Atlanta Const Ito tloi. ARY," said Mr. Itenson, from the depths of the closet, "where is that o'.d checked coat of mine?" "Why, John," begun Mrs. Benson, timidly. "Mary, have you given that away?" asked Mr. Benson, coming into view. "Why yes, John, 1 did. You haven't rind that coat on your back for three years and and the man had such lovely here poor Mrs. Benson relapsed Into the safe refuge of tears. "I'eddlers," exclaimed Mr. Itenson, contemptuously. "Why can't a woman be satisfied with buying what she wants at a decent store and not be pick lng np a lot of worthless articles from sneak-thieves because they are 'cheap!' You'll be sorry for it some day, Mary, you mark my words.? Mr. llenson went out and shut the door vigorously. - He walked down the atreet -witha nr.nMt, ti i a 1 fv,n niwm rti. flM. I must cure Mary of that," he thought, I seriously. "Sometime she will have something valuable stolen. I've got i it!" he exclaimed, after a pause.. He fitted his key to the door of his private office, opened the door and then turned back. "Jenning," he said, ."I shall be very busy for an hour or two, possibly all the afternoon. Sec that I am not dis turbed by anyone." ' He entered his office, and locked the door after him. It was a very easy mat ter to open a back window,drop into the alley and hasten to an obscure cos turner's, where detectives and jail-birds ' were impartially disguised to play at hide and seek with one another. Ieft alone, Mrs Benson cried a little while repentantly to herself, and then remembered that she had intended to wash the. delicate bric-a-brac that was her pride and joy. To do this she. muNt pet her dainty white apron and her dear little new pan that she had bought of the last peddler here she sighed a lit tle. She slipped off her rings, moved out a little table and left the room for the necessary articles. i Little matters detained her and it was fully ao hour before she again en. tered the room, bearing the pan. Just as she set it down a peal at the bell startled her. ' "I wonder who it can be and Jenny is ironing," she thought. , She opened the door herself, and then almost shut it again in her momentary dismay. Certainly It was a disreputable look. lng objecV even for a peddler, that stood on the doorstep. "I've come, mum, to aee 'f ye didn'1 want to exchange some old clo'es fer somethin' rale vallyble." He edged his way past her and established himself on a hall chair. "What have you, my man?' Mrs, Benson asked, hesitatingly. "I've some of the harnsomest lace ye ever saw.", He produced a piece aa a sample. It was just what she had been want ing to complete the dainty spring; cos tume she had just finished. "Mr. . Benson doesn't like to have me buy of peddlers," aht 6id, hesitat infffy. "I'm sure 'ced say 'twas all. right. miun, ef 'ee was here. Just look around an see ef tlmr ain't an old coat you can . - . j . . i - snare. .. .

Strange to say, her rail was immediately an swered, for around the corner of the square appeared a blue-coated guardian, draggiug the unwilling person of the identical peddler. He's stolen my rings, screamed Mrs. Benson.' ''Pont let him come near me, sir: 'I thought he'd -stole something when I see him come away on the dead jump,' aaid the polieetaaaa. "aaV I -thought I'd just ran him in and see about it," Dur ing this speech he hsd been rapidly emptying the peddler's pockets, despite his vehement struggles. 'Here they be, ma'am. They'll give them to you at the police station w hen ve sworn to them. ' Come along here, my beauty!" "Mary!" screamed the peddler, when he could free himself enough to speak, but Mrs. Benson had sunk in a heap on the hall floor with the closed door be tween them, and the peddler was dragged off with a motely procession following. To the statement that he was John Benson, a well-known and respectable lawyer, only laughter and the i"eply: That won't work here," was retvrned to him and he accordingly found him self in a very narrow cell with every prospect of a night to be spent in it. Mrs. Benson waited for per husband s return that night with inward dismay, bnt a brave determination to tell him the wh le story. Supper time came and passed with. out hlin. She ate her lonely meal and waited. Nine o'clock came, ten, and still be did not come. Visions of possible murders, acci dents, or elopements hunntcd her, and she started with a little scream as the door bell suddenly rang. Old Jennlng's face appeared in the frame. 'Is he dead? she cried; "where Is he?" - "He gave orders that he was not to be disturbed, so I waited all the after noon and when clobing-up time camo he hadn't come out yet. Then I went out and got my supper and when I came back he hadn't come out still; so I got uneasy and when he didn't answer, I got help and we broke in the door and he was gone." Mrs. Benson gasped. "Be calm, ma'am, for I fear 1'to worse to tell. , Shortly after he had given his orders not to be disturbed, there was a man came from the pollen station asking for Mr. Benson, but I told him Mr. llenson was engaged. Ho said there was a man just arrested, dressed as a peddler, who claimed to be Mr. Benson, but" He stopped with astonishment, for HE ESTABL1H11KD 1I1MHKI.F IS A CHAIR.

Mr. Benson vras sitting disconsolate ly on the edge of a very hard bunk, wondering what poor Mary was think ing of his absence, when there was a murmur of voices, a sound of feet, a jingle of keys, and in another moment peddler and victim were in each other's arms. "I'll never buy another thing of a peddler again as long as I live, John, if you'll only forgive me!" cried Mrs. Ben son, tearfully. ' And it Is safe to say she never did. Kate A.

Any man who can read would prob ably resent such an imputation of ig. norance as this question conveys. "Do you know your letters?" is what is asked the little tot when he or she first sets foot in school. But grown up men and womeu may be pardoned for be. lieving they are ' speaking the truth when they answer ."yes" to the qucs. tion. The chances are, however, that they don't know their letters. Why has "A" Its present shape? Stumped the first time. Every A-merican 'ought to known that. A takes its shape from a picture of an eagle. . B was once the picture of an Egyptian bird. D repre. sented a man's hand. F was the horned viper. The upper strokes are the re mains of the horns and the perpendicu lar line the upright body of the wiper, H waa once the semblance of a sieve.

He said that he had use lor ail the sleep he could get, and he frequent ly pretended that he did not hear the niirht bell. But the young man outside on this particular occasion was determined. It was apparent that he stood in great need of something. Ho rang the bell two or three times in quick succession and waited. The clerk heard the bell, but merely turned over on his pillow and waited. The young man gave several more vicious pulls at the bell hundle, nnd the elork yawned and wondered how long he would keep it tip. Then the vonng man tok out his watvh, held it where the light from street-lainn fell on it, and went to work systematically. For four or five min utes the bell over the clerk's head struck once every thirty seconds. The clerk's hair began to stand on end as he hastily rolled off his cot. 1 he regit. lnrlty with which the bell rang made tt seem almost supernatural. It took him three minutes to get some clothes on nnd get to the door, nnd during that time the bell rang exactly six times. It was actually a relief to find some one at the door when he opened it; it showed that the bell had been rung by hnman airency. ' The young man sauntered in, nodded with half-drunken gravity and conde scension to the clerk, and said; "Aw. give me some cigarettes." The clerk well, what would you have done under the circumstances? Exactly. That's just what the clerk did, nnd the young man limped sorrow. fully home. M. Y. Telegram. NOT A KIDNAPER.

I Believe that's a case of kidnaping!" he said. "It does look suspicious," said the sharp little fellow next to him. "Nonsense," said the elderly man on the right of the other two. "Hut see how hard he tries to look un concerned," protested the first. And see how furtively and anxiously he looks back to see if he is followed, added the second. . "Of course he's not hurrying," put in the first, "because that would attract attention." "But he's ready to run if he sees any one following him," suggested the sharp little fellow. "We'd better make hnn eive an account of himself." "Now, hold on," interrupted the eld. erly man. "Did either of you ever have your wife tell you to start ahead with the baby, and she a overtake yon7 "Why, no; we're not married." "Exactly. Then you never knew what it was to be haunted by the fear that she had finally decided to let you give the baby a little fresh air while she staid at home and read a novel. Boys, let the man alone.

Manganir. which is an alloy of cop per, nickel and manganese, has remark- ble electrical properties. Its resistance hardly rariea at all even through range of temperature varying from 1J ' to 17 degrees centigrade. It thus be-! comes a superior metal for the construc tion of artificial resistances. The most powerful electric light- iouse in Europe is said to be the new one erected at Hantsholm, on the Scaw. The total height at the lighthouse ia liW feet, and the strength of the light equal to 3,000,000 standard wax can dles. Even in rainy weather the light may be seen 30 driles distant An elaborate and extensive tele- phono arrangement haa just been com-; pleted in Woodside Established church, Jlatigow, Scot, whereby the subscribers to the system are enabled to hear the entire service of the chnrch at their lomes, and with the utmost distinctness and ease. A large number of English chnrche are said to have a similar ar rangement, but of less extent. Complaints have been made by sev eral of the large banks in New York and other place of the lnrge number of ight-weight twenty-dollar gold piece which have lately len shipped from California. H Is believed that the coins have been subjected to a "sweating process" by electricity, by which as much as seventy-five cents or a dollar la extracted without material defacement of the coin. 1 A statistician has computed that there are at present in the world, under state management, 1,1T miles of sub marine cables, with 19,4'JS miles of wire, and in the possession of private com panies 112,937 miles of cable, with 113, 885 mile of wire, being a total, there fore, of Wfl,U8 miles of cable, with 13S,- 311 miles of wire. Those cables are all n operation, besides which there are several long and short lines in course of construction. M. Oustave Trouve, the inventor of flying machines, has been making a large number of experiments with a new electric boat It haa two side pad dles made into the form of wheels with hollow rims to act as floats, and also provided with vanes like a mill wheel. At the stern there is a tnlra, Dul small er, wheel-of the same sort as a steerer. The tricycle principle has been adopted. These combined wheels nnd floats are driven by electric motors, and the elec tricity is derived from a battery of line and copper plates, floating in the water and towed astern. With this arrange ment there Is no need for charged ac cumulators on hoard, Electric welding is now applied to the work of manufacturing iron wheels. The process of welding the hub, spokes and tire of a wheel is accomplished in thirty seconds. First the tire is laid on the machme, then half of the hub, which contains notches in which the spokes fit. The latter are luid in the hub and Inserted in the tire, and then the other halt of the hub is laid on top of the lower half. These are held to gether by hydraulic pressure. The electricity is turned on, the iron be comes heated to the proper degree and welds. The pressure is removed, the now compact wheel taken from its rest. ing-place, rolled aside and allowed to cool. The work is done In very mucn leas time than it took by the old process, A BIG STONE. A Mighty Bowlder and til. Superstition Concerning; It. On a heather-clad mountain side, which slopes downward to the lied of the Kenmare river, in the beautiful county of Kerry, lies a fragment of rock weighing more than a hundred tons. Being quite unlike the rocks in the environing hills, it excites more or less curiosity among persons who are inclined to scientific study. The superstitious peasantry regard it with wonder not unmixed w,tn awe, and relate legends of the giants of old who played ball with such hpgo frag. ments, and of one in especial, who, in a moment of snort, tossed this particular piece a matter of a few miles, leaving it where it fell when flung from his hand. But he must, indeed, have been a powerful iriant to handle the Gogh vorra stone, as it ia called, when it would tax all of the powers of our very best available machinery to move it even a sinirle inch. But it is to no fab ulous or supernatural agency that this stone owes Its transportation to its pres ent bed from th point, miles above, which was its original home, Thousands of years ago, when the British Isles were in the iron grasp of an ice age, this bowlder was carried on the bosom of a glacier and cast upon a mountain side, there to remain as one of the finger posts .aet up by nature to guide the student in the labyrinths through which she loves to lead him. And the study of the earth, its mount ains and meadows, its plains and val leys, and the fathomless depths of ocean all tell a wondrous and most enchanting story of changes, evolution, growth disintegration and restoration. In its silent embrace are clasped the fossil re mains of beasts beside which those of our own days are as pigmies to giants. The naturalist takes a single bone, and give us a sketch of the creature almost as perfect as though photographed by the most approved camera ol to-aay. It is a matter for congratulation that the study of geology has been stripped of the dry hnsks of technical terms which have for so long enveloped.it, and is now given to us in simple lan (.mage and in a style so fascinating that even a child need not weary of it.

Before tho liquid. had been on the desk two minutes, it seemed to the reporters, an extraordinary : big roach came running across tho top of the desk. He was evidently drawn thither by the odor of good cheer which was going to waste, for he directly ran to the bottom of the bottle and began drinking the malt liquor. .
