One was a blond, good  looking young fellow of a common type,  bin tho other,'was'onp ot those men that.,  people involuntarily turn and look at,   a.  swarthy- face  without a  tinge of  rod  in  the cheeks, dark', dreamy eyes and clear  cut.' regular features.    The pair stopped  ,��������� .'before  a   life  size   female   figure    which  .    bare' for title the words,  "Ad memoi-iain  porpetuam."    Tho picture represented   n  young    woman    in    bridal    dress,   ' with  myrik:  wreath and  veil���������a fresh/ girlish  ,, f;ice of peculiar beauty,  with' rovy deep  blue eyes and chestnut hair, but pale and _  woqfuliy sad. as .if, with a foreboding of  death.'   'The   contrast'   between   the   ex-  ��������� pression  and   the   youlhful    beauty    and  bridal   array   was  a   triumph  of   craftsmanship,  and   the   picture   bade'  fair," to.  miike its creator famous.  '���������The finest thing in the whole show!"  exclaimed the blond young mah'with enthusiasm, stopping back and regarding  the picture with half closed eyes. '"I  don't, want .to flatter you, my dear sir,  but���������bvitol envy you, that's all! It's���������it's  e poem!" i  , "And  yet.  do, you  know,  15 years ago  I couldn't lmvodouo such a thing to save  my life," said the other.    ''In. fact, for a  'long time  I'couldn't  do  anything  worth  hanging, and the queerest thing"-about it  ,   is that   it  was 'this   ve-y  picture���������or.  at  least, this subject���������that kept me a duffer.  It nearly killed  me.  in fact.

It'has  one advantage over most of such' yarns-  it's true."   . '  The young, man nodded assent, the two  eented themselves on a sofa opposite the  - picture, aud thft artist told his talc as fol-  ���������   lows:' ��������� <  "The history of this "picture goes back  to my early childhood.    I am now well'on  ' the  wrong  side  of 50,  but   1   remember  very, well 'how," when  I  wasr'a  boy  and  ���������lived   with  rny  parents in  the little university town ot G.,  I  was haunted by a  ������������������singular   vision   of  the   pale  little   bride  over  there.     She never 'left me.  day  or  night, 'waking or dreaming.    And in one  particular the vision was not like the pic-  ture.    The bride I  saw alwiiys had  her  eyes tightly closed.     I do not  remember  -when I saw,her for the first time.    I only  know  that at G years of age  I   was  already puzzling my brain about her, wondering if I had ever seen her in the flesh,  nnd aware that she robbed me of much of  the joyousness of youth.   Under her ghostly spell I grew up into a melancholy ^and  taciturn man.  "Aud I was afraid to tell my secret to  anybody, even to my good parents, lest I  should be laughed at. When I.was 19. I  went to the art academy in D.  "By  -diligent   application    to   work    I  "���������hoped to got rid of my'incubus, but the  hope was vain.  "dust when 1 -felt an impulse to do  something worth while and seated myself  at my easel with a fixed resolve not to  think of the vision the pale bride would  appear with startling distinctness and  ' Take almost tangible, shape before my  eyes, so that I would throw down brush  and palette in excitement and despair.  And so all my early pictures were pretty  poor stuff, for I was so much upder the  spoil of the uncanny and mysterious vision that T could not concentrate my  thoughts on anything.  "Several times when tho apparition was  especially vivid I tried to fix it upon canvas, hoping to make an end of it in that  way. Vain hope! At cwvy attempt the  face grew paler and paler until it faded  n.way completely���������to reappear as soon as  the attempt was abandoned.  "In this way years passed, and of  course they brought no ipiprovernent in  my condition. On the contrary. I became  constantly more melancholy and-more unfitted for work. .  "At last, when I could no longer paint  oven mediocre pictures. I'went to a physician and laid the case before hini without reserve. Tie attributed nil my troubles lo oversensitive .nerves and told me.  to stop work and go traveling at once.  "I ��������� followed the prescription.' and it  saved me. I tramped'through the wonderful legend haunted Black forest,  sleeping in village inns and barns and  carefully a void itu: the railway.  "But through all this delightful vagabond life the pale bride pursued me and  oppressed my. soul. I was in a very  I���������'��������� ouiy mood indeed when I reached the  ���������'. 10., in Baden, and 1 little ..-���������'.;>.,��������� "Ti.-i ' passed through its  niediii'vai. gates that. I should there find  the solution of ' the mystery. On tho  evening of my arrival I betook myself  to the only decent looking tavern in  search of a glass of wine and a morsel of  e up per.  "I had been sitting perhaps 15 minutes in the low ccilinged and well smoked public room when a man eutered,  leading one of the biggest dogs I ever  saw. Whether the brute was irritated  by my rueful couutenance or thought ho  bad some ether cause of offense 1 cannot  say. but the simple fact is that he broke  away from his master and rushed at me  so savagely that  '. being unusually weak  mid   nervous,   promptly   swooned.  '/Several days elapsed it seems before  1 regained consciousness. J found myself in Led, with a bandaged arm, amid  si i singe but nut un pleasant .surroundings.

Thank Gui!' cried the  kind, little lady joyfully. '  ���������  "During this 'friendly speech I was  rude enough to keep staring at the picture over tbe bed, and now 1 said in  place of other answer:   ���������  '"���������Will you have the goodness to open  tho window curtains':*' 'There was something, a bout that picture thai fascinated  me. 0Whcn-the curtains were opened aud  the da.vli.ylu streamed in, ,1 saw thai my  suspicion was well founded.,', The picture  was nil '"excellent portrait of the pale  bri'dc that had tormented me for so many0  years. There was only one thing about  it that' seemed unfamiliar���������the big, .wide  open blue eyes, for my bride, asvI have  said, always appeared with closed eyes.*  "The longer I looked sit the picture���������a  fairly well/painted one���������the lighter iny  spirits became." The weight that' had s<'>  'long'oppressed me-seemed'lifted by some  magical power. Completely forgetting the  presence of. the little old lady. I impul '  sively folded my bauds and cried, 'Thank  yoo!' It was perhaps the most fervent  prayer I ever offered. I was roused from  my absorption by the' voice of the tittle-  lady asiiing-if my artn*was sii!! painful.  " 'No,'  I said,  for  V was really too excited just then to feed anything so trifling  as  a  mere  physical   pain,  and   then   sin-  told me that the big mastiff had torn ray  'arm   badly  and   that   1   had , lost    much  blood.     For two days I  had been .under  the influence of opiates.    As I was a total  stranger in tbe village I ,had been taken'  to   the,house  of   her  husband,   the   Lu  theran minister.,   I thanked my pleasant  little  hostess'most  heartily and  told  her  who I was. Then my thoughts went back  to the'picture, and in spite of my phys  -Jen!  weakness  I  determined  to  learn  all  about it at once.    The   minister's   wife,  knowiug me to be an artist, was, not sur; '  prised  at'my'interest in the picture, aud  its fair original; but she said':  "'It is quite unlikely that you .have  ever seen h<;r. She was a relative,of my  hushand*. and she died a bride.   *  "'Shortly before, her death,  which she'  well knew would soon occur, she had this  picture painted.    After the death'of her  parents it came into our possession.'  " 'Where did she die?' I asked.  " 'In G.'    She named my early home.  .  " 'In what year?'  "'In 1S4G. She was very beautiful, as  you may judge from the portrait, and she  was buried' in her wedding dress. My  husband, who attended the funeral, told  me he never saw so beautiful a corpse.  She Jay imbedded in flowers like the  snow fairy in the old tale, peacefully  sleeping in the crystal casket and await  ing a resurrection to new life.'  "At these words the scales fell from  my eyes, and the solution of my lifelong  mystery became . suddenly as plain as  day. ��������� In 1S40 I lived in G. arid was o  years old. I felt convinced that 1. too.  had at that time seen, the 'beautiful  corpse.' Probably my nurse, who. like  all people of her class, had no doubt a  liking for such scenes, had gone to' see  the fair youujj bride in her coffin and had  taken me with her. The scene had made  an indelible impression on my childish  and receptive brain without, however,  leaving any clear memory ot place, time  or circumstance. And precisely for  this reason it had become the plague bf  my later life.  "But now when 1 had traced the connection of cause and effect and at the  same time saw the veritable portrait of  the deceased lady the tormenting vision  vanished, never to reappear. Wonderful,  isn't it, that through the bite of a savage dog I was .cured 'of a prepossession  that in all probability would eventually,  have wrecked 'jury reason V . The days of  my convalescence ia the quiet old house  'and in the society of these charming old  people were 'so "delightful that 1 was  loath to leave and deeply regretted the  necessity of parting from my hosts, to  whom I felt in a double sense 1 owed my  life. I took a copy of the picture with  me.  "And. do you know, I regard that moment as the real beginning'of my artistic  career. My work at once acquired new  strength and life. Before I had painted  with my hands. Now 1 began to paint  with my heart and soul.  "The copy lay long forgotten in a portfolio. Fifteen years later,. when the  whole affair had almost passed out of ray  memory���������I had married and had attained some little reputation as a painter in  the meantime���������the thing came into my  hands by accident. 1 thought 1 might  make something out of it, and there you  see the result* It is a good deal better  than 1 hoped."  As the artist finished his story he look  ed up and saw that a group had collected   before   his   work   and   were   viewing  it with undisguised admiration.  "Well, the pale bride has atoned for  haunting you so long," said his young  friend. "Yon will be famous tomorrow."  The last rays of the setting sun nt that  moment stole through the great west  window, fell upon the picture and lent it  a new glory. The sad faced painter raised his dreamy eyes to his transfigured  work, and in his heart was peace.-���������  Translated From the German For  Cleveland Plain Dealer.  i THE WINDOWS OPPOSITE |  3> BY CHAInLLJiS B.

It  -was that'of a man.  The window was ICO feet from m*������.  but by the assistance of the eloct/'io  Iiight I made out the fnee very clearly.  , It came k>to view .gradually, as if the  man sloy.-'v advanced'across the room,  and i* remained at the pnneless sash  fo'- a full minute. It was the face of  an evilLman. It was dark and bearded,  ir>d tbe eyes traveled up and down and  across the street as if looking ^or da.n-  ger. Whoever the man was he wis no  tramn. nor had be a lawful right 'n  that bouse. As lie left the window I  called to the nurse and told her of his  presence, but she laughed and replied:  "A.h. but we are not to concern ourselves about what goes on ox<^v there  rf i* is some prowler who ha* broken  in. the police must *ake care of him."  1 now had something; to occupy my  full'/itt"Ption, aiKl 1 gave up everything to lvafh the windows opposite.

If he were not a  fugitive ir hiding, whv should he be  taking neeps at tbe neighborhood'' *>.  vagabond, having entered to obtain  shelter for the rielit. would keep clear  of the windows. On this second night  the man seemed to be looking intently  '������t'the'-sidewalk running 'n' fro'-tof the  hospital, and by and by i.e.started and  terned away as if be had r<*reived  som������ signal When the nurseCame.

"Vou certainly have a mind'for mysteries." she laughed, "but if you become too interested you'will develop 8  fever- and have a piiUbaek.

I  gave, the  window?  but little attention   in   the  dnytiiu*  nfter  that     Tb������  face'appeared on  the  tb'rrl evening at  the same hour, and  I   fob so sure that  n   confederate  made  signals  from  th"  sidewalk that I took a convalescent into my confidence.    He wo* an old soldier who was being treated for an old  wound and was allowed the run of the  place.    I told him of the face and th*3  confederate, and be was interested at  once     It was arranged fhat he sbo'dd  be in front of the hospital at bal' past  s and  watch  ������or tbe confederate   ������~-''  luck   attended   him.     He   saw   a   well  dressed   but   evil   looking   man   make  signals to tbe man at tlie window.  Th*3  ���������iignals were made with a folded newspaper and would not have been noticed  by any one not on tbe watch for then1.  "Kow, then," said the old soldier <15?  he returned and repoi*ed. "we have a  mystery on hand.    Luck has thrown it  in our way that we may make a few  goldpieces.   Let us work it out togeth  er and share the reward."  '. None of us in the ward had seen a  newspaper for a week. They were not  interdicted, but none est' the patients  .seemed to care for outside hews. Next  morning the soldier, went out and purchased the journals for the previous  ���������live or six days, and as we looked them  over we struck a sensation. A boy 10  years old, the son of ;i rich iron founder, had been kidnaped and spit-iced  away, and it was stated that the whole  police force of Paris' was on the qui  vive. The kidnaping liad taken place  three days before I saw the face -if  the window. a*.id 1 was' arguing that  our mystery could have nothing tuf.do  vvitb it when the soldier said:  "It is at least 12 iiiUi's from' here  where the lad was picked up, lie was  probably bidden somewhere else for a  dav or two. but 'be scent .vot so hot  that he was' moved. Don't you I'e.ar  that be is not in the old house opposite  at this vary moment."  "Then we should inform the police."  "Pooh! We must wait L'or'a reward  to/be announced. Never slap luck iu  th^face."-    .  On't)'c fourth night and fifth night  the face 'appeared fit Ihe w'ndow at  the usual hour.- '-and , the snipe man  made flic, usual signal's. .As the police  were yet at fa^U, those signals'.must  have meant,that things were til! right  for the kidnapers. It was now eight  days sin''0 the''boy was taken. ain\ as  no truce could be had of him it was believed that, he had been "killed or taken  out of the country.

"Perhaps the most curious feature  of all Siberian cities and villages is tbe  quiet of them," says Anna N. Benjamin  . iu Ainslee's. "The American finds, it  depressing. The.'.places'seem half dead,  yet they are alive and thriving. Our  conception of prosperity in new cities  Is so associated with the clang of the  trolley, the smoke of the factory, the  weird writbings of the steam siren and  the bustle of the population that it is  hard for us to realize that prosperity  may exist in a place of dead calm.  "Vladivostok, Khabarovsk. Blagovest-  chensk and Irkutsk all present the  same features. Blagovestchensk, in the  heart of eastern Siberia, on the junction of the Zeya river with the Amur,  is perhaps the most interesting city.

It has often been remarked that  while nothing is,so uncertain as the duration of any given human life nothing  is more certain than the aggregate of  years which may be assigned to a  group of 100 persons or more at any  particular age. Tbe expectation of life  at a given age, fo use the actuarial  phrase, differs considerably, as might  be expected, in different countries, and  Englishmen may be surprised to learn  that they are ,uot the longest living  'among the white races.  At the age of 20 an Englishman <in  average health may _ expect to, live 42  ��������� years, and any life oflice will grant him  a policy based on that probability. The  " American's expectation is for a slightly  longer period. On the other hand, a  German lad of 'JO can count upon little  more than Hi) years and a'hail'.  It would' seem, therefore, that the  restlessness attributed to the American  temperament does not necessarily conduce to the shortening of life nor tlu-  compos'ure of the German to its pro-  * longation. Possibly the better feeding  and clothing of Americans in the lower  classes of the population are the princi-,  pal 'causes of their' greater longevity.  Their,-position is. at any rate, maintained in later as well as in earlier  years.  The American who has, reached GO  may look to complete 14 years more/  while the Britisher's expectation is only about 13 years and 10 months and  the German's as nearly as possible 12  months less. Both at *20 and Tit GO the  Frenchman's prospect is a little better  'than the German's and a little worse  than tbe Englishman's.���������London Globe.  Out of the Ordinary.

VANITY'S VISIONS;'  1  Flovre*  Bedroom  Th nt   Is a  Tonlo  to K-ver;j  One WHWu 1+.r W*l.\'i.  A beautiful cowslip bedroom, which  looks out upon the.northern hills, has  the .effect' of being Hooded with sunshine; though, as a matter of fact, the  sun peeps in for only the briefest early  morning greeting. The walls aie papered, with cream colored cartridge  ")aper, and there is a deep frieze where  cowslip blossoms run riot. In a picas- '  \nt corner near a window is a broad,  ���������ow divan, covered with cowslip patterned cretonne, and a , high back  Quaker rocker is softly, padded , and  covered with the same, as also one  -asy chair. There are several light  tune seat chairs, which have been  painted with white enamel, and these  have fancy cushions tied into the seats  and across the upper part of the backs  with yellow ribbons.. The cushions.-of ���������  one chair are of. white'duck, embroidered boldly with conventionalized cowslips;, for another they are of white  india silk flowered with cowslips.  The toilet table drapery is of simple  cotton   crape   cloth   of   oow.slip   color-  instead   of   silk. ��������� ,Tho   flounce   of   the  toilet   table   is   like   the   curtains,   of  white    mull    with    largo    polka   dots  sparsely scattered over It. ana yellow-  silk   dots   have   been    worked    in   the -  center of tlie' polka dots.    This has a  very  brightening effect and  was  very ���������  little work.    The,, curtains arc iii'ished  with ruflles. and tied with'yellow'rib  bons. ��������� a  On tho divan are several large nil  lows., one covered with cretonne. One.  a large round thing, is of heavy I willed  white cotton, embroidered with cow  slips, scalloped on the edge' aud laced  together over a pud' of yellow India  ������ilk.   Others have fancy silk covers.  The bedstead is a very simple one-of  iron, finished In white enamel, but it is  mado very decorative by a simple drapery at the head of cretonne curtains,  which are hung in an ingenious fash-  , icn An old umbrella frame was covered on the outside -with cretonne and  inside with yellow crape cloth. The  handle was. of course, cut off. and the  ferrule end was painted white. A brass  ' ring was screwed into it. and it was  hung from a brass book in the ceiling.  A ruffle of the cretonne surrounds the  umbrella, and underneath it. for three-  quarters of the circumference, brass  rings are sewed. The curtains hook into these.  We give too little thought to the question of environment aud color influence. The latter Is upon some natures  as strong as that of music and as powerful for good or ill. and we should give  careful consideration to the surroundings which may "make or mar" those  nearest and dearest to us.  Experience has proved, concludes The  Art Interchange, that this room has a  truly tonic effect upon its occupants.  Its cheerful Influence is. felt by all. and  everybody Is. happy within its walls.  Even a querulous, discouraged and melancholy invalid yielded to the beneficent and-subtle sway of its radiant colors and forgot her ailments.  Increased Use of the Dinner Oont.  The increased use and abuse of the  dinner coat, or Tuxedo, us It Is generally  called, are very noticeable in New York  this season, according to an authority  on men's fashions. Several nights ago  In one of the most fashionable hotels  in New York at least three men out of  five wore dinner coats, not in the cafe,  but in the ladies' dining room and In  the halls with parties of ladies. When  this coat was introduced some years  ago, lt was not intended as a full dress  garment. It was a compromise. The  Tuxedo might be worn appropriately  for all stag affairs and at informal dinners. On these occasions it should be  worn with a black waistcoat and a  black tie. A derby hat is the proper  headdress with a Tuxedo. The custom of making the Tuxedo more of a  dress coat has been growing. At least  half of the men noticed the other night  wore white tics and white waistcoats  with their short coats and not a few  of them wore opera hats.

The popularity of the plain short  coat in the midst of so much that is  ornate and heavily garnished Is in  part accounted for by the fact that it  accommodates the fur collarettes and  boas nicely, and these are quickly  thrown off when one enters a warm  room and the jacket is thrown open,  whereas the removal and redonnlng of  1 EBUTAJJTK'S BALL GOWN.  .a largo fur trimmed wrap -are affairs  of which one thinks twice.

Sho read a i'w lines of the letter  attentively, then her eyes hurriedly  scanned the rest.  A stified shriek! The letter fluttered  from her hand to the ground, and Mrs.  Scratton fell back in her chair, .for  ���������once, in a fainting fit that Avas not  shamming. Hor bosom friends and  chosen gossips rushed at once to the  ���������res-cue, the-one-to the i*oor aaid tine other  to the bell-rope. They did this, of  course? Of course, they did nothing of  the kind-  The momtnt Avas critical, but Mrs.  I'odmore, and Mrs. Podmore alone,  proved equal to the occasion.  "Put up that bottle!" she said, in a  ������������������tone of quick authority, as the softhearted Doldrum was approaching Mrs.  Sera trail's chair, with a pint bottle  labeled "Drops." which she had drawn  from her capacious pocket, which seemed to contain everything from a jujube  to a blister.     "Put up that bottle!"  g������ tm Contlnuod.  in great emergencies, it as the strongest mind that eonies to the front. Mrs.  Doldrum at once succumbed; and, as  fearing another' advent on the part of  the eccentric Biff en, in a Ioav, but distinct voice, Mrs. Podmore^ read the  letter she had promptly lifted from the  c.:rpet  upon  which   it  had  fallen.  'Ancient   and   Honorable!  ,  "You'll be awfully surprised when  you icad this letter, and I've no doubt  Biil'en aad the res': of them Avill catch  it hot and' .strong for the* ncx: twenty-  f,.ur hours: bin when you've Jet'oil' the  necessary steam, you'll come right, I'm  sure, and stand my friend Avith the  jruv'Iior.

(It was  ,at this stage of tbe letter that poor  Mrs. Scratton fainted.) "You always  taught' me to look high, and I couldn't  look much higher than, a sign-board.

Was it soitoav that expanded the  visage of the.- acute  Mrs.   Podmore?  Was it sympathy that contracted still  more tho pinched A'isage of Mrs Doldrum?  It is with deep regret we feel ourselves compelled to answer both these  questions in the ngatiA'e.'  The expansion Avas a smile- The contraction was an internal enjoyment  "Why, he's married tbe tavern-kcep-  er's daughter!" cried the doctor's Avife.  "There's an end of all chances for  my Hermoine," _ thought the lawyer's  lady; for since the famous Oakwoods rejection, she had secretly nourished the  idea of an aiiiance betAveen ber oAvn  daughter and the hope of the Scrat-  tons.  Such were her thoughts; her words  were A'ery different..  "Poor, dear .Soraphina!"���������for Mrs.  Scratton's eye were now opening. "My  dear, dear, friend! what a shock for  you! what a disgrace! Married to a.common barmaid!���������a disgrace which nothing can redeem! My heart bleeds" for  j'Gu! Such a dreadful IiIoav!" -v  Mrs- Scratton, for the moment quite  subdued, looked from one to the other  of her friends for pity, but found none.  "You're not goingV she asked faintly,  for both ladies were eagerly adjusting  their bonnet and sbaAvl.  "Yes, really, dear. we must s'O.

"Tis now pas: tAvo. and I  should have taken my pills i\nd mixture at twelve. There's nothing like  regularity in such matters," she continued-  Of course the great incentive for this  sudden   exodus   Avas     a   desire     to   im  mediately   propagate     the     scandal     of  which, they   ha'd  just    possessed   themselves.  Mrs- Scmttoii knew this well enough,  but too crushed to do more than mildly  protest, she saw her "dearest friends"  hurry away like carrier-pigeons, to flutter all over the town, and carry tbe bad  news everywhere-  They had scarcely been gone, a quarter  of an hour, when a rough band Avas  laid upon the lock of tlie door, and  Daniel Scratton entered bis Avil'c's private sitting-room.  "Daniel,", she ��������� said. speaking very  gently, andAvifh her eyes red Avith weeping,  "I've bad news."  "TIaA'c you?" sneered her husband,  flinging himself into a chair. "Then  you'ie bring-big your pigs to an overstocked  market.    Where's  Adolpbus?"  "It's of 'Dolphus 1 want to speak to  you- It's not to be expected Daniel,  that we can put old heads ujpon young  shoiddi-rs-"  "Confound the woman!

I was disappointed  in this, as I had read that it was a great  treat to roil a Billingsgate lishwoman  ami hear her swear. . My stock of information was increased almost, immediately, for I learned thai the saleswomen  d-isappeared .from Billingsgate with the  retail trade. The women can be found'  elsewhere today, and they are as vulgifr  as of yore.  Conspicuously displayed outside the  market .house were large placards reading. "If any porter shall be guilty" of dishonesty or drunkenness, or use, any obscene, filthy or abusive language, or commit any asstialt, or otherwise misconduct  himself, he.shall- have liis license -revoked."  .' I copied the above on leaving. When i  first read it. I was foolish enough to  suppose that Billingsgate was a decent  soil ef place. I trusted'the placards implicitly.

Once inside it did not seem so bad.  ' Everything was hurry and bustle. Devoted entirely to wholesale, the place was  not crowded, but here and there, perhaps  in 20 places, groups of men were following the auctioneers from one pile of fish  to another. The auctioneer would mount  a stand and say something, and'before I  could catch his 'meaning he''would chip  his hands as evidence of sale, jump to���������  the Ooor an* go to the next pile.

The prevalence, of sprains and strains  owing to the ' indulgence -in athletic  exercises of all kinds moves an authority on the treatment of these painful nccideuts to say:  A little common sense treatment is  often airthatis.needed when the strain  is at ankle or wrist and without com-,  plications. It will swell very alarmingly' at first and gradually develop a  ''frightful'looking, bruise, but from the  first it should'.,hav,e complete rest..ind  a treatment of hot and cold douches,  the hot being used at first, when tlie  swelling is painful.'and the cold later  on, as a sort of tonic to the relaxed  muscles. The hot must be very hot  and the cold very cold, as the tepid  water does harm rather than good.  For the lirst day of a strain, when  all the wrenched cartilages and muscles are aching, great relief is found in  a poultice of egiS and salt. To make it,  beatthe white of an egg till light/but  not stiff.. Stir in gradually a cup and  a half of .salt, or more if needed, to  make a thick, pasteXke icing. Spread  this ou a'cloth and bandage in place.  Cover all with oil silk or a thick bath  towel to protect the sheets, since the  egg leaks out continually. . After this  has relieved- the soreness begin with  hot water fomentations and wear a  light, firm bandage, except at night.  A .Jovial   Pttir.  "Mrs. O'Bese is getting awfully stout.

It is surprising what a large number of men and women s;:l'i'er from  the wretched uneasiness and torturing itching, of piles. Vou may be  among those who, through modesty  or fear of the surgeon's knife, havo  been prevented front appealing to  your physician for a cure, ir'ou have  tried the hundred and one things that,  friends have recommended and have  become discouraged. You say, as'  many have said before you, that  there is no cure for piles.  Now is the time for you to turn to  Dr. Chase, whose famous ointment is  recognized the world over as the only  actual cure for every form of piles.  The real substantial value of "Dr.  Chase's Ointment has given it a  unique position among medicines. It  is used in nearly every neighborhood  on this continent and has become  known by word of mouth from friend  to friend and neighbor to neighbor.  Ask your friends about it, ask your  druggist, ask your doctor. Others  have been discouraged, and after  years of misers' have been cured by  Dr. Chase's Ointment. Here is one.  Mrs. James Brown, Tlinfonburg, near  Ottawa, writes :���������"I have been a  constant     sufferer  from  nearly  every  form -'of piles for the last 20 years,  and during'" that time, both here and  in the old country, have fried almost  every  remedy.  "I am only doing justice to Dr.'  Chase's Ointment when I say that.I  believe it to be the best remedy obtainable for bleeding and protruding-  piles. 1 strongly recommend Dr.  Chase's Ointment to mothers, or indeed, to any person suffering from  that  dread  torment���������-piles."  Mr. George Thompson, a leading  merchant of Blenheim, Ont.,"states :  "I was: troubled with itching, piles  for 15 years, and at times they were  so bad I could scarcely walk. I tried  a great many remedies, but never  found anything like Dr. Chase's Ointment. After the third application I  obtained relief, and was completely  cured by using one box." Ask your  neighbors about Dr. Chase's Ointment, the only absolute cure for  piles.  You can obtain Dr. Chase's Ointment for 60 cents a box from, any  dealer. If you prefer, enclose this  amount to these offices and the remedy will be sent, postpaid, to your  address.

Mi\tt Itominy  stood over hihi watching for a"ny sign of  life and with a commanding gesture keeping the throng back. The eyes, in whieh  consciousness slowly dawned, wandered  from point to point and at 'length rested  upon the countenance of the captain .of  the-life savers, and there they rested,  growing gradually rounder as a look of  horror crept into them.  At length, with a convulsive start, he  strove to rise, but, too weak, sank back,  screaming. "Keep off: keep off!" waving  lfominy away with frenzied gesture.  The face of tho latter had assumed an  unaccountable pallor, and,' with' a harsh,  broken.laugh, he snarled:  "Give him a turn over that keg. men,  an git the salt water out of him."  But the fellow, struggling to his feet,  ran like the wind straight toward the sea.  He was soon caught and. relapsing into  unconsciousness, was carried to the cottage of old Jane Chisholm, about a mile  back from the beach.  Yarbourne had been a  silent, and much  puzzled observer of all  this.    The storm  /had apparently driven tbe man insane, he  thought.  The rescued man tossed for a week or  two in delirium under the rafters of the  old salt box hut.  In the small hours one night Goody  Garlic, who was' iii red .to-watch at his  bedside, wjts ;iroused from a doze by the  voice of the sick man.  "O Cod. the crurVinillston'os."' lie cried.

Three years before the town of East  Bromptnn was roused from its lethargy  by. one. of I hose happenings which contrasted so sharply with its dreamy life as  a chasm opening in. n sunlit plain.  One morning When the gray east was  shot with red .Mary Heath strode into  town, wild eyed and drenched with dew,  and rapped, loudly at Justice Larry Os-  born's door. ,  ��������� "There's, somethin   wrong  over  t'   the  mill." she panted  in answer to his gruff  query.    "Has anybody  seen  Gideon?    I  been settin up all night watchin for him.  He started out last night   with  the meal  bag, an I haven't seen him since!"  "What's the matter at the mill?"  "They's���������t hoy's"���������she   clutched   at   the'  door facing���������"blood  run bin .out  from under the mill door, an when  I looked in the  window the hopper was all splashed with  it,   an"���������     And   she  swooned   upon   the  doorstep.

"But who conies hereV"  Seated beside his, ".'bonny." riding slow:  !y up the lane, was MalrRominy, the ex-  mill   keeper,   for   since  the  tragic  occurrence  of- three  years, before,   still  "enveloped in mystery, bis mill stood there abandoned,   like   a   thing   accursed,   the' evil  grist bf that'dreadful night being the last  ir. ever turned out.    Something disturbed  Yarbourne's   vision.     Was   his   drawing  wrong, or had the arms of the 'mill moved?  High   over   the   crest   of   the   dim   hill  against the fast  fading sky between  the  rows of sorrowfully trailing billows* that  stood  lamenting over the  salt marsh  the  great   wings  of   the   accursed   mill   were  slowly  beginning  to  move,   and   from "its  unused , hinges  came  crcakiiigs   as'-of  a  thing in'pain.  Faster turned the skeleton arms, and  louder came the' dismal'creaking; which  rose to a shriek���������a chattering, broken,  awful sound, which suddenly ceased as  the arms stopped turning.        ' ' '  *���������  Yarbourne had risen -to his feet, and  was gazing fixedly, scarce believing his  eyes; when a something seemed , to-issue  ���������from the mill and sidle and gyi;ate adown  the hill-. On it came, past the salt tarn,  under the billows, anon melting in the  twilight.  "Pshaw!" said, .Yarbourne.' , "It's only  Vyler's red calf. Must have got* through  the gap.    Oh, my God. look!"     '  Not 20 yards from him. hovering limply  over the. road, was a-dark red figure, with  daunting    rags   and    for    a    moment    a.  _ glimpse   to   his   bursting   eyes   of   what  might have been a face.  As it wavered Yarbourne heard a gurgling cry behind him, and. turning, he beheld the miller on his knees, whiter than  stone, with both arms stretched out before him.  , "Let me alone!" he screamed. "I won't  go along. Oh, look! Where are his  arms?" And he fell frothing in the road.  Yarbourne bent over him and shook  him.    He sat up with a ghastly smile.  "It's nathin. Mr. Yarbourne���������a tech of  the jimjams. that's all. That Sag Harbor whisky always1 does it."  He mounted his horse and disappeared  in the dusk.  Yarbourne. much shaken, packed his  traps hastily and stalked slowly homeward, muttering:    *  The mills of the gods grind slowly,  But they grind exceeding small.  A dog howled plaintively as he passed  Mary Heath's cottage, and over the dark  ridge of its roof hung a gibbous moon.  Yarbourne went that evening to Mother Chisholm's to see the convalescent sailor.  He sat long, smoking and observing  him.  incidentally he mentioned that ha had  been' sketching the old mill.  The man immediately showed so much  agitation that the artist became apprehensive and passed him his pocket flask.  "There! Take a nip of that, and you'll'  feel better."  The sa'iio'r did so. und Yarbourne began  to talk about , rh������- .-rescue, and Hominy's  bravery. ,-'���������������������������  "Brave!" whispered the man. "And  so's the devil : brave.

And,  showing signs of going to pieces again, he  took another pull at the flask at Yar-  oourne's suggestion and,, motioning to the  door, said:  "Shut it tight an fast an listen to  what I I ell you.

"I come from down the island, an about  three years ago I was on my way to Sag  Harbor to ship aboard the -Goliath, a  whaler, goin for a <i hree years' cruise. It  ���������was night when I passed in the lane by  the mill an, bein tired out, perched on  a fence to rest a bit.  "I was lookin up at the big mill, when  all on a sudden the arms began to go  roun' with a terrible creakin, an it seemed  to me they was the sound of voices mixed with it. I didn't see uo light in the  winders, an I walked over thar woaderin  why they was workin without any light.  '* 'Twits what you call a, white night.  Yon could see ns plain as day. an as I  got nearer there was sech a screechin an  chattcrin as made my blood run cold,  'fhout knowin exactly why. 1 looked in  at the winder���������give me some more of  thai. The mill stopped an the noise, too.  an, O Lord, that devil of a boat's captain  was pullin away from the grindstones the  armless body of a man!  " 'There!' says he. 'Curse you. you'll  steal no more corn, nor sweethearts outlier!'   He come crecpin out the door, an I  d\Iy profession isn't a popular one.  There, is considerable prejudice against  it. I don't myself think it's much worse  than a. good many others. ' However,  that's nothing to do with my story. Some  years ago me and thec gentleman who  was at that time connected with me in  business���������he's met with reverses since  then and at, present isn't able to go out-  was looking' around for a job' being at'.  that time rather hard up,* as' yon might  say. We struck a small country town���������1  ain't going togiveitaway by telling where  it "was or what' the name of it was. There  was one bank there. The president was  a rich old duffer: owned the mills, owned  the bank, owned most of the town. There  .wasn't ho other officer but the, cashier,  and they had a boy. who used to sweep  out and run of errands.       ,  The bank was ou the main street, pretty well up one end of it���������nice, snug place  on the corner of a cross street, with nothing very near it. We took our observations and found there .wasn't no trouble  at all about it. There was an old watchman that walked up and down the street  nights, when he didn't fall asleep and  forget it. Tbe vault had two doors. The  outside one war? chilled iron and had a  three wheel combination lock. The inner  door-wasn't no dour at ail: you could kick-  it open. It didn't pretend to be nothing  but fireproof, and ir wasn't, even that.  The first thing we done, of course, was  to fit a  key to the outside door.  This was our plan. After the key was  fitted J was to go into the bank, and  Jim���������that wasn't his name, of course,'  but let it pass���������was to keep watch on  the outside. When any one passed, he  ;yas to tip me a whistle. . and then 1  doused the glim and lay .low. After  they go by I goes on again. Simple  and easy, you see. Well, the night as we  selected tbe president happened to be  ��������� out of town; gone down to the city, as be  often did. I got inside all right with a  slide lantern, a breast drill, a small steel  jimmy, a bunch of skeleton keys and a  green baize hair to stow the swag. I  lixed my light am) i igged my brea-l drill  and got to work on the door, right over  t'a? look.  Probably, a  great  many  of your read  ers   is   hot   so   well   posted   as   me  about  bank   locks,   and    I    may   say    Cor   them  that  a three wheel combination  lock  has  three   wheels   in   il   and   a - sloi    in   each  wheel.     In  order to unlock  the door you  have  to  get   the  three  slots  opposite   t<.  each  other  ar  the  top  or  the  lock.     Of  course if you  know the number the lock  is   set   on   you   can   do   this,   but   if  you  don't   you   have   to   depend   on   your   ingenuity.      There   is   in   each    of    these  wheels a  small  hole,  through-which  you  put  a wire through the back of the lock  when you change the combination:- Now.  if   you   can    bore   a    hole   through    the  door    aud    pick    up    those    wheels    by  running   a    wire   through    those     holes,  why.   you   can   open   the   door.      1   hope  I   make    myself    clear.     I   was   boring  that   hole.     The  door   was  chill..0   i'-on,  about the neatest stuff 1 ever wo.  I   went on   steady   enough:  only   stop;- -  when Jim���������which,  as  I  said,  wasn't  his  real   name���������whistled    outside,   and    the  watchman toddled by.    By and by. when  I'u got pretty near through. I  heard Jim  ���������so to speak���������whistle again.    I  stopped,  and pretty soon 1 heard footsteps outside,  and  I'm blowed if they didn't come right  up   the  bank   steps,  and   I   heard   a   key  in   the   lock.     I   was   so   dumfoundered  when  I heard  that   that  you could have  slipped the bracelets right on tne.    I picked  up rny  lantern,  and   I'll   be hanged   if  1 didn't let the slide slip down and throw  the light right on to the door, and  there  was   the   president.

New   York   Man  WitJi   lite  Kxjvci-t   in  London,     n,  "I was in' London several years ago  transacting some business for the United  States government," said a New York  business man. "I had to have a good deal  of typewriting done arid used to take it to  a young woman who had an oflice in the  Strand. Near by there was then, and  probably is now,'a chess club. It was a  'bnhemian sort of resort and was much  frequented by foreign players of the  game. I had often heard of thc-place and  that strangers were welcome, so one day  while waiting for some typewriting to be  finished I went up stairs to the place.  '"Shortly after I had entered and was  glancing around to familiarize myself  with the surroundings a dark young man  came up and bowing pleasantly accosted,  me in broken English. He said that he  saw I was a stranger, but that all such  were more than welcome there and offered lo escort me around the place. lie  asked me if I played chess, and 1 replied  that I was a member of tho New York  Chess club, though by no means- an expert at the game.  "He then asked me if I would like to  play and offered himself as'an opponent,  saying that as I deemed myself a novice  he would ��������� handicap himself by playing  without the queen. 1 replied that I  would gladly play, but would not accept  any odds at first, but that after we had  played a few games together he couid  judge of my abiiii.v and we could easily ���������  arrange what h.-iaiicap I should have.

Yet. notwithstanding his  strange way of playing, I could make no'  headway at all and could not manage to  take any of his pieces.  "I castled my king and directed my  play entirely on the defensive, endeavoring at the same time to fathom his methods, which by this time seemed almost  uncanny. Suddenly he mado a move in  a direction I least expected and said,  "Mate in two moves.'  "I carefully scanned the board, arid it  was as he said, and then I fathomed the  reason of his peculiar moves. Fie bad  checkmated mo v.-it bout the loss of a,  piece by either of ns.
