BOSTON, Sept HO.—William Walters, claiming to bo from Kansas City, haa beeo arrested here cborg'Kl with obtaining 10,000 cigars from firms in this city ou forget! orders. "I shall novt-r marry," saul Enitl. "Nor I," snid Grace. "Nor I," snid Sophy. "I am wedded to nrt," continued the first speaker. "And I to literature," said the second. "And t to science," said the third. The combined agea of these damsels would have fallen several years short of the allotted threescore and ten, but if each speaker had seen seventy summers she could not have spoken with more decision. They wore all young, they were all rich, they were nil pretty. BO that tho chances were .gainst the aliova resolution being fnllillud. even in this Nine- Dentil century, when civilization haa lim to seed and brides are scarcer than they used to be, and the votaries of science and art and literature more numerous. Sophy and draco were sisters, Enid was their friend. Grace was tho eldest, Enid, the youngest, of the three. The sisters were both tall, line girls, with dark eyes and hair and thick, white complexions, smooth and spotless nc marble. Grace was beautiful, Sophy handsome; Grace was the paler, her features more delicately cut, her eyes softer. Sophy was the more vivacious, her eves brighter, her stnilo more animated, her laugh merrier. Enid was not the least-like her friends; she was small and very fair, with blue eyes and a quantity of pale golden hair, most of which was coiled into a. crown on tho top of her head, and the remainder curled about her forehead. She dressed in the aesthetic style, and was one of the very few who can do so with impunity. Max 1-eslie, brother to Sophy and Grace, was hopelessly in l<ivi> with her, but ho was n lawyer, while Enid was the bridoof aft, and what havo limv mid art In common with each otlior? "Men are BO prosaic," said Enid. "And BO stupid," said Sophy. "And so wicked," said Grace. "We'll have none- of them," 11 said the trio. "Girls, I have a plan, listen," said Enid. "Wo. three will go away to a lonely isle—I don't menu a desert island —but to Alderney.oronoof the Orkneys or to tho Isle of Man" No, not to Man, wo will havo nothing to do with Man', let ua go to one of tho Channel isles, there are no men there, at least, only a few ollicers—about ono to twenty girls," interrupted Snpliy, "To the Channel isles be it then; wo will take u house for three months, and we will make a solemn vow not a man shall cross the threshold from the day we enter till the day we leave," continued Enid. "Carried, mem. con.," cried tho sisters, and a fortnight later saw them settled iti 11 largo house overlooking one of the loveliest of tho Joreey bays. There had been obstacles to overcome In the form of protesting fathers and scandalized mothers, but the proposed exclusion of the stronger sex pacified the fathers, and the fact thut Enid's old nurse, a veritable duenna, was to make one of the party allayed all maternal tears, and in the end tho young people got their own way, as young people mostly do nowadays. Tho first month passed away without anything more exciting than a thunder storm occurring. The three aspirants to celibacy led a very simple life. They breakfasted at 9, dined at 1, had tea when they felt Inclined and supped at 8. In the mornings the bride of art sketched from nature or painted in her studio, the bride of science shut herself up in the library with a skeleton and studied medicine, while the bride of literature lay in a hammock and evolved tho plot of a three volume novel which was to take the world by storm. On Sundays they drove into St. Holier to church, where they attracted so much attentiou that after the second Sunday people began to call upon them. They were prepared for this contingency, and Rachel, Enid's nurse, met all visitors with a very solemn face and the samo information, namely, "that tho ladies were at home, but they did not intend to receive visitors during their stay in the island." Tills reply did its intended work; in a little place like Jersey it soon reached the ears of everybody who was anybody, and, as lew people cared to bo snubbed In this style, the .besiegers retired and the besieged were left in peace. No doubt they were delighted to have gained this victory, though their shouts lady tioi)|$r in the I s!;ind. "I n*oe. "T/Jt me s»o, d'-ar, if you !. : iv-..

"It ought to foci easier now it is in splints; does it, dour?" she inquired tenderly. "No, it is very painful," said (Intco, with a little moan. "I hope you have sot it straight," she ridded.

"Nor do I, dear; you'aro quite right. and I only hope Sophy will n^rce with you," raid Enid. At first Sophy wan not at all inclined to do this.

"It is a wimple fracture, of the tibin," said Sophy, as she ushered Dr. May to the patient's room.

"Won't you set it today?" said Sophy. "Oh, dear, no; it ia much too swollen. I shan't be able to set it for somo days. How long are you staying here?" "Oh, we have another nix weeks to stay yet," said Sophy, despondently. "Well, I will (ende'ivor to cure your sister by then; but I fea^nho won't be able to walk for Rome weeks, though you need not tell her so," said Dr. May. No sooner was Dr. May j;ono than Enid, who had not Keen him, dashed into Grace's room, all curiosity. "What in belike, girls?" shodnmandod eagerly. '•He is young," said Sophy, "That is bad," said Enid. "And very bandsomo," twiid Grace. "That is woruo. I wonder if ho is married?" said Enid. "That can't matter to us," said Grace: "Not in tho very least," said Sophy. "Of course not, dears; only I wondered," said Enid. Now it is a strange thing, but lifo became much more interesting to these three young ladies after thin accident; and yet it ought to have east a gloom over them, for it must have been rather a bad case, since Grace, required Dr. May's attendance twice a day for the first week, and three times on the day ho set the tibia and put it into splints.. But before he did this he asked for u second opinion. He was a physician—tho case was surgical; he would not undertake to set the broken bono unless a surgeon were present. So a certain Jlr. Ford, an army surgeon, was called in, not without some scruples; but Dr. May represented it was a necessity, and necessity absolved them from keeping their vow. "Men are a necessary evil," eaid Enid. "They are certainly tisefal." said Sophy. "And undoubtedly nice," said Grace but BOtto voce. She dared not utter this eentiment aloud. Mr. Ford waa a littlo man, who looked to be about 40; fair, and ao fidl of fun that be was a welcome addition to the party. The first week he came twice; after that, though his visits were certainly not of a professional nature, be came every day, and, what was stranger, ho sometimes forgot to goto Grace's room at all, though she was tho ostensible cause of his visits. Grace bore her imprisonment with the patience of a saint. True, her room was a large, airy one, and commanded a lovely view of tho deep blue sea, with the romantic littlo bay at the foot of tho heather clad slope on which tho house stood. Still, one would havo thought she might havo found it dull. On the contrary, her beautiful face wore a hap- gladdened it; weekly Wh) Ht> Uitln't !><KJge.

"And Sophy- will novor forgive you, Ford," s:ud May. The doctors looked' very cast down at this. "Need they evor know the truth?" asked Dr. May. "Not unless you like to tell them; at tho same time, if you could manage to take those splints oft Grace's log tomorrow, wo might have some picnics while I am here; I can only stay a wook. If you two can undertake to manage that I'll undertake not to reveal tho truth with regard to Grace's Kprainod ankle— I beg Sophy's pardon — fractured tibia." On this basis some excursions were inaugurated for the next .few days, the splints wero removed, and the patient, wit.h Dr. May's assistance, managed to get in and out of carriages, ami wander over sandy beaches nnd heather clad cliffs with wonderful craco and case-, The week mado itself wings, it flew so quickly. But art was neglected, sci- enco snubbed and literature forgotten, while the faithless brides caught shrimps and sand eels, scrambled over rocks and lunched, in cavus, drove through shady lanes and rested on inoea clad clilfs, ami were aa happy as mortals could be. At lost tha day of reckoning came. "Sophy," said Grace ono night, "truth ia stranger than fiction." "Yes, dear, I know that." "So I have given up fictidn, I mean literature." "They arenotnlways synonymous, but have you really done EO?" "I have, and, what i;i more, Dr, May has asked me vo marry him, and — and I didn't say no." "Oh, Grace bow dreadful! but it is strange, too, for Ml'. Find asked mo the same question, and I said yes." "Oh, Sophy, and you liavo forsaken science!" "Yea, my lovo lias turned to hatred; I hate science, and I love some one else. Let us go and break it to linid." Accordingly two white robed figures crossed tho l/indiiig to Enid's room. "Enid, we havo something dreadful to confess; we have given up literature and sciouce, wa have broken our vows, and we are engaged to bo ^..vrricd; isn't it terrible?-' ------------ . ......... --------------"Dreadful! { have tlone better than that; Max baa persuaded mo that law and art wero ruad<; for caoli other, that one is nothing without llio other; so. instead of wedding art myself, I am going to unite art to Mas." "And you will be .our sister niter all. Wo are BO glad." Then there was a great iloal t>f kissing. "Good-by to literature! I am happy, und happy women never write," said Grace. "UooJ-by to tcioinx-! I huvu found ti bettor bridegroom," said Sophy. "Au revoir, art! \Vo shall meet again dooii; but, all. tlu< sunn-, girls, we are fotvuvoni." riaiti F.iud.
