We  were thrown about  the compartment  roughly, but escaped without a scratch.  On recovering our feet we rushed   out  and at    first   glance" concluded   that  everyone in the cars ahead must have  been killed.    Iu a  moment, 'however,  passengers began to climb out cf   windows, and we forced  the  door of   the  first class coach to allow those  within  to escape.    No one in   this coach   was  injured.    In the colonist car two   passengers- received   scalp    wounds,   but  oniy one of them was at  all    seriously  hurt.  "The biggageman was   quite   badly  hurt.      Ife ' was   crushed ' about   the  shoulders and hips.   'When   the  acci-  dont   happened   ho   was    placing    a  quarter  or  beef   and   a   package    of  mouey near the door to be put  off  at  Crestcn.   and   when   we   pulled   him  from   the   shattered     car ' his    only  thought w?.;i for the   money.

Thoro was nothing  of that sort inside, but I found something else instead which I would have  given a gocd deal'/not to have discovered.",  The landlady paused.  "Well.    What did you find??'  "You see, sir, no good would  have  come of it if I had told any one.

Mr. Gates' in-  loniiation did not seem 'to strike her as  veiy valuable, but she was much intor-  t-sted in the photograph incident. When  1 gave her Mr. Finnecure Vandelem-'e  tale, she could not repress an exclamation of dismay, and she walked up and  clown the room with undisguised emotion.  "And to think that George's life has  been wrecked for such a woman!   It's  awful, Duncan���simply awful! How he  '   could   have   been  so deceived  in her I  -   really cannot understand."

"And yet my friend Parson Wray,  who taw her daily at her home, told me  that who was utterly charming and a  general favorite. He was quite enthusiastic about her."  "It's simply incomprehensible," Mabel replied, "that a woman of that .sort  should so soon be found mixing,up with  the people you have mentioned. How  can ��� you reconcile Mr. Wray's description of her with her friendship with  this man Dick Lambert, who. even in  Vandeleur's eyes, was a disreputable  being?" ;  "I cannot roconcilo the two. accounts  ul all, Mabel, I frankly admit. This is  un additional mystery in thia already  too mysterious aflair. Wray I certainly  c��ii believe, but I know nothing abnnt  Mr. Fiuneoure Vaudeleur. He may have  been telling me a pack of lies for anything 1 know."  "Let me fcee," said Mabel, "how, do  the dates agree? According to this man  Vandoleur, tho joined the company  unout ii year after her disappeaiaiico,  and then a few months aftorward she  left again. That would be about the  time Georgo met her at the village inn  mi tho Wye.

There  was some strong language used on that  green, sir, and though I couldn't hear  the words, it was plain to any ono that  there was a violent quarrel on both  sides. Then,the newcomer seemed about  to strike Mr. Lambert, but Lady Florence she pulls herself together and  stands np.

"Mr. Edison," , said Mr. Baker, "I  heard an interesting story, of your indention of the phonograph the other Sunday in Brooklyn. It was in church, and  the preacher said that when you were a  boy you nad your ear one day to the ice  and heard in the distance the sound of  skates. He said that the idea first came  to you that way."   ' " ���    ,  Mr. Edison1-raised his head.1  "Did a preacher say that?" he asked.  "Yes."  "Bosh! Now, I'll tell you how.it'happened. My model makers all worked by  the piece in' those days, and when I  wanted a 'model I always marked the  price on it. ,In this ease it was $3. I  had the idea of the phonograph in i my  mind, andT drew my desigu and gave it  to a workman named Kruesi.^who finished it in 30 hours.  "Kruesi' fitted the tinfoil oil the cylinder and brought the machine to me. I  turned the handle and recited: <,  "Mary had n little lamb,  Its fleece was white as snow,'  And every where that Mary went  The lamb was sure to go.  "Then I, set the recorder back to the  starting point and, began to , turn the  cylinder. At the very best I had .expected to hear nothing more than a buzzing'  confusion, but ,to my astonishment and  awe the machine began to repeat in a  curious metallic voice:  "Mary had a littlo lamb.  "Thus the first words ever spoken into the phonograph were those four simple lines of 'Mother (loose.' "'  The idea of the phonograph had come  to Mr. Edison with n flash of inspiration, and the, machine proved its marvelous possibilities on the first trial.  Few inventions have ever been conceived or carried out so successfully.

The man who lias "been P>0 years along  tlie wharfs" tells some queer old stories  sometimes. In the haunts whore Philadelphia's mariners most do frequent he  is to be found with some yarn anent the  tortuous Delaware and its tributaries.  Some of the anecdotes have in them good  sense and logic, for the narrator is well  known as the best informed marine statistician in this.part of the world.  This sea propher. however, has become  famous'by his delineation of the mistakes  of captains who have sailed into these  waters. lie is evidently sincere in his  telling, and the positive manner which  characterizes the latter often stamp as  genuine a yarn which might well put  Baron Munchausen or SirMobn Mande-  ville to the blush.  "You have nil heard," began the 30  year wharf stroller to an admiring group  of the shipping fraternity, "how a certain down east Bkipper negotiated for a  charter here to load coal for Omaha and  how the steamboat Major Keybold broke  loose from her moorings one night and  made her regular trip to Milford and re-',  turn, including 19; stops, without any  mishap, although there was nobody on  board.

They answered, 'Co down farther.'
