rendered. Absolutely good for

that it startled the girl from her

The voice suited her, it was like

man ; 'aud yet too high, since you

'I fear so. In remembering that

this morning. Do you still bid a
penny to inquire into a thing so
deep as a sigh?'
The color deepened a little on the
'His charming companion of the
morning.' This wa how he regard
ed her this man, whose brave deeds
had preceded him, until, before
meetine. had assigned him some
thing akin to hero-worship.
A little sharp stab of pain shot
through her heart, but she smiled

sigh from you,' she said. 'It is

Miss Fay sometimes gave me a
thought among the many new aspi
rants for the hour she has sometimes
bestowed on me. A soldier's life
has many charms, spite of his hard
ships, and there is some fascination,
spite of its pain, in the long, solitary
musings he holds sitting at the door
of his tent, where, instead of the
plain stretching before him, he views
the mental panorama of his past.
I'm afraid mine will confine itself
to one figure. Can yon guess whose,"
There was an instant's pause an
instant when something stirred with
in Roydon Howard's heart, prompt
ing the impulse to cry out : 'Who
but yours? Make imagination but
a reality! Come with me! Share
a soldier's life, and let our mutual
love smooth the rough places !'
But scarcely was it born than he
strangled it. lie had no reason to
suppose that this girl cared for him ;
but even so, at least it was but a

him to ride forth to meet a foe?
Either with hysterical weeping or a
swoon. Xo, no! Here under the
green trees, in a ball-room, at the
head of a luxnrious dinner table,
such women were charming enough
to turn a man's braiu ; but in mo
ments of peril, when death, no longer
clothed in the poet's rythm, stalked
before them, bare and ungainly, it
was little wonder that they fled
shrieking from his grim presence.
, Therefore the pause lasted an in
stant only; then Koydon answered
his own question with a laugh.
'I declare I am almost growing
sentimental. If in anybody's pres
ence but yours, Miss Fay, I should
apologize for so unwonted a mood.
But you are wholly responsible for
it, and it must be with you so old a
story to inspire it that I will not
waste the words. By the way, there

tall, superb figure showing to such
splendid advantage, watching horse
and rider as they cantered out of
sight, the latter turniug first to give
a farewell salute with his whip.
'So, in scarce a moment, will he
ride out of my life,' she murmured
to.hersolf with white lips. 'Ob,
Roydon, is it that you are too proud
to ask me to share the peril and pri
vations of a soldier's life, or that it
would give you no pleasure to have
me share it?'
'Will you go out on the lake with
me this afternoou, Miss Fay?' asked
Major Howard, a week later. 'It
looks a little squally, but we will
keep closo into shore, so as to run
home if the. clouds thicken.'
'Of course I will come,' assented
Fay, 'and as to the clouds, don't
watch them too closely. I rather
'What a perfect picture she makes !'
thought Roydou, as he promptly, at
the appointed time, assisted her into
the snil-bo.it he had named in her
honor, the yachting dress of blue
fitting closely to the exquisitely out
lined figure, and on the golden
braids nestled a coquettish sailor
hat. Fifteen minutes later a splen
did breeze had canied them far out
into the lake.
'The storm has concluded to post
pone itself in our special favor,' said
Roydon, glancing up at the blue sky,
'or perhaps they don't think soldiers
should be too severely tried a sail
ors. Which in it, Miss Fay?'
'Do you appeal to me as the spirit
of the storm cloud? If so, I shall
call on it to avenge me.'
He answered simply by a look,
but it caused her eyes to droop.
She stretched her little white hand
down to the water's edge, watching
the current resist as the boat sped
'So,' he mined, 'am I resisting the
voice of my heart ; so must I resist
to the end.'
They epoke but little. They were
alone and together around them
water, above them the sky, beneath
them a grave. And both were
young and in each heart the same
voice was speaking, yet their lips
were eealed. Thus an hour passed,
when suddenly Roydon tacked.
'What are you doing?' cried Fay
in a tone of disappointment. 'Surely
we're not going home?'
'I wish we were already there,'
answered her companion with a
blanched cheek, just as a little breath
of wind, fresher than any they had
felt, blew upon them. 'Don't be
frightened, Miss Fay,' continued
Roydon, aasuringly. 'It'd one of
these treacherous squalls. We're iu
for it, but I'll do the best I can.'
'Can't I help you?'
The man glanced up amazed. She
neither cried nor groaned. There
was no tremor in her tone. His
cheek was whiter than was hers.
'Pshaw ! she did not realize the
danger,' be said, mentally. 'Can you
hold this?' handing her a rope as he
The next moment the sqnall struck
them. The little yacht lay fully on
its side, then righted itself.
Fay's lips were a little pale now,
but no sound escaped them, only she
had held o tightly to the rope, spite
of his resistence, that it had already
cut into the tender flesh.
The storm was now fully upon
them. It was fierce as it was sudden.
They were drenched with water.
They could no longer see each other
for the spray.
'Fay,' cried Roydon, 'yon are
'With yon ?' she answered. 'No,'
and her tone was firmer than .his
The next moment the boat, strnck
by a sharper blast than first, went
over. Both found themselves cling
ing to its sides.
'Fay, tell me,' he said, 'that yon
forgive mc for this. Oh, child, must
we die when life holds so much
'The storm won't last long. We
may yet be saved,' she answered, in
her sweet young voice, 'but Roydon,
if I slip, don't try to save me. It
will only loc two lives, and mine is
not worth as much as yours.'
'My God! without you, what
would mine be?'
The word escaped him ere he
realized their meaning.
Tiun it thou fnr mw cnL-n ilnor'
Fay replied, 'and remember, always,
had I my choice, I wonld have
chosen to have died thus with you
than to have lived on without yon.
My love, good-bye.'
The next iustant the waters had
caught her torn and bleeding hands,
all cut by the rope, from their slight
hold ; but Major Howard had spok
en words with no idle meaning
when he bad asked her what his life
would be worth without her.

greed for its beautiful prey, he threw

which was beaiing down upon them.
May I see you, if but for five
minutes?' were the words scrawled
on the card Fay held a few hours
-hiter, in her bandaged bauds, as she
lay upon the couch, very pale and
exhausted, but with a heart full of
gratitude for her wonderful escape,
awaiting him who had penned the
How well she knew the quick, im

coming. Her cheek flushed as he
strode impetuously into the room.

A great light shone iu the beauti

'I owe you my life,' she whisper

Much of the old prejudice against
intellectual women remains, because
the average man continues to regard
them as inseparable from bookish
dowdies and pedantic egotists, from
tumbled hair, soiled cutis and per
conal inelegance. He has not learn
ed that intellect no longer expresses
itself if, in truth it ever did in
such form and fashion. He may
have an intellectual wife and be ig
norant of the fact, since she fails to
discuss (Jreek roots and conic sec
tions, and since she fnlly appreciates
the advantages of clothes. His ro
mantic devotion to her is prover
bial ; and he rejoices in the con
sciousness that he loves, often years
after marriage, more than he loved
heron their wedding day. He never
imagines that he is under the per
manent spell of her intellect, and
there are thousand of men of his
nebulous intelligence. The woman
who knows how to use her intellect
ha a guarantee for the final loyalty
of her lover or husband. He may
sweive or wander, but hhe can be
patient and undisturbed; the fortes
of her mind, working at a distance,
will in due time bring the truant,
contrite aud chagrined, to her ever
The intellectual woman, properly
balanced, is, iu all the relations in
life, the best aud longest loved, and
is-always most genial and attractive.
He who declares that he detests in
tellectual women simply means that
he detests the ostentation of intel
lect, the self-consciousness of undi
gested information. When he meets
a really intellectual woman, he is
likely to think her charming from
lack of intellect. He is too biased
to comprehend that it is her intellect
that gives her charm. If most men
who are sill in love with their
wives could make the last analysis
of their fascination, they would be
pretty certain to find its chief source
to be a harmonious intellect.
It must be ackuowlcdged that
Senator Van Wyck is reasonably
prompt in fulfilling his promises and
contracts made during the Senato
rial fight last winter. One of his
latest appointments is that of Hon.
Thomas Graham, the Democratic
State Senator from this county, as
Deputy United States Surveyor. It
will be remembered by the people
of this county that it was predicted
during the campaign last fall that in
the event of Mr. Graham's election,
he would vote on the first two or
three ballots for the Democratic can
didate for TJ. S. Senator, after which
he would cast bis vole for whoever
the bolting element of the Republi
can party in this county wanted him
to. How well that prediction has
been verified i3 well known.
Much has been said by the leaders
in this bolting movement about
" methods," "political machines,"
" rings," "slates," &c, and the prom
ise of office for services rendered,
and here we have an exemplification
of the very thing they harped on so
much a regular, plain bargain and
sale beforehand. It was known to
many at the time of Mr. Van Wyck's
election that Mr. Graham was to
have this appointment in considera
tion of his vote for Van Wyck, and
the Blade gave a hint of it over two
It is all right for Van Wyck to
make his promise good to Mr. Gra
ham. If this is not "machine poli
tics," pray tell us what it is, and
what will his Democratic friends
think of this kind of trading? But
such is politics in the far west.
If every man would pay his wife
a weekly sum for housekeeping,
clothing, etc., he would find that in
nine cases out of ten her manage
ment of the fnnd would increase not
only his comfort, but that of the
whole house. If she is equal to the
task of being a wife and a mother,
she is also equal to the task of sup
plying and paying for the daily ne
cessities of the home. If sho is head
manager she wilt take pride and
pleasure in making a hundred cents
go a great way much further than
a man could make a hundred
and fifty go. She will also make
calculations about the expenditure
of the weekly sum, will lay by a
certain amount toward buying such
and such supplies iu quantities; will
learn that there is no economy iu
buying soap by the bar. starch or
sugar by the pound. She will sys
tematize her affairs, keep books a
day book and a ledger and exhibit
her well kept accounts with pride
and delight. The very fact that the
expenditure of the money belongs
to her will sweeten her life, give
new zedt to her occupations, and
make her a happier and more con
tented wife. To most women, the
idea ot asking for money is abhor
rent. They put it otl from day to
day, the dread of it is so great. Thoy
will wear expensive clothes in the
kitchen rather than ask for the
money needful for the purchase of
a plain calico dress.
Shrug your shoulders if you
choose, you unbelieving husband,
and say: 'I never knew such a
woman.' I beg your pardon, but I
must contradict you. The woman
you call wife, I do believe, would
rather siifler with the toothache
than ak you for money. This ino
false statement ; most women do
shrink from asking the head of the
family needful for boots, clothing
and the rommnn nece'sities of life ;
it is neither agreeable nor pleasant
for thorn, and they should not be
fort-etl to do it; if they do their ap
pointed work, the money to carry it
on should be freely offered, month
ly or weekly, as may be desired.
Some husbands have seen how much
their mothers suffered for the want
of the money, even when their
fathers were rich, and they profit by
the fact and give to their wives a
generous supply, never forcing them
to become applicants for it, and by
so doing they greatly increase their
dora. stie huppine--. Place confi
dence in a woman's ability to act,
and she will fully repay if; donbt
her executive powers refuse her
responsibility and you may rue it.
The subject of money supplies in
the home opens a wide field of
thought to the husband. Will he
cultivate it? Many wives of the
middle class have been accustomed
to earn their own ward-robes before
they were married. Bnt after mar
riage all is changed ; they must ak
for what they require rather than
