IIIIi.VM WKS TON'S DOUBLE.
New m 1. Sun.
It has often been said that some
where in thu world every person has
his double. Tho assertion is too
broad for acceptance, but it is certain
that there are doubles, and that tho
close similarity between peoplo has
led to many grave complications. It
is not yet ten years ago that a man
nanieii ii Irani weston, living in a
small town in Ontario, was hired by a
tinsmith to drive a peddler's wagon.
ne nuuie two trips ami started on a
third, but after he had gone two
days tho outfit was returned
by a fanner, who said that it
had been left in his barn
yard at night. As Weston was miss
ing, search was at once begun, and it
was finally shown that, ho had been
seen in company with two strangers
at a railway station, where all had
taken the train for bulfalo. As the
tinsmith had lest nothing ho did not
care to follow the case up. It was
pretty generally known that Weston
and his wife did not live agreeably,
and although she insisted that lie had
met with foul play, and wanted tho
search continued, it was soon drop
ped on the idea that he had run away
liom her. lie was little missed by
mo community, and wlicn the case
was called uu it was universally con
ceded that he would turn up safe when
he got ready.
One day, live months alter his dis
appearance, Weston returned. Ho
was first seen at the depot by threeor
tour citizens who had known him for
ten years. One of these, a Mr. Will
iams, saluted him with:
1 "Well, Hi, yuu aren't dead?"
"Come back to stay?"
"I guess so."
"Which wav have you been?"
"I was talking with your wife yes
terday, and she said you had never
written a lino to her."
Weston grinned and scratched his
head, but made no reply. A Mr. Do
Manu then said:
"We spout four weeks looking for a
case of murder. Next time you're go
ing to step out you'd better let some
of us know it."
"Yes, I will," answered Weston, as
he staited up tho streut. It was aft
erwards remembered that ho acted
like a strange man in a strange place.
He inquired of a boy about hotels,
and the lad directed him to one, ami
"I saw your boy Fred, yesterday,
and he has got an awful boil on his
The landlord of the hotel saluted
him as Hi Weston, as did some of tho
guests, and the. fact of his engaging
board was not considered strange,
though his wiio lived only a milu
away. Perhaps he did not intend to
go back to her at all, or perhaps ho
wanted to get certain promises bo-
fore ho did go back. lie entered the
town at 10 o'clock, in tho forenoon,
i and it was S in the evening when his
son Fred., a boy of ten.antl his daugh
ter. Edith, a girl of seven, called at the
hotel ami urged him to conio home.
They kissed him, called him father,
and he seemed glad to see them. In tho
prosencoof tho landlord ho asked soma
I questions about tho:r mother which
seemed very strange at the time, but
wero at, once forgotten. 1 hi asked her
age how many children she had, how
long tho father had been gone, and
what vocation lie followed when at
home. He did not ask these questions
direct, Out yet in such a manner that
satisfactory answers were returned,
and in such a way astocausothelaud
lord to remark:
"Why, Hi, ono would think you
had forgotten your family and had

Mrs. Weston was neither a smart
nor an educated woman, and had t'io
reputation of having a bitter tongue.

door and had no reproaches. After

For a time Mrs. Weston believed th

told her a story which opened her
eyes. He had gone olY with a couple
of sharpers, and, in return for some
"work" done in litillalo. ho had beL
sent to State prison for a year. Htr
was in prison when the other Wcstois
came to town, and had indeed beeir
discharged only the day previous to
his own arrival. It may bu staled

this disease better than auy amount
of reasoning could do. It is prohald
that tho modification in tho ha Lit cS

have something to do with its caus

microbes, found in the diseased struc

is unknown. Most authorities ousan
itary matters believe that un healthful
conditions of houses have more to tJoa
with outbreakes of corebro-iiruiB
