Gloriously bri ght rqje the sun one June morning years ago. Long, warm rays shon e a cross the spotless floor and touched the rows ot shining-dishes on the dresser in Mrs. Prime ' s cozy k itchen. The little maid who stood at the open window was thinking of something far less p leasant than tho peaceful scene before her . Her cheeks were pale and her eyes swollen with weep ing as she stood there looking lan guidly out. Onl y yesterday she had thought herself the happ iest g irl it< the world , when out there under the lilacs she had promised to be Robin Moore ' s wi fe. Today she was tbe most miserable , for she was accused of a crime and was about to lose her onl y means o f support. Yes , she , Moll y Gowen , whose character bad always been the best , was accused of the ft by the emp lo yer whom she had ser ved faithfully these four years. It came abo ut in this wise: The day be- fore our story opens Capt. P rime brough t home thirty silver dollars and p laced them away in the desk that stood in one corner of the keep ing room. Before do- ing so , however , he showed them to his wi fe and Molly, and allo wed little Hitty to p lay with them awhile. In the after- noon he went to the neighboring village , lea ving the desk unlocked , as he of ten did. It was sunset when he returne d , and just as he entered the house he saw Molly como out of the keep ing room . She started and turned pale at si g ht of her master , who asked her with a smile: ' •Did I frig hten you , Moll y?' 1 Moll y laug hed nervously as she . re p itted: \Ye s , si r; I did not hear you coma in , and you startled me. \ The captain thought no more of the oc- currence then , though it surprised him to see Miss Moll y so nervous. Presently Mrs. Prime came In with Hitty in her arms. \Oh , it was your voice that woke me , \ she said to her husband. \I had one of my headaches this afternoon , and I think Hitt y and I both have slept nearly t wo hours. \ In the evening, after her work was done , Molly came in , dressed for a wa lk , and asked permission to visit a friend who w o r ked f or a neig hboring famil y. It was granted , and Moll y starfed out , but had not gone far before she met Robin , and instead of visiting her friend she strolled down by the river with him. Shor tly after the captain came in and went to \ the desk for something. On opening the drawer , he found that his money was not -where lie left it in the morn ing. He searched each drawer in turn, then called his -wife- \Hannah , ha ve you moved my money r \ \Why no , \ responded Mrs. Prime , coming to the door and looking in. Again they searched the desk , but with the same result. \Call Molly, \ said the captain. ''She lia s gone over to Mr. Ford' s to see Eunice , \ responded his wife. \Has any one been here today? - ' ' ¦I fa, I asked Moll y that question when I woke up, and she said she had not seen an y one this afternoon. \ \What was she doing in the keeping room today when I came home?\ Mrs. Prime looked surprised. \I did not kno w she was in there , \ she rep lied. The captain then told his wife of Molly ' s con fusion that afternoon. \But , Ezra , \ she rep lied , \ you surely don 't suspect Moll y? Wh y, I would as soon think of Hitty as of her. \ \What e lse can have become of the money ?\ he queried. This was a problem that Mrs. Prime coul d not solve , so she remained silent. Just then Moll y came in , looking flushed and tired from her rap id walk. \Where have ^ you \beenT r demanded the captain. ¦ ' ¦-- Molly looked confused. She was not used to being asked such a question , and the captain ' s manner was so stern it f rightened her. She could not tell him about Robin- so she remained-silent. The capta i n ' s brow grew stem. If Molly had answered him frankly he would have believed her , but her silence strengthened his suspicions. \Ha ve you been to see Eunice?\ he continued. Molly bung her head and answered faintly, \No. \ \What were you doing in the keeping room this afternoon?\ There was such a lump in Molly ' s throat that she could not answer at first , but after a moment she said: \I went in to see if it needed dusting. \ \It took you some time to make the answer , \ said the ca ptain sarcastically. \It is of no use , Moll y, you may as well tell me at once where my money is!\ Molly turned p ale and looked helplessl y at him. Even Mis. Prime ' s faith began to waver , and she said gently: \Tell him , dear. He won 't b p bard on yon. '' This was too much for the poor girl , who burst ink> t*_r « And cried out re- hementl y: \I don 't know anything a bout your money! What do you mean?\ \Come , come!\ said the capta in , an- grily, \this won 't do , for you see you are found out. I wouldn ' t have believed it of yoi i l J would : havo trusted you anywheres -1 suppose I oug ht to send you to jail; but I won 't on your mother ' s account. ! If you will restore the money ' ¦ Til forgi -r e yon; but it you do not I s hall-- send you home without , your pay, and everybody e ha Q know why, so that they v may not g« deceived in you as I have. \ ' Poor Molly crept off to bed with a bursting heart and wept through the long ho o ri of the night Not only the thoughts of her -disgrace , which, wig ter- rible to the proud girl , kept her ri eeples s ; but the thought* of her mother kad aster , who were dependent upon her fee sup- port How would they live now? ' As Molly turned from the windowllrs . Prime came in. Her mother ' s heart was filled with p ity at si ght of the girl' s pallid face , and taking her cold hand the said , \Keep up good courage, child. I believe in ' your , innocence , and some time the Qv - tfey will be found; I am sure. \ Tears sprang in Holly ' s eyes at the kind words. One at least believed in her and trusted her stfli How the thought com- forted her. . ' , V o ^ ** \\ ;? \ ' A < : ' ' \ \ ' * ¦ K r v - s*- v *- * * 5- -;•*- ^ ' $ - - ^ 3 is ^ . -^^^^ l That night , when a ll her preparations wece made for leaving, she took Hi tty u p to kiss her good-by. The child was Tery dear to Molly, who took a great deal of care of her; but Hitty struggled angrily, crying out : \Go ' way I Oo s ' an touch me 1 Go ' s a bad , wicked g irl , for my daddy says sol\ A hard , rebellious feeling crept into Molly ' s heart as s he set the child down and took up her bundle. She found Mrs. Pr ime waiting for her in the hall and t he gentle woman kissed her cheek and pressed s ometlu ' ng into her hand. \Don 't give up, Moll y, \ she whis- pered ; \ remem ber I trust you. \ \God bl es s you for that!\ said Moll }' fervently as she turned a way to hide the falling tears. W hen she had reached tho hi g hway, she opened her hand , and the re lay two shining gold dollars , her month' s wages. Somehow , the littie gol d p ieces warmed the g irl' s heart and as sured her again that the whole world was not aga inst her. Ho w merril y she had trip ped along this road a week ago , sing ing as she went ; but now she walked with lagg ing steps , drea ding to tell the folks at home he r trouble , yet longing for their sym- pathy. The air was filled with tho melody o f the birds , and tho sound of d istant water at the mill , but Molly heedc-d not the sweet sounds , nor saw the blue hills penciled against the summer sy k. The great rose bush beside her mother ' s door was flaming wi th red roses , and a li ght breeze scattered the petals all around her as she went up the path. Little Betty w ont out to mee t her , crying joy - fully, \Oh , Molly ! have you como home to make a visit? How g lad I am!\ Moll y could not answer , but tak ing her sister ' s hand in hers , she went into the room where h er mother tat. What a feel ing of comfort and rest her mother ' s presence gave t ho poor g irl; slio had one friend at least who would love and trust her , como what mi g ht. Without a word stio threw herself down at her mother ' s feet , and burying her face in her lap, burst into tears. Mrs. Go wen stroked her daughter ' s hair silentl y and wait. d for her to gro w calme r. At leng th slw told her story, m uch to her mother ' s indi gnation. \D id they not know you better than t hat?'' s he asked. \You who have worked for them so long and so well! Don 't be afraid , Molly ! God is with the innocent and he will overrule this for your good , child. 'Behind a frowning Providence , God hides a smiling face. ' \ \And , oh mother , \ continued Molly, '•I was so hap py before this happened , for I ha d promised Kobin Moore to marry him; but now I never can unless that money is found , for people shan ' t say Robin has marr ied a thief. \ The news of Moll y s disgrace spread like wildfire. Those who envied her her pretty face and the marked preference which handsome Robin Moore showed for her , pretended to believe her guilty, and treated he r with coldness when they met , but the majority o f her nei ghbors were very indignant , and pronounced Capt. Primea \ purseproud old Pharisee. \ T hese sympathizing friends gave many proofs of their good will , and helped Jlolly in every w ay they could, \One thi ng I am learning, mother , \ she sa id with a smile , \ and that is to kno w my friends. \ T he next evening after Moll y ' s dis- missal , Robin camo to see her and wa s very hitter towards Capt. Prime , whom Molly d efended stanchly. \Ci rcum- stances were all against me , \ she said , \ and it is no wonder he thou ght so. If ever the tru th is known he will feel badly enough , for he is a jus t man. '' Robin ur ged a s perdy marriage , but Molly would not bear of it. \No \ she rep lied , \I will never marry you till this is cleared , \ In vain ho protested ; she remained firm nnd ho was forced to sub- mit , vowing vengeance , however , when the truth would be known. Drea rily the weeks crept by, and st ill Mo lly was without work. Day after day she Bou ght emp loyment , but tho scandal outran her and she was looked upon with susp icion. If any one did hire her for a day, she had the mortification of know- ing she was watched. She kept all these t ilings from her mot h er ' s knowledge ; bu t they weighed on her proud sp irit and she gre w pale and thin. Their little hoard o f money was all gone , and tho meal was getting low , so poor Moll y ' s re- flectio ns were gloomy enouglnas she sat b y the window one afternoon kn itting and watchin g the dusky road. Suddenly she dropped her work , crying: \Oh , mother ! Capt. Prime is coming up the lane. What if—oh , can it be ho has found his money V \Very - likel y ho has , \ replied her mother calml y. Tho captain rode up to the door , and springing from his horse rapped loudly. \Please go to the door , mother , \ said Molly faintly; \I can 't. \ Mrs. Go wen opened tho door nnd greeted her visitor with quiet di gnity , lie asked for Moll y and was invited in. Going strai g ht to the trembling g irl , he took both her hands in his and began: \Moll y, the real thief is found, Wil l you forg ive me for unjustly accusing you?\ For ' a moment Molly fe lt as if the solid earth were sli pping from beneath her feet , and she would have fallen if he had not caught her. She revived immedi- atel y and cried out : \Thank God ! Oh , thank God!\ Thou her te nder heart went out toward the real cul prit. \A re you quite sure this time , sir?\ she asked , earnest l y. \ Quite sure , \ ho answered , \for she has confessed. \ \Oh , sir, \ said Molly, \don 't bo hard on herl Tliink of all she has suffered , for if I who am innocent , have suffered so kneel y, what must , the guilty one have endured?\ Capt. P rune wad deeply touched by this appea l , t hough he answered li ghtly ; \Oh I shan 't hurt her , thoug h I don 't think her crime has cost her much sor- row; but you haven 't said you forg ive me , Molly. Do you?\ \Free ly!\ she replied , \ you are so good yoursel f that it makes yon angry with wrong doers, \ The captain winced. \Say rather I was too uncharitable and harsh ; but I have learned a le sson I shall not forget. Why don 't you as k me who the thief is?\ \I would like to know if you wish to tell me , \ she repl ied simp ly . \Well then , it was no other than Hi tty. Yesterday I had occasion to go into the pa rlor , which, as you know , Mrs. Prime o pens onl y on great days. Hitty was with me , and she ran up to tho sofa and said , 'Don 't touch my moneys , dadd y 1' 'Where are your moneys , daughter?' I asked. 'In here , ' said Hitty, crawling under the so fa, I looked under , and there in tho dark corner was my money in three neat p iles. As nearly as I can find out , Hitty took the money from the drawer some time that after- noon and carried it into the parlor , where she played with it awhile and then hid it under tho sofa and forgot all about it till she went into the room with mo yester- day. So you see , my own daug hter was the thief after all. \ - . \I . remember finding her in there , now , \ responded Moll y, \thoug h I had forgotten it-before. u \Well , Molly, \ said tho captain , ris- ing, \Mrs. Prime misses her swift hand- maiden. When will you come back?\ \Never!\ said a new voice , and Robin , who had entered unobserved , came for- ward and stood beside the blushing g irl. \She is going to be married ns soon as she gets her wedding finery made. \ - \Oho!\ laug he d the captain , \that is the way the wind blows , is it f > Well , welll I shall give you a wedding present when the time comes. \ And with these words and a bow to Mrs. Gowen , he left the house. Robin would take no denial this time , so Moll y consented to be married on the first of the following December , and in spite of what he had said , she went bank to. her work ,. the following day, Mnu .Jj \ ~M % „ # i ' \ \ ¦ \ /•--? 5 5-'~;' . ^&J _ » ¦ ' • « ^ « £ V : Mii i« i i; - j . ¦ t Prime and Hitty were o verjoyed to see her, and she was ha ppy once more. When , in November , she finished work and went homo to get re ad y for tho wed- d ing, M rs. Prime gave her a gold eag le besides her wages , then cal ling her into the keep ing room showed her a beautiful silk dress l y ing on tho table. \There , dear , \ said she , \is your wed- din g d ress. \ Moll y gazed at it for a moment in s peechless admiration , then turning to her mistress with swimming eyes she cried out: \Oh , Mrs. Prime ! how good you all arc to me 1 This is too lovel y I\ \Notliing is too good for 3 - ou , Moll y, \ said Mrs. Prime , fondl y. The wedding day da wned bright and fa ir. Capt. and Mrs. Prime were pres- ent , and a fter tho ceremony the captair. put a slip of paper into Molly ' s hand , say ing: \Here ' s your wedding present , my dear. \ Tho pape r proved to lie a check for $300 , a great fo rtune for tho simp le g irl. Mol l y often visited her friends , the Primes , and in a few years a little girl named Hannah went with her.

In the Ashantee war o f 1S73 , Mr. Prior ' s fi rst field work , occurred one of those fortunate events which brave men ascri be to luck aud fair men to p luck. The Forty-seco nd regulars were attack- ing the Ashantees in tho bush. Pr ior , right in the thick of it , made a hasty sketch , s howing the gleam of bayonets through tho rifle smoke , tho flash of the blacks ' guns from the undergrowth , tho tips of British muskets emerg ing hero and t here from the fiery vapor of battle , the assail ants firing in all sort s of atti- tudes , some running to the front , others l y ing under a protecting tree , others sti ll kneeling by the horses from whie.li they had just dismounted. These were the hazy outlines or bold dashes of an artist soldier under fire. There was no time to make a p icture before tho mail left for the coast. So he for warded tlie sketch, still reeking with rifle smoke , to the home office , with a hasty note asking The Illustrated News to work it up info a finished cartoon. But the home ofi' i c e did nothing of tho sort. Instead , they published the ske tch just as it left his penc il. And it is conceded to this day to bo one o f tho greatest triumphs of a special' s work under d ifficulties , and one of the most thrilling battle pictures ever seen, —John Paul Bocock in New York W orld ¦VA ' IK A D VKHTIS EM F .ST.: Chas .

IT IS BEYOND QUESTION th a t Br oo kl yn is more accessible than New York to residents of L ong Island towns for shopp ing purposes. It is also be- y o nd question that we can offer more advantages to custo- mers than can be found in any other store either in York or Brookl yn , because we possess superior facilities for getting the newe st and best of everything at the lowest prices. Our forei gn offices and home organization keep us constantl y sup- p lied with the mo st desirable goods. We divide with our customers the advantages we have obtained , b y s e lling them g oods cheaper than they can be purchased anywhere else . W e make it a point neve r to permit any misrepresentation as t o a nything o ff e r e d b y us , eith e r in o ur a d v erti s ements o r over the counter Our new store has no equal in either New York or Brook- l yn , it being the largest , li g htest , an d most convenient and best ventil ated establishment of its kind. It is nearer to the L o ng Island Railroad depot than any other large store, and i s therefore sooner reached b y Long Island peop le. New goods , including many novelties not obtainable else- where , are added dail y to our alread y unequaled assortments- Vi sitors to our establishment should not fail to see every department . Broad aisles vender it an easy matter to pass around , and four large elevators are always read y to convey persons from floor to floor.

HUM Wishes to inform the public that he ia pre- pared to protect from lightning any and all who will have his m u fpietic Electric Cable Conductors placed upon thi - irbnildings. As a demonstration of this fact , SO YEA R S' n ?I j I A .L Of the same without a failure is sufficient. Thousands of buildiugs here on Long Island have been protected with the cables, and an proof we havo hundreds of sample points and rods that have been fused or melted off from one inch to ten feet; besides I have written testimonials from the parties , that had it not been for the rods their dwellin g s and perhaps their lives would have been de- stro y ed; and it gi ves me pleasure to show both the testimonials and samples of tho melted points and rods. My improved Pat- ent Cable is really two rods in one;— it consists of u copper cable within a galvanized iron one , niak i u u The Strongest Conduct That can posssibly be obtained. It has :' , ¦< inches conducting surface , being the l a ree r- t caliber of any rod now manufactured, lie- sides we obviate all the trouble of joints and liabilities of disconnections , wherein mo s t of the trouble arises with all jointed rnds , to say nothing of the rust , paint and oxidation which all help to decrease their conductin g power.
