of the LADY ARABELLA SYNOPSIS. At 14 years of hrp Admiral Sir Peter Ilawknhaw's nephew. Jilt-hard Glyn, fell deeply in love at ilrst sight with Lady Arabella Stormont, who spurned ids at tentions. The lad, an orpliun. was given a berth ns midshipman on the Ajax by Ills untie. Giles Vernon, nephew of Sir Thoihas Vernon, became the boy's pal. They attended a theater where Hawk show's nephew saw Lady Arabella. Ver non met Philip Overton, next in line for Sir Thomas Vernon's estate. They start ed a duel widt h was interrupted. Vernon Overton and Hawkshaw’s nephew found themselves attracted by pretty Lady Ara bella. The Ajax in battle defeated French warships In the Mediterranean. Richard Glyn got £2.000 prize money. He was trailed home by Lady Hawkshaw as lie was about to "blow In” his earnings with Vernon. At a Hawkshaw party Glyn dis covered that Lady Arabella was a poor but persistent gambler. He talked much with her cousin Daphne. I.ady Arabella again showed love for gaming. Later she field Glyn and Overton prisoners, thus delaying the duel. In the Overton-Ver non duel, neither was hurt. Lady Ara bella humiliated Richard by her pranks. Richard and Giles shipped on a frigate. Giles was captured by the French. Sir Peter arranged for his exchange. Daph ne showed a liking for Glyn. who was then 21 years of age. Giles was released. Giles and Richard planned elopements. Sir Peter objected to the plan to wed Daphne. By clever ruses Giles and Rich ard eloped with Lady Arabella and Daphne, respectively. The latter pair were married. Daphne was pleused; Ara bella raved In anger. When the par ty returned. Arabella asked 8lr Peter to aid In prosecuting Giles in court on the charge of committing a capital crime. All attended the trial. Upon Arabella's testimony Giles was convicted and sen tenced to be hanged. Sir Peter visited the prince of Wales in effort to secure n pardon for Giles. Arabella threw herself at the feet of Overton, whom she hail loved for many years. He spurned her. Then she told her plot to have Giles exe cuted so the Vernon estate would devolve upon Overton, whom she had planned to marry. Her ufTuirs being disarranged, she announced that she would probably marry Sir Thomas Vernon himself. Par don from the king was secured with 24 hours' leeway In which to save Giles. After great difficulties were overcome. Sir Peter and Richard reached the prison at *.he moment Giles was to be executed. CHAPTER XI.—Continued. Already there were great crowds in the street, and as I made my way mad ly toward the Jail, I was often im peded. I shrieked, I screamed at the people, and waved aloft my precious paper, shouting: “Pardon! Pardon!” The cry was taken up, and swelled in a great roar that came from a thou sand friendly throats. As I galloped along on the tinker's horse, through the crowded streets, an awful unspeak able Thing loomed up before me. It was the gibbet, and it was empty! I felt the hot tears run down my cheeks at this and some recollection of the God that Overton had preached to me caused me to utter an inarticulate thanksgiving! nut if my tongue fal tered, my heart did not. At last I pushed my way through shouting crowds to the Jail. The peo ple parted, and 1 saw a black cart drawn by a white horse, and Giles Ver non. with pinioned hands, sitting in it, by the side of the hangman. I noticed —as I did all the trifles of that dread ful time—that the Jailer was ashy pale and Giles was fresh-colored. I flung myself off my horse, rushed toward the cart, holding the paper above my head. Oh, the roaring and the shout ing! I thrust it In Giles' face; the hangman, in a second, cut the thongs that bound the prisoner's hands. Giles took the pardon and kissed it. and then threw bis arms around me and kissed mo. and smiled and waved his hat in the air, while voices thundered, men shouting like demons, and women screaming and weeping. And the next thing I knew Daphne appeared, as if dropped down from heaven, and, springing Into the cart, clasped Giles; and Lady Hawkshaw, a little slower, but yet quick, descended from the coach, in which she ami Daphne had come, and embraced all of us; and then the cheering seemed to rend the skies. In a little while, the mood of the crowd changed. They began to clamor for the blood of Sir Thomas Vernon. He was known to be away from home, but. as if by a preconcerted movement, a dash was made for Vernon court, which was but five miles away. The military were called out. and the crowd stopped; but not without a collision, and several persons were badly in jured, which did not tend toward bet ter feeling for Sir Thomas. For ourselves, I remained with Giles until he was duly released by the of ficers of the law, while Daphne and Lady Hawkshaw set off to meet Sir Peter on the road. They met him, five miles off, and brought him back to York in their coach. I shall never for get the scene when they drove up to the inn where Giles and I were al ready, the crowd, however, not allow ing him to remain Indoors at all. When the coach hove to, the people, In their delight, picked Sir Peter up and car ried him bodily upstairs to an open balcony and demanded a speech, fol lowed by ‘‘Parliament! Parliament! Our next member!" and so on. Sir Peter made a speech—the most won derful I ever heard —standing with one hand on Giles’ shoulder, and the other on mine, with Lady Hawkshaw and Daphne In the background. He began by roundly damning Sir Thomas Vernon, "and a lady who shall be nameless.” Nevertheless. In spite of some vagaries, the speech was full of sound sense, and he promised the people, if they gave him their suffrages for parliament he would do all in his power for the abolition of the bar barous law from which Giles Vernon had suffered so cruelly. He averred that it was impossible for a seaman, alone and unaided, to take care of him self on dry land. Jack ashore being a helpless creature at best, and but for Lady Hawkshaw he would probably have been hanged himself long ago. This allusion to Lady Hawkshaw. who fairly divided the honors with Giles, brought forth yells of delight from the crowd. Her ladyship appeared and bowed magnificently, and it was a reg ular triumph for us all, from beginning to end. Next day, with Giles, we all started for London, the happiest coach load of people in the three -kingdoms. by MOLLY ELLIOT SEAWELI. c oerm*#r /jw or oaoaimeoßUL ca Two days after our arrival, we read the announcement of the marriage, at St. George’s, Hanover Square, of Sir Thomas Vernon to Lady Arabella Stor mont. Sir Peter was delighted at this match, and so was Lady Hawkshaw, and for once they were agreed. The position of the newly-married couple in London was anything but a pleasant one; for Giles became the object of public sympathy, and of popular and royal approval. The prince of Wales sent for him, and our visit to Windsor, whither we all went to thank the king, was made a triumph for us. Sir Thomas and Ludy Vernon were for bidden the court and Carlton house, and were frequently hissed in public. I saw them myself at Drury Lane, when they were hissed. Sir Thomas merely grinned, while Lady Arabella surveyed the scowling faces before her with a slow sweet smile, and calmly played with the diamonds in her stomacher. We had a whole year of happiness. The dreadful experience Giles had been through began to tell on him, and he was permitted to remain quiet ly a year on shore. And I, because of Giles, was given a year with my bride before I had to leave her. And what a year of blessedness it was to all! We all lived with Sir Peter and Lady Hawkshaw in Berkeley Square, and those two honest souls took delight in us. Lady Hawkshaw became a hero ine, and the worthy woman enjoyed it thoroughly. Overton came sometimes to see us. A persecution had been set on foot against him; and he was sev- I Saw Giles Vernon with Pinioned Hands. eral times arrested and sentenced for unlawful assemblage. Hut persecution was not the way to prevail with Over 1 ton. It was very well understood who in stigated these continued persecutions, and that did not help to Increase the popularity of Sir Thomas and his beau tiful wife. At last, a year to the month after the trial at York, the last Indig nity was offered to Overton. He was sentenced to be whipped at the cart’s tail, and set in the pillory. There was a general rally of his friends; and on the winter morning when this barbarous sentence was to be carried out. a number, including many persons of note, were assembled at the prison, when Sir Peter and I joined them. We soon heard that the government would not permit the first part of the sentence to be carried out; but when Overton emerged from the prison he was unaware of this, and prepared for the worst. The holy calmness of his countenance and air brought even Sir Peter to admit that "the pious dog is a man, after all." When informed that he would not be whipped Overton only remarked: "My Master was scourged. Why should I rebel?" Arrived at the place of punishment, we found a great crowd assembled, of all sorts of persons, among them some of the highest quality. Overton sa luted them, and with the utmost dig nity submitted to the cruel and hateful punishment. He had, however, the un disguised sympathy of the officers of the law, as well as of the crowd, and was treated with the utmost tender ness. He was to spend three hours pil loried, and it was made the greatest triumph of his life. It is possible for a good man under going unjust punishment to be digni fied, even in the pillory; and so it was with Overton. His singular beauty, the mildness of his countenance, the uncomplaining fortitude with which he submitted to an odious and miserable position, the remembrance of his past military services, showed him to be every Inch a man. Many of his friends came in their coaches, and. descending and going up to Overton, saluted him respectfully and expressed their sym pathy, to which Overton gently re turned thanks. At last a very splendid coach appeared. It was magnificently horsed with four thoroughbreds, and had outriders, besides two huge foot men with nosegays. It drew up in front of the pillory, and within it sat Lady Vernon, superbly dressed; and in her arms she held a very young infant in a great robe of lace and satin. Two nurses sat on the front seat; and Sir Thomas’ saturnine countenance glared behind Lady Vernon's beautiful, trium phant face. The coach stopped; and Ludy Vernon, holding tho child up In her arms, directly in front of Overton’s eyes, gave him a smile ana a meaning look, as much as to say: "Poor wretch! your inheritance is gone!” The crowd, which was never in a good humor with the Vernons, began to hiss vigorously. This they appeared not to mind; but when hisses were fol lowed by a shower of stones and sticks, the equipage rolled off at the top of Its speed. At 12 o’clock Overton was released, and at once he was exhorting the peo ple to fear God and live truly to him. He was not Interrupted by the con stables who were present, and was listened to with solemn attention. Ho has preached ever since, and has never again been molested. And when a dear little girl came to my Daphne—l was then at sea. fighting the French — Overton was at the christening, and made a prayer over her infant head, which my Daphne believes will keep that dear child good and holy all her life. Giles Vernon, now Capt. Vernon, in command of his majesty’s ship Acasta, 44, is counted the smartest of the young captains in the British service. The women still love him; but Giles has grown a little shy of going too far with them, and swears he will die a bachelor. However, there appears to be an affair forward between my little Daphne, who is now four years and six months old, and Capt. Vernon, and I think something will come of it when she is of a marriageable ago—and so thinks her mother, too. (THE END.) NURSES FOR PAMPERED DOGS. New Occupation for Girls In London, and It Pays Well. With tho Increasing craze for dogs of rare and valuable breeds as pets in England a new employment for girls has been created. They can become dog nurses. It is no uncommon thing to see in t.be squares and parks a pretty girl in a neat uniform with two or three valuable little dogs on leash, giving them their dally airing. She is a dog nurse, and this is only one of her duties. Besides the exercising of the pets the nurse must see to their food, which is no small matter. Special things are cooked and the dogs must be carefully watched while they eat to see that nothing goes wrong. Then the bath is a serious affair. Some times a silver bathtub is used and scented water. The nurse must also look after the toilet of her charges. When they go out with their mistress she must see that they are in proper trim, with their little coats carefully brushed and cleansed and their Jeweled collars bright and sparkling. After they have retired at night her time is her own, and for the most part she considers her five dollars a week very easily earned, for she has her board and lodging provided as well as her uniform. One of the great requisites for tho new profession is that the applicant shall have an extinct sense of humor. Authoritative. A lady novelist writing a political story wants information as to how a political convention is conducted. Gen erally speaking the convention is opened with prayer and conducted with five aces and a razor.—Louisville Courier-Journal. IRELAND for PLEASURE MANT BEAUTIFUL SPOTS JSU.no/SLf/lA. KS/YMARf It is a remarkable fact that no one ever returns from a visit to the south of Irelnnd without having something to say in praise of the country he has left behind him. The south of Ireland on Saxon lips, generally means the Lakes of Killar ney; but, ns a matter of fact, there is hardly an acre «>f the kingdom of Kerry, especially of its coast-line, that is not exquisitely beautiful. Now that means of transit are both so rapid and reasonable, it is a pity that all this beauty is not better known. The best way to make its acquaintance is to go by rail to Kenmare, and then, following the coach road round the coast, lead up to Killarney, if desired, as final. From Kenmare the road runs close to the sea, though high above it, leaving Dromon rustle to keep watch over the blue waters of Ken mare bay on the left, until tho bridge is reached beneath which tho river Hlackwater (one of 17 Blackwaters in Great Britain and Ireland, by the way), rushes seaward down a fern clad ravine. Then<*‘ the track de scends through thickets of wind gnarled oak and glistening arbutus, intersected by water-courses, half hid den beneath a luxuriant growth of the great Osmunda regalis, to Parknasilla. Parknasilla is an ideal spot for anyone in search of wurmth and sun shine. On the north and east It is sheltered from harsh winds by high mountains, and the breeze that blows in from tho Atlantic brings with it a balmy temperature of the gulf stream. In this sheltered spot palms and aloes will winter safely out of doors, and the huge growth attained by delicate, semi-tropical evergreens testifies .to the equableness of the climate. Those who can afford to travel in tho leisure ly manner such surroundings demand should loiter a day or two at Parkna silla at the Great Southern hotel, once a bishop's pnlace, whose beauti ful wooded grounds stretch to the water's edge. Close at hand Is the lovely Gararisli island, where sandy, sunny coves form an ideal resting place for a summer afternoon. Winding up from Parknasilla through groves of oak and beech, the road leads at last Into the wilder beauty of the hills, which rise on the right hand into the precipitous heights of Crohan mountain. Once upon a time this district was populous with miners and smelters, for the moun tains are rich In copper; but there are no signs of human habitation there now. Another interesting relic of the past, close by. is Cahlrdanlel, the site of an old Danish fort, eloquent of stormy times. The sea appears once more at Derry mine, where a ruined abbey stands ou on a rocky penin sula, while the erstwhile home of Dan iel O'Connell, “the Liberator,” stands within a stone’s throw. From Derrynane tho scenery is a succession of mountain passes until the road descends to Watervllle, lying midway between the sea on one hand and Currane lake on the other. Watervllle affords ideal headquarters for the fisherman The lough Is well stocked with brown trout, which give good sport throughout the season, and the white trout < mne up from the sea annually to spawn. The sea angler will appreciate the pollack, a fish which will put up a good fight on a rod with light tackle and prove equally good eating when landed. The archae ologist also will find Watervllle worth a prolonged stay, and the prehistoric remains of Staigue fort, within easy distance, are reported to be at least 2,000 years old.

For tho remainder of the journey the way crosses rocky moorland in terspersed with bog and heather, until the railway Is regained at Cahirciveen. The interest in this section of the road lies chiefly seaward, where be yond cliff-bound Hallinskelligs bay lie the two islets known as the Great and Little Skelllgs. The Great Skellig is a lighthouse station, and on the sum mit of tho rock are some Interesting beehive dwellings reported to be of monastic origin. The Little Skellig is one of tho largest breeding stations or the gannet nnd puffin round our coasts, and the huge colony of birds who do not leave the rock until the autumn is well worth visitig on a calm day. The whole distance from Kenmare to Cahirciveen Is 60 miles, and there is not a mile of It that is not worth seeing, both for its beauty nnd its as sociations; but a shorter route more suitable for cyclists or those who do not care for a long coach journey lies over the mountain pass of Ballagh bema. By this route the traveler fol lows the main road from Kenmare as far as the Hlackwater bridge and then, turning aside, follows tho stream up into the mountain which divides its watershed from that of the Caragh river. Following this river he comes down to Caragh lake, where the rail way appears again. The salmon and trout fishing, both in the lake an*d the surrounding rivers, are excellent, and should he desire to try them he can not do better than stay at the New Southern hotel. The Caragh river Is reserved for the guests here, as are 25.000 acres of shooting. Indeed, n winter visit to Caragh in search of snipe and cock will well repay the trouble of a channel crossing. Bath ing and boating are perfect, and there is a golf course close at hand. Witchcraft Survival In England. Remarkable stories of the preva lence of witchcraft In Somerset and of strange medical beliefs common In the country were told at a meeting of teachers at Bury, near Dulverton. Dr. Syndenbam, Dulverton. said that herbalists nnd white witches were still living among them, to say noth ing of “the doctor," or seventh son. The belief was widely held that whoop ing cough could be cured by placing the sufferer on the ground in a sheep fold; epilepsy by procuring silver coins from friends and having them made into a necklace or bracelet to be worn by the sufferer, and hemorrhage and burns by the chanting of a strange prayer. A seventh son, especially if he were the seventh son of a seventh son, was as much sought after In some parishes as if he were a Harley street special ist. His patients were attended on Sunday mornings, after fasting, the cure being by touch and prayer.—Lon don Daily Mall. An Old Sheep. A Bengali clerk, who had been trans ferred at his own request from Sir Arthur Fanshawe’s office to another government office in Calcutta, Was anxious to return and wrote to Sir Arthus personally on tho subject. Although not a Christian himself, he was evidently acquainted with the fa miliar lines of Bomar’s hymn: “I wiih a wandering sheep, I did not love the fold.” and this is how he applied them to his own case: "It is true I have wandered from the fold, i. e., the dlrector-Gen eral’s office, but I trust that your honor will be merciful and receive back an old sheep."—Westminster Ga zette. He Started. He had been there since 8 o'clock and It was now 11. "Are you interested in Mr. Weston's wonderful walk?” she asked him. “Oh, yes,” he answered. "Do you think you could walk as far?” she went on. "Oh, no," he quickly replied; “I’m sure I couldn’t." "But how can you be sure,” said the dear girl. “If you never start?" Then he started. the book of Proverbs, chapter ten, is given a Jewish thinker’s idea of the dangers of wealth and the opportuni ties of poverty. “The rich man's wealth is his strong city, the destruc tion of the poor is their poverty.” Also Gray’s Elegy expresses the en lightened thinking of his time. Herbert Spencer in his autobiogra phy says that he would have been unable to write many of his books had pot he received legacies from rela tives. Newton was in easy circum stances and had abundant leisure. Darwin writes in his autobiography: "I had ample leisure from not having to earn my bread.” And the Greek thinkers from Thales to Aristotle ei ther possessed means or were in posi tions that enabled them to work with out any “spur of poverty." It is as reasonable to say that one could work to better advantage had he to use a sword in one hand while he worked with a spade in the other or that the spur of war was necessary for industrial progress.—Communica tion in New York Times.

Nelson P. Dame Holds Daily Meeting In Front of Old Custom House in Gotham. Although this is the dull season In Wall street. Rev. Nelson P. Dame does not ulways find it easy to draw an audience when he stands at noon in front of tho old custom house build ing nnd makes his dally talks on re ligious subjects. The street has be come accustomed to the figuro and style of Rev. W. J. Wilkinson, who for many years preached a dnlly ser mon on the same si>ot. It listened to Mr. Wilkinson very attentively and gave him a rousing reception when he brought the bishop of Loudon to address the brokers one day last year. Mr. Wilkinson is doing missionary work for Trinity church and Mr. Rev. Nelson P. Dame. Dame has become his successor. He is known facetiously to the brokers as "the bishop of Wall street." These Wall street sermons are delivered in colloquial stylo to whomsoever may be attracted by the novelty of lis tening to a sermon on the open street. They are, however, rather frank dis cussions of a broad morality than doc trinal sermons. Mr. Dame will un doubtedly work his way Into the heart of Wall street if he has a personality like that of Mr. Wilkinson, and will find himself In time preaching to as large an audience. The services are conducted under the auspices of the Evangelistic campaign committee. The World Went Round. When Blogglns.

The applause subsiding. Master Bloggins was observed by one of the company to be looking .ar from well. His face had taken on the hue of put ty. and his eyes stood out like small hat-pegs. "Good graciauß, Willie! What’s tho matter?” cried Mrs. Bloggins in alarm. “I believe you've been smoking." Willie shook his head. “ ’Taln't that,” he declared, untruth fully. “If It’s true what father's been Binging about, I —l reckon I'm in love!" Condensing the Earth’s Area.
