After Fhtlip had looked sufficiently Ions at
the caged eagle he went in search of the Cap
tain, and found him smoking in the verandah
of the hotel.
"Lambert," said he, "there's a deal of fnss
being made about this American lady, but who
Comes from Chicago," answered tbe Cap
tain. "I know that, but I want to know something
more concerning her."
The Captain shrugged his shoulders. "She's
good-looking, deucedly so."
That also I can see for ravself. HaTe you
made no inquiries about her?"
"IT why should IT'
Philip cjhled the head waiter to him.
"Here, "who is this American ladyT"
"Oh, from Chicago."
"Exactly, the Tisitors' book says as ranch. I

Some of the waiters had seen her elsewhere,
at other summer resorts, always well dressed.
Philip, after he had spent half an hour in In
quiries, discovered that no one knew more
about her than himself. He had neard nothing
to ber disadvantage, but also nothing to her ad
vantage. He might well have spared himself
tbe trouble of asking.
At table d' hote. Miss Durham sat at the long
table. Salome was disappointed. She thought
that she bad succeeded in completely patching
up the difference. Philip was indifferent. Just
as well that she should be elsewhere. She was
an occasion of dissension, a comet that threw
all the planetary world in his system out of
their perihelion. He made no bones about
saying as much. Salome looked sadly at him,
when Colonel Yeo took his seat beside Miss
Durham, and entered into ready converse with
her. She could not take her attention off ber
friend; she was uneasy for her, afraid wbat ad
vantage the crafty Colonel might take ot her
inexperience. But it was not long be
fore Phiftp heartily wished that Miss
Durham bad been in her place in their
circle, for conversation flagged without her. or
ceased to be general and disintegrated into
whisperings between the girls Labarte, and
confidences between Janet ind Lambert. Sa
lome was silantand Mrs. SIdebottom engrossed
n what she was eating. Philip spoke about
politics and found no listeners; be asked about
the excursions to be inaae from Andei matt,
and was referred to tbe guide book: he tried to
joke, but it fell dead. Finally he became silent
as bis wife and aunt, with a glum expression
on his inflexible face, and found himself as
well as Salome looking down the long table at
Miss Durham. The young lady as evidently
enjoying an animated and entertaining conver
sation with Colonel Yeo, whose face became
blotched as ho went into fits of laughter. She
was telling some droll anecdote, making some
satirical remark. Philip caught the eye of
Yeo turned upon him, and then the Colonel
put bis napkin to his month and exploded.
Philip's back became stiff. It offended him to
the marrow of his spine, through every articu
lation of that spinal column, to suppose him
self a topic for jest, a bntt of satire. He red
dened to his temples, and finding that be had
se-ted himself on the skirts of his coat, stood
up, divided them and sat down again, pulled
up his collars and asked how many more
courses they were required to eat.
A Totalo Glut Knocked Bottom Out
of Markets Kew Apples
Pittsburg Not the Best Markets for Pro
vision Trade.
Office or Pittsburg Dispatch,'!
Saturday. July 7, 1SS9. j
In the lines of country produce the marked
features of trade tbe past week were tbe extra
quantities of stuff on tbe markets. Potatoes
came in from the sunny South in such
abundance as to demoralize trade. In the
fore part of the week there was a drop ot $1
per barrel from prices that afforded scarcely
any margin of profit to the producer. The
potato speculator found few pickings in this
week's deals. One was beard of who paid SI 40
per barrel, but could get no better offer than
80c per barrel. The price of potatoes from
commission men to-day is SI 25 to $1 50. The
freight and commission absorbs 90c of this,
leaving little or nothing to producer and ship
per. A Liberty street commission man said:
"We are handling lots of stuff, but profits are
reduced to a minimum."
Growers of vegetables down in Tennessee in
the nast two or three years have wakened up
to tbe fact that Pittsburg is a good distributing
point and we are now getting stuff from that
State direct which in former years came
through Cincinnati, St Louis or Chicago pro
duce firms. From one town in Tennessee 14
carloads of stiawberries were shipped in May,
one half of which were consigned to a Boston
house,the other half to Pittsburg. Last year tbe
strawberries of that town were shipped to Chi
cagn.and the profit to the shipper was GOc a crate.
This ear tbe shipper netted 1 SO per crate,
and a Tennessee paper congratulates growers
in a recent number upon the bapoy change
from Chicago to Pittsburg as a point for con
signment of fruit." New apples are coming in
freely from tbe South, and in another week
will be as abundant as potatoes have been for
a week past
In the line of cereals there has been a great
scarcity or corn and oats all the week, and a
growing firmness in flour.
Our quotations will show that corn and oats
have taken a number of upward steps during
the week. We do not change our quotations
on flour, as wholesale grocers still prefer to
fell at these figures, but the price which tbe
jobber has now to pay Is 70c above the lowest
loint touched In June.
The jobbers who are carrying heavy stocks
may for a little longer sell at our quotations,
bat could not now lay in stock at tbe prices for
mcn uiey sen.
A drop in package coffee of c at the begin
ning of the week has been justified by events.
Options are a shade stronger at the close of
the week.
Sugars keep advancing, and the week began
and ended with markets decidedly strong.
Pittsburg pork packers report an active trade
for the week and volume up to last week, not
withstanding the holiday thrown in. Prices,
however, are not at all satisfactory. A leading
provision dealer said: "Hams and common lard
are sold as low here as in Chicago. We get a
little better prices for sugar-curea shoulders
than Chicago provision dealers get but with
this exception the Western metropolis has
furnished tbe best provision market all this
season. Wo are selling plenty of hams and
dried beef, bnt margins are very close."
Wool Market.
St. Louis The local wool market is quieter
and easier in spite ot the glowing reports sent
out from the bast where the stock of new wool
is accumulating and holders desirous to sell;
Meml Markets.
sJs nominal. Exchange closed.
"Oh! we have come to the chicken and salad,
and that is always the last;" said Salome.
"I am glad to hear it I never less enjoyed a
meal before not even" be remembered the
dinner alone at Mergatroyd, with the parlor
maid behind his back observing his mole. He
did not finish his sentence; he did not consider
it judicious to let his wife know how much he
had missed her.
It was not pleasant to be at enmity with a
person who by jibe and joke could make him
seem ridiculous, even in such eyes as those ot
Beaple Yeo. It would be advisable to come to
some agreement, a truce, if not a permanent
peace, with this woman.
Presently Philip rose and walked down the
salle. Several of those who bad dined had
gone, some remained shelling almonds, picking
out the least uninteresting of tbe sugar-topped"
biscuits and make-believe maccaroons. that
constituted the' dessert. He stepped to Miss
Durham, and said, with an attempt to be ami
able and courteous: "We are meditating a ram
ble this afternoon. Miss Durham, to some lake
not far distant; and I am exponent of the unani
mous sentiment of our table, when I say that
the excursion will lose its main charm unless
you will afford us tbe pleasure of your
He bad been followed by the Labarte girls,
ana they now put in their voices, and then Mrs.
Sidehottom joined; she came to back up the
request. It was not possible for tbe American
girl to refuse. The Captain and Janet had not
united In the request, but they had attention
for none but each other, and Salome had not
risen and united in the fugue, for a reason un
accountable to herself a sudden doubt
whether she had acted wisely in Dressing the
lady to stay after she had resolved to go, and
yet she could give to herself no grounds for
this doubt.
A couple of hours later the party left the
hotel. It was thought advisable that Janet
should be taken to the summit of the pass in a
small low carriage; she could walk home
easily, down hill. Into the carriage was har
nessed an ungroomed chestnut cob, that had a
white or straw colored talLand like colored
patches of hair about tbe hocks. It had the
general appearance of having been frost bitten
In early youth, or fed on stimulants which had
interfered with its growth and deprived it of
all after energy. The creature crawled up the
long zigzag that leads from Andermatt to the
Ober Alp. and the driver walked ty its head,
ill disposed to encourage It to exertion. The
Captain paced by tbe side of the carriage,
equally undesirons that the step should be
quickened, for be had no wish to overheat
himself time was mado for man, not man for
time and he had an agreeable companion
with whom ho conversed.
Mrs. SIdebottom engaged the Labarte girls,
who inconsiderate creatures wanted to walk
beside their Aunt Janet, and take part in the
conversation with tbe Captain. Mrs. SIdebot
tom particularly wished that her son should be
left undisturbed. As an oriental potentate is
attended by a slave waving a fan of feathers to
drive away from his august presence the tor
menting flies, so did the mother act on this oc
casion for her son she fanned away the ob
trusive Labarte girls. When she found they
were within earshot of tbe carriage. ".Now,"
said she, "I am sure this is a short cut across
the sward. You arc young, and 1 am no longer
quite a girl. Let us see whether you by taking
the steep cross cut, or I, by walking at a good
pace along the road, will reach tbe crucifix
first." By this ruse she got the three girls well
ahead of the conveyance; but Claudlne found a
patch of bluo gentianella, and wanted to dig
tbe bunch up. "No, no," advised Mrs. Side
bottom, "not in going out on your return
homeward; then you will not have the roots to
carry so far, and the flowers will be less faded."
The Week's Business Show a Lane Gain
Over Same Time Last Year.
Considering there was an "off day," the
yolume of business transacted in Pittsburg
last week was large over $600,000 ahead of
the corresponding time last year. This
should be satisfactory to reasonable people.
There was no particular change in values,
which, however, developed a hardening
tendency in anticipation of an early demand
for fall goods.
There was a larger movement in local se
curities thi-n for some time, and prices were
well maintained the closing figures on sev
eral of the favorites being from one to three
fioints higher tban the opening. The out
ook is good for a continued active firm mar
ket. The total sales, so far as reported, were
2.800 shares, of which Philadelphia Gas and
Electric contributed one-third.
Petroleum was dull, with few and small fluc
tuations. The new deal has so far failed to
catch the ontside interest Many dealers ex
pressed tbemselves lu favor of returning to the
old plan.
Real estate was rather more quiet than usual,
but tbe transactions outnumbered by nearly 50
per cent those of tbe same time last year. Tbe
number ot deeds recorded was 190, represent
ing $3o5.907.
Tbe business in mortgages showed a slight
falling off as compared with the average run.
The nrmber officially reported was 217, aggre
gating $303,835. Several for large amounts
were placed but not settled, and are not in
cluded In tbe count About 40 per cent were
for purchase money. The largest was for
There was a buoyant feeling among all
classes of business men. wbo, while entirely
satisfied with the summer trade, are looking
forward to an unusually busy season next fall,
and are already making preparations for it
The total sales stocks at New York Saturday

There was reason lathis advice, and Claudlne
followed it.
Presently Amelle, the second, exclaimed,
"But we are just in advance of Aunt Janet.
Let us stay for her."
"Yes. we will," agreed Felicite. the third;
"Claudlne can go on with Madame."
"We will all stay," said Mrs. Sidobottom.
"Now, Amelle, I have seen your sketches, and
you have your book with you. Is not that a
superb view up tbe gorge, to tbe right, 1 do
not know the name ot tbe mountain at the
head. What a picture It would make. And
finished off with a spirit you throw into a draw
ing! See, there is a chalet and some goats for
"Ceil vrai! I will draw it." So Amelle sat
on a rock and got her materials, and tbe sisters
sat by her talking and advising what was to be
left in and what was to be left out of the
sketch. Meanwhile the conveyance containing
Janet crawled by. The picture was still Incom
plete, and the little party was thrown a long
way in tbe rear by this detention.
To anyone observing the zig-zag road up
the Obelrap Pass from a distance, the party
would not have been supposed to , possess
homogeneity. At starting it was led by
three Philip, 8alome, T.d the American
lady: but after tbe first stage of tbe ascent Sa
lome fell back, then, little by little, the other
two quickened their pace till they had com
pletely distanced the rest. At a lower stage of
tbe inclined road, ascending at even pace, was
Salome, alone. At about an equal distance be
low, on another stage of the zigzag, was tbe
carriage with Janet and the Captain, and tbe
driver, of whom no account was taken; and
sometimes ahead of the carriage, sometimes be
hind, making rushes, then halts, like a covey
of doves followed by a bawk, was the little clus
ter of girls with Mrs. SIdebottom. From a dis
tance at one moment the three girls seemed to
be flying before tbe elder lady armed with a
parasol, which she swungabout her bead, then
they seemed to cower on tbe ground into the
herbage as birds beneath a swooping falcon.
The reason why Salome was alone must be
given. Before starting on the excursion, Philip
said to bis wife, "Let me have a minute alono
with that person. I'll make some sort of apol
ogy, and set all to rights."
Accordingly Salome had dropped back where
tbe road made its first twist. But this does
not explain why she remained alone for more
than the minute. That this may be under
stood, it will be necessary to follow the conver
sation that passed between Philip and "that
"My wife has found a pink," said Philip;
"she is fond of flowers." Then, as Miss Dur
ham said nothing, he added, "I afforded you
some amusement at dinner."
"Apparently. It is not pleasant to be an
object of criticism. If you desired to pnnlsh
me for my indiscretion, you must be satisfied.
You made me very uncomfortable."
"AmnsementT Oh! do you mean when
Colonel Yeo. laughed and looked at youT I saw
you turn red."
"Enough to make a man turn red, when
aimed at by the bow and arrow of female lips
and tongue."
"You are quite mistaken," said Miss Durham,
laughing. "I was not shooting any poisoned
arrow. Do you desire to know what I saidT"
"Interest me it must, as 1 was tbe object of
the arrow, even if tipped with honey."
"Very well, you shall know. I had seen you
looking at the eagle in his cage. And I said to
Colonel Yeo that tbe eagle reminded me of
Philip winced. He remembered bis own esti
mate of that wretched bird.
"And pray," said he, "why am I like the

neither was designed by nature. Do you sup
pose the eagle looks tbe draggled, disconsolate
bird he does now when on wing, soaring over
tbe glaciers? Were bis wings made that they
might droop and drop their crushed feathers?
That stern eye, that it should stare at iron bars,
at inquisitive faces peering between tbem?
Now. come, be open; make me your confessor.
Have you never had yearnings for something
nobler, freer, than to be behind the bars of a
counting house, and condemned to the perpet

Philip considered. Yes, he had wished for a
less monotonous life. He bad often desired to

"You time is all barred," continued Miss Dur
ham, "and the music of your lite must be .in
common time. No elasticity, no initiative, all
Is barred and measured. Tell me something
about yourself."
"I I" This was a daring question to address
to one so reserved as Philip. "I have had
nothing occur In my life that could interest
"Because It has been spent In a cage. I know
it has. I can see the jail look in your face, in
your back, in the way you wear your hair, in
your coat, in your every action, and look, and
tone of voice."
"This is not complimentary."
"It is true. But you were not made to be a
jailbird. No one is; onlysome get caught early
and are put behind bars, and see tbe world, and
know It, only through bars; the wind blows In
on tbem only between bars, and the sun Is cut
and chopped up to them by bars and cross-bars,
and all they know of the herbs and flowers are
the scraps of chlckweed and plantain, drooping
and dying, that are suspended to their cage
bars for them to peck at. I know exactly
what they come to look like who have been en.
caged all their lives; they get bald on the poll
and stiff in their movements, and set in their
back, and dull of eye, and narrow of mind."
"You have" you not been a cage bird?" asked
Philip with some animation.
"Oh, no, not L I have kept outside the bars.
I have been too fond of my liberty to venture
behind them." ,
"What do you mean by bars?" asked Philip,
with some gravity in bis tone.
"Bars? There are bars of all sorts social,
religious, conventional but there! I shock
yon; you have lived to long behind them, that
you think the bars form the circumference of
the world, and that existence is impossible, or
improper outside of them."
"Beyond some none are at liberty to step.
They are essential."
"I am not talking of the natural, but of the
artificial restraints which cramp life. Have
you any Bohemian blood in your"
"Wild blood. I have. I confess It. A drop,
a little drop, of fiery African blood. You In
England have your class distinctions, but they
are as nothing beside our American separations
between white and black. With you a blot on
the escutcheon by a mesalliance is nothing;
with us it is ineradicable. There is a bar sin
ister cast over my shield and shutting me out
from the esteem of and association with those
whose blood Is pure. Purel It may be mud

enough of swindlers and renegades from jus

an eighth part of drop, damns me. I do not
care. I thank that spot of taint It has liber
ated me from conventional bonds, and I can
live as I like, and see the sun eye to eye with
out intervening bars."
Philip bad winced when she spoke about tbe
coexistence of Dure blood with that of swin
dlers and renegades. He stopped and looked

several folds of the road.
"What?" asked Miss Durham, mockingly,
"looking for one of your bars?"
Philip turred and walked on with her. They
had reached the summit, and the ground be
fore them was level. On this track of level
mossy moor lay the lake of deep crystal water.
In which floated masses of snow or Ice, that bad
slldden lrom the mountain on tbe opposite
side. Hardly a tree grew here, on this neck,
exposed to furious currents of wind.
"May I take your arm?" asked Miss Durham.
"I am heated and tired with this long climb?"
Philip offered .her the support she de
manded. "I suppose,' she said, "that you have not as
sociated much with any but those who are cage
He shook his head and colored slightly.
"Do you know what I am?'' she asked ab
ruptly, and turned and looked at him, loosing
her band from bis arm,

struggled to conceal.
"It is so; ana I am here in this clear air that

She put her hand through his arm again.
"Yes, chained, imprisoned eagle, I am a free
singing-bird. What do you say to that?"
What could h say? He was astonished, ex
cited, bewildered. He felt the intoxication
which falls on an evangelical preacher wben he
mounts the platform to preach In a music hall.
He was frightened and pleased; his decorum
shaken to its foundation, and cracking on all
"What do you say to that?" she asked, and
looked full in his eyes, and her splendid orbs
shot light and fire into his heart and sent tbe
flames leaping through his veins. He heaved a
long breath.
"Yes," she said, "you suffocate behind bars."
Then she burst into a merry peal of laughter,
and Philip Involuntarily laughed also, but not
"There Is the restaurant," said Miss Durham,
"and being painted within and without, im
possible torus to enter. What say yen to
walking on to the head of the lake? I want to
look over the col, and see the mountains of the
Rhine Valley above DIssentls."
Philip hesitated, and again looked back.
"I see." said Miss Durham; "you are afraid
of stepping out of your cage."
"Not at all," answered Philip flushing. "I
am prepared to go to the end of this trough In
tbe mountains with you, but I greatly doubt
seeing much from the further end."
"Well if we see nothing, we can talk. Have
you looked about you much since we began
the ascent?"
"The time has flown," said Philip, looking at
his watch. "It seems to me but a few minutes
Tbe long dreary valley or basin In which lay
the lake was apparently closed at the end by a
hill surmounted by a cross or flagstaff. The
road ran along tbe north side of the lake, with
out a tree to shade It The party behind, when
tbey came to the restaurant could not fall to
see them if they continned along the road, and
might follow, or await them there.
Philip walked on. but no longer gave Arte
misia Durham his arm. He saw far away in
the rear Mrs. SIdebottom signaling with her
parasol, but whether to him or to the Labarte
girls, who were dispersed in tbe morass at the
end of the lake, picking butterwort soldanella
and primula, he could not telL
His eyes were on the ground. He was think
ing of his companion, what a strange life hers
must be, incomprehensible to him. He felt
how, if he were thrown Into It he would not
know how to strike out and hold his chin above
water. At the same time his heart beat fast
with a wild, vain desire for a freer life than
that of commerce.
The restraints to which he had been sub
jected bad compressed and shaped him, as the
Chinese lady's shoe compresses and shapes her
foot but the pressure had been painful; it had
marked him, but the marks were ever sensi
tive. Tbe ancient robe of tbe Carmelite
fathers was of white wool, barred with black,
and they pretended tbat they derived this
habit from the mantle of Elijah, which he had
dropped as he was being carried up to heaven,
and tbe mantle bad touched as it fell the spokes
,of the cbariot ot Are In which he ascended and
was scorched In stripes. Philip, and many an
other successful man of business wbo has been
exalted to a position of comfort and warmth,
has te inner garment of his soul charred by
tbe wheels of the chariot in which he has
mounted. Philip felt his own awkwardness,his
want of ease in otber society than tbat narrow
circle in which he had turned, his inability to
move with that freedom and confidence which
characterizes those born and reared In gener
ous society. Even with this girl this Bohe
mian he was as one walking and talking, with
chains to his feet and a gag to his tongue. She
was right: he was born to beat easo every
where, to be aole everywhere to walk upright
and to look around him; he had been put in a
cramped position," tied hand and foot and bis
headset in such a vice as photographers em
ploy to give what they consider support and
steadiness, and he was distorted, stiffened, con
tracted. Had his life been happy? He had

A Batch of Contradictory European Rumors)
Paralyzes the Wheat Market Corn
and Oats Featureless Hoe
Products Dull and Gen
erally Weak.
Chicago The session ofthe Board of Trade
to-day was dull from the opening to the close.
The foreign news concerning wheat was rather
mixed: the domestic news was almost uni
formly bullish. One member had a cable from
St Petersburg saying that the drought in North
Russia continued, and that reports from South
Russia were also unfavorable. Another had
estimates that tbe wheat yield of Europe, in
cluding the United Kingdom, would be 100,000,
000 bushels larger than last year, and at least
three weeks early. Paris quotations were
higher; Liverpool markets firm.
The weather was dry and hot both in the win
ter and spring wheat districts, and was there
fore a bearish influence in one direction and a
bullish influence in the other. Minneapolis
millers were reported as buying new No. 2 red
winter wheat in St Louis for milling. North
western traders were also buying In tbe specu
lative market here. An operator started a
bulge in prices early by picking up a few small
lots of July. This future opened at 82c,
geld up to 83c and closed at 82,7-c December
opened at 79c, and, after selling at 79c,
bulged to SOiie. At the advance Hutchinson
was selling December freely, and It reacted to
Tbe corn pit was almost deserted all tbe
morning. Trading was light September, the
active future, opened at 3535c sold at
3535Jc and closed at the latter figure.
Oats were dull and an easy feeling prevailed.
Receiving bouses sold September moderately
at2222c: closed at 22c
Not over 3,000 barrels of pork were traded on
'Change to-day. Nevertheless, there was a 10c
break In prices. Lard and ribs were much
more active and both were weaker. The trade
in these, however, was of small proportions.
Offerings, while light, were more than the trade
could absorb.
Tbe little speculative interest developed was
centered in September,whlch sold from Sll 67
early down to 111 55 for pork; from $8 50 to
J6 42K for lard and from J3 92 down to $5.85
for short ribs. Lard and short ribs for the same
delivery closed at inside prices and pork at
$11 57W. Other months were quiet.
The leading futures ranged as follows:

never accounted it so It had been formal at

factory. Was man made and launched into
life to be a piece of clockwork? Ho bad
thought, acted, lived an automaton lite, and
taken his pleasure in measuring glasses, never

"Have you had a happy existence?" he
asked, thoughtfully.
"Oh yes, the birds are happy; all nature is
happy so long as it is free. It is In the cage
that the bird mopes, and In the pot that the
plant sickens."
Had Philip looked In her face be would have
seen a strange expression of triumph pass over
it She had carried ber first pout and gained
bis Interest
"Here," she said, "Is a large rock above tbe
water; let us sit on it and I will tell you about
myself. You had no confidence in ma and
would not give me your story. I will return
good for evil and show you my past I agree
with you, there will be no view of the moun

She took a seat on a broad boulder that bad
fallen from the mountains, and hung fast
wedged on one side, disengaged on the otber,
over the crystal water that, stirred by the light
wind, lapped its supports. Looking into tbe
clear flood beneath, they could see the char
darting about, enjoying the sun, that pene
trated the water and made It to them an ele
ment of diffused light
Artemisia pointed to them, and said, "Wbo
would not rather be one of these than a goldfish
in a glass bottle?"
Philip at once recalled the pond at Merga
troyd, with the hot water spurted into it from
the engine. In which the goldfish teemed, and
the globes in every cottage window supplied
with the unfortunate captives from this pond,
swimming round and round all day, all night
every year, seeing nothing, without an interest,
a zest in life. Such had bis career been: he, a
fish not a gold one, nor even a silver one till
recently, but quite a common brown flsh In a
common'glass receiver full of stale water, re
newed periodically, but always flat
He looked at the darting char with interest
"We are in tbe land of freedom." said Miss
Durham. "Then don't stand on the rock like a
semaphore. Sit down beside me, and let your
feet dangle over tbe water. Oh! as Folixenes
says, to be boy eternal! "
" 'With such a day to-morrow as to-day,' "
added Philip, completing tLi quotation, as he
seated himself on tbe rock.
How wonderfully brilliant the sun was at
that height So utterly unlike the rusty ball
that gave light at Mergatroyd, and there gave
it charily. How intense the blue of the sky
dark as tbe deep-belled gentian, not the washed
out cobalt ot an English heaven. And the air
was fresh; it made tbe heart dance and the
pulses throb faster, with a trip and a fandango
such as tbe blood never attains in our gray and
sober land.
At a few hundred yards' distance was a road
mender leisurely performing his task, repair
ing a track made by a stone that had leaped
from the cliffs above, torn up the road, and
then plunged into the lake. Far behind could
be seen Mrs. SIdebottom flourishing her para
sol and gathering the rest of tbe disconnected
party together before the restaurants
It was clear that she had decided they were
not to go further, but to rest at one of the
tables in tbe open air beside the lake, till it
pleased tbe two of the advanced party to re
turn. Had they been seen? Philip asked hlmselr.
Where be and Artemisia now sat tbey were
screened from observation from tbe tavern,
though not from the road-mender, who was
ahead on tbe way.
"I am not quite sure," said Philip, and he
fidgeted with his fingers as he said It "I think
I ought to be going back to the party to my
"To your wife, you mean. Why not say so?
No; you shall not go. There are plenty with
her, five in all, and I I have only yon."
A flutter and then a scalding rush or blood
through Philip's veins. "This is the land of
freedom," said Artemisia; "as you came over
the Lake ot Lucerne you saw Hutli, the sacred
spot where the three confederates swore to
shake off tbe chains that bound them and to be
free, and its freedom is the glory of Switzer
land now. Let this be Rutli. Break those con
ventional bonds that have tied you, and as a
pledge remain seated and listen to me. Re
member what I have told you I want to give
you a peep into my past life, and have your ad
vice." Philip made no more objection, but be
plucked little scraps of sedum that grew on
the stone and threw them into the water. Pres

Drycooda Market.
New York. July 7. The market was un
changed, though print cloths are firmly held at
4 cents, with a consequent firmer feeling on low
grade cottons, brown and bleached.
ently fish came to snap at them, and turned
awayin disgust, leaving them when they saw
tbev were not flies nor worms.
"My mother." said Miss Durham, "was a
German that Is how I can speak the language
with as much ease as English. She was mar
ried to my father shortly after her arrival in
America, and she never acquired the English
tongue perfectly; she always spoke It with an
accent and intonation that was foreign. But
though she did not acquire perfectly the lan
guage of tbe country of her adoption, she as
similated Its prejudices pretty easily, and held
tbem with that Intensity which characterizes,
in my experience, acquired preludices, espe
cially when unreasonable: My lather had in
him a couple of drops of dark blood, and al
though my mother thought nothing of that
when she took him.she speedily came to regard
it as an indelible stain. She threw it in his
teeth, she fretted over it and when I was born
did not regard me with the love a child has a
right to exact from Its mother. Tbe continual
quarrels and growing antipathy between my
parents led at length to their separation. My
father left and I believe is dead; I never saw
him after they parted. He may have married
again. I do not know, but I believe be Li dead.
He made no Inquiries after me and my mother,
to whom I was a burden and a reproach; she
looked about for, and secured another, a more
suitable partner, a German, working1 in a
factory. They bad children, fair
haired, moon-faced, thick-set and I was
alone amidst them, the drudge or enemy of all.
I bad a good voice, and I was made nurse to the
youngest children, and to still them I was ac
customed to sing to tbem. The eldest boy bad
a clear, good voice also, and him I liked best of
all my half-brothers and sisters. It was a great
amusement to us to follow brass bands, or
Italians with organs and monkeys; and wben
we saw how that these obtained money, my
brother Thomas and I agreed-together tbat we
would try our luck. One day It was the day
of tbe Declaration of Independence, wben
everyone was out and all enjoying themselves
Tom and 1 went Into tbe most frequented
avenue of our town, and began to sing. Car
riages with ladies and gentlemen passed, and
troops ot people in their best clothes, all lu
good humor and all seeking amusement We
began to sing "Ich welss nlcbt was soil es
beueuten," Tom taking a second. Some Ger
mans at once gathered about us, and threw
coppers into Tom's can. Presently a man
came up with a red beard and a violin. He
stood for a long time listening, and then. In
stead of giving us money, he asked where we
lived and wbat our parents were. I told bim,
and next, day he came to see my mother. He
was a musician, and he offered to buy me of
her, that he might teach me to sing and accom
pany him.
Philip's face grew gray, and the lines in it
became more marked- He no longer threw
bits of sedum at tbe flsh. He clutched the
rock with both hands.
"And wbat did your mother say I" he asked.
"She sold me for $75."
Philip shuddered. He turned and looked in
Artemisia's face to see, perhaps, if ber story
bad left its traces there.
"She wanted 1100, he offered $50. They came
to terms for $75."
Philip said nothing. He looked down into
the bottle-green depths of tbe lake, and for
some moments Artemisia was silent also.
Presently with a strange, forced voice, Philip
asked: "How old were you when this trans
action took place?"
-Still a child. 1 traveled about with the red
bearded man, and he taught me to slug, trained
me well, and at concerts made me sing, and I
cot treat annlanse. I liked that I was baDOier
with bim than at my mother's; I had no babies I
to carry a Dour, ana to nusu; none or me nouse
drudging to do. Besides, he was kind, and he
was an honorable man after his fashion. He
treated me as if I were bis daughter, ana took
immense pains to form me to be a public singer.
But always the burden of bis song was, "See
what you cost me, what trouble you give me.
Afterward, when you are-a finished artist you
must be engaged to me tor a set of years and
repay me for my pains." I had not a word
against tbat I was qnlte aware that I was in
debted to him, and I intended to show my grati
tude by doing as be required. So I grew up,
going about with htm, and be never allowed me
to be treated with impertinence by any man;
be always protected me, though not always in
the most heroic manner. Once, in California,
we were performing, he with his fiddle and X
singing, at a liquor bar, wben a half-tipsy gold
digger became offensively attentive to me. My
master made me leave the place with bim, and
he ran away with me to San Francisco. I
asked him wtjyT He said that he must do that
or shoot or be shot by that fellow, and he had
no wish for either. I remember sulking; I
would have liked to see them fight about me."
"How long did you remain with this man?"
"Till I was IS. and then, just as I was fit for
something better, and to earn more money, my
master spoiled his own game."
"How so?"
"He wanted to marry me. I reckon he
thought he could secure me best tbat way. If
be had not asked me, and himself pestered me
about this. I would have stayed with him and
let bim have a share a lion's share of my
earnings; but he would not leave me in peace
he spoiled his own game by that and set me
free. I left him."

"Oh! I have been Independent since then. I
have sung Jr. America, but I have met with
most success in Germany. I go about where x.
will. I have no master. learn enough to en
able me out of tba opera season to 50 to tbo
mountains or the seaside This is a dull spot,
and I would not have made so long a stay In It
bad It not been that I was ordered to the ele
vated air here, because I had suffered from a.
relaxed or overstrained organ. Now you know
mv story. What do you think of HT"
Philip was watching her face, and feeling as
if he received a shot in his heart every time sha
turned her splendid full eyes on him, and his
hands trembled as they held tbe stone. -Ever
since I left my red-bearded master I have been
alone alone in the world; I have had no one)
to whom to cling, no mind to which to go for
advice in times of donbt and distress. Alone
do vou know wbat It is to be alone?"
"Yes," said Philip; he let his head sink oat,
his breast, and looked down into the water.
He also bad spent a lonely youth, but in wbat
opposite circumstances.
Yon can have no Idea," she continued,
"bowl have longed, with agony of heart for
someone someone whose judgment I could,
trust whose mind was superior, whose experi
ence had been made in just those departments
of life to wblcb I am strange. I have longed
for such a one. whoral could regard as a verr
dear friend, and to whom I cCuld go in troubla
and perplexity. But I have no onel For all
these years I have been as much alone as the
man in the moon."
Philip put his band to bis collar. He tried to
straighten the points which bad become limp,
his hand shook so that he could do nothing- '
with them: he was being burnt up, consumed,
by her eyes which were on him as she spoke of
her desire to And a friend.
"Is it not stiange,"she said, "that I wbo have)
been preaching freedom should feel the need
of a bar not of many, but just one to bold by.
Do you know wbat it is to stand at the verge of
a precipice To stand on a spire top where,
tbere is sheer abyss on every side?. Can yon.
imagine the giddiness, tbe despair that comes
over one? My place is one surrounded by
precipices, dangers, everywhere; I see bauds
thrust out to give me the push to send me over,
but not one no, not one to hold me."
"You have mine," saia Philip, and laid his on
ber wrist She took his hand and pressed is
"Now,'' she continued, you can understand
wbat it must be to one on a dizzy peak, or apex
of a building, if thore be something a bar -even,
to which to hold. Then the abysses be-,
low can be gazed Into with Impunity. Holding
to that support, the dangers are no longer
dreadful, tbere is no more fear of fall out of
sheer desperation."
She let go Philip's hand, and stood up. ,,
"It is time to return to our party. Oh. what
a relietit has been to me to pour out my hears
to you. And now. In return, tell me about
Colonel Yeo."
Tbe sound of tbat name at once brought
Philip to his senses, tie rose to his feet and.
stepped into the road.
"I am sorry to be unable to tell you about
him, because I know little about bim. As I'
said before, we belong to different spheres."
They walked back together, talking of tba
weather and tbe mountains and flowers, and
found tbe rest at a table. The restaurant was
under repair, and no refreshments could be
obtained there.
"Welir said Mrs. SIdebottom, "you have,
kept us waiting a long time."
"We have been waiting for you," said Miss
Durham. "We thought you would come on to
tbe bead of the pass."
Philip caught Salome's eye and avoided it.
She looked wistfully, wonderfngly at him. Wbat
did be mean by at one minute treating the
American lady with coldness and rudeness, and,
then reversing bis behavior towards her abso
lutely and at once?
She took ber husband's arm as they walked
back to Andermatt. Philip was silent Ha..
thought about the story he had heard, and of
the loneliness of the poor girl who bad con
fided her history to bim.
"Wbat a long way this Is, dear," said Philip.
"It seems an age since we began the descent?' ,
( To be continued next Monday.)
One of the leading surgeons in the Army,
made tbe following characteristic remark:,
"Water kills more soldiers than bullets." His
meaning was, tbat soldiers wbo drank impure
water, died by disease in greater numbers thaa
thoso filled by bullets. The surgeon was right
Impure water, especially at this season. Is a ter-"
rible cause of sickness and death. But the pub-
lie say, wbat shall we do? There is but onesen
sible thing to do, and that is to purify tho '
water by mixing It with something tbat de
stroys all poison or disease-breeding germs, and
nothing does this like pure whiskey. But it
may be asked, where can I obtain para- -
whiskey? Professor Henry A. Mott says, "the
purity of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey is abso
lute, and should commend it to tbe highest
public favor." There are hundreds of families-
tbat are drinking water constantly, and are,
kept in perfect health Dy simply mixing a little ,
of Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey in each glass tbey
drink. It is a simple and a sure preventive of
Summer diseases and germ poisons, and is in
dorsed by tbe best people In the land.
