THE CHEMISTS STORY. I nm a chemist I am the ocenpnnt ol this refionriiblo end important position iu the medical collego of P , It was about 1 o'clock on a stormy evening that I bade good night to my student, Tom Richards, at the door ot my laboratory, at the south end of the college buildings. Tom wua very anxious to know what would keep me np after 13 o clock, so I told him I was about to commeuco an alyzing tha stomach of a Mrs. Johnsou, whose husband lay in P jail, just across the road from tho college, on sus picion that ho was the murderer. As Tom wns passing out of tho college yard throngh tho gate, Ins head turned, and bidding me good night, lie brushed against a man standing with his buck to tao college aud hia face to the prison. The street lamp showed mo thut the; man whs in police uniform. Ro-cntering my laboratory I took down a gliws jar from the nhclf and sat down behind my sink to examine it. An hour had passed since the departure vf young Richards. I hud labored hurd to discover traces of the poison in all thi3, but had been unsuccessful. Joo John son, the suspected man, had been a stu dent of mine a few years before. 1 thought him a good hearted, intelligent fellow, only a little wild, aud really bo g:m to hopo that ho might prove inno cent, when, among the macerated food, I come upon u small, infinitesimal white grain. By curef ul manipulation and the uso of my magnifying gloss I managed to get this upon a piece of smoked gloss and examined it. I was then certain I had discovered ar senic, but to make assurance doubly sure I determined to apply a well known teat for that poison. "Yes," I exclaimed, as I saw tho fatal blazon, "Joo Johnbou is tho murderer of his wife I With tho evidence of that mark to back mo no power can save him." "Do yon really think so?" said a calm voice behind mo. I turned quickly and discovered a tall Lank policeman, having red, watery eyes, standing at my office door and sinring in. His body looked as if it had been rolled out long before his hands like a molasses candy stick. He hod no ex pression at all in his face, and his police man's hat was so largo that it threatened to settle down on his shoulders. His uni form reassured me and I addressed him with some impatience. "My friend, I suppose I aia wanted to utteml an inquest, or what is your pur pose?" I was police surgeon as well as coroner. "Don't bother, professor; the man ain't dead yet. but they say he will be before morning." "Wluit's tho matter with himr "Brain disorder, I mean something wronir here." I touched my forehead, and so did he as ho said: "Ay, as I thought Fd drop in and tell you if you were going to the station to-morrow to take a look and see if it is post mortem or nut. Besides I wanted to see whore I could always find you in case of need." I bowed, and attributed his visit to a feelinz of curiosity. He sat on the sink. and while his ryes wandered about like one who felt himself called upon to say something, he said: "Professor, there has been an accident this afternoon terrible, too." "What was iK" "Nitro glycerine explosion tip in the iron mills a hundred fellow mortals busted." "Sad."" "Affecting, very." Here he rubbed his mouth with the 1ack of his hand. "Prof ewor, what is that nitro glycerine?" "It'a a very dangerous article," I an swered, happy to display my knowledge. "It lias nearly twice the destructiveness of gunpowder, but, unlike it, docs not explode mt the application of heat A red hot coal dmppl into it will not ex plode it It will freeze. It is yellow and greasy-" "Von don't man to say so," aaid the ofHcr. intTTuiHng me in diagrwble tones in the middle of a choir extract from one of try lertnrv. "Why, but yon havvn't toll me how it goes off. If tb fire wen t burst it, what In (heia wiiir I t.H Mr if it wer ;rwd, cc acy thine; fell on it it would expire. "Plare it on-It tbe cruW of a HJer mm !r-:ke it with a hamiaT, let a weixht fa rm it from a bfcf "Yr sai l tbe tas-n.

"No'f" I heard the policeman remark in deliberate Yankee tones, "you don't Bar so?" The next moment I lay on my back, a gag In my mouta, yrrtWy trigntened and sick at heart Over me stood the policeman and the first thing that funo tionary did waa looking me straight in the face to take off his nose. He then rid himself of his eyebrows, hair and cap, and became a determined looking fellow, with the eyes of a flend and the nose of a Roman. "So you think," aaid the metamor phosed, in the tones of a gentleman, "that nothing can save Je Johnson from the rope? Poor follow! It dore look like ltt But my dear professor, J oe Johnson is fortunate enough to have in mo a dovoted friend as well as brother. I have undertaken to save him, and he shall be saved. In order to accomplish this end it will be necessary to remove from tho face of tlie earth not only ths stomach of his miserable wifo yonder, bnt also, my dear professor I am sorry to be obliged to say it, for I believe you were my brother's teacher and friend yourself as well." I saw that he was in deadly earnest "Your death must apparently result from accident ut least so it must seem to the authorities. My brother is in jsil and they will not suspect him, and they certainly will not suspect me." What terrible deed waa in this "brain hatching was ho going to murder me? Was it myself who was to hang, instead of Johnson? No; yes. He placed the line pulley like over an arm of alianging chandelier. This was altogether too slight a support even for one of my tender frame. It was not to be hanging, then. Under the weight on tho floor he placed a can of nitro-glycerino; I recognized tho yellow string; it was a fuse, aud it would burn in sixty minutes. It would run across the marble Blab; there was no hope of igniting any substance that would warn my friends. "Do you begin to see through it?" asked Joe Johnson's brother. I believe I cursed him with my eyes. I could only breathe through my nos trils, and great veins were swelling and growing hot in my forehoad. Drawing a match from his pocket he lighted and applied it to the f nse; that little tyrant that gavo a mau an hour to live, to kui him at the end of it that littlo irre sponsible teiTor that, less merciful than Providence, told a mau the second he was to die, if fright and horror spared him to himself. Slowly tbe flames cropt snake like around the twine. "In one hour," said the prisoner's brother, "yon will bo in hoavon or hell. I will watch with you for half an hour, and tho ether half you will spend alone." Ho sat down some minutes in a chair watching the flume. Then he arose and took a piece of porcelain, with tho mur derer's name thereon, from the table, and shook his hood gloomily. "I nin chemist enough to know it is arsenic." ho said. "Yes, tliose bright, metallic eyes, a betrayal of the guilty I Science, thou wouldst kill my brother thou shalt save him. Let mo see in whose hands thou art the most power ful." Tho half hour wore slowly away. Oh, heavens! What agony did I suffer I Not for myself, but for my child. The fuse burned on on. The half hour is np. The brother of the murderer rises to go. Joy. "Commit your soul to God's keeping," he said. "You hold tho evidence of my brother's guilt nothing can save ypx. now." With that he turned to take his hat from off the table covered with the crimson cloth beneath which hid my priceless boy. Something attracted his attention. Ho held out his bauds and reached forward. I thought he had dis covered my boy. No; ho was lifting something in either hand the wires of the electric battery. In another instant iny boy had leaped from under tho table, and was turning the crank fast and furi ously. The murderer's brother was in the power of my boy. He could not drop tho wires; he was holplesx. ' How my boy cried for help! The old college rang I with his voico. Tho prisoner 8 brother added his voice to my boy's in his agony. In an instant a great length burned away. It would just Inst five minutes and no more. "Father!" shouted my boy, "if no a sistnneo comes this villain must die with its. I dure not free hi in. Hclpl help! help!" Alas! I could not answer him. Thank God! But some one else did. The fu.se is burned up. The rope is on fire the nitro glycerinct The door opens; Tom Richards, on a midnight visit to the sick, has heard the cry; bs comprehends all; seizes the ran in his Laud, ths weight denreuds indeed, but not on the death dealing oil. No; down it goes through the office floor down, down, like aa evil spirit to give back a dull metallic echo from tbe stones of the cellar beneath. We are saved. Joe Johnnon, the prisoner, was hanged, but his brother remains unpunished by th law, for he stabbed himself with a knife and thus escaped tbe hangman's rope. IL IL in Atlanta Ccnstitntiou.

After the house adjourned Congress man Bidden, of New York, brought the gavel down with great dignity and call ed tho pages to order, writes Amos J. Cummings. A page three feet high moved that the house go into committee of the whole on tho state of the Union for the consideration of a bill inoroasing the salaries of the employes of tho honso. Bolden put tho question with the most profound gravity and it wos carried. Thereupon the geniul congressman call ed the smallest page ou tho floor to tho chair, retired to his seat and enjoyed the fun for nn hour or more. Then a tow headed page moved that the committee rise and report tho bill favorably to the house, Tho motion was carried, and Mr. Boldon again re sumed the chair. The three foot pago descended tho stops and appeared at the bar. lie reported the proceedings of the committee with precision and dispatch. Thon the previous question was ordered, the bill received its third reading and was put upon its final pasnage. It was carried. Tho little page gravely moved to reconsider it and lay that motion upon the ttblo. "There being no objeotiou," said Bolden, "it is bo orderod." Young Dean Hulford, a nephow of Whistling Elijah, then moved that the houso ad journ. This was carried, and Mr. Bel den gave the dosk a parting whack and received the congratulations of tho pages. Cleopatra, at the Fair. A citizen of Alexandria, Egypt, named Alexander Tugliaferro, has written to the World's fair mauagomont inclosing a photograph of a sarcophagus, which he believes and claims to bo that of Cleo patra. Ho says it was recently discov ered in Cesar's camp, near Alexandria. After paying the Egyptian government its dues the writer says ho sold it to a friend for speculation. When tho sar cophagus was openod the contents fell in ashes with the exception of the skeleton, which is still preserved. Mr. Tagliaforro says he is prompted to negotiate with tbe exposition authorities from notices which he has seen in newspapers of the United States announcing that the khe dive of Egypt has been asked by the di rectors of the exposition for the mummy of Rameees. He begs to offer for sale this sarcophagus and skeleton for tho sum of 13,000 sterling on the spot, the inference being thut the purchaser will be required to pay freight. In explain ing the features of tills tomb be states that tlie five faces on throe sides are posi tively the images of Cleopatra. Chicago MuiL How ta Keep Flh When Caught. The angler should Uko care of his fish after ho has caught them. It is discredit able to fetch back a lot of sun and wind dried fish, all curled np and stiff.

During the rago of a fierce forest firo tho tmnk of the tree was consumed , by tho flame. A party of Indians who were passing through the woods stopped to light their pipes, when tho image of an Indian warrior, with tomahawk in hand, was discovered underneath the ashes of the burning tree. The scciio which followed Is described as being met remarkable. The Indians , were scared ro badly that thoy lost all self control and a regular panic ensued, the Indians rushing madly through tho woods and yelling ut the top of their ' voices. As soon as word could bo com tunuicutcd to the remaining members of tho tribe, some 300 in numlwr, a hurried consultation was held, at which it was decided that tho reservation should be . immediately abaudoned.

The petrification was perfect. The war costume wns as natural as lifo, there "being a parfoct imprint on tho stone of both gun aud tomahawk, which were buried alongside the body. The peculiar formation of stone presents an imposing appearance, and, but for tho occasional creases caused by insects, would be clear of any imperfections. A largo, hollow oak was selocted, the top sawed oft about fourteen feet from tho ground, and the petrified body placed upright therein, to remain for ever.
