WHAT flAPPF.NED AT TUB PUKK S BATIt
Ikiiric Nevel could keep no ac
count of time. Darkness, and dark
ness only, dwelt with him in his pris
on house darkness so utter that
tho only effect of opening tho eyes
was tho nervous reality of tho mo
tion. In fact, 'twas lighter with
tho eves closed than with them
opened, for when tightly closed
there were peculiar fantastic shapes
floating in tho imagination, and
even thia was a relief. And then
thero was a sort of kaleidoscopic
succession of colors when the lids
wcro tightly pressed that seemed
grateful to the nerves and gave vari
ety -to tho mind. But when the
eyes were open only a cold, impene
trable blackness was present, within
which thcro wcro no shapes, no
forms, save tho one form of utter
Iluric felt sure ho had been thcro
four days, and at times it appeared
longer than that. Food and drink
had been brought to him thrice, and
ho was now without both. His
strength had not yet left Tiim,
though thero were pains in his limbs
and a chilling sensation alwnt tho
heart. Ho had broken the rope
from his arms on the first day of hia
confinement, and he hnd hoped to
overcome tho man who brought him
food and drink and thus make his
escape, but no human lioing had yet
come in to him. His food had been
passed in through a small wicket.
"And this i tho end of life!" he
murmured to himself as he paced
slowly to and fro across the dun
geon. "Thua ends all tho hopes of
youth, and hero tho prayers of a life
time must close in ono last hope
one hope of heaven when earth has
passed away! My mother, no fare
well can reach thee from the lips of
thy son. Ho will lie down in tho
dark slumber of death, and thou
shall not know his resting place!
And thou, loved one on, thon
fondly cherished, wildly worshiped
being thv smiles can shine no more
for me ! Oh, Krwalind, would that I
could see thee but onco that once
more Imightpre,s thee to my bos
om and hid lliet; reinoiiiLicr uni when
I am gone! Had I never r-een theo I
might not be here now! And yet,
0 God, for lifo itself I f-puM not
wine away the written story of that
holy love from my heart 1"
The thought of- Bosalind camo
heavily upon him. All else ho could
give up in a higher hope than that
of earth, but for her ho held a
strango fear. She woul4 be anoth
er's. "And must it lie so ?' ho con tin,
ucd after some minutes of painful
reflection. "Alas, she will bo nothing
to me hereafter! My nmther will
know her son, but Rosalind will
know another! And yet sho may
carry the old love with her always.
Sho may never forget it. Oh, could
1 but once"
He stopped suddenly, for ho
heard footfall in the iv passage
close by the dungeon. He listened,
and he heard more. There were sev
eral feet, and soon he beard voices.
He moved back to tho extremity of
the vault and listened. The feet
stopped, and the sound of grating
iron, like the drawing of a bolt, was
heard. ' Soon afterward tho' door
was opened, and tho light from a
lantern flashed into 'the place. For
a few moments the prisoner was
blind by the sudden transition, but
by degrees he overcame the dillicul
ty and was able to look up.
The first object upon which his
eyes fell was the humpbacked priest,
Savotano. There were four others
behind him, but Ruric noticed them
not jret. He saw before him tho
man whom ho Mi.'veil to lie tho in
strument of his sufTcring, and with
one bound he reached him and felled
him to the floor.
"Hold!" cried one of the others,
ono who held the lantern. "We
have come to conduct thee out from
"Ha! Say voso?"
"Most snrefy wo have."
"Then stand aside and let mo go."
.- "Just os you say. Tho doors ara
open, and you may go. You may fol
low us, or von may go in advance."
"Then lead on," returned Ruric,
"and I will follow."
"As you say."
Thus speaking, tho man assisted
the priest to his feet and led him
out from tho cell. In a few mo
ments more tho others went out al
so, and Ruric prcporod to follow.
Ho heard tho priest cursing, but ho
noticed that one of tho others led
him off. The youth stepped forth
into the passage, but ho did not
nlaco the fullest confidence in what
ho had heard. Ho reached the foot
of the stairs, and the others were
nearly tip. He started to follow
them and had nearly gained tho top
when a quick, lightninglike shadow
flitted before him. Ho would havo
started back, but 'twas too late.
Thero camo a blow upon his head,
and, with a dull, crashing sensation,
he sank down. He realized that he
was turned over and that a rope was
being lashed about his arms.
But tho prisoner had not been
fully stunned. He returned to con
sciousness as they lifted him to his
feet, and his first impulse was to try
to force his bonds asunder, but
this ho could nqt do. He gazod up
now, and he found only two men
with him, and they wore masks tip
on their faces. They wcro stout,
powerful men, and their very rear
ing was murderous, and his .heart
sank within him.
"Come," said one of them. "YouH
go with us. We won't force you if
"But where?" asked the youth.
"What mean you ?"
"You'll see when you got there.
But there's no time to waste, so
What could the prisoner do ? His
hands were firmly liound behind
him, and his great strength availed
not a bit He knew that he could
not resist, so he simply bowed his
head in token of submission and
prepared to follow his conductors.
Rut they left him not to follow at
will. They took him by either arm
and thus led him away. He remem
bered tho room into which ho had
lieen first conducted on tho evening
of hia capture, but ho was not de
tained thcro. From here a long cor
ridor led off to where a wing of tho
building had been partly torn away,
and they soon came to a large circu
lar apartment, in tho center of
which was deep basin where in
years gone by peoplo had been wont
to bathe. Tho walls looked grim

It is apparent there will be some
opposition to Chinese exclusion on
business grounds. Already in New

secure more liberal treatment vt

the cotton industry of the South de
pends on China for a market for half
the output of cloth and in case China
should retaliate because of our re
strictions the South and the New
England States would enter into vig
orous competition for control of the
home market which now belongs to
the New England states. It Is fut
ther asserted that our iron and steel
industries are gaining. strong foot
hold in China and that for this coun
try to ask for t'hina trade and at
the same time bar their people from
our shores will not alt well on
China's commercial stomach.
There Is more noise than danger
in these aswrtion'. We want China's
silks and satins, teas and product.
China la now and always will be just
a anxious to get our cotton good

buy cheaper lu tha United States
than anywhere else. The China
man is one of the shrewdest business
men and bargain driven and no con

of stringent exclusion laws by this

not buy of us provided we offered

All Doctors have tried to cure
catarrh by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
form. Their powders dry up the
mucuous membranes causing them
to crack oim-ii and bleed. The pow
erful acids used in the inhalers have
entirely eaten away the same mem
branes that their makers have aim
ed to cure, while pastes and oint
ments cannot reach the disease. An
old and experienced practitioner
who has for many years made a close
study and rpecially of the treatment
of catarrh, has at last perfected a
treatment which when faithfully
used, not only relieves at once, but
permanently cures catarrh, by re
moving the cause, stopping the dis
charges and curing all inflammation.
It is the only remedy known to
science that actually reaches the af
flicted parts. This wonderful rem
