JrpHE "family treasure," aa It wu
J K called, for tbe Brudda were ex
' tremely proud of It, waa a tiny
Jeweled case containing a portrait of
Queen Victoria. It represented her as
a Uttle girt of about 17, and waa a val
uable title work of art.
Id obedience to bis wife's request, Mr.
Brudd unlocked the cabinet and took
the medallion from the secret drawer
In which It was kept.
"Someof thefllagree work at the back
Is Injured," aald Mrs. Brudd, "and we
ought to hare that stone replaced."
"Tea; I shall take It up to town to
morrow," aald her husband, ''and hare
It properly examined." '
lie was about to replace the medal
lion In the cabinet when hta daughter
remarked, in a tone of mild protest
"MRS. bbcdd bakdbd thb mbdalliox
"You hare not shown It to Mr. Matlock,
His position was an unfortunate one.
He had had the misfortune, or good for
tune, to fall In love with hla host's
daughter, but Mr. Brudd refused his
sanction to the match, and although his
wife lent her daughter a certalnamount
of half-hearted and hesitating support,
Mr. Matlock's prospects were not at
all rosy.
In the meantime, he waa working
hard to make a career for himself as
an artist There were many who be
lieved hlej work showed promise of
great distinction, but Mr. Matlock's In
come was microscopic.
In reply to his daughter's protest Mr.
Brudd handed the medallion to the
young fellow In chilling silence. It
was an unpleasant situation, but Mr.
Matlock was too tenaciously In love
with bis host's daughter to fret much.
It Is always a great step toward vic
tory when a man haa the women of the
family allied on his side.
"Has Violet never told yon how we
came to possess the medallion 7" asked
Mrs. Brudd.
Mr. Matlock replied In tbe negative
and begged to bear the story, while
Mr. Brudd gave an Irritable "Plshr
It appeared that Mrs. Brudd'a mother
had occupied a position In tbe Princess
Victoria's household, and her royal mis
tress had given her this little miniature
of herself as a wedding present
"Mrs. Brudd wouldn't accept 1,000
for that," said Mr. Brudd, pompously,
as he finally replaced It In the cabinet
and turned the key.
"No more would I, If It were mine,"
said Mr. Matlock, to which his host
gave another significant "Plshr as
much aa to say that what be would do
for 11,000 was f no consequence to
anybody, ij . v:- . ..
"When I am married It Is going to be
given to me," aald Violet, with a sly
look at her mother.
"Who aald so, I would like to
know?" said Mrs. Brudd.
"It was given to grandmamma when
she married, and she gave It to you
when you married; mo of coarse It will
be given to me when I marry," aald the
young lady.
Later In tbe evening It happened that
Violet and Mr. Matlock were making a
pretense at playing billiards, while
Mrs. Brudd good-naturedly performed
the duties of "marker." Suddenly It
occurred to Mrs. Brudd that her hus
band had left the key of the cabinet In
tbe lock, and she sent Violet to fetch It
Five minutes later she returned with
a white face. GIri-Uke, she had opened
the cabinet to hare a peep at the medal
lion. It was not there.
Mr. Brudd was shut up In bis library,
where be had been since dinner. Tbey
decided not to give him tbe alarm, but
to go at once to tbe drawing-room and
make a thorough search. It might be
that It bad not been replaced, though
each felt nearly positive that tbey had
seen Mr. Brudd put It back In Its recep
tacle. Tbe search was unavailing.
"It will do no good to look here any
longer," aald Mrs. Brudd at . last
"Somebody has taken It from the cab
inet That Is quite clear. Whoever did
It probably thought we should not look
for It again to-night But It must be
somewhere In the bouso. We bad bet
ter go to Mr. Brudd and get his help."
Tbe two ladles, of course, passed out
of the room first; but Mr. Matlock, In
stead of following them Immediately,
returned on tbe pretense of turning
down a lamp.
The moment he waa alone be picked
up a tiny object lying under a chair
near the cabinet, examined it closely,
and put It In his waistcoat pocket Then
he followed the two ladies to the li
brary. "Charles, the medallion Is not in tbe
cabinetl" . , ' ;
"I don't suppose It Is," aald ber hus
band, still without looking up. "It bap
pens to be In my pocket" , ....
"Thank goodness! I waa In such a
fright You are quite sure you have It
afelyf 4 -' -
"Ob, yes," he said,
j "May I look at It?" sbe asked.
' "There's no need for that," aald Mr.
Brudd, shortly. ,
If anybody bad been watching Mr.
Matlock's face they would have seen
a namused smile flicker across It
An hour later, the two ladles having
gone to bed, he went to the library.
Mr. Brudd was evidently annoyed to
see him. but tie young man declined to
notice It ' x
, j
r fwe-a e- a j ie- r- lyi
"Can I speak to you for a few mo
ments?" "Certainly," said bis boat; "but, of
course, you quite understand, Matlock,
that If you want to speak about the
subject we have already discussed you
are wasting your own time and mine,
too. I shall not consent to an engage
ment between you and Violet" ,
"Oh, It Isn't that" said the younger
man. "I want to apeak to you about
the medallion. I think you have had
the misfortune to drop the medallion
and break It"
"What makes you think that?"
"I found a portion of it underneath a
chair In the drawing-room. Here It Is."
He produced from h'.s pocket the
fragment of Ivory he had picked up
unknown to tbe ladles. Mr. Brudd
looked crestfallen. Like most over
bearing men, he hated to look ridicu
lous. He had dropped the little orna
ment tn taking It out of the cabinet,
and had gathered up the pieces, hoping
It would be possible to get It mended lu
such j way that his wife would not
kuorof the catastrophe
"I dare not tell my wife what has
happened," he said. In a tone so differ
ent from hla ordinary tone that Mr.
Matlock could scarcely restrain a amile.
"She Is almost superstitious about It."
"Anybody will be able to see that it
has been mended. Let me paint a new
portrait I could do It within a few
days, and I will undertake to say that
It will be so like the original that no
one will be able to detect the difference.
You could have these pieces put to
gether, also."
"Yes, yes," aald his host, "but what
about Mrs. Brudd? If you were a mar
ried man, Matlock, you would know
how unpleasant It Is to admit to your
wife that you have deceived her. You
see, I told her It was quite safe In my
pocket As a matter of fact at that
moment It was broken Into twenty
small pieces."
"I think that little difficulty might be
avoided by exercising some tact" said
Mr. Matlock. "I shouldn't say any
thing to Mrs. Brudd about It until the
medallion has passed out of her pos
session. When It Is no longer ber own
property she won't mind so much."
"I don't think I quite understand
you," said Mr. Brudd, genuinely pux
aled. "Didn't I understand that when Vio
let was married the medallion would
be given to her?"
"Y-e-s," aald Mr. Brudd, beginning to
see what waa coming.
"Then get Violet married as quickly
aa possible. Give tbe medallion to ber.
It will be much easier to explain It all.
I shall be very happy to help you," be
continued, obligingly. "I will not only
provide you with a new portrait to re
place the one you have broken, but I
will undertake to find a husband for
Miss Brudd, who will be glad, to marry
her to-morrow morning If necessary."
Greatly to her astonishment, VloJet
was Informed . the following evening
that ber father had decided to sanction
ber engagement
There were now two Ivory medal
lion tbe mended original and tbe
copy. Forget-Me-Not
Old Plant,
Some twenty-five years ago, when the
scoriae (or slag) produced by the an
cient Greeks In working the silver
mines of Lawlmur, near Athens, was
removed. In order to be reworked by
more efficient modern appliances, tbe
seeds of a kind of poppy of the genus
Glanclnon, which had lain underneath
tbe slag in a dormant condition for at
least 1,500 years, sprang up again all
over tbe uncovered ground. Unknown
In modern times, this plant waa de
scribed In the first century of our era
by DIoscoridea and Pliny, and had dis
appeared from the face of tbe globe
for 15 or 20 centuries. The fact that
these seeds should have retained tbelr
vitality so long seems very extraor
dinary, but there are other Instances
quite aa remarkable. For Instance,
raspberry seeds found In 1835 In an
ancient tumulus, In a coffin burled
thirty feet below tbe surface, and be
lieved to have been there since tbe
second century, were successfully
planted. And In another case seeds of
tbe Polygonum Convolvulus, dug up
from tbe bottom or a sandpit where
tbey were believed to bave been burled
for 2,000 years, were still vigorous and
produced healthy plants.
Cavalry on the Want.
Carefully collected figures show that
the proportion of cavalry to other arms
has been steadily diminishing for a
long period. The artillery has been In
creased, tbe cavalry diminished. Aus
tria, Turkey and Spain are tbe only
countries wbose cavalry exceeds their
artillery force.
Tbe Oat Waa All night,
"Mary, I hope you took good care of
my animals while I was away,"
'Indeed I did, ma'am; only once I
forgot to feed the cat"
"I hope sbe didn't suffer?"
"Oh, no, Indeed, ma'am. She ate the
canary and the parrot" Tit-Blta.
"oh, it ism't that," said thb totjso
thirty Ttlalrlcte tternri Injury to rail
sown IS rain.
Reports received by R. G. Dun &
Co. fioui their ooriesiondeiits in the
grain center of Oregon, Washington
and Idaho, show that the damage to
wheat in 44 districts runs from a uom
inal figure to 60 per cent ot the crop,
and, in a few instances, 60 per cent
is exceed. Sixteen districts stated
that there ha been no loss whatever.
Out of the 44 centers mentioned, 80
reported the injury to tali wheat and
33 the injury to spring wheat a ex
ceeding 10 pei cent The greatest
damage was caused by heavy rains, and
in many cases the correspondents de
clared that if the storms continued tbe
crops in their neighborhoods would bo
nearly destroyed. In a lew fields in
Washington and Idaho, hot weather
also had an injurious effect, and in
some instances cold weather causod the
freezing of lall-sown wheat last win
ter. Reports ot the prospects for fall trade
partook of the discouragement of tbe
farmers in the damaged districts. The
predictions, as a rule, were "fair,"
"not very fair," and "not flattering,"
while one correspondent thought it
necessay to add to these lines, "there
will be no distess," and another
tempered bis opinion "fair" with
"considering." Many who are sta
tioned in thriving places said the out
look might be called fair if the rain
would stop.

The fact is now established that the
most successful railway route, whether
you take it in the spring, summer,

Salt Lake City, that quaint and pic
turesque oily on the shores ot Ameri

the Rio Giande Western Railway, in
connection with either the Denver A

The Rook Island Railroad has estab
lished a precedent In the West by
qui pplng their engines with smoke-con-sumers,
whioh entirely do away with
the heavy volume of black smoke
whioh Is so disagreeable to passongers.
This experiment has been thoroughly
tested during the past few months, on
theii Colorado Flyer, and has proved
to be such a suooess that the Rock
Island has adopted It over its entlie
system, and, as soon as possible, all of
tlieli engines will be equipped with
this new device and Immediately be
put back Into set vice.
This smokeless firing, as It is pot per
ly called, will be valuable to both pa
tron and the road. To the patron it
does away with the black, sooty smoke
and cinduis, thus adding much to the
pleasure of traveling; and, to the road,
It is a saving In fuel as well as making
the appearance and equlment of the
traiu up to date. The good results
from this new equipment are anliinit
ed and everything is favorable and for
tbe best tutorests ot all. To make this
smokeless firing a itioceas, two things
are necessary) the equipment of the
engine with the proper apparatus neces
sary to consume the hydrocarbons,
thtown off from the coal, and the
thorough training of engineer and fire
man in the manner ot filing and the
best methods ot proceeding at all
times in ordor to obtain tbe desired re
sults. The manner of equipment Is briefly
as follows: In the fire box of the en
gine Is built a hollow b-ick arch. Be
low this and about a foot above the
grates are bored (our holes In the sides
ot the fire box, lu each ot these holes
is inserted a Sharp's patent deflecting
air tube, connecting with the hollow
arch. Through these tubes the out
side air is drawn In and, aftei being
bested, is allowed to mix with the un
cutieuuied gasses or hydiocaibona. lly
this mixing the games are transferred
into a parlect state of combustion and
in this state tbey aie consumed, and
thoroughly disposed ot, thus prevent
ing them from being forced out into
the air as is the oase today on nearly
every railroad in the United Htatea.
