The view from my window extended across the courtyard into the interior of the apartments occupied ty the family of the little Gabriel, who was fiitniliarly called Little 0ab" by all in the house. The father was a cutter in a tailor's shop; tbe mother, a sickly woman, and already white haired, though but 45 years old, Imsied herself with the housekeeping, and used up m that the remnant of her health. Other five children the three eldest had swarmed out from tbe home ; there rvmained only a girl of W, who was a dressmaker, and Little IJ-ab, who was a huuehoack. Horn of parents who had passed half of their lives in unwholesome workshops, or in dark and badly ventilated stores, Lit? !o Gab was the virtim of incur able rickets. His twisted spine brought his boulders nearly up to tho level of his ears; hi slender and feeble les bent under his warped and badly balanced chest; hocoold walk only when his form was held up in a peculiar ,ret. From this distorted body, wfirh Wrtfc'ed mit both front and back, TSe a head, too hi-hly developed in form, but with a f3ce of an exquisite delicacy and of a singularly piquant expression. Although he was 8 yen rs old, one would have thought him hardly .", judging from his poor stunted and twisto'l body; one would have called him 2o at ti'-ht of his thoughtful face, his projecting brew and his great dark brown eves, so sad and ?o precociously thoughtful. Father, mother and the big sister worshiped him. becaii-e of his loving manner and his extraordinarily lively intelligence, Tbe doc tor had forbidden them to let him do any work, but to distract him and to change his surroundings they took him to a school, where he Limited himself to listening gravely, yet retained all that ho beard. One evening, after school hours, I noticed him under the porch of the house, seated against the wait ing room of the janitor. His mother having gone out to make some purchase, and his sis ter not having yet returned from her shop. he had found tbe door of their rooms closed on his return, and, leaning against the wall. bis eyes turned eagerly towards the street, he was waiting with a thoughtful and pain fully resigned looked. While 1 questioned blm, his black eves threw over me long, observing and frightened glances. In the meantime tho big sister arrived, all out of breath. "Ah! my poor Gab," she cried. "I have kept you waiting! ou were growing im patient, humph r 'No," replied Gab in a calm voice, clear as a silver bell, "I was only saying to myself that perhaps vou did not want any more of me, and that yon would not return. I am so sick and so wearisome." "Ah, you bad boy," murmured tho young girLassho covered hira with kisses; theu. turning towards me with her eyes full of tears, '"he is so delicate," she added, "and so intelligent; he reasons out things just like a grownup person. "What a pity he has so little strength! The doctor says that if he can go this summer to Berck, tbe sea air and the sand baths would probably euro him. But Berck is far away, and then there is the expense. After all 1 am Roiug to try to make enough to carry him there." And the trave young girl worked from morning until night to lay up the needed amount. t?he wore herself out working over her sewing machine; she cut, laid together and sewed with hardly a moment of rest. Well into the night I heard tho sharp and hurried movement' of tbe machine, resem bling the abrupt rustling that grasshoppers make in tne fields ; beyond tbe curtains, il luminated by the Limp, I distinguished the hard working girl in outline, and 1 thought involuntarily oc Hood's terrible "8ong of the Shirt." Everybody in the house knew the story of Little Gab, and the wives of tho tenants will ingly intrusted work to the big stater They stopped the child in the halis.ou the landing, In the courtyard; they fondled him, they treated him with great tenderness, they sent him dainties, lie, always shy, recoiled from the earesse-.. and, more uneasy than diverted, meditated for a long time on tueso sudden marks of friendship. "Why does the lady on the third floor give me playthings," a-ked he thoughtfully of bis sister, 'Since she does not know me!" Then, after a moment's deliberation, be added, with a clearness of rierception that was heartrending localise of the glimpses it gave of the hard thinking to which this child's brain was subjec-ted : '"It is because I am a hunchback, no d-.ubt." Much work camu in and the little pile of savings in a remote corner of a bureau drawer grew steadily. July was close at hand, and they had nlrendy begun preparar tions for the di.'parture the purchase of a handsome leather trunk, the making of a suit for the child and little (Mb, wh was in a state of wonderment, talked to his schoolmates of nothing but his journey to the sea baths, when, at the eloventh hour, an un fortunate accident came to throw everything into disorder. The young wife of the gov ernment clerk on the fifth floor had ordered the dressmaker to newly trim her weuding gown and to make it over in the latest fash ion a gown tnat had cost a great deal of money, and that she wished to make serve for tho little dancing parties of the coming winter. One evening Gab, playing with the inkstand, let it slip from lu poor, thin fingers, and the ink unhappily trick led down over the satin of the skirt. They did not soold him alas! no; the sight of bis face, overwhelmed with dismay, gave too much pain. Tne big sister uttered a cry of terror; silently, nervously, she spooled the stuff and measured the extent of the disaster. The ink had outrageously stained over eight yards of the sating To tell tho accident to the cus tomer on the fifth floor and to excite her pity In favor of Little Gab was not to be thought of for a moment; in the first place, the gov ernment clerk wife was not rich, and her wedding dress constituted her only supply for her days of frivolity and of ceremony; then the dressmaker was proud and did not care to acquaint the house with the calami ties of her family. The mot advisable and dignified wav wai to run to the Bon Moreno and try to match tho stuff. Eight yards at fifteen francs camo to U!0 francs a formida ble breach in the money box and the savings for the journey I Well, it was done now, and the sea baths must be given up for this year. The dressmaker kissed Little Gab and again set herself to work. In the winter that followed they strug gled hard in Little Gab's household. The autumn had been rainy and Gab's health had felt tbe effect of it His bones ached, be had feverish disturbances and headaches. Tho doctor, Bounding the boy'a lungs, shook his head and insisted again on their sending the child to Berck immediately on the re turn of the pleasant weather. This time it was settled that he should go; cost what it might, they would set out for the sea hatha about the last of May ; and the sewing ma chine began again in still greater hurry its grasshopper rattle, and the evenings of y work were extended still farther into the night They bought for Little Gab a book In which there were pictures only of the sea views of harbors with their forests of masts set along tbe piers, steep crags washed by foamy waves, Ashing boats, scattered apart, in the otlia, like a flock of white winged birds. The child talked of nothing but the sea; he saw it in bis dreams, and sometimes even in full daylight, through the gray fog which filled the inside yard, he had unhealthy delusions of shores beaten by the waves, and great watery spaces, crossed by ships with distended sails. bometimes he toon from tbe mantelpiece a large shell; he placed it against bis ear, and with his neck sunk into his shoulders, and with thoughtful eyes, be listened for hours to this roar of the tea, which seemed to come from far, far away through the shed. The wiuter was exceptionally damp and cold, and 1 did not again encounter Little Gab under tbe porch. The doctor had ex pressly forbidden them to let him- go out From time to time 1 saw him at the window, One of the curtains of which was .raised. rr sad ana downcast, stared Into vfc. 2"!.?! the clear window glass hi. Sto fingers traced vague form of ships. Then suddenly his glance would be fixed on tbe casement where I was making my obser vation, and, feeling that he was watched, with a timid gesture he would draw down the muslin curtain. Towards the middle of March I no longer saw him near the window pane. His bones made him suffer more and more, his too feeble legs could no longer carry him, and bis headaches were redoubled. He now passed whole days lying on his little bed, turning over for the hundredth time the leavea of tbe picture book where were seen the sea and the big ships with their white Bails. He had not given up tbe idea of his journey. "When will we gof he asked of his sister; and when the latter had explained to him that they must wait for fine weather. he replied in his sharp, thin voice, "It is Decause i am in a hurry ; l want to get well quickly, very quickly, so as not to see you cry any more." And he began to repeat to uimseif tbe names of tbe towns through which they would pass. He already knew tbem by heart--Chantilly, then Clermont, Amiens, Abbeville and at lost the sea. "Once that we are yonder," said he, "I am sure that my bones will not pain me any more." While waiting he wished to have tbe big pink shell from the mantelpiece by him, and, his ear placed against its pearly valves, he listened attentively to the distant noise of this sea that should deliver him from all his sufferings. Towards Easter I heard no longer the dull rumbling of the sewing machine. There was no more working in the little home, and yet a light from a lamp gilding one of the windows well into the night, showed that they were always watching there near the bed of tbe sick child. "He is much worse," murmured the porter's wife, pressing in stinctively against her skirts a chubby little boy ; "be has not long to live, Tbe poor soul it will be a release!'' One mornimr I passed under the porch a little coffin carried by two undertaker's men and followed by the family. It was Little Gab, who was at last setting out on his jour ney towards the unfathomable sea of the un known. Translated from the French for The Boston Transcript ONE OF NATURE'S LAWS. COMPENSATION FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER PHYSICAL IMPAIRMENTS. SNAKE STORY. One May Lire a Loos; Time with Heart Disease One Lang May Do the Work of Two for Many Years Nature's Jus tice. Nature has imposed upon the world of life her storms, earthquakes, etc, which are called "sublime manifestations of her su preme power." She has exposed her children to accidents, which through no effort of tbeir own can they escape. She has also fixed penalties for voluntary transgression and violation of her laws. But, beyond that, in her infinite mercy, she has established a law of compensation for all unfortunates who suffer, and nowhere else is its application more clearly evident than m the victims of physical impairments. She has provided that, within certain limits, if any part of the system or function of man 'becomes de ranged or disabled unable to do its work properly other parts, through their reserve power, shall do additional work, and so com pensate for the infirmity. Take, for instance, the heart When dis ease, say of tbe valves, first begins to show itself, at once other changes in that organ commence to obviate, in a great measure, tbe imperfection. In using a pump, if the valves are sound, less effort is required by us than if they are imperfect, and allow some of the water to fall back into the well. Inasmuch as they are inefficient, jnst so much harder we must work and take so many more strokes of the pump, if we would keep up the same flow of water which we could raise if the valves were In perfect condition. So it is when the valves of the heart do not close ti. Admiral Semmes and Ah Sin. I remember an amusing anecdote, showing tho business quickness of "Ah Sin," told me by the late Sir Whampoa, a rich Chinaman of Singapore, who was knighted by Queen V ictoria for his services to tho British navy. Singapore, it will be remembered, was a fa vorite stopping place for Admiral Bern mas and the Alabama. Whampoa's business was that of a naval contractor, and he generally supplied Semmes with stores, and thus the two men got acquainted. Semmes was very quick at figures, and was proud of his gift in that line. Now the Chinese in ail their cal culations use a machine called an abacus, which resembles an old fashioned multipli cation table on wires. It is a clumsy instru ment to look at, but is wonderfully expedi tious in the hands of an expert. As the two men were reckoning up their accounts, semmes exclaimed impatiently, "Whampoa, why do you persist in using that stupid abacus r The Chinaman replied by laying a wager that Semmes could propose any mathematical problem he chose, each to work it out his own way, and that he ( w hampoai would get the right answer first "Done I" cried Semmes. The problem was given, and Semmes began to scribble and figure, while the old Chinaman's fingers rattled over his abacus. In an incredibly short time Whampoa stopped and declared the answer. Semmes looked up astonished, then, tearing up his paper, he exclaimed, in tones of the deepest disgust, "Beaten, by. and by a Chinaman!'1 Semmes was not the only smart "white man" that has had to ad mit the same fact Once a V eek. The Club House Waiter. The man . ho waits on the table at club houses and restaurants often becomes pos- sesssed of secrets of the most sensational char acter. A reputable waiter, and most of them claim to be reputable, will never retail his news. The fact is that little or no attention is paid, by those he serves, to the accomodat ing juggler of plates. But, while always polite, the waiter keeps his ears wide open and his eyes, too. How many sensational stories he could tell I In my early experi ence I used to be greatly shocked when a gay young fellow would come in with a woman that I knew to be another man's wife knew her husband, you see. They would enter a private dining room and order wine, and while I was industriously serving tbem such things would be done and said that would surely bring about a shooting match, or at least a divorce, if they had ever become known to the woman's doting husband. I once knew a fellow in our business, who was employed in a club house in Chicago, to wait unon a certain railroad clique when they held their private conferences. What did the fellow do but sell "tips" that be picked up from tbe conversation of tbe rail road men to the brokers. He made some money for himself and a great deal more for the brokers, and the railroad men, to this day, have never found out why the results of their conferences did not meet with the full est suef-pss that, it appeared, tbey must have iiad.

It wv in tbe Indian Grove, where children and nursemaids abounded. A particularly pretty maid, in a white cap and apron, was taking a five cent ride on one of the donkeys kept for rent to the ohildren. She was as pretty at a picture, and her position made her niquante. "That nurse girl is a sort of governess for some children for a friend of mine," the matter of fact man continued.

For such condition as this nature has provided. She causes the walls of tbe heart to grow thicker, and hence makes that organ more powerful By thus compensating for the valvular dis ease, the general condition of the person may for a long time be but little changed. He may even enjoy comparatively good health for years, and his infirmity only be discov ered by accident This law of compewation is clearly evi dent in what are called hunchbacks. As a rule, they are so frail looking one would not expect them to be able to fight severe dis ease, and yet they have a resistant and reac tive power which is simply wonderful. Strong, robust children taken down with disease often succumb when these deformed unfortunates, prostrated with an attack of the same and of equally severe type, recover. Where there are two like organs in the body, if one is injured the other takes on a greater activity and strength, and assumes additional burden. If one lung is crippled by an accident, in time the other may be so changed it will do very well the work de signed for both. Cases are not infrequent where one-kidney has become absolutely use less, and has even been removed, and yet the person suffered little or none, apparentlv, from Its loss. This law of compensation the physician and surgeon "meets at every turn" as he labors for his patients. It is one on which he must rely much. VV e have said that perfection of health is purely ideal; that it never actually exists. The average man is far from the enjoyment of perfect health. Were human bodies transparent, there would be revealed abnormalities in all, and even in some of those apparently fairly well there would be found diseases which it would seem must soon prove fatal, and yet the victims of tbem resist death for years. It is a popular belief that if the lungs once become even in a slight degree affected, con sumption is sure to result, and yet it is safe to say that there is scarcely a person living who has perfectly healthy lungs. early all, if not all, have some tune or other during their lives suffered from trouble in those important organs, which have healed and become perfectly sound again. The extent to which the liver maybe diseased, and yet the general health remain fairly good, is something to marvel at For instance, cir rhosis of the liver, or, as it is sometimes called, "gin liver," is a degenerative change in that organ, which, if not arrested, which Is rarely possible, ultimately destroys it and life. Tbe disease is usual Iv very far ad vanced before the victim fully realizes that he is failing in health. The other organs in the svstem do the liver's work, and its par tial loss Is scarcely felt Diseases of the stomach, as a rule, soon make themselves apparent, and yet some remain concealed, or their presence is merely suspected, for years. Physicians who are employed as examiners for insurance companies, endowment socie- end tbe like will testifv that diseases of the kidneys as Bright's diseaseare in very many cases first disclosed by their analvsis, and while the victims believe themselves to be to good health, never having had a symp tom which led them to even suspect that dread complaint And so we might go on, calling attention to each organ of tbe body separately, and telling how little evidence of even serious impairment is sometimes offered to the vic tim. Were this condition of things changed, did nature less faithfully observe her law of compensation and conceal existing innrmi ties, it might be better for some, but certainly not for others. ' W here ignorance is bliss, etc It is sometimes well that we should not know our weaknesses. If we were the victim of an incurable disorder many of us would prefer to live on in ignorance until the fact dawned upon us. There are but few diseases which, if recog nized early and proper treatment is applied, cannot be permanently arrested, if not wholly cured. None is more dreaded than consumption ; yet that disease popularly supposed to be fatal can positively be cured if taken in time. Those who do die of it rarely consult a physician until too late,' being kept back from doing so through fear of being "told the worst;" they prefer tbe condition of doubt to that of a grave cer tainty. One who is deaf, and, still more so, one blind, excites intense pity in all. Still, specialists in diseases of the ear and eye will testify that tn almost all their incurable the victims are long sufferers before they seek relict Truly, "procrastination Is the thief of time," and when health is threatened there are but few who do not give evidence that this grievous fault for once, at least, is theirs. As we have said, the average man is com pelled to travel through life in a condition of health far below the perfect standard. The deviations tbe ailments are not only in very many instances self inflicted, but they can, in a great measure, be overcome. The one fault lies deep. Tbe knowledge of how to live, to husband our forces, and to keep ourselves near tho ideal state perfection of health should be engrafted into our natures in early youth; it should be among the first lessons taught us. We should realize from the first that we cannot wrong ourselves by vicious Indulgence without being obliged to offer therefor. Her "books are well kept," perfect justice is done all, and we must meet and satisfy every charge which nature makes against us. Boston Herald. A Beptlle a Unique as the Sea Serpent, The Porpoise Snake. I, alone, ons day in Jnne, was fishing on the banks of the bayou Yucatan, under the shade of an oak, in north Louisiana, having left my sailboat several hundred yards from me, in order to escape tbe hot sun. I had hardly see ted myself conveniently when a dark object was seen approaching on the surface of the water. At first I thought It was an alligator, but on closer observation discovered it to be an enormous creeping ser pent When this huge monster was within a few yards of the spot where 1 was seated I gathered some stones about the size of goose eggs and struck him eleven times, and. strange to relate, the blows did not appear to worry him to any great degree, as he never once left the surface of the water, but continued unconcernedly at a slow pace up stream. I immediately left my rod and reel and hastily scampered to my boat It was only a question of several minutes before I was in midstream in hot pursuit of this object, which was soon overtaken. When within close proximity I noticed it to be blind and apparently harmless. Fearing, however, an attack, I seized my rifle, and, taking aim at its head, fired. The bullet lodged in the col lar boue and broke his neck. There was a slight movement of the tail, a little slashing of the water, and all was over, the monster floating down stream. Curious to learn the species of this peculiar reptile, a made a lasso from a stout rope which I bad in my boat and threw it around its body, thus enabling me to tow it ashore. A critical examination developed the fact tht I had captured a monster snake never before seen by me. It had a head resembling a long funnel shaped bom, the body being similar to small kegs joined together. What made masters more queer, each keg had a bungbole (some of the bungs being on top and some on the sides). Hauling the tad on the bank (whih was by no means an easy task), out of curiosity to learn the contents of the kegs, I opened one of the bungholes by means of a jackknife, and found it to contain a very fine purified oiL Just at this jencture my uncle, who is an old fisherman and has been a member of tbe city council, came up, and the minute his eyes fell on the captive, with frantic gesticu lations he exclaimed tnat 1 had captured a valuable porpoise snake, seldom seen in these waters. The oil in the kegs I found to be pure, un adulterated porpoise oil. I had twelve forty- nine gallon oil barrels sent to the bank and filled them all The oil was shipped to the most extensive watch making establishment in this countrv, and brought a handsome sum. By way of explanation, I would say that this snake cbtains the oil by plunging its sharp head into the side of the porpoise and arains every drop of oil from its body. Ihe snake had fifty -three kegs and was sixty-nine feet long. 1 still have possession of the kegs and bungs (tbe head having decayed), which I prize. anouid any one doubt the veraotv of this statement, I cau exhibit the kegs and bungs.

A gentleman tells me that he has seen one of the most extraordinary pieces of executive dispatch in his life, "I was coming down the Hudson River road," he said, "two or three days ago, when tbe train was stopped by a wreck near Hudson, A freight train had been thrown off the track. The engine was lying imbedded in a hols, one car was ly ing across the track; another had lost its trucks and was flat on the track, and the tender of tbe locomotive was also deeply im bedded. We bad waited there an hour and a half or two hours, and twentv trains had been stopped. They had yanked one of the cars up on jack screws, as if to run trucks under it, and aen get it out of the wav. It looked as if we were going to stav until night, and we nerran to think about finding a steamboat or buggy or something to got on to New 1 ork, when all at once an engine and wreck ing car heaved m sight Before the engine had eoine to a stop we could hear the roadmaster's voice ring out, giving his orders before he had seen thesitr uation. He seemed to be as familiar with everything on tbe spot as if he had been there all night There was an engine off at some distance, but doing nothing. He oilled out to the engineer to come up and make fast to the buried locomotive. In half a minute the en giue was attached and pulling to get the other out of the hole, and at the second effort the great mass of iron came up suddenly, and was hauled out or the road. Pass that rope over tbe ton of that car. and make fast to tbe tree younder, he cried. it was done. "Now 500 of you lay hold of that rope," he shouted. The entire little army, under the inspiration of that voice, lay hold of the rope, using the tree for purchase, and they pulled t he car across the track square and out of the way by main strength. "Come on here with that engine" he cries again, "make fast to this truck." W ith an other tremendous pull the whole thing came out of the ground like a tree bv the roots. and was rushed off. "Now start that first train," cried the man. In less than two min utes from the time of his arrival, what looked to be a week's job was out of the way, and the passengers went on.

'TU come up to the Metropoli tan this afternoon and see you." "Do come up," said my friend, hie eye twinkling with western humor as he spoke. "1 have jnst won a large prize in the Louisiana lottery, and would like to have you go with me and identify me at tbe Ne-v York office of the concern."

By the Castner process some new works at Oldbury expect to produce 1.500 pounds of sodium daily, from which a ton and half of aluminium can be produced a week. This process reduces the cost of aluminium from forty shillings per pound to fifteen shillings or less, or from 5,000 to 1,600 per ton. New York Hun. A Child's Solo In Churrh. An interesting incident was the first ap- pearanoa in public of a yonng singer who holds a responsible position as soprano in one of tbe leading choirs of the city. Before the young lady was more than Ji or 4 y?ar old she accompanied her mother to cuurch, and to her the sincing was bv far the most im portant part of the service. The child's voice was pleasiug, b?ing much admiral by those of the congregation who heard her. On one occasion tbe minister announced the hymn which is nsua.ly sung to the tune "Green fielt!." The little singer felt that she was familiar with this tune and could do justice to the hymn. As the first stanza was sung the child's voice ascended above the others, and many in the congregation stopped singing to listen to the young singer. When the second stanza was begun tho fe w who took up tbe air with the cUoir stopped singing, and as the choir continued with the regular words of the hymn the child took up a solo, which was heard all over the little church. In clear tones she sang "Go Tell Aunt Nabby," etc., a long adapted to "Greenfield," the familiar Mine, Troy Times.
