"Yon will excuse me, I know you will,'' said
Yeo, looking from one to another, but especial
ly at the American, "but I have just been in
formed that there are chamois visible on a
mountain shoulder, high, high, high up and
as there is an excellent telescope a telescope
outside, I thought I would make so bold as to
interrupt an animated conversation to bring to
jour notice this interesting fact."
"Thank you I do not -wish to see chamois,"
said Salome, slowly and coldly.
"or I I do not care to expose myself to the
sun," said Janet.
"Oh, anntl oh, anntl But they are so shy, so
rarer' from the three Labarte girls.
"Really, for my part," said Miss Durham, "I
am curious to see them. Though I have been
before in the Alps, I have never had the good
fortune "
"Then allow me to conduct your' exclaimed
Colonel Yeo. gallantly.
Thank you, sir, I can find the telescope my
self," answered the American lady. Then, to
her companions: "You will excuse my running
off. I really am desirous of seeing chamois."
She sailed through the salle-a-manger, with
Beaple Yeo prancing after her. hat in hand
and puggary waving. The Lebartes looked at
their aunt pleadingly.
"Very well, girls, if you wish, go after Miss
Durham," and away scampered the three.
"Oh. Salome!" sighed Janet, "I cannot bear
him! He promised not to interfere with us."
Salome sighed also. We must bear with him
a little longer. He will find this place dull and
take himself oft."
"But, Salome, what does he mean about be
ing Earl of Schofield? About the pearl and
strawberry leaves!"
"Money of course 1 ways money."
"I wish I had not let the girls go after him
to the telescape."
"It is a pity but Miss Durham is there."
"Yes, and with her they are safe. You like
'I admire her. I think I like her. If I were
a man I should fall madly in love with her,
but "
"But what, Salome?"
'My dear, I don't know."
In the meantime Beaple Yeo was adjusting
the telescope, peering through it, and pressing
on Miss Durham to look just at one point.
"Ah! quick before they tnovj." Then asking
if the sight were right, peering again, wiping
the lens with his silk handkerchief, and finally
when cither the chamois had disappeared or
the focus could not be got right, abandoning
the telescope altogether to the three girls.
"One, two, three churches here," said Mr.
Yeo. "And one a pilgrimage chapel. You
have perhaps seen some friars in snuff-colored
habits prowling about. Shocking, is it not?
Signor Caprili you have heard of the extraor
dinary efforts he is making to spread the truth,
the naked truth I mean. I beg pardon, the
unvarnished truth. Are you interested in
missionary enterprise?"
"Hot in the least. Superstition is charmingly
picturesque. How gracefully those towers and
spires stand out against the mountains! And
that chapel perched on a rock. I would not
have it abolished for the world. We have not
such things in America we come to the Old
"World to see them."
"Then, perhaps dogs," said Yeo. "You are
interested in Mount Saint Bernard dogs, and
would, no doubt, like to introduce one across
the ocean to your fellow countrywomen. Mag
nificent creatures, and so noble m character!
How their heroism, their self-sacrifice, their
genoroslty, stand out in contrast with our petty
linman vices! Verilr. I think wo intent with

Heayy rains were somewhat of a damper on
trade. Home-raised strawberries are in bounti
ful supply. Raspberries from Maryland, both
black and red, begin to appear, and a heavy run
is expected next week. Cherries are coming in
freely, but are not in tbe best shape, owing to
wet weather. The stuff in all fruit and vegeta
ble lines coming to markets of late has been
Fathered, shipped and sold in the wet, and is
depreciated in value at all points. Eggs are in
good demand. New potatoes and cabbage are
rifting downward. Old potatoes are better
preserved than is common at this time of the
year, and are active at our quotations. Last
year s sfpples are done. The first of thiB year's
crop arc due next week.

of these noble creatures, and that money only
is needed to float it"
"I assure you," said Miss Durham, "I am not
in the least interested in dogs."
"Not as a speculation?"
"Not even as a speculation."
Beaple Yoe was silenced.
"Excuse me," said Mrs. Durham, "you were
saying something about strawberry leaves the
wild Alpine strawberry is delicious."
"Oh! you misunderstand me," said Yeo, ele
vating himself to his full height, removing his
hat, shaking the puggary and putting on his
hat again, "I was alluding to the coronet of an
Earl to which I lay claim."
"Then, you are not an Earl yet?"
"I am not one, and yet I am one. The Earl
dom of Schofield was attaindcred attaindcred
at tbo Jacobite rebellion. My great grand
father took the wrong side and suffered accord
ingly ac cor ding ly. The attainder was
but for a while. Preston Pans was 1745; Cullo
den, 1716, April 16, and mygreatgrandfather's
attainder next year, attainder for 123 years
which laoses this year, 1S72. The Earldom Is
secure I have but to take it up to take it up;
in other words resume it, and Beaple Yeo is
Earl Schofield."
Salome and Janet appeared to call the three
girls to them, and were a little surprised to find
the Colonel and the American young lady al
ready on intimate terms. They were seated on
a bench, iide by side, and Colonel Yeo was ges
ticulating with his hand and whisking his png
gary in explanation of the Schofield peerage
claim, was following the genealogical tree on
the palm of one hand with the finger of the
other; was waiving away objections with his
hat, and clenching arguments by clapping both
hands on his knees. He was a man so richly
endowed by nature with imagination that he
could not speak the truth. There are such men
auduomen in the world to whom romance
rhodnmontade is a necessity,even when no ob
ject is to be gained by saying what is not true.
Some people emoroider on a substratum of
fact, but Beaple Yeo, and others of the like
kidney, spin the threads and then weave their
own canvas ont of their own fancies, and
finally embroider thereon as imagination
Darkness set In. that night as on every other,
and most of the tourists had retired to bed,
wearied with their walks and climbs, and those
tarrying at Andermatt had also gone Into the
uncomfortable Swiss-German beds, tired with
having nothing to do. Only two were awake,
in separate wings of the hotel. One was Sa
lome, the other the American stranger.
Salome had two candles lighted on the table,
and had been writing to Philip. She sat now,
looking through the open window at the starry
sky, with pen in hand, uncertain bow to con
tinue her letter. She wrote to her husband
every few days, and expected from him, what
she received without fail, letters informing her
of the health and progress of the baby. His
letters were formal and brief. When about to
write he visited the nursery, inquired whether
there were particulars to be sent to Mrs. Penny
comequick, and wrote verbatim the report of
the nurse. Salome had, indeed, only received
two letters, and the last had surprised and
overwhelmed her. It contained news of the
reappearance of Mr. Jeremiah. Her delight
had been exceeding; its excess was now
passed, and she sat wondering what would
be the result of this return on the
fortunes of Philip, and on their relations to
each other. Philip's letter bad been silent on
both these points. He merely stated that his
uncle had returned, was in robust health, and
added a brief account of the circumstances of
his escape and recovery. Not a word in his
letter about his desire to see her again, not a
hint that he was ready to forgive the wrong un

intentionally done him. Both letters were stiff
and colorless as if they had been business
epistles, and many tears had they called from
Salome's eyes.
Very different were her letters to him. With
out giving utterance to her love, every line
showed that her heart yearned for her bus
band, her baby, and for home. She wrote long
letters, hoping to interest him in what she and
her sister were about; she described the
scenery, the novel sights, the flowers she even
inclosed two forget-me-nots, with a wish that
he would lay one on her baby's lips. She mado
no allusion to tne past, and she did not tell him
of her present trouble with Beaple ieo. her
father. She shrank from informing him that
the man he bated was at Andermatt, the terror
and distress of her sister and herself. She had
written a letter to Uncle Jeremiah, to inclose
In that to her husband, and in that was not an
expression which could lead him to imagine
that ber husband was estranged frdm her.
She left this note open, that Philip
might look at if he pleased, before
delivering it She had broken off in the midst
of her letter to Philip to write this, and now
she resumed the writing to her husband. She
was describing the hotel guests, and had come
to an account of the Chicago heiress. She had
written about ber beauty, her eyes, her car
riage, her reputed wealth, only her dresses she
did not describe, she knew they would not in
terest a man. Then she proceeded to give
some account of her qualities pf mind and
heart, ana thereat her pen was stayed. She
knew nothing of either. She had imagined
a good deal but positively bad no acquaint
ance with the lady on which to form an opin
ion. What was there in the lady that so fascinat
ed her? She was attracted to her, she felt the
profoundest admiration for her and yet she
was unable to explain the reason of the at
traction. It was the consciousness that in this
stranger were faculties, experiences, knowl
edge she had not it was an admiration bred of
wonder. She had no ambition to be like her,
and she was not envious of her but she al
most worshipped her, but she was strong in
everything that she, Salome, was weak. That
she was, or might be, weak in everything where
in Salome was strong never occurred to ber
humble mind. Then, still holding her pen, and
looking dreamily into the night sky, Salome
passed in thought to ber own situation, ren
dered doubly difficult by her father having at
tached himself to her sister. She could not de
sert Janet under the circumstances. She must
be at her side to protect her from his rapacity
and insolence. And yet she yearned with all
the hunger of a mother's heart for her baby,
that she might clasp it to her and cover its in
nocent face and hands and feet with kisses.
And Philip . She loved him also, with the
calm unlmpassioned love that springs out of
duty. She bad liked him since first she saw
him, and the liking had developed into love a
quiet, homely love, without hot fire in it and
yet a true, steady, honest love. She could not
believe that her husband mistrusted her assur
ance that she bad not knowingly deceived him.
She did not know which was the most potent
force acting on bis mind hatred of the man
who was ber father and anger at being
unwittingly brought into relationship with
him, or dread of the scandal that
might come of the knowledge of the relation
ship. She had no confidence that her father
would not become again involved in some dis
graceful fraud which would bring his name
before the public; and this dread, of course,
must weigh on Philip as well. Beaple Yeo had
already attempted to express money out of her.
She was the wife of a rich Yorkshire manufact
urer, and Janet was the widow of a rich Nor
mandy manufacturer. He looked upon both as
squeezable persons, only at first his efforts to
squeeze bad been directed upon Janet who had
not a husband to oppose him. Salome, bow
ever, saw that he would not be at rest till he
had extorted money from Philip through her,
and the dread of this kept ber in constant un
rest How she now asked herself, or the stars
at which she was looking how would the re
turn of Jeremiah affect Philip's position andre
lievo her of this fear? If Jeremiah resumed
the factory then Philip would be no longer
wealthy, and a prey for her father to fall upon.
As she sat thus, thinking and looking at the
stars, so in the furthest wing of the same house
was Artemisia Durham, also thinking and look
ing at the stars. She had extinguished her
lights, and stood at the window. She was partly
undressed, her dark hair flowed about her I

When baby was sick, we gave her Castoria,
When she was a Child, she ciied for Castoria,
When she became Miss, she clung to Castoria,
When e.hehadChildren,she gave them Castoria
shoulders, and'her arms were bare. She had
her elbow resting on the window sill, and her
chin was was nestled into her palm, her fingers
clenched on her lips. Her brows were con
tracted into a scowl. The face was no longer
set, haughty In its beauty, and,yet with a con
descending smile; it was now evenhaggard, and
over it contending emotions played in the star
light altering its expression, unresisted, un
disguised. She thought of the admiration she had ex
cited in the schoolgirls, and in their elders, the
two ladies in deep mourning. A flicker of con
tempt passed over ber countenance.
What was the admiration of three half-grown
girls to her? Salome had attracted her notice
more than Janet She bad observed Salome,
while unseen by her, andthoughtsbe had made
out her character ordinary, duty-loving, con
scientious, narrow. A character of all others
most distasteful to Artemisia. She put her
hands to her brow and pressed them about it
"So, so," she muttered. "To have always an
iron crown screwed tight around the brain.
Then she shivered. The night air was cold in
the Alps at that elevation. She fetched a light
shawl of Berege wool and wrapped it round
her bare arms, and leaned both elbows of the
folded arms on the window. Her thoughts
again recurred to Salome, and she tried to
scheme out the sort of life that would com
mend itself to such as she a snug English
home, with a few quiet respectable servants,
and a quiet respectablo gardener; a respecta
ble and quiet husband, and a pony trap, in the
shaft? of which trotted a quiet and respectable
cob; improving magazines and sober books
read in the bouse;occaslonal dull parties given,
at which the clergy would predominate, and
sing feeble songs and talk about their parishes
and then one or two quiet, respectable children
would arrive who would learn their lessons ex
actly, and strum on the piano at their scales.
Artemisia's lips curled with disgust
Her hands clenched under the shawl, and
she uttered an exclamation of anger and
And what she considered, had she herself to
look to? She gazed dreamily at the stars, and
tears rose in her eyes and trickled down her
cheeks. Then, ashamed ot her weakness, she
left the window and paced her room up and
down, up and down and it was as though
through the open window, out of the night
streamed in dark forms, ugly recollections, un
comfortable thoughts, that crowded the room,
filled every corner, occupied every nook came
in thicker and darker and more horrible, and
she went to the window with a gasp of fear and
shut out the night wind and the gleam of the
stars, hoping at the same time to stop the entry
of those haunting memories and hideous
The street window would not shut them out:
the room was full ot them, and tneir presence
oppressed her. She could endure them no
more. She struck a light and kindled the can
dles in the room.
What was that on her dressing table? Only
a little glass full of wild strawberry leaves and
fruit one of the admiring Labarte girls had
picked and given to her and insisted on her
taking to her room.
Artemisia laughed. She took the straw
berries out of the water. She unclasped a
necklet that was about her throat on which
wereKomau pearls. She put it around her
head, and thrust the strawberry leaves in be
tween the pearls, then looked at herself in the
glass and laughed, and as she laughed all the
shadow figures and ghostly recollections went
tumbling one over the other out of the room by
the keyhole, leaving her alone laughing, part
ironically, part triumphantly, before the glass,
looking at herself in her extemporized coronet
If Jeremiah Fennycomequick supposed that
he could slip back into the old routine of work
without attracting much attention, and with
out impediment he was quickly undeceived.
His reappearance in Mergatroyd created a pro
found sensation. Everyone wanted to see him,
and everyone had a hearty word of welcome.
He was surprised at the amount of feeling that
was manifested. He had lived to himself, seen
little society, nevertheless he suddenly discov
ered that he had been popular. Everyone with
whom be had been connected in however small
away respected him, and showed real pleasure
at his return. The men at the mill factory

Rainy Weather Unfavorably Affects tho
Produce Trade Butter, Cheese and
Efigs Are Active Packers Get
Better Prices at Chicago
Than .rittsbure.
Office of Pittsburg Dispatch,
Saturday, June 15, 1889. J
Daily rains have had a depressing influence
on produce in a variety ot ways. First tbe
gardener has had his difficulties ingathering
stuff. Next, the floods have delayed trains, so
that products come to market more or less de
preciated in quality. And last the buyer and
consumer have been kept at home by tbe unfa
vorable condition of weather, and the total
outcome has been a slow market in produce
lines for the week. It is doubtful if a finer
quality of home-raised strawberries ever
showed up in Pittsburg markets than for the
past few days. Maryland strawberries are
close to their end, and between delayed trains
and rainy weather have been coming in in
rather poor shape. The choice home-raised
berry has found readier sale at 10 and
12c than tbe Maryland frnit at one-half
these figures. The first raspberries of the sea
son have appeared within a day or two. An
other week will retire the strawberry 'and put
the raspberry on top. New potatoes and cab
bage have been steadily drifting toward a
lower level. In the line of butter, eggs and
cheese we have no changes to report in prices.
At Elgin there was a drop of c on creamery,
but tbe only effect here has been that markets
aro a shade easier. Country butter is still in
supply above wants of trade, and holders aie
compelled to make concessions in order to un
load. A leading jobber of butter, eggs and cheese
said to-day: "I have had a much better trade
this week than last, and, in fact better than
any w eek this spring. My books show larger
sales than for the corresponding week of last
"My chief trouble has been to procure enough
stock to meet demands. Everything goes out
as fast as it comes in. My cheese sales for tbe
week will reach 1,600 boxes and there have been
a number of days when more could have been
sold if they had been on hand."
The same dealer reports an active demand
for butter and eggs, but no advanee in prices.
Somehow active movement of goods falls every
time this season to lift prices.
Supplies have been larger this week than last
Offerings are more than ample for wants of
trade. The result is that only the highest
grades find ready sale. As the new crop ap
proaches there is a drift toward higher prices.
Rejected oats and bay are very poor stock and
can only be sold at liberal concessions.
In fact it has been a marked feature of our
markets all this season of abundance that
only good goods have much of a show. A low
grade article goes begging, and more and more
as the time for tbe new crop approaches.
Tbe marked feature of the trade for the week
past has been tbe advances in sugar. Three
times during tbe week prices have been raised
c At the week's windup sugars are as firm
as at the beginning, notwithstanding the ad
vances. Coffees are practically unchanged, thongh
options are a shade easier than they were a
wee ago.
Flour stands as last Saturday in the quota
tions of wholesale grocers.
Jobbers, however, are doing some cutting if
not belied, and The Dispatch commercial
editor is of the opinion that flour can be sold
below our quotations and still leave a reason
able profit Carload lots ot the best spring
patents can be laid down in Pittsburg a shade
below $5 50.
Pork packers are not all jubilant over the
sitnation. Tbe suspension of traffic 011 the
Pennsylvania road for tbe past two weeks has
shut out one of the most important sections
for this traffic One ot our leading packers
said to-day: "I can see few bright features in J
our trade ror the week past Orders and col
lections are far from being as good as they
should be at this time of the year. We look
for greatest activity when hot weather comes.
Weather has not been propitlons to our trade
this season so far. Onr firm sold 250 tierces of
sweet pickled 16-pound hams in Chicago last
Tuesday, which netted us o a pound more
than they would have brought us In Pittsburg."
The range for mixed packing hogs at Chi
caeo to-day being $4 25 to $4 50.
Select light packers sell there at $4 50.

their honest and somewhat dirty faces shining
with good will; the factory girls came about
him with dancing eyes and ".Eh! but ah'm reet
fain to see thee back agin!" The little trades
people In Mergatroyd the chemist, the baker,
the grocer, ran out ot their shops when he
passed, to give a word of congratulation. The
brother manufacturers those who had been
rivals even called to see him and express their
pleasure. ' The wives also dropped in they
could not await the chance of seeing him, they
must come to his house and both see the man
returned from the dead, and learn from his
own lips why he bad made them all believe he
had perished. To all he gave the same account
no had been ill, and when he recovered found
that he was already adjudged dead, and he ro
solved not to undeceive his relatives till he had
seen how his nephew "framed" that is the
word he used an expressive Yorkshire word
that means the fitting and shaping of a man
for a place new to him.
Near Mergatroyd was a spring of water called
"California." It had its origin thus. The owner
of a field fancied there was coal beneath the
surface, and he hired borers, who perforated
tho several strata that underlay his turf till
they were stopped by the uprush of water, that
played HKe a fountain for many months, and
remained as a permanent spring. The owner
bad made great boast of tho fortune he was go
ing to make out of the coal mine, and when he
came to nothing 1ut water ,the people nick
named the spring California. But it was no
ordinary spring; the water was so charged with
gas that when a lighted match was held to it
flames flashed and flickered about it The
water was so soft as to be in great request for
teamaking. "Eh," said an old woman, "Call
f orney water be seah (so) good, tha wants nowt
but an owd kettle and t'water to mak' th' best
o' tea."
It seemed to Jeremiah as if he had tapped a
California, a fountain of sweet, flashing
abounding affection. He was moved, flattered
by it and greatly surprised, for it was wholly
unanticipated. He was ignorant what he had
doncto occasion it.
But indeed, a great deal of genuine regard
and attachment grows Imperceptibly about a
man who has lived for a long time in a place
without making any demands on his neighbors,
has been just, reliable and blameless in life.
AH this latent regard now manifested itself,
Philip was still in the house of his uncle a
week after the reappearance of the latter.
Jeremiah had not been able to go through the
accounts and examine the condition of the bus
iness as thoroughly as he had intended. Ho
had been distracted by visitors, and his mind
unsettled by absence and by astonishment and
gratification at the manifestation of good-will
provoked by bis return. He had said nothing
more to Philip abont leaving; Philip, however,
had been in the little town inquiring for lodg
ings, but could find nothing that would suit In
that small place it was not usual for furnished
lodgings to bo let. There was indeed a set ot
rooms over the baker's, but they were
overrun by cockroaches; at the chemist's
were two vacant rooms, but no ac
commodations for the nurse and baby. Then
he had to face another difficulty: the nurse was
young and good looking, and there was no say
ing what scandal might be aroused by his mi
grating to lodgings with this nurse, if his wife
did not return to him. At tho draper's there
were rooms, but they had a north aspect and
looked cold and damp. There was a cottage,
unfurnished, he might take, but that adjoined
a shoddy mill, and the atmosphere was clouded
with "devil's dust," injurious to the lungs.
Moreover, bow could he purchase furniture
when he had no money? His condition was un
certain, his prospects undefined and be shrank
from speaking to his uncle about them till
Jeremiah had made his thorough investigation
of the state of the business and had matured
his opinion on Philip's management of it Per
haps, also, Jeremiah had not as yet decided on
what was to be done with regard to his nephew
and it would bo injudicious to press him to a
decision. In the meantime the uncertainty was
distressing to Philip.
He read his wife's letters with mingled feel
ings. He could decide nothing with respect to
her till his own future was made clear to him.
He still harbored his resentment against the
imposition, and, though be now no longer
thought that Salome had been privy to it, he
could not surmount the repugnance evoked by
the fact of being related to that unprincipled
rogue, Schofield. He was alive to the danger
of such an alliance. Schofield was not the man
Encouraging Facts and Gossip Aboat the
Business Sitnation.
Manager Chaplin, of the Pittsburg Clear
ing House, is an optimist from head to heel.
He can see rainbows where less hopeful eyes
discern only clouds. He has no love ior
growlers, and occasionally takes pains to let
them know it. "When I interrogated him
yesterday as to the condition of business, he
smiled blandly and said:
"It's all right. Some people say it's dead,
but if so, the corpse is remarkably well
preserved. The clearings this week are al
most $2,000,000 greater than for the correspond
ing time last year. This tells the whole story."
But this was not the only evidence gathered
showing that business is on the road to recov
ery. The week was neither one of the bestnor
one of the worst: it was abont betwixt and be
tween, which was as much as could be expected
under the ciroumstances. In nearly every de
partment of trade the improvement over the
previous week was patent to even the most
careless observer. Stocks were generally firm,
with sales ot 6,773 shares. Petroleum was steady
and dull. A large business was done in mort
gages, the number recorded being 161, for $373,
251. Real estate was ratberquiet, but tbe busi
ness transacted was quite respectable in vol
nme. Some of the deals were for large amounts.
Jobbers rcporteda liberal movement of season
able goods. The week closed with a good feel
ing all round.
From the unfavorable condition of the
weather and other causes not necessary to
mention, it was feared that tbe number of
building permits would make a sorry showing.
This was not the case, however, as 43 woro
issued for an aggregate amount of S71.2S0. The
'number issued for the month of May was 361,
ana tne estimated cost was ;m.4ii so iar tnis
year the gam over 188S is 65 permits and $290,000.
1 asked a contractor if ho thought the estimate,
made early in tbe season, of 4.000 bouses for
the year, would be made good. He said: "I
begin to think we will have to come down a peg
or two. The flood has had a bad effect Lum
ber is higher. This will discourage many who
had thought of building. The weather is also
against us. I think if tbe end of tbe year sees
3,000 wo should be satisfied."
No large business concern can be success
fully carried on without strict discipline among
the employes. This has contributed in no
small degree to tbe success and popularity of
the Pennsylvania Railroad. Just before the
heavy rain set in Friday night I saw a passen
ger tram roll up to tbe Union depot hut it did
not stop under the shed. Tbe rear brakeman
took his station and stood there until the storm
was over. He had neither overcoat nor um
brella. When bis duty had been discharged,
he walked into the station looking as if he had
just been fished from the river.
"Why didn't you seek shelter!" he was
"Because my place was at the train, storm or
no storm," was his reply.
Devotion to duty, such as this, 13 a conspicu
ous trait of the American character, and heroes
are not so scarce as they seem.
La Norla monopolized nearly all tbe business'
at the stock call Saturday, contributing 300 of
the 315 shares sold. It was a trifle stronger. A
broker remarked that be believed this stock
was being held up to enable certain gentlemen
to.unload. Another broker said it had not yet
reached tbe top, and if tho mill panned out as
expected there would be a bom in it before
long. These antagonistic views were not calcu
lated to throw much light on the situation.

to neglect the advantages to be gained by
having a son-in-law a man of character, posi
tion and substance. If Philip sank to being a
mere clerk the fellow would be an annnoyance
no more, but as he prospered, and in proportion
ashe made his way, gained the respect of bis
fellow men, and enlarged his means, so would
bis difficulties with Schofield increase. The
fellow would be a nuisance to him continually.
If Schofield made himself amenable to the law,
then his own connection with the daughter of
a man in prison or a convict, would be a re
proach and a scandal. If the scoundrel were
at large, he wonldbe an annoyance from which
he never could hope to shake himself free.
The letters from his wife did not please him.
Clearly Janet was not so ill as had been repre
sented to him; no so ill as to require her sister
there, especially as she had three nieces with
her. He was uncomfortable without his wife
he was uncomfortable because bis future was
vague, and he associated the annoyance this
caused him with her absence, ugconsciously, to
her account He did not considff what his own
conduct had been, and how he bad almost
driven her from the bouse and from her child,
and he found fault with her for deserting him
and the babe so readily on a frivolous cause.
No doubt Salome was enjoying herself ; she
was so full of admiration over the scenery, the
flowers, so struck with the variety of life she
met with. What did she think of his situation
without certain prospects? A nice party they
formed at Andermatt five ladies and Janet
was well enough to enjoy excursions. The ef
forts Salome made to interest him annoyed
him. He did not want to be interested; he re
sented her taking Interest in what she saw.
And then, what about this stranger, this
American lady, traveling by herself, with her
pretty becoming dresses, who had attached her
self to the party? Who was she? What were
her belongings? What her character? Salome
had no right to form a friendship, hardly an
acquaintance, without first consulting him.
It was very doubtful whether a lady, young
and beautiful, who traveled alone, was a desir
able person to know; it was by no means un
likely that Salome would find it out when too
late that she had associated herself, and
drawn the three Labarte girls into acquaint
anceship with a woman who ought to be kept at
a distance. Ladies traveling alone should in
variably bo regarded with suspicion. Ladles
never onght be alone unmarried ones, he added
hastily, remembering that he had allowed his
own wife to make the journey to Andermatt
unprotected. Unmarried ladies belong to fam
ilies, and travel with their mothers or aunts,
or some female relation; if quite youngMhey
go about In flocks with their governess. Single
ladies! He shook his bead. Salome really was
inconsiderate. She acted on impulse, without
thought If she had been forced into conver
sation with this person she should have main
tained her distance, and next day have con
tented herself with a bow, and the day after
have been short-sighted and not observed ber
at all. That was how he had behaved to male
acquaintances whom be did not think worth
cultivating as friends. Acquaintances can
always be dropped. The hand can be rigid
when grasped lor a shake, or can be twisting
an umbrella, or be behind the back, or in a
Salome should have considered in making
friends that there were others to be thought of
besides herself and that he radically disap
proved of association with persons unattached.
In the last of the three letters he had re
ceived from his wife a whole side had been
taken up with description of the single lady; it
was obvious that this person, whoever she was,
had set herself to gain influence over Salome,
while Salome, inexperienced, was unable to re
sist, and the purpose of the stranger she did
not divine. He became irritated at the ex
pressions used by his wife concerning this fas
cinating stranger. He entertained a growing
aversion for her. He was quite sure that she
was not a proper person for Salomo to associ
ate with.
He took up the letter, and, putting bis hands
behind bis back, paced the room. He was
thoroughly out of humor with himself and with
his wife, and as it never occurred to him that
he should vent his dissatisfaction on himself he
poure l it out on Salome.
A tap at the door, and following the tap in
came Jeremiah.
"Look here!" exclaimed the old man, as he
entered, "Here is a pretty kettle of fish. When
is Salome returning?"
"I do not know." answered Philip, stiffly.
"Have you heard from her?"
"I have."
"And she says nothing about returning?"
''Not a word. She seems to be enjovmgthe
Alpine air and scenery and making friends."
There was a tone of bitterness in these last
"But she must return." said Jeremiah.
"There is an upset of the whole bag of tricks.
What do you suppose has happened?"
"I have not the least idea."

"The cook had fits yesterday; that was why
the dimar was spoiled. She has fits again to
day, and there will be no dinner at all. She
has turned the servants out of tbe kitchen;
they are sitting on the kitchen stairs, and she
is storming within and I am convinced that
tbe fits are occasioned by brandy. I sent ber
some yesterday when I was told she was in con
vulsions, and that was adding fuel to fire. It is
a case of D. T., I fear. There is a black cat in
the kitchen or she thinks so, and is hunting it
throwing kettles and pots and pans at it has
smashed the windows and most of the crock
ery. The maids are frightened. I have sent
for the police; come with me. We must break
ooen the kitchen door, and seize and bind the
mad creature."
"It will put us in a somewhat ridiculous posi
tion," said Philip. "Had we not better wait
till the constable arrives, and hand ber over
formally to him."
"And in tho meantime allow her to smash
everything the kitchen contains. Come on."
The old man led the way, and Philip, first
plucking at his shirt collars to make sure tbey
were right, followed. They found, as Jeremiah
had said, (he servants on the steps that de
scended to the kitchen. The nurse was also
"How came you here?" asked Philip "and
baby, too! is this a place for him? Go back to
the nursery."
There was Indeed, an uproar In the kitchen.
The cook was as one mad, howling, cursing,
dashing about and destroying everything she
conld lay hand on like the German Polter
geist Jeremiah burst the door open, and the two
men entered.
Fortunately for Philip's dignity, the con
stable arrived at tbe same time, and tbe crazy
woman was without difficulty and disarrange
ment of Philip's collars, controlled and con
veyed to her bedroom.
As the party of men with their redfaced cap
tive ascended the steps from tho kitchen,
Philip caught sight of the nurse and baby
again. The former had disobeyed his orders;
it was perhaps too much to expect of ber to re
tire beyond sight of the drama enacted in the
kitchen. Philip gave her notice to leave.
"This would never have happened had Sa
lome been here." said Jeremiah. "And this is
not all: that woman has f onnd means of getting
to my cellar, and she has drunk herself into
this condition on my best whisky and brandy.
I have only just discovered the ravages she has
"I gave you up the cellar key."
"Yes: but she had another that fitted the
lock. I have had Mrs. Halgh bere, she has
opened my eyes to a thing or two. Are you
aware that the parlor maid and my traveler
Tomkins have been carrying on pretty fast?
She asked leave to go to a funeral on Sunday,
and went instead with Tomkins to Hollingworth
Lake. They were seen there together in a
"There is something WTong," said Philip,
"something I do not understand, about the
washing. I do not know whether any account
is kept of what goes to the wash, but I am
quite sure that tbe wash consumes as much as
it restores. I am reduced this Week to ono
pocket handkerchief. I cannot understand it
If I had had an influenza cold during the last
fortnight I could see some reason for my being
short this week, but conceive tbe awkwardness
of having only one. And then my socks. They
come back full of holes. I used not to wear
them into great chasms at least not since I
have been here; now they return a3 of old when
I was in furnished lodgings only fit to be em
ployed as floor cloths."
"I'll tell you what Philip. Salome must re
turn. 1 have been told by Mrs. Haigh that she
saw your nursemaid take tbe baby only yester
day to Browne's Buildings, and there is scarlet
fever in several of the cottages there."
"I have dismissed her."
"Who? Salome?"
"No. the nurse."
"But tbe mischief is done. She was there
yesterday. I do not know how many days It
takes for scarlet fever to incubate, but that
tbe child will have it I have very little doubt.
Why, she went into Rhodes' cottage where
they have had five down in it, and two of tnem
died. The rest are just in that condition of
healing when infection is most to be feared. I
beard this from Mrs Halgb."
"Good heavens!" Philip was frightened,
"Then," continued Jeremiah, "1 uo not sup
pose you are aware that Essie, the nursemaid,
has been wearing your wife's jewelry. She
bad the audacity to appear in church on Sun
day with a pretty Florentine mosaic brooch
that I gave Salome many years ago. Mrs.
Haigh saw it and recognized it
FbiliD fidceted in his chair. "I see." said he.
"I was wrong in not speaking or coughing the
other night or I might have sneezed, but I
lacked tbe moral courage. I felt unwell and
had a sick headache, and without saying any
thing to anyone 1 went to bed immediately aft
er dinner. I may have been in bed half an
hour and had dozed off when I was roused by
seeing a light I opened my eyes and observed
Essie at the dressing table. She bad come into
the room, not dreaming I was there, and sho
was trying on Salome's bonnets, I suppose the
best, putting her head on this side, then on
that and studying the effect at the glass. I did
not cough or sneeze, as I ought. I allowed her
to leave the room in ignorance that she had

she went off with the bonnet on her head,'or .
whether she replaced it I did npt announce) A
my presence because I was In bed, and I 1
thought that my situation was even less digni
fied than hers. But I see, now, I ought to have,
coughed or sneezed."
"Philip, we shall get Into an awful muddle .
unless Salome returns."
Philip said nothing.
"Now, look here," continued Jeremiah. I
have beard that you have been looking out for
lodgings. If you are going to live by yourself
that is tolerable; but if you choose to have
yonr wife with you you can live here and man
age tbe factory and tbe house for me. I am . iJ
tired of the drudgery of business, and I cannot
and will not be worried to death by servants.
I must have someone who will look after the
factory for me and someone who will attsnd to
the house."
"It would be best for Salome to return, but I
am not sure that she Is willing. She seems to
be enjoying herself vastly."
"Go after her: surprise her. Take tbe baby.
Spend a month there and then return. Bring
Janet back as well, if she cares to come."
"Perhaps that will be best," mused Philip.
"Things have become very uncomfortable)
wlthont her only ono pocket handkerchief,
and my socks only get to be taken as floor
cloths' 'Of course it is best. As soon as possible go,
and don't return without her."
