and other uncanny things.
Wc were on tl ie roof of tho cathe
dral at Milan. Wo had climbed th?
stairs in the late afternoon of 4
beautiful spring day af ter. paying
the custodian the insignificant price
be asked for all the glories visible
from the elevated station. We had
looked through the telescope for an
other fee and had each assured the
others that we saw Mont Blanc per
fectly well without for a moment
believing what the others said or
convincing them that we told the
truth and had ended our climbs by
ascending to the highest point un
der the lantern, if it is a lantern, by
the corkscrew staircase, which will
scarcely permit any but tho thinnest
persons to pass when one is [going
up and the other coming down.
Wc were a party 01 four, and
when the roof was reached the
youngest proposed a ramble over
that portion of the structure. To
this all but myself assented. I was
tired and proposed to rest awhile at
the foot of tho tower stairs, where
the others were to pick me up on
their return, so that we might all
descend together. This was satis
factory, and off they started. I i
For a time I was quite comforta
ble and paid no attention to the
passage ot time, but I suddenly no
ticed that it was getting dark and
that my companions had not re
turned. I called to them first in a
moderate tone of voice, then more
loudly, but received no answer.
Fearing that they would be be
lated on the roof, I started in search
of them. I walked the entice length
of the ridge of the main roof and
peered down all the side passa ces in
the gathering dusk, but caught no
glimpse of my companions. Then I
descended to the roof of the aisle
and made a search there, which was
also fruitless. I became alarmed as
the light failed and ran from one
point to another, calling out as--1
ran, until I found, to my great dis
tress, that I had lost my way. I.
could see far below reo the lights of
the great city and hear the distant
rumbling of the carriages as they
drove past on the stony streets.
But I was as effectually lost for
the moment as if I had been in the
heart of an African jungle without
a compass and no Stanley on the
alert to hunt me up. In the excite
ment and despair which the con
sciousness of thi^ fad produced I
rushed about so wildly that I slipped
and fell on a long flight of stone
steps, wet with the dew which had
begun to fall. I was not conscious
of any serious mjury-froto'ilie fall,
but when I brought hp at nie loot
of the stairs and tried to regain my
footing I found, to my despair and
horror, that I was^utterly unable to
move my limb?, l^wal paralyzed.
The mental agony- I -Buffered is
inconceivable. Yet, curiously enough,
I spent the first moments in specu
lating as to the exact nature of tho
injury I had sustained. Had I bro
ken my back or simply injured my.
spinal cord? I tried to recall what
I had heard my doctor friends say
about injuries of a similar charac
ter, but could not seem to remember
anything definite. The words, "the
fifth pair," flashed into mjr mind
and appeared to connect themselves
in Borne Way with my condition, but
whether it was the fifth pair of
nerves or ribs or of "something else
I could not make oui
I could , not understand .either
how I could havo been so seriously
injured without any sensible shock,
but that my power of locomotion
was gone there was no .doubt. I
could move my hands, and I began
to speculate on the number of things
one could do with one's handa'aloue.
This occupied me for what seemed
to be an hour, but aa the train of
thought was interrupted by a clock
striking the hour of midnight I con
cluded it must have been much lon
ger and wondered I had not heard
the preceding hours.
Suddenly the full horror of my
condition flashed upon me. I was
not only doomed to remain where I
was, helpless and alone, during the
long, chilly hours of the night, but
there was no certainty that I would
ever get away aliveT My friends
would never dream that I was there.
They had undoubtedly concluded
that I had gone down, and if thej
missed me would search everywhere
but in the right place. It might
be days before the particular spot
in which I lay would be visited, and
in that case it would be too late.
Starvation would do for me even il
the injury I had received did not.
In my anguish I shrieked aloud, but
was dully conscious all the timo that
nobody could hear me. Visitoi
and custodians alike must haye dc
parted hours before, and even if m
cries were heard from the street
below nobody would attribute thor,
to their real source. "
To the feeling of acute unguis
succeeded one of blank despair,
no longer speculated on the posai
hility pf being discovered, dead c
alive. There was a dull, leaden f e?
ing at roy chest, and I found mysel
repeating mechiinically old rhymt
jingles and saying the alphabc
tockward, a* I onra^ear?ccTto do
ia seeking relief from insomnia.
.Yet at the same time I was oou
eeioutt that my whole Ufo was pass
ing in review before nie, as they say
it does when ono is drowning or be
ing hanged I remembered that
i awing, too, and without any cessa
tion, of tfce s?rie w I wondered in
9jf?o9bwi consciousness if I were
ra?^rgoi?,j the sensations of a
I Browning man or of ono being
hanged and wished I could put
them down on paper for the benefit
of tho rc?t of mankind.
?What et ruckmo aa singular waa
t#at the clocks kept on striking
SI. / Tho second tinte they did this
I thought I mu at have lost con
* eciousness for au entire day and that
this was the second midnight. But
when the third stroke of 12 came
from half a dozen clocks I knew it
could not be two days since I had
I thought first that I had become
demented, and then it occurred to
me that if I were X could not reason
about it in that fashion, so the
clocks themselves must be crazy.
This theory satisfied me until fV"?
striking began again, when I went
off in another fantastic speculation.
My friends had discovered that I
was missing and were having the
bells rung to keep my spirits up.
Oh, the long, long, weary hours I
spent in waiting/for a glimpse of
daylight 1 I had no hope that day
light would bring me any relief, but
the prospect of staving where it was
endless midnight seemed unendura
ble. I groaned and wept and dug
my nails into the palms of my hands
until it seemed as if the blood would
come, but I did not even feel any
sense of pain.
It must have been after the clocks
had struck midnight a dozen times
or more-I kept no exact account
that I saw in the distance at what
seemed to be the farther end of the
cathedral roof two faint glimmers
of light. Presently there were two
more and then two more, until there
was a regular procession of them. 1
tried to shout, but had become so
weak with cold and suffering that ]
could not raise my voice above a
The lights nevertheless approach
<?d, growing gradually stronger, un
til I could see that they wers borne
by several black robed figures thai
were marching beside a coffin. Ai
the procession moved slowly towarc
me I began to wonder what it meanl
and whether funerals took place al
midnight on the roof of lilian ca
thcdral. Then I speculated a mo
ment on the propriety of disturbing
the obsequies even in my extrem?
need. Suddenly, it dawned upo'n m<
that this was my own f op?rai, and ]
knew that I was either dead or hat
gone mad. In the supreme anguisl
. of this discovery all memory of pas
suffering was blotted out, and 1 en
tered on a new period of the mos
exquisite torture. Fortunately i
was of brief duration. As the fore
most of the moving figures reache?
me lafelt a grasp on my arm, and i
voice called in my ear:

ORIGIN OF THE ROSARY,
An Interesting Legend Associate* lt j
With * Garland of Roses.
Tracing the origin of the rosary
back to times and places far remote,
Father Thurston, who read a paner
before t?ie Society of Arti, pointed
ont that it would bo * great mistake
to suppose that tho tue of bead? for
counting prayers was peculiar to
the Catholic church or was of com
paratively modern date. To deter
mine at what time the name rosary
(rosenkrans) was introduced is ex
tremely difficult. Garlands of roses,
implying a reference to the term
rosary, were a conspicuous feature
of pictures and tablets of the fif
teenth century, but before this no
clear examples are forthcoming. At
that epoch it was common for both
men and women in ordinary life to
Wear garlands of flowers and to
place them as a mark of respect
upon the heads of persons and .stat
ues. Father Thurston is strongly
inclined to believe that its applica
tion to the particular devotion now
under discussion was mainly due tc
the popularity of a certain story ol
a garland which can be traced very
much earlier than the word^rtself in
almost every part of the Christian
world. The name must have come
from the story, and the story was
not evolved out of an already pre
The legend in question is briefly
this: A youth was accustomed to
make a wreath of roses or other
flowers every day and to place it
upon the head of Our Lady's stat
ue. He became a monk, and*in the
cloister his occupations no longer
permitted him to observe this pious
practice. Being much distressed,
he,asked counsel of an aged priest,
who advised him to say his Aves ev
ery evening, which would be accept
ed by Our Lady in lieu of the gar
land. This the young man faithful
ly observed until one day while on a
journey he had *;o pass through a
lonely wood, where robbers were
lying in wait. Quite unsuspicious
of their presence, he suddenly re
membered that his Aves wero not
yet said and forthwith stopped to
say them. Then, to their surprise,
the robbers saw a most glorious lady
stand before him and take one after
another from the lips of the kneel
ing monk fifty beautiful roses,
which she wove into a garland and
placed upon her head. The robbers,
conscience stricken at the vision,
were all converted to a Detter life,
and themselves soon after entered
the monastery.-Londou Telegraph.
Dodging a Promise.
The youthful attorney secured a
verdict in favor of the Irishman
charged with murder on the ground
of temporary insanity. Hoi aid not

A struggling, modest lawyer near
Stroudsburg, says the Philadelphia
Times, received a call from a well
to do farmer who was in need of
professional advice concerning his
rights, which he thought ignored
by a section gang on a railroad.
Tho lawyer looked up the statutes,
told the farmer exactly what ho
should do and when asked as to the
fee replied, "Well, lef s call it just
$3." The farmer passed over a five
dollar bill, which seemed to embar
rass the lawyer, who searched
through his pockets and the draw
ers of his desk. Then he pocketed
the fe, reached for a digest, sat
down and remarked, "I guess, neigh

The Despair and Reproach of tho 1
It waa by rheumatic twinges in
his joints that Adam was able to
fo.ocast foul weather, and it Was
rheumatism- -which tortured Noah
during the damp days of the deluge.
Old as this malady is known to be,
it still remains the same stupendous
and baffling mystery and the same
despair and reproach of the medical
profession. Now, as before the
Christian era, its treatment is em
pirical and its prognosis blind guess
work. Of all the manifold afflic
tions which restrain tho natural
gayety of mankind this elusive dis
ease is the least about which the
doctors have any right to dogma
tize. Their proper attitude toward
rheumatism is one of humility and
awe. However, with arrogance vhich
approa^ies shameless effrontery,
they have recently affirmed that it
is contagious; that a person of the
most blameless life may acquire ita
seeds by consorting with a rheu
matic friend or neighbor under fa
voring circumstances. It may be
so; but, considering their appalling
ignorance of its causes and its na
ture and what tissues it involves,
they can show no warrant for any
such alarming announcement.
Surely it is enough that tho rheu
matic sufferer is without the hope
of human aid, is the victim of the
physician's impotence and is al
ready shunned by the sensitive as a
center of moral pestilence without
his being .proscribed as a source of
physical infection. Pugnacity, ir
ritability and sometimes even pro
fanity are characteristic of acute
rheumatism. The moral descent of
a good man in the throes of this ail
ment is as pathetic as it is deplora
ble, so piteous, indeed, that con
siderate friends who are expert at
j dodging often leave harmless mis
siles within his reach that he may
vary the monotony of pain with the
I pleasure of personal assault. To
proclaim that rheumatism is con
tagious is to drive from the pres
ence of the victim all sympathetic
! friends and condemn him to the ex
I elusive care of the hardened profes
sional nurse.-New York Times.
Recipe For Happiness.
One of the youngest looking wo
men we have ever known was one
whose principle in life was never to
expect too much o? people, and in
this lies the great secret of happi
ness. A large amount of worry and
trouble comes from our too great
expectations of people. We expect
too much of our children, for ex

all thia we thirk bitter things and
