CRUCIFIXION  OF CHRIST.
Death on tne  Cross Waa a Most Torribl*
Form of Torture.
"Crucifixion was a terrible death,",
writes the Rov. Ainory H. Bradford, D.
, I>., in The Ladies' Home Journal. "It
was reserved for offendors of a servile
class and never used for a Roman citizen.
Ihe hands and feet of tho victim were
nailed to tho wood, and a kind of rudo
seat was provided���just enough to prevent
the weight of the body from tearing
through the flesh. Tho exact spot whore
Jesus was crucified cannot now be identified. Golgotha was probably some skull
shaped hill .'outside the city wall.'   Thith-
0 er a strango procession wended its way���
the condemned with their crosses on their
backs, the hard hearted rabblo making fun
of- them as they passed. Tho strength of
Jesus  failed  beforo  tho  destination  was
��� xeacbod, and another was compelled to
carry the cross for him. Tho crucifixion,
likoull others, was cruel and barbarous
in the oxtrcnio. The executioners wero
[Roman soldiers, but a host of Jews feast-
' cd their eyes on tho hideous sight.
"Such agony was no protection against
tho gibes of'the crowd. With but ono of
his disciples in sight, and only two or
threo friendly women near���ono of them
his mother���Jesus passed the last hours of
��� his earthly lifo. Those who suffered by
crucifixion sometimes lingered throe or
four days���Jesus lived about"five hours.
While hanging on the cross ho spoko soven
times.    Soon 'after tho .cross was  raised,
' looking over the cdafse and 'brutal" soldiery
and the mistaken fanatics who had hounded him to that hour, he uttered a prayer,
which has probably made a deeper impression on the world than any other single
/ prayer o.vor offered���'Father, forgive thorn,
' fortthey know not what they do.' "

A FRIEND'S ADVICE.
And what it led to.
i^gfMOHSOOHl
inonsoon.
am-franonTEA]
It is aot a common occurence that a
friendly word should be the means of -jiving- nearly forty years of happiness and
health to the person heeding the advice it
carried. This was the case with Mary
Liugard. At twenty-five she was dragging-
out her days in misery. At sixty-one she
find? herself so active and strong she can
do work (.hat-would shame many a younger
woman, and looks back on thirty--5ix
happy, healthful years of industry. But
let her tell her story:
"Thirty-six years ago I had great trouble
with my liver.   The doctors allowed that,
there -were tumors growing on it, aud they
blistered my side in au effort to give rae,
relief.     I was at that  time earning my'
living as a tailoress, but  for  five years!
between  the  pain  in   ray side   and   the
blisters I was   in - constant , misery,  and
work was a drag to me, with" no prospect
of; relief; fortunately for mc, however, a
friend advised me to,take Dr. Ayer's Sar-
saparilla, and finally persuaded me to lake
a regular course of "it.   When I first commenced taking the Sarsaparilla my side
was so painful that I could not fasten iny
dress, and for a time'I did not get any
relief, but my friend advised me to per-
scvere^ and relief was sure to come, and
come it did.     This  happened, as I say,
thirty-six years ago.    My liver has never
troubled rae since, and during these years
I have passed through the most critical
period of a woman's life -without any par
ticular trouble,  and to-day,  at sixtyrone
years of age,-I am active and strong, and
' able, to do a day's work that" would upset
many a younger woman. Ever since my
recovery I have taken a couple of bottles
of Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla each spring, and
am quite satisfied that I owe my good
health to this treatment. I give this testimonial purely in the hope that it may
meet the eye- of some poor sufferer."���
M...R.Y I<ikga��.d, Woodstock, Ont.'
Dr. Ayerls Sarsaparilla has won its way
to every corner of tfc-e world by the praise
of its friends ; those who have tried it and
who know they were cured by the use of
the remedy.    There i-5 nothing so strong
as this personal te&tiniony.   Jt throws'all
theories,and   faucses   to   the winds  and
stands solidly   upon the rock of experience   challenging  cverv skeptic with   a
positive,-i   know."    Ayer's   Sarsaparilla
with its purifying- a��jd vitalizing action on
the blood is  a radical  remedy  for every
form cf disease that begins in tainted or
impure    blood.     Kcnce    tumors,    iores,
ulcc^rrj, boils, eruptions and   similar dis-
eas.es   yield   promptly to this  medicine.
Some cases are more -stubborn than others,
but persistence with Dr. Ayer's Sarsapa-
lilla usually  results in a complete cure.
Mary "Cingard  began  with a bottle,'and
went on to a course of Dr. Ayer's Sarsaparilla.   When she was cured she realized ,
that a medicine that could cure disease
could also prevent it.   So she took a couple
of bottles each spring and kept in perfect
health.    There are thousands of similar ���
cases   on   record.     Some   of    these   are
gathered into Dr. Ayer's Curebook, a little
book of loo pages which is sent free by the
J. C. Ayer Co., Lowell. Mass.   Write for it.

Dear Sirs :���lean conscientiously recommend Paine's Celery ���'Compound to
���alrw.ho--hnlay-.be suffering from dyspepsia
.and liver -trouble. For years, *'while
living iii Black Brook, I suffered from a
-.complication of-troubles, and was so bad
with dyspepsia that' I could not couch,a
morsel  of food,      I found  in difficult to
������.sleep, and what lit.tlw I did;get was often
broken   with   horrid    dreams.     Intense
sufferings from liver  complaint added to
my load"of . agony : I  also had dizziness,
pains in the back, and was pale, haggard
and despondent. .....   ,, ;
I kept doctoring and dosing without
deriving the"slightent benefit, and finally
...gave up all hope of getting weli. One
day my daughter, who had read of a
wonderful cure  by  Paine's  Celery Corn-
��� pound, begged me to try one bottle of the
medicine.. "I told her it was no use. to
throw away, .money, .but she pleaded so
hard that to please her I bought a bottle,
and before it. was ur-ed up I felt better.
Encouraged so much .I continued with the
medicine and improved every day.
I am now cured, thank.-; to Paino's
Celery Compound. You c;.nnob wonder
that f consider i'uine's Celeiyy Compound
the greatest medical discovery in the
world. I urge all who are suffering to
try this grand medicine . and test its
virtuei.        Your* very .tn.-lv.

GEORGE BATHBORNIQ.  V>  n.  Mi  v J  I  That wormy   appears to have a   spirit  of unrest.   Ho  bobs   his head out of the  window a dozen times,    scans   the   lamp  posts as they pass, and in   various   ways  manifests something more than curiosity.  ���������    At/.length, they   pull'up,   the driver  ���������      drops'tho two leather portmanteaus .from  -*  above and is presently at   the1 door. - His  ^ game is to  receive   his   pay,   mount his  <   vehicle, and dash away before his victims  discover how he has   left   them stranded  at the wrong station.  This is a very nice idea, but Doctor  Jack immediately knocks it on the head.  "Remain,in the vehicle, friends, whilo  I run und'g'po about the train. If we are  left wo may have to go to the Palace  Hotel."  The driver grits his teeth at having his  ;t  'plans'foilcd, 'but-dares say   nothing.   He  would give a   good   deal   to   be   able to  crawl out of   sight   just then,   dreading  Jack's return  Doctor Jack is gone jiist three minutes,  and then he appears in v.iew, rushing  toward them with furious strides, his  face dark, his manner alarming, at least  in the eyes of the ' guilty ' Jehu, who  trembles in his boots. '      ,  ' Straight up to him Jack steps and demands, in a low but terrible voice, what  he means by taking them to tho wrong  depot.   ' <~       , '  ,      , -.  f/ The ' fellow plays' his part   fairly wellN  , (  but it takes the quick eye of Doctor Jack"'  to read between,the,lines. *  ''You are telling me what   is   false.

'Something about his manner assures  the driver that there ds but one course for  him to pursue, t Doctor Jack has���������a way  about him of convincing men with.whom  ' ho has dealings.that it will be3 to their  interest to obey liis will.     ' j.   v  So tho fellow, falters , put   a_ half-way  confession, endeavoring to screen himself,.  as woll as ho can, at the expense of truth.  7 Jack1 brings him to a halt in the midst  of his effort.,  Ho has no time to���������spare.    t  '' Take hold here���������jup with it���������now the  other/, Off for,tho union Pacific station,  man." * .i  ,     ;    . ,      , r  Ho makes no   threats,    but   his   voice  'and manner are < both   terrible,    and the  . ' ' driver fears he has gotten   himself into a  serious mess.   An   idea   strikes him that  may save his neck. ~ " >  -    Using the .whip  vigorously,    he   sends  ,   "- his team,.and,vehjclo "across   the   city to  > V the mail) station about, as   speedily ���������as a'  ' hack has" ever;been -known   to;��������� travel in'  San Francisco.^.  Hills are surmounted on  the" jump. l   Johu   seems   determined to  remedy his mistake, if   such   it could be  called. Secretly,   lib knows full1, wellr the  sly rascal, that it is .already, too- late' f(  The manner in which they are dragged  c    through   the' streets* of the Golden City  prevents   any   conversation   inside     the  coach.  At any moment the vehicle *-is apt to  give a lurch thatv may send them forward. }Tack has thrown that strong left  arm of his'around ������.vis, while ho braces  himself to meet any crisis. Unless there  comes an upset, all will be well.  This rocking, dragging, reckless movement is kept i up for some little time,  when suddenly the vehicle draws up near  the curb. "Jack looks out, and sees by the  many lights that they have arrived at  their destination."  He feels tor the handle of the door, but  after folding it'is baffled a little. Still  tho driver does not put in an appearance  to help him. At last Jack biicceeds, and  leaps out. j.  The secret of the driver's failure to  come to his assistance is explained. Jehu  is not on the'box, nor can he be seen.  Evidently the man's fears have gotten  the better of his valor. As soon as he  ��������� brought his vehicle to a stop, he dropped  down and deserted it.  >a This does not .bother Jack. He is more  vitally concerned regarding a train just  now.-, -- >  So he v whips *rthe   two   small 1 leather  trunks from theboot .of the vehicle with  as muph ease as though they were hand-  -   bags.*'f    -'>  .

"You -will be on board, Doctor Jack,  long before'it crosses the Rockies, I give  you my word; but; it may cost you half  a thousand dollars."      -1  "A mere bagatelle, sir.

The dispatcher will mak������i out your  schedule and give it to the conductor.  Thus you will know just at what ' point  syou can overtake the eastern flyer."  This is very soothing to ' Doctor Jpck,  who begins to see tho wrinkles being  smoothed out of tho rough road in front.  He is soon deoply engaged in conversation with tho ' gentleman who comes-up.  Every one seems to lake a decided interest in hnii wlien"* they hear who he is.  Sometimes it pays to be famous.  i The arrangements are spscdily made,  and our little party feel their spirits rise  as they^ contemplate - a solution of tho,  problem that has so recently overshadowed them. (  What does* an hour count, when with  a special they can,, rush "over tlie rails  like lightning. It- is astonishing^ what  money can be made to do in,- this world  ���������at'any rate,-'-it. lubricates the wheels  and makes traveling a pleasure.  Doctor   Jack   consults   his   watch, as  -,they arise from the lunch which   has>n-  gaged their attention in   the   restaurant,  more to pass the time^away than because  they were hungry.'1  "The hour is up," he remabks.  "Your strain is   ready, 'Doctor   Jack,",  says the o'fficial to x whom'   he   has   been  turned over.^ ' ' A  "Good"'  " The small amount Aof   luggage   is put  aboard,   and   presently "^ they   enter   the  Pullman*"sleeper' which 'is to   be   their  quarters until the regular   tram   is overhauled.    * j     <���������-'   '   *'    *  (.   It is not an unusual thing for a special  to be sent   flying   over   the L lails,    and,  according to the rules ot tho road1, everything gives way to such   a   wizard traveler.

When the locomotive   gets   warmed to  the work, moio astonishing   figures   will  be shown.                                        .  As for Larry,this pleases him immensely. He lolls in a chair m tho smoking  compartment, and uses up numcrou.  packages of cigarettes���������a luxuiy he ha"*  been deprived of for some time, owing to  the haste'of their departure from Valparaiso. The others now 'understand the  meaning of Larry's wonderful smile so  child-like and bland, when he came in  with bulging pockets, while they were at  lunch. He had bought out tho entire  cigarette stock of the dealer m the station, resolved not to be lelfc m the giand  hustle across the Continent.  Jack has secured pillows from the porter of the car, and has a lower berth  made up for Avis, who, feeling tired,  will die down for a time.  As for himself, he enters into conversation -with the conductor,1 a bright,  agreeable fellow, and picks up a number  of facts connected with the route across  the plains, some of which may prove  valuable to him. -  "I wonder if, with this   open window, i  I could indulge in a   cigar.    Join   me?"  he says.  "With pleasure, sir. You can do what  you please, since you own the car for the  time being. Of course, Ave have a smoking compartment���������"  "Larry monopolizes that," laughs  Jack, lighting up.  "What' that little man9"  "With a fearful weed "  "Ah1 I comprehend.    You do not take  to the cigarette, then:'"  "I abominate them; but Larry is privileged Pro's a great fellow. Let me tell  you some ot the things I've known him  to do."  These are numerous enough to cause  the conductor to frel the utmost interest  in the peculiar little dude, though finding it hard to understand how a hero  can appear such an oddity.  Their speed is terrific.  ���������:'_.'; At times :they seem, to actually shoot  ���������through space, such is the manner in;  which-a fearless engineer can whirl a  specialon .its'..way.' Doctor Jack is deeply  interested in the progress made, and  makes a copy of the schedule which the  conductor carries, of course subject- to  changes. -A fed light at a station may  bring;them to a halt, when a Ynessage  brought aboard will govern their future  movements. ��������� Y. ' '  They slow up'in passing a  station, the  conductor looks out,. guesses  the identity  of the place, consults his paper   and   announces that they are "oh time." ..''.'"  So the night "ride goes qn.-  What Jack   fears'most   of all is some  accident, that   may   delay   them.       He  knows the   men   with   whom   he deals,  and would put no deviltry past them.    If  they learn in some way,   as   is   certainly,  possible,., that   a   (special   follows them,  they can readily jump at conclusions and  understand who pays the bill,     i  Jack believes a man would be dropped  at, some stations with -instructions to  blow up the track, or in any way delay  the special for some hours, even if compelled to ditch it.  This Kb earnestly trusts will not take  place. A train going seventy miles an  'hour takes chances enough un "Vr ordinary circumstances,' without; the attention  of train wreckers.  These thoughts would keep Jack from  sleeping, even did he care to. -He remains  awake and speculates as to what he can  do in case certain possibilities become  -realities. ,   -,  At just five minutes of one, as he i������  replacing his, watch, a sudden shrill  whistle sounds, and it is, e<-*sy to feel the  action of the air brakes. ���������The tiv.jn come-*  to a stand. They are'just about a quarter of a mild from a village, where, as the  conductor informed him, regular trains  weie accustomed to draw i:p, and receive  telegraphic messages while the engine  was renewed with water.'  Jack puts his head one of the* window.  The first thing he sees is   a   ml   lantern  on tho track just ahead of the locomotive.  Here is aggravation, vexation, delay.  He swings   himself, off   -the car, with  Larry at his heels, to Fee what it means.  Avis has  iippcared,    and   looks   from   a  window, anxious because  she enters into  .Jack's plans with all her" heart as a loving and faithful wife should.  ��������� When   Doctor   Jack   reaches   the spot  where tho red lantern is  ho   finds   thero  the   engineer     and      conductor   of   his  "special." -   -  "What's wrong9" , ���������<  Tho conductor is swearing, while the  engineer keeps looking, around as though  he iully expects to see a band of daring  road-agents appear in view.  A rail has been removed���������it lays neav  byjacross the track. Only for the red  light those on the > special ..would have  been wrecked in a terrible manner.    ',  "Very considerate of^ the rascals,."  says the conductor, puzzled and angry.  "I can account for ip'.< All they wanted  was to delay us," and Jack tells his idea.  , "By Jove! what'is-to hinder us replacing the wail. Then it's only a little time  wasted:-" and Larry tugs' aAvay at the  long steel, rail in "a manner, that, if quite  ineffectual, shows his desire to accomplish something. ' " r*  . His words electrify them." The porter,'  fireman, rand ������ Kirke, Smith are called,  and in a few minutes the rail is in position.       v                ."      <���������  Every 'spike 'has   been' thrown away,  ' but there is a claw for drawing  more on  the   engine ,andf a, hammerYor driving  them home.     i < ��������� T ,  \ Lanterns are* not needed, since the  brilliant' headlight 'of the engine gives  them all the illumination thoy could  wish , foiV> One picks out a spike here  and there.

'  ,    What   would   have - perhaps  paralyzed  traffic for a time on many  an   European  'railroad, had'been "only ' am incident "of  thirteen minutes duration on this American trans-continental line.^* ,   ,  '���������{. Thcy^ hasten onco "more ,to Jx>ard   the  I special/ andf' 'forward' r<is-,'the;"cry.   Ayis  has a story to tell now, *and!l*T3when ���������,������Doc-  tor Jack hears Jt, ihe experiences mingled  emotions, anger for   his ^'bitter 'enemies,  and admiration toward his brave 5>vife. It  also makes clear the'desigrijof the" parties"  who removed the rail.     ������.--"������������������.,  While the men were, all at work in  front of the 'locomotive, 'Avis,., looking  out of the window, heard a noise toward  the rear of the car, and'glancing in that  direction, was just in time to see a man's  legs passing in at one of the windows  which Larry had left open.  Quick to comprehend the situation,  and not deigning to call for help, Doctor  Jack's wife had opened   her   satchel and  wnlcn more tnan once nppear to De  timely, and are readily seized upon by  Jack.  All of them note the passage of time  now, and figure on results. When the  special is halted once at a station for new  orders/ Jack takes advantage of the short  delay to ask questions, learning that the  Rocky Mountain Overland Flyer express  passed this point just twenty-five minutes before, being an hour and ten minutes  late.  This is cause for congratulation, since  they have reduced tho lead thus far more  than half, and it begins to look as though  before a great while their end' will be  attained. . .  "   The night wears on.  Several times something^ occurs to de-  Jay them, but Doctor Jack shows no  Figns of despair.

'Sw i  secured the revolver given to her long  ago by the man who had also taught her  how to use it.  Then leaving   her   seat,   she glided to  the rear portion of tho car.  Looking into the smoking compartment, which Larry had pre-empted as  his own private "den," Avis is just in  time to discover a dark-faced man examining into the sacred mysteries of the  dude's valise, while a comrade, half-way  through the window, seems ready to receive whatever spoils may be discovered.  Avis Evans has no difficulty in making up her mind that these men are engaged in something that does not concern them. She does not stop to speculate upon the facts���������it is enough to understand that they mean robbery.  A movement which she makes attracts  the attention of the man in tho window,  who, uttering a sharp exclamation, drops  out of sight. His companion, attracted  by the cry, glances upward, and suddenly remembers an engagement he has  in another quarter, of such importance  that he hardly knows whether he goes  through the window head or feet first.  Doctor Jack's brave wifo having thus  disposed of the rascals, busies herself in  closing every window of the car, which  task she has hardly completely when her  husband and his friends enter again; at  the same time their progress is resumed.  Jack is ablo to put two and two together, and the result is one that.satisfies  him';'. ���������'.".-  "At least we leave a couple of our  enemies behind,'' he reflects, though  forced to confess his ignorance regarding  the number of foes ahead.  CHAPTER XXVI.  Once more their speed is as swift as  the wind that whistles down from the  defiles of the mountains. " '   ���������  y The time lost will soon be made up,  for the express trais ahead cannot begin  to annihilate space as they do, so there  is a constant gaining on their part.  It is possible to figure put a victory  again, unless their enemies hatch up  some new form, of deviltry to baffle them,  which Jack looks out for. He believes  the. red lantern of warning was. only  placed on the track to . alarm those on  board the special simply because Doctor  Jack's wife was present. Only for this  fact the special would have, plunged into  death���������or to strike a broken rail when  going at the rate 'of a mile a minute,  means even more than death���������annihilation.  Avis sleeps no more. ���������  She. is too thoroughly  interested in the  events going on   around   her,   for  what  concerns Jacks interests her.

This time they do  not have a car to   themselves,   but there  is plenty of room.    Doctor  Jack will not  be crowded, and,   if necessary, ne would  have   engaged   the   sleeper     which   the  special engine drew to   take   them on to  Ogden and even Denver.  Once more, forward.  He knows ho is now on board the same  train as his   foes.    Milord   and   Colonel  Garcia are fci the   Pullman   with   them.  The latter looks out of the window when  our party passes, but the unabashed Englishman, with   a   spy-glass   in   his   left  optic, eyes them questioningly,   much to  Larry's unbounded   admiration, for he is  able to pick up an idea or so here.  Jack has time to think matters over.  He believes his enemies, whoLhave combined against him, wMr not give up the  ship as long as he is west of New York.  They have too much at stake to give  up until the last prop is> knocked away.  The Chilians are banded by their league  to fight for the possession of tho packet,'  or at least to keep Doctor Jack out of  New York until the day which he has  set upon reaching the metropolis has  passed. Lord Backctt is urged on by his  passions, and the vow he made to wed  the widow of the American athlete.  Even bitter enemies can travel in luxurious Pullman cars, and not come in  contact. Tho battle may be one of looks  and sneers.  Toward tho land of the rising sun this  trans-continental train speeds. Doctor  Jack has a head on his shoulders that is  worth something. When ; they take on a  new locomotive, he is on deck and has a  little chat with the driver. Perhaps a  gold piece changes ��������� hands. At any rate,  they all fancy the man of nerve, and the  long train whir Is. from station to station  on time.  " You must be a wizard, Doctor Jack,''  remarks the Pullman conductor, laughing. "It is many a day siji'ce I have gone  through here with such a'������nap and vim.  We start each time as though we .'meant  .business,'but. something-throws us out of  gear.

Dan Hatcie sworn: "I live at Union Bay,  am a car carpenter; have worked as assistant foreman on Howe trussles, .etc. J. examined the ruins of Trent river bridge. I  heard the evidence of Mr. McLaughlin as to  particulars of the bridge as to construction  and as to the measurements he gave. He is  not far out....   ,. .Mr. McLaughlin figures  tally  with' *my   observations t .From  what I saw of' the wreck, I think  the cause  ef the accident wrs that the weight on top  cauaed the   bridge to e.ig   and parted the  bottom chord about the centre of  the span  .....The   strength   of   a   truss    depends  largely upon its'being screwed up  properly.  I hp-ve seen   trusses)  go   two' years, but  I  think they should be gone over once a year.  The life  of a wooden bridge I have always  understood to be between seven and eight  years,' that is the life of the wood. In about  that timo it begins to rot in places just as  the chords in this were.   I think  these rotten places in the phords had something - to  do with   the   break.   I think   the - bottom  chord would part more easily if  the wood  were-rotten."   In  answer to a juror  said.  "If the keys were  rotten it would weaken  the structure.    It would tend to, loosen the  bolts of the leaves if rotten, ������������������ These y bolts  are an important part of the bridge.

I have been in the profession 30  years. - Have made au examination of   the  Trent River bridge 18 th August F have  calculated the stress on the different-chords  at the time of the accident. Tbe weight of  the train was 210,000 lbs. That, includes  the tender, locomotive and two cars, ' the  weight of the truss iteelf1186,000 lbs, the  weight of the bridge and the load together,  482,000 lbs.' On all trusses whether .Howe  or other kind,' the maximum strain on the  braces is at the end of tne span; or, in other words,, the end braces suffer the greatest  strain. In the present case the maximum  strain at the centre of the chords1 amounts  to 500 lbs per square inch of ' the sectional  area of the chord material, and the - muxi-  mum straiu on the eud braces to 420 lbs per  square inch of the sectional ui est of the , material in the end Jbpaces. /The total 'strain  on the centre panel is 408,000 lbs witb  ' train loaded... .Science does not enable uo  to calculate the difference in strain between  a- stationery and" moving' train....The  bridge waa built of Douglas fir.. . I have  an idea as to the nature of the forces ' tbat  caused the accident. I believe the truss  failed under the action ot forces applied at  the north end in the direction of its length,  but what caused these forces I can't say.  I believe the same forces applied to the  sac- e truss the day after it was built, would  produca the same result.    I  have   been   au  engineer for the C.P.R., I think they would  allow a bridge to stand as long as this ha*,  if they knew the chords contained as much  rot as the exhibits do... I am ot opinion  the span was capable of performing the  work safely....I think the wei::lit the  bridge was called upon to bear ������ u\dd bo  but a small percentage of tbe tnouru-ulum of  the force which caused its destruction.
