A Fresh Whiff of, Passion from Amelia.
There was going to he another]
.Outside, a gravy-gray mist was'
pread over the weather, and Bar
ara's dog, Wilful, was baying in
a sad, pink voice ai the smell of:
cabbage that was wafted up from
the negro quarters. The moon lay
like a cheap peppermint wafer on
the vaulting arch of a poorly pain
sky, and monotones of misery
groaned -through the stiff pine
trees as the north wind traveled
without a ticket toward the rosy
"Two lumps of sugar in'inyl
coffee again." said Dering, as he
zed across the table at Barbara!
ut of his green velvet eyes.
Barabara helped .herself to a
adishin an apparently none ha
lt manner, but her heart was
hizzing round like the inside of
; ruptured telephone. She was
ginning to hate Jook.
"You know,"continued Dering,
should know by this time, un
ssyou have an old sponge in
our head instead of a brain, that
y coffee is ruined if it has more
than one lump of sugar. And
that reminds me that your hair
looks like the devil, fixed the way
""'you have it."
Barbara in her emotion inhaled
her radish instead of swallowing
it, a nd sneezed so hard in conse
quence that sho broke the mirror
over the mantel and set the
chandeliers tinkling all through
the house. The wind soughed in
:^.the chimney, and the chimney
soughed back at the wind. There
was a yellow melancholy spangled
with mauve-colored patches of |
despair spread over the universe,
. and Barbara v as torn by a tumult.
x "If I needed sweetening as much
as you do," she said . to Jock. "I
would drink twelve lumps of sugar
-J in my coffee instead of one." *
Barbara's repartee always gave
Jock the malaria. After hearing
--fiorlast remark he ran his robust
fingers through his iridescent
locks and amused himself for the
next ten minutes throwing bread
balls at the portraits of Barbara's
"I won't stand this any longer,"
he shrieked at last, jumping eight
feet into the air and kicking
'yard of plaster off the ceiling, "If
yen only had the excuse of being
beautiful, why then"--Barbara^
rose from her chair with the grace
and noiselessness of white smoke.
The flame that shot from her eyes
was 60 intense that Dering was al
most prompted to ring a fire alarm.
Her white throat swelled like ?
small boy's balloon and her pur
plish lips curled into an express
ion of glittering, hard-boiled
. "If I had a flat-iron in my hand,"
she hissed, "I would kill you with
"Why doL't you use one of those
hot biscuits?" asked Dering,
J sneeringly; "they're heavy
B arbara swirled round like
cyclone, and, casting one flashing
look of supreme hatred over her
perfectly modeled shoulder, she
flew from the^room, and Dering
? heard her bounding up the stairs
'five -steps at a time.
"I ' like to see her angry," he
muttered, after lighing one os his
imported eight-inch five-cent
cigars. "I always notice that rage
. brings out her seal-brown freckles,
and, as a matter of fact, it was
those seal-brown freckles that first
won my heart."
As for Barbara, she was chewing
nxp the tiger rug in her bedroom,
after having murdered the gold
fish and the canary bird. Sudden
ly she sprang to her feet and struck
her nose until it bled against a
... dark spot on the wall, over which,
y on a silver plate, was the inscrip
tion, This spot was made by sweet
acented pomade from Val's back

gil Then, leteiug down her crimson
uris and taking off her boots, she
gan to soliloquize. .
?I loathe my husband, We
have been married aiuoo yesterday,
ana ho is distasteful to me. What
did I ever see in him to admire?
He has big feet and his ears stand
out. I will write to Dakota for a
divorce at once, for if I am bound
to this monster another week I
shall have the hydrophobia. Ah,

work's of Charles Dickens, but I
hada very poor opinion of the
man." said L. C. Courtney, now
stopping at the Lacledo. "Dick
ens was a crank, of a very offen
sive class. Many peculiarities
may properly be excused in a man
of genius, but boundless egotism
and bad taste are not of the num
ber. When the author of the
'Pickwick Papers' visited America
he succeeded by his boorish man
ners, in disenthralling thousands
of his worshipers on this side of
the Atlantic. He dressed 'loud,'
andhis manners were even more
stunning than his dress. He was
a great pedestrian, and took long
tramps every morning. When he
was in Washington I met him one
morning on the steps of the Capitol.,

A RIGHTEOUS DECISION.
The N. Y. Supreme Court Lays
Down the Law as to Bicycles.
The law of the road as to bicy
cles is declared in an interesting
opinion recently delivered at the
general term of the supreme court
of New Yo-k. A bicycle rider was
passing a driveway in Washington
park, Albany, going at the rate of
three miles an hour, when he met
a man driving a buggy and going
at the rate of six miles an hour.
The bicycle rider kept at the
extreme right of the road close to
the margin, but the driver of the
buggy did not turn to the righ}, as
required by the law pf the road,
and'ran into the bicycle, causing
injury to the rider. The rider of
the biccle brought suit against the
driver of the buggy, and the gen
eral term has sustained the verdict
which he obtained foi the injuries
done to him. J The defendant, the
driver of the buggy, endeavored to
escape responsability on the plea
that the plaintiff might have
escaped injury by tunring to the
left when he saw that the buggy
wasiabout to strike him. Judge
Putman says that the defendant
need only have turned his buggy a
foot or two to one side to have
avoided the collision. The bicycle
rider, being on the right side of
the road, was justified up to the
last moment in believing that the
defendant would obey the law
and turn to the right ; and the last
moment it was not negligence on
his part not to turn to the left,
because the buggy driver might at
the same moment have turned to
right and a collision thus have
occurred for which the bicyole rider
would have been responsible The
rule is thus established that if the
bicycle rider keeps as far as possi
ble to the right of the road, he is
notjlegally required to take other
extraordinary means of escaping
from collision with a rapidly
approaching vehicle, the driver of
which might easily turn to the
right,anjLay^ -T -, ,
What the Eyes Denote.
One can always trust the gray,
full orb that looks clearly out
from under lashes long and
straight. The gray eye with curling
lashes is a certain sign of a frivolous
nature, while a small oval brown
optic, flecks of contrasting color
hear the pupil, indicates a |higly
nervous temperament with literary
tendencies. This eye is always
overshadowed by sadness when in
repose, and is such a one as many
poets and painter have possessed.
Large, liquid black eyes denote
a sympathetic nature easily moved
but with no great depth of feeling.
Eyes of whatever hue, if s?t close
together, tell to the world that
their owner is not to be truste.
Beware the shifting gance-it
threatens danger. A full, dark
blue eye is the very tye of honest
intention and resolute purpose'
yet a light, watery one betrays a
weak vacillating nature, easily
influenced for good or evil but
more often tending toward the
the latter rather than the former
course. The eye of keen perception
and rare ability is the deep brown
with no mellowness but a look
on its surface as of high polish.
This eyes you through and is the
index of a nature calculating, cold
and hard in business dealing, yet
stanch and true in its friendships.
The Result of a Dream.
Before Watts, the discoverer of
the present mode of making shot
had notable dream, induced bj
overindulgence in stimulents, the
manufacture of shot was a slow,
laborious and, consequently, costly
process. Great bars of lead had to
be pounded into sheets of a thick
ness nearly equal to the diameter
of the shot desired. These sheets
had then to be cut into little cubes,
placed in a revolving barrel, and
there rolled- until, by constant
friction, the edges wore off from
the little cubes and they became
Watts had often racked his
rain trying to discover some bet
tea and less costly scheme, but in
vain. Finally, after spending an
evening with some boon com
panions at an alehouse, he went
home, went to bed and soon fell
a sleep. His slumbers, however,
were disturbed by unwelcome
dreams, in one of which he was
out with th? "boys," and as they
were stumbling home it began to
rain shot-beautiful globules of
polished, sdining lead-in such
numbers that he and his com
panions had,to seek sheller.
In the morning Watts remem
beredhis curious dream and it
obtruded itself on his mind ?di
day. He began to wonder what
shape molten lead would assume
in falling through the air, and
finally, to set his mind at rest, he
ascended to the top of the steeple
of the church of St. Mary at Rad
cliffe, and dropped slowly and
regulary a ladleful of molten, lead
into the moat below. Descending,
he took from the bottom of the.
shallow pool several- handsful of
most perfect shot he had ever seen.:
Watts1 fortune was made, for from
this exploit emanated the idea of
the shot tower* wh ich has ever
since been the only means em
ployed in the manufacture of the
little missiles so 'important in
war and spot.-~Boiton Common
A Story of Six Mules.
"I saw an odd sight in Luzerne
county a few days," said E. B.
Coxe, of Scranton, to C. I.
Magee, of Pittsburg, and. one or
two i others in the Fifth Avenue
Hotol, New York City, recently.
..Six mules that had for four
years hauled cars in the lower
workings of a colliery, to and

flooding of the mine on account of

had seen no light stronger than
the flicker of the little Davy lamps
the miners carried. The sun was
in the zenith when they .reached

was as clear as crystal.

flood of strong light, and kept
them rigtly closed while they
