SAVING OF MR. O'GRADY EY W, T. L.UIriOS. Ott should see Mrs. m 7 , wife to mo shortly after my in-rival at tha summer hotel where sue was spending the season nnd I wis spending every other SnnmTy mid all my spars cush "Bo inbars," I responded. gwiDK the best imitation I could ol 1 tbo Hi- berninn accent, "«n* phwat hava jcz been doia? wid Mrs. 0'Gnuly!" "My deiir,"snid my wife, reprovingly,""! perceive that yonr opinion of Mrs.' O'Grady is as poor as your inr.ta- tion of tho dialect yon associate with her nume." "I don't know her at ail, I replied, on tho defensive. "It was not necessary for you to say ao in so mnoy words, iny dear," fiuid my wire, in n tono of voioo it is riot- worth while to explain to raarrieo. men. "When you hiwo seen Mrs. O'Grady yoa may hold to different views concerning her." As usual, my wil'o was right in her conclusions, for when I saw tho lady I was more than surprised— I was delighted She irrvs of that type of Spanish women we see in pictures, and her name boro no relation, to her whatever. As she and my irile were on such excellent terms, my probation as a stranger was short, ami in a few minutes wo were chatting away like old friends. "Eeally," I said to her, "you must pardon me, but may I ask about your name? As far as I can recall, I do not remember having heard of tho O'Gradys of Oordov a or Seville, or even of the Alhambra." "And still I am Dolores O'Grady," she smilecl. "\Vhieh beiiig interpreted," said I. with a dawning consciousness, "means that yon were onco Dolores Somebody else, nna some Irish hidalgo or don came yonr way and gave his name for yours." "You have gnessoJ it," she eaid. Then I recalled an old friend und college mote cf mine. Tom O'Grady, u dare-dovil-Dick sort of a chap, who had no sooner received his diploma than he converted what little property he had into cash and wont off on some adventure to one of tho South American Republics. "I don't know, madam," said I, "which o. r the O'Gradya has been so fortunate, but thero is one I used to 'know who was worbby of even snob, good fortnno as to be your hnsbiind. His narae was Tom, and wo were brothers for five years." She took u tiny little locket from some plaoe about her where women usually carry such things and handed it to me. "Look at that," she said, and i did. "By Jove— I bag your pardon, I exclaimed and apologized in tho name brenih; "It's Tom." That evening Tom arrived, and our respective and respected wives promised to let us have ftn hour to our- eelvos it' we would give the first two hours after dinner to them. This wo readily agreed to, because wo knew that no other course was left to us, and we adjourned to tho apartments of the O'Gradys. "'Well, well, old Tom," I said, when we had disposed of ourselves com Portably, "how did it ever happen?" and I smiled over at Mrs, O'Grady. •'Tbat what J wanted to tell yon when wn have oar hour together," he laughed. "What selfish creatures men are," aaid my wife. "Why not let us know now? ' I have never J-.nd the pleasure of meeting Mr. O'Grady until this evening, but I've known 'old Tom' over eince I've been married." "How long has that been?" inquired Tom o£ me. - "Fifteen years." "Three to tha good of mo. Dolores ,nd I h.avo been struggling along with each obher fora dozen long and weary years." . Mrs, O'Grady threw him a kiss from tho tips of her pretty fingers in re spouse. "That's one experience, plna three years," said my wife, and I threw her a handful ot kisses. "Let us have tbe story of your life, old fellow," I said coimngly, which was entirely nnuescssiiry, for Tom was as anxious to tell it BS I was 'to hear it. "Once upon a time, 1 ' he said, bowing to' all of us, "there was one Thomns O'Grncly, an American citizen of Iriab. descent, better known as Tom or 'old Tom, 1 and ho.' went to Sonth America and mingled in a revolution, one of tho Uiinga whic.h is always on tap iu'a South Ara-irican Jfiepublio for anybody to mitijfio in whenever he is disposed to do s-o. This O'Grady—" "Droii the didaslic and gcnorui," I interrupted, "tiud got down to the personal imd particular. " "As i was silyinR," Tom continued, "I weiu to South Amorioa and invested money 1 had in mines and a cof- fee plnnUtion, anJ liopi out of politics—" "An Irishman and kept out of politics?" I naked. Torn smiled. | "1 kept out of politics until I I thought I hricl some show aud tiion I •want in like—" "Au Irishman," I suggested, "Jnst so, my boy," ho admitted, "and wo had it lively. I still retained my American citi'/seosirip in case, of an emergency, but that did not interfere , with my duties as n 'boa?,' nnd » 'boss' I was, though I could not vote. At the end of five years I hud ft tremendous influence, a coffoo plantation, a paying mine and ft good bunk nocount in Now York City, whore it wns safe. _ I was twenty-sf.veu years old, nnd i ria- ! ins; younf; man ut that n.;e bus a henrt, j if ho is any good ut all, und I was some I good, if I do sny it myself. I was not much on society, as thnt term goes, but I knew some of the bodt families in the place and visited them. Then there were some other 1'nmilies I did not visit, notably that ot tha man who was my oppo.neufc nl\rnya in tho field of politics. Ho was a riob. old fellow,with two sons and a danghter— Dolores, there, remembers hur qnito well"—aacl J.Irs. O'Orndy nodded pleasantly, as if she had no fears now of nny pretty girl nnywhore—"and he was a lighter from Waybaok. As I say I iiuyer visited tho gcnornl's house, but I did meet his daughter nt tho huuaes of my friends, and of course she, of all tho girls 1 meet must bo the one I should fall in love with. I don't know why Cupid Bends his victims such Inok, bnt I notioe tbat ho often does, I had known tbe general's daughter about ft year when the forty-soventh revolution—or wivs it tho hundred -and forty-seventh ?" he naked of his wife with a smile— occurred, aad 1 was in it up to my neck. Tho others I had managed to keep out of, but this on? caught me before I knew it, and I found myself tho head nnd front of the party against tho Government. Tho only thing I did riot like in tho affair was that the general was at the head ot the Government party, and the genertU's daughter wns tho sweetesc woman in the world, and \vo wero in love, general or no general. Well, the scrap carao off in duo conrse, and after shooting •the town fall of holes for a week or so, nny Bearing tho woman and children into fits, my side went to pieces and ten of its leading spirits went to jail. From that point tho transition was easy to the tunnyaide oi n. wall on. tho outskirts of town, aud curly one fine morning we found ourselves grouped there with fifty Government soldiers drown up in line pointing loaded guns at na. ID plain English, it was an execution bee, and we wore the guests of honor. I had fixed up my business ailairn in tho J .'ew days allowed me, and ns there WHS no ona I thought us much of as I did of the general's daughter, I willed all my property to her, thus proposing to heap coals of lire on the old gentleman's noad while he was after mine. You might think I wna frightened us 1 stood there before' those guns, but I wasn't. Trae, I was a bit nervous, but I wasn't soared at a%aud I insisted on facing tho 6hbotiSsj s .j>arty and giving the command to'Uro. They wouldn't lot me do that, though, aud I had to face the wall with ray baak to the foe. I stood nt the head of the line, about three feet from tho man next to rue, and waited calmly for the end o£ things. At tho first command | I braced myself, and when the command 'Fire'"camft I tried to steady myself, but iu spite of all I could do when the guns went off I weut up into the nir as if I had bsaa bounced on a spring board cicd came dovta in a heap ?" "You weren't killed taaa?" exclaimed my wife, in the pre-eminently rational manner of all womoc. "tas, mnclain," smiled O'Gracly. "Why, Mr. O'Grady," she hsfjnn, but I Inaghud, nud she realized th;it Mr. O'Grady was iiot as dead ns his statement might lend one to suppose. "Just the same, Tom,"I enid, "I should think the nervous strain (vnd your imagination combined would hnvo sunppod the vital cord when those guns went off.

"Suppose, Dolores," . said Mr. O'Gi'ttdy to his wife, "you take up the story and finish it." "It is very simple,; 1 she said, with nn accent so charming that any nt- tempt to put it into written words would bo sacrilege: 1 "Yon know it wns the doughtsr of the general who saved Mr. O'Grady's life.

Tho cat was a solitary roamor, whose companions were the trees of itc native forests. It found a home iq the hollow trunks and safety amou" the branches. How do wo know that tho cat's ancestors were dwell ers iq tho forest? Because every kitten takes to n tree as readily M a duck to water. Also, because nearly nil forest dwellers are mottled in color, so that they may not be conspicuous among tbo lights and shadows beneath tho trees, ' While I was considering what was tho probable view held by cats about human beings, it wns suggested, by one ingenious friend that probably they regard a man as a kind of locomotive tree, pleasant to' rub against, tbo low.nr limbs of which afford a comfortable seat, und from whose upper branches occasionally drop tid-bits of mutton and other luscious t'rnits._ Wo may laugh nt the theory, but it has qni'te a reapootoble string o£ facts bo- hind it to back it np. IF the Kanakas argued from tbo pig to thu horse, why should the cat not pass from the familiar troe to tha unfamiliar organism called man? The oat, in spite of the domestic character it has acquired, is in reality the least tame of onr animal servants. As far as its duties aro concerned, man has taught it practically nothing. Its mothods of pursuing rats, mice and birds are all entirely its own. It is indeed rather a wild animal which has taken up its residence iu our houses for its own purposes than » servant or a sluve.— North American .Review.
