I .ate in May, 1S7(". when his neiphbors were savinp (heir dolktrs to po to Phil adelphia, he tKk his dip ii"t timl went tloAvn toward the 1 oy, hoptnp to exit eh :i few smelts.

In a few weeks it had devoured all the swimming ar.d creepinp thinps that made thei home in th- sprirp. antl bcp.tn to hvd tfi Zcb f - r sustenance. Hy enrrv'iipoi' t.hopf.ed r.tent antl scraps from th tjibh whenever he went after a pail of water. Zeb soon tamed the fish .s.a it would come and take the food from his hands.

One day when he v. as fet llnp unusually poor a nc:phbor rs-:fd him why he did not sell Ruther ford to the fish hat -hery. Zeb eotild ?'t'i ndure the thonphtof jnrtin? with bis ,"sh.

Rutherford was take-; in a lub t" the hatchery and Zeb went home with ?."J.!if in his pocket. He was very -fd all thronph hajinp. In Aupnst. hen his prass was in the barn, he went fitter lx-rries. In his travels he came to the print pond where the hatchery fish are confined. lie was pickinp lwrries ar.d whistlinp an old tune when lie heard a splash in the water. This was followed by another and another, until a preat. shininp salmon dashed airainst the ImwH ripht nt his feet. Zeb knew at once that it was Rutherford. He fed h:s pet with a few berries from his n;il and went home to iwss a bad nipht. TlKiuph ) foupJit. biavely, the temp tation was stronp. and the next day Rut he r ford w as st.len from the pond and put back in t he sprinp. Fortune was kindto Z"b for three vears, but in 1ST!) a fever broke out in bis family that tok his last cent and left him in debt- In his nt raits he apain t-Kk Rutherford to the. hatchery and offered him for sale. Mr. Ttuck looked l he fish ocr, and, turninp up t lie back of its dorsal fin. showed a tiDV bronze tap which was attaelutl to Rutherford's lack with a plat inuin wire. "This fi-sh has been here ln-fore," rvaid Mr. Ruck. "There is my tap. No. 2?.. Wait a minute wlule. I kwk up this record." Zeb's knees knocked topf.her with fear while.

Zeb pot $.f. fir the fish, live weipht. ar.il reeeiveI one dollar extra as lounty on the tap, and went, home ferlinp uneoromonly well. "If von ever catch him apain," said Mr. I'.uck, "and the tap is s t il on him, brinp hir.i here ar.d I'll pive you the hiphTst market price and another dol lar in bounty." " - The iKiilinp sprinp above the.Larn wa-s emptv until December. IJy this time Zcb'nnd his w ife pn w so done some that he made another unlawful journev to the hatchery pond. For two vears Rutherford was undisturlied. Ir. June, 11, Zeb felt the need of new hayinp tools so keenly that Mr. Ruck iKinpht Rutherford apain. He weiphed 2ii jiounds, which, at 25 cents ti jiound. yielded five dollars, and the bounty swelled the sum to an even six dollars. After this Rutherford was taken and sold buck every year or two thouph Zeb never received so much for him at anv one time as he did in 1SS1. Price varied accordinp to the season and the plentif ulness of salmon, but averaped alumt 2( cents a HVund, takir.p one year with another. Thouph Rutherford was fed well, Zeb knew that his fish was shrinkinp in weipht every year, lle- tween 1SS1 and ISyu he had pone dow n from 20 to 12 pounds, despite the best of care. He was not sick or melancholy nt anv time, but the fountains of life were slowly wastinp away under the combined influence of much niovinp and old ape. Jlurinpthe financial anic of lS03Zeb felt considerably eneouraped. Jn 1S1I2 he hiwd sold Rut lier ford, who weiphed ten jiounds. for 15 cents a iiound. re eeivinp with the liounty $2.5(1. A year later he took Rutherford to Mr. Ruck and pot ?2.SO for him. Rutherford's weipht had not chanped an otituf, but the price of salmon had pone up three cents on the pound. This pave Zeb preat Iiojh-s for the future. Fish were l-.np livetl, and it was possible that Rutherford haviup reached the turninp jioint, would now fat. up and earn mon money. He was doomed to bitt-r dis apHiiiitiiierkts for when he sohl him in 1U4 the s-ales could not be induced to tip beyond the nine-pound notch. Tempt inp foods were broupht to him durinp the w inter of 1804-115, and fjir month or more he seemel to rally, ITut with the advent of warm weather cami a relajise that reduced his weipht to t-ipht pounds, when Mr. Ruck boupht him for the lnth time. Zeb allowed Rutherford to remain in the jKiid until the day previous to turn nip all the old fish loose into the net. lcfore he took him home in t he autumn of 1n!.'5, Impinp that the chanpe would cheer him up and prolonp his days. For awhile he seemed lwtter, althouph his apetite was pone and dainty fropt broitpht from other sprinps at the mountain's lose disjortHl themselves aliout him daily, apiwrently knowinp that Rutln-rford could do them no harm. Durinp the cold of winter he stirred aliotit very little. Selectinp a sjiot a-, here the water constantly bubbled up. he lay in a shower of polden mica scales, seeminply oblivious toeverythinp. To ward summer, when the early mosqui toes laid their lioat loads of fresh pps. he fed sparinply Uoii the tender wip plers and then moved away to the sIkmIcs of an overhanp:np elm root, as if the sunlipht made him weary. For i Month he remained here, refusinp t come when Zeb called him and takinp no heed of the 1 hrobbinp new lifewhieli June had enpendered. Then came th end. 1-iirly in July Zeb went to live sprinp to pet water for his morninp coffee, and saw Rutherford floatinpon top tf the water. Zeb picked him in carefully and found he had been dead .several liours. Zeb put the liody on the scales for the last time, and iliscovered that Ruther ford had shrunk away to less than threi pounds. Then he wrapped him in a cloth arid buried him in the pardci. uinonp the sweet jieas. Ixiter, with thf aid of chalk and shinple, h added ti Rutherford's earninps, and learned that by selhnp luni 11 times to the same man he had obtained $52.(Hi, which is probably a larper amount t lian ever w ax paid for any other salmon. llanpor News.

Four iithletie younp pirks find daily employment at a small coal mine in the Mahoninp valley, several miles from Shamokin, says the Atlanta Constitu tion. The colliery is owned and o; erated by Joseph Mans, a hard-work-ilip (Jerman, who says he has simply in troduced the custom of his fatherland in havinp his four daughters assist him in preparing the find for market. The pirls are six-footers, pood look inp a:id well formed, each tipping the scales at about 2Ml pounds. Kate, aped 2( years, has charge of the. breakers; Annie, aped lf, runs its mine pumps anil breaker enpinea like a veteran en pineer; Lizzie, aped IS. drives a mule attached to a irin for the piirose of hoisting the coal from the slope, and Marv. arred 19. sees that the slate is picked from the coal by her little broth ers, whom F.he helps in the work. The cirls wear short skirts, not bloomers, as mipht lie supposed. Mans formerly worked in the mines at Shamokin, but durinp the last 12 years, with the assistance of his wife, who runs the farm, and their da uphters at the mine, he has managed to buy this coal mine and a large amount of timber land besides. A Performance of Kst Lynac" by Col ored Ac-tore. There are not mary public entertain ments in Saratoga, xc-ept such as the hotels supply; but there was a series of Salvation Army meetings, and there was at least one theatrical performance a erformanee of "Fast Lynne" en tirely by people of color. Tne senti ments and incidents of the heart breaking melodrama, as the colored mind interpreted them, were of very curious effect. It was as if the version were dyed with the same pigment that darkened the players skins; it all came out negro. Yet they had tried to make it white; I could jierceive how they aimed not at the imitation of our na ture, but at the imitation of our con tention; it was lik.e the play of children in that. I should have said that not li mp could lie more false than the mo tives and emotions of the drama as the author imagined them, but I had to own that their rendition by these sin cere souls was yet more artific:al. There was nothing traditional, noth inp archaic, nothing nutochthonie in their oor art. If the scene could at any moment have resolved itself into a walk-round with an interscrsion of "spirituals" it would have hail the charm of these; it would have con sole.! and edified; but as it was I have seldom leen so liored. I Ix-pan to make some sad reflections, as that. our American society, in its en deavor for the effect of Kuropean so ciety, was of no truer ideal than these colored comedians, and I accused my self of a final absurdity in having come there with these young jieople, who, accordinp to our good native usage, could have come perfectly well w it hunt me. At the end of the first act 1 broke into their talk with my conclusion that we must not count the histrionic talent among the gifts of the African tace just yet. We could concede them music, I supKsed, and there seemed to le hope for them, from what some of them had done, in the region of the plastic arts; but apparently the stage was not for them, and this was all the stranger Iiecause they were so imita tive. Perhaps, I said, it was an excess of self-consciousness which prevented their giving themselves wholly to the art. I pave myself to the study of the tyies aliout me, and I dwelt lonp and luxuriously upon the vision of a florid and massive matron in diaphanous eveninp dress, whom I imagined to be revisiting the plimjises of her girl hood in the ancient watering-place, and to lie getting all the gayety she could out of it. These are tlie figures one mostly sees at Saratopa; there is very little youth of the present- day there, but the youth of the past aliounds, with the lielateel yellow hair or the purple mustaches, which pive. a notion of greater w ickedness in a former penera t ion I made my observation that the dress, even in ext reme eases of elderly prime, was very good in the ease of the wom en, I mean; the men there, as cvery- w herewith us, were mostly slovens; and I was glad to find that the pood fast. and the correct fashion were without a color-line; there were some mulatto ladies present as stylish as their white sisters, or step-s,isters. The most amiable of the human race is in great force at Saratoga, where the vast hotel service is wholly in its hands, and it had honored the effort of the comedians that night with a full house of their own complexion. We who were not of it showed strangely enough in the dark mass, who let us lead the applause, however, as if doubt ful themselves where it ought to come in. and whom I found willinp even to share some misplaced laughter of mine. They formed two-thirds of the audience on the floor, and they were a cloud in the gallery, scarcely broken by a gleam of white. V. I). Howells, in Century. THE DIVINE NAME. FOR YOUR HEALTH.

Wise, president of the He brew I'nion college at Cincinnati, has given his view of the ancient Jewish rendering of the name of the Ieity, re Krts the New York Sun. He says that the term "Jehovah," the ineilable tetra grauiniaton. is never pronounced by many Israelites. They use the word "Ailonoi," which signifies "the I.ord." The translators of the Hible followed this riislmu, rendering the word "Je hovah" as "Ixird." In ancient times the Pharisees replaced the tet rap ram ma ton by Shem; they used "Sliemo," which is also Riblical, as the sacred name, and this name is yet retained, to sonu extent, among the Jews, lint it would apiear from passages in the Psalms that Adonoi. or Ixrd. for Je hovah was more ancient even than the times of the Pharisees. It thus occurs eight times in Psalm lxxxiv. It also ap-s-ars in the hook of Exodus where "Je hovah" .had lieen used in the original Hebrew. This sulistitution would seem to be older than any other, and it is yet common among all Jews. Dr. Wise says he has found that the ancient translations testify in favor of "Adonoi." Looking at the English translation of the Old Testament it will be found that the name Jehovah appears in the books of Genesis, Exodus. Judges, the Psalms ami Isaiah. It is not in the New Testament.

A laborer once wrote to Lord Charles IJeresford saying that his wife had just had twins a boy and a girl and he wanted to call one "Lord Charles Itoresr ford llrown" and the other "Princess of Wales Brown." Lord Charles gave his permission, and obtained that of th:. princess. Four months later the man wrote again: "I am happy to inform you that 'Lord Charles Reresford llrown' is well and strong, but that 'Princess of Wales Brown died this morning." Lord Charles is 'a man of few- words, and those very much to the - point. Speaking in the house of com mons one day, in reference to the Arab siave leaders, he said, with great em phasis: "Mr. Rpeater, we ought to catch these men. give 'em a fair trial, and then hang 'em." Unconventional Lord Charles has always been. Receiv ing an invitation to dinner at Marl Itorongh house one evening, he replied by wire: "Sorry can't come. Lie fol lows by post." Strand Magazine. "Robert," said Mr. Vyse. slow'y, gaz ing fixeelly at the young clerk, "1 have no doubt that it is you who have rolt4ed me." The liot blood flooded Roliert Acland's neck and fa-e as he took in the meaning of the words. "I swear to you. sir," he cried, pas sionately, "that you wrong me I swear it by my soul!" "I wish I could lielieve you, Roliert." Mr. Vyse replied, "for I like you; but. unfortunately, appearances aie too much against you. What, may I a-k. were you doinp at five o'clock yesterday evening in my private room? You had no right or business to lie there." Nor was I." returned the young fel low, proudly, drawing himself up to his full height. "I have never l-en in this rtKim in my life except w hen you have sent me. Has anyone told you that I was here last evening, sir?" "Yes, Roliert; your comrade, Richard Starkie. assured me of it not ten min utes apo." "Richard Starkie!" exx-lainied Acland. in preat wonderment. "Why, he mut lie mad. What can have jossescl him to t'll so wicked a falsehood? We have always ln-en pood friends, he and I. Why should he thus try to ruin me?" The words, the tone, were those or an innocent man. Xlr. Yvse ltcpan to waver in his opinion as to Acland-, guil. "Roliert," he said, more kindly, "will you swear to me liefore t,od that you are innocent?" Raising aloft -his ripht hand. "I call the tiod liefore w hose judgment throne we lioth shall one day stand to witness that I am guiltless." he declared, s l emnly. "Surely, sir, you w'.U believe in' now?" Mr. Yvse held out his hand. "Yes, Roliert. I lielieve you," he said, "and leg your pardon for having doubted you; but what Starkie's motive in tra ducinp you has lieen I am at a loss to understand." "So am I, sir," answered Acland. "His conduct is quite reprehensible." "Well, Robert," wound up the old gentleman, as he dismissed his clerk, "you must promise- me one- thing that you will treat Starkie just the same as if nothing unusual had occurred. Il isinv wish." "I will try, sir, but it will lie a hard task," Acland replied, as he quitted th" room. Of course the news that their em ployer had lieen roblx-d ran like wild fire through the small community. It was Richard Starkie' who first marie public the ill news for no official inti mation of it was pi ven; but to his fellow-workers he dare not try to incrim inate young Acland. for Acland was a favorite with his colleagues, and Stai kie knew well that any remark sug gestive of his guilt would lx received in stony silene-e the silence of sheer dis belief. That evening Rob Acland went to see Elsie Yeiiner, the girl of his hear!. There was no actual engagement be tween them, but Elsie understood quhe well that Rob was only Availing for a rise of salary In-fore asking her tei In- his wife. He had intended to tell her not h ing alieiut what had occurred at th' office during the day, but the quick- witteel girl soon saw that something was amiss, and taxed him with it. And after a little hesitation on his part and a little pressing on hers the whole story came out. "I cannot think, darling." finished Itob, "what has induced Starkie to do it." "Shall 1 tell you?" said Elsie, demurely. "You?" i "Yes. I. I can. you know." And then she proeecdenl ton late hew Richard Starkie had a few da s liefore asked her to marry him. and. on her refusal, flown into a violent rage, not only heaping anathemas on her head, but also on Rob. "And you lielieve be has attempted to lay the theft at my thior to blacken my charaeter in your eyes? What a scoun drel the fellow must lie!" "If you had swn the look on his face when he left me." replied the girl, "you would think, as I do, that he is caablc of anything." Next, day Hob Acland repeated to Mr. Yvse the ron versa t ion he had held with Elsie Yenner. Meanwhile Richard Starkie was in a very unhappy frame of mind. He bail just, sufficient manhood left to lie aide to appreciate the unutterable currish ness of his own conduct. Rut that did not tend to make him sorry for what he had done. No. it rather embittered him still more against his rival. A mania for gambling, inherited from his father, who had liet away a large estate dur ing his life, dying only just in time to save himself from actual starvation, had in the first instance made him short of money. In order to retrieve his iosition he liet still more heavily, and again lost. Ill lue-k pursued him from day today, till at last, unable to meet the demands made iqion him. exposure stared him in the face; antl exposure, he knew, meant iiromnt dismissal from Mr. Yyse's service. In this dilemma he stole tin cash box. and it was only w hen gloat ing wer its contents that the idea of sad dling Acland with the theft occurred to him. Irresolute in this, as in every thing else, he wavered some time, lie fore finally deciding to commit this last niece of villainy, luit Ins evil genius, as always, prevailed. 'Tune the fellow!" he ground out between his clenched teeth. "If only 1 can ruin him! If only I can make Elsie despise and loathe him! What is he that he should steal her from me? I'll aa in her yet in spite of him." It was Mr. Yyse's custom to go for a walk, unless the day was very wet, le iween the hours of 12 ami 1. He usnally went down the high road straight out of the town for a mile, returning home over the fields and through a small plan tation. A few days after the loss of the cash lox. be took the accustomed path. Dot. his favorite dog. half jMiintcr, half retriever, &cconiKiiiMd him. In the middle of the plantation Dot sud denly sniffed the air, then bounded in among the brushes, and ieiinted. "Dot! Dot!" called his master. "Here. got si dog, come liack." But Dot hit! evidently found something, antl refused to lie shouted off. Mr. Vyse made his way to where the dog was standing. Up sprang a fine rabbit and dashed away, Dot in hot pursuit. Rut Mr. Yvse heeded neither rabbit nor dog. His gaze was riveted on the place from which the rabbit had jumpeti. Thus for a moment or two. he stood, then, with a ecH.ar smile on his fa-e, he wheeled round and walked briskly home. Some three days later Richard Starkie was summoned to bis chiefs presence. He went, trembling, fearing be knew not what. "Starkie." said Mr. Vyse, "you have lieen in my employ longer than an other of my cWks, therefore I think i only right to make you my sokesman to them. I wish you. then, to tell them on my liehalf that 1 attribute the dis-apK-aran-e of my e-ash lw to none of them, that I am quite convinced of their innocence." Richard Starkie paled slightly. Had his sc heme to ruin young Acland falN-d miserably after all? It seemd so. P.'i, he replied, with aparent frankness; "I am very pleased to hear that Roller Acland has cleared himself, sir." "He has done so most completely," re joined Mr. Yvse. "I have a very high opinion of Acland. Starkie." "So hsive I. sir," he returned glibly, while he inwardly cursed the man to whom he soke thus laudingly. "It has caused me great ain to think that he could jiossibly lie a thief." "Is it possible that this man is inno cent after all?" wondered Mr. Vvm. "1 f not. his hyocrisy is simply astound ing; but I shall soon know the truth." And a grim smile passed over his face. "Just one thitig more," continued Mr. Yvse. looking straight into his clerk's eyes, w hich met his own unflinchingly, "and this is fer your ear alone. Starkk ; in the theft of my cash liox I liavr sus tained a far greater hiss than anyone but myself is aware of. It is a lm of jieculiar construction in fact, it had a false 1 nit torn, anil in that false lwttoui. Starkie, there were notes to the valu-? of J"7ot) i jlad placed them there on'y two days liefeire I was rohlied." "Of course, vou have the numbers, sir?" "Why, yes, I have the numbers, Sta.--kie; but an expert thief antl I imagine from the coolness and audacity of the robbery that I have lieen the victim of one finds no difficulty in changing stolen pajM-r. He knows where to take it and obtain a good price." When Richard Starkie went back to his colleagues to give them their em ployer's message, his breast was torn iiy two motions bafflenl spite and gr-e-l of further gold. "I will destroy him yet." he thought of Itob Acland. "He's escawd me for awhile, but it shall not lie for lonp. Elsie Yenner shall never lie his w ife. I am a pood plotter, friend Rab. and thouph you wriggle out of my hands a hundred times, 1 will have you the hun dred and first. "Poor old buffer" his mind r vertinp to the man whose presence he had just left "you little guessed that in making a confidant of me you were telling the thief how to further enrich himself.

Markbv's pettinp very restive for his money, and I could pay him and still have a nice little balance in hand. You're in luck? way, Dick, my lioy; for tune favors vou." If to lie standing In the dark on the brink of a lweciiiice without knowinc t is to lie in luck's way. then Richard Starkie was, indeed, in that enviable o-sition. MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS.

Hndran Valley Tears Find a Market All Over the World Value of the trap. The Hudson valley of New York has long been conceded to be the greatest pear-produc"ng country in the world, supplying almost entirely not only New York. Boston and Philadelphia, but many EurojH-an cities. Iist year the Hudson valley pear crop was unusually large, selling for several million dollars Rally this sprinp the outlook for a fair production was very encouraging until the buds liegan to oK-n, when the tenietocer occllana" or "bud moth" and the "leaf roller" liegan their destructive work, destroying fully half the crop, eating into the heart ef the bud. Few jieople have an idea of thelaoor ami -xieiise entailed in handling the ear croj. Between New York and Al bany immense numliers of people are now employed picking and shipping ea rs. While the Hudson valley pears are not so smooth and attractive as those of California, they are more highly ap preciated and are of superior flavor. Generally the pears are sold to com mission men before they axe ripe. Canada last year took about one-half of the states entire crop at f 2.50 per bar rel. New York and Boston this year pet two-thirds of the crop at three dol lars ier barrel. As soon aa the pears are picked they are barreled and shipped, in New York le-inp sold by the liarrel w ithout dump ing. In Liverriool the sales are conduct ed differently. Wing sold entirely at auction and bringing five dollars per liarrel. Bart lefts do not stand transportation very well, consequently very few of them are shijqied abroad. Liverpool is furnished with the Kieffer or more hardy variety, but not equal in flavor to the Rartlett. The ear industry in the Hudson valley is in its infancy, not withstanding that it produces a large ercentage of the world" fruit for there are thousands of ax-rea of youag trees not yet liearing and many thou sands more are leing planted annually. At the present rapid rate of increase in fruit growth and culture Hudson country ieople predict that before many y ears the Hudson valley will lie a gigantic orchard, extending from one end of the state to the other and capa ble eif furnishing a bountiful supply of fruit for the entire world.
