J HER GKEAT SUCCESS $ »»♦»♦♦♦♦ • ♦♦♦♦ » ♦ • ♦♦♦g» » HAT a statuesque beauty!'' in admiring tone, haughty, arrogant girl,'' spitefully. I glanced up at the speakers; the first was the good-looking young clerk from Shlllito's—the second, a sour-faced lit tle old maid, with the usual frizzes, etc. The object of their remarks had pass ed from the lorig, low dining-room of our rather select boarding-house, into the hall, and from thence slowly out into the street, a sad, abstracted ex pression upon her sweet, pale face. I had noticed her particularly at din ner-studied her face to my heart's content, and without the slightest dan ger of attracting her attention. Not ouce had she raised her eyes from the plate; not once given the social board ers a curious glance. No, it was easy enough to discern that we were of small importance to her—so small that she seemed utterly unconscious of our presence. A beautiful, saddeued face, such as In my old bachelor life I had seldom seen; fine, clear-cut features; lovely, transparent complexion; a small, sen sitive mouth, with vivid, crimson lips, and a mass of braided, gold-brown hair that looked to be her own. I had not met her eyes, but I im agined they must be fine and soulful; and while pondering over her strange manner and pale, sweet face I caught the various opinions and remarks Hung about promiscuously. "A poet's face with a story in it." loftily offered Miss May Benton, the blonde heiress, and being a privileged boarder she turned to our landlady and inquired: "Mrs. Smith, do enlighten us as to our silent neighbor." "Indeed, Miss May, I know but little myself; she came highly recommended, and particularly requested to remain undisturbed. I have not exchanged a dozen sentences with her. Her name is Faith Diusmore—that is all I cau tell you." For my own part I was silent; there was a look in the absent girl's face that rebuked rude questioning. The days came and went, and we became no better acquainted with Miss Diusmore. The ladies pronounced her "queer," "proud," "unsocial;"—the gen tlemen "lovely," "charming," and fol lowed her retreating form with admir ing glances. Once only had I met her eyes, or be held her calm face betray any con sciousness of our lively table talk. Some, one mentioned an impending murder trial, as she took her place at the table. "A young desperado! and quite de serving the fate in store for him," vouchsafed apother, heartlessly. "But so young, he may not be entire ly bad," kindly Interposed Miss Ben ton. "True, and he will put up the plea of self-defense they tell me." "Llttlte will It avail him. poor and friendless. He is pretty certain of a life seutence at least." At this point I accidentally glanced toward Miss Dinsmore, and the start ling pallor of her face, and her great, wide-open eyes, held a bunted, despair ing expression that was truly painful. By a strong effort she recovered her lost composure, and soon passed out of our presence,, but the anguish ex pressed In ber face haunted me for days. One day, seated in my sanctum—for I was an editor—a lady was ushered Into my presence, who upon raising ber veil revealed the sweet face of our mysterious boarder. "Miss Dinsmore," I said, kindly; ''please be seated." > With a silent bow of recognition, she sunk into tbe offered chair, and drew forth a large package, evidently of manuscript. "It Is a story," she said, in the sweet est, saddest voice I had ever heard; "not a first effort, by any means; I have been writing for years—but not as this is written. Please examine it soon, for If declined I mast try else where. My price Is five hundred Kol lars." "Five hundred dollars-" "Yes, I know what you would say. I understand your surprise perfectly. I only ask you to read it Perhaps when I tell yob a life, dearer than my own, depends upon my obtaining the money, it will not seem so astounding." And with a bow she was gone, while 1. stood dumbfounded, holding In my hands the manuscript for which so large a price was asked. I sat down and opened it, my curi osity being strongly aroused. Tbe handwriting was graceful and the manuscript bore no signs of a novice. I began reading it—1 continued readlug It. The office-boy came in and told me it was 6 o'clock. With an Impatient command I sent him from my pres ence, and still read on, until tbe last page was reached and the word finis written. 1 was an old bachelor, as I have said, little given to rhapsodies or extrava gant praise, accustomed to all the agonies of authors' dreams; but some thing different ■ had crept Into that story; it may have been a woman's bleeding heart—for every page was full of exquisite tenderness and patbos; It may have been the life she said it represen téd; at any rate, it was a bril liant effort, and ^ell worth the price naked. That night, eager to give her the satisfaction of knowing that her story was accepted, I sent a note by our good landlady. She came the next day for her cbecln white, cold, statuesque as ever, save a new light in ber eyes and a tremor in her voice. The days crept by; her story, pub lished in Installments, became the rage; It was an Immense success; but if she enjoyed its reception she gave no sign. The studying of her lovely face had been a dangerous pastime. I found myself waiting for her coming, watch-* ing her often, myself unseen, uncared for, until I awoke one day to find my self madly In love, and that, too, with a woman almost unconscious of my ex istence. At last she failed to appear at our table, and took long, walks, coming back wearied and more deathly pale than before; a few days passed in this manner and I was becoming alarmed, when my attention was attracted to an impending murder trial. Two young men had quarreled vio lently, the quarrel ending in Charles Rybolt shooting his adversary. Vast differences of opinion existed, for young Itybolt had been a most exem plary young man previously, and ear nestly declared it to have been done in self-defense. Feeling interested in the case. I vis ited tbe court-room, and on glancing toward the prisoner, to my great sur prise 1 beheld our mysterious boarder— Miss Dinsmore, seated at his side, her face no longer cold and imperturbable, but anxious, earnest, alive to every word that fell from their lawyer's lips. The boy—he was scarcely more—held her hand, and only one glance was needed to proclaim their relationship brother and sister. I knew then whose life she had writ ten that story to save, and ceased to wonder at its power and beauty. The five hundred dollars had employed the famous criminal lawyer, whose shrewd and adroit reasoning was surely clear ing his client of any intentional wrong doing. Murder in self-defense It undoubted ly had been; and when the decision was brought in, it was "Not Guilty." I pressed my way forward and found them surrounded by friends giving forth exclamations of thanksgiving But my darling lay unconscious upon her brother's breast. The long strain of weeks had given way when she knew her work was ended. It was days before she was able to sit up in her cushioned chair and re ceive me—the shy, sweet blushes com ing and going. "I know who has been our good friend during my illness; Charlie has told me; and when I am stronger, if another story will pay the debt I will be only too glad to write it." "Nay," 1 said, "there is a better way," and then 1 told her how. and fourni the arrangement altogether agreeable. It was years ago. I am an old man now, and my daughter Mary comes to me and asks: "Papa, who wrote that pretty story in your scrap book—the sad one, 1 mean?" "Couldn't you guess, my pet?" "The style reminds me of mamma's stories, only hers all end so happily and that is all tears; was it mamma?" "Yes, my dear." and then, for the first time, I tell her of that long ago. "And was it really uncle Charlie, whom we all love so .much? Why, he is now a popular minister. Poor mam ma!" "Happy mamma!" I reply, smoothing my little daughter's curls, for a sweet voice humming a lullaby comes to us from an adjoining room.—The Hearth stone. The Wounds or a Friend The small boy who wrote the follow ing letter was so eager to express his gratitude that he did not notice just what bis letter seems to Include under benefits received: "Dear Uncle Thad." he wrote.

Mr. Gilbert's "Pooh-Bah" was clever at accumulating offices and titles, but a Maine man wbose biography is print ed in a local paper seems to have the advantage of him, In some respects. This gentleman, who had previously served a long apprenticeship elsewhere, was, in 1883, engaged by a narrow gauge railroad as conductor. In 1888 he was appointed superin tendent, which position he bolds at the present day; but he is more than super intendent now. He is a director, gen eral freight and passenger agent, pur chasing agent, station agent, conductor, brakeman, baggage master, mail clerk, express agent and telegraph operator. When he was elected Town Treas urer, four years ago, somebody compli mented him with the remark that, so far as the town and tbe railroad were concerned, he seemed to have no more worlds to conquer. But then, with a twinkle in his eye, the man of many offices told a story of a- farmer who, visiting the city, was congratulated on his appointment as postmaster. "You must be quite a man in your town now, Silas." remarked the friend. "Well, yes," answered Silas. "You see, besides being postmaster, I am the town clerk, a member of the school committee, tax collector, selectman, correspondent for the Bee, a paper printed up our way, express agent and road commissioner." "Is that so, Silas. You must hold pretty near all the important offices in your town." "No," said Silas, dejectedly. "You know Rube Simpkins? Well, he's con stable." Providing for the Future. "That was a very liberal allowance you made your titled son-in-law." "Yes," answered the American mil lionaire. „ "Don't you think you will encourage him in habits of idleness." "Not a bit of it.
