The Test tfAll Tests. The severe analytical tests to which the various baking powders have from time to time been placed have demonstrated clearly to the public the relative merits bf.the different brands from a scientific point of view. The official Government investigations, for instance, have shown that' the" Royar' Baking Powder gives off the largest amount of leavening gas, and therefore is the most economical for general usei They also show the Royal to be absolutely pure and. wholesome For these reasons the; Royal was recommended, for uses, and it is now used in the War and avy. departments.

But the crucial test of the kitchen jsafter all, the most satisfactory to the baking powder thatjiever fails to make light whole-some and palatable bread, cake, is the one that will be selected by the practical house- keeper and received into4er kitcherteontinHous use. This test the Royal stood for twenty-five i years witoou-'ialuiand hence its reputation as the best-baking powder made has spread from house to house; "its use has become as universal as its merits are 'unrivaled. puvsiotoo-Y. er SjOvk. if" a- i TUB COMPOSm OIM.

The lady to whose appearance my friend objected wna a 1'hiladelphuui whose claims to knowledge of millinery laws or even power to make them would be respected by Ward McAllister, bhe was handsome, middle-aired and in light mourning. Her black foulard gown was looped ith yellow white ribbons, and her large poke hnt of black lace straw carried a wreath of black flowers on the outside and had two narrow bands of white velvet drawn about the nnder side of the brim.

The Photographic Section of the Brooklyn Institute is getting nn excursions this sum mer to different points in the suburba, aud these are nt tended by quite a nunnoer or women with their cameras.

Miss Mary Now ton, whose mother is Chairman of the Lx-ecutive Committee of Soros i and who is in her tastes an artist, is one of the enthusiasts. and Mrs. Cornelia Hood, who is now part owner of Alias Mary i Seymour I Musmess onion Journal, is another.

It is one of Clara Morris hobbies and her fine horses ere her favorite subjects. Ada Kenan got a camera ims spnug, inougn now mucn sue is aoing with it I do not know. She ought to find plenty of picture material and plenty of peo ple oi congenial tastes in lxmuon.

A woman to be sympathized with Is Mrs. Cleveland. She is rather given to hobbies but is shy of indulging her tastes, because everything she does brings on her so many eves. She is fond of the violin, but after her music mistress was interviewed her enthusiasm appreciably declined. She is fond of the camera but does not like to be seen with one in her hand.

Still she has made a fair number of snap shots and is probably making more this summer at Marion. A sense of the humorous crops out in her cnoice ox subjects. A taste for Uie camera once fully developed there is no telling where it will lead a person. It will take you to Alaska to picture Indians, as it did Mrs. Piatt, or through the vale of Cashmere famed for many things but more especially for shawls, as it did a woman who has wandered twice round the globe in search of It will take you up into the Ctitskrlls where photography is a regular ftpbrt with the Onteora colony or to Asbury Park where the confirmed photographer has no respect for the cloth, but takes an exhorter in full tide of admouition.

tJopyrigtit A Talk With a Professional Render The Manuscripts of Weil-known Writers. Some skepticism may be pardoned re garding the truth ot the sensational story which has been Qaehed under the oceans, and la now surprising the literary world, to the effect that Kobert louis Hteveneon nas incited our a Ha mean mountain slope as a permanent home and will at once begin to build a house. To whatever extent the gifted author of "Jekyll and Hyde" aiay in dulge his passion for studying wild andmnra-siiliar life in the remote nooks of the globe to which bis yacht carries him, it seems Improbable that his numerous litemry engagements can ad mit oi a nome.a place rar removed from the centres of thought and study hundreds of leagues. Indeed, from the nearest literary conveniences ami secluded from the world's activity and progress.

Mr. Htevenson signature is fl-appointment to those who believe that au author's personality shown itself in his handwriting. lt la small, fluent, delicate and almost graceful; indicating none or his weird oiigiuality In writing; anil none of the forceful disregard for conventionality which the author shows In his speech; and his dress.

11 Observers who believe that a man tiro re himself to some extent in his handwriting could And many instances to support their theory In the MHS which come before the eye of a professional reader," and not a few instances which would puczle their faith. In any event they would learn much of what the curious public ia ever eager to learn. Harold Frederick has a bold, simple and) easy handwriting which le a Joy to the heart of the professional reader," and the writing of James Partonie like unto It. Elisabeth Htuart Phelps tnta a quick and nervous hand and her manu script is Oiled with erasures and interlineations'.

Frank Dempster Sherman prints his poems with a fine pen, forming beautifully delicate lettere, his manuscript being almost as delicate and lucid as his verses.

only more so. Mrs. Madeline Vinton Itablgreen'a cblrography is massive and aothlc with lofty arches and sky aspiring l's. Anna Katharine Green's handwriting is delicate, graceful, imaginauve ana setut- tashlonabie. "Writers who send In several manoscripta in the same euolonure make a big mistake," was the Information recently vouchsafed to me by a reader for one of the weekllsit.

It Is much better for a writer to take little additional trouble and mail the articles at Intervals of a day or two. Few reader care to recommend more than one out of ftnir or Ave short stories sent at one time by the same author, and It Is frequently the case that two or three of those same stories might be recommended If a week elapsed between the receipt of each story. When an assortment of short stories, poema, sketches and comics is received, the lmprassloo given Is distinctly unfavorable. The Idea of the sender ta too boldly evident. Perhaps I'll make a strike out of the lot ln Is easily read between the lines.

Many publishers require their readers' to keop an elaborate record and Index ot all arliolee submitted, and the work of euch readers is increased disproportionately when a Job lot of star Ice, poems, ka received. As for serials, ft is In moat cases comparatively simple to Judge of them. Just now the maga-sdnes and the higher grade weeklies have fewer serials than was the osee fifteen or twenty years ago. at which time aonie of the weeklies used to pi hit as many as six serials in each Issue. To-day, however, most of the superior periodicals use only two serials, some of them only one aerial Consequently, only a serial of special has any show of being accepted.

Accordingly, the niche being so small, most aerials proffered are rejected otf hand. As a novel publlfthed serially must be in a aerial form (that It be dlvitled Into Inst ailments nearly equal In length, and have a rattling old-school suitpcnseful climax), and as many new writers do not write hi pursuance of this requisite, many novels which would be Saleable aud bright in book form are thrown out by readers" for magaslnea and weeklies. Above all, a aerial must have a halr-lfftlug first Installment. It must lose no time In description and analysis, but must get down at once to action; the description and analysis may come along about the third or fourth Installment. But the fact Is that a serial by an unknown author has not one chance In thirty of acceptance.

Most publishers have stored in their wire anywhere from ten to twenty-five or thirty serials by etandard and popular authors, and these may have been awaiting Insertion anywhere from, six montbe tc three or four years or mors. With sttah. a wealth of serial fiction on hand and wiih. lessening demand for fiction on the part of readers. It Is not strange that magaxine publlnhers nltuuid be reluctant to aocept a serial, no matter how from an unknown genfue.

Just now magasines and weeklies are on the lookout for short sketches ot travel, adventure, exploration, which are capable of bluu-re and artistlo UlustraUon. Ktrange life and scenery In remote nooks of the earth, picturesque features of metropolitan life, higher phases of sports, religious practices, ko In fact, anything of Interest which can be illustrated from photograph or by the fancy of a creative and poetical artist, have a better show for aoceptani to-day than notion. By the way, amateur photography la destined to play a dictatorial part In the weeklies.

It is impossible to tell over night wlto may be attacked by tie photogTaphio mania.

Yon may go to sleep meditating peacefully on the prospect of a cool wave and waVe np with thoughts ot film rolls and snap shots and developeis and the alleged ease ot pressing the bntton while a benflcent providence does all the rest scurrying like so many microbes through jour brain. The virus works with unbelievable rapid ity. In ten minutes yon see an iceman who would make a capital character study for a villain. In two hours you are listening eagerly to instructions about focus nnd exposure. In six hours yon are training confidently on a Brighton Bench belle emerging from tne water in a wet oauitng suit, in twelve hours you are tilting the pan hopefully in an improvised dark room, most likely the bathroom with blankets pinned over the windows.

In twelve hours and five minutes you are examining your first plate nervously by tne lignt or your red lantern In twelve hours and six minutes you are BTr.lniming: "fogged!" in accents of wild don pair. In twelve honrs and ten minutes you are drinking Hme inice and water, a la Bean Brtiminel. and exnlainine to your in terested family that 44 it's curious what an amount of interest some people will take in such things." euch is the run of an ordinary attacK ox the disease, acute but brief. Some people have it banter. Mrs.

1 nomas j. naa hnd it very hard indeed. This lady was one of the first victims of the camera epidemic. It was four years nco or thereabouts that she begun to use her husband as a model and immortalized tha ex-Senator in all sorts of dignified and undignified positions and occn-Dations. hen she got a line series of views of him loading stones on a barrow, wheeling the barrow and laying a walk, somebody suggested, "Labor vote, transparencies, use in campaign "Loads are too small," said Tom Piatt, astutely, make the workingaian grin." The pic tares of immigrants that Mrs Piatt took at the Barge Oftice and on the Bur-gunda a month ago and other steamers more recently hnve turned out very nicely.

She has been down the bay with a labor inspec tor and interpreter nail a dozen times, and has now a collection of turbnned Syrians and chunky little Italian girls in long ear rings, and tali and stnl wart Irish girt, nnd weather-beaten old women from the Welch mines and pictnresque Norwegians, Hungari ans and representatives or every nation tnnt sends its surplus noon lotion to our shores that is enrpnssed only by the photographic art gallery of Mrs. Bruce Isiuny. The im migrants have shown themselves willing to pose for her. once sntislied she was not aim ing at them a new sort of dynamite gun, but on her Inst vuit a Kusian Jew in a long cloak of the hue of his lontr trrav benrd in sisted with so much dignity that "his face should not be stolen," that Mrs. Piatt gave her word she would destroy the negative.

The leonine old Russian may have been looking forward to the day when his descend ants should be the Vnnnstor bills of the twentieth century and object to any record of their origin. Mrs. Bruce Ismnv nhotogrnnhs shiDbonrd life, as a nnme connected so intimately with the In man line would suggest, and has perpetrated groups that would make the fortune of an if he could reproduce in color the faces of some of these new citizens of our new land. I am told that the Battery under the old remme at Castle Garden fascinated her. and thnt mnny of her inobt unique pic tures were obtained by snap shots at the lately landed." issuing smule tile upon the implifl It pavement looking about them curiously nnd in wonderment.scated on the park benches looking over the water or volubly greeting half-Americanized relatives.

Ihe women who uhotoEraim do so with all sorts of cameras, from thnt which is sold for 25 cents and takes a single picture before the exhaustion of its usefulness, through a pin hole instead of a lens, un to outfits costing hundreds of dollars. Ihere is one young women, and a very graceful and dainty one, whose father has many skekels, and who, when she goes off on a photographic excur- i si on is followed by a negro servant, who car- lies ner tripod and adjusts it witn great nourish of elbows and conspicuousness of testh when she has chosen her point of view. When the exposure has been made, with a I tink we got 'er dafc time, suah, missy," he packs up the impedimenta and joarneys on. It may be well to add that the young woman in spite of this pomp and circumstance of photography, takes artistically composed pictures. Most women bitten with the craze use the hnndy little portable cameras, or detectives, but even without the services of a colored porter there are a number who manage the tripod variety.

Last summer at one of the Seidl Society's meetings at Brighton Beach there was a pretty scene when Mrs. Elizabeth Cody Stanton consented to be placed in position and was photographed by a daughter of Olive Thorne Miller. Mrs. Miller's family seems to be photogrnphic, for she has two daughters who are given to shutting themselves up in dark rooms, but who cannot, with all their snapshot work. aetverv close views of the sky feathered songster tnat are ttieir mother especial stndy.

One of the mo successful women photographers left America for Russia a montn ago. Mrs. Kergins Schewitsch, who was the beautiful Helena von Hacowitza and whose career has been as romantic as that of any living woman, nod tne race ot one to whom life had brought contentment, but showed a restless energy that did not disdain au outlet in half a dozen fads, photography being the most zealously followed. Her specialty was the portraiture of children, and I remember chatting with her one bright morning in the park when a white-capped nurse came along with a Kate Greenway urchin that could just toddle, 44 Will you lend me that baby The aristocratic nurse looked np at the tall, blue-eyed blonde woman and stared. I only want to tike ita picture." The stare began to spell itself glare.

"Come, little one," ant! Mrs. Schewitsch conauered the baby's heart with a smile aud an outstretched hand. The nurse had to follow willy-nilly, and for half an hour Uie woman who played so strange a part in the history of German socialism sat on a rock a little away from the track of pronie-naders nnd studied the baby as it tumbled on the grass, catching it in all aorta of fat-armed and chubby-kneed attitude. A scientific phototirnpber is Uie little dark- skinned Mine. Alice Le Plongeon who spent so many years in Yncatan with her husband, studying the relics of lost races, it is a com mon enough thing with amateurs to call themselves photographers though they do nothing more tlum make the exposure, send-iugplates or film rolls to the studios Of professionals to be developed and printed from.

But Mine. Le Plongeon struggled with photography in the depths of tropical wildernesses without the amateur's most ordinary conveniences, making pictures with wet plates which she herself prepared often nnder the most unfavorable ana disheartening conditions, Her work is wonderfully strong and even in ita excellence, and to sit in her library studio, den, by whatever name yon choose to call her workshop is to look round on ruins of temples, monuments, statues, inscriptions until you anticipate the feelings of Macau ley's Mew Zoalander who may one day stand on the wreck of London bridge ami speculate on the forgotten civilization of the British Isles. Mme. Le Plongeon makes her own lantern slides from her photographs and when she lectures, her husband manages the stereopticon, she performing the same service for him at his lectures. Miss Katherine Weed Barnes goes into amateur photography with whole-souled en-thusiaaro.

Miss Bnrnesisa niece of Thur-low Weed, and having plenty of money she dor-! not stint herself in the number or the costly appliances of her cameras. If she wants to find ontif she likes a thing she buys it aud tries it Thus it comes about that she owns twenty-six different photogrnphio cameras aud has fitted up a studio that wins exclamations of admiration and despairing envy from its visitors. Miss Barnes has paved the way for the admission of her sex to photographic societies. In photographic exhibitkius she has stood consistently and logically against the absurd ladiee prizes maintaining that women exhibitors should not be set off in a class by themselves to compete only with one another, but that men and women should contend without sex distinctions, on the same footing, sVr the regular prizes. She has lately become one of the editors of the Amwican Amateur There is no tine In mixing much In the company of amateur photographers unless you share their enthusiasm.

Get half a dozen of them together and they will begin about "pyro" and 'irou developer" and 'bromide prints" and "color aluesand their language will depart so far from every day English that you speculate whether they are talking Sanskrit or Choctaw. This is how it happens with some of the women artists who nwt nhotographv as an adjunct tostetch-Ing. MiBS Agnes Abbott, for example, who has done mnny good things both as flower aud InndBcape painter, makes considerable use of the camera to give her in a minute detail would tuke hex hour to bring nmrvEK HITS, I1 At ffnrden pRity out it FlaslmiK, topk Jslnnd, last week, there tm some attracuve dressiuif.

Latin and mathniUc leave us quickly enough alter we get Into m'tive lire." We were bwiUh. around a welt-laden mble in an uudergraduate's room, talking over our salad dayi.

What wn your mow umonunaio oecajmue. old man anked uomebody. Well, that la hard to soy I naa so many, i remember our, however, that Caused me a deal of aunojance. It happened in this way My rHm-mate and I had lust uurcbaned anew table for our parlor. It wan not a very handsome table, but It nnd some peculiar virtue iuai miuie yi grwti value to us.

It had two tops arranged by clamps In such way that If one was in uae It could eaallv be taken off and tha other substituted. To one acquainted with student life the great valuo or wis arrangemeui win ue tu uum oufMu uu number of times in our college course been surprised by some Profeseor on a calling tour wben our room wan full of men drinking beer and eating cheese. Tliis, of course, had given the room a bad reputation with the Faculty, so we had resolved to guard againet auy attch unfortunate renamtrt in tbo future. Bo we had purchased tills patent adjustable table an a defenne for the character of our room, thiuking that by its aid our lost reputation for virtue nnd steadiness might be regained. Ono nttcht, therefore, we invited a number of our friend to partake of beer and crack-era with us nnd made our arrangements to deceive snv Professor who might wander in upon us.

W9 placed one of the tope upon Una frame and covered it with beor bottles, chseaes and crackers, and in a corner of the room, supported on two chairs, we stationed the other top. This one we covered with books, magazines and newspapers, to give It an Intense literary appearance. As tho evening wore along we grew very Jolly and all thoughts of interruption had left our minds. Ktorles and songs and Jokes were plenty and nothing bad happened to disturb our hilarity excepting the sudden illness of my chum, who had gone to bed with a severe boadache. His own bed chamber was full of tne extra furniture that we always put away somewhere to make more room in our parlors wben we had our small parties, and so he had gone to sleep In my bed.

While I was trying to decide which of the invitations for a bed for the night I should accept, there came a alow, stately step on the lower stairs. At once all was consternation, but with great presence of mind I told two of my friends to remove the top from the table, white with another's help, placed on it tho top with the books and nniors. When this was done a new difficulty arose. What should we do with the beer bottles and cheese There was no room in the bed chamber that contained the furniture, so there was no alternative but to place the top and its load upon my ova bed. Carefully and silently we laid down the load upon my sleeping chum.

Inwardly praying that be would not awake. Then, shutting the door, we returned to the parlor. The room had had a very different appearance than wben we left it. A fire In the grate lent a cheerful look to the room, while grouped around the table was as studious a crowd of young mouasever gladdened the eyes of a Professor. A knock was hoard at the door and in walked the President of the college with his dignified carriage and stately manners.

Ho seemed much pleased at the evj. douce of literary tntereet we displayed, and the oonrerHation flowed along In a pleasant and enay manner, and I began to congratulate myself on the success of our deception. There was certainly a suspicious odor of beor and cheese In the room, but the worthy doctor's none was not familiar enough with the smell to notice It. We wore talking of the education of the ancient Grecian youuis. wnen sumiemy tne quiet was nroaen oy a fierce yell followed by a tremendous crash, liy heart came Into my mouth, fori knew well what hud happened.

Un the Instant the door of my room wns thrown open and a strange sight appeared. My chum, pale and frightened, stood there in his robe do chain bre, covered with beer aua cracker crumbs, in his tangled nairbita of cheese could be seen, while from his head to his heels he seemed fairly bathed In beer. Him face wore a wild expression, as if awakened from a deep sleep. In the background a dim mass of mingled bed clothing, table top and broken class was seen, while there rolled out slowly a big round cheese Into the centre of the parlor floor. I do not know what kind divinity sent us aid In this trying moment, but as we sat there looking at each other in a dased sort of way, the gas began to flicker, grow dim and finally went out entirely.

Then, 'mid the ftarkuess, we heard a heavy form groping for the door and a mild, end voice said uoou-ntirht, young Down the stairs went that heavy, lately tread aud we were left alone, while the dying embers cast a sort of ghastly light through the room. our new tame was never used again, but the Old one came back to Its accustomed place and It really made no difference, for tbo Faculty ever afterwards shunned our room, and our reputation with tbo in was Irretrievably ruined.

One day you may remember It, Scheim one day I asked you to lend me money. You refused. You said yeu would rather buy me. Perhaps you will tell me honest men do not make such bargains. But I do not pretend to be honest In that sense of tho word, and I'll show yon presently what I am.

Too will And out the difference between me and those good people who have forgiven you and refuse to be avenged on you." Miller bent lower over the prostrate prisoner, and thus forced him to look at htm. i Look at me, dear Bubelin, I must enjoy the sight. Do you know, dear Schelra, that for the moment could almost love you? You afford me the same enjoyment which you felt when you left my cell lu tha fortress to go to Vladimir's cell to examine him. Ha, hat Thus each one has his turn." Scheim closed his eyes. He was near fainting.

What does that mean I canuot permit that! Tou will have to listen to the end. I'll make you oome around." With these words he passed his sharp dagga across Bchelm's forehead. The sufferer uttered an Indistinct groan. Do you hear me again As am sure yoa -cannot tell out of school In this life I will confess my sins to you. Think of It Miller confessing to Hchelm 1 Would not the Popes laugh If they could hear us Bo you know that I am at the head ot l.OOo armed men aad have a brill.

I hoped I saw every day a lucky turn, a bright change in my fnt It nover came. But to-day every i unforeseen event is a threat to me and I can count upon myself alone.

Scheim, you have made me what I am a spy. a robber and a robot That is what you gave me when I came to you and begged you to help me." A sudden noise Interrupted him. The postlli Ions, with torches iu their hands, were running up and down the banks ot the Angara aud cried out i Where is the traveler wnat can nave be come of him Thev noticed at last the horse with Miner and Be helm lu the middle of the river. i The torches were extinguished ana the ones De came more threatening.

This motion made him again dip a little into the water. lie clung with his fettered hands to the saddle and cried as loud as he could Help I Murder They aro coming to your assistance, dear Scheim. I'll soon let you go.

Unfortunately the people have no boats at hand and the Angara is nearly two versta wide. We are in the middle ot the stream. You may cry, now, to your heart'e content Miller, forgive me Do vou think I am Vladimir Lanln or are' you mad? Why should I possibly forgive you The water reached Schelra's face it took awav his breath and kept him from seeing what was going on. Full of despair he seized the horse's mane and raised bis head a few inches above the water. Miller" be said, ln broken accents, "lam rich.

"Perhaps you can make use of money. I possess nearly a million rubles. I will give it to vou. You can escape to France and live com fortably Uie re. Only set me free; take pity on me The man from Courland beat down close to his face.

Never mind that. 1 cut your fetters, but that doea not keep me from listening to you attentive ly." Miller cut the straps with which Scheim had been bound to the saddle. The rerisor sank halt Into the water, and felt at the same time a terrible pain in his bands, which now alone supported the whole weight of hla body. Help 1 I am drowning I Have pity on me Not yet. What was that you were saying Just now Take the whole of my fortune Perhaps you are deceiving me once moro." I swear it; I do not decei ve you.

There must be an end to alt pleasures on earth The right bank of the Angara became Indistinctly visible ln the nightly gloom. Miller stooped ouce more and cut the last bonds that held Hchelm to the saddle.

The scoundrel sank Into tlte wave. The Csar of the exiles gave the spur to bis horse and It swam on snorting and splashing furiously, Hchelm sank, but In a few seconds be reappeared on the surface; Miller, have pity on me I I repent my sins I take my I em coming to help you." replied Miller, but It la In vain; the current is too Buhelm's hands and feet were tied togetuert he could consequently make no effort to save bis, life by swimming. The people from the post station had In the meantime rowed in a boot up the river, while the left bank was pretty well lighted np with torches. Miller swam swiftly in the opposite dlrectlon.but looked around every moment, because be hoped be might see Hchelm appear onco. And really, as his horse began to feet the sandy bed of the river under bis hoofs, be perceived the pale, terror-stricken face of the drowning man once more.

Hchelm opened his mouth as If to summon help, but the water flowed Into It and he vanished In the dark waters. Till next time. Hcaolm 1 cried Miller. When Hchelms Inexorable enemy bad reached the bank of the river he mounted a fresh horse which Ivan bad prepared for him there, for fortunately be and several other exile had oa the fatal day of thesklrmlah escaped the euemy's balls. Tbey turned round once more to see what was going on at the station.

Everything there seemed lu a state of great excitement. On the river, also, a number of boats were son robing evidently for Scheim, He never reappeared, There Is nothing more to do for us here sold Miller to his companions, and, absorbed profound meditation, he made his way in the direction of the Chinese frontier vnuoavm. Two young men were engiffed In lively conversation In the beautiful gardens of the Conversations Haue at Badsn-Baden. It was ln the year lmki, when the whole elegant world used to meet here, more for the sake of pleasure than to restore ruined health. A fatuous artist had given a grand concert, which was Just now ended amid suthusi-aatlo applause.

The audience scattered slowly in all directions; some went to the rooms whers play waa going ou, others to the terraces. The young men were so deeply interested in their conversation that they did not notice the crowd by which they were surrounded. One of them waa a French officer, the other a Colonel In the Prussian lifeguards. They hnd become acquainted under the walls of HebfsBtopol, and there formed an luti mate friendship. Since thea they had, strangely euoug-o, never met until this very day, aud their tuutual delight waa great.

At the same moment a gontleman pansed thenj accompanied by a lady of aetonteuiiig beauty, A tew steps from the two friends ho suddenly topped. I should like to go for a moment Into the eaal.

The moon Illumined the valley, and the long snauows ox we vreee uuu unea tne public roaa lay snug alongside of the great thoroughfare. A gentle breath of wind whispered myHterlously in the foliage of the birches and lorohee that were here inter mingled. Beetles were bumming drowsily In the rich grass; here and there the phoeiihoreeoent green light of a light-worm shone lu the close turf and vanished again in an inscanfc a mysterious humming noise pervaded the forest, a sign thnt it concealed animal life in abundance, and now and then broke out in louder, but still Indistinct nolsea. Otherwise the night was silent The highroad, which the eye could follow for miles and miles across the vast level plain, was deserted.

At a distance only now and then was beaid the tinkling of a little bell, the forerunner or a ventcte, or yet uomiug eoiua oeseen. The station house near which that bloody con flict had taken place, which hod cost so many and so precious victims, stood, has been mentioned, not far fron the edge of the forest, perhaps some thirty ve -ts from Irkutsk. Nothing was stirring In the little building, but the windows of the ofQcial's room shone brightly, and at a dls- uinos aomeDouy was singing. Aiine aoor a postilion was smoking his short, stumpy pipe, leisurely watching the ringlets of smoke as they grace rully whirled on high. Ue heard just then the tinkling of the bells of the post horses, and entered the house to give warning that travelers were approaching.

At his summons three men or rather three dark shadows appeared ln the dark, silently walked around the house and stationed themselves upon a huge, projecting rock.

The official went out to aive the necessary orders and said to Sehelia i "The travelers' room fa on tho right hand; It has been entirely ruined during the fight between the regulars and the rebels, but I have had It repaired as well as my meuu allowed.

The ex-rerlsor thought It was the man who came to tell him that all was ready and he could continue his Journey.

However, he waa startled at the roan's strange conduct, who came very oloee to him. The moon waa shining Into the room, only the door lay In deep shadow, and Hchelm eould not make out the features of the newcomer. Are the horses ready?" he asked. At the same moment the stranger seized his arm and he saw It waa not the postilion fas had expected, 'Hchelm 1 Do you faneyl have forgiven yon and felt pity for you, as the others seem to have doner Hchelm was dumbfounded i he recognised Miller with terror. He was going to call for help, but he was not given time for it.

Before the door the postilions also were beard laughing, ae they banieesed the horsea. Miller gave a sign and Instantly the bonnd man was lifted up, passed throng a Uie open window, end received on the outside by two other men $11 toned there. Miller, with his two companions, followed hi in in the same way, and quickly all of them hurried down to the bauk of the Angara.

The exiles tied Scheim securely to the saddle, without removing the handkerchief with which they had gnucged him Miller again silently watched tlte proceedings and laughed scornfully. When they were ready he leaped on his horse and said: "Oood-bye(my frlendJl" The exiles spurred their horwee, climbed Uw rocks and were soon cut of sight. Miller alone pushed his horse Into the river. The moon was peacefully slivering the waters of the quiet river; all around sttencn reigned, and only Miller's horse, bravely breasting the waves, snorted and slashed through tha waters In an uncanny, gruesome way.
