A CRUSHED HEART.
What a lovely face!" And Sir Au
brey Trevelyan turned in lii s:i-'d"o
that he might have a better look :it the
young girl who had just passed him.
lie had seen her coming when she
was a long distance down the road,
and had noted admiringly what enviable
youth and vitality there was in her
springy step and carriage.
Andthen. as she came near him, and
looked up, he realized that he was face
to face with the most glorious eyes that
ever had been lifted to his and he was
thirty-live, and felt forty-live, and had
travelled half over the world, and b; n
presented to charming women without
number, and had broken more hearts
than he could remember.
Handsome, distingue, wealthy, nris
tocratic, disgusted with life, wearied
with the satiety of good thiugs. that had
all his life been laid at his feet for his
taking; he had rushed away from t n
and had shut himself up atSaxfiiii.ini
Towers, his ancestral home, with his
books, his horses, his thoughts.deaf and
dumb to the score of letters every post
brought him beseeching his return
evon cruelly negligent of Maud I ire re
ton's coaxing notes who, certainly of
all women, had the best right to com
mand him, seeing that he had been her
most devoted worshipper for the past
Hut now, as he passed Violet Ilarland,
her dark hair peeping out in half-curling
rings on her low, white forehead,
her cheeks Hushed, her lips warmly,
lusciously red. and her eyes!
Sir Aubrey felt as though an electric
shock had been administered as they
met in a brief, casual glance, and act
ing upon his impulse a tiling he was
in the habit of doing, as all your hand
some, sellish men are he reined his
horse slufrply in, bringing it back upon
its haunches in quivering subjection to
his low, authoritative word, his strong
And then he turned round, more in
terest in his face than anyone had seen
there in the last live years.
Just as Violet turned round impelled
by that mysterious psycholgical iiillu
enco we all have felt; and met hi3
glance, and slipped on a treacherous
stone, and did not get up.
Sir Aubrey was out of the saddle and
at ber side in a second.
"Are you hurt? Let me assist you to
rise. Miss "
A deathly whiteness was on her face
that made her more startliugly lovely
'I am afraid I have sprained my
ankle it was so stupid of me to fall."
What a voice even through its vi
brations of ill-concealed suffering.
"I hone not surely such a little fall
But while he spoke Violet fainted at
There was but one tiling to do, and
in the name of common humanity. Sir
Aubrey Trevelyan picked the uncon
scious girl up, as gentty as a woman
might have done, as only a strong man
could have done, and carried his insen
sible burden through the gate he had
only just quitted, leaving his horse
where it stood in the road.
And when, ten minutes later, Violet
woke to find herself on the lounge in
the magniticent library, and Dr. Bran
don, her own physician, and Mrs. Hum
phreys, the housekeeper at Saxenhani
Towers, in attendance, while Sir Au
bre", anxious, handsome, interested,
stood watching the proceedings, she
knew her life romance had begun.
And a week from the time he and
Dr. Brandon had driven her home from
the Towers to her own more modest
home. Sir Aubrey Trevelyan was ready
for. almost anything where she was con
cerned. Not a day but ho called at the little,
gray cottage where she and her silent,
slernfaced sister lived. Books, hot
it will repay you.
S. d2 C.
house flowers, hot-houso fruits noth
ing was too good, too expensive for
her, and to see her eyes light up at
eight of him, to watch her resolute ef
forts to hide from him the love for him
that was growing eveiy day, was the
keenest pleasure that had come to him
for many a year.
For she loved him. How could it
have been otherwise? His gentle mas
terfulness, his caressing imperiousness,
swayed her as a strong wind does the
lily on its stem, and she was so essen
tially a woman that she thoroughly en
joyed being governed.
So much was crowded into that little
ten days' time, and although Sir Aubrey
had by some unaccountable power,
quite astonishingly strange to himself,
refrained from a direct avowal of his
passion for her, yet U103' botli under
stood it as well as though the most ex
plicit words had been used.
Violet was perfectly happy. Those
days when she was a prisoner on her
lounge had been days fuller of rapture
than she had ever imagined life could
Proud, honorable, unsuspicious, she
never had a thought that Sir Aubrey's
love for her was not as loyal u hers
for him; and so when he came one day
and told her that he was called to Lon
don on some business for a day or so,
but would come back at the very earli
est moment, she never, for a second,
Xor did Sir Aubrey doubt himself
that he would return. Miss Brereton
had telegraphed him that he must come,
or one of her entertainments would fall
Hat. And just a little ashamed of
having buried himself in the country so
long, and half wondering what he would
say, and more than a little fearful
that some one would fathom the attrac
tion, he decided to obey his fair friend's
And then come back.
He fully meant it give him all the
credit he deserves. But, when he came
back among his associates, when he
was at home again among the fashion
able leaders of society, and saw the
difference between them and the girl
he had so madly dreamed of placing at
the head of his own table
It was a terrible struggle perhaps
the first that Sir Anbrey Trevelyan had
ever had with himself. All his life the
way had been made smooth to him,
and he had only to go whichever way
suited him best.
But now he realized lhat a decisive
choice must be made between the little
dark-eyed girl in the country, who suit
ed his heart as no other ever had, or
ever would, and the fashionable woman
who would do such royal honor to his
name, his taste, who would queen it in
society as his wife would be expected to
Amid all the rapturous welcomes that
greeted him, that ci i -iio i, stern, un
compromising, star u iii:ii eretually
in the face. One hour be nad in-:irly !
decided to go back to Saxenhani, take
Violet, and eschew fashionable life
the next, he realized with a groan, how
insupportable :i life would be that had
no excitement, 110 whirl of gaiety in it.
And so the days went on. and, s:i 1
undecided, ho did not go back da
during which Violet waited, at first a l
sweet patience, full of trusting hap i
ness, then busy making excuses for
He made his decision one day, and,
with the impatient impulse so charac
teristic of him, 'gave himself no rest un
til he had sealed his bargain the bar
gain which in his very soul he knew
was the wrong one, and yet the only
oiift that the iron bands of custom and
pride and social obligation permitted. 1
He went straight to Maud Brereton, j
and found her as usual gracious", ele- j
gant, the very woman, he told himself
in a feverish sort of exultation, who ;
would do him creiiit.

A Meager Excuse.
The young man who pleads poverty
and a meager salary as an excuse fo?
refraining from marriage will do well
to remember the pluck of Thomas A.
Scott, the great railroad magnate, and
Charles A. Dana, the great journalist.
The former embarKed upon the matri
monial sea with a salary of fifty dollars
per month, and the latter with a salary
of five dollars per week. Marriage,
however, was not the only thing that

A remarkable incident occurred at
East Baltimore the other day during a
rain storm. A large flock of swallows
suddenly made their appearance, and
began to descend the chimney of the
house of police-officer Wolff. They
followed in such numbers that the lead,
ers were driven to the base of the chim
ney, and the noise they made led Mr.
Wolff to remove the fireboard, when tht
birds quickly filled the room, seeking
exit. The doors and windows were
opened, and they flew out. There were
thousands of birds engaged iu this
strange demonstration, which lasted for
sometime, when the swallows. Hilling

A Good Memory.
The late James T. Fields possessed a
remarkable memory. Some years ago
a gentleman, thinking to puzzle him at
a dinner part, informed the guests
prior to Mr. Fields' arrival that he had
himself written some poetry, and in
tended to submit it to Mr. Fields as
Southey's, and inquire in which one
of his poems the lines occurred. At the
proper moment, therefore, after the
guests were seated, he began: "Friend
Fields, 1 have been a good deal exer
cised of late in trying to find in South
ey's poems his well-known lines running
thus can you tell us what time he
wrote them?" "I do not remember to
have met with them before," replied
Mr. Fields, "and there were only two
Fieriods in Southey's life when such
ines could have been written by him."
"When were those?" asked the witty
questioner. "Somewhere," said Mr.
Fields, "about that early period of his
existence when he was having the
measles, and cutting his first teeth; or
near the close of his life, when his brain
had softened and he had fallen into

Artesian "Wells in New York.
New York Evening Mail.
Much interest wus felt in the under
taking, about a year ago, of boring an
artesian wc'.l under the FifMi Avenue
Hotel. Ti e drill was driven down to a
depth of 2,100 feet, almost half a mile,
but no important veiu of water was
struck, and the enterprise was aban
doned. It is not difficult, however, to
secure an ample supply of water by
such boring, especially below Twenty
third street, the depth of the forty or
fifty artesian wells now in use here be
ing from 3u0 to 500 feet. One of the
most successful is that of Bauer & Betz,
brewers, which is oOO feet deep, and
jields 2,000 barrels of water daily.
The cost of an artesian well is aiiout
$3,000. so that none but large consum
ers of wat.-r find it an object to bore
such wells. Many brewers, manufac
turers, hotel-keepers, and other large
consumers of Croton, pay a water-tax
of from $0,000 to $10,000 a year; and
for them it is economy to bore artesian
welis, the water of which is free from
vegetable matter and other surface im
purities. Its temperature. o2 degrees
the whole year, is so low that little ice
is required where it is used. Mr, Jesse
Button, the contractor, who has been
b .ring wells for thirty years, suggests
that artesian wells might be bored
along the Croton acqueduct to increase
the water supply. He thinks it would
be 1 o.s.-i' le to add 100,000 barrels a
day to the Croton supply from oi '"ell.

The Revised New Testament.
After all, the great mass of religi. us
people take kindly to the new text of
the revised New Testament. It jarred
terribly on the sensibilities of those
who reverence the ancient text to see
the familiar wording changed ; but still
words are things, and mistranslations
.nd errors of text have no place in a
work deemed sacred by so many of
our people. Indeed, a fault found
with the revisers is nof that they
went too far in making alterations,
but they did not go far enough. They
feared to face denominational preju
dice, and in many cases made verbal
alterations when the whole text
should have been recast. The time
will come, when still another revision
will be demanded. Demonst's
