Bese Forrester's Escape.
"Everybody envies Rese Forrester."
The pale girl, in geld-colored silk, lifted
the bread lids from her clear eyes for a
moment, as the speaker's words reached
her ear ; then she bent ever the photo
graphs upon her lap again.
She handled the pictures with an enthu
siastic appreciation of their worth, se ab
serbed m their examination as te be totally
unconscious of the tall fair man who steed
quite near, looking down upon her with
an apparently suddenly awakened interest.
" Belonging te such a nice family, an
heiress, and se beautiful.
The continued words of the speaker
reached Heward Manley's ears, but evi
dently Rese Forrester did net hear them.
She turned with a sparkling smile te her
hostess and was still talking with her of
the photographs when Mr. Clinten brought
Heward Manley up for an introduction.
As she rose in the full light it revealed
that she was very young, scarcely twenty,
yet tall of stature, and witli a marked re
pose of manner.
Her beauty was net conspicuous she
was tee pale ; yet Manley saw hew per
fectly cut was every feature, hew clear the
dark gray eyes, hew dark the curling
lashes. The lips shut ever little teeth as
white as milk, and the contour of the face
was a perfect oval.
The girl's natural and spontaneous man
ner tela tuat sne gave the young man, at
first, no unusual attention. Little by lit
tle she observed him the fair hair, shad
owing the white forehead, the dark blue,
penetrating eyes, the unusual grace of
figure, the faultless dress.
Her manner was se cordial and friendlv
and unmistakably charming that Manley
nicked his brains for the chance of a next
meeting, but was obliged te aban
don it when Miss Ferrc-ter was joined by
She left the room, but instantly he
thanked his geed fortune at the finding of

hers. It was easy te decide the ornament

manage with ease te call upon her and re
Rese was net a belle. She had tee much
depth and passion of nature te ever be a
society woman ; but she had her admirers
and out of them she seen chose Manley.
She could net tell why, but his leeks,
words, every act had a charm for her. and
the eloquent bleed tinging her cool cheek
at his approach told him the story of his
He was a proud man he might well
have been a happy one but he often bore
an air of noticeable weariness and depres
sion. This, in answer te Rese's ccntlc in
quiries, he attributed te ill health.
Spring was opening with its vivid sun
shine, its balmy air, and Rese was very
happy. It seemed te her that it was the
pleasant influences of the season which
made her daily ways se light ; the tender
colors, sights and sounds surrounding her
daily walk with Manley in the park, which
made them se eniovable.
Perhaps they helped te make her spirit
strong be that she dared te say te herself,
''I love him !" and say it without reserva
tion or fear : for she knew that it was but
a little while since she had met him, and
of his past history and much of his piesent
she knew nothing.
Xe ; she feared nothing for herself. Te
love and be surrounded with tenderness
was happiness enough for her ; she asked
for no mere. Yet some instinct or trace of
worldly wisdom made her withheld her
confidence from her brother, who was her
guardian ; he knew nothing of the inti
Frem the night she had first met Manley
at Mrs. Clinten's party, she never knew
any one who knew him intimately. He
told her that he had no living female rela
tive no home.
He evidently had means at command,
and procured ler her, with an ingenuity
which was almost genius, the rarest and
most beautiful gifts. Her delighted recep
tion of them seemed a natural joy which
prevented any possible feeling of" obliga
tion en her side. In truth full of passion
ate impulse of youth, she was deaf, dumb
and blind te anything but the fullness of
Her brother came into the music room
where she sat at the piano, dreamily play
ing, one day.
"Rese, will you give me your attention
for a few minutes?"
He held an open letter in his hand, ne
was twenty years elder than herself, a
world-wise, prudent man.
" Dr. Wingrove proposes for your hand.
Yeu are aware that it will be a very ad
mirable match, are you net?"
Rese had a strange, stunned feeling,
yet she bowed faintly. Frem childhood
she had been greatly under her brother's

She found herself upon her feet shiver

" I would have a little time, Edwin."
"Certainly, if you wish," though his
brew slightly clouded. The doctor will

Hie next moment Rese had escaped
from the room, and was locked in her
During the next two hours she hardly
knew what she was doing. She found her
self walking the fleer, and wringing her
hands. At last she stepped short, with a
sense of pride.
"There is no reason no icasen in the
wertd. I dare tell my brother why I will
net marry Docter Wingrove."
Docter Wingrove was the noblest and
gentlest of men, singularly handsome,
wealthy and highly connected, and barely
thirty years of age. He had known her
since childhood, never made love te her,
but new that the offer of marriage had
come te her, she realized somewhat that
he had always loved her.
Rese was conscious of a racking pain in
her temples, at last. The chamber seemed
Catching up her cloak and hat, and ty
ing a veil of heavy black lace across her
face she went out into the street.
She seen walked herself weary, without
abating her painful sensation, and, return
ing te the street in which her residence
was situated; entered the public enclosure
of trees and shrubbery which ornamented
the square. A fountain bubbled in the
centre ; the store vases of flowers sent a
sweet perfume upon the air.
Se close te her home, she had no timid
ity, and sinking upon a circular seat sur
rounding a large tree, she gave herself up
te her absorbing thoughts.
It was seen dark, yet she had net
stirred. In her black dress. - in shadow,
she was quite unnoticed by two men who
crossed the street from the opposite side
and sat down behind her.
She would then have risen and glided
away quietly, but that the movement was
arrested by Heward Manley's voice.
"New, my dear brother, I'll stand the
risk no longer. I've passed false money
enough for you te shut me up for the rest
of my life, and I value my liberty,singular
ly enough," sneeringly.
" Well, well, I am willing enough te go,
Fred. Heaven knows that I am as sick of
the business as you can be. Coining isn't
all prosperity. In a new country I should
feel like another man. But "
I am sure of her. But I don't like te
urge a hasty marriage. She has an old fox
of a brother, who may be inconveniently
curious regarding my affairs If we oeuld
wait till the autumn, new. I mirht enter
some respectable business."
"I tell you it won't de!"
Beth rose in their exeitcmrnt and invel
untarily walked away.
Plainly under the gaslight Rese saw
Heward Manley and his brother pass into
the street. They were coiners.
Mere dead than alive, she crept into the
house. But Rese was net a weak girl. Be
fore midnight she had placed Heward's
gifts in a close package and scaled them
with a note, briefly stating that she had
overheard the conversation in the park.
The next morning it was dispatched.
As seen as her brother breached the
subject of Dr. Wiugreve's proposal, she
asked te have the latter call upon her.
He came, with countenance se high of
purpose, with eyes se full of truth, that
she involuntarily contrasted Heward's old
reticent face with it; but she told Dr.
Wingrove all the truth.
"Perhaps it was wrong, but I loved
mm loved him purely and my heart is
tern and bleeding. I am wild with secret
paiu which I must hide from evervbedv.
If I had never known him 1 But I cannot
imagine that. This terrible experience
has changed me ; I am net the care-free,
happy, trusting girl, you knew. I cannot
love you, but pity me be my friend, I
must talk te some one, and, eh, there is
no one in the world se kind as you."
Was Dr. Wingrove piqued by this recep
tion of his proposal ? Ne, he was tee gen
erous and tender-heartLd for that.
"Peer child!" he said, in a tene se
seething that, for the first time, Rese gave
way te a relieving burst of passionate
" What shall I de ? What de you think
of me?" she asked at last.
We will wait, and I think that I love

as the failure of the crops. Ne effort has
been made toward the relief of the unfor
tunate people by the authorities at Con
stantinople, for the reason that even if
they had the disposition te de se they
have net the means. The distress is net
confined te any particular class, the vic
tims of the famine beins Mehammedans
as well as Christians. Captain Everett,
writing from Erzereum, says : " In
many villages the people are tetallv
destitute, and deaths from starvation ares
constantly reported." A letter from
Mesul says: "Kurds, Arabs and Nesto Neste
rians fr m the mountains, who have abso
lutely no means of support, are constantly
flecking in in great numbers. There are
many deaths from starvation, and both
Christians nnd Moslems have for some
days past been selling their children te ob
tain a few piastres for feed, while ethers
abandoned their children at the doers of
the mosques and hbuses." The Syrian
Patriarch at Antioch says: "Terrible
distress prevails in Mesopotamia and many
people are dying of hunger." The bishop
ui iuesui writes inac tue people are se re
duced that many of them are eating dead
animals. An organization for the relief of
the sufferers has already been effected in

still knew its namrs of irrief for a time.
the summer brought change of scene
which was helpful te a spirit really brave
Dr. Wingrove joined Rese and her
brother at the seashore, te find brightness
in the young girl's eyes again, and te the
latter it was sweet te call se kind and
noble a man friend.
Together they climbed the rocks, drank
in the free air, watched the sunsets and the
sea. Of old they had been congenial, and
new they seemed mere happily se.
There is usually a sacredness about first
love, and perhaps it is expected of me te
record the death of the heroine of a broken
heart, but I must tell the truth.
In the autumn Rese married Dr. Win
grove. She is one of the happiest wives
in the world. The first love fell from her
like a false blossom, while the second
ripened into rich fruit.
The Bald Headed
Little l.'eck Gazette.
The ether day a lady, accompanied by her
son. a very small boy, bearded a train at
Little Reck. The woman had a careworn
expression hanging ever her face like a
tattered veil, and many of the rapid ques
tions asked by the boy were answeied by.
"31a," said the boy, "that man's like
a baby, ain't he?" pointing te a bald
headed man sitting just in front of them.
" Why must I hush ?"
After a few moment's silenje : "Ma,
what's the matter with the man's head ?"
" Hush, I tell you. He's bald."
"His head hasn't get any hair en it."
"Did it come off?"
"I guess se."
"Will mine coma off?"
" Sometime, may be."
" Then I'll be bald, -won't I?"
" Will you care ?"
" Don't ask se many questions."
After another silence the bev exclaimed.
" Ma, leek at the fly en that man's head."
" If you don't hush I'll whip you when
we get home."
"Loek! There's another fly. Loek at

"Madam," said the man, putting aside
a newspaper and looking around, "what's
the matter with that young hyena ?"
The woman blushed and stammered out
something, and attempted te smooth back
the boy's hair.
"One fly, two flics, three flics," said the
boy innocently, following with his eyes
a basket of oranges carried by the news
boy. "Here, you young hedge hog," said the

" But it blew terrible hard."

When she had gene an acquaintance who
