"I will not threaten you.Hilton Tears ago I made my will, and you will be my heir. I shall cot alter one line of that document, because I will not bribe you to do my will, or even to be an honora ble man You may mar-y whom you will, may defy my wishes in every way, and lose my love and respect, but the money will still be yours." The quick, indignant flush npon Hil ton Graham's face, the sudden erectness of his figure, told that bis uncle had well calculated the effect of bis words Truly. with his frank, brown eyes, bis sensitive moulb, his broad white brow, he looktd little like a man to be bribed ; but it was as easy to read that be could be ruled by bis affections While be spoke, his voi"e was low, and his tone pleading. "Do yon mean, Uocle George, that I shall lose your love and respect if I marry Ada Willet?".. V "Or any other, woman who is abso lutely nobody... What- do you know of her?" ' . ''Only that she is the loveliest, noblest woman I ever saw.' "Yes, yes; but I mean what do you know of. her family ?" . , "Only what she told me herself, that her mother died of poverty, after strug gling -to support herself by her needle. They were miserably poor for a long time, and then Mrs. Willet began to give work to Ada's mother When she died, Mr 8. Willet took Ada to her own home; and after giving her every advantage her own child could have enjoyed, adopted her.",,; - . - . i"What was her own name?" ... - 'Smith." , : M. "Baft I" said Mr. . Hilton, with every expression of deep disgust. f'Well, marry her if ou will. Your present al lowance shall be doubled, but you, need not bring her here ;" and with a sudden fierceness be added, "I want no woman here to remind me of a past I hope 1 1 had forgotten." ' Never in all his recollection of the grave, quiet uncle had Hilton seen him so moved. His voice ; was sharp with tbe pang of some sudden memory, bis eyes flashed, and bis whole frame trem bled with emotion.' , "You are a man now," he said with one of those strange impulses to confi dence that often seize the most reserved men, "a man seeking a wife. ; I. will tell you what has never before passed my lips to an human being I have a wife some where, and a child it may be., Utter astonishment kept Hilton silent. "It is all my own fault," Mr. Hilton condoned, "that l am a lonely, misera ble man, instead of a happy husband and father: Twenty years ago, when I was past forty years old, I fell in love. Fell in love.for I was fairly insane over Myra Delano when 1 had seen ber three times. I courted her with eager attention, rich presents, flattery, every fascination I could command I was not an unattrac tive man at forty.- I bad traveled exten sively, beea a close student, was emphat ically a society man, a successful lawyer, commanding great - wealth. Myra was 25, superbly handsome, accomplished and graceful. "I thought she loved me, 1 thought there was only trust and devotion in the love-light of ber large eyes, tbe varying color npon her - cheek. We were mar ried, traveled two years in Europe, and then returned bere to this bouse, and opened its doors to society. Our child, was nearly a year old when we Came home, and what love I could spare from Myra. I gave to babv Anne. We were very popular, being hospitable and generous, gathering around us refined people, and both exerting ourselves to our utmost for. the pleasure of our guests. But when we were traveling, all in all to each other, there was sleeping in my heart a demon which stirred to life when we retrjrned : Strong as mv love I found my jealousy. I was a fool, a mad, jealous fool for I stung a proud. sensitive woman to contempt or my opinion, defiance of my unworthy sus picions Now I can see that Myra was but filling ber proper place in society as hostess or guest; but then, blinded by my jealousy, I grudged any other man a pleasant look or cheery word I cannot tell ' you now of every scene that turned her love for me to fear and dislike. She became pale and miserable, often sullen and defiant. Finally she left me J" i. "Left you!" "I came here one afternoon, after con ducting an intricate criminal case, and found a note on my tible telling me My ra could no longer.etand the life of con stant quarreling and reproach. She had Uken her child and would never return to me " "Did she not go to relatives?" "She bed but few. Her father died while we were abroad, and having been considered a rich man. was found to have left less than his funeral expenses. She had an aunt and some cousins, to all of whom I went but who denied all knowledge of her After searching with the eagerness of penitence deep and sin cere and love most profound, I finally advertised, and even employed private oolice investigation. It was all in vain. I never found wife or child " "Yet you think they live?" "I cannot tell. I remained here for five years, and then, as you know, went ts see my only sister, dying of consamp tion." - - v ' ? . "jiuu mj ucoume my secona tamer.. "Yes, my boy. 1 found you, my little namesake a sobbing boy or 12, heart broken over your mother's illness and death. - You know the rest of my histo ry. I retired from the pursuit of my profession, traveled with yoa, made you my; one interest in life. You filled my empty house and heart, for I loved you, Hilton, as dearly as I loved mv baby daughter, whose childhood, is a closed, sealed book to me." "But, Uncle George can nothing be done now?" "We have been here three years, and every month there has been an adver tisement only Myra could understand in the leading papers I have never had one line nf answer. No, my boy, it is hopeless . now! If in the future you should know of my wife or child, I trust her to your care and generosity." It seemed as if, in the excitement. of his recital, Mr Hilton had torgotten tbe conversation that had immediately sug gested it Ha rose from bis seat, and opening a cabinet in the room, brought back a small box. It contained a brace let of hair with an inexpensive clasp and a locket. "When W were in Paris," he said, "I had this bracelet made of Myra's bair' and mine woven together; she has the companion one. - This tiny coil of gold in the clasp was cut from the baby's head, our little darling, then but tbree months old. It must have been some lingering love that made Myra si ill keep the bracelet like this, which she wore constantly ? Wnat is the matter, Hil ton ? You are as white as death " "Nothing Is your wife's picture in the locket?" "Y. s You see how beautiful she waa." .,- -: "I see more than that!" said Hilton; "and yet I dare not tell you what I see Will you give me one little hour Co see if " "If what?" "Only one hour I will be back then !' . "Sit-p!" Mr. Hilton cried,, shaking with -excitement: but. his neohew was gone: Hoping, fearing, not ' knb wingf00!' texTJtarherJj'to'OterTtTiP wnat to nope or rear, Mr Hilton watch ed the clock till the boor should be over. He walked up and down, he tried to read, be lived over and again that past, whose remorseful memories bad been so vividly recalled. With Myra's picture before him, he thought again of the wild, fierce love that had been his curse. "Why . was I not calm, reasonable, as became my years and position ?" he ask ed himself, bitterly. "Why did I give a boy'b love to a woman who bad lived in society,., and respected all its require ments?, I lived an idle life Myra tbe actual one around us Where is Hilton ? What can he know? What baa be dis covered ? Oaly thirty minutes gone.and it seems a day since be was here!" . But. even , before the hour was over Hilton returned. , In bia . eagerness to question him, Mr. Hilton did not notice that be came through the drawing room to the library where he waited, leaving the door a little open. VWbere ,have you been ?". Mr. Hilton asked. ... . , '...-. 'To procure this," Hilton answered gravely,: placing in bis hands the dupli cate of the bracelet upon the table. ihe same braid or sunny brown bair, with v here and there some of the raven black streaked with gray ; the same small clasp with a wee coil of baby hair under tbe glass; the same letteriuz, too My ra and George twined together with fan tastic scrolls and twists For several moments there was deep silence. The old man. could not, and the vounz roan would; , not break in upon what he felt to be a sacred emotion. At last lifting his head, George Hilton asked : "Does ' Myra live ? Can she forgive me?'' t "It is years since she died," Hilton answered, "but surely in heaven she hss forgiven you ! She never spoke of you to your child but iu words of respect and affection,, though she always spoke of you as dead." "My child ! You know my child ?" "I know and love her. Do you not guess. Uncle George, where 1 saw that bracelet whose duplicate I recognized at once, whose face is a living copy of the one in .your locket r Must I tell you that the child Mis Willett rescued from poverty, and adopted for ber own, is my cousin and your daughter?" ' - "Ada Smith?" "Smith was tbe name her mother thought would most probably conceal ber identitv, and Ada was the name ot Mrs. Willetl's only child, who died in infancy " ' : , . - - "But ' whv have you not brought her to me?" asked Mr Hilton, with aim st a sob in bis voice., And as he spoke the door which Hilton had left ajar opened, and across tbe threshold stepped a tall, beautiful girl, ' with sunny brown hair, and large blue eyes, who waited timidly until her, father . came quickly to meet her ' ' " : ' - "Anna !" be said softly. "Can this be my babv mv wee daughter? It must bo, for it is my Myra wbo has not grown old and grav, as I have, hut lives in per petual youth. My child, I wronged your mother, but I have sorrowed and repent ed for the wrong Can yon forgive me?" .Tbe tears were falling fat from Anna Hilton a eyes, and her voice was trem bling with sobs as she said, "My dear father!" . "That was all ; but as George Hilton folded his child in bis arms, he knew that be was forgiven, and for. him at least there might be happiness in making oili era happy. Good Mrs Willet mourned and re j need at once over ber own loss and her adopted daughter's good fortune, but consoled herself with the thought that Ada must have left her to be Hilton's wife, and, after all, they would still be neighbors. But she would not give her up until after a most brilliant wedding.and George Hilton only welcomed his daughter to her home when he also gave tender greeting to Hilton's wife. .. . Intimidation In Massachusetts. ' . Andover, Mass., Dec. 14. To the Editor of tbe World: Sir: Inclosed is a ballot, such as was sent from Boston to every city and town in the commonwealth at the late election The other, ballots wete as usual upon jo jrro ws atripa of ; white. ppeUijw.M impossible to conceal how the man vo ted. You will see the copyright ia se cured. Probably an "injunction was all ready for service if by any accident the form had been discovered and imitated But these ballots were not seen until the morning of the day for their use. Adin Thayer, Chairman of the State Committee, under whose order the ballot wa devised, has been since rewarded by receiving tbe appointment of Judge of Probate. Of course the instrument of intimida tion is suited to the person to be intimi dated. Such a . ballot was as effectual here as a pistol would be in some other places." ,What was the purpose of such au engine ? What was the end propos ed ? Why W8s the expense incurred and the whole thing done ? Yours respect fully, , , H. The specimen "ballot" which our cor respondent incloses is a sheet of rather stiff printing paper, measuring fourteen by seven inches. It is headed "Regular Republican Ticket," and decorated with two-portraits, one of a person ot benev olent and elderly appearance, whom we take to be meant for Mr Talbot, and one of a person neither so benevolent nor so elderly in appearance, whom we imagine to. be Mr. Long After these vignettes comes the list of thirteen can didates Tbe ticket folded makes a pack et rather larger and heavier than an or dinary detter; and could not possibly be mistaken for an ordinary ballot, so that secrecy in voting it is quite out of the question Moreover, the mostelaborate precautions are taken against any imita tions of it It is printed in lour colors, b ack, yellow and two shades of red, by a process which is entirely beyond the resources of an ordinary printing office Any employer wishing tknow bow his workmen voted could not have been left in any doubt when this ballot was used, together with ordinary vigilance on the part of the ' watchers, since it was quite out of the question that another should be substituted for it without the knowl edge ojf the bystandeis. , :'Mr'Blaine made his resolution broad idation in the North as well as in the South.
