Better than them All.
A moderate ibare of wealth Is good
To oheer na on our way,
For it has oftrQtimst the power
To make Deoember May;
And so is beauty, so is health,
Or geotua at onr eitlli
Bat a bappy.hnpefnl, loving heart
Is better thaa them all.
A heart that gathers hope and faith
From svery springing flnwtr;
That smiles alike at winter itoim
An J gautle summer shower;
Tint b!e wet Qod for every good;
Or whether great or small;
Ob! a happy, hopoful, loving heart
Ia better than tbetn alL
'Tie well to hold the wand of power
Or wear an honored name,
And blush to hoar tbe inivhly world
Re echo with our fame;
Tin well if on onr path the smiles
Of kings and nobles fall;
Bnt to liuve a happy, limiting heart
Is better than them all.
A heart that with the mnsle notes
Of amnio is beguiled;
A heart that loves the pleasant face
Or every little child;
That riideth weakness in distress;
- And heae ih dnty'it cull;
Obi suoh a loving, human heart
Ia better than them all.
THE CHEMISTS STORY.
I nm a chemist I am the ocenpnnt ol
this refionriiblo end important position
iu the medical collego of P ,
It was about 1 o'clock on a stormy
evening that I bade good night to my
student, Tom Richards, at the door ot
my laboratory, at the south end of the
Tom wua very anxious to know what
would keep me np after 13 o clock, so I
told him I was about to commeuco an
alyzing tha stomach of a Mrs. Johnsou,
whose husband lay in P jail, just
across the road from tho college, on sus
picion that ho was the murderer.
As Tom wns passing out of tho college
yard throngh tho gate, Ins head turned,
and bidding me good night, lie brushed
against a man standing with his buck to
tao college aud hia face to the prison.
The street lamp showed mo thut the;
man whs in police uniform.
Ro-cntering my laboratory I took
down a gliws jar from the nhclf and sat
down behind my sink to examine it. An
hour had passed since the departure vf
young Richards. I hud labored hurd to
discover traces of the poison in all thi3,
but had been unsuccessful. Joo John
son, the suspected man, had been a stu
dent of mine a few years before. 1
thought him a good hearted, intelligent
fellow, only a little wild, aud really bo
g:m to hopo that ho might prove inno
cent, when, among the macerated food,
I come upon u small, infinitesimal white
grain. By curef ul manipulation and the
uso of my magnifying gloss I managed
to get this upon a piece of smoked gloss
and examined it.
I was then certain I had discovered ar
senic, but to make assurance doubly sure
I determined to apply a well known teat
for that poison.
"Yes," I exclaimed, as I saw tho fatal
blazon, "Joo Johnbou is tho murderer of
his wife I With tho evidence of that
mark to back mo no power can save
"Do yon really think so?" said a calm
voice behind mo.
I turned quickly and discovered a tall
Lank policeman, having red, watery eyes,
standing at my office door and sinring
in. His body looked as if it had been
rolled out long before his hands like a
molasses candy stick. He hod no ex
pression at all in his face, and his police
man's hat was so largo that it threatened
to settle down on his shoulders. His uni
form reassured me and I addressed him
with some impatience.
"My friend, I suppose I aia wanted to
utteml an inquest, or what is your pur
pose?" I was police surgeon as well as coroner.
"Don't bother, professor; the man ain't
dead yet. but they say he will be before
"Wluit's tho matter with himr
"Brain disorder, I mean something
I touched my forehead, and so did he
as ho said: "Ay, as I thought Fd drop in
and tell you if you were going to the
station to-morrow to take a look and
see if it is post mortem or nut. Besides
I wanted to see whore I could always
find you in case of need."
I bowed, and attributed his visit to a
feelinz of curiosity. He sat on the sink.
and while his ryes wandered about like
one who felt himself called upon to say
something, he said:
"Professor, there has been an accident
this afternoon terrible, too."
"What was iK"
"Nitro glycerine explosion tip in the
iron mills a hundred fellow mortals
"Affecting, very." Here he rubbed
his mouth with the 1ack of his hand.
"Prof ewor, what is that nitro glycerine?"
"It'a a very dangerous article," I an
swered, happy to display my knowledge.
"It lias nearly twice the destructiveness
of gunpowder, but, unlike it, docs not
explode mt the application of heat A
red hot coal dmppl into it will not ex
plode it It will freeze. It is yellow and

atoms," Bald l.Yesuttilug tbe analysis ot
Mrs. Johnson's stomach.
"No'f" I heard the policeman remark
in deliberate Yankee tones, "you don't
The next moment I lay on my back, a
gag In my mouta, yrrtWy trigntened
and sick at heart Over me stood the
policeman and the first thing that funo
tionary did waa looking me straight in
the face to take off his nose. He then
rid himself of his eyebrows, hair and
cap, and became a determined looking
fellow, with the eyes of a flend and the
nose of a Roman.
"So you think," aaid the metamor
phosed, in the tones of a gentleman,
"that nothing can save Je Johnson
from the rope? Poor follow! It dore
look like ltt But my dear professor, J oe
Johnson is fortunate enough to have in
mo a dovoted friend as well as brother.
I have undertaken to save him, and he
shall be saved. In order to accomplish
this end it will be necessary to remove
from tho face of tlie earth not only ths
stomach of his miserable wifo yonder,
bnt also, my dear professor I am sorry
to be obliged to say it, for I believe you
were my brother's teacher and friend
yourself as well." I saw that he was in
"Your death must apparently result
from accident ut least so it must seem
to the authorities. My brother is in jsil
and they will not suspect him, and they
certainly will not suspect me."
What terrible deed waa in this "brain
hatching was ho going to murder me?
Was it myself who was to hang, instead
No; yes. He placed the line pulley
like over an arm of alianging chandelier.
This was altogether too slight a support
even for one of my tender frame. It was
not to be hanging, then. Under the
weight on tho floor he placed a can of
nitro-glycerino; I recognized tho yellow
string; it was a fuse, aud it would burn
in sixty minutes. It would run across
the marble Blab; there was no hope of
igniting any substance that would warn
"Do you begin to see through it?"
asked Joe Johnson's brother.
I believe I cursed him with my eyes.
I could only breathe through my nos
trils, and great veins were swelling and
growing hot in my forehoad. Drawing
a match from his pocket he lighted and
applied it to the f nse; that little tyrant
that gavo a mau an hour to live, to kui
him at the end of it that littlo irre
sponsible teiTor that, less merciful than
Providence, told a mau the second he
was to die, if fright and horror spared
him to himself. Slowly tbe flames cropt
snake like around the twine.
"In one hour," said the prisoner's
brother, "yon will bo in hoavon or hell.
I will watch with you for half an hour,
and tho ether half you will spend alone."
Ho sat down some minutes in a chair
watching the flume. Then he arose and
took a piece of porcelain, with tho mur
derer's name thereon, from the table,
and shook his hood gloomily.
"I nin chemist enough to know it is
arsenic." ho said. "Yes, tliose bright,
metallic eyes, a betrayal of the guilty I
Science, thou wouldst kill my brother
thou shalt save him. Let mo see in
whose hands thou art the most power
Tho half hour wore slowly away. Oh,
heavens! What agony did I suffer I Not
for myself, but for my child. The fuse
burned on on. The half hour is np.
The brother of the murderer rises to go.
"Commit your soul to God's keeping,"
he said. "You hold tho evidence of my
brother's guilt nothing can save ypx.
With that he turned to take his hat
from off the table covered with the
crimson cloth beneath which hid my
priceless boy. Something attracted his
attention. Ho held out his bauds and
reached forward. I thought he had dis
covered my boy. No; ho was lifting
something in either hand the wires of
the electric battery. In another instant
iny boy had leaped from under tho table,
and was turning the crank fast and furi
ously. The murderer's brother was in the
power of my boy. He could not drop
tho wires; he was holplesx. ' How my
boy cried for help! The old college rang I
with his voico. Tho prisoner 8 brother
added his voice to my boy's in his agony.
In an instant a great length burned
away. It would just Inst five minutes
and no more.
"Father!" shouted my boy, "if no a
sistnneo comes this villain must die with

Alas! I could not answer him.
Thank God! But some one else did.

but his brother remains unpunished by

After the house adjourned Congress
man Bidden, of New York, brought the
gavel down with great dignity and call
ed tho pages to order, writes Amos J.
Cummings. A page three feet high
moved that the house go into committee
of the whole on tho state of the Union
for the consideration of a bill inoroasing
the salaries of the employes of tho honso.
Bolden put tho question with the most
profound gravity and it wos carried.
Thereupon the geniul congressman call
ed the smallest page ou tho floor to tho
chair, retired to his seat and enjoyed the
fun for nn hour or more.
Then a tow headed page moved that
the committee rise and report tho bill
favorably to the house, Tho motion
was carried, and Mr. Boldon again re
sumed the chair. The three foot pago
descended tho stops and appeared at the
bar. lie reported the proceedings of the
committee with precision and dispatch.
Thon the previous question was ordered,
the bill received its third reading and
was put upon its final pasnage. It was
carried. Tho little page gravely moved

Cleopatra, at the Fair.
A citizen of Alexandria, Egypt, named
Alexander Tugliaferro, has written to
the World's fair mauagomont inclosing
a photograph of a sarcophagus, which he
believes and claims to bo that of Cleo
patra. Ho says it was recently discov
ered in Cesar's camp, near Alexandria.
After paying the Egyptian government
its dues the writer says ho sold it to a
friend for speculation. When tho sar
cophagus was openod the contents fell in
ashes with the exception of the skeleton,
which is still preserved. Mr. Tagliaforro
says he is prompted to negotiate with
tbe exposition authorities from notices
which he has seen in newspapers of the
United States announcing that the khe
dive of Egypt has been asked by the di
rectors of the exposition for the mummy
of Rameees. He begs to offer for sale
this sarcophagus and skeleton for tho
sum of 13,000 sterling on the spot, the
inference being thut the purchaser will
be required to pay freight. In explain
ing the features of tills tomb be states
that tlie five faces on throe sides are posi
tively the images of Cleopatra. Chicago
How ta Keep Flh When Caught.
The angler should Uko care of his fish
after ho has caught them. It is discredit
able to fetch back a lot of sun and wind
dried fish, all curled np and stiff. Put a
handful of gram or ferns in the bottom
of the creel aud kill the fish as soon as
caught by hitting them a sharp blow on
the back of the head. If th weather is
hot clean the morning's catch at noon,
and every few hours dip the creel in the
stream. The best way to keep fih to
take home is as follow: Clean them
thoroughly, taking care to remove tho
gills and the blood under the backbone,
wip dry inside and ont, but do not wash
them; pprinkl them inside with black
pepper; but on no account nm salt
Park in cool, fresh grass and keep them
in the shade. If in is Band it should be
put ia a tin can, or at Lrsxt at th bottom
of the ctvL for it spoils tb flavor of
fish to have them soaking in water.

happy hunting days, as the Indians bo
liovo. During the rago of a fierce forest
firo tho tmnk of the tree was consumed ,
by tho flame. A party of Indians who
were passing through the woods stopped
to light their pipes, when tho image of
an Indian warrior, with tomahawk in
hand, was discovered underneath the
ashes of the burning tree.
The scciio which followed Is described
as being met remarkable. The Indians ,
were scared ro badly that thoy lost all
self control and a regular panic ensued,
the Indians rushing madly through tho
woods and yelling ut the top of their '
voices. As soon as word could bo com
tunuicutcd to the remaining members of
tho tribe, some 300 in numlwr, a hurried
consultation was held, at which it was
decided that tho reservation should be .
Luokily some of the more civilized
members of the tribe had influence
enough to allay the fooling of fear, and
the plan of desertion was not carried
out The place of fright was visited
later in the day, when sure enough the
petilflod body of War Eagle was ex
luuned and placed upon exhibition.
The petrification was perfect. The
war costume wns as natural as lifo, there
"being a parfoct imprint on tho stone of
both gun aud tomahawk, which were
buried alongside the body. The peculiar
formation of stone presents an imposing
appearance, and, but for tho occasional
creases caused by insects, would be clear
of any imperfections.
A largo, hollow oak was selocted, the
top sawed oft about fourteen feet from
tho ground, and the petrified body
placed upright therein, to remain for
ever. A two inch pine slab bearing tlie
following inscription marks the petrified
remains of this tribe's greatest warrior i
