A blond young man with a florid cheek and a laughing blue eye, who sat in an easy posture at the foot of the table, aided the diversion of interest "Won't you introduce me, Mrs. Keene? or must I take the opportunity to tell Mr. Gordon that I am Dr. Rigdon, very much at his service." "Mercy! yes, yes, indeed!" Mrs.

"Master Keene," said Mr O'Gallagher, "we'll let the account stand over till the evening, and then I'll give you a receipt in full; I may have one or two lines to add to it before the sun goes down; you'll not escape me this time, anyhow." The boys went out at the dinner hour, leaving me, as before, to wait for my basket, after the tyrant had helped himself.

When he was approximately a hundred yards from the Maryland Private Hospital for Ladies and Gentlemen he saw Doctor Keene, the family physician, descending the front steps, rubbing his hands together with a washing movement as all doctors are required to do by the unwritten ethics of their profession.

You will observe that it is one of a seris notable men of the day. I supply the "Chronicle" with a London letter, and give them one of these little sketches fortnightly.

I then looked around me, and it was evident that the water was not so agitated as it had been; the wind too had subsided; its roaring had ceased, although it still whistled strong. "Cross!" said I. "Here I am, Captain Keene, close under your lee." "The gale is broke; we shall have fair weather before the morning." "Yes, sir; I have thought so some time."

"We boys came to the Philippines to assist the government in unearthing this plot and bringing the leaders to punishment, and there seems to be nothing more to be done."
