Women’s Christian Temperance Union “He^s a splendid card,” exclaimed tho manager, enthusiastically. “Is he, indeed r said Vance Raymond, rather abstractedly, as he fazed at the packed auditorium. They were standiug in the lobby of the Varieties. Raymond had dropped in lor a few minutes while making his nightly round of the theaters. Tbe manager, eager for a good notice in the daily npon which his companion served as a dramatic • critic, was making himself almost offensively agreeable. “The hit of the show ho emphatically affirmed. “You’ll wait for Iiim, won’t you ? He comes on next.” don’t know whether I can spare tbe time,” said Raymond, amoothing out the play-bill that had lieen crumpled up in his hand. And, im type which stood out bolder than tbe rest, he read: LITTLE DOTl Tlie Phenomenal Child Artist, in his wonderful character changes”—followed by more terms of a laudatory character, similarly extravagant. ' Raymond carelessly cast his programme aside and watched the two upon the stage. They were going through what figured on the bills as an “acrobatic song and dance.” Presently they executed a remarkable somersault that brought forth a cloud of dust, and made their exit, foMowe<l by the deafening applause of the gallery. In response they came out and bowed, and the stamping of feet and clapping of hands giwdually ceased. The quiet that fell unoii the house was broken by the tinkle of the prompter’s bell. The eyes of the audience expectantly sought the wings. The musicians raised their instruments and began to play one of the popular airs in vogue. “Watch him,” whisjiered the man- ;er. “A born actor, aud no mistake.” As he sp'ike, a little figure, clad in a black velvet suit with delicately s’tripcd pink stockings, appeared on the stage. A crimson handkerchief protruded slightiv from his pocket and an eye-glass oangled at his side. In his hand he held a light cane, which he twirled foppishly at intervals. Such a pinched, wan face he tamed toward the audience, as he began bis song in the yellow glare of the footlights! A feverish flush was on his cheeks and flis eyes sparkled with unnatural brilliancy. Raymond felt his heart grow soft with pity as he listened to the rare, sweet voice tliat to his experienced car already showed signs of breaking. “Poor little chap,” he mnrmurctl; “he’s scarcely seven, 1 should judge.” And somehow a tender thought of his two little chicks, dreaming {lerhaps of tlieir childish heroes at tine time, came to him. lie watched Little Dot tlii-ough tbe mist that had gathered in his eyes. Tbe song soon came to an end and tlie child disappeared, followed by the eiitbusiastio approval of tho audience. The manager joined in Uic Carpenter, Just acquitted of Ui« murtler of Zora Dnrns, mortgaged bis real eaute for |13,000 to get money to defend biinsclf. Major H. W.

At druggists. applause aud turned to Raymond, his face beaming with pleasure. “£h? eh?” he said, delightedly. “Doesn’t he bring down the house? An infant prodigy, and all tliat, you know. ’Pou my word, it’s worth tho price of admission to see liim alone.” “Rather a fit subject for the Society r the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, I should say,” remarked Raymond, dryly. “For my part I hate your infant prodigies. They all ought to be iu their bcils at this hour cnjoy-iug tho sleep of healthful children.” The manager eyed him sharply. “Stuff and uoiisensc 1” ho grunted. Hien. In a more cheerful tone: “Just wgksn him thk next turn. His drunken man is something wonderful. I’m cauablo of criticizing that, you kiiow.^ And ho hushed tho chuckle on his lips as Little Dot—a complete mctamorphosis—staggered iu with a high silk hat crushed over hit eyes and a white handkeivhief hanging from his coat-tail pocket The drunken hiccough aud thick utterance with which he reiidei*ed the soug fairly convulsed the audience. When hd was through, ho waa greet ppl( “True to life, wasn’t it?” laughed ed with a terrific storm of applause. the manager. “Well, it ouglit to be; he’s had plenty of cliances to get points, goodness knows. His fatlier’s Whilcly.of the ‘StaiV wl»o are playing at the Globe this week. Go id actor, but boozes too much. That is whv no and his wife separated. It’s lucky she’s got the bov; he’s worth a cool $75 to her evcrv wcek.”^ Raymond listened with his eyes intent upon tho stage. Little Dot was reipoiiding to his second encore. When he fiiiishetl he was vociferously redcmanded. Again ho came out, and delivered a pathetic little recita tion that evoked Aesh applause. Raymond grew indignant “What a shame!” he muttered an-gilly. “They’d keep the poor little fellow before them the whole uight it they could.” At that mouicni Little Dot tp* red Arom the wings and raised his and to his lips. The pink glow on his cheeks had died out, and in its ilace was a look of utter weariness, 'he audience must have noticed it, for the house grew still and the performance proceeded witls the next act. Raymond buttoned up his overcoat closely and left the theater. It was a hitter night and the streets were well nigh deserted. The snow lay deep U|Mn the ground, and a raw, bleak wind blew the still falling fiakes remorselessly into hit face. In spite of all his efforts he conld not dismiss the peaked, wan face, from his thoughts. A picture rose before him of Little Dot, trudging his way back to tlie hotel in all the snow at an hour when other children were cosily tucked away in bed, and his heart was filled with pity at the contrast. “Poor little chap I” he said again, with a sigh. “I’U give him a good notice.” The next night found him at the Varieties behind the scenes. At his request he #as taken by the manager to tbe dressing-room that Little ^t occupied, and introduced to him. Tho child was with his mother waiting to “go on.” “It’s -the gentleman who was kind enough to write that notice about you,’’ she said to him. “You must thank him for it.” “Oh, it was you, was it?” he said, turning his big blue eyes up at Raymond. “You’re aii editor, ain’t you The awe with which he asked this question brought a'smile to Raymond’s face. “Not exactly,” he replied. “I write for the newspapers.” “Do you ?” said the child, eagerly. “How clever you must bel And it was you who wrote that about me. Thank you ever so much. You are very, very good.” He placed his hand to his forehead and held it there a moment. Raymond noticed it and looked grave. “Are you quite well?” he asked kindly. “Quite well,” the child faltered. “Only—only I’m a little tired, and— my head aches. Hurry, mamma,” as the call-boy appeared at the door; and, turning to Raymond, he held out his little hand. “Good-bye,” he said. “It’s time for me to go on.” Little Dot hastened with his mother through the dark and gloomy passage leading to the stage, and stood at a win^ waiting for his cue. His mother stationed herself near by to assist him ill making his changes. Raymond and the manager sought the front of the house. “I'liat youngster is going to be sick,” saiá the journalist with conviction, as they parted. “He looked half ill now. It’s too bad that snch a weak, delicate child should have to be out in such bitter weather. “Eh, what was that ? Sick, did you say ?” cried the manager, with alarm. I hope not—I hope not It might affect business, you know, if he didn’t appear. Ho is the strongest card on the bill this week.” Raymond curled his lip slightly at the other’s hoartlessness aud walked off. Someliow Little Dot interested him strangely. It might have been that be ragardcd the tiny favorite of the footlights with pitying tenderness tor the sake of his own children. The next night he raturncd to the Varieties, to find the fears he had entertained realized. Tho manager met him with a note in his hand. “Read it,” he said, with a scowl upon his face. Thus adjured, Raymond took it,and glanced hurriedly at the ooutents. It was to the effect that Little Dot was dangerously low with the scarlet fever, and, as a consequence, could not ])orform the rest of the week. ivords ho read brought up a vivid I'ecollcctiou of the two banes who had lain in tho terrible grasp of the scarlet fiend until only the great raother-love had won them back to life. A lump took possession of his throat. “Poor Little Dot,” he murmured. “I wouldn’t have had it hapiien for hundred dollars,” grumbled tho manager. “It places me in a deuce of a fix. It’s almost imjiossiblo to put any one on in his jilaco at such short notice.” “You’re in hard lines,’’ said Raymond, coldly. Something impelled him before he wcut to the newspaper office that night to seek tho second-class hotel where the child and his mother were stopping. Passing a florist’s on his way, he piuvhased a bunch of the creamy, full-blown roses that were temptingly displayetl in tbe window. These lie sent up to tlie sick r«x)m with his card and a request to know how the little tellow was. Presently tlie answer came—nol>et-tcr. Would ho go up? Mrs. Whitely would like to see him. Raymond followed the boy up stairs and softly entered the darkened room. The mother, with the marks of weariness about her eyes, came Arom tlie window where slic had been standing aud led the way to the bed. “lie was taken ill last night on his way back A*om tlio theater,” she whispei-ed. In a hoarse, strained tone, “i thought it was nothing but a cold and-and did not call iu a doctor. Rut he grew so much worse in the night that I had to scud for one, and he says it is scarlet fever in the most malignant form. Ho has liecn delirious nearly all the time. The doctor did not tell me w, and yet—I’m sure he’ll never get well again.” She gave a bitter sob, but her eyes were dry—her tears had been exhausted long ago,” “Oh, why doesen’t he come, why doesn’t he come?” She resumed her. place by the window, looking vacantly out at the wild, black night Raymond remained by tlie bedside and gazed compassionately down at the small face marked with livid spots. Near him stood a stand upon which his fragrant offering and several vials of medicine were placed. Suddenly tho little suicrcr opened his eyes with a faint moan. For a moment they rested ujnm Raymond and then wearily dosetf again. “Dad I” the parched lips formed. His mother approached the bed noiselessly and beut anxiously over him. “Yes, Dot,” she said, soothingly, “he will soon be here—soon be here. You won’t have long to wait now, darling;” aud looking up at Raymond, she continued, ifi a choking voice, “he wants to see his father. I have sent for him, but—but I don’t know whether he will come. He drank and—and we parted. God for-ive me, I have been to blame, too. h, do you think that he will come ?” llaymoud looked at his watch. The time lacked a few minutes of 11. “Yes, I am sure he will,” he said, pityingly. “He is at tlie Globe, I think. The performance is scarcely over. No matter how heavy an actores ^rief may be, he is obliged to disguise it sometimes and play his part. Yes, he will come, without doubt.” Slowly the minutes dragged by. Finally a faint knock waa heard at the door. She went and softly ojieucd it. A man entered on tiptoe. “Thank heaven you have come at lastl” she said. “I could not come before,” he uttered, hoarsely. How is he—better ?” She mournfully shook her head. He went and looked down at his child. His haggard face told of the violent grief that was raging in his breast. Raymond turned to go. He deemed the scene too sacred for hb presence. But the mother grasjicd kira by the arm, giving him a wild,*lll|iióft»y look. “SUy,” she said. “He liked you.” While his father stood there the the child opened his eyes and recognized him. “Dad!” he cried, stretching forth his little, hot hand affectionately. His father caught it, and held it in Ills cool palm. <‘Ycs, my boy,” he said, his strong voice treinDliug. “Give me a diink, dad,” he whispered, with difficulty. “Oh, dad,” with a pathetic moan, ‘I’m all burning up!” His father moistened hia lips with water. “There, Dot,” he said, with forced cheerfulness. “You feel better now, don’t j’ou? And you’re going to get well soon. Such good times we’ll have together when you do! We’ll ^    ■ The child interrupted pirn with a faint shake of his head. “No, dad,” he sakl, fixing his big eyes solemnly ujion him, “I won’t get well; and I want you to pfoinise me— promise me—” “Yes, Dot,” he said, with a groan. “That you won’t got—go^that way!” Ho looked steadily up. Ills father bowed his head, too Aill of anguish to speak. “That’s a good dad,” said tho child, fondly. “I knew you w'ould. You couldn’t help it, coiild you, <tad ?” Every word was a stab at the man’s heart Ho turned to Raymond. “For God’s sake get a doctor!” he said, brokciilv. “lie’sdying!” “No, no,” iiiterjioscd the ehild, hastily. “It’s too late—too late l Where’s mamma? I can’t see. I want her hand.” His mother came and hold out her trembling hand to him. Ills father gently endeavored to drew his away. “No, no!” said Dot, the words coming in gasps. “I want both—both.” Tie strove with his remaining strength to join them togcUicr. They saw what he tvished todo, and clasped hands. A peaceful smile lit up hia wan face. He said no more, and yet they iiudcr-stood.—[Tho Continent.

[Chicago Times.] I received an invitation a few days ago to dine with “the belle of Chi-htiahna.” She received the name in her youth, but she bears it still, though now past sixty years of age. She lives in a suburban residence not far from the city of Chihuahua. Tho lionse is of stone. Fruit trees are in tho garden. Rare old wines are in the cellar. The table service is of massive silver aud gold that were beaten into shape by hammers. A harp was being played upon as I entered. and when I had passed the threshold I saw a sylph-like form in folds of soft drapery slowly retreating, while I reccivM a glance from beauteous black e>^8 that made my blood tingle. Tnen came my hostess. Her face is distinguished, and its strong lines are softened by her long wiiite hair. She had been sitting on a verenda watching the sun set behind the mountain range that towered darkly in the distance. As I approached I recognized her as an interesting woman. Her surroundings suggested culture, reiiiicmeiit amj simplicitv. Book oíimé within the house held works from Paris and Seville. Here was a picture of Humboldt, there a picture of Maximilian. On one side of the veranda is a quaint little gai--dcn with a suggestion of sleepiness and quiet. Roses grow there and chrysanthemums. Beyond arc broad rolling prarics aud the peaks of distant mountains. I strove to look through tlie plush haze about the peaks and then I looked at my hostess. Her countenance wore a sweet smile of welcome. And then we dined. At my plate was a rosebud aud iny hostess’ card, bearing her own autograph. I shall always believe that peaches and cream have a new and bettor flavor when eaten jRttfiiig tioyoyU When eaten    sq &ilflrffiir dren’gi umqueretnrmn oranges and naiianas and plantaina aud grapes are tlie more delicious. After the A'uit and the coffee my hostess spoke of her niece, and the young lady of the guitar approached. With her was an uncle, a Mend of long acquaintance. He bade me welcome, and, lighting a cigar, sat some distance away. We began talking to them, the young lady and I, and, as she was curious as to the northern customs, wo soon grew very friendly'. Noticing that she kept her rebosa lialf hiding her head, I asked her whjr she did so. “Gli!” said she, laughing, while the the dimples struggled with the roses ill her cheeks; “when the maiden covers her head with lier rebosa, that incans she hates the cavalier ; when she lets it thus, she respects him, and when she removes it, then, O, seiior, it means she lo-o-ves him.” Alas! tho rebosa did not fall. delphia and secured a seat in the smoker. I carried my gold in a satchel and placed it alongside ot me on the seat I had barely settled myself when some one tapped on the car window. I looked out, and there was the companion. ‘You have forgotten a package at Barniim’s Hotel,°he said when I raised the window. I felt for mv satchel and said, ‘No, I guess not.’ ‘Ain’t vour name Smith?’ he asked. I realized then that a game had been put up to rob me, and slammed down the car window. “At Wilmington I left my seat and walked to the rear door, looking for an evening paper. As I stood there I instinctively glanced hack toward the seat where my satchel lay. A man stood there looking at the satchel, and iust then he reached over and pushed •ack my overcoat I supposed he was simply looking for a scat, but as I starteil back he gras|>ed my satchel, and in a twinkling had tossed it out the oi>en window. As I rushed toward him I recognized him as the man X met in the Treasury. By this time the train had started and the man ran toward the front door, and I followed. He Jumiicd on the plat-torm and fell, and I followed aud met with the same fate. We scrambled to our feet at the same instant, and I overtook him, and, drawing iny revolver, pointed it at his head, and told him to surrender. ‘My God, don’t shoot I’ he yelled, and then broke away and ran. 1 took aim at him and flriMl, but the cartridge missed fire. I chased him, however, and tired four shots, and at the fourth he fell. He got up again and csca|)cd in the darkness. I don’t know if I hit him or^iiot.
