''but whnt caused your hnir to turn so white? tt can not be age, for if 1 ain ft judge, you are not over 40." ^Tho major laughed. "Ko. 1 was 40 on my last birthday^ and my hah' has been its presrtit shade for the last ten years." / "Come, major, I'm sure there is a story here. Let's hare it." Again the major smiled, but this time a perceptible tremor shook his frame. "1 never like, to think of that time," he said. "But bo it as you will. Have ft fresh cignr; you will need it to strengthen your nerves, I'm very sure." "When I was 30 years old I was employed by Uncle Sam to scour the country' for moonshiners. My territory lay mostly in the Southern states. It was iu 1881 that. I received an order from the chief of the division to go into the Tennessee region nnd locate several stills that were running out. kegs of illicit liquor near kittle Tucksie. I was of a light-hen rted, dare-devil disposition. and usually such sin order would hnve spurred me to my best; but on this September morning, when, leaving civilization behind, 1 struck Ilie trail loading up the side of the Little Tuck- sic, a strange feeling of foreboding came over me. The birds twittered above my head, and the purling brook rippled beneath my feet. All nature. was at her best, and yet a feeling of indescribable dread oppressed me. "On I stumbled, deep in my gloomy meditations, when suddenly 1 nearly fell over a girl, clad in a single calico garment, who was kneeling beside a huwborry bush filling a pail with the fruit. The surprise was mutual and she started up like a frightened fawn. Without disparagement of the sex I can safely say that no plainer women oxlst on the continent than the average female moonshiner. As the girl turn- oil. however, she displayed a face in pleasing contrast with the characteristic liigh cheek bones and 'ague' complexion of that section. Her oval features. brown as a berry, but regular in outline, set off by a pair of ruby lips and jet black eyes, would compare fa- vovably with those of any fashionable belle. " 'Wha 1 be yon un a-goin'V she asked with a startled air. " Tin an artist,' I replied, 'come to sketch some bits of scenery. I am looking for Jerry Bowman.' " 'Wha' you want wi' him?' " 'I am going to board at his house.' " 'Huh! Then you nu wants Ole Hoss?' "I was uncertain, but nodded. By this time I had drawn a pad from my pocket and began making hurried marks on it. The girl peered over my shoulder and asked : " 'How long be you a-goin' ter stay?' " 'Just over night,' I replied. •"She gazed at the scrawl and said: *' 'Wall, I guess you un can come on.' "Up the tortuous path, twisting now to the right and now to the left, we went, till suddenly the girl pushed aside the thick undergrowth and darted along a trail leading directly into the beart of the forest. I said not a word, but did considerable thinking, as now and then a protruding hawberry briar tore its way into my flesh, or a stiff twig, bent forward by my guide, with a 'zip* flew back, striking me across the face. Suddenly I heard a low howling shriek. The girl gave a low, peculiar whistle, and the next instant four large curs were pawing at. her feet, and in a most uncomfortable manner sniffing at my heels. ' 'This is pap,' the girl whispered. 'This is Ole Hoss, the man you uu us a-lookin" fur.' "Whence he came and how he got there I was never able to explain to myself; but there ho was, armed to the teeth, a large hunting knife in his belt, a shotgun on Ills shoulder, and the mountaineer's grin on his face. " Wha' do you un wautV he demanded. " 'I am an artist, 1 I replied, 'and Jim Bludsoe, whom I met In the village, thought I could get board with you for a day or so.' " 'Jim's friends are mine,' ho said, •yvith a sidelong glance. 'Come on.' "This was much easier than I had •expected. Jerry, or 'Ole Hoss' was none other than the man I was after. "As we emerged from the wood into the clearing, a lank, slab-sided speci- man of humanity approached; ho was about to speak to Jerry when his eyes fell upon me, and 'he suddenly turned snvfi.v. Th.ere was something familiar In his features, but I could not place ' " " 'Ole Hoss' passed on and I followed him into his cabin. It was a small affair, with two rooms. " 'One we uns lives in,' he explained, 'on- tho wimmen sleeps in t'other.' " 'Where do the men sleep?' I Inquired, " 'Oh, we uns bniik down tliar Jn ther cornei'.' "The 'vvtmmen folks' retired early , (hat wight, nnd I sought rest on a blanket that had evidently seen several summers and innumerable hard frosts. I was vervv tired, and though I Intended to rise when all was quiet and take a view of the premises. I fell asleep.

I was highly elated at. this oversight, and lay, endeavoring to muster strength to break my bonds, when I heard a rustling, gliding sound In one corner of the room. Could It bo that some other Intrnan creature was Imprisoned with me? No, it must be the wind outside. Then from the long, dark opening, used as a fire-place, came a similar sound, another and another. What was It? What could this mean. "Suddenly I felt something glide across my logs n.s they lay bound on tile foot of the bed, and the awful horror of the situation that my persecutors had devised dawned on me. I was in a den of snakes? If I moved I was a dead man. Sick with terror, I became unconscious. "I awoke Tying beside the road.

According to a reliable and well- known New York dealer iu sporting goods, a large percentage of .the young men who have taken to cycling pad their logs, and also adopt equally radical measures in broadening their shoulders. Such a demand has sprung up for padded legs in New York that the pads find a ready sale at $0 a pair. They are now part of the stock In every first-class sporting goods store. These pads are made of the finest grade of cotton, and arc stuffed with lamb's wool to any thickness required. The dealer said to an Evening Sun reporter. "You would be surprised to see the men who buy these things. They are always young fellows, from 20 to .'50' years of age and are novices in cyc> ling.

They dress plainly, and frequently have delightfully fresh and original jnatt- ners and ways of doing things. But you must acknowledge that even to a clergyman who has read the service over hundreds of trembling couples, it i<i rather startling to havo the bridegroom at the most solemn part tako out his Waterbury watch and begin to wind it up in tho most methodical way imaginable. But that is just what happened here last; week. I was reading tho formal charge to tho man and woman, and reading it in a way that I considered most impressive and awo-inspiring. "The bridogroom, who was a big lumbering follow, followed me for a time with considerable interest. Then ho suddenly took out his w'atch and began to wind it. I lot him go on for a fow seconds and then I realized that it was a Waterbury, and might last all tho rest of tho ceremony. So I stopped short and looked severely at the man.

Tho clergyman sighed as ho thought, of his trials. '-Then a pair from the country^ came horo last night—a couple of bumpkins, green, clumsy and good-natured. When I said, 'The man and woman may join hands,' meaning, of course, they were to join right hands, they simply clasped hands-'ds they stood side by side, and swung them back and forth like a couple'of little schoolgirls. " 'Eight hands!' I said in a low voice, but .with considerable emphasis. 'Oh, yes, of course,' said the youth with a blush, and he.seized his bride's hand and shook it most cor- "dially. .,... "As I-said before. I consider myself one of the most dignified clergymen in. the city, but I am slowly breaking down under tho strain of keeping my face duly solemn at such moments as those."

One hundred dollars was thus raised, and the ship was headed for the distant trading post of Fort St. Michaels, where the entire sum was invested for hardtack. With this Supply •• of .'food the Bear returned, us fast as steam nnd sail would carry her, to the starving people who had called upon her blg«heartcd crew to aid them. Captain Healy's report of this destitution, and of the many similar cases that lie encountered during that cruise, caused tho authorities at Washington to investigate into the condition of these most northern wards of the nation, and devise measures for their relief. It was finally decided to import and domesticate reindeer from SI- bctin, as these animals could be protected from hunters, and would at least, assure the natives a supply of rood and clothing. I was placed in charge of the reindeer experiment station or ranch at Port Clarence, not far from Point Barrow, where 1 have now been for nearly two years, and whore the complete success of the undertaking bus been demonstrated.

Among the Mclaflchthon mementos in Germany is shown a citrlmlsly shaped timepiece,' which the great reformer used as a watch and also as a table clock in his study. The Watch was presented to him by an admirer during the Diet nt Augsburg. Nothing more unique exists in this line. It is ball-shnped and four and one-half inches in diameter. The three little gold feet, attached to the lower half of tho caso served as pedestals when it was used as a "standuhr" on Melanchlhon's table. t There was no glass to protect the dial and the movement is entirely of iron. It is plain and coarse—four small wheels, a spiral spring turning to tho left, and only one hand to hours. Tho cnse itself is heavily gold- plated and tastefully engraved.

Upwards of 1,100 years before Christ the Chinese were a people ruled by a dynasty of kings, but there is no authentic history of them prior 'to tho Chow dynasty. The "Celestial /empire" has in its time borne many odd names, for it was formerly the custom to change the name of tho country every time a new dynasty gained control of gov- •ornmental affairs. Thus in . the ancient writings we find it referred to as Hai-que, Cham-quo, Han-que, etc., according to the name of tho ruling monarch. Tho true name according to oriental scholars, is Chum-que, which means "the ceiitei kingdom of the wond." The early European explorers, especially the Portuguese, corrupted '-Chum-quo" into "Chin-que" and from this word later navigators "evoluted" the word "China." The Author of "The Bolls," The minister who officiated at the funeral of Edgar Allen Poe, the poet, is still living. Poe is buried in the old Westminster churchyard, at tho corner of Fayotte and Green streets, in Baltimore, and of the people who witnessed tho burial in October, 1849, only three are still living, among' whom is the officiating 1 clergyman, Hev.

It Is mildly amusing, but would hardly he worth reproducing, perhaps, were it not for the fact that it n ay help here and there a. reader to avoid a particularly vulgar solecism. The young man, it should be premised, is very loquacious. He lately made the acquaintance cf a young lady from Boston, to whom he proceeded to pour out a long slory of some adventure iu which lie had played the hero. His listener was as much surprised as he could have wished. "Did you really do that?" she asked. "I done it," answered, the proud young man, and he began forthwith upon another long narrative, more startling even than the first. The Boston woman again expressed her polite surprise. "Yes," said the fellow, with an inflation of the chest, "that's what I done." A third story followed, with another "I done It," and then tho Boston girt remarked: "Do you know, you remind me so strongly of Banquo's ghost?" "Yon mean the ghost in Shakespeare's play?" "Yes." "And why?" "Why, don't you remember that Macbeth said to him, 'Thou canst not say I did it?' " The young man couldn't imagine why everybody laughed, but probably he has found out before this time. be plainly seen, inside tho case tho following inscription is found- Phil: Mela: Gott: allcin: die: Khr: 1530. (Philip Melandithon, to God alone all honor. 1530.) This is perhaps one of the tirst timepieces intended 1o bo carried on the person. In the beginning of the sixteenth century the first watches were made. The inventor. Peter ITenleiu, died Nov. 10, 1542. The watches were then nicknamed Nuernbergcr eier (Nuernberg eggs.) Specimens of these aro now so scarce and valuable that at an auction of antiquities in Paris a watch made by Peter Heulciu brought lti,400 francs. , A London Fox Hunt. Last summer between 8 and 4 o'clock in the morning, as a London policeman was going on his rounds, he spied a fox in Gordon square, where no fox should be. As the animal's movements seemed suspicious he determined to f arrest it. Before taking It to tho nearest police station, however, he had first to catch his fox; and in this chase Reynard made a bid for liberty by rushing away as fast as ho could, The chase was joined in by a couple of postman and two gentlemen returning homo from a dance. After a sharp run the fox sought the shelter of an area cellar, where it was captured after biting the policeman's hand. As its owner coiiM not bo found, the creature was sent to the Zoological Gardens in Regent's Park. Tnll (Jlrl* nnd'Short. ' . Opinion has always been very much divided upon the subject of women's height. The novelist and designers of fashion plates incline to the view that tho female form divine should be somewhat of the altitude of a life- guardsman. Tall women have unquestionably been in the ascendant in more senses than one of late. It has been expected of us to be very much nearer six feet than five, and we.have very successfully contrived to fulfill this expectation. Notwithstanding, there is a great deal to be said on the other side. There are those who will declare that there is more fascination, more charm, more vivacity about a little woman. She is, they will say, more energetic, and beside her the average young man does not feel the drawbacks of early and incessant cigarette smoking and the degeneracy of his sex; she can coax and pout and flounce into pretty little passions with greater grace than a "daughter of the gods," she needs a protecting arm in a crowd, and she does not tako up so much room In a railway carriage, or dwarf her partners in the ball room. There was never yet a little woman who could not command attention and flirt five times as furiously as a tall one, and no amount of height ever produced more dignity than a small woman can assume on occasion. It is, of course^ by comparison that everything is thus and thus, and so it is only when judged by the standard of some exceptionally tall sister that a short, woman will permit herself to be so described. She will always indignantly disclaim a brevity of inches under any circumstances, though no woman ever yet objected to the epithet, "little woman" used as a term of affect inn. —Lady's Pictorial. tvhch the i,l**i- Kcprltntthds tW For our neglect c-f H by ififUctittft upofl ns sick headache, by dyeing the skin ydloW, coating the tongue with fur, producing vertigo, pains in the right side and wunng the breath, *e are' little less thaa lunatics if we disregard the chastisament.

There are many interesting stories told of tho buildings iu the Inner Temple,, the chief quarters of the London lawyers. On one houso which was destroyed by the great tiro of 1888. there was a sun-dial whose motto was praised by Charles Lamb for its "strange heart language." Its language was certainly strange, though whether it stirred the hearts or not may be doubted, for it read simply, "Begone about your business," This curious inscription is said by Mr. Loftie to have arisen in this way: The workman who was setting up tho dial asked the treasurer of tb«, Templu for a motto, and tho latter, tWtoklng the man was joking, replied l jt thp words of the inscription. On his part, the workman, taking the treasurer seriously, wrote the motto, "Begono about your business," which remained as long as the dial lusted. Ti*lc(?i.'iiitU Poles. Due of the latest uses to which paper has be;ou turned Is tho making of telegraph poles. The paper pulp employed is saturated with a mixture ot borax tallow, and other substances. The mass is cast in a mold, with a cone in the center, forming a hollow rod of any desired length, the cross pieces being held by wooden keys driven in on either side of the pole, The paper poles are said to be lighter and stronger than those of wood, and to bo unaffected by tho many weather influences which shorten the life of a wooden pole. It is doubtful, however, whether the paper poles will come to be anything like a rival to the iron polo, which is now high in favor for the carrying of all kinds of wire lines. The value of iron telegraph poles has been well tested under the most trying conditions on the line between Europe and India, and again across arid stretches of country in Australia. Insects that eat out of tho core of everything in tho shape of wood, leaving the shell only, and bird borers that drill holes in the toughest of trees, let the iron pole pass and even wandering tribes can not chop it up for lire wood, although down in Australia they have not yet quite gotten over the trick of making arrow heads of the Insulators that It carries. llarly adapted.
