Early In the morning Jane's friends ' called 'fof' her, and they went away together -full of youth's enthusiasm , and anticipation.. They took the road to the river, and to the Sound of music and the falling and dipping of ' the oars they reached Richmond and soon , spread tbe con- tents of their hampers upon the grass under some great oaks In the seclud ed park. " After a happy, leisurely meal, they spent the rest of their holiday In wan- derlng through, ' the palace, until its melancholy, monastic grandeur sub dued them alfaost to silence. . It. was ' like passing, from death bnto life to come out of these caverns Into the light and glory? of the west- Cromwell Time formation. The next momr-nt Mrs, waffbam came hurriedly forward. '. ','ilothur,".-cried Jane, "wuai is the matter? , Wha,t baa happuiied?" And Mrs. Hwaflliam answered: "The strangest thing that ever hap pened in England." . . . Even while she spoke they heard Oen. Swaffham coming ' up the steps, the clatter of his arms emphasizing his perturbed feelings. ' He had scarcely entered the door ere Doctor Verity came Into the hall crying: "Is it true. Israel Is It true?" "Quite true." ' ' "And well done?" "Well done. I am sure of It." Men. and women went Into the par lor together, and a servant began to remove the General's cavalry boots and spurs. "I told you, Doctor, this morning, that a settlement of some kind must, come to-day. When I reached Whitehall I found the Lord General waiting for Sir Harry Vane and the members who had promised to come and continue the conference relating to the bill early In the day. The General was occupying himself with a book, but as the hours went by he grew restless and laid It down Then be-, .turned to me and said, 'Truly these men are long In coming are you ready, General?' and before I could answer be asked again 'ready and willing?' I told him a word would move my troop as one man If that word came from himself, and lie waited silently a little longer, Then Lord Cluny Neville came. in very hastily, and said a few words, I know not what they were, and he had scarce gone when Col. Ingoldsby en tered, and there was no secrecy then. f "'My lord!' he cried, 'Parliament Is Bitting at this moment, and Sir Harry Vane, Sidney and Henry Mar ten are urging the Immediate pass age of the bill so hateful to ' the whole nation.' "Then Cromwell roused himself bauble away!" like an angry lion. His passion at this perfidious conduct' leaped Into name, he shouted to Lambert and his own. troop of Ironsldes.j He gave me the signal I understood, and we went quickly to. the. Parliament house. "But. what "then!"! asked' Doctor Verity, his face burning with the eager soql behind it , ' . .: "I stood at the door watching hlnn my men being In the lobby. He went to his 'usual seat,', but In a very great and majestic manner, and for a- little while he-listened to the debate, "Then he. -beckoned Major General Harrison and told him he Judged 'it was" .high time to dissolve this Parliament.' .And Harrison told me this afternoon, that he advised Cromwell to consider what he would do, for It was a work great and dan gerous and who,, he asked, Ms suffi cient for it?' And Cromwell answer ed, 'The Servant of the Lord, he is sufficient,' yet ' he tat'ilown. again; looking at me as be did so, and I look ed back straight into his eyes that I and mine could be depended, on. , "In a few minutes the question for passing the bill was put, and the man could be restrained, ho longer. ' 1 He stood up, took off his hat, and looked around the House, and it quailed under his eyes, every man In. it shift ed on 'his seat and was uneasy. He began to speak, and It was with a tongue of flame. He reproached them for their self-seeking and their hypocrisy and oppression, and as he went on, there was the roar of a lion In his voice, and the members, being condemned of their own consciences. cowered before him." "Did no one open their mouth against him?" ' ' ' ' "No one but Sir Peter Wentworth. He said, 'My Lord General, this Par liament has- done great things for England,' and Cromwell answered, The spoke In the wheel that crea.ks most, does not bear the burden In the cart!' Then Sir Peter told Cromwefl his abuse of the Parliament was the more horrid because It came from the servant of ; the Parliament, the man they had trusted and obliged.". At these words Dr. Veritv lanehprt loudly-"Cromwell, the servant of such a Parliament!" he cried. "Not he-, what then, Israel?"' "He told Wentworth ' to he nniot He said he had heard enough of such talk, and putting on bis hat. ha trmk the floor of the House. I watched him as he did so. He breathed In. ward, like one who has a business, nt life and death in hand. I could M on his face that he was going to do me aeea tnat had been the pecret of his breast for many days: and hu walk was that quick stride with which he ever went to meet an enemy.. He stood In the middle nt the Honse, and bt-san accuse tJuu members ""personally. His words were swords. He flung them at the men as If they were javelins; . shot them In their faces as If from a pis tol. He told them that tbe Lord bad done with them. He, said they were no Parliament, and that he had bees sent t6 put an end to their sitting and their prating. "And at these words Cluny Ne ville spoke to the Sergeant, and he opened the doors, and some musket eers entered the House. Then Sir Harry Vane cried out, "Ibis is not honest, and Cromwell reminded him of his own broken promise, and they began to go out, at first slowly, and then In a hurry, treading on the heels of each other." .. "What of LeMhall? He has a stub born will." , "He sat still In the Speaker's chair, until Cromwall ordered him to come down, For a moment he hesitated, but Gen. Harrison said. 'I will lend you my band, sir;' and so he also went out." "But was there no attempt to stay such dismissals? I am amazed, dumb founded!" asaid Doctor Verity. "Alderman Allen, the Treasurer of the Army, as he went out said some thing to Cromwell which angered him very much; and he then and there charged Allen with a shortage of one hundred thousand pounds, and com-" mltted him to the care of a musket eer for examination. I tell you, there was no gainsaying , the Cromwell of this hour. He was more than mor tal man; and Vane and the others knew, if they had not known before, why he was never defeated In bat-.-tle." - - : "After the Speaker had left, what then?" ' - ' , , "His eye fell, upon the Mace, and he said scornfully to some of the Iron sides, 'Take that bauble away!" Then he ordered the musketeers to clear the House, he himself walking up to its Clerk and taking from nnder his arm the ' bill which had caused the trouble, and whlch was ready to s, , He, ordered "the man to go home, and be slipped away without a question. "Cromwell was the last soul tp leave 'the Chamber, and as he went out of It he locked the door and put the key in his pocket... He I then walked quietly back to his rooms In the Cockpit." ' , .' . . He will need God on bis right hand and on his left," said Doctor Verity. "More than we can tell will come of this implacable hostility. rancorous jealousy, everlasting envy and spite.. The members " "The members," Interrupted Gen. Swaffham, "have tied - themselves, hands and feet, with cords of their own spinning, and Oliver Cromwell holds tbe ends of them. They will not dare to open their mouths." (To be continued.) The Cost of Census-Taking. , The difference between the cost of securing the returns from the six simple questions asked in 1790, and that of the extended Inquiry made a century later is Illustrated by the per capita cost, which in 1790 was 1.13 cents, and In 1900, 15.S cents. In 1790 Virginia was the most populous state in the Union, having 747.610 inhabitants. The records of the Treasury department show that at the first census, the cost of making the enumeration in that state Was $7,553.90. Moreover, at that enumera tion, tbe underpaid assistant mar shals supplied their own blanks, an Item which was of considerable Im portance Is tbe days when all paper was made laboriously by band.

American Absinthe. 'Absinthe, 'the green terror of France,' " said a botanist of the Agri cultural K department, . "is now being produced .-in considerable quantities in this country and. Is being used to an alarming extetii. In Bome sections of Wisconsin wormwood is being cul tivated, and It Is from this plant that oil is distille. for--making absinthe. There are several wormwood farms in trat. state. The5 Wisconsin growers of worm. wood and distillers of the oil at first snipped nearly ail their output to Europe, but now they find a good market for it In this country, and at almost fabulous prices. , Of course, the drug houses of-America furnish a ready home market. , The, oil is em ployed in many ways,-but ' Its- chief uses; arf in. the making of absinthe and liniments."

It is JUst 113 years since the first lifeboat .was launched, Lionel Lukin, a coach builder, of Long Acre, London, was the invn'fpr A hundred years ago there were- thirty lifeboats sta tioned on the, different coasts of Bri tain. The Royal National Lleboat In- stitution was founded in 1828. Since that day it has saved 44,000 persons from watery graves. . In 1849 a lifeboat capsized on the Herd Sands, and twen ty out of a crew of twenty-four 'were drowned.

In 1S83, and again in 1887. prizes for the best lifeboat were of fered, but It seems impossible ever to design a boat capable of withstanding all the risks of a tempestuous sea. Uncertainties. .

The French .were so puzzled by their appearance .that. though they landed, they could not make up their minds to advance until, sufllcient time had elapsed, to raise the country and bring forward a real force strong enough to beat them, back. Another case In point was fur nished by tbe milkmaids of . Dort, in Holland, who gave timely warning of ths approach of a band of tnvadlng Spaniards and thus saved their city.

Heat From Acetyline. ; t, A comparison between' the heating properties of acetyline and coal gas shows that tbe heat units developed per cubic foot are 1, 850 and 630, re spectively, the temperature of the acetyline flame being about 2,000 de grees Fahrenheit. ' With an acetyline burner consuming two cubic feet of gas an hour a quart of water : was brought from a temperature of about 60 degrees to tile boiling point In about 8 minutes.
