"You cannot anticipate your love
standing that crucial test?"
"I honestly admit that I have my
doubts. We live in a straightforward
age; let me make a clean breast of

talk at breakfast?"
"I, never. If you were licensed by
the ceremony of marriage to inundate
me with matutinal conversation. I
should be rendered at once miserable.
A feeling of decency would prevent
my showing it; I should suppress it.
That suppression would at once de
stroy all openness between - us."
"You take, I think," interrupted Miss
Greatorex, "a morbid view of the duty
of conjugal confidence. You would
push it too far."
"My views are always high. Per
haps I do; but that is how it strikes me.
Every morning I should join you at the
breakfast table with the unspoken ter

"Dated, July 28, 1889.
"Mr. A. Brown, Ave and one-half

tornado form. He was at work lu his
barnyard and noticed it coming across
his field ns a light summer whirlwind,
such tis' ls noticed oh any still, hot

Brown says he was harnessing a horse,
and as the light whirl passed him it
gently lifted the straw edges of the
roof,bf his ?owshed, but had not
enough strength to lift his hat, and
passed on. At this point it was devoid,
of any color, and was mainly noticed
by the whirl it made among the grass,
straw, and chaff on the ground; he
watched its onward movement indiffer

which made it definable. He then paid

NATURAL COKE OVENS.
Deposits of Fuel All Itcacly for Use in tho
Both In America and Europe numer
ous deposits of coko, made in nature's
furnace and of better quality than the
artificial, have been discovered. Such
have boon formed by molten lava burst
ing through coal bods. The process of
conversion into coke under such cir
cumstances is called by scientists "con
One of the best-known deposits of
this nature ls that at Fungkirehen, In
Hungary, where the coal bod was not
only penetrated, but aLso largely flood
ed over by the lava, which actually
also Insinuated itself into the coal
strata. In some places pieces of coal
are found Intact, imbedded in the lava.
Similarly fragments of lava are met
with imbedded In the coal. As a rule,
however, wherever the lava had come
In contact with the coal the latter was
changed into coke.
Recently in Mexico largo coke de
posits have been discovered which b?nr
a striking resemblance to that de
scribed. The coal fields of Santn Clara
have Buffered extensively from the
breaking through of larva. In thc
clefts are sand and stone imbedded.
The volcanic stone forms a thin cover
ing over tho coko. Here, too, pieces of
lava aro sometimes found in the centre
of a coal mass and vice versa.
The first discovery was qf a compara
tively useless layer of mixed coke and
Iava< but later a good coke bed of from
seven to ton feet thick was found, safe
ly packed in beneath a thin covering of
lava, but not mixed therewith.
It is usually soft coal which has thus
been turned to coke, but occasionally
a bed of anthracite coke of about three
feet thick is met with. Such a deposit
is gencrully betrayed by a glassy lava
covering. Occasionally in the same
bod there are alternate pockets of coal
and COKO, separated only by a clay
layer of a few inches thick.
Natural-coke is of dark gray color,
of fine composition-much closer than
oven cpke. It is no more difficult to
light than is anthracite coal, and there
fore furnishes an excellent fuel, which
