The Coventry Machinist Co., makers of the Swift bicycles, have been in the business 33 years and have made up wards of 115,000 bicycles. The com pany haa had a wide experience and every purchaser of a " Swift " cycle profits by it in getting a machine first class in every respect. Bicycling is not only pleasurable but healthful. Taken in proper doses and regularly it is not only a preventive but a cure of "many ills that llesh is heir to," and withal pleasanter to take than doctors' medicines. It will not set a broken leg but it will surely jut more corpuscles into the blood. Alter a careful investigation of the leading bicycles, I bought a "Swil't" for my own riding, and being convinced with use that it is the equal of any ma chine made, I have consented to take the agency and am pleased to oiler these wheels to intending purchasers. Can make specially low prices on two or three wheels slightly shopworn, but as good as new. These are now at my office and are great bargains.

R.LlPPICOTf J ICONTINTJED.J And now to tmtiK tnat, after all, he could have no moment at her side this dayl To think that Farquhar should have ordered them out tor Hours or pot tering around at saddlebags, nosebags, side lines, lariats, picket pins and all that sort of truck I It was simply bar barous. He curbed his tongue as well as he knew how, for plainly he saw that his chums were mischievously exulting over him, but any one who knew Brew ster could see his wrath and discom fiture. The announcement was made just before luncheon was over. The ad jutant came bolting in with the order, and shutting his ears to the chorus of expletives. "What time did you say boots and saddles would sound?" fiarcely demanded Randolph. "In a quarter of an hour; so you've no time to waste saying swear words or asking damn fool questions. And as fcr you, Curly, you're for guard tomorrow." Brewster finished his cup of tea in an undignified gulp, quitting the table and the room in three strides. There was just time to" scurry over to Berrien's and see her for five minutes before he had to jump back to his quarters and into riding boots, etc. Any pretext would answer the dance tonight, for instance. "Get my field rig ready at once and bring my horse up here in ten minutes, he called to his servant, slashed at his natty uniform with a whisk broom and bounded out of the door, only to en counter the man of all others he least cared to see coming in. "Were you just going, Biewster? There is a matter I want very much to ask you about, and I thought this the time to catch you without fail." The voice was that of Captain Rolfe. "I am just going out, captain, and I'm hurried, but if you will step in I'll be back in ten minutes." "Well-l, ordinarily, I would not de tain you, and-d, pardon me, if you were going to Major Berrien's, they are all at luncheon. I have just left there." Brewster flushed in spite of his effort at control. His first impulse was to say he was going over anyhow, if only to leave word, but, since he could not hope to see her, what was the use? It chafed him, however, to note that Rolfe, in that calmly superior way of his, was pressing on into the hall, as much as to say, "It is my will that you give up what you have in view and attend at once to my behest," just as though Brewster were still his second lieutenant, instead of nt Brewster, commauuing iiie "Black worse troop. It must be confessed that there was about Rolfe an intangible something that ever seemed to give that impression to the juniors. It was one of the things that set their teeth on edge, as they expressed it, and set them against him. Feeling as he did toward the captain and exasperated at me way in which events seemed conspir ing against him, Brewster threw open his door. "Walk in, as I said, captain. Make yourself at home. I wish to go into Haddock's a moment, and will be right back." It wasn't that he had anything to say to Haddock, but Haddock had succeeded him as second lieutenant of Rolf e's troop,' and was no fonder of his stern, self willed commander than Cur ly himself had been. It was simply that he would not yield a moral victory to Rolfe, and that in naming Haddock he knew he gave at least a slight return for the annoyance afforded him by the captain's.untimely call. Giving no 6ign whatever as Brewster sprang away down the steps the captain passed on into the plainly furnished sit ting room. Already McCann was busy hauling out the lieutenant's field boots, breeches and overcoat, whisking off the dust and indulging in Milesian comment as he did so. At sight of Rolfe he abruptly ceased, bustled forward and offered the captain a chair, and a mo ment later bolted across the hall to per form similar services in overhauling and dusting Mr. Randolph's possessions. Left to himself, Rolfe wearily turned to the mantel, and without show of in terest glanced over the various photo graphs there displayed. They Tfr'erj mainly of army friends, young fellows in whom he felt slight interest at any time and none at all now. So were those in the basket on the round table. Brew ster was popular, if one were to judge by the array of pictures that had been sent to him by their prototypes. Then there was a large, handsome album lying open on the desk near the window. Turning listlessly thither Rolfe gave a shrug, of the shonlders, something al most like shudder, at sight of the pho tograph which lay uppermost, a cabinet portrait, highly burnished and finished, of an exuberant woman in evening dress. In that neighborhood everybody knew her by. sight. He himself had received invitations in her hand to lunch or to dinner. Ho knew the writing of the note that lay beside the album, first page uppermost. He would have had no eyes at all had he not seen the "Carroll, nion ami," with which it began. With a shiver of disgust he whirled over a page of the album, as though to cover and hide the beguiling face, the betraying words, and then Brewster came bound ing back and in. Rolfe's hand was still on the album as he turned to face him. The eyes of the two men met, and again Brewster flushed hotly. He re membered that only in the morning's mail had the large packet arrived con taining this unasked for and unexpected addition to his portrait, gallery. He had not opened it until after court had not more than glanced at the photograph even then, beautiful as it was from an artistic point of view. Then that note, and that idiotic, semisentimental begin ning! Sho had never called him Car roll, but in certain evasive, insinuating, in well, we have no word for it in all the vocabulary of the United States in a way he could not but see and could not find a way to object to, she had been lately verging in that direction. It was, "Now, Mr. Carroll Brewster," or "my good friend Carroll," or "Sir Carroll," or in some way Carroll; but here was an out and out Carroll, the first of the kind. A month before he might not have flinched; now he shrank from the mere idea of familiarity of the faintest kind. He had been striving to cut loose from her in every possible way, but hers was a friendship that "clung closer than a brother," and just as sure as shooting Rolfe must have seen that infernal pic ture, those misleading words. Brewster read it in Rolfe's calm brown eyes, but he would not discuss matters with him, much less stoop to explain, XoMpANTYtAtJP. PliBLI5fJEP' 5Y SPECIAL maiklr.ElAFMT with IrtrH . "You wish fo see me, captain. Will 3011 take a seat?"

"I was in hopes you would assure me of a readiness to answer. Whatsoever have been the differences between us in the past, you can never accuse me of having pried into your affairs, and the question 1 wish to ask is one of deep im portance to myself, and its answer can not, 1 believe, unpleasantly involve you." And 6till Brewster stood silent, the blue eyes looking straight into the brown. "1 will not prolong matters unnecessa rily. What 1 desire to know, Mr. Brew ster, is this: Have you or have you not 80111U knowledge of the past history of Sergeant Ellis?" "Pardon me, Captain Rolfe, but I do not see how that can concern you in the least." "1 have stated substantially that it did," was the quiet reply, after a mo ment's thought. . "It concerns mo very deeply. I need to know something of his antecedents. 1 have reason to ask, and 1 repeat my question." There was a painful pause. Then Brewster spoke firmly: "Captain Rolfe, it is a question I re fuse to answer," CHAPTER IV. "And now, Carroll, will you take me ta the carriage;'" That night, despite the long hours in the saddle, the young officers had bidden tttetr Trady frieuus to an riiformal dance In the hoproom. It was just a week after Nita Guthrie's adventure, and al ready, except in the thoughts of two or three men, that strange affair was a thing of the past People had settled down to an acceptance of her own ex planation of the cause, not that it was entirely satisfactory, bnt because no other seemed plausible. Just why a girl should have been rendered nervons and npset because she had had a proposal, Mrs. Vance of course could not under stand "especially," said she, "a girl who was reputed to have had so many offers." It was laughingly remarked by various military benedicts that since the moment when Miss Guthrie's scream of terror had appalled the garrison the dames and damsels of their several households had shown an unwonted de gree of timidity in visiting about tho post after night'all, and that much more than the traditional amount of hunting behind enrtains and nnder bedsteads was now going on. Berrien was especially jocular, and more than ever disposed to tell his cronies in her presence that Berengaria had said this or Berengaria had done that, the thi or that being something more than usually absurd or improbable. But in the conversations held of late in the sanctity of Berengaria's boudoir the major had been anything but jocular. There was one incident of that evening that had caused him deep perplexity. He had never for a moment forgotten his wife's allusions to Winifred Wini fred, the apple of his eye. The possi bility of her having lost her young heart to, or even having come to feel more than passing interest in, Carroll Brew ster was something that troubled him far more than he cared to admit. Like many another father he had gone on fancying hTs daughter only a child one to whom the idea of falling in love would not present itself for years to come, and then only on parental inti mation that it was expected of her. Personally and officially he had nothing against Brewster. He liked him quite as well as he did any of tho junior of ficers, and he liked most of them very much indeed. It was as soldierly, man ly a lot of young fellows as one could ask to see, lntr tlm UcsaUQuiradeship and intimacy of frontieriife men get to know one another so thoroughly and so well that the fofoles, weaknesses and waywardness of the animal are apt to be far more prominently mentioned in garrison chat than his sterling or lovable traits. Some men, it may be said, have to die before their virtues can be in the least appreciated. More than once had the major closely interrogated his wife as to the reason of her statement. Had the young fellow dared to speak to Winifred without first asking his permission? Had Winifred dared to fall in love liefore but no, that was impossible. "What makes you think she cares for him?" "How do you know!" "Why should she care for him anyhow?" were the impatient questions that rose to his lips. To one and all she had simply replied that she knew be cause she knew woman's unanswerable reason. No, Winifred had not told her. They had never exchanged a word upon the subject. No, Mr. Brewster had not spoken, if by that was meant of love or marriage, or Winifred would have told her on the instant. But half a dozen other people had spoken. The whole garrison could see he was deeply in love with her. Every glance, word, gesture, act, told the story with unerring cer tainty. "Is there a day, is there an hour, when it is possible for him to see her, speak with her, that he is not by her side?" asked Mrs. Berrien. "You must realize it, major, and you must de cide what should be done. She likes him well, that I know, for she is ever ready to dance with him or ride with him, and 1 can see how her eyes brighten and her color rises when his step or his voice is heard on tho veranda." "But, confound it, Bess!" which was much nearer madam's proper name "he hasn't anything but his pay." Mrs. Berrien laughed softly. ' "But, Richard, dear, even that detri; ment has occasionally been overlooked." "Oh, of course. Exactly. I know. Neither had 1. That is what you mean, I suppose. But things were different then." "Granted again, Dick very different; so much so that were things as they used to bo I would be utterly opposed to her marrying in the army!" This being just exactly the view the major had not taken, ho could only stare at her in astonishment. "Bess, what on earth do you mean?" "Just what I say, Richard. 1 like what I've seen of Mr. Brewster very much, and I don't wonder Winnie fan cies him. Ho is a gentleman; ho is a fino soldier; he has a good record; he is well connected; his family is one of the best that you or I know; ho has every thing in point of fact to recommend him that you had, my liege, and he has none of your bad habits. You used to drink and smoke and play poker, and, Richard, sometiuJes you used to swear." - "Well, everybody did in those days." "Exactly, and hardly anybody does today, except perhaps one hears a littlo odd language when the wind is blowing from the drill ground. But in other re spects things are indeed different. You and your cronies sometimes talk abort how slow and how indifferent young officers are now as compared with what they were twenty years ago. Dick, if the army were today what it was when I married you I would whisk Winnie out of this garrison and never let her venture inside another. But it isn't. In every possible way that a woman and a mother can see, it is vastly better, and you know it. 1 can conceive of worse fates for our daughter than that she should marry such a man as Mr. Brewster and into such a society as we have here today. You are eagerly look ing forward to your promotion. Do you think being lieutenant colonel will com pensate you for leaving such comrades and friends as you have in the Twelfth?" "I'm hoping to exchange." "You can't, Dick. Nobody will trans fer with you who onco gets into tho Twelfth. And now &3 to Winifred. You always liked Mr. Brewster. You rather preferred him until lately. What has changed your view?" "Nothing, except why why, Bess, you must have seen or heard, for one thing, this affair with Mrs. , you know." ah utterly one sided an affair as ever was known," said Mrs. Berrien stoutly. "1 believe 1 can see clear through it. 1 despise the woman. She has always made a dead set at some one of tho of ficers stationed here, 1 am told. She was just as absurd about Mr. Martin, of the Eleventh every body says so in town and she picked out Brewster because he was tho handsomest of the new lot when our regiment came in. Ask any one you choose, and I think my view will hold good. Ask Captain Rolfe what he thinks, and he and Mr. Brewster are not on friendly terms." "I have asked Rolfe; 1 asked him only this evening," replied Berrien, turning redder, "and he begged to be excused from expressing an opinion." "Why?" "Well, he wouldn't 6ay, but he had seen something or other that we hadn't, owl ha dueii't like Brewslei. 1 have a man making love to Winnie om minute and that kalsomined creaturo the next. I wish there were no dance tonight. I want to see Rolfe again. Who takes her?" "Mr. Brewster, of course. He asked her two days ago, when tho affair was first projected. He is in the parlor now, but so are all the others." The major stepped over to the win dow and began thrumming with his pudgy fingers upon the pane. All the i. 'iality and gladness seemed gone from iiis face. Tho lights were already be ginning to twinkle in the quarters iicross the parade, and darkness, "waft ed dowuward like a feathwr," was shut ting out the long line of shadowy bluffs beyond the stream. Down stairs he could hear tho sound of joyous chatter, the deep voices of the men mingling with tho rippling, silvery laughter he knew and loved so well. How happy the child seemed! How she loved the regiment and gloried in his profession! How proud she was at school of the pho tographs he had from time to time sent of his brother officers, and how the other girls, her letters declared, envied her because 6he was a soldier's daughter and had lived on the wild frontier. He could hear the sound of other girlish voices, too, Winifred's friends from town, but he found that his ear listened only for hers. How blithe and musical and full of hope and gladuess it seemed. How lovely she looked as she came down dressed for dinner just as he re turned from that odd, constrained talk with Rolfe. Poor Rolfe! he was given over to the blue devils now, sure enough. He and Kenyon and "Pills," tho doctor, formed a triumvirate of sympathetic souls, for since Jennie and "the kids" had gone Ilolden's life seemed to have fallen into the sear and yellow leaf. Kenyon, as in duty bound, was mak ing tho circuit of the garrison returning calls just now, but Rolfe went nowhere except the doctor's. There he could be found almost every evening, for ever since Nita Guthrie's visit the walls of the old house seemed charmed to him. "Begad,"' said the major, "I'll slip over there tonight myself, while the rest of the folks are dancing. I want to seo what it is he is holding back." For the life of him lie cou'.tl not be re pellant in manner to Brewster when he went down stairs. The three young fellows honored with invitations on this particular evening were Brewster, Ran dolph and Ridgewuy. Brewster be cause ho was to be Winifred's escort to the hop, the others because they had made the best of matters and invited tho other girls, Ridgeway, be it known, not without inward exasperation. He fancied Miss Kitty Pennoyer as a sub stitute for Winifred Berrien about as much or as little as ono is content with a back seat when he cannot have a box. But it kept him "in touch with thi house," so to speak, and gave him opportunities at least of occasional word with the beautiful girl whom he so admired. Ho knew he was no match for Brew ster so far as physique or reputation was concerned, but then girls had been known to prefer patrimonial estate to personal charms, and ho meant at least to try the effect of his solid qualifica tions as against those which made Brew ster so attractive to tho sex. He knew the major liked him well enough, and ho thought ho could count on tho good oftitVs of Mrs. Berrien, but ho was not so sure about Winifred. When the jovial major appeared ho was in readi ness to pay his respects at once, and was cordially welcomed by that red faced veteran; so was Randolph; and then there stood Brewster at Winnie's side, both, as it so happened, looking straight at him. "Well, by Jove, they do make an al most ideal couple!" he said to himself. Brewster fair, stalwart, straight and soldierly, a picture of manliness and vigor. Winifred dark, yet with so rich a glow mantling tho soft, creamy skin, with such glorious, deep brown-black eyes, so lovely and slender uud graceful a form.

But while all this was a joy to ys soul, it was as nothing as com pared rith being praised by her father in her hearing. At that precise moment Carroll Brewster stood the hap piest man within the limits of a crowded county. And now at ten o'clock the hoproom was well fSkkL. A number of pleasant people had driven out from town. All the garriat girls were there, most of the eldertanong the mammas, all the juniors mug the matrons, and the dance wentme-rrily on. Delightful mu sic the orcaestra of the Twelfth was ever readjto play, and this night their leader seed inspired. The affair was entirely irirmaL No written invita tions had lien sent out.

It was one of the oldest and sweetest of the Strauss waltzes that was being played at the moment, "Geschichten aus dem Wien erwald," and slowly reversing and turning, with the eyes of more than half the spectators and wall flow ers upon them, Brewster and Winifred were now gliding across the upper end of 'che hall within a few feet of the smiling tow of lookers on, almost yrith- J"J j-iLciiajnntKfr' hnnrT Hjs face &ant mistake.

Vegetarianism : The Baals of all Reform. Tbe following paper was read at the World's Fair Vegetarian Conference the first week in June. While America shines ns the liter ary star of the world, and boasts of her superior government and institu tions of learning, she is not behind her sister nations, whom she wel comes to-day, in all moral and sociul reforms. One stepping-stone upon another has been added by self-sacrificing reformers, till America's gigan tic reputation for right over wrong sheds its lustre from nation to nation. And from this commingling of na tional ideas from the world's choicest minds, we hope to deduce an added line of march that shall lead all re forms above and beyond nny prece dent; and this line is Vegetarianism. From purity of food we exject to dev)hp th highest type of national morMit.V?,"jurature, art, and sciene. Hy purity of food we mean that which is free from diseaseand disease producing elements. Whatever builds the body builds the brnin. Pure food will show itself in the acts of mankind, as well as in the human form. If we live largely on animal food we develop the animal nature; we become brutal, demoralized, and delight only with the coarser amuse ments; enjoy rude and uncultured people; are fitted mostly for the low er grades of labor. Animal food not only detracts from the intellect, bnt it makes the tissues unsavory. There is more need of bathing; more need of fresh linen; more need of pure air to burn up the waste matter. Ve boast, in tbis nineteenth cen tury, of many improvements due to zealous and scientific reformers, yet we do not hesitate to feed our stom achs with the detestable swine, which the wiser Hebrew banished from his bill of fare thousands of years ago. One reward to the Hebrew nation for persistently discarding the unclean hog, is, that no cancer has ever been found among the Jewish people. Dr. Adam Clarke, when asked to say grace at a dinner where there was roast pig, reverently bowed his head and said : "O Lord, if Thou canst bless under the eospel, what Thou didst curse under the law, do Thou bless this pig." Dr. Clarke evidently loathed the scavenger. When we review the statistics and note the increase of consumption, of cancer, of tumors, and the various forms of scrofula, is it not time to sweep the unclean things from our tables? When we watch the agony of chil dren suffering from diphtheria, scar let fever and like putrid diseases, will we continue to feed them on meat juices and other preparations of ani mal food? Their pure young natures cannot use such impurities, and the system is forced to expel them in some form of disease. Dietary reform ir,r ns less mortality from the cradle to l; I nge. It means health, strength and added years. While there is an abundance ol aiu, liuita nnil rtfeta ble, which are pure nnd free from disease, why need we cling to ourslaughtvr-houses and animal dinners? The purer the body the higher the capacity for enjoying all that is pure and en nobling in this life. If our tables are spread without stimulating and ex citing foods there would be fewer to bacco users, fewer drunkards, less suicides, and less crime. When the stomach is free from spices, pickles and animal foods it will not crave the disgusting weed and the insane wine-cup. Reform the diet and drive the tobacco smoke from the house and street, and t he liquor seller would 6tarve for want of patronage. The law-givers could have morning mati nees instead of police courts. The air ia so vitiated with tobacco fumes that we are partially robbed of the greatest life-giving element ever be queathed to man. Scarce a turn can we make but tobacco poison con fronts us, and the diseases which fol low in its path appall us. Heart fail ure has become a national pass-word from life to eternity. Tobacco is largely to blame for it; and animal food with other faults in diet are largely thecauseof the tobacco habit. "Cleanse yourselves from all filthi ness of the flesh" and crime will not exist; purify your tables and your morning prayers will reach nearer heaven. The gallows would be cheat ed of its loathsome record if only the grains, the fruits and vegetables help ed to balance the brain. "Every man that hath this hope in him, pur ifieth himself even as he should be pure." E. M. Bingham, M. I)., Springfield, Mass. Business Failures. Tho tntnl Amount of business fail ures reported for the first six months of 18!.l is u.zay. inenrscuau iwo held the record with a total of 6,100. The number of 1893 failures in which tho linhilities are returned at over 1 00.000 is 284. The number of such big failures in the first six months of last year was 89; of the year before 143; of the year before thaJay"TV Tu7rTC" bank failures to date thisvar is given at 79, with liabilities in the near neighborhood of 126,000,000. The total numlier of such failures in the corresponding halves of the three preceding years was 36, and the aggregate of liabili ties about f 20.000,000. The estimated liabilities of all the business establishments that have gone to smash in the last six months foot up to fl 70,800,440, divided geographically as follows: New Eng land, 117,347,440; middle states, j.-2,415,229; southern states, 118, 290,434; western states, $4O,70."i, H88 ; northwestern states, f 29,134, 009; Pacific states,! 12,048,872. Professor Olmstead states that his method ot preserving scientific appa ratus from rust is one of the best known. His preparation is made by the slow melting together of six or eight parts of lard to one of resin, stirring until cool. This remains semi fluid, ready for use, the resin preventing rancidity, and supplying an air-tight film. Rubbed on a bright 8iii face ever so thinly it protects and preserves the polish effectually, and it can te wiped off nenrly clean, if ever desired, ns from a knife blade; or it may be thinned with coal oil or benzine.

The Pecos Bridge, Texas. Another great pnginiering work re cently completed in Texas is a very high cantilever bridge over the Pecos Itiver. This bridge, some 330 ftet high, while not the highest in the world, is one of the highest, anil nt the same time one of the mont con siderable railroad structures ever erected. When the engineers locating that part of the Southern Pacific Railroad came to the Pecos Kiver, they wanted to go directly across with a bridge; but more timid coun sels prevailed, nnd instead of taking a flying leap over a canon more than 300 feet deep, it was decided to make a detour of 2." niilen by way of the Hio Grande. This was eleven or twelve yenrs ago. This longer roul", as the curves were blmrp nnd the grades steep, was ex pensive to build and maintain, and more expensive to operate. It was a heavy tax on through (Srright, and several years ago it wifi decided to take the flying leap of the Pecos, nnd thus avoid the grades and curves and longer haul. The Phipnix Ilridge Company did tho work. I he entire length or thebrulire is 2180 feet from abutment to abut ment. There are two cuntilevers each 172 feet long, and one suspend ed lattice-girder span of 80 ft-t. 1 his suspended span is hung lie t ween the two cantilever spans on eight massive bars, nnd expansion space of several feet are left at the ends where it should join the cantilevers. The intense heat of the summer sun makes this space for expnnsion a necessity. In addition to these spans there are eight lattice spans of 0." feet each, one plate-girder span of 4." feet, 18 plate-girder spans of 3. feet. each, and 10 plate-girder spans of 2." feet each. I he width of the floor of the completed span is 23 feet, part of which is taken up by a walkway on either side of the single track. The bridge has sufficient strength to benr five times the weight made by n con tinuous train of the heaviest modern locomotives moving over it. From the ground at the bottom of the canon and on the banks of the river the bridge looks like a slender lattice work, but is really, as will lie seen from the above statements as to its strength, a very solid nnd stable structure. Harper's Weekly. West Point at Chicaoo. Tho country nt large, nnd the nrmy in particular, are to lie congratulated upon the removal of the supposed legal difficulties in the way of tho visit of the West Point cadets to the World's Fair. The entire corps of cadets will spend ten days of August in an encampment within the Ex position grounds. This is especially fortunate, liecause the cadets, who will be biibj ft to the same discipline dining their stay at Chicago as if they were in their usual summer camp on the Hudson, will themselves make one of tho most interesting and instructive exhibits at the inter national show they will be sent to witness ns nn important inci dent in their - own education. Thousands of citizens from the in terior of the country who probably will never visit the I'nited States Military Academy will learn from personal observance the absurdity of the statement recently made by a Texas Concressman that the institu tion is conducted for the liencilt of "dudes". The Military Academy at West Point is tho most democratic institution of its kind in the world. No distinctions, social, ancestral or financial, are recognized there, and the spectacle ol these young men living n life of ubsolute regularity and of the strictest mental and phys ical discipline will convey nn in structive leHson to all who observe it. New York Press. What it Costs. A methodical man died in Ilerlin recently, nt the age of sevent v-three. When eighteen yenrs old he began keeping a record which he continued for fifty-two years, which is the best commen tary we have seen on the life cf a mere worldling. His life was not consecrated to n high ideal. The book shows that in fifty-two years this "natural man" had smoked 028,713 cigars, of which ho had re ceived 43,092 as presents, while for the remaining ."83,023 he had paid about 10,433. In fifty-two years, according to his book-keeping, he had drank 28,980 glasses of beer and 30,080 glasses of spirits, for all of which he spent $3,340. The diary closes with the words: "I have tried all these things, 1 have seen many, I have accomplished nothing." A stronger sermon could not be preach ed than to putthis testimony against that of the first missionary, " 1 have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith." The arrest in Detroit of Dr. Henry Meyer and the woman who passes as his wife brings out n story of crime rarely equalled. There is said to be evidence that the couple en gaged in systematic murder for money. Meyer is credited with the poisoning of three wives and several men, und the woman, it is alleged, has been his helper in many of the crimes. The first crime was com mitted in 1878, and it has been du plicated as often ns the plans of the murderers could Is matured. With two other men, it is charged Meyer also engaged in insurance frauds, one or another of the trio getting sick by means of poison, and then pnlmingoffa body obtained by kill ing some one closely resembling the alleged sick man. Tho believers in total depravity will find in the Meyer couple good confirmation of the theo ry, if the accusations are sustained. The last ojen Sunday at the World's Fair was ns disappointing ns those which had preceded it. The paid admissions were only 49,401, and the fund for the families of the men lost in the cold-storago ware house fire was increased by only about $30,000, including tho per centages from tho conecssionarhf . There is an injunction restraining the managers from closing tho gates of the Exposition on Sunday, but this is likely to lie set aside in time to close next Sunday. According to statistics just issu.nl by the government, the banking cap ital of the country amounts to $010,000,000, while there nre just $710,000,000 invested in milch cows. This is almost enough to turn tho cow's heads. Hitcki.in'h Akmh-a mai.ve.
