Ledger WARNED BY A MOUSE Eo-w It Helped ©race Rrvington to Discover an Intruder. The old manor-house at Barton Bridge, although one of .the quaintest and most picturesque houses in this side of the county, was not half so well known as it deserved to be. Cut off from the high-road by a clump of .ancient and well-wooded wych-elms, the few travelers who passed by the plantation gates plodded or drove wearily' on up the steep hill beyond it, reached the top, admired the view away across the valley of the Bar, and little dreamed of what'a curious old mansion lay hidden among the trees. Its master and owner, John Trowbridge, was an old-fashioned bachelor, -who prided himself on three good things —old books, old wine and old friends; and though he had few of the last, and their visits were few and far between, he r always boasted that they were "enough for him, and enough was as good as a feast." It wasa lonely place, too, ten miles from the county town, and six from the station: .while the whole hamlet of Barton consisted of about a score of cottages, all clustered round the tiny church, half a mile down the valley below. The Squire, therefore—as foe was eterywhere called— when not busy in his library, troubled his head about few things beyond his own domain, lived in a royal sort of cozy comfort on half his income; and gave np most of his time and thoughts to the care of his niece and ward, Miss Grace Uivington, declaring at times she was the plague of his life; and at others, that without her he didn't know what would become of Barton manor. Left an orphan when a mere child, with a fortune of twenty thousand pounds on doming of age, she had grown up at last to b« as willful, high- spirited and charming a young lady as could be found in all the county side.- In short, she was the old man's pet, and managed by dint of coaxing, flattery and scolding to have her own way, "in things little or big," as John Trowbridg-e often confessed. Mis favorite name for her was "the little witch;'ya wee body, bnt with a mind and a spirit in it big enough and determined enough to managC'the most fussy and troublesome horse in the stable, or out of it." These were the two who' sat chatting together one wintry evening in November, on th,e day of her coming of age, when, contrary to all custom in such cases, and in defiance of his urgent entreaty, she had insisted on having no .dinner party and no birthday celebration; but a quiet time "just for us two," she said; "and 1 can have you all to myself." Dinner was over, the wine and walnuts were on the table, and that was •wheeled tip to the blazing wood-fire, Graves, the butler, had departed, and at last she could spea% freely. "My dear, dear uncle," she said, "there never, never was, and never will oe any thing half so beautiful _as the necklace you gave me this morning. I had it-in my pocket all dinner-time, and -was longing to look at it the whole time. But why did you spend so much money?" "Why, my dear? Well, because you are such a naughty, ill : tempered, ngly little shrimp; and I determined that people should look at your diamonds tomorrow, if they wouldn't look at you. As to money, child, I only had them reset; they were my mother's fifty years ago, and her mother's before that—a wedding present from that old Jack Trowbridge whose eyes are now looking down at yon from the other side of the room. -Gentleman Jack, 1 they used to call him when he came hack from India and brought the diamonds with him." "Look," she said, taking them'out of the dainty morocco case—"see, how they shine in the light of the fire! I ahall be as grand as a queen to-morrow night at the ball; and in that lovely dress from Paris, O uncle! the very happiest girl in Cornwall! What can I say, what can I do, to thank you—the dearest, goodest, wisest of old uncles?" "Well,.if you won't have anymore - wine, Miss Gra.ce. Rivington, say goodnight; be off to bed, and lock up your necklace in a safe place, and keep the 'key in your own pocket. You'll have a thousand things to do to-morrow; so go now and get your beauty-sleep, that you may look your best at night Half the women will go crazy at the sight of your necklace and gay feathers; and all the men about your lovely face. ^But, mind, the first quadrille is for me." They chatted on for Awhile, arid she playfully reminded him that only a month tcfore he had utterly refnsed to have a dance at the manor house, or to let the place be turned upside down for any such nonsense. "And now," she added, "here you arc decking me out like a queen, and begging for a quadrille'." • " "You're a witch, my dear, neither more nor less, Jfnd you know it; and I am an old goose, and I don't know it; so, good-night" _ . In less than an hour from that tune the diamonds were safely locked up in an old oak cabinet, and the happy owner, like most of the household, sound asleep, and dreaming of all the joys of the coming morrow. The morrow came, as most to-morrows do, in good season, heavy with clouds at first, but slowly breaking out into sunshine at last Miss Grace Paving- ton,after her beauty-sleep, came down radiant to breakfast; and that being over, sent off a special messenger to her special friend Florence, at the Grange, with the following brief note: "MY DEAR FI.ORUIE: Come over at once, if Only for half nn hour, and you shall see tho loveliest necklace to be found in Cornwall. I am to wear it to-night. G. K." It was but a short walk from the Grange to the manor-house, and in less than an hour after the dispatch of the note the two friends were in full talk by the side of a roaring wood fire in Grace's own sanctum, a cozy, snug room, with oak paneling and old oak furniture, which opened out upon the lawn. The two girls were in high spirits; the necklace was duly admired, looked at again and again, carefully put away and locked up; and then came the discussion of dresses, laces and partners, about which last point there was a considerable difference of opinion, as great almost as the difference in the personal appearance of the ladies themselves. In that difference, in fact, j lay the strength of the friendship. Florrie was a tall, dark brunette, with an abundance of black hair; a loud, rather masculine voice, and a still more • masculine manner, dress and tastes. "And now, Grace," she said at last, "put away all the fal-lals, and I'll tell you all about yesterday's doings, when you shut yourself up like a hermit, instead "of being out in the finest run for the season. There were four of us from the Grange, and about twenty other red-coats besides Charlie Burton and a couple of militia-men; and we went straight away for Barton Edge, a downright spin of fifty minutes without a check. Then we ran him in and killed in the open. Comyig back, we found again—another forty minutes; lost him, and then home by the harvest-field, where Jack and I and the two militaries went in'for a rat hunt, with a couple of terriers." "Glad you enjoyed it, my dear; but no rats for me; I hate the very sight of one. The mice behind this old wainscot are bad enough, and terrify me out of my wits sometimes. I am actually afraid of them, and uncle won't have a single cat in the place, so that we are fairly overrun with them. Ten to one if I only open the door of the old press out flies a mouse, and away I go as fast as my legs will carry me." "0, Grace! what a coward; afraid of a mouse! Never mind, dear; with that necklace on to-night you'll carry all before you—red-coats and black, ol3 stagers and young dandies; they'll all fall in love with that charming little witch of a.face of yours. You won't be afraid of them, mice or no mice. I shall stand no chance; but it's time for me to be off; so good-bye, my dear, un 1 -til eight p. m. 1 shall come early. I'll go out by the window and cut across the lawn." It was six o'clock p. m. and Grace Eivington, after an early dinner, had gone up to her own room for the important and laborious work of dressing for her first ball. It had been a fine, calm day for November, the .fire _of wood had all but died out and the window was still ajar as her friend had left it in the morning. But as it grew darker and colder, and the serious business of Ithe night had to be begun, Grace closed and fastened it, and going to the . opposite side of the room sat down in front of a large eheval glass, and, as many a pretty girl has done before, took a calm survey of herself and determined to wear tJie white dress. As she looked at the glass, into which the flickering fire now and then threw a fitful touch of light, she 'was suddenly startled by a slight rustling sound behind her, as a mouse dashed out and scampered across the floor, and then turning her. head she saw, to her utter horror, a pair of eyes watching her from one corner of the room, among the curtains, where 'the mouse had sprung out! For a moment she was utterly paralyzed with dread; and not daring, or able, to "move, was about to cry out for help. Luckily for her, the cry was stifled, and then, with a sort of desperate courage, she turned back to her old position, and again looked into the glass, as if nothing had happened. At the very first glance, the two terrible eyes seemed to be still fixed on her from-among the dark .folds of the curtain; and she shuddered as .she looked- It was clearly some scoundrel who had hidden himself there for some plan of robbery, and her life for the moment was in his hands; and all depended on her success or-failure in lulling him into a belief that his presence had not been detected. After a minute of sharp thought, her usual resolute will prevailed; her courage rose and her plan was formed. Without rising from her chair, she drew up to her side a small writing-table, calmly lighted S. wax candle, and began writing a series of pretended notes, sealing and addressing each, as if for the post. Over the fourth of these notes she seemed 1 to "take much trouble, and, as if riot satisfied with-it, began to read aloud short bite of it as she went on, with an occasional word of comment: "We depend on your being here, my dear Jennie, in good tune, to-night, whatever the weather be; and 1 send this by a special messenger to say that we shall keep you until to-morrow. 1 have heaps of birthday presents to show you, and the loveliest diamond necklace." As she uttered these last words, she suddenly stopped, and said. as a whisper to herself: "Whv, •™™, u a goose I ami Old Foster the jeweler has never sent back the rings and necklace, though he faithfully promised I should have them in good time this morning. Jane must go for them at once, or I shall not get them in time." Then, having scaled up and directed the last of her pretended notes, she walked with trembling steps to the bell-rope, pulled it, waited for a moment and next Unlocked a drawer and took out her jewel-case. As she did so the. door opened and the servant appeared. "Jane," said her mistress, "tell Richard to take this note to the Grange and this to Dr. Forbes 1 at once. There are no answers, but as he comes back call at Foster, the watchmaker's, with the other note and ask for my rings and necklace which he had to clean. As it's getting late, he had better take the pony. The necklace he can • put into this box; Foster has the key." And with these words she handed to the servant hcrprecious jewel-case. In another moment the door was shut and Grace once more alone, with the pair of-eyes watching her intently from behind the curtain. The owner of the eyes had seen and heard,all that had happened, and, though slightly puzzled, thought it best not to move as yet; especially as he saw that the young lady was calmly going on with her toilet and had lighted two wax candles. Meanwhile Jane herself was slightly puzzled, but, being a well-trained servant, obeyed her mistress' orders. "Here, Pachard," said she, "Miss Grace says you're to take the pony as sharp as you • can and leave these notes at the Grange and at old Forbes; and as you come back call at Foster's for some rings and a necklace that's to go into this case." In five minutes he was on his way. The three notes he carried with him were duly delivered, and read with amazement by the recipients. The one to Dr. Forbes ran thus: "MY DEAR DOCTOR: Don't be alarmed though I beg you to come straight to the manor house when you have read this. Say nothing to the servants, but make your way quietly up to the oak room, where 1 wait your coming. Uncle i* away at the magistrates meeting. Lose fcpt a, moment. '•GRACE RIVISGTOK." The second note was this: "MY DEAREST FLORRJE: A mouse has got •into the oak room, and here I am a prisoner; send your two brothers at or.ce to deliver me— at once. Ever your affectionate GRACE." Foster, the watchmaker, utterly and hopelessly puzzled, read as follows: . "MR. FOSTER; Take thebox which the bearer will give you to Barnet, the parish constable tell him to bring it here to the manor bouse at once. G. Rrvisoios." Old Forbes was the first to recover from his amazement and, after a mo ment's thought, to hurry down from his surgery and rush out of the house— armed with a case of instruments and his biggest stick—without a word to wife or servants, or to himself, but, "What on earth is that witch of a gir up to now?" He ran as hard as hi could, and in ten minutes, red-hot anc breathless, reached the hall door of th< manor' house, where he -was wel known. "Parker," said he to the astonishe< footman, "Miss Grace says I am to gc straight to her room without being an nounced. J know my way." Then hi walked quietly upstairs and knockei at the door of the oak room, and a' once entered. His patient, with a pale face, and he long hair streaming down over he shoulders, was sitting in a low chair in front of the mirror; the fire had die out into white ashes, and the dim ligh of the two wax candles left half th room in darkness. "Grace, what has happened? Are yo- iU—here, all alone?" And then came a dead silence, mor terrible than any speech. She tried t speak, but for many minutes the effor was vain, and ended in a few broken words. While the agony of suspens and fear lasted, she had bravely kep up her courage; but now with gafet had come the reaction. Her nerves after being strung up to the higbes pitch, suddenly- collapsed; and th doctor was fairly puzzled. But at last after a sharp effort, came an intellig ble sound, and she stammered ou "Not ill, doctor, not ill; and not alone he is there behind the curtains!" Before he could ask: "Who or what i behind the curtains?" out stepped Mi Sikes, to answer for himself, a commo roadside tramp of the lowest order, wh that very morning had begged fo broken victuals at the kitchen door an been rewarded with beer in honor the day. "All right, governor," say Sikes; "you needn't make no fuss. 1 ain't done no harm to the young lady; and the winder bein' opear'you see, 1 only comein to get a rest." But at this moment there was a sudden and tremendous clatter on the any minute. And now, ail my-dear, •ood friends, a thousand thanks to you, very one! But begone, all of you, for he clock has struck seven, and I have o be dressed before eight!" In spite of all difficulties, however, Miss Grace Rivington, in her white ress and wearing her diamond neck- ace, was the admiration of all behold- rs that night at the ball. She danced many dances, and not a few with Jharlie Burton, who after his marriage old inii this true story.—Chambers' ournnl. FISH CULTURE IN FRANCE. ho Method of ProptiKfttion at tho Parll Aquarium. In Paris an aquarium is maintained or the purpose of breeding fish for re- lenishing the rivers of France. • A uantity of California salmon are kept i a tank specially constructed for the rarpose of artifical breeding, which at a ertain time of the year is carried out in he following manner: The water is educed to a low level and a number of iperators enter the tank, and, forcing Before them a wire screen, drive the ish to one end of the tank- This is generally a very troublesome operation, as the salmon resist most vigorously, requently jumping over the net and necessitating an active chase of longer luration, as %; 'case may be. When he fish are all Inclosed in one part of he tank 'a certain number are taken out and carefully examined. Each female salmon is made by pressure to re- ease the unfertilized eggs which it contains, which are received in an iron bucket. After this is'done the salmon, s released and allowed to swim away into the free part of the tank. When a sufficient quantity of spawn has thus been collected ' in the bucket a male fish is caught and squeezed carefully by the hand of the operator. The eggs are impregnated with the generating fluid thus obtained, and after having been left for some time in the bucket for fecundation are transferred to the water in a separate tank, where in due time they are hatched. The method employed in the aquarium is called the dry method, as the eggs are received in a receptacle which contains no water, and the generating fluid is poured directly upon them. It appears that this mode involves less loss than the wet method, which consists in receiving the eggs in water. The oper- • ation described takes place three or four times a week from the beginning of October to the middle of November. The task of catching and transferring the fish is said to be a very arduous one for the men engaged: who have to be from two- to three hours in the cold water engaged in continuous struggles with the powerful fish. It is not uncommon to see one of the men knocked clean over by a blow from the tail of a twenty-pound salmon. One of the results of this mode of artificial breeding is that more than 200.000 healthy fish are transferred to the river Seine every year.—Chicago News. TRICKY RATS. Out stairs, and in rushed not only the two brothers from the Grange and the parish constable, but the whole troop of terrified servants. In the midst, however, of all the noisy confusion, congratulations and outcries that followed. Silks continued his speech, with the same unblushing impudence as he had be"un: ."And to: think, now, of being took in by that there young gal, a-know- in' all the time that I was behind the curtains, and she ready to drop at a mouse!" When Grace had reluctantly swallowed a glass of, wine, recovered herself enough to tell her brief story and regain her birthday necklace, then arose a fierce discussion as to what was to be done with Mr. Sikes. "Constable," said the old doctor, "tie that fellow's hands behind him and lock- him up .in. the Clink until the Squire comes home; and first give him a good ducking in the horse-pond." . But then the vagabond altered his tune, and put on sueh a piteous look, and told such a miserable whining tale of starvation, and misery, that Grace's voice prevailed; though he did not escape his taste'of. the pond. "Let him go, let him go," she said, "and take him away at once, before the Squire comes back, which he mav do at well satisfied tfat SUKTACLAUS SOAP !f.i!?r: BEST LAUNDRY5cAPii?tl]e World :\;-d ! use ihn &JI nty vkshu# & VK&Cft Ckkrfb •xnc Oldest Game of Ball, Court tennis is the oldest game of ball that we have—that is to say, it goes back farther in its present form than, any other.

Found About the Undents. Rats have always been credited with great intelligence. Then- tricks sometimes rise entirely above the level of mere animal cunning- and reach the domain of humor. A family living on the West side, says the Buffalo Express, has been both amused and annoyed by the doings of a rat in the cellar. To give an outline of the creature's career would fill a book, and only a few of his feats can be. referred to here. Heap peared to delight most in carrying things about the cellar, and his favorite freight was eggs. The eggs were kept in a box with a cover shutting- close down over it. not a mere lid, but a real shutter with a rim on it. This rat cared nothing for that, but not only carried off the eggs as fast as he pleased, bul he always shut the cover just as he found it. It is said that rats carry eggs between their fore paws and walk on their hind ones like a kangaroo,, but nobody appears to have found out just how this one carried on his business. The eggs would be everywhere found about the cellar and the most unaccountable places, sometimes'.stowed" away in a corner with something thrown over them to cover them up, sometimes tucked into holes in the^vall, but none of them were ever eaten by Sir Rodent. He did every thing just for the fun of -the thing and never -for plunder. _ But somehow the'family didn't take kindly to the rat and his ways and unfeelingly set a trap and caught him, when he was dispatched just as though he wasn't a bit of a genius. But still the eggs turn up in unexpected parts of the cellar, just to remind people of the sharp quadruped that. once had the run of things down there. The last discovery is of two or three eggs on top of the bricked wall of the furnace, which not only rises perpendicularly from the floor nearly to the next floor, but has apparently no approach on which an animal could walk. How did the creature get them there? 'A Man with Three Arms. The unusual sight of a man with three full-sized arms and hands may be daily seen upon the streets of Marbette, B. C.
