THE MILLIONAIRE'S DAUGHTER.
Now and then a girl becomes an ac
tual belle. Ella Lowe was actually a
belle. She was very handsome, and
the only child of a millionaire. She
dressed perfectly, and bad every possi
ble accomplishment. When she entered
a room she somehow threw all the other
girls into shadow. A crowd p;athered
about her chair, ana recognized beauties
pouted in indignation at their neglect.
Whether she would have been so much
admired had she not been an heiress, it
would have been hard to say; but she
had had, on an average twenty offers of
marriage since she "came out," and
had not yet accepted any one as her
chosen husband, though she was three-and-twenty.
Perhaps the pleasure she
took in her bellehood was too great.
At last, however, almost on her
twenty-fourth birthday, she met Mr.
Evan Plant aganet, a .young exquisite of
the a-stUctic type, and urged on by his
mother and all his many sisters, engaged
herself to him with her father's consent.
When she did -this, one young heart
ached sorely that of her far away
.cousin, Roderick Blair, a physician new
fledged, who lived with his mother in a
pretty country town on the Hudson. He
paled and moped, and his mother knew
well what troubled him.
"Why did you never speak to Ella?"
she said. "How do you know she
could not have liked you?"
"She was too rich, mother." said
Roderick, gloomily. " I could not seem
to be a fortune-hunter. I would not
owe so much to a wife."
".Not if she loved youP" asked the
But the son would have no more talk
about the matter. The girl never could
have been his. He himself did not un
derstand why he should feel more un
happy than before. Perhaps it was be
cause, as his mother said, he did not
know but that she might have liked
And Mr. Evan Plantaganet exhibited
his prize in public, ami his mother and
sisters boasted of his engagement to
"the daughter of Mr. Lowe, the well
Suddenly there came a crash; a start
ling piece of news petrified the fashion
able world. It was uttered by every
tongue, and published in even paper.
The millionaire Lowe had embarked
in .speculation, and his millions were
The great house was clo.sed. Mr.
Lowe and his daughter went to live on
an upper foor, in a plain street, and
the mother of Evan Planta'jauet de
clared herself shocked at the old man's
deception. In fact, the young man
himself was horrified at the situation of
his prospective father-iu-law, and hav
ing drawled out sundry reproaches, was
offered his freedom, which he took at
Ella was free, and poor, Roderick
Blair, in his country home, heard the
news. A few hours afterward he was
at Mr. Lowe's door.
He found Ella as bright as ever; in
fact, she had long since grown weary of
Plantaganet and his atlec tations. She
wore a prettv dress and smiled and chat
ted gay:y. The humble rooms were
pleasant and well-arranj: ed. Never had
Roderick passed a pleasanter evening.
He returned home full of hope and hap
piness. But though he felt himself honored by
the privilege of visiting in that humble
abode, most of Ella's admirer., and all
her fashionable lady friends but three,
gradually dropped her. She was no
longer a belle. WIipu she accepted an
invitation she found herself treated like
other girls. The lesson was salutary.
If her vauitv was hurt. Iter good sense
One pleasant winter day she accepted
the hand of Roderick Blair. It might
be a long engagement, for both were
poor, but they trusted each other.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Blair was delighted.
She came down often and brought, all
the village news. Amongst other things,
a description of the splendid new house
a rich man, whose name she did not
know, was building on the very next
1)iece of land to that on which her own
jr wn cottage stood.
It was a marvel of perfection, thor
oughly well appointed in every way,
and it was now being furnished from
roof to basement in the most elegant
manner. The furnishing did not come
at lirst, of course. Indeed, it took six
months to arrive at that point. And
a stained glass window in the hall and
a conservatory, thoroughly stocked,
brought the old lady down on a special
Mr. Lowe was always interested in
her account of the place.
"I should like to see it," he said. "I
will come up with Ella next Monday,
and, no doubt, I may get permission to
go through it with vou."
"Delightful!" saul Mrs. Blair. "I
adore handsome houses."
Ella smiled; and the result was that
the following Monday Mr. Lowe, hearty
and happy as in his palmiest days, of
fered his arm to Mrs. Blair, and leav
ing the young people to follow, escorted
her from her own quiet' home to the
elegant new mansion. The man who
was carefully polishing the stone porch
opened the "door for him, and all four
Certainly a handsomer, and yet a
more home-like house, could not have
been found in all America. Mrs. Blair
was in raptures. Roderick, looking
down at Ellla. said;
"My dear, I wish I could give you
such a home;" and she answered:
" Ah, Ro lerick, I wish I could bring
buch a home with me when I come to
Mr. Lowe heard, and paused with a
'Say you so children?" he cried.
"Well, then, my dears, if you like it,
will give it to you. Take "it and eniov
It seemed a witticism, at which they
all laughed, and the' went home to
gether, happy and friendly, and took
tea in the widow's cottage.
After the meal was over, Mr. Lowe
once more brought up the subject of the
WpjJA yoa w ally like to live then,

"A country life and true, honest friendl

think they are sufficient. But, dear,
friends, I haye a confession to 'make.
The story of my total loss of fortune
was, an exaggeration. I lostf fifty thoti

foundation for the rumor. I fostered
'it, and-played the ruined man to per-
iection. Aly motive was to sav Jt.ua
from a fortune-hunter, and togiy her
to a good man who really loyed ho'r.
She has found him.

course, live with ' your" son, and you
must find room for me somewhere
within its walls, dear madam. I think
we will all be very hsppy together.
There, no talk about it now. You have
engaged yourself to a rich woman
against your will, Roderick, and will
have to put up with it."
And he took his daughter away,
wrapped in her fur-linea cloak, and
smiling back at her lover.
Again the millionaire Lowe was a
nine days' wonder in the city of New
York. Again the fashionablo world
offered its invitations, and Evan Plant
aganet's mother went to call on dear
Ella, and tell her how "Plantaganet
regretted the misunderstanding;" but
she found a wedding-party assembled
in the little parlor, and discovered that
Ella had beeu Mrs. Blair for nearly half
an hour. She had self-possession
enough to present her congratulations,
and retire speedily. She was not want
ed, and the late belle quite understood
what had brought her there. For her
part she was happier than she had been
in those dajs of adulation and flattery,
and would not have exchanged her true
and loving husband for all her train of
admirers, for all tho hollow world could
otter. And yet she was glad to bring
Roderick a "fortune as well as a heart,
and he knew her too well now not to be
o-lad. also, if only for her sake. N. Y.
And He Was Glad or It.
Almost every night of his life for ihe
last twenty-three years a Detroiter has
been aroused from hia. slumbers by a
poke in the ribs and a voice whispering:
"John! John! do you hear that?"
On such occasions the conversation
has always run in one channel, and
about as follows:
" Wha.zer want?"
Don't you hear that noise?'
" Listen! I tell you some one is rais
ing a window!"
" Oh! bosh!"
"For Heaven's sake, John, get up or
we'll be murdered in our beds! I hear
some one moving around in the dining
room!" " Let 'em move!"
"There it is again! If vou don't get
up I will, for I'm all in a chill!"
There was no peace until John gotup
and stumbled around the house with a
rusty old revolver in his grip. He never
expected it was anything more than the
wind or the -frost or the cat, but almost
every night brought a repetition.
The other night ushered in an entire
change of programme. Just before
midnight the wife elbowed his spine
"Mercy on me! but I feel a draught
of cold air!"
"Nonsense!" growled the sleepy hus
band. "And I hear some one walking
"It's the cat!"
' Get out of bed this minute, or I'll
yell murder and arouse the neighbor
hood'" John obeyed. He felt the cold air on
his legs as he tramped thro.igh the up
per hall, and when he wa3 half way
down stairs a dark figure skipped out ol
the open front door. When he reached
the threshold he saw a man running
across the street, and he called out:
" Hello! there hold on!"
The man halted.
"Come back here, you burglar! Come
back and I'll giro you the run of the
house! I've been waiting for and ex
pecting you for over twenty years, and
now I don't want to be shook in this
You go to South America!" shouted
"Well, ril leave the door open for
you, and you can enter and burglar
around for "a whole hour if you want to
and I won't lift a finger. I'm glad" you
got in powerful glad, and sorry I drove
vou out before you had loaded up!"
He left the door open and walked up
stairs and jumped into bed, but his wife
threw up a window and whistled for the
police and raised such a racket that the
neighbors were aroused. It was found
that the robber had opened the front
door with a false key. but had been
driven away before he had time to se
cure any plunder.
" I've just got tired of poking around
for burglars when there are no burg
lars." exclaimed the man as he waved
the crowd out of the hall, " and if this
chap had only stopped long enough to
fire at me a couple of times hanged if I
wouldn't have bought him a new over
coat!" Detroit Free Press.
An Anecdote of Sir Garnet Wolseley.
Sir Garnet Wolseley will be pleased
to learn from the French journals that
while he was in Paris the other day on
his way home from Eirypt he had a
touching interview with a Frenchman
who saved his life in Zululand. This
man, Pierre Lettrez by name, had en
listed as a volunteer in the English
army on the Cape, and Sir Garnet, nav
ing heard him very favorably spoken of
by" the officers of his regiment, made
him his orderly. At Udangtic he killed
a Zulu soldier who was just about to
throw his assegai at Sir Garnet, who,
failing to induce him to come to En
gland, lent him 1,000, with which he
set up a small shop in Paris and pros
pered exceedingly. When Sir Garnet
passed through Paris, Lettrez called at
his hotel and paid him back, with in
terest, the money lent Sir Garnet was
compelled to accept repayment, so
earnestly did Lottrez plead, and could
not even induce him to accept an invi
tation to dinner. N. Y. Sun.
There is a sermon for thinking peo
ple in the report that a Montreal clergy
man, in seeking to discover why his
church had not been swept and dusted,
learned that the woman whose work it
was had died of starvation.

long current belief that the concentrit

A piece of white linen was a good thing,
but a piece of linen and a chunk of gold,
and the first sleeve buttons were coined
of that precious metal, combining as
they did utility and beauty, comfort and
elegahce. at once found their way into
permanent popular notice.
The linen cuff of to day U as unlike

nercale cuff, likewise once hisrh in the .
estimation of the wealthy and the

porary oblivion, although wholesale
jobbers say they find ready sales 'or
both the percale and celluloid cuffs in
the extreme South and West. The cuff
which laps over and buttons at one end
is now considered barbarous. The ultra
fashionable kind is the cuff which is
bound top-ether by a link button. It
should be attached to the shirt sleeve
by two delicate slips, extensions from
that part of the cull which a sailor
wouldcall "amidships." One nasou
why the percale culls went out of fash-

It is permissible to wear a tight-fitting
cuff in the winter, although the present
style favors a roomy one that will come
down cleverly over the wrist and yet
not stick in the coat-sleeve, like a "fat

Pat Holland's Shooting Trick.

Tills was put down on the bills as "Pat

shoot apples from twelve young ladies'
heads in succession, and only take one

within or close to the galaxy of which
the solar system forms a part. The
streak of light in the heavens whi- h we
call the Milky Way appears as it does
only because the galactic region is a
circular disk, the diameter 01 which is
eight or ten times its thickness. The
sun with the earth is near the center of
this disk, so that when we look toward
the circumference of it we see the stars
crowded together, while, when we look
toward the flat side of it, they are com
paratively few and scattered. The
Milky Way is what we see when our
eyes turn toward the circumference. If
the earth were a transparent ball, a man
at its center would see the galaxy, with
the Milky Way as a belt running com
pletely around it. The star Groom
bridge 1830 is not only on its'way paat
all these visible stars, but it will go be
yond them, and pass among and
through the region of nebula by which
the disk is surrounded, for the nebula
in all probability are but collections of
glowing gas the substance of which,
according to a generally received theo
ry, suns and worlds are made.
No other star is known to astrono
mers which has a proper motion so great
as that which is bearing Groombrldge
1330 on its way through infinite space
and which Js not less than two hundred
miles per second, nor does science give
any ac count of what produced it. As
has already been said, an application of
Newton's tirst law of motion shows that
upon it the attraction of tha whole uni
verse of stars is absolutely "no force"
to it. The star a ts as if' it had ones
been set in motion to go on at a uni
form rate of elocity forever, either
nloue in space or from some other dis
tant "universe" of which nothing is
and nothiugcer can be known, t- wards
some other universe compared with
which our own is not even as a cloud of
dust. In s ch a matter of this an orig
inal i;f,e!iix is out of the question. La

are not driven as the moon constantly
lulls towards the earth, so the planeta

other word-, gravitation acts through
outthi' universe whereverthere mat
ter it Is subject to this law. and there
fore ii is evident- that th s great star,
whet ever it came from and wherever it
is going to, is doing its work in obedi
ence to the law of attraction. A recent
speculation may give an indication of
what the giant star h on its way to ac
complish, and tlfs work is "nothing
more nor less than tho redistribution of
the matter of some other universe than
ours, which redistribution may have a
serious effect upon the universe of which
we are purt and parcel. The effect
will be remote enough in time. and. yet
it is not I y any means iuipossb Io that it
may be felt long before the limit of years
has elapsed which Prof. Newcomb ha1
assigned to the star for its disappear
ance from telescopic vision. Action
and reaction are equal and in opposite
directions. If Grootnbridge 1830 be
moving towards some other great mass,
the other is moving towards it. possibly
with equal and possibly with greater
velocity, and if the whole mass of the
he.ien of stars in our galaxy cannot ar
rest the j.atk of the one it can hardly
have any effect upon the other. In.
other words, our little universe need not
be considered at all as a factor in tha
The speculation which has just been
spoken of is founded on the Nebula
Theory, which i; grounded solely in
physics. A result ot the theory is well
known to be that suns will clash with
suns, the heat resulting from the impact
being .-uuicient tj disper-e the matter
of which they consist through a space
nearly but not quite equal to that which
it occupied when the suns beganto
'orm. The process of condensation
wi:l then begin auewand gradually form
a body equal in mass to the sum of tha
suras which took part in the collision.
The volume, of course, will be larger
than any of the individual suns. Col
lision after collision and subsequent con
densat on after condensation will take
place until, at a remote distance, two
enormous bodies a'one will remain,
which will then begin to gravitate
towards each other with constantly
accelerating velocity until they meet
and sufficient heat res Its to make of
the whole universe a nebula such a3 tt
is 311 po cd to have been at first. And
so, for one long swing of the pendulum
of eternity, actum est de homine. The
star Groombridge 18 0. a runaway, a
stranger to this poor universe of ours,
is supposed to be in relation to some
other star, one of two such great masses
built 1 p of the wrecks of the systems
which once were a "universe" on its
way to meet another of like proportions.
And then the clash ! If the tremendous
cataclysm take place near our system
of stars it will certainly be involved
in the ruin, and if remote, then such a
nebula will blaze up in the heavens
that we shall not have any need. of sun.
