He says he was generally told that no speech over delivered in Washington erented so much applause as The applause was so exces- she thnt it continued for live minutes in ninkinp it impossible for him to proceed nnd i' was difh'eult for the enthusiasm of the younger part of the nndienec to be re- pressed even then stifiieienlly for him lo go on. He is confident that for ev- ery minute he spoke Ihern was nl least two minutes of npplnnse. It wns n very gratifying indeed. One of the -.pec'inl grounds of com- plaint ninde by the Democratic sup- porters of Mr. Greeley against lit publican party is they style lo-tt the ennt-led for the suppression of the Kti- Klux outrages at the Smith. Yet il is matter of record that no one urged that legislntion more vigorously th.in Mr. Greeley himself ihroiich the col- umns of his Tribuitc.

The first thing I BIIW was a young girl wilh dnrk eyes nncl brown hnir that rippled itself .inlo n tangle of rough curls whenever she took off her net. She was not very pretly nor HO very but there was n pi- qnani charm nbout her that attracted half the passengers before the first day was over.

She won her way into my heart by ihc kindly thought llint led her lo bring little relishes from tho table to tempt my sickly nnd to soothe my forehead with and gentle touches of her shapely brown where a great emcr.ild en- circled by diamonds. Very soon she got in the hnbit of drnwing her nig be- nidc my and on the deck leaning against so thai I might ns she said.

The New Zealander looked after tried to console himself by draw- ing his wrap in another fold across his did not and final- ly got up and went away. Of course it wns not worth his while to make himself agreeable to a middle-aged womnn in hood and water-proof. So I sat and looked at tho likeness of a lake among the sunset and tried to decide whether I should take oatmeal gruel or for my wondering the nncon- about the old chord in my memory Ihnt wns always being struck hy n certain musical ring in the New Zealnnder's voice. After an hour or so tho gun was and presently Miss Armour came with the disorder of the strong Ren-wind in her and its freshness in her pretty pink cheeks. cnme as I she mur- dropping at my feet smiling as though she had got where she best love to such a smile as she would have given to the stokers down in tho or to the ship's cat. But it wns lovely to look upon while it lasted and we middle-aged people have learned to worm ourselves in any chance ray of stopping to consid- er whether it is likely to be perpetual. This time the bit of sunshine did not stay for there came up nn artist with his sketch-book nnd when Miss Armour had sufficiently admired his graphic penoilings of the captain and tho and the sea- sick occupants of an upper it wns time to throw the dog and so he bore her to find out by her own eyes whether we were actually going at tho rate of thirteen or only twelve nnd a-half. That wns how the days went. The passengers read and paced the played games and guessed and were always hungry the pilot stood steady and firm at the the sailors ran up and down the rig- ging like overgrown and were forever scouring and tying and drawing up and letting down. nt we had come safely almost to our desired With fair we wore only one day out from fond as we had grown to be of each we were getting impatient to part. Miss during all the voy- had kept on ns she beguil- ing every one with her trick of lip and eye. They ran after her like boys at the of a kite. they had nolhing better to do just then and when she had faded out ns n rainbow I made no doubt she would be as easily forgotten or only remember ed as a midsummer's by unless it might be a solitary warm hearted man like the New Zealander. To tell the I was a little sorry for him. life had not brought him all it and he was hungry for the love and confidence ibnl hnd never been his. So I was afraid he would miss this litlle sparkle of girlhood and warm and find the void deeper when it had gone out To the very last Rosa kept her place by my and to the very Inst the New Zealander his place by when no one younger had stepped in to carry her which was pretty to be sure. he al- ways went quietly awny wilh a kind of grave regret in his face. Or this 'last Miss Armour hac just left along with a yonng law lo drop oranges and lemons among the steerage when I noticed the New Zealander looking nfler her with a sadder regre than a hii eyes.. He had such handsome darl eyes I could see thnt without m glasses. said I to I hope he isn't coin8 to get sensible agreeable man like him old enough to be her father And so I looked at him to see il he was when suddenly he turned npon me. least yon might have written Agatha Wells said he sharply.
