He was a man who h.,d thought much of love, reading about it in all the ! dav: but lie had told himselt that Hof- i ace knew nothing of love. Of Petrarch and Laura he had thoiiirht: but even to l'ciraren uaura nau oeen a suo.ect lor It. 1 1 a expression rather than :or nassJon. , Prmce Artiiur, m his love for Gu never. ,ient nearer to the mark which he had fancied for himself. Imogen, in her love for Posthumus. gave to him a pict ure of all that love sTiouid be. It was thus that he had thought of himself in all his readings and as years had gone in he had told himself that for him there was to be uothing better than reading. Hut vet his mind had been pression of her face. He had told him- . sell distinctly that he was in lovo. and that his life had not gone so far for ward as to lea e him stranded on the j dry sand-hills. She was there living in ins house, subject to his orders, af fectionate aud docile: but. as far as he could judge, a perfect woman. And, as far as he could judge, there was no other man whom she loved. Then, with man)- doubtings, he asked, her the question, and he soon learned the truth but not the whole truth. There had been a man, but hc was one who seemed to have passed 03 and left his mark, and then to have gone on altogether out of sight- She "had e: a small evil in comnarison with :um ----?- uouui m- un.,:is ae- reat misfortune of his life. ceptance ot her would ma kc tue same . . . . . ... . . nlnr tfi tlin irirl hrflt lint w int. it lie liad brouglit tins girl home to his ., ., . , . , .. ... , house to bc the-ompaniou of his davs. & rcfs1e l ,to V .l!,c . lcr,? and she had come to have in his mouth !

She was of' wh a nature that, when she had given . herself u p in marriage. hc would ?ur-- y learn to lovo her husband. So he had accepted her promise, and allowed himself lor one hour to be a app , man. I Then John Gordon hatl come to his hou falling Uon it like the blast of a j storm. He had corneal once instan- hal felt himself compelled to do .-o 113 the cxi"eneies of the moment- It was impossible that he should jrive cither one or the other to understand that Hut gradually that feeling had disap- peared and the truth had come home to . huu. She was as much 1:1 love with John Gordon as could any girl le with j the man whom she adored. And the ' other rock on which he had depended w;.s gradually shhercd beueath his feet. He had fancied at lir.-t that the man had come back, as do main adventur ers, without the means 01 making a woman happy. It uas not for John Gordon that he was solicitous but for Mary Lawrie. If John Gordon were a pauper, or so neurh ?o as to be able to offer Mary no honm then it would clearly Ikj hi- dut3 not to allow the marriage. Iu Mich ca-e the result to him would be, if not heavenly, sweet enough at anv rate to satiafv his long ings. She would come to him. and ; John Gordon would depart to I-ondon. and to the world lnwond. and there 1 would be an end of him. Hut, it became , .,.., to u. nt,m5 rpner.-illv ilj.it tin; 1 ,.m' frtune h?u nnnu'.-n urh n ihi. ' And then there cam" home to him a finding that were thew so it would be his dut;- to make up for Mary's sake what was wanting since he had discovered of what caliber was the man himself. It w:ls at Mr. Hall's hous that the idea had first presented it.-elf to him with all the lirmuesi of a settled pro ject. It would he, he hatl said to him--elf. a great thing for a man to do. What, after all, is the mcanitig of love, but that a man should do hi- best to serve tiie woman he hnes? "Who cares a straw for him?"" he said to himself, as though to exempt hunnelf irom any idea of general chartt3. and to prove that all tiie pood which he intended to do wa-- to be done for love alone.

And 1 could not hold her to my bosom, knowing that she would so much rather be in the arms of another man." All this ho said to himself; but he said it in words fully formed, and with the thoughts on which the words wcro based clearly established, wheu he c:ime to t,.e eJU, of j,3 jour. npr hl. h:ul h,m3l.if (iriVl.n to tho holei, .-, ordercil hi:i aiuner. and ate it in M1,ituiJl? iU .npl,orted bv the ecstasy of ,jis ,ilf.UJr-lt Ii(, kliew th:it lhere wag before him a sh;ir cruel 1)Un,sh. mtjnU amI ,n a we.irv 1()n(.,v ifo ( There could be no happiness, no satis 1 faction, in store for him.

A certain amount of strength was now demanded of him. and he thought that iie would be abie to use it. "So, nr.- dear, not me; it 111:13 not be thcit you" should be come 1113- wiie. though all the promises under Heaven had been given.

I have meant well, but have been untortunate, 2Cow 3oa know the state of 1113 mind, than which nothing Is more fixed on this earth." It was thus that he would speak to hcr, and then he would turn aw 33: and the term of his misery would have commenced. On the next morning he got up and prepared for his interview with John Gordon. He walked up and down tbe sward of the Green Park, thinking to himself of the language which hc would use. If he could only tell the man that he hated him, while he surrendered to him the g.ri whom he Jovcd so dearly, it would be well. For in truth there was nothing of Christian charity in his heart towards John Gordon. 1T0 BE COXTn-rWXj 11 AJ l T Wial the Ftetarc Iroii-iea.

With the increase of railroad mileage comes the extension of the telegraph. The growth of thc Western Tniou Telegraph Compain in tiie past ten 3-ears, a- shown by their published le porLs. is an evidence of the rapid in crease of business during that period. This (.ompairv'had in 1-S7.5, l.Vl,iX) miles of wire; bvi.-, 4o2.)) miles of wire, showing an averago annual increase ol 27,000 miles of wire. Their earnings were in 187:?. $!,.'JU.000; in 1A "rlV. 40o,00,, an increase of over H per cent. The number of messages sent were in 187:'., 11. 100. 000: in lc-i:', 11, OOO.O'X. The number of employes was in 1.S7-J. 10.S0O; in 1S5, 'Jl.OoO. The increase in earnings has been in the face of a reduction of rates from 01 cents in 1873 to3S cents in 18S'. The consolidated opposition tclcgrajdi coni )anies claim to have G5.000 miles of wire and G00 offices. Twent3-five years ago a da3 message from "New York to (. hicago of ten words, on the produce market, cost $'2.'J); to dv a single message of twent3 words can bo sent over the same distance for twent)--hve cents. The Pacific Mail Steamship Compan3 in 187.5 did not absolutely own one iron steamer. (Jut of iheir earnings in the past ten )-ears the) lr.ivo paid tor 11) iron steamships, have a million dollars in their troasurv.and are now p.ing a ijuatterly dividend at the rate of live percent, per annum. The anthracite coal tra'Ie. was. in 1873, ll,-J-.U00 tons; in 1853, 31,7.0.. 000 tons, an increase of over 10,000.000 tons. The production of petroleum was, in 1S73, lS7.8l.-i, 000 gallons; in ISNk o0o.y31.CHO gallons.
