So Herbert Sllex promised, aud the

It was a glorious winter twilight
when Herbert Silex reached the
Cedars the sky belted with orange,
the moon Just steering her silver
crescent Into view above the western
woods, while evergreens, veiled In
whlteaew, kept guard around the old
mansion. It seemed scarcely an in-
tant from the time the old knocker
sounded a summons before he was
lfl the old hall, bis uncle stinking bis
hand, and four of the prettiest girls
he had ever seed gathered around
the fire. ' '
"Are all these my cousins?" said
Herbert, Internally congratulating
himself upon his new relatives.
"No such good luck, my boy! said
Uncle Sllex, chuckling. "Amy and
Clara come here and kiss your cousin.
Nonsense, nonsense; no shyness here!
We're all one family, remember.
These yellow-haired lassies are their
visitors. Llxzlo ana Lucy saxon."
And so Herbert became acquainted
all around.
Miss Amy Sllex was a tall, graceful
girl, with great dreamy eyes aud a
tremendous aptitude for poetical
quotations. Clara was a brunette,
altogether on a smaller pattern, who
laughed and danced about as If the
world were all an amusing joke.
Lizzie Saxon waa a llght-balred
beauty, with cherry cheeks and the

But love and laughter do not al
ways harmonize. Pretty Clara was
the most charming of companions for
half an hour, but when Herbert came
to consider it as a life question, it
was quite another thing. And Amy
was a little tiresome with her poetry
and her reveries. Lizzie Buxton was
well enough, but Lizzie seemed to be

Bertie Sllex had fulrly caught the

"I would rather not Herbert."
"But why? You are fond of skat

hanging down her head like a lily of
the valley.
"Promise me that you will go." ;
But Lucy only shook her head.

The Easiest "Ouys" Those that Know

John W. Goff asked one of the gang
of green-goods swindlers, who have
fallen Into his confidence recently,
whether It was possible, after all that
had lsHa printed lu the newspapers,
there were any considerable. uumlwr
of men still ready to believe the story
of "the stolen treasury plates" aud
the counterfeit money that will defy
"There used to bo those kind of
fellows, Mr. (ion," replied the green
goods man, "but I haven't had any

Infidelity and Intemperance Ilia
Least Forgivable Faults.
"What shortcoming In niat' Is moHt
distasteful to a woman?", asks a
writer In Woman who professes to
take testimony from BrllMi wives

The result Is that the. majority quun

fatal flaw In masculine character.
Home of the replies to the query are
too flippant to deserve notice. Shy
ness, a lack of humor and the like
aro mentioned, all of which goes to
prove that the Engileh and American
woman hold widely different views
on this matter. , .
When, a twelvemonth ago, a ques

JVoplu Who Wonder How Tliey Once

Hinre of articles have been written
telling what becomes of faithful,
worn-out street car horse, but never
yet ha a newspaper stated where the
old street car go to. Ask, Brighton

full of them, and every day their it u wi

understand how m many of the car
have got off the truck. It seems to
them a if there must have lsien a
tidal wave which washed all the
Cambridge cars Into the next town.
There the "Cambridge railroad" I
stranded, Its couches cast high and

What was to be done with the old
cars? the street railroad companies
nsked themselves. It would cost
more to spilt them up than they would
fetch for kindling. But Cambridge

six of them. Ho got thirty-six. Then

children they might use it for a play
house. The children were "tickled

to two the car, and never did the ad
vance coach of Haruura's circus or
Huriih Hernhnrdt's car attract more
attention. The little folks came for
miles aud peered through the pickets
of the fence. Then they went homo
and teased for a street car, and kept
right on teasing. That first car was
like the first boy's bicycle in an out-of-the-way
town; It created a demand.
In a few day Mr. Mturtevant began
to make sales. It got so at last that
when pooplo ordered thorn Mr. Sturt
cvnnt would nsk, unconsciously,
"How many?" as if he were selling
eggs. , ..
People with a large number of chil
dren found Unit they must have sev
eral; and now one can toll about how
many young ones a Brighton man
has by counting the curs In his
yard and allowing three children to
each car. Mothers found they could
put their small children Inside, and
shutting the door, leave them with a
feeling of security. It was the cheap
est way, too, in many cases to provide
shade. The cars could be secured for
$5 apiece, wlillo not much stock wns
to bo bought from the nurseries for
that money, Then, also, it was nec
essary to wait for trees to grow, and
by the car method a whole nursery

secured, dragged by horses into back

Pioneer Sailing Vessel
of Oregon.
She Was Built Fifty-live
Years Ago.
Was Only About Forty-Klght Feet
Long, but Was a Trim
Little fittft.
Nearly fifty Ave years ago the 'pio
neer sailing tersel of Oregon was
constructed. That wa long before
Portland was thought of, and, at that
reuinta day, the entire site of Port
land wa covered with giant sous of
the forest and tangled, Impenetrable
Mwtu Island was the siH selected
for laying the keel of the pioneer
vessel, and the name cuoscu was tbo
slguiilcnut and appropriate one of
"Wtnr of Oregon." A number of giant
oak stood at the lower end of the
Win ud, Just opposite the high, abrupt
bluff where the river makes a sudden
turn to the west aud It was under
their wide spreading branch-
(tie veuturesomo little craft was built
and took Its Initial plunge lute the
Work u the fttar of Oregon was
commenced erly lu 1H0, snd on the
loth of May, 141, she was launched
iuccurully. The Vessel wa lakeu to
Oregon City, where she was llntsUed
and equipped for ft sea vo)gb. The
comimuy owtilng the craft was com
posed of John Oman, llalph Kll
isiurn, Pleasmt Armtrong. Ueorge
IKivIs and Jacob tireeti. The work
was done principally by Felix Hath
away, Bnlpb Kiibnuru aud Captain
Joseph Oitle. From all ae-couuts there
was very strong opsitlon from
member of the Hildm Buy win
puny, many of whom were then
stationed at Vancouver, aud as u
iiiitnmi result of itiu Jealousy and
rivalry, many obstacle wete thrown
In the way. Thus the work pro
gressed slowly nud muter discourag
ing circumstance.
FUinlly "Jlnthiwuy became dls
heartened and. abandoned the work
befoiv the vessel was more than half
completed. The piece of timber which
was used for the keel wa cut from
a tnte on Kauvle's island. In those
day the Island went by the name of
Wnpnto. This stick of tiinlier was
found, on measurement, to be forty
eight feet aud eight luetics In length,
and so It was resolved to make the
new vessel that long. The tree was
cut aud roughly hewed, aud transport
ed to Bwuu Wand. After llutliaway
throw up iho Jb. (Sale and Kllbourn
went ou and completed it It was
not until the summer of LSI'.' that the
Htar of Oregon was placed In readl-i-.cs
for her voyage, Kooti after the
vessel wn completed, Captain Onbt
determined to take her down to where
San Francisco uow stands. It wa
then known a Verba liuetin tgisnl
herb), and consisted of a few rudo
ikIoIm) huts scattered about on the
wild sand hills which overlooked the
water of the bay. A voyage In those
pioneer days from where Portland
now Mtand down to Verba iiueiin,
rMctally in so small nud rudely con
structed a craft was considered a
great undertaking, mid fraight with
many peril. to thought Captain
Onle. All preparations were com
pleted, and the Hum craft stinted on
her passage not without ninny fear
and pilsglvlng.' On the 12th of Kep
totitbcr. iKi'J, the Htnr of Oregon left

Captnln Cole accepted a cordial In
vitation from Captain Couch to come

Captain Gale's account of the voyage
Is very amusing In many respects.
There were many dllllcultles en
countered, such as fogs, head winds,
sen-slckmws, etc. At length, after
many perils, Yerba Buenn was
renched In safety on the morning of
September 17, 1812. Concluding tho
account of the voyage, Cuptaln Gale
says: , .
"Tho fog began to open, nud wo
mndo sail and ran down with a light
breexo until about 4 o'clock; the fog
commenced giving way, and In a few
inlntttes we looked up and saw the
high hinds Immediately soulkenst of
us. and In half an hour after the en
trance of the port of San Francisco
was opened to us. The breeze now
freshened to a whole-sail brecge; we
hauled lu to the eastward and dashed
through Its portals like an arrow,
and Just ns the sun went down we
dropped author abreast of tho old
"It was plenHlng to mo to see what
a difference there was in the aspect
of my companions. The gloom of tho
voyage had now given way to pleas
ure, and they we, i happy. As for
myself, Columbus fawself could not
iiave felt happier when first he solved
the great problem than I did at this
time." ,,-'.-'..-, - ..',' -
Scon after reaclilng San Francisco,
Captain Gale disposed of the vessel
to .Toso Y. Lamonture, a Frenchman,
for 350 cows. These cows were driv
en from California to the Willamette
valley in the spring of 1843. Tho
whole' country was then nn unbroken
wlldornes, filled with wild animals
and Indians. Seventy-five days were
required to moke the toilsome', jour
ney. Captain Gale reached tho val
ley with but comparatively littlo loss.

Some extraordinary exhibitions of
hypnotic power were given at the
Charlie hospital In Pari by Dr. Lnys
recently. Two women and three men
were the "subject.' After briefly
outlining hi plan and the theories
he proposed to explain, the professor
seated one of the women In an easy
chair. He held before her a ginger
bread figure of a woman, and, with
a few mystic slgus and phrases, trans
ferred, as ho said, the living sensi
bility of the woman in tho ciinlr to
the gingerbread. Then with great
deHberatl.m lie dlsmoniliered the cuke,
breaking off one baud after the other,
abbreviating tho arms, mutilating
the legs nud finally taking a' bite out
ef the head.
At every fresh assault upon the
gingerbread the subject hrlekd and
clutched at her own limbs. Aa the
gingerbread woman became, smaller
anil -mailer, the shrieking '.woman
hec-ama weaker and weaker, uitll her
final burst of agony was little more
than an Incipient shudder.
Of course the professor was not ln
spired by bloodthirsty Instincts and
ho spared the female to exert the
same Influence upon 'her later for the
mystification of other Inquirers Into
scientific wonders. He restored her
strength with a few word of gtblicr
ish, and ns she arose from her sent,
dnsed and evidently sufferlog from
thi Indistinct temembranee of some
Indefinite tortnre, the professor lu
vlted one of the men to take the chair.
A camera was wheeled -from' a cor
ner and pointed at a man, vvuo. mean
while had been suitably posed by nn
assistant, who now stood near by
ready to strike a flash-light when he
was directed to do so. The professor
allowed himself a , capable photog
rapher as well as n skillful scientist,
and after trifling with the locus and
oiherwiso prolonging the entertain
ment he gave the word that produced
the flash light and the negative wns
made. It required but a few momenta
to develop the likeness snd then was
soeu a fairly good reproduction of
the sitter's pictures. The sitter rec
ognised the picture nud conceded
that it looked like hint.
The professor made a few passes
with hjs hands above the head and
on the forehend of the man hi the
chair. A thing ns soulless as a cor
poration sat in tbo chair and another,
ns full of soul m a bride, was on the
negative. Standing with his back to
tho subject the professor, with greftt
deliberation, drew a plr.point . across
the face ou the negative, lining both
cheeks. At tho sdme Instant the tnnu
uttered an exclamation of. pulii,
raised his hand andTpnssed" H across
his face. But roost wonderful of nil,
a red mark appeared for a 'moment
on the cheeks of the man, following
exactly the course taken by. the vin,
Iu turn the sharp instrument waa
passed over the skin of the forehead,
the lips, the ears, and lu each "in
stance the accompanying shrinking
and pain of the subject were notice
able, as was likewise the red mark.
Pricking the negative with tho piu
polut even gnt)y, was foft by the
victim and indicnted by his nervous
action. The professor explalued that,
of course, no special virtue attached
to tho negative. The same transfer
ence of soul could be made to a print
from the negative to an engraving,
to an oil palutlng or any other pic
torial object " "
Tlie man was then placed upon the
scientific shelf and the secoud woman
called. She was a delicate subject,
readily susceptible to tho Influence
of .extorlorbuttlon and showing her
sympnthy with tlie nondescript dum
my that was supposed to represent
her in the. professor's bauds.
This was a rog baby, and, after go
