Jn  Iltaly   Lossing   had   recovered, from   h's  ���������fever, but his 'physicians absolutely rc-  'fused to consent to .his journeying any  'distance,   until  hisr strength   had   in   a  fuller  measure    returned.     So  he  consented  himself with  -writing.to  Valley-  field   to   send   Elizabeth   ou   to   him   at  Nice, ji letter whieh Valleyfield entirely  "���������ignored.,    Vallcyncldi felt    instinctively  ��������� that later on,  when  Lossing  had fully  .recovered, he'would institute court pi-n-  ���������ceedings to obtain control of his daughter,  but  as   Elizabeth  was  of  age  and  - was really his (Valleyfield's) ��������� affianced  '.wife, he felt from the evidence he could  rr.roduce   in  court that  no   judgo   v*-������'iild  separate  him   from her.'   And    so    he  plodded on, grief and labor walking with  him hand in hand from day,,to day, and  his star of. hope in the far distant horizon obscured'by the clouds of doubt and  dread.    " ���������  ' But relief came at last, and in a most  unexpected manner.   '  One   day  as  ���������Cllzr'ieth   was    .coming  "down stairs,  she slipped  and  fell,   and  - "before  her keeper, who was  with  her,1  ���������could  do .anything to prevent it,c Eliza'  'beth  had  fallen  to   the' bottom   of  the4  stairs.     It was during the dinner hour,  "and Valleyfield,who was.near by, rushed  to her assistance, with hot words of censure for the keeper,  who had   been  so  careless of her charge.  'Though Elizabeth had fallen partially  "on her head, she clid not appear' to be  much   hurt,   and  upon  an   examination  Valleyfield was mystified to'find that al-  " though" she had fallen on the* righr' ������.id",  of  her  head,  there  was  a  small   bjmp  about as large as a silver dollar-in cir-  'cumfcrence   (its   raised t surface   nt   ns  apex being not higher than a sixteenth  'of an inch), on the left side of her, head.  Later  on  a large lump   formed rcn the  Tight side of her head,' and Valleyheul  "concluded-that'she hod injured'h-M^'-'f  .- in two p*aces: at +he same lime he won-  * dered how it could be that one. of tiube  ������������������ lump*' developed*so much quicker than  the  other..    He   was   further" mystified  when, after a few'days, Ehzabe- h .had  . -entirely recovered from the effete of her  1 tall,   he   noticed  that  the  lump  on  the  -Tight side had undergone not-tLe.slightest change.    A** the davs ra������re and wont  and formed tueniseW-es into mollis, and  this lump  on  the leit .bide  of\her hoa*1  continued  there, changeless.   VaIIevnei������  s.c last made  np his mind   to consult a  surgeon  as  to  its  cause   aud, moann'g  The surgeon who made the ccani'nation.  M'as an. eminent one*,  and   aftot   a   fill  'hour had been spent  in tb'c* oximination  ��������� of Elizabeth's head, he no. are! om 1o  Valleyfield what appeared to b" a smalh  -almost impeiccntihle scar in tho '-���������(���������alp,  about an inch rtom the lump. I-le then  ���������lemoved the scalp here and laid bare  ' the skull in order to better .examine the  sk'ill surface.    Immediately b'neath the  - scar in the scalp he Iound a slight,  almost unobserva.blc_ci.it, in the skull almost as thin as a knile blade, and in  this thin slot    he   .thought he'detect el  -small/ particles of . metal, so firmly  wedged in' the skull howeA'cr that th������v  ^defied' his probe to dislodge them. The  surgeon here debated from fuither effort at examination,'bound up Elizabeth's scalp, and* sat down to think. He  *soon formed his conclusions and communicated them to Val'eyfield.' He said  a splinter of lead irom a gun bullet had  entered the skull from an oblique di-1  rection, and had become changed from  a flat to a round surface from the resist-  ���������nnce the bone "gave it, and instead of  Ticrcing the skull .had remained in th"  'bone, its rounded form bulging the skull  below and above, th������ lower bulge pressing on the brain. Tie then inquiied if  'Valleyfield knew of any fme when such  an afeid^nt might have happened, and  "Valleyfield recounted to him the events  ot th" r'ght a' the Eagle TT:Il mine B ^-  iore the surgeon left he stilted to Valleyfield that ho would consult some other  ��������� eminent specialists in this line, and if  they endorsee] his theory it might be  necessary to perform an operat*_n on  -the skull of the young lady, remove the  metal, and .endeavor to restore tho skuH.  to its original1 shape; --TE this, had been,  done immediately after the" skull had  Vbeen injured, the surgeon- asserted, there  would have'been no-dq.ulitabo'vit the restoration of the young Indy's-'inent-al poyr*.'.  ���������ers. But now, since the brain had sufr.  fered so long from its injury, it might  be that its powers'were ���������permanently im-  - paired. '.'-.' ���������'"'��������� ���������  In spite of these last words a great:  >wave of hope swelled- up in Vaileyneld's.  -heart at'this-new 'development of mat-'  ters, and he eagerly waited for the-sue-,  geon's second coming. He had not many  apparatus for the purpose, arid, at the  same t.me 'have theJ assistance of "the  inoit able,specialists on the continent. -  "When the operation-was performed* it  was found that the theory oC the surgeon who made the diagnosis was not  strictly borne out by the results. It  was found that instead of a leaden  spl'nter, the mi^i'e in the skull was a  piece of flat biass from a dynamite shell  casing, and that instead of it ro'inding  n:.d bulging the skull., it had merely  t-o'ie'd   up   like    h    watch- spring,  only  .closer in the coiling.  Vail -yfeld was a pitiable object to see  days to Avail.though it seemed an'age to  him. The surgeon brought the-intelli-.  ' gence that the .-other surgeons had upheld hi$.conclusions, an(l that-an operation would b'e' performed-on, the young  ���������lady's head if Valleyfield .consented.���������  'Valleyfield gave his    consent   instantly,-.  ��������� and in the arrangement of details that  followed it was* decided to have the op-  ��������� eration performed in Bellevue Hospital,  New York City, in  order that the surgeon might have the   use    of the best  as he waited in an ante-room for the result of the surgeon's work. lie had  eite:i nothing that day, and as he paced  back and forward in nervous dread, his  cheek's sunken and pale, and the marks  of the suffenugS'' of we.iry months upon*  him, he was but a .jiior semblance of his  tormer self, when the pride of his manhood ca^t its blessing over. him. At the  yq*ind of the surgeon's foo'step he  *��������� prang forward, and as the door opened  his eyes were waiting to look at the.  burgeon's face. Then he grasped the  surgeon's hand in speechless "gratitude, -  as his hot tenrs. the fust ho had ever  sh"d since his boyhood, blinded his eyes  and fell on the surgeon's shoulder. The  l;p$ which could be .tight lv drawn in moments of danger, twitched now in deep���������  emotion, at the glad tidings he had instantly perceived  in the surgeon's*face.  "Yea."> the surgeon said, after Valley-  fioM\ emotion had in a measure,6 subsided, "the* operation .has been successful ev>n beyond'what I_ had "expected���������  the young lady's .mind is _completely  clea. again.-as much,so as if she'had.  met with no ace dent to her herd. .Still,  I, th'nk ;. o i had better not see her for a  fe\v"dai i, imwhich time*the wounfl will  lir-ai. .She w.ll gain "mental "strength,*  'and *he" will be,' in a better and safer  co'Mlit'on to moot you.  Very different was 'Valleyfield'ssbearing from that a'-ove discribed ns he left  hi*-* hotel 'ovoral days after the eviration, and proceeded to the Central Park  -���������nhere he was to meet Elizabe'h.no'v restored to mental health, the knowledge  of her love for h m filling ni^ his v hole  heart., He went forAvard to th������ convey;  a nee that was to bear him to her. with  an elastic step, and there was ''ome^pf  the old dignity and gallantry'in his,bearing that had'set so well on him in his  bvgone prosperous vears.

The Buffalo paddock at "Golden Gate
, park/ San; Francisco, was recently, the
scene of a desperate fight 'to the death
; between two of the bull's of tlie herd.
Young <Ben;< who. had for years ruled
the herd, ^was attacked by pne of his'
fellows, and before any of the^attendants could summon courage to interfere the one time bully had been gored
and trampled by his 'more vigorous antagonist until he lay'dead on the 'field
of battle. *'' "\ ,      "    _*> *
* ' 'BenYdeath is the first to occur in the
' buffalo herd In.the/park from "any but
a natural cause. Ten years ago the first
of the herd Avere installed in,a paddock
now close to the' music' stand. *. There
were then two bulls and ono cow. They
were,'well cared for, and In the feAv
years that ,haye passed since their
coming theJ original paddock,became
too small for the comfort of the herd.
A, few months ago^anothcr paddock
was fenced in{near the ocean beach,
pause, when be-lowered'his head, and
made a  charge  at   Ben.    But the old
fear overcame him when srill at a respectable   distance,   and   be   suddenly
side stepped and wheeled and trotted
off a few paces. Here was an open declaration of war, but the bully heeded
it not.   Another feint' was made, and
the'youn^ buffalo brushed past the side
of Ben. /A.few seconds later the,buffalo was,back, and this time he,landed
with all his force full in the ribs of the
drooping bully.  Over Ben Avent, rolling
in the sand.' He floundered a moment'
then'tremblingiy regained his feet.   He
bellowed In bis helplessness, but gamely, lowered his head to meet the buffalo
that   was   coming   charging   at   him
again. _ Their horns met with a crash,
but Ben's'Strength was gone." .He reeled, but' Avjth a mighty effort he recov-'
ered. It was only for an Instant. Slowly he was being pressed backAvard,' bel-
lowingvin his agony. Soon ho-was down
on his knees. Then his haunches sway-
' ed, and in a moment more ""the once
splendid animal AA-as down.       *' <t
�� While the.fight was on* the-other tAvo
young buffaloes stood close by watching
the combat,' their heads loAvered ready
to take,a part if the-tide Avent their/
way or, scamper off if the bully again
asserted (his supremacy. * As  soon'<as
�� went down they joined their comrade against him. < It was revenge ,for
all  their sufferings.   When  they0 had
.been driven off, the body of 7the bully
,was ripped In many place's by the horns
of the animal-*! and torn'by the hoofs of
tho beasts as they trampled In their
rage on the fallen Joe. ��       "'    .

Everybody at the Family Reunion
Joined In the Hunt, and For a
Time There Was Great Excitement
> at the Rankin Home,      <
Miss   Margaret ' Tittemore
'and four young bulls, all of them na-
. tive sons .of tbe park, were placed in it
During the transition, it may be re?
membered. Young Ben 'was the chap
[.."that gored to death the horse of Park
Policeman Thompson as he was being
led from the old paddock to the new
one.     %     .'    ' '
H - 'In the new quarters Ben at once asserted himself as the boss.   He was a
^.magnificent animal, clean limbed, sup-
ple'-and-as active as a kitten.   It could
not be sa'id that be AATas vicious; he was
[merely   playful.,  and   his * playfulness
''-was 'afterward   exhibited   in   butting
;\one.of his unsuspecting companions off
\K his feet or ripping a slit in his hide.
The other young'blades of the pad-
*dock did not seem to relish the humor
of Ben. and 'when they evinced their
displeasure there were open hostilities,
-with the result that the young native
L-sons who shared the paddock with him
Rwere obliged to watch him-almost constantly. "Many a time'they raced up
vand  down  and  around   the inclosure
.with the bully behind them.   Naturally these things engendered bad blood,
and on the principle that the worm will
( turn   there   was   occasional   rebellion

Archibald had been distinctly naughty
all the morning. As Mrs. Rankin, ' his
mother, explained to. Cousin Martha,
i there were- some days when the young
one , just got a^ mean > streak,, and then
there was no doing the first living thing
with him. This, ^apparently, was one of
those days. �� ,
There was a sort of^family reunion at
the Rankin  homestead,  which  made  it
all  the more aggravating.' Pa< and Ma
Conklin Avere there,  and   Uncle  Alonzo
and   his   family   and   Bert  and' Minnie
Beebe, asrwell as Cousin Martha, and the
dinner was-to be according.   When you
have a dinner for 11, to get up and the
'girl you have can't be trusted to boil water without burning it, you may be excused'for becoming somewhat' flustrated.
Mrs.1 Rankin owned herself to be in that
condition." She told Archibald that if he
didn't behave himself and if she heard
another Avord out of hini she would paddle him good. -She said it as-if she meant
it, and Archibald believed it. At this JJn-
cle^'Lonzo felt in his coattail pocket and
produced something like" a wooden trumpet, which hVsaicTwAs a bubble blower.
, "I should have,thought th'at'you wouldc
know better.than to, give him a thing like
'that," said Mrs. Rankin.   "He'lhwant to
blow bubbles noAv, and I just won't have
him in the kitchen under my,.feet."   ,��  -
��� ''Let him blow them in here," suggested Cousin^ Martha. >"��       ^_ ,
^ "And then'have him slopping suds'all
��� over the carped?" >             '           n0        "*>'
"He.won't do that," said Uncle Alonzo.
/'He'll   be'careful.    Won't  you,' Archibald?"           .'-.*'               ^     -
,"No,",answered the boy'.who.had no
notion of committing himself.,    .
The end of it was that he had a bowl
of soapsuds, which he was cautioned under-penalty "of-skinning not'to spill, and
he became so quiet thaf'fbr.the next half
hour he was almost forgotten: , Then,he
.tried to climb on to the .chair on* which
the bowl*had  been   placed  in  order to'
give1 the bubbles a longer descent.    That
overturned' the soapsuds on the carpet.
Nobody was looking at the time, and, being a bright child  for his age,* 3 years,
he concluded that it was a good'time for
disappearing and forthwith disappeared.^*
Presently somebody inquired,' "Where's
Archibald?"     But "tliere was no  iinme-1
dia'te. uneasiness.     Half an. hour ' later,
however, the inquiry was repeated, and
then Cousin Martha began a search. She
went up stairs <and called, and she went
into   the   kitchen s and outdoors 'to  the
barn, but no' Archibald responded to her
-falsetto.    When  she  came back  to the
kitchen,   where  Mrs.   Rankin  was'Concocting.- a  "floating  island,"  she  looked
worried.   J ��� '    ,   '-
"Where  do  you  suppose  that  young
one can have got .to?" she asked of his
"Why, isn't he in the sitting-room?"
"No, and nobody has seen anything of
him,for an hour." , v ,
Mrs. Rankin laid down the fork with
winch she was ^beating eggs and, with
a hasty direction to Hilda to 'look after
things, hurried into the sitting room. The
inverted bowl that had held the soapsuds was on the floor, but no other trace
of the child. Mrs. Rankin, followed by
Cousin Martha, nest Avent to the i back
of the house, where the stone foundation
had fallen down,- and stooping shouted
into the darkness that Archibald had better come out of that, if he knew what
was good for him.
No response.
Uncle Alonzo now came up and was
dispatched to the haymow, and  Rufus,
the long legged, gangling hired man, was
sent to   the chicken  house.     Just  then
Ma Conklin ran' up at a surprising pace
for a woman of her age and informed
them, with a great deal of agitation, that
there was a board off the cistern.
i. "Oh!"   exclaimed    Mrs.   Rankin __ and
pressed her hand to her side.    For one
moment she looked as if she would fall,
and Cousin Martha put her arm around
her.    The next, minute she was running
toward   the   cistern,   screaming   as   she
went.    When she got  there,  she began
frantically  to tear the covering  boards
away, and Rufus and Uncle Alonzo ran'
up   just   in   time   to   prevent   her   from
jumping in.   Rufus ran back to the barn
for a rope, and the rest crowded around
the cistern and peered down.
Rufus now came up with a length of
rope, and the men lowered him down into
the cistern so hurriedly that he splashed
into the water and disappeared.  He rose
gasping and told them to pull on the rope
a  little,  as he could  touch  bottom  and
keep his mouth clear by holding the rope.
They hauled taut and then fastened the
rope to a board laid across the mouth of
the  cistern,   and   the   hired   man   began
working to and fro, feeling with his feet
"I don't think that he's, here,"  came
hollowly from below.
"Thank God!" ejaculated Uncle Alonzo.
"Are   you   sure?"   called   Pa  Conklin
"Wait a minute. I've��� Ah, here he
ls\"    '
The men groaned, and Mrs. Rankin fell
unconscious into Cousin Martha's arms.
At the same moment a window in the
second story of the house was thrown
open, and Hilda, the hired girl, leaned
out and screamed to them.
"He's here!" she cried. "I've found
him. He was in my room, down behind
a trunk, hiding. He said that he had
spilled the suds an liis maw was going to
lick him.  Here he is!"
There was a rush to the house, and in
another moment the cause of the trouble
was being hugged and kissed and shaken
and scolded and blessed as he never Avas
before in the whole course of his existence. He was howling his disapprobation
when his mother revived, and then he
had cause to howl, for in the joy of her
heart she took him across her knee and
spanned nim vigorousiy.,
At last���in the course of an hour, perhaps���quiet and order were restored, and
Mrs. Rankin, between smiles and tears,
with the restored Archibald pressed close,
to her matronly bosom, said she guessed
their dinner was spoiled now sure enough.
"Don't worry about that, my dear,"
said'Ma Conklin; "just think how much
worse it might ha' bin."
"By the way," said Uncle Alonzo,
"what's come of Rufus?" ,' '
They all looked at each other blankly
until Pa Conklin voiced the general
thought. "I guess," he said, starting up,
"thatoRufus is up to bis'chin in the cistern waitin for some of us<to come an pull
him out."���Chicago Record.        ��� t        <��.���>,

more attention to this : pointw among
some of the beef breeds would be highly advantageous���there is-lindeed a dis--
tinct tendency In this direction among
the owners of several of the leading
h(M-ds . of beef cattle. On the other
hand, the dairy form' ,'can very easily
be carried to an extreme.'and result in
a narrowness of chest that fails to afford room" for the healthy play of. tli����
lungs.   This defect, top. is being stoad--
ily remedied.    Thus there js a permanent check rto.carrying tin1 cbltivaiioa-
of good( properties to an extreme.' The"
ordinary farmer will be guided by his .
owu requirements in.the variety which
her selects, and-also In the type of that
.variety, or he tuny find it .preferable'to
have a cross bred combining ihe merits -
of several breeds iu ordor to meet his
own special needs? **.','      *    *
The requirements of trade <-ause "con-*
suint changes lb'at' aro very rapidly'"
met by ,farmers"and breeders. One of
the most important of these U: recent
years ,has" resnlttMl from the inereast'd
demand for new milk. "As the result of
the decHm* in the value of wheat,
which has�� led to a great curtailment
of the area under that crop.1 thousands*
ot farmers were compelled to aiM
about for a uew source of revenue, ami
many found it in supplying the'large
towns with fresh ini'lk. and'in this they
were facilitated by the extension of tlu'
railway system, which permitted the
carriage of milk from long, distances.
That the demand for milk has vastly
increased1 in towns admits, we think,
of no reasonable doubt, though exact
statistics are difficult to obtain' The
change resulted iu many cow sheds
in towns beiug closed, and the farmers who took up this branch of trade,
in which the home, producer up to the
present has a practical monopoly, necessarily changed the character of their
herds by'developing the milking properties of the cows. This has been
done, and so the most widely cultivated variety" today is the general or
dual purpose animal of Shorthorn type,
and no better description could be
found. Still, it would be well if some
improvement were made without departing far from the general type. No
doubt the sale of milk is the main
consideration, and the cow pays her
way from this source, with the added
value of her carcass. But if a bull of
better class and breeding were used
the herd would gradually be improved.
The' cows would bring a better price
when fed off, and the calves would be
more valuable. A large number of
them would be reared, and in this way
there would be effected a much needed
Improvement in the general store slock
of the country. All this could be secured without any deterioration of the
milking properties.
Of course; the same type of cow produces much of the butter that is used
in the country, and it is a mistake, to
think that because a large* quantity of
butter is imported for populous centers there is hot also a considerable
amount;made at home. ? An extension
of butter production in this .country is
perhaps unlikely unless the factory or
creamery system could be extended,
and this seems to. be more adapted to,
the treatment"'of exportable surpluses
collected from innumerable small holdings than to tbe circumstances of England, where farms are generally of
greater extent, and Internal markets
can be reached close at hand. Still it
would be an advantage if the system
could be extended in suitable districts.
The advocates of the Jersey and Guernsey breeds prove conclusively that
these give the best results where high
class butter of borne manufacture can
be; vended at a paying price, and this
private trade could probably be further developed. Even where tbe butter breeds are not wholly adopted many
owners of milking herds find it an advantage it have a few of them to enrich t .'.*����� ?.""l/

Sickles, crowned  ���������with honors won in his country's service in the arena of statesmanship' and  haloed with the memory of brave deeda  done on the field of battle, for General Sickles has won renown vouchsafed to few men both as a statesman and a soldier. Yet the .story of  his life is one of tragedy, of romance,  of. woman's faithfulness, of friendship's treachery and man's revenge.  It is a story seldom equaled outside the  realms of fiction..  General Daniel Edgar Sickles, was  born in New York city Oct. 20, 1S23.  He was educated in tbe University of  the City of New York and admitted to  the bar in' lS-fe.  , He was elected state senator In 1855  and congressman in 1S56 and again in1  1   ~* v  1    SHOOTING OF KEY.  , 1S58.   He^raised the Excelsior brigade  of' Volunteers' and was commissioned  colonel  at tbe outbreak-of  the civil  . war.   He served with distinction, was  frequently promoted for bravery and.  " lost a leg at Gettysburg.    He entered  the regular army as colonel in  1SGG  and was retired with the full rank of~  '  major general in  1SG9.    He was appointed United States minister to Spain  L by President Grant.   He resigned and  resumed his residence in New York in  1S73.   In 1S00 he was appointed sheriff  of New York by Governor David B.  ��������� Hill, and in 1S92 he was again elected  to congress.    Since the expiration  of  that term he has retired from public  office.  It was on Sunday, Feb. 27, ISotf that  Daniel E. Sickles shot Philip Barton  Key dead in a Washington street.  In 1853 Sickles married Miss Teresa  Bagioli, daughter of an Italian musician living in New York. She was 17  years old, beautiful, with the grace and  lire of the Latin race in her figure and  in her nature.  When Buchanan was appointed minister to England, he took with him as  secretary of legation Sickles. He took  his bride with him. and she was the admiration of tbe English, Russian and  French courts. Her residence in London was an uninterrupted social triumph. She received most flattering attentions from Lady Palmerston. Lady  Clarendon and other persons not only  aristocratic, but famous.  When Mr. Sickles returned to America, he was elected member of congress.  He went to live in Washington. His  bouse was in Lafayette square, then  tbe center of fashion. His hospitality  was generous. His wife added charm  to it.  In Washington the betrayer entered  tbe Sickles home. His name was Philip Barton Key, a name famous and  . honored in the land, for this one's father, Francis Scott Key, composed  "The Star Spangled Banner."   ���������  Philip Barton Key was district attorney for the District of Columbia. He  was a brilliant ornament of Washington society. Physically he was tall,  well made and handsome. In old fashioned parlance they called him "a great  ladles'.man." It is a'mild expression.  He boasted that no woman could resist  him.  He was much older than Sickles���������almost old enough to be Mrs. Sickles'  father. That fact caused him no  shame.'  ,Tbe sinners were audaciously Indiscreet. Their meetings became the talk  of Washington. On Feb. 24 Mr. Sickles had a diruaer party at his borne,  after which he and his guests went to  a dance at Willsrd's hotel. As he was  going out he received a letter which  he thrust unopened into his pocket.  On his return home he read the letter.    It was anonymous and revealed  to him the relations between bis wife  and Key. It specified their meeting  place.  Tbe husband sent an intimate friend  to watch (the' house. He returned to  confirm the allegations. Mr. Sickles  accused his wife, and she at once con-  ��������� fe'ssed everything. She made a long  written statement in which she confessed -without reserve all that had  happened between herself and Key.' <  This confession Mr. Sickles laid before his friend. Mr. Butterworth. and  asked his advice. As they were,talking another friend rushed into the room  and announced that Key was at the  moment making signals with a bana-  kerchief toward the bouse.  The advice of Mr. Butterworth was:  *Tf you are sure that this is common  knowledge, there is but one course left ,  for you.   You need no adyice."  According to the subsequent ^testimony of Butterworth, he then left the  house. ' On the street he met Key,  whom he greeted. He turned to leave,  him and saw Mr. Sickles coming from  his house. Mr. Butterworth then heard  Mr. Sickles exclaim in aloud voice: '  "Key, you,scoundrel, you ha^e dishonored my home!   You must die!"'  Key attempted to hold sickles, who  freed himself and drew a pistol.    As  Kej' was backing away Sickles shot at  him.    Atogether he fired three times)'  wounding  Key   twice.'    The  wounds  were mortal.  Mrs. Sickles regarded her busband'i  action as- the only one lie could take. ,  In fetters' to  him  she expressed  the  deepest admiration for him and contri-  tion'for her sin. He treated her gently,,  but took away her wedding ring^and  wedding presents.    In-response 'to a  heartrendingj appeal  he returned  the  wedding ring, but it was broken.  ,   In jail Mr. Sickles received'the visits  of members of tho-cabinet and eminent  personages.   President Buchanan sent  a message of condolence. <  The 'trial excited worldwide interest.  More than 100 talesmen, were rejected  because .they declared they would acquit Sickles. _ Mr. Stanton made the  chief speech for the defense. He bold-  .ly claimed that it was'absolutely'necessary for the security of 'the home that  ���������a-husband should destroy a man who  sor wantonly invaded it as Key had  done_ in this case. Mr. 'Sickles wept,  copiously during the trial and betrayed  Intense mental suffering. '���������   '   '  The verdict was'"not-guilty."  It was  received with thunderous'and uncon-'-  trollable applause.  ' Then a thing happened which astonished the public even more than, the  slaying. Mr. Sickles took back the wife  who had caused' him tokill.a'man':  It appeared that he had 'frequently  expressed his intention of forgiving his  wife in case he .should be acquitted.  One great reason for this was his desire to save his1 innocent daughter, from  the consequences of her mother's error  as far as possible.  Mr. Sickles' action raised a storm of  comment, largely disapproving. It offended against the moral code of many  men who had applauded his act of destruction.   In explanation he said:  My reconciliation "with my wife was my onto  act, done without consultation with any relative,  connection, friend or adviser. Whatever blame,  if any. belongs to the step should fall upon me.  I am prepared to defend what I have done before the only tribunal I recognize as having the  slightest claim to jurisdiction over the subject���������  my own conscience and the bar of heaven.  I am not aware of any statute or code of morals  which makes it infamous to forgive a woman, nor  is it usual to make our domestic life a subject of  consultation with friends, no. matter how near  and dear to us, and 1 cannot allow even all the  world combined to dictate to me the repudiation  of my wife when I. think it right to forgive her  and restore her to my confidence and protection.  If I ever failed to comprehend the utterly desolate position of an offending though penitent  woman���������the hopeless future, with its d.irk possibilities of danger, to which she is doomed when  proscribed as an outcast���������I can now si*e plainly-  enough in the almost universal howl of denunciation with which she is followed to my threshold  tlie misery and peril from which I have rescued  the mother of my child.'  And, although it is very sad for me to incur the  blame of friends and the reproaches of many wise  and good people, 1 shall strive to prove to all  who may feel any into* est in me that if I am the  first man who has ventured to say to the world  that an erring wife and *mother may be forgiven  and redeemed in spite of all obstacles in my path  the good results cf this example shall entitle it  to the imitation of the generous and the commendation of tlie just.  There are many who think that an act of duty,  proceeding solely from affections which can only  be comprehended in the heart of a husband and  father, is ro be fatal to my professional, political  and social standing.   If this be so, then so be it.  Lovely, broken hearted and penitent,  Mrs..Sickles survived only a few years  the tragedy which her sin had caused.  She left a daughter to the care of the  husband who had forgiven so much.  General Sickles lived to become one  of the nation's prominent men. He  fought through the war and commanded the Third army corps at Gettysburg,  where he lost a leg.    ,  Today he Is a conspicuous figure hi  New York life���������rick, active in spite of  1 his years; one of the regular first aight-  ers at theaters. But his greatest claim  to human interest is that he made the  rule that a man may slay the invader  of his household.  JOKED WITH A.BEAR.'

Ingolds-,  iby to the discovery of a rich gold mine  in  Arizona.     He   named   the  property  the Rat Hole mine.  Mr. ingoldsby had been spending several months near Mammoth, on the  San Pedro river, in Arizona. His purpose was to enjoy the hunting and  make a collection cf the animals and  minerals of the southwest. He pitched  his tent in the canyon of the San Pedro,  in the Santa Catarina mountains. *  He had no neighbors and was for a  long time unable to account for tbe  disappearance of small articles that  he left lying about his camp. At last  he noticed that when anything was  taken something was left in its place.  This was usually a bit of stone or  wood. Tbe culprit he found to be a  lar^e rodent of the species known as  the trading rat. The habits of tho  animal made an interesting study for  Mr. Ingoldsby. and. he often lay awake  at night to watch for his visitor.  A silver spoon was missing one morning and' in its place was a piece of,  quart* carrying free gold. This still  more excited Mr. IrigoLdsby's curiosity,  ;and. after several attempts; he succeeded in following the animal to its home.  Near by was tbe ledge from which the  gold bearing quartz, had been taken.  Mr. Ingoldsby made an examination  thorough enough to prove that his  discovery was of considerable value.

What does a  man carry a pistol for? To shoot some  other man with.' The miserable thing  is made expressly to kill human beings.   It has no other earthly purpose.

health,and certain release from pain
Mrs.     Evans  says':    ','1; feel    that I
ought to say a good word     for Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills', in the hope that
my  experience may be   of benefit  to
some other sufTerixig woman.   ' I am
now twenty-three" year's of age;    and
since 'iny eleventh year 1 have suffered far more than my share of agony
from    the    ailments    that  afflict  my
sex.      At th&jjag-e 'of 16  the    trouble
had grown so bad that I had to undergo   an   operation  in  the  Montreal
g-eneral   hospital.    This'  did *not- cure
me,   and a' little' "later  I underwent
another .operation.   From  this;I�� rr>
eeived    some  benefit, - but was ���   not
wholly cured/and I continued to suffer' from. pains> in  the abdomen   and
bil'ous 'headaclie:'.'A few years later/
having with'nay;-husband removed to'
Halifax^''I was,'again suffering terribly,/ 'and - was''"taken to the general
hosp'ital,     where '-another*" operation
was  performed. ^Ttiis  gave "me relief"
for* two"'or three,ihonths, and again
the  old, trouble' -came     on/ *and     I
would-suffer for days at'a time, and
nothing  seemed  to..relieve the; pain.
In��� February-?  1899, J -was again obliged ^to  go, to' the-hospital  and-underwent  a  fourth ., operation.      Even
this*'did    no-cr^.help    me,  and as^the
chloroform    administered  dur-'ng  the
operation affected my heart, I would
not permit a  further  operation',  arid
was .taken home still a  great sufler-
er,. . Ih. .1899   I was:-   advised  to  t:y.
Dr. Williams'  Fink Pills,txand decided
to  do/so.    I -have used the pills    for
several months and have 'found [inore
relief from" them than'from the four
operations ', which   I  passed   through,
and I warmly recommend them to all
