"Auntie, it is timo you told me more  ubout my mother. You have evaded, my  step-father has forbitlaon, my questioning, but if I am ever to know aught- of  my dead mother's history, I intend ' to  hear it from your lips to-day."  Surprise for a time held the old woman  speechless; a look of sorrow and affection  drove the querulousness out of her face  and voice.  "What ails you, child?" she said,  wouderingly. "Do you want to make  .Mr. Arthur hate me more, and keep you  from me entirely? Don't you know,  dearie, how lie swore that the clay I told  you these things, he would forbid you to  visit me; and At you disobeyed, take  you away where I could not even hear* of  ' yon?',' . ��������� :  Tears were in Hagar's eyes,, and she  held out her wrinkled hands imploring-  ��������� ly. "Don't tease your old nurse, dearie;  don't. I can't tell you these things novf,  , and they could not make you any happier, child. Wait a little; the time will  come���������"  "So will old age,   auntie;   and   death';  and all   the knowledge   wo   want, I suppose, whan it is too late to make it profit-  ���������   able.    Well, auntie, I will tell you some-  , thing in exchange for my mother's story,  .and to make it easier for you to relate it.  But first, will you   answer   a   few questions?���������wait,  <   know   what   you   would  say," as the old woman made a deprecating   movement,    and   essayed to   speak.  . "Hear me, now."  Hagar looked at the   girl   earnestly for  a moment, and then said, quietly:  "Goon, then, dearie."  "First,"     pursued     Madeline;     "my  father dislikes me very much ; is this the  truth?"-   Hacar nodded assent.  "He dislikes you because you were always good to me. " Here she paused, and  Hagar again nodded.  "Because you were attached to my  ���������mother?" Again she paused, and again  the old woman bowed assent.  ' "Arid because"���������the girl fixed tho eyes  \ of the old nurse with her own���������"because  you were too familiar with my mother's  past, and his, and knew too well the  secrefc'of his hatred of mo!",  Hagar sat silent and motionless, but  Madeline, who had read her answer in  the troubled face, continued "Very  good. I knew all this before, and I'll  tell you what else I ^know. I know why  Mr. John Arthur hates me."  Hagar opened her month and shut it  again quickly.  "He hates me," pursued Madeline, "because my mother left him her fortune so  tied'iup that he can only use it; never  dispose of it. And at his death it reverts to me."  Hagar still looked her amazement, and  Madeline condensed the remainder of her  force into one telling shot.  If  I  would be kind   enough to die   he  would consider it a great favor.    But  as  I evidently intend-to livelong, he desires  of course,    to see me   happy.    Therefore,  he has bargained me in marriage to Amos  .Adams for tho   splendid consideration of  --a few thousand dollars, and the   promise  -of a few thousand more if I  die young?"  Still the   bewildered look   rested   upon  -the old woman's face and  still she gazed  .at   the young girl before   her.    Suddenly  :sho   leaned   forward and taking the   fair  Thead   between   two     trembling    hands,  gazed long at her.    As if satisliedat last  with her scrutiny, she drew a deep, sighing breath, and leaned back in her chair.  "It's true," groaned Hagar;   "it's   too  true!   Sho has found it  out, and my little girl has gone away, has gone away;���������  my Baby Madeline is  become a   woman,  There was nover a coward in all the race,  and a Payne never forgave !   It has come  ������t   last,"   sho wailed,    "and now,   wliat  will sho do?"  Madeline lost not a look   nor tone   and  when   the old woman  ceased her rocking  and moaning, sho suggested, with a half  : smile:       .    .       . '  ''Hadn't I better marry old Adam,  auntie, worry them both into untimely  graves, and be a rich young widow?"  . Hagar ..gazed at lier in silonce. And  Madeline, taking her hand in her own,  said: "Shall I tell you how I discovered  all this, auntie, dear?"  "Yes, child go on." And she bent  upon the girl a look of attention.  Madeline drew close to her side, and  briefly related-what had transpired while  she sat in her favorite tree, not stating,  by tho by, how it occurred that she was  in tho grovo at that very opportune time.  Hagar's indignation was unbounded,  but sho continued to gaze at Madeline in  a strange, half fearful, half wondering,  wholly expectant way, that the girl  could not .interpret.  And now, Aunt Hagar," pursued  Madeline, seriously, "I want to understand this matter more fully, and I wlii  not say a word-of'my plans until you  have, told me what I came to hear. I  shall not como to you again for fiis-information ;. it is surely my rigl.t, and  time now is precious."  Madeline half rose, seeing that her  nurscv still rocked dismally and looked  Irresolute. "1 can bide my time, .and  fight my battles alono, if need be," she  continued, coldly. "I won't trouble you  again, nurse," turning as if to go.  "Stop, child!" cried Hagar "let an  old woman think. I'll tell you all I can;  all 1 know. Don't turn away from your  old nurso, dearie; her only thought is for  your good. Yes; you mu;t not be left  in Ase' dark now���������sis down, child; sit  dow n."  .nxaaeiine resumed her seat, and old  Hagar, after another season of moaning  aud rocking, proceeded ro relate, with  many wanderings from the point, and  many interpolations and opinions of hor  own, tho brief, sad story of Mrs. Arthur's  ���������married life and early death. Bereft  of Hagar's ornamental extras, it was as  follows:  Madeline   Harcourt, an orphan and the  adopted daughter of   a Avealthy   bachelor  uncle,,  had incurred his   displeasure   by  loving   and   marrying     Lionel     Payne,  handsome, brave to a fault with no other  wealth than his keen  intellect his unsullied   honor and his loving   manly  heart.  Lionel  ..Payne   had entered   upon   the  study 'of   law, but circumstances   throw  in   his. way certain mysteries   that   had  long been puzzling tho heads of the   foremost   detectives,1 and   the   young'    law  student discovered in himself not   only a  riiarked taste toy' the study of   mysteries,  but a talent  that was  remarkable.      So  he,' gave   up his law studies to uccoice  a  detective.,  -He   rose   rapidly   in his   new  profession, giving all   the strength of his  splendid.ability to the study   of intricate  and   difficult   cases, and became   known  among   detectives,   and  droaded  among  criminals, as "Payne, the Expert."  He had lived two happy years with Ins  young wife, ��������� and jbeen . six months tho  proud father of baby Madeline, when he  fell a victim to his dangerous pursuit}  shot dead by a bullet from the hand of a  fleeing assassin.  John Arthur had been a fellow law  stu'danf with Lionel Payne, and he had  followed-' 'the career of the young expert  with curious interest, being, as much as  was possible to his selfish nature, a friend  and admirer of the rising youngdeteo-  tive. And Lionel Payne, open and manly himself, and seeing no trace of tha  serpent in the seeming disinterestedness  of Arthur, introduced him proudly into  his happy home. Arthur was struck by  the beauty of the young wife, and became a frequent and welcome visitor.  Ono   day   thore came to the office   where  John Arthur earned his broad reluctantly, ' as a salaried clerk, tho uncle of  Madeline Payne. He had come .to make  a will, in which he left all his possessions to his beloved niece. Madelino,-anu  her heirs forever after. This.was several  months before . the suddon deatli oi  Lionel Payne.    .  " Ten months after she became a widow,  Madeline's uncle died. Left alone with  her little child, and with no resources  but her own efforts, Madeline's mother  struggled on, ever the object of the kind  watchfulness and unobtrusive care of  John Arthur, who professed to adoro the  child for the sake of the father, aud  through the baby Madeline,' gradually  won his way in the; mother's esteem. Mrs.  Payne was deeply grateful, and. her  mother's heart was touched by the devotion of Arthur vto her little child. So it  came about that, after a time, she gave  him her hand," and all of her heart that  was not buried with Lionel, A little  later she learned that her uncle was  dead, and she became mistress of a handsome fortune.  Soon   came   the   knowledge   that   her  husband's   heart   was not all gold,    and  the " suspicion, as   we'll, that her   uncle's  will   and :its purport had long   been   nc  secret to him.    But partly from force   of  habit and partly because he   was"hot yot  quite   hardened John Arthur kept up Mf  farce   of   affection   for   the   child.    And  while his wife awoke   to  a knowledge of  many   of  his shorr-comings, she   always  believed   in   his lovo for her   little   ono.  The two elements that   were   strongest  in   the   nature   of   John    Arthur   were  selfishness   and   pride.    From his'youth  up   his   idols   had   been gold   and   self.  Born into tho world minus that  "golden  spoon" for   which   ho   sighed   in youth,  and schemed in lator years,    he   had ever  felt   rowards   said   world   a   half-iledgeU  enmity.    As   he reached the  age of manhood,    his   young    sister    was   formally  adopted by the only surviving relatives ol  the two; and becoming   in ,clue course ot  time 'and naturo.solo' possessor of   a .very  nice, little  fortune, afterwards   held.-her  head very   high.    Later,   in. consequence  of   some    little     indiscretions      of    her  brother at the time   when he was'scs-frot!  iu.   the world���������rho  result of   the   popular  superstition held by Mm that "the world  owed   him   a'living"���������she  held    herself  aloof from and ignored   him completely.  By degrees,   Mrs. Arthur's eyes became  opened to tlie true   character of   the man  she had married.   ��������� Moments   she had   oi  doubling   and   then   of fearing that   she  wronged' him   too deeply, for her nature  was' a jus! one.    It   was in ono 'of   those  lat'tor moods that she   made  her will,  before   sho   had   become   aware   tiiat   oven  las   love   for hor   little   girl   was only   a  well   acted   lie;    believing   her secure of  love and care   during   his   life, she made  sure   that,   as   his    death,    hor    darling  should  bo   supplied with all that   monoy  could give.    Sho   had   long    beeu in .the  fatal   toils   of that droad destroyei1, heart  disease,-   and   suddenly,   beforo. she   had  found opprotunity for securing  her little  daughter further, as'she liad since begun  to realize it   was   needful   to do, she was  seizad with   a paroxysm that snapped the  frail cord of life.  A short timo. before hor death, sho had  given into the keeping of old Hagar, a  package, to be delivered to little Madeline  when she should become a woman, and  with the express wish that, should John  Arthur prove a kind guardian meanwhile,  she would burn the journal it contained,  unread.  ���������vi?fk*F  To������rit,Him Down Smartly.

Now, this toy, which tho  dirty urchin teased, shook about and poked  at in a wired box, was a live rat. ' The  parents, through economy ' no doubt, had  taken this plaything from life itself.

Then Thad Stevens Showed How He Valued Martin's Reputation at Faro.    *  There was nothing of "the stocks and  blackboards of convention" in Thad Stevens. He was a man soul fed on strong  meat. He believed that the king must, be  amused���������and he ' was . the " king, writes  James M. Scovol in Lippincott's. His fa-,  vprite amusement was after, supper at his  own modest mansion to the east of the  capital to spend the evening at Hall &  Pemberton's faro bank on Pennsylvania,  avenue, Washington. Here was common  ground, where the warring, jarring, factions north and south could meet and over  canvasback ami Veuve Clicquot champagne woo unmolested the goddess of fortune. There were no clubs in the Washington ��������� of 1S5G-C0 except the gaming  houses. Stevens was never a heavy player,  although I have seen him win $1,400 on a  $20 goldpiece as his only stake.  On one occasion he had been playing in  what he called hard'luck.. 'Mi'.'Martin  from Columbus, O., the reading clerk of  the house, always at his elbow and ready  for a "sleeper" or a stake, repeatedly urged  Stevens "to put stack on the ace," which  had lost three times. "I will stake my  reputation," said Martin, "that the ace  wins."  With a doubting glance at Martin Stevens shoved a stack of blue chips, worth  $50, over to the ace, playing it to win, on  Martin's judgment. The ace lost. Without the semblance of a smile the old statesman said, "Martin, you owe me a quarter." This was the value he put on Martin's "reputation."  No man ever pursued an adversary in  debate, more remorselessly than Stevens  did, but there was no malice in him, and  he was a favorite on both sides of the house.  "Sunset" Cox was his devoted friend,  and in a playful mood during an all night  session, while the member from Pennsylvania dozed in his seat, moved tho speaker that '' the sergeant-at-arms supply Mr.  Stevens with ivory chips enough to last  till ix.rjw\v"-" ���������  ��������� Iiittle   Experiment   of  Interest   Which  Almost Any One Can Perform.

Why,  I can do things with the common materials of everyday life which really seem to  be more magical, to the uninitiated than  any-of tho wonder's performed by magicians on tho public stage. , ,    '  "Now, there arc those curious little bubbles of glass known variously as .'Prince  Rupert's drops' and as 'Dutch tears.' Apparently they aro merely little globules of  glass with elongated tails, made lay heating a small glass rod in a Maine and allowing the molten drops to fall into water.  After they have cooled you may pound the  thick part with a hammer or mallet, yet  you cannot break them. On tho other  hand, if you break a littlo piece off their  tails or touch any part of them with a  quartz crystal, they will disappear into the  surrounding atmosphere quicker than  snow will melt on a hot fire. To the person who does not know the reason tho  performance is most astonishing.  "And yet it is all very simple. It is duo  to what is known as surface cohesion.  Glass when heated to a molten state has  naturally reached a very high temperature,  and when the drops of melted glass are allowed to fall into the cold water tho sudden change produces stress all over tho  surface of the drop which is really terrific.  This stress, however, must be considered  as a whole. It is very strong when taken  all together, but it is exactly as though a  piece'7of ���������'very thin rubber was stretched  over the surface of the glass: If you punctured the rubber, its haste to resume its  normal condition would pull it off Tthe  glass. .-.  "So when you break off the tail of the  drOp or cut through tho film of very hard  glass with a crystal its endeavor suddenly  to resume its normal condition results in  its own destruction, and it breaks up into  particles which are really finer than the  finest sand. It seems like a'wonderful performance, but it is no more wonderful  than many another which any^youngster  could perform if he would study ovoh. the  simplest forms of chemicial action  Chicago Drug  Stores  In   the Slams Do a  Thriving Business In It.  ���������Down in the "levee" district' the drug  stores sell luck ��������� in the same manner and  quantities they do quinine and pills, and  it is just as distinctive a commodity'with  them. Traffic in this is confined entirely'  to the negroes, whose superstition, is as  well marked as the color of the sable race.  ','Gimmo two bits' w.uf Sally White's  luck," asked a Poncganibian of a drug  clerk on South Ol^-k street the other day.  ��������� The clerk proceeded to pour shellac, saltpeter, sulphur and other ingredients on to  tlie pan of the scales until tho five ounce  weight swtr <j at a balance. The purchaser  pocketed i^e small mixture of powders  an " Jr'partcd.  ��������� Tho druggist explained:    v ��������� '  "Wc  sell   luck   all  tho  tiinc,, and -that  ���������.Ana who' just left is one of our best customers." You notice ho called.for the Sally  White brand. .That seems to bo tho most'  popular kind of luck. It is called Rally  White after a character in the levee by ihat.  name. She is well known and is proverbially lucky. It was she who hit upon tho  prescription that bears her name. At first  she bought the" ingredients , and did her  OT/n mixing. In an unguarded moment,  sho revealed the secret to a friend one day,  however, and chc latter came to us. and we  ' made up the prescription. It brought the  desired luck to tho woman. Others found  it out, and the Sally White -brand became  a permanency.  "There'is also tho Sally White mixed -  luck, which follows 'the other a close second in. popularity. It is a combination,  asafcetida, camphor, Spanish fly, sulphur,  saltpeter aud other powrders. This sells for"  tho same as tho straight Sally White.  Then thero is a common luck that is mado  of tho same powders in various combinations. This is considered by some as efficacious as the Sally White. It'is a bit  cheaper.. Another 'sort of luck is madeby  tho combination of oils, such as verbena,  pennyroyal, tansy, cedar, cloves and white  rum. This has no particular name. It is  simply luck., Tho negroes alwaysfspocify  what kind is desired.  "In order to possess  themselves of the  luck sought  the  powder compounds  aro  Jjurncd somewhat liko incense, in a closo   ;  room, tho fumes being inhaled by the luck  seeker. Tho oil compounds aro mixed with  the water in which tho luck coaxer washes  him or herself; also in tho water which is  used  to  scrtib - floors. \ Sometimes   it   is  sprinkled on the floor Qt the allurer's hab- ���������  itation. All of this is done with tho great- '  est caro' and secrecy, sometimes once a  week and sometimes at longer or shorter  periods, as luck needs replenishing." '  Women seem to bo better customers for'  the luck -commodity than tho men, for  they consume more.. Strange to relate,  neither buy tho article on' Fridays or. on  the 13th of the month. Luck 'may bo  bought for flvo cents-an ounce. Not infrequently $1 worth is purchased at one  time. From this ' superstition the drug  stores in tho levee district, reap a harvest  every "year. \  Pepper In Olden Times.  Dr. Adolph Miller of Philadelphia,  president of tho Pennsylvania Mycological  club, in a dissertation on the pepper plant,  says that during tho middle ages in Europe pepper was the most esteemed and  important of all the spices. Genoa, Venice  and other commercial cities of central Europe were indebted to their traffic in pepper for a large part of their wealth. Its  importance as a means of promoting commercial activity and civilization - during  the middle ages can hardly be overrated.  Tribute was levied in pepper, and donations were made in this spice, which was  frequently also used as a medium of exchange in place of money. When the imperial city of Rome was besieged by Alaric,  the king of the Goths, in 408 A. D., the  ransom demanded included 5,000 pounds  of gold, 30,00.0 pounds of silver and 3,000  pounds of pepper, illustrating the importance of this spico at that time.  HoodeU  Snakes.    - ���������   Dr. Stradling throws somo interesting  light on tho hooded snake: "The hoods of  snakes were unquestionably intended by  nature to act as weapons of intimidation,  for when suddenly opened, as they are  during the excitement of a contest, theso  ' givo their owners an apparent and formidable enlargement. But tho hoods which  havo been so useful at some period in  snako history havo now become so en1  larged as to tend toward tho extinction of  their owners, just* as tho overdevelopment  in tho tusks of prehistoric animals led  straight to their destruction.  "During a fight the hooded snake in the  act of striking his foe suffers from tbo out-.,  stretched and weighty hood���������he overbalances himself and topples forward. Hi.s  assailant, tho mongoose and some birds  specially, seizes him when prostrate, and  ripping up tho back of tho neck speedily  dispatches him."  He tells an amusing story of a cobra  putting hjs head into-a biscuit tin in  search of a, mouse regaling itself on macaroons. The rough sides of tho tin irritated  the cobra so that he '-in voluntarily'-dilated  his hood and was consequently unable to  remove his head from his tin prison.  Found next morning in this awkward  predicament, he was safely and "quickly  dispatched.���������Ludgate. ,  The Longevity of Canned Food.  It is only fair to state that tinned meat  still holds the record for longevity.

Those tins had an adventurous  career. In 1S24 they were wrecked in tho  good ship Fury and cast ashore w'ith other  stores on the beach at Prince's inlet.  7 They wore found by Sir John Ross eight  years afterward iii a state of perfect preservation, having passed through alarming  variations of temperature annually���������from  92 degrees below zero to SO degrees above  ���������and withstood the attacks of savage  beasts, perhaps of savage men. For 16  years more they lay there broiled and frozen alternately; then her majesty's ship Investigator came upon tho scene, and still  tho contents were in good condition. For  nearly a quarter of a century they liad  withstood the climatic rigors and,'as was  but natural, somo of them were brought  home again, where they lived on in honored old age till they were brought under  tho notice of Dr. Letheby.���������Good Words.

Mr. Neill McFadyen reached horyie  from Dawson Sunday evening, looking  none the worse for his long stay in the  frozen land of the Klondike.
