He told Vanderbecken that tbe thing just resolved Itself Intc bringing bim over to the American side of tbe Detroit river, still It might cost good deal to get bim over. 'How much ?" said tbe merchant. "I don't know," said the chief cautiously. bow macb ould you giveto bars Weston here In Chicago?" The merchant thought for a few moments. "Well," be said at last, "I'd give $5000 to see bim convicted." "We can't promise conviction, yon know, but we can land him here, and tbe rest will remain with you and the courts. I don't want you to be money out if pocket, but if yoo guarantee onr expenses, hit or miss, and the $5000 if It is bit, I'll send man that I think can produce Westboff here." To this tbe merchant assented, and tbe con ference ended. Tbres days after this a young msa with a valise supported by a leather strap over bis sbonldcr, wrote "John Drayton, St Louis," on he bulky register of the Crockton house.

Next morning, as Westbofl looked over tbe paper rack at tbe fflceat tbe Crockton bouse, be saw a letter addressed to Mr John Dray ion ana on tne corner oi tne envelope was printed : Return In ten dsys to MiTCAX Detective Aobnot.

A little moist ure judiciously applied, put bim in possession o' tiie letter, wmcn read : Mt Deak Willis: Old Van is getting im patient. He is here every aay now, and says be wants results.

That evening Brownly nuked the landlord if tbey could have an npper room for a little bout with gloves a room away from tbe rest of the inhabited rooms where tbey conld have some fun without disturbing anyi ne.

Afier a few playful taps on the shoulder and different parts of bis upper anatomy, Drayton suddenly received a bin that mane him tbink tbe universe had collapsed. He staggered blindly and .ell. Rising to bis teethe got a thumper square in tbe lace that enured tbe blood to flow, and another on the bide of tbe bead that laid bim flat, again. Dazed, be reached around to bis revolver pocket, then tried to tear i ff bis gloves. Rising to his feet Westboff promptly laid bim on the floor again. All this time not word was spoken by specta tors or actors. Drayton, grinding his teet'i iu bis fury, put bis loot on the point of bis glove and tore bis band out. He drew his revolver, but was instantly overpowered and the weapon taken iroin bun. Westboff stood pauting wuile Brownly undid bis gloves. "Stand up, you whelp!" cried WesthofT, and as Drayton backed into tbe corner before bim Westbotf showered blow after blow on bliu witu bis naked lists, till tbe unfortunate detective sank insensible to tbe floor.

This was not dif ficult, for no one ever knew Mm long without loving htm. Among them all be found no one so congenial as Garfield. Although thcvdllcred diametrically In mnt things, yet they had much In common. Garfield was a big brained big hearted hoy, hi s enthusiasm tempered only by bis culture Morally weak and nntit ted by natme and by education for politics, be was socially a most charming coinr-aulon, and intellectually a rarely well cultivated man Tucker was personally as delightful as Gar- (lcW, excelling litis in his ability to fell a good story, and was intellectually his peer In every rcspiict. At the same timo he was morally strong, as honest as he was fcm'les, although he was no better eouinued fur political life than Garfield. Of course their politic! views d Iff ired in toto. Tucker w.i a state rights man : u.tr- Hekl was a nationalist. Tucker was a revenue reformers Garfield, though at heart be was a revenue rel'uimer, bowed to tbe will of the par ty bosses and avowed himself a protectionist, Hut one dav. after their friendship ba-i become a tact, uartleld came over to Tuckers desk on the jjdinocrattc side ol tbe Honse ana said : "Tucker, yoa know I am a protectionist, but I want that tbore should he free trade hereafter between yoa and me in matters literary." "With all my heart," responded Tocker, and from tbat time to the day of Garfield s death tbey were the closest friends. They both loved literature all letters, ancient and modern, but perhaps most ot ait, the ureeK ana L,aun clas sics. Every day they managed to steal time irom even tbe most engrossing of their legisla tive duties for an excursion into those ever biooming fields. Sometimes tbey met in the library, sometimes tn a committee room, or again on tue fl-iur of tbe House itself. Rather an odd growth In such a volcanic soil. Tucker relates that once, during one of these expedi tions info tbe classic s 'jades, Gai field asked bim whether be knew where our natioual mot to, "E Pluribus Unum," came from. Tucker was obliged to admit tbat be did not. "Weil," said Garfield, "it come from a description tn Horace ot tue preparation ot a itoman saiau, and he turned to it. Sure enough, there was a 1st of the Ingredients, with the remark that tbe product was "E Pluritius Unani," "one of many," "I hope yon observe, fucker." said Nationalist Garfield, "that the product was 'one' 'uiium.'" "Yes," said State rights Tucker, "and I hope you ohservo, Garfield, that it was 'of many. 'E Pluribus.' " So botu got a laugh out of it. This pleasant literary partnership continued np to tbe time tbat Gai field was nom inated for tbe p.esiilency. Then came the cam paign, tbe lull iwtweeti the election and inaug uration, tbe feverish Conkling episode and Guit- chu's bullet. Tbe old friends met again and and again during that hurried last year, but they never resumed their pleasant diversions a mong their books. No one mourned Garfield more sincerely than bis friend Tucker, and no ono among all bis friend- could better discharge tbe trust wbicb Mrs Gai field bas laid upon bim.

"Literary Characters," bas an interesting chapter upon tbe subject. He ascribes some of tbe conspicuous blemishes of several great compositions to the domestic in felicities of their authors. Thus the desultory life of Camoens is perceptible in tbe deficient connection of bis epic, and Milton s blindness and divided family prevented tbat castigating criticism which otherwise had erased passage? which cscaned his mvUinir.

On tbe other band, there are many pleasant instances of bappy literary marriages. Wioland's wife was a comfortable and affectionate woman ; she knew ber hus band sras a great poet without reading bis books. Bnffon, tbe great naturalist, wrote of his wife : "Often, when I cannot please myself and am impatient at tbe disappointment, Mme de Buffon reanimates my txertion or withdraws me to repose, and I return to my pen refreshed and aided by ber advice." Gessner declared tbat whatever his talents might le, tbe person w ho had most contnbniea to develop tbem was his wile.

M de Tocqueville pays a deiiiibitul compliment to bis wife in one of bis letters. "I could not," be says, "go on wiib my task, If It were not for tbe refreshing calm of Marie's companionship.

Some powerful facts were also brought lornard from experiments made with dois and rabbits. Two weeks confinement in llliected ciiiupanmems caused these animals to become futile and sickly, the cutaneous nerves becoming inflamed and cuaied with a species uf bacteria.
