Lisxier* waa Hit Priscilla Kano's ejaculation aa bar pretty daughter, a black eyed, curly haired, roguish faced girl of seventeen, who worked in one of tbe big Kensington factories, walked into tbe kitchen, swinging her dinner basket in her hand and bumming a merry tone. "Yea. dear mother, it is I,” said tbe girl, and she kissed the wrinkled face of tbe bard worked woman. "I'm glad you've come," said Mrs. Kane, glancing admiringly down into her daughter’s pietty face. "Mr. Mer cer is in tbe front room. He's been wait ing for yon for abont two bonrs, and Lizzie," sinking her voice, "be had a lung talk with your father, in which he said that be loved yon and wanted to make yon bis wife. I'm sore it almost took my breath away when your father told me about it. for he's got a good businetb and own* lota of property be sides. He told your father that as soon as yon were bis wife he’d satisfy the mortgage ou this boose and make ns comfortable for tbe balance of our lives. Lord knows, it will seem strange enough to rest, for l*ve seen nothing bnt work since 1 was a chit of a girl, and I've grown old before my time trying to make ends meet Now pat on yonr gingham dress and go in to see him. He is in tbe front room." Mrs. Kane paused suddenly and stepped back with a startled cry, fur, happening to glance at her daughter’s face, site *aw such a marvelous change in its expression that she grew alarmed. “Now. Lizzie," she continued, “don't fret me mid say you wont do it, for I've got s raging headache, and a little more excitement will drive me crazy. I am sore it's not much that your pa and I ask yon to do. Yon ought to be willing to make some sacrifice for onr s.ikea.” "1 am!" answered Lizzie. and tbe hard lines in her face softened; "I’m willing to work early and late for yon, but when yon ask me to marry a man whom 1 hate it is too much." “There, there." began Mrs. Kane. “I knowed you’d only have one of your tan trums as soon us I told you of your good fortune, but your father would go to tbe saloon and leave me to face it all,” and sinking into a chair she threw her apron over her bead and began sobbing and crying and rocking herself back and forth in a manner suggesting hysteria. “So father baa gone to the saloon again, after promising me to remain away." said Lizzie, and her eyes snap “lt's because he's in trouble," apolo gized the mother, wiping her eyes. “If you’d only marry Mr. Mercer and lift us out of onr poverty, your pa would be a different man." “1 doubt it!" mattered Lizzie: and then, speaking load, said: “Well, 1 won't marry Mr. Mercer—that settles it. Marry him? I'll go out and beg first!" and. seizing her shawl and bat, qnickly donned them before her mother could interfere, rushed out of tbe door, and had reached the end of the alley be fore that lady could get to the gate. "That girl will be tbe death of me,” Mrs. Kane moaned, re-entering tbe kitchen, and then rolling down tbe sleeves of her faded calico dress she smoothed her hair and walked into the front room, where Mr. Isaac Mercer, a fat, pudgy man of fifty, with a smooth and very red face and a bald bead, sat vacantly staring at the big. pattern in the cheap ingraiu carpet. Rather haltingly she apologised for her daughter's absence, saying that the latter would not be home until late, having to do overwork at the mill, and Isaac Mercer left, promising to call ou the morrow. Lizzie meanwhile proceeded toward the saloon which her father frequented. She was obliged to cross the railroad to reach the place, and she stopped at the little signal station, where she knew Charlie Hancock, the telegraph operator, was at work. Charlie was the particular friend of Ned Howell, a brakeman on the railroad, who bad been Lizzie's lover since they were children together, and whom she bad promised to marry when he should have saved enough to give her a home. “Charlie." she said, tapping on the window to attract his attention, “will 58 be down tonight!” At sonnd of her voice Charlie raieed hie bead from hie work, and catching eight of the girl'e pretty face, sprang to his feet “Qreat Scott, Lizzisl Is it youf* was his ejaculation, sud then, without mean ing to be harsh or cruel, be told her in excited, disjointed sentences about a terrible accident that had taken place on the railroad at the other end of the di vision. Ai he proceeded the in fancy saw the terrible scene, bat she tittered no sound, and continued staring into his face with dry, wide open eyes “Poor Ned was caught between two ears, and the doctors say one of his lege will hare to oome off. He's pretty badly mashed and may die- All the. wounded » w*e taken to the Presbyterian hospital and" He stopped suddenly, and, rushing from bis little den, ran oat on the plat form and caught Li sale in his arms just as she reeled, fainting. She did not remember much after this, and an age seemed to hare passed when she Anally opened her eyes in her own shabby little chamber at home, to And her mother, her father and the doc tor bending over her. The first question was about the acci dent, but they pat her off. and it wae not until she was able to dt np that she learned the whole truth. Her lorer had loot one of hie logo, and, being no longer useful to the railroad company, had been discharged. They did not tell her that aereral let ters bad come from him. nor did they inform her that her father, being for once In bis life sober, controlled and in fluenced by his wife, bad written a letter to the crippled brakeman. informing him that Lizzie waa shortly to be mar ried to Mr. Isaac Mercer. The latter called upon her aereral times while she was convalescent, bat she invariably refused to see him, and would never eat the tempting delicacies that be sent to her bedside. One evening when her mother was busy in the lower port of the bonne, and her father had gone a* usual to the sa loon. Lizzie pot on her hat and cloak and stole from the house. Just before she reached the railroad the door of Charlie Hancock's little den opened, and n mao onmeont ou crutches Ai be app-'ached, Lizzie rushed for ward.

"What?" cried Ned. and bis face brightened. "Why. I heard that yon were going to be married tomorrow, aud 1 couldn't resist the temptation to come np and look on yonr dear face once more before losing you forever." "It's all a monstrous lie!" cried Lissie hotly. “I wouldn't marry him if bn was worth ten times as much as be is." “1 thought it must Ik* true.” said Ned “when yon dido t answer my letters." “I never received them." . "And you don't mean to say that you still love snch a |toor. crippled wretch as I am?" "I’d love yon if you’d lust both your legs?" cried Lizzie, and she could hardly restrain herself from kissing him right then and there. One of Ned's fellow sufferers by the railroad smashup was a high official of the road, and learning tint the crippled brakeman was qf more than average in telligence, had secured him a position in the general office of the company, where be was bound to rise. Lizzie needed but little urging to con sent to a marriage that night, and it be ing too late to procure a license they sought that Mecca of runaway lovers* Camden, and were made one.

Any industry that keeps money at home which otherwise would be sent hbroad is a public blessing and therefore Tiir Hkkau> takes pleasure in referring to the North \ak na I'laning Mill of which James A. McKenzie is the pro prietor. The mill waa built in 1880, and has been doing a large and satiafactory business ever since. In order to do away with the expense of fuel and engine, an artificial lake nearly two acres in extent was constructed and the machinery oper ated by water (tower. Aside from turning out a large amount of moulding and scroll work, thousands of fruit and vege table boxes are manufactured during the season and at a cost lower than they can be bought at Portland, exclusive of the freight. This is an advantage which our shippers should, and no doubt do, appre ciate. The mill was built with a view to the consumption of 10, QUO feel of lumls-r per day, but if necessary this capacity can be increased somewhat. Mr. McKenxie makes a specialty of the manufacture of pumps of various patterns and sixes and whatever he saya in reference to these ar ticles can be depended upon, fur his pumps are in use all over the county and all who have had dealings with Mr. Mc- Kenzie know him to bo straightforward and fair, as well as prompt in the execu tion of all orders. While this community was rather small when Mr. McKenxieem harked in his undertaking, he was far sighted enough to realise that the popula tion was rapidly increasing and that the development work in progress woulo create a demand for the products of hh manufactory, and so it has proven, am to-day he is able to turn out at his ndll work that is more satisfactory and ai lower prices than ran be secured by seud irg abroad.
