EXCURSIONS A movement is being inaugurated and now taking definite shape in Pitts burg which promises to be fruitful of great result not only to the city of Pittsbuig as a trading center but to the country merchants in the territory con tiguous The movement is being di rected by the chamber of commerce and is called the Pittsburg Trade Ex tension It provides a series of shopping excursions from the towns and villages within trading distance of Pittsburg beginning Sep tember 27 and continuing for ten or tvelve days following to enable the country merchants to go to Pittsburg and do their fall shopping Excursion rates will be granted by tbe railroacs centering at Pittsburg circular letters will be sent out and reception and entertainment will be provided for all who avail themselves of the urgent invitation from the wholesale dealers of Pittsburg generously extended to them through the Chamber of Com merce In New York Cleveland and doubt less many other cities similar move ments are on foot and are proving of mutual advantage to both buyer and seler A somewhat similar enterprise was attempted in this city some years ago but for want of unity of action on the part of our merchants and proper ad vertising it did not prove the success that was intended There is a wide sweep of territory dotted with handsome villages of which Masstll m is the social and business center and all reasonable efforts should be put forth to receive and retain this trade for our city There may be a better way than a series of shopping excursions it does not present itself to us ITS THEIR WAY A Man

surrender no craving ior pity no display of despair It is like the calm dazzling play of the waves warmed by the morning sun aft er a night of storm and disaster There is no sign of the wreck the tide

cheek but they blurred tha vision for all that as she choked them back on heart Around her was every evidence of wealth The house ris ing in the background n grand old pile of gray stone worthy the name of castle the grounds surrounding it kept in ex quisite order giving every sigii of culti vation and taste her own dress rich and cosily yet the tears so nearly shed were caused by the bitterness of dependence It wais her uncles house she shared the privileges which by right belonged solely to her cousin her beautiful cous iii and beautiful the idol of her father e man stern and grave save to the daughter whose smile melt ed the chilliest frost in which he en wrapped himself Years before Bell too had known a fathers love but that Archer Fielding had ever been own brother to this man of iron seemed impossible Her earliest recollections were of a bright genial nature eyes and lips formed only for laughter forbidding concealment and distrust a heart always ready to listen to her childish wants ever open to en fold and protect her then silence and mystery His name was never men tioned now in her uncles home She had been taught to think him dead though sometimes rose a great hope in her soul that somewhere on this wide earth he might yet live and the day would come when she might find him She could complain of no unkinclness I will go she said aloud i cannot bear it lam young strong I can work or if needs be thing rather than accept or a whole by stern du ty without one sweetmorsel of Soliloquizing Miss Bell interrupt ed a voice and the girl turned her face flushing1 then paling ms theyoungman who had thus addressed her approached and drew her arm within his For a mo ment she let it rest there as though it were pleasant to her then made a mo tion to withdraw it but he laid a de taining grasp on the small white fin gers as he questioned Why will you not accept my escort Is your own so ciety so far preferable My cousin is expecting you I be lieve Mr Armstrong at the house May floes not brook Indeed Nor do I therefore since I was seeking jou allow me at least a brief reward I was not aware Miss Fielding had any claim upon my time at least notMdssMay Fielding Agmii his listeners face flushed as she made a half impatient movement of dissent he went on with sudden im petuous manner is it possible you do not know the abaran which has drawn mehere HaveyounotlongBgo story of my love for jou It is true I have been polite to your cousin although my attentions have hardly been so marked as to admit of miscon struction Think you we care for the snowcapped mountains when at our very feet lies the valley of plenty Through her I have gained speech with you Surely such subterfuge is in no way to be despised I have seen your proud spirit suffer have known some thing of its pangs Darling Avill you not end them Wrill you not accept the home I offer you as fair a one as that you leave where you shall reign its honored mistress queen of all even my heart Was she dreaming Was it indeed love lor Loring Armstrong she so long had held within such irrepressible bar riers that now at his words leaped in such mad strong currents through every pulse She so long had looked upon him as Mays lover she so well knew his declaration had been expected by her which would gratify for her father every desire of his parental am bition so fully realized their baffled dis appointment when they discovered it was she whom he her brain whirled but those last words she whom he gave her strength What could she not bear for such a price Had Loring Armstrong been penniless she still could have gladly gone forth to the endsof the world and now now she could only raise happy tearbedimmed eyes to his and sob out her newfound joy on the unexpected shelter of his heart But May What will she say she questioned at last Darling do you think because I have been so happy as to win you every one must envy you the prize I doubtif Miss May has a heaft save when it beats triumphantly as she looks at the reflec tion of her own beautiful face in her mirror But come little trembler We will go and announce our daWningbliss and put your foolish fears to So saying he threw his arms once more about the slender form and drew her toward The house On the broad piazza impatiently opening and closing the fan she held within her jeweled hand the beautiful heiress pat awaiting their approach or rather the approach of one alone for she raised her penciled eyebrows with hisughty inquiry accompanied by n dis dainful shrug of the graceful shoulders when she saw who was his companion but as they drew n rarer and slio noited the action of acknowledged protection n pallor overspread ihe brnuti fill face and one drop of blood rosud on the crimson lip wlurr lirr small while had its rrnrl impress have come to your congraHu May although I luive ns sured your cousin how sincere 1 know 11103will bo your father within No 1 believe not and witkout content of ones guaixJiau congratula tions i infer are premature However you may rest assured of mine if you them of luc itoue iu which she spoke gave no betrayal of the conflict she endured and at the words JLtell started forward How kind of you dear cousin to share luy but a something unnoticed by the mail warned her to suy uo draw back chilled she could scarce tdl why and send the mo mentary impulse of affection backtoits fountainhead A shadow of undefined dread crept over her not even her lov ers kiss with his promise to return early in themorning that the important interview might be accomplished could dissipate a shadow which took visible form as on the following day she was jiuiumoued from the breakfast room to her uncles study aud met her cousin just leaving it with an expression oi triumphant assurance she was unable to conceal With unusual urbanity after careful ly closing the door Mr Fielding mo tioned her to a seat I he began clearing his throat that Mr Armstrong has asked you to become his wife This both amazes and pains me Amazed because you certain ly must have conducted your courtship with unbecoming secrecy and pained because it forces me into disclosures which will make this marriage an im The shadow had fallen now She felt it suffocating her but she awaited the rest in silence Had your hand been sought by one whose name was of less lustre and whose birth station and immense wealth forced him to less necessarily maintain it I might have kept silent Now I cannot consistently do so there fore I must tell you your father is not dead as you aave supposed but still lives a fugitive from justice Lives My father Thank God From her white lips broke the exclama tion of gratitude unheeding the barrier which had forbidden all these years his acknowledging himself to his child I will not here speak of the character oi his offense save thatthe clemency of one man saved him from he continued restlessly pacing the floor as though even his hard nature shrank from his selfappointed task His eyes were glancing over at the white suffer ingface of the girlhe was stabbing with each word it only remains for me to apprise Mr Armstrong of these facts to induce him at once to renounce your hand of his own accord or in mercy to your pride inform him you repented a too hasty decision and wish to be free Which course will you choose Sir your blood is in my veins The question is therefore scarcely neces sary 1 shall never see Loring Arm strong again Word it as you will only if it be true that my father lives I would share his exile aye if needs be his disgrace Write him itis my wish and gain quickly his No letter could reach him As soon as possible I will let him know of your Slowly Bell rose and left the room wondering if years had not elapsed since last she had catered it A dull wonder took possession of her in the weeks that followed as to why her lover EO calmly had accepted her sudden re jection of his suit She did not know a faint hope had tempered the first force of the blow the hope that he would break down any barrier leap any ob stacle which might prevent his claim ing her for his own But since the few brief hours they had spent together when he had won her promise he had vanished Not even Mays wiles coulft draw him to her side since he had dis appeared from their midst So sit ting alone and weary she was startled one evening as the first snow lay upon the ground by the entrance of a stran ger Gray hairs mingled with the brown but as he stood silent one mo ment before her a thrill of expectation gave her a premonition of the future and when he opened his arms with the talismanic words My she sprang to their embrace Bnt as he re leased her another stood waiting as Loring Armstrong said Have I won my reward Bell Glancing for one moment into the noble features of the parent siie had lost so long and failing to read one sign which should proclaim him capable of wrong she could no longer hesitate as with rapturous bliss she felt herself Mice more enfolded in her lovers arms Nav did he let her go when her uncle was summoned to their presence so changed so white so fearstricken that she could but feel a thrill of pity at her heart a pity which made her piead his cause when the sad truth was unfolded the truth that to save him her own father had assumed his crime the forgery of a note True to a promise marie to his mother on her deathbed to protect a younger brother he had gone forth a wanderer leaving home and his the guilty one Loring Armstrong insisting upon the issue had been reluctantly told and he it was who determined to win the girl he loved at any cost had sought and found the father who had sacrificed so much and from whose lips sealed so long he wrung at last the truth Yon have a confessed the wretched man when all had been told restored to your arms Hemember I did this for mine and forgive So it was the heiress after nil Loring Armstrong had won for his bride and on the eve of Bells wedding clay May Fieldings body was discovered boantifnl and white and cold in death and her uncle Irft his home a wretched wanderer unwilling to accept the free foricrivenoss offered him hor
