Poor John it was a sad blow to him a he took to drink and went from Hack to worse till begot badly Hurt unloading n vessel one Day. He was taken to the Hospital and died there. You see Liat in be come to in order get a living. I often think it would have been different if our Lily had a a you think she is dead then a std Lilian. A a Oil yes or we would have Beard something of her before now. Had she lived and grown up she would have been the very linage of Yon Only she would have been much plainer dressed Aud without the genteel air that you have. A she would have been n Beauty just like you in Lilian blushed at the woman a homely compliment she know it was honest and outspoken and such words arc not unpleasant to Bear. A a Tell me your name a continued the woman earnestly. A Lilian Waldron a answered the girl readily.

A a very Well then go straight Down the Street till you come to the water and then any one Oak Point out the ferry to i ulan thanked her and then committed herself once Inore to the limn a tide. As she came la View of the water and was looking about for the ferry a Man in the garb of n Sailor suddenly accost cd her. A a Why hollow Nance to he cried extending his huge hand in a very Friendly manner. A a How Are you ? give us your hand a "8lr�?� cried Lilian. In bewilder neut a i done to know you nor is my name Quot no by Jingo in he returned Evl by astonished himself Quot you can t be her for she must he forty by this time and you Are not Twenty. 1 was forgetting How time has slip Ted a any hut you Are the very image of what she was when she married John Lurke. Quot that was the worst Cut i Ever had it drove me to sea and u wandering life. Why in be been round the world in these last ten years. Of he continued with a sudden thought Quot you re her daughter the one that was Tost a Aud she found you again a Lilian Watts very much Ortw grassed by this persistent recollection of the uncouth stranger. Quot i do not know what you mean a Bic exclaimed hastily Quot i am not the person you take me for my name is Lilian Waldron my father is a broker on Wall Street we Uve at Green a Young get Tomas coming Down the Street observing the annoyance and alarm depicted upon her once approached her and said a a if i can be of any assistance to you Pray command the one shy glance that Lilian cast into the Frank Manly Fuce was enough to assure her of the character of its owner. A to a she cried. Quot of you would to to kind As to show me the Way to the Green Point a a with pleasure a returned the gentleman. Quot this Way if Yon he offered his Arm she accepted it with n glad sense of Protection and they passed on together. Thus began Lilian Waldron s acquaintance with Sidney Gray. We shall see what that no. Quoin sauce led to. Upon such trifles does a life s destiny turn. The Sailor touched his hat with a mumbled a beg Purdon miss. If i offended you a and watched them until they were out of sight talking to himself All the while. Quot a Queen reckoning lii a so his 11 rat words ran Quot first Day in port after a five years cruise. I was just thinking of Hunting up Nance seeing if they still lived when Lucioes my very bows comes this trim Cutter with Nance s figurehead just As she looked Twenty years ago. How i love-1 that Trouis i and she preferred that snip of a John Burke to me because he was honest Stie said and she was afraid i want but what a the Odds i Hail the most Money and that made things slide easy no matter How you come by ii. What did the Gnu say her in to was onh Llly Ynn Waldron lives at Green Point. Quot let me see�?1 remember something Odd that Luigj ened at Green Point going on fourteen years now. T remember what i found but led there on that gentleman a grounds. He Don t know it though thought 1 might turn it to account some Day i wonder who he was ? i Hail to Cut and run just then and could t Stop to and out. In be been intending to look it up for some time there May i Money in it. I be been gone so Long that there can to get anybody on the Lookout for me now. I will fix Upa bit and then take All this indistinctly to himself As he proceeded on his Way. Sidney Gray and Lilian Waldron were not Long la becoming the was As ingenuous and simple As a child of six. Instead of seventeen and Liat could he do but return her Confidence. There was a Charm la tills very simplicity that attracted him towards her for though hut Twenty two Gray from his position in life being the Only son of n wealthy merchant had seen much of the world s society. He to a student of Yale Home for the vocation. His residence was la Brooklyn. He not Only escorted Lilian to the Terri hut accompanied her on the boat and bore her com my to her very door leaving her there with u reluctance lie could not conquer. He declined to enter is he Hod promised to be Home at dinner to meet some rent lives hut n glance at the handsome mansion and grounds showed that Lilian a father possessed wealth and position. Promising to Call on the next Day and to introduced to or. Waldon he Tore himself away from those Blue eyes and sunny tresses. A a my times he confessed to himself As he strode buoy Antly Newny. A a ill Quarry Tomt girls if Shell Only have a Safe reservation but do you think he had doubt of it when or. Waldron come Home to dinner Lilian much As be dreaded his displeasure could not ref Nln from recounting her Day s adventure. The circumstance of the two strange recognitions had much perplexed her mind. The resemblance which had been Hocog a led by two persons so dissimilar puzzled her much. But if it had surprised her the Elbot of her narration upon her father was still Moro surprising he actually grew livid at her words. Never had she seen him in such no exalted state for he had Ever been grave sedate and gentle in his manner towards her. He reprimanded her almost fiercely for her indiscretion us he termed it. A a Why child a be exclaimed pus Slona Cly a a this act trifling of it May a it end to you might have caused my ruin a he paused abruptly con Cloua that his emotion had a nude him utter incautious words. A a How caused your ruin father a she naked terrified by his words which seemed to hint at some unknown and hidden danger. A How Enn that be possible a a a no in tier you Are too Young to comprehend a was the unsatisfactory reply. He was silent for a few Momenta and then suddenly begun to question her eagerly us it out the Apple womb a a Flint she said How she looked her dress her manner extracting every item that Lilian Ould give him la Way of information with the ardor Aud keenness of a Cross examining lawyer. Having gleaned that subject threadbare he commenced upon the Man in exactly the same manner until the poor girls mind was quite bewildered and she almost begun to fancy that tho Hod unconsciously committed some great crime. Quot i Cun understand us it out the woman Quot he said Musingly and unconsciously uttering his thoughts in an audible tone of Vole a a but the Man is beyond my Quot they Ore both beyond my comprehension a remarked Lullau a a but the fright they have occasioned me has taught sue u lesson and i shall never venture into new Yorka Multi without it proper escort i can assure this simple Assurance seemed to gratify or. Waldon greatly and the Cloud of care began to slowly fade from his face. A a Hughl my child Quot he cried pleasantly. was hut a stupid Ftp Lher. A poor woman who lost a child years ago ranches she traces a resemblance to her lost Darling in your face because my a slyly your eyes Anil Hilr Are same color. History Lias Many records of strange results therefrom. Do not let these circumstances bewilder your mind remember you Are my daughter Lilian Waldron that your Mother daughter of judge Farrell died when you were hut three a a who doubts it in tier a Lilian asked surprised it his earnestness. A a my child there Are people in the world who Are silly enough to doubt anything and everything even the existence of the supreme ruler of the there the conversation dropped and John Waldron never referred to the subject again with Bis daughter. The Day after this conversation a Man neatly dressed paused in front of the Waldron mansion and took a careful Survey of the premises. You would scarcely have recognized in this clean shaven and respectable looking person the Sailor who had so frightened Lilian the Day before. A Broad Grin flushed Bis Swarthy features As his glance followed the Fence Down to the Waters Edge. Quot the very place by Jingo a lie chuckled mud then indulged in a Low whistle of satisfaction. Quot i begin to understand the resemblance now but Why Why ? that a what beats me. Id like to Inq Nore into the Early history of or. John Waldron. There was a grocery store at the Corner be ramps the ii Iau Man have kept hero for years lets try to sauntered on leisurely to the Corner and went in. Ills keen Eye selected the proprietor it once a Little plump englishman. Our cosm polite detected the accent at once As he asked for a Good Cigar and tho grocery Man replied that he could sell him As Good a one of he could got in new York. The Sailor lit it Aud pulled Awny leisurely. A a a real Havana a he said. A a a you know a Good Cigar when you get one a cried the Shopman. A to in be smoked the real article la Havana itself a a a a i you Havo been there thought you Hod a kind of seafaring Quot you re an englishman. In be been there a a in a proud to say Iain. Can to disguise the fact you know though in be been Twenty years la this country naturalized and got my it was a warm Dull afternoon and the Shopman was disposed to be sociable. The Sailor leaning against the counter lazily smoking his Cigar commenced to extract tho information he sought. Quot kept this shop Long a a a about five the Sailor shifted from one leg to the other he began to fear As he would have expressed it that he was on the Quot wrong Quot a thought you a been Here some a a so i have a answered the other Quot but not in this shop. I kept one bearer the ferry thirteen years until i moved Quot know about every Loxly la the place he a the Sailor became quite absorbed la his Cigar for a few moments. Quot Nice place that above Here Beautiful House and Quot of yes you mean the Farrell estate a the Sailor took his Cigar out of his Mouth and knocked the White us lies Uli the end. Quot no who said Quot i done to menu that i Vienn where or. John Waldron a a Why bless you that is the Farrell Quot a indeed i Quot ejaculated the Sailor Aboe utly. A to yes. It belonged to old judge Farrell or. Waldron married his Only daughter and so came into the estate. That is to say it belongs to miss Lilian who inherited it from her Mother her father being her a a by a ingot cried the Sailor Quot in be got soundings a a he a asked the Shopman in Surprise. A a old i see How it is a he continued Quot you be heard something of this before or May be you be i teen away a Long time it sea and Don t know what Lias happened Wyllo you be been Quot just so Quot answered the Sailor and Ous to wipe away the impression of the unguarded exclamation into which lie had Lieen betrayed. A a its quite a Little Romance a continued tho Shopman who woe Only too anxious to Tell All he knew. Quot judge Farrell you must know was one of our richest men in fact that very estate Hod been in his family since the first settlement of the country or rather since we came Over and conquered the dutchmen who had it first you know and he was very proud of it. They say he took it much to heart when his two sons died one after the other leaving Only a puny girl to inherit the family acre. She was the Apple of the judge z Eye he fairly dated on her and spoilt tier As it always happens in such eases. 8he was a Beauty miss Lilian is not a bit like her strange to say it has often Lieen remarked though she is As handsome As her Mother was but then it is n different style of Beauty. Lilian Farrell Mother Aud daughter both named alike you see was queenly proud and haughty with Gray eyes and dark Brown hair while Lilian Waldron is a Quot in be seen interpolated the rat Lor. A a a 1 then i Tell you what she is like. Lilian Farrell had suitors in abundance wealthy ones too a but with the capriciousness of her nature and contrary to her fathers wishes she passed them All to bestow her hand upon John Waldron who was then Only a poor clerk in a brokers Foll Cen but he was a splendid looking fellow a Fine looking Man to this Day sir and she loved him and have anybody else and so the old judge was at last obliged to give Bis consent he refuse her anything hut it went very much against his Ralu though and he did it very reluctantly. To always had the idea and he never got Over it to his dying Day sir that Waldron had taken advantage of his Good looks to flu his daughter s heart not for herself but for her Money but i think the old judge wronged him there for there never was a More devoted or better husband than he a the old judge Mude his will Aud settled the estate upon Lilian and her children and lied it up in such a Way that Waldron could never get hold of it even if his wife wished to it Asa it Over to him hut for All ids doubts he set him up in business and took him Home for he could not Bear tho idea of being separated from his daughter. They had a Happy household and the old Man must have seen that his daughter never regretted her Choice hut he was quit old going on to seventy and Only two years after the marriage just Long enough to fondle his grandchild a Little. A a they do say but i will not vouch for the truth of this that when he was sinking fast he called or. Waldron to his bedside and thus addressed him a a it May be John that i have wronged you i am going now where All will he made dear to me. Wealth 1� a great temptation men will do most anything for Money. Treat her Well for without her you will have nothing. It All goes to Lilian and her Quot so tho old Man died with Bis prejudice against Waldron concluded next week. A singular cose. A singular Case of endurance by a horse is reported from Montgomery Ala. A Man Protu the country came to the City and bought a horse and buggy hot on going borne the horse threw him out and ran and could not be found again. After a search which was vigorously prosecuted for ten Day the hone and buggy were found in a swamp so wedged in among the tree that the animal could not stir.
