AFTER MANY YEARS.
Tfc Interesting; Bnunra of a Devoted
Portland Woman! Ufa.
"Do you Me that lady looking into a
shop window, just across tho street?"
Mid a merchant to a Journal scribe re
cently. The scribo looked in tho direc
tion referred to and saw a well-drcsied
lady ot rather distinguished appearance
of perhaps forty-five, admiring one oi
the show windows in n dry-goods store.
"Tho history of that woman's life is
stranger than fiction," said tho mer
chant. '-She lives In Portland. When
young girl sho fell desperately in love
with a poor fellow, who returned her
affections, but didn't have money
enough to pay tho parson for marrying
them. After a deal of consideration by
both of them, it was decided that ho
should start for China to seek his for
tune, and that sho should remain be
hind and wait for his return. She inado
t vow that sho would not marry for
three years, and If, at the expiration of
that time, he had not returned, she
would bo at perfoct liberty to act at her
own pleasuro about matrimony.
Accordingly, tho lover boarded the
first ship he could find that was bound
for that port, and the lovers parted.
Sis months passed and the girl heard
not a word from her lover. A year
went by, and no lottor. The girl grew
almost distracted, for she came to tho
conclusion that he had either gone back
on her or was dead. A second Year
went by and nothing was heard from
him. At this time another gentleman
began paying his attentions to tho lady,
and finally asked for her hand in mar
riage. The girl thought of her vow
and said no, not until the thrco years is
past. The second man urged her with
all his powor to marry him. He ofiorod
her wealth, and every luxury that
money could buy; but sho was true to
her vow, and said that sho would not
marry till tho expiration of the threo
years. Long beforo this sho had sup
posed her lover dead.
The end of the third year was draw
ia$ to a close, and she had promised
tho ardent suitor, who had been paying
her every honor in his power for a
- year and a half, that when tho timo
,was up sho would marry him on tho
i 'following day, if hor former lover did
not return. Tho day came, and the
man didn't return from China. On
that very day tho woddlng bells wero
rung, and they were united in mar-
t rigv Hardly had the marriage cere
mony, been performed; when a ship
came into tho bay from China, and on
board was her lover, who had loft her
thrco yoara ago to gain a fortune for
them both returned. Imagino if you
can her grief, when sho saw him. He
i eaino back abundantly rich, 'to claim
( her as his bride? and she had three days
before married .another. Tho blow
nearly crushed thum both. But six
years woro away, and in tho meantime,
tho man married and wont out West to
live. In a few years his wlfo died. Ho
had not hoard ono word from his old
lovo for many years, and one day,
merely from curiosity, he addrossod a
letter to her brother, Inquiring if she
was alivo, and if so whero she resided.
He received a letter shortly afterward
that sho had been a widow for soverai
years, and wns living near Portland.
The gontleman left for Portland on tho
next train, and In less than a week's
time they wcro marrlod, and to-day
they are living happily together in tho
suburbs of Portland. Lewiston Me.)

Everybody iu Wayno County knows
"Rattlesnake Jim" at least evory
person in the southwestern part of tho
county is conscious of the fact that
there is such a person in existence. To
many he Is known as Jamos Jofiroy,
lawyer. Until recently he was a prac
titioner at tho.Wayno County bar, but
abandoning 'tho legal profession ho
sought a homo on a stretch of' prairie
in the southwestern part of the county,
where with his family ho has resided
for some years. Tho sobriquet oi
"Rattlesnake Jim" was attached to
him on acoount of his propensity for
capturing rattlesnakes. The surround
ings of his homo gave him full sway in
that inclination, as ho has in
vaded the homo of tho- rattlors.
For three years past ho has been.
catching rattlesnakes for various
parties, and upward of several hun
dreds of reptiles havo boon captured by
him in that time. The reptiles are the
prairie1 rattlesnakes or massasauges,
a' very poisonous reptile. His iuodo of
securing them Is to worry tho snake
with a cano or stick until his anake'shlp
becomes cowed, which ho assorts will
bo in a.yery whort time, and, then pick
htm up, ana no win oo as Harmless as
a kitten. He claims that snakes form
the acquaintance of persons . tho" samo
as any other animal. From experience
he has learned that the Btiakes make
their appearance some timo in May
and then disappear in August, lying
dormant ior nine montns. a snatu
will not receive rattles until two years
old. Ho relates that he had frequently
heard that snakes would swallow their
young when danger threatened, but
alwavs was suspicious of the statement
until he saw the statement veriliod. He
encountered an old female garter-snake
with a lot of young ones one day. He
approached tho snnkes and the old
female opened her mouth. Into whch
tho voune ones glided with lightning
rapidity. He killed the old snake and
found twelvo young ones inside of hor.
According to his statement a snake
would be a paying boardor, as one frog
is sufficient food for a year. Jeffrey
strongly advances the claim that snake
catching is a gift possessed by persons
with suilolent magnetism in tnem to

A GREAT MONOPOLY.
History of the Powerfal AMoclatlon oi
Wail-Paper Manufacturers .
In tho stores of tho high-toned inte
rior decorators whero estimates aro
mado on all tho work connected with
fitting up a room, and tho wealthy
customer considers prices no object,
ono seldom hears of tho "combi nation. ' '
But In visiting tho gcnulno wall-paper
stores whero nothing but wall-paper is
sold, tho customer is often puzzled by
hearing tho clerk speak of a certain
paper as being one of the "combina
tion" papers.. To tho cxistenco of this
''combination" is due tho wealth of tho
American wall-paper manufacturers.
and tho rapid advance which Interior
decoration has mado within the last ten
years. Previous to that time tho manu
facture of wall-paper In this country
was in its infancy, and the papers mado
here had no standing In competition
with thoso of foreign makes, especially
thoso of Franco and England. Thcro
wero only a few manufacturers here,
and most of those did not attompt to
make a very Hno grade of paper. To
bo sure, tlioro wero ono or two firms
who mado flock or velvet papers, in
which tho figures wero raised, and tho
paper which had a gold background
was perhaps better mado then than
much of tho samo kind manufactured
now; but those firms wero exceptions.
nnd most of tho paper manufactured
was of a very Inferior quality.
.French anu Kngllsn wall-paper was
imported for tino trado almost exclu
sively. Very fow artists woro em
ployed by American manuiacturcrs,
most of tho American wall-papers be
ing copies, and, in great part, wretched
ones, too, of French papers.
Tho "combination' as it Is termed
In tho trade. Is ono of tho greatest
monopolies In tho country. It con
sists of an association of tho most im
portant wall-paper manufacturers for
the purpose of keeping up tho prices
at which wall-papers aro sold, both
Wholesalo and retail.
It was started livo years ago. Near
ly all tho largo manufacturers In tho
country went into it. Laws nnd by
laws wero framed, and each manufact
urer who joined tho combination
signed an agreement to abido by tho
laws and filed a bond of several thou
sand dollars, which ho agreed to for
feit in caso he violated any of tho laws.
By this agreement tho prices of nil tho
grades of wall-papers wero fixed. Tho
cheapest wall-p.ipcr, known to tho
trade as "brown blanks," it was agreed
to sell for not less than six cents per
roll; tho "whito blank," next In grade,
was to bring nine cents; tho bronze,
twenty-eight and thirty-two cents, ac
cording to quality; nncf "gold grounds"
wcro to bring sixty cents. These
prices have changed, but littlo since
But this was only part of tho purposo
of tho "combination." An officer was
elected, at a salary of 810,000 per year,
whoso solo duty was to decide, in caso
of dispnto, tho quality of n wall-paper
and tho price it should sell for. It was
also agreed not to sell to any jobber or
dealer who did not sign n cast-iron
compact, In which he agreed not to
sell any wall paper, whether bought
from rjiannfacnrers within or outslduof
tho "combination," for less than
"combination" prices. Tho ''combi
nation'' also fixed tho'mlnlmum prices
at which'wall paper could bo -retailed,
which was several cents higher for each
grade than tho mamtfacturcrVprlco.
The jobber or doaler had to deposit
$500 forfeit with tho officers of 'tho
"combination" after slgnlngtho agree
ment and manufacturers and dealers
woro closely watched to see that thoy
did not break tho rules on tho sly.
Tho "combination" became a power
at once, Tho few manufacturers and
dealers who did not join were squeezed
into a corner. Tho latter especially
suffered, as thoy could not buy from
tho manufacturers In tho "combi
nation" at any prices, and thoso out of
it had not sufficient variety to meet
their wants. They soon repented and
joined the association, leaving out only
a few dealers who catered entirely to
a cheap class of trado. Buoyed up by
this enormous monopoly tho manufact
urers in tho scheme grow rapidly very
wealthy, branched out In new fields,
imported artists and machinery from
Europe and wero soon manufacturing
almost as fine ( wall-papers as the
imported; while' the is manufacturers
who stayed out lost all trado" and had
to succumb. Tho "combination" used
all it tremendous power to crush these
unfortunate independents. A woman
who had a small factory on Long
Island rocolvcd $30,000 to join tho
"combination." Sho took tho money
and shut down the works, declaring
that sho had received more money In
ono lump than she could ever hopo to
mako out of her factory. Several
others wcro bought out and tho monop
oly stood almost without competition:
In order to givo manufacturers and
dealers a chance to get rid of poor and
surplus stock, it, was decided that dur
ing tho montns of July and August tho
"combination" should bo considered
off. That was one blow at its power,
for it onabled some of the dealers who
wanted to buy goods in, those , months
from all .manufacturers without stipu
lation, and after this plan was adopted
more retailers became independent f ' ,
Many other changes ; have ; been
brought t about In the five years this
monopoly- has existed. Dealers have
learned ways of getting papers at all
times from manufacturers in tuo "com
bination," although they themselves,
did not join. Thus it has lately been
considerably weakened. N. Y. Mail

raU-Sowlne an t Its Man Advantages
I have for years past adopted fall
sowing as in every way preferable to
spring sowing, and the seed is sown
aloue and without any foster crop to
rob it of food, light and air in return
for the very questionable sholter af
forded. Shelter Is required only when
tho seed is scattered on the surface and
not covered with soil, and tho weak
rootlets are sprawling on the ground
in the effort to find a place to enter,
and tho tender seed leaves arq waiting
for the roots to get into the soil to feed
them. Then ono day's hot sunshino
upon tho unprotected rootlets kills
them, or a few dry days cause them to
perish, and tho disappointed farmer
finds "the seed has failed to catch."
On the other hand, when the seed is
properly covered in tho fino rich, mel
low soil, the roots find their way to
their food at once, and being well sup
plied with moisture, dry weather and
hot sun don't hurt them.
An oat or rye stubblo may bo pre
pared for grass sowing as follows: It
is first well dressed with manure, pre
pared for it, made fine and partly de
composed. This is plowed In by lap
furrows, set at an angle of forty-fivo
degrees and not turned over flat. The
plowing should be eight Inches deep, if
tho soil is well enriched to that depth;
and If it is not it is better not to try to
put down the land to permanent grass
at present until it is adequately fertile.
As soon as tho land Is plowed and
while it is moist and pulverulent it is
thoroughly harrowed, first along ihe
furrows and then diagonally across
them, until the field has boon covered.
This method secures a thorough mix

the best depth to havo it covered. At
this depth tho roots are well developed

A BRIGHT DOG.
Knowledge Imparted and Reason Develop
ed In a Hungry Poodle.
"I was in the habit of giving bones
to my poodlo Mouston during dinner,
and ho would go into tho yard to gnaw
them. When tho bono was too largo
for him, I would get up, ano go out
with him and split it beforo his eyes with
a hatchet Ono day, Mouston, after
having gone out with his bono as usual,
camo back bringing It In his mouth,
fixed himself in front of mo and wag
ged his tall. I ordered him back, btit
no persisted In staving whero ho was.
Finally, 1 thought of what ho wanted
and arose, whito tho animal Indulged In
leaps of satisfaction. Tho trouble was
that tho bono was too largo for him.
Now, when I call to mind tho expres
sion of tho dog when ho showed me tho
bono without getting an answer from
me, I could not help thinking that ho
must at that moment have had a very
poor opinion ot my understanding."
It is evident from this Incident that
Mouston knew explicity that tho bono
would bossier to manage if it was split,
and that I alone had means of splitting
it; and ho had a clear .and precise idea
in anticipation of what ho expected fiom
mc. Finally, he manifested his desho
to mo by tho only means within his
power. How much better could a deaf
muto do than ho did?
But it Is ono thing to think by re
semblances and another thing to think
by symbols. A story was recently pub
lished by M. Dubuc of a pointer which
had learned after a few years that its
master went hunting every Sunday,
while on tho other das ho went to bus
iness, and M. Dubuc concluded that tho
animal had learned to count up to seven.
This conclusion Is not legitimate; it
may oven bo said to bo wrong. Tli
dog distinguished Sunday by somo
features that wero peculiar to it; by tho
movements about tho house, tho be
havior and Sunday dress of tho servants,
the dress of tho master, or any ono or
more of a number of things that mako
Sunday dillcrent from tho other days o!
tho week; but wo may say without con
tradiction that it did not count seven.
Wo ourselves, If wo wcro restricted to a
life absolutely uniform, would not bo
able to distinguish the seventh day with
out mncmotcchnic aids, and as a rule
we seldom recollect tho day or the date
except by the assistance of' intrinsic cir
cumstances. Popular Science Monthly.

Frederick Schiller did, Indeed, reap

Pegasus to a mule-cart, and saw him
perish iu a Slough of Despond, quite
content that his despair should vent
Itself in Virgilian lyrics rather than
Juvenalic satires. When' ho died, actat
forty-six, Goethe, for one, could not
resist the temptation to give the Ger
man Princes a bit of his mind, and his
letter to the King of Bavaria mado a
profound impression, with the usual ro
gult of commencement exercise speeches
and monument committee harangues.
Keep the mouth closed and brcatho
through tho nose, especially in cold
iveather. There aro two good reasons
for this. Air drawn through tho nasal
passages Is slightly warrocu on its way;
if breathed more directly through the
mouth it reaches the lungs too cold. It
is also said, and it looks reasonable, that
the fine hairs lining tho nostrils keep
out dust and disease germs which would
find free passago to tho throat and lungs
if one breathed through the mouth.
Children should be taught correct habits
of breathing from tho beginning. & Y

THE SECOND WALL.
Importance of a Ilecent Archaelof lea
Discovery In Jerusalem.
Prof. Hayter Lewis, who has just re
turned to England from Jerusalem,
brings the news that the find of the wall
north of the "Citadel" in tho Holy City
promises to bo a discovery of tho very
highest Importance. Tho wall is from
eight to ten feet thick; it Is built of ma
sonry exactly similar to that in tho
lower courses oi "uavius lower,
that is, of largo stones with tho wall
known and characteristic marginal
drift; and there is a deep rock scarp at
its foot Theso circumstances point
very strongly to the presumption that
thcro is horo tho long-lost Second Wall.
It Is most desirable that tho discovery
should bo followed up as soon as possi
ble, though difficulties may ariso from
tho presence of houses. How Important
it is may be gathered from tho single
fact that if tho wall runs outside tho
Church of tho Holy Sepulchre, and If it
bo accepted as the Second Wall, all tho
sites covered y that venerable church
are thereby proved, and must be ac
knowledged, to bo false. But, in any
case, the tradition that hero Con
stantino raised his basilica, and sur
rounded tho supposed site of the Holy
Tomb with columns, will remain undis
turbed. London Athenaeum.
