"Now that wo understand eub otner, la us shako hands and t friends." "That's it." Their hands met In a firm grasp. They looked, into each other's faess, ont tvith a merry cwinkle in bis eye and a brord smile over his jovial features: the othe- -with a glance lorg drawn out, grave and solemn, that seemed to cast a. shadow ot glooBr-op-everything oboe tt ho scene. "You'll do year best, and Til do my best That's what we've- agreed, 0iiUmVlvZip-l TifkinsP "That's it, Ben Button, and whichever of us wins, the other shall bear no ill will "Just so, Zip." "And everything except murder shll b counted fjirf" "Eh?" "And murder, too, if jou ars willing to tako the consequences." 'Say, Zip, bold onl" 'So' if I should put joq out of my way right here," continued Ziri, without seeming to notice the interruption, and drawing a small pistol out of bis boot leg as he spoka, 'aud it would never be found out on me, why it would be all right." "But, Zip, say" "Or if it were found out." Zip still ctn tinued, raising the pistol higher and high till it pointed straight for Ben's breast, "am. I were willing to tako all therlbto get clear which I think I am ready to do, -shy that, too, would be all right." 'Hello! Beu, where are you going?" shouted Zip, as tho former turned and ran down tht road at what seemed to be almost breakneck speed, frequently casting scared and anxious glances behind him. Gen, however, did not stop to answer, but kept strcizht on until he was lost to sight in a bend of the road, while Zip, bending almost double with laughter, sent peal after peal oi nierriuiKiS ringing out on the balmy evening air. 'Of all the chickens in Christendom Ben Button takes the womil" cr'ed Zip, a broul uriti still nu bis face, is he also turned itnd walked away. Zip Pifkins, full of liro, fun and frolic, had for the lust few weeks been playing rival to Ben Button in th affections of Mclinda Spratt. Ben as serijusly in love with Me liuda; Melinda's young heart was fonl of Zip, and Zip. homeless, careless, fun loving rover that ho was, had never a thought that reached into thj future for an hour Ben and Zip lad met in the road accident ally Bca was on his way to the Sprtt homestead to make -further siege to Melintla'g heart. For ihe last few days Ben had had but nnt thought, and that was bow to get rid of nr. a rival So, when ho met.Zip, he pleaded from tho fu luess of bis heart and in the most pers jasiyp language he could command that Zip would relinquish all claim to Mo Unda's heart and hand. Zip, In pure fun, feigned love also, and with well assumed earnestness tried in turn to prevail upon Ben to withdraw from tha race. Np'ther, however, would give in. A a last resort they finally agreed that each should, in a fair, friendly way, be permitted to plead his own causr with ileliinia and let her decide. With Zip, so far, it was onjy a good Joka, and as such be had triad the most of it, M has hern seen. ,Bsn Button with rfgularity spent two even ings of the week ut the Spratt domicile With Melinda be made very slow, if any, progress into favor; with Mrs. Spratt, hovr ever, he won golden opinions and stood la high g ice. Since tho compact between Ben and Zip the latter had visited Melinda but onco, and then sho had, in a very shy and sweet way, teas ing!" upbraided him for having tried to t&ka tho life of her constant admirer, Ben Button "And would it break your heart, Melinda. if ho were to die asked Zjp. with an cage? undertone in his voice, watching her f&c closely. "It would almost of course, if but. Zip, you h . ve no ight to ask such questions," sli answered, looking up shyly and blushing. 'Well, you needn't be uneasy about him. I wouldn't hurt Ben Button, by a single thought or word, much less take his life" re plied Z.p, with an earnestness unusual witb him. "I was only joking. Zip. But you seem to be awfully in earnest and solemn this even ing. What i3 ailing you, any way?" "Nothing much, only 1 have made up my md to go away," answered Zip, looking side. "Go awayr "Yes. Melinda." "Where are you goingf "Anywhere. It makes no difference, to I get a way." "Aud ain't you coming back?" "Some day, maybe, if ever I get to be of any account to myself or anybody else." "You are of some account pow, Zip, and you had better stay right where you are." "No; I've made up my mind to go and 1 am suro it is the best thing that jould hap pen for us all around, so I'll stick to it," said Zip resolutely. Melinda was looking out of the window. VL:n she saw a man coming up the lano to ward tho house and recognized in the comet Ben Button, a shade of annoyance flitted over her face. Zip had been watching Melinda, and when ho saw the slight frown oh her face he, too, glanced out, and, seeing who was coming, he roso to his feet ready to depart, saying, "I'll call in again beforo I leave and tell you all good-by. Good evening." Melinda glanced reproachfully after the retreating Zip. There was a suspicion of tears in her eyes and a little quiver around her mouth, as she murmured to herself, 'Fool Zip! ho is going away because he thinks 1 am going to marry t'jat hateful Ben Button and ho is jealous. But I can't make bini see and 1 won't ask him totstay. I'll dit first. There!" The truth was that a serious thought had at last come to Zip. Ho was in love, and he knew It. He had looked at himself as in a looking glass and found out bis own worU" lessncss. More than that, he had determined to go away, change his habits and shif tless uess, and become a useful man and citizen, lie would not ask Melinda for her love until ho had made himself worthy of it. If, how ever, in the meantime some other man Bej Button, perhaps stepped in ahead of him, why, he would still be the gainer by an am bition for higher things which, in an indi rect way, would be a gift from Melinda. That evening Ben Button asked Melinda ta become his wife; but she was in no hrunor to answer him then, for Zip's foolish determina tion to go away troubled her in xto small de gree. She knew, too, that her moier fa vored Ben above any one else, and that sb would bo grieved if Ben received a curt re fusal, so sho told hkn she would hav an an swer ready for him when he should cab agiin. and Ben was happy. Days passsd waj Zfeqr wwt lm i nope to Ben, days of doubt and Irresolution to Melinda, and busy .days for hand ani thought with Zip. The decisive evening came at last, and Ben was on band with his usual clockwork regu larity to receite what he fully expected to be a favorable answer to his suit. It had been a rainy day, but the sun had broken through the clouds in the evening ani was setting bright and clear, casting, its last rays upon Mrs. Spratt, Melinda and Ben Button, as they sat on tha west:, gallery of the bouse. "I declare, Melinda,? said Mrs. Spratt, sud denly, "if them well diggers haven't gone off and forgot to shut thai gap itu the fenop around the well." "And there is Blossie'xicalf .In. the; yard now, and going-straight for-thcuwelL, Til go and shut, up the gap, motberryou; sit still," said Melinda, ar Mrs.:Spra;.ww rahoutto. rise. Melinda ran toward the well, heading the calf off at the same tima She was about to close the gap in the fence when her eyes .ell upon the wide opening in the ground. She hesitated a moment, then entered the gap and approached the well cautiously. On the brink, shj peered over and looked into the depth below. She was bout to withdraw again, but the ground under her feet gave way, and with a loud scream she was hurled to the bottom of the well. Mrs. Spratt and Ben saw what happened for their eyes had fondly followed Melinda in her every movepjent, and they aow rushpd to the scene of the catastrophe. Stepping carefully upon some planks that were lying across the opening of the wi',, they peered into the abyss below them, There was no sound except of crumbling earth and pebbles falling from the sides of tho well. The earth was loose from the rain during tho day, and the break where Ma linda had fallen in had started the walls to caving all around. Then a large mass of earth fell crashing to the bottom of tho well and laid bare a huge bowlder hanging as if ready to topple the next moment. . A faint moan from the bottom of the well reached the ears of those above. "Oh. Ben. she is alive I Save her! save uerl". cried Mrs. Spratt. "I can't, Mrs. Spratt. That rock in the side cf the well will tall in directly," whined Ben. "Oh, save her, Ben! TU lower you down tvith the windlass and hoist you out again," pleaded Mrs. Spratt. '"Taint no use. That rock will tumble in in a minute," still moaned Ben. Just then Zip, with bead bent, came walk ing toward tho house. Mrs. Spratt saw him and called out to him excitedly: ''Zip! Zipl com quiek, and savo Malinda," Zip heard and did not lose a moment in running to the welL Ho took in the situation at once. With all speed possible he unwound the rope from the windlass, and after telling Mrs. Spratt and Ben to stand ready to hoist, went down in the well, hand over hand, on the rope. The earth was still falling, striking the bot tom with a hollow sound, when Zip with a lusty shout told them to boit away. Melinda was landed above ground at last, bleeding, bruised and unconscious. The rope was lowered Again, and just as Zip's head was above ground the large rook, in th" side of the well and masses of earth from all around crumbled in and fell with a sound u of thun der to the bottom of the well It was a narrow escape. Melinda was carried to the house aud a doctor was sent for. Before be Arrived, how ever, she regained consciutmasfi, and seeing Zip bending over her, a glad smile lighte 1 up her fair young face, while she murmured, "Don't go away. Zip; don't go away." Just then Mrs. Spratt, accompanied -by the doctor, entered the room and approached the bed. When the good mother saw the smile on her daughter's face and Zip bending low above the pillow, glad tears came to her eyes and her voice was low and tender. "You can kiss her, Zip, if you want to," she said. Zip did "want to," and kissed Melinda on her smiling lips Then Mrs. Spratt put her arms around Zip's neck and kissed him too, and told kirn that he must leave the room while tho doc tor attended to Melinda's hurts, which upon examination proved to be mere bruises after all Ben hung around the house for a while, but when he saw that he .was left out in the cold by everybody, even by Mrs. Spratt, he thought it. best to go. John P. Sjolander in Times-Democrat. Paris Itenl and Romantic. "I never was so disappointed in my life as In the working women of Paris," remarked one lady American, of course. "1 had heard so much about the taste of Paris, that I thought even the shop girls and women in the streets would show it in superior neatness and s'.yle in their clothes; bnt they don't look as nice as the working women we see at home." Another lady said: "I am so disap pointed; I always thought of Paris as a sort of glorified city, where everything would be found that was most beautiful. I have only been here two days, it is true; but I have been to the Bon Marche and the shop? of the Louvre, and I was not tempted to buy in the least" Naturally, two days were not much in which to discover tha beauty of Paris, nor see the shops of the Bon Marche and the Louvre, the places in which to find the costly novelties that confer the prestige of supreme fashion and taste upon a city. Thero is, however, an immense difference between the Paris of today and the Paris of even ten cr fifteen years ago. Then tho working woman had not begun to adopt the prevailing style. They had, a neat and prac tical dress of their own not the' peasant dress but simpb in construction and free from cheap trimming and attempts at "drap ery." Now their dress is cut after paper pat tern modes, is cheaply furbelowed and sood looks shabby. The trim neatness and accur acy of cut has given place to attempts at finery, which cannot be renewed often enough for cleanliness and which marks "the decline in taste, which has been neglected or not cultivated in the right direction. Thoro is now little of originality, for there is no one to stimulate or pay for experimen tal efforts such as are needed for the develop ment of original and beautiful ideas even in dress. The fit of the French dressmaker is still the best in the world; but it would cease to bo so if it were not for her Russian, Amer ican, English and German customers. J euny June in Chicago Journal.

The lot of the poorer classes, and of those between poverty and com fortable circumstances is a hard one. Their dwellings are damp, musty, ill smelling, pestiferous. It is among these classes tl... the death rate is very high, but among the well to do people who live on what is here called the "primer piso," or first floor, or, in New England, the second story, the mortality Is not greater than in Boston. The peculiarity of .the climate is that its lack of oxygen renders recovery from sickness very difficult.. Once let yourself run down, and it is hard getting up again. The languor of the climate, the lack of life in the air, conspire to keep the Invalid weak, and it is the rule of the doctors to send patients out of tho .city as soon as it is possible to remove them. BEDROOMS SEALED AT MOHT. Out on the hillsides the country people are robust and rarely ill. unless they hap pen to be of that class who try to keep bedrooms hermetically sealed at night. This prejudice against the night air 1 very great and widespread. I suppose that eight-tenths of the Inhabitants of this city shut up their bedrooms as tigb'. as a drum every night of their lives. T'ias they breathe their own effluvia, and -pinr away to the profit of the doctors and tlw drug shops. This fact accounts for Che many mottled and sallow complexions one sees. People who have traveled, or those who are of receptive minds and have studied the matter, let the night air cir culate in their apartments. Their good blood and clear complexions testify to their obedience to hygienic laws. The dread of the fresh air is often car ried to a ludicrous extent. People sit ft? threo hours in a dirty, stuffy theatre and breathe the air of the sewers underneath tho floors, inhale all the human exhala tions which contaminate the unagitated air, and then, on going out into the com- Earatively pure air of the street, keep andkercniefs to their mouths and noses. This morning I noticed a sallow woman riding on the Paseo in her coupe, a lap dog on her knee. The glass windows ot tho vehicle were tightly shut, so that none of the glorious air of the morning in that favored spot should by chance enter her withering lungs. Thjs was the old monkish idea; in the convents the piouf brethren preferred close cells and musty tomes. They dreaded water, and soaj was unknown to them. A curious prejudice exists among many people here against cold water when the have a "catarro" or cold in tho head, o even a touch of chill in the bones. Fot weeks, till the cold has gone, they reso lutely refrain from touching water. An other popular prejudice here is that which impels a family to movo out of house wbcq any member of it has died. For this reason it is. needful to be cau tions in taking a house or apartments till you have made certain that no one has recently died therein of a contagious dis ease. So far does this prejudice go that many people abandon their old homes on the death of a member of the family. CniLDISn FEAR OF DISEASE. It does not seem to be so much a super stition as a childish (ear of disease. Ani yet these same people who would not con sent to remain in a house thoroughly and scientifically disinfected, with new wall paper and uew paint, will move to a houst with a stagnant ditch near at hand, and will shut themselves up in their bedrooms at night like herring in a box. The old houses here show In their construction the dread of air and sunshine. With little narrow windows, brick floors and tight doore. they were certain to become musty in six months' occupancy. The ancient convents had windows of the size of prison windows. Churches were built "so that never by anv chance could a breath of air got in to disturb the worshipers. All this the white man did. Bnt the Indian, living mainly In the open air of th high sierras, is a different sort of creature, a man who can make sixty miles or more a day He it is who eats with an appetite his frugal meal, and has the good, sens to beat his doU when they do not grunt his requests immediately. These are men and women with broad chests and a color that shows red blood and good circa- I lation. ineynave missed tne rennementi of the white race, but have preserved their livers and their lungs. In the heart of the Indian their lurks a contempt for the sickly colored white man He regards his pale faced brother as a man of artifice and endless refinements, who must have 8 hand an apothecary shop and a doctor, who dares not live out in the free country unless protected by servants, dogs and guns. The white man takes a horse for a journey of five miles; the Indian will g twelve times as far in a day on foot, and will be well and ready for another tramp the next day. when the white man's horse would be used up with two-thirds the same amount of travel. Generally a vege table eater, the Indian of the Mexican sierras is a proof that meat is not a neces sity of life. He eats a frugal meal of rornmeal tortillas, takes a drink of pulque or water, and wears out the meat-catlng dweller in towns.

The block had twenty-nine of these grooves, each filled to the depth of a quarter of an inch with ordinary stiff clay. With his copy before him, armed with small pair of iron pincers, the-composU tor began his work; character after char acter vas transfered from the case and rirrr. pressed into the clay. When tho 'form" was complete a flat board was placed on the top and the characters pressed perfectly even an level with tbs surface ot the wooden block, the edge of which was cat to form the border gener ally found round every Chinese page. The printer now received the form and careftlly brushed his ink over his type. Taking a sheet of paper, he pressed it down all over the form so that it might be brought into contact with every char acter. He then removed the sheet and examined each character, carefully adjust ing those which were not quite straight with the pincers, and apparently never touching the type with his Sneers. After sufficient copies had been struck off the type was distributed, each character being returueu to lis particular DOi..

The tilk about the removal of Libby prison to Chicago starts afresh reminis cences ot the war. There Is living in Chicago today t lady to whose house Lin coln was taken from Ford's theatre on the night that the president's life was taken by J. Wilkes Booth, The lady was at that time a child. Her people wvra southerners, and hated everything Yan kee. However, they were thb better class of southerners, who never permitted any one beneath their own roof -to he treated otherwise than as guests When Mr. Lincoln's body was carried into this house the family yielded everything to the comfort of the patient, and were deeply grieved at the misfortune, as they subsequently showed. The lady in ques tion has the pillow upon which the mar tyred president breathed his last. The piece of candle which was held for the surgeon as he was dressing the wound is preserved and in her possession. The coverlet which was thrown across the suf ferer, and many of the little things that were about the room, and some of which were nsed on the fatal night, were all preserved, and are in the keeping and the ownership ot Mrs. Charles Recto, i north side lady of Chicago. Chicapo Mail, A Cook -with m Centrifugal Motion. A well known Paris scientist, Dr. De branny, has made some curious discover ies which show the connection between little and great thipgs. To ascertain the qualities of an. applicant cook he says it is sufficient to give her a plate to clean, a sauce to make, and watch how she moves her hand in either act. If she mores it from left to right, or in the direction ot the hands ot a watch, yon may trust her; if the other way, she i certain to be stu pid and incapable. The intelligence of people may also be ganged, the doctor further says, by asking them to make a circle on paper with a pencil and noting in which direction the hand is moved. The good students In a mathematical . class draw circles from left to right. The inferiority of the softer sex, as well as the male dunces, Is shown by their drawing from right to left. Asylum patients do ;he same. In a word, says the doctor, centrifugal movements are characteristic of intelligence and higher development; centripetal are a mark of incomplete evo lution. A person, as his faculties are de veloped, may even come to draw circles in a different way from what he did in bis youth. Chambers' Journal. BnthntlMm Over Scotch Sons. We met with several instances of how enthusiastic Scottish feeling exists in the midst of colonial life, which, with its prosaic features and struggle after ma terial wealth, is not always the best con eerver of national sentiment. The feeling is apt to become eccentric, as was the case of the Scotsman of King William's Town who had a portrait of Mary, Queen of Scots, hung (q his bedroom, and who every morning on rising stretched his hands toward it, crying, "Oh! my mur dered queenl" Once we overheard an enthusiast saying, "My Ain Fireside," "Ye Banks an' Braes." "The Land o' the Leal, eh. a body could be fit to gang to heaven hearing thae sangs rang."
