And, as that picture came up to con- the proud, elegant Mrs. bowed her head on her hands like a child. Hfehe laid her tinsel's on the let- tors with a nervous, tiniid glance around the room, for the lady's heart whispered that she was doing wrong— that now she had no right to read them: and It was better to lay them in tin? grate yonder, where the lire was leap ing up to fold them in its long, red arms. "There can't be any harm ill reading them over." she whispered, for her con science needed a narcotic; "it is so long ago. and we shall never meet again." So Mrs. Fleming opened the letters and read them. 1 cannot tell how they wrung her heart, particularly the last one, with its wild, frantic reproaches, and the love and the suffering so ap parent through all. "1 was not so much to blame as you thought me. Harry," she murmured, as she laid the letter In her lap. "i lur prop erty was all melting away, and they told me that you had grown cold and worldly, and 1 thought I must, too. If the letter had only come the week lie fore, 1 should not have l>een —what I am now." And then she looked around that ele gant chandler, and thought what she was now a wife, bought and sold and paid for, in gold and lands and earthly grandeur. How the thought burned and festered in her proud soul as she sat there! A wife, loved by her husband as he loved his horses, his dogs, and his houses; loved, but only liecause her beauty and her grace were the crown ing glory, the chiefest ornament, of that magnificent home which was ids soul's delight. The lady looked around her luxurious chamber that morning with a sinking heart. The marble wash stands, the damask curtains, the handsome car pets, looking like a world of Damascus roses, scattered over a lied of snow, were worthy the wife of a millionaire. And yet the mistress of all tills wealth, sitting in her chamber, mur mured to herself. "I wish lie had never found me in the old red brick house where I was so happy! 1 wish 1 stood this very morning in the kitchen of the little cottage we were to have, and that, in a plain cotton dress, I was pre paring your dinner, my Harry!" "I'lease, ma'am," and the entrance of her maid was a harsh interruption to the lady's monolgue; "Mr. Fleming lias just sent home the new drab and pink satin for tlie party next Tuesday night." Ah me! those old letters! If she had never read them! That party!—if she had never gone to It! "You have not forgotten me. Laura! I read it in your blue eyes to-night." llarry Atwood's voice had lost none of it.s old depth, as he leaned down his handsome head to Mrs. Fleming's as they stood together in an alcove of the conservatory. Most of the company had left, for it was late, and they were quite secure from observation. Mr. Fleming was not a Jealous husband, and he was quite content that others should admire his wife, so that he possessed her. It was understood that Mr. Atwood and Mrs. Fleming were old friends, so they had nothing to fear from a pro longed tete-a-tete. They had suddenly, unexepeetedly, met at the party, and the heart of either was not changed. Harry Atwood had become a success ful lawyer now, and tile world honor ed him. He had forgiven Laura long ago, for he had heard she was more "sinned against than sinning." "Harry—Mr. Atwood, 1 mean —I am very glad to meet you and find you looking so well." The lady's voice was courteous and calm; but her fingers trembled as they played with the carved points of her ivory fan. "Call me Harry, Laura, for the sake of old times," said he. "and look up to me once, and say you have not forgot ten them. Oh, Laura. 1 have thought how the bright star of this evening's festival once rose over my heart, and then went down for ever. We cannot stay here much longer. Will you not grant mean interview to-morrow night —a private one—in your own house'/" "I cannot, Harry," she replied; "do not ask- me. 1 am the wife of another now." "And what harm could there be In our walking together for half an hour in your garden?" said Harry. "Your husband would not object to tills, for I have watched the man narrowly to night, and know him well. You could not refuse so simple a request to the veriest acquaintance. We have had many walks together, Laura, down by the old mill and past the meadow pond. Will you refuse me one now'/" lie looked down on the fair face, and lie saw that tears were on it. ami lie knew what the answer would lie before It was given. "Vou may come, Harry," she said. ******* That walk in file dim moonlight upon Mr. Fleming's beautiful grounds was followed by many another, for the first steps in the forbidden way are usually pleasant ones. I'oor Mrs. Fleming! She meant no wrong; and then she loved Harry, al though she tried to conceal this from him; but wheiK he talked of the past, in those low, tender tones of his, her tears would come; she,could not help It. One evening—it must have been more than a week after their first meeting— Harry told Mrs. Fleming that his heart was unchanged; that the old love still lived there— a sweet hut mourning memory. "Oh, Harry! don't, don't! You forget; I am his wife!" murmured the young creature, as she bowed her pale face on her bands. Then the lawyer drew Ids arm around her waist, just as he had done in the days that were gone, and said, "You belonged to me lirst, Laura! Our souls were married before you ever took that false oath at the altar!" He whispered to her of a flight to softer skies- of a homo fairer than the one tliey hail dreamed of in their youth - of a life that should lie one loan poem of love. That time she tied from him with a wild shriek of fear and horror. They did not meet again for many nights. If during that time she had only remembered the prayer of her ehlld hooil, "Lead us not in<U> temptation!" Hut she was so young: and then that affection was the one blossom her life had cherished in the midst of its ster ile grandeur. One night she was standing on the steps of her mansion, for she had just taken leave of some guests, when Mar ry Atwood suddenly sprang liefore her. I do not know what was said by eith er party, hut there were frantic ges tures and wild appeals on one side, and a little later Mrs. Fleming was walking among her garden shadows with Har ry Atwood. This was repeated for several even ings, until one midnight a cloned car riage rolled hastily away from the pri vate entrance of Mr. Fleming's grounds. The next (lay his wife was gone! What an electrical thrill it sent through the fashionable world for her beauty and her rank had made Mrs. Fleming Its especial idol. She knew little of the censure and scorn that were heaped on her head in the quiet of that Italian home to which she was borne by the man who loved her only too well. The world said Mrs. Fleming was happy there, but It was false. No woman can ever be liappy who makes memory a remorse and love a crime. Hut, dear me, how I used to smile when everybody made a parenthesis of pity in their anathemas on Mrs. Flem ing—"Her poor husband and parents! My heart aches for them." And, sitting very quiet and listening, 1 thought, al ways, "Well, the one bought and the others sold her; and so they had their reward." —Saturday 10veiling Post. BICYCLES AND SAVINGS. How Hank Deposits Have Reen Affected l, v the I'llriliase of Wheels, I met the president of a prosperous savings bank in one of the minor cities of the Middle West on a railroad train yesterday, and we fell to talking about the ever-increasing itopularlfy of the bicycle. "Every one understands, of course," lie said, "that the use of the wheel has come to be well nigh universal, and Unit millions on the hack of millions of dollars must be invested in the silent steeds, but you call hardly realize to what an extent they are used unless you are placed in a position somewhat like mine, in a small town, like the one in which 1 live, the savings bank men may easily become personally ac quainted with practically every depos itor. and I make it a point to take full advantage of that circumstance. Con sequently I am often advised concern ing tin? linancial affairs of our deposit ors. which, though intrinsically small, are of vast Importance to them. This makes'it all right for me to question depositors now and then about their savings. "Early lust spring I noticed that n number of mechanics who had long Ihh'll In the habit of making regular de posits and who I supposed had steady employment became decidedly irregu lar in their visits to he bank. Others stopped depositing altogether, and still others, who continued to deposit regu larly, put in less each time than for merly. Naturally, 1 began to make in quiries. and more than three-quartern of those 1 spoke to confessed tiint their surplus money was being used to meet installment payments on bicycles, in stead of finding its way to the savings banks. 1 suppose our bank's deposits must have fallen off some thousands of dollars from this eouse, though I haven't taken the trouble to make a careful estimate. In the whole coun try installment payments for bicycles must have decreased the total savings banks' receipts by very large amounts, though, of course, there have probably been compensator'- deposits from work men In bicycle Kiops In towns where such establishments ar<> located."—De troit Correspondence of the Boston Commercial. Iminigr (tion from ICuro-ie. That we live in an age of wonder Is proved by the bare statement of figures with regard to the Immigration from Europe to this country during the pres ent century. Statistics previous to 1820 were not kept, but it is estimated that between ITS'.) and the last named year the immigration from Europe to the United States did not exceed 250,- 000. In 1820 the Government began a systematic collection of data with re gard to Immigration, and from that time to the close of 181)0 17,544,(i! 12 peo ple came from Euroi>e and were wel comed on our shores. These figures do not include tlx- Immigration to British America, to Mexico, Central or South America, but solely to the United States. The smallest number of immi grants during recent years was 177,820 in 18711, the largest (123,084 in 1802; in lsoii the immigration was .'143,207. No such movement of population has ever been known in history. The migration of the German nations over the terri tory of the Roman empire did not com prise more than 4,imi0,000 of [»eople and covered 400 years: the exodus of the Jews from Egypt was with 000,000 able-bodied men, or counting five to each family, alxiut 3,000,000 of people.

There has been received at the Mary la ml Academy of Sciences the skele ton of an Indian seven feet tall. It was discovered near Antietam ten days ago. There are now skeletons of three pow erful Indians at the academy, who at one time in their wildness roamed over the State of Maryland armed with such instruments as nature gave them, or their limited skill taught them to make, Two of these skeletons belonged to in dividuals evidently of gigantic size. The vertebrae and bones of the legs are nearly as thick as those of a horse, and the length of the long bones exception al. The skulls are of line proportions, ample, and with walls of moderate thickness, but of great strength, and stiffened behind by a powerful occipi tal ridge. The curves of the forehead are moderate and not retreating, sug gesting intelligence, and connected with jaws of moderate development. The locality from which these skele tons came is In Frederick County, near Antietam Creek. It was formerly sup posed to have been the battleground of two tribes of Indians, the Catawbas ami the Helawares. Tradition has handed down the statement that be tween the years IT.'iO and 17'W the Ca tawbas overtook a band of I>elawares at the mouth of tin* Antietam, and in the battle that ensued the I>elawares were completely annihilated. So the tradition goes, but according to Dr. Philip It. Ciller, president of the Mary land Academy of Sciences and provost of the IVabody Institute, a careful ex amination of this locality has failed to establish evidences of a battle at that point, although numerous spear and arrow heads have been taken from the Soil there. It Is <>1' great Interest, however, to no tice that the locality was, at an earlier late—before the coming of the white man—occupied as a village site by In dians of great stature, some of them six and a half to seven feet In height. The bones of these were buried like those l>f prehistoric tribes In other parts of the State. The manner of burial was i'ke this: The tlesh was cleaned from the hones, some of which were then charred. The small ltones of the face and neck were packed with clay. In the grave was also placed pottery, a tomahawk and the other weapons l>e longltig to the Indians. No stone mark ed the grave, and no beads or wampum were buried with the skeleton. But over all the earth was heaped up Into (i small oblong mound, along which other similar mounds extended for many feet. The overflow of a neigh boring river at this ixrint had almost destroyed the burial area, so that only Jhree of these small elevations were recognizable at the time of excavation. —Baltimore American.
