Riginald Hanscomb stopped in the hall and nervously fumbled at the rim of his hat, meanwhile gazing into Poca hontas Poindexter’s eyes with a fond ness that the beautiful girl could not mistake. He opened his lips as if about to speak, but the words that he sought to ■ utter would not come and the fair maiden gave a low, sweet sigh that was ■ calculated to fill his heart with blow i holes. Yet he stood there, and she stood in j front of him. looking and longing and ! wondering why he hesitated. Once she was almost tempted to take him back into the parlor auu tell him that it was ail right; that she knew how he felt about it, and that she 1 would just take it for granted without the usual formality. But her maiden modesty rose in rebellion, and she said to herself; "No! If he is too timid, too coward ly to say the words it will perhaps be better for us both if we take diverging ways.” Then, speaking aloud, she said: “Well, good night, Mr. Hanscomb, ■ if you must be going.” “Well, good night,” he said, “I guess i I must be going.” , . j "Well, good night," she said again, holding the door open for him. “Well, good night,” he said, passing | out through the vestibule. She shut the door with a bang and sat down upon the stairway and buried her face in her hands, and sobbed. But half a minute later she heard him returning; her heart gave a glad leap and she rushed to the door to ad mit him. He stood looking down into her sweet, expectant face for a moment after the door had swung back, and then clear ing his throat, he said: i "Some pesky kid punctured my tire ! while 1 was inside. I wonder if I could i borrow your mending outfit for about 1 two minutes?” “No.” she replied, “my repairing out I fit is up in the attic and I can t find it to-night. Walk home.

Keal Stonuft, Not Iiuita'loiis, Can lie Pro- | •lucecl From ( uni ami Iron. Consul General Germain, ‘rZ Zurich, | says in the United States consular re ports: Diamonds of a very small size have been produced artieialiy lureto foi ■ out no one has as yet succeeded i in producing large ones. E. Moyat claims to have discovered a new pro <. ss by which to produce diamonds of large dimensions. In principle, bis | process is about the same as the or.e already invented by others, and that is to obtain crystallized carbon out of iron and coal, by means of high pr-ssurs and high temperature. Yet there is some improvement in the Moyat pro cess as regards the technical operation. Pulverized coal, iron chips and liquid corbonic acid are placed in a steel tube and hermetically sealed. The contents are then subjected to the action of an electric arc light by means of two electrodes introduced into the tube. The iron liquefies, is then saturated by part of the pulverized coal, at the same time the liquid car bolic acid evaporates, thereby creating an enormous pressure on the mixture of iron and coal. This pressure again considerably increases the dissolution of the coal in the liquid iron. While the mixture is cooling, the carbon crys tallizes partly in the form of real dia monds and partly in the form of similar stones. The crystals are then segre gated by dissolving the iron in diluted muriatic acid. The mixture, hv the above method, remains under high pressure during the operation of the electric current, while by other meth ods the pressure Is obtained later oji only by means of the rapid cooling pro cess of the crucible. HE HEARD EVERY WORD OF IT. Little Story That Teaches Talkers to be Careful When They Speak of Others. Tile recently engaged girl was so blue ni d disconsolate that all the other ciub members fell to questioning her excitedly. "lTl tel! you girls about it if you'll prom ise never to breaths a word of it to any one else." she said, miserably, ar.d sh'< hardly waited for tlie required vow before beginning her story. "Tt;*' Gibson family was over at our house yesterday afternoon,” she explain ed. “And when they went away we walk ed up to th« car with them, Charlie and I. I'd asked Charlie to take the girls home, you know: I wanted thin^to see how nice he was. So he walked with the youngest girl, and I was right behind them with th> other. When we got near to the car tracks we heard the car coming, and that i silly youngest gi^,i ran for it, and of course CTPurlie ran with her. So. seeing that it was gone, I thought I'd talk a little for th< other girl's b. nefit. She'd been guying and teasing me all afternoon, you know. So I told her that I really didn't iove Charlie. Tluit he begged me to marry him until I couldn’t stand it any longer, and I only liked him for his flowers amt th-atro tickets, and so on. You all know that sort of thing." "Yes. yes; go on.” exhorted her listen ers as she stopped to bury her face I ;' her hands dejectedly. "We know all about it. But v. hat did it matter, so long as lie wasn't there?" The recently engaged girl groan’d. "But h' w is there," she explained, miser ably. “You see. they missed the "car, afar all. and were waiting for us on th’ cor ner. And he was right behind me an I h* ml . very word I said. So he never said good-by when they did go finally, and he hasn’t been rear me all day. Oh, girls. I don't know what to do about it. I'm so heart-broken, for he thinks h\ i nu ant t very word." "Get suddenly and dangerously ill and have your mother send fo" him to hid you a last good-by." suggested the prac tical member of the club, calmly, “and tell him you were speaking of your cousin Charlie.

Two gangs of workmen have just begun dlggii g in Colorado the longest tunnel which man ever attempted to construct. The main bore will be twenty miles long, and connecting with this are subsiding tunnels with a total length of thirty miles. So In reality the task that has been put und. r w iv is that of digging fifty miles of tunnels, and . very foot of this vast sys tem will b, under Pike's Peak and the mountains that tower on each side. The starting point of the main tunnel Is at the foot of the fountain leading up to Tike's Teak, near the old town of Colo rado City. This point Is but a short dis tance from the railroads which span the country between Colorado Springs ar.d Manitou. From here it runs almost due southwest. The further end of the tun nel Is at the edge of the mountains at Four Mile Creek, over in Fremont countj, | Colo., six miles south of Cripple C reek and near the little town of Sunol. Two gangs of men, as stated, are working on the tunnel, one at each end. Just at present they are making progress at the rate of thirty feet a day. It is believed that the mammoth task they have under j taken will be completed in seven years from the first of the present month. The main tunnel will pass directly under the cone of Pike’s Peak at a depth of nearly 7,000 feet ar.d 2,700 feet beneath the [ town of Victor. Its average depth from the surface will be 2,SCO feet, ar.d it is de signed to test the mineral deposits of tho territory at those great depths. Thirty miles of laterals are contemplated, and these will pass underneath all the Cripple Creek district at an average depth of 2.S00 feet. Cripple Creek, Victor, Gillette, the various small towns and a thousand mines are to be made tributary to this vast sys tem. Under present circumstances the distance —the shortest way—from Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek is fifty-four miles. By way of the tunnel the two cities will be only sixteen miles apart. It is estimated by the contractors that the average cost per foot of excavation will be S^O. This makes the total probable expense of dig ging the tunnel and its subsidiary branches $20,520,000. All of this sum the tunnel people expect to crush out of the ore their workmen will break while excavating or glean from the nuggets which may fall out of secret pockets so far below tho earth’s surface.—San Francisco Examiner. -o BEET SUGAR PROSPECTS. Washington, May 19— Again the beet sugar industry in Europe is facing a crisis in spite of various ingenious and complex legislative remedies that have been applied. From several of the United States consular officers— Mason, at Frankfort. Muth, at Magde burg, and Morris, at Ghent,—reports have come to the State Department descriptive of the evil conditions that exist in the sugar industry. Consul Muth says the last sugar law of May 15th. 1S9G, has been disappointing in its effects. Prices have declined eve-’t in the face of a largely incre?-^;’. de mand from the United Ste-'n. Consul Mason says the lav.' '.as actually in creased the b>-'. acreage, which was already a- extreme point of safe ex paConsul Morris transmits a copy of a most urgent and desperate plea for help of the Belgian sugar mak ers. and each anil all says the prospect is full of gloom.

A notice in the Review of Rooks and Art of April 24 of the first Bradford Almanac for the year lt>M> recalls a shrewd piece of book bargaining. The fact that the spider and the fly were both Yankees adds zest to the story. Wallace, in his Commemorative Address, (page 2*>) stated that apparently only oqe copy of this almanac had. survived, al though subsequently another turned up in tin library of the late Dr. David King, of Newport. R. I., and brought *'>20 af auc tion in May, 1SR3. Mr. Stone being the pur chaser. At the time of our story, however, only one copy was supposed to be in ex istence, and that was in the library of Judge Sewell, of Mascsachusfctts. He had a lot of old almanacs, sixteen in number, which he had had bound Into one- small volume, and while from all accounts he had some idea that they were valuable, yet the extraordinary rarity of the Brad ford one appears to have been unknown to him. although quite a number of experts were well aware of its value. Some libra rians confidently expected that the Judge would will it to an institution. ! Among the experts who learned of Judge i Swell's possession of the hook was the j late George Brinley, of Hartford, Conn., a man who had earned the reputation of get ting whatever he went after. During a call on the Judge the conversation eventually drifted into hooks. Naturally th Judge showed Mr. Brinley his treasures, ami casually expressed his regret at being un able to obtain a comphtc set of The Gen tleman's Magazine, which even at that ; time commanded fancy prices. Mr. Brinley i saw-his opportunity, and in the most mat ter of fact way declared that he was grad ually being convince d that bulky, bound sets of books were a nuisance in a private library, where room was limited; that he was slowly getting rid of his sets, and finally declared that he would rather have that little volume of almanacs than the entire set of The Genteman's Magazine. ; The Judge wras amazed and thought Mr. ! Brinley was joking, but to make certain j he asked him if he was in earnest, and, on Mr. Brinley's affirming that he was, he j agreed to make the exchange if Mr. Brin ley would Ik- entirely sati.-ihd. A formal | agreement was executed, and the exchange | made. Mr. Brinley had not returned home long before storlc-s began to get around • that he was losing his mind, and among I those- who hear of it was an eminent hlsto ' rian of Massachusetts. The story was ' found to have originated with Judge Sew 1 ell's family, who were so elated at having ! ?toured’ a full set of The Gentleman's Magazine that they concluded Mr. Brln ley was a little bit "oft" to make such an exchange. When the Massachusetts historian dis covered that the highly prized almanac was no longer In Massachusetts his cha grin and disappointment were intense. Mr. Brinley’ft sanity was no longer a topic of discussion. Here is Mr. Brinley’s balance sheet relating to his transaction: The set of The Gentleman's Magazine, hound in j half calf, laid eo.-t him something over Ife split up his volume of almanacs, twelve of which ho had bound separately nt a cost of $.1 per volume. After bis death these twelve volume brought or $S0 tacit. Four remained, of which three together sold for J130. while the re maining one, the Bradford, brought $**>. Not the least vaulable asset In this trans action. however, to the book lover was the satisfaction of posstssing this great treasure. THEY HAD REASONS. Major Singleton was crossing the public square from the postofiire to the court house, when he encountered Colonel Tifton, who was crossing from the court house to the postofflee. It was a hot day, and both wanted a drink. "Powerful hot, Colonel,” said the Major. "Yes, salt—powerful hot,” was the reply. "Makes the throat mighty dry.” "Yes. sail—mighty dry.” "Can’t say when I've wanted a drink so bad since the wall.” "Same with me, Majah. Don’t reckon I've had so much cotton in my mouth in twenty y'ars.

The painful silence lasted fo1- a Jong min ute, and then was broken by the j Major, who said: ‘ Colonel Titton. I hav<- reasons, sah, for not invitin’ yo’ to nip with me this evening.
