7 SELECTED STORY. Uollndonnn, Whon tho new doan canio lo St. III lary, ho doemcd it nccoaaary to juallfy hta appolntmont ln tho oyoa of tho world at largo and tho Cloao ln partlcu lar by makiug cbangoa and Innovatlona right and loft. Among hia othor ro forma tho doan had inBialod on hls rlght to tho oxclualvo posacaslon of tho anciont bowling groon whlcb stood on tho north sldo of tho Gloao. Boforo ho camo tho canona had mado uao of it in common, but tho doan diacovorcd in tho old chaptor rccorda an ontty whlch dotormined once for all that "yo an cionto gardon, oncompaaaod on four sidoB wlth tho atono walla aot up by Prior Itichard do Sotria, having alloya BpaciouB and fair and now commonly callcd yo Bowllng-Greono, npportain oth unto Mr. Dcano for hia delecta tion." Thero was no disputing tho record,and whon"Mr. Deane" requoat cd tho canona to roatoro to him thoir koya of tho door bonoath tho old Nor man gatoway loading to tho oncloauro tho rcqueat was at onco oboyod. At loaat it waa oboyed by thrco out of tho four rcaidentiarioa. Tho fourth, Canon Joyco, no doubt would havo aent in Uia key to tho dean had ho bcon nblo to find it, but it had beon mialaid moat unaccountably. "Ethol," ho aald to hia daughter, "I can't flnd tho koy of tho bowling groon anywhorc. It waa in ita uaual placo ycaterday, but to-day it haa dlaappear cd. Tho nail ia thoro, but tho koy is gono." "Havo you aakod tho Borvanta?" Bue gestod tho daughtor, with a awoot smilo on her protty faco, and tho frank and opon look of innoconco in her brown oyes. "Yca." "Woll?" "Thoy can tell mo nothing. 'Por haps Miaa Ethel knowa," is " all thoy say." A ringing laugh camo from Miaa Ethel. "Ian't that juat liko sorvanta, papa, dcar? Thoir ono idoa when any thing ia miesing ia to tell you to flnd out from somebody elso," and tho sil very laugh began acain. "AU the eamo, It'a vory annoying. Tho dean wanta it." "I know," replied Ethel, "and I think it vory uncivil of him, that'a all I can aay. I wonder you and tho othor canona submit to it. We havo alwaya had tho uao of the bowling green, and I consider it a pieco of the most" But her father did not wait to hear the conclusion of tho aentenco. Ethel Joyco and her father were din ing at the genoral'e. It waa a largo dinner party to welcomo tho now dean. Ethel was enjoying heraelf immensely. Major Brooke, tho second in command of the troopa quartered in tho barracks at St. Hilary, had taken her into din ner. Sho had met him aoveral timea before, at a cricket match or two on tho cavalry ground, at ono or two gar den partiea, and notably laat week at tho offlcers' ball. Ho wae a big, broad ahouldered dragoon guard "none of your dapper hussars," thoueht Ethel, with pride bla faco bronze3 with tho auna of Egypt and India, bo that hia blue eyea took a deeper blue by con trast. "How sweet your daughter ia look ing to-nightl" aaid Mra. Marjoram to the canon, with genune admiration. It waa true. Ethel waB radiant in a soft Bilky gown of pale yellow. Hound her neck was an old faahioned amber neck lace, while in her black hair an amber ornament waa tastefully diaplayed. Tho whole was a perfect harmony in black and yellow. The major and ehe were laughing and talking together moat happily. "Been botanizinglately Miaa Joyco?" aaked tho major. The man of Dlood waa himself a keen botaniat. "No, I havon't. I havo had bo much to do," was Ethel'a answor. "Ah, it'a only idle mon liko us sol diers who can flnd timo for such inno cent amuBements, I auppoae, eh?" "Idleneas and innocenco are raro companions, Major Brooke. You know the old rhymo, 'Satan flnds some mis chief atill,' etc." "Well, then, and what particular form of miachiof havo you been up to lately?" aaked tho major, with a laugh. "But bofore you confcss your aina Miaa Joyco, I want to remind you of a prom iae you made me about a certain flower." "A certain flower?" "You don't mean to aay you have forgotton? What a clever man I ahould be if I only rememborod balf aa woll aa you forgetl" "Now you're getting cauatic and im peraonally poraonal, which ia horrid." "But have you forgotten?" Aa the major spoke ho looked at her with hia clear blue oyos aa though ho would havo read her vory aoul. Ethel had no moro forgotten tban the major, but that did not prevent her from liftlng her oyoa to moet tho full gnzo oi hia. Sho raiaed her oyebrowa slightly, as if aho woro Btill hopelosaly ln the dark and wero waltlng with childliko eim plicity on this unknown and undreamt of subject. "Frailly, thy name ia womanl" elghed the major, with a mock tragic air. "I can't compliment you, Major Brooke, on that quotation. It'a not po llto, and, woreo than that, It'a bo very hacknoyedl" "Quotationsl Ilikotbatl Who flrat began tbem, ob, Miaa Joyco? But wo'ro wandoring from tho aubiect. Forgivo mo for reminding you. Don't you romemDor teinng mo at the uancelaBt Tuoaday that you had tho deadly nightshade Atropa belladonna, you know Krowing ln tho bowHncf green of the Gloso? l'vo not Been it sinco I was in lrelanu, and you prom IbccI mo you'd sbow it me." "Did I?" Mlss Joyco looked charm ingly innoceut of any auch undertak ing. "Yes, you did. Suroly you cannot uuvu iorgouon teinng mo how It grow in ono cornor among tho ruina, and how ita long palo campanulato corol la" "Oh, Major Brookol I wiah you would not bu ao Bcientiflo." "You remombor now?" "Certalnly, tho deadly nightshade Is merei" Tho noxt day Ethol Joyco and Major The Escape, i I vrnen n man itiu a chance Ito cscanc from nrlinn lin sWdocsii't stop to aruo about u, ne oreaks out as qulckly I as evcr he can, He knowa I that evcry momcnt's delay may leoscn hls chancet of $ i capc; but when n man is alck he too often postpones hia opportunity of eettlng well nnd says: "O, pethaps I'll oc ucuer ncxt wecic" or "uext month." Tlio wseks nna montus sco J on and every day his chance I of cscapliiff from thc dttnfreon I of discnse grows smallcr. The "Golden Mcdical Dis covcry" origlnatcd by Dr. R.V. I'ierce. of BulTalo, N.Y., i offers a certain mean9 of res. I cue to cviry man and woman who Is sufferinR from any form of weakness or diseasc due to imccrfect nutritlon. I This marvelous "Dlscovcry" I creates good appctitc, good ' digestion, pood blood, good lic.-uui. it glves solid flcsh, mus- scular strcngth, jstcady ncrvcs and keen .wits. It ' holn.t vnti sto think cieany success fully. Mr. Prank A. Startz, of Fayettevllle, Fayette Co., Texas, writes lu a lttter to Dr, Plerce: " It affords mc plcasure to tcstlfy to the rcmnrkabta curntlvc power of Ur. rlerce's Golden Mcdical Dlscovery. I was sevcrcly nffllcted wlth trouble ln my lungs splttliig up blood, and was so weak I was unable to continue my work. I trled several retuedles whlch gave me no rellef, and I had commeuced to think there was aa hope for me. Ur. rlerce's Golden Mcdical Dls covery was recommendcd to me so I trled It and began to Improve at once, and was soon able to resume work. I consider it a wouderful medl. clne." Every man who vant9 to save doctor's bills suould send 21 one-cent stamps, the cost of mailing only, to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y., for a copy of his tooo-page illustrated book," Common Sensc Mcdical Adviscr," in paper covers ; or 31 stamps for cloth-bound copy. Brooko found themselves within tho do lightful incloauro of the bowling green. "By iovo, Misa Joyce, this is a moat cbarming. moat romantic spotl" "iea, ia it notv bo quiot and ro tlred. No ono over comcs here. It is bo difforont from thorestof thoClose." "What delicious shade, too, undor thiaoldwalll Shall wo sit down here and onjoy it a little?" The two sat down. "I call thiB a porfect little paradiso," he went on, with effusion. "It waa a splendid idea to put this seat hcro and make this jolly honeysucklo climb all over it. One gots roposo and sweet nesa and boauty all at tho Bametime." Tho major waa getting a little out of hia dopth, but Ethol knew what he meant. She sat tapping tho ground with ono little foot which peeped co- quotishly from bencath her dainty mua- lin irocK. "Oh, how ab8urd you are, Major Brookel Beaides, I thought you sol diera did not really care for anything ao peacoful." "Don't wo, tnougni wny, aioiiow could livo here forever if only" Maior Brooke pnuaed, Ethel had meanwhilo taken off her garden hat and was swinging it idly to and fro in her hand. "Welll If only what? I know, of coursol If only thoro were no such things as orderly rooms or paradcs or general inspections and unlimited bot any inatead. But oven then you would not be hoppy. You haven't the truo Bciontific spirit." She let her hat fall. "How do you mako that out, Miss Joyce?" "Why, I beliovo you'vo forgotten what you camo for this af ternoon. You don't seem in any hurry to flnd tho belladona." "Ah, Misa Joyce, I've found thii belladonna!" Anybody who know Major l'rpoko well would have been aatoundta to to have heard him say this. Ho wis an old public achool boy; ho had beon to Sandhurst; he was a good, aound, eolid EngliBhman, brought up to ontertain a profound respect for hia profeaaion and for him8olf, and yot hero in a moment he had fallen from those heightB into the abyss of mere puorility. It 1b im possible to say what might have hap- Eened noxt had not a silly bee come uzzlng from the honeysucklo to hover round the major's nose. "Come along, Major Brooke, tho belladonna you want to seo is in this corner over here." Tho gracef ul girl rnn off to a remoto corner among a mass of ruina, ovor grown with Bhrubs and tangled creep era. "Ah, thero it isl" criod the major, with enthuaiasm. He bent over to pluck tho flowor at tho samo moment as Ethel. Just aa she was cluching tho stcm his big hand wont to do tho aamo tbing, wlth the roBult that his palm fell on the back of her hand completoly. It was an accident, but ono of thoso accidents, it muat bo confesBcd, which belong to that largo class that "will happon." Major Brooko's attitude was auch that ho waB obliged to continue to grasp Ethel'a hand a littlo longer in order to recover hia equllibrium. It waa all ovor in a moment or two, but whon hand touchca hand thus for tho flrat timo emotious are not to bo measured by any such coarao mechanical stand ard aa a clock. Ethol wb8 flrat to recover herself. "Really, Major Brooke, how atupid of me!" she laughed a littlo nervously. "I wbb ao anxious for you" . "Awfully clumsy, l'm afrald I was Miss Joyce 1" "They stood looking at ono anothor ho rathor confused and ahy, aho with a pretty bluah, tho telltalo of hor feol inga. Ho took her hand in his. It waB no question of an accident now. At that moment a aound wus heard of approaching footstops. "Wait a moment. Stay here for me," ciied Ethol, hurriedly anatching hor hand away, "whilo I fotch my hatl" No aoonor had Ethol loft him tban ho eaw tho dean opnroachlnir. Ho thought thero waa no polnt ln ottraet- ing tlie attention ot tliat auguat persou ago, and ho was glad to bo half obecur f d by tho ahadow. But it would havo been a atrango thing for a man nearly ais fcot bigh to romain unobsorvod evon in the placo whero the major was standing. Tho dean aaw him, but fall- ed to recognlzo him as a fellow guost 01 tuo provious evoning. "I bog your pardon. Bir," aaid tho dean stifily. "I don't know how you obtained cntranco to this part of tho Closo, but this ground ia atrictly pri vato." If tho major had aaid and dono what ho ought, ho would havo grootod tho doan at onco. shakon hands with him, explalned wno ho was and how ho camo to bo thoro and how ho hopod to havo tho ploasuro of calllng upon him at tho deanory boforo long. Tho dean would probably havo roplied that ho was ploased to ronow Major Brooko's acquaintanco then and thoro and would bo dolightod to seo him at tho doanory whonovor ho should do him tho honor to call. But tho major was not quito himsolf just then, and ho was ln a mood to bo oaaily ruflled. Ho rosontod tho doan's mannor and answorod with a porfect asBumption of Bang froid: "Prlvato? So I undorstand, sir. I was enjoying its charming boauty all tho moro on that nccount." "I am afraid you do not qulte undor stand. This Is tho dcan'a prlvato ground. You woro not alono, air!" "Well, really" oxpoatulatod tho ma jor. "I do not know who your friond or companion was." And I am not going to toll you, thought the major. "But whoovor ho was ho gavo you onlranco to this ground improperly." "Sir I" oxclaimed tho major. He bogan to think things woro going too far. "Yesl This ground is always locked and tho key is kopt at tho doanory. No ono can galn cntranco oxcopt by mcans of that koy, and tho poreon who intro duced you muat bo in posseBsion of a second koy in doflanco of my authorily. You will bo doing mo a favor, sir," contlnucd tho dean, unbending, for ho porceived that hia zeal for his own au thority had carried him rathor far, "if you will inform mo which of tho cathe dral ofHcials it waa who let you in horo this afternoon." Major Brooko was in a position of considorable awkwardncss, but happily Mias Joyce's timely arrival rolioved him of hia embarrasamont. Sho had heard tho laat part of tho convcrsation as Bho camo onco moro upon the sceno. "Oh, Mr. Dean!" sho cried, with protty trepidation, "l'm tho culpritl" "MiBS Joyco 1" oxclaimed tho dean. "Yes; I kept fathor's koy for a day or two longor that I might ahow Major Brooko tho Atropa belladonna, which growa here. I havo ehown it him thiB afternoon, and as I havo no further use for the key now nllow mo to do what ought to havo beon dono before, give it up to you." The dean took tho key from Ethel. He and tho major shook hands, with niutual oxplanationa and apologica. Miss Joyco and Major Brooko soon found othor placea which gavo equally favorable opportunities for the study of botany. The Atropa belladonna, howovor, has just lately yioldod in interost to an other flower tho orange blossom, to wit. Madame. A Phlllpplno Romauco. About tho middlo of tho present con tury, when Dumas the elder waa at the height of hia career, and the origin of many an intoresting pieco of French llterature waa delightfully uncertain, a coupio of worka appeared that drew at tention to the mysteriouB and far-off Philippinea. In his "Thouaand and One Fhantoma," iaaued aorially in tho Constiiutionnel, Dumas mado frce with a fellow countryman who had been tho horo of certain surpriaing adventurea in the Pearl of tho Orient, and tho hero thereupon, not caring to flgure as a feuilleton, got out his "Adventurea of a Gentleman of Brittany in the Philip pinea." Somo persons, howovor, thought the hero would havo been truer to lifo as tho crcation of Dumas; that aa a roal gentleman of Brittany ho was only another living liar, and that, in fact, hia romantic narrative was tho work of a new Selkirk and Defoo com bination. But the Selkirk, it was contended. waB woll known in France, and had been both well and favorably known in tho Philippinea; serioua and truatwor thy writers had recordod thomaelvea aB eyowitnesaes of his exploits, and, at least, the museum in Boston and tho Musoum of Anatomy in Paris wero tho richer for his having lived in the back woods of Luzon. Brlefly, horo waa a Frenchman, who, having doubled tho Capo a aovonth timo, haa then etayed in tho Enchanted Ialands a full scoro years. Ho had beon a Crusoo, with a faithful Man Friday whom be had ob tained by reforming a bandit cbioftain; with a kingdom all his own, with a famlly whom he had loft in his littlo island gravoyard. Paul Proust do la Gironniero waa countod in tho pedigreo of an anciont Hiedmontoao family that camo ovor tho St. Bornard and into Brittany in tho days of Louis XIV., and soon bocamo rich onough .to have access to tho no bility and to contract "tho moat flatter ing alliancea." Paul's father waa born at Nantos, where his ancestors had held high ofilco under the crown. His woalth was swopt away by the revolu tion; and ho died on a littlo placo owned by his wife. Paul's mother gavo tho boya auch educalion as sho could, and tbon thoy wont to seok thoir fortuno. Ono died at Madagascar; another re turncd from Forto Bico to dio in his mother's arms; tho huaband of one of Paul's two aiators died in Mauritiua, and anothor brothor died whilo vlsiting Paul in the Phllipplnoa. Paul waa born at Nantcs; thero ho atudiod medlcino: and thonco, a moro Btripltng, he aailed as Bhip's Burgeon to tho far East, embarking for tho fourth timo on Octobor 0, 1810, and caating ancbor about tho ond of May, 1830, in tho bay of Manila. Ho landed at Ca vite, onjovcd tho whirl of Manila bo cioty, atudled tho Tagaloc, wont among tho nativoa in tho mountaina, began tho career of sporlsmansblp that waa to culminato in hunting the stag and tho buffalo and in killlng caymana and boa conatrlctors, and flnally allowcd his Bhip to go homo and loavo him in tho motropolis of tho archipoiago. Ho had roaolvod to becorao a rosldont physician. Ho faced tho fanaticlam of tho cholora maaaacro of 1820, and ho had a clean ahlrt in hls hat and a dol lar ln hia pockot. Findlng a rich old don nearly blind, ho cured ono oyo and mado a glasa ball for the socket of tho othor. and hia rcputatlon waa eatab llshod. Paul bocamo Doctor Pablo, and surgoon of a rogimont of regulars and of a battallon of milltia. But whon tho loadora of tho Novalka rcbolllon of 1823 woro shot, ho had occaslon to call a Spanish informor a coward, und somo timo thoreaftor, having words with tho govornor-gonoral ovor a quee tion of ethica, ho rcsigncd and was thoncoforth a sort of aurglcal frco lanco to tho pooplo of Luzon, Tho travola of La Glrouniere ln the island, though undertaken incidentally to profcBBlonal duty or out of mere cunoaity or a dcsire to go somcwhere. aro aciontiflcally intereatlng, and will bo aa important lo tho hrstorian as many of tho manuscript accounta that aro rollcd up in tho cloistral archives. Ho oxplorcd cavos, lakos, mountaln fastncsses and immonso forcsts; alept in treotops and on tho tidal sanda; learned tho ways of tho tribes and gath ored legends; attondcd tho Tlnguian brain foast; sketched tho interior of Igorroto huts and carriod off tho skolo ton of a Ncgrito woman. La Gironnioro's most valuablo con tribution to tho clvillzatlon of tho island waa hia colony of Jala-Jala. Bo foro his rcaignation had bcon accoptcd, Sonor Pablo, who was known among tho nativoa aa Malamit Oulou, or "Cool Head," had accured of tho Miniater of Financo a sito for a modcl farm in tho mountainous ponlnsula that oxtonds southward into tho boautiful Lako of Bay at tho hoad of tho Paeig. Horo, with his dovoted wifo, and commia sioncd to subdue aB ho might tho piratoa and banditti of thia wild region, ho foundod among theaovictims of Spaln's extortion and misrulo a proaporous and orderly community. Asaiatcd by theso industrious and loving noighbora, and hoartily Becondcd by tho onco droaded Chloftain Alila, by a Malay-Japaneso Eriost whom tho ArchblBhop had told lm nobody could over livo with, and by hia evor-inapiring Auna, tho "Quoon of Jala-Jala," ho convorted a forost and a malarial swamp into a thriving town aurroundod with timberland, paaturo grounda, and rich flelda of rice, indigo, sugar cano, tobacco, and coffoe. His hords alono comprised 3,000 head of oxon, 800 buffaloes and C00 horses. For tho introduction and perfection of coffeo culturo, ho received a prize of S7,000 from tho Spanish Govornmont. Here ho built a church and achool, largo warchouaeB, and a manufactory, and the travclors who visited his colony woro hospitably entertained in an elo gant reaidenco that ho orected for tho wifo whose early doath aent him back to France a cruahed and diBheartenod man. Mmo. do la Gironnioro waa a native of the Philippinea, and it waa owing to Paul'a Creolo marriage that he obtain ed conceaaions untll then obstinatoly refused to foreignors. An Amorican friend, probably "mon amt," M. Rus sell, de la maison de commerce Rua sell Sturgis" had callcd his attention to a young lady in mourning who passed for one of the moat beautiful senoras of the town, and ho had vainly oxplor ed all the satons of Binondoc for an in troduction, when ono day aa he was writing a prescription for a chance pa tient in one of tho flne houses in tho Faubourg of Santa Cruz the sudden rustling of a silk drces wbb followcd by the apparition of the lady. She was eighteen years of ago. Her fcaturcs were rogular and placid, her hair black and beautiful, and her eyes largo and exprcasive. ThiB was Anno-Maria Favoa, Marquoss de las Salinas, tho wealthy and charming young widow of a colonol of tho guards who had mar ried her when but a child. Paul stammercd, got out of tho houae awkwardly, went homo in a fover, called again, and six months lator waa tho huaband of on oxcellont wifo. Her for tuno, $136,000, inveated in a Mexican venturo, was soized by Colonel Itur bide, who became omperor of Mexlco, and wob dethroncd and shot. Thia excellent woman boro every trial with patience. Sho followcd her huaband with tho moat unbounded confldence. Sho welcomed tho European visitors who camo to the colony and aho put clothes on the backs of tho naked do lagas. Quietly Bho laid her little girl in the grave, and uncomplainingly, as she bid adiou to the boy who waa soon to follow, sho went down into it her self. She waa a teacher of goodnesa; the narrative of le gentilhomme breton ainks to a song for the dead upon every mention of her wortb; and tho croaa t " tho Leglon of Honor, accorded him a requeBt of Marahal Soult, was lll- Tecomponao for tho othor self thui ho had loBt in tho Lady of Jala Jala.

Originally tho opening waB not different from any othor coal hole. It waa of ordinary Bize, and was cloaed with a hoxagonal cover. Then a largo pieco of tho atono waa broken off tho aidowalk, onlorging tbo holo to a groat oxtent. When tho stono waa replacod by a shoot of iron, the hoxagonal opening was olongated, so that tho sbapo of a coffln was form ed. Thon tho pedeatrians along South Clark atreot had thoir troublca. It is aBserted that attention waa flrat callcd to tho ominous holo in the aido walk whon a man had hia log sprained by a misstop on tho covor. A numbor of persons witnossed tho accident, and at tho samo timo noted tho peculiar sbapo of tbo covor. It was not long boforo ovorybody seomod to bo aware of tho caskotllke flgure.

Pains 111 tho back or loins, sick headncho, un easiness of the stomacb, cbilliness, loss of strength and energy, etc,, are some of tlie first symptoms of kidney trouble, Morrow's Kid neoids, taken nt tue very first, will give al most instant relief. If tlie ailment is allowed to gain ground, of courso it will reriuiro a longer treatment with Kidneoids. Morrow's Kidneoids will not work miracles, but they will curo beyond a sbadow of doubt all kidney dlsorders and make tho kidnoys sound and useful as thoy were when in tbeir original perfect healtli. As long os tho world stands and mankind is nmenable to nature'sa laws and suffers from disease seemingly bis birtbrigbt Morrow's Kidneoids will hold a pre-eminent place in Materia Medica.
