In 1809 Mrs. Ruc.ynski arrived in
Detroit from Russia and entered the
House of Providence as Sister Eliza
beth Chemp. She became one of the
best known sister of charity
in the city and was the
tirst woman nurse that volunteered her
services to take are of small-pox pa
tients. She had a beautiful face and
figure and brilliant intellect. While
she was in the convent Ruczynski, who
had just graduated from a European
university, came to detroit to fill a
position as teacher in the Detroit
Polish school. Shortly after he met
Sister Elizaleth and friendship culti
vated clandestinely ripened into love.
One morning the inmates ot the home
awuke and found that Sister Elizabeth'
had discarded the veil and run away
and married the handsome Polish
teacher, Ruczynski. who was one of
the greatest scholars in Detroit, was
compelled to resign his position and,
notwithstanding repeated endeavors.he
was unable to secure another place in
any of the catholic institutions. He at
last engaged in the hotel and reastau
rantbusine s. For several years the
couple prospered and tho Polo and his
handsome wife moved in tho most
select society circles. Roverses came,
and soon the handsome and talented
couple found themselves in very strin
gent circumstances. Ruczj'nski be
came a private teacher. The
reverses caused him to become
despondent and as a consequence
ho plunged into dissipation.
The fall from their former high social
position and her husband's dissipation
affected Mrs. Ruczynski's mind, and
three weeks ago she disappeared from
home. It is supposed that she walked
all the way from Detroit to Jackson,
living in the woods until found.
About fourteen years ago a Dr.Copo.a
man of handsome and dashing appear
ance, of lino cultm'e and splendid med
ical attainments, married a charming
and beautiful girl of 10 years near
Concord, Carrabas county, X. C. Tho
wedding was the most brilliant
in that seotion of tho State. It
was the old htory of man's
downfall. The Doctor took to drink
and became an incarnate devil. In a
drunken fit he drove hi wife away
from her home, and whiUt she was
keeping horaolf fcufu from hit violence
he took their two children, both boys,
one S years old uml the other wontlm,
ana ned to Tennessee. The other
child, for three had been the fruit of
their marriage, had been nccidently
poisoned by the father in the adminis
tration of a dose of morphine for
quinine. When Dr. Cope reached Ten
nessee with tho boys ho settled at
Edensridge, in Sullivan county, and
prneticed his piofession. Ho aban
doned his dissipation to a cer ain ex
tent and in his sober moments was a
skillful practitioner. He plnced his
boys under the care of two families,

ABOUT TIMOTHY HOPKINS.
Sketch of the Youim Contestant 111
the Creut Will Cnwe.
Timothy Hopkins, the adopted son
of the late .Mrs. llopkins-Searles, is
now in the East for the purpose of fil
ing objections to the will of Mrs.
llopkins-Searles, winch has been
offered for probate in tho
court at Salem, Mass. He is a
San Franciscan, as are his lawyers,
Russell W ilscm and Judge Jiralt, who
are now with him. With them in tho
case is associated Mr. Clioate, of the
New York law linn of Evnrts, Clioate
Mr. Hopkins ;s a tall, athletic-look
ing young man with a handsome face
and a pleastnt expression. He was in
Japan when his foster mother died. and
the tropical sun has browned his com
plexion, giving a pleasant eontrnst to
the keen gray eye, while a heavy brown
mustache gives a vigorous, manly look
to the whole countenance.
He was the son of Patrick Nolan, a
farmer, of Hallowell, Me. His father
went to California and becamo tho
gardener for Mark Hopkins the mil
lionaire. After his parents' death
young Nolan was taken into the. Hop
kins family and treated as a son. Mr.
Hopkins died soon afterward, leaving
n fortune of $0, 0(10, 000 to his widow.
Then Timothy was formally adopted
as ncr son mid assumed tue lamuy
name in 1871'. Mi's. Hopkins married
Edward F. Searles, the architect, on
Nov. 8, 1088.
Mrs. Hopkins-Searles died on July
25 at her home in Methuen, .Mass. Her
will was filed lor probate at tho Essex
Registry, in Salem, July .'10. All her
property, to the amount of about S30,
000,000, was left to her husband.
Young Hopkins immediately instructed
his lawyer to contest the will Among
the other relatives interested in the
breaking of the will are Nathaniel T.
Hebbard, a cousin of .Mrs. llopkins-
Searles. and Retsy and Hester M. Sher
wood, daughters of another cousin. It
la said that it will be claimed by the
contestants thut Mrs. Hopkins-Searles'
mind was unbalanced.

How the ICxplmlvo Is Handled.
Tho factory lies in tho heart of a great ex
panse, of sandy plain on tho southwest coast
of Scotland. On approaching it a visitor is
bailed by tho mounted guard that patrols tho
environment of tho factory; and ho will have
to show very satisfactory credentials before
he is allowed to go further. On tho way to
tho manager's house a villngo is passed where
live tho whole of tho operatives employed in
tho manufactory of nltro-glycerino. It is
merely a street of small tenements standing
on tho threshold of tho luilismles which en
close M. Nonel's houses. Some distance from
tho manager's house is tho shed whero tho
practical process of making nitro-glyeerino
is seen at a glance. Reforo the visitor gets
there, however, he is divested of his watch,
chain, money, keys, and ovory particle of
metal ho may have about him. This seem
ingly excessive precaution is perfectly neces
sary, for a fall of even a penny on a lloor
containing a grain of the explosive might bo
attended with disaster. Felt shoes have to
A HKLICATK OPERATION.
In tho first shed reached there is a largo
tank iu which aro two parts of oil of vitriol
and 0110 part of tho fuming nitric acid A
cistern above tlio tank contains glycerine,
and when this is introduced into the acid the
compound known as liitro-glyccrine isat oneo
formed. Tho ojieration is, however, nn ox
tremely delicate one. Tho tank is in charge
of a workman upon whom tho solo resjKjnsi
hility of an explosion rests. If too much
glycerine is introduced into tho acids at 0110
time, tho temperature of tho mixture may
rise above "i" degs. Fahrenheit, and a spon
taneous explosion will ut once follow; so that
tho oox-rativo's eyes aro never off tho ther
mometer his own hoio of safety lies iu
keeping down tho temperature of tho mixt
ure to bomo 7 or 8 degs. below its explosive
heat. Ho is nided somewhat by ice and cold
water which aro otifcsido tho vat; but tho
comiKHind is occasionally erratic and will
gain heat notwithstanding all precautions. I
For such a case tho only alternative is to .
move a lover, which lowers 0110 sido of tho
tank, and allow tho wholo of tho contents
to run through a bluico into a pond, when
it is about an even chunco whether it will ex
plode ere it leaves tho shed or wuit until it
reaches tho open.
Tho second step is to wash tho nowly
formed chemical combination in water,
which very slightly absorbs it. It is then
put into " Winchester (marts," and conveyed
with tho utmost cure into wooden huts or
dug-outs. As an instance of tho extreme
susceptibility of mtro-glycorino to concus
sion, it is related thut a man was onco seen
to slip in tho act of depositing a bottlo in a
hut; ho merely tripped, in tho ordinary senso
of tho word, but there was an instant ex
plosion and hardly a fragment of tho poor
fellow was gathered for decent burial.
Passing on through other sheds, wo see tho
mixture of tho nitro-glyceriuo with a pecu
liar foruminiterous earth, tho new substance
being dynamite. This is then carried to a
long shetl, whero it is pressed into cartridges
by machinery, tho operatives being young
MANY PRECAUTIONS TAKEN.
Not tho least curious of tho many curiosi
ties ut these works are tho ponds into which
tho washing water is run. Tradition has it
that tho detonativo property of tho water
was not discovered, until an angler one day
attempted to seduce tho fish with a May-fly.
At his first cast, however, tho pond blew up,
and ho found himself somo liundrciiof yards
away, happily unhurt. To obviate a similar
danger now, Saturday is reserved exclusively
for cleaning tho works in every department,
and amon,,' other things for deliberately
blowing up tho ponds. After congratulating
himself on a safe journey through tho various
houses, tho stranger is upt to hurry from tho
factory and only to breutho freely when ho is
again at tho station. Ho will not have failed,
however, to notico tho many precautions
taken to insure safety for those who daily
risk their lives in these vCry hazardous opera
tions. Each section of tho operatives is distin
guished by a peculiar canvas suit with a
colored marking; no one may go on any pre
tenco leaving his own department. Tho
women work in felt shoes and buthiug dresses,
and every slnglo workman or workwoman is
striped and reclothed before going to their
labor. Tho explosive, too, aro handled in tho
smallest possiblo quantities, save in tho first
room of manufacture, whero enough is mado
ut ono time to blow up a city. Tho nitro
glycerine itself is a transparent, colorless,
oily fluid, slightly soluble in water, but
readily so iu spirit, ether or fnt. Ono favor
ite way of destroying it is by boiling it in
otash, when it decomposes, glycerine and
niter being formed. Perhajw tho most curious
uso to which it has over been put is tho result
of tho searching investigations of its medic
inal procrtiea by Dr. William Murrell, who
found it almost a specific for angina pectoris,
neuralgia and many dovelopments of heart
disease. St. James' Guzetto.

ways of making their work ornamental.
Tho pictures which they take in their studios

group was a Halloween jrty watching chest

good night," sho said, "and I was so pleased
with tho fancy that I mado this," showing a
group of white robed girls with flowing
tresses and ono with beautiful hands working
at tho curl papers on her head. Circling
around tbeso photographs was a long curl
paper, on which the words "Good night"
had been engraved iu a fantastic scroll. This
picture stretches clear across tho headboard

He Remnmbprrit tlnppy Ctilliltionit's Hays
on the Dear Old IIttntteiid.
Ho was a stout gentleman, with a silk hat
and a blue beaver overcoat, nnd when ho
stopped to look nt a squad of laborers nt
work in tho digging of the new city hall col
lar tho other morning, a place was at oneo
made for him on the heap of granito blocks
that had once been n fence Ktse. Surveying
the crowd, his eye fell upon two men who
were engaged in reducing tho recently felled
trees to suitable lengths for hauling away,
lie at once gavo vent to a sigh and sadly re
marked: "Ah, gentlemen, this 'reminds mo of my
happy childhood on tho old farm!''
Tho crowd looked at him sympathizlngly,
and one of tho number ventured tho question:
"Many n time I havo shouldered my nx at
daybreak, and gono out Into tho woods over
near Mutkrat creek, and chopped until sun
down. Yes, and I never felt it us much as I
do a walk down to tho ofllce,"
"No times like tho old times," observed a
little man in n faded overcoat: "old ngo
makes us indifferent men."
"I don't know my friend; I think I could
swing nn nx with tho liest of 'em, dumed if I
don't I" announced tho stout gentleman, as ho
began removing his gloves. "I'm going to
try if I can't get a chance."
Ry producing a silver quarter, ho was nl
lowed to take tho place of ono of tho chop
i iers, nnd, removing his overcoat, spat upon
j ln's hand?. Swinging the ax nrouud his head,
he knocked his silk hat into a wash rag and
brought tho edge down on a limb that en
dowed it with enough elasticity to can) it to
violently rebound, tho helve striking him on
tho chin. "Goshl" ho gasped, while tho
crowd fell back to a distance of fifteen feet,
"1 forgot that hat." Settling himself, ho
brought tho nx down again, with enough vio
lence to break a steel ball. Rut ho under
estimated tho distance from tho tree , nnd ho
misMMl it by a foot at least, striking tho nx
out of sight. Somo ono snickered nt this
jioint, and tho stout gentleman got three
I 'I can do itf ho gasped: "I forgot tho old

' this time overreaching his work. Tho huudlu
struck the trunk, and with a howl of pain,
ho droped the ax.
I "What's tho mutter i" demanded a boy with
I a fur cap.
j "Ouchl Gosh, all serpents! That stung
1 like bluzesl"
I Here tho owner of tho ax suggested that
perhaps he was tired. This insinuation had
an irritating effect 011 tho old time woodman,
and ho indignantly seized the nx.
I "No, sirl I can do tins for two hoursl" ho
j replied ns ho again went to tho onslaught.
' Amid tho applause of tho spectators ho
buried tho blade in tho wood and then pre
pared to cut on tho other side. Bringing
down the ux, ho sent a pound chip into his
face liko a rillo shot. Dropping tho ax ho
stepped on a bowlder and fell liko a felled
giant of tho forest into a heap of brush, from
j which ho was dragged bleeding.
A policeman and the little man in tho
' faded overcoat took him around tho corner,
