But It was different with him.

Jealousy evon in the supreme moment of his happiness was already gnawing at his heart and he knew he could not live with her in peace and let those seven years sleep. One day, about a week after their reunion, she was well enough to take a little turn on the shore; the soft salt breeze blowing in her face brought there a tinge of returning health and youth that tempted him to make an effort to recall the past. She looked at him with mournful eyes, then said with peevish pathos "What can you not let me be, Paul? I am alive and happy now why drag me back to death and torment? I want to forget it all-all." "And so do he answered eagerly; "but I cannot, I cannot, my wife, if you will not speak. Men are different from women, and, if I do not know how and where you spent those seven years, they will poison my peace until the day I die. Tell me now, and I will forget them, put them from me after this hour, no matter what what you tell me." She sighed restlessly, then spoke.

GOVERNOR SMITH RESIGNS, Dynamite and Bullets Too Much for the Soldiers Home Managrer. Santa Monica, Dec 23. The resignation of Andrew Jackson Smith, governor of tho Soldiers' home at Santa Monica, has been presented to the board of managers and accepted.

It is to take effect March 31. Governor Smith gives as his reasons for resigning the two attempts to take his life, both by members of tho homes of which he was manager. One was ab Leavenworth, in which dynamite was used; the other when an old soldier, A. G. Bradley, shot him in the back four times at Santa Monica.

Senator Morrill of Vermont is ill with an attack of la grippe complicated with lung and heart trouble and his death, it is said, a matter of only a short time. Dr.

Tho senator has been for some years ihc patriarch of tha Sanate, and has iicld a warm place in the affections of lis associates. Ho was re-elected in I890 for a fifth consecutive term, which will not expire until March 3, 1003.

With respect to the freqifently repeated statemont that tho sentiment, of the powers, with tho exception of England, was opposed to the United States, and looked witli hisfavor upon the attitude of this government in dealing with Spain, Senator Frye said: "I saw no evidence of such sentiment existing outside of France, and in Franco that sentiment appeared to be confined to the press, which docs not reflect tho sentimout of the nation nor the people generally." "Do you think there will be any restoration of cordial relations between Spain and tho United States?" "I think that very soon after tho ratification of the peace treaty, and tho restoration of diplomatic relations, there will bo no difficulty about negotiating commercial treaties and a treaty for the release of prisoners and such other matters directed toward the perfect restoration of friendly relations between the two governments." "What has been published with respect to the treaty of peace seems to indicate, does it not, that this government is not committed by these negotiations with respect to the future disposition of the territory, the Spanish sovereignty over which has been relinquished?" "It indicates very strongly that this government is not committed in any way whatever with respect to the disposition and government of these islands. If we are insane enough to do so, we might give them all back to Spain after the ratification of the treaty.

If we were fools, we might divide them up among the other foreign powers. Tho whole matter is left in the hands of Congress. Congress can -sposition of the islands it Duy of the treaty she felt she could sit in his presence till morning, watch him playing with his children, chatting familiarly with his so-called wife, and never even wish to claim him as her own, because her man was Edith's husband. With a stifled scream, her hands instinctively flying to her face, she started back, and Paul, looking up, saw her. She heard his voice upraised in a loud cry a cry that went to her heart like a knife and sent every nerve in her body quivering with a fierce pain of old, which she had believed stilled forever; one second's scared Inaction and the next she was across the churchyard, flying as If for her life.

Soon she heard his voice, then footsteps following eagerly. Redoubling her speed she struggled on, knocking against headstones and cypresses, stumbling over the low grassy mounds that covered the nameless dead, longing for some grave to open and engulf her, for the suffocating waters to close round her again and bear her out of reach of him," whom she, alas, still loved better than her own life pr her eternal welfare, whose peace, home, happiness she was about to destroy forever. Her breath came in panting gasps, the ground surged under her feet. Nearer and nearer came the pursuing sounds, and clearer the entreating voice. Unless the moon would slip behind that bank of heavy cloud, towards which it was traveling, oh, so slowly, and enable her to drop into the dltoh that lined the churchyard In three more strides, she felt that all was lost, the purpose of her seven years' struggle In vain In vain oh, worse than a thousand times in vain, love for him was dead.

She cared no more for him for whom she had sacrificed her youth, almost her life. She watched liim passing out, followed by his family, then rose with Bewildered gesture, scarcely knowing where she was. She looked at her companion, still sleeping in her corner, from her to Mrs. Dennys, who came flouncing in for the fourth and last time, and who addressed her unceremoniously. "Oh! Can you tell me, please, if my maid has returned? No? If she does will you tell her the box has been found, and we" Then the maid appearing, she went on, "Oh, here you are! The box has turned up and we are ready to start at last.

Are the children in the landau? I am talcing Master Percy In the brougham with me. Be sure to put my dressing-case on the front seat. I think that's all.

Oh, my poor darling!" he cried, covering her hand with kisses, in a burst of compassion and relief. "Our our little son was born there," she continued softly, after a slight pause, "and after a few weeks of life went peacefully to Heaven.

I I don't remember him at all; but they kept me this lock of his hair; it's pretty and soft, isn't it? Poor little mite!

28. Arrangements were completed yesterday for disinterring the bodies of the soldiers who were buried in the improvised cemetery at Camp Wikoff, Long Island. Lieutenant William F. Chase of the Sixth artillery will supervise the work. Forty coffins wore shipped to Montauk.

It was at first thought the bodies would be removed to tho National cemetery at Washington, but they will be buried in the military grounds in Cypress Hills cemetery in East Now York. At the head of each grave at Montauk Point was placed a bottle in which was a sealed slip of paper, with the name, rank, company, regiment and all particulars obtainable concerning the dead. By this means there will be no trouble identifying tho There are about -00 dead buried in the cemetery at Montauk, and it will probably take until the middle of January to complete the work of removal. despair, the poor soul dropped to the ground and lay at his feet cowering and whimpering in the wet grass like a frightened child. After a short silent struggle he lifted her up and plucked her hands from her face.

"It is you you!" he cried. "Helen, my wife, oh heaven!" The moon just grazing the murky mass of vapor, covered them in her wan white glare. Helen, numb with horror, looked at him whom a short half hour before she had seen in the bloom of prosperous comely prime, now changed changed into a haggard, fitorm-beaten aged man, with dimmed heavy eyes, worn wistful face, and hair plentifully sprinkled with grey, SENATOR MORRILL. jeen listened to to with mark-sd nttention by his iv!

Its deliver-in ce showed few signs of lessened vitality and at its conclusion the honor ivas done the senator of an unanimous passage of the resolution on which he spoke. Senator Morrill was born in Strafford, Vt. In early life he was a mer-shant and later a farmer. He was elected to the Honse of Representatives in the Thirty-fourth Congress and for four succeeding terms. Then lie was transferred to the Senate as a Union Republican, taking his seat March 4, 1807.

Since that time his service has been continuous and he has the record of tho longest unbroken term of service in the history of the Hen ate. He has taken an important part in the legislature of the last thirty years, especially on commercial and financial questions, his position as chairman of the finance committee giving him a leading part in all measures relating to the tariff, banking or currency.

Dr. Wiley, the Government Chemist, in his official examination of baking powders at the World's Fair, threw out all "alum powders," classing them as unfit for human food. But the World's Fair could approve as well as condemn.

Why, it is raining hard and blowing almost a gale.Extraordi-nary idea!" At last the station was clear of Mrs. Dennys, her nursery, maids and footmen; and Helen, unable to bear the air of the room where so many emotions had been crowded, went out to breathe In the gale. She hurried along heedless of where she was going, her cumbrous bonnet swinging in her hand, her cloak flying out behind her like a great black wing. Was she glad or sorry, relieved or disappointed?

She paused to take breath, then went on quickly as if she were repeating a lesson she loathed, but was forced to say "I wanted to kill myself and end it all I saw no harm. I jumped off the first bridge above the churchyard where the water was deep, and the weight of my clothes kept me under until I was half drowned; then nature asserted itself.
