Outside, n deciiyinji platform over hung the river, (lurk, rapid mill deep, in one quiet eddy of which a cork danced and fina'ed idly on the waves. One of those confronting faces was stamped with horror and grief unspeak able; the other sneering, demonical, exulting, murderous. "Your own last freak has sealed your doom. I tell you now that I have al ways hated you with nil my heart. Do you need to ask why ? Because you had it in your power to shower benefits upon mo because you were planning to baulk me of all I have schemed for yeais to possess, and beeause the whim which induced you to make your will in Alma Krru th's favor has left the way clear for me to get both the girl I love and the fortune I have en vied you, who!-, the slight impediment of your life is remov ed from the way. She is in love with you now, and she has no great liking for me, lutf women have been in worse hu mors wooed ; this woman shall find her self easily won." Thus Felix Rath, pouring forth the bitterness which had festered in bis evil heart revealing himself in all his hideous moral deformity to Elmer Noble, who had held him as his dearest friend. The stupor of horror w hich had bound the latter so far, broke. "Heaven preserve her from such a fate. Heaven trill defeat your villai 10119 purpose; it will never tie permitted you to do this terrible crime." "Will it not J We shall soon see how far heaven will interfere." Quick as a ll.ish his arm went up and the heavy cane he Curried descended with a dull thud upon the other s bead. The force of the blow sent Noble sugaring backward through the aperture ant out Uin the loitering platform. Tbu rot ten limbers swayed, creaking dianaily, and llien gave uway. There was 1. con fused scene for a moment of the li! icii water stirred and agitated by the dtbru, f rum Ibe midst of which a w hile. tleaih like face gleamed forth and then wits struck downward by a failing bum:. Ruth, peering down to make Ejre thai h;s victim bad not eseiped him, nv. it nil. 'If he hud the strength of Samson lie could not get out with nil that weight pinning hi 111 down,'' he mutlend, as he turned nwajr. He is gone. and my way is clear.1' And below, the cork on the prol lob bed up and dow n, and iliappcre!, at.d after an interval came to iW sort ite gain, s the finny pti7i! fought it bank- with hook and glittering bail, and made its escape for lack of the angler's skiirul hand. "Our poor friend is dead, Almn. To think otherwise is only to hope against hope. You know us well as I how the dread of sonic ini;, ending cvi.l hung over hitn; you kuow it drove: hi n to what is a strange step for so young a man to talie-tlw making of his will, and set tling of all bis worldly affairs. You knotf, aiso, what I am forced to believe, that in one of his desponding moods he dcglroyed himself. Whit else could his solemn charge to me have meant P "You have told me what that was,Mr Kalh. 'If anything happens, see that Alma's future is assured as I have provi ded for it, Felix. Tell her not to grieve too much, nod may heaven bless her when she makes another and better jchiiice. as I would wish her to do soon.' Those were his very words." "His very words," assented Rath. "It was the misfortune of his gloomy nature to be always assailed by doubts. It would be useless to follow the course of reasoning w hich may have driven him to his unhappy fate. As his executor 1 am bound to carry out the conditions of his will, and tit the same lime obey his laicsl charge. And Almn, Alma 1 listen tolmy love, hopeless while he livid. Your grief is my grief too, ray love, and all my life will be too short to show you the depth of my devotion." lie rose from his chair and came to wards her ns he uttered that passionate iippcal, but. with a sudden uplifting of her hand. Alum waved him back. She, loo. arose. For the first time he observed the glit ter of excitement, strongly repressed, which was in her eyes, ilsgknv staining her Miceks brilliant carmine, and a hint of it breaking her smooth, low tones. "I his is not the tirst time you have spoken of your love, premature as you doubtless know such a declaration must be. Instead of blessing my choice, should it full upon you. do you think Elmer would have cause to pray, if he knew of this, 'Heaven preserve her from such a fate!'" The words struck Hath like a galvanic shock, and before he could recover him self to reply, she went on passionately ' Once and for u!l you shall have your answer, Felix Rail). You shall learn all that your perfidy has availed you " She turned her face, radiant now with a look he could uot undeistaud, and called softly, "Elmer, hive." And, as if her voice had power to pierce beyond the giave. Elmer Noble stood before them. Was it Elmer ? What did this mean ? Rath drew bis breath hard, ice-col, 1 drops started out upon his forehead 11s he stared in terror and doubt that re solved itself into certainty as the other spoke. "Do you need any further answer, Fe lix ? Need I say that while I live I will relieve you of all further trouble regard ing either rny future bride or the dispos al of my wealth ? be assured.'' Rath, with a cry of tage and disap pointment, stalled forward. "Who are you ?" i.e demanded. "Not Elmer Noble ; that I know. Alma, you caiinot be so deceived. This fellow is an impostor, like him, indeed, but no more Noble than I am." "Then I would be reft of all nobility indeed." responded the other with pro vokirg coolness. Then, sternly, "Go your way, and remember that a blow upon the a end and a plunge in the river do tint always kill, my friend." Livid. gacp'mg, baffled, yet uncon vinced, Rath made a final appeal. "Alma, can you acknowledge this fel low in Elmer's ttead ?" Her calm gaze met bis steadily. "I know him to he Elmer. As if I could be deceived !" "And one might not think it wise ot you, of all men, to doubt my identity,'' cul in her rninpiiiiion. primly. But iloitbt it Rath villi, ami in the long watches of the nieht w hich followed, he studied out the cp! itiallonsot all which seemed most mysterious to him. This than who called himself by Noble's name knew all that had transpired at l!ie mill on that fatal night ; be h id tie, 11 three, an unsuspected witness of his crime. He s making use f this kno-vlede for his own.euds. but he-, Iiatii would not" !:e out , lone by a scheming villain like Imnself. The same means which hud proted successful iu the other's hands might win for him yet. When he prt-senled himself at Miss Erruth's house M:itn he was refused ad mission. A week haj mil gone by until he learned that a qq tt marriage was 011 lie tupit Ihtrc-.nnd wi'h H the bi!Itri:css of his tin iio'he i.,iluve he followed the I course he had already decided upon. On the morning of the wedding day he was there again, with a eonipiiiion this lime, and forced his way past the heiita ling servant us one who had a right. He sent a penciled demand to Alum, which she answ ered by appearing upon Noble's 111 in. "You do not believe my word regard ing this imp istor. I have hioughl you proof. Rcikins, my man, tell your story to this luily as you have already told i lo me." Perkins was a most disreputable speci men of thejfttK tramp, by his look, and thus adjured, he repeated His lesson w ith glib and thorough hardihood. He had been fishing from the hank opposite the mill, had witnessed the altercation ot two men within the structure, hud seen one strike the other a blow and fling hi 111 along with the falling platform into the river. Te man before hiiu was the mur derer ; he was ready to siveur lo it, and lor proof, why there was the body yet ut the bottom ot the river. "And, ugly business as it is," resumed Iialh, with iil-concealed triumph, "the bridegroom' must be arrested on iiis bri ditl morn. You need not look about you with the thought of escape, sir ; there are officers w ithout preparing lo lake you in charge.'' "First let me rectify one slight mi-take you have made," s.dd the other with re markable coolness. "I am not the prin cipal intended for this happy occasion ; ul.ow me to present to you the bride groom, Elmer Noble, iu all reality." lie threw open a door as he spoke, dis closing the wasted, shadow semblance of one whose indentity Rath could not doubt a figure reduced by illness and sufTeiing, with bandaged forehead, und reproachful eyes turned upon that false friend and would-be-murderer. "That will do" said the speaker, ns Alma ieft him and flitted to Elmer's side while all Ruth's brazsn effrontery was not enough to sustain him in t lie face of this unforseen event. "We have got the bet ter of your game II r. Rath, and the sooner you get out of this with that wretched tool of yours his face will hang him yet. I say, it as a prophesy the belter it will be for you." They slunk away nt his bidding, an equally despicable and thoroughly dis gusted pair. Diphtheria. a ccrtE wHton has almost wnou.Y re- M :V1-:D TUli FATALITY OF THE DISEASE. The Scientific American snys: Dr. E. N. Chapman, of Brooklyn, N. Y., has discovered an antidote to the poison of diphtheria, by which Ibe percentage of deaths is reduced to less than one in ljf ly. Statistics show that the percentage 'of recoveries in cases treated under the usual practice is about thirteen, or eigh'y seven out of a hundred sufferers suc cumb lo the fell diseas". I) phiheria tirst appeared in this coun try in 1S5S. Dr. Chapman in 1859 lost several cases oiid became distrustful of regular methods. We had been using alcohol in the cure of ship fever, and he determined, though contrary to all rules, to try il in diphtheria. To his surprise several of his patients recovered. He then tried quiniu,and found that it aci'd well but not quickly. At last he settled on a combination of the two, alcohol und quinia, and with these remedies, be claims that diphtheria is more amenable to treatment than many cr mmou diseases. In an epidemic such as diphtln i i i, all arc effected by the morbific agent., but a few only jielJ toil, ihiture vigorous persons have vitality enough to resist the disease. Children and young adults are the usual subjects. Dr. Chapman considers that Ihere is almost always, superadded a local and i.iiect excitng cause, such as defective exercise, impro per (Met, dfirk rooms, . lump honsis, im perfect ventilation, anil poisonous em unalions from decomposing tilth in priv ies, ctsspools. sewer p pes, tic. To such agent ies the strongest constitution wiii soon succumb. Tne blood being deter iorated, ils crisis is impaired and its vi tality lowered ; and then the symp ilhelic nerves, failing ' nceivc due nimuliiN waver in their efforts to carry on the animal lunctionf. "All local treatment." he sajs, "is worse than Uscles- It tiliaust the nerve lorce an 1 induces presier injection of the blood vtaseie. Ihus favoring tin: exudation." "Alcohol neutralize llie diphtheritic prison, sets free the nerves of animal hie. subdues the few and ii.fliniaiion. destroys the pabuiu.n that sustains the mtinbreiie. cuts short the disease, con qmrs i'S mpteUcatid siiiel.1 oilier nieni lrr of the family fnru an slut k. f on the subsidence of the fever, as Is usually the case iu from Si to 36 hours, purru lent secretion begins to loosen the mem brane, and soon hereafter, lo detach it in U.tky ragged fragments. This process may take place und recovery be possible, eveu when the larynx aud trachea r implicated. The membrane is seldom renewed, when this secretion is main tained by a steady use of the remedy. Alcohol is us antagonistic to diphtherial as bellaudoumt to opium, or quinia lo malaria. Like any other antidote, it must he given promlly Hi the outset, or otherwise its potency will be lessened, perhaps lost altogether." "Alehohol does not act as a stimulant, nor induce any of its ordinary effects. Enough may be given to cause profound intoxication iu health and yet there ex ists no signs of excitement or odor iu the breath." Quiuia is nn efficient slloy to alcohol it energizes the gangoiiu system, and thus enables (he organism to right itself and resume its function. Dr. Chapman sustains his position by ciiing numerous cases iu which this treut ineni was successful. He slates that, in his long experience, he only knew of one case where drunkard had the diphtheria. He generally gives the alcohol in that form of whiskey. Love's Young Dream. UOW TBK TCltTLE DOVES ACT AT TABLE. The Breakfast Table says: A bridal couple, with more style about tnemthan a grass widow, honored the Iudiaua House willi their presence two or three days during the past week. They gave the dining-room a mighty tony look by marching in al meal lime arrayed in their new clolhes, with white gloves on, and when old man Rymna first saw them he took one square look and then sat down his coffee-pot aud went out into the kit chen and laugned until his eyeballs felt pointed. In that supreme uiomeul he fell that he was paid ten times over with compound interest for all the trials, vexa- lions and unpaid board bills encountered in his hotel experience since he left the old farm. 1 Yv'heu the dining room girl got her face straight enough to get behind their chairs and say - "Roast beef, roast pork, lamb, chicken or hsu P The bridegroom said, "Chicken an' fish," but the bride, with the charac terUiie presence of mind for which her sex bus ever been noted, interposed "Oh, no, ducky dear ; we can't take any o' that ; lor, don't you know, bidgy widgy, 'twould muss our gloves up! We'll have lo have something WO can eat wilh our knives and forks." i "So we will, buuny-blue-eyes I never thought o' lhat.
