Smith, who came from Cold Spring to
work .during harvest for Mr. J. S. Mor

one of the wheels of a threshing ma

dcan ibg Smith's hand in between two
cogged wheels. The result was a bad

Th j little finger was found so severely
crushed that the surgeon considered it
advisable to amputate it at the secoud
joint. This finishes Smith's harvesting

Two men, named Kearney and
Sharer had been working for Mr. Rich
ards near Centerville. They roomed
together. Last Friday Kearney an
nounced that his money had been
stolen. This induced Shaver to look
after his coin. It also had disappeared
to the tune of $31.25. Suspicion point
ed to Kearney as the tl.ief. lie was
arrested, tried and bound over to ap
pear before the next grand jury. A
misunderstanding arose as te the proper
person to take him to Pendleton, Be
fore it was satisfactorily arranged
Kearney skipped, vamoosed, vanished,
fled. His abiding place has not yet
been definitely ascertained. Mr.
Shaver, our informant, feels indig

insists that it looks too tnucb like a
"put up job," as Kearney after having
been convicted aud placed uader $250

who in turn turned him over to some
one else, who turned him loose, or al
lowed him to escape. As wi only have

She stood at lh window,' gazing out
upon the fast falling ain and the
dreary, half-deserted street Sweet Et
ta Leigh, pekiU, hrown-eyed and brown
haired, not beaoty, bat a very lova
ble little creature. Just now there was
a perplexed frown npoa her white brow
and in her sott dark eyes a look of anx
iety and indecision. v; v' !U : f
."Oh, dear!" she exclaimed aloud.half
petulantly, "I do wish I knew bow to
decide. It is a momentous question for
a young girl to answer for herself; yet
mamma refuses to influence me by her
opinion, and papa! oh, I know lis
wishes upon the subject. It's just like
a scene in a pity er a novel. The hero
ine of the story that's myself? receives
an offer of marriage frou a wealthy old
man; she does not care a copper far hir
ancient lover, rather dislikes him, in
fact; but her father -there is always a
cruel parent' in the play or the novel
is determined upon her acceptance, and
-and- I just will not doit--tbat's all!"
And she brought her little foot down
upon the carpet with perhaps a little
more emphasis than was necessary, and
went on with her soliloquy:
"If I had never seen Will Raymond
I still do not believe I could decide to
marry old Meridith with all his money 1
But Will and I are betrothed, and 1 do
love him with all my heart. We are
young and we can wait. I know that
Will is bound to succeed his business

provide tor a wife. Yet I'd like to be
She relapsed into silence and stood
staring out of the window, with the
rain drops dashing themselves to pieces
against the crystal panes, and tne large,
datk eyes grew thoughtful.
"Yes, I would like to be rich," she
resumed slowly; "only think how nice
it would be to have every wish grati
fied! Mr. Meridith is able to grant ev
ery desire of my heart, to give me a
magnificent home, diamonds I've, want
ed a diamond ring ever since I can re
member fine dresses, foreign travel!
Oh, dear! why can't Will have all these
tilings to offer me? But no, if I marry
him I will have a neat little white cot

be a. plain gold band, I shall never trav

and life will go on 'like a tale that is

life that halt the married women live,

She turned away with a half sob. She

your heart, no! but I think there are
few women who would not have devot
ed time and thought alike te to the so
lution of so important a problem.
Even as she stood there, turning over
and over the vexed question in her
mind, the rain ceased, the clouds rolled
away, old Sol peeped out from behind a
misty white veil, pedestrians began to
peur upon the ram-washed streets, and
then the door-bell rang.
A few moments later Mrs. Leigh open
ed the door of her daughter's chamber,
where the girl had beeu passing the
"Etta, my dear," she legan pleasant
ly, "Mr. Meridith is in the parlor and
would like to see you."
Etta arose from the low rocker in
which she had been sitting, and, woman-like,
glanced into the mirror. No
fault was to be found with the dainty
white lawn dress, and the smooth braids
of nut-brown hair were irreproachable.
She sighed plaintively. I.
Mamma," t he said desperately, "he
is going to ask me to marry him, I feel
conviiied ef it. Tell me what to do."
Mrs. Leigh tried to force a smile to
her own troubled face.
"My dear," she said, "1 cancot. Both
these men are good men. Mr. Meridith
is rich, however, and can grant you all
your wishes that is, all that money
can buy. But if you love Will, Etta,
your own heart ought te be the most re
liable judge in this matter. I could not
sanction a marriage devoid et affection;
I only advise you net to be hasty, but
weigh the question on both sides care
fully and decide for yourself. God help
you and oless you, my child!'
And Mrs. Leigh kissed the girl's
smooth cheek ere she went down stairs
to receive her eldarly traitor. For Etta
was correct Arnold Meridith, who bad
already asked her father's permission to
address her, had ceme to woo in propria

man, rather portly, with iron-gray hair
and beard, arose to greet her. Etta's
heart grew cold as she conjured up a
vision of a fair, earnest, manly face.
with waving golden hair aad eyes as
blue as the sky which smiled down up
ou her throngh the open windows as she
quietly greeted her caller,
He proceeded at once in a business
like way to lay before her the advan
tages ef a anion nhh himself, and urged
her ejficrly to become his wife. It was
evident that Arnold Meridith was deep
ly in leve with Etta Leigh. Her dark
eyes met his gaze unflinchingly.
"Mr. Meridith," she said slowly,
do not love yon I "
He checked her impetuously. .
"I do not expect yon to love me new
at first. I am willing to ! take yon
just as yoa are, Etta, and love will ceme
in time. I will ; grant year slightest
wish. Yoa shall have an income ot your
own, besides jewels, fine dresses, your
own carriage every whim shall be grat
ified, Etta; yoa will have everthing!"
" "Except love!" whispered a yoise in
ber heart, . r . .
"I thank yon for the honer that yoa
do me, Mr. Meridith," she faltered;
"bat I cannot accept; for I have no
heart to give, and I Will aeVer marry
without love I " -
The old man started to his feet, pale
and panting with anger.
"I know!" he sneered derisively; "you
are too much in love with young Ray
mond! Yeu haven't heard, I suppose,
that he is to be married soon te his rich
cousin. Miss Steele, from the South."
Etta fell back a Step and her face
grew deadly pale. J "
She knew that Miss Steele had ar
rived a week before on a visit to her rel
atives, the Raymonds and yes it
was true; Will had not called upon her
since his cousin's arrival. j
, She made no answer to the crnel
words, but there was an awful pain in
her heart as she stood there, j . . '
It is said that the evil one always
helps his own, (not that I am certain of
his claim upon Mr. Meridith, but it
seemed so at that moment) for just then
down the street there dashed an open
carriage, and seated within were Will
Raymond and a beautiful, dark-eyed
woman, elegantly attired. ;, '
Mr. Meridith laughed a mocking,
sneering laugh. ,'
"There they go bow," he said; "looks
as it there were some truth in the ru
mor, does it not!" -
But Etta's mind was made up past al
teration . ;
"I cannot be your wife, Mr. Meri
dith," she cried, "whether he be true -or
false; I cannot premise to 'lore, hsnor
and obey' a man for whom I cherish
neither honor nor respect."
Mr. Meridith's face was ashen white.
He bowed freeziqgly.
"As you will, Miss Leigh," be said
coldly. Then he bade her adieu and

Will Raymond was her betrothed hus

So my unorthodox heroine did not

many persons who

this sura to live upen. That filty
cents a day is a generous estimate
will bo admitted when it is remem
bered that many mill operatives
earn only from fivejto seven dollars
a week, and that the wages of farm
hands run from twenty to thirty
dollars a month, arid that on these
sums several persons are often sup
ported. Wnen it is remembered,
too, that some other human beings
have a yearly income equal to what
is necessary for the subsistence of
500 or 1,000 of these "averase"
