From his continually watching my everv \ . * movement, and seemingly more ex ! .. , , r ® - . . , j cited by my presence, I conceived the ! idea that his poor distorted imagina i tion connected me in some unaccount ! able way with his misfortune, and that j some time I should have to light for I my life with the madman, and s i , proved.

Access to this tower might be had through a small opening in the office ceiling directly overhead. This was my only refuge, and to it I sprung, hastily climbing from the top of the large ticket case, which stood directly underneath. Even while I was taking my hasty flight, I heard the crash of every tiling that was used as a battering ram against the office door. The mad caught up ono of the long which stood in tho y i m ^ n had ctt< vooflun vaiting-room, and at the second blow re tho «lour from i(a hingf;:,, when, dropping his weapon, he rushed in juat in time to discover my hiding place, as I drew my body through the opening into the tower. The room was very high, over eleven feet, I nnd I had a faint hope that, ho would not attempt to reoeh me, a hope soon dispelled, however, for ho immediately began to ascend. By a slight spring ho was able, to reach the I,pebing with his hands, and oling by tho finish running around it, and with tins hold he meant to draw his body up through it by tho strength of his arms, Looking hastily around iur a weapon, ; WiW luvky enough to discover mi old ho d ! hatchet, probably left there by the linemen, after making some repair# upon the w ires. Catohing this up with the back of the blado, I gave his kuuek : les such a severe rap that he was glad j to relinquish his hold and drop to the floor. j A second time he tried it with the i same result as before, when, evidently of I tiring of this mode of procedure, ho j gave utterance to nearly the first artic j ulate words I ever heard him utter. • Hoy Î ' he said, "1*11 have your life for that, if nothing more. Strike my hand but once more and I set lire to this depot, and roast you like a rat in his hole." This threat, which I had no doubt he would have carried out, filled mo with dismay. Oh, for a weapon with which l sould disable him at once! A blow upon the head with the hatchet I dared not risk now. I had nearly giv en up all hope, when a bright thought occurred to mo. I had a weapon, a novel one to he sure, but deadly— th*' electric light ici rex. Our depot, and indeed, the entire village, was lighted by electric ity, generated by water power at the dam, which ran the dynamos. Though it was late, the power was still on. Grasping my hatchet, with one strong eut I severed a wire. Instantly T wo all was darkness. or nearly so. lanterns, one white, the other blue, still burned in the office below, for it f the company that at all times after dark these two signal lan is a nil terns shall be ready for instant use in »ity. By their pale light l eould see every movement of the madman below, who still sat where he had fallen upon the floor, groaning and nursing his knuckles. The wire now, of course, was harmless; being severed, no current could pass through it. Taking ray knife from a pocket, 1 cut off the insulating material for three or more inches from each end of the severed wire «and awaited his My assailant was evidently surprised at the sudden extinguishing I «>f the light, and with a yell started to his feet, and began his third and last attempt to reach me. I held the two ends of the wire, one eomin; each hand. above the exposed points, my hands resting safely upon the insulation. As he clambered up as before, I struck the ends of the wire in together to try the power, Instantly following the contact, tho light leaped brightly forth, and showed him stand- ing there upon the little shelf, pro- to make the spring for the opening, with a puzzled expression upon his fiendish face at my evident control of the light. Then he sprang; both hands caught the coping and rested there. Now was my time. Quickly separating the paring s again, 1 touched lightly one to each of his bare hands as they clung, and let the full current pass through his body. Tho shriek that followed I hop,. hear duplicated.

In Ger many the demand is largely in favor of the lean hog. —Gypsum, when pure, is useful to many crops, as is well known, but especially to clover, corn, oats, grass, cabbage, turnips, etc. About a hun dred pounds per acre arc usually ap plied early in the spring. —If one proposes to plant early varieties of potatoes for the main crop, and would obtain a largo yield, the land must be made twice ns rich ils for varieties that would bo twice as long in coining to maturity. —Old fields that have been abandoned should be plowed and a green crop of some kind grown, even if only a few inches of growth can be obtained, and the crop turned under. This is better than to allow it to remain in fallow. —To Preserve Kggs: Take a teacup* ful of salt, and lime the size of an egg, and pour boiling water on them. When cold, drain off the liquor and put it on the eg crust on top; if so, add more water. This is for two gallons of liquor. —To prevent birds, mice, or squirrels from pulling up seed corn, pour hot water over the seed corn until it shall have become warm, then stir in a little pine tar until every grain shall be coat ed. Now mix plaster, ashes or line earth to dry off the corn.

The young birds have not much vitality, and chilly weather is pretty sure to take off many of them, ît is a good plan to have them hatched out under common hens rather than turkey hens, as the former are better mothers, and are not given to roaming the farm. The young birds should be given cooked food principally, and, as they have good appetites, they may be fed eight or ten times a day. As damp ness is fatal to young turkeys they should not be let out of tho coop until the dew is off the grass. -ii FOOD FOR HORSES. Tile Advantage of Bruised Oa*» Ovel Whole Clearly Bemonstrated. The hard-working horso is often guilty of what many farmers look upon as an unpardonable habit—oat bolting. That is, they are so anions to get their feed that they swallow their oats with out mastication, the result being that much of the grain passes through tho animal undigested. In such cases a few whole peas mixed among tho oats are useful. The horse is very fond of them, and in chewing them can not help masticating the oats also. But bruised oats are better for horses in the long run than whole grain fed with or without other coarse food, vantage of bruised oats over whole in horse feeding was recently well demon strated by an experiment made by the London Omnibus Company, which owns some six thousand head of horses. One half of the horses were confined to one kind of feeding, viz; That of bruised oats and cut hay and straw, and the other half to whole oats and hay. The ration allowed per day to each horse according to the one sys tem was, bruised oats, 16 pounds; cut hay, 7| pounds; cut straw, 2J pounds. The quantity allowed, according to the old system, was, unbruised oats, 19 pounds; uncut hay, 13 pounds. There was thus a saving of 6 pounds on the feeding of each horse, and this saving was not merely in the quantity but in the valud of the article employed, for straw in the former case took tho place of hay in the latter. The advantage of one kind of feeding over tho other becomes far more apparent when reduced to money value, saving by using tho bruised oats and cut hay is nearly live cents per day for each horse, which is equal U> 4312.60 per day for 6,000 horses. This saving was accomplished without any sacrifice whatever, for all the drivers and those having charge of the horses agreed that the difference in the con dition of the horses was decidedly In favor of those on bruised oats and cut hay and straw. Five cents saved each day on the feeding of a horse is not a largo sum certainly, but tt i* this prin ciple of saving small sums in every de partment of tho farm management that really produce« the best results. The best methods are those which can be cairied out at less expense than those commonly in vogue, «and yet prove more profitable to the fariiHT. — Vunm'i Hernw, Tho ad The COCAINE'S RIVAL* A Powerful Now iaeithttle at Prosoat Stonoc orpin. Dr. J. Herbert Claiborne, Jr., of New York City, has written an interesting ao count for the Medical Record of a newly-dia* covered alkaloid, with which he has been •*porimenting,and whose therapeutic value ta a local anæstehtic he concludes will not be inconsiderable, especially in eye diseases. His own researches have been confined to its effects on tho mucous surfaces of the eye and noso, but he thinks it may fairly be reckoned as a rival of cocaine, and feels safe in predicting for it a wide field of use fulness in all departments of surgery where local ancesthesia is desired. The new drug is derived from the leaves of a troo very much resembling the acacia gfenocarapo , and known in Louisiana as the "tear-blanket treo." The discovery of tho drug was due to an accident. Mr. Goodman, a veterinary surgeon, whilo traveling through West Feliciana Parish. La., had occasion to apply a poultice to a swelling on the fetlock of one of his horses. He used tho first leaves that camo to hand, saturated with hot water. After making a free incision In the swelling ho was surprised to find that tho horse evinced not tho slightest feeling of pain. The leaves were afterward analyzed and found to contain an alkaloid to which anæsthetic properties were found to be due. The •tenocarpin. Osr may become surfeited with getting, but ho never can be surfeited with right giving.
