Mr. John" Clifford looked over tho
walnut find plate-glass railing around
liis "office" in the corner of the counting-room
of the Daily and Weekly
Herald, just as a sweet ringing laurh
from the composing-room opposite
canto to Ins ears.
'It's Lesley Lord that is," Peter
Furman, the foreman, said, as he saw
the look of inquiry ou Mr. Clifford's
face. As pretty a jrirl as ever stepped
in shoes, but spoiled aud humoured
until she thinks she can do as s!ie likes."
Mr. Clifford looked tlitouli tho open
tloor ho was the r.cw book-keeper,
just entering upou his duties that morn
ing. "So that is Miss Lord the younoj
lady with tho round white arms aud
shiuing teeth, and the hair piled in a
gold-colored mass on top of her head ?
Well, Furman, she is rather good-looking
certainly not as handsome as one
would be led to think from vour descrip
tion." Several hours later, when Mr. Clif
ford was thinking it was nearly time
for 6upper, a merry little clatter of
boot-heels sounded on the floor, coming
towards hisjjoffice, and he looked up to
see Miss Lesley Lord standing at the
dome-shaped opening in front of him.
"Mr. Clifford," she said, with a
graceful little arch of her pretty eye
brows "at least, I suppose it is Mr.
Clifford, the new book-keeper?"
"I am at your service," he responded,
looking straightforward at tho flushed
dimpled cheeks and little while teeth.
"1 would like to have an advance on
Saturday night's pay, if you please."
Tho "if you please" was very much
at variance with the imperiousness of
"You would like an advance?" he
reiterated gravely, somewhat surprised.
Lesley gave a provoked little toss of
iier head, tapped her gloved fingers on
the plate-glass shelf.
"That is what I said, I believe."
"Am I to understand it is the custom
in this ofiice to advance money to the
ernplo)"es upon all occasions?"
"I don't know anything about what
the employes do; I Know I always re
ceive an advance when I ask it."
Mr. Clifford closed his day-book
"I think the i les of the office forbid
such a precedent, Miss Lord. Frank,"
to the office-boy busily directing the
mail, "just light up; will you ?"
Lesley stood perfectly astonished at
the polite yet cavalier treatment she
had received. The idea! This new man
putting on such airs to her the ac
knowledged belle and beauty of the girls
who set typo in the Herald composing
room. Frank lighted the gas, and Mr. Clif
ford began counting the money in tho
ash-box, while Lesley, in a passion,
stood staring rf$him.
"You don't intend to let me have it?"
she said presently, in a low indignant
voice that was irresistibly charming for
"Certainly not you nor anyone.'
And Lesley sent him one look, per.
fectly savage with anger.
An hour later, in the midst of a driv
ing rain-storm, Mr. Clifford stepped
out of the tram-car in a pretty, lonely
suburb of the city, to which he was an
entire stranger and after looking
about him several minutes, sans um
brella or overshoes, he began dimly to
reaiiz-.! that he did not kuow which of
the half-dozeu houses within sight was
tiie one where his new landlady, Mrs.
"A charming position to find oneself
in," he thought, as the rain soaked
through his clothes, and he discovered
that the mud was disagreeably uncer
ta'n to wade through, e-pecially in the
Til make a bee-line for the nearest
light," he decided, and forthwith set
out for a little cottage, not so appalling
ly far off. where he arrived in duo time,
and, shivering with the cold dampness
of his clothe?, he was cheered by tho
prompt opening of the door by a plaei !
faced elderly lady, who answered him
in the cheeriest, most unconventional
"Mrs. Rawson's ! Why, you won't
think of going away up th-re in such a
fetorm as this. Come iu, and let me see
if I can't mako you comfort able for a
wnile. I've got a boy just about your
age, somewhere in the West and if he
should bo out in the storm "
Her mother-love was sweet and strong
on her gently womanly face, and he
stepped in, gladly yet reluctantly.
"I am so muddy and dripping I am
'John Clifford, book-keeper at the
Herald office, ma1 am, anil a stranger in
His hostess insisted on his going in,
and in less than no time ho was feeling
decidedly comfortable beside the open
fire, in borrowed slippers and rapidly
"Tho new book-keeper of the Herald
office, I think j-ou said ? My niece
works there and she's been talking
about the 'new man' for a week or so
I believe all the girls were anxious
to see you, Mr. Clifford."
The kindly lady bustled about to get
the supper ready in tho little kitchen,
and at the latest stage of proceedings,
she took the lamp out with her, while
she broiled the ham.
"You won't mind sitting in the fire
light a minute or two, I know. We're
poor fol3, and have to economise in
And a second after the lamp had gone,
and the savory odor of the broiling
ham floated in to his hungry sense, a
6ide-door opened, and somebody came
in, bringing a cool rainy feeling with
her for it was a girl, in waterproof
"I came so near staying at Jenny
Ball's for supper, auntie 1 would have
stayed only I was afraid you'd bo wor
ried about me. We did have so much
to talk about," and a saucy little laugh
rippled through tho dusk, as she
plumped herself down on the floor to
lake off her rubbers. "Tbo new book
keeper came, auntie just tho hand
somest fellow, with oh heavenly eyes
and a lovely moustache, but he is too
mean and hateful for anything to me,
auntie, you wouldn't believe it, would
you ? Well wo girls'll punish him!
We've made a conspiracy between us,
and I'm to make him fall in love with
me I can, I kuow and then I am to
reject hiin haughtily, and let
Auntie, have you been in the cellar all
this time I've been talking?"
And as Mrs. Cummings appeared at
the head of the cellar stairs, Lesley
Lord picked up tho lamp and carried it
back into the little dining-room, while

He laughed as he extended his hand,

"I didn't know you were here,"
Lesley stammered hysterically, and then
she did tho best possible thing under
the circiimstances laughed heartily.
"I daresay I shall never hear the last
of it," she said. "Well, Mr. Clifford,
I can stand it if you can."
"If you will let me, I will stay the re

She hestitated with a little glance at
his handsome face.

face to his breast.
"Because I do love you," was her re

And that was the delightful end of

Don't Rash the Cattle.
In a recent conversation with a
prominent stock dealer and Bhipper
concerning present prices and what
were the prospects for cattlemen and
farmers, he remarked that from fear
of a short supply of feed a great many
immature animals were just now be
ing hurried on the market; thousands
are unsalable for beef and not in the
best conditiou, after leng journeys, to
ship any great distance to be fed.
Corn and grass is short in all direc
tions, south and west of Chicago as far
as the Missouri valley, consequently
feed is high, the usual nnmber of Ipur-'
chasers is reduced in expectation that
this rush to get rid of the surplus
steck will continue, as complaint of
"short crop" is on the increase. Ad
vice is worthless, as the farmer ought
to know how many he can winter by
this time, and must in some manner
if at a loss dispose of the remainder.
The price of geod cattle and lioga
are higher and not likely to bo mater
ially reduced. Fat cattle will probably
advance later in the season. In the
latter part of July none thought there
could possibly be a scarcity, and that
corn would take such a jump. But
the drought has affected the country
in almost every section, and it is prob
able that an unusual scarcity will
force prices of grain higher, and the
market will be crowded with "ale"
cattle. The circumstances are serious
ly embarassing to stock owners ie-very-where.
Thoso of Nebraska are in a
better situation to take care of their
entire heard than in most any other
direction, as the climate and latitude
favor them, and there is plenty of
grass on unoccupied land, and cattle
will not starve on hay.
If possible to prevent, do not rush
your stock on to the market in its
present unsettled condition. Nebras
ka has more grain in proportion to the
number of acres under cultivation
than both Iowa and Illinois, and ex
cepting a few localities, an immense
grass crop, much of which is secured,
and many thousand tons will vet go
into the stack. Keep your cattle, at
least those unfit for present demand.
IIow Gambling in Grain, etc., is Done.
During two or three years past, and
not so greatly as now, the methods of
the Stock Exchange have been intro
duced into the produce markets, and
hundreds of men in leading cities, net
ably in Chicago, Toledo St. Leuis, Bal
timore, Cincinnati, and New York are
daily betting millions of dollars upon
the probable prices of wheat, flour,
corn, oats, lard, pork, bacon, etc. To
illustrate: Mr. A. offers to deliver to
Mr. B. a million bushels of No. 2 Red
wheat at 31.22 per bushel, on the 31st.
day of August, the (Mr. A.) does not
own a single bushel of wheat, aud
does not expect to. Mr. B. takes the
takes the offer and makes a deposit of
a small portion of the price or "mar
gin." In this case Mr. A. is said to be
-short" and Mr. B. "long:' Mr. A. is
short of what he has agreed to deliver.
If the closing sale of this grade of
wheat on Aug. Slst is only 81.20, Mr.
B. pays Mr. A. 2 cents a bushel or
620.000. But if the price is 81.23, Mr.
A. pays Mr. B. li cents a bushel, or
330,000. Usually no wheat is actu
ally delivered. Sometimes, however,
if there is a limited supply of wheat
wheat available, and Mr. B. has capi
tal enough, he secretly buys up all
there is; he gets up a 'corner" in
wheat; and when settling day comes,
he may require Mr. A. to deliver the
wheat or he may try to get others to
buy it, while he refuses to sell until
31.30, or S1.40 or even 81.50 is offered,
and the price of the day is fixed at
that rate. In the last named case, Mr.
A. would have to pay him the differ
ence between 31.22 and $1.50 which
on a million bushels would be 28x1,
000,000, or 3280,009. If, on the con
trary, the price would be beat down
on the settling day to 81.00 per bushel,
Mr. B. would have to pay Mr. A. 22
cents on a bushel, or $22,000. We
named only two individuals, but there
are hundreds or thousands of persons
doing the same thing, some betting on
a few thousand bushels, others on
hundreds of thousands, and a few
heavy operators on millions. In times
of activity and excitement, the specu
lative sales of wheat during a few
days amount to more than the entire
surplus crop of the country during a
year. The operators are in two
classes; those like Mr. A. are "shorts;"
and those like Mr. B. are "longs". Pre
cisely the same operations are taking
place with reference to ether grades
of wheat, corn, oats, lard, pork, etc.
The same man often operates in sev
eral kinds of produce, and may be
"Shert" of one and "long" of another.
Oae speculator will often be short for
August delivery; long for September;
and short or long for October, er for

Curiosities of Earth.

they come to a bed of chalk, which
they bore with an auger livj feet deep.
They then withdraw from tho pit be
fore the auger is removed, and upon
its extraction the water bursts through
the apertnro with great violence, and
quickly fills tho newly-made well,
which continues full, and is affected
neither by rains nor drought. But what
is the most remarkable in the operation
is the layer of earth as wo descend. At
tho depth of fourteen feet are found
the ruins of an ancient city, paved
streets, houses, floors and different
pieces of mason work. Under this ia
