"About five years ago I was staying In. a little town on the Pacific coast, ; partly for health and partly for pleas ure, and it was there I first made the acquaintance of Tom Chatlern. "Tom was a great favorite in the neighbor hood, as his face, form and manners ;Were irreproachable, and we soon be- came fast friends. We " were called ithe twins by the wits of the town, for jwe were inseparable, and many a lone lly night we spent together, camped on Ithe hillside under the twinkling stars. But Tom had a buried past, and no ' matter how jovial he was he would ! never speak of his early life, so I ! concluded he had suffered some bitter disappointment and had buried him self away from civilization in the rude but hospitable west." "He was, like many others, very susceptible to female charms, and was or was reputed to be in love with Eva Liston, the daughter of the sheriff of the county, one of the greatest of thief hunters known, but his daughter was his opposite in every way, and i was the fairest and sweetest girl on the shores of the Pacific. "One morning I shouldered my rifle street of the town, on my way to seek Chatlern, who was to accompany me on a day's shooting. I had not pro ceeded far before I met the object of my search, who rushed up and said, hurriedly: "I can't go to-day, Jim. I have re ceived some news about family affairs that has staggered me completely. I'm awfully sorry, but I really don't feel fit to go out. Good-by and a pleasant day's sport. "I watched his retreating form as he dashed up the street, and then slowly paced along wondering what could disturb a man usually - so cool and confident, but I soon gave up sur mising and started for the hills intend ing to make the best of a bad mat ter and spend as good a day as pos sible. "It was a singularly unlucky day, for I could not get within range of anything large, so with a curse at my ill luck I made tracks for the town early in the evening. I did not tell you that the town was situated on a rocky coast, whose shores were pre cipitous and dangerous in the extreme, especially near the town; in fact, no vessel save skin's and small boats dare run the gauntlet into the little shel tered bay inside the breakers. "As I approached the town I felt a little sheepish at returning so early, and empty-handed to boot; so I determined to take a stroll by the shore until night fell, when I could slip unnoticed home. - I struck down by the shore road, but soon quickened my pace, for I observed a crowd running in the direction of the Black Rocks, the most dangerous point on the whole coast, and I immediately concluded that some wayfarer had fallen over the rocks and was dashed to pieces below. I rushed up breathless and saw them gazing Into the roaring sea hundreds of feet below, straining their eyes to catch a glimpse of some object beneath. . 'He has escaped! . roared a big, burly man whom I recognised as the sheriff; "but, by heaveh, he shall never leave there alive! Would a revolver reach him, I wonder?' and, throwing himself down, he crept to the edge of the cliff and fired several shots to ward the sea. "Missed! he growled as he wiped The sheriffs daughter, the clay off his trousers; 'and worse lack the tide is running out. I hope hell remain here until it comes in again, as it will save us the trouble of finishing him. Hello, Mr. Hard ing!' addressing me, 'are you here?' "I asked the meaning of all the ex citement, and as I spoke the crowd gazed curiously at me, and some of them audibly remarked that I had been fooled, too. " "Well, it means that your twin brother, as he was called, is not Mr. Chatlern, but Jake Gaston, the most Irreproachable. bloodthirsty and relentless villain in the states. You needn't look alarmed. don't blame you, as I know you never suspected him neither did I, for he has been hiding here for years. He dispatched a message down the coast this morning to send a vessel up, for he smelled a rat; but we were too quick and made a raid on the house. Confound the fellow! He slipped through our fingers like an eel and made for the coast. Finding himself closely pressed, he went down these rocks like a monkey, and now sits below out of reach awaiting the vessel. By heaven! there she is and he sig nals her!' and he pointed to a schoon er that swept around the point under sail and anchored half a mile from the shore. "The excitement was now intense, and bets were freely taken about the result. They of the schooner saw that they dare not approach nearer to the shore, and were evidently afraid to send a boat through such a treach erous reef. "The sheriff danced with glee at their discomfiture, and, turning to me. said : 'Would you oblige me with your rifle, Mr. Harding, as my revolver can not reach him? I have instructions to take his body, alive or dead.' "I politely declined to part with my rifle for such a purpose, much to his astonishment, as Chatlern" had never wronged me and I had no wish to as sist at his death. "When matters were at a deadlock a skiff shot out from the coast, describ ing a crescent, spoke to the schoon er, and skimmed in to the rescue of the prisoner. All eyes were turned on the fragile boat, and as it drew near to the rocks below I saw, with horror, that the occupant was the sheriff's pretty daughter. "Nearer and nearer crept the little boat, dodging through the network ol rocks till at last it was so near that I could distinguish the golden locks and white, set face -of the rower. Poor gin: she loved him despite his wicked career, and I could not but admire the unselfish devotion of the unfortunate girl. The sheriff was beside himself with rage and vexation at being cheated by his own daughter, and as the skiff shot out, Chatlern, or rather Gaston, stood up and waved him an ironic adieu. Eva stood by his. side, the tears streaming down her face. But they were tears of joy. "We watched them till the boat was a mere speck on the bosom of the ocean. That was the last I have ever seen of my twin brother. Like Bar kis, "he went out with the tide.'"- Henry Q. Barrison in Chicago Jour nal. International Playgrounds.

Topeka was glad to welcome the big brawny Theodore Roberts back pnce more, even without the gray mustache and ungainly stride of Colonel Candy.

In a chapter on tLe artificial culti vation of sea fish, contributed by R. B. Marston ' to Aflolo'-s "British Kali Water Fishes," it is stated that there need be no fear that such important fish as the cod and the herring can ever become extinct or even reduced in numbers by man, except locally. A cod of ten pounds has a million eggs. On July 26, 1895, Professor Henson calculated that there must be over 278,000,000,000 of impregnated cod eggs in each square Norgegian geographical mile of the surface of the Skagerrak. Consequently the 300,000, 000 or 400,000,000 eggs artificially hatched and turned in annually from a Norwegian hatchery are only a drop in the ocean. Music Aids Surgery. Perhaps the strangest use to which music can be put is to stop the flow of blood from a wound. An army doc tor noticed that when a wounded sol dier was taken to within an easy hear ing distance of music hemorrhage was greatly reduced or stopped. Neither he nor others who confirmed his ob servations could understand how this phenomenon was brought about, but it is now said that the vibration of the air produced by the music causes the patient to become faint, in which case. the action of the heart is so consider ably lessened that the overflow of blood is reduced.
