(Copyright, 1K1, by Dally Btory Pub. Co )
Tbia la a story of a man wbo bad
talent and a woman wbo bad hope.
Hla name was but what matter it?
To those wbo met him moat frequent
ly be waa known aa the Silent Man.
He lived in a rear room on tbe third
floor of a tenement bouse, and kept
the wolf and tbe landlady at arm's
distance by writing (or the preas.
She was known as Old Simpson's
tomboy, (or the reason that In ber
younger days, when ahe wore short
skirts and waa rather negligent In
matters of toilet, there wasn't a boy
on tbe block wbo could outrun her.
or scale a six-foot fence In less time
than abe could.
Old Simpson, her father, waa the
cobbler, who pegged away on other
people's shoes in the basement of the
tenement, and allowed his daughter
to wear shoe that were out at the
heel and toe.
Tbe Silent Man was silent because
he waa lonely. For years be bad been
lonely, until, one day, out of be gloom
and the dreariness, with a smile on ber
face and a song on ber lips, she came
to him and laid ber band in hla.
Of evenings, after that, they were
wont to walk, arm in arm, down to
the brink of the river and listen to
the murmur of the ripples and see,
across the water, the silver line traced
by the moon, which she always spoke
of as tbe path of glory leading out
Into the afterwhlles.
8he, alone of all the world, knew of
the goodness of the Silent Man; but
that was only because she understood
him better than did any one else. She
believed in his greatness and called
blm ber genius.
If the Silent Man had ever met Suc
cess, It must have been in the dark
ness, for Success had passed him by
unnoticed. So, whenever she rested
her hands on his shoulders and smiled
up Into his eyes, where the shadows of
disappointment and despair constantly
lingered, and said: "Courage, dear,
tourage. Some day yon win oe famous
and the world will know you and love
you as I do," he would stroke her hair
and smile badly, calling her bis angel
with the dreamy eyes of hope.
"For some day," she would con
tinue, "you will write a story through
which tbe warm blood of your heart
will go pulsing and Its throbbing will
catch the ear of the great, busy world,
and It will pause to listen and will say,
'this is tbe work of a genius.'"
So it was that tbe Silent Man, en-
They were wont to walk.
cournged by the smiles of tho dreamy
eyes of hope, which he saw In hla
dreams, put all his energy Into the
work of his pen, and after whllo tho
critics really did say some kind things
She was delighted at this, but he,
who looked at matters from the prac
tical view point of dollars and cent,
could but realize that their marriage
was yet afar off. As for ber, she lost
none of her cheerfulness In the
shadow that continually enveloped
the Silent Man, but lived on, burning
he oil of hope to light her footsteps
down the pathway of the pasalng
Ob day the literary world was
startled by a novel from the pen of
an unknown writer. Critic vied with
each other In praising tbe many vivid,
brilliant passage In the book, and th
daily paper gave whole columns In
reviewing tbe latest masterpiece. Men
ac latter discos it; uurarj
gave readings from it; libraries! sought

anxious and curious to know tha
Identity of tha author. For tha book
had been published anonymously.
Reporters for the preas and literary
editors beaelged the publisher, im
ploring them to reveal tbe authorship.
But the publishers had pledged secrecy,
and bribes and entreaties were alike
Tbe discussion of the authorship of
"The Little Lady of the Tenement"
was waged vigorously by the metro
politan press and tbe magazine. Crit
ic differed In their opinion, but each
waa ready to prove by expert testi
mony on style or diction or some other
distinguishing peculiarity, that Mr.
"The Inspiration lie here, sir."
So-and-so was the only Individual wbo
could possibly be the author.
The Intense human interest main
tained from start to finish was pointed
out as absolute proof that the book
was the work of a certain writer,
famed (or that sort of thing.
These discussions only served to
keep public Interest in the book at
fever beat, and the sales Increased,
rather than diminished.
While the controversy still waged, j
a reporter for the Daily Harpoon was
assigned to report a fire which had
originated In tbe plant of the publish
ers of "The Little Lady, of the Tene
ment" While the reporter was yet
a block distant (rom the conflagration,
a piece of paper, which had arisen with
tbe smoke from the burning building
and bad been carried by tbe wind,
dropped at his feet. Partly through
curiosity and partly because of tbe In
nate Instinct of bis profession, the re
porter picked It up and put it in his
pocket. An hour later, having a little
leisure, be took the paper out of his
pocket and spread It upon his desk
in tbe Harpoon office.
When he discovered that the docu
ment was a copy of the contract be
tween the publshlng house and the au
thor of "The Little Lady of the Tene
ment" lie fairly jumped out of his
chair In hla astonishment A few mo
ments later be was closeted with the
city editor of his paper and was
promptly sent to obtain an interview
with tbe Silent Man.
That afternoon he knocked on the
door of a rear room on the third floor
of a tenement Receiving no re
sponse, he enquired of the landlady
where tbe occupant of the room could
"Out at Greenwood, most likely,"
she said. "He spends the most of his
time out there, sitting beside the grave
of Old Simpson's daughter, who died
a year ago."
To Greenwood the reporter went,
and there he found tbe Silent Man.
"You are the author of 'The Little
Lady of the Tenement,' I believe," be
The Silent Man was plainly annoyed
at the question, but finally replied:
"I am tbe writer of the book; the
Inspiration lies here, sir, under the
"It is a wonderful work," said tbe
"If it Is," replied tbe Silent Man,
sadly, "it Is only because tbe warm
blood of my heart goes pulsing through
every sentence. Sir, It is the life story
of the truest and best woman who ever
lived my little angel with the dreamy
eye of hope."
"Why do you prefer to keep the au
thorship a secret?" ventured the re
porter. "It will make you lamous.
"Because," replied the Silent Man,
"It is the true story of her love, of
ber devotion, of her sacrifices. To re
veal the authorship would mako me
famous, as you say, but It would also
lay bare the sacred confidence of my
lost love. That would be a dishonor,
sir, that no temptation would Induce
mo to commit." ,
When the reporter returned to his
office with hla story, his veins tingling
with the realization of his scoop, he
found tho literary editor talking to the

lamity suffered by the publishers that
the Identity of the author of 'The Lit

"Ye," replied the city editor, curtly.
"Then," resumed the literary editor,
emphatically, "I most decidedly protest
against ulng the knowledge thus

of which the Harpoon should never

The Irish soldiers afFontenoy be
queathed to their beloved France
names which became so many syn
onyms for honor and worth and fidel
ity. The Lallya and the Dillon have
ever since figured with the highest no
bility of the nation. We find more
than one Dillon raised to the dignity
of an archbishop; another Dillon, who
was married to a cousin of the future
Em preas Josephine, fought in America
with Lafayette, and later, during the
Reign of Terror in 1794, when he was
commander-in-chief of the French
army of the north, perished on the
guillotine. Again we find another
Irish descendant, Clarke, selected by
Napoleon as hla minister of war and
given tbe title of Duke of Feltre. We
find a Guilllaume Meagher occupying
one of tbe most prominent posts in the
East Indian trouble; later still, in the
early days of tbe nflw spent century,
we find an Abbe Maccarthy, famous as
a courted preacher of such extraordi
nary merit that an eminent authority,
M. Icard, for many year the taciturn
superior of the Seminary of St. Sulplce,
declared him to be head and shoulders
above Lacordalre; we find a Macdon
ald, of Highland ancestry, but of Irish
Brigade school, "the type of French
honor," as Bourrlenne call him, cre
ated a marshal of France by the great
emperor upon the battlefield at Wa
gram. "The general opinion was," con
tinued the secretary of Napoleon, "that
the elevation of Macdonald added less
to the marshal's military reputation
than it redounded to the honor of the
emperor." Just half a century after
Wagram we find a MacMahon winning
the battle of Magenta, receiving in re
compense the honor of a dukedom, and
destined later on to fill the highest
magistracy In the gift of the French

HE TOOK THE TRAIN.
Story of th. Spirt) v.
She was a tall finely-proportioned
woman, handsomely gowned, says the
Cleveland Plain Dealer. As she paced
along with slow and majestic tread
her voluminous draperies trailed after
her with a silked swish that was truly
Impressive. It must have been the
fluttering motion of the ruffles that at
tracted a little dog from one of the
neighboring porches. Here was some
thing to play with, and he ran after
the swishing flounces, pawing and bit
ing at them, and standing aside be
tween times to watch their fascinating
flutter. He was a very little dog one
of the toy variety, and a puppy at ttiat
and the dignified wearer of the
flounces seemed unaware of the atten
tions he was paying her swirling drap
eries. She was oblivious, even when
the doglet, tired of harrying the swlz
zllng mass, suddenly plumped himself
down in the midst of It. Whether the
motion pleased or frightened him It
would be hard to say, but he clung to
his perilous position as though used to
snatching free rides whenever occa
sion offered. Then his weight began to
tell, the train waa gathered up with a
jerk and the puppy rolled clear across
the sidewalk. He yelped, too, as much
as to say it didn't pay to take a train
when you only wanted a dog cart. But
the people who sat on the adjoining
porches smiled, and the pace of the
majestic woman was hastened to quick

"President Arthur was the best
dressed man I ever saw," said one of
the attendants at the White HouBe,
who has been there thirty years or
more, to a Star reporter. "He changed
shirts three times a day and suits al
most as often. He never wore the same
suit all day, and during the social sea
son changed as often as three or four
times each day. In the summer he was
fond of low-quartered shoes, and al
ways tied them with a wide silk
string. Ihaveboughthim hundreds of
pairs of silk shoe strings. He had not
less than fifty pairs of good shoes at
all times, and I know he did not have
less than one hundred shirts at a time.
He had more than a hundred pieces
of neckwear, too, President Arthur was
a mighty fine man and was good to all
the servants and others connected with
the White House." Washington Star.
