Low in New York Commercial Ad- I rertiser. JOHN WENT BACK. Two fertile farms lay side by siHe on the road between the village of Fridge town (now Mount Hdlly) and Burlington in the year 1775. Eeuben Most and John Grigg were still wont to consult one another con cerning the affairs of their resp«ctive farms. So by tho same process Reuben Most and John Grigg found themselves when the necessity arose shouldering Conti nental muskets togother. It must not be snpposed,.forsooth, that Reuben and John 'were childlts-; and alone simply because no mention has yet been made of anything to the con trary. Patty Most was as fair an IS year-old slip of girl as one would care to feast his eyes upon. Reuben and John had uissry years ago, long before the birth of Patty, confided to one another the hop? that one should be given a son, to the other a daughter, and that the lifelong friendship of the fathers should find even a stronger tie in the union of their offspring. When, shortly after the girl was born, therefore, John's buxom spouse duly pre sented him with an heir, the two old friends renewed their pledges over many a giant mug of home brewed ale. At the period when the tale begins Patty Most was a demure little country beauty a trifle over 18 years of age, and John, Jr., was a sturdy youth a month younger. Up to this time there had been but small need for the manifestation of their fathers' desire concerning a mar riage between them. On the evening before the departure of the men young John walked down the cowpath, jumped the boundary fence be tween his father's and Reuben's' lands, and strode up through the meadows to his sweetheart's home. The parting with her was John's worst trial. Even this, however, was softened by his anticipation of tho glory which would cover him when the war was over aud done, and when tbe name of John Grigg, Jr., should stand high upon its list of heroes. "Oh, Joan, don't so to the horrid war!" exclaimed Tatty impulsively. "I'm just certain you'll get killed!" "Pshaw. Patty!"'said John as he put his arm around her, "don't be a little coward. Pll come liomo a great mau, and. then you'll be glad I went." The samo day Patty ami her mother accepted au invitation extended by the girl's aunt,<who lived in the village of Bridgetown, to tnako their home with her until the return of Reuben, tio. leav ing the farm affairs in charge of an old man, who was too far advanced in years to bo of service in battle, Mrs. Most and Patty went to live with Mrs. Milford in the village until the happy day when the war should end. Mrs. Milford's house stood on Main street, not far above Garden lane, npon the corner of which two streets stood the even then old Friends' meeting where the mistress, who was a member of the society, was wont to wor ship on First days. About four weeks subsequent lo tho two Johns and Reuben's departure a company bf British troops en route from the Atlantic snaco-sst to Boston invaded Bridgetown for some unknown reason and proceeded to quarter themselves upon tlio startled residents. Those of the troops who violated the privacy of Mrs. Milford's household were three young officers. That dame did well for her involuntary guests, si ting before them the best to eat and drink thiH her house afforded. Major D*rrond chose us the drill ground the main street of the village, that being greater in width than any other. Upon this street stood Mrs. Milford's h0,., directly in front of which the British company would be forced to pass. This Patty noted with secret satisfaction. Out marched the British column, pass ing and repassing with absolutely cor rect unanimity of motion. Twice, thrice, it passed the Milford mansion, and now it was about to do so for the fourth time. A minute more and the center of the long line was exactly opposite the house. Suddenly the shutters of a second story window flew open, and from out tin.' window was thru3t tin American flag. A bonny head appeared just behind it, and the accents of a shrill, girlish voice rang out: "Hurrah for the Americans!" The company stopped like 6 flash. "Arrest that woman!" thundered the major. A dozen soldiers ran to fulfill the order. The window was quickly thrown down, fastening the flagstaff down and holding it in position, where it continued to gen tly wave defiance to tho Tory throng low. MeanWTiile Patty had hoard the order for her arrest and ran like the wind down the rear stops, through the plat of ground at the rear of tho house and out into Garden lane. _ Across the way the door of the old meeting house stood invitingly ajar, the aged sexton having forgotten to close it after the day's garnishing. Intoit i';itty ran, but not quickly enough to I :p» observation by the soldiers. Ono of them caught a glimpse of her flying skirts a*, she entered the door, nnd gave the alarm. In a mor enttho tnlire command, forgetful for tin time ol all discipline, rushed headlong after her. Just as they had all reached the meet ing house ••elam!" sounded the solid door in their faces, and as they gath ered angrily around, baffled, they could hear the sound of the heavy iron bar as it dropped into place on tho inside. "Crash!" went the bullet through the pane, scut by some dastardly soldier's pistol. "Stop that!" shouted ono of the junior officers of the company. "The next man who shoots at that girl will be placed un der arrest!" On the inside Patty crouched in front of tho center pillar of the building breathless and a good deal frightened. The ballet whirred over her head aud buried itself in the wood about a foot above her. In a moment one or two of the men outside, assisted by their comrades, had climbed to the window sill and had suc ceeded in raising the window about six inches. By degrees they widened the distance sufficiently to allow a soldier's body admission to the room. He clam bered over the sill and dropped down on the inside. "Ah, my pretty one," said the soldier to Patty, who waa now thoroughly frightened, "so we've got you at last, have Are!" Major looked grimly down from his high seat upon his horse as Pat ty was led, trembling and timorous, be fore him. "Take this girl to my quarters and keep guard over her." The colonel's quarters, which had been made ia a stanch stone mansion in an other part of the village, were reached soon, aad Patty was forthwith taken to a room on tho second iloor and locked in, while a soldier stood guard without the door and another in the street just under tiie one window. Two hours dragged their slow length away before Tatty heard anything more from the soldiers. Then she saw them .coming toward the house in groups of twos and threes. Shortly, too. the major rode up. and throwing his horse's reins tv tt .servant dismounted and entered the :'atty saw one of her three friends—t~,e lieu tenant—accompanying him. After perhaps 15 more minutes had passed the same soldier who had locked the girl in came and unlocked the door, beckoning for Patty to come with him. The soldier took her along the passage way aud dovrtl to the lower floor before Major Derrond again. That officer seemed a trifle less stern, she thought, than when she was at first taken before him. "I have decided," said the major, "to release you on condition that you do not repeat the offense to his majesty that was tiie cause of your being here. Are you willing to give that assurance?" Patty hesitated a moment, and finally deciding that by promising she need in nowise be untrue to her father's and lover's cause, gave the required promise. Upon a night soon after a heavy rain had begun to fall about dusk and had continued drearily the night long. Short ly after 9 o'clock tha little village was locked in slumber. Patty had retired soon after 9 and had fallen immediately asleep. Nothing disturbed her dreams until just after midnight, when a shower of gravel rat tled sharply against her chamber win dow. The girl was awakened almost instant ly. and lumped from her bed to investi gate the cause of the strange proceeding. "It's me, Patty," came a low voice from below, which she immediately rec ognized as that of John, Jr., her lover, who was supposed to be far away to the wars. Hastily she threw on her clothes, and in a moment had unfastened the heavy kitchen door and had admitted the sol dier youth, drenched and bedraggled, to the welcome warmth of the open lire, which, although the season was summer, gave out a generous heat to the chilled and dripping youth. "Now," said Patty as John removed his coat and stood before the fire, "tell me how you came to come home?" John made no answer for several min utes. Then he said: "I suppose that I might as well tell you, Patty, that I've deserted." The girl failed to comprehend for a Mini.ii-nt and sat with wide, wondering "You don't mean, John," she finally said Jowly, "thai you've run away from ■• STou yourself that you wouldn't j blame any man lor being afraid," he said : feebly. "Yes," answered Patty, "but I've changed since then, I'm not a coward any longer. Tho tables seem to be turned now," she added significantly, and John flushed uneasily. And then the girl re counted the story of her adventure with the British soldiers. At this the weeping soldier lad dried his eyes and sat up a little straighter. "You must have walked a good way," Patty said after a time, a little more kindly. "Where did yon leave the army?" "Not very far from here," answered John. "Onr general heard the British wore fixing up a headquarters down hero somewhere and sent a company down to ! see. They're in camp now about seven miles to tho north. None of the men saw A moment later and a glorious possi bility had flashed across the girl's mind. I She unfolded it rapidly to John, and that youth, timorous end faint hearted though | ho was, succeeded in mustering a sn>:tU degree of enthusiasm concerning it. He i finally agreed lo do his part, and was | let out of the house, as he had come, by ; Patty. Aa the tall clock in tho hall struck 1 j Patty crept back in bed again and lay I shivering nervously, with sleepfar from i her eyelids. Her thoughts were with ( John as lie .trod the drenched road ni>• :: j the mission on which site had sent him. I Would he prove equal to It. OT wocld ho bo found wanting as before? She heard the clock strike 2, then 3. She waited a long time, listening for it to strike -1, when again a shower of gravel rattled against the window panes. MS ANGELES HERA!LD : TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 31, 1893. Her heart beat wildly as she hurried to the wiudow. The same figure, looking more drenched if possible, she saw dimly below. "All right," she whispered, and in an other minute was talking eagerly with Johu In the kitchen, i. He was quite a different youth from j the one she had admitted but a few ; hours before, and who had confessed to ' such pitiable cowardice. All trace of tho despondent cringo with which he had stood, so full of shame, before Patty had disappeared. : and he seemed now like a mau who could be trusted in any crisis. "Everything is all right," he eaid. And then he secured from her tha names of the villagers upon whom tho Tory soldiers had quartered themselves. With the British company's protracted stay iv the village, the girl knew almost to a man whose tha different houses were which sheltered part of the king's army. After this information was secured John again disappeared, and Patty, for the third time that night, sought her couch, but not to sleep, however. Meanwhile the Continental company, which had been brought by John from their nearby camp, rapidly aad noise lessly surrounded each dwelling where a prize was to be secured in the shape of a British soldier. When the work was complete, tho trumpeter si oocl in the cen ter of tiie village and blew a stentorian blast. For a moment there was no sound in reply. Then windows were thrown open, aud at every one appeared one or more heads, the owners thereof rubbing their eyes und sleepily trying to discover the cause of snch unseemly disturbance of their peaceful slumbers. The British soldiers, too, stumbled out of their comfortable bods, surprised and uncomprehending. When they looked into the street, however, aud saw at every door tho Continental bluo and yel low, they rapidly arrived at a correct conclusion. Ere long every red coated soldier in Bridgetown was in the custody of the Continentals, who promptly conveyed them as soon as possible to tho New England headquarters, where honors were showered thickly upon the heads of the entire company. John went with them aud received his full share as the supposed author of the capture. What the commanding officers always supposed was merely a hare brained midnight visit to his sweetheart was pardoned in the light of its unex pected and happy result. John served all through the long war after that with bravery and distinction, his part in the snaring of the British sol diers apparently having.cured him of tho slightest suspicion ot cowardice.

The Power of Little Things. Daintiness in trifles is very attractive. A gift that is wrapped in good paper and tied with a pretty ribbon, for instance, looks twico as tempting as the same present carelessly given. Every ono knows how a table maj- be made refined or otherwise by the mere setting of the china, glass ant? cutlery and how the touch of the mistress' hand will convert the clumsy disposition of an inexperi enced servant into an arrangement of beauty and order. The same room with the same furniture may iook as widely different as the desert of Sahara and the garden of Eden, according to the taste shown by its occupant. This power of little things cannot be overestimated, and it is not only in tilings inanimate, but in words and deeds, that this most desirable quality of taste may be manifested. A kind action may be made graceful, a generous gift may be bestowed tr.ctfully, hy force of what might be dserned a trifle, but which sometimes is of the greatest importance. On the other hand, a careless, neglectful manner will almost rob a kindness of the pleasure it was intended to bestow and render it absolutely distasteful to the recipient.—New York Tribune. Shattered Romance. "Just one," said the lover as he stood upon the stoop with his girl, "just one." "Just 1," said the mother, putting her head out of the bedroom wiudow above.

"In vie w of the commercial relations of Canada with China, it is not expedient to change the provisions of tho Chinese immigration act nor to take any action that migjit be considered by the Chinese government as an invasion of tho spirit of treaty obligations or as an unfriendly act.

"I don't remember the text, but the sermon remains in my mind." "And pray what, then, was the substance of the sermon':" "Well, I can scarcely word it properly, but it amounted to this —that 'theology is not religion by a Bight!'"—Chi cago Tribune.
