I your Life worth a Wollnr?
v Perhaps that seems a nigh price
for it, considering how poor your
blood is, and how your whole sys
tem is prostrated, debilitated, and
enfeebled. People have been heard
to say, under sueh -circumstances,
that they would rot give the toss ,
of a copper for the choice between
life and death. Hut when it comes
to actually drawing near the grave,
a man naturally draws back, and
says he docs not want to die. Life
is very precious, and even to a broken-down
man it is worth saving,
One dollar will buy a bottle of
Browris Iron Bitters. That one
dollar may start you on the road
from misery to recovery. A man
must take a very mean view of
himself who is not willing to invest
that much in making one serious
effort to rascue himself from deadly
debility, and to step into the en
joyment of solid health. Brown s
Iron Bitters vitalizes the blood,
tones the nerve6, and rebuilds the
system. Its work is well known.

BERTHA DALTOH'S IIWH;
THE HISTORY OF AN OPAL RING.
Breakfast was late at Ivy Cottage on
the morning after the ball. Bertha
awoke feeling as if what had occurred
must have been a dream. She seemed
scarcely to realize it all. scarcely fully
to comprehend the changes that might
come. , Her lover's fond words rang in
her ears, tilling her heart with a bliss
hitherto unknown that, at any rate,
was no dream, she told herself and at
the same time what be had said re
specting her sister's marriage, vague as
it was, made her 6hiver with alarm.
She knew not what to dread, on which
side the blow would fall, but the con
viction took firm possession of her that
something would yet intervene to break
off the match.
To her great ioy his letter arrived in
the afternoon, dispersing for the time
all doubts and fears. It was so sweet
to her to read over and over again the
assurance of his undying love, to dwell
upon his words of endearment. To be
his. to walk through life hand in hand
with him, was all she asked of fate.
Even if he'Should be obliged to leave
the country, as he had said might be
the case, was there not space enough in
the world where they might be happy
with each other?
With these thoughts floating through
her mind she fell asleep at night, bt.
Lawrence's letter clasped in her hand.
Lena brooded over her miseries, real
and imagined, after she went to bed,
till she could bear it no longer. She
rose, and, throwing a dressing-gown
round her, she lighted her lamp, and
stole into Bertha's room. Standing by
the bedside, and shading the lamp with
her hand, she gazed upon the sleeper.
A soft flush lingered on liertha's cheeks,
a happy smile on her lips.
She softly drew the letter from be
tween Bertha's loosened fingers, and,
setting down the lamp, unfolded the
note and read it through read how ut
terly she had deceived lierself; how en
tirely the love she had been sinfully in
dulging in was vain; read also her own
condemnation in the part she was act
ing. Tortured, self-accused, torn by
conflicting passions, she stood, not
knowing whether to go or stay, when
Bertha, roused by the light or by Lena's
movement, opened her eyes, and start
ed up in bed.
"Lena," she cried, ''what is the mat
ter? Are you ill?"
"Ill ' relumed Lena, with a bitter
laugh. "No! What should make me
ill when the crowning day of my life
will be the day art er to-morrow t But I
could not sleep; I came here to ask you
"Whatdovou want to ask mer" in
quired Bertha, far from being reassured
by her sister's manner. Ana then she
perceived that Lena had taken St. Law
rence's letter. She stretched out her
hand for it.
You shouldn't have taken that," she
said; "it was not intended for you to
"Wh? not!rt asked Lena, in the same
bitter tone. "It is so exceedingly com
plimentary to me and one likes com
pliments, you know. So it is you St.
Lawrence loved all along and you
knew it!" she went on, her mocking
tone changing to one of anger.
"No; I did not know it till last night,"
Bertha replied with a very bright
blush. "Atone time I hoped it and
then I made up my mind 1 had been
mistaken when ne no longer came to the
"And it was for Douglas's sake he
stayed away and Douglas loved you
tool" Lena exclaimed. . "Oh, Bertha,
why could you not have loved him?
Why did you not marry him?" she cried
wildly. ft Why need you have won St.
Lawrence too? lie might have loved
"Lena, are you mad?" exclaimed
Bertha, looking with frightened eyes at
her sister's flushed and agitated counte
nance. , "What have you to do with St.
Lawrence's love? You are to be a bride
before many hours."
Lena pressed her hands to her tem
ples, and fell on her knees by the bed
Bide. "A bride yes! I have made my
choice, haven't I? And I would do the
same again. And yet I loved another
all the while. Bertha, you cannot mar
ry St. Lawrence," she went on in a wild
voice; "you shall not marry him. He
is a disgraced man, going under an as
sumed name. Our mother will never
give her consent." .
"You are speaking of you know not
what, Lena" Bertha rejoined, with dif
ficulty retaining her calmness. "No
disgrace can ever attach to Eustace St.
Lawrence. I know the name he goes
by is not his own. but, if the mystery
that hang9 over him should never be
cleared up, I shall not doubt him. If
he called upon me to be his wife and to
follow him to-morrow, I would go with
him with the most perfect trust to the
very ends of the earth. But we are not
thinking of marrying yet," she added,
checking herself in the gush of feeling
that had prompted her words. "There
is no need to trouble mamma at pres
ent." "I tell you you shall not marry him!'
cried Lena, still more fiercely, clutching
the bedclothes in her hands, as sha
knelt. "Why should you be hannv and
"Lena, dear Lena, you don't know
what you say," Bertha returned, more
and more frightened by her sister'i
manner. "Why should you be misera
ble? You do not love Mr. Fancourt;
tell him so even now at the eleventh
hour give up this hateful marriage.
What does it matter what the world
may say? We will go abroad for a while
we will do anything you wish. Oh,
Lena, listen to me. for the sake of your
life's happiness for your soul's peace!"
Bertha took her sister's cold hands in
hers as she spoke, but Lena snatched
"What will jou do for me?" she de
manded. " ill you give up St. Law
rence?" "No," Bertha replied firmlv; "nor
ought you to ask it of me. I have given
him my faith; if I broke it. I should be
false to him and to myself."
"Then neither will I give up," Lena
replied, her countenance hardening in
to a set expression of pride and de
fiance as she rose from her knes. "Do
not think I shall envy you. If St. Law
rence had loved me, I dare say I should
have tired of him a poor landscape
painter without a name. I am more
fitted for the life I have chosen. It is
better as it is. I think I have been mad

up her hand to her brow on wuich there
was an expression of pain. "My head
is dizzy,' she suirt. "I dare not be
alone. Let uie lie dowu by you."
Bertha, much alarmed, made room
for her sister beside her. Though she
had no doubt that much of . what Lena
had said had been merely the fevered
imaginings of delirium, j et it betoken
ed a mind ill at ease- and, notwith
standing the dreaded day that was to
seal her sister's fate was now so near,
she yet expected twine revelation to
take place, some event to occur, that
would put a bar to the marriage, but as
to what it would he Rhe could form no
conjecture. "Would it not be well if
Lena should prove, to be really suffer
ing so tli;t the day would have to be
postpod?'' she asked herself. Was
she w rong in utmost wishing it might
be so? " The night before she bad gone
to sleep absorbed in dreams of her own
happiness; now the fears and troubles
arising from what she had observed of
her sister's state of mind, and from the
vague warnings she had received, re
turned, in full force.
As soon as it was daylight she rose
and dressed herself, leaving her sister
still sleeping. She heard Sarah setting
out the breakfast things in the room
below, and then she heard her mother
moving about. Soon after Lena opened
her eyes, liaising herself on her elbow,
she looked bewildered at first on finding
herself in Burtha's bed, and then she
"Are you there, Bertha?" she said.
"I think I must have had a bad dream
last night. I was talking nonsense,
"How do you feel now?" Bertha
asked, coming to her side. "Are you
better? Will you have your breakfast
Lena caught at the idea.
"Yes. bring it to me, that's a dear.
But I am quite well now. You must
not think anything of what I have said,
and do not say anything to mamma,
except that my head aches rather and I
want to rest a while longer."
"You are certainly not looking vour
best," said Bertha. "I will go and" get
you a cup of coffeo. Stav quietly here;
no one shall disturb you'
Lena went down-stairs before one
o'clock, the hour at which Fancourt
usually paid his first visit; but at one
o'clock Fancourt did not make his ap
pearance. About half-past two Sarah came into
the small parlor where they were sit
ting in the midst of bridal favors, to say
that a young woman was in the kitchen
wanting to see "Miss Lena."
"She seems quite upset 'm," said Sa
rah: but she won't tell her business to
none but Miss Dalton, she says."
"Wants to see me? How very odd!"
said Lena, rising and going out.
She soon came back, looking much
"It's the strangest thing, mamma,"
she said. '"leant quite make it out.
Her mi:-tress is dying, the young woman
says, and has sent her for me. She says
she has something to communicate to
me or she cannot the in pnace. She told
the ?irl to say it was the lady who had
the opal ring."
"Dear, dear, how very inconvenient!
I am sure I cannot manage to go with
yon." s:iid .Mrs, Dallon. fretfully.
"I don't know that I shall go"," said
Lena. "It is not very pleasant business
to see a dying woman. '
'Tray goyou do not know what may
depend" upon it," Bertha cried. "Mam
ma, cannot we go together? I know all
aboitt how to get there you know I
gave lessons once to a pupil at Dorking.
Lena, let us go together."
"I don't see what need there is for
vou to excite yourself so much," said
Lena, still hesitating; but the wish to
gain possession of the real ring deter
mined her the imitation had not been
"W ell, if Bertha goes with you. I do
not see that there can be any objection;
ana it would De a pity not to get tne
ring. I hope you'll take better care of
it than Bertha did." said Mrs. Dalton.
"But what shall I sav to poor Mr. Fan-
court when he comes?"
"Poor Mr. Fancourt must console
himself," Lena replied, with a curl of
tne lip. "res, i win go. Lome, Ber-
"Directlv. I will be ready as soon as
you," Bertha answered.
Bv the time the cab arrived they were
ready, and, taking the vouug woman in
with them, they were driven rapidly off
in order to catch the next train.

"We are as sure as we can be of any

Thompson answered.' 1 ;
Lord Alphington gave a great sign,
as though ne were casting a load from
his heart; but he was still full of per
plexity, so much, was involved. He
could not all at once realize the change
this discovery would make.
"Tell me all the circumstances from
beginning to end," he said at last, after
a silence of several minutes, which Mr.
Thompson had not ventured to break.
Tell me all you know." .
"It seems that St. Lawrence I may
as well, for the present, distinguish him

to lay the proofs of his birthright before

Mr. Thompson narrated. "Immedi
ately on coming to town St. Lawrence
made the police acquainted with the
theft, and a clever detective was em
ployed to trace the matter out. When
you also went to the police about the
loss of the opal ring, it was at once
perceived that the lesser theft might
assist in the discovery of the greater,
and the two cases were intrusted to the
same hand. The surmise has proved
correct bv means of the ring the whole
affair has been cleared up."
"But when Sedley brought the proofs
to you, when he openly assumed the
name or t ancourt, ai. juawrence must
have known who was the thief?" inter
posed Lord Alphington.
'Yes. my lord, of course he knew."
Mr. Thompson replied: "but it was one
thing for him to know it, and another
to prove that he had been robbed that
he had ever been in possession of the
papers. The two young men are cous
ins, of the same age within a few weeks,
and they were christened in the same
name Eustace Sedley. I don't know
if you are aware of it, but, when Mr.
Fancourt went to America and married
there, he took the name of his wife
Sedley from what motive will proba

Alphington, sighing. "Continue, prav.",

son of Mr. Fancourt'a wife s brother."

asked Lord Alnhincrton. still half afraid
of giving credence to what he heard.
"Rlggs, the detective, who was em-
S loved in the two eases, as I have said,
isguised himself as a servant, and
bribed Sealey s man to let him take his
Slace," Mr. Thompson resumed, "the
ormer valet recommending him to your
house-steward here. You see, my lord,
he was certain of his man, to begin
with, and he had a shrewd suspicion
that the fellow Mifls Bertha Dalton de
scribed as having been in possession of
the ring must have had to do with the
greater robbery. He had, therefore, to
End out his whereabouts. This he did
through Mrs. Sedley's Bervant."
"Mrs. Sedley f or whom are you
speaking?" said Lord Alphington.
"Of this man Sedley's wife, my lord,"
Mr. Thompson replied. "It seems that
when quite young he married a hand
some i rench cananlan girl of the name
of Julie Lemont, sister to the Pierre
Lemony who, most fortunately for the
elucidation of the case, first stole and
then lost the ring."
"Married!" Lord Alphington ex
claimed, in a tine of horror. "And that
lovely girl, Miss Dalton, might have
"Mr. St. Lawrence and Rlggs both
agreed that if the arrest could not be
made in time, they would both come
forward and explain enough to make
the postponement of the marriage im
perative. Mr. St. Lawrence was not
aware of his cousin's marriage or he
would not have allowed Miss Dalton's
engagement to stand for an hour." Mr.
Thompson explained; "but as I was
saying, my lord, -Rigga discovered
through Mrs. Sedley's servant where
this Pierre Lemont was to be found.
The police immediately telegraphed to
France from Scotland Yard. Lemont
was arrested, and has confessed his
share in the transaction. As soon as
the forms of extradition are complied
with, he will be brought to England.
Now comes the worst part of my story.
Mrs. Sedley is a reckless, unprincipled
woman, no doubt, but she must have
led an awful life with that scoundrel.
He fell in love with Miss Dalton on first
seeing her. it seems, and determined to
get his wife out of the way in order to
marry her. He first tried to persuade
her to leave the country; this failing,
he attempted to poison her."
"To poison her!" Lord , Alphington
f'Tliere is no mistake about it, my
lord," Mr. Thompson went on. "The
consummation of the crime was pre
vented by Riggs. Sedley tried the ef
fects of the poison on a dog he had.
Riggs began to suspect that something
was wrong, and brought the animal to
a veterinary surgeon. It was shot, and
on au examination being made, the
poison used was ascertained. Riggs
found the packet of poison in Sedley a
dressing-case, and the name of the
chemist who sold it. A bottle of medi
cine, and also some brandy Sedley gave
his wife, have been analyzed, and the
same poison has been detected. There
is not a loophole of escape. Sedley was
arrested on the two counts, attempt to
poison and conspiracy to defraud, at
the railway-station, as he returned
from town yesterday evening; he is now
in custody. '
Lord Alphington rose from his chair
aud went to the window. "How
strangely events turn out!" his medita
tions ran. "If it had not been for the
mere accident of that fellow's leaving
the rinir entangled in Bertha Dalton's
dress, this abominable plot might never
have been unraveled, and my noble boy
might never have been able to claim his
own. Heaven bless him!" He turned
once more toward the fire, and resumed

The vast host of admirers of genuine
butter good, old country buttor.which
Mahometan tradition says was one of
the fruits upon the Tree of Life in the
Garden of Eden will have caiie for
rejoicing in the closing of one of the
four oleomargarine factories in Phila
delphia, and the oldest and largest fac
tory of them all. The remainiug
factories are small concerns and have
not in the aggregate the rupaeiiv of
the one wuohu operations havo been
thus indefinitely suspended.
I he ostensible tame of thu shut down
was a scarcity of beef fat. In reaiitv.
though, a fixed disinclination Lupon
the part of Pliiladrlphiaiis to eat the so
called substitute for butter eems to
have been at the bottom of the trouble.
Thin, it was urged, was not surprising,
in view of the fact that in no other sec
tion of tho country, or of the world, for
that matter, is really good butter
fresh, fragrant, rich, well churned so
abundant and so cheap. Within a ra
dius of thirty miles of tho city, there
arc over three thousand dairymen
and farmer w hoso chief source of rev
enue is butter making and whose
churning is acknowledged by all to be
unequalled, ith ole.nmnrgarine at
twentv-tive or thirty-five cenu a pound,
the laboring classes, for whom espw
ially was the beef-butter designed,
steadily and unanimously refused to
use it. From the beginning the factory
was driven to foreign markets, and the
scarcity of fat was but one item among
the many causes which led to its clos
It wan established in 187 bv a party
of New York capitalists, who bought
the right of manufacture in the United
States from Matj, the Frenchman who
was the original patentee of the prepa
ration. Imagining that they possessed
a monopoly, the company built large
works and went to great expense in
equipping the plant. It is reliably
stated that $150,000 was expended in
the purchase of machinery alone. The
oleomargarine was made upon an im
proved plan, i he only fats used were
what is called the caul' and entrail fats.
The fat was first washed clean, and
then ground after tho manner of sau
sage, in huge knives constructed espec
ially for that purpose. After being
ground np to the consistency of mince
meat, the fat was melted at a low tem
perature. The oil was then extracted
by means of hydraulic presses. This
on was presseu nnauy inroua ueavy
cloths, and then churned. With the oil
when churned was mixed about an
equal quantity of cream. The oleo
margarine was packed for market in
large tubs, sometimes in ordinary
prints, but mostly in bulk. It was ex
ported to Europe.the West Indies, MeX'
ico, and vast quantities were sent
through the Southern States, where it
gained favor because it would not be
come rancid. A very Bmall quantity
was sold to retail dealers in this citv.
The average cost of the fat in the
crude was eight cents per pound. The
entire cost of manufacture, including
the churning, added but five cents per
pound to this figure, and at eighteen
cents a pound the product was sold at
a large profit. A pound of fat was
made to vield thirty Der ennt. of oil.
Tha residue was converted into stearlne
and tallow. Although the capacity of
the factory was JilMJ.WO pounds a week.
irom thirty to forty hands being em
ployed, the actual production averaged
only 30.0UO pounds. Philidelphia
