STORY SUGGESTED BT THE HO
TURE GALLERY OF AN ANCIENT
I sal iu tlio dull, ntlll, lonely house,
long nftcr tlio enrly dinner hour, wait-
tu; lor Homo ouo to conio in itnu bi'cak
tlio opprcsuivo silence. I would havo
welcomed nnytlilns that could havo
been called sound. Nothing to be
heard during tho long, nuiet hours but
tho lickingof tho greilt clock, nnd loud
er still, tho great cathedral notes of my
own heart, which beat so that 1 could
hear every pulsation as it rang out the
assuranco that I "still lived."
Suddenly I seemed to havo a desire
to look on tho family portraits which
ting, not in a gallery, but all along
tho walls of tho long, dim hall. Tho
afternoon was chilly and damp, and so
dark from an approaching shower that
the largo room in which Iliad beet sit
ting was tilled with tho shadows which
were thrown upwards from tho lights,
for oven at that season the hearth at
my grandfather's was novercold.
1 know that tho history ot ail these
dumb yet eloquent beings of tlio past,
save one for many, many lioure bad
bcon spent in my childhood wandering
up and down their Btaircase, with my
litllo hand enfolded in my grandfath
er's, whoso own portrait vas anions
them. 1 remember how difficult it was
to nnaociate tho bent and aged form,
tho silver hair and sunken oyes, with
the broad shoulder, bright chestnut
curls and flashing orbs depicted on tho
canvas. It was a great mystery to my
childish mind the creat mystery of
nature, and though recognized by us
all, is yet unsolved. This slraugc,
mysterious pnnoiplo of , decay, acting
upon that only which is breathing nnd
sentient ; nover renewing itself, but
waiting year after year, while only tho
inanimate crows fro-m with each re
It was not to my grandfather, how
ovor, that I owed my entiro knowledge
of tho pictured forms. That would
lavo been too far beyond my compre
hcnsiou, that lnnor history ot their
ivcs. litit so much timo had I spent
with him there, and soiutimato had 1
become with them, for ho had always
called them by their names, as though
they wero living being'-, that it only
made mo yearn for a deeper revelation
of their lives as I grow to appreciate
To his daughter, a womau of strong
cultivated mind, but Irom somo Borrow
in hear early life, of somewhat melan
choly, perhaps morbid: tendency, I
learned to fill up the outline which fath
er had only begun : and at fifteen the
portraits had a charm tor me beyond
"And this is the one called Marga

"Because giandfather always said to
that picture, '(iood moruing.Marcarot;
sometimes it was 'dear Margaret,' " I
Sho sighed and tried to turn tho sub
ject, but I could seo that she glared at
the portrait sovcrai tunes, and mem at
me. At length she said :
"You are really getting to bu
voting lady, Helena! it seems so
strange. You havo always seemed so
very childish until now ! It is only this
month back that I tiavo noticed that
you aro as tall as I am." Sho paused
a moment, and then resumed : "I used
to think that you rosemblo this very
picture, but your mother would nev
allow mo to sayso."
I longed to ask why, but there was
something about nor that provented
me, especially as I had frequently no
ticcd with wonder that this portrait, al
though tho best by far in tho collcc
tion both in tho faco itself and tho ar
tistic uiorit, was placed in a corner of
the staircaso in a bad light, and with
every appearance of neglect or want of
appreciation. It was now only that
saw it to advantage, aud that was be
cause tho whole staircaso was darkened
by tho passing thunder storm, and the
skylight at tho top of tho long upper
hall blew off, nnd tho red lightning
streamed upon the pictures. 1 had
been gazing at them as I paced tho
hall, for in thunder showers I was over
unquiet und ri.-stlons, and I was often
attracted to tho 'Margaret'' that it was
no marvel that atthatmomout my oyes
should havo been tixed on that lace in
stead of any other.
That momentary gleam 1 How it
electrified mo ; not as usual, with fear
and affright, but with a now percep
tlon of its effect upon others. I had
seen'"Margaret" as I should never,
probably, seo her again. 1 never
thought of tho rain that streamed dow
in torrents through tho open aperturo
abovo mo. I scarcely hoard Aunt
Esther, who was calling "Helena 1" at
tho very top of her shrill voice, and
whom I saw, as I looked up, busy
with tubs nnd pails to catch tlio mun
I only watched for another gleam
and I did not, watch altogether in vain
but tho second was a pale, wliito streak
that gavo a strango beauty, too mourn
ful to make mo wish for it again i ant
I ran iuto my room, shut the door and
throw myself on to tho bed while teaiu
(lowed irom my oyes.
Aunt Esther camo dustling in, stal
led from her usual moody stato by tho
passing storm. "Mercy, Helena!" sho
exclaimed, in a voicu that came sharp
aud ringing to my oar ; "why don
you co in o nnd help us to stop tho
I laughed outright through my tear
"Can you stop it, aunty!" said I.
Sho caught sight of tho glitter on my
wet check and was checked in a mom
ent from tho almost ftngry words sho
about to utter. "My poor child," sho
said, "you aro really frightened ; Ho
still dear, and I willoooioto you as soon
as tho man gets tho skylight closed
When, half an hour later, sho
(tamo to uiv hodsida I was iust wakin
from a dream in whioli Aunt Either
was standing on tho edgo of tho roof i
tho act of throwing "Margaret into
largo cistom in tlio stroot, and I was
holding out my hands to break its

"Now, aunt, toll about that picture
I havo seen it by this lightning, as I
shall never sec it ngaln, and I want to
now its history.
Sho mado some feint of not being
willing, but I do beliuvo that alio was
dying to relate it to me. Tho shower
was not vet over. It was nearly daik,
and tho low, blaok clouds still camo
rolling upward, and tho long, mutter
ing sounds ol tho thunder wero still
beard, and a sharp uasii oi ngiiiiiing
camo, making me wish that i could
gain gtt7.c on tho picture. Hut tlio
skylight was rcploced, and tho heavy
boards wero nnueti down ovor u more

thought of keeping it open to light tho
Aunt Esther placed herself in tho
largo flowered easy-chair which had
been my dear mother's when sho was
living. Her tall, thin prim figuro roso

Margaret, then, was tho sister ot my
grandfather, tho only and idolized
daughter ot tho family tno pet of
four or live brothers, all older than her
self the graceful, beautiful, accom
plished representative of tho female
part of tho Greenwood household.
That she should ho petted and ido
lized was not strange, for no lovelier
being had ever dawned upon humanity
no brighter, happier impersonation
ot youth, intellect and gracelul beauty
over beamed upon a household than
All that wealth could procure was
lavished upon her enjoyment ; all that
lovo could deviso was poured out like
water al her feet. Throughout tho
household Margaret's comfort and hap
piness wero tho engrossing thomcs. In
trilles, as in things of magnitude, there
was a positive passion to nunistor to
hor gratification. Not a dress did she
hang upon her dainty little person that
was not imported especially lor use.
Not an ornament graced her that over
saw tho light of an American jcwol
caso. Copely painted her, it was true:
bat Copely was tho princo of portrait
painters at that period, and his pictures
will ever be recognized as perfect in
individual expression ; possessing an
inimitable charm ot altitude, an indes
cribablo beauty of coloring, and though
last but not least, an adoption ot cos
lume combining tho richest material
with tho most faultless simplicity in
its shaping j reproducing only thoso
classic methods of drapery which aro
ever new and beautiful. There aro few
families which would not like to boast
of ancestral paintings from tho hand
of Lord Lyndburst's father.
Well, Margaret's husband must bo
imported, too : and when Walter
Groenwood (my grandfather) returned
from IvIinlHU'g, whero ho had finished
his education, he brought with him
young Leonard Bruce, and at 1(5 Mar
garet was betrothed to him. Never
was a moro perfect match to all appear
ances. Both wero surpassingly hand
some, both highly intellectual. Jvich
had a certain individuality of look,
character, expression, so different from
all others around them, aud so well in
keeping with each other. And yet
Margaret did not lovo him. Sho was
blinded to her own true feelings by the
stato ot tilings around her. iter sud
den and 'evident admiration, her broth
cr's enthusiastic friendship for him, tho
interest which ho excited in all who
saw him, gavo a sort of blind compul
sion to her conduct in consenting to
become his wife, nnd she tacitly al
lowed tho preparation for hor marriago
to proceed. It was celebrated with all
the parade which could bo brought to
bear upon it, and envy itself admired
what it did not duro to depiecate.
Margaret was queenly in her mar-
miago robes : but her eyo did not onco
turn with a confiding glauco to the
noble figure by her sidu. Thcro was
an element plainly wanting, which,
when present, sanctifies tho simplest
bridal absent, tno grandest ceremon
ial sinks into a falsehood.
It was a heavy stroke to tho family
whon thoy found that Leonard Bruco
determined to tako his wife to Scot
land. Thoy had itevcr dreamed of it.
Walter Greenwood had always suppos
ed that no would settle in America lor
Leonard had always lavorcd tho sup

journeying, and corresponding time of

him which could not but pain those
who loved her. Walter resolved to
visit her, and after a fow months' ab
sence he, too, returned, sad and cvi
deutly distressed, but inexorably silent
as to his Minora appearance or appa
rent stalo of mind. Loving his sister
us ho did, it was not possible that ho
could still his trouble heart while there
was a shadow over her, and finding it
impossible lo foibear showing some, nt
least, of his real feelings al home, ho
went to Kuglautl.
Ilo was crossing tlio channel from
Dover to Calais, when ho observed two
figures on board, one of which remind

evidently disguised, for various unnec

and her faco was enveloped in a thick
veil i but tlio graceful turn ot tho head
could not bo concealed, and that was
Margaret's. Walter almost fainted,
but ill a moment ho laughed at himself
for Ins absurd tears, and withdrew
without haying been seen.
A second time ho saw them, and sho
was loaning on the arm of hor coinpan

pressed to her eyes, outsido of her

Walter attributed his own fancies to

again ho saw her liana. It was like
his sister's and had tho samo shell-

often admired. There was not a singlo
jewel upou it, not even acirclotof plain

revealed by the falling back of the
sleeve, was a broad baud of gold, so
pure aud line that it needed no clasp to

around her, effectually barring tho on

CON815J. A letter from ox-Congressman Pound,
of Chippowa Falls, in which tho writer
says ho will oppose Mr. Blaine and
support Governor Cleveland for tho
Presldenoy, was mado nubile last week.
Mr. Pound is perhaps tho most distin
guished republican in Wisconsin, and
his opposition to Mr. Blaiuo witl cause
a profound sensation throughought the
northwest. Ho has for years been an
unwavering leader in the republican par
ty, always stipportimng tho ontiro tick
et, nnd has been very prominent in its
councils for 20 years. Ho was a lead
ing member of tho slate legislature in
18GI, lH(iO, 1307 and 1809. Ilo was
elected lieutenant governor in 1809,
and was in 1870 elected to congress
from tho cighfli district, then embrac
ing moro than half tho area of Wiscon
sin. Ho Bervcd threo terms of con
gress, taking a prominent part. Ho
was chairman of tho Committee on
Public Lands in tho Forty-seventh
congress. At tho end of his third term
ho voluntarily retired from public lifo
to devote himself to private enterprise.
His repudiation of Mr. Blaino proceeds
from no personal griovauco or disap
pointment, but from a linn conviction
that the republican nominco is not tho
man for tho place. Mr. Pound has
thousands of friends in Wisconsin. Ilo
was a close friend of Garfield, and was
strongly urged for a cabinet position.
Following is Mr. Pound's letter :

worth, if not tho porpetuily of tho le-
publio, depends upon the maintenance
ot political and peruonal integrity as

branches. It is truo that detection and
correction of crookedness aud infidelity
of tho t-xcculivo branch of our govern-
inent are most dithcult while long mun
terruptcd control is certain to invite
abuso of power and opportunity. The re
publican party has enjoyed nearly twenty-four
years of continuous administra
tive authority, and whilo its history is
resplendent with glorious achievments
and hallowed by memories ot unrival
ed statemenship, patriotism and prow
ess, thcro havo crept iuto its human
machinery many grevious abuses and
ailment, demanding correction aud
cure, which may or may not bo accom

Mr. Blaino is not such a man, but,
tu my opinion, embodies most in Amer
ican politics that is menacing to pub
lie morals arid integrity in government,
With n long publio career, mainly din
tinguishcd tor a sort ot (tccinmatory
and pugilistic statecrafi, ho is not tho
inspiration of a single valuable policy
or tho author of an important statute,
but, on tho contrary, has often suggest

friends iustificd thoir deflection, which
defeatod a most excellent man, by tho
plea of lraud in ono proxy at tho stato

But returning to tlio candidate. The

readily satisfy the honest inquirer of
his uniform support of monopolies nnd

tlo wonder that ho omits in his letter
to refer to or explain tho causo of tho
great disparity in tho distribution of
this marvelous increase of wealth accu
mulated during tho period he chooses
for comparison ; that ho fails to note
tho fact that tho oiio-thrce-hundrcdlh

that ho is silent on tho subject of inter

is demandod by all producers and lo
gitimato traders. Great corporato in

tially conceal the truo inwardness of
this affair, as did his garbled rendering
of tho Mulligan letters first mislead

The disingcnuousnesb ot his letter ot

significant silence touching the events
oftho past threo years. Bringing

With no pronounced issues between

important to good govern tnent that the

has demonstrated his fitness and worth

of his executive duties as mayor of
