THECOLORED CITIZEN. NOVEMBER 5, 1894.
Itwan about the enu of tho long vaea-^tlon. lie bad been Indiscreet no doubt.^But, after all, no harm had been done, and^now that business was beginning again^the incident would soon become a thing^of the past. He bad p A DO work by re^^maining In town, and be had been unut^^terably bored^that Is to My, at llrst.^Afterward he ^was not beted, but ho was^not quite comfortable. Ho hod met her^ftrst on the bridge In St. James' park. The^lultrinrssof that August night, thesmoth-^rred quacking of a sleepless dnok, the^large raindrop*, tho hurried step behind^him. the amall, pale face nud large, blue^eyes, pet-ring anxiously into the darkne-s^overh^^d, the sudden flash, the little^scream and the long roll of thunder^^these were their Introduction. Sho had^no umbrella, und she was really fright^^ened. He could not have done otherwise,^aud was t^iie to blame for Ix lng grateful^^In tlje flr-t instance he was not In fault.^In the cotirso of n perfectly natural can^venation he lied learned that every night^khe walked homo by tho bridge. No one^was In town. It was too hot for the pit^of any theater, and it was impossible to^read at home. 'I here is no pleasanter^place in London for a stroll than St.^Jaiiu's' park, and the view from the bridge^at night, recall* too calmest rcachoa of the^Isli. She had never I^^^^ n on tho Thames^and lunged for an opportunity. Ho pitied^her and gave himself a treat.
Hocalled her .lennnle, for ha ever^knew her surname. It was not her wont^to talk about herself, and he rather pre^ferrod not to learn tho details of her par^^entage. Shi' bad never mentioned her oc^^cupation, but, 1 ho simple tasrefnlness of^her dtess and the ease with which it fitted^ber pretty figure left little room for donbl^upon this head. Mm had. told him her^birthday once, and he had not forgotten^It. And when she timidly asked hliu to^enhance the value of the locket by giving^her a look of his hair--the wig sat so light^^ly on his brow that the luxuriant growth^of hit dark t, lessee was attlll unimpaired^^he could not hurt her feeling* by refusing.
Theend of the vacation had rome at^last. Men were hank at chambers, and^the friends with whom one dines were^daily returning to town. Besides tho^weather was becoming decidedly unsulted^for evening promenades. But, ns we have^said, lie nkl not feel quite comfortable^about the situation. It would be no doubt^tho easiest thing in tho world to drift^away from this benevolent flirtation, just^as he had drifted Into it, I ut ho did not^like to behavo unkindly. If she had grown^too fond of him, it v as not his fault,^though possibly a natural result of their^relations. It might have liecn better if^the Incident had never occurred, but it was^clear that at its present stage ho could not,^without meanness, I ring I ho acquaintance^to an abrupt termination.
Ina discontented frame of mind he^walked down to the templo one morn^^ing. At. the floor of hi* chamber* bisclerk^met him, witli ^^ brief in his band. ^If^you please, sir, Air. Wilson would be glad^if you would look nfter this matter for^him today. lie Is in the court of appeals.^'I'lie case Is not likely to he reached, as^Jarndyce versus .larndyce, which has been^transferred from tho chancery division, is^In front of it. Anyhow you will not^have much to do, us you bnvo Mr. Snufller^to lead you.^ He took up tho brief, and^hud discovered little, more than that bo^wu* appearing lor the defendunt in a^breach of promise ca-e before It, was time^for him to hurry across the Strand.
Asho entered tho court he met a gen^^eral exodus of Q. C.'s, Juniors and solicit^^ors' clerk*. Forcing his way to tho front,^he confronted an army of barristers'clerks^stacking books and packing papers in^their bugs. He looked at the cause list on^the wall and found the name ^.larndyce^versus .larndyce, part heard,^ erased.^The great case had been unexpectedly set^^tled. A junior engaged in tho next ouao^waa on hi* feet, nnd was asking that, with^the conseut of his friond, it should be nl-^luwed to stand over. Mr. 'muffler, lead^itig counsel fur tho plaintiff, bad been^taken suddenly ill.
Hehad perused fully two thirds of his^brief, w lieu his attention was suddenly ar^^rested by tho words ^Kobinson aguinst^Wiggins.^ His case was culled. Should^he follow tho example of tho junior in the^preceding action^ No, ho would not let^such an opportunity slip. He would fight^And w in.
Soi lie plaint iiT's case was opened. She^was a young lady named Jane ltobiuson^and aged til. Straitened circumstances^hud compelled her to supplement her par^Mis' nieuns by taking employment in a^millinery establishment. Tho defendant,^Alon/o Wiggins, v.is the manager of tho^business, lie bad forced his attentions^upon her und had llnully induced her to^consent to bet ome Ins wife. Tho engage^^ment had lasted foe some months, when^the defendunt broke 11 of without any^pretext, except that I lie plaint i If had found^It impossible in w dk witli him every even-^lug, ami he now denied that ho had ever^promised marriage.
Thecounsel for khe defendant had been^wutching the demeanor of his client^a^large carroty headed man of -10^so closely^that he did not show IS tho plaintiff until^khe was in tho box. A soft, sweet voice^Ml BBSS] Ins car with strange familiarity.^He looked up. Gracious he,n, ii-l

TheSugar Turin' lllds t in to Overthrow^Free Trade. Doctrine.
Thesugar tariff is causing the Demo^^cratic pai va great deal of trouble at^the ptojMli time. In Louisiana tho rev^^olution that is going on promises to^overthrow the present stare authorities^ami put the st:ite back again in the pro^^tective column. The men who are con^^tending for a tariff on sugar today can^In nowise lie railed enemies of tho true^DoaaOCratir principle, for if there lie^any product of this country that is a fit^subject for revenue sugar is tho most^reasonable.
TheDemocratic policy of shifting the^tariff so as to expose the producers of^raw sugar to foreign competition and at^the same tunc protect the manufacturer^of ret'med sugar, w hile also destroying^or repealing the law granting all sub^^sidies or bounties, N-comes too appai-^i nt for reason or argument that such^lAgjslatiosj is unfriendly to the sugar^grow er of Louisiana and is favorable to^tiie sugar producer of foreign countries.
TheRepublicans contended for free^raw sugar, but they granted a bounty^eqnal to 2 cents per pound of protection,^by winch the sugar industry of this^country was stimulated beyond anything^over known before for the period of two^years. This has all lieen sot aside by those^who have gone crazy over tho idea of^free trade. Tit country is to be con^^gratulated that there is an uprising of^Louisiana such as will overthrow free^tiade Democracy and again bring the^American sugar industrial interest un^^der the fostering care of a protection^party.
rremonitor.vSymptoms Preventive* and^Simple Treatment.
Attacksof sunstroke, lieing due to heat^sJoOO, are not confined to any particular^tlimate or country. An attack may occur^When- a person is cxpo-ed to great artificial^heat. It is a common theory that sun^^stroke is only to Im feared from exposure^to the direct rays of thesun. On the con^^trary, persons living or working in over^^heated rooms, factories or shops tire liable^to he attacked by one of tho forms of In^^solation.
Thecondition of the hotly often renders^one -ulijecf loan attack Vigorous.healthy^persons, leading regular, temperate lives,^are able to endure a great anion nt of heat^without 111 effects Loss of sleep, excite^^ment, worry, debility or abuse of stimu-^lants predisposes to sunstroke Sunstroke^pro|ier may come on very rapidly, during^exposure of the head and splno to the di^^rect rays of tho sun. Often the action of^the heart Is stopped by tho effect of the^heat.
Thesymptoms of the real coup de soleil^are unconsciousness, cold skin, spasmodio^brent hing and a feeble pulse. Death usual^^ly result! from t he rapid failure of circula^^tion and rc-piration. In another form,^known as neat fever, the symptoms are^gasping for breath, restlessness, thirst And^burning heat uf the skin, which is some-^tine- dry. sometimes moist. In almost^every case of sunstroke tho head, faeo and

Thepremonitory symptoms of insole.^Hon are often manifest for hours and some^^times days before the attack proper takes^place. These symptoms are often restless^^ness, sleeplessness, giddiness, headache,^nausea and I hirst.
Theattack is more likely to occur on^tho second or third tlay of n heated terra^than on the lir-t. Attacks are more gen^^eral if tin' weather is muggy. The attack^Is more apt to take place between 11^In the morningand 4 ill the afternoon.
Thollrst preventive is simple. On a hot^day wear thin clothing. While in tho sun^wear a light colored hat, straw being pref^^erable. It is safer to place inside the hat^a damp cloth or a large green leaf. Tho^cloth should be kept wet. One of the best^preventives is to see that one's skin is^kept moist. Kncoiirageperspiration. Tem^^perate drinking of water will generally^keep It up. A thin umbrella or other light^covering over the head will lessen the dan^^ger of being overcome. If fatigued, stop^all work, especially If It be In the sun. If^troubled with a headache or dizziness, stay^In tho shade and bathe the head and neck^in cold water. When Indoors, keep tho^room well ventilated.
Incases of mere prostration the treat^^ment is simple. Removal to a cooler lo^^cality, loosening of thu clothing about tho^chest and neck and the administering of^stimulants may be beneficial. If tin* skin^Is hot and dry, the sufferer should bo^placed in a sitting position.

RYLANDTt THE GELLdNG CHAMPION.
Someof the Many Trifles of l.onil Breeding^Which She Observes.
Ifone is invinsl to a friend's house, the^first thing in order, according to Harper's^Baxar, is to decide w hether or not she can^go. If, on consideration, It seems that the^Invitation can be accepted, it should on^no account lie lightly thrown over in favor^of some later suggestion. The invitation^having Is-en accepted, it is well to let tho^length of thu contemplated visit he def^^initely prescribed lioih hostess and guest,^will proceed more intelligently ami more^comfortably if this Ik) understood.

City ami country terminal facil^^ities differing, no hard and fast rule can^be laid down about luggage.
Informedof the family roiitine.theguest^Is never tardy. She does not Irritate the^punctual man of the house by keeping the^breakfast back, nor is she so early that the^hostess, coming down five minutes before^tho morning meal, feels like a culprit on^hearing the visitor's cheerful announce^^ment that she has been down a half hour.

AHint on Fruit Preserving.
Avery gissl authority on fruit preserv^^ing considers that the plan followed by^many hotisekec|mts of using a small pro^portion of sugar and in conseiiucnce boil^lug the preserve longer is a fallacy, as the^more sugar used the greater tho hulk of^the preserve obtained, less being wasted^In long boiling nnd evaporation, while tho^flavor of the fruit Is more retained. A^quick fire should is- used, nnd of course^the preserve continually stirred, the skuin^being taken off as it rises. To judge If the^preserve has boiled long enough drop a lit^^tle into a glass of cold water. If tt does not^spread or mix, it is done enough. Or an^^other way is to drop a little on a plate. If^it does nor run on tin plate, it is sufficient^^ly boiled and should et once la- jioured.
