hair, and casting caTernons shadows from
his beetling brows, beneath which those
eyes of his cave forth a red sparkle; and his
bis;, irregular nose dividing his
visage like a spur of a mountain be

grim mouth working and puckering as he
sucked at his black pipe as he sat there in
bis high-backed oaken chair, beside a table
piled up with rare and ancient books, and
strange ornaments from China and India,
and with a small but finely-formed skull
carefully mounted on an ebony stand, and
so placed that it had the air ot whispering

less like an ordinary man than like a wizard

But that fairy-like body the contrast be

singular. An ogre and an elf combined to
form a man that is how you would de

exquisitely modulated tones.
"Canyon judge from the skull of tbe
beauty ot the face?" I exclaimed.
"Perhaps not; at any rate, I do not in this
"Do vou mean to say you actually knew
her?" I demanded, with a chill of the
nerves. Even the most benevolent doctors
will sometimes do odd things that make or
dinary persons' flesh creep.
"Well, at all events, I know she was a
beauty," he said. And, after puffing at his
pipe a while, he continued: "It's a curious
story, and you might as well hear it. You
"Sot Daventry who married Miss Sal ton
stall, the heiress, and went mad?"
"That's the man Edward Daventry.
My specialty is mental diseases, you know,
and I signed the order committing him to
the asylum. That was ten years ago. He
died last week."
"Only last week! I had supposed him
dead for years."
"Death is a name applied indiscrimi
nately to several different phenomena. Now
you knew Daventry who married Miss
Saltonstall; but I knew him before that
event long before. And I happen to know
that Miss Saltonstall was not the first
"Ah! An earlier romance! Do let me
hear about it."
"There is not much to that There was a
girl let us call her Francesca; her family
name does net concern us. She was a
lovely creature, of a style quite unlike Miss
Saltonstall. Daventry was then barely 20;
she a year or two younger. She loved him
with all her heart He well, he conceived
a passion for her. It was understood she
understood that they were to be married.
But she took too much for granted, and
granted too much. You know the way of
the world. There are times when the wo
man is as much to blame as the man. All I
will say is, that this was not one of those
times. Daventry was then a young fellow
in a country town, with no prospects in par
ticular. An unexpected circumstance gave
him a good opportunity to enter business in
Kew York, and he went, leaving Francesca
behind. Well, it had to be! And within a
year he had the satisfaction, such as it was,
of hearing that she was dead."
How the doctor's eyes did glow! He
looked terrible at that moment
'Daventry had, I believe, already made
the acquaintance of Miss Saltonstall, and it
was not lone before they were openly en
rared to be married. There was no ambigu
ity about.tbat arrangement You may sup
pose, if you like, that Daventry was really
in love this time. At all events, he acted as
if he were. He hardly ever let the girl out of
his sight She couldn't complain of lack of
devotion. They were married a great wed
ding. You remember it. A handsome couple.
All New York looking on. All the girls en
vying her; all the young fellows him. So ofi"
tfiey went on their honeymoon."
Ine doctor sucked hard and fast at his
black pipe, until he, and the little white
skull, and the pile of antique volumes, were
all enveloped in a gray mist of smoke.
"Daventry became proverbial for work.
Everything he took hold ot went well. His
wife bad a million to "her dowry, so there
was no need for him to work; but be did
work, and it was thought greatly to his
credit that be did so. He went into all sorts
of schemes: they all turned to gold as soon
as he touched them. He kept a fine house
in town, another at the seaside, another in
California. He and his wife were always
on the top in society, always stirring, al
ways entertaining; and yet Daventry never
lost hii grip on any of his schemes. People
said there never was snch a man; wonderful
head! astonishing genius! They had no

were, they arranged to give a great recep

months in advance. Preparations going on

hardest to get. Favors for the dance cost
enough to buy a city lot gold, silver and
diamonds Eight hundred people came;
the best in New York, and only the best.
Until 12 o'clock Daventry and his wife
stood under a marriage bell receiving their
guests. There they stood, smiling, bowing
and shaking hands, the type and example
of blessed and prosperous wedlock. Ah, a

The manner in which Dr. Hoknagel gave
the ensuing dialogue amazed me. No
trained actor could have done it better. His
marvelous voice accommodated itself to
every intonation. Closing my eyes I could
have believed that the speakers stood before
"He brought the wine, and she received
the glass trom him. Her voice, when she
spoke, had gone to his heart; surely he had

lovely she was! Her dress, too, was exqui

and figure of a young goddess. Diamonds

before he married! He had associations

down toward her.

was spilled. He knew that ring! 'Where
did you get that amethyst?'

unnoticed. No one seemed to heed them.

on roses. The door opened before them.and
they went out. Her carriage stood at the

"He loved, she loved him; what T?as the

along swiftly, on easy springs. They were
leaving all things all care and trouble
behind. He bent to kiss her cheek; but
she put up her hand with tenderest co
quetry, "'Not vet, Edward,' she murmured.
"At length the carriage stopped; they
were at her home. They alighted; he fol
lowed her up the steps, and into the softly
lighted hall. As the door closed behind
them, she turned to smile on bim a smile
of love and invitation. She went on into
an inner room, pushing aside the heavy cur

was warm, sumptuous, luxurious, softly
lighted. In the middle ot the room she
turned upon him with an enchanting

"His lips were almost on hers. Suddenly
she lifted her two hands to the sides of her

The doctor stopped and re-lit his pipe.
My eyes fell on the skull beside him.

"A mere hallucination, of course," said
the doctor, chuckling. "Daventry's brain

"Why, in a deserted house on the other

been occupied by this same Francesca. How

about this hallucination for years afterward;
and when he died, the other day, he shrieked
out with his last breath that he was being

"Why do you ask? That is her skull.

MARKETS BY TOE.
Sensational Stories Circulated In tbo Wheat
Pit, bat They Fall to DIatnrb Prices
Corn Weaker and Oats Firm.
Chicago Wheat A fair speculative busi
ness was transacted to-day, but trading was in
spurts, and most of the session the market
ruled quiet. The feeling was a little unsettled,
though the impression was that a prqminent
trader has been selling as much as possible on
the quiet, and this created a rather weaker
foeling in the December future than tbe May,
the latter again commanding a wider premium.
Tbe market tbe past few days has acted queer
ly, and operators don't know just how to
The opening was about tbe same as yester
day's closing, and prices were advanced
slightly then declined ljo for December and'
c for May, improved again, and closed at the
same as yesterday. The export movement for
the week was the largest f or many davs an d
gave hope andencoufagenient to the bull inter
est, but outside speculation seems to be lack
ing. The exports of wheat and flour from both
cuasts for the six days were reported at 2,591,
000 bushels, against 2.131,000 bushels the
previous week and 2,082,600 bushels the cor
respoding week last year. Minneapolis re
ports a large demand for fionr there, and sales
of 58,000 sacks.
On the top oi thi3 came tbe report that three
mills had shut down in St. Louis. One reison
given fur doing so was tbat tbe mills could not
sell their flour; another, tbat it was owing to a
scarcity ot wheat, and still another dispatcn
said that only one mill bad shut down, and that
only temporarily to make repairs, and to cap
the climax a dispatch was received stating that
45,000 sacks had been sold there for shipment.
The receipts in the Northwest oontlnue lib
eral, aggregating at Minneapolis and Dulnth
200,000 bushels larger than last week's arrivals.
It is estimated tbat the visible supply will show
an increase of about 1,000,000 bushels. Euro
pean markets were quoted steady and firm.
Corn was fairlj active and weaker, especially
the near deliveries, which were offered quite
freely and lower prices were established. The
easier tone was attributed to clear and cool
weather ana prospects of larger receipts. The
approaching close of navigation, together with
tne expected larger movement, increased the
offerings of December and January, and there
was a general widening of the premium of
May over these deliveries. The market opened
a shade under the closing prices of yesterday,
was weak and gradually declined fie for the
near months and I44c for May, rallied a trifle
and closed with December and January c
and May ic lower than yesterday.
Oats were quiet and easy early, but later be
came steadier and closed firm. There was lib
eral selling by scattering holders, but good
Duylng by sborts, especially those who have
sold May against holdings of cash property,
but, having disposed of the latter, wc re anxious
to cover their trades. Their purchases gave
the market what little strength it had.
Mess Pork There was rather more trading,
yet confined within moderate limits: prices
ruled 1012c lower on the deferred deliveries,
while the near deliveries showed little change..
Lard The tradmc was moderate and the fee'
ing easy. Prices were 57Kc lower for Novem
ber, while tbe other deliveries were compara

A EEYIEW OF TRADE.
Week's Produce Trade Unfavorably
Affected by Bains.
DAIRY PRODUCTS DRIFT UPWARD.
Largest Hog Receipts for a Tear Past and
a Sharp Decline.
PR0YISI0NS ALREADY AT HARD PAN
Onus or Pittsburg dispatch.
Saturday, November 16, 1889. j
The week's weather has been unfavorable
to any active movement in general produce
trade. Dairy products are a shade firmer
than they were a week ago, and the outlook
now is for higher prices. Cheese factories
are generally closing' up tor -the season, and
an advance will very soon be due. 'A o
advance in creamery butter at Elgin on
Monday brought no changes to onr markets,-
except that it stiffened prices. Soft weather
has held eggs down to tbe prices which
ruled last week. As there is unusual'
scarcity of a choice Article, the advent of
sharp weather will no doubt send prices
Freights Too High.
Eeceiptsofpotatoesfrom far Western points
have ceased, freight hills spoiled profits
and the potatoes now coming to onr markets
are in the main from Ohio. Our nearby
crop would cut a sorry figure in meeting
wants of trade. Many farmers of this sec
tion are now obtaining supplies from the
city. The quality of potatoes received shows
some improvement of late and markets are
Cabbage Is very plenty 'and slow. Florida
oranges are in good supply and quiet. Lemons
are dnll and lower.
Supply of game the past week has been
beyond demand, and the movement has been
slow at concessions on rates of a week ago.
Soft weather has been the depressing influence
The grape season is practically nearing its
end. Though still to be had, their movement
Is slow. Very choice apples are in better lie-
mana, dui common give no Signs ot revival.
Groceries That Move.
The feature for the week in grocery lines has
been the upward movement of sugar and
coffee. Roasted coffee has been on tbe verge
of a rise for a week past, and its failure to go
np nntil the Brazilian tronbles came to a head
disappointed tbe calculation of onr jobbers.
At the c advance, package coffee is relatively
too low as compared with the price of tbe green
article. Spft weather, daring the past week
does not appear to have curtailed tbe wholesale
grocery trade. The movement has been active
all along the line, and In the amount of goods
handled the week has made one of the best re
cords of tho season.
Cereals Are Steadier.
It will be seen by reference to onr domestic
market column that receipts in this line ha've
greatly declined. Against 359 carloads received
week before last bat 222 loads were bulletined
at the Grain Exchange this week; As a result
markets are steadier, particularly for oats,
wheat and flour. Corn is scarce and firm at a
shade higher prices than last Saturday. The
feeling Is general among grain dealers tbat bot
tom prices hare been reached, and tbat the
worst is past.
Northwestern millers advise their customers
here tbat flour orders cannot be duplicated on
last week's prices. The time being nearor
the closing of lake navigation, freight rates on
flour will be increased 6c per barrel after the
20th of November between Minneapolis and
Chicago. And between the latter point and
Pittsburg a freight rise is also expected, in all
making the lay down price here about 10c per
barrel higher than heretofore.
The total receipts of hogs in Chicagp the past
week were In ronnd numbers 180,000 head, a
daily average of 30.000. On one day 45,000 head
were received. The week's run has been the
largest for 12 months or more. The outside
prlce'at Chicago to-day was S3 80 to S3 85. At
an live siock centers tne run of hogs has been
big, and tbe drift ot markets bas been steadily
downward, amounting in the week to 25c to 30a
per cwt. In spite of this decline provision mar
kets bold up well, as they had for some time
been down to hard pan. There is no room for a
decline in hog products without loss to the

FUUbnrir Breaking- Away From the Crude
Methods of the Founders.'
Pittsburg has Teached a critical point in
her career. She has finished one stage of
her progress, and is starting out upon
another. Old Pittsburg is behind; new
Pittsburg is before. Her past has been hon
orable, full of noble achievements in peace
and war, but the future promises to crown
her with still brighter laurels.
It is possible that visions of a great city,
springing from the straggling village which
they had planted at "tbe forks of the Ohio,"
may have sometimes crossed the minds of tbe
rude forefathers ot this! great, center of life
and industry; but If so, they gave no sign, but
kept on In their simple ways, content with the
rewards that fell to them, and leaving tbe
fruition of tbefr toils and privations to be en
joyed by their descendants. The resnlt was a
town without purpose or design la Its building,
so far as order and convenience were con
cerned. Houses were built before streets were
laid out, compelling tbem to be carried over
devious courses, winding in and ont to avoid
obstructions, and Involving them in a maze of
crookedness and uncertainty as to wbere
they began and ended, wbich has been the
wonder of every succeeding generation. It
may be urged tbat "the lay of the land" was
against the builders an d street makers of that
period, bnt still it Is clear that if. they had paid
more attention to straight lines better results
would have been secured. ,
Communities, like Individuals, have their
ebbs and flows seasons of exultation and de
dression of prosperity and reverse. Pittsburg,
having emerged from the disadvantages of her
early environments, is preparing to taice a
fresh start. The close conservatism of her
founders has given place to a broaderand more
aggressive policy, which is producing good re
sults. Her light is no longer hid nndera
bushel, but flashes out so as to be seen of all
men. Great natural advantages and resources
are being utilized and held ont to attract popu
lation and capital, and with such success that
her growth is a matter of surprise. Her com
mercial importance keeps pace with her
growth. Her financial institutions are among
tbe most substantial In tbe conn
try, and they are backed up
by an industrial system so extensive and diversi
fied as not only to insure their permanency but
gradual enlargement to meet the exigencies of
