A BELLE'S INN. My Uncle Bayle was a man whom ev ery one loved and welcomed as a visitor. His home was not as ours was, in the little city of Mirepoix, but in a grand chateau, with crimson roof and shutters, in the environs of Foix. A lawyer by profession and pressed with business, he never let a fortnight pass without com ing to see our mother, and there were many of us to greet him, for Uncle Bayle was the eldest of 13 children, all of them, with one or two exceptions, living with their own or their children's children in the neighborhood of the family home, my sister and myself in the homestead itself, with our intirm but pious and courageous mother, whom, as 1 told you awhile ago. Uncle Bayle came to see. "Uncle," said Dorothy one evening, the prettiest as well as the bravest of all our cousins, "tell us a ghost story, please. We have heard all the others." "One cold autumn evening," said he, "some 40 years ago, I was returning from Toulouse, where I had been called on business. I was traveling fast and had already passed Auterive, where some friends had urged me to stay the night, but I was in a hurry to reach Savordun. three leagues farther on, and continued my route. Just in front of the monastery of Bolbonne, in the forest of Secourien, one of those furious tempests which spring up in the heart of the mountains without a moment's wanting fell upon me. In less than no time it was as black as midnight and the road invisible. There was nothing for it but to turn about and ask for shelter at Bolbonne. In a little while my horse stopped, and I saw that we were before the door of an inn. I entered. The com pany was numerous and comjosed of merchants, Spanish students aud the sportsmen of the neighborhood, sur prised like myself by the storm. 'Truly,' said one of the hunters, 'the weather's devilish—a regular witches' sabbat.' 'Pardon me,' cried a voice in a dis tant corner, 'witches and goblins hold sabbats on moonlight nights-and not in storms." "We all turned to see who had spoken and saw that it was a Spanish mer chant. None of us seemed disposed at first to answer a remark made with such solemn gravity. In fact, we were as si lent as owls until suddenly my neighbor on the right, a young man of frank and pleasing appearance, bnrst into a fit of laughter. 'Really,' said he. indicating the mer chant who had spoken last, 'it seems as if the gentleman understood the habits of goblins. Perhaps they've told you,' turning to him scornfully, 'how much they dislike to be wet and muddy 1' "The Spattiard gave him a terrible look. 'You speak too lightly, young man,' said he, 'far too lightly of things you know nothing about.' 'And you would have me believe that ghosts exist':' 'Perhaps,' said the other, 'if you are brave enough to look and see. Here's a purse,' he continued, rising and ap proaching the table, 'containing 30 gold en quadruples. I wager them all that in an hour's time I call before you the face of any one of your friends, even if he has been dead a dozen years, whom you may name to me. Moreover, when you have recognized him, he shall ap proach, embrace and salute you with a kiss. Do you agree?' And as he asked the question the manner of the man was impressive and stern that we invol untarily trembled. My neighbor only vaiuained unmoved. 'And you can do all thatV he cried. 'Yes,' answered the Spaniard, 'and willingly part with my 30 quadruples beside, if I do not, provided you will lose a similar amount if I hold to my promise and force you to believe.' The offer was at once accepted. "To guard against trickery and decep tion, we decided to use a little pavilion situated in the outer garden, perfectly isolated and bare of everything but a chair and a table. After assuring our aelves that there were no other issues than a door and a window, the student entered and, we lrft him to his fate, not, however, without placing leside him all the necessary writing materials and ex tinguishing the lights. "When everything was ready and we had arranged ourselves In a circle arcmnd the door, the Spaniard, who had waited in absolute silence till all was done, be KM to sing in a low. sweet voice, a verse, as near as I can remember, running thus: With a cracking noise the coffin bursts In the tomb, deep, dark and profound. And the phantom white places his foot Ou the noil of the cold, damp ground! "Then, elevating his voice, he called to the student shut up within the pavil tar. 'You have told me,' said he, 'that you desire to have a visit from the spirit of your friend, Francis Vialat, drowned three years ago while crossing the ferry of Pensagnoles. Now, what do you meY 'I see nothing,' replied the student k %ut stay! a white light begins to lift Itself yonder by the window, formless, gifting and like a floating cloud' "After a moment's silence the Span iard begins to sing again, his voice deeper •flud gloomier than before: "3Lot the phautoai white, whom the nuking •1 rains jiiad faded to a tint so fair, Wiptd with hi* uhroad $nd hi* skektou HSm drops from Mi toes sad bair." s 'What do you see now,* he cries, •you who wish to sound the mysteries of tho tomb what »lo you see now?' 'Nothing,* replies tho voice of the stu dent, calm aiul cool as ever. 'And you are not afraid? cries the Spaniard, hi manner luuro scornful and insulting still. 'I am not afraid,' comcs back the clear, bravo voice of the prisoner within, while we, standing on the outside and in sight of the iufernal sorcerer's incanta tions, scarcely dare to look at each other, so great is our dismay and surprise. 'And the phantom said,' cries the Spaniard furiously: And the phantom said, coming out from the tomb, "In older that he may know me in tmth, I will go to my friend proud, smiling and iwMt, As In l.e days of our lirst early youth!" "And again, ceasing his song, he puts his terrible question: 'What do you see now?' 'The phantom advancing—he raises the veil—it is Francis—Francis Viatal— he approaches the table—he writes—he has written his name' But before he can say more the Span iard resumes, his voice wild and howling: And the phantom said to this mocking man, "Come thou at once and give to me Thy hand to my hand, thy heart to my heart. Ami thy lipa where I can kiss thee!" 'Are you afraid now? Are you afraid now?" he repeats, almost with frenzy. A shuddering cry, dying away in a moan, is the student's only answer. 'I warned him,' said the Spaniard harshly 'I warned him how it would be. You see, messieurs,' turning to address us, 'that I have gained the wager. But let him keep the money. I am content with the lesson given him. He will be wiser in future." And with a grave in clination he walked away, leaving us thunderstruck at the door of the pavilion, behind which the sound of moans still continued. "At last we opened it to find the stu dent writhing upon the floor, a paper signed with the name of Francis Viatal on the table beside him. It was at least an hour before he had recovered suffi ciently to be about again. Then, furious with rage at the treatment he had re ceived from the sorcerer, ho insisted upon having him brought before him. "But the merchant was not to be found, either in or out of the inn. 'But I will find him,' cried the stu dent, 'and I will kill him on the spot for the impious performance in which he has made me assist." "And soon after, learning from the stable boy that the merchant had sad dled liis horse himself and departed some time ago, he followed him, still swearing instant vengeance. "We never saw him—in fact, we never saw either of them again." "And yet. Uncle Bayle," said Dor othy breathlessly, "you can say there are no euch things as ghosts or goblins" "More positively than ever," he re plied. "Neither the Spanish merchant nor the Toulouse student were ever seen again, as I tell you. No more were the 30 lteautiful quadruples which I and the other guests of the inn had pnt together to make up the sum of the Spaniard's wager. The two rascals had carried them off between them, after playing be fore us a comedy which we were simple tons enough to believe, but which I found very dear at the time, when I had considerably less money to spare than at present."—From the French. Coal Waste. The great quantities of anthracite coal wasted by the unsuitable methods resort ed to in preparing it for market is the subject of complaint by Mr. Harris, the head official of the Lehigh Coal com pany. These operations, he says, result reducing a large proportion of the .coal to sizes too small for commercial purposes, the percentage of waste from this source averaging as high as 20 per ceut of the coal hoisted from the col lieries, this, however, having been some what diminished in recent years by the utilization of the smaller sizes of coal. He thinks that this process—rescuing coal from the waste heaps—is destined to go much farther in the more general use of coal in fine particles. He believes that it may not be going too far to as sume that improved methods of mining and of preparing coal may insure the use as fuel of one-half the coal now re maining, so that it may be reckoned that there are still not far from 6,000,000,000 tons of anthracite available before the beds will be wholly exhausted. The present annual consumption of anthra cite is about 40,000,000 tons, and this consumption has for some years been in creasing at the rate of 4 per cent per an num.—New York Sun.

One of the must remarkable and deli cate operations in the line of what is known as skin grafting was performed at the city hospital Saturday morning by Dr. Charles it. Bar'oer aud several of the house surgeons. A little over two weeks ago Arthur Wheeler, aged years, living at 94 Herman street, was playing near hi* houst with *oiue other children. They started a bonlire of dead leaves. While Arthur was running about the flames, he stumbled aud fell into the fire. His coat caught lire, and before the flames could be extinguished his entire breast, abdomen and one side were fright fully burned. The boy has been ever since the accident in a precarious condi tion, the burns being so extensive that no new skin could form. It was at last decided that the only thing that could wive the little sufferer s life was to ingTaft the skin of some healthy person on the burned parts, and efforts were made to secure some one to consent to such an operation. It was suggested at last that Miss Minnie Wheeler, the 17-year-old sister of the boy, would be just the subject. Miss Wheel er naturally demurred at first to such a proiosition, but finally consented when she was convinced that her brother's life was at stake. Saturday morning Miss Wheeler and her little brother were taken to the City hospital—that being considered a better plact than the home of the parents—and the operation was performed. Miss Wheeler was placed under the influence of ether, and strips of skin from both thighs and one of the hips were shaved off with sharp razors and transferred to the body of the little brother. A slight idea of the ojieration may be gained when it is stated that enough of the epi dermis to cover two square feet of the burned boy's body was removed from the young woman. One piece of skin that was removed extended from just above the knee fully nine inches along the thigh. The girl's limbs were swathed in bandages, and she was taken home in an ambulance, the boy remaining in the hospital. It is ex pected that a new cuticle will have put in an appearance inside of 10 days, and that Miss vV"heeler will have entirely re covered before the 1st of November. Nothing can be determined as to the success of grafting the skin on Arthur Wheeler for 10 days to come, but it is believed that the oi»eration will result in saving the boy's life.—Rochester £knno crat and Chronicle. CUPID IN A GRAPE BASKET. Hf»w Pretty and Romantic Fenoaylvaala Girl found a Husband. A fair daughter of this town has just closed up a little romance and is now enjoying her honeymoon in New York city. Miss Mildred Althoff, who was formerly an accountant in a large manu facturing plant here, went up to Port land, N. Y.,this sunrmer to spend her vacation as a grape picker in a big vine yard. She is a pretty girl and fond of romance, so she penned this note and tucked it in a basket of grapes: I am employed as a grape picker by Frank J. Lytle iik his vineyards between Dunkirk and Brocton in the town of Portland. My home is at Williamsport, Pa., where I am em ployed regularly as an accountant in a large manufacturing concern of that city. I am an orphan, but am well connected, having two brothers at the head of mines in Colorado and an uncle who is jiresident of a bank in Ne braska. Next year 1 shall again work in the vineyards near Hrocton, merely for recreation and a change of air, and if this note uhould fall into the hauds of a young man who is de sirous of making the acquaintance of a re spectable ffrap« picker 1 would like to hear from him. The basket of grapes containing this letter fell into the hands of George P. Newcotnb, a young man employed as salesman for a New York clothing con cern, and who at the time the basket of fruit was received was the guest of his parents, who reside about four miles from Olean. He came here, but could not find the pretty grape gatherer, so when his vaca tion arrived he went to Lytle's vine yard. He there met Miss Althoff.

Pittbburu, Nov. 23. strike in the sheet mill industry has bee® averted and a settlement effected by which 80 mills, employing over 17,000 men will continue in operation during the winter. The settlement was effected by the rollers agreeing to take the wage reduction intended for the roughers and catchers. President Garland of the Amalgamated Association requested an other conference and the matter was ar ranged in a short time by the workmen presenting a proposition to continue the roughers' and catchers' wages at $2.50|a day, the rollers assuming the 10 per cent reduction. This will cut the wages of the latter 15 per cent. TJ|e scale will We signed at once.
