In the first place, my name Is Frederick Putnam. I am, and have been for the last ten years, the foreman jand bookkeeper of the large lumbering establishment of Wm. Winston Co.. I and hope to be for another decade, unless something better turns up. Mr. Winston Is the resident partner and manager of the manufacturing part of the business. The other members of the firm, of which there are two, live in' the city, at the foot of the lake, and attend to the sales of lumber, which we send them by vessels. This is by far the largest share of what the mill cuts, although the amount of our sales directly from the mill to supply the country west of us is quite large. Well, one cold December evening, just as I was preparing for home I heard footsteps on the creaking snow outside, and presently the office door flew open as though some one in haste had given it a push, admitting a tall, stout, well dressed man with a small traveling bag in one hand and a shawl over one arm, 1 was alone, Mr. Winston having gone to the house, some half an hour before locking the safe, in which we t kept our books and paper?, and tak- 1 ing the key with him. as usual. j I had already closed the damper to I the stove, put on m\ overcoat, and 1 was just In the act of turning down , the lamp--but of course I waited. , "Good evening, sir," said the man, 1 bustling up to the, stove and kicking. j the damper open with bis right foot i "Has Winston gone to the house?" I answered that he bad. "When? I was afraid of it." He drew out his watch--a. very fine one. I thought. I "T shall not have time to go up," i he said; "the train is due in fifteen 1 minutes " ] "Is there anything I can do?" I { asked % "I wanted to leave some money with Winston. I intended to stop in town a day or two, but I have just got a dispatch that calls me home." "What name, sir?" "Anderson, of Andersonville." j I knew him then, though I had seen him but once before.- He had been one of our best western customers I'say had been for the reason I that during the "past year his pay- i ments had not been so prompt. In | fact,' he was considerably behind, and I Winston had that very day told me 1 to write him-and "punch him up a i little," as he expressed It. The let| ter was then in the breast pocket of my overcoat I "You can leave the money with me, j sir, and I wil give you a recefpt." 1 He seemed to hesitate, which net] tied me somewhat I have never i blamed anybody, since, however. "How mucja is my bill, he asked, eyeing me sharply I answered promptly, for I had ' struck the balance not more than half an hour before; "Eleven thousand seven hundred and fifty dollars and twenty-three cents." "Humph! less than I supposed. Write out a receipt for that amount." He left the stove and came and looked over my shoulder as I wrote. "It is all right. Mr. Putnam, I know \ou now You've been with 1 Winston a long time. I can tell your i signautre anywhere " He drew from an inside pocket a large black wallet, i verv round and full, and counting out I eleven different piles of bank notes, he told me to run them over. It was a short and eas task, as each pile i contained just ten one. hundred dol- , lar bills The balance was in fives, tens, and j twenties, and it took more time to 4 count them; but as last we got it, so ' that both were satisfied. At this moment we heard the whis- I He for the station. Anderson sprung for his traveling bag, and giving me ! a hast} hand-khake was off on the run I I closed the door, and counted the , money again Finding it all right, I wrapped a piece of newspaper around it and slipped it into my over- 1 coat pocket I did not feel quite easy to have so I much money about me, but as Winston's house was at least a mile distant, I concluded to keep it until 'morning, when I could deposit it in I the bank I closed the damper again, drew on mj gloves, took the office ke from the nail just over the door, and stepped up to put out the light As I did so I saw a piece of paper on the floor, which on picking it up I discovered was the receipt I wrote for Mr. An- 1 derson. He had dropped It in his I hurry. I put it in my pocket, and 1 thought no more about it, only that { I would mail It to him. I would have 1 done it then, but as the last mall for j that day had gone out on the train ' which took Mr. Anderson, I could do It Just as well In the morning. Then, ! too, I was in something of a hurry 1 that night, for I had an appointment; 1 and I may as* well state here that It i was with a oung lady who, I hoped, would be my wife before many, months. i I hastened to my boarding place, atp my supper, and then went over 1 to Mr. Warner's, wearing the overcoat with the money in It, as I did not fel easy about leaving It In my room. Carrie was at home, of course, as she was expecting me, and leaving my coat and hat In the hall, I went to the parlor. I do not think a repetition of our conversation would be very Interest- Ing, so I will pass It. merely remark- Ing that nothing occurred to disturb me until I arose to take my leave. Carrie went Into the entry for my coat and hat. that 1 might put them on by the warm fire, but she came back with only my hat. "Why, Fred, yon certainly did not venture out on such a night as this without an overcoat!" "No coat!" I exclaimed In a dazed sort of a way--for tbe thought of tho money flfished upon me so suddenly had almost stunned me. The next moment I tore past her like a madman--as 1 wan. The coat WM gone! Then I was unnerved. I grasped at the stair rail, and caught It Just In time to support myself. Carrie came running out, her face pale with all at once--desperately strong. And what brought about this change? That simple receipt which I had In my pocket. Anderson had nothing to show that the money had been paid; and was not my unaided word, as good as his? . 1 was foolish enough to believe that I could brave it through, and I grew confident and quite easy at once. "There, Carrie, I am much better now. The room was too warm, I guess. So some sneaking thief has dodged in and stolen my coat? Well, let it go. It was an old one, and now I'll have a better one." But was there nothing In the pockets?" asked Carrie, It is strange how suspicious guilt will make us. I really thought that Carrie suspected me, and an angry reply was on the end of my tongue. I supressed it, however, and uttered a falsehood instead. "Nothing of consequence, Carrie. A good pair of gloves and some other triffling notions." "I am glkd It is no worse, Fred. Now, if you will wait *a moment, I will get you one Of father's coats to wear home." Thus equipped, I left her. You may guess that my slumbers that night were not very sound nor very refreshing. I never passed" a ·more miserable night, «nd in the morning my haggard looks were -the subject of remark, " ' "Why, Fred, you look as though you had met a legion of ghosts last night!" said Winston. "What Is the matter?" "I had a bad night of it," I answered, with a sickly smile: "And you have another if you're not careful. You had better keep quiet to-day. By-the-way, did you write to Anderson. I do not know how I managed to reply, for the question set me shivering from hea'd to foot, and I was so weak that I could scarcely sit in my chair. I must have answered In the affirmative, howvcr, fop he said: "Then we may look for something from him to-morrow or next day." Immediately he added: "Why, Fred, you shiver as though you had the ague, and you ar sweating like a butcher! You're sick, man. Come, jump into my cutter, and I'll take you home." I was glad of the chance to get away, #nd reaching my room, I locked myself in Winston sent a doctor around, but I refused to SOP htm. Then Winston came himself, but I would not open the door. Then the landlady cajne, then some of my fellow boarders; but I turned them all away. Ah 1 those were terrible hours that I passed, and the night coming on brought me to relief. Can you not guess what I was meditating? Coward that I was, I had at last resolved upon self-destruction. I commenced my preparations with the same calmness and deliberation that I would have used in the most common transaction. I wrote a short explanation to Carrie, another to Mr. Winston, a third for my poor mother; and I sealed them all. In a fourth envelope I enclosed the recepit to Mr Anderson. All this accomplished, I went to my secretary and to6k out the weapon of death. It was -simply a revolver, small and insignificant enough in appearance, but all sufficient. Having examined the cartridges, to make sure that there would be no failure, I sat down before the fire to gather courage. It may be interesting to know that no courage came to me; for the desperation--the growing fear of life-I can in no wise call by that name. It was simply cowardice. Yet, whatever you ma\ term it, it was all-sufficient for the time It nerved my arm, and lifting the revolver, I placed its cold, death-dealing muzzle against my forehead. In another second I should have been lifeless, but just as my finger began to press the trigger there came a tap at the door. It startled me, and hastily concealing my weapon, I called out that I could admit no one. "Not me, Fred?" I knew Carrie's voice, and a yearning to look on her loved face got the mastery of me. Quietly slipping the tell-tale letters, which 1 had left on tho table, into my pocket, I opened the door "Oh, Fred, you are real sick!" exclaimed Carrie the moment the light fell on my face "Why did you not send for me? Aren't you better?" "Worse," I answered, huskily; "but --Carrie--good heavens!"-As I uttered this exclamation I started back, and then forward, and t h e n -- - I hardly know what -- for, hanging across Carrie's arm, was my overcoat! Recovering from my astonishment. I snatched It from her, and thrust my hand Into the pocket. I drew out eleven thousand seven hundred and fifty dollars and twenty-three cents! You have heard about, and perhaps seen, tbe singular capers of a madman, or the wild antics of those crazed with rum, or the grotesque dancing of savages. Well, judging from -what Carrie told me, and from the appearance of my apartment after it was all Over, I am led to believe that, were It possible to concentrate the three above mentioned species of demons Into me, their capering and dancing would appear tame In comparison with mine that night. - But I cooled down after awhile, and just in time so save Carrie's head a thump from the chair or the washstand, which I had selected as partners In my crazy waltz Then I asked for an explanation. It was the simplest thing' Imaginable. I do not know why I had not thought of it before. It was simply a blunder of Carrie's father. He has mistaken my coat for his own. and worn It down town, never dreaming that a small fortune was lying; Idly In the pocket. Well, I didn't have 'the brain fever over the affair, but I was next door to It 1 made a clean breast of tb« whole thing excepting my attempt or rather my resolve, at self-destruction. No one ever guessed that part of it, and I tell it to-day for the first time. ! sent Mr. Anderson his receipt, handed over the money to Mr. Winston, and Went right on with my duties, a wiser and a better man, T hope.

Hi* Girl Correspondent Tells About Her Letter and Its Sequel. In 1860 Norman Bedell moved from Albion to Chautauqua County, N. Y-. remaining there for one year and then returning to Albloa. His family consisted of three daughters, who are now Mrs, George Billings, of Delphos, Kan,; Mrs. Oscar D. Eddy and Mrs. Richard Berry, of Albion. While the family was In Westfleld, in October, 1860, one of the girls--Grace--who is now Mrs. BillingO, then a school girl of 12 years, wrote a letter to Presldent-elefet Lincoln, at Springfield, 111., which noyr possesses great interest among the Lincoln incidents. Mrs. Billings says in explaining how tbe letter came to bo written: "My father, who was a staunch Republican, brought one day to me---- wKo followed in his footsteps and was a zealous champion of Mr. Lincoln--a picture of Lincoln and Hamlin, one of those coarse, exaggerated likenesses which it seems to be the fate of our long-suffering people to have thrust before them in such contests. "Those familiar with Mr. Lincoln's physiognomy, rememoer. the high forehead over those sadly pathetic eyes, and angular lower 'face, with the deep cut lines about the mouth. As I regarded the picture, I said to my mother: 'He would look better jf he wore whiskers, and I mean to write and tell him so.' "She laughingly consented and I proceeded to give him my name, age, place of residence, my view of his fitness for the Presidency and opinion of his personal appearance, and told him that I thought he would be much improved if he would cultivate whiskers, adding, as an inducement, that if he would I would try my best to coax my two Democratic brothers to cast their votes for him. "In my heart of hearts I feared that this rather free criticism might give offense, and so tried to soften the blow by assuring him that I thought the rail fence around his picture looked real pretty, and ended by asking him if he had no time to answer jny letter to allow his little girl to reply for him, "I received the following letter from him in reply; " 'Private. " 'Springfield, 111., Oct 15, 1860 " 'Miss Grace Bedell: " 'My dear little Miss--Your very agreeable letter of the 15th Is received. I regret the necessity of saying I have no daughters. I have three sons, one seventeen, one nine and one seven years of age* They, with their mother, constitute my whole family " 'As to the whiskers, having never worn any, do you not think people would call it a piece of silly affectation if I were to begin now? " 'Your very sincere well wisher. "A. Lincoln.'" On his memorable journey to Washington the following February to be inaugurated the train which bore" him passed through Westfield and made the usual stop to enable the crowd which had collected to see and hear the President-elect. Mr. Lincoln made a short speech from tbe platform of the car and concluded by saying he had "a little correspondent at Westfield called Grace Bedell, and if she were present he would like to see her." Mrs. Billings says: "I was present, but the crowd was so great that I had neither seen nor heard the speaker^ but a friend helped me forward and Mr. Lincoln stepped down to the platform where I stood, shook hands and kissed me, saying, as he touched his beard, smiling, 'You see,-I let these whiskers grow for you, Grace,' shook my hand cordially and re-entered the car and that was the last I ever saw of this tiero and martyr. "That he did not forget me I received occasional assurances, though small would have been the wonder had I been forgotten in those dreadful days wfiich followed " Orchard and Garden. Get ready to plant trees this month as soon as soil conditions permit Don't try to combine arsenate of lead or Paris green with lime-sulphur mixture. It costs twice as much to spray large, high, unpruned trees, as it does to spray low-headed, thlnned- out trees. High-priced novelties are often dls- apointing, but it is interesting to try a few each season. For main planting, however, stick to the time tested standard kinds Why not give those trees a decent meal this year? Try 1,000 pounds per acre of any good, complete commercial fertilizer. Or apply stable manure bcne flour and muriate of potash (400 pounds bone, 200 pounds muriate, per acre). Pruning raspberries and blackberries- Cut out all canes that fruited last season (should have been done last fall); also all winter-killed canes. Shorten remaining canes to three or four feet, and cut off at least a third of the long side shoots. Rake up and burn all brush In March, before the buds swell, spray fruit trees for fungous troubles, such as peach leaf-curl, scab of pear and apple, fruit rot, leaf blight, etc The Bordeaux mixture is the standard fungicide. (But remember the lime- sulphur mixture is also a fungicide; so if you use It for San Jose scale on your trees you will not need the early spray of Bordeaux.) By a little care ou can have tomatoes so early that they will be a luxury on the table, or will bring a big price In market. In February sow In a box some good seed and keep the box In a sunny window. When the plants are about three inches high transplant to small pots and set these in a shallow box. When the days are warm enough set them out-of-doors, bringing them In at night or If it turns cold. They can be easily handled In tbe box, and should make a good growth in time to be set out early. Here are a few fruit tree pruning rules: Trim a little every year, rather than much In any one year. Peach trees require more pruning than most trees: at least one-half of the new growth should be removed each season. Cherry trees icqulre the least pruning; merely cut out dead, broken or ""crossed" limbs. Other trees need a judicious thlnnlng-out, and, sometimes, cutting-batik. It two branches Interlock, remove the smaller one. Avoid cutting so as to leave "stubs": make neat cuts close to union: paint all large wounds. Be chary of catting off large limbs; if it must be done saw on under side first, partly trough, and then saw above. Prune now or In June.

Beaver falls Physicians Are Mining at Million an Acre. A vein of silver ore valued by the owners at $1,100,000 an acre is being mined by Dr. Everett W. Sheets and Dr. Henry C: Iseman on their 27-0-acre farm a mile and a half distant from Beaver Falls on the Beaver river. The vein, the physicians say, is 42 inches in thickness, and tests from 60 to 70 per cent, .pure silver. It is 50 feet below the surface of a hill, and runs across the 270-acre-farm. Beneath it is a vein of gold, and above the sliver are veins of copper and lead. The lead tests 70 per cent, pure. Four coal miners in the employ of Dr. Sheets and Dr. Iseman, are work- Ing daily to perfect a shaft and slope entrance of tbe silver vein. A track for cars then will be laid and the ore shipped to a smelter in Carnegie. "The story of the lucky strike is like the King Solomon mines tale," said Dr. Everett "An old grubstaked prospector made the discovery 32 years ago on the old Robinson farm. For years he tried to persuade Robinson to lease or sell the farm, but failed. Some time ago Robinson died. The old prospector came to mei I gleaned his secret and was urged to purchase the farm. Dr. Iseman and myself raised f l O . O O O and got the deed for the 270 acres. All those years the enormous wealth locked in those hills was kept a secret from the Robinson heirs. "Six weekg ago we drilled a test hole. Fifty feet down we pierced the silver vein. Then we made three other drillings and each test bole showed the silver chloride ore to be 60 to 70 per cent pure The vein continued undimlnished as far as was prospected, and unless it dwindles away unexpectedly the old prospector stakes his reptation that it is worth $1,100,000 an acre, exclusive of the gold, copper and lead veins. "These are of good thicknesses and if they don't disappear suddenly we expect to work them too. Some cobalt ore and some oxide of zinc also have been discovered. The prospector says we may strike some emeralds. "After sinking a shaft we began cutting a way out to the hillside, about 150 feet distant. We expect to finish this next Monday when we will begin to drift on the vein. There are no silver miners in this part of the country so we have four Coal miners working steadily. "Dr. Iseman and myself continue to practice medicine as before la Beaver Falls. Every day we drive out to the farm, about a mile and a half, and inspect the work done. If we cannot get the ore "smelted«in Carnegie we are likely to build a smelter on the farm. We have invested a good deal of money already and want to get some out of it. If the whole mineral wealth of the farm, ever amounts to $1,000,000 we'll be satisfied. It would be good business to makp a million out of a $10,000 investment." IK TBE SICK BOOH. What To Do and What Not to Do for the Patient. Sarah Adeline Hill writes to the National Food Magazine: First remember that it is the little things that annoy. I once knew a patient who was an excellent housekeeper and it made her positively ill because the sash curtains in her room did not match The hem on one was 3 inches wide and on the other only 1%. Then one hung an inch below the other one. In another case the patient worried herself into a fever because the pattern in the wall paper did not match exactly, and even after a screen hid this from view she fretted about it Yet another was annoyed because she could hear the nurse's starched shirt rattle when she walked. "You must not think these little things are all imagination to these pain-racked, neryous, feverish souls, but they are real causes for fretting. "Remember to ventilate the room thoroughly and often It is Impossible to give a patient too much fresh air. and it is perfectly safe if the patient is warmly covered. First see that this is the case. Then lower the window or windows from the top. Allow them to remain in this position ten minutes. Then open them from the bottom also. When the room Is well aired, push up the top sash and insert a thin board 6 inches wide and as long as the window is wide under the lower one. This will allow plenty of fresh air to enter between the sashes, where they lap in the center. "Another thing to remember isonce a day is often enough for average patients to have their hands and face washed Remember that either a little ground coffee or sugar burned in a room will make a thoroughlj good disinfectant. "Never serve more than four articles of food, and drink at anv one time, and serve only a medium helping of each. Never crowd the tray, but leave | plenty of room so that the patient can ' move one article without knocking all the others over. "Never whisper in a sick room. Either speak in -a low tone or retire from the room and do your talking on the outside. "When preparing the bed use plenty of safety pins. Pull the sheet well up toward tho top. Lap under the j mattressand pin in three or four places Then do the same at the foot of 1 the bed. Pin it also once or twice on each side and tuck the covers well in at the foot. There is nothing that adds -so much to the comfort of the patient as a wellmade bed with the undersheet perfectly adjusted. "Never leave cut flowers or plants in a sick room during the night, and at all times exclude family pets, for sometimes they are family pests. Never read or telate Interesting incidents to a patient Even the strongest minds are affected by these. "In conclusion, 1 would say; always try to be cheerful, careful, tactful, thoughtful and watchful, and put forth your most earnest endeavors nt all times." Licensed to Wear Panti.
