T h e M y s t e r i o u s N o t e . It T A. F . n I L r.. “I was a Larnni-scarnm yoatb,” said a ccrtaiu lawyer, wliosc acquaintance I formed in Chicago, some ten years ago, “and for the first dozen years of roy manhood I had to scale aims. I started ont as clerk in a couiitry store, then 1 becamc a school teacher, nert a clerk in a drag store, where I learn ed many chemical mysteries; finally I became a law-stndent; aud it was ray knowledge of chemistry— a science of which I am passionately fond—that gave me a-start as a lawyer,” “Let me hear the story,” said L “Oertainly. My shingle had been mng out for four or five months, and I had net had a single brief to prepare. What little money I had possessed after my studies were completed was rapidly melting away, and I cpnld not ignore the fact that if no fees shonld come in my way for a conple of months should have to go ont on the street, or on the prairies, and labor for a living. I t would be no disgrace to bo sure. But when one has spent his little all in fitting himself for a professional life, and when he has set his heart and hopes on such a life, it is sad to have to abandon it. I was sitting in' my office one forenoon, indulging in certain gloomy thoughts on this subject, when the door opened and a middle-aged man in bumble garb came in, and I recognized him at the first glance as an honest and industrious machinist, named William Campbell, a former neighbor of my father’s, who is now dead. He was fluiTied and nervous, and I saw at once that there was something wrong.” “ ‘Good morning, Mr, Campbell,’ I said. ^How did you happen to find the office of a poor young lawyer like me?’” “ ‘By accident, he said. ‘I am in trouble, and if I do not get out of it I am ruined. All the savings of my life will be gone unless I can iind a lawyer smart «nongh to defeat the rascality of a certain man, and I was just going along, intending to call on the first lawyer whose sign I ahonld see, and it happened to be yours. As I knew your father well, and used to know you when yon were a boy, I thonght I could not do better than to put my case in your hands. I ’d at least be sure of fair treatment, I thonght.’ “ ‘Ipoa would be sure of that at the hands of any lawyer to whom you should intrust yonr case,’ said. ‘Now let me hear what it is, and rU see what can be done.' “ ‘Well, it is t h b : I ’ve worked pretty :hard all my life at my trade, and accumulated some money— about SIX thousand dollars, in fact, I have several children I would like to provide for, and it has been my constant aim to increase my money all I could, A year ago, a frient of mine, who is in the same busi ness I am in, told mo he couU take a partner this Spring, and that if I sbonLl go in with him he conlt make a great deal of money, looked ii>to the matter and founc that he was not mistaken about it I saw tl.at I conld, in a few years, increase my six thousand dollars to twenty thousand, and I told him I would bo ready to join him in the business when the time would come. Meantime my money was lying in the bank—where I ought to have left it—drawing five and-a- half per cent, interest, -Shortly after I had made this arrangement with my friend about the partnership, a man I knew well, and had great confidence in,'came to me and asked mo to lend him my money till I shonld want it. I told him I should want it at the end of the year, and ho said ho could readily return it by that time, and that he would give me eight per cent. So I let him h ^ u it, and now it is due ^nd£oan.’. t ^ ^ it back.’ he day property ?’ I asked. « *Yes—any amount of i t ; but I ’ve utrferstood that he’s a slippery fellow. I had not known that before,’ “ ‘But you took his note, surely?’ asked I, - “ ‘Yes, But I can’t find i t ; that’s what troubles me. I called on him yesterday and told him so, and he said he had no recollcction of borrowing any money from me. If I had his note, he wonid pay i t ; if I hadn’t he wouldn’t ?’ “ ‘And you can’t find the note?’ “ ‘No.’ “ ‘What did you do with it ?’ “ ‘I put it in this pocket-book, that I keep all my important papers in ; bat when I came to look for it, among some other notes, r^eipts, and the like, I couldn’t find it.’ “He produced a large, old-fashioned leathern pocket-book, and looked through it and examined a lot of receipts and notes that were packed together in one of its pock ets, thinking that two of the papers might be sticking together. “ ‘There is no promissory note for that amount here,’ I said. ‘But what IS this blank sheet of paper doing here ?’ And I held up a slip of white paper that I found among the documents, “ ‘I don’t know,’ ‘Who is the man that gave you the note ?’ “ ‘Alexander Bronton, the druggist.’ “I knew Alexander Bronton very well. He was a wealthy and penn rious man, and bad the reputation of being very tricky, I was satisfied that Mr. Cainpbell was telhng the tru th ; I was equally satisfied that Alexander Bronton was not a man who would be likely to forget having borrowed such an important sum as six thousand dol lars; and I jumped to the conclusion that he had played some cun ning trick to wrong the confiding mechanic oat of the fruits of many years of labor. But what was. the trick ? This was the question that puzzled me. “ ‘Have you had this pocket-book in a secure place ever since he gave you the note ?’ I asked. “ ‘Yes, under lock and key, where no one conld touch it but myself.’ “ ‘Are you sure that it has ever since been impossible for any one to get at it and steal ont the note?’ “ ‘I am perfectly sure of that. The lock of my desk, in which have kept it, is one that I made myselfl There is but one key in the world that will open it, am here it is,’ he said, producing from his pocket a bright steel key of very odd outline. ‘Not a thing has everl)een distnrbedin that desk.’ “I thought a few minutes as again casually overhauled the pa* pers, then said: “ ‘Mr. Campbell, I don’t mean to say that Bronton is dishonest, but might he not have handed yon this blank piece of paper and slipped the note in his pocket, with the money yon lent him ?’ “ ‘No, that is ont of the,question. I looked at the note again after I got home, and before I put my pocket-book away, to see that no mistake had been made in it. found it all right, plain as day, in ever letter and figure, and I remember as well as though it had been yesterday. I even remember noticing how clear and bright the ink was. I t band a kind of reddish tinge.’ ‘I was in the act of handing the pocket-book back to him as he said this, but a thought suddenly struck me And I opened it again. ‘‘ ‘Mr. Campbell,’ I said, carelessly, ‘do you remember whether the note was filled out on a blank form or not?’ “ ‘I t was not. He wrote it out in full,himself, on the top of a sheet of foolscap, aud cnt it off with pair of scissors. I remember everything about it very clearly, for it was about all I bad in the world, and to me it was a very important matter.’ ‘I examined the slip of white paper, for a sfartling idea was rapidly taking shape in my mind, and I perceivcd that it had been cut from the top of a page of foolscap, evidently with a pair of scissors. “ ‘Do you know how you happen ed to put this slip of paper in here?’ I asked, “ ‘No, I don’t remember of putting it there. I may have done so, thinking it would come handy to figure on,’- “ ‘Will you let me have it ?’ “ ‘Certainly,’ he replied, somewhat surprised at my modest request. “ ‘Well,’ I said, as I laid the slip on my table, and set my inkstand on in it, ‘I am going to make an effort to rccover your money for you. 1 shall bring suit against Bronton at once,and have him sum-moned to appear before Judge D-:— Yon can, of course, swear that you lent him tke money, and that the note be gave yon is miss ing?” “ ‘With a clear conscience,! coulc not be mistaken about it.’ ‘“ Then call on me to-morrow morning at nine o’clock.’ “ ‘I will.’ 'Concluded next Week. A man drawing his wife in a wagon, trudged into St. Johnsbnry, Vt., having played horse from Waterbary, 47 miles away, on a bet that be could do it m three days; he won by half a day. e ♦ o ~ The young Duke of Portland’s wedding present to his cousin, Miss Bentinck(wbo is engaged to Lord Glamis), will be a check for £10,000. This young lady’s father would have^ succeeded to the Dukedom had he lived, as he was the elder irother of the father of the present Duke. Two women got into a crowded St. Louis horse car. A man gave them a seat,and told a boy to do the same for the other. “I won’t,” the youngster replied. The man seized limby tho collar, pulled him out of the seat, lectured him on the duty of politeness, subiequently paid a fine of $5 in court. The population of New South Wales is, by the recent census, 50,000. Not very considerable when it is remembered that the colony has an area more than five times as great as the State of New York, is over eighty years old, and has for years presented the attraction of gold fields. The people of New South Wales are, in fact,a1>ont as many as those of Leeds, which IS not even a city, in the mother country. A Bonmanian engbeer, Trajan Theodoresco by name, has invented a new description of torpedo or submarine boa t,. whose peculiarity is that it is capable of manoeavring under water at twelve hours on a stretch. It is able to act at depths 6om 100 feet in rivers to 700 or 800 feet m the sea. I t is able through the agency of screws, to rise or sink noiselesf>ly,and either suddenly or gradually by successive stages, and can move or manceuvre in any direction. ' The illumination of the vessel is internal, and enables the officers upon her to see for a distance of 150 feet under water. Kesistance to the new prohibi tory laws of Kansas has gone so £ar that while juries in the cities refuse to convict liqnor sellers, even npon the clearest evidence, in Atchison the Common Council, wilji the cooperation of its presiding officer,the Mayor, has adopted an ordinance, providing for the granting of licenses to tavern and saloons. This action was taken in express ridicule in defiance of the prohibitory constitutional amendment and the laws based npon it. The temperance men have since then had a mass meetmg, and called npon the Mayor to resign, while Gov. St. John threatened to call out the militia and put the laws into execor tion by force of arms. All this because the population of the cities is not willing to be deprived of its beer by the mtal population’s temperance predilections. He w an ted P a rtic a la rs .
