OW I have a piece of that I guess will make that Miss Uver- dale w'ince when she hearsof i t)"ex- clainicd a young lady, coming up to a group of men and women seated on the veranda of a hotel at one of the fush- foible wstcrfii- places. "Well, if there is anything that will make Jhss Everdalc wince I declare I do liope she will hear of it," replied a young 1 woman with a fair round face, but whose black eyes flashed unpleasantly as she spoke "Sh!" said her husband, "I don't like to hear you speak that ivaj, Elsin. J don't see why you all have taken such a dislike to Miss Everdalc. She is as Cue a. vroma.ri as I have met this season, and if she has the good luck to claim all of Roy Gilbert's attention that is no reason why you all should hate her." lp Oh, yes." answered his wife, "we all know that you men, married and single, have adored the ground she walks on. and the rest of us have been nowhere ever since she came. "ot that I care, but I do hate to see a ivoman so forward and bold.'' "Well, now, you just wait and hear T\liat I have to tell," said Miss AYcs- tcn, the first speaker, and the group turned attentive faces to her. "I have this straight from Will," she began. "Toil see Will wns down in the office quite late last night with a f p w of the other men, and among ihem was Hoy Gilbert He became very much interested in relating some of his adventures, and before ho thought--as his manner showed afterward--lie mentioned his wife " "His wife!" they all exclaimed in one breath, and horror was visible on Eome countenances, while others wore a malicious triumphant expression. "Yes, his wife," went on Miss "\Veston, evidently delighted tint sho had aivakencd so much interest. "And Will said some of the men looked kind of queer, and as though they pitied him, for he flushed as red as a school- toy, and then Will said to him: 'Why Gilbert, old boy, we didn't know you bid a wife. SVill she bo with you this season'. 1 ' 1 You knoY7 Will was awfully in love with Miss E-rerdalc before Gilbert came, and I suppose he felt as though he could forgive h i m a n y t h m g aftrr he leai-ned that there was no chance of Gilbert's having- her." "Well, what did Roy say?" asked the blaek-eycd Elsie. "Sav, why he was as cool as j-ou please after the first second and said: " 'Ah, yes; I have a \vife. Sho is visiting her old home this summer. She may get around here before the eesson is over,' and went on as unconcerned as could be with what he v.a=i telling. "Xow, what do you think of that 0 " The men looked at each other and winked and one sour-visagcd chap remarked: "There always was something queer about Gilbert--seemed as though he was trying to hide something'" ' Oh, come, noiv, Carter, that's too bid. If ever there was an honest, ·T.T jjr. ixrr.oDrcE nv V.-IFK. frcc-herirlod, open-faced fcllov.-, that oao is Kov Gilbert. lie's only having- a little f u n , that's all, but it's mighty rough on Miss Evcrdnle." "Well, M:ss Everdalc shall knon it 'w'orc she goes lo bed to-night, if I | |iafo to tell her myself," end tlie look Pleasure it would afford her to bt the informant ".Vow, I'll tell you what let's do," 'ne continued. "After supper we W 'H all be out here on thc veranda, an( l Mis Evcrdalc will be sure to c °mc out; we will call her to us. ood W licr here before us all! \\e all want to sec what she will do and say.'' "! guess it will tako her doivn sorac," remarked a rather old-young 1 J^.'T "and it will be pood enough for her." Aid what of Miss E/crilalc, upon whoso head was to descend such a Wore. A beautiful woman of 30, beautiful '· manner and winning ways rather Inan in features, although "thc soft Jark eyes called attention away from . ° rather too large mouth: wavy ° a rk hair floated about;a full while b row, u cr fig. Qrc n. as pleading to the 'Jit. although not perleet. This was tho first season she had *pcnt at C , and little tvas known "twuthvr, except wha.t they had ob- \,! fhc - v na( ' observed that although «iss EvcrJale was very pleasant, to abn l ''° ioun? mcn "" ll0 tl'^ont'o' 1 j "onl her, sho s e e m e d " t o care for I ""asiinlil the day Roy Gilbert came, ' and si=ce that time 3 fierce flirtation had been sola^ on between them. Roy Gilbert a handsome man of . thirty-five, ha:l money, no one knew | lion- much, bat was considered by the men lo be a fine all-around fellow. I Tha women--H oil the women thou^b'. Jie -vas just aelarliajf until he was so takeu u 3 1T itli .M, ss Kvcrda'.c that all the others could got from him was I an occasion-!] chat, or a smiling 1 S ood I nig-ht or good morning. | And now something liad happened more thac they had e \ t r dreamed, and althoug-h they kacw that none of them could ever havo Gilbert, they were g-lad to know it -was equally impossible for Miss Evcrdale to do'so. So they an\icusly waited to sec how she would bear up unJeV thc information, nor had they any desire to break it to her gently. Their time haj come; for even-one -,vas cow re t u r n i n g from the supper room, and, with thc, came the pair they were wailing- lor. Koy Gilbert's haudsomc head was bending low over Miss E.-crdalc's, aud the carucstncss of his manner, and thc ioveh^ht in hi- eyes spoke plainer to tlie Halting prroup than any words could have done. As he turned to leave her to R-O into the smoking room he passed his arm arouod her waist and drew her closa to him for an instant. The indignation o£ the waiting, watching- group could hardly be suppressed. Miss E\erda]e came slowly up thc veracda alone and as she drew near tlie group of women turned to them with a smile on her happy faca "Isn't this a Cue cvcninTM 1 ?" she said, addressing- {hem all, but they simply drew themselves up and looked s.t her with haughty frowns. "Miss Everdalc," said the volunteer informer, "we wish to spcal; w:th j ou a. moment," and, without waiting 1 for any reply went on: "What we are about to communicate to you we know to be thc truth, nnd can prove it lo bo such. Your friend, Mr. Gilbeit, a wife 1 " They all stood breathless, looking at her, expecting to see her cither grow angry and deny it or to llush with confusion and shame, but she did neither. Slie did not even change color, b u t the smile deepened in tho dark eyes as she Slid quietly: ''Oh, yes, indeed, I know he has; he has been speaking- to me of her. He evpccts her here bufore the season ia out I hope we shall all like her! She was a fortunate woman to become thc wife of such a man as Mr. Gilbert." The smile faded from her face and she ga^ed out to sea. She cither did not or pretended not, tosco thc varied expressions on the faces before her, and, after a few commonplace re- mLtrki,, turned away. After she was out of hearing Miss \Vcston exclaimed: "Did you ever see such a bold, brarcn-faced thing- in all your life?" The next day the couple were thc talk of the whole place, but it did not sccin to disturb them any. Tlie flirtation still went on, and thc rrtil love making- was more open and apparent. Xow and again the men would joke Gilbert about his wife's coining and finding him out, but he always answered them gooJ naturedly. They all liked Gilbert, and the women, although they called him a monster behind his back, were always ready to chat w i t h him To Miss Everdale they were moro than cold, aud alwaj s looked upon her as something to be shunned Such was the stats of affairs, w h e n one morning the hotel carriage came to thc door and toaV a w a y Miss I2ver- dale, bag and bagfrag». could it mean? All d,iy long was her departure the subject of speculation, but. in the evening thc m) stc.-y was solved. Mr. Gilbert came i n t o the parlor with an open letter in Ins hand, and said: "I have just recoiveJ a I r l L c r from mv wife. She s^ys slio \M!! be w i t h me to morrow evening, as i t is thc tenth anniversary of our marriage, and u h g r e x c r we are w e al-.vays plan to spend that day togetncr.

The bill as it passed the senate was buusuimiaiiy me same as that reported from the committee, no hostile amendments, although there were scores of them offered, receiving a majority. The thirt3'-one aflirmalive votca were made up of t w e n t y republicans and eleven democrats. Tliu opposition composed fifteen democrats, three republicans and three populists. Senator Talmer secured thcadoption of an a m e n d m e n t giving the President of the United States poucr to remove from ofiice at any Lime in his discretion any of Use g-ovei ninent directors. The bill will nou go to tne house, w'heic it is almost certain to come to an untimely end. The bill in brief directs the issue of 370,000,000 of Nicurorrua ciintil bonds, bearing the guarantee of tho L'uitcil Stales.
