As the sun was slowing sinking le--oucl
the western hills, Fred Floyd
Ionised for n few moments at the gate
of a house half concealed amid ivy and
twining roses. A fairy-like form
hastened down the gravel walk to meet
Fred Floyd was the post-office clerk
of Booueslnrg, and the only support of
a. widowed mother. Next to his aged
parent, he loved Ethel Wayson better
than anyone on earth. His love was
pure, and the beautiful girl leaning
upon the gate ga.ed into his manly
face, as Fred stood for a few seconds
to converse with her.
"I can't stop but a few moments,"
he said. "Mother is ill, you know, anil
I try to spend as much limit with her
as 1 possibly can; but the duties of the
ulllce keep me in town most of the
"Mabel Sanders is going to have a
birthday party, Fred, and you and I
are invited," said Ethel.
"Very well; if mother is better, I
will be only too glad to go," replied
At that instant Mabel Sanders rode
by upon her favorite horse, and smiled
at the young folks at the gate, who
watched the fair equestrienne as she
urged her steed forward.
Suddenly the shrill scream of the np
Ir.iin sounded close at hand, as the ex
press glided up to the station. Mabel's
horse suddenly reared in alarm, and
dashed away at full speed. The fair
rider, unable to check him in his mad
career, merely eluug to the pommel,
expecting each moment to bo thrown
headlong from the flying animal.
Suddenly a passenger from the train
ran, toward the coming horse, and
dropping his small valise, bounded out
into the road, ami sprang forward hi
time to seize the rains and throw the
""animartack upon his haunches, and
at the same time receive the senseless
form of the beautiful rider in his out
Friends soon gathered near, aud
Mabel, after recovering her senses, ac
cepted a seat in a carriage and re
turned home, while the stranger leisure
ly proceeded l the hotel.

passiiort into I he society of Hoonesburg,

gave the name of Harry Tracy, and it
was soon riiinni'cil that bc.was rich and,
his visit to tiie town was merely to
pass a few weeks' vacation during the
warm wealliei'. He soon became a
regular visitor at the home nf the
The evening of the birthday party
finally arrived, and of course Fred anil
Kthel were among the guests. Harry
Tracy obtained an introduction to
Kthel, who looked unusually charm
ing, and he paid a great deal of atten
tion to her, and secured an invitation
to call upon her.
While returning home that evening,
Fred learned from her conversation
that Kthel seemed much impressed
with the handsome stranger. Poor
Fred, he began, to hate the uewcomer.
Ho was but a poor clerk, ill-paid, and
with a widowed mother looking to him
for support, while this new arrival was
reported rich. He could see that Ethel
was dazzled by the witty remarks and
glib tongue of Tracy, atid a great load
settled upon the young clerk's mind as
he communed with himself.
Next evening, as lie called to see
Ethel, her mother came forward smil
ing to greot him, and Informed him
that Ethel had gone riding with Mr.
Fred clutched at the gate-poot for
support. He felt his heart sinking,
and a great lump arose in his throat.
Slowly, and as if in a dream, he
walked to the office. The hours
seemed to drag by wearily until
the mail was distributed, and the office
closed for the night. He carefully
avoided passing by the dwelling of the
Waysons, but reached home by an
other road. Disturlmil by his bitter
thoughts, he scarcely ate the supper
placed before him. This, then, was
the extent of her love - this her con
stancy. Another day of torture came aud
passed, Fred returned from the office,
and, ere he knew it, he was close to
the Wayson dwelling.
A musical voice souuded in his ears,
aud Ethel called to him.
"Why, Fred, what ails you? Where
have you been?"
Fred mumbled some excuse, as he
leaned against the gate and gazed in
to her face. Was it possible she could
be so fickle?
Fred, I have news for you. You
know Mr. Tracy. Well, what do you
think? he has asked me to marry bim.
and 1 have parti v consented, provid
ing mamma's willing, you know. He's
such a nice gentleman rich too."
Fred vraited to. beat no more, and
turned to go. lie felt sick at heart,
and his head swam.
"Why, Fred, why are you so paleP"
said Ethel, alarmed at the young man's
"Nothing, nothing." he faintly re
plied. "And and do you love this
man?" he feebly asked:
"Well, I don t know; I might learn
to love him," replied Ethel. She knew
that the words were cruel, and each
word sank like a dart into the heart ot
the palo ligure before her. "If we
should have a wedding, you'll be sure
to attend, won't you, Fred?"
Ktliel scarcely knew what possessed
her to speak so cruelly to Fred, nor
did she seek to detain him as he slowly
walked from her toward his hiunblu
'Well, it's best," she mused. "I'd
have to tell him any way, and now it'
done. Poor Fred! I feel sorry for bin)
but I couldn't be a clerk's wife."
And the vain girl entered the
house, not deigning to look after the
form of the one she had professed to
love scarcely a few weeks before.
The flirtation between Ethel and
Tracy had caused a great deal of talk,
and Mabel Sanders felt quite piqued to
think that affairs had taken such a turn,
for she had introduced Tracy, aud felt
sure she would tiring iiim to tier feet;
but the gay stranger had devoted bis
time to her rival in beautv and wealth
Ethel Wayson. She pitied F'red. and
sought to console him.
Mabel sent out invitations for an
other party, and urged Fred to accspt
The evening of the party came, and
sounds of music issued from the rooms
as the gay throng mingled in the mazy
waltz. Mabel looked lovely, and Ethel
never seemed fairer.
Fred sat near Mabel and tried hard
to keep his eyes from wandering over
to where Ethel sat listoning enraptured
to the voice of Tracy.
Suddenly they arose and mingled in
the dance, but had taken only a few
turns about the room, when a confused
sound of voices was heard in the hall
way and several strangers appeared,
preceded by a constable.
"Sorry to interrupt the festivities,
ladies aud gentlemen, but business is
bnsiness, you know, and we beg to be
excused while we merely do our duty,"
said one of the strangers.
Instantly every person in the room
paused, and a death-like stillness pre
vailed as the constable drew forth a
document and proceeded:
"I have a warrant for the arrest ol
Charles Sawyer, on the charge of
forgery and robbery. The person has
been traced to this'town, and to this
"What sir!" exclaimed Mr. Sanders.
"To this house? There is no one here
by the name of Charles Sawyer."
"No perhaps not; but he may be
known by the alias of Harry Tracy!"
Had a thunderbolt fallen at the feet
of the daucers it could not have pro
duced such consternation. Tracy
offered no explanation, but merely held
out his bauds to receive the manacles
that the officer produced from his
pocket, and accompanied him from the

Once, under the shadows of the elms,
she turned and feebly said:

Ere she could linish the sentence she
was clasped to his manly breast, and

The work of gathering and drying
the buhach blossoms is iu full blast at
the buhach plantation, says the Merced
(Cal.) Star. About oue hundred men
are scattered through the fields pick
ing the blossoms. As fast as they are
picked they are stowed away about
two inches deep iu wooden boxes, the
boxes being two aud one-half feet
square. Wagons are employed in
hauling the boxes to the drying'house.
Probably it is called a drying house
because it is alongside of the spot where
the drying is done. Certainly no arti
ficial heat is needed at the buhach
plantation to drv anything at this time
of tho year. The sun's rays come
down within the inclosure of big
popular trees with a force that makes
it pleasaut to stand from under. The
trays are allowed to lie there, the
blossoms being stirred uo by a force of
men mail they, the blossoms, are fairly
cured. Afterward they are placed on
a large platform about sixty feet
square, where they remain until dry,
and then are sent to the reduction
works, where they are ground Into
dust. This is done by men who aro
proof against sneezing, otherwise it
could not be doue at all. Whether or
uot it makes Hies aud mosquitoes
sneeze we dou't know, but it is cer
tainly the best preventive iu use to
keep those insects at a distance.

There is not so much tn ipiarrel over
in regard to cveninir ilrc-s. anil still a
quiet litigation is always lining ou as
to whether men are tn wear it Sun
day evening or nut. Some men un
doubtedly think it a li:irilshi to get
into a swallow-tail coat every evening
of the week. When the age for
swallow tails arrives the young man
who dons it has most decided scruples
about appearing in anjlhing else, but
those men are rare in America who
keep up the custom year in anil yea
out. One sees young married people
begin their housekeeping with string
i'iit rules in this regard, hut it does not
take long for them lo alter their views,
and iu respect to Sunday evening most
The subject came up at the Sunday
evening supper-table of a society lady
not long ago. There were four young
men present, one of whom was iu eve
ning dress. The others were not, and
after the party bad warmed up to the
subject under the gentle iiitluenee of
t'hablis with creamed lobster prepared
at table by the mistress of the house in
a silver dialing dish, reasons were
given for aud against. One man said
that he had enough of formal things
during the week and he never accepted
invitations for Sunday evening where
he knew ho wpuld have to dress, An
other said that he was brought up iu
New England, where church-going was
the order of the day and evening and
he never felt quite so comfortable iu
his dress suit on Sunday night. The
third agreed with the first, aud thought
that Sunday was a dav when formality
could be put aside, ft was the man
ivho was in evening dress who really
had the best of the argument. He said
he would no more think of not dress
ing on Sunday than on any other day.
His family dined at night on that day,
s they always did on every other, and
he could not see any reason for omit
ting wearing evening dress.
There's the solution of the matter.
It is the dining iu the middle of the
day, as so many New Yorkers do,
which produces the informality in
most houses. The lack of uniformity
in this regard prevents a rule from be
formerly there was oue very strong
reason for uot wearing eveui'g dress.
The churches held cveuing service, and
it being the proper thing to go, the
custom did uot admit of the otherwise
daily formality of dressing. There is
undoubtedly another reason to be
found why men do not find it necessary
to change their dress on Suuday eve
ning, in the fact that they are care
fully dressed on Sunday for dinner,
even supposing that meal to take place
in the middle of the day. Our leisure
class is so small that it is not worth
while to consi. -r it, aud it may be
taken for granted that on we days
Tven spend their time in the different
If isiuess pursuits,, aud that they are
glad when evening comes to get out of
the clothes they have been wearing all
day into something else. Why should
it not be the dress suit? But Sunday,
being already dressed in the 'Sunday-go-to-meeting"
garments, they find it
unnecessary to make a change.
Concerning the Hand.
Oue of the most common signs of
want of good breeding is a sort of un
comfortable consciouness of the hands,
tn obvious ignorance of w hat to do
with them, aud a painful awkwardness
in their adjustment. The hands of a
gentleman seem perfectly at home
without being occupied; they are
habituated to elegant repose, or if they
ipontaneously move it is attractively.

A Totttln M1M1 Lives ThroiiffW an Age In
A Toledo Ike mail was sitting in au
ollico on Adam street recently chatting
with the occupant, a well-known young
lawyer, when the conversation turned
to dreams and the rapidity with which
the brain worked during sleep. "Yes,"
remarked tho legal guutleinan, "the
brain is a marvelous eontrivauce. If
that fact ever skipped my memory it
was brought forcibly to my mind sev
eral days since. I will tell you how it
happened. I was sufl'ering with a
thumping toothache, and resolved to
have the offender out. Accordingly I
made for the nearest dentist's whilo
my determination was strong, and,
dropping into a dental chair answered
to his 'Will you take gas?' in the af
lirimitive. It was my initial expe
rience with the 11 1 1 1 1 1 , but 1 inhaled it
without experiencing any . peculiar
sensation at lirst.
"I noticed presently, however, that
the ollice clock ticked abnormally loud;
in fact, it soon was pounding away
like one of Krupp's giant hammers.
Finally I drifted away into, another
state and found myself in a h trail ire
city. Several inont lis passed and num
erous trivial things happened which I
remember vividly, even the minutest
details. Somehow or other I got in
with a fast crowd of young men. and
oue night, during a quarrel over a
game of poker. 1 shot and fatally
wounded one of my companions.
'I was arrested, and after the usual
preliminary proceedings my case camu
up for trial in the Court "of 'Common
Pleas. The trial was a long one. I
remember well the district attorney's
summing up and the strong defense
my attorney made iu my lhalf, but
without avail, for the court sentenced
me to be executed by electricity, a
strange and fearful death. My law
yer got a stay of execution of the sen
tence, and the ease was carried to the
Circuit court. Another lengthy trial
ensued, concluding by the judge con
firming the decision of the lower court,
and I again beeamo reconciled to the
thought of being executed. My law
yer was untiring, and finally made an
other attempt to save my life, carry
ing the case to the Supreme court. I
think something like a year and a half
elapsed before the case came to trial
for the third time.
"However, Its conclusion bore no
fruit lo my liking, for I was again
sentenced to an electrical execution.
I spent many weary days in prison,
ami it was a relief when the dav set
apart for my death came around. I
awoke early, bathed, ate a hearty
meal, and at 10 o'clock when the turn
key beckoned me to follow him to the
death-room I was wholly Drepared to
depart this lift;. I scaled myself in
the somewhat clumsy chair and my
arms and legs were strapped tightly
down. A dampened sponge was placed
on my bead, and although 1 didn't
look up I knew well that the connec
tion was made that would soon make
