In anil out o ( so- doty , did llttlf else than contemplate It with practically unanimous emotions. This ab- fimblnK occupation effectually Inlet feted with noddy doings anil will account satisfactorily for the somewhat meager record which fol lows. There Is apt to l > u a certain apathy , anyway , ilurltni the last tew days o ( a inon- atch'H lelgn , and Ak-Sar-Ben the 'Htcenth has lens than u week now left to rule. It hhould bo homo In mind , lion over , that ho la not the only Ak-Sar-Hun In the den , that theto arc others , and that prepalatlous for Ills successor's coronation ball arc Hearing completion on a male of magnificence rat- culaud tu eclipse all balls of dlettuit or re cent past. Next week ulll not lack foi spice , nor the chronicle of Itj events for 7 cat. With a State fair open every day , both theaters In flctlm operation every night und thousands of v Islllng strangers experiencing the mani fold dcllglit and perils of a great cltv , the nightly parades nnd the aforesaid bill on Friday \\lll jnal.e It a pcilod still more to ho remembered. The new king's policy will doubtless have Its effect upon the current of society dm In I , ' the coming season , but there Is i ration to believe that the successor to the present sovereign will be as lenient toward the follies of mankind as he. There are those about here who have not hesitated to anathematize our late weather. The eafc , however , of Archibald Johns only L'OCH to prove that the past heated term ( from more of which tuny wo be granted de liverance ) , served not to blight every one was about to say "green thing , " but Archi bald will not nn.sucr to such a classification ( served not to blight every ambitious growth , but brought about a glorious triumph Archibald adores n beauteous maiden , Mtsa Mary , whose charms not Aichlbtld alone has found to bo manifold. Mlt > s Mary Is a general - oral favorite , and she graces the region nd- Jneont to Htuiacom purl ; , umlcr the guidance of her fond parents with a sweet and mod est piesence. Her father , a good man , though an nustcrc , believes that young daughters should not be too much In evi dence , u good principle within bounds This , being his llrm belief , has led to the annihila tion of all possible suHor.s save one. Archi bald has been considered Bate company be cause ho Is bo modest and mannerly Now this youth suspected a reciprocation of his love , and one evening before the "veathtr changed he determined to sound the depth of Jlnty's regard He vowed with a manlj vow that he had bided his time long enough , and that If there was a watch on duty that Bight It should bo disposed of. This might have suggested difficulties on the face of It , but Archibald , goaded on by love , knew none of them Arrived at the house , hot and perspiring , ho spied the fair Mary upon the piazza , -with her paiu , as usual , on guard. In pursuance of his fell design Archibald bespoke his thirst " \\\is the'e Ice water ? Very good. No ! No ono should fctlr He knew the way to the dlnlngroom It was easy to find " So wa : the door leading to the basement. It was but a slight task to sot the spring lock upon this door Then he returned to the pla7a to await the arrival of 10 o'clock , when Mary , papi and mamma and Mlgglns , the pug , must retire. Time passed slowly There was nothing to do. A suggestion that ho and Mary shoulA go for an Ice cream sqja gave Archibald voice , but bis kindness was mlscciistrued by papa. Paterfamilias meant well , but he had never been a young man , which Is the same as &a > lm ; he never tasted an Ice cream soda. The only flavored cold drink pap.i took wab beer , which he did every night before going to bed , a sacrifice to propitiate Morpheus. Papa did not enjoy beer , be cause It tasted like quinine , but It was easier then running around the block and pro duced the same soporific effect ; nnd papa weighed fourteen stone. When 10 o'clock airived papa arose "Mr John , " said he , "I am about to take a glattf ( of beer. " ( This was no news to Archlbild. The same thing had often happened to him In the same way ) . "I never exceed ono gla s , bccauce It gives me what Is called u. 'head. ' Perhaps you will Join me , ami then we must all retire. " Accord'iiglv. papa repaired to the base ment. Mamma was nowhere In sight. Archi bald's tlmo was come "Mary , " he ex claimed , grasping hei hands hurriedly ; "tlmo Is short 1 will do It better next time , on my knees probably , and I owe you a thousand apologies for presuming ( there was a tre mendous rattling at the basement door ) for presuming to use underhanded means to see you alone , although I did lock your father Into the basement ; but I love you , dearest. Yea , I do ! ( The hubbub below Increased , mlmglrd with cries for help. ) And I believed If jou had a show you would say you loved me. You do ? Then let's let father out and I'll drink jour health You do forgive mo ? Oh , thanks ! I knew you'd stand by me One kiss , then he'll ascend. There ! " 1'minrliiK for ( lit * Hall.
