"Very well." said David. "But you
ran't touch the money without the pa
pers, con you? Without talking of those
coupons for the present, what should you
ay supposing I was- to show you now
this minute one of the other papers thai
were in the box?'
"Do you mean It, David? do you mean
"I mean businuess, uncle. I mean sell-
In, not giving."
I suppose," said Daniel, trying to
preserve a calm exterior, but trembling
dowv w the K'S of his nosers I sup
pose, David, that the man who has the
bo has communicated with you because
he thinks you are my enemy?"
"You may suppose so, uncle, if you
"Tapers stolen from me papers the
Unlawful possession of whieh would in
sure him a long imprisonment?"
"Just as you like, uncle. Only don't
you see? at the first mention of the
word 'imprisonment' nil these papers
would be dropped into the fire."
"Show me prove to me that yo'i
know something about the box."
"I am going to prove it to you." Da
vid left the door and came back to the
table, standing over hia luncle. "What
will you give me. I ask you gain, for
only one paper out of the box. just to
prove that the other papers exist?
"What paper is it?"
"You shall see; one of the papers that
re worth nothing. I have actually got
It In this packet, and you shall have It
if you give me ten pounds for it; not a
penny less ten pounds. If you refuse,
and I have to take it back, ten pounds
worth of the coupons shall be torn op
and burned. To-morrow I shall come
back and make the same proposal, and
the next day the same, and every day
that you refuse you shall have ten
pounds' worth of those coupons burned.
When they are all gone you will be
"Oh! I don't know what this man
means!" the old man cried in distress.
"Nephew, I am getting tired of this.
Show me the paper if you have it with
you, and I will tell you what I will do.
I'ut it into my hands."
"Well, I don't mind doing that. If
you tear it up I shall want the ten
pounds just the same. It doesn't matter
to me If you tear up all the papers.
Now" he unfolded the brown paper
packet "what do you think of this?
The last will and testament of Daniel
Leighan.' "
He placed it in his uncle's bands.
"This Is a precious document, truly,"
said Daniel, "a valuable document. Why,
man, I've made another will since."
"I don't care how many wills you have
made, I don't care whether it is valua
ble to you or not. To me it is ten
pounds. Tear it up or burn it, just as
you like. But ten pounds."
"You are a demon, David. You were
only a fool when you went away. You
have come back a demon."
"Who made me, then? You. Come,
don't let us talk any more. There is
your paper. Give me my ten pounds and
I will go. To-morrow or next day, just
es I please, I shall come back."
Daniel Leighan's hands trembled and
be hesitated. But he did not doubt his
nephew's words. He knew that the box
had been somehow recovered, and that
the papers were within David's reach,
If not m his power.
He opened his desk and took out of it
one of those little round boxes which
are made for bottles of marking ink. A
sovereign just fits into those boxes. He
kept one in his desk filled with sover
eigns. Mary went over to Moreton once
a month to get the money for him. He
held this box tightly in his left hand, and
began very slowly to count out ten
"Here, David," he said, with a heavy
sigh; "here Is the money. If you had
read this will you would have found
yourself put down for something good.
Well, so far I forgive you. But don't
tempt me too much, or you may find my
real last will and testament a very dif
ferent thing, You are my nephew, Da
rid my only nephew and I've got a
good deal to leave."
"As for my inheritance, uncle, I am
going to take it out of you bit by bit
a little to-day and a little to-morrow. I
shall enjoy It better that way. 1 think
that's all. Oh, no! "You may be tank
ing to charge me with unlawful posses
sion of your property. If you do, the
whole of the papers will go into the fire.
Bemember that! And now, uncle, I
think I've done a good morning's work.
Take care not to talk about this little
matter to any one, or it will be the worse
for you mind, not to Mary or to George
or to anybody. If you breathe a word,
all the papers go into the fire."
When Mary came in about one o'clock
to clear the table and lay the cloth for
dinner she found her unci In a very
surprising condition. He was in tears.
Daniel's papers lay untouched upon the
table, and be had turned his head unto
his pillows, as Ahab turned his unto the
"Why, uncle," cried Mary, "whatever
is the matter?"
"I wish 1 wag dead, Mary! I wish I
was dead and bv ed, and that It was all
over! I would "ather be ill. I could
bear any pain, I think, better than this."
"Then what is it? You are trembling.
Will you take a cup of tea?"
"No, I can't afford It. I can't afford
any luxury now, Mary. You will have
to watch over every peuny for the fu
ture." "What has happened, then?"
"I am a inferable man. I have been
miserable for six years, thinking over
my papers; but I always hoped to find
them. Now they are found that is all.
They are found, and I never really lost
theiu till they were fouDd."
"Where were they, after all?"
"I cannot tell you, Mary. I only ueard
to-iUy by post by a Uttsr not by
word of mouth that they are found.
And they are in the hands of a of a
villain; a villain, Mary, who will rob
mo of I know not what, before I get
them back. lvn't ask me any more,
don't tell any one what I have said, t
must have told some one. or I should
have died. Don't speak to me about it;
I must think I must think. Oh! never
in all my life before did I have to think
so hard."
He could eat no dinner; this morning's
business had 'taken away all desire for
food. He made pathetic allusions to the
'Tome, uncle," said Mary, "you will
make yourself ill If you fret. You have
niil for sir viinr flint run Knt thi
money, and now you find that you really '
have lost it, and you cry over it ns if it
was a new thing. Nonsense about the
workhouse; you are as rich as you were
"Mary." he said. "David has been hero
again. He says It is all a judgment."
"All what, uncle?"
"All the trouble that has fallen upon
me the fall from the pony, the loss of
the papers, the very paralysis; he says
it Is a judgment for my taking his land.
Do you think that it is a judgment.
Mary? Perhaps I was hard upon the
boy; but one couldn't stand by and see a
beautiful piece of property going to rack
and ruin without stepping in to secure
it. If I hadn't lent him the money on
mortgage, another would; if I hadn't
sold him up. another would and it is nil
in the family; that's what David ought
to think, and not to come here swearing
and threatening. If it is a judgment.
Mary " He paused for a word of
"Well, uncle." she said, "we are
taught that we bring our sufferings upon
ourselves; and be sure, if everybody was
good, there would be a great deal less
suffering in the world. Nobody can deny
"But not such a lot of judgment. Mary.
All this fuss because David had to sell
his farm, and I bought it! I can't be
lieve that. Why don't other people get
judgments, then?"
"Patience, uncle. Think whatever
happens now about that money, that it
was lost 6ix years ago.
Ah! you keep on saying that. Y'ou
don't understand what it is to have the
thing you had despaired of recovering
dangling before your eyes and then taken
away again. W hat does a woman under
stand about property? David laughed.
There's something come over David. He
is just as slow as ever in his speech.
and in his ways, but he's grown clever.
No one could have guessed that David
could go on as he weut on here this morn
"What has David to do with it, un
cle?" "With the property? Nothing, Mary,
nothing," he replied, hastily. "Don't
think that he has anything to do with
it. He groaned heavily, remembering
how much, how very much, David had
to do with it,
"Can I do anything? Can George do
"George would like to see me wrong-
ed. It is an envious world. There is
one thing he could do. It seems a big
thing, but it is really a little thing. If
George would do it, I would I would
I would no; because I should only
lose the money another way.
"lou mean you would give your con
sent, uncle?"
"No no; I can't do that. I couldn't
yesterday; much less to-day, Mary."
" ell, what is this thing that George
could do for you?"
"A villain has got my property, Mary.
George might go and take it from him.
If I had the use of my limbs, I'd dog
and watch the villain. I would find out
where he had put the property. I would
tear it out of his hands if I could get it
no other way. Old as I am, I would
tear it from his clutches."
"George can hardly do that for you.
uncle. Especially when you refuse your
consent to our marriage, and are going
to drive him out of Sidcote, as you drove
David out of Berry."
"It's business, girl; it's business. How
can I help it?"
"Well, then, uncle, If you are In real
trouble, send for George, and let him
advise you."
"George, advise me! Mary, my dear,
when I begin to want advice of any man,
send for the doctor and order my coffin.
I might use George's arms and legs; but
my own head is enough for me, thank
you. There is another way," he said.
"But I doubt whether you have sufficient
affection for your uncle to try that way."
"Is it something that I could do? Of
course I will do it, if I can."
"Will you? It's this, girl. Hush! don't
tell anybody. It's this: David has got
a secret that I want to find out. Now,"
his voice sunk to a whisper, "David was
always very fond of you, Mary; and he
Is that sort of a man as a woman can do
what she pleases with him. Pretend to
let him make love to you pretend that
you are in lova with him. Wheedle the
secret oat of him, and then tell me what
it Is."
"And what would George say while I
was playing this part? Uncle, if you
have such thoughts as that, you may
ejtpect another judgment."
He groaned, a good deal shaken and
agitated. Then he dropped asleep. But
his slumber was uneasy, probably by rea
son of his agitation in the morning; his
head rolled about, he moaned in his
sleep, and his fingers fidgeted restlessly.
At four o'clock he woke up with a start
and a scream, glaring about him with
terror-stricken eyes, just as be had done
once before.
"Help!" he cried. "Help! He will
murder me! Oh! villain? I know you
now! I will remember I will remember
I will remember!" Here the terror
weut suddenly out of his eyes, and he
looked about him In bewilderment.
"Mary! I remembered once more. Ob!
I saw so clear so clear! and now I
have forgotten again. This Is tbt sec
ond time that I havs seen in my dream
tha man who took my rapers and my
gold the second time! Mary, if It cornea
gain, I shall go mad. Oh! to be so
near, and to have the villain In my grasp
and to let him go again! Mary, Mary
the loss ef the money, and the dream,
and your cousin David-all together
will drive me mn.l!"
This was truly nn auspicious evening
for me to present myself with my newly
recovered bug. However, ignorant of
the morning storm, I walked along,
thinking how I would give the old man
an agreeable surprise. His room, when
I called, about eight o'clock, was gloomy
and dark. Mr. Leighan was sitting
still and rigid, brooding, I suppose, over
David's terrible threats.
"What do you want?" he cried, sharp
ly. "What do you come here fur? I
am In no mood for idle prating."
"I am come on your business, Mr.
Leiichnn. If you call that Idle prating."
"Tell It. then, and leave me. Young
man," he said, pitifully, "I am old now,
anil I am in grievous trouble, and I
cannot see my way out of it. Don't
mind if I am a little impatient."
"I won't mind, Mr. l.eiglinn. Mean
time, I iiave come to please you."
" l on cant. Nothing can please mo
now, unless you can make me young and
strong, and able to throttle a villain
that would please me."
Then I begsn. with the solemnity with
which one leads up to a dramatic situa
tion. "Six years ago, Mr. Leighan, you said
that you had been robbed of a bag with
twenty pounds in It."
"A bun. He of papers and a bag with
twenty sovereigns. I did. Good heav
ens! one man comes in the morning about
the papers, and another in the evening
about the money. Go on, go on I cuu
bear it all."
"There is nothing to bear, I assure
you, Mr. Leighan." 1 said, a little net
tled. "Was that bag of yours n brown
canvas bag with your Initials D. L. uu
it ?"
"I thought so." he replied, strangely.
"So you, too, are In the plot, tire you?
And yon are come to tell me that I shall
have the bag back without the money,
are you? George, I suppose, will appear
next with another piece of his conspir
acy. You are all in a tale."
"I think I had better finish what I
have to say as quickly ns possible. You
are in a strange mood to-night. Mr.
Leighan, with your plots and conspira
cies a very strange mood! Is this your
I produced It and gave it to him.
"Yes, it is the bag 1 lost. I m;vcr lost
but one bag, so that this must be the
one. As I said the bag without the
money. Well, I don't care. I have had
greater misfortunes much greater. You
have come to tell me that the bag was
put into your hands."
".Not at all. I found the bag; I found
it on the top of II a mi I Down, hidden
beside the Gray Wether Stone."
"Very likely." He tossed the bug
nside. "Why not there as well ns any
other place, when the money was one
out of it?"
"Mr. Leighan, the money wns not tak
en out of the bag. It was hidden away
at the foot of the Gray Wether Stone,
where I found it by accident, nud here,
Mr. Leighnn, are your twenty sover
eigns." I took them from my pocket and laid
them on, the table in a little pile. His
long lean fingers cIosd over them, and
he transferred them swiftly to his pocket
without taking his eyes off my face, as
if he feared that I might pounce upon
the money.
"And what, young man. do you ask
for your honesty in bringing me buck
mv money?"
"You might have kept it. I should
have been none the wiser. You are
rich, I suppose, or you would have kept
it. Many young men would have kept
it. Can I offer you a pound yes, a
pound! for your honesty?"
"No, thank you, Mr. Leighan; I do not
want a reward for common honesty. Be
sides, you must thank George Sidcote,
not me. It was George who discovered
that it was your money."
"As you please as you please. In
London you are so rich, I suppose, with
your writing, that you can afford to
throw awny a pound well earned."

Call Him "Kuhbcr Horse."
"The rubber horse" Is the sobriquet
given by the members of No. 1 truck;
company, Harrison street, between
Fayette and Baltimore streets, to Dum
barton, the great gray gelding that
helps to pull their apparatus to fires,
says the Baltimore News.
"The rubber horse" has the peculiar
faculty of being able to stretch him
self exactly as a oat sometimes does
in front of a fire. When he Is a little
tired or feels that his muscles need
relaxing, Dumbarton stretches his
front legs directly In front of him,
betiding down on them until they nre
almost flat on the ground and extend
ed In front of him, while his back legs
and hind quarters appear from his po
sition to be lifted upward.
The first time thut Dumbarton per
formed this contortion wns on the
street while he and his wagon mute
were waiting for their friends to ex
tinguish a blaze. The position wns so
unusual for a horse to take that the
firemen around the truck wngon
thought that the anlmnl hnd n fit of
some kind nnd rushed forward to raise
him up. But Dombarton, with a twin
kle in his eye, seemed to say, "I wns
only doing a little contortionist stunt
for you," and slowly regained his feet.
Sometimes Dumbarton perforins bin
contortionist net in his stall, but ho
generally does It while lie Is standing
on the street, and when he elects to
perforin a crowd nhvnys gathers
around the "rubber horse" to see him
stretch like a cat.

The KHrct of Nttro-Culture.
Erroneous statements which have re
cently been appearing In the public
press regarding the free nnd unlimited
I distribution of Inoculating material for
i leguminous crops Is likely to cause
those who apply for these cultures to
be disappointed. A circular of the de
partment of agriculture now announces
that the results obtained, with pure
cultures in Inoculating leguminous
plants has resulted in such a demand
for this material that the facilities of
the department huve been taxed to
their utmost, and for some time It has
been Impossible to meet the demand.
The patent which the department
holds upon the method of growing and
distributing these organisms was taken
out In such a way that no one can
maintain a monopoly of the manufac
ture of such cultures and so as to per
mit of Its being taken up ami handled
commercially. The commercial prod
uct Is being handled quite generally
uv seedsmen. Uimhi application the de
partment has furnished all necessary
Information to the bacteriologists rep
resenting properly equipped concerns,
but it cannot assume to make any
statement which could In any way be
regarded as a guarantee of the com
mercial product, nor Is It prepared to
Indorse each and all of the somewhat
extravagant claims occasionally made
for this discovery. The latest of the
department' authorized statements

A tourist
in the West
has pub
llshed the
1 1 o n s of
houses nnd pulleys on wells which he
saw in Colorado.
Of course, these are familiar ob
jects to almost nil country people;
but nevertheless there are many wells
that go uncovered. It Is not a great
matter, it is true, but still it is worth
the cost and trouble to put n neat
roof, closed In, over the well, for the
protection of the rope, If one is used
and also for keeping dirt from falling
into tho water, not to speuk of pre
venting danger to life.
The old-fashioned open well Is no
longer used to any great extent, but
when it Is, using a bucket nnd pulley
or windlass to draw the water has the
advantages of economy and simplicity,
not to speak of plcturesqueness, but
the water Is not made any better by
the well being open.
Feeding of Injured Iforaea.
Feeding plays a more prominent part
In the healing of wounds In farm ani
mals than is commonly supposed. This
applies in particular in the case of
horses. It is a well-established fact
that liberal feeding with grain is very
injudicious when animals are suffer
ing from severe wounds. Such feeding
li found to "Lnflaniu" the system, and
to retard rather than hasten the heal
ing of any Injuries from which the
animals may bn suffering. For this
reason veterinarians always recom
mend (be use of cooling, laxstlvs foods ;
such as bran mashes and gteeu stuff,
In all eases where animals nre laid up
with deep seated Injuries, such as
broken knees or deep cut wounds.

There wns a time, though It was
ninny years ago, when the big boned

pounds, was looked for by the buyers

weighs from I.1MO to l,5tH) pounds.
We have long since found out that
the cheapest meat Is made on young
animals, and the money thus Invested

Not only Is the money tied up longest
:n old animals, but the cost of pro
ducing meat on them Is so great Hint
our best beef feeders are no loiigur t
attempting to do that. The method J
now Is to keep the animals growing
right along from birth to the period
when they weigh what the market do
inn lids.
Steers are now ready for the market
at two years old or under. If all the
animals shipped to the slock yards
were of this kind there would not be
much complaint about poor returns In
stock breeding and beef-making. A
good many farmers nre still trying to
make protltable beef tin old steers. But
the young steer Is the only animal that

In a recent report, published by the
Iowa State Dairy Commissioner, the
average cost of producing one pound
of butter Is given ns follows:
In the creamery that makes 40,fKi()
pounds of butter per yeiir It costs 4
cents to make one pound of butter, and
In a creamery producing ,Vi,hs pounds
It costs .1.1 cents to make one pound,
while in creameries muklng l.V ),(;
pounds per year It costs only l.W." cents.
In some of the very central plants
that are producing over IKsi.otN) pounds
of butter per year It costs, 1.4 cents
per pound.
These figures clearly show that the
larger the creamery the cheaper but
ter can be manufactured, and they also
show that It takes about 400 cows
tributary to one factory before a profit

lished. Cow Feed In ir.
The food supplied to the dairy cow
Is designed to serve two purposes.
The first, ami the one that always
does and always must take precedence,
Is the keeping up of the inaclilne'ry of
life. The animal heat must bo main
tained, and the constant wear and
waste of the bones nud tissues of the
body must bo rcpluccd. AH this must
be done whether any milk Is produced
or not. If suitable material then re
mains it will be utilized for the sec
ond purpose of the food, which Is the
production of milk. The man who
gives his cows but little food can ob
tain but little milk from them, simply
because they have very little material
from which to make It. This rule up
