The day waa warm no the major's wounds were apt to worry him a good deal in hot weather, but be held his handsome old head none tbe less high. ,. Markham, one of the founders of the club, watched him go for a mo rueut, and then turned to Altman, who eat near him. "One man in a hundred is the major, "said he, "one man in hun dred. ' "Ve," agreed the other;"but what has he been saying this afternoon T" 'Nothing out of the ordinary," re plied Markham, "I was only thinking of hia past generally. I believe that to wi we Deai all-round soldier that I ever k new. Ha has tha oraafoat tipathy for anything bordering on friv olity in military affairs, as you prob ably know.and he declares those boys do nothing but play soldier aa if they o. iu vcura younger man iney really are." 'But doesn't ha see tha o-nnrl alrla nf the question?" aaked Altman. "I suppose he does, but he thinks the Guards ahould be composed of more capable men work inemen who can stand a great deal, and not aristo crats." "But" "Pray don't think I am aunnnrtino- the maior'a viewst mv dear Altman. When I remarked that tbe Guard had been ordered to the mines, be said : I feel sorry for the young men them selves but more sorrv for the state. It ought to send experienced men. t such places if they ever hope to en force ine iaw rigidly and quickly.' very nrm in nia beiiera is tbe major, and the strongest one he baa, however wrong it may seem to us. ia that the Governor's Guards in its present state ia a useless organization. " "For a stranger's opinion that might pass," said Altman, "but the major ought to know better. And 1 am told too that tbe officers are all ex cellent swordsmen." "Yes," said Markham, "so I've beard, and all of which I pointed out to him. But you can't shake the ma jor, bs I said." "Well," returned Altman, picking up bis papei again, "it gives him something to talk about anyway. " Neither he or tbe maior'a old com rade knew the real reason of hia iBst outburst against the Guards in auee tion :tbat reason in the form of a square sheet of notepaper, lay in the major's inside pocket and consisted of a hastily written but entirely earnest offer for his daughter's hand in marriage. The young man who took the liberty was none other than the first lieutenant of tbe Governor'a Guards. Lieutenant Halloway was not a din agreeable young mac : in fact he was quite the opposite. He came from tbe South and of a soldiering family, bis father having lost his life st Cold Harbor during tbe Civil war; be was interested in a well established busi ness situated in the heart of the city his family pedigree was a long one and hia own character and record spotless. "He doesn't want my answer for a week, does be? muttered the old soldier as he marched homeward, "Well, he shan't get it I I'll think i t over, as he asked me to, and not make a hssty decision, but I can tell bim right now wbat it will be. Wo, em pbaticall) !" ' Had the major's good little wife. been living she would have pointed out long ago the possibility of this contineencv and would have prepared him for tbe blow which must fall some day and leave him childless, while some enterprising young man gained a wife: but bis wife bad died many years ago and left the' major with tbe pretty child to bring up alone. From a vivacious, headstrong, pret ty little girl Dorothy had grown up into a beautiful young woman with her mother s sweet face and her fa ther'e will and determination. Entering the door of hia handsome bouse he called as cheerfully aa he could : "Dorothv dauehter!" " Ves father", canie the answer from up staira and tbe next moment tbe face ne loved peered over me nan iater and a small forefinger was shaken warningly at bim. "Ten minutes late, sir", she cried trying to be severe, "wbat doea it mean?" Then she ran down tbe stairs, her pretty face dimpled with happy smiles. "It means, little girl", replied tbe major slowly, taking her bright face between bis two kindly old hands, it means that my daughter has gone" "Gone where, father?" said she af ter one glance at him, for she felt what was coininj. "Over to tbe enemy," returned the major. Then, aa they went arm in arm into the library, he added: "Dorothy, Dorothy to think of you deserting at this time." "But I'm not deserting, dear, I'm not!" she cried. Then abe asked slowly : "What-what did he say?" "Nothing," replied the major shortly, "he wasn't soldier enough for that so he wrote it." "It was not because he wasn't sol Aor nnmiffh. rjuna but because he rli.ln't have time. And now you call bim a coward and be'a up to where those wicked miners are, ana ne may ho trilled " Tbe rest was unfinished, for the tears bad welled up into the pretty v., and the next minute the contrite major waa apologies and declarations of better behavior in me tuiure. "He isn't a coward, papa", mur mured Dorothy from the depths of the ma ior 's shoulder where she had taken refuse attain "and" "My dear child I didn't say he was , remonstrated 111 e nararweu eiu soldier, "and you mustn't cry any mnra. 1 ' All through supper, though she cbstted snd iaugbed brigntly tbe ma jor's old heart was still a trifle sore ; t , i i. rs-i ior ne aepi hsjiuk w uihiddh, wu, half her love is mine and tbe rest be innira tn a Governor's Guard !" That niifht after the evening had worn away and the daughter of the bouse bad gone to bed, the major climbed tbe stairs when he heard a patter of small bare feet coming along tbe entry and tbe next moment a white robed little figure atood beside him. "Yon aren't an err at me. are you. father dear?" ahe asked hugging him lovingly, "and you won't feel bad about it will you?" "Of course I don't," replied the major laugb ing, "but run "acK to bed, my dear girl, or you'll catch cold." "Of course you couldn't expert Tne to feel very gay," he added again, when I'm about to lose a daughter nnar onuld VOU?" "But you aren't," ahe answered; "you're going to find a son Tom asys so himself." Two days later tbe Guards were in the city again. Tbe night they reached the mines id attack had been made upon them by tbe desperate strikers and though they were) taken by surprise, their oBcsrs bad not tost their beads. Using a row of saltbags as breast works tney received tbs charge and repulsed tbe enemy. Then the Guards bad captureu in 01 tneir principal men, driven the rest back to their homes snd waited until tbe Sec- ond regiment arrived on tne scene to relieve them. The latter naving ap peared at last the Guards were ordered home with their prisoners. The pa; pera were of course full of the story of the fight and tbe fact that Lieutenant Halloway was mentioned as one of the most ampler. t and collected officers there did not tend to harden the ma Hr against his would ne son 10 iaw. noe bad also received a painful, though jot serious wound in his left arm from tbs knife of a murderously inclined miner which necessitated his carrying tbe arm in a sling. Later in tne day an sorts or rumors began to fly about tbe town concern ing tne injured reeling" us iub miuci. in retard to the imprisonment of their ringleaders and aa night came on tbe report that they would come to the city in force and endeavor ' to take their men from tbe jail was gaining ground every minute. "That is nonsense, piain anuaimpie, ..iri tha ontain of the Guards when annroached by a newapaper man on the subject. "The mmera have bad a dose they will not soon forget The only danger tbe city now stands in is from men out Of worn, wno are uiauo un perate by hunger and want and who will take to robbing if they cannot find any other way to live. That night the captain's words were proved The maior and Dorothy bad been to the theatre and were inturning home. The night was warm and soft and the moon shone so bright and ciear mat the old soldier and his pretty daughter walked another square before going in the house. The major was about to say something about the silliness of it all, when from behnd them there came a light tread, snd the next moment, without the slightest warning, the kindly old soldier was staggering for ward rrom a stunning oinw on nia aemn, With a little cry ef terror Dorothy caught at him aa be fell, but she was quickly grasped from oenina, ana s hoarse voice whispered in her ear: 'Scream, an' I'll choke tbe life outo' V.. . i i i ,, r : ' uo inrougn nia puuHetit, uuu, continued tbe fellow, who was now binding Dorothy's arms to ber aides: "he wont come to right away, but we've got no time to lose." As be spoke, he picked up tbe short, heavy sties be had used with such murder ous effect a moment before and as be stooped to do so Dorothy sprang away from film and cutanea lowaru tne cor ner. With a muttered oath the man rusbed after ber. Deapite ber clinging skirts and im prisoned arms, the brave girl had gained the corner and waa just turn ing down it, while ber pursuer was still several yards away, when she ran plump into tall, soldierly young man, wbo waa coming up the street with a long, easy stride. "What why, Dorothy you !," he exclaimed as he looked down into her white face but be got no further, for the man was upon them. With another fierce exclamation of disgust and dan ger, for be recognized tbe lieutenant as be turned the corner sod utterly d operate ssto the consequences, he threw b imself on tbe young officer. Halloway stepped quickly aside as be saw bim coming; then, as tbe foot pad missed bis aim snd burled him self at the lieutenant, the latter struck bim a sharp, hard blow just below the ear and doubling up like an empty sack he fell to the pavement without a sound. Then the young soldier sprang to Dorothy's side. "What in heavens name is the meaning of tbis?" he cried, freeing her arms. "There are two of them be struck papa back there!" she answered, pointing to the spot where tbe other highwayman waa still bending over tbe major. Without stopping to ques tion her further, her lover ran quickly up tbe dark street, and made out the prostrate form of the major and the kneeling one of his assailant. Aa he came upon them, the latter sprang to his feet, snd seizing his rwn club struck at the lieutenant viciously, but tbe soldier was too quick for him. Like a flash of light the slender, toueh sword leaped from its scabbard, and as the man's blow fell it waa par ried neatly by the officer's only weap on. Again me buck was raisea aau swung about his head, and aa the man moved hia face came into the aingle patch of moonlight that shone through tne tnic a oougns aoove,ana naiiuwity laughed grimly aa he recognized his antagonist, the man who had wound ed bim at the mines. "So it ia you, ia it, Scarry?' said tbe officer. There was no reply to Halloway'a re mark, but faster and faster rained the blows of tbe frenzied man. At the first clash of wood and metal tbe major bad opened his eyea and struggling to his feet he leaned against one of the trees near and watched the little battle going on before him. "I am sorry to burt you, my friend, said Lieutenant Halloway coolly," but I think you've done enough tonight; and in order to render you harmless will have to He did not finish tbe sentence in words.but before the other could recover from his last misdirect ed stroke he was reeling backward with a stinging blow from the flat of tbe lieutenant's sword. Tbe major, though still dazed.held out hia hand to Tom, whose hand he wrung heartily. "1 hope that villain did not hurt you badlv, major," he said; "and as soon bs I find a policeman and get these two pleaaing individuals in the hand of tbe law before they come to themselves, I will be back to help you home, if you need it" Without wait ing for an answer, he hurried down the street, soon returning with a city officer whom hemet sauntering leisure ly alnne- in their direction. Then he and Dorothy and the major went home. Though the lieutenant's sweetheart had kept back her tears all alnnsr there waa a suspicious moisture in her orettv eyes as they psssed into the hall, but she was smiling bravely nevertheless. As the old housekeeper bustled off to get something to put on the major's wound which luckily was net a serious one the three stood looking at each other beneath the chandelier for a minute. Then the major took the lieutenant's hsnd once again, and put ioroiny-s nine nanu n it. with kindlv amile. "It was one of the finest bits of fencing I ever aa, my boy !" he said with only a slight tremor in his pleas ant old voice, "and a man who can handle a sword ss you can in these de generate daya deservee anything an other can give him.

Two hungry workmen on tbe tramp lately came to a village where lived a Catholic priest wbo wsf known to keep a good table. "Mate, "said one of them we shall get nothing there if be finds out that we are Protestants 1 shall tell him I'm a Catholic." "Do as you please, "replied the oth er. "I shall tell the truth." They knocked at the clergyman's door and asked for relief. His reverence aaked them among other things what profession they belonged to, and they replied as pre viously agreed. Then he bade them wait and went back into tbe bouse, returniug soon afterward with a couple of plates, on one of which was roaat duck and on the other a little boiled rice. "Friend," he aaid, addressing the soi disant Catholic, "aa it is fast day I have nothing better to give you;but as for you," be said, turning to the other, "being a heretic you care nothing for fast days and may there fore eat meat."

The young man had bis best girl with bim and be wanted to tell her about it Besides be was not interest ed in the subject wbicb tbe lecturer waa'discussing, "The American Indian as Use of Guards". The girl waa pret ty and to whisper into her little pink ear was a pleasure that few young men would have resisted. Tbe lecturer was annoyed. It did not please him that anyone ahould not listen atten tively to hia words. Not a soul in tbe bouse was making a noise except tbe yrung man, and as be had hia moutn close to tbe girl's cheek very clote. Indeed be waa not particularly die orderly. But tbe lecturer waa annoyed. Finally he said impressively: "I will pause until the young man in tbe back nart of tbe house atom talking." Then be stopped. For perhaps 30 seconds though it seemed two minutes, the iecturer said not a word, and tbe young man continued to tell the girl all about tbe aubject on wbicb be bad started. Auditors turned around and atared at him, and he waa the centre of interest. For a time he was oblivious of the attention that be waa attract ing, ami then he noticed that the lec turer waa ailent and that all eyes were directed on him. Then he real ised what tbe lecturer had said about pausing until "tbe young man in tbe back part of the bouse steps talk ing. He appeared to think that be would aay aomethiog and he addressed the lecturer, saying, with great cor diality, "Go right ahead ; you are not bothering me." New Yotk World. A VaraaoaH Hepsiblleaa.
