Then tho name of Private r.ellly was called, und a keen-feutured lit tle Irishman stepped forward.. He was one of the patrol. Corporul Stamford, first relief, was in .charne of it. . Thoy had been lutnllnff as fur ovef as tl" "Kuo'.vo-a laily," and on eomtnu bnck No. b told them of some nativea at lif second bouse. torooral Htainford tipsfed him (Heilly) In the Hist yard near the street to head off any, that tried to run out that way, in ease they stirred up a mare's nest, nnd took the other "fellers" nnd wMit round by the front.

And we was lsugtiiu' about It and sayiu' llilly wasn't the boy to make any mistake about his orders, when we heard the lieutenant eome a runnln' swift, down t'other side the street and then saw him scootlu' it for the ojeri p'rade." "Did the witness recognise the of ficer? slid ha see him plainly?" "Yes, the electric )itlit was burnin' at tbo corner, und be'd seen "him sev eral times driving by the 'bar'ks.' " , Was the oflicer present now? "Yes," and Rellly's face reddened to meet the hue of his hair. lteluctuntly, awkwardly, pathetical ly almost, for lit nu wise did Identi fication, as it hapiwned, depend ou his evidence, the little Irish lad turned till hia eyes met those of Stuyvesant, sitting pale, calm and collected by the general's side, and while tho eyoa ot ull men followed thoso of Heilly they snw that, o far from showing resentment or dismay, the young geiitleman bowed gravely, reassuringly, as though he would have the witness know his testimony was exact It what it should be snd thut no blame or reproach attached to hlui for the tolling of what be had seen. Then Dr. Frauk was called, and he fcava his brief testimony calmly and clearly. He recognized It as one he had seen and examined the prevlnna afternoon nt Col. I'.renf's ipinrtors on the Sun I.tila. Tt was lvini( on a littlo table In tho front verauibi. TTfl had closely examined it could not he mistaken about It, and whan he left it was still lying 011 that table. Who worn present wlu.11 he left? "Other then the Immediate, family, only I.ieut. Stuyvcsuiit." Had ho again vis ited the colonel's that evening? He had. He returnud an hour or so later to dine. The ladies had then left their scats in the verauda, and ha noticed (hut the jiistol turn no longer ou the table; presumed Miss liny hud taken it witli her to her room und thought 110 more ubout it. As indi cated by the inscription, the pistol was her property. Then I.ieut. Hay was called, but thoro was 110 re.sponse. In low tone the assistant provoxt murshal ex pinined that, the orderly sent to l'aeo with message for I.ieut. liny returned with the reply Unit Mr. liny hud t.w.o days leave and wus somewhere u- I town. He as yet had not been found, j A young oflicer of artillery volun j teered the Information that late the ; previous evening, somewhere about I ten, Mr. P.ay had called at the Cmir- tel de Meysie, far over on tbe north j side, lie was mo.-l noxious to find a soldier tiaiiied Connolly, who, he said, was at the Presidio nt the time the lieutenant's quarters were entered and robbed, and Lieut.

Hrick wus the first medical of ficer to reach tho scene of Hie mur der. Ronton was then stone deed, nnd brief examination showed the hole of 11' "biillet. of lnrie calilsT probably pistol, t4- rlejit over the heart. The coarse blue mil form shirt and the fine undergarment of lis'e thread showed . by burn and powd' r-stnin thut the pistol had been held close to or even 'against the brenft of the debased. The bullet was lodged, he belived, under the shoider-blnde, but 110 post -mortem had yet been permitted, a circum stance the doctor referred to regret fully, and it was merely his opinion. based on purely superficial examina tion, that dentil was Instantaneous, the result of tbe gunshot wound re ferred to. Pr. Prick further gave it as his professional ieion that post mortem should be no longer tkliiyed. And then -ut lai't cams Stuyvesant'g turn to speak for himself, and in dead silence all men present faced him and listened with hated breath to his brief, sorrowful words. He was the officer hailed by the sentry on Number B and called upon to come back. The sentry did not catch his name and had to have it spelled, lie frankly admitted hi." Impatience, but denied all anger at the eu forced detention. The infor mation about the Are at Col. Prrnt's hud caused him anxiety r.iid alarm, and ns soon as released by the sen try he had run, had passed the patrol on the run, but thertj had been no altercation, no misunderstanding even. The sentry had carried out his orders In s soldierly way that com pelled the admiration of the witness, and before leaving him Stuyvesant hud told him that hu had done ex ucily right. The news that the spiv try was found dead fhc minute thereafter was u nbork. I.ieut. Stay vpioint declared he carried no fire tivins whatever that right and was utterly innocent of thu sentry's death. He recognized, he said, the revolver exhibited by MaJ. MiicN'eil. He did not hesitate to admit that he had seen nnd examined It lute the previous afternoon at the quarters of Col. J'.rent, that he bad actually put it in his trousers pocket not two minutes before he left the house to go in search of Lieut. Hay, hut he solemnly declared that as he left the veranda he placed the pistol on a little table just to the right of the broad entrance to the salon, within that apartment, and never saw it ngain until it was produced here. Frank, candid, "open and above board" as was the manner of (he witness, it did not fail to banish In treat measure the feeling of an tagoulsra that had first existed against him In the 'crowded throng. Hut In the cold logic Of the law snd the chain of circumstantial evidence they plainly saw that every state ment, even that of Stnyvesstit him self, bore heavily sgalnat him. A lawyer, had he Ixen represented by counsel, would hsve permitted no such admissions as he had made. A gentleman, unschooled In the law, preferred the frank admission to the distress ..of Jsecina; v Mrs. Brent sod perhaps others called Into that presence to testify to his ksrlns; bad the pistol with him when he left tbe gallery. Brent in his bewilderment had blurted oat his wife's words In the hearing of the proTOSt marshal's people late the night Tfe, and he and his household wsrs yet to be called, and when called would have to say that though they passed and possibly repassed through the salon between the moment of Btuyvesant's departure and that of tbelr going out to dinner, not on of their number noticed evrti so bright sod gleaming an objact as Maldie's revolver. True, the light were not brilliant in the salon. True, the little (able stood back against tbe wall Ave or six fee from the door-way. Still, that pistol was prominent object, and a man must hsve been in extraordinary haste Indeed to leave a loaded weap on "lying round loose" In tbe ball. . That was the way "Thinking Hay onets" argued it, snd soldiers By the score crowding the sidewalk and en trance and unable to force their way la, or even to make room for a most Importune female struggling on tbe ouiAkirts, hung on the words of an orderly who, dispatched in fturtker eerch of Lieut. Jtay, was forcing way cat. flow is it gome; sedd he. "Why, that young feller's Jnst as good as hanging himself. II admits having bed tlw pistol that did tbe business-" Ten minutes later a Vtllyino serv ant went to answer an imperative lap at the peue! In thn nutatirve door of No. 109 Calle Ban Luis. Dr. Vraok bod been early to ace bis patient, and bad enjoined upon Mrs. Brent and Miss Porter silence as to last ulffbt's tragedy. Not until she waa atrooger was Miss Ray to be allowed to kuow of the murder ot Private Ueatna. "y that time," said he. "we shall be able to olear up till uiyetery I bopo." The colonel hod gone round to tho police station. Mrs. Brent, nervous and unhappy, had Just slipped out tor ten seconds, ss she suid to Miss Porter, to see an old army cbum and friand who lived only three doors away. Miss Porter, who had been awake hours of the night, hml finally succeeded, as she believed, in reading Maidle to sleep, and then, stretching herself upon tho lstmboo conch acrosa the room, was, tho ucxt thing she knew, aroused by voice. Kendy Hay had entered so noise lessly that she hud not heard, but Muidie bud evidently been expecting him. In low, earnest tone he was telling the remit of Ids searub tha night before. She heard the words; "Connelly Is down with soma kind of fever iu hospital and hasn't seen or heard anything of anyone even faintly resembling Foster. Then I found your old friend, (he brakemsn.

"And then, said Miss Porter, "my heart popped up Into my throat and I sprung from the sofa!" Hut too late. An awful, rasping voice at tbe doorway stilled the soft Kentucky tones and Ailed the room with dread. "Then you've no time to lose, young man. It's high time somebody besides me set out to help him.' That other young wan you call Foster lies dead at the police alatiou killed by your pistol.' Miss Itay, and Mr. Stu-- Tesnnt goes to fail for It. (To ho continued ) Dental .Notice.

In tbo Chilean department at tha Pan-American exposition there is on view the semi-fossilized remains of an Indian woman. The specimen has just been sub mitted to examination by Dr. John A. Millor, who-states that it is tbe body of an Indiao woman, supposed to be about five bun d red years old. She was -found buried in an old copper mine "n the Andes, near Colama. which was a part of the territory sub jugated by Pizarro and taken from Peru by Chile. It is sup posed that whilo working with stone implements used for ex tracting copper thore was a cave- in which caiiHed the death of tho woman. Being at an altitude of 11,000 feet, tbo rarefied atraos phere and the dryness of the mine, combined with the peculiar metallic qualities of the earth about bor, served to preserve tbe body as it is seen, to-day. It weighs less than Gfty pounds and is in a half mumiGed, half-fossilized condition. Thero are small stones embedded in the flesh at many points, and the blood wqich was forced from the ears is still to be seen in the matted hair, which has kept its dark reddish-black color. Sev eral portions of tho body are crushed, including tho shoulder, the chest and the lower limbs. Around the hips is a cloth of ancient weave, und the tools used and found with the remains make it possible that she wus a miner in the realm of tbe I neat). The sledge hammer and other ham mers are most interesting, as they are still attached by strips of hide to their handles, which are pieces of wood bent in the middle. The ctone is placed in the joint, so that both cuds were grusped, one in each hand. Ihe discovery was made in a mine which was opened to take out small pieces of ore. The body whs covered by about seven feet of looao eurtli. Scieniilic American. Grand Military Review. Pawnee Hill and his hundreds of mounted heroes tiro comiuz to visit us November 2.
