Told by a Detective. "I was disgusted a few days ago at a case I worked up," remarked a de tective. "A young lady who was possessed of considerable money and a number of jewels sent for mc. She had been robbed of somo diamonds valu ed at several hundred dollars. I fi null y found all but ono pin, thov having been pawned. I obtained a descrip tion of the man who borrowed money upon them, but for several weeks could not locate him. Whea I did his landlady said that he had left that moruiug and was goiug to Baltimore. I watched tho depot and was soon re warded by seeing tho mau step out of a hack. I seized his arm and said, 'You are arrested.' 'What for?' he asked in atone that showed ho was not much surprised, but greatly frightened. 'That will be explained at the station,' I replied. There was a feminine shriek from tho hack, and, glancing into the hack I saw it win my fair client. They had just been married and were starting on their wedding trip. I took in tho situation at a glance, and then realizing that 1 was powerless under tho new order of affairs, I said: 'I see now that you are not tho mau I want, and let him go. Then ho began to bluster, and taking him aside, I gave him to understand I knew of his robbing the girl to pay tho expenses of his courtship, and ho quieted down very suddenly."

A well on a hill overlooking the sur rounding country known as the Wheat Hill, eighty feet deep, twenty feet eand, forty feet solid blue clay, twenty feet quicksand aud ground, has a good supply of oflicero, not affected by the dry weather of this season. Storms are indicated iu advance by a discoloration of the water, it having the appearance of milk being dropped into it, and is quite agitated in ap pearance when pumped from the well. This condition of the water usually continues but a short time, generally becoming clear before tho storm com mences. With au approaching storm these conditions of the water are more or less extreme, as tho storm will be more or less severe. As to its reliability aud accuracy as a weather forecaster for Western Now ! york, a correspondent says: "I con sider it correct from observations of tho past summer and full, while tho weather prophets have made mistakes on account of unexpected counter winds and highs and lows.

The process consists in subject- ing wood pulp to a chemical treat- Blent which changes it into pure cellu lose.from which it is spun into threads thnt can bo woven as ordinary cotton threads. As celluloid material, which is made from cellulose, may bo col ored by chemical additions, it is quito likely that such artificial cotton can be produced in time iuau iufiuito variety of bright colors. And if it is true, us reported, that thread can bo made from pulp as cheap as from tho natu ral liber of the cotton plant, tho im- portonco aud value of tho discovery is : almost beyond calculation.
