Result not good financially -as expenses were increased.  Difference being nearly $1 in work  like, push'.ng, brushing, &c.    It was  ] all humbug about one white   being  1 . ...

Number of convictions since   Jan  o  1st '98 to date, 73  whites,   11 Chi- \  nese, 5 Japs, 19 Indians.    Thought  Chine-e concealed crime.

O'a'0>*,O'*,0n**O'*'0,*'O 0***O***O'*'0'**O**'0**4O  When I-retired from detective work  after an experience of 1G years, the  public press and iny many friends were  ��������� ' pleased to say that I had done excellent service. On the whole, this praise  was deserved,'but-at the same time, in  - one-case. at. least, I had shown a stupidity worthy of the greenest patrol-,  man' on London's police force.    1 had  been at Scotland Yard for three^years  -when I removed my family to C_ueen  %1 street. It was to.an apartment house,  and we took the second floor. 'On4 the  floor above was a married couple named Hadan. The man, as I came to understand, .was a manufacturing -jeweler  in' a small way. ��������� The Hadans lived  very quietly and made no display, and  the, wife kept very much lo herself.  Not as a detective,-but as an occupant.  . I learned,, that' the husband was, home  only two nights per week���������that is. he  'Came home at G o'clock on two even-  .ings out'of the seven, remained over-  4 night and to breakfast and was seen  no more for'Ave days. This had,been  the programme  for a year before  I  , came tothe house, and 1 was not a bit  curious over it. '  \ ��������� At about the.timo of my removal I  was set to watch in a general way*a  'certain dealer .in bric-a-brae named  Saunders. His shop was a good three  miles from Queen street. He dealt in  all manner of art goods second hand,  Montgomery place and bad a wife and  two children. By the merest accident  I further learned that Mr. Davison was  home only three nights per week, and  I nm honest enough to confess that I  did 'not connect the circumstance with-  the domestic life of Hadan or Saunders. The reason I didn't was because 1  had not yet suspected Hadan of any-  tl) in tr aiiu"-"!������eeause 1 had no case  ��������� against the other two.  As   .'o,  r-Iadau.   living^in   the   same  ?���������*���������(>use  witli  tne.  lie cultivated  my  ac-  ������������������*ni,.in?nn'-o.  'Fie  told   me, of his  business, invited me to lunch with bim aud  ���������... o.j ������v.]pic and oi-eu as an.v man I  ever met.   On.half a dozen occasions  he invited me to drop into his'/work--  rooms   in ' case   I ��������� found   myself   near  them, and I admit I took quit-v a'liking  to him.   nis wife was more,'reserved  and. less to be seen, but yet-thc four'of  us went to^the theater occasionally ln  company, and she was agreeable if not  talkative.    Hadan   was  a ' fair   sized  man, who always shaved smooth.  His  reddish hair was scant, oiie of.his front  teeth  broken, ,and he  limped a little,  from an old accident.   Any policeman  could have picked him out of a crowd  on   a, description.   'Saunders , was   a  larger  man,  with   hair turning  gray;-  perfect teeth and side whiskers.  Davison was a smaller man than the other  two,   with   black   hair,  a   black   inus-  'tach'e and  a   prominent  wart" on chis  cheek. ���������  Hadan , had   the,  voice   of   a  woman;   Saunders   spoke   slowly  and  .with a'grow-V Davison had what might  be-termed-a fair voice.  Now,' then/for six years I knew these  1 three 0men, and^twp of them were un-  'der espionage.- I talked with them, ate  with them, drank with them and never  imbibed the'faintest idea that I was  the biggest fool in tlie world.  One day  a man who was in a machine shop not  *-far from  detective headquarters  was  killed by accident.   I  happened to be  almost the first one on hand.   I recognized him at once as the tailor, and the  , body  was  taken  home.   While doing  ,his work tbe undertaker found that the  black   hair  and   mustache   and   wart  awere all false.   This-was-a revelation  even to the wife.  The -affair was published in the papers and in less than  two days  it was  found that Hadan,  Saunders and Dav.ison were one and  the same man. He had padded his .body  to   increase   his   size' and   apparent  weight, and a .false  tooth, ^ whiskers,  mustache and a wart had done the rest.  You will say I ought to have detected  the cheat by the voice.  In an ordinary  case, yes,' but this man had made- a  study of"disguising his voice and was  doubtless   a   natural, mimic  to' begin  with.   I never caught a' tone to make  me suspect.--  You will say that1'a good detective  ought to penetrate synch shallow disguises as false whiskers." In answer  to that let me "say that whiskers or  mustache'can be made to look so genuine that no living mam can detect the  cheat. The wart v;,ns a new dodge and  one 1 was not up to. It was so well  done that I had seen the man prick it  with a pin and cringe a little as he did  it. I should have felt bad enough at  being fooled even  had thero been no  "'Why. Diess me. no!' But.- since you  mention it, 1 thought the cream that I  poured in my coffee seemed to have  been stirred round, and you notice my  spoon lies here beside my cup."  ,,  ���������Mr.. Crawford  afterward,, explained  that he had become so accustomed to  .earthquakes in  Italy that he... seldom  paid auy attention  to them and that"  "not   Infrequently   they,   would   occur,  without his notice., . ,- '  Hits  Appearance  Agalna--  Him.

In 'watching him I assumed another identity and became a  customer. We came to be on quite  friendly terms, and I flattered myself  that be had not the slightest suspicion  of the part I was playing. At one  time and another I was the means of  . enabling a number of householders to  recover stolen goods Saunders had  bought, but the man always evaded tlie  law. I got to know that- lie lived in  Jane street, only a few blocks away,  where he had a wife -and one child.  One of our men occupied a room iu the  same house, and in a casual way he  had learned that Saunders was home  only two nights per week. Fie came  and went as did ray neighbor Hadan.  A year after I' began' watching the  bric-a-brac shop there Were complaints!  made about, a certain merchant tailor  named Davison. lie was making suits  to order so cheap that other tailors declared the goods must be stolen. As a  matter of fact ���������several bolts of cloth  stolen from a tailcr in a town 50 miles  away were found in his shop, but he  proved himself clear of the law by a  narrow margin. 1 became a customer  and an acquaintance. I brought customers to him. as I had to Saunders.  There w*ere many times when we had  a glass of ale and a pipe together, and  from the very outset 1 used my best  efforts to get ou to his little game.  Tie continued to make suits to order-  far cheaper than his rivals, but though  his shop was searched again and again  no more suspicious goods were found.  Davison was full of talk and seemed  to be without suspicion, but I got no  information froin him to help iny case.  I . early  ascertained   that  he  lived   in  case in it, but there was a case. The  silversmith was a "fence" for thieves,  tho bric-a-brae man was another, and  the tailor was a third. lie was married to three different women; he lived  in three different parts of the city: he  carried ou three occupations; he repre-'  sented three different mon. All this  he did successfully for six or seven  years and but for the fatal'accident  might have gone on for - years more.  During his career he had made a fortune, and never a person had suspected tlie disguises. It seems as if a wife  should have detected them, but the  three did not, or at least so claimed.  He divided his time' between them,  passed as a respectable member of society, and they accepted his excuses for  his absence without question. In each  case he told his wives that he traveled  so many days per week, and ,in each  case he left the house and returned to  it with hand baggage. Yes; I was made  a fool of; but. fortunately. I was the  only one who knew it. and 1 may give  the fact away now without my identity  being suspected. It would have added  more glory to my record to have caught  up the sly rascal, but now and then  the sharpest of our profession are outwitted, and if I made a stupid blunder  in the one ease I have offset it a dozen  times over in making a success of others.    '        *  _Sartlicinnl.es Didn't Disturb Him.  \In the winter of 1899 .Marion Crawford was in San Francisco on a lecture  tour under Major Pond of New York,  who related the following incident: It  was during his sojourn in the city that  San Francisco was visited by a rather  severe earthquake. The novelist was  stopping at the Palace hotel. Many of  the guests had never experienced such  a-tremor' It was shortly before midnight, and many were in their rooms  asleep. In a few seconds there were  the greatest consternation and terror.  The halls were filled with excited men  aud women, and. for awhile a panic  was imminent. . After quiet had been  restored Mr. Crawford was discovered  in tlie cafe by an excited friend. He  was sitting at a table eating and reading a paper. His friend rushed up to  him and in breathless excitement exclaimed. "Did you feel it?"  ���������'Feel what?" asked Mr. Crawford.  "The earthquake."  "I wonder, Thaddeus," said my swife  doubtfully, giving me a searchlight  look, "if ypu could get your own dinner  tonight. I want1 to" go to a meeting of  the Suffrage club, and the maid'is going out." \ - . ~     v  Now, it has always seemed to me  that the more a' man asserts his independence the better. ' I , felt, pretty  doubtful about .that , dinner, -but ��������� I  wasn't going to,Jet Maria know-.I had'  any qualms. I remembered, too, I had  managed well at bachelor housekeep-;  ing for" a few -weeks. I had everything  convenient; never made the beds because it ,was so well to let them air  thoroughly, and because I believed In  consolidation and that in union there  is/strength I did not wash my dishes,  but let them collect and the day before  my mother returned,put them.in a tub  and turned the hose on them. '  "The success of.this venture' en.bo.d-'  ened ine to try again, but-for reasons  best known to. my owii, soul 1 did not  tell Maria. I simply, said I could manage and would really enjoy the novel'  performance of getting my own dinner  and that it would by no "meansv prove  fatal. I resolved two things firmly���������  that I should have a good dinner irrespective of the- germ theory, microbes  and bacilli and that the dinner should  be at G o'clock promptly. This not having meals on time. I felt, was all nonsense, and while Maria was away was  surely tho time to indulge in microbes,  for she feared them so she had given *  me*4 a restricted diet. That day I left  the office at 4 o'clock. I had been thinking at intervals during the day what I  should have for that dinner.- Iceven  meditated corned beef, cabbage, mince  pie and doughnuts. All of them I would  make myself afteiM left tbe oltlce.  I procured on the way home the  necessary supplies. An alluring display met my eyes. I wont into the  market and purchased a nice plate  piece of corned beef. I was about to  tell the butcher I would carry it with  me for my G o'clock dinner when the  butcher, who knew me pretty well,  assured me that the corned beef had  to boil a number of hours to be done.  In the reaction which followed this announcement I remembered "that he  could send it for ihe next day; I had  meant that all along," and I hastily  purchased some oysters and lamb  chops. "1 will have oyster soup for  the first course." said 1 to myself, "and  chops and tomatoes for the second. If  that won't be good, I don't know what  will."  It was 5 o'clock when I gotrhome.  It was so lonely without Maria that 1  thought I had better start, the dinner  at once; besides, I wanted that meal  at G o'clock sharp: Maria had about  bothered the life out of me by not  having meals ,on time.. 1 lighted  the burners on the gas stove, and I  decided to make biscuit, mince pie  and doughnuts, besides cooking the  oysters and tlie meat. By 5:30 1 was  just enjoying the thing. I had the milk  for the oysters contentedly boiling on'  one of the burners, and the others had  been blazing for some time, all ready  for use when wanted. The first thing  I did: was to find a cookbook.  I ran down the index through pumpkin, lemon, carrot, custard, until I got  to mince pie. This I read carefully.  Then I sadly closed the book. Mince  pie required cold meat, apples and a  thousand other things and could not  be made in an impromptu manner,  and at G 1 must have that dinner. I  felt distressed, but there.were still the  doughnuts. 1 was just in the midst  of discovering it would take at least  a good two Hours to make doughnuts  whon, by thunder, didn't that milk  boil over! I felt like going through the  whole litany. 1 rushed to the stove,  seized my clean handkerchief and had  Just made up my mind that the milk  must be done enough for, the, oysters  when 1 discovered the handkerchief  was done also.  The crisis being past. I decided ,to  make my biscuit. 1 thought this time  I would not consult tbe cookbook, for  it' was getting along toward 6, and it  took-too ' long to' hunt up recipes. 1  put a, great deal of flour in a small  bowl, dumped in some water, arid proceeded to mold . it all into . shape aa  I had seen Maria, often do., In the  interim I talked to myself.   ' ..  "1 know all about this." I said with  pride." "you just' stir until It gets the  consistency of cream, put In a pinch  of salt and flavor to taste."- That's  what they always 6ay. lhave read It  hundreds of times. 1 can't fail. \ I  shall just slap them into a tin pan and  put them'In the oven." 1 felt'Ir was  succeeding so weM that 1 actually began to bum, "when suddenly It occurred  to. me to wonder ,lf one greased the  tins. < "When In doubt, don't grease"  I said to myself, and I quickly-decorated tbe pans with dabs of dough.  Five minutes later 1 had a sickening  feeling, ��������� for Maria' had never told me  about .the oven.    1 felt sure, however/  that, being a man. 1 would understand  any   such   mechanical   contrivance'' as  a gas; stove,   i wondered what' under  the sun , possessed the  Inventor' of a  gas stove to,'put the oven down near  the floor,    lam rather a portly man,  and   getting  down   on   my   knees  lo  .cok Into that .old' oven wasn't an easy  '] .thing.. returned on the-gas and went  'for the ���������������������������match]''   When < I * came 'back  and crawled on, my hands and knees  ;to  light cthe ���������>jet���������great , heavens!���������an  explosion occurred that /sent ,me half  across the room.    In the, middle of it  all I''heard that infernal-milk boiling  over again.   "       .        .    '    \ <        -y   r  The    greatest "' of    natures,    when  aroused^ sometimes become terrible.'  . I felt murderous."   I also felt desperate.   I* gradually approached that oven  again assumed the attitude of prayer  and put those biscuits in with a'slam.  I was perspiring all over.  ,1 took, off  my tie and collar and looked at my  watch.  < It was 6:30.    I -was to have?  dinner at G, and the tomatoes were not  touched  yet!    1/wiped  them  off, ,gojt  the butcher\knife' and  began to ��������� peel  them, .for  1 reflected  Iliad 'no  time  to.waste in cooking -them/  I would cat those microbes alive.  Life'at this,crisis seemed of little worth*  anyway. I had.read somewhere-that  tomatoes should be skinned, uot peeled^;  but the more <l~ /"tried to skin ?those  pesky .things tho more the insides came  too.- A" terrible expression .came over  my'face. 1 did not know but'my'usually4 kind disposition was* ruined''for  life, but I felt sure of the'biscuits arid  the oyster soup���������what remained of it.  Then I put the chops on the fire. It  was about 7. The chops immediately  started to see~ if tiiey could not beat  tbe soup and sputtered and blazed to  such "an extent that I felt desperate. I  was watching them every moment  when I thought aloud: "By Jove, there  are the biscuits! Perhaps I had better  look at them." They were, all there,  but somehow they - looked dejected.  While I was finding.out from the cookbook (which I immediately consulted)  that 1.ought to have put baking powder in tbem the smell of burned flesh  made me rush to the stove, only to find  nay choys black ancl beyond rescue. I  felt myself an unfortunate man. I began to mumble incoherently,to myself,  and I feared that it was all going to  work upon my brain. .With the astuteness that, characterizes me as distinguished from my fellow men I gave up  all"efforts. At this moment, because  all hope "was lost and I was on the lookout for misfortunes, I cried out. "Blamed if 1 haven't forgotten the potatoes!"  I had the look of one of'the early  Christian martyrs. They, too/had,suffered and loved,and lost. Even the invectives I had used were not sulphurous enough.  I went out into the shed and brought  back a pail. Into that I scraped tho  soup carefully. Next I dumped in tho  biscuit. Then 1 gently put the tomatoes ancl chops on top. This accomplished, I passed hurriedly out into the  back yard, stopping only to get a shovel out of the wood shed. 1 dug a hole  and tossed the whole thing in. Then I  meekly returned to the house and regaled myself on some bread and butter  which I found in the pantry. . Just,as  I was doing this the clock struck 8.  and Maria came home.  "Hello, dear!" I cried, for I .was determined to forestall any remarks.  "I've been terribly busy, detained at  the office] and just got home."  "Oh, Thaddeus!" said Maria regretfully. "And you have been without  your dinner! I never should have left  you if"���������  By this time Maria had seen the  kitchen.  '.'Maria," said I solemnly, for I saw  her pause, "you have been invited to  join ,a club for tbe subjugation of husbands. You needn't join. I am subju-  gated*already. You women are always  talking of 'our sphere.' Encroach on  man's sphere if you will, but for heaven's sake don't ask me again to encroach on yours!"���������New York Herald.  FALCON  ISLAND REAPPEARS  The Little Pacific Island Which Disappeared Comei Aeain. Into  View.  .Falcon   island,  which, early, in  1S92-  was reported to have completely disap- -  peared  beneath the'waves of the'Pacific', is again showing its flat surface '-  above - the ��������� water.    The lifer history-of   <  this speck of  land   has been  unusual'  and interesting.   A cable dispatch" from,1-  Europe printed Iu April last year said '  that after a brief life of 14 years Fal-   -  con" island,had ceased to exist.    It was  thought that no trace of it would, ever -  ,bu seen again.    But  Mr.   Vossion.' the  .consul general of France in','the Tonga  group,   announces   that   Commandant  Ravenhill of the cruiser "Porpoise has.  returned to those islands from .a cruise  in the Pacific witb the news of the re-''  emergence of Falcon island.   Tie says  that the highest part of the island4 is  now about 1G feet above sea level.   -  The' island  was  formed  by a. great '  volcanic eruption at the bottom of the s  sea in  1SS5. " It took' the  waves and  storms of the, ocean  14 years entirely  to ohliteratc.it.    Mr. J. J.  Lister, who  visited the island a short time' before it  disappeared, said, that'it was rapidly"1  being torn to ��������� pieces by the' action of t-  the, waves. ,. Unless  a   fresh   volcanic <>-  outburst .occurred he thouglit it would  soon, disappear. ��������� His' prediction came '  true,  and  a, steamer, that'"visited /the '  place about the begirining-of-last'year ���������'  reported that uot a '.trace' of it was to  ,'be found above the water level.     -, '  * The Island was built up" in the neighborhood of the Tonga group, about '3"������'  miles  from  the Island  of Tofooa.     A '  .submarine   volcano, had 'reared   from  .the bottom or the oc^an a triighty mass,,  of ejecta, and on this; foundation rested./  the outpourings which rose above the -' ,  water.'   Tbe .island   consisted;, of two" ''.  .distinct .parts.    One of them was a hill  of gentle slope and .wide base,' whose- ���������*  height was lriS1/. feet.   On'brie, side the    .  hill  ended   abruptly   in, a  cliff   whose 0%  base was washed, by the sea-at high  water.    The other" part of the ^island  was a flat, extending^away from the  base of the hill in a northerly direction'  and only 10.to-12 feet above the high  tide level..  The" whole bit of land was'  just   a   bare,* browr.   l.e������.p - of   ashes  around .which  the greatr rollers broUe  nnd   swept   up'  the. black- .shores . in  sheets of foam.

The latest device tor economizing'  fuel in steam furnaces- has been,  brought forward in association with  the name of Professor" Llnde, well  known as tbe first man to put the industry of refrigeration���������otherwise cold  storage^���������on a commercial basis. Professor Linde, as is well known, has  lately been giving his attention to the  industrial production ol liquid air. in  which he bas been fairly successful.  The liquid air can be supplied lu any '  required quantit**. but the uses to  which it can be profitably applied have  not developed in the same proportion.  Professor Linde now proposes to em:  ploy liquid air in conjunction with coke  or inferior fuel' in steam boiler furnaces. It- is stated that after giving  off the nitrogen a gas remains that  consists o-f HO per ceut of oxygen that  can be profitably used in boiler furnaces nt tbe present high price of fuel.

__�� ���������������  n  -*  That  Lossing Gal  ������������������ ��������� ���������  BY T. C. DEAN.  *   , As the days passed this sensation he-  ���������carnc moro and moro marked.    Not/1ha-  f  ' '       Elizabeth   could   complain   of   any   lack  ?        ������1' effort, or any hick  ol" demonstration  '   on thc part, of her bel rot lied: hut soii-e-  ' ' .      times,  whon he did  not   think  hor near  him, he did not' pcein  io ho  taking any  interest  in   the   thiuy.s   ho   professed   to  revere.     She fought against'this son.a-  ';   ' .lion,  and, tried  to mako Jiorsoll"  heliove  il was a foolish prejudice, hut the inor.  fche  fought  against it  the  more  it  an-  .' ' iioyed  and  troubled her.     Ono day 'she  surprised   him   in   an   arbour   Avith     a  strange woman,  and  they wero  talking  <   loudly,  but instantly   changed  thoir  demeanor as they perceived her.    lie explained this  by  saying that  thoy  were  - rehearsing    amateur    theatricals.      and  'though   she   tried   to   believe   this,   she  found she could .not.     Again  one night,  as she leaned out of her eii.soiiioiit'drinlv-v  ,ing in the beauty of the bright southern  starlight,    she   fancied    sho    heard    the  noise of men quiii-rel'iN'' hi  n  more, distant part  of  the story   upon   which ���������her  room   was ��������� situated.      With    a   sudden  -curosity  she stepped  -"Hit on  the top' of  r a   verandah,  and   by   .���������������������������I  .-.thiolic,  move-  F ,f" ment  sh--  sttuiis  hor.-i-if  onto  the   roof  -    vf   one, of ��������� the   lower   wings,   aud   was  soon at  the-window  of  the  room  from  -'   ,' which  thc  sounds "haci  proceeded.     A.II'  was quietness hero now, except for some  friendly 'conversation,   which   somewhat  ���������puzzled her.    For she -noloci  that   whon  ���������one   would   say   "'My   edge.-"     another'  - , would  scrnetime's answer.   "I'll  straddle  '.Ton,-or  "1*11 .chip a   fiver,"1 or  -'I'll   go  you "a chip bettor."-or  "fivr- moro than  f      yon."    Added to these remarks'she also  ���������fancied she  could    hour    the  clink  of  -glasses.

They would not J--"m  while matters stood as they did. , Oh!  ,how glad she was, that she had heeded  the voice in her heart that had warned  her, against hor cousin". Sho had .gone  to that window a short, time before a  trusting girl, but sh-> nail J  her own room an alert woman. Sh<*-  passed a sleepless night,' even though  she called up her maid "to sleep with  her on the plea of a slight illness.  The next day"after a good sleep in the,  daylight,   in   order   to 'dear   her  brain,  she--made   up  her   mind   that   she  n.u-.���������  leave   the/Claymore     domicile'  , before  evening.    She knew  that she could not  disguise   the   fact   that <>a   change   had  come over her and she trembled to think  what these men might do to her before  sho was all prepared  for them,  if once  her   disloyalty   to   Claymore     was  sus-  J'pected.   She told her aunt that "she was  sure   the   fume's  of  tlmr coal  gas  from,  the   kitchen   range     was'   injuring  her  health,  a< her aunt-could see she" wa.  breaking down,   and she  had  made up  her mind _ to  change her apartments to  the   hotel  in the* next  block,   until  the  day   set  for  the, nuptials."     Of course  rthis   determination,   of   hers   caused ' a  great commotion, and her aunt said sho  believed   Elizabeth's   mind  - was   being  aftected  by  Uie  excitement  of  her  approaching wedding.but Elizabeth carried  out  her  poinL   and  when  once   beyond  tlie pale of the Claymore household slie  breathed  more freely.    'From  tho,hotel  she   continued   her   investigations .in   a  most secret way. First "she wrote to Mr.  James Claymore that, the excitement in-4  cident rto  her  coming  change  of  name  had caused her-nervous'*prostration, arid  that he was to make uo attempt to see  her, for  a'  week  ui   least,  and   that  he  was   to   annuonce   that   c_n. account  of  her indisposition the marriage was postponed   for   two  weeks.     If   he, did not  asree   to   this,   slie   informed   him,   lr__  wedding would never take place.  ,   He wrote her a -very tender epistle in  reply,  fully -agreei.ig to-all  her wishes.'  ���������-.nd concluded his letter by stating that  though her desires were law to him, he  would be lonesome without her presence.  Then    Elizabeth     telegraphed    tc    n  prominent  New  York  lawyer,   a  friend  of  her father's,   to 'come  to  her  in  St.  Augustine   at   once. ,. She  met   him  at  the   depot   when   he   arrived.   ' and   hi-  tortned' him   of   her   approaching* mar-',  ri'agc" with   James  Claymore,' and   continued:    "Mr.  J-.i_rr.ay,   I wish  you.  in  the most secret way to find out for me  'jill about my mother's will, and'all about  the standing of the 'Claymore property.  You are not to see me or communicate  with me    while  doing this.     When, you  have  finished, you  are to .send in your  report   to   me   in   writing   by   a   special  .messenger, together with your bill.    Do  you understand mo?"  The lawyer smiled, and shook her by  the handv\vilhout replying, other than  ���������wishing "-Fier  "good  day."  In a"few,days.Elizabeth received .Taf-  toy's  report.   'It  informed her that the  c'ntiVe  Claymore   estate,   had   been   pur-  -ehased  from, the  proceeds of what had  boon   legally  left   by  Mrs.  T_ossing to  a  daughter ������"fliers,  named Elizabeth, but  that   the  Claymore  estate  was  now, so  encumbered   with  mortgages  that then,  was   not  a   nickle   of  equity  left  in  it.  The  Eagle Bill gold mine in California,  had   been  left  in   such   a  shape   at the  suggestion   of  Bert   Howland,  Unit   the  United States Supreme Court was really  the trust'-e of the property,  and so/fhe  Claymore's had been unable to lay their  I amis upon it, thou-.li the court records  showed they had often tried.    This was  all  the property  Elizabeth Lossing possessed,  though  the  executors   were  receiving ,-v"blind" rental of $1000 a year  for some Boston property which did not  now   exist,   having   been  sold   by   Claymore   for fifty  times  that   sum.     There  was, however, a cash credit in Elizabeth  Lossing's favor in the Seventh National  Bank 'of   ?-_0,000.   which   the   Supremo  T.ourt  had   paid,in to  said  bank,   from  rc-venys of the Eagle Bill mine.

The other day I read'an account, of a  young fellow of 21 -who was convicted for  the twenty-eighth time as a drunk and  disorderly. The poor wretch openly boasted in court that he intended to break the  record previously held, I believeP by thc  late, unlamented Jane 'Cakebreacl, who  was ,convicted:more than 400 times'of the  Baine offense.  Iu 'the many prisons I have myself visited I have found exactly the same deplorable state of affairs with regard,to  theft, burglary and kindred crimes. In'  one English prison, for instance, ,1 saw a  m.'iu about.40 who had spent nearly 30  years'*of. hist life .in reformatories' and  prisons. His family' was -most respectable.-, and he had had every ' assistance,  but it was no'use. He was a crook, and,  he simply couldn't go straight.  To punish these miseral '��������������� people, with  terms of imprisonment anu then let them  loose to commit new crimes���������practically  their only possible chance "of getting,  tread and butter���������is about as sensible.as  it)would be to discharge a scarlet fever  patient from'a hospital during the-scaling period of the disease. Yet.year after-  year we go .blundering along, knowing  perfectly well that our reformatories and  prisons are simply academies of crime,,  centers of infection from which the moral  disease is unceasingly spread:  \ .  "  ', Now, this is one of* those things which  they manage~"~aT"great deal vbetter l in,,  France, and how they do it is what I proposed tell here.

Moreover, he has got  to work, and, if Lie won't'lib that he will  ..id his food cut down and himself in a  prison, which is made just about as un-  ���������omfortable for him aslt can be.--  France possesses two of these dump-,  ng grounds <for human refuse, as they'  may justly be called. One-is French,  Guiana, which is about one of, the"best  places | in the world to -get out of and  -top away from. The other is the isle  of Pines, which is a coral fringed paradise far away in the south Pacific, one  of the most beautiful spots ever trodden*  by human feet or" darkened by the'presence of human crime. 4  It is on the isle of Pines that the first  process of compulsory reformation bo-  gins. The hard cases are lodged in barracks, fed and taught, possibly for the  first timo in their lives, how to do useful work.  Their working day is about seven hours  aud a half.'and from what I have seen  of them they are well treated, well fed  and by no means overworked. Of course  very few of them know anything about a  trade. Their only idea in life has been  to loaf from the cradle to the grave.  Those who can never be made into workmen or workwomen are put on tho fields,  farms and coffee plantations.' Others are  taught trades, and gradually the aimless,  shiftless loafer of the slums becomes a  more or less skillful carpenter, blacksmith, wheelwright or stonemason,  v The" women work -ia' the fields just as  the free peasant women do in Franco or  taught straw plaiting, hatmaking and  that kind of work.  Those who conduct themselves well nnd  really try to work can earn a few sous a  day. Half their earnings is saved for  them by the government against th������* dav  oi partial release. The other half they  are allowed to spend on little luxuries  which cf course always take the form of  something to eat or drink or smoke.  All this time they are under "what is ���������  practically prison discipline, and it ia  wonderful how quickly,this shapes the  bully and blackguard'of the'streets into  the decent industrious workman, who  knows that good work and good "behavior  ,v*ill win him comparative freedom and'  the right to live a really pleasanter life  than he could.ever have led as a criminal  iu France. -        '' ,  . ,At   length,  for   those  who   have   been  proved capable of a"certain amount of re-  gohe'ration.   arrives  the day   when' they' ���������  pass   from   "collective"   to   "individual"  rologation.

"You  must  recollect,"  said  the other  quietly, "that I was,engaged to Margaret  Chester.    Her father was as power in the  world of finance.

Oh.   we are  not  so formal as all that at our house."     -  . At   the   Griscom   residence   Carnivert  found a warm welcome.   Griscom's wife  was the kind of a woman who can make  a guest feel that his coming brings pleasure;   that  his  departure causes   regret.  It was a happy little household, neither  monotonously  dull\nor, so  painstakingly  gay as to be weari.ome. , The oculist of  wide and enviable reputation  was made  to understand that he was well liked per-,  sonally and not  merely admired  professionally.    So-he  found   himself often  at  the genial hearthstone of the Griscoms.  Sometimes he sadly  needed  the serenity  of   atmosphere    which    there   prevailed.  For the search which he had come across  the Atlantic to.prosecute was void.of result.     All  bis   following of clews  terminated at a blank wall.    AJ1 his inquiries  brought replies negative and  unsatisfactory.  One   bitter   midwinter   night,'   coming  Into the familiar warmth and comfort of  the Griscom establishment, he was startled by the alarmed impetuosity with  which the wife of his friend accosted  him.        i        ' '  "Dr. Carnivert, you will go at once to  find Harry!

The "horrible" includes the water so.uirt-  /ers,, which are' known by''the name of "all  the jolly fun." These squirters''are also |  brought into requisition .during the election by rude boys and girls to show their  disapproval of certain quiet men who, on  being interrogated, have declared their intention of voting in opposition to the  views of the rude boys and girls. In a  large crowd there are always hundreds  of these squirters, which-are always referred to as "all the jolly fun."  "Oh, missus! All the jolly fun to ye!"  cries a street hooligau at a handsomely  dressed woman in a carnival crowd, and  into her face is squirted the water. This  sort of "fun" is, of course, never resorted to by any but the lower Londoners,  but lower Londoners make up a large  part of a London crowd. It is useless to  protest against it, and so far 'it has appeared useless to agitate the subject in  ' parliament. Many times, so I am told,  staid parliamentarians* have given their  attention to this subject and have brought  up the proposition to abolish "all the  jolly funs" by punishing any persons seen  carrj'ing one, but in spite of agitation  against it "all the jolly fun" remains a  horrible feature and fixture in a London  crowd.  Another of the carnival horrors has  been the "tickler,"1 but it is.an insignificant discomfort compared with "all the  jolly fun." "Ticklers, ticklers���������two a  penny. Who'd be without a tickler when  ticklers are so cheap?" This is the selling cry of the vender of peacock feathers,  otherwise "ticklers." They sell like hot  cakes in the London crowd, nearly every  member of which seems to become possessed of a passion to tickle his or her  neighbor on the ear or in the neck with a  peacock's feather. The buying and -manipulation of the "ticker" are 'not confined to the lower Londoners. College  boys out foi\a lark and clubmen, having  partly disguised themselves, are especially adeot at w^i'ling the peacock  feather.       -,  Serving Ont a Wife,Beater.

No  petition, as he pointed*out, had been presented to parliament the previous year.  "I   am   convinced,"   said   he,   "that' the  Catholic cause has suffered by neglect of  discussion.    Had  the  petition   been  last  year-the subject of debate we should not  how see the beggarly corporation of Dublin anticipating our efforts by a petition  of  an  opposite tendency."   The speech  was reported'in the newspapers the next  day, and'4J. N. D'Esterre, a member of  the corporation, sent O'Connell ,a letter  demanding ,retraction.   The latter refus-,  ed to either admit or disclaim the express-ion    respecting    the    corporation,    and  D'Esterre   then   widely   proclaimed   that  he was going to horsewhip O'Connell publicly.   Clansmen of both parties gathered,  ready for a general row, but D'Esterre  did not attempt to 'make his threat good.  However,' he challenged O'Connell  to a-  duel.,and on Feb. 1 D'Esterre and O'Con-  nell,,stood face to face"1 in' mortal combat  iu a field in the county of Kildare.  (   O'Connell for a portion of the time thc  seconds were arranging ^matters walked  'up andtdown at the end of the field near  the road, wall closely wrapped id his great  cloak, apparently engaged in prayer. Aft-  er'awliile.he joined <his friends, and, recognizing in the throng Jerry MacCarthy,  a "well known Dublin tailor, lie exclaimed,  in his wonted exuberance of spirits, "Ah,  Jerry,"11- never missed  you from  an.ag-.  gregate meeting." " Seeing Charles Phillips.'a  well   known   Irish -barrister - and  a arbor of   "Curraiiand   His Contemporaries," in the crowd, he'called him aside  and said: "Phillips, this seems to me not  a personal  but a  political affair.    I am  obnoxious, to, a-party, and they, adopt a  false pret'ense'to cut'me off. < They have  reckoned   without  their  host,   I   promise  you.'   I am one of thV best shots in Ireland, at ,a"marl_, having as a public man  consideredit my duty to prepare for my  own  protection against such unprovoked  aggressions as the present.    Now.'remem-  ber what I say to-you.    I may-be struck;  myself, and then skill is out of the question, but'if I am'not my antagonist will,  have cause to regret having forced me into this conflict."      , ,       , ^    *  '   As O'Connell flung off1 his coat beforo  repairing to his position bis'second carefully,looked him over, and. noticing that'  he wore a white muslin cravat and'that  a large bunch of seals hung'from his fob,  he   had   both   removed,   remarking   that  such conspicuous objects would regulate'  the  aim  of  D'Esterre.    The  latter-displayed  the  same  cool   indifference.    He  was observed twirling his right leg round  a cane resting on  the ground,and chat-  tiug unconcernedly to his fiiends. .When  he appeared in his place, he declared that  whatever might be the* result of this unpleasant  business v between   himself  and  O'Connell it did not originate on his part  from   any   religious   animosity "or   party  feeling.   From the bottom of his heart he  could   say���������and   he .appealed   to   Cod  to  witness the truth of his words���������he har-  boredv'no ill feelings against his Catholic  fellow countryman.  The   combatants   were, placed   facing  each'other ten paces apart, with a pistol  in each  hand, the  directions  being that  when  the  signal   was given  they   might  tire whenever they pleased, advancing or  retiring   before * or   after    fire   as   they  thought   proper.    After   the  signal   both  men stood with weapons down for a few-  seconds,   closely   watching   each   other.  Then  D'Esterre���������maneuvering apparently to confuse O'Connell  and  make him  lire at random���������moved a pace to the left,  took a step forward and raised hi4-" pistol  as if to fire.   But O'Connell,  who stood  still on the alert, anticipated him.   Quick  as lightning he lifted his weapon, aimed  low and fired.   About the same moment  D'Esterre's weapon exploded, the bullet  struck   the   ground   at   O'Connell's  feet,  aud the unfortunate man staggeVed, then  lell heavily forward amid the wild, exulting shouts of the crowd of peasants. Both  the surgeons hastened to him.- Tbe ball  had  traversed the hip and  could  not be  found: but, though D'Esterre was bleeding profusely, no one suspected  that  be  had  received  his death  wound.    In  fact.  Major   MacNamara   shook   Sir   Edward  Stanley  by  the  hand,  warmly  congratulating him that the duel had ended without loss of life.  1 The popular excitement in Dublin when  the result became known was tremendous. Bonfires blazed till midnight in the  streets, which swarmed with crowds  shouting in joy for the safe return of  their favorite. Next day 700-gentlemen  left their cards at-O'Connell's residence.  ���������Meanwhile D'Esterre was slowly' bleeding to death in bis house at Bachelor's  Walk. The.end came on the afternoon of  ���������Friday, the second day after the duel.

The, castle of. Kingsgolierg, which  stands at tbe southern extremity .of  Jutland, took 204 years from the laying  of the foundation stone to tbe rigging  of its master's banner on its" highest  tlagstalf.' Its foundation stone was the  skull of its builder'.: bitterest enemy.  Three mouths after its laying Count  Jborsing, the builder of the castle, was *  killed. His son ,was then iu swaddling  clothes. Tie did not continue his father's work until aged 24.  On his twenty-fifth birthday he was  thro-wu into'prison by the son of the  man whose skull Jay in the earth of  Kingsgoberg's foundation stone. In  this manner master after master of  Kingsgoberg was stopped putting another stone toward tlie completion of  the founder's work till civilization intervened.  Restormel castle, in Cornwall, .took  90 years to build, of which period exactly one-third was occupied in excavating tbe foundations.
