expected his action of the sugar plant
ers will give the republicans tlnee con-,
gressmen from the state. The demo
crats will then be relieved of tbe charge
of legislating in the interests of the
solid South, and especially the Loul
ttiia sugar plautere, aud therefore ought
to be able to gain more than enough
congressmen from other quarters to
offset their loss in Louisiana. But tbe
sugar plituters will never get back their
bounty. The McKInley law is re
pealed, iind nothing like it can lie re
enacted for three years, at least, and by
that time the question of sugar boun
ties will have beeu so thoroughly ven
tilated that the scheme will have no
following outside the two or three sugar-producing
states. The campaign
of education on the sugar bounty has
been inaugurated by the beneficieries,
but it may not end to their satisfaction.
Eastern Oregon farmers cau not afford
to raise wheat for 27 cents a bushel, and

' (Concluded from last week.(
All this while she pleasantly . wel
comed him back to America, and asked
him in. His honest' face, which had
aged more than was natural in a year
and a half, betrayed the disappoint
ment he felt when Mrs. Loring, and
not Tilda, opened the door.
"Ees Tilda gone out?'? he asked.,
"Yes," she answered; "that is" (long
ing to gain a little time), "she left me
over a month ago." Here she paused,
and the pity that was In her heart
crept into her face, and Nicholas per
ceived it. 1
"Ees anyting com at hare?" he asked,
in an awe-struck tone. "Ees she died?"
"No, my poor fellow," answered Mrs.
Loring, laying her delicate white hand
kindly on his big red one. "Sit down
a minute, arid try to be brave and
strong, for I have something very hard
to tell you.'!
. Nicholas obeyed, his weather-beaten
cheeks blanching under the brown,and
his honest blue eyes holding so much
wondering distress" in them that Mrs.
Loring's task became indeed hard.
"It is better to know the worst than
to wait,", she said. "Tilda has been
very cruel and untruthful to you, and
she is married to an" A heavy groan
arrested her words. She had spoken
with averted eyes, shrinking from gaz
ing upon the pain she was giving.
Now she saw that he had sun k forward
in a limp heap, head and shoulders
burled in his arms upon the table. Per
fect silence followed the groan, and
Mrs. Loring respected It; but as min
utes past, and he neither moved nor
made a sound, she spoke to him. Re
ceiving no answer, she touched his
shoulder; he did not move. Then she
knew the big man had fainted. There
was icewater in the dining-room, and
quickly getting a glass, she turned bis
head so as to bring the face outward,
and dashed a little in it. The effect
was immediate. He opened his eyes
and lifted his head. For a moment he
was quite dazed; then all came back to
him, and he staggered to his feet. '
"I will ko." he said, heavily, half
feeling, half looking about him for his
hat. ' - : ' 'V'-1" ;
"No, indeed, my poor fellow!" ex
claimed Mrs. Lorinsr; "not yet. You
must let me warm you some tea before
you go out. I am afraid you are not
well." And she motioned him to sit
down. Then he saw the splash of
water on the table and the front of her
dress (for she had spilled it in running),
and putting his hand to his eMrt collar,
felt it there. He thought an instant,
and the meaning came to him.
"I hev mek trooble," he said, hum
bly; "I- hev trayvel so far, an' I hev
sometime not eat mush, an' mar heart
dey's gone;" and his voice broke.
Mrs. Loring was putting the tea on
the stove as he spoke. After stirring
the Are she sat down by him. "I am
so sorry for you!" she said, earnestly.
"I wish I could help you bear your
trouble, but I am afraid nobody can;
but Tilda has been wicked and fickle,
and you must try to forget her."
; Nicholas winced; he could not hear
the rosy little woman that had so long
been . dear to him harshly spoken of
even now. "Ef you please, Meesis
Lo'lng, mebbe some mar letters been
los'. Mebbe see tink I forgat hare, de
vway so lots odder mans does." ,
, Mrs. Loring thought indignation
would be a good tonic, and replied:
"No; she received every one of your let
tersone every two weeks till she was
married; and since, for what I know.
But she said she couldn't wait for a
man that loved his father and mother
more than her.""
The diversion was partly successful,
"Ah, mar poor old , moder!" he ex
claimed, the blood mounting to his
face. : "I'm breeng bare, fom all whut
de tings see know, an' fom uvry tings
see love, for Tilda. An' ve leev mar
fader-in deys grave fen deys Likkista
flowers is not dead, for Tilda! Ah, see
never love me!" , -
"No," said Mrs. Loring, "I'm afraid
she never knew what true love was.
And your father is dead? ' Tell me
; "Tank you," he said. "Dey's one
monfc' sence he die. He been seek uver
sence fen dat time dey sen' for me.
Dey's par'l'sis he hev. He kenenty
valk,;he kenenty do noting wid hees
bands, he kenenty eat heself, an' all
whut tings he knows ees fen he's hun
gry ; an' he's beeg as me, an' mar moder
kenenty leeft em, so I got to stay.! Den
dat bank fare I hev all money whut I
hev save, dey break, an' I got no money;
an' I kenenty work mush fen my fader
seek, and fen he die we hev debt and
trooble togedder. Ve hev asmall lands,
an' I tale mar moder ve sell uvryting
an' com to Amer'ca. " See cry an' cry;
but I tale see I hev promise, un' I love
Tilda, an' see hev vwated longer time,
so mar moder com.. Fen ve hev sell all
an' pay de debts, ve heventy mush, an'
fen ve got teekets on de steamer an' de
cars, ve got so leetle lef dat all de yay
comin' ve kenenty eat mush so I am
a schild yust now."
"You are a man every Inch and a
good man!" exclaimed Mrs. Loring,
with her eyes full of tears; "and a girl
like Tilda don't deserve you. Tell me
where your good bid mother is, and I
Swedish for coflin, ,
will go to see her tomorrDW. You are
sober and industrious, and' you will
soon have plenty of work, and till you
get it you must let us help you. You
can pay back every cent we lend you
with interest, if you want to," she
added. "And now drink some tea and
eat something." . As she spoke she set
the tea and some bread and butter and
meat on the table; then, with an "I'll
be back directly," she disappeared, and
busied herself in the store-room arrang
ing a package of tea aud sugar and
other little things that would be ap
preciated by an old woman. When
she thought he had had time to finish
his supper she returned. "Take these
to your mother," she said. . "An old
person needs little things that younger
people can get along without, and it's
too late now to get anything; the stores
will all be shut."
As fine an instinct as Mrs. Loring's
own helped Nicholas to accept the gift
and. the kindly ruse together, saying,
simply, as he rose to go: "Dey's vay
kind, Meesis lo'lng; see tank you vay
mush, an' I tank you for all whut de
tings you do for me. I got not so much
trooble fen I got you kindness."
The next day Mrs. Loring fulfilled
her promise of calling upon old Mrs.
Jansen, and indeed kept them both
upon her mind until Nicholas found
steady work, and they were comfort
ably settled. Indeed, she never quite
lost sight of hem. until they left the
city to live elsewhere, five years later;
for the old lady would come every
month or two to pay her respects, and
was employed by Mrs; Loring to knit
mittens, etc., for the children, and
sometimes on 6unday she met the pair
on their way to church, or walking in
the afternoon, Nicholas always with
his old mother on his arm. Never
once did she see a younger woman
But she did not see Tilda for over
three years from the day she left her,
and supposed she had left the city,
more especially as her husband had
some thought of doing so when they
were married. But one morning, at
the end of that time, she was told there
was a woman In the kitchen who want
ed to see her. The woman was wretch
edly clad, thin, haggard and scared
looking. Could she be? yes, she was
Tilda. . ' '
Mrs. Loring was shocked. "Come
into the dining room"," she said. "I
must see you 'alone.. I fear you are in
great trouble." : ' : ! .
Poor Tilda! Mrs. Loring's kind,
familiar voice quite broke her down,
and '; she could do nothing but sit and
sob. It was evident, as she tottered
from the kitchen, that her strength
was nearly spent, so Mrs. Loring did
not try to make her talk until she had
brought her a little tea. Then her
story came out the old one which so
many of us have heard: a husband
given more and more to the vice of
drinking, and her life one of neglect,
cruel treatment, and want. She had
already borne three ; children, the
youngest of whom was not yet two
weeks old, and was huddled under her
shawl, and all of them were starving.
Mrs. Loring, as usual, was equal to
the emergency. She telephoned for a
hack, and while it was coming, hastily
prepared a bundle of immediate neces
sities, and was soon with Tilda in the
wretched place she called home, where
she saw the poor creature back into her
bed, and paid a neighbor to see to her
and the children till she should be
stronger; but the exposure had been too
great, and she died the next week. On
one of the last days in which she had
intervals of consciousness she beckoned
Mrs. Loring, who had come to see how
she was, to the bed. "Nicholas come
back In America," she said.
Mrs. Loring nodded assent. "Yes; I
see him oftenr Tilda." " '
"I hev see em on a street, free year
'go," Tilda continued, Speaking with
difficulty; "em say noting, but em look,
so Itink God lookin' at me!" 'v'--;'
She had not spoken so much before
for many hours, and her voice died
weakly away. Mrs. Loring thought
she was about to lapse again into un
consciousness, but watching a second
she noticed a voiceless motion of the
lips and an anxious look in the eyes,
that showed she was trying to hold her
wandering mind till strength should
come to speak again. , . .
"Would you like to say something to
him, Tilda?" she asked, gently. .
,. A look of relief came to the poor
pinched face. 'JTal em," she began,
faintly "talem ask em " Her mind
was slipping from her, and she seemed
to clutch for it until she should have
finished; bnt her thoughts would no
longer shape themselves in English, or
remember a mediating third party.
"O Kara van! forlat mig, for jag bar
handlat ilia, Gud har straff at mig
och, forlat forlat mig," she whispered,
hoarsely. The last words died in an
almost inarticulate murmur, and she
passed again into an unconscious state,
from which she did not again rally.
O dear friend) Forgive me. for I have
done wrong, God haa punished me. For
give forgive nie!

Directions for Mixing the Acme Compound.
Weigh out ten pounds of the Compound and put it in a barrel or larjre ket
tle; then pour on five gallons of boiling water gradually, until the mixture is of
the consistency of soft soap stirring it all the time. After it is thoroughly
dissolved add the balance of the water (forty-five gallons), hot or cold hot pre
ferred. Do not boil the mixture. It Is then ready to apply. B Be surw and
have your kettles or barrel clean (also your spraying tank) and free from other
mixtures, in order to avoid clogging your spraying nozzles.' Do not spray when
the trees are moist.' For Codlin Moth use No. 2, and spray immediately after
the blossoms drop, then again four weeks after, which will destroy all other in
sects that may appear. Apply by means of a spray pump or a florist's syring.
Coralitos, Cal., March 26, 1894. Watson, Erwin & Co.: I used one hundred
pounds of your Acme No. 1, and it bad the desired effect; it not only gets away 1
with tbe insect but it cleans up the tree and leaves it in a bealty condition. - I

Niles, March 14, 1894. I have had six years' experience spraying, and used
various washes to quite an extent. For the last two seasons I have used Acm
Insecticide, and find It tbe best wash, and that it gives tbe best results of any
I ever used. It is a very pleasant wash to use, and easily prepared.
