THE ROOK ISLAND. ABGU8. SATURDAY, JANUAKY 11, 1890.

Whose lire, like a shadowed at re in,
flowed on fto softly, (Trolly,
Till It disapprarsd like a dream.
On ber llpa the nam, of a loyer
Bhe had not daTd to wed,
II r life went out of tbe darkness
To a glorious llht Instead.
And here Is one from another
The rme at ber bridal feast
Had H'arrely fallen and faded
Kre death struck cold at ber breast,
When life was fairest and sweetest
To yield Its rtrh nectar up;
This was tbe fate that was waiting,
Tble was tb, bitterest nip.
There ara Mtrrs atlll more sacred

While my eyes ara moist with dew.

I thought lie was asleep, for he bad been
quiet awhile an unusual thin;; for him
when be sn.Mtnly raised himself up on bla
elbow anl lske at me.
"See here," say, he. He spoke as plain as
could Iw, though ho hmln't niurta voice; tb.
doctors anil his lung were all gone, but for
all that anybody could tell that be'd always
bad a real pleasant way of (peaking. Some
how ha did hare a coaxing way with blm,
different from any man I ever took car, of.
No matter what he said and he had no pa
tienc whatever you couldut Rot angry and
you eouldn t help trying to please him.
"Tell me now just what they soy," ha went
on. I suppose I can t last much longer f
"Oh, we ran t none of us UU wbnt turn

down as easy as I could and fixing the spread

did look out of all reason, but even then you
would have known hun for a handsome man.
"I want to tell you my story," savi he.
They often begin in that way. It appear,
like when they're away from all their own

know, it don't do any good; but I always hu
mor my patients, though some of the nurses
do rail me a fool for my polus. "If it doe,
tan any good, kt Vm talk," say, I. I always
listen. But sometimes they get all mixed np
and can't tell you anything straight after all;
sometimes they drop off in the middle. But
this one was a real gentleman, and I knew he
had a story coming to the hospital as lie did,
straight fmm bis cilice, and the young man
that came with bun saying: "tie haan t got
any f. lends to go to."
"I thought you was going tosleepto-uight,"
say, I, sitting down by bim comfortable like.
But be didn't take uo notice of me; he Just
stretched out his baud and looked at it. He
had the whitest little hum la, aa slender and
white as any lady's, and on his third fluger
be wore a handsome seal ring. It was
green leal, with a kind of flgger on It. "It
belongs to my family coat of arms," says he,
and he laughed kind o' scornful. And then
he looked up at me with that wishful look of
bla, aud, says he: "I wnnt you to send it to
somebody when it's all over with me. I'm
going to tell you who she is before I finish
Then he shifted himself a little and went
right on without looking at me. I couldn't
have stopped him if I had tried to.
"To begin with," says he, "I was born at
sea. I'm the mail without a country. I
never had one. My mother had been amus
ing herself In Europe, and the went on amus
ing herself for a good many year, after. I
dont think she troubled herself much about
me, though 1 have beard her say I looked
like an angel, iu long curls aud knickerbock

but wouieu ought to know liest about those
"We bad plenty of money in those days.
My father was in business. I didot know
very much about it, except that he furnished
tbe wherewithal. We bud to ask bim for It,
and sometimes he blustered a little about our
spending so much, but it always came. I
went to school and to college. I bad plenty
of friends, plenty of fun, and dulu't waut
for anything in those duys."
Be stopped for a minute and looked at me
" Ttsnt much of a story when you come to
tell It," say be. "Somehow it seems like
more than it is."
But pretty soon he looked at hi ring again.
It was too looee on his Dnger, aud he began
turning it round with the other poor, thin
"They had all sorts of nainos for me," he
began. "My ou name is Churles Edward.

tbat time. Hut I haven t got to that yet.
"I came homo from college, and theredidn't
o to iw anything very pressing for me to
do. Father never sske of ray going Into a
profession, and I huted business. Mother and
Anna Anna was my eldest lister, then there
was another little one they both liked to
have me to go about with them, for father
waa sick enough of it by that time. We trav

mudas, and A una and I went over to England
for a year. W mado a regular dig of It,
seing all the Knglish cathedrals. Tbat was
Kan's idea. But we hail no end of a good
time. Toon we came home, and father got
lower and slower about supplying the sinew

In debt, though J bad mistrusted something

"At last tbe crash came, and it was a liad

The dimensions of the Crystal palace, the
building of the great exhibition in Hyde
park, London, In 1.M, were as follows: It
waa l.tvd feet in length and 4.io feet In
breadth in tbe widest part It covered over
eighteen acres. Tbe total cubic contents
were 3a.0O0.0OU feet. Tbe length of sash bar
used was about 3U5 miles and the quantity of
glass about UOO.UOu square feet, weighing up
ward of tons. The total area of the ground
floor was equal to 77,74 square feet and that
of tbe galleries to 217,100 square feet. Tbe
width of tbe main avenue was described as
twlng nearly double that of the nave of St.
Paul', while its length was four times as
great. The following comparisons were made
at the time: "The walls of St. Paul's are 4
feet in thickness, while thorn of the Crystal
palace are only N inches. St. Paul's occupied
thirty-five years In building, while tbe Hyde
park building was finished in less tban eight
een weeks. All the dimensions of the build-
