In the midst of a pleasant conversation with hi8_ hoatess, Harold ArJeigh abruptly paused, a sudden àusli on his fine face, a strange, startled look In his handjsome darkeys.  What he had been about to say he never knew; of his ungraciousness he was not conscious until he saw Mw. Goldsby's glance of podtely-surpriaed inquiry.  Pardon me," he said, turning toward her with a winning and apologetic smile ; " I saw a lady among your guests . iust now so like a dear friend I knew and lost long ago, that the i^emblance quite excited me«*' ^  Ah, you mean the young lady iïi white silk and opal ornaments, wiC curly yellow hair and cùeeks like peach blossoms.

I have made myself worthy to aak you to be my wife. Give me one word, Ermengarde—one word to send me from you again or to keep me by your sideior the remainder of our lives."  Her stony calmness was all gone now. She trembled perceptibly and arose be-for«» him pale as death.  Her lips moved witü a little gasp but what she meant to say she did not utter, for at that moment a gentlemen came to her side and with a tirord of apology to Harold claimed her for the next dance.  And just then hiß hostess touched his arm with her fan.  My husWd iG(^asking for you. Mi-. Arleigh," she said, adding lightly: Did you not find my d^ Ermengarde charmingP She is a lovely creature. Just the least bit of a coquette, perhaps. I beHeve she is engaged to the gentleman who is dancing with her."  Harold Arleigh despised gossip and ^l^rd^ all ruiiOTB as ilnreliable, but in " pi^^Qt JbOod of suspense the words grtevcd him as^e jare^  bitt^lM^entnith could do^ / i  Ermragarde had pledged herself to another, and this was the end of his  « 8hè htóiiàry'fàtóiid,« ¡¿id Arleigh' as he bent over her, "There is^M cause for alarm.

"One would think they were lovers ¡ who had quarreled," was her mental criticism.  She Was not wrong, for years before those'two had loved each other dearly. They had been betrothed, and the marriage day fixed, when the trial <¡ame that parted them. Harold Arleigh suddenly found himself fatherless and utterly penniless; but idleness and luxury had not spoiled his high and noble spirit. He could cheerfully accept yéarsof toil and study and struggling, but he felt that He could not happily and conscientiopsly wed his wealthy Ermengarde until he might regmn his wordly equality with her. FwííTld  poor men who marry rich women, had told her.  Why «honld^é care for what the world has said'or may say," the girl had returned, impatiently. " All I have belongs^to you, Harold.

U Utt, 'y  they were quite alone she spoke kindly and gently of the evening they met.  Yoa asked me a question that night," she said, with quiet dignity and a delicate reluctance of manner ; "it waa scarcely my fault that it was not answered then.*'  " I know what you would have said, Miss Burroughs^" he returned, gravely; "I am sorry for having so startlfed and offended you.^ I was wrong and inconsiderate, and i can only acknowledge imy fault and ask pardon for it."  She regarded him for one instant with shy wonder, and ,then turned away haughtily, her fair face scarlet, and an unmistakable expression of scorn and resentment in her blue beautiful eyes.  "I fear I am hopelessly stupid,V re^ sumed Arleigh, fjtn (pained, perplex^ tones. "I am sure 1 have displeased  1, ErmengardCi will you never understand that I would not willingly give you one moment of disquiet?"  Even in that trying moment, with her dear hwds clinging upon his arm, her plca^Kng eyes upon him, he never wavered.  " I must, my darlings" he had answered her, firmly, though his heart was heavy with iegret and pain. " And remember, though I leave you freej I shall remain loyal to you in heart and deed as the only woman I can ever make my wife. I am not selfish enough to ask you to wiut for me a few years, my Ermengarde."  What the girl replied she could never distinctly reinember, but she knew her words w^e oruelly reproachful, for .she was half mad with the agony of losing him for even a few brief years.  And he left her with a look on his white, beloved face she would never forged until her dying day.  She felt that he had wronged her generous affection, insulted her womanly pride, sjidleft her with pitiless indiffer ence to be sOom^d and mocked as a bride deserted by her bridegroona. She had heard -of^ aweethearts _whqjh^ Wait^ for lovers who never came; of women who had wasted the best years of thehr lives upon loves that wera C^e; and her whole soul cried outihbitt«r, nnfor|^ying anger agaiyt him. Neither  at aU," she answered, as she left him.  '<She denies me even her friendship," lie thought;.sorrowfully.  after she had gone he  'What were you säyrng. HaroldF« she asked, faintly, regarding him with* wondering looki  "That it is agony to give you tip to another, my darling," he r^'oiiied.  Her pain and fright Were -«U gone now. She arose b^ore nim proudly, her pale cheeks growing rosy.  "Harold," she said, gravely, "if I am not your wife, I shall never .be the wife of another. You have wronged my love and fidelity if you have ever thought differently." The spell of the sweet old love droun  war^upon them t there was^noiieWtjlor^ explanations« for heaxi spoke ^ heart ahdSftoK understood «»other ( alfanger was forgiven and all mistakes forgotten.  " I suppose only for my stupid accident we. should never have been reconciled," smiled Ermengarde, by-«nd-bve; "aiid I should have been as angry with you all my life as I had been for years."—  " Those y«ars of our lost happmess have not been lived in vain," he answer» ed, 8eriouslyr"our love is tried and true^ and your husband will be your honor and supporter instead of a pensioner oh your bounty."  v Lovely, happy Ermengarde was in clined to contest the. practical part of her lover's argument, but thinking of his peat, manly love .80 " tried and teue," she, with trtie womanly sentiment, began to believe in his wisdom.  "After all," she confessed to Mrs. Goldsby; "I think I should despise a huaband who would be wliat my dear HaroR would have been if I in my silly Tondje^ iJould. have; made him so.

In 1893 the Rlféian; government proposed to the S^f®^^®®«®^ ^^^ »rft^tt that à  fHendly consultation should be had for i«tting the rights o^thc three countries tofpossettions on the Pacifio coast.

Then hot water is let on, and th TOgB of the government coffee mill rend the tens, hundreds and toousand  continents, by the frèe and independent cotóitiòn which toey ha,ve assumed and matntahi, are henceforth not to be considered as sulyeots for future colonia», tion by anyEuropeim powers."  In the same message, he said that the United {States should declare that it wòuJd eoi^slder any attempt, on the part of Buropesn powers» to extend their system to imy part of tois hemisphere, as dangerous to our peace and safety. ; These twO déclarations form what is kno^ aa toe Monro^ doctrine. In shoi^ they asseftwthi^t there u^ust he no mterierefiée-by^tói^iL^bropean pò with anj^ government of Îïorth or Sbuto AmeriOa. Such powers must not be permitted to establish colonies in America, or to introduce the forms of monatbhy, or to Mstinie any control over toe government» of toe American conttaents.

An advance of at least twenty per cent.on these figutó is expected for 1880. The^ Quaker city manufactures more textile librie^ than  any other city in the world,and furnishes nine-tenths of all the products of tois industry used in toe United States.  A boy near Smith's Falls, Ont*, was engaged as cook for a niimber of men. One evening he went to a neighbor's, and on returhing ifound the dark. He struck a match, but it was ^lown out.

A law of Maine declares that imy persons sustaining injuries , in that State :HhaU notb^entitled-to-damagfsif'they--are residents of a couh^ where a similar remedy does not exist. A Cuban lady having been injured by a defecUve highway brought suit. The supreme court decided that 'she was entitled to dam^, for the statute was uncbnstilu. tional, being in violation of the four-  of the United States, which declares thM no State sh^ll " deny to any person within its juris^ctioh the equal protec-tioniofthelaw." . .  ballot in that country Has increased the number of polling places, polling <Aerks, and the like, and likewise toe outlay of the candidate. Sharp rivalry raisra the cost of such items far beyond what they would be if provided for from a common fund. Occasionally expenses aw partially defrayed by party organizations, though they generally form toó serious a charge for ;any except rich men to bear. Those of a candidate contesting a county usually amount to several thousands of pounds, and aliew Tork paper asserts toat the laws against bribery and corruption are' almost always audaciously violated and with absolute impimity. At a late election in Norto Durham four candidates spent $140,-000; in Soutoeast Lancashire four candidates spent $70,000; in Souto Durham three candidates spent $63^000, and  dollar notw7tô^îomsr~Tou may loot through a little window in,the top of the hopj>er wd see this process of liquidation going on. The engineer scooped up a handful of the ground up currency from a mass and put it n^ my nose and eyes for inspection. It is a nasty muck. Yet, since it has been money, one gazes at it with grief, curiosity and even respect. The Washington people get hold of this financial filth developed from ra^, vhich after a circulation of years in greasy pockets and pocket-books, passing from dirty hands to dirtier, from den to dive, from disease infected clothing, hospitals and de^ "men's clothes, until it returns to its birthplace, whense once it started so crispé and clean, laden with every variety of infec-  sons of the ss tracted to the isthmus for various purposes of trade and thus a colony would be planted there. As a natural and almost inevitable result, France would clum toe right to expend its protection over its own citiz^ns<- and that would almOat certainly be followed t asthe next  Coicmbia.

" Just the evening for a cosy chat before a comfortable fire," observed Mrs. Goldsby, coming in, and after ringing for lights, drawing the heavy curtahis wito a little shiver. " I toought Ermengarde was with you, Harold —you are not going? Mr. Goldsby wished to show you those curious tlimgs sent him to-day. The dear fellow has a passion for odd and antique relics, and his study is quite an interesting museum, I assure you. Allan, do bring Miss Burroughs," concluded toe vivacious little lady.

Lawyers' Bonanzas.  The casual mention of a lawyer and a will reminds me of a scene in the surro-. gate's court, wiites a New York correspondent. The will of a well-known society woman who died a year ago,leaving a large estate, was up for contest, and when it was called not less than twenty lawyers rushed forward to respond. They all represented clients interested in the will, and each wanted his particular interest to get a fair show. Tbe surrogate seemed rather scared for a moment by toe charge of the law bri-g^e, but soon nerved himself to meet it and then told the lawyers that the case would have to stand over six months; so they gathered ttp^heir papers and went off in search of otoer  Ibises  Hew to Make an Âudifan.  Civil Courts in MilHary Cues.  A novel suit has been on trial in Yankton, Dakota. William Stuart wm a private in tbe United States army, iU a conipany of which Oaptain Edgar C. Bowen was the «aam^der. Sti^ brought an action for assault and imprisonment for the surn'Of $10,000. The assault and imprisonment oOcurrM while Boweh's company was in pursuit of hostile Indians in the BlÄök Hüls the winter of 1877-78, in theifiidiitti countryi  by one military person in the perform-ancéjafdutyjapon another military per son.  The occurrence took place in the eye of the hiw in a time of war. The plaintiff waa mutinous. The artioles of war-compel  such conduct. The means usedli^im were usual and customary. The trial had really the appearance of a coUrt martial in a civil cour'.. It was an anomaly» no case of exactly the same tindctm heiound in the records of the civil courts of this country» nor ho express autoority can be found for the jurisdiction of toe civjl courts in the this, case, but all authorities point to the fact that there was no jurrsdicwon ox^ pressly granted to such courts.  The court decided toey had no jurisf dictiou. The articles ol war declare« an officer of any rank must suppress In-sutiordination, etc., but does not state how It shall be done. , The discretion the of&QSL and t&é ciùtoms of toe se^lce are his only guides. The jury *gndatedjL.Ter4ict for jefendant.  A cirrespondent of a New York paper wStes: I have experimented con-siderajjlyto ascertain the cheapest as well ks the best method of hearing toroujh toe teeto- I am partially deaf myse^and naturally sympathetic with those |o afflicted, especially with those who unable to purchase the high-price^udiphones.  For^e small cost of ten cents what I call aiaudifan can be made which will give aj good satisfaction as any audi-phon^et invented.

Edison can spare from his electric light he devotes to the perfecting of his plan for obtaining gold Out of the ore ahready used and cast away by miners. The latter product is known as tailhigs. Both miners and assayers know thaf there is a certidn amount of toe precious metal left in these taiiirigs when cast "off, but a process by Which the metal may be profitably secured, Mr. Edison says, has until now remained unknown. This process he claims to have invented. He has so well satisfied a number of mining engineers and capitalists that his claim is well foumied,-that - a company haa abeady b^^ orgapized to work over toe tailings cast off at toe furnaces of the great mints. It was learned that this company have contracted for and secured 50,000 tons of this product among the mining districts of Virginia City and Leadville.  The process by which Mr. Ediaonpi^ poses to obtain the^ld is as yet secret. It isjiaid, howeyer. that quick silver enters largely into the process, as do also* in a lesser degree, oxide of lead carbonate of soda, 'charcoal dust and powdered glass.-^yc««> York Bun.  During the past year it cost the Ca;na^ diaU government ovei $1,000,000 to |irof ^ide for the wants of its Indian popa? ^^tion. ^  According to the last statistic*« published by the French minister ot agriculture and commerce, the population of the repablic is 37,OW,000, of whom" 12,000,000 live in cities and the remain-, der in toe cotmtey^-Thete-areinFjraiice, S10,OOp individuals who have no special profession, 71,300 beggars and tramps, ,531,000 professional men, 3,837,000 persons engaged in navigation and com ^ men*, 9,274,000 tradesmen and Workmen, 2,151,000 bondholders, and 18, 000 persons engaged in &grleul|tural pursuits.
