TItUE HEROISM.
Eleanore Gray and Dora Alton were
great friends, though two more diasim.
ilar in every way it would be hard to
and.
For, while Eleanore was tall, dark,
and brilliantly colored, Dora was child
ishly slight, with a pale, lily-fair skin;
aud while Eleanorn was vivacious and
daring, Dora was shy and quiet.
And, strange to say, the one you
would deem least fitted to cope with
the world whs the one whom circuui.
stances had compelled to do so from
her earliest youth.
The acquaintance between the two
girls began at school; and when Elea
nore, leavirg .school days behind for
ever, came to her beautiful hooiv, at
her urgent solicitation, Dora, whom
she had grown to love as tenderly as a
sister, accompanied her.
The lirst mouth of vacation had pass
ed, and the second had been entered
upon, and Dora sighs as she thinks
how very soon the time will have flown
and this delightful experience that has
come to her like an oais in the monot
onous desert of her life will have end
ed. And yet the roses of pleasure have
not been entirely without the thorns
that always accompany them.
Five weeks do not constitute a great
portion of time; but in them much may
happen, and they have sulliced to im
plant in Dora's gentle heart a some
thing as strong as she knows it is hope
less. By the terms of the deceased Mr.
Gray's will, his friend, Mark Eldridge,
a man many years younger than him
self, but possessing his utmost confi
dence, was left executor of his large
fortune and guardian to his daughter.
Thus it is that Gray Cottage fre
quently sees Mr. Eldridge's genial hand
some fi.ce; and thus it is also that, in
listening to his fluent conversation,
which opens before her broad vistas of
knowledge as well as entertainment.
Dora bus come to think that not in all
the world is another so wise and good,
as worthy of a maiden's love.
But not a hint of the truth does she
suffer to escape, for she imagines that
she has read a secret, and she is not
surprised.
"She is so beautiful and intelligent,
it is no wonder that he loves her," she
muses, as she watches with feeling of
mingled admiration, tenderness, and
pain the guardian of his lovely ward.
The days go by until one comes which
is long remembered.
It has been a stormy afternoon, and
with the gathering darkneas the thun
der begins to mutter menacingly.
Sweetbriar Cottage, as Eleanore'a
pleasant home is called, is situated up
on a slight elevation, whose foot is
washed by a narrow stream between
which and terra llrma runs the rail
way. From their position in the bow- win
dow, where they are watching with
fascinated eyes the cloud-phantasy of
gloom rent by lurid light which the
storm presents to their vision, the girls
can see the line up and down for some
way.
Suddenly a tremendous crash startles
them to their feet, and at the same
instant a lightning flash illumines
the whole sky and surrounding ob
jects. Eleanor's face grows very pale as she
grasps her companion's arm, and points
down upon the line.
"Dora, the great elm at the foot of
the terrace has been struck.
"See, it has fallen across the line.
"The seven o'clock express will be
due in half an hour.
"Dora, they will be wrecked, for the
curve will prevent them seeing the
danger before it is too late."
Dura looks and trembles.
"Can we do nothing, Eleanore?" she
asks.
'No; for the nearest telegraph sta
tion is acress the river, and there is no
other for five miles."
'We crossed the river yesterday,
Eleanore."
"Can we not do it now r I am go
ing to try."
Eleanore gazed at her in surprise
"Dora Alton, you are crazy to think
of such a thing.
"To cross upon the stepping-stones
in fair weather is quite a different
thinir to attempt in such a storm as
this.
"The water is very deep.
A alnalfl fala aten. and your life
would pay the forfeit."
"Nevertheless I shall try.
"I know the way, and I may be the
means f saving hundreds or my iei
low-creatures fiom a horrible fate.
"Do not try to persuade me, Eleanore;
I must go.
' 'And though Eleanore redoubled her
terrified remonstrances. Dora went
about her preparations firmly with a
look of determination upon her young
face that never faltered.
At last she was ready, and Eleanor
strained her small water-proof-clad rig
ure close to her heart.
"Heaven protect you and keep you, my
darling, she said solemnly.
"You go for duty's sake to brave a
danger that, fearless as I have always
A mvself to be. I would never
dare attempt.
"I love life too well to fac what seems
certain deaths nm
"Ah, I, loo, love life," Dora said, as
she disengaged herself from her friend s
clinging iirms, "but something draws
me ou."
"Though I knew I 'OUia never i-
turn, I should .
Out in the storm ana a.ir.ur
hurries. , .
The winds beat against ner, now
pushing her back, now urging ner ioi
ward, until at length she stands upon
ia l.Hnir nf Hi little river that ripples
so innocently and cheerily along under
a sunny sky, but whose waves now are
leaping aud tossing their foam-crests
like mad things.
The stepping-stones, which but yes-
v crossed, are betore
her, and Dora begins her perilous jour
ney. 'Come back! Dora, Dora, come
back!" calls Eleanor's voice from uie
terrace above.
But she does not heed.
Steadilv she iroes onward, but, oh, so
slowly! oftentimes slipping, and on the
very edge of falling into the treacner-
ous water, whose inky blackness only
seems the denser when, for a few sec
onds, the glare of the lightning shows
her what progress sue is making.
She has gained the center or uie
stream.
Her slight form is tiembling with
the combined effect of the cold, which
strikes through her dripping garments,
and the bodily exertions she has been
compelled to make to keep her footing
upon the slippery rocks.
Will she be able to re ach tne ouier
side?
Bravely she struggles on, and at
length ihe goal is reached, and her feet
touch the other shore.
A short while later the telegraph op
erator, leaning idly back in his chair in
his warm oiflce, is startled by the en
trance of a small, dripping figure, look
ing, with its dishevelled hair and pal
lid face, like a visitant from some
ghostly sphere.
"A tree has fallen across the line op
posite Miss Gray's cottage.
Telegraph for the seven o clock ex
press to stop."
Then, her mission accomplished,
the brave heart stops beating, and
Dora sinks unconscious to the tlcor.
Four weeks have gone by weeks of
the most intense anxiety; for all that
time Dora had laid between life and
death.
But at last the shadows have lifted,
and out once more into health's sun
shine she has emerged, to the heartfelt
oy of the friends who have prayed
tor her recovery incessantly, even
when they feared their prayers would
be of no avail.
It is a bright, pleasant day, though
somewhat chill, and in Eleanore's cosy
sitting-room, in an easy chair, near the
cheery tire, Dora is seated.
She looks very lovely, for the tire-
glow has lent a delicate color to her
pale cheeks, and made into a aureole
of gold the short waves of hair that
cluster about her forehead.
The door gently opens, and a roice
ays, "iiay l come in r
It is Mr. Eldridge. and it is the nrst
time since her illness that Dora has
met him.
The delicate color deepens as ske re
signs her hand to his clasp, and an
swers his words of greeting. ;
They chat for a while; and then, to
Dora's great surprise, she learns what
she has not known before, that among
those who to her brave deed twed
their safety from death was her friend's
guardian.
"I asked Eleanore not to tell you,"
he says: "for I wished to thank you
myself, and at the same time to ask
you a question most momentoui to
me.
"It is this,
"Dora, will you make the life you
have saved more precious by lajing
that dear hand on mine, and sajing
that you will be my wife?
"Ah, little onel my heart went out
to you the first time that we met; but
I little knew to what a strength my
passion had grown until the dark hour
came when I feared that death was
about to snatch you from me.
"Dora what is my answer to be ?
'And I always thought it was Elean
ore you cared for," Dora says, as, a
little later, she sits with a happy face,
and her little hand tightly clasped in
her lover s.
So 1 do care for Eleanore very
much; but it is Dora my heroic darling
that I wish for my wife the guar
dian angel of my heart and my homer
is his answer.
"I am more pleased than I can ex
press," is Eleanore's enthusiastic excla
mation, when the blissful secret is con
fided to her.
"I do not believe that in all the uni
verse there is anyone nobler than my
guardian; and, Dora darling, you are
well mated.for nobility and heroism are
kindred qualities, and after what has
passed you can certainly never call
yourself a coward!"
Dora stopped ner mouiu witn a kiss.
Swiss Watches. No other indus
try in the world has such a fixed sys
tem for regulating its work as the
Swiss watch manufacturers. About
sixty different masters are occupied
with the manufacture of the different
parts of each single watch, in such a
way that each workman manufactures,
throughont the year, the same pieces,
as, for example, the hands, or certain
wheels, etc.. and by, this means the
workmen attain a peculiar ability in
their special branch. Jn a like man
ner they have metamorphosed their
simple and almost primitive tools into
most complicated machinery, and their
ability to perform work is enormous,
both as to quality and quantity. They
work generally at home, with the help
ofmerabeis of their family, and then
sell the finished component parts to
the big manufacture! s, under whose
superintendence (he watch is complet
ed. Although these different parts are
procured from different shops, they
nevertheless exactly fit together, be
cause they are made after one and the
same number, measure, and rule. The
workmen earn 5 francs, 15 centimes
per day, according to the branch they
are engaged in and to the run of the
business, and in eearly every house oi
the region where watches are made
may be found a special working shop.
Lane manufactories are not frequent;
the largest are era ploy td in preparing
the rougher metal works, such as the
turning of the screws, etc. The Swiss
watch industry occupies at' present
about 70,000 persons.
THE GREAT FINERIES.
What Influence They Have Had on
the Country's Progress An In
teresting Artiole.
hloaito Cor. I. Y. Tribune.
Of the rather more than 2,000,000,
000 feet of white pine lumber that
yearly reaches the docks and yards of
Chicago, nearly all comes from the
western half of Michigan, the northern
peninsula of the same State and the
Green Bay districts of Eastern Wis
consin. Of the total amount, as much
as 1,200,000,000 is derived from a
dozen places along the eastern shore
of Lake Michigan. Muskegon alone
in 1881 fumisted 491,824,000 feet,
aud 25,715,000 shingles, while Manis
tee sent forward 151,130,000 feet of
lumber, and 357,000,493 shingles, the
latter place being the greatest shingle
manufacturing place on that shoro.
The chief district of lumber manu
facture on the upper peninsula is at
the mouth of the Menominee lliver,
which empties into Green Bay arid
divides the States of Michigan and
Wisconsin. The mills are located at
Menominee.in Michigan, and Marinette,
Wisconsin. A large proportion of
the lumber stock that goes to make
up the residue of Chicago's 2,000,-
000,000 feet is produced at
these two joints. The Menominee
district in 1881 furnished 265,917.000
feet of lumber, and this year it is
thought the amount will reach over
300,000,000 feet The other Green
Bay and Upper Peninsula ports of im
portance in 1881 shipped as follows:
Peslitigo, 52,200,000; Ford River. 25,
724,000; Escanaba, 5,030,000; Oconto,
7.210,000. Of Saginaw lumber in 1881
37,573,000 feet were received but it
is probable that much more will have
arrived at the close of the present sea
son, on account of the unusual reach
ing about after stocks thi3 year. Al
pena, on the Huron shore, in 1881 sup
plied Chicago with 9,439,000 feet, and
more than that will arrive from that
port this year. Some is furnished from
other Lake Huron points. Latterly
the Lake Superior region has produced
considerable lumber, most of which
has reached the Chicago market, the
arrivals from Ashland in 1881 amount
ing to 20.995,000 feet, sud from Onto
nagon to 1,300,000. The lumber in
dustry of that section is being greatly
developed, and the time will soon come
when the output along the south shore
of the great lake will swell the yearly
total to 250,000,000, but a large part
of it will no doubt go to supply the
markets of the new Northwest by way
of Duluth and the three Northern Pa
cific railroads.
It is impossible to estimate the in
fluence the pine of Michigan aud Wis
consin has had in the development of
the northwest and of the entire coun
try. An important factor in this great
agency is the fact that a water way ex
isted between the foreits and the
prairies. White pine is a light and
portable timber, eminently adapted to
the wants of new settlers, easily work
ed by partly skilled labor. It has fur
nished a material for the building of
homee, the improvement of farms, the
sudden growth of cities and villages,
and by its means an empire has been
created, as it were, in a day. Compar
ison is the most conclusive argument;
and if one compares white pine with
the yellow or pitch variety of the south,
it will be seen that if the northwest
had been dependent upon the weighty
and hardly worked pine of the southern
sections of the country, the progress of
the prairie states would have dragged
far behind its present advanced condi
tion. Even to this day, when railroad
facilities from south to north are quite
ample, the weight of yellow pine
amounts to almost an embargo on ship
ments to the northwest, though strenu
ous efforts are being made to overcome
this difficulty by cheaper freights.
The estimate placed on the standing
pine af the North we&t by the Federal
census forestry bulletins, however
much they may be criticised.has served
to awaken much interest in the present
and prospective pine supply. Ten years
ago it was claimed in the Saginaw Val
ley that the available pine in that sec
tion would be used up in ten yeais;
yet the yearly product since then has
steadily increased, and last year the
output was greater than ever before.
The same is true of the Lake Michigan
districts. This at first blush seems an
inconsistent proposition, but being bet
ter understood, it appears more teason
able. When the first estimates of Mich
igan pine were made, the operators
took into account only such timber as
was accessible to the streams, and was
of certain proportions. For instance,
time was when a pine less than four
teen inches in diameter was never cut.
Now, such has become the insatiable
demand that trees no more than eight
inches in diameter are sacrificed to the
greed of the lumbermen; and it is a
common joke among tho red-shirted
brigade that sawed sticks 6x0, are often
seen with all four corners "waney." In
the early days of the industry Michigan
lumlH.'rmen penetrated the forests no
further than would make a short
haul necessary to bring the sticks to
stream. After timber became scarce on
short hauls, long hauls were undertak
en. At length operations had become
so thorough that teams could no longer
bring the logs to bank, and there was
a pause and a consideration of further
appliances. At each stage of denuda
tion the pine was said to be exhausted.
Estimates of standing pine were al
ways made with reference to the oper
ator's ideas of what constituted avail
able timber, both as to size and distance
from water. When lumber was cheap
it wa?, of course, impossible to put too
much expense into logging. The cost
of stumpage came in for consideration.
At first it was worth nothing but the
value of the land on which the trees
grew, which was obtainable at Govern
ment price. In process of time, as the
demand for lumber increased, stump-
age began to rise in value, and passed
through the scale from 25 cents a
thousand to its present average Mich
igan price of 4.50; that is, the trees
are wortn ttiat mucn a thousand as
they stand on the stump, or two-thirds
the average price of sawed lumber
fifteen years ago. Stumpage in Mich
igan is now often sold at $5, $6 and $7
a thousand, according to quality and
accessibility.
Recent estimates of the quantity and
value of standing pine have become
very different from what they were ten
or twelve years ago. Now estimates
are made as to quantity on a basis of
eight inches in diameter and upward.
and all the standing pine is reckoned.
be it never so far from stream or lake
side. The demand for lumber lias
wrought the change in regard to size.
and the new method of logging by pul
aim iron rauroaa nas brought the re
motest pine within reach of mills ami
market.
In the earlier days of the lumber in
dustry of the north snow was relied up
on for moving logs from the stump to
the stream or lake, and is still to a
large extent. But in Michigan the de
maud for raw material to feed the mills
has become so urgent that snow and
frost are elements too fickle to base a
year's operations uon. In the old
days the loggers operated near streams,
had an investment of a limited capital,
were supplying a rather profitless de
mand, and did the best they could with
ice and snow. In open winters they
brooked the loss of idle men and teams
and unfulfilled contracts as best they
could. Latterly lumbering has become
a profitable enterprise. Vast capital is
invested in lauds, stumpage mills and
outfit. The yearly demand calls for 7,
000,000,000 feet of lumber, and it must
be met by a supply. The energy of
money has grappled the logging indus
try, and dispenses with the agency of
frost Logging railroads have largely
taken the place of the sled for long
hauls. Pole roads are used for shorter
hauls, and together they furnish a
means whereby logging is carried for
ward in the snowless season as.well as
in the winter. The log supply no
longer depends on the character of the
season, as was once somewhat the case.
The requisite number of sticks can be
put in to keep the mills running in any
tvent
The pole road is a simple tramway
of poles, flattened for the car wheels,
and placed end to end along the sur
face of the ground. Broad flanged
wheels run on this rude track, and
bear up immense loads of logs and
convey them from the stump to tlte
water with a great saving of power.
The cars are drawn by horses, mules or
oxen. This kiud of road is much used
n the South. But the iron or steel
track logging railway is the triumph of
modem forest industry. By its agency
vast forests of splendid pine in the in
terior of Michigan have been pene
trated, and their crude wealth brought
out to the manufacturing centres. But
for this means the annual forest pro
duct of Michigan would have been
one-third less than it is to-day, but re
gions that art now denuded would still
have been clothed with a heavy growth
of pine. Still it must be said that the
logging railroad has saved a vast
amount of timber wealth from destruc
tion by fire. It is well known by those
familiar with forestry that in all
the pine regions, especially in Mich
igan, devastating fires annually sweep
over wide areas, and a large pro
portion of the most valuable tim
ber is scorched and killed before
the lumbermen can reach it If
pine is not cut and put into the water
during the winter following its being
killed by fire, the succeeding season it
becomes worm-eaten and "powder
pasted," and nearly or quite useless
for sawing into lumber. Immense
amounts of pine were formerly lost in
this way. But since capital and enter
prise have promoted the building of
logging railroads, a great saving of
burned timber has been made. A
pine owner nowadays would be con
sidered exceedingly lacking in enter
prise if he permitted a large tract or
burned pine to go to waste by neglect
ing to penetrate it with a railroad. The
construction of railway lines like the
Grand Rapids and Indiana, the Flint
and Pere Marquette, the Detroit Mack
inac and Marquette, and otbers.through
northern Michigan, has greatly de
veloped the lumber industry of the
State, by furnishing facilities for con
veying the product to market. Like
railroad facilities are being extended
through northern Wisconsin, and are
bringing the remotest timber resources
of that SUte within reach of the lum
bermen. The Telephone in the United States.
Six years ago the invention of the
telephone came to public notice, and in
1878 its practical value was recognized.
In last week's Bradstreet's these facts
are given: The telephone is to be es
tablished in Roumania. the only coun
try in Europe in which it has not been
introduced. The present number of
telephone exchanges in the United
States is 717, under the control of 81
companies. In 1881 there were 179
companies and 526 exchanges. In
1882 there were 189 companies, C72
exchanges.
Twelve excharges have more than
1,000 subscribers each. One company
in New York has 578; the Chicago
Exchange has 2,596; Cincinnati; 2.056;
Providence, 1,906; San Francisco,
1,249; Boston, 1,186; Detroit, 1,110;
Albany, 1,100; Buffalo, 1,047; Louis
ville, 1,024; Baltimore, 1,017. The
average number of communications
transmitted by each subscriber a day
is about 400. Telephone tariff varies
in different places. At Dallas, Texas,
the rates are 15 and 25 cents, according
to distance, for call and five minutes
conversation. In Buffalo, twelve tele
phone message tickets are sold for $1.
In New York the rate is $150 per
year. Previous to this year, the rate
in New York was $120. Providence

To Measure Heights. The hyp-
someter is the name of a useful little
instrument for measuring heights of
walls, timber, trees and spouting, and
therefore valuable to surveyors, build
ers and artisans. The plan is to take
a triangle, comjiosed of three slats
similar to the carpenter's angle, and
on each end of the longer side place a
small sight vane; suspend from the
lower side a metal ball to keen this
side horizontal, and construct a handle,
with a circle at its upper end, in which
the triangle can rest and move, and
by which it will slide into the proper
position by the weight of the ball.
Take the instrument by the handle
and move backward until the two
sights are brought into line with the
top of the building or other object.
The height will be found by adding the
distance of the operator from the
building to the height of the eye above
he ground.

A. needle manufactory has been es
tablished in Urooklyn, and is the only
one iu the country, all needUs hither
to having come from Euiope. They
are to be made by machinery, which
will be the lirst attempt of the kim'.
The manufacture has been entirely by
hand and rHjuh8 many operations:
the conveision of the wire into rou ili
needles requires twenty, the tempeiin
and annealing nine, polishing five,
which are repeated seven or titfht
timt s, aud sorting five. The Brooklyn
enterprise will, is to be hoped, prove a
success.
