I sprang to the saddle; Seter, had my pet machine seemed ao light and responsive. I started onward-n-ot homeward. 'Why? I cannot tell youJ I was still dazed by the crash; my ap-j tiona were merely automatic I passed over the dusky, huddled mass at the' end of the passage; it offered no rsist-J ance. J rode on through the solid rock, of the terminal wall with no more ob-i struction than when a sunbeafo. passes inrougn a piate oi glass. ' And then at last I understood.

Yet I pierced, it likeiai vapor; to me it was less than air-tor I felt not a breath upon my face. At length I had passed far below all the strata known to the geologist) deep! into the region of igneous rock; Which I had noted, but with strange lack ofi interest, was seamed . with Jagged, gleaming veins of every metal, and bracked with many a sparkling gem-i encrusted fissure. Then all this pon-j derous substance seemed to melt away,' and a broad, cavernous plain opened; before me. Its roof was lost' in gloom end distance; its floor was ashen; in' all its T&st expanse there was no trace of color. , , , Then I cried out but my voice was' as soundless as a thought "1 is There is, indeed, an underworld of, ghosts, and the men of old were, not, deluded.

"Wejl done.'barked Anubisi close by my side. . And now we.rolled through the por tals of a 'mighty temple. Its huge pylons were lifted up 'like-mountains uncler the skyless gloom; no such tre mendous masonry was ever reared at Karnak or Memphis. Then came a wil derness of painted columns each one like a castle tower and amid them colossal figures, with faces veiled in the sombre shades that hung like a ounopy in the upper 'spaces. The wav seemed like the dim, unending avenues oi a cream, that still lead 6n and are still the same; but at length I was In the miaet or a vast chamber; It opened amid the maze of columns like a forest glade. rTe - light that v illumined 11 was ruddy as the. morning sky, but; whence It was reflected I could not' distinguish; there was neither lamp nor torch. The whole place, was vibrant with a ravishing but soul-quelling mel-ody-aiTf Wailing echo, of far-off agony, no louder ,thap. a whisper. The hall seemed empty, but as I glided slowly forward it was suddenly full of figures,-' gigantio, monstrous, towering on, every! side. It was, in verity the judgment nan oi jjeatn. Far before me sat Osiris, enthroned more huge than rocky Memnon, with scourge and scepter. Beside him quiv - i i . . , . . . -. creu Me ureau scales m Which are weighed the eouls of men. His look was not unkindly, yet my heart auaked Deneath it. Then out of the whispering, moaning melody there rose a clang of accusing voices, naming my every fault, both deed and thought, forcrotten or remem bered. I burned with shame, for I knew that, all was true. And the face of Osiris grew 'stern as I made no an swer, but still his look was full of pity ing kindness. Then came a voice- that was like the hiss of an angry serpent. "He is false," it cried, "false to his nHoKhWI Inpp " NOT JUDGE ME. And the brow of Oeiris darkened in wrath; the light of pardon faded from his awful eyes; his scourge was lifted. I had sunk upon my knees in my deep humiliatiop, but now, with su preme effort, I sprang tip and strode toward the throne. "The charge is false," I cried. "Never was I untrue to Her. .-And she her self, Osiris, shall be my judge; in this thou shalt not judge me." . . , As I spoke 'these worda the features of Osiris Softened. They slowly melted into a dream of beauty and sweetness. Itf was no longef Osiris; it was the face of my beloved. She was bending over me. with tearful eves. f . .

Ella Wheeler Wilcox, In Atlanta Consti tution. A RENTED SUMMER COW. A CITY MAN'S EXPERIMENT WITH AN AGRICULTURAL CONDITION. E CAME to the country, as usual, the , 1st of June," said the man -who' hired the cow. "The boy had gotten through his examinations with honor he takes after me in his fondness for books and it began to get warm in the city, so we started, as usual, and landed, as usual, in the d-ea old place. " 'Jonathan,' said my wife to me at the tea table that night, 'we must have a cow.' "Yes, I groaned, "and I hate the bother of getting her. That isn't the meanest part of it, either. The cow mar ket is always . hulled when I want to buy in the spring, and beared when I want to sell in the fall.' . " 'Yes,' said my wife, thoughtfully, 'it doesn't seem as though a cow could deteriorate so much in four months.' " 'It's the company she keeps,' I an swered. Our hired men would de moralise Satan. . 'How much did you pay for that Ilolstein last year? 'Sixty dollars, and I was 'mijrhty glad, to get ten for her m September.' 'rather, said John, 'why don't you rent a cow?' 'Bright boy, said I. , 'I will and I did.. I interviewed Farmer Easkins on the subject first. . s 'Well,' said he, 'I never did rent out a cow, and I don't know as I ever heard of such a thing, but, seeing it's you ' JNo. you don't, said I. 'I'm not go ing to have any of that nonsense. You just forget it's me and make believe it's your son Henry.' " 'Pshaw,' said the old man, 'I wouldn't rent him the north side of a barn to store apples on, or he'd skin my eye teeth for me. If you re groins: to be him, it's no use talking to you," and he went off. Well, I looked high and low. and at last J. founds a cow and rented her. A sweet thing she was, Jersey, pretty as a picture, and, ye turtles of Amsterdam! how she could sro! I've seen her feed ing quietly in the pasture at SO minutes to nine, and looking as innocent as a calf, and at 25 minutes of ten she was two miles away in John Slocum's corn. The first thing after breakfast I would call up the coachman. Lloyd, Is the cow all right?' I would ask. k , . u 'Yes, sir,' he would reply. j ' "Keep your eye on her, Lloyd, I aon t want any complaints to-day." '"All right, sir, I will, sir.' , , "Half an hour after a farmer would valk up to the front gate driving a cow before him. He'd hajt end look up at me with a little twinkle In his eye. " Be this your critter, Mr. Jones?' " 'It looks like hjr,' I'd say, cautious ly. 'But I think ours Is ii the pas ture.' " 'Well, I wish you'd find out. If 'taln't yours I've got id go to Jim Banks' With her.' v "I would call up Llovd and ask: Ts the cow in the pasture, Lloyd?' " 'Well, eir, she was till ten minutes ftgo, when I took iy eye" off her, and Went to washing tfie carriage with it, ' i " 'See if she's there now.' ' . "Lloyd would grin. 1 " That she ain't, sir. That's her by the post there.' " 'How do you know that's our cow?' " 'I know her, sir. ' That's her sure, Ithe little devil.' I "Then I'd pay damages and we'd put p the cow. And the same scene would be enacted with a different farmer the next day. "The earn that cow. ate. the meadows she trampled down, the gardens she browsed over, and the miles she walked were, and are still, a source of inex haustible wonder to- me. he climbed Ithe hills into Nod, she roamed down Chicken street, she waded into the res ervoir, she mounted Olmstead hill, where, with a glass, we descried her out lined against the sky en9 sent Lloyd to rescue her. whether it was that her prfd revolted at Vkxxg rented, not owned, or Whether he took a mis chievous delight In tormenting us be cause we nailed from, thft city do no Know.

One day the cow had disappeared as usual, and Lloyd in consequence of my repealed commands, expressed with more fervor than devoutness. had driven down to the station and then started off on his daily hunt. It was. successful, in fact so successful thai he appeared driving ine cow just as J gotoir the train. iiello, Lloyd, 1 cried. Uot the cow?' , t '"Yes, sir.' 'See here, it will take vou half an hour to drive her home. Fasten her to the back of the wagon and jump In j-auyo. looKea aouDUUl. 'Do vou xninK sne'll go that way, sir? ""Cio? Of course she'll ero. Td like to see ier help herself if she's tied to the back axle of this wagron. with the horse trottingin front. Get a rope from tne postmaster and come on. J-'ioyd got a rope and fastened it around the cow's horns. Then he looked up at me. . - uon t you think, sir. it would he better if you held the end of the rope? -"v-" on; uiuiri line 11 unu. aciea- Daa you could let go.

Tie her to the axle and get in.' , 'So Lloyd made her fast to the back axle and got in and we started., The nexi moment there was a bellow of fright and indignation, an infuriated cow climbing into the back end of the wagon, and I found mvself over in the meadow beside the road without know ing how I got there. Then the cow stood on her hind legs. Then she stood on her fore legs. Then she braced herself, all four feet wide apart, and tugfeTv at the rope with might and main, "len she tried to toss the wagon and gave it a fine tip. sending Lloy'd half way over on the horse's back. CLIMBING INTO THE BACK END OF THE WAGON. Then she tried to run around and catch the horse, who was backing and plune- ing in fear. Then she climbed into the wagon again. Then she did everything she had done before all at once. 'I cannot frive the details of what followed. I only know that I had a fleeting vision of a Ferris wheel, small, but very active, a conglomerate of horse and cow and wagon, whose spokes flew (around with inconceivable rapidity and ear-splitting crackinprs till sud denly there came burst of fragments, ana then an lmnieasureable silence, and I lay back on the grass in a dead faint. . .. . . ., " 'Sakes alive. Mr. Jones.' the local butcher was saying- when I came to. 'I wouldn't give you two shillings for that there cow. No, sir, I'd lose money on her if I dad. ' Why, she's nothing but mincemeat, that cow ain't, nothing but mincemeat. And she s so mixed' up with wagon snokes that Til have to Dut her five times through the grinder or people'll think I've taken to giving toothpicks along with their bologna.' iou re welcome to the cow.' said I. feebly, as I climbed into a kindly neigh bor's wagon, 'but don't you bring me any of your bologna.'

Washington Democrat. ' .: Caa't Drown in Tl:ls Elt. An Austrian named Dr, Friodrich Mintz has succeeded in inventing a swimming dress which proves to be the surest safeguard against drowning or. record. Dr. Mintz demonstrates his in genious discovery to which he has given the name of Neptune at the Vienna Diana baihs recently. The cos tume is made entirely out of the fur of the reindeer, the hairs of which .beini hollow, enable the animal to float with out making the slightest, physical ex ertion, liy way of experiment a boy of six. lirnofant of swimming, wns r-lntl!,. n the costume and sprang into the wa ter, when he institutly arose and re gained afloat. What a man attains to seems for a little time to be the high est rune in the ladder, and dur ing- tkat biief oe- riod he mav be content, but when he discovers that there are other runtrs, still hijrher up, ambition crives birth to discontent. and he begins once more to climb. To climb is reallv man's chief end. It isn't in attainment, but in work, that man finds his real happiness, conse quently it is not strance that we find men working until they break, down when there is no real necessity for it. If men only knew it. thev could work to almost any extent on through middle life and into old age, if they would only take a little common sense care of their'health. The trouble is that thev do not take the lit tle stitches here and there that are neces sary to preserve health. They pay no at tention to the signs of on-coming ill-health. A little biliousness, a little indigestion, a little loss of sleep and appetite, a little nervousness, a little headache, a little shakiness in the morning, and a little dull ness all day, a little this and a little that all these little things they neglect. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery makes the appetite keen, digestion and assimila tion perfect, the liver active, the blood pure and the nerves steady. It is the great blood-maker and flesh-builder. It is the great liver invigorator and nerve tonic It fits a man to work and work and work. Medicine dealers sell it and have nothing else "just as good." . I was a sufferer five or six vears from indi gestion.": writes B. F. Holmes, of Gaflney, Spartanburg Co., S.
