"Our little girl , one year and a half old. was taken with eczema or that was what the doctor called it We called In the family doctorand he gave some tahlets and said she would be all right In a few days. The eczema grew worse and we called in doctor No. 2. He said she was teething , as eoon as the teeth'were through she would he nil right. But she still grew worse. Doctor No. 3 said it was eczema. By this time she was nothing but a yellow , greenish sore. Well , he said he could help her , so we let him try it about si week. One morning we discovered : i little yellow pimple on one of her eyes. Of course we 'phoned for doctor No. 3. He came over and looked ner over , and said that he could not do anything more for her , that we had hotter take her to some -eye specialist , since it was an ulcer. So we went to Oswego to doctor No. 4 , and he said the eyesight was gone , but that he could help it We thought we would try doctor No. 5. Well , that proved the y.ame , only he charged § 10 more than doctor No. 4. We were nearly dis couraged. I saw one of the Cuticura advertisements in the paper and thought we would try the Cuticura Treatment , so I went and purchased s\ set of Cuticura Remedies , which cost mo $1 , and in three days our daughter , who had been sick about eight months , showed great improvement , and In one week all sores had disappeared.

In spite of many anxieties , after eventful day I enjoyed the first deeenl night's rest I had had for a week. Th Colonel refused , with an unnecesiary g tentation of scorn , my patriotic offer t keep watch and ward over the city , nd 1 turned in , tired out at eleven e'cleck , after a light dinner. I felt I had torn * reasons for self-congratulations ; for con siderable as my present difficulties were , yet I undoubtedly stood in a more hopeful position than I had before the revolution , I was now resolved to get my money ( ife out1 of the country , and I had hopes ol being too much for McGregor in the other matter which shared my thoughts. The return of the day , however , bronchi new troubles. I was roused at an earlj hour by a visit from the Colonel himself. He brought very disquieting tidings. In the course of the night every one of our proclamations had been torn down or de faced with ribald ecribblings ; posted over or alongside them thfcre now hung multi tudinous enlarged copies of the Presi dent's offensive notice. How or bywhom these seditious measures had been effect ed we were at a loss to tell , for the officers and troops were loud in declaring their vigilance. In the very center of the Pi azza , at the base of the President's statue , was posted an enormous bill , "Remember 1871 ! Death to Traitors ! " "Ho wcould they do that unless the sol diers were in it ? " asked th Colonel gloomily. "I have sent the two com panies back to the barracks and ka4 an other lot out. But how do I know they'll be any better ? I met DeCkair just now and asked him -what the temper of the troops was. The little brmte grinned , and said : 'Ah , mon President , it wonld be better if the good soldiers had a I etle ' " more money. "That's about it , " eaid I ; "but th n you haven't got much mere money. " "What I've got I mean to itick to , " said the Colonel. "If this tfcinr is going to burst up , I'm not joint to bt kicked out to starve. I tell you what It is , Mar tin , you must let me hare some of that cash back again. " The effrontery of this request amased me. The man'i want of ordinary moral ity was too revolting. Didn't he know very well that the money wasn't mine ? Didn't he himself obtaim my help on the express terms that I ahould hare this money to repay the bank with ? "Not a farthing , Colonel ; not a far thing ! By our agreement that cash waste to be mine ; but for that I wouldn't have touched your revolution with a pair of tongs. " He looked very ta.ro.fc , and muttered something under his breath. " ' with high "You're carrying things a hand , " he said. "I'm not going to teal to plea you , " said I. "You weren't always se scrupulous , " he sneered. I took no notice of this insult , but re peated my determination. "Look here , Martin , " 'he said , "I'll give you twenty-four hours to think it over and let me advise you to change you mind then. I don't want to quarrel , bu I'm going to have some of that money. " Clearly he had learned statecraft in his predecessor's school. "Twenty-four hours IB something , " thought I , and determined to try the cunning of the eerpent. "All right , Colonel , " I said , "I'll think h over. I don't pretend to like It ; bat , after all , I'm In with you and we must pull together. We'll see how things look to-morrow morning. " "There's another matter I wanted to speak to you about , " he went on. I invited him into the breakfast room gave him a cup of coffee ( which , to my credit , I didn't poison ) , and began n my own eggs and toast. "Fire away , " said I briefly. "I suppose you know I'm going to be married ? " he remarked. "No , I hadn't heard , " I replied , feign ing to be entirely occupied with a very nimble egg. "Rather a busy time for marrying , isn't it ? Who is she ? " "You needn't pretend to be so very inno cent ; I expect you could give a pretty cod guess. " "Madame Devarges ? " I asked blandly. "Suitable match ; about your age " "I wish you wouldn't try to be funny ! " lie exclaimed. "You know as well as I do it's the Signorina. " "Really ? " I replied. "Well , well , fancied you were a little touched in that juarter. And she has consented to make vou happy ? I was curious to see what he would say. [ knew he vras a bad liar , and , as a fact , I believe he told the truth on this sccasion , for he answered : "Says she never cared a stray for any- jne else. " " Whittingham ? " I asked "Not even ma- iciously. "Hates the old ruffian ! " said the Colo- lel. "I once thought she had a liking : or you , Martin , but she laughed at the dea. I'm glad of it , for we should have [ alien out. " I smiled in a somewhat sickly way , and : ook refnge in my cup. When I emerged , [ asked : "And when is it to be ? ' "Next Saturday. Fact is , between you ind me , Martin , she's ready enough. " This was too disgusting. But whether he Colonel was deceiving me , or the Sig- lorina had deceived him , I didn't know L little bit of both , probably. I saw , how- iver , what the Colonel's game was plainly snough he was , in his clumsy way , warn- ngr me off his preserves , for , of coarse , ic knew my pretensions , and I don't hink I imposed on him very much. But ! was anxious t avoid a rupture and ; aln time. "I mast eal a4 congratulate the idy , " I said. The Colonel ewnldn't very well i > ject o that , but he didn't like it. "Wen , Christima t 14 mt sfct wa * rtry osy , but I fereenf sfcell see JTO for a * w mlnvteo. " "I tores * ? % e w , " I said 4rHy. "I rant be off n w.

Wait till I'v * got the Signora and the money , and then we'll s about that. You thtai about th money , my boy ! " Much te my relief he then departed , and as he went out I vowed that neither Siffnorina. nor money should he have. In the course of the next twenty-four hours I must find a way to prevent him. "Rather early for a call. " said I , "but I must see the Signorina. " On my way up I met several people and heard some interesting facts. In the first place , no trace had appeared of Don An tonio and his daughter ; rumor declared that they had embarked on The Song stress with the President and his faithful doctor. Secondly , Johnny Carr was still in bed at the Golden House ( this front Madame Devar es , who had been to see him ) ; but his men had disappeared , after solemnly taking the oath to the new gov ernment. Item three. The Colonel had been received with silence and black looks by the troops , and two officers had van ished into space , both Americans , and the only men of any good in a fight. Things were looking rather blue , and I began to think I also should like to disappear , pro vided I could carry off my money and my love with me. My scruples about loy alty had been removed by the Colonel's overbearing conduct , aad I was ready for any step that promised me the fulfillment of my own designs. It was pretty evident that there would be no living with Mc Gregor in his present frame of mind , and I was convinced tnat ray best course would be to cut the whole thing , or , if that proved impossible , to see what bar gain I could make with the President. Of course all would go smoothly with him if I gave up the dollars and the lady ; a like sacrifice would conciliate McGregor. But then I didn't mean to make it. "One or other I will have , " said I , as I knocked at the door of "Mon Rapes , " "and both if possible. " The Signorina was looking worried ; in deed , I thought she had been crying. "Did you meet my aunt on your way up ? " ehe asked , the moment I was an nounced. "No , " said I. "I've sent her away , " she continued. "All this fuss frightens her , so I got the Colonel's leave ( for you know w mustn't move without permission now liberty has triumphed ) for her to seek change of air. " "Where's she going to ? " I said. "Home , " said the Signorina. I didn't know where "home" was , but I never ask what I am not meant to know. "You see , Jack , I had to care for my money. " "Oh , so yon've given it t Mrs. Oar- rington ? " "Yes , all but five thousand dollars. " "Does the Colonel know that ? " "Dear me , of course not , or he'd never have let her go. " "You're very wise , " said I. "I only wish I could have sent my m aey with , her. " "I'm afraid tnat would have made dear aunt rather bulky , " said the Signorina , tittering. "Yes , such a lot of mine's in cash , " I said regretfully. Without more ado , I disclosed my wn perilous condition and the Colonel's joastfi about herself. "What a villain that man is ! " she ex- : laimed. "Of course I was civil to him , 3ut I didn't say half that. You didn't jelieve that I did , Jack ? " There's never any use in being unpleas- mt , so I said I had rejected the idea vith scorn. "But what's to be done ? If I'm here : o-morrow , he'll take the money , and , as Skcly as not , cut my throat if I try to itop him. " "Yes , and he'll marry me , " chimed in he Signorina. "Jack , we must have a jounter-revolution. " "I don't see what good that'll do , " I mswered dolefully. "The President will ake the money just the same , and I ex- icct he'll marry you just the same. " "Of the two , I would rather have him. ? ow , don't rage , Jack ! I only said , 'of he two. ' But you're quite right ; it : ouldn't help us much to bring General Vhittingham back. " "To say nothing of the strong proba- ility of my perishing in the attempt. " "Let me think , " said the Signorina , : nitting her brows. CHAPTER XX. The Signorina sat there , looking very houghtful and troubled , but it seemed to ie as if she were rather undergoing a onflict of feeling than thinking out a ourse of action. Once she glanced at ie , then turned away with a restless lovcment and a sigh. I strolled up to the window to look out , had stood there a little while , when I card her call softly : "Jack ! " I turned and came to her , kneeling own by her side and taking her hands. Ihe gazed rather intently into my face ith unusual gravity. Then she said : "If you have to choose between me and ie money , which will it be ? " I kissed her hand for answer. "If the money is lost , won't it all come ut ? And then won't they call you dis- onest ? " "I suppose so , " said I. "You don't mind that ? " "Yes , I do. Nobody likes to be called thief especially when there's a kind of uth about it. But I should mind losing ou more. " "Are you really very fond of me , Jack ? 'o , yon needn't say so. I think yon are. tow I'll tell you a secret.

"I knew what no a else knew , and 1 could rafiaence him as no one else could , and I had my revenge. But now , " sht said , "it all ends in nothing. " And she broke down , sobbing. Then , recovering herself , and motioning me tc be still , she went en : ( "You must be quiet and cautious. Bui I must go to-night to-night , Jack , either with you or to the President. " "My darling , you shall come with rae > " said I. "Oh , out of this somewhere. " I was full of rage against McGregor , but I couldn't afford the luxury of in- dulginp it , so I gave my whole mind to finding a way out for us. At last I seem ed to hit upon a plan. The Signorina saw- the inspiration in my eye. * "Have yon got it , Jack ? " she said. "I think so if you will trust yourselj to me , and don't mind an uncomfortable night. " "Go on. " "You know my littla steam launch ? It will be dark to-night. If we can get on board with a couple of hours' start we can show anybody a clean pair f heels. She travels a good pace , and it's only fifty miles to safety and foreign soil. I shall land there a beggar ! " "I don't mind that , Jack , " she said. "I have my five thousand , and aunt will join us with the rest. But how are we to get on board ? Besides , oh , Jack ! the President watches the coast every night with The Songstress amd you know she's got steam Mr. Oarr just ha4I auxiliary steam put in. " "No , " I said , "I didn't know about that. Look here , Christina , excuie the question , but can you communicate with the President ? " "Yec , " she said , after a second's hesita tion. tion."And "And will he believe what you tell him ? " "I don't know. He might and he might not. He'll probably act as if he didn't. " "Well , we must chance it , " I said. "At my rate , better be caught by aim than stay here. We were , perhaps , a littl aa ty with that revolution of ours.

This is , of course , lue to the fnct that Florida is built cm oral and not very substantially built it that , especially In some of the ln < erior counties.

"One night Redding's potato patch disappeared and the next morning h lad a nice large sinkhole filled -with rater where his garden was. The sam Ight Vance , who had a sinkhole -when ; e went to bed. woke up to find that he hole was filled with dirt , inwhich here seemed to be a lot of pebbles bout the size of a man's fist. Natur- lly he was surprised. He examined Lie pebbles to find them potatoes , and fter calling the family up they got to : ork and gathered la six bushels of otatoes ready for market. "That's where the trouble began. : edding claimed that under the law : here a man's stock -wanders on to tb remises of another , -without his fault ; e can go after it He argued that the ime doctrine applied to potatoes which -wandering habits.
