{ Feeling tlins toward him. it was not
strange that wlion Widow Garrett's

Tommy's dull faee brightened some

when tho second night after (he cow

All the way from the house to the

short "clink, clink" made by the bell
of an animal feeding.
"(Jet out, you brute!" he shouted.

.voice, and raised its head suddenly to

Mr, Clark went out n few yards into

tiigh ns he could, peered into the
ire nil-darkness.
"Clink, clink, clink," sounded the

to him, hut ho could soo nothing.
"Get out, you trespassing beast!" he

"clink, clink," of the bell, that seemed
to come from just beyond the circle
of light cast by the lantern he was
Presently he stopped, for tbe sound
of the hell had ceased.
Mr. Clark listened for ? moment.
Then he kicked soni> the hard earth
loose, gathered a handful, and flung
it in the direction in which he had
lieard the bell.
"Whey, you old fool!" he shouted.
A light wind stirred the wheat, but
there was no other sound; nor did he
hear the bell again that night, although
lit? searched for some time; neither did
he find any cattle in the Held. lie examined
tlio fence, but conld find no
place where an animal could have
broken in.
The more he thought about it. the
more mystified he became. lie feared
that the bell-ringing would bo repeated,

somewhat earlier than 011 the previous
evening, aiul armed with his lantern
a stout slick which he had provided,
Mr. Clark sallied out at the first
"clink, clink," of the bell, and for
nearly tfn hour followed it about, as
he had done on the previous night,
and to as little purpose.
Two of the nearest neighbors threw
up their windows and listened when
they saw the lantern in the field, and
niv.- .-Mii.miiiii surnir oegan to oe talked
of in the neighborhood.
Th? only result of this second visitation
was to fix the Idea firmly in the
minds of Mr. Clark and those who
heard it, that it was really old I
Itrindle's hell.
The next day Mr. Clark called or.
Widow Garrett.
"I came," lie began, with assumed
confidence, "lo buy your cow-boll. I
suppose you'd as lief sell it, as you
j have no use for it now?"
"I should be glad to do so," assured
' tlie widow, "but they did not think
it worth keeping, and so buried it with
the cow."
"I'd pay you a pood price for it,"
ho continued watching her keenly.
"I'm sorry I have not got it," she
replied. "I'd be glad enough to sell
it if I could."
The man turned a shade paler.
"I?I can't always tell my cow-bells
when I'm hunting my cows, they're
so like tho others, and that was so
"I'm sorry," repeated th? wWiow.
"Oh. wol/. it don't m.-it I cnn.
tinned Mr. Clark. "Now I come to
think of it, tho boll was cracked and
wasn't worth much. You'll be buying
a new one, I presume?"
The willow shook licr head.
"It would bo a great help to me,"
islic safd, "but I could not raise the
money 10 nuy one.''
That night the farmer decided not
to go out to the Hold, hut he discovered,
us did hls> neighbors, tliat tlie
bel! rang just the same, whether he
went out or not.
Big hoys began to whistle when they
had to pass the lielrt after sundown,
and little hoys .would not pass iP at
all after dark.
The next night the farmer lay awake
and listened; he did not get up until
the sound of the hell eame through
the field, and went up and down, un
and down along his pardon fence.
Then ho loft his bed, dressed himself
and followed it. into the Held. A number
of the neighbors stood in the road
and shouted out to him.
"Why don't you set the dog on it?"
called one.
Mr. Chirk rli<l )ml n ilnr* l?nt n
neighbor brought one, nnd it was gent
into the field.
It. went in fast. enough, but it did
not come back. Later the* owner found
that it had sneaked out on the opposite
side of the field and gone home.
The neighbors were standing outside
the fence, and Mr. (Mark inside, just
in the edge of the wheat. With one
accord they seemed to have left him
to search out the mystery alone, only
helping by advice.
"Why don't you go into Ihe field
before it comes," asked one, "and

Tho strenuous life is not now. Fo?
strenuosity that is the real thing 0110
must rend Vizetelly's newly published
"Liifo of lOniile Zola." Ghastly, grislr
was Zola's early struggle in Paris. Ho
starved with his grisette in a garret,
lie wrote plays and they were not accepted.
lie wrote novels and they fel:
Hat. lie persevered, however, anCHnaliy
came into his own, into famfl
and fortune. His literary work may
not last, but lie will live as the friend
of Dreyfus. He was a poseur as a reformer.
His attempt to duplicate Balzac's
"Human Comedy" in the ltougouMaequart
series of novels was, it must
bo confessed, a failure. But Zola
worked without ceasing, and he had
liis reward such ns H \v:is. Thill ho
could not enter the French Academy
was the great grief of his life. 11 its
exclusion was just, for his writing* j
were hardly literature. He will liv#
with Voltaire as the friend of the persecuted
and oppressed, llis "Life" ia
a bitter, strong story of a man wbos?
chief gospel was work, work and evciniore
work. And when 1 lluishcd th*
book I wondered what became of the

The Capo to Cairo railroad, the Inception
of the late Cecil Rhodes, lias ;
reached Ihe southern bank of the Zambesi
ltiver at the Victoria Falls. The
first section of the project is now*
realized, over lfiOO miles of track having
been laid down, stretching from
Cape Town to this point. The roust
ruction of the single-span bridge,
which is to carry the track across the
Zambesi iroraro at a hoicrlit of 420 i
foot, is now being proceeded with, and
the second section of the railroad will
then be commenced. This section will
run from the north bank of the Broken
1 fill, in the direction of Lake Tanganyika,
a distance of IJ.IO miles. Heyond
that point no definite course has
been decided, though there are several j
projected routes under consideration.
According to Cecil lthodes, this trans*
continental railroad was to he r?700
miles in length. While the track has
been steadily constructed northward

Second Fire in Orphanage.
The Thornwell Orphanage Seminary
building at Clinton has again suffered
from fire. The flames caught In the
roof from a defective flue and was
burned to the ground.
Workmen bad Just finished teeting a
new furnace and the building had
been closed for the day. The Are was
discovered early, but as the town has
pot yet put in Its waterworks, the efforts
to put out the names wero of no
avail. The fire soon reached an
eighty-five foot tower and became a
hugo pillar of flames.
Efforts were then diverted to the
iiiuivciiuu ui nit? ivicv-oriiHCK nuine, a.
dormitory building on the orphanage
campus, and the recitation hail of the
Presbyterian college, both of which
were threatened. Both buildings were
adequately protected.
The Thornwell seminary for orphans.
which was the name of the
burned building, was dedicated in 1883
by Governor Hugh S. Thompson,
whose death in New York a few days
ago the people are now lamenting.
The building was in process of construction
for eighteen months (luring
which period the labor and other bills
were promptly met at the end of each
week, though at no time were the
funds In hand sufficient to pay them
a week In advance.
Tliip was the main educational Ftruclure
of the large institution and con
tainod in addition to a largo chapel
some six class rooms. The loss is
right thousand dollars, with only one
thousand dollars of insurance.
It falls, therefore, as a heavy Wow
upon an institution which only a few
dayu ago had a similar loss in the
burning of inomoiral hall, the dining
hall of the orphanage. Help is needed
as never 1 efore.
