MYSTERY OF A DEEAil.
I am about to write the story of the
one great mystery of my life. I have
told tho story to many pcoplo, but with
ono exception they huvo ull looked very
iijc'redulons. Mnny shook thoir lieads,
and not n. few noted as if thoy thought
me a triflo demented. Thero is one,
however, who is now sitting near the ta
ble nt which I am writing that behoves
my story implicitly. Indeed Ediena,
my darling wife, lenows full well that
tho story which I am about to write i9
I cannot toll when tho knowledge that
I loved Ediena Wyldmero was first re
vealed to me. We wero children to
gether, and as we grew older wo seemed
like brother and sister. Even then she
was all the world to mo, and how dear 1
was to her her own sweet lips havo told
me a hundred times. Our joys and sor
rows wero shared together. As happy,
thoughtless children wo romped and
laughed, and many a time wo mingled
our tears in childish grief. As tho years
rolled away our affection for each other
grew steadily stronger and deeper.
At 10 Ediena was as fair and pure as
the most spotless thing under tho sun. 1
almost worshiped her then, but I was
still young and no thought of marriage
entered my head. So beautiful a maid
en could not long avoid attracting ad
miring suitors, and among those who
flocked around her was ono Cyril Stay
thorne, tho tall, proud, aristocratic mas
ter of Stiythorne hall, which had been
left him at the death of his wealthy fa
ther. I will not deny that I soon grew jeal
ous of many of theso fawning and flatter
ing suitors, and of Cyril Staythorne in
particular. Most beautiful young ladies
are naturally a triile inclined to be flirts,
and Ediena Wyldmero was no exception.
Not but that sho loved mo as truly and
dearly as ever, but never had I made a
serious declaration of my passion, and
for a timo she onjoyod tho attention be
stowed upon her by those who had been
smitten by her raro charms of grace and
I was poor, a carpenter's son, and this
fact alone in the eyes of Iter parents dis
qualified me as a son-in-law. Our
Saviour was a carpentor's sou, but this
fact has not caused the calling to bo
deemed more lofty than it was nineteen
hundred yeaid ago. Ediena's parents
wero on tho ovok for a "good match"
for their daughter and they looked with
favor upon Cyril Staythorno. They
wero too wiso to como out openly and
request Ediena to have nothing further
to do with tho poor carpenter's son, but
in divers ways thoy did everything thoy
could to separate us and to install Stay
thorno in her favor.
I shall never forget tho feeling of rage
and despair that seized me as ono duy I
saw Ediena seated in Cyril Staythorno's
handsome carriage, with Staythorne
himself by her side. I cannot describe
our next meeting. How much I was to
blamo for what followed I now know,
but I then thought I had just cause for
what I did. Hot words were uttered,
and for tho first timo wo parted in
The next day I loft the quiet New
England town where twenty-one years
of my lifo had been spent. A passengei
train bore mo away out into tho world.
I was going anywhere that I might get
away from the hateful spot that I bad 1
always known as home, where so many
happy days had been spent with the ono
from whom I thought fate had separat
ed me forever.
" I sought and obtaiued employment in
a great city, the crowded streets and
hurrying rush of which seemed very
strange and unnatural to me. I tried to
forget my old homo and Ediena, but 1
Boon found it impossible to do so. Strive
as I might to tear her imago from my
bosom her fair, sweet face was almost
always before" mo. Sternly I fought
against tho power that seemed to be
drawing mo back to her. Many a night
did I awaken and sit bolt upright in the
darkness of my littls room, with her
plaintive ciy sounding in my ears.
"Oh, Jasper, como back to mo!"
It always seemed very real, but rrea
sonctlm) self into thinking that it was
all Imagination. I now know that many,
many times sho uttered that vory cry.
Ono day an accident happened to mo.
I was passing along beneath the spot
where repaira wero being mado on a
building wheu a falling board stiuck
mo senseless, I was picked up and car
ried to n hospital, but when I recovered
consciousnosi I did not know my own
name. My mind did ifbt beem dcruiiged.
I could remember events and people, but
I could not recall tho numu of a single
ponton whom I know, Thoy told wo
that I had been Homely injured and
that doubtless mi I Improved my meinoi y
would bcrvn )nu better.

I found myolf in n famlllnr npot It

idly coining on. Tho black hi-ivetn woro
ncnmcd with ftro, and djpp thunder
mired Hko art enraged munstor I was i
iilmiding mi the old bridge which pnn-
lied a winding ctronui not far from my
boyhood homo. Suddenly n flash of
lightning (diowed mo Ediena hurrying
ulontr tho bridrte.
Staitled niidaninsed that Mionhould
bo thoru nt siioh a timo, 1 was about to
malto my presence known, whon an
other flash showed n second person on
tho bridge Plainly 1 caw his dark,
mustachod, evilly linndcoruo face, and
plniuly I hoard Ediena's cry of aurpvlw
nnd fear as ho confronted her midway
on tho trestle. Then through tho dark
ness floated his triumphant exclama
tion: "Ali-ah! Ediena Wyldmero, 1 have
you now! Twlco I havo asked yon to
bomy wifo, only to meet with lefusul
and scorn. To-night I swear you (shall
consent to many mo, or jou meet youi
death in tho wators Of Crooked rivor!"
Then came another flash of light that
showed my dailiug struggling in hia
j vilo cl.inp. To my nan r.imo a cry that
stirred every drop of blood in my veins:
In an instant I leaped fonvnrd uud
toro her from his arms; at tliu same time
1 dealt him u terrific blow tiut sont him
reeling against tho railing of tho budge.
Tho lotten guard gao way, and flinging
up his arms, with tho look of uuutieia
bio hoiror on his face plainly revealed
by tho vivid gluie, lie uttered ono wild
cry and pluugod downward into the
darlc water Sdiena uttered ono joyful
l "Jasper! Jasper!"
1 Then sho rink unconscious nt my foot.
From that moniont I knew no moro un
til I awoko in tho morning to find my
self in the ho pital. And in the morning
my memory (was fully restored to it
1 natural condition. I found that I know
my own namo and tho names of my
j friends. That day I loft tho hospital.
I remained in tho city a week, nnd
during tho entire time my strange
dream if dream it wa9 worried me
constantly. Was Ediena in trouble?
Did she need my protection?
As a final result, ono night I boarded
a swift train, nnd in tho morning I stood
by my darling's bedside. Sho was just
recovering from n brief but severe ill
ness. As sho clung to my hand and
Bhed tears of joy sho sobbed reproach
fully: "Oh, Jasper! Why did you leavo me
thero on that bridge after rescuing me
from Cyril Staythorne's hands?"
"What do you mean?" I hoarsely
gasped, scarcely able to credit my cars.
Then she described a scene 'just as 1
had witnessed and taken part in my
dream. Sho finally said:
"I was over to Mabel Gray's, Where 1
intended to spend tho night, when the
thunder storm camo up. I don't know
why I did it, but I resolved to return
home, and I started out despite tho pro
tests of both Mabel and her mother. I
met Staythorno on tho bridge. Ho seized
mo in his vilo grasp, and I called for
help. Then you t,amo and snatched me
from his hands, at tho same time hurling
him off the bridge. I caught ono glimpse
of jour fuoe as it was lovealed by tho
ligktuiug, and thon 1 fainted. When 1
recovered consciousness it was raining
and I was alouo on the bridgo."
"And Cyril Staythorne?" I asked.
"Was found tho following day float
ing a corpse on Crooked river."
My story ends hero. I havo already
told you that Ediena is my wifo. I can
not explain tho mystery of my dream. I
can only wnto tho question that J have
asked myself a thousand times:
Was it a dream? William T. Patton

Origin of IxHig Measure.
Our measures of length originated in
tho dawn of oivilization, and camo to us
through tho Anglo-Saxons. Tho yard
was originally tho length of u king's
arm; the foot, tho length of bis pedal
extremities. Tho word inch is derived
from tho Latin uncia, a twelfth part,
but why tho foot was divided into
twelfths, instead of tenths or elevenths,
no ono claims to bo wiso enough to tell.
It has been suggested that probably tho
inch was originally tho length of tho
second joint of tho foiefinger, and that
twelve of thcso about equal the length of
tho forearm, which averages about one
foot in length.
Tho inch used to bo divided into three
"barloycorus," wliich were simply the
length of the gram or "corn" of tho bar
lej The "mile" was reckoned at 1,000
paces, as its name shows, for it is do-
rived from tho first word of
phrase millia passuum, "a
paces." Tho origin of tho

A Tull Truo Story.
Fresno county, Cal.,now comes to the
front and claims ownership of the "larg
est largo true." A party of bear hunt
ers, it is said, located it in tho Sierras,
in the moit ruggod portion of tho mount
ains, two miles north of Kentucky
Meadows. It was sun ounded for a milo
by almost impouetiablo underbrush, so
that the hunters wero compelled to usb
both knifo and ax to get to it. As tlireo
brown bears wero captured near it no
doubt tho hunters crept forward with
bated breath. What sort of "bint" may
bo inferred from their report that the
tree was 120 feet in circuinfercnco four
feet from the ground. Philadelphia
