AB she ?ipoke a carriage drove up to
the door, and Harry Martin sprang to
the pavement and came in.
"Good morning, Miss Perkins," he
said in his brisk, whole souled man

and calmly put the roses in a box,
dropped Mr. Martin's card among

had addressed, and with a firm hand
wrote a new one, which she placed on
the box ; then put it with a half dozen
smaller packages, which Nero, the
factotum of her establishment, would
deliver. Then Miss Perkins regained
her habitual smile and gentle self
possession, and went about humming
little scatohes of happy songs and
seemed as one conscious of having
done a good deed.
Harry Martin was not a happy man.
Indeed he Ltd been miserable for
thirty-six ho- s, for he waB, or had
been, deeply n love with Mabel
Biohey, and ii ality had never been
introduced to . golden-haired girl
with the three tioned name, until
since the quarr ith his sweetheart.
But since that t test nous interview,
he had sought, an easily obtained an
introduction, and had decided to send
her roses for the decoration of the
table at the supper that was Daking
several Westfield sweethearts jealous
and unhappy. i
And Mabol Richey was not e happy
woman. She had wept all night after
the quarrel and gotten up the next
morning firmly resolved to die rather
than show any signs of weakening.
And she had gotten through the pre
ceding day fairly well ; the only times
that she manifested any unusual feel
ing being when the ?am? of Mils

his traps carried oat to sea and lost in
; the strong undertow. These traps are
made of two thick hoops, of willow
joined by olosely set ribs of lath, and
within them is hung a pieoe of old fish
or meat ; the older the better, for the
lobster has a strong ?cent, and a stone
is placed on the bottom of the tr?p to
act as a sinker, while a lon ' line ex
tends from the trap to the surface of
the water, and to this line a buoy, or
marker, is fastened.
At either end of the trap a purse net
is placed over the willow hoops, and,
while it allows the lobster entrance, it
successfully bars bis exit. The fisher
men work in pairs and set from 103
to 250 traps each day, and their pay
at this season of the year will average
850 or $60 a week.

A Strange ?priug.
A mile and a half from Franks, In
dian Territory, a very large spring of
olear, sparkling water bubbles up
through the gravel at the foot of Bog
gie Mountain, tumbles swiftly down
the hills over numerous falls and runs
a big flouring mill at Franks for the
Hon. B. F. Byrd. In the water is a
substance that attiiohes itself to the j
buckets of a wheel, forming a hard,
smooth st ono about them that has to
be broken off every eix weeks with a
hammer. Wood or bone thrown into
the water is petrified in a very short
time, and many rare and curious for-1
mations are to be seen in and about !
the stream. Near the mill the roots
of a large fallen tree, over but not in
the oreek, are all tamed into stone. -

Droye the Steer.
Squire Vogelsang, of Kelso Town-;
ship, Indiana, heard a onxions case,
which maj become as noted as that ol
the Iowa oalf. John Kegler, who re;
sin es at New Alsace, bet Charles Horn-;
beck, of Yorkville, that he could har?
ness an unbroken steer to tho latter's
buggy and drive it from New Alsace
to Yorkviile, two miles. If Kegler
won he got the buggy ; if not, tho
steer went to Hornbeok.
The trial came off the next after
no m. The roadway from New Alsace
to Yorkvillo was lined with men, wo-i
men, children and an army of dogs.
Kegler brought out his steer, a little
runt, thin and wiry, and so viciously
angry that it required a dozen men tx
put on the harness. Hornbeok rode a
big gelding. A bridle was put on the
steer, and the bit made it furious.
When it started the crowd yelled.
The steer didn't know where the win-'
ning wire was, but it went the open
way toward Yorkville. The sight as
the steer went by, with bulging eyes
and tail sticking straight out, while
all the dogs joined in the raoe, yelp-,
ing at every jump, was a sight to be
remembered. The women waved their
shawls and capes, and even the chil
dren took part in the racket. York-,
ville was soon in sight. Everybody
followed and the road was packed from
fence to fence. Then Hornbeok re
fused to pay the bet, but Kegler kept
the buggy.-New Hork Recorder.
Nye's Favorite Story.
Bill Nye's put story was the one as,
to how he was oharged $4 for a sand
wich in a village in New Jersey. He
told the man who sold it that it was a
high price for a sandwich, and said'
that he had frequently gotten a ten-,
course dinner for just making a speech
and finally asked the man why he
charged $i for a ham sandwich.
"Well, I'll tell you," said the sand
wich man, "the faot is, by gad, I need
the money."-Detroit Free Press,

September Sd, 1895, a testimonial
from his barber, Harry Scheid, o!

writes Harry, "ch ut for eight
months 1 have taken three Bi pans
Tabules a day, and have not been to
see a doctor onco since I com
menced to lake them. Before I
would have to have a big lube pat
down roy throat and have my
stomach flashed (I believe that ls
what they call it) three t'.mes every
week by a doctor that charged me
60 cents for every time. Of coarse
that always gavo me roi io i', bat-it
always came back again, andi can
tell yon it was no fan to be pumped
oat about every two days. The
doctor said I had catarrh of the
stomach; hat whatever it was it
don't bother me now, bat I still take
ono of Bi pans after each meal, as X
am afraid to quit. I am a barber,
and for four years I was troubled,
so that I used to lose about three
days oat of every month. 1 wish
you would have your Tabnljes kept
in moro stores in Cincinnati, as
there are only two.places where I
can get them. My attention WM
first called to your remedy by asking
