Mr* . 1 ZXJ3xh i: L r u -Wilder in whicago Inter Ocean. AN INTERESTING * LOAN 0 (Original.! Mine Bayard waa stuylng at bar Mat's cottage at Newport. Mlae Bey ard waa rich; bar aunt waa rich. 1 waa rich inyaatf or I would not hava Waa tad time courting Mtaa Bayard. Poor (young) people think that whan there la plenty of money In a family the aoua nud daughter* can afford to ■tarry for lova. !t'a done exactly the Other way. The poor moat marry the poor, for wa rich people have no matri monial une fur them. 1 received a note from Mies Beyard •nyiug that she had something to tell ttie which ahe couldn't very well write. Considering that there waa a courtship on between us. thla waa unite enough, anti there waa no use lu my going. It meant that I might look elsewhere for a wife. I wrote her to that effect, then tore up my letter. After all, I would prefer to receive my formal dlamlsaal from her Him. I waa curious to know If her heart wits going with her band. 1 took the evening bimt for Newport and called the next afternoou. ''Who te he!" 1 asked. "Who ha* told you? No one hut Aunt Ailellue ami I amt he knows any thing ulimit It. It Ims tieeu somewhat sudden. " ''I guessed It from your note." "H >w bright of you! He la Lord Blngletou." I waa antonlahed. Hlugkuon htul tieeu our aoma mouth*. lie had brought totters to me. and I had put him under obligations. Ha knew nothing of my wlahtm with regard to Miss Beyard. He waa one of the British aristocracy who had come over to America for a rich marriage. The reason for my astonishment was that Mlaa Beyard la a superior girt sad I bad supposed quite above such • sale. I considered the price alto gether insufficient, especially as Mlaa Beyard waa worth *\UOO,OUX How over, a title la a good thing for a worn an of meuus to have In the family. "Well." I said, "It only remains for n>e to Wish you a pleasant life among British peers and peeresses" "Too don't seem very regretful" ahe pouted. "You want a title; therefore I want you to have a title. If you tid'ded my assistance to get one you should hare It" •'That's very kind of you." I arose. "Are you going so soon!" "Yes. There 1 * nothing mutually Inter esting for us to chat about Uoodby. I I.'''c liters wilt tie no sl.p tietweeu you and your wish" She didn't look altogether satisfied as She offered me her hand and bads las adieu. That evening Btngletau celled oa me. "I heard you were here and came up at once. I hare news for you. One of your American be Use has tieeu unwise enough to throw herself away ou me" "Indeed P "Yea; that pretty Mias Beyard—no and of money In bar own right. Yoa've been very bind to me thus far. old chappie, but I*v# got a harder nut for you to crack now The sums you have ad re seed are bagatelles compared with what 1 need now. I've got to hasp up this expenditure fur three months. Then comes the wedding, with Its pres ent to the bride. My uncle's boquaol won't be paid for a year. That's all the security I hare to give. I moan I haven't any to giro at alt" . 1 bad said only that day to Mlaa Bey ord. "If you needed my assistance yen should bare It" Hero waa a ttoac* to help her by helping Lord Singleton. "How much do you need?" 1 asked. "I coakl get ou with f 10,000." "Nonsense! You need $110,000" 1 took a check book from a trunk and wrote him a check for $00,000. "You will areruge up $10,000 u month as Mlsa Bayard's fiance. No gush, please. There's no obligation. I know you will he good for the amount" In a few daye I received a note from Mlaa Beyard asking me to cull. I dropped In an hour before dinner. I saw at once there waa something on her mind, She looked at me with the asms expression aa before her Blugle ton affair. "When you told me the other day." ahe said, "that If I needed your as sistance In my affair with Lord Bln gletuu you would give it 1 didn't think I should have to thank you for It so soon." "What do you menu?" I asked In alarm. "You have supplied bis temporary wants" "Has Jie gone daft to tell you about It I" "My aunt knows tits people lu Fug j land and knows that very soon he will | tune Into £100,000. She also knows! that meanwhile he would uot lie uhle ; to live ns we do during our engage- j meut. She offered him temporary as- ' ststance. He told her that he had Just! n ode a loau from the 'best fellow Id America' and lu the exuberance of his; > uhunhiwtu gave her your name." I 1 never was more astonished tu my ' life. Miss Beyard could have knock- j ed tue down with u feather. The next afternoon Blngletou came up tu me at the eusluo, his smiling fnce leg with Intelligence. "She's told me all. What a deucedly funny affair, to he sure! I congratu late you, old chappie. But, I say, do you need that thirty thousand! There is a second beet, yon know, and I ex pect to land her tonight. Ten million sure and pertiapa more. But" — his face falling—"abe'e not Mlaa Beyard." I begged him to keep the thirty thou sand a* tong aa be ueeded It I waa happy a few daye later when ha toM me that he bad secured the $10,000,0001 P. FISK BRADY. Highland Crofters. In the middle of the last century the crofters lu tin' west highlands seldom saw money aud never ueeded It They erect.-'I fur themselves huts mostly built of turf, fioorvd with cloy aud roofed with heather. They kept a few cattle, goat.* and sin-op. which grused at will on the opcu hillside and provided them with milk and wool They lived a truly simple life, and their needs were few. They grew oats for their owu food uud potatoes, which formed their other chief article of diet Tea was an unknown lux ury. It was by uo means uncommon to find person* who had uever tasted It, Wheateu bread had never been seen lu those parte. Their clothe* were made from the fleeces of theti owu sheep, spun and woven by th« good wires during the long wtntei nights and dyed front the simple dyes made from the lichens which grew on the stems of trews or on the bowkton of rock In the neighborhood. Tbs whisky they drank came from secret stills on the hillside and bad never paid excise The nearest pariah church was often many miles away No school was there for the children Vary tow of them. Indeed, could read or 'Trite. Still fewer had ever beard a word of English spoken. Their sp!r ttrial needs, however, were not neg lected. for they received constant vis Its from the "men." as they were call ed. whe had eonstitnted themselves the t^j.t'oal jr-tidc* of their neighborhood. Patti's Final Farewell. Mine. Adelina l'attl, whose final and Irrevocable decision to retire from the operatic stage has been announced, has bet'ii making "furewell tours" for the past ten or fifteen years. Every time she got through with one she was tempted to make Just one more. But there are good reasons for believ ing that she Is now really going to re tire. Recent tours have not tended to strengthen her reputation as the great est songstress of her time. Though her voice has held out remarkably well. It Is conceded by all that It now shows the ravages of time. And no ras bakon and ba nomas cxoxbstbom. wonuer. for she was born In Madrid In 1M8 and Is therefore sixty-three years of age. aud she has been on the stage for over half a century. Mme. l'attl has made three experi ments In matrimony. In 1968 she mar ried the Marquis de Caux. This prov ed an unhappy match, and a divorce resulted In 1S8G she married tbs well known opera singer. Signor Nlco UnL Her first husband died tn 1889. and Nlcollui died about ten years later. A half doxen years ago she married Baron Oluf Rudolf I'ederstrom.
