SACRIFICED HIS SUCCESS
A Great Man Throws Away HI
He threw away a Rt-eat clinnce of
success and has been a Lappier man
There is no one bat myself in Eng
land now who knows exactly how it
happened, and as I was thinking over
it tonight something in the papers
about a clever detective in New York
brought it all fresh back to my mind
It Scvuieu to Ino stu-ii queer story
altogether that J think it will interest
others to know it.
I must just alter one or two of the
names, that's nll,becauso it is not so
very long since it happened, and it
came out in one or two papers nt tho
time, but all more or less wide cf the
maik. None of them Lad just the
rights of it.
You sea, no one could make out. how
Allan got away so easily no one
knows except my friend and I, and
one man over the seas, and not even
the cutest Yankee could ever guess
It is stranger than fiction, ns you
wiil find. .Gut this is tho story.
I put it short enough, for writing is
not in my line. I can think things out
in my head and turn them over and
over till there is not much left of them
that has not been put through the
sieve, so to speak, but when it conies
to pen and ink I'm a poor hand. It
means sitting down indoors for hours,
and that I am not u.ed to. No, thank
-heaven, I can earn my bread by some
thingelse, or very little bread would
come to rue, and no chance of butter
This is not my story at nil; I mean,
not about my own life. It is about a
friend of mine, George Mnrkson.
If I told yon his real name, you
would probably remember it at once,
tie was one of the best known detec
tives of the time. Talk about five
sonsAs, (Jorge had ten at least. Us
could see round a case and through a
man, and into your mind almost, and
tell you whtt you were thinking of,
better than you knew yourself.
And all so quiet you would not
think he saw much, but ho had seen
everything at a glanco and forgotten
nothing. I have known hint to look
into a room that he hnd never seen
before, and in the evening when we
were sitting together, he would de
scribe that room down to the maker's
namo on the clock, as minutely as if
he were holdiug a picture of it in his
hand at the time.
He worked on his own account, and
he had constant and well paid em
ployment, since the day ho tracked
the man who robbed tho bank of
Westminster; you may remember tho
case a daring daylight robbery.
Ho traced him after a long soarch
to Paris, and spotted him there as a
parcon in a cafe a good disguise, too.
George was in Spain after that tor a
long time, and then went to Cairo, so
I did not see him for more than a
year. He came back with a reputa
tion more brilliant than ever, and
settled down into the same rooms he
had shared with mo bofore he left.
He was a middle aged man when I
knew him, and the sevcro mental
strain of his employment, together
with lioini! troubles, made him Buem
older than ho was!
His wife, to whom he had boon
much attached, had died many years
ago. His only son, too, had turned
out badly, got into debt (the old story
of a weak will influenced by bad com
panions), and then had emigrated to
the gold diggings and was believed to
have died there after a few more
wasted years of riot and dissipa
tion. His father had built many hopes
on his only son, and had carried
about an unhealed wound caused by
the bitter disappointment of all his
At the time I am writing about, I
saw there was something moro than
usual on George's mind.
He never talked about what he
was engaged in, and I took care never
to plague him with questions, but it
happened that a chum of mine, named
Miles, told me that George had missed
a good clue, and that another man,
named Smollett was beginning to
make a name, and was now bent on
Once run to the earth some one
whom George had failed to trace, and
his reputation was secure.
To outshine one of tho 'host men
then at work was a high came to try
for, but Smollett was, trying no
Not long after I met Miles again in
Oxford street. He told meJhat Smo
llett had scored again, and that George
had missed a find he had made pretty
I pooh poohed the whole thing.
"Chance, all chance. Fine thing for
Smollett, more luck than good man
agement, no doubt," I said, feeling
rather nettled, I own.
"Wait a bit, you will see which is
tho best man of the two."
" Til back Sm ,' said Miles, but
remembered that , George was my
friend, and said no more.
I came across Miles in very nearly
the same place next day. "Heard the
latest?" he shouted, and then pro
ceeded to explain that a forger, who
had been wanted for some time, was
supposed to be in London, and that
a large reward was offered for him.
. "Both on the war trail this time,"
said Miles. "Which will bo the best
man now, eh? Getting exciting, isn't
That evening George, who had been
out all day, came quickly into the
room soon after 6.
I knew by his look that he was em
ployed on some important mission.
His brows were drawn down into a
single straight line and hia lips were
firmly pressed together.
He stood fcr some time on the
hearth rug, evidently in deep thought,
lie had not removed his top coat.
"Are you off again?" I remarked.
He looked tip suddenly. "Going to
drive to Ilolloway," ! td. "Will

"Tlx cnb will le round in a few

man. though I have not worried you
about my atmirs.
"They neve r worry me," I began,
only wish you"
"I know I know," he interrupted
kindlv: 'voti think Your Liack m
broad enough to carry my troubles
as well as yours, nut vou shall never
have mine to bother you, Tom, while
you have any of your own. This is
the only thing you have heard of,"
and then he went on to tell me the de
tails of the case that Miles had re
"I came across the track this after
noon," he said, "and now it's only a
(iiu-Ktion of time.
He drew a !h- breath ot relict and
threw his (shoulders back. "I did
make a mess of that last thing, and
that makes me more keen about this.
You see, there's another man," I knew
ho meant Smollett, who would give a
good bit to get hold of this job before
me, out tiiere s not miicn tear 01 my
losing it now."
He smiled as he spoko and looked

We said nothing more anddrove off.
It w.g a wet, cold night, nnd I was
glad when the cnb stoptied ami we left

"Third door on the right," said
George, partly to himself, "past the
coal yard, over tho butcher's. You
wait here for two minutes, Tom; if I
am not down then you follow mo.
Back room on the top of staircase. I
may want you. Hou't stand in tho
wet. Here's a doorway to shelter in."
At the end of two minutes I was
climbing quietly up the narrow, dark
staircase. No sound of voices any
where. "Bird's llown. Bad luck to him," I
thought. "Awfuily hard on George,
1 was at tho top, when suddenly
there rnme the sound, so seldom heard,
of a man's voice broken by sobs,
striving to speak quick and coherently-
Ah! found it s no go, confessing his
sins," I smiled to myseif, nnd pushed
the door ajar.
Am how could i have kno.vn
George's voice, always so quiet, so
self-controlled? How could I recog
nize Georgo himself, kneeling on the
floor, by the side of a poor, miserable)
bed, holding in his arms the figure of
a man? A head whs resting on his
shoulder; his hands were smoothing
back the dark hair from a thin,
white faco on which his own tears
were fast falling.
"Come, my bov, no time to lose.
You know met Bob, dear, quick; sny
you know me your father, Bob; it's
only your father, iou must get out
of this. No one knows but me, Bob,
no one will know, no one will follow
you quick, quick." And with a sob
in his throat, he turned round and
He had forgotten my existence, but
now seemed to Hunk that I knew
ro explanation that this was his
lost son, whom he had tracked to
earth, and whose discovery was to
bring him so much credit. No thought
of the object for which he had coino.
The detective was not there; in his
place stood a broken-hearted father,
with but one thought in his mind-
how best to get his unhappy son out
of tho reach of the law which had so
nearly caught him.
"Come," he cried, in a hoarse whis
per to me, "help him to stand, ho is
weak; we must arrange for hiin."
I had looked round tho place. The
Bqualid poverty of the uncleaned
room, the well worn pack ot cards
lying on the chair by the bed, the
empty bottle on the other side, and
the stale smell of spirits and tobacco
in the room, and all told the same
talo, ond bore silent but unmistak
able witness to the complete mastery
of evil habits.
But of all this George seemed to see
The sharp, searching scrimity of tho
detective had given place to the loving
look of a father, to whom oil forgive
ness was possible.
With hasty hands he had taken off
his hat, gieatcoat and scarf, and was
now hurriedly putting them on tho
figure, who offered no help, and who
seemed too dazed and bewildered to
"Here is money, my boy," he
whispered in a husky voice; "It is all
I have now, but you shall have more;
and bore take care of this," hurriedly
writing a few words on a scrap of pa
per. "See I put it in the breast

of a house at Liverpool. Stay there
till you hear from me, and then you
shall get right away from this. There

what I have said? The money is hero

heart. What if some, one had come
on the clue which had helped him, and

Po not lose a moment. Down stairs
and then to your right. Tell him to

following him to the head of the stair
with broken utterances of endearment
and caution, George watched the un
steady figure descend the steps and
listened with strained ears until he
caught tho sound of wheels driving
o waited for what seemed to me a
long, long time in a silence which I
dared not break. And then we went
out into the wet and deserted street.
We stopped at tho corner where the
cab had waited, and I watched my
friend as he stood under tho gas lamp
looking out into the darkness with a
far away look in his eye, not knowing,
or at least not heeding, that the rain
was beating upon his uncovered head.
There is a better smile on his face
now than the smile he wore early in
the evening at the thought of his com
ing success. His reputation would
suffer greatly, beyond doubt, but what
is that to him?

How a Smart Officer Was Taken at
President Lincoln's sage proverb re
lative to tho disadvantage of "swap
ping horses in tho middle of the
stream" applies to many of tho ordi
nary affairs of life. Especially should
it be taken to heart by the joker who
is not sure of his gamo. Says the war
correspondent, Irving Montagu, in
'Camp and Studio."
During the Kusso-Turkish war, when
we were on very fchort commons, we
were one day about to do justice to a
fowl which we had weli! caught, and
duly cooked. On turning, wo were
surprised to find one of a long tram of
Cossack bullock-drivers, stopping and
looking down at us with envious curi
We began talking to him with play
ful badinage, rubbish which wo felt,
being in English, would do well enough
for an ill bred Muscovite. Ho listened
to our chaff with stolid indifference,
until Coningsby, dividing the fowl, and
holding up one half by the drumstick,
"Docs the fondness of cold fowl run
n your family, dear bov? This sort
of thing would suit you to a T."
in a moment, that clumsy waconer
became a new man. All nervous en
ergy nnd settled purpose, he sprang
suddenly forward, grasped tho fleshy
end of that drumstick in his crimv
fingers, and the next instant, had
mangled it, beyond reclaim.
ilo had taken Comngsbv at Ins word,
and wo were left on short tommons in
deed, though this surprise, sudden as
it was, was quite eclipsed by that
which followed, when that burly bullock-driver
replied, in excellent Enirlish:
"Ah, lust so! Sad, isn't it? Very
sad. Lost your leg! But not in the
service; no, not so bad as that any-
Then, turning to a dos which I had
not before noticed, he said:
"Crunch, poor Crunch! Hunsrrv
too? Never mind, there's tho bone.
Mako tho best of it. Thank you.
Good-morning. Remember, there may
be Britishers in Cossack garb, us well
as wolves in sheep s clothing."
A PORTUGUESE COURTSHIP.
Laborious Process by Which an
Acquaintance la Achieved,
The Portuguese are veryconservative
n their ideas of the position of women
in Hoeioty, and tlicy got their ideas
from their Moorish masters in bygone
centuries. Consequently cirls lead a
very shut-in life; thoy go regularly to
mass on Sunday mornings and take
occasional walks during the woek, al
ways accompanied by one or two
liaperons. Young men never call at
thehoiue, and if thoy did would notbe
admitted "except on business." This
strictness leaves but one way open for
an interchange of sentiments, and that
is tho window, and it is quite the thing
to make use of it. It is not considered
ill-bred to stare in Portugal; a, man
may stare at a girl he does not know as
long as he likes; lie must not do so to
a girl ho has been introdueetl to unless
she gives him some encouragement by
returning his glances. A girl will sit at
her window all the afternoon looking
into tho street, and her adorer, from
the street looks at her, and this is so
much the custom that it attracts no
attention from the passers-by. From
looks they proceed to bows, to smiles,
to a few words, t hen he follows her to
church, finds if she is going to the the
ater, and goes too, serenades her with
bis guitar on moonlight nights, and fin
ally an offer to her father. He is then re
ceived by the family, and allowed to
come to the house in a quiet way till
the weddin-,', and after that tho young
couple usually live either with her
parents or with his, and the even
tenor of their life continues.

New York's Arrogant IMntocrnoy.
Tho plutocratic idoa is taking a
firmer hold upon the governmental
departments of. , New York year by
year. Its latost manifestation is In the
management of tho so-called public
parks of the city. Wo have it upon
tho authority of the Commercial Ad
vertiser that children cannot play in
Central park without permits from the
commissioners, which are granted only
for spocitied days, but that nothing of
the kind is required of people who
drive in tho parks in carriages. This
discrimination in favor of tho wealthy
is not surprising m tho case of a com
munity that has been accustomed to
worship tho almighty dollar and sub
mit to be overridden by millionaires of
the Jay Gould stripe. Probably in no
other city in tho United States would
the people submit to tho exclusion of
children from its parks while they re
mained free to tho "carriage people."

The Condition that Confronts l .
The Wichita Eagle says: 'The
matter of freight rates is a subject
that should bo seriously considered by
every citizen of Kansas, be ho whole
saler, retailor or consumer. The
freight charges paid, by tho dealer
upon any article must lo added to tho
first cost of that article when he soils
it to the consumer, and thus the con
sumer pays tho freight in tho end. It
must, therefore, bo apparent to every
ono, that any advance in tho freight
rates to any section is reaily a tax
levied upon the consumers of that sec
tion. The consumers of Kansas havo
of lato had much to complain of. At
a time, when thero aro thousands of
cars of Kansas products to Ik- uauled
by tho railroads, it would be but
reasonable tt expect a lowering cf
freight rates in consequence of the
vast amount of business offered. But
it seems that even our prosperity is to
be levied upon by the railroads. For
several mouths past there has been a
systematic advanco in their charges.
First eamo the big advanco in tho
freight on sugar. Then tho live stock
rate was manipulated, and it need not
surprise anyone if the rates on wheat,
corn and other staples are shorl'.y
raised. What are the people of Kan
sas to do?" Atchison Champion.
Here wo have a system of railroads.
153.0C0 miles, worth ono and a half

at some nino billions. We are re
quired to pay for tho use of these roads,
the expenses of a wondorfully extrava
gant service; its extravagance in fact
bounded only by tho avarice of its
beuoticiacics, and besides this a revenue
on the nino billion capitalization.
Seven and a half billions of absolutely
fictitious valuo. Allowing nothing
whatever for tho numerous incidontai
if ems of theft and shystering by subal
torns. A 5 per cent dividend on this
amount equals $875,000,000. This
amount is greatly augmented, possibly
doubled, by the system of excessive
salaries, sinecure officers and various
schemes, by which money is juggled
from the companies' treasury into the
hands of individual members thereof
or their friends, and made to appear
as "expenses" in their reports. For
example: An improvement may be de
cided on which ought to cost, for in
stance $1,000. The contract is let to a
friend tor, say $10,000; -he sub-lets it
for perhaps $900. and quietly pockets
the difference. The $10, 000 is charged
to "expense" and the people pay it.
