My poor friend,

But 1 observe that the scientific jour

Persons more charitable if not much
better informed have stated that his
nerves became so Irritable nnder the
pressure of those tremendous studies
and calculations that he felt stifled as by
a crowd, even in his lonely house on Ep

in this. He said to ine once that every
day seemed to be Derby day when be
shut his eyes. But a mind so well bal
anced, so reasonable, would never have
been tempted to withdraw into the
desert for such was his abode on the
Mull of Cantyre by fancies like these.
The reluctance to move which is natur

Peqttita had long; foreseen the necessity
of securing' a habitation in which he
could carry through his last decisive
processes without fear of harming any

It is five years since I perceived that

led me to the result which they seemed
to indicate, when it would be
advisable to have a p!ed a terre'

I consulted Scot, in the strictest
confidence, who advised Ratholin.
He has carried out my wishes admir
ably. The little house is comfortable

hope. As for the main point, there is

know more, come to me at Epsom as

you stop a week. I have some very
curious novelties to sbow you."
Clearly there was no "accident" in
this case. If my poor friend did not
know what would happen, he foresaw
at least grave danger. In truth, the
circumstances published prove so
mnch to anyone who considers thetn
thoughtfully. It would have been an
accident iudeed, and a strange one. If a
man of Prof. Sequita's "character and
habits had been left alone in the
house, unless by his express desire. Of
course, he did not send away that ad
mirable woman to whom savants all
over the world are offering respectful
sympathy. Nor did he volunteer per
mission to the servants, Watkins and
his wife, to attend the festivity at
ltroath. With the same patient in
genuity which led him to such marvel

visit two days before, and that the
butcher should call, in his tax cart,

Sequita, the giory of English science,
the dear friend of so many among his
confreres, undertook that last opera
tion which should crown, and, as it
were, sum np all the labors of the
human intellect, in all ages.
What was that operation? I cannot
tell precisely. Mrs. Sequita baa found
very little to assist conjecture in the
accounts of that

pose before leaving home. For If the
operation succeeded, he designed, 1
know, to make a public announcement
Instantly; but if it failed, he would be
anxious to prevent others following the
same deadly course of experiment.
Therefore, it Is scarcely to be hoped
that detailed memoranda survive.
But although unable to give any ex
act information, I can furnish some
hints: Prof. Sequita chatted to me
a friend from boyhood, ignorant of
technical science more freely, per
haps, than to his brother savants,
upon the final purpose of his investi
gations. There is no barm. 1 think,
in sketching the general idea which
those conversations left on my mind.
Everyone knows that the higher prop
erties of electricity were his special
study of late years. After inventing
all those wondrous applications of the
power which have made his name im
mortal and gained him such wealth,
he sought, in his own words, the First
Cause. Of his conclusions upon that
matter, up to a very recent date, there
is no secret they will be published
shortly. But this inquiry led him, by a
parallel course, to speculate on the
mechanics of electricity. That it is the
only force of nature, as we say, the
professor had demonstrated long ago.
That it is life, not only the principle of
life, and that men possess intelligence
in proportion to the volume or the ac
tivity of electric matter within them
will be shown in the work forthcom
ing. From these conditions it follows
that If electricity could be stored in
the human body, every mental or phys
ical capacity wonld be strengthened to
a degree only limited by the amount
which it could hold. "Visions of glory
crowd the aching sight," murmured iny
poor friend many a time as in broken,
thoughtful phrases he hinted rather
than spoke to me of the theme that ab
sorbed him. The feeblest mind would

would rise to the level of angels. Air
and water would be as familiar U man
as earth. Ko limits would bound his
forces or his enterprise. And he could
live unchanged for ever.
But how to charge the body with this
elixir, and how to retain it? Such were
the problems which held Prof. Sequita
enthralled daily and nightly for ten
years past. He never confided the re
sult of his labors to me, and if any
were dropped, I had not knowledge
enough to grasp them. Gradually,
however, 1 came to perceive that his
course was growing plainer. He
thought at least that he had a clew. It
must have been about that time Mr.
Scot received instructions to build a
little house in some unpeopled spot

I have no suspicion. Once, however, I
touched upon that point, and he an

This was the operation, I make no
doubt, which shocked the universe by
its terrible result. Everyone has heard
how the merrymakers of Arbroath
were tossed headlong on a sudden in
heaps, how the farm buildings were
unroofed, and a tidal wave'swept the
coast. To speak of an "explosion" is
singularly inacurate. All agree that
no sound was heard, no wind felt, no
movement of the earth. Prof. Sequita
was torn to pieces by the genie he had
raised. Of his cottage, and all in it,
not a trace remains; but the soil be
neath is undisturbed, the foundation
walls are shaved off, as it were, at the
level of the ground. 1 have visited the
spot how sadly unlike the visit to
which I had looked forward and in
truth superstitions persons might think

dangers, touch that point? Sometimes

strips two or three inches wide, which
hang- down on the sides of the brooder.
The brooder house should be ten feet
square, seven feet high in front and
five feet high at the rear, tarred paper
roof, the building to be of upright
boards, lined inside with heavy paper
so as to have the building warm. The
dotted lines seen at the end view and
on the front view are intended to show
that a curtain made of heavy muslin
may be arranged at the front to guard
against storms and winds, or it may
be of glass. Glass is better, but muslin
is cheaper, and may be arranged so as
to roll up iu favorable weather. In
very cold climates the muslin will not
answer, however. The position of the
brooder is also shown. The design of the
brooder house is of a cheap one, and for

The Interesting story ot lady Whs)
Had Lived (or Thirty Tears In the
Shadow of Swddsa Death
Bala Old Ago Recalls m
(From the St. Louis Globe Democrat!
"Yes, I ought to be happy in this little
paradise, and now I am, but there wcrelong
years when I lived in theshadow, not of tho
forest trees that loom up so grandly on our
hillside, but in the shadow of death. For
years I saw the sun go down behind the
western hills, and as I retired for the night
1 added to the prayer, which it has been the
custom of my dear husband and myself to
utter together, the old, the sweet, the trust
ful invocation of childhood, 'If I should die
before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to
take. I never gazed upon the orb asit sank
behind the hills without the haunting fear
that it was for the lost time. '
The speaker was Mrs. 8. 8. Ballaine, the
wife ot Rev. S. B. Ballaine, of Horine Sta
tion, Jefferson County, Mo. Mrs. Ballaine
has for many years led the life of on invalid
to whom the dread summons might come at
any moment, until a kind providence threw
in her way the remedy that has restored her
health, her vigor, one would almost say,
heryouth. Her recovery is unsurpassed in
the history of medical science and should be
repeated in every paper and publication
in the land that others suffering with the
same terrible affliction might profit by tiie
experience of Mrs. 13auaiue and be saved.
A correspondent of the C'oor-Demorrat
determined to start the good work and
called at the Ballaine Home, believing that
the story would be of far greater value and
Interest if told in the lady's own words.
"My story," said she, is a simple one of
suffering and relief. I hare bad a disease of
the heart from which few ever recover, and
from which I never expected to escape. It
was In 13IH that I was first made aware that
I had heart trouble. I had risen and lighted
a fire, feeling in normal health, when I sud

Tbey told me that 1 was black in the face.
and that when first picked up no motion of
the heart was perceptible. About six years
ago I was attacked with a variety of afflic
tions, such as short breath, extreme weak
ness, fainting spells, and, most annoyingof
all, a burning, irritating nettle rash, that at
times rendered me almost frantic, and, as
you can rcadilyundcrstand,serinuslai:!rra
vatcd my heart troubles. 1 had settled
down to contemplate the end, and such was
my suffering that, wicked as it was, I some
times prayed for it, wlien ono day glancing
over a religious paper published in Mon
treal. I read the testimony of a lady whose
rase was much like mine, and who hail been
benefited by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills lor
Palo People. Having seen similar accounts
in other rcntitablo naners. I resolved to try
them. It was a heaven-sent resolution.

LAVATER'S ART REVIVED.
Character Reading from fijie Lines and
Features of the tare.
The latest social amusement is char
acter reading from tile face. A girl
with just the right kind of eyes might
lie able to do almost as deadly work
with it as with palmistry. Of course
the new science in all its completeness
is intricate and occult and all t he rest
of it. but a few general principles have
tieen deduced which may interest the
multitude. The eyebrows, for in
stance, that jut downwanl on to the
roof of the nose, indicate that
their owner is capable of subter
fuge, and if not counterbalanced
by a large share of conscientious
ness the person is sure to lie a
fibber. If the ears lie far lack, it de
notes intellectuality. If the eves are
deeply set in the head, the owner of
them is shrewd and keenly observant.
If those little lines yon have in the
forehead lietween the eves nmnlter
two, j-on are a lover of justice: if three
or four, yon are benevolent and wise;
if only one, you are strict in small mat
ters. If the bridge of your nose is thin,
then you are quick lo part with your
money: if it is thick, vou are greedy
and avaricious still if at the same time
your lower lip lie full and ruddy you
are only avaricious in order to have
plenty to give away to those you love.
If your upper lip rises nnd shows your
teeth, you are erratic and easily tired.
If yon know anybody whose eyebrows
are shaggy and thick, lieware of
them for they have a had temper. 31.
Tight Shoes Are Tgly.
The mistake most foolishly and re
peatedly made is the purchase of shoes
that arc too small. If thefMit is large,
a small shoe, merely K-canse it is small,
will not conceal the defect. It will,
also, if the lady persists in using it, in
crease the size of the ftiot by exerting
too great pressure on the joints, thus
enlarging them. Few feet are abso
lutely pretty, and a small shoe will
display this shortcoming quicker than
any other shoe, as it will have to as
sume the shape of the foot in order to
be borne. Then the question of per
sonal comfort ought to weigh some
thing in this alleged era of common
sense. French women are the most
particular women in the world as to
the fit of the shoe and the perfection
of all its details. It must be snug
across the instep, must tit the ankle
without a wrinkle, and must be plenty
long. They never use high heels and
sharp toes on their walking shoes,
but give their every joint all the
working room it needs. Washington
