THE SILENCE OF LOVE.
Oh, Lncxpresible aa sweet, Love takes my voice away. I cannot tell thee "when we meet What most I long to say. But hadst thou hearing in thy heart To know what beats in mine Then ehouldst than walk, where'er thou, art, In melodies divine. So warbling birds lift higher notes Than to our ears belong. The music fills their throbbing- throats, But silence steals the sang-. George E. 'Woocberry in Century. it THE TDEE IX PEEUs7! For two days the dcctorTs features . had worn an expression of gravity zs ' he bent over the bed of my sick friend, hut novr, as I watched him closely, the strong face relaxed, and as he raised his head I sew the light of satisfaction in his Mndly eyes. His hat, stick and gloves lay on the dressing case, and as he crossed the room to take them ho marked my look of eager inquiry, and, pausing abrupt ly, laid his hand on my shoulder. i "We're doing splendidly, famously, my dear boyr famously. If literature faOs you, come to me, and I will give you your credentials as a nurse. Flor ence Nightingale could not have done hotter. " "The worst is over then?" I asked. "Yes. I believe we can pull him through between us. " fie paused, and as he turned once more toward his pa tient his face grew grave again. "I think the crisis is passed," he said quietly. 'All that any mortal physician can do for him has been done. Nature alone must supply the only restorative he needs. He must sleep. I have just given him a sedative, and he ought soon to be under ts influence. Keep the light turned down, and do not allow him to talk. Sleep is imperative. He must have sleep." He stepped lightly to the dressing case, and as he raised his gloves a dust covered heap cf manuscripts caught his eye. He chuckled sof tJy and shook his head. "Odd people, you American?," he said, with a smile. "Is our poor litera ture eo in poverished that you must needs instill Yankee blood into its veins?" . I was looking at the pale face of poor Tom and did not reply. "Ah, web." said the cheery doctor as he appropriated his hat and stick and advancpd, with extended hand, "the fairy voices of the Bow bells are far reaching, and I hope that they will one day ring as merry changes for two Yan kee lads as they did for that fortunate young beggar, Dick Whittingron. Good night, my toy, good night. I'll see you in the morning. And now, remember" He put his finger to his lips, and a moment later he was gone. I closed the door gently and returned to the bedside of my friend. His eyes were closed,, and, believing that the sed ative had already begun its work, I tiptoed- to the gas jet and turned down the light. Then, seating myself before the grate, I revitalized the dying embers and put in two or three more pieces of coal. For several minutes all wss still, then I hcurd a movement cmccg the bedclothes and a few moments later the voice, of my sick roommate' - - - . "Hal." "Yes, Tom." "Has the doctor gene?" 'Yes, he left just now. You must go to sleep, old chap." There was another movement on the bed, then all was still again, and I had just begun mentally to congratulate the doctor on tho efac&cy of his prescription when I heard my name pronounced. "What is it, Tern?" I asked, a little impatiently. "What time is it?" "Half past 4." "In the afternoon?" "Yes." If What makes it so dark?' "It's the fcg. Pome now, old boy, you must be quiet. The doctor says y -i , must have sleep. The worst is over,, and five or six hours of rest will make you. ypur old self again." He did not reply at once, but at the expiration of two or three minutes ha asked: "What time is it in New Yarknow, Hal?" "You mnst stop it, Tom," I com manded, but immediately relenting X continued, "AbouG half past 12." A deep sigh broke the stillness tha$ ensued. It is Saturday," said Tom. "Satur day, isn't it? In six hours more the old crowd will be in the restaurant in 31a - lin's. I can see them all old Gaynor, George Leslie, Barrett and Bess." "Now, Tom" "Come here, old chap." I rose, and, going to the bed, I plaeed my fingers on my friend's lips. He took them in Jais wasted hand, and as he re moved them his grasp tightened, and hu smiled. 1 "All right, fiaL I!ll be quiet now. Goodnight." T returned to niy chair, and for ten minutes nothing save the ticking of the. plock broke the stillness of the room." Then there was once more an ominous movement on the bed. t's funny, isn't it, this difference in time;" he murmured. fiIa Chicagq ft is cn hour earlier still." There was a pause. What time is it in San Francisco, Hal?" 'Oh, I don't know, -Tom. About two hours earlier, I guess. Why won't you go to .sleep"' "That would make it about half past 9." He paused, but a few moments later I heard him muttering to-himself. "Confound it, old chap," I began. "I was just trying to figure it out,- ha went on. "It takes 24. hours for tho world to make a complete revolution. Where do they begin .to reckon the time anyway?" "On, I don't know. Let's see.

There is a screw loose somewhere. It can't be that" I concluded that arguing with the poor fellow would ba in vain, so I re turned to mv chair. "HaL" I did not respond. "What time is it in Peking?" I jumped up quicklv and went to the bed. "Now, see here, Tom, this sort of thing is utterly absurd. Your life is hanging by the merest thread. All you need is sleep. We have all done what we could, and now you will have to take a hand yourself. What the deuce have you to do with time or Peking now? Come, go to sleep. There's a good fellow." "I know I'm acting like an ass, old boy, but I can't get the infernal thing out of my head. If I could figure it out, I would bo all right, for I do feel a bit sleepy."

"Nell, run over the way and get a geography. Here, take this from door to door until you get what it calls for." I wrote a brief note explaining, the circumstances and got tho children off. Then I wect up stairs. One glanre at poor Tom gave me to understand that the dreaded fver had again asserted itself. His eyes were su pernatural ly bright, and as I entered the room his features woro a took of unrestrained anxiety. "Well," he asked irritably, "didn't you find out?" "Not yet, but I'll have some books here in a minute." In two or three minutes I heard the sound of rapid feoteteps on the stairs and hastened to the door. I met the grocer's wife. "I hurried as fast as I could," she gasped. "I saw Neil, and and here is the book. Poor boy! Shall I go in?" X seized the beck and, perceiving that it was a ready reckoner, I returned it forthwith to its owner. Other steps were now heard oij the sfcaiis, and in a few minutes the narrow hallway and even the room itself was thronged with sympathetic neighbors, who had placed themselves and their meager libraries at my service. AIL however, failed to contribute any inr formation which would meet the exact ing demands of the invalid- The floor was strewn with all sorts q literature, yarying from toy picture books, con taining pictures of Chinamen, to tech nical works on navigation and house hold ecouomy, but still the feeble voice which emanated from the bed inspired me to clarror for more. I enrsed the inherent ignorance of the Anglo-Saxon race. I railed, stormed, perspired and trembled for the safety cf my friend. But all was cf no avaiL Finally I heard a murmur hi the halL The doctor had come. Leaping forward I seized him by the lapel of bis coat. "What is the time in Peking?" Tcried in hiscar. "What is- the time in Peking?" de manded Mrs. Slemmer, barring his way to the bed. "How the devil should I know?" ex-r claimed the astonished doctor, as he made his way through the group that surrounded his patient. "Here it isl Here it is!" shouted $ voice in the hall, and an old, white haired gentleman with a book in his hand was pushed by a dozen eager hands into the room. The volume was opened, and the de sired informaricu was before my eyes. "At last!" I excluimed. "Here, doc tor, I have it. It is" "Hush!" said a warning voice. A moment later the hand of the Eng lish physician was laid gently on my shoulder. , "He knows, my boy. He knows." Exchange. The Pearl.

Though known earlier, it was not generally in: eluded am"ug the gem treasures of roy? alty even as late as the seventh century. The modern cutting of diamonds in reg ular facets was invented as recently aa 1456. Indeed it is quite probable that the pearl was the first gem known and treasured by prehistoric man since the search for feed must have been the first occupation of the earliest of the race, and the- shining pearl would thus have been discovered in river mussels if not in marine oysters. Certain it is that the Old Testament and the ancient written histories allude to pearls and that re moter evidence is found in the tombs and excavated cities of still earlier eras.

Benne said to her husband. She was a small brunette, thin and aggressive, who strongly reminded one of little pet dogs who received visitors by snapping and snarling at their heels aa scon as the front door is opened. Mr. Benne was a his, jolly dry goods merchant, and he watched his spouse ruefully as she unhooked a heavy cloth cape from the rack in the halL He had hoped against hope that for once she would forget to lumber his bicycle with that clumsy old cloak, it was such a bore. "It looks like rain, " the little wom an continued, "and I am not going to allow you to come back drenched to the skin, much as it would, please you.

Not that it would make much difference to you, but I should prefer suicide to beg gary." While speaking with a fluency which would have done credit to a politician on a stumping tour, she rolled the cape into a tight bundle, tied a bit of string around it, and there it was, ready to be fastened on the handle of his wheel. "In your way?" she exclaimed in shrill repetition. "Well, Iwould really like to know why? Oh, I see, it is not the swell thing,, and yon. are afraid that the ladies you pass on the road will think you are carrying a bundle. Is that it? If you must know my mind, I think I am a perfect idiot to allow you so much freedom. How do I know where you go or what you do? You tell me any story you like when you come back, and it is false just as likely as not" Renne bowed his head patiently to the storm, for well he knew that one word, one timid protest, would exasper ate his wife into further parley, and the discussion would drag on indefinitely, but as today she seemed rather more amiable than usual ho held his tongue. "See that it does not touch the wheel or get soiled," she went on. "If you use it, roll it up wrong side out again before replacing itr and do not lose the erring as you did last time. What are you looking at? I really think you might have the civility to listen to me when I speak to you." Renne was contemplating with forced calm the serene blue sky and trying to catch the placidity shining in its azure depths. "Please do not kiss me gcodby. I am pot to be fooled and cajoled so easily. What are you waiting for?" And, turn ing toward her husband, she saw him making meet gestures of poverty. "No moneyl Of course not Well, here are 5 francs. I shall require an exact ac count of your expenses, though, and please look at the change. You are so apt to take odds and ends of coin which are difficult to pass. Now go. Try to avoid drinking while you are warm and keep out of drafts." Mr. Renne fucked the money into hia waistcoat pocket, kissed his wife grave ly for he did not dare to appear too gay, as she would have deeply resented any manifestation of joviality and started down the stairs in search of his bicycle with the necessary amount of modera-: tion and decorum which he knew best suited Mme. Renne. As he fastened the cloak paref ully by a strap to the bicycle he felt that sharp eyes were fixed upon him from windows above, and as he pedaled away he carried the look with him, -like the famous Parthian arrow of bygone days, stuck in his- back. When once well out into the open country, he expanded his lungs and took in great breaths of air, while the blood rushed to bis face and his eyes almost Etarted from their sockets. Then, very slowly he exhaled it all until he grew pale from could it be relief? Tho sun, high in the heavens, shed its genial rays full upon him as heped aled frantically along the highway, with arms akimbo, doubled nearly in two over his handles and wild with de light The smooth white road unraveled before him like a ball of twine, the hori zon appeared to advance toward him ii friendly welcome, and the' bushes and trees, which looked like tiny specks in the distance, grew steadily, as if by magic, under his gaze and assumed mass ive and stately proportions. To Mr. Renne the landscape seemed to be runt ning the other way ; clumps cf wood and bracken, little houses, elm trees, fields, and milestones melted away before him like a bit cf sugar. He whistled gayly as his bicycle devoured space, scorching; down the hills, attacking the up grades with easy assurance, while pn a level no bird would have entered into comper titicn. It was simply glorious. Instead at crushing his daily cares and trials un-? der his feet he rede lightly over them, and, leaving them far behind, looked back at them over his shoulder scornful ly, as if they were lost forever and as though it would be a useless effort on their part to attempt to catch up with him again.

While he was given over to his savage and all but animal enjoyment the hypocritical hit of cord snapped in two, and oft flew the cape like a streak of light, unnoticed by his eye. which at the time was eager ly scanning a signpost. Nearly a mile behind him the cloak, black and inani mate, lay in the middle of the road, while the bicycle, lighter than before, tore deliriously on its winged way. His blissful igr orancG was short lived, however, and the awakening was most cruel, for,, as he sat under the awning of a friendly restaurant, rapturously sip ping sauteme and. selters and gazing with dreamy eyes beaming with love and pride at his wheel,, which leaned gracefully against a tree in front of him, a premonition seized him. What was missing? And with a cry he sprang to his feet. It was the cape. An instan taneous change passed over- Renne's world ; the wine soured; a sharp wind arose which ruffled his hair and temper ; every old crack and blister showed out plainly on the varnished parts of his bicycle, and even the rubber tire looked miserable, nctchy and worn. Renne's heart turned sick as he sat lost in dejected reflection. All the en ergy and strength of mind which he brought so courageously into play while earning his daily bread seemed to melt away and disappear before- the disas trous less of the cape. As he sat with his head buried in his hands he pictured his return and reception by Mme. Renne. It would not take her half a second to discover his misfortune, he thought, and well he knew what scenes would ensue tears, lamentations, re proaches, sulks and outbursts of rage, in which the little vixen fairly reveled in her moments of uncontrolled fury. Gracious heavens I Seized with a chill, he hurriedly paid his bill at the restau rant, and, jumping on his pcor old hicy cle, which had beaten the record com ing, he started homeward. One wagon passed him after the other first a butch er's cart, next an old fat woman driv ing a donkey, then a gypsy wagon, with an impudent long haired rascal who stared mockingly but uneasily after him. Renne felt very much inclined to question him about his cape, but a feel ing of reticence withheld him, for he strongly suspected that the man had found it, and that it lay hidden some where under the lot cf quarreling, cry ing rats which filled the wngcu back of himr so Le pedaled on hopefully, be lieving that he might yet find it on the road justwhere it had fallen. And as he watched and thought it over his temper rose scathing ai.d sarcastic. A cloak, forscoth, with a summer sun shining overhead. It was hot enough to boil eggs. Oh, to the devil with the thing! He hoped that it was lest forever. What did he care? But suddenly the mccking look in the tramp's eyes came back to him. Of course the fellow had found and taken his cape. Renne felt sure of it now. What could he do about it, though follow him and search hiswag on? fcuppose, after all, the man had never seen it how like a fcol he wculd lookl And so, little by little, his anger sub sided, and the ridiculous side of the af fair presented itself to his mind so forci bly that he felt like screaming with laughter. Bis wife appeared before him in a different light altogether. She was no longer a being to Le dreaded, but to bo rioicukd, and he rendered slowly over a summary vengeance to be admin istered upen the tormentor who had been oppressing him for years. He would bear no more of her petty persecutions. Neither would he drag ccats and capes about on his bicycle through the sum mer 'heat and dust, and they might aa well understand each ether fcr once. But as he pedaled along different con siderations suggested themselves to his excited imagination. The cloak was new and had cost 9 francs. It was stu pid of him to huve lest it. And if his wife had urged cay, forced him to carry it, it was mere ficni love than hate.

A reporter who had sought at a fire engine house information on a point concerning- which the driver could best inform him stood talking with the driver by the stall of one of the horses. The horse was secured by a tie strap commonly used in the department. One end of the tie strap is made fast by a staple driven into the side of the stall, while the other end is passed through the throat latch cf the horse's bridle and held on a pin that rises in a little recess in the side cf the stalL By means of a simple mechanical contrivance the pin is pulled down at the first stroke of the gong when an alarm ia sounded, the tie strap is released, and the horse is set free. As the driver and the reporter talked, the horse, in a friendly sort of way, bent his head dewn toward the driver. Suddenly an alarm was SGunded, and the horse was transformed, and like wise the driver. The horse's head went up, and he was alert in every fiber. At the first stroke the pin had dropped, and the horse was free. With a single bound he cleared the stall and made for his place by the engine, with the driver be side him. The other two horses of tho team this was a three horse team were clattering forward at the same moment. At the front of the house men were sliding down poles like lightning. There were a few sharp, quick; snap ping sounds, as the men already there snapped the collars together around the horses' necks, and over it all the boom ing of the gong. In all the newer firehouses of the city the stalls of the horses arc placed as nearly as possible abreast of the engine, so that the horses shall have the shortest possible distance to go. In some of the older houses, in which there is less room, the stalls are at the fear. That is where they were in this house. Surprised a little, the reporter had lost a second or two in getting to the front. When he got there, he saw the driver in his seat holding the lines over the team ready to drive out and waiting only for the last stroke on the gong. All fire teams are hooked up on every alarm. On first alarm they go out only to fires within their own district. This alarm was for a fire outside the district. Unhooked, tha horses trotted back to their stalls. Descending from his seat, the driver took up the interrupted con versation just as if nothing had hap sausd. New York Ess. o Embarrassment. "Is it true that Pidger is financially em barrassed?"

The sufferer from catarrh, perhaps, meets with more discouragement in seeking a cure than, those afflicted with ail other ailments. After ex hausting the skill of the, best physi cians, and inhaling various mixtures, paying out large sums for doctors' fees and medicines, he finds himself either as bad off as at first or a. great deal worse. The cause of this is easily explained. The disease is in. the blood, and only a real blood remedj can possibly have any effect upon it. The doctors being unable, with their stereotyped reme dies of potash and mercury, to cure diseases of the blood, direct their efforts toward treating the symp toms of the disease, and ignoring its cause. The inhaling of various sprays, and use of washes, etc., is but a. su perficial and temporary treatment, and cannot possibly effect a cure. Mrs. Josephint; Polhux.
