Dnvis in London Spectator. KRAMBAMBULL There may bo a feeling of fondness in a mail's heart for various things, but love, true love, love which, oiidures, comes to him but once. This at loast was tho opinion of District Ranger Hopp. It would bo no easy matter to count the dogs he had been fond of, but there was only one that he loved and will uever forget, and that was Krnra- bambuli. It was in the Lion's inn at Wishau that ho bought or rather bartered lor him with a forester's assistant, who waa then out of a place. At tho first sight of the dog he felt that affection for him which was destined to en- dnro until his hist breath. The owner of this fine creature, who sat at n table with an emptied brandy glaes before him, and scolding the host because he would not givo him another drink for nothing, looked tho vagabond that he was. He ·was short, still young, and yet as sallow as a dead tree, with yellow hair and a scanty yellpw beard. His huntsman's coat, probably a survivor of his last service, bore traces of a night spent iti a wet gutter. Although Hopp had no liking for low society, ho took a seat near tho young man and at once started a conversation with him. He soon found out that the good for nothing had pawned his carbine and gamebag to the innkeeper and wanted now to do tho same with his dog, but the host, dirty extor- tioner that he was, would not hear of a pledge that needed feeding. "'At first not a word did Herr Hopp say of his 1 iking for tho dog, but ho ordered a bottle of the fine Dantzic churry brandy lor which tho Lion inn was famous, and, pouring out a glass of it, offered it to tho ci-devant forester's assistant. Within an hour the matter was settled, the hunter gavo 12 bottles of the'eame beverage over which the transaction was concluded, and the vagabond gave the dog -- to do him justice it must be acknowledged, not easily. His hands shook so while ho tied the string around tho animal's neck that it seemed as if he would never get through. Hopp waited in patience, silently admiring the wonderful dog. At the most ho was not over 3 years old, and resembled in his coloring the rascal who now parted from him, only that he was several shades darker. His forehead was marked with a white streak which made a curve to the 'right and left like tho needles on a pine twig. His eyes were largo, black and brilliant, surrounded by light yellow rings, clear as dew, tho ears long and faultless. And faultless was everything about the dog, from his nails to his sharp little nose. "What's his name?" "His name is the eame as that with which ' you bought him -- 'Kranibam- buli' " (cherry brandy), was the answer. "Goodl Oome, Krambambuli, be oft -- forward, march!" He might have called, whistled and pulled at him forever, the dog would not obey him, but kept turning his head toward him ho still deemed his master. Then, when tho latter yelled to him, "Go on !" accompanying the order with a vigorous kick, ho howled, but still tried to crawl nearer to him. It was only after a hard strngglo that Herr Hopp succeeded in getting possession of the dog, nnd nt last ho was bound, gagged and carried on Herr Hopp's shoulders in ft bug to his house, a journey of several hours.

His master at least held long conversations with him. The ranger's wife became really jealous of Buli, as she con- .temptuously dnbbed him. Thus two years went by, when one day tli'o countess, tho wife of his employer, 'appeared in the hunter's lodge. Ho' understood at once tho moaning of the visit, and when the beautiful woman began, "Tomorrow, dear Hopp, is tho count's birthday" -- ho continued with a quiet smile -- "and your ladyship wants to make the count a present, and feels convinced that nothing could bo more suitable than Krambambuli." "Yes, yes, dear Hopp," and tho comi- tess blushed with delight at the kindness and quickness of his response, and began to speak of gratit\ide anc\ to beg iim to settle the price at once for which lie would be willing to part with tho dog. Tho old fox of a ranger tittered, looked humble, and then blurted out: "Your ladyship, if the dog stays in the'castle and does not gnaw every rope and break every chain, or if he does not break them, does not choke himself in the attempt, then you may have him for nothing -- he is worthless to me." The tost was made, but it did not get as far eta choking, for before then the count lost all iiitereat in the obstinate little beast. In vain thoy tried to win him, first by kindness, incer by severity. He bit every one who came near him, refused his food, and, as a hunting dog has not much iiosh to lose, .soon became very thin. After u low weeks Hopp got word that he might come forhis"cnr." When, making use of his permission without delay, he sought the dog in his kuuuel, there was a most joyful mooting. Krambambuli hftcd up bis voice with mi uuiwlhly howl, jumped on his mutter, nnd, resting his paws on his breast, licki'd the (ears of joy which ra» ·'.own the! old man's chroks. At thi.s time a gang of poachers ear i-k-rt on tlu-ir operations 'in u bold manner not only iti the count's fr.-iv.sts. lint among tho entire neighborhood. Their lender was iaiil to bo a disreputable follow, called the "Yellow Ouo" by tho woodcutters, who sometimes found him drinking brandy in saloons of evil repute, and by thr kcepeis, who now and then camo upon his traoks, but who could never catch him, and also by tho spies, some of whom .110 to bo found in every village. Ho was of ii snrcty tho boldest fellow who over gave tremble to honcsb hunters, and must have been himself of their trade or ho would never have been iiblo to track tho game with such success, nor have avoided so skillfully evetv trap laid to catch him. The lo«s in ( wood and game became so scricras that all the foresters were much excited. This was tho reason that those who were discovered in sonic insignificant infringement of the forest laws suffered a much harsher punishment than would have "been the case at any other time and which was out of proportion to tho offense. This caused much indignation in "the entire neighborhood, and the head forester, who was the first to feel this disaffection, received a number of well meant warnings. It was said that tho poachers hud sworn to take exemplary vengeance on him at the first opportunity. He was an active, bravo man, and, throwing all caution to the winds, he let it bo well known that he had recommended the utmost severity and .that ho would be responsible incase of any evil consequences. The district ranger, Hopp, received orders pfteuer than the others to keep a sharp lookout, and occasionally he was reproached with a lack of zeal, at which, however, tho old man only laughed, while Kram- bambuli on such occasions returned the notice" which was condescendingly shown him with a lend and disdainful yawu. His master and he were not to be vexed by anything from the'head forester. One fine morning he met the head forester as h» was assisting to evict somo trespassers. It was in the linden woods, at the end of the lordly park which bordered on the count's forest, and near tho nurseries which the head forester would have liked to surround with powder mines. The lindens were in full bloom, nnd a dozen small .boys were busy among them. Thoy crawled out oa tho boughs of the magnificent trees, breaking off all the twigs within reach, and throwing them to the ground. Two women were hurriedly picking them up and stuffing them into baskets already more than half full of their fragrant booty. Tho head forester was raging about in a furious anger. He made his keepers shako the boys out of the trees, careless of the height from which they fell. While thoy crawled at his feet, whining and crying, one with a bruised face, tho other with a sprained arm, and tho third with a broken leg, he was beating the two women with his own hands. With a shudder, Hopp recognized one of these as tho wanton girl whom rumor pointed out as the sweetheart of the "Yellow One," nnd when tho women's baskets and shawls and the boys' hats were confiscated and Hopp was ordered to take them to the justice, he could not repress a presentiment of evil. The order which the head forester then called out to him, raging like a devil in hell and like one surrounded by weeping, tormented shiners, was the last which the district ranger ever received from him. A week later he came acrosa him once more in the linden wood-dead. Judging from the condition of the body, it must have been dragged there through marshes and over stones lu order to leave it at the very spot. The head forester lay on a bier of cut branches, his head bound with a thick wreath of linden blossoms and another, like a scarf, around his breast. His hat lay beside him, filled with linden blossoms. Tho murderer had also left him his game bag, first having taken out the cartridges and filled it with the blossoms. His fine breechloader was gone, and in its place was a miserable old blunderbuss. When later they found in tho murdered man's chest tho bullet that was the cause of his death it fitted esactly iu tho muzzle of the old gun that hud been placed on his shoulder in monkery. At tho sight of tho disfigured corpse Hopp stood motionless with horror. Ho could not raise a finger, and his brain seemed paralyzed, so that at flrrt ho could not think, and it was only itffr- er some time that ho observed to himself: "What is tho matter with the dog?" Krainbambuli was smiling at tho dead mau nnd running about him like mad, his uose to the ground. He whined, gavo a cry of joy and ran on a step or two, acting altogether like oue in whom a long forgotten memory wore awakening. "To heel I" cried Hopp, "to heel 1" and Krnmbunibuli obeyed, but gavo his master a look full of wonder, and us tho huntsman expressed it, said to him: "For goodness' sake, don't you see anything? Don't you smell anything? Oh, dear master, do just look, just smell; come, master, come this way 1" Then ho rubbed his nose on the hunter's knee and then crept away to the corpse, glancing back all tho while, as if he would eay, "Won't you follow mo?" and boguu to push and pull the heavy gun and to take it in his mouth with the intention of fetching it to him. A cold shudder ran down tho hunter's back and all sorts of ideas began to glimmer in his brain. But as speculating on tho event was not his affair, nor to clear up matters for tho magistrate, but to leave the horrible find untouched and to go on his way, which now led him direct to court, he did no more than his duty required of him. After ho had done this and all the formalities that tho law requires in such catastrophes were complied with, which proceedings occupied all the entire day and part of tho night, Hopp called his, dog to his side before he went to bed and said: "My doggie, the police are now up and nbont, and thoro will bo no end of I loft him -i. \vlio V !. "nt -A hat food goings oil. Shall we leave it to others to rid, tho world of tho scoundrel who shot our head forester? My doggiu knows tho vile rascal, knows him--yi-s yes, but iiobody else kuows it. 1 didn't mention the fact, h:i, ha! I bring my dog into this muddle--I'miiot thinking of it." He Lent down ovor Krambam- buli, who snt between his outspread legs, and pressed his check to tho dog's head, receiving iu return hisgrateful caressi*-;, and all tho time he hummed softly, "What is my Krambambuli doing': 1 ' until sleep overcame him. Psychologists Imvo tried to explain tho mysterious attraction which drav, ; so many criminals bucS; to tho scene of theircrime. Hopp knew nothing of .such ecieutifio matters, but nevertheless lie, with bis dog, scoured restlessly tho vicinity of tho linden wood. On thy tenth day after tho death of tho bo «l forester he had been able for the lir.-r, time since then, to turn bis thoughts to something besido bis revenge :ind was busying himself iu the count's woods with marking tho trees which were to be cut at the next felling. When this work was finished, ho slung bis rifle over bis shoulder u:id took the shortest way straight through the forest to the nurseries near the Ji:idea wood. .Tnst as bo was entering tho path tbnfc ran along tho beech hedge 1 it seemed to him that he heard, something ruitle iu the leaves, but then followed quiet, uubrokou stillness. Ho would almost havo belioved that it bad been nothing of any importance if tho dog had not stared in tho bushes in such :i curious fashion. Ho stood -with his hair bristling, his ueck extended, his tail straight and glared at a portion of the hedge. "Ho, hoi" thought Hopp, "wait, you rascal, if that's who it is," ami stepping behind a treo ho cocked Jiis rifle. His heart beat violently, his breath, already shoi-6, almost lei I him when he saw tho "Yellow Ouo ! step suddenly out into the path. Two young hares hung out of his game bug, aud over his shoulder, suspended by tho well kuown Russian leather strap, he bore tho head forester's breechloader. What a dolight it would have been to shoot dowu the scoundrel from his safe ambush 1 But Hopp would not ehoot at tho meanest villain without first giving him ·warning. At ouo bound ho sprang from behind the tree ou to thu path aud called: "Surrender, limb of satau!" and when, for answer tho poacher toro his breechloader from his shoulder the hunter iked--by all tho saints, a pretty fire 1 There was a crack instead of a ro- port. Tho gun had been left too long with tho percussion cap exposed against a tree iu the damp woods, and it missed flre. "Good uightl Now we'll know what death looks like," thought tho old man, aud at the same, moment off went his hat into the grass. The other had bad luck as well, tho rascal 1 Tho only cartridge iu his guii lost, aud ho was just ou the point of putting iu nuother out of his pocket -when-"Seize him!" cried Hopp hoarsely to his dog. "Seize him I" and-"Come to me, here, Krambambuli," was hoard from a kind, coaxiug and, alas, well known voice. And the dog! What now happened, happened much more quickly than it takes to tell it. Ki-auibambuli had recognized his first master and was running toward him. When he was half way to him, Hopp whistled, imd the dog turned round; tho "Yellow One" whistled and the dog stopped again, writhing in despair midway between tho hunter aud tho poacher, longing to go and yet banished from both. At last the poor animal gavo up the pitiful, useless fight and put nu eud to his indecision, but iiot to his torment. Barking, howling, his stomach flat oa tho ground, his body stretched out liko oue sinew, his head raised upward as ii calling heavau to witness his agony of miud, he crept--toward his first master. This sight awakened a lust of blooc in Hopp. With trembling fingers he piit in a uew cap and aimed calmly. Tho "Yellow One" also aimed at him again. Now the time was coruo 1 Each of them was covered by tho other's gun, aud knew it, but no matter what went ou inside of thorn they fired as quietly as a couple of painted marksmen. Two balls flew ou, tho hunter's to it: goal, the poacher's--iu the air. His band had trembled because just as ho fired the gun tho dog had jumped upon him with a storm of caresses. '' Beast!'" he hissed, fell backward and moved no more. His executioner stepped slowly forward. " You have enough," bethought. "It were a pity to waste a single grain of shot more on you." Nevertheless ho rested his gunou the ground aud loaded it with a bullet. The dog was sitting upright iu front of him. his tongue hanging out, aud ho was panting quick and loud, his eyes fixed ou bis master. When the hunter was ready with hit gnu again iu his hand, tlie two held n conversation, of which no witness coulc ever have heard a word, evou though bo had been a live one instead of the deat oue. "Dost know for whom this lead meant?" "I can imagine." "Deserter, toady, faithless brute!" "Yes, master; yes." "Thou wast my joy; iiow all is over I have no pleasure in thec.'' "I understand, master," and Kram bambuli lay down, resting his head o his outstretched fore-paws and gazed a his master. If tho cursed animal had only 110 looked at him, thero would have been quick ending that would havo save himself and tho dog much sorrow, bu it could iiot bo. One doesn't shoot creature that looks at one iu that mar nor. Herr Hopp mnttcrod iiumberle.' curses between his teeth, each one moi blasphemous than tho last, and haiigin his guii over his shoulder onco more, h went off, taking with him tho tw yomig rabbits from tho poacher. Tho dog followed him with his eye until ho had disappeared through tho trees; then he roso, imd his howl, penetrating to tho very marrow, echoed throughout tho forest. He turned round in a circle several times and then sat down besido the dead. When night was sinking, bo was found thero by tho judicial commission, which, led by Hopp, came to view the corpse aud carry it j n.t biv.iJJ.is-t ! off.

Testing Conl by X liuytf. The method of testing coal by X rays is being employed by many inauufac- ;urcrs, who state that it makes a coii- sideiublo difference ill their fuel bills. It is found that by turning tho rays on lo Ihe c-o:il they can tull how much of it will remain us a?hcs after ic has en burned and how much will escape as gas. This is manifestly of the first importance to ::11 users of hteani power. The lowest priced coal is nob necessarily tho cheapest. Tho percentage of ash is one of tho best indications of the team making qualities of coal. A coal which leaves a large amount of ash has of course a relatively small amount of ombustiblo constituents, and vice versa. The shadow produced upon tho fluoroscope by a piece of coal of a given bizo and thickness is apparently dependent for its relative density upou tho amount of ash producing material in tho piece of coal. A number of samples of uniform thickness of various kinds of coal having known percentages of :ih aro pro- pared. The density of tho shadow cast by these iu tho lluoroscopo is compared with that of tho coal to bo tested, aud tho quantity uf ash per ton in tho sample under consideration is immediately shown with considerable accuracy.-London Standard. An Aaccdoto of Lincoln. At 0110 period during tho rebellion thoro woio no less thaa 7-i major gen- evals and 2TG brigadiers en tho roll*. which WKS far inoro than t)n.ro was any use for.

It is recalled th..t cu ouo occasion, wheu 0110 of tin-so Hipi'rliuous generals was captured by the eiKjiiiy, v.'ith a number of men and horses, somebody undertook to condole with thu pujitdent on the subject, icm.irking ihat-lho lo.-s of the captured Kent-!al'ii scrvico vrab a great misfortune to the povormnout. "Pooh-," replied Lincoln, "it's the hor=es I'm thinking about. 1 c:-n make another brigadier general iu two .minutes, but hordes are scarce and ccbfc $2CO apiece." --Kansas City Journal.
