And watched the flamiug embers dart; While Love, the rogue, another pyre Did kindle in his heart. tbe parting moments drew, It seemed so like a leave of life. Be mustered courage and did sue That she would be his wife. And But, with a little thoughtful pause. Mid blushes of the deepest pink. She answered: • Not this year—because— You know what folks would think!" -Lift. to he JACK'S FORTUNE. In What It Consisted and How It Came to Him. L Jack Dayton was twenty-four years c f age. He was handsome, as that term applies to man; he was studious in an extraordinary sense; he was as sober as a cold-water advocate; ho was a lawyer, and he was as poor as a church mouse and prouder than Luci fer before he was exiled froifl Heaven. Jack Dayton was as brave as a Ben gal tiger, and his proverty never seemed a burden and a reproach to him before he met Gussie Vandorn. After that momentous meeting at Saratoga he felt that he could hang himself because he had not been born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The fact of the matter is Jack Day ton was in love from the soles of his feet to the crown of his intellectual head, and because ho was poor his pride stood between him and the rich woman who had stolen his heart in an me. he me you 1 ery a unguarded moment He had been practically raised in a lawyer's office. He had entered it at the age of twelve as general utility boy and ho had left it at the age of twenty-two a finished lawyer, with a few hundred dollars saved up during the long years. •Go somewhere, Jack," said the fond mother, "and stay all summer. You never had a vacation in your life, and you should celebrate your admis to the bar by taking one. You have been a hard student; you have been a loving and devoted son. Go take a vacation." Jack kissed her and took himself off atoga, the worst place on earth, except Newport, for a poor man to But Jack was lient upon cole n grand style and within tho limits of three hundred So he went to Saratoga and •oom at one of tho best for solid enjoy ment and a profitable review of his law books. his the » t ns k' • his admi-sio bunting dollar* took a mt)de hotels and started.il in But the Vendor ns were at Saratoga, too, and at the same hotel with J ,ck. He got acquainted with them in no time. He and Gussie got on famously in an easy, procrastinating way. was a dashing, brilliant woman, with orld seldom saw. She began by studying Jack. He was a social phenomenon. He was the onchnlant, self-; at the sprin humorous con She n ?ub»*r •sed and most dignified young m: thoughtful yet oft versaiionalisd. Every body wondered a t and fashionable \v< what a brilli an ltke Gn-s admire i and undemonstrative man like Jack could find to ie Van Ion <sed S('lf-pO studious, u much together They Dayton. about the lintel, "talking literature" •ou hi say. When Jack's three hundred dollars cere Some began to get down to a fine point he set about returning to New York. In stead of taking him through the sunl it had just taken six weeks of Saratoga in a very quiet way to eat the life out of it There is nothing like a summer hotel for eating up money. Jack had to go but he wanted to stay. While the two were out for a quiet walk ono afternoon about the middle mer of August« Jack said: ••Miss Vandorn, I go to New York Mv vacation * is at an to-moi end. " Miss Vandorn was as silent as a d tliere Jaek w as snrpn tombstone, by and cast a hasty glance int face. her He could not startled. II he surprise and bewildered lier countenance his mistake expression on abrupt declaration had provoked. His heart, gave a great leap and then Stood still. •Tf I say I go with regret it is be came you have made my stay so very pleasant," he managed to say. "Must you go?" asked Gussie. "I must go. I am but a poor young lawyer port. seems like a dream." "What seems like a dream?" with a loving mother to sup My dream hour is over. It "The few weeks I have been here and privileged to have so much of your society." "I shall be pleased to see you at our home in New York, Mr. Dayton.'' "Miss Vandorn," said he, solemnly, "we have always been frank with each other; let me he so now. Why? I am too poor to lie numbered among your Now York friends." "I shouldn't mind vour poverty, Mr. Dayton. 'Worth makes the man. and want of it the fellow,' you know." "Yes; but tho world does not look I have I noither d nt. it that way ig'e for a place to stand, e may meet again. I pray go! to «Ini Some day w that we may. Aud it will seem a long time, before that day comes." They parted. When she reached her room, where the lux .tries which wealth alone com iSZïSÂÎ! an a sweet smile upon her lips. "He will return to me." she mur mured to herself, "and I shall wait until ho does." a All this passed through Jack Day ton's mind two years after it had oc curred. He had had a hard struggle. With all his brilliant talents he had a time of it to make both ends meet. Ho was brave and hopeful, and he nurt ured these by thinking of the brilliant woman he had not met since he parted with her at Saratoga. Ho heard of her often, but ho purposely avoided meeting her. "What's the use?" he would ask ». §f himsclt "Jack," said his mother, as he went home one night, "Ihave never spoken to you about your father because the subject is a painful one to me. But 1 have heard news to-day through his father's lawyers that you should know." "Well, mother, what's the news? have never taken any stock in my father, because you never told me any thing about him, and I concluded that he must have wronged you very deep ly-" I A plea In "He did. Jack. He thought ho loved me. but he did not. He married me, aud when he found that his rich fat lier would not sanction tbe marriage he deserted me. For twenty-five years he has lived in Europe. He drank very hard, so I have heard. He nevei wrote to me. but his lawyers have paid me a small sum every quarter, you know." "Well, yes," said Jack; "1 know you drew the money, but 1 didn't know he was living and that he is rich. 1 shall institulo action to.reeover your rightful share of his money." "But he is now dead, Jack." "Dead?" "Yes; lie died in Paris a month ago." When Jack entered his office tho next morning his head was full of the news his mother had told him and of projects to look into his father's affairs to protect his own and his mother's interests. He had hardly got settled down to his work before a spruce young man in a footman's liv ery presented himself and handed him a sealed letter. He read the letter I. with mingled emotions. He put on his coat and hat and followed tho servant to the pavement and entered the magnificent carriage in waiting. The carriage stopped before a rich ne of tho fashionable up town streets, and the doors flow open house in ns Jack approalieil to them. He H I* was led to a largo bedroom, alked to the side of the bed, around hysicians and one or two congregated. Every A shrunken as extended to him, and he which t servants body made way for him. hand grasped it. "Young man," said a faint voice am your grandfather, your mother when she was young. Your father is now dead, rascal. I have kept track of you through the years since you were born. I have not long to live, want you to forgive me beforo I die. 1 will not ask your mother to forgive me, because I have occasioned her too much sorrow. All my wealth is yours, ly to sec my lawyeis, Jenks & Jetiks. You will find every tiling in shape, for my house has boon in order a great many years against this hour." Jack sank down by the side of the bed thoroughly unnerved. He was astrong man, but in this hour, when the past was to be atoned for and death hov ered about the grandfather wronged him, but whom he had never seen before, lie was weak as a child. • Forgive—" and the spirit of James Dayton left tho frail and wasted body, where it had lodged for seventy years, before he could finish the sentence. "1 •rouged I All II as a I You have dm hud m. Three months after the mortal re mains of James D ayton had been con signed to tho earth from which they came Jack Dayton presented himself at the Fifth avenue residence of Gussie Vandorn. His head was in a fearful state of agitation. After a short time, which seemed an age to him, the young woman entered the parlor. He arose to his feet and advanced to meet her. "Miss Vandorn, will you pardon the liberty I take in calling upon you?" "Mr. Dayton, you have been freo to call upon mo, by invitation, for the past two Tears." ■But 1 thought you may have for gotten." "I have not forgotten.' Jack gazed into her eyes a moment with all the earnestness of tho days since they had parted. Her eyes dropped beneath his, and her face was suffused with blushes.
