ironical. "I havo but ono daughter,
and I havo very illfteront plans for her
future. You understand mo?"
i'i cannot fail to do so." Tho young

Sho looked front oao to tho other' with
open, wondering eyes; tho yoiulg man
was deadly rule mid his lips weio
firmly set; indood, ho looked very un
liko a lover, but very h.inds'ime.
"You will kindly cling to foots, Mr.

"Papa " Leola had not taken tho

papa," tho girl said, her ckeoks flushed,
her eyes glowing. " I will say solely
what my heart prompts. I nm listening,
Mr. Alvon," turning to him, a slight
tremor in her voice.
Dick had been verypatient, considor-
ingthat ho was not usualoy slow to auger.
He was rathor p.ilo still, as ho lifted
his head and addressed Leola.
"I nm what I havo just been called,
Miss IForrester-a beggarly lawyer; but
I am a man for nil that. It may scorn
as strnngo to you as it does to your
father that ono iu my circumstances
should think of lore or a chauco of
happiness boing unablo to purchase it ;
and yet I wrong you I you will listen
patiently while I tell you that I liavo
grown to lovo you with a man's best
love, nnd ask if there bo not a chauco of
my winning you. ot now, whllo 1 can
offer you but my empty lmud and honest
lovo ; but somo timo when I havo won

your heart that would speak for mo do
notBilenco it. I am saying this to tho
woman I love, not to Mibs Forrester, tho
bcllo and Jhciross. Will you answer mo
hero iu your father's pioienco? I would
take no answer from him ; I would tako
an answer only from your own lips.
What will itbo?"
His 'words, which had mado tho veins
on tho banker's forehead swell with
indignation, moved Looln strangely;
she flushed and paled, nnd thojiand on
tho chair began to tremble.
"And I havo told you sho wants nono

impatiently. But his daughter turned
to lum with u sudden gesture which
-tj'How much yon are mistaken, papa,"
sho said clearly; "for I do want it all

to Dick, "and I honor the frankness of

But sho held out her hands to Diclc,
and ho wa-s covering thorn with kissoa
and whispering loving, disconnected
words of affection,

But she smiled in her lover's faco and
"I know perfectly, papa. I nm promis
ing to be Dick's wife, aud telling my
self how happy I am going to be."
"You will bo a boggar, then," Mr.
Forrester said, through his shut tcoili.
"IU givo my money to somo charity;
I'll found nu asylum-I'll sink it in tho
Hudson river. You Bhall never touch a
dollar of it."
"Papa dear, monoy is very nice, but
it is uot everything, ospooially to a
woman," Loola said, quietly. "I don't
think I'll mind very much, papa."
I'll close; my dco :t ngainst you I I'll

Sho palad theu.

I could not livo without that."

smiling rather heartlessly, I confess, at
tho aoeno ho had caused.
"I think this can lie arranged n littlo
differently, nfter nil," ho said cheerfully.

It is a ead truth that tho chloral habit

This society, until it is crushed out,

and its principal dogma wo3 tint no sin
could bo so great but that suflloient
expiation would purge it nway. Thero
aro 20,000 penitents and as thoy aro
mutually sworn to assist uud protect' ono

it will readily be seen what u formidablo
hydra tho Now Moxiciu Judges havo to
deal with. It is only the powerful
influence of their priests that keeps thorn
at all within bounds. The public sorvioos
of expiation nro held onco a year, in
Holy Week. There is nover any lack of
expiauts. An imago of tho Virgin is
placed in the centre of thu church, or in
the oampo santo boforo it, aud tho
ground for many yards in front of it is
strowu kneo deep with cactus, whoso
poisonous Bpinea will sometimes piorco

bed of living thorns the penitents march
with naked feet or crawl along on bare
knees, calling piteously tho whilo to the
Virgin for forgiveness of their Bins. As
if this wero uot sufficient, they acourgo
themselves with great bundles of
cactus tiod together on a thong, and
slash themselves with knives. The
natural result of theso horrible exorcises
is n death now and then, mid many

A 'croup of islands known" as ' tho
Nicobars' ' situated about 150 miles south
of tho Andamans, has bebh, ' but' ' littlo
explored, though Iho manners and
customs of tho inhabitants of ' theso
islands offer very interesting peculiari
ties to tho notico of tho ethnologists.
Ono of tho most noticeablo of these, and
ono which seriously affects tho tra'do' of
the islands', is tlio passion for old hats,
which, without exception, provades tho
whole framowork of society. No ono
is exempt from it louug aud old
chief and subject, aliko ondeiypr to
outvio each othor iu the singularity of
shapo no less than iu the number of old
hats thoy em acquire during thoir life

it is no unusual tiling to see tho surfaco

islands dotted over with canoes, m each
of which tho uoblo savage, with nothing
wliatovcr on but tho conventional slip
of cloth and a tall white hat with u
black baud, may bo watched standing
up and catching fish for his daily meal.
Second-hand hats aro rao3t iu request,
now hats being lookod upon with sus
picion and disfavor. This curious
passion is bo well known tliat tradew
from Calcutta mako annual oxoursious
to tho Nicobars with cargoes of old hats,
which they barter for cocoanuts, tho
only products of theso islands, n good,
tall whito hat, with u black baud, fetch
ing from flfty-fivo to sixty-five good
cocoanuts. Intense oxcitoment por-
vades tho island whilo tho trado is going
on, and fanoy prices nro often' asked
and obtained. When tho hats or cocoa
nuts havo at length como to an end, tho
trader generally lands a eisk or two of
mm, and tho wholo jiopulatiou in their
hats got drunk without intermission
until tho rum also comes to nu eud. It
is curious that in thoso far away legions
so protltablo a market should bo found
