There is one unanswerable reason
why Gov. McKinley should not be

A great many professional office

Pennsylvania has a Blubeard up-to-date

is accused ot having disposed of two

The Republicans think they have
such a "cinch" on the next President
that they can afford to fight like Kil
kenny cats over the nomination. The
voters may surprise them.
Humph! The Republican book

outsider a fifty to one shot in the

about a month, there was a diminution of

reduoed to the lowest possible minimum.
Then Nye was placed upona slab or board;
his tongue was turned back, ana bis montn,

After this, to all appearanoes, he seemed as

eyes were glassy, and signs of life disappear

and he was ready for the tomb.
The rjlaoe of interment was in the cellar.
A two and a half foot grave was dug. The
body was carefully wrapped and inoased in
an air-tight box, and was lowered and there
left fortheresurreotion, whioh at that time

place Oct. 1. 1894.
A careful inspection was conducted every
evening. The doors were all seourely look

mingled hopes and fears passed and then a

She' Feared the Worst. '
"Give me the pie!"
Out upon the lawn of the Castle Mo-
Murtry stood a young girl just In the
springtide of youth. Some scarlet roses
that swung lazily to and fro in the Dream
of a June morning were not more beautl
ful than those which bloomed so brightly
in the peachy checks of the Lady Con
stance MoMurtry, and her slight but fault
lessly molded figure, set off to perfection by
a plain morning dress of white muslin, had
In Its niovemonts more of grace and beau
ty than those of the gray hound which lay
silently at the feet of its mistress, watch
ing hor evory movement with intelligent
and loving eyes. The girl's rippling gold
en hair was simply tied with a blue rib
bon. The lovely, half childish face was
n poem complete in itself. It was a face
that changed with every thought one
moment gay and bright, In another
thoughtful and sad. As she spoke the
words with which this chapter opens there
was a wistful look upon the pretty faoe,
and the brown eyes shot forth a yearning
wlll-I-cvor-flndrthO'-halrbrush glance that
was pitiful In its sad beauty.
For a moment Lord Wyverne did not
reply. Then, placing his hand on the
girl's shoulder and looking into hor eyes
with a grave tenderness that told how
tho horror of the scene was pressing upon
him, he said in tones that were almost a
sob: "You must be brave, my child, must
nerve yourself to bear a great grief."
"My God!" exclaimed the girl. "Tell
tne what has happened. It surely cannot
be that there is no pier"
"No, my darling," rcpllod the earl. "It
is not so bad as that. Your aunUs dead."
"Ah," said Constance, "how J.u fright

Frank H. Sweet In Donahoe's Magazine.
During the "reign of terror" in
France there wero many deeds of dar
ing performed, even by women, and
many noble examples of affection ex
hibited. The very streets of Paris were delug
ed with human blood, but near the guil
lotine it ran in gushing torrents.
One dark morning an unusual num
ber of the aristocracy had been marched
forth, and conntless heads rolled from
A gaping multitude stood by, and
with shouts rent the air as the aristoo
racy were thus butchered.
Among the assembled multitude that
dreary morning were two women. One
of them was plainly clad, while a cloak
was thrown around her, with which
she kept her features nearly concealed.
But a olose observation would betray
the faot that the woman had been weep
ing. Her eyes were inflamed and red, and
she gazed eagerly npon the platform,
while a shudder passed over her frame
as each shock of the glittering knife
severed the head from the body of some
one who had been unfortunate enough
to fall under the ban of the leaders.
The face of the woman was very beau
tiful, and she was young, certainly noi
more than 16 or 18 years of age.
The other woman was quite different
in character. Her face was fair, but
there was a brazen expression about it.
She was clad in rags, and as each head
fell she would dance, and in various
ways express her delight, and then ex
claim: 'There falls another aristocrat who
refused me charity when I humbly sued
to him 1"
Each expression of the kind would
create a laugh from those who heard
her, but any thonghtful person must
wonder how one so young could have
become so depraved.
The first woman watched this crea
ture for a few moments, and then press
ing her way to her side she laid her
hand npon the shoulder of the wretch
"Would you like to become rich at
Tbe woman in rags turned about with
a look of surprise, burst into a loud
laugh and then replied:
"Of course I would."
"Follow me, and yon shall be. v
"Enough. Lead on.
It was with considerable difficulty
that the females extricated themselves
from the crowd, but they did so at
length, and then the first woman asked
of the other:
"What shall I call yon?"
"Oh, I'm called the beggar girl Ma-
"You live by begging?"
"Yes; but what's your name, and
what do you want?"
"My name is Marie, the same as your

a short time, or until I oome to you

"Oh, I understand now. Yon want to

to represent me?
"Yes. I want to look as near like yon
as possible. "
" Well, that won't be very diffionlt.
Your hair and eyes and even your
mouth are like mine. Your faoe is too
white, though. But you can alter that
with a little dirt."
They exobanged dresses, and soon the
young, rich and noble Marie de Nantes
wo clad in the rags of Maria, tbe beg
gar girt of Paris.
Tbe history of Mario de Nantes was a
sad one. Her father and two brothers
had fallen victims to the remorsolees
Heudi of tbe revolution, and a third and
last brother had been seized. But of his
fate sho was ignorant, although she ex
pected that it would be similar to that
of ber other relatives. He had been torn
from her side but a few hours before.
After the exchange had been made
the pauper looked on the stockingless
and shoeless feet and ankles of the lady
and said: '
"That will never da Your feet .are
toe white and delicate Let me arrange
In a lew moments Marie was pre
pared, and in tbe filth and rags she
emerged into the street
he now took her course back toward
the guillotine, and at length reached
the square where the bloody work was
still going on.
Gradually she forced her way through
the crowd, and nearer and nearer she
came to the scaffold. '
She even forced a langh at several re
marks she beard around her, but these
laughs sounded strangely.
She now stood within a few feet of
the platform and swept it with her
eyes, but her brother was not there.
The cry was now raised:
"Here conies another batch!"
Her heart fluttered violently, and she
fcit a faintness come over her as she
heard the tramp of the doomed men ap
proaching. Her brother walked proudly and fear
lessly forward - and asoended the very
steps which led to the block.
Up to this moment the strength of
poor Marie had failed her, and she was
unable to pnt her resolve into execution.
But now a sister's love swelled np in
ber breast, and she recovered her
She sprang forward, bursting through
the line of guards, and ran up the steps.
Grasping her brother by the hand, she
"What does this mean? It is only the
aristocrats that are to die!"
"Away, woman!" exclaimed oe of
"No; I will not away nntil you tell

"Your brother?" was the echo.
"Yes, this is my brother. "
"Well, who are you?"
"I am Marie; don't you know me?"
"The beggar girl?"
"But this is not yonr brother?" 1
"It is. Ask him ask him."
Young Antonio do Nantes had turned
a scornful gaze npon the maiden, but a
light passed across his face, and he mur
mured: "Oh, my sister!"
"Is this .-our brother?" asked Robes
pierre of the supposed beggar, advanc
ing near her.
"But his name is down differently."
"Then you are mistaken. He is my
brother. Ask him. "
"Does Marie speak the truthV" asked
"She does," was the brother's reply.
"And you are not De Nantes?"
"I tell yon I am her brother. "
"Why did yon not tell us this be
fore?" "I attempted to speak, but was si
lenced." "But yon might have declared your
self." "You would not have believed me."
"But your dress?" '
"It belonged to an aristocrat, per
haps to him for whom I was taken. "
Robespierre advanced close to young
Nantes and gazed earnestly into his
faca Then he approached Marie and
looked steadily in her eyes for a short
It was a moment of trial for the poor
girl She trembled in spite of all her
efforts to be calm. She almost felt that
she was lost, when the human fiend,
whose word was law, turned and said:
"Release the man.'
The chains were instantly removed,
and Antonio de Nantes walked down
from the scaffold, followed by his sis
ter, while the shouts of those around
rent tbe air, for they supposed it was a
commoner who had thus been saved.
The young man worked ' his way
through the crowd as rapidly as possi
ble, leading Marie.
They had scarcely escaped it before
the poor girl fainted from the intensity
of her feelings.
The brother scarcely knew what to do.
but a hand was laid npon his arm, and
a voice said:
"Bring her to my room again. She
will be safe there."
The brother conveyed her to the
apartment of the pauper and asked of
"Have you seen the woman before?"
"Yes. I know all about it," returned
the pauper. "She borrowed my clothes
to save her lover. She has done it, and
I am glad."
Before the noble sister returned to
consciousness the brother had learned
When she did so, they both sought
secure quarters after rewarding the

"Do you think Robespierre was really

The secretary says that "in recent
years the corporation has become a fa
vorite form of investment of private
capital, but the widespread financial
depression that has prevailed through
out the country during the past year
has tended to discourage the projection
of business ventures of any magnitude,
and as a consequence the revenues of

fected." The fees collected amounted to the
sum of $92,921.99, as compared with
$170,301 in 1893, being a decrease of
$77,379.01. Of the fees collected, $6,430
were collected of foreign corporations
under the act of April 25, 1893, and $18,
O50.01 under the act of May 16, 1891.
Deducting these amounts from the total
collections would leave but $07,941.95 of
fees paid by domestic corporations,
which is a decrease over 1893 of $95,
654.05. At the time of his annual settlement
in 1893, there remained in his hands
$33,000, which had been enjoined from
being paid into the state treasury pend
ing litigation, which, having been final

covered into the treasury.
The expenses of the department
amounted to the sum of $23,807.00.
A STICK OF LICORICE.
Where the Plant Grow and now It Ii
Prepared For Consumption.
Black licorice is made from the juice
of the licorice plant, mixed with starch
to prevent it from melting in hot weath
er. The licorice plant grows for the
most part on the banks of the Tigris
and Euphrates rivers, which flow
through immense treeless prairies of un
cultivated laud. The climato of these
great plains is variable. Half the year
it is mild and pleasant, but for three
months it is very cold, and for three
months in summer hot winds sweep
across the country, raising the tempera
ture to 104 degrees for weeks at a time.
The licorice plant is a shrub three
feet high and grows without cultiva
tion in situations where its roots can
reach the water. The usual time of col
lecting is the winter, but roots are dug
all the year round. At first the root is
full of water -and must be allowed to
dry, a process which takes nearly a
year. It is then cut into small pieces,
from six inches to a foot long. The good
and sound pieces are kept, and the rot
ten ones are used for firewood. The lio
orico is then taken in native river boats
of Bassora, whence it is shipped in
pressed bales to London.
As the valley of the Euphrates con
tained one of the earliest civilizations
in the world, it is probable that lioorice
is about the oldest confection extant,
and that the taste, which pleases nearly
all children today, was familiar to the
little brown boys and girls of Babylon
and Nineveh 3,000 years ago. Pitts

Destroyed It Own Identity.
One step from the eublime to tbe
ridiculous. This is an old truism. It
might be said also that comedy and
tragedy are very near to each other at
least so argued that prince of good fel
Iowb, Nat Goodwin.
Seated in Delm,onico's cafe one day
recently, Goodwin was entertaining a
number of friends with porsonal remi
niscences of a European trip. In a de
lightfully ingenuous manner he made
himself the butt in each story, and con
vulsed his auditors with laughter.
Finally he said: "I was walking
down street the other day that is, I
was or another fellow was, it doesn't
moke any difference. You don't want
to spoil a story on technicalities. Any
how I or the other fellow was walking
down street and chanced to pass an ex
"The expressman was loading his
wagon preparatory for his afternoon
round. Of a sudden the forwarding
agent or whatever yon call him came
out with a small dog.
" 'Where's he going?' asked the driv
er. "I don't know.'
" 'Why the don't yon know?'
" 'Now, don't get previous,' said the
forwarding agent. 'I don't know, an it
don't know, an nobody knows. It's et
np its tag, that's tbe reason. ' "
His auditors laughed, but Goodwin
drew a long face. "I say it's pathetic,
he remarked. "Think of the position of
that dog. In a thoughtless moment he
destroyed his own identity. It's a trag
edy in real life." New Yorit iieraia

"Penny wise and Pound fool
ih" are those who 'think it
economy to use cheap rosin
and soda soaps, or washing
powders of any kind, instead
of the good old Dobbins' ElecT
trie Soap; for sale by all gro
cers since 1869, and used dur
ing all that time by million
of intelligent economical wom
en who know its merit, and
therefore use it. All who use
it praise it as the best, cheap
est, and most economical soap
made, but if you will try it,
even just once, it will tell as
much stronger tale of its merits
itself. Ask your grocer for
Dobbins' Electric Soap, take
IjOTTS best articles; other
seek to palm them off on their customers
as tSe genuine, for the sake of the additional
profit made by the deceit. There are lota
of immitations of Dobbins Electric Soap.
