CilAPtEtt XJ,—(Continued.) Afterward drove a carriage. At the hotel had seen a small silver chain protruding from a vest pocket of one of the bathers, as it Jiang in the anteroom. Supposing it to belong to a watch, he had pulled it out and found it only a silver medal; and, afraid to •offer it for sale, had kept it concealed. Then he left the hotel and drove a carriage for a short time; and one day found on the seat "this memorandum book," said he to the attorney—at the same time handing him Vivette's lost memoranda of the Blake family. In that, Sinithers had found the clue to the medal, and from it he had con- •cocted his claim to be Joe Blake and heir to Gray Sulphur Springs estate. The astute Mr. 55. Colburn looked over that very complete historical sketch of the Blake family with great surprise and no little gratification. Had it been made to order, it could not have snited his purpose better. If he co\ild not win his case with that (should .he de- •cide to win it at all), then the genuine and true heir could never win his own •case. "Now what is your plan—hon o .you explain your long absence and present appearance now?" "I claim that my father was mur- •dered and robbed at Covington, Ky., .just as we reached town late at night; that I saved the medal in my shoe as before instructed by my father." [He •did not get that from the memoranda; it was a lucky invention, adhered to sifter he found from Mrs. Blake he had made a hit.] "That I was taken by the robbers by boat to Pittsburg after they had sold the carriage and horses, and ' thence to England; and that I was there placed in the family of a •carriage driver where I grew up (as I •certainly did), learned to drive and be handy with horses; that the old man with whom I lived told me to go to Cincinnati soon as I was of age, and find Gray Sulphur Springs and my friends. And finally, that my memory was strong; and I could tell all about the old place and all' toy folks—and in course I can, as you. will sec." "You ought to have been a lawyer, Smithers— -or Blake as I must call you. You could have made your fortune," *aid Colburn. "Leave me that long memorandum, and I can draw the bill and petition without your help"[much better than with it, he might have added]. "Tell everybody I have taken your case merely on its merits; it will givv, you the public sympathy, and thfe's worth a good deal—come again to-morrow." Mr. Smithers went to his boardinghouse highly elated, though the whole conference between him and Colburn ruisembled one between two thieves. Mr. Sam Blake was less outspoken in his communications with Mr. Clayton. He told the story of his trip to •Cincinnati, but said he found an idiol boy named Joe who had somehow become wrongfully possessed of a medal which he recognized as that of his lost nephew; and he had employed an old .man named Molier to obtain thai medal for him from the boy; and to prevent a bad use of it had thrown into the river, But now he had no •doubt that Molier had imposed another medal upon him, and that the one thrown into the river was counterfeit. At any rate, he said, the ineda' .shown by the false claimant was undoubtedly that of "Little Joe," a'nc -was so recognized by the mother. • "Subpcena Molier," said the attorney. "The coui't will take testimony as to facts; and by Molier we can prove that this medal has long been in •Cincinnati, and that it has probably "been stolen." , • "But Molier might prove too much,' replied Blake. "Well, between the true and the false heirs, you of course prefer the true?" "Couldn't we buy off this fellow?" "With the full and as you say correct knowledge of affairs which he possesses, it would hardly be safe to TOB,ke that proposition. Does the widow join you in the defense of this, suit?" "Jam afraid not. She thinks she is Joe's heir; she is already in joint possession and interest foi life; and if the strange man shoule win f he jnust provide for his alleged • mother, at least for appearance sake.' "Any o^her reason?" asked Clayton ^Vlth a most searching look. "Candidly, I think there is, Shesus •poets me of knowing something of hei :i$an which I do not communicate to her." ''And I suspect it too, Blake," sponded Clayton. And if you wish ine to succeed in this defense you must ^yive me your lull confluence." Theft, with shame-face and hesita.' tton, Blake told the whoje story of his having found Little Joe bereft of his .senses, and of his decision to. leave him with the kind, friends who appeared to J.,o?ehn# sQmuph, Jle sajd potW rumor: .which, fcftd, re$che( J 9 e was fully restored. That fact was not —as he believed—essential to the present case. At the next ''conference of Clayton and Blake the attorney told his client hat he had seen the bill and petition filed in the case for the claimant by 'olburn, who had become his attorney, as he falsely alleged, on the merits of ;he case; and that Colburn had very raftily stated all which Little Toe might have remembered of his home and his friends and kindred, as well as of the alleged murder of his father and his own abduction to England; and had cautiously avoided all reference in the petition to any single fact which would probably be unknown to the claimant if his story were true. He declared that Colburn was enlisting public sympathy in behalf of his client; and then said that the man Molier's testimony was absolutely essential if they were to save the case. "Some one must be backing this fellow. He has no money. Colburn wouldn't take a case against me unless there was money in it beyond contingency," said Blake. "Certainly, your brother's widow would perhaps be the winner by his success. Look into it." "I cannot believe that Myra would play that game," said Blake. "I will find out who she has communicated with. That will be easy. But in the meantime, if we can control- Molier's testimony eo that he will not tell too much, send for Molier. I see no other chance." A subpoena issued for Molier, and that ended present preparation on the part of the defense. On the part of the claimant, Colburn was waiting to find—or to make— one or more witnesses who could recognize Smithers as Little Joe Blake. He encouraged Smithers to go round among the older people in the vicinity, to make friends and awaken sympathy. And among these two witnesses were found who thought they recognized him. They were nursed, heard the pretended Joe's story over and over and were ready to swear. The silversmith, formerly of Maysville, who had made the medal for "Little Joe," was subpoenaed to prove its identity. And the prosecution also rested for the present. CHAPTER XII. GUST AND VIVETTE—SfOLIKR AT SUI^'HUH—THE CLAIMANT. QUAY T CINCINNATI all was changed, Molier had given his consent to the marriage of his daughter to Joseph Gimt, and that young gentleman—not yet havincr reached his majority—had passed a satisfactory examination in the 1 aw and had been admitted to the bar. Christmas was in the near future, and that clay had been set apart as peculiarly appropriate for a wedding day for one who had himEolf been the subjecl of a wonderful advent to a new life from mental death. He and Vivette .were happy—not with the exultant glow of passionate hope of anticipations fulfilled, to fade with a waning honeymoon—but with that calm confidence in each other which lay deeper than, all transitory passion. Young Gust's love for Vivette, though started suddenly, as if from a spark, when her gentle and heartfelt thanks fell upon his ear—and his heart—in the court room, had grown with a steady and .healthy growth until it had become a part of his very life, Ue was smitten with her large dark eyes in their fringing of shining lashes; but he had caught the pure affection and unselfish love which shone from within. He had been moved by the soft tones of her mellow voice; but to him that voice was the breathing of a noble life which called to him from the heart's immeasurable deep. And now that all his hopes were about to be fulfilled, he anticipated a life of calm, deep, constant, commingled love, even such as he had ^known under the happy radiance of that union pf hearts, so highly commended by Father Burky. But while he thought of all this with, reasonable gratification, Vivette scarcely thought at all—she only felt her great- happiness, That ghe and Joseph Gust should become wife and husband was a njfttter p£ course, from t&e very fltaess o| §0, from, |he, be- Tvilnoiit coirditidH; there We*e »<Jittdk- , _..' reServattoftSj afed fid getfta of thought ^tieli might some day take f drift and Suggestion of escape in t>leaS oi incompatibility and divotce. The" twd Were to become oMe aS the redeemed soul in the Christian faith becomes "a new creature" ifc divine love. And thus She Ifaved afad trusted. Old Charley Molier was happy too, in his way. The long-nursed plan of his life for the marriage of Vivette and her bousin Adolf was scattered and abandoned; but Vivette was happy; her affianced husband had won his highest admiration \vhile he was yet "nobody and coming from nowhere," and now he had no further doubt that besides his other good qualities he Was "somebody," and came from Gray Sulphur Springs, and would'return there to reclaim his estate and to take his place among the highest. And thus he muttered to himself of the past and Coining events: "All's well that ends well—Old Charley's nobody's fool—thought from tho first Joe was good stock—make his mark in the world—must get out of Cincinnati—people mustn't lie about me —can give her a hundred thousand myself—bad about losing the'notes; might make trouble—still have the wax impressions; they will cure that—and Blake's Blakewell receipt—a little too sharp for the Kentuckian—keep my own counsel—" and so on and on, until the mutterings died into a whisper. At tho happy home of Joseph Gust and Mary, where Joseph the younger lad spent so many happy hours, a cordial approval met the approaching union of the adopted son with Vivetto Slolier. They had known her dead mother and remembered her many ,vorthy qualities which appeared to. ilicin to shine out afresh in the daughter. They had expended their years of care and fostering love xipon tho boy saved from the waters and the whirlwind, and they had their reward not only in tho exercise of these iiumane virtues, but in the return of gratitude and true filial lovo on the part of their adopted son. And they saw him about to take his place at the bar and among men with the chosen partner of his life beside him to jointly bear life's burdens and participate in its hopes fulfilled. While all was thus pleasant at Cincinnati, a sheriff's deputy from Kentucky, accompanied by the sheriff of Hamilton county, Ohio, called upon Molier, served him with a subpoena to • appear as a witness in the former state, and tendered him in advance the proper fees. "I will go," said Molier, "without prior 'tender of fees." And he then made a note of the date of his required attendance, and invited the officers to be seated; which the deputy did, while the Ohio sheriff pleaded business and retired. "Do you know something about this case, Mr. Sheriff?" asked Molier. "Yes;" replied the officer, "I could not well help knowing—nothing else talked of up about Gray Sulphur." "This is a suit about the possession of that property, I believe?" "Yes; Sam Blake is trying to keep the place away from the proper heir— so they say—I don't know much about it myself." "Is tho heir himself there; or does an attorney act for him in his absence?" • "The man is there himself." "Have you seen him?" "No, I haven't seen him. there. People say he is the —some of them do, not all." "How does there come to be any doubt about the matter?" "Well, .you see, Joe that's the heir—wont away from the Springs with his father when he was a little boy; and his father— Jeff Blake—was murdered at Covington, and Joe was taken off to England. Now he comes back and tells all about it. And Sam—that's his uncle- doesn't want to turn over the estate, "Well, that's all very strange. Does Joe, as you call him, know anything about his early life and the people about the Springs?" (TO BE CONTINUKD.) Famous DDKS. It is related that Mrs. llobert Lynn of Marshall, 111.,' was awakened on the night of Feb. 16 by her large Newfoundland dog rubbing his cold nose on her face and howling, She awoke to find the house on fire and her husband partly suffocated. By great effort they both escaped being burned to death. The faithful dog, who had thus undoubtedly saved them from an awful fate, immediately on being released went bounding across fence* to the home of a brother of Mrs. Lynn, who lived a square away. Meeting ( him and his wife on the way, they having been roused by the cries oJ fire, he bounded upon them and then darted back toward the burning house, looking back at them and barking in> patiently. Then he would rush back to them, seizing hold of their clotlpng, and strive to urge them along faster. A human being could not have displayed more apparent reasoning powers than this faithful dog. Uryn Mmyr's New I'roslilent. The recently elected president ol Bryn Mawr college, Miss M. Carey Thomas, is a woman of more than usual scholarly attainments. She received her preliminary education in Baltimore and New York, was graduated,from Cornell in 1877, studied Johns Hopkins, and then went to Europe, where bha studied for five years at the University of Leipsig. She studied also at Zurich and at the College of IVance. She was chosen dean of Byrn Mawr in 1884, and has held that position until the present.

They sat this way for five min- ites, then tho colonel slapped the tna- or's kneo and introduced what a man standing by has since regarded as an absolutely now proposition. "Majah, there are a good many fel- ers looking at tills game and that boy there is tho center of observation." "Very manifestly, sah," assented ;he other. "Well, now, this suggests to mo to ask you a very interesting question, sah." "All right, cunncl, lot's have it." "Utn-m-m!

Why don't you go down and tell that to Teddy Roosevelt for the civil sei vice commission?"

"Gin'ral Grant!" "Yes, Ginral Grant!" "Ye don't say—Gin'ral Grant! I'd never a thought he was tho man. Well, he was. More people laid ther eyes on that man than any other man since time began 'way back among tho star dust." "Well, come to say so an' think so, perhaps, begosh, it is so." Yer bet, majah. First ho was seen with that everlasting cig-yar o' his in tho western army and in tho army of Virginia. Then he was president. In those twelve years he was seen by at least 15,000,000 people. They say about 500,00.0 people visit Washington every year, counting inaugurations and big blow-outs. Then think of his travels away from Washington. Why, I was in Philadelphia when George W. Childs gave him that reception before he sailed down the Delaware to go around the world. The people just seemed like the sands of the seashore and the leaves of the forest. Just think of that journey round tho world—first to England, then France and Spain, and Scotland, and Germany and Turkey aud Egypt, and all through India, Siam, China, Japan, and then that tremendous welcome in California, Think of tho big cities that turned out to see him. Why, the czar had Grant review his whole army. I reckon not less than 200,000,000 saw Grant, first to last. Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Bismarck, Queen Victoria—well, what's the use of talking? They weren't in it with Grant." Wieu One la Shot. One of the veterans of Post 35, in Philadelphia, who was several times wounded in battle, was asked to describe how it felt to be shot down. He replied that ho had made the same request of many wounded comrades in order to compare notes. Then ho added: "The first effect of a gunshot wound that shatters a bone is a sensation of satisfied anticipation, as much as to say, 'Here I go," or 'Just as I expected,' and the wound is considered hopelessly mortal, as a mattei of course. "Then as pain ensues and a sense of dismemberment, there is a profound feeling of self-pity. This lasts during what surgeons call 'the first shock' and is the cause of that peculiar moaning- of the desperately wounded, generally attributed to physical suffering alone, and familiar to all who have been to battle. After the wound is dresseu »or an amputation performed, there rises in the mind a faint dawn of hope. If this grows into a determination to get well, tho victim stands a good chance of recovery."

This regiment was recruited principally from the counties of Livingston, Macomb, Lapeer, St. Clair, Oaklant and Sanilae, and was organized a Pontiac, Mich., in August, 1863, to serve three years, Ex-Governoi Moses Wi&ner was chosan eolon,e}.

There were eighteen guns ot three latteries iti a rott, ours being ott the ight, and we were told to be ready or action, and to ciil our spherical* ase for the limit of the range, so as otto endanger our own men lying' etween us and the Johnnies. It was a dreary morning', a cold, hilly rain fell in drizzling monotony, nd we Were toasting our sowbelly ind cooking- our coffee around*the res built between the sections. All )f a sudden a brass band stationed omewhero beyond us, belonging to ome brigade headquarters, struck up 'Yankee Doodle." Whew! Music hath harms indeed. Now; that very tuno acted on us joys as if we had had ft goodly drink jf whisky, and on tho Johnnies as if hey had got a big doso of wormwood. You ought to have boon thore! The was in five seconds full of scream- ng shells, spherical-case, and solid hot, and it was as if all tho venom of he robel host had boon concentrated n the batteries before us. Around tho fire of our section were tbout eight or ten mon, all intent on iur culinary occupation. When tho first shell struck us it went clear h rough the firo, scattering the same and cutting tho right leg off of our tfo. 1. It burst; one piece cut awheel off our limber up, and another ripped open the off-leader, and took tho leg off o£ tho off-swing horse. That breakfast was ruined. Wo ost all appctito. Our captain, James klcKnight, was on his horse in an instant. The clay's orderly and Bugler John Riloy were told to blow "Assembly in battery." Our guidon was ordered to proceed to the rear, and "stop that music," which ho need not have done, for the things ;ho Johnnies were throwing at us went beyond us, and that band did not wind up "Yankee Doodle" that morning. Our second lieutenant, Bald win, who was later killed at Cedar Creek, picked up the spent cap of the shell that had done our limber so much mischief, and, looking at the cap, ordered our No. 7 to cut his spherical- case to 350 yards. And then tho order was given to go for the Johnnies, and we did. Those old 12-pouncl Napoleons of Battery M made the hills ring again with their thundering songs—songs of death and destruction. Wo learned afterwards that our three batteries had not silenced the Johnnies' artillery, but blew up three of their caissons, and created a serious loss in their ranks. Our lads down in the woods got orders to advance; we got orders to cease firing, and tho first good foothold of the corps was won that day in tho Wilderness, which culminated in tho flank movement and evacuation of the then almost impassable position, which had cost the boys in blue many a noble son, many a widow, and sent to the rear thousands maimed and crippled mon for life.—Carl Hartman, iu the National Tribune.

In Prussia*^ in tho last ten years, the deposits itl 1 '; tho savings banks are claimed ,t6^ have augmented about $44,080,000_';.| per unnum, and throughout Ger*'' many probably $71,400,000 to $&5,- „ 200,030, from which it is inferred,^ that tho Gorman nation is laying up from $476,000,OJO to $596,00^000,1 annually, one-half ot which goes iiit& securities. In the last ten yoars\ there have been, in the aggregate, \v about $952,000,000 to $1,190,000,000,^ worth o! foreign and $1,904,000,00,0,; worth of domestic securities put "^ upon the German market. ' '\V Jk With reference to tho question'' whether Germany is wisp in taking/| so much foreign paper, Professor jp Schmollor remarks that it is''a' ^ healthy symptom, and indicates a ; ; thriving state of the people, and that, ' '< although much money has been lost thereby, it has been, on the whole, & valuable experience and the of placing the German stock changes on o^ual footing with thosej of London, Paris and New York, &, position which they did not occupy twenty-five years ago. The losses of tho country from investments in foreign securities have been great, but they are argued to havo been amply offset by the profits realized. From.' 1860 to 1892 the Germans are reck-, oned to have made $288,000;OJO in' American and Russian securities alone, independent of all indirect benefits which may have accrued to the general business of the. country through the connections made in the handling of such stocks and bonds. Germany now holds probably $2,800.000,000 worth' of foreign securities, which is presumably double what it possessed ton years ago. The interest and dividends on these add about, $119,003,000 of wealth annually to the country. This has a marked effect on the well-being of the coun~' try and its trade balance. What the country has lost in recent years through unfortunate investments in. foreign securities has probably been, about $200,000,000, which, as remarked above, has been fully compensated for by gains made. •• DON'T KNOW HOW TO PLAN.
