She must be sick," said Kttie Hall
to herself, "or else slie would have

Somehow things are arranged very
ptrunjroly in this world! I onn't under

have done that I should be rich and
courted, white Justine Maynard. who
was my classmate at Madame Paulini's,
trims dresses for a living. She isn't to
blame because her guardian was a
villain. I deserve no credit for the
aktllful management of Uncle Crotch
ley, whereby my dollars all became
f-a'glea. 1 only wish ' would let me
divide with her but she has too much
of the haughtv Mavnard blood in her
veins for tiiatl I'll go to see her."
And Kttie Hall ran up stairs into a
little boudoir to tie on her hat. Just
as she came out, the maid brought up
a card on a silver salver.
Ettie' a tell-tale eyes sparkled as she
glanced at the Roman lettered inscrip
tion on the one side:

Justine Maynard's little room was
no luxuriously- appointed nest of lace
and gold anil Axminster. Btre and
cold, and poverty-stricken, its cracked
walls and sloping roof gained no glow
from the rosy sunset; and Justine her
self lay on the bed, with hands pressed
to her throbbing forehead.
"Only a headache, dear," she said
essaying a faint smile, as Ettie Hall
hurried toward her. "That is all. And
I have been a little worried with the
landlord; he will be back again
presently for the mone that I shall not
be able to give him. If he wor.ld only
wait until tomorrow."
"Let me pay him, Justine.

Ettie turned and for the first time
saw a folded dress u)on the table a
robe of wine-colored satin, richly
trimmed with costly thread lace, for
Justine XLtynard earned her bread by
the toilsome plying of her needle, a
dressmaker, poorly paid, and 6tung by
many a chance word and cutting
"Jnstine," said she, "I've an idea,
I'll take this dress home for yon. I'll
get the money and bring it back."
"Verv good sense on the contrary."
And "Ettie deftly placed it. within
sheets of brown paper wrapping and
tied it up.
"Come, where is it to go?"
"To Miss Fernley, Middleton Square.
Oh. Ettie! how shall I ever pay you for
all your kindness?"

closely over nerTiat that Justine May
nard never saw the deep ttye on her
cheek. She was almost sorry she had
offered to take Florine Feruley's new
dress home. For a second her resolu
tion wavered, and then she reproached
herself for even that second's inde
cision. "I'll be back very soon, dear," she
said stooping to press her cool lips to
Justine's fevered brow. "And I'll bring
the money, too, or I mistake my own
talent at the debt collecting business."
She hurried away with the bundle
neatly balanced in her arms, and
walked rapidly, lest her resolution
should fail her. It was not a long
walk, for the Fernleys lived in Middle
ton square, but a few blocks distant.
And Ettie went up the steps of the
marble fronted mansion, wondering if
she should see Markham.
Ettie Hall wan not certain, but she
was beginning- to suspect that 6he
likeu the handsome young fellow,
whose dark eye and jetty curls were
such a counterpart to her own blonde
beauty. Nor was she altogether dis
pleased with this curious adventure
which was leading her toward him.
A smart, blue-ribboned maid came
to the door.
Yes, Miss Fernley was at home,"
and with a supercilious insolence which
made Ettie's bhwd boil, the girl point
ed rip a dark stairway.
Just up there and you'll find her.
First door to the left."
Miss Ettie Hall followed the direo
tions and found herself in a twilight
apartment, where draped mirrors and
sweet faint scents betrayed the mani
fold mysteries of a younr lady's toilet.
'What's wanting? Why can't I
re mv nap in peace?" querulously de
Kdedi Florine Fernley s voice. "Oh,
it is that everlasting dressmaker.
Mark! Mark! I want $10." -
"So do I ten thousand," retorted a
familiar voice from the next room.
"But I can't have all I want."
"You borrowed twenty of me to hire
that nonsensical opera-box."
"'That was business, my dear."
"Business! Nonsense! Give me the
money, I say," fretted Florine.
"Yes, business, my girl. Heiress
hunting is as much business as specu
lating on Wall street, and the fair
Henrietta is a fish that won't jump at

"Hush!" cried Florine, sharply, and
then, turning to the soi-disant" dress
maker, she said:
"It isn't convenient to pay you to

Struck by some accent of her tone,

They Caught Their Lawyer.
When Judge McCreary, the member
from Kentucky, was a rising young
lawyer in his native State he was en
gaged once by three gamblers to de
fend them in a criminal action before
a Circuit Judge. The case was such a
poor one for the defendants that Mc
Creary advised them to let him plead
guilty" for them and pay their tines.
This "was agreed to, .and when the case
was called McCreary arose and said:
"I appear for the defendants and
The presiding Judge noted this down
aud' replied: "Mr. McCreary appears,
pleads guilty, and is fined. "
"But," protested McCreary, "I am
doing this for the defendants, and I
have not yet received their lines."
That makes no difference," retort
ed the Judge. "You have been fined
by this court aud you are committed to
the county jail until the tine is paid."
The future Governor saw the wis
dom of a speedy settlement, and drew
on his private purse lor the amount.
The best part of the joke was that
when the gamblers found that they
were to be tiued so heavily by the
court they made their escape, leaving
their confiding counsel several hun
dred dollars out of pocket. Judge Mc
Creary there and then resolved never
again to defend any gamblers. And

KILLING RATS BY ELECTRICITY.
The Remarkable Invention of m Scientist
at St. Ianl.
The reporter followed the electrician
down the stairs. An underground
apartment about 40x60 feet was en
tered. Like a terrible giant, a dynamo
was revealed in the darkness. Little
flashes of electricity were seen spark
ling on the ends of the brushes. Great
pulley wheels, over which the leather
belting was rapidly gliding, hung just
over their head.
"Come this way and let me show
you my mysterious apparatus."
Together the two men groped along
until they reached the side wall. Here
they stopped. The gentleman seemed
to the feverish faucy of the reporter like
a magician. He reached up somewhere
iu the darkness and turned on the cur
rent into an incandescent lamp. There
was not much disclosed. A simple
wire with a hook upon the end, and that
"Wait a moment, please, and I'll
show you how the things works," said
the electrician. He reached up in the
darkness again and brought down a
piece of cheese. Taking this and a
saucer full of sawdust to a faucet in
the wall, he dampened them thorough
ly, explaining that water was a good
conductor. Returning, lie placed the
saucer of dampened sawdust on the
ground under the wire above mention
ed, and stuck the cheese upon the hook.
He explained the modus operandi of
rodent extermination thus:
You see Mr. Hat walks up ou the
damp sawdust in the saucer. Con
cealed in that is a wire connected, as is

The patrons of n hotel in San Fran
cisco, much frequented by farmer and
tnitiers, were considerably startled one
afternoon recently when a tall individ
ual nitti bright green hair, whiskers
and eyebrows walked up to the desk
and calmly registered as Charles. W.
Long, from Ward. Ner.
The clerk, used to almost any kind
of strange visitors, stopped short in
the middle of a sentence intended as
an answer lo aa Inquiring guest who
wanted to know when the 9 o'clock
train for the north would leave, and
with a puzzled look eyed the verdant
arrival. The loungers around the
lobby were attracted one by one, and
gazed with wonderment at the green
haired stranger, who. unconscious of
the sensation he created, quietly asked
to be shown to a room. A reporter
ventured shortly afterward to inter
view Mr. Long, determined to find out
what business a man with such a queer
colored hirsute appendage had outside
a dime museum, and received the fol
. lowing explanation from the emerald-
hued individual's own lips:
I "I have for some time been working
In the Martin White mine at Ward.

' Is a common sight where I came from.
I We have lots of green-haired people
.there. Every shade of green, from the
darkest bottle color to the brightest
grass-green. is represented In the men's
hulr at that mine. The reason for it is
j connected with the ore. The latter is
j base, and it is necessary to roast the
j whole of It. During the roasting pro
' cess no disagreeable fumes are obserr
, able, yet the hair, the beards and the
eyebrows of the men engaged about
the works are soon dyed a bright and
"In scores of Nevada mines ores of
various kinds are smelted and roasted,
but at none of them is either the hair
or beard of the workmen changed
from its naturat hue.
"It is said there is less arsenic in tbe
ore of the Martin White than in that
of many other mines. Oid smelters
say arsenic has no such effect on the
hair, and all declare that the green
color imparted to it is due to the pres
ence of some unknown and mysterious
mineral or metal.
"White, light or sandy beard and
bair take a grass green, whereas black
or dark brown hair is dyed a deep bottle-greeu.
The bair is not injured by
tbe color, and retains its original
strength and stiffness."
This is the manner in which Mr.
Long explained bis extraordinary ap-
oearance. He will remain here for
some time, and even if be escapes the
ever-vigilant agents for dime museums
and is not hired as a freak for one of
tbese establishments, be will certainly
create a sensation on tbe public streets
every time he ventures out for a walk.

So the next day Jokey got the pipe

The Kitchen of tho Church.
The mission chapel has become a
kitchen where the church does its
sloppy work. Hundreds and thou
sands of churches iu this country
gorgeously built and supported that
even on bright and sunshiny days are
half full of worshippers, and yet they
are building mission chapels, because
bv some exuressed or implied resmla-
tion the great masses of the people are
, kept out of the main audience room.
Aow. 1 say that any place of worship
which is appropriate for one class is
appropriate for all classes. Let tbe
rich and the poor meet together the
Lord, the Maker of them all. Mind
you, I say tbat missiou chapels are a
necessity, the way churches are now
conducted; but may God speed the
time wheu they shall cease' to be a
necessity. God will rise up and break
down the gates of tbe churches that
have kept back the masses. And woe
be to those who stand in the way!
