It twined Indeed th:it t!io artist's prediction that tlio mystery of the nea toad would remain a mystery forever was destined to he fnlflllod. The day cniuo ami went, ;uid there WON) no du folopuenta to onooorage a faltering and disKiixtrd police. It was tlio morn strange booann a full description of poor An nette had been published in au tho pa pers, and there had boos a deal of in terest in the matter. Dnt public Intoroit to bo ki-pt alive lmit bo fod, and ono moming tho city editors of tlio several dailies awoke to find choice collection of now material for Interesting reading and straightway pigeonholed tho old til! duller times. And so tho poor crea ture with the wounded Intellect was for gotten. A very rich man had suddenly and com pletely disappeared under circumstances so suspicious ns to warrant tho most (hocking speculations, And the newspa pers did not spare their readers' feel ings. The reason was simply that tlio newspapers had learned from long expe rience) that tht ir readers did not desire to l'o nparod in foot, would ho rather inclined to resent any such forethought on the part of the newsgatherers. For this and the other good reason that tho supplemental mystery of the assault on Ellon Maxey never got into print at all the matter dropped. And so Maxey 's great double mystery remained in spite of his almost frantic attempts todispol it. No new clews ap peared, and the old ones, like tho foot steps iu I ho field at Somerset, led no where. The poliee were discouraged, and even Dr. Lamar pave it as lus opinion that timo spent in looking into this mat ter was timo wasted. Miss Maxey fulfilled the physician's predictions bv oettina well in a few (lays, hut the poor, frightened faco that j looked forth from the pillows in the lit tle aid rve room was as pale and pitiful as ever. Tho experiments with-mnsic, as a power for good, which promised so much in the beginning, justified Dr. Lamar's forebodings in the end. Never after that first day wcro tho emotions aroused in the patient of sufficient strength to cause her to lose conscious ness, Music always attracted her, inter ested her, even drove off for a timo that monotonous motion of the hands which seemed so dreadful to tho strong, healthy pcoplo about her, hut it left no perma nent impression. It was not progressive. It was not an educator. Alas for honest Julian's simplo and beautiful idea of bringing her luck to her lost world I The thought was too poetic fur reality. In vain did pretty Ellen Maxey sing her sweetest songs. The wan face still turned With the same mute terror upon her sur roundings. The eyes never ceased tho restless search for the horror that did not come, and tho small, whito hands con tinued to clasp and unclasp themselves as of old But one day there was a change in the symptoms. A peculiar spasmodic action of tho muscles of the lace and limbs lie tjan to manfost itself. When Dr. Lamar taw this, his face lighted up with a sud len hope. For a long timo he had boon very trrave. He had gone about in a continual abstraction and had even been occasion ally seen with his umbrella under his I arm in fine weather, an unmistakable indication that lie was becoming absent minded. Never before had ho met with a easo which baffled him so persistently as this. From the hour when he knelt beside her in the snow by the sea road and had given his opinion that it was a "very serious matter" the patient had never been wholly out of his mind. It made him angry to think that the information contained in this first state ment of his impressions of tho case as ho bent over Ellen Mnxey's shoulder and saw tho whito fcifo looking up by the light of the lantern vas about the iron and substance of all he had been ttblo to learn sineo, but such was the foot What more could ho say with any certainty today than this? To bo snre, it had puzzled older men than he, but that was small consolation to a mind like Lamar's. The greater tho obstacles the more determined ho became toover como them. "Either I will be the death of this problem or it will bo the death of me," ho said to himself, and with this con viction ho had set to work to save his own life. He saw tho patient so often that ho photographed every look and motion she was accustomed to maiio upon his mind. Not the movement of a muscle, not the twitching of an eyelid escaped him. He went about studying every one of these apparent trivialities and trying to account for it. Just ns Maxey treasured up overy scrap of evidence) which 'promised to throw any light on the great double mystery which entirely nonplused the police, so the physician, constituting himself a medical detective, looked upon tho various symptoms of tho girl's con dition as so many clows to the great pathological mystery which was baffling him. During the weeks following the discovery of Annetto he, reread almost his entire library on brain diseases. Aft erward he borrowed from a friend. Ono night he came across a passago which start led him. It was tho particu lar statement of tho symptoms of a pa tient in a German hospital who died with a strange malady that completely mystified tho physicians. The result of the post mortem examination nppondcrt showed that the secret cause of his death was a cerebral complication, tho chief factor in which was n tumor in the brain. A footnote suggested that this abnormal growth had probably boon caused by a fall. Perhaps it was because ho watched with a new idea in his mind, but it was the very next day, when Lamar renewed his observations at tho bedside of the pa tient in Rallavoine place, that ho detect ed tho spasmodic symptoms for tho first time. The result wan that ho became convinced. He could scarcely conceal his delight when ho camoto take his departure. er iT ' ' fV . ; . Miss Maxey was a quick reader of faces, and of his faco in particular. She stopped him at tho door tuid said shyly, but determinedly: "You have some good news for us, but you aro so afraid that wo shall lie disappointed that you hesitate to tell it':" "No," said Lamar, "hut I think I have located her disorder. However, I am not au authority in this matter. I shall bring some friends here, with your leave, this afternoon. " lie smiled so pleasantly to himself that Ellen was delighted. "Surely, if this be true, you will know just what to do to euro her?" "Cure? I said nothing about curing. No. It is necessarily fatal iu its re sults." She flashed ono look of horror and in dignation into his face and tumcdnway without a word. Poor Dr. Lamar forgot to smile on his way to the street. But a moment before he had felt a glow of pro fessional pride in what he ventured to hope was the success of a daring diag nosis. As he emerged into the sunlight an intimate friend might have thought, from his crestfallen expression, that he had met with a severe defeat. However, this did not prevent him from calling on some of his fellow phy sicians, and that aftc moon a council of grave and dignified men stood around the bedside of poor Annette. If it Had cost the artist anything, that littlo con sultation in tho back sitting room would have proved au expensive luxury. But fortunately for him Dr. Lamar was his friend, and there WAS sufficient interest in the ease to make these vise and high ly paid individuals in black coats think it worth their while to have a hand iu it for their own information, While they were present tho nrtist and his sister were excluded from the room. When tho meeting was over, La mar called them in. They found tho physician rubbing his hands iu a state of unmistakable elation. In fact, his spirits were so high that they somewhat obscured his vision. He did not seem to notice Miss Maxey's presence, ami when Julian asked him how the ease stixxl he burst out with an enthusiasm which would hare done credit to tho artist himself. "I was right! Iwnsrightl Tiny have agreed with me exactly!" Mis-; Maxey suddenly burst into tears and left tho room. "She is overjoyed!" cried Maxey. "Unfortunately, no," said the phy sician, biting his lip in vexation. "I ought to have known better. I told her "1 van rl'jhl! I was riiht!" this morning that if my diagnosis was correct the disease was necessarily fata!. Yon must tell her, Max v, that I made a mistake. I thought soat the time, but I find I w;w mistaken. There is one chance in A thousand that by submitting to a dangerous operation which will be very likely to either kill or euro her the patient will recover. Without that oper ation she is doomed to Buffering and death." "What an alternative!" cried Maxey, aghast. "I am sorry it is not in my power to offer yon a better one, hut in the present state of science I cannot. There is a re lontless substance, no bigger than the Ind of my little finger, remorselessly oating its way into her brain. If it is al lowed to go on unchecked, it will do its fatal work, tho only way to cheek it is to remove it. That is a rare and danger ous experiment, which we read of indeed in old books, such ns Sir Astley Cooper's compilations of 50 years ngo, but so rarely resorted to in practice that I did not know until today it was successful ly accomplished very recently in Eng land. There is scarcely a precedent to that operation. Now you understand tho rase. It remains for yon to say whether the patient shall go to the hospital and bo opcrafeu upon or remain here and die. " "Woidd the operation, if successful, restore uer to her mind and memory?" questioned Maxey eagerly. "It does not follow at all. The very matter that has confused and baffled ail our calculations so long is the complex ity of the symptoms. Beside the epilepti form symptoms arising from the tumor, which, by the way, must have been well along in its dangerous work before tho accident at the beach road, there aro tho psychical results of a curious mental disturbance. Perhaps the mental trou ble was the consequence of the fright and would have been soon conquered but for the work of the tnmor. All this is conjecture. The possible result remains to be seen. Shall I go on or not?" Two hours later Maxey gave his reply: "Goon." TO pf. CONTINUED. The T.nlcn Lilies. Twelve miles north of Norwich, Conn., IS On of the most wonderful lily ponds iu all America. It, is a lake ono mile in di ameter, so closely grown with lilies that during blossoming timo it is hard to get a glimpse of tho water. When thi' wind is strong and tho lilies aro open tho perfume of them is perceptible a quarter Of mile from the brink of the pond. So thick are the lilies and in such tangled masses that it is almost Impossible to pro pel a boat in the pond, and the lily gath erers have to wade for them in hip rubber boots. Not only aro the lilies extraordi narily plentiful, but tlio blossoms! aro mora regal, jierfect, lustrous and of deeper hue than iu other ponds. Huston Herald. fix That sermon of Rev. Dr. Tnlrasns last Sunday on the future opening to womou contained many magmticent things. Instance this: "I denounce the idoii prevalent in socioty that though our young women may embroider slip pel's and crochot and mule mats for lamps to stand on without disgrace, the idea of doing anything for u liveli hood is dishonorable. It is asluiuie for a young woman beloniring to a large family to be inefficient when the father toils bu life away for her support. It is a shame for a daughter to be idle while her mother toils at the washtub It is as honorublo to sweep house, make beds, or trim hats, as it is to twist a watch chain. As far as I can under stand the line of respectability lies be tween that which is usoful and that which is useless. If women do that which is of no value their work is honorable. That our young wcnieu ihmv escape the censuro ot doing dlstionorable work I shall particularize "You may knit a tluy lor the taick of an armchuir. hut by no means make the money when witli to buy tl:o chair. You may, with delicate brush, beautify a mantol or nament, but die rather than earn enough to buy a marble mantel. You may learn artistic music until you euu squall Italian, but never sing 'Of ton ville' or 'Old Hundred.' Do nothing praollcal,it you would m the eyes of refine. I soeioty, preserve your respecta bility. I scout these finnioul notions. I tell you no woman, any more than u man, has a right to occupy a place in this world unless alio pays a rent for it.

Among other things Mrs. Jaoobi said: Since ism, when was framed the consti tution under which tbis state has sinco lived, immense caanges hnv been effected iu tho industrial, legal and educational status of women. The tremendous infla i m e of untraninieleil liberty of thought in America has brought nb . ut not only au unrivaled degree of liberty for men, but a degree of personal liberty for Women hith erto unparalleled. Tbetretpendons nctivlty ot industrial extension has drawn wotoou into the vortex of industrial life, so that they have become Important and recog nized factors in the wealth of the state. It is not, however, ns industrials alone that women today occupy important rela tions to the wealth of the stale. They aie larne holders of property, acquired either through their own exertions, throngs nifts, through marital right, or hy inherit ance. It is estimated that throughout the state women hold property in their own name to tho amount of nt least 1500,000,000. tin this iru mense property women pny taxis, and yet remain unrepresented iu the leals hiturcs thnt apportion tuo taxation. Un til, practically, today, tho inequalities of political rights have been along lines of social clnss distinction. The well horn, ti e powerful, the educated, the rich, havo ruled. The poor, the ignorant, tho help less havo submitted. But today, for the first time, classes have been Indistmguish ably fused; all previous lines of olearags have been consolidated Into one great line of demarcation which makes a political ClBSS oat of a sex for the first time, all political riulit, privilege and power reposes undisgaisi d on the one brutal fact of sex, unsupported, untempered, unaltered by an atti Unite of , ducatnm, any justification of Intelligence, any glamor of wealth, any prestige of birth, any insignia of actual power. For ho first tune women no matter how well born, how well educated, how intelligent, how rich, how service ble to the Btnti have been rendered I he loittical Interiors of all men, no matter how base born, poverty stricken, how Ig norant, how vicious, how brutal. The pan (.or In the almshouse may vote the lady who devotes herself to getting that slmshonse mnde habitable may not. Tho tramp who begs cold rituals in tho kit. hen may vote; tho heiress who feeds him und endows a unlverity mm- not vote. Communities are agitated and leg islatures convulsed to devise means to se cure tho right of suffrage to the illiterate voter. And the writer journalists, phy sicians, teachers, the wives and dangnterH und companions of the best educated men in the states, are left iu silence, blotted out, swamped, otdiberated behind thi cloud ol often besotted ignorance.

Cltvtland Plaindeaiir, "There is, says Talmage, "no bap pin-as in an idle woman. It may b. with hand, it may be with brain, it mny bo with foot; hut work she must, or b wretched forever. Tin It ttl girlsof our families must be started with that idea. Tho curse of our Amer ican society is that our young women are taught that the first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, tenth, fif- entering womanhood ought to have just the special help that Dr. Pierce's Favorito Prescrip tion can give. They need to be started right.
