister since." "Yes,
you have—for she is here by your side
—Belle Bruce—your own sister!" again
exclaimed Mr. Percival. "Thank God!
The lost has been found!" Aud while he
was yet speaking Vivian and Belle were
entwined in each other's arms and min
gling their tears of joy.
There were no more romps and
frolics that night, for the occasion had
become too sacred, and when the guests
departed we sat around and listened to
the whole story just as I have told it to
you. The next day Belle and my son
had an interview, aud when it ended his
eyes, too, contained a new light. We
shall all of us remember the precious
gifts that came to us from Halloween.

It is often difficult, when opinion is
challenged, to know just what one is
desired to say. Mahlstick is a painter:
he has a work ou the easel, and he
stands before it with a despairing
clutch of his hair.
"What do you think of it? If you
knew how 1 have struggled over it!"
"Yes; it shows tho struggle," en
deavoring to put in the answer a sym
pathetic note.
"Do you think so? I don't, think so at
all," Mahlstick replies with feeling, but
then takes heart, and waving his hand
at the works standing and hanging
about him adds proudly:
"Yes; they all show struggle!"— New

Mr. Henry Clows, after a ! Al 1

has dropped into politics and 1 ':, fctr tv

man of note ever since tho war, and in
tho panic of 1573 his failure probably
caused more gen

however, and his

Once in New Yo r k he abandoned all
thoughts of service in the church, and as
soon as possible obtained a clerkship in
the old banking house of Wilson G.
Hunt & Co., and that has been his line
of work ever since. In 1853 he organ
ized tho banking firm of Stout, Clews &
Mason; later it became Livermore, Clews
& Co., and then Henry Clews & Co., as
it has been ever since.
HENRY CLEWS.
He has probably been interviewed oft
ener than any other New Yorker, ex
cept possibly Cbauncey Depew, and thi;
because he is a thinker on many subjects,
especially finance and politics. His pres
ent wife, whom ho married in 1874, was
Lucy Madison Worthington, sister of the
noted beauty who become Mrs. Secre
tary Belknap, and equally noted for
beauty. She was a southern lady, and is
among tho most popular and successful
of society leaders. With her aid Mr.
Clews has added a pleasant social life
to his political and financial experience,
but society is the one subject on which
he never submits to an interview.
Personally Mr. Clews is a pleasant,
businesslike man, with just hair enough
around the base of his think tank to
save bim from total baldness. He has
more than once been solicited to become
a candidate for mnyor or other local of
fice, but the chances for a Republican
in New York city have not struck him
as particularly brilliant. It is a singular
fact that though he entered business
immediately after the panic of 1857-8,
and has always enforced the policy of
"buying in" in panic times and avoid
ing investments in "kiting times," lie
has twice been caught by failing to fol
low his own advico.
Ho did an immense work in negotiat
ing bonds for the government during
the war, and gained on the rise, but ws<
caught and crush) d in tho panic of 187: i.
He negotiated bonds for tho reconstruc
tion government;, in the southern states
and suffered again. Ho pleasantly ad
mits in his I 'Twenty-eight Years in Wall
Street" that he has had several narrow
escapes from other collapses, but is still
an ardent believer that Wall street
methods are moral and beneficial in the
highest degree.
