Mr. Dower, of the IfiroriBC company, with hit haada deep in fait pocket. - runs; dovik into the ctrtet from the wmdo of hie pnrate o6ce o the tilth ioor.

But, anyhow, llaoager Dower wae thiakiog of her oalj of her when, with interest hit eje fell upon a nun ta.nding in 2 mm doonrtj on the oppoahe fide-walk. "I'm afraid she: & bit of a flirt," Dower wae thinking, aa he watched the nun edge ap to the curved sign. that proclaimed the pretence of the "Paris cafe on the second floor." "Perbapa she's already in lore wonder if f he like Joyce better than me." Then he lost bk thread of thought for the shabby man at the opposite doorway bad suddenly moved op to the sign, and, with a awift motion, pulled from behind it a white paper. "I t migh t have been a letter," thought Dower, and be watched. The wayfarer walked to the corner, opened theletterand read it hurriedly. Then he looked up to the very window where the manager was standing and walked fwiftly away. After that when Dower got into a brown study about Mis Craig he tried to make himtelf believe that it wk that sign which interested him, causing him to spend hours watching it. She bad just left the ofilec in the .twilight one evening, and he had as sumed hit favorite attitude at the window. Presently he taw her passing up the opposite ude. When ihe came in front of the Pari cafe she paused, hesitating for a moment, and then darted into the hallway. "Humph J" muicd the manager, "so Ehe's going to Eup downtown tonight." I5ut as he watched sho came out ogain at the door, reached behind the dingy sign, and walked swiftly away with a letter or gome white thing in her hand! For weeks Manager Dower had been ocrewing his courage up to the point of proposing. Jle was- in love with Jliss Craig, and as he saw that every man in the office was in the same fix, be was determined to be the firEt to ask her. JJut her little tryst at the sign of the Paris cafe put a damper on his enthusiasm. He must have wasted two hours the next day watching that sign. About three in the afternoon the tame shabby young man he had first noticed was there again. He plucked a letter from be hind the lettered tin and replaced it with another. Then for dfi)s .Mr. Dower was very btisj. Jle couldn't keep that queer poet oflice mter) out of hit mind, hut he hadn't time to watch. Sunday evening after a particularly troublesome week, during which he thought incessantly of 3Iiss Craig and her apparent airair with a very poor-looking fellow, he chanced to pa by the Paris cafe entrance. Jle went in, turned back, flood in the door a moment looking tip and down the street, and then! Nobody saw him, hut he almost ran to bis oflice. Then opening the Ietttr be had found, lie read: ''Dear Jazel: I may go to work J Mayday 1 eoodoetroB the 'L road. Do ton thnak that will aatiafy jor rs '?

Yoor ovn, Dower hang aroand bit office all that day. going oat to lunch with a long face aad looking very dolorous at ha tried to work at his accumulated maiL But at dusk he saeaked over to the tia sign aad put hack her letter. Tuesday evening ae Dower left the. office he noticed in a dark corner of tha hall a fgure that looked like Joyce. Miss Craig was yet in the of- ftce, so the manager, still tense upon ' his tacit pursuit of the little stenographer, loitered in a doorway opposite the street entrance of the building. He saw thtm coming out together Joyce and Haael. They walked north, the bookkeeper bending over her and talking assiduously. "By Jupiter," groaned the manager, at he watched them from afar, "that bin tern -jawed bookkeeper has beaten me to herafterall! Well, hell get what's coming to him, ail right." And he darted oft into a side street. The next day, as Dower no fed, Mr. Joyce was unusually morose, dilatory and contrary. He even surprised the genial manager by a flash of impudence. In the outer oflice he complained loudly of his "shivery" and openly boasted that he meant to retire "in favor of some natural-born slave." Dower noticed that he didn't to much as salute Miss Craig when she came in or passed out. On Saturday be gave notice. The manager tried to trap him into admitting hi failure with Hazel, but the Joyce insisted that he was tired of the grind, thit he had saved a competency and that he meant to raise sheep and sell the wool and mutton from his farm in CoUrado. On Monday, late in the evening, when Dower hsd finished dictating to Miss Craig and he was gathering up her note books and pencils, he turned to her suddenly and with odd embarrassment said: "Just a moment, Haze that is, Miss Craig. I want lo ask vou something." He got up and closed the door. She flushed crimson, knowing (the minx) the ill-concealed state of his heart. "I just want to ask you if you know a man " She was getting pale now. "A man, honest enough, decent enough, good enough, smart enough to" "To what?" she gasped, wondering how she could refuse his proirered love without losing her posit ion. "To recommend for bookkeeper," he concluded, eying her with pitiful satisfaction. You know Jo)ce has gone. I want some one in his place it pay '"jUjSOO a vear and if you know" "Ob, yes, sir," she was saving, as the blood rushed back into her pretty face. "I know the best man in the wor that is, a first-rate bookkeeper. He's honest and clever and the hand somest joung fellow." "Hold on, hold on," laughed Dower, looking at her with sad admiration, "he doesn't have to he but if you think he'll do send him to me." I She- could hardly wait to he and the next day when Manager Uower came into his oflice there awaited him a pale, frank-looking young man in the uniform of a conductor. He had a letter from Miss Craiir recommending him to the position which, Mr. Jojcohad vacated. Dower read it and looked at him Ciiv'oiifJy for a moment before he said: "AH right. William Gorse that's the name. n't it? Ill take her word far you. When can you get to work?" Thatk yoa very much, sir To-macro w," r':ed the man in gray.

Raffertyria Chicago SOLD HIS RESCUER. TUttinr, UatMaddazlf, Pltelai Vila aa fib On Life. Oa a reott Sunday a large r of datk settled down op;- te DorvaL Uoebc. m Lake St. Iuj, where the ice had melted 1800' . ubta4. Aa the provincial bf -tune eaacted but year that ib ujrb then should be no spring ahaot dueka, it should nevertheless b to shoot ar pied dncks, an excuse was given ta a large number of individuals for diftuvVia? the Sunday quiet by tha discharge of firearms. Among other ardent susxismer determined upoa killing aaj moring thing oader tha name of hsinnelead was an excitable young French ma a with an expeative gun and a fine Xewfoandland dog. Bysoaaestracge 4ake this man brought dawa a lack duck oa the ice on the other side of 50 feet of water. The dag, after same delay and much screaming from his owner, swam across tha water and seined the duck. Just as be did so the bird fluttered its wings, and the Newfoundland, re? aembering many a beating reTtd for taking live poultry in hie jaw, at once dropped it and returned for f instructions. The sporuman was enraged beyond measure by the laughter of his compaotoai, to whom he had bragged a good deal about the retrieving qualities of his dog, and he dealt two or three unmerciful h. w with his gun at the animal's bead. He was frantically cursing aad at the same time feeling for a atrtnrigc wherewith to kill the poor brute, when his feet slid off tha block of ice he was standing upon and ha fell ;nto deep water. Instantly the dog be had so shamefully abused a moment before sprang to the rescue of the drowning nan, and diving brought him to the Then with great effort he got him within reach of hia friends, w ho helped htm aahore. None af the party appeared to think verywuch of the magnanimous achievement of the Newfoundland, and after a good pull at a flask the gunner, whose weapon wa now at the bottom of the lake, wa paddled ashore, ar.d dejectedly made his way toward the nearest house. Two bank clerks who were passing on a Sunday morning tramp to church, and who had witnoed the whole occurrence, walked along with the Frenchman toward the little cottage, congratulating him or his escape. One of tbe two remarked at they Reared the door: "I don't suppose man) men have money enough to buy that dog from you now ?" "Ah, yes," was the unexpected reply from the man whose life be bad just saved, "J sell him toou for one dollar and a half. Not too mocb.eh? Ht'es fine big dog, that one." 1 he bank clerk was taken aback for a moment, and then produced three half dollars from bis pocket, which he handed to the bedraggled one with the observation; "I giies you know the value of our life better than I do. Ill take'the dog, but I'll be hanged if I didn't think a good deal more of his sense before vou spoke than 1 do now." X. Y. Sun. Hens Hatching Fish Eggs.
