dropped his pen, startled, nnd liis

quired the voiee.

sequious senior partner. "I am Mr.

nnd, with the timely aid of samp-
fcon, hail succeeded in clearing his
fair name of every suspicion. " The
people began to see how they had
wronged the young man, and,
their anger cooled
mounted higher against the Colonel. |
When public opinion had reached
the boiling point, the Colonel's castle
was stormed and sacked and Guy's
last glimpse of the fallen idol was
caught from the procession that i
wended its way down the main street
and out of the town. Jleforc these i
irate citizens returned, the train j
from the west had arrived and de-
parted, and Guy had gone with it.
His airy dream of a fortune had
been snuffed out like a candle in fill!
glare. Ilis inheritance, all that had
been saved from the wreck of his fa-
ther's estate had sunk from a value
of many thousands to a few paltry
hundreds. The dream was past. The
stern awakening was nt hand, and
there was nothing for him but work.
As he toiled over some one's set of
books, he could reflect philosophical-
ly on the "rigor of the game" that
had wrecked him.
Miss Hetty wns the one bright spot
in nil that chaos of maneuver, plot,
•ounterplot nnd checkmate. He was
in love with her—hopelessly, he
feared, in more than one sense of the
word. Had Concord won the county
Feat and had he, in the "boom" that
followed, realized a small fortune
out of his lots, he might ha\e prose-
cuted his suit, wooed and won. l.et
sentimentalists prate as they nun,
success in business very often goes
hand-ill-hand with success in love.
Uesides, Guy had a reserve of pride.
How could he face .Miss Betty and
tell her that the son of Montfort
Herbert had hardly a dollar that he
could call his own? No; he would
"buckle in," make his mark nnd then
go to her. Months would certainly
elapse, perhaps years, but if his love
could not withstand the wear of time
wherein was it worthy? If she cared
anything for him she would wait. On
ttic other hand, if she did not carc
for liini she would marry some one
else and he would face the future in
n manly way and do his utmost to
forget. It was wise counsel that his
lu-.irt took from his head and he set
nlkuit his plans with courage nnd de-
lie made Jamestown his Mecca and
there he found a loan and invest-
ment concern in need of 1111 assistant
bookkeeper. He passed an examina-
tion. was found competent and en-
tered at once upon his duties. Ilis
weekly stipend was $00—not half the
pooket money his indulgent father
had at one time allowed him.
It is very easy to work toward ti
goal as bright as the one Guy had
6et for himself nnd it was astonish-
ing how he made shift to economize.
Week by week more than half his
salary was laid by and, when n
month hnd passed, he was so hungry
for news of Concord and Miss Hetty
that be wrote a liue to rcttibonc.
to see him a moment.

hastening toward him. "At last the

gloved hand which lie accepted in a
perfunctory way. "Why did you fold
your tent and steal away in such
nomadic fashion, Mr. Herbert?" she
"I did not know that any one
would care," he said, lamely,
'You tiid not care anyway, that is
certain. I am a very persistent per-
son, however, as you must know by
this time. I found that Mr. I'etti-

"It is, indeed." She spoke care-

Once when Chief Justice John Mar-
shall was driving in Virginia he found
that the tire on one of his wheels
was loose and kept slipping off. He
didn t know a great deal about com-
mon affairs, for he had not lived
much with the common affairs of lifi',
but he did know that water would
tighten a tire 011 a wheel. So he
came to a little branch and drove into
it and got one little section of the
wheel wet, then drove out and backed
his horse, and the same part of the
wheel went into the water again, and
he pulled back and kept see-sawing
backward and forward, all the time
getting the same part of the wheel
wet. says the Argonaut.
While the judge was bothering him-
self about how to get the wheel wet
n negro came along, ami, seeing the
situation, told him to back into the
water again. He did so and the negro
took hold of the spokes of the wheel,
and, turning it around, directly had it
wet all around. Judge Marshall said:
"Well, I never thought of that."
The darkey replied: "Well, some

| "Wc recall an incident," sujs the
| editor of Zion's Herald, of Boston,
j "which occurred many years apo, and
which was lery influential in helping
the writer to correct notions concern-
ing the daily press. In a private cir-

gently but firmly: 'Gentlemen, you

dispensable for the dissemination of

Alice, who was five years old, was
often asked to run errands for her
mother. She went very willingly if K|le
could pronounce the name of the arti-
cle wanted, but she dreaded the laugh-
ter which greeted her attempts to pro-
nounce certain words. "Vinegar" was
one of the hardest for her. She never
would go for it if she could help it; but

lutely necessary to send her.
