AT TIE TELEPIOIIE.
I was the happiest man in the city as
I folded and laid away in my pocket
book a letter from the dearest girl in
the world, and jumped on-the horse car
en route for my office.
Some months had passed since I saw
my Agnes for the first time at dinner at
Peytons. I had frequently met Miss
Georgie Peyton in society, and had
been several times invited to her recep
tions, so I was not surprised to receive
one day an invitation to dine with her
"informally," to meet a young lady
from Aiken, S. C. Of course Ipresent
ed myself at this informal dinner in
full evening dress, where I met some
other gentlemen in similar attire—Clark
son was one of them—and a few young
ladies, and was introduced to my Agnes.
If I could only make you see her as
she appeared to me that night—so fresh
and blooming the blue of her clear
peaceful eyes the delicious curve of the
delicate lips! But enough that then
and there I yielded, and became her ar
Fron the first she distinguished me
with her favor. Iwas allowed to claim
the best dances they were always my
flowers that she carried, and finally,
for she returned to Aiken, I was her
The year had flown swittly, and now
a brilliant prospect seemed to open be
fore me. My firm were about to estab
lish a branch department in another
part of the city, and proposed to make
one of their clerks a junior partner and
manager of the now concern. I had
been the longest in the employ, and had
reason to think I was regarded with
favor by "Old Gruff"—as Mr Gruffland,
the senior partner, was called—and he
would be the one to make the promo
tion and settle the question of salary.
Indeed, for some weeks I liatl seen
that he was working the management
into my hands, sol felt justified in writ
ing to Agnes, tirging our immediate
union. The clear girl consented, and
in her letter received that morning she
told me she was comiug again, to mako
along visit at the Peytons, to "do some
shopping." Entrancing words!
Well, she came. There was a de
mure but delightful meeting at the sta
tion, and an enchanting 20 minutes,
until I delivered her to Miss Georgie's
arms at the Peyton's door.
Then followed days of devotion to
work, followed by evenings of unal
loyed bliss. I say unalloyed" but thore
was one draw-back. The Peyton fam
ily were very considerate, Miss Georgie
especially so, but my darling Agnes was
haunted with the fear that they would
think her visit to them was only
to enjoy my society, and was con
stantly suggesting that we should
join the family in the sitting room."
Old Mrs Peyton was a bore, but a mild
one—paterfamilias an imitigated one
Miss Georgie was benignant, but slight
ly tiresome. There was only one other
member of the family, a pretty little
fellow named Ralph, but the girls had
taken to calling him Raphael, from some
fancied resemblance to one of the Sis
tine cherubs. He seemed a quiet little
chap, with a sweet innocence of express
ion and demeanor, who posed a good
deal of the time with his cheek on his
hand after the manner of the cherub
Agnes had been in the city a few
weeks when, one morning, the tele
phone bell in our office rang sharply.
This was of frequent occurrence and
Clarkson's desk was stationed near it to
save time in answering the call. The
rest of us scarcely looked up as the fa
miliar "Hullo!" was shouted, or the
concluding "All right! I'll tell Mr.
Gruffland. Good by!" But this morn
ing Clarkson turned to me with: "This
is for you, Dixon!" Accordingly I
shouted "Hullo!" and in return heard
Miss Georgie's voice:
"Is that you Mr. Dixon Agnes is
here and wants to try to speak to you."
Then I heard her giving directions.
"Stand a little nearer press this close
to your ear—so."
"Good morning," I called.
In return I heard a giggle, and my
Agnes' voice exclaiming "Oh, oh! It
tickles my ear!" Then more directions
from Miss Peyton, and at last the sweet
est voice in the world began in as near
ly as might be a stentorian roar:
"Is that really you, Harry? Isn't
this perfectly sweet? Are you sure
they can't hear in the office, Georgie
"Well," from Georgie, "I should say
they certainly could, if you shout like
"Harry," in a half whisper, "if you
are sure it's you, and that no one else
can hear, I want to tell you something.
Do you remember that queer Miss Blake
in Allen Do you hear me, Harry
"Yes," I returned.
Then another little giggle. "Isn't it
too funny? Do you know Harry, now
that I see liow to use it, I'm going
to talk to you ever so often. Won't it
be fun But where was I Dear me
how stupid! Oh. I know, Miss Blake.
Well, she has just sent me the love
Here Clarkson muttered, "Old Graff's
coming," and knowing he would ask an
explanation of my receiving the tele
phone messages, I was obliged to abrubt
ly interrupt: "I must go now"—I had
almost said "my darling," "Tell me
the rest this evening."
"But, Harry!" I heard in a grieved
little voice but Mr. Griiffland's foot
steps were too near, and I hung up the
receiver upside down, and hurried back
to my desk.
All day I worked in nervous despera
tion. Would she try to resume the
conversation? Every time the bell
rang I glanced at Clarkson. The
thought that it might be her voice whis
pering in his great red ear covered me
with cold perspiration. The fear that
in Mr. Gruffland's hearing I might be
called upon to answer some of her chat
ter was still worse. I made up my mind
that I must mike Agnes understand
that very night that she could not amuse
herself in that way, and I did so gently,
but resolutely. I described Clarkson's
ear, and I took some liberties with it.
It would be just like the wretch to re
ceive all her little confidences and retail
them for the amusement of the clerks.
Old Gruff was an ogre, capable of dis
missing me without warning, if I did not
attend every minute to my business.
Our hopes of happiness depends upon
his good pleasure. Miss Peyton was
cool and dignified. I suppose she knew
I was exaggerating. Agnes looked hurt.
Her sweet lips trembled a little and her
eyes were suspiciously dim. I longed
to have her alone for a little while to
comfort her, as I knew I could but
there was no chance, for although Minn
Georgie relented sufficiently to go up
stairs to write an "important letter,"
Raphael was there, resting his elbow on
the table and looking up at Agnes with
an expression of deep pity in his beauti
ful but sleepy dark eyes.
And yet the next day the same thing
occurred. Mr Gruff was there, and
looked up from his papers with a glance
of disapproval as I took Clarkson's
place at the telephone. My "Hullo"
was rather savage.
"Oh, Harry, do forgive me! Indeed
I felt so sorry last night, and wanted to
tell you so but, you see, Ralph was
there. I'm all alone now. Oh, Harry,
won't you forgive me?"
"Of course," I returned, feeling
Graff's eyes burning unpleasantly on
the nape oi my neck.
"Oh, Harry, dear, don't talk like that
to me. Do say you love me.''
Was there ever such a child? I felt
like a cold blooded wretch as-I hurried
"All right. I'll come up as soon as I
can. Very busy now. Good by!"
I felt, rather than heard, a little sob
at the other end of the wire. Gruff said
nothing, but I was doomed to another
miserable day. I managed to ask
Clarkson, if I was called again, to say
I could not attend, and five times I heard
him give this message, and each time he
turned away with a mighty grin. What
might not Agnes have said to him
Of course, I hurried to the Peytons,
determined to see her alone. She came
running into the hall to meet me, bright
and loving, but the annoyances of the
day had made me cross, and I said curt
"Really, Agnes, it is very strange you
don't understand that a man cannot take
his business hours to talk with his
friends. After all I said last night, I
must say I was surprised to be called
up again to-day
Agnes stopped abruptly, and said,
"I do not understand you!"
"Why, my dear little girl," I said
sobered by the change in her manner,
"I do not mean to be cross, but how
could I talk to you about my affection
and forgiveness through the telephone,
with all those fellows listening, to say
nothing of old Gruff?"
"But I have not touched the tele
phone to-day, Harry!"
"Georgie?" called Agnes, stepping
back to the sitting room, and I followed
to tell the story.
It is very strange," said Miss Peyton,
'but of course it is some mistake. The
lines are out of order or crossed in some
way. But mamma and Agnes and I
have been out shopping all day, and
we lunched down town, so we can
prove an alibi."
It certainly was very strange, but we
all concluded that it might be as Miss
Georgie suggested and the pater at
once began to spin long yarns about
queer messages till at last I coaxed
Agnes into the conservatory alone, and
the close of the evening was all the
brighter for the shadow with which it
began. The dear girl sympathized with
me and forgave my impatience, and was
so sweet that before I knew, I found
myself telling her the one event of my
life I had determined to keep secret—
the little entanglement I once had with
Lucret'ia Chase. Of course, she had
been to blame, and Agnes thought her
very horrid and forward, so I had to
admit that Cretia had misunderstood
some things I had said to her when a
mere boy, and then Agnes asked me if
I really, really loved her best, Ah me!
what a happy evening it was!
Again the next day the telephone an
noyance began, but I felt sure of my
ground, and told Clarkson he could re
fuse to listen. Imagine my surprise
when he turned to me with a clever imi
tation of Agnes' voice, saying:
"She is quite sure Harry will come
when he knows she wants to talk to him
I was thunderstruck! Lucretia Chase
lived in Vermont I was morally sure
no one in the city knew of her exist
ence—no one but Agnes. I rushed to
the instrument. It was the same girl's
clear voice. How could any one have
know that Cretia possessed some idiotic
lines I had once written her—any one
but Agne3 Yet now I heard them re
Oh, Cretia! fairest valentine!
Wilt thou accept this hand of mine!
A smaller gift mwoul forbids
Bnt ten's the number of my kids!
I turned away in anger and surprise,
only to meet old Graff's grim glance.
"If this thing goes on, Mr. Dixon, it
might be well for you and Mr. Clarkson
to change desks!
"I knew what that implied, and my
heart sank to my boots.
"I do not understand it myself," I re
plied. "I assure you, sir, that I am
exceedingly annoyed. I will not an
swer it sgain."
'I will, myself, sir," he growled,
and I went back to my desk to upset
my ink bottle, to make mistakes in my
accounts, and torture myself with the
conviction that since no one but Agnes
could have sent the message, she was
teasing me without realizing the fatal
consequences to our happiness. And
all day Mr. Gruffland would answer
that confounded telephone. That some
of the messages were meant for me I
could tell, and that they must be utter
nonsense I could conjecture from his
occasional comments: 'ByJimminy,
Johnson!'is a remarkable expression
for a young lady, Mr. Dixon."
It would be too long to tell the story
of these days in detail. Sometimes they
would be respite, and then the nonsense
would begin again. It was larks for
Clarkson and the rest, but to me it
seemed as if the bell of the telephone
was ringing the knell of my bright hopes.
Agnes assured me of her innocence, and
Miss Peyton was ready with explana
tions they had been shopping or prac
ticing duets. Bnt I could see that a
coolness had come between Agnes and
me. She feared that I doubted her and
I—what could I think? Again and
again the messages referred to what I
had said to her when quite alone.
Could she have repeated my confiden
At tho office, preparations for the new
business were being carried on, and not
one word had been said to me of pro
motion. To crown all, Agnes informed
me one evening that she was going to
shorten her visit she liad heard of
friends going directly to Aiken and
thought it best to secure their escort. I
passed a wretched evening, but left, de
termined to make a desperate effort
to clear the mystery. Agnes had
told me that they were all to
be out the next day, so I begged off at
the office, reached the house at 10, and,
persuading the servant that I wanted
rest, and would let myself out when I
was ready, I managnd to conceal myself
in a closet in the hall, where I waited
four mortal hours. A light came through
the hall, a chair was drawn up to the
telephone, and a clear voice, wonder
fully like Agnes', called "Please con
nect with Gruffland & Co!"
Waiting only long enough to let him
actually begin conversation in his usual
style, I rushed out, and, catching the
culprit by the arms, bestowed a resound
ing box upon the ear of the astonished
Mr. Raphael. The little imp! This
was his revenge for his well deserved
snubs. I have no doubt he had heard
every word of my conversation with
Of course the Peytons were distressed
and apologetic, and Agnes was per
80*164 not to hurry away, and oltl Gruff
relented and I got the promotion in due
time, but I never could endure the fight
of that cherubic boy, I verily lie
lieve that the box I bestowed upon htm
was his only punishment, and I rejoioe
to think it was such a stinger!
If this story has a model it is a short
one. The more innocent and guileless
a boy looks, the lesshe is to be trusted.
Kra. Grant the Family Fiaudir.
Letter from Galena: Gen. Grant
was never a good hand to look
after money matters. He used to
say, "my wife is the financier of the
family and this was literally true, as
was demonstrated by the admirable
manner in which she managed affairs
when the general's salary in his father's
leather store at Galena was only $40 a
month. Brought up a refined lady and
accustomed to all the commoner luxur
ies of life, she found herself, on her ar
rival here from St. Louis, in circum
stances that would have terrified most
women reared under similar circum
stances. With a devotion which char
acterizes the true wife and mother, she
net herself to work, and soon had a

her family an earthly paradise. Her
managment when Ulysses entered the
army .penniless (being compelled even to
borrow the money with which to buy an

Peacock Throne of Delhi.
The finest and most costly piece of.
furniture ever conceived was the fa
mous "peacock throne" of Delhi,
Tavernier, a skillful French jeweler,
saw it, and made a computation as to its
intrinsic value. He calmly estimated
that its nominal worth, aside from its
claims in an artistic way, was $30,000,
000. It was but six feet high and four
feet broad, but it was composed of solid
gold inlaid with rare oriental gems. It
received its name from the jeweled im
ages of peacock which adored its canopy.
This canopy was also of gold, sup
ported on twelve gold pillars, and
hung all round with a fring of
pearls. On each side of the throne
stood two chuttalis or umbrellas, sym
bolical of royality. They were made
of crimson velvet, embroidered with
gold thread and pearls, and were
equipped with solid gold handles, and
diamonds. This throne was construct

services at this hospital and that in
hospitals controllen by Miss Dix was
that at Armory Square the pay of the
nurses went tnto a fund to provide
special diets for the patients. The
nurses signed the pay-roll, but never
saw the money, They knew all about
this regulation before going in, and
volunteered to give service without
compensation. Of course, Mrs. Hawley
could afford this, though there were

Samuel J. Tilden has written a letter to the
chairman of the Democratic State Committee
of New York, positively declining to run for
President. He closes as follows: At the pres
ent time the consideration which induced my
action in 1880 have become imperative. I
ought not to assume a task which I have not
the physical strength to carry through. I am
theiefore constrained to say definitely
that I cannot now assume the labora o"f
an administration or of a canvass
grateful beyond all words to my fellow coun
trymen who would assign such a beneficent
function to me, I am consoled by tho reflection
that neither the Democratic party nor the ro
publio for whose future that party is the best
guarantee, is now, or ever can be, dependent
upon any one man for their successful progress
in the path of a noble destiny. Having given to
their welfare whatever of health and strength
I possessed or could borrow from the future,
and having reached the term of my capacity for
such labors as their welfare now demands, I
but submit to the will of God in deeming my
publio career forever closed.

Toronto, Ont., Special:—Dr. Casse of Chica

months ago at Ottawa and Toronto in connec
tion with attempts
to blow up the house of parli
ament,early Wednesday morning shot and killed
William Hamilton in a houso of ill-fame at Or
illia, a little town 100 miles north of Toronto.
When the row in which he shot Hamilton oc
curred, he was writing up a jewelry robbery.
He went to Orillia to look for the robbers, and
while in a house of ill-fame met Hamilton,
who, it is said, knew more about Casse'a con
nection with the dynamite gang than was calcu
lated to please the latter. Hamilton threatened
to expose the doctor, and in an alteration was
shot dead. Casse was arrested and will likely
be found guilty of murder by the corner's jury.

Details of White Thunder's Murder.
White Thunder, the Sioux chief, was shot and
killed on the 1st inst., by two chiefs of the same
tribe, named Spotted Tail and Thunder Hawk.
White Thunder was a man of prominence
among the Rosebud Sioux, and aspired to the
place made vacant in the tribe two years ago by
the murder of old Spotted Tail by Crow Dog.
Young Spotted Tail also was aspirant for lus
father's place, and was jealous of White Thun
der, and it is supposed tliis feeling of rivalry
caused the murder. White Thunder's only
child a daughter of sixteen years, is a pupil in
the Carlisle school, and so are two of tho Young
Spotted Tail's brothers, one of whom a young
man nineteen years old, is 0 feet 4 inches high.
The other is a boy of thirteen. A seventeen

The Unknown Trials a Vtaaa S&dured
Without Complaint—Why they Van
Near the close of one of the most try
ing of the few hot dayB of the present
year a pale, care-worn woman might
have been seen at the window of her
dwelling apparently in a condition of
•complete exhaustion. Her efforts to
meet the accumulated duties of her
household have been great but unsuc
cessful, while the care of a sick child,
whose wails could even than be heard,
was added to her otherwise overwhelm
ing troubles,' Nature had done much
for her and in her youthful days she
had been not only beautiful but the
possessor of health such as is seldom
seen. But home and family duties
and the depressing cares which
too often accompany them had
proven greater than her splen
did strength and she felt at that
moment not only that life was a
burden but that death would be a great
relief. This is no unusal experience.
It is, in fact, a most common everyday
occurrence, and a great prayer is con
stantly ascending from the thousands
of homes for deliverance from the dead
ly power which is enslaving so many
wives mothers and daughters. And yet
these duties of life must be met. No
woman can afford to turn as de from the
proper care of her home and the ones
who are committed to her care, although
in doing these duties she may sacrifice
her health, and possibly life itself. The
experience of one who successfully
overcame such trials and yet retain
health and all the blessings it brings is
thus told by Rev. William Watson,
President Elder of the Methodist- Epis
copal church, residing at Watertown,
N. Y. He said:
"My wife became completely run down
through overwork and care of a sick
member of our household, and I enter
tained serious apprehensions as to her
future. She was languid, pale,'utterly
exhausted, without appetite, and in a
complete state of physical decline. And
yet she did not, could not neglect her
duties. I have seen her about the house,
trying courageously to care for the ones
she loved, when I could tell from the
lines upon her face how much she was
suffering. At times she would rally for
a day or two and then fall back into the
state of nervous exhaustion she felt be
fore. Her head pained her frequently,
her body was becoming bowed by pain
and all hope or enjoyment in life seemed
departed. What to do we could not tell.
I resolved, however, to bring back her
life and vitality if possible and to this
end began to treat her myself. To my
great relief her system has been toned
up, lier strength restored, her health
completely recovered and wholly by
the use of Warner's Tippecanoe, which
I regard as the greatest tonic, invigo
rator and stomach remedy that has ever
been discovered. I was led to use it the
more readily as I had tested the health
restoring properties of Warner's Safe
Cure in my own person and I therefore
knew that any remedy Mr. Warner
might produce woul be a valuable
one. I have since recommended both
Warner's Tippecanoe and Warner's
Safe Cure to many of my friends and I
know several Doctors of Divinity as well
as numerous laymen who are using both
with great benefit."
If all the overworked and duty diiven
women of America could know of the
experience above described, and act
upon the same, there can be little doubt
that much of the pain, and most of the
depressing influences of life might be
avoided. Such truths are too valuable
to remain unknown.
A COMFORTABLE FORTUNE.
One of the Memphis Men Who Became Sud
Stories of sudden or miraculous wealth have
always possessed a peculiar fascination for the
masses, and the man who has drawn a prize in
a lottery is regarded as the happiest of mortals.
At the last drawing of The Louisiana State Lot
tery two Memphis men drew $15,000 each. One
of these was Mr. B. J. Dorsey, who has been a
foreman of hands at work upon tho leveos along
the Mississippi. He has been living in humble
circumstances at 'lii Jackson street An Ava
lanche reporter yesterday had curiosity to see
the man who had drawn $15,000, so he repaired
to tho corncr of Main and Jackson streets and
inquired of Hoim children where Dorsey lived.
"You mean the man that drew the'lottery
prize?" asked one of them.
"Yes," replied the reporter.
"He's moved away. He used to live in that
little house over there, but he's going to live in
a tine house in Fort Pickering now."
The reporter greatly marveled and went to
the house pointed out to hini, and asked a man
there if Dorsey still lived there.
"No," was the reply. "You see he drew
art of tho big prize*- iu the Louisiana State
and he wants more stylish quarters.
He's got the money and I guess he's happy. I
wish I was in his place, that's all."
Mr. Dorsey is said to be a man in every way
deserving the good luck that has been thrust
upon him by chance.—Memphis (Tenn.) Ava
