C-CTOR Frank
Clinton sat mus
ing" alone in his
ofSee, his hands
crossed on his
knets, and an
anxious look in
his eyes. His
oice was hard
ly comfortable.
The .floor was
bare, save for a
couple of cheap
mats. The pa
per was dingy, and guiltless of any
adornment in the way of pictures, excepting-
only his diploma, which was
incased in a heavy gilt frame. A
desk, a book-case partly tilled, an old
fashioned sof.i, and a few stuffed
chairs, were the only other articles of
Doctor Clinton was a young man,
and would have been handsome in
different surroundings. Ha had been
in his present oiHce for two months,
and as yet had only bten called to a
child with the vvhooping--coug-h, whose
parents were too poor to g-ive him
anything more than thanks, and their
bles?-insT, for his services. lie had
pawned the least raltmble of his sur
gical instruments, aft;r spending all
his means, he was in arrears for board
and the landlady ha 1 ;ust piven him
notice to pay up or vacate his rooms.
Suddenly he lookod up with a
changed expression. The bell had
rung-, and who but i patient could
have run? it? He orened the door
and the sweet voice of a lady asked:
"Are you Doctor Clinton?"
"Yes, madams. Please walk in and
be seated," said the -doctor, a faint
shade of nervousness ming-ling- with
his polite reply.
She was exceedingly fair, with larg-e
brown eyes, and reddish ffolden hair.
Her dress was rich and her appearance
was that of a lady.
"I want you to call a nd see my fath
er," she said.
"This evening-?" asked the doctor.
"Well no," she answered, hesitating-
a little. "Tomor-ow will be bet
ter; but I must tell you beforehand,
it is an odd case, and i ba 1 one. But
if you succet-d in rel evinsr him, you
have only to name 3-01. r fee."
"What is the trouole?" asked the
"Well, he is a hypDeondriac," said
the lady slowly, and it seemed unwil
lingly. "He has a str in-e hallucina
tion, and if he is not c ared it will end
in his death."
"You have consulted other physi
cians?" he 'ask d.
'Several of them," (he said, a little
Hurried. "So ne of the best in the
city. They had no no tact. They
only arg-ued w ith him. and and did
no! hiiiu-."'
There was something charming- in
the way she hesitated over her choice
of words.
"You t hink lie should be humored?"
asked the doctor.
'Yes,' she cried, her face filling
with a wonderously bright expression.
"You have caug-ht my idea. Oh, sir,
do you think you can cure him?"
"I will do all I can,"' the doctor
gravely said. "What in his hallunica
tion?" "It is concerning his food," she
said, the piquancy dying out of her
face. "That, is, to be exact, it is
about what is given him to drink.
For days, sometimes, nothing- liquid
passes his lips."
"lie fancies it is poisoned?"
"Worse than that," cried his lovely
isitor. "He thinks it is filled with
the finest needles."
"But he has rational intervals?"
"Yes, thank heaven" sua said, with
6weet fervor. "Else ha would havs
been in his grave ere this."
Tho doctor sat silent and thought
ful for a few moments; then he said:
"Give me the addrsss, please. I'll
call to-morrow."
She drew a card from her purse, on
rhich was her name:
Miss BtAolT,
Walnut street, Philadelphia.
They had reached the doorstep.
"Only o irf thing" more, Miss Brad

"It ruv not be best
for me to call upon your father as a

"Because he may be prejudiced.
You see much willde end upon adroit
ness. It would ba better if I could
call upon some pretended business."
She paused a moment in thought.
Then she said: "lie owns houses on

"That is the very thing-. It will
serve my purpose. iid, Miss Brad

"I think I understand," she said
imply. "Uood 6 vet iu, sir."
The next morning- he took frooa a
drawer a strong" horse-shoe magnet,
and rubbed it steadily on the blade of
his knife.
At length, when he had thoroug-hly
electrified the. blade, he replaoed it in
his pocket, and taking" his hat started
to make his first professional call; his
very first, save the one to the child
with the whooping- cough. Cm the way
to Mr. Bradey's residence, he stopped
long" enoug-h to purchase a paper of
very fine cambric needles. When he
arrived at his destination he was
shown to the library, where he
found Mr. Bradey. Miss Bradey had
been seated in one of the deep bay win
dows, and now, as the doctor's earnest
tones fell upon her ear, she laid aside
her book and sat an interested lis
tener. "Mig-ht I trouble you for a drink of
water?" suddenly asked the physician.
Miss Bradey murmured an indis
tinct "yes," left the room and re
turned almost immediately with the
desired g-las3 of water, which the phy
sician accepted with a bow.
He raised the g-lass to his lips, and
then a look of intense astonishment
came into his face.

stant, pulled savag-ely at his mustache,
and then faced his host.
"What is the matter.sir?" asked Mr.
"Matter," echoed the doctor, angri
ly, "this water is full of needles!
Numbers of them! the water is full of
them! Don't you. see them?"
"Needles!" shouted Mr. Bradey, ex
citedly. "Needles! What did I tell
you, Kate."
"But I see no needles," she said.
' Oh, you see no needles." sarcastic
ally rejoined the doctor. "Mr. Bra ley,
what do you say? Do you see any
"You are right," declared Mr. Bra
dey. "I see them plainly with the
naked eye, and my sig-ht is poor, too.
But you can't convince her, sir! She
can't see them.
"Maybe I can convince her," said
the doctor.
He took out his knife, and opened it.
j Then he thrust the magnetized blade
: into the water, and when he with-
drew it a number of tine needles
j clung- to it, which he, unobserved, had
i dropped into the g-Iass.
j "But you do not seem surprised,"
i the doctor said, turning- to Mr. Bradey.
"No," responded he, grimly. "It Is
t not a new experience to me. For
s months I have found them in every
; thing- offered me to drink. I
have watched in vain to see who puts
; them in the beverage presented to
me, but I can't find out. You are the
only person who has ever been able
I to get them out, or to see them, and I

i "Thomas," replied Miss Bradey.
J "Please summon him to come hare."
In answer to Miss Bradey's touih of

"Did you fill this glass witn water?"
! asked the phy -a, sharply.
I "Yes, sah," wered the s-irant,
staring at Doct. Clinton, and then at
Mr. Bradey.
"Why did you put needles into it?"
continued the doctor.
"Law', inassa, I never put no
needles in it. That's a notion of Mr.
Bradey's, sah. Dey ain't no needles
in dan, sah," answered the darky,
with a grin.
"No needles here?" said the doctor.
"What do you call these?" and again
the blade of his knife was plunged
into the water, and, as before, came
up with quantities of needles adher
ing to it.
"Before de Lord, sah, 'deed I neber
put no needles in that glass. 'Deed,
sail, dey mus' a bin in de cooler, be
cause I neber seed 'em afore."'
"You may go," said the doctor, glar
ing fiercely at the man who left the
room in a complete state of mystitica
tion. "Now, sir," continued the doc
tor, "Thij matter seems to be settled.
This man must either be crazy or a
fool. At any rate, your best plan is j
to get rid of him at once."
"I'll do so, sir, immediately. Kate

won't have the wretch here any
longer." Then turning to his guest,
Mr-, Bradey added: "You have laid

Miss Kate accompanied the doctor
to the door. He read her eager eyes
aright even before her lips opened,
and said in reply to the question she
was about to ask: T think he is cured. "
"You really think that?" she said,
oh, so eagerly.
"Yes," smiled the doctor. "I real
ly think it."
"Well, we must wait and see," said
Miss Bradey. "Your idea was splen

will please call again? And, mean
time, accept this a s a prelimina ry fee. "
"Thank you," he said, as he took
the roll of bills she pressed into his
hand. "One thing more. Miss Bradey.
If I was hard upon Thomas, in having
him dismissed from his place, can you
make it lip to him by procuring- him
another situation? You see I was
obliged to have some object to attack.
Else my stratagem would not have
succeeded. Will you explain to him
and s?e him righted?"
'Yes. I will try," she answere 1.
The doctor bowed, and then hurried
back to his oflice. He paid up the
debts which most annoyed him. and
felt like another man. "At the end of
a week he received another fee from
his fair benefactress.

A Stan Tells How It FeeU to Receive a Side
Stroke From Katnrc'i Electri Battery.
Th rjffhtnlns Rod's Decadence Some
Sample Freak.
"Do you know how it feela to be
Btrnck by lighring?"
This question was propounded to me
by a friend during one of the earliest
thunderstorms of
the season and
just after an un
usually heavy
crash, almost im
mediately fol
lowing a blind
ing flash. Of
course I replied
in the negative,
and my friend re
joined: ""Well, I do

much as I care tu

playful pat, so to
speak. He who
receives the full
force of
a light
stroke nothing,
Even if he be not
killed, he is ren
dered u n c o n -ecious.
But the
sensation of re-
stroke is most
the marked MO.NC- singular. It ia
mext. something, too,
that you do not care to experience for
the second time.
"It was when I was but a lad that I
felt the lightning's force. I was living
at home with luy parents in a little
country village. The day was warm,
no one was in the house but myself, and
I was sittiner by an open window read
ing the 'Old Cariosity Shop. If you
are familiar with Dickens, yon are
aware that he delighted to portray
storms, and that bis pen was rarely mora
graphic than when lie depicted their tur
moil. I had leached this passage: 'Large
drops of rain soon began to fall, and a3
the etormclouds carne sailing onward
others supplied the void they left be
hind and spread over all the sky. There
was heard the low rumbling of distant
thunder. Then tho lightning quivered,
and then the darkness of an hour seem
ed to have pathered in an instant. ' "
"What immediately followed my read
ing of these words must have driven
them into my memory, for I have not
yet forgi.;ttr-n them, tl.ough I lo not re
member in what part of the stpry the
passage occurs. The scene described
by the novelist seemed to have been
duplicated right there, for huge drops
of rain began to flash in at the open
window, clouds went scurrying across
the blue summer sky, and 'the darkness
of an hour seemed to have gathered in
an instant. ' Then there came an aw
ful noise, such as I hope never to hear
again, and at exactly the same moment
a light far transcending that of the
noonday son. Then I was conscious
uf,utter, black darkness, such as I had
never experienced before, and a silence
more profound than that of the most
absolute solitude. I tried to cry out,
but I could not. I tried to rise, but I
was powerless. I was not unconscious,
but I could neither hear, see nor move.
I could not even feel, but I could think
very clearly.
"I knew at once that I had been
struck. I was in no pain whatever, and
as I had found that I was unable to help
myself I soon ceased making any effort.
After a little space my sense of touch
returned slowly and with a sort of
pricking feeling. Then a faint light was
visible; then the power of motion came
back gradually and with some pain. In
half an hour my faculties had all re
turned, but I felt weak and diazy. A fine,
quiet summer rain was falling, and
when I was well enough to go about I
put on my hat and went out to seek for
traces of the potent stroke that had so
nearly done for me. I had not far to
look. The bolt had struck the peak of
the roof of the barn, which stood some
200 or 300 feet back of the house. The
building had not been fired, but it was
pretty etfectually shattered. Splinters
of pine were tern from the weather
boarding of all lengths, from 2 or 3
inches to 5 or 6 feet, and of all sizes,
from that of wrapping yarn to that of a
thick lead pencil. One of the largest
splinters had been thrown from the barn
clear across the yard into the highway.
The gla.ss in the barn windows had been
splintered into long, threadlike spines,
and the whole structure was so much
of a wreck that it cost a pretty penny to
put it in repair. It was fortunate that
there was no live stock in the barn. If
there had been, it must have been killed
by the stroke. No," said my friend in
conclusion, "there was no lightning rod
on the barn, and the storm was followed
hy a perfect hoard of agents, who talked
aeir wares to my father till he wise
nearly sick ftx.ct Luilly bocg'ut a set of
jo - v
'f j t vi '7 1
rods -i much for protection from the im
portuxiiries of the peddlers as for any
additional security they might give to
the buildings. "
So far as my own observation goes,
the lightning rod agent dot-a not make
himself nearly so numerous as ho
once did. Certainly the percentage of
buildings without the surmounting
points is much larger than formerly.
Dread of thunderstorms is to many
persona a most horrible thing. I know
a man of the coolest temperament, a
man who has exhibited genuine courage
on more than one occasion of real peril,
who will leave his desk when a thunder
storm comes up and walk up and down
his office, wringing his hands and mak
ing a nuisance of himself generally. He
says he cannot control his fears, and
that is doubtless true, for he is keenly
sensible to the ridiculousness of the fig
ure he cuts. His doctor says that the
man's physical system is probably affect
ed deleteriously by the electrical condi
tions of the atmosphere during a thun
derstorm, and that he is quite incapable
of remaining quiet during it3 continu
ance. Ther is one class of men and women
Who have a dislike for thunderstorms
that is based upon pxperiences that are
bo definite and so disagreeable that it is
not surprising that they have produced
this result. They are the telephone and
telegraph operators, and the stories they
sometimes tell each other of streaks and
globes of blue and green and red fire
running along and skipping off the wires
are sxtch as to sometimes arouse scoff
injrs on the part of the increlnlous.
Those who knew the most about light
ning harnessed by means of wires and
unharnessed and pursuing its free course
in the sky and aniong the the clouds,
it is worthy of note, aro not likely to
scoff at any story that is told of the
lightning. It is a curious thing, though,
that, although there is no doubt of the
existence of what appear to the observer
to be balls of fire attendant upon thun
derstorms, no one has ever succeeded
in getting a photograph of such a dis
play, while many plates showing forms
of electrical phenomena not visible to
the eye because of the rapidity with
which the electric fluid takes its course
have been developed.
Here are a few of the may curious
results of lightning strokes that have
been recorded within the past few years:
In 1893 Martin Campbell of Brook
lyn was killed by a flash, and his body
was found to be marked with a ring
about the neck, as if he had been stran
gled by a hangman's noose, while cu
riously branching lines resembling the
growth of a plant ran along his chest.
These peculiar markings have been not
ed in more than one instance, and some-
times persons so marked have recovered
from the effects of the bolt. Sometimes
the lightning stroke will cure diseases,
rheumatism being the disorder oftenest
ended by this means, a marked instance
of this sort being reported from a mu
seum in New Y'ork a few years ago.
when the stroke entered the place, skip
ped three inmates, struck the fourth,
tore his clothes and left him for dead.
He recovered in a few days, and to his
joy his joints that were before distorted
with rheumatism were tf-npple and have
since remained so. A monument in a
cemetery in Lancaster, Pa., was struck
by lightning in 1891. The shaft was of
gray granite, but after the stroke it was
all white save for an irregular line ex
tending its whole length. This line ia
deep black in color arid appears to be a
concentration cf all the coloring matter
in the entire stone, which, by the way,
was left quite sound. In a house in
Rochester the leaden framings of a
stained glass window were melted and
the panes deposited on the floor, while
the glass of a massive mirror was laid
flat and unharmed on the carpet, though
the frame was quite destroyed.
It is early yet for the lightning's
freaks this year, but it has already be
gun in New Jersey. At Bridgeton the
house of Air. Zaccheus Johnston was
struck late in May. Johnston and his
wife were stunned a little, but a Mrs.
Porch was rendered senseless fox an
hour cr two, her babe was burned hor
ribly, and a gold watch under a pillow
was melted. Yet nothing about the
house took fire.

A. Poor Outlook In Delaware, Georgia snsd
the Northwest.
Special Correspondence.
Middletows, DeL, June 21. This
year's peach crop east of the Rocky
mountains will be the poorest in 10
years. Estimates that attempt to give ,
exact figures are never to be trusted,
but enough is known of the prospect
throughout the Delaware, Maryland and
Virginia peninsula to justify the proph
ecy that this region will produce less
than one-tenth of the normal crop.
That is the estimate of Thomas Budd, a
man who knows the whole peninsula,
and who has been studying the peach
question for 80 years. Many thousand
trees throughout the 130 miles of the
peninsula peach belt have been almost
destroyed. The disease called the "yel
lows" and the warm weather of March,
followed by cold and snow in subse
quent weeks, have brought about the
death of at least nina peach bud out of
ten. The June "drop" has taken an
other portion of the crop, so that, com
mercially speaking, peaches will be of
Email account this year.
The farms of the late Governor Biggs
and his sons, situated in Kent and
Queen Anne counties, Md., from which
between 40,000 and 50,000 baskets of
peaches were sold last year, it is esti
mated will yield this year only 2,000
or 3,000 baskets. The Biggs' orchards
wero greatly overestimated this time
last y?ar. There will be a few peaches
along the Chesapeake shora of the penin
sula, but the most sanguine estimate
would put the crop at less than 300,000
baskets, and many persons believe that
the peninsula will market less than one
fifth of that number.
What is true of peaches in this region
is equally true of Georgia, the western
shore of Maryland and the northwest.
The New Jersey crop is also much light
er than last -ear, and there is no really
important region in the east where there
will be a considerable crop. The region
about and below Gettysburg, or what
is known an the Cumberland valley, has
been increasing in importance as a peach
producing country, but the crop there
is almost a failure. The few peaches
that the peninsula will send to market
will be of the early varieties, the poor
est peaches that the region produces.
There will be practically no late peaches
from this region, and there ill be no
early peaches from the south. New Jer
sey must bo the chief dependence of the
east for fresh peaches, and prices will
be high.
The peninsula, which usually fur
nishes the bulk of the cheaper canned
peaches, will furnish very few this year.
The local canneries have almost ceased
to compete with those of Baltimore and
the west, but the Baltimore canneries
will be short of material this year, and
the pack will be very small. Luckily
the pack last year was unusually large,
and there is a considerable stock still on
hand. This will appreciate in value, as
properly canned peachee will keep sev
eral years without loss of flavor or oth
er damage. Should there be a good crop
of peaches next year, the shortness of
this year's crop will not be so serious a
matter, so far as the canned fruit goes,
as one might expect.
' The indications are that California
has a good crop of peaches. This has no
significance so far as the summer and
autumn markets in the east are concern
ed. California peaches, east of the Al
leghanies are the luxury of the rich,
and a questionable luxury at that, as
they reach the eastern markets injured
by cold storage and lacking the delight
ful flavor and texture of the eastern
peach. But California is really the most
important peach packing district in the
world, and the pack there this year will
be large. California preserved peaches
are delightful in flavor and a true lux
ury. They are beyond the reach of the
poor, but their price next year need
hardly be higher than usuaL
So far as the growers in Delaware and
Maryland are concerned, the peach situ
ation means hard times, but not so
great a loss as might be expected, be
cause the workingmen of the great
cities, who are the largest consumers of
peaches when the fruit is plentiful and
times are good, have no money to
throw away and would hardly buy
peaches this year at any price. A fair
crop of peaches in the east this year
would have meant the lowest prices in
a decade and exceedingly small profits
for the growers.
