Football Match,  The football match last Wednesday,  the 20th, , at Cumberland ' Recreation  Grounds, between Union and Sparrow  Hawk teams, resulted in a victory for the  Union boys, the score standing 4 to o.  The play commenced at 5:15 and lasted  one hour: As soon as ball was placed,  the Union team carried it to Navy goal,  and after sharp shooting on goal by  Lockhart ancl Tommy Whyte, the ball  was passed to Strang, and scored. The  --econd goal was scored by Lockhart;  third goal by Sandy Walker, and fourth  goal by Lockh.rt..  On the Union side Capt. Lockhart,  Thos. Whyte, and Sandy Walker played  a brilliant game as forwards. Hudson  and Gartly did some good playing as  half backs. The navy team put up a  yood game. They had won 7 out of 9  ^ames played this season, the two games  lost being .vith the Imperiuse and Union  teams. The Union team with practice  under guidance of present captain are  liable to hold their own with any team  in the province.  The Union.team consisted of T. Anderton, Fred Marshall, Richard Grimes,  Walter Whyte, Jack Bennie, Tommy  Hudson, Tommy Whyte, Robt. Strang,  Alex. Walker, O. Gartley, and Wm.  Lockhart, captain.

'A special report on the wheat crops  of the United State... issued on Monday, places the yield at 530,000,000  bushels, or 13.97 bushels to thc acre.

After trying various  remedies, and consulting several doctors,  without obtaining any relief, I was ad-  Tised to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil. I  warmed the Oil and poured a little of it  into my.ear, and before rone-haif the bottle was used my heating was completely  restored. I have heard of other cases of  deafness being cured by the use of this  medicine."  Words, of Wisdom.  '    There is no education like adversity.

Thc "grand old man"  was born in Liverpool, Dec. ������������������._���������, 1809,  and, as tilings look now, he bids fair to  welcome tbe dawn of the twentieth  ���������jentury. If he survives till next year he  can participate in the centenary celebration .if tho Irish rebellion. As he come.  of a sturdy race, thc chances ' are that  ho will live even beyond his' 90th birth.-  tlny.  Ha warden Castle, thc home of this  groat political ''hermit," a. ho is sometimes called, lies about six ���������uilus cast of  Che.-i.e_. Hero on ihe hill, overlooking  the valley of the beautiful., Deo, in a  picturesque park of some TOO acres, Mr.  Gladstone is spending the remaining  years of his eventful career. Among his  own countrymen ho is regarded a.s a  "secular pope," although he is by no  means as closely confined ;is the distinguished "Prisoner of tho "Vatican."  Mr. Gladstone has taken up his abode  practically in the gateway 'to Wales,  perhaps because ho lias .so many admirers  among the Welsh. Then, too, he has for  his neighbor the Duke pf Westminster,  who lives only a few miles away ac  Eaton Hall, and owns half of Chester  and a good part of the city of London.'  If it bo true that extremes meet, and if  all the gossip be .rue that 1 havo heard  here, then the richest peer and tho poorest  statcnian in tho United Kingdom live  side by side, says a correspondent in the  New York Advertiser. It is no secret  chat Mr. Gladstone has very limited  means at his disposal. Hawardcn Castle  belongs to his wife, having been inherited from her father. Even while  , holding his first Premiership the veteran  statesman had to sell a valuable collection of china in order to make both ends  meet.'  The first place of interest on the way  to Hawarden is the little parish church  where Mr. Gladstone reads thc prayers  on Sunday. It is built in the early English stylo of architecture, and has nothing  remarkable about ic other than being  the , place'where the most distinguished  man in Great Britain worships. Every  Sunday, rain or shine, when at  Hawarden, the great* statesman is found  in his scat within the chancel of the little  church. His place is on the front bench,  which is fitted up with a rubber air  cushion, and contains a prtfvor book and  Bible.   , '  Bur. it is not .ho same Gladstone that5.  saw in the House of Commons some ten  years ago. To-day his form is bent wiLh  age and he holds tlie prayer book close  to his eyes. Moreover his hearing is impaired, so that he must use his hand as  a kind of car trumpet. Nor is his voice  so strong as thou.  His day is opened and- closed with  pjaycr, and "whoa the cares of state have  pressed hardupoi4. him he has gone to his  "secret closer.'' many times in the course  of 24 hours. It is a well-known fact that  during a Cabinet crisis he went to church.  ��������� no less than three times in one day. The  great British statesman in this respect  is something like our own Benjamin  Franklin, who, during a critical period  in the framing of our constitution,  moved that the convention seek Divine  assistance. And, as if to encourage the  ex-Premier in appealing to the Almighty  for aid at all times, there is this text, in  his bedroom hanging over the mantelpiece:  "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace  whose mind it stayed on thee."  The Gladstone family, which represents  three generations, sits immediately  behind the head of thc ; house, while the  servants havtj seats near the choir. The  little church is filled every Sunday, many  visitors coming for the purpose of seeing  and bearing the foremost statesman in  Great Britain performing the humble  service of reading prayers.  The Gladstone home is about a quarter  of a mile away. The road winds through  a beautiful park- of chestnut, oak, ash  and walnut trees. On the'way you pass  the ruins of the old castle, consisting of  a circular keep, the top of which commands a good view of the Dec valley.  The land is not cultivated, as is-the case  at Eaton Hall, but remains in its natural  Condition. Hawarden Castle is decidedly  modern in appearance, and is surmounted  by a high terrace. It is a typical English manor, and contains-Mr. Gladstone's  valuable working library. Here the  statesman spend-4 his days and nights in  study. New books pour in upon him by  every mail, and no one in Great Britain  is better.posted in regard to what is passing in the literary'world than the hermit  of Hawarden.  The average day at thc castle is passed  substantially as follows: Mr. Gladstone  wakes ;i. 7.'.0 o'clock and has a light  breakfast served him. in his room. He  generally mak..?- it a point to rise ab JO  o'clock, after reading in bed a couple of  hours, and .hoti. goes through his mail.  As ho does nut .employ a secretary, this  takes some little time. Very soon, however, he has a pack of postal cards ready  for mailing, for letters are rarely Written  in those Litter days.. Lunch is now  served,., after which he reads till -1  o'clock4, and the remainder of thc evening is divided between the family fireside and the library.  Of course, everybody who visits  Hawarden takes away a memento of the  place. But it remained for a Minneapolis  ilirl to carry off the prize for originality  in this respect. She noticed some peacocks strutting around on the terrace,  and, with the aid of a ladder, secured  from the old gardener by means of a  bribe, she succeeded in pulling a feather  out. of a bird's tail as a souvenir of her  visit.  Mr. Gladstone is nothing if not  methodical. Indeed, he has been called a  human chronometer. He is as regular as  clockwork m everything, and even goes  so far as to insist that a piece of meat  should be bitten '.*. times. His theory as  to study is certainly good. He works on  knotty and hard problems, but in the  evening turns his attention to lighter  literature.  TORTURED FOR YEARS.  Prostrated by the Disease Piles���������One Cause  of Sleeplessness That Oun be Ken-lily  Overcome. ,.  William Wait, Saratoga Springs, N.  Y., writes: "I, the subscriber, being  for fifty years a resident of the town of  Saratoga, N. Y., do certify that I have  been for many years afflicted with the-  piles.  For months I got no regular sleep, I  became completely prostrate, the doctors did me no good. Ou noticing an  advertisement of Dr. A. Trash's Mag-  | netic Ointment, I at once procured a  I twenty-live cent bottle, and used it as  directed, and it has affected a perfect  cure. 1 have not language to express  my feelings of gratitude to the doctor  for his invaluable ointment. J would  say 10 those suffering with the same  cu.iipiaiiu. '.Try this remedy, aud you  will not bo disappointed.' "  Experience with Dr. Track's Magnetic Ointment in the past fifty years lias  demonstrated to the medical profession  as well as to millions of sufferers from  ])iles, that it is the safest and most effectual cure ever offered to the public,  containing no op'atcs or poisons of any  kind, painiess.and convenient to,haudie  and being sold by druggists at 2a  rcents and -10 cents per bottle, is within  the reach of every .sufferer.  Very frequently two or throe bottles  have made a complete cure of chronic  cases that have not yielded to other  remedies for years.  There's scarcely a disease more aggravating and obstinate to cure than  tlie various forms of piles, and it is a  common practice to use ointments,  salves and similar preparations^ containing dangerous poisons, to remove  tlie trouble. Dr. Trask's Magnetic  Ointment has superseded all of those  ineffectual remedies, and no one suffer-'  ing with any rectal trouble,makes any  mistake in giving Dr. Trask's Magnetic Ointment a trial.  Any druggist can furnish Dr. Trask's  Magnetic Ointment, as it is the best  known and most popular remedy foi  piles, and if you ask him he can doubtless refer you to many people in youi  vicinity who have been completely  cured by it.

There are several other passengers for  W���������/ among whom we may see a portly,  dignified gentleman who looks to be  somewhere in the forties, and who evidently has a capital opinion' of himself,  and knows what he, is about. He is fashionably dressed, - and wears a splendid  diamond in his shirt front. He carries in  his hand a small valise, and asks - for a  carriage to the best hotel.  Close behind him is another man, of a  different stripe. He is a rakish looking  follow, dressed in smart but cheap clothing. He carries in his hand a small,  square package, neatly strapiied, and this  alone would betray his calling, were it  not so obvious in his look and manner.

'When they aro out of sight of the gaping crowd about the depot, tho coachman,  acting under   Frank's  orders, 'brings his  horses to a walk, and, turning upon his  seat; addresses his master.  "I've dreadful news to tell you, sir;  and Mr. Frank said, to let you know it  quick, so as you could come there at  once."  Jasper Lamotte stares in angry astonishment; scarcely taking in the. meaning  of tho none too lucid sentence.  "Well, sir," he says, shortly, what are  you talking about?"  This timo the man came at once to the  point. ���������      , " , ,  "Mr. Burrill has been murdered,,sir.

"Drive there, at once," cried Mr. Lamotte, hoarsely. "I must see for myself,"  and ho sinks back upon his l scat, pale  and trembling.  Mean timo the carriage containing the  portly gentleman arrives at the hotel.  The rain is still falling, and tho gentleman stops hurriedly from the carriage  and across the pavement���������so hurriedly,  indeed, .. that he jostles against a boy  who is passing with a tray of ivory, carvings and pretty scroll-work.  Down comes the tray, and the gentleman, who is evidently,kind-hearted, cries  out:���������        <  "Why, boy! Bless mo, but I'm sorry!.  Didn't see yon,'upon my word. Pick your  wares up, sonny, and take stock of the  broken things, then come in and I'll  mako it all square. Just ask for Mr.  Wedron, and don't be bashful," and he  bustles into thc office of the W��������� House,  where he calls for tho best room they can  give him, registers as "C. A. Wedron,  att'y, _S..Y.," r.nd, asking that he might  have dinner as early as possible, he goes  at once to his room.  "I say," he calls to, the porter who  brings up his valise, "when that young  image boy comes, just send him along to  _ne; I owe him some damages."  A few minutes later, the boy enters  the office and deposits his disordered tray  .upon a chair.  "Come along, you," calls  gruffly. "T..i-' gentleman's  you."  "Wait a.minit, can't   yc?';  the  port. i".  looking n;.  retorts the  boy coolly. " 1 jest want to take account  of stock." '  ���������  He drops on.one knee and rearranges  his tray with great care and no haste.  "There!" he exclaims, rising at length  with a chuckle of satisfaction. "I reckon  that big bloke'11 be about two fifty out  after I call." And he takes up his-tray  and says .to the porter: "Now, then,  give us the address."  " Twenty-one," he replies, and the boy  ascends the stairs, and .unceremoniously  opens the door of tw-. rty-bne.  The gentleman, v .q stands at the  window, turns quickly, at.'. the sound of  the opening door, iind when it has clos tl  behind the boy, he advances and asks in  a low tone:��������� ;  "How lies the land,4 George? Is there  any news?''  "I'm sorry, sir," replies the boy. "I  was faithful to orders���������but things have  gone wrong."  "How, my boy?"  "The nuiii you call Burrill   was   murdered last night."  "Ah!"       '        : .  "Yes, sir, .and I might have known  who did it. This is the Avay it went, sir.  I'kopt an eye on all of your men as well  as I could, during the day, and kept tin-  widest eye on (lie short fellow with thc  tramp lay-out and the ugly face. That  was easy, for he -lay low all day; ,-o I  managed to get around here two or tli s ee  times during tlie afternoon, and I found  that Mr. Belknap was laying low, too.  He staid in and about the hotel all clay,  and, I think, all the evening. At nignc  the tramp fellow began to show signs of  life, and I piped him close. Early in (he  evening, at diisk, in fact, he went o\er  the river and out toward Mapleton; on  the ,way he met Burrill coming to town,  and he faced about and stalked him back.  Burrill lounged about a good bit, and  then he went to the saloon you pointed  out to me; some fellows were waiting  there for him, and they got about a table  and carried tilings high, drinking every  five minutes. My man kept a close look  on the saloon, and seemed uneasy all the  time; once he went in, and drank two  beers, but ho did not venture near Burrill and his party. By and by, I think it  must have been ten o'clock or later, Burrill came out from the saloon alone; he  was very drunk, and staggered as he  walked away. He turned south, and my  man came out, as I supposed, to follow.  But, instead, he took  a   short cut to the  bridge and crossed over, hidmg himself  in the low hedge on the other side. Ho  staid there until almost morning, and  then he seemed to be disgusted, or discouraged, or both. I staid close by, and  tracked him back to his roost! Then I  ���������turned in to get a little rest myself. I  was out early, and looked first after my  man; he was out too, prowling about  uneasily. He went to the saloon, and  seemed inclined to loaf there a bit; so I  went to look ailer Mr. Belknap. He was  not visible, ant. so I lounged about, as it  was too wet to get out my wares. Well,  it was not long before my man came  out from old ' Forty Rods,' ancl started  out on the south rood, and I kept on behind him, and before we had gone far we  met a party of excited men, gathered  about the mayor's house, and learned  that a murder had been committed. . We  fell in with the crowd, and went out to  the place where tho body lay. It was an  empty lot, right next to Doctor Heath's  cottago; the body was down in an old  cellar, and had been hastily buried by  the murderers. They say it was Doctor  Heath's dog that first discovered tho  body."  Ho pauses, and waits for a comment,  but none comes; the gentleman stands  with hands behind hin'i, and head bent,  as if still listening. For a long' time, he  stands thus, and then takes a turn or  two about the room.  "Why, George," he says, at last. "I  don't see that you could have done better. It was no part of our plan to have  this murder happen, and it bids fair, to  make us some trouble that we had. hot  counted on. But we are used to that,  Geoige. So you think you might have  known who did the deed?"  "I might, sir, if I had followed Burrill; I felt all tho time that ho was the  man to watch."  "Oh!" with an odd smile; "your  stincts are on thc, alert. However,  did'right iu disregarding instinct,  obeying orders. Now then, be off sir,  until you have further notice, keep both  your eyes on Mr. Belknap. By , tho by,  when do they hold an inquest?"  "At three . o'clock,    sir;    they want to  have Mr. Lamotte thero."  ' . "Well! that's all, George; you had bet-  'tcr dispose of your traps for the day, and  look sharp after, Mr. Belknap."  "All right, sir;" and taking up his  tray, the little detective goes Out,, 'dropping back into his old impudent manner, as tho door closes behind him.  "So, Burrill has been killed," soliloquizes the portly gentleman seating him-  'solf before his cheery fire. ' '' Well, that  goes to show that we detectives don't  find out all the tangles. We aro lucky  dftencr than we arc shrewd. Now look, I  fancied I hail the game in my hands,, and  stepped into town this morning to throw  my crump and win, and now, my game  is blocked,' and a new one opens against  me."

All that long morning Clifford Heath  sab alone in his cosy parlor, and what  his thoughts were no observer, had there  been such, could have guessed. His features were grave, even stern,' but. .there'  was no apprehension,- no "expectancy, no  fear; nothing but calm gravity and inflexible haughtiness could be discerned  in the face that was sometimes bent over  a favorite book, sometimes submerged  in clouds of smoke from his big German  meerschaum, but that never once turned  toward the window that overlooked the  scene of the morning's discovery. All  day the sounds from thence penetrated  to his ear; all day men were coming.and  going, with much loud talk as they,  passed his doorway, and much bustle and  excitement.

The Ship of Weal tli and Seven Gods ot  .Fortune and Happiness���������Japan's Tenns  and Santa Claus���������Old jVTan or T-onjjevity  ���������Quaint T.egends of Antiquity.  In Japan "the glad new year" is a  season of much ..festivity and innocent  mirth. Every portal is decorated, and  each object of which the decoration is  composed has a symbolic meaning. Tbe  usual form of the decoration is a green  arch. On the right is placed a small pine  tree with a reddish stem and on the left  one with a black stem. Fancy has attributed to the light one a fern inine hand and  to the dark one a masculine sex. . Also  this hardy tree symbolizes a stalwart age  that has withstood .the storms and strug-'  gles of existeuce. Close to the pines on  either side are sot graceful stems of bamboo, which,4" rising erect with sucession of  rings, forms a fit symbol of hale life and  fulness of years. . Tho distance between  the pines���������about six feet���������is spanned by  a grass rope sufficiently raised to. admit  of passage beneath it. This, according  to its symbolic purpose, debars,! all unclean and evil things from crossing the  threshold.  Among the decorations hung in the  arch is the iakara-bune, "the ship of  wealth," a miniature ship of twisted  straw, in which ar9 seated the seven gods  of fortune and happiness. The names and  functions of these seven gods of fortune  are worthy of attention. Fukurokuji,  the first figure which attracts notice, i's  an old man with a very tall head. He is  known.as the ancient star of tho south  pole, the luminary which presides ,over  human life and by its appearance an-"  nou'uees peace ,to the world.  Bishamon, the next figure, is the -heavenly protector of priests ancl the special  patron of all who wish to become expert  swordsmen, horsemen and scholars. He  is stands, armed cap-a-pie, grasping a  long spear in his right hand, whilein  his left ho holds a miniature pagoda  which contains the soul of tho devout.  Thoso who pray to him are told that "he  can ' grant them good fortune more  swiftly than the flight of an arrow from '  the bow."  Near to this oriental man is Benten,  the Venus of thc company, a comely woman, holding a stringed instrument of  music, the emblem of harmony. Actors  and people who make their living by  amusing the public look to her for attractiveness and ability to acquire wealth.  Hotei, the least dignified of the seven,  but the greatest favorite of the populace  at large, is supposed to have been a  priest, remembered for his portly form,  his love of children and for a large cloth  bag, which he always carried. He is the  Japanese Santa Claus; a merry old fellow whose heart retains a boyish freshness notwithstanding the wrinkles on his  brow, sharing with zest the sports,of  ohildren who take liberties with: him as  with a playmate and claim him as their  own. His bag, always full, may be put  to many . uses. It may be a bed upon  which he can rest his limbs at night, or  a receptacle for the thousand precious  things which he has gathered, or. a trap  for little boys and girls who are enticed  inside to see the marvelous things it is  supposed to contain, or the treasury from  whioh he dispenses gifts to all good ohil.  dren; for he is of keen discernment, with  eyes in the back of his head, and, able  to see round corners, he can easily distinguish good from the bad.  Ebisu, a short figure with a jovial  countenance, is the guardian of markets  and trades. He is the third son of Izan-  ami and Izanami no mikoto, the creators  of great Japan and the progenitors of  the mikado, but he reflects little credit  on his illustrious parentage, for he is a  ���������cripple. He is represented in pictures as  sitting by the sea on a rock, with a fishing rod in his hand., and a large red tail,  the turbotof the Japanese banquet, under his arm, and ou his head a cap worn  by persons of rank. .  Daikoku the god of wealth, is a short,  stout, well to do looking figure, standing  upon a pair of rice bales, holding a large  mallet in ono hand and with the other  gasping the mouth of a bag, filled with  wind, slung ovor his shoulder. He is  painted blue, the color of heaven, wears  a black cap, the crown.of which projects  forward over is brow, *_nd is attended by  a rat with which ho sometimes amuses  himself. The moral is, human nature is  prone to ambition, therefore a low figure  and humble attitude are most befitting  it. The bag slung over his shoulder  represents wealth, hard to be acquired;  like the wind, not easy to be controlled  and ready to escape, therefore to be held  fast. The cap coming well ovor the forehead prevents too high looks and keeps  the eyes intent upon the realities of life,  without which there can be no success.  The mallet is the symbol of labor by  which wealth is acquired, and the bales  of rice on which he stands show that he  is the patron of azriculfcural prosperity.  All classes of the people honor him, and  his image is in every house.  Jirojin, the seventh of these gods, is  the duplicate of Fukurokuju. He is represented as a   venerable   man of   dignified  bearing, clad in long robes of a bygone  time, bearing a fan and supporting his  footsteps by a   crooked staff from   which  .lose of her school days.

"���������Washington Star.  How It Originated.'  The scene is laid' on the banks of the  Euphrates shortly after the episode in the  Garden of Eden. The new world is still  fragrant with the flush of divinity, and  the nightingale, roused from her midnight  dreams, pours her melody through the exhilarating air.  Suddenly from a neighboring cave there  arose a clamor such as the newborn world  has never before heard.  All the beasts of the field and the forest  were roused and startled, and for a time  none had the courage to investigate the  cause of the outcry.  > Presently the lioness turned to her  spouse and asked him if he would not Investigate. At that time he was making  his record as the bravest of all animals.  So, of course, he could not refuse. Rising  from the bed of leaves, he stalked out  through the 'night and disappeared, and  still the dread cries resounded through the  vibrant air.  Presently the lion returned, and his  spouse, who was crouching terror stricken  in her lair, inquired what it was all about.  "Oh," said the lion, haughtily, "it .3  merely that couple of human beings. .They  are,raising Cain." c '  As everybody knows, Cain was the firstborn of the human family, and the phrase  as spoken by the lion that night has come  echoing down the ages, and as yet we always describe the worst noises by saying  that some one is raising Cain.���������New Vork  Journal.  The Meaning ot a Vote.  Government of tho people, for the people, by the people, is called democracy. A  republic which trusts in this tries to educate ail .the people so that the conscience  and intelligence of the averago man may  be equal to tho direction of the affairs of  the state That is, the decision is given  to tho majority of the voters.  It is not pretended by intelligent persons  that this 'majority necessarily knows better than any one man or auy small company of men what is the best policy.  But it must be granted by all that the  physical strength is with tho largest numbers A republic, therefore, is almost certain that all the people will obey the laws  which the majority of the voters have determined on. and that they will obey the  magistrates or officers whom the majority  of tlio people have chosen.  Under universal suffrage you may not  have tho wisest decision, but you do have,  and everybody knows you have, the safest  decision. It is safe, that is, from the  chances of rebellion by the minority.���������  Harper's Round Table.  ifU  TALKING TOURISTS.  TWO   DISTINGUISHED    FOREIGN   AGITATORS VISITING  AMERICA.  Hand Gonne , Comes to Tell tlie Old, Old  Story of Ireland's~Wronjcs, While Prine*  Krapotkine, the Famous' Russian Anarchist,  Explains His Peculiar Views.  Just now we are being favored by th������  presence of,'two distinguished agitator*  who have come across the ocean to enlist  our sympathies in two distinct movements,  both of. which are somewhat revolutionary. One of these visitors is Prince Krapot-'  .y  PRINCE K-{__POT__Il.E.  kine, a noted Russian anarchist, who finds '  England about the only safe place of resi-  dciiC-e hi .Kni-(44>c 'The other is the beau-  uiui,_t_.i__ iMiiua -tonne, popularly known  as ' the *��������� Irish Joan of. Arc," who . makes  Paris tho scene of her labors on behalf of  .downtrodden Ireland.  Of the two Prince Krapotkine is the  most picturesque, and his' history is the  most interesting A prince of Russia, a  descendant of a Russian house older than  Bven that of the Romanoffs, a distinguished  scientist and a man of high education and  refinement, he elects to espouse the cause  of anarchy in spite of the clilflculties, danger and suffering which this course has  brought him in the past. As a youth he  was a member ot a wealthy and aristocratic family in Moscow and begani his  career by devoting himsoll to scientific  study When quitea young man; he visited*  Siberia and there collected large stores of  geological and geographical information,  making a number ot scientific expeditions  into the interior He settled in St.: Petersburg, where he was made,secretary of the  Russian Geographical society ��������� He wrote  several scientific books, but had to finish  his principal work in prison. In 1872 he  visited Belgium and Switzerland ' and returned to Russia filled with enthusiasm  for the new socialistic movement He  allied himself with the revolutionary circle and undertook the dangerous-work of  propaganda among the laborers of the capital. He began to address audiences .in  secret, and as his fame as an orator spread  he began to receive attention from the police. At last he was forced to give up this"  sort of work, for spies were continually on  his track.  It was not long after this that Krapotkine was arrested on a charge of being  concerned in a conspiracy against the life  of the czar and was sentenced to life im-  prisonmnt. He was not sent- to Siberia,  but was confined in the fortress of Peter  and Paul in the Neva. He would have  been there yet had it not been that he was  transferred to the Nicholas hospital, from  which he made a daring and sensational  escape in 1876 The fugitive first sought  refuge in England, but a year later went  to Switzerland, where he joined the Jura  federation of the International Working-  men s association. Later he founded the  anarchistic paper La Revolte. This was  too much for the Swiss, and they expelled  him.  After that the prince traveled in various  countries of Europe, writing and lecturing  in denunciation of the Russian government.   In 1882 he was arrested in F ranoa.

He was released, however, on  the appeal of a number of prominent scientists and literary men before having  served out his term.  Since 1886 Prince Krapotkine has lived  chiefly in England, but he has continued  to be just as active" an enemy to government as ever, and his writings are read  with interest by anarchists and socialist*,  all over the world  The object of Miss Maud Gonno's visit  is to raise funds for the ereotion of a monument to Theobald Wolfe Tone, the heroio  leader of the revolution of 1798.  Miss Gonne is a charming propagandist,  and it is not to be wondered at that she  has been so successful. She is a tall, beautiful young woman of 38. She does not  come from the peasant class, whose causa  she pleads so eloquently, but from the so  called Irish aristocracy.

"Don't ask for   reasons,   don't; promise, promise, promise!"   ,
She was   growing   excited,   and   Constance hastened to say:���
"You art* laboring  under   some   delu-
���sion, dear child; Frank   has  not   offered
him'self to me."
".But he will! he -will! and I   tell you,
Constance, it would be.giving yourself to
a fate like mine,   and   worse.       Thc La-
motfces have not done   with  disgrace yet,
nnd ic shall not fall on you; promise me,
"I promise,  Sybil."
���'You    promise;" she   arose   from her
chair and came 'close to Constance; "you
promise,"   sho   said,      slowly,      ''never,
never to marry Francis Lamotte?"
"I .swear if,.'"
A coarse laugh, a smothered oath; they
both turn swiftly, and there, in the
doorway, .smelling of tobacco ancl "brandy,
and shaking with coarse laughter, is
John Burrill, <-i;id beside4 bim',' with
clenched hands,, swollen temples, drawn,,
whit.' lips. stands Francis Lamotte.
Stand-4! No. lie reels, he clings to thc
door-frame for support; his enemy is
upon him.
Sybil draws herself erect; the red blood
flames to her face:   the   fire   darts    from
; her eyes; she   lifts    one slender arm and
points at the   reeling   figure; then there
! rings   out   a   burst   of    mad,    mocking
| laughter.
} "Ha! ha! ha! Fivrnk Lamotte, I have
' settled my account with you."
j; Then turning swiftly upon Burrill,
: and with even fiercer fury she shrieks:���
"Out, out. out of my sight! I am almost done with you, too. Go back to
' your wine   and   your   wallowing   in the
gutter; your days are numbered."
(      The awful look upon her   face, the dc-
' fiaut hatred   in   her   voice,   tho   sudden
strength and firmness of her  whole boarding,    Constance shuddered   at and never
'forgot, Frank Lamotte,   making   a mon-
. strous effort for   self-control,   gasped, let
go his hold on thc door frame,   lifted his
i hand to'   his   temples,    and   came   a few
, steps into   the   room.    Outside,    on   the
j'stairway, was the rustle of woman's gar-
! meats, the light fall   of   swift   feet.    In
| other moment Mrs. Lamotte, followed by
j -Mrs. Aliston, .enters   the   room,   pushing
' past the gaping   and   astonished   Burrill
with    scant"    ceremony.      Then,    Sybil's
strength deserts her as   John'Burrill, re-
| called to a sense of his  own   importance,
| advances, and   seems   about,  to   address
j hei*.    She utters a.cry of   abhorrence and
terror, and. throwing out   her   hands   to
.ward off his approach, reels,  falls, and is
'caught in the supportiung   arms of Con-
, stance and Mrs. Lamotte.
.  ' While they   are   applying   restoratives,
i Frank sees thc propriety of   withdrawing
) from the scone, but   no   such motives of
, delicacy or decency ever find lodgment in
the brain of John   Burrill,   and   leering
I with tipsy gravity, he presses close to the
, bedside  and   poisons   the   air   with   his
reeking breath.    Constance   flushes with
anger,  and   glances   at    Mrs.    Lamotte.
That lady looks up uneasily,   and   seems
to hesitate, and then    Mrs.    Aliston rises
to the occasion, and covers   herself   with
Looking blandly up into the man's
, face, she lays one fat),* gloved hand upon
' his arm, and says, in a low, confidential
| tone:���    ,
;,     "Conic this way one   moment,    sir,    if
I you please,"'   and   she   fairly   leads   thc
'���'! wondering and unsuspecting victim from
[.the room.    A. second later he is standing

('swiftly and locked securely.  John Burrill

.]', "I suppose he thought I: would tell
j! him a-secret when I got him outside,"
[she laughs, softly.
Y Whatever he thought he kept to him-
;!self. After uttering a few curses he went
.below, "returned to his pipe and his
I bowl," and waited the dinner hour.
[ "I shall send for Doctor Heath," said
ij'Mx-s."Lamotte, as she bent above her
'| daughter, who had slowly returned, to

��� not to see. or know the friends who stood
j about her. "Sybil does not'know us; I

���! Mrs. Aliston nodded sagaciously. "He
jean not come too soon," she said; then

yet you have sanctioned the fraud. Who
has blighted Sybil's life, you may know,
but it is not Evan."
"Constance do you mean���"
"I mean all that I say. Let me pass,
"Not yet. Constance, Constance! had
you never any love for me? Is there no
shadow of hope?" ,
"At first," said Constance, coldly, "I
liked you as Sybil's brother; later, I tolerated you; now you are teaching me to
despise you. Long ago I told you that
only yourself could injure yourself in my
eyes. There might have been a reason,
an excuse even, for allowing poor Evan,
who has willingly assumed the position,
to become the family scape-goat. There
is none for your unbrotherly and false
accusation. Whatever his faults may be,
poor Evan is unselfish, and lie truly loves
his sister."
"Is this your answer?"
"What do you expect? do you want my
assurance that my promise   to  Sybil was
made in good faith, and that I intend
to keep it? If so, you have it." She went
swiftly past him, with the last words on
her lips. ��� And again Frank Lamotte was
the prey of his enemy; like a drunken
man, he reeled back into the parlor,
gnashing his teeth, cursing his fate, half
mad and wiiolly desperate.
Menwhile, above stairs, John Burrill
was rehearsing to Evan, after his drunken
fashion, tho recqnt scene in Sybil's
room, not even omitting his own expulsion by wily Mrs. Aliston. As lie repeated, with wonderful accuracy, considering
his condition, the wild words uttered by
Sybil, his listener sat very erect, with
.wild staring eyes, and lips' hold tightly
together, his teeth'almost biting through
them; with burning eyes, and quivering
frame, and a strange fear' at   his ��� heart.
Having finished his narrative, Burrill
"I'm to meet some fellows at Forty's,"
he said, thickly. "I'll stop with them
a couple of hours, or three, maybe; after
that���" and he winked significantly.
"After that," repeated Evan, and
winked in return.
An hour later Evan, pale and shivering, knocked softly at Sybil's door; Mrs.
Lamotte appeared.
"How is Sybil,  mother?"
"Quiet, but not rational.  DoctorHoath

"I feel .badly,

At ten o'clock that night, business was
running lively at the low ceiled, dingy.
. riverside saloon, that was most popular
with the factory men, the colliers, the
drovers, and thc promiscuous roughs of
W���, and that bears the dignified title
of "Old Forty Rods."
Thc saloon is well patronized to-night.
At the upper end, nearest the door, "Old
Forty," in person, is passing liquors
across the bar, and bawling orders to a
nimble assisstant, while every now and
then he addresses a coarse jest to some
of thc numerous loafers about the bar,
mingling them strangely with his. orders,
and his calling of the drinks, as he
passes them across the rail.
"Here's your beer, Lupin; Jack, half
a dozen brandies for Mr. Burrill's party;
Little, you a,re out on thc brown horse���
rum and water? Yes. sir, yes."
"Burrill's beastly high to-night," said
a factory hand, setting down his beer
glass nnd wiping his mouth; "and the
boys freeze to him since ho handles old
Lamotte's rocks."
"Of course, of course. Burrill don't
forget old friends; Jack, bring thc rum
flask; they've been here ji plum hour,
them chaps, sir; 'ere's your punch, mister, and they keep the stuff runnin'
down their throats, now I can tell you.
Burrill foots the bill, of course; and they
can do anything with that big chap
when the wines get the upper hands of
him. I'll be sworn, they're up to mischief to-night, for I see Rooney and B ob
Giles, they delight in getting Burrill into
scrapes, are drinking light, and plying
him heavy," and "Forty" turned about
to draw a glass of beer for a low-browed;
roughly-dressed man who had just entered, and who was in fact, none other
than the tramp who had feasted by the
roadside, on the day before, and whom
Mr. Belknap had called Roake.
Roake drank his beer, and lounged,
over the bar for a short time, then called
for a second glass, and after drinking it,
went quietly out.
At the lower end of the long saloon,
several tables are scattered, and gathered
about one of these we. see the party
spoken of as "Mr. Burrill's."
Five men are grouped about the small
table, and among these, John Burrill is
conspicuous for being much 1 letter dressed,
.much louder in his laughter, and viler
in his jests, and much drunker than are
the other four.
Since his change of fortune, these men
ha vi.4 made capital of his weakness, and
his purse has supplied their thirst, in
return for which lie has been fawned
upon, ami flattered, during the earlier
stages of.his intoxication, and. made a
tool and a jest later,.
"I nuis' go home," articulated Burrill,
md    consulting   a    showy

"All right, okl pard; but don't let a
little sickness call you off so early; just
let Heath take care of them; you're fond
of Heath,  too."'
"Curse Heath!" roared out John Burl-ill; "what do you mean, I say, Roo-
"Burrill,'' said Bob Giles,setting down
his glass and speaking in a low, confidential tone; ���'what's this power you have
over Heath? Don't y.u know he's afraid
of you?"
"He���he zer 'j'raid er me! an' so he
better be���him un���"
"And yet there are two or three of the
fellows that say you are the one that's
'' Me afraid! I���John Bur���11.    f-fraid.
Boys, look, en I'll jus' tell you a s-secret.
If I jus' opened my mouth, I could run
that f-fellow out of the country; fact!"
and he nodded sagaciously again and
"Then there ain't no truth in that
story that you are the one that's afraid,
and that you wouldn't dare go to Heath's
office, riot even if you wanted a  doctor?"
"T-truth? By gad, sir, show me the
man that says so; show 'im to me! By
heavens, sir, I wouldn't be f-fraid to rout
him up the d-darkest night that ever
blew, sir."
"Of course not, we don't doubt that,
but���there's them do. I'll tell you what
it is, Burrill, the thing would be settled
if you would just walk up to the doctor's
cottage, tell him you are sick somewhere,
and bring, away' a ' prescription; that
would settle it.''
A murmur of approval went round the
tabic. Not a man was there among them
who would not rejoice inwardly at the
discomfiture of thc arrogant, would-be
aristocrat, who,' while he was less than
their equal in many things, had risen
above them in fortune. He had readied
that period of drunkenness, and it took a
vast quantity of stout liquor to bring him
up to it, whore his voice began to grow
hoarse, his ready tongue to trip, his
brain to be most completely muddled,
and his legs to be most .unreliable instruments of locomotion. Tho men about
the table nodded and winked to each
other, under his xory nose.
"Egg him on. Rooney," whispered
Giles, "let's have thc fun out.", And
they did.
Ere long, John Burrill, staggering
under   the   additional   cargo   of   drinks
imbibed as toasts to the undertaking,
and again, ns draughts of defiance to the
enemy who would dare question , his
courage, buttoned his coat about him,
and, boasting, cursing, and swaggering,
reeled out into the night. Out into the
night that swallowed him up forever.
"Let's follow him. said one of thc
plotter's, starting up as the door closed
behind him.
But this proposition met with no
favor. The night was very dark, and tho
wind blowing in fierce gusts; the saloon
was warm dnd inviting, and their victim
had ordered their grog, until he should
"Let's drink tho good liquor he has
paid for," said Rooney. with a wink,
"then we will let some more of the boys
into the secret, and start' out in a gang
and gather him up. "Heath will kick him
out sure enough, and if we follow too
close we might be discovered. Not by
Burrill but by the doctor. We will bring
Burrill hack hero and two more drinks
will make him tell the whole story."
They did not agree with Rooney on all
points of his argument; but they had
played a coarse, practical joke upon a
man who sometimes "took on airs" and
vaunted himself as their patron; he who
had been'only their equal once. It was
only a. joke, a Avitless, mirthless, coarse
saloon joke/ and they drank on and grew
hilarious, never dreaming that they had
sent one man to his grave, and another
to the foot of the scaffold.
As John Burrill came forth from , the
saloon and turned his face toward Doctor
Heath's cottage, a lithe form emerged
from amidst the darkness and paused for
a moment just outside the saloon door,
seeming to hesitate.
"He's goin' home, in course," muttered the man. "I'll jest light out and
come in ahead." And ho plunged down
a by street and went swiftly over the
bridge; but not alone.
A second dark form had been lurking
in thc vicinity of "Old Forty's" the form
of a boy, who glided through the dark,
at the heels of the other, like a spirit.
"He is going wrong," thought this
shadow, discontentedly. "Somehow I'm
sure of it; I'm shadowing the. wrong
party; but���-I'm oheying instructions."
And pursued and pursuer, crossed the
bridge and turned their steps toward
Mapleton. <-
Meantime, John Burrill, reeling, singing snatches of low songs, and stopping
sometimes to rest and assure himself that
all tne landmarks are there, pursues his
-way toward Doctor Heath's cottage.
It is situated on the   outskirts   of   the
town; the   way is long, the night   dark, j
the wind boisterous, and the way lonely.
It is after ten o'clock.
.  Later���nearly two hours.  Liter,   Frank
Lamotte, driven by his demon of unrest,
is pacing his room,    feverish   and   fierce,
when his door opens softly, a -white, haggard face looks in, a hoarse   voice   articulates, ������.'.-���..
,   "Frank, for God's sake, for, your   own
sake, come with mc quick!"
Frank Lamotte turns swiftly, angrily.
He is about to speak, when something
catches his eye. fixes it in horror, arid
causes him to gasp out, pointing with
one shaking finger.
"Ah-h-h! what is that?"
"It is the  Family    Honor!" came   the
hissing   answer.  "Come. I tell you."
And like a man iu a nightmare, Frank
Lamotte obovs.
Heath makes free with the flowers in
their season, and even swings his hammock there among the old trees, that outnumber his own, and have' outstripped
them, too, in years and growth.
Opposite the doctor's cottage stands a
handsome dwelling, far back among the
trees. It is the home of Lawyer O'Meara
and his wife; and thc two are the doctor's
firm friends.
Beyond the O'Meara dwelling and on
the same side of the street, stretches a
row of cottages, built and owned by Mr.
O'Meara. These are occupied by some
thrifty mechanics, and one or two of the
best of the mill workers. They arc neat,
new, tasteful, and well cared for by their
Clifford Heath awake a little later than
usual, this dismal, gray morning; he
had returned from his second visit to
Sybil Burrill at a lato hour; and after
sitting beside his fire,pondering long over
many things, had retired, to sleep
soundly, and to wake lato. What first
I'ouses him is a knocking upon his door,
a regular 'tattoo, beaten by; his housekeeper, grown impatient over coffee too
long browed, and muffins too brown.
I-le makes his toilet after a leisurely
fashion, smiling a'little at thc vociferous
barking of his dog, Prince.
The dog is always confined in the
stable at night, where he is a safe companion and sure protection to the doctor's fine horse; and now, it, being past
the time when he is usually liberated, ho
is making his wrongs heard, and there
will be no more repose or quiet until
Prince is set free.
"Poor fellow," calls his master, as he
swings open the stable door. "Poor
Prince! Good, old boy! Como now, and
you shall have.a splendid breakfast to
compensate for my neglect."-
The dog- bounds out, a splendid bull
dog, strong, fierce, and white as milk.
I-Ie fawns" upon his master, leaps about
him, barks joyfully, and thon-> follows
obediently, to ,tlie kitchen. The dog provided for, Doctor Heath goes in out of
the ' rain, shaking the water from his
coat, and tossing it aside iu favor of a
dry one; and then ho applies himself to
his own breakfast.
The warmth and comfort within ��� aro
intensified by tho dreariness without.
Xvlrs. Gray has lighted a fire in the grate,
and he turns toward it, sipping his coffee
-Cisurely, enjoying the warmth all the
more because of an occasional glance out
of the window.
Two men pass���two of the
his   neighbors,    who,    dismayed   by   the
storm, have   turned   back   toward  their
"Poor devils!"' mutters the doctor,
sympathetically; "they don't fancy laying brick and mixing mortar in weather
like this; and one of them has no overcoat; I must keep that in mind, and supply him, if ho will accept one., from out
my store."
He stirs the fire briskly, takes another
sip from his half emptied cup,   and   goes
down, and the   man who   has   thus   far
stood sentinel follows suit.  Then the four
, approach .the mound   once   more.    For a
moment they regard each other   silently,
then one of the masons says:���
"If we had a spade."
"Not yet," breaks in Lawyer 'OMeara.
"Let's make sure   that   we   have   found'
something before we cause any   alarm to ���
be given.    Get   some   boards; we do not
want a spade."
The boards are found easily, and they
look to O'Meara again, . all but Clifford
Heath, who stands near the mound gazing downward as if~~fascinated. While
O'Meara speaks he stoops swiftly, and
then carries his hand to his pocket.
"Let's remove the���upper portion of
whatever this is," says the lawyer nervously, "and work carefully. This looks
"It looks like murder," says Clifford
Heath, quietly. "Pull away the dirt carefully, men."
They are all strong-nerved, courageous
men; yet they are all very pale,'- as they
bend   to their task.
- A few moments, and Mr. O'Meara
utters a sharp exclamation, drops, his
board, and draws back. They have unearthed a shoulder, an arm, a clenched
A moment more, and Clifford Heath,
too, withdraws,from his task, thc cold
sweat standing thick upon his temples.
They are uncoyering a head, a, head that
is shrouded with something white.
To Mr. O'Meara, to Clifford Heath,
the moment is one of intense unmixed
'horror. To the men who still bend to
their work, the horror has its mixture of
curiosity. Whose is the face they are
about to look upon?
Instinctively tlie two more refined'men
draw* farther back, instinctively tho
others bend, closer.
Swiftly they work. The last bit of
earth is removed from the face; carefully
they draw away a largo white handkerchief, then utter a cry of horror.

off in a reverie.    Presently
the sound of a dog'
The   morning   of   *fne   following
breaks gray and di.-7i.al.    The   wind
been blowing all the night   through,
wherever a tree stair s, there the fallen
leaves lie, thick and rain-soaked; for it
is raining, drizzling weather and above,
below, and around, all is gray, and dull,
and dreary.
Dr. Heath's cottage stands aloof from
all other dwellings quite by itself, for the
houses stand wide apart in this suburban
portion of the town, and he has selected
the pretty place because of its quiet
beauty, and comparative isolation. He
has neighbors within sight, within hearing, too, should he choose to be vociferous; but the houses about him all stand
within their own pleasant grounds. His
nearest neighbor, on the one hand, has
placed a fine ore liard between them, and
on tho other hand, he has no neighbor at
all; there is a vacant lot, well planted
and pleasantly ruinous to see. A fine
dwelling had once occupied the site, but
fire had destroyed it, and the gaping
cellar, a pile of burnt bricks, and some
charred debris, are all that remain. In
summer the place is one tangled growth
of roses and flowering shrubs, and Doctor
thero comes
i uog s angry barking, and
soon mingled with the canine cries, the
voices of men calling to one another,
crying for aid. But so pleasant is his
meditation, and so deep, that their
sounds do not rouse, him; they reach his
ears, 'tis true; he has a vague sense of
disagreeable sounds, but they do not
break his reverie.
Something else does, however, a brisk
hammering on the street .door, and a
loud, high pitched voice, calling:���
"Heath! Heath, I say!"
He starts up, shakes himself and his
ideas, together, and goes to face the intruder upon his meditations. It is his
neighbor across the way.
"Heath, have you lost your ears or
your senses?" he cries, impatiently;
'' what the devil has your dog found,
that has set these fellows in such a panic?
Something's wrong; they want ..you.; to
come and control the dog."
1' Heath! Heath!" comes from the ad-
joining vacant lot; "come, for God's
sake, quick!"
In another moment,' Clifford Heath has
seized his hat; and, followed by his
neighbor, is out in the yard.
"Come this way, O'Meara," he says,
quickly; "that is if you can leap the
fence, it's not high," and he strides
through his own grounds, scales the intervening palings, and in a few seconds
is on the scene. .,
On the scene! At the edge of the old
cellar, one of the men recently denominated, "poor devils,",*��>y the musing doctor, is gesticulating violently,.'andurging
him forward with lips that are pale with
Down in the old cellar, the second
man, paler still than the first, is making
futile efforts to draw the dog away from
something, at which he is -clawing and
tearing, barking furiously all the time.
Something lies under a heaped us mass
of leaves, grass, and freshly turned earth;
something from which the fierce beast is
tearing away the covering with rapid
movements. As he leaps down into the
cellar, Clifford Heath sees what it is that
has so terrified the two men. From
under tho leaves and earth, Prince has
brought to light a human foot and leg!
Instantly he springs forward, his hand
upon the dog's collar, his face pale as
"Prince!" he cries; "Prince! come
away,  sir."
The dog crouches, quails for a moment, then utters a low growl, and tries
to shake himself free; for thc first time,
he refuses to obey his master.
But it is his master; there is a short,
sharp struggle, and then the brute
co .vers, whining at his feet.
"Wait!" he says, imperiously to the
men, and then, speaking a stern word of
command, he strides away, followed by
the conquered and trembling brute.
It is the work of a moment to chain
him fast; and then Clifford Heath goes
swiftly back to the men, who stand very
much as he left them.
"Can this be some trick?" Mr.
O'Meara is saying, peering down from
the edge of the cellar wall at the mound
of earth and tho protruding leg.
"There is no trick here," replies
Clifford Heath, once more springing
down into the cellar. "My dog would
not be deceived. Come down here,
O'Meara.; this thing must be unearthed."
Mr. O'Meara lowers himself   carefully
It is John Burrill!
Lying there, half buried still, with
clenched hands and features distorted. It
is John Burrill, dead.
Clifford Heath utters a sharp exclamation. He starts forward suddenly, and
looks, not upon the dead face, but
straight at the white thing that is still
held in the hand of one of the masons.
Then he snatches it from (he man fiercely, looks at it again and more .closely,
and lets it'fall from' his grasp. For a
moment all is black to his vision;1- and
over his face a ghastly pallor creeps.
Slowly, slowly, he lifts his hand to his ���
forehead, rests it there for a moment,
and scorns   making   an   effort
Then lie   drops   his   hand; ho
to think,
lifts   his'
head; lie draws himself erect.
"O'Meara,"     he     says,      in   a   voioe
strangely hollow and unfamiliar, and
pointing to the fallen handkerchief.
"Look at that. I am going home; when
you want me you will find me there."
And without having so much as glanced
at the dead face so near" him, he goes
slowly towards his cottage, holding his
head proudly erect still.
Mr. O'Meara turns away from the
corpse, and gazes for a moment after tbe
retreating form of his friend; then he
picks up the handkerchief; it is of softest
linen, and across one corner he reads
the embroidered name of Clifford Heath.
For a moment he stands with tho telltale thing held loosely in his hand, and
then he bends down, spreads it once
more over the dead face, and turns to
the .men.
"This body must not be disturbed further," he says, authoritatively. "One of
you go at once and notify Soames, and
then Corliss. Fortunately, Soames lives
quite near. Don't bring a gang here.
Let's conduct this business decently and
in order. Do you go, Bartlettj" addressing the younger of the two men. "We
will stay here until the mayor comes."
And Lawyer O'Meara buttons his coat
tightly about him and draws closer to
the cellar wall, the better to protect himself from the-drip,, drip, of the rain.
"It is a horrible thing, sir," ventured
the mechanic, drawing further away
from the ghastly thing Outlined, and
made more horrible, by the wet, white
covering. "It's a fearful deed for somebody, and���it looks as if the right man
wasn't far away; we all know how he
and Burrill were���"
"Hold your tongue, man," snapped
O'Meara, testily, "keep 'what wc all
know' until you are called on to testify.
I have something to think-about."
And he does think, long and earnestly,
regardless of the ra' ; regardless alike of
the restless living companion aud of the
silent dead.
By and by, they come, the mayor, the
officers, the curious gazers; the rain is
nothing to them iu a case like this;
there is much running to and fro; there
are all the scenes and incident attendant
upon a firsst-class horror. A messenger
is dispatched, in hr e, to Mapleton, and,
in the wind aud rain, the drama moves
The messenger to Mapleton rides in
hot haste; he finds none, but the servants

breaks tlie news, and then waits while
they rouse Frank Lamotte; for Jasper
Lamotte has not returned from the city.
After a time he comCs down, pale and
troubled of countenance; he can scarcely
credit the news he hears; he is terribly
shocked, speechless with the horror of
the story told him.
By and by, he recovers his composure,
in a measure; he goes .to his mother's
room, and tells her the horrible news;
he orders the servants to be careful what ���
they say. in his sister's presence, and not
to approach Evan's room; then he tells
the coachman to meet Mr. Lamotte, who

At St. .Tohnsbury, Yt.,  in a museum built by tho chief citizen,  as I examined a specimen on the shelf,  I first realized what a holy of holies God  cam build and has built' in tlie temple of  one piece of coral, f do not wonder that  Ernst Heckel, Che great scientist, .while  in Ceylon, was so entranced with the  specimens which some Cingalese divers  had brought, up for his inspection that  he himself plunged iuto the sea and  ���������went clear under the waves at the risk of  his life, again ancl again and again, that  he might know more of tho coral, the  beauty of which he indicates cannot even  be guessed by those who hare only seen  it above water, and after th* polyps,  which are its sculptors and architects,  have died and the chief glories of these  submarine flowers have expired. Job in  my text did not niean to depreciate this  dvrine sculpture in the coral reefs along  the sea coasGs. ..'.-..''..;.:  No   one   can afford, to depreciate these  white   palaces   of   the   deep, built under  God's   direction.    He   never   changes hia  plans for the building   of the islands and  shores,   and;  for uncounted thousands of'  years   the   coral   gardens   and   the coral  castles   and   the coral battlements- go on  and up.  I charge you that you will please  God  and   please yourself   if   you will go  into tha minute examination of the coraLs  ���������.___���������__. -foundations, their pinnacles, their  aisles,   their   pillars,;  their   curves, their  cleavages; their reticulation, their grouping���������families   of thein,   towns   of  them, j  cities   of   them   and, continents of them.'.]  Indeed you cannot appreciate   the  moan- j  ing   of   my text   unless you know something of the   coral���������labyrinthian, stellar, |  ,  columnar, floral, dented like shields from  battle, spotted like leopards, embroidered  like lace, hung like   upholstery���������-twilight  '  and auroras    and    sunbursts   of   beauty!  From deep crimson to milk white are its  colors.    "You   may find this   work of God  through the animalcules SO fathoms down.  or   amid   the   breakers,   where    the   sea  dashes the wildest and beats   the mightiest and   bellows the loudest.     Those   sea  creatures are very busy.    Now they build  islands in the center of the Pacific ocean.  Now they   lift   barriers   around tho continent.    Indian ocean, Red sea  and-coast,  of Zanzibar have specimens   of   their infinitesimal but sublime masonry.    At tho  recession   of   the   tides you may in some  places see the top   of   their Alpine elevations, while   elsewhere   nothing   bub the  deep sea soundings from the decks of tho  Challenger,   the     Porcupine      and     the  Lightning of   the   British expedition can  announce    them.       The   ancient   Gauls  -Employed the coral to adorn their helmet_-  and the hilts of swords.    In   many lands  it has been used as amulets.    The Algerian reefs in one year (1873) had   at work  amid   the   coral   311   vossels,  with 3,150  sailors, yielding   in profit ������565,000.    But  the secular and worldly value of the coral  is   nothing   as   compared with the moral  and religious, as   when,  in my text, .'Job  employs it in comparison. I do not know  how   any   one   can   examine a coral the  'size of the thumb   nail  without bethinking himself of God and   worshiping him,  and  feeling   the   opposite   of   the   great  infidel   surgeon   lecturing to the medical  students in the   dissecting   room   upon a  human   eye   which   he held in his hand,  showing its wonders of   architecture and  adaptation, -when the idea  of God flashed  upon   him so powerfully   he cried oue to  the students, "Gentlemen, there is a God,  but   I   hate him!" Picking up a coral, 1  feel like crying out, '' There is a God, and 1  I adore him.*'  God and the __eautiful.  Nothing so impresses me with the fact  that   our   God   loves   the beautiful.  The  most beautiful   coral of the world   never  comes to human observation.  Sunrises and  sunsets   he   haugs up for nations to look  at; he   may   green   tho  grass aud round  the   dew     into     pearl     and set   on   fire  autumnal foliage to please   mortal sight,  but   those   thousands   of .miles of coral  achievement I think he has had built for  his   own   delight.    Ln   those  galleries he  alone can walk.  The music of those keys,  played' ou by tho lingers of the   wave, he  only   can hear.    The   snow of that white  and , thc bloom of that   crimson he alone  can seo. Having garnitured this world to  please the "human race and  lifted a glorious heaven to please   the   angelic intelligence,   1   am   glad that he   has   planted  these garden:4 of the deep   to  please himself.    But   here   and   there   God   allows  specimens   of   submarine    glory   to     be  brought, up and set before us- for sublime  contemplation. While I speak these great  nations   of   zoophytes,   meandrinas,  and  madrepores,   with    tentacles for trowel,  are building just such coral as we find in  our   text.    The   diamond   may be   more  rare, the crystal may   be more sparkling,  the chrysoprase may be  more ablaze, but  the coral  is thc   long,   deep,   everlasting  blush of the sea. Yet Job, who understood  all kinds of precious stones, declares that  the   beauty   and'  value   of, the coral are  nothing compared with our holy religion,  and ho   picks up this coraline   formation  and looks at it and flings   it   aside   with  nil tlie other beautiful things he hits ever  .'heard   of    and    cries   out ' in   ecstacy oi  admiration   for tho   superior qualities of  our religion, *'No mention shall be made  of coral."  Take   my   hand   and   we   will   walk  through this bower   of   the   sea   while I  ���������how you that even, exquisite coral is not  worthy   of   lioing   compared    with     the  i-i.iuor   jewels of   a   Christian soul.    The  first thing that strikes  me in looking   ai  , ____> -oral is its loug coat-cued accumulation.    It is not   uurued up like Cotopaxl,  but is an pu.but.ihg and  an   outbranch-  ing of ages.    In Polynesia there are reef������  hundreds   of feet deep   and  .1,6.9   miles  ���������long. Who built these reefs, these islands?  ��������� The   zoophytes,   the    corallines.   ' They  were   not   such   workers   who   built the  pyramids   as   were   these   masons, these  creatures of the .sea. What small creations  amounting   to   what   vast   aggregation!;  Who   can estimate the ages between   the  time when     the    madrepores    laid the  'foundations   of   the islands and the,time  when the madrepores put on the capstone  of   a completed work?   It puzzles all the  scientists   to   guess   through '.. how many  years   the   coralline's   were   building the  Sandwich   and ��������� Society   islands   and the  Marshall and'Gilbert groups.    But. more  slowly   and. wonderfully-' accumulative is  grace in the heart.   You   sometimes   get  discouraged   because   the   upbuilding by  the   soul   does   noc   go on more rapidly.  J  Why,    you have.all   eternity  to build in.  The little annoyances of life are zoophyte  builders,   and   there will be   small layer  on top of small layer   and fossilized grief  on the top of fossilized grief.    Grace does  not   go   up   rapidly   in your   soul, but,  blessed be God, it goes up.  Ten thousand  million   ages   will   not   finish you.   You  will never   be   finished.    On forever! Up  forever!    Out   of   the   sea of earthly disquietude will gradually rise the reefs, the  island.., the   continents;,   the   hemisnhers  of   grandeur    and    glory.    Men talk as  though in this life,  wo   only had time to  build.    But what we build in this life as  compared   with   what   we shall build in  tho   next   life   is. a.-*   a   striped shell to  Australia.    You   go   into-an  architect's  study   and there you seo   the sketch of a  temple the cornerstone   of which has not  yet been laid.    Oh, chat I could   have an  architectural sketch of   what you will be  after   eternity   has   wrought   upon you!  What pillars of strength!   What altars of  Bupernal worship! What pinnacles thrusting their glittering   spikes   into the   sun  that   never   sets!    You    do not scold the  corallines because'they   cannot   build an  island   in   a   day-  Why should you scold  yourself because   you   cannot complete a  temple   of   holiness for the   heart in this ,  short   lifetime?    You    tell me we do not  amount to much now, but   try us after a  thousand million ages of halleluiah.    Let  us   hear   the   angels   chant for a million  centuries.    Give us an. eternity with God  and   then   see   if   we   do not amount to  something.  More slowly and marvelously  accumulative   is   thc   grace   in   the soul  than   anything   I    can   think   o__    "No  j__e__t_on shall be made of coral.''  The Virtue of Patience.  I_ard, help us to learn that which most  of us are deficient in���������patience! If thou  canst take, through the sea anemones,  millions of years to build one bank of  coral, ought we not to be willing to do  work through ten years or 60 years .-. iti_r  thorough    Christian  a   picture.  ont oompiatnt, without restlessness, without rh^fl-ngr 0f spirit? Patience with the  erring; patience that we cannot have the  "millennium, in a few weeks; patience  with assault of antagonists; patience at  what seems a slow fulfillment of Bible  promises; patience with physical ailments; patience under delays of Providence; grand, glorious, all enduring, all  conquering patience! Patience like that  which my -.lately ascended friend, Dr.  Abel Steyens, describes when writing of  one of Wesley's preaphers, John Nelson,  Who, when a man had him put in prison  by false charges and being for a long  time tormented by his enemy, said,  "The Lord lifted up a standard when the  anger was, coming on like a flood, else I  should have wrung" his neck to the  ground and set my foot upon it." Patience like that of Pericles, the Athenian  statesman, who, when a man pursued  him to his own door, hurling at him  epithets and arriving there when it had  become dark, sen. his servant with a  torch to light his enemy hack to his  home, Patience like that eulogized by the  Spanish proverb when it says, "1 have  lost the rings, but here are the fingers  still." Patience! Thc sweetest sugar for  the sourest cup; the balanco wheel for all  mental and moral machinery; the foot  that treads into placidity stormiest lake;  the bridle for otherwise rash tongues;  the sublime silence that conquers the  boisterous and blatant. . Patience like  that of the most illustrious example of  all tho ages���������Jesus Christ; patient under  betrayal: patient under tho treatment of  Pilate's oyer and terminer; patient  under the expectoration of his assailants;  patient under flagellation; patient under  the charging spears of the Roman cavalry; patient unto death. Under all  exasperations employ it. Whatever comes  stand it. Hold on, wait, bear up.  .Cliiistian Hope.  Take my hand  again, and   we will go  a   little   farther   into this   garden of the  sea, and we shall iind   that in proportion-  as the climate is hot the coral in wealthy.  Draw two   isothermal lines at 00 degrees'  north and south oL" thc   equator, aud you  find the favorite.home of the coral. ��������� Go to  the   hottest   part of the- Pacific   seas and  you   find 'the   finest   specimens of coral.  Coral   is   a   child of thc fire.    But   more  wonderfully   do   the   heats   and   fires of  troublo   bring   out   the   'jewels    of .the  Christian soul.  Those are not the stalwart  men who are asleep on tho shaded   lawn,  but those   who   are   pounding   amid the  furnaces.    I   do   not   know  of any other  way   of   getting   a   thoroug  character.   "1   will   show you  Here are a father aud a another   30 on 35  years   of   age, their family around them.  It   is     Sabbath   morning.     They     have  prayers.    They   hear   tho children's catechism.    They   have prayers   every day of  the week.    They   aro in humble   circumstances.    But, after awhile   tho wheel of  fortune   turns up   aud   the man gets his  $20,000. Now ho has   prayers'on Sabbath  and   every   day   of ,.he week, but he lias,  dropped   the   catechism.    The   wheel of,  fortune turns   tip again, and   he gets his  $S0,0O0.    Now ho has prayers on Sabbath  morning   alone.   The   wheel   of   fortune  keeps   turning up, and   he has $200,000,  and   now   he   has   prayers   on   Sabbath  , morning when he   feels  like it and there  is   no   company.    The   wheel   of fortune  keeps   on     turning   up,   and he   has his  $300,000 and no prayers at all.   Four leaf  clover in a pasture field is not so   rare as  family   prayers in   the  houses  of people  who bare more than $300,000.    But now  " Bho   wheel of "fort-mo   turns   down, and  the man loses $300,000   out   of the $300,-  OO0.    Now on Sabbath morning   he. is on  a stepladder looking   for   a   Bible under  the old newspapers on the   bookcase.-  He  is going to have prayers.    His affairs are  more   and   more   complicated,   and after  awhile   crash   goes   his last dollar.   Now  he   has   prayers every   morning   and   he  hears his grandchildren say the catechism.  Prosperity   took   him   away   from God;  adversity   drove him back   to God.    Hot  climate to make the coral; hot and scalding trouble to make  -the   jewels of grace  in the soul.   We all hate   trouble and yet  it   does   a   great deal for   us.    You have  heard perhaps of that painter who wished  to get   an expression oil great distress for  his canvas and who had   his servant lash  a man fast and put him to great torture,  and   tben   the artist caught the look   on  the victim's face an*   Immediately trans- ;  ferred it to the can*nu_    Then   he, said to  the servant,   "Mor������ torture,"  aud.under ;  more torture there w*s   a more thorough ;  expression   of pain, and   the artist said: '  '' Stop there. Wait till I catch that express- ,  sion.    There!   Now   1   have it upon   the  canvas.    Let loose ths yictira.    I. have  a  work that will last ftnwver.''   '..Oh," you  say,   "he was an inlMnnan painter!';'    No  doubt about it.    Trouble  is cruel and inhuman, but he is a great .painter and out  of ' our : tears and blood on his1 palette he  makes colors that never.die.    Oh, that it  might be a picture __t Christian fortitude,  of shining hope! .  On   the   day   I *otm liceaacd to preach  tlie   gospel   an   old Christian man   took  my hand and said,   "My   son, when you  get in a tight corner on   Saturday night,  without any sermon.,   send for me, and I  will preach for yon." Well, it was a great  encouragement   to be backed  up by such  a good old minister, and   it was not long  before I got into a tight corner on Saturday night,   without   any  sermon, and   I  sent, for the   old minister,   and   he came  and preached, and it was the last sermon  he   ever    preached.     All     the     tears   I  cried     at      his      funeral       could      not  express   my     affection    for     that   man,  who was willing to help me out of a tight  corner.    Ah,   my   friends,    that   is whan  we all want���������somebody to help us out of  a   tight   corner.   Yoa   are   in   one now.  How   do   I   know   it?     I   am   used   to  judging   of   human  countenances, and I  see   beyond   the   smile   and   beyond  thc  courageous   look   with   which   you   hide  your   feelings   from   others.   I know you  are in a tight corner. What to do?   Do as  I did when I sent for   old Dr. Scott.    Do  better than I did���������send for the Lord God  of I-taniei,   and   of   Joshua, and of every  O-bea- man who   got   into a tight corner.  "Oh," says some one,   "why cannot God  develop me through  prosperity instead of  through adversity?"    I   will answer your  question   by   asking   another.   Why does  not God dye our northern and   temperate  sea* with coral*   Y&s. _������y, "The water is  not hot enough."' There! In answering  my question you have answered your  owru Hot climates for richest specimens  of coral; hot trouble for the jewels of the  souh The coral fishers going out from  Torre del Greece never brought ashore  such fine specimens as are brought out of  the scalding surge., of -misfortune. I  look down into the tropical.sea, and there  is, something that looks like blood, and  I say, "Has there been a great battle  down there?" Seeming blood scattered all  up and down tne reel's. It is the blood of  the coral, and it makes me think'of  those who come out of groat tribulation.  Again I take your hand, and we walk  on through tins garden of the sea and  look more particularly than wc did at  the beauty of thc coral. The poets have  all been fascinated with it. One of them  wrote:���������  There, with a broad and easy motion,  The fan coral sweeps through tho clear  deep '- 4a,  And the ye_u>w and   scarlet   tufts of the  ocean  Aro bent like corn on the upland   lea.  Covsil Spuci.i_.eiis.  One specimen of coral is called the  dehdrophilia because it is liko a tree;  another is called tlie astrara because it is  like a star; another is called the brain  coral because it is like the convolutions of  the human brain; another is called fan  coral because it is like the instrument  with which you cool yourself on a hot  day; another specimen is called the organ  pipe coral because it resembles the king of  musical instruments. All the flowers  and all the shrubs in tho gardens of the  land have their correspondencies in this  garden of tho sea. Corallum! It is a  synonym for beauty. And 'yet there is no  beauty in' tho cored compared with our  religion. It gives physiognomic beauty.  It does not change the features. It does  not give the features with which the person was not originally endowed, but it  sets behind the features of the homeliest  person a heaven that shines clear through.  So that often on first acquaintance you  said of a man,4" "He. is tho homeliest person I ever saw," when, after'you came  to understand him and his nobility of  soul shining through his countenance,  you said, "Ho is the loveliest person I  ever saw." No one ever had a homely  Christian* mother. Whatever thc world  may have thought of her, there were two  who thought well;���������your father, who had  admired her. for 50 years, and yoii, over  whom she bent with so many tender  ministrations. Whon you think of the  angels of God and your mother among  them, she outshines them all. Oh,' that  our young people could understand that  there is nothing that so much beautifies  the human countenance as the religion  of   Jesus   Christ.  Near my early home there was a place  called the Two Bridges. These bridges  leaped the two streams. Well,-my friends,  the religion of .lesus Christ is two  bridges. It bridges all the past. It arches  and overspans all the future. It makes  the dying pillow1- the landing place of  angels fresh from glory. It turns the  sepulcher into a May time orchard. It  catches up the dying into full orchestra.  Corallum! And yet that does not express  the beauty. "No mention shall be made  of coral." *���������  I take your hand again and walk a  little farther on in this garden of the sea  and I notice the durability or the work  of the coral. Montgomery speaks of it.  He says, "Frail were their forms, ephe-  uaral their lives, their masonry imperishable." Bhizopods are insects so small  they are invisible, and yet they built.the  Appenines and they planted for their  own monument the Cordilleras. It takes  187,000,000 of them to make one grain.  Corals are changing the navigation of  the sea, saying to the commerce of the  world, "Take this channel," "Take  that channel,'' "Avoid the other channel.''  Animalcules, beating back the Atlantic  and Pacific seas. If - the insects of the  ocean have built a reef 1,000 miles long'  who knows but that they may yet build  a reef 3,000 miles long, and thus that by  one stone bridge Europe shall be united  with this con-incut on one side and by  another stone bridge Asia will be united  with this continent on the other side,  ���������and the tourist of the world, without the  turn of a steamer's wheel or the spread  of a skip's sail, may go all around the  world, and thus be fulfilled the prophecy,  "There shall be no more sea."  Power of Little Things.  Little things decide great things. All  that tremendous career of the last  Napoleon hanging on tho hand of a  brakeman who, on one of our American  railways, caught him as he was falling  between the cars of a flying train Thc  battle of Dunbar was decided against tbe  Scotch because their matches had given  out. Aggregations of little things that  pull down or build up. When an army or  a regiment come to a bridge they arc  always commanded to break ranks, for  the simultaneous tread will destroy the  strongest bridge.  A bridge at Angiors, France, and a  bridge at Bronghton, England, went  down because the regiment kept step  while crossing. Aggregations of temptation, aggregations of sorrow, aggregations of assault, aggregations of Christian effort, aggregations of self-sacrifices  ���������these make tlie irresistible power to  demolish or to uplift, to destroy or ._  save. Little causes and great results.  Christianity was introduced into Japan  by the falling overboard of a pocket Bible  from a ship in the harbor of Tokyo.  Written on the fly loaf.of one of my  books .by one whom God took to himself  out of'our household wero the following  words. I do not know who composed  them. Perhaps she composed them herself:���������  Cast  tny'   care  for thee.  f  upon him, and he'll care'  For the God  that planted in   thy   breast]  a soul        , i  On    his    sacred   tables   cloth   thy   namef  enroll. \  Cheer thine   heart, thou   trembler, neverj  faithless be. j  Ho   that   iharks   the   sparrow   will   re-'  member thee.  Oh,    be   encouraged!    Do not any man j  sav   "My work is so small."   Do not any'  woman say: "My   work   is   so ins.jgnifi-1  cant. 1 cannot do anything   for   the upbuilding of God's, Kingdom.'*    You   can.  Remember   tho   corallines.    A   Christian {  mother   sat   sowing   a  garment, and her  little girl wanted to help   her, and so she  sewed   on   another   piece     of   the   same (  garment   and   brought  ' t to her 'mother, .  and tbo work was correcti-d.    It was imperfect and had to be all taken out again. '  But did tho mother ohiri������ the child?   Oh, ,'  no.    She said,    "She wanted to help me,  and she   did as well as slie could."    And  so   the   mother   blessed   the   child, and  whilo she   blessed  tho   child she thought  of herself and said:    "Perhaps it may  be  so with   my   poor work at tho last.   God [  will look at it. It may bo very imperfect,,  and I know it is veiy crooked.    He   may j  have   to   take   it  air out. But ho knows  that I want to serve him, and he   knows,  it is the,best that 1 can do."   So bo com-1  forted   in   your   Christian   work.      Five  thousand   million    corallines   made   one  corallum.    And   then   they passed   away  and other millions came, and the work is l  wonderful.    But   on   the   day   when the  world's redemption shall be consummated,  and   the   names   of   all   tho   millions of j  Christians who in all ages have toiled on t  this'  structure   shall   be   read, the work;  will appear so grand and the achievement  so glorious' and the dufability so everlast- ]  ing that "no   mention shall   be made of  coral!.''
