"Ttve, but then you ee 1 only ro arad a day ago." , A he spoke the band played the Inarch, for aupper, and, offering his arm. Liaat Winthrop led his partner from the ballroom. Lieut 'Will Winthrop was one of the most popular offloera of the th. Al though bnl tWKnty-eight, he had been In many campaigns, and was now on leare. spending his time at that moat dellcMful place. Point Comfort Mia Delay Garland was one of the kellea of the place. She waa not tall, tately "society" woman, but an ira pulslre southern girl She was the only child of a millionaire orange plan tation bolder. Having been educated ia Vlrgtnia, she had been In society but a short time, yet was already one of the most sought after and favored girl in the place. Two day after the bail Vtnthron might have been seen, fclowly strolling ! Mp toward the pretty tottage Mr. Gar laad had hired foe tne time he and hia daughter were, to spend at l'oint Com fort If ajfnne had told Will he waa going see hia pretty partner of the bail h wonld hare politely told him he we crazy. Oh, no! hi praiseworthy intention wa to have a cozy talk with Mr. Garland about the least romantic subject, financial news. Although very few knew It, Lieut W. Winthrop hail a snug little fortune invested In the far north. Ever since his cadet days he hud laid aside part of the generous allowance his father sent him, ''Of course," Winthrop soliloquized he went tlong, "everyone thinks just because there is a pretty girl here I come to see her, but I will show them At 4 .1 I tub contrary. A he arrived at this conclusion lie marched up the stops and gave a de termined pull at the great lion' head that served as a knocker. A trim maid aorvant opened the door and told him the master was out, but she had order to ask the lieutenant in when he called, a Mr. Garland had left a mesHge. Even aa she spoke the parlor door waa pushed open and Miss. Daisy ap peared. "Ahl Mr. I mean," with a pretty bhish and smile, "Lieut Winthrop, so yon have come at last," and she put out her dainty band, which was cor dially clasped In his for a moment "Papa waited until a few minutes ago for you and Instructed me to keep you if you came until his return. You can see him at the club if you care to go there, but I am quite alone and will be Very pleased not to have to wait alone," she continued, pleasantly. "Well, Mis Garland, If I won't in terrupt you reading, for I see you have been quite studious by the book you carry, I will wait for Mr. Garland here." As Will followed hi hostess in he could hardly conceal hi surprise at the beauty of the drawing-room. The walla ,'were hung in the palest rose color. Great lounging chairs and tiny gilt ones stood around In an in viting way. The table wa covered with magazines, and a handsome book case was well filled with the choicest literature. Everywhere wa the evi dence of refined taste. Each stand was loaded down with flower. Great hardy jacks crowded out the dainty tea roses, while violets nestled lovingly In their bed of leaves. Near the window stood Daisy's favorite chair, and the second volume of the book the (till held in her hand, thrown carelessly on the floor, showod she had loft her nook hastily. A Will took In these details his eye rested upon Daisy. To him she was the aweetest picture in the room. Her dark, curly hair was pushed carelessly back from her white forehead, and her handa were clasped behind her head as she leaned back In a big chair talking lazily to Winthrop. One tiny boot was thrust forward and tapped the floor gently a she spoke. A few pale roses were fastened to the white folds of her collar, and one nestled Id the dark masses of her hair. Mr. Garland did not cone in nntil five o'clock, o although Will had come intending to stay only an hour, It was well past six when he walked back to hi hotel In his mind he saw the pretty face he had just left The next day Mr. Garland left for a short stay at hi home in Virginia. Will had a cordial invitation to step in any time and see his daughter. After hia last visit Winthrop thonght he had done hia dnty and stayed away three whole day. On the fourth he recon sidered Mr. Garland's invitation, and on the fifth yielded. Then began again the old story of Eve tempting Adam. After his fall Winshrop was a constant visitor at the Garland's pretty home. Soon it became known to every one that the handsome lieutenant wa a suitor for the hand of the onthern beauty. Every day promptly at two Winthrop would ap pear on hi well-groomed horse, leading a pretty, bay by the bridle. In a few minute Daisy would step out in her stylish habit, and off they would ride. About two months after Lieut Winthrop was sitting in a large arm chair before the Are and evidently in deep thought. . Suddenly he addressed the fire thus: "Bee here, old man, you're in. love. No use denying it Here you sit grumbling and wondering what to do, and there i only one conrsfl for you to take, tile her heart, she has always teemed glad to see me whenever t came. Ycsl by George, I will try my fateto-nScnt" After making thia resolution Will put on his hat and wentout Strolling ' into, the clab he found a square white envelope addressed la the hand he knew so well "I shall be very glad to hava you spend the evening with us, as papa is coming home" so ran Miss Garland's note "and he is to bring a particular friend. Mr. Lane, to spend a few day with aa," Will's face flushed with pleasure as he strode away whistling. Promptly at seven he wa dressed and waiting. Having some time to epare he threw himvlf upon a lounge and lay musing ia the darkness. Now that he waa ready to test hia faith he was not quite so confident "Suppose (he refuses me? But great Scott! she is no coquette, and, then, hasn't she shown she likes me? Per haps,' but he put the thought aside as preposterous. No, of count Lane couldn't be on the same errand a him self. At last) The hr.il clock sweetly and Clearly rang out eight strokes. It was time to go. How well he recalled th pretty picture Daisy made the first time he saw her in her own home. Hastily, joyously he mounts the atepa of her house and smiles to hear the resound ing noise his energetic knock ha made. Th door ia opened aa before by the trim servant but this time aha shows him Into the parlor at once. Winthrop never forgot the picture as the drawing-room door opened. Daisy was lounging in an easy chair before the fire. Near her on a footstool was one of her most constant visitors, Arthur Scott. Lane was leaning on the heavily carved mantel, talking easily with both. The firelight glittered on Daisy's hair, bringing out the golden tints and making her simple 'white gown rosy red. This evening she waa attired in a soft white silk, and bearta-ease wa her only ornament a bunch at her waist and throat As she rises to greet Will he notice that her eyes are very bright and (he appears very nervous. After speaking a moment with hia hostess Will turns to Lane and both his outstretched handa are caught in a warm clasp by him. A couple of hours passed pleasantly. and then Scott rose to go. A soon as Daisy left the room Herbert Lane turned quickly to Winthrop and ex claimed: "Old fellow, you will help me, won't you? So glnd I explained everything in my letter save bother now, and DalRy Is so pleased." Winthrop stared stupidly at Herbert and gasped: " hat, for heaven a sake, arc you driving at? What letter do you mean?" It whs now Lane's turn to look amazed. "You don't mean to tell me you never got my letter? Why, Daisy was always writing how kind you were to her, and I thought it was on that ac count" "Speak quickly, Herb!" exclaimed Will. "Before she comes back. How dure you call her Daisy? What right have you, I sny? "Why, man, the best in the world, for for she is my wlfo." "Your wife? Your your wife? You're fooling. Herbert, say you are, for I lpve her." For a moment he spoke as if dazed, then sank on a chair and covered his face with his hands. Just then Daisy appeared in the doorway. She looked in amazement from one to the other. then as Will raised his head and she saw the direst misery in hia eyes she came swiftly forward. He sees the face of the girl he Iovts, all her pretty color gone and ail her happiness gone, "ill tries to speak, but Lane comes gently to her and save: "Go, Daisy dear, leave him to me. Then as Will's face again falls on his bands, she bends Boftly and giving Winthrop one quick kiss hurries away. When Daisy had gone, Lane told everything. IIow be bad loved Daisy for years, but could not get her father's consent, until, taking matters into their own hands, they had married se cretly. When Lane found that Mr. Garland Intended to bring his daughter to Point Comfort he told Daisy to make friends with Winthrop and be would write loiter to Will explaining alL And that was the letter Winthrop never re' ceived. But now he (Herbert) had a good po sition and had come to confesa to her father, and had wanted Will to say good word for liim. Daisy was only too glad to have a friend who knew her secret and so showed a marked preference for Will's society to that of any of the other men that flocked about her. When Lane had finished, Will stood up and grasping Herbert's handa said nobly: "Herb, dear fellow, I will do my best Leave me alone and I will see her father, and congratulate your your wife for me As Lane left him Will sat down and gazed around wearily. What brigh dreams bad come and gone in this little parlor, but now all waa over. He touched the bell and asked to see Mr. Garland Uow be pleaded his friend's cause, or what he said, f never knew; however, he must have done hi best for Mr. Garland forgaro and for got. The next morning Mrs. Lane sent a note of invitation to Winthrop spend the day at their house. He never camo or got the note, for he had left for the north the night before. When he reached New York he wrote to Daisy, bis first and last letter, and that was a note of congratulation To Lane he wrote more briefly, aa follows "Dear Hkhbkrt: Do nol think 1 envy you your napplnoM, for or ll men on earth yon moat deserve It: but I could not stay and see her day by day.

Throughout the year, but particular ly at thia season, when the city is de- I pendent upon th tropics for its fruit supply, almost every steamer entering this port brings number of many footed atowawaya The (teamen which bring the most of these stowawaya are those that com from the West Indies and Central America, loaded with ban anas, and a nauralist will alwaya be rewarded by a visit to any of the piers where these vessels unload. As bunch after bunch of banana is handed out from the hold to be packed away in large open vans, a lizard often drops out and can be easily captured. These are of every color, many of them very beautiful, and all perfectly harmless. Sometimes a small tropical moth flut ters out and a careful observer will find many aorta of ants, from great black fellow that have a savage bite to the tiniest of the species. very unwelcome visitors are centi pede and scorpions, that frequently find a shelter in the large green bunches, and many of the men who handle th fruit have been stung by those noxious insecta The sting of the scorpion aeema instantly to paralyze the limb struck, and causes most acute pain and much swelling. The centipede, whose every leg is armed with a sting that leaves its poison behind a it hurries over the human skin, leaves a trail of pain be hind it which is quite as acute aa that caused by the scorpion, 1 he best rem edy tor these stings is strong spirits of ammonia, which should be at once robbed Into the skin vigorously. Now and then a small snake makes his ap pearance from among the fruit and always causes a panic among the peo ple near by. These are alway of the tree variety, and are generally harm' less, but thoy receive no favor and are soon battered Into a Jelly. Spider arc among the most common of these trop ical immigrants, and among these the hairy-legged tarantula is, very right ly, the most dreaded. One that was cap tured recently covered nearly as much ground as a man's hand. The ugly customer lived for several weeks in confinement It wa fed on raw meat but was particularly fond of cock roaches. The other spiders that come on the fruit ships are harmless, and al most all of them are beautifully marked and are prized by naturalists. Various species of beetle can be oft' en found on these ships, from the giant elephant to some not much larger than a pin s head. Among thia class of In sect the naturalist will occasionally find a rare species that will repay him for many hours spent on the windy piers. Not uncommon visitors are the tree-frogs, little green and brown fel lows that could give Mark Twain jumping frog points and then beat him out of sight So nimble aro these lit tle batrachlans that it is hard work to catch them. If caught they should be let loose in a greenhouse, where they do wonderfully well, and do much good In killing parasites. For its (ire, tho tree-frog can croak louder than any other member of the loud voiced fain- Timber-laden vessels from the tropics are always worth a visit Scorpions and centipedes are common upon them, and generally the visitor Is rewarded by finding many beetles, and sometimes the chrysalis of some tropical butterfly or moth may be met with, which, if kept in a warm place, will hatch and give the collector a perfect specimen of an insect he littlo dreamed of ever pos sessing. Among the wood, too, may often be found the nests of the mason- wasp. If these are broken open and the grub is not full grown, one is sure to find soveral kinds of small spiders that the mother wasp had stung into insensibility and placed in the cell for food for her progeny.

The city editor of a newspaper which employs the services of an enterprising yoang ma a a friend of mine to a small amount asked him one day to in vestigate a strange story which had come down over the telephone from the Fourteenth ward hospital. He gave the young ma a an order on the caahier for his car fare. Having exchanged that for tea cents worth of malt ex tract with a gentleman on William street, my friend walked op to the Fourteenth ward. He rassed his credentials in to the chief surgeon at tha hospital and was admitted. What ia this case yon told ua about?" he asked, borrowing the chief surgeon's knife to sharpen his pencil You haven't made a successful opera tion, have you?'

"Yea" "So we tent out After awhile w found an Irishman who had been mor tally wounded in a prize-fight and w ho had no further use for his brains. We operated on him, and made the trans fer.

He doesn't recognize his wife, and claims that he, alone and unassisted, can lay out any seven men in the hospital If he Is not molested by the police. He also speaks with a strong Irish accent, and has gone back on his politics. He claims his name is Dolan." The chief snrgeon reached behind him for his handkerchief and wiped the perspiration off his face with the air of a man whose confidence has been abused. "How do you account for the change? the reporter asked, recross- iug his legs on the window-sill. "We don't account for it at all," th chief surgeon answered.

That man is a real gentleman if he does look a little seedy," said a street car conductor to me as he pointed out a man in the car on an uptown trip one day last week.

I'll bet on that test." "But how about the women? Doe your test apply to them, too?"

Good News, IN THE ELECTRICAL WORLD. Aa advocate of eicctnoal '. eg lim that of every ltftl ton if coal sued in a cooking stove kc goes to wast. I Aa amateur electrician ia Mon treal, named Engeoc Kaldwia, ha rigged ap a wind-wheel which, ia con- eectioa with a dynamo and storage batteries, supplies all the lights he needs in tha hoa&e, j Aa Austria ha invented a tying machine that move through tho air after th manner of bee.

A Boston electrician ha just com pleted a novel device for electrically extracting from wood or rag pulp, ustwl in th manufacture of paper, by a series of moving electric magnets, all tracei of irou contained in the pulp. By means of a sprocket chain the magnets are drawn through the pulp, then ele vated to a higher level, where they de posit their picking of iron dust la a re ceiving tray, the circuit being broken when the magnets are in the proper position. A jet of water also assists in washing the magnets clean, ready fo the next immersion in the pulp The dovlce is extremely Ingenious and per fectly simply and practicable, and bai proved a wonderful success. Two men were arraigned in a New York court recently for stealing elec tric power, the ease being the first of its kind in tbatelty. Edward Girdnerand his brother-in-law have charge of tht exhibit of the Roulette Cycle Co.. of Cov entry, Eng., at Madison Square Garden Frank Martin, the electrician of the garden, observed that the wheels of bicycle hanging above Gardner s booth were being turned at a rapid rat by some unseen power. On investigation ha found that the electric light wire had been tapped, and were connected with a small electric motor, which kept the wheels in motion It is said that in a somewhat similar case the supreme court In Buffalo austained a charge ol larceny about a year ago. The introduction of electric power in the improvement of drilling, and quarrying machinery within the past few years is evidently destined to work revolution in the accomplishmen of tunnel engineering projects Exca vations that formerly occupied year can now be made in a few months, and a striking reduction in the estimates o( the time required for the carrying out of engineering plan ia apparent It ill stated that the proposed Simplon tun- nel is to be constructed at a cost and , rate which will place its predecessors in th shade. Motive power is now easily obtained from water In the Swiss mountainous districts, and th facility with which electric power can be trans mitted renders the site of a generating station a secondary consideration. This new tunnel through the heart of the Alp is to be completed in h years. . TO CURE TOOTHACHE, rraerlptloa for Fmerf racy TrMtment That Is Cenv.Bt.at to Know. Toothache is a little thing In the books, but many physicians would rather meet a burglar at the door on a dark night than a call to cure a bad toothache of several days' continuance. A hypodermic of morphine only post pones the evil day, and usually the patient is respectfully referred to the dentist The tooth should not be ex tracted while the jaw and gum are in flamed and the latter swollen, snd it is the physician's dnty to treat the case until the above conditions are removed. Alway keep a (mail phial containing the following mixture: Chloroform, gtt x.; glycerine, gtt z.; (at tol. ao. carbol., gtt x.; morphine, gr. j., with a amall wad of absorbent cotton If the offending tooth has a cavity or decayed surface, saturate ft amall pellet of cot ton with the above mixture and put into tMe cavity or against the decayed surface, as the case may be never pack the cotton in, or the more I the trou ble, but- have the pellet small enough to enter without crowding. In most cases thi will end the trouble. When the gum are (woolen and ten der paint two or three times, two in in ate apart, with a four per cent solu tion of cocaine. This time of year j onr patient may have been eating a good deal of fruit The tongue and mucous membrane of the mouth are pale, he ha a sour stomach, and next day the toothach will return Give-ten grains of sub-carbonate of bismuth and ten grain of phenaretin at once, and a imilar dose before- each of the three following meals, with a laxative if needed, aud (ton all fruit for a few days, and it will not return.
