CHAPTER LI. AOAIK Hymex.
Is there in a'.l Europe a more delightful old
world town than Berne? There are grander
i minsters, tbere are more princely mansions,
but tbere is no lovelier situation tnan that oc
cupied by the dear old city perched on a rock
round which the green Aar forms a loop. May
the great cancer ol modern Berne that lies in
the west never creep over and destroy the
beauty of the ancient town, as the same hor
rible fungus growth is disfiguring and killing
the charm out of nearly every ancient city on
the continent. Even our common red brick
houses are better than the vulgar ash-grey.
Jerusalem artichoke colored edifices, all
staringly alike, and equally uninteresting, that
are growing op in long line and regular square
in Imperial Aix. in patrician Nurnberg. in
episcopal Spires, everywhere treading
on and trampling out beauty. In a
hundred J ears probably all the great
towns of the Middle Ages will have
been transmuted from gold to lead, and be ut
terly unattractive. When we see a ruin of a
church, an abbey, a castle, an old manor house,
even of a straw-thatcbed cottage, we are sad,
for we think what they were, beautiful in their
several ways, and all having lost much by be
coming ruins. But of these modern edifices
everything we can say is that we live in hope
that they may become ruins, for then only can
they conceivably touch the pioturcsque. In En
gland our builders have grasped the truth that
there is beauty in a broken skyline, and in al
ternation of light and shadow in a frontage;
but on the Continent, in France, Italy, Ger
many. Belgium, Switzerland, no architect has
risen above the idea of drawing parallel lines,
and of making of every street an elementary
study in perspective.
On a brilliant summer day, when the sun was
streaming down out of a perfectly blue sky
Into the long main street of Berne, alive with
marketers, three cabs drew up at the entrance
to the Hotel of the Wild Man, near the Clock
tower, and from them stepped, in the first
place, a young man in light grey trousers and
) lavender gloves, and then a young and pretty
lady wearing a bridal veil, a wedding dress ot
6llver grey. From the second carriage de
scended three bridesmaids no other than the
Labarte girls and from the third cab, Mrs.
Sldebottom and Fhllip and Salome.
Captain Pennycomequick had been married
at the embassy to Janet Baynes, and if the
day's weather gave a true presage of the new
life entered on, that of the Captain and his
bride was likely to be a happy one. But there
were surer grounds on which to base a forecast
of their hymeneal condition than the state of
the weather. The Captain was an amiable
man, whom nothing would rouse to opposition,
and Janet, as he and his mother had ascer
tained, was very comfortably off. She had or
w ould have about 500 a year, and GOO per annum
in France where they intended to live would
allow of their enjoying themselves as much as
if they had double that sum in England, not
necessarily because things were cheaper in
France, but because popular opinion allowed
retrenchment in a thousand of those trifles
which in England are the great outlets that let
money leak away.
There was to be no wedding tour; not because
Janet did not desire to escape with the Captain
from tne rest of the party, but because the
Labarte girls absolutely refused to be parted
with. They bad suddenly woke to the discov
ery that Mrs. Sidcbottom had hoodwinked
them, and carried them away out of sight and
bearing, while love-making was in progress; a
cil had been torn from before their eyes and
they saw through all her dodges and subter
fuges, and were in combined mutiny and angry
protest. Henceforth nothing would sever them
from their aunt. Agreatopportunltyhad been
FEATUEES OF TEADE.
HIDES SLOW, TALLOW MORE ACTIVE
Prospects Are Good for Tanners Stock
Well Cleaned Up.
PB0YISI0NS CLOSETRADE ACTITE
Office of Pittsbdko Dispatch, 1
Saturday. July 27. 1S89. J
In most trade lines the evidences of mid
summer's usual dullness are marked.
Country produce moved freely in the fore
part of the week, but for a couple of days
past has been quiet. One of our Liberty
street commission men, who has been, rusti
cating in Washington and Beaver counties
f oi a week or two past, gives as the result of
bis observations the following as his view of
the situation: "The fruit crop this season is
below the average through the territory which
looks upon Pittsburg as Its trade center. Last
season it was much above the average. Peaches
and early apples are almost a failure. Pears
and plums will not do much better. The best
advices I can get are to the effect that we are
to have a short apple crop throughout the
country this season.
"On the other band, everything in the line of
vegetables and field crops promises to be un
usually plenty in this section. Wheat has al
ready been safely gathered in larger quantity
than for many years past. Hay and oats are
nothing behind in the yield, and whilo corn had
a slow and unpromising start in the spring, it is
fast making up for lost time through the in
fluence of sunshine and timely showers, and all
signs now point to a season of plenty in the
line of substantias. Potatoes promise a larger
yield than I have ever known. They are so
thick in the ground that tbey are pushing the
"My observation leads me to the conclusion
that we are to have one of the most prolific
seasons on record in the lines most needed by
The market shows no new features the past
week. Said a leading dealer in bides: "Tbere
is no snap in our business, as there used to be,
but tanners are working up as much stock as
ever and we are buying and selling our usual
quantity. Local demand holds up better than
that from distant points. We sell a great deal to
New England, and the trade there has not been
up to standard of late. Our tome tanners are
putting the full quantity of raw material into
vats. Local demand for upper and calf skins
lias improved in the past weeK. Tallow has
taken an upward turn and is one-fourth cent
better than last week. The movement of tal
low has been better for a few days past than
for a couple of months."
A representative of one of our largest Alle
gheny tanneries reports improved demand for
harness leather since the 1st of July. Tanners
are sold up close to production, and while there
is no advance in prices and margins are close
the goods are moving out freely. The demand
for red sole leather 1 also reported good. Pros-
fiects are good for an active fall trade in
eatber lines, and a little stiffening up of prices
would bring a bonanza to our tanners, as they
never had better opportunities to secure stock
at low prices than for the past year."
A leading dealer in this line reports June and
July trade fully up to the corresponding
months of last year. Said he: "We do not
have dull seasons in our line as we used to
bave. In former years, the three summer
months were our slack months, but of late
years trade runs uniformly the year through.
The first month of tbls year was the best month
we ever had in our line, and trade has held up
remarkably well. We have no doubt that our
volume of trade for 1SSU will pass that of 1888,
with prices very much the same. The drop on
barnets leather since last year,makes no differ
ence on prico of a first-class set pi harness."
Prices are down to bedrock, out goods are
moving freely. The volume of trade this week
was full up to last.
A representative of one our leading pork
packing firms said to-day: "We are as busy
as bees shipping out goods and candled as
lost through the craft of that designing o'd
woman, a passion on a grand scale bad raged
so to speak, under their noses, and they had
not sniffed it. Their attention had been drawn
away and they had fceen unable to make those
interesting and instructive studies in the pro
cess of love-making to its grand climax in pro
posal, which might have been theirs and been
to them of incalculable interest and advantage,
but for that dreadful Sldebottom. Thus If they
could no longer take observations in the con
duct of lovers, they could examine, and store
up their observations on the conduct of newly
married people in the honeymoon. They clung
to their aunt, with their arms aboutier neck,
they lavished expressions of tenderness, they
protested that they could not and would not
be separated from hen and Janet foresaw that
a welding tour encumbered with the Labarte
girls would be worse than none at all, or one
with tho Labarte girls plus Mrs. Sldebottom,
and Salome and Philip to draw them off from
her occasionally. As the party drove from the
Embassy. Mrs. Sldebottom said to Philip: "By
the way, what do you think? Wonders will
never cease. Did you see the entries in the
marriage register previous to those made by
Lamb and Janet ?"
"I did not look." .
"I did ; and while you were arranging about
fees 1 made inquiries. Tbere was a marriage
at the Embassy this morning, before our affair.
An unheard-of thing in Berne to have two
English weddings the same day, so the chap
"I dare say."
"And guess who they were who entered the
I really cannot. I know none likely."
"But you do know, and are quite able to
I have not the energy, then."
'"Why, Colonel Yeo. that Is to say. Earl
Schofleld and our friend atAndennatt, Miss
"Xonsensel" Philip was startled,
"It is a fact. I suppose he really is an Earl,
for he was entered in the register as Earl Scho
field, and not as Colonel Beaple Yeo."
"But," Philip stammered, "it is not possible;
"Up has. I saw the entries. They were
married half an hour before we arrived."
"I will inquire about it,'! said Philip, "as
soon as ever the carriage stops. I will go back
to the Embassy. Something must be done. He
bad no right to marry."
Philip did not answer. He was excited and
"You cannot go till after the breakfast,"
said Mrs. Sldebottom, "and I suppose it is too
late to forbid the banns. I presume he is
really an Earl. He says that the attainder is
up. He truly is a distinguished-mannered
man, and I lice him. He looks a nobleman."
In the evening- the entire party visited the
Schanzll, a garden or restaurant on a com
manding hill above Berne, once occupied by a
fort from which it takes its name. From the
terrace is seen the range of the Oberland
mountains and, in the middle distance below,
is the town viewed in its full length with tow
ers and spires, and gabled roofs of chocolate
brown tile. Visitors are attended on by wait
resses in the pretty costume of the canton.
The evening was lovely, a meet conclusion to
so bright a day. The setting sun Illumined the
distant snows of the giants of the Oberland and
quivered in the windows of the city below.
Tbere are epoch-making scenes lu life, scenes
to which the memory recurs with unalloyed
pleasure, scenes which have been revelations
of beauty or majesty to the soul, and such a
scene is that from the Schanzll to the visitor
who is here for the first time. It is a double
mnch in the past few weeks as we have ever
done in the same time. To be sure margins
are very close, too close in some lines to be
comfortable, but the stuff Is moving. There is
more work and less gain than in other years,
but wo must take the bitter with the sweet."
A BOW OF PROMISE
Bufi Over the Business World, Encourag
ing the Hustlers.
There was a dearth of new features in
local business affairs last week, but the
volume of trade was large for the season,
and prices were well sustained. Evidences,
of an unusually large all movement con
tinue' to multiply. The failures in Phila
delphia and Richmond had no perceptible
effect here. Local securities were fairly
active and strong, La Noria and Philadel
phia Gas leading, the former with sales on
'Change of 3,250 shares and the latter of
2,767. The total sales oi stocks during the
week were 7,000, not counting office and
street transactions. Realty was rather qniet
in respect of sales, but tLe inquiry, princi
pally tor small houses and building lots, was
large and earnest. The number of deeds re
corded was 230, involving 5406,472. The
business in mortgages showed an improve
ment over that of the previous week, the
number placed and settled being 179, repre
senting $359,036. The largest was for $40,
000. ' Petroleum was spasmodic and bullish
at times, going above the dollar line and
tenaciously holding the advance. It was
dominated by bearish influences at the close.

The party of Pennycomequick Sldebottom
Labarte had settled itself to a marble-topped,
or. to be more exact, imitation marble-topped
table, and bad ordered the waitress to bring
the carte of wines and meats, when Claudine
Labarte nudged her aunt, and whispered
"Seel seel There tbey are, M. le Comte de
Schovllle, and our dear Artemlse. Shall we go
"On no account,' a'4 Mrs. Pennycome
quick, that is to say Janet, hastily. "Besides,"
she looked in the same direction, "they do not
seem to desire our interference."
AU looked at the little table, not far distant,
where sat Beaple Yeo, alias Schofleld, and bis
bride. The same day that had smiled on Lam
bert and Janet bad laughed over them, but
without sure augury of calm weather appar
ently; for already a post-nuptial storm had
broken loose. Beaple Yeo was leaning back in
his green-painted iron chair, very red and
blotched in face, and opposite him was Arte
misia whom he bad just made his wife, flushed
and talking rapidly.
It was clear that they were in angry alterca
tionabout what could not be learned for
their voices were drowned by the music from
the little theater in the grounds, in which the
overture to Boildleu's "Jean de Paris" was
Beaple Yeo curled his whisker round his
forefinger, and said something in reply to a
discharge of angry words from Artemisia;
whatever it was that he said, it so stung her
that, losing all self-control, she sprung to her
feet, leaned across the tsrble and struckfhim on
theche6k. Beaple lost his equilibrium and
went over with his chair on the gravel of the
terrace, to the great amusement of the Swiss
waitress and the scattered visitors at tables,
who bad noticed the altercation. Artemisia
was startled at her own violence, and ashamed:
she looked around and caught sight of the
friends she bad made at Andermatt. Her
color was so heightened with passion that it
could not become deeper with shame. In
stead of resuming her seat, without regarding
the humiliated man who was picking himself
up from the ground she came directly to the
table where the party of Pennycomequick
Sidebottom was seated, and with heaving
bosom and flashing eye, she stood before
Philip, and said in a tone broken with excite
ment: "You have helped to deceive me. It was
mean It was cruell You insulted me first of
all, and then you conspired with this this man
to play me a base trick. It was unworthy of a
gentleman, of an Englishman!"
"I beg your pardon," said Philip; "I do not
understand of what you are speaking. lam
quite unaware that I ever deceived you."
"You told me be was a nobleman an earl
and be is nothing of the kind."
"1 never said he was."
"I asked you, and you answered me that he
was an earl."
"I did no such thing. You misunderstood
me. You asked me whether he had any right
to the title of Earl of Schofleld, and I answered
I recall exactly my words that he was per
fectly justified in calling himself Earle Scho
fleld. That Is his name. Whether he has any
right to call himself Beaple Yeo, and to claim
to be a colonel is another matter on which I
entertain grave doubts; but I have none what
ever that his surname is Schofleld, and that his
Christian name is Earle."
Artemisia did not speak for a minute, she
was very angry and ashamed. When she had
in some measure recovered her self-possession,
she said bitterly, "You might have been more
"I refused to say much about the man. I had
my reasons. Moreover, I had no idea that the
matter was one of importance to you."
"I have sold myself to him. I have married
him this day, and only now have discovered
that X have been basely imposed upon."
"It is I I who have been taken in," shouted
Yeo, coming forward, pushing to the table, re
gardless ot the shrinking fear that appeared
in the faces of Salome and Janet, "It is I," he
repeated, "I that have been deceived. I was

Beaple uttered a low oath. wim..
"I have reason to know," continued Philip,
"that she is alive and you know that she is so,

is contrived a great wooden drum or wheel,
which, when turned, draws up the bucket.
Within the wheel stands a donkey, and it turns
it by stepping on as if walking, although, In
fact, the animal never advances an Inch, for,
as it moves, the wheel revolves under its feet.
One ass was known to perform this task for GO
years and another for 40 years. There is, un
less we guard against it. a tendency in our
selves to fall into the same routine tramping,
tiamplng on, over the same ground, in the
Msrsr unambitious manner, neither advancing
in our course, nor varying our horizon.
The acquaintance with Miss Durham had
wrought much good in Salomo as well as in
Philip. She had opened his eyes to see his Ig
norance of himself, and hers to ber ignorance
of the world. Salome's previous existence had
been within a narrow sphere. Shut off by pe
culiar circumstances from forming many ac
quaintances and having many friends, with
her horizon contracted almost within the walls
of the dingy and ugly red-brick house occupied
by the Pennyco mequlcks, uncle and nephew,
there can be no doubt but that she would in
time have settled Into a condition little super
ior to that of the Carisbrook ass. Her mind
would have trotted round and round iu the
same drum, and have accommodated itself

without a murmur or a thought of resistance
to it. In the course of years she would have
become almost as ordinary, as petty-minded as
tho deceased Mrs. Cusworth. But contactwith
Miss Durham had startled her out of this intel
lectual donkeydom. She saw In the American
girl a nvaclty of interest, a breadth of view, a
sparkle of intelligence, a receptivity for novel
Ideas, and a knowledge of the world and of the
things in the world the currents that circu
lated in it, the forces that propelled its- waves
and directed its tides, to which she had been
completely strange. And this stimulated In
her the desire to know. An American gentle
man once said to the writer, "We have no
prejudices, therefore we are always learning."
That is the secret of American success in every
branch ot activity. Self-conceit breeds plg
headedness, which raises mountains of preju
dice in our way, preventing us from seeing, as
the Germans have it, that there are men be
yond these mountains. Salome had noticed
that Miss Durham was able at ouce, and with
out effort, to arrest the Interest and enchain
the attention of Philip, and this she attributed
to the possession of qualities in the Chicago
girl which- were dormant, if not non-existent, in
herself. She had the shrewdness to per
ceive, and the good sense to acknowl
edge, her own ignorance and inability to take
part in conversation when it turned on politics,
natural history, on music, art or social ques
tion of the day. She could talk about recipes
for tapioca and semolina puddings, what pro
portion of water should be put.wlth milk for a
baby, the delinquencies of servants, the ser
mons she heard, the hymns she sang In church,
the cutting out and style of a dress, but not on
much beyond. Being humble minded she was
ready to take to heart what she recognized, and
she studied Miss Durham with attention, to as
certain the points in which she was accom
plished above her own acquirements.
When ale in bottle turns flat, housewives put
in a raisin, and this at once restores the efferv
escence. A prudent spouse should have a re
serve of raisins ever by her to pop into her hus
band's spirits whenever they are down. Some
wives, however, act on the reverse principle,
and perforate the corks, or knock off the necks
of all the sparkling liquors in the cellars of
their husbands' hearts They cannot endure to
see their good men cheery, sanguine, interest

pose. By a native perversity they seek to be
always at cross purposes, with their husbands,
and then grumble because their victims do not
smile and sing on the bed of nettles they have
strewn for them.
Bat Salome was not one who could degener
ate into such a mar-peace as this. In her lowly
mind she acknowledged her deficiencies, and
as she was endowed with energy and with ex
cellent abilities, she determined to .remedy
these shortcomings in herself, and had the ca
pacity to accomplish what she resolved.
The forethought of Jeremiah Pennycome
quick came to her aid opportunely. He also,
by his holiday of two years, bad been thrown
out of his drum, and bad found that there was
another and a brighter world than that of the
tread mill, tie had discovered, late in life, that

Man Is a lantern, and the vivid intellect
within is the light; by nature be is a lantern
with many sides, through all of which the
interior light streams, irradiating, and bring
ing into prominence a thousand surrounding
objects. But the pressure of modern life forces
htm to blacken over one after another of these
sides, and to line each with a refleotor, so as to
focus the light, and cast it through a single
lens. The stress of competition, the strain of the
social struggle combine to make of each man
a bull's-eye lantern. It Is true that the light
so concentrated illumines such objects as fall
within the radius of the beam with superior
brilliancy, but it leaves everything else in more
profound darkness. What is gained in
intensity is lost in the periphery. Jeremiah
had discovered this, and more than this. He
had learned by his own weakness to take a
more kindly Interest in others, to be pitiful

toward their Infirmities, patient with their
mistakes and even follies.
Having himself tottered irresolute on the
edge of the commission of an extreme act of
folly, from which he had been rescued solely by
a provldentiat intervention, he was able to
make allowances for lack of judgment cr weak
ness of resolve in others.
Jeremiah saw that Philip bad quarrelled
with Salome, and, without inquiring into the
occasion, he understood sufficient of their sev
eral characters to see that the best possible
means he could adopt for reconciling the dif
ference was to give them a holiday together
.abroad to let them travel on the continent for
some time, and mutually learn much of which
both were ignorant. He according wrote to
Philip not to return to Mergatroyd till Christ
mas. He wished, so he said, himself to spend
soma months at the mill in recovering the
threads of the business which had fallen from
his Angers, and to settle thoroughly down again
into the old groove of life.
EThis enabled Philip, who was liberally sup
plied with money, to visit Paris, Rome, Milan,
Venice, and return to England by the Rhine.
He and Salome made traveling acquaintances,
some agreeable, all Instructive; they saw France
staggering after its humiliation, and Germany
ruffling in its pride of victory; they shared
small adventures, and equally small jokes such
as spring up on all travel, and are as poor to
preserve as the flowers gathered. They saw
together picture galleries, beard together
operas, and together acquired a fund of ex
perience in life in many aspects unattainable
at Mergatroyd. The tour was. as Jeremiah de
signed, educative to both, and it broadened
and deepened their mutual sympathies. It
did more; It bound them togethers as chums in
the same school, where both read out of the
same books and summed on the same slate,
and wrote out the same moral sentences in
their copybooks. As they learned together,
thoy assisted each other; what escaped the eye
of one was perceived by the other, and each
took delight in drawing the attention ot the
other to what he or she observed.
They laid up together a fund of pleasant rec
ollections to which to revert when holiday was
over and work began; a shifting diorama of
scenes and incidents and personages that would
transform and beautify the interior of the
drum when they were recalled to the obligation
of treading it.
But not so only. When they returned to
work, it would be to hope and scheme tor such
another excursion together in the future,
though perhaps they could scarcely look for an
other ot the same duration. The retrospect
would enrich, and the prospect stimulate, and
banish tedium and the sense of drudgery from
their lite and work at smoky Mergatroyd.
What veins of Interest bad, moreover, been
opened to both flowers, scenery, pictures,
music, antiquities, social customs, political in
stitutions, European history past and that
making under their eyes, such were no longer
dead words but living interests, germs of
thought, studies to be pursued at home in the
intervals of work, in relaxations from task, by
the aid of books and papers, and in common.
As mention has been made ot the saying of
an American, the writer ventures to quote an
otherthe remark made to him by a Belgian:
"I perceive that when a Flemish shopkeeper
has realized a little money over the necessities
of life he says to himself, 'Now I will buy a
picture!' The German under the same circum
stances says, 'Now my son shall learn another
languager The American Bays, 'Now I will see
the worldP The Englishman says, 'Now I will
have salmon, though it is 4 shillings a poundf
They fill their minds your man his stomach."
There have been found toads imbedded in
stone, which are supposed to have occupied the
same position for even 6,000 years. For 6,000
years their minds have never traveled beyond
the cavity in which, enveloped in obscurity,
they have squatted; and men will allow them
selves to settle down into holes exactly
fitting them, in which they will sit
oat the span of their allotted days
in self-complacency, without an idea be
yond it, an ambition outside it. Indeed, we
live upon a Goodwin sand, that is ready to en
gult us. to suck us down and imbed us in its
heart, unless we bestir ourselves and resist the
downward suction. Let the reader look around
him and see bow many of those he knows are
imbedded in their holes as toads, able only to
talk about their holes, to be touched by noth
ing which does not affect their holes, are un
concerned about everything save the texture
of the stone that encloses them, and the slime
that drapes the walls ot their hole.
We do not say that the only means of escape
from such bondage and mental stultification is
continental travel; there are a hundred ways
of escape from petrifaction, if only we will use
them, and use them persistently. In the case
under consideration it happened to be the way,
and the most effective way, in which Pflilip
and Salome escaped from the boles Into which
tbey were about to sink and become sealed up.
But there Is one way in which the overplus
of money will never help to deliver us from

Jnlr Squeeze New York Exports a
Factor on the Boll Side
Chicago The weather was hot and muggy
here to-day, and during most of the session
the usual Saturday's quietness prevailed
in the wheat pit. Trade was enlivened by the
filling of some New York buying orders and pos
sibly some for foreign account, but local sen
timent was not sufficiently pronounced in favor
of either the bull or the bear side of wheat to
create any enthusiasm or competitive bidding.
Upon tbe whole the feeling was one of weak
ness all the morning, and early trading was at
prices fractionally below yesterday's closing
Apprehensions of a squeeze in July property
were still further allayed by a sag in the price
from 80c at the opening to 79Jc and although
a rally to about the opening price quickly fol
lowed this break, it is not believed that enough
of a short interest exists in July to be worth
mentioning. New export business in New
York was variously estimated at from 15 to 22
boatloads, and tbe news caused tbe market
here to firm up c or so, but there was a drag

We remember the case of a very short-sighted
man, who had been short-sighted from in
fancy. He never wore glasses till he was aged
about Ave and twenty, and then suddenly
found himself launched into a new world and
able to take a lively Interest In things which
had been hidden from him hitherto. VV e are
all, through life, if we do not voluntarily be
come like tho toad-hole dwellers, being intro
duced into new worlds, whether by the
acquisition of a picture like the Flem
ing, or by learning a new language, like the
Gernian,orby travel, as the Yankee. Philip
and Salome had put on their glasses simultane
ously, and it quickened their affection for each
other to be engaged on the same effort, and to
be together in the acquisition ot wisdom and
knowledge and experience. Besides this intel
lectual and moral bond tnoy had another cer
tainly at the time not very intellectual, but a
very fast and dear one the little Philip, who
traveled with them wherever they went, and
who wound himself about both their hearts,
and in doing so blended both in one. It was
early in life for the child to begin his travels,
but traveling did not hurt him. He throve on
It Before he said "Pa." or "Ma," be articu
lated the svUable "Go." As Philip the Greater
said, an augury ot the young man's future, as
one of action.
At length Philip and Salome were home; and
once again Salome flew to the arms of the dear
white-haired old man. whose face had lost all
its hardness and had acquired a new expres
sion of sweetness. And Jeremiah was able to
receive her loving embrace, and to bold her to
his breast without shrinking, without tremor.
Tho storm had passed and the St. Luke's sum
mer had set in on his end ot life, to be cheered
not only by the presence of Salome, but also by
that of Philip the Little, who. it was clear,
would become the pet and Idol of old Jeremiah,
even more than be was the pet and idol of his
father and mother.
. Late at night in the nursery, at the nursery
window on Christmas ove, when Philip the
Great and Philip the Little and Salome were
returned to Mergatroyd, husband and wife
stood, looking out into the star-besprent wintry
sky. Salome bad her arms around Philip's
waist, and he had his thrown over her shoulder,
drawing ber to his side, and she rested ber
golden head on his breast. The only light In
the room came from the fire; the only sound
for some time was the breathing of the child in
Both were happy, and occupied with their
At length Philip broke the silence and said,
"It Is very, very good of Uncle Jeremiah; he
has taken me into full partnership, and what
is more, be proposes that he should winter
abroad and return in spring to allow of our
then taking a holiday together."
"And what Is he going to do about Mrs. Side
bottom?" "I cannot say. He is himself undecided. He
says that as he laid the trap into which she
fell, he must not be too hard with her. He will
see her himself. He goes after the new year
to France when he will visit her and make
some arrangement. He says, but hardly can
mean what be says, that it Is a law of nature
that persons pinched in circumstances and
pressed for money lose their scruples, as crabs
cast their claws, and lizards drop their tails
when nipped or pursued. It is a law of nature
and must be allowed for."
Philip felt a shudder of protest against his
side, but Salome said nothing.
All at once she started. "Oh, Philip! What
A sound issued from the cradle: She ran to
it, stooped and looked at her baby. Tho flashes
of the firelight were reflected from the ceiling
on the little face.
"Hark! oh, hark, Philip. Baby Is laughing
laughing aloud in his sleep. He has never done
that before. It is from very oy at being home
at his own dear home again."
"What, Salome? after Paris and Rome, the
Alps, and the Rhine, poor old dirty, dingy Mer
gatroyd is dear?"
"To be sure it is, Philip how can it be other
wise? And oh. Philip, how kind the people
are! How pleased they all seem to see us back
again. I thought I really thought they would
have shaken my hand off, and that old Fan
shaw, the night watch, would have kissed me.
Philip. There may be more light heirted,
more picturesque, more romantrc people In
other lands, but there cau be nowuere, not
throughout the world, more true, warm
hearted, sterling folk, than our dear Yorkshire
people. Do you not love them, Philip?"
"I have given Yorkshire tho best proof of
my attachment In taking to me a wife from
Salome nestled to his side again by the win
dow, and with him again looked forth silently
Into the night iky.
After a long pause Philip said, "Hark!"
Through tne still night air could be heard the
"Some man is dead," said Philip. "How
strange at midnight.
