Where? Why of course at Leiser's
mammoth store, where everything can
be found and at remarkable tow prices.
This store is but one of Mr. Leisers'
stores, which wherever established take
the lead. One secret of his great success
is that he knows the value of printers
ink. Like all successful, brainy merchants he knows thoroughly the importance of generous persistent advertising,
and he knows too that there must be
good goods, and plenty of them, and
that the prices must be reasonable. He
therefore is enabled to turn over vast
quantities of merchandise, and if his
profiits are small on any particular article, as they undoubtedly are, in the agre-
gate ihey must be large. Being a
wholesale dealer he can defy competition
and is enable to meet the rush with satisfying goods at satisfying prices.

Conformation of Datry Cows.
A prominent dairy authority claims that
the English idtia of & cow ia baaed on the
���utline of the Shorthorn, and hence ia more
or leas of a beef form. Answering this a
correspondent writes aa follows to the
London Live Stock Journal.
There is an increasingly common belief
that an ideal dairy cow ought to be, what
may be termed, wedge shaped, wide behind
and narrow forward. This, of course,
means narrow cheats, and narrow cheats
means weak cattle. Granted, for the sake
of argument, that auoh is the proper conformation of the ideal dairy cow, it may
be well to consider what this leads to. We
all know the story of the ending of tbe
experiment to get a horse to live on nothing. How well it succeeded up to a certain point, and would have heen entirely
successful had the horse lived ; but, as
luck would have it, the horse died when
only one straw stood in the way of complete fluccoca of the experiment.
If we are to breed oattle to be useful, we
must breed them with strong constitutions
and, after all, it is not yet satisfactorily
settled that we must breed oattle with
narrow chests if we are to have high-class
milking sorts. How does the matter atand,
at present T We have the Channel Island
cattle; essentially milk breeds, and we have
the Ayrshirea and Kerriea. With regard
to thB Channel Island cattle, we have in
them oattle whose milking qualifications
have been most carefully attended to by
generations of breeders, Theae breeders,
with their circumscribed boundaries, but
favorable climatic situations, have produced a olasa of amall cowa that give milk of
greater richness thau that of any other
reed. In the Ayrshirea and Kerriea we
have small-sized cattle, small food consumers and yot, comparatively apeaking,
great milkera. While both the Ayrshirea,
and the Kerriea are expected to live on
harder fare, and are subject to greater
climatic hardships, than the Channel Islanders, the experts in dairy cattle judging
are, and have beon, insisting upon having
the Ayrshirea aud Kerry cattle with the
same narrow-cheat development as is found
in the Jersey. All practical cattle -breeders
know where this muat end. Horry tales
are already told * of the constitutional
weakness of one of the breeds, and it is
only a matter of time, and that a very
little |time, when the effects of suoh a
system of breeding will ahow themselves.
Is it necessary to have narrow cheats in
dairy cattle? How doea the matter stand
with Shorthorn oattle���eattlo that, after
all tbat ia said or oan be said for other
breed*, are the dairy oattle of England
Every ono who has had experience of a
atook of dairy Shorthorns csn look back
upon many a wide-cheated, deep-milking
cow. They can quote many a cow as giving
four to five gnllona of milk a day, milking
ateadily month after month for fivo nr six
months, and gradually settling down till
ahe waa dried off after being in milk ten
months. They cau toll of a lean cow after
ten months' milking and a cow full of
flesh and substance at next calving time,
ao full of flesh at* to be mistaken by many
for one of the beof-bred aort. Suoh ia no
fanoy picture; it ia one that tens of thousands of dairymen and farmers could, and
doubtless would, willingly attest.
And, with regard to Shorthorns aa dairy
oattle, it cao be confidently asserted that,
aa they at preaent exist, they ara phenomenally better than could have been expected of thom considering that they have
been bred in auch a haphazard way, so far
aa their dairy capabilitiea are concerned.
We may all look forward to a much moro
systematic and carefully-worked outmanago,
ment in dairy cattle-breeding in future.
We have improved appliances by which,
with the least possible troublo, not only the
quantity of milk a cow may give can he determined, but a definite estimate of the
quality of suoh milk uau be at once obtained.
The tendenoy has heen to overvalue a
class of cowa that, at calving, or aoon after,
have an extraordinary bag development,
when in everyday cxpetienco these big-
bagged cowa may, and often do, fall ahort
in two very Important points. They may
j*ive a great quantity of milk't * a ahort
time, but after being again in calf, they may,
and many do, go off quickly. And, again,
although giving a great quantity of milk,
the quality may be so poor that, for all
other purposes except milk-selling, they are
less thrifty than many of their neighbors'
with a lighter milk record.
And all these things requiro muoh more
careful attention than they have yet had.
The hay hazard way cow-owners have
hitherto arrived at an estimate of the values
of their cowa haa been most unsatisfactory
and unbusinesslike. The evidence of those
owner* who have gone in for simply weighing each cow'a milk invariably goes to ahow
that tho top common system of depending
upon milkers' statement* as to a cow's
milking powers is a very uncertain one.
If we are to settle down to Ihe belief
that to get great milk -fat producers we have
to depend upon narrow-cheated, weakly
constitutional cowa, the outlook is dark
enough. If, on the other hand,'our atrong
wide-cheated cowa, are leas valuable than
they ought to be, simply on acoout of neglect on the part of breeders, there is a
glorious prospect and a wide field open lo
every breeder of Sliortliorns,
find to do in the hest and moat thorough
manuer, as by Cud'a law, makes that and
the action hue. It ia not so much the work
as tbe manner in which it is done that ennobles the worker. A well-scrubbed floor
is a much mure useful work than a badly
executed oil paiutiog in which muoh valuable canvas and other material haa gone to
waste. Intelligence and faithfulness tell
iu every department of work. Respect
your work whatever lhat work may be,
and remember that the best, brightest and
wisest of men and women will respect you,
Care of Milk In Berlin.
At Herr Bolle'a famous dairy in Berlin
Germany, the milk ia a trained through wire
aievea covered with a oloth over which fine
gravel ia sprinkled. After the milk ia
strained the gravel ia put in a hot oven,
that any gertna that may possibly have
been strained from the milk may be destroyed. The gravel ia thua used for filtering
the milk any number of times. For the
butter made at thia dairy both aweet and
sour cream are uaed, that made from aweet
cream commanding the higher price. After
the compartments filled with a particular
kind of milk are filled, the wagon ia locked,

A despatch from  Tieu-Tacn  aays .���A
number of officers who wore engaged in
the naval battle on the Yalu   Kiver have
arrived at Port Arthur with half a dozen
warships bad ly damaged and filled with
wounded mon.
Admiral Tinge's fleet left port on Friday evening to convoy seven steam
transport! conveying a large force of
troopa. A number of Kuropeana in the
service of tho Chinese admiralty accompanied the troopa, whioh were to be landed
near Wipi, from which point they were to
be aent to tho front. These troops comprised aome artillery, but were mostly
comprised of infantry. Nothing waa aeen
of the enemy uutil the Chinese fleet reaohed the mouth of the Yalu River, when a
fleet of Japanese warships were sighted.
Thereupon the transports were hurried
forward and two warships were oleared for
action. The efforts of the transports to
land the troopa were auoceaaful, and moat
of them were gotten ashore before the naval
battle began.
The Chen Yuen was the first vesael to
open fire, and waa aoon engaged with two
Japanese warships of about the same si/e,
one of whioh is supposed to have been the
cruiser Chlyoda. Soon all of the vessels of
both fleets were engaged. The Chinese
cruisers Chi-Yuen and King Yuen were
sunk, and (JOO officers and men on board of
them were drowned.
Only a few of the men struggling In the
water were picked up. TheChao Yung and
Yang Wei, in manoeuvring for mora advantageous positions, get into shallow water
and ran aground. The stranded vessels
were helpless under thfl fire of tha big guns
of the Japanese ships and were finally aet
on fire by the enemy's sheila and became
Itisfearedsome of the transportahips were
sunk, inclnd ing one whose troopa hadnotyet
landed The Chinete loss is estimated at 1500
killed and wounded, and the Japanese loss
is supposed to be 1000, but none of the
Chinese officers giving accounts of the
battle know the namea or size of the four
vent-els of the enemy whioh are altedged to
have been taken.
Taking the Chinese best view of the
battle, it is plain that the encounter has
resulted in seriously crippling the naval
strength of China.

As September 26, the date aet for the
95,000 oattle between Dan Creedon and
Bob Fitzaimmona, grows nearer its uncertainty growa greater and the interest of
the sporting world increases. While Fit/,
simnions will no doubt be a hot favorite in
the betting, yet the truth of the matter is,
that bnt very few have got a true line on
Creedon. While the wise men of the ling
who have oome in touch with him, are say*
ing but little out loud, it ia a welt-known
fact that Fitzaimmona' followers are finding
in a quiet way all the [Creedon money they
Personally Fitzaimmona haa always
believed that Creedon was easy game,
But then, Creedon haa improved almoat
beyond belief aince he oame to this country. The instruction he received while
helping to train Corbett for tlio Mitchell
fight did him no ond of good, while his
method of living and manner of taking
care of himself haa greatly improved hia
Some timo ago it was reported that
Creedon whs a victim of muscular rheumatism and that hia daya as a fighter had
passed. Thia haa no doubt taken many of
ih'! sporting farternity over to the Fit*-

While ploughing in a field a few days
ago on Woodson's Kidge, near Oxford, Mias.,
a negro discovered hia mule'a foot to bo
entangled and sunken some distance below
tho surface of the ground. When the foot
waa drawn out the negro was dumfounded
over the jingling of coin and a few golden
piecea that flew up with the extricated foot
of the animal. He immediately dug down
and brought up a large tin can containing,
he says, $1,700 in gold ooins.
Creedon is doing hia training in St, Louis
under the care of his foster brother, Tommy
Traoy. He was aeen in the oflice ot his
manager, Col. John D. Hopkins, by a
Chronicle reporter, and among other thinga
unbosomed himself regarding the' 'muscular
rheumatism" story :
"In Deoember last" (he laughed when
the subject waa broached) "I waa giviii-
sparrlng exhibitions with a variety am
athletic company. We played a week'a
engagement in Boston. During Christmas
week it waa bitterly oold, the theatre in
whioh we played was uiiaerably heated
behind the curtain. The dressing-rooms
were so cold that you could actually aee
your breath. My oontraot with the manager stipulated that I was to box two bouts
of three rounds eaoh, one of whioh was to
be "try-out" with any local fighter possessed of an ambition to make me 'bite the
"Though my task waa not a severe one
from a scientific point of view, the work
waa hard and monotonous and the perspiration streamed from my pores aa I scampered from the stage into my cold,damp dressing-room. I resisted the shock of theae sudden changes until the night before we closed
our engagement, when, as I waa dressing
preparatory to leaving the theatre, a
sicken ine chill penetrated my back, my
legs ached and i suddenly became aick at
my atomach. I drank two hot whiskeys
in a neighboring saloon,hurried to my hotel,
and huddled up in bed.
"On the following morning on awakening,
my right ankle waa atiff and sore, and the
muscles of my arm were swollen and pained
"I rapidly grew worse. My physician
ordered hot water bags for my feet and
prescribed an alkali concoction for muscul*
ar rheumatism. Within a week I was unable to bear my weight on my feet.
"I discharged my physician in despair
and tried enough so-called rheumatic curea
to stook a fair sized drug store. By the
advicejof Col. John D. Hopkins, my manager, 1 purchased a box of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Col. Hopkins had read ao
muoh in the papers of the man elloua cures
made by Pink Pills, and being a victim of
perlodioal attacks of rheumatism, gave
them a trial.
'Physicians be hanged, I have spent hundreds of dollars on 'em," here broke in
Col. Hopkins.
"After using one box of Pink Pills," continued Creedon, "tho pain gradually relaxed, my appetite improved, I atarted
taking a aecond box, and the paiu and
swelling disappeared from my ankles aud
feet, and the muaolea of my arms were restored to their normal condition.
"I left for Jacksonville, Fla., New
Year'a Day with " Billy Delaney, trainer
of Jim Corbett, to assist in preparing the
champion for the international glove contest with Charley Mitohelt. I had finished
iny aecond box of Pink Pilla when I left
Boston. The sudden change of the climate
combined with the malarial atmosphere of
Corbett's training quarters at Mayport,
revived the pain in my muscles and I became alarmed at my condition.
" I went up to .Jacksonville and secured
another supply of Fink Pilla, The marvellous effect of theae Pills almost baffles
"Tho Pink Pills battled successfully
with the rheumatism and the seeds of
malaria planted in my ayatem by the
damp nights spent on the Florida coast.
I waa in oondition to begin work with
Corbett after a few day's rest and was
rapidly restored to health, the musoles
of my legs and arms being as strong and
good aa ever,
"I never in my life worked harder
than during the Corbett training campaign at Mayport, The rheumatic
ankles of a few weeks previous, were free
from soreness and stiffness, as all visitors
to Mayport who witnessed ma play handball and speed over the hard sand of the
beach oan attest.
A remarkable feature Is, that
plunged from the cold of the North into
the dampness of the Florida climate into
a rheumatic siege, taking no particular
care of my health beyond the regularity of
my Pink Pill treatment. I give you every
detail of the caae in order to end all further
controversy about my condition. I never
felt better in my lifo and, barring acci-
dants, will be ready to fight tho fight of my
life on Sept. 2(ith."
I hereby certify that tho foregoing interview ia truthful In every detail.

Tbe reoent rich discovery of gold at Coolgardio, which has been oabled from Australia, promises to be one of the moat important ever made in that colony. Sir Malcolm
Fraaer,agent general for Western Australia
in England, in discussing tha atrike the
other day aaid the present generation need
not trouble about the permanency of the
gold mining in that colony. He believed
we were ouly standing upon the threshold
and that greater things are yet to oome. In
July, 1889, aome energetio gentlemen, led
by W. Anstey, went oo a prospeoting tour
to a poaition about .'MO miles eastward of
Perth, when almost a legendary report had
arisen that gold could be found In a district
since named Yilgarn. Theae gentlemen
fouud that the report waa not a myth, aa a
gold centre named Southern Croas was discovered, in and around whioh good paying
reefs were found. In the aame distriot.nome
milea north of Coolgardio, a discovery had
been made which would seem to eclipse
anything ever discovered in the world'a
history. A hole 5 foet 4 inches wide and 3
feet deep had yielded ��10,000 firat, and
then enough gold waa left to scale 200
weight. This reef waa outcropped for a
diatanoe of half a mile, and it was believed
to be a deep one,
"The auriferous belts of western Australia," aaid Sii M. Fraaer, '-extend from the
Dundas hills In the south to the Ord river
in the north, a distance of over 1,200 miles.
Of courae it does not follow that every mile
of thia ground is auriferous, but when you
think of the wonderful discoveries already
made it la not too much to expect that the
greater portion of thia land will bo found
to bo gold-bearing. The utmost energy haa
been brought to hear upon the construction
of railways, The Hue to Coolgardie haa
been completed to Southern Crosa, a distance of 300 milea, leaving over I'd) miles
to construct, whioh is to be proceeded with
at once, and the line to Upper Murohiaon,
a distance of 300 miles, ia being rapidly
"Thia will connect the fields with a good
seaport, aud thus give tha necessary impetus to the rapid development of the district,
It is in contemplation to construct other
lines to the more northern parts ot tho
colony to bring theae districts into line.

quite tropical, accompanied by the moat
violent thundor-atorms, ia precipitated on
the thirsty soil. The average yearly rainfall at Coolgardie haa been estimated at
twelve inches in ahowera, or, rather, de*
luges, of ahort duration. It only remains
for the Ingenuity of man to catch and pre-
serve this beneficial and ample rainfall to
provide for every one ofa very large colony
of miners. Apart from thia, aalt water
can be readily obtained in most parte by
deep sinking, and this hu been found to he

Aa aoon aa I waa up and about. 1 hunted
up Ethel, and as ahe happened to ba alao
hunting up me on her own account, we
very aoon found ourselves alone together,
not In the shrubberies but upon the lawn,
where we oould at onoe discontinue our
conversation, and plunge boldly into something else, ahould anyone break In upon
"I hav* newa for you, Ethel."
"And 1 have news for   you."
"Bless my aoul 1 we are alwaya doing, or
thinking, or wanting the aame thing, or
having the aame thing happen to ua at the
aame time, It'a marvelous 1 Well what la
it and what ia it all about*."
"It'a no very great aecret dear. U'a
aimply this, that a man, who happens to
be eligible and to be alao a very good
fellow into the bargain, haa proposed to
"Good beavena, you don't say ao 1 And
a man, who happens to be a very nlco fellow and to be very eligible into the bargain,
haa a second time proposed to me. It al*
moat begina to look aa if we were bewitched,   Tell me now; who ia your man?"
-'Before I answer that, you muat tell me
whether you have accept-d Lord Aahwell
thia time or whether you have been insane
tnough to onoe again aend the poor man off
about hia buaineaa."
"No, Ethel, I have done the right
and the merciful thing thia time. I have
told him that I will do all I can
to make him a moat amiable and in every
way a model wife, and I have aent him off.
I really believe, ao happy that he hardly
aeema to know what to do with himaolf.
Now tell mo what you have done, or rather
tell me lirst, who your victim ia."
"My victim, aa you ara pleaaed to term
him, lady Craven, ia bearing np wonderfully under all the oircumstancea. Allow
me to inquire after the health of yours."
"Mine ia radiant with delight and now
that we have eaoh of us hooked and practically landed our fiah, suppose we begin to
compare notes. Who ia your fiah, what
doea he scale, how old if he, and ia he in
seasonable oondition ?"
"I wilt anawer categorically. My fiah ia
named Sir Thomaa Jackson, and ia an Alderman and ex-Lord Mayor, and very presentable in evory respect. Of hia exact calling I
know nothing aa yet, except tbat he ia
���omething in the oity and muat make a fair
amount of money by purauing that occupation, aa bia private residence and place of
reaidence out of businesa houra ia la Chef-
ham Place. He may be a toap boilir. for
all that I care ao long aa he ia content to do
what ia right and handsome in tbe way of
aettlemeuta, pocket-money, and other auch
mature of detail. It is in the matters of detail
dear Miriam, that the whole secret of thia
world really lief. Look to your detaila.aud
the larger mattera will take care of them-
aelvea quite naturally."
"So 1 am coming to believe. Firat.how-
ever, let me congratulate you with all my
heart. We are auch very old friends, and
good frienda,that I need hardly dosoin aaet
speech,now let me in turn tell you all about
my own love etieir. I have made my fiance
the happiest of men, and he ia, I believe, at
thia moment either dreaming of me, or
���Iaa thinking of me over hia after
breakfast cigar and brandy and sola. For
Heaven's sake, if ho ahould come up, aa he
may at any moment, don't look full of
guilty knowledge. Try and talk as if nothing whatever was passing in your mind.
Put on what I have heard you call a casual
appearance. It la a very happy phrase, ex*
Actly hitting off what it describes."
"I will look, my dear, aa casual aa I pot-
albly oan, and I had better perhapa begin
to look ao at once, forbore comes the young
gentleman himself."
The young gentleman himself waa bearing
down upon ue at thia juncture and wanting
to know whence we came, and whither we
were going, and what we thought of the
weather, and ao on, gave me at lut the
chance of telling him that I waa going up
to London on business that very afternoon,
having in faot received a letter which made
it neceasary that I ahould do so.
Lord Aahwell drove mo up to the station,
aod aaw me off- Arrived at Paddington, I
procured a hanaom, and, in about twenty
minutea, found myself once again in thc
offices of Messrs, Wylie ft Wylie.
Mr, George Wylie received me in hia
usual manner, although with more deference, 1 farcy, than he would ahow to ordinary clients. And he then proceeded to
���xtraot my buaineaa from me eo skilfully
and rapidly that he really knew all about
it before I, for my own part, waa aware that
I even told him anything.
Wheu he had leatnt what he wished to
know he congratulated me very gravely
and courteously. Lord Ashwell, he aaid,
Waa ft young nobleman, whom eveiybody
liked, and who had never been involved in
any scandal, or even difficulty ; else he,
Mr. Wylie. would moat certainly have
known all about it. Hia lordship waa in
the beat set, and belonged to two or three
of the very beat clubs, the Carlton aud
White's for instance. He waa aaid and believed, to have very considerable ability,
and to be certain oneday to make his mark
in the Upper Houso, And then Mr, Wylie
abruptly gave the conversation a new
departure by asking mo whether I had as
yet told Lord Aahwell of, what he politely
termed, the persecutions to which I had
been subjected.
I answered that I had not aa yet had
time to toll Lord Ashwell anything, and
that my real object in coming up to town
had beeu to aak him, Mr. Wylie, what he
thought I had better do.
The man of law considered the matter fora moment, not being, according to
hla usual practice, ready at once with
an entire solution of tho whole difficulty.
Then, having thought the matter out,
he replied cheerfully:
"Of courae you muat let him know, sooner or later, and before your engagement
gate abroad ; or, if you do not, aome enemy
or other will do the thing for you. It is
quite necessary that it ahould be done, and
I advise you to do it at once. The only
possible question is, wilt you do it yourself,
or shall somebody do it for you'���* Now, I
would gladly go beyond the routine of professional duty, only that I think you had
better tell Lord Aahwell yourself. Then
cornea the point whether you shall write to
him, or whether you ahall tell him, and if
I were you I ahould moat certainly tell him.
Ha is ft young man of atrong oommon sense.
He is sure to Know this story already. In
all human probability he haa heard the caso
discussed several times, and from every
pouible point of view. If ao, he will have
formed his own opinion, and I have very
little doubt myself u to what that opinion
will be."
"But tbe papers were ao down on me," I
"Leading articles in newspapers," he
replied, "always accept the fait aozompll,
always say that they had foreseen it all
along; always make it out worse than it iB;
and alwaya moralize about it in a manner
which is often sublimely impertinent and
aickeningly hypocritical. No man with any
confidence in his own opinion is ever influenced by the papers, Lord Ashwell,
whatever he may have read at the time,
will have formed his own judgment upon
your history, and I should say that his
judgment would be a sound one.
"And all these things being so, I oannot
help thinking that your best courae ia to
tall him yourself who you really are, and
then to suggest tbat he should come and
see ma, as i had Mr. Sabine's confidence
entirely/, and can thoroughly satisfy Lord
Ashwell upou any point he may wish to be
informed about."
Thia wu evidently meant to be final, ao
I wiahed Mr. Wylie good day; wu escorted by him in person to my oab, and, u I
had determined to stay in town for the
night, wu driven at once to my old quart-
era at the Langham.
On this occasion, instead of going to the
play, I dined rather late, with the allowance of a pint of champagne. A man after
thia would, of course have smoked. I, on
the contrary, aat before the fin (for tt wu
rather chilly) with aome tea and a small
glass of fine champagne, and then wrote a
fetter, which, u I knew, would, if
despatched by hand to the station-box at
Paddington, reach Tho Uplands in the
moroing mail bag.
My letter waa abort enough, but I know
that Lord Ashwell would be delighted to
hear from me. I told him tbat I had got
through the little shopping tbat had taken
me up to town entirely to my satisfaction,
and tnat I intended to return by an early
train the next morning, whioh would land
ma at the atation at about eleven, and that
I ahould then drive straight to the house.
I pleaded the necessity for catching the
float aa an exouae for the shortness of tha
Btter, and having made certain that It
would be aent off safely, went to bed earlier
than my usual hour.
My lover met me at the station. He
had sent down from London a i
stanhope, ftnd ft couple of fut-trotting
cobs, whioh he said he wished me to try.
I need not remind my reader that my
little experience of driving had been
acquired very late in life. But I had ft
natural aptitude for it, ftnd I oould feel
aa I took the reins that the horsea knew
their mistress, and that Lord Aahwell
could see u muoh.
When we reaohed The Uplands I promised that I would join him at therustiohouse
by the campshead aa soon u I had changed
my traveling dress. Thii operation 1 performed with great oare, trying to make
myself look at my very best, and I really
think succeeding tolerably well. Then I
nude my way down to the water's edge,
and there found Lord Aahwell throwing
pebbles more or less aimlessly into the
water, and evidently in an extremely
reatleu frame of mind.
He began at onoe about myself, and
about our marriage. How soon wu it to
be ? and when and where wu it to take
plaoe! and how soon might he tell ill his
freinde about it? At preaent he had
thought it best to keep strictly to the very
Utter of our understanding, and to tell no
one. But, of course, the thing mnst be
known sooner or later, he did not really see
any reuon why it should nnt just u well
be made public at onoe. Why should we
not tell the Fox's who were kind people,
and would be aure to be pleased, and have
the whole thing put in the Post in the
shape of the customary announcementt
There wu not the least occasion for any
mystery, and for his own part he wanted
the news to be made public property u
aoon u possible,
Ho wu evidently In earnest, and not at
all in ft humor to be put otl. All that I
could do wu to beg nim for a few days
to let mattera rest u they were.
"I have no doubt," I said, "you will
think me fanciful, ao perhapa 1 am. In
faot, I think that all women are fanciful
more or leas. I oan only uk yon for just
this once to bear patiently with me, and
to honor my fancy, A day or two, or even
a couple of weeks (for which I do not uk,
and have no intention of asking), is a very
little matter after all, where two lives are
concerned. As for our marriage itaelf, I
have no wiah to postpone that indefinitely,
or, in faot, at ull. I only want a few days
"Well, my darling," he answered, "it
is idle to pretend that I am uot disappoint*
ed, for I am, and I tbink I have a little
reason to be. I always hated mystery,
and I wanted to have had the whole thing
out at once. It must be, however, u you
pleaie. For the present I will say nt
more about it, but we oannot, of course,
prolong our stay here indefinitely. The
best of the people have gone already, and
the reat will soon be going. For my part,
I think the sooner wa let the thing be
known, and without giving people any unnecessary time to think about it and
chatter about it, get married up in London
and are off to the Continent, the better it
will be.   Cannot you give ine any idea!"
Upon what slight oircumstancea our
whole life often lingers. I felt strongly���
almost irresistibly-tempted then and there
to tell him everything; out my evil destiny
prompted me to put olf doing ao. I wu
tired with my journey, with late hours,
and with the excitement of my triumph,
and perhaps also I waa vain enough to believe that a little something like coquetry
might not be altogether without avail. So
I put the matter lightly by, telling him
that I should very probably make up my
mind that night, and that I would certainly let him know before dinner the noxt
Then wo made our way up through the
reddening plantations to i the house, for,
early u it was, the mists were already he*
ginning to Ile heavily on the meadows, and
among the reeds and sedge.
Wo parted in the hall, and 1 made my
way to my own num. 1 had looked to one
or two little things, ftnd wu beginning to
think of going downstairs to luncheon, whon
Ethel burst into the room,
"I have to be off at onoo to Paris, my
dear," ahe began, "I won't bother you
with my affairs. You have quite enough
ot your own to occupy all your attention ;
but go I must, or I most certainly would
not be leaving you at this particular crisis,
I have looked at, the Dradanaw, and all the
other authorities, and I find that if I leai e
here at five sharp, I can just manage to do
mattera comfortably. Alt my packing ia
completed, my formal adieux have been
made, and thero is nothing left for me but
to lie ready for the carriage when it comes
round to the door. Meantime I bave a
letter for you whioh hu l-enn forwarded
from Paria, where it wu addressed oare of
myaelf. It Is idle to pretend that I do not
know the writing, for it happens to be that
of Prince Balanikoff. Open it at once, my
ohild, and let me know what that moat
estimable of Russians, and least bearlah.has
to say for himself."
1 complied, more or less mechanically,
and with ft certain amount of uneasiness.
I was passing through a very severe and
sharp crisia, and my nerves were strung to
the most extreme point ot tension.
The letter itself did not take by any
means long to read, or to master ita purport. It was not brief, but it wu tren-
ohantly to the point.

Of course I am wrong in breaking it. Mais,

to me in odd ways, and I have heard newa
of yourself, and, to tell you the truth, of
Lord Aahwell. I hope what I hear may be
untrue, u his Lordship is a most estimable
apeoimen of a young English country gentleman, and would, no doubt, make a model
and extremely affectionate husband. Of
that I have no manner of doubt. But it is
only my duty to let you know, ai soon as I
possibly can, that yon an threatened with

wu awakened by hearing a strange noise
in the room.
������ You can imagine I wu considerably
startled at beholding a man with a handkerchief tied over his face standing by my bedside. In hie hand wu a dark lantern,
which shone fully on my face. Ho did not
give mo muoh time to think, but in a gruff
voice demanded my watch and money, I
don't know whatever put the idea into my

possible, I said:

will you promise not to molest me and leave
me to finish my sleep'!"
" Well, you arc a cool one, Imust aay,'

to harm you, and leave you in peace."
" 1 will take you at your word," said I;
" my watch is at the jeweler's being repaired and every cent I havo ia looked up in
the safe downstairs."
He stared at mo a minute or two,
though trying to tell by my face if I had
spoken the truth. It muit have convinced
him, tor, muttering something I did not
catch, he turned on his heel and walked
out of the room without a word.
II Is ���-Ureal Baltic  Whea  Two  or Them
tome Together.
A ahort time tgo the Attention of the
paaungera on a ateamer off the Southern
Pacific coast wu attracted by what wu
evidently a fight between two ae* monsters.
What appeared to be ft mountain of foam
firat caught their attention ; thon an enormous toil wu seen teased into the air. Then
tho monster breached and rolled over and
over, beating the water into foam with resounding blows that could bo hoard a mile or
mon with tho wind. Nothing but the
gnat black mau could be aeen, ftnd for
twenty minutea the strange aigbt continued,
*-o the wonderment of the voyagers.
Ifthe ateamer oould have approached
they would havo witnesud a moat unequal
struggle between a large whalo and ft foa of
inaigniflcftnt site. Beneath tbe water
several awordfish, or possibly oue, ware
literally prodding the large animal to its
death, running their sharp aworda into ita
unwiedly form until tbe creature wu In ft
perfeot fury, and could only fling Ita huge
tall about in impotent rage. Suoh incidents
art by no means rare at sea, and tho pres'
ence of the awordfish u the causo of tbe
trouble is often disputed, but in nine cases
out of ten It is the offender. Enraged for
aomo reuon at the presence of the whale,
It duhea repeatedly at it, sending its sharp
sword into it, ftnd in some instances producing its death. The unrelenting ftnd ferooioua
nature of the awordfish ia not generally
known, but the latter may be aet down u
among the moat dreaded of all fishes, con*
sidoring the damage it does and the havoc
it plays among other fishes. It may be
said that the fish -It utterly without fear and
will, like a Cape buffalo or a rhinoceros,
oharge anything that offends the eye, in
this way often doing an amount of execution hardly to be believed did not the
evidence exist.
The combats with Its own kind ara most
interesting, and may be compared to two
expert swordsmen who have rushed to the
contest, not with folia but with rapiers, and
fence for blood. Snch a contest wu obaerved
In Pacific waters not long ago. Some fishermen noticed two big fish leaping out of
the water and dashing along at the surface.
Soon they taw that they were Bwordfish.
The season wu when the fish an supposed
to be pairing, and the mates are unusually
ferocious. They had msde several rushes,
snd when oburved were at close quarters,
striking eaoh other powerful side blows like
cavalrymen. This wu unsatisfactory, and
finally they separated and darted at eaoh
other tike arrows, the water hiaaing u their
sharp dorsal tint out through it. Thoy evidently ttruok head on, one missing, while
the sword of the other atruck juat below
the eye and ploughed ft deep furrow in the
fiah, partly disabling it, ao that it turned
aud attempted to escape. But itt ad veraary,
now thoroughly aroused, also turned, and
with a rush drove ita sword completely
through its body and, despite Ita struggles,
held it tut, only wrenching its weapon
Ioom when ita enemy stopped swimming.
This one lunge had finished the battlo, ftnd
tho victor left the field. Tho vanquished,
floating on the surface, wu picked up by
the fishermen. The writer later oburved
the wounds, wbioh gave ample evidence of
tho ferooity of tho attack. The force with
which a awordfish strikea hu been variously estimated, bnt that it ia equal to that
which drives a twenty-four-pound shot from
a howitzer oan be believed from viewing
tbe results.
Id the waters of the Pacific at leut three
kinds of swordfishes oan bo seen���Xiphiua
gladius, Tetrapturua albidus, and Hiatop-
phorua gladius. The two former have been
observed by the writer. The fish engaged
in the battle described wero of the kind
first nimed. It to the ordinary awordfish
found on both tides of the Atlantic, fn
appearance trim and shipshape���a veritable privateer. It is ft piratical ooutin of
the mackerel. The striking feature is
the sword, whioh is ft continuation of the
upper jaw into a sharp, bony sword. The
jawa are toothless, the lower one being
hard or horny. The eyes are large ana
prominent, the tail sicklo-sbaped and
powerful and the whole appearance of the
fiah denotes speed and activity. It attains
a length of from five to nino feet, and,
when working at full speed, can pierce any
ship with wooden hull aheatlied with
copper. Many remarkable instances of
this are known, and thero is hardly a week
in the year but something of the kind is
recorded by shipping agents.
One of the most rematkable .cases on
record it that of the ship Dreadnought.
Onu day, at tea, the enw felt a sudden
shock, and aoon after that the ship sprang
a leak and wu obliged to put into port.
It wu found, when she wu drydocked,
that a large awordfish had struck her.
One of tho finest apeclmen of the Tetrap-
turns albidus ever aeen in Pacific watera
found recently by the writer in a little
bay on one of the ialands off shore. It
wu ft magnificent specimen about six feet
in length, the body massive and powerful
and remarkable for its shape. It did not
taper to tht tail, as many of ita tribe do,
but oontinued large all the way to the tail,
whioh wu a powerful organ. It had a long
dorsal fin almoat the entire length ot the
back, and ite sword wu short. Evidently
it had been partly broken in a fierce combat
with another of its kind. The head wu
large, u were alto the eyes, I examined the
fiah for the cause of hts death, and found
that it, too, bad doubtless' succumbed
to a fierce thrust from an enemy, possibly ft
Xiphius, or long-sword fish, u it hftd ft
single out 2\ inches wide that penetrated
the entire body like a knife, The defeated
swordsman had apparently been carrying on
an unequal tight, Armed with a short sword
or dagger, it had been struck by a cavalry*
man of the sea, whose keen rapier had killed it, the fiah being blown in ahore to the
amazement of the fishermen of the island,
who had never sun a fish of tht k ind on tlio
Pacific oout  before.
"When it came drifting in," said an old
aea dog, "I thought It wu a porpoise, it
wu so big ; but when it got in shore I aee
it wu something like a awordfish, though 1
never uw the likes of it before. Ite sword
���. _ ahort, but it had a body like a batterin'
ram, and if It atruck anything it would
have to give in aure."
A singular thing in connection with the
awordfiah ia that little or nothing ia known
io regard to ite breeding habita,and a young
awordfish, so far u known, haa never been
seen on the Pacific oout. The young are
curloua creatures, with enormous eyea, and
the bills, upper and lower are equal in

Flowers In the Sickroom.
A great deal of nonsense hu been talked
about the injurious effect* of (lowers in
the sick-room. The presence of flowers
with atrong odora is usually offensive to
persons in health, and, of courao, is much
more to to an invalid with supersensitive
nerves. The presence, however, of flowers
with delicate fragrance is generally beneficial. Certain colors are aaid to aot

blossoms aro stimulating, while delicate

There are various ways in which spread
itiy ont works harm, but it is the salvation of a new town. Even here the principle must be rightly applied, and thu*.
applied it means that frame buildings
must not be crowded together. There
is plenty of land, and until brick woiks
are established in our midst so as to furn-
ibh us the best and most durable of alt
material cheaply���and another year will
probably witness this���we should spread
out. In this way we can keep down in
durance rates, and protect our new town
from distinction by fire. Not only that
but the intermediate vacant lots will
largely increase in value. It's a short
sighted policy to build compactly now
for the sake ofa little present supposed
advantage, to reap a baptism of fire later
on. Let us learn wisdom by the folly of
others. If we do not have a care the Insurance companies will withdraw, and
then one must have a large capital to
command credit. .Spread out and fill in
later on with substantial brick structures.
Good appearances go a great ways.
Hence the front of the lots abutting on
our main street should be cleared of rubbish and stumps. We cannot enforce
this by ordinance because we arc not yet
incorporated; but if each owner will do
his share, which would be but little, the
thing would be accomplished. Our own
interests dictate such a course, for property would be enchanced in value; and
as we are here to stay we should commence at once to make the place attractive. The planting of maple tress along
the street front, cun best be done now,
and in a comparatively short space of
time they would add much to the beauty
of the place. We are quite well aware
that there is usually an appearance of
ciudncss about a new town, but this
should not be allowed to continue an unnecessary length ol time. There will be
no better time tn clear off the front of
0111 lots than now, nnd the work should
not be delayed. After removing the unsightly roots and debris, a couple of
planks might be put down which would
answer for the time being for a sidewalk.
Tram Third street to First���which includes the business portion of Cumberland���we should no longer be compelled
to take Paddy's sidewalk���the middle of

about would be removed by adopting the
measures suggested. Thc hotels have
provided good approaches and so have
some ofthe business houses, while some
of thc latter sadly need a tew loads of
dirt with a covering of gravel between
them and thc street.

who traveled from Tillage to village with
hit troop ot acrobats, juggler* and train
"What oan you dor he aaked.
������Anything requiring tkilt aad agility.'*
"Ah I that la laying a great deal.
Can yoa give tola aa evidence of yonr
The wordt were acarcely tpoken when
they made a perilous leap over hia head,
turned a doable totnertanlt, and landed
in nailing precision before him. Pedro
wae delighted; the engagement waa
toon concluded at a very traall weekly
ttipend, the brother! saying: "Pay ua
what yoa pteatu; yon mutt decide tbat."
From the advent of those two nn-
.known (for no one knew their mat iiaiw-t
���they ��imp]y ���tyltd themselves. Diok
and Dock) good fortune teemed to tuiile
on thii traveling show.
In truth, it waH imiKKuible to Ima-rinp
anything more graceful and daring thau
these young acrobats, whether mispond
ed from the trapett*, ftyiag through tbe
air, or leaplag and vaulting in tho moot
wonderful manner���they teemed as onu
body animated by one will; thon with
inuomparabltt grace they would light on
their feot, aud, hand In hand, r-rcei-ro
the plaudits of the delighted crowd,
while golden loitU, houqueta and billets*
doux, thrown by dainty hands, would
fall in tht sawdust ring. But those per
fumed billet* noYor had the honor of
being opened���not even their teals
broken���for Dick and Dock teemed utterly oblivious to bloudet or brunettes,
and when not in the arena, were always
itudying their profettinn or practicing
new feata of ttrength and agility.
Nevertheless, they were good cun
radet with Juannot, the clown; with the
cannon-ball man and with the colo-isal
fat woman, who waa no other than
madame Pedro henelf. Amid all this
adultation r-nlj* oue person leemod indifferent to their attractions aud that

spangled with gold; sho looked like some
aerial creature dying round the ring,
leaping through the hoop* of pnp-x.
Fresh aa a rose and changeful aa a
butterfly, ihe mockingly teasad the
brothers, sometimes running aftor Dick,
sometimes leaping on the trapote behind
Dock. Very eold and correct they
silently received her coquetries, never
showing the least familiarity to the
daughter of their patron.
Time rolled on, and gold rolled into
the coffers of Pedra. He was growing
rich, and often wondered at the indifference of Dick aud Dock, who hivd
never asked for an increase of salary.
Thia mercenary Spaniard, Pedro, could
understand why a man would toll for
profit or position, bnt to work for little
or noting wna nnnntural���there muat be
tome'Mng behind it
��u I .eulr a thought struck him. They
-a tie -iriving to establish a reputation,
and would then aet up a bunim-ma for
themselves. He mnst retain these
valuable a>��tsti-,ota by a bond not easily
broken. "I will give them my daught
er Nit*.   Sapritttd the can only marry
one or tnera; which shall It be? Dick is
stronger than Dock, bat Duck It more
agile and graceful."
Then Pedro took a decided retolntion
and laid his dilemma before the brothers,
"Which ono of yoa will marry my little Nita!"
Dick and Dock exchanged looks, then
one of them aaid: "In teu dayt we will
answer you."��� "Ah, yea," confirmed the
other; "In ten dayt."
"That's all right." said Pedro. "After
the balloon ascension; I understand."
Pedro had arranged with an aeronaut
for a balloon ascension, a trapeze to be
attached to thn car, on which the brothers would perform thoir wonderful feats
five hundred motors above the earth.
Naturally, they wished to wait until
after this neriloua adventure before they
could decide.
Shut up in a court they daily practised
those dangerous exercises which were to
angment their renown aud the pocket-
book of their employer.
The day of the exhibition arrivod���a
perfect sea of faces���the baloon on the
centre swaying like n bird trying her
wings. Wild shouts of euthusiiutui as
Nita appeared In lior ifold-tpangled costume, dexterously driving the chariot
containing the two brothers. She wat
more beautiful and coquettish than ever
In her rose-colored gauze���perhaps in
contrast to Dick and Dock, who were
dressed in black velvet, lubtly touched
with silver lace���rather a funeral costume for inch a festive occasion, but
probably chosen because they would be
more clearly outlined on the bright blue
Leaping to the ground, the brothers
gracefully salute the crowd; then, taming to Nita, they kneel before her and
gracefully kiss hur hand���something
they had never done before,
Tho aeronunt mounts hit oar, follow
ed by the two brave acrobats. "Let
her loose!" A moment a alienee���then
deafening shouts of enthusiasm aa the
balloon cleaves the air.
Two young aud irracef ul forms climb
through the cordage of the car and appear upon the trapeze. Their grace and
audacity were marvelous. With folded
arms they stand facing each other, very
pale but very determined; a slight motion of tbe hips maintains their equilibrium.   Dick wus tne first to speak.
"You love Nita!"   "Yes, aud you���"
"Love her and cannot give her up."
"Aud I will not," answered Dock.
"Then fate must decide���the survivor
will take hor."
They step book the length of tho tra
pezo���a knife clasped in their right
hands���and in bitter anguish gaze upon
each other, utterly careless of the wind
that swayed the tr.ipi-ze back and forth,
nf tbo yawning gulf lielow. Then, with
panting breath and gteuuiing eyes, they
nub upon eaoh other, still clinging to
the bar that bends l>enuath thoir weight;
a frightful struggle enBUos; cheer after
cheer from thu admiring crowd, Nita
wildly applauding with the others.
Theu they stand motionless for a moment, when, by a BUddun movement,
Dick makea Dock lose his hold and fall
back on the trapeze. Dendiug over him,
he saya; "Will you give up Nita?"���
"Never I" He buries his knife iu his
brother's throat, the hot blood spurting
in his face.
With a wild maniac laugh, he rises
up and leaps into space, falling a crushed
and helpless mass un a distant roof; the
dead body of hit brother convulsively
clinging to the trapeze, floating in the
blue sky whilo the aeronant, who had
teen nothing of thia terrible tragedy,
���till waves hit gayly colored flags.    -
