i: Saved from Ruin
I N you had better^attempt
J^ no explanation, Mr. Halbon," the
•senior partner was saying to ine, very
quietly. "No," he went on, as I was
on the point of interrupting him,
^'either to excuse or to incriminate
yourself. For the sake of your fa
ther, who as one of the staunchest
and best servants the Arm ever pos

tioned, we shall not take any more
stringent measures but, of course,
«uc a dismissal, without reason or
references, would be ruin to you. W
trust therefore, that you will be able
to rectify the mistake. Good after
noon."
Ruin! at as just the word for
it all, and it rang in my ears with
terrible significance as I left the

my seat at a desk in the office outside.

that I had been alas! the dupli
a of many. Not half a dozen years
out of my teens, with a berth that
a an older man might have en
vied, the under-cashier in the wealthy
firm of «Marsh & Sampson, of ftlk
one of the largest houses in
he Midlands.
Could I do it? I asked myself the
question that night in the solitude of
niv lodgings. I had been invited out
to spend the 'evening at the house
of fiancee. Alas! I dared not face
her now. So I sat alone in an agony
•of anxious thought. Tim after time
1 counted out my resources The ut-
I could scrape together was
"24 shillings, and, look where I would,
1 could not see my a to laying my
a on more.
The game as up that as evident.
And out of the situation there grew
he desire, stronger anu stronger, to
get away, anywhere from Silkminster
to London, perhaps—London, whith
«er e^erj fortune-hunter or fortune
loser turns his steps. At length a
•definite plan took possession of me.
I had one article of value left, my
bicjcle, and I determined to ride it
up to London, a distance of a hundred
odd miles or so, and sell it when I
there. More than that, I made up
any mind to start that very night. I
-was just I the moodi for it. I wanted
to do something, and here as the
•chance.
Hastily I packed a few things in
in bicjcle "hold-all," filled my lamp,
lenocked at my landlady's door, and
said: "I am going for a long ride,
Mrs Smith—to see a friend. He'll be
almost sure to ask me to stay the
night, so don't expect me till to-mor
row evening."
And in another minute I was bowl
in through the suburbs of Silkmin
ster, until the houses became more
more scattered, the lamp-posts be
.gan to disappear, and at length I was
out in the open country speeding
•awa} on the road that led to iiondon.
Dullminster as now a good five
guiles behind me, and I had entered
upon a stretch of road that as more
than usually dreary and secluded. On
my right was an open evpanse of com
mon and on my left, on the top of an
embankment the main line of the
Great West-Northern railway ran for
so me or three miles parallel with
he road, a hedge between me and the
bottom of the embankment. The mo
mentary flash of a warning red light
on a signal-post as I began riding by
he side of this embankmen set my
mind flowing in a new channel. The
whole country had recently been
aroused to the sense of a terrible dan
ger. The most cold-blooded and das
tardly attempts were being made on
certain of our great trunk railways to
wreck express trains. Some of these
a were successful, and more

this flashed across me as I plodded
along slowly now, for I as riding on
rising ground, and my legs were begin
in to give out a bit. I had ridden over
30 miles it only a few minutes stop,
and the nervous and physical strain
as telling on me a little.
Suddenly as I as riding us slow
I happened to glance upward at the
railway embankment and started vio

ing down with his back toward me,
lashing something with a rope to the
down metals. yards separated us.
Setting my teeth, I prepared for the
attack.
With a spring I was upon him but
too late. He had heard me as soon as
I had left the grassy slope and my feet
sounded upon the ballast, and in a mo
men he as on his legs and facing me.
I managed to get in one good blow
under his guard with my left hand,
which caught square on the jaw,
and with my right hand I seized
by the collar.
"Curse you, let he cried.
"Not I," I shouted back.
"Then take a he replied.
There was a glitter of steel as he
raised his right hand aloft and struck
at my breast. Bu I as too quick for
him. Half-turning the blow aside, I
caught it on the left forearm. I felt
the knife slip under my sleeve, and
the sharp point as it entered my flesh.
That only gave me redoubled fury. Re
leasing my grip on his collar, I gave
his right elbow an upward blow, that

hand right down the embankment and
the next instant I had dodged to he
left, made a feint of rushing past him,
and had tripped him up with a heavy
back-throw with my right arm and leg
—a dodge which I had picked up during
a holiday at Cornwall. He fell, with
an oath, striking the back of his head
against the rail, and lay there, stunned,
like a log. The battle was mine!
Bu there was more to be done, and
no time to be lost. I had to remove
the obstructions from the metals and
secure my prisoner. I wanted light
on the scene. Hastily I dashed down
the embankment, took off my bicycle
lamp, and hurried back again. Then I
saw the extent of his deiilment.
had managed to get three old
sleepers, which were probably lying
by the side of the track awaiting re
moval. of these he had lashed
firmly across the metals, with a space
of about a couple of feet between.
The third he had been in the act of
securing between them pointing at
an angle toward the train, so that
it would catch under the bed-plate
of the engine and wreck the works.
The third sleeper I remo*ed. The I
took the piece of rope he had been
about to use, and tied the wretch's
arms behind him, lashing his feet to
gethe also. Having disposed of him,
I was turning my attention to the
other sleepers, when an ominous
roar in the distance, in the direction
of London, startled me. A train was
coming! With a yell of despair, I set
to work at those ropes It was no
use. I could not undo them in time.
I felt in my pockets—no! I had left
my knife at home. Ah there was the
train-wrecker's weapon Where as

muoh time to find it in the long grass

glanced ahead. There, in the dis

As I asked myself this question I
felt something a trickling from
my left arm. I turned my lantern on

RED ROCK CtlNGS TO NAME.
Story of Ilofr Came by It and

Chang It.
"Up in Columbia county," said a man
who spent the summer up the Hudson,
to a York Sun reporter, "is Ked
Hock, a small hamlet, 26 miles from
Albauy and near East Chatham and
Creechy Lake. Now, Red Rock isn't
much of a place, but there is something,
interesting about it that I fancy all
the world doesn't know. The pres
ent name is not the one it as always
borne, and what its other name was
I don't know. Whatever it was the
people did not like it, and concluded
they would change it. There was no
particular reason why they should call
it Red Rock, but that was determined
upon, and so Red Rock it became.
Then in the course of time strangers
of an inquiring turn of mind began
to ask why the place had such a name,
and as no reason could be given, new
comers to the neighborhood began to
a a name that a something.
This insistence grew so strong that the
old residents began to look around for
a reason for the name of their place,
and at last they found a huge bowlder
near bj which the^ said was what had
suggested the name. But the bowlder
was gray instead of red and the pro
gressionists insisted that that would
not do. A last, the old-timers hit
upon a new plan, and procuring a bar
rel of red paint, the painted the big
rock red. Red Rock, indeed, it was
now, and not onlj was all opposition
to the name overcome, but the painting
of the rock everj spring has become
an annual festival, and the people cele
brate it with a big picnic and general
celebration. It was a new idea to
and if there is anj other town a
where on earth that is christened every

color, I don't Krow where it is."

came on suddenly as it does in the trop

a palpable veil. A noise like the march
of a mighty host was heard, which
proved to be the approach of a tropical
flood heralded by drops as large as
marbles. It churned the still waters
into a phosphorescent foam which ren
dered the darkness only more oppres

come only in the Bight of Benin. The
avalanche cooled us, reducing the tem
perature ten or fifteen degrees, giving
us new life, and relieving our fevered
blood. I told Mr. Block to throw back
the tarpaulin o\er the main hatch anrl
let our duskj friends get some benefit
of it. In half an hour the rain ceased,
but it was as calm and ominous as ever.
I knew this was but the forerunner of
something to follow. We had not long
to wait, for suddenly a blinding flash
of lightning darted through the gloom
from east to west, followed by one in
the opposite direction. Without inter
mission, one blaze after another, and
thunder crashing until our eyes were
blinded and our ears deafened, a thou

A CURIOUS MINERAL.

A curious mineral called moldavite,or
bouteillenstein,has attracted consider
able attention among the geologists
in Austria and Bohemia. The mineral
is in glassy ovals from an inch to an
inch and a half long, and is character
ized by \ariou markings, which look
somewhat like finger impressions,
while others form a network of fur-
rows, which seem in part a rough
radial arrangement.

authors as relics of prehistoric glass

of students seems to be to regard
them as of extra-terrestrial origin.

A HEALTHFUL FRUIT.
Medical Authoritie a a HI«-h
Opinion of the Grape as a a
Par of the Diet.
W have so a warnings against
eating uncooked fruit that it is a re
lief to know that so palatable a fruit
as the grape is prescribed as especial
ly healthful and strengthening, says
the National Stockman. Eate with
other suitable food in quantities from
one to pounds daily, they increase
nutrition, promote secretion, improve
the action of the liver, kidneys and
bowels, and add to the health, he
sugar of the grape requires no diges
tion, but is taken almost at once into
the blood, where it renders up its
force as required. Eate moderately,
with a suitable diet, they will not pro
duce cathartic effects, but a more nat
ural action of the bowels, so are
generally laxative. What more could
one ask of a fruit than that it should
be both luscious and health-giving?
There is one word of warning, though,
that we might offer: Whe the grapes
are procured from any place other
than from your vines, they should
be carefully washed before eaten, for
the dust upon not infrequently
carries with it impure and unhealth
ful particles.
One has experimented says that
borax will preserve grapes in their
natural state for many months, by
packing them in layers with a liberal
sprinkling of borax between. The
fruit should be well selected, perfect
and dry, and the borax must com
pletely cover each layer. It can be
used repeatedly for the same purpose,
after being spread and thoroughly
dried. This method is also recom
mended for the preserAation of cher
ries, currants, blueberries, gooseber
ries, etc., none of which would be so
desirable preserved in their natural
state as grapes.
Those who by experience of
the strengthening properties of
grape juice will not allow any of the
fruit to go to waste or be eaten by
poultry. Diluted with water, sweet
ened and iced, it as no equal as a
harvest drink.
Successio of a
Vegetables of which every garden
to furnish a succession are rad
ish, lettuce, peas, string beans, beets,
cress and turnips. Every book that
was ever written on gardening has
advised "sowing for succession every
ten days or weeks," yet only the
gardens managed by gardeners hired
specially to see to such things really
furnish such successions. The farm
er, in particular, is apt to neglect
the garden, if he does not forget it
altogether, after the first sowing.
Perhaps it is a waste of time to ex
hort to care for the garden, but
considering he amount which the
garden contributes to the family liv
ing, it seems as though it should be
worthy of better treatment.
No Glut of Good Batter
There is no glu in the market of
really good and toothsom butter. In
every to there are housekeepers
search in vain for fine butter.
What is offered to them as "high-grade"
butter is generally unattractive,
mottled, greasy to the feel, insipid or
else unpleasant to the taste, full of wa
ter, over-salted, over-colored or in
some other a unsatisfactory.
Around every to are farmers

Good Luck.
Those conduct winter dairying
on a truly profitable scale always have
a portion of their herd coming
milch early in the winter months. Wha
should be done it the resulting
calves that come to us in this incle
men season of the year It is not wise
to kill them for their skins, which will
hardly pay for the labor expended in
removing the hides neither is it ex
pedient to attempt to raise them neg
lectfully. The writer has universally
had "good luck" with winter-born
calves by adhering to the following
general plan:
Male calves not intended for raising,
either as steers or bulls, I have profit
ably converted into veal. There is nev
er a time when a good veal calf will
not sell readily for cash or its equi\ cl
ient. not, however, let them suckle
the cows, nor feed them on whole milk.
This a of making veal is never truly
profitable to a dairyman. Feed on
skimmed milk with the addition of
cooked corn meal or oil meal. If the
skimmed milk is fed a the animals
will relish it better and fatten enough
faster to amply pay for the trouble in
volved.
Th place in which they are housed
will have much to do with a successful
result. Thi should always be apart
from the milch cows and where the
latter cannot see or hear them. The
calves' quarters should be extra warm,
as the young creatures cannot stand
the same degree of cold that more ma
ture cattle can. A too cold apartment
is one reason a make a failure
with winter-born calves. Provide bed
dig liberally and feed liberally and reg
ularly.
Choice heifer calves not designed for
fattening but for raising into future
cows, should be kept separate from
their veal brothers and sisters, with of
course less oleaginous and more nitro
genous food provided. One's aim should
be to keep them in a thrifty, growing
condition, which, by right manage
ment, can be as readily accomplished
in winter as in summer. Calves so
reared, when warm weather comes will
be in a position to go onto grass and de
velop into fine thrifty yearlings.—Ohio

ENLARGING A BARN.

The plan generally followed in en
larging a barn is to shove out the

room and some room for hay and
grain, but there is nearly always a

of enlargement does not permit of
storing away much hay under the
low roof. It is depth and height
which compacts hay and vastly in
crease the capacity of the barn.
A few years ago I had occasion to
enlarge my barn, which was 26 by
40 feet, with a double-pitch roof. I
wanted more room for both stalls and
fodder. I added 14 feet to the width,
thus making the barn 40 by 40 feet,
but instead of putting on a shed
roof I lowered one side of the shin
gle roof and sliding it onto the new
plate, raised it to the same pitch as
before, and then connected the
sections with a nearly flat tin roof,
forming an end view like the one
shown in the illustration. The dot
ted line indicates the former shape
of the barn. I have never been able
to raise enough to fill this barn.

pacity, for the addition is practically
in the center and is 40 by 14 by 24
feet. The expense of the alteration

Stripping:* in Fat
Th Farmer's Advocate (Canada)
says: That there is a marked differ*
ence in the quality of milk first drawn
from the cow, as compared with that
which comes away towux ds the finish,
was clearly shown by an experiment
carried out some time ago by a well
dairy expert. This gentleman
found that while the average per cent,
of butter fat in the first half pint of
milk withdrawn from a worked
out to only 1.32 per cent., the butter fat
in the strippings, or the last half pint,
amounted to over nine per cent. There
was hardly any difference in the per
centag of the other solids present in
the last drawn milk.
'When in Oflt Cow.
I drying off a cow, the animal
should be put upon rather dry food and
the quantity of milk withdrawn at each
meal should be gradually lessened—in
other words, a little milk should al
a be left behind in the udder. Aft
er a days only as should be
withdrawn as is found necessary in or
der to relieve he animal of an uncom
fortable pressure of the milk glands.
I addition to this the cow should be
given about half an ounce of powdered
alum in drinking water twice daily, and
he udder should be rubbed with an
ointment consisting of one drachm of
Belladonna extract, to an ounce of lard.
