As a boy I bad but ono great trouble in the world, and its nnmo was Eliza. "My Eliza," Godmother Kiehards calkd Lor. She was a very nightmare. I am sorry to say that news of her do. miso would hnvo given him intense joy. But that was my godmother's fault, for but for her I aliould never huvo cast a thought upon Eliza. , My Eliza was nothing now to me. When I wai in frocks this model little girl, a year my junior, wits spoken of ccstuticully, whenever Godmother Richards cumo to the city. Sua was her ot'jer godchild, a model of grace and luuutv and obedience. "i shall bring her up for Billy," she would say. "They shall bo little man aud wife. Don't you want to Ben 1 a kiss to your Eliza, Billy a nico sweet one?" At four I used to send it. At ticrkt I allowed it to bo taken. At ten I refused my lips. It was hard t.) bear then, but noth ing to the persecution itbecunio at 1G. Then I ivm obliged to hear what pieces my Eliza could pluy upon the piano how much French sko could tpcak how bhe hal ou long dresses how much handsomer she was than any godmother knew, and, in bhort, how it was the hope of the old lady's heart to bring us together some day and make a match of it. Even the dislike I had to quarrelling with tho fairy godmother who could convert my puinkin of hopo into a coach and horses with a wuve of her pen, could not make mo exhibit any show of com placency when Eliza was spoken of. I scowled in sileuco and refused to praise.and had the satisfaction of hear ing my godmother inform my mother in a stage-aside, that actually the dear boy was head aud ears in lovo with Eliza already. This sort of thing went on until I was 22. crowinsr even worso with time, and fast approaching a climax. "We were to bo introduced to each ether before long; a meeting was on the tapis, We were ordered to be mutually stricken with love at first sight, to do our courting in the short est possible space of time, and to live thereafter with Godmother Richards, who confessed to having divided her roDertv between us with a view to our ultimate union. According to her account of affairs, the young lady would throw no obstacle in my way, but "felt as though she know mo al ready." "Forward little wretch," I said to myself. "She is perfectly disgusting. No power on earth shall ever make us acquainted. Perhaps my brother Tom, who introduced 'My Eliza' into his conversation in a most trying man net, and who drew a picture upon our room wall of our imaginary meet ing, wherein she fell into my arms in a highly dramatic style, excited my wrath against the young lady to a pitch to which it could scarcely have arisen otherwise." Godmother Richards never did any thing like other people. She never wrote to say that she was coming and came. But always pouncod down upon us at 5 of the morning or 12 at night, without warniug. I wus shaving in the early morning, when soma one at my door cried, don't mind me," and in came tho god- mother. "I'n nr.. y.-ui f.i If fir i joyful fit pne, my ,1, uc Billy," lm find. "Slid lots Consented j,t last to In-' t you. I'm going ta hnvo y'i n!i your ureiit ut my Imuso f . . r n Wi t h.

The hurprinj luil mile mo gash my chiu.im 1 1 turned iipoii'Iii r with any thing but an nmiulili! coil nti tisiiee. "I hopo nho ban not been annoyed on my account,'" I Miid, surconti"!ly. "Doll't Utgo her to inert In", I beg. I wouldn't have her do anything ilm ngrceublo to plcuso me." But hho did not sou tho sarcasm. "Don't bo angry," sho mid. "Girls are naturally timid, and hho knows how smart and humlsoiiio you arc, tin 1 is just a little afraid of you. She thinks ever so much of you, and in always talking about you." I did't use wicked language, Imt I wanted to. "You'll bo there, of course," con tinued my godmother, "and look your best. Bo hiiro to come. You'll ud mire her so, I know." And hho departed. "G voluntarily to meet Eliza, never! That afternoon. I packed my tiuuk and fled tho house, determined never to return or give my godmother a clue as to my w hi rt aUouts as long as Eliz-i awaited my coming. "Let her leave her confounded money whero tho pleases," I said, apostrophizing my absent godmother. "So ono bhull sad Jlo mo with a wifo ncuuit my will." My cousins tho Cripins, took sum mer boarders. Their houso always could bj stretched to hold ono more. Thither, therefore, I ported v.ithout ceremony. "Wo can accommodate you with an attic room, if you'll put up with that," said tho old !aly. "Wo had a very nice room yesterday, but now its occu pied. But you've lot it for a young litdv. so vou won't lui!:d," I declared that I did not mind, and meant it ; when at the tea table the voting linly in r.;esu in tiawnea upon me.

That night when I laid my head upon my pillow I felt that I had met my fate. I did not seek to fly it. I talked with her; I sang with her; I rowed with her and I drove her about I took board for a mouth instead of a week.

I wroto an answer in which I iu a measure, de fied my godmother aud said a good deal about youth and health, and a disposition to keep myself, and was glad after all that it was over, and wont on boating and driving na before. But one day I received a sudden akock, on learning that Miss Smith was going homo. . We wero to part. I resolved that wo should not be separated before I knew whether she rally liked me well enough to make me happy. The next day I drovo her over to an old fort and having reached the epot found ourselves alone amidst crumb- ling stones and grass and tangled bushes, just as I hoped I should, Within the fort a great block of stone loy with moss upon it, thick and green and spongy. There I mado her seat herself. ' "Lizzie," I said, "wo haven't known each other very long, but I have known you long enough to be Bure that I love you with all my heart Will you be my wife, Lizzio ?" Rim nnat hpr Aves down and blushed and said nothing. "Can't you like me well enough?" I asked bending over her. "I I think I do." faltered Lizzie. "But tho thing is, what will they say - about it?

"I believe," said I, with tho calm ness of despair, "that you aro 'my Eliza.' " "Godmother Richards does call mo Eliza.

New York News, Soap Made From Waste Jt ja difficult for one to always realiza how much we owe to sci- ence and invention. By these two powerful genii of modern times waste has become valuable, and littlo or nothing is lost. Under the namo of soap stock a peculiar product appears to bo prepared in tho province of Leece, in tho consular district of Brindisi. It is prepraed by subject- jng the residue of tho olivo kernels to chemical processes under the action 0f sulphuric acid, after all means of extraction by pressure have been ex- hausted. Of this substance it is stated 1 1 that during 1894 the quantity pro- duced amounted to about 1,200 tons, tho medium market price for . which ranged at about $90 per ton. This article, which is of littlo value as a lubricator, has au extensive sale tnr nan in Roan manufacture, and in years when tho oil crop has been fa- 1 . vorable, considerable quantities have been exported to America, Great Britain and northern Europe. This 1 oil locally known as "olio sulfureo," or sulphur oil, from the system of . . . to extraction. The refuse left after tha extraction of this oil is known "suusa," and is used for fuel for staam I . - boilers by millers, as being mora economical man coal. AMKNdAXnOkkORS An Evcwitrbv.-j Doncrib a II n? eacro by tho Turk?. Moslem Women Chet p tin Butchers at Their Work. Tho following description of th tniiHHitero of Armenians by Turks ut Aiiitnb is furnished by au tyt witness of tho occurence: "All the west and south pint of tho city to'cim d to bo in mi uproar ,crowd of people rushing 111 every direction. Tho roofs wero covered with excited men, women nnd children. Tho strango mingling of cries of fear, anger, and defiance, with occasional piMol and gun shots, niiido up au exhibition of tho most fearful tumult aud confu sion. Already troops wero hurrying for ward, and soon a company of souto sixty soldiers wero stationed iu front of tht) American Girl's Seminary, with pickets out to cover the approaches to hospital and college. Eroui our posi tion wirf could seo tho narrow streets dense! crowded with intensely ex cited p.eople. Now nnd then a rush wus made upon some houso or gate. Thero was a rally of defenders ou tho roofs, onioiig whom women wero fore most, using stones, clubs, and some times guns und pistols', as best they could. Sometimes tho attack was beaten off, and tho assailant withdrew to organize a new assault. Some times agate or wall was broken down, and then tho noise of conflict subsided and tho work of massacring and plunder began. L iter wo saw long lines of people moving off to their homos, laden with plunder, and later still the flames and smoko rising from the burning houses. "What we heard was the iudi scrib ablo roar of the mob, pierced by tho sharp reports of pistols and guns, with now uud then shrieks of agony and fear,aud over till aud most horribio of nil tho loud, shrill 'ziillghat,' very like tho cry of our Northern loons, pro longed and sharpened, raised by tho Turkish women crowded on tho roofs and cheering on their men to the at ack. Th massacre aud pillage began in tho markets aud in theso parts of tho city whero Christian houses sur rounded bv Moslems neighbors of fered easy points of attack. Theso places having been looted, tho mob moved on toward what are known as tho Christian quarters. Here tho re sistance became more obstinate. Iu two of theso tho old street gates were still in use, by shutting which the dis trict enclosed became a small fortified community, capable of making a very strong resistance to an unorganized mob. Here tho assailants were ar rested and beaten off. "Under such general conditions the storm of mob violenco raged without much abatement till the middle of tho I ....1. tlJl nernoon, when tho tumult grauuaiiy subsided, and night at last brought quiet, except in tho vicinity of burn iag houses, whero tho uproar went on till near midnight. By morning military arrangements soemed to have been made, which gave us hope that order would bore stored. Soldiers were posted at in tervals around tho Christian quarters of the city. Very early in tho morn 1 ing of tho 17th crowds of villagers wore seen hurrying toward tho city from every direction, evidently eager to share the plunder of another day of riot Tho soldiers met and turned them back, and even beat some of them and chased them olX They, however, soon returned in increasing numbers, and being joined by friends from the city, became very turbulent, About noon, through a held glass, could be seen an officer, apparently a captain who rode forward into the mob and addressed them at some length. Immediately, without any show of opposition from any one, the whole crowd came pell-mell with the soldiers into tho city. At tno same time much tho same thing occurred in the northwest part of tho city. "Then for an hour chaos was let loose acain and the horrors of tho previous day were repeated, ouly that its the Christians wero prepared, ana d8' ill ing in a strong position, wero gener- aa ally ablo to beat on tueir nssnuanis.

Yt t another submarine boat has been invented, or is it uu old friend un b r an assumed name? Bo this us it may, a submarino boat, ordered by tho Brazilian government, was to bo tried this week ou tho Seine, and tho trials being satisfactory ether and larger vessels are to bo built, soy tho Court Journal. Tho new boat, which is named tho Goubet, is somo twenty six feet long, about live feet six inches in diameter iu the center, and has a displacement of about ten tout. Tho motive power is supplied by electric ity, aud the screw hIso serves tho pur pose of a rudder, the shaft being joined so as to eu iblo it to be turned either to tho right or to the left. Three men, tho inventor claims, can livo under water in tho Goubet for twelve hours with the supply of com pressed air. This has, of course, to bo proved ; but iu the event of any thing going wrong, a lead keel, weigh ing over a ton, can bo immediately dropped, and the boat will ut onco como to the surface like a cork. Oa account of electricity being used for supplying tho propelling power, tho sphere of action of tho new boat must of necessity bo very limited, as com passes cannot bo used, but it could do all that was required of it, it ti.ken on board a vessel and launched when tho enemy's ships wero in bight. Tho Goubct's mission is to throw torpe does, uud if tho arrangement for throwing these projectiles can bo re lied upon, bho will prove u formidable antagonist. To sink the Goubet water is let into compartments in tho lower part of the boat, and when it is suuk to any required depth iu that position it remains exactly, the arrangement for biuking tho vessel being so beautifully and carefully arranged. One ounce of water more or less it is said, will cause the boat to sink lower or. como nearer the surface. Sleepy Hens. Lina Berry has a big chicken farm in West Buxton, and has several hun dred hens. He brings many eggs aud chickens (dead and dressed) to Port land. He loads his wagon the night before and starts at 3 a. m. He has only to hitch up tho horses and drive He did so last Monday morning. It is a drive of seventeen miles to this citv. He reached hero at just about sunriso, says the Portland (Me.),. Press. As he approached the United States' hotel to deliver 6ome produce, some one shouted at him and asked if ho brought his hens to market roosting on tho cross bar under tho wagon. He paid no attention, supposing the man was guying him. But when ho stopped at tho hotel and others called his attention to four hens roosting under the wagon, and just waking up, it is doubtful which was the most as tonished, Mr. Berry or the hens. Two of the latter wero panic-stricken, and started down Federal street Ono was caught in Temple street, and the other got down almost to Ex change street before it was captured. The cook at the hotel bought the four hens for a dollar and took them home. How many hens were asleep under tho wagon when Mr. Berry started from homo he can't toll, because his yard is overrun with hens, but it is very possible that thero were more than four. The papal bulls of tho eighth and uiuth centuries were written ou d .0:1 paper of a fair quality. 4
