1 IN THE SHADOW.
,We walk within the shadow, and wo feel
Its thickening fold
That wraps us round and holds us close, a
cloak against the cold;
The day Is growing somber, and the Joyous
light has fled,
And beneath our feet tho road la rough, and
clouds are overhead.
We sit within the shadow, and In that si
To us In Boftcncd echoes remembered
Sear eyes that closed In slumber once, dear
hands that straightened lie.
Awaken tender yearnings as tho day wanes
,W rest within the shadow, though the
hurrylnc people go
On errands swift for gold and sain, be
yond us, to and fro;
,We have no care for transient things; we
wish no more to strive
As once we did; wo rest, we dream, we feel
but halt alive.
Our resting and our waiting, and our plod
ding on the way,
With the sunshine of the past casting
darkness on to-day,
.With no caring for tho future, while the
heartacho holds us fast.
With no thought for any pleasure ahl 'tis
Well these cannot last.
For the shadow always lifts, and the sun
light glows again;
There are sudden gleams of brightness,
sweot clear shining after rain;
And we gird ourselves for action, strength
ened we arise and go
Prom the sanctuary outward, where the
feet tramp to and fro.
Life must have Its sometime sorrow, but
tho years that drift along
Touch the minor chords but seldom; there
aro spaces blltho with song.
Sometimes wo must faco the shadow,
where the wind blows keen and cold.
But tho shadow fades at dawning, and the
east Is flocked with gold.

"Not If I know it, madam!" shouted
Phineas, jumping from his chair and
bringing -his fist down on the table.
"Do you think I anr going to havcHhyd

my garden into a howling wilderness?
'The house may remain tcnantless for
ever, but Ilerr Schmidt and his mon
ctroslties shall not enter there."
"Ilerr Schmidt, my dear, is merely a

stairs some fine morning to find a ring

roos nnd crocodiles play leapfrog over
the flower beds. No, madam! No
naturalists for Phineas Peel!"
I Pretty Mm. Peel never allowed her
temper to get the better of her.( She
laughed softly at her husband's fears,
nnd did not ultcr her determination in
"Has it slipped your memory, Phin
eas," she asked, "that llhyd cottage Is

to let' it to n naturalist even though
he be n foreigner I am perfectly jus

I This was true enough, and Phineas
"Ilerr Schmidt's collection of 'mon

Mrs. Peel, "probably contains nothing
more dangerous than n deaths head

Intention to disappoint him."
I "But I"
i "You will treat him with the respect
flue from one gentleman to another,
Phineas," broke In Mrs. Peel. "And
now, dear, we'll dismiss the subject."
Phineas Peel was though at times
he doubted it a lucky fellow. Ho had
carried off a youngnnd handsome wom
an from a host of suitors.
Why Mary Marsden had chosen to
bestow her hand and fortune on such
a pluln, everyday sort of fellow as the
diminutive Phineas Peel was always a
mystery to her acquaintances. The
-wedding was an accomplished fact be
fore her relatives had recovered from
the shock caused by the announcement
of her engagement.
Mary appeared to be happy enough,
too. Phineas, taken as a whole, was
not a bad sort of fellow. He was jeal
ous, that wn. true, but his wife came
to regard that as an extra proof of

ship. But 1as! Herr Schmidt was
young and handsome far too hand

"Very well, Mary," said Phineaa, tak
ing his hat from the peg and making
Jorthe door; "you havo overruled me
us usual, and must be prepared for the
consequences. In less tlinn a week we
shall have the house and garden over
run with every conceivable variety of
reptile from the beastly lizard to the
And Phineas stalked indignantly
forth with the merry laughter of his
wife ringing in his ears.
A month or more had passed, and so
far the fears of Phineas had proved to
be groundless. Herr Schmidt's "mon
strosities" had been kept well within
bounds, and as yet Mr. Peel had not
seen so much as a strange caterpillar
In his garden, which never looked bet
ter. However, ho was not happy, ne had
taken an aversion to tho new tenant
from the first, and would never be sat
isfied until he had got rid of him.
"Confound the follow," muttered
Phineas one evening, as he sat on an
upturned bucket behind the peasticks,
"he's prowling about on the other side
of the hedge again. Hope he won't catch
sight of me, for I'm about tired of his
oily tongue and eternal smile. IIullo!
what the deuce la the meaning of this?"
Down the garden path tripped Mrs.
Peel. The naturalist was evidently ex
pecting her, and greeted her with a
smile that almost brought tears into
the eyes of the furious Phineas.
"Goot efening," he said. "Xou vos
joost a leetle late!"
It was evident that this was not tho
first chat indulged in over the boundary
hedge. Though Phineas strained bis
cars, he could not catch the drift of the
conversation. Like a Hash he remem
bered that M-iry had often of late taken
a stroll in the garden at dusk. Was
this the explanation?
Phineas had been glaring at the
couple from behind the peasticks for
ten minutes or so, when he saw his wife
take a rosebud from his favorite tree
and hand it over the hedge with a
charming smile to the delighted Herr
Schmidt. Then, with a pleasant "Good
night," Mrs. Peel tripped lightly into
"You villain!" hissed Phineas, sav
nRely. jumping from his seat and shak
ing his fist after the retreating figure
in the next garden, "I'll pay you out
The rage of Mr. Peel was something
to be remembered. Nothing but blood,
he vowed, would obliterate his wrongs.
Hut he would be cautious, ne would
smile and smile and murder while he
smiled. Seizing a peastick he tragic
ally buried It in the heart of an unof
fending cabbage, and played havoc
with a stately row of sunflowers.
Half an hour later Mary saw him
take down a huge old-fashioned duck
gun from the hook in the hall.
"There's a German vulture in the
neighborhood," he volunteered, im
pressively, "and I'm going to bag him
at the flrst opportunity."
However, as nothing short of an
earthquake would have induced the old
gun to go oil in any circumstances
and Phineas had made assurances
doubly sure by dropping in the shot
flrst nnd powder afterward the "vul
ture" in question was not likely to be
seriously damaged, and Mary contented
herself with expressing a hope that her
husband would not hurt himself.
On the following evening Phineas
took up his old position in the garden,
with murder In his heart. Herr
Schmidt, however, did not put in an np
pcarnce. After waiting some time,
Phineas reentered the house nnd reared
his duck gun up in tho hall in a con
lie had almost decided to run up to
town and consult his brother John,
the detective, with a view to having
the movements of Herr Schmidt
watched, when he was startled by tho
click of the letter box.
A scrap of paper lay on tho mat.
Picking it up, Phineas glanced at it,
turned deadly pale, then hurried Into
the garden. Scribbled in lead pencil on
dirty paper was the following:
"Peel has discovered everything. We
linve not a moment to lose nnd must
clear out to-night. The front door Is
unsafe. Vfil meet you at the back
There was no signature.
"Good gracious!" ejaculated Phineas,
after reading the note for a third time.
"I'd no idea matters hod gone so far.
Oh, yes, Mr. Schmidt," he added grimly
"I'll meet you nt 10:30 sharp."
It was about 10:45, and raining heav
ily. Phineas Peel, seated on a wall
overlooking the back of lthyd cottage,
with his duck gun laid across his knees,
was beginning to feel uncomfortable.
"The note said 10:30," he muttered.
"It must be after that time now. What's
Phineas had caught the sound of
heavy feet moving cautiously over the
gravel. He grasped his gun and peered
into the' gloom, but could distinguish
Suddenly he heard voices, evidently
nt the front of the house. He was about
to quit his position, under the impres
sion that Herr Schmidt was leaving by
the front door, after all, when one of
the back windows was cautiously raised
and the lithe form of the naturalist
dropped lightly to the ground.
Creeping along the side of the wall
on which Phineaslay, he presented an
excellent mark. Mr. Peel, however.
could not bring himself to shoot a man
down in cold blood. He would give
him a chance.
"Stop, you scoundrel!" he shouted.
The effect of the challenge was
scarcely what Phineas had anticipated.
Herr Schmidt darted forward and
seized the barrel of the gun.
He was much the stronger of the two,
end Phineas was pulled from the wail
in a twinkling. Lying on the broad of
his back on the gravel in a half-dazed
condition, be saw the tall form of
Schmidt standing over him with tho
"Keep your tongue still, you fool, '
he hissed, "or I'll brain you. Now,
quick, help me over the wall."
Phineas hesitated, but the threaten-
"STOP. YOU SCOUNDREL."
lng attitude of the other induced him
to rise. However, he had no intention
of giving in.
Obeying his instructions, he caught
hold of Schmidt's foot to give him "a
leg up." Before the naturalist could
grip the top of the wall, however, Phin
eas saw his opportunity.
Bracing himself for theieffort, ho
exerted all his strength and pulled
Schmidt bodily from the wall. He fell
flat on his face, and before he could re
cover himself Phineas jumped on his
Lack and seized him around the throat,
emitting a yell that would have done
credit to a Sioux Indian.
Tho next moment Phineas was
dragged off from behind and found him
self in the clutches of a burly member
of the local police force.
Four or five others seized Schmidt,
who struggled in vain to free himself.
"What am I arrested for?" gasped
Phineas. "There's your man!"
Phineas would no doubt have been
led off with the other prisoner but for
the timely arrival on the scene of the
last person in the world he had ex
pected to see his brother John!
"Here, what on earth Is the meaning
of nil this?" he demanded, when, ns
the result of John Peel's interference,
he found himself free.
John stayed behind a minute or two
to explain that Herr Schmidt, the "nat
uralist," nnd Edward Harper the no
torious forger who had defied New
Scotland Yard for the past six weeks
uerc one and the same.
"It was a smart dedgo of norper's,"
said John Peel, "and he might have got
clear away but for that elever wife of
jours, Phineas. Mary suspected the
man from the flrst, and supplied me
from time to time with valuable infor
mation. It is to her entirely that the
credit of the capture is due. Tell her
I'll call round and thank her myself to
morrow. By-the-by, the gang of which
he was the head got wind of our inten
tions, nnd a man was dispatched with
a warning. Harper doesn't appear to
have received it."
Then Phineas began to understand
things a little more clearly.
"I suppose this will be It," ho re
marked, producing the note nnd hand
ing it to his brother. "You see, tho
messenger left it In the wrong door,
and I er I thought I might as well
see tbo fun."
For some little time after Phineas
was of the opinion that he had mode n
fool of himself. Lately, however, he
has taken a different view of the mat
ter, and is never tired of relating how

TORRENCE DEAD. I TROUBLE AHEAD. ' I
Tbo Noted Soldier and Business Man Passes
Away In Chicago.
Chicago, Nov. 3. Gen. Joseph T.
Torrence died at his home in this city
of Bright's disease, with which hehas
been ailing some time. His estate is
worth several million dollars. Joseph
T. Torrence was born in Pennsylvania
G3 years ago. His career is an example
of what a self-made man can become.
Apprenticed to a blacksmith at an early
age, he was an assistant foreman when
17. The civil war breaking out he en
listed in an Ohio volunteer regiment,
was wounded at Perryville and led the
party that captured Morgan, the guer
rilla. His title he owed to a subse
quent period, when he was appointed
by Senator (then governor) Cullom, to
command an Illinois militia regiment,
and distinguished himself in quelling
riots in 1877. After the war Gen.
Torrence took charge of the Chi
cago iron works and later became con
nected with the Jollct Iron & Steel
Co. It would be useless to
enumerate tho enterprises In which he
was interested, but his organization of
the Chicago Elevated Terminal rail
way in 1891 cannot be overlooked. He
conceived the basic idea of the elevated
roads now in operation in this city.
Among his gentler attributes may bo
mentionod a love for children.
