Her trem bling Hps denoted that sho needed BQtno support. "And you believe tho stories that woro circulated nbout . mo?" sho ex claimed. In a tono of mingled prldo nnd despair. "You bollovo " "I bollovo what I know to bo truo," I said, Interrupting hor. "I havo heard and discovered onough, and wish to hoar no more. Had I boon told It was your faro I should havo seen to alght when I ontored this house. I would havo flown from It ns from n postllonee. No words! I tell you again I will hear nothing furthor. Uut I cams bore for a purpose; and for my moth er's sake, I will ask you It sho lives and If you know whoro sho Is to bo found." "Sho llvos," replied Mnliol, faintly; "and 1 know whoro sho Is to bo found." "Thank Clod for that!" I oxalalmod. "You will rctttsa, I suppose, to toll mo whoro to sook for her." She was not at rone ciioiirIi to speak. With honvlng bosom nnd clenched hands sho dlrcoted mo to tho tablo by n look. Following hor gnzo, I saw nn envelope on tho table, and written on It my mother's name and the addres of a public house. "Can I tuko this?" I asked. Sho nodded, but made no furthor stgn. Thoro was something heavy In tho envelope. I toro It open, and took from It n small plcco ot silver and a few copper coins, and flung them on thri table. In tho blindness of my passion. I did not stop to trace tho connection between the addressed en velope nnd the money Inclosed. "llcforo I so," I said, with my hnnd on the bundle of (bo door, "I will tell you, as Is tuy duty, what you may have a right to know. I sen Hint you re poor: I havo monoy.

He was saved, with myself and others, In a boat, whleh enabled us to reach the shelter of an Island, where we lived until we were rescued a few months ago. He died there, n natural death, saving my sdul from the commission of a crime. For had I seen bltu. and recognized him, In life. I should havo killed him." "Uod forgive you, Amos Heeerofl." she murmured, with parched Hps, "for the base and sinful thoughts that would have led you to tho crlmol" I need forgiveness, but not for that. Another thing. Your ohlld " "My child! Oh Ood! Yes, yes!" It was the mother speaking now, not the woman. "Lies burled In that lonely Island. The poor boy died In my arms" "Am I dreaming, or am I mad?" she muttered, with a dated look. "The poor Uoy died in your arms!" "And now I have but this to sar Af ter we had found refuge la tho Ujajid, we happily saved from djgjji h HSu girl who lu our exile gtwwsb ftr wjatanhwd She u youft mi fr nnd good: nnd I hnvo adopted her ns my daughter, It Is for hor 1 live, for I love her ns my own; and It is for hor sako that I forbid you to come to me. Sho doos not know the partic ulars ot my unhappy history she does not know that my wlfo betrayed me, nnd plnyed mo false. Thn story Is too shameful for my 1'enrl to hear, and I would save her from the contamination of your presence." Sho gavo a wild scream. "Your Poarlt Pearl! Saved from death!" she cried, tottering toward mo with a wild, appealing motion ot hor trembling hands. Hut I waited to hear no more. I rcolcd down tho stairs llko a drunken man, with all my pulses beating fit rlously. Tho detective caught my arm nnd steadied mo, and the action re called mo to myself. I placed tho en velopo In his hand, and asked him If ho was acquainted with the place. "Woll," ho answered; "It Is In tho sailors' quarter ono of the common dancing houses." "Lot us hasten there." 'You know tho namo tho womnn tip stairs goes by, I supposo?" ho said. "You menn to nsk mo It I know sho Is my wlfo. That Is enough, Is It not?" "It's no business of mine," ho ro piled, taking his cue from my sullen manner. "I novor Intnrforo In family manors, rouco nnd quietness is my motto." In less than ton minute wo arrived In tho cab nt thn sailors' homo. . It was situated In tho must squalid part of tho KaBt End of Iomlon, nnd I heard tho sounds of music an I entered. "Wo shall And hor In tho dancing room," euld tho detective, after ox changing n few words with tho land lord, "An old womnn answering to your description' comes horo evory tilgnt, nnd sells nuts." I followed him Into tho room, whoro n numbor ot sailor wero dancing, and thoro, standing by tho bar at which men were drinking I saw my mothor. un old, old woman now. with a basket ot nuts on her arm. Not considering whnt might bo the effects of tho sudden surprlso upon her, I placed my hand on hor shoulder, nnd looked In her fnoe. "Sumo nutB, my lad?" she said. In n thin, piping volco. And without waiting for nn nnswer. sho filled n measure and held It out to mo. I received the nuts In my cap and gavo her a shilling. Sho pressed nor nngors over it, and put it to hor tooth. "Sho Is blind," whlsporcd tho detec tive. Tho shock ot tho nows nlmost struck ino dumb; fur her eyes wero wide open nnd scorned to bo looking at me. Hut alas! sho was never moro to boo the foes of tho son whom tho had loved so truly and devotedly. "Ulve mo a measure, mother." said n sailor. Sim laughed In a childish way as sue nilrcl her measure again. - i no ibub, moss litem? sho piped knuw that I was a sailor's wife and a sailor s mother. Here, my lad Whore's tho gentleman who gavo me a shilling? Illess you, my lad! you don think I nm rich enough to change Hint?" "Keep It. mother," I said, In rough, tearful value. "No. no, my lad." she replied. "You musin t no ovorfroo with your money 'TIs too much the wny of sailors, that 'TIs truo l'vo had the good luck, more than onoe, to sell out my bosket to one man "You shall do so now, mother. Mens tire them nil nut to me." The landlord, nt a Blgn from me, gave me a dish whloh stood on the bar. into which my mother poured all her nuts measure by measure. "Thlrteen-penre. my lad." Bhe said I handed the nuts to the landlord and gave my mother another nanny. The men would hnvo crowded round us. but that the detective, whispering to them, kept them off. "Uood luck to him! they said, and gave mo and my mother many a sympathizing look. Hut one, less cautious than the others, arltd out, "What! Amos Hoecroft allvel knew him, and served with him In the Indiana. Ulve us a grip of your hand matoi" I waved him back with a warning gesture. My motitor dropped her has ket, ana in a feouie. querulous tone cried: "Who spoka of Amoo Deeorott, my son, being Oliver He Is dead! The best of sons and the best ot BbMors! Ho died doing his duly, as Ueeerort Mariner, his father and my husband laus. uni. un, Amos- my son, my sou: ' tb4l Mpre4 still dlsguis unc mr tisjij isj ?m listen to nu tor a MMHMM, MmI Uy to be strong "! list wftfc My heart, my UJ, sho answered, "with my hoartf Was It you sailed In thn Indiana with my son? Nay. my lad, don't cry. TIs a oman's business to suffer. They lit tle know oh. thoy llulo know?" A sailor, mother." I whispered, through my tears. "Is never dead tilt ho's burled, as you hnvo learned be fore to-night. Did not Amos, your son, route homo aftor he won sup posed to be dead? And suppose ho was h peaking to you now." It was useless saying anything mors. for she could neither see nor hear me. With n deep sigh sho would have fallen to tho ground, but that I supported her, In my arms. I carried hor to the cab which was waiting nt the door for me, and amidst cries ot "flood luck to you, mate, and tho old womnn, too!" wo drove off to Ileeoroft, Mariner's, cottage ot shells, In Urlxton. CHAPTHR XXVII. T was two o'clock In tho morning, nnd my mother was In bed, and Pearl was watch Ing over her. On my way homo hod stopped at the hotiso ot n doctor, who accompanied us In a cab, and who left mo only halt an hour sine. "It Is difficult to tell." wore his Inst words to me, "In whnt condition she will nwako, or, Indeed, whether she will nwako nt all. Ilcmembcr how old sho Is, nnd whnt sho has passed through. It Is wonderful, from what you hnvo told me, how she has borno It nil." Sitting nlone In the little parlor, my thoughts naturally turned on tho strange discoveries ot tho night, and on thoso events of my life which led up to them. Uut I could not reduce them to order, my mind was In such n whirl; nnd one thought was novor ab sent. Had I wronged my wlfo lu be lieving her to bo unfaithful to mo? Hor palo, suffering nnd hor poverty wort stronger witnesses In her behalf than all tho clrcumstnntlnl evidence whloh proclaimed hor false. Pearl's llcht step nroiftcd mo from my painful min ings. "She Is nwajte," said jtyarl, "and IsUroxo open the car and proceejled to asking for you." dynamite the through safo, hoping to i wuui upniaira ill once, ana nm uy my mother s bedside. "I know my Amos' step," site mur mured. "I hnvo not boon dreaming then and yet it seemed so real. Klsi mo. my son." "Do you fcol bettor, mother?" I asked, ns I embraced her. I am very wottk. Amos, I didn't hear your 'Vo, heave, ho,' when you cumo homo to-night. You didn't forget It, my son?" "No. mothor. I did not forgot It." "It wns your father's cnl'. His love- cnll, ho sometimes said. I shall hfor It soon again. You mustn't giiuvc, my son, wron I am gone. I. havo had great pleasure In my life. Trouble has como to mo In my dreams, but nil my hapiiliu.ua has been real waking happiness, and you, Amos, havo be stowed it on me. Is Mabel hero?" (to ns coxTiMtmn.) METHODS, HERE AND ABROAD. Wsj of Mitring Host In Hiiglautl, j fraiic Mint Utriuanjr, ' A comparison of tho different moth-! ods at doing what Is practically the same thing In various parts ot th world is both Interesting and amusing to tho thoughtful obsorver, says Cas- sler's Magazine. On American ferry boats the Import Is well known ot the "tittg-tlug" or "jllgle-jlugle" of tho boll by which the man In the wheclhous communicates with his fellow-mortal in the engine room. On tho Thames.! however, It would be considered prnctl-; cally Impossible to convey Information In this manner, and the captains at tin small paddle steamers an that stream stand on the psddte-buxes and sing out "Hase er!" "Hack 'er!" etc., apparently to nobody in particular, while these Interesting remarks are promptly repeated In shrill tones by a small boy Into a speaking tube which: communicates with the lower regions On the Seine, In France, this process Is i simplified and a large trumpet-shaped mouthpiece flares out tit front of tn! man at the wheel and he yells his com-, tttnnds Into this funnel, the other end ot which Is supposed to reach the en gineer. The large steamers on the Hhlno. In Uermany, are controlled, not by the uiual wheel placed In the wheel house forward, but by a .very large wheel on a vertleal axis, placed rlsat amidships upon nn elevated platform or bridge, and several men pass lb handles from right to left, or upon oc casion trot round In a elrele, and it would uoubtless be considered a serious temptation ot Provldenee. or at least a reflection upon the fatherland.

Six men wore In tho initio, but mndo their wny through tho south nnd ot the new shaft. Tho flro Is supposed to have originated from spontaneous combustion caused by lard and coal oil. it Is Impossible at present to estimate the extent of the low that the fire will oattso, but It Is safo to say that It will amount to hundreds ot thousands of dollars.

Moro than 300 came Monday on tho Old Dominion steamer, and all of thorn nppeared down town at an early hour yesterday morning. Nearly all spoke In glowing terms ot the busi ness outlook In the south nnd tho man lier In whleh thoy placed orders with tho wholesale house showed that thoy woro slncoro when they said thoy looked for n orlod ot almost unprece dented projparlty.
