A Califoruiao Who lost Ui lteaon For

Muurice Long wasaixjpular young rancher
in Keru county in 18ft. Ho was then about
2S years of afco, nnd possesscl a herd of cat
tle and about fl vo thou wnd acres of land. A
youug lady, the duugh 'at of a wealthy mer
chant in BaUersfiold, was ouo day led to the
altar by the young g ntkniati and returned
with him to his ranch i,s Mrs. Long.
The youu couple w re as happy as mar
ried wo ile in tho tiooU i are alleged to be, and
everything looked bright for the future Of
their cosy home in the foothills. Life, always
charming to the young, was particularly
rosy tinted to Mr. and Mrs. Long. Suddenly
a durk pall whs spi ea 1 over tho life of Mau
rice, for the young wife sickuned and died.
Tho romaitis now lie in the Gakersfield ceme
tery by the sido of the mother she lost in her
01UEP AND A SEi OND MARRIAGE.
Life lost all its hojie to Mr. Long when bis
oeautirul wife was taken. He could not en
dure tho loneliness of bis ranch life, and, find
ing a purchnser, sold everything, determined
to leave California nuil cut himself loose from
all the tender memories of his young man
hood. Keniainin;r for a brief period at the
house of hU fnther-in-1 iw, he shortly went to
tho home of his parents, in the iSauta Clara
valley, near San Jose. Unable to shake off
his grief, ho sank finally into a melancholy,
from which his friends feared he would never
recover. By persistent efforts and tho care
of a judicious pbysiciati, tho young man was
partially respired, but the condition of his
mind was still uncertain. At times the un
sUsulinoss of his resn manifested itself in
foolish imbecility. Afparently ho recovered,
however, and went U Chico aud located In
that little city, opcnini:a feed and salo stable.
Business prospered, and encouraging reports
came to the iauta Cla -a home in the occa
sional letters received I'V tho tiarents.
FiuuUy one came announcing his marriage
to a young lady or that city. Scarcely a
yenr had ixuwed since tlie death of his wife on
the Kern county ran.'h, and, although Ida
friends were surprised at the announcement,
remembering his f oneness for her and his
grief at her deceaiio, 1 hey strangely enough
regarded tho second riarriage as a further
evidence of restored reason. Sit months
more pa.sscd, during which all reports and a
single visit . sjitisiled th anxious rriends that
Mr. Long was in perfe t. mental and physical
health. One duy a painful telegram from
his wife announcing tho sudden wreck of
their son's reason was received by old Mr.
Long at Sun Jose. Going in answer to the
tneiiMige to Chico, tho tomiile truth of the
calamity forced itself upon him, for hi son
was a ruviog maniac.
With a heavy heart the father conveyed
Maurice Long to Stockton and placed hir" In
the insane hospital Tl e examining physician
pronounced him hojielessly insane. The
young wife returned t ) her arauta. A lew
months later she gave birth to a child. When
he had grown strong io visited hnr husband
at the asylum in the ,-alu hojm of a sign of
recognition or an evidence of affection. A
brother remained at Chico conducting the
business. Visits wore made from time to
time by the friends of the unfortunate pa
tient, but they alwayi returned more sad
dened than ever at his condition.
in: DIDN'T KNOW HIS WIFE.
Two years were iisf od iu Stockton, whan
tho joyful intelligent was received by old
Mr. Long thut his son seemed in a fair way
to recover. The news was almost too good
to bolii-ve. Careful nursing for six weeks
followed, and the phyuclau sent word that
the wi'e aud friends might visit him, but
with this statement car. 10 tho startling intelli
gence that Muurice Long had alwolutuly for
gotten all events that had transpired since
the salo of his ranch after tho burial of his
wife at Bakersficld. Thinking her presence
would restore her to hi Memory, tho faithful
littlo mother at Chico went to the hospital,
carrying with her the boy, mw nearly two
years of age. The render can imagine her
torriblo grief when the saw before her the
face of her husband at d beheld in it all the
evidence of restored intellect, but no recog'
uition of his spouse. Viurtly she recalled the
events of their courtship and marriage, and
despairingly she held lfore him the chubby
faced buby. Tho jioor man hung his head in
despair, unable to remember anything that
she sought to bring to bis attention.
The death of lior husband in his imbecility
would have been easy to bear in comparison
with the terriilc fact hich here confronted
her. Almost wild with grief she returned to
hor home in Chico. Mix weeks longer the
poor man staved p.t Stockton, gradually gain
ing strength. Tim Jittle woman came no
more t see him. Th- father, the brother
und the iliiriim by d -grees convinced him
of the truth of the story of his marriage and
the birth of his son. V.'hen he was released
he repaired to Chico at d accepted the situa
tion as a truth established iu his mind by
testimony but not expirieuco. lie took bis
wife and child, and selling his business re

who bore his namo unit the child who called

These strange events occurred seven years
ago. The couple have tesidedou their pretty
littlo ranch at Goleta i early that length of
timo. To oil appearances the man and wife
are one. They never r fer to their terrible
sorrow, but each striven to forget the awful
past and live In the present. It is a strange
story. The neighbors know nothing of the
circumstances. The jentlomau who gives
this information was a resident of Chico at
the time referred to and familiar with all the
harrowing details, hi ving learned them

UNDER THE SNOW.
Living Five Weeks on Goat' Milk Under
an Avalanche In the Alps.
A remarkable instance of three persons
surviving an imprisonment of Gve weeks un
der an avalanche is recorded in "Narrative
of Peril and Suffering." In the valley of the
Upper Stura, at the foot of the Alps, is the
little hamlet of Bergoletto. In the winter of
1755 the falls of snow ' were uncommonly
heavy. On the l!Uh of March the parish
priest, who was on his way to the church,
heard a noise from the mountains, and, cast
ing up his eyes, he saw two avalanches de
scending towards the village. He gave the
alarm to some villagers and then retreated
into his own housn.
The avalaneliesoamoaud buried over thirty
bouses, and twenty two persons were found
to bo misiing, among them tho parish priest
who had given the alarm. The amount of
snow which lay over the ruined dwellings
was about 4! foot deep, 270 feet long and Co
When the surviving peasauts had shaken
off tho terror and depression which such an
event must necessarily cause, they set about
trying to save any life or property possible.
More than iSM) poasants from neighboring vd
tages came to their assistance. But they
oould do little; the thickness of the snow
mass ..was so great, and the snow continued to
tall from the clouds in such amount that they
were obliged to discontinue their fruitless ex
ertions, and wait till the setting in of the
worm April iuds which would partly melt
the gigautic snow piles.
On the IStb of April tho villngers returned
to their melancholy task. It was with no
hope of rinding any human lioing alive. One

was beuenth the avnliiur-ho, ti-as most aetiv
in the search. By iho 24th of April he had
advanced so far, that after breaking through
six foot of ioo lie could touch the ground with
a long pole. Three, friends worked with him.
Tho four worked vigorously, and made
their way, at length, into Iloocia's house, but,
no ono, dead or livlug, was there. As it was
probable that, at the futal moment, the vic
tims had sought shelter in the stable, which
was about a hundred feet from tho house,
Roccia and his companions directed their
efforts in that quarter.
After tiny had burrowed for some time,
one of them thrust a pole through an aper
ture, and on withdrawing it hoard a hoarse,
faint voice say :
''Help, oh ilear husband! Help, dear
brother! We are alive."
They now worked with redoubled activity.
and soon made a considerable opening. And
there, under tho snow, Koccia. to his joy,
found his wife, daughter and a sister-in-law.
The three suiTcrers were incapable of mov-
mg, nnd were shrunken almost to skeletons.
They were carefully removed from their
place of imprisonment and conveyed to the
house of a friend, and proper measures
adopted for their restoration. In a few days
thoy were fairly recovered.
Their lives were preserved during these
long five weoks in the following manner:

Through the whole of their imprisonment

Father Dam ion, who has been devoting
himself to tho lepers exiled at Molokai, in the
Sandwich Island group, is actually giving his
life to them. Ho Is thus described by a priest
who is his assistant: "Leprosy has done its
work in turns, at his ears, his eyes, nose.
throat, his hands and his lungs. Tho poor
father is completely disfigured; hisvoico is
almost extinct. Fortunately ho has yet the
use of his bauds, which a great number of
other people have lost ; and also that his feet
are not yet falling to pieces, as happens to so
many here, he is yet so useful, so necessary,
aud that for many tilings. He has under his
charge over 1U0 leper orphans. This in itself
is not a light burden, there being no one to
help us but leper boys; besides, the number
increases every week. The father has also
begun (about a month after my arrival) to
build a new church (thirty by seventy feet),
forty feet of which is of stone, aud the rest of
wood. We have only one mason, a white
leper, an Irishman. Father Dumien is the
head carjriter, and his helpers are two or
three lopor boys. Although 1 am not a leper,
I could not leave here to go to any other of
these isluuds without a proper certificate
from the board of health. But I have no
wish to go anywhere. My missiou is here,
and hero I'll remain." Doubtless this priest
will lie in the some grave which is destined
for Father Dumiun. 2ew York Sun.
Guides for Ladies.
A plan is on foot in this city to form a
small company which shall hire out lady
guides to strangers who visit New York. Of
coarso, the strangers must be ladies also. The
plan will be somewhat similar to that of the
district messenger system. A fixed sum trill
be charged for each hour that the guide is
engaged nnd all the attractive points of tho
city can be visited. For visitors who wish
to go shopping it ia believed that the plan
will be particularly welcome, as something

twenty years I have been troubled with

I had my case treated by several promi

of money, but yet getting no better. My
attention was attracted by the cures said
to have been affected bv B. B. B., and
commenced taking it merely as an exper

A VALUABLE EXPERIENCE.
One of the most Worthy Men of the State
gives the Public the Benefit of some
Truths drawn from his Long Life.
passing along a street in Brooklyn re
rhen I saw a venerable and benevolent
looking old gentleman assisting a yoona-er and
feeble man along the street. The scene wasench
an unusual one, that I volunteered my help to the
elderly man, and learned that be was the well-
known doctor T. 8. Wilcox, and that he was help
ing the young man. who was s consumptive, to an
Institution of which he bad charge. 1 accompa
nied them, aaalstinic aa best I could, aid aaked the
elderly gentleman some questions touching els
past history and bis rich experiences of life. He
replied that he thought be cou d put the matter
more clearly In writing, and at my request gave
me the following statement:
"I have been In tne ga. end practice of medi
cine for fifty yean, belne now over seventy years
of age, and nave chanje of th. Sanitarian hospital
located at Mo. 103 Lawrence street, Brooklyn. N.
Y. During my lifetime of practice I have found
that more than one-third of all death arise from
consumption of the lungs or some lung trouble.
For a century doctors have tried to reach aud over
come this dli-ease, but have never succeeded. Few
people who have lung trouble know It; few peo
ple realise tbeir danger until it Is too late. After
a thorough trial of all known remedies,! have set
tled down to tbe use of puce stimulants lor all
lung difficulties, and I Hod nothing o pure or val
uable aa Duffy's Pure Malt Whisky. One of the
auperlor advantages, possessed onW by tbla whis
ky. Is its onlc power. It not only check tbe
waate of lung tistue,but it tones and builds up the
system wonderfully. In'the fcanitarun and ia my
venera) practice, I use it constantly and I have
never known it to fail me."
I was greatly Impressed by the sincerity and
truth of Dr. Wilcox, and believe his statement can
