correspondent for one of the great

One day Eaton took his traveling
cqulpago and visited the outpost on
tho main road leading southward.
There he spent somo tlmo with the
commandant, and when he left said to
"Tho Journal I represent pays for
everything It gets. Tho information
you have given me 1st invaluable. I
therefore leave with you this bag of
gold, containing 5,000 rubles."
Tho officer looked nt the American
In astonishment, but took the bag.
"I do not dcslro that my papers shall

pass here some night with them pack

tom of the vehicle. Look carefully un
der the front seat and you will find a
bag containing another 5,000 rubles."
Tho olllcer said nothing, but gave tho
Journalist a look that satisfied him.
That night Eaton, declaring that he
was tired, went to his room early.
Whan all were asleep he made a rope
ladder of his bcdclothlng nnd silently
let htmRclf from his window, landing
in" deep snow. Then ho stole away
and walked rapidly to a clump of huts
some distance down the road. They
comprised tho "frco command," nnd
in them dwelt such political exiles,
as had served their terms In prison.
Approaching one of tho huts, he
rapped softly on the door and an old
woman replied to tho summons.
"Is Ellznbeth Kalturln hero?"
Without waiting for an invitation,
he entered nnd shut tho door. Tho
woman barred it and lighted a lamp.
"In there," she said, pointing. "She
is 111 In bed."
"Yes; I know. But for that she
would bo in 'prison. I havo learned
all about her, both lu Russia and slnco

Eaton went Into tho other room,
where a girl sat up In bed. She stared
at him wltli great luBtrous eyes and,
taklng'hlm for a visiting official, said:
"I'm not well enough to go back to
prison yet; Indeed I'm not."
Then the old woman held up the
candlo nnd tho invalid recognized
"I havo co mo for you," ho said.
"Because I love you."
"But you knew mo only a week I"
gasped tho astonished girl.
"That was enough."
Eaton spent an hour in the but he

On reaching tho outpost ho was stop

Not far from the outpost Eaton or

Earthquakes mid Volcanoes.
The great Indian earthquake of
a short time ngo, which caused Ihe
loss of many lives, seems to 'It Arc
been a warning of another convul
sion wilh the earlh's crust simitar
to that which caused such a terrific
cataclysm in the West Indies three
years ago aud was accompanied by
other manifestations nt various
points on the c.irth'bs urfacc, Now
comes word that Mount Pelec is
again "in eruption, thus far in a
moderate degree, but with hints of
continuing activity which may de
velop into another tremendous' o;tt
burst. Iu the island of Guadeloupe
earthquakes have recently occurred,
and the volcano of La Soufriere, on
the island of St Vincent, has lately
been in slignt eruption. Seismolo
gists nre intently watchiiif) the
sytnptons of a coming discharge of
the molten contents cf the earth's
crust in great volume and perhnps
with tragic results.
The eruptions of 1902, marked
by the destruction of the city of St.
Pierre on Martinique, afforded
scientists a field of research' dn'd an
abundance of materials which were
welcomed in the hope of developing
a more satisfactory theory of these
occasional disturbances. After a
close examination of the evidence
then supplied, certain eminent Eu
ropean and American students of
this branch of knowledge have put
forth as their latest belief the asser
tion that the volcanic eruptions are
not caused by shiftiugs iu the pres
sure of the earth's crust, but rather
that the shiftiugs are the result of
the discharge of the gases which
have accumulated in the molten in
terior. Formerly many held to the
view that sudden descent of the
waters of the ocean or of some other
considerable body of water into the
heated interior caused the uick
production of steam which demand
ed outlet and forced open the vents
which had previously been formed,
styled volcanoes. This theory is
rejected by many leading seismolo
gists, and the line of cause and
effect is run by them in the reverse
direction. Instead of the oceans
causing the volcanic eruptions, they
aver, the eruptions are iu reality
the cause of the oceans. The dis
charge of gases from the molten in
terior, they claim, gave the cooling
earth in the first stages of its solidi
fying process its moisture by con
densation, and thus water was add
ed to the components of this sphere.
Whatever may be the chnitvof
circumstances leading to Ihcf'pfe
sent condition, it is demonstrated
by many proofs that the eaith's
interior is still in a highly heated
state; that it is gradually cooling;
that eruptions are less frepuent now
than in earlier ages, and that there
remain sufficient volcanic forces at
work to give rise occasionally to
disturbances of immeasurable vio
lence.reudering life in the vicinity
of the chimneys and along the lines
of surface-quaking extremely hnz;
ardous. It is assured that science
cannot learn enough from the vol
canoes as to the nature of their
periodical activities to enable man
to check these eruptious. But it
may learn something that will en
able man to foresee the eruptions
more distinctly and sufficently in
advance to give a saving warning;
and perhaps some day a way may
be found to harness to man's uses
some of the force that is expended
in blowing out the corks at these
vents and relieving the pressure
upon the interior of the crust. .
An American Itemotly.
There is probably no medeciile
manufactured that can be found in
more homes in the United States
than Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. It has
been in general use for over thirty
years and each successive epidemic
of Diarrhoea and dysentery during
this time has tested its merit and
proved its superiority over all simi
lar preparations. The reliability
and prompt cures of this remedy
have won for it the confidence of
many phystcians who often pres
cribe it in their practice. No case
has ever yet been reported where
its use has failed to give relief.
