WESTON, UATBLLA COUNTY, OREGOrJ, JULY 1:7$ 1885,
A TIHELT DUCLASrKE.,
. Cairn dale was a gTand aid estate a
quaint stone mansion set in the midst
of smoothly-cut lawns, . luxuriant far-
dens, a border of thick woodland. Old
Rafus Cairn could draw the interest of
his fortune by tbeusands, -and he 1 had
shares in several successful enterprises,
a man to be envied by right of wealth
and position, yet a man that found little
pleasure iu life, alone and lonely in his
line homo, with luxuries he could not
enjoy, and riches that did list bring him
Hi stood one day at the window of his
library overlooking the well-kept
grounds, and deep lines settled between
his heavy gray brows.
"What use is all this to me?" he mut
tered. "I was far more content wben.a
lad without a penny in my pocket. Yet
how different all might have been if she
had come to brighten my life;"
Then his thoughts wandered bajk to
the pust when he had dreamed of love
and happiness, and a fair girl's face
shone upon him like a guiding star to
lead hiro on. ' .
Stella Gaylor was not to blame that
her heart, turning trom her elder, re
served suitor, went to the keeping of
handsome young Percy Trafton, but up
on Rufus Cairu the blow fell heavily.
tie never saw her after her marriage,
but now and then came hews to him,
and when Percy Trafton was deserted
by the Goddess of Fortune that all the
while was bestowing his best gifts on
his rival of past years, a stray hank
note found its way now and then to bis
humble home, with no clue to the send
er, and so perforce it was used.
Rufus Cairn was thinking it all over
as he stood there alone, and his face
urew almost tender with the influence
of sweet, half-forgotten memories.
"And now she is dead," he thought
with a sigh. "Percy Trafton too is
none. Let me think six months since
I heard of his death. I wonder what
became of their daughter."
Then it was a strange tancy came to
him, and out of that fancy resulted the
arrival of Sybil Trafton at Cairndale.
A tall, slender eirl with a face like
that of Stella Gaylor in her youth, ovalt
delicately-featured, pansy-eyed, and set
iu a frame of golc' -brown hair. - She bad
the same graceful way, the low, sweet
voice, the gentle disposition, and Rufus
Cairn's heart, dead so long to feelings
of affection and pity, grew tender at
sight of her.
OTtiere. wre ethers in the old .mansion,
Sybil Traftou's aunt, Dudley Courtney,
a son of Rufus Cairn's only cousin, his
half-sister Alice, and her friend Edyth
Lynn with her brother, Gerald, a merry
party and one that appreciated and en
joyed the old man's hospitality and
wondered a little at the motive that
must actuate it.
Dudley Courtney was a handsome
man, polished and of suave manners;
the fair beauty of Sybil was a magnet
for his fancy, and it chanced they spent
a great part of the time together, while
Rufus Cairn looked on well pleased.
One day he summoned Sybil to the
library and there disclosed his plans.
"1 loved your mother," he said in his
grave, earnest way. "tier memory is
the dearest thins my heart can
cherish, and what 1 would have done
for her take I would now do for yours.
I am an old man, rich, and without
nearer relative than Dudley Courtney.
I do not wish my estate and fortune to
go outride the family, therefore I leave it
to you aud him on condition that you
"Marry oh "
"Heor me, it is my dearest wish.
You two 'young people I care more for
than all others why should yeu not
unite aud enjoy iny wealth together:
Dudley cares lor you, -I know, aud sure
ly you do not dislike him."
"Far from it, but "
'I have set my heart upon it," con
tinued the old man, persistently. "It ia
for your own welfare. If he refuses, all
will go to you if you refuse, neither
gets a penny."
"Cut that is unfair, Mr. Cairn," cried
Sybil. "Do you not see the injustice
of your plan? He is nearer to you than
I. It would be crul."
"Then mwy him if you do not wish
to see him deprived," retorted old Ru
"Do not answer hastily. I will give
von time to consider it. There, go now
und make vour derision."
Sybil left tho room iu perplexity, and
at the same time a movement of the
heavy curtains at the other end betray
ed the presence of a listener. It was
the form of Alice ( ourtuey that glided
cuntiously away, and there was a flash
on her cheeks, a gleam in her eyes that
bespoke restrained emotion,
To her own room Sybil went, swiftly
locking the door behind her, and pneiug
to and fro with clasped hands aud
though tfnl face.
"What a strange whim," she thought
L marry Dudley Courtney on, 1 can
not. Perhaps be will not consent; but
he does not know yet. Rufus Cairo has
watched him and thinks he is in love
with me. It I refuse he will be de
prived of all this wealth that is so un
just. Perhaps I would learn to care for
him if it were DM for Philip. Dear
Philip, I wish for his sake 1 might gain
possession of some of this wealth, yet
there is no hope unless Dudley Court
ney refuses to marry me."
A blush suffused her fare; her eyes
drooped. She thought of the atten
tions that had been lavished upon her
during the past weeks, the earnest
glances, the half-tender speeches; and
there came to her a conviction that he
would not refuse, ttmt beared for her
as old Rufus Cairn desired.
The Hays went Vy, Dudley Coartnsy
became more devoted to Sybil as time
passed, and see mod in no way discour
aged by her - calm, reserved : manner,
that would have repelled a lau ardent
soitor. ' ' '
, Alios Courtney's manner took on
new degree of affection, and in erery
passible way she endeavored to win
Sybil's interest for her brother. As the
young girl onee declared to herself,, it
would Dot be a difficult task, to learn
to care for handsome Dudley Courtney,
were it not that another's image rose as
a barrier between them. .
Not once aid Sybil swervo in her4
faith to her absent lover,' yet she was
reluctant to speak her mmd to I'ufus
Cairn she, so waited, hoping ttat. he
would relent, .and release her fji the
conditions he liad imposed . ,
One day at twilight, Sybil, sitting
lone in the dusky shadows, the heavy
curtain that half covered the broad
windows concealing her slender form,
heard the sound of voices in the hall
without, and a moment later Alice
Courtney's light tones broke the Bt ill
ness that pervaded the darkened room.
"Sybil, are you here?" '
Leaning forward to reply, Sybil start
ed as a hand caught her own in a firm
grasp and a fingvr was laid lightly np
oc her lips. Into tbe recess where she
sat Rufus Cairn had come, and now,
standing beside her, he bent and whis
Wondering, she leaned back., in her
chair, and then came the sound of an
other voice, a voice that, had often
thrilled her with its low tenderness.
"No one here, Alice?" '! -
"No. Sybil must be in her room; It
is nearly time for dinner. Now tell me,
Dudley, when are you going to speak to
"This very night." ;
"Are you sure of success?"
"I think the girl loves me."
Sybd started again, but again a de
taining hand held her back, j
"Yes, you have played your cards
well, Dudley, but yon always were an
adept at love-making. ' It seems to me,
though, that her manner is scarcely " .
"Natural reserve; that is all. Oh,
Alice! why could not the old man have
made me bis heir without bringing in
."True; bat. having done so yon must
accept her as a necessary evil. We can
not do without this fortune; you kuow
tbatwell'L . . ; r. .. .; ..
''Too well. I anf glad yon overheard
the interview between them, else we
should never have known. I paid her
attention at first because she was pretty
and took my fancy, but of late it has
been quite a different matter."
"To-uight, then, you will speak?"
"Yes wish me luck, though I have
played the role of lover well and dare
say will gain the prize."
"Well, I am goiug to dress for din
ner." TbV voices ceased, there was the
sound of retreating footsteps, and then
old Rufus Cairn, dashing aside the cur
tains, drew Sybil out and across to the
entrance of hU library.
"Come iu here," he said, hoarsely, "I
want to speak with you."
With the lights lit and old Rufus sit
ting opjiosite her, Sybil raised her flush
ed face aud startled eyes to those of the
old man, and saw them dark with anger
and chagrin. '
"You have heard all," he continued
hastily. "That man is the one I would
have made my heir, would have given
you into his keeping, and he was woo
ing you because he loved, not you, but
my money. Wretch wretches, both
of them; I will have no mare to do with
them. As they passed through the
hall I was about to come trom this room
and, standing on the other side of the
door, I heard Alice say: 'We duped
them easily.' Those words aroused my
suspicions, and you know' the rest.
Now, Sybil, you shall have all."
"Wait, I have something to tell you.
Sybil cried, and so disclosed her secret,
her doubts aud hesitation, her love f o r
Philip Earle, and tbe old man heard
with lowering brows. ,
She, too, had deceived him, ha said,
and refused to believe her innocence.
On the morrow the whole party left
Cairndale, and with a heavy heart Syb
il left the presence if the old mac,
whom she pitied and cared for despite
his harshness. " i
A week later a letter reached her in
closing these lines. 1
"Come back to me, Sybil; I was but
testing you. All I have is yours, but
oc one. condition: I want to see you
well settled in life you shall marry
Philip Earle. He is a good man, else
he would not have won your love,
Come, both of you, t" your old, lonely
friend. Rufus Cairn.

Washington, July 4, 1885,
While walking through the Navy
Yard the other day, I met Commo
dore Sicard "Thip, said the Com.
modore, , holding up i chocolate
colored, - six-aided prism ' an inch
and a half iby diameter, with a round
hole through, it, and weighing ever
two ounces, 'this ia a grain of the
celebrated cocoa powder i of which
yon have heard bo much." "Is it
tnado of cocoa?" I asked, , ,2go,
there is probably not a partipla of
ccooa in it. f It takes its name from
its; color, but its' composition, ia a
profound secret. It is made abroad
and furnished to the world at a
reasonable rate, but I think we
shall soon be able to make it our
selves. There are experiments go.
ing forward here which we expect
to bt crowned with success. The
particular points of exceller.ee of
the cocoa powder over the old kind
are that it burns slowr at the be
ginning and more, rapidly toward
the end. In other words ' it has a
tendency to burn more rapidly un
der increasing pressure. With the
black powder it is difficult to keep
down the pressure, but it requires
high pressure to make cocoa burn
rapidly." "In the cocoa powder
economical" "No, I cannot- sav
that it is. it takes a good deal of
it to impress a high velocity to a
projectile. But when everything
is properly adjusted it is not im
possible to give a Telocity of more
than 2,000 feet per second to a pro
jectile." I thanked the Commodore
and was giad to note another evi
dence that our Nary was waking
Numerous stories have been pub
lished in regard to the physical
condition of Hon. Malcolm Hay.
First Assistant Postmaster General.
He certainly has the appearance cf
being in poor health, lie sits in
an armed easy-chair, with his head
resting languidly back upon the
cushion. He is very pale, and his
voice sounds like that of a sick
man, or of one who is just recover
ing. from.- a severe - tUtteqa.' I - am
told, however, that he is not by
any means so bad off as he has the
appearance of being. He is really
no worse than he has been for a
number of years past He is a
very conscientious man, and at'
ands to his work very diligently
and carefully. He is not a strong
man physically, to be sure, but he
carefully husbands his strength and
accomplishes a great deal. " He
works at his correspondence every
night after he has gone hr-me, and
thus works off verv much mere
than would be supposed."
A good story is teld of one of
the recent Western appointees in
the Treasury Department He
had only just been installed, when,
happening into one of the other
offices, he beheld a silver truy and
pitcher. His own room was furn
ished with an ordinary earthen
pitcher and tumbler. The silver
tray took his eye, and, returning to
his room, he wrote a requisition for
one upon the Secretary. The Sec
retary reaa the requisition and re
turned it with the verbal message:
"Tell Mr. that he better get
the prairie mud off his boot-heels
beforo he sends to me for silver
Mr. Hay is something of a civil
service reformer in his way. He
does not always please the Con
gressmen and Senators, who have
sometimes crowded him pretty hard
tor appointments for their constitu
ents. He is determined that Con
gressmen shall be- held responsible
far the recommendations which
t ley make, and has sometimes
been rather pointed iu the questions
he, has asked. He manifestly be
heves in doing business in a busi
ness like way.
.Postmaster General Vilas is tne
last man in the Cabinet who was
expected to be a civil service re
former and yet I was told- by a
candidate for office to-day that he
lectured nearly every one who calls
upon mm on tnis suojecc "It is
extremely difficult to see the Post
master General at all, and when
one does see him it is only for a
minute, and it is rather monotor
nous to have that minute occupied
with a lecture on civil service re
form. Bot that is tbe way very
otten, said this gentleman.
The single rate letter postage
law, which reduces the rate to two
cents an ounce, instead . of two
cents for each half ounce, as here
tofore, has made very little change
in the business of the Department
But the change is in the line of a
reduction of taxation and will be
universally welcomed. Tbe present
limit stops tho flew of affection,
description and business often at
tbe most interesting point Under
the new law, some of the favorite
and well-worn excuses for cutting
a letter short become unavailable,
but as the act says nothing against
a sputtering pen, or thick ink, or
tbe mail closing, or the end of the
sheet, or the baby waking Up, cor

Be Forgot A Little Formality-, -
A well-known gentleman of this city,
who holds a public office of considera
ble importance and honor, although not
extraordinarily productive of emolu
ments, is a victim of defective memory.
He lately speut some time in New York
and while there, in furtherance of polit
ical or some other ead, arranged to give
an elaborate dinner to a numerous and
disringuished company. The appointed
evening arrived, the collation, an ele
gant ose, was already to be served,
but the gaests came not. Half an hour
