ON NINTH AVENUE. "Where a Now York Millionaire Bachelor Pound. Happinesa Mr. Eben Krumble was a man worth knowing 1 . He had attained eminence by forcing- his way into the group of magicians known as millionaires. People doffed their hats to him with a deferential air as he passed; and in social circles the good dames who had daughters for sale wore a smile so genial and warm that even summer clothing- seemed oppressive. They angled for him with the patience of Isaac Walton, who -used to say that no one was a true fisherman who wasn't willing- to sit on the bank of a stream ^intil a spider spun a web from his back to the nearest tree. If Kruajblc was worth knowing- he was also worth catching-, I assure you. 3e had a body which turned the scales it one hundred and eighty, a heart big-jjcr than his body, a couple of brilliant brown cj'Cs, a shock of iron-gray hair, which gave him a leonine appearance, and a mustache which led strans 1 • ers to address him as general At forty-three, the age at which I introduce him, he had skillfully evaded ihe blandishments and dangers of matrimony, and was sole possessor of himself 'in fee simple. He saw the traps which were set for his heart and fortune, especially the latter, and took a fjrim satisfaction in the thought that if he chose to take a wife he had money •enough to support her in good style. .He deliberately concluded, however, 'that it would be better, on the whole, to play the game of life with a lone turned into Twenty-third street, west. . After awhile he fotmd himself on Ninth avenue, and enjoyed a sense of relief that nobody knew him and he knew nobody. A millionaire on Ninth avenue,' with no special business to take him there, is a spectacle not seen every day. Eben was in one of his absent-minded moods; but it wasn't his fault that the accident occurred. Whether he ran into the child, or the child ran into him, is a matter of small moment. The important fact is thafc there was a collision, and, as a result, the little one lay in the gutter, or rather in the mud of the gutter, and yelled most vociferously. Krumble was amascc! at his stupidity. He retired into the inner recesses of h's soul for a moment or two. But like a true, gentleman, he picked the little girl up and stood her on her feet. If we are all made cf dirt, that child had more than her share; enough raw material on her clothes to manufacture a whole family. He coaxed and cajoled, but, my! how that baby screamed. "I hope," he said, turning to the wan- faced woman who was her mother—"I sincerely hope she is not hurt." The poor creature grabbed the child, pressed her to her boson, dirt and all, and with a few magic words brought back the old smile. "There's nothin' the matter widher," she said. "She's got good lungs, anyhow. Sure, it's only fright. A little wather is all she wants, and God knows it's the only thing I can give her." "Pray, where do you reside, my good woman?" asked Eben. "Reside is it?" she answered.' "Well, 3 ben' was a self-made man, and the product of his labor ivas extremely creditable. A great many people who try this experiment are dismal failures. ~Th c .y generally manage to acquire •phenomenal self-conceit, but most of the best qualities of character arc arrested developments. They become pompous, insolent and unendurable. They •would have made good oysters, if they ., had been contented to have remained In that station, as Tony "Weller said to .his son Samivel; but, as the pursc- holders of the community, they are apt to be coarse, showy, ostentatious and hungry for adulation. Money-getting is a noble employment. Everybody wants enough to furnish him with a good roast and a warm blanket in his old ago. That is all that gold or bank bills will properly buy. You can only eat your fill, and one overcoat is enough to keep the •cold out. If a man had a score of mouths and could enjoy eating with each one, or if he had tin; legs of a centipede and needed trousers for them all, the case would be different. Bat with only one mouth and only two legs, he ought to '•be easily satisfied. . Eben took himself by the coat collar, •when he had just turned forty-three, •dragged himself into a corntir of his li- "•Orr.ry, seated himself in an easy chair, ^aud played with two or three logical .propositions. "1 am notquite spending ray income," "lie said to the handsome face which was i-cfleetod in the mirror. "I have half a •xlraylcdd of first mortgage bonds, and 'the interest is paid every six months. I •j;uade it all myself; didn't inherit anything- except some few debts which the •old gentleman left. And," here he "thrust his hands into his pockets with ,-n, self-satisfied air—"and, bless me, I •made it all honestly. Nobody need •-shrug 1 his shoulders at me." Then he got up and stood in front of the glass. "Say, old boy, do you know the largest part of your life is gone, eh?" he inquired. "No wife, but lots -of poor relations, who inquire after ;your health every Christinas and ex- j»ct a good-sized check by return mail. Jf yew should happen to get run over ~iiy a cable car, they'd contest your will, and prove thai you were a blooming idiot who was unduly influenced to leave .your fortune to the wrong •parties. That's about all the recompense •si man gets for dying rich. You'd •'better drop this drudgery and enjoy .yourself." And he did. He played a goodgamo of billiards at -ihe club, and was champion of the whist table. He never dined at home, :Sor splendid story tellers are eagerly sought Ho went to Tuxedo, to Newport and to Lenox, and was the con- •quering- hero of society everywhere. But he wasn't satisfied. JSo man ever ia who hasn't a wife. A wife furnishes !>er husband with enough to occupy all iis spare time. If he is profoundly in Jove with her, and the honeymoon— tvhich is generally leased for six -3ionths with the option of renewal— •continues indefinitely, he has all he can •do to anticipate her wishes, and invent devices to secure her happiness. If, on the other hand, he thinks he has grounds for jealousy, ho is equally busy, though in a different direction. He finds both days and nights too short for worricaent, and sighs, and misery, and suspicions, and other hobgoblins and bugbears which he can call from ±hc vasty deep. But if one isn't married, he has so much leisure on his hands that he be- •oomes embarrassed. That was the case Tvith Krumble. He didn't know what to do, and was so tired of the humdrum •lhai he would have spent a night in a haunted hoxise just for the novelty of the experience. It would have given 2iim something to anticipate and prepare for, and, always provided he scared to death, something to of for a week after. He became frightfully sick of dress suits, and dinings out, and fell into a -sort of melancholy. 'The fellows •chaffed him, and one or two had a -=3erioDS talk with him; but he gradTial- 2y went from pale blue to a deep and hopeless indigo. •One afternoon he felt an impulse to ^jot afroy froxn his kind, -that is from, Ida particular kind. He strolledjdqjra Sifth avenue, lifting his hat foiirtieJMx •tfcnes in • seventeen minu sorr, I'm not bothered much that way. But, bcgg-in' your honor's pardon, me room is on the third back jist round the corner." "If you have no objection, madam," said Eben, courteously, "I will accompany you and sec that the child is all rig-ht." It was an interesting trio. Krnmble did not feel quite at case in his surrounding's, or, in the language of science, ho was not in harmony with his environment. There was a startling contrast between his clothes and those which Mrs. Moloney wore, and between his well-fed appearance and her careworn face. I can't say he enjoyed the interview; but if one is Mssc even a toothache has the magic charm of novelty. When the door of the room was opened, Mrs. Moloney remarked: "The likes of ycz has never come up thim stairs afore; but you're just as welcome as the queen of England would be, and icdade a little more." She'dusted a chair with her r.proa, and Eben tool: it with entire nonchalance and began to make an inventory of the furniture. There was a pine table which had only throe legs, the fourth having dropped through sheer decrepitude. It stood upright, however, for it leaned against the wall. There, were four chairs, which wouldn't have brought at auction a dime apiece. The floor was wholly innocent of a carpet, but scrupulously clean. "Oh, ho," said Eben to himself, "I know now why I wanted to be worth a million. Life in such a place as this would be worse than death. Ho carpet! That last rug of mine cost four hundred and fifty. A twenty-five cent chromo on the wall! Why, I have an Appleton, Brown and a Dewey worth enough to run this little household for ten years. Either I'm mighty lucky, or Mrs. Moloney is particularly un- •fnrfnntrf/a " ' fortunate. His reverie was interrupted. "When Pat was carried to the cimc- tery," said the woman, "I moved into wan room. Arrah, but thim was hanpy days, before Pat died." "How did it happen?" asked Krumble, sympathetically. : "Slowed up! At three o'clock in the afternoon he was at the works. Ten minutes later he was on his way to Hiven. An' when they brought home what was left of him, me heart died widin me, an' I've had a sorry time since. "Pat," she continued, "was a good pervidcr. He was that, savin' your prisence. Mcny's the time of a Saturday night he'd say to me: 'Bridget,' says he. " 'What do ye want. Pat?' says L " 'Take the big basket on your arm,' says he, 'an' we'll go down to Washington market I got to feed ye well,' says Pat, 'or ye won'tkapeyourgoodlooks.' He was always. a-flatterin' of me," and the woman's lips trembled. - "Yis, Pat and me'd bring home a fine bone for a stew, and an illigant cabbage or two. Ah, thim were great days for me. Often's the time I've said: 'Bridget Moloney, it isn't every woman as has a man like that.'" "And it's not every Pat," interjected Eben, who had become "interested, "that has a Bridget like you." "Your honor's foolin' wid me," was the reply. "But I kept the house clane, if 1 do say it meseli. 1 darned his stockin's and put as neat a patch on his trouser knees as the best of 'em could; an' as for coolrin' I wasn't to be bate on any floor of the house. Thim days is a long way behind me now. I haven't had me mouth full since Pat died, an' me teeth has got loose, they've so little to do." Her tongue -was a bit loosened also, as she added, philosophically: "In thim days I was treated respectful, an' they spoke of me as Pat Moloney's wife, which was enough for. any woman to ashpire to. An' whin they, met me in the street wid me foine clothes on, it was: 'Misthress Moloney, God bless ye! How do ye do? 1 But now 1 am called, indifferent like, the Widdy iloloney" an' all because there's no Pat on the primises. It's a qnare wiirola! It is that!" During this conversation Mrs, Moloney was scrubbing the face of her child. The little one's tears had-dried, and her eyes were full of laughter. "Good Heavens! I believe that baby's really; happy," tuonjrht Eben. "Myste- but true. .Nothing to be happy .for, but still happy," * "Hadn't you better take her dress off and put on another?" suggested Krnmble. Mrs. Moloney looked at him inatur- ingly. She was unwilling to confess ;hat that was the only garment the child had, so she answered evasively: "She might catch cold if I changed of a sudden, like that Whin I git her under the bedclothes to-night I'll T3ut the dress in a tub and give it a soak- in'." "But., it's chilly here," continued Eben. "You should light a fire and at least keep her warm." "Sorra a coal is there in the house," was the reply. "Me front neighbor borricd the last shovelful." Eben saw it all at last. No coal, no food, no dress for the child. Not a ray of sunshine stole through the window. A drooping plant, which couldn't eat anything and was therefore welcome, was the only bit of real comfort in the room. "I can't stand this,-" said Eben to himself. "What's the use of baring- mortgage bonds if I cac't buy a peck of potatoes?" So he said: "Mrs. Moloney, I'm going round to the grocers and will be back again in half an hour." For some reason or other Eben had worked himself into an unusually happy mood. Not for months had he been as cheerful as then. When he groped his •way down the dark staircase his heart was so light that he began to hum a familiar air, and by the time he reached the sidewalk he was whistling like a boy. A little youngster rind his sister stared at him and Eben thrust his hand in his pocket and drew out a couolc of nickels, ."I'm going to do this job," he said, "according to Hoyle. Here, rny boy, don't you want some apples?" The little chap hung- his head shyly, but the girl looked at him with her great round eyes, thinking, perhaps, that he was Santa Claus, and answered, as she held out her tiny hands, both of them: "Yes, sir;" In another minute they had scampered across the street aud were busily engaged in a dicker with the apple woman, "It doesn't take much to brighten the life of children," thought Eben, as he watched them. "Two nickels, and for ten minutes they are in Paradise. Bless me, I wish I could run like that. But this cursed gout is too much for me." When he reached the grocer's he had a list of purchases already in his mind. "I want a sack of coal, and four bundles of kindlings," he began. "By the way, you'd better take down my order, for I want a good many other things And can you send them round the corner at once? I'm in a hurry." "How soon?" asked the man. "Within a quarter of an hour," was his answer. "Just as soon as you can- get them there." The man nodded, and then wet his lead pencil in his mouth. A bag of coal, four bundles of kindlings, half a bushel of potatoes, a pound of tea, three pounds of'sugar, two loaves of bread, ten pounds Indian meal, three pounds pork—and so the list increased until it filled a page of the note-book. "Whereto?" asked the storekeeper. "The widow Maloney's," was the answer. "Ail right, sir. Seven dollars and twenty-three cents." In half an hour all this wealth had been safely deposited o:a the floor of Mrs. Moloney's room. And when Eben returned to see that his order had been properly carried out, he found the woman sitting on the edge of a.chair, her head buried in her gingham apron. She was swaying to and fro, and sobbing like a child. At his entrance she looked up, and, as he said afterward, there was an expression of gratitude in her face which was almost too much for him. "The Holy Mother protect ye!" she cried. "I niver expected to see this day. Ye remind me, so ye do, of my Pat" The child was munching a big slice of bread, and in an ecstasy of delight shouted: "Papa!" "Well," thought Eben, "I must draw the line there. I am willing to have the old woman liken me to her red- haired husband, but I object to the papa business." Krnmble walked home that afternoon with a light, elastic step. As he stood before the glass to arrange his cravat, he surveyed himself in his dress suit and remarked: "Eben, my boy, you are rather a good-looking- fellow." When his toilet was completed he actually took a dozen steps of a dance about the room. "Hullo, Eben, what's the matter with you?" he said. "Are you growing yonng again? You seem to feel particularly jolly. I wonder why?"—George Hepworth, in N. Y. Independent A SCHOOL-ROOM CHAMPION. He Came to the Pretty Teacher's Aid and Thrashed the Bully. It was a pretty tough crowd of bovs that attended the white schoolhouse at Farnsworth Corners in the winter time. I was a fair sample, and I was such a bad boy that I had been sent aivay from home and placed in care of mv uncle at the Corners bscause father couldn't manage me. By dint of repeated strappings Uncle George kept me in respectable bounds and got a good deal of work out of me around the farm. I must have been about fifteen years old the winter that Miss Angie Arnold came to teach in that district As I think of it now I realize that she must have been a pretty little thing with her big blue eyes and wavy brown hair. But we farmer boys had no regard for beauty, and the trouble we made that poor young thing was scandalous, She had b(?en educated at a normal school somewhere in the central part of Illinois, and, to tell the truth, she did go at us boj-.s in a theoretical sort of a way. The boys -seemed to get the idea the first day of school that it would be an easy matter to run things that winter. The boys always had run the school, especially Rodney Blakesley, whom we called "liod" for short. It wasn't many weeks before the poor girl had lost all control of the school, and "Rod" Blakesley was practically master of the situation. The only fellow among us that did not seem enthusiastic over the fun was Newton Ellis. We called - him "Newt" for short. "Newt" had said once or twice, that he thought the boys were carrying the thing too far. One noon "Rod" slipped into the school room while Miss Arnold was out and wrote some lines on the blackboard that were decidedly out of place, to say the least. , After school had been called Miss Arnold looked appealingly at "Rod" and asked him if he wrote the stuff on the board. There was no use in his denying it, for his long, scrawly hand was unmistakable. "Yes," yelled "Rod," "I put it on the board, E.nd I ain't afraid of it, nuther." "Will you go and rub it out?" "No, I won't" The little teacher sat down by her desk. She hid her face in her hands and burst into tears. Meanwhile no one had been taking notice of "Newt"' Ellis. His seat was on the last row, back of Rod's. Instantly Newt jumped from his seat, took Rod by the collar and threw him onto the floor. Everybody in the room was terrified, for "Rod" Blakesley was the bully of the school. Rod got up quickly and made for "Newt" Newt was not as big as Rod, but he was well knit, and, to the surprise of us all, Rod got the worst of it. He ran out of the door thoroughly whipped and with the origin on his face of what turned oui next morning to be two big black eyes. There was no more school that day aud no more trouble the rest of the year. Rod's father took him out of school and set him to work on the farm. It wasn't the last we had to hear of Newt Ellis. I guess it couldn't have bsen mcra than three years later that Newt and the little school teacher were married. That is the only romance Farnsworth's Corners ever had. To-day Newt Ellis is numbered among the "well fixed" farmers of that section.— Chicago Tribune.

A hot contest was about to take place years ago in a country town, the candidates being- a legitimist, an Orleanist, and a republican. One Saturday morning- people ran up to the •wife of the Orleanist politician with, the exclamation that "All was lost!" as the legitimist rival,was going to present every poor member of the congregation with a four-pound loaf after divine service the following day. The lady reflected a moment and then said that she would be equal to the occasion. She kept her word. As the people filed out of the church on a Sunday morning the legitimist candidate distributed his bread; but, posted on the other side of the door, the Orleanist's wife presented to the recipients of-the four-pound loaves a pat of butter or a pot of jam. As it turned out the wily republican carried the day after all- He happened to be a dealer in wines, and sending round a bottle to every poor elector he distanced ><fc opponents and triumphantly headed the polls.— London Telegraph. —The girl of tho period really may Be versed in grammatical laws, But all who know her regret to say She never conies to a pause. —N.
