So Mr. Doxtcr wont to meet tho

put Ills nicco's plan into operation. Tho
interview was brief. Tho Count nvow.
cd his devotion to Miss Annio Doxtor,
nnd formally asked for her hand. Dex
ter, whoso rcpiignanco to tho fascinat

minished, point blank refused to en
tertain tho proposal. Tho Count wax
ed eloquent and expostulatory s en
largcd upon tho splendor of his fam

went oven so far as lo prcuttco n num
ber of papers which established his
identity beyond all reasonable doubt,
and invited Mr. Doxter to como into
his private room and inspect a quanli
ty of foreign orders and patonts of
nobility. But tlio American was ob
durate, and, seeing that all his plead
ing was in Vain, tlio Count went off in
n terriblo rago.
The next few days Wore somewhat
trying, both for uncle and niece. As
soon as Miss AiiDio heard of the dread
ful news of her lover's rejection she
attacked her guardian with every
species of argument nnd abuse she
could invent, and was only pacified by
tho threat that ho would discloso her
identity. Failing to mako nn impres

whom sho pestered for her cood olli

mnrricd her prospects in Hie.

"My dear Clara, what a magnificent

As tho days passed tho love-lorn
young ladj's temper improved mater

in his attention, though less obtrusive,
and tlio Doxters, undo and niece, pro
fessed lo tako no notice of tho aff.ur.
Tho St. Legcr week came on, and the
hotels were crowded to suffocation.

"What is it?
"I want you to lend tno your dia

"Oh, yes, you may have them." nu
swered Clara, smilingly. "Don't

So Miss Annie went to tho ball ar

naturally enjoyed herself immense
Tho next dav nearly every one in

"Blind Tom," the Slave.
When Charity Wiggins was rclcned
'oni slavery in ibO., she remained at
her old homo in Virginia, although her
husband came North and tried to in-
uce Charity to do so. Charity never
saw her husband after that and heard
from him but once, and that when he
died in Now York Stato in a littlo set-
ement noar Warrenton. Tho freed

lerself and two children by hiring out

Hlind Tom, the mtnic.il prodigy.
Two years ago Tom s manager, Mr.

Tom's former manager, was ap

Tlio widow of J. A. Hethune did
not like the appointment, however,
and alleged that as the heir of her hus

understood that she induced Charily
Wiggins to enter suit to teoover Tom,
and tho latter did so, swearing out a
habeas corpus, setting forth that Tom

on her. t wo tears roiled down the
