THE FIVE <
BY FBANCIS I
H ? Englishman
turned to his
and calling his at
tention toa guinea
that hung from his
watch chain, said :
"What do you
find on that?"
The other ex
amined the coin closely, and upon
ono side of the medallion saw en
graved in exceedingly small but dis
tinct letters this inscription, "Write
P. 0. Box 1001, London."
Looking at hiB host he said : "What
does that mean ? Is there a story con
nected with it?"
The Englishman laughed.
"Yes, a story in five chapters. Come
here and he led the way into his
library. "There are the chapters,"
he continued, opening a desk and pro
ducing five envelopes, each containing
a letter ; "and I am going to ask jon
to read them, for I am sure they will
interest you. Bofore you begin,
however, 1 will give you the preface
to tho tale, or otherwise you would
not understand it. In 1876, when I
was but a boy, I was sent to Australia
to look after my father's sheep busi
ness. Much of the time I was obliged
to bs in the bush, and when there tho
hours oiten hung heavily upon my
hands. Ono frightfully hot Sunday ?
lay gasping for air under a thorn tree
noar my cabin when I noticed some
thing glittering in the dust of the
roadway not twenty yards distant.
After speculating upon whit it might
be for perhaps an hour, I mustered
sufficient energy to rise from my ham
mock and investigate, lt was this
coin, but without the inscription you
have noted. Returning to my siesta
I began to wonder how it came there,
for not a soul had passed that way for
more than a month, except my own
men ; and neither they nor I had any
gold. My wonder grew upon itself
until nt last it occurred to me how
strange a story such a piece of money
could tell if it could relate its adven
tures, and from that idea it was bat a
step lo the inscription and a trial of
my fantastic notion.
The first time I visited Sydney, I
took the coin to a jeweler and had him
engrave it as yon have seen. I put
the London P. O. box on, for London
is known the world around, and 1001
is and always has been my box,
??JsetII5t in Australia or at home. No
sooner was the gold prepared than I
started it on its journeyings; for I
paid it to the very jeweler who marked
it. Now you may read the letters."
"But, "said his friend, "how does it
come that you have the guinea now,
if you parted with it twenty years ago
"Ab," replied the other, with a
smile, "that may be termed the sequel
to the story of the letters. Bead those
and then I will add that also."
The first was written upon heavy
paper, in Spanish with the following
translation attached :
H. S. M. Sloop of War, Infanta.
MELBOURNE, Mch. Otb, 1880.
.Respected Sin-I have recently received
an Eugli?h gold piece which boure the fol
lowing words: "Write P. O. Box 1001, Lon
don." The same was paid to me some days
since by n Malay fruit trader while we were
at Batavia, Java. Not observing tho engrav
ing until the Malay had Wt the ship I am
unable to state whore ho obtained the money.
We are about to leave for Barcelona, and
should I have opportunity to visit London
during my stay ashore I shall do myscUtho
honor to personally exhibit the wandering
guinea to Box 1001.
With great respect, I am, Sir,

"This comes next," said the Eng
lishman ; "you may wonder at its date,
and yet you can probably imagine the
tragedy that intervenes;" and he
handed a rather dingy sheet to the
The writing was coarse and un
formed but evidently in a man's hand,

PBETOBIA. TRANSVAAL, S. A.,
June 14th, 1882.
I have in my possession a guinea, attached
to a piece of gold chain, which I think was
a w.itch chain. It ls marked Write P. O.
Box 1001, London, and so I do. I have had
the coin somo three months and received it
from a Namaqua nativo with whom I waa
trading for ivory on the Molopo River. He
was a chief aud wore the thing around his
neck. We were together several days, and
when I saw the gold piece was a guinea I
was curious enough to ask bim where he got
it. He said one of his men took it in war
from an angra, or West Coast man. I pre
sume that fellow got it from some wreck or
even from some dead or dying sailor on tho
shore. It tbs piece is of any particular value
as a keepsake I will send it to London upon
request. Write me here.
I Tho American looked up.
"Poor Cardenza! Evidently his ship
was lost and the savages robbed his
The Englishman bowed.
"When I received this letter I made
search through the marine records, for
I was then at home, and four d that in
May, 1880, the Spanish sloop of war
Infanta was lost off South Africa and
no one saved. The lieutenant's body
probably washed ashore in the long
ground swell which rolls in upon that
coast in the spring, and tho Angra
man despoiled lt of watch, chain and
pendant. Only the gaiuea will ever
be heard of again."
"Did you writo Hufoland?" queried
"Yes, out of ourtesy, thanking him,
and telling him where the coin had
started and how it had probably
reached him, and asking him not to
return it, but to set it on its travels
again in the regular course of business.
I had no reply to my letter and doubt
whether the Boer ever reoeived it.
Something more than a year later this
third chapter arrived."
He handed the American a large,
square envelope of rough paper, bear
ing the strange postmark, "Irkutc,"
Maokor Sunt," and the sheet within
was headed "Yakutsk." The letter
was in English.
To the Unknown: Except to drink vodka,

however, upon a reply. My personal

but when I .'aw the inscription 1 hunted up

The American laughed.
"Quite a characteristic letter. You
surely wrote Mr. Harlow?"
"Ob, yee," replied the other, "and
have still un epistolary acquaintance
with him, maintained in a desultory
manner ever since. He is now in
Washington, in your country, I think.

"Icu see how long a time had passed
since the third letter," said the Eng
lishman; "six years. I had all but
forgotton my golden wanderer when
this came ; but yon may know that I
wrote at once and ut length to pool
Jameson, dying amid the horrible
wastes of Lower California. I even
wrote twice ; but no answer came, and
I concluded that his course was run.
Sometimes I remembered the fellow,
pitying his loneliness if living; bnt as
time passed the recollection slowly
faded from my mind, when, two
years ago, tho fifth and last of tho
scries came to hand."
The American took the letter. It
was written in a lady's hand, post
marked "Cranbrook, Kent, England,"
dated May 10th, 1832, and ran as fol
"Doar Sir: Almost ten years ago my
brother Arthur, then a boy of only seven
teen, ran away from homo. For a timo ho
used to write me and I most gladly replied,
for he was my only brother, four years older
than myself, and greatly loved. He was
nevor quite successful, but always hopeful;
and Anally reached the State of California,
where I heard from him in the summer of
1837. I wrote him as usual: but his replies
were few and far between, and after some
months oeHsed altogether. In 1883 our fath
er died, und I bagged my brother to come
home. I clo not know if he had my letter,
but, like all tho rest, this sa l one also re
mained unanswered. Sometimes I asked
upon the wrapper that the letter should be
returned If not delivered. A few came back,
while others did not appear, so thut I was
therefore left in doubt and could not te'I
whether my dear ono lived or not; nor, if
he lived, where.
i "Atter 1839 I gave up writing, but not
hope; but until three days ago I have never
had word of Arthur nor known of his fate.

two cops, and in some cases fifteen to

11XTRA FE1?DINQ TWIN LAMBS.
Not ong ago a farmer remarked that
he did not sec much advantage in hav
ing ew?B that bred twins. The extra
lamb, he remarked, took part of the
food n idled for one after the second
week, and caused both to be second
class, i nd perhaps not worth more
than cae in prime condition. No
doubt his estimate was correct so far
as his jxperience went, but it simply
showed that the farmer was not alive
to the opportunities which twin lambs
gave him. All lambs should bo fed
sometb ng besides their mother's milk
after tl ey are two weeks old. In the
case ol twin lambs this is especially
necessary. At first the feed shonldbe
of the simplest character and not of a
kind ti tempt the appetite. A small

PLA rr YOUR TREES IN AUTUMN.
All fruit trees, except the peach and
all the sn.all fruits except the blaok
cap raspberry are best planted in the
autumn, and the earlier after the
leaves fa 1, tho better. The advan
tages of i ill planting may be summed
up as foll owa :
1. Nur lerymen have fuller and bet
ter stocks of trees in the autumn
when the sales begin. The be6t ore
sold first, and Inter orders are filled
with the material wh'ch remains on
hand. Sometimes it is impossible to
have an order for certain varieties
filled in t 10 spring, all of that stock
being sob . There is frequently ob
served a r larked superiority in stock
received i 1 tho fall.
2. If tr ?es aro properly planted in
the early lutumn almost every one is
sure to liv 0 and thrive the next sea
son, whil ) of those planted in the
spring a ;onsiderable per cent, will
die the fir it year. The explanation is
that dnriiig the warm days of autumn
the trees tecome established in their
new locati >ns. Having no leaves they
do not nte d moisture as they do in the
spring. 1 he earth becomes com
pacted ab >ut the roots, which form
cailusses o?er the cut and torn ends,
and even t egin to emit small rootlets
before the winter sets in, so that on
the earlies ? warm days of spring the
youug orchard is ready to start off to
make a full growth..
3. Another reason for fall planting
is that the aurseryraonthen have more
time to d g and pack the trees, and
there is lees liability of errors, which
are very provoking when discovered
after the lapso of eight or ten years
when the 1 ree begins to fruit. The
planter,too, has more time to properly
do the work of planting, so that all
orchards planted in thc cut iran have
a better ch mee of -racoeeding.
Strictly first-class trees and vines
should alwi ys be purchased. Other
qualities m ty live, but they will gener
ally come to bearing so far behind
first-class si ock that more will be lost
than is ga ned. To illustrate this:
Some years ago the writer purchased
a thousand -.bird-class currant bushes.
They nearl/ all grew, but failed to
fruit the sei ond and third years with
any degree of profit, so that the loss
was considerable. So with pear and
apple trees of the second-class more
will dio anl the remainder will be
longer in cooling into bearing.
Nurserymm often advocate tho
planting of very young trees. This
will do if th 3 trees are to have garden
culture, bu whero trees are to be
planted iu a 1 orchard and will receive
only ordinary caro tho larger tree,
thr'*o or fo ir years old, will stand
lunch tho better chanco of living and
early fruiting. Always order straight,
thrifty, clea 1 and healthy stock from
the nursery and insist that it be
guaranteed free from all insect and
Alter the trees are planted pull the

A Baby Saved by a Puppy.
A story of the remarkable cure
effected in tho case of au infant child
of William McGinty has caused much
comment at Long Branch, N, J. Mc
Ginty is a prominent member of the
American Volunteers. The McGinty
baby became seriously ill, and as the
usual remedies failed to do any gocd
and the little one lost flesh and
strength rapidly, physicians were sum
mone 1. They said the child's heart
was weak and that there wa3 no hope
of its recovery.
The father was in despair and was
willing to grasp at any suggestion
which promised the slightest hope of
success. Finally a neighbor urged
McGinty to place a puppy in the
baby's crib at night.
"And what then ?" asked the mys
"Just leave the puppy there," said
the adviser. "That's all." The baby
will gain in strength' Tho puppy wili
The experiment was made at once.
After two days the baby was percepti
bly stronger. On tho third day th?
improvement was marked, and the dog
displayed symptoms of restlessness and
weakness. It lost flesh; the baby
gained in weight.
As the days passed a little color
crept into the child's cheeks and they
began to . regain the roundness they
had lost The dog continued to grow
thinner and weaker. At the end oi
ten days the child had apparently re
gained its natural health and
strength, and the puppy wa3 removed
from the crib.
The father feared that a relapse
might follow ; but there was no sign
of it, and to-day his child is seeming
ly in the bust of health. The puppy,
instead of regaining its strength after
being separated from the baby for
whose health it had been sacrificed,
grew gradually weaker, and. last F.ri

Making Commercial Diamonds.

no commercial value. Now, however,
United States Consul Germain at Zu
rich reports to the State Department
that a Mr. E. Moyatt claims to have
discovered a process by which dia
monds of larger dimensions may be
produced. In principio his process is
similar to the ono already used-that
is,to crystallize carbon out of iron and
steel by means of high pressure
and high temperature. Yet thero is
an improvement in tho technical oper
ation. Pulverized coal, iron chips and
liquid carbonic acid are enclosed in a
strong steel tube, hermetically Healed
and subject to an clcotric current be
tween two terminals in the ends of tho
tube? Thc iron liquefies, is saturated
by part of the pulverized coal, and at
the samo time tho liquid carbonic acid
evaporate?, thereby creating enormous
pressure on the liquid iron and coal.
This process considerably increases
the dissolution of the coal in the liquid
iron. While the mix*- -'?? cooling
the carbon cry' ..uzes partly in the
form of real namonds and partly in
the form of similar stones. These
crystals aro released from the ingot by
dissolving tho iron in diluted muriatic
acid. The mixture by this method re
mains under high pressure during the
opeiation of the electric current.
