Young Clove loaded hot 1 u-ihh kindly attentions and rung' tho bell for tho maid, who .escorted tho girl to .her room. He had not brouthod .n syllabic to Lucy concerning his feelings about that letter. "1 am DOIT.}*, -Mr. Ashhmd," tic said, that I havo not the slightest memory about your brother. .1 suppose you have hoard ot my misfoi-Ume, and that will bo my explanation to you. .Hut 1 would be obliged if you would leave this matter in my hands, so that I may -make further inquiries on the subject. "fioorge Machine, Dick Asliland's neighbor," ho inuttorod to himself when tho yeoman was gone. "And .'Dick had found s'old and I was to help him get it And George Macland luis found trold, and Diek Ash- liind has never again been heard of, and I am here with four desperate wounds on my head." lie arose and walked up and down the room in a slow, measured, tramp. •'And Lucy," he continued in tremulous self-communication, "has had a desperate quarrel with her father and her cousin, and will not £ro near them, and will have nothing to do with them. .And Lucy is a good, true, honest girl—a .kindly, noble girl—who would not. leave her father without ample reason." The tramp up and down tho room be cam o faster, and a dark shadow settled on tho young' initn's brow. "1 can sec it all," he continued. "Lucy 'knows • something of this, and her father and cousin arc in it. only she is too true to them even now, and will say-,noshing- against them. If there's treachery in it, .-he : ll never .denounce them. And she's right of course,. Right and good as she always is. .She can't he expected to be a witness against her owii father. If.ever thu word 'brute' was written in a man's face, it i,s in (icorye MaclancV Dick Ashland!" he muttered. "Diclc Ashland!" The muscles of his handsome face contracted as if in pain. "God!" he exclaimed, "it is hard. Why can't I remember: 1 Why can't I remember?" Then, on a sudden, ho checked himself, and a look of stern determination took tho place of the anguish that had succedodit "I will remember," he cried. "I . will, remember." Ho stopped in front ot his table and rang tho bell. "Send at once a messenger to Sir .William Cuthbortson, in Mount -street," ho said to tho man who entered, "and tell him Lord (Uovo will call on him at twelve o'clock to-day." That being over, ho set to work arranging his papers with an air of quiet commonplace which proved the intensity of his desire. "I'll got at the bottom of tins," he said determinedly to himself.' "Sir William, shall operate ou mo as soon as ever ho will." CHAPTER VIII. "Holtons," South Kensington—generally known as "The Koltons"— was, in tho year of grace eighteen sixty, ono of tho fashionable localities of London. The Machines, desirous of mixing- with fashionable society in London, had chosen a house in ••The Boltons" for their 'habitation. London fashion and fashionables required a yearly renewal of tho .-upply of lions to their social men- ugorie. Now, real bi£ lions were scarca and often very shy; therefore, London fashion and fashionables had sometimes to content themselves with a wretched, starving semblance of the noble beast, and, as long- as a pretence was furnished by a lion's sivin and mane, London fashion und .fashionables wore often compelled to iynore that an ass's body was cov- •ored by a yellow hide. It must be confessed that London fashion and fashionables overlooked tho defects of tlieh- once caught lions with ready alacrity, and in the most amiable way threw dust in their own eyes by discovering- all sorts of virtues to which their newly-caught beivst cc. i-.ld lay but little claim, and by accepting upon the merest hearsay as irospel truth, arid by heralding' to tho world with trumpet blasts, every bubbled statement that could possibly bring it ofedit In the 'case of the Maclanes, tho ufl'oH.8 of London fashion and fashionables showed some portion of ' reason in their madness through tho fact that both- the Muclanes wore marriageable and were wealthy. Now a lion in fashion is a desirable beast. A wealthy lion becomes a. dream of loveliness*. Jiut a marriageable wealthy lion—ye gods and little fishes, where shall I liud adjectives and. adverbs sufficiently to portray the estimation in which he is held by Tyburnia, Belgravia, and Mayfalr? Many and various had been the assaults by maidens .and matrons upon thu single blessedness of George and Uuvid Haclano. High-born ladies vied with, one another to draw the lions their nets they were spreading for them. A* wo have C.HCU, no le.s«j a person than tho only •daughter »i tUe marquis 'of Gwoadale consented to link hot' name to that .of.the yourtf* American, and all went swimmingly' fb> poor Dick Asliland's assassins until they Wore frightened neitfly out of their sense's Dy their sudden meeting with Lord Clove. Even that dread had long ago van* ished. They'we're cognizant of the fact that Herbert had lost all trace of memory, and* the first shock of meeting with their victim beinjr past, they became quickly reassure:!, and, in the privacy of their own home, laughed at themselves for thus allowing thedselves to bo. frightened by a harmless bogey. Shortly after that they learned, not without trepidation, that Lucy was in London, residing with Lorcl Cleve. Lucy, thoy knew had kept her word, and had been as silent as tho grave in which Dick Asliland's bones wore resting. They debated with themselves whether or not they ought to go and' see her, but finally decided it was best to leave well alone. If Lucy wished to hold communioatiin with them she would have no difficulty in finding then? One day after luncheon, . they wore sluing over 'their fifth or sixth bottle oi champagne, when David •Machine, who between tho whiffs of a huge cigar, was reading "Albert Gate," suddenly put down his wood and dropped the paper on tho table in front of him in a breathless perturbation. "Waal," oxclaimecl George, "who's been made meat of now? Yew look that skcarod, one might think tho 'Rapahoes were after your top-knot." David Maclane for all reply pushed the paper toward his uncle. "I'll bo doggone if I can make yew out!" cried the latter. "I. guess yow've got to be such an elegant critter as yew cayn't speak no more, no- how. What's tho sign now?" "Tho sign's bad Injun', George," David replied wistfully. "It's demotion bad Injun', an its 'faooH blackened for war,' Head this an' I guess it'll give yew yewr stomachful, this day and to-morror, an' a good while to come. George Maclaiio cast a disdainful glance at his nephew. Ho took, up tho journal and his eyes fell immediately on tho following paragraph: "Our readers are probably aware that the young earl of Clove, whoso happy, return to England , we announced some time ago, has been suffering from pomploto loss of memory, the result of some ugly wound in tlie head. Lord Clove has placed himself under the care of Sir William Cuthbortson in tho hope that the great surgeon might be able to help him in recovering tho valuable mental faculty of which he has been deprived. All London will bo glad to learn that, about ten days ago, Sir William performed a most successful operation on his distinguished patient, arid that the young earl's power of memory is returning fast. There is no doubt whatever that, before a month is over it will bo com- j pletcly restored, and as the young- nobleman's career has been a most romantic one, though hitherto a closed book, even to himself, wo may expect some interesting recitals of tho thrilling incidents of his life in America—tho most interesting ono boiiiR' naturally the account' of the murderous conflict in which he received his terrible wounds." George Muelane dropped the paper, as his nephew had done before him, and gave a long, low whistle. "I guess yew'ro right, Dave," he said. "It's bad Injun—it's Injun on the war-path, an' powder runnin' denied short." "What are yew goin'. to cloP" the younger man asked. "Do!" exclaimed George, "What can wo do?" "If that young man remembers a hand stretch about Dick Ashland, an' himself, an' us, it will sarvo us to a few yards o' ropa apiece. It makes mo shiver to think of it." His face had gone ashen, and brought within discernible distance of man's justice, coward fear took possession of him. His teeth rattled and his limbs shook. "If that young man remembers!" George hissed disdainfully. Ho hit the table with his clenched fist, making the glasses jump and tho decanters rattle. His cruel little eyes glittered more ferociously than ever, and his tooth wore sat hard in relentless savagery. "Damnation!" he cried. "He mustn't remember—ho shan't remember! I guess we're not logs. We've got heads, haven't we? We've sot, eyes, haven't we? We've got hands, haven't wo? We've got money, haven't we? An' if we're to swing fur Dick Ashland, I reckon it won't matter much if we cut that young fellow's throat in the bargain to stop his jaw." "That ain't so easy, George," David answered tremulously. "Yew cayn't get at a man so smack heear as out in the Uockies. It's just a trifle bigg-er job to stop his jaw in this hole than if wo had him on the Sangro do Christo." "D—n it," viciously exclaimed the older ruttidn, "we've just got to do it, and the sooner we make up our minds and set to work about it the better." CHAPTER IX. The Muclanes had no difficulty in discovering the place whore Sir William Cuthfaertson had performed his operation and jsvhere his distinguished patient was slowly recovering. It was a pretty little cottage standing in a tiny walled garden on a sparsely-frequented road between Shopperton and Halliford-on-Tkames. A former owner had given it the fanciful name of "The .Nest." The place was within easy reach of London, and although, at a comparatively short distance, tike river teemeit with buoyant life and rayejry, along lane, ahaderl by huge el me and wild chestnuts, solitude was made musical only by the ftiaxhe"red>,songsters of the skies, and tho sou>rh of the leaves quivering with the summer breeze. The nearest habitation, a small house, usually let furnished during the boating season, was about five and twenty yards away, and occupied at tho time. Other residences, strewn here and there along tho road, wore hidden deep in park-liko grounds, and gave rise to no disturb* ing noises. The room in which Herbert was lying was situated on the ground iioor of the little cottage. It was spacious, and plainly, but extremely comfortably, furnished. The walls were painted a bluish stone gray, and no pattern of any kind attracted attention. There were no pictures on the walls, and the doors and windows were hung with curtains of a softly, dull-colored material.' The two big windows looked across a small, but beautifully kept, lawn on to a brick wall smothered with Virginia creeper. The sky-lino was nearly hidden by giant elms in the full wealth of their leafy green. All was simply harmonious—no violences of taste or shade shocked tho eye. It was homeliness and comfort made solid, and yet placed with such balmy rest as a mountain wilderness could scarcely surpass. Not a soul entered his room but the softly-spoken, gravo-visagod grey- headed attendant, who moved with a noiseless solicitude, and anticipated every want, his every wish. Tho hours seemed eternal, but his determination strengthened him and made his temporary loneliness loss bitter. All around him solemn silence reigned. His attendant moved stealthily like a cat, and no disturbing footfall reached his ear from anywhere. It was only at the rarest intervals that, the grating of wheels on tho soft clayey road outside became audible, or that a passer-by, more noisy than usual, intruded iipon his privacy by .the faint sounds of the snatch of a song. Lucy had succeeded in obtaining Sir William Cuthbortson's permission to live in the cottage with Herbert, upon the express condition that her presence should not be betrayed by sound or sign, that she should remain in the wing of tho house opposite to that where young Clove was stretched on his bod of pain. It can easily be guessed how gladly she consented to these conditions; she would havo. consented to any terms to bo allowed to remain near the man she loved so well. If there was one person in this- world who sincerely hoped and prayed for Herbert's cure, that person was Lucy Maclano; and yet no person in tho world—her father and cousin included, could havo more dreaded the fatal day when Herbert would be cured; when remembrance, fierce and relentless, would assert its sway, and ruthlessly dash away the curtain which she had woven at such a cost and under such severe trials. Her mind was stretched on the perpetual rack of the most terrible doubt, with but the faintest glimmer of hope piercing tho darkness that threatened. [TO UK CONTINUED.] A Youthful irinandoi*. He was a small boy, whoso head was about on a level with the grocery counter. He swung a tin pail in one hand and tightly clasped four pon- nios in the other. "Pleathe. thir, how much ith a pint of milk?" "Four cents." "Then ploatho give mo three thent' worth and a peppermint stick. My mother thaid I could have tho change, if there wath any, for candy, and she muth havo known there wouldn't bo any. It wathn't fair." And tho young financier walked gayly off with a large striped stick of candy and a very little milk splashing in the bottom of the pail. —Wisconsin. Not to Ills Tan to. British husbands, when their dinner parties turn out failures, are apt to grumble at their wives for the cook's misdemeanors, but they abstain from the practical style of rebuking practiced by the celestials. llocently tho Chinese professor at a university gave a national banquet to fellow professors and was much put out because the cookery was not to his taste.

Business of all kinds is hesitating until more can be determined about the future, and meanwhile orders which will keep hands at work for a time are given and accepted, this week increasing-, as in some others decreasing, without affording 1 reasonable indications of the future. Prices are sifi-ain greatly depressed, aa low or lower than ever having been made in wheat, silver and some manufactured products and neither cotton, wool, not raw iron has advanced. Tho glutted money markets continue to show that the volume of business is still inadequate, ,. to, employ the circultiLion available and the withdrawal ol about $00,000,000 from the New York market by the sale of government bonds does not cause thu expected strengthening of rates. With gradually decreasing- shipments of merchandise to other countries foreig-n exchange rises, and some exports of gold arc expected. The volume o^ domestic trade does not seem to increase. In all clearinghouse payments the decrease is 44.0 per cent for the week, against 37.8 foi the previous week, and about !17. 5 pel cent for the month thus far. Industrial changes have been few, but a little better demnnd for some textile goods has started more mills than have stopped. There is a bettci feeling- in fancy cottons, though some goods arc a .shade lower. Woolen dress goods are steady with fair demand, and though orders for heavy woolens and worsteds ai-e light they »rc a little better, some agents having made fair progress. Encoimig-emetit is felt by some in the calculation that clothiers have done about (10 per cent of the usual spring' business, while manufacturers have done about Si!,^ per cent, so that clothiers' stocks must be reduced. Prices of commodities now average about \\ per cent higher than a month ago, and, 'excepting'' this year, have never been as low on the whole as they are now. The faihires during- the last week numbered, in the United States. r-'SS, against 193 last year, and in Canada r> I. , agoinst 37 last year. Both in number and in magnitude commercial disasters have diminished, and in tho first half of February the liabilities thus far reported of all firms failing amounted to only $3,310,098, of which $3,070,84f> were of manufacturing and $-t,">r>0,:t7fi of trading- concerns.

Tho Boston Corgregatirmalist devotes an enthusiastic column to Mr. Jackson's historical story, "The Son of a Prophet," in which it says: "We da not hesitate to rank this story in respect to both interest and power with 'Ben Hur'and 'The Prince of India.' It resembles them, especially the lor- mer, so much that the reader recalls them at once, and that must needs DC a remarkable work which does not suffer by such a suggested comparison. But this one does not suffer." The Church Standard, of Philadelphia, says "the purpose of the book is noble and its execution very good indeed. The story, considered simply as a story, is deeply interestiusr. We wish there were more like it." Houghton, Mifllin &Ca, Publishers, Boston, Mass. Messrs. Harper & Brothers have just published some notable books, amon;> them a most interesting geological study entitled "Some Salient Points in the Science of the Earth," by Sir J. William Dawspn, C. M. O., LL. D.,etc author, of "Science in Bible Lands,' "The Earth and Man," "The Origin ol the World," etc. In the preface Mie author states that the work "is intended as a closing deliverance on some of the more important questions cf geology, on the part of a veteran worker, 'conversant in his younger days with those giants of the last generation, who, in the heroic agfi of geological science, piled up the mountains on which it is now the privilege of tl.eir successors to stand." The volume contains forty-six illustrations. Speaking of Miss Jewell's "Deephaven," the London Spectator says it ia a record of a delightful summer spent by two young ladies at a New England fishing- village named Deephaven. "There is no story and—delightful variety on the common run of little volumes—no love making. Not a single young man appears on the scene, and the book is amazingly improved by t(ae omission.

"Pink 1?lllB for Pale People" have been recently Supplemented by the cases of two'Conflrfned invalids in one household in. a New Enp-land towti. The names of those people are Fred C. Vose, his-wife n.nd his mother- in-law, Mrs. Oliver €. Molt, of Peter- tooro, members.of the same household. To the Uerahl reporter who was sent to investigate his remarkable cure Mr. Vose said: "I. am, 37 years old, and have been railroading for the Fitchburg iot IS years. Since boyhood I have been troubled with a weak atom* ach. For the past seven years I have suffered terribly and constantly. My stomach would not retain food', my head ached constantly and vvassodizzy I could-scarcely stand; my eyes were blurred; .1 had » bud. heartburn, and my breath waa offensive. 1 had physicians, but they failed me. My appetite gave out, and four years ago I developed palpitation of the heart, which seriously atSected my breathing. Had terrible pains in my back and had to make water many times a day. I finally developed rheumatic signs and couldn't sleep nights^ If 1 lay down, my heart would go- pit-a-pat at n great rate, and many nights I did not close my eyes at all I was broken down in body and discouraged in spirit, when some time in February last, I got a couple of boxes of Dr. Will'ams' Pink Pills. Before I had finished the first box I noticed that the palpitation of my heart, which had bothered me so that 1 couldn't bienthe at times, began to improve. 1 saw that in going to my home on the hill from the depot, which was previously an awful task, my heart did not beat so violently and I had more breath when I reached the house. After the second and third boxes I grew better in every other respect. My stomach became stronger, the' gas belching was not so bad, my appetite and digestion improved, and my sleep became nearly natural and undisturbed. I have continued taking the pills three times a day ever since last March, and to-day I am feeling better than at any time during the lust eight years. lean confidently and conscientiously say that they have done mo more cood, ' and their good effects are more ^permanent, than any?medicine I-haveever taken. My rheumatic pains in legs and hands are all gone. The pains in the small of my back, which were so bad at timss that I couldn't stand tip straight, have nearly all vanished, and I find my kidneys are well regulated by them. This is an effect not claimed for the pills in the circular, but in my case they brought it about. I am feeling :10() per cent, better in every shape and mariner." '• The reporter next sr,w Mrs. Holt, who said: "I am ,17 years old, and for 14 years past I have had an intermittent heart trovvbJe. Three years ago 1 had nervous prostration, by whicb tn£ heart trxyible was increased so badly that \ lia'l to lie clown most' of the tir&e.

I have taken the pills since February, with the result oJ stopping entirely the pain in the spine and in t ; he region of the liver. My stomach is again normal, and the palpitation of the heart has troubled me but three times since I commenced the pills."
