Two Chapters of a Life.
"Going, going, gone 1"
The auctioneer was u fine-looking
young man, and the melody of bis rieb,
deep voice called In many a paaeor-liy
from the sidewalk. We are too late, as
be has made bia last sale for the tiny,
and is just leaving the store. We can
follow him, however, and see whither
be goes so hastily. He soon turns
from the busy thoroughfare Into a quiet
street, and, alter walking several blocks,
ascends tbe steps of a somber building,
on the door of which is a large brans
plate, bearing this legend:
"YOUNG LADIES' BOARDING SCHOOL."
Kot at all abashed by this impresstvo
notice, be jingles tbe door-bell and se
renely awaits a response. Being ush
ered luto tbe parlor, be asks to see the
Priuuipal, who presently rustles iuto the
room, the customary beulguaut smile
wreathing her countenance. This smile
extends beyond its accustomed limits at
sight of tbe young man, aud verges on
to something like genuine cordiality.
"Mr. Cbauning, I am truly delighted
to see you. oa have been quite a
stranger to us f r some time. Miss
Mary has be rtal'y alarmed about

Mrs. Lake. Surety one of my vigorous

"Xo, I am glad to say. I do uot ; yet I
cannot chide your abler for reeling a
lull uneasy when she does uot bear
from you fur more thau a Week, and
your boardiug-house only a few squared
away. However, I will go ana an
nounce that the cause of her troubles is
id tbe parlor."
Boon after Mrs. Lake's departure,
Mary Cbannlni; entered tbe room, and
continued tbe lecture on her brother's
"Well, well, Mary," said be, at last,
"I plead culltv. But I fear wbat I
have come to say will not, under tbe
circumstauees. prove verv accentable.
I have just received a call to go over to
J , anu sen out a large stock of dry
goods. A good commission is offered
me, and I hope to make a neat little
sum be Tore I return. I eball be gone
about three weeks."
"I should not feel your absence so
keeuly, Norton, if you would only be eo
gracious as to urop me a line ooea9lon

good health. You seem to forget that
lire in a boarding-school is not the
most cheerful existence In the world:
and, although Mrs. Lake, aud in fact
everybody here, is very klud to me, yet
It is not at all pleasant to never get a
glimpse of a home-face the only one
that is left me now."
There was just a dash of tears in Iter
blue eyes as she said tbls, and her
brother, fearing a calamitous couolusiou
to tbe interview, hastened to add a few
comforting remarks, and, by dint of
some extravagant promises of future
correspondence, averted tbe threatened

Norton, meanwhile, was thinking of
ner. i tiey were orpbaus, and she had
that unbounded faith in his strontr. in
dependent nature which an afleetiouate
child feels in its father. He had noticed
now her cheek fluohed at the name of
Walter Thrope. "Walter Is au excel

His thoughts were Interrupted by au
alarm or .lire. He fell Iu with the
crowd that always springs, like niRgic,
iuto life at that dread cry, and vonn
reaoneu tne hurtling building. It was
one of those wooden tenement houses.
ami the fire had ma!euch headway be
fore It was observed that the building
was aireauy reduced to a shell.
"There is some one in that third-.Mory
window," shouted a man, and Instantly
the gaze of the crowd wa fixed uimmi
the form of a little eiri that leaned far
out in the vain Msaeb for some means of
eecape. .A ladder was hastily ulnced
against the wall, but it was several feet

"A man eoold stand on the topmost

"Too late," was the reply. "That
wall could untsopiiort amau's weight.'
Norton's Hps paled, aud his heart
grew sick, as he saw the wretched child
thus left to Its fate.
"What if Mary should ooie day be
pertnl in tins way : lie thought.
"Ob, I cannot see her die without mak
ing an effort to save her."
Hastily muffling his face In his coat,
he Jarted up the ladder. Half way up,
he heard a warning crack, aud, ere he
could retrace his step, the wall ami
part of the roof fell, and he was hurled
in the ruins. The child, beiug higher
up than be was, fell directly in the cen
ter of the flamee and perished. The
firemen, who had just arrived, mauaged
to AVht their way to where Norton lay.

'He Is dead," said oue. j
"No, be has only fainted."
"Stand baek ami give him air." said
another, preeeiag forward as eloeely as
No one wa able to identify tiim. and
so his crippled and senseless form was
earteu on to tne city Hospital.
"Little girl, is this Fifteenth alieet?"
The child screamed iu terror, and ran
aeroas a vacant lot. The man staggered
aejaiost a lamp-poet and groaned :
"O God, am I then en hideous?"
Ten years had pissed since Norton
Chaniiiug came out of that city hospital
cruelly deformed by that terrible fall
iuto the fire. During all these long
years he had lived the life of a vaga
bond. His one aim had been to keep
from his sister the knowledge of his
mifortuoe. He hail contrived to keep
track of her without exciting suspicion.
He knew that elie was married to Wl
ter Thorpe three years after the night of
the lire, and that she was now living on
Fifteenth street. His eyes had been
dimmed in the flames, and he could
see distinctly but a ehort distance. Yet
he had a vagoe hope that be might
look upon his sister's face once more
without her recognizing him. A hot
fever was burning in Ills veins, aud be
felt that lie was sick unto death.
"Marv inusn't know," he muttered,
feebly ; "it would make her tiuhappy to
hear of my misery. Better she should
think me dead, as I soon shall be. No ;
Mary mustn't know."
As he staggered on he came to the
gate which the child he hail addressed
had left open, as site ran through it to
the house. She was now in the arms of
her mother, who bad been attracted to
the door by her screams, aud was now
giviug an excitable narration of tier
escape from a drunken rnau.
"There he is now, mamma."
Norton Cuanuiug t-upportetl himself
against the fence, aud turned his ills
figured countenance toward the mother
and her child.
- "I would not harm you, little one,
for all the world," he said, brokeuly.
Tbe mother's cheek paled at thesouml
of that deep voice, and she said, huskily:
"Who ate you, sir?"
It was bis sister's voice, and a great
fear took hold uton him.
"She muatn't know. Mary mustn't
He made an effort lo move away
from tbe fence, but his legs tottered
uuder him, and be lell senseless to the
pavement. They carried him tenderly
into the house, aud summoned a physi
cian. "He cannot live," was the verdict.
"Ills constitution was shattered by an
accident ten years ago tills evening. I
remember distinctly; it was the first
surgical examination I attended after

"Walter, it must be Norton," said
Mary, trembling violently ; "It 19 just
ten years ago that be left me so myste

There was no lack of kindness now.
The aching head was tenderly propped
up on pillows, aud the fevered temples
bathed. After afew hours the blurred
eyes opened wearily.

mourning for the dead. The Egyptian
women ran through the streets crying,
with their bosoms expowed and their
hair disordered. The Lyclans regarded
mourning as unmanly, aud they com
pelled men who went Into mourning to

Is tbe most certain and rapid through real es

more Inducements to tbe public than any
other on the coast at this lime, as tbe price and
payments are within tbe reach of all. Do not
let this chance pass. Buy a lot. build, and
make yourself Independent. Many of yon

for rent than would purchase a lot and build a
roof over your bead. Yon then would be Inde-
Iiendent ol exacting landlords, and In truth

Tbat not many year ago some of the best lots
In san Francisco were sold for an ounce of
gold dust, ami that now they could not be

wise to "despise Ibe day of small things.'

while A Is not Injured thereby. Tbls philoso

center on the Pacific Coast lays In close prox

estate In lurtland. Inasmuch as this Home
stead was advertised to be sold for a stipulated
price before the recent advance, unpleasant as
It Is, we shall strictly adhere to our advertised

The two hundred lota that were reserved for
