Charlie Esiriugton felt this as he picked his way tliiough the puddles, and wished he had wailed half an hour for his tram at Latimet rnau instead of making a shortcut. He hail been playing ihe banjo at a penny reuding-tfO called because nobody read and admission was free— or^auiz-d by the euer g<-:ic incumbent of St. Cuthberl's. Short cuts, as every one kuows, are often the longest ways, aud Charlie very soon found himself in a blind alley between two di'.rk rows of fuualid cottaee!«, with a bank wall and a heap of rubbish at thecini, which last lie could feel and smell only. He now began to wish he had taken his wife to the pi-nny-i fading, in which case they would have gone home together in a hansom, whereas ucw he was trying to return on the cheap, as a dutiful young husband should. There were some very suspicious-looking customers slinking out of that cottage, should ho a;-k them the way? Botter not, i erbaps. A banjo is not an effective weapon, autf he was all xlonr and he had his gold watch an. l chain on, given him by his friends utthe bank when he married. If only he could get a cab uowl And tJ:-n, as if in an>wer to his wish, there came a hansom trotting into the blind alley till the horse neatly struck the wall with his head, aud the Oliver pulled it back ou its haunches aud swore. A pretty girl was in the cab. Sbe saw- Charlie by the light of the cab lamps and called out in a (rtehteiifd voice: "Can you tell me wheie lam, sir? I think the driver is taking me the wrong way." 'J he driver was turning his horse rapidly and using the whip. " Where do jou want to go?" said Charlie FarriugU'U, going to the horse's head and ataudhig there. " To ( hester square." "Where from? ".Vicarage Gate." Charlie Farriugton whistled to himself. He stood where the driver could get a lull view of liis stalwart frame by the light of the cab lamps, lie was six feet two in his stockings and ex-captain of a foot-ball club, and he. said to the driver: "Li ok here, my friend, this is not the May to Chester square an.l you know it." The n. an grunted that he had iost his bear "Then you had better nud.thcm again," said Farringt'cn, dryly, "or you will have a cup of tea with me. Will you allow me to c. in>- witn you?*" he continued, raising his bat to the plrl In tlm cab, and as she said n . thing he got in and sat oesiile her. She trembled and clung to his arm, which be ra'lier liked. '■Where was he taking me to?" .she said. "Due west instead of south," he replied. "Shoul i 1 have been robbed aud mur dere<i if you had not come?" "I don't know. I always thought yarns about wicked cabmen and their victims were all nonsense till vow. Certainly it looked rather queer." "I've heard they sometimes stab you through t!i« little trap," she said, clinging still lnoie Closely to him in her agitation and fright, and apparently goniK to faiut. "1 never knew them to do any worse than look down," he answered, thinking of hU encaged clays. "Curious," he continued, "very cm ions, l'ou say you came from Vicar, gf Gate, and I could have sworn I saw this gray hoise and cab with yellow wheels standing outside the concert-hall P\e I.e. :i Mugiug at." Kh-e uiil not answer. Was she really going to fainl? How awkward— he had* better put Ins arm around her waist to steady her. A jjlt made her lurch very near him, and lie fell the little gloved hand fall uuon his. Hn pressed it slightly for a few moments; t. i-i. be thought of Mrs. Farrington sitting up waiting to give him his whisky and soda, and he repented and dropped it Still he rather enjoyed the drive; more, perhaps, tl.au his good little wife would have done if slie had seen him. The driver evidently was ou his best behavior, and was taking ih. m straight to Chester square. ■ " i write down the man's number and Inform the police of tins," he said, presently ; "what is it?" The little plate was lather blurred and hard to read inside the cab. " I'll call apolicenian now, I think, ■uil take you on in a tresti cab." "Please don't," she said, Quickly, though in a rather timid voice, "the truth of tlie matter ie, my people think I have been in tlie country for the day, but I have really been to see a friend whom I— who — you know- one has one's private pals. A good fellow like you will uuderstand." 1 be slang rather jarred on Charlie Far rington, aud ibo voice was not quite a re fined one. " You mean that you would rather have no fuss maUei"' ".'1 hat's it," she answered; "I thought you'd understand. The cabby may have meant to murder me, but to give him into cuatndy aud to have to give evidence of where 1 took him from would be worse." Charlie lookeu inquisitively at her. She had ceased clinging to his arm and was lying will back in the cab. Suddenly she peered out of the window, lifting the little blind at the side to see the house better. "Here is the square," she said; "he has ccuie along well; do you mind getting out? We must col drive up to tbe house to tellier." "Thank you, so much," she said, pressiDg bis ritiKcra rather bard. He reciprocated alightl)-, though he was a young married man and a very good husband, too. "You have saved my life, perhaps." "Does the driver know your number?" "Yes ; I told him when I got iv." And off she ilrove. "Mie must live right to the other end of tbe square," said Charlie to himself as he walked In the same direction, and saw the iiauM.in steadily pursuing Us way. "By Jovel they are passing the church 1 The villain can't bo playing more tricks; he must know I should have his number. Phew I 1 must go home before I do any thing. I wish I'd not got out." Aud home he went to his little house, and his wife was very glad to see him back so early. But befoie be could toll her any tbimz about his drive— and he meant to tell tier something— she cried out: "Why, where Is your watch?" Sure enough, it was gone; presentation watch, chain and ail his money and his pearl duds, nipped clean off at the setting, as if with a pair of shears. Then he managed to tell his story— more ol it, perhaps, than he originally intended, lor there was some reproach in bis wife's eves as she tried to console him, and they talked over what they should do. . But the constable on duty outside the con cert ball knows nothing of the man who drove a gray horse iv a yellow-wheeled han som, and who was waiting tbere when tbe people came out on the nigbt of the peony leading.

An on-looker raised up.liis voice und said he would bet a dollar (but no one in the crowd could tell the process by which a turtle Is killed. Whether no one know, or whether tne crowd had been caueht in the Baring Brothers' whirl, is not known, but the bet remained open. Tbe man lowered it to a half, and it still re mained "ou the table." After lie had de parted another man, a little fellow without any overcoat or shirt-collar, said: "If I bad had any stuff I would have taken that bet. I aa< a professional turtle-killer. The business is a profession, and isn't picked np in a day. Now, I frill explain to you gentlemen how to kill a turtle. 1 know none of you could do it after I tell you, but I want to show you that the duffer wuo bluffeil the cruwd doesn't know it all. See? X«w pay attention. First persuade your turtle to stick out his head, and when he. does you cut his throat If be pets obstinate and refuses to stick out his head it may be necessary to grab the bead with a pair of strong nippers and hold the head between them until the throat is cut. Then >■■ v cut the muscles that connect the body with the shell and leave the turtle to die. Now, how many of you can tell me how long that will take? Nouc. Of course not. You don't know. Well, ahoiu twenty four hours. There is a good deal of the hu man about a turtle. It likes to hang on, the turtle does. If I bad bad the stuff I could have won that bet." A iihilanthropic mail in the crowd, who said he was fond of turtle siiuii, tipped the man a quarter and passed on.— Chicago Tribune. THE STOCK MAKKET.

JILTED THE SAME MAN TWICE. rretty Kettle Carpenter, the Violinist, Again J>isa|i points Mr. Thurahfleld. London professional and even social cir cles are discus-ting with avidity certain in teresting facts which have leaked out con cerning pretty Nettie Carpenter, the American violinist, who, a lew niorjtus ag3, startled her friends both in Europe and Atneii 'a by suddenly engaging herself to Gforge Thurshfi -Id, a young barrister of Lincoln's Inn, and tlien sensationally run ning away on the eve of marriage. AH torts of stories are told about Miss Carpen ter's coquetry, but not a word of scaudal is breatiied ugainst her. It is said that the younuer son of a British nobleman is pay inn her very flattering attention and that he has hopes of wedding her and of in cidentally becoming her nianacer. When Nettie ran away to escape the mar riage bonds sho took refuge at the house of Mr. Whistler. She lias since been cfoaueroned by the doctor's wife. For a while everything went smoothly. She hud spoiled love's young dream, yet her spirits were apparently as buoyant as youth, health and pleasant surroundings could make them. For iiddling for half an hour in tho Albert Hull or playing a couple o( tunes at some swell private concert in London Miss Nettie got £100 a night and (ometiuies more. She drove a smart trap in Hyde Park, and it was quite a treat to see the piquant, inde- I endent American la the procession during the late London season bowing to the dan dies and nicguls of fashion, every one of whom she knew and the majority of whom hud patronized her. During Nettie's courtship it was observed that her inothir. Mine. Wesley M. Carpen ter, of the Villa Sarasanettle, Dieppe, France, was conspicuous by her absence from London. The fact that Mrs. Carpen ter, who is the widow of Dr. Carpenter, the well-known mlcroscopist, was still absent on the eve of her daughter's proposed wedding excited still further gossip. It has since be come known that mother and daughter h&d become estranged. Nettie Is high spirited and resented maternal control. Days would elapse during which, though living under the snme roof, neither would speak a word. One day Miss Nettie announced her inten tion of taking up her residence at the Mid land Grand Hotel, the host and host ess of which are her great admir ers. Nettle became, in a literal sense, their guest Of late. as stated she has lived with the Whistlers, where her lines fell in pleasant places. About two months ago, however, her pursuit of pleas ure was interrupted in a most disagreeable way. George Thurshfield turned up. In stead uf tlie robust youth of six months be fore, Nettie saw a thin, puny boy, who was apparently iv the last stages of consump tion. They met at Dr. Whistler's house. George almost forced an entrance. There »as a touching Interview, but Nettie was obdurate. George went away.and his part ing threat was that if Nettie did not marry him he would shoot himself. lie haunted the neighborhood. A day or two afterward he and Nettie met face to face on tbe street George said : "Come, I want you to go with me. We will go to the drug-store. 1 have a prescrip tion here which we must both take. It will end my troubles and yours." They went to the drug-store, but the clerk's suspicious vrero aroused and ne re fused to fill the prescription. About this time Dr. Whistler cabled to Mine. Carpenter, who was in New York, requesting her to come atonic to London. Meanwhile Nettie, moved by her former lover's condition and affrighted by his threats that he would take his life, had asaiu promised him her hand. George was destined to another bitter, hu miliating disappointment, fur when the hour arrived fur the marriaue Nettie for the second lime backed out. Neither the tears of the boy's family nor the supplicatious of the boy hinisclf, nor the importunities of her im mediate friends, could change her de cision. George, broken in health aud spirits, it is said, is poinc to Australia.— London special to Chicago Herald. A GREAT ARTIST. Duke Lorenzo <I<> Medici and (he Jioy Michael Angelo. One afternoon tlie Duke Loronzn de Medioi, in walking through the garden, came upon young Michaol Angelo, who was busily ehissling his first piece of sculpture. The Duke saw in the stone the face of a faun whicli tlie boy was copying from an antique mask, but which, with his usual Im patience of Imitation, he was changing so as to show the open lios and tertli. "How is it," said the Duke, drawing closer, "that you have given your fiiun a complete set of teeth? Don't you know that such an old fellow was sure to have lost some oi theml"' Miuhi'.el Angelo at oui-e saw tbu jusiiee of t lie Criticism. Artists are not always ready tv receive adverse comment, Michael An gelo himself was quick-tempered and haid to move. A hot went to one ot his boy com panions on a certain occasion biuiighl so se vere a blow in the face mat all truthful pui traits df Michael Angelo have sincu had to show him with a broken nose, lint the Duke* critiiism was kiudly given, and was plainly warranted, and the young sculptor could hardly wait until the Duke walked <n before beninniiiK tlie toireeiion. When the Duke saw the faun's lace again lie found some of the teeth gone, and the empty sock ets skilfully chiseled out. Delighted wiih this evidence of the lad's willingness to seize and act upon a sugges tion, and impress d anew by his artistic skill, tlie Duke made inquiries, learuedthat Michael Angelo hud borrowed stove aud tools ou his own account iv his eagerness to begin sculpture (he was lirst set al drawing irom the statuary), aud eDdal by sending lor the buy's father. The. result of the con sultation was that the Duke took Mich:iel Angelo under his own special patrunage and protection, and was so well pleased alter he had done it that no favor seemed too great tn bestuw uiMti the energetic young artist. Michael Angelo. then only 15 years old, not only received a key to the Garden of Sculp ture and an apartment in the Medici Palace itself, but had a place at. the Duke's table. In fact, a real attachment grew up between Michael Aiißclu and the Duke, who fre quently called the Loy to his own rooms, wlseu he would oien a cabinet of gems and intaglios, aeek his y uing visitor's opinions and enter into long and confidential talks. — Alexander Hlaek iv January St. Nicholas.

OKUKKED AT LAST. A long-contemplated and very important improvement has at last beeu ordered by the Southern l'aeilic Company on its Sunset Koute in Tex a*, near tlie junction of tlie J'ecos River with tlie Kio Grande, on tlie line of the Galvestoii, Hairisburt and San Anto nio road. By surveys recently made tlie distance between Siiuuila and Flanders sta tions will be reduced from eiKhtteu to seven miles, aud by this cut-off the road will avoid i.ni> of its most (lanueious points, and will abunuon two tuuuels and twenty-six bridges, tin- cuiistructiun of which cost mure than $i,000,()00. Uu the new line it will be neces snry to bridge the IVcos River, with spans stretchiug 1:200 feet, and nbout 350 feetabove the river-lied, it is ebtimatcd that the cost of the work will be about. $1,000,000, and the contractors, Kicker, Lee <St Cu. uf Galvestou, have guaranteed to have the work completed within oiua nionllis. On the old route be tween the stations above mentioned, the road sinks lrom ;:u altitude of 1418 feet to lOotifect at Painted Cave, and rises to the height of lo«)7 leet at Flanders.

The voting resulted: Miss Tarpoy 5, Miss Carr 3, Miss Koper 1. As it requires 7 votes to prevail, there was no election, and a motion for another ballot was lost. The meeting was then adjourned. Once In a Lifetime. The people of San Francisco have had more than one opportunity of purchasing Christmas aud New Year's eifts at prices so very moderate that all could afford to buy. The chief center of attraction during the past few weeks has been Pinkiert's Grand Bazaar, where auction sales are held daily, commencing at 11 o'clock, continuing throughout the afternoon and beginning again in the evening at 7:30 o'clock. Every con ceivable article of merchandise is here dis played lor sale at the buyer's own price. In the rear of the spacious store a small army of counter attendants transact private sales, while the auction is in progress near the entrance. Mr. Pinkiert intends to ilisuosc of the whole of his immense stock by Jan uary Ist, and judging from the throng of purchasers in this popular store yesterday, be will experience no difficulty in effecting a thorough clearance. Snn Franciscans ap preciate the opportunity of securing such genuine bargains, which are offered but once in a lifetime. Ticket-Paddlera' License. Jake Lindo, of City Pound notoriety, was • pleader before the License Committee yes terday in behalf of tbe proposed amend ment of General Order 1766, reducing tbe license of theater-ticket peddlers from $100 a month to 325 a quarter, it was an nounced by the lofty dignitary of California street that he intended soon to enirage in the ticket-peddling business and thought $25 a quarter quite as high a tariff as one in th:it business could afford to pay. Ellert opposed the proposed reduction because it would flood the town with an army of petty scalpers who would make life a burden to theater patrons. The resolution will be re ported back to the board without change. HOTEL ARRIVALS. GRAND HOTEI* J Ware. Sander IK P Kerns. Stockton A Arnold.
