So much had to be talked of, so many questions asked aud answered that it was far past bedtime before any reference was made to the business which bad brought me. "We have said nothing about tho Bubjec' of my letter, Andrew," said my fathei looking at ine wistfully, "because yoi must be fatigued, but when breakfast is over tomorrow wo 'will, by the grace o heaven, have the matter discussed and set tied. •-'' "Very well, sir," I answered, "I shal hold myself ready at your convenience." ' Both he and my mother smiled approv jly at this, and having seen me to mj ibtunberand assured themselves that al \ was comfortable they left rue. I said I was ready, but it -was with tht readiness of the criminal who finds pun ishment inevitable and desires to have i over as quickly as may be. Though I was weary, I could not sleep. My brain throbbei like a f urnace and every nerve was a-qulvev Among other scenes I might have arguet myself into'the solacing conviction that i was but an innocent cause of the disappointment that on the morrow must over whelm my father and mother, but amu the old surroundings, with their eloquert tokens of affection, the sense of folly am •disobedience was maddening. At times! could have risen and rushed from thi house; then again I felt as if I must go to my father aud have the miserable business ended at once. The more I thought the more terrible my guilt appeared. Fortu nately even remorse has its limits, and at last I dozed. I awokoin the morning with a queer idea j-of having been traveling in a foreign latic | and went to meet my father in a haze 01 \ uncertainty. He was all affection, a cir;<cu instance that added to my embarrass- tneut. A further cause of embarrassment was that he introduced the business of my visit as if already settled except in details "You see, Andrew," he said, "the la« .has many advantages. It is a money mak business and enables a uum to fight for his own band in a way that rogues cannot well withstand. As I hinted to you in my letter, these considerations are not indif ferent to us at the present time. To speak as between ourselves, there are some .despoiling us who have no moral, nor, as 1 think, you can show, legal right, to one far thing of our money. They rob us because there IB UOJIB.IO checkmate them. But, 1 have strong hope that tho tables will speedily be turned, and that tho latest heir to Kl. 1 burole will bj able to give these vultures the right about in a fashion that will ustou ish them." Here my father rose and paced tho room in great exultation. "And, eh, it would plcaso mo more thnn words can tell to Bee these ravening sharks r>! tho seed of Israel •and tue descendants of Ananias—by which 1 mean the Jews and lawyers—well tilted in their own tourney. Anil, Andrew, you're -the man to do it." My tongue clove to tlio roof of iny mouth .at this speed!, uml I !:ttew not where to look from tln> fitter i.'isconcorting eyes of both uiy father anil i.,y mother. "I am exceedingly sorry, sir, to learn of '•the embarrassed KluUt of our affairs," I faltered, with my eyes on thu ground. "Yes, Andruw," put In my father quickly, "we uro umburratttti'd, fearfully embarrassed, but our fortunes may bo restored quicker than we think." Anil the dear soul In his confidoucu camu forward, took my baud ami looked in my face In a way thut stabbed me tn the marrow. "I would do all 1 can for tho family credit," I said. "The right sentiment, Andrew, If rather bnltlngly spoken," mild my fiahtir, with an encouraging pressure of the hand. "Como, my boy, give your courage tongue. I know .it Is in your heart, to hul|> UK—aye, and in yo'arheud too. You will bu as cunning ivjuwyeras the bust Of them. Yon will—I know you will. This Is only tho bluteness of a boy." "There is no sacrifice In the world that I wouldn't make, sir," I responded, "but"— (iiul therol stuck with my tongue paralyzed. My father stored at me foi 1 u second or so, i lien lie dropped my hand, and bis brow concentrated. The crisis hod corns; the evil I bad teured wan upon me. "That word soumU strange In my cars, .Andrew," ho said, with u strain of harshness in hUvoict). "When 1 proposed tlin law, (did not anticipate any talk about «*o riflces." "Oh, sir," J bluruitl out, with a frantloda- •ire to praolpiuto maiturs, "1 wish 1 could tell you In u word what 1 buvo to suy. I cannot do ac you wish." I would have ((one on, but th* look bugiivomu brought 0)0 to a sadden uml ill-mi halt. "You caimoti doun 1 wish I" he erludln tones of mingled uugur uml uurprlse. "Indeed, IndoL'il, luduudl You cannot do as I Wlshl Tuut Is very pretty, vui'y dutiful. Youoaunot do us 1 wish I" Audhekupt on repeating tho words, giving them u false meaning, whlim I wan powerless to sot right. "But maybe I do you wrong," lie said abruptly. "No doubt you have u first ralu proposal of your own to make." I faltered that I Imdu't und held my breath for the effect. It won ol«ctrla. With •u eiierjjy I bad never seen in him buforu my father sprung to his fcut und huguu to stride-about the room, or rutbttr to stamp, his fuoo like a thundercloud, uls breathing aMorlw of angry snorts. As I stood ritmk- ing In every nbor, my mother gave me a look wltiou Mtuuiod to sayi "My dear, uu- fortunate boy, what does all this meuuf Have you taken luuvu of your neususr" "I can suui'culy believe my ears," cried toy tether whuu he had got over the first vpasw of, rage. "I doubt my very senses. A sou of mine telling me. In the very ui'lsiu of foj'tuuu, he cannot do as I wish—eaimot do as I wlshl l)ld ears of man ever hear tile Ilka of that! 1 'J uauuot do us you wish,' •ays the beard less Solomon tu the'foolish That's good.

By my faith, Wallace Kil gour will bear no Mich language aa that in hiHown housel" "Do not agitate yourself so," pleaded m; mother. "Andrew means no disobedience I'm sure, You haven'tgiven him a chance to explain himself." "To be sure, to be snre," said my father "we have not heard his explanations. I'l warrant they're very ingenious and con vincing, coming direct, us they do, from thut nest 'of Jesuits, the College of Edln burgh." Then alter a turn ortwornor about the room he threw himself Into chair. Thinking that now was my chanc to speak, I began very humbly. "If you listen, sir, I'll try." "Listeul" he thundered, jumping to hi feet as if 1 had offered a deadly Insult "Listen to you? No, the listening shall b on the other side. And this is what I have to say: That you shall obey me without trou bllng about explanations or yon shall leav my bouse. It is mine as ytt, and I will b master in it." "I only wanted to tell you," I venturec again. But he would not hear me. "If you attempt to argue with me, ou you go," he said peremptorily. Andl verily believe he would forthwith have thrust me from the house bad not hi attention been arrested by a knock at th outer, or hall, door, aloud, imperious knoci that seemed to announce a person of iin portance. Tho next minute the door ot ou apartment was opened and iu walked my bumptious traveling companion of the pre- In walked my bumptious traveling companion at the preceding day. ceding day. He was all smirks and smiles now, presenting, as he reared his portlj figure and looked about him, the very cm bodiment of good nature. My father, beini taken by surprise in the midst of his pas sion, stared for a moment without a wort of welcome or recognition. Then suddenl; he cried, "Thomas Clcphane, by all that' wonderful!" 1 "Troth, just the same, cousin," returned thejrlsitor, complacently taking my father' outstretched hand, "and «lad to seeyot hale and well, though, to say the truth, a weo thought ruffled about tho comb, no to speak. And this is uiy Cousin Janet, no doubt." beaming upon my mother and ex tending his hand, "I am glad to make yom acquaintance, cousin, and gratified to fine you well. Many a time have I thought o you all; many a time"—then spying me "Ah, whom have wo here? A familiar face surely.

"I'm for the law part ly because 1 terhembcr your own prosper! ty, cousin, and he's—well, he's against it.' "H'm, hal" said Mr. Clepbane, stroking his welt nourished chin. "Dear me, that'; unfortunate, and yet it would never do foi us all to be of the same mind. There art many ways of making a living, cousin, ant the laddie has his own tastes nae doot. A: to the law, it's with it as with many an other thing, those like it best who know least about it. At the best it's a slipper; game, in which ten fall for one who keeps his feet. 1 have spracklod through—I'll uo deny it, but wi' theskin o' my teeth, as-the man of Ug says. I'm not sure I'd advise another fellow to follow in my steps. Bu dlnna let me interfere; dinna let me come between father and sou." Whereupon Mr Glephane rubbed his hands, thus figuratively washing them of the whole business and the subject of talk waa changed. When highland hospitalities had beet dispensed, Mr. Clephane and my father went out for a walk, leaving me behind I was not sorry, since their absence gave me an opportunity of speaking with my mother, who, good soul, waa ever wlllinf to take my part. I told her my whole ator; unreservedly, and she sympathized as onl; a mother can. I also told her the hlstor; of my relations with Peter, which startlec and surprised her. "It is-a shame, Andrew," she said, with the tears gleaming In her dear eyes, "bu Mr. Clcphane probably knows nothing o Peter's behavior, and at any rate for you father's sake we must uphold the honor o Kilburnlo. It must not be said be eam< here and was ill received." And then with many a caress she tolc me she quite understood my unhappy posi tion, and that she would do what she could to re-establish me in my father's favor, could see, however, that the loyal hear was deeply troubled. She would fain hav seen me obey, while pledging her word as partisan. My blessings on her memory. As fate would have it, when my fathe and his visitor returned they were uccom panied by a neighboring laird, Sir Thoma Gordon of The Elms, of whom the reade has already casually beard from mine hos of the Hound and Stag. Meeting the baronet in the course of their walk, my father with the impulsive generosity which hac wrought such trouble to his house, insistec ou taking him home for luncheon regarc less of domestic convenience or resource But my mother was right glad to see Si Thomas aud he iu turn was glad to sc her, declaring in his fine old fashioned mat ner it did his heart good just to cross th threshold of Kilburuie. Sir Thomas, my mother had told me, a ways gave her tho impression that he wa extremely lonely. He might have bee happy as the world goes. A retired Anglo Indian official, he.was wealthy, and thoug a widower, be had the companionship of devoted daughter whose equal in beaut and goodness has not breathed sinco Ev left paradise. But these blessings wer mysteriously counterbalanced. There wa -a break in bis health, and—one could see i plainly—a break in his heart, two evils fo which money is no medicine, and whic even filial devotion can hardly do mor than alleviate. Sir Thomas had both seen aud done great deal in times that history now call stirring. He had been a prominent acto in more than one memorable and excittaj. sceua He bod fought a valiant battle, am victory had crowned bis exertions. Yet h had a skeleton in the cupboard. He sigheu often, and his habitual look was downcast. But be was not of those who parade the! woes. In company he was cheerful iu t subdued way aud always gentle and con siderato. Much knowledge of men am their imperfections bad not hardened biiu and bitter experiences had but saddened not soured, bis sweet spirit. Nor had year of authority and much honor destroyed hi childlike simplicity. I hoped that luncheon would pass with out reference being made to what had brought me home, but in that I was dis appointed, for the matter lay too near my father's heart to be kept out of bis couvcr sation. Sir Thomas was told of the plum that bad been made for me, aud how foi some unaccountable reason I was bent on spoiling them. "We must not be angry or disappointed if youth docs not see with the eyes of age,' said Sir Thomas graciously, lookiug at me. "Morning uud evening have differeni lights. Mr. Andrew has tho fresh vision and quick intelligence of his titnu uf lif u , They are not to be despised. At the same time I am sure he will consider soberly ant not underestimate the importance of the decision be is called on to make.

HIS LINE OF DEFENSE A MYSTERY Will Do Solved In a Few D»y»—TlJe Colonel to Bo the First WitncM In His Own Behalf—Trial Will Continue Two Weeks—Wins Pollard's Cross Examination V' 11 ' Last Two l)nj-s. WASHINGTON, March Itf.—The legal complications and moral side issues of the Breckinridge case which are generally corning to light as the trial progresses increase the public interest here In Washington where the Kentucky man is best known and make the most sensational scandal ever reviewed in the criminal courts here. Curiosity is rampant among lawyers as to the line of defense which the array of five lawyers retained by the congressman have marked out for him.'JjFor a time after the revelation of the secret marriage of Colonel Breckinridge to Mrs. Wing in New York, on April 29, was made public, it was the general opinion this circumstance would form the basis of the defense, but since the attorneys for Mr. Breckiuridge have intimated to the contrary. Even had they not said so, it is a fact after all, the promise of marriage alleged to have been made to her, except the statements in tho presence of Major Moore, were before the date'of the clandestine marriage. M.v tcry of the Defense. Moreover it seems to be established by a preponderance of authorities that the promise to marry Madeline by a married man furnishes grounds for a breach of promise action iu case it is accepted in good faith by the other party, who is ignorant of his legal disability to fullfl: the contract. The mystery of the defense of the defendant will be solved in a few days, however, for it is the present intention to place Colonel Breckinridge on the witness stand as the firs' witness in his own behalf. It is evident his attorneys place their principal reli ance upon the story which he will tel and from their sangilliie state of mind, it seems probable that they must have ir reserve resources which have not ye; been known. Brculiinrldge's Story Will Bo Long. That Colonel Breckhmdge's recita. •will bo a long one was foretold by one o: his attorneys when he said the defendant would be on the stand three days. This attorney prophesied the trial will continue for two weeks or maybe longer. He said the cross-examination of Miss Pollard would consume two days more, that Breckinridge would be on- the stand three days, that two days would be occupied in reading depositions for the defense and three days in closing oratory for the ears of the jury. From this statement, it appears the defense expects to probe into the circumstances surrounding Miss Pollard's life in much greater detail than was indicated by the commencement of the cross-examination by Mr. Butterworth. That part of Washington which enjoys n sensation, and it is a large one, ia anticipating eagerly the cross-examination of the silver haired defendant by Attorneys Wilson and Carlisle. UNION PACIFIC CONFERENCE. Poor Prospects For a Settlement of tho Wage Question Oulntdu of Court. OMAHA, March lit.—There is now some prospect that the Union Pacific wage conference will end in wind. There have como up differences between the men and the receivers that now seem likely to end the matter. The telegraphers, whoso case was taken under consideration first, contended unsuccessfully that they were not to bo classed as monthly salaried men, but should be given a schedule of hours with pay for overtime and extra work. They havo closed their case with u good record to go to court on, but without imy result otherwise. One o.t the leaders said tho men and Mr. Clnrk might as well go homo, for there would bo no result reached outside of court. Fire tit Kl Dora. EL DOUA, Iu., March 10.—A tiro, originating in F. A.

Stolidity PonrlMfr Into Hie Great South D»- kotn Artesian Uiisln. ATCHISON, Kan., March 19.—The United States engineering department has just completed a survey of the Uppei Missouri river and as far down as this point. In the opinion of the engineers the Missouri river is dwindling away and will in time become a small stream. They found that the volume of water at Great Fulls, Mon., measured 4,790 cubic feet per second, while at Fort Beuton, 25 miles further down the river, the volume was but 4,331 cubic feet per second—o decrease of 48b cubic feet. This, they claim, explains the presence of the great subterranean body of watei known as the South Dakota Artesian Basin. The discrepancy is accounted fot by an outlet in the bed of the river somewhere between the points mentioned. These engineers state that eyeless fish have been discovered in the above locality, such as inhabit subterranean streams. In 1878 similar observations as to tho volume of water were taken by the department, and since that time there has been a decrease of fully 20 per cent in the volume of water in the river. AN ENGLISHMAN SEEKS PROTECTION. Asks Aid From Knglnnil to Take a Nonunion Mtm's Job 3n Ohio. EAST LIVERPOOL. O.. March ID.— Elijah Harrison, a nonunion workman who took the place of one of the striking potters nt the East Liverpool pottery, has created a furore in later circles here by appealing to the British government for protection against the strikers. Harrison recently came here from England and is still a British subject. He wrote to the British ambassador at Washington demanding protection as an English citizen and alleged that tho city police had refused to give him tho protection guaranteed by law. He has received a letter from Secretary Johnston of the British embassy in Washington stating that the ambassador had taken cognizance of his case. The letter directs him to make a formal demand for protection of the local police at police headquarters and then produce his documents. He WRS promised protection. In Phllsulelphln. PHILADELPHIA, March 18.— W. J. Byrne, the recruiting officer of the in dustrial army of Los Angeles, presentee his credentials to General Bccretarj Hayes of the Knights of Labor. Director of Public Safety Butler said: ''Byrne has come to the worst city in the country to start an agitation. I do not believe our unemployed people are in sympathy with such a movement. Byrne will be watched closely and we wil know just what he is doing. The minute he does an illegal act we will give him the same treatment we gave Emma Goldman." _ Not Heard of at Louisville. LOUISVILLE, March 19.— If Mrs. Breckinridge intends instituting divorce proceedings against her husband, tho defendant in Miss Pollard's breach of promise suit, the fact is unknown to her relatives in this city. A reporter visited the home of Dr. Scott and his inquiries elicited the information that tho family here know nothing of Mrs. Breckinridge's alleged intention to sue for divorce. _ Midwinter Knir Attendance. SAN FRANCISCO, March 19.— The total attendance at the Midwinter fair Saturday wns 00,44-1, being greater than any other day since the opening, when it was above 7X',000.
