Ca the wall of an "old curiosity
shop" tangs a key a foot in length
anet the wards ma ted up. xnis is
the rtory attached to it:
In an old brick house on. the
bank of the river lived Martin Bentz
with his wife and daughter. He was
Mr. Graylev*8 managing man-kept
his books, paid the hands and sold
the timber. The office was in a cor
ner room in the house, and in the
wall was built the safe. It didn't
pretend to be fireproof, but both
old Grayley and his clerk believed
that all the burglars* in the state
could not gel into ii, and every
night he locked tho door with seri
ous mien arid much deliberation
and then handed the koy to Martin,
who kept it till next morning.
To ono of our ma?ern artists it
would bo ? pleasant 'four's work to
open the old strong t>ox with a key
holo that you could put your three
fingers in, but these were primitive
days, and old Martin felt safe as
Jong as the key was in his posses
sion. Bentz was a German by birth,
but his wife American,- bred and
born in Eishtown. Although the
couple were not always accordant in
opinion, on the subject they I agreed,
and that was about the beauty and
excellence of their daughter Mabel,
and parental - judgments.. are often
falli?le, but there could be no ques
tion as to Mabel Bentz'e merits. She
was not only a good daughter, but a
very beautiful girl. No race in
'America produces more lovely- wo
men than the German Americans,
and. there could be no better illus
tration of this than Martin Bentz't
daughter. ! '
She was not much liked by thc
neighboring girls, as they were rath
er a rough lot in those days, much
given to promiscuous dances thal
generally ended in a free fighl
among their admirers, BO Mabel b>
avoiding them got the credit of be
ing proud. She was assistant in c
millinery store on Second street anc
was never, without an escort home
but very few were permitted to come
to the house, and the girl herseh
was circumspect and as yet indiffer
ent to the advances of any of he]
She had two persistent suitors
both young men. Ona, George Gra
ham, was a boatbuildar, a f air,-4H?8&
ly fellow and an excellent mechanic
but he was not handsome, and, whil<
a favorite with the old mau, Mrs
Bentz had a very pronounced dis
like for him.
The other, Peter Daily, was i
very showy young man, ostensibly i
plumber, but he was seldom knowi
to work, and yet ,he wore goo(
clothes and always seemed to hav<
plenty of money. He was rathe:
good looking, but there was a shift;
expression in his hard gray eyes th a
was not prepossessing. But ne wa
Mrs. Bentz's favorite.
It was Martin's custom to hanj
the safe key over* the mantelpiece
and it seemed to give Aim mucl
pleasure to sit and watch it. H
was given to moderate potation
and at times was boastful and indis
creet in speech. One Friday nigh
the family were assembled in thei
one sitting room, and both Graban
and Doily were present. Martin wa
telling of a big sale of timber h
had made for Mr. Grayley and ho^
the price, Boine $2,500, had bee:
paid in that day. Daily's eyes look
ed more xurtiv? than ever, and Ma
bel, glancing over her sowing
thought how mean his expressioi
was at times, but the talk becam
general, and Daily soon left.
Next evening he was again a vis
itor, bringing with him a friend,
tall, thin, showily dressed man. H
had also brought Martin a bottle o
brandy. This was opened, and th
old man became * quite conviv?a
Suddenly, a tremendous crash wa
heard outside. The entire part
made a rush for the door, all bu
Daily's thin friend. He, quick as
cat, mounted a chair and, \akin
down the safe key, substituted ax
other, in looks *nuch the same. Th
others came back in a few moment
It .was only a pile ci Bp?rs that ha
fallen, no doubt the workl&f the ba
? boys that infested the wharfs.
Daily and his friend went awa;
and George Graham came in an
was Boon deeply engaged in convoi
Bation with Mabel. As was the eui
tom, the parents withdrew, an
George be?an to explain to Mab
his improving prospects and his d<
sire that she should become h
wife. . The girl's temperament wi
placid and rather cold, and, wiri
ehe liked Graham, she was not i
the least stirred by passion, so si
answered calmly that it would n<
be right for hex to accept withoi
her mother's consent, and hero el

through the office window a fail
gleam, of light. Ho did not hesitat
but, going around tho house, pus!
ed open the door of the om
iploree men were in front of t
open safe. Graham gave a she
and dashed at them.; He was ac ti
and powerful, but a blow on t
head stopped him for a mome:
and he saw. tho rabbets cseu

George lpoked. 1
, "Why, it is surely the sale key/'
Martur was amazed. ' The genuino
was certainly in its accustomed
place in. the house, and yet the safe
had been opened. Comparison of
the two at once made the plan of
the robbery manifest-the key in
Graham's hand had been tho means
of bringing Daily to justice, and he
went to jail with a very sore head. J
Graham renewed his suit, but Mrs. j
Bentz had evidently resolved that i
he should not marry her daughter,
and Mabel had not force of charac
ter enough to act independently.
So George, bidding them all goodby,
left, and next day they heard that
he had shipped on a vessel bound
Mabel mourned his absence and,
as is often the case, found that she
loved him more than she had imag
ined. But three years passed away,
and no word came from her old
Martin Benthe health began to
fail, and his v,ife thought that it
was time for her daughter to marry.
Mr. Grayley had .a nephew named
Sands, who worked around the place,
and he had been paying Mabel much
attention and ?nally spoke to her
mother, and after much persuasion
and some secret tears the girl ac
cepted him, and they were married. .
Sands was not a bad fellow, but he
rras utterly feeble in character, and
after four years of dull and spirit
less married life Mabel found her
self a childless widow. Her father
was dead, and when her mother
spoke of her marrying again Mabel j
said, with unusual firmness: "Moth
er, your interference broke up my
life, and I will not allow it to influ
ence me again. Don t speak to mo
about these matters, as you only
give me pain/'
George Graham had prospered as
a sailor, 'and one day# he came to
Philadelphia captain of a magnifi
cent clipper ship. Ho had cargo
consigned to a firm on Delaware
avenue and went to its counting
house and was very politely receiv
ed. Captains were bigger people
then than now. ' Glancing around,
he saw hanging on the wall a large
key. Memory at once recalled the
house in the boatyard and his lost
sweetheart. ''You are looking at
that key/-' said one of the partners.
^Well, that belonged to an uncle of
mine named Grayley. It has a his
tory, and when the old house was
torn down I kept this as a me
Graham was silent for a moment
and then asked, "Do you know any
thing of the family that lived in
your uncle's house ?"
"The Bentzes ? Oh, yes. My un
cle left old Martin's widow $100 a
year as long as she lives. We paj* it
to her. Her widowed daughter,
Mrs. Sands, a very ?retty and good
woman, comes for it, and, by the
bye, ifs due today, and here she
comes. Do you know her?"
Graham was strongly moved. He
met her at the door and said, ''Ma
bel, do you remember me ?" .
Poor girl! She stared at him foi
a moment and then burst into tears.
"Oh, yes, George, I remember you
The sequel needs no telling. Cap
tain Graham made but one more
voyage and then married his . early
love. Old Mrs. Bentz fortunately
died soon afterward.

> The First Submarino Boat.
,v*. The first actual submarine boat
was that of Fulton, the American
engineer, Which, plied under the
Seme near the Invalides, Paris, and
also at Brest and Havre in 1801.
Fulton was a son of Irish immi
grants and born in Pennsylvania in
1765: His boat, the Nautilus, arose
out of his experiments with a tor
pedo meant to explode warships,
was shaped like a cigar and was over
twenty-one feet long. Napoleon,
with all his practical power and
foresight, only saw in Fulton a char
latan and. adventurer, but afterward
had good cause to regret his blun
der. Fulton died in 1815, and the
torpedo and submarine boat were
almost forgotten for about half a

HIS OLD FURNITURE.
Europe ?nd Amert a Clamors For lt,
but Hlgham Wont Sell.
To possess the celebrated "LT?P
baru iurniture" is the ambition of
the wealthy, lovers of old f orniture
ia Enrope and the United States,
but it is an ambition which probad
bly never will be realized until the
family of tho present owners be
comes extinct, for each heir entails
che collection as far as he can, and
no amount of money ever has
tempted tho Highams of Higham to
think for a moment of parting with
their value? possessions.
This furniture is a collection of
perfect early English furniture and
also of flawless ''Chippendale" and
"Sheraton" and is in tho farmhouse
of Mr. Higham of Higham, whoso
ancestors, a family of yeoman farm
ers, have cultivated the farm called
Thc Hangings, near Higham, Eng
land, for centuries. Wealthy con
noisseurs in this country and Eu
rope have offered enormous amounts
for tho furniture, but the Highams
will not sell a stick.
Tho actual value placed on the
collection, which consists of fifty
pieces, is $250,000,but Henry Grant,
the British railway millionaire, of
fered $400,000 for it two years ago,
an offer which was refused, like all
other offers. Several pieces of this
furniture date back to the twelfth
century, and the more modern Sher
aton chairs alone are valued at $100
each, while an old oak chest is ap
praised at $30,000.
No old "county family" or fam
ily of title in the three kingdoms
has a finer collection of anticue fur
niture than Mr. Higham, tho yeo
man, if, indeed, they have any sin
gle piece that can compare with his
in all their castles and halls, and as
long as there is a Higham of Hig
ham the furniture will stay in the
farmhouse of The Hangings.-New
"Deafness is very much more
general than is supposed," is the
statement of a famous physician.
"Many persons who think they have
perfect hearing are living under a
delusion. In most cases, however,
the ordinary deafness of people ia
the result of accumulations ot wax
in the ear. Those who are troubled
in this way should never attempt to
remove the wax themselves. They
should go to a physician. Ninety
nine out of a hundred cases of
chronic deafness aro. caused by ca
tarrh of the nose and may be cured
by treatment of that disease.
"People should be warned against
putting anything into their ears,
such as spoons, ear scoops, tooth
picks, matches or finger nails. The
mechanism of the ear is very deli
cate and is easily disarranged, and
the use of such instruments by in
experienced, persons is productive of
the most serious results.''
Thirteen Kept Him Back.
Some people carry their supersti
tions to ridiculous extremes. A
fussy little man crowded into tho
elevator car on the ground floor of
the Beal Estate Trust building and
hastily ran his eye over the other
passengers. He was counting them,
and he heaved a sign of satisfaction
when ho found that there were
twelve. The elevator man was just
about to dose the door when an
other man, who seemed in a great
hurry, crowded in. ,
The fuFsy little fellow who had
been couirting noses cried out :
"Wait a minute 1 Let me off I" He
squeezed his way out, and the car
"He makes me tired," remarked
the elevator man. "I've seen him
do that more than once. He's afraid
something will happen if there are
thirteen passengers on at ono time."
Locating His Bet.
During the Newcastle raceB on
tho Town Moor when a famous
horse won the Northumberland
Plate the cry of "Hats off in front 1"
was raised and obeyed during the
decision of the great event, says the
Newcastle Chronicle. When tho
horses had passed, the "uncovered"
ones, of course, "recovered" them
A few moments afterward a young
Northumbrian began to lift the hats j
of the spectators round about him
and replaced thon with' expressions
of vexation. Oh lifting tho hat of
one of the spectators he was asked
what he was trying to do.

To Stop Runaway Horses.
In Sicilian cities an appliance
which is in general use and has been
for a lohg time is an arrangement
by which tho breath of a horse is
shut off when he attempts to run

disks, which the pulling of a little
rein by tho driver claps down upon
the animal's nose, thus shutting off

HOW JIM WAS SAVED.
A Court Incident In Which General
Robert Toomba Figured.
Tho love that many of thc former
slaves felt for their old masters and
mistresses has been illustrated in
oountless stories. An incident, which
li up pened in Georgia some years aft
er the civil war is related by the,
A negro man, strong end healthy,
but getting gray from years, was on
trial for murder. Ho hod killed an-!
other negro and had been lying in
jail for. somo time, awaiting his
trial. Tho testimony against him
was given by other.negroes who wit
nessed tho killing. When the caso
was called for trial by tho presiding
judge, an old man roso and in a
voice deep and low, but full of mark
ed gentleness, said, "Will your hon
or please mark mo for tho defense ?"
It was General liobcrt Toombs.
His faco was wrinkled with age, but
it was largo and strong, and tho
lines of intellect mado deeper wrin
kles than those of age. His white
hair rolled back in curls from a
splendid brow. His form was largo
and tall and straight, although his
movements were ?low with the
years. His eyes still flashed as when
ho stood in tho senate chamber at
Tlio witnesses all seemed unfriend
ly toward the prisoner. In his- own
statement he claimed that the kill
ing was in self defense.
General Toombs analyzed the tes
timony of the eyewitnesses and then
concluded thus :
"Your honor, please, and gentle
men of the jury, a few years .ago my
only brother fell wounded, on tho
battlefield of Gettysburg. He lay
there bleeding to death, with no
friendly hand to help him. Shot
and shell were sweeping tho earth
all about him. No friend could go
to him. No surgeon dared approach
"My brother had a body servant,
a negro man, who waited on him in
camp. The negro 6aw his master's
danger, and straight out into that
sheet of hattie and flame and death
ho went. A piece of shell torc tho
flesh from his breast, but on he
went, and; gathering my brother in
his arms, tho blood of thc man min
gling with the blood of the master,
he bore him to safety and life. Jim,
open your collar/'
The prisoner rose and opened his
shirt in the front. On his breast
the jury saw tho long, jagged scars
where the shell had torn its way.
"Jim's skin may be black," the
general continued, "he may bo a ne
gro, but the man who would do
what he did has a soul too white
ever to have killed a man except in
defense of his own life."
Tho jury agreed with him, and
Jim was cleared.
Just His Case.
Fr?a father was at the station
when ho stepped from tho train.
"Why, Thomas, what are you
home for? It isn't holiday timo
now, is it?" said the old man.
"No," replied Tom, looking round
for his trunk.
"Well, I thought you were not
coming home again until the end of
"Changed my mind," was the la
conic reply of the young hopeful.
"And I ain't going back."
"I always thought that waa a very
good school," said his father-''one
of the best schools in the country."
'Tm nov going back, all the
same," said Tom, stepping from
one foot to the other.
"Tom," said the old man earnest
ly, "that school has turned out some
of. the smartest men of this coun
. "Yes, I know that-they turned
me out!"-London Answers.
Evil Influence of a Peaked Roof.
As an example of the superstition
prevailing even among thoso in au
thority in tho Chinese empire tho
following extract from tho Hong
kong Daily Press is printed :
"The Tartar general of Canton
has been troubled by an evil influ
ence in his yemen which, in ono
month caused tho death of his wife
and daughter, as well as of a former
Tartar general. A fung shui pro
fessor was finally called in. Ho look
ed over the city and decided tho evil
influence was the roof of the library
of the government school for for
eign languages. The roof, which
was a peaked one, was at once re
moved and is now being replaced by
a flat one."

ated into tho ancient Westphalian

secrete of the society from wife and
child, father and mother, sister o-d
brother, from fire and sword, frt m

held to be irrevocable and not to be

ashlers and Bank Tellers Detect
Thom by Instinct.
Ii seems wonderful to the casual
bserver that cashiers, bank tellers
nd others who handle large
mounts of paper money are able at
, glauco to detect a bai note. Ex
actly what it is that does expose the
ountcrfeit the best experts find it
lifficult to tell. They say they know
t instinctively. They judge not
mly by thc looks of a note, hut by
he "feel" of it.
It .is obvious that a counterfeit
loto must bo widely circulated to
nako it profitable. No sooner does
i counterfeit appear than its de
K?ription is widely published. Those
?vho aro likely to suffer by taking
jounterfeit notes make it their busi
aess to be on thc lookout for new
Dnes, which aro soon distinguisha
ble by some easily discovered mark
A teller knows of just what de
aominations aro the counterfeits
and just where to look for tho tell
tale marks, lie detects tho spurious
noto as easily ns tho reader does a
misspelled word. It is no particular
effort. It is habit.
Tho principal reason why coun
terfeits aro.BO easily detected is be
cause in somo feature they are al
most uniformly of inferior quality.
Tliis is, indeed, tho main protection
of tho public. Genuine notes aro
engraved and printed almost regard
less of cost, and thc very best mate
rials arc used in thc engraving and
?Hinting. It is done in large eatab
iBhments, with costly materials and
by the best workmen. It is prac
tically impossible for counterfeiters
to do as well. They must work in
secret and at a disadvantage and of
necessity cannot have tho experi-,
once to produce such perfect work.
If they get thc engravings dono
nicely, they fail in thc printing, or
if tiley get thc engraving and print
ing done well they fail in securing
tho proper paper.
Of late years there has been a
great deal of care taken to get paper
manufactured expressly for tho
