U, CJH UbV BVI small, thin body, w a s an ri . . i hanging throw ing its light down on his shock of grizzled hair, and casting caTernons shadows from his beetling brows, beneath which those eyes of his cave forth a red sparkle; and his bis;, irregular nose dividing his visage like a spur of a mountain be tween two valleys; and the lips of his great grim mouth working and puckering as he sucked at his black pipe as he sat there in bis high-backed oaken chair, beside a table piled up with rare and ancient books, and strange ornaments from China and India, and with a small but finely-formed skull carefully mounted on an ebony stand, and so placed that it had the air ot whispering in his ear as he sat there, I say, he looked less like an ordinary man than like a wizard of the Dark Ages, or even like one of tbe demons that such wizards were wont to evoke. Of course, as everyone knows, Dr. Hok xiagel is nothing of the kind; for though he Let this be the proof that you care for come tcith me. probably knows more than all the wizards of antiquity put together, be is at th'e same time one ot the best and kindest-hearted of men if common report be worth anything. But that fairy-like body the contrast be tween it and tbe head is certainly very singular. An ogre and an elf combined to form a man that is how you would de scribe him. ills bands are lite a woman s, white, small, and beautifully shaped; and lie wore on one of his fingers a costly sap phire ring, snch as a lady might wear. "'Ve had been discussing the skull. "It is a woman's, then?" said I. "Yes; and a very lovely woman she was. too," replied Dr. Boknagel, in his deep but i exquisitely modulated tones. "Canyon judge from the skull of tbe beauty ot the face?" I exclaimed. "Perhaps not; at any rate, I do not in this case." "Do vou mean to say you actually knew her?" I demanded, with a chill of the nerves. Even the most benevolent doctors will sometimes do odd things that make or dinary persons' flesh creep. "Well, at all events, I know she was a beauty," he said. And, after puffing at his pipe a while, he continued: "It's a curious story, and you might as well hear it. You remember Daventry?" "Sot Daventry who married Miss Sal ton stall, the heiress, and went mad?" "That's the man Edward Daventry. My specialty is mental diseases, you know, and I signed the order committing him to the asylum. That was ten years ago. He died last week." "Only last week! I had supposed him dead for years." "Death is a name applied indiscrimi nately to several different phenomena. Now you knew Daventry who married Miss Saltonstall; but I knew him before that event long before. And I happen to know that Miss Saltonstall was not the first lady" "Ah! An earlier romance! Do let me hear about it." "There is not much to that There was a girl let us call her Francesca; her family name does net concern us. She was a lovely creature, of a style quite unlike Miss Saltonstall. Daventry was then barely 20; she a year or two younger. She loved him with all her heart He well, he conceived a passion for her. It was understood she understood that they were to be married. But she took too much for granted, and granted too much. You know the way of the world. There are times when the wo man is as much to blame as the man. All I will say is, that this was not one of those times. Daventry was then a young fellow in a country town, with no prospects in par ticular. An unexpected circumstance gave him a good opportunity to enter business in Kew York, and he went, leaving Francesca behind. Well, it had to be! And within a year he had the satisfaction, such as it was, of hearing that she was dead." How the doctor's eyes did glow! He looked terrible at that moment 'Daventry had, I believe, already made the acquaintance of Miss Saltonstall, and it was not lone before they were openly en rared to be married. There was no ambigu ity about.tbat arrangement You may sup pose, if you like, that Daventry was really in love this time. At all events, he acted as if he were. He hardly ever let the girl out of his sight She couldn't complain of lack of devotion. They were married a great wed ding. You remember it. A handsome couple. All New York looking on. All the girls en vying her; all the young fellows him. So ofi" tfiey went on their honeymoon." Ine doctor sucked hard and fast at his black pipe, until he, and the little white skull, and the pile of antique volumes, were all enveloped in a gray mist of smoke. "Daventry became proverbial for work. Everything he took hold ot went well. His wife bad a million to "her dowry, so there was no need for him to work; but be did work, and it was thought greatly to his credit that be did so. He went into all sorts of schemes: they all turned to gold as soon as he touched them. He kept a fine house in town, another at the seaside, another in California. He and his wife were always on the top in society, always stirring, al ways entertaining; and yet Daventry never lost hii grip on any of his schemes. People said there never was snch a man; wonderful head! astonishing genius! They had no children children are hardly fashionable but people sometimes asked where all these millions were going. Never mind; thev kept piling up railroads, telegraphs, coal, (run cilvpritll contributing to make Dav entry rich. No skeleton in his closet; no r--zzy .

"The happiest men sometimes make mis takes. Daventry made one he overworked himself. One day he came to consult me. I examined him; told him to let up. HVsaid he couldn't I asked him if he wanted soft ening of tbe brain? That startled him threw him off his gnard. He began to talk about himself; said he was the most miser able wretch on earth. Hated his wife; she hated him. Fought together like a couple of scorpions. No children, no peace, no rest Wanted to kill her. and himself, but was afraid to die. I asked him why? He gave me a look a ghastly look and went ont "The seventh anniversary of their wedding came round. Tosbow how happy they were, they arranged to give a great recep tion ana Dan. snen preparations never were known. Invitations were sent out two months in advance. Preparations going on in the house for three weeks. It was in winter, but the halls, staircases and rooms were smothered in flowers. .For supper, all the things nicest to eat and drink, and hardest to get. Favors for the dance cost enough to buy a city lot gold, silver and diamonds Eight hundred people came; the best in New York, and only the best. Until 12 o'clock Daventry and his wife stood under a marriage bell receiving their guests. There they stood, smiling, bowing and shaking hands, the type and example of blessed and prosperous wedlock. Ah, a fine sight! "After midnight they left their place and mingled with tbe guests. It was like a fairy palace everywhere perfume, color, "sparkle, beauty, mnsic. They say, so many beautiful women were never before seen togeth er in New York. Daventry was fond of beautiful women. He went about chatting and langhing first with one and then with another. Everybody re marked, bow un commonly well he looked. I was there; he came up to me; I looked at him. 'Well, doc tor!' hesaid, smil ing. I put one finger to my fore head so! and shook my head. He understood; his lips got pale, and heglared at me. A few min utes afterward I saw him at the table, drinking champagne. "As be turned away from the table he saw a lady sitting in a window seat, partly concealed .by lace curtains. me to leave them and She was alone. He went up to her. She was the most beautiful woman of the evening; but he couldn't recall who she was. And yet there was something familiar in her face familiar as a strain of music that you recognize, but cannot place. Now he thought he remem bered then, again, the name just escaped him. He asKed her to take a glass of wine 'Yes.' she said, 'with von!' " " The manner in which Dr. Hoknagel gave the ensuing dialogue amazed me. No trained actor could have done it better. His marvelous voice accommodated itself to every intonation. Closing my eyes I could have believed that the speakers stood before me. "He brought the wine, and she received the glass trom him. Her voice, when she spoke, had gone to his heart; surely he had heard it belore! Where? Where? How lovely she was! Her dress, too, was exqui site, white, soft, voluptuous. The arms and figure of a young goddess. Diamonds on her bosom; in her hair a spray of helio trope. That flower had been his favorite before he married! He had associations with it He felt his face burn. He bent down toward her. "'I fear you have been having a dull eveninghe said. "Did you come late?' "'Yes; I am but just arrived, I came only to see you.' "He felt his heart beat at those caressing words. "'The night would have been a blank to me if you had not been here.' "She smiled a strange smile. 'Truly? I thought you had forgotten me.' how could any one ever forget you? But it is some time since we met' " 'Yes, indeed a long time. But this is your wedding anniversary. See, I bear you no ill will ! Let us drink to it!' "She lifted her glass to her lips. On her finger he caught the sparkle of a ring an amethyst. His hand shook so that his wine was spilled. He knew that ring! 'Where did you get that amethyst?' " Surely, you ought to know! Then I am forgotten! It was you who gave it, Ed ward. "He sat down beside her on the window seat; he had no strength to stand. They were concealed Dy the lace curtains. He stared ia her face," trembling. Yes, it was she; there could be no mistake. 'Frances ca!' " 'Ah, at last!' she said, laughing softly. 'But why do you stare so at me?' " 'I heard you were dead dead, years and years ago!' " 'Oh, I am alive! I am all life. I have been in foreign countries. But I have not forgotten those old days of ours, Edward. How sweet they were! Have you been har py since?' '"The happiness of lost souls! This is my first happy moment Is it real? You have changed, Francesca. You were never so beautiful as this. Have you come to taunt me?' " 'I am Francesca your Francesca,' she said. 'But other changes have, indeed, come to me. I am no longer a girl. I have wealth and power.' She leaned toward him, fragrant and irresistible. 'Edward, do you care for me still?' she whispered. "His self-contral forsook him. 'I wonld give my soul for your he said. "What a looky-whata smile she gave hitnl 'Come with me, then,' said she. 'Come to my home; we cannot talk here. There, no one will interrupt us. Come, Ed ward!' "He hesitated. 'My guests will expect yon know I am ' "She laid her soft fingers on his hand. " 'Never mind them. What are they to ni? Let this be the proof that you care for me to leave them and come with me. Are yon afraid?' "He rose to his feet " 'Let us go,' he said. "He was reckless. But the dining saloon was now empty. The gnests had gone to the drawing rooms and the bands were play ing a waltz. How the music sang and throbbed! They passed out into the hall unnoticed. No one seemed to heed them. Francesca was now enveloped in a long pearl-gray cloak, lined wjth swan's-down. He had bis hat and coat Her hand was on his arm. They descended the stairs, treading on roses. The door opened before them.and they went out. Her carriage stood at the bottom of the steps. Snow was falling, but in a moment, they were seated side by side in toe camajje, wnere it was warm and per fumed. Edward Daventry conld have be lieved nimseii in neaven. te felt the saw the darkness of her eyes and hair, the pure bloom ot her face. "He loved, she loved him; what T?as the world compared to that? The carriage rolled along swiftly, on easy springs. They were leaving all things all care and trouble behind. He bent to kiss her cheek; but she put up her hand with tenderest co quetry, "'Not vet, Edward,' she murmured. 'Wait! wa'it!' "At length the carriage stopped; they were at her home. They alighted; he fol lowed her up the steps, and into the softly lighted hall. As the door closed behind them, she turned to smile on bim a smile of love and invitation. She went on into an inner room, pushing aside the heavy cur tains that hung in the doorway. Here all was warm, sumptuous, luxurious, softly lighted. In the middle ot the room she turned upon him with an enchanting gesture. " 'Now the kiss!' she said. "His lips were almost on hers. Suddenly she lifted her two hands to the sides of her face, and her whole face seemed to come away, as one removes a mask. Beneath was inclosed a bare, grinning skull, with frag ments of earth and mold clinging to it. A cold,damp scent of death emanated from it Something seemed to burst in Daventry!s bead. He uttered an awful scream, and fell to the floor senseless." The doctor stopped and re-lit his pipe. My eyes fell on the skull beside him. "What does this mean?" I faltered. "Is that all?" "A mere hallucination, of course," said the doctor, chuckling. "Daventry's brain had given way on that evening, as I had warned him it would. He imagined he saw this womanand he followed the specter into the street An odd coincidence, by the way: he was found the next morning, nearly frozen to death, aud quite mad where, do you suppose?" "Where?" said I shuddering. "Why, in a deserted house on the other side of the Harlem, which had previously been occupied by this same Francesca. How he got there nobody knows. But he raved about this hallucination for years afterward; and when he died, the other day, he shrieked out with his last breath that he was being kissed by a skull." "Who was Francesca?" I asked. "Why do you ask? That is her skull. And this ring of mine is her ring? What does a name matter? It is only within the last 15 years or so that I have borne my present name. I was married some 40 years since. I lost my wile early. She left me a daughter, but she died, too, when she was was about 19 years old. Have a glass of wine." 2few lork Ledger. A GOOD RECORD.

Chicago Wheat A fair speculative busi ness was transacted to-day, but trading was in spurts, and most of the session the market ruled quiet. The feeling was a little unsettled, though the impression was that a prqminent trader has been selling as much as possible on the quiet, and this created a rather weaker foeling in the December future than tbe May, the latter again commanding a wider premium. Tbe market tbe past few days has acted queer ly, and operators don't know just how to take it The opening was about tbe same as yester day's closing, and prices were advanced slightly then declined ljo for December and' c for May, improved again, and closed at the same as yesterday. The export movement for the week was the largest f or many davs an d gave hope andencoufagenient to the bull inter est, but outside speculation seems to be lack ing. The exports of wheat and flour from both cuasts for the six days were reported at 2,591, 000 bushels, against 2.131,000 bushels the previous week and 2,082,600 bushels the cor respoding week last year. Minneapolis re ports a large demand for fionr there, and sales of 58,000 sacks. On the top oi thi3 came tbe report that three mills had shut down in St. Louis. One reison given fur doing so was tbat tbe mills could not sell their flour; another, tbat it was owing to a scarcity ot wheat, and still another dispatcn said that only one mill bad shut down, and that only temporarily to make repairs, and to cap the climax a dispatch was received stating that 45,000 sacks had been sold there for shipment. The receipts in the Northwest oontlnue lib eral, aggregating at Minneapolis and Dulnth 200,000 bushels larger than last week's arrivals. It is estimated tbat the visible supply will show an increase of about 1,000,000 bushels. Euro pean markets were quoted steady and firm. Corn was fairlj active and weaker, especially the near deliveries, which were offered quite freely and lower prices were established. The easier tone was attributed to clear and cool weather ana prospects of larger receipts. The approaching close of navigation, together with tne expected larger movement, increased the offerings of December and January, and there was a general widening of the premium of May over these deliveries. The market opened a shade under the closing prices of yesterday, was weak and gradually declined fie for the near months and I44c for May, rallied a trifle and closed with December and January c and May ic lower than yesterday. Oats were quiet and easy early, but later be came steadier and closed firm. There was lib eral selling by scattering holders, but good Duylng by sborts, especially those who have sold May against holdings of cash property, but, having disposed of the latter, wc re anxious to cover their trades. Their purchases gave the market what little strength it had. Mess Pork There was rather more trading, yet confined within moderate limits: prices ruled 1012c lower on the deferred deliveries, while the near deliveries showed little change.. Lard The tradmc was moderate and the fee' ing easy. Prices were 57Kc lower for Novem ber, while tbe other deliveries were compara tively steady. Short Rib Sides Not much trading was re ported.

J, A EEYIEW OF TRADE. Week's Produce Trade Unfavorably Affected by Bains. DAIRY PRODUCTS DRIFT UPWARD. Largest Hog Receipts for a Tear Past and a Sharp Decline. PR0YISI0NS ALREADY AT HARD PAN Onus or Pittsburg dispatch. Saturday, November 16, 1889. j The week's weather has been unfavorable to any active movement in general produce trade. Dairy products are a shade firmer than they were a week ago, and the outlook now is for higher prices. Cheese factories are generally closing' up tor -the season, and an advance will very soon be due. 'A o advance in creamery butter at Elgin on Monday brought no changes to onr markets,- except that it stiffened prices. Soft weather has held eggs down to tbe prices which ruled last week. As there is unusual' scarcity of a choice Article, the advent of sharp weather will no doubt send prices upward. Freights Too High. Eeceiptsofpotatoesfrom far Western points have ceased, freight hills spoiled profits and the potatoes now coming to onr markets are in the main from Ohio. Our nearby crop would cut a sorry figure in meeting wants of trade. Many farmers of this sec tion are now obtaining supplies from the city. The quality of potatoes received shows some improvement of late and markets are firmer. Cabbage Is very plenty 'and slow. Florida oranges are in good supply and quiet. Lemons are dnll and lower. Supply of game the past week has been beyond demand, and the movement has been slow at concessions on rates of a week ago. Soft weather has been the depressing influence on came. The grape season is practically nearing its end. Though still to be had, their movement Is slow. Very choice apples are in better lie- mana, dui common give no Signs ot revival. Groceries That Move. The feature for the week in grocery lines has been the upward movement of sugar and coffee. Roasted coffee has been on tbe verge of a rise for a week past, and its failure to go np nntil the Brazilian tronbles came to a head disappointed tbe calculation of onr jobbers. At the c advance, package coffee is relatively too low as compared with the price of tbe green article. Spft weather, daring the past week does not appear to have curtailed tbe wholesale grocery trade. The movement has been active all along the line, and In the amount of goods handled the week has made one of the best re cords of tho season. Cereals Are Steadier. It will be seen by reference to onr domestic market column that receipts in this line ha've greatly declined. Against 359 carloads received week before last bat 222 loads were bulletined at the Grain Exchange this week; As a result markets are steadier, particularly for oats, wheat and flour. Corn is scarce and firm at a shade higher prices than last Saturday. The feeling Is general among grain dealers tbat bot tom prices hare been reached, and tbat the worst is past. Northwestern millers advise their customers here tbat flour orders cannot be duplicated on last week's prices. The time being nearor the closing of lake navigation, freight rates on flour will be increased 6c per barrel after the 20th of November between Minneapolis and Chicago. And between the latter point and Pittsburg a freight rise is also expected, in all making the lay down price here about 10c per barrel higher than heretofore. Hotr Product. The total receipts of hogs in Chicagp the past week were In ronnd numbers 180,000 head, a daily average of 30.000. On one day 45,000 head were received. The week's run has been the largest for 12 months or more. The outside prlce'at Chicago to-day was S3 80 to S3 85. At an live siock centers tne run of hogs has been big, and tbe drift ot markets bas been steadily downward, amounting in the week to 25c to 30a per cwt. In spite of this decline provision mar kets bold up well, as they had for some time been down to hard pan. There is no room for a decline in hog products without loss to the packer. BEGIKNlflG AXD JESD. FUUbnrir Breaking- Away From the Crude Methods of the Founders.' Pittsburg has Teached a critical point in her career. She has finished one stage of her progress, and is starting out upon another. Old Pittsburg is behind; new Pittsburg is before. Her past has been hon orable, full of noble achievements in peace and war, but the future promises to crown her with still brighter laurels. It is possible that visions of a great city, springing from the straggling village which they had planted at "tbe forks of the Ohio," may have sometimes crossed the minds of tbe rude forefathers ot this! great, center of life and industry; but If so, they gave no sign, but kept on In their simple ways, content with the rewards that fell to them, and leaving tbe fruition of tbefr toils and privations to be en joyed by their descendants. The resnlt was a town without purpose or design la Its building, so far as order and convenience were con cerned. Houses were built before streets were laid out, compelling tbem to be carried over devious courses, winding in and ont to avoid obstructions, and Involving them in a maze of crookedness and uncertainty as to wbere they began and ended, wbich has been the wonder of every succeeding generation. It may be urged tbat "the lay of the land" was against the builders an d street makers of that period, bnt still it Is clear that if. they had paid more attention to straight lines better results would have been secured. , Communities, like Individuals, have their ebbs and flows seasons of exultation and de dression of prosperity and reverse. Pittsburg, having emerged from the disadvantages of her early environments, is preparing to taice a fresh start. The close conservatism of her founders has given place to a broaderand more aggressive policy, which is producing good re sults. Her light is no longer hid nndera bushel, but flashes out so as to be seen of all men. Great natural advantages and resources are being utilized and held ont to attract popu lation and capital, and with such success that her growth is a matter of surprise. Her com mercial importance keeps pace with her growth. Her financial institutions are among tbe most substantial In tbe conn try, and they are backed up by an industrial system so extensive and diversi fied as not only to insure their permanency but gradual enlargement to meet the exigencies of the fcture.
