BETWEENTHE LEAVES  The Will That Was Left by Eccentric Old John Leyden.  By JENNIE E. SARGENT.  Tho good people of LeyuVriville were  wrought up to a tine pitch .of rlghtt-ous  Indignation, but If old Henry Li-yd'-n,  three days In his grave, could have  hoard,,the comments which followed  the reudrng of his will', be would probably hiive chuckled Just as be hud  done in bygone days when Iris neigh  bors had discussed his domestic oi  business affairs.  .', The will was a marvel of simplicity,  and  Judge   Harrow  declared   that   no  court on earth would set il aside.  Nevertheless the women who loved  Lucy  ������������������..Leyden for her gentle disposition aud  ;    kindly heart openly grieved. ..Tire men  who  had  admired  John   Willougliby's  brave   struggle   against    heavy   odds  swore ar   im������ deceased  roundly   fur a  stubborn   meddler   with , fate,     liven  Miss   Polly.'Fowler,   who  had   taught  them both at the Utile red schoolliousc,  had been heard to re mar I; in a tone not  wholly   devoid   of   fear   at   her   own  "brashness,"   that,   while   she   didn't  wish any body bad luck, she shouldn't  shed tears if she heard .Henry Leyden  had   met   his   '���������t-omc-uppance"   in   the  next world.  But the fact remained Unit the dead  man had hec|ireatiled his stock in the  I'ccnlur.and Leyih-nvillc road to his  nephew. Hen Morris; his slock In the  Leydenville bank to a distant home for  .cripples, (Henry,. Leyden had been afflicted from blnh with a clubfoot),  rind, after a few scattered bequests to  distant relatives, to lug. he had left  only the,old homestead and all person  al property; found I hereon at the time  of his death  This at least assured Lucy and her  mother the same refuge that had been  ".open .to'them ten years before, when  ("eorge Leyden went the way of prodigal sons, leaving the two women to  the mercies of his crochery but  wealthy t.rother. But ihe income thai  had supported the homestead died with  its owner, and the question of how It  ���������was to be kept up agitated ull Leyden  ville.  Lucy and John vTillnughhy had been  engaged for  tour  veurs, but  the girl's  uncle had stood firmly against the marriage.    John   trad  a '.mother  and   two  sisters 'dependent upon him.   He could  not add ro this burden and the shrewd  banker  proposed to adopt no nepbew-  ln-law.   however   worttiy    the   young  man mighl be.  The   two young people did  not at-  ,.'tempt to veil their disappointment, but  they    fiad   inore   serious   matters   on  hand.     'J'he   handsome   bouse,   tucked  in   the   rapidly growing   business section of the town, yielded not a cent of  income.  Mrs. Levden was one ot thp  clinging, dependent sort of women, and  Lucy   knew   unit  she  must   face the  problem alone.  John suggested that.: they sell the  place and. taking a small cottage, live  ;. off rhe incomeof a safe, conservative  ���������������������������'���������investment-of the balance. But Lucy  protested against the sacrilege. She  knew that it was her uncle's wish that  she should coutinne to occupy the old  house.  Lucy thought they might take roomers arid-. boardprs. but John pictured  the pert young clerks from the freight  offices or:the dapper youths from the  "Boston stoor" waited upon by his  Lucy, and the plan died a violent  ���������death. It was Mrs. Leyden���������limp,  phlegmatic Mrs Leyden���������who finally  solved the problem. *"*  "You ain't thought of the library,  Lucy. You remember how yout Uncle  Henry always talked about it. He had  beun years colleering those old books.  Lots ot them gn as far back as the  devolution, and some of the oldest  were printed in Kngiand before (here  was any America. Don't you remember bow he used to walk up and down  this room and shake his head at the  books, saying, 'Emmy, there's thousands In this room thousands?' 1  know he paid ridiculous prices for  some of them. Maybe there's others  as daffy about old books as he was."  John's face brightened, and he took  both of Lucy's hands iu his.  "That's It, Lucy. We'll have a buyer  conn1 up from ihe city nnd look them  over. There may be a fortune In them,  and you need money more than those  musty old things.''  Lucy did not im-uver at once. There  was a-strong strain ot sentimeut lu  her nn ure. and she loved especially  this old library wbere her uncle had  spent his last days.  Nevertheless that night she indited  a letter to u noted collector in Huston  aud two days later received a note  staling that Mr. Henry Leyden's library was famous enough lo warrant  his sending a represenratlve to Leydenville. His buyer would arrive the  following morning.  Aud thai night came the deluge.  Lucy was "silting up" with Mrs. lien-  dersou's little boy, who had typhoid  fever. John was to call for her at 12,  when mint her neighbor would take up  the task.  At 10 Hie fire bell rang. Something  told Lucy it was iter tiome, nnd she  sprang to her feel. It was a half  mile run. and when she reached there,  brealbless, ihe brn-kei brigade, enforced by the one engine Ihe town could  boast, had done Us worn. The parlor  was blackened and warer soaked, the  dining room was charred, arid the���������  library? Lucy pushed past sympathetic neighbors and stared wildly Into  the room.   The shelves were bare:  The  world seemed  to spin  around  tier, and out of the mist came John's j  *! nice.  ing. Dobson's hearse was standing In  his barn, and we ran it right through  the fence, up against the'library, window, and your mother shoved the books  iuto the hearse as fast as 1 piled them  out lo, ber. Jimmy Dobsou helped  too." /  Lucy burst Into laughter. The absurdity of the situation roused her  from her misery.

MAGNETISM.  ;8omo of tho Peculiar Properties tvf Thll  Strange Force. "  The true nature of magnetism as  such, of course. Is not known. All  k (bat we can be sure of Is that mag  nolle attraction does not radiate out  ward in all directions as does light,  but simply nets along lines consisting  of closed curves and called Hues or*  force, these linos connecting the two  poles and not extending .very fur outward between them. These curves  may be found very nicely by placing a  horseshoe magnet under a thlo sheet  of paper and sprinkling iron'filings on  top^ The filings will collect along the  lines.  Now. ns to the different kinds of  magnets, there are natural,* artificial  and electro magnets. The natural ones  are found as magnetic ore ln tbe earth,  the artificial ones are made by stroking  a piece of Iron or steel with a magnet, and the electro magnets are caused by the action of an electric current.  .-' Some peculiar things have been noticed in regard to magnetism, among  which are the following facts:  It has been observed''that fire Irons  that have rested In one,position dur-  - ing thesummer months ure often high  ly magnetized, no doubt having Ireen  caused by Ihe magnetism of the earth  Itself by the process known as Induction. Other Iron articles that stay In  one poBltloirnnd do not come In con  tact with fire tor other heat are often  found in the same condition, such as-  Iron bars- it* jail windows nnd iron  railings In front of bouses.  The most peculiar observation made,  however, was that the ripper part of  the steel tire of o carriage wheel attracts the north pole of ,a magnet,  while the bottom part., or part In con  tact with the earth, attracts the south  pole. 'This is In the ��������� northern heml  sphere only nnd Is fully In accord with  the theory of induced magnet ism. Ot  course In the ��������� southern, hemisphere  ���������where the earth Is tinder?the Influence  of the 'soulb. magnetic pole, the condl  tlons are reversed. ' ���������  A,magnet, dipped. Into boiling water  loses a great part.of. lis magnetism,  which Is miraculously restored to It on  becoming,cool again. -  A sharp,lilnw given,ton magnet wll:  enrrseit to lose its magnetism.- Also  the application of- beat will have a  like effect. .  If'a "magnetic needle be placed over  a rapidly revolving plate of copper, although it*be separated from It by a  thick plate of jrrnss.'the needle will'  revolve In the same direction as the  plnte.-Eic-hange.

Below a'deptb of six miles under the  surface of the earth's crust it Is believed that no water can exist In the  rock formations, because the tremendous pressure probably- closes all  pores.

When  John   Houston   died   in  Quesnel  the other day the West  lost one of its most fearless, industrious and picturesque journalists.  Since the days of'71 in Virginia  City John had beeu identified with  the fourth estate in all tho states  between  Alaska and  Mexico.    A  little   over   twenty  years ago he  caine into B. 0. aud since then his  name lias become almost a household word  in  this province.    He  published papers at Donald, New  Westminster,   Nelson, Ainsworth,  Kaslo,   New    Denver,   Rosslaud,  Prince Rupert and Fort George.  With the exception of three, they  were all pioneer papers���������tho first  in   camp.    Houston  was   fearless  and  used his papers as a rule to  further    his   political   aims   and  ideals.     He   was   egotistical   and  could not brook opposition.    If he  could not rule an individual or a  party he would tight them to a red  finale,    ne   was troubled  with a  weak digestion and a cranky Jiver,  and these two demons often caused  hirn to abuse his friende and act in  a manner that lead the thoughtful  to exclaim that the  wall  is only a  knifeblade   seam  between   genius  and .insanity.    His heart was big  as an ox when  you  found the key  to it, but his hatred was intense if  you   threw   mud    at   his   ideals,  theories or plans. He was a fighter,  mentally and" physically and this  quality made  hirn a  hero  in  the  eyes of the men  who blazed, the  trails in the wild, -rich and beautiful West.    John did  not  love the  tender'feet or the "Johncomelate-  Iies," as he was wont to call them.  He was a natural pioneer, and the  fresh, rough life of a new camp appealed more to him than the white  shirts of an effete, even if perfumed  civilization,    ne was blunt in his  manner, but those  who knew him  best could ever see the broad vein  of gold that ran through his formation.    Death  pays many   a   debt  and   makes   our   enemies   throw  bouquets where once they  heaved  rocks, so since  John  climed  the  golden stairs to push clouds with  the  angels,  all,   both  friend   and  foe, are eager to decorate his bier  with the flowers of love, and regret  that nature in  its ruthless march  had  caused him  to drop his able  pen and cross'the divide into that  mysterious territory that lies beyond   the  grave   from' which  no  prospector has ever returned.  police should have all the villains  who sell it punished. It would ho  better for Prince Rupert to havo  licensed hotels and not a lot of  dens that retail booze that even '-.  country hog would not drink.  In the wild and beautiful ' west.  some people throw money at the  birds, but away back iu Cleveland,  Ohio, there lives a saloon, man who  throws booze at the birds. He  soaks a quantity of bread crumbs  in whiskey and scatters the crumbs  where the sparrows may help  themselves. Then he sits and  amuses himself watching the antics of the unsuspecting birds. A  customer came along the other day  and criticized his act. declaring  that it was not humane, but the  saloon keeper says that the birds  enjoy it as much as he does or he  wouldn't doit. He says the same  birds come back day after day afid  bring along other sparrows of liberal views on the drink question.  Moreover, he points out that the  alcohol helps them tof withstand  the rigors of this northern climate,  and does not shorten their lives, as  a sparrow only lives a short time  anyway.
