Chicago, was shot down in Cold blodd by a crank at his residence on South Ashland bodicvard, at 8 o'clock on the 1 evening 1 ' of the 28th, by a newspaper came* employed by the Daily Times, the mayors paper. Tlie name of the assassin is Patrick Eugene Frendergast, aged 25. He called at the Harrison home and asked i'f Mi\ Harrison was at hotrie.; The se,rvau.t said he was arid j, he passed into the hall. The mayor, who was in the dining room at the end of the hall, stepped out to meet the caller. As he did so Pfe'hdergast drew a revolver and commenced firing. He fired three shots, each of which took effect. One bullet shattered Harrison's left hand, another passed into the lower part of the abdomen, making a wound Which woul-.i have proved fatal in a few hours, and the third entered the chest just below the heart.

Isolation ot Consumptives. WASHINGTON, Oct. 30.—United States Consul Courtney llixson, at Foochow, China, observing the decrease in consumption through the Amide treatment, is supplying the American Colony as well as the Chinese with the free medicines obtained from the generous Cincinnati discoverer. No gov- rnineutal action will be taken towards isolating consumptives until the regular session. CHICAGO, Oct. 30.—Tlu sanitary authorities, aroused by recent editorials on the Amick cure and the infeelious- ness of the disease, are debating how best to isolate consumptives. The Post says: "Consumption is placed by Michigan in the same category as small-pox and it will be snoilarly quarantined. Let Illinois fall in line at once." DENVEII, Oct. 30.—The proposed state legislation isolating both resident consumptives and those coming here ;ias led to the corporation of institu- 10ns for their care. The Denver Sanitarium Co. opened theirs last week to Lhe patients of all physicians and combines isolation with the Amick treatment which each consumptive is given opportunity of testing with medicines furnished these physicians by the Cincinnati doctor without cost.

One of the neatest and most entertaining little books to come to our table is "The Translation of a Savage" by Gilbert Parker, author of "Pierre and His People," "The Chief Factor," "Mrs. Falchion," etc. The author's! well-known style is fully up to its average excellence, and the work merits a good sale. Redhead, Norton, Lathrop & Co., Des Moines. A famous man is always interesting when he tells how he did the thing which brought him his reputation, and there is a particular charm about Frank R. Stockton's narrati'e, which opens the November Ladies' Home Journal, of how he conceived and wrote his famous story, "The Lady or the Tiger?" what came of us writing, and the condition of his own mind at the present time of the correct solution of the story. Late numbers of Appleton's Town and Country Library contain, as every one who is acquainted with that ever popular series will readily believe, some very interesting novels.

Lew Wallace is best known as .he author of "Ben Ilur." Thatsplen- .lid story of the Bible and of Jesus ;vas written and placed before the public years before it was appreciated ;>y the rending world. But when appreciated at lasb came edition after edition was published in answer to the public demand, which it seemed would never be satisfied. Another work of the very entertaining author, "Tne Fair God," had been read by thousands upon thousands and numerous editions lave been issued. When President Harrison sentGen. Wallace to Turkey as the representative of the United States government, it was prophesied that something of splendid literary worth would result from that mission. And now tho result is before us. It is the ge.ic.ral's latest and work—"The of India, or Why Constantinople fell." It came in two neat volumns and is published by Harper & Bros., York.

"Two Bites at a Cherry," with other tales, by Thomas Bailey Aldrich, 10mo, §1.25, One of tho most popular us well as tho most delightful books of short stories published in recent years is that in which "Marjorie Daw" rightly holds the place of lionor.

It was May "12 that very day. Yes, twelve months' 16" day, almost to an hour; and now this accursed thing had^ come to remind him of his humiliation, li'i's' degradation, and of tho ruffianly outrage of which he had been the victim! Grief, shame, rage, despair, fillet! his heart and fired his bruin, -and with a wild cry the unfortunate man fell..SRpse- less to the ground. At that moment tho m'anager, who had come around to-congratulato him, entered his dressing-room. ''Mr. C • to"k stock of the situation at onc6 'v^uick! , to my room; bring a brittle of whit-key-—sharpls tho word!" said he to the dresser. • Sharp was tho word, and in a minute tho dreader was buck witli th'o whiskey. The manager in the interim had unloosed Curly's cravat 'and bathed his forehead with euu do cologne. Then he administered a ghiSH or two of neat whiskey; the effect was us instantaneous us remarkable. Curly pulled himself''together, said something about being overcome with boat and ovcitnmcnt, picked up the letter, put it into his pocket, accepted tho manager's congratulations, arranged a boutonniprq from the flowers for his lust scene, slipped on his dressing-gown, thought he would have another glass of whiskey,, und rushed on tho stage. It will be remembered that this is tho situation in which Doricourl, pro- tends to fro mild.- By this timo Curly had got tho audience in the ball of his hand, and could do just what ho liked with them. Hound followed round of applause, roar followed roar of laughter, und Curly laughed, too —indeed, ho laughed Ioude 1 !- t 'thaii any one. Evidently he was enjoying tho performance quite as much us t:.o spectators. When tho scene was over he returned to hid dressing-room, slipped on his coat, "slipped into" tho whiskey, and finished tho bottle! Decidedly he was enjoying himself. Yes! ho was having a high, fine old timo of it! *£,' Buck ho wont to the prompt entrance—ho had tied a Imnderchief grotesquely over his head—and on he came for his last mad scene. Ho laughed louder than over—tho au- diencu laughed, tho actors laughed— never had u mad scene been acted so naturally before. The houso was in' convulsions—so was Curly. He had just announced his intention of "lunching ou a stcnk of broiled hippopotamus before he went on a voyage of discovery to the moon," when all at ouce he. appeared to change his mind on tho subject Standing quito still, he glared into tho stage-box to his right. It was empty—quite empty. There was no mistake about that. Bui; Doricourt seemed to bo under tho impression that somo one was thero, for ho began to apostrophize tin imaginary ob cot. ••It wasn't my fault, darling, " ho exclaimed. "You know I would have died for your sake; but I had no weapon. If I hud! If I hud! Don't look at me like that dear! See. see! tho coach is at tho door; thoy are coming to tako you away, but they shan't. Take your hands from her, curse you!—tako your hands from hor! Nuy, then •" And with a wild piercing scream that rang through every corridor und every avenue in the building, the poor wretch leaped into the empty box, a raving mad man. r What signilios tho play or the audience now? When Tragedy casts her sad and solemn shadow over tho scene—when tho poisoned bowl overflows and tho keen dajrgor is uplifted to strike tho fatal blow—Tomfool lays aside his cup and bells, and the graceless hussies, Farce und Comedy, retire, und hido their diminished heads. So drop the curluin, Mr. Stage Manager, put out the lights, and send for the doctor! CHAPTICK XII. Oil' the Scent. It so happened on the night of Curly's debut that thero was produced at Covent (Jut-den theater a new sensational drama, with u real waterfall, i-pul flephunts and reul horses. At tho IJuymai'tcot there was a new comedy, und us at that time critics wore scarce und penny papers were not in being, tho mero debut of u provi'.neUil comedian in an old comedy escuped notice, und therefore thoro was no public mention of tho scone recorded in the lust chapter. It remains to bo explained why Flora sent the paper which had such disastrous results. Poor girl! She had meant it for a peuce-ollering. believing in her inmost heart that Curly would accept it us a release from u promise which sho felt convinced hud been as infamously extorted as it hud 1/een unwillingly given. She timed the arrival of the parcel to take place ou tho occasion of his opening in town, hoping, in tho innocence of her hearu to lend additional signili- cunce to this token of her forgiveness. She ordered all tho London papers, expecting to see some notice of her lover's iirst appearance. There was not u line. She showed tha papers to Jamieson. He was us disappointed as herself. Disappointment guvo way to us.lo.n- ii-hmont when they found Curly's numc withdrawn altogether from the udverlheiaeuu. At this time ttia elwtrUf wire wa» not in existence. gttCceuded day. yet thero was no H6 latter for Willie! Weelts—months -Ji-pa$(e*d. He wrote again, ancl y«t again, in vain. His letters catno buck from the dead letter office. His own troubles Were a? nothing- now Compared to his nnxiety for Curly and 'Flora. He cduld not bear to contemplate her sufferings^ To-day she waq in a fever, to-morrow in au ague; one moment chafing with impatience, tho nest free/ing with the apathy of despair. All at once it occurred to him to write direct to the manager of Drury Lane. The post in those days took a long timo 'twixt London and Edinburgh, and a fortnight or more elapsed bel'oro he received a reply. It was sympathetic but brief, and related in us few words as possible the tragic story told in the last chapter. It appears that there were two or three eminent medical men in tho theater, who cumo behind tho scones, and held a hurried consultation- There was no doubt us to Curly's condition. It was dangerous to himself and others for him to remain at largo. A certificate to this effect was then and thoro prepared, and duly attested. Three or four men were detailed to mount guard : over him in his dressing- room until ,the morrow. Early in the day the manager, with the accustomed 'generosity of his class arranged With tiho proprietor of a famous private lunatic asylum at Kcw to iake cbanje of tho poor creature for ihree months, paying tho sum stipulated in ndvance. At night-full the keepers came to iiko him away. When they arrived us Kow the doctor diagnosed tho case, ind hud his wrotehod patient removed tho dangerous ward, where after a time the ravings of despair gave place to blank oblivion. Jamieson's difficulty was to break tho matter to Flora, but thero was no help for it. She bore the intelligence better than ho expected—anything was better than silence and uncertainty. She even found somo shadow of consolation in the news. Sho knew, at any rate, that the silenco of her lover was not occasioned by perfidy or neglect. When Willie had finished reading- the manager's letter sho said abruptly ••I urn going to London to-morrow." "Alone," he inquired. "No; Jeunnie will accompany me." "If you could only wait a few days I might get leave of absence 'o go with you," ho said. "You are very good," sho replied; "but my place is by his side. I can not wait a day—an hour. My God! my God!" sho cried, "why can't I fly straight to him at on'co. There! there! 1 know I am only mad!" On the morrow Jamieson was at tho coach office to seo her of)'. She looktd more hopeful than she had done for many u day, and as the couch was about to start sho even smiled, and said: ••Don't look so sud. bo suro I shall bring him back with me." "Heaven grant you may," he ro- pliod. and so thoy parted. Upon her arrival in town sho took up quarters at tho Bedford hotel. An hour afterward, accompanied by her faithful Jeannio. she was on her way to tho asylum at Kcw. Upon explaining her business the doctor was most alTuble, but regretted ho could bo of no service, hor friend having loft his char-go a week an-o. Tho news stunned her, sho slag- gored, und must have fallen had not Jcunnio caught hor in her arms. Gradually sho began to recover, then she overwhelmed him with questions. Sho could only, however, elicit that his patient hud ceased to bo violent, and that there was no occasion for further restraint, that he was merely melancholy and moping, and that his health and appetite hud returned. Then, referring to his note-book, he said: "Yes, my contract was only for three months, and that expired a fortnight ago. I guvo a week's grace, expecting to hear further from Mr. C. (tho manager), and then, of courtie, I hud done with tho matter. Lot mo seo, tho patient loft this establishment at nine o'clock in tho morning, exactly eight clays ago. Do I know where ho went!' Cerluinly not he did not tako mo into his confidence. So sorry—will you excuse mo? Good mo;.'ning." Hopeless and despairing. Flora returned to town. Next day sho culled at Drury Lane und endeavored to seo Mr. C. Alas! ho had left town, was in Paris, und would not bo buck until the winter. She hud never been in London before, und oh. what a wilderness it is to be alone in! Fortunately sho had Jounnio with her. whoso attachment was more devoted und profound than ever. Besides, she had money, and with money ono can do much. Sho called tho manageress of the hotel to her assis- tunce. The old ludy was very sympathetic, and suggested the employment of u detective. Flora assented, arid in half an hour's timo a bright, intelligent man, who looked rnoro liko a gentlomuu farmo r than a policeman in plain clothes, presented himself. Upon explaining her business the detective looli a hopeful view of the subj'eett especially when curio bluneho was allowed him as to expenses. Ho commenced operations by going to Kew, where ho hud u lontr interview with the doctor, from whom, ho could gain no information beyond what Flora hud already obtained. He, however, took notes of everything, and obtained u fairly accurate description of Curly's personal appearance, the clothes ho wore, e(c., before he returned to town. All this he duly reported at the Bedford. Day ai'tor day. wus barren of ro- snlU. As for flora, she sut daily for hours and houi-d and wutchod und waited; then sho could endure inactivity no longer. Lp sho would start, and cull out: "L'omo, Jeannio. lass, let's be moving, or I 5>hall go mudl'' and tixo two WQtua^ would trump c'o,. T n inu ChjBQj^idj?, wd kO ftij vo the MaHsion House.

Garden'— the sweet fresh flowers which seemed to breathe something- • of the odors of the far North, where she hrld first met him! Aaffo'f. food, she scarce looked ut it. To- be just to Jeannie, however, she conscientiously endeavored to make amends for the shortcomings of hoi'.mistress, At night to bed. but not to rest, nor- to sleep—her heart was far 1 away, out. in the cold with the poor outcast. Thus passed away a fortnight, and' another, and yet another—still no- sign., Then the detective thought of' what he should have thought of before, and, indeed, it was strange the idea had not occurred either to her- or to Willie, although she, was in constant communication with'him. Better late than ever, so advertisements- appeared daily in all tho London, newspaper.-;. In vain, in vain! It was too late!' Jeahnie's heart sank within her as- sho saw tho awful change which was- taking place''daily, and 'hourly before, her very eyes. ,Onco or twice she ventured to hint tho propriety of returning homo, bur; was met with a> curt and stern rebuff. At lust it occurred to her that Jamieson had considerable influence with .her mistress, so she wrote him, in her homely fashion, acquainting him with the state of affairs; and, to Flora's astonishment, one morning, ho • walked into her room at tho hotel. "Good heavens!" sho exclaimed. "Mr. Jamieson! What has brought you here?" . The change in her was so great that for a moment tho young man was dazed. He recovered himself, however, rapidly, and replied, "I've coma to take you homo." His stronger nature asserted itself find would not be denied. so, after interviewing tho detective, and arranging with him to communicate with them in tho event of his obtaining any information, they decided to leavo London on tho morrow. Perhaps sho wus glad to have Some erne to lean upon, to be near somo ono who knew and loved the man sho loved. Perhaps, too. she felt tho shadow darkening—perhaps; who knows? ^ [TO BE CONTINUED.] "j THE ACTION OF DUST. How It Is Forced Into Houses When the Wcatlictr Inilicntor iiises. When the air around us becomes condensed—shrinks into a smaller volume—it becomes heavier, puts greater pressure on tho surface of the mercury and makes it ascend in tho tube; then the mercury is said to rise. When tho air expands—swells into a larger volume—it becomes lighter, the pressure on tho mercury sinks in the tube and tho barometer is said to fall. Thcroforo, every change ol height of tho quicksilver wnich we observe is a sign and measure of a change in the volume of air around us. Further, adds tho Popular Science Monthly, this change in volume tells no less upon the air insido our cases and cupboards. When tho barometer fulls the air around it expands into a larger volume, and tho air inside the cupboard also expands and forces itself out at every minute crevice. When tho baromolor rises again the air insido tho cupboard, as well ua outside, condenses and shrinks, and air is forced back inio tho cupboard to oqiiali/o tho pressure, and along with the air in goes tho dust. The smaller tho crevice tho stronger the jet of air, tho farther" goes the dirt. Witness the dirt tracks so ofton seen in imperfectly framed engravings and photographs. Kornembor, ladies and gentlemen, whenever you seo tho barometer rising, that an additional charge of dust is entering your cupboards and drawers. A Japanese wedding must be a very melancholy affair, In Japan it is not good form for tho bride to admit that oho enjoys the prospect of getting married, and, therefore, when sho is told about it three or four days before tho event, she is expected to set up u loud bellowing and keep it up day and night until tho ceremony comes on. After she has boon richly dressed for the occasion, sho is expected to hang back and shriek, and make a show of resisting her atteu-j dunt's efforts to load her to the bridegroom. This hollow farce is kept up by one of the bridesmaids finally throwing a veil over the bride's face, while an old hag lakes her on her buck and carries her to a sedan chair waiting at tho door to take her to tho bridegroom's mansion. When she arrives there sho is a wife, tho simple ride in a (lovvory chair having the mystic power of transforming hor into u married woman. From that time sho begins to brighten up. i» a Bank. The Bank of England's doors are now so firmly balanced that the clerk, by pressing a knob under his desk, can closo the outer doors instantly, und they cannot be opened again except by special process. This is done to prevent the daring and ingenious unemployed of tho grout metropolis from robbing tho famous institution.
