MAt.T&BE CliOSS'. looking 1 Surely DUE portrait? a, gloomy- villain t he needed a priest to shrive his soull" Dolores laughed, T<rhile the features pi the cavalier in the portrait had never appeared so somber. , The hall was lighted by the feeble ray of a small lamp placed in a lantern of open ironwork, and possibly the picture gathered additional heavy shadows from the insufficient illumination. Certainly the knipht now wore a most lowering and threatening mien. Dolores stood before Lieutenant Curzon in her rose-colored frock, with her mother's black lace mantilla thrown over her head. Her dark eyes sparkled like stars in anticipation of the pleasure in store. The source of so much happiness, the handsome officer, could not be expected to appreciate, with his more obtuse, masculine faculties, the exquisite satisfaction with which she extended to him, in greeting, a little hand encased in a pink glove of extraordinary delicacy and fineness of texture. What better use could be made of the new gloves of the .Signorina Melita than to applaud, her with fingers clothed in them on the occasion of her debut? "Ho vv lovely you are to-night!" whispered the'young ma n, gazing at her, and holding fast her two hands in liis' own.""•"•-.••-.-T--—••;";"•;-;-;-•';-.-•-; -------Dolores made a .little movement of withdrawal, which resembled the curving aside of the neck of the pigeons, and softly released the precious gloves from too close a pressure. "Dolores, will you wear this for my sake?" He drew a small, gold cross of the Maltese form from a box, with a slendor cord attached. She bent toward him to inspect the contents o± the box with eager curiosity. "Oh, yes!" •"Will you wear it to-night, and always?" . „ ... ' "Yes! How beautiful it is!" with delight. They were a silent party, save for an occasional, cheerful remark on the t>art of the young man. Was not the stillness of Dolores eloquent of a mute ecstasy of anticipated pleasure? His hand once more sought and clasped that of the girl, concealed by the folds of her dress. The meditations of Jacob Dealtry remained unfathomed. He sat erect, and the shafts of light in the casements of houses passed by the vehicle fell oft a gray and rigid visage. What motive had induced him to consent to emerging into the world of his fellow-creatures, like an owl or a night-moth? Arthur Curzon asked himself the question with secret amusement and contempt. The hope of getting gain was obvious. They reached their destination. Dolores uttered a sigh of bewilderment and satisfaction as she sprang out of the carriage and entered the theater. Possibly she remembered, at the moment, the invitation of the singer to seek "the stage door on this auspicious occasion. Captain Fillingham was wandering about the corridor, helplessly, followed by his energetic wife. "If there has been a mistake about our seats, John, dear, we must take the best we can find," remarked the good lady, philosophically. "Of course, it is is an abominable shame." "I can neither hear nor see in that corner," fumed the Ancient Mariner. "I will go home." At this juncture Arthur Curzon met and paused to greet the couple. "They have sold our seats twice over," said Mrs. Fillingham. The lieutenant urged their acceptance of a place in his box. They willingly consented to the opportune• proposition, and were installed in a good loge of the first tier, already tenanted by Jacob Dealtry and his grandchild. A trifle disconcerted by this unfor- seen denouement, Mrs. Fillingham soon resigned herself to the fate of being provided with the best chair, while fully giving the appearance of acting as a chaperone to Dolores. Lieut. Curzon established himself near Dolores. His face wore a resolute An excellent plftfl," assented the manager, femtfothly. "A debutante could do no better, my dear. Fix your attention on that pretty girl, and see nobody else, frot that 1 have the slightest apprehension about your success, Melita. "ton are in splendid voice, and the debut down here ia simply practice." The pupil made a little, mocking salutation to the audience beyond the curtain, and retired to her dressing- room to prepare for the ordeal in store for her. Dolores, the innocent Psyche, object of these diverse reflections, sat in her box, admiring the novel scene about her. In place of the solitary oil lamp burning in the hall of the Watch Tower before the portrait of the Knight Of Malta, a chandelier which seemed to be a cone of jewelled light, sparkled and flashed with a wide- spreading effulgence that filled the SERVED IN TWO WAM f HE CRIP ALMOST WON WHERE tHE BULLEf On* Stmpathtaa AiffrSyi fenlUtid Itt thft Infirmities at the Veteran. PASSr*5ftf S tWO- expression, as of a man who has taken a decision and intends to hold his ground. Capt. Fillingham and Jacob Dealtry occupied the rear of the box. Mrs. Griffith and Miss Symthe took their places on the other side of the house. Arthur Curzon did not quit his post. The two ladies responded rather coolly to the greeting of Mrs. Fillingham, who grew red, and lopked uncomfortable. The matron's responses to the talk of Dolores was dry "What an extraordinary infatuation!" said Mrs. Griffith, with an inflection of scorn in her mellow voice. Miss Symthe adjusted the bracelet on her wrist The trinket was made with cruel, little spiked ornaments. She laughed a trifle 'bitterly. "I fancy your cousin will get over it," she replied, coldly. -'Such passions are apt to be transient." "Let us hope so," sighed Mrs. Griffith, who found all her matrimonial schemes frustrated unexpectedly by the headstrong perversity of her young kinsman. "He will scarcely marry the Mal- hpuse. Dolores revelled in a lavish profusion of light The curtain, behind Which the singer was, at the moment, surveying' her judges, was an enchant* ing picture to be studied, terraCBj blue lake, villa, and mountain background, with a volcanic sky. Then there were the ladies of the ball, Mrs. Griffith and Miss Symthe, who studiously avoided meeting her frank glance of recognition. Such coldness failed to wound her sensibilities. No doubt they had forgotten her by this time. She stole a look at the grand duke, surrounded by the group of officers in rich uniform, and it seemed to her that he returned the gaze with kindness. Perhaps men were more kind than women, Dolores reasoned, for even Mrs. Fillingham made snubbing rejoinder if she addressed to the chaperone a timid question. She recognized the Eusatti family in the space below with sudden malice and amusement. Doctor Busatti was talking with a young woman, while his parents regarded him with complacency. Evidently they were an engaged couple. The absence of the physician from the Watch Tower was thus explained. Did Dolores care? She had not thought of Giovanni Battista of late, and now his value may have increased with his evident loss. She felt like the cat suddenly deprived of the plump mouse that runs away. Ah, how ugly and yellow was the affianced bride! If the doctor would only turn his head, she would bestow upon him a sweet salutation. But Giovanni Battista, the prudent man, kept his attention fixed on the swathy damsel by his side. The short upper lip of Dolores curled scornfully, and her eyes flashed with a vengeful gleam. The next moment she turned to Arthur Curzon with softest humility of gratitude beaming beneath her silky eyelashes, and touched, without apparent intention, the Maltese cross on her breast. "You will always wear it, Dolores?" he whispered in her ear. "Always," was the no less fervent response. "I will use it at prayers instead of the crucifix." From Woodstock, Va... Herald. There Is an old soldier in Woodstock, Va., who served in the war with Mexico and in the war of the rebellion, Mr. lievl Mclnturff. He passed through both these wars without a sefloufl wound. The hardships, however, told Seriously on him. for when the grip attacked him four years ago it nearly killed him. Who can look on the infirmities of a veteran without a feeling of the deepest sympathy? His townspeople saw him confined to his house so prostrated with great nervousness that he could not hold a knife and fork at the table, scarcely able to walk too, and as he attempted it, he often stumbled and fell. They saw him treated by the best talent to be had— but still he suffered on for four years, and gave up finally in despair. One day, however, he was struck by the account of a cure which had been effected by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He immediately ordered a box and commenced taking them. He says he was greatly relieved within three days time. The blood found its way to his fingers and his hands which had been palsied assumed a natural color, and he was soon enabled to use his knife and fork at the table. He hag recovered his strength to such art extent that he is able to chop wood, shock corn and do his regular work about his home. He now says he can not only walk to Woodstock, but can walk across the mountains. He is able to lift a fifty-two pound weight with one hand and says he does not know what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done for others, but knows that they have done a great work for him. He was in town last Monday, court day, and was loud in his praises of the medicine that had given him so great relief. Mr. Mclnturf is willing to make affidavit to these facts. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills were used for many years by an eminent practitioner who produced the most wonderful results with them, curing all forma of weakness arising from watery blood or shattered nerves, two causes of almost every ill to which flesh Is heir. The pills are also a specific for the troubles peculiar to females, such as suppressions, all forms of weakness, chronic constipation, bearing down pains, etc., and in the case of men will jflve speedy relief and effect a permanent cure in all cases arising from mental worry, overwork; or excesses of whatever nature. They are entirely harmless and can be given to weak and Blckly children with the greatest good. Pink Pills are sold by all dealers, or will be sent post paid on receipt of price, (50 ceri's a box, or six boxes for $2.60—by addressing Dr. Williams' Medicine Company, Schenectady. N. T. ftnd lta.114* ftepr*8etttfttl**» tt*J> Go Home. Washington, March 22.—Uncle Sam has evidently gone into the recalling of foreign ministers by the wholesale, for it is understood his latest victim in this 1 respect is the Spanish minister, Senor Don E. de Muruaga. Strictures by the Spanish envly regarding the course pur- Sued by Secretary Gresham and the administration in regard to the Alllanca case are assigned as the reason for asking his recall, an intimation of which has been conveyed to the American minister of Madrid. The muddle with the Spanish minister recalls the fact that the secretary of state has also recently had to "call down" the representative of the Italian government for being too hasty about telegraphing to the governor of Colorado regarding the lynching of Italians at Denver, Colo. Marquis Imperial! of the Italian legation made himself a little too officious at the state department in this matter, and the announcement is made that he is to return to his native Italy.

London, March 20.—The ninety-first anniversary of the birth of Neil Dow, the great American temperance reformer, was celebrated last evening in the Western church, Hlghgate, this city.

March 21.—The famous stallion Ralph Wilkea (206%), owned by Col. John E. and Bayard Thayer, Is dead. The Thayer brothers had refused $75,000 for him. Ralph Wilkes had a remarkable record, except in one Instance winning everything he ever started for. Association of All Ex-Slaves. Atlanta. 'Ga., I March 122.—The ex- slaves of Atlanta are preparing to organize an association to which none of the latter-day negroes will be admitted. After the association has been organized it is Intended to have state associations and then take in all the old time negroes of all the slavehold- Ing states. Let me 'fasten the cord around your ^hroat >then." She put aside the folds of the lace mantilla vvonderingiy, even a trifle awestruck at so much good fortune. He dallied with the task, thrilled by contact with silky tendrils of curling hair and softly rounded neck. Suddenly ho stooped and brushed her cheek with his lips. Dolores trembled and was &ilent. The voice of Jacob Dealtry became audible behind them, dry grating, and unsympathetic, like the note of certain insects. "You can see the inscribed tablet on the day after to-morrow," •Ah? You must decipher it for me, Mr. Dealtry," Lieut. Curzon answered lightly, 'but he was destined not to study the Phoenician characters for many a day later. Jacob Dealtry extinguished the lamp, leaving the knight of the portrait gaaing down, blankly, on a deserted interior, and the whimpering, disconsolate Flow as guardian of the premises, and locked the door of the Watch Tower. "I hope you may not flnd y° u *' ap e ™< a fool's errand," he remarked, testily, as the trio traversed, the shadowy gar» deps and emerged on the highway. YPU are very good. tP go, Mr, Dealtry," said the officer, gaily, »»Yqur graiaddaughter is very fond of music. " ' implores? Tut, young to JWQW tese," hazarded Miss Symthe, with an oblique glances at Dolores. "Scarcely," echoed Mrs. Griffith, meditatively. "The girl may be very artful, of course, and lead him on." "Those creatures are usually artful," assented Miss Symthe, with an irrepressible tremor of emotion shaky, the curtain rose, and the opera commenced. The piece was, on the whole, well mounted, and II Barbiere a jolly personage in good condition. The prima donna was politely welcomed by a large and sympathetic audience. She was manifestly nervous, 1 and self-conscious to an embarrassing degree, yet possessed a cultivated voice of unusual compass and flexibility. Mr. Brown, who had quite exhausted a large vocabulary of injurious epithets under his breath, at a critical moment, when to his prac- tised eye she seemed about to break "Winter in Switzerland. Who would dream of rational beings, except under dire compulsion, going to spend the winter at a place twice as high above the sea-level as the summit of Helvellyn? writes a correspondent. Yet here at St. Moritz, six thousand feet above the §ea, in one. hotel are 225 ladies and gentlemen, mpstly English, but some from the other "side of the Atlantic, and several from sunny Naples itself. Switzerland, long the playground, is now 'be- conrng, in Us upland valleys, the hospital and convalescent home of the world. For six weeks we have had perfect weather—skies as blue as those of Italy, and lakes whose deep" indigo sunshine during the day, so that I personally found a broad-brimmed Jamaica straw jat with a puggaree, the only head-dress in which I could with comfort sit out of doors. At night tLe thermometer usually goes down to near the zero of Fahrenheit. For a fortnight we had the most lovely skating—skating under absolutely idyllic conditions—combining the charm of an Italian summer with the delights of a Canadian winter. The most suitable costume in which to skate in this glorious sunshine is literally your shirt sleeves. But the Are Opposed to Annexation. St. Johns, N. F., March 22.—The An- tlconfederatlon league held a public meeting in British hall last night. Four thousand persons were present. George Knowllng acted as chairman. Resolutions were adopted requesting the government to refuse to send delegates to Canada. Washington, March 22.—Great Sritaltl must show Its hand in regard to Nicaragua, according to the tenor of a communication made to hef majesty's government yesterday by Secretary Qresh- am. It was set forth that statements had been made to the effect that a demand had been made upon the Central American republic for an indemnity. Itt the event that Nicaragua declined to accede to this demand the "United States wants to know just what England purposes to do. There was no beating about the bush, but a straightforward easily interpreted document was cabled across the water to Ambassador Bayard with instructions to lay the matter before the proper authorities. Minister Guzman has not received any intimation from the Nicaraguan government that England has made the demand reported, and consequently at the legation it is asserted there is no foundation foi* such a story. All the evidence at the disposal of the Nicaraguan minister is to the effect that Mr. Hatch, in whose behalf the claim for damages is being made, was never connected in any manner with the English consulate at Managua. After their expulsion Hatch and his English colleagues went to tHe mother country, and it was expected that woxild be the last they would be heard of in Central America. Subsequently, however, while the Americans who had been caught with Hatch were adjusting matters in connection with their business a general amnesty was proclaimed, and under the provisions of this act it was unnecessary for them to leave Nicaragua, as the Englishmen had done. Consequently they took up business at the same old stand, and the Englishmen could have done so, too, had they remained in Nicaragua. During all these proceedings there was not even a suggestion that Mr. Hatch represented Great Britain either as a-proconsul or in any other diplomatic capacity. Under these circumstances the members of the Nicaraguan legation do not see how Great Britain can possibly have an equitable claim for damages against their government. Ice in the Missouri Breaks. Sioux City, Iowa, March 22.—The ice of the Missouri river has broken up and the river is open as far north as Pierre., An enormous gorge formed about twenty miles from here last night and broke, doing- considerable damage. The river has risen here five feet and is rising rapidly. National Fraternal Uaion. Cincinnati, Ohio, March 22.—The Supreme court of the National Fraternal union closed its sixth annual session here yesterday after making many constitutional amendments and instituting two new degrees. The supreme officers were elected/for four years. MINISTER SAILS FOB HOME. Eavoy to Great Britain Thlnkg the Trouble Will Be Arranged. New York, March 22.—Senor Barrios, Nicaraguan minister to Great Britain, sailed for Blueflelds yesterday on the Panama ship City of Para. Before the departure of the vessel Minister Barrios disavowed all knowledge regarding the alleged demand of Great Britain for £15,000 ($75,000) indemnity for the imprisonment of Consul Hatch at Bluefields, and for the appointment of a commission to adjudicate the question of damage to British subjects expelled from the Mosquito reservation. Miss Brlce to \Ved a Foreigner. Washington, March 22.—Another heiress is reported to be about to wed a foreigner. The reported engagement is that of Miss Heln Brice, daughtr of Senator Calvin S.

"Very good, indeed, my dear," he replied', and patted her shoulder reassuringly. "You will warm to the work with the next act." She moved away with a petulant gesture. "I hate to be pitied!" she said, haughtily. "The audience was like a sea of faces, heaving up and down, ready to drown me, Then the horrible spasm of fear began to contract my throat. I felt myself nearly lost!" "Why did you not look at your pretty Mai tese maiden, and no other?" demanded Mr. Brown, in & tpne of authority. *'I could not find, her in the crowd," confessed Melita, hapging her head, "I' spught her, and '-was wild with fright," Mr, Brown controlled '-a chplerje temper with some difficulty, The crisis of pceasion demanded it, He rejoined smoothly, "When you gp on again, MeJita, look steateto before VQU, and a little, to the right, and you will ftnd Her.

Every child in Switzerland has his or her little sledge and goes merrily down the snow-covered hill-sides and steep streets and lanes. This is unsophisticated tobogganing, but art steps in, and down the steep hillside prepares a path 15 ft. wide where the snow is carefully beaten dowa and smoothed, and then watered so as to make a road of ice, along which the toboggans and their ridera rush at the speed of an express train. The ills of life remain, its perplexities still perplex; but you feel an exultant joy in being alive, akin to the almost fierce delight of rushing through the air on a toboggan at nearly a mile a minute. The influe?iza has found its way up to these Alpine solitudes, but we are havirg it mildly, and some of us do not intend to have it at all, 1 cannot close this letter without alluding to the effect of this glorious out-of« doors life upon the nerves.

The authorities have come to the conclusion that sufficient time has elapsed for Spain to have made a full investigation of the insult to the American flag. Unless a reply from Spain is received within 'chat time and unless there are new complications in the Spanish political situation, Minister Taylor will be directed to urge the Spanish authorities to answer Secretary (Gresham's demands at once. Their investigation Is complete with the report of the Spanish commander and according to state department officials there can be no- further excuse for delay. No dilatory tactics will be allowed. Spain must toe the mark and soon, too, or an ultimatum will be sent which will probably call for prompt action on its part. Kept His Money In the Cellar. Columbia City, Ind., March 22.—Burglars near here robbed' Farmer Andrew Shorb, 84 year's of age, of $5,500. Shorb' lost $4,000 in the Arnold bank failure.
