We were talking in my study, as in

newspaper article: ''Ought Married

We both smilingly stuck to onr test.
It was not often that we differed in

here. It is a pretty placo, and ono
wonders whatever made tho Govern
ment build a jail there. However,
there it is, and tbeic was I. The
amount of society that one got in Low
market was perfectly astonishing. Had
I had the time and inclination for it,
I might have turned out a regular
.soo? et y ' alergyman. As it was, I had
a full amount of lectures, soirees, par
ties and entertainments. Among the
people I got in with none were nicer
than the Yorks. Miss York, a maiden
lady of fifty, lived in a large and beau
tifully famished house called The
Cedars,' in the best part of the town.
She was known all over the district for
her charity, kindness of heart and
pare life. Everybody had a good
word for her. Nor was hor nieoe, Miss
York, any less popular. People in
Lowmarket fairly worshiped both of
"I was twenty-eight when I first
saw Ella York, and at once succumbed
to her charms. For weeks her praises
had been in my ears,' and now, on ac
quaintance, I found her beauty, her
manners, her kindness of heart, not
one whit less than report stated. I
loved ber. Ol coarse, I could not say
so at once ; and whether, after two or
three meetings in the coarse of my
work-for Miss York the elder took
great interest in our sphere of labor
she guessed my love, and reciprocated
it, I could not then say. I fon nd,
npon judicious inquiries, that Miss
York-Ella-bad lived with her aunt
from ohildhood ; that she was now
twenty-four; that her mother was
dead and her father lived on tho Con
tinent for his health ; also that she
was her aunt's solo heiress. These
facts were of course only learned by
degrees, as one cannot go to the foun
tain head for such information.
"After mach heart searching and
debating within myself I thought I
saw that Ella York was not wholly in
different to me, and I resolved to ask
her to be my wife. 1 need not go into
details as to how I did it, beyond say
ing that it was one summer morning
rather more than five years ago, when,
having gone to see her uunt, who was
ont, I met Ella in the gronnds; and
after talking as we walked along on
various subjects, somehow it came
oat unexpectedly, and almost before I
could comprehend what it all meant
Ella York had promised to be my
wife, subject to her aunt's consent.
"But her aunt didn't oonsent. 1
received a dainty note that night
how tenderly I regarded it, Howson I
-from Ella, saying that she had
spoken of my visit to her aunt, and
had told her I was coming to-morrow
for her approval ; Miss York had beon
very kind, bat acted rather strangely,
and said she would see me, bat she
ooald not consent, as ebe did not wish
to loso Ella, My dear girl went on to
say that she had in vain tried to get
from her any more than this.1
"I was in a curious frame ofjmind as
I went next morning to see M?BS York.
What ooald her objection really be ?
Surely not to me ! My position, my
family, my life here were, 1 hoped, be
yond reproach. Even if it were a
qnestion of money, I had enough pri
vate means,aa you know. Aa,for M?BS
York, well, of course it would bo lonely
without Ella at first, alter so many
years' companionship, but surely she
didn't expect her never to getjmarried !
It was preposterous.
"I was destined to know her objec
tion. As I approached the lodge the
portnress met me.
"'Oh, Mr. Bourn,this is shocking!'
"I was more puzzled tban evert
Why my engagement to Ella should
be 'shocking' I couldn't see, and I no
doubt expressed it in my looks.
" 'So sudden, too, sir I' said the wo
man. 'Nobody expected it !'
u 'Whatever's the matter?' said I.
" 'Why, haven't you heard that Miss
York is dead? Not Ob, dear! Poor
thing ; had a fit in the night, dootor
says, was qnite unconscious when Miss
Ella got there, ind died at 0 o'clock
"My heart sank ; I felt faint and
giddy. It was some minutes before I
could move. You will never know
how it feels, Howson, unless yon
should have such a blow, which I hope
you never will. Bnt I am bound to
say that my one thought was 'my poor,
lonely darling, Ella !'
"There were no moro details to be
learned about Miss York's death. She
was bnriod in Lowmarket churchyard. ;
Ella was ill lor weeks, and could not j
see even mc. When she was well
enough to attend to business it was
found that she inherited all her aunt's
money; and as she had already ac
cepted me, we weie married a twelve*'
month afterword. She had been
awfully lonely, sha said, since Miss
York's deatb, but no couple had ever
lirod happier and been nearer and
dearer to each other than Ella and I.
May God bless her ?"
''Amen !" said I sc linly and rever
"Ella and I," pun ' Jim, "ooold
never give the rem at. isss as to her
aunt's objection to o engagement,
and it would probably a remained
a mystery to me, as it b to Ella even
now, had it not been for he following
circumstances. Some time ago I was
sent for at the prison to see a rather
desperate character, whose end was
very near. He had been sent to seven
years' penal servitude some three
years before for forgery, and a/ter
serving three years at Portland had
been transferred to Lowmarket. His
appearance was superior to that of the
ordinary convict, even when a forger.
Although I had seen him several
times, und certainly been strack with
his face and appearance, we could not
be said to be friendly, as he had been
indifferent to all my advances.
"I found him lying in the hospital,
and I soonjaaw that he would not live

" 'Yes, sir,' replied No. 152, 'I am

to 'ast much longer-perhaps not till

your oourage up, and you'll probably
deceive the doctor.'
"I talked to him about his soul and
spiritual things. That wo may pass
by, Howson ; I believe he was thor
oughly penitent. I asked him if thero
was anything I could do for him.
" 'Yos, sir, there is one thing, if
you will. It's suoh a curi?os one, I
hardly like to ask you.' His eyes
looked eagerly at me.
" 'Go on,' said I : 'I'll do it if pos

the convict. 'I might have been

be forgiven, as you say God will par
don even the worst of us. And if you'll

Oceans of Soup.
There is enough canned soup sold
each year to float half a hundred war
ships. At least, that is what a man in
the bnsiness of preparing the stufl
says. He has been fifteen years can
ning goods of all kinds, and he says
that no brauch of the trade has made
such strides as the soup industry. Last
year was the most successful in his
experience, he adds, and the chefs and
workmen in his factory worked on an
avorage of eight hours a day only.
This season promises to be a record
breaker, and for the lost five months
the full forco has been engaged on an
average of eleven hours a day turning
"Last year,"he remarked, in giving
details of the great industry, "we
canned 2,350,000 gallons of it. It.
would be possible to flood the entire
Erie Canal with this quantity of soup
tamed ont annually here and else
where. This year, judging by the way
we have started off, our output will be
over 3,000,000 gallons. Canned soup
has becomo popular for various rea
sons. In the first place, it can be pur
chased oheaper than it is possible for
the housewife to make it. Then, again,
there is no bother attaohed to its con
sumption. It needs no seasoning,and
does not have to be cooked. AU that
is required is to heat it. Tho oans are
prepared with tho greatest of care, and
will stand any sort of olimato, whether
it bo tho torrid zone or the blustering
"There are, of course, more than
one hundred kinds of soups prepared
at our cannery. The most popular,
however, number about fourteen.
Thoy are the oxtail, beef, chiokea,
mock turtle, pea, tomato, green turtle,
terrapin, consomme, mulligatawney,
maccaroni, vermicelli, juhonno and
okra or gumbo.

Underneath a Lake.
An English nan, who has a lake upon
his estate, recently caused it to be
drained, and in the deepest part he
had a house built, which contains
smoking dining and servants' rooms.
The framo work ot thc house is iron.
The floor is of stone, resting upon a
foundation ol concrete. The sides and
roof are composed of thiok plato glass.
There is a passage nnder the water
from tho boathouse to the glass house,
and air is obtained through large
clumps of artificial water lillies, which
rest upon the surface of the lake.
It is indescribably pleasant to sit in
one of the rooms upon a warm day.
The air is cool ; there is no sound to
be heard, anti it is interesting to watch
the tish swimming around, attracted
by the glare of tho electrio light?.
*The house cost comparatively little
to build. The owner contemplates a
more ambitious soheme. He has two
square, miles of forest, which he in
tends to inolose by a wide, deep trench,
M strong iron railing and high stone
wall. He will then turn loose into the
inclosnre every sort of wild animal
that he can procure-lions, tigers, ele
phants, etc., in order to ascertain if
they can live at large in this climate
and without unduly interfering with
each other. There is to be a network
of underground passages leading tc
numerous stone towers in different
places in thv forest, and from these
he intends to watch the animals and
study their habits when in a compara
tively wild state.- London Truth.
Utilizing tho Horse Cars.
Whon the car horses throughout
Connecticut cities were retired a few
years ago with the coming of the
trolley, people wondered what would
become of tho 600 cars that they have
dragged so long. No one wonld have
guessed then that a brisk demand for
these old car 3 would spring np in one

the case this summer. The cars have
been sold for summer shelters in rural
districts for hunters' camps, for lodges

A Ol ass Box for Perishable Arl ides.
There seems to be no limit to the
ingenuity be?towed upon the devising
of means for accomplishing the trans
port of the perishable produco of dis
tant climes to the English market. A
new method is that of packing butter
in a box made of six sheets of ordin
ary glass, all the edges being covered
with gummed paper. The glass box
is enveloped in u layer of plaster of
paris, one-fo irth of an inoh thick, and
this is covered with specially prepared
paper. Tho plaster being a bad con
ductor of heat, the temperature inside
tho hermetically-sealed receptacle
remains constant, being unaflectod by
OK THE HEIGHT,
I dreamed last night, my darling,
That you stood on ii height,
Arrayed In shimmering garments,
And glorious to the sight;
And all tho ronds of all thu earth
Led up to where you stood,
The very apotheosis
Of gentle maidenhood;
And people came from near and far,
Tho lowly and the great,
Tq gnzo in wonderment upon
You In your regal state;
But, ah! my love, in all that throng,
Thnt hn l been drawn to tho??,
Ono ??orson only hold thy gaze
And I, oh, joy, was ht!
An 1 In your ilrenm, prny toll me,
As I stood upon that heigh?-,
Arrayed in shimmering garments,
And glorious to tho sight
There on that lofty pinnacle,
As I in ^plon lor stood,
Tho very apotheosis
Of gentle maidenhood -
And, au tho people pressed around,
The Jowly and thu great,
To guato with wonderment upon
Me in mv regal state
Oh, tell mi?, tell mo truly,
And relieve my troubled mind
As I stoo 1 up ibero In glory,
Did my skirts hang straight behind?

Dr. Lewy has just made a communi
cation to the Berlin physiological so
ciety regarding the latest application
of the Boentgen raye. It has now be
come possible, he declared, to obtain
a completo picture of the internal or
gans, as regurds their situation, tj>.o
and mechanism. This is accomplished
by means of the Fluorescenz screen.
The whole body is lighted up so that
the shadow of the various parts and
organs is thrown on the screen. Dr.
Du Bois-Beymond and Professor
Grummach, who had aided Dr. Lewy
in his investigations, further reported
that they had succeeded in seeing the
organs of the throat, tho larynx, tho
tongue and the stomach. Professor
Grummach has further succeeded in
making pathological studies of the
human body. He examined a man
who had formerly suffered from con
sumption and hemorrhage of the
lungs. He noticed that in the part of
the body where the lungs lie (the
lungs are too transparent to be visible
by means of the Boentgen rays) there
were a number of opaque spots. These
were places where ossification of the
tuberculous parts of the lungs had set
in. In another case he ?aw small black
lines in the heart of a patient just
where the main arteries lie. These
showed that tho ossification of this
part of the heart had set in, although
it could not bo diagnosed by any of
the usual means. The oorreotnees of
these observations was confirmed by
the fact that the pulse in the wrist was
hard to tho touch, and signs of ossifi
cation could be observed near the el
bow and in the forearm.-New York
?s a rule, spiders are quite harmless
to man, but one or two foreign species
are oapable of doing mischief. The
great, hairy spider of the South Ameri
can pampas, for instance, has long,
black, siokleshaped jaws, whioh indict
severe wounds, and the effects of the
poison are sometimes felt for many
years after the bite is given.
But an even more objectionable
spider is found on the same pampas.
It is very large, very active, and of
extraordinarily bad temper. It not
only resents any intrusion upon its
domain, but objects even to any one
looking over the hedge.
Men on horseback who ventured to
approaoh wittn?. ten feet of it have
been pursued for thirty yards, tho
spider keeping up with a -trotting
horses. This irritable individual is
called "the king of spiders."

these remarkable structures were not

simply religious symbols.
