The combination of circumstances that
served to bring Miss Damon to L
moneyless, but determined, was known to
nobody. All that any one knew of her was
imparted by a brief statement made by the
editor of The Dispatch to the effect thai
on a certain blustering afternoon in Janu
ary she had walked into the cfUce and
asked for employment. He had declined
her services with thank?, but she came
•gain aud Rgain, until one day .-he found a
vacant desk, sat down at it, and had been
there ever since.
She wrote two or three caustic articles,
struck fit one i r two local atrocities, and in
n little while made an unenviable reputa
tion for bitterness aud cynicism. Her name
got out, and after that everything malicious
and pungent that appeared in the paper
was unhesitating set down to her credit
She was uot known outside of the office,
but the impressions that prevailed concern
ing her were not flattering. It was gen
erally agreed that stie knew too much to be
young, was too cynical to be agreeable, and
there was a theory current among the
paper's readers that she had been crossed
in love and disappointed in nor literary
aspiration*. She did her work iv the day
time, and was little more than a myth to the
men who spent their nights in journalistic
harness. They weie frequently questioned
about her, ai.d they generally answered all
queries by the broad and meaning state
ment that she did not "run with the gang.
Soon after she began her mark In her new
sphere a book of verses appeared, written
by a gentleman of 1. , Gee r^e Lawrence;
Copies were sent to ail the papers, ami one
of these fell into the bands of Miss Damon.
She prefaced tier criticism with the remain
that the verses were not uniformly bad, but
rancid from bud to very bad, fit id then mer
cilessly implied the author to the extent of
three-qu;irter3 ol a column.
Lawrence had never forgiven her. He
referred to her ever afterward as "the
dragon" aiid "the imperial dragon.*' The
iiau;e seemed appropriate and it was Gener
ally adopted. Tne criticized versifier ex
perienced some satisfaction at having thus
baptized hrr with indignation, but he by no
means considered himself avenged, and
at the mere mention of her name his mus
cles grew rigid aud every artery tin bbt-d
with i wild desire for vengeance, Boine
clever with a pencil re made a sketch of
he r which embodied the popular impression
that she was a shrewish person of uncer
tain age. aud it wa« a source of endless
amusement to himself and friends. It
must be confessed that Miss Damon's was
not the only adverse criticism, and Law
rence was a good deal depressed, but not
wholly subdued: He did not intend to be
snuffed out iv this summary fashion, how
ever, and though for a time he attempted
nothiug in a literary way. he was casting
about for a fresh motive, resolved at no dis
tant date to make another effort. "'The
dragon" had recommended prose; he would
try i>rose.
• •••••••
In the meantime summer had come, and
Lawrence was to ?peisd several months with
some friends in California. When he re
turned he would go to work in earnest.
It was a glorious day, bright and cool,
though it was the middle of July; the sun
was just rising over the eastern rim of the
cup-shaped valley; a luminous mist, shad-
Ing from pink to purple, was rolling away
from Pike's Peak, and the bits of sky show
ing between the serrated ridges opposite
were deeply blue.
Lawrence, on his way to California, had
stopped to spend a day at Manitou. lie had
reachtd the sprincs the evening before, and
was finishing his breakfast this bright morn
ing in thtt great Sahara of a dining-room,
wnen the waiter came in to announce the
carriage lie had ordered for the day. For
the last half hour the gallery in front of the
hotel had been thieved with tourists ready
to begin the day's sight-seeing, and the
double line of vehicles drawn up outside
were leaded with all possible dispatch.
As Lawrence emerged from the dining-room
the last wagon drove up to the doer and a
lady was on tne point of getting in when the
driver said:
"Beg your pardon, ma'am, but this car
riage is for the gentlemen."
"But I ordered a carriage for this morn
"Your order was tco late. They were
all engaged. This was the last one in the
stables. I can give you one to-morrow."
"I shall not be here to-morrow."
"Maybe the gentleman is going to stay
over a day or two and would just as eooo
drive to-morrow," suggested the driver.
By this time Lawrence had come up.
"If you can cive me a horse and saddle
it will answer my purpose just as well," lie
"I havn't got a horse."
"As I leave to-morrow on the early
train," said Lawrence, "I cannot conveni
ently postpone my drive. But we are pron-
Hbly going in the same direction, and 1
should be delighted to accommodate you
With a sett In the vehicle."
There was nothing else to be done. She
accepted with thanks. Lawrence handed
her luto the carriage and thought, as their
eyes met, that she as not an unpromising
companion. He was a gregarious animal.
He hated being alone, especially in « crowd,
and a chance acquaintance was not to be
despised. He handed her his card. She
looked at the name, raised her brows slight
ly, dropped the card into her handbag, and
then, looking squarely at him, said:
"My name is Vincent."
He called her Miss Vincent at a venture.
She did not Correct him, aud they fell to
discussing the points of interest on trie way.
It was a delightful drive, and neither
regretted the circumstance that brought
them together. They dined at the same
table, finished up the eights in the after
noon, and getting In rather late, took sup
per tete-a-tete in a corner of the deserted
dining-room. That evening the rooms were
cleared for a ball. He met her at the door
as she was about to enter the ballroom.
She wore a dress of black lace with a
sleeveless corsage that displayed a pair of
superb arms and a smooth white neck. The
sharp contrast of her hair and dress with
the singularly fair complexion made her
ok like a black and white cameo, and ho
thought as she stood there looking past him
into the ballroom that no carving could be
classic than her profile.
"Shall we co in there?" she asked. "It
seems dreadfully warm and crowded."
"Then suppose we stay here."
"I believe it is much pieasanter here,"
She answered. '
Tee ballroom was full of promenades.
They passed out on tbe veranda and Bat
talking in the moonlight. Occasionally
they would return and beguile the intervals
waltzing when the music permitted, until
the crowd of dancers began to thin and the
parlor clock struck one.
"I really miiht go now," said Miss Vin
cent, rising. "There is l o'clock, and I
leave at 8. Good-night."
"Which way do you go to-morrow?"
a3ke<l Lawrence.

miles distant from tlie town where he lived
... 1 11 see you in the morning," he said*.
"1 believe we leave this place on the game
train, so I won't say good-bv. And now
just one more dance— the last."
Down the long gallery they floated into
the shadow and out into the light, his clasp
gradually tightening as they went, her lac!
against his shoulder and his head bent for
ward until his cheek touched her Hair '1 he
music ceased suddenly, but the arm about
her waist did not relax, She gav a a furtiv"

away like a swallow, and he caught a last

result was a novel— the story of a day
called "Eu Route," which he assured his
friend was suggested by an incident of his
western trip. The book had been published
and the reviewer*, to use his own phrase,
had "let him down easy." and he was much
surprised tv nnd himself gently and affably
treated by the Dispatch. The writer was
not surprised to find so indifferent a poet
capable of producing a tale so pleasing and
graceful, so full of felicitous description, so
fresh and unhackneyed. It was understood
that the young man was under a solemn
promise never again to attempt verse, and,
in consideration of this assurance and the
promise of success held out by the latter
work, it was but just that the public should
extinguish Its resentment and take the
author to a forgiving and Indulgent bosom.
There followed a criticism in which the
claims of the book were seriously treated,
and by the time Lawrence had finished the
perusal be was thinking that after all he
might have b?en a little too tierce In his re
sentment upon a previous occasion, I hero
arose within hint a desire to - make amends
in some way for his own derision of this
person, 'however hard upon him at
first was clearly without malice in the mat
ter 'and had uo doubt in each instance ex
pressed an honest conviction. He wrote a
note in which he acknowledged the
courtesy and asked leave to call and than*

that i.ad been handsomely bound, intended
as souvenirs for his friends. He would be
most happy to present one as a token 01 his
The reply to this friendly overture was
written upon a card, across the left-hand
upper corner of which was the day of the
week in gilt lettering. On the opposite
upper corner was a pen and ink sketch of
St. George In the act of vanquishing the
dragon. Below was written:
"Miss Damon will be nt home to Mr. Law
rence this evening at B o'clock. Number
705 West Broadway."
The sketch, despite the limited space it
occupied, was spirited and indicated a
knowledge of her unflattering sobriquet.
As be locked up at his own sketch upon the
wall be was conscious of a strong impulse to
destroy it.
At B o'clock that evening Lawrence, bear
ing his peace-t tiering -lustily bound in
and morocco, rang Miss Damon s Dell.
He was ushered into the parlor, and in a
few moments l.c heard a rustling of drapery
behind him. As lie rose he encountered a
Blender figure in a toilet of black lace.
"Miss Vincent!" he said exultantly, " 1
have been looking for you everywhere. I
have written you innumerable letters, and
I have been four times to tint horrid hole
of a town where you said yon? lived. Wnv
did you deceive me so cruelly?"
"Why did I deceive you? Wei'. I did not
think it would add anything to your pleas
ure just then to know the truth. "
A horrible presentiment seized him.
"Then — then — your name — is uot Vin
Tea; Alice Vincent— Damon.'
"You knew me, of course?" he faltered.
"Don't you think you have taken rather
a mean advantage of me?"
"No. I think the truth would have
spoiled a very pleasant day."
In the conversation that followed the pur
pose of the visit was well nigh forgotten,
and the souvenir played a very inconspicu
ous part in the diversion of the evening.
A week or two later, as Lawrence was
sittinc in his room, his friend Harrison
came in, took ft seal on the opposite side of
ti;«j table, and after gazing at bis host for
some time with a most lugubrious;jexpres
sion, said:
"Old man, is this all true that 1 hear about
"What do you hear?"
"Thtt you have actually caught the
dragon !"
Laurence laughed.
"What dues it mem?" persisted Harrison.
"It means that at last 1 am about to take
my revenge. I intend to marry her."
Lawrence made this announcement with
dramatic Intensity and Harrison, who had
arisen, dropped limply Into a cimir. After
a pause he pointed to the sketch on the wall
and asked pathetically:
"I say, Lawrence, dees she look like
Lawrence reversed a photograph that
was standing on the mantelpiece with its
face to the wall, and, holding it before Har
rison, said:
"Siie looks likethatand she is the heroine

How to Boast a Turkey and How to Make
a Nice liioe- Almond Cake.
"This moruinc." said one of the poultry
dealers to The Call's market reportei yes
terday rs be was strolling through oce of
the principal n.arkets in search for
thiug that would make a good dinner fur
Sunday, we have a line assortment of nice
spring chickens, which make the finest
broilers for breakfast; then roasting chick
ens are nice at this season and these little
cottontails make a go d and palatable stew
or they can be broiled to a turn. But be
sides these we can fix you up a very nice
turkey, wlikh makes an excellent roast f i
a dinner, and, as the housekeeDfr says It Is
seasonable at al! times, but to be good it

"Much depend*," said the dealer, "in the
preparation of the bird aud the stuffing that
is used. To my thinking there is no way to
cook a turkey that will equal one stuffed
with chestnuts and reacted. You dr iw and
prepare the turkey fur stuffing nnd fill it
with pork snus;»ge meat and chestnuts.
The neck should be cut off close to the back,
the skin drawn back close and sewed with
a trussing needle and thick twine. Then,
after the interior of the turkey has been
well washed and dried with a cloth, it
should be filled with the- stuffing asd the
opening closely sewed. The chestnuts arc
prepared as follows: Take as many
chestnuts as you think you will need.

throw them into boiling water for a few
minute;), remove them and then the shelU
and inner skin will come off very easily.
Take ha:f the quantity am put in the
chopplng-bowl, chut) them, but not fine,
after which mix with the sausage meat.
When the turkey has been stuffed and sewed
up, truss it witn either twine or skewers
and cover the breast with thin layer* of fat
bacon, and it is ready to put in the oven.
The balance of the chestnuts should then
be put into a ttewpan with a little good beef
broth and allowed to boil until well dove.
Squeeze the juice of a small lemon over
them and then press them through a hair
sieve with the back of a wooden spoon. To
this i.dd seasoning to taste and some cream,
let it simmer, but not bail, and stir contin
ually. Send to the table in a very hot gravy
bowl. This sauce may be colored of h rich
brown by the addition of a little caramel
while it is cooking. The turkey, If-. to
Bay, should be roasted until it is of a light
brown, and when served there may be
placed around the edge of the die; some
small sausages that have been cooked in the
baking-pan with the bird."
" With that turkey," said a friend of the
reporter, "you should have a good dessert,
and if you will permit 1 will suggest one
that is delicious and uot difficult to make.
Then, as you are agreeable, I will tell you
what to do. 'li. is called rice cake and
alpionds. You wash 12 ounces of rice, put
it into a stewpin with four ounces of but
ter, eight ounces of sugar, half an ounce
of bitter and four ounces of *weet almonds
previously scalded and pounded, one quart
of milk aud a very little salt; set the whole
to boil very gently by the Ride of a
slow fire, and by the time the milk has be
come absorbed by the rice the latter will be
done. If not quite done a little more milk
should be added previously to setting it to
boil, slowly, a Ijttle longer. Whin the rice
is done mix in the yelks of six eggs and the
whites of three whipped. Next shred four
ounces of sweet almonds and strew them
equally over the inside of a plain mold
previously rather thickly spread with but

The Special Steamer Coliuia Ar
rives From Honolulu.
News of the Thetis and the Montserrat—Suc
cess of the New Atlantic-Pacific Steam
■hip Line.
After the heavy rush of arrivals and de
partures on Thursday, it is Dot surprising
that yesterday was a slack day along the
city front.
The most notable event was the arrival of
the Pacific Mail steamer Colima from a
special trip to Honolulu. The Colima left
this port three weeks ago with 629 Chinese
discharged from quarantine, and declared
to be in transit to the Hawaiian Islands.
On the arrival at Honolulu on Saturday,
June 4, the authorities detained the ship for
special examination. On the following day
all but 42 of the Mongolians were landed.
The rejected ones came back with the
Colima, along with 11 European steerage
passengers and Captain W. T. Sampson of
the United States cruiser San Francisco.
This officer comes home to take the place of
Captain Watson as assistant commandant
at the Mare Island Navy-yard, Captain
Watson being transferred to the cruiser.
Captain Sampson reports Hawaiian com- j
merce as very dull, and many of tlio sugar
plantations closing operations for the pres
ent. This fact, coupled with the announce
ment that 3000 Chiuese and Japanese are
now en the way to tlie islands, suggests
very strongly that their eventual destination
is San Francisco, or that they are to replace
the Portuguese who are getting out of the
croup as last as sail and steam can carry
Admiral Brown is reported to bo still
confined to his bed. Tho United States
ship Thetis left Honolulu two days before
the Colima and will go direct to Mare
Island. The Thetis surveyed a new lino
for the cable, namely from Point Concep
tion to llilo, that surveyed by the Albatross
being from Monterey to Honolulu. Over
300 soundings were taken by the Thetis
with an extreme depth of 3200 fathom*.
Her officers are: Commander, G. C. Ket

oflieer. J. W. Stewart; navigators. D. S.

botham was one of the officers who pre
pared and submitted the testimony of the
sailors of the Baltimore in the Valparaiso
all air.
The steamer Montserrat, which sailed
from here last April for Nanaimo and the
Gilbert Islands, left Honolulu just before
the arrival of the Cotiuu. Captain Black
burn admitted while on shore that he us
going to the Gilbert group on a "blackbird
ing" trip and that the islanders would be
deported under contract to the coffee plan
tations at Sin Ben i to, Mexico. King Tuuro
mora was entertained by Queen Lilionoka
lani before the Montserrai left Honolulu.
There were no new developments in the
Stockton steamer competition yesterday.
Tho bark Co usa, which has been engaged
in the Hawaiian line from tills port, went
to Oakland Creek yesterday to await a
favorable change in the island trade.
The cofferdam was successfully lowered
at the Market-street ferry slip for the con
struction of the third concrete pyramid
pier. There will be eicht of these in all,
and four are expected to be ready by the
end of u^xt week. Colton Bros. & Co., the
contractors, have asked for an extension of
GO days, which the Harbor Commissioners
have refused to grant, but an Intimation
has been conveyed that if due diligence is
used no harsh measures will be taken.
Since the discovery of the smuggled
coolies on the Sonoma, orders have been
giveu for the incoming sailing vessels on
the Hawaiian line to be closely searched,
not only for contraband Chinese, but for
violations of the immigration laws in the
matter cf overcrowding passengers. The
opinion gains ground that there lias bsen a
regular system of smuggling Chinese on
the Sonoma plan, and this game will be
blocked as effectually as the opium smug
gling by way of the sound and the north
coast steamers.
There is some prospect of the approach to
the Mail dock being made practicable for
vehicles at any early date. The Harbor
Commissioners have, called the attention of
the Superintendent of Streets to the matter,
and the needed repairs cauuot much longer
be delayed. At present access to the dock on
the east side is absolutely closed, and the
wharf is in a very dangerous condition.
The assigning of the Clay-street berth to
the new opposition Stockton steamers has
necessitated a number of changes. The
lluiubuldt hag been moved to the berth for
merly occupied by the Mmo!. which now
takes that used by tie McDowell. The
Government steamer will mov« to the north
side of Washington street. Yesterday she
was very busy conveying two batteries of
the Fifth Artillery from Alcatraz and the
Presidio to the Oregon dock, whence they
will start for the north to-day on the
steamer Columbia.
It is freely stated that the Dilot-boat Caleb
Curtis, which started two days ago on a
"bunting and fishing trip," has really gone
on an exploring expedition iv search of
guano eft the coasts of Mexico and Central
The British ship Ulrica, whose cargo was
broached on the voyage by the crew, will
discharge at Fremont street on Monday.
The branch track from Third and Brcn
nau to the Mail dock has been extended by
a curve to First and Frederick, and thence
ud the hill by a steep grado to connect with
the new electric road, the tracks of which
are now being laid along Second street.
The buys in the vicinity of Piist and Fred
erick have constructed a sort of impromptu
toboggan, which, being laid on the track at
the highest point of the grade, affords a
perilously delightful run, with an upset
twice out of every three trips.
The tug Ivy, which came down from Mare
Island yesterday, took back Commander
Glass' household furniture, the commander
intending to reside on the island, where he
li now stationed.
A large party of ladies were out yesterday
