We left Waterloo station and we were

had been rationing ieacfnlly in tlie rack

way I wouldn't have given tnnch for
your chances of living: no, nor mine

bag, and aaid. "Why?"

of Versailles and went to work with a

found myself all at once out of nitro

was sorry, so very sorry, but at the
present time, in the disturbed state of
the country, etc., be regretted that it
would not tie in his power to furnish
nitroglycerin to private persons. How
over, he would do what be could, and he
gave me a letter to Colonel Majendie,
chief of explosives in London, who, be
aaid, would surely honor my request.
"That night I took the club train to
London, and next momiug at 10 o'clock
found me at the chief's office. 1 pre
sented my letter and staled what 1
wanted. The chief regarded me with
suspicion (yon must remember it was
during the dynamite scare in England),
and the more 1 explained the less he be
lieved me. Variona officers were intro
duced, one after the other, for no other
purpose. 1 believe, than to take down
my personal characteristics as a profes

you like it or no.' 'We'll see,' aaid Ma
jendie. 'You will see.' aaid L aud 1 left
"That night wben 1 walked home to
my chambers 1 felt rather discouraged.
There waa ten pounds of nitroglycerin
which 1 must have, and Lord only knows
how many people Majendie might put
in the way of my securing it 1 wan
dered about London aimlessly for a
week, and at last, when just about to
despair, luck turned. Near Birmingham
1 heard a company had been formed to
work a mine and used explosives,
1 took the next train from London and
went there. There waa a little village
near the place, and from it 1 drove out
to the works. 1 shall never forget it
When 1 got to the mine 1 met a hungry
looking man, who asked me roughly
what 1 wanted, 1 aaw be waa the per
son 1 was after. ,
" 'Come one aide,' 1 aaid.

" 'Wait here,' was all ho aaid.
"That evening 1 drove back to the lit
tle country hotel with my treasure is
the ttlatistone bag. 1 put it in the room,
locked the door and slept outside, for
I knew the fumes of the nitric acid
wonld escape through the bag. In the
morning 1 got np early and took the
train for London with my precious
cargo, At London it took but a short
time to rush into a compartment of the
Paris express, which was just departing.
"Here my real tremble began. I put
my precious bag on the frame in front
of me. The carriage was crowded, and
1 began to doze after the train started.
Suddenly I looked np. A fellow pas
senger had seized the bag and was
about to throw It to the floor to make
room for some of his own luggage.
Luckily I seized it in time, if i hadn't
well, I wonldnt hare been here now
to tell the story.
"After the train had progressed half
way to Dover one man in the compart
ment aaid: 'D n this railway semes.
Here 1 got a headache, the tim in my
life, through the ventilation.' Another
also complained of a headache, and by
the time we reached Dover there were
seven very' ill men in the compartment
"1 was ill. too. but 1 knew the cause,
tt was the fumes of nitroglycerin.
"At Dover as we got on the boat there
was another uarrow e ape. A stupid
porter seized the Gladstone hag and
tried to balance it on his bead. I res
cued it in time
"We got aboard the boat at Calais all
right and I sat pensively watching thai
infernal bag. which rested quietly, as if
it had not been tilled with dynamite
enough to blow up the ship, within ten
feet of me. The passage, thank heaven
waa smooth, but I felt pretty well done
np. I left the bag and walked down into
the cabin thinking of the custom bona?
officers who were awaiting us on the
other side. At last 1 saw a man an in
terpreter, a Frenchman and I decided
to make him help me. 1 sat down In
the cabin and began to weep it isn't
hard if yon know how. He said, 'Does
monsieur require anything? I looked
np. wijied away my tears and told him
my sorrow.
"It was to the effect that my wife was
dyiug in Paris. She had telegraphed
me. and 1 was about to soothe ber lat
moments by my presence. He became
immediately interested and begged me
to cheer up. I agreed to do so on condi
tion that he wonld join me in a bottle of
champagne, which he did gladly. An
we walked 1 slipped two Napoleons into
his hand and said:
"Now, 1 want to get away quick on
the first train. I've nothlnK but a satchel
and don't want to be detained by the
customs house at Calais. Can yon ar
range matters? He swore that he would
and kept his word. When the boat
landed my satchel was carried trium
phantly ashore on the shoulders of my
friend, the interpreter, aud 1 passed the
customs bouse without a moment's de
lay. "And so we went to Paris the Glad
stone bag. tilled with nitroglycerin, and
myself and in course of time arrived
at the (tare de Nord. I hailed a passing
cab and directed the driver to my ad
dress, but cautioned him to avoid the
rough streets on the journey. Like all
Parisian hackmen. he did just the oppo
site till 1 stopped him. 'My friend,' aaid
1, 'do yon know what's in that satchel
yon have between your legs on the box?
Well. sir. there's enough dynamite to
bluw your whole outfit to the devil, and
if you don't drive quieter the chances
are against you Von never saw a
more careful driver after that in your

the next day got up early (tor I was be
ginning to get i' f raid of that internal
satchel by this lime myself) and went to
Versailles, where 1 stored the stuff safe
ly in my laboratory and exploded it at
my leisure.
"1 wrote to Majendie in London after
ward, telling of my success, and re
ceived a short reply saying that I ought
to be in juil this minute.
"Funny, isn't it, these English of
ficials have no sense of humor?"

"It may not be inappropriate to call the

they have fallen into of watching people

those who have recently visited the tailor

Black Bucks of India,
The black buck of India Is a very grace
ful animal, weighing between thirty aud
fifty pounds. The hide of the male, when
full grown is of inky blackness on the
back, while the belly is as white as snow,
the oontrast being very striking. The
horns are black and spiral in shape, and in
length average about eighteen inches, al
though they have been known to reach
twenty-six inches. The animals are usu
ally found in herds, and are difficult to ap
proach on foot, as the bucks toss their
heads in the air from time to time In a
very graceful manner, and some of them
are almost sure to detect any attempt at
stalkiug.-8t Nicholas.

Some most excruciating pain comes from
derangement of the kidneys. This is the
testimony of Senator Henry C. Nelson of
New York as to the value of ALtcocx's
Posies Piastres in such oases:
"On the 27th of February. 1883, 1 was
taken with a violent pain in the region of
the kidneys. I suffered such agony that I
could hardly stand up. As soon as possi
ble I applied two Auoocx's Poaocs Plas
ties, one over each kidney, and lay down.
In an hour, to my surprise and delight, the
pain had vanished and I was well. I wore
the plasters for s dsy or two as a precau
tion, and then removed them. 1 have been
using Allcock's Porous Plastkbs in my
family for the last ten years, and have al
ways found them the quickest and best
remedy for colds, strains and rheumatic
affections. From my experience I believe
they are the best plasters in the world."
