Mary Wilson had passed the first seventeen years of her life in a country village; then she went to the city to visit her brother and found its attractions so alluring that six months passed away and the time of her return to country life was, as yet, indefinitely postponed. For two months previous to her visit her untry friends had vied with each other in telling her tales of the cunning, the wickedness, the subtiiity of the city sharpers, pickpockets and burglars, until the idea became firmly fixed in her mind that she was going into a den of thieves; but as yet, she had met with no adventure worthy of note, and was fast teaching the conclusion that city people were no worse than their country neigh bors, when something occurred which caused her, for a short time at least to change her mind. But of this, more .anon. She was still heart whole,although she Jhad been sought by several very eligible suitors since her arrival in the city, for she was a pretty girl, very desirable for her own sweet pake, but stHl more so as Mary Wilson, sister of the wealtny and influential lawyer Wilson, and this was how matters stood, when one Sabbath -she chanced to see a stranger in the pew adjoining her brother's, and could not help seeing that the stranger was re garding her with admiring eyes, very handsome eyes they were, too, but Bhe tried to dismiss all thought of him, and them, as she had done of others on simi lar occasions, bat found it impossible. Those dark eyes presented themselves to her mental viBion with a persistency for which she could not account. On Monday evening her brother "bought tickets and invited his wife and sister to attend alecture; and Miss Mollie caught herself wondering, as she donned iier cloak and hat, if the dark-eyed gen- ueman wou a oe mere, and if be would xuujf. at xier. one iouna ine lecture in sufferably dull, and concluded, after a time, to return home. She whispered this intention to her brother, who saw her to his carriage, and giving instruc tions to the coachman to return for them, he went back to his wife, while Miss Mollie was driven rapidly home ward. Arrived there, she left her hat and cloak in the hall and ran lightly up the stairs to her room. The door was partly open, although she was sure she 'iiad closed it, the gas was turned low as 'She had left it, and in the half light she saw, before she reached the doorway, a man in the room. His back was toward Jier, and he was walking toward a large -closefcat the other side of the apartment. iHe opened the door and stepped inside. One glance told her that the key was in the lock; she ran swiftly across the room, her feet making little or no sound on the thick carpet "Confound it," she heard him mutter, "why can't tney leave things where a fellow can find them?" "Yes," "she though t,"her first surmise was cor rect; it was a burglar." Like a flash she threw herself against the door and turn ed the kf-y. She was terribly frightened, rant! ielt quite sure that she should faint, -but hb her prisoner made no demonstra tions beyond trj ing the door gently, this tiasiiigcsoon wore off. She turned on the gas and drew a chair in front of the closet .door, where she eat down to consider w"hat it would be beBtto do. If she called the servants they would be frightened; there would be noise and confusion, and .perhaps ne would get away. If she went 'down after a policeman, he might get out while she was gone; no, she would stay where she was and keep guard until her brother should return. She had surely caught him, and did it very neatly, too; and the more she thought of it the braver and more jubilant Bhe grew. She wished he would speak; she was anxious to know how he felt about the situation. Presently he did speak; he had a very pleasant voico; he tried the door again -and asked: "Who locked that door?" And she answered promptyl, "I did." " What for?" "Why, to lock you in there, of course, ana 1 aonc intend that you: shall get away euner. There was silence for a minute or two; hen the prisoner remarked: "Don'tyou think this joke has gone far enough, Jlollie, dear? Now let me out. There's darling." "Oh you wretch you villian ! How dare you?" "How dare what?" -"Why, call me that." ""Thought it was my sister. By Jove,!" lie exclaimed in a lower tone. Then he bent down and lookod through the key 'hole. This was what he saw: A grace ful girlish figure, robed is some soft, clinging material; a bright, self-reliant . lace, framed by masses of fluffy brown hair. It took him some time to make '.these observations, for the key-hole was so small that be could see but a part of the yretty picture at once. Then he re raarked, UI think, Miss, that there is some mistake." ' "Oh, yes, I svppofte so," sarcastically. "I think I came into the wrong ilLaase:" r "I think yon did." "Isn't this No. 4?" "No, indeed, it is No. 2." i "Well, I stop at No. 4, came there on Saturday to visit my sister Mollie Brown. The houses must be j?6 I went to the lecture and found it dull, so came home, or thought I did." "Humph! a likely Btory.w I hope you may find it acceptably remarked the young man, who occason .11. aKKixri in lTtAratnra. Then the comical side of the affair forced itself upon him, and he Isoghed, actnaiiy laughed; she heard him." "You seem to . enjojr the situation, she said somewhat spitefully, thinking it proof of his royal depravity." "I do, immensely." . ' "I should think you would, with he gallows staring you in the face." "The gallows?" "Yes, I am sure my brother will have you hanged." "Your brother?" then doubtfully and hesitatingly: "Are you Bella Clark?" "No, indeed I am not," very energet ically; for Bella Clark Dr. Clark's sis ter and Mrs. Brown's neare&tneigbbor on the other side was what Mollie Wilson always designated as a "die-a-way sort of person," and was her special detes tation. "I am glad of that," said the prisoner in relieved .tone. "Why?" with evident interest "Well, you know," confidentially, "I should not want her to capture me." "I should think not. Well, you need not fear, she will not, now." A moment's silence, then. "Don't you think it cruel to keep a fellow-being shut ud in the dark for so long?" "A burglar isn't a fellow-being; he is just a a a -burglar." "A burglar, whew? Do you think I could put one of my cards through this keyhole?" "I am sure I don't know." "May I try?" "YrS." Then came a jingle as of silver money, and a rustle of garments as the man searched his pockets. "Well, nang it all, l naven t got one!" "I thought you bad not." "They are in the breast pocket of my coat; I left it in your hall, will you not go down and get one?" "And have you come out and murder me while I am gone? No, sir." "Will you please let me out?" "No, sir; never." "What, never?" "Well, no." smiling in spite of herself, "not after that." "I suppose I could kick tne door open." She gave a little scream. "Oh! don't; please don't do that." "Well, there, there don't be frightened, I will not kick, nor even try to get out." Then there was silence, and she began to feel doubtful about her prisoner, and was debating with herself as to whether she would not better call a policeman, when she heard her brother and his wife in the hall below. "Harry." she called from the head of the stairs, "come up here at once." Harry came. "What is it, sis?" "I've got a man shut in that closet I think he is a burglar, but he says he isn't, and I began to fear that he is tell ing the truth." "How did you get him in there?" "Well, I came np the stairs and he was just going into the closet, and I ran and locked him in." "Yes," said a voice, almost choked with laughtuer, "and I'm here yet" "Who are you?" "Charles Kingsley, visiting my sister at No. 4. next door I presume left my hat and coat in your hall. 'You will find letters in the coat pocket; you can verify my statement in a moment, if you choose." 4 "Charles Kingsly? called at my office to-day with Brown;" then to Mollie. "It is all right, sis; burglars do not leave hats and coats in the hall. I have met this gentleman. You may come out," he added, opening the door. And Mr. Kingsley advanced into the light room and looking quizzically at his goaler. She gave one glance at the laughing brown eyes bent upon her, and then fled from the room. It was the gentleman she had seen in church. "Ah! you are Mr. Wilson," said Kings ley, in a pleased tone, as that gentleman held out his hand. I hope you will par don me for entering your house in this manner. I arrived on Saturday, the houBee are just alik6 on the outside and inside, too, I believe, and in the dim light I did not notice the number. I should have noticed that this was a lady's room," said he, glancing at its dainty furnishing, "but the gas was turned low, and the room I occupied at my sister's is furnished much the same; in fact, she gave up her own room to me, for the house is full of company. I went into a a closet for a boot jack I thought I had left there, and put my hand into a band box; had just concluded that I would better have more light when the door closed. I fear I frightened her very much; will you present my regrets and say that I am truly sorry?" "Come over to-morrow, and dine with us, and make your peace with the young lady yourself," said WilBOn. The invitation so cordially given was accepted; in fact, Mr. Kinsley became a frequent visitor at the Wilson home stead, somewhat to the disappointment of his good sister, who had fully intend ed he should marry Dr. Clark's bister and heiress, Bella, and who, as soon as she had made np her mind on the sub ject set herself about defeating her own wishes by filling ever? letter to ner brother with praises of th9 paragon she would have chosen for him had not the fates willed otherwise. Six weeks from the date of his incar ceration in the Wil6on mansion he en tered the parlor and found Miss Mollie alone. "Miss Wilson," he began, "when I came here six weeks ago you thought I came to steal, but you were the thief, for you stole my heart You made me an unwilling captive then, but I have been a willing one ever since. I came here to-day to ask if you will be my wife." And for all answer she laid her hand in his and hid her rosy blushes upon his shoulder. Boyal Blood. We are all kings and queens in this country, and we have a right to have as good blood as that which courses through the veins of emperors. If the blood is poor and the cheeks are pale; it is well known that Brown's Iron Bitters is the great tonic which will give color, vigor,amd vitality. Mr. M K. Gibson, of-West ointjMisa, says: "I felt weak and de biliated. "Brown's Iron Bittsrs smaie J me strong and well." 9sssE -Sfe"! FARM AND FAMILY: A good'fxed fob poskkbs. Pigs relish green corn, and when they are o fed they consume the entire stalk they get quite as much benefit is they do from the grain alone later on. The nutrive materials which go to make the starch of the hardened grain are now scattered throughout the stalk in the form of sugar, and are in their most easily digestible condition. ABICHSOIL. Although the rich soil of Holland is worth from $300 to $400 per acre, a large portion is devoted to pasturage and meadow. She feeds over 150,000 head of cattle, although her area is usually 600,090 acres, and produces annually 21, 000,000 pounds of cheese and 1,000,000 pounds of butter. The cows used to have been carefully cared fo? centuries for producing the larger yields of milk, and are now now unexcelled. - A SSMEDY FOB SCAB. The treatment usually practiced for scab in sheep is to steep one pound of tobacco in a gallon of boiling hot water; then add four ounces flowers of sulphur and stir frequently until the liquid is cooled to 120. It is then poured over the sheep, along the back, and as it runs down rub it in the scabby part with the hand, using also a corn cob to break up the scabs. The same treat ment will prevent healthy sheep from being infected. Apply onc6 or twice and then keep the sheep in a dry plac for a few days. BREEDING PIGS. If a sow produces two litters each year it follows that during two-thirds of the time the energies of her svstem are di rected to the growth of these litters be fore farrowing. This leaves only four months of the year to suckle the two litters, or. only the length usually al lowed for one. It sometimes happen that sows are bred soon after they have farrowed, and are thus required to carry one iicier wnue suckling another. But this always results in the diminished thrift of one litter or the'other.and often in the injury of both, as well as the sow herself. FOB THE DAIRYMAN. The introduction of the creamery has wrought a wonderful revolution in dairy methods. Scarcely ten years have passed since co-operative butter-making came into vogue. Yet in that brief time the butter product of Iowa has been raised from only a million pounds annually to almost 100,000,000 in 1884; from a few hundred thousand cows to 1,200,000 in 1880; from an inferior article of "Wes tern grease" to a superior article of "Iowa gilt-edge butter,' and from a mere pittance to a handsome price per pound Cows have nearly doubled in average value. The acreage of pasturage was greatly increased, which rests the eoil and the farmer. EIGHT POUNDS OF AMBER. London Truth. A piece of amber weighing eight pounds is at present being exhibited in he Mark museum, at Dantzic,for which he owner has refused 1,500. It is prob ably the largest piece in tne world with out blemish. Frederick the Great, more than a century ago, paid the same snm for apiece weighing thirteen pounds which is preserved in the mineralogical museum at Berlin, but it has gaps and cavities. Two beautiful pieces of work in amber are also to be seen in Berlin. One is a flute, which also was an acqui sition, oi ireaericK tne lireat.

The word negro does not denote a na tion, tut an ideal type constituted by the assemblage of certain physical char acteristics exemplified in the natives of certain portions of Africa and their de scendants in America and the West In dies. In Africa the area occupied by the genuine negro, men with black skin thick lips, depressed noBe, and wool hair, is exceedingly small compared with the remainder of the' continent As a rule the prevalent color in Africa is that of the Arab, the Indian, and the Australian. The true negro districts are the Senegai, the Gambia, the Niger, and the intermediate rivers of the coast, parts of Sudania, Sennaar,Kardofan, and Darfur. People who are certainly not negroes inhabit the whole coast of the Mediteranean, the desert the Kafir, and Hottentot areas south of tho line Abys sinia, and the middle and lower Nile. This does not leave much territory for the typical negro. A WESTERN VOLCANO. Virginia City Chronicle. A volcano has broken forth in the mountains sixty miles southwest of Bishop creek. A party- of frightened sheep herders rode intoCandelana a few days ago covered with dust and ashes, and with numerous holes burned in their clothing. They reported that on Satur day they were Btartled by an unusual rumbling noise and trembling of the ground. At first they mistook the noise and rumbling for thunder, but it was quickly followed by a tremendous ex plosion, and on looking up they were appalled at seeing a mountain not rar away belching forth a colum of ""-.V r A, ; ?-- &ffej and smoke several hundred feet in height; The air was soon filled with fiery cinders and. hot ashes, which came down npon them in clouds.

A very good story was told the other day of a young man painfully conscious of an exterior scarcely worthy of his character. Accompanied by the young woman whom he married,he stepped in to PhtoSrpaer,s drew the artist aside. He wanted their "picture's" taken, but-had a special favor to ask. "Her folks, he exclaimed, "go a good deal on style. They never saw me, and if I send them my face they'll be dead agin me. I'm a sight better than I look, and when people come to know me they vote me a brick. Now, then, what do you say ? Will you stand in? She's willing. Those big whiskers of yours It'll take them at once and create harmony. You look like a solid capitalist, and they'd take me for a petty larceny thief." Of couse the photographer could not refuse a favor so flatteringly proposed, and the distant relatives, no doubt, in due time were gratified with his portrait Eide by sid with that of the young lady. REPORTER VISIT THE HOLY LAND. An Instructive Study ot the Geography of That Region. Minneapolis Tribune. "I have been up to see that great pan orma of the Holy land you were speak ing aoout, said me reporter, as ne dropped into & cushioned chair and ele vated his brogans on the city editor's desk. "Well, how was it? Tell us all about it. It is so long since I was there I have forgotten about many of the points of interest." "Well, I went up one flight of stairs, from Seventh street into Mount Olivet, and sat on the ropes that surrounded it to keep spectators from falling off into what appears to be a life sized section of sheol below. Then the professor came up and took a long stick and began poking it at Jericho and the Dead sea and Damascus and other places you have probably read about." "When I went to Sunday school we didn't go around poking sticks at the Holy land." "Well, that was because you went to Sunday school in California, where they advertise the garden of Eden as a suburb of San Francisco. Besides, you didn't stick to it long enough to learn anything about it, anyhow. Don't you see, this is a panorama, an illuminated canvas dis playing the whole country in miniature, just as you see it from a balloon view with the mountains and villages, the hills and seas, and rivers and cities, in fact the whole contour of the country displayed in their proper proportions. 1 tell you it was pretty fine, but it takes a fellow who is well-informed in bib lical lore to catch on to the interesting points. The professor with the long stick pointed out Jeruselam and the temple, with its many courts and gates, and the tower of Antonia, on the right, where Paul was rescued irom a mob of influential citizens, who waited on him for the purpose of carving him into small pieces. Then I wanted to see Lot's wife and the place where the young dude who went down from Jericho fell among thieves and was robbed of his watch and valuables. The professor took his long stick and pointed out a green spot on the map which is claimed as Lot's wife. "I hadn't expected the lady to look so fresh, having been salted so long, but it must have been the paint. "Said he: 'I have a chunk of the salt. When we go down the mountain I'll show it to you. It's modern Lot, of course.'" "Job lot I suppose," chimed in the city editor." "Well, then he displayed Bethel, where Jacob slept with a stone for a pillow; it must have been rocky travel ing in those days, and the roads where the caravan used to run from Damascus to Egypt before the Northern Pacific was completed, and the vineyard of the chap who walled up his lot and then went oft into a far country; maybe he went to Jeruselam to apply for a fourth class postoffice the professor didn't eay. Away out on one side of the scene were a lot of white dots which repre sented the cities of the plain, every one containing 15,000 people, twenty of which Solomon gave to some royal duff er for furnishing cedar wood for the temple. "But the most curious thing about the whole business was the mountains and valleys, very life-like, indeed; the moun tains all cut in gorges, with streams running down to the valleys below, which were most luxuriantly furnished with herbage, palm and fig trees, and other vegetables to order. The professor gave me some points about oranges growing 'six inches in di ameter, and grapevines as thick as the electric mast, bearing bunches of grapes twenty inches long." OBSERVANT MAMIE WITHERSPOON. Texas Sittings.' 'So this is your birthday ,is it,Mamie?" said a visitor at the residence of Colonel Witherspoon, the whole family being present in the room at the time. "Yep, this is my birthday," replied Mamie. ''And I suppose you have had lots ol presents?" "My birthday 'is of no account," re sponded Mamie, shaking her head; "it is on the 25th of the month. My sister haa a much nicer birthday than I have. Hers is on the 3rd of the month." "What difference does that make?" "It makes all the diflerence in the world. Papa has got lots of money to buy presents with on the third of the month, but I don't stand any show at all on my birthday, for then his salary is al most all gone." After the visitor had departed Mamie was very much surprised at getting something on her birthday for which she was not prepared. An extraordinary wedding occurred u Pierce county, Georgia, recently.

How it Bared the Necks of Tklcrrea Tfke Had Bobbed a Benefactor. In the recent -examination here of Frank Howard for the killing of Charles Williams, writes a Lander, Wyoming territory, correspondent to the St. Louis 6lobe-Democrat,one of the witnesses call ed was George Baker. The appearance of this man vividly recalled to our cor respondent a dramatic criminal incident hat transpired in the Big Horn country two years ago. In the spring of 1882 the Baker family, numbering some fifteen persons.all told, with three wagons,crossed the Big Horn mountains from the neighborhood of the town of Buffalo, where they had winter ed, and struck the Big Horn river just below the home ranch of the mammoth cattle firm of Mason & Lovell. They pulled into the ranch with tired teams, and almost in a starving condition them selves. Mr.'Clay Anderson, in charge of of the Mason & Lovell ouf fit at that point, recognized Baker as a man he had known in the old Kentucky state, and, thongh the reputation he had borne there was none of the best, the princely hospitality of the ranch to all comers was extended to him. The rich, inclos sed pastures along the river bottoms were proffered for their tired stock, the shelter of the ranch accorded, provisions furnished in abundance, and when after a stay of ten days, the family once more moved on tney dirt so with an ample supply of every thing they needed from the stores of the ranch. In the fall of 1883 the Bakers were again on the trail. This time they were headed up the Big Horn.retracing the way they had follow ed in the spring of 1882. They had spent tne intervening time in a section furth er to the west, and had left only before they were driven off, leaving behind them a most unsavory reputation. On arriving again at the hostitable ranch of Moson & Lovell that they had such good canse to remember with gratitude, they found no one there. Anderson and his outnt were aosent on tne annual spring cattle gatner. Here was an opportunity congenial to the Baker character and one which the Baker family did not neglect. The ranch was gutted at once ot every thing portable and the plunder stored in the wagons, that soon were rolling again up the valley of the Big Horn. But IS emesis, in the shape of an outraged lot of cowboys, was already astir. Ander son, the day of the theft, sent a man to the ranch for a few articles stored there. The messenger discovered the robbery before it was six hours old, and at once rode at breakneck speed to the cowboy camp to leport. The next morning's sun found the boys on the ground, and the trail was at once taken up, and as if followed the main wagon road of the country, was followed at a lope. The Bakers had pushed on all night,and had succeeded in placing the Big Horn river between them and their pursuers. Strik ing the ferry where the marauders had crossed the river. Anderson fousfd the boat on the other side. Without a pause Anderson spurred into the fierce current and breasting the icy waters, reached the other shore. He was instantly and gallantly followed,and soon the cowboys were riding straight upon their qnarry now in sight. Uttering a few hurried but comprehensive orders, Andrson dashed at once to the lead wagon.driven by Baker himself, and, with garments still dripping with the waters of the Big Horn, threw down a heavy Colt's on the old thief, with the stern command, "Hands up." He was obeyed with little parley, the old woman only whining, "Don't kill my old man, Clay. You can have your things." By this time the other wagons, under the guard of pistol muzzles, had approached, and the whole party were speedily hustled to the ground while the wagons were searched for the stolen goods. These were all found, and the demand of the cowboys now was that the robbersshould be hung to the end of their own wagon tongues. The woman and children broke into screams and cries of entreaty for mercy, while the men, with bleached faces but sullen mien awaited their fate. Ander son quieted the tumult by telling the woman that their husbands would be spared, and then addressing his cowboys called their attention to the helpless be ings wno would De leit snonld tney carry out their determination to hang the men. The boys at once gave way and told An derson to settle the matter as he thought best. This was speedily accomplished by the payment of a round sum in money for damage done the ranch, the imme diate return of the stolen goods to where they were taken from,and a stern warn ing to the entire gang that they would stretch hemp if ever caught on Mason & Lovell's ranch again,eapplemented with the assurance that their woman and children were all that saved their worth less lives on the present occasion.

A simple plan of making sea-water platable would he a great boon to mari ners cast away in boats or rafts, and also to our navle lorces. Mr. Thomas Kay has recently shown that i he beneficial ef feet of sea-water as a drink are chiefly due to the presence of chlorine, which is combined with sodium and magnesium. It produces thirst and scurvy when taken in excess. In order to remove the chlo rine, he mixes sea-water with a certain preparation of citric acid, or silver cit rate, and thus produces what may be called a mild mineral water, which is drinkable, and being nearly free of pre cipitated chlorine, is not injurious to health when taken in moderate quanti ties. At a recent meeting in Manchester he treated a pint of sea-water brought from beyond the Eddystone with 860 grains of citiate of silver, and four grains of free citric acid. Silver chloride was precipitated and the ovelayinghquid de canted and filtered; each fluid ounce of it contained about eighteen grains of citrate of soda, one and a half of citrate of magnesia, half a grain of citrate of potash, one grain of sulphate of magne sia, half a grain of sulphate of lime, one fifth grain of citric acid, and less than half a grain of undecomposed chlorides. The salts of soda in this liquid are diuretic, the salts of magnesia aperi ent, hence it possesses medicinal proper ties. It could be safelv used to moisten the tongue and throat and drink in small quantities, xne curate oi silver employ ed to treat the water should be kept in a stoppered bottle, covered with India rubber, soas to exclude light, air and organic matter, as it is easily decompos ed. As an ounce of citrate of silver con verts half a pint of sea water, a man may keep alive for a day upon it. Seven ounces will, it is therefore inferred, keep him alive for a week; and it has been proposed to stow bottles of the salt un der the thwarts of lifeboats, and in the lockers of certain life-buoys which carry restoratives.
