A myriad of stars looked down upon the world, i-nd wondered at its littleness. What were the troubles of one , human creature in it that he should fume and fret v.'ullo he lookr-d hack into their ', bright, calm eyes? V.'Utit difference did it j make in tha grand sel-eum of tho universe ' that he should he r cparaicd front another atom of his kind, wla. it ail were but as ; grains of tho sea shcrj, washed by tho j waves of time! ' Tooth, allied with passion, docs not phi-! losophize, and Sosrris' heart was wrung with j a very human pasioa iu tho dead watches ' of tho eight which, crept on. How differ- j ently tho world would hktohim if Carol! Vrore tu ring on i:er linger u is. v. ere fill wedding ai-proaehing !

It was distrust of Ly man Childor had stationed hint here, though oarcely acknowledged even to liimself. Worn by ifrief and wearied by long vigils, sleep stolo insensibly over him. Wiic was it caused him to start up, v. ide awake on the instant! What hud ho seen what did he think he saw in tho trembling shadows opposite! Had tho doer there opened and shut, letting uut a dark iigaro from those seemingly tieset'tcd onlccs! He opened his win-low and let tiie fresh air fan his check. A footstep, parking away in tho distance, rung out clearly on the street. Another, -softer, fccareeiy heard, etirao out of tho shadows across the way. Slowly, with cat- I like caution, tho man crossed tho street, but started buck as he found himself suddenly , confronted by another form, that laid a de- J taming hold upon lata. I 'Kow, then," said a voice, not loud, but 1 . clear and penetrating, "what aro you up to, ; prying and coving! Out with the whole j business, double quick.' 1 The muttered reply was not audible to - 4tiAl!atoti- elf 'ninr- iia lmi-in ntwiTTrtf then tho other v-jieo Kp.)ke again, a trifle more cautiously, but still to be beard.

J - A clock struck the hour with two res- ' on ant strokes. Still bumming, tho man ''pj below strolled away. Whetcver his busi itv"' Bess might be, 3!r. Ingot evidently had no f ' desire to conceal his presence on the street i.i'J at that late hour, for he stopped to pass a j - word with the patrolman whom ho met on .e : - tho corner. J - "Keep a sharp lookout on our block, j Wilsio," said he, pleasantly. "We are I -i working lato these nights business is rush s ; tog us and it's just the time for some crook I to get in his work after we've- gone.

" Yes, and yoa have her coached to admit nothing to mo nothing of what her looks betray." ; Sho clasped leaned a little her hands together and j foitvard, with a sudden j change in her tens: "Mr. Chi Ic-r. v.'e owe yoa a debt of gratitude, in.iai:rar.,l 1, hut if year putting that money in th.i iu-. 1 rjuot i c.'iili in this, better ten thousand times that you had never obtained it f-such use.

Every dro? of blond drained out cf I;mna CUildei-'s lire; ls kol.c.1 at her with startled one might think with terrified eyes. Her glance war. on tho floor, fort unately, bite did not seo that sudden, ghastly change. " You may not know that pupa had old business aeipiaintaneo with Mr. Farraker, your lato tinele's lawyer. Ho had some cause for writing to,hi:n when you made your first proposition to become his partner, and ho toid tho fact, laying stress upon tho generosity which prompted you to save him in that way. The reply, some wee is later, deprecated the disappointment he had prob ably suffered along with yoursulf, since your uncle's will had, left but a small amount of comparat ively worthless property to your sister and yourself instead of the fortune which was expected to revert to tha two of you." Lyman's lips opened mechanically. " Hid it not occur to vou that tho ' worth- less property" might have turned out better than Farraker believed: " 'So papa said, so 1 thought at the tune. Sineo that I have had reason to change my mind. Mr Childor, if Hiram Ingot is using Bonic fact connected with tho obtaining of that money to roree Card's 'cr.mpii.niee, I beg of you to save her at any cost to your self or to us. Better that ail should go, than . that she bo made unhappy for life." j Something of his natural color had come back slowly to Lyman's face. Ono hand ! plucked nervously e.t a button of his coat; but his cye3 were raised to meet, squarely, yet with a sort of sullen resistance, those dark ones that had tears flashing in them now. " You say yon know bow that money was Obtained. Have you any objections to en lightening me to the full extent of your knowledge, and your means of obtaining it? Through IWrp I suppose. His detect- ive instincts have led him to spy out my l sins and report thciuto you. How has he : put it that Ihl Je my partnership fund?" "You do Xorris injustice ; you have al I ways done him injustice. He knows nothing of what I have been telling ynu.

Can you tell mo I am wrong I while yon yield to him. even to the sacrifice of the sister you 1-jveC : His eyes foil before Lev clear, penetrating glance. Hhadows crept over his coun tenance. His mood changed to one bitter and scornful. "Then you have been accusing me out of your inner consciousness only Well, I can not hope to reinstate myself iu your good opinion, if I ever held a place there. Some day you shall know whet her you ha . judged mo truly or falsely; until theu " "Give me one assurance that I am wrong, and I wiil believe you." spoke Althea, im pulsively, even eagerly. Sho would rather think well of him if she could. What madness possessed Lyman that ho should answer her as he did? "I wilt give you no assurance. Wcrcl a lover, like Bergman, waiting for my doom from your lipr., I would swear to my inno cence, but I have given up all the preten sions I ever had to your favor. In this one Instance, at least I will rival you in gen erosity, Miss Ilverlcigh. 1 resign in favor of tho rival whom you would give up to another love. You will think better of it, perhaps, when the actual opportunity for your sacrifice comes." An indignant fi-.tt.in had i pruug into her Checks, but the kepi- hi-ck her resentment, asking cageriy: Does that mean that yc-u will reconsider yours intentions regarding Carol? I can overlook nil else if you ci;!y do that." "My intentions n-girdin jr Carol shall be carried cut to the uttermost. "Then this iiitervio y us well close.

"Coma, Lyman, are you ready! Re lueoilwr that this is tho Uist time I will boro you with ray company. Shan't bava to rciyoaron lo makt! my wleomo after this.

" I am nut quite through, but I can finish tip every thing to-nisht," answered Lyman, abstractedly, as the -two went out to gether, leaving JCorris, with heart beating in wiid. rebellious throbs which would not be one-lied. Then tho morrow was tho wedding-day ! The thought of ail he was losing came over him anew. If he could only do something if ho could sec her once asain ! Ouco, in his doubt and misery, he bad written to her, but bis letter had been re turned unopened, directed in Lynsau's firm hand, but t he inelosure Iwrc the words " By Caret's wish," in what ho knew must be Carol's own writing. Tho rebuff was complete. Yet as that last evening wore on, his restlessness car ried him to the vicinity of tho Childcr resi- 1 ! U - "COJIE, LTMAX, AliE YOC 11CADI I' donee. He did not expect to speak to her; the most he hoped was to catch a possible glimpse of her before she gave herself ir retrievably to another. Even that much did not seem likely to be granted him. Tho shutters were closed, and scarcely a gleam of light stole out along the entire front. He walked past for some distance, then turned and repassed, trying to imagine what they were doing within, how sho was enduring Ingot's fulsome attentions. Could it bo t hat she was finding pleasure in his udmiration, that she was passing a counter feit of love oa herself? for that sho had taught herself any real regard for the man, he did not believe. Ho had passed and repassed thus twice, and was approaching tho house for the third time, when the door opened and the two , men camo out. Mot wishing to be seen, -Korris pauaeJ in the shadow of the next house widlo they utood chatting for a moment together. " She has no doubt of you!" Ingot asked. "Xotadoubt. Why should she! I have never failed her yet. She relies on my word, and I havo passed it more solemnly than she has ever heard nie declare any thing before. Host easy ; there will be no withdrawal on her part before the time." " Well, you are a cool one," said Ingot, in almost disgusted tones. -I've a streak of tho rascal iu mo, but I can't match you. I'll havo to look out for you as a brother-in-law or you'll be getting the best of me. Well, good-night: sec you to-morrcw, of course.'" "You will see mo to-morrow, "assented Lyman, and the twtparted. going their sep arato ways. "S'orriswas still lingering there when the -door again turned on its hinges. A slight form stood cn the threshold, with a while shawl over its head, looking into the dim obscurity of the street. He stirred, and a low voice called timidly: - Lyman !" "It is I, Miss Childerl" he replied, ad vancing. .' You wouid not receive my let ter, wiil you give mo a word now for the last time!" "I-I had something to say to Lyman,'' she taltred. " Ho is gone beyond, recall. Pray, do not deny 1110 thi3 chance. 'It is only to tell you what you must know, that I love you, love you, aud would give my life to servo you if I could. Oh, w hy were you in such haste to bind yourself - why would you not give me time to try!" - Hush !" she said scarcely above a whis per. Oh, hush ! I must not listen." "Why not? Because your heart plays i the triutori Because, oh, Carol, you might j have been taught to love me? Is it too late ! too late forever, my love, my darling or ! will you break from those hateful bonds j yet aud come tome? Do not go. Let mc S persuade you by all the might and power I of my love to be true to yourseJ, even ; though you may not be kind to me. Do not i marry that man. Do what vou will for j your brother except that. Ho is urging you to it, is he not ! But he has no right to ask so nine a as that." The little, fluttering hand ho had caught and was holding closely in his grew cold and slipped out of his clasp. " You are wrong. Lyman would no more urgo mo to to that, against my will, than you would. Ho wants me to be happy in my own way. Indeed, it is true. " Will it make you happy to marry Ingot, then?" asked Norris, incredulously. Faint as the light was. he could see the rich color which dyed her cheek, the shy, wistful look in the eyes that met his. " 1 expect to be happy - after to-morrow," sho whispered, and so saying was gono. Tho door closed, leaving him standing alone i on the steps. How foolish he had been ! How needless ly ho had worried himself in his fears for her, and yet, poor child! was she not de ceiving herself ? Ho could not be angry with her, though ho tried, but in h's disap pointment he went straight through the streets home and to bed, to the infinite sat isfaction of Mrs. Bates, who knew nothing of the stomi of grief and desolation which kept him wakeful far into the morning hours.

This cwup ny has works and offices in Chicago, New York and New Orleans, and ship-- ciay to its Chicago manufactory at the rate of several car loads a day from High Hill, this State. Mr. C. Dixon, who l- here with Mr. Dickinson, is thoroughly acquainted with the clay deposits here, and it is at his suggestion that a Chicago company comes here to make an investment. Mr. Dickinson says the new owners ol the Salamander Works will at once make purchases of the latest machinery, increase the house room at the works and build a number of additional kilns. The new manage ment thinks one hundred men will he at wirk within six months, and that the daily output will amount to several cars. As with Mr. Dixon, Mr. Dickinson is delighted with Mexico's railroad facilities and an examination of the clay found here satisfies him that the deposit is an excellent and valuable one.
