OUT OF THE JAWS OF DEATH. Itojnl Hanover siood l»y the window playing with the scarlet curtain tassel, and Dr. Reynolds sat in an easy chair beside the lire, Covertly looking at her. lu varied travels he had seen tew women as beautiful. The round, supple form, the regularly carved and exquisite ly tinted face, the perfect grace and air of high breeding, might have pleased a more fastidious man than he. But something higli and better than admiration soften ed Doctor Reynold’s face as he tinned away with a bolt sigh and | rustled the leaves of his book by the. tire light. Royal deserted the window and came softly toward the tire. “A year from to-day I hope I shall not lie here,” she said. Again Doctor Reynolds looked up at her. His gaze was a mixt ure of tenderness and sorrow. “Do you hope to he linppier, Royal?’’ lie said. “Yes, I hope to be,” she answer ed, knotting the silken cords of her wrapper, in turn, with those restless fingers of hers. Again Doctor Reynolds sigiied. ‘‘If you have anything to say to me, why don’t you say it?” she ex. claimed impatiently, “You know my wish,” lie said quietly. A sudden color flickered in her cheek. She glanced at him shyly, from under her long lashes “1 would regret no money that wonld keep you off the stage, Roy- ( al.” The color died in her beautiful face. “You would pay any price to keep me here iu ennui!” she ex claimed. “Why, I shall eat my own heart in a year more of this lile!” His sorrow fill eyes seemed un bearable to her. “It’s so tame and spiritless, she said; so worse than a thousand cares, with its insanity! I, a wo man, loathe it! How you, a man, can eudure it. I cannot see.” “I am tired,” be answered, sim ply. She paused in her walk. Stand ing near him, and looking down on bis bowed head, she saw very plainly, llie streaks of gray in it. The lire died out of her face. “I am so young!” she said more gently. “Yes,” he answered. “Only twenty.” “Only twenty,” he repealed. She went baek to the window ami stood therein silence. The landscape was gray and wintry, patches of suow on the frozen ground, aud the trees creak ing and rushing in the wind—the great elms ami oaks of Woods more The warm, quiet room was quite still. The coals burned with out a eracklc, her cauary had gone to sleep iu the dust, and Doctor Reynolds was mute aud motion less iu his place. Her impatient thoughts roved away to the city. She saw iu fan cy, lights and glowing colors, and living walls of people. Music gave voice to the sceue. Then her soul seemed lo steal out of her body, and she stood up betore the ad* miring throng, all the slumbering tire and romauce of her uature vi talixing and bringing to life some character of oldeu storv that hail thrilled her in childhood ami was still famous in the memory of men. How the grand words of passion and inspiration rung from her lips! —how complete her success—hoW enthusiastic the plaudit# of the throng. She started suddenly and waked as from a dream as a servant brought in lights and iho evening’* mail. No letters for her; no one ever thought of or cared tor her J now; hut next year— J lr. Reynolds read his letters in silence and then look up the even ing paper. She glanced around; the ipiiet domestic atmosphere was not congenial. 8he turned to leave the room. Doctor Reynolds looked up. “Are you going to your room, Royal?” “Yes. Goodnight.7 “I wish to warn you not to go outside the garden tomorrow, or .in any day until the danger of go ing around is removed. A tiger has ••scaped from the traveling menagerie now in the village, and, so tar, has been hunted without success. He is probably in the woods not far off. Good-night,” and hetnrned to his paper again. Long offer Royal was soundly sleeping lie kept sorrowful vigils. Royal awoke from troubled dreams with a headache. She lif ted herself higher on herpllowand saw a sheet of sunshine on the wall. Site closest hei eyes npon it with a moan of pain. lint gradually the pain abated, though she rose languidly nt nine o’clock and commenced making tier toilet. Itut the soft crimson wrapper was donned, t lie glittering bullous in the snowy cuffs, and the dark hair put up in a loose, shining coil, suddenly off came the cashmere wrapper, and down came tlie loose, shining coil of hair—to lie replaced by an out-of-door drees and snugger braids, surmounted by a little Polish cap of fur. “I must walk myself into a bet ter state ol health; I can’t stand it to he so stupid,” said Royal. She slammed the hall door be hind her aud went down the ave nue. She walked a mile down the road and then turned into the woods, attracted by some brilliant sprays of bitter sweet. She had gathered a haudfull, aud, unconscious how their or ange aud scarlet set off her dark, brilliant face, was turning away, when the crackling in the hushes behind her made her glance hack. A large, strange, tawny animal was gliding toward her. Her itiiar diau’s forgotten warning Hashed, over her. “My God! the tiger!” she mur mured, in freezing horror, below her hreath, Seeing himself observed, the animal paused. With terrified eyes she saw him praparing for a spring. Ghastly pale, one wild, frenzied scream of horror burst from her. At the same moment there came a shock, and she was senseless. The next she knew was hearing her name pronounced in tender] accents of compassion and love. She lay upon the ground, her head pillowed upon her guardian’s breast, and the smoke of a rifie still hung iu the air. She raised herself without speaking, aud saw the great gory brute stretched dead at her feet. 1 “Did you kill him?” she asked, bewildered. “Yes, just iu the act of leaping upon you, Royal, he auswered. The creature was savage from hunger.” For the first time since she was a little child, lie saw her burst in to tears. “Don’t cry,” lie said quietly; the danger is past now, and he took her home. Somehow the crimson library, with its glowing grate, was some thing better than it had been the night before. Rut the gray streaks in Doctor Reynold’s hair showed quite as plainly by day as by twi light, as lie seated himself iu the chair again, with no word of re proof for the danger she had led them both into. Suddenly lie felt two clingiug arms about his neck, aud a grace ful form, with sliiuiug hair and dashing tears, sank ou its kaoos beside him. “1 aui not going away; I am not goiug to leave you,” cried Royal, sobbing. Trembling, he snatched her tu his breast. “Darling, be said, but 1 cannot keep you always.” “As long as you will,” sbe said. “Royal, 1 must tell you,” he said. “I do not love you as a ward only.” “Then I will be your wife,” she whispered. And keep your beauty only to bless an old man, Royal! “I shall be happy,” was liar an swer, playing with the gray streak ed hair. “My heart is not empty any longer. Oh, why could you not see!” she exclaimed, hiding her face on his neck. A ml so crowds never saw Roy al Hanover personate Cordelia and IVdila, and footlights never Hared upon the perishing of her bloom. As “an old man’s darling,” she is more beautiful to day Ilian ever before. JEFFERSON ON PAPER HONEY. “I alii sorry to see our loans be gin at so exorbitant an interest And yet even at that, you will soou tie at the bottom of .the loan-bag. W« are an agricultural nation. Such an one employs its spnriugs in the purchase, or improvement of laud or stocks. The lendable money among them, is chiefly that of orphans and wards, in the hands of executors and guardians, and tlrnt which the farmer lays by till he has enough for the purchase in view. In such a nation there is one and one only, resource for loans, sufficient to carry them through the expenses of a war;and that will always be sufficient, and in the power of an honest govern nient, punctual in the preserva tion oftts faith. The fund I menu, ia the mass of circulating coin. Beery one knows, that although not literally, it ia nearly I rue, that every paper dollar emitted ban. islics a silver one from the circu lation. A nation, therefore, mak ing its purchases and payments with bills tilted lor circulation, thrusts an e«|ual sum of ooiu out of circulation.”—Jeflersou’s works, Vol. VI, 1*. 139. “Iii this way, 1 am not without hope, that this great, this sole re source for loans in an agricultural country, might yet tie recovered for the use of the nntion during war; and, if obtained ill perpetu uiii, it would always he sufficient to carry hs through any war; pro, vided, that in the interval between war anil war, all the outstanding paper should he called in, coin he permitted to How in again, and to It old the Held of circulation until another war should' require its yielding place again to the national medium.”—.1 cfterson’s works, Vol. VI, I’. 141. “Bank paper mwst he suppress ed, and the circulating medium1 must tie restored to the nation to whom it lielnugs. It is the only fund upuu trkuk they ran rely rnu i,o a Ns; it is the only resource which can never fail them, aud it is.hii abundant one for every nec essary purpose. Treasury bills, hottomfd on tares, bearing or not bearing interest, ns may be tonnd necessary, thrown into circulation will take the place of so much gold and silver, which last, when crow ded, will tied art efflux Into other countries, and thus keep the quan tum of medium at its salutary lev el.”—Jeffersons works, v. ti, p. 199. “We are now without any medi um; and necessity, as well as patri otism and confidence will make iis eager to receive treasury notes, if founded on specific tores.”—Jeffer son's works, Vol. YI,P. 382. “Hut Congress could then have issued treasury notes, payable within a fixed period, and founded pit a specific tax, the proceeds of which, ns they come In, should he excliaiigesble for the notes of that particular emission only.’’—Jeffer soii’s works, Vol. VI, I*. 382. “Treasury notes of siiitdl as well as high denomination, bottomed on a lax w liieh would redeem them in leu years, would place at our disposal the whole circulating me dium of the United 8tales: a bind of credit sufficient to carry us through any probable length of war.”—Jefferson’s works, Vol. VI, l*. 419. “Iii both cases, the truth is, that capital may be produced by indus try, mid accumulated by economy; but only propose to create it by legerdemain tricks with pa per. ”-Jeffersou’s works, v. 6, p 24i. “There is indeed a conveiilnee in paper; its eaay transmission from one place to another, llut this may be mainly supplied by hills of Exchange, so as to prevent any great displacement of actusl coiu. Two places trading togeth er balance their dealings, for the most pArt, by their mutual sup plies, and the debtor individuals of either may, instead of cash, re mit the hills of those who are cred itors in the same dealings; or may obtain them through some third place with which both have deal ings. The cases would be rare where such bills could uot be ob tamed either directly or circuit ously, ami too unimportant to the nation to overweigh the train ot evils (lowing from paper circula tion.—Jefferson’s works, v. fi, p‘237. “And it i* lor thi* petty udditioii to tin- capi tal of tin- nation, thit minimum of one dolltir. added to one hundred and thirty threj and a third, or three fourth* js-r eent. Hint we art- to give up our gold and silver medium, it* iiit rini.it* solidity, it* universal Value, and in aaviug'power* in time of war, and t»> sub stitute for it palter, with all it* train of evil*, moral, politieal and phy -ieal, which 1 wit! not pretend to enumerate.'’—Jefferson’* works, Vol. VI. P. 3*1. “The hunkrunteie* in Ltaidoa, have re commenced witn new foree. Tiiere i* no saying wla-re thi* tire will end, perhaps in the general i ontlagratioii of all their paper. If not now, it mutt erelong.

A Tradgedy. These lovers' quarrels are sail, sad affairs, resulting, a9 they so of ten do. in the separating of young hearts and making withered leaves out of all the fond hope and gold en dreams and high aspirations of young lives. A distressing case was made public receutly in New ark, the harrowing details being given in the words of the estrang ed ones, wlto sat in lbs Newark opera house eating caramels anti saying cruel things to each other during the play. She began it. “You did, too,” she said, with a great sob. It wouldn’t have bseu any kind of a lovers’ quarrel with out numerous “great sobs” brought into it. “Now, Bessie,” moaned the ago nised ninety pounds of lover and high collar. “You needn’t deny it,” said Bes sie coldly. j “Bessie, I never in all—” “You did. Mamie Blauk told j me that she saw you.” “Saw me what?” “Saw you ttirliug with that hor rid Hattie Marsh.” “Hattie Marshf Bah. Now, Bessie, you know perfectly well that I don’t care a simp of my Hu ger for Hattie Marsh.” “No; it looks as if yoq, didn’t— flirting with her every lime she crosses your path.” “Now, Bessie, you know j«st as well us—” “Oil,yes, I know all about it, Mr. Lonnie Marshall.” “Now, llesaie, don’t talk that way.” “1 will too.” “ Bessie.” ‘•I don’t care, lion; it isn’t right, and I’m not going to play second fiddle to anybody.'* •‘Nobody wants you to, dearie.” “No! It looks as if they didn’t, I must say.” “Well, now, Bessie, what if I go mad and said cruel things be cause you flirted a little with Ben die Dean or—” “Ben Dean! I wouldn’t wipe my feet on Ben Dean.” “You used to like him.” “Lon Marshall, I’ll never speak to you again as long as I live aud breathe if you ever mention that horrid affair again, 1 hale Ben Dean.” “I know it, darling, and 1 detest Hattie Marsh.” “Yes, you do.” “Indeed, I do.” “Yes, over your left shoulder ” ‘•Now, Bessie.” “If yon want your ring hack again, Lon Marshall, all you’ve got to do is to lay so.” “O, Bessie!” “I mean just exactly what 1 say, sir, every word of it.” “Bessie, Bessie!” “I can manage to live without yon, Lon Marshall! And if you think I’m one of the ‘Rough on Rats’ kind of girls you’re badly left, that’s all.” “Now, Bessie, you know 1 nev— “If you were a gentleman sir—” “Bessie, this is too much.” “If you don’t like it yon can lump it, sir! I’ll let you know that you can’t twist me around your Huger. I)o you want your ring?” “You know I don’t, Bessie.” “Well you csuld have it mighty quick if you did.” At last the worm turps, aud says acridly: “Very well, Miss Wbitford, just as you please about it.” “Why, lam.” “I have done all that a gentle man could do to—” Now, Lon, I waa only joking.” “It is no joking matter, wiieie one’s affections are couoerued. I’ve tried to be a gentleman of my word with you, but—” “O Lon, hush.” . “No, Bessie, we had better un deraland each other right here- If we quarrel so now, what would it be when—” “Oh, Lonnie, I was only—” “You were wounding me cruelly, Bessie, aud I—” “O Lonnie!” “II you really desire everything to come to an end between us, I am too iiiucli of a gentleman lo ” Vuni! Yum! The curtain dropped at this juncture while those who saw this frightful scene were waiting with bated breath for the final word that would separate Lonnie nod Bessie forever An Expensive Organization. Meeting an ex member of the order of Knight* of Labor on (he street last week, the Democrat re porter said to him: Yon have belonged to the Knights of tabor, you say, what is the cost annually for membership in the order? Well in the tint place, the initia tion fee is 42.OU. The monlhly duea lOcents. which would make 41.00 per annum. The ussessmets are trom 25 cents to 75 cents pet moiinth on every member, which would make from 43-00 to i'.HH) per annum. The ‘assistance fund' is 20 cents per month until! the fund reaches 4100, then it is re duced to 10 ceuts, which amounts 41.20 to 42.40 per annum. The special lax is about 0 ceuts per quarter for each member. Now, the membership in this country is put dowu at 000, and if correct, at the end of a year they will tie out of pocket about 45.000. In llie gtate there are 12,000 members, so it is claimed, this number would make the anuual cost amount to the princely sum of 4010,000. What goes with all this money? Part ol it goes to pay salaries of officers, ami a part to pay delegates to the Slate and national assembles. Delegates to the State assembly are allowed three dollars per day and their expenses. This assembly meets twice a y ear, and holds eight or tea day s. The delegates to gen eral assembly get four dollars a day for about two weeks, nod e.\|>enae* to Philadelphia or some oilier dis tant point. Public speakers are nllowed from ten in one hundred dollars per speech. Master Work man Powderly gets 45,(HH) per year for his services. The balance ol the money goes somewhere, b it don't know where. — Russellville Democrat. Road Law.
