quiet huSuantT, "alKTHiat Now
York fellow, your friend Dulanoy ovor
there, seems to think so too."
"Sho Li beautiful," insisted Dora.
" Sho i " muttered Niva again, ' 'dangerously
benutiful."
What Itobcrt England said was nil
truo. Mnry gavo Dora her worship, nnd
thcro wns jealousy in tho ndobo homo of
Mary 'h mother aud hot battles for Mary.
"It is for tho American woman and her
no child that you desert your mother, "
armed Carmen. "Wo nro nothing to
you now, " with a sweep of her hand including
half a dozen very frightened
looking littlo rats of children. Mary
wns thinking nil tho timo that sho did
not liko scolding mothers and brothers
and sisters who wero unpleasant and
very dirty.
"Antonio," insisted Carmen to tho
big Mexican, her husband, who Bat
smoking his pipe with great calmness,
"tell tho girl that she cannot lcavo tho
houso; that sho shall never seo tho
American woman's faco again."
"I am going now," Mary haid. " I
shall never leave my swoct lady until
pho tells mo to go. Sho needs me. Sho
has told mo that sho needs mo."
' 'Sho has taught my daughter to disobey
her mother. You shall not go. It
Is my right, tho obedienco of toy children
I" screamed Carmen.
Dut by this timo Mary was running
down tho fitrect laughing. Tho big Antonio
went on smoking, and tho neighbors
como out of their houses to seo Carmen
and her unruly child
"Como back I" shouted tho mother.
But Mary always turned her laughing
Load and cried, "No, uol"
"May I tell yon nil nbout it?" Mary
said ono morning,
"All about what?" asked Dora, nnd
Mary cried: "Oh, tho most wonderful
thing has happened, tho most magnificent
thing. My cousin, who is a widow,
mourns 110 longer. Iler houso is a flno
place, as big as theso two rooms. Th
floor of her houso is not liko the earth
floor of tho houso of my father. It is a
floor of boards, all smooth planks. Last
night my cousin camo out of her mourning.
A great danco sho gavo to us alL
If you could seo our Spanish dances I
Wo havo egg shells hollow, gilded egg
shells. And, you see, wo aro to break
tho shells on tho head of tho ono that is
most dear to us. Tho girls aro to break
them on tho heads of tho men, and tho
men on tho heads of tho girls. And all
tho men havo broken their shells on my
head. And tho American man he, too,
has covered my hair with gold. See,
seo I" nnd blushing cruelly sho held
down her head, which sparkled with
flno gilt dust.
Thcro wcro jnoro (lances, and this wns
not tho last timo that tho gold glittered
in tho girl's hair.
"It is ominous, " Dora said to her
husband. ' 'I am afraid that Mary has
discovered that sho is beautiful."
"What is sho going to dowhen wo go
away?" asked Robert. "What is going
to bocomo of her?"
"How serious you arc," laughed
Dora, "I suppose) sho will go back to
her laundry."
At tho end of tho season, when tho
Euglonds went north again, Dora gavo
Mary many pretty gifts. When sho got
into tho train, sho held the baby up for
Mary to kiss nnd wns quito frightened
nt tho look on tho girl's face,
"It seems a pity, " Robert said. "A
good deal might havo been dono with
her, poor littlo pitiful thingl" And tho
train moved off, mid Mary went out of
tho station. But sho did not go back to
tho ndobo homo of Antonio and Carmen.
When Mrs. England heard of it, sho
cried a little, and sho did not look it
her husband's faco that day or tho next
day. Niva Sedgolcy told her. Niva was
not surprised. And in tho mcantimo
HoracoDulaney staid on at tho big hotel
until tho hot weather drove him away.

And then, without waiting: "It is a
good thing, dear lady, that you nro not

a careful woman mid tho big hotel is

"A prudent mother," was what Dora

Cleveland is Growing Old.
(Wash. Cor. Philadelphia North American.
President Cleveland is aging very
rapidly. Peoplo who bow him at his
last inauguration would scarcely know
him now if met him faco to faco
outsido of tho Whito Honse. His
mustaeho is no longer dark; his
erect staturo has given away
under the weight of official caro and
old Time; his oheeks are flabby and
colorless; ho has lost tho spring to
his stop, and bo now goes shuffling
along liko a man many years older
than ho is. His health is no longer
robust, as tho almost constant pros,
onoe of a physician at tho Whito
House indicates. For this, it for no
other reason, Mr. Cleveland docs not
care to longer remain Chief Executive.
All tho third-term talk is without his
sanction. It is extremely doubtful
if he conld survivo another campaign,
and certainly not another term as
President.

Democrats Urgod to Attond
tho Mass Conventions.
The Democrat conforenco at Henderson
recently attended by a largo number
of frco coinage Democrats from tho
Second district counties, appointed a
committee of six to prcparo an address
to Demoorats urging upon them tho importance
of attending tho mass conventions
at tho court houso on May 80 th.
Tho address is given below:
Address 10 Democrats.
To tho Democrats of the Second Congressional
District;
Forho first timo in tho history of
the country, the voters of tho Democratic
party aro called upon to dcoido
by their votes whether the principle of
birat tflllism, a tenet of tho Dcmocratio
party as old as the party itself, shall
oontinno to bo tho party law, or the
modern or English system of flnanpo
known as monometallism, based on a
single gold standard, tball tako its
place.
This is a gravo question and Kentucky
Democrats must assumo their
part of tho responsibility in tho accurate
Cotterpont pf tho vital question.
Tho advocates of this modern dootrino
until quite recently have been confined
to tho Republican party, but latoly they
have found enthusiasts allies in onr
own ranks.
Last year the Republican party in
this Stato, recruited by desertions from
single gold standard Demoorats, was
able to dofeat onr State tieket from top
to bottom. Encouraged by this success,
gontlomen claiming to bo
and the samo time adherents of tho
single gold standard, havo already
thoir pnrposo to commit tho
Democraoy of this Stato to thoir gold
standard theories and to adopt at the
Lexington convention June !!, a platform
conforming to their views and to
send a delegation to Chicago, pledged to
carry out thoir theories and to not in
concort with tho "money barons" of
Wall fitcot.
This Bcheme we hold to bo against
every interest of tho plain peoplo, not
only of our own, but of ovory State in
tho Union. The promoters of this gold
standard 6qhome are aidod in their policy
by tho aotjvo co-operation of tho present
national administration, likewise
by all tho daily newspapers published
in tho city of Louisvillo and by tho organized
money power of tho East. These
aro tho powerful, infiuonocs arrayed
against the plain people. Already they
nro boasting that they havo won tho
fight in Kentucky "But tho race is not
always to tho swift nor tho battle to the
strong."
Knowing tho rank and filo of Democrats
are still truo to party principles.
as expounded by Jefferson, Jackson and
every other real Dcmocratio leader sinco
their day, theso gold conspirators havo
determined to .defeat the popular will as
far as possible in the selection of dele
gates, and thereby prevent a full and
fair expression from all tho people.
Having boenred oontrol of tho members
of tho Stato Eiec&tivo Committeo,
that '.ho majority has determined upon
a return to the old and unfair system of
mass conventions at tho court houses as
tho best plan to guarantee that tho
county conventions to bo. held on tho of
80th this month will bo controlled by
rings and influences noting nndor their
domination.
Vigorous protest by tho friends of bi-
metaelism on this committee against this
unfair method of choosing delegates,
were unheeded. The advocates of this
unfair method well know that mass con
ventions was their only hopo of carrying
ont tho echemo of the gold standard
people.
They of conrso understood that this
system of mass convention at tho conrt
houso would neoessarily disfranchise a
large numbor of Demoorats living at a
distance, all or nearly all of whom aro
opposed to the present financial system,
could not well attond. We do not bolievo
that it can bo fairly maintained that tho
mass conventions nro calculated to reflect
tho real sentiment of tho mass of
tho Democratic voters of tho Stato. But
wo appeal to tho Dcmocratio voters of
tho Second congressional district, so
far as they are concerned, to thwart tho
pnrposo and rebnko tho Bcbomo of
those who havo thns attempted to disfranchise

Let Democrats in all tho counties
of this district, at whatever sacrifice
mako their arrangements to visit
their several oounty scats on tho COth
day of May and to participate In tho
mass conventions thon to bo hold and
to seo to it that tho delegates to
bo chosen to tho Lexington convention
shall bo men who will fairly and hon
estly reflect thoir will.
Wo boleive an overwhelming major
ity of tho Domoorats in tho Seoond
Congressional Distriot favor tho im-
mediato restoration of tho frco and unlimited
ooinago of gold and silver at tho
present legal ratio of 10 to 1, as such
ooinago oxisted prior to 1873, without
waiting for iho aid or oonsont of othor
nations, and tbatsuoh gold and silver
shall bo full legal tender for all debts,
publioand private We appeal to all
Democrats who hold that this is a
sonnd Domocratio dootrino to allow
nothing to prevent tljem from attending
their rcspeotivo mass conventions. is
We wero told in tho early days of tho
present administration, when a panio
was paralyzing ovory business of tho
country except that of tho money
shark, that if the purohase olauso of tho It
Sherman silver law was unconditionally
repealed, the business interest of the
country wonld at onco assumo a normal
condition and .that all tho ills wo
pearod to havo would vanish.
op-
Somo Demoorats did not bolievo this,
but tho administration with all its powerful
influences forced the unconditional
repeal of tho Sherman law. Wo
waited for tho panic, which was bogun
in Wall street pursuant to a sohemo
concocted thcro, to abato. All tho
laboring masses of tho country, professional
men, merohants, producers
overybody out sido of Wall street
with pated breath waited for speedy
of tho good times, which it was
tin til mnnlil fnlLllt. J II
""u wwuiu suiiuwiiu ioiiow on tno
of tho Sherman law.
What has been tho result? Havo tho
good times come? Has business revived?
Has labor found employment?
Has tho general paralysis whioh pervaded
tho whole country ceased? Nol
on tho contrary tho panio of 1803 whioh
was fraudulently and cruelly thrust no-op
tho country by the samo influences
which oro to day attempting' to fix
irrevocable upon the county a singlo
gold standard is still with ns.
ab ono 01 tne legitimate consequences
of tho present false financial system
a Dcmocratio administration has
issued 8202,000,000, of bonds, whioh
bear interest from their dato, and
which would amount beforo maturity
to moro than $507,000,000, or a per
captia dobt upon the en tiro population
of tho country of moro than $3.
This is tho record which the gold
standard people of this country havo
mado within tho past two years; this
is tho ponalty whioh the people aro to
pay for tho glorious blessing of "sonnd
raonoy."
It is not bolicvod that tho thoughtful
mon will endorso a financial system
which cost them so mnch. If tho pres
ent system, which the undersigned
is vicious in tho extreme, is not to
bo continued, then tho voters of tho
Dernocratia party a party whioh has
always boasted that it was tho advocate
of tho wholo people must see to it
that tho delegates who aro sont to tho
Ohioago eonvcntion arocommittod to
tho repeal of tho present vicious financial
system.
"Stato pride" is to cut no figure.
Kentucky has already lost a Democrat'
io Governor and a Domocratio Senator,
and it is freoly charged and not without
much ovidenco upon which to base
tho obargo, that theso dofcats aro
attributable to tho influences which
havo dictated mass county conventions
in tho hope that tho popular will might
bo dofcatod,
A Democratic eeeretary of tho treasury
has boon openly charged with fail
ing to vote for a Democratio nominee
at our last Stato election and with
certain alleged Democratic
members of tho recent Kentucky legis
lature to voto against tho Kentucky
Domocratio nominee for the United
States Senator. If ho has donied these
charges his denial has not yet como to
cur notice. Truo ho consented to say
ho did not voto for tho Republican
nominee for Governor in tho late election
bnt ho does not say that he voted
for tho Domocratio nominee, nor that
ho did not enccurago Democrats in the
recent legislature to withhold their support
from tho regular Democratic
nominco for United States Senator.
Ho has contented himself with a species
of special pleading which will continue
to leavo tho impression that he has not
been loyal .to tho nominoes of tho
Democratio party who happened to
with him on tho financial question
This is tho situation as we understand
it and if the will of tho people is
to bo refleotod in tho common Stato
convention thoy must rally to their
county mass meotings and send delegates
to reflect their will and with instructions
to condemn tho deserters and
bolters from our ranks, who havo given
aid and comfort to a common political
enemy.

Qon. Leo need to toll a story about
a uarkey that served in tno war. It
seems during tho heat of tho battle
tho Oonoral and his attendants wero
posted on a small knoll watching tho
conrso of thejaction. Thoy discovered
a oolorcd soldier racing towards them,
leaping ovor obstacles in bis path,
his (faco blanched with fear. Ho
rushed up, and foil headlong on tho
ground In front of Loe, crying:
"Oh, massa, General, let mo stay
horo."
Loo saw at onco that tho man was
almost frightpned to death, and usoless
as a eoldier. It disgusted him
but his curiosity was aroused
and ho asked:
''Did yon como hero to got out of
tho way of tho bullets?"
"Yes, maBsa: wbero do gonerals am

Sleep where their friends cannot fiud them

Rest where they wearied and He where thev felt.

Shifra, the wife of Adolph Kohn, ol
No. 83 Orchard street, was about n.na
yeors ago a cook in a family in Yasd,
Koumaniu. That section of Europe is
overrun with lotteries.
One day, according to Shifra's story,
sho succumbed to tho honeyed words
of a lottery ogent, who regularly visit
ed her village, and Invested tho grcator
part of her month's wages in a ticket
whioh gave her ono chanco out of a
million or moro of winning tho capital
prizo of 50,000 francs.
Hut when her mistress told her of tbe
eeght chanco sho ran of winning such a
prize, Shifra bewailed her precipitanoy
in having invested so much of her hard-earned
money in such a game. When
hor mistress offered to buy tho tioket
from her she gladly accepted. '
Adolph Kohn was engaged to be married
to Shifra's mistress. She had told
him about Shifra's purchase of tho lottery
ticket. Ho thought littlo of that,
bowovor, until about two weeks later.
Then, in tho villago inn, ho happened
upon his friond, tho lottery ngeut, who
hod sold Shifra tho tiekot.
Tho agont confidod to Kohn that
Shifra's ticket had drawn tho capita
prize of 60,000 francs. Ho immediatly
decided that tho sorvant maid with a
power of 50,000 francs ($10,000) would
bo a better wife for him than her mistress.
So ho straightway transferred
his affections from mistress to maid.
Poor Shifra was won by tho unexpected
attentions which young Kohn
paid her. Tho courtship was short,
oven for that country, and within a fow
hours Shifra had become tho wifo of
her mistress's quondam lovor.
Onco moro chanco played tho winning
hand in this littlo game, Shifra's mistress
had neglected to tell Kohn that
she had bought tho lottery tioket from
her maid. And grief at the loss of ber
lover made her forbear telling him after
tho marriage.
On the night of tho wedding Kohn
asked Shifra about tho lottery ticket.
Ho could havo strangled ber whon she
told him that sho had sold tho slip.
Neither Shifra nor her mistress knew
that tho ticket had drawn tho capital
prizo. But tho next day tho lottery
agent announoed the good news.
Now to tho griof Adolph suffered at
tho loss of the girl ho really loved and
tho money for wbioh ho jilted her wero
added tho sneering jibes of his frionds
in tho villago. Ho conld not stand this
humiliation and soon loft Yassi to como
to America. v
Mrs. Kohn came to this city last July
and a fow months later Adolph began
suit for divorce.
