' i  i  ' I1  El -- v  ���.. i_  ���  i  b    ,  Life is a great desire. From the  [try of the new-born infant to the sigh  J��f the departing soul there is a reach-  tag out, a longing after, a never satisfied desire, for something beyond,the  attainment of the present moment.  The soul of man -is so constituted  tfiat it cannot rest satisfied in itself. Tt  seeds some object which it may desire  is the "sumnuim bomtm," the highest  Kood, the all-satibifying .end, the final  happiness. In order to .live one must  Hesire.  1 There is an old saying, "As long as  Hiere is life there is hope." We can  tehange that and say just as truly, "As  long as there is hope there is life."  i Without hope, without desire, life soon  fails, because life is but a boundless  ,    bope,  a  great   desire,   ,an    unfulfilled  finest <-  <       We know that it sometimes happens  that the flickering light of life in -some  soul is kept alive by the power of an  intense desire���that   when  the  animal  strength is all gone and science looks  lor the end there comes a new power  to the rescue of the soul struggling for  * longer respite, and.the spark of life  it kept burning until the desire has been  jgratified,  until the message  has been  given or the face of the beloved on*  has been looked upon once again ere  '*���   lire fainting soul falls asleep.    And so  "   It is with the life olf the world. Without hope, without longing, without this  innate   and    nevei failmg   desire,   the  world would fall c asleep and all things  *rouId be as at the beginning. But when  Cod created the heaven aiid the earth,  )R'hen in the eternities of the past there  tame forth the power of life, there was  wrapped  up  in  that genesis   the propelling,   uplifting,   expanding   force   of  �� great desire.    Never could that life  remain yilent or passive; it must, con-  *����cious2y or   unconsciously,   reach  out,  - Jong after, work for some end in the  eternities of the future So "through  Ihe ages one eternal pin pose runs."  Let us understand, then, that our life  is made up olf desucs���ihat we are the  fcreatures of,a hope which passeth our  ���,_ Understanding; that we arc tho pioduct  - R aJ V1C pabl e^cns of life to reach  (Sts final destiny; that wc arc the con-  seivers of the energies by which future generations shall be enabled to  ���reach the goal of then quest.  '.Let us realize that'our happiness in  this woild, that our life in the future  ,-world, that our contnbution to the life  of the ages to follow, all depend upon  the choice and direction of our present  desires.   Let us giasp this fact and we  ' nvill tremble ere we choose the thing  ,t,:?.t 5-lall be supiemo in our thought  and life.  ! There have always been two ways by  which man has lncd to gain for himself  the 'desire of life. The first has been  by collecting and surrounding himself  (With things that will minister to his  physical well-being. This is the prim-  try and lowest conception of happiness.  (We can trace it back to the earlier  Btages of life, and it probably arose  Jrom the instinct of self-preservation.  (The other way that man has tried to  satisfy this yearning for a moie perfect Me is the cultivation of the interject and the widening of the horuon of  knowledge. Neither in the gratification  of the physical nor in the development  ef the intellectual has man found the  ttnd for which he exists.  I 'And now we turn, to the Great Interpreter of Life, the One who is Himself ''the Way and the Truth and tlie  Life." What did He make the supieme  ��nd  all-imporlant  think in   life ?   The  Snswer comes without hesitation, the  oing of the will of God. "Jesus saith  junto them, My meat is to do the will  pf ITim that sent Me, and to finish His  ;iyoik." The world has never seen a  life so perfectly happy, "because no  tothcr life has been so entirely in accord with the divine will Jesus Christ  leamc not only lo reveal, but to do the  h-ill of the Falhcr.nnd because lie gave  Himself in perfect obedience there  mus^ have come to Him the perfect  happiness.  I We can realise the Desire of life.  WC can attain unto perfect happiness  only in so far as we give ottiselves lo  Ihe doing of tlie will of God. There  is no other way. Everything must be  made subordinate and contributory to  this one supreme aim, to do the will  pf God. Everything that conflicts with  the will of God as revealed through  Jesus Christ must be given up without  iquestion if we arc to enter into tlie  fulness of life; such as the-Gospel of  Christianity.  The message is that happiness and  heaven and the fulness of life with God  are yours when you can say with the  Kfaster, "My meat is to do the will of  Him, that sent Me, and to finish'His'  work."  hearlfs delight would not have failed lilm  Id the matter of lattci-wilting, ieceived  nothing at all. The .explanation, though  hardly solacing, was simple enough. It  seemq that tho last twputy miles of the  Lartop mall journey ii performed bv mule  diligences and a hungiy mule had en-  leavored to saUfcfy the cravings oi an  M-npty -"-torn ich with the outpourings of  aYine-hoaxta. ..  m - *-*  Cost of Pasteurizing-.  Experiments conducted at the Royal  Experiment    Station   in   .Copenhagen  prove that if a pasteuriser is properly  constructed   and   properly   operated   it  will require about 90 pounds of steam  for Iteating 1,000 pounds of milk   fiom  90 te 185 de;.-    es F., says M. Morten-  son.  If we   ligtuc  that  it takes    one  pound of coal to piodupe lour pounds  of steam, to produce ninety pounds of  steam will   then  require 23 pounds  of  coal.   Figuring, cqal at $4 per ton, and  ourlbutter yield 4 1-2 pounds butter to  100 pounds milk, makeb the cost of pasteurizing  one  pound of  butter  about  one-tenth   of  a   cent.      This  expense  however,   is  reduced  considerably    by  pasteurizing the  cream    and  skimmed  milic   separately.     The   cream   is   reduced to  such  a     small  amount tbat  the  expense   per  pound .will   be   very  little.    For pasteurization of skimmed  milk the exhaust steam  can be -used ;  this is also more satisfactory to    the  patr(on, as milk when pasteurized after  skiniming is warm enough to scald the  cans, and the milk keeps sweet longer.

At   the   Arkansas   Agricultural   Et-  i      * . ���  perlmental   Station   experiments   have  been conducted to determine the cflecls  of systematic thinning of tomato ciops  on jthe size cf the fruit.  In cultivating the plants under tual,  all 1 lateral   branches   below   the   first  cluster  of  blossoms   were   pi lined  off  with a shaip knife     The plants were  tied to stakes, and  the  lot that were  allowed    to   pioduce   what fruit they  would   received   no   fm.thcr   attention  than the  neccssaiy  cultivation   of  the  surrounding   soil   and   occasional re-  tying to the stakes as the plants grew.  The.plants were all spiayed occasionally    with    boideaiix   mixture,    and  while   the   leaves    and    stems    were  , wet with sprry were dnstcd^wilh pan-.  crccu-mixed with  font parts  of flour  < or roa<lN dust     The thinned lot were  given the oamo tieatment, except that  not more than thice f .ms weic allow-  d to remain on one clustei, and generally only two.    The thinning was done  as ioon as  the young tomatoes  were  half or   Ihrce-quauers.  of  an   inch   111  diameter.   The dead blossoms were re-  mbved as soon as possible to prevent  deforming.    Frecjuenlly ihe young tomatoes,   when   not   moie   than   onc-  foiuth of an inch \\\  diameter,  would  shoiV an irregular nr improper shape,  and this was of considciable advantage  in enabling the selection  of only  the  best fruit to remain on the vines.   The  thinning was done with a sharp knife  * Deficient rainfall and excessive high  temperature during the season affected   he  thinned plots  less  than  those  not thinned,  since  a  majority  of  the  frui: oa the former had ripened very  early.  Tie tomatoes grown were mostly  large kinds, Mikado, Ponderosa, Stone,  Favorite, Imperial. On the thinned  vines the average number of fruit per  vine was 9.7, the average weight of  frui: per vine was 9 57 pounds and the  average weight of each tomato was  15.82 pounds. On the uiithinned vines  the average number of iruit per vine  was 24.6, the avciagc weight of fruit  per vine was 10 60 pounds, the average  weight of each tomato being 686  pounds. While the wcigliL of ciop was  decreased one-tenth by thinning, tlie  bulk would have been about the same,  as large tomatoes  fill up fastci.  These results are intciestmg, as  showing what can be done in the way  of producing large tomatoes. For  commercial rcquti umcnis cnorni'nt--;  fruits arc not so much tct|uncd nor  so profit ible as an ev.m giadc of  medium size, the b.iyer Inug influenced more bv the weight of the case 1I1117  anything  c!"c.  Who Are the Eattenbergs ?  Of the many millio-ii of people ruled  hy King Edward it ,is very doubtful  whether more than line or two hundred have a clear 'idea of the size  of' England's royal family, taking  into account the descendants' of  George UX's, thiee sonu, the  Dukes of Kpntj 'Cumberland *nd  Cambridge. To the jreat majority of  people it is a complete puzzle. Even in  Victorian time**- there 'Were numbers ol  persons in this countn* absorbed to such  an extent in minding pheir own business  and that of their neir neighbors that,  theugh instinctively h'yal to their good  Queen, and well contint to be her subjects, they could ne'er remember the  names of Her Majcst"'** children beyond  the flist three���the lrincesa Royal, the  Prince of Wales and Prince Alficd.  " As for Queen Viclo'-iu's grandchildren,  especially those whos'- fathers weie foreign princes, the avcilge Briton "gave it  up" if asked where thc,IIessians or Christians came from, and vhether any one of  them had a chance of Ihe English ciown.  As regards the young Battenbergs, a disposition prevails to-diy to class all of  them as belonging to Princess Beatrice,  ���whom many benighted creatures imagine  to be the mother of P.ineoss Alice, lately  betrothed to Prince Andrew of Greece.  In reality  theie art  two Battenberg  sets���tluce sons and  one daughter, the  children  of  the latejPrince Henry and  our late Queen's younjest daughter; and  two sons and two daughters, the children  of Prince Louis and Princess Victoria of  Hesse,  the  latter  being  one  of' Queen  Victoria's   foreign   granddaughters     To  this second group dots Princess Alice of  Battenberg   belong; [and   Princess   Bea  trice, instead  of  behg her  mamma,  i**-  her great-aunt and atlnt-in-law combined  The interesting young pcoplo included in  tho  two  families    are    really  Genna.11  Highnesses of but minor degiee; but the  great affection felt for them by our lute  Queen seems to eln'sg litem among "the  rest of the royal family" prayed for if  England's Established Chinch, and mosl  people wish them well, even though ha/.j  over their real minim und titles.  So fai, only one| of Queen Victoria'  great-gianddaughters is married ��� Prin  cess Feodoia of Saxeileiningen, who be  came Princess Hem'-jr XXX. of Reuss ii  1808, when  she  wrfs" nineteen years  ol  age.

Despite frantic efforts  to lure him into conversation, it was not  until he rose to put on his coat that he  made the first and last remark that he  uttered during the evening: "Weel, this  is the first' t *��� ne I've over had dinner  with three editors."  James Lam Allen, the Kentucky novelist, is a man of more than average size,  and, what is not common to all Ken-  tuckians,  is   always  apparelled   in   the  best form.- One evening he stopped in a  small ahop just around the corner from  the quarter*, into which he had moved  only a few days hefore, and made a. few  purchases amounting to a dollar or so  When be  came  to pay,  he  discovered  that he had left his purse at home. t Hr  Explained to the shopkeeper, and askeel  that he bo trusted for the goods unti'  next  morning, as  he was  in  a hurrj  and could not wait.   The shopkeeper declined to let the goods go without Hit  money.   Mr. Allen was nettled.    "Do 1  look like a man who would try to 'beat'  youf" he asked with indignant dignity.  "Of    oo-urso     you    don't,'  replied   the  'shopkeeper, admiringly.   '"If .you-, did  I  wouldn't have botticred with you in th��  Irat place.    It isn't that  kind  I have  to bo on the everlasting lookout for."  '   In his reminiscences in  tl)�� "Cenluri  Magazine," Andrew Dickson Whito, late  United States Ambassador to Germany,  repeats an anecdote told him  by Hon.  Odo Russell, the British plenipotentiary  at Berlin.   Russell was on one occasion  making a call on Prince Bismarck, and  the conversation turned on the subject of  bores, and how to got rid of them.   Bis-  tnarok said that he and his wlfo had hit  upon an ��xi)<dient, and whenever an ur-  welcome caller was wasting his time it  officiating pasto- was present. ���* After  every course hejiaiscd his glass and exclaimed "My children, with this you must  drink some wine" The turn of dessert  arriving, he repeated his injunction tor  the tenth time, [igain setting-the example himself.l "Pardon, Monsieur le Cure,"  one of the guests interrupted, "but .with,  what do you not]drink wine?"

But the more he examined Into the^ matter, tho deeper  end more dangerous he found the.plana  that had been laid for his destruction.,  Who defences he had imag-lned so lm-'  pregnable had been undermined In a  ���dozen places. Leb*. Saclcett had been  ���none too cautious In some of his statements as to the nature of his engagement with the lawyer, and witnesses  stood ready to come forward and unfold the plot to lid Rolff House of the  protection of Call Crum and old Margaret. Moreover, tho tools the lawyer  . Sad used as wltnosfos'of his irregular  papers had ,been tampered with, he  ���found, and were not to he .relied upon  In case- they were brought under the  oross-questlonira of a sharp lawyer.  Look which way he would, lawver  Baybiou'c saw defeat and disgrace  "--"������fiAiajlinf.** him, and the door of a felon's  -cell, to his feaifu!-liiid.^ination. stood  yawning to receive him.- His confidjnjo  and shrewdness desei ted him. He became demoralized and almost Imbecile  In splat.  Kali h vainly sought to encourage  Slim.  "No, no, Ralph," he said, as' they  were discussing the matter in the office, "I can see no gleam of hope In  this matter. I tell you our case Is completely riddled. There Isn't a ghost ot  - a, show. Everything depended-on there  ���-being: no direct witnesses against us.  , 'Owing to my cursed recklessness and  rtrant of th-e most ordinary forethought,  that Infernal traitress not only has  knowledge ot all our plans, but has  -been the means of furnishing other  ���clues against us. Everything ' has  "worked wrong. I put too much confidence in the war shutting off Claude,  ���nd in his weakness of character. I  ��� never expected to see him show such  vigorous fight It's too bad���too badl  iWe are doomed to be beaten. I can.see,  It. I dare not contemplate,the consequences. "Unless something more hopeful turns up���but, no, there can be no.  bope. It Is Idle for us to delude our-  eelv����. Fate is against us. If It hadn't  been for that devil-haunted house-!���  Ralph, Z am growing superstitious.  fSres.' yea���popular legend is ' right.'  ���Mono but a Rolff can ever Inherit that  ��� property. - Don't tell me���look how  ���very plan we have set In motion has  been foiled in some strange and mysterious manner. I have been too sceptical. Some occult power is leagued  ���against ua. We must give up the fight.  IWe must B& v ourselves, if we ���'can."  "But what are we to do?" demanded  JJRalph.  f "I don't know yet,. Ralph. I must  think���I must think. We can run  away, I suppose."  "What,    and    give   up    everything,  (without a single wanly blow?   I would  rather do anythlnk than that   How do  iwe know but that, by making a good  ' 'flght, there is hope for us yet?"  "No, no, Ralph; my spirit is hopeful  ���too hopeful generally;-. but it is mad-  neas to deceive ourselves on this point  They can send me to prison. It's a  ���criminal offence. Halstead Is too sharp  siot to see the point he has got against  , me. He'll Institute a criminal suit���see  If he don't"  "And must we abandon everything���  sacrifice all we have got���and go out"  In the world like beggars! Hang ltl  I'd rather shoot myself."    v  "So would I, Ralph. But we won't  tilave to. You are not really concerned  *n this, and the responsibility cannot  be made to .lie against you. Matters  ��an be arranged so that you will be all  ���right In fact, If X was to abscond and  allow the Buit already begun toT go  Against * me by default, I think that  ���would be the end of the matter. All  _ my property would be put in your  bands and disposed of at your leisure,  ��nd we oould make a "���sw start In some  ���ether section. It's a'Lard choice, but  I am not disposed to stand the chances  of ending up my days in a penitentiary."  ' Disgusted and disappointed as Ralph  Hvas at the total collapse of the plans  that had promised such brlllland fortune, he waa unable to combat hla  father's fears successfully. At times  Itho lawyer would show a temporary  return of spirit, but it would be quickly succeeded by a new fit of depression.  In fact, Anthony Saybrook was Ilka  many a keen rogue, bold to plot and  execute so long as success smiled on  dim, but easily worried and frightened  under misfortune. Convinced that-the  lawyer Claude had secured to press his  ���emit was skillful and determined, and  bad hold of very dangerous testimony  Against him, he had no heart to await'  the issue, which he felt sure Clauda  ���was in a mood to push to the utmost  ���extremity.  However, he made a show of carrying on a vigorous light; boasted on tho  streets that he would win an easy victory; and apparently was prepared to  Contest every inch of ground in defending his character and holding on  to the property be had so strangely  acquired.  Finally the day arrived when the  ffreat suit of Rolff vs. Saybrook wa��  to be opened. There was much publla  excitement over it, and the court-roonl  iwas thronged. But, when the case was  called there was no response from in*  'defence. Inquiry -was made, and it was  found that Ralph Saybrook was at  borne; but he stated that his father had  aadclled his horse and ridden from town  the previous night and had not return*,  ���d. He did not know where he had  gone or^how soon he would return. Foi j  himself, he could only say that tlu  management of the estate was entirely,  tn his father's hands; he knew little ot  nothing of the matter; and he was not  prepared to put in any'.answer, till his  father's return.      ' j  The case was postponed; but, as days  passed'by, and Anthony Saybrook did  not reappear, It became evident that H��  had run away to escape the conse- i  ^Quences of his orooked acts, and ca  Judgment went against him by default, /  Ralph Saybrook had not_been__sued  jointly with his father, as suggested bj  Claude's lawyers, for the reason thai  the young man considered' the father  the instigator   and manager    ot  tha  ���frnoie scneme or fraud, and possessel  too'fine a sense of honor to allow it" to  be said of him that he desired to injure  anybody out of mere spirit of Jealousy.  Having asserted his right to his patri  mony, and secured a reversal of all tho'  wronglattempted against him, he wa '  not disposed to be revengetul.   His hatred vanished, and, in its place, came a  dull apathy and melancholy.    He had  succeeded���but to what purpose?    H  abased himself to make another appeal  to.farmer Bruyn; but only .to be rudely;  rebuffed.   The old man was of too ob  stlnate a nature to yield easily in a'  matter where he had committed himself so strongly and Claude made the  mistake of  showing  too  great eager  ness, and going to him before the dis  gust and disappointment 'at the failure  of the/schemes he had set,such great  store by had worn off.   Farmer Bruyn,  did not lack in a certain coarse kind of  conscientiousness.    He had really dis  trusted and suspected Claude's character, and flattered himself that his efforts to control Rosa's future had been ���  actuated by a fatherly "regard for her'  welfare.    Though surprised and almos   '  stunned by the absconding of Anthony  Saybrook, the flight of. that-'individual,  and the consequent derangement of tho  plans  he   had   cherished," he  was-.too  honest not to see that these events did  riot the least affect the opinion he had  held of Claude.   To change his attitude,  now was to convict himself of hasty  and unreasonable judgment, and to lay  himself open to the, suspicion of'being  merely    mercenary, - ' and    the    bluff,  wrong-headed   old  fellow  was   not   ir  the  least  disposed   to  make- such   admissions, and| as has been stated,  re  buffed Claude's approaches  with  even  mora than his former curtness.  enable  1  m   to.  disappointment  '   ,        CHAPTER XXXI.  ���The events detailed in the past chapters had occupied the fall months, and  winter had again arrived.  For awhile, Claude found occupation  enough to keep himself from total despondency. Pie had much to do to  straiguten his affairs, but under the advice and with the assistance of lawyer  Halstead, he was enabled to meet obligations falling due by issuing -new  mortgages and disposing of outlying  portlcns of the estate.   (  Claude went .through with all thi3  business 'wearily and mechanically.  His hsalth had been restored in a measure; ]and, feeling himself once more  master of Rolff House, his pride and  spirit returned, subdued only by "the  experiences he had passed through  The career of study and travel he had  marked out for himself had come to  a sudden -end; he cculd not interest  himself in "the business and pleasures  of the little place; and his ardent spirit  fretted and 'soured under the ill-for  tune that seemed to baulk nig chief  desire. There was but one object that  now absorbed his hopes and ambition  ���and that'object was sweet, patient  faithful Rosa Bruyn. The young man's  short experience as a student of art  abroad, and ' the knowledge that he  was shut out for the time from all hope  of carrying out his ambitious projects,  had dulled the edge of his enthusiasm  for travel and study, and it was natural, at his years, that, foiled in every  other outlet to his abundant energy  and spirit, he should surrender himself  completely to the beguiling passion ot  love.  He could dream only of Rosa Bruyn.  He caught a furtive glimpse of her occasionally, and saw she was growing  fairer, though paler than of yore, and  with a meln of settled sadness that cut  him to thre heart How willingly could  he now resign every other thought of  ambition or happiness to throw him*  taelf at her feet! '  Claude could not resist once more*  communicating with her. He wrot��  her a long, passionate letter, bewailing  the fate that separated them, declaring his -unchanging love,"and vowing'  that he would be faithful forever, and  would wait while life lasted for Fortune to smile on their happiness and  crown their union. He wished her to  give him a like pledge, for he had plans  in view that might take him from the  place for years; indeed, he might never  xeturn; but, whatever fate overtook,  he wished to carry with him the assurance that she could be his, and  only his, while life lasted.  This letter he entrusted to old Carl  lo deliver and bring him an answer  and in the course of two or three days  the old fellow handed him the follow"  ing brief reply from Rosa:  My Dearest Claude: It was not  (Wrong for you to write to me-; nor can  I think it wrong for me to reply this  jonce -without my mother's knowledge  xor I think' she would gi/e her consent  ���most readily.

But.he was resolved on  Inot staying longer that, he could help  ���in the little village. I e felt that the  'only thing-that could  .bear the sorrow and  wringing his heart was excitement and  notion. His country wis in the Ihroes  of a terrible war; rdisaster had fallen  ���upon her arms; the call for help from  .all patrlotio sons resounded through  the land. Claude was naturally of a  geneious nature In which the spii It  of patriotism would find easy root. lie  felt that his country needed his services, and 'his restless,, eager nature,  If retting under disappointed, hope, was  ready to face any danger or bear any  privation that would tupply stimulus  to his moping spirits. Ho put himself  |ln communication with the military au  thorities of the State, and, having the  opportunity to take a; position "as or'  ^erly, in which he'surmised he could  render efficient service," he resolved to  accept it, and give his services to hla  country. - r ,     ���  , With  this resolve ln�� .made hurried  preparations to settle his business at-'  fairs.   He determined to install old Carl'  and Margaret in the great house again;  made careful arrangements for the dis-  i ��� ^ ���  position of Mb property, If he should  taever return; and, on^the a.pproach of  the New,, Tear, was' ready to join tho  army-at Its winter .headquarters,  i .But he recollected* his promise to^be  at the old vault on New* Year's day,  and so delayed his deiarture for a few  daya^ '    '' I ' '  Tha first day of the, New Tear soon  arrived, and Claude proceeded to the  old house to observe whether the expected sign had appeared on the door  of-'the old'vault.'' He'had not'entered  the old mansion ' before since his.de*  parture for Europe.  :l  It was    with 'a beating, heart, .and  many   recollections   crowding  on   him,  that he again  traversed the old hall,  and procuring a light, proceeded dowa^  to the old cellar.   ��� ," I     "  Entering It, tie'was quickly'at , the  door of the old vault Here the traces"  'of Leb. ,Sackett's abortive 'attempt to  break Into It-attracted his attention"for_  a moment Then,'casting his eye icru-  ���tlnizingiy over the door, ho noticed in  each of the four corners a small white  cfoss, plainly painted on the dark  stone.  It was the sign his aunt had told  him, to await. At last, the time had  arrived when the secret of the old vault  was to be removed. . The prohibition  had ended. He recalled to mind tho  mysterious roll his aunt had given him,  and resolved to proceed at once to  learn its contents.  CHAPTER XXXII.  Returning-to his room at the tenant  house occupied by Carl * Crum,1" Claude  opened' his trunk anil took out the roll  of manuscript left him by his aunt,  which, in his eagerness to carefully preserve, he had kept with him in all wanderings.  He then drew a clalr'up to a table  standing near the w ndow, and, sitting  down, placed the roll on the table before him and examined it narrowly. It ',  was sealed heavily. The superscription '  read: "To my dea* nephew, Claude  Rolff: To be opened only according to  promise."  Claude had often studied these words  before, and longed for the time that  would make him master of the secrets  of the roll communicated to him under such, mysterious circumstances. At  last he could conscientiously and properly gratify his curiosity. He bioke  the seals, and spread the sheets of pa-'  per out on the table before him. The  paper was heavy foolscap, and a glance  showed him that the writing was in the  cramped, peculiar rand he knew well  to be his aunt's.  He at once became ��� absorbed. In the  contents-of the manuscript It read as  follows:  My Dear Claude: At my death you  will be left alone In the world���the  only surviving representative of your  blood and race. Both in the old world  and the new, every one that could  claim near kin to ycu will have passed  away. To the end that you may knowi  your birth and lineage (of which you  have been purposely kept In partial ignorance); that strange matters, which  common report has greatly exaggerated and misrepresented, may be correctly reported to you; and that my action  toward you, my 'dear child, under  which I have often observed you were  restive, may be justified in your eyes���  i write these lines. I  It Is over sixty years ago, that there  was living in the picturnsque old city  Of Haarlem, in our mother country of  North Holland, an aged and reputable  burgher, one Rolff Van Buysen, who,  ���With his good wife, his handsome son  named from himself, and a single  daughter (the writer of these lines),  lived an happily as it is given mortals  to live. He had been an only son;  had passed an industrious youth; had  married rather late In life; and at this  period was wealthy, honored with important trusts In his native city, and  ���was noted for his public spirit, Us  philanthrophy and his patronage of  the arts and sciences. His son RolfC  grew to manhood; but, being of a  restive, wayward disposition, wa3 not  inclined to settle down Into the practice of some useful art or profession as  ' his father desired him to. On the contrary, his only wish seemed to be to  spend his father's substance in extrav-  aganoe and riotous living. Great was  tho grief of the tender f**,nd excellent  father over the waywardness of his  son, and he. sought by all means to  restore him to obedience and a proper  life. But his efforts were of no avail.  The son grew wilder and more reckless,  and finally threw off all semblance of  respect for'hls father's,authority and  wishes.' And so'it came to pass that  the good father, though of the kindest  , and  tenderest  nature,    became    fully  ' persuaded of 'his duty to compel the  obedience and respect,to his wishes of  his son, and assumed toward him 'a  stern demeanor, though, in truth, his  heart was wounded and bled sorely for  him. But Rolff only grew more ungov-  ernable, and finally became involved In  a difficulty that'rendered him amenable',  to the law. ' It was a reckless, boyibh'  freak, committed against the property  ��f a high official of the city, and'his  father's influence was no longer available to save him from arrest and trial.  Bitter and stern was-the'rebuke that  Rolff's father administered to him; but  the law officers were on his track, ,and  he fledfrom his home in the night, and  many weary years passed, and he was  not again heard from by his aged and  sorrowing parents. 'The blow, indeed,  was too heavy for their declining years,  and it was not long before the tender  mother had gone ,to-hei- final rest and  her faithful husband, with the last prop  of ,his life taken away, did'not llngei  long behind her. "    ���  So it 'was, my, dear Claude, that I  was left alone in'the world, not, knowing that I had a single relative of near  kin left, for on both my'father's and  mother's side all had passed away savo  a few'distant and to me unknown kln-  , dredj'and, though I hoped 'my brother  was still , alive,  It seemed idle  to  do  BO. *     �� '", -  After my fathers affairs were settled  I still,had left a comfortable fortune,  and lived a quiet and lonely life in my  native city, Indulging in few pleasures,  and cherishing the one.hope that I  would yet hear from my brother." At  length, to my'great joy, there oame'a  ���lef.er from1 him. * In it he stated "that  he had settled 'in the New World; had  grown rich/ and married, and was then  living .In a fine-mansion; but his wlf<  had died, leaving him with two small  1 children, and he had no proper person  to take charge of them, or of his house,  hold..  So he entreated me to come "to  .him���saying" that ho-had heard"of our  parents' deaths, and believed me still  to be unmarried. . He said he would  make  me  the  entire_ mistress  of  hii  ���aoumnoia and,guardian of hla children,  and that I should have, oomplete -.disposal ' of all ,that he possessed. ' The  tone of the'letter indicated, great grief  and despondency, and niy/heart was,  touched.' After careful consideration,'  I deefded to go_to_my brother. Arranging aH-myaffairs,- and getting alTneed-'  ful information from "further 'Lcorres-'  pondence with him, I set sail for the  New World. , >'  In due time I arrived at my brjther'3  house. I found him living in almost  princely style; but afflicted with incurable grief and melancholy. His infant  daughter had died ere I arrived. His  inind seemed affected at losing his wife  and child; and, in parozysms of sorrow  and self-abasement, he would curse  himself, and cry out.that the vengeance  of Heaven was visited on him for his  crimes. Naught I could do would corn-  fort him. He was completely changed  ���broken, penitent and^despondent. H*  confessed to me strange stories of evil  deeds he had done���how, after coming  to this country, he had(joined a privateer, and amassed wealth, but in his'  warlike adventures had participated  in crimes the memory of which was  burned upon his conscience, and could  not be forgotten. I was compelled to  take complete charge of his affairs; and  he freely gave me the power and right  bo to do. I had brought with me my  own little fortune, and, alarmed and  horrified at the stories he told of the  manner in which he had procured^ his  wealth, I determined to use none of It,  but to make my own' money available  for the maintenance of the household.'  Meantime, my brother grew more and  more melancholy. To divert his mind,  I talked to him of plans to expiate  bis evil life. I urged him to use a portion of his wealth in charity and good  works. The idea seemed to please him,  and he soon beoame filled with plans* to  travel, seek out the miseries of the unfortunate and to-relieve'them. In pursuance of this plan, he charged 'me  with the oare and education of his son.  placed all his property and fortune In)  my hands subject only to my promlsu  to supply him with such funds as he  should oak from time to time; and so  he quietly left his home and went I  knew not where.  In tho cellar of his great house, my  brother had built a strong stone vault,  and In this was deposited the money  and .valuables he had not used In. buying or improving his property. Of this  he gave me the key, telling me to use  What I would. But I resolved to touch  not a penny, save only to supply his  demands, and moreover, to place there-(  in all the profits that accrued from-mjj  management of the place���paying onbl  the expenses, and using my own monejl  entirely for every luxury or, necessity'  of my household. After a length of  time, my brother returned secretly,  supplied himself again with money and  left This he did at various times,  never staying over a single night at  his home, and saying nothing of his  plans or purposes.  There came a period of years In  Trtiloh I did not hear from him. His  eon had grown to manhood, married,  and you were born, my dear Claude,  and named by me. My brother returned once again, and looked upon your  Infant faoe. He had grown old and  feeble, and told me that he had at last  found peace In religion, having Joined  a soeiety of brothers, in a French monastery, where his life was devoted te  .works of pharlty and to. penitenee.   He  examined carefully into his affairs, ana  ai-ranged that, in case of his death, a  certain portion of his fortune should  go into the hands of the brethren,of  his society. Though I had been reared  in the strictest Protestant faith, I  could not condemn the life in which,  my brother found hope and peace, and  I agreed to all his wishes, ���    '"*  He went away ag*aln; and years  passed" on. Tour father and mother  died, my dear Claude, and I was left  as your only guardian.     ���   '  One dark night,'at a late hour, as I '  was sitting in my room, there oame a '  knocking at' the.door of the house.
