From the Baltimore Sun: It seems the Germans have a story to -match the charge of the light brigade at Balaklava, equally magnificent, and a good deal more like war than that blundering expedition, of course. George Bunsen, a son of the famous German savant, tells the story on the authority of the Prussian officer who carried the order to Auerswald, at the fight of Mars-la-Tour. It became necessary to save the army at any sacrifice by gaining time for more troops to come up. The general in command sent orders to two cavalry regiments to advance; they were the crack regiments of the Prussian service. The staff officer rode up to Auerswald, the senior of the two commanders, and told him to advance against the French. "You are not serious," was the reply. "You do not mean me to attack the whole French army?" "I am serious; I bring you positive orders to do BO." Auerswald bowed, and, sending for the young prince of Hohenzollern, ordered him immediately to ride off the field. The young .man said: "I have done nothing to deserve this," and burst into tears. Auerswald replied: "Your family has suffered quite enough. I order you as a soldier to do your duty and obey your commanding officer." He then directed his men to advance, first at a foot's pace, then a trot, then a gallop. They did so and were almost all destroyed. When the survivors had broken through the French Auerswald ordered the bugles to sound the assembly; slowly some sixty-seven were mustered. Auerswald said: "Soldiers, I thank you; you have done your duty. Long live the king!" and fell from his horse, mortally wounded. He recovered consciousness, but died the next day. About 300 only of the two regiments remained alive, but the army was saved." ; UmxpprecinUve Women.

"You frighten me," she cried, trembling still. "And I am so alone now. I used to have Auntie. I could have borne anything then, but now I feel like a poor little rudderless boat going out to ah unknown sea." . "Not rudderless while I live," he replied tenderly. "Well, Dorothy, my darling, I may as well make a clean breast of the worst at once and get it over. Don't be frightened, dear, but my name is not Harris at all." "Dick!" she cried, then sat staring at him as if she could not believe her own ears. "Dick!" i "Yes, I know. But wait till you hear all, dear, and then you will see that it was not my fault, to begin with, and that I never meant really to deceive either of you." •And then he told her everything— how Lady Jane must have mistaken him for his friend Hatnes; how unconscious he had been that the mistake' had been made until she—Dorothy, that is—had called him Mr. Harris; how that fellow Stevenson had passed just as she spoke, and he had forgotten until he got back to Lady Jane's, nearly, that he had parted from her leaving her under a wrong impression about him; how, oddly enough, almost the same thing had happened at Lady Jane's. Then he told her all about his uncle's letter—gave it to her to read, in fact—and told her how he had come to call on Miss Dimsdale, and had been prevented from giving his real name to Barbara by Dorothy's coming to meet him and introducing him to her aunt as "Mr. Harris," and, finally, how he let the mistake pass, feeling that the whole situation was a very awkward one for him, but having always the full intention of making a clean breast of it to Miss Dimsdale sooner or later. "And the fact was," he ended, half apologetically, "I thought if you both got to like mo you wouldn't care whether my name was Tom, Dick or Harry." "But it is Dick?" she cried quite piteously. "It is Dick—Dick Aylmer, at my darling's service," he answered, "and, after all, Aylmer is a better name than Harris any day." "And you will be Lord Aylmer one day!" she said, her soft eyes filled with wonder to think of it. "Yes, always supposing the old sav- ave does not contrive to carry his "DICK," SHE CRIED, threat about an heir of his own into actual fact," Dick replied. "But then you won't like me any the less for that, I hope." "Oh, no, I was not thinking of that," she said. "I was only thinking how wonderful it was that you should want to marry me. But, Dick, what will your uncle say when he finds out about it?" "He will cut off my allowance promptly," Dick answered. "Oh, Dick!" she said. "Well, now, my darling, that is what I want to talk to you about. You see, nobody about here, not even Lady Jane, knows me except as Harris, regiment vague. And if the old savage finds out that I am married he will make it a necessity for me to go to India, which I don't want to do if I can help it. But if you would consent to marry me privately under the name of Richard Harris, we should be perfectly safe, so long as you were not known by any of the people in the regiment—that is, if you lived a mile or two away, or in the next town." "It would be quite legal?" said Dorothy, in a trembling voice. "It would be perfectly legal," he answered. "Oh, my clear!" he burst out, "do you think I would be such a villain as to make a suggestion which would not be legal, while your aunt, who took care of you all her life, and who left you in my charge, lay dead In the house? Listen—I have thought It all out. We shall be married, if you consent, as soon as we possibly can be. Barbara will witness the marriage, but will not know my real name. I will at once make a deed declaring that I was married on such a day, under the name of Harris, and leave it sealed In some place of safety, so that there can never he any trouble about the Identification of the Richard Harris who was married to Dorothy Strode. We will tell Barbara that it Is necessary the marriage should be kept secret for a time, and she will Uve with. you and take care of you when I am absent. There, that is my idea. I know that it is a great sacrifice to ask of you, and I hardly like to ask it, but you see I am In this old savage's hands, so to speak. Then, on the other hand, If you don't feel that you ought to do this, or that your aunt would •have objected very strongly to it, I will write at once and tell Lord Aylmer what I have done, and he must make himself as disagreeable as he pleases. Only, my dearest, that will mean India." "Dick, dear." said Dorothy, slipping her hand within his, " we will be married privately. I don't think Auntie would have minded a bit. If she knew a thing was right, she never cared what the world had to say about it." CHAPTER X. ND so it was settled. When Dick had gone again, Dorothy rang the bell for Barbara. "Come in here Barbara," she said, "I have something to tell you. Listen— sit down, Barbara, and promise me that what I tell you shall be a dead secret for over until I release you from your promise." "Miss Dorothy," said Barbara, sniffing, "I promise, but surely you know it isn't necessary." "No, Barbara, no," soothingly, "but it is best to say all first, isn't it? First, do you know that this house all belongs to Mr. David Stevenson?" "To David Stevenson!" burst out Barbara, indignantly (she had known David from a liittle boy and detested him always). "But, Miss Dorothy, surely tho dear mistress never let him get round her to that extent?" "No, no," cried Dorothy, "hut Auntie had to sell the Hall to somebody, and she sold it to David, and I never knew it till he told me yesterday." "Then I think, Miss Dorothy," cried Barbara, in dignified disgust, "that he might have had the decency to wait a day or two before he told you." "No, Barbara, you are too hard on David. He has been very kind and considerate to me—most kind and considerate, indeed. But he just had to tell me, he couldn't very well help himself. Of course, he does not want to turn' us out—he—he wouldn't mind if we stopped here for years; but then, you see, Barbara, I am engaged to Mr. Harris, and—and this no place for me." "Does Mr. David know?" Barbara inquired. "Not yet; and that is what I wanted to tell you. You see, Barbara, Mr. Harris is very awkwardly placed. He has a relation who insists that he does not get married because he would not marry some rich girl or other that they wanted him to marry. And, of course, he wants to marry me, and he means to." "Yes?" said Barbara, intensely interested in this very romantic situation. "Yes, Miss Dorothy; well?" "Well, Barbara dear, we are going to be married quietly," said Dorothy, edging her chair a trifle nearer to the elderly woman's chair, "without letting anybody know, do yoxi see?" "Without any of the folk round about knowing?" Barbara asked. "Just so. It won't, be for always, you know, Barbara—only until Dick conies into his property; and he hasn't asked me to do anything but exactly what he had made up his mind to explain to Auntie, and ask her to give her consent to. And I feel sure she would have done so, clear Auntie, for she did get so fond of Dick." "Yes, she did," Barbara agreed. "But Miss Dorothy, you are sure it will be done properly—that you'll be married in church and have your lines, and all that?" "You are to see me married, Barbara," Dorothy answered, simply; "Mr. Harris says so." And after that Barbara gave her consent, so to speak, and promised to be true to her trust and stand by her A BURST OF GRH3F. dear Miss Dorothy as long as she lived. "I think the dear mistress would be glad if she knew. Miss Dorothy." "She did know, Barbara," said Dorothy, with a tender smile shining through her tears. So tho two sat together for a long time, talking long, and now and tlien weeping as some word -brought back the memory of their loss. And Dorothy told the faithful servant all the plans that Dick and She had made for the strange and almost unknown future, which seemed so terrible to her who had lived all her life—all that she could remember, at least—under the same roof and guarded by the same tender care. It was so sad to have so little joy in her engagement and her coming marriage, and yet, "You mustn't think that I don't love Dick," she cried to Barbara, when she had another passionate burst of grief over the dead woman lying above. "I do love him with all my heart, and I know that I shall be quite, quite happy by-and-by. But It is all so sudden, so strange and new; everything is going from me at one stroke, and after we go away from Oraveleigh I shall have nothing but you to remind me of the past at all. Why, I don't know. I am not at all sure that everything here does not belong to David. Perhaps he can even take my Lorna Doone away and—and even drown her." "Nay, nay, Mr. David won't do that," returned Barbara, soothingly. "Besides, Lorna never did belong to the mistress. Her ladyship gave her to you—the dear mistress had naught to do in the matter. Then, Miss Dorothy, dear, aren't you going to tell her ladyship about it?" "Lady Jane last of anybody," cried Barbara—"last of anybody." "I see," said Barbara, with an air of wisdom; but all the same, Barbara did not see anything. She thought the whole arrangement very strange and unusual, and she reminded herself that she had never been mixed up with anything of the kind in her life before, and now that she was being drawn into something distinctly clandestine she did not at all like it. Still, on the other hand, there was only the prospect of remaining at Graveleigh Hall under David Stevenson, and Barbara cordially detested David, as she had always done. So, between her dislike of David Stevenson and DorotKy's promise and Mr. Harris" wish that she should see the marriage take place, Barbara graciously gave" her sanction to the private union, and did not try to place any obstacles in the young folks' way. CHAPTER XL I S S DIMSDALE was laid away in Graveleigh churchyard three days lat e r. Everyone, high, low, rioh and poor for several miles around the Hall, came to pay the last token of affection and respect to her, and hitter were the tears that fell that day for the just and kind friend who was gone. Naturally a good deal of curiosity was felt about Dorothy's future, and many were the speculations as to whether she would remain at the Hall alone with Miss Barbara or whether she would eventually decide to go to Holroyd, or to take the good-looking officer who had been so frequent a visitor at the Hall for three months past. AVith regard to Dick, there was almost a quarrel, for Dorothy, as a matter of course, had invited him to the funeral, as indeed she had asked all her aunt's friends who would be likely to attend it. Now, Dorothy had not a relation in the world, excepting one cousin, at that time wintering in Egypt, and therefore unable to attend the ceremony. She did not enter the large drawing-room until the last moment before starting, and then only spoke a few words to those nearest the door. And when the time came for them to go, David Stevenson came forward, and, with a very authoritative air, solely due to the presence of his rival, offered Dorothy his arm. (To bo continued.) Natural Ferfumes and Essences. The preparation of natural essences, according to the Popular Science Monthly, is still a genuine agricultural industry. Flowers and leaves are the raw material, and they have to be treated fresh. The original laboratories are therefore generally established very near where the plants can enjoy the most favorable climatic conditions. Hence the crude essences generally come to us from various distant regions—essence of ilang from Manila, of geranium from Reunion and Algeria of lemon and citron from Ceylon and China, etc. But as the imported materials are generally scandalously adulterated, European manufacturers have been impelled to bring home such of the ci-ucle r;>:.tcrlal as will bear transportation. So aandahvoocl, cloves, patchouli leaves and vetlvert grass roots brought dried and with their scents unimpaired are distilled in France and Germany rather than in tho countries of their origin. The most important center of this manufacture is the little city of Grasse, near Nice and Cannes which, besides being a large center of production for the "'distillation of plants and woods, is tho chief place where these special processes, which have been transmitted through ages and are the only ones for the extraction of the perfumes of flowers, are in use. The only chemical agents employed in these processes are vapoi and fat. The manufactories of artificial perfumes, on the other hand, are real laboratories pf chemical products where the habitual a,geats of cheraica industry are employed, requiring the intervention of chemists and engineers and are established b y preference at the great industrial ce-uters. FINE) BIRTH PLACE OF BUDDHA, ntercstliiE Archaeological Discoveries Recently Made by Vincent Smith. Vincent Smith, a learned antiquary of Bengal, has recently made some interesting discoveries of Buddhist remains in India, says the London correspondent of the New York Sun. The first of these is the home of Gautama Buddha, who lived about 500 B. C. The ruins of th!s*ancient city of Kapila- vastu are in Nepaul territory; they are, so far as yet known, entirely of brick, and are so covered with jungle and so extensive that years will be required for their thorough exploration. Since 410 B. C. the city has been in ruins and unoccupied, and excavations are now bringing to light buildings more ancient than any previously known in India. More interesting even than Kap- ilavastu is the discovery of the Lum- bini Garden, the traditional birthplace of Gautama. The sacred spot is marked by a pillar erected In the third century B. C. by the Emperor Asoka. Tho inscription on this pillar Is still per- 'eot. It stands on the western edge of a mound of ruins about a hundred yards in diameter, and on the south side of this mound Is the tank m which the child's mother bathed after his birth. Another discovery, which was made in a stupn, or brick tumulus, close to the British frontier, is that of relics of Buddha himself. These consist only of fragments of bone, which were deposited in a wooden vessel that stood on the bottom of a massive cof- er, more than four feet long and two feet deep, cut out of a solid block of fine sandstone. This coffer was hurled under eighteen feet of* masonry, composed of huge bricks, each sixteen inches long. The wooden vessel was decayed, and with it was an exquisitely finished bowl of rock crystal, the largest yet discovered in Inuia, and also five small vases of soapstone. All these vessels were partially iillcd, in honor of the relics, with a marvelous collection of gold stars, pearls, topazes, beryls, and other jewels, and of various objects delicately wrought in crystal, agate, and other substances. An inscription on the lid of one of the soapstone vases declares the relics to be those of Buddha himself, and the characters in which this inscription is written are substantially the same as those of the Asoka inscriptions, and indicate that the tumulus was constructed between 300 and 250 B. C. Buddha spent many years preaching and teaching at the city of Sravasti, and a large number of his sayings and parables purport to have been uttered there. The site of the famous city wag long sought in vain. Mr. Smith now states with confidence that it is in the jungles of the Nepaul Terai, about eleven miles from the station of Nepalganj road, on the Bengal and Northwestern railway. Its remains, like those of Kapilavastu, are buried in jungle, 'but they seem of great extent, and arc found precisely where the Chinese pilgrims of the early centuries of the Christian era stated that Sravasti was. A REMARKABLE CASE. The following case was printed origi In The Mnmtor, a newspaper published atj Meadford, Ontario. Doubts were raised as] to its truthfulness, consequently a close watch was kept on the ease for two years and the original statement fans now been completely verified. ; ' Mr. Fetch Imd been o hopeless paralytic for five years.

RATHER SWEET. • Medical authorities believe that a given quantity of sugar is necessary to health, especially if a person is energetic. It is claimed no substance restores muscular waste so quickly as sugar. The United States and England consume enormous quantities of sugar, England using 86 pounds a year per inhabitant. In Denmark the consumption of sugar Is 45 pounds to the individual; in Holland, 31; in France, 30; in Sweden and Norway, 25; in Russia, 10; Turkey and Italy, 7; Greece, G; Servla, 4. It has long been thought that sugar Is injurious to the teeth, but it is no more so than cake or preserves. It will, of course, injure the teeth if allowed to remain in contact with them for any length of time. People of average health who are in the open air a great deal may eat all the sugar they crave without injury. , Sugar is craved by people belonging to a nation of energy and dash. Great mental exertion and high spirit create the demand. Great quantities of sugar are used in tea and coffee by English and Americans, but in Russia, where tea drinking is almost a dissipation, very little sugar is used. A fact not very well known is that a little sugar, taken with water, not too cold, in case food is not obtainable, will relieve the feeling of exhaustion and sharp hunger. Some business men keep foaf sugar in their desks and when they are detained from luncheon saturate the sugar with water and slowly eat it. It does away'with the discomfort of going without food.
