pace, consuming a half-hour'e tlrao, per.

then halted in front of a log callin built on
the edge of a deep gulch.
Night bad now fallen, but a light glowed
through tbe one front window, assuring the
Captain that ua occupant was within. He
went at once and rapped. When the door
opened in answer to his summons be

an ill-looking crone, who had been engaged
in the Interesting operation of getting

ly. Her eyes were sunken d ep under a
narrow skull and looked very like two black,
twinkling beads. There wus tbo glitter of
avarice plainly revealed. Her visitor knew
ber well, and was cautious enough not to
commit himself In a way that might after
word prove dangerous.
"Sit down and let ut buve aquiot talk,
aiotlior," be said, at tho same time placing
himself equurt ly on a rickety cbolr. Bho
followed his example, and at they sat there
they made an odd picture he with bis un
spotted garments, wilh oiled and combed

was undiscovorubla from grcaso and dirt,

A uniquo picture indeed. .
"Now, then, Mr. Btarbright, I'm all ear,"
the said, carefully depositing ber clay pipe
on tbe floor, and leaning forward until ber
gaunt form, with pointed chin resting on
her attenuated palm, resembled a semicir
cle of bone.
"I'd lOce," said the Captain, "for this
newcomer at Lone Hollow to depart from

A low, withering chuckle that caused hit

He glared at hit companion, then sprang
to hit feet with a muttered imprecation.
"I'll have nothing to do with you, old

more than the expected. Tbe greater part
of bit indignation wat timuleted, evidently.

NAILS AND HAIR.
Sclenllfle ObwriiUoni Rotating to Their
Foruimtloa and Gruwtb.
The following interesting observations
have been mado by Berlhold, of Gottingun.
He found that nails which were out off re
formed quicker in children tbaa adult, and
in these than in old people ; that they formed
quicker In summer than m winter (a nail
which in summer would be repaired in lit
days, in winter is repaired in 153) ; that tha
nails on the right hand reformed quicker
than those of the left; that tbe nail of dif
ferent finger reformed in different time;
on both bands tbe nail of the middle finger
wa moat quickly reformed; thenthoaeof
the ring and index finger, which were
nearly equal; tbe nail and tbe little
linger took a much longer time, and tb
Utile finger rather the longest, particularly
on the left hand.
A regard tbe hair, Bortbold found that
in person from 18 to 84 years old, whose
bair had been cut off for fever, etc, tb
length bad reached In two years from 13 to
16 inches, giving an average of seven line
per mouth. By cutting off tha bair of th
beard (wetted witb rain water only) with
very sharp knifo, every 12, M, or M hour,
measuring them with tbe micrometer, and
weighing them, Bcrthfild arrived at th fol
L The growth is Increased the oftenerth
hair is cut ; thus tbe beard out every twelvt
hour, grows at the rate of from five and t
half to twelve inches a year; cut every
twenty-four hours, It grows at tbe rate ot
from flvs to seven and a half lnchea per
year; cut every thirty -six hours, it growl
st the rate of from four to six and three
quarter lnchoe per year. The woighta cor

experimenter' beard would be 318 grains;
cut every twenty-four hour, It would be
only 280 grain. 2. Tbe bair grow more
quickly during the day than at night, and
