Of courso it was not called a madhouse, or people would not hne sent their mentally unhinged friends there It boro the eu phonious appellation of "Dr. Brier's Homo Sanitarium" and was consequently well patronized. People usually dislike call ing a thing by its proper name, Tho perfectly kept grounds wero sur rounded by a high iron fence, within which the hannle-s inmate wandered at will during certain hours of tho day. On a rustic bench sat a young woman. Her eyes were ('os-ed, and as she remained in .repose shu was beautiful, with a Span ish type of beauty that no other nation ran equal. Suddenly she starred up with a wild motion of tho hand toward her throat as though hho wero being choked The dark eyes fhowed Intense fright, and the wholo faco was convulsed. Gradually the frenzy passed away, and she hank down upon the Iwnoh again, with a wenry little laugh.. Tho soft breeze rustled tho lies of the trees Hiid murmured a gentle lullaby. Slowly the beautiful head sank lower and lower until it was pillowed on a fleecy wran which lav on the end of tho bench. and she slept At that exact hour it happened that a curious woman, accompanied by a friend, asked permission of ono of the physicians on tho stall to bo shown through the place. Ho had tho misfortune to bo one of her frionds, bo he acquiesced; but beingbnsy at tho time ho t urned her over to tho mercies of a young doctor, who, finding the curious woman and her friend rather amiable, did his utmost to entertain them. And so it occurred that after going through the building they sauntered about tho grounds and saw tho Spanish beauty lying asleep, with her face us calm and sweet as that of a sleeping child. "Oh," cried tho curious woman ecstatic ally, "do tell us about her!" Tho young doctor smoothed his bud ding mustache and looked about him. No ono was visible. "We don't often tell tho history of our patients," he began hesitatingly, "butthis is a rather peculiar caso, and if you spe cially desire" "Oh, do tell us!" cried tho curious wom an, with a world of persuasion in her voice. "1 assure you it will go no farther. Is sho SpaniBh?" They moved away slightly that their voices might not disturb tho sleeper. Tho young doctor replied: "Oh, yes! Sho was born in Castile, and whllo yet littlo more than a child hardly 10, I believe married for wealth and po sition a Spaniard three times her age, "Affairs went smoothly for two years, when tho husband contracted a diseaso, which proved fatal. Now it would havo been much nicer and moro liko what ono reads in Sunday school books if ho had bidden his relatives an affectionate farewell as ho lay on his deathbed, but instead of doing that he called his young wife to him and said in tones so low that no one but sho could hear, 'Inez, if you marry again, I shall come back from tho grave, and, with the icy lingers of death, I shall choke you chokoyou.' His faco was convulsed with passion, and shortly afterward ho died. Ho was buried with tho pomps and ceremonies required in n Spanish family of position, and for two years the widow remained In seclusion. "At the end of that timo she came forth more beautiful than ever and joined a party of friends traveling in Kngland. Thero sho met the man who was to bo her future husband a handsome, nthletio young American of the Anglo-Saxon typo. "Her fonniT husband's dying words so haunted her that at first sho repulsed tho American's suit. Howccr, he followed her to her homo in Castile, and at latt, sensibly concluding that flicso haunting words wero merely the ravings of a deliri ous man, sho married tho American. "They came to America to live and for a time wero very happy, but after n timo they that is, sho" Tho young doctor paused and cleared his throat. The curious woman and her friend exchanged glances. "Sho began to suffer from a strango hallucination," ho went on. "At night sho often woko with a scream, belioving that tho icy lingers of her former husband wero choking her. Tho matter grow worse, until sho felt the lingers not only at night, but ulso In her waking hours. Numberless physicians wero consulted, but they offered no remedy.

"Nowhere perhaps in the world are onions grown to such a state of perfec tion as in the Bermudas," said a whole sale produce merchant to a writer re cently. "The balmy climate and rich soil cf these islands, together with the careful methods of cultivation, have combined to produce an onion that, for size and flavor, is peerless. The vege table will average from one-half pound to one pound and a half in weight. It a always sound, juicy and crisp, and these good qualities are o well appre ciated by Americans that about 300, 000 crates of the onions are annually shipped to the United States. "Preparations to supply the markets of this conntiy every spring with the vegetable are made early in January, nnd when gathered in March and April the onions are carefully selected and packed in crates, weighing, when filled, 160 ponnds. The onions are then taken to the general receiving whf?i, where they are subjected to a ligid inspection by government officers. If the quality of the produce is not good and any im perfect or decayed specimens are found, the farmer is, made to pick the goods over and replace them. The cnions are then passed by the inspector, and when the crates have been closed and marked by the shipper they are loaded on board a steamship, which, after a voyage of 18 hours, lands them, principally in New York. Here consignments of from 4,000 to 5,000 jrates, each containing 150 onions, are received semiweekly. The vegetable is usually sold by the weight and is worth about 5 cents per pound retail."
