JUST BY CHANCE. A day and the life of Isaac Raw son was dawning to a close together. The rays of the setting sun stole into the room where the dying man lay, and he watched them intently until they faded away, lie knew he would never see them again. Death hail confronted the old law yer suddenly. His energies, over taxed through a long life devoted to ceaseless money getting, had col lapsed in nil instant, almost, and left that which we call life without the support necessary for its further con tinuance. “lie cannot live through the night; probably the end is not more than a few hours distant,” the old family physician had said but a few minutes before when the son, who now sat by his father bed-side, asked what the chances were. The son sat with bowed head. His features were composed in an ex pression of decorous grief; his hands were folded upon his lap, and at al most regular intervals he sighed. Had he raised his head it would have appeared that there was not the sus picion of a tear in his eyes, and that there lingered in their depths a look of quiet satisfaction which the lines of sorrow that were set upon his face could not entirely hide. l’erhaps the fact that he knew him self to be the sole heir to his father's wealth had something to do with shaping the young man’s inner feel ing. Some hearts are ruled by the desire for personal gain rather than by affection. “Robert.” Scarcely above a whisper the sin gle word came from the colorless lips of the old man. The man at the bedside started slightly, as one who is suddenly aroused from thought that has carried him far away from present surroundings. Then he turned and answered: “Yes, father, what do you wish?” “I have been thinking of your brother. Robert. 1 fear after all that I should not have treated him as I did.” The old man paused, exhausted by the effort which the words had caused him. An expression that was unpleasant to see tlitted across the young man’s features, but in an in stant it was gone again. “1 know that I have but a short time to live,” resumed the old man, “and things appear to me in a differ ent light. It was heartless in me to disinherit Jack because he married according to Ins own wishes instead of my dieiates. 1 shall change my will; there is enough for you both. Kach shall have half, and I shall die happier.” “Yes, father.” The words came gently from the son’s lips, but the look on his face would have sur prised the father could he have seen it. Rut the gloom was thickening, and his half-dosed eyes did not see. “Draw up the will as I wish it, quickly, while 1 have yet the strength left me to sign.” directed the dying man. Robert went to the table near by, lit a gas jet and began to write, not at all hastily. '•Why are you so long about it? A few words will certainly be enough.” impatiently exclaimed the old man after the son had been busy what seemed to be a very long time. I “I shall be done directly. There, I am through,” replied the son, as he rose and handed what he had written to his father. “That is right,” was all the latter said after he had read the will. 1 hen lie took the pen from his son’s hand, and with a great effort signed his name. “Now sign as a witness, and call Hannah; she will do as the other ! wit ness.” Robert affixed his signature; then he called the housekeeper and she also signed her name. “Now go to my desk and lake the old will and burn it. You will II nd it in the little drawer to the right.” Robert went to the desk, took a1 folded paper from the drawer indi cated, held it in the gas Maine until it was well ablaze and threw it upon the open fireplace where it lay a mo ment later a charred mass. ‘•There; it is not so hard to die, | now.” whispered the dying man. “I feel that I cannot live until Jack I could be sent for; but I want you, Robert to go to him this very night and tell him that my heart was not steeled against him to the end. Tell him of the will which-” Isaac Rawson ceased speaking and lay motionless. He was dead. * ♦ * * * It is not yet midnight when Robert steps aboard a train that will take him to tin1 city where his brother. Jack, lives; for has not his father with his dying breath told him to go to his brother this very night? Who would fail to respect the last wishes] of one now dead? Surely not a son. The city where Jack lives is not far-distant; but there is a river to cross on the way. As the train rum- ] hies slowly across the bridge, Robert pauses in the task of trimming his linger nails, in which he is apparent ly deeply engrossed, and looks out of the window down upon the dark waters below in which the stars re-, fleeted, gleam. A thought comes to him, which, though spontaneous in itself, is but the culmination of what has been passing in his mind ever since his father’s death. He takes from his breast pocket a folded paper on which the writing is but a few hours old. This he wraps about the handle of the knife he holds in his hand. Then he shuts tin1 blade so that the blade is held firmly. With a careless movement he lays the hand holding the knife upon the edge of the window. When he withdraws the hand a moment later it is empty. The knife is a heavy one and will go straight to the bottom, and with it the paper that is wrapped about it. The waters often give up their dead, but inanimate ob jects of value they hold within their depths. ***** It is a week later. The will of Isaac Rawson is to he read in the presence of those interested. It is a mere formality of course, for other than his two sons the testator left no kin. The sons both knew what they will hear. Robert at least knows, and Jack may surmise. Anil yet, who knows what may happen during the few hours that must elapse be fore the will is opened and read? “You are early. Mr. Drew will not he here for half an hour yet," are Robert’s first words to his broth er Jack as the latter enters the house of which Robert already considers himself the sole owner. “I thought it best to have a few words with you before Mr. Drew ar rives,” is Jack’s reply. Mr. Drew is the lawyer to whom the necessary legal transactions in connection with this will have boon entrusted. “You told me that father had said something about a new will just be fore he died : tint that none but the old one, made fifteen years, could be found.” remarks Jack to bis brother, when they are seated a moment later. The remark is made with an inter rogative inflection, so that Robert feels impelled to reply. “Yes, no other will was found, though I searched everywhere. Fath er's mind must have been wandering when he spoke of another will.” “Possibly: still you didn’t think of searching in the river?” is Jack’s next remark. Robert turns pale; then the blood surges back ami bis face be comes almost purple. “What are you driving at? What do you mean?” lie asks. The words come like gasps. “Only this. On the night when you came to tell me of father's death, some young men were returning from a fishing trip on the river. Just as thc\ were rowing under the bridge, a missile thrown from above struck one of them on the back and fell to the bottom of the boat. See, this is quite a heavy knife, and if a piece of paper hadn’t been wrapped about it, it might have hurt the young man it struck quite severely. The young man happens to lie an acquaintance of mine. II*1 thinks the knife was dropped by some one on a railroad train tlint was crossing the bridge1 just then. Now, I merely wish to suggest that, when Mr. Drew conics, we give into his hands this document which fell into my friends boat, and that we say nothing about the old will at all. How does the proposi tion suit you?”—[Arthur Lucas. Human Nature. Listening to some people tell a story is equal to judging a view by what you can see through a dusty window. Some people think that they pay a debt by telling their creditors every other day that they have not forgot ten that they owe it. Extend sympathy to some people and they begin to cough all the more loudly, to show you how bad they arc. Let to-morrow take eare of itself, and you will find that it will let you take care of yourself when it gets here. Many girls get married because their folks are not able to keep them, and find their husbands in the same fix.—[Parson White. The wicked things that man would do for money, woman will do for man. II is hard for a woman to please. If she makes apple pie, her husband asks for lemon ; if she makes pud ding, the children cry for pie. If she liakes her potatoes to suit the children, her husband will not eat, them. A woman who has to cook to suit live orsix appetites lias a hard time of it. ► The smaller the deposit a man has in the bank, the oftener he walks by to see if the bank’s doors are still open. Everyman believes that, though he can count those he likes on one hand, it would take both hands to ( count those who like him. “You see my mistakes; I see yours.”—[Parson Twine. I child in North Atchison the other day asked thirty questions in five minutes, and the average is greater than that. A woman never blames a man when she can possibly blame a woman. Boast of your wife's good cooking to a guest, and you will have the, poorest dinner you everhad when you get home. If a man abuses one woman in the presence of another she distrusts him. and if he compliments some other women, it makes her mad. Before marriage she sends little notes lo the olllee inipliring after Ids health ; after marriage she sends lit tle notes iuijiiirino after his pocket book. It is easy for a man to lie a model husband when he has no wife. There never was a man so humble or obscure that his biography would not be interesting. It is only on the first trip that he takes away from home that a man writes “notes by the way.” If the room is too warm, and you open the door, every man who conies in will think it is his duty to close it. The same legs that dance for hours without tiring give out in live min utes carrying wood. In asking for an impossible thing you only waste additional time. Some men must have new friends every month in order to have any friends at all. Did you ever see a boy go out at u gate when he could climb the fence? Some people are. kept so busy blushing for others that they have no time left to blush for themselves. It is the wonder of a pretty wo man's life that her husband does not realize that he is envied. If some men succeed only in rais ing a big, overhanging mustache, they are satisfied. Kvery sorrow is partly wrath. Sentiment anti poetry are good in their places, but the best of things are sometimes misapplied. Good rhetoric may be vert poor history. “Where did George Washington live, after he retired from public life?” asked the teacher. No one seemed to know. “Was it at Washington, or Mount | Vernon?” suggested she. Still there was no reply. “Come, children,” she insisted, “some of you must know.” “I know, teacher 1” piped up the smallest scholar. “He lived in the hearts of his countrymen.” [Har per’s Young People. DUDLEY AGAINST ARKANSAS. The contested election cases lie fore the House, including that of Keatherstonc against Cate in th“ First Arkansas District, were all set tled by the Republican National Committee before the ‘opening of Congress. The pretext that the Re-1 publican majority in Congress has! anything to do with them except to1 follow the campaign committee's in- ! structions were thrown aside in the case of Mr. Cate, for \V. \V. Dudley, treasurer of the National Committee, appeared before the House Commit tee on elections and gave his instruc tions openly, with no other conceal- ■ ment than the jocular one that lie was acting in a private capacity as attor ney for the contestant. The First Arkansas District was selected for disfranchisement because of the race troubles in Crittenden county, though they had nothing whatever to do with the Congression al election. It is immaterial to Quay and Dudley what Democrats are un sealed in creating a working Repub lican majority, but. as far as possi ble, they select districts in which they can find material for partisan distortion, regardless of whether or not it is pertinent to the merits of the alleged contest. There is no con cealment of the fact that the Demo crats of the First Arkansas District are to be disfranchised in their rela tions to the Federal Congress be cause of a quarrel in Crittenden county over county offlees. The Re publicans who have spoken to the case in the House have offered no ar gument except to assert that Dudley is a patriot, and that the people of I Crittenden county are desperate and unscrupulous in the management of their county affairs. This is their whole case, except a tin box with a double slot which they never offered in evidence. They have produced it before the House, and showed how a ballot can be slipped into the slot and out at the back of the box. Af ter the exhibition of this box Mr. Cheadle, of Indiana, called Dudley “the best politician in America.” In that sense the inventor of the box produced in the case managed by Dudley is just that kind of apoliti-j tician. If there is anyone in the j country besides Dudley who could invent such a box, Mr. Cheadle must be mistaken in what constitutes superlative goodness among pol iticians. It is not worth while arguing the case, however. Argument is wasted with such men as Quay, Dudley, Clayton and McLure. Arkansas is not damaged by the attacks of men ; who eulogize Dudley. The appeal lies from Dudley and his agents in Congress to the country. Let the work of throwing out Democrats go on at Dudley’s discretion.—[St. Louis Republic. A Monstrous Wheel. Standing iu the main shop of I lie Dickson Manufacturing ('oinpany, in Wilkesbarrc, IV. is one of the big gest wheels in the world. It is de scribed as reaching out of the wheel pit almost to the sky-light, far above the traveling crane, and dwarfing all other machinery in the place. It is lifty-four feet in diameter, and will weigh, when in working trim, 200 tons. It was built for the Calumet and Hecla Mining Company at Duke Superior. The ottlce of this mam moth wheel will be to lift waste or tailings and lling them into the lake. It will elevate and discharge a sutli cicnt quantity of sand every twenty four hours to cover an acre of ground a foot deep. It is armed oil its outer edge with 4.12 teeth. The gear seg ments, eighteen iu number, are made of gun iron, and the teeth are ma chine cut, epicycloidal form. 1'liese teeth are cut by two milling ma chines, operating simultaneously at opposite ends of the wheel pit, and working day and night for a hun dred davs. They are as smooth as glass, and do not vary a hair’s breadth in uniformity, notwithstand ing the fact that there are so many. The wheel is to be driven by a pinion of gun iron containing thirty-three teeth of similar pitch and face, and it will run at a speed of 000 feet per minute at the inner edge of the I I* steel-scooping buckets about its outer circumference. The buckets art' about four and one-half feet long by twenty-one inches deep. The great wheel looks like an exaggerated bicy cle wheel, and it is constructed much on the same principle, with straining rods running to centers, cast on the outer sections of the shaft. The lift ing capacity, at a speed of (500 feet per minute, will lie 3,000,000 gallons of water and 2.000 tons of sand every twenty-four hours. The cost of the wheel in place at the mines will not lie less than $100,000.— [Iron Trade Review. Fabulous Wealth. This is the. kind of a fabrication that appeared in the Memphis Kven ing Democrat, Monday, under the guise of a special dispatch from Pres cott, Ark.: There has just died at this place a remarkable man. Mis name was Alden Davis, and for years lie has lived the life of a nuscr. Me came here In lM.xt, and bought a farm on which he built a small house. Davis had grown miserly and starved him self to save money that he knew he could never enjoy. Me lived in scpialid poverty and spent only eleven cents a day for his subsistence, lie was Mo years old, and when attacked with pneumonia in a fatal form, he refused to have a physician prescribe for him. saying that $1 was too much for so slight a service.

Me owned considerable stock in the (ileus Falls Insurance Company, and has any amount of real estate here and in Missouri. Owing to Ins retired man ner not much is known of his antece dents.

I remember having to advise a man who had fallen into a sad, mo rose life, and had put himself under my counsel; ami I said: “Suppose you begin by passing the butter at the table.” He needed to be on the outlook, conscientiously, for little oc casions to serve those around him. Take care iu the least exercises that you care for others. ”1 do not like that man,” said a sound observer to me. “I saw him let his wife pick up Iter own hand kerchief.” This critic was right in that quick judgment. ”1 judge him by the way he treats his dog.” This is a wise criticism, and if it is wise in criticism, it is wise iu life.
