fhe Weak and the Impure.
The merry little mountain brook,
as it lightly dances over the rocks
and sparkles in the sunshine on its
way down to the river, is pure and
clean. It is active; therefore, it is
healthy. It is vigorous; therefore,
it resists impurity.
But the sluggish pool, where the
current is not strong enough . to
keep the water in motion, is stag
nant and foul. Dirt and rubbish
are thrown into it, and stay there.
Impurities and vile odors make it
a breeder of disease and an object
to be avoided.
When the blood is strong and rich
and red, and vigorously courses its
accustomed rounds through arte
ries and veins, the system is hearty
When the blood is thin and poor
and weak, impurities and defile
ments creep into it, and it has no
strength to cast them out. Then
the system runs down.
Brown's Iron Bitters contains the
only preparation of :"-on which can
ennch the blood, and make it nitre,
vigorous, and healthy. A dollar a

BERTHA DALTOI'S TRIUMPH,
THE HISTORY QF AN OPAL RING.
Mrs. Dalton had been expecting Sir
Stephen and Lady Langley to call, but
It caused ber no surprise when Sir
Stephen appeared by himself. Nor did
Sir Stephen's grave face and serious
manner alarm ber. She was quite
aware that her future son-in-law was
no greater favorite with the Langleys
than with Lord Alphington, and that it
was with an ill grace Sir Stephen was
prepared to act the -parental part and
give Lena away.
Mrs. Dalton sat in her usual seat, Sir
Stephen placing himself opposite to
her. Sir Stephen, for once in bis life,
felt somewhat embarrassed.
"I am afraid," he began, "that what
I have come to tell you will cause great
distress; but it must be told. I wish,
my dear madam, I could now feel as
sured that Madeliua's affections are not
set on this marriage; yet only yester
day, when we came up to town, I d have
given a good deal to know that they
"What has happened, Sir Stephen?"
cried the poor lady, thoroughly fright
ened. " What is it you are going to tell
me? Surely not that Lord Alphington
has withdrawn his consent? Or has
Mr. Fancourt no, he would not think
of breaking off he is so very much in
love with Lena."
Mrs. Dalton's voice began to iuiver.
Sir Stephen really pitied her, though
he had never felt any great respect tor
his friend's widow.
"If the engagement bas to be broken,
it is bv no act of Lord Alphington's, I
assure you, Mrs. Dalton. I asked the
question about the real state of Lena's
affections because it will be well if the
separation from her betrothed, which
has now become necessary, will not be
so great a grief to her as might have
"Separation-necessary!" gasped Mrs.
Dalton. "What can you mean, Sir
"The man who called himself Fan
court bus proved an impostor," Sit
S..')lien replied. "He isnotLord Alph
iutrt en's grandson!"
Mrs. Dalton gave a little shriek.
"Do you mean to say that Mr. Fan
court is not Mr. Fancourt?" she ex
claimed. "Oh, the villain, to come here
ami propose to my ioor Lena! And
now oli, what shall wc do? And the
vtM V weddiwr-breakfast ordered!"
"You know how trulv sorrv Ladv
L;in rley and t were that this engage-'
tneul should have taken place," said bir
Stephen; "and now certainly poor Lena
is placed in a most paiufiil position.
Bat I hope, when you know all, you will
at least l'eel thankful that matters have
gone no further. The real name of this
scoundrel is Sedley, and he is a married
man." . ..
Again Mrs. Dalton shrieked. 1
"It is dreadful dreadful!" she cried.
"Oh, my poor, precious Lena it will
be enough to kill her! I think it will
Mrs. Dalton became more and more
distressed as she bad time to take it all
in. Her tears became uncontrollable.
All the brilliant prospects in which she
had indulged faded away. What could
she say to her friends? What would
become of Lena? It was Indeed too bard
"You are acquainted with the young
man who is the real Mr. Fancourt"
said Sir Stephen, striving to turn his
companion's mind from the contempla
tion of her woes.
Mrs. Dalton made no reply. 8he
took no interest; she was too much
"You have hitherto known him under
the name of St. Lawrence," Sir Stephen
LKrenc.er' exclaimed the poor
l&.with Jeturn animation, her
cheeks flushing. "Then everybody is
turning out to be somebody else! How
SteXn?" ? Afe yU Bure 8ir
"Yes, we are sure this time," Sir
Stephen answered, surprised by the
sudden change in her manner.
"Well,I always liked Mr. 8t. Law
rence; 1 alwavs said there wm aome
thing distinguished about him. Per
haps things may not be so very bad af
ter aU," she went on. drying her eyes as
a bright idea struck her.
A sort of grim smile passed across
Sir Stephen's face. "The woman is a
fool," he said to himself. Mrs. Dalton
became confidential, thinking the smile
was caused by an idea answering to that
in her own mind.
"I don't mind telling you, Sir Steph
en, being such an old friend of the
family," she said, smoothing the folds
of her dress, "but I am quite sure that
Mr. St. Lawrence admires Lena. He
would not own to it when I spoke to
him vou see I thought it only kind to
warn him but then of course he could
not propose. Now it will he quite dif
ferent, and the troiuwdn all ready and
Sir Stephen thought to himself that
in the course of his life he had met with
some as worldlv as Mrs. Dalton. but
with none so silly. Her utter foolish
ness disarmed him; it seemed scarcely
necessary to reply seriously to her ar
gument, and yet he could not quite let
"I know nothing of Mr. St. Law
rence's sentiments,'' he said. "I can
well understand that in Lena's case the
fiosition was a greater attraction than
he man Sedley, and it is well, as she
will suffer less; but that she will allow
herself to be transferred like a shuttle
cock in that way I should be sorry to
believe of any woman."
"But there was no affection," Mrs.
Dalton said, "so there couldn't be any
to transfer. And don't you see it would
be such a good arrangeiuent-everything
could go on just as if nothing had hap
pened." "Make such an arrangement then, by
all means," Sir Stephen returned, rising
from his seat, now really angry; "if
such is to be the termination of the
case, any commiseration or svmpathy I
may have been inclined to feel would
be quite misplaced. Marry Lena to the
present Mr. Fancourt if you wish, but
don't ask me to give her away. I wash
my hands of the affair altogether. I
wish you v d morning. Give my love
to little L -v.tia, and under the circum
stances the sooner vou let her come to
the Larelu'S the better."
So saying the old sailor departed in a
fume, leaving Mrs. Dalton utterly dis
concerted. There was everything up
set for L-iia. and Sir Stephen Langley
was dispit used she could not tell why
and perhaps Lord Alphington would
be displeased too as if she had been in
fault in any way! Sir Stephen had said
that the man calling himself Fancourt
was an impostor and a bad man. and he
had been from the first opposed to the
marriage, and yet now he was angry
because Lena had not loved him; it was
too unreasonable, Mrs. Dalton argued
with herself. Lena was to have mar
ried Lord Alphingtoif s grandson, and,
if the grandson turned out to be a
nicer person than they expected, it was
surely all the better for Lena.
Arrived at the station, Eliza led her
two companions for some little distance
along the high-road, and then along a
less frequented road, and finally down
a lane bordered on each side by high
hedgerows and tall elms.
They soon reached the cottage, and
Eliza, opening the gate, led the way up
the path strewed with the leaves of the
Virginia creeper that still lent a crim
son glow to the walls. The dining
room window stood open a policeman
sat within, smoking.
' Lena went first, and Bertha followed,
her knees shaking under her. They
were ushered iuto the room above the
parlor, a comfortable-looking woman
in clean white can and apron stood be
side the bed on which the invalid lay.
Twenty-four hours of illness of body
and anguish of mind had made sad
havoc with Julie Lemont. Her cheeks,
now divested of rouge, had fallen in,
her eyes looked large and hollow, ber
lips were parched and drawn. A look
of recognition came into her face as
"Ah," she said, in a feeble voice,
speaking with difficulty, "we have met
before. Do you not remember?"
If it had not been that she had heard
the woman's name, and but for her as
sociations with the ring, Bertha would
have failed to recognize in the death
like object before her the handsome,
showy woman she had seen in West
bourne Grove; but, with this clew, she
knew it must be the saipe.
"Yes, I remember. I am sorry to see
you so ill," she said, kindly.
"You are Madelina Dalton," Raid
Mrs. Lemont, turning her hollow eyes
from Bertha to Lena. "Come close that
I may look at you."
Lena obeyed, not a little alarmed at
the woman's strange tone, when she
bad expected supplications and apolo
gies. The sick woman raised herself
with an effort, and, taking Lena by the
wrist, she gazed into her face with ear
"So," said she, "this is the fair face
that has had power to turn my hus
band's love from me, and to make an
assassin of him?"
Lena, turning pale, extricated herself
from Julie's grasp and started back.
"She is mad!" she cried, with an ap
pealing look to Bertha who stood ap
palled by the words she had heard.
"No, I am not mad," said Mrs. Le
mont. "Lay your hand on my brow it
is cold. Feel my pulse it beats low
very low. I am not mail. The words I
speak are truth. The man you would
have married to-morrow is my husband.
I sent for you to tell you this." She
spoke with v cnderful calmness, she had
exhausted ail her rage and passion, and
now, as she said, her pulse beat very
Lena turned white; she staggered,
and sunk into a chair beside the bed.
"Good Heaven!" she cried, "am I to
' "Yes, you must believe It, and more,"
Mrs. Lemont resumed. "Do you see
these pallid and shrunken cheeks, these
attenuated hands? A few days ago I
was well and strong as you. He thought
I should be dead before to-morrow
came and I should have been but for
"Are you spaking of Mr. Fancourt?"
Bertha asked, drawing nearer.
"I am speaking of Eustace Sedley
of whom you know as Mr. Fancourt,"
Mrs. Lemont answered. "I tell you he
has poisoned me me, his wife in or
der to marry her!" She pointed to
Lena as she spoke.
At last the full meaning of the dis
closure that had been made penetrated
to Lena's understanding. With a
shriek Bhe covered her face with her
hands, cowering as she sat. Hearing
the cry, the nurse made her appearauce
at the door.
"Go," said Mrs. Lemont, waving her
hand toward her; "you are uot wanted."
MWhat do you mpnn when you say
'him whom we have knowu as Mr. Fan
court?'" asked Bertha, trembling in
Mrs. Lemont gasped for breath.
"Oil, for strength for a while," she
cried "strength to tell all! Give me a
spoonful." she said, pointing to a med
icine bottle that stood ou the table be
Bertha poured a spoonful into a glass
and held it while the unfortunate wom
an drank. She then moistened a hand
kerchief with eati-de-Cologue that also
stood near, and passed it over her fore
head. Mrs. Lemont looked at her;
tears rose to her eyes.
"You are good and kind," she said;
"but I am a wicked woman, not fit for
you to touch."
"I know nothing about that," Bertha
rejoined, gently. "If you have been
wicked, I can only pity you the more."
Mrs. Lemont sighed. Perhaps in that
sigh of contrition a plea for mercy went
up on high. She turned her head to
"Did she love him very much?" she
Bertha hesitated to renlv. but Lena.
hearing the question, sprang up, her
eyes nasnmg, ner rrame quivering, all
the distaste, the repugnance she had
felt toward the man she had promised
to marry overflowing.
"Love him!" she cried. "I never
loved him! I hate him! The wretch
"Then you are a worse woman than
I," she said, addressing Lena. "You
would have married Sedley because you
believed him heir to art earldom; when
I married him, I loved him, and I have
followed him through want and crime.
Oh, merciful Heaven, through what
scenes have I lived! And now I am dy
ingdying by his hand!" A gasping
sob interrupted her; she clutched wild
ly at the air, and fell back on the pillow,
a more deadly pallor spreading over
cheeks and lips.
Bertha sprang to the table and rang
the hand-bell; Lena rushed from the
room as the nurse entered.
"Is she dead?" Bertha asked, anx
iously. "Sue's swooned away again,-miss,"
the woman answered. "You'd best go
down. She'll not be fit to speak again
"Can I help?" inquired Bertha.
"No, miss, I can do, thank you all
the same," the nurse replied. "She'll
be better with only me when she comes
Her aid thus rejected, Bertha left the
room and went down-stairs to seek her
sister. She found her crouched on the
ground, her bead bowed down on her
arms, which leaned on the couch; hys
terical sobs shook her frame. Ber
tha sat down beside her, and, throwing
her arms round her, tried to raise her.
Lena yielded to her sister's gentle
force, and after a time the passion of
tears spent itself, and she strove to re
cover calmness, influenced by Bertha's
arguments and entreaties.
"Do you think it is true?" she said,
lifting her wan face, her eyes seeking
Bertha's, as if she would have read
there a refutation of the terrible story.
"Yes, I see vou believe it. The hus
band of another a would-be murderer
his lips have touched mine!"
She shuddered, aud let her head fall
on her sister's shoulder as she sat, Ber
tha half supporting her.
"It is very dreadful," said Bertha.
"But, Lena dear, are you not thankful?
This discovery might not have been
made till after to-morrow."
"To-morrow!" repeated Lena, shud
dering. "To-morrow I thought all my
dreams of greatness were to have been
fulfilled, and now I shall he only a
laughing-stock a something to be
Eointed at. Oh. Bertha, how shall I
ear it? How can I go home aud face
"Try to compose yourself," Bertha re
plied, in as quiet a voice as she could
command; "we have to get home. We"
had better go there Is nothing to bo
garned by staying here."
"Nothing! Lena sobbed. "Nothing
by staying or going! Nothing more for
nie in this world nothing!"
"Hush!" said Bertha. "I hear some
It was the nurse. She opened the
door softly. Bertha went to her.
"Eliza is up-stairs." she said, "and I
thought you would like to know that
Mrs. Lemont has come to herself again.
I have just given her a composing
"Thanks. I should not have left the
house without inquiring," Bertha re
turned. "Does the doctor give any
hope that she will recover?"
"He thinks she may, if she can be
kept quiet," said the woman; "but it I
difficult to keep a patient quiet that has
got so much on her mind. She went on
so dreadful about seeing Miss Dalton
that we thought it better to let her have
her way. The poor, dear vnung lady
seems upset." she continued", looking at
Lena; "would she like a little sal-volatile,
"No, thank you," Bertha replied.
"My Bister found the interview trying,
but we are going home now directly."
"Yes, we are going," said Lena, who
by a desperate struggle had succeeded
in subduing the outward signs of the
tempest within. "Come, Bertha."
On the day previous to the visit of
Lena and Bertha to Mrs. Lemont, St.
Lawrence received a note from Mr.
Riggs soon after Lord Alphington left
him, which in some degree lightened
his anxiety. It assured him that all
would be divulged in time to stop the
marriage, so that a premature disclos
ure would be unnecessary.
Time however went on, and as the
hours passed St. Lawrence's anxiety
returned in full force. At last, between
ten and eleven o'clock, a violent ring
came at the house-bell, and Mr. Riggs,
almost tumbling up-stairs in his hurry,
rushed into the room.
"It s all right," he exlalmed. "We've
"Youhave?"St. Lawrence exclaimed,
starting up. "You are sure? I don't
think I could bear suspense now," he
added, with a great gasp.
Mr. Biggs took off his hat and pol
ished his head.
"Egad," he cried, "what a relief it is
to get quit of that confounded wigl
Sure?" he went on. "I tell you we've
nailed him! The capture was splendid
ly made! By George, sir, it has been
one of the finest pieces of business I
was ever engaged in. Give me some
thing to drink your health, Mr. Fan
court, and then I am off again."
St. Lawrence brought out a bottle
from the chiffonier, and mixed a Btilt
glass of spirits and water. Mr. Biggs
thank it standing.
"Your health, sir," he said, "and
many long and happy days!" and before
St. Lawrence had time to reply the de
tective was off again.
"Thank Heaven!" exclaimed St. Law
About three o'clock in the afternoon
St. Lawrence received a message from
Lord Alphington, desiring his immedi
ate presence in Magnus Square; and
then, at last, he felt himself quite se
Lord Alphington received him in the
library, where hung the portrait of
Eustace Fancourt, his father. When
the door closed upon him, Lord Alph
ington came eagorly forward, but, un
able to speak, he passed his arm around
his grandson's neck and wept. Eus
tace was scarcely less affected he
clasped the old man's hand.
"God bless you, my dear boy!" fal
tered the Earl, while, raising his head,
he placed his hand on the young man's
shoulder, and held him at ami's length.
"Yes, the likeness is even greater than
I thought at first." he said. "But there
is more of strength in the face, more of
self-reliance. A happier future lies be
fore you, I hope him trust. Sit down,
Eustace we have mucli to talk over to
gether." A long colloquy then followed, deep
ly interesting to them both. In answer
to Lord Alphington's question as to
why the proofs had not been brought
forward sooner, Eustace said he could
give no positive information he had
never been taken into his mother's con
fidenceand that, from some hints that
had been dropped chiefly, he confess
ed, by his cousin Sedley he had been
afraid to attempt to prove the question
of his legitimacy.
"1 think now that probablv my moth
er felt sore that her husband's relatives
never acknowledged her, having no idea
he had kept his marriage secret," he
said. "She was a woman who held
strongly to any prejudice she had once
formed, and she was a stanch Republi
can. 1 can suppose she dreaded I might
be taken from her by my English rela
tives, and brought up in a different
sphere than her own. No doubt with a
view to the future, however, she was
always desirous I should obtain the ut
most culture; and, after I left college,
she sent mo to travel for some years in
Europe. I returned to America when
I was warned that her health was fail
ing; and she died a few davs after ray
arrival. When she felt the" end draw
ing near, she told me for the first time
.about my father's family, and placed
the box containing the proofs in my
hands, charging me not to open it till I
reached England, and then to bring
the contents at once to you. How I
was robbed on the way during a severe
attack of illness you already know.
Lemont was assiduous iu his attendance
upon me. I took it for kind-heartedness
then, and was glad to reward him
as far as lay in my power, but it seems
now he had auother motive."
"Did you know this Lemont at all?"
Lord Alphington asked.
"Xo; I had never seen him till we met
on board nor did I hear his name, as
in the ship he was called Pierre: but
when Bertha Dalton described him, I
recognized the man at once," Eustace
From the past they drifted into talk
ing of future plans, and Eustace, not
wishing to have auy secrets from his
grandfather, told him of his engage
ment to Bertha Dalton.
"I guessed as much," said Lord Alph
ington, smiling. "You have my full
consent and approbation. She is a
charming girl the one I certainly pre
fer, in stuta of her sister's beauty.
Poor Madelina!" the Earl continued,
his voice taking a serious tone. "She
must by this time bo aware of her dis
appointment; Sir Stephen Langley bas
fone to break the news to Mrs. Dalton.
'he shock will be great."
"Yes, poor girl!" St. Lawrence was
going to add that she would be suf
ficiently punis'ieJ, but checked himself.
Little love as he bad for L"iia, he had
no wish to throw stones at the fallen,

What Can Be Pone at a fioap
As about fortv Ernests were exnected.
forty pipes were decorated, each with a
ribbon bow nnd streamers five nines
with one color, aud five with another,
and so on till eiht colors were appor
tioned. Besides these decorations,
there were fortv rosettes, five of a
color, which wore distributed among
tne guests ry a little girl.
The girl then called out tho color,
and the live blowers who wore it took
their places around tho bowl. She
next named a color for umpires, and
they also took their pluces at the right
ana left of the circle, where each could
see plainly. It was the aim of each
blower to make the largest bubble.
Each was allowed five minutes nt first
to practice, but had tho privilege of
devoting all of hU time to out) bubble.
But when one of their umpire called
"Time!" all were obliged to go on
with the one they begun. Some by
blowing too hard exploded their bub
bles, but could not begin another after
tho word "Time" had been spoken.
Others were so careful that their bub
bles wero small. The umpires, of
course, awarded the prize to the one
making tho large.-t bubble that ex

chief prize was announced; and the
fortunate winners of tho minor prizes
one from each group surrounded the
bowl ami prepared for the contest.
Great interest was felt In the trial.
Among so niauy of the best blowers,
the rivalry was very close, but, after a
merry struggle, the champion was at
Inst decided upon, and was made the
happy recipient of the grand prize,
which was delivered to him with a
Between tho dances, sonn quiet con
tests wore tried by a few players, to
see which could make a bubble, that
would outlast tho others, using their

could touch tho ceiling first witli a
bubble, under the samo regulations as
before. But thu bubblo must remain
unbroken; nono would count which

London will soon rival New York in
the number and maguifioenee of its ho

caravanserai, not inferior in sizj and
luxuriousuess to the largest of the
American establishments, w as opened.
Where all the quests are to come from

membered that in this metropolis there
aro slumbering every night fifty thous
and sojourners who wero not here
twenty-t'our hours hence. Tho popula
tion of a largo town is daily poured in
to this city and hag to find lodgiujr for
itself somewhere. But the Ki-st X ven

supposed that ninny people, tired of
housekeeping, with all its atteudant
troubles, will take up their abode pt

established in America, has a 1 ready

British hotel-keeper and sotue of his
charges especially iu the nianuor of

do not expect to pay the entire ex

which is "consumed on the premises."
