"Jim, lad," interrupted his Bister,
"you'ro forgetting yourself?"

was born back o' th' White Moss" (in
dicating that locality over his shoul
dor), "Toppleton way."
Thus tho full, quaint nnd careless
stream of li is talk tlowed on, meander
ing about one person and another, this
subject and that. Ho seemed a well of
curious and fcarsonio Lancashire lore
loro of tho days when spinning and
weaving were dono in tlio cottage homes
of remote hamlets nnd homesteads,
when Lancashire energy applied itself
to sseful work and not to useless toil,
when its fabrics were inado to bo worn
and not merely to bo sold tho days
when tho steam engine was not yet
with ita all-devouring, all-enslaving ma
chinery. Wo had talked thus for ato.it an hour
or, rather, listened to Mr. Birley
talk when ho paused and looked round
(ho had been fidgeting in his chair for
"What's got 'Manule?" ho said, ad
dressing his sister. "Is he stuck till
midnight in his laboratory again?
Doesn't seem aa if that smoke was to
come off tonight. In Paul's house now
it used to be 'Smoko where you please'

I was netonisliod and alarmed to see
Misa Laciolx rise hurriedly, and glide
without a word from tho room. Mrs.
Stoinhardt made aa if she would follow
her, but she did not. She sank back
in her chair with a sigh.
"Jiml Jiml" sho exclaimed, re
proachfully. "Why will yon (toy
things, when you know the poor girl
cannot bear allusions to it?"
"Ah," said Ilirley, humbly. "Poor
lassl Her father," he explained, turn
ing to me, "has never como back from
London. Poor Paul!" Ho was visibly
"He had to go to the law courts
thero," said Mrs. Steinhardt, "moro
than a year ago, about some dreadful
business of tho chemical works ho w as
my husband's partner."
"Hildersheimer v. Lacroix and Stein
hardt" (Frank turned on tho music
stool to correct his uncle's pronuncia
tion.) "Well," said he, "that's all
right; anyway that was the case.
May be" turning again to mo "you
romembor it in tho papers. It was
about tho infringement of a chemical
patent 'Manuel had put them up to in
bis eternal laboratory."
"Nay, uncle," interrupted Frank,
flushing up. "It wa8nt' father's fault
moro than anyone else's."
"Ay, lad," said Birley, "of course
yon know all about it. But you'ro
right to stand up for your father. How
eror, Paul, as tho chief of the firm,
wont up to London to fight the case; ho
fought and lost to tho tuno of 20,000
pounds damages which, I suppose,
drovo him mad, poor fellow, for bo's
never come hack mado away with

made away with."
"But, surely," interrupted Frank
again, "it could hardly bo tho damages

to Paris after tho trial about some pat
tern business for tho print works, and
then got back to London again."
"Ay, lad out 20,000 pounds dam

the way to Paris and back. At any

"It ia a very extraordinary affair,"
said I. "But I dont' remember seeing
anything of it in the' papers."
"It got into tho papers, though,"
said Birloy, "to somo extent not
much. We didn't want a nolso about
a private, painful thing like that,."
"But," said I, wondering, "I sup
noso inquiries wero made?"
"They made inquiries high and low,"
said Birloy; "they laid detectives on,
and everything, hut nothing came oi it
Did thero. Frank?"
"No," said Frank "nothing at all."
"Did von try to traco himoutof Lon
don?" I aBked. "I supposo they did,"
"Yes oh vcb," said Frank.
I wondered that Birley should keep
using tho word "they." Had he borno
no sharo in tho investigation himsellY
I had my thought answered at once.
"I wasn't nblo to go to London my
self," said Birloy; "I was laid up with
a broken leg; and, when I got better, I
didn't think It was any ueo my going
Thero waa nn end of Paul that was
certain; for ho wasn't the man to knock
under ko. and got lost just."
In a llttlo whilo Miss Lacroix re
turned, with apology for hor with
"I had a Iittlo of headache." said sho.
I now saw more clearly the encroach
ments which grief, and what I cannot
describe by other words than "anxious
waltlng,""hml made on n young llto
which would, unopprosscd, I was sure,
have boon so full of spirit nnd mirth.
I longed there and then with an earnest
desire that I might do something to
brighten hor life, to remove tho weight
of uncertainty and grief which burdened
it, nnd preyed upon it.
But I had little further opportunity
for talk with her that night. In a low
minutes Mr. Steinhardt returned. Wo
heard then what wero the cansnlties re
sulting from tho falling of tho boll
tower. A horso had boon killed, as,
alto, had been a sow with her litter:
nnd two pigs had been so injured that
tho butcher had to no summoned. vt o
wore now invited into tho smoking
room; but Mr. Birley rose, and said ho
must bo going; ho would smoke his
pipe on tho way home "wr th parson.
"Parson smokes, I suppose?" said
he, laying his hand on my shoulder.
So ho and I departed together, tlio
valley was asleep under n white pall of
fog: but tho weird tongues oi llamo
still flickered on tho slopo and ridge
behind nnd beyond us (from coke ovens,
mv companion explained), and tho tall
chimneys dreamily and intermittently
smoked. Tho great chimney of tho
chemical works, however, emitted not
so much smoko as a thin pinkish vapor,
which stole away imperceptibly over
tho neighborhood to poison nil green
things, nnd to filter through tho cracks
and crevices of doors and windows, to
trouble sleepers with lethargy and head
ache. "By Georgo!" exclaimed my compan
ion, "lio ll get nneu again somo uay.
Paul used to bo always at him about it.
So ended my first ovening in Timpcr-
ley a memorablo evening for me. I
had tnado tho acquaintance of one
whom I have reason now to call as dear
a friend aa I havo ever known, and as
tood a man as fortune has ever ne
glected, nnd of another who is now the
dcareEt of all earth s creatures to me.
I frequently looked in upon tho
ladies at Timpcrley Hall, nnd toot a
four-o'clock cup of tea with them (not,
however, to the neglect of other, if less
pleasant, parochial visitations). Dur
inc theso visits we talked without that
constraint which somehow Mr. Stein-
hardt's presence imposed upon us.
Miss Lacroix and I agreed in our opin
ions concerning the ruthlessnees with
which Lancashire pushed on, its Indus
trial way: wo often nstoniBhed poor
Mrs. Steinhardt (sometimes even our
selves) by tho warmth with which we
would discuss the outrage dono to man
One afternoon wo talked thus. It
was well on in springtimo; tho stream
was running full nnd all nature, in
epito of drawbacks, was striving to look
creen. l told tnem now mat morning
I had stood by tlio little plank uridgo
iust below Timpcrley Hall, look'ng
across at the dreadfully lumbered little
peninsula on which tho ruinod spinning
mill stood, when there turned up at my
elbow an old man whom I knew by
sight as an ex-handloom weaver.
"A fino brook, that, parson," he
"Yes." said I, suiting my. reply to
what I thought his persiflage; "what a
pity no trout seem to know of it!
"Ah. but," said he, sadly, "there
wero trout in it wonst; though there's
been none for mony a day. Trout!
Aw defy onything to hvo in that, bout
gettin' cured first, like a red herrin' or
a snllymander! Thero was a lad
drowned like as it might be this spring,
nnd he were never found till like as it
misfit be next back end. down thoer in
that mud; he were not gono at all, but
lie were cured thro' nnd thro ; black,
This I told; and then I continued
"Drowning, they say, is nn easy death;
but to drown in such a stream as that
seems horribly repulsive. I fancy no
one would caro tocommit suicide in it."
I perceived my stupid blunder ns
soon as I had spoken; I had not
thought that what I said could betaken
as "allusive" to tho disappearance of
"Excutomo," said Misa Lacroix, rig'
ine hurriedly. "I do not feel very well.
Do not como, Mrs. Steinhardt; I shall
get better by mysolf."
I of courso mado apology to Mrs
Stolnhardt for my stupidity.
"Yes," said sho; "you seo she can't
bear any kind of allusion to her
father's end. Sho told mo Boon after
sho camo hero (eho couldn't, you know,
go on living In that big house up thero
all by herself) she told me a strange
dream she-had onco or twico when her
father was missing tho strangest thing,
hut I scolded her so, she has nover said
another word to mo about it, bull I
fancy sho thinks a great deal about her
father, though sho does not say mucii;
they wore rare and fond o' one another."
That vory ovening I unexpectedly
learned from Miss Lacroix herself what
that strange dream was. I waa return
ing by moonlight from tho house of a
parishioner along that same road wliicii
first brought me upon tlio valley. Pass
ing tho pond on my right (which I be-
foro montioned as reflecting the lighted
windows of tho many storoyed mill), I
observed a figure, cloaked and hooded
standing on tho margin of tho pond
undor ono of tho trees. I paused a
minuto, whilo my heart beat with ap
prehension, and then I pasted througl
a gap In tlio lenco and approaciiod
Tho figure turned quickly, as if impa
tlcnt at tho Intrusion, and In the pnlo I
moon light 1 roeogiiUod tho face of Allan
'Miss Lnrrolxl" I exclaimed.
'Oh. Mr. Unwin." sho began, In
evident tension of holing, "I could not
rest indoors, nnd so I en mo down to son
Undo Jinnies; 1 could not remain with
him, ami so 1 camo out hero to look at
this, which aUays fascinates mo.
I stood bv her side and looked; this
is what 1 saw : An inverted reflection
if tho tall chimney of tho chemical
works which was omitting, as it often
did lute in tho ovening, its strange
pinkish vapor; this vapor in tho reflec
tion looked as if it wore slowly rising
from tho Ixittom of tho md, and, ns
Its color blended with tho tints tho
water somehow took ns tho lireer.o ruf
fled it this way or that, produced tho
impression of a slowly simmering caul
dron of red, green, nnd copper-brown
flame. This was so wonderfully wotrd
a fancy that I confess I folt my skin
creep. I turned my eyes away, nnd
then looked again, and again, out the
impression was ever tho same.
"It's indeed very strange! l s.ild.
"Is it not?" said sho. "You see it
also? Mr. Unwin," sho wenlon, turn
ing suddenly to mo, nnd speaking with
n vehemence which increased as tho
words came, "I havo wished to toll you.
You are a clcrgvman, and must hoar
mo mnko my confession; nnd you will
keep it secret to yourself. You havo
heard, crhaps, that my father my
dear father! is thought to bo dead,
now just a year ago?"
"I have," said I.
"He went to Iindon and to Paris
on business, nnd ho never camo back.
It happened whilo ho was nway that I
lived all by myself at home. I slept
sound that night without dreaming,
when suddenly I had n dream. I saw
vapor or llamo slowly rising just like
that I saw a man plunge into it, and
I knew the man was my father I felt
ho was. I awoko nt onco nil trembling
and did not go to sleep again. That
was all my dream
"Are you sure." I said, "that you
had not heard somo one Mrs. Stein
hardt, for instance suggest that ho had
been drowned, anil then you wont nnd
dreamt of tho peculiar appearanco of
"No, np, no! sho protested with
rapid voliomenco. "Did I not say that
I dreamed it tlio very night on which
nil traco of him was lost from his hotel
in London? Noliody thought then that
ho was not coming home soon. And I
do not think 1 had noticed this pond
then. I have dreamed tho same dream
several times since, but that may bo
nothing at nil. I shall very likely
dream it tonight."
I turned nwny from tho pond and
she followed me. Wo walked along in
silence for some distance.
"Oh!" she exclaimed, at length, "I
do long bo very much to know what has
rpally happened to my dear father my
"I wish 1 could hclpyou to una out,
I said; "indeed I do. You may ho
sure I shall think of nil you havo told
me, and shall try to discover anything
more. I have friends in Ixmdon who
may be of use, if I may mention it to
"Oh, certainly, "sho answered. "You
are very Kind. Bacon's Hotel, Great
Queen Street, is where ho was last
At a certain corner where tho lano to
Timperley Hall diverged from the way
through tho village, she insisted on
parting from me. I let her go with lit
tle hesitation, for I knew there waa no
fear of her being molested.
It may bo presumed that whilo I
smoked my post-cocnal pipe I thought
over tho strange sceno at the pond, and
all that MUb Lacriox had said. It was
certainly vory mysterious, but all the
conclusion I could reach concerning it
that night was a resolve to go and look
at the pond by day.
(To be continued)
Where the House Acted Hastily.
The house does funny things some
times. It passed a bill the other day
establishing a lighthouso on the coast
of North Carolina. The second section
of the bill provided that the "act ap
proved March 3, 1001. bo, and the
same is horoby repealed." The act
thus wiped off the statute books at one
fell swoop waa tho sundry civil appro
priation bill, which appropriated mill
ions and millions of dollars for the ex
penses of tho government. In tho sen
ate the bill waa amendod bo ns to be
leas swoeping in Its effect. Washing
Industrial Consumption of Gold.
The industrial consumption of gold
in tho United States in tho calendar
year is estimated to havo been f 10,
007,500, anil in the world npproxim
lately $75,000,000. Although the
United States led tho world last year in
tho prodction of gold, our imports of
the motal exceeded our exports by tho
sum of f 12,800,101. Tho stock of gold
coin in tho country, including bullion
in the mints, at tho close of tho fiscal
year was estimated at $1,124,052,818,
and the stock of silver coin at f C10t

Most compliments sound something
liko this: "Thoy say ho is n thief, but
ho nevor stolo anything from mo It
mny bo because I havo watched him
closoly, but bo far I havo novcr missed
anything." When you feol that your
friend doservos praiso, why pay tribute
to his enemies in praising him?
"Who was that you just spoke to?"
asked the first Chicago woman; "his

"I bolievo," said tho other, "his

"Oh! to bo sure. How stupid ol

DUcliilliie In Very Hlrel.
The discipline Is very strict nnd the
enforcement of penalties moro severe
than In the army. Examinations arc
held In January and June, and cadets
found prollcleut are given their proper
standing, while cadets who are deficient
are discharged. The examinations aro
exceedingly hard, and there Is none
which does not bring out n large num
ber of failures. Cadets are nllowcd but
ono leave of absence during ths four
years' course, and this Is grnnted at tho
expiration of tho first two years. The
pay of a cadot Is $540 per year ond In
sulllcleiit for his support. The number
of students at the acudemy Is usually
about 4$0, each Senator, Congressional
district and Territory also the District
of Columbia being entitled to one
cadet, while thirty appointments at
largo aro permitted the President of
the United States. But all the places
are not, at all times, filled. There aro
at present three cadets, from Vene.tiehl.
Costa ltlcn and Ecuador, who wero per
mitted to enter by special act of Con
gress and who pay their own expense.
Appointees to the academy must be be
tween 17 and 22 years of age. free from
physical Infirmity and able to pass ,i
careful examination In reading, writ

Since the establishment o' tho acad
emy over -1,000 cadets hove graduated
nnd among thorn have been not only
somo of tho foremost miliary men of
the country, but also distinguished
civil engineers and noted college pro
fessors. Gen. Wlnlleld Scott onco said: "I
glvo It ns my Hxcd opinion that hut for
our graduated cadets tho war between
tho United States and Mexico might,
and probably would, have lasted some
four or livo years, with, In Its first half,
more defeats than victories falling to
our share; whereas, in less than two
campaigns, we conquered n greot coun
try nnd established n peace without tho
loss of a single battle or skirmish."
Its Influence was also great In tlio
Civil Wnr; and this may bo said with
out reflecting In any manner upon the
thousands of gallant nnd resourceful
volunteers who pushed their wny to
the head of tho nriny. The two great
generals Grant and Lee wero WcBt
Pointers. In tho recent Spnnlsh-Aincrl-cim

not play so Important a part.
