ROMANCE OF THE WAB
The buttle at lust WM Antrim! The
victory was lost anil won. Ami while
the dt'feiiteil army hail fallen back to
take shelter ni the woods ami mountain
passes the victorious host had en
camped upon the field of act ion. A thick
misty haze bang over the landscape,
through which the setting sun shone
like a great copper shield burnished and
readv for combat,
Since early morn the battle had been
in progress, and tho carnage was fright
ful. Even the sturdiest of the surgeons
had more than once turned pale as they
Worked over their improvised Operating
tallies, and all had felt a sensation of
laintness that they did not care to own.
In one coiner of the field when the
Dght had been the hottest, tn a little
grove of half a dozen trees at tho angle
of a stone wall, knelt tho colonel of a
New Vurk regiment beside the prostrate
form of his own lieutenant, a young
man of English birth and a great fa
Torite among his comrades. iTis breath
came slowly and painfully, and when he
Btroe to speak the lifeblood welled ujiin
iiis t in oat so as to almost choke all at ter
"Creston, my boy," said the colonel in
the low voice which he always used when
in the presence of suffering for the col
onel was as kind and as gentle asn woman
to the sick "is there anything more
that 1 can do for you any word or mes
sage that you want to send? for you
t 'n ston's lips parted with a faint and
almost imperceptible motion, and the
colonel bending low caught tho words
'Lift me up,
Raising the dviug man to a half sit- !
ting position, the colonel held him in his
own strong arms and gently wiped the
red froth from his lips.
"Colonel" tho words were weak and
low "my vest open the the pocket
The exertion was so great that ho could
say no more. The colonel, opening the
Vest, drew from an inner pocket a min
iature, the portrait of a young and
beautiful girl, so beautiful that even
then the colonel could not help gazing
upon the likeness with interest and ad
miration. "And this?" he questioned as he held
it up to the eyes of his dying comrade
The pale face of the
strangely bright wdien he looked upon
the bit of painted ivory before him.
"In England,' ho whispered, "she
lives DensXnOnd in Devonshire you'll
remember take her this, yourself no
one else. Find here in Densniond, Ame
lia Burton. Tell her I didn't forgot"
A torrent of crimson lifeblood gushed
from his lips, and all was over. The
colonel arose, folded a blanket and placed
it beneath the head I if the corpse. Thon
the night winds gathered and whispered
among the trees and brushed with their
dark pinions the bright, cold drops that
stood on tho pale forehead of Herbert
Already the sun was casting long shad
ows over the landscape around the pretty
English village of Densniond in Devon
shire, for Densniond was pretty and
everybody said so that is, everybody
wdio had ever been there said so. And
as for those unfortunate beings wdio had
not been there, they were so very much
in the minority that no one ever cared a
straw what they said or thought.
Tho day had been hot and sultry, and
with the advent of the cooling breezes
of evening every one wdio could pos
sibly get out of doors did so, for the air
was delicious now after the overpower
ing heat of the day.
Along the dusty highway a man, well
dressed and evidently a stranger in the
country through which he was passing,
was walking slowly, evidently absorbed
in thought. He was about 40, of a
bronzed complexion and dark hair, now
ulightly tinged with gray. On the whole
he was far from handsome, nor did the
mar of a saber wound across his fore
head add to his attractions.
Just now ho paused before a cottage
that stood somewhat back from the pub
lic road, almost buried in flowers, like a
modest and retiring cottage that it was.
Sounds of happy laughter OHM from an
arbor, concealed by the surrounding
hedge. Colonel Nathaniel Pember paused
but a moment, however, before he opened
"Can you tell me," he aeked one of the
party of young girls that met his view
as he entered, "if you know of any ouo
residing in this neighborhood by tho
DUM of of Amelia Burton?"
"Yes, indeed," answered one of the
young ladies, with u meaning smile, "but
you'll have to hurry, though, for there
will be no snch person here after to
night." 'She she is not sick not dying, is
ehe?" questioned the colonel hastily.
"Oh, not at all," answered the young
lady, with a pleasant laugh, "only she's
going to be married to Lord Littel to
night." "Married?" said the colonel, half to
himself; then aloud: "Can you tell me
wlu ie she lives? 1 must see her upon
hu-iiium, - something very important.''
' It's not very far from here, The house
in the park that you see on the left be 1
longs, to her lather Mm yen must btir j
ry. It's after 8(W and you've MM mi
Colonel Pember turned and Walked
hastily along the road. "Married married-
then 1 am loo late. Perhaps not.
I don't nndsrstand it. 1 can't.'' And
Willi every step he took came tho re
frain." Married, married, married.'
The next day D. n-moiid was all I

Crof ton Hurt on had refused at the Inst
moment to marry Lord LofloOM LlttoL
And then, too, the appearance of this
suspicious, looking Ami riean. That mint
not be overlooked. Surely there was
Something in this, "if those as knew
would tell." Bttt the 1 Ion. Hui Ion. M
I',, would tell nothing, and as Lord Lit
tel had h it for town that morning he
could ti ll nothing, and Miss Hnrtou, she
had declared that she would tell roth
big. So there the matter rested, and
like every other sensation was almost
forgotten 10 days alter.
Almost, 1 say, for Colonel I'emlierhad
taken lodgings at the Pot and Kettle,
and scarcely a day passed hut he made
his way to The Oaks, the residence of
Mr. Burton, who seemed to have a great
fancy for his company.
Nor was it long in becoming common
talk that tho colonel had returned to
Miss Burton on the eve of her intended
wedding a blood stained miniature, the
token of a schoolgirl love that she had
given to Herbert Creston, the village
ne'er do well, and that as she saw the
picture, stained with his lifeblood, the
old love had returned, and she had re
fused to marry any olio else.
So passed a year, and again summer
visited the little village, sprinkling the
i lawns with yellow dandelions and the
hedges with all manner of sweetness.
From the many farmyards came the
1 sounds of cattle and of fowls upon tin'
clear and silent air, mingled with the
f brooks. Tho trees,
resplendent in their "garments of green,"
cast grateful shadows for tho noonday
wanderer. And then the gardensl Roses
everywhere. The air was olio mass of
perfume, delightful and overpowering,
tho first sweet gift of summer.
Hilling this time Miss Burton had not
been seen by the village folk.savoon one
or two rare occasions, and those who had
viewed her reported that she was looking
pale and sickly, and that she scarcely ever
spoke. Now, however, at the approach
of summer she had thrown off her
gloomy aspect, laid aside the "inky
cloak" that she had insisted upon wear
ing and had even gone so far as to ride
out into the country, and always with
the colonel as a companion.
One night they walked together in the
gardens that almost entirely surrounded
The Oaks. There was noot her light than
that of the stars. As Amelia paused the
colonel phiecd his arm about her and

And she answered "Yes "
Far away in the wilderness of Virginia
the night winds gathered and whispered
and murmured and muttered, and with
their dark pinions brushed tho bright
cold drops of dew that clung to the
blades of grass above the unmarked
grave of Herbert Creston. Exchange.

"The world is full of people who think
they know it all," said John A. Starr
"and in no subject is there bo much su
perfluous knowledge rolling around as
that which relates to food adulteration
and substitution. What little money I
have has been made out of sugar, and I
profess to know something about that
indispensable and very popular article
I But I learned something the other day
which neither 1 nor any one else ever
knew before. I was eating bieakfasl
with a chapoe acquaintance Iliad picked
up on the cars, and ho called for some
crushed sugar, objecting to white lump
because, as he assured mo confidential
ly, it was all made from glucose, which
was nothing else but animal refuse.
"I explained to him that he was quite
right in his idea excepting in two re
spects, one of which was that wdiite
lump was not made from glucose and
the other that glucose was a product of
com and not of animal refuse. He
seemed rather to resent the information
at first, and as ho proceeded to destroy
the flavor of his coffee by tho use of
some very dark sugar which was little
more or less than glucose itself ho told
me that he had the information from an
authentic source, and that ho could not
be persuaded to ruin his internal organs
at the request of the first stranger he
happened to meet." St. Louis (Jlobo

"Rati you ever noticed," said a St.
Louisan yesterday, "I hose massive iron
pillars now Standing erect in the base
ment of the new Planter's House? Well,
did you ever Hop io think of tho Im
mense weight they will be compelled to
support steadily lor many, many years?
Oh, you have, lint 1 suppose you have
thought the manufacturer just made
those pillars and sold them without
knowing Anything about how much
weight they would bear or how long
they Would bear it. Let me tell you
"Those pillars are oast is tho same
manner as cast iron stoves- by running
the liquid metal into sand molds, but
sjonsideof each pillar is cast an iron bar
from the same metal. The bar is pre
cisely an inch square and ,"J feet in
length. When cold, it is subjected to a
very simple test. Bach end of the bar
is placed upon a table and weights arc
suspended from the center by a rope. It
must bear a tensile strength of BOO
p a nds to tho square inch. The test may
begin with 400 pounds and be gradually
I increased until the bar is found to be
perfectly supporting the required weight.
If it breaks, for instance, at 480 or 490
pounds, then the pillar cast from the pot
of metal Which cast tho bar is discarded,
broken up and put into tho pot again,
with moro pig iron added. The pillars,
yon know, are largely made from Reran
iron, and tho manufacturers cannot know
the Strength of the cast until it is tested.
The addition of pig iron in the event of
i failure brings the cast up to the stand
