He has come.. ^Will you not go down?" f ".No, no, no! Do what you judge best, Tana leave me to myself and my God." Alexandrine went out, and Margie, locking the door after her, flung her- fself down on the carpet and burisd her 'face in the pillows of the sofa. iui£ ill tuv (jiuuwa ui. tut? auio« i Mtes Lee swept down the staircase, cover- bad hot tprtrag tip la a day; its growth btd been elow, and it had taken deep foot Oh, bow hard it was to give up the blissful dream! She thought Of his early life-^how It had been full of temptation—how his noble nature had been Warped and perverted by the evil influences that had surrounded him, and for a while the temptation was strong upon her soul to forgive him everything—to Ignore all the past, and lake him Into her life as though the fearful story she had Just listened to had been untold. Marry a murderer! "Oh, God!" she cried in horror, as the whole extent of the truth burst upon her: "Oh. my God, pity and aid me!" She sank down on her knees, and though her lips uttered no sound, h?r heart prayed as only hearts can prav when wrung with mortal suffering. Archer Trevlyn must be given up; from that there could be no appeal. Henceforth he must be to her as though he had never been. She must put him entirely out of her life—out of her thoughts—out of her sleeping and waking dreams. But she could give him no explanation of her change of mind. She had passed her word—nay, she had sworn never to reveal aught that Miss Lee bad told her, and a promise was binding. But he would not need any explanation. His own guilty conscience would tell him why he was renounced. She took off the rose-colored dress In which she had arrayed herself to meet him, and folded It away in a drawer of her wradrobe, together with every other adornment that she had worn that night. They would always be her painful reminders of that terrible season of anguish and despair. "When all were in, she shut them away from her sight, turned the key upon them, and flung It far out of the window. Then she opened her writing fleslt, and took out all the little notes he had written to her, read them all over, and holding them one by one to the blaze of the lamp, watched them with a sort of stony calmness vntll they shrivelled and fell In ashes, black as ber hopes, to the floor.

Sho must write him a note, telling him that all was over between them. The gray light of a clouded morning found her making the effort. But for a long time her pen refused to move; her hand seemed powerless. She felt weak and helpless as a very infant. But it was done at last, and'she read it over, wondering that she was alive to read >t: "Mr. Ar»her Trevlyn, Sir: Yesterday afternoon, when I last saw you, I did not think that before twenty-four hours had elapsed I should be under the necessity of Inditing to you this letter. Henceforth, you and I must be as strangers. Not all the wealth and influence of the universe could tempt me to become your wife, now that my eyes are opened. I renounce you utterly and entirely, and no word or argument of yours can change me. Therefore, do not attempt to see me, for with my own consent I will never look upon your face again. I deem no explanation necessary; your own conscience will tell you why I have been forced to make this decision. I return to you with this note everything tbat can serve to remind me of you, and ask you to do mo the favor to burn all that you may have in your possession which once was mine, Farewell, now and* forever. "MARGARET HARRISON," There remained still something more to be dqne, Margie knew that Archer Trevlyn would seek her out, and demand an explanation from her own lips, apd this must never be. she could not see him now; she was not certain that sho could ever see him again, She dared not risk the influence his personal presence might have upon her, She must leave New York.

Everything was still on the streets except the clatter of the milk carts, and the early drays and huckster wagons. The air was damp and dense, and struck a deadly chill to the very marrow of this unseasonable wanderer. Ha walked a few squares, and then returned to his hotel, more oppressed than when he went out. Did ever time move so slowly before? Would the morning never pass? He wrote some urgent letters, read the damp morning paper, without the slightest notion of contents, and went tfown to his breakfast, to come away again leaving It untasted. Eight o'clock. The earliest possible hour at which it would be proper to call on Misa Harrison was eleven. Three mortal hours first! How could he ever endure It? She might be very ill. She might even he dying! Archer, with the foolish inconsistency of love, magnified every evil until he'was nearly beside himself with dread, lest she might bf worse than Miss Lee had represented. Nine o'clock struck;.,he was walking the floor in a state of \jervous excitement which would have forced him ere long to have broken all rules of etiquette and taken his way to Harrison House, had not fate saved him tati necessity. A waiter entered, and brought in n letter and a package. He snatched them both, and saw they were di- rectei in Margie's handwriting. Fo? a moment his heart stood still with a, deadly fear. Great drops of perspiration covered his forehead, and he dropped letter and package to the floor, Why was she writing to him when she must expect to see him in a few hours': And that package! What did U contain? He picked It up, and tore off the wrappings, Tbe betrothal ring rolled out and fell with a hollow sound on the floor. The ring he had put upon her finger—the ring he had seen her kiss more than once! He looked over the contents of the box hurriedly; every little thing he had ever given her was there, even to a bunch of faded violets! But the letter? He had almost forgotten it, in pondering over the dread significance of the return of bis presents. He took it up and broke the seal with elow deliberation. It would not tell him any news, but it might contain an explanation. His face grew pale as ashes as he read, and be put his hand to bis heart, as though he had received a blow there, Twice he read U through, and at the last reading be seemed to realize its dread portent, NE of the most familiar faces to be seen at almost every athletic meet, be it a collegiate, a scholastic or a club event, is that of Mr. Evert Jansen Wendell of the N. Y.A.C. -^ The pictures here given show him as _ne was in 1882 In the midst of his athletic career, a well-knit, sterling sprinter. He began his running as a school boy in 1876, when, in his first race, he covered 100 yards in 11% seconds. During the next two years, before entering Harvard, he took a prominent part in scholastic athletics and practically founded the present Interscholastic A. A. of New York city. He entered Harvard in 1878, and there, in his Sophomore year, he achieved a record never yet equalled. He was elected to the captaincy of the 'varsity track team. .As such he aroused sufficient interest in athletics to bring out the first Harvard team to win the Intercollegiate Cup. Only first places counted toward the trophy in tlrose days. He won three events on the same day— the 100 and 200 yard dashes and the 440-yard run, scoring fifteen of Harvard's thirty points. Though double wins have often been recorded, a triple victory on the same day has been won by no other intercollegiate contestant. He was the first college man to make 100 yards in ten seconds. His record stood untouched for'four or five years. He has in his medal case no less than seventy-five first prizes, won in this country and in Canada. A set of schoolboy games without Mr. Wendell as referee is practically impossible. He has officiated in this capacity at every set of interscholastic and scholastic games since 1884. a Tat. Aft interesting case to tfag of northern cities will soon come up be* fore the supreme court of Alabama, tig b March IS of this year the authorities of Mobile charged cyclists 25 cents for a tag, which was registered in a book, with the name of the owner of the cycle bearing that humbef, so that In case of an accident the owner of the cycle, if at fault, might be identl- 1 fied by his tag. When the general council adopted the license ordinance for the current year, which became effective March 15, they were imposed a tax of $1 on all riders of wheels. The payment of thU fee or license was resisted in suits brought by Hugh Rolston and Colonel F. P, Davis in the circuit court, asking an injunction against the city tax collector of Mobile to restrain him from collecting the tax. The temporary injunction was granted, but' upon the hearing of the .case before the chancery court the chancellor dismissed the injunction on the ground that the plaintiffs had their remedy in a court of law. He placed the bond to reinstate the case at $100, which was given, and the records in the case are now being made out by Mclntosh & Rich, ,at»tor- neys for the cyclists, and will be forwarded to the supreme court in a few days. The cyclists had an offer from the League of American Wheelmen to fight the case, but they declined the offer with thanks and will make the fight themselves. Tbe Henley Regetta.

Cincinnati claims to have the strongest man in the world, Sandow not excepted. His name is Henry Holtgrewe, and lie holds not only the gold medal of the state of Ohio for lifting, but also the Sandow gold medal for feats of strength. Sandow gave the latter to him to defend it against all comers, and-he is now prepared to defend it against Sandow himself. He. is 33 years of age, and was born in Osna- brack, Prussia. He came to Cincinnati twelve years ago. When a lad at school to Germany he showed the strength of three boys, and his father had the same reputation, but he did not make any special effort at the development of his natural strength until two years ago, when the Sandow-Montgomery imbroglio attracted public attention. For several years he has been known f,or his strength, due to the facility .vith which he handled furniture and lounges about his saloon, but he has never belonged to a gymnasium. Two years ago he fitted up a training room in the yard In the rear of his saloon, and his training has been entirely according to his own judgment. Since he met Sandow he has continued his exercise Avith greater zest, and can now do all the feats of strength Sandow did then and more, He. is about five feet six inches in. height. His 'ehesj; expansion Is an inch more than Sandow's, and he measures one inch more around the muscles of the arm. He can lift dead weights with one hand that other strong men cannot lift with two. One of his feats Is to lift a dumb-bell weighing 305 pounds with one hand, and put it above his head, then to let one man of 150 pounds hang on to each end.

This is today the only English boating trophy on this side the ocean. 1881.— Cornell sent to Henley a four- oared crew that had the previous year won the American Inter-collegiate regatta on Lake George. It lost at Henley, as well as on the continent. • 1895.— Cornell sent an eight-oared crew to Henley, entering only for the Grant! Challenge Cup. This crew won its first heat from Leander by what may be technically called, I suppose, default. Its second heat was against Trinity hall; at the half-mile, pulling forty-four to Trinity's thirty-eight strokes, Cornell led by half a length. At the mile, pulling the same number of strokes, Trinity had closed the gap and was beginning to leave Cornell Whereupon Cornell collapsed.
