Faint heart Neer won fair a hat of last rear s fashion but her eye.3 were like Gray and her manner dreadfully Quick and Bright and sparkling i should Call my dear Richard you Are really absurd. The girl is a Hospital nurse and what woman with any refinement or delicacy would take up such a profession As that it shows she can t be ladies do such things nowadays less defiantly. Now you know you re Only saying so because she s pretty. Of course ladies do queer things nowadays but that does t excuse an a womanly fueling besides she is Only a solicitor s daughter. I Shan t ask Mamma to but Don t von think common civility no i Don t. She s Only staying at the rectory and we re not forced to Call on every one s friends. Besides capt. Child Wick is expected Home and it would make it awkward. What would one of lord Belmont s people say if we asked them to meet a girl like miss travers All the same she Sas pretty and Ladylike As any one i Ever met in these very Likely but she s not in our set. Now Richard if you say any More i shall begin think you re falling in love with her if the idea is not too but Richard had closed the drawing room door upon his six Sisters languid voices Aud was half Way across the wide Lawn with its Brilliant parterre of summer Flowers. Poor Richard .41-Lerdyce Only son of the richest banker in Che Lowdean people of Good family but with just that uncertainty of soc us position which made them afraid of overstepping any boundaries rather gratified at being on terms with lord Belmont and the Hardwi Okes. He was of divided mind this summer afternoon. He had been greatly taken by that Sweet face Aud slight figure in the rectory Pew last sunday was sensible of a thrill of More than civil interest when he met their owner walking Home with the Good old Rector after service and was introduced to "31i�s travels while the eyes like Gray stars were suddenly raised to his and he had Ever since that time spent a larger portion of his time than was strictly needful in walking past the rectory s Rose covered Garden Gate. But on the other Side his Sisters words had certainly struck Home. Brought up As All the Allerdyce were like Hothouse plants sheltered from every breath of frosty air it was not strange that Richaid at 20, though a big Burly enough Young englishman to look at was but Little of a Man in mind or heart. Knowledge of the world had been carefully kept from him As from his a Sisters lest they should learn evil but their very ignorance had Cost them the loss of Power to choose Between evil Aud Good and had Given them weak prejudices and conceited instead of a mind Able to discern and prefer the right. Richard s handsome face was overcast As he swung out of the Lodge Gates and Down the Road. Miss travers a Hospital nurse 1 certainly it was a Shock. Not Only did it seem to him a womanly for a woman to work at All but infinitely More to to do menial work. And then the awful thought of what his Mother and Sisters would say were they asked to receive a Hospital nurse As his future wife for it had gone As far As that in Richard s susceptible mind even in these three Short Days. All at once his thoughts broke off As miss travers herself Sweet and Bright As Ever in her Black dress came out from the rectory Gate the great rectory mastiff pacing behind her. Now Richard s own Collie was at his master s heels and there was a Border feud of Long standing Between these two faithful followers. Thero was Ono angry growl a heavy Rush a thud and then a Brown body and a Black rolled together in Tho dust in a manner suggestive of a dog s funeral on one Side or the other. Richard who was actually staggered by Tho suddenness of it All could not for a moment regain his senses Aud when he did it was to find miss travers both White hands locked in Tho hair of Rollo s shaggy neck pulling him from his foe with All her strength and calling to or. Aller Dee to take hold of his dog and pull hint she was being whirled round in the Clond of dust by the frantic Waltzes before Richard could quite Settle where to take hold but that task was performed for him by a gentleman in Tweed knickerbockers who started out of the White Hart a few rods away and ran to the Rescue. Between miss travel s and himself the Walters were separated each carrying away a few fragments of Iho other s 2 arson and miss traverse uns hed panting covered with dust but looking lovelier than Richard had Ever Ucen woman look before Sank Back against the rectory Wall and tried to laugh. Tje stranger lifted his hat looking straight at her with a pair of piercing Brown eyes. Execute me miss travers he Taid in rather a off hand manner but that was about As rash a. Thing As any Ono could possibly do. The dogs might both Havo turned on Vou and bitter you thank Yon capt. Hardwicke i had not the least fear was her response Given with a Little haughtiness and the gentleman with n nod to Richard turned and strode away As rapidly As he had come. Miss Trivers Are you Hurt Richard was Able to articulate at last. Von never should have done a thing Liko that. Hardwicke was right it was new in lev rash by the Way you know Hardwicke to i m not Hurt a the wonderful Gray eyes were dancing with fun now. Don t scold inc. Please. I know it was a silly thing to do but i did t Stoj to think. I Rny Don t look so horrified but if you had been bitten a Well i was and her face dimpled with a Friendly smile at his shocked look. But you know Hardwicke to persisted unable to get Over his Surprise in that Quarter. Of her face grew cold instantly capt. Hardwicke was in Hospital with an Accident some months ago my Hospital. I had charge of him there that s and she pulled a Rose so sharply from the hedge that it fell o pieces in her hands. Look there she laughed showering the petals on the ground before her let us cover Over the Battle Field with Flowers and she laughed again. Richard went Home More thoughtful than Ever. Surely this woman was a novel thing in his experience of men and manness. She acted wit i the skill and daring of a Man and yet he would rather not think what his Sisters faces would be like had they but seen it. Was it actually Ladylike ? or should she not rather have lied from the scene of conflict or even have screamed and fainted to be sure she had looked As Beautiful As an avenging Amazon but was it quite Correct conduct for a girl and capt. Hardwicke s manner so abrupt and dictatorial he seemed to show her the difference in social position Between a Nobleman s Nephew Aud a Hospital nurse. It must have been an awkward meeting As his Sisters had said. And then a cold shiver came Over him As he thought of miss travers introduced As mrs. Richard Allerdyce at Belmont Castle Aud capt. Hardwicke s Stony stare of Surprise. And yet and yet she was so Beautiful. Nearly three weeks since the dog episode and Richard s courage still wavered in the balance. He had grown to know miss travers Well in those three weeks and to know her Well was but to love her better. There never was a woman so Sweet so Clever so sympathetic so Beautiful he was certain of that no woman to More ardently longed to have for his own and yet and yet that terrible strength of character that profession that Lack of Pedigree Only last night in the Moonlit rectory Garden he had almost Flung All prudence to the winds she had been so dangerously fatally Sweet she was always especially kind to him but he reeled Back from the Gulf just in time when she mentioned casually without a change of voice or countenance that she had an Uncle who was a chemist in Rochester. A chemist shades of my ancestors protect me Richard recoiled again As he thought of it and fancied Hardwicke s look if he could Havo heard her. For capt. Hardwicke was still at the White Hart and perhaps his presence and the atmosphere of exalted society about him had been one of Richard s restraining though unconscious influences. Now us to slowly worked Way up the steepest Hill in the neighbourhood on his new tricycle he pondering the old question in his mind. Could he take the fatal i Limgo or was it too costly a trim Graceful figure on the Road before him. As at last he gained the Summit drove All else to the four winds and in an instant he had overtaken the object of his cogitations and sprung to the ground beside her. Or. Allerdyce she said turning with her own Bright look to shake hands How like a ghost you stole upon me of i see it was on a tricycle and what a Beauty do let to look at and Richard nothing Loath began to display his new toy a perfect thing in build Aud finish the Allerdyce possessions always were Tho most perfect of their kind he began to explain it to her forgetting All about the chemist Uncle but she interrupted him. Ves i know All about them thanks i see it is a regular bit of perfection. I should so like to try it May i once More Richard was dumb with Surprise. A lady on a tricycle was As yet an unheard of thing in rustic. Che Lowdean and it seemed an outrageous idea to him i really Don t think you could to faltered. My Sisters have never Dono such a your Sisters of perhaps not with a Little smile at Tho idea. But i am quite used to tricycles. I ride Ono whenever i can get a further blow for Richard but Fiere was no knowing How to refuse her and he stood aside. She took her place Liko one who was thoroughly used to tricycles and he could not but admit she adorned her position. What a delicious Hill to run Down she said with a Happy Little laugh As she placed her Dainty feet on Tho treadle. I really must try Pray Pray Don t attempt it was Richard s horrified remonstrance for the Hill stretched Down even More abruptly than on the Side he had ascended and near Tho Bottom there was a sudden Sharp turn with the railway Lino running just below Tho Nastiest bit of Road for Miles around. Perhaps even Agatha travers would have hesitated to Hazard it had it not been for the consternation in Richard s face. " or. Allerdyce you Are fainthearted she Baid gayly As she started on her downward course a Litlo More rapidly than she had at first intended but Richard s now tricycle ran smoothly. His heart was in Lii to Mouth As Tho country Folk say As she began to Glido rapidly off. She turned her head and flashed Back a merry Defiance. My Uncle the chemist at Rochester used to Bay then Tho wicked spa Klo faded suddenly and she called Quick and Clear Canyon Stop to please the Brake is still i can t make it work it s running poor Richard of the faint heart it seemed to die within him. The next second she darted Forward but it was just one second too late. The Check she had been Able to put on Tho heavy Maeline with the treadle Censed to keep it Back Aud faster and faster it Tore Down Tho perilous Road. In All his life to come Richard will never know any minute so Long As that next while the straight slight figure flying through Ponee seemed to swim before his eyes and bin Knees knocked together As he Stool. On on faster faster she Managad somehow to cling to the steering handle and keep the machine in the Middle of the Road bit the mad Pace grew More desperate. She could never turn that fatal Corner by the railway embankment Over it she must go. Audit was just then that Lii inn and slip both together saw Tho pud of Sizow a White smoke from the Hill Side that j told them the evening was out i of the Tunnel and thundering Down i that very bit of line j it All jew by Dover Agatha in one Rush would the fall kill her or would it be Tho train it must be one or the other the next second or two would Settle that and a Swift prayer was on her lips but what she never quite know for even As she breathed it some one or something in Brown Tweed knickerbockers hurled itself Over the Roadside Stile before her a Stout stick darted into the flying wheel and with one Quick swerve the tricycle crashed into Tho ditch and Lay there a confused mass of spinning spokes an 1 mutilated tires while Agatha Lew out from its midst like a Hall and alighted on a Grassy Bank a Yard or two away and the express rushed past with a wild yell on line just below and vanished round a Sharp curve that matched the Road above it. Then and thou alone did Richard s legs regain their Power of motion and he set off As fast As they could carry him of where the Little Black figure Jay. Somehow it took longer to run Down that Hill than the last descent would have led one to think for when Richard panting and breathless reached the scene of the Accident the Little Black figure very much out of its usual trim neatness was on the Grassy tangle that broke her fall busily binding up with her own Small handkerchief a deep Gash in the hand of Tho Knickerbock ered person who Knelt at. Her Side. It was a very Pale face that looked up at Richards with Tho sort of Awe that any human creature must Wear who has just been face to face with death but her great Grey eyes had a wonderful Flushing Light in them. The poor tricycle she said i am so sorry. Is it very badly Hurt and in the Fervour Aud Relief of gladness Richard could find words for nothing but bother the tricycle he was ready enough to say iome thing however presently when he found himself obliged to Stop and see its remains decently cared for while capt. Hardwicke took charge of miss travers return to the rectory. She said she was none the worse for her fall but perhaps she was a Little shaken but capt. Hardwicke kindly offered her his Arm and she took it. Richard hurried after them before Long his whole heart aglow. That awful minute this afternoon had taught him that life without Agatha travers would seem a poor and worthless thing were she a factory girl. He hurried after them therefore and came in sight of the rectory Gate As two hands one very neatly bandaged a clasped Over it and a Small dark head raised itself swiftly from a Brown Tweed shoulder where it seemed to have been resting. Good gracious was All Richard could utter As Agatha vanished Aud capt. Hardwicke looking of piously Radiant sauntered toward him. A Allerdyce old fellow caught us have you then i May As Well Tell you All my tremendous Good Luck at once and take your congratulations. Perhaps you be heard How miss travels nursing saved my life last year and when of course i fell in love with her As who would to she would have it it was Only gratitude and refused to lot to make what she called a Mes Alliance just because there s that brute of a title coming to me some Day. I told her i thought All that rubbish was obsolete and offered to drop the title altogether if she liked but nothing would do and to parted rather out of temper. I Hoard she was Down Here and ran Down to see my Uncle hoping he would talk her Over but i began to think it was no use. And do you know i was frantically jealous of you old follow 1 saw she liked of and i almost believe you could have Cut to out Early in the Day if you d had the Pluck to try she was so set against me. But to Day she made it All right and she thinks i be saved her life this time so we re quits. Well old Man am i not Tho Luckiest Man alive but but stammered the wretched Richard surely her family she s an orphan. Of i see what you mean she told me she had been shocking you with an Uncle who s a chemist or a Butcher or goodness knows what. Bali i should think the incr fact of being a Hospital nurse was a Patent of nobility to any woman. But if my Little girl were a beggar Maiden she would still to a real Princess. 0 of bless her and Richard s groan May have been a is family Maya Eine. Lamp Tun in a tight place a Middle aged Man approached Gen. Hampton and asked his influence in pressing a claim before the military committee of Tho Senate. The stranger then said general i am glad to see you again you do not recognize me but you personally made a prisoner of me during the comparing notes Hamilton found ont that it was a fact and recalled Tho circumstances. He was reconnoitre King Ono night and missed his Way. Around him burned Many More Camp fire than to had left behind him. Entering n House to discovered that to had strayed into Tho enemy s lines. A few soldiers were seated at a table and abruptly addressing Vliem As if a Superior officer of their own army he asked who they were and what Thoy were doing there. One Man spoke up and replied to belong to the eighth new York regiment und Ion. Warren sent us to get Hampton Felt that All of his nerve and address would be required to extricate himself from this dangerous position. To reached for his pistol held it along his thigh and on leaving Tho Houv commanded Filje Man who Hod spoken to him to follow he did so. Hampton mounted his horse and called the a i to him. Bending Down to the Federal Ijo Jiei s ear he whispered i have a pistol aimed at your i head and will shoot you if airy alarm is made the surprised Soldier whiskered Don t shoot i Hampton Bado him Moye on just ahead of his horse and no brought 1 pm into the con o Legato Camp if was this Man who after More than Twenty years met his captor and asked a favor of him As a senator that he was More than willing to Grant. It was a strange and romantic in the returning cycles of Timo a i cd chronicle. It is All nonsense trying to escudo yourself for wrongs done wilfully and with malice aforethought.

On the formation of the Federal Constitution Gouverneur Morris who had been a conspicuous member of the convention being asked what he thought of the Constitution re filled that depends upon How it is the democratic party originated in a resistance by the More advanced patriots of the revolution to the efforts which were Maele to change the character of our government by false constructions of the Constitution impressing on the new system a monarchical Bias. Or. Jefferson s election in Jsu rescued our free institutions from the perils which surrounded them and secured sixty years of administration mainly in Harmony with their design and True character. When an attempt was made to break up the Union and to dismember the territorial integrity of the country the people were compelled to make a Manly Choice Between these Calami tics and the dangerous influences of civil War upon the character of the government. They patriotically Anel wisely resolved to save the Union first and to re air the damage which our political system might sustain when the More imminent dangers hid been provided against. The first work was successfully accomplished but Twenty years have since elapsed and the work of restoring the government to its original charac or is not yet accomplished. Our Wise ancestors had warned us that if we fell into civil discords our free system was liable to perish in the struggle by an insensible change of its character. Not Only have the Best traditions of the patriots who won Independence and established Freedom lost their authority but our cherished political system is slowly losing its hold upon life under the fungus growth of false constructions and corrupt practices. Government itself has become a menacing Factor in the elections. As Long ago As 18701 expressed the opinion that the opposition must embrace at the beginning of the canvass two thirds of the voters to maintain a majority at the election. In this history repeats itself. In most countries the government maintains itself by Force of fraud. Even in Tho comparatively popular system of England Tho Monarch has until lately controlled a majority of parliament and frequently decided the elections by court favors jobs and Money taken from the Public Treasury. This is a hard saying but recent publications of the papers of her deceased statesmen Icahn no doubt upon the subject. In our own country the government instead of standing As an impartial arbiter amid Tho conflicts of maturing opinion Anel contending interests has itself descended into the Arena equipped with All the weapons of partisanship its myriads of office hollers its alliances with or against vast pecuniary interests its unlimited command of Money levied from its tie Pendents and contractors have sufficed to determine a majority in every ease but one. In that Rase it collected military forces around the Capitol and by this and other menaces intimidated the congressional representatives of a majority of Tho pole to relinquish the fruits of their Victory and to surrender the government to the control of a minority. No Reform of the Aelmini stration is possible As Long As the government is directed by a party which is under the Dominion of false doctrines and animated by enormous pecuniary interests in the perpetuation of existing abuses. The first effectual Steps in the Reform of our government must be a fundamental change in the policy of its administration. The work of Lefor willbe difficult enough with the whole Power of the government exerted in accomplishing it. I have such Faith in the Benignant Providence which has presided Over the destiny of our country in every great trial hitherto that i do not despair of our ultimate deliverance. Though i can no longer aspire to be one of the leaders in this great work. I bid those upon whom this August Mission May fall godspeed. New York april 11, 1884. S. J. Tilden. Mcdonald the Indiana sex senator announced As a candidate. Sex senator Mcdonald has been announced As a candidate for the presidency by the Indiana democratic Assoc Iatrou at Washington.
