I  Behold my hands and my 1'eet, that It  la I myself.-St.  Luke,  xxtv.,  39.    ,  The above words suggest the subject of our recognition of departed  loved ones in ' the woild to come.  IThis subject is of interest at all times  ��nd touches well-nigh everyone.  Hardly any there arc but have buried  their dead; haidly any but have, shut  Off from the daily activities of their  Mills, a consecrated void; hardly any  ' but at times are earnestly asking,  "Shall we sec thebc dear absent ones  ���gain, and will there be some bond of  recognition between us?"  Now on this question we could  hardly expect the Word of God to say  much.   God would occupy us here with  t duty rather than with speculation, however ' tender and sacied. Not what  heaven is, but "how lo get lo heaven,  b the great problem before us. Wc  are given little of descitption, much of  direction. No map of that golden city  b provided, but on the narrow road  the cross ever and anon is set up as  a guidepost to point the way.   But al-  , though the burden of inspiration has  to do with the privileges and the requirements of this world, it gives us  ao empty consolation with-reference  to them who are.fallen asleep. In the  fint ' place, there is that pervading  , undertone which we detect everywhere.  We cannot explain it, wc cannot point  It out; but somehow, open the Bible  where we may, it "comforts ' us concerning our brtfthcr." , -  v,But, again, the recognition of those  Wre have known on earth is implied iii  -many of the fundamental declarations  of God's Word. We are to be held accountable, for'instance, for our dealings with those arouncl us. Can it,  then, be possible that cwe are not to  know those whom we have influenced  for good or HI?  Perhaps, however, the strongest ol  tho indirect teachings of the Bible on  thlf Stint is to be found in those  nUftioerless similitudes which describe  our state, here and hereafter, as one  of association. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a net cast into the sea and  enclosing a great multitude of fishes.  It is like a.supper furnished with  quests. It is a fellowship, a communion, a family, a household. Surely,  knit together by such ties, the members  of that kingdom must know each  other.  if" But we are not left to mere inferences and implications. The Bible asserts directly the doctiine of mutual  recognition hereafter. "Many shall  come from the east and from the west,  and shall sit down with Abraham and  Isaac and Jacob in the Kingdom of  God." , Of course, there would be no  significance in this statement if the  patriarchs are not to be known as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Again:���  ���"Ye shall see Abraham, Isaac and  Jacob and all the prophets in"the Kingdom of God." Says St. Paul to the  Thessalonians:���"What is our hope or  joy, or-crown of rejoicing? 'Are not  <ven ye in the presence of our Lord  Tesus Christ at His coming?" Again,  he says to them:���"Now, we beseech  you, brethren., by the coming of our  Lord Jesus Christ, and.' our gathering  tog-ether unto Him." Again once more:  ���"I would not have you to b'e ignpr-  >ant, brethren, concerning them which  sre asleep, that ye sorrow not as others who have no hope." _ The hope referred to here is- obviously that of  meeting again. Many more allusions  of like character might be drawn from  the epistles of St Paul. But it will  suffice us to turn from them now and  to consider only the further statement  of our text. And were that statement alone it would be enough, for it  tells us that the glorified body of our  Lord was recogni/.cd; and He was our  first fruits, and as He rose so shall we  rise. There was, indeed, about Him  an unearthly lustre, but the wounds  were yet visible, the same eyes looked  out upon the Apostles, the same lips  spake to them, the same hands blessed them, albeit a wondrous glory  illumined all. There was that about  Him which dazzled and bewildered.  Not at first, did Mary and His disciples know Him.   While they sought  the gardener or would go a-fishing or  walked sorrowful and hopeless by the  wayside their eyes were darkened; but  when they turned their spiritual gaze  upon Him, then they knew Him. Then  fcifary said, "Rabboni;" then   St. John  cried, "It is the Lord"; then   doubting Thomas  believed;  then  repentant  Peter sank at His feet.   In like manner it  shall    be with    us  and ours.  We shall be changed.   For corruption,  there shall be incorruption, for weak-!;  ness power, for dishonor glory, for the -j  natural the spiritual body.   And may-1  hap, too, the  unseen    struggles   and  sufferings of the past shall be registered upon our faces, and thus our real  characters    express    themselves;    the  things    which     were      hidden    comer  abroad, and the good deeds    done in'  ^secret"b"e"toreveF YewaTcled "openly.  But' our identity, our appearance, our  immortal individuality shall yet remain and we be kimwn to each other  by many infallible proofs Abraham  shall remain Abiaham, Daniel shall  still be Daniel, the Good Shepherd  shall still- call His sheep by name, and  they who have met in this life shall  meet again in that. An Isaac shall rejoin Rebecca, a David shall go to the  child- who could not come to him, a  Mary and. a Martha shall greet their  brother, and lhc tears of a Rachel  weeping for her cluldicn shall be wiped  away. < ,  For horses fagged out'after a tiling  journey, there is no safer1 or, better  tonic than a "white drink,", made by  stirring a pint of oatmeal in a pail of  water off which the chill has been *ak-  en. White drinks of this kind are not  only good thirst quenchers, but they  also seem to act as restoratives, ana  are found veiy effective in enabling animals to regain the "tonicity" of constitution lost either tluough illness or  through undergoing severe exertion.   ���  ' The Latest Machine Milker. ,  An improved milking machine is reported to be making some progress in  Australia. It is a modification of an  English machine, about three hundred  of which were in use in Victoria. After some months it was noticed that  the cows began' to shrink. '  One of the dairymen, a practical mechanic, put an inspection glass in the  rubber tube leading from the teats to  the can, when the mystery was solved.  In the English machine the four teut  cups unite at the bottom into one rubs,  which has to carry away ^11 the milk,  and through which, at 'the same time,  the vacuum pressure is applied to the  teats.' The result of this arrangement  is that, when there is a^full supo'y of  milk coming from the cow, the vacuum  cannot -work properly. The "pulsation  is caused by letting a little air iniD the  can every second, and this air rushes  against the milk, causing it to surge  backwards and forwards in the tube.  After a little while the milk, instead  of running freely into the can, is actually driven up the teat cups1 against  the cow's teats.' The final result of  this peculiar action is that the milking operation is impeded,-while the  surging of the milk up against the  teats so incommodes the cow that she  holds up the rest of her milk.  The result of this discovery was that  within a few weeks all of the English  machines were discarded. That dairyman, however, who discovered the  cause of the failure, Mr. Alexander  Gillies of Terang, believing that it  could be overcome, at once set to woik  to do so. After numberless experiments  on his own herd of eighty cows, he set  up, some three~months ago, a ma=nine  which is claimed to be a perfect milking machine, which he has protected  by patents all over Australasia and  abroad. 'Recognizing that a pufoiting  vacuum .was the most feasible method  of extracting the milk, he was also  convinced that having the one tube  only for both milk and pressure was  impracticable. His machine, therefore,  has two light rubber tubes, goiig sh'e  by side direct from the milk can to  the teats. " ,.  The capacity of a machine winch  milks two cows at a time is about sixteen cows an hour. As one man can  easily manage two machines the swing of labor is marked.  Importance of Cleanliness.   >  We do not intend to repeat any  further how essential a feature of  successful dairying is the observance  of proper cleanliness, but at the last  meeting of the Eastern Ontario  Dairymen Dr. Connell gave forth  some fresh" figures * on the question  which afford further confirmation of  the position held by all progressive  dairy workers. .     <  The doctor gave the results oi analysis of milk taken from'cows under  the different conditions, as to cleanliness In one case���where the cow  was brushed before milking, the udders wiped, the stable kept in a'  thoroughly sanitary condition, and  the person of the milker was also  clean���-th* milk still showed 4.3��o  bacteria to sixteen drops of milk. In  another case milk was taken from  cows the udders of which had been  wiped, which were kept in a fairly  clean barn, that were milked into  clean pails (but pails that had not  been scalded), and by men whose  hands had been wiped, but not wasn-  cd In this case the number of bacteria was 15,500. In another ca.se,  where cows were milked under ordinary conditions which prevailed on the  ordinary farm, the number of bacteria  was 30,000 to sixteen drops. The bacteria found in the milk taken from  cows under the best possible conditions as to cleanliness were, it is believed, for the mos' part just inside  the teat before milking began. The  old practice of squirting the first  stream of milk outside the pail has a  scientific basis to rest upon.  Absolute cleanliness in the stable,  cooling of the milk sifter milking,  sterilization of utensils by scalding,  cool curing of cheese, and no more  sending home of whey in milk cans,  are pointers which may also be  strongly insisted upon.  In touching on the question of water  supply, it was stated that no factory  should be considered properly equipped that is without pure water.���Tho  Maritime Farmer.

',  Had the Advantage.        ���     ���  The Kansas papers tell a story of an  incident in PresiJent Hayes' visit to  that State in 1879. President Roosevelt's visit is the occasion for'tclling it,  and, had it happened to the present occupant of the White House, it would  .have ami ->cd him beyond anything else  in his ei ire trip. Mr. PJajcs was engaged in a specchinaking and handshaking tour. At.Hutchinson a large  crowd had gathered lo greet him.'In  Hutchinson at ,1110 time was one "Bill"  Graham, a "cattleman .much given"to  the use of intoxicating liquor.- "Bill"  toined the crowd without knowing what  It was all about.' He fell in line and  gradually appioachcd the President,  who was standing on the lower step of  his car and shaking-hands with all who  caine. As "Bill" came near, the'Presi-  dent reached over,'grasped him by the  hand, shook it vigorously and said :���  "My friend, '"am delighted to see you."

"The best of all beauty-making foods  are fresh fruits and fresh vegetables,"  said Prof, H. W. Wilc'y, the" famous  United States- Government chemist,  who is incidentally a skilled physician.  "They contain relatively little nourish-'  ment���a woman could hardly live on  them exclusively for any length of  time���but for reasons which as yet  are in >erfectly understood, they possess extraordinary value as lealth-giv-  ers. If you want bright eyes and a  clear complexion, eat plenty of them."  The fact is that most fresh vegetables and fruits are nearly all water.  Spinach is 92 1-2 per cent, water, cabbage is 77 per cent, water, beets are 88  per cent, water, carrots are 91 per cent,  water, cauliflower is 91 per cent,  water, cucumbers are 96 per cent,  water, egg plant is 93 per cent, vater,  onions are 78 1-2 per cent, water, tomatoes are 96 per cent, water, green corn  (cut from the cob) is 81 1-2 per cent,  water, and celery is 94r.i-2 per cent,  water. Fruits arc pretty nearly all  water, though the banana is relatively  rich in starch.  Fruits and vegetables,, then, are of  no great use in supporting the human  body. Their value is mainly.medicinal, and as beauty-makers they are  'the chief among foods. It is almost  impossible to cat too much of them :n  a fresh state, though, of course, the  diet must include a reasonable proportion of those substances, such as meat,  which furnish blood and muscle tissue.  Perfect Disappearance, ~  A     By Talbot'Smith.'  T  priHE last hopeJof saving Win thro j  N   Lylo's life was gone.

And promise me that if I escape  no ono of my family will make the slightest effort to find me, or follow me." .  , "It's all right about the ten thousand," said Harry j "but I don't understand the other request. ;Isn't it a little  hard?" , "     ���  "In the fchadow of the gallows," Win-  throp   replied, "what, can be.hard?    1  want to save.myself and you from that  shame.    I must ohoo*e between  death  and what is harder to tear than death-  exile, and eternal separation   from  my  own.   If I escape death by my own hand,  it will be only by disappearing as-com-,  pletely as if the earth5swallowed me.   I,  choose to disappear,' and I shall nevei  return.   Some whisper of my condition  may reach 'you now and then, but by  those who are dear to me I shall never  again be seen."  The necessity of so hard  a lot ought to be plain "to you."  . "It is and it^isn't," said. Harry, distressed.   "Oan't you 'leave a little^hope  of seeing you some time in the' future?" \  '. "Out of the question.' .You know what  a'search will be made for me'.   I "shall  need the cunning of Satan to escape, and.  I think I have it.- But'the one condition  of success is the ignorance of you-all,- the  perpetual and willing ignorance as   to  what has become of me.   I have learned'  one thing:   that escaped prisoners   arc/  caught again 'because they, cannot give  up all connection with the past;  with-  the people, the scenes, the memories, the  habits to which they were accustomed.  So they leave a little path from their  hiding place to the past for clever detectives to find.   Look at that bright boy  watching us yonder.   He is the smartest  detective on the force, and his present  office is to see that I do not die or escape until hanged." .  '  ."Then you are to go away for good,  said Hairy, with increasing gloom.   "It  will be the eame, as if you were buried.  "Just  that,  bat  minus, the   shame,"  "said Winthrop, with great satisfaction.  "Don't quarreA over good luck."  "I won't, but it feels like death. We  must be resigned, though', and I give you  my promise."  "Here, then, ayj your instructions.  From this time on act as if the hanging  were to take place one week from today. Tell mother nothing. When the  aews of my flight reaches you, look  upon me es dead and buried in Newton  churchyard. In fact, it won't help you  to act otherwise. My plan of escape ex-  eludes you all. If-it did not, or if  through weakness I let you share in the  secret, I'might as well die at once.  Good-byl"   *  Winthrop was in good spirits at the  close of the visit, and kept himself in the  same mood for the next "few days, in  spite of the trying-scenes of farewell  with his friends and relatives. Young  Detective Lord watched him in great  uneasiness, for his reputation depended  upon the hanging of this clever scien of  a famous family. He could not rid himself of a presentiment that the execution  would never'take place, no matter what  care tho authorities might exercise. In  tho history of criminal trials none had  given bo much trouble as Lyle's to'get a  conviction. The case had not only been  tiled in the courts and the newspapers,  it had also a private hearing in judicial  and executivo chambers. The Lyle family, wealthy and powerful, was bent on  preventing by any means the disgrace  of the scaffold. It was a great triumph  for justice when influence, intrigue, corruption, and the skill of tho lawyers  came to naught in court and elsewhere.  Even public opinion, won to sympathy  by the brilliant struggle vhioh Lyle made  for his life, by his talent, his spirit, hia  beauty of face and manner, his steady  and solemn declarations of innocence,  was resisted and overcome by the officer*  of justice... Detective Lord had followed  the struggle in its seoret details, and  was oonvincod that Lyle would never be  Have a Laugh.

The late discovery in strawberries  of salicylic acid, a specific in acute  rheumatism, has seemed to confirm the  idea that these berries are a desirable  article of food for rheumatics. The  effect of the fruit cannot be due to the  salicylic acid, however, as less than the  hundredth of a grain per pound is  found.  "I don't understand ,how E. H.

It "was sure -to ��� fall u��Sh|  liimy as it had fallen on" every official1  connected with the stubborn^criminal.  The care taken lo prevent a prisoner  imder sentence of death from escape or'  'suicide  is  very   thoiough   in   fnst-olas��  prisons, but it reminds one of the care  taken by railroad corporations to  prevent accidents.   No.matter how perfect,  the system, it depends on m"en for suo-  cess; and engineers'will drink, switchmen  fall asleep, telegraph operators miss the"  right word, and b'rakemen fail to swing,  a  warning  lantern.      Winthrop"   Lyle,'  counting more on the weakness of human nature in others than its strength  in himself, escaped by the simple process  of overpowering the deathwatch, looking  him up in a cell, and walking out of.thei  prison by a path which cost four thou-'  sand dollars to make.    Lyle computed!  that if the road, two feet wide and three!  hundred .long, were carpeted with onel.  dollar bills,���it would take four thousand,  .of them to cover the space.   Therefore  he offered the deathwatch that sum for'  luck, and so left the great prison fo��-.  ever.   Every one "remembers the stir ore-;  sited by his disappearance.   The officials,'  mad  with Tage  and shame,  really  e��-j -  haustcd the means at their command to,  find the criminal.   Lord, dismissed in dis-,  grace,  as     publio   ,opinion     demanded,,  threatened  the   chief   with   a suit   for  damages.   He regained his place, which'  meant nothing, for he was left in idleness and obscurity.   Nor would ho consent ..to that punishment.   Tho ohief fl��-  'ally appointed him to'a place in the pup-  suit of Lyle, on  condition  thai  it re- '  maincd a seoret, and that his abstention'  from interference with tho regular plan  of'pursuit be albsolute.      ,   '      ' " -  'The-plan* came  to  naught within  %-.  year. 'Lord held on six months longer,'  studying with infinite patienco clews, a*-1  tual and "theoretic, that promised something.   Lyle had'vahished 'into thin air.  Ilnd he dissolved into elementary gases  nt the prison gates, he could not havo  left less trace of his path into the world.  Not one'clew ever led to'any result, net  even to a decent theory of his escape.  ,'Lord continued the, pursuit out of pure  fascination  for a mystery which' over-_  taxed his powers, and took the edge off'  his natural shrewdness.' After resigning,"  ,and going into an orchestra as first violin���for faith in his abilities finally deserted  him���this fascination  accompanied him, and proved a great boic to_ his  .friends from the endless speculations it  Jed him to indulge.   Over liis mantel lie '.  kept a fine  photograph  of . Winthrop'  Lyle, and the slim, hard figure, the,pale,f  thin, high-bred" face," the severe expres/,  sion and   dark   eyes   had 'a  prominent -1  place in his sleeping and waking dreams...  In the end, no one.took any interest in  his cherished mystery, save the' boy who t  played the 'cello in the orchestra.  It was always a great relief to Lord  to turn from constant brooding on' the -  tints of Lyle's pictuie, to- the society'of  the young ..musician j for Wilhelm' Ganz  -was - a eof t-boned,Vfeasy-going ''-Gei man,  slow in speech and movement, "given to  beer and laughter, fond' of his wife, baby  'and1 'cello,"and fonder ofifthe- Lylcprob-'.  ���lem than Lord hinwelf. l , .* ,���-...- �� '.. .  ^ When the boarding-house,, the day; <  dreams and. the' world grew wearisome,  the, detective went over to his,frien'd'*��  house, and spent a Sunday evening in  the Ganz parlor. It( was" a cosy home,  and its owners, its pictures, its veryv furniture, spoke of. ease and comfort. Wil-  helm was fair-skinned, fat and jollyr ��nd  loved to sit with his baby|or his 'cello at  his left "hand, a mug of Bavaxian'beer at  his right. His wife and child were plump  and rosy, and even .'the' gray professor _  father, with his habits'of-study and  solemn expression, had a fat and contented air, about him. i Not having <been ,.  long in the country, they spoke English  with a gentle'accent. German pictures  hung on ^ the wall, '��id German .colons  were everywhere. Frau Ganz could net  abide American1 cooking,'and her table  was^ever dressed out with the seasoned  dishes of the Fatherjand. When thoy  "sung songs or-indulged in old memories,  the little village --near Munich was the  tlicme. The one promise to baby to induce him to be good was a visit to Munich when he had come to be a man.  .Among these simple ..people Lord might  'talk liia hobby to death, and be listened  ��to with reverence.  ' "It's so nice to have a clever detee-  itive speak by the hour of a great miir-  'derer and villain," Frau Ganz said to  her neighbors. The professor did not pay  much attention, while Wilhehn was en  tireless listener, and had many speculations on the plan of escape used by  jLyle.  i "No doubt ho is dead," said Wilhehn  lone day." The remark 'brought out a now  'faot.  I "Why do you think so ?" Lord asked. (  1 "He'could not have fooled the best defectives in the land, and so many of  them. He died, probably by his own  'hand, and his relatives buried him se-  'cretly, bo that there might be no mow  scandal over the poor devil."     "��� '  "But I know that ho was not dead a,  year and three months after liis flight/'  said Lord. "I <read a note sent by 'hup.  to hia mother.

You see, I watched the house  of his mother, and read their lettcvs,  their' newspapers, everything to get a<  clew.   So he was alivo.   But where?"  "Wonderful," sa�� Wilhehn. "OouW  you not track that note to its writer!";  \ Lord threw up his hand9 in disgust, i  / "The letter was postmarked Neer.  York, the paper was American.

'  No advertisement for any town  equals an an ay of belching smokestacks and the whirr of machinery.  They talk for themselves.  ��� Iuv-Atlin., wheie we have such  - a terribly long wintei, the iutroduct-  ' ion ' of this Electiic Light Plant  comes as a blessed boon. Its" general adoption by the citizens will  naturally<reduce the fne risks, promote cleanliness and comfort iu  homes > and stores, aud be more  heallhfur'in all lespects than the  use of coal oil, there being absolutely no noxious gases evolved as in  the 'case'of oil illuminants. Best  of'all,it shows visitens and intending iiiv��stoiS( that we are a 'progressive communit}',' up with the  ' times and with plenty of confidence  . iu the stability of the District.  ��� We understand that the enterprising gentlemen who are behind  the ventuie have fixed on a most  reasonable scale of charges for  consumers, much less than that in  vogue at "Whitehorse and about  on  a par with Skagway rates.  We hope some arrangement may  be reached, with Govermental assistance or otherwise, by which a few  arc lights -may be placed on our  principal stieets. ;  Tbe utility of these during the  long winter nights would be undeniable and the sooner some public  action is taken to secure them the  better for all concerned. Their installation will greatly help the fire  brigade when theif valuableservices  are required in the hitherto dark  hours, will act as a deterrent to  people with a felonious turn of  mind and promote social intercourse  aud good fellowship.  Cleanliness being next lo godli.  ncss it goes without saying that  the Steam Laundry will he extensively patronized, in fact since opening, they have had all they can  possibly attend to, and this is bound,  in the nature of things lo continue,  as it is universally conceded that  machine washing is as superior  to the old hand methods as Electric  Light is to coal oil.  We heartily welcome those enterprises into our midst and confidently bespeak for them the reward  hey are surely entitled lo.

(From the   Chronicles  of Uncle  Ike)  No, Z haven't forgotten the time Lacal  Union Number One of the Amalgamated  Society of Housewives of British North  America  went  out  on   strike.    It  camo  right home to me, Mra. Ike being a member of that late unlamented organization.  It -was off day at the shop.   I'd calou-  ? lated to take Mrs. Ike out for 'a drive,'  i     but   she   refused.    "I'm   ever   so   happy  1'      !*hat you should have thought of it, Ike,"  ehe eays, "and you know I'd far rather  ,  i      <jro ���with you than to the" meeUngr, but,"  says she, "my obligation as a member of  1"'    ' the Housewives calls for my attendance,  ���xcept when physically impossible."  ,  "Well."

"Wherej T" I asks, pretending to be  ' anxious. "I don't foel drawn up anywhere, and, moreover," I went on,  "s'long as my horso sense Is In good  i working order we'll not worry much about  > the other senses except the seirje of  taste."  '., "Thinking of your supper already," says  . Mrs. Ike. i'JuBt like a man!" And then  ~^ehe kissed me, hoped I wouldn't get lone-  ,;iy before she came back, and departed.  1 V About the time she was due for supper  m'-��� I (thought to myself, "How'd It do for  "J-' me -to have it ready for her when sho  11 ��� comes in," and I was so pleased with  ��.'.,* myself for thlnking.of such a thing that  pi- / I almost allowed it to stop at the thought.  However, after a severe mental struggle,  'as tho story books say, and a good deal  of searching, I succeeded in getting the  '���table set, and had just put a kettleful of  ���water on.the gas-stove when Mrs. Ike  leame in.

With  that I took the frying pan from a hook I  at the top of the cellar stairs and managed to knock down a few other pans.  "What are you going to do?" aays Mrs.  Ike.

Needing money, he had broken  into a neighbor's house, and, with the  skill of an expert burglar, had forced  open the safe. After taking away money  enough to meet immediate requirements,  he concluded by setting fire to the house.  As the judge is a nobleman, the sentence  must bo sanctioned by the Czar before it  can be enforced.    -  ��� ���>     ~-^~-^  The *>nly direct descendant of Robert  Burns is 'a. clerk in a Chicago shipping  office.

The principle  of the art'of disappearing is simple: Cuti  yourself off from the past as completely  ���as if you had been diowned in mid-  ocean. The method depends upon that  'principle, and, for each ca3e, varies only  '   in trifling circumstances."  "Is that.all?" Loid growled. "Why,  jthat's what they all do,' and most" of  them are caught as easy, as rats with  "traps and cheese."  "That's what they all do," echoed Wilhelm, in a lofty tone. "Are you sure of  that? Did Lyle bite at youreheese? Let  me show you what the principle forces a  man to do, when it is successfully carried out.

Lord still studied the photographs with  interest.  "I begin to' undeintnnd you," he said.  "Thero''is moro sense in your art than 1  thought/ You believe, then, that Lylo  disappeared in this wondeiful way. How  do you think he did it?"  ,t "That's another story," Wilhelm replied as he finished his beer. "Everyone  uses t'ho same method, of course, but tho'  details are dilTeient. I am satisfied that  you see the truth of the principle, and  how simple and deep it is. If I get any  ideas on Lylo's particular way of doing  tho change act, I shall tell you." "  "���1 want to hear them," said Lord.  "It's a new peep/into that cursed mystery, which puzzles me more the i*ore I  sttidy It" a      ,'.     - - -,  When he was leaving the house an  hour later, the old piofessor mot him on  the street, with ng anxious face. "Dot  Lyle myzdery,',' salu he, in his ponderous  tocent, "dhroubles -Wilhelm doo' much,  und it vould bieaee me 'ercadLv if vdu  vsuldt bring him to anoder subject won  und qvlok, since it'is^not to any man  safo und brofltable to dvell doo long on  dose human myzderies of crime,- nefer to  be found oud, sbecially ven he hess a vife  und child, ubon him alone depending vor  Bubbort. You are Wilhelm's goot friendt,  und I speak to you as such."'  "Gad, I noticed.it myself," said Lord,  "particularly' when,, he shouted, "Arrest  me, I am Winthrop Lyle.' He made me  think of Lyle himself then, I tell you.  But you are right, professor, to warn  me. I've seen these theories get hold of  men and land them in the'asylum. 'So,  just as soon'as Wilhelm works ofF hi-i  thoughts on Lyle's escape, I'll never mention the infernal thing again. We'll talk  ��bout Africa and Greenland. .The cas��  has me nearly crazy. But, that's a won-  derfuLtheory of Wilhelm's, r" the' same,  if it could only be carried out." ,l  "If >it only ."goudt/' roared'the professor, as he went in. "y *    (  A few'nights later.Wilhelm was ready  to apply his theory to the escape of  Winthrop Lyle, but he had lost some of  his interest in the matter; and his round  face, a trifle flushed^with beer,' beamed  too comfortably., for mental activity.  "It is a great pity," he began, '/that a  sound and rational theory does not always'fit well into ordinary life. There  in'sure to be one "hitch or another. \I  have had trouble explaining Lyle's disappearance, according to the rules of the  art. But you must not laugh at me. 1  firmly believe that this unfortunate man,  who left no tracks in the road he traveled, escaped by means of the principle  and method I have described. No other  theory-fits the case. When it "became  certain that either escape or suicide was  his one refuge from the gallows, he made  arrangements with his friends to bribe  the prison guards, that he might get  easily to this,city. You told >me(that  yourself. But, he also made arrangements for a final separation from his  friends. Knowing that successful flight  depended ton a strict adherence to the  rules'of disappearing, he must have ordered his relatives to make no search for  him, to look upon him as de.id. Needing  money to carry out his plans, he had  them place a good sum where he could got  it without trouble. When all was jeadv  he slipped away after midnight, took the  first train to the city, and went straight  to the old man and woman with whom  he intended to take refuge. ,  "In the reports of his trial, it came  out that ho had done charitable woik on  the East Side, among the Geimans, Poles  and Bohemians. I assume that he had  there made the acquaintance of tlfe persons needed for liis purpose, a respect  able German couple, let us say, needy  faithful, ignoiant of his past, under obligations to him, and ready to do any hon  est thing that would secure comfort foi  their old age. I know a scon* such thai  would be glad to accept the proposition"  made by Lyle to Jlerr Schneidei and liU(  wife���let Schneider be their ii'ime. Hi  offered to pay thorn a good sum down  and so much a month while I hey lived  to be adopted as their son Frank, jmi  icturncd fiom California, sick almost tr  death. Tlicy accepted. Frank' Schneidei  went to bed ut onee as a sick nun, aw1  wan not secu again on the sliocts of New  York for three months. The neighbor  got no glimpse of him for a month, bui  hi** mother went about oil that time tell  ing hoi cronies and fiiends of her son'=  ipturn, keeping them infoimed of hie  pi ogress to health, letting thorn peep  into his bedioom, and promising her  maiden friends her influence in coaxing  Frank to marry ono of them within the  year.  "You can imagine what Lyle was do  ing during this month of sickness. H(  was recovering from the strain of trial  and prison, learning the German language ao the Schneiders spoke it, getting used to a German diet, making him  self familiar with Bavaria, with the na-  tivo village, tho relatives and friends of  his new parents, and in general fitting  himself for tlie part he had to play.  Moreover, he was doing hiB best tp get  f*t tp glib the rpugh bloom of * beer-  arlhker,~and to���*bleach dark hair?'eyeS;  brows, and Ibeard to yellow. When'i'atj  tbe end of a month he could sit up antl'?  receive visitors, his German was passable, and his appearance sufficiently rude  to suit his surroundings When he ap  peared on the street he had become easygoing Frank Schneider in earnest, arid  every soul' in the waid was willing to  swear he was Schneidei's son. His mother's countrywomen had known him asc a  boy, and could now see in him proper  lesemblanees to his parents! By that  time he spoke German well, and English  not at all. He was fat, and roughly  dressed. His hair was like mine, he  wore glasses, his walk was lazy, his manners bad He read no English books, he  ate only as do the Bavarians/and a German neighbor taught him to write in a  queer hand, which Frank Schneidei made  hia own. Three months so changed him  in appearance and fact that lie forgot,  except in sleep, or when alone, that he  had ever been Winthrop Lyle Then_ he  ventured out on the streets of the city,  went to theaters and bulls, got a job aa  a bartender in a German saloon, and  kept it a month until he knew the ways  and'the customois of such a place  "He thought ifwns time, then, to get  out of the country. So his father nnd  mother announced to the ncighbois then  intention to visit their native land foi  three months, and also to stay there foi  good if they liked it Being poor, they  took a steerage passage jnjihe bigjjteam-  er, and Frank went withT"them7"getting  aboard under the very noses of the do  tcctives, who still watched for him In!  their native village the Schneiders made  quito an impression, and then son was  thought,to have* a good memory and a  great love for the country of his childhood. , No doubt, Lyle put all that he  had learned from Iih paients to the teat  during 'his stay in Ilofberg , The Bavarians said,'.with delight .'He speaks Gcr  man as if he had ne\ei been in Ameiiea!'  He told them stones of his Childhood, in  wliich he had been the heio, described  well-known scenes, asked after lelatives  who were dead, and mentioned some1 of  their peculiarities' Piobably not "oven a  B&vauan detective could have pierced  through his 'disguise aftei a three  months' stay in Hofberg, wheie he taught  the innkeepers'to mix drinks in the^Am-  trtetm style. -T Evciyone said he was  truly a native and a ciedit, and should  not think of returning to America This  must have been his own xntention at first,  and (he knew that he was violating a  chief rule of the art of disappeai mg by  not changing country as well as per-r  sonality. However, the East Side is not  so far from'Europe, and he concluded  tha'��� on he East Side he would live and  die. ^So the Schneiders returned to their  old quarteis, and Frank went back   >  dis .old bartending with a fine stock of  Itories from the Fatherland, "and a higher ditch' between him and the^past,  which lived only in his memory. '  ; "He spoke, English now witto a Ger-  BaiT accent, which came to his lips without effort. He enjoyed his new life. It  was pleasant in itself, and like heaven,  When compared with tiie prison, the gallows, the grave, and the awful Shame.  After six months of study and practice  In his new character, he had no longer  to remind himself constantly of the part'  he was playing. It had become bis nature. He kept out all thought "of Winthrop Lyle,-trying to~think of,him and  bis story as ono thinks of a character in  a novel. ~ Finally, he chose a good girl  to be his wife, a girl fiom the village of  Hofberg. She 'was pretty and sensible,  and loved him, though she felt it lowered  her to marry a Iwwtender. That amused  him very much, but it fell in with his  plans, and they were married. That's  the end of my theories. - *��� "���<  "Eight months from the date of his  escape he had become another man. You  can see, what the art of disappearing did  lor him in that time; what must it not  have added in the sixteen months that  have since fled?- No .doubt he has pros-*  pered in business, and now* owns" a beer-  garden or a brewery. In (his dreams, and  in tlie quiet mom.en.ts_ before*' sleep, he  was in the habit of "recalling the past,  the scenes of the trial, the long days in  prison. But marriage and success must  Jiave done away with that. When he  got into politics, and had a crowd of  clients to distract 'him every day, his  past must have disappeared, even from  his dreams. Father and mother, brothers  find sisters " >   ���    .  "Even the murdered wife," whispered  Frau Ganz.  "He never murdered her," said Wil-  Ihelm, in the same tone. "All may have  vanished in the commonplace routine of  his life. He has probably observed every  rule of the art but two. You say ho  cent word to his parents of his safety  and happiness. That was an error, but  without consequences. A second en or is  his stay in his native country; that may  be as harmless as the first. It would  not avail him now to reveal hio identity.  IIo would be denied by the Lyles, and  nut in confinement by his fiiends. Probably he has mot and exchanged kindly  words with you, Lord, and his persecutors. I have no doubt, when he thinks,  of his triumph over you, he feels like  saying, 'I am Winthrop Lyle,' and defying you to track him even then. Is it  not possible? Oould you find him in the  person I have described to you? Is he  not hidden as securely as if he we're  dead?"  "Not a doubt of it," said Lord, promptly. "If ho followed your plan he is'safe  from friend and enemy, and safo from  himself."  ' Wilhelm and his father exchanged  glances  "But, great heavens!" cried the ex-  detectivc, "what suffering that poor devil must have endured to wife himself  off the face of the earth in that way!"  "It would kill me, I think," eaid Wilhelm, taking his baoy from the'cradle to  kiss him good-night. "If I bad to loave  these, and turn myself into another being, as Lyle did, what sorrow and pain I  would have to endure! As for Lyle,. I  think you are right in saying that one of  his spirit must have suffered fiercely."  . ypau Gtons took ber baby to his crib In  ���MfiHH-Pr.bf^'-j-fmy."  tfwordsl^t^il^  ��the;b��tok��rooh;  ^ves*|Epr3|  WoSlfthot "|a^t Jv  he "had grpwnlr^pal'e  'had risen !to!j;pace1tt^^^^  fessor sho b^^iislhwd^atMliislSonftaiid?  shrugged Wstshoulderslfdr^Lo^;;!^  "Fiercely;"��l;$i'6^  helm.
