Every one in the vicinity of Metdrum
avenue and Champlalr street , Detroit ,
knows Mrs. McDonald , and many a
neighbor has reason to feel grateful to
her for the kind and friendly interest
she has manifested In cases of Illness.
She is a kind-hearted friend , a natural
nurse , and an intelligent and refined
To a reporter she recently talked at
some length about Dr. William's Pink
Pills , giving some very interesting Instances -
stances In her own immediate knowledge -
edge of marvelous cures , and the universal -
versal beneficence of the remedy to
those who had used it.
" I have reason to know , " said Mrs.
McDonald , "something of the worth of
this medicine , * or it has been demonstrated -
strated in my own immediate family.
My daughter Ktttie is attending high

vaccinated. I took her over to Dr. Jame-
son and he vaccinated her. I never saw
such an arm in my life and the doctor
said he never did. She was broken out
on her shoulder's and back and was just
as sick as she could be. To add to it

was in misery. She Is naturally of a

A Joke That Is Not half True.
It is a common joke that when a
r man's wife is out of town he writes a
mournful letter , and then goes around
and has a high &d time. There is not
much in that joke. It does not begin
to do duty with the mother-in-law joke ,
and that is pushed far beyond its
deserts. The fact is that out of a dozen
men whose wives are out of the city
for the summer there will be at least
eleven who are really lonely and , in
fact. put in a very miserable time.
' . 'hey do not feel willing to acknotvl-
I edge it at first , and few like to have
sympathy thrust upon them , but there
are mighty few who do not in their
hearts pay the highest kind of tribute
to their wives and wish for their re

The color mounted to the young
man's cheek. ,

moment of reflection.
"Oh , carry me away from Malta on

clinging to his arm.

The hour of departure of the Italian
steamship Elettrico approached. ' 'he
confusion and bustle incident to sailing -
ing increased rather than diminished
as the day advanced.
Mrs. Fillingliamn trotted about to
secure the best of evervthing for her
invalid husband during the short
voyage to Messina.

and very much wrapped up in shawls ,
trade petulant responses to the solicitous -
ous inquiries of the urbane Mn Brown.
Melita was bored and out of spirits.
She displayed a fickleness which is
occasionally observable in birds of
song and scarcely glanced at the Island
where her own debut in opera had
been successfully achieved.

great west , and his bevy of children ,

Time keen eye of Captain Blake
noticed 'a lady among the passengers
with sudden curiosity.
The lady stood alone. She was enveloped -
veloped in a brown cloak ; with a
hood , and wore on her head a small
straw hat , with a veil of black lace
attached , which effectually concealed
The captain roamed around this
solitary figure , inspiredby a suspicion ,
and endeavored to gain a closer inspection -
spection of her face , l utshe averted
her head , as if disturbed by his interest -
est , fixing her gaze with a timid and
melancholy insistence on the shore.
. 'rime summons for all loiterers to
seek land was given , and Captain
Blake prepared reluctantly to depart.
Here was a little drama in real life ,
and lie longed to serve as cynical spec-
tator. Here was a baffling mystery under -
der his very gaze , and he wished to
solve it to his own satisfaction.
The agitation of the unknown one
in the brown cloak became marked.
She shrank nearer the bulwark , and
grasped the railing with a nervous I
hand , while her shoulders moved convulsively -
vulsively , as if she was unable to repress -
press some powerful emotion.
.txt this critical juncture a small boat
anproached , and Arthur Curzon sprang
on board of the Elettrico just as the
packet was about to swing from her
My dear fellow ! " exclaimed Capt
Blake , with vivacity. "Areyou oft on
leave ? "
"Yes , " was the brief response.
"And I am chained to this rock of
steel for several months longer , "
grumbled the soldier.
Lieut Curzon had never appeared
more animated and handsome timan in
civiian's : dress on this occasion. He
hastened to the traveler in time brown
"Am hate ? " he demanded , in cheerful -
ful accents. -
"Yes You are very late , " she replied -
plied , in a low tremulous voice.
Tlrey talked together earnestly for
a long time , quite oblivious of sur-
The young olicer , on quitting Dolores -
ores at an earlier hour , had sought the
presence of his kinsman , the commander -
der of H.M.S. Sparrow , to claim the
promised leave of absence. Ile had
no misgivings as to the result , and
possibly the conversation with his
cousin Mrs. Griffith recurred to his
mind. The amiable hostess had intimated -
mated her conviction that time stern
ruler of the ship would be disposed to
overlook all peccadilloes. A brief and
stormy interview had nevertheless ensued -
sued , of which the full particulars
were not given by either of the par-
ticipants. The captain made subsequent -
quent allusion to headstrong young
men who threatened to throw up their
commissions if thwarted in their dear
est wishes of. the moment.
Xae vessel once in motion , Lieut.
- - - -----a--
Curzon led his companion to time Fill-
inghams. What was the amazement
and indignation of worthy Mrs. Fill-
ingham at beholding Dolores , who
stood before her pale and frightened ,
mind holding her little dog Florio in
the ample sleeve of her traveling garment -
"Oh , my dear child ! " exclaimed the
matron. "lIo v could you take such a
very rash step ! "
"Ile loves me , and I love him , and
that is all we care about in the world , "
faltered the girl , with a sob.
"But think of your poor grand-
papa ! "
"Grandpapa will not miss me , " retorted -
torted Dolores , stealing a deprecating
glance at the severe and disapproving
countenance of Mrs. Fillingham.
"I am quite sure he will miss you , "
rejoined the older woman.
"Ile never cared about me at all , "
cried Dolores , with a sudden and passionate -
sionate outburst at wrong.
"Lieutenant Curzon , I consider your
conduct as simply abominable , " said
ilrs. Fillingham , becoming red in the
face. " 1 will have nothing to do with
Then she turned away , as if to clearly -
ly demonstrate that she washed her
hands of a very bad business.
The Ancient Mariner removed his
spectacles , and polished the grasses on
a silk pocket-handkerchief.
Dolores clung to her lovers arm ,
aghast and bewildered by this brusque ,
Iid Capt. Fillinghamn wink at Licut
Curzon ? It cannot be positively asserted
serted that the old gentleman
was guilty of such an undignified
proceeding on this grave occasion ,
yet assuredly a highly suspicious
trembling of the right eyelid was perceptible -
ceptible , while his benevolent features -
ures failed to reflect the anger of his
spouse He even smiled at the terrified -
rified Dolores , and patted her hand re-
"There is no use in crying over
spilled milk , you know , " he reasoned
at Iength. "What are your plans ? "
Lieut. Curzon eagerly unfolded his
projects. IIe intended to seek Switzerland -
erland at the nearest point of the Canton -
ton Tessin , get married and journey
on to Paris.
If Dolores could be placed under time
charge of Mts. Fillingham in the interval -
terval , all scandal would be avoided
and busy tongues at Malta efi ° ectually
silenced. It is true that the lover
j thought of public opinion for the first
time as the shores of Dolores' island
home faded in the distance.
The young hypocrite pleaded his
cause warmly and well lie did not
hesitate to remind the ancient mariner
that he had been his father's best man
at his wedding , and to hint the acceptability -
ceptability of his giving away a bride
of another generation.
The comrade of Admiral Jack listened -
ened attentively. What reminiscences
did the voice of his companion evoke ?
his heart warmed toward the rash
couple and he felt young again. lie
nodded acquiescence and made the
culprits take a seat bride him on the
deck , thus assuring them of his own
protection and approval.
An hour later Mrs. Fillingham , in
relenting mood , had given time pale
Dolores a cup of tea , with plenty of
sugar , and held the whimpering and
doleful Florio on her lap.
In the meanwhile , Capt. Blake
strolled into Mrs. Griflith's tea room ,
where the Vicar , with the weak chest ,
was discoursing on shells with Miss
"Our friend time lieutenant is off on
leave of absence , " said the airy in-
'Who ? " demanded the hostess , with
an unusual inflection of sharpness in
her tone ,
' "Lieut. Curzon , " replied Capt. Blake ,
accepting cream at the hand of the
hostess. "The pretty Maltese was on
"Are you jealous , Capt. Blake ? " inquired -
quired Miss Symthe.
Not a trace of displeasure was perceptible -
ceptible on her fair face , nor a tremo
of agitation in her soft voice , as she
turned to the tea-urn.
IIe laughed his grating little laugh.
"I am not a marrying man. "
'She is very strong. "
The clergyman resumed his thread
of talk , pleased with time graceful
deference of an intelligent listener :
"I should like to show you my cabinet -
net of shells , Miss EthelI have sonic
rather good specimens"
Capt. Blake stirred the contents of
his cup and gazed into the depths , as
if he suspected some private jest of
lurking at the bottom.
"I always have bet ten to one on the
chances of the parson in my own
mind , " he thought. "The living is an
uncommonly rood one , I am told. "
The Island of Malta lessened , faded ,
and disappeared altogether to the
passengers of the Elettrico , as the
packet made her way in the direction
of Messina over the calm , blue Mediterranean -
The day had held is its unfolding
hours the elements of marvelous
A fortnight later a young man sat
at a piano in the salon of a hotel of
the Avenue de l'Opera at Paris , strumming -
ming a bar of the Swallow waltz of
Strauss , while a young woman paused '
in the embrasure of a window , holding -
ing a tiny dog in her arms
The night was rainy , and the great
globes of the ciectric light shone on

The young woman drew. from the
folds of her dress a Maltese cross She
gazed at it for a long time , and then
kissed it with reverence.
Time trinket slipped from her fingers ,
and fell on time floor. Stooping hastily
to recover it , she trod on the cross ,
and broke it. She burst into tears.
"I dreamed of grandpapa last night , "
she sobbed. "Jie seemed to be calling -
ing for me. Oh , poor , old grandpapa !

down. Take me back to the Watch

who had just sus-
tamed a crushing blow. Ile wiped his
moist brow , and gazed , vacantly ,
"Good God ! " he groaned , his pinched
features contracting with anxiety and
fear. "Who would have ever believed
it ? how could I have forseen this day ?
Accursed knaves ! "
Two weeks earlier his agitation
might have been attributed to the
flight of his granddaughter ; but , in
fact , the old man had sustained her
loss with remarkable equanimity and
"It is her Spanish blood , " he had
muttered aloud , after reading the note
written by Dolores before sailing.
"She must be full of tricks as she
grows older- . Let her go , once for
all ! "
In his profound egotism he might
even have been suspected of a sentiment -
ment of relief that a burthen was re-
moved. Sorrow , apprehension , regret -
gret for the rash step taken by a
young girl , wholly ignorant of the
world-did these paternal misgivings
fail to touch the heart of Jacob Deal-
try ? lie gave no sign.
When a letter from Licut. Curzon ,
dated Lugano , had been received , announcing -
nouncing the marriage , and enclosing
a second , faulty , little missive , written
in Italian , from the bride , he had read
the two communications without comment -
ment , and thrust the crushed envelope
into the pocket of his threadbare
Now a far more severe misfortune
had stricken the old mar , , and his
whole being threatened to collapse in
tli ( : shock.
The event which moved Jacob
Dealtry to despair had convulsed all
native Malta as with an earthquake
Italy , actuated by the aim of consolidating -
solidating a national currency , had
recalled the coin known as the Sicilian
dollar. The government of Malta announcing -
nouncing the decision , had given an
ultimate date for all money of this
denomination in circulation on the
Island , to be brought to a given place
The unexpected tidings were received -
ceived and discussed with a perturbation -
tion of which municipal authority
may have nre'-iously entertained no
suspiciolr. The Maltese , bigoted by
tradition and distrustful by temperament -
ment , had remained cold amidst the
fever of modern speculation , hoarding
his worldly goods rather than risking
all in bank , railway shares or loans.
To possess gold one should be able to .
handle and count the glittering coins
frequently. Suchi is his creed. Moreover -
over , to obey the present summons
would be to fully reveal one's treas-
nre , a course to be deplored.
Malta wept , prayed , raved in secret.
In vain ! The nobleman in his palace ,
penurious and abtemious of life , time
merchant , the man of law. the sailor ,
the fisherman , equally cursed the tern
poral dispensation which so ruthlessly
unveiled the actual condition of individual -
vidual finances to public curiosity.
here was a situation almost unique
in history. The island must divulge
her wealth as far as the Sicilian
dollar was concerned. .Now the Sicilian -
ian dollar was a coin of preference
with all grades of society agreeable
