It was all over. Iris had sent In her money. She was in asmall lodging found for her bv 1'iirtiiy Mere, who called her cousin. She^tayed-indoors all day long, afraid of stlnring abroad: afraid to read the papers; afraid that her husband was arrested on the charge of conspiracy, and fraud; afraid that some kind of hue aud cry mlaht be out after her. Therefore, w|ien she heard a manly step on the'stair, she started aud turned pale, expecting nothing short of «u armed laua- seuner ot the law. She never was In this daiujur for a single miuuio, but conscience made u coward ot her. .. The step was that of Hugh Mountjoy. "I found you out." he said, "by means of Faui'.y.

He entered the hotel, greeted the landlord cheerfully, saluted the head waiter, ordered his dinner nnd took no' notice of the gntlen. looks with which ho was received or the scowls which followed him about the coffee-room where half a dozen meu were sitting and talking, for the most part in whispers.

After ft decent ittief val, Hugh Mbuntjoy joined her. She was now, a widow. She understood very *rtl what he wished to say, and she anticipated him. She Informed him that nothing «ottld ever Induce her to become the wife of any other man .after her degradation. Hugh received this intimation without a remark, He reitialtted In the neighborhood, how- eter, calling upbii her frequently and offering no word o{ love. But he became necessary to her. The frequent visits became daily; the afternoon visits were paid in the morning! the visitor stayed all day. When thu. time came for Iris to yield, aud he lett the house no more, there seemed to be'nobhabfte. But still they continued their retired lite, and now t do not think they wilt ever change it agalo, Ana then happened the last event which the chronicler has to relate.

"Come in," said the latter "I'm lonely in here, and I want some one to chat with," "All right," said the colonel, entering, "what shall.we chat about?" "Lots of things," replied Ingersoll. "Is there a future life?" looking out of the window dreamly, ns the express sped on, he answered his own query. "I don t know—do you? Is there a God? I don t know —do you? Wns there the son of Qod?

He replied: "Really, Ingersoll, I have never given much thought and study to the questions you propound. I had a Christian training, and I have always. tacitly accepted them." "Indeed!" replied Colonel Ingereoll. Why, man, you surprise me! Theyare vital issues.. I have studied tho subjccl thoroughly, Every man ought to. Now, take my advice and look into-the matter.

"I went away froin this interview both emburassed ana mOrtified," said the General, "that I did not feel competent to discuss so important a matter with so learned a thinker.

So in !• AccoinpllKlicd Criminal* Among tliv Chlimmon of Now York. According to the police the public is just becoming acquainted witli tlie thoroughly wicked and disreputable character of many of the Chinamen in America. Owing to the agitation of the hoodlums and the extravagant character of sand-jot oratory the people long ago made up thoir minds that tlie Chinaman was really very far from what he was represented to bo. From this point they quickly got to a condition where they believed hiu. to bo possessed of nil the cardinal virtues and many accomplishments besides. In point of fact the police, both here and in SpnJFranci°co, have steadily looked upon the Chiiinmnn as criminals of the most dangerous class, because they are linked so closely together in race, religion and custom that they can .con'ceal their crimes with success in almost every instivnce. Some of the tragedies in the Chineoie dons in New York are of too revolting an order for publication. . It is perfectly well known to thp police thnt there are Chinese criminals in Mott street •who could give points in tact, diplomacy and deception. Only once in a while, as in thp case of the poor jjfirl who was sold into worse than physicial slavery, does an exposure occur, which indicates the exact condition of morals in one of the most repulsively infested districts'bf the town.

GRACE'S BE8K. Margaret looked up from her sewing machine for a minute to glance across the room at the quiet little figure sitting* ttt the window—A round, graceful little figure, whose attitude of thoughtful gravity was full of suggestion. And then Margaret, always more or less crusty, but kind hearted, gate an impfc Went sigh and increased the speed of her mnchinft by a savage motion of her slip- pered feet, nhd compressed her lips and puckered her forehead all up in a perfect nest of wrinkles i while Grace', uhconsious of it, sat looking out of the window at the gloomy proRpecl—a half melted, dirty, slushy brown snow that WM rapidly growing elushief and more melted under the drizzling rain .that was fulling; and of course, thinking about Laurie Marcellus. For several months Grarts had not thought Ot much else but him, and yet there had not been iin hour or a moment ot that time that she-had not tried not to think of him and grieve for him. H had been very similar to the same old story. La.urie Marcellus, handsome, elegant, aristocratic, fairly welj-to do in the world's estimation - of richea, had been 1 Grace Wnrrener's most devoted for several months, until by one of those venomous waves of fortune's wnhd, social position and wealth had suddenly vanished, and the Warrener girls found themselves obliged to take in dressmaking,for t Friends who had always been friends, who redeemed the dear name, w'ao knew them for what they were worth, did not desert them j but first and foremjst in the rank of those who so conveniently preferred to dispense with the society of the two dressmakers, who lived in Appledore Row was Mr. Laurie Marcellus. He had dropped out of Grace s life as a brilliant comet disappers from the sky. He had called ono evening, tho same M ever, with the sweet caressing tentlerness in his voice— tho glad, eager Fight in his handsome eyes— that made the gtrl s heart glad within her; and— hhe had never seen him since nor heard from him. That very next day tho crash came, through which the great spice house of Warroncr & Gray suspendedjand a month later Caleb W arrener died with and as soon as decency permitted, tho apoplexy, itted, tho JUS MOTHER JIONORKJ).

I'm ashamed of you—downright ashamed; and he not your betrothed either!" Thnt was true. PO far as formal words wont. Laurie Marcellus had never asked Grace Warrener to be his wife; lie had never in no many words told her that he loved her; but lid had known just as well as he had known that he was* alive, how the L'irl>heurt was all his own—how she loved him dearly and truly, for all her sweet reserve. Graco smiled faintly when Margaret spoke of the "fuss" she made about him, She'now well enough that tlie "fass" was only her grave, snd face, and quiet ways, 'her listlcts manner, that she tried desperately hard to conquer, and all months that had passed had not succeeded and seemed no nearer • succeeding than in the beginning—so nearly hopeless is it for a woman to conquer thoughtsHnd heitrtsticks longing for the man she loves. Pride and Hhumo may do valiant battle for the victory, but pride and shame arc baby foes in comparison with the giant they Apuoso —woman's strong enduring love ftr her beloved. j ' . And so the Dreary time went on for Graco, and by steady, pe'.'rfstent effort she disallowed herself to be dnftter, complaining, or a'kill-joy. She rcBolt'sly defer:., mined tout least bo-cheerful nnd patient outwardly, no matter what was the inward commotion. And" today, this cheerless January day—she had'only given a momentary rein to her thoughts, enough to make her lay down her sewing and lean her head against tho window,' and wish she might nerer have known the sweetness of Laurie Murcellus' love. .Until the usual whirling of the sewing- machine wheel mado her awuro that Margaret had observed her and wasdisploased. So, with ii little desperate effort, she forced her fC f back to the busting'of-the satin fold in her work' "I was thinking about that auction sale at Dompsey's tonight," Margaret said, almost crossly. "Vou want a desk, you said, nnd Muggie Rich says there's- ii very good one to bo-sold there. 1 11 go and bid on it for you, I think, if I ever under the sun get these bands stitched on!

Poor little Grace I White and trembling:, amazed and bewildered she sat there long after. Margaret had gone to her own room, unconscious of the drama enacted near by. He had loved her—he had loved her. after all; and Grace's heart thrilled at that thought slender though the consolation was. But6f whttt avail was it now? Where was he? Whftt might have happened in that long faithful interim? She thought of it all, keeping vigil with her thoughts that night. How the latter had ever come in that desk she had bought at Dempsey'S She dared not imagine, Grace only realized that _some tremendous fate had discovered it to her. She keptjher strange, sweet, pitiful secret in htr own heart for days, wondering with eveiPy hour if she could dare take a step in the matter. And then, one day, the auctioneer who had sold the desk to Margaret Warrener went to her and told her that a gentleman who had just returned from Europe desired to regain possession of the desk sold at Mr. Dempsey s auction, as it had been a gift to Mr. Dempfley ftom himself on the eve of his departure abroad five years before. And Grace listened with dilating eyes and throbbing heart, whose beat almost choked her utterance. "Tell the gentleman to call here and ho may have his properly." And that evening sne went to the door at the sound of the.oel), and opened it with her face slightly paler thnt usual. Ltuiris Marcellus stood there.

" t I do not know that ] should tell you even now," she said bravely, "for 1 do not know whether you are— are the same of not. But," and she looked up in his grand face, "I wont you to know I did love you." He stopped up to her, quietly enough for the minute. "And now?" "lam Grace Warrener still." And thon he snatched her in his arms, held her to his heart, and kissed her sweet, pale face, saying: "I never have once thought of another woman, my darling, When no answer came 1 was crushed to the very earth, nnd got myself away as well as I ^ould.

Like the birds of the'air, there nrs many insects which do more good than harm, and their acquaintance should be cultivated as much as possible. There is constant war going on among the bugs and insects of the Bern and orchards, and this warfnro does more toward keeping down the injurious ones, than nil of the London purple and Paris green that the farmer can spread over the «lirubs anil vines. The white-faced hornet is probably the best friend to have in the orchard after all, although many consider this hot-tempered insect a great nuisance. If the garden is infested with slugs the hornets will soon discover them, and a colony of the latter will soon destroy thousands of the slugs. They will fly about and take the slugs from the leaves and' carry them to their nest. The amount of good that a colony of these hornets will do for a garden can not bo overestimated, and the Tittle trouble that they may do should bo overlooked in view of the great benefit they may confer'upon, the owner of the plants. • The larger kinds of beetles, the lion- beetle especially, ore also very beneficial to the farmer, because their whole tune is employed in destroying parasites, (lies and; grubs. . These beetles are homely-looking thingsj. and nearly every'o'nc feels inclined to step on them and crush them whenever discovered but thoy are the best-friends of the orchardist and gardner. By all means let them live, eyen if their homely figures are unpleasant to look upon. When a garden is infested with cut-worms the lion- beetles ore of great value, for in the night time they hunt the cut-worms untiringly. It is in the nit'ht time that the cut-worm como forth to perform thoir destructive work, and it is also then that the former, como forth but. they do almost as good service for the.farmer. Let a number of these loose near a tree infested with plant lice, and they will soon rid tho leaves ot the pests. They eat an untold nuinboxof aphides, and do practical- work in tlio garden. The tiger-beetles also proy upon other insects, and a few of the species devour the potato-beetle by the wholesale. , The wheel-bug and the soldier-bug are Orchard crass is considered superior to timothy, but it does not yield as much hay. ' About 1 pound of London purple to 200 gallons of water is sufficiently strong solution for'an insecticide. Sheep will need but little feed from the barn now if grass is plentiful, and a, saying of grain may be made in that direction. All fallen fruit whether very younsr or nearly matured, should be destroyed_ in order to prevent the propagation of insects as mucli as possible. During the warm days of summer the manure will "fire-fang" unless plenty of absorbent material be used, or the manure turned over occasionally. • Cows will not refuse stagnant water when thirsty, and ns such water contaminates the milk the matter of a plentiful supply of fresh water is a very important one. The hoe will compensate for lack of manure in the garden sometimes.. Nothing improves vegetables like a good hoeing of the noil and cutting out the weeds. Peas may still be planted for a later supply. Use the dwarf kinds and keep them well cultivated, as the grass will easily crowd thgni out during the warm weather. Trim back the raspberries and blackberries if it has not been done, in order to induce growth though the matter should have been attended to earlier. Sow grass seed on all the bare places on the lawn. A mixture of blue grass and white clover will make an excellent lawn. All hlwn plots should be seeded as early us possible. Should fowls that have been afflicted with roup show the effects; of the disease during-the sunimer;'the difficulty of effecting a cure is too great, and the flock should be destroyed. Stock need salt when green food is plentiful more.than at any other time. The lack of salt sometimes causes'injurious effects from green food that might be avoided by its use for stock. If it pays some farmers to raise .the dairy cows that are purchase! by dairymen, who sell their calves, it should pay the dairyman to raise his own cows, especially if he does so with the aim of improving his herd. On all fields where the mowers are to be used the advantage of the land having been previously rolled can be mowed easier, and the work done more completely than where the land is rough. Gilt-edge butter depends for its quality not only upon the breed and feed to a certain' extent, but more so on the skill of t he dairyman. The first requisite is cleanliness, which begins at the stable and ends with the packing of the butter for market. Gniin may be fed liberally to cows when they arc in full flow of milk, but if the cows are drying off previous to calving it it is better to withhold all grain if the animals are .in good- condition, in order to avoid milk fever at calfing time. Plenty of j-rnss is sufficient for dry cows, grain b'eing unnecessary. the best cough tneafcine Is PUo's Cure for Comnftiption. Sold everywhere. 35c.

So that was how Miss Warroner.cnmo to bo at tho auction sale of tho bit? house on the hill that evening—Dompsoy H grand mansion, whose owner had taken a whim toHoll out and spend a few years abroad. Tho next day the desk was delivered at the cottage in Appledore Eow. and Grace put it in her room—-a small beautiful article, standing nicely in .a.cozy corner, and just tlie'very thing, for Grace's fovy books and stationery. • . It was very handsome. Grace cried a little over it, because it brought back so many thoughts,of the dear old.duys when she W'IVB surrounded by just such elegancies of furniture, and when—everything scorned, soijio how, to lead to: that .one pivotal thought—when LauriQ.Marcpllus had boon ' So the months, went on,' •and tlio two sisters led their busy life, and tiraco was trrowini,' sweeto.and palor," and more patiently thoughtful,. with-every day that widened tho distance between her and her 1 memories. • • Now friends gathered around thorn— true friends—and • there was more than one opportunity fflr Grace to have accepted a lover, only she .had no love to.givu, up heart to win.

It must follow and not lead. Jt must overtake you, and not you overtake it;" "A contented mind is the lirsb condition of happiness, but what is tho h'rst'co'ndition of a contented mind t You will be disappointed whun I tell you what this all important thing is, it is so common, so nepr at hand, and so many people have so much of it and yet tiro not happy. Thoy have too much of it, or clsu the kind that is not best suited to them. Wlmt'is the bust thing for a stream? It is to keen it moving. If it stops it stagnates So tho best thing for a man is that which keeps the currents going, thu physical moral and'iritoll'octual currents. Hence tho secret of happiness is—something to do' some congenial work. Take away the occupation of all men and what a wristch- o'd 'world it would bo. Halt of it would commit suicide in leaa than ten dtiyn. ON15 JIUNiTiTniJ TIIUUsANU IC()U TWENTY. A. A. Mlll-.mH, II JowUli IClilllll.

Among the things which are found convenient in every farmer's workshop is a 10-foot polo, mado time: A piece of wood, 1% inches square and ton feet long, is nicely smoothed with a plane and then marked sis follows: One side has a mark every throe feet, to indicate yards; another side is marked every two feet; the third side is nmrSed every foot; while tho fourth side has feet, inches and half-inches, the pocket-rule furnishing the sub-divisions.pt nn inch. This measure will be found useful in many places. For instance, yhen a small building is being started, stakes are set in the ground at each corner. Ihe proper angle of the sills may be found by measuring eight feet on ono and six feet on the otlier. Bring them together until the ten-foot pole just reaches both marks, and a right angle is the result. Ae:iin, tho proper length for a post, to support a low roof, is quickly measured with such a polo. If a corn-crib is being built, six feet wide at the bottom, seven at tho top and nine feet hiph, the proper length of tho various scantling is readily measured off. Many other uses will be suggested when this simple implement is at hand. Wlmt to 1'roiluce fur Profit. DBS JlolnoH Kuglste'r'. The lalo advance in grains will do the farmer little good, because the product has wasted into the hands of speculators f 3r the most part. Projects to avoid this are numerous. Great elevators for grain ore suggested, and Gnvoriiment loans ore proposed. Wo suggest the feeding of grain at homo, and the arrangement-of private affairs so the farmers will not be compelled to sell as soon as harvest is over. Our Government has no way of getting money to loan but from tho people. Tbe aurplus can nil bo paid out on the national debt very'soon. As regards big elevators lor storing, controlled by farmers.on borrowed money, we do not like the looks ot it. Store up in your own grainary, and sc when you got decent pay for your labor. All farm products sell for what it is worth to raise them some time sooner or latter. Lean away from what is being overproduced by farmers who can do nothing else. Incline to what others avoid that requires skill. Iowa people pay too much.for good cheese at present. Study how to make honest cheese. Putall the cream in and stick to that and you will make money. We rarely get a bite of honest cheese. Tho taste of our people is not being educated to oat cheese, because they rarely get tlie genuine article. Iowa needs family cheeses with all tho cream in, and the world wants such cheese, and .will always pay for it. But first determine whether you lire honest enough to put in the cream. Very few are. Look about and BOO what tho world is doing and keep out of crowds uoiiig to market. Produce whati is- avoided; produce what- sells well. While .so much laud in being robbed for grain, avoid selling. The best horses pay'ivou will pay. The best beef puys and w^ll pay. The best mutton pays and will.continue to pay. So will econouiicaly produced hoga SjfiST SSXlS&iSXS ?o ."Mob •m.Wnd SrfeS|lP=S|SS * CO.; TBOI. M.
