E0IA5CE OF THE BAIL.
"I wonder where Tom can be!"
and suiting the action to the word,
she started in pursuit. She was on
ly gone a minute; then, -with a com
ically rueful face, she begged me to
come, to. We found the deserter
cosily tucked beside the very girl
he had admired the day before, for
both of them were occupying the
same car-step, while tde rest of the
gay group were camped on the plat
form. Of course I laughed, while
Madge evinced her presence by
reaching over and energetically
pulling a curl of the handsome head
that was so dangerously hear the
young lady's rosy cheeks.
Tom started, looked round, and
coolysaid: "Ah, Madge! I thought
it was you. "Well, 1 can't very well
move just nowj but, 3Iiss Ellis, if
you can look over your shoulder you
will see my sister. Miss Fairfax,
allow me to present Miss Ellis."
The scamp certainly-showed good
taste; for Miss Ellis was very love
ly, both in feature and expression.
She blushed a little, but bowed
gracefully as her position admitted ;
and her voice was singularly sweet
when she said, "I lind that Mr.
Fairfax is an old schoolmate of my
brother's. They were at Toronto
, It was Madge's turn to blush
now; not a little, but furiously,
while Tom'a mischievous eyes
danced with delight at her contus
ion and I did some Yankee "guess
ing" about what "brother," which
proved quite correct, and then I sat
down to watch further develop
ments and to enjoy the happiness
before me. O 3outh, and hope, and
beauty ! What brave possessions ye
are! Ye hold in your magical
glasses such rare libations, and ye
drink such eager draughts, believ
ing the visions they bring to heart
The train roared on. ".Boss
Tweed" came out and stood on tho
platform of his car, watching the
strange tjesolato lands wo were
passing; gentlemen boh'soled them
selves with cigars ; ladles tried all
conceivable changes of position and
read persistcntlj ; whllu all the hap
piness and delight in the whole
train seemed to concentrato In the
knot of young people about me.
Madge sent for the hamper, the
young ladies opened their baskets,
and whan wo reached Cheyenne I
left? Turn, seated oil a reversed water

dalntost morsels, and my queenly

They were all going through to
Sacramento. My prophetic fcoul
told mo what would happen, for the
Jrriprpaw.neijV )ii a JJulluian car for
a week of two mutually faqsoiiitilile
peoplo has an an almost certain re
sult. Nothing in Euclid is surer
than a flirtation, while something
njorp serjqip is very apt to take
place. Tonj gave lift: his qwn verr
bjon of the story, declaring fate had
boon too much for him, for during
those days travel he had grown sq
used to caring for Miss Ellis, so ac
customed to playing a devoted lover
"just to tease Madge," that when
their destination was attained the
force of habit made him still seek
thji young hdy? and "she seemed so
fond of him, that "rfaljy now, you
know, a fellow finds himself 'in a
queer position, am I had to marry
hef just tosavp hpr foelln!"
The pretty bride had heard alj
this beforo, so sho only rejoined with
tho meekest air :
"I'm trying to show how sensible
I am of his pure benevolence."
"Altogether an accident!" but
What ft delicious consequence! I
am telling yqu a true story, dear
friends, and if you'wlif find but th
history of many a marriage it wil
be found to havo an equally small
"And Madge?" I think I hear
you say. Well, Madgo was going
to Sacramento to complete her en
gagement to that same brother of
Miss Ellis who had known "Tom"
at Toronto, and Tom asserts that
she rules him splendidly. I'd give
something to see her eyes flash
again, but to-morrow I am to say

THE BAD BOY,
"M. QuaJ" in the .Detroit Free Press.1
Chapter J. Introductory. His
name was John Henderson Tomp
kins, and he was going on thirteen
years old. He had freckles all over
his nose, chewed plug tobacco, and
loafed around select schools and put
tin ears on boys smaller than him
self. His father was killed by a
Canada saw-log, his only sister slept
In the silent tomb, and his mother
divided her time between gossiping
and canvassing for money for the
heathens in Africa.
Chapter II. Thudy. Thus it
will be seen that there was no one
to give John Henderson Tompkins
any domestic attention beyond an
occasional whack with a slipper,
which made him the worse. He
wasn't sent to school, never had to
take a dose of castor oil, was allowed
to go around with a letter in the
postofllce and his pants supported
by a magnificent belt of sheep
twinPi and If ho wasn't home by ten
o'clock qt njght his mother felt per
fectly suro that he would dump
down somewhere and be homo In
time for codfish and potatoes in the
Chapter III. Shameful JVc
glect. John "Henderson Tompkiu's
mothor npyer took him on her
kueo, and asked him if he knew
what was beyonu tne ungut stars,
and if ho knew where'd he'd go to
if he grew up an awful liar and a
horse4hIef. She never told him
about tho Children of Egypt, Moses
in the bulrushes, or Daniel in the
lion's den, and it Is no wonder that
he grew up to be a bad boy. She
didn't never have sticking plasters
ready when ho got a cut, and Sun
day learnings there was no ono to
rub him behind his pars, fill his eyes
with soap and water, and comb his
hair the wrong way.
Chapter IV. Hi Fcculiari
He. Everything which happened
in th village was laid at -hn Hen
derson Tojnpkiu'a door. "It's some
of that boy's work, they said, when
ever a bushel of plums, a water
melon, or a peck of peaches myste
riously disappeared. He was proba
bly guilty of everything charged, as
when he died they found where he
lad hidden seventeen stolen cow
bells, forty Sxesi tver so many saw
bucks, fifteen or twenty front gates,
and I can't remember haw many
Chapter V. Dotcn on Him. In
time, as the reader was informed in
a jirevjous chapter, the adult male
population of tho village got down
on John Henderson Tompkins.
Old maids jabbed at him with um
brellas, merchants flung pound
weights at him, shoemakers dosed
him with strap oil, and grocers al
ways looked around for John Hen
derson when they wanted to heave
out bad eggs and spolletffrults.
Chapter VI. Hi Ambition.
You might think that they would
havw eventually succeeded In break
ing the boys' spirit and dashing his
hopfes, but they couldn't da it He
had an ambition which nothing
could' check. He wanted to be a
bold pirate and sail the raging main,
and he wa3 patiently waiting for
the time to come when he could
wear No. 10 boots and swear in a
voice like the echoes of a bass viol.
He would be content to crawl into
hen-roosts and to creep around
horse barns for a few years, but
then but-then .
Chapter Vn. Effort at Be
form. Some of the more philan
thropic citizens made strenuous ef
forts to reform the boy. They
locked him up in asmoke-house
for a week; they clubbed him until
he couldn't yell, and they held him
under a pump until he was as limp
as a rag, but as soon as they let him
go he went right back to his old
CnAPTEB VHT. Kearing 7iia
End. John Henderson Tompkins
bad kept this thing up for eight or
nine years when our story opens,
and he was nearing his end. Jus
tice overtakes the guilty sooner or
later, and justice was laying low for
tliis bad boy. He had the cheek to
believe that he would live to be a
hundred years old, but he was to bo
taken down a peg or two and Ills
mother left an orphan.
Chapter IX. JTie End. One
day, while in the heyday of his
wickedness, John Henderson Tomp
kins came upon something new in
the line of plunder. It was a pile
of little cans labelled "nitro-glyc-erine
hands ofT dangerous poison,
&c," but he couldn't read and he
didn't "care a copper. He carried a
can behind the meeting-house and
sat down on a rock to open it.
There wasn't any guardian angel
around to tell him that he'd get
busted if he fooled with that can
and so he spit on his hands and
gave it avhack on the stone.
Chapter X. Obituary. The
folks all ran out, and after a good
deal of trouble they found and sep
arated the pieces of meeting-house
from the pieces of boy, and they got
together enough of John Hender
son to fill a cigar box and answer as
a basis for a funeral. They burled
the lemajns in a quiot nook, and tho
grave-stone maker put a llttlo lamb
on the head-stone, to show that
John Henderson Tompkins was
meek and lovoly.
Fashion dictates' this season that
the bonnet should be of the same
shade as tho toilet worn wjth jt- As
black is much adopted with blue in
termixed, such as black slclllennc
and turquoise blue ostunies,a,
French milliner has designed an
exquisite capote, made either
in pale blue faille or Eng
lish crepe, with a quilled crepe
edge and garland of double 'forget-me-nots
mixed with a garland of
wood violets wand, the uflm. The
contrast of the pale delicato hluo
aud the rich dark violet l exceed
ingly happy." Another vers lady
like bonnet is made -of black chip;
t has a large black satin bow on the
left siqe: a brilliant WjhJg resting
against tflp bow? and tapering higher
than tho crown. Upon the edge of
the hack of tho bonnet there is a
cluster of Marguerites. The Eng
lish capotes havo both curtains and
strings. The prettiest have a very
long jet fringe in front and at the
side princeie roses, either flesh or
sulphur qojqr mingjpd with, tulle.
White straw mlxfedrwjth blaok vel
vet will be' much worn this year. A
laniballe bonnet, with wide velvet
edge, turned up at the back, only,
with a whito ftfather encircling the
crown, is mado expressly to be worn
with costumes composed of black
velvet and white woolen materials.
Steel arrows, Jet and steel-blue
buckle, are still to be seen on bon
nets, but a new and prettier orna
ment is a dagger made , of yrquoi

Then was aome improvement In
the business transacted at the
banks to-day. Money is easy at le
gal rates, and the banks are dis
criminating a shade less closely
wa perhaps a little lighter In a gen
eral way, than for the previous
days of tho week, owing no doubt to
the unpleasant weather. Prices are
unchanged, except on sugars, which
were sold at one-eighth of a cent off
from yesterday's quotations.

them a rich harvest in trade for the
