A STORY OF THE TIMES.
Or, Pay as You Go.
"Ho, Iiuni," sighed William Taylor,
as he seated himself by the stove, and
propped up his head with both hi:
He had ju?t made the Are. It was six
o'clock on a winter, morning the '1st
day ot January and his wifehad.be-
gun to get breakfast.
William Taylor was an under clerk in
the oflice of the Bagg Corporation, a
large manufacturing establishment in a
Xew England village. He had been
married about two years, hut life went
hard enough with him. Though he did
the best lie knew how to do, he could
not make both cuds of the year meet.
It is true, he hud some notions abouthis
social standing that were not exactly in
keeping with his position, and especial
ly not with his salary, which was only
three hundred dollars a year.
Dollars and cents were the most un
manageable commodities he was called
upon to handle. Tliey were slippery,
and would not stay between his lingers;
all he could do. He had not devoted
much attention to the subject of linancc
and in consequence it became one of
the many trial of his life.
"Whut is the matter, William?"
asked his wife, touched with his deep
" This is pay-day," replied the "hus
band, with another deep sigh.
"What of' it? You look as though
you had not a friend in'the world."
" I am miserable, Ellen."
"I am indeed." -
.". W.uat, because it ls.pay-day J ..
"People, generally feel rejoiced at
" I don't know. I have been awake
half the night thinking of it."
; Why, William; why should you feel
" I owe more than I can pay"
" Yon do?"
Ellen who was no financier, any, more
than her husband, had never given the
subject a thought. She was not n' little
surprised at the abrupt announcement.
' I do Ellen ; and I am fearful that I
shall have trouble with it."
"What sort of trouble?"' asked El
len, frightened, hut having no definite
idea ol what to dread.
" Perhaps some one will sue me, trus
tee my salary, or something of that
" Why did you not tell me of this be
fore, William? I would rather live on
crust of bread and wear acalico to
church; than make you unhappy, or
have you sued or trusteed. Will they
put you in jail?" and the young wife
actually trembled at the thought of
such a catastrophe.
" I think not ; but they may put me
to a great deal of trouble."
" Why did you not tell me before?"
" I did not know It myself. Last
Tuesday I made a few figures and found
that I owed about one hundred and' fif
ty dollars. Jly quarter's salary Is only
" But some of them will wait. Wc
"I went to Spike; but he refused to
wait beyond the lirst of January."
"Wo have been extravagant, Wil
liam." "I am afraid we have."
"How much do you owe Spiko?"
".About thirty dollars.-'
" Yes, Mich hills count up fast."
"We ought to not owe him a cent.
Wc ought to not ride at all, though I
enjoy riding very much."
"So do I, and Spike was always will
ing to trust me."
Spike kept the livery stable of the
village, and was generally willing to
run long bills with those of whom there
was any chance of getting his pay.
" I am sorry."
" 1 had no idea the bill was so tnucl)
till he sent it in about three weeks
" We must stop riding.
"It will bo hard to do so. After I
get done at the oflice, it is so pleasant
to drive half-a-dozen miles; but I didn't
think had ridden so much."
"Perhaps he'll wait."
"2Jo; he said he would not."
"What shall be done?"
"I don't know'."'
" Can't you borrow some money?"
"Perhaps I can."
" W'on't Mr. ilason lend you some
He has been very kind to you, and seems
to be very much interested in you
" t shduldri't like to ask him."
"I should have to expose my affairs
I'll tell you what I'll do."
" I' win write to Aunt Hannah. You
know how fond she, is of me. I will
ask, her to. lend me a hundred dollars,
She is rich, and perhaps she'll give It to
William did not like to have her do
so, bufthe perils fn his path finally in
duced him to consent. On the strengtli
of the letter he colild put Spike off
week or, two.
There was something to hope for, at
least, and Willian ate his breakfast and
felt much 'easier. 'He did not consider
that borrowlnghe money tdpay-adebt
was only transferring not cancelling It
But he looked only to escape his im
portunate creditors this time,he did not
fear for the future.
It was a quarter of eight by the
clock, and he was required to be in the
otllce.as soon as tho porters opened the
Ir. Mason was the agent of the Bagg
Corporation, and a man of large.heart
and excellent feelings. He was a little
eccentric in some of his ways. He had
views and opinions of his own think'
ing; and perhaps that was what made,
him seem so odd to some people.
He had found William Taylor in a
store tying dp bundles for twenty dol
lars'.! month. He' had taken a fancy to
him, .ami knowing him to be a prompt
and correct accountant', industrious and
attentive to business, and of excellent
character, he had given him his pres
ent situation. AVilliam had been mar
ried over a year then, and was the fa-
ther' of a little boy.
Three hundred dollars a year looked
like great wages to William. So he
took a better house, put a few articles of
neat furniture into it;- opened accounts
with the butcher, and grocer, the baker,
and the keeper of the livery stable,
On his present salary, he made up his
mind that he could live handsomely;
and once or twice a week he took Ellen
ride, ne was entirely devoted to her,
and she enjoyed riding so much that it
never occurred to him to count the cost.
Mr. Mason, a careful man, did count
the cost, and, made up his mind that
William was a.little too fast. His sus
picions were confirmed by the livery
stable keeper, who came one day to en
quire if the corporation owed William
anything. Others had asked the same
question. They did not say much, but
enough for Mr. Mason to understand
that his protege was In debt.
Only a few of the employees on the
corporation were paid quarterly. On
the first day.of .lanuary, as Mr.. Mason
went to the, .factory just :fore eight
'clock, he saw the deputy Sheriff
standing at the gate. He was waiting
there, probably, so that' he could rush
in and Serve his writ upon the corpora
tion, before the employees were paid.
Mr. Mason thoughtof William when
he saw the sheriff. So he went into the
oflice, opened the safe, took out some
money, and with the pay-roll under his
arm left the place.
Just as our hero was putting on his
hat to go out, Mr. Mason entered his
"Here William, are aeventy-five dol
lars, your quarter's salary. Write your
name on the pay-roll," said Mr. "Ma
"Yes, sir; but "
".Never, mind; sign your name."
"What does this mean, sir? I hope
"Xothing of the sort. There, that
ill do. Pleasant morning, Mrs. Tay
Mr. Mason took the pay-roll under
bis arm again and departed.
William was astonished, and so was
his wife. It looked mysterious. Why
Mr. Mason do it? They- could not
On his way .over, AVilliam paid the
butcher, the baker and grocer, and had
twenty dollars left, which would just
pay the doctor's bill. As the clock

" No, sir."

If he intended to swindle you, he

A Flock of Sheep Capture a
Thirty or forty sheep were being
driven down Walnut street yesterday
noon, when a leader, a sagacious look
ing old ram saw his reflection in one of
the large plate-glass windows ofMilo
Dodd & Co's. Safe store. Without
instant's hesitation the old fellow-
lowered his head and started for the
glass full tilt. Just as he reached it he
gave a tremendous jump, evidently ex
pecting to meet with allvely resistance.
His expectations were dashed, as was
the glass, it being smashed to atoms,
while the ram started on a run to the
back part of the store. The drove see
ing their leader disappearing, Imme
diately followed in his wake, and the
entire number jumped through the win
dow, and very nearly knocked down
and trampled upon two or three em
ployes. Amazed at the sudden and
startling attack they fled from the store,
leaving the drove in full possession.
Several of the sheep were badly cut by
broken glass, and bled over the floor;
bile the blood, the broken glass from
the window, and an overturned and
qroken show-case, gave the appearance
of being a total wreck. It was nearly
an hour before the sheep could be driv
en out and order restored. The drove
belonged to Mr. Mullhall.

An Enoch Arden of Lucas
A lady recently died in Lucas county,
Ohio, says the Toledo Blade, whose hus
band, having started to Philadelphia
with aU the money he could raise, some
eighteen years ago, did not return, was
not heard from, and was finally suppos-
ed to he dead. She, however, was slow
to believe this, and not until nine years
were passed could she be induced, after
much urging on the part of family and
friends, to marry a wealthy gentleman
of the neighborhood. Several years
went by, when one night her eldest son
(the only child by her first husband)
came in and reported having seen a
strange man near the house, It was ru-
moretl, too, in the neighborhood that a
stranger had been inquiring about the
lady in question, whom he spoke of bv
her former name. The husband and
wife heard of these rumors, which had
been associated with the lost husband's
name; she was troubled, but her bus-
baud treated. the juattexlightly. Three
years now passed, when the wife siul-
denly received a dispatch from New-
castle, Pennsylvania, urging her to
come there at once if she would see her
rightful husband alive. She went, in
company with the second husband, and
next day, ministered to by her, the first
husband died in her arms. He explain
ed how, on reaching Philadelphia so
long ago, and losing everything in the
speculation for which he visited that
city, he had embarked in a AA'est India
adventure, previously writing a letter,
which she did not receive, to Ids wife.
The voyage was disastrous, the vessel
was wrecked, and he only escaped with
his life. Then determining not to re
turn home until he had retrieved his for
