With scorn on my lips and a quiver of careless

Tet somehow it touches one oddly to break
tbe monotonous chain
Of stupid and meaningless phrases, and catch

Lily Curry, in Inter-Ocean.
OJilla Watson sat in the garden of
the late' Jonathan Watson's luxurious
home, on one of the hill-tops which
overlook tbe bottoms in which the city
of Cincinnati smokes and sputters and
groans like a heated caldron. She sat
on a pretty rustic bench, screened on
all sides by shrubbery and shaded with
the thick foliage of a wide-spreading
elm. Her pretty eyes were swollen and
red. The roses that late had bloomed
in her cheeks were "faded and gone."
The tempting lips were set with the un
speakable melancholy of the first griev
ous sorrow that had darkened the bright
life of the young and wealthy beauty.
She was but 18 years of age. The bright
expectancy of life had just burst upon
" her liko the life-laden sunshine of early
pring when death had suddenly stalk
ed into her presence and taken from
her 6ide the generous being who for
years had tilled in her heart the place
of father, mother, sister, brother, and
all, for ho was all she had. She had
kissed him after dinner, and he had
gone cheerfully to his study, there with
in an hour, to meet his end", unexpected
ly, unshrived of his sins, and intestate.
The blow had fallen upon Odilla with
such violent suddenness that it was long
ere she could conceive it in all its hor
ror. But wean sne saw tue r'cu co"11
which contained her all disappear in the
vault and the door close upon it she fell
in a swoon, and for many days her life
was endangered. But youth triumph
ed over sorrow. She recovered, and the
tears which she shed unburdened her
heart. She was well enough to leave
her room within a week, but this day
upon which she left the house and
walked into the shrubbery was the first
upon which her thoughts had wandered
for a moment from the dead.
As she sat upon the familiar bench
her meditations all ended in the query:
"Why does he not come?" Love had
already made its appearance in her
young life. In truth, wherever there is
youth there is lov also. Often he comes
as the paint fd butterfly, sometimes as
the sentimentally tuneful nightingale,
aud again it is said he appears in the
shape of the never-dying sphinx. But
however that may be he always comes
in the sjiringliiiit ot life. So she sat
wondering why he did not come, when
a familiar fooi'sb-p was heard. She did
not turn her head, but her heart accel
erated its motion, she made room on
the narrow bench for another, and lift
ed her hand in silent greeting. In an
instant a young man had that delicate
white hand in his; he pressed it to his
lips. "My poor little Odilla," he said;
"they would not have let me see you
even to-day if I had not guessed that
you would be here and come without
asking. Won't you look at me darling?"
as he sat by her side.
She turned her fair head, rich with
blushes of gratified vanity, incased in
soft waves of ebony hair, her smooth
brow shaded with mischievous ringlets
strayed from the fold. A bright smile
dwelt only a moment in her eyes, and
faded, blending into sad looks, and
quickly giving place to quivering lips,
and melancholy drops weighing dowu
her richly-fringed eyelids. Then the
bosom heaved with a convulsive sob
and her head lay on the young man's
shoulder, while his arm stole around
her waist and he stroked the fair head
of his love. Suddenly both weeping
maiden and consoling lover were startl
ed with the consciousness of a strange
presence. When thev looked up a man
was standing bv. The youthful lover
was evidently disconcerted, but not so
his fair sweetheart She indignantly
arose, and, with the. proudest look sur
veyed the intruder. He was an ill-looking
man. Dark and stoutly built,
dressed with neat simplicity, his square
chin covered with black beard, closely
cropped, and his lips, firmly set, gave
him an appearance of strength and reso
lution which men of more herculean
mold could not have borne. He stood
looking at the pair with contracted
brow and a dangerous gleam in his
eyes; but when Odilla rose he doffed
his hat and politely bowing: "Miss Odil
la, 1 am sony indeed to have intruded
upon so interesting a scene."
"I had hoped that our last interview
would end our acquaintance," she
"No," he answered coolly; "it did
indeed dispose of me as a suitor for
your hand, but it did not altogether an
nihilate me, as you sea 1 am still a man
capable of love or hate, and a lawyer
with business to transact; and as a law
yer I happen to know you much better
than you imagine."
The young woman had retained her
defiant attitude, and her lips curled
with something akin to contempt as she
retorted: "I have nothing to do with
legal matters. My father never intrust
eu me with anything, and any claim
yon may haye resurrected must be sub
mitted to the regularly appointed per
sons." "Perhaps if you were sure who your

"However much stronger you may be

aaswered, "you must not think, Mr. Tal
bot that I stand in awe of you."
"I don't doubtyoBT courage in the

Jonatban,Watson has a son of whom he
never sjioke and of whom no one has

discoverer of very strange and improb

statements, strong and fearless as you
pretend to be, you will find yourself be
yond your depths, sir."
"Bah! Do you take roe for a child,
to cry in triumph over an uncertainty?
I know whereof 1 speak. Jonathan
Watson was married in the East when
he was young and penniless: he had a
child, and left it and its young mother
to fare the best way they could. He
went West and made a 'fortune. He
firocured a divorce and married again.
Ie did have a child by his second mar
riage, but she died, and this girl, the
daughter of oue of his servants, was sub
stituted for the dead one without the
The youug lover stood pale and
dazed, wavering, uncertain what to do
or say. Talbot's manner carried con
viction with his words, and Castleton
did not for a moment doubt that his
story was true. Neither he nor his
companion had noticed the approach of
a young man, now within easy hear
ing distance. He was dressed in gray
traveling costume. He was tall, broad
shouldered, and erect, and his large blue
eyes lighted up a countenauce of un
usual beauty and intelligence. He had
bared his head to the evening breeze,
and his long chestnut hair shaded the
neck of an Antinous. It was impossible
to look upon his face and doubt for a
moment the noble integrity of his soul.
He considered the pair before him with
evident amazement and indignation,
and listened as one who had a right to
"Oh, yon are pale," the lawyer con
tinued. "I dare say you love the pretty
daughter of Jonathan Watson's servant.
So did I once. Now I hate her. 1 of

bent upon revenge, and revenge is
mine. She will go hence in poverty and
disgrace. Her fair hands will have to
earn a miserable existence. Her proud
heart will have to bow itself down to
labor at the command of others or sink
to worse unless the gallant son of
Judge Castleton will take her up from
the gutter where she belongs and make
her his wife," he added bowing, "if
you love her as I did you will do it."
"Aud your revenge" will be lost"
"No, not lost; deprived of some of its
sweets, no doubt, but not lost. I will
still have the satisfaction of proving that
she is the child of a servant I will take

the young lover.
"How? Oh, it was just immense

the second marriage and found the
mother of Miss Odilla, aud she told all.

most rigorous court can demand."

"Bah! Why. man, 1 can break your
bones with no more effort than it

ed the lawyer. But the eyes of both
met in deadly hatred, and they looked
into each other's eyeballs like wild
beasts preparing for a tray.
The silent witness now calmly ap-
Jiroached and laid his haud upon the
awyer's shoulder. "You are mistaken,
Mr." Talbot," he said, "you have no
proof whatever of what you assert con
cerning this young lady, and you had
better keep a still tongue on that sub

you call tbe decree of divorce between
Jonathan and Amelia Watson, the cer

declaration'of Mrs. Grubbs, her mother,

answered the youug man. "All this

your revenge. As for me, I am young,
healthy, aud intelligent enough to

lover, "Mr. Castleton, will you accom

thing of a mystery how so many young
men, on salaries of $12 a week, or from
that to $18 at the outside, manage at all
times to keep dressed in the bight of
fashion and find leisure to air them
selves and their clothes in conspicuous

world of these butterfly young men in
New York. It takes in over half the
young men in the city. They are. bill
clerks, or messengers, or underbook

Eighth avenue, near Forty-eighth street,
the other day. She is a matronly per
son, and has a dozen or more youno
men for roomers in her flats. She led
the way to the fourth story. At tbe head
of the 'stairs she opened the door to a
hall room. The room was small bnt
clean. Its furniture consisted of a bed,
a plain washstand, and two chairs. A
row of hooks on the wall opposite the
bed did service instead of a clothes
press, and the washstaud drawer sup
plied the absence of a bureau. In the
corner of the room behind the door was
a plain pine box. like an ordinary soap
box. On it stood a small oil-stove.
"The young man who rents this now,"
said the old landlady, "is a clerk in one
of the most fashiouable retail dry-goods
houses ou Sixth avenue. In personal
appearance you couldn't tell him from
a millionaire, but he gets only $11.50 a

clothes and he always wears the

lady, "is a little housekeeping outfit
With it and the oil-stove the young dry
goods clerk practically boards himself
that is. he gets his own breakfast and
supper every day, and no one is wiser.
Those packages in the box contain what
he eat. In the morning he makes a
cup of coffee for himself, which is an
easy matter with the oil-stove. He also
cooks a little rice, an egg, a piece of
bacon, or sometimes a small piece of
steak. Either makes a palatable and
sustaining meal. 4 That is before be goes

turns from the store he cooks his supper
in the same way. He does his little
marketing himself, too, and he has be

buy a piece of bacon, enough for three
meals, for six.cents; rice for six meals,

which will last not less than ten days,
for 11 cents; eggs at 2 cents each; a
half-pound of cheese, which will last a
week, 12 cents; coffee enough for ten
days, half a pound, for 12$ cents; sugar
for a week, 10 cents; potatoes, nine or
ten big ones, that will suffice for not
less than four meals, for a nickel. If
you will figure the cost of one meal out

room-rent are $5.35 a week, or, allow
ing the odd 15 cents for oil to burn in

A Few Words to Wives.
Encourage strict confidence with your
husband; withhold nothing from him,
and be patient in bearing all he would
confide to you, that he may always fly
to you as his counselor and best friend.
Be punctual to a second in all en
gagements with your husband and he
win be the same with you, and in thus
doing you will avoid much that is un
pleasant Practice economy in taking care of
what you have, keeping a strict account
of what you spend, buying nothing but
what you pay for immediately, and
making your account of each month's
expenses show you have more than you
have spent This is a great way to win
a man s respect, to make him think he
has a little savings bank upon which he
can rely in time of sickness and tinan
Rule only by love. Strive to call out
the best feelings of your husband's na
ture with continual loving attentions,
which, though they may oe small in
themselves, make such a strong chain
around his heart in time that he cannot
turn carelessly aside from you.
Go out always with your husband, but
manage to make home so attractive that
he finds no place so dear.
Dress better for your husband than
for any one else. Take a pride in his
appearance that he may judge your
heart by his owu. Never allow him to
see you slatternly attired. Even be
tasty in a kitchen dress or looking pretty
over a kitchen board.
Be strong in your determination never
to gossip, to harshly criticise. Nothing
men so much despise as gossip; nothing
makes a woman rise so much in a good
man's estimation as to see her charita
ble, particularly with her own sex.
"For large charity does never soil, but
only whitens soft white hands."
Put down your book when your hus
band enters the room and interest your
self in whatever pleases him, seeking
also to bring him over to your tastes.
Try for mutual concession, else you may
travel different roads.
Never bother your husband about the
servants. Cast aside disagreeable topics
when he returns from business. Give
your orders to your servants kindly but
firmly, exacting obedience, yet showing
them the encouragement of considera
tion when it is in your power.
If more mothers gave one-tenth good
advice to nine-tenths wedding outfit
there'd be fewer thoughtless marriages.
And better yet, if every mother made it
a point to follow these rules as closely

"Have yon made vour will?"
"It's a splendid place down in there
to die of asphyxia."
These were some of the nerve-tickling
comments 'hurled yesterday after a re
porter who chanced to be at Fort Hamil
ton, in the Narrows, and was about to
undertake a weird trip to the bottom of
the bay on board of Lieutenant Za
linski's iron-tipped submarine torpedo
boat, the Nautilus. The people on the
dock could afford to be facetious; they
were not going down into the depths,
and bis answering laugh therefore
sounded perhaps a little forced and
raspy, but it was well intended. The
Nautilus has been "tied up" for a long
time at the government pier at Fort
Hamilton. Experiments have been car

Joseph Holland, an engineer working

John Holland, of this city, who has per

this first dive. The lieutenant said: (
"Yon can go if yon think you want to
chance it" j
The "crew" of the boat was promptly
on hand. It consisted of one man a
youthful, nervy fellow, selected for his
utter disregard for the dangers of the
deep, and who has gained the appela
tion of "The Dynamiter.1' He descend
ed into the boat, which lay in the water,
rolling easily on the long swells sent
out by the oft-passing steamers.
The little craft looked like a huge ci-
far a high-priced one and pointed at
oth ends. The reporter next followed
the crew into the turret bole aud was
soon joined by Lieutenant Zalinski and
the Holland brothers. In a few min
utes the engine was started. The throb
and pump of its working and the short
(mfts from the air valves were painfully
oud in the "cabin." This air compres
sor has lately been perfected, and.
though the boat is not constructed with
any other idea than to demonstrate the
theory so long ago advanced that sub
marine sailing is practicable, a speed of
nine miles has been obtained. It work
ed perfectly. The air is compressed by
means of it until the tubes on the port
side, have a pressure of eighty-five
pounds per inch, and the opposite some
"Close the turret," said the lieutenant
A last look outside revealed a few sol
diers aud civilians on tbe wharf and a
man lolling on his oars in a rowboat
watching tbe monster. In obedience
to the order the cap to the turret was
swung around by an inside lever, and
stout clasps inside soon fastened it firm
ly down so as to exclude the water.
Only the light whioh drifted in through
a bull's eye and a row of small dead
lights illuminated the cabin, and can
dles were indispensable.
"Open your valve!"
The crew turned a stop- ccck. Water
from tbe bay rushed into the water
chambers, enveloping the cabin, and
into the diving-bell, and the boat began
to descend, with a slight tilting forward,
where the 800 pounds in the diving-bell
helped to bear it down. On tbe inside
could be heard the splashing and lap
ping of the water as the waves washed
up within the walls to the turret. Then
the waves covered the shell entirely,
and the stern settled more evenly with
the bow. The turret was soon half un
der. Down went the boat faster and
faster, and in a moment more a wave
washed completely over tbe top. That
was a queer sensation. It caused the
breath to come quick and short for a
minute, and everybody tried to be jolly.
"I've got a bfiekefof water here,"
volunteered the lieutenant, "but we
haven't any provisions."
A nice prospect. It is very easy to
sink a boat but to raise her is" the ques
tion. And something to eat would be
bandy, in case the diver could not rise,
to last until search parties could haul it
to the surface, for her machinery might
not work right And while these
thoughts "bobbed up serenely" in one's
mind, the motion of the waves was no
longer felt for the boat was entirely
submerged. The engine was not work
ing, and the boat was at rest on the bot
tom of the bay. Thus was realized,
though only in degree, Jules Verne's
imaginative "Twenty Thousand Leagues
Under the Sea."
It needed only a sliding panel in the
side to be opened and disclose the won
ders of the submarine depths. Fish
were perhaps nosing about the smooth
sides of the conical craft in wonder or
scurrying away from it in terror.
The panel scheme would be a good
one, but in lieu of it the "dead lights
were handy." No fish, however, were
to be seen through them, but dead
leaves and sea-weed floated about be
neath the surface, moved by the outgo
ing tide. Looking up through the bull's
eye in tbe crown or roof, the water was
lighter. The sun's rays drifted down
through it making it translucent, and
objects, like shadows, passing on the
surface, cast below them a deeper shade
still, which looked queer in the weird,
greenish waters. The water was twelve
feet deep thereabouts. The -Nautilus,
submerged, ordinarily draws six feet
An easy calculation showed the depth
of the boat A yacht might sail over it.
And now an odd feeling became notice
able. The compressed air liberated in
to the "cabin" rendered ihu atmosphere
denser than under normal conditions,
and there was a ringing in tbe ears of
those on board. Perspiration was forced
from the men, although the air was not
warm, and the reporter's collar began
to wilt sadly.
"Let us' go up."
Mr. Holland finally suggested this
very calmly. Would she "go up?"
Everybody awaited the result of the
order eagerly. The fate of the boat
may be of its passengers, depended upon
it At a signal the crew opened a valve.
A sound of rushing air from the tubes
indicated that tbe diving-bell was' be
ing rid of its weight of water. How
quickly it was all done. Only fourteen
seconds and relieved of only 800 pounds
of water, the boat rose until the top of
tbe turret shot into the light and air
above the surface. By manipulating
two valves the water was driven from
the water chambers to the diving bell
and thence forced outside until eighteen
inches ot the roof of tbe shell was out of
water and the turret could be undamp
ed. Tbe denso air in tbe boat rushed
out of the opening, and the pressure of
tbe atmosphere was reduced. The same
strange ringing in the ears made the oc
cupants of the ooat alive to that fact
The adventurous quintet were soon wel

"That beats a Turkish bath all hol
low," said one of them looking down at

AMERICAN FINANCES IN 1780
Until 1785 no national coinage was
established, and none was issued until
1793. English, French, Spanish,' and
German coins, of various and uncertain
value, passed from hand to hand. Be
side the ninepences and fourpence-ha'-pennies,
there were bits and half-bits,
pistareens. picayunes, and tips. Of gold
pieces there were the Johannes, or joe,'
the doubloon, the raoidore. and pistole,
with English aud French guineas, carol
ins, ducats, and cbeqnins. Of coppers
there were English pence and half
pence and French sous; and pennies
were issued at local mints in Vermont.
Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jer
sey, and Pennsylvania. The English
shilling had everywhere degenerated in
value, but differently in (liferent lo
calities; and among silver pieces -taa
Spanish dollar, from Louisiana and
Cuba, bad begun' to supersede it as a
measure of value. IaNw England tha
shilling bad sunk from nearly one-fourtk
to one-sixth of a dollar; m Mew zone
to one-eighth; in North Carolina to one
tenth. Irwas partlyfor this reason that
in desirins? a national coinam the mora
uniform dollar was adopted m taa nnit.
At tne same time the decimal system m
division was adopted instead of the
cumbrous English system. andTtk re
sult was our present admirably simple
currency, which we owe to Qoavsraeor
Morris, "aided as to1-soma nolnm by
Thomas Jefferson.- Daring tb' period
of the nrnfritritifrn, tht tiiirrlt state
trade, anil it afforded endless opportu
nities for fraud and extortion. Clipping
and counterfeiting were carried to such
lengths that every moderately; cautions
person, in taking payment in hard cash,
felt it necessary to keep a small pair of
scales besido him and carefully weigh
each coin, after narrowly scrutinizing
its stamp and deciphering its legend.
In view of all these complicated im
pediments lobusinca on the morrow of
a long and costly war, it was not strange
that the wbohTcounlry was in. some
measure pauperized. It is questionable
j if the war debt could have been paid
even under a more ethcient system ot
government The cost ot the war. esti
mated in cash, had been about $170.
000,000'; andprobablv not more than
$30,000,000 of this 'evcVgot paid in any
shape: The repudiation was wholesale
because there was really no money to
be bad. Tbe ueonle were somewhat in
the condition of Mr. Harold Skimpole.
in many parts ot the country, by tbe
year 1786. the payment ot taxes had
come to be regarded as an amiable ec
centricity. At one moment early in
1782, there was not a single dollar in
the treasury. Tb at the government bad
in any wav been able to finish the war.
after the downfall of its paper money,
was due to the gigantic efforts of one
great man, Robert Morris, of Penn
sylvania. This statesman was born in
Eugland. but he had .come to Philadel
phia in his boyhood, aad had amassed
an enornfous fortune, which he devoted
without stint to the service of his adopt-,
ed country. Though opposed to the'
Declaration of Independence as rash and
Eremature, he, had. nevertheless, signed
is name tothr.t document and scarcely
any one had contributed more to the
success of the war. It was he who sup
plied the money which enabled Wash
ington to complete the great campaign
of Trenton and Princeton. In 1781 he
was made superintendent of finance,
and by dint of every imaginable device
of hard-pressed ingenuity he contrived
to support the briuant work which be
gan at the Cowpens and ended at York
town. He established the Bank of North
America as an instrument by which
government loans might be negotiated.
Sometimes his methods were such as
doctors call heroic, as when he made
sudden drafts upon our ministers in
Europe after the manner already de
scribed. In everv dire emergency he
was Washington's chief reliance, and
in his devotion to the common weal he
drew upon his private resources until
he became poor; and in later years
for shame be it safd an ungrateful
nation allowed one of its noblest and
most disinterested champions to lan
guish in a debtor's prison. It was of
ill omen for the fortunes of the weak
and disorderly confederation that in
1784. after three years of herculean
struggle with impossibilities, this stout
heart and ssgacious bead could no
longer weather the storm. The task of
creating wealth out of nothing had be
come too arduous and too thankless to
be endured. Robert Morris resigned
his place, and it was taken by a con
gressional committee of finance, under
whose management the disorders only
hurried to a crisis.
By 1786, under the universal depres
and and want of confidence, all trade
had well-nigh stopped, and political
quackery, with its cheap and dirty rem
edies, bad full control of tbe field. In
the very face of miseries, so plainly
traceable to the deadly paper currency,
it may seem strange that people should
now nave begun to clamor for a renewal
of the experiment which had worked so
much evil. Yet so it was. As starving
man are said to dream of dainty ban
quets, so now a craze for fictitious wealth
in the shape of paper money ran like an
epidemic through the country. There
was a Barmecide feast of economic va
garies; only now it was the several
States that sought to apply the remedy,
each in its own way. And when we
have threaded the maze of this rash leg
islation, we shall tbe better understand
that clause in our federal constitution
which forbids the making of laws im
pairing tbe obligation of contracts. The
events of 1786 impressed upon men's
minds more forcibly than ever the
wretched and disorderly condition of
the country, and went fat toward call
ing into existence the needful popular
sentiment in favor of an overruling cen
