A general banking- business is done by
the human system, because the blood de
posits in its vaults whatever wealth we may
gain from day to day. This wealth is laid
up against "a rainy day " as a reserve fund
-we're in a condition of healthy prosperity
if we have laid away sufficient capital to
draw upon in the hour of our greatest need.
There is danger in getting thin, because it's
a sign of letting down in health. To gain
in blood is nearly always to gain in whole
some fi ssh. The odds are in favor of the
germs of consumption, grip, or pneumonia,
if our liver be inactive and our blood im
?ure, or if our flesh be reduced below a
ealthy standard. What is required is an
increase in our germ-fighting strength. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery enriches
the blood and makes it wholesome, atops
thc waste of tissue and at the same time
builds up the strength. A medicine which
will rid the blood of its poisons, cleans'.- and
invigorate the great organs of the body,
vitalize the system, thrill the whole being
with new energy and make permanent work
of it, is surely a remedy of great value. But
when we make a positive statement that ?jS
per cent of all cases of consumption can., if
taken in the early stages of the disease, be
CURED with the " Discover}', " it seems like
a bold assertion. All Dr. Pierce asks is that
you make a thorough investigation and
satisfy yourself of the truth of his assertion.

. The most wonderful cannons on rec
ord are those which are described by
Brydone,, whoso travels in Sicily and
Malta won well-deserved renown to
wards tho end of the last century.
Many facts and stories he recounts
that seem strangely old-world to us,
though the date is little more than a
hundred years ago, so grandly did the
French revolution transform Europe.
Malta was full of wonders more or
less droll while the Knights held it.
Bnt nothing equalled the stono gnus.
Everybody knows that the fortifica
tions were cut out of tb? solid rock,
bnt Brydone was right in saying that
a kind of ordinance used to defend
them was unknown to all the world
. As we understand his description,
thc knights left a great block of stone
where they hollowed out an embrasure
in the cliff, which afterwards they
shaped and bored in the form of a
gigantic mortar. These engines con
tained a whole barrel of gunpowder.
That shoveled in, they plngged it with
a great piece of wood, fitted exactly to
tho bore, as wadding, and loaded up
with cannon balls, shells and other
About fifty of these remarkable
guns commanded the spots which 1
hostile ship was most likely to ap
proach. "The mouths of somo are
six feet wide, and they are able to
throw 10,000 pounds' weight of balls
or stones." The range is not stated,
but the falling projectiles covered au
area of tho over 300 square yards.
The tall, graceful girl's thoughts
wore with her suitor.
"I wonder," she mused, "what ho
takes me for?"
Her father divined her meaning and
"Tho sum," he observed, "is quite
satisfactory-much less, I may say
than I expected he would ask. Yes. '
His eyes rested upon the glowing
coals and he was seemingly unaware
that she was looking at him intensely.

Nine Styles In a Century.
"Though the fashion in woman's
dress has changed a hundred times in
a hundred years," said a young lady
of observation to a writer for the New
York Sun, "it has been a change of
detail rather iban of style, while of
changes of costume, that is, of dress
which can be said to mark a historical
epoch, there have been but two. Sim
ilarly ia men's clothing there has been
but one radical change of costume
during the century-that from the
breeches to the trousers, with the in
terregnum of the pantaloons. The
change in woman's attire, which was
sufficiently radical to be called a
change of costa me, occurred in 1819-20,
when the classical renaissance, with
its immodesty, its single garment, and
its waist under the shoulders,went out,
and woman became tho bodiced ned
.petticoated creature that you know her
"Of styles as I understood the terra
that is, changes of distinctive fashion
in woman's garb, there have only been
nine during tho past 100 years, which
I think is greatly to her credit. What
ore they? Well, that's rather a hard
question to answer. Let me see, now
"From 1795 to 1819 or 1820 was the
era of the short waist.
"From 1820 to 1825 were the days
of the middle waist, short dress, no
sleeves below tho shoulders, or elbows
at the farthest, and natural shoulders.
"From 1825 to 1835 there was a dis
tinctly marked spell of broad shoulders,
big sleeves and bell skirts. In fact
our present fashions have been consid
erably based on that decade.
"From 1835 to 1843 there were
sloping shoulders and big full skirts.
"From 1843 to 1865 there was the
reign of the crinoline, tho longest rule
of a fashion that ever prevailed,
"From 18G5 to 1882 was a period of
evolution. The train grew into being,
tho skirts shrank little by little, grow
ing slimmer and slimmer, until the
outlines of the figure were once moro
"From 1882 to 1887 was the period
of the bustle-just that.
"From 1887 to 1892 was the fashion
of the paniers and princesse dress.
"With 1892 came in there-establish
ment of big sleeves, and I'm sure that
you'll agree with me that there never
was a style so fetching as that with
which we make ourselves beautiful for
you today. But that's a peculiarity
of all fashion. That which is worn is
the fashion, and that which is tho
fashion is so becoming that we won

have worri*?nything elso."

The young man with the blue neck

Mildmay was not particularly partial
to her husband's stepmother. "I took

"Hester is quite right," said Mrs.
Rufus Mildmay, who came in at that
moment, a handsome brunette, iu a

tvith black velvet-rather a contrast to
tho neat, calico gown which her
mother-in-law was accustomed to wear

Tho stepson, whom she loved with
is fond a devotion as if he had been
iier own child, had married a beauti

So far all was well, although Mrs.
Mildmay had secretly hoped that he
cvould love sweet Alico Actdn, the
?lergymau's daughter, of Polo Hill,
md sottle down on the old farm, as
tus father before him had done.
Yet, if Rufus was happy, she also

Mildmay feared that ho was not, in

It had been his fondest hope that
Iiis mother might be one of his house
bold after his marriage. Mrs. Mild
may had hoped so, too ; but after this,
ber first visit, she felt that the dream
eras in vain.
"Oil and water will not mix," she
said to herself, with a sigh; "and I be
long to a past generation. "
As she left tho store closet, where
Rosamond and her cook wero holding
jounsel as to a proposed dinner party,
she went slowly and spiritlessly up the
breakfast room, where Rufus was read
ing the morning paper before the fire.
"Bufus," she said, a little abruptly,
"I think I had better go back to The
Hemlocks this week."
"Mother!" ho remonstrated.
"I don't think that Rosamond wants
iie here." Rufus Mildmay reddened.
"I hope, mother," hs said," sho has

"It is not natural that sho should

jently. "I might have known it;

"Oh, it's all right, mother!" said

Mrs. Mildmay shook her head.
"I shall see you sometimes," said
me. "If over you aro in trouble,
Rufus-you or Rosamond, either-you
?viii know where to come."
So the old lady went away from the
pretty bijou of a hous3 in Par?bolo
Place, with its bay windows, its Tur
joman portieres and the boxes of
lowers in all the casements.
"Rosamond," said the ycung hus
band, as ho studied over the list of

"Pshaw!" said Rosamond, who wa3

"Do you think, Rosie," said the
voung man, gently, "that it is wise
for us lo go so much into society on

"That ari ow carno from your moth

with another laugh. "She waa always

"And, after all," said Rufus, "what
clo we care for tho fashionable people
to whose houses we go, and whom we

"I would us soon die at once as live

"Do leave oft" lecturing me^ Bufns?
Society is all tfatt makes life worth

And, with a deep sigh, Rufus held
his peace. .
That was a long, lonely winter for
Mrs. Mildmay, senior, at The Hem
Snow set in early ; the river froze
over, as if it were sheeted with iron,
except in the one dismal place down
in the ravine, where a restless pool of
ink-black water boiled and babbled at
the foot of a perpendicular mass of
gray rock, under the shadow of gloomy
evergreens; the sunshine glittered
with frozen brightness over the hills,
and the old lady was often secreotly
sad at heart as she sat all alone in the
crimson parlor, by the big fire place,
where the logs blazed in the twilight.
And as the New Year passed, and
the bitter cold of January took posses
sion of the frozen world, a vagao ap
prehension crept into her heart.
"Something is going to happen,"
she said. "I ara not superstitious, but
there are times when the shadow of
coming events stretches darkly across
the heart. Something is going to hap
And one afternoon, as the amber
sunset, blazed behind the leafless trees,
turning the snowy fields into masses
of molten pearl, she put on her fur
lined hood and cloak.
"I will go and take a walk," said
she. "I shall certainly ' beoome a
hypochondriac if I sit all the time by
the fire and nurse my morbid fanoiea
Sho took a long, brisk walk down by
tho ruins of the old mill, through the
cedar woods, across the frozen swamp,
and then she paused.
"I will come back by the Black
Pool," sho thought. "Itis a wild and
picturesque spot in winter, with
icicles hanging to .the tree boughs,
aud weird ice-effects over the face of'
tho old gray rook."
It was a dark and gloomy place,
funereally shaded by the hemlocks,
which grow there to a giant jsize ; and
when Mrs. Mildmay got beneath their
boughs, she started baot
Was it the illusive glimmering of
the darkening twilight? or was it
really a man who stood close to the
edge of the Black Pool?
"Rufus! oh, Rufus, my son 1"
She was barely in time to catch him
in her arms and drag him back from
tho awful death to which he was hurl
When they reached the ceclar wains
coated parlor, where the blazing logs
cast a ruddy reflection on the red
Moreen curtains, Mrs. Mildmay looked
into her stepson'a face with loving

ly, "do you remember when you used

forget all the years that have passed.
Let us bo child and mother once
So he told her all-of the 'reckless
expenditure on Rosamond's part-his
own, also, ho confessed-which had
woven itself like a fatal web abont his
feet-of tho unpaid bills, the clamor
ing tradesfolk, the threats of -public
exposure, whioh had driven him at
last to the forgery of his employer's ?
signature, in order to free himself
from one or two of tho mest pressing
of these demands.
"And if roy investment in Erie
bonds had proved a success," he said,
eager ly k "I could have taken up every
one of the notes before they came due.
But there was a change in the market,
and now-now the bills will be pre
sented next week, and my villainy will
be patent to all the world! Oh,
mother, mother ! why did you not let
me fling myself into the Black Pool?"
"Rufus,"said his stepmother, "what
is the amount of these-these forged
"Ten thousand dollars!" he an
swered, staring gloomily into the fire.
"Exactly the amount of the Govern
ment bonds which your father left '
me," said Mrs. Mildmay. "They
would have been yours at my death.
They are yours now, Rufus !"
"Mother, you don't mean -"
"Take them,"-said Mrs. Mildmay,
tenderly pressing her lips to his fore
head. "Go to New York the first
thiDg to-morrow morning and wipe
this stain from your life as you would
wipe a few blurred figures from a slato.
And then begin the record of existence
And up in the little room whioh ho
had occupied a3 a child, Rufus Mild
may slep tho first peaceful slumbers
which had descended upon his weary
eyelids for many and many a night.
In the midnight train from New
York came Rosamond Mildmay to The
Hemlocks, with a pale, terrified face
and haggard eyes.
"Oh, mother, mother!" she sobbed;
"where is he-'--my husband ? He has
left me, and the letter on the dressing
table declared that he would never re
turn alive 1 Oh, mother, it is my faut !
I have ruined him 1 Help me, com
fort me, tell me what I shall do !"
Mrs. Mildmay took her daughter-in
law's hand, and led her softly to the
little room where her husband lay
Rosamond drew a long, sobbing
sigh of relief, and clasped her hands
together as if_in muto prayer at the
"Hush !" said the old lady ; "do not
wake him. He is worn out, both in
mind and body. Only bo thankful
that God has given him back to you,
almost from tho grave."
And as the two women sat together
by tho blazzing logs in the crimson
parlor, Mrs. Mildmay told Rosamond
the whole story of tho meeting at tho
"Mother," said Rosamond, with a
quivering lip, "it is my doing. You
warned me of thia long ago. Oh, why
did I give nc heed to ycur words? I
deserve it all !"
"You will co better for the future,
my dear," said the old lady, kindly.
"Only be brave and steadfast"
So the young people went back to
New York and commenced the world
auew, withdrawing from the mael
strom of "society," and living within
themselves. Mrs. Mildmay, senior,
came with them, and Rosamond is
learning the art of housekeeping nu
der her direction.
"Mamma is an angeli" says the
young wife, enthusiastically. "And
if I could only be just like her, I
should have no higher ambition."

The North Sea Canal.
A most interesting and important
event will he the opening of the Baltic
and North Sea Canal, on June 20, by
Emperor William in the presence of
the highest dignitaries of Germany and
representatives of other countries,
j The principal nations will also be rep
resented by men-of-war. The Ham
burg-American line will join in the
naval parade with two of their twin
screw express steamrs, the Augusta
Victoria and the Nbrmannia. The ca
nal, which was begun early in 189J,_by
the German emperor, starts at Halte
nan, on the north side of Kiel Bay,
and joins tho Elbe at Brunsb?ttel, be
low Hamburg, fifteen miles above the
river's month. It is 01 miles long,
200 feet wide nt tho surface, and 85
feet at bottom, the depth being 28
feet. The cost is estimated at $40,
It is expected that about 18,000
ships will make uso of the canal an
nually. The saving of time will be
considerable, but more important than
the saving in time is tho avoidance of
danger, the passage through the eound
between the Scandinavian Peninsula
and Jutland being considered one of
tho most dangerous in Europe. Sta
tistics Bhow that about 200 vessels
found? every year on these coasts.
The strategic value of the canal to
Germany will also be considerable.
