white carnations from the lapel of my

"She may enjoy herself lifter a fashion,
hut iu order to thrill as she did as a
girl it is necessary to be interested more
jr less iu somebody else."
Still I kept silent, and gathering
jourage from pure lack of opposition she
went on:
"If I were only able to flirt, I could
get along famously. I have often seen
other women add this variety to their
lives, and as far as I could ever find
jut no harm resulted."
"Pray do not abstain from nny such

The poet EmerBou was never credited
with being a handsome mau, tbongb
people who knew him saw in his face
bis beautiful character and forgot to discriminate between bim and hia appearance. Years ago, when the "philosophers" were in camp at Folleusbee pond,
in the Adirondacks, Emerson was one of
tbe party, and bis devotion to his studies and "worthless writin" seemed to
several of the guides a great waste of
time, which might better have been
spent in bunting and fishing.
There was, however, a guide, Steven
Martin, who became perhaps the most
noted that the Adirondacks ever produced, aud who recognized in Emerson
something of his real worth aud upon
-whom the poet made a great impression.
"Steve, "as he was familiarly called,

A great deal of romance hovers round
the means by which the worm's news

with which messages are transmitted

under which they are sometimes transmitted are considered. Tbe Indo-European illne offers a good illustration.
It runs from London to Lowestoft on
the east coast of England. II then dips
under the sen to Emden. on the <'er-
man coast, where it passes right
through Germany to the Russian frontier. From this point the wire passes
by way of Warsaw, Rowno, Odesse,
the Caucasus and Tlflls, to Persia, and
by Tniiris to Teheran, the capital of the
shah's dominions. There It joins the
Indian government line, which runs
from thc Persian capital to Bushlre on
the Persian gulf. Thence the wires run
through Beloochistnn, and complete the
route by connecting Kurrachue, north
India. The operation of this immense
stretch of line, passing through countries of such varying climates and characteristics, is one of much difficulty.
On the snow-swept steppes of Itussia
the wires are often snapped like thread

of tiie Caucasia ii districts, and ihe cunning Innkeepers of Georgia seek to

The Law of Growth.
Dr. Charles Sodjrowiok Mlnot, professor of histology and embryology in
the Harvard medical school, backs up
Ills theory ol' the law of growth by the
results of several years of observations
upon guinea pigs, dogs, rabbits, ferrets,
and other small animals, as well ns
Boston school children. He snys that
In all growing animal organisms, from
the period of birth to death there is n
steady loss of the power lo gi-ow, contrary to the general belief that this loss
begins later in life. The body develops
all the time, but the power tn keep uji
that develoument steadily decreases
after birth, and it decreaees much more
rapidly at first than later in life. A
guinea pig two days old will gain 10
per cent, of its weight In the next two
days. Hut the 'twenty-fifth addition of
10 per cent, to Its weight will 'take the
pig eighty-eight days. The law is the
same with animals and man.

In a communication to the French
Acadouiy of Scieuei-H an explanation is
given of eome of tho hitherto unaccountable phenomena pertaining to gor horns.
It lias beeu found in regard to acoustic
signals, or sirens, that they aro surrounded by u neutral ssono in which tho
sound is not henrd at the sea level—a
zono moro or loss distant, according to
the height of the sireu on the coast—,
and it has a menu widtli ot ubont 8,400
feet. Ou the-nearer side of this zone tho
sound is of course heard perfectly, hut
■whon it is trnvcrsed the sound weakens
gradually until it becomos scarcely por-
ceptiblo, when it increases again, aud,
on tho zono being left behind, tho sound
resumes its full intensity, Experiments
have been made on this liuo with a
steam vessel, by causing it to approach
or recede from a lightship in different
directions and in a straight line. Iu each
course, according to the account published, the sound was deadened almost
completely iu a zone whese central lino
was abont 16,000 feet from the siren.
Bind low and hark with me, my dear,
How the winds sirIiI
A voico ia on thcai that I fear—
It brings thn bygone daya so near,
Like a soul's cry.
Thoso whom wn bury out of sipht,
How slill they lid
Beyond the reaches of the light,
Outside the realm of day and night—
Do they not diet
Shall wo unbar tho long closed door,
You, dear, or l't
Could lovo he what it wns before
If we should call them back once moro
And they reply?
Would they fife's largess claim agalnf
They draw too nighV
O winds, be still!   Yuu shall not pnill
My heart, with that long hushed refrain
As you sweep by.
Tho (load have had their shining day—
, Why should they try
To listen to the words we kii.v,
To breathe their blight upon our May?
Yet the winds sigh.

Bnt He Is A l-heiiiiineiiiil Artist In the Use
uf till) l.asli.
A decided sensation has beeu created
iu Vienna byu mau who probably stands
alone iu tho world in his particular liuo
of performance. This gentleman's mime
is Piskslug, and he is an Austro-Hun-
gariun by birth. Ho is an expert, or,
rather, a phenomenal artist, in the use
of the whip.
The first thing he does is to take a
long lashed, stout handled whip in each
hand, and, with orchestral accompaniment, proceed to crack or snap them at
a terrific rate. The sound made by his
whips iu this manner is graduated from
a noise like a rifle report to the soft click
of a billiard ball. It makes a curious sort
of music aud serves to show how he
can regnlute the force of each stroke.
More interest, however, is evinced
when he seizes a vicious looking whip
with au abnormally long lash. It is provided witli a very heavy handle of medium leugth. This is his favorite toy, and
what ho can do with it is really wonderful. He first gives an idea of what
fearful force thero lies iu a whip lash in
tho bauds of au expert.
A large frame, over which iu stretched
a calf or sheep skin, is brought on the
stage. This is marked with dots of red
paint. The man with the whip steps up,
and, swinging the lush round his bead,
lets Hy at the calfskin. With every blow
he uctnally pulls a piece right out from
the leather, leaving a clean cut hole.
These pieces ure distributed amoug
the audience to show that there is no
trickery ubuut the performance. After
this he takes a frame with three shelves.
Ou these there are a dozen or more of
medium sized apples lyiug very close together and provided with large numbers.
Any ono iu the audience may designate
whicli apple ho wishes struck, and the
unerring lash snatches it out like a flash.
A still more difficult feat is tho snapping of coins from a narrow necked
bottle. A piece of silver abont tho size
of half a crowu is put over tho cork of
tho bottle, which stuuds ou the edge of
a table. Tho whip artist, without appearing to tako any sort of aim, sends
tho long lash whizzing through the air
and picks off the coin without jarring
the bottle, much less breaking it.—Vienna Letter.

When  Mr.  I.eicbl,  of  the Pnepcke-

Jock, a Scotch collie he Utile thought
the dog would pay for Itself a hundred

had it not been for the sagacity of Jock

Jock Is four years old and Is the
nightly companion of Watchman
Arndt. The dog discovered the Ore
and by burking attracted the attention of the watchman. When his work
of rescue was complete he took up a
position by the yard gate, and neither
streams of water nor showers of sparks
would dislodge hlui from his place.

She Didn't Want Them to Fight.
I was going along a bridle path in

man and a young woman talking earnestly:
"I dou't want yo'all to tout," said
tho girl.
"But yo' done promised to marry the

"I dou't keor. I didn't think no

How Maud llilln. Grow.
A sand hill is not "mado" so much as
plauted. Wherever a patch of "marrum
grass" takes root, there tho sand blown
from the great bank gathers round it.
As tho sand spreads, the grass grows
through it, until the hard dry blades
form the nucleus of thousands of tons of
"hills." Near Holkham bay there lay
not 40 years ago a wet "lake" inside
tho high sand. Thero the "gunners"
used to hide for curlew, digging holes
and filling them with "marrum grass"
to make them dry aud comfortable.
This grans took rout, the sand gathered
rouud, and where the "hike" lay is now
a tumultuous muss of rounded hillocks,
rising 20 feet above high water level—
built by the "marrum grass" from the
surplus driftiugs of the mighty sand.—
Loudon Spectator.
In this beautiful season of flowering
green, when the air is balmy and lhe sunlight golden, it seems a pity that anything
should enter into this Eden of ours to mar
its pleasures and blight its joy, but so it is
ordained; man has his heritage, and it is
even doubtlul—if all of life were a scene of
pleasure—whether we could possibly enjoy
it. The birds come anil sing, and the birds
sing and go. Rheumatism comes also. It
comes from exposure to tbe dampness of
tne nights and mornings, to the sudden
change of temperature, and it certainly
goes, as thousands know, by the prompt
use of St. Jacobs Oil, which is a complete
and perfect cure. It is well, therefore,
while, we enjoy all these seasonable delights, not to he without this great remedy
for pain, and to have it ready, more because ne are the mure liable at this season
than any other to sutler from such attacks.

It i.s often difficult to convince people their blood is impure, until dreadful carbuncles, abscesses, boils, scrofula or salt rheum, are painful proof of
the fact. It is wisdom now, or whenever there is any indication of

prevent such eruptions and Buffering.
"I had a dreadful carbuncle abscess,

abscess broke, the pains were terrible, and

They should use these precious March
d iys for getting strong and well by
taking Paine's celery compound—tbe
greatest of all spring remedies.
Miss Klsie M. Browji of 2 Leeds Kt.,
Dorchester, Mass., whose picture is
giveu above, wrote the oth of this
mouth as follows:
"Four or five years ago. 1 suffered
with dreadful paius in my back (owing
to my kidneys), so much so that night
after night I could not close my eyes,
and what few hours sleep I did get. I
could be beard moaning and tossiug,
showing that even iu my sleep, I
suffered pain.    At times I would have
my limb down straight, as there would!
be a drawing and trembling of tha
cords. Besides such torture, 1 began
to blout a great deal.
"After Buffering for some time, **
friend advised nie to try Paine's celery
ooinpouud. I can truthfully say that
after using four bottles I was cured;
not helped, but cured."
If you have any doubt at all these
spring days about your health—if neuralgic twinges, kidney troubles, dizzy-
spells, indigestion or heart palpitation
snow themselves,don't wait for plainer
warnings. Make a clean sweep of all
these ailments from the system.
It is easiest to do this uow, as spring
is approaching. Take Paine's celery
oompound wlieu the system is most responsive to its cleansing, strengthening iuflueuee.
An improved appetite, sound diges-
more pain than usual over my left j tion, uninterrupted sleep, and an ener-
hip,-- and wheu waking in the morning ■ getie condition, are the result of taking
it would be all I oould do to stretch Paiue's celery compound.

Dispatches from Ottawa indicate;
that the Tupper ministry will tender their resignation to the Governor-General as soon as some necessary routine business can be disposed of. This business will only
take a few days, so that early next

in the opinion of prominent Liberals, will be about as follows:

The monarch of Canadian dailies
and redoubtable champion of Liberalism, the Toronto Globe, in the
course of an editorial on the result,
It has for some time been apparent to
every thoughtful man that the Conservative party had been Buffering a decline, that in some way it had (alien under the control of men who did not by
any means represent ils best elements,
and that continued retention of power
by its leaders could only bring discredit
to the party, as well as loss and danger '
to the country at large. With an immense debt ami annual interest to pay, |
the Government proposed to plunge the
nation into reckless expenditure on new
projects to get into power. Many things
remain to be done, and the people must
have laws to guarantee that future eleu-l
tions shall fairly express the will of the
people. Retrenchment of expenditure
and revision of llie tariff must be attended to, while the school question remains to be settled by investigation and
conciliation. We hope that these results
may he achieved ; we hope that the great
West will be developed as rapidly as ils
splendid resources deserve; we hope that
from this day may be dated a new era of
prosperity ami of honor for Canada.
Governments and parliaments may do
much toward that end, lint our main
confidence is in the intelligence, the enterprise and the patriotism-of the people of Canada.
In testimony of the fact that the J
policy of the late unluniented regime was responsible in u great
measure for the large exodus of
Canadians to the United States and
elsewhere, we reproduce a letter from
one of the-'exodustera" now residing
across the line written tn the head
of an important business corporation in Ontario previous to election:
I have to-day received from yon llu*
very  interesting   news   that   the  Hon.
Oliver Mowut has joined the Hon. Wi!- j
fred Laurier in the Dominion elections.
This is certainly good news for me.    1
feel like taking the next train forToron- i
to and  throwing myself  into the campaign.    I  have not hud  un opportunity
to follow tbe politics of Canada for some
time, hut it would seem to me that bun-!
rier and Mowat combined would be able
to lead the  Liberal  party to victory.    II
consider Laurier and Mowat the strongest politic ul  team  that has ever pulled
together in Canada,   I sincerely trust
that the elections will be it  their fnvor. j
Thousands of the best citizens of Canada
will  be glad  to return  to their native
homes as soon as it is an assured fact
that the affairs of the Dominion are in
the hands of a Liberal Government,
Sir Oliver Mowat is jubilant over
the success of the Liberal party, but
considers that Ontario should have
done better. Sir Oliver will not
resign the premiership of Ontario
until Sir Charles Tupper steps
down and out nnd Hon. Mr. Laurier
steps-up and in and sends for him;
to join his cabinet as a senator and
Minister of Justice. Hon. A. S.
Hardy, the commissioner of crown
lands, wili succeed him as head of
the Ontario government.
Accepting for the purposes of calculation the last report from each
of the doubtful constituencies as the
actual result, and giving the Liberals credit for a win in Cbicoutimi
(last time Conservative hy ;!8),
where the election takes place next
Tuesday, the Colonist figures the
new parliament as follows according to political classitication: Liberal, 1 lfi; Conservative, 1)0; Patron,
4; McCarthyite, 8; total, 213..
Parliament stands summoned to
meet on July 16th, but it will be

This classifies all the anti-remedial
Conservatives with the Tupper party,
even including John Ross Robertson of
East Toronto and Clarke Wallace of
West York. The Independents arc the
McCarthyites aud Patrons, who will
vote with Mr. Laurier. His majority
may be therefore set down al 45.
There are two districts not included in
Ihis table, namely, Algoma and Chieou-
timi. I'he former has not yd been
heard from, and the other election will
uot be held until the 80th.

Ottawa, June 24.—The feeling of enthusiasm among the Liberals here today is intense over the great victory of
yesterday. There is particular rejoicing
over the failure of Sir Charles Tupper
to purchase the province of Quebec by
his bargain with llie bishops. Not only
does Quebec send almost a solid major,
ity for Laurier, but thc majorities in
each case arc overwhelming, while the
Conservatives are elected by small majorities.
The greatest surprise for the Ottawa
people was for Winnipeg to declare for
coercion. A lot of money has changed
hands on this account. Hon. Joseph
.Martin bad many warm friends in Ottawa, his old home. The province, on
the whole, has done well, and a solid
Liberal representation from the Northwest is particularly gratifying.
British Columbia has done remarkably
well in sending four Liberals, the first
time since confederation that the ''ring"
lias been broken in the Pacific province.
Sir Charles Tupper reached his office
about eleven o'clock to-day. He looked
very much dejected, nnd is badly broken
down, lt is not known yet whether he
will resign Immediately or hang on for a
few weeks, but it is likely that he will
resign before parliament meets. He
had nothing to say for publication on
this matter to independent or opposition
Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney of
British Columbia, who has been here
fo" lhe cr.ll plligll, und who has ben

San. Frcneisc-o, .lune 25.—Tho report
of flic Southern Pncilic company fur the
year ending December 31, 1800, was issued to-Uay. 'lhe report shows that 'lie
net earnings per mile of the road have
decreased gradually from $5,768.07 in
1S72 to $2,21)6.02 in 1805. Tho decrease
ill the no. earnings is explained by the
decrease in the receipts per ton, all of
which is attributed to reduced [ifeiglu
rates. The figures show that the traffic
has Increased and the net earnings at
the same time have decreased.
President C, P. Huntington in his annual reporl, which forms a preface to
the volume, has the following to say on
the subject of rates:
'•The feeling, almost nn epidemic, passing from eutte to state, under whose m-
fluciicc people have lixed or endeavored
to lix the rates of fares and freights
which they should themselves pay for
the service gi en, and the benefits d ■-
rived by those who use the rnilroartF,
without regard to the rights of those
who create or own the properties, is disappearing. A better appreciation ol' lie
mutuality of interest bei ween tho pun-
lie nml the railroads, and a higher sense
of juslice, has been' reached in most ot
the states, mul it is reasonable to assume that a similar 'tale of Hie public
mind will booh obtain in tin- few states
in whicli attacks are still being nintlu
against corporate property, nnd more
particularly railroads."

Remarks   That Have   lleeu Made   Aronntl
the Table.
A good story is told of u lawyer in
Chicago who considered himself a great
authority on whist, He wrote a hook on
the subject, and sent it. to u famous Milwaukee player fur his opinion of it. Iu
about » week tho book was returned to
him, with tho following lettor:
My Oka a Bra—Your favor of tho — Inst.,
accompanied byyour boolc, was duly received.
S havo read it very carefully. It seenia to bo
every good game, but I don't think it is as
pood a gome an whist.   Stnceroly yours.
It is no unusual thing to hear a player at whist remark, after lining berated
by his partner fur very bud playing,
"Well, I play whist for pleasure." Hu
dues not stop to think that lie gives his
.partner anything but. "pleasure," Sueh
players cause their partners many " un
manvais quart d'beui'o." It might be
a great "pleasure" for n novice to play
a duet on the piano witli Paderewski.
One can readily imagine how muoh
"pleasure" Paderewski would find in
the performance. If a man wants to
play whist, lie should study the books
and familiarize himself with thom before inflicting his play on a partner who
knows anything of the game, or else demote his great mind to douiinos.
It is related of ono of these gentry
that, lifter a hand at whist, his partner
asked him, "Why in thunder didn't yon
Irmup that queen of clubs?" He naively replied, "Why, I only had one little
trump." Sometimes, as in this case, the
humor—unknown to the perpetrator—
carries oft' tho bad feeling engendered
by his horrid mistakes and ignoranoe.
It is so easy, if one would devote a little timo and ordinary intelligence to
the study of the game, to learu to play
a fairly good game of whist.
Four players started a game of whist
not long since, a noted wit being one of
them. Ho wus dealing and made u misdeal. Ho dropped his cards and burst
into langhter. "That reminds me," said
he, "of my dear old friend, Judge Peck-
hum, father of the present judge. He
was a great whist player uf Ihe 'old
school' and had scant patience with a
poor player. 1 was passing the cardroom
one day and nut one of Ihe poorest players iu the club coming out. 'Have you
lieeu playing whist ?'I asked. 'Ves,'said
he. 'Who was your partner?' 'Judge
Peokham,' ho replied. 'Did he pitch
into yon pretty strong?' 'No, indeed.
He only made ono remark. I wus dealing and made a misdeal. The judge
suid, "Why, yon fool, you don't even
know how to deal!'' This is the only
remark he made during tho entire
gauic.' "—Washington Star.
An Australian   Mammal That   Is u Whole
Menagerie lu Itself.
Tho so called i'.ebra wolf of Australia
is also called lho native tiger; but,
strange to sny, il is not even a cousin to
cobra,wolf or tiger, belonging tu the
same family as the kangaroo, thu slow
and gentle wombat and the sly old opossum—all those animals that carry their
babies in their pockets.
The eyes, which arc large, are furnished witli a membrane, like the eyes of
owls, and this is culled thn uiotitating
meruhrnne. This is almost continually
moving iu the daytime, as the eyes ure
exposed to more or less of sunshine.
Without this membrane the amount of
light admitted through the large pupil
would puzzle tho zebra wolf,
Tho general color of the. somewhat
short woolly fur is grayish brown,a little
inclined to yellowish. Across this ground
color the black bunds show up sharp
nml clear. These stripes are usually 14
in number, beginning just, back of the
shoulders, where (hey mo narrowest,
and growing broader und longer back of
thu huunehes. The skins are iii demand
for lap robes ami rugs, which gives an
added reason for hunting the wearers.
Two zebi a wolves wero taken to tbo
ecological gardens in London, where
they flourished and raised a family.
When they came, it was ilniujibi Great
Britain would be too cold for them,
but there seems to be no reason why
they should not thrive even ill Canada,
as they huvo been known to live on the
mountains of Tasmania, 8,600 feet
above the sen level, where tbe ground is
aonietiines covered with snow for many
Weeks and frosts aro severe.
Oo you wonder that his uuuio is
slightly mixed? The marvel is that, he
is not named menagerie and done with
it, for with his dislike face and short
wolf ears, eyes like an owl, zebra stripes
and a pouch like a kangaroo, bis mixed
pickle bcastship could answer to almost
any name you might wish to call him.
When he becomes extinct, wo can truly
say we ne'er shall see his like again.—
Bt Louis Globe-Democrat.
Miss Stone One of This Seasou's Additions

One of the fairest debutantes in Washington society is Miss Elizabeth Moor-
head Stone, the youngest daughter of
Congressman Charles W. Stone of Pennsylvania. Miss Stone was recently introduced into society at a pleasant tea
given at hor mother's house in the capital. She is a charming girl, rather tall
and very pretty. Her eyes and hair are

most charming iu a young girl, Miss
Elizabeth has finished her education at

or of a voice of singular sweetness that
is well trained in vocal music and elocution. Tbe latter is her favorite study,
and her guod talent is a source of muoh |
enjoyment to her young friends. Miss |
Stone is oue of the very few youug ladies wlio can attempt Walteau effects.

Jack Ormiston is still alive to tell
(Some of the most wonderful talcs that
ore heard in the Adirondacks. Jack has
been a guide for somo !10 years, ever
sinco ho has been big enough to carry a

of small, blinking black eyes do most of

properly aroused he can spin a tale at
the camp lire that will startle thu
screech owls and frighten the wailing
loous down on the lake shore.
"Yer'veheerd soino of tho fellers say,

Wo assured him that wo never had,
and it was strictly true, becanso he had
told us a dozen or more times hirnself.

point. Fact is, the great point wuz the
too end of these boots. I wnz cumin

beerd a rustling overhead iu a tall pine.
Golly, when I looked up, kinder quick,
sideways, for I feerd somethin wuz goin
ter drop, I see u mighty big bear comin
along one of tho limbs towur-- the trunk.
"He started ter como dowu the trunk

mind none too soon. Tiie boar warn't
half way dowu tho tree when I rushed
at him, not ltnowin what I would do ter

I looked around fcr a club, but none
come in sight, bo when I got ter the
foot of the tree there wnrn't uothin but
one thing ter do, I just hauled olf and
kicked thnt hoar.
"It wuz the first experiments of tho
kind I ever beerd of, and hy gush it
bent anything I over see. The bear clawed hard inter the bark and snapped at
me. Ho was easiu up a hit wilh his
nails when I swung him another and
another. I yelled for Jim and swung
again. I yelled six times, kickin between every yell. Then Jim answered,
and I kept up yellin and kickin, first
with one boot and then tho other. Tho
bear didn't drop an inch. Just ns lie
eased up a liitlo bit I swung again.
Gosh! It seemed as if Jim wuz takin
his timo comin along that trail. Just as
I swung tho forty-ninth kick Jim conic
in sight. I dropped flat on my hack.
Jim pupped line inter (he hear, and it
flopped over on ter me. Jim wuz the

The    Rapier,    Cutlass,    Saber,    Yataghan,
Si:i,niter and Claymore.
The rapier was iu general use on the
continent some years before it made its
appearance in England, where, it must
be said, it was received with scorn und
ridicule, us being much too effeminate a
weapon for any self respecting sou of
Mars to trifle with. The cavaliers of
France, Spain and Italy, however, were
adept.s in tbe intricate science of sword
play, and used it with a fatal subtlety.
The cutlass, whicli we read abont in
Captain Marryatt's stirring tales, and
in tho thrilling stories of tho exploits of
pirates on the Spanish Main, was short
and rather broad and flat in tho blade,
which had an exceedingly sharp double
edge. The yataghan and scimiter bear
tho evidence of their oriental origin in
their curved blados, and suggest the ancestry of the saber. Tho saber is tho
most important cutting imploiuent of
modern armies. It is distinguished from
the sword proper by the single edged
blade, whicli attains its greatest, thickness at the back, and is grimly suggestive of the dire effects of u swinging cavalry charge. Tho sobiavone—a notable
sword of the Italian soldiery—carried a
conspicuous guard, extending from the
quillons to tho pommel, formed of a
lattice work of metal bands that resembled the plaiting of osiers in a basket.
This basket liilted sword, as it was called, was so closely allied to the claymore
of the Scotch Highlanders that thoy
have frequently been mistaken one for
tiie other.
The glorious epoch of the sword, however, wus reached in tbe sixteenth century. Great manual skill and a thorough
training in tho arts were united in a
marked degree iu the artisans of this
period, and gave to the products of the
industrial arts a permanent value and
beauty. In the shops of the metal workers this proficiency reached a rare excellence. War was the main occupation of
kings, aud civil and military pageants
were the favorite pastime of royalty.
Tho armorers, consequently, were in
coustaut demand, and were untiring in
their efforts to produce costly, brilliant
arms und coats of mail.
Great artists devoted all the resources
of their genius to the enrichment of flic
sword. No metal was too precious, no
jewel tou rare, no fancy too ingenious
for its decoration. Hilts were iucmsted
With gems, set with medallions, carved,
embossed, inlaid ; scabbards of Spanish
leather or Genoese velvet were wrought
with gold and silver embroidery;blades
of the finest steel were polished to a
dazzling luster and engraved with inscriptions and arabesques. Every artifice
tbut a fertile imagination could devise
and cunning skill carry out was lavished
upon the decoration of the beloved
weapon.—Mary Stuart MoKiuney iu St.
A Typewritten Love Letter.
Fancy the enormity of sending a typo-
written love letter, a crime of which
the nineteenth century lover is often
guilty. One cannot picture even a now
woman caring for such a letter; ouo
cannot imagine even i ho most sentimental maiden rending and rereading such
a missive, much less preserving it among
her treasures. Its proper placo is tbe
Wastebasket, to which, he sure, it is
promptly consigned.
And fancy, too, the enormity of dictating a love letter—or, worse still, tbo
stenographer's train of thought as she
takes dowu the burning words — uud
later the ardor of tho sighing swain as
he glances over the blue lettered siieot

Object is to Maintain Waves-— Bach win
Support the Other During; Lockouts nr
Strikes tr,,000 Working!,,in Are Concerned—Gigantic Labor Combine.
One of the most formidable combinations of labor ever formed has been practically effected in Pittsburg by the organized glass trades. Plans for an alliance between the three great, labor un-
ious iu the glass industry have been
agreed to which will involve the welfare of 75,000 workingmeu in the United States aud Canada. A fund of several million dollars is to bo raised by
per capita tax within the next few years
by the Aniorioan Flint Glass Workers'
union, Window Glass Workers' association and the Glass Bottle Blowers' association of tho United States and Canada.
This fund will bo used to support the
members of tho organizations named in
every coutost with the manufacturers'
combinations which may arise in the
future. The fiuuucial strength of all
will bo put ut tbe back of any ouo of
them which may become involved in
strikes or lookouts. In addition, tbe
big defense funds which each union
now has will bo increased, aud it is proposed that iu tbe eveut that it is necessary at any time to figlit capital the
glass workers will fight with capital.
In taking this course the representatives of the glass workers' unions, who
are recognized as the most conservative
in the labor movement, disavow any
intention to precipitate trouble with
employers. The aim will be to raise a
defense fund of such proportions ns will
restrain employers from seeking conflicts with the unions, to maintain tho
rights of the workers uud to prevent
ruinous competitions among manufacturers.
All threo organizations have songht
for many years to prevent overproduction by limiting production per day to
a certain amount to each man employed.
This has worked successfully for many
years, and the employers havo been
enabled to pay fair wages.
The combination to raise this big
fund was decided upon at u conference
of tho national officers of the throe unions. President W. J. Smith nnd Secretary John Kimzlor represented tha
American Flint Glass Workers' union,
President Simon Burns, the Window
Glass Workers' association, und President John D. Troth and Vice President
D. A. Hayes, tho Bottle Blowers' association.
The officials met at the headquarters
of tbo A. F. G. W. U., excelsior building. The plan has been under consideration for several months and wns unanimously agreed to. It will bo submitted
to a vote of the members of the different unions and will nndoubtedly he
adopted, as the glass workers have been
looking to this eud for several years.
Tho alliance, ns explained by President Smith, will not involve tho autonomy of the unions. Each will look after
its own trade affairs, as heretofore,
maintaining separate organizations und
olliccrs and making its own wage agreements. The fund will bo in charge of
trustees elected hy the unions and will
be expended as directed by the organizations contributing'.
Mr. Smith would not state lhe amount
of the proposed per capital tax before
the proposition is laid beforo tho members, hut said that assessments would
bo mado regularly upon tho membership
of tho unions. About $50,000 per month
can bo raised easily among lho glass
workors. For two years and sis mouths
tbo members of the A. F. G. W. U.
havo paid an assessment of $5 per week
to maintain a strike. Ten per cent of
tho earnings of tbo members of the
Window Glass Workers' association is
contributed to its treasury.   *
The unions havo resolved upon an
aggressive campaign to unionize every
glass factory in the United States and
Canada. The organization will be opened to all skilled glass workers. It is
probable also that tho organized unskilled workers will be included in tho alliance upon tho same terms as tbe big
Tho conference docided to issuu a circular to all union glass workers iu tho

He had talked to the storekeeper in
his own way, fallen into his drawling
idiom as though to the manner born. Not.
in such fashion would he greet Mrs.
Townley. To say the truth, he was
rather familiar with that lady, for her
house had sheltered the syndicate's metallurgist whoso report had opened so
wido the purso strings of bis employers.
Naturally Hawkins had seen a good
deal of him and of his landlady, so much
indeed that he wondered not a little how
ho had ever allowed himself to overlook
her close relationship to Dare. It was
close, notwithstanding Dare's mother
was but a half sister. Mrs. Townlcy
was, after her grandfather, tho girl's
nearest relative and certainly ought to
rank as her most proper guardian.
Mrs. Townlcy in her own person proper was oue of those women who just,
miss being beautiful, brilliant, fascinating, and go through life soured with the
knowledge of tho narrowness of their
failure. She was tall, rather thin, with
big, brilliant eyes that lacked only color
to bo magnificent, liuo palo skin and
well cut features. She held herself well,
too uprightly indeed for grace. Thero
was something wooden in her straight,
unyielding figure. Sho hnd mado an
ambitious marriage, to find in six
months her husband's forhuio tako
wings. If thereafter life wont rather ill
with the couple, who could wonder? In
fact, jars were inevitable. But they wero
decorously hidden till death mado an end
of them. Even then Mrs. Towuloy put
ou crape and bombazine as became a
grieving widow, though from tho minute
breath left her husband's body her soul
had been chanting, "Free, freol"
Hawkins found her alone, and the two
talked long and low together. It was almost dusk when ho camo out upon tho
long front piazza and looked about him
at thc evidences of former grandeur and
present decay. Mrs. Townley's glanco
followed his with a sort of acid quickness. Her lip curled faintly as sho said,
still in a hushed voice:
"I will do my best indeed. lean think
of nothing I would not do to change all
this. And I think wo shall succeed. Fato
even must bo tired of making me its
"H we do, nndl have no sort of doubt
of it, your dark days are over for good
and always," Hawkins said, pressing her
hand in farewell. "Besides it's really
your d ty. You certainly owo so much
to your sister's child."
"Oh, no doubt I" Mrs. Townley snid,
her lip curling still more, "though 1
fear, Mr. Hawkins, neither of ns would
seo it that way if our virtue was to bo
its own solo reward."
***** *
Notwithstanding tho sneer, Mrs.
Townley had neither remorse nor compunction over lur bargain. Sho was long
past all that. Early next morning tho
rusty family carriage, whose shabbiness
so galled her pride that for five years it
bad been left unused, took her to Ridge-
ley, where Major Overton received her
witli surprise as unfeigned an his courtesy. Dare met her with no show of affection, yet with a very lively interest. Visitors of any sort wero in tbo nature of
events at Ridgoley—visitors, that is,
whom it fell to her lot to entertain. Most
comers wero mon, whom she saw, if at all,
only at table, and witli whom sho rarely
exchanged more than tho briefest salutation. Iu truth, the girl had grown up in
mammy's Bovero chargo an uncloistered
nun, save indeed that sho fed mind and
heart with poems and romances in tho
garret library, whioh was her chief resource when wind and weather Bhut her
away from outdoors.
Mrs. Townloy did not liout about tho
bush. Sho said simply to Major Overton:
"I have como for Daro. Sho is a woman now and needs womanly counsel.
Let mo keep her for six months. There
uro many things I would liko to touch
my only sister's only child."
"Sho knows already those most essential—truth und courage and honor and
what is duo her name," tho old man
said proudly. "I can trust her, Melissa,
fully, entirely. I wish I wero us certain
that I might trust yon.''
Mrs. Townley looked him full in tho
eyos and said in her ovouost tono:
"Major, if I tried \-fith all my might,
I could nover do Daro the wrong you
did when you flung away fortuno for
tho sake of pride."

noted her growing up or bis own whitening hair.
It had come ns a shock to him to find
her a woman loved, asked in marriage
of his enemy and showing that she know
what was due her race. Ho could uot
think of that day without n glow ur lho
heart. She hud shown his sph-il nu less
than his blood, this unregarded, nuwel*
como child, and ho begun to love her, to
think pitifully forward as to what must
be her portion.
If sho could marry, marry us became
her station, uot just yet, of course, but
in two or three years. To do that she
must kuow somewhat of tho ways, the
lives of other women of the big world
outside that never camo near her homo.
She might go with her aunt for a little
space. Later be would tako her to tho
capital, where it was likely he would
need to spend a largo part of the winter,
and where a few faithful friends would
make ber welcome for bis sake.
So, by tbo workings of most diverse
causes, Dare was domiciled at Exeter,
there to stay for the next threo months.
Though tho outsido was a picture of
weather beaten desolation, the insido
seemed to Dare's homo bred eye fine
enough for a palace, for tho big square
drawing room was hung witli silk, and
all tho floors wero laid with thick Persian carpets in dull delicious hues. Faded
damask, silk lined, hung at tho windows over carefully mended laco draperies, all and several mementos of tho refurbishing wherewith Eton Townley
had made ready for his bride.
Most of the rooms overran with heavy
carved mahogany, but Dare's especial
domain was free of its gloomy splendor.
It was cool and white nnd dainty, with
a bare, polished floor and a smother of
fresh dimity over everything—in fact,
so nearly the counterpart of her own
room at Ridgoley that she felt at ouco
at home.
Sho nodded pertly to her imago in the
odd little swinging mirror, saying, with
head aside and uplifted finger:
"Miss Overton, yon must mind yonr
p's and q's. If you disgrace your Aunt
Mel, you'll bo sent home tomorrow, and
you know you want to seo a heap moro

ribbon and locket even, but bo content
with the roses for your hair and your
breast and don't cry for gauds that aro
beyond you.''
A tap at the door was followed by
Mrs. Townley's entrance, with rather
an anxious brow.
"I wondered whom you conld be talking to. I heard you outside," she said,
with a clearing countenance, going up
to the smiling young figure that fronted
hor so full of eager pleasure.
"Oh, just to myself! I must talk sometimes, you sec, and as 1 had nobody hut

over und asked:
"Dare, who taught yon to dress?"
"Tho flowers, if I know how," Daro
smiled.    "Really, Aunt Me!, do I look

Miss Krelger's Wonderful Experience at

with hated breath, expecting every moment to lie dashed to pieces on tbo
ground below.
There is also no more dangerous
nightmare than this; indeed, it may
often prove fatal. Physicians of high
standing declare thut if the dreamer
fails to walin up at tho crilical moment,
just before, in imagination, he reaches
the ground, he will actually die, Wn
remember those nightmare sensations,
and can describe them vividly. It is seldom that a person actually falls from a
lofty position in real life, however, und
lives to describo tbe sensations attending it.
Such u person is Miss Lillian Kreiger
of Troy, N. Y., whose escape during
tho fire in Stetheimer's collar shop the
other day, where liiO girls were near to
death, wus most remarkable and sensational. Sho fell from a sixth story window and received no injury savo a
sprained ankle. Miss Kreiger is of German descent, uud possesses much of the
strong power of self control which is a
characteristic of her race.
"When the fire broke out," sho said,
"I mounted a window sill on the sixth
floor, thinking that the lire would either
be put out speedily or that I would hn
taken down on a firo escape. While I
sat thero I saw threo women fall, but 1
did uot lose my presence of mind. Finally the smoke camo pouriug through
tbe open window, almost suffocating
mo, and I turned und attempted to catch
hold of a wooden sign whicli wus immediately under the window.
"As I lowered myself nud attempted
to grasp tho sign I missed my hold on
tho ico covered wood and went tumbling
in spnee. Oh. will 1 ever forget it I"
sho exclnimed, closing her eyos and
shuddering. "I did not even scream. I
could not. I was choking. I was sure
that I was going to my death, but I did
not lose consciousness, not oven for a
second. My mind worked clearly; indeed, never before in my life bad I
thought so rapidly. My eyes must havo
been closed.
"I was of the opinion that I had remained in a perpendicular position during tho entire fall, and was surprised to
learu from persons who saw me thut I
bad turned completely ovor several
times. When I struck the awning, I
thought, 'Well, this isu't tho sidewalk,'
and when I slid off the awning into tho
firemen's net, I wus surprised Ihat any
one should ask mo if I was hurt. All
during my awful descent, which seemed
to take many minutes, I had felt that I
would surely bo killed when I struck,
uud I wonder that this terror did not
continue after I lit ill tho net. But it
wns dispelled instantly.
"Looking around for my hat and
cont, which I had thrown from the wiu-
dow, I saw them suspended from a sign
ou which they hud caught and calmly

A New Invention For Carrying Sound Without Wires.
When walking through the laboratory
of the Volta bureau with Dr. A. Graham
Bell, the inventor of the telephone, I
picii'd up ou one of the shelves a piece
of pine board about half an inch thick
and eight inohes square. Out of the ceu-
Icr of it extended a speaking tube,
which apparently rested against a thill
disk of bright metal sunk into tho opposite side. This metal was like a silver
mirror, and was about as large uruuud
as the bottom of a tumbler. I asked Dr.
Bell what it wns, und he told me that
it was a perfected instrument whose
original construction enabled him to
project his voice from ono point to another through the medium of a sunbeam.
It enabled him, in otlier words, tu send
sounds along a ray of light without the
aid of an electric wire. Hu took the instrument und put the tuhetohis mouth,
holding the mirror so that it catighl the
sun and cast a littlo shadow disk of
light on tiio opposite wull. Then by
breathing slightly he made this shadow
increase and dimiuisb, and assume various shapes by thu action of his breath
against the mirror diaphragm.
"That shows you," said lie, "how
tlic action of tho diaphragm is carried
along the ray. Now, if yon will put a
little bottle with some soot in it where
that shadow is on the wall, and speak
into the tube, you will find that the
sound will travel along that ray of
l'ght, and by having a receiver connected with tho bottle ouo would be able to
hour what you are saying. We have
spoken by this means to and from poiuls
200 yards apart, and thero seems to bo
uo reason to doubt thut speech may bo
sent along a beam of light for great distances. In our experiment, in this wo
first used selenium, u very rare substance, and very sensitive to light. Wo
have found, however, that we cau produce very good results with common
soot, aud the discoveries may yet be
mndo which will make such an invention commercially practicable."—

Perhnps tho result of tho Venezuela
boundary commission's work will ho
the solving of oue of tho most remarkable geological enigmas iu the world
and the exploration of what is regarded
as a unique natural wonderland, This
remarkable region is u number of elevated aud isolated areas of land, Bitu-
uted on what the British cull British
Guiana's southwestern boundary, which
is in tiie disputed territory. It is on tha
British side of tho Sehomburgk line.
A British Guiana newspaper describes
this region, us fur us it is known, and
expresses the hope that the iiuul settlu-
niout of the boundary controversy will
leave it well within British bounds.
Should there be another result, however, tho newspaper says, tho region
should ho made an international park,
something on tho pluu of tbe Yellowstone park reservatiou.
The region is called by the Indians
"Roruima," but the several isolated
areas are known by distinctive names.
Each consists of what might be called
an isolated mountain, but is really a
tableland, comprising an area of 100 or
more square miles, elevated several
thousand feet above the surrounding
cuuntry. The rocky sides of tbe mountains are as perpendicular us tbe Hud-
sou river Palisades and entirely hare of
vegetation and have defied all attempts
to scale them. The level summits are
covered with trees and other vegetation,
and dowu the rocky sides fall a large
number of cascades of considerable size,
indicating the certain existence of rivers and streams on the mysterious summits, and probably of lakes that feed
the rivers. The summits have been observed with telescopes, and are known
to be as full of plant lifo as the tropic-
ul plains below, but beyond this nothing
is known.
Because so littlo Is known of the condition of theso tablelands occasion is
given for all manner of speculation as
to what exists there. That tbo vegetation is quite different from that on tho
plains below the telescope shows, and
that it should be so is quite natural, as
the tablelands are 2,000 or mure feet
higher than the plains. While the climate of tho plains is tropical, that of
the tablelands must bn temperate, not
only because of their elevation, but also
because of the freo pluy the winds havo
about them.
Of the neology of the region this explanation ia given : This part of South
America rose slowly from the ecu.
through snecessivo and reunite ages. Tho
Roruima mountains wero formed precisely ns was the rest of the land, and
aro not the result of volcanic action.
Hence they must havo been above the
ocean long before the surrounding
plains appeared. They Stood 2.000 feet
above the sea level when tho neighboring mountain tups wero but islands in
the oceun. Iu the course of a period,
difficult (o appreciate, lho adjacent valleys aud plains appeared above the water aud became covered with vegetation
and animal life. Rut the Isolated plateaus of Roraimabad a tremendous start
of the plailis below. Here coinos the alleged ground for the speculation that
perhaps on these mysterious summits
there exist flora and fauua uulikeany
fouud elsewhere, forms of life thnt loug
since disappeared from otlier parts of
the world, but remained the same on
these summits because unaffected by the
influences of communication with tho
outer world. All sorts of wild guesses
have been hazarded regarding the existence of strange reptiles and animals
among the streams und forests uf Rural mu.
Tbe cascades falling from the summits are amoug the highest iu fhe
world. One is 2,000 feet high, and is
broad enough to be visible 110 miles
away. It falls sheer, without a break.
Tbe mountains from which these cascades fall form the dividing watersheds
of the Amazon, the Orinoco and the
Essequibo, tbo three great rivers of
South America, aud the waters of tbe
cascades flow some to ouo and some to
another of theso rivers. It is argued
that to supply these waterfalls there
must bo n considerable body of water
on the mountain plateaus, und it is natural to conclude thut where there are
large bodies of water thero aro fish and
ropliles. The resulting conclusion that,
liecausn these fish and reptiles must
have beeu isolated on the mountain
tops for agos thoy are likely to bo different from nuy known species, is regarded as quite natural. Tho mountain
plateaus form practically little countries
