Among patents  applied for have beeri schemes to secure  resurrection in case of premature burial.  Whether one of these benevolont patents  ever did save a man's life, or was ever  tried, it is hard to say. ( But invention in  this lino of apparatus goes on, and a foreigner here comes to the front in a London -paper with the following. Count  Karnice-Karnicko is the man. But let  him explain:  "I have known in my life approximate  ly 4,000   persons,    of   whom   four   were  pie of the world speak the' Swedish lang-'  uage; inclusive of 1,000,000 in the,United  States, 335,000 in Finland, 8S.000 in  Norway, 10,000 on the continent of Europe, a few thousands in Denmark, and  probably the same number in this country.

Prof. George Lincoln Goodale, of Harvard'university, says that there are nuw  about 200,000 species of plants, divided  into flowering and flowerlcss plants, and,  although nearly all of tho flowering varieties might be used for food, only about  1.000 are so used and only 800 are frequently used.

It is far easier to convince a man that  ^ he is is wrong than \ to convince a woman  ' that you are right.  When you consider the matter, it ought  to be more difficult for a woman to tell  why a man ceases to love her than to.tell  why he began.  When a man can stop to play checkers  ���������in the middle of the day he is either a  great man or bound never to be one.  Modesty is a handsome dish cover, that  , makes us fancy there must be something  ���������ery good underneath it.  ' <;  Hoard's-Liniment Relieves Neuralgia.    ,  There never was, and never will   be,   a  universal panacea, iu one remedy, for all  ."ills to which flesh is heir���������the very nature  of many curatives being such that were  tbe germs of other and differently seated  diseases rooted in the system of the  patient���������what would relieve one ill in  turn   would  aggravate   the   other.     We  ' have, however, in Quinine Wine, when  obtainable' in a sound unadulterated  ttate, a remedy for many and grevious ills.  By its gradual and judicious use, the,  frailest systems are led into convalescence  and strength, by the influence which ..Quinine exerts on Nature's own restoratives.  It relieves the drooping spirits of those  with whom a chronic state of morbid despondency and lack of interest in life is a  disease, and, by tranquilizing the nerves,v  disposes to sound and refreshing sleep-  imparts vigor to the action of the blood,  which, being stimulated, courses throughout the veins, strengthening the healthy  animal functions of jhe system, thereby  ���������making activity a necessary result,  strengthening the frame, aud giving life  tb the digestive organs, which naturally  demand  increased substance���������re-.uk,  irn-  ? roved appetite. Northrop & Lyman of  bronto, have given to the public their  ���������������������������uperior Quinine Wine at the usual rate,  ���������and, gauged by the opinion of scientists,  this wine approaches nearest perfection of  amy in the market.    All druggists sell it.  A NOVKL  IITJIUAT., CASE.  -' ���������>  In the background appears the apparatus  undisturbed by tin* occupant within. -In  the other picture .the occupant, returning  to consciousness, ' Ikis pr< .^scd the bulb,  fi'%d so twnpr ^ho be-'I a"d d'sp'aved the*  alarm flag. The box Is on a level, with  the soil outside the grave, and opens by  pressure or traction.  thrown into lechargy.   That would therefore be one person of 1,000 taken in lethargy and deel ired dead by the physicians.  Would it not; bo logical to admit,   vthat if  'these four persons owe their   life   to   the  fortunate chance of waking up  before interment, four others   at   least have come  to life too late in the grave? In assuming  the proportion to be   one' to, 1,000 .1 am  very much below the   calculations of the  " Drs.    Bruheir   and   Hartiiiann,    both of  whom havo arrived  at   tlie terriblo   conclusion of one^person in 200 being buried  alive."    Therefore, -the   Count   has   designed the "Karnice,"   which,   so  far as  one .can ascertain, is a tube leading down  to the coffin,   and   coinmunicciting  'with  an india-rubber ball there!    If the corpse  feels any symptoms of   uneasiness, it can  without difficulty squeeze the   india-rubber ball.  The   effect will be that the current of air forced up the tube will immediately set a bell ringing, and cause a red  flag to spring to a   position  of attention  By this means, to quote Count   Karnice-  Karnicke's pamphlet, many   fellow  croa-  fcures will be saved from   the   horrors   of  the grave1 in which,   through   an error of  diagnosis, they have been interred as good  as alive.  In a footnote the Count obsoiwes:  "Science fixes the length of the state   of  lothargy at fifteen days' maximum.    The  apparatus   should ' be   at   the disposal of  families at the rate   of   1    franc per day,  that   is, 15 francs per burial.    Thanks to  an arrangement with an insurance   company tlie total rate of hire   should not bo  more than 5 francs for the   whole   period  of observation."

This is all  to be changed.  Since the discovery of the famous cure  for Kidney Diseases the number of deaths  from these causes has been greatly reduced. This cure���������Dodd's Kidney Pills���������is  being used with the most wonderful success throughout Canada. It has the record of never having failed.  The movement spoken of is to form a  society to make known to victims of  Bright's Disease, Diabetes, and all other  forms of Kidney Disease, that there is a  positive, infallible cure for them in Dodd's  Kidney Pills. A meeting is to be held  shortly, when plans for working will be  formulated.  It is not to be -wondered at that Dodd's  Kidney Pills are exciting such intense interest. They are the greatest medicine on  earth beyond a doubt. They are the only  remedy that has ever cured Diabetes and  Bright's Disease. They have never once  failed to cure Rheumatism, Lumbago,  Dropsy, Heart Disease, Paralysis, Bladder  Troubles, Blood Impurities and Female  Weekness.

Originator, Builrioi, Oousevyer and Guardian AnceLof  tlie Masonic Library.  Theodore S. Parvin i% the name   of the  originator, builder, con server $,nd guard-  CHAPTER XL.  Constance Wardour, in the face of the  accusation against him, had announced  her engagement to Doctor Clifford Heath.  Then a hush fell upon the aristocratic  gossipers of W���������,and mischoivous tongues  were severely bridled. It was noi; wise to  censure too freely a man whom the heiress of Wardour had marked with her  favor.  The lawyers found their client in a  mood much more to their liking, and  O'Meara scribbled down in his book long  sentences caught from the 'lips of Clifford  Heath^who was now a strong helper,  and ap������ in suggestions for the defense.  He opened for them the sealed up pages  of his past life.  He told them in detail, all that he had  briefly stated to Constance, concerning  Frank Lamotte. and more.  Every day now they were in close consultation, and every .day1 the Wardour  carriage drove at a stated hour, first to  Mapleton, where it took up Constance,  and then to the prison, where, accompanied by her aunt, or her guardian's wife,  the heiress passed a half hour in the cell  of her lover.  She still clung to the hope that the  accumulating evidence against Frank  Lamotte might break the chain that  bound him, and open his prison doors;  but, one day, a weak after her first visit  to the prison, Mr. O'Meara dashed this  hope to atoms. -.:'������������������'.������������������ 7.7,  "We can bring no criminal accusation  against Lamotte," he said. "Theexam-  : ination proved that -John Burrill was  killed as early as > eleven o'clock that  nigth/and investigation has proven that  Lamotte remained at home all tha.t evening, ahd was heard moving about in his  room until after midnight. I'm terribly  sorry, Constance, but the case stands  just about as it did at first, and tbe odds  are ���������still, against Heath. He will have to  stand.his trial." ".-      ��������� i.  "   The'girl's heart sank like  lead, and as   .  the days passed on and no new   develop-;  ments could be evolved from a case which  began to assume a   most   gloomy aspect,  her position in   the   Lamotte   household  became'unbearable:'    '-..,- |  . Sybil had changed a very little, but for  the better. Her fits of raving were' less  frequent, and almost always to be anticipated. So, worn in body and tortured in  mind, Constance went back to Wardour,  and, save for her daily visits to the prison, was invisible to all her friends.  And she did not suffer alone. Knowing lier love for Clifford Heath and the  terrible secret she carried in her bosom,  Mrs. Lamotte lived in an anguish of suspense. Would love outweigh honor? If  the worst should come, could she trust  Constance Wardour? Could she trust her-  jself?  In those tortured hours, the same  ���������prayer went up from the heart of both  mother, and''friend���������that Sybil Lamotte  would die! .    '     ���������  While these   things   -were ..making_the  ' Over days, filled with weary waiting  and marked by few incidents and no discoveries, we pass with one glance.  Clifford Heath's trial follows close  upon his indictment. A month rolls  away, and with the first days of winter  comes the assembling of judge and jury,  and his   case is the first one called.  During the weeks that have intervened  between his arrest and this day of his  trial, Constance has been his bravest  champion and truest friend; she has  stimulated him to hope, and incited him  to courage, with loving, cheerful words,  while clinging desperately to a last remnant of her own sinking hope.  Day by day, during all this time, the  ancient gig driven by Doctor Benoit, deposited that gentleman before the doors  of Mapleton. Sybil's delirium had ended  in a slow, wearisome fever, which left  her, as the - first frosts of winter touched  the land, a white, emaciated shadow of  her former self, her reason restored, bus  her memory sadly deficient.  She had forgotten that dark phase of  her life in Which John Burrill had played  so sinister a part, and fancied herself  back in the old days when her heart was  light and her life unfettered. She had  dropped a year out of that life, but memory would come back with strength, the  doctor said; and Mrs. Lamotte dreaded  the days when that memory should bring  to her daughter's brow, a shadow never  to be lifted; into her life a ghost never  to be laid.  , Evan, too. had narrowly escaped death  at' the hands .of--.-his rum demons; . after  four weeks filled with all the horrors  attendant upon the drunkard's delirium,  he came to his "senses, hollow-cheeked,  sunken eyed, emaciated, with his breath  coming in quick, short gasps, and the  day's of his life numbered.  Brandy had devoured his vitals; late  hours and protracted.orgies had sapped  his strength; constant exposure in all  weather and at all hours had done Its  work'upon his limgs.  7 "If he'outlasts" the winter, he will die  in the spring," This was the doctor's  ultimatum.   -���������''-.���������  News from the outside world was  strictly shut out from those sick ones.  The name of John Burrill never was  breathed in their presenec, and both were  ignorant of the fact that Clifford Heath,  an old time favorite with each/was on  trial for his life.  The morning that saw Clifford Heath  quit his cell to take his place in the  felon's dock and answer to the charge of  murder, saw Sybil Lamotte lying upon  a soft divan, before a merry winter fire.  It was the first time since her illness  that she had quitted lier bed. And Evan,  too, for the first time ' in many weeks,  came with feeble, halting steps to his  sister's room, and sitting near her, scanned her wasted features with wistful in-  tentness.  "Poor sis!"    he   murmured,   stroking  her hand softly.   "We've   had   a   pretty  ian angel of the   great   masonic   library  which is now stored in its fine new   fireproof home in Cedar Rapids,   Iowa.

For a  moment I couldn't open the door, but it  seemed unworehy to leave the shock to  some one else, so I turned the knob and  ���������oftly pushed it open.

A few days before  his father left the village to go to his  new parish a neighbor said to the little  boy: " So your father is going to work in  New Bedford, is he?" The boy looked up,  wondering, and at last said: "Oh, no,  only to preach."  Small Dorothy had just been stung by  a wasp. "I wouldn't 'a' minded him  walkin' all over my,hand," she said, between her sobs, "if���������if it���������it hadn't sat  down so hard."  WIpo Out Hog: Cholera.,  The Hungarian  cabinet, through  its*  secretary  of  agriculture, is desirous of  giving all ]   i-sible support to an effective remedy against  hog cholera   in or^  der to keep out the dreaded American  competition.    It  is  stated   that  prizes  will be given to these discovering such  a method or medicine, and it is natural  that  many private  individuals,   scientific  societies and health boards are desirous of gaining both the prize and the*  distinction   and are experimenting privately aud   under government  supervision.    At  Inst  it  seems that a remedy  has  been  found, and  experiments  are  being carried on under government supervision portly.  From what I can heas  it  is  a   pr  /entive rather than a cure,,  since the imentors claim only that they  can  cure hogs  which  show   the   first-  symptoms of  swine  plague,  but  they-  must  still take food, else they seem to <  be incurable. ��������� I  believe  that the preventive consists 'in  mixing some ingredients witb the food, so as to cover the  intestines of the animals with fat, and^  prevent  germs, bacilli   or worms  from  eating  through them, thus  destroying-:  tbe vitality of the animal aud accelerating its death.  In view of tho fact that a great part  of the wealth-of the United States consists in the raising of hogs and the sale  and.export, of-'the hog products, the department of agriculture ought to pay  the fullest attention1 to these experiments and efforts.���������Exchange. '  I  Live Stock Points.  Farmers and breeders tend more and  more to the rearing of winter'pigs. A  good warm house is necessary, but one  that will last ten years can be built for  $5 or less, so that need not stand in the  way. In these times the farmer:who'���������  makes things pay must plan to. have  money coming in all the year round-  from his stock.  A sheep raiser who knows  his business takes the following means to  get  ewes to exercise themselves  sufficiently  before lambing time: He lets the breed-.  ing ewes into a wood pasture in the  morning  or   pleasant  days all winter.  Then he takes a' sack of shelled corn on  his   back  a^d  walks quickly about the  pasture  himself,   the   ewes    tumbling  over one another to get close to him and  follow him..   As he goes he takes hand-  fuls of  the  corn   and   throws it about  here and there for the animals to scramble for and eat.    They thus are made to  run about actively, and the result is fine  and vigorous lambs.  Do not  feed  eweB too much wheat  bran before lambing time. tiumrawriMjdUK

"Explain yourself, Brook," he say a  graciously, and with some inward une*i~i-  liess. "1 do not comprehend your meaning."  "If I had come to your servants and  asked to see the body of my old'churci."  begins Brooks, with a knowing loot,  drawing near Mr. Lamotte, "they would  have ordered me off, and ' shut the door  In my face; so I just asked to see you on  particular business. But if you wa������s to  ting your bell, by and by, and order one  6f your servants to take me in to look at  the corpse, I could explain to, them -\\lmt  an old friend I was, and that would  settle the curiosity business."  "Doesn't   it   striko   you    Brooks, that  p-ou don't cut much   of   a   figure, to '&y-  pear as the   friend   of   my son-in -la,������-?,"  fluestions Mr. Lamotte,looking with sume  disfavor at the ensemble before him.'  Brooks buries his chin   in   his   bosom,  , In order to survey his soiled linen; looks  down at his dingy   boots; runs   his Angers through his shock of coarse red' hair.  "I ain't much of a feller   to   look- ac;  ^ut that's because I ain't been   as   lucky  as Burrill nwas;'though   I   ain't anxious  to change places with him   now.    I'll fix  the friendship business to   suit   you. sir  and be proper1 respectful   about   it.    Say  Burrill was my   boss,    or   something   of  that sort. I shouldn't like to have certain  parties know my real business   here, and  I should like to take a look at Burrill (6n  my own account."- l .  ' ' There is a ring of sarcasm in the first  words of this -^speech,, and Mr. Lamotte  ���������reflects that he has - 'not yet learned his  errand. -    ;  "Very good, Brooks, .you   shall seethe  ,   ' "body, and manage the ' rest >as delicately  cas possible, please.    You   know we want  '_���������   no ill spoken of  the   dead.    Now,   then,  your real   business, for," consulting   his  watch, ".time presses."  "I know it doe's, sir, and I won't waste  . any words.,. You see, sir, beggin'your  pardon for mentionin' of it, Burrill' has  ' got another wife, a divorced one,.I mean,'  livin' down' at'the avenue. She works'in  Story's mill now, but she used to work-  in yours before���������"  "Yes, yes," impatiently. "Get on faster, Brooks."  ���������   "Well, you see, sir, since her   husband  T ���������rl mean since Mr.   Burrill   was   killed,  .she has been cuttin' up rough, and lettin'  out many things as you wouldn't  like to  have get all over W���������.     She ain't afraid  ���������of him no more'r(he   did .beat her monstrous,) and when she gets.to'takin' on;  she lets out tilings that would sound bad  about your son-in-law.  "If  it was a com-  "mon chap like me,   it  wouldn't  matter,  but I   thinks    to   myself,   now, Brooks,  .this   'ere   woman   who   can't   hold her  tongue will be hauled'up as a witness for  , Doctor Heath. I ain't got nothing against  Doctor Heath, but I says,   it will be awful humblin' to Mr. Lamotte's pride, and  powerful hard on his pretty daughter; so  I jest come to say that if   Nance   Burrill  could be got to go away,   quiet   like, before the   other   parlies   could   got   their  hands on her, wiiy,   it would   be  a good  thing, Mr. Lamotte."   -  Considering the tender solicitude he  feels for "Mr. Lamotte's pride," he has  given it some pretty hard knocks, but he  looks quite innocent, and incapable of  any sinister intent, and Mr. Lamotte.  after gnawing his lip viciously for a moment and favoring his vis-a-vis with a  sharp glance of suspicion, says, with sudden condensation:��������� I  "Brooks, I've always been inclined to  believe you a pretty good sort of fellow,  but really this singular disinterestedness  almost makes me buspect your motive.  Stop," as Brooks elevates his head and  suddenly faces toward the door. "Hear  me out. Brooks, don't be ashamed to  confess it. Did' the thought of a reward  stimulate you to do me this���������favor?" |  "If it's a favor, sir, you take it very j  uppish," retorts Brooks sulkily, and j  edging slowly toward the   door.    "I'm a  I  wuen ne'was drunk enough to be good { off one," he said; "he's full of Cain; and  natured; and how he beat her, and I can i, I say, what a lucky thing it is .that your  testify   to   that,   when   he. was   a little      *  " "    "  was  drunker."  '"Bjooks," says Mr. Lamotte, springing a last trap, "do you suppose you  could mar age this business of getting  away the woman, if I paid you well, and  gave you a biibe for her?"  "No, sir. I couldn't do it. I am so well  known about Mill avenue, it won't do  for a poor broke up devil to turn up  flush,all at once. I don't want nothing  to do with the affair. I've done all I can  do."  Mr. Lamotte slowly draws forth his  wallet, and slowly opens it.  "Brooks, here is twenty-five dollars.  I've not much money by me; I'll look  into this matter, and do more for you  after we 'get quiet again. Meantime, you  c;-m have the first vacancy at the factof-y;  I'll see to that at once."   '  "And I'll try and be sober, sir, and  ready-for it. Now, then, Tvc been here a  good inary minutes: you':: \ ������������������".���������'. ������:��������� lot me  take a look at the corpse, and bo Ui."  Lamotte  lucky  clothes are dark, and that Mrs.  won't.let us wear full liveries."  "Why, yes, it's very lucky, that's so;  just throw over those reins, will you.  Don't be uneasy in your mind about that  horse; I'll drive 'em safe enough; just  you tell me when to start."  Ten minutes later, all that remained  of John Burrill was borne out in its  costly casket and placed in the splendid  hearse' at the door.       , - ,  Just as he was about to cross his own  threshold, Jasper Lamottte was confronted by a young man who pressed into his  handja slip of paper, and whispered' in  his ear:���������,    " , ��������� /    ���������  "Read it at-once, sir; it's of vital  portance to you."  Stifling   an   exclamation,  'Jasper  motte unfolded   and glanced at   the  -.-of paper-.   It contained these words:-  mediately I was convinced of the' injus- ' little, but he followed her, and, standing  tice I had done you, of the utter, insanity ' before her, looked down into her face  of my  own   behavior,   but���������", blushing., with' a persistent, searching gaze.    "You  un-  La-  slip  CHAPTER   XXXVIII.  I  poor man, sir, but I ain't bad' enough to  come to you with a trumped-up story,  and if I happened to think that in case  you found things as I tell you, you might  reward me by and by with a ten-dollar  note, why, I don't think there is much  harm in that. I liked you and your  ways, and wanted to do you a. good turn,  and if I wanred to do myself.a good turn,  too, why, there's nater in that.'"  "There's nature in that, true enough.  Brooks. I wish 1 had time to hear all the  particulars of this affair."  "I don' t want to give them, sir," replies the man, hastily. "No more would  it be fair for mo to do-so.', I've got some  fair friends among- the Mill avenue folks.  I've come back.to W���������, because I couldn't get on anywhere else; and I've come  back broke. The factory folks will trust  me to a night's lodging, when their betters wouldn't. I've told you enough to  open your eyes, sir; and you can look  into the thing for yourself."  To "look into the thing" for himself,  is precisely what Jasper Lamotte is not  inclined to do; so he says, Avith growing  convictions, and increasing friendliness  of manner:���������  "At least, Brooks, you can give me an  idea of the nature of the stories this woman will tell, if brought into court?"  .."The Lord knows what she won't tell,  'sir; she blows hot, and blows cold. Ono  i minute she tells how he was a fairly  ;good husband, until he got into the hand  of some city gang, while they lived in  New York; and next she raves over all  his misdeeds, tells how he was compelled  (to quit England, or be juggled up; how  j he-forced her into divorcing him; how  ihe bragged over the strong influence he  'had over you and all your family; how  'he came to her house time and again,  after he was married to your gal; and  how he promised her 'pots of old Lamotte's money;' them's her words, sir,  'pots of old Lamotte's money, and heaps  of diamonds, for the sake   of   old times,' J  "If you please, Mr. Lamotte," said that  gentleman's coachman, appearing before  his master, lens than an hour before the  time, appointed for the moving of the  funeral cortege, and looking much confused. "If you please, ' sir, I've had a  misfortune with my hand, < sir; at least,  my wrist; it's sort of sprained, and I  most fear I can't handle the reins proper,  for the horses is mighty full of life, bein'  so little used of late."  "Well, well," broke in Mr. Lamotte.  "I suppose you can get a man to fill  your place?"  The man's countenance   brightened at,  once. ��������� ��������� ���������      ���������-  , "Oh, yes, sir; I've the very man right  on hand. A friend of mine, and a master  one with horses."   ' " .  "    -  "Let him take your place then; and see  that every thing is in proper order." ' ;  ."It's rall right,',' said the coachman,  returning to the stables and addressing a  man who leaned' against 'the loose box,  where two blooded carriage horses were  undergoing the currying process. "It's'  all right; you can drive the horses."  ','Cap'n you're a good fellow," said the  man, enthusiastically, "and here's,your  ten dollars.  It's a favor I'll never forget.  mind, for many's the day I've driven the  beauties, before Squire Mclnnis yvent up,  and we all had to go."  " That was a big failure," replied the  coachman, knowingly. "You just see that  the horses are done off all right, won't  you? I must look after the carriage."  "-It was lucky for me that I happenec  to know the, history of these horses,'  mused Jerry Belknap, for he it was who  leaned confidingly over to stroke the sleek  sides of one of the beautiful bays, , and  who'had bribed Mr. Lamotte's coachman  with a ten dollar bill. "If I drive the La-  , niottes, I'm sure of a hearing, and no  audience; at the worst', if they should  ' take in a third party, but they won't; I  can find i a way to make myself and my  wants known." And he sauntered across-  1 o the carriage . house and critically inspected the splendid landau that was being rolled out upon the gravel.'  He had returned to W��������� on foot, from  a near railway station, reaching the town  within five hours from the time he left it.  During this time, however, his personal  appearance had undergone a marked  change. He was rubicund, and moi*e  youthful of countenance; shabbily smart  in dress; excessively "horsey," and some- i  what loud   in manner. |  During his intercourse with the La-  mottes he had learned from Frank that  their blooded bays had once been the  property of a wealthy and prominent  citizen of New York, who having failed,  lifter bhe modern fashion, had given Jasper Lamotte the first bid for the valuable  span. Given thus much, the rest was  easy. Representing himself as a former  coachman of this bankrupt New Yorker,  he had told his little story. He was looking abo.ut him for a place in which to  open a "small, but neat" livery stable,  had wandered into W��������� that morning,  and having considerable cash about him,  all his savings in fact, he had not cared  to tempt robbers, by appearing too "high  toned.''  Of course he had heard at once of the  murder, and then remembered that Lamotte was the name pf the gentleman  who had bought his favorite horses from  his   former master.   -  "I never pulled reins over a span equal  to 'em," he,said, with much pathos. "I  never had tho same liking for any other  pair of critters; they was the apple of my  eye, and I'd gi\e jusb ten dollar to draw  reins over 'em once more���������even to a funeral."  His little ruse was successful; the bait  was instantly swallowed, and Jerry Belknap glanced -maliciously ;up at the closely curtained chamber windows, and .muttered, as he began to saunter slowly up  and down before the stable door:���������  "Miss'Wardour, you won't find it so  easy to outwit an old detective, even with  the odds-in your favor." '  Just as the horses were being led out  from the stable, a quiet-looking young  man, with a somewhat .rustic air,, came  into the yard, and,. approached the group  near the carriage house.  "Tlie man who will drive your carriage is a ' cursed New York - detective,  who has bribed your coachman.

Then the Lamotte carriage ' came into  view. Mr. Lamotte placed the note in-the  hand of his.son, who stood close beside  him,'and descended the steps, astern  look on his'face. . '      ,    . _  "My-friend, come down"off that box,"  he said to thc.^self-ratisiled substitute  procured him'by his coachman. .  ���������  The man on the box stared down at  him in amazement. ,      v i  "But, sir, "ihe began. ,     '   -      'I  "I want no'words from   you,   sir; you'  can't drive my   horses. < Come ,down instantly." ��������� "    '  The discomfited Belknap writhed in his  scat, and looked about him helplessly:' ,  , Before were the ��������� pall-bearers, looking  back'from'their open vehicle, and'noting  the scene; on 'the steps, and within easy  hearing distance, were gathered the small  knot, of gentlemen, . who, for courtesy's'  sake, or for, policy's sake, had gathered  to do'.honor to Mr. Lamotte, rather than  to the, poor rosewood-shrouded thing that  had never a mourner. . ��������� ~ ,      I  'He'could   not   explain;    he   could not I  mako himself known. f  "I will1 have you thrown off that box,  sir; if you hesitate ten seconds .longer,"  .exclaimed Mr. Lamotte, impatiently, at ,  the same time moving away and beckoning to the driver of the next carriage. '  . Fate was against him. and muttering  curses, "not loud but deep," Jerry Belknap began to clamber reluctantly down.  Seeing this,' Mr., Lamotte .turned toward the bearer of the mischievous note,"  who had withdrawn a few paces from the  group near the ' carriage, and beckoned  him to approach.  He came "forward, promptly.  Can-you drive, "my man?"  rosily, "I' never found the letter, and  how could I come to you and say, I have  changed my mind, without a reason.  Less than an hour ago, this note was put  iuto my handstand with it that unfortunate lost letter. This enables me to say,  Doctor Heath, I deeply regret thednsult  I offered you, and I ask you to be magnanimous, and to pardon me."  She put the note in his hand, and' he  read it, without uttering a word; stood  silent for a moment, as if to collect his  thoughts,' and then said:���������  "Miss Wardour, I, am glad that this  affair has been cleared up; when , a man  has so many dark shadows hanging over  hiift,' he ' is thankful for the , smallest  J glimpse of sunlight. It is like your generosity to come in person."  , "But you have not' said that you forgive me, Doctor Heath; fully and freely,  remember."     ft i  "Fully and freely I forgive you, then,  Miss W.trdour," smilingly, he replied.  "After all, the mistake was a natural  one: Since I have been an inmate of'this  cell, I have learned to see" myself as  others see me.    Why ' should I not   come  must understand menow," he said, firmly, "when I believed that you loved  Frank Lamotte, I said ' Then I will not  stand lo'rth and accuse the man she loves,  . for���������I love her, and she must not be un-  1 happy." '  j      A great sob rose in her throat. A wave-  of crimson swept  over   her   brow.      She  j stood before him with clasped hands and  ��������� drooping head.  " But t for   that    meddlesome . slip   of  paper,"he went on,,('I, should   not have  i been   driven   from   the   field,   and this  treachery of Lamotte's could ' never have ,  been practiced upon me.   Do you,remem-  ber a certain day when you sent for Ray  Vandyck, - and he   came   to you from my,  office? Well, on that day Francis Laniotte  ��������� told me that you were his promised wife,  and when-Ray came back, he'verifled the  statement, having received the information from your lips. Once I , hoped to  come to you and , say, after lifting for  your eyes the veil of- mystery, which I  have allowed to envelope my past: 'Constance Wardour, I love you; I want you  for my very own, my wife!'

"Tliat is, I think so;" and scarcely heedr  ing her own , movement's,' she seated  herself in the doctor's chair, and,- leaning  one arm against, -the/, table,' looked up  into his face', saying, with, a spice of her  old manner, so familiar,1 to ,him in the  past:��������� ,' __ .

It had come; the decisive moment.  She could go   away   now   with sealed,  lips, and it would end indeed.   She could  turn away from him,   leaving   happiness  behind her; taking with  her   his' happiness, too; or, she could speak, and then���������  She looked about   her;    and   the   bare  walls   and   grated   windows     gave   her  strength to ,dare much.    Had   they' stood  together-1 out under the broad bright sun-'  light;.he   as   free   as   herself,,she   could  have .turned away   mutely,   and   let her <<  life go on-as it would'.      r ., > .

"Then do me the favor to   mount that  box and drive my horses this afternoon."  "And you, sir," turning to   poor   Belknap, "get   off   my   premises ' and keep  off.".  1     And so it came about   that   Jerry Belknap,   private   detective,   found himself  once more outwitted, and, "Mr.    Smith,  the book-peddler,'' drove the carriage containing John Burrill's chief mourners.  j     "Pardon this little scene,   gentlemen,"  I said Mr. Lamotte, turning to his friends,  "but I happen to know   that   the man I  dismissed is drunk."  Half an hour later a servant tapped  softly at the door where Constance kept  watch, and said:���������  "There's a boy below, Miss Wardour,  who says he has an important message  for.you, and must deliver it in' person."  Constance went immediately down to  find our old friend George, the image  boy, in the hall below.  She smiled at sight of him, hoping to  obtain some news of Bathurst. But he  only bowed,1 as if to a queen, placed in  her hand a small, sealed , envelope; and  before she could utter a word, she was  standing alone in the crape-hung hall,  while the boy's steps could be heard ringing on the stones outside. |  Standing there, Constance hastily opened  the envelope. ��������� It contained a letter and a  scrap of paper. Glancing at the scrap,  she read these words:���������  "Miss Wardour���������Enclosed find a letter  which, for reasons which I shall explain  later, I pilfered from you on the night  of our first meeting. It has accomplished  the purpose for which I took ifc, and I  hasten to restore it.        BATHURST."  Constance turned her eye once more  upon the paper in her hand, looked closer  and exclaimed: "It is; it is Sybil's lost  letter!"  "Who comes here?" asked the disguised  Belknap, in- a low: tone,- addressing the  coachman. .   .  "More than I know," .-replied that  functionary. Then laying down a halter,  just removed from t,he head of one of the  pawing, restless horses, he turned toward  the new comer,   saying, patronizingly:���������  "Well, my-man, can we do anything  for you?"  The stranger appeared somewhat  abashed.  'I hope I.ain't in the way, gentlemen,''  he said, respectfully; "I came from Wardour with-a message for Miss Constance.  It's from the old lady, and as I see the  carriages are coming and the hearse, I  just thought I'd wait till the funeral was  gone before I intruded."  "Oh!" said the coachman, more graciously. "Well, you won't have long to  wait, then; the time's about up, and Mr.  Lamotte is never behind time." Then he  turned to Mr. Belknap.  "You must keen a  close   eye   over the  CHAPTER XXXIX.  "Dr. Heath, here is another vi si+������.*'  Clifford Heath turned slow'-*- &Wf  from the small iron-barred win..*w; ho  looked a trifle disturbed by this anncrance-  ment, for he had just been interviewed  by Mr. O'Meara, who for the first time  had; presented .Mr. Wedron, and the two  .had left him'much-to think about.  The look of annoyance,, left, his face,  however, and a stare of surprise took'its  place, when following upon'the footsteps  of the janitor, came Conskince Wardour,  not closely veiled and drooping, after the  manner of prison-visiting females in  orthodox novels; but with her fair face  unconcealed, and her graceful figure at  its proudest poise.  The haughtiness all departed from face  and bearing, howeyer, when the door  closed behind her and she found herself  alone with the man she had . falsely accused.  Misfortune had not humbled Clifford  Heath... When the first momentary look  of surprise had left his face, he stood before her as proudly erect, as icily courteous, as if he were receiving her in her  own parlor.  "Doctor Heath," began Constance, in  low. contrite tones, "some months ago I  brought a wrongful accusation against  you. I wronged you deeply; let me do  myself the justice to say that almost im-  Wardour,^but there is a stain upon it."  '' A stain!' No, ��������� sir.   Do you think that  I believe'in your guilt?"

"There is no  stain   upon-  your, hand,  Doctor Heath. - What is'this I hear about  ,you? They telL me you'will make no'defense. " i ' - ���������   -  He smiled down at her.

[  She Avas   on her feet  in an instant, all  her enforced calmness   gone, unutterable  misery in her face and voice.,  '' You know!" ��������� she cried.    '' You!    Oh I  my God, what shall I do!"  "Have no fear, Miss Wardour; have  not I said I will keep my own' counsel?"  "But, you! You! Oh, there is no reason why you should not speak; you are  not bound! You are not���������oh, what am I  saying!" She sank back into her seat,  panting and wild-eyed.  "Miss Wardour, calm yourself," he'  said, gently. "I am bound. It is my  pleasure to keep this secret. Listen. A  short time ago I received a visit from my  lawyers. They told me���������among other  things, they thought it best that I should  know���������that you knew, who did the deed,  and that you would have us "both saved,  innocent and guilty alike.

How-could he interpret  her words?, Was she trying to deceive  him?  '' Miss Wardour,'' he said, almost sternly, "do you wish me to understand that  Francis Lamotte is nothing to you?"  "Nothing to me! the vilest, the basest,  the most treacherous, the most abject of  all human creatures, that is what Frank  Lamotte is tome!" ���������.-���������"'-'  Uncontrollable scorn rang in her voice;  rising anger, top.. How dared he couple  her name with Tfchat of Frank Lamotte?  From the chaos of meaning and mysteries revolving through his mind, Clifford  Heath seized'-upon and clung to one idea,  held it.in^silence for a moment, then let  it burst forth in words. ,.

Knowing, his  guilt, I still am here in his placel"  "In his place, oh," she came toward  him with a swift, eager movement, "I  begin to see! Doctor Heath, you think  Frank Lamotte the guilty one?"  "I know it," grimly.  A look of relief came over her face.  She breathed freely.  "You believe this," she said at-last,  "and yet you are here. If you have evidence against Frank Laniotte, why do  you occupy a felon's cell? Why not put  him in your place?"  "I have told you why. It was for your  sake."

Who dares to snatch the first coy  love words from a maiden's" lips,1 and  give them to a world grown old in love  making, and appraising each tender word  by its own calloused old heart?  For the time all is forgotten, save one  fact, they love each other well.  By and by, obher thoughts ' come, fore- "  ing their way like unwelcome guests.  "Constance, "he says, after a long interval, "you have made me anything hut  indifferent to my fate.

"Yes, far  more than you do, or can, and���������you said  something about Frank Lamotte. Has.hd  sought to injure you?"  "Constance,   I   thought   you   knew,"  turning upon her a look of surprise. ���������' I  thought you knew his guilt. Who, but  Frank Lamotte, could gain access to my  office, to purloin my handkerchief and  my knife? He had a duplicate key, and  ���������I found that key in the old cellar beside  the' body of John Burrill."  The look of perplexity on her face  deepens into one of actual distress.  Could it be, that after all, Frank had  forestalled that other one?  Back upon her memory came his words,  "I can save him. if I will." Where there  is room for doubt there is room for hope.  What if another hand had anticipated  that of the paid assassin? She resolved to  cling to this hope with desperation.  If there wfts evidence so strong against  Frank Lamotte, let him take   her lover's  place. Why not?   She began to see many  things in a. new   light; she   peered   for-   .  ward,   catching   a   view of   the ."partial'"  truth, "as in a glass, darkly." One thing  was clear,   however,   they   must   act at  once! No time must.be-lost!-:--  ���������    She sat before him thinking thus,   yet  seemingly, powerless to act or speak!  ,   "Constance.

"No. Lknow.him capable of baser things than murder."  "Of baser things! My darling, what do  you mean?"  "Don't ask me   now; there is no time  to waste in .talking of him; I  am   going  straight to your'lawyers this   moment; I  am going to send them   to you, and you   .  shall tell them every thing."  "Despot!" His eyes devouring her.  "Of course! I am always that. They  will say it is time some one took you in  charge. Are you going to be dumb any  more?"  "Never! My lips are unsealed from  this hour; since you have dared to claim  and take a share in my fate, and since I  have not the courage to put so much  happiness from me."

This   style   of   self   examination   is   a  damage instead of an advantage    to their  Christ, an character.

Again; if you want   to   be qualified to  meet tho duties which   this age demands  of you, you must on the one   hand avoid  reckless   iconoclusm   and . on   the   other  hand not stick too much to things because  they are old.  The air is full ��������� of new plans,  new projects, new theories of government,  new theologies, and I   am  amazed to see  how^so many Christians wantonly novelty in order to recommend a thing to their  confidence,   and   so   they   vacillate and  swing to and   fro,    and, they are useless  and they are unhappy.

But,   on  the other hand, do not adhere to anything  merely because it is old.  I      There is not a single   enterprise of the  church or the world  'but   has some  time  been scoffed at. ' Thero   was a time when  men   derided   even    Bible   societies, and  - when a   few   young   men- met in Massachusetts and organized the first   mission-,  ary society ever organized in this country  thore   went   laughter   'and   ridicule    all  around the Christian church.    They   saia  the undertaking was   preposterous.    And  so   also   the   work   of   Jesus  Christ was'  assailed.    People   criod   out: "Who .ever  ��������� heard of such theories of ethics and   government I    Who over noticed such a   style  of prodching as Jesus has?"    Ezekiel had  talked of mysterious   wings   and wheels.  Here came a man   from   Caperuaum and  I Gennesaret, and he drew his illustrations  from the lakes, from the   sand,   from the  mountain, from the lilies, from the corn-  stal'cs    How the Pharisees scoffed 1    How  He od   derided I    And    this     Jesus   they  plu.kod by tho beard,   and   they   spat in  his lace, aud   they   called   him "this fellow."    All   tho   great enterprises in   and  out   of   tlie   church   have   at times Jbeen  scoffed at, and thero   have    been    a great  multitude   who   have   thought   that the  chariot of God's truth would fall to pieces  If it onco got out of the old rut.     And so  thore are thos-e who havo no patience with  anything   like   improvement    in    churoh  aichitecture, or with anything like good,  hearty, earnest church singing, and   they  deride any   form   of   religious discussion  which goes down walking   among   everyday men rather   than   that which makes  an    excursion on   rhetorical    stilts.     Oh,  that the   church   of   God would wake up  to an adaptability of work!   We must admit the simple fact that   the   churches of  Jesus Christ in- this day do not reach the  groat masses.    There are 50,000 people in  ���������Edinburgh    who   nover    hear the gospel.  There are   1,000,000    people    in    London  who never hear   tho   gospel.     The    great  majority of tlie inhabitants of   this   capital come not under the    immediato   ministration of Christ's truth, and the church  of Gori in this   day,    Instead    of    being a  placo full of living   epistles,    known   and  read of all men, is more like a doad letter  posfc-oiiico.  Work to be Done.  "But," say tho people, "the world ls  going to be converted; you must be patient; the kingdoms Of this world are to  become the kingdoms of Christ." Never,  unless the church of Jesus Christ puts on  more speed and energy. Instead of the  church converting the world, the world  is converting tho church. Here is a great  fortress. How shall it bo taken? An army  comes and sits around about it. cuts off  the.supplies and Says, "Now. we will just  wait until from exhaustion and starvation they will have to give up."

I   remark   again,    that   in order to be  qualified to meet your duty   in   this particular age you want unbounded  faith in  the triumph of   the   truth   and the overthrow of wickedness. How dare the Christian church ever get   discouraged?   Have  we not Che Lord Almighty   on   our side?  How long   did   it   take  hosts of Sennacherib   or  shake'down Jericho?    How   long   will it  take God,   when   he   once   arises   in his  strength, to   overthrow   all   the forces of  Iniquity?    Between   this    time   and that  there may be long   seasons   of   darkness,  and the chariot   wheels ��������� of   God's gospel  may seem to drag heavily, but here is the  promise and yonder   is   the   throne,   and  when   omniscience   has   lost its eyesight  and omnipotence falls buck impotent and  Jehovah is driven from his   throne,   then  the church of Jesus   Christ  can afford to  be despondent, but never until  then.  Despots may plan and armies may march  and the   congresses   of   the nations may'  seem to think they aro   adjusting  all tho  affairs of the world, but tho mighty men  of the earth   are   only   the   dust   of   the  chariot wheels of Gods providence.

He took   part'  in    the historic  battles of  Bull's Run,   Fredericksburg,   Culpepper,  etc., and at one time rode eighty miles at  a 'stretch, carrying dispatches through the  'enemy's   lines.*" On   another occasion he  wui on ftorseback���������for four clays   and   five  nights, and it is httle'v wonder that such  hardships left him,'as they did thousands  'of others, >with   a   wrecked constitution.  While in the   army, as   a   result oi, poor  food and often worse water, - he ^ was attacked,with   diarrhoea,, which  "assumed^  a clironic   form.    This ,of course greatly,  weakened him, and he fell   an   easy prey (  to the pains' and terrors ���������of   rheumatism..  Tova correspondent of the Baiiner'he said:  "I never��������� expected   to   be 'any better In  this world, as I hald tried' scores of medi-*  cines which brought me no-relief   at all.  Sometimes for   weeks   at   a time I could'  not lie down or sleep, vand could  eat but  little.

I would often ieel sick at my stomach, at which   times   food < would    prove  loathsome to me.    My   kidneys also troubled me greatly and my  nervous   system  seemed completely shattered.  Tongue can  scarcely tell how much I endured  during  those long and weary years.  About a year  ago I was advised'to   try   Dr.  'Williams'  God to slay the .Pink Pills, and it was a grand day for me  burn   Sodom or   that I began their use.    After I had used  a few boxes my pains had decreased ' and  I was considerably.hotter.  Later, through  a continued use of   the pills.il could eat,  sleep and felt as   able   to work   as I had  done twenty years ago.    I   now  feel well  and strong and if any of my old comrades  see this and are   afflicted   I   would   urge  them to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."

The City of Naniimo failed to call last  Fridty vn the sou.th bound trip. The breeze  blowing ia the gulf probably accounts for it  and of course no mail from Cumberland.

Let  *ne  govern-  ment lay a cable to Hornby Island: also con  nected'with Denman Island. It will be of  incalculable value to the islanders in case of  wrecks, accidents, etc., and the' cost will  certainly be small as wire is cheap now,  and the entire length to be covered does not  exceed thirteen miles.
