It al ways makes lue cold all over, and shiv ery, like water down one's Lack, you know." "Frig-ht ?" questioned one of those ad dressed. "Oh, if I'm frightened, I scream rifcht straig-ht out, nothing can stop me I just yell. You just do!" corroborated another of the pretty conclave round the lire, with a laugh. "I never heard anything- like it; when that tramp we met yesterday in the avenue at duk sud denly addressed us, you made the wel kin rin, and pinched my arm black i'.nd blue, until I made you understand the wretched creature had only a&ked his way." There was the usual desultory chat ind exchange of confidences, between inouthf uls of muffin, concerning alanu.s. Ia.st, present and future, when a ii&nd-.-ouie woman with mischievous eyes, v ho had not' hitherto spoken, ex claimed: "Were none of you girls ever struck dumb with fright?" "What a question:" they rhorused. "Why, Mrs. Treherne, were you evex taken like, that?" "On one memorable occasion," was; the reply, while a comical expression titled about the coiners of a mouth which Venus herself might have en vied for its outlines, "1 lost the entire faculty of speech during fully ten min utes. I was struck dumb, and only found my tongue too late to be of any use." The speaker looked across at her hostess. She was met by an amused air of incredulity. "Let us hear the story, Kitty. I can't believe in your being frightened; but unbosom yourself, dt-Lir. I intend keeping you until the men come in to introduce my brother, so you've plenty of time." Amid mur murs of excited anticipation Mrs. Tre herne began: "It w as an evening like this lark and dreary, with a thick, white fog. But I'd better go back to the beginning, or you won't understand. We wete living- in Highfovdshire during the last years of my husband's lifetime, and my lream was to become an artist. I'm -orry to say it Las never been realized. "There was even at that time a school of painting near us at Treeleigh, and I soon found a lady aitist willing to teach me the rudiments. A drawback to com plete happiness in my newly-adopted vocation was the distance between our house and this woman's studio, for Mr. Treherne, much as be disliked my painting craze, as he called it, objected to my being alone about the roads stiil more; and I must admit they were un commonly dark at times. I may add also" and the droll look crept up to her eyes "he had two special bugbears. These were the artists and the models. "He declared they were all scamps and that, if 1 escaped from the arti fices of the one, I should sooner or later be garotted by the other. The male sex he more particularly referred to, but 1 must confess he hud no very high opinion of the women either. "Therefore, much as he hated his horses being out at uight, he insisted on sending the carriage for me in ail weathers.and I firmly believe the coach man had orders to give a receipt for my. person every evening. "Whether the presence of a good-looking young fellow who used to go about with one of the artists, and whose, no doubt, well-intentioned glances my husband had surprised in church, con tributed at all to this frame of mind, I never knew. Hut I had my suspicion-;, although, as a matter of fact, I never so much as spoke to the man, or heard his name. "One day in the winter, I had been working in the life class till after five, and owing to a dense fog the carriage was late. I suppose I ought to have waited for it, but the tempter in the. shape of a girl friend persuaded me to take tea in her rooms. Nor am I quite clear if directions were left at the stu dio to enable the carriage to find me. "I dare say you imagine the party 'included men. If you do, you are wrong. Whatever Mr. Treherne? thought, morals were very strict, I can tell you, in Treeleigh. "We were half a dozen girl students, of whom one played divinely on the; Velio, and it must hare been quite u i hour later before I started, my body iuard not having turned up, to trudge home in the mud alone. "I have said the roads could be very dark, but I never knew them so bad as they were on this particular evening. Lamps there were few even in the vil lage, and the fog obscured such as there were. I felt very sorry for myself on leaving th comparative illumination of the street for the utter blackness of the lonely road that lay between me and home. "I wondered where the brougham could be, and for once missed its com fortable cushions, and the inspiriting presence of our fat coachman. The fog lnetrated eyes, nose and ears. It blinded me and made me cough. "With difficulty, by aid of my um brella and the palings, I was able to keep upon the apology for a sidewalk, though in . places I literally had to crawl along as best I could. "Just at first there were people about, grown large and indistinguish able in the mist. A boy passed me whistling a popular air. I envied him his couratre 'and would have liked to imitate it. He passed on, and I felt ...rr. lonelv than ever. The tree trunks loomed like huge phantoms in the murky stillness, and the whole world seemed dead. "Then I remembered an encampment of gypsies, of whom some had posed as models, and nearly all had been up before my htisband in his capacity as magistrate, during the past month, fitipposing one of them hac" noticed my watch or rings during a sitting? The thought was appalling. "Footsteps behind me made my heart j imp into my mouth, but they died tiway in the. distance. I shuddered, stepped in a puddle up to my ankles, and, had I been a man a'nd not so r frightened, should undoubtedly have bad language. I Urul reached a hollow, the veiy darkest par of the road w here the fos lay thickest, when all at once I was con bcious of a pre-,s:de me It was exactly as if the very m.. haJ takcu shape and put its arm rouna , jvais The shock was so sudden that, for " instant, 1 felt as if struck by a dagger. My tongue clave to the roof of my mouth, and how I didn t faint on the spot has always been a mj Btery to me. "The spirit of the fog, or the high- v ay man, kept a firm hold on me, but-did not change the direction of my foot steps. - When the first intense fright gave place to a sort or semi-conscious- ness, I found myself being guided in a fashion which gave me to understand that the ghost, gypsy or garotter, w hichever it might be, at least knew the road. I no longer stepped into puddles. or scratched my hands in the hedges. but was assisted along, apparently w ithout an effort. "Why I did not cry ont is the inex plicable thing. It was doubtless that fust shock which had paralyzed my tongue, yet I was being taken to some lonely spot, there, I presumed, to be obbed or murdered, -or both, by one whom I could recognize only as . a blurred shape, if indeed it was of this world at all. "And all this while terror kept me dumb, while the thing neither relin quished nor tightened its grasp, so far not a rough one,' but held on the even tenor of its -way up the hill which, un less fright had sent my wits wool-gath ering altogether, should lead, I knew. to our own avenue. "Of course I was fullv aware that some terrible design was in the mind of my ghostly companion, and feared iest every moment should be my last. Still, with life there was hope, though I specially dreaded the by lane which branched off towards the gypsy en campment, and which we must pass di rectly. "Then a new, strange feeling crept over me. I was dreamily conscious of leaning heavily on the garotter's arm and finding it a strong one, wondering at the same time if this awful experi ence was the punishment ot my disobe dience. How- fervently I vowed that if I got safely out of this scrape, noth ing on earth w ould ever again tempt mt to risk my life after dark among fh lanes of Treeleigh. "Suddenly we stopped. I gasped still mute as a fish, and shut my eye tight. Already, in anticipation, I fel the murderous knife at my throat, th robber's hand rifling my dead body The arm around me perceptibly tight ened its grip; my heart stopped beat ing, when a deep, musical voice whit pered in my ear: 'There really ar footpads about, but you have no reaso. to be frightened. All I want from yo is one kiss to last me my lifetime.' . "Before I could recover my senses thi highwayman had pressed hi lips U my cheek. The spell was broken, opened my eyes with a piercing shriek. But he had vanished as silently, and adroitly as he had come. All I sav was the indistinct light of a lantern as our lodge-keeper opened the gate and hastened towards me. "In a dazed kind of way I reached the house without further adventure. Who my assailant had been I never knew. I assumed him to be a gypsy imperti nently retaliating on me for some cf Mr. Treherne's judgments. The voice was one I bad never heard before, but so remarkable was its low and peculiar quality, that I should recognize it again among thousands. I may add that my husband was so vexed at my missing the carriage, which had returned without me. and also at my making a show of myself by shrieking outside our own gate, that I had to give up the school and my artistic dreams forever." . The completion of Mrs. Treherne's narrative elicited a round of applause and a fire of chaff. The hostess, keep ing her eyes fixed on her friend, alone made no remark, when a noise outside betokened the return of the men from hunting. ' The door opened, and, following the host, there entered a tail, good-looking, sunburned man of about 35. Mrs. Treherne, still immersed in her reminiscences, was gazing at the fire, when her hostess' voice aroused her: "Kitty, here is my brother, who is dying to be introduced to you. He has only just returned from South Africa, where he has been ever since he left Treeleigh many years ago." Mrs. Treherne looked up with the half-interested air of a woman to whom a stranger has just been presented. She held out her hand. ... "Indeed," she said, carelessly; "do you also know that little artist colony? We were just mentioning it." . "I thought noione-evfr remembered Treeleigh but me, Mrs. Treherne. Ten years ago I carried away from there a memory that will last my lifetime." This remark, innocent enough in it self, was uttered in a particularly deep musical voice. ' Something quite un usual in its timbre arrested the atten tion of everybody present, who, as if impelled by a common impulse, looked across at Mrs. Treherne, and-it must be admitted that tbat lady gave abun dant cause for curiosity. At the first sound of the newcomer's voice she started violently, and stared at the ow n er thereof with an expression of mute dismay. She made ah effort to speak, but without success, and falling back in her chair, covered her face with her hands. .. -.-...- , y . . For an instant there was silence, then came a burst of laughter. "The Phan tom of the Mist!" they cried. Madame. THE BATH. It Was Obc. Cssxt la Italy tor Cap tad FaaUkmen s. The punishment of the bagno (bath), cue of the most cleverly cruel inflic tions ever devised by an official of the torture chamber,, was administered-Jn Italy, probably in Venice, where the w ater of the lagoons played so prom inent a part in its penal system. The prittooer waa placed in a vat, the sides of which were slightly in excess of ihe average heuht of a man. . In order to hold in check the rising tide of a supply of water, which ran into the vat in a constant stream, the criminal was furnished with a sooop with which to bale out . the , water,, as fast as it came in. - - . The respite from death by immer sion thus obtained was more or leas prolonfjed, according to the powers of endurance - possessed by the victim.. Hut, imag-ine the moral torture, the ex hausting and even hideously grots-toque eiToria, the inceesant and pitiless toil by .niht. and day, to stave. oil .the dread moment fast approaching, when, overcome by sleep and fatigue, he was unable to struggle any longer against , his fate! DRAMATIC COURT SCENE. Confea.es at Crime Taroa.s;b. Fear of Utaastly Accusation. Up in .New Hampshire the officers of the law have just used with effect that very ancient test by w hicl one ac cused of uiurder is suddenly and unex pectedly confronted with some horri ble proof of his crime. The oldest form of this test was to take the accused into the presence of the corpse of tiic murdered human being. The supersti tion was that if the accused was th murderer the wounds would open and blood flow out of them. The latest example was in the court room at Woodaville, N. H., where Milo Gray was on trial for the murder of his wife. This man Gray, a farmer of dissolute life, married a w idow, a Mrs. Drew. As he was unfaithful to her she took ber baby' and tied from him. In St pn-mbor, 1891, she decided to go to California, ait; on her way came to East Haverhill, where he lived, to talk to him about the child. Late in the afternoon Gray borrowed a buggy from a man named Jeremiah Barry to take her over to the station at Bath and put her on the train. He came back alone toward nidnigl. Mrs. Gray's relatives wondered why she never wrote to them. Inquiries wete made; Gray was suspVcted. But there wa& no proof, and the matter was for gotten. October 18 last George Brill, a farmer living on the road between East Haver hiil and Bath, found the skeleton of si -woman under a heap of rubbish in the cellar of his house. With the skeleton were the buttons of a dress, with bit of decayed cloth hanging to them, and an abundance of dark-brown hair. Al once the dead suspicion leaped to life. It was remembered that the Brill house w as empty in 1391. when Gray drove his wife to the station. Berry positively identified the . buttons as being likt. those on her dress, and soon a complete thain of evidence was wrapped around Gray. He pleaded not guilty and the trial came on. At the proper time the pros ecuting officer snatched a dark cloth from a mysterious, statue-like object that stood within a few- feet of the pris oner. Gray leaped back with a shout of fear and h error. It was the skeleton ot his wife, its fleshleas sockets staring at him, its flehless jaws opening sav agely at Lim. He shouted out that hs would tell the' whole story. The story he told was believed by the court and he got only 12 years in the penitentiary instead of the hanging ho ' would surely have got had he not con fessed under just those circumstances. Chicago Journal. REFORM WANTED. What Mia;ht ate Boa. with Mar a; Lars Wbm Mot Burgilu." The question, What shall we do with our burglars in the intervals of their convictions? has been partly solved by a man who appeared recently at the central criminal court, London. His slory, says the London News, was one tf vulgar crime in most of its details, fie had been caught breaking into a house and he was now sentenced to 12 months' hard labor. It was particular ly well deserved, as he was an old of fender. But the police were able to show that since his last release from gaol he had been geting a living by re porting inquests for newspapers. No one can ca-t the first stone at au honor able profession on that account, for was not Mr. Peace a gentleman with a gig of his own and a distinguished mu sical amateur? The more interesting question is whether the prisoner was well advised in his choice of a depart ment of press work. I u quests must be demoralizing in their tendency, as they familiarize the mind w ith crime. Fires, on the. other hand, ought to be purify ing, and a close attention to the busi ness of the police courts, with its abund ance of awful examples, should make a man four square in moral resistance to every ill wind that blows. EAT APPLES AT NIGHT. Btate-Baeat Which Keren. th. Ole Prov erb About th. rruit The apple is such, a common fruit that very few persons are familiar with its remarkably efficacious medicinal prop erties, states the Bulletin of Pharmacy. Everybody ought to know that the very best thing they can do is to eat apples just before retiring for the night. Per sons uninitiated in the mysteries of the fruit are liable to throw up their hands in horror at the visions of dyspepsia, which such a suggestion may summon up; but no harm can come even to a delicate system' by the eating of ripe and juicy apple just before going to bed. The apple is excellent brain food, be- ' cause it has more phosphoric acid in easily digested shape than other fruits. It excites, the action of the liver, pro motes., sound - and healthy sleep, and thoroughly disinfects the mouth. This is not all. The apple helps the kidney secretions and prevents . calculus growths, while it obviates indigestion and is one. of, the best-known preven tives or diseases of the throat. Every body should, be. familiar' with such knowledge,. THE INSPIRED CAMP COOK. ' Things H. Mast Kao , to Make LIT. Pleasant (or Hw Camrsses. Outing tells about ramp cookery, in cluding the cook. The genuine camp cook is an artist in his way The musi cian makes njeu hear things entrancing and the painter brings tears, to the eyes if inspired. The camp cook genius, by the very,way in which he does his work, makes men hungry'. ''.- r ' ; . "The camp cook," says the writer, "should take, pride in the artistic hand ling of his utensils, particularly in the ability to keep half a dozen things going at once; he must keep already cooked things hoir..anftcoek. the uncooked things in the meantime. To do this he has to understand the kinds of fire to have, whether .large .or small blaze, hot (.shea or., red-hot embers... lie should also know how. to get tne most work at the least expenditure of labor from his c omrades.," Something. many cooks are lacking in is the way, to keep camp dishes clean for cooking. An unwashed apple saucepan will serve to fry trout in and give Lhem a. pleasant taste, but an unwashed fish ' spider, will scarcely serve to cook apple sauce in... In other -'words, Ihe cook should know when and what to wash," j ' - -. e k r f." i-asSsvaa, , - : ---;: ' '. i ' e ' - .-. 1 I .. A WAR NOTE. CoL Jeka A. CockeriU's Happy atetort to s Uvastful BritUner. Representative Mercer, of Nebraska, met the late Col. John A. Cockeriil dur ing his trip through Japan about a ear ugo, says the Washington Post. Cock eriil was then acting as war corresou- dent for the New Y'ork Herald. Repre sentatives of all nations gathered at Yokohama, many of them tourist-s and others on business. It was at this time that Cockeriil ran across a cockney Briton, who was boasting about the great prowess of his country, and making rather slighting allusions to the United States, lib remarks aroused CockeriU's war spirit, and he told the Englishman that inasmuch as the Unit ed States bad twice whipped England it could probably do so again. "O ah my deah sah!" said the doughty Briton, "y ou ah mistaken, sure ly. If I remembah the history of my country we took yah capitol and burned it, don't you k now T' "Yes," said Cockeriil, "you did take the capitol. And if I remember the his tory of my country you also took Bunk er Hill. But you didn't take it very far. You let go of both of them like a red-hot brick, and at last accouuts they were still in our possession. But let me tell you what we'll do next time we have a war with you.

Attention is called to that interesting person the. prince of Muuui-u by the fact that the president of the French republic has jut paid him a visit, says the New York Journal. Monaco is a principality within the borders aud uuder the domination of a republic, and its internal government is at the saute time a despotism compared to which the prince has himself said that of the czar's is mi'd. His revenues from the gambling ta bles of Monte Carlo are very large. The principality is eight square miles iu extent and! includes the old and pictur esque town of Monaco and the wicked Lut beautiful Monte Carlo. The prince legislates with the aid of such advisers as he chooses and a law goes into force by his decree solely. The name of the royal family is Grimraldi and it has reigned for 900 years. The present prince, Albert, is 43. He married first a sister of the duke of Hamilton. Eleven years later he was divorced for reasons that are not publicly known, the pope consenting to annul the mar riage, a very unusual proceeding. The prince afterward married the widow of Due de Richelieu, w ho is also a kins woman of the poet Heine. OUT OF PURE PHILANTHROPY. Vaapprecisvtod Kladasu of a Considerate Old tieatlenuka. About four o't lock the other after noon a half-dozen members of the Tioga wheelmen started from the clubhouse for a spin down to Point Breeze, says the Philadelphia Record. As they curved their wheels out of Yerango street and into Broad street a tall, portly and pompous man of middle age, an-1 with mustaches waxed a la militaire, stepped out into the roadway, aud in a voice full of command yelled: "Stop!" The cyclists instantly dismounted. "What's the matter?" inquired one. "You've-got no lamps on your wheels," said the pompous man. "Why, you must have wheels in your head," replied one of the riders; e don't have to carry lamps in daylight." "Say, are you a bi cycle cop? Where's your star?" asked another wheelman. "I beg your pardon, gentlemen, if you took me for a police man you owe me an apology. Out of pure kindness I stopped you to call your attention to the fact that it will be dark in a few hours, and I should hate to see such nice looking fellows run in for riding without a light. By the way. gentlemen, I am introducing a new and improved bicycle lantern, warranted not to go out in the stiffest wind or over tne roughest road. Throws a brilliant " "Come off! Is that what you stopped us for?" Certainly. I can khowiyou testimonials Scat! Scat ter! . Y'ou're-occupying our air!" and away the wheelmen went down Broad street. MAKING ONE'S Wl Li lt oethuasr USasac oa the M lad as a Daty boae. The making of one's will does not hasten one's death; on the contrary, it has a calming and soothing influence upon the mind. A person who has done it feels that he has done his duty, says the New York Mercury, that he is so far prepared to die. He has no burden upon his mind, in reference to what he shall do in sick ness. When sickness comes he has no regrets on this subject; he has done his best to prepare for the inevitable hour. If he has made his will aright be has attempted to do good in his death as well as in his life. This is not only a reminder that every luan who has property to dispose of should make his will, but also that those who can do so without injury to their natural heirs should give a certain por tion of their property for the public benefit. . No man has got wealth with out receiving it from society at large. It is the growth of population, it is the general industry of the country from which he has benefited. He could not have got his wealth in an unor gauized society. , Society has done much for him. Let him do something for society when he dies. The time will come when a man will not feel himself to be dying credit ably who does not die generously. Cooking; Lb Aluminum. Experiments, made in Germany are reported to have shown tbat aluminum is particularly suited for use in kitchen utensils, because it is not liable, like copper, to communicate any poisonous ingredient to the food. The use of such utensils is already quite common in this country and is increasing. Chadkl- th. Celibates.

What Produce. lHaromfort la a Crowded Koosu. A verv iuiiortaut investjiraii.n Jn1t the nature of the substances contained in air expired by human beimrs, says the 1mhKii Graphic, has just l.-en completed by two prominent nit-n of svieuce in America. Dr. J. S. Billitiirs and Dr. S. Weir Mitchell. As a result of their extended researches they de clare that "the discomfort produced by crowdexl, ill-ventilated rooms, in per sons not accustomed to them, is not due to the excess of carbonic acid, nor to bacteria, nor in most cases to dust of auy kind. The two great causes of such discomfort, though not the on! ones, are excessive tern perat tires and unpleasant odors." But thoutrh tin air actually expired by healthy men and animals contains no more i .ti -ous substances than carbonic acid gas. experiments on the air in inhab'te. rooms and hospiUiL wards an- said to show- that an important source of om tamination is the minute p.-irtiel.-s of dusts, in which there are nii-r-oriran-isms, and it seems probable that these are the only really dangerous element in the air. TLew views, and ihe con clusion that the presence of carlnie acid gas is not a trust worthy criterion of the existence of other and more i sonous exhalations, are likely to lie questioned by many students of ventila tion. THE RICHEST MAN'S WIFE. 8osb. Auoailna; Truths About Mtrrhhtoru Id and Her Home. Of the wife of Li Hung Chatiir. mil lionaire of millionaires, a writer in Pearson's Weekly says: Marchioness Li is very beautif ul, and, compared wit a her fellow-countrywomen, an e---l-ingly learned lady. Her age is more possibly a great deal more than 5t, yet she looks 30, or even less. The wife of the richest man in tht world, she send.s royally, although without koepiug a detaiied account of her expenditures. In her magnificent home on the banks of the Pei-Ho she lived in great splendor, surrounded by song birds, peacocks, aquaria, pottery, gems and botanical collections. Oue thousand attendants and serv ants answer her beck aud call. In ber wardrole are guarded 2.0oO coats, 1.2i pairs of "trouserettes" and .VK1 fur robes, made from the finest skins. Her feet have been conipressed until they are quite inefficient for the original purpose, and the marchioness is unable to walk more than a few yardsjit u time.. Twice a day she bathe in oil of orange and actcia blooms and after ward takes an airing in the coolie sediin. Finally she dresses her hair in 5 w ays, each more miraculous and a more perfect example of the coiffeur's art than the one that goes liefore. tta,roato aod Ills I at nil lord. South Africa naturally recalls F.ar ney Barnato. the "diamond king," who, wit hill ten years, has risen from a circus clown to a mauv times millionaire. When he was just tt-giuniug toaniass riches he reuted a house in Natal and spent considerable money in improv-intr it. But the landlord would not do his share, so Mr. Barnato decided to mow. Lefore doing so he took means to get even with his landlord by inserting t his advertisement in the local aper: "Wanted, lOO.OOO black beetles, by a gentleman w ho has agreed to leave his dwelling house in the coudition he found it." Then followed his name and address, and the landlord's feelings may be imagined. Golden Days. Th.

BaUoaa Racing In Paris. Balloon racing is the latest form of petty gambling in Paris. A number of toy balloons are set off at the same time, each bearing a postal card having on it the umpire's addrt-csaud a request to the finder to note the time and place of the balloon's arrival. Bets are paid and the stakes awarded on the results of the replies received v ithin a week. The balloon that, goes furthest in the short est time gets the prize. ' An Old Custom. The custom of having days "at home" is by no means new. It was prevalent in Queen Anne's time, when the ladies were "at home" once a week to their friends of both sexes and called it a "day" Just as we do. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.

Itiidon Quarterly Review. HOW TO WRITE A PLAY. It Is ljr Loouiih If too Follow This Out line. As a general thing the plays prtdwtd at the theaters these days are enough alike to create the impression that one man wrote all of them. The heroine, says the Atchison tilt.be. a foundling, is adopted by jn-ople who once bad a daughter who ran off and disappcatfJ. The illain discovers that the foundling is iu reality the grandchild of l.er foster parents, ami makes up his mind U marry her to get the old folks money, lie plots to get the hem, w ith vv lan.i the heroine is in love, out ttf the way', lie charge him with murder, or wiih forgery (there the vv riter has a chance; to vary his plot a little bit; he can have forgery t-night and murder tomor row night ) and the hero is put iu jail. The sotihrrtte ami the funny man un earth the plot, li Iterate the hero, accuse the villain, who confesses all. and in the last scene the old jieople fiud their grandchild, the heroine and her lover arc united, the soubrclte and the funny man agree to tie up, and the villain shoots himself. Those who are ambitious to become play-writers will find iu these details all the ingredients necessary to mix up for a jtopular play. To Free hen Silk Motile em. A very easy and charming way to freshen a black, white or colored silk or satin bodice is to cover it with an over-waist of chiffon the shade of the bodice, or. if liked, of a contrasting color. As there are neither darts nor f,ide seams, this airy drainry is easily adjusted, and to finish the waist, ore can purchase in any of the f amy dry goods house accordion-plaited or crimped chilTon frills iu white, black, cream and fancy colors, with Persian, ribtton or lieaded edges. Shoulder straps of satin riblton efirried down the front and back would serve to keep the fullness of the eh iff on in place, thus giving a slender look to the figure. fct. Louis Republic . .
