NRlftHftfWS, By Mrs. Havelock Ellis.
Caroline Ann Stevens sat In her small
kitchen and thought over tho events of
tho morning. She was not accustomed to
reflection, and her brow was puckered
with the effort. She would have given a
fortune, had she had one. to undo her
action of an hour ago, but as it could not
bo she was suffering more than she would
ever have confessed to anyone. X sombre
peace reigned In the little whitewashed
square which inclosed her cottage und
three others. The gossip and excitement
of the early morning had subsided, and
the neighbors sat in twos and threes In
their home3 discussing whether any of
them would be required to ,glve evidence
if It was really true that the police had
been sent for. .In the next cottage sat
Mrs. .Trogllsson, whose "soul had been
torn out of the top of her head," as WI1
mot Trogarth expressed It. and with a
grim smile on her face which HI accorded
with her two black eyes and the white
cloth round her forehead.
As Caroline Ann meditated she heard
a knock on her door. Sho was a brave
woman, but sho shivered slightly as she
said "Come In." It was Police Constable
Caroline Ann. looked up at him quickly,
and ho coughed slightly as ho put his
hand In a determined way on tho table. 1
"Whatever do 'e want ere?" the woman

"You," replied Constable Uren.
"Sakes."' said Caroline Ann. "What

formal way, for he could hear people
shuffling round tho door. "Into thet reason

Caroline Ann had finished her Ihinklng.
and the relief was gradually appearing In
her face. Sho was essentially a woman of
action. In the five years she had lived
out In the west In America she had been

strength of character and almost mascu
line courage. Even In this little village
few people cared to provolte her, as it
was rumored thai she still kept a pistol
hidden in her bosom as sho did In tho
wilds of America. Police Constable Uren
knew Caroline Ann well by report, and
ho did not mean to bo conciliated. So
when she dusted a chair and. offered it to
him, he said sternly: "No, thank you. 1
can hear bettor standing." This seemed
to upset Caroline Ann. Sho had a dim
feeling that If she could stand over him
as she talked, sho could cow him; but he
stood before her as straight as a ramrod.
'"What "ave you to say for yourself?"
said he, for ho heard a suppressed cough
Caroline Ann folded her arms in a de
termined way, atrodo out into the middle
of tho room, and stood in a fighting atti

"Isri!" answered tho constable, relaps
ing Into his native tongue; "she be a rela

for her as there be a policeman in the

or two. She's a real varmint, I can, tell
'e,.and no mistake." ....
"Stop that!" said Constable Urcn, se
verely, as an nnswer to a giggle nt tho
door as well as to the woman beforo him.
"You're only making matters worse for
yourself In court by and by. What I.nm
here for is to know why you assaulted the
"For the reason T gave you." answered
Caroline Ann, sullonly. "She's a real
she-dcvll, and enough to upect a world, to
say notnln' of a village."
Police Constable Urcn rapped hard on
the table, for he hqard a titter outside,
and he knew that half tho village was
there by now. It was tlmo to be getting
to facts. A woman outside muttered:
"Sho've got ho there, mire enough," and
so put him on his mcttlo.
"Tell your story, Airs. Stevens." ho said,
sternly, "without calumny." He almost
heard the "oh!" of wondor and admira

stamped, her foot savagely as sho said

took out a little notebook and pencil.
"Well,"' he asked, "what moro?"
" "Taint much to tell, any way," she
continued. ' I bound up the poor worm

Curious and Ingenious Surgical
Mechanism' Is Brought
The story of a wealthy woman who
called In a surgeon of repute to perform
an operation upon the pet dog that had
swallowed a marble has called forth much
amusing comment. Tho price paid for
the operation was as great as would have
been demanded had the patient been a
human being, but it was1 paid willingly.
Such Individual eases arc, of course, not
common, but the services of surgeons aro
froquently called Into requisition in the
great zoological gardens of this country
and Europe to have the lives of valuable
animals that hnve suffered serious aecl
dent. Such cases, however, are often at
tended with difficulties. One of these hap

Is set forth In detail In the latest roport of
the New York Zoological society.
A littlo brown Cebus monkey fell and
broke his left arm between the wrist and
elbow. A surgeon was called In, who set
the bone and bandaged tho arm In splints,
so that the setting, would remain firm. All

this was the question which, after a deal
of trouble, was solved as follows: A large
disc of light wood was provided. In tho
center of which a hole was cut, largo
enough to fit around the monkey's neck.
Then the wooden disc was cut In half, and
tho edges furnished with fastenhucs, so
that It was no trouble to close the wooden

published In one of the proceedings of
the society for 1S70. He status that one of
the most puzzling features of anlnal life
la the tendency of animals In captivity to
die Hi pairs or threes. He quotes the case
of two tigers occupying the same cage
One of them fell 111 of an affection peculiar
lo cats, and died. Although tho remaining
animal was in the pink of condition, when
the keeper came next morning to feed the
tigress, he found she had died during the
night. A careful examination was made of
the body, and, asldo from' a very slight
Inflammation of a certain part of the
atopiach, there was no trouble sufficient
to case death. A pair of wolves did the
same, llkevlso three bears, some hyenas
and birds without nunber. Frequently
some animal In a zoo falls 111 and dies,
and Is followed by such succession of
deaths as to dishearten the keepers.
A certain American zoo possessed a fine
herd of buffalo, consisting of a male and
two females, purchased seven cars be
fore, and their large family. For seven
years these animals had been models of
! health; so much so, in fact, ns to give rise
to the saying among the keepers that tho
buffalo could stand anything. Every year
saw the birth of several calves, ajid at
feeding tlmo it was a pleasure to see the
way In which the animals came cavorting
to their food. One day, seven years after
the first-buffalo had reached tho zoo, one
of the animals got sick and died. It was
also noticed that others were looking
droopy. Then, as though struck by a pes
tilence, the animals began dying off from
what appeared fo bo nothing worso than
a slight Irregularity of the digestive ap
paratus, uutll In ono year, the herd was
reduced lo three animals. The keepers,
tho physicians and the zoo director bat
tled manfully with this strange disease,
and succeeded In saving the three that are
still living, although there are other ex
perienced unlmal men who take tho view
that the three" survivors would have lived
without any treatment. Such a thing hap
pened once, In one of the English parka,
where are still preserved a few herds of
the ancient wild cattlo of Europe. The
herd, numbering nearly a hundred, was
reduced to less than twenty, since which
tlmo they -have increased and multiplied
back to the original number. Washing
A Curious Custom.
The Labrador Indians when on a hunt
stalk on In advanco of the train with their
arms, while the women, heavily laden
with provisions and means of shelter,
drag along slowly after. When tho lords
and masters begin to think of food tlmo
or wish In any way to leave some guide as
to their progress for tho sauaws thev
thrust an upright spear or stick In the
snow and draw In the snow the exact line
of the shadow then cast Tho women, toll
ing painfully along, note tho spear and
tho progress of tho shadow, and know
closely the difference of time. They know,
too, whether they dare t? linger for a few
minutes' rest or If they must hastily catch
the stick or spear and hurry on. Chicago

The-football year' was made noteworthy
by the efforts of tho rules committee to
respond to the demand for more open play
arid less danger by revising the rules
radically. Their offorls were attended
with some measure of success. One of the
season's surprises was the great strides
made by the Princeton eleven, which von
the undisputed championship of tho East,
defeating Yale's veteran team. In the
West there was no decision between Mich
igan and Minnesota, their gamo resulting
In a tie, and no olher team appearing to
be In their class. There was distinct dis
appointment in tho showing of the Chi
cago team In the West and of the Har
ard team In the East The crimson elev
en was defcatod by Amherst and Dart
mouth, which have never clalmdd admis
sion lo "leading gridiron circles, although
the New Hnmpshirc team was credited by
Eastern authorities with being one of the
strongest in the country. The only East
versus West game was played by Chicago
at West Point and resulted in favor of
the soidlers on a technicality.
