Judging   by  the  way this article is   inserted, it   appears to have been wrilteu by some  one   connected    with     the  paper,  prompted by an outsider  who  has  not the courage to   write   over   his  own signature and bear the sting of  public disapproval that   must   follow after the printing   of  such   an  article aa the one referred to.    The  Cumberland    football   team  came  ..hete.on Feb. 7th to play a game for  the     intermediate    championship,  and while here were treated in    the  most royal manner, in  fact, as well  as any body of spores could desire.  After the game-there   was   not  a  single one of the -players  who  had  a word of complaint to offer against  the treatment  they   received  from  the referee, or that they had in any  way been   treated   mif.'ir   at  any  could1 have  caused   them on  their  return    home   to   Cumberland   to  1  have published in the newspaper  statements which they themselves  knew to be misleading and untrue.  It is news to, us to hear from the  writer of this obnoxious article that  this is not tlie first time that' Mr.  Adam has made himself notorious1  by his unsportsmanlike conduct as  a football referee,' and would like  the5 intelligent .man whoever he  may be to inform us   whenever be-  f r  fore, the decisions of Mr. Adam were  I ^ r        - >   K  abused _o much ason this present  occasion.. We wTish everyone to  know that Mr. Adam has always  referxed in a most, ^upright manner,  that he has referred most of the  games here for the past number of  years and has always' given   satis-  faction to both   parties concerned  (*      .

It did  tl  /       not begin'on the day of lhe fight, as thoy  ' -   ,      say.  It-,began years ago, when lit _to and  "r- Jose   were little  boys  and   before  J use  wcnt.to the town to live.    It was due to  . the jealousy which Jose had for Koato.  '. My boy may have been at fault some-  - -times. m No one is all perfect.    But the  ,  main fault, lay with Jose.    He was jealous because he was not so big and strong  as Reato, and, later, when they grew old-  ���������- ei\ he was jealous of Iteato's good looks.  '   '"     It was that which caused  it all at last,  1 for it was that which 6rst caused Reato  to win the favor of Estal'anie.  '    "Even if I, his father, do say it,* there  is no handsomer or braver youth in the  mountains than Reato.    And lieato rhas  enjoyed the good things which have come  to me.     When he'went to the town  to  .    .  take care of my business," there was no  one who could surpass him.  "So it was' that he attracted the attention  of   Estafanie   when   he  passed ��������� the  "   home of hor father.'   She saw him, and  < ;from the first she favored- hiin. *' Reato  <������������������'���������'    .did not know her then,, but'he saw her  at the window, and her. beauty aroused  the love withiu'hitn.    Ho did1 not leave  the town   until  he   found   out  who  she  was,,and when he was told that'she was  *   "      the daughter of the alcalde he was in no  - * way disheartened,'for he kuew'that my  - '���������      position was such that'he was the equal  '' , ;    of the alcalde's daughter.  ���������  .   /'From that time lieato went into town  much'.      He   frequented   the, homes   of-  those he knew and who were known to  \ me, and there he met Estafanie.    In'a  o     little time it was plain that the love he  felt for the girl was returned by her, and,  though   nothing had  been   said,  I   knew  that  the time of theuAvedding  was  not  '  far off,   for  I  had   spoken   with   the  alcalde and had found that he was willing  , that his daughter should marry my son.  "But at that time came the first sign of  1 the   trouble   which   is   ending   now,   for  . *- ..    what .we did not know at-first soon became plain, and that was that Jose also  . ��������� desired   the  girl for his wife.    He had  known her ever since he had gone to the  ��������� "'���������     town from the mountains, aud, though he  ; had  said  nothing,   he had  made up  his  "' '    mind that she should be his.    So when  - Reato came and found favor in her eyes  tne 'old anger and jealousy were roused  stronger than ever in Jose.  "Matters stood in this wise for some  time. Reato had made up' His mind to  say nothing to Estafanie until after the  great bullfight in holy week. He had  been made el capitan of the banderilleros  for the great fight. That, you know, is a  high honor for 'a youth like Reato, for  among the banderilleros under him were  men y:\xo had served as toreadors and  , who had much reputation in the districts  from which they came. But Reato,  > though he has never yet been a toreador,  had won a name for himself as a ban-  derillero by the daring he had always  shown when he was in the ring. So they  raade him el capitan.  "All this only stirred up the more the  bad feeling in Jose's heart. , There was  no chance for him to win honor and glory  in the great fight, for ho had never fought  in the riug and his nature was one that  made him resort more to subtle tricks  than to open fights.  "At last came the day of the great  (light and of the trouble which followed.  The benches were filled long before even  the little fights, for everyone was anxious  to have a good place from.which to see  the groat event. W.e from the mountains  were there. More than 200 of us had  places together, for we had come together and purchased our seats at the  same time. It was all by chance or by  the plan of the good God, for the fact  that we all sat together was the.only  thing that saved the life of Reato.  '.'.   . "I don't know how the little fights came  out. We paid no attention to them, and  what camo afterward made us forget  'what little we did see. At last came the  great fight. . The bull was one of, the  finest I ever saw. He was a monster  and a gray one^_ specially selected, for  you know that "gray ones fight the best.  "As they opened the door of his pen  and he came into thp ring, Reato, at the  head of his banderilloros, stood opposite.  The bull pawed the earth and looked  around. Reato advanced and waved his  crimson cloak, flaunting it even into the  bull's eyes. Then tho. great boast sprang  for him, but Reato was quick and-leaped  to one side and as the bull sprang past  him planted two of the barbed darts in  his shoulder.  "It was the first blow of the fight, and  the  crowd  in  the  benches cheered,  and  we from the mountains cheered most of  all.  "The other banderilleros came forward  r<> attack tlie Inil in then* turn, bin  lloau-  ordered   thorn   back,   for   be   wa������   !if>!   ye  throng'1. This was whore lie made a i:*is  :**k*'.   for ir  routed the jealousy  of s<-r. o  of lhe banderillero-*. and the tcwuepeople  took tl.o'.r side, for they are always j.*.il  ous of us from .the mountains.  "Again ��������� lieato advanced against th"  bn'1. and again, after he had angered him  until it seemed as though the great beast  was insane did he drive more darts in  t!;e {rreat gray sides. Rut he did hot, do  this without much danger to himself, for  he let the bull charge **o close.to him that'  as he finally leaped to one side the horns  of the crazed animal caught his jacket at  the shoulder and tore, it eiear to the edge.  ���������"Airaiu a_d**a__in did lieato face the  ball, and each lime lie escaped after lie  had diivon mure of his little spears into  the animaT:-. .sides. The glory which  tiny had planned to ".win for themselves  was ail gone to Ileat'o.    ,       ,    ''  "At la.st Reato had so exhausted the  great bull that the toreador. was called  in quickly, for it was plain that .unless  he came then he would have little to do.  Reato had so exhausted the animal that  there was little left, and instead of tlie  fight being one between the toreador and  the bull it had really, been one between  the capitan of the banderiileros' and the  bull.  "Finally the toreador came. He let  his horse be gored by the bull, though he  need not have done it., and then plunged  his'sword, lo the hilt in the -rreat 'beast's  nectt. It was a good stroke, and it do-  served the praise and applause that it  brought. y r    , '  "But with the end of the fight came the  final trouble.   As>they wore dragging out  v-the body of the .bull and the people weie  leaving their places a crowd of rho boys  of  the  town   began   to  shout   insults   at  Reato.   .They  were angry, owith  him   be;-  , cause  he   was  from, the  mountains   and  had won the great glory of the day. taking it from the men from the-districts in  the  valley.     They  would  uot  havo done  as they did had it uot been for .lose, "for  it was plain to all that he had set them  ' up to it and  was in  this way  trying to  take a revenge upon Reato.  "For a time Reato, full of his victory,  paid no attention to the shouts of the  boys, but at last one of them fluns'a clod  at him. At that Reato turned and. caleh-  ,ing the boy by ,the shoulder, shipped his  face and as he did so-said:        (    "*  "Take that .toe thy sneaking master  and teuMiim'that he has only to meet me  to receive it, direct!' c  ��������� "The boy rail away, and the other boys  followed him.   ���������      ��������� '  . "We from the mountains thought uo  more about the matter, and we went to  <the inn, where we had food and wine. It  became ni'e to act the host to the others  from the mountains.' for they wore all  friends of Reato. So it was that it was  after sunset when 'we 'started*- upon our  journey, to Lou'r~ homos. There had'been  ,no more insults to Reato, and none of us  feaied trouble-as we set out. .  1 "We had gone ,beyond the town per-  ' haps'three, miles and were where the road  r passes through the first cut in tho rock,  lieato and I'were a'little'behind, for our  ponies were walking more slowly than  those of the others... There was no  thought of danger in our mind, when  suddenly 1 heard a step' behind mo. 1  turned just in time to see a knife flash1'  in an upraised hand. I tried to ward off  the blow, but I was too late, and it struck  mo in the side. It did not kill, as it bad  been intended, but it made a long gash,  and I fell from my pony.  ���������'Almost as the blow was given Reato  turned and saw it. He saw, too, what I  saw���������that "the man who struck it was  Jexo." With a shout he sprang after the  fellow', but Jose turned and (led down the  road. Reato kept on in pursuit.  ' . "I called, and some of the men ahead  heard and came back. When thoy saw  m. covered with blood and I told them"  wl.nt had happened, thoy' followed after  Reato as fast as ihoir ponies could carry'  thr-m. They hoped ro overtake Jose he-  fore he had gone far because both ho and  Reato were on foot.  ' "But he must have fled with great  speed or the pursuit must have been slow,  for they were nearly to the town whon  thoy saw a group of meu ahead of them.  S.'ine of thorn weie friends of Jose and  some were the police* whom they had  summoned... In the center of the group  w.is lieato, whom they had made a prisoner. The reason for it was plain, for,  on the ground was Jose, dead, and with  Ilea to's knife beside him.  "Jose's friends were insisting that  Reato should be given up to them, but  the police were taking him away whon  our men camo ep. They knew that there  would bo no justice for a mountain man  in the town. and iht-y knew. too. lluit  Jose deserved the death which Reato had  meted out to him, for hail he not tiied to  strike down lieato from behind and  wounded m. by mistake? So they.ehised  in on the police and lhe friends of Jose.  The former they seized and held. The  latter they boat and drove away. Then  they took Reato and brought him to me,  and all of us fled to the mountains.  "And that '.is. why. you cannot see lieato  now. The men in town aro making  much trouble because of their envy and  hatred. Thoy demand that he be given  up to them for trial, but we will not do  it. Cor we know that there is no fairness  among them. They showed that by their  actions after the great fight.  "So now Reato is away. He will not  come back until all the trouble is over.  That will not be long, and if you will  remain with us you shall see him when  he comes. If you cannot stay, as you  say. then I will send for you. for he  wants you to be present at his wedding  to Estafanie, which is to take place as  soon as he comes back. I have seen the  alcalde, and it is all arranged. They aro  to live here in the mountains with me,  and, as I am growing old. Reato will  soon ��������� take my place. There will be no  trouble about Jose. That, too. is arranged. In a few days all will bo right  and 1 will send for you."���������Chicago Tribune.  A  Spellbound  Peacock.

Colonel Tytler while stalking a peacock was .surprised to find that he could  come very near' to the bird, which, indeed, seemed not to notice him at, all, but  kept.its eyes fixed on a thicket near by.  Looking in the same direction, he presently saw a leopard -creep stealthily, on its  belly, out of the thicket. He aimed his  gun at the beast, but was startled almost  out of his wits when the leopard^1 raised  a fore paw and cried in a voice of terror:  "Don't shoot, sahib! Don't shoot!"  The man in the leopard's skin explained that-he always hunted ��������� peacocks in  such guise ami that he nor only always  succeeded in getting within bowshot, but  had ' frequently caught birds with his  hands. ,   ,,  Fainting;.

PETER'S.  th<*  CHEAP SPONGES.  Where    Those    Sold    by    the    Street  Fakir. Are Procured.  Sponges sold by the street fakir are  rather captivating in appearance, large  and almost white.'and tbe price ranges  from 5 to 10 cents each. People wti'o  have bought sponges at a. drug store  know tbat no such looking articles can  be got there for so little money, and so  they invest. But thoy don't invest  more than once, because the sponge  soon falls to pieces, whereas a good  sponge will last for years.  Somebody "started a story years ago  that the reason the fakirs could sell  these sponges so cheaply was because  they bought them from the hospitals,  and there are some people who still believe it. As if men devoting all their  energies and skill to ameliorating the  ills of mankind would spread disease  by distributing old and possibly germ  infected sponges. As a matter of fact  surgeons' sponges are small and  smooth-as. velvet, being close grained.  The fakirs"sponges are the clippings  off .the big sponges sold to liverymen  arid others who need large sponges..  The parts cut away have little, body  and would soon tear loose. Tlie fakirs  buy these bits, trim them into shape  and then give them a bath in diluted  muriatic acid. After lying there for 12  hours they are taken out and washed  in, clear water and Cried. They are,  bleached, in other words, but at still  further detriment to the sponge. Never of close texture, the mesh is made  more rotten by the acid, and that is  why tbey soon fall apart. But so far  as disease; is concerned they are as  pure as any sponge bought, in the finest  drug store.

Not long -ago  Mr.    Johnson chanced to    be in Porter's     drug-  store,    in     Bridgewater,  when  a case of Dr.   Williams'     Pink  Pills   was  being  opened,   and  he    remarked  to  the     clerk :     "1  saw   the  time  when  a  dozen    boxes    of  thoss  pills wore of more value to me than  the best gold mine  in  the country."  A reporter  of the Enterprise happened  to     hear     Mr.*3 Johnson's     rather  startling     remark    and     asked "why  he  spoke     so   highly    of,   the     pills.  Mr. Johnson's statement was as follows:    "About four years ago I was  "attacked 'with la  grippe  which  kept  me from work about three ;weeks.    I  did not have it vory hard apparently,-but it left me weak all the same.  Anyhow,   after  losing /three' weeks  I  concluded to*; go' to work again. The  mine I. was. working in was making  a good deal of ws.ter and'1������ got wet  tho first  day.   That    night '   the old  trouble came back, with tho addition  of a severe  cold.    I managed   to, get  rid of the  cold,   but the whole force  of'the disease' settled-in my stomach,  kidneys   and   joints,   and. bqils   broks  out on my body and limbs.    My back  was so weak I could- scarcely "stand  alone,   while food  in every form distressed me,  and I became so nervous  that  any  unusual  noise would .overcome'me. .   I, tried     several ,sorts of  medicine, but none, seemed to do any  good.    I went to 'see a doctor.   His  "medicine helped me at first,-but after  a sbtort time lost its effect. He then  changedVthe  medicine,   but with . no  bolter    result.      About this    time , a,  clergyman-who called   at     the house  advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills.   I got  a box  and    used   them,  but they did ' not materially    benefit  me.   I had been'now some weeks idle  and  "was  feeling desperate.   A 'friend  strongly, advised me to go to a hos-  pitaP for. treatment  and  I  had- just  about  decided     to     do  so  when*  an  acquaintance     learning'   I had   taken  but .one  box   of  the  pills",   suggested  that  I  shauld  try "three,, boxes  more  before  giving * them" up.    The  matter  of money decided me on' trying     the  pills   again.   I   got'  three   boxes * and  when used I. was jguite a bit_ improved,   could  eat  light,  nutritious  food,  slept   better,      and     felt     noticeably  stronger.   But J was still an unwell  man;   As the' ��������� pills were doing a good  work, however, I sent for-eightboxes  more.      I continued using them    till  all were gone, when I felt that T -was  restored  to health.   All my stomach  trouble had disappeared,   1 was fully  as fleshy as before the first attack of  la grippe,  my  nerves were solid    as  ever,  and I knew  that'   work would  give strength to my muscles.    So, after  about  six     months,   I     went  to  work again and have not had a sick  day since.    One  dozen  boxes  of < Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills   saved   my   lit".  and gave me better health since than  I had before,  and that is why I said  they  were   worth  more   to  me   than  any gold mine, for all that a man ha*  he  will givo for his life."

Have the henhouses so constructed that  the fowls may have all the sunlight pos-  .sibl_.  The best way of disposing of fowl* that  have died of contagious disease is to burn  themv .  It is a good'plan to .wash the egg;, with  lukewarm water before putting them in  the incubator.  The three breeds thnt are best for laving are the Minorcas, Leghorns and  Black Spanish.  When at feeding time any of the fowl-  refuse to eat. it is a good sign that you  have a sick chicken.  if the fowls get too fat. give them  some grain not too rich in carbohydrates.  Oats are a good grain.      . '  "Fowls that are expected to. lay must  have plenty of opportunity . for ' exercise  or they will soon get too fat.  The refuse of cabbage���������soft heads and  outside leaves���������makes _ good green winter  food for the fowls and will be relished hy  them. Store up a good supply, to be tistd  as needed.

Typhus fever is fortunately very rare  in this country at the present day, although we even yet hear occasionally of  cases in our large cities during the winter season. It used to prevaihexteusively  in Ireland, and epidemics were often  started in American seaport towns by  importation of the disease in emigrant  ships. It is .aid still to exist in Dublin,  Liverpool and London, to some extent,  but Mexico is now its chief stronghold.  Many cases occur every winter in the  City of Mexico and elsewhere on the  great central plateau of Mexico, and  sometimes tourists from this country  catch itr there and bring it home with  them.  The disease usually begins suddenly in  the midst of apparent health with a chill,  prostration, severe pain in the head and  limbs and high fever; the pulse is rapid,  the face flushed/the skin hot,and dry,  the mouth parched. 'An almost constant  symptom is nosebleed, which occurs on  the third or fourth day of the disease,  ���������aid another is constipation.  Tho disease has a characteristic eruption which in the beginning resembles  somewhat that of measles. - It comes out  in patches of a.reddish or pink color, first  oti the'chest and then on the rest of, the  body, and the limbs. 'Later the color.  changes to a dusky purple.    '       >       .l  The nervous symptoms are marked.  They consist at first of headache and dizziness, but soon the patient falls into a  stupor fi;om which he can be amused only  with difficulty or,'else'he becomes delirious, muttering constantly to,himself in a  ; dull, confused, way or perhaps becoming  violent "and having to be restrained by  force from doing himself injury.  The affection, is probably a ,germ disease, although the microbe, if there is  one, has not yet been discovered, lt is  pre-eminently a disease of human crowding, as the old names of, ship fever and  'jail fever testify. Q It cannot* thrive in  ihe open air and is'never to be feared by  those whose dwellings are flooded .with  fresh air and sunlight. Even those already seized with the fever are not infrequently saved if moved out of the hospital ward or bedroom and kept in tents  or actually in the* open air with only a  shelter supported ou poles over the bed- ���������  . There"is no.specific remedy "for the disease, ' which" is a very fatal one. Open'  air, cleanliness and good nursing are the  uatient's only salvation.*���������Youth's Companion.       y7   UNEXPECTED GAME.  ���������     . ..     ,..  lint Sot as Enjoyable as One WcnlcT  i     Have lilked.,  i *��������� *-  Thoy were talking about hunting in the  suburban smoker, and one man" who had  been listening thoughffully said:  "I killed a bear once."   , ���������''  "You V"    There was a chorus of incredulity^  '"Yes. It happened when I was younger than I -am now. I was living in a  prairie town not a hundred'miles from  Chicago and was accustomed to take early morning rides through the only piece of*  woods on the prairie, a grove of respectable size, but to me then a veritable forest.  "One morning I had a surprise. My  horse began to snort and rear, and as I  approached the track of the only railroad  in the town I saw the cause of the disturbance���������a bear was browsing along the  tracks on the edge of the woods, a live  bear, and as it saw me' it aiood up on its  hind legs, frightening my horse into fits.  As I had no weapon of any kind, I decided quiekry. to go home and get a gun.  ���������"Now, I did not believe that the bear  would sit down and wait to be killed, but  that is exactly what he did, and after I  shot it a friend happened along and helped me get him on the horse and carry him  home. What we two did uot know about  bears would fill volumes.' but we knew  enough to skin the unwieldy animal, and  then I went to the leading butcher of the  place and made a"sale.of the carcass, a  whole bear not being available in my  bachelor menage.  "The man said bear'smeat was a great  luxury and just now was very scarce.  "I inquired about the game laws aud  .found I bad not broken them, and then  we helped the ,butcher fix up a placard  for his window. It read. 'Young Dear  Steak Today.'  "I felt quite proud of my adventure;  also somewhat surprised at lhe ease with-  which I had bagged such bi������ game, but  the next day I bad another Surprise. My  friend was looking for me, while with excitement.  " 'Say,' he began, 'do you remember the  Frenchman who went through here one  day last summer?'.  "A horrible fear caught me. 'Do you  mean the man who had the dancing  bear?'  "'The same, and it was his bear you  killed. It strayed back.here a day or two  ago. and he is here on its tracks'  "And the nuii-<!.y olil animal .was now  posing as 'young bear steak.' I settled  the matter with the butcher, and my  friend hid the pelt, and we both had urgent business in Chicago, and that was  my first and last bear hunt."���������Chicago  Times-I-Ierakl.  123,000  people are killed every year in this  country by CONSUMPTION.

Admired and advertised today, the new  locomotive is sold tomorrow- to a logging  road ami thereafter groans out its time  on steep grades under loads that make  Us round feet slip on' the rusty rails.  What is true of the engine is true of the  rail., of the ties __id.r the rails' and of  the fastenings that hold them together.  The statement of the purchasing agent'  for   the  New ,York   Central   makes  this  fact   of  railroad   wastage  most'graphic,  lie said, "We receive over $1,000,000 a  year for the waste" material of our 3.000'  miles of track.",  He got out his book and  afier goiug over it carefully added, "Yes,  we get an average of $100,000 a month."  On  this basis all'the railroads of the  United   States-would   dispose, of   about  1 SliO.OOO.OOO of wastage every*year.    The  theory and practice of economy therefore''  are an important part of arrailroad man's  education.        ��������� , '"',-'    '  "Wecould save more than we _o,7**con-  th'iuVd the agent, "but often it would cost  uiofe than,a dollar to-save'.a dollar's'  worth of material.- Toone not' familiar  'with'.railroading it might look''like pure  waste, to let the dollar's wortli^of material be lost, but nothing is worth saving  unless it will sell for more than it costs  to save it. It is op this theory that we pay  no attention to stubs'of pencils ancl to  empty ink bottles, short lamp nicks and  trifles of that class, although V have  heard that some systems do save them.  "As we get most of our ink fromone  concern, we'could-perhaps get some re*r  hate by returning the bottles, but the  .saving would not justify itself. Broken  lamp chimneys, oh the other, hand, are  another proposition. Many, of these are  of flint glass, and we save the pieces, lt  is surprising, how .many glass globes*.and  article.*, of good glass are brokeu among  our thousands *of etnploj'ees. Every  month we, gather up the fragments and  sell'the mass to the glass" men ,for one-  l'ou'rth of a cent a pound.   <" l       '  '  "Every scrap of iron that farts by the  wayside, every bit of iron bored out in  drilling holes, every broken bolt, old rail  and "old hinge is, saved, and sold ,when  there Ms.t-bulk enough. This" material  amounts to hundreds/ of thousands of  "pounds * monthly. ' The -iron waste is  gathered easily and practically without  cost.," The borings'are swept up' in1 the  repair- houses and factories in the mere  operation of keeping the places in order.  As for iroij that drops from trains on the  road, the section (hands pick that up as  they chance to see it, loss it* on their  handcars and let it accumulate at Their  section house. WheD there is enough to  make it worth while, a train takes it to  market.  "Empty barrels, carboys, pieces of  rope, scraps of* gold leaf. u*-ed for lettering, sections of rubber hose, rubber cloth  and such things have a market value that  makes them worth saving. The chief  items of saving are in the heavy articles.  We get about .*. 2r*.00U a year for discarded ties. These ties are of yellow pine,  and when cut into short blocks make a  splendid fire. Some of the best people of  this city use them in their old fashioned  tin-places. We sell theMies for a dime  each, and they a."e cheap fuel at that.  rWe cannot afford to haul them to market  from the distant places on thi; line, and  what the fanners and section men there  do not want to take free we burn up to  get them out of the way. Thefts of material from the roadside are so trifling  as to be not worth considering.  "Rails come next to ties in value. The  best and heaviest rails must be used on  the main lines all the time. Many rails  are retired from th" main line while still  good for lighter service. These are often  placed on side tracks. Often a rail that  is of no value to us at all is good enough  for some road using lighter locomotives,  or on"some backwoods logging road, and  so it goes to another master, serving until  finally, worn out, when it finds its way to  the melting pot, to begin life again, perhaps as'a1 rail, but more likely in some  other form. '        , '   ' <  . "The greatest loss in operation is in the ���������  locomotives and cars. There as so many  new types of engine*; and cars that it is  impossible to-toll fairly what they cost.  I������nt for the purpose of showing waste we  will strike an average. A new en cine  -costs from $12,000 to $15,000.* and will '  last about ,15 years by being shifted ,from  the'main line to side lines and switches.  In' the end it is sold for about $2,000 or  $-1,000. according to condition.' It may be  utterly unfit for our work "and yet be of  value to some smaller road, or to some  factory for shunting cars among warehouses. Often, however, an engine, ad-, ,  tnally'wears out in our service, and-then  it goes directly into the melting pot. On,'  every engine there will be certain parts  that are not worn, and the old machine is  carefully dismantled 'of all valuable material before it is sold'as scrap.  "Old cars are' passed along tbe line in  much, the, same  way.    A  new- passenger  coach  costs  about '$2.(.M)0 and   after 25  years of service   will   bring  about* $N00.  A new freight car will cost from $050 to  -,'$700 and  will sell  after-'IF* or 20 years'  service for about $1">0"   New'cars are always  of 'the   latest   pattern.    They,  are  used  at  first  on   the  best trains and  asv  they   become   antiquated   are   retired   to  humbler service until their final use with  ns  is in  construction, trains.1   Mauy, we  ���������sell  to smaller roads in out of���������the way,  places, and many  are  bought   by  theat-,  rical companies and circuses., When  we  decide to put o  ear into the "scrap  pile. ������  we sell to one man'tbe -privilege of ripping, out tbe wood, to "another the pipes,'1"  and so,on. until each class of^material-is  distributed   to^ the  trade  from   which  itv,  -came originally.".*   - -s< *  "   fl  A Pointer.

In  the course of a couple of hours I returned to fhe money lender's'office.

I was a  'given plenty-of reading matter, and the  doctor nlayed chess with kip. and tak-  ������_ altogether the time did pot pass nn-  olpasantly. In the three weeks I was  in the house I saw only the doctor and  the old woman. At 9 o'clock oue pv>n-  incr I was told that my cure was complete and ten minutes later was being  driven away from the building in a  closed carriage. After an hour's ride I  was set down in a street- in Whito-  chap*������l. and had I' been backed by all  th*1 police of London 1 could uot" have  found the house ;where I had been held  captive.

I did hot go to the police  officially, but I did tell the'story to a  'detective on' .the quiet. How tbey  would have regarded it at Seot-flnd'  Yard may be judged, from what th������*  officer said to' _ne., At tbe end of the  .tory he winked and grinned and observed:  "What a race of natural born liara  you Yankees a������e!"

I  found I was right in this. wh< _ I  had stared my errand, he laughed in  my face and colled me a fool. Between  ourselves b������ did not deny the swindle.  On the contrary, he boast������*d of the slick  Way in which it had been worked. He  -had furnished the brains, and John  Saunders was the catspaw. He had secured ������19.000 of tbe money and escaped the law, while bis partus- had fled  to a foreign land with the remnant and  died among stranger*-)  "My dear sir," be said as he smiled  and rockPd to and fro, "you were a dolt  to come on any such errand. You have  papers,' but 1 would not give you the  price of a dinner for them. 1 am solid,  and you can't disturb me. Go to Scotland Yard, go to the attorney, do what  yon will, and I shall only laugh at  you."    _  Neither Scotland Yard nor the attorneys could belp me In the case. While  It couldn't be called blackmail, it was  nn attempt to squeeze money out of a  6wlndler. Tbe one interview satisfied  me that my mission was a failure, and  I hade Mr. Smallwood good daj* with  as much courtesy as I could assume.  It was about luuchtlme when I left his  office, and I dropped into a modest restaurant for a light meal. I had scarcely got seated when a stranger who had  a seedy-genteel look about him asked  permission to take the opposite side of  the table, saying he had some information to give me. When we had begun  on our meal, be said:  "I saw you.leave old Smnllwood's office and followed you. Has he done you  a bad turn?"  I did not give my case away in replying,   but  gave  him   to understand  that the money lender had**refused-to  ,do the square thing by me.  "He's a cur, a cheat, a swindler and  all that's mean and contemptible!" continued the stranger, with a good deal  of feeling. "He has ��������� cheated and  wronged mo. and I can g-������t no satisfaction. Today, however. I, learned of an  incident in his past life that will give  me n good hold on him.

He grew sociable aud jolly ���������as  the affair was concluded; aud my glas������  was no-sooner "embty than he'pressed  'me to.drink again. "Of a sudden thing*  began lo "whirl, and then came a blank.  When I recovered consciousness, it was  morning, and I was lyingon a;cot bed  in a strange room. My head buzzed  and racked, my throat was as dry as  oappr. and as I rolled out-of bed1 and  attempted to stand myt knees ga~e way  and let nie down. A strange man cam**  to me and talked, and It was given  something to d''!nk. but It was late in  the afternoon before my brain was  clcr enough to nudest. nd things.

I  asked.  "In Dr. Colwell's orivate lunatic  asylum," he replied.  "Who brought me here?"  "Your friends.

"I see how 't is." I said as I looked  him straight 'n the eye. "I am indebted to Smallwood .for this. He drugged  me and had me brought here that he  mi^ht have time lo fix up his affairs  r-nd skip. I demand my liberty this instant!"  "Come, come." he replied In a coaxing way as<*he patted me on the shoulder. "1 know uo one named Smallwood. Your friends in Beacon street  brought you here, and Dr. fler-ry made  out the papers. All was perfectly regular. Let us havo no excitement. T>iu-  ner will be ready in half an hour.  Meanwhile think lt over."  In  that   half hour  I   figured  it  out.  Smallwood had drugged and abducted  me.   It might or might not be a private  insane asylum, but the man had surely  been bribed to hold me fast for a time.  If I raised a row, it would be the worse  for me.   If I remained passive. I would  be set at liberty as soon as the money  lender left  the country.   I decided to  make the best of things, and when the  doctor returned I was very quiet.  The  two   of  us  ate  supper  together  in  a  small room and were waited upon by  an old woman.   He called me Mr. Per-  rine, and, according to his talk. I was  a member of n mercantile firm in London. Next morning ��������� was taken to walk  in a narrow garden surrounded by high  walls.

I- knew it  from   her actions,   and   three   months  after I left ,tho bouse she was caught  in a similar offense and owned up to  the .first, theft.   -However,  the. crime  was  laid  off on   me/ and* because   I  made   indignant   and   perhaps   impudent protest  I   was  flung out  of  the  house at half an hour's notice and re-  fused a character.    l,was idle for the  ��������� next three months.    The first thing demanded   when   1   applied   for  a  place  was a character.    As soon as  it was  learned that I had 'none it was useless  to talk further.    It was for this reason  that 1 finally paid a fee to an intelligence office in Margate street and was  at length sent for to take a place at  general   housework.     It   was   an   old  man   named   Dyson   who   wanted   me.  He was will in,, to take me without a  character  because   he   would   have   to  pay   less   wages   and   because,   as   he  grimly   asserted,   there   was   nothing  lying around loose in his house for one  to  steal.    As  we  sat  face 'to   face   I  sized him up as mean and penurious,  but I did uot see any evil in ft. m.    He  had an aged and iufirin  wife, he told  f lone, as he had done tor the last two  months, if he medirat-ed anything of  that sort. I didn't know the depth of  'his er. ft. however. lie had brought  in" there to work her death through  me. The first thing 1 sifspicioued this  way was one morning when he asked  me to belp her down stairs. The stairs  were steep and shaky, and he had pried  one of the steps loose, that it might  slide from under our feet,- As a'matter of fact, it did /give, way. but 1  caught myself and saved the woman.  When old Dyson saw the failure of,his  .plot, he looked chagrined and savage  and presently found excuse for culling  the'pooi  wif.'s ears.  ���������In  the  course  of  a couple <of  weeks  ... ciffeiareu max the cellar was full of  rats and gave me money and com-,  ruanded me to buy arsenic. - lie recommended me to go 10 n store miles away  and to say that I wanted it for my  complexion and to give my own name.  1 went to a druir store only two blocks  away, and igave his name, and when  he discovered this be was highly in  dignunr for a day. and I rather expect**,  ed to be thrown ont. However, in the  course of three or four days ,he derel-'  oped another plan After coaching the  old wife he left'me alone with her for  the first time,  and   she begged   me to  'get her some laudanum for toothache  and not mention the- matter.to him. lt  was easy to tell that she had been  coached whaf'to'xayi and I refused to  'buy-the 'drug-., A few days later. ;-.s I  was prepaVing ������hor a soup.

The' old  woman  was  holding  her own,   if not  'getting better, and  the husband's' ini-  patience'had a savage edge to it.  Their  bedioom.was on the north side of the  , house.    All along on that side was a  deep'excavation for a factory, and the  cellar, was  full  of  stones and -water.'  .From' the  bedroom   window  the   dis-,  tance to the cellar bottom was'all of -.0  feet.. I slept on the west side, with two  rooms and two doors between us. but'  so poorly built was ,the house that if  voices   were  raised   above   a "whisper  they-'could 'be .heiml. "and  there, were  also many cracks and,crevices to peer  through.    At, 1*0 o'clock one uight I lay  wondeiing if he really meant :to_.tak!e  ,h'er life and how he would 'finally ;oc-  complish it when I -heard a ball*, suppressed scream, from  his room.,    I. got  softly out of bed "and *went to the farther door, and, looking through a crack,  I saw that the window was up and that  he stood before it with his wife in his  arms.

It was not for me to pick and choose.  I  must have a place and hold  it long  enough   to  get a  character again.     1  went with him miles and miles out on  the Holborne road, and we at last arrived at the cheaply built and  cheap  looking cottage he occupied.    It was a  place devoid of almost all conveniences  and rhad   been   selected   for  its  cheap  rent.   I found the old wife deaf, almost,  blind and palsied, and it was apparent  lhat she had uo care whatever.  She had  become childish aud petulant, and before I  had been in  ihe house half an  hour  Mr.  Dyson   whipped   her  with  a  strap for saying that she was hungry.  As he whipped her I saw him look at  her iu a way to give me a chill.    In the  course of three or four days I made up  my mind that lie regarded her with detestation und abhorrence and was hourly hoping for her death.    I  wondered  that he had not pushed her down stairs  or found other means lo briug about an  "accidental"   death,   but  the old   man  was   full  of  craft   and   cowardice.     I  soon bad evidence that he was in love  with a widow in the neighborhood, or  at least he desired to be free so that he  could marry her.   The man had no occupation   and   seldom   left  the   house.  During my. first two weeks in the place  he never, allowed  roe to see the wife  except iu his presence and found, fault  if I cooked anytliing extra for her or  expressed  my  sympathy.     He  had   a  way of whispering to himself,  and a  dozen times over I heard him say:  "I've waited for five years, but I  won't wait much longer. I'll get rid of  her and be happy."  My natural impulse on finding out  how he felt toward his wife was'to fly  the house, but I have explained how.I  was situated. And, too. I soon got the  feeling that I ought to stay to protect  with   fingers  of   steel   and   making  a  great struggle.    I heard him breathing  heavily and snarling and growling as  he tore her fingers loose, but I did not  know what he planned to do till of a  sudden he staggered to the open window and _uug her out.    She screamed  as she went lot her death, aud- in my  fright   I   echoed . the   scream.     I'   remember'the  man   rushing across 'the  room at me. of  his  dashing open the  door, of his striking me down", and then  came darkness which lasted for weeks.  He struck me with a piece of iron and  fractured  my skull.     He  then carried  my   body  down   stairs  and   bore   it  a  quarter of a mile away and  flung it  into another excavation.   "Before  taking me from the house he put on my  hat ancl cloak, aud thus it appeared to  those who'found my unconscious body  uext morning that I  had been coming  home the night before and fallen into  the pit.    As to his  wife,  he gave  the  alarm and brought the police aud made  out   that   it   was   a   case   of   suicide.

When I  mended, my memory was confused,  and it was seven months before 1 told  my siory and pui tbe police on ihe  track. Long before that Dyson had  married the widow and sailed for  America, and. 1 hough efforts were  made to find him. nothing came of  them. Never did n man deserve the  hangman's rope more, and yet. if liv-  iug today, he is free and has uo fear  of the law.  f    ,���������<;���������-*  drawbacks  to  the pay (is fair. . ,   ,v  ,������,  There   are   but   two,,    ��������� >  ,.
