ture and thinks, "It is mtnch prettier
than Major Emerick's."
"A go ahead nose," continues Voltaire
Lucy inserts a go ahead nose into the
blank, over and a little ahead of the
mustache. Third picture.
"No mumps 'round his cheeks and
chin." the describer went on.
Not a mump had ever disttgured the
cheeks Lucy hereupon balanced on either
ride of the nose and the chin which she
had located under the two chestnmt
loaves. Picture fourth.
"Eyes blue as that saucer"—Voltaire
pointed to a piece of delicate china—
•'and they look like the holy anjels."
Into their sockets Lucy inserted a pair
of orlw, saucer in color, not in shape,
and gave them a holy, angelic expres-
sion. She insisted the growing j>or-
trait with her own sweet eyes—they
were hazel, "an excellent thing in
woman"—and bus1111 to think the illu-
mined face very charming.
"Lots of tan on his bark," resumed
the painter in words.
Lucy dipped her pencil in umber and
gave the bark of cheeks, chin and nose
a nut brown tint that bravely backed
the gold of the mustac he.

"Yellow, if you please, Voltaire,' she
protested, and with skillful thought: she
adjusted the coiffure.
An imaginary cue, tied with a t am-
bled black ribbon, had l>een tabbing in
the air near the hero's cerebellum. Lacy
docked it, and with a scornful gesture
sent it whirling off into the unseen.
"Now," says Voltaire, "you jess stick
in troot (truth), wercher (virtue), ker-
ridge (courage) and all the other gcod
things into that are face; you jess clap
on a smile that'll make a dough heart in
a bc«om turn into light gingerbreftd,

all that in your eye, Miss Lucy, and
you've got Major Skerrett."
"And can this gentleman help?" she
asked earnestly as soon as she had his
person before her eyes.
"Help!" 6ays Voltaire; "he can't help
helping. That's his business under this
Tlio negro stated briefly the scheme
for Kerr's capture and her abduction.
Lucy comprehended the whole in a
"Major Skerrett sent you a message,
Miss Lucy," says the successful envoy,
closing his report.
"Me!" she said. She massacred a
little scruple that Major Kerr's be-
trothed ought not to be receiving messa-
ges from strange majors. "What is it!
He is very kind to think of me."
"He said, 'Tell Miss Brothertoft to be
brave, to l>e prudent and to keep hoi
room with a headache until we are ready
"It makes me brave and prudent, n6w
that I have a strong friend to trust. But
the headache I had is all gone. I never
felt so well and happy in my life."
"Look at him!" Volbure rejoined,
pointing to Kerr through the pantry
window. "That will make you ache
from your head to vonr heels."
She did look, and ached at once with
fresh resentment and disgust.
Kerr was leaning limp against a tree,
breathing tipsily his nine oxygen azote.
The golden hills, the blue river and the
mountains, blue and gold, had nb charms
for him. He was thinking, "Almost
time to make it seven bells. I can't
touch anything stronger than six water
grog this morning. Oh, my head!"
"Pretty fellow fur a lubber to my
young lady!" says Voltaire. His mis-
pronunciation revealed a truth.
This faithful blackamoor now pro-
ceeded to act Othello relating his ad-
ventures. He had a tragicomic episode
to impart of his "hairbreadth 'scapes,"
"of being taken by the insolent foe," of
all "his 'portance in his travel's history,"
and what he suffered, shin and sole^U!
the "rough quarries, rocks and hills"
back of Anthony's Nose, while he dodged
by night along the bypaths.
Lucy "gave him for hi* pains a world
of sighs," and "loved him for the dan-
gers he had passed" in her service.
"Now," said the loyal squire, in con-
clusion, "I must set you something to
do, Miss Lucy."
"Wkat?" she asked, trembling a littls
"Send Dewitt and Sally Bilsby off
home. They'll want a frolic after work-
ing so hard on your wedding dress. W«
must have the house to ourselves to-
"Tonight! Lucy's heart bounded and
sunk. Yes, she must be free tonight, or
tomorrow would make her a slave.
"Miss Lucy," whispered Voltaire, "tw#
of 'em was here already before sunriso."
"Not the"— She hesitated.
"Not the major! No; old Sam Gaala-
worthy and Hendrecns Canady. Yon
know 'em. They come to see how the
"Mother calls; I must go," said Lucy
in a tremor.
She gave one look through the win-
dow at Kerr, leaning limp against a
chestnut tree. The Skerrett mustache
colored leaves in myriad pairs shook
over him. She seemed to see a myriad
of faces, with go ahead noses, no mumps,
angelic blue eyes, bronzed skins and
truth and courage in every line, looking
out of the tree and signalizing her, "Be
brave! be prudentr
Sappho's great experiment of dinner
suffered. She put sugar in heraoap and
■alt in her pudding. She sowed allspice
for peppercorns, and vice versa. She
overdid the meat that should have been
underdone. She roasted her gooae until
its akin was plate armor. .She baked
her piecrust hard as Westchester shale.
Yesterday's dinner was sublime; today's
would toe ridiculous. Conspiracy upsets
domestic economy, as it does political.
When Voltaire had deranged his wife
with dark hints he proceeded to perplex
Plato was lord of the stables. These
were times of war. Westchester was
beginning to suffer for being neutral
ground for rebel and Tory to plunder.
Rents came slow at Brothertoft manor,
and when they came were short. Econ-
omy must be consulted. That crafty
counselor suggested that Plato's helpers
in the stable should be discharged and
he do throe men's work. He was al-
lowed, however, Bilsby juvenissimus
and another urchin from the manor to
chore" for him. They were unpaid
attaches. They did free service as
stablo boys, for the honor and education
of the thing, for the privilege of chew-
ing straws among the horses and for the
luxury of a daily bellyful of pork and
pudding and a nightly bed in the loft.
Voltaire went out to the stable. The
six white horses of famous Lincolnshire
stock stood, three on this side, three on
that. Their long tails occasionally
switched to knock off the languid last
flies of summer.
Voltaire stopped at the coachhous*
door to drive out a noisy regiment of
chickens. A lumbering old coach, of
the leathern conveniency order, was
shoved away in a corner. There is al-
ways such a vehicle in every old family
stable—a stranded ark, that n« horse
power will ever stir again.
"Nineteen year ago," thought the
ancient Brothertoft retainer; "nineteen
year ago last June I drew Mister Edwin
and that Billop gal in that conveniency,
less than two hundred yards from her
.hduse in Wall street to Trinity church,
to be married. I lieerd the Trinity bells
say, 'Edwin Brothertoft, don't marry a
LSillop!' I felt it in my bones that she'd
turn out mean. Her money brought
worse luck than we'd ever had before.
And the good luck hasn't got holt yet.
"Plato," says he, stepping into the
great picturesque stable, half full of
sunshine, half of shade and half of hay,
fragrant as the Fourth of July.
"Sir!" says Plato, drawing himself up
and giving a military salute. He had
seen much soldiering going on of late
and liked to play at it—a relic perhaps
of gorilla imitativeness.
"Them boys don't look to me in good
Voltaire pointed to Bilsby and mate.
They were both chewing straws—a pair
of dull sharps, like mo9t young clodhop
pers. They could tell a calf from a colt
with supernatural keenness; but were
of the class which gets itself well Peter
Funked before its manhood learns the
time of day.
"Dey's fat, ragged and sassy as ary
boys dis chile ever 3eed," rejoined Plato.
"Bory weakly dey looks," continued
the conspirator. "Fallin away horrible!
Nebtr see sich sickly boys 'n all my
born days. Chestnuts is what dey
wants. Worms is de trouble. Boys al
ways git worms onless dey eats suthin
onto a bushel of chestnuts in de fall."
The two ragamuffins dropped their
straws, turned pale and began to feel
snakes wake and crawl within them,
"Now, boys," says Voltaire impress-
ively, "if you want ter perwent dem
varmint, jess you put fur de woods an
fill yourself plum full ob chestnuts."
"But chestnuts has worms, too," ob-
"9o much do better; d-jy'll eat yourn.
Go 'long, now. Stay hum tonight and
don't come roirn here fore tomorrow
noon. Be keerfle, now! Eat all today
and pick tomorrow to keep. You don't
look to me like boys who is pn-jiared to
TUo pair obeyed and departed solemn-
ly. Nothing but chestnuts'could save
them froin the worm that never dieth.
There were two very grave and earnest
lads that day cracking burrs in the
groves of Brothertoft manor.
rlato stared in consternation as he
siw his regiment disbanded.

PART THREE—CHAPTER V.
Portentous all the morning wa* Vol-
taire to Sappho.
Now cookery, like chemistry, must
have peace to perform its experiments in-
Poor Sappho, with her husband dart-
ing into the kitchen, looking mysterious,
exploding "Hushf and darting off
again, was as much flustered^* a nerv-
ous chemical professor when his pupils
jeer his juggles with cabbage liquor and
torn up rebellious noses at his olaflant
Voltaire winked with both <^es and
"Don't you ask me no questions,
Plato," says he, "an you won't have no
lies to complex yer mind. I meant to
clare de kitchen, ole fokes, young fokes,
an so I scared off dem toys, ho, ho!
Now I'ze gwine to gib you a conundrum,
Plato let go Volante's tail, which he
was combing, and pricked up his ears.
"What does a young lady do when
she don't want to marry her fust hus-
"Marries her second," guessed Plato
"Plato! I'ze ashamed of you. Dat
would be bigamy."
The crestfallen groom gave it up.
"You gib it up?" says the propounder.
"Well, she says to her coachman, it's
bery mysterious dat de coachman's name
is Plato. She says to him, Plato!"
"What?" interjected the other.
"Neber interrumpde speaker!" chided
Voltaire. "She says, 'Plato, you know
my mare.' Says he, 'Your mare Vol-
anty, miss?" Says she—it's mysterious,
but Volanty is her name—'Now, Plato,
you jess poot anudder oat in her man-
ger an groom- her slick as a het grid-
dle, and see de girts and de bridle is
right.' And says she, 'Plato, don't you
complex your mind wedder de answer
to dat conundrum ain't suthin about
runnin away. But jess you wait till de
sebben seal is opened.'"
Here the namesake of him of Ferney
gave a wise binocular wink.
The other philosopher's namesake also
eclipsed his whites with a binocular
wink. He divined where his sire had
been traveling in the past thirty-six
hours. He had nodded through the
watches of last night to let the senior in
undiscovered. He knew of the inter'
view with old Sam Galsworthy and
Hendrecns Canady an hour before sun-
rise. He comprehended enough of the
plot to enjoy it as a magnificent connn
drum which he could guess at all day,
sure that the seven seals of mystery
would be opened by and by.
Voltaire limped back to the house and
his pantry. His butler countenance fell
as he contemplated the empty bottles of
yesterday's banquet. He could almost
have wept them full if he had known
any chemistry to change salt tears to
"How these redcoats drinkT be mut-
tered. "Oar celiac wont last many
more such campaigns. I must get up
some fresh wine for today, and s little
braadv to deteriorate Maiar Kerr."* • *
Lucy, leaving Voltaire in the pantry,
as was described, ran up stairs and
faced her wedding dress without flinch-
ing. It is not generally a sight to blanch
the cheeks of a young lady. Indeed,
one may fancy that, a rose finer than
roses might bud in the heart, and bloom
from neck to forehead, when a bride
first beheld the lily white drapery of her
hour of immolation.
Lucy neither blanched nor blushed.
"Be brave! be prudent!" the warning
of her unseen protector was ringing in
her ears. She saw it. inscribed on a
label aud hanging from the lips of her
vision of his face. The brave do not
blanch. The prudent do not blush. So
she quietly joined the busy circle, took
a needle and stabbed the wedding dress
It was a monstrous relief thus to kill
time. She did herself, for the hour,
her "quietus make with a bare bodkin,"
and the other weapons of a modiste.
Stitch, stitch, etitch! Seam ami nus>set Rn(j
"Ah!" she thought, "what a blessing
is this distraction of labor! I have shed
my tears. If I were to sit inactive
might brood myself into despair. If 1
were to think over my wrong I might
flame out too soon. If I look at my
mother I lx?gin to dread her again. I
know she could master me still. O
my God! sustain me through these last
hours of my peril! I never knew how
great it was until now. I foresaw a
misery, but the degradation of giving
myself up to this man I never even
dreamed of. I am ashamed, ashamed
to recall that there have been instants
when I tolerated him, when I thought
that he was not so very gross and
coarse. I pray God that the sacrednesS
of my sc-nl is not spoiled."
A great agony stirred in her maidenly
bosom at this thought. She bent closer
to her work. She knew that her
mother's eyes were upon her. She
heard, without marking, tho tattle of
,fFly, little needle!" she said to her-
self. "Measure off this pause in my
life! Every stitch is a second. Sixty
are a minute. Minutes make hours,
and hours wear out the weary day.
Evening must come. If 1 can but be
brave and prudent 1 shall beo my father
and his noble friend and be safe."
Her needle galloped at the excitement
of the thought.
Mrs. Brothertoft looked at her and
said to her heart with a sneer; "Pretty
creature! she consoles herself, it seems
Our boozy, rubicund bridegroom begins
to look quite pale and interesting, seen
through a bridal veil. The touch of
white silk cures her scruples easily. Ah!
the blushing bride will be resigned to
her bliss. Bah! that I—I should dread
such a pretty, silly trifler! What a fool
I was to think her different from other
simpering girls! So this is the meaning
of all her coy little wiles and her head-
aches. Headaches! She may have as
many as she pleases now in her pensive
bower. Ah! 1 comprehend thee now,
fair hypocrite! The slender fingers are
impatient for the ring. Fly, little bird,
to the bosom of thy spouse. Perhaps he
will not quite crush thy poqr, silly heart.
And I have been afraid of her! She ts
so tickled with her wedding favors that
she will presently be kissing me again
for gratitude with more fervor thnn
ever. But I am sick of her simplicity.
I am tired cf her 'Dearest mammas!' I
3hould strangle her, I dare say, if she
were not taken off. She grows more
like that E<l win Brothertoft lately."
"Your dress is ready to try on, Miss
Lucy," saic Mrs. Jierck Dewitt.
So there was a mighty rustle, and a
headless, armless torso of stiff whito
silk rose up and stood on its skirt. It

In setting forth the advantages of a city io attract capital and
Immigration it is too mnch the style to give possibilities for facts,
and to depend upon fancy rather than fignres. The city of Gaines-
ville has heretofore been very modest in announcing lo the great
migratory public its claims to a part of the attention tb lis being be-
stowed upon new and growing places.
Gainesville, the county seat of Oooke, is near the center of th
county, six miles south of Red river. On all sides are rich agricul
tnral lands. These lands produce almost anything that is grown in
North America. The great staple productions are wheat, cotton,
corn, oats, barley, millet and other grasses.
Oooke county raises annually about 20,000 bales of cotton. This
is handled at Gainesville and usaally brings about $800,000 in cash.
The wheat crop is large, while cattle raising and beef shipping also
bring in large amounts of money.
The Indian Territory, just north of Gainesville,is opening upand
her wholesale merchants are doing a large trade with that country.
All she needs to control the trade of a large portion ofthf.fcrich
country is capital enough to handle the wholesale trade in all lines of
Not a Mushroom Town.
Gainesville is not one of those "Jonah's gourd vine" places
made of tents aud box houses ready to be pulled up and moved away
as soon as some temporary attraction ceases. It is built to stay.
It was fonnded in 1849, but like most towns on the wild frontier,
without railroads and far from navigation, it was only a small village-
for many "years.
She has a system of street railways, telephone exchange, gas and'
electric light works, etc.
The water system is the best in the state, with the exception1
perhaps of Waco, both in the quality of water furnished and the
efficiency of the machinery.
Gainesville is a solid, well established place.that has reached its
present position by a steady, healthy growth.
But it has by no means reached its limit. It has possibilities
arising from its position and from other causes that ought to, sad
we believe will, make it one of the best and most thriving townflaiin
She needs more capital in the wholesale business to hold the
trade of the country tributary to her.
She needs several factories, mills, etc. A good cotton seed oil
mill is one of her pressing needs. The cotton seed is at our doors and
we have the cattle to fatten on the oil cake. We need a canning
factory to put up the fruits and vegetables, which our farmers allow
to waste every year. A tannery could find all the hides it could use
and a market for all the leather it could make.
Various other enterprises would pay here, and we need men of
brains, skill and capital to help us occupy the field that promises
such good returns.
Every man who is not a drone can find an opening here no mat-
ter whether his capital consists in skill, musftle or money.

Gainesville's first road was the Denison and Pacific, built from
Denison and reaching here in 1879. It was the terminus of this
road until 1886, when the great Santa Fe system built through fren*
Galveston and connected with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe
from the north. Then the Gainesville, Henrietta and Western was
built from here to Heniietta, where it connects with the Fort Worth
and Denver aud gives us connections with the Panhandle and New
The Santa Fe has its division headquarters, round house and
machine shops here. These shops are of great advantage to us from
the number of men employed and paid and the general air of business
they give the city.
Recently the Missouri, Kansas and Texas, which had absorbed
both the Denison and Pacific and the Gainesville, Henrietta and
Western, has filed its charter and combined them both into the great
M., K. & T. system.
These roads give us outlets in all directions.
No Better Place Can Be Found
By any man who is hunting a live, growing, conservative, well
regulated city in which to make a home or start a business.
To those who seek such a place we say: You will not have to
ievelop untried possibilities, but you will find a well regulated, grow-
ing city not yet large enough for the country, whose business ought
ro be controlled by it. You will find a good opening andjk hearty
welcome from her people.
No city in the United States has a better system of graded
schools and high schools.
We have four splendid brick school buildings costing near $100,-
000. There are about 1200 children in attendance, and a splendid
corps of competent and well paid teachers have charge of them.
Then we have the Gainesville College with a good attendance
and a fine corps of teachers.
Also the Texas Synodical College, which has just been taken
charge of by by the Presbyterian Synod of Texas, and will now be
perhaps the finest female school in Texa&.
What We Have
The taxable property of the city footed up, in 1891, $3,561,435.
And this is no fictitious value put on to enable the city to issue bonds.
Gainesville has eleven white and three eolored churoh organiza-
tions, all of which except one have ehnroh buildings and that one
soon will have. It has also a strong Y. M. O. A. organisation, fitted
up with splendid parlors, library and gymnasium.
Factories, Mills, Etc.
Gainesville has two splendid roller patent flouring mills, an ioc
factory, an iron foundry, a broom iketory, cigar frctory, bottling
works, soap factory, planing mills, maekine Mops, a cotton comprea*
and various smaller institutions.
