A chilly November evening tin the western coast of Ireland—a remote, desolate, and cheerless spot, inhabited by some of the most rack-rented im poverished people of that down-trodden nation, the restless ocean blazed with sunset light a white, ghostly vapor rolled inland. A pink glow fell over Kathleen O'Hara's graceful figure as she paused on her way from the town a mile dis tant, and stood on the overhanging cliff, which reached above the white-crested waves below. Nothing could have been more ex quisite than the pure curves of her face, nothing more perfect than the glossy black of her clustering hair. "It is three years ago to-day that he went away," she murmured, "and I have not heard from him since but I cannot think he is dead." She stood alone in the raw wind, haunted by memory of her handsome youDg lover. How many times they had Htood on this cliff together! How many tender things he had said to her here! She should never forget them. Had he forgotten her In that distant land where he had gone to seek his fortune, had he found some one else who had taken her place in his heart? "Was he—so true, so brave, so noble false to her? No—a thousand times, bo—she could not believe it. A heavy step crushed some fragments of rock behind her. She turned and faced the intruder. He was a tall, middle-aged man, with a handsome, though evil-looking face. "I have come to join you in your even ing walk, Kathleen," he said, with meaning in his dirk eyes, as he watched her narrowly. "You need not have come I prefer to be alone," she answered, drawing herself up hanghtlv. "But it is growing late, and you need protector." A look of disgust passed over her face as he spoke the word protector. »As if comprehending the expression, he said, hurriedly: "Have you considered what I said to you? Have you not had enough of this life of poverty and starvation, and are you ready to come with me "No, never! I would rather fling my self into the sea down there than be your mistress, Lord Kildare." An angry gleam shot from Lord Kil dare's eyes. "You think Hugh Moore will return ft rich man, and take you back to Amer ica with him," said he. "A very pretty and romantic idea, surely but such tilings rarely happen in real life. I tell you he is dead, or he would have writ ten. You have not heard from him since he left Ireland." "His letters may have been inter cepted," said Kathleen, significantly. "Nonsense!" said Lord Kildare, un easily, and glancing suspiciously at Kathleen. "I till you he is dead, will give you a week to decide in. If you accept my offer, your parents shall be cared for as long as they live, and your every wish shall be gratified re fuse me, and I will turn you all out of your cabin, and you. will either have to perish miserably in the bogs or go to the work-house." "I will not listen to your insulting (reposition Lord Kildare," cried Kath een, indignantly. "My parents would accept nothing at such a price. Better ieath than a life of shame." And, without another word or even a backward glance, she hastened to her lather's cabin, a few rods distance, leav ing Lord Kildare standing on the cliff, glaring angrily after her. A week had elapsed since the meeting of Lord Kildare and Kathleen on the cliff. It was a dark and stormy even ing. The gale swept along the shore, lashing the water of the pea over the rocks with a sharp, hissing sound, dig sified at times by the sullen roar of the large waves. Dark clouds scudded over head, and rain fell at intervals. It was cold. Mud was everywhere. Along the rough road that followed the shore, a young man struggled •gainst the wind. He was tall, and commanding in bearing, and walked •with a quick, firm tread. A perfect head rose in leonine grandeur above his •quare, burly shoulders his figure was heavy, witn muscles like iron and his Ugly good-natured face was lit by a pair Of blue-grav eyes, which gave token at Once of intellectual power, strength of will, and sympathetic feeling. Presently he paused before a little fliatch-roofed hut—scarce six feet high, »s many broad, and perhaps a dozen fcet in length. It was far too poor and *ude a structure for a sheep-hovel in America. The young man knocked at the door, voice inside bade him enter, and tending almost double, he pushed his way into the cabin. The only occupants fere an aged couple who were hovering 0v«r a small, peat fire. "It is so dark that I fear I shall lose Bqv •4 i way if I try to reach the town to night," said he. "May I stay here till morning?" "Avcoose ye may, an' it's welcome ye •re," came the ready response- from the Aid maa, in the 'Suave voioe of the Irish peasantry. "I would not turn a wolf from me dure on such a night. Git th' bit av box there be th' bed, and sit here air dry yerself be th' fire. How wet y' •re, sure! Nora, take his' overcoat an' frau* it up somewheres." "Kathleen, me daughter, will soon be 1 Uub few* supper wi' us," said the old wife, as she took the coat. "She has gone to see Mike Nolan's sick child." The young man seated himself by himself by the fire, aad spread out the palms of his hands to the blaze. "I hear you are to be turned out, Mr. O'Hara," he said. "We are—an' to-morra, too." "Have you anywhere to go?" "The bog, that's all. Our naybors are as poor as ourselves. Is there no justice in the worl'? Phat have we done to be so punished? When the lpnd w as so bad that ould Lord Kildare—th' prisint Lord Kildare's father—could do nothin' wid it, I asked fur a plot ov ground. He tould me I could settle here, an' that he'd have no rint, th' lan' bein' so bad. Three years later ould Lord Kildare died. I worracked an' worrucked fur eight years, an' whin I got th' little farm gcin', sure, phat happened? I was tould by th' vouug Lord Kildare to pay five years' back rint. Twas th' day before I an' Norn was married, an' full well he knew th' money her fadder was givin' her on her widdin' day would jist pay th' rint. So we gavo all we had t' Lord Kildare on our widdin' day, an' begun life widout a panny. Fur more than twenty years we toiled an' toiled—savin' an' scrapin' an' starvin', but, wid all our work, jist managin' to pay our rint an' kape alive. Lord Kil dare has been married fifteen years, but he pretends that he loves our Kathleen an' because she refuses to be his mis tress, he is goin' to turn us out av our home that we have worked so hard for. Curse him! May his childrep rise against him. May his soul go witherin' down to In his grief and indignation, the old man had failed to notice that the stranger had addressed him by name but the old wife, who had been nar rowly gaziug at the young man's face ever since, now exclaimed: "Faith, I think I've heard yer voice before, but I do not recognize yer features!" Before the yonng man could reply, Ka'lileen entered the cabin. For a mo ment she gazed at the stranger, who had risen to his feet at her entrance, and then springing forward, she fell upon his bosom. "Och, Hugh, Hugh!" she cried, as she threw her arms around his neck. "They told me you were dead. Why did you not write to me The young man clasped her in his arms, and pressed more than one kiss on her willing lips, as he cried, in a glad voice: "My blessings on you, Kathleen. And so you are true to me? I did write, but received no answer to my letters. I have heard how Lord Kil dare has persecuted you and your par ents but your troubles are now at an end. I have made a nice little home for you, darling, in America and your parents shall share it with us." Why Not Be Kind to the Living. This from Harper's Weekly may not be in the bible, but it ought to be: It is an odd thing that no sooner has death claimed our friends for his own than we begin to say and do a multitude of things of little use at all then in com parison to that which they might have been had they come in advance of death. Then out of hand we flock to the house with offers of assistance and proffers of friendship we rob our gardens and our hot-houses and send cut flowers in pro fusion, and funeral wreaths and crosses and pillows and anchors and stars to encumbrance, and do all we can, though late, to hide and disguise and sweeten fate. But if we had flocked to the house while the dead could have been aware of it how much pleasure and excitement and relief from monotonous or lonesome hours our sick friends might have en joyed when all was a tiresome round of day and night and medicine and solitude, when a bunch of flowers brought in would have brought a light to the dull eyes of joy both over the gift and giver, joy which no broken columns of tube roses and ivies, costing small fortunes can bring to the eyes of the dead! Even could we not have been admitted to the sick-room itself, we could have brought there the murmur of the outside world by the mere knowledge given to the patient that we were within the gates, some break, some cheer, some good. Then, too, how profuse we are with our good words after the ears are stop ped with dust. We do not hesitate to say all that is true or even more than is true in praise of the departed. It is as if we had suddenly discovered in the sand a jewel fit for kings to wear we make an outcry and hold it up to the light and turn it this way and that, and exclaim and marvel and admire and call on others to do likewise. There is noth ing to say about this person now that the place once filled is vacant. But il we had said a tenth part of it all when it might have been heard by the living person, of how much more worth it had been! What joy and satisfaction it might have given! The subject of it all might have felt as if satisfied to leave life with such appreciation. But it was not spoken, and life went on without it and now we regret it, and do the same thing over with the next friend. Frankness. The world clamors perpetually for truth, but is it not after all the last thing it cordially embraces? A per fectly frank man is invarablv unpopular, and usually unsuccessful. Yet what is frankness but truth-speaking A frank man is one whose sense of right and wrong is ever at the surface asserting itself. No matter what subject comes up, he expresses the thought that his judgment and conscience approve. The polite course is abhorrent to hiui. He would like to be what the world calls prudent he would like to bite his tongue when it would utter unpopular truth, but a sense of innate manliness makes him stand up for his convections. With him the word honesty has a defi nite meaning. If he sees a corrupt man sitting close to the church altar and conciliating its membership with rich gifts, he points- 'it out, and is re warded by the opposition of that organ ization. If his party commits a cor rupt act, he denounces it, and suffers ostracism as a traitor and disorganizes Yet the man occupies the highest at tainable ground. Perfect frankness seems to be incompatible with worldly success. The man who seeks honestly for truth and proclaims it without fe%r must look beyond this life for apprecia tion and reward .—Texas Si/tings. For Diphtheria. Tar smoke is recommended for a diphtheria cure. The treatment is to put a few drops of tar, like that used in shipyards, on a warm stove lid and to require the patient to inhale and swal low the smoke ten times a day for five minutes each time.

"Why don't you employ female drag clerks asked a Washington reporter of ft druggist the other day. "That has been tried in some cities." was the reply, "and has worked very well but somehow female drug clerks have not yet become a fixture in Wash ington. I never had but one applica tion for a position by a woman, and she was a graduate of a Chicago college of pharmacy. I didn't employ her, not because I had any objection to taking a female clerk, but because I had no va cancy. I don't know of but one drug gist in the city who has employed a woman behind his counter, and she was at the soda fountain." "Is she still there?" asked the re porter, thinking that with the advent of warm weather the soda fountain was fully ripe. "No, I don't think she was a success. I've no doubt she attended to her du ties, but you know men are peculiar. Some like to kick and swear at the clerk, and they can't do that at a wo man." "But the regular business of com pounding prescriptions," said the re porter. "Can't a woman do that as well as a man "I see no reason why she shouldn't. Sihe is quick and apt to acquire knowl edge, she has a good memory, is care fnl in making her measures, and can certainly make the pills, powders or so lutions that may be ordered. A woman, too, is naturaily neat and would be of value so far as the fancy articles usually for sale in a drug store goes. But don't you know a drug clerk's life is an awful hard one? I stay in this store from 9 o'clock in the morning until after midnight, and I am on my feet nearly all the time. Now, that would be very wearing on a woman, and I doubt if many of them have' the physical endurance to stand such a tour of duty day in and day out right through the year. "Still," he continued as the reporter jotted down some notes, "I have no doubt that many women, if they should graduate in pharmacy, could manage a drug store as successfully as a man— more so than a good many men —but then she would have a male clerk, and don't you forget it." "Why so?" "Because she would put more confi dence in a man than she would in one of her own sex. That's the way with women. But there is one other difficulty that stands in the way of a woman's success as a drug clerk. By a great many peo ple we are considered in the light of a physician, and men and women, too, consult us just the same as they would a regular doctor. The majority of women have not as much confidence in a female as in a male physician, even in regard to their own peculiar ailments. I don't know that this should be so, but it is, and you see how it would op erate against a female drug clerk so far as her own sex is concerned, while men, of course, would not consult her at all. All these obstacles may be removed in time, and we may have female drug clerks, but it will not be this year." An Industrious Squirrel. A Danbury farmer points to the squir rel as affording an instance of agility, quickness, and hard work. Last fall he stored several bushels of butternuts in the second story of his corn house, and recently he noticed that they were dis appearing much faster than the legiti mate demands for his family supply warranted. He discovered soon after ward that a small red squirrel had found a hole under the eaves of the building, and was stocking her store-house with the nuts the farmer had gathered. As an experiment to learn how rapidly the squirrel had worked, he removed all but twenty of the nuts and set a watch upon them. Six hours later every nut was gone. The distance from the corn house to the tree where the squirrel had its nest was just eighty rods. In going for a nut and returning with it the sprightly little animal had to travel a distance of one hundred and sixty rods. Computation showed that the theft of the twenty nuts required just ten miles of travel. But this did not include" all. Several times dogs fright ened the squirrel, and it had to turn back, and twice the family cat got after it, requiring it to take a circuitous route to reach the store-house. The nest was examined soon afterward, and a big, fat, lazy male squirrel was found snoozing quietly while his little mate was per forming prodigious feat to supply him with food. The Parson Was Bight After All. Elder Thompson, the famous Univer salist preacher who died some years ago, was once asked to marry a couple whose religious views were at variance with his own. After the ceremony the bridegroom expressed his entire satis faction with the service. "I don't see," he said, "that you could have done it any better if you'd believed in a hell." A little theological discussion followed, in which Elder Thompson advanced the idea that "a man, gets his hell in' this world." Two years after Father Thomp son-met the man again. "You remember you married me?" the man said. "Yes." "And that I said I hoped it would be just as happy a marriage as if you be lieved in a hell?" "You said something like that." "And that you said some folks got all their hell in this world?" "I might have said so." "Parson, you was right"—Lewis ton Journal. Ihe Inventor of the Barbed Wire Fence. The barbed wire patents, which have netted fortunes to their owners, have an interesting history. The first patents were issued to a man named Kelly, living down east. About two years later a farmer at DeKalb, 111., conceived the idea of keeping his unruly cattle in the pasture by putting short barbs on a, wire and then twisting it with a plain wire. This is know in the market as the Oidden wire, being named after its inventor, Joseph F. Gidilen. One day while he was out experimenting with it a neighbor going by shouted: "Joe, you better be out harrerin' in your oats instead of fool in' away your time with patents!" Gidden thought otherwise, and in less than two years received a bonus of $00,000 with the guarantee of a royalty on all made under his patents. In one year his royalties exceeded $174, 000.

Adam's position at college wai not due to his father's bank account. By the sweat of his.own brow, he knew how much every dollar meant in time and toil. Eve's position was not due to an aristocratic boarding place nor to ex ceptionally well-fitting clothes. It was due to the fact that she had demon strated her power to think and to do in the great thinking and doing world around her. To-day, they graduate side by side in the presence of the great throng that gather at commencement. I do not thi-ik Adam and Eve received as many bouquets as some of the others, but the ones they did receive were all the sweater. And now what shall they do? Adam has nothing Eve has nothing. They marry, and go out into the world with college debts behind them and borrowed money in their pockets—rich only in love and hope and youth. She will not spend weary days think ing of the far-away lover. He will not struggle into a profession and forget his old love in a more advantageous new one. Side by side they toil. How rich they feel w hen the first month's wages come in to pay for the modost outfit of a rented cottage! How greenback.-, ac cumulate month after month and go back to pay off those old college scores! And how quickly it is all paid! Two make so much more than one as teach ers, clerks, or toilers anywhere. And then they never know those desolate, heart-aching hours that might have been theirs' had their paths diverged. They shudder at the thought. A little baby comes before Adam gets into his profession. Then they wonder how they ever kept house without that boy. Heaven's choicest blessings do not cost a fortune. It hardly seems to make a break in the plans, for Adam goes off to law school and takes Eve and baby, too. They rent two rooms and keep house, at less expense than the boys can board, and, at his own pure fireside, Adam never feels the temptations that carry off so many of the lads. There is no great stock of money ahead, but they never want. When baby sleeps, Eve, the mother, becomes again Eve, the scholar, at the side of her classmate husband. Out into the world they go. Step by step they rise. Adam is a power on the bench, and his influence is felt in church and city. And ever at his side .is a stately woman with noble sons around her—one of the many, many Cornelias of our republic. Yankee Blade. Another Robinson Crusoe. A curious story has been told by Prof. Lee, who accompanied as natural ist, an expedition to the South Pacific Ocean. Years ago the Ecuador Gov ernment planted a convict colony on Charles Island, one of the Galapagos group. The convicts revolted, killed the Governor and escaped, leaving be hind pigs, cattle, donkeys, and horses. Since that time no one was thought to live there and at Chatham Island, an other of the group, the exploring party were told that Charles Island was en tirely deserted. They were, therefore, rather surprised when they visited Charles Island to come upon a man nearly naked, carrying a pig on his back. He was quite as surprised as they, and was at first in great fear, but finally they got him to talk. His hair and beard had grown to great length and he had lost all notion of time. He said that some years before he had came from Chatham Island with a party in search of a certain valuable moss that he had deserted his compan ions, who had come off without him, and that since that time he had been alone on the island. He had lived on fruit and herbs, had captured wild cat tle by setting traps for them, killed them with a spear made by tying his pocket-knife to a stick, and from their hides made a hut. He was glad to see men again and asked to be taken back to Chatham Island, which was granted, of course.—London Saturday Jour nal. Grit of a Crippled Soldier. A pitiful illustration of the determina tion and grit animating the old soldiers of the Confederacy was recently wit nessed in the Governor's office in At lanta, Ga. John M. Varnadoe, of Tel fair County, came in on crutches to ap ply for a pension. His left leg was off above the knee, the right foot was stiff ened out perfectly straight and his hands were very rongh and horny. Mr. Varnadoe is an illiterate farmer, and being unable to write his name made his cross taark to the application. After he received his order for Mow the Average Woman Swims. The majority of the fair pupils swim with their arms only, and if they do kick, the force of their stockinged soles is lost on the air. Instead of drawing the legs up under the body as a good maleswimmer doerf, the feminine pu pil bends the leg at the knee, so that the lower parts of the limbs rise grace fully above the surface of the water at every stroke and then drop back with a thud, as if part of the roof of the bath house had fallen in. The effect of this innovation is most exhilarating, '•es pecially to the disinterested spectators. In proportion to their size, women have heavier heads and smaller lungs than men and as lung power has much to do with a swimmer's buoyancy, a wo man has a tendency in the water to pitch head downward. This conforma tion of her body, too, helps this unpleas ant tendency, so that when she aggra vates the trouble by kicking her heels out of the water she looks like a duck diving for dams San Francisco Chronicle. Neahly The Ruling Passion. Incongruous incidents have come to light in great numbers amid the hor rors and tearful scenes at Johnstown. Their incongruity—little bits of curi ous color against a hideously black background—seems to justify the tell ing of some of them. For instance, two days after the flood had devastated Johnstown, Mr. Oliver 8. Richardson, the Pittsburg attorney, was serving out clay pipes and tobacco, which some kind-hearted soul had sent out among the relief stores, when a young woman presented herself before him. The line, of course, had been made up of men prior to this, and Mr. Richardson asked the girl, who was extremely pretty and re fined in appearance, what she wanted with a pipe. "Why, do you smoke?" said Mr. Richardson. "No, but ]lease give me a pipe." "If you will tell me what you are go ing to do with it, I'll give you one." The girl hesitated, and then raising her had to her bangs, which hung limp over her forehead, she said, "I want to curl these." She got the stem of a broken pipe and went away laughing, and yet she had only been rescued twenty-four hours from the wreck at the bridge, was almost on the verge of starvation, and when she sought the pipe to curl her bangs was evidently badly in need of clothing.—Pittsburg Dispatch.
