The old actor’s daughter sat silent and thoughtful for:»time. She was revolv- to, in her mind scenes and incidents of w hich her father was entirely ignorant Let ns describe them. It was a jieriod three months previous to the foregoing conversation. The mother had just been laid in the cold pure, and the father was, as now, un- Jhle to leave his room. The wolf was hovering around their door, .and Marie, timid in action, but bravWin heart, had jemlved to assist the parent she loved so dearly. It was a bitter winters evening when jhe left her home for the pnrpoee. The riipp blast cut her to the very heart, as shed.ow her thin mantle around her. But she had read in the papers that girls wer> . wanted for the ballet at one of the theaters. They were to apply at the rtage door that morning, but she had been unable to leave her father’s aide at that time. She feared she would be too Ute; still she could but try. On reaching the stage door her heart almost failed her; but their home again me no before her, and she ventured to iccost the doorkeeper. -Want to see the stage manager, ehT ••Yes, sir, if you please." ••Better wait till tomorrow.' -I tried to come today, sir. Hut could not." "Indeed! Oh, here he comes; you can apply to him now." That functionary happened to be pass ing, and hearing the words understood their import at once. He turned a marching look upon the poor girl, and was about to pass on. But he caught light of her face in'the gaslight, and said: “Not bad looking if she is in rags. So you want an engagement ehf "Yes, sir, if you please,” replied Marie. "To play Lady Macbeth, I suppose?’ “No, sir; for the ballet.” "Oh! Ever been on the stage before?” '•Only as a child, sir.* “Ob, only as a child I Do you sing?” "Yes, sir—very well." “Very well, so you think; I might not. Do you „ nee?" "Yes, sir. Father was an actor, and he says I dance very weU." "Oh, then yon can come tomorrow and try it." “1 will be here, sir." "Bring your props with you." Poor Marie hesitated; and the mana ger, observing this, said: “Oh, perhaps yon don't know what I mean by props. Well, they are your feathers, jewels, ribbons, laces, tights, slippers, gloves, ud so on. Ws only furnish the body of your dress. The poor girl still hesitated, when the manager asked again. “Can’t yon fur nish your own props?*’ “I fear not at first, sir," was the timid reply. "Then we don’t want you.' The manager turned away, and Marie daggered toward the door, half blinded vith grief and disappointment. But ere •he had passed it a gentle hand -was laid npou her shoulder, and a sweet voice exclaimed, “My dear child, come and *ee me tomorrow as early as possible. Sere is my address." Uu i U Marie viewed the extended card and turned her eyee toward the speaker. She *as a brilliant creature, and the poor girl tried to stammer forth a reply, but could not. She left the theater and took her way homeward. She could not help thinking of the beautiful lady and her magnificent dress, sparkling with jewels. What could she want with her? Even bright picture* of the future rose before her vision, and these dulled the •hatpnees of her grief at the disappoint- ment she had met with. She did not tell her father what, she jiad done, or that she hud an engagement to mee* one the great ladies. the tbsater. On the next day Marie culled at the Ike® designated upon the card. Her was a lengthened one, but when •he emerged from the lady’s presence •he looked compamtivcly happy. Onec? theflrsttbtngfMane did after tctnrnirg home was to find the half fin ked play which her father was wri* 1 and alone in her own apartment •h® pasted much time over It' She was •*> from her home a great deal, during *hich time her father supposed her to "* at labor in the tailoring establiah- ®*®t where she occasionally fonnd tkmact.

She ® eca ®e very pale, and-at the time the conversation between herself and father, lips to her father’s brow. She neia ms hand in her own for u moment, and tear drops fell upon it. ’Then she said: “Father, the darkest time is just be fore the dawn. Cheer up. I will re turn in a few hours, and tomorrow we will be richer than we are today." The daughter left that wretched home. But no sooner had she taken her depar ture than her father began to think of her last words. They were strange. What could they mean? What act did Marie contemplate? At first a suspicion swept across his mind-vague—but gradually assuming form. But as the thought pressed upon his brain it began to madden him, and for hours he tossed upon his bed of pain, calling for hiB child, praying for her safe return. ' . '* Midnight came and passed, and still Marie came not Several times had the old actor resolved to arise and go in search of her, but lie had not strength to do so, and as often would fall back upon his pillow, groaning in the agony of his soul. ~ Daylight same and still Marie had not arrived. But just as the sun began to throw its golden rays over the city, a carriage was heard to drive up before the actor’s house. He listened. He heard a footfall upon the stairs and he recogniz ed the footstep. In a moment after Marie burst into the room. She rushed to her father’s ride and, throwing her arms around him. she wept The old man did the same; but he ob served that Marie’s dress was now of rich material and. putting her away, he 'contemplated her for a moment with a mournful expression.

The Indians had been bringing down small quantities of horn silver for some time arid selling it at Merida. Finally, one of the half breed merchants of that town got an Indian drunk and induced him to tell where they obtained the silver. They say" it was'one of the mines from which the Aztecs, or whatever race it was that built the cities, the ruins of which cover so many miles in that country, used to get the silver for their temples. At all events, the merchant came back with two burros laden with almost pure sil ver. He said that there was silver enough in sight at the mine to load a fleet of steamers. He told in a general way where the treasure mountain was, and started out with a pack train for more. One of his mules strayed back nearly a month later, but that was all that was ever heard of him. “I was one of the swarm of prospectors that started out to find the old mine.
