But there is one drug  that 1 can recall which is worth moro  than Its weight in cold. This Is pseudo  pbysostigmine. I don't think that it  has a popular name. ..It Is too rich for  that In the pharmacists' list it is  quoted at $1 a grain, or $437.r>0 an  ounce. The seed from which ihv drug  is made grows In India and Brazil, as  well as in parts of South Africa.' Thia  seed, tradition ..says, was once used by  native chiefs as an ordeal. The ordeal  generally resulted in" the death of the,,  man upon whom it was tried and so it  was considered as a great truth finder.,  The prepared drug is sometimes used  now In prescriptions for the treatment  of heart disease."

This is a!  quaint speaking trumpet with an obscure early, history, dating back to the  times of the ' Knights Templars. In  "shape-it resembles a French horn arid  is more than five l'eet long; having a  bell at .the end of the graduated tube.  It was formerly six feet in length, but  is now telescoped' at the joints, where  the metal has apparently decayed.  Tradition declares it was formerly  .sounded from the" tower ,to summon  aid in case of ueed, as, when blown  at a height, the weird, deep notes the  trumpet produced could' be heard a  great distance away, in bygone days.  It is believed that> this, curious instrument has often been used to 'call together the villagers, thus dispensing  with the usual boll; and to rgive additional power and strength to the choir,  being then probably used by'the chief  singer, as the trumpet intensifies vocal  sound to a marked degree.

' lips tight and  rode on.- on;    When  a

The girl was standing by her horse
>     when I'turned.    A beam of light from
the rising moon forced its way through
the tangle of  boughs and  lit  up  her
' face. * ���>
I recognized it instantly--that calm,
proud face which I knew so well and
had so-little reason to love. As Hooked
at hor then 1 was forced to admit what
my anger had .made me deny many,
times that very morning���that she was
a magnificent woman.
Now that the danger was quite over
I was rather at a loss what to do next,
but the girl relieved me of this embarrassment, i
"I am traveling to Aldgate and have
lost my way." she said. "If you can
, set me on the right road. I shall be
still more indebted to you. granting
that possible," this with a glance at
the two fallen men.
"My horse is on the new road some
fifty-yards from here." I said. "I myself .am traveling to Aldgate and shall
be glad to offer you myescort."
"Which I shall be even more glad to
accept." she said quickly, "and were I
to meet more ruffians I might not tind
another rescuer so ready at my call."
A short distance back the woods
were more open, and after helplug ber
to remount I led her horse to tbe new
road, came upon Edward and swung
into "the saddle.
For some time we rode on in silence.
1 coulci feel her eyes, however, and 1
knew she was reading me as only wo
men can read men. but 1 possessed one
httle secret which I -'mentally defied
[   her to guess.
"It is very fortunate for me that
commerce should call you to Aldgate
on this particular night." she said at
last, and she could have said nothing
which I would have found; more exasperating, for it showed clearly that
she had decided j was;a clerk.
"I  have no business in Aldgate,"  1
said tartly.'.-."Aldgate is a seaport, and
I am headed for the low countries."
."The.wars?" she,questioned quickly.
"The  wars,"   FHirepeated,   with   my
bead high.
She answered this with a low laugh
and question that made my cheeks
"What has made you suddenly desire to turn so'.dier?"
The girl seemed to read my past life
like an open book, but one fact she bad
not read, nor did I intend she should.
Still there was no reason why 1 might
not tell her part of tbe truth.
"My father." I said, "has rather a
quick temper.    People say that 1 have
Inherited somewhat of it We disagreed
on a small matter."    " ,
"Your speech is brief and to the
point," said my, companion. "And now.
principally I believe because you have
not asked me, I will tell you why I am
riding alone to Aldgate. 'My father has
rathor.Ni quick temper. People say,
that I have, inherited somewhat of it.
We disagreed on a small matter."
And then in a (lash I saw it all. why
slie was on the road.  Truly-there never ,
was such a  trick of fate as that we
should meet on this night.    '   ,
"It seems that a lew mad words have
cost us both' our homes,"- I said.''  ,' '
My quarrel  "\%.s  more tuau< a tew
.nad words!" she cried angrily. ��� "lie
would'have married me to .a churl���a
clerk, a scribbler!".
I,bit m.y/lip at that and said nothing.,
I knew well enough to, whom he would
have married' her. , -
' "A clerk,'" she, continued,,, "with, no'
more  spirit than a  leveret,  one  who
loves a book better than a sword.   'Tis
said he does needlework like tlie maids
of the^. house, and  I. can  well  believe

The moon had come out bright and

"Mistress Bayard. I am Henry Sheldon."
She half rose in ber stirrups, and the
color rushed into her face, but hor eyes
did not fall before mine. W7e were long
so, looking into-'cach other's eyes.
"So you,did not wish to marry me?"
she said finally.
"At least the disinclination was mutual."

"Yes," I said; "I have seen you. I

Women and Worry,       ,-._���
Granting that a woman's nerves are-   "x
more apt to become detraquc, tomorrow a French word, than a man's are,,
a fact which we have no wish to try to-
account for, we are not at all sure that
it is because she is more subject to the-
srnaller worries of .life than a man is or
indeed that she is really more subject
to them. It is true that the cares of the,
household,  productive as they are of
much grievance "and trouble, fall chiefly upon a woman's shoulders; but. oq-
the other hand, a man's ordinary business or profession is quite as full of
small  annoyances /and worries which
are every whit as irritating as 'those
that beset his wife.
The difference, we should say, between the two sexes lies rather in the
manner in which they meet their troubles than in the apportionment of those
troubles. We would not readily dispute
the theory that it is the steady and persistent pressure of these small worries
which works a 'change in the nervous
system more surely than any great and
sudden trouble, just as the drop of water hollows tbe stone, but we are inclined to believe that the reason in this
case why one stone is hollowed sooner
than tho other is to be found in the
greateiy softness of the stone and not in
the greater frequency of the drop.�����-

A.i  wuen'l got up 1 *aw tbe sleigh swing-  Joel Herrick 'drove along disconsolately in the moonlight, flicking his  whip about 'Bay Charley's ears. Behind the yarn uiuiller his face wore an  expression of disappointment and  wounded pride, and it was evident that,  the five miles of tine sleighing before  him on this keen, beautiful night held  no charms. Disconsolate ho looked and  disconsolate he felt, for had he not just  been scorned by the lady of his heart?  Little had he thought when he drove  Susannah refers out to Johnson's gold-  ' en wedding that she would desert him.  and for his bitterest rival, Ed Sparks,  and yet��������� o ��������� . ,  Joel had danced often with the, pretty, golden haired Susannah. She, happily conscious of her new blue ribbons  - and pink 'cheeks, 'had beamed upon  him, dancing his heart quite out of  him and himself into the brave resolve  to speak of his love on the' homeward  'drive, for, although Joel had "'kept  company" with Susannah for six-  months,  .he   had' always   lacked .tho  . courage to "ask her" point blank.  ,     Now, Ed Sparks, on the other hand,  ' lacked not the courage, but rather had  pressed his suit,\even,when Susannah  had clearly-snubbed him. Perhaps it  was done.only to nettle the hesitating  Joel; perhaps Susannah was really  impressed by Ed's brand new suit'of  store clothes, scarlet tie and glittering'  cutf buttons and studs. 'At any rale,  when the dancing was done and lhe  big "dining room  was thrown open   it  ' was Ed Sparks who stepped quickly  forward and "handed" Susannah to  the delectable  feast,  and  i't  was  Ed  ' Sparks who filled her glass with Aunt  Marcy Johnson's best blackberry wino  when-the health1 of boat and  hostess(  was  drunk. ' And ' all  the  while  Joel  'Herrick, his heart eaten out with jeal-'  ousy, tried to look gay as he served an- '  other and,Mess favored damsel.  - After   supper- goodbys   "were   said,  - the stone.bottles were filled with hot  water  in  anticipation ,of   long   rides  - through   the   cold   night,   the   women  "bundled-each other up  in tippet'and  shawl,  while  the  men ' harnessed  the  horses.    To be sure,-'Joel had but one-  - horse to harness, yet the crafty Ed  managed to reach the house doer first  with his" prancing young horses and a  ���������il "ame to a sudden and mi-  dio   girled   at   the  second verse   when a commotion was ; ee^.������e**ee**O0**������C ������__**������������  ���������hM.a .t UK- ���������,���������,��������������� ot t_ WL "Tb-   S  _  ^_    yjjgjg. |  t ���������_aOCKSMffiiSi  a hot ahd eager fireman forced his way  through' tbe audience up to the foot-  lights and bawled out at the top ot his   J  voice:  ������������������"Bill, you've got to come out of them ���������  ���������er* boots if you value your life.

Susannah gave one  swift glance from Ed's dashing turnout to staid Bay Charley and the old  fashioned cutter. Vaguely she heard  a ' chorus of feminine ��������� "oh's" and  "ah's," and Joel's fate was sealed. She  sprang into Ed's sleigh, tlie envy of  every other girl on the great porch.  All this furnished anything but  pleasant thoughts for Joel as he drove  home alone, and when he realized that  at this moment Ed's arm might be  encircling the slender, waist of Susannah he fairly groaned in spirit. Perhaps the bold fellow might even dare  to kiss her. Joel grasped his whip  tightly, and Bay Charley sprang forward in-surprise.  Two miles had been covered, and he  reached a point where the road wound  through   a   patch   of   woodland.     The  trees "stood gaunt,  strange and black  against the dazzling snow.    Now and  then a branch snapped with the cold,  sounding like the report of a pistol en  the still  moonlight.    Joel  commenced  to whistle from sheer lonelincs.s.  Then  suddenly  the sound  died  oh  his lips,  in astonishment he saw a woman walking  toward   him.   'Nearer and   nearer  they came together.    Mere and  more  familiar became the outlines  oi that  feminine figure.    As he slowed up  shrank back against a tree.  "Why. Susannah!"  "Oh, Joel. I'm so glad it's you'"        v  There were tears in her voice.    "But  Joel    remembered    the    slights,    the  humiliation recently put upon .him. and  hardened his,heart and his voice.    -  ������������������Well. Miss Peter?, if you are goin'  'home alone I shall be pleased to take  von under my care."  His' tone was not Inviting, but tho  shivering Susannah quickly.climbed to  his side. Joel touched up Bay Charley,  .'hut for some time remained silent.  Now and then he glanced at the little  i.irure''crouched at his side, .shirking  with sobs and cold together.- Joel's  heart reproached him, and he finally  remarked:'  '."Seems to me you ain't actin' right  tonight. First you take up with a no  account sort of fellow like Ed Sparks;  then you go walkin' alone at this time,  of ni-ht. '.Where's Ed. an* what does  he mean, leavin' .vou all alone like this?  if he ain't treated you right, I'll take  him out an' horsewhip him."  Susannah laid her hand appealingly  on Joel's arm.  "I'vo been mean to you. Joel, but���������  hut this ain't   Ed's   fault.      I���������I���������foil  out!"  loel snorted incredulously.  ������yo<s I did, too. Joel.

By this time Joel was chuckling o\er  his rival's predicament, and Susannah  silt up in sudden dismay.  ,������But you  won't tell  anybody.  *   1  you. Joel?

Besides, the* joke  ain't on you.   Us, on  Ed "  But just'at this time Ed was having  fresh troubles of his own. Careening,  swaving, he drew near Hufflesburg at  .a racing gait, utterly unconscious that  Susannah was no longer flinging to  the seat -before, which ,he still stood,  tugging at the reins. Occasionally he  threw an encouraging word over his  shoulder'or told her how brave she  was not to scream and add to then-  danger. The horses ' would soon run  'themselves out,' and the road before  them was clear. r   ������        .- ���������  But. alas, just as he turned into the  town a sudden obstacle appeared in  their track-Farmer, Schneider's big  sleigh, laden wilh the rosy cheeked  Mrs. Schneider and three' equally ,rosy  daughters! At Ed's warning shout  Schneider drew his placid white mare  to'one side, but'the flying team caught  the 'rear of Schneider's sleigh, and a  chorus of feminine' shrieks was wafted .to'the "fleeing Ed. > The drift was  deep, and the'five Schneiders, when  disentangled.: found themselves uninjured, but nevertheless wrathful at  the reckless driver. ' -_ , ' "  In the meantime Ed had reached die  center'.of the"town! and* his-horses, exhausted and steaming, finally responded to-the rein.   With a feeling of intense relief Ed turned to .his companion.   Consternation seized him.   W here  was Susannah?   Caught in the'mael  strom  of  Schneiders?   No,   his  cuttei  had not been injured in the collision  Ho remembered with horror that she  had not spoken since the horses ,urs.  began their mad run.  What if she had  been back there in the woods all tluu  time,    frozen,    perhaps    attacked    by i  tramps?   Ed was too frightened to be !  logical.    With   a  curse  he turned  uiu  fagged horses back into the road and  whipped them on at a mad gait.  Again  he' passed' the Schneider  family,  and  as the farmer once more pulled out of  his way, this time more successfully,  his goodwife murmured:  "I   did   not   think   Marcy  Johnson's  wine was so strong as that."  Half a mile farther he met Joel and  stopped at the hitter's vigorous bail.  "Good evenin'.  Ed." said Joel,   with  a cheerful smile   for   his .discomfited  rival     "Are you goin' to look for Susannah?   She's here, safe in my sleigh,  an' you can,just bet she ain't goin" to  make such a mistake again."  ^ Ed ignored the complacent Joel and,  making his best-bow���������that is. the best  he could make while trying to hold the  two astonished and trembling horses-  said:  "I'm awful sorry I had such an acci-  Pclers:   but   if you   aren't  so  much,   an'   1  x     CopjTight; 1901, by M.SIcC.-Williams     j  "Carola!"

Everybody  wondered at the setting  out of a wedding feast and calling in  wedding guests.    A  simple  marriage,  with only legal witnesses,  seemed.to  fit the case's complications better.    A  I few understood, but wisely held their  I peace.    The  wedding  was   Mrs.   Wilson's triumph.    She would not forego  showing to her world that in th.s her  hardest battle she had prevailed.    But  even  this   wise  few   were   something  amazed at one thing-she had invited  among .the   rest  Jack   Harrison,   the  lawyer lover  whom  two  months  earlier she had forbidden the place.  He would not come, of course,  but  by  3 o'clo   .   everybody   else   was  on  hand, minister and bridegroom included.    Aunt Sarah  was  for setting for- '  ward "the  wedding  ceremony.    There      ,  was not the  least   use  in   waiting an   .  hour,   with   everything   ready.     That'  brought'on a very, pretty quarrel with  Carola.

'  Storming did  no good.    Carola was  recklessly gay.     She  had "grown, very  white,  but  her hands did  not tremble  as she put on her' veil and set a  knot  of   loose   leafed   white -roses .. at   the'  throat of tier wniie frock.    She.did ev-  cry thing for herself, yet.' oddly enough, '  made nV objection -to the presence 'of.   ,  half a  dozen  young-women,  each of  whom thrilled  with unconscious envy  of the" bride.,   She even  laughed out-,  right  when  one' of .'thetiV peeped' into  ,  Hire  hall  and said, hushcJlly'over  her  shoulder, "Oh. my, Johnson has got on,  a full dress suit and does look so liaud-  sonie'."<.,   ��������� i ( "'  "It's bad luck, laughin' in your, wed-    '  din" frock.

It is almost impossible to foi-'  low rules in a case of this sort. What  will succeed in one case is useless in  another, so that a driver must exercise good judgment���������"horse sense"���������in  handling a case. ' ,  , A vevy good treatment*is to watch  lhe animal, closely in places where it  'would be likely to balk, and -with the  first sigh-of stopping the driver should  say "Whoa," then get off and loosen  or, prcteiul to change ithe harness, in  some way; also lake up a foot and tap  tho shoe with a stone. Spend a few  moments leisurely in this* way/and in  nine cases out of ten the animal will  forgot its inclination tO'balk-and will  go on at the first,.bidding.- It is aj'jo  well to give a lump ^of' sugar or a  handful of oats or an apple. This will  always produce' better results than severe measures. _ '  FROM DEATH'S DOOR  AN  OTTAWA     MAN'S     WONDERFULLY NARROW ESCAPE.
