' BY STEPHF.N BRENT. "So yonr miml is fully inailo ui Margery T "Yes I believe it is." "And vou will marry Mr. Clare tor bis money, uud live miserable ev0r after!" "By no means Guy. I intend to be nerlVclly happy. Who would' be. us flie mistress of one ot tbo tint'Kt nliiee's in the country!" "You won't be I know. You had better accept my oiler and marry tor love." "No thank you Guy. I am nut going to live in one little stuffy room, and burn myself into it bus ter. Hesitlen, I wttiit something more than bread mid cheesf, and two nrint dresses ner annum." Guy Chesly laughed lustily. "But vou know money is the root of all evil, is it not!" turning to Margery's sister who sat by the window sew inr. "Yes and am sorry to hear Margery talk as if outy money was necessary to her Happiness. ' "Indeed it K and I'll take goodly sh'iVre of the root however evil it may be," balancing herself on the kitchen table, making that useful article of household furui- ture creak Utamally. She was slendVV. graceful girl, with hazel eyes and dark hair; not exactly pretty but very attractive.

Laytngr Ids hands liglUJy on her shoulders, he looked down smiling into her eyes aud said : "I have a presentiment that you will never marrv Mr. Clare and tluit we will live iu tlib stufty roUin vet." "Well vonr presentmeniis wrong then," defiantly, "tor- tor , "lie has proposed!" Yes" flushing to tho edge of her silkv huir. "Auiyou navesiiiuyesj'' moving away from ner. "No I shall not irive him his answer till after the ball." "But it will be favorable!" "Yes l'iu sure it will." ' - "1 coneratulate you Margery, on your flue sense of honor, aud yonr truthfulness. Yon have always been trying to instil those useiui virtues in my niinu, out now i think I could turn teacher." His voice w as as quiet, and cool as ever, but there was n change iu it, a . t c a- 1 ling ot scorn win Jiargcrj icn. 'Well 1 dont care," recklessly, "novcrtv is hateful, always trying to make something out ot nothing, and always failing. As for honor, snd truth, they are considered quite old fashioned now." "Marcerv I ani shocked at you, ' cried Miss 5orman dropping her work. :' ' "' 1 "' "Well you know it is so, sinter." Guy Chenley Uoghed. "Yon are getting quite, cynical .Margery, where; did yon learu so much worldy knowledge!"

Ruth smiled with loving glance at ner joung sister. "Yes I must go witlt Margery." "I will send roa some flowers then." and Guy left. Handsome Guy Cbesly. Margery walked to the window, and watched the tall figure going down the walk. Her old friend and playfellow, and her lover now. It was wicked, aud all that for money, but what could she do! tench the village school! be the village dressmaker! r marry Guy and be poor all her life! With the glamor of the brilliant life she could spend, as Donald Clare's wife, over her, she felt she could not do cither of the three things, no matter how much she might love Guy. ! Her sister interrupted her mu. sing by saying. f "Will you go gather some straw berries for dinner! and ilsrgery glad to 'escape from Iter own thoughts, seized the basket sand wiit V' When Mr. Che-sly arrived at his boardinc house there was a letter for him. He didn't feel the least bit curious about it; he was too. indolent for curiosity ; calmly lit a eiirar a man's comforter under all nffliction aiul elevating his feet in tlie window, broke the seal. It was only a lawyer's communi cation, but it told him bis last rela tive was dead, and he was worth half a million. Halt a million! Guy Chcsly sat and stared out into the bright sunny street. In all his six and twenty years, he had not been so utterly surprised, so completely upset. It seemed almost like a dream, but it was not one; thut was clenr. LI is first composed thought was ot wilful Margery Norman, and a tender light came in his eyes as he said : "She shall marry me now, but not for the money's Rake." The ball was like all other balls. There was the usual amount of dancing, and fiirtiiij?, disappoint ments, and indigestible food. Mar gery qncened it right royally in white, pure as drifted snow, with pale, sweet roses iu her dark braids aud at her round white throat. If there had been any lingering doubts in her mind about accepting Mr. Clare, they were cleared awa.V now, aud she WiV& recklef.sly iudif ferreut as to what tbe future might hold, thinking, enjoying Only tlie present. Gny was there, and more aggra vating than ever, at least -Margery thoiiL'lit so. She siiuulteit linn but Tie would t bo snubbed, only laughing at henn aprovoking way lint there was a strong determined will under his endurance, as Mar gery knew of old, and his culm per sisteuce irritated her. She did not know the secret of tbe letter lying iu his pocket- Dawn bad nearly come when the revellers started fur home. The ball was four miles from Russell, where Marrery Jiyed and across the river. They sent the carriage over first, then the ladies gather incr up their duintv dresses the cav crowd started. .No one could ever tell how it happened, but the boat Margery and her party were in turned over. All was wildest con fusion. Margery "felt the cold, dark waters closing over her. She saw one of her young companions grasp Mr. Clare tor support saw that gentleman tear loose the cling ing hands, and start for the bunk, seeking bis own safety then she looked up at the luoou shining above her, and as the water rushed over her, she murmured. "Guy, dear Guy." When consciousness returned she was lying in her own room with the dear home faces bending over her. She looked around be wildered. "I I thought I was iu the river." "So you were, my dear," her fa ther said, "but Guy saved you from drowning." Margery closed her eyes with a little moan. She felt disgusted with herself and all the world when she thought bow near she bad come to marrying tho selfish wretch, who would casta woman buck to drown in order to save his own life. When Mr. Donald Clare called the next afternoon, he didn't meet the eager smiling face he expected to see, bnt a cold, pule gin, who said "no" in the most uncompromising manner. Margery sat down by the win dow after he left and laying Iter head down On the ledge cried about nothing iu particular. by, Margery, what is the mat ter !" It was Guy's pleasant voice, and Guy bad lifted her face, and was looking into her tear-wet eyes. "Oh. Guv ! is it .vou ! How can I ever thank, you for saving my life." "Now, Margery," taking her trembling bands, "pleuso don't. You know I have a horror of being thanked for anything. Now, what were yon crying about!" "I really do not know, nnless it was because I felt 'ifsgusted at uiy own wickedness." "Ah, yes, 1 met Mr. Clare as I came in."

Do you kJiow I saw him push Alice Cars sway last nicht. when she clung to him to keep from sinking in tbe water." "The cowardly wretch !" "And then I was so near death," Margery continued, shuddering, "that 1' could see so clearly all the shame aud sinfulness ot what I intended doing." A loving light was in Guy's handsome eyes. "And you will accept my love, and tbe one room !" "Yes, willingly," blushing, Guy drew the dark head on his breast, aud, bending down, kissed tbe sweet tremulous month.

He was 'continually using all the devices to warm himself that a man might who hud been chilled by exposure to extreme cold, sit ting around rousing fires envelop ed iu blankets und the house close ly shut up, and this though the weather was at summer lieat. It is said that he woritd sit by the fire and hold his head down to it and almost roast it in the effort to warm. It is a fact that he put clothes on his head to protect the sculp from actual burning wheu do ing thus, und the clothes have ac tually becu set on fire by the beat he subjected them to in endeavor ing to warm his head. Some time ago be made a visit to Liviugston in the hope of being benefited by the artesian water, when Dr. Webb of that towu saw his case. Lately ho had determined to return to Livingston and try again tbe waters, and again consulted Dr. Webb, going to his office for that purpose. He seemed as one sutler ing with extreme cold, and asked Dr. Webb it he had any fire in his efface-. He told hi in he did not, and that it was too hot to have tire and bo coin tort able. He said he could not stand it and ran out ot the office into tho street for the benefit of the sunshine to warm himself. The next day Dr. W ebb hud him in his office again to make a more critical examination of his case, and had him a rousing tire. He carefully tested with a ther mometer the degree ot animal neat ho carried and found it near nor mal.

Special to tho Chicago Tribune. Columbus, O., June 15. In an interview with a gentleman well kuown iu railroad circles, who has been traveling all over tho United States iu the interest of railroad men, it is learned, that lull, -and complete organizations of railroad men are now working In union, and thut a strike is liable to break out nuy time which, ho claims, will extend over the whole country. He states that there are thousands of miners out ot employment who are ready to aid the strikers iu securing their demands. In refer ence to the so calli l communistic element, he was of the opinion that they would make no move until the strike was started, when they would come to their assistance. Tlie interview withholds the name of the person referred to, but rail road officials give it as their opin ions that the person is uo other than Jack Cooper, who took an active part and assumed the lead ership iu the railroad strike one year ago. In au Interview with General Muungen Caldwell, of the Pan Handle lines, this evening, in reference to the proposed strike, he said that, so far as he knew, there was nothing to base tbe re port ou. Their men bad looked stern facts in the face, aud were well satisfied with present salaries under the existing depression iu business of all kinds. Death of Wm. Culleu Bryant. New York; June 12.
