The Winnipeg Free Press and the
Toronto Star are both engaged in onslaughts on the gambling dens iu their
respective cities. The former relates
this touching tale : There is a story,
almost pathetic, connected with one of
these places, a story absolutely true,
and known to be so by hundreds. A
little newsboy, a bright child, by his
shrewdness und energy hud made so
many friends among the business men
that he numbered his customers by the
hundreds, und prospered almost amazingly for a newsboy. He was able to
greatly assist his parents, who were
iu straightened circumstances, and us
his father could get but little employment, became their chief support.   One
I fatal night he was induced to "sit in
the game"  at  this com hi nut ion gum-
I bling house hotel, and this first step
pro.ed his ilcwnfuil, Night after
night he wus at the "crap" table
vainly struggling to win back his lost
'savings, until   finally   the $1,000   or
r more he had worked so hard for were
all gone, and witli them the customers
��� neglected for the gambling room, but
not only did lhe lad lose his savings
and his  customers, but his youthful
i ambition and energy were also destroyed.   The child's career was practically
1 sacrificed to the gambler's greed.

A Worlll-Olrcult Telegram.
One dny ln.it April a telegram wns
put into the hands of the courteous
chief engineer of the British postal
service, Mr. W. II. I'reece, with tho
request, that ho would say whether ii
could be sent iiround the world by a
certain route, anil il so, what time it
woifld take nnd what it would cost per
word. ��� When the person who made
this inquiry went a few days later to
look after the progress of the telegram
Air. Preece shook bis bead. "The
whole foreign department nre at it,"
he snid, "and they-are tearing their
halt- and protesting, but you shall have
it soon." The route planned was
rather erratic. It nskea' ��hnt the message, bo sent by a circuit which would
take iu the entire telegraphic field of
tho world, touching at the most remote
points, but never leaving the land line
or the cable; that is, never being
transferred by post or messenger from
ono point to another. Starting at Sun
Francisco, the route rati across the
continent to New York by Vancouver
and Montreal. From New York it followed the world's northern telegraphic
boundaries through England, Norwav.

south, ir touched at Nagasaki in Japan.

Singapore it crossed to Bombay, made

rounded the Cape of Good Hope, leaving the Hue nt SSinzibar to call at Seychelles mid Mauritius, mounted the
west African coast to St. Louis in
Seiiegnl, crossed the south Atlantic to
Periuanibuco, traversed South America
from Buenos Avres to Valparaiso, and
then went north through Mexico to
New-. York. In a few days, true io his
promise, Mr. Preece hud the answer

It wonld require about fifty-six hours,
and would cost about ninety francs

keeping has boon one of the features of the school for some
time, but cooking lessons have only
recently been added to it. This was
done not to iiinko professional cooks of
the girls, but because Mr. Pease, rouli---
ing how difficult it is to secure profitable omplovment for blind girls,
thought it wise to tench tbem to be
| valuable assistants either iu the kitchen or their own homes or those of
their friends, The girls use n wood
stove instead of a gns or hard coal
range, nun, instead of having hot
water boilers, they are require 1 to keep
the kettle filled nud hot, its country
housewives must. They urn nlso
taught to bo exquisitely clean, nnd
whenever they touch the stove or anything else thnt may soil lho hands
they aro obliged to wash them bofon

Knowing that the stove is n dangerous
clement in a kitchen where n blind
girl is at work, particular attention
has been paid to it in tbo course of
lessons. The stove is not protected
with guards nnd the girls lire required
to learn by close nttcntion and practice
how to avoid any danger when making
fires or working over the stove. ��� Milwaukee Journal.

j\ Failed Signature  lll'titic-llt to Light
Ily the -Jtimera.
An instance of the use of photography in important Isgal matters is
given, says the World's Progress, in
what is known ns the famous Stubble-
lield-Muiiford controversy. It involved the ownership ol 1500 acres of
valuable land in Fayette county, Ohio.
During Monroe's administration this
tract was willed by one of the old
Munfords to his five heirs, nnd the
present suit was brought on the deed
of sale signed by them. The Mint ford
heirs deeded the l..ml to Stubblefield,
who afterward sold parts of it to different parties, who had to pay twice
for their hind. The deed of sale, discolored and yellow with age. showed
only four signatures and a space for it
fifth,nnd the closest scrutiny could not
discover the fifth. On this signature
turned the question at issue. It wns
finally decided to photograph the signatures nnd see if the course would
disclose the fifth name. This wns
done nnder the direction of the court
by a photographic expert named Spencer, and under the closest watch of the
clerk of the court, who could not allow
the original to leave his hnnds. On
the plate be saw traces of the signature,

A Now Explosive.
A- new explosive, manufactured by
the Government of Great Britain, has
lately drawn much intention. It is
called "cordite," nnd is nn invention
of Prof. Abel. It is in the innin 11
similar product to the smokeless powders of other nations. Tho name
"cordite" originates in the process of
manufacture, during which the gun
cotton, after Iieing combined with a
sort of explosive gelatine, is pressed
through a plate with flue openings,
thus receiving t he shn|ie of fine threads.
The object of this process is that by
proper selection of the thickness of the
threads it offers great latitude in the
control of the swiftness of the explosion, which is in other 1 on-'Iurs attained by the finer or courser grain of
the particles. One ran, thorcfoio, 1 c-

quickly combustible explosive for mining purposes, or a slowly burning,

AFEARFULADVENTURE
I wns a mc-iic-il student in Paris nt the
time the strange und st irtling ud venture
happened which 111111 about to record.
Tired with long lectures and hard study,
1 was out one evening for 11 walk in tlio
fresh nir. It was a pleasant night in
mi! winter, and the cold, bracing air,
f.s it, tiinciii'il my feveiish brow, caused
n grateful sensation.
Passing tlirniuili 11 rathe*- lonely street
it'tir tint river, I was surprised ut meet*
i ig 11 young girl���-tit least, she so np*
peiirmi in tin- dim light of a rather distant street lump -who carried in her
h ind mine three or four boqiiots, which
she offered for wile.
"\V ill monsieur hnve a boquet?" she
nske.l in a sweet, ninsieiil tone, holding
out to trie 11 well arranged collection of
bi'iiiitilul flowers.
"Thev are very pretty," snid I, taking
tbem in my hand.
"Monsieur will purchase and assist
ine?" she said.
"i3o yon, then, really need assistance,
iniiileuniisclle?'
���Why else should I bo here at this
bom- of the night, monsieur?"
"Anil why here nt nil'/" quickly re-
tnrned I. '"This street is little fro-
I'liriiiled, and is about the last in tbe
world 1 siionhl have selected t'or disposing ut'11 luxnry most suited to wealth
and fashion."
bbe sighed, nnd reached out her hand
for tiie In 11-net, which I still returned.
"What is yonr price?" said I.
"Five f nines."
"A large sum."
"Monsieur will remember it is winter,
nnd flowers nre not plentiful."
"To nid yon I will purchase," re*
turned I, bunding her tho requisite
silver .coin: "for though I love flowers,
I Mould otherwise hardly indulge in
the luxury tonight ut su--.il un ex*
J.fllSO."
bue thntiiteil me, hnd seemed nbontto
pans on, but hesitated, looked up at mo,
uinl sniil:-
"Could monsienr direct mo to tho
honse of n good physician, who would
1 urn out to night mid see 11 patient for a
small recompense?"
"Any friend of yours lilt"
"My inotlii r,'' with a uVen sigh.
"Where tines she residi ?"
"Only a short distance Irom here."
"What is the mutter with her?"
".--'lie bus a liir-h fever, for one thing."
'-.When was she taken?"
"She came down last night, and has
not left her bed since."
"W hy did you not send for a doctor
ut once?"
"We Imped sho would got better
soon, and it is so expensive for poor
people to employ a physician."
"111111 myself a medical student, with
considerable experience among the sick
of iiu- hospitals, and if yon nre disposed
to 1. ust Ibe case to me, I iiiii at your
ervice without charge, I rejoined,
already feeling deeply interested iu the
fair till
"Oh. how shall I thnnk monsieur?''
she I'Xilaitnoil, with clasped hands, and
nn n,iwnr.l; irruteful look. "Prny follow 1110. "Monsienr le Docteur."
S''e turned at once and moved off at a
raj i I piii'o down the street, toward the
river Seine, in lho direction I was walk,
lug when wo me*.
In less than five minutes we bail entered a wretched quarter, among narrow
Streets. old, tottering buildings, und
s.'.iu.lid-looking inhabitants, some of
whom seemed to glare at us as wo passed along.
"Is it iniieh further?" inquired I, bo*
ginning to feel uneasy.
"Only a step, monsieur! It is jnst
here."
Almost immediately sho tnrnod Into a
covered passage, which led in back
among habitations that I should never
have voluntarily visited in tho broad
light of day. A distant Ininp jnst
served to make the gloom visible, till
she suddenly --.topped, uud opened a
door into total darkness.
"Vour hand, Monsieur le Doctctir,"
she paid, at the same timo taking it, and
leading me forward.
I was tein- tetl to draw back and refuse to go any farther, though I mechanically followed her.
We now went through n long, narrow
passage, in lolnl darkness, and. nftor
two or three short turns, la-nan to do-
scend a Cight of freaking, rotten stuirs.
"Is it possible yon live in a place liko
this?" raid I, secretly wishing myself
safely out of it.
"In Paris beggars cannot be choosers," replied the girl.
"Hut even in Paris it Is not necessary
for the living to take np their nliodo in
sepulchres," I rejoined with some asper
it v, being vexed at myself for suffering
my good nature to lend me into 11 don
fvmii which I might never come out
dive,
lo this my fair guide deigned no re
ply. On reaching the foot of the stairs,
she pushed open a door into a small,
dimly lighted room, and I followed ber
i ito it with some secret misgivings.
1 Here was a bed in one corner, and on
it appeared to be n human form, lyings
very still.
"I have brought a doctor, mother,"
said tbe girl, as she -closed the door behind me.
As there wan no reply to this, she
turned to me, saying:
"Will Monsieur le Docteur please be
seated n minute? 1 think my mother is
asleep."
"I beg mademoiselle will bear in mind
that I enn only spare a few moments to
tids case to-night, as I hnve another call
I wish to make immediately," I returned, feeling very anxious to depart
irom that subterranean quarter as soon
us I'tfsible.
--Monsieur shall not be detained long
by me,'' rejoined the girl, passing out of
the rootii liy another door.
I did not sit down,' but walked over
to the lei, where the patient was lying
very still���so still, indeed, that I could
not detect tiny breathing. A woman's
cap was on tlm head, and tho end of a
sheet eonei'llleil the face. I ventured to
Iiiiu tiiis down curutuliy, aud beheld the
eyc.e.'-s rockets and grinning toeth of a
human skull!
I started back in horror, nnd at the
same moment, the door by which the
girl had left was thrown open, and In
marched, one after the other, four tall
human figures, in black gowns anil
masks. I knew nt once, then, thnt I
was to lo robbed, and probably mnr-
dered. I wore a heavv diamond pin nnd
ring, carried a valuable gold watch, and
had in money about my person some
five hundred francs, but not a singlo
Wl-npon of any kind. Resistance Iieing
therefore nut of the question, I felt that
my only chance���if, indeed, there were
a (diniice���was to conciliate the ruffians,
and liny myself off. With n presence
of mind for which I still take to myself
considerable credit. I said at once:
"I understand it all, gentlemen, nnd
yon will find me a very liberal person to
deal with. There is one thing I value
very highly, because it is the only one I
have, inni I cannot replace it���that is
my life. Everything else of miue is at
your service, even beyond what I have
with me."
They were undoubtedly surprised to
hear tiie speak in that cool, off hand
manner, but they marched forward und
surrounded me before either returned a
word.
"How much have von with youthen?"
inquired one, in a civil way, but in a
low, gruff tone.
I immediately mentioned the different
articles of value, and the exaet amount
of money.
"All ot which I shall be pleased to
present yon with, if one of you will be
kind enough to escort me to the street
ubove," I added.
"Yon said you had more, monsienr.''
"Yes. gentlemen, I have ten thousand
frnnm in the Bank of France, and will
willingly add a cheque for half that
amount."
"Cheques don't serve onr purpose very
well," suid n second voice.
"Then I pledge you my honor that I
will to-morrow draw out five thousand
fraiu-s. and imy the amount over to any
person wbo may approach me witb this
boquet in bis hand, said I, holding out
the flowers I had purchased of the fair
decoy.
"And hnve him arrested the next
minute. 1 suppose?"
"No. on my honor, he shall depart unharmed and unquestioned; and no other
human Iieing shall lie informed of the
transaction for a week, ��� month, or a
year."
"Let ns first handle what you hove
here." raid the first speaker.
I immediately took ont my pin, took
off my ring, drew out my watch, produced my pocketbook ami purse, and
place them ail in his extended hand.
"Yon make us a present of these,
now?" he said.
"Yes. on condition that one of you
will forthwith conduct me to the street,"
I replied.
"Monsienr is a vory liberal gentlemen! Eh, comrades?" said the mask,
turning to the others.
"Avery liberal gentlemen, indeed,"
was the response.
They then drew off together, scrutinized tlie articles by the light of a smoky
lamp, ami conversed together in low
tones. I felt that thoy were holding a
consultation that involved my life, nud,
to speak the honest truth, it' seemed as
if every nerve in me quivered; and it
wns with difficulty I conld stand.
At length the principal spokesman
turned to me and said, in a very cool
and methodical manner:
"Monsienr has acted mora like a
gentleman than nny other person we
have ever had dealings with, and if wo
could, consistent with our business,
oblige him. we should be happy to do
so; but unfortunately we nre governed
by a rule, which is a law with ns, that
dead men tell no tales, and we think it
will not do 10 make an exception in this
case. We will, however, in consideration of monsieur's gentlemanly behaviour, lie as mild and lenient ns possible
in doing onr duty, and grunt monsieur
live minutes for saying his prayers.
"You have then resolved to murder
me?" gasped I.
"Monsienr hbos a very harsh term,
but we will let that pass. Yon have five
minutes yet to live by this watch."
The villain then held my watch to tho
light, and I felt indeeil that my minutes
wero numbered; and I secretly began to
Gray for the salvation of my soul, be*
eving that I conld not save my body. A (l*-atli like silence now rei-r-netl in
that gloomy apartment for some time.
��� and tlieu uue of the rtitiiiuis bent down
inul lifted a trapdoor, and from the
nark pit below issued a noisome smell.
I beheld my intended grave, and shuddered nntl shook like an aspen.
Bnt why stand there anil tlie liko a
dog, without a single attempt ut escape?
At tho worst it could be lint death, and
there was a bare possibility tha 1 might
(���et away. I fixed my eye on the dour
whichojienetl upon the stairway, mil
with n single sudiien bound reached if., |
bnt found it fast locked, Then, as thu '
bands of the ruftiuiis seized me, with
i.iii'ierous intent. I uttered a wild
iluiek, the door was burst In wilh il
loud crash, nud in n moment the room
v.iis filled with gendarmes.   I saw that
I was saved, and fainted ami fell.
The flint' musks, lhe fair decoy, and
itoitie two or three others concerned in
that murderous den. were all secured
that night, aud I subsequently luul the
pleasure or giving uiy evidence against
them, uinl seeing theiu all condemned to
the galleys fur life.
Tlie place nail been fnr some timo su��-
jieett-d iiml the decoy marked. On thut
night a detective had secretly followed
tiie girl inul myself, nud. niter ascertaining wither she had conducted me,
luul hastened to bring a body of genii*
urines to the place. The delay of the
rufii.'ins in their murderous design   luul
II 'en just siildeient to save me. I scarcely need add that I never again volunteered to accompany a distressed damsel on a secret adventure while I remained in Paris.
