I life. Louisville Courier Joum?,
"Are you tired, JoTinf"
Curiously unnerved for a man of robust
physique and ordinarily normal imag
ination. Royal let these strangers have
their way with him, thankful for the res
pite which their quiet acceptance of him
gave. He avoided looking at the bride,
dreading to meet her glance lest it should
unfit him for his part, for with the sight
of the crowd his desire to explain matters
withdrew into the background. This
was not the time, nor was it the place.
The affair had developed complications
for which he was totally unprepared,
and he wanted time to think, to assimi
late and readjust. The sequence of events
had been so different from his own pre
conceived arrangement of them that his
mind for the moment was thrown out
of gear, and stood supine, accepting that
which came as though it were a finality.
The thing moat evident to him was
that he had ensnared himself with a net
work of egregious blundering, and that
egress from it, to be graceful or even
endurable, would require more skill .of
management than he had any right to
accredit himself with possessing. The
terms in which he apostrophized him
self summed up the case, and were none
the less hearty and comprehensive for
being inwardly given. "Of all the inter
meddling, dunderheaded fools in this
world," so ran his thoughts, "im ' Wf
ntitlod to tho . load, Hart Royal. And
a beautiful mess you've gotten yourself
into this time, with your damned offi-
The preoccupation of his manner and
the careworn expression of his face
caused the people to surmise that lie
must be in acute physical pain. For the
few moments allowed to friends at coun
try weddings even church weddings
they crowded round him, striving to re
call themselves to his memory, and
speaking pitifully of the accident and
enthusiastically of his pluck in not al
lowing it to interfere with his marriage.
They were so kind and cordial that
Royal could have gnashed his teeth and
shouted at them that he was no better
than an impostor. Instead of which he
nailed his false colors to the mast, as it
were, and smiled and bowed and shook
hands with everybody.
His brain worked with feverish rapid
ity, and by the time they had shut him
into Squire Brandon's carriage for the
short drive to the house, where the
young lady would change her dress for
the wedding journey, a sense of the
grotesqneness of his own position touch
ed him, bringing with it a sudden strong
desire to laugh, and creating a reaction
which restored equilibrium. He had
made a mess of it, he was willing to ad
mit, but circumstances had seemed to
wall him into a narrow track, along
which he bad cantered like the most
obliging of donkeys. At this stage of
the proceedings ''hindsight'' did little
good and was provocative of exaspera
tion, and of reliable foresight he was
fain, in all humility of soul, to confess
himself destitute. There-was. nothing
for it but to face the situation in the
present and endeavor-to adjust it with
the minimum of pain and discomfort all
around. The only solution which sug
gested itself was to carry out the plan as
originally proposed, striving to blunder
less in the end than he had done in the
beginning. He would take the young
lady straight to John Royal, making
such explanation to her a would insure
her recognition of the love and anxiety
for her future which had been the main
spring of a scheme which- he now de
nounced as idiotic,
In the presence of the dying man all
personal piqno, all womanly sensitive
ness, would shrivel and vanish before the
majesty of love and the awful mystery
of that which was to come. A strange
journey it would be, with a strange end
ing. For the first time came realization
of the matter from the woman's stand
point, and with it a great pity for her
and a strong desire to shield her from the
comment, curiosity and multiplicity of
detail to which his story must gwe - rise,
at least until this travesty of marriage
could be made real by the true man's ac
knowledgment of it. He would keep his
own counsel until he should have given
the wife into the keeping of her husband,
and then it would be time enough to ad
mit the outside world, to enter upon ex
planations and self justification.
Arrived at a definite conclusion, he
squared his shoulders and put aside that
strange sense of Irrevocability and per
sonal implication which had oppressed

It was the young lady who broke the
"No," he answered, surprised.
It seemed odd to him. at the moment,
that the woman should put that ques

"You were so quiet that I had to laugh.
It seemed so funny to sit up like two
owls, never Baying a word to one an
other," she proceeded. "We are cousins,
you Know, jo tin, just, the same as we
used to be. But perhaps you, are in

He intended jto take her .whether she
f shonUl be or not, but put the question
from sheer nervousness. Anything was
better than sitting beside her in a state
of absolute passivity.
"Oh, yes. My trunks were packed
some days ago, and all the arrangements
made. - You were so explicit so so
masterful" with another rippling laugh.
"You have not changed in that, John.
You love your own way still. Is it not
so? But the arrangements need make
no difference. We can stay over a day
or two to rest if it will be better for you.
You will like to see the old place and to
visit Aunt Anne s grave, bhe was so
fond of you. We could stop over for
But Royal would not hear of stopping
over for anything. His private feeling
toward the deceased lady was one of dis
tinct animosity. He hoped orthodoxly
and vengeful y that she might be doing
spiritual penance for the trouble and dis
tress likely to be entailed by the acts of
her material life, and would gladly have
known that she was aware of the mis
carriage of her plana and greatly tor
mented thereby. He generalized for a
moment in regard to the old home and
the desire to see it which he was expected
to feel; but he made it evident that he
intended to leave by the first down train.
Unlike brides in general, this young
lady appeared docile and amenable to an
exceptional degree. Royal, in the midst
of his anxiety, wondered over her, and
felt the soul within him moved to grati
tude. Then his professional experience
reminded him that women are usually
submissive to the power conferred by
suffering. In the eyes of this woman he,
perhaps, appeared a wounded hero.
Her next words made evident that
luch was indeed the case.
"That Horn Die accident," she mur
mured, and a quick shudder ran through
her frame. "I can't help feeling that
halx has not been told me that yon
have all conspired to keep the worst
back and make light of it, in order to
spare me pain. ' . You poor fellow I , how
yon must have suffered! It was terrible
a home coming like that, after six
years' exile. When I think of it all of
what you have done for me of what
you are doing for me and enduring for
my sake and then think of the anxiety
in store for you for us both I feel that
a lifetime of love and devotion will
hardly pay interest on the debt I owe
you. Am I worth it to you, John? Will
I ever be worth it to you"
Her voice trembled a little, and Royal
had an intuition that she was holding
back tears. He felt a sudden stricture
of the heart, as though the blood had
been drained away. This was not the
happy chatter of a girl bride, loving and
beloved. Through this woman's voice
pulsed an undercurrent of pathos, thrill
ing its sweetness like minor chords in
music. He felt, somehow, that in spite
of his best endeavor he was taking un
fair advantage of the man -who had
trusted him, was getting a glimpse into
arcana which ' no stranger unauthorized
should penetrate. - His pity grew apace,
and beside it developed a devouring
coriosityV- until his very breast seemed
strained by stress" and complexity of
emotion. He yearned to speak to her,
it durst not for lack of proper words
and an assured position, snd so dumbly
waited, feeling that if she should con
tinue to talk in that strain during the
rest of the drive he could not be held ac
countable for his actions.
She did not appear to notice his silence
or to be hurt by it; perhaps she was in
some subtle way conscious of the tension
of his mood, or she may have been pre
oecuDied bv her. own thoughts. : For a
little space there was silence.

can't love me in the old way, John. It

SPECIMEN CASE OF
Piano making i ocwcf tte few
tries of this country which are indiffer
ent to protection and care nothing for
foreign competition. While nominally
protected, the manufacturers are entirely
independent of tariff benefits. Of course
there lias always been a tariff upon
pianos, bat not at the solicitation of the
manufacturers. Where a new tariff hu
been introduced the duty has been re
tained, more on account of general prin- J
ciples than because the manufacturers
have invaded the halls of congress, de
manding protection for an "infant in
dustry." In no hearings on the tariff
have they appeared and demanded an
incBease, or even a retention of old
duties. On the contrary, they have re
ded upon their own skill and enterprise
for protection, and the result has justi
fied their course, for more pianos have
been exported every year than have been
imported, and we have sent some of our
best productions to the greatest musical
country of the world Germany herself.
We began to manufacture pianos over
ninety years ago,
The industry has
grown rapidly, the production last year
being double what it was ten years ago.
Last year we made about 72,000 pianos,
and it is estimated that since 1820 we
have made 1,210,000. The census re
turns of 1690 are not yet published, but
it is estimated that we now have 200 fac
tories engaged in turning out pianos or
parts used in them such as keys, wires.

While the piano industry has no in
terest in protection for itself, protec
tion lays numerous burdens upon that
industry. In fact it is made a prey to
the greed of several minor industries
higher protection than ever before.
These increased duties are specimen
tricks in the new tariff law, and thef
deserve attention from the people a
large as illustrating the rapacity of tariff
The first of the parte used in piano
making which are subject to higher du
ties under the McKinley law are the
tuning pins to which the strings are at
tached. The old duty on these pins was
25 per cent. It was first proposed by
McKinley to make the duty 40 per
cent, along with "pianos and
pianoforte actions, and parts of."
This paragraph was constructed at the
loud solicitation of the action makers,
who, though they had no interest at all
in tuning pins, were very anxious to con
struct the paragraph affecting their own
productions so broadly that they them
selves might be secure from competition,
with the result that they included every
thing used in piano manufacture. Bat
they demanded that the duty be fixed at
50 instead of 40 per cent., and when the
bill went to the senate they accomplished
their purposes in part by having the
whole paragraph struck from the sched
ule. The result was that tuning pins
were made dutiable at 45 per cent., and
the price was at once put up to $3.20 per
thousand, having been $2.40.
A similar trick was performed in re
gard to the felt which is put on the ham
mers. There is only one factory en
gaged in the production of piano felt in
the United States that of Mr. Alfred
Dolge, of Dolgeville, N. Y. the annual
production of which, according to Mr.
Dolge, is about 300,000 pounds. England
has two factories, France two and Ger
many lour. The omy piano xeit im
ported into tfca United States comes from

PARTY LEADERS TO BLAME.
An Issue that can no Longer be
, - Tferttttled.
That r.o plank favoring the resto
ration of nil ver to Its former and
rightful position as money on a
parity with gold has been incorpora
ted into i be national platforms of
the party since 187.1 has not been
owing to a lack of sentiment up-n
the part of the men who compose
the party, not because no food rea
son existed for going back to the
free coinage of silver, but because
the leaders not the party but the
men who have had the honor of
speaking for the party through
cowardice, or else through a mis
conceived idea as to policy, have re
mained silent. But as time has
advanced the evil effects ot the de
monetization of silver has been felt
more and more, the necessity for a
larger circulating medium has be
come more apparent, the oppressed
and debt-ridden farmers of the coun
try have realinxl each vear more
than the preceding one, the wrong
done to them by the demonetization
of silver, and the necessity of in
creasing the circulating medium
of the country, hence the earnest
and continued demand of the masses
for free coinage. These things made
It imperative for the party In its
various State conventions last fall
to speak out upon this issue, and
makes it imperative that the- next
national Democratic convention
take a stand upon this issue. The
party Is, in consistency and honor,
irrevocably committed to free
coinage, and w. 11 not forsake ; this
issue, but it may be that fear . of
antagonizing the money centers
the usurer and money lender On
the part of the leaders, will deter
them from putting a free coinage
plank Into the next national plat
form, but in this event, the leaders
will forfeit, and the unity will loe
the confidence of the iop!e of - the
South and of the West. It Is Im
possible to throttle thl issue, which
like Banquo's Ghot,will not down.

This session of the Assembly is
one of more than usual interest. In
addition to the programme of regu
lar sessions fbr the instruction and
Improvement ot teachers, there is
an extraordinary array of fine speech
es by big men. The opening address,
by Dr. Haodtrlln, "on the Import
ance and Dlralty Due the Teacher
for he' high vocation." was most
enjoyable and Instructive, lie said
that in every school each pupil will
come under one of the following
heads: (l)The plodding ox, (2j the
stubborn mule, (8) the fiery horse,
or (4) the soaring eagle.
To manage and develop each one
of these different kinds of pupils with
varying abilities and temperaments
requires In the teacher a high order
of (1) Patience. (2) Perseverance.
(3) And discriminating Judgment.
This molding of Immortal mind is
great and terrible thing. You
might Judge by the above skeleton
that the speech was dry, but It was
anythingelse. It was acknowledged
by all to be the most entertaining
speech ever delivered here.

This gives a true index of the work
of the Assembly.
What has the Assembly accom
plished? In addition to pleasure and
profit f rom the social stand polat, the
professional work has been of high
order, the educational exhibit haslo-
creased in attractiveness. Teacher
and others have been enabled to see
North Carolina as they would never
have seen her but for these yearly
meetings at rea-ride and on moun

Great applause greeted the speaker
at the close of his address, for it was
indeed a delightful, instructive and
