THURSDAY. JUNE 2.. 1887. A FALLEN IDOL "I I Link In in the very I'mlnnliuioiit of chivalry ami gallantry," Maid Ethel Hunt, eiitliiitduMtically. She WIIM a dark-cheeked, diamond-eyed gill of eighteen, with braid* of hlue-hho-k hair eoihsl around the haek of LO-r HIIIIIII, (■reek sha|M*l lieiul and a eolor a* rleli and velvety as the Hide of a July peaeh. "Humph !" said Aunt Sara. "I've heard girls talk no before and It generally ended in one thing. "For shame ! Aunt Mara," nried Ktliel coloring up to her eyelashes. "I only tuean, of Course, that he Is a very agree able eom|NXiiion." "An ngm-able companion — of course," said Aunt Sara. "Lsk Ethel ; do you think white Maltese lace of French blonde, w ith a heading of iComan |M-arls, would Is prettiest for this lierthe ?" Aunt Sara knew when to drop a suhjis-t and wheu to hold on to it ! ltut when Kth wan snienmg run uf jfp'iicli bloiule on to the white silk dress her young aunt's mind wan husy U]MIII the to|dc she had apparently abandoned. "The disagreeable fellow," thought Aunt Sara. "He has some how heard that Ktliel has money, and lie is determined to win it. if site could only sec him in his true light— hut I know w hat a perverse thing a wo man's heart is. dust as sure as 1 attempt to tell her what lie really is she'll make up her mind that he is the finest and leant appre ciated peraonuge on the face of the earth. And I did so want her to k<*ep her heart whole until Karl Wei In cornea to IN- ('bale's groomsman. Earl Wells is worthy of a princess. "They nay lie is jierfoctly intolerable at home," Mara said to herself. "Clara Wat ers was there once and heard him rating his sisters fearfully lnn-aiise the lx-efstcak for his late breakfast wan a little overdone. If only I could manage it that Ktliel should see liiui iu his true light." She nat and thought a while longer — and suddenly the color bloomed into her cheeks, and dimples into her chin, she started up. "Ktliel," she said, "I'm sure you must U tired of sitting over that everlasting stitch ing. I've got to go over to Susy Morand's to borrow a pattern. It will I*' just n pleas ant walk for us." "To Miss Morand's ?" Ktliel was vexed with herself, hut she could not help the tell tale bhssl that surged Into her cheeks. "Isn't it rather early ? Only y o'clock !" ♦♦Early ? Not a hit ! Susy and I are mi intimate that we don't mind curl pa|icrs and calico wripjiers. Get your hat and come along, quick !" Hut, in spite of her exhortations to SJM**l, Sara Martell smiled to herself to jM-reeive that Ktliel Hunt lingered long enough in her own room to change her black lace breast-knot for a liecoming little butterfly bow of rone-colnrcl riidsui, and to rearrange the dainty teiidrills of silky black hair that droojx-d so caressingly over her low, broad forehead. "Alto lUuk, 'VO .ihnll *>*< .1 uliutl Monilld," she thought to herself. "Well, jM ihap* we shall. lam putting myself entirely in the hands of lack and chance." But when they reached the Morand man- j sion. instead of ringing formally at the front d<M<r. Miss Martell went around to the iuick I torch, a Utile entrance all shaded with hon eysuckles and trumpet vines. "1 always p in here," said she nonchal antly, in reply to Ethel's rei ionstrating glance. "Site Morand and 1 are just like si stem. " Sue Morand, a blooming gir! of eighteen, was in the kitchen making apple pies. "The pattern ? Of course you shall have It," she cried, "dust wait a minute till 1 get it" "I'll go w ith you," said Sara. "Ktliel, you'll not mind wait for us here ?" "Not in the least," sai.l Ktliel. And she sat dow n by the window, where ivies, train ed In lMittb-s of water, were creeping like greeti jewels across the crystal panes of glass. "Sue ? Sue !" She staril a# the voice of her preux chevalier of the evening before came roaring down the back stairs. "Con found you all down there, why aren't my lssits blacked ? Sue ! Mother ! Nell ! What's IKVOJIIO of my breakfast ! Y'ou must think a man lias nothing to do hut to lie here and wait all day for you laxy folks to stir around." Then* was no reply as he paused, appar ently expending one. "Mother" was down in the garden under a big green suii-lsmnct, gathering scarlet-cheeked tomatoes for din ner. "Nell" was in the front yard picking red- veined autumn leaves out of the gold and russet drift* that lay like treasures of precious stones upon the grass. Sue was shut up among the mysteries of "patterns" innumerable, with Miss Sara Martell. Ethel Hunt sat coloring and half frightened, the sole auditress of Mr. Mor atid's objurgations. "I know there's aome one down there !" he shouted. "I can hear you breathe and your dress rustle. Just like your ugliness not to answer n fellow ! I>o you hear, Sue? lllaek my boots, quick ! I'm waiting for them !" And bang ! bang ! came the useful ar ticles of wear in question down the winding stairway that h*l to the kitchen. Poor little Ethel ! She half rose up, then sat down again, pi toon sly undeeidid what to do, and even while she hesitated, with color varying like the ml and white of the American flag iu a high wind, the door at the foot of the stairs flew op-ii and in stalked Mr. , Julian Morand, sallow and dis heveled, with unkempt lialr and beard, fret tnlly curved mouth and most nnliccoming costume of a Turkish dressing gown, faded poarl-colored nether garments and stocking ed feet thrust into ml morocco slippers. "I say, you," he snarled out, "why don't you " And then percivlng to whom he was act ually addressing himself, he started haek, turning flery ml. "Miss Hunt?" And, with a downward glance at his toi let, he fairly turned and fled, the skirts of his Turkish dressing gown floating like rod and orange meteors berhiml him. And, mortitled and terrified though she was Ethel Hunt could not resist the temptation to break into a ]>eal of hearty laughter. This, then, was her ideal among man, her "Sir Launcelot" of fancied perfection snar ling at his mother and sister like an ill-con ditioned bear, flinging old boots down the stairs at them, tumbling out of bed at 9 o'- clock in tlie morning, while his mother solit kindlings and picked tomatoes out in the vegetable garden ! Like some Chinese idol BO fell Mr. J ulian Moraud off bis high pe- destal iu the est I ination of Miss Ktliel Hunt Mlic told it ulI to Mara Martell when they were safe at home. "Aunt Mara," she said, "I am thoroughly disenchanted." Mis* Martell shrugged her Hhouhh ri and mentally thanked her lucky stars. "1 could have told you as much lefurc," said she. "These Adonises are like cheap calico— they will neither waab uor wear ! Walt until Karle H. Wells comes. The nicest young fellow iu the world — after my betrothed husband." When Mr. Wells came he so far justified Aunt Sara's encomiums that Ethel really did like him. And Aunt Mara was willing to leave the rest to fate. MATT IK MORGANS' LIFE. An English Olrl Who Has Served as Locomotive Fireman and Engineer. For some time there has Is-cn a g<ssi deal of quiet talk among the railroad men in this vicinity of the singular discovery made by the officers of the Natigamrx i;aitwu>' Com pany that a woman disguised in male attire hail leeii running an engine ou their rood for many mouths, says a l!rldgeport(Coiin.) corrcs)Mi!ideiit to the N. 1". Star. The he roine is an English girl named Mattie Mor gans, who came to this country ulsmt two years ago after serving her apprenticeship as stoker on the Great Northern railway,ls— tween London and Edinburgh. She con cealtd her sex so cleverly that she readily secured a |ssdtioli as fireman on the Nuuga tuek railroad and was eventually promoted to the jsist of engineer,first ou a freight ami afterward on a passenger locomotive, a i*t which she might have held to this day but for lier voluntarily retirement alsmt six mouths ago. Five years ago Mattie Morgans, then a pretty girl of nineteen, fell in love with Torn Winnau.nii engineer of the "Flying Scotch man." Tom's run was from Kings Station, Loudon, to York and return alternate days. The"Flying Motehman'a" service includes a train froiiiKdiuhurgh and one from Loudon, leaving each day at ten a. in., and passiug at Y'ork. The total distance is fonr hundred miles ; the time, nine hours. These trains carry the royal mail. Tlie Goverment con tract tails for a forfeiture of a jmund ster ling for every minute the train is behind the schedule time, which seldom happens. It is not an uncommon thing in England and M<-othind to find mail's work performed by women, and what more natural than iu this case to find woman's love of adventure, curiosity and love overcoming all objec tions. A short time only was required to bring alsmt her plans. With Tom's earnest assistance she was duly installed as stoker under his charge, her rough fustian suit and face purposely besmeared with coalduat and oil,completely disguising Tom's sweetheart. Day after day the "Flying Scotchman," en gine No. :si'J, with seven foot drivers, ami just from the shops at Dundoon, flew over the rails at the rate of fifty-two seconds to the mile — Honest Tom's hand ou the throt tle and his sweetheart lighting at the fire* lstx. :%ovei iinmtmi o4 i— SMID. the dust, the roar, neither confusion nor fa tigue, for Tom's cheery words and encour aging smile were ever rawly, slid his strong arms saving her the heavy burdens from day to day. It was her pride to keep the steam guage pointing at high-pressure mark. She understood the duties of oiling and cleaning, and was always ready to "lusik out the grate" or "set the guide cups." The engine had no cab, but instead tlie conventional English dash-board, an almost useless thing against a storm. It was not long liefore lier face became weather-beaten, which, together with the coal-dust and griuie, made the chance of discovering her identity less and less. Tom was very care ful. He watched to sec that no meddling engineer should observe that his "stoker" was a woman. Mo matters went on for nearly a year. Tom and she were to have INCH married. With the forethought of Trad dies, in "David Cnpperileld," hits of furniture and household utensils were bought, and the day looked forward too for happy housekeeping ; but fate had decreed otherwise. Torn Winnan was killed. He was run over in the switch yard by a shunt 'ed car and di*l within an hour, hi.* bead upon bis "stoker's" lap. It was then, when in lier anguish, Mattie Morgans' grief be trayed lier womanhood. She lh*l the country and came to the U nit<*l States. Her stock of money began to i dwindle. What to do next puaxled lier. | Tlie situation daily became more alarming. ! Des|ierate at last she determined to disguise herself and apply to some railroad master of motive power for a place as fireman. She was not long in securing a situation n ]sin a Conncticut railroad, and after serv ing for nearly two years was appointed as engineer of a freight locomotive. Perhaps lier experience is liest told in her own words. "Y'es, I was appointed engineer of the night freight. I had a seventy-four-mile run, and old "Ti' was my engine. Tbe first night 1 ran a forward strap of the main rod broke. 1 disconnected tlie main rod, cover ed the 'ports,' wedged up and fastened the 'cross head,' anil crawled twenty miles with only one side working, losing no less than one hour of my running time. Then 1 pit stalled in an up-grade and stood there until morning for a relief engine. 1 sui>- jsise you would think it strange if I should tell you that I have lioen inside of my en gine's fire Ixix, but of course it was cold. I have also lssui inside tlie spark arrester and shifted the diaphragam. Once while run ning a passenger train I keyed up and fas tened a slipped eccentric. We were run ning forty miles an hour when it happened. 1 shut off, gave her sand, turned the air cook for brakes and brought up the train all standing. My fireman and I crawled un der the forward driver axle and pried the eccentric into place. The passengers gatli erisl alsmt and looked on. My fireman elimlssl haek into the cab and worked the lever until the links came into place, and then tightened the sot screws holding the eccentric in place. I could not adjust the 'throw' to a nicety, and in consequence the 'lead* was a trifle 'oft"' on one side, so that when we started again tlie 'exhaust' barked unevenly, sounding like the exhaust of an engine not properly 'quartered.' I perform ed the job in six minutes which drew con siderable attention from railroad men. I received a letter of recommendation from tlie superintendent, and was shortly there after given the'day express' to run. I nev er had any serious accident, but I have kill ed two men. One was walking on the track. I blew and blew for hitn, but he did not bear me and was struck. The other man attempted to drive his wagon over a Terms, SI.OO per Year, In Advance. jfrailv <T<riMiii|f. I atrtu'k him und klllwl him itinl hi* horn** also.

At Vihlo'a Garden 'Lulu* broke tlie hearts ami won many favors from rich men. 'Lulu' was hurled from the catapult. He was shot out of a cannon. From concealed springs on the stage at Niblo's he w as fire! to dizzy heights, ami his graceful figure deceived the poor deluded men into offers of marriage. | 'Lulu' made a living by bis dUguis".

Mattie Morgans is but twenty-four years old. She has light-colored banged hair, large dark eyes, and is cjiilte handsome. Her face approaches, ]M-rha]M, the mascu line and has a determined expression of character,yet withal it lights up with pleas and smiles and Is*trays in unguarded mo ments the gentler feelings of the weaker sex. The Largest Circulation. What volume printed in the English lan guage has had the largest circulation next to the Bible? Give it up? Well, it is Welister's sjielling book. Something over 50,000,000 copies of this work have been published since it was first brought out in Hartford, and the royalties which old Noah Webster received on it were sufficient to snpjiort bis family liamlsoiuely while he was compiling his big dictionary. It is an instrustive volume and we advise every body to |eruse it,although as somebody said of the dictionary, the story is somewhat dis- OOnm-io.l. —/>w. ... i/..—i j Congressional Nomenclature.} There are some in teresting names found in the list of the fiftieth congress.

The life of fashion and wealth is wearisome and dreary enough and full of discontent if you will look un der its glittering surface, remarks the Philadelphia correspondent of the Chi cago Tribune. Did you ever think how pathetic are the sorrows of the rich f It seems natural that the poor should suffer, but when you think bow much mankind stands ready to pay for wealth, there is something pitiable in Ibo realization that, after all, riches do not always make happi ness. I realized the truth of this bit of philosophy very keenly the other day as I contemplated the cvery-day existence of the two wealthiest women in the United States. One was Mrs. John and Jacob Astor, of New York, the other was Mrs. Gammell.of Prov idence, B. I. Perhaps you have seen Mrs. Astor. She is a handsome woman rather, with a great sweetness and charm of manner. She was Miss Gibbs, of North Carolina, and h&sjust a shade of Southern accent, with all the soft gracefulness of style which is characteristic of tho beautiful women of the South. Both she and Mrs. Gammell were staying at a hotel at Atlantic City, on the seashore, about au hour and a half out ot town, where almost all fashion has gone this spring to build up, after the diversions and dissipations of the winter. Her gowns were extremely simple, and she wore no jewelry at all. Her hus band, as you know, is worth a hun dred and fifty millions of dollars, and of course is the richest individual in the country. He is a stocky little man, stout, self-willed, brusque, and walks frequently with a limp, the coo sequence of gout. He is rather taci turn with strangen, and has a mortal fear that because be is rich somebody will succeed in getting possession of his photograph and put it on sale like au actor's. He was a soldier and has the right to be called Colonel, having served on McClell&n's staff, and per- no. 22.

Mra Astor, of course, was the cynosure of all observers. She had many friends among the Pbiladelpbi ans at the house, to whom indeed she was like their own townsman, as her sou is married to Miss May Paul of this city, who, the Queea of Italy once said,is the handsomest American her Majesty had ever seen. She Was not much In evidence, however, and remained in her own room mostly all the day. Her mother in New York was extremely -Hlr wed *hs fear of death was always before her eyes. At last the blow came. Bbe waa at din. ner in the public dining-room, when a servant banded her a dispatch an nouncing her mother's death. What her grief was need not be said. She controlled It nobly in the presence of others. She desired now only one thing—to reach her people in New York. She sent out her servant to engage a special train for her. The ra an came back and told her be bad not succeeded. She sent out another and enlisted the clerks of tbe hotel in ber behalf. Money was of no mo ment. She would pay any price out of her millions for the boon. But there was failure all aronnd. The of ficials of tbe road could not arrange tbe matter, and so this poor woman with ber useless wealth had to wait boors in her sorrow for the regular train through to New York. Her companion in millions, Mrs. Gammell, was also ber comrade in sorrow. One scarcely ever caught a a glimpse of her lace, all lined and seamed by suffering. She bad just lost ber favorite son, a bright boy of eighteen or nineteen, and had come to tbe seaside directly from his grave. Occasionally one might see her black robed figure with its sad face, flitting along tbe corridor, but she seldom left her room. Only sat with her grief in its silence. Sermons ? Yes ; truly they are sermons. I recalled on my way to the shore, West End. There was no sign of life in or about it, though doubtless there was human existence within. It was like a tomb; so massive, and white, and still. It was the residence of Mrs. Jayne, the widow of Dr. Dav id Jayne, who made a fortune of sev eral millions out of patent medicines. When be first met the woman who afterwards became his wife, then his widow,she was in bis own employ .en gaged in the exhilarating occupation of wrapping circulars around bottles of nostrums. He was then a widower with children growing up, mad there was some opposition on their p art of the marriage. The marriage took piece, however, just the same, and Dr. Jayne began building his splendid residence in the fashionable quarter. Just asit was finished he died His widow moved into it afterwards, bat she has seen few happy days there- The bouse is never lighted np for any entertainment; no splendid company ever gathers under its roof; no child ish laughter rings through its richly appointed rooms. The widow lives there almost alone, save for her serv ants. It is said that when she wedded her last husband there was a condition imposed that after the marriage Bbe would know none of her own family. The will was quite in a line with such a provision. While it imposed the gpleudid residence on the widow it made no adequate provision for the support ot a style of living that would be in harmony with the costliness and luxury of the dwelling. So it is said that Mr". Jayne while appearing 'to live in regal solemnity, if not regal magnificence,has juite as mnch difficul ty iu making the ends meet as do many of her old-time poor relations.
