She was bbing 1 , and frying 1 in a voice full of Jstrcss: !S>»~^ j"Oh! papa, papa, I had te\^5fTot him, id I'm so afraid I hurt him!

JfJut before another word was spoken, lorgc Llewellyn's arm had dropped Ihis side, and he stood staring in bc- lldcrmcnt, first at the old man, and pn at his daughter, for if he had doubted the possibility jvt the .beautiful, smiling girl could Ian accomplice of thieves, how could (harbor a suspicion about the stout lorly 'gentleman, with the gold ctacles and the stamp of liritish re- Ictability on every homely feature?

"Well, lie won't die of it," answered tht doctor, with a twinkle in his eye. Ueorgc was so much excited and re- l.'eved l)3 r ' the discovery he had jtisl made that he answered in atone which showed him to be in tlie best of spirits: "ll's nothing at all; it's a mere scratch. Miss Lowe. Please don't make yourself unhappy." The girl turned slowly round, reveal ing a most woc-begoue and grief- stricken countenance. She looked anxiously at her father, and seeing by the expression of his face that she had really not clone much harm, she began to dry her tears, although she still carefully avoided meeting Llewellyn's eyes, "My dear," said Dr. Lowe, "go into the surgery and get me the box where 1 keep my bandages. I can finish this business here, for it won't take me a minute, and it's cold in there." As soon as his daughter had left the room, the old doctor burst into a fit ol laughter. "I shall break her heart if she hears me laughing," said he, wiping his eyes. "Just now when 1 came in, by the back way, as I usually do at night, I found her'waiting for me, waving a black bag in triumph over my head,'and telling me she had caught a thief. And sha was so proud, poor child, of having inveigled you in here, and detained you so long. She said she was in an agony of fear, lest I should be late, and you would get away, bag and all." "But." asked George, when tho doctor had finished another roar of laughter, "what made her take me for a thief? Surely a man may carry'a bag without any dishonest intention?" "She's an operator at the telegraph office, and she was at the instrument .when a. message came through to say that two thieves with stolen securities were coming down." George stared for a moment in silence at tho doctor, and then began to'laugh. It was annoying to have gone through all the revulsions of feeling of the past hour for nothing, as it were. "liut what made her decide that 1 must be the thief?" asked he. "Well, she met a policeman on her way home, who told her that tho thieves had been seen to come in this direction." Then George put a practical question which betrayed the interest he felt in his fair captor: "And do you letthat young girl walk homo by herself late at night over this wild country?" The doctor shrugged his shoulders. "She's as self-willed as ever she can bo. In fact, she's getting too much for me," said Dr. Lowe, with a sigh, "I meet her in the town when I can and bring her home. But thn gypsy won't wait for me. and she carries a revolver, as you have reason to know. Here she comes again. For goodness' sake say something to her so that she may not see mo laughing!" Fortunately for cverj'body in the rather strained state of affairs, a violent ringing and knocking at the front door startled them all, nnd diverted attention from the awkward occurrence. Miss Lowe ran to the outer door, for the one servant had long since gone to bed; and when she recntcrcd the dining-room it was with a policeman. •woman wlio had accompanied nlm down in the train, he explained that ho and she had parted on finding themselves pursued and that she had made for the village of St. Placid's. George Llewellyn remained at the doctor's house that night; and. although tiiere was a shyness between Lily, tlie daughter, and himself, he had a very pleasant chat with his host, who explained that they had left bis old house in the village for the one -which they now inhabited. And the shyness between the young people wore off before Oeonre u-pnt away on t,ue loiiowing uay, for tnls lil- tle bit of dialogue passed between tlicm: "It was very stupid of me not to recognize you."

There being some seventy million dollars involved and the contest seeming to have aroused the whole state of California, the magnitude of the controversy can be judged. It is stated, on the street by New Yorkers who are in n position to know that Mr. Uunting- ton will be able to command the support of the Empire state in his fight against the interests in opposition to him, but that seems a radical assertion, since it is known that lluntington is not personally popular with political magnates in New York. One rumor that has lately been attracting considerable attention is to the effect that Russell Sage has promised his aid to -[luntington and that through Sage the metropolitan bankers will employ their influence in aid of the refunding bill. Uut in the ' face of this report is the fact that many bankers are hotly opposed to Ountington and | the Pacific interests. It appears, furthermore, that the New York delegation in congress has been sounded and that they are to a man in favor of dealing with this railroad debt matter in no I'jnicnt way so far n.s concerns Dunt- iagton. It is an odd circumstance that the origin of riuntington's pei-sonal un popularity, which is said to be costing him powerful support in New York, is ascribed to the hauteur of his daughter shortly after her arrival with her priuce of a husband. She looked down upon the ordinary financiers' families and in oue case indicted a severe snub. The wom- 2a remember the occasion, and it is noteworthy that the influence now striving to undo HuDtingtou is largely feminine. The contest promises to involve social as well as financial interests and to become one of the most famous episodes in our history. It is well- known in society that Miss Huntington look groat pride in the coat of arms that somebody contrived for her, and Dovv'thc snubbed society contingent are whispering that the broom ( and pail and a.x of Iluntington's early days would be more appropriate. This is because of assertions that if limiting- Ion loses his present fight he may have to begin life all over again. some suspicious characters into the guild who. according to the *pi ri I u a 1 i sts, standing, nre using the faith of many t o e o i n cnoncy for thein- selves. It seems that when the spiritual i sts of AT A SKA MCE. the southern cities, or rather the alleged .spiritualists, were driven awav Ijv I ho police 1 , iliov settled themselves in the metropolis in iarge numbers, opening seance estab- tablishments and arrangements of that sort. Pretty soon they had succeeded in imposing upon large numbers of the credulous until a well- known Brooklyn judge, who himself has faith in spiritualism, organized a crusade against them. A . party was made up to expose the leading frauds, and one night the spirit of some ancient Greek, masquerading as half man and half horse, was seized during a seance and proved to be the brother of one of the leading swindlers. Oddly enough, this did not interfere with the prosperity of the duper, for he ran his establishment as audaciously as ever. Hence the present movement among the more prominent of the spiritualists to save their cult from the misrepresentation and odium of these impostors. It is proposed to appeal to the police to begin an active crusade against these gentry, but it is said that some legal technicality conneuted with the principle. of freedom of worship prevents this. . For some reason or other New York is just now infested with bogus spirit mediums, and the competition among them has brought about the cry for reform. for Infants and Children.

Particularly is this the case in Italy, where Rome has the largest and wealthiest American colony of any city in the world. Rome, loo, is the city in which the American colony is perpetually in dissensions ol' one kind and another. These dissensions were positive wars at the time of William Waldorf Astor's ministry there. Tho cause of the general home coming is said to be a sudden change in the fashion of living away from one's own country. Thfs movement first affected the Russians and finally worked its way through nationalities until any family long expatriated became positively an object of suspicion. Hence many Americans of wealth have been obliged" to announce a temporary return to their native land out of sheer necessity to maintain their social position. Many and strange will be the new faces in New York. Philadelphia, ioston and the southern cities. The dread of those who know of these impending home comings is that tho Americans from foreign lands will look down upon their stay-at-home neighbors, like the half American young ivooan who invaded the reading circle at Boston and hurled all its books scornfully to the floor, declaring that she would show society how they got rid of time in "Yewrup."
