"Did you gain any in health? asked
tbe other.
"Jfo, I cahl say as I.did," was the re

"Perhaps not."
"Did your husband get rid of his

"Oh.no."
"Then, to sum the whole thing up,
did you really gain anything by going?"
"Certainly, we did. My husband

John Taylor, head of the Mormon

the effect that those of the brethren who
held church offices of high or low degree
and have not obeyed the celestial laws,
must now go into polygamy or go out

of the penitentiary or the wrath of Boss
Taylor. There is a flutter among the
brethren.

and the other is dying.
Leroy Beautien, a famous economis',
writina-to the Journal des Debats, de
clares the financial system of France,
including the three elements of taxes,

A draft on the ministerial statement
to be presented at the opening of the
French chambers has been made public.
It says tbe government is determined to
suppress all an ti republican manifesta
tions, whether legitimists or anarchists.
It also promises measures to improve
railroad communications and to better
the condition of agricultural laborers.
It expresses satisfaction at the financial
condition of the country and progress of
organization of the army. Their foreign
relations, it will say, are satisfactory and
the foreign policy of France will be one
neither of subserviency nor aggressive.

and two girls died, and at the close of
the fiscal year 188 boys and 108 girls

Indians in Alaska are troublesome and
aggressive. They seized the boats and
whaling gear of a whaling company at
Kilhsnoo and took two white prisoners

HOW qCEDLlSGTOJT WAd.SKXT B0WJI.
Charley Qnedlingtcn was in a thought
ful mood. This was an unusual thing
for him. As ? a general rule he didn't
think; but the most rackety and mis
chievous and debt-incurring, aon-
baiting undergraduates have their mo
ments of thougnt, tnougn xuey may aiu-
diously . cenceal them. And unariey s
thoughts, this sunny May morning, as he
glanced into the blazing hot quadrangle,
waiting until it snouia oe nme iu jr
take ot Gordon's luncheon, were not
very pleasant. "If yoar name comes be
fore u? again," the Dean had said
grimlv, with his sternest aspect and
the old gentleman, the jolliest of talka
tive hosts at dinner, eonid be very grim
and stern about 12 o'clock in the day
"if your name comes before us again,
Mr. QuedUagton, wall have no alter
native but to Bend' you R wir for a con
siderable period, f You are never out of
trouble, either in college or in the city.
This ia the last time you will be warned,
sir. Consider yourself gated alter six for
the rest of the term."
"And, by Jove, I believe the old gen
tleman means itl" ruminated Charley,
Stretching his legs upon the window
seat, and puffing his cigarette smoke into
the recesses of the sheltering sun-blind.
"As sure as fate, I shall get into a row
before the end of the term, though it is
only a fortnight off. There is Cumming's
wine to-night; and they'll go and draw
the busar afterward, and then the' fat
i will In in the fire: for whether I am
there or 6afe in bed, the porters will
swear to Mr. Quodlington small blame
tliAml" And he lauehed with a keen
appreciation of his own bad eminence.
"Umphf it's all very well; bat if it comes
to rustication, won't the governor be
savage? He's a jolly old boy, and he'll
swallow the bills with hardly a grimace;
but this affair wouldn't be quite a coat
ing of sugar to help them on their way."
Charley's forebodings were noi wiui-
out a more than usual share oi proDaDii
itv. There was not muoh chance of the
most popular ana resuess oi di.. a.ww o
men keeping out of a row for the re
maining weeks of the summer term. The
dons had been very long-suffering with
him. There was so much good in him
at bottom, the great luminary said in
flnnfldftriftu after dinner, and the lesser
lights agreed with him. He looked so
young; a dark-complexioned, handsome
fellow, hardly as old as his years, and
with but the faintest symptoms of a
moustache, to which only his Bcout
knew how much care and time were de
voted. He appeared quiet enough, and
not very strong. Appearances, however,
are deceitful; and Charley was not long
in impressing his set with his utterly
thoughtless,- reckless gayety, which yet
had not a grain of real evil at the bottom
of it. His father, the Archdeacon of
LoamfoH,' was a rich man, and a famous
pillar of the church. Ubaney wouia oe
well enough off some day; so that the
mere getting into debt would hurt no
one very much. But the Archdeacon
had passed through his college career
without a reproacn, ana was a isreav
preacher, of note elsewhere than in eccle
sifStical circles. It would be a terrible
thing if the son of such a man should be
put to open shame, ana seni aown uae
the sOn of any Godless Earl or weak-
minded bishop.
Hullo. Charley r cried a jovial young
voice from the quad below, at this point
of his meditations: "you II Dreamasi
with me to-morrow? Tbe last train lor
Watlingbury is at 12:30."
"Ini not coming, answered tnaney,
rather shortly.
"You re not coming? cnea nis inter
rogator. "What is up now? Jtiut wait a
ihinmte, and 1 11 oe with you. j
And up the echoing wooden staircase,
so shady and cool in comparison with
the blaza aud sunshine outside, 'came
Cummings, three steps at a time, and
dashed into Charley s room, i
"What is up now? ' he repeated.
"The Dean has sent for me, and says
he'll send me down if my name goes up
again this term." ,f
"Pheugh! that is bad. Ii would not
suit your book with the Governor, would
it. Charlev? .But he has said the same
often before."
"He means it this time; and he has
gated me after six for a fortnight.";'
"Gordon, what do you think is the
latest?" cried Cummings, leaning out of
the window and accosting a man in a
many-colored coat who was leaning out
a ground-floor window not far off.
"Quedglington has been sent for, and
gated until the end of the term. He
says be won't come to Watlingbury to
morrow.
"Gammon! I'll come up and draw the
badger. What is gating?
Gordon should nave Known, ior
Charley excepted, no one at St. Aldate's
had more experience oi lt. watling
bury races were strictly forbidden to the
undergrates of the University; and even
the somewhat lax rules ot t. Aidate s
were upon this point as strict as those
of more learned colleges. . The arrival of
the trains from Watlingbury, at any rate
of those late in the day, was attened by
a proctor and bulldog", to see if any of
his flock had been astray; while a watch
was also kept upon tbe roads which led
from the city in that direction. ;
"Look here!" cried the tempter, clad
for the occasion in the flame-colored bla
zon of the Honorable Richard Gordon,
"if we get back by the four o'clock train
we shall see all the best of the fan, es
cape the proctors, who will not be on the
look-out until the six o'elock train, and
save Charley's gate." !
"It is all very well for yon fellows
to risk it, but I can not afford to be sent
down."
"Poohl not a chance of your being
sent down! It an t like you to funk.
What a capital time we had there last
year! 1 And my cousin has a horse
running and we can get a tip from him."
: "Are you sura there is a four o'clock
train?" . .
"Certainlv. Come, that is a good
fellow."
"Then, by Jovs, I will go! ened
Charley. ,
; And as no promises are so well kept
as those which please ourselves,' he kept
his word to the letter. He was too
young to find the pleasure turn to dust
and ashes. " He thoroughly enjoyed his
afrnoon on Watingbury race course;
and for ones the tip, wonderful U re
late, was the strong one, and the affair
went off capitally.
"My boy," said Gordon, taking him a
little aside about a quarter to four, "you
have just time to catch your train. We
will risk it; but if you are not a fool
you'll be off."
''I'm not going," cried Charley reck
lessly. .
"Then you are a fool," answered the
other; "take my advice, and go."
It was such a rare thing for Gordon to
give advice of this kind that our hero
took it as that of a good angel, who, in
stead of the suggestive flame-colored
blazon of yesterday, had assumed, with
much appropriateness, a fashionable
frock-coat, of Quaker-like gray. Quedg
lington reached the station just ia time
to tumble into a first class carriage
already pretty full. Many of its occu
pants looked as ii tne ticseis in tneir
pockets might be of any hue save white,
which was, and is, the color ot first class
tickets upon the Watlingbury branch
lins. Charley looked them over with
the superciliousness of St. Aldate's, and
came to the conclusion that, if under
graduates at all, they hailed from some
college more than a Sabbath day's jour
ney from the centre of unni versify life.
They had lunched well, and were loud
and noisy, as was Charley sometimes;
but, somehow, their loudness and noisi
ness were not like tbe same things at
St. Aldate's, and Quedglington regarded
them with much the same disapproval
that filled the Dean of St. Aldate's when
brought face to fac with his, Charley's
vagaries.
His gaze settled at last on a face in the
far corner which, under the circum
stances, caused him some surprise. It
was so decidedly out of place. It was
that of a rather pretty girl, with afair
baired, graceful little head, set off by a
small gray hat. It was a faae formed to
be either gravely sweet or coquettihhly
smiling; but now it was a frightened,
piteous little face. The sudden irruption
of the noisy and excited crew into her
carriage was evidently not to her liking;
bat as she was sitting at the end furthest
from the platform, it was no easy matter
to extricate herself. "She's a governess,
and a very pretty one," thought Charley.
"Certainly she is traveling first-class, so
she must be a Newnham or Girton girl.
They get a lot of money. She is too
plainly dressed to be swell. I wish I
had some sisters who wanted a governess."
It was not Qaedlington only whose at
tention she attracted. The young men,
their bets settled, turned toward her
more of their regards than was polite or
pleasant. From this they advanced to
making eulogistic remarks upon her ap
pearance to one another, and generally
to talking rathtr in away that made
Quedlington's faoe hot with angs By
the time the train stopped at the junc
tion Charley was on the point of inter
fering. The yonng lady rose, however,
and, taking up her cloak, stood prepared
to leave the carriage. Her tormentors
made way for her not an inch, but sat
with their knees meeting across the pas
sage.
"Would you be kind'enough to lfit me
pass?" she said, bravely, in quite a
steady voice. But they were heated
with excitement and the wine they had
taken at luncheon. Charley bad come
to the conclusion by this time that they
were not Varsity men at all, and we will
hope and trust that he was right. At
anv rate they sat still.
"I think," said one, with mock polite
ness, "that tne ticket you showed at
Watlingbury was for our destination.
We do not change here."
"And we really cannot spare so pretty
a lace, we are nopiug w mio
pleasure of Beeing you home."
So the cirl was indeed a prisoner; the
noise upon the platform made it impos
sible for her to get help from thence.
Her eyes wandered around the flushed
faces and rested upon Charley's, flushed
to, but from a different cause.
She saw that he was not of the others.
"Don't let us have any of this rot!" he
said quietly. "Let this lady pass, if you
please."
They all turned npon him, as he rose
and with some roughness pushed two or
three of them aside. The girl just
touched his hand, stepped lightly past
them, and was out of the carriage in a
moment before they could recover from
their surprise. . .
"Confound youl What business is it
of youis?" cried one, standing up and
catchine hold of his collar. Charley did
not answer in words; his blood was up,
and as the other maintained bis hold, he
struck him with all his strength and
some little science between the eyes.
Ths man fell back among his fellows,
and all rose up and hit out at Charley
rather wildly, who warded off a blow or
two, and then stepped lightly backward
on to the platform to avoid the others.
He was only just in time; before they
could follow him the train began to
move; a perter, who, in the hubbub of

Charlsy, standing upon the plattorm,
saw of his opponents, was a group of
angry faces framed in tbe quickly mov

turned round with a little laugh of
triumph, and saw his damsel, so lately
in distress, standing at his elbow. She
was much the moro self-possessed of the
two now.
"Thank you so much," she said pret
UIt: "it was foolish of me to be afraid;
bat they were really rude, were they
nst? I m afraid now that I have
caused you to be left behind; it does not
matter much to me, but it may to you.
"Not a bit," answered he, with a
vivacious mendacity which impressed
her greatly. Yet h was not unmindful
that now he could not get back to college
until after six o'clock, and would cer
tainly be reported for breaking his gate,

"They were awfnl brutes, were they not?
I am very glad I was thers to b of some
assistance to you." '
"And I cordially share in that feel
ing," she said, with a laugh of pleasure
at the thought of the blow he had
struck. "I am going to see same friends
who live here; but I hope I may have
some farther opportunity of thanking
you. I am greatly obliged to your

Charley's faoe, held out a little gloved
hand, and was gone; quite conscious,
however, that the young fellow's eyes
were fixed upon her as she passed out of
the station, and was probably not ill
pleased by the fact.
She was gone, and he was left to kick
his heels for a couple of hours in a
dreary station, and get what amusement
he could out of the refreshment-room
and the bookstall. In time the next
train came, and he rejoined his aston
ished party.
"Your name and college, sir, if you
please?"
"Quedglington, St. Aldate's." The
proctor had known quite well both his
name and college, but preferred to go
through the old formula. So a fine was
tbe least to be expected as the result of
the Watlingbury trip, in addition to the
penalty to be paid for the broken gate,
of the nature of which there could be
little doubt, after tbe Dean's solemn
warning. - And, therefore, when his
scout, on calling him next morning, said
that the Dean requested the pleasure of
his company at twelve o'clock, Charley
felt that he might as well tell Bunn to
begin packing his things. A breakfast
with Gordon, however, cheered him up
a little, but the momentary gayety sank
down again at the door of the Dean's
house. "What will the Governor say?
he groaned. When he was ushered in
he saw no sign of relenting in the Dean's
face.
"You were not in college, yesterday,
Mr. Quedglington, by the time at which,
for you, the gate closes. I am also in
formed that you returned from Watling
bury by a train arriving after that time.
The doings at Watlingbury were dis
graceful, ir, as I have good reason to
know. I cannot imagine you have any
thing to "urge." Charley regarded the
third button of the diagonal waistcoat
with a stoical calmness. - "After the
solemn warning we gave you only two
days ago, I think I am exercising some
leniency in merely sending you down un
til the end of this term. You will go
down to-day. Good morning."
Quedglington, of St. Aidate, was not
the man to plead, even if he could think
of anything to say, in mitieration of sen
tence. He turned to leave with a silent
bow, when the further door"of the library
was opened, and a voice he knew ex
claimed:
"I beg your pardon, uncle; I thought
vou were alone.
Charlev looked up in astonishment. It
was his friend of the train.
"Good gracious!" said she, recogniz
ing him at once, and comma: in; "1 am
so clad vou are a St. Aldgate's man. Ua
cle, this is the gentleman who interfered
on my behalf yesterday, missing his train
through his kindness. Perhaps you
will thank him."
"It was nothing at all " murmured
Charlev.
"This is very remarkable " said the
Dean, in the accents of Dominie Samp-

Mr. Quedglington; I am greatly obliged
to you greatly. Will you be kind

will talk about it again?"
In a few minutes they were alone
again.
"So that was how you missed the train?"
asked the Head.
Charley nodded.
"Well, I am greatly obliged to you.
You are an honor to the college in
some respects. But of course I can
make no alteration upon this account.
You had no business going to Watling
bury, or returning from it. Sol must
say good morning."
Even Charley thought the Dean was
treating him cavalierly, but he was not
one to make much of his services. He
made for the door.
"Ah, yeB," said the Dean, when his
hand was already upon it; "do you know

not. He has asked me to send him a rod

That was how Charley Quodlington
was sent down. Some people are in

that, to this day, the venerable Arch

A 8an Man Treated for Two Tears as
a Lunatic. .
William Keating was sent to Ward's
Island asylum as. a lunatic about two
years ago, ami has since been kept there.
He wrote letters to persons in , this city
and an application for his release, on the
ground that he was a sane man and had
been sent to the asylum by malignant
relatives, was made to ' the Supreme
court. The application was denied, but
the case was sent before Commissioners
and a sheriff's jury. The inquiry before
this tribunal, for the determination of
Keating's sanity, took place yesterday. '
F. S. Middiebrook, a former assisant
keeper in ths asylum, testified that ha
had known Keating for many months,
and had made up his mind that he was a
sane man. and bad so reported to JJr. -
A. E. McDonald,' the superintendent of
the asylum. Dr. William W. btrew,
former superintendent of the Black well s
Island asylum for the insane, testified
that he had examined Keating, and was
of the opinion that he was a saue man. -Thomas
J. Mallen, also formerly em
ployed in the insane asylum, swore that
he never saw Keating act in an. insane
manner, and believed him to be of sound
mind. Dr. A. E. Macdonald teatinea
that Keating, after keeping quiet in his
manner some months after being admit
ted to the insane asylum was moved
from the ward for violent patients to the
one for tractable lunatics, but soon after

Dr. Macdonald thought him to be a dan
gerous lnnatio, although he had
not made an examination oi mm
recently. He formed his opinion from
letters of Keating and the statements of
his relatives. Keating then told the jury
how and why be had been .put into the
lunatic asylum He had quarreled with
his father and slapped his nepnew. ior

afterward be was arrested upon a war
rant and taken to the Tombs. Two
doctors there put a few questions to him

had been changed, nd statements had
been put into it to prove him insane.
He said he felt he nan Deen oaaiy

his relatives. Keating's father testified
that he had procured the arrest of his
son for assault and battery. lie . nau
never thought his son insane, and in
procuring his arrest had merely desired
to have him punisnea ior peing aisre-

Keating to be a sane man, and he was
