Mi JL on 0 * Q POLLYS MASQUERADE By BELLE MANIATES Copyright, 1000, by Bwitrlz Ileftda "Hlllman! Hlllman!" lustily called tile brakernun, thrusting open the car door as the train slackened. Two of the passenger* were roused from 1 state of passivity by tbls an nouncement and, gathering their be longings, hastened out Into the cold night. On* was a young girl with a city bred air and the other, a. man distinguished In appear ance. They both looked bewtlderlngly about them as the train slowly pulled out "This doesn't look like my recollec tions of HUlman," said the «lrl, looking about the small, deserted station. "It Isn't Hlllman I" said the man de cidedly. "What station is this?" he asked as a railroad employee came out of the depot. "This? Tbls Is Rollins. Hlllman la six milts beyant—next stop, except JJie siding." The two passengers looked at each other tn mutual dismay. The girt spoke "NANA KBI now QAR I TTLL you—sea iwßMiar ' first. She spoke one word, nud that a 1 man's word. The railroad employee ' looked shocked, but the other man ap peared relieved. "Thank you very much," he said. ' "Ton voice my sentiments exactly. Our common misfortune should allow , us to waive all ceremony and conven tionality. My name Is John Winters. , I have recently taken up my abode In Hlllman." ' "Mine Is Polly I-ester," she said j ' frankly, "and I am only going to Hill man to visit. 1 trust I will never take : np my abode there." "It Isn't an enticing *pot," he ad mitted, langhlng. "When can we get ' a train to Hlllman?" he asked of the railroad employee. J "Not tin tomorrow morning." 1 "Then we mnat drive there. I pro -1 some there Is no livery hera, but there must be some one who will drive us over." ' "I guess Hank Innls, the barkeep, would take you over In his automobile. » I'll see." He returned shortly with the bar n keep and a runabout John Winters made a burgaln with him for the trip, and as Polly climbed to the seat beside him he sirld: ' '1 have some good nows for you. it 9 seems our train meets the western ex > press three miles from here, and that s train Is reported late, so we can over , ' take our train and continue our way as we started." Polly quite enjoyed this little adven ture. She always did have a weakness and a tendency for adventures. She . ' chatted freely with her new acqualnt s ance. She was almost sorry when they . 1 overtook and boarded the sidetracked 1 train, receiving apologies from the brake lUUIL and grins frcya the uaasen an He length, loose fitting.

Polly and" John Winters contin ued their chatter until they approached Hillmnn. Then she suld abruptly: "Hlllman Is u small place, and people have narrow views regarding proprie ties. It would be as well If we got off elngrly and separately and meeting, as we doubtless will, as strangers." "Certainly. You are right," agreed Winters, going forward to the smoking car. Polly was met and wblsked away to the one hack by u spinster aunt. "Has Hlllman changed much—auy new people moved In since I was last here. Aunt Cornelia?" asked Polly de murely as they were unpacking her lugkagc. "Oh, yes. HUlinan Is growing fast Lots of people, and we've got a new minister, n city fellow." "What's bis name?" demanded Polly, looking up Interestedly. "The Rev. Mr. Winters." "Oh!" gasped Polly feebly, bending over a refractory box cover. "What doos he look like?" "I am ashamed to Bay I haven't seen him," replied her nuut "First Sunday he was here I had a cold. The next Sunday It just poured. He has called, but 1 was not at home." "Well, I presume he will call ngaln," remarked Polly. Later, when she was alone and re posing comfortably In the billow/ feather bed, she laughed wickedly and delightedly. "Oh, what would Aunt Cornelia do If she knew I swore right before the new minister! She'd leave town, I do believe. I thought I liked him very well, but I don't know. I like a minis ter to live up to his calling, and he should not have been amused. It was frivolous In him to know so much about the world. If he weren't a min ister I know I'd like htm, but as he Is a minister I'd like him to be different" The next afternoon her aunt an nounced that she had to attend a club —... whlnk. aha rearetted to •ay, outsiders were excluded. Polly appeared resigned, however, and after her aunt's departure she wandered about the house seektng diversion. Bhe found It In her aunt's bedroom In the shape of B wig, for her aunt had to re sort to a false headgear, having lost her hair through Illness. Polly promptly donned It and sur veyed herself. "I don't look unlike aunt," she thought, "only I ara young and plump. We look like the advertisements for 'before and after taking.'" In parsunnce of the resemblance she tried on a black sllkon gown of her Hunt's. Shu had Just pinned an a long. a huge cameo pin when she looked out of the window and saw"" her fellow traveler coming up the steps. "Coming for a ministerial call. He won't recognise me In this outfit, and he has never seen aunt I shall per sonate her!" She hastened to admit the caller. "How do you do—Mr. Winters, Is It not? I am Miss Cornelia Laflln. Be •eated, please. I thought I was never going to meet my pastor. I was so sorry I was out when you called be fore." He politely regretted the fact also and proceeded tf> talk of the church [ matters. j "Hypocrite!" thought Polly. "I'll test him further." j "Mr. Winters, I don't suppose I ought j to tell you my troubles on our first meeting, but I feel I must unburden my mind and ask your advice." "Certainly, my dear Miss Laflln. Ton may command and trust me." "I have a niece visiting me—a well meaning girl, but brought up in a worldly way, and, Mr. Winters, will you believe me, she actually at times —dear me, how sen I tell yon—she #wearsl" "No, Miss Laflln! You amaze me! It cannot be possible!" "Horrkl hypocrite!" thought Polly again. Hearing voices on the porch, she look ed out and beheld ber aunt entering In oampany with a man. Dismayed, she snatched the wig from her head re gardless of tho effect upou the min ister. Rlie bad Just concealed It when her aunt and companion entered. "I made a mistake In tho date, Polly. This Is onr pastor, Mr. Winters. My niece. Miss Lester, Mr. Winters. I met Mr. Winters on bis way here." "Well, John, what are you doing here?" asked tho minister after ac knowledging the Introduction to Polly.

Tlie Critic on the Il««rtk. It may be argued from a story In Lord ICdmoud Fltzmaurlce's "Life" of the second Earl Granville that a wife with a seeing eye can size up her hus band quite as accurately as an astute politician. When Sydney Herbert, the first Lord Herbert of Lea, resigned the war office lu 1801, Paliuereton, then premier, fixed upon the scholarly Sir George Cornewall Lewis to succeed him. Lady Theresa Lewis immediately ex pressed her doubt of her husband's fit ness for the office, but Palmerston's messenger argued the point, saying the duties would not be military, but civil. "He wouKl have to look after the accounts." "He can never make up his own!" declared Lady Theresa. "He will look after the commissa riat," continued Palmerston's mouth piece, with assurance. "He cannot order his own dinner I" "He will control the clothing depart* ment," with timid hopeiulneau. "If my daughters did not give the orders to his tailor he would be with out a coat!" Palinersten carried the day, however, and Cornewall Lewis reluctantly ac cepted the office. Not long after the undersecretary found him In a club, trying presumably to Inform himself upon his duties. He was read\ng a work on the military tactics of Ljcao nlans. The Melon Didn't Count. ITie memoirs of Geueral Marbot upon the first French empire relate that on the occasion of a very formal distribu tion of rewards made by Napoleon be fore Ratlsbon an old grenadier came forward and demanded somewhat sharply, to the astonishment of all, a cross of the Legion of Honor. "But what have you done*" said Na poleon. "Why, sire," said the soldier, 4 it was I who, in the desert of Yafa, when It was terribly hot and you were parched with thirst, brought you a watermel on." "Thank you," said Napoleon, "but a watermelon for a general Is not worth a cross of the Legion of Honor." The grenadier flow Into a violent rage. "Well, then," he nhonted, "I sup pose that the seven wounds that I got at Areola and at Lodi and at Austerlitz and at Frledland go for nothing, eh? My eleven campaigns In Italy, in Egypt, In Austria, in Prussia and In Poland you don't count, I suppose?" I "Tut, tut, tut!" exclaimod the cmper ' or. "How you do get excited when you : come to the essential point of the whole • matter! I make you now a chevalier of the Legion of Honor for your wounds and your enmpaigns, but don't tell me anj more about your watermelon 1" Bin Promotion. A somewhat turbulent private wrote to his mother: "I am sorry you had no letter last week, but I,am a defaulter, and it gives me a heap of extra work." The gooa woman in reply begged him not to be too hard on the others, but to remember he had been a private him self. I regret to say that he roared with laughter and read the letter aloud for the benefit of all who shared his room.— Miss M. Loane, a Queen's Nurse, lu Contemporary Review.

Y, BARNUM'S 0LI) PLACE THE HISTORIC MUSEUM THAT STOOD IN LOWER NEW YORK. Facta About the Famoni Carlo flail That Drought a Fortune to the En ergetic Showman—Forty Thonnund IVrhoaa Knw It Couttunied by Fire. "We will ascend to the top of St Paul's skyscraper and take New York *lty in at a glance," said my friend as we passed the corner of Broadway and Ann street. Entering the doorway and taking the elevator It took but a few moments to find ourselves at the top where from the windows we not only "took In"the entire city, with Its brick jvalls and smoking chimneys, but as far as the eye could reach we saw | water and green Holds. As we de scended we could not help thinking that on this spot for many years stood Bar uum's museum, once the dream of all children and a place of universal In terest to every one. Among the many sights and curiosi ties seen in the museum some are fa miliar to this day, as Niagara Falls, with real water, trees, rocks, etc.; Jolce Ucth, the aged colored woman, 101 years old, who had once been nurse to General Washington; the woolly horse, said to have been captured by the Fre. Mont exploring party In the Rocky mountains; the Indian Wadding dance; the club that killed Captain Cook; Tom Thumb, the dwarf who drove around the city In a stylish little coach and who married Miss Lavinia War ren, the wedding taking place before a vast assemblage at Grace church while multitudes lined the sidewalks outside; the living whale that was kept In a tank of salt water pumped In from the bay; the hippopotamus, the tropical fish, Commodore Nutt, known as the $30,000 Nutt; the two dromlos; the lightning calculator who could add a square of figures at a glance, and whs became a Methodist minister; the fat boy; Anna Swan, the Nova Scotia giantess; the tallest man In the world; the fat woman; Pashasharend, "the what Is It," no one knowing whether It was a man or a monkey; the boa con strictor, seen Inside a large glass case; the cherry colored cat; the happy fam ily, a collection of cats, rats, adders, rabbits, parrots, birds, etc., all In one cage; also two vast alligators, the liv ing skeleton, the baby mite that weighed only three pounds, the fish with legs, the FIJI mermaid, the giraffe, the rhinoceros, with the tropi cal birds, parrots, cockatoos, mocking birds, humming birds, vultures and eagle, and the well remembered dog and baby shows. Then there were the wax figures of pirates and murderers, Franklin Pierce, Patrick Henry, General Wash lugtou, James Buchanan, General Mar lon, General Lafayette, James Madi son, Governor Morris, Pilnce Imperial of France, Mme. Roland, Moll Pitcher, Nathan Ilale, Poor Richard, Daniel Lambert, the Veiled Murderess, etc. In many of the plays thrilling scenes were produced, as in"The Storm at Sea," where a vessel was struck by lightning and the crew rescued by be ing drawn by a rope up a rocky sum mit and the army ascending through the narrow defiles of the Swiss Alps. The museum was burned on the aft ernoon of July 13, 1865. The fire, it was thought, originated In the engine room, it being necessary to keep up steam to pump fresh air into the wa ter of the aquaria and to propel the fans that kept the heated halls cool. The flames began In the manager's office and extended to all parts of the building. The manager showed great presence of mind by depositing several thousand* of dollars In a safe before he escaped from the building. Fully 40,000 persons witnessed the fire, who saw the tall woman lowered by means of ropes to the sidewalk and heard the shrieks of animals In the menagerie and tlie growls of the Bengal tiger. The lion and his mate, who had es caped from their cage, were seen walk ing along the fioor and an encounter beneath the roof between the eagle and a serpent, when the victorious ea gle bore off his enemy In his talons amid loud cheers. The polar bear, escaping from the building, walked through the street* to the custom house, where, ascending to the bal cony, he fell and broke his neck. Oth er animals, jumping from the win dows, caused the crowd to stampede, when some lost their hats, others had their coats torn, and many became awfully disfigured by falling In the mud. The remains of the two whales, the kangaroo and crocodile were found in the ruins. Tl.e loss of no other building In the city could have caused so much excitement and regret as Bar num's museum.—Brooklyu Citizen. CAPTAIN KIDD. The Career and the Gndlnff of FamouM Pirate. Captain Kldd, the famous pirate, started his career with the Intention of suppressing piracy. In February, 169T, ho left the Hudson in the Adventure Galley with a crew of 150 men with this intention. This expedition had been equipped chiefly at tlie expense of the Whig ministers, and its commander carried with him, "besides the ordinary letters of marque, a commission under the great seal empowering him to seize pirates and to take them to some place where they might be dealt with ac cording to law." The king's right to the goods found In possession of these malefactors was granted by letters patent to the sup porters of the expedition, his majesty securing only one-tenth of the spoil. Kldd, however, soon finding that little was to be gained by the adventure, threw off all disguise and hoisted the Jolly Roger. Ills rapacity and cruelty were un bounded, and In less than two years ho amassed the sum of £200,000. With this he thought to make his peace with the authorities and end his days In lux ury, but he was arrested at New York and brought to England, where he was tried and hanged at Execution dock in 1701.—London Saturday Revlow. Too Rich a Haul. When General Trepoff was chief of police In Moscow, before the estab lishment of the state liquor monopoly, he was told from the highest quarter* to suppress the orgies at popular re sorts In the town.
