It is the story of a Union soldier who was killed and buried on the field of battle, yet who was resurrected and rejoined his family and friends. Pew tales of fiction approach in interest this romance of a real Enoch Arden, whom cruel fate relegated to n penitentiary. On April 0, 1862, William Newby, private in an Illinois regiment, was killed and buried on tho field of Shiloh. At all events, no question of the fact was raised for nearly 30 years. Ho left in the town of Carmi, Ills., a widow and n mother. Nearly four years ago n man walked into Carmi, hntiess and by no moans well clad, and announced that ho was Newby, the lost soldier. Nobody recognized him at first, and this was not surprising after suoh a lapse of time. But ho talked with old residents of tho place and recalled so many antowar incidents, with reminiscences of persons and places, that finally they were convinced of his identity. Ho explained that he had boon shot in the head and left on the battlefield. Afterward he recovered consciousness and was made a prisoner, being taken to Libby prison. Being partly deprived of reason by his wound, he spent many years in ttenry A. ttaieti's proposed Ueeord Bleating Trip In ttl* Steel Airship. Henry A. tiafccn, the American aero naut and scientist, proposes to make n recor.l breaking ton mile trip above the earth in an airtight steel oar, fitted with parachute and steering gear, that Will permit of its use as a boat, if need bo. The ascension Will bo made at somo fioint out west. Meteorological experts and all persons Who are interested in ballooning will watch this novel experiment with lively hope. Tho kaiser himself takes n lively interest in the trip, because ono of the results foreshadowed is the solution of the mooted problem of the direction of the air currents. This has special military importance, affecting, as it does, another problam agitating military strategists— viz, will the dynamite and the destructive chemical bearing airship ever be a reality of the War of the future? Hazen Will substitute for the ordinary open basket a cabin furnished With pure oxygen, and With apparatus for producing either heat or cold in an emergency. It will have in addition arrangements for generating and passing upward through direct tube connections any amount of gas to replace the gas in the balloon. These novelties, therefore, will do away with sorao of the greatest difficulties aeronauts have heretofore encountered. — Now York World. It IS SAID THAT ABERDEEN WILL BE NKXT LORD-LIEUTENANT.

There he met an old' man named Joseph Newby, brother of tho William who fought at Shiloh. This aged pauper was rather garrulous and had many stories to impart about his brother William, the history of tho family, incidents respecting old residents of Carmi and its neighborhood, etc. Incidentally it was made to appear that William, if he were alive, would be entitled to $20,000 iu pension arrears. The new acquaintance listened until he was chock full of information. Then he declared to the astonished Joseph that he was in very truth his long lost brother, William Newby. This part of the story did not come out until later. Meanwhile friendly citizens of Carmi sent to Tennessee for William Newby's wife. She came, but at first repudiated the alleged lost soldier. Nevertheless he succeeded in persuading her fully of his identity, while his supposed mother recognized him almost immediately as her sou. Presumably there would never have been any further dispute in the matter, and the •soidisant Newby would have received the $30,000 .pension money for which he at once-applied had it not; been that he was accidentally recognized •by an ex-convict, who declared that be had .wet him in tho penitentiary at Nashville, where he was known as Rickety Dan Beaton and, was serving an 18 years' sentence for horse stealing. This caused an investigation, Thomas H. MoBride, one-of.-the:most expert officers in tbe employ of the pension office, was sent to look the^matter up. He traced the history, of Dan Benton back to his earliest childhood, account- jp'g for every year pf his Jife, He was born in Tennessee and was rickety frow infancy, His wife and son were found and recognized him witb' out hesitation, In short, the mesbes about him so closely that to be HO possibility of escape, Bvit tbe other side was equally strong.

In the quarterly journal of the Neurological society, called Brain, jusMs- sued, there is a curious and interesting paper by Mr. Lewis C. Bruce on a case he had carefully studied. Tho peculiarity of the case was this—that it appeared to show that, while some general deterioration of the brain was going on, it Was'going on at a different rate in the two lobes of the brain; that sometimes the right side of the braiu alone acted, in which case the patient talked almost only Welsh and had hardly any interest in life at all, showing no sort of eager ness either for money or tobacco or anything but his food alone, and that he was almost entirely left handed and idiotic, while when that side of the brain became inert and the other took its place he spoke chiefly English, was eager for money and tobacco, and even thievish in his desire to possess himself of these objects, and right handed in his physical habits, and that for a certain interval between the two conditions he had a short period in which ho mingled Welsh and English words, used both hands and showed an intermediate sort of disposition, being more alive than in his left handed condition, when he spoke Welsh almost exclusively, and we imagine, less alive than in his right handed condition, when ho spoke chiefly English.—New York Post. It is stated that Lord Aberdeen is to leave Canada and his gubernatorial position to become lord lieutenant of Ireland. This last is indeed exciting news and unprecedented. The governor general of Canada is appointed for five years, and the Earl of Aberdeen has served but two. Moreover, he cannot leave the country v;ithout especial and specific permission from her majesty the queen —not even to cross the border and enter the Unitad States. Thus, if Lord Aberdeen goes to Ireland, it must bo looked upon as a recall for some good reason and a transfer to other office. It is said that Lord Houghtun, present lieutenant governor of Ireland, is to enter the cabinet, and thoro is no doubt that Lord Aberdeen would bo amazingly pleasing to the people as his successor. The Aberdeeus have been always more or less identified with Ireland. Lady Aberdeen is openly proud of having had tho great O'Neills, kings of an oieut Hiberuia, for her ancestors, and^ as every one knows, she is president of the Irish Industries association and has probably done more to popularize Irish work than has any other living being. Lord Aberdeen, too, is used to Ireland and tho Irish people. In brief biography Right Hon. John Campbell Hamilton Gordon, seventh earl, sou of the Earl of Aberdeen, prime minister in 1854, was born in 1847 and was educated at the University college Oxford, where he graduated in 1871. He succeeded to the title on the death of his brother in 1870. He entered the house of lords, but in 1870 ho disagreed with Borne of tho principal measures of his party. In the debate on tho Afghan war ho voted against the government of Lord Beaconsfleld. In 1886, having by this time become a member of tho Liberal party, he was appointed by Mr. Gladstone lord lieu tenant of Ireland, with the mission of carrying out th,o home rule policy. In KARL OP ABERDEEN. An E*tf*«i6ed fcftir fcetmlted ihrottgii ft Ke«f*papcr IteM. Here ia a story that is the aftermath of 5 romance and the prologue of a wedding. It occurred recently in a Cincinnati store: A handsome blond gentleman walked from tho elevator at the third floor, evidently in a state of expectant perturbation, and after n hurried glance about the room walked hastily toward a pretty black haired saleswoman. Tho young lady, hearing his approach, turned half around to wait on a prospective cus tomer. Tho gentleman grabbed tho lady before she had turned completely around, and drawing her close to him planted a kiss upon her rosy lips. Clerks and customers looked on askance until an explanation Was made. Mrs. Ella Gruenmeier was the saleswoman, and the man who embraced her was Mr. Charles Gruenmeier, her ex husband. Four years ago Mr. and Mrs. Gruenmeier occupied a handsome home on East Fail-field avenue, Dayton, Ky. They had been married two years, auc a pretty littlo girl was tho fruit of thci union. He began to indulge in mild_dis sipation and lost his position. Strainec relations between husband and wife fol lowed, and they finally separated. For three years Mrs. Grucurneior heard nothing of her husband. She sought and obtained a decree of divorce upon tho grounds of desertion and failure to provide. Their little daughter became dangerously ill of typhoid fover, and she published tho fact in a newspaper. This was noticed by tho father at his new homo in Chicago, and he wrote to his former wife as to the condition of tho littlo one. This led to a correspondence between the separated ones, and learu- iug that Mrs. Gruenmeier had secured a divorce Gruenmeier went to her. The scene described above resulted. Mrs. Gruenmeier took her daughter to sec her father, and for the first time in four years the little family was reunited. He returns to the Windy City to wind up his business affairs, after which he will remarry his wife. i| B « Williams Claims the tnlqae DlsilftW tlon and talks of He* Wftftt. "My reason lor becoming ft clown, '* laid Miss Williams, the 0nly_lady ciotfii on earth, according to the circus bills, was to make money. My father was clown for 40 years. He had 21 children, and all of them were in this business ia some capacity or other, generally acrobats a'ud tumblers. 1 was not suited for an acrobat. It is too hard work. I thought that I would become a clown. There are 12 of our family now in the circus business. Every day I try think out something new, and the to management usually gives me pretty Wide latitude. 1 am a fair tumbler and manage to get along all right. 1 shall probably stop in this business tiutil.I get married. Of course I hope to get; married some day. Every woman does." Miss Williams is a rather undersized woman, about 25 years old, with an abundance of health and energy. Sbo rides a bicycle, swings Indian clubs and does everything else that a man does to keep herself in proper trim. Olio of her favorite tricks as a clown is to put on a bonnet and a long cloak and then sit by some innocent youiig man in the audience. In uino cases out of ton he is very much preoccupied in the performance and docs not pay any attention to her. Suddenly sho astonishes hira^ by shouting to tho ringmaster for a job. Ho takes tho cuo and begins to dicker with her. "How much will you give me?" "Ten dollars a performance." "Oh, nol This young man here that am engaged to will give mo more than that to stop herewith him." (Great confusion of tho young man referred to, if ho does not grasp the situation. ]— New York Times. A MARVELOUS MIRROR. t Dr THE MEXICAN BOUNDARY. The Westward Half of the New Survey Has Just Been Completed Since July, 1892, the international boundary commission, with a staff of 80 engineers, soldiers and laborers, has been engaged in resurveyiug the bound- lino between the United States and Mexico from El Paso, Tex., to San Diego, Gal.

Reported Discovery of Accurate Means to Determine the Paternity of Children. Nothing has so agitated Paris for a long time as the reported discovery by M. Groussier of a scientific means of tracing the paternity of children who know not.their own fathers. : It is easy to understand with what alarm the news of such a discovery will be received in a country where illegitimacy is so common as in France. The announcement may possibly cause some tremors of nervousness even in America. The Paris journalists have speedily recognized that nothing could appeal more directly to the interests of their readers, and they have been interviewing everybody of consequence about the probable truth and effect of the momentous news. It is declared that it is time to call a halt .in the relentless march of science when it becomes so presumptuous as to invade domestic secrets which it has no right to expose.—New York Sun. Royal Etiquette Versus Enthusiasm. Says Tho Pall Mall Gazette: '.'An incident of the queen's, journey to the south deserves to be recorded.

Lord Aberdeen is a member of many Protestant religious societies, at whose meetings he frequently presides. When he was viceroy of Ireland, he occupied Dublin castle and had all the state and splendor of a court. This seemed tho natural atmosphere of the Aberdeens, a thing which chilly Canada never quite granted.—Chicago Post. The Canadian Problem.

Peate's Magnificent Gift to the New American University. At his homo in Greenville, Pa., in a shop to which ia attached a testing gal- lory GO feet in length, the Rev. John- Peate, D.

A dozen years ago the doctor conceived tho project of grinding the principal mirror of a reflecting telescope, and, to use his own phrase, "groped" his way to success in a field where tha angels of science tread lightly, if at all, and in which a single incautious touch may result in hours of retrieving toil. He has produced specula 6, 8, 12 and 20 inches in diameter, and a year or two since finished a disk of 30 inches for presentation to Alleghany college. If : he shall succeed in the incredibly difficult task of imparting a perfect figure' to tho present disk, which is 62 inches in diameter, it will be a remarkable: triumph of skill and a prodigy of labor. —Philadelphia Ledger.
