' BRING YOUR Job Wcrl TO THE TIMES OFFICE. AN UNCANANY SECRET. GR;M MYSTERY THAT LURKS WITHIN E AN OLD ENGL!SH CASTLE. Three .'Eon Oniiy Know the Truth About the Terrifyixng Curse Which rests Upon the Ancient Habitation, and Their Lips Are Scaled. Near the border of two Scottish coun ties, set in the middle of a broad and Nrtilc strath and protected from the northern blasts by a range of lofty mountains. there stands and has stood for generations an ancient feudal cas tio. Although the oldest wing dates from the thirteenth century, the greater part of it was built in Jacobean days and 1 with its numerous turrets, battlements, corbels and pinnacles recalls the glo ries of Chantiily and other French chateaux of the same period. It be longs, together with the surrounding estate, to a wealthy peer, whose grand father married a north of England heiress with a dowry of over a million sterling. During the greater part of the year the castle is untenanted save by a few servants and caretakers, for the ovner spends his winters abroad and his summers in the English seat brought into the family by the above mentioned heiress. But during the autumn months it is full of life an, gayety, for its kindly lord and lady, who have many children and grand children and a host of friends, keep open house then in their old Scottish home, and its halls and corridors, nar row passages and winding staircases echo with the sound of merry voices and the tread of youthful feet from, morning till night. Cheerful, however, as the invited guest finds the old castle and warm as is the welcome extended to him within its walls, he must be possessed of little curiosity and less imagination if he does not feel his pulse somewhat quick ened and his sleep somewhat broken during the period of his residence there, for he has probably heard al ready something of the weird associa tions which cling to the house and its owners and of the mysterious secret said to be known only to the head of the family, to his heir and to one other person, a secret so grim and terrible as to affect the whole lives of those who learn it and make them different from other men. No clew to the mystery has ever been given by any one of the three deposita ries of It, but popular belief has long connected it with a secret chamber in the castle which rumor assigns as the habitation of a strange half human creature of terrifying aspect and fabu lous age, the incarnate embodiment of the curse which rests upon the house. In the gayest moments enjoyed by those who during the bright days of early autumn throng the guest cham bers of the castle there is always an Andefinable feeling of some weird pres ence within Its walls. "My dear young lady," were the words of the host to one who was pay Ing him her first visit as he bade her good night, "it is, I know, the custom of ladies to sit up late in one another's rooms chatting and so on. Now, that is not allowed here. When you go to your room tonight remain in it and lock the door." Once on n wet summer's after noon some young people were enjoying a noisy game of billiard fives in the -hall. While the merry din was at its height the tall, bowed figure of the host was suddenly observed to be standing in the midst of the party. "i, want to ask you all," he said in his quiet, courteous tones, "to go up to your rooms at once and to remain in them until a bell rings, when you will be quite at liberty to come down again." Instantly, like the Arabs of the poem, the players "silently stole away" to their respective chambers. After a lapse of some twenty minutes a bell did ring. Down they all came and resumed their game where It had !been broken off. No allusion was made by any one to the mysterious behest they had received. EIn a quiet corner of the o'ld castle there is a quaint little chapel, dating from the restoration. decorated by a Dutch artist of the time and fitted up in recent days with a rich altar and other accessories by the present owner, Ewho spends much time there engaged in solitary devotions. A year or two ago a young of~eer, who'se visit had been shortened by a sudden summons to rejoin his regiment, had arranged to leave the castle at an early hour in the morning. Quitting his chamber about dawn, he took a wrong turning in the uncertain light and, pushing open a swing door, found himself in the chapel, which he had not before entered. At the far end he observed, Iwith great surprise, a motioniess fig ure kneeling near the altar and moved noiselessly up to see who it was. He recognized his) host, still in evening dress, as he had parted from him some seven hours previously. A young medical man was not long ago staying at the castle by invitation of its owner, who had made his ac quaintance abroad, and, being some thing of an invalId, had 'asked him to come and take a few weeks' holiday in Scotland and at the same time to giv~e him the benefit of his professional skil1. A room was assigned to him in one of the towers, and he was in the full enjoyment of his visit when it w as suddenly brought to an end In a str-ange fashion. Coming home unexpectedly early one afternoon from shooting, leaving most of his fellow guests still in the stubbles, and mounting to his turret chamber, he noticed a sIngular circum stance. A stain which he had often observed in the carpet under the win dow was now visible exactly at the op posite corner of the room. showing that 'during his few hours' Absence the whole of the furniture must have been moved out of the apartment and the carpet taken up. The Impulse came upon him to re peat the process. Out into the passage accordingly went bed, chairs, tables, wardrobe and everything -else; up came the carpet, and there In the center of the floor was the Inevitable trapdoor. Lifting it, he descried a steep flight of steps, which he descended, lighted can dle In hand, and found at the bottom a p arrow, winding passage, along which - e cautiously made his way. Suddenly he was brought up short by a dead white plastered wall, barring his far ther advance, and, putting out his hand to touch it, his finger went half an inch into the plaster, which was soft, wet and evidently quite newly laid on. Smoothing it over as best he could (not an easy task wvithout a proper imple ment), he quietly retraced his steps to him room, rearranged carpet and fur niture exactly as he had found them and went down to tea, keeping his own counsel and saying nothing to any one of his adventure. Next morning while he was still in castle. It Inclosea a check 'and briefly informed him that his services were no longer required and that a carriage would be in readiness to take him to the railway station at the earliest hour convenient to himself.-London Mall. f NERVE ON THE GALLOWS.- r e When the Hangman Quit, the Convict t Promptly Ilanged Himself. Some time ago a Russian criminal was erecutcd in St. Petersburg. He had during two years murdered twelve persons, the last one being a priest. The law did not show this monster any t mercy, but speedily condemned him to a ieath. Stebljanski was the name of this wholesale murderer, and he hoped to the last for clemency. When the death warrant was read and the keeper in formed him that he had but six hours to live he raged and swore to revenge himself in the most horrible manner. After being left alone in the cell the first thing he did was to break his lamp, and, procuring some matches, be se3t fire to the oil. In a moment the flames , broke through the windows, and thte entire building was for a time threat- I ened with destruction. Fortunately the i fire was discovered In time and got un- 1 der control before much damage had y been done, but in the meantime a ter- a rible struggle ensued between the keep- s ers and the criminal, who had fortified t himself with an iron bar taken from t his bedstead. The irzft man to enter t the cell was -knocked senseless, and It a was only after being almost suffocated a with smoke that the prisoner was b finally overpowered. Next morning the Ij execution took place. The condemned . man ascended the scaffold with much y bravado, made a thorough examination t of the same and finally declared the a rope was too short. 0 "I cannot get my head in the loop," s he said, "and, though it will cause me l1 some inconvenience to wait, I will l smoke a cigarette while you.are having e it attended to." He lighted a cigarette and, turning to d the executioner, made a speech, point- V ing out the detestable in his profession, d and as a condemned criminal in Russia d has certain rights no one dared to in- t: terrupt him. 11 The executioner, who was really a o tender hearted man, became visibly af fected by the moralizing words -of the d murderer and, turning to the crowd as- h sembled before the scaffold, declared d that his conscience did not allow him a to proceed or to take a fellow man's t life, and he then and there resigned his . position and departed amid the shouts s, of the assemblage. This caused great confusion among t the representatives of the law, for 1 where could they in a hurry get anoth- o er executioner? The question was, a however, solved by the condemned f man, who declared that he would ex ecute himself as soon as he got through d smoking. Ile started an interesting t conversation with the priest during b the five minutes or so which he had b left and recommended that he read t Count Tolstoi's latest book, which con- a tains striking remarks about the rela- A tion of capital punishment to the teach- j ings of Christianity. He then threw t] a kiss to a pretty girl among the spec tators, stuck his head in the loop and a kicked away the trap beneath his feet -Washington Star. The Sling Among the Israeultes-. ti The Inhabitants of Palestine made n use In very ancient times of the sling, p the most skillful in its use being the iL tribe of Benjamin, whose boast It was 1 never to miss their aim. What makes j their skill appear more surprising was that they managed to sling with the left e hand. The men who came to David's y help at Ziklag were no less adroit t They used at will cither the right hand t< or the left. The sling was also the fa- t vorite weapon of shepherds, who with It drove away wild beats preying ont their flocks. This makes David's vie- g tory over the giant Gollath less sur- t prising, as he had no doubt great prac- n tie in the use of this instrument while r guarding his father's sheep.

You know what I s want Hurry up. You are losing time." s The photographer took his camera y and departed. A few hours later he 3 came in with the proof of a picture he had taken from the desired point of view. "What is this?" said the city editor. a~ "That is a photograph of the ruins of t Colonel Welligan's house from the in- I side corner of the fence near the street" e "I can't see anything of the house." t "I couldn't, either," responded the d photographer. "I tried to tell you there t was a big tree standing between that S corner and the house, but you wouldn't i let me." Fatal Precaution.

The witness seemed reluctant to an swer, but, being pressed to do so, final ly stammered out: "Waal, squire, I took a little-just a couple of s'wallers, that's all."

'he Practical Joke the Humnorist Played on a Denver Friend. In his biography of Eugene Field lason Thompson tells the story of ; Ake Field played In Denver on his U. riend, Mr. Londoner, during a cam- U aign. As chairman of the Republican 0 ommittee Mr. Londoner was delegated > work up enthusiasm among the col- n red voters of Denver, and in an un- 0 uarded moment he took Field into his onfidence and boasted of his flattering ti rogress. The next morning the follow 0 ~ di ig advertisement, displayed with all ai 2e prominence of glaring scare heads, a ppeared: WANTED! e Every Colored Man In the City to ti Call at tr WOLFE LONDONER'S STORE. A Car Load of Georgia Watermelons b Just Received For a Special Distribution Among His a Colored Friends. 1 Come Early and Get Your Melon! -ka It is needless to say that -when Mr. is ,ondoner's store opened in the morn- it ig an ever increasing cloud of dusky li umanity, with teeth that glistened si rith the juice of anticipation, gathered a] bout the entrance. Business in the W tore was at a standstill, and travel on ie street was blocked. No explana- a on could appease the rising anger of " at dark multitude. It was melons or V riot-melons or that unheard of thing, colored landslide to the Democracy. ts Er. Londoner was at his wits' ends. 'here were no melons In th market " nd none expected. Just as Londoner d] -as preparing to abandon his store to 0 2e wrath of the justly incensed melon tl ianiacs a car load of magnificent mel- tl as dropped into one of the freight Il dings, and Londoner and the Repub- t can party were saved. Nobody ever I new how or whence that pink heart- V I manna came. The price was ex- r( rbitant, but that did not matter. Lon oner paid it with the air of a man Il ho had ordered melons and was in- 7 igant that the railway company had a isappointed him in not delivering them h ie day before. There was not a crack fl 1 the solid black Republican column N a election day. - But Field was not through with Lon- V ner. The colored brethren had to E ld their ratification meeting to in- fl orse the Republican nominations and iore especially to render thanks for r( le creation of watermelons and to the V jan who had paid for them out of sea- f >n. Of course Mr. Londoner was in- h ited to attend, and when it came his fil irn to address the meeting the chair- u] ian, a colored deacon of the church n1 -ere "Possum Jim" worshiped by the b: ame of Williams, introduced him as ft lows: s( "I now take great pleasure in Intro- tI acing to you our friend and brother, ie Hon.

LINCOLN REBELLED. n Occasion When Stanton Did Not Get His Papers Signed. Robert Lincoln when minister to ngland told a friend an incident of his fildhood which was deeply impressed ?on his memory, so illustrative was it his father's character. He was with his father in his cabi At one morning during the early years the war when Secretary Stanton 'as announced. Scarcely replying to te courteous greeting of the president, :r. Stanton walked directly up to the sk where Mr. Lincoln was sitting ad said, "Mr. President, I have come >r the papers that I brought you yes rday to be signed. "Well," said the president, with an cpression in his face something like iat of a convicted schoolboy, "the uth is, Stanton, they are not ready." "Well, then, those you had the day fore." "They are not ready either," was the swer, with a somewhat quizzical Ok. "But you have had some of them for whole week, and all I ask you to do to put your .nme to them. Come, do now! The whole batch will not take ilf an hour. I will wait while you gn. It is only a trifle I am asking, ad it is not like you to hinder our ork in this way." "A trifle!" echoed Mr. Lincoln, with deep gravity settling over his care orn countenance. "Do you know 'hat these papers are?" "Of .course I do," answered the secre try. "They are death warrants." "And you call signing a death war Lnt a trifle? Look here!" And he eew out from under his desk a basket -erfowing with papers. "Here are Le papers you have brought me during ke last week and that you have been ,ging me to sign, and every one of Lem will condemn a man to death if put my name to it. How can I sign hen I know so well what will be the sult?" "You must sign, Mr. President; you ust sign them. You are clogging the 'heels of government We have been a standstill for a week because you ive picked out every death warrant om the papers I have brought you. o wonder they have accumulated ut now we cannot wait any longer. e must have those papers, and you ust sign them." And, seizing a pen -om the rack, he dipped It in the ink. Back and forth, up and down the >om, strode the tall form, as was his ont when in perplexity. Suddenly his tce cleared, and he approached the marth, where there was a glowing coal me. Taking up the poker, he stirred a bright blaze. Then, almost run ag across the room, he picked up the isket of death warrants and tossed em all on the coals. A tongue of fire dzed them. and a puff of wind blew Lem up the chimney. "There, there; good riddance!" he uttered as he saw the ashes disap mr. Then he turned to Mr. Stanton, ho stood aghast and speechless for ice, and with a deprecating look said: "I couldn't help it, Stanton; I really uldn't. and I couldn't sign them.
