of wealthy piirunts, hnvlusr
been brought up lu luxury ami
a good education. Her mother
died when she was 12 years of ago,
leaving her father to rear his mother
less child as best he could.
Ills business did not prosper after
his wife's death, and through tho dis
honesty of his partner ho became al
most reduced to bankruptcy. He went
to work with the men that ho had for
merly employed, working night and
day, straining his eyes to their utter
most, ami dually causing total blind
ness. At this ho sold his property und
Marlon was obliged to go to work.
She engaged ti small tenement and
searched dally for work, but to no
nvnll. On returning homo one dny,
tired and disheartened, her father said
to her: "Marlon, Mrs. Young called
here to-day, and Is going abroad with
her husband, und would like to Und a
trustworthy person to take the euro of
her little boy, Harold. She heard of.
our circumstances, and thought that
you might take this position as govern
ess, and yet be near your old father.
What do you think about It, my dear?"
"Well, father," said Mnrlon In a
cheerful tone, for slio never allowed
her father to see her downhearted, "do
you think that you could stand the an
noyance of this child, for ho Is but ft
years of ago and has been Indulged
"My daughter," said her father, "It
does seem as If this Is a plan by which
you can meet tho expenses and yet bo
near mo during the day."
Nothing more was said, and tho fol
lowing tiny Marlon called on Mrs.
Young and everything was settled sat
isfactorily. She brought Harold homo
with her, for he had been attracted to
Marlon at once, and Mr. and Mrs.
Young were to snll tho following day.
Tho Youngs were people of wealth and
attended the same church as Marlon
had done from childhood, and they felt
well pleased at being able to lltnl such
a trustworthy person with whom to
Marlon wits lu the habit of taking
Harold for a stroll during the latter
part of the day, and It was during one
of these strolls that Harold exclaimed:
"Why, auiith, wo meet that gentleman
The gentleman, hearing tho remark,
turned and said: "Good-afternoon."
"(lood-afteruoon, sir," said Marlon.
"I'anloii me, but tho child called you
'auntie.' May I ask If ho Is your

"O, no, sir! I am Miss d'roy, and hnvo
charge of him for a few months while
his parents are abroad," said Marlon.
"I am fond of children, and I should
Judge that this lad Is about tho same
ago as my young brother, whom I hnvo
not seen since a babe." After haying
n few words to Harold, he wished them
good-afterunnu and passed on.
Marlon called Harold and walked
leisurely home, little knowing what au
Impression she had made on this now
acquaintance. I'pon entering the house
Harold exelalniid: ''O, ginntlpa, wo
met a real nice gentleman, and he
talked with auntie!"
Mr. Grey made no reply, but during
tho evening asked Marlon who tho
gentleman was. Marlon teplled that
it was one that they had met fretient
ly lu their strolls, and Harold had
opened tho conversation by his child
ish remarks. "Ills name Is Mr. Iteg
Innld Stacey, and ho lives next door,"
"Stacey!" repeated Mr. Grey. "That
sounds familiar. I once had dealings
with one by that name, but ho has
As time passed the meetings between
Marlon and her ft lend became more
frequent, and what was at iirst a meio
acquaintance soon ripened Into a deep
direction, until one day Reginald said:
".Mai Ion, I am going away to complete
my education, but there Is something
Hint I wish to tell you before going."
"Mnrlon, I have loved you from llrst
sight, my dear," said Heglnnld.
"IJut, Iteglnald, what of my father?
I lovo you. but I cannot lenvo him,"
"You and your father shall never bo
separated," he answered.
After spending bomo time In ranking
promises and endearing words, he
bade her a fond gooil-by.
That evening Marlon told her fnther
tho whole story.
A little later on sho received letters
from Heglnnld, and often wondered
why ho did not speak about his people

Mnrlon, looking up, exclaimed: "O,

In a fond embrace. At this moment
Mnrlon's fnther and Mr. nnd Mrs.
Young entered the room, nnd Marlon
demanded nn explanation from them,
which Mrs. Young lnughlngly gnve.
"1 was once Mrs. Stacey, and my son
nnd 1 were separated soon uftor his
father's death. I then married Mr.
Young, whose son you have had tho
care of during the Inst year and one
half. Iteglnald had not seen Harold
since n baby, and, as I had not told
him the name of the person with whom
I had left Harold, ho did not know ho

felt strongly nttrneted to him. After
ho came abroad to us and told us of
you, wo decided to keep things hidden
from you until his return, wishing to
surprise you and your fnther. We will
be happy to see you nnd Heglnnld nnd

SAVED FROM DEATH BY VAPOR.

Hy the timely prevention of a strango
law of nature little known save to
Hclcullllc men, one of the workmen nt

from what, under oidlnary circum

Connor hud got himself. Heading over

some of tho men had already turned

Not a dlsllguretnent, not a burn, not

A patty of excursionists vls'tlng n

during tho summer went out one line
morning for a sail. There were several
enthusiastic amateur photographers nn

"snap-shots" of the shore scenery as
they sailed along they did not notice
that the wind was freshening and the
lake becoming rough.
At last, however, an unusually high
wave rocked the boat, nnd one of the
young men standing near the gunwale
lost his balance und pitched headlong
Into tho water.
Ho was a good swimmer, but It was
several minutes befoie the boat could
be rounded to, and when ho was Dually
