Some years ago, when marriage licenses ' had to bo paid for. the Marvlanders nd Virginians rode across tbe narrow frontier in the valley and were married for nothing in Pennsylvania, Of course they gave some thing to the preacher for his trouble. The consequence was that all the preachers on the Maryland side of the line became as lean geese, and the preachers across the line in Pennsylvania grew as fat as turkey gobblers. But there was one preacher near Waynes boro who did not grow fat Garrick Howton, who did the largest business, became leaner and loarnT the faster he married people. He as too mean, the people said, to enjoy life like a good Methodist itinerant or a rubicund chicken coops were agitated at his approach. No little pigs squealed and got under their anxious mammas when Gar rick leaned over the sky anil surveyed them. Nobody knew just what sect or church Garnck belonged to there where everybody was his own theologian. He called his church Tb 7iwWT. was tbo only one of it-the bishop indeed except his son, Weasley Howton, whom he called "the deacon." The church building did not exist, though branches of The Zionskite bodv were said to be 'furder -west" by both the bishop and the deacon. Inquisitive people hinted that there never onld have been as many as two Eionskites eept for the fat marriage fees which were to be had along Mason and Dixon's line; and that Bishop Garrick Howton only ordained 8011 "easley into tbe priesthood reluct- tly that he miht orrftainnwllv tol-oo enma "ation himself and not miss any runaway jplea wbioh should arrive between mid- ar ut 'tea morning. All people far or near understood that the Howtons would marry anybody, the delivery of the certincate being conditional on the payment of the fee; end pains were taken to impress strangers that in the Zionskites dis cipline the certificate was a part of the cere mony itsoir. A story was started and grew that old Sowton married children for the sake of his lees. This story came up from sorrowing and jroken nearxea parents in V irginia and from the rich manors and hamlets of Freder ick in Maryland. Too Pennsylvanians never vermea tneso reports because it was none of their business. That was the golden age, when the people of every state did to the people of every other state just what thoy pleased, and the boundary lino made outrage justice or sim plicity criminal. As time advanced Bishop Howton became a widower, and ms mind was set on marry ing again. It may have been the example of marrying children under age, torn from their parents by their own disobedient impulses or the powerful sinister influence of man, or it may have been tho childish beauty of Eunice Kowtoii, his distant relative, which doomed her to become tbe bishop's wife when she should bo old en"u;rh to receive his orders and not bring the laws of Pennsylvania down upon ht.s heed. The bishop bided his time. Eunice was hardly 15, a slender, gray eved blonde, wbost fe.t, touch the ground as they would, turned into lines of grace, and music seemed to be playing as she walked or moved, to siv?h harmonies did she bend; while in the action of her head upon her delicate neck and even in the motion of her lips there ap peared to oe violin music whistled by her pint as the upland zephys played upon it and her heart desired to dasce. Tbe country people s:iid that this was be cause her mother had been an actress and a dancer. Somewhere back in the ondisceraed past and vau'ueness or a l.irre wond it was said that Bishop Howton had been a show man ager and that his orphan counn had married a trench uanccrwho was in his strolling company. This cousin had been left to Garrick, who had kept him down and nearly starved him, repressing bis spirits by an avarice and su perstition which lav across each other, and finally retired Gflrrtek from the show busi ness a ""c: lete failure, while his ward, set free b, matrimony, made a nice little for tune k;e:ing a dancing academv with his wife. When the parents died something of the husband's inherited tenets caused him to re pent, though ho had never done anything bad, and iri the weakness of dying be gave his child to his relative to be her trustee and the trustee ci a respectable little fortune. The poor dimcm teacher thought the word "bishop ' covered a regenerate heart. The bishop was merely a capitalist in mar riage fees. This is consid-rd reasonable humility. Some of the schoolboys called him Old Yokfi-noki, because he yoked so many couples. What education he had picked up avarice and illiterate associations had chased out of his head; like an oid country Dutchman, he could spell joists for his barn joyce and talk about the breechman on his horse when he meant breeching. As time advanced Gurriek grew deeply In love with Eunice, and -orgot to givespiritual restraint to his eon, 'At seventeen sharp," old Garrick Howton often repeated to himself, looking at Eunice with the threefold passions of love, avarice and superstition. Often when an old man falls in love it seems to him like holiness, when it is only foolishness. In that way Garrick threw himself back into his natural state before be became an avaricious scoundrel, or a self frightened hypocrite. Ha got to believing in the reli gion he practiced upon. He feared night solitude and ghosts. He believed that his monstrous passion was a sacrifice on his part tor the sake of securing Eunice's souL "1 should be tb devil's prize without her," mused Garrick Howton. '-The children j have tied in wedlocks of despair, the un formed souls I have manacled to selfish fiends, the headstrong schoolgirls I have made the legal slaves of hideous skinflints, and who have in a few months awaked to everlasting repentance and horror, would troop into my lonely home among these mountains and drive me crazy with their curses, i should go madl But Eunice, Eu nice, she will guard my door and warm my "heart and bring other angels like her from heaven to my relief and comfort." It was piaiu that tbe hypocritical old ttfchop was becoming slightly hysterical. Weasley Howton bad been notified by his father that he mus go west and establish his own congregation of the peculiar skit Zion He was sent to the garret to study disci pline and thoroughly contemplate toe Scrip tures. One day Etm!e stole up Into the garret, while the bishop was marrying a one eyed man or w to a maid of IB and she met a dif ferent scene there from tlie penance and prayer she bad expected. Weasley was ringed out In a suit of theat rical clothes taken frm Eunice's parents' trunks, and was executing a wild and fantas tic jig. The bishop had told Eunice that in the aid tmnks was the devil's wardrobe. The young people locked tbe door and examined tne wardrobe thoroughly. What places are garrets for rain and lovel now it drops upon tbe roof! How it goes pit-a-pat in tbe hoartf How the heart is raining suddenly through tbe eves and the roof is beating witb the palpitations of the wind! Old men seldom go to garrets. Bad old men like Uarrick Howton never da liext week Weasley Howton was to start for Indiana, and be an apostle on the Wabash. His trunk wsh packed and his ticket for the stage was to bo paid for over the great Na tional road from Hagerstown to the far west "Fifty dollars fare!" exclaimed the bishop, ma m waiKea tne upir porch ; "what a sum of money! But the next week it shall be made up out of Eunice's fortune, which will then be mine, with her fadeless beauty, till death do us part. The rascal I" As be looked, thera camo a cloud of dust up the Ulstersburg road from the south, where somebody was driving hard some body in a desperate hurry. "it looks like a runaway couple," exclaimed Garrick Howton, reaching for hiaPv0n-i. Bat the shade of tbe North mountains, where tbe sun was going down, put a belt of black nop uponjthe landscape, k.iuo mponjs tptai ecTTpse. When libe sound of the wheals came to the door and Garrick heard the knock, he descended and found a strange man in the parlor, which had no lights, "Bare," the stranger said, "I have re bon aire to say zat I am in leave. But ze lady is too leetle; she have not ze grand age. It will be ail za same; because she loaves me and her fathair have so much shame he rtevair will say nothing. I give you fifty dollaire to make me her husband at once, arel" "Fifty dollars!" the bishop's avaricious heart responded. "It is Weasley's whole fare. The good demon must have sent this mas here." Then the business piety returning, the bishop spoke aloud and most unctuously: "What are the names of the parties! Mar riage, my brother, the apostle savs, is honor able in all Hebrews xiii, 4 I see not that it may not be honorable in thee." co names are on certificates we have filled. Ze foe I pay you la extraordinaire. monsieur. For ze fifty dollaire we make two demands: Au premiere, zat you marry ze bride veiled! Au second, zat you sign two certificates for us, to protect ze lady and moi meine. "Tbe age of the bride T asked Garrick Howton. "What mattair zat? You have made ze wife at fourteen many a time. My bride is sixteen, saire. Come, ze money I Here is ze money." He felt the bank bill in his hand and it dried up bis compunctions of heart; he felt a quill put in bis fingers and the stranger, with something like a fusee, made a flame that contained brimstone and soemed yellow and blue. "Eternally be mine, as zis pa pair you sign," the strange man exclaimed "I mean ze lady ohud, ze lady, parbleu." The voice had a deep sepulchral tone in it, and by the foreboding flame Garrick saw a person wnose loreneaa was au in patches. with French mustaches under his nose and blackened eyebrows drawn nearly through the temples to the edge of a colorless, inky wig. "You must give me some name," spoke the bishop as ho signed, although I cannot read by such a light.1 "I am ze Marquis Bellsbulb." "Bring in the lady 1" Low laughter seemed to be circling arctmd the apartment as the uniting words were said by the bishop's faltering and fatigued tongue. Loud laughter broke from the carriage win dows as the scoundrel drovo away. "Here, Weasleyl Eunice! Lights! Lights!" exclaimed old Garrick Howton. "I have got my last marriage fee." No voice replied; tho dark mountains through the windows showed bridal wreaths of stars upon their forbidding brows, like the awful presence of the marquis who had but now departed with cMldhood's purity in his false black eyes and wig. The bishop took fire and lighted a candle. He saw a paper lying upon the floor with his signature to it He read with horror that he acknowledged the sale of his soul to Beelzebub for a thousand years. "Ha! ha!" he cried, "Satan has dropped the contract he entrapped me to sign. To the fire to the fire with it!" A voice seemed to sound from the garret on the wailing of the wind. "You signed two such certificates. You have married Eunice to the devil." "Father," cried Y easier Howton next morning, 'Eunice is jiot to be found. Will you forgive her i she nas married if she has married me!" Bishop Howton lay on the floor dead George Alfred Townsend in Baltimore Home Journal. Court of the Afghan Ameer. The Afghan ameer is his own high court, and bis procedure is very promnt and simple. A postmaster being reported for remissness in the delivery of letters was beaten regu larly for three days. This was a very light punishment 1 he order in some cases is "cut ofl his nose," in others "cut off his ears," and the sentence is earned out without any need less delay. One night flftveu individuals were executed, some of them having their throats cut, Aigban fashion, as they lay in their graves. Others were blown from guns. These unlucky people seemed to have mis calculated in certain recent political move ments which did not turn out quite as they expected. One morning a married woman and her lover were brought before his high ness by the enraged husband. The tears and prayers of the good looking woman for a moment softened tbe ameer, and ho said he wculd forgive tbe woman, but moved by a sense of the fitness of tilings he bunded her and the lover over to the husband, who slew them both as tbey bad pased the city gate, Peonle knew what was suing to happen, and flocked out to see tbetwoainners slaughtered.

Chilly surroundings contract the eyes with tbe rest of tbe flesh and injure ex pression. Weak eyes and disordered stomach or kid neys exist together, and these must be set right before the eyes are good. The cool douche across the loins and constant use of green parsley are the best remedies. A jet of weak salt water a teaspoonful of salt to a half pint of water playing on the eyelid or spraying the closed eye with a vaporizer, strengthens and enlarges the eye. Holding the eyelids apart at the corners with thumb and finger will enlarge the size of the eye in time, being careful not to fret or inflame it.

"They have a strange new kind of gas meter in Paris,n remarked Gen. Bickeor looper. "What is it liker "It is somewhat on the principle of these chewing gum boxes at tho centennial, where you drop a nickel in the slit and a stick of gum is measured out to you. In this meter you drop a certain number of pennies in a box and then that amount of gas is at your aervice. If you want more gas another sou must go into tbe box." "That is a eood idea." "Yes, it U an odd trick. People are so economical in France and so many of them live from hand to mouth that 1 suppose that such a meter just fills the bid. There is such a large, floating population that if the gas companies were not thus paid day by day for the illumination furnished they might find it hard to find any one at the end of a month to present with a bill."

To explain: There it no telling for what and how soon a bottle is to be used again after being onoe used. The bottle when new from the glassworks was flded with Deer, or with medicine, or with wine, or with oxalic acid, or with tooth powder, or with anytning else out of an endless list Well, it was used to keep its contents till emptied. That, the reformers contend, ought to de finitely end the days of usefulness of that particular bottla It ought to be broken and crushed into smithereens. But it isn't We are living in a very utilitarian age, and in stead of breaking a bottle that has once been used, it is used over and over again for all sorts oi things, and in all sorts of nooses, ! nntu alter, perhaps, years and years of ser-1 vice, it acciuently breaks, and is done with. 1 No harm in that, you say I Ah, but there is. The botttle was filled with exquisite perfume when it was new. It is thrown into the ash barrel when empty. An hour later it is picked up by tbe garbage fiend, and sold the same day to the junk dealer. He sells it next day to the druggist The druggist fills it with medicine and properly labels it, and sends it into the sick room of a woman lying at the point of death with ty phoid fever. On the day of her funeral that bottlo forms once more part of a heap of household refuse. It goes on traveling from boudoir to cellar, from closet to dung heap, from junk dealer to dago shop--on and on in an endless chase, from mouth to mouth and hand to hand, from sick to healthy and from filthy to finical, spreading contami nation on its road. Ho you like the idea Is it safe! Is it clean! Is it decent! That is the contention. As a matter of fact, the cry has been started by the bottle manufacturer, who want to create a wider market for their goods. Their argument is: "What do yon save by saving bottlesi You save the brewer or the distiller a cent or a cent and a half a bottle, being the difference in price between old and new bottles, but that's alt The consumer saves nothing." Chicago Herald. A Very Unsatisfactory Experiment. A professor in an Eastern colleee bad in his botany class a young Japanese, who was very much interested in the science. One day the professor was lecturing on the sub ject of germination, and the food matter of the plant, and toid the class that if they mixed flour and water, the water poured off would be white whilo the sediment remain ing was brown and glutinous, th"i the water tested with iodine would turn blue, pro vine: that it contained starch, and he asked the Japanese student, Issa Tetauka, to perform the experiment before the class at the next recitation. The day following, however, Issa came to the class room with a very troubled expres sion on his face and said that the experiment was not satisfactory. When the nrofessor investigated the matter be was amused to find that the Japanese had misunderstood him, and in place-of "some flour' had taken "somo flower viz., a bunch of geraniums squeezed them up in the water, and poured m locime. then beinsE verv much dis appointed because tbe water did not turn blue.

Writing on "Dress and Economy " Mrs. Henry Reeve gives us some verv remarkable "facts and figures and other data for tho construction of a scale of expenditure and of ratio to income of the cost of clothes. " The writer has evidently been at much pains to collect these "'facts," etc., from various in formants, and though these latter often pre fer to give the house rent thoy pay rather than the income tbey possess, their informa tion is surprising enough. One lady, win has a "small income of S00 a vear," finds 30 enougo for h-T dress. Another who. with her husband, enjoys au income of 1.500 no children spends only 50 on her aress, while her husband s averages 26 10s. per annum. Again, a rrofessional man with ".'.000 a year to spend, 'gives his two daugh ters 40 a year for dress, and a "gentleman who shoots, plays tennis, mixes m the society in town and country, and travels on the continent,' spends only 23 a year on bis raiment Finally, an inquiry among twenty-eight bachelors (including members of parliament, civil : vants, barristers and country squires) shows a maximum expendi ture of 34 and a minimum of 14, or averaee of 2o a year, spent on dress.

Since that time any one accussd of commit ting the one or abetting the other has been prosecuted as a murderer. Sti was more easily put down than infanticide. Tbe in terior of tbe zanana is so private that crimes are sometimes committed there that never come to light. Indeed, child murder is un doubtedly perpetrated often at the present day. Two other of the bonds fastened upon Hindu women by a corrupt priesthood are loosening and will son fall off. viz., infant marriage and perpetual widowhood. Hindu women advance in education and gen eral intelligence they naturally begin to un derstand tbeir own rights and privileges, and are not so easily pursuaded or coerced as heretofore. This is, of course, the inev itable result of education, which priests and sages foresaw, and which tbey desired to avert by keeping them in the strictest ig norance, lira. R. J.

Effects of the BCesmerlo Gaze of Her Lns trous Black Eyes Methods of Subduing an Anaconda Big Snakes Troublesome to Keep. The snake charming woman was seated on a chair and a big anaconda was wound once around her waist, the rest of its length lying loose in bar lap. In her right hand she field the snake's ugly head. She was a brunette and handsome enough to charm anything. The reporter murmured something to that effect. "Yes, you had better speak low when you pay me compliments," she replied, her eyes twinkling mischievously, "for the giant over there is my husband. He's awfully jealous, and when he gets mad he weighs ten times as much as he does now." Ah, there," said a little dude disposed to be facetious; "is that a-aw-a worm, doncher know?" No, it's a-aw-a masher, d-cher know, would you like to try how it v --aw-mashP i responded Mrs. Smith, alias "Madame Jean- ette De La," etc, with excellent mimicry. The dude dropped his eveglass and became 1 deeply interested in the Egyptian mummy. . 1 he snake began to stir its coils in the wo man's lap. '"Don't speak, please," she said earnestly. She moved the hand which held thesnake's head until the head was pointing straight at her face. She then fastened her lustrous black eves on the two small, treacherous eves of the snake. Her eyes seemed to expand and tho snake's to get smaller. Superb, queenly, she looked; her features and whole beuring seemingly expressing intense mental effort. The snake appeared, at first, to avoid her ga2e; then it ceased stirring and its head drooped, limp and listless in her hand. "Now you may speak," she said. "That was very pretty." HO HfHBCQ ABOUT IT. tlOh, indeed, there -was no fake about that If I hadn't mastered tbe snake he would have whipped his tail intc that third loop be was forming and squeezed me until my bones cracked unless somebody came to my assistance and cut him in two. A bear can't hug tighter than an anaconda can squeeze. This is only the third time that I have performed with this snake, and he is disposed to be ugly unless I look after him. bile I was chatting mv eves went off him. and 1 suppose he felt there was an oppor tunity to exercise what he regarded asms legitimate business, lou observe that I always hold tbe snake by the head, so that 1 can compel it to look me in the face. Then when I get my eyes on it I can subdue it." Howf Ah, that's more than I can tell you. What causes the bird or tbe mouse that I feed to the snake to become powerless when the snake fastens its eyes on it? What is it that enables one man to mesmerize another! All I know is that I look at tbe snake's eves and will it, with all my might, to yield to ma v hen 1 do that 1 seem to feel something going out from me electricity magnetism l dont know what. I feel afterward as though I had engaged in a physical struggle with somethiug and conquered. There's where the pleasure comes in. You may not bebeve it, but when I concentrate mv will to subdue that snake the excitement is in tensethe enjoyment exquisite, I suppose it is something like what a soldier feels when the music plays as he marches to battle." "How do you acquire that power f "It isn't acquired; it's born. Many people possess that power, undoubtedly, who don't know of it. Quite accidentally I found that I bad it I never had that fear of snakes that most people have. TDE MYSTERIOUS POWER. "TThen quite a girl I noticed some children running from a garter sike. What pos sessed me to do it I don't know, but I picked it up, fastened my eyes on its eyes and found myself willing it to submit. Then it fell into a sort of stupor, and I found that I could do with it what I liked. This discovery that I could subdue the snake so that it became en tirely passive in my hands pleased me. I be gan to experiment with other and larger snakes, always selecting, of course, snakes that are not venomous. Then when circum stances took a turn so that I bad to ear i7 ray own living I took to the business. It pays a good deal better than sewing or school teach ing or selling dry goods." "How do you first go to work with an ana conda r "I first give it a bath of warm milk. This it seems to enjoy hugely, and is soothed by it and pete JnBfrtud- Then I try to get it in a position whpre I can fasten my eves on its eyes. This often requires a great deal of pa tience, for tbe snake tries to avoid beseem ing to feel that it means a contest in which it will get worsted. But the opportunity comes at last, and when the snake droops its bead listlessly I know that I have charmed it and can safely put my hand on it. The next operation is easier and the snake is more quickly rendered passive With each opera tion it becomes more docile until I can per form with it in public. But always one has to lie careful, for tho snake is liable at any time to try squeezing. You can tell by the way it moves its coils when it is going to do that, and can then charm it or mesmerise it until it is passive; but if you are frightened and get bewildered you can't exercise any control over the snake, and the snake will actually try to charm you. I have had one or two narrow escapes through carelessness. The worst place to have a snake is around your neck, because it takes very little squeez ing there to make you feel exceedingly un comfortable. "Are the anacondas troublesome to keepP "I should say so; they require a great deal more care than a baby. Tbey are so liable to catch cold when confined. You have to thrnw warm blankets over them and exercise all sorts of care to keep them properly warm. Then they are mighty particular what tbey eat The only things that seem to thoroughly agree with them are white mice and guinea pigs, chickens and squabs, and these have to be given to tbem aiive. The snake doesn't seem to enjoy eating unless it can first charm the animal or bird. I have never found it possible to keep one long, and they are ex pensive to buy. New York Tribune.

How the Indian Treats an Injury Old Time Methods, The savage is emphatically the child of nature. He lives close to nature; hit only education is gained in nature's school. When the Indian receives an injury, he does not seek a cure in mineral poisons, but binds on the simple leaf, administers tbe herbal tea, and, with nature's aid, comes natural recovery. Our rugged ancestors who pierced the wilderness, built their uncouth but com fortable log cabins and started the clear ings in the woods, which in time became the broad, fertile fields of the modern f aimer, found hi roots and herbs that lay close at hand nature's potent remedies for all their common ailments. It was only in very serious cases tbey sent for old "saddle bags" with his physic, which quite as often killed as cured. Latter day society has wandered too far away from nature, in every way, for its own good. Our grandfathers and grandmothers lived wholeFomer, purer, better, healthier, more natural lives than we do. Their minds were not filled with noxious isms, nor their bodies saturated with poisonous drugs. Is it not time to make a change, to re turn to tbe simple vegetable preparations of our grandmothers, which contained the power and potency of nature as remedial agents, and in all the ordinary ailments were efficacious, at least harmless? The proprietors of Warner's Log Cabin remedies have thought so, and have put on tbe market a number of these pure vegetable preparations, made from form ulas secured after patient searching into the annals of the past, so that those who want them need not be without them. Among these log cabin remedies will be found "Log Cabin Sarsaparilla,' for the blood: "Log Cabin hops and buchu remedy, a tonic and stomach remedy "Log Cabin cough and consumption remedy;" "Log Cabin hair tonic," for strengthening and renewing the hair; "Log Cabin extract," for both external and internal application; "Log Cabin liver pills; "Log Cabin rose cream. old but effective remedy for catarrh, and "Log Cabin plasters." All these reme dies are carefully prepared from recipes which were found, after long mveBtiea tion, to have been those most succeBsf nlly used by our grandmothers of ye olden time. They are the simple, vegetable, efficacious remedies of log cabin days. The occupants of an Astoria, Ore. hostetery fish from their bedroom win dows and haul in their suppers from tbe surging water about the hotel founda tions. Make no Mistake. If you have made up your mind to buy Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be induced to take any other Hood's Sareaparilla is a peculiar medi cine, possessing, by virtue of its peculiar combination, proportion and combina tion, curative power superior to any other article of the kind before tbe peos pie.
