I sat, as had grown to bo my custom,

short candlo on tho table. Besides
thi3 candle tho table held pens,
ink, paper and an odd copper salver
with a heavy wrought rim in antiquo
design, the center a smooth, polished, sur
face. An odd ornament for this strango
place, I thought. I looked at the pens.

Suddenly, I seemed to hear or feel a hu

defeated its own object. Tho blood
whirred in a heavily pulsing stream past

brain. Liko a flash tho whito, floating,
illuminato flguro came and melted away,
at tho other end of tho wall, as I felt
through tho tapestry curtain tho contact
of a passing human figure closo by mo!
Now I knew that what I had seen had
been a reflection! No wonder it had
melted to nothingness whon I seized it.
I waited a few seconds, and then slip

to linow last night, I entered tho gallery.
It was, as I expected to find it, dark and

The storm was now at its height.
Waves of wind and water seemed testing

Suddenly a blinding flash of lightning
came, like a stream of liquid fire, pour

it were, the entire gallery and outlining ,

no fixed purposo inducing me, perhaps,
still not quite recovered from tho electric
shock. Mechanically I picked up tho
copper waiter which now lay on the floor,
and which I had seen, when the vivid
lightning had. come, in the woman's hand.
I started at tho sight of it. Its former
glittering surface was so no longer; burnt
into it and confronting mo were tho fea
tures of a well known face. How well I
knew those long, almond eyes! that
gracefully curved chin! tho thin, tightly
I recalled somo broken sentences:
"Drops not strong enough white powder

A sudden, torriblo suspicion broke upon
mo as Reynolds Ilerholf's ghastly face,
growing thinner and thinner daily, rose
beforo me. Sbo was giving him drop3
daily a Spanish tonic, lie had told me
and was murdering her own husband be
foro my eyes!
I sat down to debate what I should do.
By Thursday, tho man whom I now knew
to bo tho scoundrel Alvarez had said, all
would bo over. It was already Tuesday.
Too lato to hope for his recovery, per
haps, but I must attempt it. Yet how?
Ho could bear littlo excitement in his
weak condition, yet to tell him without
causing excitement was impossible. The
waiter would condemn her, but could hs
survive tho discovery? I had scarcely
reached my room when thero was a knock
upon my door, and I obeyed a summons
to Reynolds' room.
Beads of moisture stood upon his brow,
and ho breathed with Intense difficulty.
Ho apologized for disturbing mo to keep
him company, but the storm had made
"Besides," ho went on, "I thought I
heard a scream, a fearful, horrible scream,

him to swallow a littlo of tho stimulant.

his head sadly.
Tho sick man still slept, and I stepped
softly to tho adjoining room. I turned
tho key, lifted tho latch, and ventured a
cautious glanco behind tho porticro.
In tho room beyond tho room in which
I stood, Anita, Herholf, tho most beauti
ful woman I had ever seen, was a raving
maniac. Her long hair hung like a thick
cloud about her; her magnificent cye3

ing torn and disordered; and as sho I
swayed her slim, gracoful figure back and
forth iu a movement almost snake liko in '
its suppleness, bho uttered a dog liko

into tho revolting sound that reached

been developed by tho efrain her nerv

no hope of recovery. Hi3 wifo was placed

I had undoubted proofs that my sus

might givo herself legally to tho villain

marry during his lifetime. Ho, Alvarez,
having just left tho gallery as the bolt

never lived to bo punished for his crimes.

United States Army Scouts.
United States army scouts may be di
vided into two classes: white men, who
rank as chief cf scouts, and Indian scouts,
who are organized as military companies.
Tho whito scouts are usually men who
have been employes of tho San Carlos md
Mescalero Apache reservations, or Indian
agencies. They are, from constant associ
ation with the Indians, well acquainted
with their character and habits, and fre
quently speak a littlo Apache, Tho
Apaches, with few exceptions, speak
Spanish, and it is usually the languago
they uso in communicating with tho In
dian agent and tho employes of tha
agency. A white man who makes himself
useful to the Indians bv doing them little
favors is, in time, taught "to read sign."
This may be said to complete the education
of a chief of scouts.
It would be beyond the scope of a news
paper article to "describe how "sign" is
read, nor would anything jcavo practical
demonstration convey any comprehensive
idea to the reader. A scout who can read
"sign" can tell you by examining a trail
over which horses have passed if they
were ridden or led, and if both, tho num
ber ridden and the number led. Even
when shod he can tell whether tho horses
were American or Mexican. If tho trail
bo made by men oa foot, he can tell if it
bo an Indian trail, or simply tho trail of
Mexicans wearingioccasins. Iaa hostile
party he can tell by the trail how many
are bucks and how xaanyAcra squaws and
children, and so oa vers field of observa
tion as ertansivo as Interesting. The
scout thus qualified finds xo difficulty ia
obtaining employment ia the southwest,
where Apacho outbreaks are of almost
yearly occurrence. Coa A. Autkeny ia
Cowbells "Ware on Roadway.
An eccentricity of toUet seen in Broad
way, and heard, too, consists of cowbell
worn by fashionable women. These cu
rious adjuncts are shaped like the old
fashioned tinkling bells which were bos
pended to one cow's neck in a herd, so
that the beasts could be easily found
when they strayed away in -the woods,
but they are smaller, being only about
three inches long. The metal is brass,
with embellished surfaces, although in
extreme cases of extravagance gold may
be used. They dangle at the ends of
chains from the wearer's belt, and the
clappera tinkle against the inner sides
with more or les3 noise according to the
gait of the girL If she treads hard and
fast, thero is considerable ringing, but if
she be an easy stepper the sound is only
an occasional clink, something like that
of tho brass heels once worn on shoes.
It is to be hoped that these bells wfll not
"ring out the old" notions of modesty,
or "ring in the new" ones of audacity;
but there probably i3 no danger of the
style getting into vogue with other than
those who desire to force attention to
themselves. New York Sun.
Tho Baby In Arabia.
0 the fortieth day tho baby's head ia
shaved a ceremony which could scarcely
be performed in our own country, where
thick hair is usually of a later growth.
This operation is considered a very im
portant one, and thirty or forty persons
aro witnesses to it, for tho performance
of certain rites.
The disposal of the first hair is regarded
as a very weighty matter; it must not be
burned nor carelessly thrown away, but
buried, thrown into tho sea, ox hidden in
some crevice of a wall.
This fortieth day marks a turning point
in the child's life. Heretofore it has only
been seea by its parents, the slaves on
duty and a few intimate friends of the
family; now, howover, it may be 6een by
anybody, and is regarded as fairly
launched on tho tide of existence.
