'  Ste.  would  aeo Jesus.���John,  xli.,  Th�� East came to t the < cradle of  Christ, the West came to His cross.  ffTie Magi and the Greeks represent  lhat enlightened religious instinct  ���rhicti, dissatisfied with that which cannot feed the soul, is able to rise above  previous education and prejudice and  ��eek the gratification of its deepest  , Beech a��d its highest aspirations wherever that gratification may be found.  These who thus came to Christ stood  ���w that large number of Greeks, so  Ircqneatiy alluded to, who, perceiving  "the vaaity of popular religion, turned  ��� to ����� me thing more satisfying, and  found ki the synagogue service of the  Jews something which appealed to the  MraTingB of that instinct for God which  fell mu possess. Attaching themselves  wort -or less to Judaism, without sub-  mitting to the religious rites necessary  lo give them full standing, they came  to Jerusalem to worship the God in  whom they had come to believe. Here  ���hey pot themselves in communication with one of the disciples of Jesus  nd request aa interview with the man  nrfeo faos created so great a stir in the  popular mind.  '. Their action may well be regarded  by m M suggesting the cry of an en-  Qghteaed religious instinct for the persona] Christ.  Here curiosity may prompt such a  Vy.,  Now, M thea, Jesus Christ is the  fwobleas oi the ages. He is a personality tttat must be explained; a force  tliat smbc be accounted for. This  ���aaa, whom millions love and no one  tiates, thrusts Himself before us in such  a way that life is entirely changed for  Ms alter we meet Him. "By what authority doest thou these things r" is  a queVtloa we iwait have answered for  tlie aahe oi' oar own peace of mind."  "What that I 4m with Jesus 1" is the  tnqnif-e mi a seui who is confronted  by this perplexing personality, this  Masterful man. The age of inquiry in  which we Hve finds its curiosity baffled  Iry tbb teacher, whose character defies  lunaa analysis, whose truth transcends  ���amaa philosophies and whose influence m more living, more personal,  Store powerful in each succeeding age.  Safer to know what God would have  an do and be, we' turn front all else  to Jtaut, in the hope that at last wc  iaan find an authority upon which we  aan rest  Appreciation may lead us to Him.  ���eyond mere curiosity a soul has come  #o know enough of Jesus to make him  feel that life offers nothing.better than  ���ae study of this character and life.  ���Moral beauties disclose themselves in  ouch a way as to charm us. We.are  fascinated by His graciousness, sub-  '��pc4 by. HU tenderness, moved- by His  lovo. Wa cease to wonder why it is  that those who reject Him vie with  Bbose who accept Him in laying their  tribute of admiration at His feet, and  can understand how it is that even an  feafidel can find the life of Jesus his  highest theme and greatest satisfaction.  The motive which draws us to Jesus  B&ay be even deeper than these. There  nay be a strong personal desire on our  part for Jesus, because He has wooed  and won us. "VJ/e hold Him not at  arms' length; we look not at Him in  the spirit of inquiring criticism; we  feeat Him not as something outside  ml ourselves, but as dearer to us than  ��11 the world; we desire to take Him  lto our very lives, to reign there king  ��f love and life.  In any and every case that which  (his religious instinct cries for is a per-  lonality. When the church, by those  ��ade methods which it once used, tried  Jo convert the world to Christianity, it  brought into its fold a mass of barbarous and unspirilu.il votaries, which  left its impress on church life for a  thousand years. If the church Christianized paganism, paganism in turn  paganized Christianity, As a result, the  personality of Christ was largely lost.  It is the glory of the present lime that  Ihe church is swinging back more and .  more to the personal Christ. As the din j  of religious strife subsides there is pre- |  rented in new beauty and power this '  *ess Son of Man. The weary, the sad,  the forsaken are crying to-day as never  before, "Sir, we would see Jesus.'  Got the Dowry.

Because of lack of financial support, however, the enterprise was abandoned, but  finally tho Norwegian Parliament, in 1S98,  provided the necessary funds and now tho  road is completed Irom one sea to the  other. The terminus on the Atlantic ocean  is found at Narvik. The second portion  of the line, 'that which goes from Gelll-  vare to Lulea and to the Gulf of Bothnia, is less interesting-, but the freight  carried in this duccllou reaches the respectable figure of S00.OOO tons per annum.

One frequently reads about trains going  at tho rate of one hundred miles an  hour, but few persons have ever ridden  at the rate of over seventy-five er eighty  mllea, says Harper's Weekly. On' a  little railroad extending from the suburb* of Berlin to the Town ef Zossen,  an eleotrlc oar has been travelling an  fast as 110 miles an hour, breaking the  record for speed on the highways of steel.  It is what we call a trolley car, but  the trolley system is 'installed on a very  elaborate scale, and the motive power  which eperates the car is simply enormous. >  Tho railroad In question is only about  sixteen miles in length, and was built  by tho Prussian Government for military  purposes. Several months ago it was  turned over to an association of electrical engineers and other experts for the,  purpose of ascertaining what speed could  be developed by the electric current. At  the works of the Siemens & Halako Company of Berlin a car was constructed  especially for the purpose, and when completed with the necessary machinery  weighed nearly ono hundred tons. Tho  body ef the car is similar to many of  inose in uso on railroads in this country,  with a vestibule at each end. And the  roof and sides tapering in order to offer  as little resistance to tho air, when going along at a high rate of speed, as  possible. Tho car Is divided into threo  compartments, with" seats extending  transversely, while tho motorm.in is separated from tho passengers by a glass  partition. "What engineers call the three-  phase system of electricity is utilized for  running tho car and the> two, trailers  which it has been hauling during the experiments. Instead of the current being  conveyed by one or two wires to the  motor, It passes over a series of four,  three of which are carried along tho side  of the railroad upon posts. These are  known as high tension, and are capable  of supporting a current of no less than  12,000 volts, owing to the system of conduction and insulation. The current  passes through the trolley bar, which, as  will be noted, is a very elaborate affair,  and thence through transformers to the  motor. The motors are bolted upon tho  axieS'Of the trucks beneath the car, each  motor being large enough to run an ordinary factory, as It can generate fully  250 horsepower under ordinary conditions. Although these ponderous pieces  of machinery weigh no less than four and  a half' tons each, they move at the  rate of 900 revolutions to a minute when  a car is at full speed. It would be Impossible to stop and start the car with  the controller which the motorman uses  on the ordinary trolley system, so special  apparatus had to be provided for this  purpose. Tho electric switches and transformers are moved by compressed air,  which really does the duty of the motor-  man.  The Defendant Won.  Judge Siebecker of Wisconsin has displayed Solomon-like wisdom In some of  his decisions. Two men appeared before  him. One was a butcher, who claimed  that the defendant owed him $10 for a  meat bill. The defendant, a strikingly  thin and gaunt figure,, denied the bill.  Statements and counter-stirtements followed each othor with great rapidity.  The lie was passed, but the constable intervened.  "When was this meat purohased which .  you aeld the defendant?" asked the Judge.  "During; the past four weeks, your  Honor." declered the butcher. , {  "Then I decide this cuae in favor of the  defendant," remarked the Judge, dellber-'  ately. as he scrutinized the emaciated ,  figure before him. "His appearanc Indl-.  catea that he haa not eaten $10 worth off  meat In hi* lifetime."  How He Learned to Count.  Had Lots of Time.  The following anecdote Is told of Joaquin Miller, (the reports of whose death  published lately were promptly denied) the poet, who had a funeral pyre  and monument built after his own designs:���  Years ago he was Journeying on foot,  and was overtaken by an honest countryman, who took him up on his loaded  waggon and gave him a long ride. Tired,  Joaquin Miller's funeral pyre and monument at Oakland, Cal., built after his  own design.  at length, of conversation, the poet look  a noyel from his pocket and pored over  it long and silently.  "What aro you reading?" said ' Iho  countryman.  "A novel of Bret Ilarte's," said Mr.  Miller.  "Well, now, I don't see how an immortal being wants to bo wasting his  time with such stuff."  "Are you quite sure?" asked the poet.  "Are you quite suro that I am an immortal   bolngV"  "Of com tic you aro."  "If that Is so," responded *MllIc>r, "I  don't see why I need be economical of  my  timo."  The nctumpiinylng sketch of the pyre  and riioriiimcnt���lt is to servo hoili purposes���was    taken     from    a    California  The, New Tork Sun ha�� the'following:���Tho expert accountant eald, aa he  carefully ehuffled'the'cards: "If it ha*  not been for-a frazzled old pack of cheap  playing cards which I kept, elaborately  hidden in the' bottom drawer of tho  walnut washstund ln^ my little room ia  my boyhood days on tho farm, my services would not now bo in such demand  by confused financiers. Tho old-tima  prejudice against the devil's pioture book  was strong in my family, but I held on .  to that pack with grim determination, I  and many is tho candle I havo seen sink  in tallow drips as I dealt out tlie fifty-  two pasteboards into one uneven pile, I  time after timo. But I was not playing ,  a game; I was not even wasting time.'j  I was learning to add. You noed not .  look surprised. Te me the whole thing '  seemed, and even now seems, very sim- ,  pie. I wonder "that more people have J  not taken it up, but I appear to hava j  been the only person among my acquaMit- j  ances who has ever used playing aarda ,  for arithmetical purposes. To-day my .  eldest boy, a youngster of 12, puzzles his j  way through tho some system that made ,  a threatening column of figures seem like  a twe-part sum to me. It is very simple,  as I have said. There are fifty-two cards  in every pack, and they are numbered ���  from one to ton in spots, and from eleven  to thirteen in face cards. I give the three  face cards the remaining value above ten;  that is, the jack is eleven, the queen .  twelve and the king thirteen. Now, the  constant sum of the thirteen cards of each  suit Is 91. It can be no more or no less,  no matter in what sequence the cards are  dealt out. The constant sum of four '  suits, therefore, must be just four times j  91, or 3G4. Now, with this to start on, I I  evolved my own peculiar system of sight  counting. The practice of a fortnight ���  made me so expert at it in -comparison  with the other pupils in the:school to  which I was sent that I achieved a reputation for quickness at figures. On ex- j  hibitlon days the teacher would invar- I  iably trot me out, and havo me go  through my addition paces until I became  ^one of the curiosity's of the villaee ac- ;  ademy. But to return to the system. I  do not know what started me off on the .  idea, but this is what I did: First ar- ;  ranging tho pack in regular order of suits. !  and all the cards of each suit in regular  sequence from ace up, I started in to add  them as they fell. If the sum of the  thirteen made 91 I knew that no mistake  had been made. If the total was something else I started all over again and  worked at it until it came right. Thi3  formal preparation completed, I took the  whole pack, sequence by sequence, until  I was able to*reach the correct total of  3G4 without error. Then I shuffled each  suit and went at adding the cards as they  fell in unexpected and disordered sequence  until I perfected myself in that advanced  branch. Then came the hardest test, that  of adding the fifty-two cards, all shuffled  together as.this pack is. I had many a  bad half hour at that, but at last I was  so trained that I could deal the shuffled  cards off as rapidly as my hands could  fly, and get through to the total of 384  without a blunder. I spent nearly nine  months perfecting myself In that system  of mine, and never a word did I say to  anybody about it. If my old teacher  Is living yet I would like to toll her how  I came to be so quick at the figures. After leaving school I went to work in a  bank and there I found that my training  with the cards stood mo in good stead,  for  with   a   littlo   practice   a   formidable  Great care is exercised in producing  the famous ��� Cotentin butter of Nor  mandy, which sells in Paris at $1.25 per  pound. The'cows are brushed and kept  Very clean, the udders washed' and  dried,"and, the attendants and milkers  keep   themselves  clean.    The ,milk  is  ^doubly strained, and the churning is  conducted on the best principles.     No  ' odors are allowed to come in contact  with the milk at any time, and even the  food and water of the cows are carefully" inspected. ,  The food animals consume modifies  the character of their flesh. Turnips  yield a peculiar flavor to mutton. The  flavor of mutton from sheep that have  lived upon the. highlands is different  from that of sheep which have obtained their food chiefly from the lowlands.'  The garlic of the meadows and some  fragrant herbs modify the flavor of the  meat Oily food tends to make the  fat soft. Hens partly fed on scraps of  decayed meat yield eggs that are at  once unpleasant to the taste and unhealthy. Feeding the animals for human food is then of great importance  and demands ��� experience. It is noi  enough that,food makes fat���if should  also impart an agreeable flavor.

Thousands of dollars are lost annually by butter being mottled. This  defect is caused by an uneven distribution of salt. Take three lots of butter from the same churning, -even  where no artificial coloring has been  added, salt one lot at the rate of one-  half ounce, the second at one .ounce,  and the third lot at one and a half  ounces, and the color will be so strikingly high in the last lot that it could  not be mixed with the other lots without showing streaks. ' '  . This is no doubt due to the fact  that salt has an affinity for water. The  tendency is" for them to run together  and form a solution. When salt is  . used the water collects in larger beads,  thus giving the butter a darker, shade  ef color., Wherever you - find light  streaks in butter, you will invariably  find.no salt. Therefore, the first consideration in salting butter is to get  good salt'that will dissolve readily. The  (butter should not be drained very dry.  It is better to use a little more salt if  it is inclined to wash off some.  Salt should always be put' on the  butter in the churn, and the churn revolved a-few times.to thoroughly. incorporate the salt and -butter before  putting the rollers in gear, thus retaining as much moisture as possible.  'Allow, the butter to stand from fifteen to twenty minutes before working, and then work it until it becomes  waxy in appearance and the salt ceases  to be, gritty. If these precautions' are  observed there will be no danger of  mottles.���C. C. Lyon, in American Cultivator.  Skim Milk for Pigs.

One hundred pounds  of milk contain seven-eighths of a  pound of bone material. Nature* intended milk for the young calf; that  is, the cow's milk is for the purpose  of nourishing a calf; now, if you feed  that to the pig there is the material in  that milk which is intended to build  up the bone of the calf, and it will build  up the bone of the pig.

You who complain of too fine bone  bear in mind what has been said here.  When you come to the fattening process you do not need that bone-making material so much, and you don't  get its value to yourself so much as  with the younger pigs. Aim, then, to  use skim milk for your growing pigs;  but you must be careful not to use too  much. From one to three pounds of  skim milk with each pound of cornmcal  is about .the right proportion. If you  use eight or nine pounds of milk to  each pound of cornmcal, you don't get  the top of the value from your skim  milk.  There is one man in this_ country  who has done worKis for the live stock  interest, and that is H. B. Gurler of  De Kalb, III. About eighteen years  ago he conducted some pig feeding experiments, and he deduced a rule which  farmers would do well to remember.  He says that for the feeders of hogs  skim milk is worth half as much a hundred pounds as corn sells for a bushel;  if corn is worth 30 cents a bushel, then  the skim milk is worth IS cents a hundred pounds for fattening purposes.. A  former speaker was right in saying  that whey is worth about half as much  as skim milk.���Professor Henry, in  Dairy; World.

An' I see Squire comin'���"  "Squire!"  There was a fresh murmur, and without daring to look straightforwardly at  0 him, all the crowd in the little cottage  room felt that their attention, though  not their eyes, was riveted on Astiey,  '���who at once came forward a step fiom  the mantelpiece against which ho had  been leaning.  "Speak t* truth, lad," said the miner  'iwarningly.'  "He's probably speaking the truth  now," said Astiey quietly. "For it's a  fact that I came 'back to The Ilaigh this;  evening from the town, and passed  through the plantation an hour or so  , mgo." ,  Again there was a slight sensation  observable, to the keen eyes of Norma at  least, among the people present. They  felt thcro was a fascinating mystery  somewhere.  ^ "So you got up in 'he tree for fear of  being discovered by -Sir Astiey on the  lookout for his nibbits?" said Dr.  Wharles..  The Ltd began to stammer and to  tremble. , i  "I didn't* do no harm," ho said in his  rough voice. "There's others gets into t'  wood besides me."  Tho doctor instantly changed Ins tone  to one of good-humored kindness.   ,  "Oh, Sir Astiey won't bo hard upon  you this once in a way for trespassing.  As you say, you're not the only offender."  The doctor had scarcely finished speaking when the people began to mako way  -for the haronct, who appeared suddenly  desirous of taking a more prominent  yart in the proceedings than he had  -done. As he came forward, the miner  who was on one aide of Ned <jave way at  once: the doctor, however, did not.  "Don't 'be flurried, my boy," said Dr.  , Wharles in his cheery tones, "you know  ' what you* saw, or what you didn't, scp,  and what you heard or didn't hear. Don't  3et anyone flurry'you." ���      '    ,  "Be good enough not to prompt the  boy, Dr. Wharles," said Astiey sharply.  All present held-their breath. News of  the' scene between these two men had  spread like wildfire through the neighborhood, and m.inv,,md wild were the  conjectures afloat as to the cause of .the  quarrel. The doctor's usually handsome  lace still bora eloquent witness to the  (result of it.  "Nothing ,was further from <��� my  thoughts, I assure you, Sir Asbley," said  Dr. Wharles, with a bland and slightly  martyr-like air conducive to a feeling of  from  being  bullied,  with  any  impropei  ��� motive, Sir Astiey!" askoa he with hre  "I only mean," said Astiey, as calmly  as before, "that we've not heard all the  truth yet, but���that we shall probably  be able to get at it by and by."  There was an uneasy feeling growing  in the'group, that resolved itself into an  instinctive withdrawal of the better sort  among them towards the door. Something in the faces and in the manner of  tho two men who t wore meeting each  other'bo fiercely eye to eye, Beomed to  imply that there was more than a mere  discuMdon of an exciting affair between  them, that there was something intimate, something personal in the matter!  onat called upon casual spectators to be  modest. ' '  Before, however, this feeling had resolved itself into definite action on the  part of the bystanders, AsLley, without  another word to the boy, turned his  back on the doctor, and advancing to the  corner where - Norma was standing,  shrinking, nervous, trembling, foe took  her hand in his arm, and saying gently:  "Come,'dear," led her out of the cottage,  with a courteous acknowledgment, as lie  went, of the salutations of his tenants  and humble neighbors. v  t '  Once in the road outside, Norma was  able to speak freely. As she and Astiey  crossed the road together, and walked  along slowly under the shadow of the  black wall, she whispered:  "Astiey, you -were right. The boy  didn't tell all the truth about what he  saw."      ' *��� r  . "I was sure of that."  "He told me, as soon as he came down  from the tree, that the murderer lifted  the body up and threw it down again."  "What!"  , ��<Sh���sh! I don't think you'd better  go back," said she quickly, as Astiey  stopped and turned. "You'll get nothing  from him now. Let Mr. Capper know.  There'll be an inquest, won't theier"  "Yes, of course."  ��� "Perhaps  the  truth  will  come   out  'then."  "The truth. What is the truth t" said  Astiey, his voice sinking till it was as  low as hers. , ,       >  But that was a question she was not  prepared to answer. They looked at  each other furtively in the weak light of  the one lamp, and they saw the same  fear injeach other's' eyes. >  *lt,'was Norma "who spoke first.  "Let's go out into the fields," sho said,  "where we can be quite sure no one can  hear us. Just for a minute. I want to  say something Jx> you." r  So they went back, and re-crossed the  lane, and went over the stile into  the  sympathy on his behalf against his late   open ground, where Norma felt safe from  assailant.     "But   the   poor   little   chap   being overheard  seems nervous, and whatever violence  you may think proper to use in your  , dealings with grown men, I insist upon*  your more gentle treatment of the boy."  -Astiey was furious. The doctor was  indeed making artful use of his wounds  te excite sympathy for himself and antagonism against the baronet, who was  really the most kind-hearted of men.  It was some seconds before Astiey  eouild trust himself to speak. Then he  turned to the people round him, and  ���aid, in a steady and straightforward  way that appealed as strongly to the  men as the more theatrical manner of  the doetor did to the women: "I think,  Miou<rii you don't know me very well yet,  pou have ail seen enough of me to be  sure I would never use violence towards  iny person who didn't thoroughly de-  terve it." .    '  There was a murmur of assent audible  -at once; and the doctor grew-rather less  florid as he shrugged his shoulders, still,  -however, keeping a showily protecting  fcand on the shoulders of the boy who,  ���truth to tell, was as solid and sturdy a  young rascal as the county held, and  could have heldhis own in a. tussle with  either of the men.  "You got up in the tree to hide from  me," said Astiey, in a t very calm, mea-  -eured voioe, and without any trace of  riolence; "and what happened after  that?"  Stubborn silence on the part of the  ���boy.  "Speak out, laddie," said tho miner  from a little distance.  "Don't be afraid," reiterated tho doctor close to his side.  "I duimo what happened after that/'  said Ned sullenly.  "Yo' must ha' seen. somebody down  below. If you could see I' squire you  could seo other folk," said the miner.  "Did you see anybody else?" asked  the doctor, still .keeping up tliat friendly  tone which contrasted so strongly with  the slightly cross-examining maimer of  the others. *  "No," said Ned. "I see nobody 'ceptin'  Bquire."  "You mean, .perhaps," suggested tho  genial doctor, "that you saw Sir Astlej  while you were still on the ground. Bui  when you got up in the tree you were  too high up to-distinguish anybody below."  "Ay, that's reght," said Ned.  Astiey laughed a little, and at the  tound Dr. Wharles looked, round with  some slight uneasiness, perhaps afraid  of another attack from the hot-headed  baronet.  "I dare say," -said Astiey quietly, "we  shall get at something more reasonable  from tho lad when there's no one beside  him to put tlie words in his mouth."  At that the doctor stood up quickly.  "Do you mean to suggest that I .inn  taJunir this -bov'a ,par-t. .and .saving him  "I want to tell you," she said, "before  we say good-night���"  "Good-night!" cried he in consternation. "Aren't you going back with me  then?"  "Not on any account. And you aro  not to ask where I live, or to come and  see me."  "But why shouldn't you stay at the  Haigh? People will chatter, and ask all  Borts of questions if you don't come back,  and if they know you're living here!"  Norma made an impatient movement  with 'her hand, in, her impulsive, half foreign fashion.  "What does that matter? Wouldn't  they chatter in any case? Let them  talk till they're tired of talking. I tell  you I have a reason," said she imperiously. "Now I want to tell you not to  he alarmed if the truth doesn't all'como  out at the inquest. I have an idea that  it won't; I have an idea that1 we shall  be made to suffer a -good deal more before it does. Now will you promise me  not to quarrel with Dr. Wharles again,  and not to express any suspicion of anybody���-J*  "You know something?" cald Astlej  quickly.   -  "I don't indeed. I know absolutelj  nothing. But���I believe it's my Italia*  blood, I have a fancy that I can plai  'detective a little, and I tell you 1  ���shouldn't scruple to do it in a cause 1  bad deeply at heart."  "Come, you can tell me, what do you  "juspeot?"  "I can tell you nothing. You wouls  laugh at me. But I want you to be verj  circumspect, _ and very quiet and���verj  generous to your wife."  "You are my wife," cried Astiey pas  oionately.  "I don't mean me, though," said Nor  me. demurely.    "I mean to���the othei  one."  "But why���"  "Do as I tell you. And rememtoel  again and again, you arc not to ba  alarmed whatever they say, whatever  they think."  "I wish you'd explain," said Astiey  uneasily.  But sho would not. Sho called his attention, at that moment, to a commotion  in the lane behind them, and returning  thither, they found that.tho police had  coma from Bln.ckdo.le, and with them a  freph crowd of sonsation-mongers.  The people streamed into tho read,  into, the plantation. The police went  first, with Dr. Wharles, who bad bees  summoned from Raggett's cottage to  explain what indeed there was little  need to explain. - Norma and Astiey  drawing Wether under the shelter ol  the hedge that bordered the lone, beside  the etile, -heard the doctor's ringing tone*  as he talked. Tlie people who !had been  in. .tho cottage, ana who had seen the  Body, did not, for the most part,' join in  this seeond expedition into the wood;  they formed groups in tho lane, discuss  ing the mysterious affair.  Tlie werds of some of these gossips  reached the ears of Astiey and his com  pankm, ,a8, anxious that the people  should disperse before they theraselvei  went back into the lane, t'hey waited a  few minutes in silence near the stile.  'It's a' rum thing this, and a bad be  ginning for t' new master oop at t  Haigh, said one man to another, in a  low voioe. f ( ,  ��� "Ay," said his mate, "let's hope as o\v  t' truth '11 coom out and clear him."

"But hi'  saya hissen as how ho doan't think w<  ought to talk as if we felt suspicious  without more proof than'we.gotten." <���  Nonna was .trying to draw Astlej  away: but he seemed to be rooted to thl  spot. "They suspect me of the murder!'  he cried hoarsely.' y  ��������� i  CHAPTER XVni. '      .  Very gently, very sweetly, Norma trice  to soothe Astiey, and  to restrain him  rrom following  tho  artful doctor, thei.  and  there.    "Don't you  see,"  cried  tin  unhappy Astiey, "that it's this rascalh  fellow who's  been  spreading  the  belie")  that it was I who killed this man, the  very man I've-been so anxious to meet?'  "Well, if he has," said Norma persuan  ively, "his tales will turn against himseli  by and by.    People will say that he ie  malicious and revengeful, after your attack upon him, and that this is the woj  he ie trying to satisfy his malice."  But Astiey would not be convinced. ,  "This affair is of too' intimate a na  ture for the truth to be given to the  world," said he, "and the beggar knows  that, and presumes upon it."    '  "Well then, how can you bring up the  ���abject new, before all the people?" said  Norma. '"You know it's impossible. The  doctor would aay such things before everybody, that you would not be able to  control your rage and disgust.' No, no,  let me persuade you; let me, oh, let mc  have the satisfaction of feeling that 1  have dene some good, some little good!"  Her plaintive appeal touched Astiey  to the nsart. Once more he entreated  her to o��me back to the Haigh with him  and when his entreaties failed, he began  to reproach her and to say she did not  care for him.,-  "Don't you see," urged he, "that while  you live is. the neighborhood, yet not in  my house, people will ask questions, and  ferret out things? While if you come  back, and live in the same house as you  have dene, the gossips will be quiet?"  "Oh, no, they won't," said Norma.  "This affair.to-night, this dreadful story,  will bring out more than you think. And  then you will find people will see we have  done what is right, what is best. And,  remember, the more of the truth they  learn the stronger the feeling for us will  be. We need not tell anybody anything:  we don't want to parade our griefs before the world. But since the world  will never be satisfied till it knows the  truth, and since the truth'is that we are  both quite blameless, isn't it better not  to moke any pretense, but to'face the  facts as they are, and wait?"  He let himself be persuaded at last.  But her heart ached for him, as, weary  and worn out, he left her, when the excitement in the neighborhood had died  down, and the body had been carried  away, and went Ijack, through the dark  wood, which had been the scene of such  a terrible tragedy, to bis great, lonely  house���ill "and alone.  On tlie following morning Norma, from  her upper window, saw Dr. Wharles como  up the lane, not in his gig, but on) foot,  and go quickly into Raggett's house.  Her landlady, old Mrs. Giles, saw him  too, and instantly began to gossrp, with  an old woman's malice, about black-eyed  Nance Raggett and the handsome doctor.  "Is he often at the cottage, then?"  asked Norma.  "Dear, no, my lady," said Mrs. Giles.  For she had learnt who Norma was, and  was very proud of her lodger, though  somewhat puzzled by, her choice of a  residence. "I've never seen him there  afore. No doubt he' noticed her black  eyes and her saucy, ways last neght; for  she's a bold 'un; not but what there's  something to be said for her, poor thing,  tied to a drunken fellow like Raggett;  which she's his second wife, and no children of her own, only that gowk of a  Ned, the eon by Raggett's first wife, to  look-after. But there, I'm. running on,  and I see you don't care for gossip, my  lady; it's not likely a lady of your  quality would.".  Nerma let' her run on with her remarks, but the point of interest was  past for her. This, then, was the doe-  tor's first visit to the cottage, with the  ���xeeption of his share in the visitation  ���f the previous night. She took mental  note of this fact, and even condescended  to play tho spy from her window, in order to ascertain how long Dr. Wharles  stayed there. And his visit was a very  long one.  ifeceased against any0'man  or of any  grudge entertained against him.  The next witness called was Norma,  who trembled so pitifully that they gave  her'a ehair, in which she sat, limp and  lifeless, her features shrouded by a thick  black veil, the raising of which was suggested by one juryman; though his demand was evci i tiled. '  She looked such a forlorn little creature, in her'black dress, with her great  black eyes shining out of a pale face  through the meshes of the veil, tliat a  good deal of sympathy was aroused for  her. Rumors had not been wanting as to  the existence of a lady with a better  right than she had 'to her title, and the  fact that she was not living at her reputed husband's house was taken as convincing proof that there was something  in the rumors.  The nature of some of the questions  put to her was startling in the extreme.  "May I ask, Lady Darwen, how it was  that you were in the wood that evening  the evening, of the murder?" asked the  coroner, i cspectfully enough, but so unexpectedly that Nonna stinted violently  She waited a moment before replying,  i "I was in the lane beside the wood,  ����� hen I saw a flash in the darkness, and  then another flash, and heard two reports and a loud cry. I got over tlie  wall and ran through the wood"until J  touched something with my foot, and  found���itjwas���the body." ,  "Did you see anyone in the wood before  you saw the flash?" ,  "Not at that time," she answered, after a moment's hesitation.  The jurors grew attentive.     '  ��"Not at that time! jDo you mean you  'had previously seen'someone there?"..  "I nad seen someone go into the wood  ���two people."  "Two .people? 'How long before was  that?"  "I can't tell exactly.  Some minutes before." "' u  >  "They passed you in0the lane?"  "No.    I saw  them  from the window  of Mrs. Giles's cottage."'  "Will you tell us just what you saw?'"  "I wa�� at my 'window when I saw  someone���cross the road, irom the stile  a little beyond the cottages, aad go iato  "the wood."                           ,' -*  "Over the .wallr'         ���     ,  Norma's heart wid her voioe sank together,                      c-  "No.   Through the gate."  "Through  the gate!    Is it a public  way?" ,                     '  "No. v He unlocked the gate and went  through."  "Did yeu see who it was?"  "I  thought it was���Sir, Astiey  Darwen," said Norma tremulously.  'Here Astiey nodded a decisive assent  to the coroner and jury. The eoroner  went on with his interrogatory:  "And you say you saw a second man?  Did he go through the gate with Sir Aat-  ley!" - ^      ,  *"Vo.    He came from the stile, went  1 up the lane to the right, and got over the  wall into the wood."  "AVhen was this?" -L  >  "A few moments later."  "And who was, this man?"       y,     _v  "I don't know' at all.   He was never  >ear enough for. me to see."  "But you can give* us your impression  as to 'his appearance. Was he a tall or  a ��h��rt man?"  ���    "Tall, I think.   Not particularly short,  I am almost sure."  "Bid you ever see the deceased man in  lifeT'  "Yes.   Onoe fer a few momenta only."  "Was it he you saw?"  "I really didn't see well enough to be  tore.   If I must give my impression, it  was that the man I saw cross the road  imis a broader-built, stouter man than  thought him  too   unintelligent* fist~$a  Jdve, told the truth. '  The next witness was the keeper ef an  tin where the deceased had passed the  ���right previous to his death.  This man deposed that the deceased  -fid said his business in tho town was  with Sir Astiey Darwen, and1 he had  bragged "that he would be a richer man  when he loft Blackualo than when he  went into it. ,  These statements, which were after-J  waids confirmed by two or three townspeople, customers, at the inn, who had>  Bjnoken with Rogerson, produced a profound sensation in court,   aiumy a curious glance was directed, after this, to ���  the corner where Sir' Astiey and his wife  sat, botli very i quiet and downcast, aide  by side. ,  The next witness, when these had been  disposed of, was Dr. Wharles.  There was a subdued buzz of whispering   voices  in   the   court   when   he�� advanced and stood  up facing the jury;  and  the spectators glanced at the sear "  on  his handsome  face,  and   exchanged  furtive nods as they looked from himHto,  Sir Astiey, and recalled by a frown or a  raised eyebrow the scene which had tak--/  en place between these two men but a  few days before.  ���   Dr. Wharles, proved an excellent witness,  clear,   straightforward,   unhesitating.  After stating that he had first judged,r,  from the position of the wound and of  the body, that the tragedy was a case of i  suicide,   but   that  subsequent  examina-V  tion, and the fact that no weapon had  been found, had caused him to alter bis  opinion, he gave a minute description "oi  the two wounds found on the dead man, -  one of which had pierced the heart, and  must have proved instantly fatal; then .'  he went on'to answer the various further  questions put to him with perfect dis-���  tjnetness and "in a voice whieh all'could  hear. ___, '     '   '' -|  "Did you  know    the    deceased,-Dr.'  Wharles?"      , ,     '  ,(To be Continued.),'  ~'"A~pl  15  \\AA  WELL EARNED,     .

John J.

In the  year 1896 it got so bad that I could  scarcely walk, sit or   sleep. , I    was  about to give up when an advertisement led me to try Dodd's    Kidney  Pills and they did a wonderful work "  for me.  "Dodd's Kidney Pills saved my life  and though years have elapsed since  my cure I have had no trouble since  I used them.  "I belong to the I. 0.

A Hot Spot to Work In.  The   engineers   digging   thev wonderful  tunnel that runs through the great Simp-  -lon Mountain to connect/Switzerland with  Italy  are  experiencing great difncultlea  because of the presence of boiling water  in tho mountain.   The water cornea from  the top of the mountain,  and is heated    ,  almost to boiling point by the frUtion and  pressure  of its percolation  through  the  '  limestone beds of tho mountain.    Before  the tunnel had been dug very far on tho  Italian side  the  heat became so intense  that it was impossible to live in it.   The  mountain waa piped, and soon 16,000 gallons of steaming hot water was flowing  out of the south ond of tho tunnel every  minute of  the day and night.   The immense  flow was harnessed and mado to  drive   refrigerating   plants^arid    cold-air    .  blowers.   To-day the temperature of the   '  tunnel has been  reduced  from a height  that would have roasted a man in a minute or two, and the atmosphere now has  the pleasant warmth of a June day.   Tho  hot- water  also  drives   pneumatic   drills  and boring machines, so that it helps to  dig the tunnel as well.   When completed  the Slmplon tunnel will be the biggest in  the   world���fourteen   miles   long,   with   a  cost of nearly $1,000,000 a  mile.  Did Not Hear It.

The color died away from Bertha's  jomawhat flushed cheeks, as she  paused to listen, for they too had  paused where two roads separated.  "We must not walk any further to-  5ether,"  said Paul  Fordham's voice.  Nobody is to suspect anything yet,  you know.   We'll surprise them;"  And then oame Zatdee's: soft, hesk  jSating laugh.  "It seems like a dream, Mr. Ford��  bam.".:;  "But you will find it, I hope, a happy  reality," he said, looking tenderly  down upon her bowed head. "You do  Bot regret trusting to me?"

Sho hurried down the twilight glade,  the thorns tearing her dress, the briers  wounding her delicate flesh, but eh*  felt them no more than if they had  been rose petals blown toward her by  the evening breeze. Some strong, savage purpose was maturing in her mind  ���some overmastering passion held he/  ���whole being in its grasp.  She knew that to strike into the right  road Zaidee must ere long take the secluded path sho was treading. Her sole  aim was to reach the tiny footbridgo  which'crossed the narrow river first.  And sho succeeded. It was quite'  dark���the'fragrant, starry darkne&s of  a midsummer night���when she hurried  down the steep shelving bank:  "The planks arc old and ruinous,"  she murmured. "They shook and rattled under my feet as I passed over today. Zaidee Raymond shall come between me and my plighted lover no  more!"  As she crossed, she cleliberatly  stooped, tearing up plank after plank  behind her and throwing them into the  river with a dull, splashing sound.  They were not large, but they had b-*cn  twice, nay, threo times their size, Bertha wyman would have torn them  away from tho moldering beams, so supernatural seemed her strength, in that  instant. >        ,  "There!" she said, half aloud, pausing to look down into the peacetul  stream where the planks floated amid  the faint, reflection of innumerabls  stars. "Long ago, when I was a child,  a man was drowned he"e. The water  is deep, and the spot is very lonely."  The next moment she was gone, hurrying madly away, as if somo unseen  presence were following close upon her  footsteps.  "You're lata'to-night, Bertha!"  Paul was looking out,for her from  the piazza steps,, and came pleasantly  to meet her.  "I know it," she said," putting tho  hair away from her forehead, where  the cold dew stood out in beads. '"It is  a long way from Redcoite farm, and I-  I did not walk very fast."  "Come and sit by me, Bertha," said  Paul. "I've got a long story to tell  you."  "What is'it?" she asked mechanically.  "It's about little  Zaide   Raymond.  She's not a widow, after all."  "Not a widow?"  "No; and how do you suppose I  found it out? Clifford, my cousin Clifford, wrote to me from India, and he  is her husband. You see, there was  some misunderstanding, some absurd  quarrel between them before the honeymoon was over. He was a jealous  fool, and she was passionate and sho  ran away and left him. He somehow  heard that she was' in this part of the  country, and wrote to "me. Of course,  the. minute I got a chance to speak to  her I knew it was Zaidee. And she ia  the happiest little creature in the  world, to think he really loves her, and  next week she's going out to him. I've  managed it all. Don't you think I'm a  pretty good diplomatist?" ��  His face was fairly radiant with honest pleasure as he looked down into  Bertha's faoe. He did not see the gaze;  her eyes, wide open'and dilated, were  fixed on vacancy, and her face was  deadly white.  Merciful Heaven! What had she  done in the wild, unreasoning madness  of her jealousy? Was the blot'of Cain  upon her brow?  When she rose th�� next morning she  looked as if an illness of months had  passed over her head.  "How ill you look, dear," said her  aunt. "I'm afraid that walk was too  much for you yesterday. And it's so  strange that Zaidee did not come homo  last night."  "Strange!" As Bertha Closed her  heavy eyes she almost seemed to see  the dead face turned upward among  the water lilies, with its wealth of jetty  hair tangled amid their wreathed  stems! Oh, as long as she lived that  white face would haiint her waking or  sleeping hours.  Would it be long before they found  the corpse? Would they bring it up  the flowery lawn, with the long hair  dripping? Ot would it float there, for  days, perhaps, in the lonely fipot?  And��� s  "Why, Zaidee! where have you  fceen?"  Bertha started up with a wild, hysteric scream.   It was her aunt's voice,  and   Zaidee   Raymond   stood   in   the  midst of them, with blooming cheeks'  and soft, dimpling smiles.  ��At Farmer Geary's, to be sure. It  was so dark when I passed there last  night that the kind souls insisted on  my staying there with them until  morning. And it was a very lucky  thing I did, for when we got to the  bridge this morning wo found that tho  thunder showers in tho night had  raised the stream and washed away  half of those ruinous old planks!"  Bertha Wyman rose and came toward Zaidee, taking her to her bosom  With a strong, tender pressure that tho  young creature scarce understood.  ''Ob,, Zaidee, we'were so frightened!  ffhank Heaven you are safe once more!  Dearest. Zaidee, Paul has told me all,  and I am so glad!"  If ever a, woman spoke from the bottom of her heart, Bertha Wyman did  at that moment. :  ;The next week Mrs. Raymond went  out to join her husband in India, and a  month afterward Paul Fordham was  mairried to, Bertha, whose unwonted  gentleness and sweetness of demeanor,  rather astonished the whole household.  "Something has changed her very,  much," ffli-id the good old man. But no  one ever knew what that "something**  ^as that had wrought such an altera^  tion ia Bertha's character.  Interesting Items.

Mr. Ililes, it  seems, nourished tlie desire to become an  artist from his early childhood. At eight  years of age, however, ho was deprived  of both his arms in a tramcar accident  at Bristol.

As might be expected, ho  uses tfhe most approved of modern rods  and flies in fishing.  "I have met some fishermen, even  among professional sportsmen, who prefer old-fashioned methods," said Dr. Jordan^ "land though the ancient story of  the farmer's boy who catches fish with a-  bent pin fastened to a piece, of twine  where full-rigged sports from the city  fail to get a bite borders on the mythi-  aal, I have actually witnessed insltances  >f success with back-number outfits  where modern appliances failed to land  bhe game.

'"What bait did he use?,' I'asked.  " "Live grasshoppers,' replied the old  man, 'but he didn't impale them. From  his head 'he would stoically pluck a hair  and with it bind the struggling insect to  Bhe (hook. Almost upon the instant that  bhis bait struck the water a fish would  leap for it. After landing liim the Indian would calmly repeat the perform-  ance of snatching a hair from his head  and affixing a fresfli grasshopper to the  hook.'

Take the gatling gun for  eaomple, the inventor of which, Dr. Kioh-  aid J. Gatling, died in New York the oth  " er day, aged eighty-five. The idea of his  deBtiuotive gun was suggested to Iiirri  early in the Civil War by the spectacle  of tie great number of soldiers sent  ��home for burial, who had died, not from  '���bullets, but from disease in the hospitals  ,It occurred to him that there were toe  many men in the service. He thought ii  something could be invented whereby  one soldier could do the work of a hun  dred, .the other ninety-nine could stay  at home, and there would be fewer widows and orphans in gonsequence. So he  1'invented a gun which" would throw hundreds of bullets by merely turning a  crank. But though this gun made war  ���more destructive, it did not reduce th<  number of soldiers as he had anticipated. Dr7 Gatling, there is reason to believe, sought to mitigate the evil he had  unintentionally wi ought by turning his  inventive genius to the ai ts of peace, and  his last years were spent in perfecting a  new plow he had invented, which, it is  expected, will revolutionize agricultuie  on the great farms of the West. Th��i  plow runs by gasolene motor of sufficient (  power to propel the machine with tlie |  shares at any. depth up to twelve inches [  The plow not only plows, but harrows .  rolls and seeds the ground at the same1  ,time, thus saving one-fourth,the cost oi  i planting.

I  have arrived at this conclusion not hastily, but after careful introspection and  experimentation. Since first I met you  I 'have been troubled, my most alarming  symptom being an aching void. To-nighi  the throbbing of that vacuum has been  so strong that I have been able to locate  it in my heart." f  ' The voice of the youth choked with  mingled emotion and tobacco, both of  which he had been swallowing right  along. Spreading a handkerchief upon  the ground, he fell upon his knees, severing in his impetuosity the last bond of  connection between his suspenders anal  his sky-blue trousers.

The Englishman Impaled.  War between the Scotch and the English is on once more. This time swords  and long* bows are not the implements  of vengeance, but the pens 'of authors.  Not long ago the publication of "The Unspeakable, Scot" aroused much resentment among the dwellers in Caledonia  by 'its unjust criticism of the Scotch  people. A counter-thrust hoe now appeared from the pen of Angus McNeill,  entitled "The Egregious English." This  is made up of scathing irony, sarcasm,  criticism, and hypercriticism, directed  against the English people and'some of  their customs and institutions.  In brief,.Mr. McNeill says England ie  decadent. Her men of business are "Willie boys;" her' journalists are, tied to  apron-strings; her employed men are servile slaves; her women are as homely as  Don Quixote's duenna, and with no redeeming qualities of mind; her Army is  weighted down,with commissioned officers, knowing well how to climb the social ladder, but understanding nothing  and caring as much about how to scale  a kopje; iier clergy aie debased cultures, dishing up-to a gluttonous publia  pabulum containing ,no ingredients < of  true religion, or etmes; her politicians  are wire-pullers; her poets died long  ago; and her fiction writers are skilled  only in glossing over the vulgar and presenting the manufacture to an undiscern-  ing public. And so on through the list  of subjects to the last, "The Beloved"���  the Englishman abroad���well, described  in ,the irony of the author aa follows:  "He drops fatness and blessings as he  walks. He smiles benignity and gracious-  aess and 'I-am-glad-to-see-you-all-looking-  30-well.' And before him runs one in  plush, crying:/rWho is the most popular  man of this footstool?'

She declares that the love of home ��� tho  desiroito make a home���"is far stronger  in the poorer classes nowadays than in  the wealthy or even the moderately rieli  of the general community, and, adds:  "Women of "the 'upper ten' are no longer  pre-eminent as rulers of tho home, but  are to be seen daily and nightly as noisy  and pushing frequenters of public restaurants. The great lady is seldom or  never to be found 'at home' on her own  domain, but she may be easily met at  the Carlton, Prince's or the Beikeley (on  Sundays).

She also receives and sends a  few telegrams. At two o'clock she goes  out in her carriage and lunohes with  some chosen intimates at one or other  of the-fashionable restaurants. Lunch  over, she returns home and lies down  for an hour. Then she arrays herself in  an elaborate tea-gown and receives a  favored few ia her boudoir, where, ovei  a_ cup of tea, she assists to tear into  piecemeal portions the characters of hei  dearest friends. Another 'rest/ and again  the business of toilet is resumed. When  en grande tenue she either goes out to  dinner or entertains^ a large party of  gueste at her own table. A tete-a-tete  meal with her husband would appear to  her in the light of a positive calamity.  She stays up plaj'ing 'bridge' till two or  three o'clock in the morning and retires  to bed more or les3 exhausted, and can  only sleep with the aid of narcotics. She  resumes the same useless' existence and  perpetrates the same wicked waste of  time again the next day, and every day.  Her children she scarcely sees, and ^the  management of her house is entirely removed from her hands. The housekeeper .takes all the accounts to her husband,  who meekly pays the same, and lives foi  the most' part at his club or at the  houses of his various sporting friends.

For this purposer -  there is absolutely no medicine con'compare with  Baby's Own' Tablets.    These* ,  Tablets   speedily   relieve   and   promptly  ,  cure  all   stomach  and   bowel   troubles,  break up colds, check simple fevers, pre- '  vent croup, and allay the irritation accompanying "the cutting of teeth.   TheyA  are good for children of all  ages from  ,  birth  upwards," and are  sold  under a"  guarantee   to   contain   no -opiate   orT~  harmful drug.    All mothers  who have k  used   Baby's  Own Tablets  praise- them.,  and keep them in the house.   Mra.

'     ���   V.  A fortune-teller who has just retired  from business says that the majority of  her clients,1' were married women from  thirty-five to fifty years of age. Very  few unmarried women, excepting really  young ones, consulted her, she said. ll*  was the discontented, unhappy ones that  'came for consolation and hope. "They  ���wanted to be told that they would be  widows, and I told them, and they used  to go away radiant; but they didn't  'want to be told that they'd remain  widows; not they! Not the oldest,oi  plainest of tHiem, and to make them entirely hopeful I had to indicate another  husband���rather vaguely, of course. He  was already married, with this er that '  number of children, and it was evident  that my client had him already in her  eye, for she nearly always said, TTesj  that's him!' and gave,me details,about *  - him, and said she wa.9 sure 'things would  right themselves'���which, of course, re��  ferred to his wife being got rid of somen  how when her husband had gone to  glory." .  The Pope's Contemporaries.       '  Though born two months after the  end of 1809, the Pope may fairly be included among the big babies who made  that year the richest in births of the  nineteenth century. During the twelve  months from January 1 to fJeccmbcr 31,  1800, Gladstone, Bismai ck, Abraham Lin,  coin, Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett Brown.  ing, Darwin and Oliver Wendell Holmes  all first saw the light. Such a coincidence in appearance surely bespeaks tho  presence of genius in the atmosphere. In  the eighteenth century 1J09 was similarly memorable for the birth of Napoleon,  Wellington, Ney, Soult, Bourienne, Chateaubriand, Mehemet Ali, Cuiver, Hum-i  boldt and Castlereagh. The great. Birth  year of this century must be left fo*q  some chronicler in the next to note. Per��  haps it is 1903.  "This is the third postponemcn^yoii  have asked, Mr. Counsel," said' the  Judge, "and I warn you that unless you  can furnish a thoroughly good excuse  the case will at once proceed."  "Your Honor," replied the counsel,  "I simply ask a week's delay to enable  my client to look around aiid see fiowi  much money he can raise, in order ta  give me a clew to the amount of energy;  and talent, I am expected to use osi has  behalf."  "The case is postponed for one  week," said the Judge.���Cleveland  Plain Dealer. f-Wi  \2p  AT! IV     J-S. c,  ATI'RIJAY,    JULY,1    25     190;'.  !  5> ���  PICKED UP H&RE AND THERE.
