said the clerk, examining the ledger.
"Whew !" whistled the landlord.

"Plenty of friends now, but let them
find out that he is broke, and they'll be
off like a convey of birds."
'I must see him ; and the hotel pro
prietor walked out upon the piazza, ap
proached a young man leaning against
one of the front pillars.
. "Mr. Watson, your bill, I see, is in ar
rears one week over tl.e settlement day.
Why is it ?"
Tho young man flushed at first as if in
anger ; then a pwiie overspread his hand-
some face. "I know 1 am a little delin- 1

"Then I am to understand that you arc,

"Sorry, Watson, for you have been a

a fear apparently, which made
Percy shv rather than haughty : and
Watson began to catch glimpses of a
character beneath all that couventional
veil which he had not expected to find.
Of course the wealthy Miss Oromancs
would scorn his further relations. Her
rooms were near his own second floor
apartments: she dailv, all the season, had
encountered him in his walks through
tha lnii corridor, and must have been

dressing-maid had made special inquiry
into his cane, seeing her iu confidential
confab with the floor-stewardess and room
girls. So Watson, with a reserve or pride
not entertained with others, kept apart
from Miss Oromanes.
On that third evening of his changed
fortuues, when the Sappho of the Cas
cades annihilated him, greatly to the
pleasure of the youns; "bloods" around
her, Watson wandered away at length
upon the piazzas; and through the loug,
deserted halls, restless, thoughtful, di
gesting the notes which ho had been ta
king of human nature, and trying to fix
the relative value of a man without mon
ey. It was the crystalline he was learn

fifth story. It found the Romantic Rob
ert m bed ; but the letter was tlung iu
over the door ventilator.
"A letter for Monsieur Watson from
my lady," said a voice at the door; and
Watson sprang up as the envelope floated
down to his lcet.
"A note from my lady !" What on
earth did that mean ? Another rumpus
experience, ! brewing of course ! Turning ou the gas
he read astonished, pleased, delighted,
as the rich color mounting to his temples

"You are very good, Major, and I
guess I'll have to consent."
So the baggage of Robert Watson was
lifted'and borne from the elegant suit on
the second floor to a little seven by four
teen room on the fifth floor.
How quickly it became known that
the change had been made ! Every serv
ant in the house betrayed the knowledge
in the absence of the usual deference paid
to the possessors of "parlors." At dinner,
the "boy," who had been too eager to
anticipate Mr. Watson's wants, suddenly
became oblivious to those wants, and only
answered theui after repeated orders.
The cashier and register clerk, always so
obsequious, gTew dignified and indiffer
ent. Only the urbane Major preserved
a kindly greeting for his guest too poor
to pay his bill, and remaining by suffer-ance.
"Queer," thought the hotel proprietor. I
"He certainly had money enough when
he came, for he deposited a cool five j
thousand in tho safe. He hasn't been j

been so good that-the young bloods have j

his bill was unpaid, he was the happier,
because wiser for the upward reverse.
Suddenly, in his solitary promenade,
he confronted the heiress. She was walk
iug arm in arm with young Evans, of her
"set," in confidential communication it
would appear, else why should they have
been in that long hall alone ? asked Wat
son, as, with a glance, he took in the situa
tion. The meet in r was a surprise to both
parties, and the inclination of both men
was to pass without recognition. Evans,
indeed, frowned ; Watson flushed iu
anger, and with head erect bore down
and passed his enemies, like a suspended
or cashiered officer of the line, conscious
of bis soldierly qualities, but equally con
scious of his "altered circumstances."
' Too high he held his head, in fact, fcr

Watson, hailing from Baltimore, had
been a season guest at the Cascade.
Friends he had in plenty. He was cour
ageous, well-bred, good-looking, intelli
gent, and, apparently, rich what more
could be asked ? Among the ladies he
had moved quite a prince ; and many
were tho gossamer web? woven as toib

all were agreeable to him, deeply so. for
he seemed to enjoy them immensely; but
not the brilliant poetess, Miss Mountjoy,
nor tho coy and artless Miss Dumain. nor
the rattle-headed young Miss Lambert,
nor the very rich Miss Oromanes, ap
peared to command him. He was to all
alike, the agreeable companion, the can
did friend, the shrewd resisant of all arts
to lead him into love's labyrinthine
How would all these beauties of the
saloon receive the announcement sure to
be made of his "altered circumstances,"
as the Major expressed it ?
Evidentlv Mr. Watson was not indif
ferent. He still frequented the piazzas
and parlors, giving every friend, male
and female ample opportunity t6 "cut"
hia acquaintance, or otherwise to express
themselves. It was somewhat curious to
note the progress of his decline, not fall,
for Watson had that iu his character con
struction which, even if poverty and trial,
would preserve him from a sacrifice of
personal dignity and self-reliance. But
that he was on the decline became to him
a sorrowful fact.
Sorrowful did we say ? That is, jugd
ing by the usual standard of human fe
licity or misery. To lose one's friends,
to behold your position in society grad
ually slipping away, to realize that no
longer you are held in coveted considera
tion by a chosen few, is, ordinarily, a
source of sorrow. Hut in Watson's case
it was difficult to tell how keenly the
knife cut to the quick of his sensibilities ;
for, while every acquaintance was given
full facilities for doing the disagreeable
office of giving the "cold shoulder," the
Baltimorean appeared like an interested
spectator, and was as unmoved when
passed by a supposed friend without the
slightest notice, as if he were a newspa
per reporter, anxious to see the act and
not the fact.
Into the parlors during the evening he
particularly pressed his way. If a bevy
of gay fellows surrounded Miss Mountjoy;
he worked his way to the circle, and, at
last, received from that lady of Sappho
like lips hia discharge. She did most
gracefully and crushingly turn her back
upoD hina not three days after his remov
al from the second floor.
Miss Dumain he sought, confident that
one so artless certainly would be above
the hollow-hearted crowd, and etill give
him her friendly greeting. Vain con
ception ! The artless girl was ooy indeed ;
and when at length he cornered her, it
was to his discomfiture. She suddenly
turned and forced her way past him,
without even one of her downcast glances.
On the contrary, her eyes were fixed fully
on his faee, and plainly said, "Sir, we are
Next he tried rattle-headed Miss Lam- '
v bert, and ahe rattled on quite as usual
but Watson soon discovered that the rat'
tie was not for him.
Strangely enough, and proud and ex
elusive Miss Percy unbent somewhat
from her lofty carriage, and gave him a
welcome ; .but over it all as a shadow
"Dolt," he hissed.
Watson passed on, staying to make no
apology, but he heard the lady say :
"Fie, it is nothing;" and he was con
scious, too, that she was looking at him
! An hour later Watson was down on
the piazzas again, evidently on the quest
i for some person, and he found his man
! ere long. Evans was the gentleman
wanted. Going up to him Watson said :
I "Mr. Evans, what was the word you
j used at the time I trod on the trail of
iMiss Oromane's dress?"
I "I said dolt, sir ! and I say it again.

his hands were clenched as if to strika ;
by a Etrocg effort, he mastered his pas
sion. "Evans, no gentleman ever would have
uttered that sentence. Only a coward
would liing another's poverty in his face.
Miss Orcmanes, educated as 6he has been j
to give virtue to wealth, might find in j
my inability to pay my hotel bill a jusci- '
fication for dropping my acquaintance;
but I doubt if ever she would have coun

give it to her ; but you I hold in su
preme contempt even to exchange words
with you. Hereafter do not speak to
me, for if you do I shall slap your face,
eveu in the presence of ladies." And the
speaker went his way to his attic room.
This scene, overheard by several gen
tlemen and ladies, soon was the talk of
the rooms. Evans, being a recognized
leader of a very aristocratic circle, soon
convened others of the 6et, and Major
Snow was, ere loug, summoned to be in

The Hon. Jno. E. Sanford. Iusurancc Commis
sioner of Massachusetts, in his Report for 863,
speaking of Dividends in Lifo Insurance Compa
nies, says , ' The sooner such guarantees cease
to be made, and such expectations created, the
sooner Life Insurance will come to rest on itstruo
motive, and men insure their lives for security,
and not for dividends. The best and the most
popular companies will then be those that prom
ise only equity, and render all that they promise,
and furnish the best security, with tho most up
right and judicious management."
