From tlie ''Dynamiter," by Jt. L. Stevenson . Our objective was the effigy of Shakes peare in Leicester Square; a spot, I think, admirably chosen, from tbe fact that the seats in tbe immediate neighborhood are often thronaed by children, errand boys, unfortunate young ladies of the poorer class, and infirm old men all classes making a direct appeal to public pity, and therefore suitable with our designs. M'Quire, with a radiant prevision of the event, drew merrily nearer. Suddenly his eye alighted on the burly form or a po liceman, standing hard by the elligy in an attitude of watch. MV bold compan ion paused; be Ittokecl aliout bran closely; here and Uiere. at different points of the inclosure, other men stood or loitered, afs fectiug an abstraction, feigning to gaze upon tbe shrubs, feigning lo talk, feign ing to be 'weary and to rest upon tbe benches. M'Guire was no child in these affairs, he instantly divined one of the plots of the Machiavellian Gladstone. . Plainly, our Leicester Square design had been divulged; the government had craftily tilled tbe place wilU minions; and our emissary, without other aid or pro tection than the simple apparatus in bis bag, found himself confronted by force; brutal force; that strong hand which was a character of the ages of oppression. Should he venture to deposit the ma chine, it was almost certain that he would be observed and arrested; a cry would aiise; and there was just a fear that tbe police might not be present in sufficient force to protect him from the savagery of the mob. The scheme must be de layed, lie stood with his bag on bis arm, pretending to survey the front of tbe Al Lambra, w hen there flashed into bis inind a thought to appeal the bravest. The machine was set; at the appoiuled hour it must explode; and how, iu the interval, was he to be rid of it? Put yourself, I besceech you, into the body of that patriot. There he was, friendless and helpless, a man in the very flower of lift, for be is not forty; with long years of happiness before bun; anil now condemned, in one moment, to cruel and revolting death by dynamite! The square, be said, went round him like a tuumathrope; he saw the Alhambra leap into the air like a balloon, and reeled against the railing. It is probable he tainted. When he came to himself, a constable had him by the arm. "My God!" he cried. "You seem to be ufiwell, sir," said the hireling. ,, . ' ' "I feel better now," cried poorM'Ouire A thought struck him in Green street, like a dart through his liver; suppose it were the hour already. . lie stopped as "though he had been shot, and plucked his watch out. There was a howling in bis ears, as loud as a winter tempest; his sight was now obscured as it by a cloud, now, as by a lightning flash, would show him the very Dust upon the street: But so brief were these intervals of vision, and so violently did tbe watch vibrate in his hands, that it was impossible to dislin guish the numbers on the dial, lie cov ered bis eyes for a few seconds; and in that space, it seemed to him that he bad fallen to be a man of ninety. When he looked again, tbe watch plate had grown legible; he had twenty minutes. Twenty minutes, and no plan! Green street at that time wss empty and he now observed a little girl of about six drawing near to him, and, as she came, kicking in front of her, as children will, a piece of wood. She sane, too; ami something in her accent recalling him to the past, produced a sudden Clearness in I his mind. Here was a God-send oppor tunity! "My dear," said he, "would you like a present of a pretty bag?" The child cried aloud with joy and put out her hands to take it. She had looked first at the bag, like a true child; but most unfortunately, before she had yet re ceived the fatal gift, her eyes fell directly on M'Guire, and no sooner had she seen the poor gentleman's face, than she screamed out and leaped backward, as though she bad seen the devil. Almost at the same moment, a woman appeared upon the threshold of a neighboring shop, and called upon the child in angci . "Come here, colleen," she said, "and don't be plaguing the poor old gentle man!" With that nlie reentered the house, and tbe child followed her, sobbing aloud. With the loss of this hoie M'Guire's reason swooned within him. When next he awoke to consciousness, he was stand ing before St. Martin's iu tbe Fields, wav ering like a drunken man; tho passers by regarding Umi with eyes in which he read, as in a 'glass, an image of the terror and horror that dwell within his own. "Home!" thought M'Guire, "what t derision!" What home was there for him the victim of philanthropby? He thought of his old mother, of his happy youth; of tbe hideous, rending pang of the explo sion, of the possibility that he might not be killed, that he might be cruelly man gled, crippled tor lite, condemned to life long pains, blinded perhaps, and almost bu rely deafened . From his dread glance into tbe future his thoughts returned at a bound upon the present. How had he wandered there? and how long O heavens! how long bad he been about it? He pulled out his watch; and found that but three minutes had elapsed. It seemed to bright a thing to be believed. He glanced at the church clock; and sure enough, it marked lour minutes faster than the watch . Of all that he endured, M'Guire tie clares that pang was the most desolate Till then he baa had one friend, one counsellor, in whom he plennrily trusted: by whose advertisement, he numbered the minutes that remained to him of life: on whose sure testimony he could tell when the time was come to risk the last adventure, to cast the bag away from him, and take no flight. And now in what was lie to place reuancer Uis watcb was slow; it might be losing time; If so, in what degree? What limit could he set to its derangement? and how much was it possible for a watch to lose in thirty min utes? Five? ten? fifteen? It might be so already it seemed years since he had left St. James s hall on this so promising en' ter prise; at any moment, then, the blow was to be looked for. As he was moving forward past the National Gallery, in a medium, it seemed of greater rarity than an ordinary air. there slipped into his mind the recollec tion of a certain entry in Whitcomb street hard by, where he might perhaps lay aown ms tragic cargo unremarked. Thither, then, he bent his. steps, seeming, as he went, to float above tbe pavement; and there in the mouth of the entry, he found a man in a sleeved waistcoat, gravely chewing a straw. He passed him by, and twice patrolled the entry, scout in? for tbe barest chance; but the man had faced about and continued to observe him curiously . Another hope was gone. M'Guire re tbe wondering eyesof the man in tha sleevea Waistcoat He once more consult. ed bis watch; there was but fourteen min utes left to him. At the corner of tbe Haymarket, he hailed a hsnson cab; pimped in; bade the fellow drive him to a part of the Em bankment, which be named; as soon as the vehicle was in motion, concealed the bag as completely as he could under the vantage ef the aproB,; and once more drew oat his watch. So he rode for five interminable minutes, his heart in his mouth at every jolt, scarce able to pos sess his terrors, yet fearing to wake tbe attention of tbe driver by too obvious a change ef plan, and willing, if possible, to leave him time to forget tbe Gladstone bag. r . At length, at the head of some stairs on the embankment, he hailed; the cab was stopped, and he alighted with how glad a heart! he thrust bis hand into his pocket. All was now over; he had saved his life: not that alone, but he bad engi neered a striking act of dynamite; for what could be more pictorial, what more I pfTactive. than the exolosion of a hansom I cab as it spread rapidly along the streets of London . He fell in one pocket, then n another. The most crushing seizure of despair descended on his soul, and struck into abject dumbness, he stared upon the driver. He had not one penny . Hello," said the driver, "dont seem well.-'-.V Lost - my money," said M'Guire, in tones so faint and strange that they sur prised his hearing. . The man rooked through tbe trap. "1 dessay," said he; "You've left your bag." MGuire half unconsciously fetched it out, and looking on that black continent at arm's length,, withered inwardly and fell his features sharpen as with mortal sickness. "This is not mine," said he. Your last fare must have left it You had better lake it to the station . " "Now look here," returned the cabman, are you off your chump or am I?" "Well, then, 1 11 tell you what," ex claimed M'Guire, "you take it for your fare." "Oh, I dessay," replied the driver. 'Auylhiug else? What's in the bag? Open it and let me see.'' No, no," returned MGuire. "Oh, no, not that. It's a surprise; it's piepared expressly; a surprise for honest cabmen 'No you don't, said the mau. alight ing from his perch, and coming very close to the unhappy patriot "You're either going to pay my fare, or get in again aud drive to the ofllce. It was at this supreme hour of his dis tress that M'Guire spied the stout figure of one Godall, a tobacconist of Rupert street, drawing near along tbe embank ment. "Thank God!" lie critid. "Here comes a friend of mine; I'll borrow." And he dashed to meet the tradesman. "Sir, said he, "Mr. Godall, 1 have dealt with you yon doubtless know my face ca lamities for which I caiinot blame myself have overwhelmed me.l Oh, sir, for the love of innocence, for the sake of the bonds of humanity, and as you hope for mercy at the throne of grace, lend me two and six! '1 do not recognize your face." replied Mr. Godall; "but I remember the cut of your-beard, which I have the misfortune to dislike. Here, sir, is a sovereign, which I very willingly advance to you on the single condition that you shave your chin. M'Guire grasped the coin without a word, cast it to Ihe cabman, calling out to him to keep the change; bounded down the steps, flung the bag far forth into the river, and fell headlong after it. He was plucked from a watery grave, it is believed, bv the hands of Mr. Godall. Even as he was being hoisted, dripping, to the shore, a dull and choked explosion shook the solid masonry of the embank ment, and far out in the river a moment ary fountain rose and disappeared Mexican Editorial Excursion St. Lwcis, June 27.

Mr. Rpringer is working bard to get Colleotor n heeler, at Springfield, removed. He be gan early in his efforts to oust Wheeler, but at tbe start met with the opposition of CoL Morrison, who did not want any of the important federal offices filled until after the senatorship was decided. That has been settled for some weeks, and Wheeler still holds on, and Mr. Springer has grown impatient at tbe delay, and has oorae down here to see what can be done to hurry thinjs. up. Maj. Connolly, he says, Was removed for not prosecuting heeler, and yet v heeler holds on. Ibis strikes Mr. Springer as a very curious anomaly. Mr. Cooper, of Fekin, who is Mr. Springer's candidate for the collectorship, is here, and, although no assuranoes have been given, Mr. Springer is so far satisfied with tbe re sult of his mission that he intends to return home in a day or two. Mr. rlpringer says there are three opinions of the administration. Republicans who are in office think it is moving too fast in the way of removals. Tbe Democrats who want to get in ottloe think it is going too slow. The people, Republicans and Demo crats, who are not after office, think the ad ministration is doinz just right, and, al though the Democrats of the npnngneld ills trict have got nothing yet, they are waiting contentedly, and are perfectly satisfied with tbe caution which characterizes the move nwnts of the administration.

A repre-entative of tbe United Press states on direct information that President Cleveland and (Secretary Rayard are on the very best of terms and that it is frequently the cae that the two gentlemen sit together until i or 3 o'clock in tbe morning discuss ing state department matters, The presi dent, it can be authoritatively stated, i- entlrely satisfied with Mr. BayarJ, and the greatest harmony prevails between the two gentlemen.

H VALE AND HARVARD MEASURE STRENGTH ON THE WATER Harvard Takes the Lead from the Start, Willie Tale Comes in Fifteen lengths Behind Unprecedented Interest ; ' In the Event. T '. New London, Conn., June 27. Not in the aistory of Yale-Harvard aquatics baa tbe interest manifested previous to a race been wrought to such a high state of excitement was before Friday's contest, iutrly Thursday night all the hotels were over crowded, and lodgings were not to be bad at any price.- Tbe night trains from Boston and New York and the New York boats largely increased the number of visitors, and the morning trains from all di rections came in crowded. New Haven seut over an excursion train of fifteen cars. The betting, which, after the.Coluinbia's race, changed from odds on Yale to even money, and then to odds on Harvard, at 10 0 clock was about even. An unusually large amount of money had been put up on tne result of tbe race. - Tbe hnal betting was about even, although some en thusiastic Harvard men gave odds rather than not place tbeir money. At 8 o'clock the water was irt excellent vuiiuiuiiiii, iudi uoing uut b, sitgui, rippie and very light southwest wind. As the time for the race approached the excitement became intense, especially among tbe Yale men, over a report tunt Capt Hau ders was ill and could not row. A Yale olli cial who was seen on tbe subjeet continued tbe report of the captain's illness, but added that although Flanders was sick it had been deoided that it would be better for him to row than to make a change in the stroke. This story changed tbe betting to 10l) to $S0 in Harvard a favor, and the Harvard nieu were furnishing all the money that Vale was calling for. About V:5 a. m. the breeze freshened con siderably and blew almost square across tbe course. This was consider! an advantage for Yale. Tbe water had grown quite rough at 10:15 o'clock. Tbe Harvard boat came out at ll:tl'i, Yale following one minute later, and both crews paddled leisurely to the starting point At 11 ;i!5 the word was given, aud Yale took t lie water very quickly, and obtained a lead of about two feet. Harvard settled to her work, how ever, and at fifty yards from the start had drawn up even and was beginning to forge ahead. Ill less than o K yards Harvard Bhowod clear water between herself and Yale, and Yale never got near ber again. At this time both craws were pulling 40 strokes.
