BALLADE OF HOPE
Strong ropes of sand I yet may weave;
The circle I have hopes to square;
I may in course of time achieve
A competence that's more than bare;
I may, in fact, have cash to spare
And make as sciniillant a show
As any bloated millionaire?
The chances are against it, though.
Some rich relation yet may leave
Me of his fortune ample fhare,
That I my fortunes may retrieve;
But little, after all. I care.
Somehow 1 can propel the mare.
The stocks 1 bought, though sunken low,
A dividend may soon declare.
The chances are against it, though.
You need not snicker in your sleeve
Or raise your brows and rudely stare.
I can quite readily conceive
That hopefulness like mine is rare.
But sumptuously 1 may fare
And clad in purple raiment go.
While brassy bands before me blare?
The chances are against it, though.
Prince?you a Prince's garments wearPress
not the trifiins debt I owe.
I soon may make a raise somewhere?
The chances are against it, though.

VsS - gje The smothered agony in
Kfljl Tp this imploring word would
pi l|? have touched with pity any
laift lag heart capable of understanding
it, but it had 110
effect on the man to whom it was addressed,
and whose cold eyes were
fixed sternly upon that sweet, young
face, from which the harsh decree his
lips had spoken had driven the bright
color and happy smile that had made it
so fair to look upon.

give up all thoughts of marrying James
Eldridge. A man who hns reached the
age of twenty-three, and never laid up
a dollar, will be no sort of dependence
for a family. I suppose he thinks a
marriage with you will place him beyond
the necessity for work; but he is
greatly mistaken. I have earned my
money too hardly to throw it away
upon such as he."
"You do James an injustice, father;
lie does not seek my hand from mercenary
motives. With all his faults?
and I will not deny that he has suchhe

that ever beat. 1 shall never love another
man as I love him. Bestow your
.wealth on whom you will, but do not.
1 beseech you, make your only child
so utterly wretched!"
"Enough of this folly!" exclaimed
Mr. Dane, harshly. "You know what
my will concerning this matter is; and
it only remains for you to show whether
you will continue to be the dutiful
daughter that you have hitherto been.
You can see James to-night, if you will,
but only to tell him what I tell you
now?that this must be your last interview:
that you can never be his wife, i
Now go; I have more important matters
on hand than listening to the silly fancies
of a lovesick girl."
Mary arose from her seat and turned
toward the door; but her cheek was
pale, and there was a look in her dark
eyes, as they rested upon her father's
face, that he Lad never seen there before.
"I will obey you, father, but remember
that you are dooming me to a
lonely and joyless life. 1 will give up
'James at your bidding; but, as I can
never love, so will 1 never marry any
It was with very different feelings
from what she hail anticipated that
Mary awaited the approach of believer.
But the step of James was light
and buoyant, and he greeted her with
' a proud and happy smile. With her it
was their last interview; with him it
iwas but the precursor of many more,
as well as the happy day that would
make her his own altogether.
But he could not but notice her pale
cheek and troubled look.
"What is the matter, dearest? Why
do your eyes look into mine with that
mournful gaze? You surely do not
repent your promise. Let me hear
from those sweet lips again that you

fair girl, laying her cheek lovingly to

with a visible effort, she withdrew herself
from his arms.
"But 1 can never be your wife,
"Can never be m.v wife. Mary!" repeated
the young man in a tooe of
sorrowful astonishment. "What do
you mean? You surely will not break

"You know it was conditional, James,

the lovers still farther asunder.
Inspired by a mania for speculation,
Mr. Dane left his pleasant New England
home for California, where he
was as successful as ever in heaping
up the wealth that was his idol.
In the meantime Mary remained true
to her promise. From all the admirers
that her beauty and modest worth
drew around her. she turned steadily
away. And if her father urged the
claims of some one of them upon her
notice, her answer was the same.
"At your bidding, I separated from
the oniy man I can ever Jove; but. as I
told you then, so I tell you now. 1 will
never marry another."
Soon after his rejection, James joined
the army, taking an active part in the
great struggle that was then at its
height, partly to deaden the restless
pain at his heart, and partly from the
higher motives that animated so many
brave men in that dark hour of our
country's trial. Though he enlisted as
a private, his skill and bravery insured
his rapid promotion, ai d at the close
of the war he was honorably dis
charped with the ranis of captain.
A low months after "business cailed
him to San Franeiseo. As he was en
route for that city, at a way station,
two ladies, dressed in black, entered
one of the cars, the one in -which
James, now Captain Eldridge was sitting.
He could not see the face of either,
but there was something in the form of
the younger, especially in the graceful
turn of the neck, that at once arrested
his attention, thrilling his heart with
She turned her head. Yes.it was she,
his lost. Dut never forgotten. Mary!
And. as their eyes met. tbe blush,
the bright and happy smile that overspread
her countenance, showed that
she still held him in as loving remembrance.
The elder lady was Mrs. Dane,
In the conversation which ensued he
learned that Mr. Dane had died a few
months previously. Left alone, as it
were, the widow and daughter, as soon
as the business of the deceased could
be closcd up. prepared to return to
their home in the East, though proposing
to stop a few weeks in an adjoining
town to visit a friend, and they
were now on their way thither.
James escorted them to the house of

"Is not the hand of Providence in
this unexpected and most happy meeting?"
he said, his eves resting appealingly
upon the benevolent countenance
of Mrs. Dane, "and will you. can you
refuse to recognize its leadings?"
"It is for Mary to choose." was the
"I made my choice long ago." said
the blushing girl, as she raised her
smiling eyes to her lover's face.

"Said I not aright." murmured Mary,
as she yielded to the warm embrace
to which she was folded, "that I would
give myself to no other? The kiss you
left upon my Hps when we parted,
you will find there now."
"My love! My own!" exclaimed the
enraptured man. as he drew tier still
more closely to l;is heart.
A few weeks later James and Mary
publicly pronounced the vnws that
mode them one in life, as in heart.

James F. Sweeney, of the Suffolk
(Mass.) bar, is noted for the brightness
and aptness of his retorts. Recently
in a case a woman was very refractory
under cross-examination, and although
the lawyer used all politeness and
mildness, sharp and unsatisfactory replies
were received. Her meek and
humble husband was present in court.
Mr. Sweeney tried another innocent
question, when the lady responded
with vindictive fire flashing from li^r
eyes: "Mr, Lawyer, yon needn't think
you can catch me; no. sir. you can't
catch me."' With his most pleasing
smile Mr. Sweeney responded: "Madam.
