" Ty F. RICHARDSON Pj Caaa for Bide. Calf Skin, and Shoe Palta. Brattlaiwr, Oct It, 18". On the trunk of a fallen tree, in the depths of afirwood, not many miles from the Castle of the Slarnberfi, a man sat, one summer twilight, with a flute to his lips. Over the peaks of the Bavarian Alps a storm was gathering. The con scious foiest groaned in all its multitudi nous branche .. Far off, one could hear the brawl of torrents, the whistle of goatherds, the echo of convent-bells. As for the man, he was young, and handsome as an archangel. His hat was tossed upon the turf beside hiui his rich hair hung in confusion about his pale, dreamy face. Eyes, marvelous in their pensive splendor, shone from under his knitted brows. Heedless alike of falling night and coming tempest, be was hug ginic the flute an exquisite ins rument, of silver and ebony to his lips with tbe rapt air 01 a devotee. A wayward trill the yduth had at his flnuer-ends a brilliant bubble of sweet sound bent upon bursting into airy, tan talizing failures. Nevertheless, he prac ticed patiently, coaxing the sweet, swarm ing notes in an absorbed, impassioned way, till, ot a sudden, a hand raised the boughs behind him held them open for a luce to look through. In a twinkling, the trill was anutched rrom the lipaot trie player, from the rpel low throat uf the flute, and tossed Into the air by a clear, audacious voice a girl's voice, without a flaw whirled gid dily up into the gathering dark, and dropped again, sudden and short, auown its silence. The youth leaped to his feet. Standing beside him, under the black firs, he saw a figure in a white bo, lice and short blue kirtle, the stiver buckles on her shoes, and a silver chain, with the massive clasps the Bavarian peasant loves, shining on her milky throat and bosom. Her brown, fawn-like eyes were fixed with a startled, timid look on his face. Far be low the belt of her trim bodice streamed the broad plaits of her blonde hair. "By my faith, that was well done!' cried the flute-player, half extending his hand to seize and hold her before she could escape him ; "who learned you that trill, my pretty maiden ?" She seemed about to fly, but his smile, his reassuring gesture, restrained her. "The birds on the mountains, she an swered with a little laugh. "Heavens! you have a voice like an angel !" he burst out. "Who are you, snd what are you doing in this lonely iorest at this hour?" She flung him a quick, coquettish glance through the sleek lashes that swept over her dark, deer-like eyes. "I am Slarie," she answered, making a little courtesy "the daughter of Max, tbe forester. I came to the tir-wood to find my father's kids. Hark !" A peal of thunder broke suddenly out of the dark above them. It crashed with a deafening roar through the great soli tude. Immediately a rush of rain fol lowed, smiting full upon the tw. "As I live," cried the youth, in some consternation, "ihe storm is upon us, ami I have lost my way in this wilderness ! Tell me, pretty Marie, cpn I find a shel ter near r "Follow me, she anowered, and d (Shed into a narrow gnat-track leading off and awy under the black branches. Waning for notmng more nesiroae al ter. The rain poured upon them, as if all the windows of heaven were opened. Bed streaks of lightuing flashed through the gloom. Breathlessly they hastened on till they came to a torrent leaping down a steep, its foam and fury spanned bv a Binele fallen fir, which stretched across it from bank to bank. ' Give me your hand," said Marie. She looked back at her companion through her streaming blonde hair with a face which seeined to him like some lumin ousstsr. "1 will lead you. A falw step on this trunk might be your death." Eagerly he obeyed. Her dim pled palm closed upon his. She leai ed upon the dangerous britige, drawing him swiftly after. Directly they flood in the pour ing rain on the opposite side. Come!" cried Marie, "yonder i my father' cottaiie!" And running breath lessly across a green opening, where tne kids she bad driven from the wood stoo l huddled together, she lifted lh forester's "Enter," she saH, and her companion followed her in silence across the thresh old. , , , The fir-rafters of Ihe room were black with smoke. On the open hearth below . -I,..,, tins burned. Amtinst the wall stood ti:e spinning-wheel and a bench, covered with tanuled wool. Ihe small windows shook with the violeuce of the tfnnet outside. Marie's companion advanced lo the hearth, chilled, soaked and Dreamless. "8 r," iiidfhe,"sit dow n and welcome. I aee that you lire some burgher's son. What iyiur name?'' He looked confused. "Oill me Lndwig," he answered. "I am not a burgher's ton, pretty Mane, but a poor muttician from S'arnberg. separat ed from some feiemls who were wander ins with me in the fore.t. With ronr tiermisaion I will rest here till the storm is over, and then set forth to meet iheni. An old toniMi, whom the fores'er's daughter called Gn tohon, with a goitre on her neck, and a parti-colored mm w I CTONM-d on her breest entered, nd began to prepare the evening meal. This con sisted of black bread, goat' milk, a little baron, and k-nmckru-vrM a card, sniok-d aautage.

The moonlight fell in patches along the path, in silence Marie irossea tne green opening, and descended 1 Steep track un til they came to the torrent. Then she stopped she started back. "Look ! ah, look I" she cried, and point ed to the fall, now a terrific thing of foam and thunder and shattering spray, roar ing under and over the solitary fir-tree which spanned the chas n from bank to bank.

Mid way across it his nnXv.ttomeil foot slip ped suddenly. He fit'" out his arm, caught a treacherous bough that bent like a reef lo his hau l, and fell, and went over with a stilied cry. There, above the frightful chasm, he hung sus pended, enoimously k' g, holding only to that slim, swaying branch. "Merciful God!" shrieked Mane, and turned back, quick as thought, upon the dripping trunk, and, lea ung low, like an Undine in the flying spray, seized him by the shoulders. "Ho d fast!" she en ed, straining wi'h ull her generous young strength ; hold fast for your life ! Oh, Mother of mercy, help now I' With a tremendous etrort, she dragged him upward within reach of the wet trunk. Supported bv her strong young arms, he erasped it convulsively, and up heaving his hodv to its slippery leng h, crawled slowly "along it to the opposite bank. "Ah," shuddered Mie, drawing a broken breath, "that was a narrow escape ! Fritz, the goatherd, lost his life in llns verv place but a veax-Ugu" . He stood panting and pale with his struggle, and drenched 10 the skin. ' But for vou I might have shared his fate," said fie. "How shall I thank you."

"Farewell!" answered Herr Ludwig, regarding her steadfastly, but not at leiii.ting to touch so much as ber hand. "Farewell, Marie ; we shall meet airam." "Ah, no!" she sighed; "you wilksoon forget me." , , ... "Never!" he answered, and waved his white hand, and, like some magnificent dream, plunged into the forest, and dis appeared from her gate. When Max. tiie forester, returned to his dwelling that night, lie found Mane sitting pensively in the chimney-corner. her li nn.la nlnita streaming down hr hosom, the firelight plaving on her pale face.

It stood in a wood of beech and clientnut. facing a DurDle lake. Gar dens surrounded it, full of cascades, costly exotica, luscious. thickets, rare vine and plants. Within, a princely luxury pre vailed. Superb pictures and statuary met one at every turn ; draperies of silk and velvet, costly carpets and magnificent upholstery. That the King's generosity had provided all these things, the Ger man people well knew. ine great musician s ereedv grasmng at favors, and his overweening pride, had iduui-ici iiwu uuuuiigus 111 uieir main forced him, indeed, to leave Nymphen burg for his borne in Switzerland. "Here, in my household, you will live. said Wagner to Marie. "You will see no one but my servants and myself you will think of nothing but study. I pre dict a great future for you. It is your voice which will some day interpret to this dull Germany 10 the world the music which I write, not for the present, but for the future." In her heart Mane thought how dear Herr Ludwig must be to this man, since in every room of the chateau his face hung his splendid pictured face, with the soft romantic features, the dreamy poet eyes, the flowing hair, which she remembered only too well. For a vear alter Wagner s visit to tne forester's cottage, the good Bavarians heard but little of the unpopular cora- fioser. It was whispered in Munich that le was living in great seclusion, devoting himself exclusively to a pupil of extraor. dinary promise, who was to make her debut either in the Court-chapel or in one of Wagner's own operas at the royal theatre, it was whispered, lurtnermore, that her genius and her personal beauty wrre alike wonderful, and that she lived like a nun with the old musician his constant companion, but secluded utterly from the outer world. All this was auite true. A year of lire- less study developed in Wagner's young charge such talent as amazed even the old master. He loved her with that in stinctive love which attracts genius to genius. He put rich garments on her. and seemed to draw from her living, breathing loveliness a deeper inspiration than he had ever dene from rare painting or flower. She shared the weary vigils he ptid to his art. He confided to her his dreams, his idealities He called her daughter she called him father. Her velvety skin lost the soft brown of the mountain sun, and became like snow. She grew tall and marvelously lovely, like the sumptuous day-lilies blooming in the chateau gardens. Meanwhile she never once saw Herr Ludwig, nor did Wagner ever mention his name in her presence. One Summer night Marie sat in a mul lioned window of Wagner's music-room, gazing out into the dark of the chestnut wood. The moon shone above the moun tains; the air was heavy with the per fume of flowers. As she looked down on a terrace below, where, during all the warm months, coffee and wint were served afier dinner, she saw pacing back and forth there, in the shadow of the trees Herr Wagner and another figure, tall and handsome, wrapped close ly in a military cloak. Her heart gave a great bound, and then seemed to stand still. He walked by the side of the old com poser, his hand resting with familiar ten derness on Wagner's ahoulder. They were talking earnestly and in low voices Marie heard now and then the echo of her own name dropped in the pause. With flii ting color, with quickened breath, that came like perfume through tha red blossos of her lips, she watched tht pair. He of the mi I i tary cloak piused beneat h the window and looked up. The moon light sUnted upon his pale, handsome face. It waa Herr Ludwig. He stood for some momenta, gating in tantlv upward. The deep vine that swayed about the window sheltered her from his view. Presently a deep, aionate sigh broke from his lint. He turned and disappeared among the chest nut trees, and he saw him no more. "He would not ty to speak to much as a word to me !" murmured Marie, and she hid her face in her long blonde hair snd wept The next nieht at she sat at tnpper witn Wagner in that wilderness of beauty which he called garden the cascade! rippling, the thickets tbont them on fire witn bloom, a step crushed through the fi .wert, and Herr Ludwif stood before tht two. other. Marie lifted her head. "Would the beautiful vounz King marry one whom he did not love ?" she said. "He is too noble for that. I am sure. And tbe princess is she lovely? she good? will she make our sovereign nappy t" Ludwig left his friend to answer these questions, "She is pretty and piquant," said Wag ner, "and good, too, I dare say, since the yueen-motlier and the nobles pronounce flianer lie prayea again, " do vou not Know mv voice t Tne h-ing has gone you will see him no more. You will soon forget this unhappy passion. I will not leave you alone. 0n otien tome !" No reply. The clock struck midnight in tne nan oeiow; then all was still, Thrilling with indefinable terror, Herr Wagner tiling open the door violently. and rushed into the chamber of his pupil. A cottage piano stood in one corner, over which a bronze lamp burned. At this instrument she sat, her head fallen her such. My child, a year ago Herr forward upon the keyB.

A Maohlne That Measures Tboug-hts. A machine has been invented by Doc. tor M38SO, of Turin, which measures thought It is called theplethysmograph, and its revelations are based on the fact that thought creates nervous action, which consume in its performance a cer tain quantity of blood, and that quantity may be measured. In an address before the American Association of Science, Professor G. F. Barker describes the machine and its working as follows: The forearm, for example, being the organ to be experimented on, is placed in a cylinder of water, and tightly in closed. A rubber tube connects the in terior of the cylinder witb the recording apparatus. With the electric circuit by which the stimulus was applied to pro duce contraction were two keys, one of which was a dummy. It was noticed that, after using the active key several times. producing varying current strengths, the curve sank as before, on pressing down the inactive Key. oince no real effect was produced, tbe result was caused solely by tbe imagination, blood passing from the body to the brain in tne act. To test further the effect of mental ac tion, Doctor Pagliani, whose arm was in the apparatus, was requested to multiply two hundred and sixty-seven by eight mentally, and to make a sign when he bad finished. The recorded curve showed verv distinctly how much more blood the brain took to perform, the operation. Hem the plethysmograph is capable of measuring the relative amount oi mental power required by different persons to work out the same mental problem. In deed, Mr. Gaskell suggests the use of this instrument io the examination room, to find out in addition to the amount of knowledge a man possesses, how much effort it causes him to produce any par ticular result of brain-work. Doctor Mosso relates that, while the apparatus was set up in his room i n Turin, a classical man came in to see him. He looked very contemptuously upon if, and asked of what use it could be, saying that it couldn't do anvbody any good. Doctor Mosso' replied: "Well, now, I can tell you by that whether you read Greek as easilv as yoa can Latin." As the classicist would not believe it his own arm was put iuto the appaiatus, aud he was given a Latin book to read. A very slight sinking of the curve was the result The Latin book was th"in taken away, and a Greek book waa given to him. This produced immediately a much deeper curve. iit had asserted before that it was quite at easy for him to read Greek as Latin, and that there was no difficulty in doing either. Doctor Mosso, however, m able to show him that he wat labor ing under a delusion. Again, this apparatus is so sensitive as to be useful for ascertaining how much a person is dreaming. When Dr. Pagliani went lo sleep in the apparatus, the effect upon the resulting curve was very marked indeed. Ht said afterward that he had been in a sound sleep, and remembered nothing of what Tjassed in the room that be had been absolutely unconscious ; and yet, every little movement in the room such as tha slammibg of a door, the barking of a dog, and even tbe knock ing down of piece of glass, were all maiked oa the curves. Sometime he moved his lips, and gave other evidence that he wat dreaming. They were ail recorded on tbe carve, the amount of blood required for dreaming diminishing that ia the extremitiea.
