MY POOR WIFE.
BY J. P. SMITH. m-cs: usii s :w :::: OHAPTHit XUt. It was dawn a eohl, mlty dnwn ns ! eteppwt, with a miilllml treat), to my drawing room. I stopped and looked at Mr steeple) wife, and. as 1 looked, tlit ghastly Idea struck inn tlmt I wee not looking Into the features nf n sleeping, but a dead woman. The etattr rigid repose, the waxen rolnr of the kin, the fixed look of pain about the drawn month, all seemed to con firm my fear, until. leaning rlOMr. a faint breath tanned my cheek and the moaned feebly. I stole away. swal lowed a gkwu of brandy, threw myeelf upon a ranch In my dressing room and won Hank Into an uneaay dose. Mel on "a sleeping face haunted me. 1 dreamt tlmt alia wan lying dead on the cliff where we had ao often ant togeth er, and that when I ctoojied to lift her Ixxlr In my arma a iralr of bony hands cloaed fiercely round my throat, stran gling my met for mercy, dragged me to the oi!r of the rllff, where I Metre ly struggled (or my life. The lunula 1 knew belonged to old Molly (irlflln; lint the face glowering over me waa young U'ltltntu llernshaw's. dlatnrtod with iwaalnn. At last, with n violent wrench, I freed one arm. nnd seising the hand prosing my throat, nwoku to find llelou loaning over mo, drug ging her wrist from my clutch. I looked at her stupidly for a sec .oud. "I I mn doing you no harm," ahe iiftlil, her eyes nickering nnd glaring nt ni stealthily. "1 came to nee why why you had not come to lied. Let 'me go. let me go, I any you hurt mo.' I nt once dropped her hand, and ahe ran quickly nway to her own room. 1 did not tee her again until break fuel, when ahe appeared In n lively, talkative mood and civilly disposed towarda both ICdlth and me. though ahe never once looked ua In the face, hut kept bar eyea almost cloaed or fasten ed to her plate. After giving aome liouaehold m-drr ahe wont out, nnd, Btan liii; ti tli window of my study, 1 w.,i. in i ht for aome time pacing n retln-ii I. nrr of the kitchen garden villi a xwifi, inniiotoiioua stride; at Jast i in. movement became ao repug ns n in inn tlmt, scarcely heeding what J wai iMiik. I threw oieti the window uud called nut to her- "Helen, I'm going to the club thla morning; hnwn't you miy ahnpplng to do? The dog cart will he round in Jialf an hour. "Mo uon '" ..'iid. after a vnoment'H piiiHi. "Dfunli'M, I imve ah 'iigaatiii iit nil- afternoon.

"H wm an hot, I Mt ton buy to dries: I hope ynn hml a pleaaant drive," ahe all ilruwmly, her eyelaahea mill aweepiiiK Iut -b ka. Aim ' i uiiix-nrablc coming back," I Hniw M'ii. throwing myself upon n tiea I'V the n ti window. "1 am near ly i imk.'ii wlili dust; I feel I eould nwallow a uiiurt of claret and aodn." "I'll get Mme," aald Helen, going to warda ike dining room, and prnaently returning with a cool, frothing tum bler, which ahe banded to me and then itood behind my chair. I turned, laid my hand on her nrm, nnd aald gently: "Helen, tell me what la the matter with you. Why will you not look at me-wife?" She did not i tove or nnawer n word, though I regaled my Imiulry nlmuet ooaxlngly. na one would iiueailon a pettish, wayward child. I withdraw my hand and lift!, algh lag wearily the glaea, when auddeuly. with a loud cry. ahe daahed It from my Una. the liquid squirting up Into my face, Sowing down my shirt nnd collar and streaming onto (he carpet, .where the glnaa lay broken. Stung to the quick by the Initiltlng violence of the art, I sprang to my feet, glaring speechlessly at her until ttdllli, whoee preaence I waa net aware of, ran eagerly towarda me and pasted tier hamtkerehlef over my wet fae and iieek. "Mew dare your I stammered ltosraaly "What do yon meant Are Helen burst Into a wild, loud laugh "Tee, yea. mod mad aa a March hare -md- mad -la maddeet wife over a true husband had. Oh, my poor head -my peer head-It aehes lt ackeel A breath of bh air would da it good a breath of aea air I" ahe moaned, lletleesly moving away. I went too, (or even Hdle'a toft tewed and pitying eyes wero more than I e4 Ul bear. Ordering my keree, I gave W bis head, rode afro vuuntry aa If folkewlMg the twlfteet bsunda that ever ran a fox to earth. I kNew not whither or bow far I went; It waa night when the poor brute, lame, foot nre, crawled up the avenue again, ltd I Ik woe waiting for me on the door ate), ami led me Into the dlnlag-reont, where a tempting supper waa laid. "Hat, eat." ahe eaid; "you leak ther ougjily exhausted, peer dear." "Ike." I began nervously. "Ike has been perfectly quiet ever ttaee, kteked hp In her roetu. Don't trouble about tier now; she'll be all right tomorrow, you'll find. Now, denr Way. to supper, plonso." Tho next niarnlng I wan awakened from a drenmlom loep by tho liouno heener, Mrs. Murrey n vnlued nnd tnmtwl eervant who hnd served tho family for nearly forty yearsrousing me violently. "What is It?" I naked, sitting up In my bed with n vague feeling of appro henslnn. "Has anything happened?" "Hush, littRh, master Paul." alio aald agitatedly, "wo must keep It quiet as long aa we can. Remsthlng has hap pened. She has gone." "My wife?" "Ves, when I went Into ker roam this morning I found It empty and tho bod not slept in; the Is not In any pnrt of the hmise grounds. That la all I can tell you." Urging her to keep the other nor rants In Ignorance If Hxwlhle, I droeaed hurriedly, and, my mind dlstrnctml with wrnlli. suspicion, vnguo terror and Joalousy, sought In vain for nny trace of my unfortunate wife. Bhe had disappeared completely, without leav ing a note or inoesngo; no ono had scon or heard her quit tho house, and, after a guarded Inquiry nt the Ktntlon, 1 as certained that sho had not been ob sorvod by either gunrds or station ranstor taking nny of tho morning or lato night-trains. Towards mid-day, foverlsh with anxiety, entirely bnfllcd, I returned homo. Calling Mrs. Mur ray, I begged her to got by portman teau ready, as 1 was leaving nt onco. "Where to what are you going to do toll me, Master l'nul?" sho plead ml, with a shaking volco. "I'm going nftcr him." I ntunored chokingly: "don't bother mo, wom an, but get my things quick)" "Him who's him?" "Hernahnw; he left the (1 range last night." "Well, well, sir you know your own business best; but I think you're go ing mi a fool's errand after him. I'd look elsewhnru If 1 were you," I seised hor hands ns a drowning mnii would a straw. "Hlsowhero?" I ropetod. "What do you mean? Murray, Murray, you know, you guoes whoro alio Is. Oh, don't keep me In auspeneo! If you know what horrible thoughts torture mo!" "I know no inre than you. sir, wbi re alio Is." sh" Interrupted sadly. "Uy oise where I think 1 meant somewhere near the hh. fur tho lost week she'a been talking about tho son, mid son gulls, nnd rooks and things o' the kind, and complaining of n pain In her head and n mistiness over her oyee." "Of course, of course," I broke In eagerly. "What a short-sighted, dull fool I've been! She's gone to Done gal! I'll start after her at once and bring her home before the tales get about, Murray, I rely on you " "You may, air; I'll do ray beat, never fear," ahe aald Impressively, lnying her band on my arm to detain mo. "Hut but. Master laul, forgive mo saying what I'm going to say. Having known you from your eradlo, nnd, as It woro, playing tho part of mother to you when your own waa taken ao young "I'lrs ahead!" I hurst In Impatiently. "You know you can say what you like to me, Murray." "Then, Master Paul," ahe whispered hurriedly, "lake my ndvloo, nnd, before you bring your wife home, send the other nwny." "Murray!" I atnmmored, releasing myself. "What nonsonso you talk! It's It's you who nro on tho wrong track now. I!d Miss Stanford's presence hero has hud lathing to do with tho unfortunate misunderstanding with my poor wtfe-how could It?" The old woman laughed bitterly, nnd moved away, shaking her hoad. 1 pur sued her uneasily. "Listen to me, and I'll convince you. Helen never knew, never oven sus pected that 1 I had onco cared fur Mlea Mtopford. She believed I looked upon her ns a sister whom I was brought up with; she never objected to hsr staying here, Indeed she went at enee to the Oeneral the moment the visit was suggested; never allowed the faintest sign of of dislike or Jealousy. Oh, do stop nodding thst ridiculous gray old head of yours!" 1 burst out Impatiently. "Say what wou mean and hare dene with It." "Itllnd. blind, blind!" ahe repeated, looking at we with pitying reproach. "Your wife knew you loved Mies Hdlth the flrat day you met her here, and, though ahe baa been lighting against the knowledge- trying to deceive her self It kss been of na use; day after day the truth baa been burning Into her poor heart, turning her very brain until sho could boar It nu longer, and new ahe baa lied from ker pain." "If thla be true," I muttered hoarse ly, "as sure us there Is a Heaven above I had not the faintest at least not a reasonable or tangible eusplclon of such a thing being the case. How- how should I? She she never com plained-never reproached me--" "Hut eke laved you. Matter Paul laved you aa few men are loved by women-even by the truest or best of them. You had no reasonable sus picion of tt-it. had you? Ah, no, not And, loving you as she did, how eould you ever expect her net to see what arcvy Writer who came to the house every son nut about the place, saw ead commcntei na?" "What did they seo confound them?" 1 blustered wr&tbfully. "Maw that you wore kcoplng a. iweethenr'. and n wlfo under one roof," tho otd servant retorted bluntly: "saw your face brighten when you looked nt the ono, heard your volco soften when you spoko to her; saw you pass Ing notes to ono another, riding to gother, slipping nway together ten times a day; meeting after dark, wills-1 poring together. Ah, Master Paul, I Master Paul, docs not your consolenco thin moment toll you what thoy saw ' and what brings tho color Into your face so cruel hot this mlnuto?

PUT TO SLEEP BY PHONOGRAPH This, with the Aid of Kcvolvinu Color Disks, Is the Newest Cure for Insomnia. CHAPTHIl XIV. Without vouchsafing n reply, I seised my portmanteau, and (lung It Into tho dog-eat t wnltlng to take mo to tho station. Tho next evening, worn out with susponso and anxiety, I sighted tho old fnrm-liniiso on the hill. Mrs. Casey was ill In bod, Mlko In formed mo, nnd envtd not soe nny ono, no matter how urgent or Important their business. Sho knew nothing whatever of my wlfo, or hoard from hor since she took my mime, or heard from hor within tho Inst three months. Hho begged mo to go nway and let her leave this world In pence. Hho wished lo ho troubled no more with tho af fairs of this world, nnd. It I Insisted on forcing myself Into her presence, would refine to glvo mo speech. 1 walked slowly away and stood on tho odgo of tho cliff slnrlng out to nea, wondorlng whither to turn, what to do noxt, when old Molly touched my el bow, nnd, turning to her, hopo and re lief lightened mo In n Hash. 'Molly, you bring ma news. Bhe Is with you," I began eagorly, nnd then stopped short as sho mournfully shook hor head. 'No," she sold, taking tho plpa from hor mouth, "I bring ye no news. I only hoard linlf nu hour ngo what had hnpponod. And tho 'ould wnn wouldn't sco ye. wouldn't she? I waH after thlnkln' alio wouldn't." "You know nothing; you cannot help me?" I repented blankly. "Oh. don't say that!" Nothing, my Ind nothing. Hlio hnsn't boon here, nu' I don't think sho' 1 1 como now, poor llttlo thing; ye bognii to Ill-use hor soon enough, llonven knows! Well, well. I'm not surprised. I thought It would nil end tlmt wuy; but not so soon- oh. not ? cruel soon!' she roponteff, with n harsh laugh. "Ye might hnvo spared her for wnn ear at tho Inlst, for sho loved yo una." "Molly" I cried vehemently, "you- you don i utidorstand. Listen to mo I I I toll you I would glvo ovory rurtn. Iiik I noestws. my life Ituelf, to find her now enfe and well nnd and teach her to forglvo mo! Do not Judge mo so harshly; but help me, help mo. for there's not a moment to be lost! " 'I'll help re ns well as 1 ran.'' mio said, after a searching glance, "for I see ye're sorry, hut I'm feard my holp won't go far. Sit down beside me, an I'll tell jo her mother's story to begin with, If y haven't hoertl it already belike." "Her inollior died when sho was an Infant, she told mo." "Ay. Whon she wns four days old hor mother stole out o' tho bed ono wild night In Novombor, nn' lliing hor soil from the stone on whloh yor nit- tin' down to tho bench bolow. Sho was picked up In the liny noxt moru la' by the boys comln' homo from the llshlii', every bone In hor body broko In bits -as cruel n sight as Ivor me ould eyoa foil on. I couldn't got It out o' me sight for months after." (To bo Continued.) it you can't sleep, tlo up to a phono graph. It dispels bad dreams and goes a long way townrd preventing those forms of Insnnlty to whloh Insomnia nnd nightmares tend. Many n man In the over-busy life of today takes his worries to bed with him. whore they torment him halt tho night, This Is wearing on tho nerves, for after being harassed by tho thousand nolsos of tJto clly during the day the nerves demand rest. Only sleep can glvo It to them, and nowadays the time set npnrt for sleep Is nil too short, thnnks to tho demand of business and of social du ties. And to be deprived of hnlf of ovon this scant portion by n lot of demon plans and schemes that nro trouble Kimo enough In day time Is nn unmiti gated outrage, lr. J. Leonard Corning has Just In terested his ealtmiguos by a romnr'k nhle trcntlso showing how to Induce sleep In ovon tho most ohstlnnto cases of Insomnia. Tho doctor's method Is one of substitution. He puts harmony In place of discord. Instead of dis tinction ho Introduces concentration, nnd soon unconsciousness, or If his patients dream their dreams are pleas nnt rather thnn morbid. Ho uses n phonograph, supplomonlcd by n mnglc lantern, fitted with revolv ing disks of various colors, and so con trives that tho patient Is under the ef fects of color harmony nnd sound har mony nt tho somo time a rtuplcx lul laby. It Is a combination fow, If nny, can resist, though the doctor modestly says that his Instruments are morcly "ndJunctB to tho purely medical re sources already at our disposal." Dr. Corning materially softens the tones that como from tho metal dia phragm of tho phonograph. This sof tening Is duo likely to the length of tho rubber tubo between tho phono graph nnd tho pntlcnt. t'sunlly lolk wish the lights out whon they would sleep, unless thoy on tho screen when the disks are In motion thcro Is a gentle flowing con tinuity of effect, ns though ono wero watching a running brook, nnd nt tho snino time a harmonious though ever changing color effect, as though one looked down upon tho dancers from a box nt tho charity ball. To avoid breaks In tho flow of harmony, whloh might wcakon or dlseomppso tho pa tient, the doctor usee two phonographs connecting the tubo of tho second to the tube of the first. Just when tho cylinder an tho II tut mnchlno lint run out ho starts machine No. 2, and tho Interval between tho two Is hardly appreciable. Ho always places his phonograph In a room adjoining the one the patten occupies, because ho onn opernto them there without fenr of disturbing his subject. It n patient Is partlrulurly wenk or debilitated, Dr. Corning advises some form of mild stimulant before tho trcntmont be gins. Whii WnKimr Ruoliita. "Harmony," enyi, tho doctor, "Is moro effective thnn melody In this vi bratory form of treatment, nnd for this reason selections from the Wng ncrlan compositions rendor cxcellint sorvlre. Arpeggios nnd minor chords nro llkewlso exceedingly effective. Most of tho music to bo hnd In tho shops Is worthless for tho purpose; but I am hnppy to say that ot lato, what with tho Improvement In the re producer and tho more dexterous prep aration of the cylinders, more porfeot though less plentiful harmony Is now nvallablc. Should the volume ot sound bo too great, It may bo diminished either by plugging the oars or by blooklng tho conducting tubo with cot ton." Not only do musical vibrations drive nway the blues and bad dreams, nnd prodtico cheerfulness nnd pleasant dreams In their stead, but when nil bod with him, thoughtlessly at first, but later because he could not help blmsolf, cams to auch a stab that iliiep without drags was Impossible. These ceased to nfUct In time, and he began the use ot stimulants by day to keep himself up and by night to put himself to alcep. After a while thla scheme failed. He lost his grip, He did not csre for music, but the colors help him, and he went to sleep In a couple of hours. As treatment advanc ed, be fell to sleep earlier and earlier, and began to appreciate tho tunes, Finally by recalling their accompany ing color harmonies ho could bring the muslo back to mind, end after treat ment ceased ho could call up tho cure by n slight will effort, If need be. A young woman, who could enjoy neither rending nor writing, who was always In dread at tho thought ot work or nt responsibility, was pro foundly melancholy ench morning from the tlmo sho nwoke until mid dny. Hho hnd not tho least Impulse to arise until sho had drunk strong coffee or other stimulant. She tried many treatmonts without relief. At Inst sho tried tho phonograph and the revolving colors. Her melancholy dis appeared. With tho aid of n little trl onnl she was asleep soon. Tho noxt morning sho felt bettor thnn sho bad far months. Tho depression wns gono. On the (If night tho trlonnl was un necessary. Her nppetlto returned with hor Improvement, nnd soon sho was well. PRESENCE OP MIND. Tlmt Fvil III I.Ives of Two tllrli on lUllroHd llrldR. Plttsfleld (Mans.)

They wore crossing tho bridge over tho river bo tween Hoitsntonlo and Otcndato, known ns the lied bridge. When about half way across the southbound milk train enmo nround tho curve nt high speed and boro down upon them. The engineer blew his whlstlo nnd put on tho brakes, but could not stop the MVlilla Jitkea, "Well. Johnnie." said tho minister to n little follow, nged 0, "I hour you urn going to sehool now." "Yt, sir, wns the reply. "And what part of It do you like best?" asked the good man. "Oomln' home," waa tho prompt and truthful answer. Harry, ngod B, hnd his photograph tnkon recently, and when tho proof was sent homo his mamma said he looked too solemn and naked him why he didn't smile. "I did smile, mnmtnn," replied the little fellow, but I gueea tho man forgot to put It down." "Mamma," asked little Willie, "did Daniel Webster build tho dictionary?" No, dear; It was Noah; but why do you ask?" aald his mother. "Why," replied the youngeter. "our teacher said that Noah built the ark, and I thought he might have got Daniel to build the dictionary for him If he waa busy." Tommy, aged S. and bis cousin Wil lie, aged 6, had oevernl little alterca tloim, In which Tummy Invariably got the worst ot It. One day his mamnin said to him: "Tammy, to-morrow Is Willie's birthday; wouldn't you like to give him something?" "You Just better believe I would," was the reply; "but, you see. he's bigger than I am and I eau't." Little 6-year-nld Clara's papa had been away on a protracted business trip and her mamma was putting thing In order and making sundry preparations for hla return. Clara watched her closely for awhile and then observed: "Mamma, you make aa much fuss as i old Mr. Prodigal." "What do you mean, dear?" naked her mother. I never beard of Mr. Prodigal." "Oh, yes. you did, mamma," waa the reply. "Don't you know, the bible tells about what a fui ho made when his son came back!" are hail I y trained children nnd our nervous nnd nfrnld at nlgbtmnre. but the doitor uses lights of iminv colors mid, moreover, maki these colon revolve, which gives nu hypnotic or-tect. Iteaily fur tin Trlnl. Die patient lies on u couch roady fur tbo doctor to bogln operations. He wears tho ncoiutlc hood or helmet, which u long rubber tube connects with the phonograph on the shelf ovor bend. A speaking tubo connects with this tube. Through this tho pa tient hears what over the doctor bus to say. Hack at tho patient Is tho storonptlcon with an electric battery attachment for running the revolving disks. At tho foot ot the couch Is tho screen on which the Inutorn casU tho kaluldoncopl" designs. The helmet U of tanvus or soft leuthor. It fits tight ly to tho hoad, except at the ears.wbcre tho doctor has cut the material away, leaving tho faco exposed. Over each ar, Instoad ot the cloth or leather, thrro Is n metallic souser Just deep enough to cover on tho car without pressing it. There Is a nipple at tho top ot each saucer, to which the ends ot the forked rubber tube attach. Aft er arranging tbo helmet properly the patient can llo In nny position com fortably witnout losing connection with the phonograph, which obviously he could not do If he used the ordin ary metallic forks. As the edges of the saucers have soft pads that pre1! elcsely against the head abcut mo ears, ttmy shut out effectively all sounds ex cept those from the phonograph or tram the speaking tube. The helmet's pressure la suflleleutly unusual to make It a hindrance at flrit, though after the patient has worn It a tew times lis has become ac otiitomed to It and doos not Interfere with his going to sleep, llesldos, It he looks steadily at the revolving lights his pawer ot attention will ox hautt Itself, and, forgetful ot this head- knr. ho will fall quietly to sleep to whatever tune tho phonograph hap pens to bo delivering. Sometimes a particularly fidgety patient may need trlonnl 10 to IE grains- but that Is loldom. The lantern Is the ordinary storeop tlcon with rotating disks Instead ot llldes. The disks revolve In opposite Attectlous by simply cog-wheel gear ing, for which a small electric motor ittppllea the power.

Dr. Coming cltos these cases as rep resentative ot the olusses of patloitts he has dealt with phonographleally. A studious and versatile young man up In art nnd music, but overfond ot speoulattvo philosophy, two years ago suffered an emotional strain. After that he had to do a great deal ot brain work. He became morbid. Then an oyo trouble shut him from his books, lleeovered from this he still had mol aneholla. l'nder treatment he cheered up completely, and whenever stnee then he has felt dangers of tho "bluea" ho has only to recall the Images nnd the ratule of the treatment, and the clouds roll by. A man past mlddlo life had good di gestion but bad dreams. He believed thoy were ovll omens. He would nut hear ot phonographic vibrations for a long time until, finally, declaring his skepticism vehemently, he consented to try Dr. Coming's plan. He was slow to go to sleep, but he did eventually. Then the doctor put out the lamp, but kept the music going two hours moro. Tho next morning the patient said he had dreamed as mueh as ever, but pleasantly. He took music every night after that for five weeks, when the memories of his former nightmares had gone. Onl oneo since then has anything approaching his former trou ble bothered blm. A speculator who took his eares to HOW IT 18 DO.NB, tralft.
