The motion of swinging a partner back to position by an encircling arm puzzled him somewhat as he contemplated it, but Lucia kindly came t his assistance, and twos done almost before he knew it done altogether too quickly, in fact. And although be hon estly endeavored to analyse the wickedness of it, and to feel horrified and remorseful. bis mind utterly refused to oboy bun.

ASTER Philip Hayn retired from his second evening in New York socie ty with feelings very different from those which his rather heavy heart and head had car ried down to Sol Mantring's (loop only a abort week before.

Not many days before, even this sort of attention would have made him un comfortable, but the experiences of his even ing at Miss Dinon's had impressed him with the probability that ha would be to a certain degree an object of admiration, and he waa already prepared to accent it aa a matter of course vsry much, In fact, as ha had bean taught to accept whatever else which Ufa) seemed sure to bring. LXJCKr Of one thine he felt sure: Lucia did not re- sard him unfavorably. Perhaps she did not Jove him he was modest enough to admit that there was no possible reasou why she should yet she had not attempted to with draw that little hand bless it I when he was covering it with kisses. She had appropriated him, in the loveliest way imaginable, not only once but several times during the evening, showing marked preference for him. Per haps this was not so great a compliment as at first sight It seemed, for, bold his own face and figure in as low esteem as he might, be nevertheless felt sure that the best looking young man in tllss Dinon's parlors was plainer and loss mauly than himself. But if bcracocptanaeof bis homage and her selection of him aa her cavalier were not enough, there was that jealous look, twice repeated. Hs informed himself that the look did not be come her; it destroyed the charm of her ex pression; it made her appear hard and un natural; yet be would not lose the memory of it for worlds. Could it be true, as he hod heard while un intentionally a listener, that ber father was not rich! Well, he was sorry for him; yet this, too, was a ground tor hope. After what he had heard, it was not impossible to be lieve that perhaps the father of the country youth, with his thirty or forty thousand dol lars' worth of good land, which had been prospected as a (Kaaible site for a village of seaside cottages for rich people, might he no poorer than the father of the dty girL It seemed Unpossible, as he mentally compared the residences of the two families, yet he had beard more than once that city people aa a class seemed always striving to live not only np to their incomes, but as far beyond them as tradesmen and money lenders would al low. Aa to the talk he had heard about Miss Dinoa, he resented it, and would not think of it as in the least degree probable. To be sure, be would not believe ber SA, though if she were be heartily honored her that she had lived so well as to look for younger than ber years. Still be was not to be bought, even by a handsome and Intelligent woman. It was not uncomplimentary, though, that any one should have thought him so attractive to Miss Dinoa a woman whom be was sure must have bad plenty of offers in her day. But should he ever chance to marry rich, what a sweet and perpetual revenge it would be upon people who had looked and probably talked as if be were aa awkward country youth) Then came book to him suddenly in aD their blackness his moody thoughts over the obdurate facts in the case. Prolong bis but terfly day as long as his money would allow. he must soon return to his normal condition of a country grub; be must return to the form, to bis well worn clothes of antique cut and neighborly patches, to the care of horses. cows, pigs and chickens, take "pot luck fat the family kitcben, instead of carefully lecting his meals from long mua of fare. In stead of attending receptions in handsome bouses, be must seek eodery in church socia bles and the hilarious yet very homely par ties giveq by neighboring farmers, and aa occasional affair, not much more formal, hi the village. It was awful, but it seemed inevitable, no matter bow he tortured his brain in trying to devise aa alternative. If he had a little monev he might speculate in stocks; there, at least, he might benefit by hi acquaintance with Marge; but all the money be had would not more than maintain him in New York a fortnight longer, and be had not the heart to ask his father for mora. His father! what could that good.m'ich abased man bo already thinking of biro, that no word from the trav eler had yet reached Hayn Form! He would write that very ight or morning, lata though it was; and be felt very virtuous as he resolved that none of the discontent that filled him should get into his letter. It was nearly sunrise when he went to bed, From his window, eight Boors from the ground, be could see acroat the ugly boose tops a rosy flush in the east, and some little clouds were glowing with golst under the blue canemy.

"Tell me all about it. Who was there I" continued the drowsy girl, rub bing ber eyes, pushing some crinkly hair be hind her ears, and adjusting some pillows so that she might sit at ease. Then she put her bands behind her bead, and exclaimed, "Why dont you go onf I m all eara." Lucia laughed derisively aa the pulled an ear small enough, almost, to be a deformity. then tossed wraps and otber orfioles of attire carelessly about, dropped into a low rocker. and said: "Only the nsnal set were there. 1 danced every dance, of course, and there was plenty of cream and coffee.

Good news flies fast; the upward tendency of iron was soon talked of in' New York's thousands of down town office, where, to an outside observer, talk seems the principal in dustry. Men in other businesses that were depressed began to consult iron men who had weathered the storms and endured the still more destructive calms of tbe long period of depression.

If the upward movement of iron was to continue and become general, Tramlay would un doubtedly be anioug those who would benefit by it.

CONTINUED NEXT WEEK. The MAIL, Per Year, Only $1.50 EOPLE'S PARTY PLATFORM A Terse and Comprehensive Declaration of Vital Principles. The People's party assembled in na tional convention at Omaha on July 4, 1U2, nominated James Baird Weaver. of Iowa, and James Gaven Fields, of Virginia, lor president and vice presi dent of the United States respectively, and adopted as its preamble and plat form the following: Assembled upon the IlSth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence the People's party 01 America, In their first national con vention, invoking upon their action the bless ing of Almighty God. pats forth, in tbe name and oa behalf of the people of this country, th following preamble and declaration of princi ples: Tbe conditions surrounding as best jastlf v our ee-operatlon; we meet la the midst of a nation brought to the verge of moral, political and material ruin. Corruption dominates the bal lot box, tbe legislatures, the congress, and touches even the ermine of the bench. The people are demoralized; most of the states have been compoiled to isolate the voters at the polling places to prevent universal intimi dation or bribery. The newspapers are large ly subsidized or mauled; publlo opinion si lenced; business prostrated; our homes eov ered with mortgages: labor Impoverished and the land concentrating in tbe hands of the capitalists. The urban workmen are denied the right of organization for self protection: imported pauperized labor beau down tbelr wages; a hireling standing army, unrecog nized by our laws. Is established to shoot them down, and tbey are rapidly degenerating into caropean conditions. The fruits of the toll of millions are boldly stolen to build np colossal fortunes for a fow. unprecedented In the his tory of mankind; and the possessors of these, in turn, dosplse the republic and endanger liberty. Prom the same prolific womb of the governmental injustice we breed the two great classes tramps and millionaires. The national power to create money is an. propriated to enrich bondholders; a vast public. debt, payable In legal tender currency, been funded into gold bearing bonds, thereby adding millions to the burdens of tbe neonle. silver, which has been accented as coin since the dawn of history, has been demonetized to add to the purchasing power of gold by de creasing the value of all forms of property aa wellaa human labor, and the supply of cur rency Is purposely abridged to fatten usurpers. bankrupt enterprises and enslave industry. A vsat conspiracy against mankind has been organized on tbe two continents, and it is rapidly taking possession of the world. If not met and overthrown at once It forebodes ter rible social oonvulatona, the destruction of dvtllzalion or the establishment of an absolute despotism. n e have witnessed for more than a quarter of a century the straggles of two great politi cal parties for power and plunder, while griev ous wrongs have been Inflicted on the soffer- tng poor, ne charge that the controlling Influences dominating both these parties have permitted tbe existing dreadful conditions to develop without serious effort to prevent or restrain them. Neither do they now promise as any substantial reform. They have agreed together to ignore in the coming campaign every issue but one. They propose to drown the outcries of a plundered people with the ttproar of a sham battle over the tariff, so that capitalists, corporations, not tonal banks, rings. trusts, watered stock, tbe demonetization of silver and the oppressions of the usurers may aD be loaf sight of. They propose to sacrifice our homes, lives and children on the altar of Mammon; to destroy tbe multitude In order to eeoore corruption funds from the mlllfcsa- aire. Assainlili A on the anniversary of the birth day of the nation, and fUlcd with the spirit of the grand generauea who established our Inde pendence, we seek to restore the government of the rrpublle to the hands of "the plain peo ple," with which class it originated. We assert oar purposes to be Identical wit the parposes of the national constitution to form a mora perfect Union, establish justice. Insure domestic tranquillity, provide tor the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the Messing of liberty for ourselves and oar posterity. e declare that this republic can only en- dare as a free government while built upon the love of ibewhole people for each other and for um nation: n cannot oe pinsea logetner ny bayonet: that tbe civil war is over, aad that every passion and resentment which grew oat of It mast die with It. and that we most be In fact, aa we are in name, the united brother hood of free men. Oar country ends itself confronted by condi tions for which there Is no precedent In the history of the world: our annual agricultural predortiona amount to billions of dollar la value. Which most within a few weeks or months be exchaaged for bQilona of dollars of commodities consnmsd la their production; tbe existing currency supply is wholly inade quate to make this exchange: the results are falling prices, the formation of combines and ; rings, aad the impoverishment of the pro- dosing class. We pledge ourselves that if given pow.r sr will labor to correct these evils by wise and reasonable legislation. In accord ance with the terms of our platform. w e believe that the powers of government in other words, of the people should be ex pended (as la the case of the postal service) as rapidly and as far as the good sense of an in telligent people and the teachings of expe rience shall justify, to the end that oppreseioo, injustice aad poverty ahall eventually cease In the land. While oar sympathies as a party of reform are naturally upon tbe side of every proposi tion which will tend to make men Intelligent, virtoons aad temperate, we nevertheless re gard these question Important as they are ea Secondary to the great banes now pressing for solution, aad upon which not only our in dividual property but the very existence of free Institutions depend; anfl are ask all men to first help as to determine whether we are to save a republic to administer before we differ as to the conditions upon which it Is t. be ad ministered, believing that the forces of reform this day organized will never cease to move forward until every wrong is remedied and equal rights aad equal privileges aecarely es tablished for all the men and women of this country. We declare, therefore That the union of the labor forces of the Cnlted States this day consummated ahall be permanent aad perpetual- mar its spirit eater into all hearts, salvation of the republic aad the uplifting of mankind. Wealth belongs tn him who creates it, and every dolls." taken from Industry without aa equivalent la robbery. "It any man will not work neither shall he eat." The Interests of rural and el vie labor are the same: their ene mies are identical. We believe shot the time has oome wbea the railroad corporation will either own the people or the people must own the railroads, and should the government enter upon the work of owning and managing any and all railroads we should favor aa amendment to the constitution by which all persons en gaged In the government service shall be placed under a dvll service regulation of the most rigid character, so at to prevent the in crease of the power of the national adminis tration by the use of such additional govern ment employees. We demand a natloual currency, safe, sound and flexible. Issued by the general government only, a full legal tender for all dehta. publlo and private, and that without the use of bank ing corporations, a just, equitable aad efficient means of distribution, direct to the people, at a tax not to exceed S per cent, per annum, to be provided, aa set fort'a tn the subtreasory plan of tbe Farmers' Alliance, or some better system: also by payment In discharge of its obligations for publlo Improvements. We demand the free and unlimited oolnage of silver and gold at the present legal ratio of IStoL We demand that the amount of the drculat tng medium betpeetlily Increased to not less than fifty dollars per capita. We demand a graduated Income tax. We believe that the mousy of the oountry should be kept as much as possible in the hands of the people, and hence we demand that all national and state revenues shall be limited to the necessary expenses, economically aad honestly administered. We demand that postal savings hanks be es tablished by the government for the safe de posit of tbe earnlnga of tbe people ana to facili tate exchange. Transportation being a means of exchange aad a nubllo necessity, tbe government should own aad operate the railroads tn the Interest of the people. The telegram and telephone.
