The scene of our storv is in Russia

allowed considerable latitude. They take

whom the police have a spite is not safe
in person or property. The usual mode
of conciliating those in authority is to in
vite them to take snuff out of a snultbo.v,
the contents of which are gold rubles. To
avoid trouble with the police a man in
Russia must be reckless with his rubles.
Police Commissioner Suboir was very,
very obliging in some respects. He was iv
hopeless victim of the snutr habit when
the snnlT box had a gold lining. He was
up to snufT in several senses of the word.
To use an American expression, Suboir
was an investigating committee of one,
that had to be continually lubricated. He
had, however, one other weakness. Ho
was very much given to paying his ad
dresses to the fair sex. He was not pretty
to look at. He was a short, fat, bald
headed man. Scientists say that in a
thousan.l years wo will all bo bald.
SuboiT had merely anticipated the scien
tists by a thousand years. Ho was bald
already, although ii? was unmarried. No
body could accuse him of failing to re
move the hairs out of the comb. His
blood might curdle in his veins, but his
hair never stood on end with terror.
As an additional attraction his com
plexion was very much the color of an
Italian sunset, or a circus poster. His
mouth was the shape of a semi-circular
gash, and looked as if it might be
partial to pie. His ears were largo and
generous, and gave him tho appearance,
at a distance, of being provided with
wings. His face betrayed about as much
intellectuality as an Irish potato. It was
only when he leered that it seemed to
have any expression at all in it.
One would have supposed that such a
caricature of a man would have conllned
his attentions to females who were, com
paratively speaking, as devoid of personal i
attractiveness as himself, such, for in-
stance, as those who wero adorned with a I
hump and ono eye. That, however, was :
not tho modest sort of man that SuboiT '
was. He forced his attentions on the '
loveliest in tho land. If they opposed his 1
wishes he promptly trumped up a con- I
spiracy against the government and sent
them, or their relatives, to Siberia. If a j
handsome woman desired to have any of
her relatives sent to Siberia all that sho
had to do was to refuse to admire SuboiT.
SuboiT was in Warsaw investigating a
conspiracy. A number of prominent
Poles were arrested nnd sent to Siberia,
ami SuboiT was hunting for more conspir
ators. He was kept pretty busy, but he
would have paid much more attention to
his official duties if it had not been for tho
beautiful eyes of the wife of a certain Col.
Mrs. Sabinsky was indeed a beautiful
woman. She was tall, well formed, with
wonderful black eyes and a wealth of hair
to match. Her features wero as faultless
as thoso of a Grecian statue.
Police Commissioner SuboiT had seen
her at a ball, and immediately fell vio
lently in lovo with her, as far ns tho term
was applicable to such a creature as him
self. He paid every possible attention,
bat tho handsome Polo ignored him com
pletely. When ho endeavored to becont,
more familiar she said something to u.
group of ladies that caused them to ssi'Js
audibly. She was evidently making 'u.
of him. He felt pretty sure that sho said
something about his personal appearance,
and that was a subject on which he was
Ho rushed out of the ballroom foaming
with rage. The more ho brooded over
tho affair tho worse ho felt about it. Ho
determined to bo revenged. He would
llnd means to tamo the prido of tho
haughty beauty. Next day Col. babiusky
was arrested for conspiring against the
csar. This meant that, perhaps without
even tho formality of a trial, ho would be
transported to Siberia.
Col. Sablnsky's wife was at first very
much alarmed for the safety of her hus
band. She felt pretty sure that her un
willingness to smile on SuboiT was tho
real causo of her husband's arrest. Sho
vorv smart woman as sljjrp as a
steel trat). She said to herself
Suboff has begun to play tricks o- mo, 1 11
sco if I can't play tricks on him. I I fcti
if I can't beat him at his own game."
Sho managed to have a note conveyed
to her imprisoned husband, telling him to
keep up his courage, as she vrould llnd
means to procure his liberation.
In the meantime Suboff remained in his
office awaiting the result of his first move
tocompcl Mrs. Sabinsky to come to terras

The grimaces and k crs with which these
worn were ULTotupanied left no doubt in
the mind of his visitor as to his real in
tention;., but she managed to conceal her
disgust and promised to call at the ap
pointed hour. As for Snbotr, ho was in
nn eotatie frame of mind. The manifest
absurdity of a man with his cast of coun
tenance creating a favorable liupressiou
on anybody, excepting perhaps himself,
never occurred to him.
An hour before the, appointed time
Suboir was arranging his toilet before the
glass. He festooned his dome of thought
with a wisp of about eleven lonesome
hairs that still lingered around the base
of his bald head. To himself he appeared
to be excruciating lovely. A carriage;
stopped before the door. He pranced to
the window and gazed out, looking, as
Mrs. Sabinsky afterward told a friend, for
all the world like an immense turkey gob
bler. He opened the door and gallantly
kissed her diminutive hand.
"We are quite alone." he said.
"Suppose somebody were to come? My
reputation would bo ruined!" exclaimed
the fair visitor.
"There is not the slightest danger; and
if there was hero is a closet in which you

How could I get in there with my dress?"

l'he next moment the door was pushed to
and locked from the outside.
SuboiT was very much crowded in that
closet, almost as much, perhaps, as if ho
lived in a Harlem Hat. Heithouchthis vis
itor was playing a practical joke on him
and that he would bo released in a few
I minutes, but this delusion was dispelled
I by a linn female voice whispering through
I the keyhole:
"Don't you try to get out, you old
scoundrel, or I'll stab you to tho heart."
There was something in the tone of tho
voice that convinced him tho speaker
Col. Sabinsky's wife tripped to the table,
nnd on one of the olllcial blanks, already
signed by the wretched SuboiT, sho wrote:
"Release immediately Col. Sabinsky."
SuboiT heard a silvery voice say:
"Farewell, my dear Suboir, but don't
excite yourself. If anybody calls remem
ber that you are not in. You have cheek
enough to carry you through anything ex
cept this door. Please shut this door
after you. Ta ta."
When SuboiT realized tho peril of his
situation he made frantic efforts to burst
open the .ioor, but it resisted all his ef
forts, although ho sworo llko a man who
was trying to write with a stylographie
pen. He made almost as much noiso as
i a woman's rights convention and with
I just about the same result. Ho was geu-
orally very successful in attracting atteu
i tion, but on this occasion ho failed igno
I niiniously. He was ulmost speechless
when ho was released, and ho had fallen

Fall Pruning- Will Save
HINTS FOR THE HOUSEHOLD.
Producti von ess and Value of an Or
chard Depend on Pruning
It will save much labor if the effect of
full pruning is thoroughly understood.
Wherever a dormant limit la rut oil", tho
bud just below the cut will next seasnn
push with greater vigor .uul become the
main shoot if the highest left on the
tree. The more vigorously a young tree
is p uned in fall or winter the stronger
growth of wooil it ill make next year,
ami the concent rut ion of sap in a few
lnr'e shoots will prevent fruiting. The
only pruning that can promote fruitful
nes's is that done while the tree is in leaf,
and this result is effected by cheeking
the vinorof its growth.
It is a good plan to use the suninier
ir.ade nuuiure as a top dressing for the
poor places in wheat fields. A very little
fertilizer goes a grout away in such eases.
In our experience, when the ground i
drv, little damage is done to wheat by
driving over it with loaded manure wag
ons having bro;)d tires thnt do not cut in
deeply. U oniv ordinary wheels are
used, defer drawing until the surface i
frozen so it will he ir a load, or wait still
later and draw on the snow with a si !.
In this ease some nnrks should bo put
up beforehand to show where the ma
nure had better bo ipread.
It is not often that n careful fanner
will nllow sows to breed so as to drop
their pigi late in the fall. It costs more
to winter suei pigs than they are worth,
us it is almost impossible, however well
fed and housed, to keep them from be
in" stunted. Rut the pigs need not be
whollv lost. Probably tho liest use of
them 'is to fatten rapidly and sell for
roasters about holiday time. Roast pig
is better liked bv many than roast tur
kev, and if it were offered generally in
fall and earlv winter, it is probably the
best use to which piga dropped at Una
untimely season can !e put.
The future shape, productiveness and
value of an orchard depend mainly on
the wav it is pruned whilo young. It
requires 1'iiowledge of tho habit of
growth of different varieties to know
how to prune them to advantage. A lit
tle pruning while the tree is small pets it
to growing in the right shape, and avoids
the need of sawing oil" large limbs later,
which can never be done without inflict
ing wounds likely to destroy the vitality
of the tree. It is in pruning, more oven
than in anything else, thnt a little done
at the right time saves the necessity for
doing much more afterwards.
A 'though hops can bo grown from seed,
this is not the usual way of propagating
them. Tho best time to plant hops is in
the spring, as early ns tlio ground can
be worked. The lows aro made altout
eight feet apart and the sets planted in
these at about the same distance. Each
set has two eyes, is plan tod nbout nn
inch deep and pressed firmly down.
The first year a hill of corn may bo
planted each way between the hops, but
the second year the entire ground is to be
kept well cultivated. Where the hop Iono
has not made its appearance the crop !h
generally a very protitable one.
Many fanners who have practiced the
plan .Jconiiiiend cutting corn fodder and
piling it in small cocks to cure. In it
largo stack the heating of so much wet
material would certainly provo injurious,
but in 8innll-8ued cocks' tho fermentation
is just enough to furnish heat to dry
them out. It also softens the stalks,
which aro eaten with less waste than
those set up in stacks and dried by ex
posure to the nir. Rain does not pene
trate these cocks to anv great extent.
Farmers have often noted that tho dam
pened stalks kept in mows, even when
slightly moldy, were eaten cleaner than
those thoroughly dried.
The United States Consul at Mann
heim. Germany, reports that German
chemists have learned how to make but
ter from tho oil of the cocoanut. One
factory already produces (iOO.OOO pounds
daily, which is sold at 15 cents per
pound. Tho nuts aro procured from
Africa, South America nnd other trop
ical countries. Cocoanut butter contains
70 per cent, of fat, nnd of the remainder
one-third is composed of the albumen,
which give it a greater nutritive value
than cow butter possesses. Tho now
butter is used largely in hospitals, and is
finding its way on account of its cheap
ness t) the tables of the poor, especially
it is certainly superior ns usually mado.
Hoots of all kinds aro better kept in
nits than in cellars, where they aro ox
posed to currents of air. Homo earth
should lte mixed with them to till up tho
spaces, and tlius prevent tno evaporation
that uaually makes them dry and taste
loss before upnng. Beets and potatoes
are more easily injured by freezing than
other roots and require a double or triple
covering to exclude cold, turnips, rota
bagns, carrots and parsnips will a'l Iwai
a temperature nearly or ninto down w
the freezing point, provided they are in
contact with tho soil. Purnins with a
slight covering of tho part of the roots
ultove tho surfaco may bo left in the
ground until spring without injury, and
even with benefit. The freezing makes
them better flavored than they will be it
dug in the fall.
