THE WAVE'S DEATH.
Is it a dvimm of some sweet unknown land. That thrills the trembling wave far out at sea? What strango, wild longing draws resistleaaly The eager waters to an unknown strand? Unhindered by the tempest's inighty hand. From lure of sunny skies and soft winds free. They hurry on in passionate ecstasy. And, breaking. <%r upon the faithless sand. O, restless soul, whoso every yearniDg breath Is full of vague desires and sweet, dim dreams. Across thy fur horizon glows and gleams The dazzling land where passion beckoneth; Yet shalt thou find, fair as the vision seems, Liko the lost wave upon the shore, but death. —Susan Marr Spalding. A BAGGAGE SMASHER Between the stories of Conductor Tom Pope and Sandy McTougal, backed by Sandy McTongal's friends, one gets a pretty good idea of Sandy's remarkable adventure with a voice, or, as Sandy terms it, witli the devil in a box. Tom Popo is conductor and McTougal is baggage master on the Air line, ; which runs from the Atlantic ocean to "the middle of next week." "Most astonishing thing, that hunt of Sandy's for a voice," said the condnctor, the other night. "Urnph!" grunted Sandy, "that may ho yer way of lookin at it, but I call it diggin for the devil, and findin him." "Are you going to tell this story?" in quired the conductor. "Not by a long chalk," McTougal an swered. Then Tom narrates, and very prettily \ too, how he and Sandy were transferred . to night runs in August last, and how lonely the baggage man became because he was cut off from fellows to listen to his stories and offer him cigars. "Yon allers smoked 'em, Tom," inter rupted Sandy. "I don't smoke, ye know." "I did get a good many puffs that way, I'll admit," said the condnctor. "They were about the only thing Sandy ever gave that I could get any light out of." "Aro you telling this story?" askcil McTougal. "If so, tell it." "Sandy was lonely and miserable," continued his friend. "Nobody talked to him or gave him a quarter for not smashing their baggage, so lie took to t brown studies and naps lietwcen stations. The night of his voice business" "Devil, I tell you," cries Sandy abruptly. " Was a crowded one," continues Pope, without noticing the interruption. "His car was jam full of luggage." "And the more trnnkH Sandy has on board the crosser he gets. There was a camp meeting on a switch-off track, and at the junction I picked up a lot of nob by passengers who were leaving for othor places of amusement, and there was no end of trunks." "McTougal got things into shape about 11 o'clock, I reckon, and as there's a part of the run where it'H a good hour between stations he got ready for a snooze. lie picked out the softest trunk in the pile on which to pillow his head, tilted back his chair with his feet on the rounds, pulled his hat over his face and went to sleep. How's that, Mac?" "Quite keereet," responds the bag gago master. "Very well; then you tell it for awhile. I wasn't there, you know." "It didn't seem 's if I'd been asleep moro'n a minute," liegins Sandy, "when tliero was a lively jump of the car an I sort of coino to life with a jerk. At the same time I lieerd, as if 'way off, a noise like some one a-talkin. But I thought 'twas a brakeman outside, an was jes' a-doziu off ngnin when right at my ear, in a thin, sharp voice, su'tliin said, 'Oil, Lord!' "I ain't no fool, I ain't," Sandy asserts, throwing back his heud defiantly, "an when that tin whisper comee into my ear I jes' half opened my eyes 'spectiD to see some of the boys around. But not a livin thing was visible. So I said to myself, 'I snored; that's what's the mat ter,' an off I goes a-noddin an drekmin.' "Then agin I hears that voice. It says quite distinctly, 'I want to get out!' "Now, I won't a hit mistaken this time. I lieerd it. But 'fore I could get my wits together there was a yell sound in 'way off. " 'That's my death call,' says I to my self, instantly calling to mind fellows who had heard like sounds an were deud in less'n a week. Then I says to myself, 'Sandy, don't he a fool!' an jumps to my feet as wide awake as I am now. "It was a woman's squawk, and 1 could have sworn to it. Then it sung out in tin trumi>et style: " 'Help! help!' "I hauled over the tool cheßt, an the water barrel, and the cupboard in the corner, an looked out on the platforms an did everytliin a man could do under the circumstances, to find out what was a-makin of that fuss. I went to the side door to cool myself, an wasa-fannin my face when, blaine me! if I didn't hear a cornet start off with the 'Rogues' March,' and a gruff voice foller it with: " 'ln the midst of life we are in death.' "I yanked my head round, an didn't seo nuthin that wasn't there before. That threw me off my pins. Then a rooster crowed, an a feller with a cold in his nose counted ten forward and then backward, an another cuss, with a bullfrog voice, ordered me: 'Wake up! the devil wants you!' You needn't - laugh, gentlemen, when I tell you I run; an so'd yon if you'd been thar. I was certain the devil had come for me —late hut sure—an I didn't wait for him to ask for my ticket." Tom Pope at this point broke into a stentorian laugh. "If, gentlemen, you'd seen Sandy come flying into the car where I was sitting, you would never stop laughing. You may not believe it, hut his brown face was as white as your shirt fronts, and his eyes were as big as billiard halls. He dashed down the aisle and whispers in my ear: " 'Tom! Tom! Come with me!' " " 'What's the matter, Mao?' I said. " 'What ails you?' " 'Tom, the devil's iu my car. He's jeen a-cuttin np for half an hour, an I'm most crazy. If you're my friend come with me!' "He wasn't drunk, because he doesn't drink. It wasn't religious enthusiasm, because Sandy had no religion. I al most believed he meant what he said, and that he had been called for. I got up in a hurry and followed him. "I hadn't more than got inside the baggage car when from among the trunks something sung out, 'Shut that door and pull down your vest!' "Sandy wanted to fight, then," con tinued Tom. "He danced around that car like a prize fighter in the ring, until the voice cried out quite loud: 'Damna tion!' 'Pshaw!' I said to Sandy, 'That's a boxed up parrot.' " "An then the parrot told you you lied, asserted McTougal. "Yes," says Tom, cheerfully. "And then you said—do you remem ber what you said?" "No, Mack; but wasn't I at your sido when we got into the next coach a sec ond late?" "We came back with two brakemen," McTougal remarks, continuing. "Ono of them brukemen looked on top of the car an under it an iu it. He stuck to it that there was a ventriloquist about, hut gave that idee up when he couldn't find nobody." "We flung those trunks right and left in a lively style," observed Poi>e, "but not a thing did we discover—no human living or dead thing—not a place from which the noise came We were puz zled, you may believe; and if the search had stopped there the road might have warehoused that coach, for no railroad man would have traveled in a car that was haunted. But the end ejtme. While we were looking in each others' faces, and frightened in being blocked in that sort of way, the voice spoke again. It said very distinctly: 'Let me out! lam dying—dying!'" "It was nnder my arm, the voice was," Bandy exclaims, "in a big trunk that had come from camp mceiing. I sung out for Jake to run for a doctor, if there was one on the train, an Tom an lue put that trunk on the floor as gently as if 'twas glass. 'Twas light enough. We thouglit the poor thing innst he almost a skeleton. 1 got hold of the sledge hammer. 'Keep up your courage, ma'am!' I shouted, 'un we'll have you out in a jiffy.' "You should have seen Sandy at that moment," says Pojie enthusiastically. "He looked a hero, every inch of him. He gave that hammer four sweeping swings. Crash! crash! Rip! tear! Off came the top, and it was flung clean across the car. A pile of light, fleecy stuff followed. A dozen faces looked anxiously into that trunk, expecting to see the body of a dying or dead woman. Sandy seemed bcsido himself with anx iety. "We crowded around the trunk and the doctor knelt down beside it. He pulled out a lot of rags very carefully, run his arm down on a prospecting tour, lifted up a great wad of cotton, took a good long look under it, rose to his feet and began to curse everybody and call 'cm a pack of fools. Then he changed his tune and began to laugh. I asked liim a little angrily what ho was making sncli a fuss alxrat, and if he proposed to take out the body. " 'Body! body! ha, lnv, ha, ha! See here, gentlemen!' and he tossed out the cotton from the trunk, showing a fnuny looking machine at the bottom. 'This is Stringfellow's phonograph that he's had down to camp meeting,' the doctor said. 'He took one of Edison's concerns and rigged it up so as to go by clockwork. The shaking of the car set it in motion. It's been repeating, parrotlike, only what was told to it by the saints and sinners. Very simple, you see. I won't charge you anything for my visit, conductor. Good night,' and off lie went. "Sandy, our friends here want to know how that dream of yours over that trunk ended." "Oh, they do—do they? Wal, gentle men, I had to pay the cost of that trunk, an trunks cost in these times. It took a month's salary to do it. which isn't com plimentary to the road. I learned ono lesson. If I ever want ter open nny man's luggago in future I'll smash it in professional style."—E. D. M. in New York News. Woudr of Fluorine Chh. Silicon, a crystalline substance closely resembling the diumond, exposed to fluorine gas, gives a very beautiful reac tion, showers of brilliant spangles being scattered in all directions from tlio white hot crystals, which are finally melted. As they do not fuse under 2,100 degs. Fahrenheit, one can gain some idea of the immense energy Bet free during the combination. Both lime and chalk under the same circumstances give a most gorgeous incandescence. Phosphorus, as one might expect, does not fail to illustrate its powerful affinity when exposed to the gas. Prussian blue reacts very beautifully and burns with a pink flame. A crystal of iodine placed in a current of the gas gives a pale flame, and a heavy liquid distills over, which etches glass and hisses liko red hot iron when thrown into water.— Chambers' Journal.

The images of the Gods in India aro not made by a separate caste, hut the carpenters and masons respectively make the largo wooden and stone idols set up in the temples, the potters the clay idols consumed in daily worship, and the braziers, coppersmiths and gold smiths the little images in brass, copper, mixed metal and gold and silver that are always kept in private homes. The East Indians regard an alloy of brass with six other metals—gold, silver, iron, tin, lead, making with the copper, and zinc of the brass, a mixture of light metals— as a perfect alloy, and this Ib high]} prized as a material for sacred Images. —Philadelphia Ledger.

A number of cattle were landed at the Weems line wharf yesterday morn ing. Their driver was Jaines Groucher. The animals seeming quiet, Groucher started to drive them without any ropes. On reaching Conway street a heifer, which had been moving along very placidly, became very much ani mated, and made things very interest ing for the balance of the herd. The street being too wide for her she danced up an alley between 129 and 181 Con way street. A gate blocked her way, but only momentarily. Through it she went, and then another obstacle pre sented itself, Mrs. Emma A. Pbole, who proved to be no more of a stop to the heifers onward progress than Fort Car roll would be to a modern man-of-war. In a moment Mrs. Poole was knocked to the -ground, and in the kitchen it went. There some destruction of prop erty was committed, but not enough to satisfy the heifer. The dining room was next entered, where the well known quadruped-in-a china-shop scene was re-enacted. The hallway was then tuken in. and a lamp was knocked down. The heifer wanted to conquer higher worlds, so she went upward into a bedroom. Here, tem porarily, repose was sought on the bed, but it fell under the animal's weight, other damage being done during this occurrence. From here, the weather being warm, her heifership went into the bathroom and hopped into the butli tub. Mrs. Poole then commenced call ing for help, and, with the assistance of a blue coated soldier, drove the animal out, and she at once sailed up Hanover street and there entered another house, but did 110 damage. The driver finally caught the animal—Baltimore Ameri can. An inrutiiuiea Tomcat. Miss Ethel, daughter of D. W. Pease, of West Carrollton, is the possessor of a Maltese cat. Early in the spring the cat deserted his place in the house and took up his abode with the chickens, remain ing day and night in the chicken yard. Ho soon formed an attachment for an old black hen, which was reciprocated, and the two became inseparable. Thus matters went on for some time, when the hen, rememliering that the usual season for multiplying and replenishing her species had arrived, selected a nest in the poultry house and made known her intentions in the usual way. She was at once supplied with the necessary eggs and commenced business. This, it was supposed, would end the rather strange flirtation and Tommy would re turn to his mat on the porch, but not so.

Gooi-glu's l'rofi t h from Frulta. The Georgia fruit crop is a big tiling this year, and everybody is interested in knowing what the growers will make out of it. In the peach and grape crops alone conservative estimates show that about 500 carlouds of peaches and 100 carloads of grapes will leave the state for foreign markets during the present season. The estimated receipts for the peach and grape crops combined are $750,000. Reports show that the peaches are well formed, of good size and perfectly sound, and this, together with the de crease in yield from last year, makes good prices and ready sales an assured fact. Other important fruit crops will largely swell the total sales, and lots of summer money will bo put in circula tion where it will do good.—Columbus (Ga.) Enquirer-Sun. A Fuiiiouh Sculptor of Ituly.

A suggestion for a summer dinnei table from a recent book on home deco rations is to have "pink lampshades, largo clear glass fish bowls filled with red, pink and yellow roses, and soft sashes of torquoise silk meandering among the flowers, and tied in a large, careless bow at either end." Several observant ladies have discov ered that vegetarians have clear com plexions, and have either renounced the use of meat entirely or partake of it sparingly. Lady Paget, wife of the British ambassador to the Austrian court, is one of the recent converts to vegetarianism.
