A Laat ng Bronzing Solution.
A solution in whicb bronze powder is

patented in tbe German empire. Dama.
resin is mixed with one-third of dry car
bonate of potassium or carbonate of so

thoroughly stirred together, and then in
thin layers is exposed for several months
to a temperature of 120 dees. The resia
thus obtained is dissolved in benzine,
free from all traces of acid, by ammonia
gas, when a tarnish is yielded in which
the bronze powder remains suspended.

A BOSTON MAN'S TRYING ORDEAL
WITH BUT $5 IN CHICAGO.
Tbe Startling; Predicament That Hay Oc
cur to Any Well to Do Man Who I.
Obliged to Travel and Has a Limited
Bane of Supplies A Truthful Account.
Has any modern novelist analyzed the
emotions of a man who finds himself in a
strange city, far from bis base of supplies,
with only some four or five dollars in his
pocket? A man, that is, who isn't a
tramp or one accustomed to doliarlessness.
and who is too much of a gentleman to ol
tain unlimited board and lodging while
putting on every appearance of being
flush. Not long ago a friend of the lis
tener, who was making a rapid journey
toward the west, expected a remittance at 1
Chicago. He had not been keeping track
of bis outgoes, and was astonished on ar
riving at that city one evening, and look
ing into his pocket book to get some change
to fee a sleeping car porter, to fiud that he
bad exactly a rive dollar bill left.
He did not know the address of a soul in
Chicago to whom he could go to borrow
money. Tbe first thing be did was to find
that there was no remittance for him from
Boston, and the next to send a telegram.
collect," to bhmson at the office at home
to wire him some funds. Then he went to
a European hotel, where bis room would
cost him a dollar a day, and waited. He
had only a light traveling bag, and the
botel people made him pay a eight's lodg
ing in advance. He ate bis supper in a
very confident way for forty-five cents;
breakfast next morning, another forty-five.
and lunched on a plate of 60up for fifteen.
Astonishing that be didn t bear from
Boston! Dinner time came and he couldn't .
really get off for less than thirty-five cents.
That, with the dollar for the room, left
bis assets r- b0. All the evening he haunt
ed the telegraph office, but not a word
came from Boston. Meantime be had
walked over pretty nearly the whole of
Chicago, and bad sat on tbe lake front in
Lincoln park for hours, wondering what
gave the lake such a melancholy, lone
some, hard up look.
NO ANSWER FROM BOSTON.
He bad gazed into the faces of thousands
of people on Clark and State streets, and
had derived some extremely doleful be-
gnilement from picking out tbe men to
whom he mibt possibly venture to say
presently, "Mister, would you give me the
price of a loaf of bread, sir?" Then be
went back to the telegraph office for tbe
tenth time and gave bis name and address
again for an answer. "Look here'" said
the man at the window, "your message
to Boston has come back. Man can't be
found. Fifty cents, please,"
He turned sick ns he paid the half dollar.
and feverishly counted the remaining $2.10
in his pocketbook. Then he hastily got off
a telegram to another man at the office in
Boston; Slimson was out of town, of
course, and some blundering person had
refused bis telegram, iierdition take hini.
Well, he could go another twenty-four
hours, he supposed, somehow.
Next morning he went to a cheap dairy
restaurant and breakfasted on hominy and
milk for fifteen cents, bis thrifty and sus
picious hotel keeper having meantime ex
acted another dollar for the room. Bal
a nee on hand, ninety-five cents. Not
enough to pay for the room anot her nigh 1
He went on his melancholy round through
the streets and parks and bark to tbe tele
graph office. Everybody looked simply
tragical. Should he go without his dinner
and snpper, and try to induce the hotel
keeper to take ninety -five cents for a dol
lar? DOWN TO THE LAST DOLLAIL
He was in mortal terror lest the telegraph
office should comedown upon him for fiftj
Cents more for another undelivered tel'
gram. Twelve o'clock came, and he was
never 60 hungry In his life. Nervously
weak he was, too. He wondered if he
couldn't earn a dollar by contributing an
article to some newspaper on "How It
Really Feels to Be Hungry." Gods! If
ever again he refused a man a quarter on
the street who said be was hungry, be
hoped that he might be runished with
slow starvation. Such an appetite makes
a man desperite.
He rushed into a first class restaurant
with an intention to order a sirloin steak,
but weakened when be got in, and put
himself off with a plate of soup twenty
five cents. When be got out on the street
he fingered the half dollar and tbe two
dimes he bad in his pocket and reflected
that be had better go hungry than try to
sleep that night on a bench in the park.
However, be reflected that he was just
seventy cents better off than a man who
badn't a copper. This gave him a compar
ative sense of wealth, and be entered the
telegraph office very cheerfully.
Not a word I What on earth was he
going to do n that great city, with no
money and no friends? Everybody in Bos
ton had gone back on bim that was plair
He even began to wonder whether, if he
ever got back to Boston, he wouldu't find

He stood in t he door of the telegraph of

Slimson tbe very man he bad first tele
graphed tof "le bad somehow accustomed
himself, in these horrible two days, to the
thought of bi ng a miserable unfortunate,
scorned by everybody, that he was almost
on thejioiut of letting Slimson go by with
out calling him. But he braced up and
rushed out at hi tn.
"Perkins! Why, what in the world"
They went to a big restaurant together.
Tbe recording angel never so much as
made a memorandum of the fact that Per
kins wickedly ordered a porterhouse steak
with mushrooms, and rice birds to go with
it. and a quar. bottle of champagne.
This is a truthful account of a real thing.
But it would be good "realism," too, not
to have the remittance arrive, uor Slimson
heave in sight, nor any sort of relief come.
It is bad enough to be without a dollar
simply because oue is out of reach of his
base of supplies. But suppose be has no
longer any base of supplies. Suppose the
last dollar is gone, and there is noplace
from which any more dollars are to come?

TWO , LOVERS.
Two lovers by a moss grown spring;
They leaned soft cheeks together there,
Mingled the dark and sonny hair.
And heard the wooing thrushes sing.
O budding timet '
O love's blest prime!
Two wedded from the portal stept;
The bell made happy caroling.
Tbe air was soft aa fanning wings.
While petals on tbe pathway swept.
O pure eyed bride!
O tender bride!
Two faces o'er a cradle bent:
Two hands above the bead were locked;
These pressed each other while they
These watched a life which love had sent.
O solemn hour!
O hidden power!
Two parents by the evening fire;
The red light fell about their knees.
On heads that rose by slow degrees
Like buds upon the lily spire.
O patient life!
O tender strife!
The two sat still together there;
The red light shone about their kacca.
But all tbe heads by slow degrees
Had gone and left the lonely pair.
O voyage fast!
O vanished past!
The red light shone about the floor
And made the space between tbem wide;
They drew their chairs up side by side.
Their pale cheeks joined, and said "Once
O past that is!
Klngsley and the Butterfly.
As everybody knows, Cbarles Kingsley
loved well "both man and bird aud beast."
Tbis feature in bis character was curiously
displayed one Sunday in church. He was
just about to enter the pulpit to preach bis
sermon, when all on a sudden he disap
peared from the view of the congregation.
What was amiss? It was soon seen, bow-
ever, that nothing serious had happened.
He bad only stooped in search of some
thing on the floor, which, when found, he
had taken to the vestry. And what was
this something, do you think? An injured
butterfly which was fluttering about on
the ground. Being unable to fly away
owing to its hurt, Kingsley was afraid it
might be trodden on, aud so he had inter
rupted the service of tbe church until he
had removed the wounded insect out of
barm's way. Loudon Tit-Bits.
A Kaffir Furrier'a.Work.
Some of the articles of dress made by
savage and barbarous peoples are some
times elegant in material aud beautiful in
workmanship. No furrier can do better
work than does the Kaffir kaross maker.
A large kaross is woru fur inward. If
made of several skins, the heads are in a
row along the upper margin. This is lnt
back and falls outward as a cape. Jackal
skin is prized as thick and soft. With rich
black mottlings. 1 hat of the meerkat is
also valued. Oue kaross of thirty-six skins
was sewed very neatly; each skin w:-s
pierced by a weaKn, yet, viewed on the

pieces of skin being "let iu." Great skill
is shown in selecting these pieces, as the
