AYihen the door had closed behind the  farmer and his heavy step was heard  descending the stairs, another door,  that of the inner room, opened slowly,  and tho head of Miser Scratton was  protruded.  As  he   glanced     at  his    associate  'm  ���������villainy, he uttered  but one  word:  "Admirable!" ���������  CHAPTER III.  TWO SECO>-D-CLASS  1'ASSKXCrKKS.  On the evening of the day that wiit-  ���������������������������nes-sed the scene described in the previous chapter," a woman, wearing a thick  veil, and wrapped in the folds of a  heavy traveling-cloak, descended from a  ���������second-class carriage at the Gatford rail-  vav   station.  Another second-class passenger wis  making his way towards the wicket  where o-ne of the railway officials wis  taking the tickets when himself being  much pii'G-oceupied, he jostled somewhat  ���������violently   against   the   veiled  lady,   who  -.vas hurrying along. _   ,  "I beg your pardon,-'  sh*-* said, softly.  "It's for me to bog yours-"  The person made no answer, but,  giving her ticket, was hurrying on,  when a man, with a basket of game  on 'Ms shoulder, pushed roughly past,  his basket catching her veil as he did so.  No one wasin-ar her but the blockhead who had partially thrust aside ths  veil, and the second-cla-ss pa^f-enge1',  who, a minute before, had apologized  for  his  unintentional   rudeness.  It was .but a' glimpse that he  of the lady's face; but the effect it had  i.poivhim  was most extra-ordinary.  He' started back, and as he looked  after tho rapidly retreating .figure his  whole manner was indicative of the utmost astor-'ishment.. ,  "It can't be! I must cither be drank  or dreaming!"  The  veiled   lady,   who  had  taken  an  ���������opposite   direction,   had   already   disip-  pea red. '  The man walked on briskly for some  fifty yards, then again stopped to smite  his thigh with the broad palm of his  open hand.  "No, I am not drunk,, nor was I  dreaming. And why shouldn't it be  hex? She was disgucscd, and endeavored to avoid observation. This will  be rare news for Daniel Scratton and  has long-tongued wife. 'My lady is very-  ill, and confined, to her room;" that's  tho news Silas brought back from .the  Hall this morning; 'too ill to see niiv  one, even her husband.' She's seen m\  thought, and I've seen her; on her way  back from London."  He had resumed his walk, and knew  that in a few minutes moire he would  arrive at Scraibton's "house: but he  slackened his pace rather than hurried  it.  , "It's not the sort of revenge I should  have chosen," he muttered; "that is, If  "n choice was permitted me. It's the  husband that has injured me. not .the  wife. Yet in what surer way cm I  i.-ti*ike at him thin Through her? He's  often enough threatened to pull my  bouse down about my ears; what if I  turn the tables, and shake his noble  house to its foundation? Within three -  days, unless Scratton stand-? my .friend,  I. leave this place forever. Why,- what  a fool I am to think of rhe feelings of  others! It's an- opportunity that will  nover occur again; and, if 1 must depart"���������he said this with the dark frown  again settling down upon his face- -"1  would fain leave behind'me some me-  *mory bf  Ttichard  Goodeve."       ' -  His pace was ��������� again r quickened, nor  did he slacken it till he had reached the  head-agent's  door.  Evening had not yet deepened into  night, when a dark figure glided along  a narrow footpath which 'lay th 1-1 ugh  the deepest and most secluded part, of  a small wood, known as "Tho Silvery  Wood," whi.:h formed part of the est tie  of Oakwoods.  Ihe fig are was the-figure of a woman  clad in a large cloak, her face completely hidden by a veil. She walked  r; pod J j*.  But her manner was marked by the  iiipearnnce of terror.  Striking into a thickly-planted , shrubbery she moved rapidly onwards. At  the end of this sihaubbery was a small  gardeu, which was crossed swiftly and  silently.^.. Thers are no lights in the  windows on this side of it���������no lights  except in one.  As the mysterious figure looked up  and saw this light, a sigh of relier  rose to her lips.

In such cases most people .resort  to laxative medicines, but these'only  further aggravate ihe trouble. What is  needed i** a tonic; something that -will  build up the system, instead of weakening it as purgative medicines do.  For this purpose there is^ no medicine  equal to Dr. Wil.iams'Piuk Pills. Theys  enrich the blood and strengthen and  stimulate the digestive tra-jt from first  dose to last. In proof of this assertion  the case of Mr. Thomiis A.

Asked why he  gave this advice Mr. Stewart continued:  "Simply because they are the best  medicine for that complaint I,know of.  l?or years I was a "great sufferer from  indigestion, and during that time'I  think I tried a score of medicines. , In  some cases I got temporary relief; but  not a cure. I rairly dreaded meal times,  and the lood tbat 1 ate gave me but  little nourishment. On the recommendation of a friend I began using Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills a little over a  year ago. I soon " experienced relief  and no longer dreaded meal-time, but  as I was determined that the- cure  should be permanent if possible, I continued taking the pills in light doses  for several months. The result is every  vestige of the trouble J eft me and I  have as good an appetite now as any  boarder in the house, and my digestive  organs work like a charm. I may also  add that my general health was greatly improved as a result of using the  pills."     *������������������  "Do you object to my publishing this  in tbe Tribune?" asked the reporter.  "Well, I have no desire for publicity," said Mr. Stewart, but if you  think it will help anyone vvho suffers  as I did, you may publish the facts."

THE  FORCE  OF  HAB1T.  Showing- How Completely One* t&x&tb  May Supplant Asiotlier. i  "Habit is a curious thing," said Mr.  Joggleton, "but the complett-ness* with  which one habit can be supplanted by  another seems 'more curious still.  "I  had  a  chair  that Thad used' for  years and which,  as  I  was^firmlj- convinced, was i by long odds the most comfortable chair ever made. ' After breakfast, .when I read the paper/I used to sit  in that chair, and after dinner at night I  settled  down   into  it,   with   a cigar,, ia"  peace and  happiness and  thought  there  never was a chair that combined so many,  , good points as to height and pitch of seat"  and slope of back and all that.    I had  never seen a chair that suited me so well.  "But one day this chair was tipped  over or something or other happened to  it, I don't know what, but something so  serious that it was put out of commission.  With our usual, conservative slowness we  put off from day to day and from week to  week getting that chair repaired, and. as-  a matter of fact, it was' two or three  ycrirs ' before we had it fixed up and  ,brought into use again. Meanwhile I had  singled out another chair which I came-  commonly to occupy. This didn!t .begin  to be at first so comfortable as the old!  one had been, but gradually its objectionable points disappeared, and .Vm blessed  if it didn't begin to develop good points  that I had, never suspected in it, and I  came at last to look upon' it as a very  comfortable sort of chair indeed. ��������� But at  last the old chair���������the good old chair-  was fixed up again and brought back into  use, and tln/day it appeared I looked forward to settling down in it at night with  all the old tirap comfort.            *> *,  ' .("But'when, with all those pleasant anticipations, I came to "sit in it again 1 did  not find the pleasure that I had expected.

"When, a real Kansas blizzard  starts," said a native of tbe state, "the  snow at first is usually soft and fine  aud comes down * with an ominous  quiet. Then it increases in volume,  and a wild wind hurls it along. It is  blinding and enveloping, and, aside  from being freezang cold, one cannot  but lose his way. The storm sometimes Lasts two or three days. When  one of these blismards comes up. ,the  farmer who wants to get from his  farmhouse to the stable or milkhouse  takes a cord and starts for the stable  .or-, millahouse, as it may be, even if  it is only 50 "yards off. He seldom  makes It the'.first time, and the cord  is to. keep him from getting lost and  wandering in the *snow. Sometimes  the people stand in the door and beat  a tin can for a signal to any one who  may be out in the storm, but this is of  little* use, as the noise of the wind is so  great that it drowns almost every other sound.  "It know of a case of a man who got  lost going from his stable to the house,  so swiftly and blindingly did the storm  whirl down upon him. He stumbled  over the entrance to a cyclone cellar  and crawled in there and dropped the  door after him to keep out the snow.  The snow fell faster aiid faster, aud  buried the door so"deeply that when it  was all ended and he tried to open it  he found it impossible. His family  searched,the country around for him,  and it was not until the snow had melted and gone'and some one happened  to go into the .cyclone cellar that he  was found*there."--rNew York Tribune.  THE GLASS OF FASHION.  All sorts of openwork stockings are  to be seen in all patterns and colors.  Black velvet run into gowns In narrow ribbons is pretty and much used.  Khaki linen gowns have a real value,  for the peculiar snuff brown shade will  not show the effects of wear.  The hats vary from those with rather  stiff rims and high crowns to low flats,  and these latter frequently have, after  the hat is trimmed, a covering of tulle  put over, enveloping tbem like a veil.  "Some effective new waists that are  Just in are of a heavy, coarse linen,  though in delicate shades, and are trimmed with heavy embroidered linen In  colors. It is evidently Russian peasant  work. It is very similar at any rate, is  stylish and will be durable.  There are many of the chiffon and  other thin inn renal roses, and the woman who makes her bonnets at home  will find thorn a boon, for they are  pretty and effective. They come at 50  cents, and sometimes less, and from  that up to $2 or $3 and are almost as  big as cabbages.  Now that handkerchiefs are so much  used for waists a handkerchief in any  form seems to go. A pretty effect is  made with one in a simple wash gown.  The gown has a. wide turn away collar, meeting in points over the bust,  and there is knotted as a finish a simple little embroidered linen handkerchief, and it is very pretty.���������New York  JTinies.

He has worked  hard, but is still a poor, discontented  man. Jim bought an emigrant's ticket to  Colorado, hired as a cattle driver for a  couple of years and with his wages  bought land at 40 cents an acre, built  himself a house and married. His herds  of cattle are numbered by the thousand,  his land has been cut up into town, lots,  and he is ranked as one of the wealthiest  men in the state. <  "I might have done like Jim," his  brother said lately, "if I'd thought in  time. There's as good stuff in me as in  him."    '  "There's as good stuff in that loaf of  bread as in any I ever made," said his  wife, "but nobody can eat it. There's not  enough yeast in_ it." The retort, though  disagreeable, was true. The quick, wide  awake energy which acts as leaven to  character is partly natural, but it can be  inculcated by parents.���������Industrial Enterprise.  ��������� Beecher'a  Fee.  The power of an orator can b.e largely  measured by the degree of confidence  which he inspires, and judged by this  standard Heury Ward Beecher must be  reckoned among the greatest speakers of  modern times. Men who heard him in  the pulpit or talked with him out of it  could not question th*-* sincerity which  showed forth in his face, his manner and  his voice.  Mr. Beecher was on a lecturing tour,  and Major Pond, his ��������� manager, was sitting beside him in the railway car. Suddenly the preacher.-, slapped his hand on  the little, watch pocket of _his trousers  and drew forth a small envelope. For a  moment he looked at it in surprise, then  opened it and smiled. Presently he turned to his companion.  "Major," said he, "1 married a great  railroad magnate a few months ago. and  as I was taking leave of him he handed  me an envelope, which I slipped in my  pocket unopened. That was the last I  thought of it until today. Just now I  opened it, and this is what 1 found."  The major took the envelope. Within  it were five $1,000 bills.���������Youth's Companion. :  Just where the large crowds that suddenly fill the galleries of the senate and  house when a notable speech is being  made come from is a'puzzle.- They spring  up, however, and as strangely disappear  into nothingness.  ' Vest Was Committed.  "I remember - well once wbenr Joe  Blackburn and fl were on the same  committee," said^a/senator. "It was  during a 'Democratic administration,  and there had been a good deal _.of  bother trying - ,'to get the secretary  of agriculture to agree" to a certain  thing, and Blackburn had been sent to  talk'him over to tbe committee's plan.  In fact, the whole cabinet had been  difficult to deal with. When Joe came  back, sever?' of *'us were assembled  in "the committee room, among us-Senator Vest,'who was'sunk dejectedly in  the depths of an armchair. Some one  asked: . , ,' '    *  . " 'Well, Joe, did you succeed?'  "'Succeed?' he echoed. Then he  began to tramp up and down, fuming  and fussing. **" Finally he broke out:  - " 'Of all the obstinate things in, the  shape of" a cabinet officer 1 ever en:  countered, commend me to J. Sterling  Morton! Don't you agree with me.  Vest?'       '  ."Vest roused up slowly and answered: r  " I'm sorry. Joe, but I am committed to Hoke Smith.'  "It was the funniest thing I ever  beard," continued tbe senator, "and  our bill was never even reported."���������  Saturday Evening Post.  What He Wonld Have Said.  In a complicated criminal case an old  land surveyor was subpoenaed to give  bis professional opinion in tbe matter.  As the proceedings were about to begin he ���������"-iked permission to say a few  words, was called to order sternly  'by the judge, who told him to wait .till  he was questioned. The case then proceeded. A host of witnesses were examined, and even the prisoner frequently was called upon to make' a  statement.  After a couple of hours the judge  said  to  the old  surveyor,  we  shall  be  glad   to  hear  have to say on the \vhole*case."  The witpess stood up and replied:  "I only wished to remark awhile ago  that I am quite deaf in my left ear and  rather hard of hearing in the right. I  was merely going to ask if I might be  allowed to sit immediately in front of  the witnesses and the prisoner.

By its gradual and judicious use the frailest  systems are led into convalescence and  strength by the influence which Q'linine exerts on nature's own restoratives. It relieves  the drooping spirits of those with whom a  chronic state of morbid despondency and  lack of interest in life is a disease, and, by  tranquilizing the nerves, disposes to sound  and refreshing sleep���������imparts vigor to the  action of the blood, which, being stimulated,  courses throughout the veins, strengthening  the healthy ammal functions of the system,  thereby making activity a necessary result,  strengthening the frame, and giving life to  the digestive organs, which naturally demand increased substance���������result, improved  appetite.
