It is a love story which has lasted a life ti:ue and will end only t in the death of the two eharacters i- a rolvtd. The heorine is an old lady. the granij-dauhter of Rapp. the loan ler of this singular community of Ger mans, which can not be paralleled in l :his or any other c, mntrv. Strangers who wv:akell through the I grass-grown sir -*; of Economy this I uorlning were. or th? time be:u,.traa.- t ,lanteli to a ty ,ci;al Germa:n illage.

Across :hie center of the churcch extends a narrow aidle. with :t platform it each end. one Iwing" occupied 7r two rgeans. at which old Mr Henrici and lMi. Ratpp sat playing. On otLh a des +f the ai-le ,iIgh-lacked benches exten Jed to the rear. 'The men sat on one .:de. and the women on the other. fae- - ing each other. It was a singnlar ;ratherinc. rcm:nding one of Amlercican colonial days. Miss Bapp wore a cos- , tume which was startl ng for her sae. It consisted of a purple gown. a blue neckerchief. with red. blue. and green uorder, and a nmazarine-ile silk-quilt ed -Normandy bonnet. When the sing inl of the opening hymn. accompanied by the organ-playing of our aged hero and heroine, who have 'acriticed love and devotion to the cruel community law of celibacy, had been onociuded. Mr. iHenrici walked arro-s the aidle to the opposite platform and began the 'ermon of the morning. He sat on his chair dur ng its ent re delivery. Miss Rapp is about 78 years of a'e. ;1hen young she wasalovely girl. retin etd.highly educated. and po.e.settd f con idler:alle musical talent. She and Ja 'olº Henrici fell desperately in love w th eact other, but of course could not marry. They have for many rears iiveil in the same house-he in one vinI with several old male members of siit- -ociety, while Miss R:*pp. w th her w,.men. reside in another wing. As thee sat side by side in church this ,n,,ruug. the sympathet c chords of the few persons present conversant w.th this secret romance were awakened, :und there was a feeling of sadness as tme rel nious services were participated cn by the aged lovers in the quaintest vei ,implest and sincerest manner pos aible. Another love romance. involv Ing a leading member of the communi tv. is still more interesting, and it re snlted in the temporary insanity of the Iold man. Twenty sears ago he was sent on a mission to the oil regions, where, forgetting his vows. he became infatuated with a charming girl. In some war this terrible news reache'I Fconom,, and Mr. Henrici imnied ate Iv started for the o Icountry. Arriving iii the town he was horrified to find h s associate out carriate-riding with h s charmer. Henrii was espied about the samne instant, and the lovesick Eoono mite immedi:ltelh deserted his lady friend. and leaping from the oarr age :scaped to the wo-els. A search was made which lasted three days. and, there being no trace of the m ssing man, Henrici returned to Econonmy. The wanderer finally cam. home, nut he was on the verge of lunacy. He was contined in DL)mont and shortly re coveredl. He :s still living, one of the most honored members of the commu rity, and has,. no doubt. forgot th es :asp ade of twenty years ago. Dr. Fite, no longer a nmember, su eeded his father as the village physi :ian. He lhad never studied med l:coner. but hadil read carefully the pinderous ree pe-boks. treatives on herbs. etc.. inheritedl from his father. Finally Mr. Henrici took him to a ueighboring phys cian that hlie might become more roticient. Tihe phywician was aheeat and s oung Fite bcame so engrossed in the charms of the M. D.'s wife. who re-i :eived them. that Mr. Henrici became I tlarmed, and the object of the visit was it once atandoned. F te was escorted Rome aain. Shortly after the v Ilage was via ted by an enidemic, during which a German girl. who volunteered is nurse. and young Fite became en :mnoredt of each other, anti planned to _et married, A clergyman from a ,Ieiihbor ng town was secured, and .neeting tile couple at the railway station ,hey were married. Fite was given $1.000 andM expelled Ifrom the see etv, and with his brde he removed to Allegheny City, wherel he practeed for several years. He was siterward taken baek on a salary. bnt soon took to opium-eat. ag. ad drifted tway never to return. A traet ic ine dent occurred recently. John Wolfhanger. the society's store seeper, at the invitation of country oovs twice attended festive gatherngs. Bth times he was detected byw Mr. Searicis and punihed ia an unulknown et, it is sul ~ea manner. The seam d time WoltaagPr, who wau strickes with remerse, took a dems of eorhine and d.ed. A strange story in relation to the bnilding of the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie railroad has conte to lignt. This was Eaccomplished tifteen veasrs ago. mainly throutzh the efflorts of the Ecoin ,mitee, represented by Mr. Henrici. Dnring the paire of 147 a son of Founder Rapp became frightened, and wisth the consent of the society convert .ed $100.000 of its property into silver ollars.

Pa Protection .f Fish. - Seth Green. in the Amuerstca Agri. culiurstt for March. makes this forcible appeal for the protection of fish: t The matter of protecting our fish is a C, subject which should intere't every 3ii good c t zen. whether he be a lisherman af or not; it is a quest:on which concerns `a the food snppiv of the country, which bo is of vital importance to every man. ,o woman and cbild. n The class of fishermen who do he t most damage are those who take the, dp fish during their spawning seasons. th It is at this time that the fish come v into the shallow water to complete n their task of procreat on and are then re easily captured. All fish hare certain ., localities, to which they resort at the " season of the year Whlen thi*ir egts are In matured and ready to cast. Different as varieties seek different localities. s. These localities are well known to fr poachers, and where the ti-h congre- s gate n these plac-. in large schools. . ther draw their net around theta and lit frequently capture the whole lot at a !h single haul. pl Another method through which our • inland waters are deor.vedof hundreds I' of thousands of young fish :anually, is a through the me:an of the murderous to spear and jack light. The dupredators •1 approach the spawn ng beds of the sal mon trout, bas., or oter ti-h at ilight; gj the strong light of the jack. as it is called. thrown unon the water, enables ,, the spearman to see down in the clear t, water for several feet; the darkness of Ia the night serves in the same war as al cloak thrown over the head in the dsv- k time in looking below the ice. through 0 which means. .s many of your readere know, objects can be seen for a con- a stderable distance down. The Ash have apparently little fear of the light, i and the bsat is easily paddled up to within a few feet of the tish, when the r deadly spear is sent into them. Not is only are many captured in th:s way,. but many are injured which are not tl brought to the boat, so that they die A by be.ng pierced byi the t nes of the LI spear, and death is the remult in a few hours or dat a, according to tihe injury. It There are also several waves by which i aish are destroyed while on their spawn- a ing beds. as by shooting, snaring. etc., but I th nk I have expla ned the mat- I4 ter suflic.ently. and trust that it will m make an impression on the minds of mya readers, so that they will exert their influence to protect the fish from ill.. gal modes of capture at alltimes. and ti their wholesale destruction, particular- a Iv so when they are on their spawning b beds. --- is He Wanted Advice.

The arms end in two brass s, knobs on which the hands of the crini- d, nal will rest and the cha.r has a foot- a rest in which is fitted a brass plate. The 'i oaok of the chair is as high as a man's u shoulders. At the top is a small knob st with a hole for a peg. The positive wire of a dynamo-electr.c mach ne h Cronning up the back of the chair ends I in the knob. The negative wire runs O to a resistance coil under the chair. an~1 it thence to a brass plate in the foot-rest. Another positive wire runs to one of 0 the brass knobs on the arms of the chair, and he second negative wire to d the other knob. These wires can be q connected with adynamomachine miles d away. by conducting wires. The chair tl may be used in two d fferent ways. as o the two sets of wires are not operated 1 together. tl "'If the foot-rest wire is used some c prey ous preparation is needed, and a g mall silken collar is fitted sightly on a the neck of the crim nal. This has on tl the inside at the bac1 a small brass j i button wh'ch fits closely against the ti spinal pro, ess. This is connected with p 5 small silk cable which hangs down Irteely and ends in a bras. peg. This h cillar being put on the criminal in his cell, lie is then brought out n his bare feet and seated in the ehba:r. Straps 1 fasten his arms to the arms of the chair t and his legs tothe chair-leg. The brass teg of the silk cable is insertal in the f iole on the brass knob at the beck of i the chair and is there held by a screw. The bhere feet of the criminal rest on t the brass plate of the foot-rest, and the cirecit would now be complete were it niot that the positive wire is broken at a short distance from the chair, but I Sonnect on can be at once established I ' Sby turning a switch or pressing a but- I :on. When this is done the full charge· 1 ,fe lectricitt en*ers tihe criminal's body i at timhe spnal cord and passes out at has feet. the resistance coiL . h:ch it meets i under the chair, increasing Its force I and preventing it from injuring the ' JI namo machine on its return. The crtminal a killed instantaneously and I without mi as the electricity acts much more rapidly than the nerves of sensation. "'The second method of using the chair is to discharge the cnment into I the palms of the hands through the large brass knobs. In this ase no 1 coltar is needed, and the criminal's feet need not be bare. In either em alli the wires and apparatus, except ng the I small collar, would be out of sight, and I t h criminal would see nothing but an I ordinary chair. The sherir can signal i the executioner to turn thy switch, or r i can press a button on the foor, and' t in a second all would be over." Dr. Smith when seen yesterday in re *grd to the bill said: *'I had nothing to do with it Introdutiol. and thi matter had pretty much pased from ay astatien. as the State MediLalt smoiety took no ation upon my sau Spestion.

T'rie offer, we are informed. has created considerable em* ulat.on. and several are striving to be successful. After the school lecture Col Riley had a long and interesting onfoereneos with Pasqnal. the old chef. and devel oped many interesting facts concern ing the relations of the Yumas to the whites, their customs and habits of life, t etc. Although there are over seventy chil. I dren in school. Col Riley asked Pas qual why the others-about one hun dred--rema ned away. He replied that there were four causes that more or less entered into the answer to that question. In the first place many oI the parents and grand-parents of the children were poor and feeble. The government gave them no amistanee and the children had to contribute their labor to their support. and that many were desirous to come. but em that account could not. In the second plice. many parents feared that this school was bit a preliminary step to having the children finally removed to 1some other school in the east. Thirdly. that when the question was sneessful ly solved that their chiliren could be taught to read and write English. add figures. etc.. he then would be willing for them to cut their hair. asd adopS Stim customs and habits of civilbd lifie, but not unth then. If he livd to se the present expspment a sueeese he ,would cheerfull tmbrace it, and so I wo:uld his tribe. In the fourth plase he would not ask the government for assistance, but would gratefully acept what it mrght give in charity to his old Sand helpless people. When that was Sdone all the children should o~me, if he Shad influence to secure tsut! a result. Being assured by (ol. Riley that the children would never be sent from here Sonly at the r own election. andt that he Swould endeaver to remove all other ob e stacles, the meeting broke tip wtth as surance that both partes would work Sfar the suoesae of the Yum school.
