THE YOUNG SEIGNEUR His chief occ'upation in tbn daytime was ID stand on tho bench by tho small barred window and watch tho pigeons on the roof and in tho caves of (.be hoa- pitn.l opposite'. For five years he had tlono this, and it was tho one thins in his wholo life during that tiuin which .had a charv.i fur him. Every rhango ol weather and wesson was registered there as plainly as if lie could see f.ho surfifne of tho world. In tho summer tho slates scenic.'!.'! In ha r o a groat fire beneath thorn, for ;> ; q-Hirerin£> hot nir roso tip from them, ai;cl the pigeons- novi-r alighted on them pnv? in the early morning 01 in t lie ever, ir,;. r . Just over tho peak oi i'iO roof e;;i;!d be seen the topmost branch of an oak, too slight to hear the \vc:u:'!rc of tho pigeons, but tho oaves under t'-o projeeting roof were dark and CO'-'!. !>;ul there his eyes rested when hi? tir-.". ; . vi the. hard bine sky and the glare el' ihorocf. He conld also see tho top of tho hospital windows, barred up and clown, but never anything within, for the windows were over dusty, and nil was dark beyond. But now and then he heard bitter cries coining through one open winuViV in the summer time, and he listened to thorn grow fainter and fainter, till they sank to a low moaning and then ceased altogether. In winter the roof was covered for months by a blanket of snow, which looked like a shawl of impacted' wool, •white and restful, and the hospital windows were spread with frost. But the pigeons were the same—almost as • gay and walking on the ledges of the roof or crowding on the shelves of tho lead pipes. Ho studied them much, but he loved them more. His prison was less a prison because of them, and iu tho long fivo years of expiation he found himself more in touch with them than with tho wardens of the prison or any of his companions. \Vith tho former he was respectful, and ho gave them no trouble at all. 'With the latter he had nothing in common, for they were criminals, and he— he bad blundered when wild'and mad with drink, so wild and mad that, he had no remembrance, absolutely none, of the incident by which Jean Vigot lost his life. He remembered that they had played cards far into the night; that they had quarreled, then made their peace again; that the others had left; that they had begun playing cards and drinking again, and then all was blurred, save for a vague recollection that ho had won all tho money Vigot Sad and bad pocketed it. Then came a blank. Ho waked to find two officers of the law beside him, and the body of Jean Vigot, stark and dreadful, a few feet, away "When the officer put their hands upon him, ho shook them off. When they did it again, he would have fought them to tho death had it not been for his friend, tali Medallion, who laid a strong hand on his arm and said, "Steady, Converse, steady!" and he had yielded to tho firm, friendly pressure. Medallion had left no stone unturned to clear him at the trial, had himself played detective unceasingly, but the hard facts remained there, and on a chain of circumstantial evidence Louis Converse, the young seigneur, was sent to prison for ten years for manslaughter. That was tho compromise effected. Louis himself had said only that he didn't, remember, but ho couid not be- Jievu'ho had committed tha crime. Rob- tiery? lit shrugged his shoulders at that. Ho irj:-::. ; ;,-d that his lawyer should .not rerilv to the insulting and foolish j^m^.o.t-«jfci.B.u JL But thu evidence had shown that Vigot had all the winnings when the other members of the party left the two, and this very money had baun found in .Louis' pocket. There was only Louis' •word that they had playecl cards again. Auger? Possibly. Louis could not remember, though he knew they had quar- jeled. The judge himself, charging the jury, said that he never before saw a prisoner so frank and outwardly honest, tut warned them that they must not lose sight o.f the crime itself, tho taking of a human life, whereby a woman was snade a widow and a child fatherless. And so with tho few remarks the judge sentenced the young Seigneur to ten years in prison, and then himself, shaken and pale, left the courtroom hurriedly, for Louis Converse's father had been his friend from boyhood Louis took his sentence calmly, look- jog the judge squarely in tho eyes, and when the judge stopped he, bowed to him, turned to the jury and said: "Gentlemen, you have ruined my life. YOU don't know, and I don't know, who killed the man. You have guessed, and J take tho penalty. Suppose I'm iuno- pent. How will you feel when the truth comes out? You've known mo more or less theso 80 years, and you've said with jjo more knowledge than I've got that I did this miserable thing. I don't know but that OIJM of you did it, but you. are safe, and I take my ten years. " He turned from them, mxl as he did so he saw n woman looking nt him, from a corner of the courtroom with . a grange, wild expression, A* the moment he saw no more than' au exciter!, bewildered face, but afterwarcl this fajoe and went before hjua, flashing; ju out of tUirk places in n }iio,okiu.g eorl ol way. As h'e went from cotiftoofn afiother womafl made her way 1 1 him in spite of the guards. It was tho little chemist's wife, who years before had been his father's housekeeper, who had beer, present when ho first opened his eyes on the world. "My poor boy! My poor boy!" she said, clasping his manacled hands. He kissed her on the cheek, without a word, and hurried on into his prison, and tho good world was shut out. In prison ha refused to see all visitors, even Medallion, the little chemist's wife, and the good Father Pabro. Letters, too, he refused to accept; and read. Ho had fio contact, wished uo contact, With the outer \vorld, but lived his hard, lonely life by himself, silent, brooding, studious, for now books were to him a pleasure. Anfi ho wrote, too, but never to any soul outside tho prison. This life had nothing to do with the world from which ho came, and ho meant that it should not. So perfect a prisoner was he that the warders protected him from visitors, and he waa never but once or twice stared at, and then lie saw nothing, heard nothing. He had entered his prison a wild, excitable, dissipated youth, and ho had become a mature, quiet, cold, brooding man. Five years had done the work of 20. He lived the life of tho prison, yet ho was riot a part of it, nor yet was ho a part of the world without. And the face of the woman who looked at him so strangely iu the courtroom haunted him now and then, so that at last it became a part of his real life, which was lived largely at the window, where he looked out at the pigeons on tho roof of tho hospital. "Sho was sorry for me,'' he said inany a time to himself. He was sorry for himself, and he was shaken with misery often, so that ho rocked to and fro as he sat on his bed, and a warder heard him cry out oven iu the last days of his imprisonment, "O God, canst thou do everything but speak?" And again, "That hour, the memory of that hour, in exchange for my ruined life!" But there were times when ho was very quiet and calm, and he spent hours in watching tho ways of tho pigeons, and ho was doing this one day when tho jailer came to him and said: "M. Converse, you are free. Tho governor has out off five years from your sentence." Then he was told that people were waiting without—Medallion and the little chemist and his wife and others more important—but ho would not go to meet them, and he stepped into tho old world alone at dawn the next morning and looked out upon a still, sleeping town. And there was- no one stirring in -the place, but suddenly there stood before him a woman, who had watched by the prison gates all night, and she put out, a hand iu entreaty and said, with a breaking voice, "You are free at last!" He remembered her—the woman who had looked at him so anxiously and sorrowfully in tho courtroom. He looked at her kindly now, yet he was dazed, too, with his new advent to freedom and the good earth. "Why did you come to meet me?" ho asked. ' -....,.. "I was sorry for you, " she replied. "But that is no reason. " "I once committed a crime," she whispered, with shrinking bitterness. "That's bad, " ho said. "Were you punished?" Sho shook her head and answered, "No." "That's worse," ho added. "I let someone else take my crime upon him and he punished for it," she said, an agony in her eyes. "Why was that?" he said, looking at her intently. "I had a little child," was her reply. "And the other?" "He was alone in the world," she said. A bitter smile crept to his lips, and his eyes were all afire, for a strange thought came to him. Then ho shut his eyes, and when ho opened them again discovery was in them. "I remember you now," he said. "I remember I waked and saw you looking at me that night! Who was the father of your child?" he asked eagerly. "Jean Vigot, " she replied. "Ho left me to starve." "I am innocent of his death I" he said quietly and gladly. She nodded. He was silent for a moment. '"The child still lives?" he asked. Sho nodded again. "Well, lefc it be so," he added. "But you owe mo five years and a lost reputation. " "I wish to God 1 could give them back,'' she cried, tears streaming down her cheeks. "It was for my child, he was so young!" "It can't be helped now, "ho said, and he turned away from her. "Won't you forgive me?" sho asked bitterly. "Won't you give me back those five years?" he replied meaningly. "If the child did uot need me, I would give my Hfo," she answered, "J owe it to you. " Her haggard, hunted face made t him sorry. He, too, had suf' fered. "It's all right," ho answered gently. "Take care of your child," And again he moved away from her nud went down the little hill with a cloud gone from hjs face thathacl rested there five years. Once be turned around. L'ho woman was gone, but over the prison n flock of pigeons were flying. Ho took off his hat to them. Then he went through the town looking neither to right nor left and came to his own bouse, where the summer morning was Already entering the open window, though ho had looked to ii»d the place closed and dark. The little chemist's wife met him in the doorway, She could pot epcak, jioj, 1 could he, but he kissed^ her as he had done when he went oo«? rlemned to prison. Then he passed on to his own room, and entering sat down beforo tho open window and peacefully clrtmk iu the glory of a new world. But luore than once ho choicer! down a gob that rose in his throat. -^Gilbert Parker in Now York Herald. ANCROFT N To the Ladies of Elttdroft and Vicinity!

It is a Hard Fight for Mayor Between the Two Elements—A Split Caucus. The hustling young town of Lcclyard having incorporated, as a necessary stop in tho line of progress, is at present in the throes of hor first municipal election campaign, and excitement is at fever hoa.t,' The election occurs tomorrow, and It is expected that what some, people call "fun" will be had, as there is likely to be dispute as to tho right of parties to vote. The caucus called by the commisionors resulted in a split, and tho nomination of two candidates, J. W. Neister, tho hardware dealer, and Andy Dunlap, tho hay dealer and candidate for representative. The light in the caucus culminated in a vote on tho proposition to instruct tho chairman, who was Dr. Dunlap, to appoint a committee of three to name a candidate for Mayor. According to the count there wore 37 votes in favor and 31 votes against, tho latter favoring a vote for candidate by ballot. When the committee retired to make up their report those who favored a voto by ballot iretired also and came together in another hall, organized and nominated Mr. Neister, tho coin mittoo at tho other mooting naming Mr. Duulap. The Neistor men objected to tho voto in tho lirst caucus on tho ground that persons not voters participated, and there Is? controversy over the right of certain par- tios to voto In tomorrow's election. WESLEY. WESLEY, May 0.—Wesley encountered a heavy wind storm Thursday night, its course being northeast. It lirst struck at tlio old M. Taylor placo and moved' .Bud Donaldson's house its foundation and carried it, 8 loot northeast. It tore down E: P. Chapin's wind mill and carried it across one block, demolishing it almost completely. The McPherson slaughter house, half a mile further, was torn to pieces. Jumping three quarters of a mile, it caught Mr. Waito's windmill and tore some of the fans out, leaving the tower standing. The storm caniB on between 5 and 0, p. m. and it looked as though everything had broken loose. The rain fell in torrents, mixed with hail and accompanied with terrific thunder and lightning. Wesley having carried the school 'ihouso bonds, 8(5,000, will have a fine school house. All funds available will be put Into it. The people of Wesley appreciate educational advantages. Speaking of educational matters reminds us that our principal for three years, Prof, Frank Barslou, will be a candidate for county superintendent this fall. Though lie is not exactly a permanent resident, Wesley will give him a hearty support. Hois well qualified and very popular here. Peter Bostrack's now furniture building 20x80, is about completed. Mr. McPherson is erecting >an addition o tho millinory store for residence pur- iQSCS. Twenty or more business men of Wesley iave organized a club and will enjoy the ixhilorating game of billiards. Dr. Ken* loy is the temporary president and Ed. vuntx secretary. THE COUNTY AT LARGE, The Led yard Leader notes the fact that ho assessor of that township omitted four people from his enumeration of itihabi' ants, and singular to tell they woro hin> ,elf and wife and ttvo children. Tho Elmoi'o Eye. says that Lawrence Bros, struck a flowing well for Herman Roister, of Kossuth county, last week. The rest of the papers of the county ,iave become so accustomed to the sensa- ;lon that they iiovoi'iuentipu it, but the Ledyard Leader, a new paper with us, considers it worthy of romai'k that Kos<- suth is the only county iu the state absolutely without a debt. Ifitisafact It is a guod thing for the wide world to know, The Ledyard Leader gives these items interest: H, E,Step, hens, a ..brother of It Is as much the unique narration as the artistic'execution of the "gentleman 5 ' engaged in the target practice which riv- its attention to this item from tho Brilt, Tribune: An Emmfitsbnrg gentleman made a small hole in a friend's ear with a gtln and then wired Daniel Kelloy tocomo and explain tho the matter to the district court which Is in session this week. Mr. Kelly wont to Emmetsburg on the Tuesday p. m. train. He will, without doubt, clear his client." The same truthful organ tolls this dog story: "P. D. Palmar had some papers in his pocket mid lost tncm as he was sauntering about town. Ho went out to hunt for them and upon inquiry was informed by some one that they saw his clog with sohio papers In his mouth. • lluhtiiiff up tho dog ho found the payers wore all right. Ito had dropped thorn and the dog picked them up and took care of them. Tho paper was a poti- tioiitorun a street sprinkler and it is thought that the dog, thinking it would be another dry season, was helping to circulate it so lie could have a placo to cool his parched hind logs in tlio Idos of dog days." Over. In Fort Dopge, says tho Hamilton County Journal, an intinerant photographer recently sot up his booth on a vacant lot. Five merry maidens woro out for a walk the other day when their attention was caught by the display of portraits on the outer walls of tho gallery. "Oh, girls, do lot's have our pictures taken." cried a chubby blonde with Huffy hair. The suggestion was adopted and a noisy consultation with the artist terminated in a decision to be taken after tho manner of those familiar cherubs who gaze out at one through a hole'In a cloud. Tho artistic accessories of tho establishment wore limited and the camera manipulator was shy of clouds. But ho was a man of infinite resources and ho promptly improvised the required ethereal background by cutting a slit in a large newspaper. Through tho hole In tho paper each of tho five pretty heads wcro successively thrust to bo snapped at by tho camera. When tho developing process was completed a horrible discovery was made. Tho newspaper page had contained a mammouth advertisement of ready made clothing, and there, beneath each cherub countenance, was the lino in big display typo: "All 0111 pants are double lined." , Ed Nelson, of Spencer, tho Roportei says, hired a livery team to drive to Em- motsburg, and the outfit not reporting a tlio expected time, the proprietor went to Emmotsburg and found that Nelson had sold one of the horses for SO and had traded a sewing machine for another to takt its place. On his trial for petit larceny Nelson pleaded guilty .and was assessed ?50 and costs. Nelson has served one tern in the pen, and the Reporter thinks he should have another, but doubts whether iu these days of cheap horseflesh, a cliaig-e of grand larceny will staud. , . A : Webster City special says that Miss Lillian Weaver of that city has just completed a course at Vassar college and wins highest honors in that institution, which consists of a scholarship 'valued ' at 8400. Miss Weaver'is tho accomplished daughter of Prof, and Mrs. A. A. Weaver, of Webster City, and is a graduate of the high schools of that place and Iowa Falls, of which place she was a resident for a number of years. • Tho honors thus worthily won are a credit, not only to Miss Weaver but to the sta'te which she ably represented at one of the leading scholastic institutions of the world.
