It is annoanced that Cliiis. L. Magee, the Western Pennsylvania Republican leader, has retired from politics. This may or may not be true, Mr. Magee is a very wealthy man, and Indulges in the game of politics for amusement and to help his friends. If be has retired it is because he has had all the fun he wants. But we opine that Mr. Magee will not stay out of the game very long, and when he so desires he will be found at work at the same old stand. One thing is certain, when his party calls he will be found gallantly .fighting for Republican principles and supremacy. He is not the man to shirk duty, as the magnificent Re publican majorities in Allegheny county attest . Mr. Magee may retire for a season of rest, but politics will not lose him for good. JOHK Jaeeett will make $10,000 a year ont of his foreign consulate. Good. Wish it were $20,000. He deserves it . - - ' " TOO QUICK WITH THE KNIFE. The New York physicians who held an antonsv on the body of Bishop, the mind - reader, before it was certain he - was dead, have been hauled up by the authorities for doing that which they had no legal authority to do. It is alleged now that Bishop had on several occasions laid two days in a catalep tic trance, and came out all right, and the dead man's mother insists that he was in a trance when the doctors cut him up. Other physicians, notably Dr. Sayre.say that the men who performed the autopsy were too quick with the knife. At all events the affair has caused a great deal of discussion among the physicians, and in this discussion the general public is let into a good deal of the inside of how the New York doctors operate and the undue haste in which a man is hacked to pieces after he is alleged to be dead. The . nhvsicianB will have to answer for their "mistake." Science is too expensive a lux ury if it demands live men to be cut up. Ex - Seceetaey Bayabd is about to be married to a young lady in Washington. This is one of the most sensible things the Secretary has done in later days. m ABOLISH IT. Flash literature had another victim yes terday. A Chicago youth, crazed by reading of the proweBS of scouts, cow - boys, train rob bers, buffalo hunters, road agents and In - . dians, deliberately shot two of his com - panions, killing one and seriously injuring the other. Almost every day the same sort of story comes to us of crazed boys running away from home to kill people in the west or killing somebody at their homes. Two weeks ago a Philadelphia youth with his pockets loaded down with flash literature pulled a revolver and shot a companion dead,' remarking, "That's the way the cow - boys do." There seems to be no help for it except to make it a misdemeanor to sell the trashy stuff, but the Legislature allowed such a bill to go by default at the last session in its efforts to pass a resolution providing for the New York junket . The flash novel ought to go. - It is announced that Judge White, of Pittsburg, who created such havoc among the liquor license applications, is going to take the stamp for prohibition. This is what you might call "rubbing it in.'' 9 B m It was considered of sufficient importance to cable yesterday that the Saraoau Congress held a two hours' session. Nobody cares particularly how mauy hours - the Congress puts in, but pretty much everybody would like to know what is being done, and whether the United States is holding her own. If there are not many executions in Pennsylvania the courts keep on convicting men of murder in the first degree, all the same.

Very well, it is for the South to say. Bribery has been discovered in Baltimore's Councils. Quite natural. Baltimore's Councils are overwhelmingly Democratic. Calvin S. Brice wants to be Chairman of the National Democratic Committee. The experience of last fall seems to have been lost on him. CoL Tom Ochiltree says he was injured by a cab in Washington, and wants $25,000 damages. This is funnier than his red hair or his storied. What's this ? Trouble in the Star route service under Democratic rule ? By and by the light will break on the late administra tion and then look out Three foreign forgers who landed in New York yesterday were at once arrested and will be sent back.

A Springfield woman with an invalid husband, who was not expected to live, thought she would take time by the forelock and engaged a dressmaker several weeks ago to make a full suit of mourning for her. This week the dressmaker received a letter stating that the looked - for event had not yet taken place and the wife had decided to wait nntil the death of her husband, as she wished her suit made in the latest style, This cheerful postscript was added to the letter: "Please do not get discouraged about it You will be sure of the job sooner or later."

J NEXT WEDNESDAY'S GREAT MUSICAL EVENT IN HARRI9BUKU. Something About P. 8. Cilmore, the l - a - mona Band Leader and Popular Con. doctor, and the Celebrated Artists lie Will Introduce That Artillery Accompaniment Other Fea - tures of the Jubilee. The smilin&r. eenial countenance of Pat rick Sarsfield Gilmore, originator and execu tive of the ereat Boston Jubilees, founder and developer of the present high - grade military band, the pet leader of New York and general favorite or America, is Known all over the hemisphere and throughout most parts of the world, and wherever known he is loved by the people for his many good qualities of mind and heart and his general musical abilities. From his single brain emanated the great iV Boston Jubilees, the X)i two most gigantic "V festivals recorded in history; and against fearful odds he labored for months to gain recognition of their feasibility, and finally, after almost superhuman Strug gles, overcame all obstacles and saw them blaze in tri umph, This is the twentieth anniversary of the first of these sublime affairs and Gil - more is giving a series of Jubilees throughout the large De Vere. cities to commemorate the event Gilmore's iustly celebrated band, with its . - . 1 - i 1 1 many unequaiea soioisis, win mrm hid foundation of the celebration. There will also be the anvils and artillery features, and eight great special artists will be introduced who are as strong as any that could possibly be associsted together for such a purpose. Signorina Clementina De Vere will prove a card oi most at tractive and interest ing quality, because she is the latest of really great Italian soprano singers to visit our shores, and brilliant promises are made for her. She is a total stranger to us, ex cepting in the repu tation which precedes her. New York has received her with distinguish ed tavor, and placed her among Patti, Gerster, Nilsson and Jenny Lind. She Stone - Barton. is said to possess a voice very simil ar to Gerster's, with good strength and a most brilliant execution. . Her method is Italian, being a pupil of the Florence Conservatory and Albertine Baucarde. She also studied with Gounod, Thomas and Verdi. - She is young and at the very outset of a fresh career, which promises, to be meteoric in bril - liancy. The American prima donna soprano is Mme. Blanche Stone - Barton, a lady of queenly beauty and remarkably fine voice, fully 'developed m the Italian school. As an artist the receives Mr. Gilmore's heartiest praise, and although never heard l n ilarrisburg 1 s nevertheless well - known. The best ,five years of her I studies was with the European masters, Randegger, of JOon - don, and the great Marchesi, of Pans, Helen Dudley Campbell. The flexibility of her voice and the brilliancy of her execution are marvelous, and the refinement of art tamps her every effort Miss Helen Dudley Campbell is the young and charming contralto, Mme. Cappiani's brightest pupil. Her voice is the purest, and her culture beautifully flavors every note ut tered. Miss Campbell has the reputation of a thorough and refined artist with the finest feeling, which is conscientiously displayed in all her singing, The three ladies are remarkable especial! v for being young, and possessing fresh voices and being at the commencement of careers instead ; of being on the waning side. The celebrated Campanini, with the truest feeling, the finest method and perfection of the vocal art, can never fail to be a favorite. His career is that ol the finest of all tenors, and he is tco well - known from his birth at the anvil to Campanini. his present celebrity to need a word of praise or promise. Eugene de Danckwardt is a dashing young Swedish tenor with a olear Scandinavian voice and a well de - v e 1 o p e d French method, learned under Masset, Striglia and Barbot, in Paris. His voice is of good range, easily compassing high U., and is tun, sympa thetic and even throughout. His music will be sung in English and French, as well as in his native tongue. Signor Del Puente is another favorite who needs no intro - Danckwardt. duction. He is the grandest of baritones, being excellent in voice, method and art His studies were mostly pursued under Guericia and Scafato, and his early successes were all in the old world. He has long been an American ia vorite and enioys flattering social prominence. He is the ideal Toreador ic "Carmen," and that will be one of his songs here. When the name of Myron Whitney is mentioned the chord is touched which sounds the worn ot victory in' advance. Such a voice, such a refined, elevating basso, , has never been equaled in America. The great Vanucini and the fine Del Puente, master, Kandegger, were his teachers, and no pupil ever did them more honor. Sig. Rodolfo Ferrari, whom Gilmore r 6 S?WAt " m n 7 raau selected as; the pianist of his Jubilees, stu died in the liceo (conservatory) of Bologna,' and came out in 1880 with the diplo - m a of composer. He took the only prize, mention honorable, for a melody for string instruments given by the Liceo Marcello at Venice, one of the most important mU ncal conservatories in Italy. This com position was played at Venice, Ureviso, and at the Musical Exposition at Bo Whitney. logna last year, ne onmnnsed amonc others also a nscherzo or - rhpsfrnlfi. whicn was periormca uy mo ui - r . . e . i it,. chestra of La Scalia. As an orchestra leader he directed at the Fenice (Venice). Pergola (Florence), Muse (Ancoua).and he bad the most honorable position last year, directing the classical concerts at the musical - exhibition at Bologna, having been chosen by the professors of the Liceo there. All of these artists' represent leading teachers, and embody ia in liiwh decree Bodolfo Ferrari. novfaoKin n that thrir singing will be V A. JVl ivvmvuj w to a musical education. Bein a celebration of the Boston Jubilee, it is auite proper that the "Anvil Chorus ohnnlri he renrodnced. with its accompani - mant nf Anvils and artillerv. This will be ilon with all its ereat effect, the cannon be ing placed outside of the building and discharged with - electric wires, so that the booming will be heard in as precise time as the beating of a bass drum. The section cut of the breech of the cannon shows how Gilmore's patent artillery loaded at - the breech, and the connecting wires - for electric dis charge. The battery consists of six guns, which can be fired 120 times per minute, They will be placed in the park opposite the Onera House, and the electric wires run to the stage. There will be two concerts at the Grand Onera House Wednesday next afternoon at 2 :30. evening at 8 o'clock. The seat sale is already open at Markley's drug store, and the attendance for both concerts promises to be as large as the Opera House can accommodate. In many places people are being turned away, so it will be well to look early to reserving seats and not possibly miss this magnificent musical opportunity. - NEW PUBLICATIONS.

For sale at Fleming's book store. An Entertaining Journey. Feom Japan to Gbanada. Sketches of observation and inquiry in a tour round the world in 1887 - 8. By James Henry Chapin, Ph. D. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons. Some people possess in a remarkable degree the faculty of seeing things. When such people journey in out of the way places and are pleased to write down their experiences and the results of their observation the consequence is what the critics call a charming book of travels. Mr. Chapin is a practical traveler, and has written a very practical, interesting - book. He goes over some old ground, but does not become dull in doing it, and some of his relays bring him into comparatively new places, as, for instance, Ceylon, which has not been much used as material for books. His descriptibn of the Island is both comprehensive and graphic. The whole is entertaining and companionable. The reading public will be glad that the author put his experiences in print For sale at Fleming's book store. 'Adam Kent's Choice." Bv Humphrey Elliott No. 11 of the ""Manhattan Series" of Popular American Novels. Published by A. L. Burt 56 Beekman street, N. Y., at 25 cents. The story deserves a general indorsement by the public, not only on account "of its true literary merit but from the charm of originality which governs the tale from beginning to end. It will interest alike the novel readers of both sexes. It deals with the wavering love of a man neither good nor bad, but whose life becomes entangled with the first love of a pure young girl and the ungovernable love of an older woman of the world. Once a Week, An illustrated literary journal published in New York by P. F. Collier, is now one of the most attractive publications of its class in the country. It is beautifully printed, the illustrations are first class, and the letter press leaves nothing to be desired X he publication has' just entered its third volume, but it has already gained great popularity, which must increase as time passes. The number for Saturday next contains a supplement of 32 pages containing the newest novel, entitled "Lady Blue beard," by the author of "Zit and Xoe." All of which goes for ten cents a bargain, even in these days of cheap literature. In the Magazines. A serial story entitled "The Begum's Daughter" is an attractive feature of tbe Atlantic Monthly for several months, be ginning with the May number. It is bv n,uwiii jjagseirer xiynner, wnose previous novels, "Penelope's Suitors" and "Agnes Surriage," have given him an enviable repu tation. He Struck the Right Man. The other day an important - looking gentleman took a seat beside a quiet man in an Arkansas railway carriage and began a conversation. "I'm going up to Little Rock," he said, ' 'to get a pardon for a convicted thief. I'm not personally uiquitinted with the Governor, but he can't uiford to refuse me." "Is the fellow guilty ?" asked the man. "Of. course he is; but that makes no difference. His friends have agreed to give me $500 if I get him out, and the thermometer is very low when 1 can t get up a good talk Where are you traveling ?" "Going to Little Rock." Do you live there ? "Yes." ' Terhaps yon might be of some service to me. What business are you in ?" "I'm the Governor." He wasn't of the least 'service to him." is MRS. MONTGOMERY SWIFT. A Disconsolate Society Girl's Darlk Successful Ruse. ,r i, , Jessica Wynne had waving brown hair. merry dancing eyes, red lips always narted over small white teeth, a round waist and a bright fresh complexion; she was barely 17, a perfect edition of the pocket Venus and the possessor of a fair portion. These were her assets, against which stood the - facts that she lived in a quiet country honan in Wales, that she had neither father nor mother, and had been since her babyhood the charge of a widowed, childless aunt blessed ,1 l 1 il - A f . witu u imiiauiurojjLi; turn oi mina and more solicitous of sparing labor to her lady helps .i r i i .r . ii - i man ui i - uuinuuuug iu me pleasures of her niece. However, on the whole, the odds were in favor of the girl, who beincr rifted with a fearless, independent nature, contrived to make the most of opportunites, and as she grew up became the acknowledged belle f - 3 TT . or tne couairy siue. er reputation ex tended as far as L,arditt and Brecknock, and i. : . - no comity ui gamauu uu.ii was , ueemed a success unless Miss Wynne was m - esent She was escorted to these festivities by some bliging chaperon, to .whom Mrs. Polsover trusted her, sometimes for a couple of days at a stretch, with many recommendations as to propriety and deportment One never to be forgotten day Jessica was invited by some acquaintances she had made at Cardiff, and who had taken a great fancy to her, to spend two months with them in London immediately after Easter. The girl passed a Week in a delirious joy of preparation and anticipation ; she dreamed of triumphs which would eclipse those of the lit tle Welsh belle, of intoxicating. delights, of parties, balls, Hurlingham, Sandown, the new club, the theaters, of all the places she had read ot m tne society papers; and. look ing at her pretty face in the glass, she even hoped that it might be her proud fate to see her name in print as "the lovely Miss Wynne in some - glorihed paragraph. CoL and Mrs. Tressilian, her future hosts, were a lashionanie, miaaie - aged couple, ad dicted to a good deal of wandering over Europe in search of health and amusement but generally occupying a fine house in South Ken sington during the season, where they enter tained liberally both their compatriots and foreigners, whenever they were not them selves being entertained. Jessica Wynne returned to Wales at the beginning of July. If Mrs. Polsover had been observant she might have noticed shadow in the laugning Drown eyes, a certain compression in the scarlet lips. ' She vaguely observed that the girl was unusually reticent about ner juonuon . experiences. "Yes, London was very gay plenty, of things going 'on, of course ; lots of fine gowns. good music. Oh, yes, heaps of concerts, too many of them. "Mad she enjoyed her self?" of course; how could she help enjoy ing herself in London during the season?' and answers to that effect - . The truth of the matter was that the popular little Welsh belle had been sorely neglected in London. She found, to her in dignant dismay, that her beauty, wit and repartee remained unappreciated; with in creasing choler, she soon remarked that other maidens, as fresh and fair as herself, shared her ignominious obscurity. . Her - consciousness, which was not conceit told her that she was sacrificed to rivals less fair, less clever, and above all, less young; she realized that one and all of tbe snccessful queens of society were odious married women fast bold, exacting, tyrannical matrons, who monopolized the attention of all the men. She saw those unprincipled creatures . sur rounded by their courtiers at the play and at the races; they were asked to dinners, picnics and balls and when poor little Jessica did get a card for a dance the entertainment painruiiy reminded ner or tne nreaking np ' festivities at her school, where the white frocks so hopelessly predominated over the black coats. Remembering all these things, the girl set her teeth hard, gathered her eyebrows into a resolute frown and vowed that if she had lost her first inning she would be even yet with the London world. Miss Wynne had not forgotten her vow, or else fortune favored her. .A; year later Mrs. Polsover died, leaving half her money to the lady helps, the other half to Jessica, who became, almost an heiress. . When Bix months had passed, a little paiagraph appeared in several Welsh papers containing the following intelligence : ; x "We understand that the beautiful Miss Jessica Wynne will, at the expiration of her mourning, return to society as the bride of Capt Montgomery Swift This gallant officer, now en leave, will, however, shortly after the honeymoon be compelled to join his regiment abroad. " - ; . , This announcement shorn of local hyperbole, gradually found its way into the Birmingham and Manchester dailies, and finally drifted into one or two London papers. Mrs. Montgomery Swift took a charming furnished house in Mayf air, kept a perfectly appointed brougham and victoria, procured her toilets from Paris and forthwith became the rage. Her gowns were copied, her repartees quoted, her 5 o'clock at homes crowded. ahe gave neither dinners nor parties, availed herself of a few of the intro ductions obtained through the - Tressulians, who were abroad ; with charming impertinence and pretty audacity dropped all the people she considered bores, and plunged into the maddest whirl of social dissipation, American girls gnashed their teeth with envy when the little "grass widow" carried off their most hopeful admirers, dowagers frowned, young matrons pursed their lips, mothers of marriageable daughters were bit ter, but Mrs. Montgomery bwilt heeded them not, and reveled in her popularity, "Who the deuce is Capt. Swift, and whore does he hang out?" queried a guardsman of a fellow warrior parting from Jessica, when she re - entered her carriage after her daily walk in the park. - "Who cares a big D for the husband of a pretty woman? was the flippant answer. "He 8 somewhere on the gold coast r in India, or at Suakim, she tells me; he might be dead and buried for all I care only it s much safer to know there s a husband some where; and, to do the little woman justice, although she flirts to the nines, she does drag the captain in pretty freely ; and even were he to mount guard over her like a watch dog he wculdn t find much to make a rumpus about. "No,', sajd the other, reflectively, pulling his mustache; "it s a case of Canute and the sea 'just so far and no farther.' She's ticklish one to deal with. I don't quite make her out "She does pull a fellow up pretty short sometimes, that's a fact; but she's awfully jolly no confouuded sentiment about her not like those old stagers who run you in before you know where you are. She's rare fun, by jove 1" and he smiled with retrospec tive enjoyment For once the yerdict of clubs, mess rooms and smoking rooms was l ust ; Mrs. Mont gomery Swift's morals were unimpeachable. Without ostentation she frequently alluded to her absent consort, retailed passages from his correspondence, bewailed the long exile and frequent changes entailed by his pro fession, wondered how long he would remain in those outlandish places where wives were an impossibility, and occasionally reduced her admirers to frantic despair by announce ing her intention of joining Captain Swift wherever he might be sent next. When as sured that snch self immolation would be madness she pensively concluded that per haps it was wiser to await his return to civilization and England. Sometimes not very often Jessica was alone, and then she would look at herself in the glass and smile quaintly. "Isn't it funny?" she murmured, scanning her fea tures. "I am sure I am not quite so fresh and pretty as I was two years ago, and don't think I'm nearly as nice. And yet - then nobody even looked at me, while now " Her eyes sparkled. "Oh, my blessed husband what a service you have rendered me ! And to think I shall never, never be able to repay you ! Toward the middle of August with the abruptness which characterized all her movements, Jessica, without a word of warning to her courtiers, accepted an invitation to spend a fortnight in Scotland with a young married couple who had taken a houBe on Loch Lomond fo?two months. She had not been told whether or not there would be other guests, but she knew that the Bellunes had the knack of making people comfortable, and she felt just a little tired of a surfeit of devotion, and inclined to escape from it and rusticate in comparative solitude. So one morning she found herself at St "Rlncras station, and wheu her maid, previous . to seeking her seeond - class carriage, had settled her in a first - class one, with her books, rags nddressing bag, she prepared for ner long solitary journey with .restful satisfaction. However, just as tne nour tor departure had struck the door of her carriage was violently opened, a military looking portmanteau and case were, tnrust in, a guaro exclaimed, Plenty of room i ust in time jump m, sir thank yon, sir !" and Slammed the door again upon a tall, handsome . man, who had entered hurriedly, and who, as the train steamed out of the station, looked rather disconcerted in finding himself tete - a - tete with ayonng, pretty and elegant woman. Before reaching Leicester the travelers had already exchanged a few commonplace civilities connected with the pulling up and down of windows, the loan of newspapers, etc. Instinctively they recognized that they belonged to the same social class; each dis covered in the other a certain independent, unconventional originality, - ' and, like strangers meeting by chance at some dinner party, they soon began to converse on every possible suDjeci. . i "Do yon propose stopping at ifidinbnrgr said the gentleman, when, after Nor man ton and lunch, they had resumed their seats. "For the night perhaps; but I am bound for Invcsnaid, " answered Jessica, ; "Ah '" with a slight Atart ."I have some friends about there myself relations. sI wonder if they know my . - friends at tne lowerer - .. . ; - '4 "The Bellunes?" . - . :. . . , "Exactly. : "Why, Dora Bellune is my cousin, and I am on my way to see her."

Is it wife? Is it widow?" V - '1 own there may be reason for a doubt, You see, it is difficult to be a widow with out having been a wife,' and as men don't marry girls nowadays, it is equally difficult to be a wife.

I left the P. & O. three days ago, and am on my way to the Bellunes to ask what they were about in allowing their , nearest relative to be labeled all over the world as booked and done for, "A hard case, and one deserving of. much pity. So the indignity of wedlock has been put npon you. - Accept my deepest sympathy. " "i on may laugh, bat it was, is odious All the fellows out there af ;t to believe it is true that I am a derelict ausband with a family. On landing here I found no end of letters of congratulation.

"l shall," he said, sternly, They were just steaming into the Carlisle station. Jessica remained alone, while her companion smoked a cigar on the platform. she took advantage of the gathering twilight to rise, and. unperceived, to examine the hat box reposing . in ' the rack. She had some difficulty in dcipering it, and fell back into the seat as the owner of it stepped once more into the carriage. He fancied she looked very pale, and asked her if she was tired. She did not answer at once, but as soon as the train was fairly under way she said abruptly: ."Is your, name Montgomery Swilt?" . t... ; "It is," he said, surprised ; but glancing at the hat box which lay in an altered position, he added : "Have yon : guessed that too, yon fortune teller?" "And you call yourself a captain? said Jessica, in the same harsh voice. - "I do till I become a maior. 'Impossible ! - There is not a Captain Montgomery Swift in the whole British army." ; . : ' - : - ' - ; 1 beg your pardon, I am that humble officer." - - . "No, you are not; there is no such man in the army list there was not a year ago, ' "Possibly not at that time, for a year ago I was Monty Gordon.' ; Last . Christmas a good old man, who was my godfather, died and left me all his fortune and estates; on condition that I should take and bear his name. I complied. A Swift was mannfac tured out of a UOrdon, and yet - remain a captain. Under either application, equally at your command. : But now I must ask of your dressing bag the same introduction fur nished by my hat box, and learn by what name I can address my traveling incognita when I meet her again at the Towers. He quietly bent over the - flap of Jessica's 'neat Russia leather bag, but saw only the letters - "Ah." he said, ''the same initials as mine;" then, "interrogatively, "they spell?" "Jessica Montgomery Swift A dead silence followed. Jessica lay back against the cushions, motionless, with a crimson flush on her cheeks and forehead, Capt Swift felt that some painful mystery was about to be disclosed and that the wc man by his side was gathering strength for a great effort. He generously repressed every sign of curiosity or astonishment, and waited hei pleasure. After a few moments she turned toward him and spoke slowly and hesitatingly. "I throw myself upon your mercy, Capt Swift; do not deny publicly to morrow that yon ever were married to - Jessica Wynne. Do not pursue those who originated that libel. Give me time. I assure you that I will do mv utmost to undo what I have done. " She looked very young and fair, with her earnest eves and moist lashes. "What have you done?" he said, simply. ' "Listen to me. and forgive me if you can When I came to London, at 18, I found it a horrid place ; only married women were ad mired, petted and courted we girls were nowhere. So I made up my mind to come back to town married, and as I had not a husband handy they are so. , scarce you Know I invented one. I thought . JL was quite safe. I wanted him to be an officer, because England has such a lot of troops in places people never go to. . I looked all oyer the army and navy lists to make sure I did no choose a name belonging to any living man; I christened him Montgomery Swift, haphazard; I put the paragraphs in the papers. He was a very likely sort of a husband to have, you know, and it seems so natural that hie should forever be among tbe savages anywhere. Nobody seemed to care about him at all; but they did for his wife simply because she - was not a girl, and it was all working beautifully. Oh, why did you turn up? Whv did you have a Swift for a godfather? Why did he die?" "Would it have suited you to keep up this farce much longer ?" said Capt Swift gravely, but an amused look passed in his eyes. "Only a little while," said Jessica, promptly. "I intended becoming a widow very soon some of the climates out there are so unhealthy no one would have asked any questions. One accepts anything in London when it is convenient to be credulous ; but if you are that horrid man, please don't expose me yet" . "Not till I am dead, eh?" "I can't make him out dead, now, she said petulantly ; "but I will go away, hide myself, never show my face again." ."That would be a pity; there must be some other way to achieve widowhood." "Don't be cruel it is dreadful ! and I know I have been very foolish. But really," she added, with a resumption of her old quaint coquetry, "I can't do more than ask your pardon." "Yes you can ; you can ask for my advice, " he said, extending his hand, "and on my honor as a gentleman, I will help you to get out of this scrape." They talked low and earnestly for the re - mainder of the journey. At Edinbnrg they shook hands warmly and parted. , Neither Jessica nor Capt Swift went to the Towers. Two . separate , telegrams informed Mrs. Bellune that her expected gnests were un avoidably prevented from joining her party; nor did Mrs Montgomery Swift gladden the hearts of her faithful swains by her presence at the fashionable resorts of summer or early antumn. Three months later Jessica was walking on the seashore only a mile distant from a pretty village near Bagni di Lucca, looking as tresb, crisp and fair as before ner first disastrous London campaign, only there was a new tenderness - in the dancing eyes as she lifted them trustfully to those of a tall man on whose arm her small hand rested. "And so you are really, truly not sorry that you never denied vour marriage with Miss Wynne?" she said, coaxingly. wot sorry, at all. darling, as it saves me the fuss of communicating it now." answered uapt &wift "Im desperately glad, though, it s au settled and done with. MRS. COOPER'S NIECE. "Philip," said old John Briggs to his son, "you are 28 years old to - day. " 'So the family record says, father, re sponded the elegant young gentleman ad dressed. "I am disposed to place implicit reliance upon it and on you. 'You have done nothing since yoa left college but kill time. 'It is only retaliation in advance, sir, Some day or other the old chap with the scalp lock and scythe will kill me. "You are too flippant Since your Aunt Priscilla left you five thousand a year, you have done nothing but spend the money, Your income ought to be enough for a single man, bat yoa draw on me, too. "1 11 try to draw on you less, sir. "It's not that Philip. You are quite welcome to a check now and then, for I know that you neither game nor revel, and I don t mind your horses, ; your club, your natural history craze, nor your luxurious . tastes. But still you spend more money and get less for it than most young men of your age have too much, in fact 'I don t find it too much. sir. In fact 1 was thinking what a graceful thing it would be if you were to double it a mere trifle to a gentleman of your means. I have to nse the most pitiful economy, I assure yon." "Oh. that's at. eh? Welt there is a mode to increase it very much. You haye heard me speak of Philander Sprigga, of New York?" "Money londer and skinflint? I have heard of him." "Nonsense, Philip. He is a qnite worthy, as well as a very wealthy, man. and if he prefers to invest ready money in short loans what of that? I lend my money, or some of it sometimes. "But not at cent per cent. "jNo matter. 1 don t propose that you shall borrow of him. He has an only child, who will inherit all his vast property, just as yoa will mine. "Does she shave notes, lather? Jr Ml, be kind enough not to indulge in chaff. I have seen her and talked with her, She is young, handsome, well educated, and has good, taste a society gentlewoman with domestic tastes. "Well, father, you are not so old, and since you admire her so much, 1 see no reason why " "atop your nonsense and listen, bpriggs and I had a talk over it when I was in New York, and we have concluded, if you two come together, to chip in equally and settle a half - million on you on your wedding day, With what yon have yon 11 do well enough for a while, "I'd like to oblige you, father. I suppose I must marry some day ; but it will be some one I love, and then, Philadelphia like, insist on a woman of good family. Some one you love! Mow the deuce do yoa know you'll not love her till you see her, Good family I Of course you re entitled to that The peerage of England is full of Viscount Briggses. . The Briggses are found in the "Almanach von Gotha" among the erlaucJit families. Your grandfather made $300,000 in hides and tallow, and if he had not invested it in real estate that multiplied itself more than 10 fold before he died, I should have been in the same business to day, and yoa in the counting room or ware house. Family, indeed! You're a foolish boy, Philip, and your aunt's legacy . has mined you.', "I wish, sir, there were a half - dozen more old aunts to continue my rmn in the same way. It is of no nse getting angry, father. You can't keep it np. I'll take to anything you say law, phyBic or divinity, sell my horses, drop my club, read by the cubic foot but to marry exense me." "See here, Phil," exclaimed his father. who by this time was at a white heat you can marry to please me, and I will not only start you fairly in life now, but leave you all 1 have when I am gone. Marry to suit some foolish fancy of your own, and I'll yes, I'll found an asylum for idiots. Now you under stand me." And Briggs marched off leaving his son to his meditations. "If I stay here, " said Philip to himself, "father and I will quarrel. Better give the dear old gentleman a chance to cool off. I'll ruralize a little." That afternoon Philip packed a portman teau and with a fishing - rod and mineral hammer started off to Montgomery county, where an old college - mate of his had married and settled, one whom he had long promised to visit. When he arrived there he learned that Boudinot and his wife had gone to Long Branch for the season, and their servants with them, the house being in charge of a care - taker. Philip heard of good fishing in a stream four miles off and concluded to try it He found lodgings at a farm bouse near the place, owned by a man named Seth Cooper. - His quarters were quite comfortable. The house was an old stone building of ante - revolutionary erection, and was roomy. He was assigned to a chamber upstairs looking out on a trimly kept garden in which old - fashioned flowers and pot herbs were grown side by side, and which sent a pleasant fragrance through the open window. The room itself was adorned with pictures and knick - knacks, showing feminine taste, and the bedstead was furnished with a hair mattress, and not the bag of feathers of the vicinage. "Decidedly," said Philip to himself, "there is another female on the premises, something younger and possibly fairer than the substantial Dame Cooper, and with some refined taste." But neither that day nor that week did he see any woman other than Mrs. Cooper or the hired girl. In a week's time the country grew monotonous to him. . As he sat upon the veranda one afternoon debating the matter, a wagon was driven up the lane and stopped at the door. Lightly out stepped a young woman in a neat traveling dress, and tne driver followed her with a large trunk, under which he staggered, burly as he was. Mrs. Cooper came from the kitchen and exclaimed : "Why it's Gwenny, I declare!" . "You dear old Aunty Ruth!" said the new - comer, hugging and kissing the farmer's wife. "I came to have a good time for a month." "And so you shall, my dear," was the hearty reply. Philip took an ocular inventory of the looks, dress and manner of the newcomer as he took off his hat "A sweet face and graceful figure, and presentable anywhere, " was his internal comment. "Here's luck. I shall not visit the branch yet " "You have a boarder, aunty," said the girl when upstairs with Mrs. Cooper. "Ye3. He's a Mr. Bee," said the other. "It don't look as if he had any call to work for his living, judging by his white hands and his fix - ups, and he's plenty of money." "Bee! Then he isn't a busy bee. But he's good looking; if he be agreeable he'll do for a walking stick." Mrs. Cooper's mistake as to Philip was natural enough. When she had asked his name on his coming he had said, in his airy way, "Philip B., at your service," and she had taken the sound of the initial for his surname. After she had called him Mr. Bee several times Philip saw tbe blunder, smiled at it, and, as the naval officers say, "made it bo;" and when Gwenny came to the table she was introduced, "Miss Gwenny, Mr. Bee." As she was the niece he concluded her name to be Cooper, but as the farmer addressed her as Miss Gwenny, and the farmer's wife as Gwenny, Philip chose the more respectful form of the two. jrnuiD soon learned tnat "uwenav ' was the diminutive of Gwenllian, and not of the more stilted Gwendoline, which interested him. Philin's mother nail nann a Pnwel. with Welsh blood in her veins, and bore the same name. This later Gwenllian was a mystery to him. VY nat was 8he a tnarhor?

He was a gentle man beyond doubt But what was he doing there, a man of culture, refinement and ! sesthetic tasteB, idling along. - .The girl did not at first deem she was the attraction, but 1 it came to her after five weeks, and she grew shy, and her shyness for the last week of her stay infected Philip, who - became shy too, and lost all. ease. At length she announced to Mrs., Cooper that she, had to return home to Philadelphia the next day. All the night that folio wed. Philip lay and tossed restlessly. He could not sleep. : He felt that his father would be as good as his i word, but he would win a wile then or never. Near morning he arose, dressed and sat at the window nntil the sun . showed itself. Then he slipped ont of the house and strolled toward a glen a few yards off, intending to remain ont until he heard the breakfast bell.

"Briggs rhilipr cried liwenny, releasing herself from his grasp and looking at him wonderingly. "Is vour father s .: name John?" "Yes." "And he Iive3 in Philadelphia?" "Yes." Gwenny burst into a peal of silvery laughter. "Do not feel vexed Philip," she said at length. "I am only laughing at the similarity of our positions. My father chose a husband for me in the same way, and it was to escape discussion of the matter that I took these few weeks' rustification, Mrs. Cooper is; my old nurse, and I have called her 'aunt' ' from the : : time " I : could toddle around. 1 She was married from bur house.

There is nothing doing in old goods. A round of the jobbers results in "nothing worth mentioning." The manufacturers are the only persons who buy old goods, and they buy so sparingly; that hardly a ripple on the surface of the market is created by their limited operations. One hundred cases will take in the entire week's sales. Very few sales of last year's goods are now made. The season may be said to be over. The packers ere now devoting their attention to dotting up the season's w ork. They are still running pretty full handed, but a few weeks more will see all their purchases cased. We have had very favorable weather during the past week, and the young plants have come along very rapidly. A few persons have already Bet out small patches, but planting will not become general for some time to come. Plants promise to be abundant nd the general outlook thus far is very promising. J. S. Gans' Son, tobacco broker, of 131 Water street New York, reports the following sales in that market: 300 cases i886 - '87Penna. seedleaf.... 10 15 120 " 1887 State Havana.... 13 ai6 loo j 1888 New England seedleaf.
