Editor "The Advocate":
Tho Electoral Union of Ward V., has
endorsed Alderman Morton, Jas. F.
Ross and A. G. Perry for Aldermen for
the forthcoming civic election As only
two Aldermen can be elected, the question orisos of what uso is tho Union's
endorsement. Iu several wards three
and four—may be more in some wards-
have been endorsed by the Union. Why
not endorse all the candidates, and 1 lieu
the Electoral Union could sny "all our
candidates wero elected."
One. thing thut should not bu allowed
is tho meetings of the Union
beiug announced at church services. A
largo number of people go to church to
worship aud not to hear 11 political
organization boomed.

And onco again, as thoy guzea in
terror too great for words, that piteous cry runs out upon the night uir,
mingled with n thrilling appeal for
There was no timo to dellbcrnte
now on what course to pursue. In a
Hush, throe strong shoulders wore
put against the door; there was a
fierce straining ol herculean muscles,
and the door loll in wilh a crush.
Ill a flash tho three dark forms
sprang ovor It and hud mounted the
stairway three steps at. a time and
reached tho door from whence the
sounds proceeded.   «.
This was locked; nnd again tho
door yielded to their powerful
strength, and in another instant Ihey
hud ieaped over the threshold and
into the room, and there the most
horrible sight met their guze thut
pen over pictured.
For nn instant the detective^, used
ns they wero to thrilling scenes of
horror, stood fairly spell-bound by
tho sight thnt presented itself to
thoir view.
In the middle of the lloor stood a
beautiful girl, her fair white arms
cruelly bound together with steel
bands, and tho blood trickling from
a wound on her forehead.
Tho man who stood beside the girl
wheeled about with an exclamation
of intense amazement ns the door
wns suddenly hurst in nnd the detectives, followed by their companion, sprung into the room.
In an instant iho eyes of tho lias-
tor of Oraystono iTouse fell upon Ernest Lansing, their leader, end be
turned pale to the lips under his
heavy black moustache
"Curso him, it is hei" ho muttered
under' his breath. "I thought 1 f.n-
ishccl him when I dealt him that
blow and     left, him for riond      that
night in the street."
But aloud ho said, in apparent
"May I ask what this intrusion
moans, gciiilemcn?"
"It means that wc are here to res-
ctio the young girl standing by your
side, and to demand why you have
manacled her wrists; to take you
into custody, in fact, sir. and have
an understanding as to tho meaning
of this extraordinary scene."
At tho first glance into the beautiful faco turned toward them, both of
tho detectives hud been grievously
disappointed; the lovely, dark-eyed
creaturo was certainly not the girl of
whom they hatl come In quest.
No, this was not Lc Roy Pierpont's
bride—fair,  golden-haired  Bonnylin.
Basil Sovcrnn, tho dark, handsome
mnn who had been standing over
tho girl, bowed haughtily.
"A very natural curiosity, I should
say," ho returned, with slow gravity. "A cry from a woman's lips
always attracts attention, bnd whin
It is heard by brave men they naturally respond.
"Now, In tbo fust place. I beg
you will look closely at this poor
creature, and you will see why these
•white arms must bo shacklod; and
even though a strict surveillance is
kopt upon her, wc cannot restrain
her from attempting whut you have
just discovered mo tn the act of preventing her from accomplishing—inflicting fatal wounds upon herself."
One gazo Into 1 lie dull, glazing
eyes, and their perception told them
all too plainly the beautiful creaturo was u raving maniac.
"You seo her condition; it is unnecessary for me to repeat she is hopelessly insane. She is my hapless sis-
tor,   gentlemen."
Ho uttered tho He iinhlii.hingly,
nnd his words nnd ton.' carped positive conviction with them.
He did not tell them th.it. the (its
of Insanity whhh darkened this poor
creature's lifo attacked her only in
spells, and those were few aiid far
apart—always brought on by some
inlenso excitement.
"A few words will explain how wo
happened to bo here," Basil Severno
went on courteously.
"To begin wilh, my homo is in a
far-off, isolated village in Western
Virginia, and there, too, is tho homo
of this poor unfortunate, though but
few people there know of h ir existence, fho has always been so closely
confined. A month since she broke
away from her faithful nurse, the woman you see yonder, an I liuidc her
way to Boston. I followed, and wa.
fortunato enough lo run ncross lur
wandering nbout tho streets.
"I boarded tho midnight trnin
with her, and at this station she be-
Canio so unmanageable, to save my

At ihe mention of the name Bonnylin. the poor girl who had been
crouching back in a great armchair,
gazing with wonder and dismay at
the strangers, now sprang forward
with a wild cry on her lips.
"I'or the love of Heaven let me

tho girl, struggling violently. "She

The sentence never was finished.
Basil's hand came down over tho
beautiful, piteous, quivering red
mouth like a grip of steel.
If there had been no witnesses present, he would havo strangled her.
As it was, ho controlled himself by
n, mighty, superhuman clTort.
Picking up the slender, girlish form
the woman Janet seemed incapable of

"Sho was once permitted to read
a book in which the name of tho

on his return. "She repeats with a

"Will you join mo in a glass of

anxious to turn the subject, and divert their thoughts. "You havo come
so far on a fruitless errand, I cannot consent to have you leave without breaking bread with mo."
Nothing loath, Mr. Lansing and the
detective consented', following tho
Master of Oraystono Hall from tho

never heeded Ihe loss of It—sho was
too dazed and bewildered to know

At Inst, Utterly overcome, poor
Bonnylin sunk helplessly down
amidst the snowdrifts, too weak to
take another step forward.
Her head and henrt seemed burning
and her feet and hands frcozfnr.
"Lo Iloy," she niunniircd faintly,
"I am dying, dear; save mc—oh, savo

It was midnight, that weird anil
mystic hour In which the iso'atod
graveyard was apt to bo visited by
ghouls and grave robbers, that tho
old sexton—who hatl acted in tho
dual rjle of grave digger end sexton
for forty years or more—took his
usual round of the cemetery to see
that all  was ns it should 1 e.
H» had traversed half the lonely
path, in the most isolated portion,
when, turning suddenly around an
abrupt curve, he stumbled upon th_
prostruto body of a yoi ng girl lying
prone upon her face in the path, half
btiri-.'l under the drifting mow.
I "The stints preserve us!" exclaimed the old man, In sudden fright.
He quite Loiiov.d the tliimmering,
whito satin robo, that draped the
slender body, ivas tli. habiliments of
t! o grave.
His first thought an he stooped
down was that ho must have surprised a grave robber in his dastardly work, and that tin villain hid
dropped his intended victim and fio.l.
To his inlenso nmazement, he found
that, tho body which his hands touched was warm with thu broath of life.
lt was but, the work of un instant
lo raise :h: Blinder figure In his
arms, ui.d with hlirrird steps ho bore
her quickly to the coinfortablo little
cottarto that nestled at tha foot ol
the hill wliich he called home.
A loud, thut.der'n c knock brought
his old wife, in grny flannel gown
and slippers, fhulfllllg to the do r.
"A pretty time o' night to get
people out o' thoir warm bed to enter to your nonsensical notion o'

lustily, ns sho fumbled at tho lock of

"Will you cease grumbling, Jenny,
nnd open the door?" cried John Anderson, all in a flutter; and his wife
knew by tho tone of his voice that
some extraordinary occurrence had
An instant later the door was
opened, and John Andersen,
tho old sexton, stepped hurriedly across the threehold, bearing
ihe stark, rigid boely draped in white
ill his arms.
There was a terrified shriek from
bis wife.
"Tno saints preserve us!" she cried,
her teeth chattering nnd her eyes
nearly starting from their sockets.

In a few brief words the old sexton explained the situation of affairs—that it was not a corpse, but
living, breathing huninn being he
had found under the snowdrifts
and brought home.
"Come uuick and attend to her,
Jenny," he said, depositing her on
the chlntz-covercd rettce before the
blazing logs in the old-fashioned
fireplace. "Oct some hot water
and mustard and flannel blankets

-recovering from hor fright, Jenny
came    hurriedly    up to the couch.
"Oh, John!" she exclaimed, peering breathlessly over his shoulder
at the beautiful, marblc-whito face
framed in its sheen of golden hair,
upon which tho ruddy glow of
the firelight fell, "she's dressed liko
a bride, or like fine ladies dress
when    they go to a ball."
"Never mini how she's dressed;
got tho flimmrrics off her as.
quick as you can, and get one of
your  own     flannel gowns on hor."
"What beautiful white kid sliprors,
and ull embroidered in seed penris!"
cried Jennie, drawing them off.
"And her stockings are pure silk!"
she added, with all a woman's keen
appreciation of fine things, even in
that critical    moment.
"Doi.'t slop to look at them now,"
sofd John,  sharply.
"Well, get out of the room then!"
exclaimed his wife, equally as
sharp. "I can't take ofif tho 'fllm-
nieries,' as you call 'cm, until you're
out of tho way; what nro you
standing here staring at her for?"
At this rebuke from his better half,
John meekly quitted the room,
and in a very short space ol time,
tho bustling littlo woman had
divested Donnylin of her beautiful
satin bnll.Jrcss, and wrapped hor
in a gray flannel drensfng-gown
and woollen blankets, applying restoratives which sho forced between the whito lips, vigorously
rubbing tho little cold hands and
rigid limbs. Meanwhile admiring
the wondrous beauty of the lovely,
golden-haired, littlo creature, and
wondering with all the curiosity of
a woman, what she could have been
doing in the graveyard at mid-
ght, nnd In the bitter cold, dressed like that, too.
All the rubbing nnd heating   seemed of  littlo avail—no    warmth stolo
nto tho mnrblo   cheeks—no color to
the childish   lips or broad brow.
'Shall we sell- for a doctor, Jenny?" said John, who hnd returned
at length to the room.
"A "doctoi—no!" declared his
wife contemptuously. "Whut good
are doctors, I should like to know?
Don't their patients always fetch
up under your BPada? II my herbs
don't bring her to, nothing can.
Bless me, John you'd have been a
dead mnn a dozen times if you had
depended on tho doctors instead o'
my herb-tea.
"Therol" sho cried triumphantly,
"don't you tee sho's routing to at
last?" and as she spoke the beautiful bluo-bcll eyes flutteicd widu
open, gazing up fn wonder and
childish dismny into tho kindly
faco; but in those solt, velvety
orbs there wns no gleam of reason.
Tho color camo back In a crim-
srn flood to the bcautllul lips as
they opened; but no intelligible
sound enme from Ihotn.
Thoy babbled empty nothings.
"It's many a day before she will
be able to leave her bed," said
the little woman, pityingly. "Shi's
down with the (ever, John. It's
tliii worst kind of brain-fever — I
know the symptoms well."
"For Heaven's sake, then, lrt us
have her taken to the hospital,"
Cried    the sexton, ne.hnst,
"We shall i.'o nothing of the kind,"
retorted his wife. "It would be
the denth of her. Have you for-
gotlen, John, that our own Poor
child was taken ill among strangers
and for want of a mother's rure, was
taken to the hosjiitnl nnd diet)

creature   shan't    go to the hospital,
.iii-u. Ml'.' rlr.-.n slay ri. nt ncre,

No persuasion was of any weight.
When John's wife made up her mind

And while the horrible search went
on. for the fugitive hrl'Je, and the
startling story of th. terrible murder at the ball was in every paper
and on every lip; whin the city ard
country wero flooded with placards
offering largo rewards for the apprehension of the runaway, the
poor, hapless, golden-haired brfde
lay moaning in the ravaros of

unconscious of her pitiful peril.
Perhnjis Heaven had mercifully ordained that the good old sexton and

ihe beautiful, hapless young girll
was whom fate had directed to ills
humble abode to lind shelter in that
thrilling timo of  need.
For days beaut if,il Bonnylin hovered    between life i.i.d death.
The delirious ravings liuit fell
from tho white lips wero startlingly
strange, and pitiful to hear; but
then, sick people have odd hallucinations, Mrs. Anderson well knew.
It was a strange fancy which had
taken possession ol Bonnylin's mind.
She imagined there were stool
bnnds about her white arms—band.,
bin 'ing them so ti'ghtly, so cruelly,
th.,. ihey cut into her tender flesh.
"No one will file them offl" sho
moaned; "no one will lift a band
to savo me! 1 shall never more be
freo from them! Thoy are dragging
me down to my doom! Ohl will
no one help ir,o? I never did such
a horrible, such a cruel deed! The
white angels who saw all, know—
yes, they know! So you must file
tho steel bands off!" sho sobbed,
plteously—so piteously that It would
have drawn tears from any one's
eyes    to have heard her.
"A strange fancy," thought. tho
old sexton's wife, holding tho dainty
littlo trembling hands, so Use velvety roso leaves in hers. " Tho
Lord bless the pretty child! These
beautiful nrms wore made for costly jeweled bracelets; bow absurd to
fancy heavy Ircn bands cutting
into  their     smooth  whiteness."
At tho end of the fourth week
Bonnylin was able to sit up, and-
for the first time since she had
been brought to that lowly homo,
a gleam of consciousness shone in
the blue eyes that gazed up in ns-
tonishment and dismay into the
motherly face binding over her.
Mrs. Anderson hud robed her ln
one of her own blue serge dress-*
es, and although the garment was
twice too largo for that slender, girlish, trim figure, still Bonnylin looked wonderfully _ fair In
lt,    ns sho   did in everything.
"Where am I? nnd who are you?"
she cried, struggling up to a sitting posture, and pushing the long
masses of curling golden hnlr back
from    her lovely face.
"You shall know all about that
presently," said tho sexton's Wife,
forcing a composing draught between her lips. "You must sloop
a little, dearie, aid when you wake
up you shall tell mo who you are,
and where your homo and friends
Before the sentence was finished fho
long, curling lashes drooped heavily, nnd lay against tho rounded
checks; a long breath trailed heavily over the quivering mouth; the
strong potion had taken effect, Bonnylin slept.
All day long, and all tho n'ght
before, a fierce snowstorm had been
Tho hills and vales, as far as the
eye could reach, were-wrapped in a
fleecy "shroud of white, nnd the huge
drifts mndo the roads outside of the
city impassable.
The gray shadow that heralded the approach of night
was fast drawing its mantle over
the short winter afternoon, when
a sleigh, drawn by an iron-gray,
mettlesome horse, dashed swiftly
around the curve (hit led to the
old sexton's humble abode, and a
young man sprung out.
Tying his rosjthjss horse to tho
gate-post and throwing a buffalo-
robe over him, he strode swiftly
up the wooden    walk to tho door.
His imperative knocking soon
brought tho old soxton's wife all in
a    flutter to answer the summons.
"For mercy's sake, John!" she
cried, ditching a glimpse of the
hnndsome, Impatient stranger stand-
fng on the stoop outside—from the
window, "it it isn't young Mr.
Fenton. What eoulel have brought
him here in all this storm, I wonder?"
"Tho best wny to find out is to
open tho door nnd Invito him in,"
retorted her hiisbnnd, dryly. "He's
a right fine young fellow, Is Fenton. He gives mo n bund ome tip
every Rummer for minding the flowers nbout the Fenton vault. Open
tho door for him, Jinny, and bid
him    walk right in."
A moment more nnd Mr. Fenton
Was In tho narrow passage oi t Id >,
and was soon ushered into the cheery
lfttlo sitting-room, where the old
Bcxton sat.
"Oood-aftcrnoon to you, sir," said
John Anderson, placing a chair for

road such a day as this; why"
this is tho Worst storm I have ever
seen hereabouts, nn' I've lived ln
these parts nigh onto forty years."
Fragile Fenton responded heartily
to the old men's greeting in bl3
own cheery way, but declined the
proffered scat b.v the wood fire.
"Thanks, but I haven't a moment
to stay—my borne is outside," he
said. "I came to say to you that
the key of our vault is in the
lock on the inside of the door; I
visited it a month since, and coming out hurriedly tho door sprung

"Oh, never mind about today,"

With a bin n i b ■ il and the space

ihc frosty patie.
This wns tiie sight that mot his
startled ga.'e. A huge, old-fashioned wooden rocker was drawn up
before nn orcn fireplace in what appeared to bo a row bedroom.
In the big rocker, with her faco
turned toward bim in the rod glow
of the firelight, sat a young girl.
Cno startled glance into Ihxt lovely
luce; crowned in ils wealth of curling
golden hair, nn 1 into those velvety
blue-hell eyes—like no other eyes —
and Frank Pent on, trembling with
suppressed excitement, cried out
j     "Heavens! I cannot bo mistaken. I
havo found Fb rp< nt's lost    brldo!—
beautiful,  hapless  little Bonnylin."
How should  he make known      his
| presence  there?    II  she should       by
j chance look up and sen a man's faco
peering in at her, she might   shriek
aloud and swoon.
With determined hards ho     raised

: called soft'y nnel eagerly
"Hush! Do not speak or scream
out; como to tho win low and seo mo
a moment. I mn your friend, and Lo
Hoy's friend. 1 am Frank Fenton!"
The slim, girlish figure in tho big
rocker before the lire did not stir.
"Donnylin—Mrs. Pierpintl" he cancel hurriedly and a little louder.
Bonnylin had b.v chance opened her
eyes an instant, but succumbed immediately to drowsy sleep 'again.
Fmton fit n r up tho sash and
sprung into the room, hurriedly approaching her, culling out. to h_r
not to give way to fright, for ho was
not a robber or midnight intruder,
but her friend.
Ho had barely reached her sido
when his quick car detected approaching footsteps in tlie passageway without. They were coming toward the door; a moment more and
Iho door would be Hung upon.
In a flash Frank Fenton reflected
that ho must not he found there,
for more reasons thnn one; ancl It
flushed across his mind, too, .that ho
must make his escape instantly
through the window again, and the
daring thought occurred to him to
tako Bonnylin with him, and he
acted on the thought without an instant's delay.
Teurin.j off his heavy overcoat, ho
threw it over the girl's head lo prevent the slightest outcry, and at tho
same time to protect her from tho
bitter storm, raised her quickly in
his arms as though sho had been an
infant, and in a trice had cleared the
room nnd leaped through the window
out inlo the darkness and storm of
the night.
Fonton had not made his dailng es-
enpe with Bonnylin in his nrms an
instant too soon, for the door was
hurriedly opened, and Mrs. Anderson, followed by her husband bearing the supper tray in his hind;,
came into the room.
"Here's your slipper, denrio!" sho
exclaimed briskly. "Come, child,
bill to.   I "
The sentence died awny in a gasp—
tho chair before the firo was empty,
so was tho little white bed.
Where was the lovely young stranger?
"Sho's gone, John!" she cried o"t
sharply, her eyes roving around tho
little room in the greatest dismay.
'Iben she noticed thut there wus a
cold draught blowing into the room,
nnd with a shrill cry she pointed to
the open window—it stood wide open,
"Sho must have gone that way!"
she exclaimed. '.'Get tho lntilorn,
quick! and come and look for hor.
Sho must have been soized with ono
of those dclirkius Ills again, and
wandered out into tho snow."
With alacrity the old sexton hurried to obey her commands, und for
an hour or more thoy pushed thoir
Hciirch vigorously, but they found no
trace of her; the foot-prints wero entirely obliterated hy the blinding
in.iw that wns falling and drifting
furiously about in the fierce, blustering gab;.
"I'll go to tho nearest polico station, nnd I don't doubt, but they will
send ou.', a squad of searchers," said
the old man hopefully. "So dry your
eyes, Jenny. The poor, little young
creature sha'n't perish in the snow.
We'll soon find her, never fear."
In a short space of time ho hud
saddled Black Topsy, and was galloping awuy over the snow-blockaded road, all unconsciously upon an
errand more fiitefully cruel than
'Iho timo came when tho old
fell upon his face, crying out

thought, anil which Iffi advocate* und
defends reasonably und seasonably.
But among those holding contrary
views he has hosts of friends, and
none ever henrd him attack any
man on porsonal grounds. It Is
doubtful if any ono hns ever heard
Mr. Scott at any time suy a word in
dispraise or depreciation of. any man
whatsoovor. Envy, luttrod, calumny,
malice, uncharltubleness—these aro
sll utterly foreign to his nature and
disposition. If ho cannot praise, ho
never blames. Whilo Mr. Scott fearlessly criticizes what he considers
wrong policies or courses of conduct,
and ln no sense can be considered a
n:«re acquiescer, he appears to have
the unusual faculty of looking at
things from a detached, Impersonal
point of view, and of not including
the person holding views from which
lie differs    in    tho   condemnation   ho
givco      to    tho    opinion-,     tUuy     hold
lioth in his journalistic and political
debates, he attacks and defends
principles, rather than men. His
method of publi. conviction is based
on no appeal to any consideration of
either person or sentiment but rests
his case wholly on grounds of logic
and reason. He compiles, arranges,
relates, and presents facts and evidence impossible to dispute, points
to the conclusions these facts have
compelled ho himself to reach, and
leads his readers or his auditors, by
the same process of reasoning, to arrive at similar conclusions. But as a
writer and as a speaker, Mr. Scott
indulges in no "frills." Elegance of
expression is in every case subordinated to a businesslike presentation
of facts or issues. After he 'is
through the dullest render or hearer
understands Mr. Scott's position,
knows how he has reached it, and in
all probability is disposed to agree
With him therein.
ilr. Scott is another instance cf a
successful professionnl man hniling
Irom tho farm. He was born in
October, 1807, in London township,
Middlesex county, Out., und Until
tho nge of seventeen had little or no

the homestead, he attended the nearby country school, when, no learned

Loudon Mint.
An oxcollent example of tho dc-
ligihtful art of wasting timo is given
111 The London Clazetle.
'I herein is set out. nt great length
and in solemn, high-flown language
the verdict in the trial ol pyx ol
the London mint, duly attested by
twelve honest goldsmiths.
Tho pyx,, it may be explained, is a
box at the mint wherein is deposited
ono coin from every 15 pounds of
gold and one from every 00 pounds
of silver.
Every year a jury solemnly weighs
these coins and reports on Iheni.
With un ncutencss ol mind that is
remarkable in a British jury, tho
goldsmiths havo this year made several discoveries, r.hich they intend
as a shock tor tho nerves of the already harassed citizen, to whom
money is nlways a trial.
They took 14-1 sovereigns and
twenty-four half sovereigns, weighed
them, and found thom wanting.
"Wc round," isuys the jury portentously, "that the amount of variation from the standard of a weight
specified in the first schedule to tho
Coinage Act, 1H7U, was minus ono-
thousnndlh of an ounce (—.001 oz.)
on the.whole of such coins."
But this enterprising jury were npt
satisfied to rest on their laurels
when they had made this amazing
discovery. Thoy were determined to
probe the matter to the root. They
took eight more sovereigns and throe
half sovereigns, nnd found that their
"millesimal fineness varied from
910.110 to 010,00."
Still indefatigable in search ol
scnndals, tho jury ran through tho
whole gamut of tho silver coins, nnd
were nmply rewarded by the second
remarkable discovery that tho
amount of Variation from tho standard weight was again one-thousaniltb
part of nn ounce.
Worse wns still to come. The un-
fortunuto coins proved, under this
searching cruss-cxnininntion, to vary
from the standard of fineness by
