Miss Dillinejliiim w as dcatl nnd Miss Curtis was in tears. She sut up in her own room sobbing bitu-rly while, the hist iatl oflices wore bcin perfornied. Sho hail ;oo(l reason to weep, poor joul, for alio had lot her only friend on earth. "She diud so suddenly, loo," thought tho hapless spin.ster, "ll'itit hlie made no provision for me.

Why, she meant to give me a legacy. Whv, if I could ask her now, sho'd say, 'Take it, Theresa.' I can hear ber good old voice. She'll havo that too, for the lawyer said, 'If no will was found, her next of kin would havo ev erything.' I declare," said Miss Theresa (y'urti.s. wioinz her tears away, "I mean to havo that cabinet. I'll get il and it will just go into one of my trunks. Miss , Dillingham would say I was right, and . I'll do it.'v Miss Curtis having said this, arose ni crept softly down into the dressing room next the bedroom, where all was now so still and terrible. She took tho cabinet from its nail, and crept upstairs nd hid it in her trunk with a feeling that some one might be at her heels ready to call "stop thief!" To bo sure, she knew well enough that old Miss Dillingham would gladly have given her tho cabinet; that her wnsln Spear was not a favorite, that the old lady would havo preferred that she .should "take all sho possessed to giving it to the person of whom she - always spoke distastefully as "that Sally Spear." , But all tho same, that silent cteeping ever tho stairs, past tho door where the watchers sat togetherthat moment when she laid tho cabinet in her trunk and covered it with folded garments, gave Hiss Theresa Curtis a sense of - having been a thief. Sho never forgot the ao tion. or censed to feel ashamed of it. Time stalked away, using his scythe ns usual. The funeral was over. Search was ioado for the will. Mrs. Spear was declared heiress to all, and Miss Curtis, who still occupied tho house, was noti fied to leave. Fat Mrs. Spear waddled about tho I Louse ami talked of the changes she would make; and Theresa Curt is sought cabman to convey her trunks ton cheap boHrding-house. She was livc-and -forty, and had lived with Miss Dillingham for lifieen years. Her wages as companion had allowed her to accumulate a few pounds, but sho had hod "expectations." In her kind heart she never reproach ed Miss Dillingham for having left them unfulfilled. And sometimes as she trot ted about answering advertisements and failing to please", it occurred to her that when they met in heaven they would have a great deal to talk over. "I know she's sorry sho didn't mako a will," thought poor Theresa, "and 1 shall tell her just how Sally Spear took on herself. I'm sure she'll be glad I hid the cabinet." And yet the deed troubled her. At last Theresa found a situation as nursery governess. They were five children to teach, dress, and walk out with. They had been used to a cherry cheeked, light-handed girl, and teased the serious middle-aged woman all day long. Still she bore it, until nt last mmma declared that she had no disci pline, and oiico more she went in search f an employer. Sho found an old lady who wanted a companion, hut, alas! someone unlike gtM.d Miss DiUiiiL'hani a fashionable! oid lady who desired to havo her hair dressed in the latest style, and lo have her lap-dog curled and combed; w ho went to balls presumably to chaperon , best in tho country.

Ana all ended, In an izcominous reproof ntnl dismissal. . After this a school received Miss Tho (ta io iu bosom. She endeavored to tench the English branches and received no salary. Fi aallj. sheriff Appeared on the scene, and tbe poor lady fled before him with her trunks; and so from year to year ill luck pursued her, nntil, in the end, it eeurred to her to "go out nursing." Having a kind heart and a licht step, she iunuiieu to live nt thin, tt wiui a 1 kard life, but sho kept it up for 5 years; and nil this whilo tho cabinet still re- mained where ho had put it, in the bot- torn of her black trunk It wa9 tho yellow onn thnt sho carried about with nor; tho black onn watt stored in tho garrct-room in which alio slept when not enyajed.

She unlocked the door of the shining little case, taking tho key from her pock et to do so, and a little" letter case fell out, and it was a letter. It was address ed to Miss Theresa Curtis. "Why, you've left a letler here, said Mrs. Spear cheerfully. "Havo you got another key?" "A letter?" cried poor Theresa, turn ing frightfully pale. "Read it to mo, Dr. Good." The clergyman opeuod tho letter. "t)i:.K TllEItliSA,' It brn, "I feel n Htiuniii' prcHoiitimcnt Hint I nlii.ll rile anon. It I HhmiM not leave a will you II have nothlnir.

"It is a perfect will," remarked the clergyman, looking on the other side ot tbo paper. "Doubtless it would have oeen sumcieni. , Mrs. Spear sank into a chair.

Take warning!" She sank back. "Why, the money and everything is yours now," said Mrs. Spear dolefully. "I'm not one to go against the will ot the dead. Though why she disliked me I don't know. It's startling, but I'll give up everything I why, Ther esa Curtis, what is i'?'' Miss Curtis was pointing straight bo fore her. "Don't you see her?" she said. "Don't you hear her? Sho says: 'I've come for you, Theresa I always told you what a goose you were.' I've yes, I'm coming, dear, I'm coming." She paused. An utter silence follow ed, and the nurse stepped forward soft ly and laid a handkerchief across hoi lace. Sho was dead. An Editor Who Was Down on Poetry. "So you don't publish poetry in your papor, colonel," said an acquaintance to an Arkansaw editor. "No, sir; I stopped some timo ago, but at ono time my paper was known for its poetic contributions. I had ono contributor whose work ranked with tbe ing expression that greatly pleased my "Didn't you like him?" asked tho ac quaintance when the colonel paused. "Liked him well enough at first, bnt ho insulted mo." "How?" "Why, sir, tho second night after his arrival he got up whilo I was asleep and stolo my bunday breeches. Since then 1 have not printed a line of poetry." LUlkllock QazctU. 8iitT Feet Under the Sea. 'I was onno a diver not a wrecker but a pc.arl diver and hard business it WttS(" recently observed tho captain of a Spanish briz to a reporter of thoCali fornia Times. "Wo worked off tho Mex ican and Panama coasts, principally on tlio Pacific side. Sometimes wo worked alone, but generally on shares and some times for pay. We wont to tho grounds in small sailing vessels, then wc took to the small boats and covered ns much around as possible. Kach man had a bariket, a weight, and a knife. For sharks? Yes; but it is a poor defense, for it is almost impossible to .swing tho arm with any force under water. Tho best wennon is a short spear. When you reach tlio ground you strip, pui your feet in a biz sinker, tako the b:uk was on one of these trips that I ran afoul of the animal that gave me a lasting fight. You will smile when 1 say it was onlv a star fish, but that it really was. WPt down sixty feet with a rush and, landing on the edge of a big branch of (!oral, swung oil' into a kind of basiu. i'ho b:wKet went ahead of me, and, as I 'swung oft' to reach the bottom, some- thing seemed to sprinz up all around pie, and I was in the arms of some kind pf n monster that coiled about my body, arms a -,.ui,1? my wb vnd lczs. 1 tried to scream, for- Z that 1 was in the water, and lost iud. It was iust as if tho plant w . bad sprouted under me and then threw its vines and tendrils about me. There were thousands of them coiling and winning, aim i inuiini i miu lanuuu in a nest of sea snakes.' I gave tho si: a,s soon as I could, nnd made a br upward, part of the creature cliugin; gave mo siznai eak upward, part ot me creature cuuging to uie, whilo the rest, I coulil see, was dropping to pieces. They hauled me iuto the boat, when I reached the sur face, and pulled the main part of the animal from nio. It was oval, about three feet across, and the five arms seemed to divide into thousands of oth ers. I probably landed on top of that one, whieli at that time wad tho largest I had ever seen. I afterward saw tho body of one that was washed ashore on tho Isthmus that must have had a spread of thirty-live feet. Their power of gratfpinz is considerable, but touch them in a certain way and they throw oil' their arms i:i a regular shower, and tiro soon redu'-vd to an oval body. Trauk Frayne's Eifla. The Wnjon With Which Mi-.s Von Buhren wal KilleJ Dcla. ed lo Have Been Badly Neglected. Wfu n Frank Yr. tie, the actor who shot Mi.-s Von I'ehrcn at the Coliseum theatre Thanksgiving day, was acquit ted by Judge Iliglcy in tho police court he stepped into the ollice of the chief of police. There he met Sergt. Iennin ger, whoso duty it had been to arrest him, and to him ho gave the fatal ritle, with tho remark that he appreciated tho officer's kindness and uoiieacy, and wished him to keep it as a memorial of the sad occasion. Tho sergeant has re cently had tho gun examined by John Gintor, turnkey at Bremen street sta tion, and an ofd and experienced gun smith, and it was found to be in a very bad condition, and much in need of repairs. It will be remembered that at the coroner's inquest Mr. Frayne sworo that a few minutes before ho fired tho deadly shot ho examined tho weap on, finding it in good condition. Tlio turnkey discovered that tho lever screw, or tho screw uniting the barrel to the stock, and upon which it turns like a pivot, was very much worn and bunt. So long had it" been used that tho head was almost smooth, so that the screw driver could scarcely be held in it. This little bit of stccf is about two inches long, and when takf n out it Is so bent that it is arched, (iinter says that if the spring which broke, causing the terrible accident, was in the same neglected condition, tho only wonder is that tho slip did not take plaCo long be fore. He is of tho opinion that when the screw is in place if tho curve were up it, would place tho barrel in such ft position as to render the catching of it by tho spring an impossibility,, thus de flecting the barrel from a straight line with tno stock, and iu tho effort to press it into place tho spring might have been broken, or at least strained. Not only is tho screw out of order, but the needlo which is driven forward by tho trigger, discharging the gun, strikes, as can easily bo seen, in the wrong place. It should strike tho cap of tho cartridge fair in tho center, but instead of so do ing it hits it on tho side. In reply to tho question as to what he intended to do with tho rifle, Sergt. Itenninger said that he would havo it sent to a locksmith, put in thorough good order, and instead of keeping it as a curiosity would put it to a practical uso in hunting and target shooting. Ho takes a great deal of prido iu tho weap on, and loves to linger on the tragic do tails of tho story when he tells how it camo in his possession. When the lev er screw ami spring arc renewed, ho thinks he will have as good a ffun as tlioro is in tho country, in spite of its six years' theatrical service CVwci'n- VII H UaZi'tlr. Do you agree to take this woman U bo your lawful and wedded wife, t freeze to her through thick and thin henceforth and forever?

Such was tho ceremony employ ed by an Atlanta, fia., justice of tbe peace who officiated nt a marriago iu that citv. Inasmuch as tho young man answered "Yes." it is unnecessary to nay that a negative answer would havo placed him under bonds more irksome than those of a hymeneal nature. Bt.
