traffic of Paris The omnibus tramway underground and cab companies last week elected to head their respective boards men representing American capital and connected with the French branch of the Thompson-Houston Electric company who will now control This preponderance was affected of every share ol stock offered at the exchange until the Thompson-Houston people had a majority everywhere Already competition has been lessened by suppressing lines It is thought however that the socialists are too numerous in the city council to permit the intended monopoly to be established Although the Thompson-Houston French branch has many French names it Is well known that it represents American capital almost exclusively 800LB WILL REACH THE SEABOARD Wabash in concerned Mr Gould will not disturb the present conditions as he merely aims to get the most favorable trade conditions He intends however to build into Pittsburg A strong reason why Mr Gould wants this road Is that he has a oontract for 25 per cent of the tonnage of the Carnegie company which will reduce the freight which the Pennsylvania and the Baltimore & Ohio get The latter desire to prevent the construction of the new road and have offered inducements to Mr Gould not to build A story was current last week that the controversy might result in Mir Gould’s securing satisfactory traffic connections with either the

himself through the heart because of the repeated failures of the “perpetual motion” machine he contrived The landlady at the house where he lived says he constructed many strange machines and then tore them to pieces again somttlmes in anger He destroyed one last Friday and soon afterward a pistol shot was beard When his room was entered he was found dead — ' Sir Alfred Milner governor of the Orange River colony and the Transvaal arived in Southampton Friday last A large crowd greeted him The papers of Madrid have begun a campaign against tbe Pan-American exposition at Buffalo They say It la designed to undermine Spanish influence in South America and to prepare the way for “yankeelsing” the entlrs continent his vow follows Greeba during Michael's absence has Jason sent as a convict to the sulphur mines for having threatened Michael’s Ufa Michael having beard of Greeba's engagement to Jason End her seeming unfaithfulness to him wears to kill Jason on sight The republic Is overthrown by the Danish government and Jorgen Jorgensen returning sends Michael to the sulphur mines There jasoh and Michael not knowing each whom the other la become friends and for an Infraction ot--the rules are bound together That night when thfey Ipdt returned- to the hut wherein they slept o t tried to sleep they found that some well-meaning stranger had been there in ther absence and nailed up on the grimy walls above their beds a card) bearing tbs text "Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest” And so ghastly seemed the Irony of those words in that place that Jason muttered an oath between his teeth as he read them and Sunlocks t&rew himself down being unbound for the night with a peal of noisy laughter and a soul full of strange bitterness The next day after that the sixth of their life together rose darker than any day that had gone before It for the wounded hand of Michael Sunlocks was then purple and black and swollen to the size of two handz and his bodily strength was so low that try as brave ly as he might to stand erect whenever he struggled to his feet he fell to the ground again Thinking nothing of this the warders were for strapping him to Jason as before but while they were In the act of doing so he fainted in their hands Then Jason swept them from him and vowed that the first man that touched Sunlocks again should lie dead at his feet " “Send for the captain” he cried “and if the man has any bowels of compassion let him come and see what you have done” The warders took Jason at his word and sent a message to the office saying that one of their prisoners was mutinous and the other pretending to be ill After a time the captain dspatched two other warders to the help of the first two and these words along wth them for his answer: “If one rebels punish both” Nothing loth for such exercise the four warders set themselves to decide what the punishment should be and while they laid their heads together Jason was bending over Sunlocks who was now recovered to consciousness asking his pardon In advance for the cruel penalty that his rcph act Was to bring to them both "Forgive me” he said “I couldn’t help It I didn’t know what I was do-ing” 1 1 ' "There Is nothing to forgive brother” whispered Michael Sunlocks And thus with stammering tongues they comforted one another and iwlih hands clasped together they waited for tbs punishment that had to borne At length the warders concluded that for refusing to work for obstinate disobedience and for threatening nothing would serve but that their prisoners should straightway do the most perilous work to he found that day at the sulphur mines Now this was the beginning of the end for Red Jason and Michael Sun-leoks and If the evil chance had not be-ballen them God alone can say how long they might have lived together at Krisuvik or how soon or how late they would have become known to one on-other by their true names and characters But heaven itself had Its purposes even in the barbarity of base-hearted men as a means towards the great end that was near at hand And this was the way of its coming A strange change that no one could understand had lately come upon the natural oonejition of the sulphur mines The steam that rose from the solfatar-as had grown less and less week by week and day by day until In some places It had altogether subsided This was a grave sign for In the steam lay the easence of the sulphur and If it oeased to rise from the pits the sulphur would cease to grow Other changes came with this such as that deep subterranean noises arose from parts of the plain where no fissures had yet been seen and that footsteps on the earth aroung these places produced a hollow sound From these signs taken together the captain bad concluded that the life of the mtoejhe great infetnal fire that raged beneath the surface was changing ground leaving tbe valley where It had lived for ages for the mountain heights where the low grumblings were now heard to come from beneath the earth’s crust of lava and basaltic rock So taking counsel of bis people he decided to bore the ground In these new places In the hope of lighting on living solfait&ras that would stand to him against the loss of the dead ones And It chanced that he was in the midst of many busy preparations for this work FASHION NOTES Silk-embroidered eollennes

OOF ALL MEN It was still early morning a soft gray mist lay over the moorlands but the sun that had never set to that northern land was rising through clouds of pink and white over the bald crown of a mountain on the northeast And towards the rising sun Jason made bis way striding on with the red glow on Ms own tanned and blackened face and Its ghastly mockery of the hues of life on the -pallid cheeks and whitened Ups M Sunfficks From hls right ankls and right wrist hung the ringB of his broken fetters and from the left ankle and lefst wrist of Sunlocks trained the ropes that had bound them both Never a moment did he pause to breathe or think or question himself On and on he went over lava blocks and lava dust basaltic rock and heavy clay and hot blue earth and scorched and withered moss And still Sunlocks lay over his right side and shoulder motionless and unconscious hardly breatblngbut alive of turf So iat this eight his heart was lifted up and bounding down the hilside ove tbe lava blocks as fast as he could go for hie burden he began to sign from his cracked throat in his hoarse and quavery voice But when he reached the valley his song stopped and W heart sank afresh for it was not grass but moss that grew there and It lay only on big blocks of lava with never a drop of moiature or a handful of earth between them (To be continued) U General President George W Perkins of the Cigarmakers’ International union reports: “For the first time In tbe history of our union the annual money transactions have amounted to over 81-000800 and while this enormous amount passed through the hands of amultltude of local officers it Is a matter of prid and satisfaction to be able to say that not over 8200 was lost through the shortcomings of the financial officers The total amount paid for benefits ol all kinds was 841070620 for the yeat 1800 and the grand total since the com mencebent— 1878 — of the recorded payments of benefits Is 8478766068 nearly five million dollars” The OOke oven Industry unknown in 18W turned out a product In the United States last year valued at 84633418 an Increase since 1888 of 110 per cent The by-products added nearly 8L000004 more f
