THE HOME OF THE FRoCHIIAIRDS. a Mother Frochard led Louise along i the streets in a careful manner. al though had the poor girl not been so a engrossed with the thoughts of the loss she had just sustained, she would have noticed that although they walked in a leisurely manner though 0 those streets that were evidently deserted, the old woman quickenedh her pace very perceptibly whenever they approached any traveler. For some moments neither La F'roch ard nor Louise spoke. The one was thinking of the prize she had tound' tl and of the best means of making her serve her purpose. while the other was thinking of the sister she had lost. Now it was not Mother Frochard's custom to walk through the streets in this quiet manner: for she was a pro- tl fessional beggar, and her monotonous. nasal cry of "Charity, good people- a charity for a poor old woman," was well known in the quarters which she frequented. But on this ocasion, she ti fd not wish to let Louise know what h her business was: and again, she did not wish to attract attention, as she feared it might excite suspicion if she p was observed with the neatly dressed, n innocent looking country girl. a "Have you always been blind, my l( dear?" she asked, in what was intend- ti ed to be kind, motherly voice. "Oh, no, madame." repied Louise. h "I have only been blind two years." "Two years:" replied La Frochard: a "and what caused you to lose your tl sight?" "I was very sick with a fever, and something seemed to grow over my eyes," replied Louise sadly, as she b thought of the time when she was thus shout out from the world and imprison ed, as it were. within herself. b "I don't suppose there is any chance b of your ever being cured, is there?" asked the old woman, with a view of finding out whether there was any ~ chance of the girl's being able to leave her motherly care. -f, "Henriette thinks that I may be cured: there are so many skillful physicians in this city," -answered s Louise, with tears filling her eyes agains as she was thus so vividly reminded of IV her sister. "She sold all we possessed a to raise money enough to pay the doc-I tors." "So you had property, then?" 'sA very little. madame. When our dear parents died they left us the lit tle cottage in which we lived. But how much further have we to go?" r And Louise's voice, as she asked the question, told plainly how weary she t was-t "Only a few steps. dear. We are d poor people, and can not live in fine houses, so we have a little house by a the river. But courage," said the old woman, patting her on the shoulder. d "We shall soon be there."; Wearily the blind girl followed her guide. She was entirely worn out by b, the excitement and fatigues of the day, and any shelter, however humble or poor, would have been gladly welcom ed by her. "We shall find my sister in the e morning, shall we not madames" ask ed Louise, for the second time.' tl * "It may take some days." replied I Mother Prochard, evasively. "You I must try not to think of her tonight." A prayer went up from the poor girl's heart that her sister might be g speedily restored to her, and she silent ly followed the old woman. After they had walked. as it seemed to Louise,. many miles, Mother Frochard stopped h before a house which, from the outside appearance, had formerly been a boat- e' house. It was in the last stages of ~ decay, and the whole surroundings ir seemed a fit abode of crime. "Here we are, dear: here we are at last!" said the old woman. as she led -Louise through a long, dark passage, and then down several damp, s1 moldy steps, and left tier standing in a small entry, reeking with noisome odors, wnile she fumbled in her capaci ous pockets for the key. The door was opened at last, and the two entered a large square room, theF furniture of which was of the rudest description. Two large, barn-like doors, which opened on the water front. and which were barred with heavy wooden bars, showed that ata some very remote time the building had been used, as its outside appear- I ance indicated, for a boat-house. A flight of steps led from the centre h of the room to what was probably the garret: but several straw beds in one corner of the room showed that the lower floor was the only portion of the . house which was used. a Louise shuddered as she entered thea damp, disagreeable-smelling room: but her feelings would have been muchy worse could she have seen the vile b place, and the gleam of triumph which shone in the old woman's eyes as she sawv that she had her prize securely caged.p "Sit down there." said La Frochard. "and I will get von something~ to eat. And the old w'oman led Louise to a chair, where, by placing her hands onl her shoulders, 'she forced her to be seated. "I do not care to eat. madame." said Louise, piteously. "If vou will allow me to go to my room. I'will re tire." "Go to your room"' cried Mothera Frochard in a hard. shrill voice, from e. which all the assumed tenderness had fled. "Do you think we keep an mn?~ - n And the old wretch stood, with her. hands on her hips, before the poor girl, I" who shrunk from before the mocking IY< words as from a blow. , "I-did--not know, madame." she t< faltered: "I was v'ery weary. and want ed to retire." "Well, if you want to go to sleep. Ip you can do ~that over here." and the rU old woman led her toward the beds in the corner " These are good enough pl for my handsome Jacques. and 1 guess they will do for you my. tine lady."d "'Anything will do for me. madame," '|w said Louise, in a conciliatory tone. "I i'b did not know you were so poor: but h Henriette wviii pay you to-morrow when we find her." Itl And with a sigh of thankfulness for t i the resting-place. poor' and wretehed h< as it was.

"Go back. cripple." laughed Jacques. it the same time giving the boy a blow ,hich laid him senseless on the floor. 'Go on. mother.'' he said to the old lag.

" To be continued. Well Deserved Praise. It is a positive pleasure to a man in public life to receive the well done of the people of the Sate. The kind ex pressions of the State press concern ing Governor McSweeney's adminis tration are public property, but it is not so with the numerous letters that he receives. Pretty nearly 3very day he receives letters commending his administration. and recently be con sented to the publication of one of the many and a type of those received. It is from Mr. A. N. Wood, a conserva tive citizen of Galiney. one who is at the head of banking and cotton mill interests. and who has large interests in upper Carolina. He writes as fol lows: Gatiney.

Wednesday afternoon a negro calling himself Joe Mack presented at the People's Loan and Exchange bank of Laurens a check payable to himself or bearer and purporting to be signed by a leading planter for $137. The bank flicers instantly suspected the fraud ulence of the signature and declined the man until investigation could be made. After some time the negro became alarmed and suddenly started away, leading through a window, breaking the sash. A cry was raised and the man was captured by several young men who were in the chase. 'The negro, whose name was ascertain ed to be Willis Henderson. is in jail. Hie declares that he is not the man who was in the bank, but the oilicers later identified him positively, Hie declares that he cannot write ana it is possible that he had an accomplice. To the check was pinned a -scrap of' paper with weights of several bales of cotton and the negro pretended that| the check was to pay him icr his share y of cotton sold. A Big Contract. A special to the State from Winns boro says the Winnsboro Granite com pany has just been awarded the larg est contract in granite work ever let in this State. They were the lucky bidders for the granite work on the new capital building of Pennsylvania to be erected at Harrisburg. The to tal cost of this massive structure will be about $3,000,000. The contract for the granite work is far more than a million. The company is now work ing about 200 skilled stonecutters with a pay roll of over $15,000 per month. This big job will require at least 200 additional cutters for a period oft three to ive years. As soon as this full orce is organized, the monthly pay roll of the company will go beyond the 30,000 mark. The big contracts now being taken by this progressive com pany assures Fairtield a permanent place in the granite industry. To See the System.

In about half an hour after La rochard and Louise entered the house. id while the old woman was still minuning with the brandy bottle. a ud bustle was heard in the passage st outside the door. Mother Frochard listended 1!itenti, id gazed toward the ed. as if to see hether the noise would awake the rl. until several leud curses in a well- f own voice caused a complacent wile to appear upon her face, and she aned back in her chair. saying: --1- . Jacques my handsome Jac At the same moment, with a drunken agger. Jacques entered the room. "Well, my boy. what luck?" asked s mother, as she gazed admiringly >on him. *The worst of luck," answered .ac tes. sullenly, as he seated himself pon a low stool, and began filling his pe. "Marianne has deceived me." "Deceived you! Oh. the wrecth," claimed the old woman, in a tone hich told plainly what Marianne tight expect if she should get her in er grasp once. "But how aid she de ive you?" "She gave herself up to the guard. told her to find a purse, and after she ad done it. she gave herself up to get way from me, so she said." Just then Louise made a movement I her sleep which attracted Jacques' ttention. "Hallo: What have you got here?' e asked, as he went toward the bed. Mother Frochard related the story how she found Louise, and when she ad concluded, Jacques gave vent to is satisfaction in a prolonged whistle. "What do you mean to do with er" he asked, at length, still gazing pon the beautiful face of the sleeping il. "She shall go out with me and sing: ie money will come in fast enough ien. I'll warrant," replied the old wo tan betaking herself once more to er bottle. "Hallo: it's full again, is it?" said acques, as he reached over, and taking ie bottle from his mother's hand. yok a draught which was both long ad deep. Mother and son, as they sat there, ith all the brutality in their hard na ires aroused by the fiery liquid they ad drunk, were a well-mated cbuple, ad Louise seemed as much out of lace in their den as a lily-of-the-valley 'ould be in the midst of fungus. The evening meal had been prepared ad nearly dispatched when Pierre, coking fadea and sorrowful, entered le hut with his wheel strapped upon is back. Neither his mother nor Jacques paid ny attenten to him as he entered, and e went quickly to the further end of ae room to leave his wheel, when he -as arrested by the sight of the sleep With a low cry expressive of delight e stooped and gazed at the lovely ce. Then leaving his wheel in its :customed place, he returned to the edside, and kneeling down, looked at er much as a pilgrim might at the [ecca of his faith. "Look-at the cripple," said Jacques his mother, and then both broke out a coarse laugh which aroused him ~om his w'norship. He ate the fragments which had een left by his mother and Jacques, lently, and then commenced to do me work which he had brought home -ith him, while the other two began night of drinking, which was the rule ither than the exception. The morning came. and with it the rst intimation to poor Louise of what er life would be. She was aroused by the heavy hand [Mother Frochara, who pulled her ughy to a standing position. "et up, my fine lady, get up and try, earn your own living. You don't iink that we can keep you in idleness, you?" said the old wretch, in a voice hich was yet thick from the effects fthe previous niqht's dissipation. For a moment Louise could not un erstand where she was, or what had append, and then like a flood the re iembrance of her loss rushed over She could make no reply; indeed, she rlv half understood what had been id to her, and sitting down on the :ge of the bed, she commenced to Pierre and Jacques were watching ae; proceedings. The former with a ok of pity and compassion, and the Ltter the amusement. "Now, then!" exclaimed the old wo ian, as she dragged the girl to her et again. "Can you sing. Loise did not reply, but wept more jolently. "Can you sing?" screamed the old ag. at the same time grasping the por girl by the arm in a mnanner which used her to wince with pain. "Yes-yes, madame:" replied Louise, affriht. "Weil, I want you to come out with te, and earn your living!" "How madame?" "How? Why, by singing in the :reets, to be sure." "I can not, madame, I can not!" ex aimed the poor girl, piteously. "You tid we should find my sister today." "It will take me many 'days to" find >ur sister, I'm thinking!" snarled La 'rochard, "and you've got to help your -iends?" "You mean for me to beg?" gasped ouiSe. "No. my lady. You do the singing, ad I'll do the begging." Louise cowered down upon the bed ke one stricken with a blow. "You'll have to L:.k that out of er," laughed Jacques who was enjoy ig the spectacle. "But you promised her that you ould find her sister," said Pierre, stily wiping the tears from his eyes, ad starting to his feet. "Oh, ho, master cripple, who told >u to speaky Go sit down:" said Jac aes, dealing the lame boy a violent low, which sent him reeling to the irtier end of the room. "Now, then," said Mother Frochard ho had brought an old dress and a lir of shoes to the weeping girl, "you ill take off your fine clothes and put 1ese on. They will become you much etter." "adame!" exclaimed Louise, fall ig on her knees before the old woman I pray you to help me find my sister. tadane, for the love of Heaven help te, or I shall go mad:" A coarse laugh from La Frochard ad Jacques drowned Pierre's pitying clamation. "Don't waste any timne with hei', other." said Jacques. "That I won't," said the old woman. Now, look here, 1 am willing to help >u tind v'our sister: but that will take me. and you've got to do something >ward supporting the family first." And the fiend in woman's form be mn to unloose the blind girl's clothes, ~eparatory to changing them for the gs which she intended her to wear. "Do not force her to beg, mother," eaded the lame boy. "Shut up:" was Jacques brutal or r. at the same time threatening him ith his hand. "The girl has got to g and that's the end of it: we'll find er' sister when we get ready'." These words, and the tone in which ev were uittered. showed Lourise why iese people had taken her to their yme, and she resolv'ed not to submit the indignity. "I will not beg:" she exclaimed. bile the color rose to her cheeks. Eou may kill me. but 1 will not beg: will ask the first person I meet to ye me from your vile hands." GRAND ARMY FOAL naps Out In:vected Bray at the Imn mortal Lee aid Hantipton. The veterans of the Grand Army of he lcpublic and their friends were ntertained Wednesday in Washington y a parade given in honor of the na- . al veterans and b1y) a number of re inions held in the big assembly tent at a :amp Roosevelt. The naval parade of he forenoon was rot as large as many R hat have been seen in Washington >ut it was in every way interesting. k he veterans of the navy each appear -d to be an embodiment of much of a ,he nation's recent history. and every quad of them was an object of inter- a sted observation. They were gener L0y old men, and many bore evidences f wounds received in battle. In strik :g contrast to them were the young y nen of all the branches of the present ;ervice who marched with them. They c neluded representatives of both the and and naval forces and elicited j nuch favorable comment for their fine ppearance as men. as they did for t ;heir excellent discipline. k The parade was reviewed from the tand in front of the White House by b dmiral Dewey and Commander in e gief Torrance. With them were Sec 'etaries Moody and Root. Admiral 1 raylor and most of the members of d he diplomatic corps now in the city. dmiral Dewey was in full uniform t mnd was accompanied by two aides. 9 All day long a constant stream of isitors and veterans moved by the v temporary White House and looked s p at the window of the room on the econd floor. which is occupied by the d >resident. At times several hundred v >eople were collected on the sidewalk )pposite. Many of the veterans as- n :ended the stairs and inquired con- 1; :erning the president's condition. During the day there were a num- c )er of reunions regiments, divisions, o :orps and armies. All of them were ield in the large tents at Camp Roose- v elt. The huge tent which has been s riven the name Gen. Philip Sheridan, 1 vas crowded during the afternoon. he principal speakers were Secretary s toot. Gov. Bliss of Michigan, Gen. J. t E. Wilson and Capt. William Potter v >f the Ninth Pennsylvania cavalry, president of the Soldiers and Sailors n flights league. t Gov. Bliss spoke of his recent ap- d >ointment to the senate of ex-Secre :ary Alger, saying that it was a vindi- c ration of an ex-soldier who had been t nuch vil tied. Gen. Wilson referred e :o the proposal to erect a monument :o Gen. Robert E. Lee, saying that )ur monuments should be to men who c 2ad assisted in keeping the flag flying f nd not to those who would have pull- t id it down if they could have cone so. ,apt. Potter endorsed Gen. Wilson's ;entiments. He said he had been pre- s .ent when Joe Johnson surrendered to t men. Sherman and then had heard c Sen. Wade Hampton, in command of 'he Confederate cavalry, swear that e would lead the cavalry to Mexico efore it should capitulate.

In the farmers national congress at acon. Ga.. on Wednesday. the deliv ry of an address on reciprocity by Lon.. .lohn K. Campbell of MIichigan 1 3eveloped a wide divergence of opinion >n that subject among the delegates. ~r. Campbell argued for protection to oster agricultural interests and inci lentally the sugar beet growers of Nticigan. He asserted that the time ad come for farmers to combine and :hrough thorough organization secure :onsideration of their needs and~the snactment of such legislation as would arotect them in their interests. He ~avored an American market for Ame ican products under protection to ~armers, whereby American labor 'ould be the beneficiary. Delegates rom Ohio. Indiana,Georgia and other, tates took issue with some of his ar ~uments and his plea for protection or the farmers. It was argued by hose delegates who took issue. with Ir. Camobell that the trusts were the t ~reatest menace to thie farmer and hat the tariff was the fostering in uence under which the trusts thrived ~ ud fattened themselves at the ex ense of the American consumer.

Former Chicago Billion= aire, Anxious to Secure His Be lease from the Navy in Order to Begin Life Over Again. Edward L. Dwyer, once a millionaire mine owner, promoter and bold specu lator in wheat, who startled even Chi iago.> by his daring, and who later mar ried a duchess worth millions of dol lars. sailed into the Brooklyn navy yard the other day a marine'on the United States transport Calgoa. Dressed in his natty sailor suit, his face bronzed by the Philippine sun, his musces hardened by work, Dwyer looked little like a dashing speculator and husband of a duchess. Dwyer has been in the service of the Unite:!i States since July 31, 1900, when penn.?;s, disinherited by his aged wife, tired of wandering, he went to Rarrisburg and enlisted in the marine corps. The term of enlistment is three years, but Dwyer has influences at work in the navy department, and there is lit tle doubt that his early dis charge will be secured. Dwyer first attracted attention in 1s86, tht'n a member of the Chicago board of trade, by purchasing 1.000,000 bushels of wheat for future delivery . without depositing margins. While in New York in 1894, representing west ern mining interests, he met the Duchess de Castelluccia, whose hus band had died only a short while be fore. leav:ng her a fortune estimated at $7.000.000. She was more than 40 years older than Dwyer, but he won - her, end the two were married at Bock Ridge. Fla.. January 29, 1895. The duchess died soon after the wed ding, leaving the bulk of her fortune to her' two children. Dwyer received $10.000. Dwyer then started on the road to financial ruin through speculation, and in May, 1899, he found himself pen niless. He filed a petition in bankrupt cy in New York, with liabilities of $252,055 and no visible. assets. But Dwyer within a year had organized a company with a capital of $1,500.000 to develop silver mines in Zacatecas. Mexico. Apparently this scheme was not successful, and a year later he was again penniless. It was then that be enlisted and was assigned to service in the Philippines. While Dwyer was in the Philippines he looked about him for favorable in vestments and he thinks enterprise there will open the way to fortune. It is said that the bronzed-marine will go back to the islands immediately upon receiving his discharge. REMAINS OF MONSTER BIRD. Valuaile Discovery Made in Soathera Part of Argentine Roy.bDU.. Larger Than the Dodi. Brief information of the discovery in Patagonia, or rather, of the south ern 'part of the Argentine Republic, of part of the remains of an extinct bird that, in size, outrivals any of the - forms known to science, either living or extinct, has just reached the chief ornithologist of the Smithsonian in: stitution, who regards the discovery as one of the first importance. The details thus far received are to the effect that a scientific party explor-. ing along the eastern foothmll ,of the Andes range unearthed from the strata of the tertiary age the skull of what they at first took to be a gigan tic bird of prey, but on subsequent examination they unearthed other parts that calised them to change their first view and reach the conchu sion that the bird must have beena water fowl. The size of this extinct bird, which the discoverers named the "phorarachis," is, according to the reports, something amazing, it having been at least a fourth larger than the "dodo"~ of Madagascar, a bird now ex tinct, but which until the finding of this Patagonian~ monster held -first place for size in the list of birds liv ing and extinct. The government or nithologists are anxiously awaiting further details of this interesting dis covery. American Cotton Output. The census bureau report issued to-<day on the cotton ginned in the United States shows the crop of 1900 to have been 10,486,148 commercial bales (bales as marketed) equivalent to 10,123,027 bales of the 500 pound standard or to 5,061,513,294 pounds. This is an increase of 840,174 corn mercial bales, or more than eight per cent. in excess of the 1899 crop. Texcas grew 34 per cent, of the en tire crop of 1900 and one-fourth of the world's crop of that year. Its crop increased 33 per cent. over 1R99,. the 1900 crop being 3,536,506- commer cial bales and the 1899 crop 2,658,555. East of the Mississippi production decreased. Students Sorry They Signed.
