Hail is -a natural concomitant of the
tornado when the absolute humidity
of the air is large, because then the
aqueous vapor in the air is carried bj
the ascending tornado currents into
the high levels of the atmosphere and
congealed in the snow cloud. The
formation of hail in the upper ail
sufficient to make, when precipitated
to the earth, a bank of conglomerate
ice crystals covering the ground " tc
the depth of five feet in places " is a
striking illustration of the forces oi
condensation. As such condensation
in summer is impossible by the inter
mixture of mere surlace currents, its
occurrence clearly shows that hail is
formed at great altitudes, where aero
nauts almost invarially find the cold
far below the free ing point.
As yet no adequate theory of the
formation of haihtones has been es
tablished, and it is difficult to under
stand how they can remain so long
suspended in the air. But their con
nection with the ascending currents of
tornadoes, which are known to be
powerful enough to lift ponderous
bodies, is a su.Jicient explanation of
the latter phenomenon.
During a recent stcrm at Barton,
England, ice fell from the clouds in
such quantities that "on the follow
ing day it lay in some of the field
ditches two feet deep." The ice fall
in the Iowa storm is reported to have
"covered the fence tops and the
next day the railroad was blockaded
by the frozen masses. Such ice crystals,
which sometimes weigh two or three
ounces, falling from great elevations,
would often strike with deadly effect
did' they not in falling mett with
resistance from the ascensional storm
currents. Happily, however, as these
heavy hailstones cat) only be produced
through the agency of ascending air
currents, the latter are alway present
to break the forte of their fall. New

THE HOUSE OPPOSITE.
At the death of her brother "Wilfred,
Vivia de Forest felt broken-hearted.
He had been her only near living rel
ative. The news of his death had
come to her with fearful suddenness.
Called to a "Western city for the pur
pose of superintending some business
connected with the estate of his late
father, "Wilfred (who sometimes,
though rarely, had periods of dis
sipation) was shot in a barroom quar
rel. Poor Vivia had suffered terribly.
The funeral was over now, and the
dull quietude of her present life had a
monotony which almost made her
long for the more exciting painfulness
of the previous week.
A di&tant cousin of hers, an elderly
lady, had come to live with her in the
large family mansion, which was now
Vfvia's exclusive property. But old
Winifred Carr was rather doleful corn
pan'. To-day it had rained dismally from
dawn until late in the afternoon. Vi
via could not fix her thoughts very
long upon the books she was reading.
Tn spite of herself they would some
how wander back to recollections of
her dear lost brother, of their childish
life together, and of the untimely
death which had parted them now.
Several t'mes during the day Vivia
went to the window and looked out
upon the rainy street.
In the house directly opposite was
one special window, where, ever since
morning, she had seen a girl of her
The girl was very pale, and wore an
expression of undoubted worriraent.
Sometimes Vivia thought that she
gazed toward her own window, with a
wistful, appealing look.
She had known, in years past, the
previous occupants of this house, but
it had recently passed into other hands,
and she had never heard the name of
the people who had taken it. Xow
and then tho pale girl whose sad looks
had to-day attracted her notice, had
been before seen by Vivia, while as
cending or descending the stoop. But
she had never seemed as troubled as at
"I wonder what her trouble is,"
thought Vivia. "Ah, I am sure it is
not as bitter as mine!"
She started while this thought was
crossing her brain, for the girl oppo
site had made with one hand a quick,
beckoning gesture, that there seemed
no mistaking. And after having made
such gesture she had hastily left the
In about ten minutes she returned
again, however. Vivia was waiting
for her. If ever girl had a kindly
heart in her breast, that girl was Vi
via de Forest. She now made signs
which plainly indicated:
"Do you wish me to come over?"
An eager nodding of the head gave
emphatic affirmative to this silent
"She is in trouble," thought Vivia.
"I may do some good; I will go!"
The rain had stopped. It was now
nnost nightfall. Vivia threw a dark
shawl about her shoulders to defend
her against the raw December wind,
and ran across the street. She had not
to ring the bell. The door was opened
as she reached the top step of the
stoop. The pale girl opened it herself.
"It was so good of you to come," she
said, while her dark, sad eyes swept
Vivia's face as they stood in the hall
"I hope I can be of some service to
you," Vivia answered. "You seem to
"be in trouble. I know myself what
trouble is. Pray tell me how I can
They were presently seated togeth
er, and the girl had taken one of Vi
via's. hands between both her own.
"I have a brother, here in this
house," she said, "who is pursued by
the police. He wishes to escape.
Once in a foreign land, he can elude
tholaw's vigilance. I am quite alone,
being an orphan, and only having Hugh
to love and care for out of all the
world. I wanted to fly with him, but
that, he says, is impossible. He will
not hear of it, though he promises to
write for me to 'oin him after he is
safely beyond pursuit."
"And what crime has he commit
ted?" asked Vivia.
"Oh, it was no crime," answered the
girl. "He has been falsely accused of
"Falsely accused," murmured Vivia;
"how terrible! Have they convicted
"Iso ; he has not been tried yet. He
was in St. Louis only a short time ago,
when a friend of his, from whom he
had but recently parted, was found
killed in his noted. Hugh was arrest
ed on the charge rhaTing murdered
him, but escaped."
"And why should he not have faced
his accusers?" questioned Vivia. "Was
he afraid to do so?"
"2fo," said a voice in the doorway.
Vivia looked in the direction whence
he voice had come.
A very handsome young man, though
worn and haggard-looking, had just
entered. It was Hugh.
"I see, Ella," he said, " that you are
trying to enlist the sympathies of this
lady in my behalf. But have you
thought of what a reckless thing you
"You need not feel any fear of me
sir," said Vivia, quietly. "I should
have no motive in ltrayinjr-you, even
though I thought you guilty."
"Hugh is as innocent as I am!" ex
claimed his sister, in a plaintive, tear
The young man was now close at
Vivia's side. The dimness of the room
had not previously let her see how
handsome he was. He fixed his darkly-brilliant
eyes intently on Vivia's
face, and said:
"If I had passed through a trial 1
might have been sure that circumstan
tial evidence would have convicted
me. Can you understand this?'
"Yes," said Vivia, "but surely, if
you are innocent, it would have been
better to suffer conviction than go
through the rest of your life a fugitive
"I do not think so!" cried Ella at
this point. "I wold have him live at
More than a hour elapsed before
Vivia went home again. And she
visited that house many times more
during the next few weeks. Both she
and Ella believed that her exits and
entrances were watched, and that
Hugh's presence there was suspected
by certain spies posted in the neighbor
hood, but they were not by any means
By this time Vivia had silently
admitted to her own heart that she
loved Hugh Robertson. It had been
"love at first sight" with her. His
beauty and his melancholy fate had
both produced disastrous results with
her young, romantic soul.
She had determined to help him to
escape. She was a girl of strong will
and inflexible determination. One day
she said to him:
"I have been working out a plan
The house directly in the rear of yours
is mine. I purchased it yesterday.
To-morrow night it will be quite
vacant. You can cross by the back
fences, and get into tho next street
through that house. There will be a
carriage waiting for you a few doors
, below. It will drive you wherever
you wish to be driven."
Hugh's face lighted with a softly
grateful smile. Ella threw both arms
about ViYia's neck and rapturously
On the following night they all three
met for a few last words of farewell,
just before Hugh's venture was tried.
In the back garden a ladder was
ready, by which Hugh would climb
into the garden of the other house.
Hugh, Vivia and Ella all stood in a
room which communicated with the
rear piazza. Hugh first said farewell
to Ella, who clung for a few minutes
sobbing about his neck. Then he
turned to Vivia. He was frightfully
"What I have to say," he began,
"Ella ought not, perhaps, to hear. It
may kill her. It will probably give
you, Vivia de Forest, an intense an
guish. I have deceived my sister up
to this moment. I am not innocent. I
shot the man of whose murder I am
accusedshot him openly enough, in a
barroom in St. Louis. He insulted
me! I was very much enraged! We
had both been drinking. There is no
doubt that I was terribly to blame!"
"Hugh!" now broke from Ella's lips,
"this cannot be! You are deceiving
"Would I were!" he murmured;
"and would, too, that this were all I
had to tell. But it is not all. Vivia

I looked on you I loved you. But it

"Ah, why did you not remember
when you first met me," Hugh Rob

Vivia's lips. The next instant she and
Ella were clinging together, as if for j from his trip to Yellowstone Park, much re

tures. Each had been cruelly de.
ceived. Each now woke with horror
to a realization of the truth.
"Farewell!" they now heard Hugh
call to them, while they stood with
heads bowed on each other's shoulder.
"God guard both of you if we should
never meet again."
They heard him open the window
and go out into the garden. Then
came quite a long silence. And then
a gruff voice, whose tones seemed to
curdle their blood, called out amid the
still night: "Stop, or I will fire."
There was no answer. Perhaps
three seconds of silence followed, and
then a keen pistol-shut mug ouf onthe
tranquil night air. After that there
was a long, heavy groan.
"He has been shot!" cried Vivia,
looking with dilated eyes into her
companion's ghastly face.
It as true. Vivia's plans, shrewd

watched. A neighboring house had
been taken by the detectives as a post

Village Government in Russia.
Every commune, every mir is gov
erned just the way it wants to be.
The Russian mir is the perfect realiza
tion of the perfect commune dreamed
of by certain Occidental socialists.
The property of the commune is indi
visible, and as each has always more
land than it is possible to cultivate, a
regular conference is held every year
and a decision made as to what part of
the soil shall be planted and what pro
ducts shall be cultivated. Every soul
in the village is employed in the work
and after harvest the profits are equal
ly divided. The "mir" has the privi
lege of banishing lazy or worthless
characters. If a crime be committed
all the inhabitants are held responsible
until the guilty party is found. In
the same way every member of the
community is held responsible for the
payment of taxes. But in practice
things do not run so smoothly by any
means as the theory of the system
might lead one to suppose. There are
plenty of lazy folk, turbulent and dan
gerous characters, ambitious men, and
over all these tower the employes of
the central government, who rule ty
rannically and make the peasantry pay
them heavily for overlooking certain
things or pretending to ignore deficien
cies. Paris Figaro.
