Fort Wayne Weekly Breeze (Newspaper) - December 19, 1895, Fort Wayne, Indiana Chapter xxv continued after his last speech colonel Prinsen had addressed himself to mrs. Knox but though apparently giving All his Atten a Tion to what she was saying he heard every word that passed in the window Comer to which Jane had returned. Pron Iise me a Jack Blount was saying eagerly a Promise me that you will Wear the Flowers i Send Quot miss Knox wont Promise that in a sure a cried Valentine Graeme boys Fly Impi live. A Why not a asked Blount with a conceited smile. A because i have sent her some already and and it would not be fair a a a favors Don t go by roster a contempt doubly. Jane smiled but would not commit herself to an opinion. A How do you generally decide which bouquet you will take a asked Barry Larron lounging no to them his dark face expressive of mingled amusement and admiration. A i take the prettiest a answered Jane. A a done to you think that is As Good a Way As any out of the Dilli culty a a and if they Are equal in their merits a a then i choose the one that Best matches Ray a Scarlet and White go with anything Quot exclaimed Val Graeme eagerly. Just then mrs. Knox called to him to corroborate a statement and As Barry Larron also turned away Jack Blount leaned Forward. A i shall Send you yellow roses a he said in an Uncort a ii which however two people overheard. A thought flashed across colonel Prin Bepis mind that were he to Send her a bouquet he would guarantee to please her taste. He knew All her favorite scents and Flowers and was also aware of the fancy she had for always by preference wearing White. Nor had major Larron been less observant and an idea struck him then that caused a sardonic smile to flit across his lips. Colonel Prinsen Rose to say a Good by a and the others followed his example the adjutant and the a. D. C. Staying a moment to Wrangle about the number of dances each was to receive. When this was settled to the satisfaction of neither a the Hon. Barry Larron put in his claim. Chapter xxv when their visitors were gone mrs. Knox sunk Down i on a chair and fanned herself Vigo Rusly. A what could have made him come a she sighed out at length and though no name was mentioned. June did not pretend to doubt As to whom the pronoun referred. A perhaps it was what he said a sense of duty a she Anst rom quietly. Yet though outwardly Calm a gleam in her Hazel eyes told of inward excitement and her fingers were fidget Ting nervously with tie Silver buckle of her Belt. She wondered whether he had Nolice Ltd or. Blount s attention and whether it were in her Power to inflict a Pang upon him by encouraging the same. She Felt Hurt and sore capable of doing or saying anything that would move his impenetrable Calm. It was so humiliating to know that she loved him still and must love him always while he had forgotten quite. She had gone into the veranda to grow Cool and so be alone wandering round to the other wide of the House out of eight of the drawing room windows. Presently the sound of her own name smote her oar. And turning she saw sergeant Lynn standing in the Shadow of a near clump of Trees. A i want to speak to you a he said in a Low voice. For a moment she hesitate Ltd and shrunk Buck. The Man was looking White and Haggard and she did not feel equal to the violent scene which his whole appearance and manner portended. A you Are afraid of me a he remarked with bitterness. This decided her. Her fathers Terai hat Lay on the chair and snatching it up fihe crushed it on her Bright hair and ran quickly Down the Steps to join him. A i did not know that you were a we Only marched in this morning and directly 1 could get away i came Here. I have been waiting More than three hours on the Chance of seeing a Why did you not come to the House a a with the colonel and the adjutant and major Lairon Salamino All the time like a native to show you the great difference there is Between them and me a a scornfully. A Jacob Jacob do not talk so wildly a a i speak As i have Felt. Surely that need not Shock you. Though you Are As far above me As the Angels you might pity instead of shrinking from me. Remember what i am you have made a you Exave no right a she faltered looking up at him with terror stricken eyes. A no i have no right. Of that your father rightly or wrongly i done to pretend to judge deprived me yet i never thought that you would have stooped to Thield yourself behind his a nor did i. I know nothing of his intentions. Jacob you talk of pity yet you have no pity for me. Knowing How i tried to be True you need not reproach me a to was the colonel. If he had not come you would have been my wife a perhaps. I never loved a you have told me that so often i wonder i do not give you hate for hate. You have been my evil Genius. Had it not been for a Quot of i might be my own self instead of the miserable drunkard that i a yet for your own Sake Jacob if not for mine you might have striven against such a terrible habit. Father told me that you had promised to refrain and i was hoping a a Hope nothing Jenny it too late for that now whatever it might have been then. I tried at first for a whole month i did not let a drop Ray lips then i grew gloomy and dispirited. I knew i was Only following a will of the Wisp that i had no real Chance of winning you try As i might to be steady and sober. If you would Promise me something definite per Hajis a she recoiled from him in dismay. A you done to mean to marry you a she cried. A would you Promise that if i you a they had Stoj Ped beneath the Trees and the sunlight glinting through the branches lighted up the Gay uniform of the Hussar and fell upon his Good look ing face As he stood waiting for her to speak. A ooh no no a she murmured and hid her face in her hands. But he Drew them gently Down looking sadly into her eyes. A a done to be afraid Little Jenny. I was not going to ask that. I know i am not worthy of you that it would Only be dragging you Down with me. Nothing now can save me from a drunkards the tears were streaming Down her pretty face and her figure swayed restlessly to and fro in her agitation for was not this All her doing her fault of Jacob let me help you let me do something to atone a a my pretty one your sympathy does me More Good than you can know. On my soul i will try to Amend if Only to spare you grief. And Jenny Promise me some Liing too Promise i or that you will not marry until a a then so Long As you wish me not to marry i will not a she substituted meekly and lifted her eyes to him so full of a tenderest compassion that looking into them he could not but believe she would hold to what she said even though his Doull to might return when of moved from her presence. A Tell me you forgive me a she Whis put red As she turned to go. A i do forgive you and Jenny think of me too As kindly As you he grasped her hands so tightly that she nearly cried out. His eyes were fixed upon her intently As though wishing to keep her always so in mind Beautiful in her womanly sorrow and thinking Only of him. For a moment he stood so then with a deep sigh released her and strode away his head raised defiantly and cutting at the Heads of the tall grasses with his whip As he went. W Hen she went in she met her Mother in the Hall. A Jenny there Are some Flowers come for you. Young men spoil you that a a Quot you know it pleases you far More than it does me a she said smiling. A i believe it does. You take it so quietly that one might think you had been accustomed to it All your life. Why child you have been crying what about a a bringing her keen eyes to Bear upon her daughters tear stained face. A a it a not about the colonel a she added quickly. A no no. Is it Likely when lie cares so Little for me a a lifting her head proudly. A perhaps for that very reason a thought mrs. Knox shrewdly Lut she would not vex Tane by saying so aloud. A Conn and see your she said instead a a Ait Don t cry any More Jenny or i shall be disappointed of Selt ing my daughter the acknowledged Beauty of the Ball. Remember i have never participated in any of your Tri Uinn is a then i will look my let est for your Sake but a looking Down indifferently at the creamy blossoms lying in their bed of Green a you must have roses Mother they will enliven your Black dress Lud i shall Wear those or. Graeme sent and in spite of All she carried her Point and Jack blounts yellow roses which he had taken so much trouble to beg buy and steal from different places in the station instead of making lovelier still the Lovely face and figure for which the were , adorned the cheap Black silk lace Cap of mrs. Knox. But after All Jane never wore Valentine Graemes Flowers. Just As she had gone to her room to dress the ayah came in carrying a Large Basket. Jane Drew away the ferns that Lay across the top and discovered a bouquet beautifully arranged with some Flowers lying Loose for her gown and hair. They were All White with Only delicate Maidenhair ferns and their own leaves to lend a tinge of color w hence they had come remained a mystery the Man who had brought them had left at once., Only saying that they were for the a miss Sahib a and As he was a coolie and not a liveried servant it was impossible to guess by whom they had been sent. Mrs. Knox was called in to give her views on the so object but could throw no Light upon it and the quartermaster proved equally bad at guessing. A father a asked Jane abruptly a have you heard anything of Jacob Lynn a a the came in to Day with the rest of the men from the Hill depot. The change of air has not done much for him he was looking wretchedly bad. I a a does does he drink still a a the quartermaster looked grave. He had had Hopes of him at first but latterly for he had made a Point of inquiring the accounts were very bad. A i am afraid it is All up with him a he said at last. A the has been reduced to a private you know since he left Al pore and now having less to lose will grow reckless i a can t we do anything for him Don t you think if we had him Here a a there a cried the quartermaster enraged at the idea. A if i catch him Here ill break every Bone in his body. What business had he to go courting j of when he knew he was no fit husband for any girl. For the matter of that i ought to have known it myself. He comes of a bad Breed and he had got into bad habitat Long before i suspected anything. As is Ali ays the Case the one most interested is last to hear the the subject was dropped and Jane was left at Leisure to pursue other and More pleasurable thoughts. In her own mind she had decided that the Lovely Flowers which had come last and were exactly what she herself would have chosen could have come from none other thas Stephen in rinse. Chapter xxvii. The mess House of the a the Hussars was a very Large one. And peculiarly fitted for occasions like the present not Only were the rooms wide and lofty but they were Well shaped As Well and consequently easily decorated. They had already begun the program when Jane arrived. Site came in shyly behind her father and Mother but holding her bouquet proudly in her hand As though its Possession gave her Confidence. She was wondering whether colonel Prinsen would ask her to dance. She heard his voice speaking to her Mother. As Host he had come Forward immediately to meet them and now took Jane a hand for a moment in his own. A i Quot of Are late. Miss Knox a he said and the formality of his address sent a chill to the girls heart. At this moment or. Blount came up. A miss Knox i thought you were never coming. One of our dances is already finished and of Why did no to you Wear Iny Flowers a she glanced at Stephen Prinsen to see if he looked conscious but he was talking to her Mother again and apparently paying no attention to herself. A i Only promised to Wear the prettiest if you remember a she answered to Jack Blount. A i would live sent you White Flowers if i had known you liked them Best All White �?o1 am Vei a glad you did Jot it a a Ahe ejaculated time the colonel heard and turning suddenly their eyes met. His were grave in their expression almost angry she thought or was it Only pained her glance first sad and shy grew a wild with All regret As the memories of those Days which were no More passed swiftly through her mind. She moved toward Jack Blount. A a done to let us lose this dance too a she said hastily and the next moment was whirled among the dancers. Other gusts arrived and colonel Prinsen had social duties to per Fonn but he found time Ever and anon to notice Jane As she flitted past with her different partners. By and by he allowed himself a dance with Diana Knollys. More because she was an exceptionally Good dancer than from any memory of their old acquaintanceship. A my Only dance that has not been a duty one a he told her with his pleased smile. A then 1 must feel a no done to do that or you will make me vain beyond endurance. Tell me instead How you like Alij Tore now that you know it a you forget that 1 have been away from it As Long As you. We went to Simla for the hot weather. I did like that but there i knew so Many people. Here i Hare scarcely any friends. Miss Knox is nearly my Only a you like her done to Yon remember i told you that you would a a and of course prejudiced me against her. Women never like each other to order you know. But i do like her now very much. A just then Jane passed. Jack Blount was with her his ugly conceited Little face beaming and exerting himself to the utmost to make himself agreeable evidently not failing in his Endeavor if Jane a rippling laughter were to be believed. A i wish she would not encourage him so a said miss Knollys uneasily. A Why Don t you think him Nice a a i think him detestable but alien i am nearly alone in my opinion. He was immensely popular at Simla and indeed women seemed to like a then Why should you hold aloof a Diana Knollys smiled archly. A they say a she said in careless tones a the has come Here especially to propose to Jane Knox and should she refuse him a a do you think she will a broke in colonel Prinsen. A How can i Tell i Hope she will although in that Case i Prophesy fish her what the French Call a a bad Quarter of an a he laughed in Reily but some Twenty minutes later her words came Back to him when he saw Jane go into the veranda with Jack Blount and after the next dance had begun they were both absent still. An uneasy feeling prompted him a a follow theia to be on tinted Groyer a plan Good.50 says Carlisle in his annual report. Secretary of the Treasury practically repeats the presidents Messare or gym retirement of Treasury notes a expects a $7,000,000 surplus. Carlisle on currency. Sei rotary Carlisles annual report on the state of the finances was sent to Congress monday. It shows that the revenues of Rlue government from All sources during that last fiscal year amounted to the expenditures during the same period aggregated 178,42 5, leaving a deficit for the year of $42,805,-22,. As compared with the fiscal year 1804, the receipts for 1805 increased $17,-570,7 in it although there was a decrease f $11,329,981 in the Ordinary expenditures which is largely accounted for by a reduction of $11,134,055 on sugar bounties. The revenues for the current fiscal year Are estimated upon the basis of existing Laws at $481,907,407 and the expenditures at $448,907,407, which will leave a deficit of $17,0 x ,000. For the coming fiscal year ending june 30, 1897, the Secretary estimates the receipts at $404,793,120 and the expenditures at $457,884,193, or an estimated surplus of $0,908,92 it. The Secretary states briefly the facts concerning the issues of Bonds during the year the particulars of which have already been re ported to Congress. The Secretary devotes a Large share of his report to a discussion of the Condi Ion of the Treasury and the currency in the course of which he makes an exhaustive argument in favor of the retirement of the greenbacks. A the Cash balance in the Treasury on the first Day of december 1895,�?� he says a was $177,40g,. I8g, being $98,072,-420 in excess of the actual Gold Reserve of that Day. And $77,400,880 in excess of any sum that it would be Nessary to use for replenishing that fund ii Case the Secretary should at any time be Able to 1�?~xchauge currency for Gold. A phen is therefore no reason to doubt the ability of the government to discharge All its current obligations during the present fiscal year and have a Large Cash balance at its close without imposing additional taxation in any form upon the people but i adhere to the opinion heretofore exp dressed that the Sec notary of the Treasury ought always to have authority to Isku it did sell or use in the payment of expenses Short time Bonds bearing a Low rate of interest to Supply casual de i Cienciera in the Revenue. Figures on a surplus. Quot with Complete return to the Normal business conditions of the country and a proper legislative and executive supervision Over expenditures the Revenue Laws now in Force will in my opinion yield Arjile Means for the Supi Ort of the Public service upon the basis now Stab Lisle a and upon the Assumption which seems to be justified that the Progress now b ing made toward the restoration of our usual state of Prosperity will continue without serious interruption it is estimated that there will be a surplus of nearly $7,00i�,000 during the fiscal year 1897. During the fiscal years 1894 and 1895 the Ordinary expenditures of the government have be u decreased $27,-282.05 .20, As compared with the fiscal year 1898, and it is believed that with the co operation of Congress further reduction can be made in ten future without impairing the efficiency of the Public continuing he says a the Large withdrawals of Gold in december 1894, and in january and the Early part of february. 1895. Were due almost entirely to a feeling of apprehension in the Public mind which increased in intensity from Day to Day until it nearly reached the prop it or tons of a panic and it was evident to All who were familiar with the situation that unless effectual Stips were promptly taken to Check the growing distrust the Trovei in sent would be compelled w Ith in a few Days to suspend Gold payments and drop to a depreciated Silver and paper Standard. More than $48,000,000 of the amount withdrawn during the Brief pm Iod last mentioned was not demanded for i Ort but was taken out by Peop who had become alarmed on account of the critical condition of the Treasury in its relations to the currency of the country. The Purchase of 8,300, it ounces of Gold the beneficial effects of this transaction the Secretary says were Felt immediately not Only in this country but in every other having commercial relations with us. A a conf dec a in our securities was at once re Stochl. The safety of the existing situation is , constantly menaced and our further Progri is toward a Complete restoration of Confidence and pros purify is seriously impeded by the defects in our currency and the doubt and uncertainty still prevailing in the Public mind find abroad concerning the future monetary policy of the the Secretary Beli ves that there never has been a time since the close of the War when the gradual retirement and cancellation of the United states notes would not have been a Benefit to the cot try nor when the Issue of additional notes of the same character would not have been injurious to the country. It would be difficult he says if not impossible to devise a More expensive or dangerous system than the one now in operation under the Laws providing for the Issue redemption and reissue of Legal tender notes by the government. Or. Carlisle declares that he is thoroughly convinced that this system ought not to be continued but that the United states notes and Treasury notes should be retired from circulation at the earliest practicable Day and that the government should be wholly relieved Anim the responsibility of providing a or unlit currency for the peple. The notion that the Mere j Possession of a surplus in the Treasury would prevent withdrawals of Gold and thus Render the Issue of Bonds for the Protection of the Reserve unnecessary is founded in his judgment upon an entire misconception of Tho causes that have Broil used the withdrawals. There is he thinks but one Safe and effectual Way to protect the Treasury against Toliese demands to retire and cancel the notes by authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to Issue from time to it time Bonds payable in Gold bearing interest at a rate not exceeding 3 per cent per annul and having a Long time to run and to Exchange the Bonds for United states notes and Treasury notes upon such terms As May be nut St advantageous to the government or to sell them abroad for Gold whenever in his judgment it is advisable to do so and to use the Gold thus obtained in redeeming the outstanding to big men.

They did not reach the destinations the sender of them intended but were taken Possession of Bapt Stuart of the in Ostal secret service. Capt Stuart also has in his charge s. A. Owens who says he heard two men talking of their Schenuk to kill Pullman and Armour and almost ran his legs off Sutt Day night to warn them of the Fate in store for them.
