whether he got off the train iu Canada or nn this side nnd walked to the

An historical exhibition of clocks

The Confession Tallies Wilh the Discoveries at the Scene of the Crline���Heiuler-
shott'B Daughter's story Was True���
Kev. Mr. Spin,,.,- Should Speak.
It now turns out, .-ays the St.
Thomas Times, that William P. Welter, who wns hanged with John Hen-
shott on Tuesday morning for thc
murder of William Henderahott on
the morning of December 1-tth Inst,
maflo another confession of his guilt
other than that made to tlielr spiritual adviser, Kev, D. Spencer.
Kdward I.nngun. sou., turnkey, who
had visited the prisoners daily, and
frequently had long conversations
with them, was witli them on tlie
morning ol the execution. Welter
was very much depressed nnd seemed
anxious to confess his guilt before he
went to the gallows, sir. Langan
approached him nnd addressing Welter, said: I
*' Bill, tnke my advice and ninke n
clean breast of the whole affair before it is too late. If you, know- anything nt all about it. you ought to
put public feeling tit rest."
Welter nt once commenced to relate
the particulars of the tragedy which
took place on that memorable day
in Win-dells woods. He said that
lie did tiie died, nnd thnt tlie tree'
did not fall upon tlie victim...
"Was .lohn Ucndersliott present?"
asked Sir. Langan,
'* No, John wns not present. I carried but the execution alone.'
"Then tlie story told by Mary Lily
Henderahott that her father was at
that 'moment driving with her at
Eden, 28 miles away from the scene
of the tragedy, is true?"
"Yes," answered Welter. "Her
story wns true, and she knew nothing
of the tragedy. The statement that
she held her father's liorse while he
entered tlie woods and assiatnd me
to murder young Hentlershott is entirely false."
The fact brought out iu the evidence at the time that John Hender-
shott was oa his way to Etleu, which
was corroborated by several people
who saw him on the road In coiupiiuy
with his daughter.
At this moment Kev. D. Spencer wus
admitted to the corridor, and Sir.
Lnngan unlocked the cells of the
prisoners. As soon ns they were admitted to the outer corridor tliey at
onco fell upon Mr. Spencer's nock, nnd
placing nu arm around each of them
he led them Into a further corner,
where for a. few minutes they re-
ranined deeply absorbed in a conversation concerning the confession they
hnd started to repeat to Sir, Langan,
Sir. Langan, however, was not able
to hear nny of this conversation.
While Welter was relating thc
facts of the murder to Sir. Lnngnu,
Hcndershott nodded his head ia acquiescence and seemed to eagerly
weigh the words of his friend.
Welter was about to enter upon the
details of the tragedy nnd forever
place beyond the public doubt Hen-
dershott's complicity in the crime,
when Rev. Mr. Spencer interrupted
the recital.
Mr. Langan believes that ho would
have at that moment made a clean
breast of the affair, nnd hnd he, Sir.
Langan says, lie would have given It
to tlie public. Ho nlso believes Welter
wns telling tlie truth.
Did Hendershott know of tlie murder? Did he instigate It, and if so,
whnt was to ho Welter's reward?
are facts winch will never be known,
nnd it |a not likely tin t Sir. Spencer
himself is iu possession of this Information,
Tho Journal thus describes the
It hnd been arranged that Hendershott should go to Eden to avert suspicion and that Welter should striko
tho fntal blow. Hendorsliott was
not present when the crime was committed, but nt the tlmo wras in Aylmer or driving on tho road to Eden.
His daughter Mary Llllie's evidence as
to their movements on that duy was
correct In every particular.
Welter and his victim arrived nt
tho woods ou tho dny of tho killing
about ono o'clock. First a small sapling wus cut down, then the two men
commenced to fell tho tree, the stump
trunk, and branches of whicli havo
been so much in cvldonco sinco tlio
tragedy. They chopped and sawed
until the treo was nearly ready to
full. A skid hnd not been got ready,
and the two men stopped and wont
to cut tho skid. The, skid was chopped by Welter from tiio end ol     tho
old ing nt tiie branches of tho fallen treo on which deceased's vest and
watch wero afterwards found lying.
Will Henderahott rolled tho skid to
tho spot whero It had been decided
tn place the body. Welter walked
behind hlui carrying tlio axe, and at
the place whero tiio skid was afterwards found under tlio treo Welter
raised tlie nxo nnd dealt the fatal
blow on tlie back of his head. Tills
was tlio blow which fractured the
victim's skull, and ho led forward
dead thero is no doubt. But tlio murderer lost his nerve, and dealt his
prostrato victim a number of spasmodic nnd aimless blows on tho head.
Welter having slain his victim
placed him In lino of tho treo, and
proceeded to complete the felling of
it.. Ho continued tho sawing with
tlio cross-cut saw nlouo, thus accounting lor tho jagged saw marks
on thnt part of tho trunk lust lit*
foro the treo fell. Welter then carried tho body to tho top of tho tree
and first tried to put It under the
branches at tho crotch, but finally
placed the head under tho trunk of
tho tree, at the knot, where It wns
afterwards found.
Welter then proceeded    to conceal
tho traces of his crime. The deceasod
led where he was lirst struck, aud
that was where the skid lay. What
were called pools of blood, and supposed to have fallen from the murdered man as lie staggered around,
were leaves taken from the spot
where the murder was actually committed. There was nothing more
natural under tho circumstances than
that one should clean the leaves out
of the hollow place, carry the bloody
leaves, put them iu other spots and
6tnmp them down, and then again
scatter clean leaves over them, and
tliis Is exactly what Welter did, but
h6 did not make as clean a Job of it
as he might. The excitement under
which he labored, as a .result of the
murder, was intensified by the fact
that he saw Mrs. Smuck passing
through the not very dense woods,
just as the tree fell, and he did not
know who would come next. Then,
while ho was nt work disposing of
tlio body and removing traces ol tho
murder, ho heard Mr. Sanders enter
his woods, adjoining the Wnrdcll
woods, nntl commence work. This
added to Welter's haste pud excitement, for lie did not know
tho minute he would bo
discovered. ��� Alter disposing of
the leaves ns stated, and placing deceased's vest and wntch on the log at
tlio head of tho tree where they were
found, he washed tho blood-stained
axe la the pool of reddish water of
which Mr. Gregory spoke, shoved the
axe underneath the bark of the fnllen
log, where it was fouod by Messrs.
Swisher and Campbell, nntl stnrted, ns
lind been arranged between him and
Hendershott, to notify 0. P. Welter.
Ou tho way there he took his bloody
overalls off In Charley Welter's lane.
Arriving nt Sir. Welter's ne told tho
story of tho accident as hud been arranged beforehand, and with nil of
the circumstances which lollowcd tho
public are fully aware.
It will be remembered that .Mrs.
Slahlon Griffin, a cousin of W. I). Wel-
ter, who was at C. Welter's when tlie
former arrived there, did not notice
any blood on his face, but that nfter-
wurds when she went up to John A.
HandeirslHott's house, where Welter
had gone, she noticed sninll specks of
blood about tlie size of pin liends on
ids face. She then noticed them, lie-
cnuse Welter had asked her to put in
his collar button, nnd while doing so
nnd close up tn iriiu slio noticed the
blood spots. Sho remarked, " Oh,
Will! there are blood marks on your
face," and he went and washed them
off. SVelter hnd just takeu off his
bloody shirt beforo Mrs. Griffin arrived, and put a clean ono on. Had
the Crown followed up the questioning of Mrs. Griffin on thoso lines these
facts would have been elicited and It
might have been d'scovered w-ho washed welter's bloody shirt.
Although not participating In the
actual crime, Hendershott made no
attempt to deny the equality of his
guilt with that of Welter. Both men
assumed full responsibility lor the
cri'ue, nnd neither attempted to lay
an undue measure of blame on the
other. There wero no recriminations,
nnd both men were firm friends to the
last.        .       ..;:
What They, Are According to Dr.
GIRLS   NOW   00   IN   FAIRS.
Their Dresses Planned to Set One
Another Off.
A divorce waa recently granted to
Mrs. "William K. Vahderbilt from her
husband on -statutory grounds. The
couple had been married some twenty
years, had a daughter Just reaching
young -womanhood, and had long
been shining lights of the first circles
of New York, Newport and the American colony in Parh*.
The relations of tlie husband witb
ono Nellie Neustrctter, widely known
in shady European society, furnished
ground for the divorce. Maintenance
of these relations he never denied. Ilia
association with the woman was so
open and notorious that denial would
have been ridiculous. Most of tho
show places of Europe saw them together. Her coachmen wore his
liveries. His yacht bore her to the
pleasure resorts of the Mediterranean.
But now comes Ynnderbilt, explaining through his friends, that he
only resorted to tho society of the
Neustrctter n/oman in order to get
rid of his wife. By Innuendo attack
is mado upon the reputation of Mrs.
Yanderbllt, but no direct charge Is
mado nor was opportunity glveu her
to secure public vindication In court.

the abandoned wife, it was freely extended witli flattering courtcslM

Tbe lloini* Woman Contrasted With the
Womttii ot Fashion - -lhe Power aud the
Inliuence of Home Over Which Woman
Kult's as Oueeu.
St. Louis, June 16.���In his sermon tu-
day Rev. Dr. Talmage, who has reached this city on his western tour, discussed a subject, "Woman's Opportunity," his teott being, "She shall be
called woman," Genesis Ii., 2'S. He expressed himself as favoring woman
suffrage, but he held that the best
rights that woman can own she already
has In her possession; that her position
at this time is not one of commiseration, but ono of congratulation; that
the grandeur and power of her realm
have never yet been appreciated ; that
sbe sits to-day on a throne so high
that all the thrones of earth piled un
top of each other would not make for
her a footstool. Here is the platform
on which she Btands. Away down below it are the ballot box, and the congressional assemblage, and the legislative hall. Woman always has voted
and always will vote. Our great-grandfathers thought they were by their
votes putting Washington into the
presidential chair. No. His mother,
by the principles she taught him and
by the habits she Inculcated, made
him president. It was a Christian
mother's hand dropping the ballot
when Lord Bacon wrote, and Newton
philosophized, and Alfred the Great
governed, and Jonathan Edwards tliun-
deied of Judgment to come.
My chief anxiety is not that woman
have other rights accorded her, but that
she, by the grace of God, rise up to the
appreciation of the glorious rights she
already possesses. First, she has the
right to make home happy. That
realm no one has ever disputed with
her. It Is within her power to make
It the most attractive place on earth.
Your abode may be humble, but you
can, by your faith in God and your
cheerfulness of demeanor, gild It with
splendors such as an upholsterer's hand
never yet kindled.
There are abodes In every city���humble, two Btories, four plain, unpapersd
rooms, undesirable neighborhood, and
yet there ts a man who would die on
the threshold rather than surrender.
Why? It is home. Whenever he thinks
of it, he sees angels of God hovering
around It. The ladders of heaven are
let down to that house. Over the child's
rough crib there are the chantllngs of
angels as those that broke over Bethlehem. It Is home. These children
may come up after awhile, and they
may win high position, and they may
have an affluent residence, but they
will not until their dying day forget
that humble roof under whlSh their father rested, and their mother sang,
and their sisters played. Oh, If you
would gather up all tender memories,
all the lights and shades of the heart,
all banquetings and reunions, all lllial,
fraternal, paternal and conjugal affections, and you had only Just four letters with which to spell out that height
and depth and length and breadth and
magnitude and eternity of meaning,
you would, with streaming eyes and
trembling voice, and agitated hand,
write It out in those four living capitals, H-O-M-E.
He described thf* sweet, loving, pure,
devoted home mother, who was the
joy of the young life and added:
To make one such grand woman as
I have described, how many thousands
would you want of those people who
go in the round of fashion and dissipation, going as far towards disgraceful apparel as they dare go, so as not
to bo arrested hy the police**-their behavior a sorrow to tbe good and a
caricature of the vicious, and an insult
to that God who made them women
and not gorgons, and the tramping on
down through a frivolous and dissipated life to temporal and eternal damnation,
O woman, with the lightning of your
soul, strike dead at yoar foet all tliese
allurements to dlssapatlon and to fashion. Your Immortal soul cannot be
fed upon HUCh garbage. Uod rails you
up "to empire and dominion. Will ynu
havo It? Oh, give to God your heart;
give to God all your best energies;
give to God all your culture; give to
God all your rellnemeni; givo yourself
to Him, for this world and tlie next.
Soon ail these bright eyes will be
quenched, and these voices wili he
hushed. For the last time you will
look upon this fair earth, Father's
hand, mother's band, sister's hand,
child's baud, will no more be in yours.
It will be night, and tliere will eome
up a cold wind from the Jordan, and
ynu must start. Will It be a 1 me woman on a trackless moor? Alt, no!
Jesus will eome up In that hour and
offer Hi:' hand, and He will say, "Vou
stood by me when you were well;
now I will not desert you when you
aii' sirk." fmo wave of Uiu ban.I and
tin* storm wilt drop, and another wav*;
of His hand, and midnight sliall break
Into mid-noon, and another wave of
His hand, and Lhe chamberlains of
Unit will come down from th,* treasure
houses of heaven, with robes lustrous,
blood washed and heaven glinted, in
Whioh you will array yourself for tho
marriage supper of the Lamb, Ami
then witii Miriam, who struck the
timbre] of the Red sea, and wllli Deborah, who led the Lord's host Into
the light, and with Hannah, who gave
her Samuel to the Lord, and with
Mary, who rocked Jesus to sleep while
thero were angels singing in the air,

up the battle wounds of the Crimea,

The dinner parties that always
abound in London during the height
of the season, says the Graphic, create and supply a demand for gowns
that really ore things of beauty. One
of the choicest that has been seen this
year consisted of rose-pink satin, and
was embroidered with small Jet beads
down, the skirt, and on the sleeves,
and the front of the bodice. The four
bows on tho front of this losbt were
simply encrusted with black beads,
nnd tho effect was very much softened
by cream laco hanging from each sido
of tho stomacher. Over tho tops of
the sleeves were puffings ot black
A note of novelty was struck by
Lady Florence Hay, who wont to the
altar in on ivory-white gown lined
with pink, which wae still more conspicuous In the train, which suggested
tho eun shining through billowy
masses of snowy clouds. Her bridesmaids were all dressed in pale fawn *
crepon relieved with different colored
bows���pink, blue, mauve and pal��
green, according to the taste and
fancy of the wearers. The straw hats
lu each instance were trimmed to
match theso bows.
Girls are developing a fancy for going ubout in pairs, that is to say,
their dresses nre carefully planned and
thought out, not to match, but to
set one another off to the best advantage. At a smart gathering
this week a tall girl wore a lovely
pale-blue crepon frock, with black
satin ribbons brought ns -bretel.es
down the front and back of the bodice, a bow at tho waist and long
ends almost reaching the bottom of
tho skirt behind, and five smart black
bows from throat to waist in froat.
Her hat was all blue ribbon and.
cream lace, without! a scrap of black '
in it. With, her was a sister dressed
in a lovely pink crepon, which ap- *
peared to bo crossed by bars of chen-
llle. All the ribbons wero pink, and
thero was a very pretty cream lace
yoke. Tho hat was all black and
cream. Another pair of companions
were dressed respectively in a gray
woolen fabric shot with pink, and
gray silk sleeves, and in pale grtfen
shot with lilac. Two young matrons
wero In black and white and black
and orange. The fancy is a pret*y
one, nnd \ory often sisters ha/o a iis-
liko to dressing alibo.
Tho capo of the dday Is, if anything, gotting a great deal -larger
and a great deal moro elaborate.
One just mado for Ascot Is of cream
satin with the most beautiful ecru
guipure laco all over it, evidently
made ou purpose; and below tho lace
a frill of pale green silk, with cream
chllfon over it. The 'ruche round
tho neck Is entirely of pale green
pinked out silk, extremely full, nnd
very deep In the centre of tho back,
of tho neak.
Gradually hats are losing their peculiarities and settling down Into
quietness. Ono of the most delightfully simple creations of the season Is,
of course, cream-chip trimmed with a
tulle ruche, of which tho top rows or
layers nro very pale pink, tho centre ones on equally pale green, and
tbe lower ones white. Tho flowers

Kven yet some cannot be satisfied
as to whether wheat ever turns to
chess or cheat. Chess is a weil-
kuuwu and distinct grass, and where
sown reproduces itself perfectly.
Wheat, when bo isolated that tliere
can bo no error made, always produces wheat, and nothing else.
An Kusteru farmer puts clover hay
ia his mow, alternating ��lt witl* a
Layer of oat straw. The latter thus
has tho flavor uf tlie hay' imparted
to it, and while it, uf course, con-
talus no mure nutriment than formerly, It smells aud tastes better, aud
animala fed upon it eat it all 'up1
A large crop uf potatoes will always* pay a profit, whilo a small or
medium crop win often bo grown at
a loss. Tins lo**,.-. will bo liable to
occur with small crops this year, uw-
ing tu tho high price uf seed. If yuu
have ia a siuaPur field than usual, we
suggest that au earnest effort be
made to_ get as large a product frum
It as from doable the area last year.
Something can lie dutie with that
pour farm if you will give your mind
to the problem. There should be no
abandoned or waste farms uear our
centres of population. It can be
turned over tu sheep, to an orchard
or to timber. .Sumethlug will grow
there of value, and you must find out
just what it is. Perhaps some one
variety of apples will make for you
a fortune.
li a farmer keeps money invested
iu a well-kept flock of muttuu bred
sheep hu is catering to the demands
uf a gradually growing tendency on
tlie part uf the American peuple to
tho euusuinptiuu of guod mutton. The
economy uf tho farm is hardly complete without such a flock.
Sheep ticks often procure a lodgment In barns and sheds and live fur
���several weeks. This fact makes the
matter oi complete extermination'
very difficult; however, if tlio wool is
of good length) the ticks seldom get
off the sheep; but the sheep tick Is
avery hardy little animal.
Careful selection, with improved
methods of feeding* is alone responsible for tho wonderful development of
good qualities as shown ia the' Southdown sheep of to-day. It lias been
brought up to its present state of
perfection and symmetry t
without tlie intervention of
with any other breed.
When stock breeding was declared
unprofitable   the   common   stock
- ��� ���- * '���'��� ���"-' selec-
-, -, brought
out, and the science uf breeding which
produced such marvellous improvement has developed the many valuable breeds of Knglish mutton sheep.
Our most learned, skillful and successful breeders aro the most eager
to learn nud apply all the available
experieuce of others to their own
methods. The science is yet iu its infancy, and is an applicable to sheep
as horses, eattlo or hogs. Breeders
Uo not presume to know it all, us they
formerly did, thinking there was no
room for progress or improvement.
Ko question but that the prospects
for mutton sheep aro going to improve. The unparalleled sacrifice of
breeding stock on the largo markets
its likely to react, owing to the decrease m the number of sheep beiug
bred and the smaller number Which
will gu un tho markets In the future.
Mutton sheep aud liberal feeding are
the two main factors tu be employed
to tho most profit iu the sheep farm-.
ing of the present. The sheep must
bo ui mutton descent, so that they
will givo the greatest gain in flesh
for the food cousumed. Tho ram, at]
least, must be of tlie right kind and
pure bred.
Early maturing sheep, which will
make rapid progress and be ready for
market any time within a year, ure
must likely to give tho best returns,
That lamb can nut but bo a profit
producer Which will weigh, when liberally fed, 15U pounds when a year
old, but he must have a strung framed, round ribbed, full quartered sire
of 120U pounds' weight.
Ewes shuuld get bran or oats dally,
that the lambs may come well nourished. The lambs should have bran,
oven while gotting milk from their
dams. After weaning, givo them
oats, clover or mpe, and other grains.
Hoots and ullage will cheapen the
cost and aje excellent; but there must
bo libernl feeding frum the birth to
tho block. Most sheep raisers do'aot
rcallzo this as tbey should.
The demands of tho market are for
early matured sheep- as well as for
the younger steers aud hogs. Fortunately this is in lino with tho grower*;*)
best Interests, for tho earlier the
sheep are matured the (ewer chances
will they have to cat their beads off.
A ewo which raises two lambs and a
goud wool clip should more thaa pay
lier way. i,
A good dip for sheep tuny be made
by steeping four pounds of tobacco
Stems la 20 gallons of water, nt boiling heat; to this add, by ���stirring, one
pound or flour of sulphur. Dip witli the
liquid at about 120 degrees, meanwhile stirring tbe mixture. Dip ohl
sheep Just after shearing, ami again
Id th etall.
Oae advantage in sheep growing is
that they bring iu money from April
to August, often a season during
which many farmers have nothing to
turn into money for current expenses.
It is not a good plan to pasture
sheep in the same lot with horses,
cows nor hogs. These large animals
are apt to disquiet tho sheep and interfere with their steady grazing.
Sheep havo their ups and downs
much as do other kinds of livestock,
but ou the wholo they serve as a
safety valve to the live stock farmer.
Not often do all kinds of live stock
fall flat at once. That phase of the
Hheep Industry which no wmost    ap
peals to tiie pocketliook  lies  iu the
direction uf meat production.
The Jersey cow probably owes her
docility tu tho fact that in the island
whence she came to us she has   been
under the care ami training    of    the

When plants are lifted which are to

aad blossoms.     In a box about five
inches deep place them in dry dirt;

inches more when placing they out In

Plants may be kept from blossoming for many days, after they    are
budded, by placing them in    a    cool

On tlie 17th ol July. 1851, a tmgedy
o! no little Interest occurred in one
ol tlio residences of the Colonunde, Lafayette Place.
Mr. Hasbrouck, a well known and
highly respected citizen, was attacked
In his room by an unknown assailant,
and shot dead before assistance could
reach him. His murderer escaped,
and the problem ottered to the police
was how to identity this person, who,
by some happy chance, or by the exercise of most remarkable forethought,
had left no traces behind him. or any
clew by which he could be followed.
The affair was given to a young
man, named Ebenezer Gryce, to Investigate, and the story, as he tells it,
is this:
When, eome time after midnight, I
reached Lafayette Pluce, 1 found the
block lighted from end to end. Groups
(if excited men and women peered
from the open doorways, and mingled
their shadows with those of the huge
lilllars which adorn tho front ot this
picturesque block of dwellings.
Tlio house In which the crime had
been committed wus near tlio centre
ot tlie row, and loug before 1 reached
it 1 had learned from mure than one
sourco that tho alarm was first given
to the street by a woman's shriek,
and, second, by the shouts of an old
man-servant who hail appeared. In a
half-dressed condition, at the window
of Mr. Uasbrouck's room, crying,
"Murder I murder I"
But when I hnd crossed the threshold, 1 was astonished at the paucity
ot thc facts to be gleaned from the
inmates themselves. The old servitor,
who was the first to talk, had only
this account of the crime to give:
The family, which consisted of Mr.
Hasbrouck, his wife and three servants, had retired for the night at
the usual hour, and under tlie usual
auspices. At 11 o'clock the lights
were all extinguished, and the whole
household asleep, with the possible
exception of Mr. Hasbrouck himself,
who, being a man of large business
responsibilities, was frequently troubled with insomnia.
Suddenly Mrs. Hasbrouck woke with
a start. Had she dreamed the words
that were ringing iu her ears, or had
they been actually uttered iu her
hearing'/ They were short, sharp
words, full ot terror and menace, and
sho had nearly satisfied herself that
she had Imagined them when there
came, from somewhere near the door,
a sound she neither understood nor
could Interpret, hut which filled her
with Inexplicable terror, and made
her afraid to breathe, or even to
stretch forth her hand toward her
husband, who, she supposed, wus
sleeping by her side. At length, another strange sound, which she wus
sure was not due to her imagination,
drove her to make- an. attempt to
rouse him, when Bhe. was horrified to
lind that ehe was alone iu her bed,
and her husbund nowhere within
Filled now with something more than
nervous apprehension, she flung herself to the floor and tried to penetrate, with frenzied glances, the
surrounding darkness. But the blinds
und shatters both having been carefully closed by Mr. Hasbrouck before
retiring, she found this impossible,
and she was about ta sink in terror
to the floor, when she heard a low
gasp on the other side ol the room,
followed by the suppressed cry:
" God I What have I done I"
Tho voice was a strange one, but,
beforo the fear aroused by this fact
could culminate ia a shriek of dismay,
Mm caught the sound of retreating
footsteps, and, eagerly listening,
she tieard them descend tlie stairs
aud depart by the front door.
Had she known what had occurred
���had there been uo doubt iu her
mind as to what lay in the darkness
on tlie other side of the room���it is
likely that, at the noise caused by
the closing front door, she would
liavo made at once for the balcony
that opened from the window before
which she was standing, aud taken
one look at the flying figure below.
But her uncertainty as to what lay
hidden from her by the darkness
chained her feet to the floor, and
there is no knowing when she would
have moved It a carriage had not at
that moment foassed down Astor
place, bringing with It a sense of
companionship which broke the spell
that held her, and gave her strength
to light tlie gus, which was iu ready
reach ot her hand.
As the sudden blaze illuminated the
room, revealing iu a burst the old
familiar walls and well kuowu pieces
of furniture, she felt for a 'moment as
ii released from some heavy nightmare, and restored to the common
experiences ot life. But iu another
instnnt her former dread returned,
and sho found herself quaking at the
prospect ot passing around tho foot
of tlio bed iuto that part ,ot tlie room
which was as yet hidden from her
But the Idesporatlon which comes
with great crises finally drove her
from her retreat, and, creeping slowly forward, she cast ouo glance at
the door before her, when she found
her worst tears realized by the sight
ol tho dead body ot hor husband lying
prone before tho open doorway, with
a bullctholo In Ills forehead.
Her first Impulse was to shriek, but
by a powerful exorcise of will sho
checked herself, and, ringing frantically for the servants, who. slopt on
the top floor of the house, flew to
tlie nearest window and endca-rorcd
to open it. But the shutters had
been bolted so securely by Mr. Hasbrouck, in his endeavor to shut out
light and sound, that by the time
she had succeeded in unfastening
them, all trace ol the flying murderer
had vanished from the Btreet.
Sick with grief and terror, she
stepped back into the room, just as
the three frightened servants descended the stairs. As they appeared in the open doorway, she
pointed at her husband's inanimate
form, and t';en, as is suddenly real
izing in its full force the calamity
which had befallen her, she threw up
her arms and sank forward to the
floor in a dead faint.
The two women rushed to her assistance, but the old butler, bounding
over the bed, sprang to the window
and shrieked his alarm to the Btreet.
In the Interim that followed Mrs.
Hasbrouck was revived, and the master's body laid decently on the bed;
but no pursuit was made nor any enquiries Btarted likely to assist me in
establishing the identity of the assailant.
. Indeed, every one, both in the
house and out, seemed dazed by the
unexpected catastrophe, and as no
one had any suspicion to offer ns to
the probable murderer'I hud a difficult task before me.
1 began in the usual way by Inspecting the Bcono ol the murder. I
found nothing in tlie room, or In the
condition of tlie body Itself, which
added an iota to the knowledge already obtained. That Mr. Hasbrouck had been In bed, that he had
risen upon hearing a nolso, and that
he had beon shot before reaching tlie
door, were self-evident facts. But
there was nothing to guide mo further. Tho very simplicity of the
circumstances caused a dearth of
clues, which made the dilliculty of
procedure as great as any; I ever encountered.
My search through the hall and
down the stair elicited nothing, and
nn investigation of the bolts and bars
by which the house was secured assured me that the assassin hnd
either entered by the front door or
had already been secreted in the
house when It was locked up for tne
" I shall have to trouble Mrs. Hap-
brouck for a Bhort Interview,'* I
hereupon announced to the trembling
old servitor, who had followed me
like a dog about the house.
He made no demur, and In a lew
minutes I was ushered Into the presence of the newly made widow, who
sat qiflte alone in a large chamber in
tho rei.r. As I crossed the threshold
she looked up, and I encountered a
good, plain face, without the shadow
of guile in it.
" Madame," said I, " I have not como
to disturb you. I will ask two or
three questions only; and then leave
you to your grief. .1 am told that
some words came from the assassin
before he delivered his fatal shot.
Bid you hear these distinctly enough
to tell me what they were ?"
*' I was sound asleep," she said, and
dreamed, as I thought, that a fierce,
strange voice cried somewhere to some
oue, ' Ah I you did not expect me I'
But I dare not say that these words
were really uttered to my husband,
for he was not the man to call forth
hate, and only a man in the extremity
of passion could address such an exclamation in' such a tone as rings In
my memory in connection with the
fatal shot which woke me."
"But that shot was not the work
ot a friend," I argued. "If, as these
words seem to prove, the assassin
had some other motive than gain in
his assault, then your husband had
an enemy, though you never suspected it."
" Impossible 1" was her steady reply,
uttered In the most convincing tone.
" The man who shot him was a common burglar, and, frightened at having been betrayed into murder, fled
without looking for booty. I am sure
I heard him cry out, in terror and
remorse, ' God I What have I done ?' "
*' Was that before you left the side
of the bedV"
" Yes; I did not move from my
place till I heard the front door
close. I was paralyzed iiy my fear
and dread."
" Are you In tho habit of trusting
to the security of a latch lock only
In the fastening ot your front door
at night ? I am told that the big key
was not la the lock, and that the
bolt at the bottom of the door was
not drawn."
"The bolt at the bottom ot the door
Is never drawn. Mr. Hasbrouck was
so good a man he uever mistrusted
anyone. That Is why the big lock was
not lasteued. The key, not working
well, he took It some days ago to the
locksmith, and wheu the latter failed
to return it, he laughed aud said he
thought no oue would ever think of
meddling with his front door."
" Is there more thaa oue night key
to your house?'  I now asked.
She shook her head.
" And wheu did Mr. Hasbrouck last
use his ?"
"To-night, when he came home
fTom prayer meeting," she answered,
and burst into tears.
Her grief was so real and her loss
so recent that I hesitated to afflict
her by further questions. So, returning to the scene of the tragedy, I
stepped out upon the balcony which
ran lu front. Soft voices Instantly
Btruck mv ears. Tlie neighbors ou
either side were grouped in front ot
their own windows, and were exchanging the remarks natural 'under
the circumstances. I paused, as in
duty bound, and listened. But I
heard nothing worth recording, nnd
would hnvo instantly re-entered the
house [f I had not beon Impressed by
tho appearance of a very graceful woman, wlio stood ut my right. She
was clinging to her husband, who was
gazing at ono of the pillars bofore
him lu a strange, fixed way, which
astonished me, till he attempted to
movo, aud then I saw that he was
blind. Instantly I remembered that
there lived in this row a blind doctor, equally celebrated for his skill
and for his uncommon personal attractions, ond greatly Interested,
not only In his affliction;'but In the
sympathy' evinced for him by his
young and affectionate wife, I stood
still till I heard her say, in the soft
and appealing tones qt love:
" Come in, ������ Constant j you have
heavy duties for to-morrow, and you
should get a few hours' rest if possible.!'
He came from the shadow ot: the
pillar, and for oue lnltiitto I saw his
face wtth the lamplight shining full
upou it. It was as regular of feature aa a sculptured Adonis, and it
was as white.
" Bleep!' he repeated, In the measured tones of deep, but suppressed
feeling. " Sleep f with murder ou
the other side ot the waul" Aad
he stretched out his arms la a dazed
way that Insensibly accentuated the
horror I myself felt ot the crime whleh
had so lately taken place iu the room
behind me.
She, noting the movement, took one
of the groping hands iu her owu and
drew him gently toward her.
"This way,*' she urged; and, guiding liim into tho house, she closed
the window and drew down the
shades, making the street seem darker by the loss of her exquisite presence.
Tills mny seem a digression, but I
was at tlie time a young man of 30,
and much under tho dominion of woman's beauty. I was, therefore,
slow la leavlug tlie balcony, and persistent In my wisli to learn something
of this remarkable couple before leaving Mr. Uasbrouck's houso.
The story told me was very simple.
Dr. Zabriskie hud not heen born
blind, but had become so after a grievous illness, which had stricken him
down soon after ho had received his
diploma. Instead of succumbing to nn
affliction which would have daunted
most men. he expressed liU Intention
of practising his profusion, and soon
bocame so successful In it that he
founn no dlf lenity In establishing himself In one of the best paying quarters of the city. Indeed, hla intuition seemed to have developed la a
remarkable degree after liis loss of
sight, and he seldom, if ever, made a
mistake In diagnosis. Considering
tills fact, anil the personal attractions which gave him distinction, It
wa.s no wonder that lie i-oou became
a popular physician, whose presenco
was a benefaction, and whose word
a law-.
He had been engaged 'to he married
at the time of hla illness, aud, when
he learned what was likely to be its
results, had offered tn release the
young lady from all obligation to him.
But she would not be released, and
they were married. Thi* had taken
place some five years previous to Mr.
Ilasbroueks death, three ol which
had beeu spent by them in Latayette
So much tor the beautiful woman
next door.
There was absolutely no clue to the
assailant of Mr. Hasbrouck. I naturally looked forward to the inquest fnr
some evidence upon which to work.
But there seemed to be uo underlying
facts to this tragedy. The most careful study into the habits and conduct
of the deceased brought nothing to
light save hia general beneficence and
rectitude, nor was tliere iu his history
or In that of his wife any secret or
hidden obligation calculated to provoke any such act of revenge as murder. Mrs. Hasbrouck's surmise that
the Intruder was simply a burglar,
and that she had rather liuaglaed
than beard the words that pointed to
the shooting as a deed of vengeance,
soon gained general credence. But,
though the police worked long and
arduously in this new direction, their
efforts were without fruit, and the
case bade fair to remain un uusolv-
able mystery.
But the deeper the mystery the
more persistently does my mind cling
to it, and some five months after the
matter had been relegated to oblivion
I found myself starting suddenly from
Bleep with these words ringing in my
ears :
"Who uttered the scream that gave
the first alarm of Mr. Hasbrouck's
violent death ?"
I was In such a state ot excitement
that the perspiration stood out on my
forehead. Mre. Hasbrouck's Btory of
the occurrence returned to me, and I
remembered as distinctly as If Ehe
were then speaking that she had expressly stated that she did uot
scream when confronted by tlie sight
of her husband's dead body. But some
ono had screamed and that very loudly. Who was It, then? One ot the
maids, startled by the sudden summons from below, or some one else-
some involuntary witness of the
crime, whose testimony had been suppressed at tlie Inquest by fear or Influence ?
The possibility of having come upon
a clue, even at this late day, so tired
my ambition that I took the first opportunity ol revisiting Lafayette
Place, Choosing such persons as 1
thought most open to my questions, 1
learned that there were mauy who
could testify to having heard a woman's shrill scream ou that memorable night just prior to tlie alarm
given by old Cyrus, but no one who
could tell from whose lips it hud come.
One fact, however, was immediately
settled. It had not been tlie result of
the servant women's fears. Both ot
tlie girla were positive that they had
uttered no sound, nor had they themselves heard any, till Cyrus rushed to
the window with his wild cries. As
the scream, by whomsoever given,
was uttered before they descended
the stairs, 1 was convinced by these
assurances that it had Issued from
one of the front windows, and not
from the rear ot the house, where
their own rooms lay. Could It be that
It had sprung trom the adjoining
dwelling, and that���. My thoughts
weut no further, but I mado up my
in 1 ml to visit the doctor's house ut
It took somo couruge to do this,
for tho doctor's wife had attended
the inquest, and her beauty, seen
In broad day-light, had worn such
un aspect of mingled sweetness and
dignity that I hesitated to encounter It under nny circumstances likely
to disturb Its pure serenity. But a
clew, once grasped, cannot bo lightly sot aside by a truo detective, und
it would have taken moro than a woman's frown to stop me nt this point.
So I rang Dr. Zabriskie's bell.
I nm 7U years old now, and am no
longer dnuntQd by tho charms of a
beautiful woman, but I confess that
wheu I found myself in the fine reception parlor on the first floor I experienced no little trepidation at t)ie
prospect of the interview which
awaited me.
But us soon as the fine, commanding form of tho doctor's wife crossed
the threshold, I recovered my senses
aud surveyed her with as direct  ��� u
gaze as my position allowed. For i
her aspect bespoke a degree of emotion that astonished me. and even before I spoke I perceived her to be
trembling, though sho was a woman
of no little natural dignity and self-
" I seem to know your face,*' 6he
said, advancing   courteously toward
me, " but your name" and   here
she glaocea at the card she held in
her hand. " ia totally unfamiliar to
" I think you saw me some 18
moaths ago." said I. " I am the
detective who gave testimony at
the inquest which was held over
the remains of Mr. Hasbrouck."
I had not meant to startle her, but
at this Introduction of myself I saw
her naturally pale cheek turn paler,
and her fine blue eyes, which had
been fixed curiously upon me, gradually sink to the floor.
"Great heaven!" thought I, "what
is this I have stumbled upon!"
" I do not understand what business you can have with me," Bhe
presently remarked, with a show of
geatle Indifference that did not lu
tlie least deceive me.
,,'rJi ('�� not ''Older,' I fully rejoined.
The crime which took place next
door Is almost forgotten bv tho community, and even it It were not lam
sure you would (Ind it difficult to conjecture the nature of the question I
havo to put to you."
" I am surprised," sho began, rising In her Involuntary emotlou, and
thereby compelling me to rise nlso.
'How can you havo any question to
nsk mo ou the subject ? Yet If you
have," she continued, with a rapid
change ot mnnner that touched mv
heart in spite of myself, " I shall, of
course, do my best to answer you."
There are women whose sweetest
tones and most charming smiles only
serve to awaken distrust In men of
my calling, lut Mrs. Zabrlakle was
not of this number. Her face was
beautiful, but it was. nlso candid in
its expression, and beneath the agitation which palpably disturbed her I
was sure there lurked uothiag either
wicked or false. Yet I held fast hy
the clew which I had grasped, as it
were, in the dark, and without knowing whither I was tending, much less
whither I was leading her, I proceeded to say:
" The question whleh I presume to
put to you aa the next-door neighbor of Mr. Hasbrouck ia this: Who
was the woman who screamed out
so loudly that the whole neighborhood
heard her on the night ot that gentleman's assassination ?"
The gasp she gave answered my
questlou iu a way she little realized,
and, struck as I was bv the impalpable llaks that had led me to the
threshold of this hitherto unsolvable
mystery, I was about tn press my
advantage and ask another question,
when she quickly started forward and
laid her hand ou my lips.
Astonished, I looked nt her inquiringly, but her head was turned aside,
and her eyes, fixed upon tiie door,
showed tlie greatest anxiety. Instantly I realized what slie feared.
Her husband was entering the house,
aud she "dreaded lest hia ear should
catch a word of our conversation.
Not knowing what was in her mind,
aad unable to realize the Importance
of the moment to her, I yet listened
to the advance of her blind husband
with aa almost painful Interest.
Would he enter the room where we
were, or would he pass Immediately
to hla oflice in the rear ? She seemed to wonder, too, and almoat Tield
her breath as he neared the door,
paused and stood In the, open floor-
way, with his ��ar turned towarda us.
Aa for myself, I remained perfectly
still, gazing at his face In mingled
surprise and apprehension. For, beside its beauty, which was ot a marked order, as I have already observed,
It had a touching expression, which
irresistibly aroused both! pity and interest in tho spectator. Thia may
have been the result of his affliction
or it may have sprung Irom some
deeper cause, but whatever Ita source,
this look In his face produced a strong
impression upou me, and interested
me at once in hia personality. Would
he enter ? Or would he pnss on ? Her
look of silent appeal showed me In
which direction her wishes lay, hut
whilo I answered her gluuce by complete silence, I waa conscious in some
indistinct way that the bualuess T
had undertaken would be furthered by
his entrance.
The blind have been often said to
possess a sixth sense lu place of tlie
one they have lost. Though I am sure
we made no noise, I soou perceived
that he was aware of our presence.
Stepping hastily forward, he said in
the high and vibrating toue of restrained passion:
" Helen, are you here ?"
For a moment I thought she did
not mean to answer, but knowing
doubtless from experience the Impossibility of deceiving hini, she answered with cheerful assent, dropping her hand as sho did ao from beforo her lips.
He heard the slight rustle which
accompanied the movement, and a
look 1 fouud It hard to comprehend
flushed over his features, altering his
expression so completely that he
seemed another man.
" You huve some oue with you," he
declared, advancing unother step, but
with none ol the uncertainty which
usually accompanies tho movements
ot the blind, "Some dear Irleud,"
ho went on, with an almost sarcastic emphasis and a forced smile that
had little gayety lu It,
The agitated and distressed blush
which answered him could have but
ono Interpretation, He suspected
that her hand had been clasped In
mine, and sho perceived his thought
and knew that 1 perceived it also.
Drawing herself up she moved toward li Im. saying lu a sweet, womanly tone that to me spoke volumes :
" It Is no friend, Constant, not even
an acquaintance. Tho person whom
I uow present to you is au agent
from the police. He ia here upon a
trivial errand, whicli will soon bo finished,, when I will Join you in your
I knew she wa.s but taking a choice
between two evils; that slio would
havo saved her husband tho knowledge of a detective's presence In
the house It her self-respect would
have allowed it, but, neither she  nor I
unticipated tho effect which this presentation produced upou him.
*' A police officer," he repeated,
staring with hia sightless eyea, as if,
ia his eagerness to see, he half hoped
his lost sense would return. " He
can have no trivial erraad here; he
has been aent by God himself to"���
" Let me speak tor you," hastily interposed his wife, springing to his
side, and clasping his arm with a fervor thut wus equully expressive ot
appeal and command. Then turning
to me she explaiued: Since Mr. Hus-
brouck'a unuccountable death my
husbuud haa beeu laboriug under un
hulluclnution, which I have only to
mention for you to recognize its
perfect absurdity. He thinks���oh, do
not look like that, Constant; you
know it's ua hallucination which must
vanish the moment we drag it iuto
broad daylight���that he���he, the
best man iu the world���was himself
the assailant ot Mr. Hasbrouck."
Good God!
" I Bay nothing of the lmposslbillt?
ot this being so," she went on In a
fever of expostulation. " He is blind,
and could not have delivered such a.
shot even If he had desired to; besides, he had no weapon. But tho
inconsistency of the thing speaks for
itself, aud should assure hitn that hla
mind is unbalanced, and that he is
merely Buffering Irom a shock that
was greater than we realized. He la
a physician, and has had many such
instances iu his owu practice. Why,
he was very much attached to Mr.
Hasbrouck 1 They were the best of
friends, und, though ho insists tliut
ho killed him, he cannot give uny
reason for the deed."
At these words tho doctor's face
grew stern, uud he spoke like nn
automaton repeating some fearful

Up to the spring of 18SJ-A Mr. Burtou

determined to give them a trial, and
without consulting his physician he
began their use. He only used one
box, and, not feeling better, he discontinued the use of the pills. This
was where he now admits he made a
serious mistake, as he not only fell
buck to his former weakness, but became worse than before. Ho could
now do no work of any kind, and the '

with astonishing results. During his
illness he had fallen in weight to 1*35

Tuesday, July 23, 1895,
Remedial legislation is abandoned for
the present. It is to lie hoped that the
passions which have been excited will
new be allayed and that the subject
will be treated apart from politics in
the broad spirit of true statesmanship.
That the question should be wisely
settled, and according to the best Inter
ests of the people is of vastly more importance than the fate of either the
Conservative or Liberal party.
With the change of government in
England home rule and church disestablishment will be shelved for a time, yet
nothing is more certain than that both
of these reforms will ultimately triumph
And the time is not far distaut when
the House nf Lords will cease tu be an
hereditary body.
The Attorney-General has returned
from his eastern trip and we trust he
will find time to consider the appointment of a stipendiary magistrate, and a
coroner for thi* portion of the province.
Tbey are both badly needed and we
regret to see an indifference to our
Seeds which is creating a feeling of
hostility which will not easily be allayed.
A meeting of the County Court at Co-
moi once in a few months for a day's
session is little more than a farce.
Suits if commenced have to be instituted at Nanaimo, anil small claims
may as well be thrown In the lire as
sent down to some attorney to be eaten up in expense. The Small Debts
Act was supposed to have been created
for the benefit of the country and yet
the Victoria authorites assume tn be
greater than the people and their legislature, and shut us out from ils benefits by neglecting to make appointments.
They want us to understand we sup
pole, that they will make them when
Ihey get ready or not at all. If that is
what they mean it is evident thai tliey
are unfit for their position. A government where the wishes of the people
are not respected is Cresarism, and it is
aa anomaly in a civilized country to
find laws ��� not local option ��� not put
intc operation in broad sections while
actively enforced in others.
It was about 5 a.m. when we got ashore
at Stockton, so there was not much noise
in the "I'ittsburg of the West". However we succeeded in finding a place
where tliey dished out eatables to whomsoever will at so much a dish. One of
mine was .milk. Vic. made a vigorous
protest against this, saving 1 was old
enough to do without milk nnd live on
grass. I insisted 1 was getting to br a
big boy and could eat and drink what I
liked as other Americans do. Vic. order
ed coffee "same as other men do", he
said; and alter a good deal of argument
we finished, paid our little bills and went
out tn look for the railway station. We
found it and upon its front a large notice
which proclaimed tothe travelling public
that the distance to Sacramento was 40
miles, also ihe lirst train left Stockton at
S. 15. a.m. "A Inn-,' wan" said Vic looking
at lhe clock which was 6 o'clock 111 the ! Q
minute; so we sat down in thc shade on ��**Hlll*inK
a pile of sacks. Vic chewed wheat aiul
studied the railway map, while I went to
sleep the minute I sat down. I woke
pretty often ,and at last we heard the
huge iron horse whistling down the track.
Going over to the depot wc saw a ponder
cms Hibernian arrayed in blue cloth and
brass buttons pacing up and down the
platform "This wont do, come on up the
track apiece'' 1 thought. Accordingly we
went up aliout 150 yds and gut behind a
fence and awaited the train and developments.   The train wasn't long in coming.
As the bell began to ring and ihc engine to bark, we walked down to meet it
so as to hitch on when she went by. We
hitched on all right to the front end of
the baggage car and were soon going at
the rate of 30 miles an hour. Nothing
worthy of note happened till about the
fourth stop. Then the brakie came up
and said, "Well boys, take a sneak out nf
here". Turning to Vic 1 said "Can't be
helped, come on, jump the tail end".
"Tail end got," lie replied, and it did with
both of us on it. I expected every minute to see tin* "brnuie1' or conductor come
out and c-.ll for fare, but 110 official came
Uv considerable engineering we rode her
rignt into Sacramento. Although she
made five stops no one ever came out on
the tail end; good reason why; it was too
dusty. Yes, California dust was flying
nrettv thick. "Say! is this Sacramento?1'
I enquired of *'ic. "Guess il is" lie re-
plied; and coming over to my side, lie
exclaimed, "Hey, look here!" and Vic.
stared witli bulging eyes and open mouth
at the California capitol; so did 1. li
was a fine sight surrounded with its spacious grounds carpetted 111 green and ils
lofty dome glistening in the sun. As we
were admiring it the "brakie" came out
to adjust thc bell cord.
"Hello" he said, "are you  wid us yet"?
"Sure thing; we are going through," was
the answer returned.
Then we noticed lhat the train was
slowing down, and realising lhat to ride
into the depot meant arrest we jumped al
lhe risk of our necks. 1 fell over my feet
in a most disgraceful manner but Vic stood
up pretty well. Wc brushed each other
off and washed in a watering trough in
front ofa saloon hard by.

matter of some delicacy and difficulty

the taint derived from sonic one a few

sity is in charge nf ihe experiments being
conducted in Canada. It is understood
that two people of Union are now undergoing the lymph treatment. One is ��
man who appears to have a stiaw across
his throat; is afflicted with bad temper
and worse manners, lie growls and
rushes. There is no trouble in getting
plenty of lymph for such a patient, as lie
is a type of a large class from which most
communities suffer. The other is a
young gentleman who imagines that
eveiy young lady who looks at him is
dead in love with him. He is supposed
tn be vain, but it is a mental idei syn-
cracy which only the lymph treaim-nt
will cure. Both these peisons arc only
to be pitied not blamed. And it is to be
hoped that a few months of l\ mph diet
will effect a salutary change. Reports of
their condition are regularly sent to the
I'rofcssor, but cannot be obtained at present for publication, for obvious reasons.
We hope, however, to be able to give
full particulars after the 1, mph has done

John Roberts thrust his lieu under
his spectacle how and looked out Into
the street where the sunshine lay hot
and jiule and a lazy wind pluyed with
the dust" 'und meu hnd women run
always up uud down breathlessly.
John Roberts' back was tired und
his eyes smarted.
" Iim going, to '��� tako u vacation
soou',".;he suid'to tho note, clerk, who
sat two.lnk bottles awuy. " This heat
and .worry' is growing oppressive. I
shall take iny luiully down to my old
home In Yuri; State, Fnnnlo is ailing
and needs a rest, und the children ure
crazy -to "up,, iislilng."
The bill clerk, "whose-month was lull
ol figures, stalled vaguely, his eyes
never-leaving-.his ledger. John Rob-
erts.gluiieed about the big droning
room, rimmed witli latticed money
counters, where Ross & Wickershuui,
private bunkers, made money earn
money. . Then lie hooked his toes
around the legs'of his stool and went
back to work.
John Roberts wus a little shiny
man���shiny ull the way from the
glistening top of liis head downward
OVOR his smooth-worn frock coat and
tro.users to the tip of his shoes, whero
au immaculate polish often concealed
thc ravages of time and pavements.
His shoulders drooped heavily as if
the . responsibility of, life had onee
weighed tou criisiiingiy upon hiin, and
then, being no longer able to maintain
a resting place', tney had slipped off,
leaving' 'ills luce* perennially, eneerful.
It is a way the world has ol tempering. Its burden to the weakling.
Everyone liked John Roberts-Hhe
was always accommodating���too accommodating, his wife thought; and
she ought tu have known better than
anyone else. Somo of the Irreverent
messenger boys called him "Little
Jolinhy'^liind his back, but It was
rutlier a term oi regard thau of contempt.
Joiiii'H'cibcrts received $00 a month
for knowing how much- other banks
owed Ross & Wlckershuiu aud how
much they owed other banks. John
Roberts, abutted by Mrs. Roberts, had
iniide it piiy all expenses.
In all of the eight years that John
Roberts had worked iu the bank lie
had never had a vacation. There had
always been' something .to prevent
it,-although'he had Intended to take
it and lutu talked about rt cheerfully
mouth after month during all the
long,.hot summers. He had hoped
that the Ilrm would offer to send him
away to tha country, but whenever
the_tliue came to speak ol it the
promotion',' which had always hung
before him like a will-o'-the-wlsp,
would suddenly seem within his grasp
���Sir. Wickersham was a shrewd
manager���and he'd forbear to bother
the firm with his request.
Rut the promotion invariably faded
away with the coming of cold weather.
"Yes, I'm going to have my vacation soon." John Roberjs said to his
wife, hopefully. "I'm tired out and
iny cough is worso than usual. We'll
all go down to father's and spend a
month. I think I can get passes
from old Erowulcuf���cousin George's
wife's brother, you know."
Mrs.j.Roberts smiled and said nothing, .she wns a little woman and
she hadn't always been failed.
On the first of June John Roberts
spoke to the firm aliout a rest.
"Why, yes, Roberts," said Mr.
Wlckershniii,. in his copious way,
rubbing his hands together, "you
should have a vacation. You'vo been
doing good work, Roberts, good work.
Yes; yes, take    your   vacation .
���Sny, we're thinking about making a
few little changes la tlio office���but
we'll talk of that later. It'a hard
times, you know���nobody making nny
Mr. Wickersham looked the picture
of woo and John Roberts' heart beat
sympathetically. Ho forgot that
tliere always had been hard times In
the office since he came. If there hadn't been of course his salary would
have been raised long ago.
"I'm going on my vacation," said
John Roberts, gleefully, to the note
clerk, and then he worked harder thau
ever���ho wanted to show the firm how
lie nppreclnted their kindness. After
that he talked a great doal'about "father's place in York .State," and when
no one else would listen he'd talk witli
tlio. messenger boys.
���'inio brought measles to John Roberts' baby, iuul the dato of the vacation was set for July. It was hot,
weary weather and tho work dragged
In the office. Dark lines found their
way under John Roberts' eyes and the
bluo veins showed in his temples.
"I wish you could go along witli us,"
said he to the bill clerk In llie hearty,
well-wishing way that hud kept him
always doing favors.
In July thero was a great rush ot
business In the ollice���so Ur. Wickersham said���and times were harder
than ever, and Rimby, wlio was Immediately In charge of John Roberts'
work, had gone away.
"I don't know how I could spare
you," said Mr. Wlckcrshaiu. "You fid
a very largo placo in tho office."
John Roberts felt a lump of gratification choke Up his throat, and heing
naturally accommodating ho went
hackita his desk and began to think
.how nice the old placo would look
,\in August.'
July was hot and breathless and
John 'Roberts noticed that he sometimes-felt dizzy when ho went out
into tlio sunlight. And his wifo was
"That vacation will do us all a
worlo* of good," he said, light-heartedly, and after that ho talked so
much about it that every clerk
within range was bored. One of the
office boys called him "Yacat����s" and
the others adopted the nume instantly.
For some reason August dragged
itself out with John Roberts still
at his desk. He was still working
hard to show his appreciation to the
firm, nnd the vacation wns to be iu
One day���the first In months���John
Roberts wns not at his desk. About
noon the news came that he had been
prostrated by the heat, and the next
morning the note clerk snid: ".Sudden, wasn't It? Got his vacation at
last, poor fellow. Wonder what his
family will clo I"
Then they all went back to work.
A clerk more or less, where there
are so ninny men who would be
clerks, Is of very little importance in
the world. Mr. Wickersham, who bad
the reputation of being a shrewd
manager, hired a man in John Roberts' place for $50 a month.

Tlie farmers in Ontario are, owing
to drought, inclined to take a less
hopeful view of the outlook. If we
get a good general rain in tlie next
Jew days the effect on the grain cropB
may not be very serious. In the
Northwest the crops are reported to
be coming on well and the prospects
for business in that part of the country are bright.

Latest tea news from Hankow Is as
follows: The first crop has closed
100,000 hall-chests over last year,
which has been more than absorbed
by the Russians taking 150,000 half-
chests more than - last season. Between two and three million pounds
have been despatched Irom Foochow

- in the United States, Canada, Europe and on passage to Europe the
quantity in sight, according to the
Reerbohiu-Brndstreet estimate, is
168,4-18,000 bushels, ns against 180,-
752,000 a year ago and 180,-J60,000
bushels two years ugo.
The E. M. Thoinnn review of the
crop situation is the latest issued.
Mr. Thoman says: "The total wheat
area ie 33,651,01)0 acres, against 35,-
480,000 harvested last year���or a
decrease of 1,826,000 acres. The condition is 80.2 per cent., forecasting a
totul harvest of 446,000,000 bushels,
ns against 503,000,000 bushels in
1894, or a net decrease of 57,000,-
000 bushels. Apparently over 1,000,-
000 acres of winter wheat .hare been
abandoned or devoted to other crops.
The area Is 23,310,200 acres, against
24,438,942 acres harvested. The
area seeded last fall amounted to
24,884,800 acres.
"Condition of winter- wheat Is 73.2
per cent., against 83.2 per cent, on
May 1, and suggests a harvest not to
exceed 282,000,000 bushels, as compared with 352,000,000 bushels last
year. But under present conditions
of soli nnd cllmnte further damage Is
likely to result."
The current movement of hogs to
market Is liberal, a total of 885,>t>00
having been handled by Western packers during the week, against 815,000
tho preceding week, and 280,000 Inst
year, making a total of 8,385,000
slnco March 1st, against 3,140,000 a
year ngo. The quality of the stock is
generally satisfactory. Prices have
been well sustained, and at the
close nre slightly higher than a week
ago in the general average of prominent markets.
Western receipts or wheat for the
month have been 5,944,574 bushels,
against 6,525,523 last year. Nor do
Atlantic exports reflect Incroasod
hasto to buy abroad, amounting to
four weeks, flour included, to 6,186,-

But there's an old time saying,

That when comes the time of harvest
You will reap as you have sown.
Every brush you give your counter
Is just so much stock in trade;
Every counter you have painted
Is a customer you've made.
Every time your name is printed
Is a dollar laid away.
Every thought you give your business,
Hastens in a better day...
Then never mind the reaping,
If the sowing iias been right,
For the laws of nature govern,
And she'll always treat you white.
Don't you be afraid of business,
Open out and make n show,      ���*-
For tho laws of nature govern,
And you'll reap Just what you sow.

Advertising, like charity, begins at
home. In other words, 11 advertise a
store tirst get your store. There are so
many horrible exa-npies of how not to
keep a store, th it enumeration of the different bad ways is hopeless.
It is useless to advertise outside cif the
store ami imt in-iih*. Tht* fust requisites
in a system of advertising are cleanliness
and order, and general rightness in the
appearance of" ihe s-ore. After lhat
comes courtesy and th ��� quality of the
goods. It is hard to'ell winch of these
is mn-u important. A pleasant, cordial,
attentive, but uot nbtrusiye and obsequious manner, makes and holds trade.
No matter how insignificant the transaction, it doesn't take any longer to be amia
ble than to be crusty. There is such a
thihg as being  too   pleasant��� familiar���

Advertising should be the bulletin of

department of agriculture he says:
The soils of the pruiries will doubtless
lie found suitable for thiserop wiiere tho
Bummers am hot too dry and warm. And
in large sections in all parts whero tho
climatic conditions resemble thoso of Ontario it will doubtless be fouud that rape
will grow readily. This would uieiui
that rape can he successfully ��rro\vu in
all the states bordering on the Dominion
of ('iinada and in several of those that
lie farther to the south. Whether it
would furnish winter pasture in the more
southerly states and whether it would
grow seed its a iwiying crop in these can
be determined only by actual test. The
heat of the sun in such latitudes would
doubtless be fatal to its successful grow tli
in midsummer.
The plaee that should lie assigned to

conditions���the use for which it ingrown,

John Gould, ono of Ohio'B progressive
farmers, tells, in a letter to Country
Gentleman, that for three years ho has
been sowing more and moru ryo among
the corn at the last working. This year
all of the com is sown to ryo, nnd there
will bo uot only some fine fall toed, but
in tlie excessive Ohio fall and spring
rains there will be no washing of the
land or carrying away of fertility. Then
in the spring one lias a field of rye to
seed down to clover and save a year in
the rotation, or, whnt is pretty well up
to clovor, a ryo Bod to turn under for a
succeeding crop.
