HARTWOOD'S GAME. Lord Ilartwood prkTetl himself f.poii his strength of character. His daughters said t h a t he was ns obstinate us a iniilu. His neighbors privately opineil that a more pighea.'l. ed elderly gentlenun had not liceii seen on earth i n r e c n n t times. These were all different ways of saying the same thing--that when the noble e:irl had onco niado up his miiKi to a certain course he was more difficult to turn than a rusty wind lass. Of this trait no oiie should liavo been better aware t h a n his dik\«t KOM, Lord Fawiiton, who had hud excellent opportunities of stiulyiii" the parental character for a q u a r t e r of a century or so. Not the least curious part of the whole story, however, was I hat it all came a.s u surprise to him. When he first hlippci off the narrow line of conduct w h i c l his father had marked out for h i m , by implication if not by actual pro cept, it had never occurrod to hi7ii that this d e r a i l m e n t w o u l d be more than n temporary episode. It wculi be easy enough, ho t h o u g h t , to ret u r n at any time to t h u iron route ol filial obedience and to condone t h e omissions of t h o past by lavish uoti formance in the iutnre. A bahuico would thereby bo struck and the Life journey continue w i t h o u t prejudice, as the lawyers say, on each side. lu which uoiiclusjmi.lie forgot two important factors--first, t h a t it is one t h i n g to return from a h u s k gathering excursion alone, but quite mother to propose to bring w i t h you a fellow pa:;sengor, and, secondly, hie father's most salient characteristic. Now, Lord Fawn ton's proposal to marry Mrs. Sain ton interfered Ois- ns-tvoiifc'Iy with his parent's pet phiu. This was to unite the lauds of Crock ,'astle to those of Hurt wood, with which they "marched" for miles, by lie marriage of his heir to t h e only child and heiress of old George Jar- jnntoste, who had made a fabulous 'orttino out of pa tint floorcloth and tad sunk a portion of it iu the pur- of Crock from the Ilornbys, xho had owned it for centuries. When, therefore, Lord Fawntou, ifter sowing a f a i r crop uf wildcats, umounced his intention of marry ng a Mrs. Sainton, tho widow of an udiau ofiker, who was a few yeui't ilder t h a n himself and possesHed a mall pension wliich would die w i t h ier. Lord llartwoo.i, ex diplum.iti.--t hough he was, (lew into a violeiil ·age. "Understand thisl" ho shouted, dmost foaming at the m o u t h . "1 vill not hear it. I will be no party o it in any way, · ]f you marry t h i s vonian, not oi.'e of the f a m i l y shall present i:t the wedding. I v i l l lever receive her. You sh.ill not lave one penny w h i l e I live, and. hough I can't i n t e r f e r e w i t h t h e en- ail--worse luck!--1 will leave every jther penny t h a t I possess to the iris. Now you know, and you had jetter lot her know, too, and suo if ho w i l l t a k e you on 1he r :e terms." Mrs. Clinton was the typical emme a t r e n t e ane. She- knew life ml was a past mistress in the art of nanaging men, India is au excel- eut school in \\ hich to pursue these tudies, and when one is badly l e f t " proficiency iu t h e m comes in seful. Sho was undoubtedly hand-' om e. When FaWuton explaiued tu her, ising a certain discretion in .style. he scene which had taken place be- ween his f a t h e r and himself, she aw at onco t h a i t h e position was 'Xtrenu-ly serious. It dumtuulud the xercise of far ir.ore tact and a great- rconnnaud of s t r a t e g y t h a n F a w n on was capable of. It was [r.ii't of ier creed t h a t she- could get round ny man if sho could onl} 1 get al lim. Therefore slie was bunt on vinning Lord flartwood over. Of ourse if this programmetibsolutely ailed thero would bo nothing for it ut to marry in delianco of h i m , and : the horrid old man pcisisted iu lis threat of cutting off supplies-veil. Fawiiton could easily raise noney on his prospects. This would ie horiibly expeusive, especially if iie father lived long, and it was not iy any means the plan rfl.c would rave preferred, but it was not likely iiat she was going to give up such chance simply to please a bad tempered elderly gentleman, or that, nee married, she would bo content o remain iu poverty when she ught to be living in affluence. She did riot speak so plainly to 'awuton. She affected" to be quito vercome by his news and bemoan- d the unhappy f a t e which made her cause of strife between father and on. ' I t does not make a bit of difl'er- nco to me," protested Fnwivton toutly. "You are the one woman u the world to me, and 20 fathers vouldn't make any difference i" "Dearest hoy," sha said tenderly, but I must think it over. After all, athers have been harsh before now nd have conie round in the long nn. Let me see if I cannot think of ome plan." "What n head you havel" said 'awnton in admiration. "Why. I . believe t h a t if the governor could come across you incog., as it were, without knowing who you were, he , would bo so fascinated that he would ; withdraw all his opposition at once. " | It was with an affectionate smile | that Mrs. Sainlon received tho caress I of Inn- y o u t h f u l lover, but at that I m o m e n t s-h-j was a prey to the dis- ' q u i e t i n g t h o u g h t t h a t all her valued cleverness and experience hud riot enabled her to hit off so promising a scheme as this which her "far f r o m clever" swain had flashed out without a nunnout's thought and but lit tie appreciation. "I dare say I shall think of thing, dear," she observed sweetly for it would not do to lot him think her brain was not equal to an; emergency. She believed that sh held him half at least by his belie iu her superior cleverness. How it exactly happened will nev er be known, for Mrs. Saiuton wa essentially an opportunist, not prom to reveal hor plans aud ready t graf-p all that was iu her favor as the direct result of her own farsight ed methods. One t h i n g is quite certain -- that Mr. Combermere was an old fiiend and admirer of hers, one who was far too clever to allow hei to marry him foi his 11101163', anc yot had a confused kind of sympathy and pity for her which made him ready to do her a good turn when she appealed to h i m ; also that Mrs Saintou had no scruples about asking for a favor if she thought thai that was the surest way to obtain it. Moreover, Mr. Combermere was quite above any dog in the manger- is h form of petty jealousy and cert a i n l y did not grudge Lord Fawn- ton the prizo which ho had purposely abstained from himself. There fore when ho i n v i t e d the lady to tho luncheon 'party which be gave in the city on Lord Mayor's day to see tho procession and did not request the further pleasure of the company of her fiance it may be assumed that he was acting strictly in accordance w i t h Mrs. Hain ton's wishes. What actually happened was this: Lord Hni-twood, who had known Mr. Combprmere for years and \va3 n regular guest at this entertainment, found himself planted between two .ladies, one of w h o m was a typical stout dowager, while the other was a good looking, youngish woman of decidedly s m a r t and attractive ap pearancy. Lord Hart wood had been a gay dog in his y o u t h , and he ret a i n e d a good deal of the Lothario in hi: : widower h/iod. Perhaps that was why he did uot marry again. He " w e n t for" t h e younger ludy. II o found out t h a t bis anticipa- lious were not balked. The stranger was lively, a n i m a t e d and disposed to be both entertained and entertaining. Whereupon the old gentleman bristled up all his feathers, t h o u g h t himself q u i t e young again and thoroughly enjoj'ed himself. Of course, however, the inevitable solf i n t r o d u c t i o n followed. "Oh, dear," cried the lady, with a clever lit llo moue ol pretended dismay, "to t h i n k tlrut you should be Lord Hart wood! Why, I am Mrs. Saintoii. '' Lord Hartwood in turn waa evidently startled. "The l.idy whom my young cub" -- "Ye.s -- whom you" -There was a moment's silence. "How u n l u c k y ! ' ' murmured Mrs. Sainton quito pathetically. "And I was just going to ask you to call." Confound the young cub!" said the father testily. "I was just about Lo ask your permission. " Thero was another brief silence. i'Miiht i l be war to tho knife?" inquired Mrs. Sainton in her softest and most appealing tones, with t h a t u p w a r d glance through her eyelashes wliich sho regarded as her most effective weapon. "Can't you come and tee uio as a friend? J couldn't marry your son without your consent -- now -- and you might :iml mo different from what you expected." "I lind you charming as a friend," Hiiid Lord Hartwood slowly and do- ibcratcly. "As a friend I could not to find you different iu any 1 can quite understand my s o u s i n f a t u a t i o n . What I cannot understand i« -- pardon me -- how you can throw yourself away on a cub like that." "You mustn't say that," replied :ho lady, w i t h reproving eyes. Then she turned theso orbs to the ground md, w i t h n l i t t l e sigh, continued, 'And so I suppose we can't be Irieiidb." U n l i k e Mrs. Doinboy, Lord Hartwood eo u M make an efitort. "Let u.-i swear a truce for six noutlis, " lie said. "I will suspend You will delay your e a n w h i l o wt w i l l bo w h o k n o w s -- Only to see you my cub-- I ·neau Fawnton-- must not be there."

She learned in this way that he drove a coach, which was tantalizing, for he did uot invite her, and she knew why. He gave her to understand that ho had absolute control of the greater part of tho property and t h a t as tho old entail had expired the existing entail only covered tho dower house and Fnwuton, excluding Hartwood Castle. She very soon perceived, moreover, that he was master of his own f a m i l y , that the girls were mere ciphers and that Lord Fawnton's wishes and opinions were of no ac count whatever if they ran counter to those of his father. Mrs. Sainton meditated deeply over this extraordinary friendship. There was not tho smallest sign that Lord Hartwood was disposed to relent. She caught him up once and inquired: "But why could not I go as you friend nlso?" He shrugged his shoulders like a Frenchman. "Because, fair lady, no one would believn it. They would say t h a t was ;i formal recognition of--yoi understand." She understood only too well. "Then you nro still determined?' she said sullenly. "More determined than ever Then it was because I did not con sidor the match suitable to him now it is because I don't think it suitable for you. You m i g h t do much better. You might marry man of more suitable age, who is not dependent on any one, who worships the ground you tread on and would front every wish of yours as a command from the throne." It was impossible to misunderstand his meaning. Mrs. Sainton': usually cool head began to grow hot and her brain dizzy. The prospect on the one side was so brilliant that it darkened tho other. "Then why doesn't ho ask me?" murmured, and the palpitation of her breast showed the depth of her emotion. "Because that engagement stands between. If that wero onco at end"-I will break it off 1" she cried abruptly. "1 was a fool 1 I did not know my own mind, and I did not know yon then. You have made me see things so differently. Of course lio is a inero boy compared to me." That very day Mrs. Sainton sat down and wrote to Lord Fawiiton bow it had been borne in unto her Ihat she had no right to cause strife between father and son, aud her conscience would uot allow her to do any longer. She therefore had decided to release him from his eu- ngement.and, while sho would ever bo bis friend and wish him well, she t h o u g h t it better that they should lot meet for some time. Lord Fawn ton was in despair at her letter. He wrote in the most mpassioued strain begging her to recall her words and see him once noro to plead his cause. She replied riofly, asking him not to write to her agnin. Then he informed his f a t h e r that nil was over and that ho proposed to :ravel for awhile. To which Lord 3artwood replied: "Certainly. Draw on me for what on w a n t . and let me know about my introductions." Mrs Sainton had expected Lord Inrtwood to fly to her side immedi- tely. Several days passed, and ho lid not appear. She wrote to him chiding him gently. In reply she received the following note: "The Earl of Hartwood presents Lis compliments to Mrs. Sainton md, understanding from his sou hat she lias broken off her eugage- nent, is q u i t e at a loss to seo any ·eason for an interview." Then it was that Mrs. Saintou re- nembercd t h a t Lord Hartwood had jeeu a diplomatist. But when Lord Fawiiton, in obedi- alee to his father's prompting, pvo- icsed to Miss Jargontoste sho reused him, telling him plainly that he did not intend to bo merely a luttress to ti great house.

Tho story of tho outbreak has never been told with such clearness ns at one of our conferences. "There were assembled at Piue Ridge agency in December, 1S90, n few days prior to the Wounded Knee buttle, several government officers aud tho Kiynksa war chief Little Wound, now leading chief of the Sioux Nation. Little Wound was asked if he blamed the agont for the coming of the soldiers to stop tho ghost dance. He answered 'No' and then said: " 'My friends, over 60 winters have passed over my head. I am too old to dance. Now that you have asked me about this thing I will tell you. The holy men have for many years been telling us- that ages and ages ago you white people became very wicked.. You. lost the rignt road and denied your Great Spirit. Ho finally took pity on you nnd sent his «on from thu happy hunting grounds to snvo you and bring you back and show you the way to livo. He was called tho Messiah. Wo are told that he lived with you over M years and worked hard to savo yon from your wickedness, b u t you had lost your ear?.

You threw him away from you and finally nailed him upon u great wooden cross, stuck a apeiir iu his side and killed him, and ho returned to tho happy h u n t i n g grounds with a tired heart. It was told nt tho time that he would come again some time nnd that when ho did come the hearts of the people would bo good. That would mean plenty to eat, and there would be no more war. '"A few moons ago a young northern Cheyenne wnirior came to us. He said he had come after many days' journey from the far west; that near n groat lake shore he had mot the Messiah, a tall white man with golden hair and beard, blue eyes and a good tongue. He said he had again been so sent hy the Great Spirit; that all the people would be happy now, for the Great Spirit had taken pity on the world; thero would be no more war; the Imfifalo would come back, and we would be persecuted no more, but would all ]?v together, and when the green grass came in the spring he would visit tho different tribes of men and teach them how to live. But he said that many people had denied him, and at last killed him. Now he had arranged cevtain signs and a dance by which, whou he should come to a tribe, he would know whether they would receive him. Those signs he tmight to the Cheyenne and told him to teach the people. " 'Now, whether this old story of the holy man and what the Cheyenne told us is true I do not know, but I got my young men together aud told them that if it was a good thing we should have it, but if it was not it would fall to tho ground itself, and I told them to learn this dance, so thai if the -Messiah does come he will not pass us by. My friends, this is all we know about tho Messiah and the ghost dance.' After a few moments the old chief turned to me and said: " 'You lived with us many years. Wa trust you.

A few flays later came the battle of Wounded Kneo, resulting in the death of 2 officers aud-35 men of the regular army ami 145 Indians.

"Drowning is n pleasant death" is ruiiiiirk Gonstantly made by thoso who never gulped down salt water nto the delicate tissues of their lungs, As n lad I was bathing in rough weather on the bench of a watering place in northern France, says Arnold \Alrite in Cassel's Family Magazine. Swept out to sea, I struggled, sank, became insensible and ivas saved by the coiirago and skill of i gallant Frenchman, who wroto his name that day iu my mother's New Testament as a memorial of the res- CHO. This was all. The circumstances were ordinary. A thousand such may occur. Psychologically, lowever, there are points of interest vhich arise principally from the act that I remember all that hivp- jeueil during n period of time which nay havo been four or live minutes, but which appeared to bo as many and the dreaded stream of bic.- rose to tho surface. A few woclcs before I had watched tho drowning of a cat in tho clear water of a running stream. The animal was tethered to a stone aud had fought with upturned face for liberty. When the bubbles rose in a silver fountain from the corners of its- mouth, it stood at the bottom swaying in the gentle current, turned over, and, after one filial struggle, gave up the ghost. This scene came vividly before me. I thought of this wretched cat, and was half amused to think that iny caso was the case of the cat. There was no fear; the actual circumstances filled my attention, aud the piteous longing to escape and the inability of my efforts suddenly became subordinated to the feeling of intolerable pain. Eyes, chest, limbs, were all one solid pain. Just then I touched the sandy bottom with my fingers and, knee, and hastily snatched a handful of sand and water to thrust in my mouth to end this struggle for air. All I wanted was to end the pain. No thought of death, except ns an interesting and immaterial factor in the situation, came over me. It is true that I remembered that I should bo missed when dinner time came and I was found missing, and thinking of the home peoplo I thought of a blue tie I had loft on a chest of drawers in my bedroom, which I had intended to put on. Then, suddenly, I found my eyes above water for a second, and I saw two blurred figures near. On this I sank again and was conscious of relaxing effort and sinking out of a conscious state to one in whioh ono dreamed without knowing what the dreams were. From this I awoke in great pain in the center of a crowd on the beacb, whither my rescuer had borne me. Klondike Mill's Keren**. Many amusing incidents occur in the Klondike camps from time to time. The latest was on Swift Water Bill. Bill was in love with a girl. She jilted him. The next morning he was sitting in a restaurant waiting for breakfast. The woman entered. She ordered eggs. Before the waiter got to the kitchen Bill called him over and said: "How many eggs have you got in the houses" . _· "About 300." "What are they worth?" "A dollar apiece." "I will take every egg in tho house. See that not one escapes.." The eggs were brought and the money weighed out.

On leaving Gleyre's studio, he and his friends, Du Maurier, Lamont and Thomas Armstrong, set up one for themselves in the Hue Notre- Dame-des-Champs, which is the very studio immortalized hy Du Maurior in "Trilby."

Impressed with this latter assumption, he determined to send his ladylove a big chrysanthemum. In order that there might be no mistake as to the donor he sent this explanatory note with it: "Deer miss, I send you my luve, together with this --as I cant spel it I will send you a rose insted." Which was rather a neat way out of it for a 9-year-old, adds the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
