•HIPS THAIPASS IN THE NIGHT. B; BEATRICE HAEBADEK. • CHAPTEtt Xt 11 IF ONE HAS MADE TilE ONE GREAT BACRt- I FICE." ' There was a suicldo In the Kurhaus one afternoon. A Dutchman, Vandervelt, had Woeived rather a bad account of himself from the doctor a few days previously, and ( In a fit of depression, so It was thought, he had put a bullet through his head. It had occurred throxigh Mario's unconscious agency. She found him lying on his sofa When she went as usual, to take him hla afternoon glass of milk. He asked her to giro him a packet Which was on the top •helf of his cupboard. "Willingly," she said, and she jumped nimbly on the chair and gave him the cose. "Anything more?" she asked kindly as •ho watched him draw himself up from the •ofa. She thought at the time that he looked wild and strange. But then, as she pathetically said afterward, who did not look wild and strange In tho Kurliausf iiVo> ii !•<> mild. "Hero are 6 francs for disappointment to have brougft* any one to a miserable state of Indifference like that, then she looked at Ills watt, face and frail form, and her heart softened at once. At the moment when her heart softened to him he astonished her by handtag her his he Yea," he said. you." She thought that rather unusual, too, but 5 francs, especially coining unexpectedly like that, were not to bo despised, and Marie determined to send them off to that mutterll at homo In tho nut brown chalet at Grusch. , So she thanked Mynheer van Vander- Telt and wont off to tho pantry to drink •omo cold tea which tho English people hod left and to clean the lamps. Having done that and knowing, that the matron •was busily engaged carrying on a flirtation with a young Frenchman, Mario took out her writing materials and began a letter to her old mother. Those peasants know how to love each other, and some of them know how to tell each other too. Mario knew. And she told her mother of the gifts she was bringing homo, the little nothings given her by tho guests. She was very happy writing this letter. The little nut brown homo rose before her. "Ach," she said, "how I long to be homo!" And then she put down her pen and sighed. "Ach," she said, "and when I'm there I shall long to bo hero. Da wo Ich nlcht bin, dalstdasglnck." Mario was something of a philosopher. Suddenly she heard tho report of a pistol, followed by a second report. She dashed out of her little pantry and ran in the direction of the sound. She saw Warll in the passage. Ho was looking scared, and his letters had fallen to the ground. He pointed to No. 54. • It was the Dutchman's room. Help arrived. The door was forced open, and Vanderveltwos found dead. Tho case from which he had taken tho pistol was lying on the sofa. When Marie saw that, •ho know that she had boon an unconscious accomplice. Her tender heart overflowed with grief. While others were lift- Ing him up she leaned her head against the wall and sobbed. "It was my fault; It was my fault!" she cried. "I gave him the case. But how was I to know?" They took her away and tried to comfort her, but It was all in vain. "And ho gave ino 5 francs, " she sobbed. "I shudder to think of them." , It was all In vain that Warll gave her a letter for which she had been longing for many days. "It is from your mutterll," he said ai he put It Into her hands. "I ttlvo it will- Ingly. I don't like the looks of one or two of tho letters I have to give you, Marie' Chen. That Hans writes to you. • Confound him!" But nothing could cheer her. Warll went away shaking his curly head sadly, •hocked at the death of the Dutchman and •hocked at Marie's Borrow. And tho cheery little postman did not do much whistling that evening. , Bernardino heard of Mario's trouble and rang for her to cuiuo. Marlu answered tho bell, looking tho picture of misery. Her kind face was tear stained, and her only voice was a sob. Bernardino drew the'glrl to her. "Poor old Marie, "she whispered. "Como . and cry your kind heart out, and then you will fool bettor. Sit by me h»ro and don't try to apeak. And I will make you •omo tea in true English fashion, and you muat take It hot, and It will do you good. ' ' \ The simple sisterly kindness and silent sympathy soothed Murlo of tor a time. The sobs ceased and tho tears also. And Marie put her hand in her pookot and gave Bernardino the 6 franca. "Frauluin Holme, I hato them," she said. "I could never keep them. How could I send them now to my old mother F They would bring her ill luck — indeed they would." The mutter was solved by Bernardino In a masterly fashion. She suggested that Mario should buy flowers with tho money and put them on the Dutchman's coffin. This ideaoomforfakl Marie beyond Btruar- dine'* most sanguine expectations. "A beautiful tin wreath," she said several times, "I know tho exact kind. When my father died, wo put one on his grave. " *« That same evening, during table d'hote, (Bernardino told the Disagreeable Man tho 'history of the afternoon. Ho had boon developing photographs and had heard noth Ing. He seemed very little interested In her relation of tho suicide and merely remarked: "Well, there's one person less (n the world." "I think you nmko those remarks from habit," Bernardino said quietly, and she went on with her dinner, attempting no further conversation with him. She her•elf had boon much moved by tho sad oo- •ourronoo. Kvory one in the Kurhaus was more or less upset, and than* WHS a thoughtful, anxious expression on more than one •ordinarily thoughtless face. The llttlo French dansouso was quiet, tho Portuguese ladies wore decidedly tearful; the vulgar Gorman baroness was quite •depressed! the comedian at the Belgian toblo at* his dinner in sllen<w. lu fact, (here WM a weight pressing down on all. Was It really possible, thought Bwnur- dluo, that Robert Allttaon WM tho only one there unconcerned and unmoved' Bu* had seen hint lu a different light among hlii friends, the country folk, but it WM Just a glimpse which had not lasted long, The young neartodue«s, the geniality, the sympathy which hud so astonished her during their day'* outing astonished her •till wow by their total disappearance. Tip gruffness had returned, or had it never been absent' The lovuloisucM aud leaden- HOW of h|a tamuerameut had onoo uioro assorted themselves, or wan It that they had. never for one tingle day been lu the paper. "Here Is something to Interest you, said, "an article oh 'Koallsm In Fiction' or some nonsense llko that. You- needn't read it now. I don't wants the paper again." > "I thought you never lent anything," Bho said aa she glanced at the article, "much less gave It." "Giving and lending are not usually In my line," ho replied. "I think I told you once that 1 thought selfishness perfectly desirable and legitimate If one had mado the one grout sacrifice." "Yos," she said eagerly. "I have often wondered what you considered the one great sacrifice." "Como out Into the air/' he answered "and I will toll you." She went to put on her cloak and hat and found him waiting for her at the top of tho staircase. They passed out Into tho beautiful night. The sky was radiantly bejowolei, tho air crisp and cold and harmless to do 111. In tho distance the yodel- ling of some peasants. In the hotels the fun and merriment, side by side with the suffering and hopelessness. In tho deaconess' house tho body of tho Dutchman. In God's heavens God's stars. Robert Allitsen and Bernardino walked silently for some time. "Well," she said, "now tell me." "Tho one great sacrifice," ho said half to himself, "Is tho going on living one's llfo for tho sake of another when everything that would seem to make llfo acceptable has been wrenched away, not the picas urcs, but the duties and the possibilities of expressing one's energies, cither In one direction or another—when, In fact, living is only a long, tedious dying. If one has mado this sacrifice, everything else may be forgiven." Ho paused • a moment and then continued: "I have mado this sacrifice; therefore I consider I hove done iny part without flinching. The greatest thing I had to give up I gave up—my death. More could not be required of any one." Ho paused again, and Bernardino was silent from mero awe. "But freedom comes at last," he said, "and some day I shall be free. When my mother dies, I shall bo free. She Is old. If I were to die, I should break her heart, or rather she would fancy that her heart was broken. And it comes to tho same thing. And I should not like to give her more grief than she has had. So I am just waiting. It may bo months or weeks or years. But I know how to wait. If I hove not learned anything else, I have learned how to wait. And then'' Bernardino hod unconsciously put her hand on his arm. Her face was full of suffering. "And then?" she asked, with almost painful eagerness. "And then I shall follow your Dutchman's example," he said deliberately. Bernardino's hand fell from tho Disagreeable Man's arm. "You are cold, you llttlo thing," he sold almost tenderly for him. , "You ore shivering." "Was I?" she said, with a short laugh. "I was wondering when you would get your freedom and whether you would use It in tho fashion you now intend." "Why should there bo any doubt?" he asked. "One always hopes there would be a doubt," she said, half in a whisper. Then ho looked up and saw all tho pain on the little face. Whejw thoughts pawed through her iiilud, M ho Hat next to row rootling hU paper— that nituer which hp never passad on to any one. She hardened her heart against Them wa» no need (or IU. health, und CHAPTER XII. THE DHAOREBABIJC MAN MAKES A LOAH. The Dutchman was burled in the little cemetery which faced tho hospital. Marie's tin wreath was placed on the grave. And there tho matter ended. Tho Kur- It.ius guests recovered from their depression; tho Gorman baroness returned to her buoyant vulgarity; tho little donsouse to her busy flirtations. Tho French marchioness, celebrated in Parisian circles for her domestic virtues, from which she was now taking a holiday, and a very considerable holiday, too, gathered her nerves together again and took renewed pleasure In the society of tho Russian gentleman. The French marchioness had already been requested to leave three other hotels In Pe- tershof, but it WM not at all probable that the proprietors of tho Kurhaus would have presumed to measure madame's morality or immorality. Tho Kurhaus committee had a benign Indulgence for humanity— provided, of course, that humanity had a purse—an Indulgence which some of the English hotels would not have done badly to imitate. There was a story afloat concerning tho English quarter that a tired little English lady, of no importance to look at, probably not rich and probably not handsome, came to tne moat respectable hotel in Petorshof, thinking to find : there tho peace and quiet which her weariness required. But .no one know who the little lady was, whence she had coiue and why. I She kept entirely to taeraolf and was thMikful for the luxury of loneliness after some overwhelming sorrow. One day she WM requested to go. The proprietor of the hotel WM distressed, but ho could not do otherwise than comply with tho demands of his guests. '•It Is not known who you are, mademoiselle, '' he said. " And you aru not approved of. You English are curious, people. But what con I do' You have a cheap i u and are a stranger to mo. Tho others ..avo expensive apartments and eotuo ywir after year. You sou wy position, mademoiselle' I am sorry." Bo the little tired lady had to go. That WM how the story went. It WM not known what became of her, but it WM known that the English people In the Kurhaus tried to persuade her to come to them. But site had lojit heart aud left In distress. .This could not have happened in tho Kurhaus, where all were rooolvod on equal terms, those about whom nothing WM kuowutoud tho*o about whom too much WM known. The strange ntixtiuitt and tu« eaittraeU of character afforded endless Mopo for observation and amuaorneiit, and BernanUue, who WM dolly becoming more interested lu her surroundings, felt that she would have been sorry to nave exchanged her present abode for the English quarter, Tho. amusing »art of It WM that U»q.KttglUa» people to the Kurhaus were regarded by their compatriot* In tho English quarter as sheep of the blackest dye) This WM all the more ridiculous because with two exception*—firstly, of Mr*, lluf- fold, who took Hourly all bur pleasure* with tho American colony in the Grand hotel, and, secondly, of a Scotch widow who hud returned to Potaivuof to w«ep over her hugbaud'a grove, but put away her grlof, together with her widow's woods, aud uunvolod huiwlf wltl* a Spanish gentleman—with thus*) two exception*, tup little Huglish community In the Kurhaus WM most humdrum and harmless, being occupied, us |u tho OMO of the. cameras and chdcao thltea, or In other cases .with. tlto still moreon- grosskhg pastime-of taking care of one'ft 111 health, Whether teal or fancied, but yet an IMiocent hobTJy In Itself and giving one absolutely no leisure to daonythlttg worse —a great recommendation'*or any pastime. Tills was not; Bernardino's occupation. It WM dlfilcult.to say what she did With herself, for she had not j;et followed Robert Allltson's otlvlce nud taken up some definite work, »nd tho very fact that she had* no such -wish pointed probably to a state of health which folbado It. She, naturally so kceaatidhardworking, wa»<jontcnt to4ako what tho hour brought, and the hot* brought various things. Chess with the Swedish professor, or Russian domlnoea with the shriveled up little Polish governess who always tried to cheat and who clutched her tiny winnings with precisely tins* same greediness shoVn by the Monte Carlo fomote gamblers. Or the tour brought a stroll with tho French danscuso ami her poodle, and a conversation about tho mere- trivialities of life, which a year or two, or even a few months ago, Bertuirdlno would hove condemned as beneath contempt, but which wore now taking toelr rightful place In her new standard of Importances, for some natures learn, with greater difficulty and of It er greater delay titan others, that the real Importances of our existence are the noth- ingnesses of everyday life, the nothing- nesses. Which the philosopher in his study, reasoning about and analyzing human character, Is apfe to overlook, but which nevertheless make him and every one else more of a human reality and less Of an abstraction. And Bernardino, hitherto, occupied with so called intellectual pursuits, with problems, of tho study, of no value to tho great world outside tho study, or with social problems of tho great world, great movements and great questions, was now just beginning to appreciate the value of the llttlo incidents of that same great world. Or the hour Drought its own thoughts, and Bernardino found herself constantly thinking of the Disagreeable Man, always in sorrow and always with sympathy and sometimes with tenderness. When ho told her about the one sacrifice, she could have wished to wrap him round with love and tenderness. If ho could only have known It, he had never been so near love as then. She had suffered so much herself, and with increasing weaknesses had so wished to put off the burden of the flesh that her whole heart went out to hint. Would ho get hla freedom, she wondered, and would he use it? Sometimes when she was with him she would look up to aee whether she could read tho answer In his face, but she never saw any variation of expression there, nothing to gl»o her even a suggestion. But this she noticed—that there was a marked variation in hla manner, and that when he hod been rough In bearing or bitter in speech he made silent amende at the earliest opportunity by being less rough and legs bitter. She felt this was no small concession on the part of tho Disagreeable Man. He was particularly disagreeable on the day when tho Dutchman was buried, and so the following day when Bernardino met him In the llttlo English library she was not surprised to find him almost kindly. He had chosen tho book which she wanted, but he gave It up to her at once without any grumbling, though Bernardino expected him to change hla mind before they left tho library. "Well," he said aa they walked along together, "and have you recovered from the death of the Dutchman?" "Have you recovered, rather let me •skr" sho said. "You wore in a horrid mood lost night." "I was feeling wretchedly 111," he said quietly. 'f hat was the Irat time ho hod em alluded to bia own health. "Not that there is any need to make an excuse," he continued, "for I do not rec ognizo that there la any necessity to oon< suit one's surroundings and alter tho inclination of one's mind accordingly. Still, as a matter of fact, I felt very ill." "And today'" she asked. "Today I am myself again," ho answered quickly, "that usual normal self of mine, whatever that may mean, slept well, and I dreamed of you. I can't say that I had been thinking of you, bo- cause I had not. But I dreamed that wo were children together and playmates. Now, that was very odd, because I was a lonely child and never hod any pluyrnatok'" "And I was lonely, too," said Beruar dine, "Every one to lonely," he said, "but every one does not know It" "But now and again the knowledge oomos like a revolution," she sold, "and wo realise that wo stand practically alone, out of any one's reach for help or comfort. When you come to think of it, too, how little able we are to explain ourselves When you have wanted to say something which was burning within you, have yoi not noticed on tho face of the listener that unmistakable look of nonooinprohonslon which throws you back on yourself? Thai is one of tho moments when the sou knows its own loneliness." Robert Allltson looked up at her. "You llttlo thing, "ho said, "y»M put things neatly soowtimes. You have felt, haven't you'" "I suppose *>," she said. "But that is true of most people." "I bog your pardon," ho answered, "most people neither think nor fool unless they think they have attache, and then they feel It!" "I believe," said Bernardino, ' that there Is more thinking and feeling than onu generally supposes." "Well. I can't bo bothered with Una now," he said. ''And you Interrupted mo about my dream. That U an annoying habit you have." "Go on," site sold. "I apologize." "I dreamed wo were children together and playmates," he continued. " Wo wuru not at all happy together, but still we wero playmates. There was nothing we did not quarrel about. You wero disagreeable, and I WM spiteful. Our greatest dispute WM over a Christina* tree. And that was odd, too, for I have never seen a Christ- utM tree.'' "Well'" she sold, for he hod pained. "What a long tune you take to tell • sto ryl" "You were not called Bernordlne," he •old. "You were colled by some ordinary, •enilblo name. I don't remember what. But you were vory disagreeable. That remember well. At iMt you disappeared, and I went about looking for you. 'If 1 eon find something to causa a quarrel,' 1 said to myself, 'site will come back. 1 Bo 1 went aud smashed your doll's head. But you did not oorno back. Thou I set on nro your doll's house. But even that did noi bring you back- Nothing brought you back. That WM my dream. I hope you are not offended. Not that It make* auy djffurenoo If you are." BurnanUnu laughed. "I am sorry that I should haw bouit mob an uuuluiuuuit playmute," ihasald. "It WM u good thing I did disappear." "Perhaps it WM," he suld. ~Thoro vouid.havebuona.terrlbleapauu about that An odd thlngArrme to dream about: Christmas trees andrdolla and play- tttftteSr especially when I; Went to sleep thinking about my new eamera." "Y.QU hare a new camera'" she asked. "Vies," hoanswered, "and ft beauty too. Would you llko to See It?." She-expressed a wish to.aee-lt, and When they-'ieached tho Kurhaus she went With him up to his beautiful: room, where he spent hia time in the company of hla microscope and hla chemical bottles and hla photographic possessions. "If you sit down anddoofc at those photographs, I will make-you some tea," he Said. "There la the- camera, hut please not to touch It until It am. ready to show it-my self." She watched him preparing tho tea. Ho Aid everything so daintily,, thia Disagreeable Man. He put a handkerchief on tho table to servo for an: afternoon teacloth, and a tiny vase of violets formed the centerpiece. He hod noioups, but he polished up two tumblers, and, no housemaid could have been more particular about their glossiness. Then be boiled the water and made tho tea. Once she offered to holp him. but ho shook, his head. "Elndtf not to. Interfere," he said grimly. "No ono-aan make tea better than lean." After tea they began the inspection of the new camera, and Robert Allitsen showed her all the- newest improvements. He did not seem to think much of hir in-' telllgencc, for he explained everything, as though ho weve talking to a child, until Bernardino rather lost patience. 11 You need not enter Into such elaborate explanations,." she suggested. "I have a email amount of Intelligence, though you do not seem to detect it." He looked at her as one might look at an Impatient child. "Kindly not to interrupt me>" ho replied mildly. "How very Impatient you ire I And how rest less I What must you tave been llko before you fell ill?" Bui he took the hint all tho same and shortened his explanation!, and as Bcrnar- line was genuinely interested he was well satlafled. From time to time he looked at tla old camera and at hia companion, and rom the expression of unease on hla face t was evident that some contest waa gong on in his mind. Twice he stood near ila old camera and turned round to Bernardino, Intending to make some remark. Then he changed his mind and walked abruptly to the other end of tho room, as ihough to seek advice from hia chemical jottlea. Bernardino meanwhile had risen Irom her chair and was looking out of the window. You have a lovely view," Bhe Bald. "It must bo nice to look at that when you are ;lrod of dissecting cheese mites. All the same, I think tho white scenery gives one a great sense of sadness and loneliness." "Why do you apeak always of loneliness'" he asked. I have been thinking a good deal about it, "she said. "When I was strong and vigorous, the idea of loneliness never entered my mind. Now I aee how lonely most people arc. If I believed In God as a personal God, I should be inclined to think that loneliness were part of his scheme, so that tho soul of man might turn to him and him alone." The Disagreeable Man was standing by his camera again. His decision was made. "Don't think about those questions,'' he •aid kindly. "Don't worry and fret too much about the philosophy of life. Leave philosophy alone and take to photography instead. Here, I will lend you my old camera." "Do you mean that'" she asked, glancing at him in astonishment. "Of course I mean it," ho said. ! Ho looked remarkably pleased with him•elf, and Bernardino could not help smiling. He looked just as a child looks when he has given Op a toy to another child and Is conscious that ho has behaved himself rather well. I I am very much obliged to you," she i •aid frankly. "I have had a great wish to ' learn photography." "I might have lent my camera to you before, mightn't I?" ho said thoughtfully. ; "No," she answered. "There was not I any reason." ! "No," ho aaid, with a kind of relief, "there was not any reason. That Is quite true." "When will you give me my first lesson?" she asked. "Perhaps, though, you would Ilka to wait a few days, in cose you change your mind." "It takes me some time to make up tny mind, "ha ftiplled, "but I do not change It. So I will give you your first lesion tomorrow. Only you must not be Impatient You must consent to b» taught. You cannot possibly know every tiling." They fixed a time for the morrow, and Bernardino went off with the camera, and meeting Marie on tho staircase confided to her the piece of good fortune which hod befallen her. "See what Herr Allitsen has loot mo, Maria!" one said. Marie raised her hands in astonishment. "Who would have thought such a tiling of Herr Alllteen'" said Mario. "Why, ho does not like lending me a match." Bernardino laughed and passed on to her room. And the Disagreeable Man meanwhile was cutting a new scientific book which hod just com*-from England. He spent a good deal of money on himself, lie was soon absorbed In this book and much Interested in the diagrams. Suddenly he looked up to tho corner whore the old camera had stood before Beruurdlne took it away in triumph. "I hope iho won't hurt that camera," he sold a llttlo uueMlly. "I out half sorry that" SCORES THE PRESIDENT Gorman Makes a Personal Attack on Cleveland. ttE DISCUSSED PARTY PEORETS.. Said Carlisle Had Been Consulted lit Every Stop and That Cleveland Hail Sanctioned All That Wan Hone—Sir Julian Pannoc- foto a Listener—Conference of Pnrl<r> Leaders—Washington New*. WASHINGTON, July 21.—Perhaps no- moreT'emarkable scene was ever witnessed in the United States senate than, that which occurred there Monday when for two and a half hours Senator Gorman, the Democratic leader on the floor, delivered his speech ngainst the president and in defense of the senate tariff Dill. Tho galleries- were packed to the doora and so great wac the interest in Gorman's speech that the members of ths house flocked to the senate end ! of tlin capitol and. the house, being unable lu hold a quorum, adjourned. IMiMinjiicd Flirty Secret*. Senator Gorman, with a frankness that amazed those present, discussed party secrets, opened the door to party caucuses and flashed his searchlight into the dark corners of party history. The president was assailed with keenness •and vigor by the leader of his party on the floor of the senate. He defended the senate tariff bill and its preparation and charged that both Carlisle and Cleveland were not only aware of the conces lions made in that bill to procure its passage through the senate, but that Carlisle has been consulted at every step and that Cleveland had sanctioned all that was done. Senator Gorman ia a cool, easy talker, but he gives tone and gesture a dramatic turn that thrills the auditor. Monday he was at hie best. One by one he called Senators Vest, Jones and Harris aa wit nesses to the truth of his statements Then, having freed himself from all re- atraint, he told the inside history of the conference over the tariff bill. He even • went back and told the secrets of the Mills bill and the St. Louis and Chicago platforms and the demands • made upon the national Democratic committee by the sugar senators in 18W. Penonml Attack on Cleveland. His personal attack on the preeiden was full of the most sensational charac terizations. He told how he had dared when other men faltered, to walk with Cleveland through the "filth and slim of the campaign of 1884;" how he ani bis colleagues had fought for tariff reform "when cowards in high places would not show their heads i" how Cleve land had tried to "gibbet the senate before the eyes of the country;" and aai his action muat be attributed to "con raming vanity"—an action that waa echoed by those who "chirped when h talked." HU references to the president created BO much commotion in the galleries, sometimes of applause and sometimes of disapproval, that the presiding officer was obliged to repeatedly caution them to preserve better order. He was listened to with rapt attention throughout his speech, a deep feeling of excitement being printed on every face. I Pannwfote * Ll»t«n«r, Among those who listened most earnestly waa Sir Julian Panncefote. the British minister, who was in the diplo- . matic gallery. In conclusion Senator Gorman practically warned his colleagues that on the material points it must be the senate bill or nothing. Senator White (Cal.) waa the only other speaker of the day. While personally in favor of free coal and free Iron ore, he, too, declared it to be the part of patriotism for the Democrats to itand together for the senate bill. After he concluded the senate adjourned with the situation seemingly in aa choatic a state aa ever. ConfoMOM of Democratic Leadira. Immediately after the adjournment of the senate there waa a conference of Democratic leaders of that body in the room of the committee on appropriations. Among those present were Senators Gorman, firice, Cockrell, Harris, Ransom and Blackburn, comprising moat of the Democratic steering committee. Tho senators had a long talk and when they departed no conclusion had been reached as to the beat way out of the present delicate position in which the majority found themselves. The propo- ilUou for a caucus was discussed aud some of the senator* thought it would be wise to have a general conference of Democratic a«naton before auy step was taken. The matter of calling a caucus waa left .for further consideration and will no doubt be discussed among other senators and their views ascertained as POFESSIONALCARDS. TTOBNKT and COUNSELOR AT LAW.
