Yesterday a n up-town lad, whose ic pants were hanging by one lbu)ltton and i whose nose had evidently recently Iecu a used to Iplow corn, decided to drink out H the nozzle of a hose that was placidly P coiled upi in ftrot (of aI store on Second street. V lie had just. wrapped his features v arouind the nozzlet, and closed his eyes t to take a long, invigorating pall at the I dripping fountain, when a clerk inside Ii who had been watching the thing a c little turneid on the full pressnre of one t hundred and teln feet to the sqtinare l inch. p TI'here was a smotheredl gurgle and v the sound of hissing waters for a mo- I ment, then all was still. The clerk t came out with the dloor m:.t and wiped i the water from the calnm features of the boy as he lay there, then turned him s over and opened his mmymi;h so that the I water cenould run out of him, tenderly I spankedl him with a pine board tore store animation, and sent hin home.

The P'resident, tiniding the negro had served in a regiment that sutffered sev erely at the battle of Fort Donelson, ask ed if he was in the tight. The colored man owned he had hadl a taste of it, and then the following collo quy ensued : "Stood your ground, did you?" "No, sah; I runs!" "Run at the first fire ?" "Yes, sah, and would hab run soona had I knowed it was comin'." "If our soldiers were all like you, traitors might have broken up the gov e ornment without resistance." S"Yes sabh; dar would hlab been no helpl) n for it. I wouldn't put my life ,n de n scale 'gainst any goberment dat eber u 'zisted, for no goberment could make Sup do loss."

"s waf In a recent issue of otne of our local o piApers appeared this item: We "NEW ORLEANS, La., July 6.-Gui- In 1 seppe Esposito, alias Radazza Tona, a for good-looking Italian, was arrested last and Tuesday on extradition papers, and alai taken to New York and placed on board In an Italian man-of-war. He turns out to her be a daring brigand, for whom the Ital- ,a ian Government had offered a reward of ma $25,000 livres, dead or alive." ner The paragraph recalled with startling ers earnestness, an instance in my life that his happened about three years ago. With cea a party of friends I was visiting Naples, hai and among our number were two per- bol sons who will, without doubt, learn the. any fate of Guiseppe with feelings of emo- tre; tion. They were Charles Griffin and son Helen Wentworth. Charles Griffin had beg been my college churn, and later, my pro partner in business; but being possessed A of abundant wealth and a rather indo- sea lent nature, he was rather an `honorary On member of the firm than otherwise. fri( Tall and full chested, with a head like the Capello, a frank hearty disposition, a wo Sgenial, good nature, well educated anld we refined, he had been lionized by the fair Th sex till he had become fairly satiated bo with their flatteries, and 'though he cal might have had wealth and beauty for rep the asking-for many a fair heart had bel beaten more rapidly at his approach, at ma the age of thirty-five he was still a bach- let elor, farther, if possible, from the mat- re( rimonial sea than at twenty. Together to we had visited many of the principal eig points of interest in the old world, but poý through the varied scenes he had pass- by ed, lie had maintained the same noncha- me lant indifterence to the smiles and tlat- ful teries which had been lavished upon him mt as at his own home across the water. stc In the icy realms of the Czar we had of been whirled through the glittering the moonlight in the gay equipage of a m, prince, and basked in the smiles of a 1., d princess of royal blood, and while I, w, . awed by royal presence, contined my re- be it marks to the extreme limits of studied on d deference, my friend chatted with the 1le1 B, utmost familiarity with the fur-clad ha beauties about us. Like St. Peters e* burg, so was Baden-Baden, with its an ' gold-covered tables surrounded by beau- «I ties from all over the continent; Paris, br with its gay throng of beauty and fashl- Li , ion ; Madrid, in all the pridle of its Span- to I ish dlignity; Berne, Munich, Vienna, It and many intermediate places of amuse- ni it ment and interest, to sunny, sleepy Na- re Y ples. tr d Iere, in our Ibreezy palace, whose tr windows overlooked the beautiful bay, ei tN we had met a party from our own dis- t es tant American home, among whom was tl me Helen Wentworth, who, with an inva leI lid sister was making the tour of the ei a continent, in hopes of restoring the lat li ter to health. Like ourselves, they had o re (dleterlmined to spend a short time in Na ples, and, although in our own land we , id would have been strangers, here amid , o- foreigners, there was a bond of sympa- d rk thy that quickly placed us upon a foot- b -1 ing of gradually dlawning friendship. g le I shall not attepipt to describe the per- a nm sonal charms of Helen Wentworth. Her he beauty was of that grand type that the d 'ly masters loved to depict and that lioets o ;e- raved about. . Byron, in his wildest o dreams, never produced a greater con- tl re ception of female loveliness than we a or found in our countrywoman. At their o mit first meeting, I saw that my friend had p in lost his heart. The nonchalant manner a that had nlways tlharacterized him in a society atonce gave way, and .hle exer- t a ted himself to the utmost to win the I ho heart of this new acquaintance. He E met, however, with hut little success, for though she smiled graciously upon (1 .al him, he could not but feel that she t vouchsafed to him only what she did to k- others of her friends. She was very 4 gracious to all. Among the guests that we often met in the parlor of the grand t hotel was a certain count Lanciotto, a , reputed nobleman of great wealth in the I city of Florence. The count was a man of perhaps twenty-seven years of age, of fine appearance and courtly manners, who seemed to devote his whole life to pleasure and personal gratification. His I ,admiration for Miss Wentworth was un on ,ov concealed, and I at oice saw that in him my friend had a formidable rival. IIp A month passed, and my friend dfered I de Helen his heart and asked her to 'marry her hiii. His suit was rejected. Charles ake was despondent. He would have left : Naples immediately, but at last I per uld suaded him to remain. About the same d," time we knew that the ecunt had also nan proposed, and we were gPite confident that he had also been rejected. This be dat lief afforded aray of cooklation to my friend, andinduced hinm toremain. One day Lanciotto left the hotel and Na sia. pies. He had been called to Florence, so we were informed. ThatlPay and ma the next wemissed his society, for he the was an agreeable companion. hai On the third day of his departure Miss she Wentworth was missed from the hotel. trey In the evening she had gone out alone for a walk along the shore of the bay, 1 and had not returned.- Her friends were the alarmed, and Charles was distracted. vie In spite of his rejection he still loved sid her. The head of the police department stil was called in to aid in the search. The the man shook his head in a doubtful man- su ner. Guiseppe and his band of follow- OFp era had become very bold of late, end anm his retreat had been so carefully con- No cealed that all attempts at his capture tee had proved a failure. Probably the an' bold brigand had borne the lady away we Sand secured her in one of his hidden re- the treats where she would be held for ran- Ea som-unless he lady chanced to be an' beautiful, when the "Lion" would WI probably keep her for his mistress. wi: All that night and the next day, the pei to( search went on, but without success. On the evening of the second day my in friend and myself were conferring with An the head of the police to devise new nil work for the morrow's search, when we w' were approached by a slender youth. There was a wild expression in the we boy's eyes that startled me at first and called my attention more closely to the regular and almost beautiful features before me. As he paused the young man made a sign to Charles, and the letter reluctantly followed him. Di- sa; rectly he returned and motioned for us rce to come. An eagerness altogether for- E eign to his nature seemed to have taken cl possession of the man, as he, followed diPr by the boy, hurried us to his own apart- dii ment, and, after we had entered, care- an fully locked the door. The boy's (wo man's, for it was a female in disguise), story was soon told. She was the wife mi of the brigand leader who had brought in the American lady to the rendezvous to be make her his mistress. So far no vio- at 1 nee had been offered Helen, but the woman knew not how long such would V be the case. The brigand's wife had w 1 endeavored to persuade her husband to a let the captive's friends ransom her, he t had refused, and she had sworn revenge. a She would conduct a force to the brig- P! Sanuds' retreat, and effect their capture. hi "But" she added, "many men must be L ' brought, for the successor of -Leone the Lion,' has seventy men who will fight ot to the death." ' Instantly all was hurry and excite- h ment. The head of the police confer red with the commandant of the for tress, and an entire brigade of Italian f e troops were placed at his disposal. By ' eight o'clock the troops were ready to " start. Charles and myself, with two or a 'i three gentlemen from the hotel accom- a a panied them. Nearly all night we march e ie ed, folloiving the wake of the slendert t. figure of the brigand's wife, who led us Id on-for what ? Revenge! n SIn .the still, gray dawn. of early e morning, our force had surrounded a id secluded mountain glen, where the ban a- ditti lay encamped. The sentries had 't been captured without an alarm being given, and every arrangement made for a r- a complete surprise. n er In the evening Helen had strolled a Je down to the beach, and sat down upon t ts one of the low benches iu"the cool shad- a 5t ows of the overhanging branches of the n- trees, that lined the water's edge. For e a time she held undisturbed possession :ir of the place, then a party of noisy t ad pleasure seekers came down, and their er merry laughter rapg out among the 1 in still waters of the bay. Helen wished 4 2r- to be alone." Their presence irritated , he her. At first she thought to return to Fle her room, but changed her purpose and I *, walked slowly down the beach. In the 1 on distance she saw the deep shadows of 1 le the high bluff that looks out toward to Vesnvius. Slowly she walked on, and iry gradually the voice of the revelers died at away, and she stood alone among the nd the shadows. The sun had long since a sunk below the distant waters and the he long twilight had gradually faded and an deep shadows hung over the ravines, of and encircled the basis of the hills. A rs, low murmur crept up from the bay, a to sort of low soothing monotone, that ius entranced the senses of the fair girl as 'I- she sat npon a huge losulder just out of in reach of the waters. l'Then a form crept al. up beside, a hand was placed overiher red lips, and she was borne to a boat near rry by in which a number of men were 'leas waiting. The beat was pushed off and eft rowed rapidly across the waters and er- again brought to' the land in a little .me inlet that ran in rom the bay. Helen lso was placed in a litter and borne rapidly ant across the country till a rude encamp be- ment was reached. $he knew that she my was in the hands of the Italianbanditti. )ne The men boreher to their chief, and she Na- stood face to face with-Count Lanciot ice, to.

Both e in love and war he was called the "The Pr he Lucky Darling," but at last fortune in kn ht one of her frenks changed from smiles wE to frowns, and the poor fellow was shot Pe in two places at once, his ankle and his er e- heart. The weapons were different to tle r- be sure, a carbine and a pair of honest, of Sbrown eyes, but the latter proved more ha an 8 fatal than the former. to It happened in this way, that one day si or at a military maneuver a carbine, which sh Sa soldier near hinm was carrying, explod- ed ch ee prematurely, and the bullet struck an cler the young Lieutenant, almost shatter- di' us ing the ankle bone.

Beside ri eir ra lively wit and well-stored mind, she gi the had a sweet and flexible voice, a beauti- sM bed ful face, and a niturally winning' man- - ted ner. Ito There were no young people in the mnd family of his friends, and it fell to Bar- v the bara to perform many little services for ti o of the wounded soldier. The consequence Ii ard was, she so lovely and lovable as well ae ti and good and sincere, that the young sol- ii lied dier, whose' heart had been pricked n the many times but never felt a wound, fell a nce madly, desperately and genuinely in love P the with her, and knew before long that his * and love was returned.
