YE MAftlEN OF TODAY. 1 took a flu de aleclo maid To Hre the ocean roar and fret. The only tiling that maiden said U'uh, “My I l.’pw disagreeably wet!” And when ujK)n Mont Blanc bhe gazed Her soul knew not the slightest awe. And by this comment I was dazed— I “The cuteat tiling I ever saw!” But when ! took her to the play— j A play with laughs in every line— Twiistlien I heard that maiden say, “Now this, 1 think, is mighty fine!” And when I wrote a rondeau light. And in her white hand placed my rhyme. She seemed to l>e overpowered quite. And as she read it cried, “Sublime!” -Harper’s Bazar, j WEALTH. j “Laura,” said Mr. Cyrus Merivale to his wife as lie drew a close fitting pair of kid gloves over his largo, fluffy fin gers, "Jack Hoburton has been paying our Catherine considerable attention of late, and I shouldn’t be surprised if some thing came of it.” "1 hope so,” returned Mrs. Merivale, ■ languidly, “for he lias lots of money. ! people say.” “Oh, Hoburton is a bright young man | and will make his mark yet, there is no doubt about that, and he may be able to help us out of our miserable debts.” said j Mr. Merivale. Kate had many admirers, but Jack j Hoburton was the favorite. Jack was a ! steady young man, good looking, well educated anti the possessor of a nest egg that in the minds of Kate's worldly par ents would be sure to hatch unbounded wealth. The parents were gracious and paved the way to an excellent understanding between the young people, so the next winter when Kate went away to board ing school and Jack went to seek bis for tune in the great west matters were emi nently satisfactory ell around. “Yes,” said Mr. Merivale to his daugh ter. "Jack Hoburton will make a model husband, one that will tend to elevate i the family station. That's how it always j should be. 1 would be very much pained to have you marry nay one poorer than ourselves.” "Why. papa, said Kate in reply, “1 :wn not gob ; to marry Jack because he has a little money. 1 am going to marry him because 1 love him." “That’s right." laughed her father, ‘but the mo- v is a requisite that must not be de-;.. .1. for without it love' would be' a very tame affair indeed. If Jack were ' iow you in worldly station, tfjere would 1)3 a grotesqueness about love that would soon destroy it. In mar riage she so ;1 equilibrium should al-| ways be maintained." About two -ears after Jack’s engage ment r > Kg: a;id a year previous to the proposed celebration of the nuptials Mr. ; Merivalo startled the bosom of his fain- ■ :ly one day by suddenly entering their . midst greatly flustered anil perspiring from every pore. i He threw aims -if iuto a chair, and aft er prolonged silence that nearly fright ened the mother and daughter out of their senses informed t hem that at last .’ ‘the goal was in sight." •What goal?” the}- cried. • “At last." said he, “we shall rise to .out proper sta: ion. Henceforth we have *no need to envy Robertson. The cred itors who liav dogged me for the past 110 years shall be relegated along with mills marked paid' back to then- miserly ’level. In fine.” he added, “we are rich." • 'Explain; pray explain," they gasped. [ It's the Arapahoe mine,” said he. , “We are worth a cool hundred thousand, and people will think it a million.” The news of Mr. Merivale’s sudden acquisition of wealth spread rapidly, and people exaggerated the reports, as he had anticipated. New friends sprang up on every side. Wherever Kate ap peared sue was more than ever the cen ter of attraction. • Mr. Merivalo began to plan changes ;on a grand scale. A lot was purchased 'next to Robertson’s and preparations •were made for the erection of a magnifi cent mansion. • There were to be carriages, servants, •graveled walks, horses, dogs, fountains • -in short, all the attributes of aristoc •v.uoy. • One day. alter a long interview witn taiw wife Mr. Merivale summoned ^Lite “I wish to talk with yon about j ;nhat lei low Hoburton,” said he. “You i *.io not suppose, now, that he will try to lliold you to the engagement, do you?” he j Inquired nervously. * “What!” exclaimed the daughter, red- j •dening: “do you mean that he should j ^forsake me because we have been fortu nate?” * “1 mean,” returned the father more ;coolly, "that since our circumstances •fiave materially changed we should reg- j pi late ourselves accordingly. My pnn Ictnle is the same as I have always en deavored to inculcate. No one should ; ‘ever marry below Ills or her station. .Our station has risen, and those who •were once our social equals are no longer Jso. Personally, Hoburton is an estima ble young fellow, but I must insist that ‘the projected alliance be broken off at y»nce.” If Kate gave her father a look of scorn, lit was lost to him. for lie continued with out looking up: “You have always been a dutiful daughter, and I have implicit confidence in your obeying my wishes. We have a social status to maintain. It would be dying in the face of Providence’ to dis regard the advantages which our altered circumstances present. This you would bo doing were you to marry a poor • man.” "Why, father,” exclaimed the daugh :ter, "Mr. Hoburton is by no means poor. ,'Efe has, as you know, over $10,000, and jwith the assistance that you might now ’afford ho could easily add to it.” •Ah,” said her father, “yon forget .that while he has $10,000 yon will have •10 times that. He is altogether too .many rounds in the ladder below you, | .and the sooner he is informed of the change the better for all concerned. No, no,” said he, interrupting her as she was about to continue the argument, “I can never consent to the marriage. I should commit a flagrant breach of duty were I, to allow the equilibrium to be thus dis turbed. Aftjr you have thought the matter over candidly you will see that my position is the only one tenable.” The daughter sat for some time after her father had left the room, over whelmed with grief at his proposition. Finally she gathered up sufficient cour age to write to Jack, and in a wretched, tear stained scrawl she confessed her fa ther’s disapproval of the marriage. While she was penning this letter, full of endearments and protestations of con stancy—constancy, she declared, that would endure even if her father “should acquire ten millions”—the paternal Om ens was seated in his private office writ ing a letter of a contrary sentiment. Mr. Merivale wrote two letters, one to John Hohi •>. polit> !’• requesting the discontin a to his! daughter C. I-Iobur ton. pre>' time Min ing com. ■; that he would ha .lling upon this official t following week on busi ness relating to his mining interests. Mr. Merivale arrived in Denver on a Thursday afternoon and took apart ments at a hotel. Early in the evening, while inspecting his person in the mirror after the com pletion of Careful toilet, he was startled by a knock upon the door. He opened it and stepped back in un feigned astonishment, for who should be standing there but his once presumptive son-in-law, young Jack Hoburton. “I saw your name in the register,” said Jack, "and have taken the liberty to seek an interview.” “Step in,” said Mr. Merivale, and with cool pomposity he waved him to a chair. “Now,” said he as he seated himself, “my time is precious, 1 suppose you wish to confer concerning your unfor tunate relationship with my daughter, but upon that point I have nothing more to say than what I expressed in my let ter. I have duties to perform as a par ent that you will doubtless understand, and 1 hope yon will not dwell upon a point that must necessarily be painful to us both.” 1 ilia call tor the purpose you sug gest,” said Jack, “for 1 hoped that after all the circumstances were made known you might possibly not be so much op posed to our union. In the first place, you know. Kate and 1 love each other, and, in the second place, I have acquired sufficient property to maintain a wife.” “Yes. yes, all that is true, no doubt,” broke out Mr. Merivale, “but ‘sufficient' is only a relative word. My daughter's prospects are not what they were. I be lieve 1 made you aware of that in my letter, did I not?' 4 “Yes." re* ’ the yore-' man, contin uing hir, ’ • r. “but my prospect. cade some money, h safely in vested.” A frov; Merivale's brow, and in ....e aim walked rapidly up and down the room. “The subject annoys me,” said he. “and 1 must beg you to close this inter view. I have always considered you a promising young man. and if things were different I would say, ‘Marry my daughter and receive my blessing,’ but as it is, never, and I must ask that the matter end here.” He opened the door and Jack took leave—the perfect picture of a broken spirited youth. When well into the hall, however, he broke into an uproarious fit of laughter. The next morning, on repairing to the office of the Arapahoe Mining company, Mr. Merivale found the president absent and took a seat in the reception room. After he had waited for some time the door suddenly opened, and Jack Hobur ton entered. Mr. Merivale rose to his feet with an angry scowl. “Young man,” he blurted out, “I can not have you following me about like this. What do you mean?' The office boy stood staring at the two men with eyes and mouth wide open with astonishment. At a motion from Mr. Hobnrton be disappeared into a side room, where he sat for some time with eye and ear alter nately at the keyhole. “Mr. Merivale,” 6aid Hoburton, “you are laboring under a mistake. This is my place of business. I had no intention of following you, although, to be sure, I expected to meet you here in accordance with your letter of last week. Here it is now,” said he, picking out a bit of cor respondence from a pigeonhole. “D-do you mean to say that you are Joel C. Hoburton, president of the Ara pahoe Mining company?” cried Mr. Meri vale. “Why, yes,” replied Mr. Hoburton. Though somewhat chagrined, Mr. Merivale made no further opposition, and the nuptials were finally celebrated amid all the pomp and dignity apposite to such an occasion.—Exchange. Modern Heroes. The great conquerors of the world who have plunged their nations into cruel wars for the sake of their own glory and aggrandizement were pre-eminently the heroes of a past age, but we are grad ually learning that the true hero of his country is the man who seeks her best welfare, who defends her rights and con sults her interests, and who for this great purpose is ready to take praise or blame, to govern or to forbear, to live or to die. Our own Washington and Lincoln were men of this stamp, and we are justly prijud to have them head the list of our country’s heroes.—Philadelphia Ledger. Shears For Barbers. A pair of novel shears for barbers is a recent invention. The pivot between the blades is extended to carry a comb, which is parallel with the shears. By means of a nut the distance between the shears and the comb can be varied at will and the hair cut at any desired length.—New York Telegram At an < at in a Maine tow features was a boot oys, who tried to see . and lace up their shot -' si.

CHOLERINE IN PENNSYLVANIA. Swickly, Penn.: We had an epidem ic of Cholerine, as our physicians Palled 't, in this place lately and 1 made a great hit with Cliautberluin’s Colic, Cholera and Diarrhtea Remedy. Isold four dozen bottles of it in one week and have since sold nearly a gross. This Remedy did the work and was a big ad vertisement for .me. Several persons who had been troubled with diarrhoea f- r two or tlirpe weeks were cured by a few doses of this medicine. P. P Knapp, Ph. G. 25 ami 50 cent bottles tVr sale by L. W.

There is nothing in a name, but in a bottle of Wisdom’s Robertine there is a world of satisfaction to ladies of taste and refinement. It whitens and beautifies the skin without the injurious effects that attend the use of most cos metics. The only visible evidence of its use is abcautiful, clear and healthful complexion. Every lady using it recom mends it to her friends. Every time a stingy man looks at a dollar it shrinks his heart. WISDOM’S ROBERTINE Is the most delightful article ever pro duced for beautifying and preserving the complexion. Not only removes blemishes but leaves the skin as soft as velvet and as fresh looking as a morn ing glory. Used and endorsed by the elite of society and the stage, leading physicians say it is not only harmless but positively beneficial to the skin. The religion that is used in a cloak has no warmth in it. MOTHERS’ RECOMMENDATION. We are acquainted with many moth ers in Centerville who would not be without Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy ' in the house for a good many times its costs, and are recommending it every day. From personal experience we can say that it has broken up bad colds for oar children.—Centerville, South Da kota, Citizen. 50 cent bottles for sale by Li. W. McConnell & Co., druggists. It is never hard to find people who want to play first fiddle. ‘T tried all sorts of blood-purifiers,’’ said an old lady to a “cutter,’’ “and you can’t persuade me that any other Sarsaparilla is as good as Ayer’s.’’ There’s where she had him. She knew that Ayer's was the best—and so did he, hut it paid him better to sell a cheaper brand.
