New York, Oct. 27. The moderate
rains of the past day or two have brought
but partial relief to the industries depen
dent on water power; the drying up of
streams in the Atlantic States mav be
said to entend from Androskoggan down
to the James, and even some ot the local
rivers, like the Delaware, are fordable at
point where such a thing has not been
known lor many years, ine drought,
however, is felt more seriously at the
eastward, and its effects are beginning to
be felt iu commercial as well as manu
facturing circles. The Boston Journal of
yesterday, says the scarcity of water is
having a bad effect upon nearly all kinds
of merchandise, restricting the demand
especially for raw materials. Cotton,
woolen and paper nulls are ail running

Chicago, Oct. 27. The Times, Humming

the October elections it concentrated
elsewhere. Republican tactics do not by
any means include abandonment of Con
necticut. JNew Jersey ana .Maine, iney
are conducting a fairly vigorous canvass
in thoBe states also, so necessary to their
success if they lose New York, but they
have evidently determined to right the
enemy on uis own grounds and make
their victory more crushing by carrying
his center at the tame moment they turn
bis wings. The republicans can spare
New York and the demodrats cannot.
But, notwithstanding this, the republi
cans are making ten times more vigorous
effects to carry that state' than are the

A Mother's Sacrifice.
San Jose, Oct. 26. Last night the

groundswere destroyed by fire. Mr.
Nolan was absent at the time, and bis

went back after the four-year-old child.

eight-feet of the outer door when she
fell suffocated. Two men who were pass

there is no hope for Mrs. Nolan.
A Rise in Sugar,
San Francisco, Oct 28. The Bulletin
says: San Francisco sugar refiners have
to-day put up prices jc all round. This
is the first change since September 29th,
and ia the tenth made .this year. The
Btock of raw sugar here has been scarce
for some time, and enforced delay in ar
rival of expected consignment from Hong
kong has made matters still worse, but
for weakness in the New York market
and the fear ot a renewal of imports from
that direction, prices here would have
been advanced earlier in the month.
Revised schedule of American Califor
nia refiners from this date is as follows:
Fancy extra powered ia bbls 13J; powder
ed 12j; cube crushed and fine crushed

A SOLDIER'S KASSOa.

little Marie-Yerneau as she looked np into
her lover's face with a most bewitching
"It is very easy to call it cross, Marie,"
was his rejoinder; "but you and I both
know that what you please to term my
crossness is a very different matter. It
isn't that I doubt your love, either, dear
est; but I could hardly get word or look
from you last night. It's the glitter of
the buttons, I think, that's blinded you."
In an instant the girl's coquetry had
vanished. He had spoken the last sen
tence with some strange, new bitterness,
and it brought both sadness and contri
tion to the lovely, laughing face.
"No, Jean," she answered. "It was
nothing but my silly, idle vanity. One
would suppose I was the only pretty
girl in Lorraine, to hear these idle fel
lows talk; and, in listening, I begin to
believe so myself. But it's not the but
tons they wear, Jean. Oh, do I not know
how cruelly it hurts you not to don them
in your country's defense, and the rea-
son which prevents you? I won't make '
you jealous again, dear. It's only that
I'm fool enough to like to hear the
foolish things they tell me."
Poor little Marie! She knew that she
should find it very hard work to keep
her promise; but'Bhe loved Jean bo

Marie had spoken truly when she had
said that she had not meant to wound
her lover. She had loved him long and
truly all these years. She could hardly re

him certainly not when she had not
tormented him with jealous doubts. But
she would do so no longer, not even
when handsome Ricard, the sergeant of
the guard, who danced so divinely,
should come pleading for one waltz.
This was the early davs of the war. and
Lorraine could not look already to the
fate m store for her. when she must
dance to German music, and correct her
musical patois into the difficult German
tongue. But day by day, France's need
was growing sorer, and the conscription
more pressing. No longer content with
her willing, she must have the unwilling
sons as well.
Marie's heart trembled every time she
heard of a fresh list. One evening, at a

, Dr. Paley's Fanoos Illustration.
The following is a condensed statement
of the famous watch illustration of Dr,
Paley: If, he says, in crossing a heath,
I pitched my foot against a stone, and
were asked how it came there, I might
reply, without necessary absurdity, that
ior aught 1 know it nad jam there for
ever. But if, instead of a stone, it were
a watch, the unmistakle evidence of de
sign in its mechanism would compel the
inference that somewhere, and at somo
time or other, it had a maker, who com
prehended its construction and designed
its use. And the inference would still
be the same, although, the finder bad
never seen a watch made, nor was him
self capable of constructing one. Neither
would it invalidate this conclusion, that it
sometimes went wrong, since a machine
need not be perfectly in order to show
evidence of design in its construction, or
that it had a few parts whose relation to
the general effect was not apparent. Nor
would any man in his senses think the
existence of the watch accounted for by
being told that it was one out of possible
combinations of material forms, and hap
pened to assume that particular form; or
that its form could be attributed to a
principle of order; or that its mechanism
was no proof of contrivance, but a mere
motive to induce the mind to think so;
or that it was the result of the laws of
metallic nature, since law presupposes
an agent, being itself only the mode ac
cording to which the agent proceeds.
Nor, again, would the discovery that
this watch could re-produce itself lessen
the force of the inference, since,
however far back the series may be
traced, the evidence of design re
mains, implying the existence of a de
signer; and this implication cannot be
avoided by supposing the series of
watches to nave been infinite, and con
sequently to have had no first, for which j
it is necessary to provide a cause. Here
would be contrivance, but no contriver;
proofs of design, but no designer. But
in reality, the maker of the first watch is
the maker of every watch produced from
it; the only difference being that the re
productive power imparted manifests a
more exquisite skill in the artificer than
the making of a single watch. Now, as
every indication of contrivance, every
manifestation of design, which existed ia
the watch, exists also in nature, only in
vastly greater perfection and variety, the
conclusion is irresistible. Design must
have had a designer; the designer must
have been a person, and that person is
One From Whose Lips Jewels FefL
Of all the fairy tales dear to as in
childhood, we gave the preference,
after due consideration of the charm
of "Cinderella" and the "Sleeping
Beauty," to that of the two sisters
who were rewarded by the fairy that
interviewed them at the fountain, and
besought each in turn to relieve her
thirst, the one receiving a good and
the other an evil gift. Everybody
knows it, how the obliging maiden
gave water to a lovely lady at the
pring, and upon opening her lips to
elate her adventure at home pes.T)st
and diamonds tell, .lrom them in
profusion- which sent her ill-natured
sister in turn to seek so good fortune,
and how the latter, unable to pene
trate the disguise of the fairy, crossly
repulsed the wrinkled old woman
whom she found there, and in conse
quence conversed in toads and Tipers
instead of jewels. It now appears
that this tale was prophetic as well
as symbolical, or possibly it was his
torical. At auy rate there are. if we
may believe a correspondent of the
Banner of JJght, persons who would
be living mines or wealth u their
speech could be stored up. At the
funeral of an excellent woman in
Peabody, Mass., the other day, her
friends were addressed by Miss
Lizzie Doten. "A gentleman saw
the words as they as they fell from
Miss Doten s lips form into beautifully
colored jewels, each facet a difference
hue, and as they fell making a bril
liant shower of light and color." We
have all heard of honeyed words,and
oily speech, of weighty argnment,and
spicy discourse, and gems of thought,
ot "thougts that breathe and words,
that burn.", but we have always
believed these , expressions to be
figures of speech. A continuous
shower of words made visible strikes
us as wonderful in latter daysto say
the least. It is probable that lady
of the jeweled speech is a lineal des.
cendant of the good sister who gave
drink to the fairy; or it may be that
the observer is an opium eater, and
the brilliant spectacle existed only
in his imagination.
