Who  Would Surely Have
Whipped Him
HADNOTMcVEYOOMEIN
Sharkey Was in Better Form Than Oorbett
tnd the Latter's Seoonda Saw Defeat
and Broke the Rules.
New York, Nov. 23.���Commenting
upon the Sharkey-Oorbett fiasco nnd
the action of MoVey iu jumping iu the
ring, the Sun today says: "Tbe soli:-
tion that seems most logical with a
majority wss that there waB a fear iu
the Corbett comer ilmt lie might be
beaten summarily, aud that by breaking the rules in tbis way ho oould lose
the fight in a manner th%t would not
bring discredit upon his reoord Tbere
waa 110 doubt iu the nine rounds Sharkey wns stronger, more aggressive un1
more powerful in notion than Oorbett.
The latter boxed in the oleverest possible manner and scored repentedly on
Shnrkey's faoe and body.but thore was
no stenm in hiB punches nnd those
who had seeu him whip Sullivan six
years ngo said he bnd gone baok. He
did not look as strong as when he appeared in the Madison square garden
just prior to his meeting with Sullivan. Be looked drawn, his legs wero
thin aud his body did not seem to bn
as muscular as it used to be. In fact,
after the fight had gone a oouple of
rounds, there were many Corbett men
in tha house who feared -the worst.
All the punching that Oorbett could
give Sharkey had no effect on him.
Oorbett lauded squarely ou the point
of the jaw with both hands ou several
occasions, but he oould not phase thc
sailor. The lntter on the other hand
put in some tremendous smashes on
Corbett's head nnd body, which undoubtedly made the lntter fearful of
tho result.
"It was in view of nil this tbat the
inpression gained ground that Oor-
b t 's handlers belioved tbat he might
1 ejbenten. There is no question of
doubt thnt ho eoald uot stop Sharkey
inside the limit, for in the 8th round
he fought himself nlmost out, landed
the hardest blows of the fight, nnd yet
found the smlor bobbing up in front
of him just tbe same."
RYAN  AND  GORMAN.
They Meet at Syraonse aud the Lntter
is Badly Beaten.
Syracuse, Nov. 28.���Tommy Ryan,
the champion welter weight, went
against Johnny Gorman, of Brooklyn,
before the Monarch Athletio olub, in
this oity tonight, nnd was awarded
the decision by referee "yank" Sullivan, Gorman's mnunger throwing
up the spon. ���"nt the end of the eighth
round of whnt wns to have been n 20
round go. Ryan stnrted in from the
beginning of fight nt Gorman's stomach and wind. In the third round
Gorman landed on Ryans' head several times and warmed the welter
weight ohampion up. Gorman wns
slow but gnme. Ryan's punches on
the wind began to tell in the fifth
round. In the sixth nnd seventh Gorman was severely punished and Rynn
hnd him going when the gong sounded.
Gorman seemed quite fresh when the
eighth round opened, but Rynn went
nt hihl haramiSr and tongs. Gorman
was soon unable to defend himself and
when Rvah lauded with right nud
left hard in the ribs in quiok succesi
sion, Gorman fell to the floor. He
tried to rise, but seemed unabW to do
so. Tbe gong sounded to oount and
his seconds carried him to his corner.
A physioinn examined him and de.
olared that one of his ribs was broken.
Gorman was clearly no mntoh for
Ryan.
OGILVIE IN THE YUKON.
He Has Mnde Reforms at Dnwson Oity
Thnt are Appreciated.
The Dawson City Miner, of Dawson
City, in its issue of Ootober 15, -contains a report of n meeting whioh delegates of the  miners'   committee  had
with Commissioner Ogilvie. Various
matters were discussed, P. R. Ritchie,
of Vancouver, being one of thoso who
took part.
Col. MoGregor asked questions concerning the post office and was told
that nobody except officinls were now
allowed behind the boxes and that a
large amount of work had been done to
facilitate the dispatch of mnil. (Hear,
hear.) Mr. Ogilvie further stated the
pleasing news that letters could be obtained at the Forks by those who gave
tbeir names to the postmaster. It wns
uot neoessary for anybody to pay a
cent to anyone to have their mail delivered but, of course, people could do
so^if jtlieyjlikeil to pay a person to get
their mail for them, but tbat mail
oould only be obtained in the usual
manner now in vogue���namely, in
ront of the boxes.
Dr. McDougall spoke strongly of
many oases of hardship which had occurred to miners through tbe incompetency iu tbe gold cominissoner's
office in which he was supported by
Mr. Armstrong.
Mr. Ogilvie assured the deputation
tbat since coming into (he oountry he
bad done his best to mnke things
straight, (hear, hear), and that when
he foui.d anybody iu the government
employ noting in nny dishonest man
nor be would immediately suspend
him nud, if proven guilty, would mive
Ihe offender punished, Vague charges
had been made ngninst tlie clerks in
the gold commissioner's office; some
definite charges he bad already investigated and acted on thom, and he was
anxious to hnve all thu records made
public as soon as possible so that nny
miner could get into the office and by
paying a very small fee could look tip
the history of every claim. He hoped
shortly to publish a list of vacant
claims for the benefit of the publio.
BLANCO HAS RESIQNEP.
He wishes to Avoid the Dishonor of Sui-
rondo'iug   Ouba to  the  United
Wnshington, Nov. 23.���No surprise
js expressed iu government circles here
nt the news of General Blanco's resignation. It is known thnt some time
ago the general sought to resign the
office of Captain-General of Cuba and
he was induced to retain that post
only by appeals to his patriotism on
tbe part of the Madrid government.
It in supposed thnt his purpose is to
avoid whnt he mav regard ns the dishonor of surrendering the gem of the
Antilles to the United Stntos. The
Caption General of the Philippines
took the same course. General Arolns,
the second in command, is likely to
hnve .the unpleasant duty of surrendering Spanish sovereignty ovor Cuba. Ii
is believed thut Bluuco's notion will
not in nny wny effect tho evncnatioii.
save in the possibility it contains of
inciting trouble nmoiig the Spnuish
troops.

in nn editorial in reference to the
"Open Door" policy in the Philippines
and tht constitutional difficulty it presents to Amorica, says: "In the United States, themselves, opinion is sharply divided over tbe futpre of the Philippines. Enthusiasm for American

The correspondent draws attention
to the fact thnt n section of the German press"hastily assumes thnt America will clnim tbe Sulns" nud suggests thnt this is n point upou which
an understanding with Great Britain,
with a viow to joint aotion, appears
indispensable."

San Franolsco, Nov. 28.���The Baldwin hotel caught fire at 8 :2�� a. m. and
it bus been entirely destroyed. Tbere
were|800 people, guests aud employees,
in the hotel when the fire broke out
and a number of the people are
thought to have lost thoir lives. A.
J. White is one of the victims-, but
before he gave up his life, tho gallant
fellow saved the lives of three women.
The fire is said to have started in the
kitchen, located iu the baaenient, on
the Ellis street side. The fire worked
its way up through tbe flue to the
sixth floor nud before the alarm wns
Bent the fire hnd gained great headway, The flrst nlnrm was followed by
others in rapid succession until fivo
call* had I.een sent in, summoning
every piece of npparatus at the com -
maud of the department. Thousands
of people were attracted by the succession of alarms and the glare of the
burning building and before the polico stretched the cordon ropes, the
orowds al most blockaded Market, Eddy,
Powell snd Ellis streets.
For years the Baldwin has been regarded' by the Are depnrtmeut as the
most dangerous fin-trap in San Francisco. Built of wood, six stories high,
with n unrrow and tortuous hallway,
it is a wonder thut hnlf of the people
in the hotel this morning escaped.
Tbey were slow to awaken, many were
dazed and stupefied by the smoke when
the pi lice, the firemen und tbe hotel
employees, hurrying through the hull
ways, kicked open doors and notified
the people of their great danger. When
Ihey managed to roach the windows
and flro escapes, there were uo lndders.
Many attemptod to jump from the
windows to the streets, hut were
warned not. to do so by the crowds below. Then the firemen got up their
hidden- and commenced taking the
people to the ground, rescuing many
iu this manner. In the interior of the
hotel un explosion in tbe theatre caused thut portion of the building to oavo
iu. This explosion also extinguished
the electric lights throughout tbe
building. There were manv people in
the upper halls uud corridors at thnt
time uud firemen und policemen were
trying to lead them to the Markot und
Powell street windows. The entire
top of the hotel was n blazing iihish.
Those in the street bolow could see
through the rifts in the smoke nlong
lliu uttic cornices, forms of men unit
women crouching and clinging to the
woodwork, which was already beginning to smoulder. Streams from 80
engines were boing poured upon the
blazing bnildiug from overy point of
vuuluge, but without auy apparent
effect. Explosion followed explosion.
Tho rqof of the building collapsed, tuk -
iug wilh it buck into the building n
number of thoso who bud been clinging for life to the attic gables.
The death of White was most dramatic. Three women appeared on tbe
cornice of tbo fifth floor on tbe Market
street side of the hotel. The firemen
could not reach tbem with ludders and
they stood helpless, screaming with
terror. Suddenly White came out of
a window carrying a small rope. With
this he lowered tbo women into the
arms of the firemen, who were waiting
at the windows, to the noxt floor, |,th��ii
he started down the rope, hand over,
hand. Half way dowu, the ropo parted
and the mnn who hud just saved three
lives was daBhed to the pavement. 100
feet below.
'"Lucky" Baldwin hud u narrow
escape from perishing in his own hotel.
Amid all tbo din he Blept peacefully
until his room was broken in and he
Was dragged from bis bed. H. I.
Kowalski, a well known attorney, wos
also dragged unconscious from bis bed.
He will recover. One of tbo most
thrilling incident of tho tire was the
rescue of A. H. Christie by fireman
Keogh. For a few minutes Christie
ran to and fro on the cornices of the
fifth floor, seeking in vain for Borne
way to esoape the rapidly approaching
flames. Fireman Keough, after many
efforts, managed to reach Christie and
bring bim down in safety.
The bnildiug of the hotel  began   in
1878 and it was finished in 1877. its
total cost, including ground pnd furniture, being $8,C0J,000. The building
was In the French Renaissance atyle
with Corinthian columns and Mansard
roof, six. stories high and with -the
principui dome 1(12 feet high. Tb��
hotel ocoupied the lot on the corner of
Market and Powell streets, extending
about 2C0 feet ou Market. 400 feet on
Powell and 800 ou Ellis street In the
building was tho Baldwin theatre
The street' floor of the building was occupied by tbe hotel, offices, barroom
und a number of stores. In the basement was un elnliorately fitted cafe.
Tho Baldwin theatre was completely
demolished by the falling of the fifth
floor. The entire effects of the "Secret
Service" company, whioh was filling
un engagement at that theatre, were
destroyed, nothiug whatever being
saved. The w-"ii,j ��� ,1,1 Htage settings
were vely v��lil...-;[.: A great deal of
jewelry nud money, belonging to
members of tho company, were also
lost. Tho Columbia theatre and plaoes
of business opposite the Baldwin were
damaged by water to the extent of
(16,000.
E- J. Baldwin, owner of the hotel,
is prostrated and unable to toll muoh
about bis affairs. He says he will not
��� 6'able to estimate his losses for some
days. H. V. Lake, manager of the
hotel, barely monagad to get out with
his wife nnd children, He says there
were 302 guests in the hotel.
THE PET OF THE OFFICE.
Londou, Nov. 28.���The Pall Mall
Gazette this afternoon, commenting
OO the refereuco to the loyalty of the
French Cnnudiuna in Lord Aberdeen's
speech at tho Liverpool banquet, snvs
Jacques is now the pet of the oolonial
oflice and deserves it, despite of his
disposition to obey, without murmuring, a somewhat grasping ohuroh.
A BANK ROBBED.
Utica, Ohio, Nov. 28.���The Wilson
bunk was robbed while the officials
wero nbsont for 15 minutes at dinner,
12.000 in registered bonda; $5,600
in coupon bonds, and $6,600 in
gold ujid currency being taken. Thero
is no oluo but trumps are supposed to
have done the work.
OUTLOOK FOR SILVER.
The steady advance in the price of
the white metal must be very encouraging to the owners of silver properties
as well as to tho residents of British
Columbia in general. Even if tbe
price remains as it is now. qnoted it
will mean the ushering in at au early
dare of a season of unparalleled prosperity for overy mining distriot in the
province. The silver pioperties of the
Slocun und Nelson division!, alone,
when extensively and systematically
operated, aro sufficient to produce a
most benoficinl effect npon the couatry
nt lnrge, whilo the results which will
bo experienced in Kootenny as soon ns
they aro bo worked will bo gratifying
in tlio extreme. The rise in silver is
uguin attracting the attention of tbe
investors in this direoton, and it will
uot be long until they take advantage of
the opportunities which await them.
Capital does uot require a great while
to look around in seeking for safe aud
legitimate investment, and if silver
continues to hold its own above the 80
mark, tbis fact will soon be demonstrated in the opening up of new prospects and the further development of
mines whioh have been lying idle for
some timo past.���Trade Review.

NEW LOCATION*.
Nelson.
The effect  of having a strong,   able,   Nov. 19.���
honest man at the head of affairs in
the Yukon iB well seen since Mr.
Ogilvie assumed the administration of
that region. His oharaoter as a just
and impartial man preceded him, for
at his approach, it is reported, many
persons of questionable occupation in
Dawson found it to their interest to
to flee from before him. It bas heen
noticed, too, that tbe scandals and
obarges of dishonesty whioh were rife
some time ugo; hnve oeaaed. To a deputation that waitod upon him the
other day, the administrator said tbnt
since coming into the oountry he bad
done his best to make things straight
nnd that when he found anyone iu the
government employ acting in a dishonest manner, he would bave the
offender punished.
One of the chief causes of complaint
formerly was favoritism and obstruo
tive tactics in tbe gold commissioner's
office. Mr. Ogilvie will have the records of that office made public, so
thnt auy miuer can go to the office aud
by paying a small fee cnn search the
title of any claim. There huve been
new rules introduced, also, in the post
office, which the deputation referred
to  unproved of us h.itisfuotory.
Had the government gfVen the control of nffairs in thnt country to Mr.
Ogilvie iu the first place, muoh trouble
aud aunnyunce would hnve been avoided. He is a mun whom experience
eminently fitted for the position, and
the fnct thut the government had to
call upon him ut last, showed previous
luck of judgment. Happily, he baa
beon able to evolve order out of confusion, and is one of tbe most valuable
offlciuls iu the depurtmeut. There is
a lesson iu tliis for tlie provincial gov
ernmeut. Tbere ure many offices in
tbia province growing iu importance
daily. Some of these nre vacant and
othera may be and they should be filled
by the vory best men at liberal salaries. A cheap service means cheap
men.

There aro the Dreyfus case and the

same, the great movement in Britain
for union of tbe Anglo-^axon race, the
complications iu China und tbe nice
diplomatic work going ou there, the
probahlo renewal of tbo war between
Spain and the United Stutes and hundred! of other things that newspaper
readers would find instruction in,
which they must have if they would
be intelligently Informed on the events
of the day. And what do they get.
Through the kindness of tbe gentlemen who make up the Associated Press
despatches iu New York and elsewhere, they have two columns and n
bit of prize fight. Tliey are informed
tbat a Mr. Corbett biffed a Mr. Sharkey ou the uose, pounded him on the
jaw with both hands, punched him in
tbe stomach and hit him on the ear.
But all these dreadful things are not
done to Mr. Sharkey whilo he is in

FRENOH THEATRE OO.
at   the
A Night of Comedy And Fun
Skating Rink.
Last night the performanoo of the
French Theatre oompany at the skut-
ing rink was for the bonefit of tbe
NoIhou Hookey olub. There was a fair
audieuoe present uud the plays presented were thoroughly enjoyed Owing
to the illness of Miss Holden, who
was taken suddenly ill after Tuesday
night's performance, tho play of
"Dad's Girl," billed for last night, in
which MisB Holden was cast for an
important part, wns postponed until
Fridny night, the compony substitnt
ing tho farce "A Tip nt the Races",
whicli was followed by tlie comedy
"My Mother-in-law." Itis doubtful
if there was ever bo muoh fun in , the
rink as the compauy created last night.
"My Mother-in-law" is filled with
ludricous situations, the dialogue io
sprightly nnd the notion all through
was spirited. The improvised cbnract
er of the performance rendered the
programme for the night useless and
without a printed caste it was difficult
bett in the mouth, punchos him in h I  ^*disti"n*i?n^Bh lo whom   the  different

other one smiles, and so forth.     These

away in a very happy frame of mind.
The building was well heated and
the electrio light stuck to business like
a little man.
There will bc a matinee this afternoon. The doors will open at 2 o'clock
and the performance will begin at

SAVED BY A SWITCHMAN
A Barrioade Plaoed on a Bridge Whioh the
Train Had to Orbss on Its Way
From Copenhagen.
Berlin. Nov, 28.���A despatch from
Elbing, "the seapdrt of West Prussia,
says nu attempt was made upon the
life of the Czar while his majesty was
returning from Copenhagen. JuBt before the Oaar'gspeoial train crossed the
bridge' between Boehmonhoefeu arid
Lngern, a switchman discovered that
the bridge had been barricaded. By
almost superhuman efforts, as a result
of which he is now iu the hospital,
the switohmau, it appears, succeeded
in removing the obstacles sufficiently
to permit of Ihe passage of the imper.
ial train. An investigation, whioh is
being condncted in seoret, is still proceeding.

Through some mistake or other the
dealers of Nelson did not receive tbeir
consignment ot Thanksgiving geese

Thanksgiving turkeys were on exhibition yesterday, but geese were not
in it. Certain people got a turkey out
of the dice box, but other birds were
not to be had.elsewhere.
The police magistrate had no case

fact is realized by building contractors. "There is no sun to dry" said Mr.
T. G. Procter to a Miner man yesterday "and we cannot keep up with
orders."

AN IMPORTANT QUESTION.
Dear heaven's latest gift to me,
My baby, lay upou my knee,
A little son, tbe seoond gift
Which heaven had sent my heart t�� lift
In gratitude that te my cur��
Be deigned another soul to spare.
"Now have I two to love I" cried I
Aud smiled to think how by and by
My baby's sister, the wee matt
Who for three years had daily flayed
The part ef queen among us alf.
Would oome so gayly at my call
Aud welcome with a laugh of joy
Her first look at our baby boy.
Bhe came, and, standing by me there,
Bhe viewed him with a wondering
Then, turning anxious gaze ou me,
"Did he bring hia mother?" question*
she.
���Harper's Baser.
HIS FIRST WIFE.
Cynthia regarded the flashing little olr-
olet with evident delight. It waa on* of
the many that sparkled on her dalloate
white hand, but lt bore a slgnlfloaaoe beyond the others. It meant tbe dipping of
butterfly wings; the waning ot the homage due to a beautiful and marriageable
heiress, and which, though often mnde th*
subject of scornful wit, was ever accepted
and acceptable. It meant the ratification
of a sweet and binding contract with the
chosen one���the man to whom wealth was
no object and rank no allurement, and,
for that reason, tt dazzled eyos familiar
with tho radiance of gems.
The fingers that had just bestowed tha
gift still clasped hers with tender pressure,
and. for the first time, she noticed their
single ornament���an oddly shaped gold
ring, that found fault in her fastidious
eyes.
"Why do you wear this?" she naked.
with a curl of the lip.
"Because I value it," replied her loTor,
seoretly resenting the little sneer.
Her curiosity was roused. Though she
felt thut for some reason he would prefer
pot to talk aliout It, she persisted.
"Did you buy ltf"
"No.    It was given tome."
"By a friend-?"
"By the best friend I ever had."
The laconic replies annoyed her. She
dropped hi, hand, saying, "Well, I don't
admire it."
Ho accepted tho dismissal of the subject
without a word, and the conversation
drifted Into another channel���one of the
winding tributaries of love. Future plans
were discussed, and dates were fixed, to a
running accompaniment of jest and laughter.
Suddenly the ring caught her careless
glance again.
"ThareI" she said, pointing to lt impatiently. "It fascinates ma I am sure it
bus a history.    Tell ma "
She spoke as one who ls used to command and certain of compliance. Leaning back she closed her eyes languidly and
waited.
"Go on," she said at last with some
Surprise.
And Bt ill he hesitated.
"It ls a sad on*. Tou would not cars
to know it," he said finally.
Sho Bat erect, intensely curious.
" Indeed I would, now thut you are so
mysterious. Does it oontuin poison? Is
lt a Masonic symbol, or perhaps somo
weird sign of witchery?"
Kor once her gayety j.iiTcd on him, and
he w .is unable to answ. r ln the same bantering strain.
"My dear," he suid, "lt waa given to
me by ono who Is dead,"
She wns momentarily silent, then began
again!
"I have never noticed It bofore."
"And yet I always wear It."
"Why*"
"Ah, Cynthia, you asked me that onco.
Becauso I value lt more than anything I
POS60SS."
"Well, I will give you one qulto as
quaint and with un original Inscription.
Will you wear it for nie?"
Her pretty eugerness made him smile.
"Of course 1 will."
She flushed a little. "I mean, will you
wear lt Instead of this?"
"No.    I cannot promise that."
His answer startled hor. It was so grave
and resolute. She renewed th* attack:
"But, don't you sec, if I glvo It to you, it
would bo your most precious possession.
Don't you care for me better than any one
In thc world?"
Hu drew her to him fondly.
"Yes. I can answer thut with troth,
but you would not have me break my
promise?"
"What promise?"
"I vowed to wenr it us long as Iltve. If
it be possiblo, It shall be burled with me."
"The dying have no right to catort suoh
promises from the living, "she remarked
scutontlously. " Your friend was extremely selfish."
"Oh, Cynthia, sho was an angel I"
There was more sorrow than anger ln
tho tone, lie did not look for much depth
of fooling In Cynthia. She had-been too
spoiled. It was his task to bring out the
lovable points in her nature that her luxurious life hud loft undeveloped and In
which his love dimmed eyes had foreseen
great and noble possibilities.
"Hbo was���your first wlfo?" asked Cynthia Blowly, and showing m, disposition to
retract her former opinion.
"Yes. The ring hail been In-her* family
for many generations. She considered It a
kind of talisman, and wor'j lt always, till,
dying, she bequeathed lt to me. Ther* is
���By story."
"It seems Impossible that you can fall
me ln so small a sacrifice, " she rejoined,
with a bitter little laugh "Still, you we,
���uch things may happen."
Hor air of calm resolution wa* maddening, yot he felt Instinctively tbat na word
of reproach or anger would help. Assent
was dishonorable, denial was difficult.
There was no way out of the Mia���
"A little time," he pleaded.
"Till tonight," Bhe said hurriedly. "You
must let me know your decision by than.
Remember, nothing can alter mine. I
only claim my right. But," she added
persuasively, "you can easily decide now.
Let me have my way. Ah do, and end
our flrst and last quarrel 1"
There was a subtle fondness ln her tone,
an undeflnable power ln her uw 1ft upward
glance that swayed his wavorlng heart,
but the golden tuken on his finger pre��ed
him under her clinging hand, and < b*
���hook his head.
"No, dear, such a tow Is no* y>'-b*
lightly broken. I must earnestly consider
your request. I wish you had asked m*
anything but this," he went on wistfully,
lacking sympathy ln her soft, dark eyes.
But Cynthia's tenderness had vanished.
She drew baok piqued, Ul at eaae, in her
���uppllant attitude, an ominous frown
darkening her fair forehead a* aha turned
���way.
'' As you will," she said coldly.
Momorle* that Cynthia's presence hnd
���bused for many months crowded vividly
Into the widower's mind as he strolled on.
Seedless of din or trafflo or tk* dbwMM
to be pursued. Her words of anger and
o-.ipusitiun had invented th* ring he had
almost grown to regard with the unthinking gaze of custom with new and startling
significance. It simply rivetad him to th*
past. He might discard lt, still holding
its purpose ln his heart, but the thought
was a base one. He knew that his dead
wife would have borne such a vow to th*
gates of heaven, and that no sacrtfle*
would have abated the strength and endurance, of the love whioh he dared not
weigh with Cynthia's impulsive passion.
He had hardly dwelt on it since she had
keen taken from him���at flrst because lt
meant hopeless heartache, latterly because
k seemed disloyal to his betrothed, but
tow at thia turning point he realized hia
loss afresh and wondered that the remembrance had faded ever so Uttl* in ths radiance of Cynthia's smiles.
Yet allegiance to the beloved dead meant
the facing of the old homeless life, the return of that morbid depression which Cynthia's infectious gayety and pretty, petulant ways alone had power to dispel
He had walked on, dreaming, far beyond
his original destination���tb* oozy set of
rooms presided over by his faithful valet
Suddenly he stopped with an involuntary
exclamation, for he stood at the very
threshold of his old home. What Impulse
had led his unconscious footsteps along the
often traversed road he knew not or how
he oame to look upon the house he shunned
since th* day of mourning, but having
aome he was glad, for the wrench of parting waa not the present pain. He was able
to recall the grim old mansion's joyful
as woll a* sorrowful associations. For tha
flrst time since his bereavement he felt th*
desire and strength to sea the room within
that had been hers, unaltered as ahe bad
left it, till Cynthia, resolute In hor banishment of rivaling recollection, should carelessly scatter and rearrange.
The old housekeeper started from her
lethargy of idle oaretaklng, answered hi*
summon* with olumsy alacrity and soon
ho stood at the bedside when some yean
ago he had flung himself in an agony of
grief and sobbed out a last fanwell.
A melancholy light itruggled through
th* curtained window. Th* knlokknacki
they had purchased together in odd corners
of th* world, the ytoturc* sh* had ohosen,
her favorlt* chair, the oouoh on which
she had lain to please him, with ��� thought
of reoev*ry, he law through ��� mist of
tears, for a gnawing hunger had crept into
hia heart in the ohlll and utter loneliness
of th* room ono* brightened by bar dear
presence. How happy thay had been I
Then wa* no death for suoh a love as
theirs. It walked and throbbed in him
���gain ln this room, where ah* had breathed
out her blameless life, and what had com*
between them seemed to him like a dream.
Cynthia wa* right. He mnst always be
making useless comparisons, for something
must ever be wanting in his life, something that never oould be replaced.
His brimming eyea sought th* spot
*tthA> the ooffln rested. H* oould see her
now, lying than, as sh* had looked for ths
laat time, white and aenne, her folded
hands full of flowers, the eyes that had reflected his loving gaze pitilessly sealed, a
strange smile on the Ups that often met
bis ln yielding sweetness. Ah, if he might
hear that low and gentle vole* again, if he
might pillow that weary, golden head on
his breast, and, asking forgiveness for a
fleeting fancy, repeat his vow with all the
fervor of the past I
He sat down, hiding his faoe in his
bands. With the reopening of this unhealed wound oame a revulsion bf feeling,
reproach for the self sought forgetfulness
his want of fortitude had mad* desirable,
remorse for the shrinking from pain that
made him swerve from so dear a memory
and for the wrong he did Cynthia ln
clinging to It.
But he hesitated no longer. The silent
hour of retrospect had brought him very
near to his flrst love, and with the bitter
ache of longing 'came a strange sense of
security and rest.
Unchanged she awaited him, fair and
lovely aa he had known her, this dear
angel, speaking through th* silence ef
heaven, to hold him to his vow.
For Cynthia he had no fears.   Tbat she
had been able to make their engagement
conditional on thl* breach of trust led him
I to hop* its dissolution would cause her little suffering.
A parting pang aualled him aa he penned the brief message of farewell, a dread
of th* creeping, gloomy years beyond
which his brightest hope beckoned, but be
lifted the talisman that wedded him to his
dead bride, pressing it softly to his lips,
aad the shadow fled.
Cynthia orushsd the note ln her hand.
Bhe waa hurt She was indignant. Sh*
was scornful. A hundred sensations,
mingled with no thoughts of surrender,
struggled for mastery In her breast.
But the faint, unconfessed regret that
struggled beneath the angry tumult, the
feeling that lias so deep in somo souls that
only agony may wring lt forth, the deadened walling of love that will not be stilled
���these were among the bitterest tear* she
���had.���Hilda Newman ln Madame.
