In her high notes, however, tho song, itrees shows fatigue. Mmo. Oerstor cannot \attack\ thorn with tho samo audacity as formerly, and slio is too much of an artist not to realize that fact.

Of courso all the expenses were running, although the rocoipts were stonpod. Mr. Abboy cannot bo disturbod by l such trifles, however. lie smiled pleasantly as ho referred to the unfortunate Tuesday, i and spoke of it in his usual placid manner. Col. John A.

Its white walls are panked by deep veran- das, over which the wild roses have grown thickly. The gravelled walks are clean swept. The undu- lating lawns are cool and shadowy with the elms and Junipers. At the entrance gate, where a cedar lodge affords two rostto seats, sits a lady ln a pale blue dress of tho richest texture, loosely cut, and girdled simply at the waist. Sho wears a little gypsy hat and she Is very beautiful. Uer white band, as It lies on the rough rail of the lodge, sbootB a little red gleam as the setting sun touches the diamond on her Anger. She Is looking down tho road In a reverie. The dust of the highway Is like dying gold. The autumn gleams of the Western sky turn the maples to a blood-re- d, and they burn In the vista like live coals dropped from the sky. The pensive face lights up. Some one la approaching. She Utts her head up and you see the coal-gra- y ejes and the sweeping eyebrows. A handsome vehicle Is driven In at tye gate. A man Jumps out and tho vehicle goes on up to the house. lie sprlnss up the little step, puts an arm about the blue dress and ktsses the woman's up- turned mouth. Her arm has gone over his shoulder and she holds htm a moment In an embrace. \I saw your face half a mile down the road,\ he said \what a beacon of love it Is. How long have you been waiting J\ \Notions. I've been thinking,\ she replied, \It's a thinking hour. The sound of the locusts makes me melancholy.\ \Well he said, sitting down by her aide, \ I supposo nothing will rob a woman of that lux- ury. But there Is nothing need to make you mel- ancholy, Is there J\ \No only the fear that perfect hanplness can never last.\ \It's lasted pretty stoutly for two years. My darling, when It's built right It is eternal. What have you been thinking about:\ \Of how good and noble and yoa are,\ she said promptly. \ Everything re- minds me of It when you are away. \ \ I ltko that,\ he said laughingly and trying to bo facetious. \Doesn't anything remind you of It when I am hero)1' She didn't par any attention to his humor, but kept on ln her own vein. When I think of It all, \ she said, ' It seems to me It must stop. Sometimes I look at mjself and 1 cannot comprehend It. I am so different. Tell me, what was It made you love me ?\ \I've asked myself that question a thousand times, \ho replied, ' but I never got a satisfactory reply. The only possible anawer was, I Just did.\ \What you could havo seen ln poor me I can't Imagine.\ \Nor I, \said he. \I never did lmtlne. I Jnst saw. All I know about It Is I loved you with a upematural lore from the first, and I could no 'more struggle against It than a man can struggle ssulnst a stroke of llgbtuiug. 1 don't know what made me carry you off that night when I saw you ln front of your father's house. I must have been desperate, and It was Indefensible Hut you see It all turned out right. Now there Is uobody on earth to dispute my right to you.

I have grown so full of a great love that I tremble only to think something might happen to It. \ \Oh well, ' he said carelessly, \If that Is all. I'm satisfied, because nothing ever can happen to it.\ They got up and walked np the path with their arms about each other. \My dear,\ sho said, \ accidents might happen.mlghtthey not 7 You go away so much. And when you are gone It Isn't reasonable to be as happy as when you are here.\ \ Is my last visit to tho city for some time,-- ' be answered. \I must go back and give my evidence in the suit. Then the mailers of the estate will be all settled and we can sit quietly down here for the winter and make our friends come to our fireside, and when (the aprlng retnrna we'll go to Italy and look at all the places we shall read about these coming lonulghta. \ \ JImt you go T\ \I'm afraid 1 must, but I'll be back the next day If possible.

But thers wm something beautiful ut nei Under de- votion and In her clinging fondness for him. mi CAN TaKK TOU FROM Mil\ She went to the train with blm, and when he was gone there were childish teara ln her eyes. Bnt she came back and set about her simple duties with a happy air. There was to much to be done before the cold weather set In, and the wanted to transform her sitting-roo- before ho got back. The matting had to come up and the heavy carpets to go down. The English fireplace had to be lit. The furniture alio had the plants from the conservatory brought ln and fea. tooned In the bay window. The best books of travel were scattered on the centre-tabl- e. The leopard akin was laid before the ruddy logs. Tne great Limoges lamp was ready for lighting. Sho stood and looked at the growing comfort of her work wllh pleasure. Oizlng out of the bay window she said; \ Presently the snow will be on all the hllla and fields .and come bleakly down In big Hakes for days; the winds will blow those trees and race across the dead leaves, cud we shall be ao happy and comfortable here. \ a On the day that she expected blm back ahe even sat down on a cushion beloro the fireplace and Imagined him ln the big chair there, with hla slip- pers on, reading to her, while the gusts sang out side and it wua all so Jolly and pleasant Inside. While she sat there with a dreamy smile of hap- piness on her handsome face her reverlo became ao deep that ahe did not hear the crunch of car- riage wheels on the gravel, and the rlno of the door-be- ll startled her. She wondered who it could be, and whtli ahe wondered she heard voices In the hall, then a heavy footstep, and tht next mo- ment the door opened, suddenly and she was star-I- ng up from the oushloa, llki one ln a dream, into the face of John Watson Keeley. Changed as he was, she knew him ln an Instant, and a littlo acroam escapod from her. lie stood Just Inside thetdoor with bis felt hat In his band, and Just behind blm was tho Indignant servant. \Toll your flunky to go away and leave us alone,\ be aald with a Jerk of his head and with a cold, cruel tone. She got up and staggered to the table, and lean- ing upon It tried to be aura It waa not an Illusion. \ Tell him,\ repeated Mr. Keeley, \that you are my wife. There's been a mistake and he don't want to make It worse. \ She heard this without clearly understsndlng It. \ Your wife,\ she repeated, drawlug her hand Involuntarily across her eyes. \Your wife I\ And then with a sob. \My God, can It be ruel\ In her perplexity and helplessness she started for the bay window. Somehow she felt that If he were only here ho would save her. lie had always aaved her. The man.thinklng, ahe Intended to escape by the window, sprang after her. Then ahe turned and drew herself up, and they stood facing each other for a moment. \Bay the word, mum, and I'll drag him Into the road,\ said the servant. \ Will jou 7\ replied Mr: Keeley. \You'd bet-t- go Blow. I told tou this waa my wife. I've come to fetch her, and If you Interfere with me, 111 double you up with an ounce of lead. ,1 don't allow anybojy to come between me and my wife.\ He looked desperate and capable of anytblng,and a new and sndden fear sprang up ln the woman. It tie came back now there would be a scene of vio- lence and tu would get killed. After all, ahe waa this man's wife. Nothing, nothing must happen to Mm. \Oo out in the hall,\ sho said to the servant. \I will talk to this man.\ \And ahut Uiedoor,\ saldMr. Keeley. \Oh you can listen, but don't you Interfere \ When the man had none out the woman spoke. \Stand back, and tell mo what you w.mt.\ ' ' I want you. Do you know you're committed a State's prison o flense 7 Do jou think I'd come here If I wasn't right t I Just want you, because you're mine. Now, tako my ad Ice and make It pleasant. Where's your paramour:\ \ What do you want to do with met\ she asked. \Oh I Just want to mako you lore, honor and obey tne. So get jour traps on, and bring a lot of money, for I'm dead broke.\ \You aro a ruffian and a villain,\ ahe aald, ' ' and I belle ed jou were dead. \ \ Well, you see, I'm not, ao don't waste words. There's noihlug so desperate aa an outraged hus- band. And bo always has tho community on his side.\ The thought that determined her waa of the Igno- miny aud shame of all this to Mm, and the fear that If the men met thero would be bloodshed. Every Impulse of her uature went out to him lu thla crista, who bad done so much for her. She knew that ahe must step down from her position as a lady and become once more the companion of a desperado. She knev that It would kill her. But ahe drew herself up &nd said: \ I will go with 700. God help mel\ Then she took off her rings, unclasped the drops In her eara, stripped herself of every memsnto of bet happy life and laid them all ln a little spark- ling pile on the table, What art you doing:\ said Mr. Keeley, ln astonishment. i She did not reply, bnt went on ln a mechanical manner. He came and put his arm on her shoulder. \ Don't bo a fool I\ he said; you'll need 'em. \ Then sho named up. \Don't touch me, or I shall drop at jour feet,\ sho said. Walking to tho door she flung It open. \Leave the room. When I am ready I will Join you ln the hall. ' Sho pointed with an Imperative p, and he oboyed her with something like wonder end in his face. The moment she bad shut the door, her distress was unbounded. She walked op and down and wrung her handB. She went to the window and wllh atarlng eyes of expectancy looked out, Bar- ing: \Why does he not come:\ And then she turned away, saying: \No no, no; he mutt not come 1 lie must not come I I must go I O Ood, why could not this beautiful dream have lasted:\ In a condition of terror and perplexity bordering on hyalerlcs, she went round the room looking at each familiar object as If for the last tlmo. She put her finger through the bars of a hsndsomo bird-cag- e and a mocking bird lit upon her finger. \ Oood-b- Jlarlo; I'm going. Uood-b- pet.\ And the bird let out a strain of Jubilant disbelief ln anything like misfortune, and rubbed hla bill on ber white Antrer. She opened a door and a little terrier .camo bounding In. She picked it up and fondled It. \Oood-by- , Jetry,\ aho sjd. \I've got to go.\ And the dog yelped and struggled and wagged Its tall wllh a tine dog con- tempt for auch an Impossibility. With a keen sense ahe took ln all the elegant trifles of the room and their associations. There atood the little Japaneae teapot and the two tiny S6vrea cups how many times aho bad made the late cup of tea with her own handa as they sat there, and how often before drinking It they had reached across the table like two children and kissed esch other. For a mo- ment she stood atarlng at vacancy. What would ho aay when be found ber gone. How wonld he live In this lonely place with all these remlndera about him. What would he think of ber who could go without leaving one word. She rushed to the little secretary and aelzed a pen, and began to write ln an nncertain, shaky hand: ' ' Oh, my darling, the blow has fallen. Ood blrss you and help you. You will know all without my telling you. There Is but where we shall not be aruarated. I will go there drat and wait for you.\ She folJed it and left it on tho table by the aide of her trinkets. Then throwing on a heavy wrap, ahe gave a gasp and opened the door. Mr. Keeley stepped In, closed it, and stood with his back against It. \Look here, Mag,\ said he, ' as your'c going toba sensible and do tho right thins, I don't want to be hard ou you. I know I ain't as good as you are, but I swear I'll try and be a different nun I don't want you to meet me with that kind of a took. I had you drat, and you used to think something of mo. You've had a picnic for two years in tnlt place, and I've had the hardcat kind of luck.

This man was a dstperado, 8he saw that. Something had made a reckless scamp of him, and a eonaoloctness oftbli mad her feverish to gel away. She called the In, gathered up tho Jewels and the letter, and pat them ln hla band, ' ,4lH saying: ' 10lvo those to Mr. Bedley when he comesvj LH Tho letter explains. \ ' '\gaaal Mr. Keeley put his band onfthe man's (hOnlderV jageH \D ajou!\hosald.

Letters may got TS5s5W& within ten miles of J them, but that isn't j!rw''e':( near enough to do much good. Whllo In London he was a designer of pattern for some of tho large estab- lishments there. His wife was a mistress of tho art of needlework. This gift htiB de- scended to her oldost daughter. Tho younger girl has aspirations to the stago. The objects on which the older girl em- ploys her skill are ladles' shoes, silk stock-mg- s, silk underskirts, gloves, and garters, Tho needles sho uses liavo to be imported. It is a No. 1R needle, nbout.'as thick as an oyo-las- h. No. 20 needles, tho next size, aro so small that they do not have on eyo. They are only used to mako holes with. To get strands lino enough for tho work tho silk is split in two. Tho ancients used to call embroidered things resplcta acu, painted with n needle. Tho work of tho refugoe's daughter is so Cuo thnt it is like painting with a needle. Tho father used to do work for a large dry-goo- homo somo years ago to tho extent of 9C00 or $700 a wnok. lint ho was engaged on something not likely to suggest itself in con- nection with lino silk embroideries. He worked for years and sunk a considerable sum of money in pcrfeoting a gun which would discharge hcavon knows how man shots at once. Ho negooiatcd with both the English and American governments for its introduc- tion, but nothing has come of it except pov- erty. Ho used up his ovenings in trying to elaborate the gun. They do work, tho father and danghter, for tho principal dry goods houses. Their work goes to the Vanaerbilts, the Goolets, Mrs. J. O. Ayer and her daughter, Mrs. Commodore Piorsou, Mrs. Terry, tho Van Aukens and dozens of othor New York ladies who mako dressing a flno art. Some of thoir embroidery was sent to the Paris Exposition. Ono piece wns a dosign for a slipper. It represented a peacock with a spread tail. Every feather of the peacock's tail was made with a stitch of difforeut-col-ore- d silk. At the Vnndcrbilt fancy hall, Mrs. \Wilson orderod this pattern to bo embroid- ered on a pair of slippers. Tho eyes of tho peacock were small diamonds. Miss Van Auken had, as one small item in her trousseau, ten pairs of embroldored satin slippers. Tho colors aro bluo, cream, whito, sugo green, dovo and gray, and tho embroid- ery bnrmonizos with tho different tints. An. othor beautiful pair of slipporn is of pearl Suedo kid, and tho pattern is worked in small metal beads. Tho bridal Blippers aro in silver bullion. \I havo boon embroidering now for two years,\ said the elder girl, \ and there is no stylo I cannot do. I generally see what sort of Etich suits tho pattern best. It is almost impossible to get girls to do any of the work. We advertiso for them, and thero are plenty of applications, but it is too fine work. I havo nevor had ono learn it, Many of them leavo as soon as thoy see tho size of the needle. It would tako six months to teach a girl proporly.\ Of course the prices for this work aro good. An undershirt of silk costs $5 to embroider. The slippers and shoos aro $16 or $20. When Peter Gilsoywaa married he had pair of slippers embroidered In gold bullion, and the embroidery alone eost 85. He probably did not use them to play baseball in. It takes the girl two days working from 8 to 13 and from 1 to 0 to embroider ft pair of silk stockings. The prlco is from f 0 to 9. Sometimes n pair of kid glovos about two yards long and with forty.olght buttons tro sent In to bo embroidered their whole longth. Two or three dollars worth of work :au bo stitchod Into garters. Why a tllk Eartcr should havo a gold clasp with a monogram in ioweln and a profusion of fine needlework on it is ouo of those thiugsthntnoninnkiuiweth. Of cojprse tho work Is taxing and worrying. Especially when a lady will como in and say, as thoy sometimes do : \ Oh, that wont do. I havo no suoh colors as those lu my cos- tume.\ Thon about a thousand or two stitches have to be taken out and others put in. \ That tiros me,\ said tho girl, \ but ladles who get this sort of work done aro vory par-ticul- though thoy do not miud the expense vory often. I did tho stockings and slippers that Isabolle Urquhart wears in 'The Mar- quis.' She knows what good work 1b. Some of the actresses like showy things, but you an shovo Inferior work off on thorn.\ BHE TRIED A MAN'S TRICK. A Scheme to Get st Ham Sandwich, a Mince Tie and 80 Cent for Nothing. \ Put those things right down and get out of here Just as quick as yon can. You're a dead fake and I'm onto you.\ It was in a Park row lnnoh-roo- and noon tho busiest portion of tho day. Tho speaker was tho young man whoso ear is ever jalert for tho call of the hurrying waiters ' lleof and I\ \ Ham and 1\ \ T'eggs-t- wo 1\ whilohis doft fingers aro dissoctmg a hugo hunk of cornod-bce- f, slicing up horns, slash, ing loaves of bread, ladling bnked beans, Juggling with crockery and raking in dimes and checks, all with suoh rapidity that enoh seems part of tho samo act and to bo executed at the samo tlmo. Ho had stopped in his bewildering display of gymnastics to address tho remark quoted to a neatly dressed woman for whom ho had Just mado a package containing a ham Rand-wic- h and a pioce of nnnco pio. Tho pie and the sandwich wore tho \ things\ bIio was re- quested to deposit npon tho counter, and this she did, without demur or delay, and hurried from tho room. Then the young man mado ft vicious dlvo for tho big rump of red beef with his keen carver and told Tnn Wonu) reportor about it. \That woman,\ ho said, \came in hero seven weeks ago whon I was just as busy as I am Hlio ordered a sandwich and n pioce of pio and thon waited for mo to ask for tho pay fifteen cents. Whon I did ask her she insisted that sho had laid down n dollar and she was waiting for hor change Well, it's hard to think a respectable-lookin- g woman like her would Ho. but I know she hadn't paid and mado her show down. \ Sho tried tho same game again I was a littlo bit doubtful tho flrsttimewhethor 1 had taken her measurement properly, and so I thought I'd make a test. I pretended to bo a great deal busier than I was, and it caught her. Sho thought she'd mako eighty, five cents and hor lunch, and tried the old triok. You could boo from tho way sho scurried out that sho was guilty. \ It's an old game, but is usually playod by men, and they aren't nearly so modest as that woman was. Thoy usually play for cliaugo for a five, and somotimes they get it. \ It's n sneaking trick,\ concluded the carver, as ho reduced a ham in length a quar- ter of xa inch with his greasy glaive. m Out of One' Atmosphere. Vom Harpr$ Haiar, Mrs. A. (who entertains a good deal) I have really enjoyed the evening exceedingly, Mrs. Duck. It's suoh a relief to get out of one? own at- mosphere once In awhile. FASHION IN BBARD8. The Blmple Dtnstacbn Heeme to be More in favor this Heaeen, DAM probably lived and died with ft full 6 brown beard. Ho couldn't stroll through 2jv 3v \'ck \10 Gordon of Edou to It2 tVw ; Jif RC0 '10W \10 \ ol'lor \1vkr vc '0\ow8\ woro thoir I TrnnyMf J bnrihi or muRtnchcs. A V yMj (xJi TImt ,s wncro ,l10 ' Broadway swell of to- -' day has tho ndvaulngo of Adam. Fashion Is as capricious in dic- tating to tho sterner box how thoy shall trim their beards ns it is to women in trimming their bonnots. It is strange to seo how many variations the hirsute growth on a man's faco is lo of. Stranger still is it that bo few men leave tho whole thing to naturo and let their boards grow as they will. Your man has generally begun the down- ward course which .begins after tho grand climacteric. Occasionally a young follow who is just starting in on a profession will a full beard because It makes him frow older, and oxtremo youth in doctors and lawyers is not usually regarded as their strongest claim to patronage. When they have built up a practico thoy can Bhave off ton years of age. Idist year tho correct thing was to have tho beard closely trimmed and terminato in a point. Tho Vandyke style is nut so much In vogun tho present season . To sport only a mustache Is tho prevailing mode, nnd eight-tent- of the men that aro met on tho streot aro baro of visngo except for tho fringes on their uppor lips. Homo of tho youngest bloods are oven dostituto of theso, much to their dismay. Another fashion for tho present season Is to havo tho wholo lower half ol tho fnro shaven clean, a lino almost straight from tho mouth to tho ear boing tho dividing lino. It is English, nnd a cross between tho \ canon-ic- al inch.\ or littlo tuft which grows by tho ear, and tho \ liurnsldes,\ which tho lYhodo Island General of that name mado fashion- able through tho civil war. Still another English fashion whloh finds favnr with the men on the debatable ground between late youth and maturity is to wear n full beard of moderate length, parted on tho chin and brushed carofully to olthor side. Nobody attompts to dye his mustacho or beard and so tho spectaolo of n Jet black growth with white roots is spared tho public Somo old bloods \who dlo but never surrender,\ cling to a bristling, snowy mustache which stands out with distinguished pffeot ugalnat a fresh complexion made roseate by tho vintage of Champagne Nobody y has tho moral courago or idiocy to wax tho ends of his mustacho so that thoy extend literally as still as cambrio needles with Hungarian cosmetic. Napoleon III. was tho author of this fashion, and James Fisk, jr., the last brilliant cxamplo of it in Gotham. Tho new Btyle seoms to favor har- bors. But thorn is no Btyle which does not favor them excopt tho full beard which old ago allows to find its way to tho waistband, Tliore are hundreds of men who would no more think of attending to thoir own beards than of being manicures. They don't know how to uso ft razor. They gaBli thomsolvea pitiably, or mako their skins dreadfully raw. A number of thoso who grow hair on thoir faoes develop a full beard during tho wintor, and get shorn in spring. They think that it koepB them from getting cold. It does, to a certain extent, hut it fails to prevent the throat from gotting tendor. Tho English ore more given to the full beard, kept at a certain length, than Ameri- cans aro. Hence it is doubtful is tho mus- tache alono will carry tho day entirely, or ob- tain for any length of time. Ono has only to wMch tho men that hurry through tho st roots to lco that fashions in tho heard sway most of them. S AND CARTER-CLASP- Oxidized silver takes tho lead in shoo-buckl- for overy day wear. A diso of oxidized silver is ornamented with a spider or other itiBoct. In garter-olasp- two daisies in enamel overlapping each othor is a favorito design. In gold, an ivy vine in greon enamel is effective These claspB have a patent fasten- - ing, so that thero Is no danger of their becom. ing undone. Tho small bucklos for low-c- ut slippers are of Etruscan gold, or of gold and out steel. A buckle for evening wear is of silver, tho outside edgo boing ornamonted with forgot-ino.no- ts in enamel. Rhine stones sot in silver make effective buckles for evening wear. Thoro aro, also, flno wrought buckles in silver. A vory pretty pair of clnsps is ornamented with a design of four-lea- f clovers, and an. othor pair lias n chocker-boar- d pattern in enamel. SMALIj C0IN8F0H H0LIDAI8. The Customary Inrrenne In the Demand Already I'rlt. Tho unusual domand for small coins which generally shows itBolf about holiday time is already felt, aud reports from other sections of tho country say that tho demand for cents nnd fivo-co- pieces especially cannot bo mot. Oold dollars, silver dollars, quarters and pieces also havo a special valuo at this season of tho year, and the supply is said to bo far bolow tho demand, especially in tho country. Thus far Now York has not beon affected in n perceptible degreo, and it is not probable, according to tho statement mado in the y, that tho stringency hero will bo as great as has been noticed in forraor years. Last Christmas season wns remarkable nbovo nil others for tho almost utter impossibility of procuring small coins. A promlum as high as 25 por cent, was offered In somo in- stances for pennies. Ono charitable instltn. tion realized n substantial sum by selling ItH pennies, collected in church contributions, at the rata of $1.10 per hundred, whllo many speculators in coins profited amazingly by tho htriugeiicy in tho Bin all coin market. Said one of the officers nt tho when questioned y i \ I do not think that the supply will fall far short of tho do- mand this yrnr. Of courso, thero will bo mora or less of a cornor in tho nickel and penny market, but I havo no idea that the will bo felt by tho business mou which was experienced n year ago. Tho Government has taken unusual precautions this year to obviato tho diftloulty and has sent out nil tho fractional pioces tho mint could coin and still keep np tho coinage of tho silver dollar whloh tho statute commands. \ The report of the Director of tho Mint at Philadelphia shows that in September 41,000! five-ce- pioces wore coinod, whllo 3,620,000' pennies camo fresh from tho mint. In Oc- tober tho ooinagn of five-ce- pieces aggro-gate- d 718,000, whilo that of pennies was in ex- cess of 1,000,000. The same quantity has probably been put on tho marVet during the prcFent month. You Bee, thoreforo, that over 10,000,000 pennies, which is an immense num- ber, havo already been put in circulation, to. gothor with 1,000,000 five-ce- pieces, since Sept. 1 last. The reports also show that so ninny fractional silver coins have been put in circulation, that tho demand for thom will be fully mot. \Thus far wo have had no demands made upon us which we havo not been able to sup- ply, although the rush will not manifest itself fully nntil next week, or later.\
