THE COUBlER. ALGONA, IOWA, FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER &, 1894i K*. . . THE ,. Master of the Mine. BY ROBEttT BUCHANAN. •and a ftreat rlnRing cheer, the boat was hauled high and dry, and we were safe. MV first thought was of Madeline. I lifted her out in my strong arms, and carried her Into the.Shelter ol'the boat-house. Her face and hands were cold as Ice, and she was still swooning. 1 called out for brandy; and, ..thank God t a man handed me a full flask. ' Supporting her head' upon my shoulder, I • moistened her lips with the raw spirit, and •once more, in my wild anxiety,'! breathed her name. Once more she opened her eyes and looked upon me; still there was no sign whatever of recognition. She looked wl'^'y round her,Baw the rough Imt kindly faces on every side, and murmured : "Where am I? Who calls me?" "You are quite sale," I cried; "safe, and among friends." Again she looked up into my face, as if stupefied. I hcid the flask to her lips, and she seemed to swallow a little; then a shudder ran through her frame, and she released herself fl'rtni fllyl'ioldi ' • I placed her on one of the wooden seats, and bent over her tenderly watching her. Gradually I saw tho color come back to her «heeks, but very faintly. ."Anita!" she murmured, and looked round as if seeking some one. Th6rouglMellows, clustering in the boathouse,- murmured sy,mpathi2in?Jy; whispered encomiums on her beauty passed from mouth to mouth. And Indeed she looked strangely lovely, even in her desolation—her eyes brightening, her color coming and going, her hair streaming over her shoulders, her neck and arms and feet as while as driven snow I As her strength and Konaciousness returned, a new awe fell upon me, and 1 stood timidly watching her. , She gazed at me again. "Now I understand," she said. "Tell me of the others; are they saved V" I told her the truth, and again she shuddered, half closing her eyes, as if to shut out the picture ot tho horrors of the wreck. At that moment some-of the life-boat's men ap- 'paared, leading with them the colored woman, who, the instant she saw Madeline, 1 sprung toward her and knelt by her side, hysterically sobbing, and kissing her hands. Madeline bent over her and addressed her In'&rtiio foreign tongue—Portuguese, I after- wara discovered. She answered volubly in ^the same speech. I suspected the truth, that this 'K&ck sirl was an attendant or waiting- maid Tf som'e sort, and that Madeline was her mretress. Turning to one of the rescued sailors, who had now approached aiid was phlegmatlcally chew'ine; a quid as it ho had Just been comfortably lauded froin-a passing boat c I questioned him concerning tho lost vessel. She was a large trading-steamer, he said, bound from Demerara to the port of London; her name, the Valparaiso; her captain one John Stetson, a good sailor, who had been killed by the falling "of the foremast, and swept overboard. Her passage across the Atlantic had been smooth and pleasant; but the night before she had experienced all the strength of the great gale, and while contending with It had broken her propeller. After that, she had tried to lie to under sail, and had she found sea-room would doubtless have b>3n able to weather the storm; but, as ill-luck would have it, the rocks of Cornwall were right under her .lee, and the wind and sea swept her clown upon them. I questioned him. concerning that episode of the boat. Ho explained that two of the boats had been smashed into fragments when the .ship first struck. The long-boat remained, and at daybreak, after tho captain perished, the first officer, fancying that 'theiBhip was doomed, determined to make for shwe. 'All the crew followed him but my informant and two others,'who preferred sticking 1 by the .steamerto facing certain deatli. The men,' in 1'nct, were mad with fright and drink combined, and for this reason, perhaps, altogether forgot to wait for Madeline, who had gone below. So the last boat left the ship, it had not gone far, when;Madeline reappeared. She would have.been swept away 'but for the as- ; gistance of tho sailors, who strapped her to ! the mast as the.only chance of safety; and as-she stood there terror-stricken, she saw the boat ingulfed with all Its crew, the same sad sight which we had seen from land. i it turned out, on further questioning, that Miss Graham was the only passenger, and occupied, with her colored maid, the cap-, tain's owii .cabin. Her father, a rich De- inerara planter, had died some mouths before she t(ibk passage, leaving her a great in- heritanciv I had no time to answer for myself the many questions which crowded upon my mind—"Why. Madeline had come to England? Whether she had any relations surviving in the old country'? Whether any living person, lover or friend, had the right to protect her? But I Ipoked at her again, and thought how different she was from all tho.other women I had known, in her queenly grace and vi'armth of beauty. Beside her, even my cousin Annie would have looked , coarse"and common. But there was no time to bo lost, if she was to escape the consequences' of that night's exposure. She was still dripping wet, and tho morning air was bitterly cold. "You must hot stay here," I said,, approaching her, "or you will catcli your death. Do you think you can ascend the cliffs? My aunt's cottage is close by, andi should like to take you there at once." l _^ Sherose, at once, shivering, and took my "*~^' leading, ' "' half supporting her, I guided h()r outi,pt' the. boat-house, and up the 8tee«3 ascent' loading to tho' summit of the crag, my.uncle helping her upon tho other side. Some of the others followed, leading the colored girl, , It was a steep climb; and before we had gone far we found that her strength was.fail- ing her, so that wo were compelled to raise her bodily hi our arms;but she was light and fragile enough, aiid, for my own part, I could havo carried her like a child. Once on tho' summit, we rested again, while some of the men went in chase of a moor pony, one ot several grazing on the moor hard by. When it was secured, and bridled $id bitted with a stout rope, 1 lifted her upon it, and placed the black girl by her side; and tlins, still holding her and walking by her side, while the men followed behind like a procession, I conducted,her to our cottage and handed her over to the care of my kind aunt.' Thus God, In a mysterious fashion, had re,stored to me the being who had.bcen to me tor so many years a sweejt memory and a delightful vision. 1 felt strangely h,oppy, yet troubled; unable yet to realize what had token place. When my aunt had led Mad, 1 *line to ft chamber op-stairs, where she tenet- .<ejl her with motherly sympathy and tender, ness, I sat in the kitchen, waitl&g and wou- like one In a dream, passed my time with tolerable tranquillty; ' but now that she had been so miraculously restored to me, the old fire was rekindled in, my soul, and I became another man. Her very presence in the house that night drove away all thoughts of sleep. I paced my room with restless footsteps, and when the dawn broke I hurried off to the shore. What a change had come 1 The wind had died, the sea was .like glass,' and the only record left of • the storm was the wreckage which had-'been cast upon .the sands. Early as I 'Was, there were others before me, gazing eagerly seaward, and searching along the cliffs for a prize. I took a Walk round by the mine, and, having made a hasty inspection, 1 hurried back to the cottage, eagerly hoping, yet half dreading, to see Madeline. But 1 was disappointed. My uncle had gone to his work. My aunt was busy, but alone. I looked round the kitchen, and my heart gave a great throb. After all, the events of the past night were real. There, hanging beside the fire, was the cloak—a rich mantle of silk and fur—which had been clinging round Madeline's form when f. took her from the wreck. I inquired eagerly for Madeline. "Have you seen her, aunt?" I asked. "Is she well? How does she look?" I suppose there was something peculiar in my manner, for.my aunt gazed at me- curiously, and Said: . "Who be she, Hugh? Dost knaw who she be?" "Yes," 1 replied; "she is Miss Madeline Graham. She was at school with me long ago. Just before my father died she left, and 1 have never seen her since." At that moment the door opened, and the figure of the black woman appeared. In the light Of day she looked foreign indeed—a slight, delicate girl, shivering with the cold of our raw climate. I asked her how her. mistress did. She made no answer, but stared vacantly at me; and I then discovered that she knew no language but the one in which she had spoken to Madeline. I looked at my aunt, and she understood—she went herself into the bedroom to see how her guest was getting on. She was away only a few minutes, yet it seemed to me an hour. When she came back, she smiled atmy anxious look. "It be all right, lad, it be all right," she said. ''The lady ba nawn tho .worse o' her watting; but she be tired, and will stawp in bed to-day. She be a pratty creature, Hugh, and rich, 1 darsay; for her fingers be covered wl' dawmond rings." All that day, overcome by the fatigue through which she had passed, Madeline remained in her chamber, while I, utterly unable to work, hung like a restless spirit about the house. The next morning she awoke refreshed; and when we three sat at breakfast, she astonished us all by appealing amongst us, fully dressed, and looking bright raid well. Her advent causcd 1 a ; general exclamation; my aunt ran forward to her assistance; my uncle placed our most comfortable chair beside the fire; while I, dumb and powerless, stood in tho background doing nothing. Madalinel Could this be Madeline?—the little girl I had dreamed ot all these years, whose hands had been covered with passionate kisses and marked with my tears, and who had even wept a little herself at parting with me; could this be the same?—this glorious creature, with dreamy black eyes, warm brown skin, and glorious black hair! Her form was tall and straight as a willow; she moved like a queen! . . As all her own clothes had been lost in the wreck, she wore a dress of my aunt;.over it she had thrown tho cloak which she had worn on the wreck, and which was now thoroughly dried. She came .forward Ian-! guiUly,'leaning oivthe shoulder of her black | attendant, and sank down' into the chair] which my uncle had placed for her, while the native began crying and kissing her hands. They spoke together in the foreign tongue; then Madeline raised her eyes and looked quietly around. All this while 1 had been standing in the background, longing, yet dreading to speak to her; for I saw clearly enough that to her all the past was forgotten ; but now, as her eyes swept the room and finally rested with a look of recognition on my face, 1 felt the hot blood mount to ray temples. .. - "Am I mistaken?" she asked, softly; "did you not take me from the wreck?" 1 bowed my head. In a moment all her languor disappeared, the old fire darted from her eyes, the old flush suffused her cheeks— she was the Madeline of my childhood once more. She looked at her hands, with one quick movement pulled oil the most valuable of her rings and-hcld it toward me. "Will you not take it?" she said, with a bright smile. "You saved my life." Her whole manner was that of a lady speaking to an inferior. 'Under my excitement I hardly noticed it. Scarcely knowing what I did, 1 sprung forward and took the ring; then, eagerly kissing her hand, I placed it again upon her finger. ''Madeline," I said, "don't you know me-? Madeline—Miss Graham 1" She looked at me more critically, and shook her head. "Have you forgotten Minister's?" I said, "and Hugh Trelawney?" If I expected a wild outburst of pleasure at the mention of my own namo, 1 was quickly disappointed. She only smU?d; and, with her "eyes fixed upon vacancy as if she was reviewing the past, said: ' "Minister's? Hugh Trelawney'? Oh, yes; of course, I remember now! Hugh Trelawney was the nicest of those Minister boys, and we were friends; but," she added, fixing her eyes anxiously upon me, "surely you are not that boy?" "Yes," I replied,"! am Hugh Trelawney!" Her eyes opened wider, she glanced from me to my uncle and aunt, then round the kitchen,'then she wassilent. . > I felt that 'some explanation was due to her, and I gave it. I told her of my father's death—of tho kindness of my uncle and Hunt, and of my subsequent life at St. Gurlott's. "Sfc Giirlott's?" sl(o suid. -'is this St. Gur- lott's in Cornwall'?" 1 answered in the affirmative. It was all real; whether I had really seen Madeline, and whether thti one real romance of my life had been ruthlessly swept away. It was clear to me now that she thought little ot the past, and cared for it even less. 1 ' While I had been living upon the memory of those dear days, she had let other events obliterate it entirely from her mind. Well, it was clear I must do the same. I must deliver her up to the custody of her iiolations as coldly as if she wwe a stranger who had casually becti'cast in my path for a day. Having made my decision, 1 became calmer, and walked with a steady stop up to Redruth House. I Inquired for the young master; learned that he had left for London two days before. I asked for the mistress, and she saw me. She listened to my story quietly enough; when I showed her the ring, her white face flushed, her hand trembled, and her eyes filled with tears. "It is my brother's, my poor brother's," she said, more to herself than to mo; then she added, "My niece is at your cottage, you say?" "Yes, madam." "Tell her, I will come to her at once." I left the house, and, Instead ot returning to the cottage, walked straight down to tho mine. Where was the use of my returning to Made!hie; to stand by and see that grim and stony-hearted woman bring to her queenly eyes the light of happiness, to her lips the cry of joy, which the sight of my face had failed to do? No; such a sight might have roused all that was bad in my nature. I was better away. All day I worked with a fierce persistence which alarmed me. I looked at myself :! Sn- my mining suit, then recalled Madeline as/I had seen her that morning—with her soft hands sparkling with gems, and the black servant crouching at her feet—and realized more than ever the distance that divided us from one another. She was the mistress, born to command; I the servant, whose business it was to obey.' I returned home in the evening, and found the cottage much the same as it had always been. Madeline was gone. "She be up at Redruth House, Hugh," said my aunt. "Tho awld missus came and took her away, and right glad she was to go, poor lassl" She showed me a five-pound note which Madeline had given her, borrowing it from her aunt to do so. She put the note into an old work-box wf ere most of her treasures were kept, and set about getting the tea, imagining that the -romance of last night's wreck had ended. CHAPTER XV. TJXDER THE 8FKI.Ii..' For some days after that I saw nothing' whatever of Madeline; indeed, so close was she kept in the great house, that she might never have existed at all. I began to think that she had taken her departure from Cornwall; but 1 was wrong. One day, the seventh from that on which the life-boat had brought Madeline to shore, I made a 'minute inspection of the mine, which every day grew more dangerous, and came up from my work .covered with filth from head to foot 1 had passed the last ladder, and stood on terra •flrrma, at the mouth of the mine, dazzled by the quick transformation from pitch darkness to broad daylight, when my ears were struck by the sound of a voice which passed \ like sudden music through iny frame. I rubbed my eyes and looked about me, and there, i not far from where I stood, was my old sweetheart She was dressed now in an ele- 1 gant costume of gray, which fitted her to . perfection; a little hat with long plumes was" on her head, and her face, looking lovelier than ever, glowed and sparkled in the light; with her'rich brown skin and sparkling bla.ck eyes,.her erect carriage, graceful tread, shg? looked like some Eastern princess 1 ! She was walking toward the spot where I stood; George Redruth was beside her; while behind followed the black girl, Anita, her dark eyes fixed upon her mistress. This sudden. encounter had so unnerved mo that, fora nomeut, it deprived me of the power both if speech and motion. Quickly recovering To be continued . _ . ih» F««t Tean. (1807 to 1819.)

Few men In Kentucky are better known than H'on. John M. Bice, of Louisa, Lawrence County, late Circuit JudRe ot the Sixteenth Judicial District of Kentucky, and few men In that or any other State have passed through a more remarkable experleuce and live to toll the tale. About six years ago he was attacked TV 1th sciatic rheumatism, which developed to fast that he BOOH lost all control of his legs. His whole systsrn became deranged und ho 'was Indeed a physltul wreck. The muscles of his limbs wore reduced by atrophy to mere strings, and he felt that his life was gradually wearing away. Eminent physicians were consulted and all known moans of relief employed without avail, and It Indeed seemed as though Kentucky was to lose one .of her most valued citizens. It was at this time that Judge Rice first heard of Dr. Williams' l j lnk 1'llls for Pale People. Ho promptly- applied them to his own'case, und as a result he Is to-day a well man. The effect of the -Pills was marvelous. Judge lilco regained the power of his limbs, bis appetite returned, and nature again performed her V^anctlons properly. The above case was Investigated and vouched for by the Covlngton Post, and stands as one of tho most remarkable cures known In the annals of medicine. No discovery In medicine has created more discussion, both In medical circles and In the newspapers, than Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The many remarkable stories that have been published of tho cures affected by these pills have brought them Into tho greatest prominence boi.h In this country and abroad. 'J hoy have been analyzed by some of the most eminent chemists and it has been ascertained that they are an unfulllue speclQc for such diseases as loco motor atuxla, partial paraly: slB.

The Magnificent Collection by Rev. Scott Watson of Gnttenbnrg. Doubtless the most complete set of ancient Jewish coins in this country is that which forma a part of the numis- matical collection of the Rev. W. Scott Watson of Quttenburg 1 , N. J. It was gathered during his sojourn in Syria and far exceeds in the number of specimens that of any ot our public museums. The oldest coins in the strictly Judean series are two of Simon Maccabaeus, bearing the date of the "fourth year," which corresponds wfth 135 B. 0. (Mr. Watson has coins of Syria much older than these, his Phoenician series going back nearly 2,300 years, to about 400 B. C.) These are followed by specimens of tho coinage of John Hyrcanus (135100 B. C.) and Alexander Jannueus (10578 B. C.). Then come issues of the mints of the Herodian family, Herod the Great, Herod Archelaus and Herod Agrippa being represented. There are also quite a number of the coins of the procurators who governed Judea under the emperors Augustus, Tiberias, Claudius and Nero. The set closes wlth'pieces issued by the victors and the vanquished about the time that Jerusalem was captured by Titus, and others struck by tho insurgents during the BO called second revolt under Bar Cochab (132-135 A. D.), but among the specimens most interesting to the general reader are those of the king who was reigning in Jerusalem when Jesus Christ was born and those of 1'ontius Pilate, before whom ho was brought for sentence. The latter have on them as their date the seventeenth year of tho Emperor Tiberius, i. e., 30-31 A. D. The various "mites" are also of much interest. Such a collection as this one has a special value to students of palaeo- graphy. It furnishes contemporary representations of the forms of Jotters in use at different periods, The oldes specimens have their inscriptions only in the ancient Hebrew characters which differ greatly from the square characters no win common use. In the time of Alexander Jannaeus we find bilingual coins, the Hebrew languo.go and letters being em ployed on one side and the Greel language and characters on tho other The pieces of the Herodian family anc of the Roman governors have Greel alone. The use of this in (''^ferenco to Latin, even on Roman eoA \ is one o the many facts that proV V the wide prevalence of Greek at tl\ iime tha tho new testament was writ\ \. Th antiforeign spirit of the rev\ ^s undo The Language of Ants. It hits long been* believed that ants' lavo means of communicating with eaott ther and Lubbock and Landoia gathx red from their researches 011 the sub-! ect that the insects do so by means of! ounds too high in pitch to affect the< nman ear. Janet, a French naturalist 1 Annales Entomologiques of France,. XLIId), has recently shown that cor- 1 tain ants make stridnlating noises nnaV gous to those of crickets, produced by' he rubbing together of. some of the ! many rugose or roilgh; surfaces to B» ound on their bodies. These noises, jo slight to be heard when made by nly one insect, may be detected by mprisoning a lot of ants between two >ieces of glass in a space surrounded >y a ring of putty. On holding, this to he ear one may hear, by listening, at- 1 entirely, a gentle murmur, likened by Janet to that made by a liquid boif- ng slightly in a closed vessel,, varied now and then by distinct stridulating ounds. These sounds are heard onlf when the ants are disturbed. * Vine Culture Exacting. Viticulture, as it is carried on in France-demands constant labor with the. hands throughout the year. Tho pre'p-i aration of the soil, the trimming of the; plants, the removal and replacing ot> poles, tho watchful outlook for insects^ injurious to both plant and fruit and "provincing" or placing new branches from the plants in vacant spaces with their extremities rising.outof the earth, 1 give full and continuous employment to large numbers of the peasantry. : In October, immediately after the vintage, the poles are removed fro'jn' the vines, the ground is weeded in Nb- vember and in this month and through December old stalks are removed, new vines are planted and new shoots are layered in the vacant spaces. In January and February the first pruning is made and this is one of the most ira-. poi'tant operations in the vineyard, as upon it alone tho success of the vintage often depends. Usually the pruner leaves on the stock two branches only, termed broches or pousses, and, naturally, the strongest shoots are left. In the young wood of black grape vines three buds,are left to each shoot; in tho white one shoot only with four buds'is left. The Vino is pruned above the third bud or "eye" of each shoot and care is taken to insure that the cut itself shall not incline toward the bud lost the sap in rising should descend upon the bud and cause it to rot. Digging and hoeing follow in March and April; hi -Mry' "provining" is again done whore net'eS«ary and a polo is fixed to every vine in tho vineyard; tho second weeding and second pruning arc made in June, and tho vines are tied to the polos by straw bands; in July the third weeding and third hoeing ' take place; in August generally the vineyards are not interfered with, but every preparation is made for the coming vintage; in September a final but alight pruning is done whore requisite and from the middle of the month to the first or second week in October the vintage is in full activity. For every two and one-half acres of land the large number of 62,600 poles must be fixed with the vines, the value of which is $760. lie Couldn't Get Away.

Tb.e operation of taming -wild elephants is in its nature an elaborate confidence game as it is practiced by the Siamese. They make use of a walled inclo(t;re in which the savage monster is belt captive and three or four tame elephants for the moral effect these latter rogues will have on the wild beast. Once preparations are complete and the work of subduing the animal is ready to advance each of his feet is lassoed with, long ropes and these are tield, if necessary, by the tamed elephants, .-who drag the poor beast between the two rows of piles. His terrible trunk cannot be fastened in any •way, but each foot is firmly tied to a post, whereupon the men themselves retire from the corral, leaving two or three of the most trustworthy elephants within the stockade to torment tho captive. These now, obedient to orders which they receive from their masters, proceed to lash the captive elephant with their trunks,, while tho poor thing IB powerless to retaliate. After this tormenting has been, carried on for some time the Siamese who is in futui'e to act as keeper to this elephant comes into the corral and drives the tormentors away. The man now brings buckets of cold water and throws them upon tho animal's heated sides, speaks to him kindly and brings him bundles of grass. He even stroTves the rough legs, taking care, however, to keep well out of reach of the terriblR proboscis. Tho man now retires and the tormentors are ordered to return. Again they lash the captive into a frenzy and again the keeper drives them away,pets and cools the animal. This process is continued for a greater or Joss number of times, according to the disposition of the animal, who finally reasons with himself and arrives at the conclusion that this man is his friend, while to the other elephants, his tormentors, be apparently attributes all tho woes and ills which have recently befallen him. He finally becomes friendly with the man, his protector, and is thereafter obedient aud affectionate.

The shrill outcry o£ a child, the slamming of a door, the rattling o£ a vehicle over uneven pavement and other trifling disturbances affect weak nerves—sensitive nerves, sorely. Nervousness is largely attributable to dyspepsia and non-assimilation of the food, a very usual concomitant of sleeplessness. Digestion and assimilation renewed by Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, soon .boset nerve quietude and sound repose.
