picked up a pi"-e of rough cloth and ex
amined it texture critically.
"I hid half inclined." he reflected
aloud, "to Ix-iimie a nihilist. There are
alleviations evi-n in the lot of .- tailor's

In a few moments the d-wr op-ned
again, and a stout m.iii enti-red with a

and poitiP-d to a chair.

"Yea burned it."
"Well!" ejaculated the Russian, mis

"never mind how that they all got

that is, in the early numuier of the

"Since that," inquired Huston; "not

"There has In-en no semi-official ac

"No; it has been hushed up. The of

starvation was a moral certainty."
"And," unid K.istoii, "are they at ruck

"Yes; they are struck out."
"I am coins to hxk for them," an

Th Ilussian raised his flaxen eye

"No, not condemned; they merely said.
'If you o, it will kill you.'"

"li'by !" returned Kaston. with a laugh.

crouched in a singular way on the hard
snow, supporting himself on one fur-chid
arm. lie could not stand, for he had
but one leg. The other had been cut oft'
Just above the knee a recent amputation,
rudely tied with rope, was stained a deep,
Miiggestive color. Ilis face was u horrid
night to look upon, for here and there
In the pasty yellow flesh were deep in
dentations of half healed sores, the re
Hiilt of frost bite. One eye was quite
closed by a swelling which deformed the
features and drew them all up. He spoke
in a mumbling way, as if his tongue were
swollen or diseased, and the language was
most dramatic of all tongues Russian.
His companion, a short, thick-set man,
stood beside him; but he stood weakly,
and the terribly sunken lines of his cheek
told a story only slightly less horrible
than thut depicted by the face and form
of the cripple. Roth faces alike bore
that ctrange dry look which tells unerr
ingly of starvation.

The m in ho stood eave a short heart
rending laugh as he looked out over the
frozen M-a. .
"Yes," he said, "we h.-tv tried It."
There was a pause, and then the crip
ple Sergius Pa l.kxki sMke again:
"Of Miirse." he said, almost unintel
ligibly, "we have fail.il; but still our
failure may teach others, and we hav
kept it sivref. Those who want to know
will never know. They will always lu
in im.iTtninty as to whether we have

"I hoe so."
"I. at all events, shall be, for you say
that I could not live a wvek in a warm
climate. This leg of mine Is less painful
to-day: perhaps it is healing."
"No. Pavloski; I have told you a doz
en times it is not healed, it is only frozen.
It can never heal. The moment it thaws
you will die."
A sickly smile passed across his un
sightly features, and there was silence
for a time the (l-tithly expectant silence
of the far Xorth. At length Pavloskl
raised his mittened hand and extended i:
outward like the needle of a compass.
"I wonder," he mumbled, "if Tyars 'a
"I wonder," said the doctor, "why you
intrusted this to an Knglishtnan."
"If I had the whole world to choose
from. I should not har selected another
man." said Pavloski ; "but there was no
choice in the matter."
I stipose." said the doctor, with an
ill-concealed sneer, "that he has turned

not done that !
'Then where is he?"
'Iad!" was the answer. "If Claud

pain. In his excitement he had moved,
and allowed some of his weight to rest
upon the raw stump of his leg. In a se-
ind the doctor was kneeling on the snow
be,i,e him, raising his head, touching his
lips with snow. It was a poor restora
tive, but there was nothing else at hand.
One cannot offer to a dvinic man even the
temlerest piece of an old sealskin mitten.
Without waiting for consciousness to
return, he attempted to lift the cripple,
intending to carry him witliin the little
snow hut, but the movement brought back
Pavloski's failing senses, and he shook
his head in token that he wished to be
ft where he lay.
"Xo," he said, after gasping twice for
breath; "I would rather die out here."
The diM-tor's bare hand crept within the
tattered sleeve toward the pulse. He aaid
nothing. There was nothing fo say.
"I do not want." continued Pavloski
brokenly, "to see their faces. I brought
them here. It is my fault. I supixwe
the good God will know how to revenge
all this. If they the Romanoffs the
Czar had twenty lives, and we could
take them all we might pay the debt;
but they hare only one life to take;
that would le too short a punishment.
Gol will know how to do It will He not,
Yes," said the sweet, deep voice
the doctor, "iod will know how to
"Pray," said the dying man,
Him to do it well !"
Then his head fell back and
breathed regularly and soft I v. Rut this
was nut the end. Presently the blackened
lips began to move, and lie spoke in quite
lifferent voice so different as to startle
his listener. It was soft and even, as if
recounting a dream not long dispi-Ui-il.
"It is not yet a year ago," he said.
There were seven of us four Russians,
two Kiiglislimen, iind an American. Four
Russians, two Knglishmen and an Auieri-
aii what a strong combination ! The
Russians to go into action on land, the
Knglishmen on the sea, and the sharp
witted American to watch and plot and
heme. I rememls-r the last time we met
as at Kaston's house. Two of us are
lead, and I am nearly dead. Tyars and
Grace where can they be? They are
out there, doctor, in front of us to the
north. I I shall go ami meet them."
The lips closed with a sudden snap, and
the doctor leaned eagerly forward. Ser
gins Pavloski was dead. The survivor
rose to his feet. It had begun to snow
gently and in large flakes a snow that
would cover the ground to the depth of
twelve inches in half that number of
hours. As it fell it gradually covered the
lead man, even to his face and eyes,
which were already cold.
Presently the doctor moved a little, and.
turning slowly round, scanned the near
horizon, lie could not see the pack Ice
now, for tne snow was mowing in rrom
the north, wreathing and curling as it
Then this lone man moved toward the
snow nor, unu eutereu it on ins nanus
and knees. He took no notice of the.
lead one soon gets accustomed to them
but fumbled ill. out among the baggage
led up in one corner.
In a dull, stupid way he realized the.
rcKpon.sihilitiin of his position. He drug
ged two of the sledges out of the hut, and
witli a hatchet broke them up. Then he
look the two strongest pieces of each
the cross-bars and bound them securely
together, thus forming a rough pole. Thi
he erected on a little mound where the
snow was thin, building it up with such
debris a he could lay hand upon. It
stood up gauntly, almost the only object
within sight that was not white. It wa
a mere pole, the thickness or a mail
wrist, and yet it was probably visible ten
mile off against it gleaming surround
ings. It would be good," ha mumbled, "to
be warm once more Just once."
And he piled up the wood in a Hubs
heap. He crawled into the hut and pres

Inspection by looking up to heaven. The
great snoxv-elonds were rolling south,
Itearing in their hug.-, rounded tmsoms the
white pall to cover a continent for many
months to come. Rut this man seemed
to be linking beyond the clouds, seeking
to penetrate the dim ether. He was not
looking at the sky, but into heaven. At
last he gave a contemptuous little shrug
of the shoulders, full of a terrible mean
ing. The next moment he sought for
something in the inner mi ket of his fur
tunic. There was a gleam of dull, rusted
metal, and he raised his hand toward his
open mouth. At the same instant a sharp
report broke upon that echoless silence,
and a little puff of white smoke was bor

In n number of counties lying on lsth

central jHiitiou of California, the farm

One of the most novel blinds or stalk

The establishment of creameries has
done much to put the dairy business
on a stable and protlt.ihlc basis, as well
as to provide consumers with a uni
form quality of good butter. The in
troductloii of the hand separator, by
enabling the farmer to feed skim tnllk
In prime condition and minimizing
transportation exHusc, has also d ne
much for the business. This has not
Ims-u without a drawback, however. In
that the separated cream Is not always
kept under projier conditions, nnd that
delivered to the creameries differs
greatly In quality. When all are paid
the same rate for butter fat there Is
no Incentive to careful preservation of
the cream. At the experiment station,

The War to Make liens Moult.
One of the achievements of modern
jsitiltry keeping Is that of forcing a hen
to doff her old coat, and grow h new
one before the time when she would
do so naturally. Many liens shed their
feathers so late In the season, natural
ly, that cold weather overtakes them
before they get new stilts, consequently
they seldom begin laying before spring.
If the moult can 1m? hastened, so that
n new coat of feathers Is grown and
tile laying can be started before cold
weather, the prospect Is good for a
supply of eggs during fall and winter.
The result Is usually accomplished
by cutting off ull meat and mash foods,
putting the hens on short rations of
grain for a week or so to stop the lay
ing, then allow more liberty and feed a
full ration high In protein. This loosens
the old feathers, which drop off quickly
and starts a rapid growth of the new.
A liberal allowance of beef scrap Is
essential, and linseed meal Is an advan
tage. Sunflower seeds are also good

Tape 'Worm In Turkey.
The presence of the tapeworm may

worm. Powdered male fern Is an ef
fective remedy, and may be adminis
tered In doses of from thirty groins
to one dram of the powder; or of the
liquid extract, fifteen to thirty drops.
This should be administered morning
and evening before feeding; the mini
mum dose to the younger, Increasing
the dose as they grow older. Oil of
turpentine Is an excellent remedy
against worms of all kinds which In
habit the digestive organs of poultry.
A coiiiinou remedy for the removal of
worms from fowls Is one drop of kero
sene oil night and morning. This
should not be administered to the very
young, but may be used with Impuni

The right way In cutting asparagus
stalks, sifys an expert In answer to a
question, Is to cut everything clean ur,
to the end of the asparagus season, or
up to about the time that green peat
are Mt to gather. After that we let all
the stalks grow, but if we were to cut
any, we would remove the little one
rather than the big ones. This clean
cutting Is also the best remedy for the
asparagus beetle, which gives us, some
trouble here. As long ns all the stalki
are cut, the Insect Is given no chance to
bmnl, ami later on. when we stop cut
ting, we can spray the plants with the

combination which makes an end to the
beetle attacks for a while, and also
