IJ.ilI wh.v to the fair he met a merchant ot his acquaintance, and stopped to spend the night with him ut uu inn near by. They sup oed together, talked till bedtime, n ml retired to sleep in adjoining chniube.is. Ivan Uluiliilevitcli was not a great sleeper, and he awoke in the middle ot the nijjht restless and wide-awake. To avoid the heat ot (he day and travel more comfortably, he decided to pursue his journey without wait ug tor morning. Housing his postillions be ordered them to harness his horses, and after settling his ac count with the innkeeper ho drove away. Uouifi about loi ly vers s be de cided to rest again, teed his hoises and eat his owu dinner ut another little nu beige by the side of the roadway. While w.iit'iig lor the sauiover to Uu Itgiiteti uiuutrie vitch seated hitnselt upon the door step and began to play upon bis guitar. Suddenly there was a furious ringing ot hells, is troika dashed up to the a u beige, ami a tcbiuovnik (officer ot the Slate) descended, followed by two soldiers. Approaching Aksenov be asked biui what he was doing there and where he was going. Akseuov answered him very itolitely, then invited hint to join hi in in a cup of tea. The official declined and con tinued to press him with quest ious "Where bad ha slept Ibe night before!" "Was he alone ! "Uad he been alone all the evening with his ttieiid the merchant V "Aud whv had he left him so precipitate ly t" Akseuov surprised at these ques tions, related alt that bad happen ed to biui. "But wbydo you wish to koowT said be; "lam ueither a brigaad nor a thief. I am traveling about my own aflaiis, and uo oue baa the ngbt to question iue." The officer beckoned to the al- diaia to approach, thru tnrniug to Aksenov said ateruly : Mll I question too it is as a com- missiooer of police, aud becatie tbe merchant with whom you passed tbe night was fouod tuonlrrad in his bed. Where is yonr luggage I suddenly, holding up something that he bad taken from uniting the clothes in the bottom of the. sachei. Aksenov looked aud saw that it was a knife all spotted and brown with bloo-.l ; be shuddered it li ter ror. "And why this blood upou itf continued tlie officer. Aksenov wished to answer, to tell them that he knew nothing about it, Unit tho knife was not even his, but he was unable to articulate a word. "The merchant was found this morning dead in his bed; you were the last one with him ; tlie inn was closed, and you were tho only guest. Confess then that you kill ed and robbed him," persisted the officer. AKsenov swore bv all that was holy that lie had not even seen the merchant after they parted for the uivJit; that he had uo money save his own, iibont 8,000 roubles told ; and that the knife did not belong to him: but his voice w strangled, his face pale, and trembled as with an iig 'e fit. "Bin! and place him in the car lage, cried the officer peremptorily. "and take him to the prison." An inquiry forwarded to Vladiui ir in regard to Aksenov's eliaractt resulted only iu the i ti form at ton that be was esteemed bv all wiio knew him. although he had been little wild ii nd fond ot drink. "Nev erthless," said the merchants and neighbors, "ho is an honest man uud it is impossible that he eoul have murdered Kiuzau and robbed him of 20,000 roubles." The wife of Aksenov was in tl greatest . distress and knew not what to think. II r children were all young, one of them still at the breast, but she took them and trav eled as fast as possible (o the cl!.v where her lmshund was confined. Thev at first refused her permission to see him, but nt last her prayers prevailed, and she was allowed to enter the prison where her husband, in r.n id's dress, was chained Willi a horde ot other robbers mill inur nereis. Sue put the children in their father's urins, then sealing herself beside him, begged him to tell her all that had befallen him. "What can be done!"' said his wife when Aksenov had finished, "save to supplicate the Czir; he will never let the innocent suffer for the guiltv. 1 have already nd- diessed a petition to him, though I have not vet been able to send it, Ah. Ivan Dimitrinvitch, it was not iu vain that I had that dream when I saw you with snow white hair. Thou art gray all ready with trou ble. Ivan, my dear, is if the truth that thou hast told met"' Aksenov answered her with a reproachful glance, then buried his face iu his bauds. A soldier appeared at this mo- men t and announced that the time was up and she must go. The bit terest drop to Aksenov in this part ing with bis wile was the knowl edge that she had doubted liiin and even asked him if he had killed the merchant. "God alone knows the truth," said he; "I must trust iu Uiin and await Uis mercy." From that time on bo ceased to think of sending sway petitions; he closed bis heart lo hope an I prayed onlv lo God.- On tbe evidence against him Aksenov was condemned, first to the knout, and afterwards to trans pollution and hard labor; and with wounds scarcely healed departed with a gang ot other convicts to Siberia. At the end et twenty six years of exile, hardship and sorrow, Diuiit- iieviuh Akseuov bad become an old man; his hair was as white as snow and his lojig white beard fell almost to his waist. All of his gaiety had disappeared ; be raiely spoke and never laughed, spending bis time when tiot at work iu pray ers to Heaven. Iu prison Aksenov learned to be a shoemaker, and with the money which be earned from au occasional sale bought himself a Book of Martyrs, which he read whenever there was light enough in tbe dun geon for bimtosee; aud on holi days and tele days he attended tbe piisou chapel and sang iu the choir. Tbe keepers loved him lor his do cility, and hia comrades held him in high esteem, calling him ''Grand father" and "a man ot God." No oue wrote to him from his old home ami he did fit know whether his wife and children were living or dead. Thus tbe time passed on. One morning there was a stir of excitement in the prison ; a batch ot new criminals had list been brought in, and aitli them intelli gence (torn the euier world. The cout icia gatheied about the new arrivals plying them with a thou sand and one questions ; "From what city r village bad they come r "For what crime bad they beco eeulcnced Tele, etc. Akseu- to go faster, but all the same I am here. Truly, I am a great criminal, and should have been here belb-e, only, you see, tbe police didn't know it." "And you are from where V "Vladimir; i am a shopkeeper of that city. My name is Maker and that of my lather Semioiiovitch." Akseuov lilted his head. "Did you ever hear them speak ot the merchants Aksenov t" said be. "Areany of them liviugf' "Of course," said Maker; "they nre t ilth merchants now, although their father wasseut to Siberia." Aksenov did not like to speak of bis misfortunes, so he only sighed aud held his tongue. Uis comrades were not reticent, however, and soon had given the newcomer the details of his sad history. lie was very niii.di interested and looked at Akseuov with astonishment some, thing like uneasiness. Lie refused to answer any more questions and ried to turn the subject. But Akseuov would not, let him ; something in the manner of the man halt aroused bis suspicions, and he pressed him closely. "Did you ever hear them speak of my affair, Semioiiovitch t" saiit be; "and do you remember any thing about it!" "No," he responded ; the earth is lull ol ems, ami 1 beard ot it, ot course, but it's so long since it hap pencil I hat I have forgotten what was said." "Cut do they know who killed the merchant!" Aksenov contiui'ed "Tlie ono lit whose bast the knife was found, of course. How could it be otherwise! hy Dimitric- vitch, the bag was under your head and you (I hae heard him." Maker did not seem to notice the lip be made, and Akseuov said nothing either; but. more aud more convinced that be was in tbe presence of Kiazau's murderer, got up and lelt the room Bui all that night he could not sleep; the face of his wife, as she looked when he bade her good bye to go to the lair rose up before him ; lie saw Iter laugh, he heard her speak. He felt his little children nestling in his ar ns, and thought himself as young, gay and happy, unking iu the gariieu Willi bis t iun ' about him, then sealed on the stepsot the inn where they arrested hi in. Again he was under the lasb of tbe horrible knout. loaded witb manacles and herded with convicts. Auger as bitler as death lilted bid heart, and be would gladly bare died to be revenged upou the wretch tho brigand who hail ansed it all. Ha prayed all night eudeavoiing to calm himself, but it as in vain. Thus fifteen days passed by. Aksenov neither touched nor spoke to Makar Setniouovitcb. He never closed his eyes at utgbt, aud spent the hours iu such a tumult of con flict ing emotions that he scarcely knew what be was doing. Oue night, as he was pacing bis cell, as usual, wouderin what it was best, for him todo, be suddenly uoticed that a plank had been loos ened behind his bed. He stooped to examine it, a ben all at onto Ma ker Semioiiovitch stood before him, a frightful expression of rage aud chagrin distorting bis countenance. He would have turned away and left bia, but Maker seized biin by the hand and held him last, telling him with what incredible labor he had tunneled beneath bis cell, carrying away the dirt iu his boots. "Keep silence and you shall go with me," he said ; "say a word and I will kill you!" "Thou baa uo need lo kill uie," said Akseuov, trembling with pas siou ; thou didst that years ago. As lor myself, I have uo wish to escape; but whether I denounce you or uot God only will decide." The next day when the convicts were taken cut iu work, traces of fresh dirt were discovered on Ma ker's boots. Au exuuiiuatiou of tbe prison was made at once aud tbetuuuel was fouud. There was no evidence against any one in particular, uud Ibe con victs would uot reveal the It nth, tor thev knew that tbe oScuder I would be whipied to death. "Man of God," cried the Uovern or of the prisoo, addressiug Akseu ov, "you are just and truthful; give me the name ot the mau who did this thing." Beiiiionovitcb remained impassible, btu Aksenov trembled like a leal ; bis .lips open ed, be straggled to speak, but tbe woids would not come, "il 1 am silent," he thought, "they will let him of! ; but why should 1 do this !

He opened bis eyes and rec ognized Maker. "How now,' cr ied Aksenov an grily ; "hast thou still more need of me ! Go. or I will call the ffuard and he at tempted to rise. But Maker pushed hiui back up on his pillow. "Do not do that, Ivao Dimitrie vitch," said, he, "for I am here to beg your pardon. It was I who murdered the merchant Kiazan ; I who placed the knife in yonr bag; I would have murdered you too, but a noise iu the conider startled uie, and J, made my escape by the wiudow. In the uame of 'God, Ivan Dimitrievitch, give me thy pardon! I will declare myself guilty at ouce thou shalt be set ot liberty aud return to, thy home!" "This ia alt very easy to say," Aksenov replied sadly, "but I have suffered too, much; my wife is dvad; my children uud trieuds have forgotten me. I have no place to go but I forgive a,ll tbe same;" uud littiug Maker from his knees, the two old uieu minsled their tears together. "I will declare your innocence to morrow," said Maker, anally; I will suffer less under the lash ot the knout than I did when you refused to denounce me 1, tbe cause of all your misfortunes." "I forgive and pray for you," Aksenov replied, a great peace sud denly tilling his soul, He no longer regretted his home, his wile or bis childreu; he did uot even care to leave his prison.

Akseuov was dead J Coal-Tar Sugar, Atlautii Constitution. Now that it is settled that our leaf lard is to be made from pure col ton seed oil, instead of from kerosene, let us turn our attention to something uew. For iustauce, there is saccharin, a substauce that has recently beeu extracted from coal tar. S icchariu appears to be a very curious substance iudeed. its dis covery was the result ot some In vestigations set on toot by Profes sor Kemseii, ot tbe Johns Hopkins University, of Baltimore. Alr.Oou- sUntiue Fahiberg, working uuder 1'rufessor Item sen 's directions, ob tained from coal tar a uew com pound which received the name ot "benzoic sulphiuide." This com pound is tbe saccharin of today. Its sweetness is much more juteuqe than (hat ot caue sugar. This discovery proved to be the type of a new series of orgauio compounds which are still uuder iuveaiigaliou at tlie Johns Uopkius University, but F. W. Clarke, ot the United Sixtes geological survey, -writes to the Epooh that they bars no relation whavever to the sugars. Oue member of tbe group, very recently discovered, is us sweet as saccharin when first placed ou the tongue, but aud intense bitterness, comparable to that ot strychnine. soon follows as au after taste. Mr. Clarke says that the extra ordinary sweetness of the beucoio sulphiuide naturally suggested tbe question ot its utility, eithar direct ly, or as au improver of the lets aweet glucose. Tbia question has beeu worked Dp by Fahiberg tude Iteudeutly, who baa secured pat ents, baa made tbe substance wide ly known uudei its new popular name, and has begun, apparently, its niauulaciure upon a commercial scale. It baa beeu touud upou ex terimeut that tbe sulphiuide is phy siologically inert, passing through the syateiu unaltered aud doing no injury te tbe eater. lis cost most be considerable, however; many times over that of sugar, pouud for I ton ud; but its intense sweetening loer partly oQset the expeuse of making. The diabetic patient, to whom sugar ia dangerous, can use saccharin with impunity: aud his life, therefore, need no longer be devoid ot literal and snatei ial sweet ness.
