I in Death's j
[e&d Valley. I
By ANDREW BROSON
When Jessie's father, Simon
Ogilvie, acquired his coffee estate on
tho summit of Santa Nita, Co
lombia, South America, in tho cen
tral Andes, he knew little of ihe
climate he was about to face, and
Jessie knew less.. But he was a
?j>rave man, ?ind "faced the music"
gayly and made a lot of money,
while Jessie ?eemed to find nights
of thunderstorm and days of steamy
heat agree with her perfectly. Not
a girl in all Colombia half so fair ?S '
ehe, with her black hair and brown
eyes and 5 feet ll inches of noble
She was loved "passionately mad
ly" by two men, "madly passionate
ly" by seventeen others and quietly
and undemonstratively by a twen
tieth. The two "passionate mad"
adorers were Spanish-Colombians,
Pedro and Fernando by name. The
seventeen "mad passionate" ones
didn't count. Tile undemonstrative
one was Algie Bruce, and he was the
only one of whom Jessie appeared
to take any notice at all, and that
seemed only a contemptuous no
"He is so tame," sho would say to
"He's a good deal of a man for
all that," her father woujd reply,
with a quiet smile.
Pedro and Fernando had been
bosom friends till Jessie came. Then
they immediately became bosom
enemies. Twice under the cover of
darkness had Pedro sought Fernan
do's life with bis glittering forest
knife. Thrice had Fernando hissed
an awful vow straight into Pedro's
face that the day he (Pedro) won
the loye of Jessie would be his last!
They watched her wherever she
went. Did she appear on the door
step of her' father's wooden house
they ' would spring from behind
trees and help her into her saddle.
Did she come climbing up, the
mountain with water from the well,
they would scamper down to relieve
her of her pails. And of an even
ing, while she would be singing bal
lads to her father in the drawing
room, they would be flattening their
noses against the window, hissing
forth their love for her and their
hate for each other, and finally
turning, with a roar of disgust, and
burying their fingers in each other's
throats. They were a nice, engag
J.t was a May morning. After
a night of equatorial thunderstorm,
the sun was shining gloriously upon
a world of green hill and forest,
and f ' r away in Venezuela gleamed
the white heights of the Sierra Ne
vada wrapped in . their mantle of
eternal snow. Jessie stepped forth
from tne house, a basket in one
hand and a pair of large scissors in
the other, and in the same moment
Pedro and Fernando also sprang
forth, the one from behind a large
aloe, the other from the shadow of
a pile of deal boxes.
"Where are you going?" shouted
the two ruffians as gently as possi
"Where neither of you cowards
willjfollow me," laughed the girl.
"J. would follow you to-1"
Pedro screamed, stopping abruptly.
"So would II" yelled Fernando.
"Where are you going ?"
"To gather7 orchids in Death's
Head Valley," replied the girl, still
The two men started and their
brown faces turned a little pale.
' "I saw a patch on one of tne trees
looking down from my window last
evening, and Pm going to have it."
"But it's certain death !" shouted
the two men. ?
. "Not it!" said Jessie. 'Til comt
back safely, you'll find."
v "You shan't go!" hissed Pedro,
advancing, but Jessie fixed her
brown eyes steadily upon him, and
her shoulders ??went back, and her
::ight arm was raised slowly. She
seemed about to brush him from her
path, and lie retreated with a mut- ;
. tered apology.
At that moment Algie strolled
on the lawn, ceremoniously raised
his big linen cap and .said in that
. elaborately courteous voice of his,
"Good morning, Miss J essie. Can I
bo of any use?"
"I am going for some orchids
down in Deathes Head valley," she
said. ''You can come with me if
you are not afraid."
"I slept there last night," said
> nessie gave a look at the other
two, who were glaring with hate at
Algie, then turned to the young
American and started off with him
?own the hill.
Pedro hissed an oath at Fernan
do, who shouted back a curse. Then
the two closed and fought each
other with knives till Mr. Ogilvie
came out and drove them away with
Only those who have been in
Death's Head valley know what sort
of a place it is. At the bottom of
it tho Bio Cauca runs rapidly along
between its banks and bowlders,
hissing anti, foaming and roaring,
' and in the quiet backwater of the
river lie hungry alligators, waiting
for sometliing fleshy to take a snap
at. Snakes of all lengths between
six inches and fifteen feet lie sleep
ing in the long, moist grass; mos

; long lizards skurry ,up" and down

"scissor grinder*' sounds all da}- in
the thick roof of foliage overhead.
It is not a nice place for a Sunday
school picnic, and long before Jessie
had reached' the bottom she had be
gun to wish she hadn't come, but
the calm young man beside her
made her feel ashamed of owning
They walked beside the river, and
little, lobsterlike black insects
crawled up their limbs and gave
both of them agony. They entered
an open, glade, and a ferdil?nce
snake suddenly reared up before
them and was only dodged with
difficulty, Algie giving him a crack
on the head with his stick as he
passed that left him powerless for
ali further malice in this world.
Wherever they went they encoun
tered fresh dangers, and all the
wb?e, unseen and unknown by
I either of them, a big leopard wa?
I stealthily dogging their steps, keep
ing artfully in the shadow, but with
eyes that ever burned and glared
two circles of green malignant fire.
At last they reached the tree on
whose topmost branches were
blooming the orchids Jessie had
"How high they are!" said tho
girl, looking up. "I thought the
tree was quite a short one."
"Not too high for me" answered
Algie, preparing to climb. 1
"No, no ; don't attempt it," cried
the giri. "Half the branches seem
rotten. You might fall and bo
"And what if I were? Who
would miss me ? Not a soul !" And
he gave a short laugh that was a lit
"Do you say that because I
brought you down here ?" asked Jes
"I never dared to think of you as
taking the smallest interest in me
ono way or the other.".
"Why?" asked Jessie, making the
soft eyes at him. And the leopard
behind, seeing them thus absorbed
in one another, crept a little nearer.
"Don't look at me like that!"
cried Algie, as her face suddenly
paled and her eyes opened wide with
"Turn quickly," whispered Jes
sie. But she was. too late. The
beast was upon him, its claws in his
shoulders, and its teeth in his neck.
He turned and writhed, but the
brute stuck to him; he gave the
stick to Jessie, and, with scream up
on scream, she struck it on the
head again and again, while the
blood poured down the lad's shoul
ders, and his strength was visibly
ebbing away. At last she brought
the cudgel down upon the animal's
head with a force that broke its
skull, and it relinquished its hold
and fell to the earth dead, and Al
gie fell back upon it in a swoon.
Jessie knelt beside him, wiped the
blood from his face and neck and
bathed him with water, from the
river. Hour after hour passed, and
though he opened his eyes and
spoke to her he was utterly unable
to rise. At last the sun set, the
forest darkened, the lantern flies
began to dart hither and thither
and all the strange sounds of the
night commenced. Then Jessie be
gan to tremble, and a tear fell upon
the lad's face.
"I feel as though I were dying,"
he murmured faintly. *
"No," cried Jessie, and leaped to
her feet. "Help ! Help i" shs scream
ed at the top of her voice. "Help !
Help ? Help 1" And the echoes died
away in tho blackness of the night.
"Goodby," whispered Algie. ctWill
you kiss me once?"
She stooped and pressed her lips
0gainst his, and his head fell back.
But he was not dead. Oh, dear, ;
no! That kiss, with the magic ?
force that a kiss may have, had re
vived him, put life into him, set
the blood running fast once more,
and presently he raised his head
again and said:
"I believe I shall live."
"Thank God!" And she kissed
Then came a great noise of men
calling and a great flashing of big
lamps and a wild cry in a woman's
voice, and half an hour later Algie
was being borne back-to Santa Nita,
his hand held by Jessie.
And sometimes now he tells his
bouncing boys of tho night he and
their mother once spent in tho Co
lombian forest. But Jessie listens
to it with fear and trembling.-Chi
The Origin of the Menu.
A German gastronomical publica
tion gives the following account of
the origin of the menur At the
meeting of electors in Begensburg
in th? year 1489 Elector Henry of
Braunschweig attracted general no
tice at a state dinner. He. had a
long paper before him, to which he
referred every time before he order
ed a dish. Tho Earl of Montfordy
who sat near nim, asked him what
he was reading. The elector silent
ly handed the paper to his inter
rogator, it contained a list of the
yiandB. prepared for the occasion
which tno elector had ordered the
cook to write out for him. The idea
cf having euch a list so pleased the
illustrious assembly that they in
troduced it each in his own house
hold, and since that timo the fashion
of having a menu has spread all over
the civilized world.

From Parc's Crude Invention to the j
Modern Work of Art.
Tho earliest known mention of
modern artificial eyes-that is, eyes
?worn inside-the'orbit-occurs in an
exceedingly raro illustrated work
on surgery written by a French sur
geon named Ambroise Parc and
published in Paris in 1061. Pare
invented three artificial eyes. The
first was a wonderful contrivance.
It consisted of a thin metal spring
band which passed half way round
the wearer's head,, having on one
end a small oval plate, which cover
ed the orbit of the eye and the other
end pressed against the back of the
head. The oval plate was covered
with smooth, soft leather, on which
an eye was painted. It would, per
haps, be difhcult to devise anything
more inelegant or uncomfortable.
Tho second device was a hollow
globe of gold, eye shaped and en
ameled, which was worn inside the
socket-the first recorded artificial
eye thus worn.
The third contrivance was simply
a "shell pattern" eye, exactly simi
lar in 6hape to those now used, but
made of gold and enameled. Ex
cept that they were made of gold
and enameled, the two latter were
practically of the sam*1 design as the
"globe" and "shell" glass eyes of the
Pure's clumsy, trusslike appli
ance, and his two gold eyes, which
were used only by the wealthy, were
succeeded by eyes made of painted
porcelain . and colored pearl white,
which immediately became im
mensely popular. Next came the
invention of glass eyes, which in
stantly superseded all others and
still command the public favor.
Glass eyes, which were invented
in 1579, were well known in Shake
speare's time. In "King Lear" (act
4, scene 6), written in 1605 and
first published in 1608, Lear,
with crushing derision, thus advises
the blinded traitor Gloucester, "Get
thee glass eyes, and * * * seem
to see." As a strict necessity,
Gloucester would have required
globe pattern eyes.
In Shakespeare's day glass eyes
were literally the finest productions
of very inferior workmanship, the
iris and the pupil being hand paint
ed in tho best style of that rough
and ready period. However, as
Father Time marched along glass
eyes progressed and improved in
make and finish, especially within
the last half century, and now they
have reached a high standard of ex
cellence as works of art.-Cham
Bees and Rain.
Generally the bee stays at home
when rain is in the air. When tho
sky is simply dark and cloudy, those
busy -workers do not leave their
dwelling all at once. A few go out
first, as though th~ queen had sent
out messengers to study the elate of
the atmosphere. . The greater num
ber remain on observation until the
clouds begin to dissipate, and it is
only then, that the battalions entire
rush out in search of their nectar.
A bee never goes out in a fog, be
cause it is well aware that damp?
ness and cold are two fearsome, re
doubtable enemies. We do not
mean, however, that the bee is a
meteorologist in the absolute sense
of the word. Its cleverness consists
in never being taken unawares, for
it possesses untiring vigilance. Oft
en one may observe the sudd?n en
trance of bees into the hive when a
denso cloud hides the sun and even
though the rain is not in evidence.

Virgil and the "/EneId."
Virgil on his deathbed attempted
to destroy his great work, the
"^Eneid." The **&neid" was not
his favorite poem, although it is the
one which constitutes his claim to
the remembrance of posterity. He
liked the "Georgica" best. It is
said that the "JEneid" cost him
eleven years of labor, and that he
intended to devote three years more
to polishing it and bringing it near
er to his ideal of what an epic poem
ought to h?. Before hr could give
siueh time to the latter task, how
ever, he died, and in his last mo
ments he tried to secure the book
and destroy it. It was kept out of
his reach, though, and subsequently
given to the world as it was origi
Invention of Poplin.
The original invention of poplin
is claimed by Avignon, France, once
a papal see, on which account it was
called a papalino in compliment to
the reigning pope, at which timo
(the fifteenth century) this rich ma
terial was produced to supply the
gorgeous ecclesiastical vestments
and hangings in use. The industry
was introduced into Dublin by
French immigrants, refugees at thc
time of the revocation of the edict
of'Nantes, who settled in that part
of the Irish capital called the Lib
erties. The La Touche family es
tablished the first organized manu
factory there, which commenced
operations in 1C93.

Of all the lands in the world nono
exerts the peculiar fascination of
Japan. Others have equal beauty
of scenery, greater grandeur, inore
noble works of ari, more interesting
problems of society, writes David
Starr Jordan in The Humanitarian.
But none possesses an equal fascina

treaty ports and tho foreign hotels
and railways ever could or ever
would forget his experience. No
one, if he could, would ever fail to
Thc great secret of this charm
lies with tho people themselves.
They havo made a line art of per
sonal relations. Their acts are
those of good taste and good humor.
Two cities of about tho samo size
and relative importance aro Paris
and Tokyo. Nc two could show u
greater contrast in spirit. Both aro
in a sense cities of pleasure. Tokyo
is a city of continual joyousness, lit
tle pleasures drawn from simple
tilings, which leave no sting and
draw nothing from future happi
ness. Paris is feverish and feels
tho "difference in the morning" and
tho "hard, fierce lust and cruel
deed" which go with the search for
pleasure that draws on tho future
for the joys of tho present.
No ono who catches the spirit of
Paris can foil to miss tho underlying
sadness, the pity of it all. The
spirit of Tokyo-not of all Tokyo,
but of its life as a whole-is as
fresh as the song of birds, as "sweet
as children's prattle is," and it is
good to be under its spell.
The Murderer and Captain Byrnes.
McGloin was a young ruffian who
had murdered a saloon keeper at a
midnight r^id on his place. He
was the fellow who thc night before
he was hanged invited the chief of
detectives to "como over to tho
wake. They'll have a devil of a
time." For six months Byrnes had
tried everything to bring tho crime
home to him, but in vain. At last
he sent out and had McGloin and
his two "pals" arrested, but 6o that
none of them knew of the plight of
the others. McGloin was taken to
Mulberry street, and orders were
given to bring thc others in at a
certain hour fifteen or twenty min
Byrnes put McGloin at the win
dow in his office whilo he questioned
him. Nothing could be got out of
him. As he sat there a door was
banged below. Looking out, he saw
ono of his friends led across the
yard in charge of policemen. Byrnes,
watching hun narrowly, saw his
cheek blanch, but still his nerve
held. Fifteen minutes passed; an
other door banged. The murderer,
looking out, saw his other pal led in
a prisoner. He looked at Byrnes.
The chief nodded.
It was a lie, and it coat the man
his life. "The jig is up, then," he
said and told the story that brought
him to the gallows.-^Jacob BJis in

when he found that he had. not

that "total abstinence is sometimes

Catarrh lia? become such a common
diseuse that ?. person entirely free from
this disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
as nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple inflammation of the nose and 1
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease ; if not at first, it
verv soon becomes so.
Thc blood is quickly contaminated bv
thc foul secretions, and the poison through
the general circulation is carried to all
parts of the system.
Salves, washes and sprays are unsatis
factory and disappointing, because they dc
not reach the scat of the trouble. S. S. S.
does. It cleanses the blood of the poison
and eliminates from the system all catar
rhal secretions, and thus cures thoroughly
and permanently the worst cases.
