In the first place, I brought them here, and in the second, they are dressed alike—black satiu dominoes, with a hunch of violets pinned on the left shoulder.” Rush could hardly talk with Archie, he was so impatient to break away and look for Helen in the crowd. At last, after a few commonplaces, he started in quest. He had not searohed long before •he was rewarded. There, sitting on one of the seats in the dress circle, he saw the object of his search. There was no mistaking the poise of that head, even had he not recognized the black satin domino and the bunch of violets on the shoulder. She was sitting alone: that was strange. Where were the rest of the party, and why should its most pre­- cious treasure be left unguarded? Hastily adjusting the mask he had borrowed from Archie, Rush sat down iri a vacant seat next to the domino. cocked bat.

It was just Jike him—always standing in his own light, The drawing room door opened, and ho heard Rush’s voice saying to the but­- ler, “Toll Miss Archer that I am ’ here, James; sho is expecting me.” Then, upon seeing Archie, “Ah, you here, Archie? glad to see you. I’ve called to take Miss Archer t o see some pictures at Goupil’s; won’t you go along?” .“No, thanks,” replied Archie, some­- what Coolly; “I’ve an engagement down tQWn, and must SAy good-by;” whioh he did without lOssqil time. As Rush stood looking out Of the window, he noticed that Archie turned up, instead of down town, but he thought nothing of it, ex­- cept that bis friend had probably changed' ■ his mind.

In ihe. first place, he did hot suspect the state o f Archie’s feelings towards Bessie; and in the second, he supposed that Archie was thoroughly aware .qf b is devotion to HefCn. Knowlton. Rush was nqt altogether happy thia hftemoon. It was a whole fortnight since he had spoken a word to Helen. Bp had seen her in the-xneahtime in an old curiosity shop in Broadway, accom­- panied by her aunt and West Hastings and she seemed to be buying furniture. What did this mean? Were they actu­- ally engaged and making preparations -for housekeeping? No, they Were not; it was nothing so serious as that. West -Hastings. , Was. refurniBhing 'the dining roomin his bachelor quarters.. The craze for old furniture was just then at its be­- ginning, and he had asked Helen and her aunt to accompany him. to this shop to look a t an Old French sideboard he thought Of, buying. Helen had excel­- lent taste, ftnd she sealed the fate of the sideboard by pronouncing it a beauty. This episode, as Rush interpreted it, Was depressing enough o f itself; but added to-this he had received a long and desponding letter from his mother, tell- ing him o f the Mutual Dividend Mining company, of Col. Mortimer’s connection with it, abd. of the offer h e had made to John, “Do see John AS often as you can, Kush dear, and keep him under yonr eye. You know how I (tread the influence of Col Mortimer. Hbia a bad. unprincipled man, and dear John is so easy going that he doesn’t, .believe there is any harm in him.” John must have been in town for a Week at least and he had not yet made himself known to Rush, By chance, however, the brothers met. Rush was sent to report a masked ball at the Academy of Music—a thing he felt ut­- terly unfit to do. “I Was never at a masKeq pail in my me,'’ be toid the city editor, / “So touch the better,” replied the edi­- tor, “You -will give us fresh yleWff o fb hackneyed subject. I quite envy you your pew sensations. Get your copy in as early as possible, and good luck to you.” , Rush was about tho first person to ar­- rive at the ball, and the Academy looked gloomy enough. He had been told that th6 festivities did not begin Until late/so he arrived at 9 o’clock, thinking that that would be about the: fashion ible hour* Thero was not A woman ii the place, and the only men on handv^ero the floqr managers. He had plenty of time for reflection before the ball-opened, and for tbo sake of the associations ho wandered about behind the scenes. The Stage and parquet were boarded over, but the prima donna’s room was undis­- turbed. HO looked in and sighed. A ’ tflrfplue ’of J iStoie^ lingered, qfiihe air,, A n d h e W ig h ^ ^ ^ a itt iffKSftiCogwzelTtr qnd then ws&dered to the front, where a room had Been reserved for ttie press. A large \table stood in tbb u^n»i^ ;fur* i nished with paper, pens and ink, Thero were a great many bottles on the table, but they did not all contain ihk, or any­- thing\that looked like it. He sat down and took Apen, and thought to improve the time by writing to his mother; hut, as he could say noth­- ing about John, he concluded not to. Instead, he wrote “Helen Knowlton” over three or four sheets of foolscap, ift every variety q f penmanship, and then tori th« paper Into fine bits; But, atilr fsacM that the name toightbe discov­ Rush was too young and too enthusi­- astic not to find excitement in the scene, and when the dancing began he thought he had never witnessed anything so brilliant and intoxicating as the move­- ment o f these many colored dominoes to the music of the band. As time wore on, the plags-became more crowded, and Rush recognized among the men many faces that had become familiar to him at the opera and elsewhere. There was Uncle Lightfoot Myers renewing his youth, with a pink domino on his arm; and there was West Hastings lounging against one o f the pillars of the balcony and chaffing a Columbine. Rush won­- dered what Helen Knowlton would think if she saw her friend thus engaged. His thoughts were broken in upon by a voice at his elbow: “My handsome young friend,” said a blue domino, taking his arm, “why do you pose in this melancholy attitude on so festive an occasion? This is Romeo’s, not Hamlet’s, night. Let us walk about among the giddy revelers. I want to see a more cheerful expression on your young face.” As they walked out into the lobby, Rush racked his brain to recognize the voice or figure of the mask. His ex­- pression showed that he was puzzlM. “Ah, you do not recognize me,” she said. “How sad that makes me feel! A little disguise and one’s identity is gone. I should have known you through twen­- ty disguises.” And she turned her mask up at him in the most bewitching man­- ner. “Certainly I have never had the pleas­- ure of hearing that voice before—no man could forget so sweet a thing,” said Rush, entering readily into the spirit of the ball. And b o they thrust and parried, until his mask spied a spry old man with gray side whiskers and a bald head, when she dropped Rush’s arm as sud­- denly as she had taken it, and took the other by the hand. Dear general, 1 am so glad to see you! I have been looking for you all the even­- ing, and feared you were not coming.” The general looked pleased, though puzzled; but this was not liis first masked Bail, and in: .a’ few moments Rush saw hito moving off in the direction of the supper room, the blue domino hanging affectionately upon his arm. Before the night was over. Rush learned muoh of the ways of masked balls, and came to the conclusion that the blue domino was an entirely new acquaintance e f his and of the general's. As he started for the press room, he met his city editor with a Swisa peasant girl on hia arm.“ Hello, Hurlstone,” said he. And, stopping a moment, he whis­- pered,“ Get your copy down early, and then have yonr fun. You can write it out here and send it down.” And he, too, passed on in the direction of the supper room.- Rush hardly recognized the press room when h e returned to it. In the first place, he could hardly see across it for the smoke; and in the second, it was so noisy that he did not see how it would be possible to write there. “Hello,here’s Hurlstone!” shouted a reporter of a morning paper whom Rush had seen at different places, but had never had occa­- sion to speak to. “Come, fill up your glass-and take a cigar,\ added the re­- porter, suiting the action to the word; only he took a handful of cigars; one he lighted, the others he put in his pocket. There were a dozen men sitting around the table, some writing, and all smok­- ing. Rush declined both the proffered Cigars andthe champagne, though he lighted a cigar of his own in self de­- fense and sat flown in a corner to write. He used his note book for copy paper and his knee for a desk, and in the course of an hour he had a crick in his back and a very good story written out for The Dawn. This he dispatched. Then he went out into the ball room to look around for a few minutes, after which he intended to go home to his lodgings. H e had not passed half way through the lobby when he saw Archie Tillinghast standing at the foot of the staircase, with his mask in his hand, gazing earnestly at the hundreds of dom­- inoes who lounged past him or hurried by on mischief bent. “Why, Archie, what are you doing here? You look as though you were ex­- pecting some one. Who is she? Come, Old fellow!” said Rush, shaking his hand and: smiling knowingly. “I'm looking for my cousin Bessie, replied Archie. , “What!” exclaimed Rush, starting back, “Miss Archer here?” “Yes; why not? They all come; though they will deny it to-morrow. She is with hhr father, however, and Helen Knowl­- ton and her aunt. They didn’t come as regular participants in the ball, you know; they never do, only to see what sort o f a place it is* To do them justice, they are not enjoying themselves very much. There is a sort of excitement abotfeja,-however; but when I saw theni a w h ile ago they Were just recovering from: a frighta Jj'half tipsy fellow had addressed -'some cqarse compliments to Miss Knowlton, and she was very much alarmed—moro, I fancy, at the idea of being discovered than anything else, for ho said, ‘I know you, my beauty.’ Of course lie difln’t know her. That’s what they all say* She wanted to go home at once, but Bessie didn’t. The girl evident­- ly has sotoe mischief in her mind. I tried to find the man, to slap his face, but they conldnft point him out.” “How did you know them, Archie?” Asked Rush, He was dying to meet Hftett in her disguise, for he though* he “The beautiful Oinderplla sitting alone at the ball,” he whispered in her ear. She turned with a start; tlie eyes of the mask glared up at him. fWhy do all eyes look so wicked behind a mask?) lu a disguised voice, with just the least tremor of a laugh behind it, she replied, \Cinderella is waiting for her prmoe and —he has come.” \I forgive you, Mr. Hurlstone,” she 1 replied,“ but I don’t forgive myself for coming to such a place. It is a lesson I shall never forget. Here are my friends,” she added. And Rush saw the two la­- dies aud Mr. An-her and Arcliie Tilling­- hast. t o Wllr special articles, for tvliicli lie wap paid so much a column, but now he was taken regularly upon the ‘ of the paper, on a salary o f §80 a utility iaan,\ which gave , him just the experience that he most needed. Ho worked ih the city department, edited telegraph“ copy,’’ and wrote occasional editorials, so that his nights were pretty well occupied, and he could not have re­- newed his evenings at Helen’s had ho been so inclined. Hp was trying tq drive her out of his mind; but he found that simply impossible. To refrain from calling at her house was much easier; yet he did not accom­- plish evep -that sacrifice Very success­- fully. When fteleft tho office o f The Dawn at half past 1 or 3 o’clock in the morning, ho walked up to. Twentieth street and passed with lingering foot­- steps under her window; but he had not called upon her since tho night h is prido had been so wounded by what he took to be her desire to rid hersolf of his com­- pany. He had called a t the Archers’, however. It came naturally in his way to do so. Sometimes he dfopped in of an afternoon with Archie, and some­- times by special invitation of Bessie, who liked to talk over with him, the things sho was just then interested in. Budd­- hism was at this time attracting heir at­- tention, and, as Rush was much, moro liberal minded than Archie, she enjoyed dieCuBsihg tliis Oriental religion with Jiiin. ., , Rush xeaUy cared little more ft* it than did Archie, hut it was something to divert his mind. .

To thd hitense disgust of Archie she re­- newed h a t .acquaintance with Mme. Parapoff, and continued to attend to her Seances* She did not ask Archie to ac­- company her any - more, for she knew. that.he would try to argue her ou tof go­- ing, and as she had made up hertoind to. go the argument could only have ended: unpleasantly. She got hold ot a young married woman with a taste for the' unnatural, and the two visited the very remote and dingy apartments of the High Pripstess o f Buddha and listened to her twaddle with credulous ears. AS Archie was really in love w ith Bes­- sie, I should explain that she was not his cousin, nor any blood relation to him; had sho been I should havo taken no in­- terest in his sentiment for her. She was Mrs. Afcher’s daughter, but Bhe had been adopted, when she was 6 years old, by Mr. Archer, when ho married her. widoWeff mother. Archie had been brought ..up .to regard her as liis own cousin, but his feeling towards her had been of a warmer than cousinly nature for a-good many years. She liked him more in the cousinly way, and always turned tho conversation with a skillful stroke when she thought he was going to express other than the sentiments of a cousin towards her. Since her devo­- tion to Buddha thero had been a little cool- ness-betweeurthem:—He-cou!d-not-toler “Aren't you ready to go home yet?” said Bessie. “I think it pretty dull here.” The boyish heart in the breast 'of the young man beat high. Did she recog­- nize him? She called him“ her prince.\ How he wished the pumpkin coach were waiting at the door that he might drive off with her in triumph! They bad a pleasant chat, only he felt that he was being chaffed pretty hard at times, and he thought that some of the expressions used by the lady were hardly such as he would expect to hear from Helen's lips, \However he argued, “one feels freer behind a mask. I f she only suspected me. how differently she would speak!” In the midst of their lively sallies (she would not allow him to he sentimental:, he heard an unmistakable voice behind him say.“ Don't you think we have had enough of this, aunty?” And, looking around, he saw the fac-sinjile of the mask by his side, and near her Mr. Ar­- cher and another black domino, whioh he knew was Bessie. They all agreed to go, and Rush bade them good night at the door. Helen said nothing about the little episode of the lobby, and he was grateful to her. After he had seen their carriage drive off. Rush returned to the lobby to see what had become of the man he had knocked down. On the way he saw many curious scenes—among them the Bl’se domino who had first spoken to him J kissing the bald pate of the general. He waa glad enough that Helen had gone. When he got around by the directors’ room he heato a loud voice proclaiming, “I’d know the damned rascal if 1 saw h im ; he took me right between the eyes, before I had time to defend myself, dam n h im !” Rush pressed through the crowd. He saw the uian he had knocked down standing with his back against the wall, his hair rumpled and his shirt front pretty well demoralized. A younger m an had him by the arm , and was evi­- dently urging him to go home. The young m an’s back was turned to Rush, and his figure swayed slightly as he tugged a t the arm of his companion. Rush stepped up to him.“ Is your friend much hurt?” he inquired. He felt a sinking feeling; he wanted the floor to open and let him through; but it didn’t. The resemblance between Aunt Rebecca and Helen was very strong, and, except that the former was a trifle heavier, their figures were much alike. Rush had often remarked the likeness, but he never expected to be caught in this way. Well, there was nothing for it. She evidently did not recognize him; a t least so he thought. When Helen spoke about going, he rose to his feet. “The colonel'B not as hurt as he is mad,\ answered the young man. turning around slowly,“ though he got a pretty hard blow. Served him right; he was too fresh, making up to another man’s mask.” And the yoong man steadied himself by the wall as he turned. Rush thought he detected something familiar in the voice, though it was thick with drink; but when the fellow turned around to the light he saw who it was. “Nay, beautiful mask, why tear your­- self away froni thialestivp scene? Take my arm and let us: walk about among the gay revelers and amuse ourselves\ He offered his arm, but Helen drew back affrighted. Aunt Rebecca gave her an assuring nod over Rush’s shoulder She took the proffered arm and they strolled into the lobby. But all his glib­- ness of speech had deserted him. He was going to say so much, and could say nothing. Helen broke the silence b y saying, in disguised tones,“ You ar® not a very entertaining cavalier. W hy don’t you make yourself more agreeable, Mr.— Who shall I say?” “I am speechless with happiness, fair mask,” he replied. \To have so much loveliness so near me dazzles my eyes and paralyzes my tongue. I f you only knew ‘one half my heart would say,’ to quote from an old song, you might think better of me.” “John!\ “Rush!\ And thus the brothers met for the first time in New York. [ t o b b c o n t i n u e d. ] We have all been taught to believe that the ocean, after allowing for tide waves and wind waves, has a level surface, that there are no hills or valleys on the waters. M. Bouquet de la Orye has disputed this; has, in fact, demonstrated its fallacy. If we take a U shaped tube with distilled water of equal temperature on both sides, the two surfaces will be perfectly level, but if one side con­- tains a liquid that is denser than that on the other, more of the lighter liquid is required to balance the heavier, and therefore the lighter will stand at a higher leveL If fresh w ater Is on one side and salt water on the other, equilibrium can only be established by the fresh water standing a little higher than the salt. The like must happen if we have a uniform Liquid, os regards composition, but of unequaled temperature T be O cean's Surface. I have no doubt you could be very eloquent on any theme you chose; but I am afraid you are a young man of words. You could be just as eloquent to the next mask that came along.\ \On the contrary,\ answered Rush, somewhat loftily. •• I would have nothing at all to say to another; my heart is not large enough for two masks.” “I have heard men protest in this way before, but they liave forgotten what they said ere the last word left their Ups. There was one young man in whom I be­- lieved, but even he turned out like all the rest. He professed the greatest friend­- ship for me, visited me at m y house, and we passed many pleasant evenings to­- gether; but suddenly his visits ceased. Without a word o f warning he stopped coming to see me. Our pleasant even­- ings came to an end. Do you k n o w why ? He had formed a pleasanter friendship HERE YOU ARE! Surh variations occur in the ocean. Where rivers are pouring large quantities of fresh water into the sea, and where icebergs are rapidly melting, tbe salinity is proportion­- ately lower than In other parts. The tem­- perature also varies, and, therefore, an equi­- librium can only be attained by variations of level, the lighter water must stand higher than the denser, whether the difference ba due to temperature or salinity. Thus, in crossing the vyarm gulf stream, a ship sails uphill on entering,, proceeds thus to some­- where about the middle and then descends. In this,respect it resembles a flowing river, which is similarly crested towards the middle of tbe stream, tt is also like a river in being higher at its source than at its embouchure, as its temperature gradually declines in the course of its northward progress.—New York Home J ourual. . c o h n k c t io n s.—At Lyons With Main U n e N.
