The valise lie- longs to the bridegroom of the auspicious occasion, mi 1 1—well, since they twain from this day forth shall be one flesh I reckon I belong to both of them. Bnt to my story. I will pass briefly over the days when I lay among a number of my follow purses in a fashionable dry goods store, and of the aw'ful maulin.tr I received the day of tho sale, when they marked us down and wjinon came by thousands, jt seamed to mo, and pulled MS about. At last I perceived a breath of perfume emanating from a dainty Stove that hovered over tho heap of purses for a minute, and then, descending, grasped me. "I will take this one, please," said a soft voice, addressing the girl behhvd the counter, aud then I felt myself thrown into the wire basket, into which «o many of my comrades hid vanished, •never to return. When the basket «amc back it always held a brown- paper parcel, nnd I never guessed ray unfortunate, friends wore -Toncealed -within the wrapping until I found myself bundled up and knew from the motion that I •was making a return trip in'the basket. All the -way .home I could hear the same soft voice and grew so restless In my paper covering that 1 managed r tofslip out where I could see the speaker. I do not think I have over seen a sweeter or more fascinating face than Jiers was—and, and remember, I am in a position to know, for I lay for jR'ceks in the glass case of a dry goods .store, and have seen thousands and' tens of thousands of women in my time. She never used to put paper money into me, but used me just for car- Tfnre, or to slip into her pocket when :sh« went calling or to 5 o'clock teas, -sis she called them. - .By and by there was another voice Tvliich I grew to know almost as well .•as my mistress', only this was not soft and gentle, like hers, but big and rough. And then I saw the owner of the voice. This is how it came about. After accompanying her all about the •city for a few weeks, as I was lying in 3ier pocket I heard the family talking About a trip to the seashore, nnd going auvay for the summer. Then several >days. afterward I was tucked into the •pocket of a new traveling gown and we nil went aboard a train. I never lieardvso much noise and such dreadful rumbling in my life as the train«di'd make, and really, the only thing which mars the pleasure of this evening is to toiow that I have days of travel before me. *• As I was saying, we went to the seashore. There she didn't carry me about »« much, but left me lying iu a box of xuflles and handkerchiefs and chiffon •on. her dressing-table. The maid used -to have the other maids at the hotel •«ome in and sit while she attended to lier work, and I used to hear lots of news from them. I never hoard my -mistress mention tho big man with tho iroice to correspond to any of tlie girls -with W;how she used to walk about tho •sand, but tho maid seemed to make tho other maids talk about nothing but him. 'Then one day, when my mistress had 3jo«D out, leaving me behind, ns usual, this girl went and took a l^{*er from tjie pocket of the gown my mistress had worn at breakfast that morning, and she read it aloud, meditatively. It .ran* "My Dear Miss Castleton: I hope you •yflll forgive me for writing to.you with•out haviuj' obtained your permission to •<&> so before you left tho city, but as I anv coining down on Saturday 'to/stay Train Monday nnd understand there is •to bft the cotillon at the hotel on Satin-flay ovcuiug, I am so anxious for the favor of your hand for this dance as to risk attending you by writing to ask posited in one were honestly come by! by' and by my mistress entered the £odin. I U'jVfii' srctv'hor look more lovely in my life, tier gown was all of .heliotrope, and t connected it immediately with the . little knot of ribbon used to weir in his button-hole, m /'Let my extreme eagerness for that 3M»»or plead my forgiveness for this 3M>te, and when 1 conns I shall try to -pud an opportunity to say with my •own lips all that is necessary and something more also, if I may. Meantime, JMslicsve me, yours to command, •'-Hit-hard Melton." I didn't understand at the time why •fjie maid placed this-- letter in another •Rflvelope, stamped it and wrote an ad- »«JmJH on the outside, which latter I was ^naple to read. Then she put on her JV Jy»t and went out. r * t >( * * * * At 8 o'clock on the eventful Saturday "lilght i was lying nuclei iu?uth ft settee the veranda of the hotel, gazing dis- through the windows into <Ja,ueing rogni. That aftevnooa my 'vess. hud been wondrous heedless eyerytWug uud it was little muro I expected when she laid me down „.. , and then, arising, walked T jMMi left n?e.

Did he notine the <x>lor, too, 1 wondered, as I glanced to where he stood? Hilt he didn't seem to be noticing anything in connection with her. In fact, he did not speak to her. as 1 expected, but went instead and sat down beside a tall, flnshily dressed girl in red, who smiled and made eyes at hiin aiid -appeal-erl delighted as she handed him her programing and he wrote something on it. My mistress watched him for a few minutes, her eyes growing wider and Wider every second, until she turned scornfully away and began talking more gayly than usual to the men who cvowded about asking her to dance. I could just hear her voice as she told one 'of them she was engaged for tho cotillon which 'was to close the evening's amusement. Then the music, started up and the people to sway in rylbmlc time. AH the place grew one whirl of delicate hues and appeared like the enlarged edition of the daiiseilse whom my mistress- and I once saw at the matinee. Her gown was composed of endless yards of white stuff, which she tossed and whirled and circled around and above her all the while they thnw colored lights over her, Until she looked like an animated rainbow. II Avas dark out where T lay and tho woman who came and seated herself wiflly on tlie settee was at first unrecognizable. Then she ut.lorecl an exclamation and I kne\y her for our French maid. "Tlens! 1 ' shn said, exiiltingly. "I thought it 'would work, Now they are getting ready, for the cotillon and my handsome Richard is crossing the room toward the lady in red. This Is Just the moment for Gustavo— and there he comes. Oh, 1 will win yet. She shall accept Gustavo in some moment of pique, and then as the sister-in-law of my former mistress I shall be able to make my debut in society on the money she will give Gustavo. I shall attract M. Dick and make niy own fortune. That doll would look like a dowdy if it were not for my taste in robing her. Perhaps I should not have been so particular about her appearance had 1 known she would attract Dick as she calls him to herself." Then, as some one approached the window, she slid back into the darkness. And I had to lie and watcli Dick and Margaret dancing with everybody in the room except each other. Presently Dick stopped suddenly onto the porch and lit a cigarette. I heard him use a word I never knew before, but it sounded dreadfully angry. Perhaps that was because I never heard a man talking to himself before.. I have heard enough of them since, though, and I know men call it swearing. Well, Dick swore. He seemed to feel better after that, and came over to sit down on the settee. As ho did so, his foot struck against me, and he stooped to pick me up. "A lady's- pocket-book," he exclaimed. "I wonder if it has much money and to whom it belongs. I suppose there's no way of knowing unless I examine the contents. Let me see: Two tickets on the elevated road, one caramel flattened beyond all recognition and still in its oil-paper wrapping, a key, 30 cents, and— a card. AVhy— it's Margaret's!" He suddenly raised me to his lips and kissed me passionately. I .felt his breath come in quick sobs as he did SO: "I suppose it's robbery to keep it, and especially dishonorable when she expressed herself so clearly by sending ray note back... And yet I can't go away without some word, some little token of her. I will— I'll ask her to dance the next ilgurc! with me." He went quickly into the room and over to the table where tho favors were piled. Picking up some absurd trifle, he resumed his place by his p.irtner's side, and waited. At last his turn came, and when the leader clanked his castanets, and the gentlemen and ladies separated to to choose other partners, I saw Dick approach Margaret. She bowed and they stepped out on the floor together. Tim music was u waltz— some weird thing of Strauss'. They reminded me of a rhyme Dick once read Margaret and of which she always seemed fond afterward: My arm enlaced her winsome waist And down the dance we flew. Wo flew, we raced, our lips embraced 4 And our breath was mingled, too. Round and round we whirled and wound In n circle light and fine— And all the whuVin the winding ways That music—that music of other days, With its infinite possibilities And its memories divine, cato odor of which Dick spoke was suddenly till about us. Dick perceived it, too. and made n, move us if to tarn, but my lady was too quick for him. The some two soft hands bound his eyes tight, shut, and a half-tearful voice demanded: * "Heavy, heavy hangs qvct 1 thy head. What shall the owner do to redeem It?" "Marry me!'' fried Dick, suddenly snatching me out. of her clasp. "The owner shall not regal*! the property until she marries rne." "But why didn't you Come !o me for the germ an? And whnt were you muttering about your letter? 1 have it In my gown, up-stairs. and did liot reply because 1 wanted you to ask me with your own lips." » "But here's the letter," returned Dick, positively. "Bui; t am sure 1 left. It in my gown." 'A. rip in tho lining, and some other jealous fellow found it and mailed it back to me." . . "More like a jealous woman," whispered Margaret, fondly. "Hush! Not another word, even iu fun. We are together. That is enough."., (V- long, calm silence settled down upon the night. As I lie here, alone; the sound of music and laughter from below nssure.s me that Margaret has redeemed her forfeit. TWENTY-TWO HANDS HIGH. A Well Pi-oi«>Hloiie<l You 11 iv JIorMo Tlint Tips ilic lU-iiin nt J,7(>0 Pnii it tin. A freak of nature and world wonder in the shape of a horse drew many of the curious to the livery otabk/on .South Third street. Seattle, the other day. The specimen of the canine kind, is unquestionably the tallrst in the world. It is, In fact, a colt, not yet. .'! years old, measuring the enormous' height of 22 liands— 7 feet 4 inches. In weight this horse wonder tips the scales at 1,700 pounds." Peter (that; Is his name) is a gelding, tud was foaled In Minnesota, in June, 1891. He is of Norman stock, and is described by the Telegraph, as a beautiful dapple gray in color. What is ilmost as remarkable as his huge proportion is the fact that his dam and sire were not above the average size of that breed of horses. Another colt from :he same dam and sire a year younger ,hau Peter, but proportionally as large, f not larger, died some months ago. Peter, as evidenced by his weight, is a well proportioned animal. Hi's limbs ire clean cut, and the head, body and leek of good form. He is, as is the jasp with many colts.a little bit sway- lacked.'-but this imperfection, horse- nen say, will disappear with age. The hips are a little higher than the highest joint of the shoulders, from which the lelght and measurement is usually taken. Should the horse grow to maturity, t is not unreasonable to expect that he will attain fully more six inches more height and develop proportionately otherwise, carrying a weight possibly of 3,000 pounds. A gelding seldom attains its full height until 7 years old, •while mares generally mature two years younger. There. i§ nothing of record, several horseman said yesterday, which equals the height of the' colt in question. Several years ago, however, there was a horse on exhibition in Toronto, Can., which weighed 2,800 pounds. Peter is physically sound and healthy. At such an age, growing with the rapidity that he is, he could not retain much flesh, though he might be said to be in good trim for work. His carriage is good and movement far less clumsy and awkward than might be expected of an animal of such proportion. EXAMINE ALL $2 NOTES. AHE EMPMOES TO BE, NICHOLAS OF .fcUSSIA UEORQE OF WALES.

But I felt rather than heard a soft step behind us and I knew she was near. Dick again raised me from my hiding- place and pressed me to his lips again. "I just hadn't the nerve to say anything, after all, so I am going to steal you, liko a regular thief. It was angelic for her to notice me at all, after my ignoring the return of my letter. I shall never forget that waltz, and I'm going to keep you aud this caramel that she might have oaten, and tho tickets thrtt would have served to ta'ko her about on her 'shopping trips, like thp flue on 'which she bought you, perhaps, aud these coins that her fingers have touched, Why, I can detect in your leather the yery perfume, so faint aiid still so penetrating, that always follows her.

There is a new $2 counterfeit bill in circulation. It is of series 1891, check letter B, J. Fount Tillman, register; D. N. Morgan, treasurer; McPhersou portrait. The noto is described by the Boston Herald as a trifle smaller than the genuine, and is printed on very soft, flimsy paper. The numbering is poor, both as to formation nnd color, being almost brown or chocolate instead of carmine. The seal is about one-sixteenth of an inch smaller than the genuine, and is a dull, dark, faded red instead of a bright pink. In the portrait of McPherson the hair and whiskers are almost wholly represented by solid black color, with the exception of a few scratchy lines above tlie forehead, instead of having a neatly brushed appearance. In the counterfeit, also, the whiskers are trimmed evenly all round, showing the white collar below,'while in the genuine a small part of the white collar and the coat collar are hidden by the whiskers, which arf.unevonly trimmed. Two points of a second star can be distinctly seen in the left shoul- 'der strap on the genuine, but in tho counterfeit this appears as the whito border of the shoulder strap. Tho small words "two" which appear in two places in the figure two, lower right hand corner'on the face of the genuine arc not to be found on the counterfeit. Tlie latho work 011 the face of this counterfeit is well executed, but on tho back of the noto it is mu ;h broken and disconnected. Tlie letter "o" in the word "two," lower right corner back of the note, is poorly formed. Tho distributed silk to bo found in tho genuine paper is represented in this coiUer- felt by splitting the paper and tracing •the irregular creases of same with red ink. Taking the note as a whole, it is a very dangerous counterfeit. m A Costly Cont of I'niuf.

And the g-ood-natured world, still finding royalty amusing and romantic, and touched with the charm of remoteness, believes the stories with a zest that by all means implies conviction. It 'is reported with more than usual persistency that when the young Grand Duke Nicholas Alex- androvitch, eldest son and heir of the Emperor Alexander III. of Russia, was promised in marriage to tho Princess Alixo of Hesse, granddaughter of Victoria, queen of England and empress of India, and cousin to the emperor of Germany, it was the happy crowning of genuine love on both sides. It is open to suspicion, however, that the high matchmakers in this case did protest too much. The Princess Alixe is a young woman of more than usual wit and grace and intelligence, and a great favorite with her venerable and accomplished grandmother. \Vhon the latter, with all her native liking and acquired capr«ity for making matches, set about finding a husband for her favorite granddaughter she finally selected by all odds the most brilliant parti within sight-«-the heir to ktissia, and the alliance knitted % the betrothal of the czarevitch rnaj have important consequences on th<j Delations between great nations.

But with a granddaughter of Queen Victoria and a cousin of tha Gorman Wiliiairi as czarina of Russia, the policy of that einpire, resting finally, as it does, in the hands of the czar will not readily be hostile to his Wife's family. Should this prove to be the result of the marriage, itiaiiy millions of the people who care but little about it now may bless its celebration. SENATOK PAT TON. TIio the Man Who Will Serve Out tlia StookhrldRO Turin. .Tohn Patton, Jr., of Grand Rapids, newly-appointed senator from Michigan, has been active in Michigan politics, but has never cared lor office, though it is conceded that he might .7OUN PATTOX, Jit have been mayor of Grand Rapids or representative in congress from this district had he so desired. His indifference to office, notwitl.standinff his willingness to do party work, has led to the belief that he was singularly unambitious. He does not conceal his pleasure that the governor should have chosen him to be senator, and it may be that he has been waiting all TWO FUTURE EMPERORS. the Russian throne. And when she found an ally in the enterprise in tho person of the emperor of Germany, success was assured, and the feelings of the young people, though they may have been lively in one direction, or the other, need hot be considered as having counted. The rulers of the three greatest and most powerful naj tions of the globe had sot out to couple thorn, and coupled they were bound to be. If they had really been only awaiting an opportunity to rush into each other's arms, we suspect that the fact would not have been heralded so loudly. It would have been apparent enough of itself. The czarevitch, whoso portrait wo give, apart from his "prospects" would not be likely to strike any maiden's heart with the lightning of love. He is simply a young man of 20 years of age, of no known gifts or characteristics of any mark, Until within a few years he has been a sickly youth, and the nature of his illness was such as in common life would discourage parents with marriageable daughters, since it was ol the sort known as "nervous," and required the attention of specialists in mental troubles, who had previously been called iu for his mother in similar circumstances. In 1891, however, he wade a tour of the world, and had the luck in to be Attacked by a crazy native and, receive some rather savage s. word wounds, Possibly, as sometimes happens, the shock oi' this experience m,ay have etp&died. ip- 6tea<l of further uu,balancipg . h)$ nerves^ At any rate,, ho h,as ginec bow li wueU sponger wa».
