New York, June IS.— Long Branch has
something to talk about in advance of the
real opening of the summer season. Phil
Daly, the leading professional gambler of
the place, whose Pennsylvania club is the
- most gorgeous gaming hell in America, has
moved into the villa which he has added to
his belongings.. His neighbors have for
years been accustomed to the openness and
splendors of his business, and some of them
had watched the erection of the residence,
but the embodiment of a chapel in the
premises is a revelation which excited them
The house is much bigger than the aver
age of the seaside dwellings, and its archi
tecture is ornate in the extreme. Eccentric
gables, irrelevant pieces of roof and other
devices break the lines in all parts, and at
one comer rises a round turret somewhat
like the spire of a church. A solid wall of
brick, with an ornamental iron fence and
gate, surround the plot The exterior sur
face of the house is polished and stained
hard wood, in a semblance of tiles. At
each side of the front door is a panel of
carved wood, leading the observer to sup
pose at
that thereon he would find the name of
some public institution. But one is lettered
"Tootsey" and the other "Maggie"— the
names of Daly's two children. The interior
is decorated "in a most costly and showy
style. Handsome natural woods, exquisite
fresco, art tiles and elaborated wall paper
make the room quite resplendent. The cost
of the house, aside from the beautiful fur
niture put into it. is said to have been 3100,
-000. .:•■'"-■"-" -777
The apartment, which is more curious to
Long Branchers than was the blue chamber
to Bluebeard's wives, is a chapel; but no
magic key has locked its door against in
truders, and during the week visitors have
been numerous. The furnishers were fin
ishing their work, and a man had been
deputized to explain the place of worship to
all inquirers. The chapel in miniature is
twelve feet square. The floor is polished
wood with an Oriental rug on it The walls
are frescoed in an imitation of dark drapery,
the patterns being copied from the hang
ings in the pope's private chapel at Rome.
The ceiling is painted like a sky, in shading
blue and gray, and at the center is a white
dove on the wing, bearing an olive branch.
The one window is a piece of expensive
work in stained glass,
The altar is a structure fashioned like
those in Roman Catholic churches, but
smaller, being about six feet long and eight
high. It is made of carved and finely dec
orated wood, the prevailing colors being
maroon and gilt Two heads of angels are
embellishing features. The draperies are
specimens of fine embroidery. The reredos,
or back piece, is ornamented with carvings
and.hung with cloths. A solid gold cross,
said to have cost St 000, is kept in a safe at
night, but by day is to stand on the altar.
The receptacle for the host is provided as in
a regular church altar.
The story goes that Daly hopes to atone
for his professional sins as a gambler by
this attention to religion, but those who
know him well declare that he has built the
chapel in deference to the wishes of his
wife, who is a notably pious woman. There
is likely to be some difficulty in the project
so far as the services are concerned. Daly
wishes to engage the Rev. Father McFoy,
pastor of the Star of the Sea church, di
rectly across the street to celebrate a mass
in the Daly chapel every morning through
out the season. The priest is willing to ac
cept the offer, which contemplates a separate
salary of $500 per year; but his application
to his bishop for permission has not yet been
acted on, and the impression is that it .will
meet with a refusal, on account of Daly's
connection with gambling. If so, the re
quest will be renewed by Mrs. Daly. In
any case, the chapel will be used.
Wall street watches with a good deal of
interest the trial of Editor Keep, of the
Wall Street Daily News, in a police court,
for alleged libel. Jay Gould and Cyrus W.
Field are the prosecutors, as well as Norvin
Green of the Western Union company. In
fact, the three big corporations, the Mis
souri Pacific company, the Manhattan com
pany and the Western Union company are
making common cause to crush Mr. Keep
and his paper. He has written altogether
too freely about them and they want to put
him out of the way. But even if they suc
ceed in doing so, it would still be generally
believed that the charges of fraud and
plundering he makes against them were
true. Whatever a judge or a jury might do,
the public at large would not believe any
statement made even under oath by the man
ipulators of the stocks of these three con
cerns. Gould and Field, for instance,
might go on the stand and swear away ev
ery charge made against them, and the mass
of their fellow-townsmen would still hold
them guilty. They would still be discred
ited. There-are men in Wall street whose
mere word would be taken any time, and
whose general Integrity is of the highest
order, but these are not the men who manip
ulate the market In fact, they have noth
ing to do with it except to buy or sell, as
their customers may order. Most of these
men and most of their customers, too, are
emphatically on Mr. Keep's side in his con
test with the big companies now trying to
crush him. They believe he has told the
truth, and they do not believe the denials of
Gould, Field, Sage and the rest
There is a sudden outbreak of girls and
dogs on Fifth avenue. The craze for the
bull pup has spread abroad and he appears
to the number of hundreds, chained to a
more or less attractive young girl, on Fifth
avenue every afternoon. It really seems as
though the sole mission on earth of the
fashionable young woman is to be led around
by the fashionable young pup. . I wonder
what has become of all the red Irish setters
who rendered the avenue picturesque' five
or six months ago? It cannot be that they
axe all dead, for they are a long-lived breed
of dog, and of course they are well cared
for. But all have been forsaken for the
bow-legged, broad-chested British pup.
Already the social ranks show a decided
thinning out, and there will be a good - deal
more of it, with a rush, if an alarm about
pestilence is raised. Many of the Murray
Hill houses have their windows closed, and
all through the fashionable residence part
of the city the notes of preparation for go
ing away for the summer are sounding day
and night. . Cholera or no cholera, the exo
dus will be at least as great as it has been
any season for. several j years past. The
hotels and the better sort of boarding
houses are daily losing guests, who are go
ing off to country places, intending to stay
away till the fall. All the indications are
that, the summer will be an unusually quiet
one in the city.
The summer residences of many of our
noted society people are at Newport, along
the banks of the Hudson, the shores of the
sound and the south side of Long Island.
Lenox and Stockbridge have also, of late
years, been ; brightened up during the sum
mer months by visitors from New York,
who, having tired ; of seaside resorts, which
last year went somewhat out of fashion
now go inland, - during the hot term. It
can hardly be said, . however, that our soci
ety people go to the country for rest. They
simply transfer the social . excitements of
the city to other scenes. Of course there
are exceptions. Some:. people who are
known in society, but do not. make promi
nence in society the aim of life, spend the
smmer in healthfuul out-of-door recreation
and return to New York in the fall ruddy
and strong and ready for the winter's social
campaign. With most society people, how
ever, the summer in the country is simply a
change of ; surroundings. The • 'business" .
of going into society continues all. the year
around for ; them. They, get no holiday.
They go to Newport and other summer' re
sorts, but not ; for rest. The . balls, recep
tions and dinners continue, > The mise-en
scene is changed — the old farce is on
acted. 7;j7V"7:
This is especially true of Newport, where
there is as much social entertaining on a
lavish scale among the New Yorkers who
spend the = summer there as in New York
during the winter. Foremost among . our
society people who have places at Newport
are the Asters. John Jacob and William
Astor have adjoining villas on . the ' cliffs,
surrounded by well-kept grounds and run
ning through to Bellevue . avenue. Their
villas are commodious, but not strikingly
beautiful, having been erected before art
entered as much into our architecture as it
does now. The Astors have" besides their
Newport houses country seats at Rhinebeck
-011-the-Hudson. Near these are places be
longing to some of the Astor connections,
the children of the late Mrs. John Winthrop
C hauler, who was a daughter of the late
Sam Ward's first wife (a Miss Astor), hav
ing a country seat at Rhinebeck' while at
Hyde Park are the country places of Cole-;
man Drayton and J. Roosevelt Roosevelt,
both of whom married into the -Astor
family. ! .yyM
"By the Sea," August Belmont's place at
Newport, is by many referred to as "the
best turned out country-place in the United
States." . " Mr. Belmont is a man of culture
and his refined tastes are shown in the ap
pointments of his various houses. For in
stance, his New York picture gallery is,
though small, admirable of its kind. Mr.
Belmont in purchasing works of art is able
to rely on his own judgment and is not
obliged to leave their selection to some one
else, he simply drawing a check tolas
agent's dictation. Refined elegance pre
' vails throughout his houses. His Newport
villa is low, broad and painted in subdued
colors. The carriage drive winds through
a beautifully trimmed lawn. Mr. Bel
mont's racing stables are on the south side
of Long Island. _

The country seats.of G. L. Lorillard, C.
Rhinelander, Robert and W. K. Vanderbilt
adjoin each other on the south side of Long
Island. Each is surrounded by spacious
grouds and taken together they form a
magnificent country park; Mr. Lorillard
has his racing stables at Westbrook. On
the north shore of Long Island, near Glen

A BRAVE 111 «Mt__| GIRL.
How She Saved tic soil' front a Hor
yyyy \yi'-', rible Death.
From tho Russian, by the San Francisco Call.
The correspondent of the Novostey Dna
(Daily News) writes that, near the village
of Kogoshua, a terrible murder was lately
committed. A Russian peasant, who had
been to the village to sell a pair of oxen,
was returning home with his daughter, a
girl of 14 years, when on his way he stopped
at a kobach (a drinking house) three miles
from town. In the place were several suspi
cious-looking persons, who noticed the
peasant's money when he paid for his drink.
The unsuspecting man left - the house and
went on his way. Soon after, under cover
of the darkness, he was assaulted aud killed.
After rifling the corpse the murderers threw
the body .-of their unfortunate victim into a
well. The girl, who had been a witness of
her father's murder, returned to the house
where her father had stopped, and informed
the owner of what had occurred. He told
the girl to keep quiet, and persuaded her to
stay at his place during the night and he
would see what could be done in the morn
ing. Hardly had he and his wife had time
to put the girl to bed with his own daugh
ter, a girl of the same age, before the mur
derers returned.
The kobachnix (saloonkeeper) acquainted
them of the girl's return, whereupon they
avowed their intention of completing their
bloody work by cutting the throat of the in
nocent child. The kobachnik "objected to
this mode of dispatching the girl, as the
body might be discovered, and be an 5, easy
means of identifying him as an accessory to
the murder of her and her father. He pro
posed to bum her alive in the bread oven.
To this the others consented, and accord
ingly he ordered his wife to prepare for the
burning of the girl. When the oven was
ready he directed his accomplice to take the
girl, who was lying on the outside of the
bed, with a yellow handkerchief bound
around her head, and throw her into the
oven. At the same time he cautioned them
to be quick in their work in order to prevent
her making an outcry. The girl, nervous
and agitated by the dreadful work of the
night, had not gone to sleep. She breath
lessly listened to the preparations of the
villains for her own murder. Quietly ris
ing from the bed, she looked about for a
means of escape, but saw none except a
window, which was fastened with a large
nail, the only other means of exit being the
door through which she had been brought,
and which led directly to the room the mur
derers were in. M}>M :
The terror-stricken girl looked about in
hopes of finding some weapon of defense to
use as a last resort There was nothing in
the place but a cup filled with water. In
voluntarily she grasped it, then laid it down.
Suddenly an idea seemed to seize her.
Turning toward the bed she untied the yel
low handkerchief about her head and tied
it on that of her sleeping companion, taking
care to draw it well down on her face so as
to conceal the features. Then grasping the
sleeping girl by the shoulder, she rolled her
over till she rested on the front of the bed.
Then the desperate girl crawled over to the
inside and waited. The murderers, acting
on the description given by the kobachnik,
seized the girl with the yellow handker
chief over her face and threw her into the
oven. After completing their terrible work
they went to sleep, thus giving the other
girl a chance to escape. She immediately
made her way to town and gave information
to the police. No time was lost, and a posse
of officers, under the guidance of the girl,
soon had the murderers in custody.

Mr. Penoyer Pevensey entered his apart
ments on th street in a leisurely manner, ;
carefully hung up his coat and hat. in the"
hallway, and, setting aside his dripping
umbrella, glanced about the luxuriously
furnished room with visible satisfaction.
Then, drawing before the cheerfully glow
ing grate an arm-chair, he seated, himself
with one of those sighs to which one gives
vent when conscious of having gone through
something disagreeable, and anticipating, a
quiet rest.
Mr. Pevensey had indeed gone through a
most trying experience. On that very even
ing at precisely 9:30, he, a bachelor of
eight and twenty, and not ill looking(which
fact added in no small degree to his self
complacency), had proposed to the charm
ing Miss Emory, and was even how trying
to regain his scattered ideas and explain to
himself how it had all happened. One thing
was certain— that from that time on he was
fettered, and could no longer proudly boast
of his freedom from the gilded ".'"chains of
Hymen. Mr. Pevensey, as he thought of
this, involuntarily heaved, another and a
deeper sigh, and slowly shook his head sev
eral times. It was plainly to be x seen that
he was not in that ■_ lovesick condition
wherein young people are suppesed to ab
jure food and shun sleep, and a superficial
bachelor observer, merely knowing the fact
of his engagement, would have sworn that
he had been beguiled and entrapped by
means of those subtle arts and devices
known only to females. Be this as.it may,
the fact remains that Mr. Pevensey was in
a rather irritable mood, and, after ruminat
ing on his impending fate for half an hour,
he lighted a cigar and opened the "Rever
ies of a Bachelor," with the desire to ex
tract a few drops of . consolation there
from. 7 '..'■„. :
The rain beat dolefully against the win
dow. The clock, to offset this, kept up a
ticking, and, at intervals, an equally pleas
ant and melodious chiming, all of which
sounds fell upon Mr. Peveusey's ears un
heeded, for he had gradually fallen into a
dreamy state of half consciousness. The
fire burned low; and the red-tinted globes
overhead shaded and subdued the light, as
it revealed the half-recumbent figure of the
bachelor thus passing from revery to slum
ber. .777
Patter-patter, tick-tick, patter — -
"Ahem!" said a voice at his side in a pref
atory way. yy.'
Mr. Pevensey started up and looked
about him. Close by, with his chair tilted
back and his legs stretched out toward the
blaze in a most comfortable and degage
manner, was seated a ghost of the male
persuasion a transparent semblance- of a
man veritable spirit.
Mr. Pevensey gasped and each hair be
gan to look about for its individual end on
which to stands. The ghost noted these
signs of trepidation at first with a smile
and then with a wheezy chuckle. Finally
he bioke out in a hollow cackle. ':, -"V y
"I say Pen, old boy," said he as soon as
his risibility had sufficiently subsided,
"don't you know me? Pembroke, you know
Pembroke died last week!"
This was said in a husky, rattling voice,
but in the most cheerful manner imagin
able. Mr. Pevensey gradually regained his
composure; his hair subsided, and in -five
minutes from the time of the ghost's ques
tion was able to give an audible answer.
"Ah, yes; O yes, ha, ha! . 1 know you,
Pembroke yes, knew you all the time." •
"No you didn't," said the ghost, "you
were too confoundedly frightened." Here
he stopped to chuckle again. "But I say,
Pen, I wont hurt you, you know." MMMI
"O!" said Mr. Pevensey, ironically, his
courage by this time quite returned— "you
wont?" 7,777-'' . - ' :/7. yyy- ;
"No,"said the ghost, reassuringly; "I
wont. Now, I'll tell you why I came. He
stopped, took from a ghostly cigar-case a
shadowy cigar, lit it with an invisible match
and began to send forth volumes of ghostly
smoke. After the fifth puff he continued:
"You have forgotten it. but I haven't
Don't you remember one night twelve years
ago, when we made a vow over a skull?"
A glance of Intelligence was now discern
ible in Mr. Pevensey's eyes. He was get
ting interested. .77 -
"That whichever one should die first
must— — -" 'MM '7 ; ; yiy -';7' 7777
"Appear to the other, "finished the ghost,
nodding,' and blowing smoke from his nos
trils. "Ergo, here I am."
"I must say, Pembroke, that you chose
the worst time you possibly could for the
interview, to-night of all others; but then,"
he continued,_ as if excusing Pembroke,
"you didn't know.". .'_- '-
"O, but I did," answered the ghost, with
difficulty keeping down a refractory chuckle;
"I happened to be there myself."
'And saw me make an awkward fool ' of
myself?" .77'" .7 .
''Well, if you want to put it that way, I
suppose I did; I was invisible ; then,
you know, quite invisible." 'M
Mr. Pevensey groaned aloud. To make
an awkward fool of one's self is bad enough;
but to have disembodied spirits acting as
invisible spectators of one's folly •is mad
, "It's all right, "continued theghost, "I'm
mum." ' " .^ ' .7-7 : 777-.
"Don't," said. Mr. Pevensey in a wheed
ling tone, "don't tell any one— -I mean any
other ghost; why, if they should get hold
of it, I would be the laughing stock of
"Jupiter." 777:"
Mr. Pevensey stared. "You don't mean
to say you live on the planet Jupiter?", he
asked. - ■ - - ..
Theghost nodded. "Yes, we do," said
he. taking a long pull at his cigar,
Mr." Pevensey sank back again, merely
remarking, "Well, I'm bio wed."
"You see," explained the ghost, "it's
this way: You die and go to Jupiter; then
when your time comes you return to the
earth and live over again; ; now I was Os
sian once, you know." y,
"Ossian!" exclaimed Mr. Pevensey, as
tonished. ' '.Then who . have I been ; who
was I last?" v
The ghost was evidently embarrassed
by this question. He looked at Mr. Peven
sey, then at tlie fire, and knocked the ashes
off his cigar, but did not answer. His ques
tioner became impatient.
I ."Of course, I don't expect I have been an
Ossian; "l was probably some humble citi
zen, or perhaps an honest artisan." This
was said as an . encouragement and . a
starting point for his vis-a-vis. ...,;•
"You used to live where she does now —
Miss Emory, you know.". '. ' '. y
Mr. Pevensey thought this a most re
markable piece of intelligence, but he also
regarded it as an evasion of the question. ' -
"No matter where I lived," he said; "are
you going to tell me who I was?"
"If you must know, I'll j tell you. You
were a crook a disreputable character, you
know— used to live where the 5 future ; Mrs. ;
P. does now— got killed in a drunken brawl
and died in a hospital. y There; you would
have it, Pen; I if you don't like it it's not my
fault; I didn't intend to, tell you." -: : .r , ■
; - Mr. Pevenseyrduring this '■ speech-gradu- ,
ally assumed an expression that : . boded *no ■,
, good to his transparent guest. When the^
latter had finished he '- arose, and, taking * a
position directly before Pembroke, ; said In
a deep bass:77 {You are a liar!" .7 . ,
The ghost leered at Mr. Pevensey In a
manner most provoking to the latter's dig
nity, < and then said calmly: "You ; used to
treat your wife k : and daughter shamefully,
Pen; you were a perfect brute. Your wife
died in poverty, and your daughter took ; to
the stage. M> You don't believe it? Well, I'll
tell you what I'll do; just to { convince you
I'll give you something that will cause you
to see people and things as you used to do
put you back where you were • about let
me thirty years ago. " '■", '
Mr. Pevensey began to reflect that he
was powerless to harm his . visitor and re
treated to his chair, where he meditated in
silence for some ; minutes on this ■ singular
proposition. M. At length curiosity ■. to learn
of his former existence got the better of his
scruples, and, lookintr up to the expectant
ghost he exclaimed, "I'll do it!" ~"
No sooner were the words, spoken than
Mr. Pevensey was alone, gazing about yin
wonderment and pinching himself to make
sure that he was ;■' riot ■ dreaming or in y a
trance" i; After this proceeding he uttered
divers exclamations expressive of his aston
ishment,' and ; then relapsed into ' silence.
The rain still continued, and the clock was
as perverse as ever in its efforts to outdo its
outside rival; in short, the same influences
that had brought the semi-sleep on Mr. Pe
vensey before, were at work again, and ere
long he was nodding, oppressed by a strange
feeling of lethargy that made him utterly
oblivious to his surroundings and to the
flight of time. , The fire burned lower and
lower and the clock chimed 12. The morn
ing hours dragged on, and at last the sun
shone forth oh muddy streets and dripping
eaves, sending a' ray in at the window full
on the sluinberer's face. lie opened his
eyes slowly and gazed about him with an
expression. of astonishment Slowly he
rose from his chair and walked to the win
dow. 7 "' • -:'■:'
' 'How did I come here?" he muttered.
"Bill's dive— fight— knife— a white
room with cots—^-Well, blow me!" 1
, This last exclamation was called forth by
the discovery of .his own gold watch and
chain. : * "Aint she a 7 beauty?" he asked
himself, taking it out and examining it
closely. "The Hooker must come down
handsome for that handsome! Where did
I get such fly togs, anyhow?" he continued,
surveying himself with unbounded delight
and admiration. "But, I say, I've been
asleep, ', though and, what's more, right
here in this festive mansion. There's some
mystery here— some dark and awful mys
tery." 7 ' •": M.MMMi'MM.
This last was uttered in a hoarse whisper
and accompanied by furtive glances around
the room; nothing presenting itself in any
way explaining his situation, he stole cau
tiously out into the hall, seized his hat, hur
riedly unlocked the door, and passed out
into the street. His bewilderment was now
increased tenfold.' He began to think he
had been transported to another city.
"Them poles with wires— are they
for?" he asked of a passer-by. - 7 yy 'y
The man regarded him with amazement
tapped his forehead significantly, and passed
on without answering. Mr. Pevensey was
dumfounded. Was he in the spirit world?
Had that last brawl been the cause of . his
demise? It seemed likely; "and yet no;
there was the name of his street; he would
seek his own house, and have an explana
tion of the affair. E Yes, there it was at last.
It had not changed, at least; the same steps,
the same door, as . there that he remem
bered leaning against so often late at night,
and observing the two whirling lamp-posts
on the corner. He ascended the steps and
tried the door, y Not up '; yet. He must
ring. At the summons a step was heard in
the hallway, and a sleepy servant peered
out from the half-opened door. -
"O, it's you, is it Mr. Pevensey?" said
James:'- 'MM '-'yMyMMMMyMM
"No," said Mr. Pevensey, "it aint me, is
it? Now, my fine feller, will-you tell me
wot yer adoin' in my house, hey?"
. I James was astonished. Mr. Pevensey
receiving no answer, thrust the man aside, ,
marched past him,; and entered the parlor. :'
He was past being astonished now, and
simply regarded the furniture of the room
with mild wonder. ,
7 "I'll just wait here till somebody comes;
and then maybe the devil wont be to pay,
O, no." ; s-yy
He could hear footsteps and whisperings
in another room. j Evidently. James had
aroused the household. After some time
the door was timidly opened, and Miss
Emory , peered in. , Seeing " Mr. Pevensey
she rushed in, and, flinging herself upon
him, said, hysterically: 7 -.;-:.',,.;

drunk!" 'TV;'; .. .'. 'M M .''
Mr. Pevensey was utterly overcome. Dis
engaging himself as quickly as possible and
somewhat rudely from his lovely burden, he
stood gazing at Miss Emory in blank amaze
ment, muttering to himself, "Well, I'm
bio wed!" and sundry other ejaculations ex
pressive of his astonishment at this unprec
edented and unlooked-for procedure on the
part of one whom he regarded as ' a total
stranger. v-v" y '.
"Now, my fine woman, what's the mean
ing of all this? 'Whose house do you think
this is, anyway? : Where is my wife and
daughter?" • = ■
.; Miss Emory shrank back and gazed at
him in horror, ; exclaiming: "He's intoxi
cated! - Penny's intoxicated! James, put
him out!" 777 -7 7.0777
/James made his appearance and eyed Mr.
Pevensey furtively, but made no movement
toward • carrying • s out the order, evidently
fearing that he would not be equal to the
task. -■■ ■ ■'; y ~ iMM; :-.- -
y "O, it's fall right," 7 said Mr. Pevensey.
"I'll go, but I'll - come back, and, what's
more, with the arm of the law." Saying
which, Mr. Pevensey, holding his own arm
aloft to emphasize; and illustrate his words,
strode from the apartment, y
It is plain to the reader by this time that
the ghost had executed his strange purpose
and to Mr. Pevensey's extreme bewilder
ment. ■ >' * \ ''' • >1"
A well-dressed young woman passed him
at a comer where he stood gazing vacantly
and furtively about him whom he recognized
at once as his daughter. He started after
her rapidly, at the same time calling to her
to stop.7 She turned hurriedly and looked
at him,' then walked faster, and as he in
creased his pace and seemed determined to
overtake her she gave a scream and in a
moment^ Mr. Pevensey was roughly seized
by a passing policeman and borne away in
spite of his .protestations that it was his
daughter, and he : merely wanted to speak
with her " a \ moment. His sullen manner
was not softened as he was thrust into the
somewhat narrow ■ and uncomfortable room
appointed for such characters at the station
house and informed that his trial would oc
cur at 9 o'clock in the morning. -7 '
. * - * \ * ,; * * * *
As on the : previous morning, Mr. Peven
sey, was awakened by a sunbeam streaming
on his face; but instead of j sifting through
the rich curtains of ; his own apartments as
it did then, it slanted between the rusty bars
of an ordinary cell. He surveyed the sur
roundings with even more wonder than he
did before, and as he realized where he was
and caught the offensive odor of stale beer
which pervaded" the atmosphere of the cell
he began to be indignant. Then the truth
began to dawn on his mind and the episode
with his old friend i Pembroke recurred to
him like a nightmare, while his confused
recollection of seeing Miss Emory some
where, and a dim idea that he had offended
her, did not J add "■ to the ■ pleasure of his
thoughts.- y However, there was nothing to
do but wait for the jailer to come to him.
Nine o'clock came at last, and, humiliating
as" it was,' he had to go i through the regular
.form of examination;' and when at '.:. last he
was set at liberty — having paid his fine and
listened impatiently to the sage counsel of
the magistrate— he turned his . steps toward
his residence ; once more, ruminating on the
way with frowning brows. He applied his
key and entered 'as usual. The first thing
that attracted v his - notice was a delicately
tinted, perfumed lying on; the table/
He flushed* slightly, picked it up, and read
the following; ;.:•; ;
: Mb. Pevensey: After . what Occurred
last night you can hardly expect me to re
gard you as I should my* future y husband;
therefore 1 7 release '; you from • all 7 claims I
may have had 7 upon ; you, and wish you to
regard me hereafter merely as your friend.
[Mm. MM : yMy,<MM 'MM -- : .;'^ayE_!oßY.' : 7
He stared at it for a few moments, and,
happening to. glance up,hls eyes encountered
„the doubtful figure of his unearthly tormen
tor, Pemftroke. a book from the
. table-he hurled4t^^aU^«ilgh>at_,em

nothing. there.--: 77 My'y ''.';■ MMy
"Ha! ha!" cackled Pembroke. "There's
no use in your trying that, Pen; I'm nothing
but a spirit,- you know!" 7 ; „> . - ! v
7 7' 'Confound you for a knave of his Satanic
majesty's tenth legion, 7 then replied". Pe
vensey, :: in baffled rage. 7 :';.'; • -
"Come, come-- now, Pen, I didn't mean
to. Ididn'twantto, in fact/ you know you
made me do it ,; Be reasonable,' Pen!"' .
,f 'Reasonable!',' he cried fiercely; "be rea
sonable! ; Yes, that's ; good, y I must say
kind of you to Asi there,'' knowing ,yl >- can't
shoot you or kick your if I ': try, having
deliberately ruined my name in town and
caused a break', between' us. You know
whom I mean."
y "At least, then, hear me out, Pen, 7 for I
can't linger here . much longer; , I.; must : be
back at Jupiter at precisely noon,' and it is
11 now, you see. Now, Pen, I'm sorry this
has happened as it has, but if you 7 will go
to Miss Emory and explain the matter, to
her, lay all the blame on me— l can stand it,
you know— she is too sensible a girl not to
forgive you. \ Trust me, Peri; and try It." -'■■
With these words the thin visitor became
thinner still, and soon was quite 7 dissolved.
7 Mr. Pevensey gazed at the v chair" , wh eh
he had lately occupied for ; some moments
blankly, nnd then meditated;.' "I might as
well after all. do as he suggested. It can't
be any worse than it is now." Accordingly,
after making an elaborate toilet, he repaired
to Miss Emory's house, from which, some
hours later, came forth, walking with
an elastic step and smiling serenly, although
it must be confessed ,- his necktie and'coat
collar were rather disordered.; And even to
this day Mrs. Pevensey is' not certain
whether her husband was under the in
fluence of Pembroke — or whisky.
Sweet Scents and Lovely Odors Now
Most Favored In Society.
Interviews- With a Perfumer and
Prominent Society Lady.
Nearly every lady uses some sort of , per
fumery; her odor case is an important if not
indispensable adjunct to her complete and
satisfactory toilet It was only a few years
ago that some one declared that the use of
perfume was plebeian; that none but the
French peasantry in Europe employed it
generally. The idea became American, and
for a time no woman who aimed at . social
position dared 'commit the indiscretion of
using any kind of odor. "It's use is a
practical admission of uncleanliness," y said
Fashion, and what lady would dare make
that admission? 7 ,
"A great change has taken place in /re
spect to the use of odors," said a prominent
perfumer to a reporter the other day. ' 'The
perfume trade was never more brisk than
now and it is constantly on the increase." y
"What odor is the most popular?" asked
the reporter. 7 . y My-yM*
"That all depends upon the purchaser.
Ladies do not buy odors at random, for their
use has become a distinguishing feature of.
their toilet. Why, just think of " it; what
would be your impression of a well-dressed
woman redolent with the fumes of pat
chouli? You would think her a woman of
loud tastes, if not a fast one, and ' your
judgment would be correct." 7-7> ■
"It is possible, then, to . locate a lady's
social position by means of one's olfactor
ies?" 7-. MMM y 7'7-'. '-•'.--.'
"So far as her natural tastes and tenden
cies are \ concerned, yes; a lady of delicate
and refined tastes will use a delicate odor in
perfuming herself."
"What are considered the most delicate
odors, such as a lady of sensitive tastes
would select?" _- 777 -7 1
"One of the most fashionable • perfumes
now used by ladies in the best social circles
is one of a very faint but sweet odor. Those
perfumers and chemists who have the select
trade sell this perfume most exclusively.
Next to it, however, are ranked those made
from two favorite spring flowers."
"What are distinguishing characteristics
of the perfume of which you speak that
makes it so popular with society women?"
"Well, it is an extremely, delicate odor or
combination of odors, which produces upon
the senses a feeling of delight, such as is ex
perienced by inhaling the odors wafted from
a garden full of flowers. ; The perfume is a
bouquet, that is a mixture of many different
floral extracts." 77 y y 7:7 77 y 7
"What other odors or perfumes would it
be safe for a lady to use without incurring a
risk of being set back in the social scale?' '
"Perfumes classify their odors according
to their rank; this list is based upon, the
fineness and delicacy of the different per
fumes from the manufacturer's point of
view. There are eighteen perfumes of the
first rank.
"A second list, which occupies similar
rank to the first, but which contains odors
for which special tastes must be cultivated,
comprises eight perfumes. Some of the
odors in this list are the most expensive of
any in use. The attar of one in particular
costs $50 per ounce. Yet a great many
people cannot use it; it is an odor which
one must cultivate a taste for. Then there
is another list of four odors which rank well
and whose use is a matter of taste. Musk
is a perfume which few ladies use, not that
fashion has uttered its edict against it . so
much as the fact that the odor is disagree
able to many. It is' the most lasting 7 odor
in the world." ; 'yyM'y 77y;7::7' ;.:-7 :
A prominent society woman: was seen.
"Why do you use perfumery?" bluntly in
terrogated the reporter.
"As well ask why do I wear bracelets,
rings or other articles of jewelry. It is
custom, I suppose." i*% Myy :
The lady desired to know the object of
the reporter in thus catechising her before
consenting to answer further questions.
She readily, however, accepted his explana
tion, and volunteered this information:
"I think the average woman who aspires to
an observance of society's demand pays as
much attention to the selection of her per
fumes as to that of almost any article of
dress. A lady should use odors of such a
quality or combination and in such a man
ner that a pleasant perfume may be detected
by those in her vicinity without their being
able to detect what it is or whence, it pro
ceeds. Nothing is" more vulgar than for a
woman to half stifle those. in her presence
with, it may be, some y obnoxious perfume.
Such persons should be assigned a separate
apartment where they may enjoy their own
fumes without disgusting others. 1 have
used the favorite odor you name,; but am
partial to another, which is extremely deli
cate and not sufficiently, powerful to offend
the most sensitive organs of smell." y 7 '
' 'How do you use perfumery to secure the
best. effect?" '
•' "I keep several pieces of pumice stone
which I occasionally saturate with per
fumery and place them ' in my wardrobe,
glove-boxes, &c. I find this a very simple,
easy and efficacious way of distributing the
odor evenly and preventing an excess in
quantity." y -v-'
From the above testimony it is seen that
it is eminently proper to use perfume in the
toilet, that care should be exercised in the
selection of perfumery and that it should be
judiciously administered. - -
Pompadour designs are very fashionable.
Stylish parasols are of black satin with
moss-green transfer designs. A deep Chan
tilly lace surrounds the shade.
Some new parasols and sunshades have
been brought out in changeable silks and in
plain silks lined with bright colors. . 7. • '.\ ;-.
A sunshade for the races is of white tulle
lace. The tulle is draped over each whale
bone and the shade is not lined. The han
dle is of natural wood. 7y
; Pretty but not useful are those gay para
sols covered with China silk handkerchiefs,
having a border eof ruffled 7 Orienial - lace.
These are for the seaside and country. ;
Another parasol is : of old . brocade on a
moss-green ground - lined ; with : pink • lace.
Around the parasol is a ruffle of moss-green
lace. . The handle is of carved ivory. ; .
'■ Among the most showy parasols is one of
- cream silk worked with < red ; chenille dots.
Around the : border ; is i a ■■ rich ( cream silk
