J It Is understood .that the sugar re ining trust, or part lew closely allied thereto, have made overtures to tho dx Kilby sugar beet plants iu the Sag inaw Valley, the proposition being to take over "l per cent of the stock, the remainder to bo held by the local people. President Benoyar, of the Sag inaw Sugar Co., in a general conversa tion, said that "something is going on but I nm not at liU'tty just now to give any information." Tho Church bill factory in Hay City is included in the list, as is the Alma factory. YV. It. Burt, a large stockholder in the Al ma factory, says that there has been talk of tills kind but he Is not aware that it has yet reached the point of consummation. Much 1P rob on si on Is felt here that the passing of the local factories into the bands of the trust means tho destruction of the Industry, but Mr. Pcnoyar and other local stock holders In sugar companies laugh at the proposition. They say that it will be to tho advantage of tho owners of the factories to operate thorn, since they will be as profitable as any other form of business in the country and there will be no incentive for the trust to shut them down. Besides new ones could be built. It is to tho greater ad vantage of the trust to control the out put than to attempt its destruction. Mn- Get SO Per Cent. The reiort of the appraisers of the assets and liabilities of the Detroit City Savings bank Indicates that the depositors of the wrecked bank will receive at leat r0 per cent, and if the $Gt;2,000 of Frank C. Andrews certi fied chocks hold by various Detroit banks are decided not to be good claims, the dividends will probably amount to more than GO per cent. The receiver asks for t he privilege of pro ceeding against the stockholders of the bank to collect the amounts for which they are liable under the bank ing law. The report of the appraisers shows that the liabilities of the bank amount to $3.274.r2:5.31. and the value of the assets of the bank as appraised thus far is $1,074,427. - , .rr-r-.vprrt 'XTTo cxa 7n inert Ihof nooCs of Martin KAUander, deceased! treas urer of Oogenic county, reports n short nge of J".7(H) In his accounts.

H4: l Ati American Nabob. I t A Rem&.rk&.ble Story of Love, Gold sxnd t Adventure. J I By ST. GEORGE 4 4 Copjrlcbl. by Stuit CHAPTER XX. (Contlnoed.) It eeemed that the captain owned a house far off in the neighborhood of West Brompton, and into this he had moved the wreck of his fortunes, in cluding his family. The marquis waited a certain length of time. Then one afternoon he appeared at the new home of the IJvermores. To himself he declared many times that he intended this visit as a posi tive means of Increasing his hold upon the captain's wife, over whom ha seemed to be exerting some peculiarly hypnotic power, with the eventual aim in view of inducing her to leave home and seek some asylum on the continent. For years he had looked forward to this same moment with tho keenest anticipation; for years he had in hl3 mind gone over every little detail, had seen her surprise and alarm, with his own great triumph, as he sent his shafts home with the arm of ample revenge; yet, strange to say, he did not approach the subject with the eagerness he had expected, tho fever ish thrill was only conspicuous by its absence, and he even started guiltily when from some distant part of the rambling old structure a peal of child ish laughter was borne to his ears; there was something so condemnatory in the merry sound. By degrees he brought the subject around to where he wanted it, and tho manner in which he accomplished this declared that his strategic powers had not waned a particle. "Have you had any American friends?" he asked. "Yes, one," came the rather confus ed reply, and the listener knew he had caused her mind to revert to that un happy past about which she even usually avoided thinking. "Pardon me; but I once knew a poor fellow, an artist, out in Mexico, who said he had been well acquainted with Captain Llvermore's wife," he wsnt on deliberately. "An artist," she echoed, looking pained, and yet showing an eagerness in her voice. "Yes; by name Jack I chanced to do him several favors, and he even confided hl3 history to me. Poor fel low, he had suffered bitterly." "Confided to you then you know " in alarm. "That you acd he were once be- unceasingly In the hope of gaining fame and fortune, your love for him began to grow cold. He had been the means of reconciling you to your proud old English grandfather. In the whirl of society you met Captain Liv ermore, then the lion of the hour. You forgot to write to the man who be lieved In you as he did In Heaven. He came to London, unable to breathe outside your presence. Then you crushed him by declaring that while you still loved him, you loved position still more, and that you had agreed to marry the captain." Fedora's head had fallen on her wildly heaving bosom, but she neither looked up nor uttered a word as yet, being too stunned as the tremendous revelation was forcing itself upon her mind. He went on pitilessly! "Jack sought a quarrel with the man who had robbed him of all he had on earth perhaps you never knew of it, but they met at dawn in the deadly duello, each determined to kill the other. The captain, as they ad vanced toward each other, fired first and only inflicted a wound. He was then at Jack's complete mercy, since he was allowed the privilege of walk ing up as close as he pleased and send ing a ball through the heart of his adversary." Fedora groaned, but never moved. "The captain was no coward; believ ing his hour had come, he deliberate ly opened his coat and awaited the fatal shot, his eyes looking into those of the man he had wronged without knowing it. Twice Jack took aim, but each time he failed to pull the trigger. Finally he raised his pistol, fired In the air and fled from the Fceno." For the first time the raised her head and looked at him, her troubled face marked by conflicting emotions. "Then came the wedding, which poor Jack saw from the organ loft, enduring the tortures of the damned while tho woman whom heaven had given to him was united by law to man she did not love. "Then he fled from Ixmdon as from a place accursed and sought fortune's smiles upon a new field, hating women because one had been false to her vows, and always hugging to his heart tho resolution to some day return and take full satisfaction for that treachery. "That was Jack's story doubtless other men have suffered in the same way from a woman's hand, but none more cruelly. And yet it seemed that fortune took a strange delight in com pensating him his loss oy throwing Into his hands the most wonderful treasure ever known, surpassing all tales from the days of Ophlr and Solo mon down to the present More than this, he was given power and made the head of the Central American republic whither fate had drifted him. "Thus, when five years had passed, rich beyond the wildest dreams, made a noble of Spain because of some finan cial assistance he had given the gov ernment at Madrid, Jack came back to London with the full determination to RATHDORNE Smith, New York. repay the debts he owed, at compound interest, down to the last penny." She was looking at him now with fear-haunted eyes, looking at him as one might gaze upon some dreadful spectre of the past. "You are Jack!" she said, slowly, as if almost unable to grasp the idea at once. "I am that once miserable wretch. Having embarked upon my campaign, I lost no time in making your hus band's acquaintance. It was my hand that, in a fair and honorable way, stripped him of all he possessed. That is only a beginning." "Jack! Jack! Have you no mercy?" she groaned, wringing her hands wildly. "Did you have any when you so coolly turned me down to stay In the mine, while upon my shoulders you mounted to a position In society and gave yourself to a man you never loved? I know all you would say, and be sure, I have steeled my heart against all arguments. What I seek Is only Justice a fair equivalent, I have suf fered, God only knows how much. It Is your turn." He looked like a man of stone, upon whom pleading and tears would be wasted. Fedora attempted neither at first she seemed to act and speak as if in a dream, for his Influence, whatever it sprang from, dominated her personali ty to a remarkable extent Had it been so in those days of yore Fedora would never have willingly giv en him up. "You speak of heaven in the same breath with vengeance surely you cannot believe, Jack, that God ap proves of such things. I did wrong you, oh, most grievously; but I have bitterly repented It ever since, and hoped the day might come when I could tell you so. Often I have wept to remember your despair. It ha3 been the one bla'ck spot upon my life, and kept mo from being truly happy. But, Jack, won't you forgive If you can never forget see, I plead with you; hold this wretched remembrance no longer against me. Be my friend, my brother. You already respect my hus band; why be the means of hl3 ruin?" "While I cannot forget, I must not forgive. You have not yet begun to know what suffering means. When the world seems dark and your soul prays for death " '!-,. JUr enncldar; ynn Win not have revenge upon me without In juring ray children," she said, sudden ly remembering his weakness of old, and how a child had never appealed In vain so long as he had a sou left. This was a harder task than the oth er, and the indomitable marquis was compelled to grit his teeth in the en deavor to stem the signs of retreat that threatened to overwhelm him. "I regret exceedingly that they must suffer, for I am not that cruel to desire through their hold on your heart to in flict pain on you; but as I, an innocent party, once paid the penalty of your s.n, so they, too, must Inherit the leg acy." . "Is there no way in which you may be satisfied without the burden falling on them?" "I know of none. They must suffer when you do, all being members of one family. It Is fate." "Jack, have mercy! see, on my knees I beg you to forgive. It Is true I wronged you most fearfully. God knows, I am wretchedly sorry. But out of that wrong has come your bright fortune, and, perhaps, Jack, some more worthy woman may fill the place in your heart I once occupied. Forget the past and live for the future. Grasp them before they have flown. Rise above this spirit of revenge upon a weak, wretched woman, who In her thoughtlessness did you harm and lived to repent. Already you have as you say brought ruin upon us, and cast us out from society. For that I care little; but for God's sake, leave me the love of my husband, my chil dren." It was enough to melt a heart of ice, and reason combined with emotion In the argument. Had not the marquis threshed this same straw himself al most dally had It been thrust sudden ly upon him, he must have been fairly overwhelmed. It was not his design mat Fedora should toe any sign of weakness in his manner, and he maintained the same passionless exterior he had shown through the whole Interview. "I promise nothing. Only this I say, that your children have doubtless saved you from a fate that might have come upon you. I do not relent, I sim ply change my tactics, and for their sakes spare you that humiliation, that shame. What further means of pun ishment I may decide to invoke you will know In good time. As you sowed so must you reap. That is the law of recompense, of stern Justice. There fore, weep over your wretched lot, and bitterly regret that false step in which you were tempted by pride. I do not dare remain here longer in your pres ence. At least thank heaven that I have decided to abandon the plan upon which I was working as unworthy of an honorable man. "You are going, Jack?" "Yes." "Without seeing the children?" pressing a button while he was not looking. "They remind mo too bitterly of what you, their unhappy mother, Beemed to me in the long ago all In nocence and trusting lov. No, I don't wish to see them now." "Oh, Jack, be reconciled I shall pray dally that you cease to hate me, for the sake of those little ones. Did you know the boy's name Is Jack?" "What!" he gasped, weakening. "Do you mean to say your husband allowed you to do that and I the man you loved? Incredible!" "I told him all, and It was he who first proposed It You don't know his generous nature. I can see now what It was so disturbed him you took his fire and freely gave him his forfeited life. Oh! wretched woman that I am to have been loved by two such noble men, and to have brought sorrow to both. Who will deliver me from the bondage of my Bin?" As If In answer to her forlorn cry the patter of little feet sounded some where the marquis, alarmed at his own weakness, turned to fly, but made a miscalculation, for In the hall he was waylaid by the enemy, who rushed upon him with exultant cries. He made a 6woop for the little girl and swept her up in his arms, until her golden curls nestled against his shoul der when he kissed her pouting Hps again and again. Then came the boy, to whom he had paid so little attention before. Now he held him off at arm's length, where he could look into his resolute face and bold black eyes yes, he was surely the image of what Livermore must have been as a lad, and yet, and yet, strange' to say, the marquis actually believed he could see some traces of his own characteristics in the boy learned philosophical and psychological schol ars and doctors have long argued this point, and agreed that it Is not only possible, but actual the Image of her first love still remained strong In Fe dora's heart at the time the child was born. Kissing the youngster, the marquis hastily quitted the house, followed by the anxious gaze of the wretched Fe dora, until the children, astonished at the strange actions of their friend, loudly bewailed his flight, and demand ed her attention. Weep no more tears of repentance and fear, wife and mother, since the seed has been sown and the harvest must come in due season that name of Jack, together with the captain's generosity, proved the last straw that broke the camel's back. CHAPTER XXX. "Love has redeemed me!" The game was drawing near its close. With each struggle that iron will of the marquis, which had been the mar vel and admiration of his friends, came out much weaker. Perhaps the thing that had the most decided influence upon him was the startling convicticn that there had been awakened within his heart a glow of love for the littlo miniature painter. With the flower of love blossoming again In his heart he could hardly have continued in his former policy. Should he be magnanimous and free ly forgive, or should he turn aside the bright vision that tempted him, shut himself up in a narrow compass and carry out the miserable plan of the past? Thus he debated, pro and con. But it chanced that the marquis was not given an opportunity to flglhls battle to a finish In the usually accepted term there was a surprise in store for him, a flank movement, as it were, on the part of one who meant to be an ally, yet proved his worst enemy. That person was the Spanish-American belle of San Jose. It was on the evening following that when the marquis received such a shock at the hands of Fedora. It was probably 11 o'clock when one of the hotel lackey? came with a card on a silver salver and presented it to the marquis. This was a frequent occurrence, but on this special occasion those who were near by saw the usually cool na bob give a plain start (To be continued.) rhotnffraphr F port men. In a recent book a hunter lells how he spent many weary months In the attempt to shoot an eagle, and at last ambushed so successfully that he ac tually touched the bird with his fin gers. Having got so far he was con tent, and let the eagle go free. It may be a hunter's tale, but there are at present a very considerable number ot sportsmen who are a great deal keener to sec their game at close quarters than to kill it. Instead of the old phrase, "Let us go and kill some thing," the hunter now says, "Let us go and focus something." The camera has supplanted the gun. There are now made all manner of devices, more Ingenious and intricate even than the older trappers devised, for getting the camera to bear on unsuspecting ani mals. A boat, resembling a little the duck-shooting boats used on the Irish coast, has been devised, which is pro pelled without oars or sails, and has a beautiful photographic apparatus rigged up In the bows. There are other not less clever means for approaching and photographing deer in their native haunts, and they have been used with altogether remarkable success. Hu manitarians are already pointing that that this sport with the camera gives all the excitement of the chase without any of the cruelty, and at least this much may be conceded, that the diffi culties of photographing, say, a weasel are considerably greater and therefore more attractive than those of shoot ing it. The busiest man on earth is the man who keeps on a continual run getting out of the way of work. An old bachelor Rays that matrimony is the best cooking school.
