"We will laugh over it together to

once more to her very temples. "I

grace and sireiigm as li lie were a
king who had ollered her his king

royal dower. Then the last echo of
his footsteps died away, and with a
hanpv. tremulous sigh, she turned to
enter the house; but by her side a dark
figure started up. lhe girl uttered a
faint scream. Then the moon emerg
ed from her hiding place and disclosed
the man's face. Strangely white it
looked, thought IViy, as she said:
"Why, Jack! Mow you startled me:

apart from the others on the new
hall in the mine. It was a strange
sound, which suddenly made each
man throw down his tool and start
with white faces to their feet the
sound of a cheery whistle echoing

' The men rialised with a4 flush of
shame, "while their hands sank iiuietly
to tlieir sides, and Jack Moward- knew
his defense had proved good. "-So the
long, weary hours dragged themselves

not whether it were day or night, or.

long they had been entomlied, when
hoi e rose, once more in their breasts,
as, faint and distinct, came a' human
voice.- ith ope accord they an
swered it, nnd grasping their tools
with new earnestness, fell to work to
meet those digging theif slow way to

come back for him if there's time."..
So tliev decided, and one by one
crawled through the. urrrow space.
Jack Howard came last. ' He cast one
look upon the silent, denth-like place,
the silent death-like form, while Jia-

the prostrate form, and whispering in
his car: "Tell her I kept sacred the

So Jack went back to his doom.
It was a glimpse of Jvlen"to the
men who thought themselves shut
out from it forever as once more
they saw the green fields and the sun
light, while weeping women and
children clung, sobbing, to their knees.

as Ray nu.sed him to health and

breath she told him why Jack Howard
had done this thing. How great,
how true an act of heroism was his,
e'en though no marble shaft nor sculp

a good-looking 3'oung lady living in
JJrooklyu: . who had Is-en spendi-nr

She had only her stockings on, ; and
her clothes lay neat together on the

Kvn her bracelets and necklace had
been taken on and laid carefulfy on

Was also found the comb with which
she had kept her rich, dark hair in
place. The door leading to Dr. Ha
brouck's parlor was wide open, anil
on a center-table was a lamp burning
brightly, just as if the room had lieen
suddenly deserted of its; compain.
Dr. Jlasbrouck and his wife were ab
sent on a two da3-'s visit to Kingston.
and had left Miss Heuser alone in their
part of the house. That evening she
nan lieen out to the same picnic from
which Mr. and Mrs. Connor returned,
nut had come home early 111 tlie com-
pan3 of Mr. m. Jl. 'Jownsend and
his children, with whom she had left
tlie house in the afternoon. When
found in the hallway which divides
the double two-story frame house, she
had a split spongeover her nose.lsiund
on by a long strip torn oil' from a tow
el taken from her room, and the other
tart of the towel was tied around her
lead in such a manner as to blindfold
After the discovery tlie neighbors
were soon aroused. Dr. Gedney, who
lives aliout a mile up the river road,
was sent for, and by 11 o'clock the
3-ounglady had regained her senses.
She at once related what had happen
ed to her, telling how two masked
men had suddenly entered the parlor,
where she was sitting at the piano;
how she was almost instantly para
lyzed at the sight of them, and that
from that time she rememliered little
until brought to in Mrs. Connor's par
lor. With this part of the story the pub
lic has already lieen acquainted, but
how the ouiig lady came to lie put in
such a plight continues to lie a mys-
ter3. The strangest thing of all is the
fact that a majority at least of the cit
izens of Milton profess to Iwlieve that

I called 011 Miss Heuser to-day (in
company with Dr. Gednej, who is a
practitioner of longstanding here) and
heard the story from her own lips. As
Miss Heuser entered the parlor the
Doctor greeted her cheerily, and said
she IMiked much better than when he
last saw her. She was pale, but the
Doctor said that was natural with
her. Miss Heuser is a ver3 prett3T
3'oung lad3 with a great abundance
of black hair, large dark ees, smooth
light skin, a wide forehead, neatly ta
pering chin and a prettily curved
mouth. She was demure, but lierfect-
lycalm aud self-possessed. In an
swer to ni3 questions, which were as
shrewdly put as I could make them
under the circumstances, she said:
"When 1 came home with Mr.
Townsend and the children it was
was 11:30 o'clock. The house was
mpt3 and all locked up, I had a key
for the back door aud came in that
way. I went up to my bedroom on
the second floor, threw my hat on the
bed, went down stairs aud turned up
the lamp in the parlor. Mr. Town-
send's folks were letting off fire-works
in their front 3'ard, right opposite. I
went out on the stoop and sat there a
while looking at them and then went
in, shutting the hall door, w hich has
spring lock. I came into the parlor
here and sat down at tlie piano, I
had struck only a few notes when I
thought I heard a noise like the creak
ing of some one's lioots. I got up and
started towards the dixir, when I was
met by two men whose faces were
masked. I turned and ran toward the
window there. I ran around this side
of the table, and the men ran around
that side. One of them said, "Stop
her, Jack, or she'll scream." That's
all I heard either of them sa3. I was
dreadfully frightened. I think I tried
to scream, but was so frightened that
I (uldn't. I fainted right awa3', and
the next thing I knew was when I
was I was lying on the ofa in Mrs.
Connor's imrinrx: Uuo f the wen

I saw first, but I think 1 saw them
Uitli together. I am sure that they
were men, and not women in men's
lothing. One or mem had a sou
hand, but it was not the hand of a
woman. . The men looked strong and
muscular. I can t account lor what
tlH'3 did. I have no enemies here
that I know of. After I had laid my
baton tlie tied in my room aud started
lown stairs, 1 thought I heard a noise

but took no more notice of it. I'm

to mess by themselves. e had
student whose stomach never failed. to
revolt when, in Uie process of dissec
tion, I tones were laid bare tohis vision.
From this fact he could never so much
as look upon a piece 01 steak with a
hone- in it without a deep-reaching
vomit. He consequently purchased
boneless steaks. He was an excellent
cKik, and that qualification. was not
long in making itself known. It was
not uncommon, therefore, for the stu
dents to steal them awa3 just aliout
tha time they" had been, well cook,ed, if
allowed the least op'iortuiiity. He
was a studious 003, and would often
lie so alisorbed in his liooksas toauiost
forget he to cooking a meal. He
kiifcw so well, however, to regulate
his tire that he rarely ever so far for
got himself as to let his meat cook too
much to be savory. Rut helfinalbygot
tired of the inroads so often madeujsin
him, and resolved to make his "first
cure." The cadaver of a" very fleshy
negro, who had been killed by acci
dent, was brought in one night for
dissection. At the closeof the evening
the poor student waited until all his
companions had gone out, and then
cut from, the negro's leg a steak re-
sembling, to all intents and purposes,
a beef-steak, tiereft, as It was, of the
outer skin. This he salted and sea
soned, and cooked the following morn
ing. As usual, one of his principal
tormentors was around waiting hisoj)
portunity to seize the steak. It was
unusually well cooked. To permit its
attraction the student went into an
adjoining room, and, through the
crack of the door, saw bis friend take
it awa3 and subsequently tat it with
greed iuess. ,
"That was a fine steak 3ou ate this
morning," suggested th jrnor student'
to the involuntary cannibal, in the
presence of a crowd of students, who
understood the joke.
"Very tine, indeed," paid he, seem
ing to enjoy the poor student's feigned
discomfiture; "the liest I ever ate. It
was verv'tice, old Ik3; very juicy-; so
highly flavored; the very best you
"And so it was," suaneted the poor
student. "The only wonder is that it

bins his hands with apparent delight;

turn. Ry the way, who's your hutch-j

'He is here before you."
"What do 3'ou mean?"
"I mean that I cut that steak off
that 'nigger's' leg last night, and
cooked it for your benefit."
At . this the involuntary cannibal
grew ghastly pale; he gave a fearful,
a desjierate heave, and, tbrv hfc

fhroniiwr. is now adrotfnfng woman,
whose face is only seen floating on the

sees, where she rslli hustles of all
that Was high-Uii-utviid all ;lht ; was
celebrated in .Paris. -., Her husliand's
sisters, s;iyw tlie writer, did the hon
ors with lier th! Countess de Ruculot
and tlie 1 Princes de tiinetti. The
Princess of Wales-was there in a deli
cious toilet of pink faille and natural
roses; so was the Priui-e Pouiatowrki,
who has since died without, the hap
piness of seeing the diva fipjiear in one
.of his oeras; .mi was the fantastical
lVimfess Melternich, with ber unique
iearls and her Simiau but fascinating
wa3s, coquetting with the tall, wells
limbed, dull, Russian Grand Duke
Vladimir; so waw-Aulier, now at resf ;
so was the Count d'Osmoitd, who now
gives tlio moait disre-Ritirb.1 balls in
Paris; so was AliKini. 1 11 short, it
was an exceptional festival, which at
tracted all tlie glittering people of the
last days of thfe Umpire.
- Now all . is changed. F.ven her
faithful satellite, "Loutou1 has left
her; Louise I411110, a merchant's
daughter, who, becoming - infatuated
with Patti, renounced home and the
hope of marriage, and devoted herself,
liody and soul, to her service, su'icrm
tending everything her house, her
dressing-room,.' het travels and her
toilet. Pattj s most devoted worship
per or the other sex was txittrHU, a
Neapolitan, tbe" most considerable
piusie publisher of Italy next to Ri-
coidi, of Milan, whose constant strug
gle with his eye-glass is legendary in
rari, the contest ending invariably m
his dropping the glass out of reach and
making the wildest salutations at ran
dom, some of which .involved him in
queer misadventures. Cottrau was a
fanatical liehever 111 the. diva, "into
tho-fplendor of whose glory he dashed
himself headlong," says the wonder
ful author of ibis wonderful tale.
even as a sea bird goes against the
lantern of a light-house."
Having advertised his hoiieless pas
sion to tlie amusement or all Paris,
the iioor man retired to Naples dis
gusted ami disenchanted. Another of
her adorers was the old Marquis de
Chavanat, a nobleman old enough to
lie her grandfather and a magnificent
ersonare, with a wonderful of white
hair, l ie was as madly in love a if
he had been a collegian. Not lieing
rich, and finding it expensive work to
travel about aud pay for seats at the
opera all over Kurope, the Marquis in
vented a I'atti chamiMigne, which he
advertised in all parts of the Conti
nent, billing in advance with the cit
ies where she was to sing. The chain-
lagne sold, of course, and so the old
Marquis lived everywhere in style,
md kept always near the object of his
great and innocent passion.
Tbe Marquis was the first man to
unearth Nicolini. It was at St. Pe
tersburg in IsTi;. The Marquis, who
was cstabliibed at the same hotel with
lis goddess, was out that evening,
when a servant, passing by the apart
ments of Mine. Patti, heard some one
moving about. 1 he servant thinking
there was a theft therein, gave the
ilarm and raised tbe household. The
Id Marquis de 'havanatcoming iu at
tbe moment, was the first jstsoii on
the scene, rushed in and dragged out
from tlie closet, where he had taken
cfuge, the trembling tenor, whom he
lid then and there trounce as soundly
is ever ai. dct.aux could haveucsired.
This was the first whipping Nicolini
rece.ived; the last says the chronicler,
was from Strakosch, of whom we are
told that he is "a Memiese, which is
as'iniioh as to say amiable to the this
of his fingers, and the most complete
master 01 tue hat 111 all rtiroiie next to
iiqiommeraye," Lapoinmeraye being
the celebrated physician who itfiisoni d
so many ot his lasinonabie patients;
t',atti, it seem.-', wished to bU3 the vil-
1 01 irento; rwroiini consented, but
wanted the title deeds to he made out
in Jiis iianioi. She was aliout to yield,
when Strak'osch interfered. From
word they come to blows, and so the
great impressariro caned the great
tenor condign ly, tbe great tenor howl
ing the while pileousiy. "Udeiid
yourself," cried Strakosch. ,"l don t
ike to kill a man who doesn't defend
himself!" l'uiti, after the manner of
the Sabine women, and of Mr. Pick
wick at Uatrnswill, threw herself be
tween the pair, therelry getting a hear
ty whack 011 the arm, which raised a

For the comfort of these gentlemen

its friends not the least concern. The
