A JEWELER'S BANKRUPTCY,
Mr. Robert Milliccnt was ono of tho
unemployed. His trade was burglary,
but times wero bad and ho was tem
porarily under a cloud. To be explicit,
ho had just como out of prison, and a
prolonged period of penal scrvitudo
had somewhat affected his health, llo
needed rest and good living, but un
icjitiinniciy mo companion ana partner
of Ins-most recent escanado had dis
appeared with tho whole proceeds of
their joint adventure. To malco mat
ters worse, nearly all of his most trust
ed conenuues were at I le moment, in
enforced st elusion ; and those who re
mained at largo found business so dull
that Ihoy could render him no assis.
tance. IIo did not feel equal, juit at
)ieseiit,to resuming the arduous duties
of hw profession, tbo moro especially
as Ihe police wero keeping a very
stiict eyo upon him. In fact, until the
vigilencu ot his enemies relaxed n little,
nu nao no alternative but lo remain
Under these sad eiroiiintlnnpos Afr.
Milliccnt was naturally very much de
pressed, and it grieved his proud sp'nit
to lind hiui'clf driven to tho unworthy
expedient of begging letter writing.
However, the necessity of obtaining
inu menus 01 exigence overcame bis
scruple, and his touching appeals pro
duced somo stray contributions.
Among other pcis.jns ho addiessed
himself to was Mr. Hiram Facet, a
..1.1... tir.... -i.v. , , . '
nu.uLujf sv tut jmui jeweler, in ap-
piuauiiiiig mis gentleman, iilr. Mini
cent did not represent himself in neith
er ol ins tavoritc characters of a widow
wm. i-ix cmiuri'n, or a tonsmnptivo
engineer lately blessed with tiiplets.
Ilo signed his own name, and, remind
ing Mr. Facn that they had beenxlass-
m.ites in the same charity school,
frankly asked for a trilling loan for the
sake of old acquaintanceship.
It was perfectly true that the wealthy
jeweler and tho despised burglar had
imbibed tho rudiments of education at
the samo institution, but Mr. Millieent's
scholastic career had been cutshoit by
somo act of depravity beyond his years,
which led to his adopting a predatory
mode of life. Mr. Facet, on the other
hand, had profited by his opportunities,
and had risen in tho world. Thoy had
never met since their youthful days,
but Mr. Milliccnt had kept a watchful
eye upon his successful friend, and had
long meditated making a raid i.pon bis
valuable slock in trade.
The burglar was not very sanguine
that his application would meet with a
favorable respoueo , but ho neverthe
less waited the result with a certain
amount of cuiiosity. Rather to his
surprise, ho leceivtd a letter from Mr.
Facet couched in fritndly terms, en
closing a postal order for a sovereign,
and requesting him to arrargo a pri
valu nnd confidential interview.
Mr. Millieent's disposition was natur
ally suspicious, and ho was inclined to
be shy of making appointments with
strangers, but, as his old schoolfellow
left tho details entirely to him. hr.
selected a-quiet publio house where ho
would feel perfectly at home, and ex
pressed his willingness to meet Mr.
Facet theio on a certain day and hour,
which ho named. Mr. racet arrrnprl
tn the suggestion, and, punctually at
tho timo indicated, ho nresonte.1 him.

Tho burglar perceived at a rrlnnnn
that his visitor had taken the
tion to disguiso himself. He woro his
hat over his eyes, his coat collar was
turned up, and his feat urea worn unit.
cealed as much as possible by a mulller.
Nevoitheless. Mr. Milliccnt recognized
him instantly, and felt slightly awed
by his air of respectability and author
ity. After vouchsafing the briefest of
greetings, Mr. Facet inquired whether
ihery was a private room where they
could talk without being overheard.
Having foreseen this reounst. Mr.
Millictnt had engaged tho bar parlor,
whither ho conducted bis vislinr with
deference. Mr. Facet ordered snirils
and water, and when thoy wero alone
together ho immediately proceeded to
' So you'ro Bob Millicent. arn vnn 7'
he romaiked, looking at him keenly.
" es, sir, ' said tbo burglar modestly.
"I remember you at school verv
well," continued Mr. Facet, "and I'vo
heard of you since from timo to time.

Mr. Facet took his departure, leav

ho was none tho lees delighted at his
good luck, and anticipated with keen
ple&suro the sensation which such a
coup would causo in professional cir
cles at such a dull season.
Tho blank postcard duly arrived,
and Mr. Millicent, having made all his
preparations beforehand, was ready
for action at tho appoitod time. IIo
found everything had been arranged
by Mr. Facet with scrupulous fidelity
and exactness, nnd the result was that
having been instructed beforehand
where tho moBt valuablo goods were

part of the operation with comoloto

realized with painful clearness thai ho
had bwen mndo a catpaw of by tho
sagacious Mr. Facet who had, no
doubt, desire 1 to account for tho dis
appearance of certain articles which ho
had hiinself aiinrnnriated. Thn idn.i
of having been deceived by a person
who had rome to him in tho guNo of a
friend, and particularly a person quite
outside tho profession, made Mr Milli
eent's blood boil with indignation, and
ho resolved that Mr Facet should pay
dearly for what ho had done.
IIo was for a long timo unable, how
ever, to frame any definite scheme of
revenge, for a very littlo reflection suf
ficcd to convince him of his helpless
ness. Tho circumstances of tlio case
wero so peculiar that ho bad no redress,
lie could not strike at Mr. Facet by
disclosing his perfidity without incur
ring personal risks. To do him jus
tic", Mr. Milliccnt was not a blood
thirsty person, and though ho carried
a revolver in the exersiso of his pro
fession, ho always shrank from using
it. IIo even preferred to avoid vio
lence of any kind, and for that reason
ho resisted his first impulse of confront
ing Mr. Facet and openly accusing him
of his treachery. It was hardly prob
able that any useful result would accrue
from this, and the jeweller seemed
quite capable of knocking a mm down.

As before staled, he disliked personal

Hearing bis temporary abode, a detect

Thero was a very sensational report
in die paptrs the next day of tho cap
luro of a well-known burglar, with tho
piocccds of a recent robocry actually
in bis possession. Tho extraordinary
affair excited a goi'd deal of specula
tion, ami gave unbounded satisfaction
to tbo cieditots of Mr. Facet, who had
thus, almost by a miracle, recovered
most valuablo assets. Mr. Millicent
again made his appeal anco in tho dock
nt tbu Old Bailey, and, by circumstan
tial evidi nee, against which ho vigor
ously protested, bu was found guilty ot
the famous burglarly. He preferred
to hold bis tonguo concerning tho
maimer in which lie bad acquired-trie
canvas box, nor did Mr. Facet como
forwaul to bear testimony against him.
That gentleman was unable to appear
at the trial, having phot himself lather
badly as it was explained, in caielissly
handling a revolver. The prisoner was
observed to smile when this statement
was made; but bis expression was tho
reverse of hilarious when he was sen
aenced to foutteon years' penal servi
tude. As to M. Facet, contrary to
the expectations of the knowing ones
among his friends, his bankruptcy
turned out a very bad speculation, and
lie has never lifted bis bead since.
A AVashington special to the Indian-
apnlis Journal has the following :
A lelativo of tho Grant family in
this city is authority for I ho statement
that tho married life of Nellie Grant
Sanoris is far more bumilatiug and un
pleasant than has yet been made pub
lie. Mrs. Sartoris makes her home
witfi her husband's father, in the north
of England, and according to all ac
counts, sbo is treated as a sort of poor
relation. Two rooms are set aside for
tho uso of herself and children, and
their meals aro furnished, but nothing
tlo is given to them either by her
husband or Mr. bartoiu, Sr. So far,
indeed, as tho younger Sartoris is con
cerned, it is said that ho has not con
tributed a penny to his wife's support
It is a well-known fact that for a
couple ot years prior to General Grant's
death leniiltauees of money wero regu
laily sent to Nellie to provide herself
aud children with clothing and other
useful articles. When the General be
came impoverished through the rascal
ity of Ferdinand Ward, the greatest re
gret ho is said to havo expressed was

who was practically suimorted bv his
bounty. All tbo members of tho Grant
family still contribute to the support of
Mrs. Sartoris, and tho children have
urged Mis. Sartoris for years to sepe
rate from her husband and return to
America. It is said that Mrs. Grant
made such a request only a few months
ago, after learning of some fresh indig
nity on Sartoris' part, but the daughter
replied that she would not entertain
such a proposition a moment, and add
ed indigiuiutly that she would refuso to
sustain relations of any character with
her family if these importunities did
not cease. Meanwhile Sartoris is rac
