The only relatives I had were a distant cousin in New York and an uncle, my mother's hrolher. with whom my father had quarreled in early life and lo whom our branch of the family had never become reconciled. News reach ed me one day that this uncle, a morose old man, had been sudden ly stricken with dixease, and had expresned a wih to see his only sister and her child. He was very well lo do. As a pwperons mer chant on South Water street he had accumulated a considerable fortune, and it was with renewed hope that mother aud I set out lor Cliicaco.

He rect-ived uk wiin cota politeness, but informed us much to our astonishment, that a visit to n;v uncle's home on the North Side could le producliveol no good in fact, that my uncle was as mucn against my mother a ever in fact, that he had Ioiik ago disown ed his brother a family, root and branch. "The source ot the information l had regarding my uncle s wuhes was of such a reliable character h.at this extraordinary statement from Ms partner set nie thinking. I could nol reconcile wun me ex pression which hud fallen from I he lips of the fick man : 'I would like to see Mary and her little daughter before I die.' a. a A 1 ueterminK to ac. ai once. I knew my uncle was very sick not ex peeled lo live, in fact. Some thing in this man's face told me that he led. I lie reason was noi far lo seek. My nncle, as I have said, was a rich man. Thu fellow did not want near relatives at hand at Bitch a lime. I knew that my uncle had made a will years be fore. Mr. Samuel Whitney proba bly figured there prominently, as my uncle was childless, air. Whitney did not want the will altered- "'Mother,' I said, 'you must go and see what you can do at the house. You must go alone. 1 dontwish Mrs. Whitney to bee tne. Neter mind why.' "I was the sironger or uie two, Mr mother never resisted me. She went end returned afier an!to suspicion, which suspicions hour's absence to t ay lht admit- might lead to an investigation of lance was denied her. - 1 my trunk and effects, which would "How thankful I was now that I had saved little money. It ena bled me to live in an humble way for two weeks, during which lime I had issued forth daily on my lours of investigation. 1 returned home one day with a large bundle, which I unlolded in tun presence of my mother. A display of the following articles brought from her pale lips a cry of astonish ment: Twe- coarse calico gowns. one pairol heavy cheap shoes, one straw bonnet ornamented wiin rea fealhera and blue ribbon. one pair of blue spectacles, one brown wig, two cheek plumpers, a pot oi rouge, another of powder, a hare's fool such a theartrical people use in their making up, and a large red bandana hankerchief. Then I announced that I was about lo make application tor a poriiiou as servant in the house of Mr. Whilnev, my uncle's partner. "The next morning there isued forth Irom the little lodging which had teen the departure day after day of a weary, pale, spiritles', very blonde and quae renne vniinrr ladv. an uncouth, rosy, bux om servant cirl. whose only defect seemed a somevrhat weak eyesignt, which necessitated at all times the use o! spectacles. For an igno rant country girl she seemed sin ularly quick and smart in the per formance of her household duties, In a week Mrs. Whitney had vot ed me a treasure. In a month I had sized up every member of the family and had come to me con elusion that Samuel Whitney was one of the createst yillians the world has seen in a long while. "1 had discovered that my un cle was completely in the power of Mr. Whitney and his wue. mey alone attended lo his wants and cave him his medicine. Not an other living soul, except the doc tor, was permitted to approaei him. Once, lo my treat indicna tion, heard my moi Iter's name mentioned bvlhe sick man. He had evidently been frequently in thehrhitof askiiift tor hih sister " 'Why does not Mary come and see me' lie was asking. " 4I have written to them sever al times' replied Whitney. "The liar! Almost I had a mind to lear aside my disguise, rush in, declare tnvself ami comfort hun "And have spoiled everything. My uncle had never seen me. While Whitney would have been flustered at first. I should have been ignomiuiously thrown out of the house. "Take some more of this medi cine.' I heard Whitney say inc. "'No. no more of that. Medi cine won't save me. I don't like that stuff, Samuel. I think it does me more harm than good. A new light broke in upon my brain. I had heard of such things, but I dismissed the idea as loo ut terly improbable. Whitney could never be re-enacting in the nine teenth cen'.ury the crime peculiar to the age which produced the Borgias Tie could not be slowly killing this man by poison. "But though I dismissed it the idea returned to me with tenfold force that night as 1 lay in my nar row cot. Although it was long past midnight 1 could not sleep. It was a very close, sultry night. 1 aroee aud opened the door of my room to have more air. "As I did ho I caught the sound of voices. "'What was thai P It was Mr. Whitney who was speaking. "'Nothing,' replied her husband. " 'But I beard a noise.' " 'It is nothing, I tell you ; rats, or something like that. Go to sleep.' "The Whitneys were lying in bed awake, and their door was open. Beyond it was the room of the sick man. An irresistible de sire to hear further prompted me lo steal softly from the room into the passage way. My foot caught in the mat. I could hear Mr. Whitney raise himself np in bed. 'Who's that P he called out "My heart 6tood still for a mo ment. 'It's Emma, sir 1' I replied. 'What are you doing out in the passage this time of night P he ask ed suspiciously. "'Why, I ain't in the passage,' I replied. 'It was hot and i just got up to open the door.' " 'Well, co back into your room,' said Mrs. Whitney, 'and dont let me catch you out of il till morn ing.' "But I wouldn't go back.

Yet as it was I ran an awful risk. I stood here my natural self; no rouge, no wig, no spectacles, just as 1 had risen from my bed. Every dictate of prudence told me to go back: yet an inner consciousness whispered, 'Go forward f " 'Are vou gome lo stand there all night P came now the exasper ated voice ol Mr. Whitney. " 'No, I'm not,' I snapped out : but it's hard a Door servant girl can't get a breath of fresh air,' and I banged the door too witn mucn unnecessary violence, as if I had got out of temper. "Had 1 retreated into my room t "No; I had resolved to dare everything. In that brief mo ment of time there had come a vision lo me of my poor, helpless uncle in the power of these wretches. I had banged the door to, but I had lelt myself outside standing in the passage, with beat ing heart and limbs toal tremnied, for I knew that the flaah of a light might reveal me at any moment, and I had learned by this time the desperate character of these peo ple, the Whitneys. Beyond a doubt of it, they were slowly pois oning the man whose wealth t bey coveted. "It h id been impossible to get io the sick chamber, it was too well guarded for that ; but 1 had had to wash some medicine glasses, anu l had drained into a lit I le vial the contents of one not entirely swal lowed. A local druggist whom I took into my confidence had told me it was undoubtedly arsenic. "Well, that hisy's out of the wav.' I heard Whitney remark when I had shut the door. 'Do you know, I don't like the looks of that girl. Discharge ner v "Discharce her I' said Mrs Whitney, 'I wouldn't do that. She'e the best girl I ever had, and she's such a fool, too. I'm sure she suits in everv way.' "'If I thought she suspected anvthinif' crowled Whitney, 'I'd soon settle her. Do you think she is asleeD vet r "'Whv. no: cive her a little time.' reulied Mrs. Whitney. 'How impatient you are. Wail ten min utes.' ""I am impatient ; wouldn't you be! Think of all I have put up with from that old dotard in the next room. The years of labor, ol weary waiting, the indignities to which he has subjected me ; how 1 have to toady and cringe to him to net a small share in the busi ness. Of course I'm impatient Will he never droo off. I wonder. That last dose should have done it.' "All this lime I was standing al most paralyzed with an unspeak able horror. Aniifiefinable dread took possession of me, a deadly terror seised upon my heart, my knees trembled, I dared scarcely breathe. To stand alone thus al dead of night and listrn to those wretches plotting how to encom- Qthe more speedy aeam oi a ess man. "To remain where I was was to court di -co very, and something told me a horrible death. It was equally impossible to retreat, for tne noise oi opening- my room uor would be the signal for instant in vestigation by the already suspic ious Whitney, and 1 had no time to suddenly as.cme my ordinary dieguise. There remained but one course to pursue. It required the exercise of the greatest caution aud more courage than I believed I posessed. "There was a small empty room beyond the apartment of the Whit neys, which commanded a full view of the sick man s chamber. Once there I should, be compara tively safe. "But to reach it I must pass the door of the room where the Whit neys lay. "Carefully pouing myself. I es sayed to pass across the interven ing space. Mowly i advanced, moving first one limb and then an other, hardly daring to breathe, and feeling forward with my hands outstretched, lest I should encoun ter some unexpected omtacle. 'I had salelv passed the open door ot the Whitneys' chamber. when I became confused, and in the utter darkness lost my way. Vainly I stretched out my handa. At last, to mv erest joy, they fell unon a door handle. I turned it softly and noiselessly and entered As quickly and as noielesty I closed It. There was a dull light in the room. I looked around and bv its ravs saw that by mi-fake I had entered the apartment of my sick nncle. "He was broad awake and star ing at rne with two glaring, awful eye. The living image of my mother, a he had known her in his Touth. and clad in my white nitrht robe, hie diseased aad die- tnrted imaginatioa completea ihe illusion.

'I do not understand,' he said vaguely, as one in a dream. His terror seemed to have departed at the touch of my hand. " 'Listen,' I said, 'I am not Mary your sister. I am her daughter. We heiard you were very ill and wished to see ua. ao mother and I came to town. We have been here for weeks trying to see yon, but they kept us away. Don't be frightened at what I am going to tell yon. The Whitneys are not your friend. Tbey are giving you improper medicine. Don't take it, uncle, lor heaven's sake.

Hark, he's coming now to give you your medicine. Pre tend to take it, but uo not swanow it. It's arenic.' "A dreadful etoression passed over the face of the old man; but even in that moment he thought of my afety. " 'Hide, child, hide,' he whisper ed, and he pointed to the closet. "from there 1 wit nested what confirmed my suspicions. It was Samuel Whitney who poured uie draught which my uncle pretend ed lo and did not drink, subse quent analysis has, you ki.ow, proved it 10 be a most aeauiy poi son, itorror si ncKen aiineeuur- mity of thi man's crime, with the knowledge that instant death awaited the penetration of my disguise, I wailed only the coming ol daylight lo pick a quarrel wilh my mistress, which resulted in my instant dismissal. I left her house to report at police headquarters, but something had alarmed the Whitneys. When the officers reached the hcuse the birds had flown. "My nncle has been dead a year. My mother, sole heir to his consid erable estates, lives, as you see, surrounded by every luxury. As I am only twenty-two, and quite wealthy in my own right, I pre sume I am to be envied." It teat Leek aest." Judge Chrisman made a notable speech in the Convention Monday in which he vigorously attacked the renort of the Francise Com- aT miltee. We give a sketch of what he said in regard lo the outrageous proposition as to "ability to under stand the Constitution when read," and fully endorse every word ol it: And right here I top lo say that the proposition that in 1895 a man shall be able to read the Con st itnt ion, or be able to understand any clause of it when read to him, stamps the whole scheme of the Committee with disfavor. It don't look honest, straightforward and manly. It looks like a farce to make a registration officer decide whet her s voter rightly interprets clause of the Constitution, it the registrar decides that the vo ter rightly interprets the clause, he ia a qualified voter. If he does not understand it he cannot regis ter. This section, the meauing of which has been the subject of learned dissertations by the St o- rys, the Marslialls and the Shark ers of the bench, are to be sub mitted to the voter who cannot read for construction, and upon the decision of the registration of ficer i.i lo whether he correctly construes its meaning depends the right of l he citizen lo vote. Il looks as if it was intended that ii the registrar wanted the man lo vote he would read him some Mich clause as : Slavery except as a punishment for crime shall be forever'orohibited. "Do yon un derstand thai t" "Oh, yes." But if he did not want him to vote he would read him the interstate claue or the section forbidding the Legislature to pass X post facto laws and demand aeon struction.

Bknefits fbom Mulchiso. The benefits Irom mulching iruit trees as J 17 ara manv. savs Jiomi una xurm. The mulch checks evaporation and thus retains moisture in the sou, which is a decided advantage in a dry time. The soil, therefore, does not bake, but remains open and porous for the free admission of air, while the earth worms and mi crobes are doing their work to en rich the soil. The mulch used gradually decays and furnishes needed humus.
