BBS M01K1S! ALflOKA IOWA. WE 189*. CHAPTEU XII.—(Continued.) . The silversmith, who had come over with Molier, called upon him; said he had been shown' the medal and chain and positively identified it as his own lettering in the engraving, and by his private mark. That night Molier was called upon by Colburn, the '. claimant's attorney, and invited to come to the lawyer's office. On reach- Ing there he was treated with "distinguished consideration," and another contest of craft and cunning was begun. "You reside at Cincinnati, I believe, Mr. Molier?" [Smithers, the claimant, had seen Molier and told tho attorney who he was and what kind of a reputation he bore at home.] "I reside at Cincinnati," replied Molier. "You are aware, Mr. Molier, that there is no impropriety in telling us— you have been subpoenaed on the claimant's part, I believe?" "Yes." "In telling us what your testimony will be? Such is the fact." "What do you wish it to be?" asked Molier. Colburn was stumped. He had been iold that Molier was mercenary; but he was not quite sure whether this was «n offer to sell his testimony or merely , x the honest inquiry of an honest man. At length he said: "What do you know about our case, Mr. Molier? What do you know in' our favor?" "Not much, anyway, if anything. How am I to know what is in your favor?" "Well—first we wish to prove the identity of a certain medal. But of course you know nothing about that." "What about the medal?" "My client, Joseph Blake, wore a medal-from his childhood, which-cuts a big figure in the case. We want to identify that." < "Did he have it with him in England?" "Yes; always wore it on his neck- never been without it, and has it yet." •'I know nothing about that medal." "What does the defense want of you?" "I don't know exactly." "You have talked with Clayton? Clayton is attorney for Sam Blake." "Yes. Shall I tell him all that has passed between you and me?" "I rather think that wouldn't be proper. Did he say he should use your testimony?" "Said he would see about it." "Did you ever know a man named fimithers?" "Where?" i "At Cincinnati." | "I think not. Who is Smithers?" "At Cincinnati; sorry you,,.do not know him." "I'm sorry too, if it would help Joe Blake." "You believe Joe Blake's no fraud?'. I "I know he is not," replied Molier "Very good. I think we shall call you at a venture, Mr. Molier. You appear to have been candid and to have no bias in this matter, and I thank you." Molier went out, walked straight across the square beyond the court house and called again upon Clayton. "I have just talked with the opposite counsel, Mr, Clayton," said he, "and, if I am not meddling, I think you might well subpoena John Drake of Cincinnati, keeper of the Third street hotel." "Thank you, Mr, Molier; why?" "He probably knows this claimant," "Learn that of Colburn?" "I intimated to Colburn that it would not be proper for me to tell him what passed between you and me, and I did not." "I see," said Clayton; "that was correct, Mr. Molier. Trial comes Tuesday, and there is barely time to get the Cincinnati man here. I will send a special officer for him. Very much •obliged, Mr. Molier, Any other suggestion?" "I think not." I And that ended the conference. At the Gray Sulphur the very slaves l\ad caught the spirit of conten* "tion over the pretended Joe, Not one of them had known while he was .a.t the hotel that he claimed to be Joseph Blake, the long lost "Little ,Joe." Yet several pf the older ones ROW .declared that they saw him and knew him on sigjit. "Old Mammy," the black woman who had been "Little Joe's" special nurse, and had loved WHS dearly and wept for his loss, was Hot one of these. She scouted the idea and declared him a cheat and a "defaulter." "He's no mo' my Little Joe," said Mammy, "dan i'e John de Baptis,'." jfaipmy was verv devout,in her way, apfl had not only often heard negro preaching W -W-younger days, but *ke kq4 frequently gone to "de white folks' weeti^V And, on authority, she in a wordy contest; "s'pose Little Joe's nose gvvine to turn up? Dis man got little finger gone." [No one else had observed that fact.] "S'pose Little Joe gwine to have little finger gone? I 'spec't when he come back little finger come back too. 'Taint Little Joe: Ole Mammy knows." "Dar you goes 'gin," said \Vlnny,the laundress. Mammy knows it all, and nobody but Mammy knows nuthin." " 'Taint Joel" said Mammy. "Why Mammy, da says Old Jedge Crane knows him, an' 'tis Joe." '"Taint Joel" "An' Judge Crane '11 swar to it." '"Taint Joe!" "An' good many mo' swar to it." "'Taint Joe!" "Mammy knows mo'rn'all do res'." " 'Taint Joe; 'taint; I knows 'taint." And, in a manner quite as logical as this of Wlnny and Old Mammy, the argument went round among the old colored people—especially the women. Among the men, there was more reserve, but no less interest. They did not know how soon .the new-comer might take control and wield the lash, and they were more anxious to be on the winning side than to be right— which was also true of many with whiter faces. And so the interest deepened among all parties as the day of the trial approached. CHAPTER XZXT. A NOTABLE DEATH-BED! AN EPITAPH FOB TWO! ADOLF AND VIVKTTE. HILE ALL .WAS xecitement at Gray Sulphur Springs over the approaching trial which was to decide the ownership of that estate, a t Cincin- n a t i there was passing a scene where a dear human life was ebbing quietly away from the companionship of husband and friends. Mary Gust was dying. A week before, she had observed just above that graceful curvature which divides the neck from the chest a small throbbing tumor. It was painless, and at first gave no alarm. It grew rapidly and throbbed more violently; and, from mere precaution, Dr. lioss was called. He pronounced it aneurism — a bursting of the internal coats of an artery and escape of the blood into the external coat. "Specifically," he said, "it was subclavian aneurism, affecting the great branch of the largest artery, and coming out from under the 'collar bone.'' "Is it dangerous?" asked Mary Gust. "It is incurable — too close to the heart and too inaccessible to tie, and too large for successful treatment by other modes," "Then I nmst die, doctor?" "Yes, sooner or later. You had better know the truth." "I thank you for the truth, doctor." "What shall we do?" inquired her beloved husband. "Avoid all excitement; eat sparingly, and little meat; make no avoidable exertion. It is beyond medicine; . she needs none," "Thank you, doctor. Please call often. It is a comfort to have you present." Aunt Ruthy was sent for. She was horrified. Mary Gust put out her hand, took that of Aunt Ruthy, and with a smile of calm resignation said: "I am going home!" The big tears dropped from Aunt Ruthy's eyes as she replied: "Why, Mary!" "Dr. Ross says a large artery is broken, and nothing can be done." This was said without alarm, and with an expression of countenance which fairly shone. Aunt Ruthy examined the tusnov with much interest and tenderness. It was throbbing rhythmically . with the heart. The surface above it was slightly livid and very tense. Finding that Mrs. Gust did not suffer, Aunt Ruthy sgid: "flow pan that kill?" Mr. Gust— speaking for his wife— explained. The doctor had shown him how the strong and muscular poat of the artery wa,s torn open, letting the blood into the sack formed by the yielding external coat of the artery. "This will grow larger ajjd larger until it intrudes upon tbe breatWeg 1 g,p. pavers and produces eufosaito^s w it w|ll ouret toto. the W notir," feaid Mrs. Gust. "Listen!" The aneurism was throbbitig audibly, With a suppressed murmuring sough. "Maty, are you ready to die?" said Attht Rulhy, in a regular camp-meeting tone. "1 would rather remain; but my life has been a happy one, 1 ' (taking her husband's hand fervently), "and I will not murmur." "Have you made any'preparation?" "The jovtriiey is not a long one, Aunty," (pretending pleasantly to mis-' understand Aunt Ruthy), "1 take nothing tvith me." Aunt Ituthy almost said, "you may take your sins with you,"—but she had not the heart to do it—Seeing the almost glowing face of Mary Oust. That face—always lighted With benignity, appeared now radiant with love and resignation. Aunt Ruthy abandoned the part of confessor, but asked Mrs. Oust if she would see Father Burky. "Oh, most gladly. Please send for him, Aunty." And there came stillness so profound that the throb, throb, throb of the aneurism could be heard distinctly. Next day, by request of. Mrs. Gust, her adopted son brought Vivette. Vivette was almost born a nurse. She had that peculiar womanly gift of feeling another's woe to the bottom of her sympathetic heart without thereby being rendered useless as a nurse. She sometimes appeared to have a sixth sense, knowing the wants" of others without the necessity of words. Mrs 1 Gust was able to sit up most of the time; though the aneurism was last becoming a great throbbing lump at her throat, and interfering witV. respiration. This caused her to bear her head to one side and her wearisome, whether sitting or lying. Vivette .knew intuitively just how to place the pillows. Her touch was gentle and naturally skillful. f?)he came now every day, and Mrs. Gust r.nxiously waited her coming. On the day when Father Burky, the minister, came, he sat some Ume near Mrs. Gust without saying anything but a few words of recognition. Seeing how quietly Vivette went about caring for every little want of the doomed woman, the preacher said: "This good girl has her excellencies from her mother—I knew her well." Vivette, hearing this, said: "Not more than from my father whom you do not know so well. He is a loving father, Mr. Burky." "To them who love much, much shall be forgiven," said the preacher. Then, suspecting he had unwittingly wounded the feelings of Vivette, he said: "But we all of tis need to bo forgiven. How are your hopes, Mary?" (To Mrs. Gust.) The expanding aneurism throbbed with increased heart-beats as she replied: "I thank the heavenly Father that I have lived, and that I am ready to die." "Have you ever been baptized, Mary?" "I think not. AVhenlwas young I lived where there was not much water; and while Joseph" (her husband) "and I have been husband and wife we have not thought it necessary." "Are you willing to be baptized?" "Do you mean sprinkled?" ' 'Baptized by sprinkling—yes—your husband would not object?" "Joseph nor I never object to what one of us desires. That is his foot upon the stair. He is never out many minutes." v When Mr. Gust came in, the preacher told him his proposition that Mary should be baptized, and asked his approval. "Sprinkled," said Mrs. Gust -with an explanatory glance •"Certainly, Mr. Burky, if you desire to do so, and she does not object. A sprinkle will do no harm." Whether this sentence meant contempt, or only carelessness about religious observances, or a reference to (TO JJE CONTINUED.) He Made His IJ ...unit. There is more or less humbug about the traditional slowness of the messenger boy. At least, there is one of thorn in Kansas City who is abreast ,of the age in which he lives. This uniformed urchin keeps an account in one of tho banks, and it is growing rapidly,, itm The other day he went in to deposit 50 cents. The teller, ^yith more than his customary haughtiness, informed the boy that deposits of less than $1 could not be received by the bank. The youngster wasted not a Word in argument, but quietly walked to a desk, wrote a check f6r $1 and 'presented the same at the wincTow of the paying teller. The check was honored, of course. Then the carriet of messages revisited the receiving teller. "I'd like to deposit $1.50, if you please," he said, The deposit was. accepted, and the receiving teller was very much chagrined. .' , ? A. Msilne «e«nlt. .A Waterville hermit gets well down to the limit of subsistence, for he lives on mush and molasses almost exclusively, He cooks his mush in a, big kettle and his method is the beau ideal of simplicity, Gradually layers of mush harden and stick to the kettle's sides. Succeeding accretions at last ne&riy fill the cavity and then the hermit has a festal day of purification. He cants the kettle over a fire and "burps her out" Th.en we're ready for mpro of the dietary mush. China Hermit God« dard also cooked all pf his curious com" pounds jn a kettle, but he kept it passably clean. The China hermit, however, wore no pants unless on strictly dress occasions, and therefore stands the unique and unapproachable even by the Waterville misanthrope of mush,, molasses and mood A Cure tor Take twelve ounces of pound .of resolution, two grains of common sense, two ounces pf ex. pevience, a large sprig, pf Time, end three quarts pi coping water qf .Consolation, ,&et oft «f Trtfi 8dt«BSr*i« in Cycllhw on the Enftli.Mi ttfiiinte the Plt-lMR dl n CitMnott— Cooking lir Electricity— A \Vonitet>« fttl Mr George Plnkcrt, the water cyclist, is the last candidate for sensational notice. He has a curious. tricycle with which he can roll through eftliri sea much, as the cyclist rolls over the asphalted pavements of n city. The tricycle is described ns "a weird ma^ chine of his own invention," and to give some Idea of what It Is like, n picture of It is published herewith. Look nt it well, and s.iy were not a bold idea of Pinkert to attempt to roll It over tho stormy channel separating Franco from "perfidious Albion." Everybody who has been there knows what n nasty, choppy, ugly sea that Channel can be when it makes up its mind to be so. At its best it Is disagreeable. Well, Pinkert attempted to roll over It tho last days of the last month, and got enough of it. He started from Capo Grlscnz, near Gala's, intending to roll over to Folkestone, in England, and he would have done so only' for his stomach, which gave out. Seasickness overcame him, and he was obliged to abandon the attempt. This Is what nn English newspaper has to say about Pinkert's perilous feat: "We are 'gratified to learn, as we go to press, that Air, George Pinkert, the water cyclist, who started to cross tlie Channel on a wlerd machine of his own invention, has not gone to the bottom after all. But Mr Pinkert had a trying experience, and after setting boldly forth from Capo G'rlSncz, ended his jaunt—not at Folkestone, as ho had hoped—but at Boulogne. When met by a fishing smack in mid-channel Mr. Pinkert presented a woe-begone appearance Indeed. He was very seasick to begin with, and too ill to make any fight against a rising wind. It is said he proposes to try again—a good advertisement for his pluck, perhaps, but none for his judgment. We hope he will think better of it." To Imitate the Firing; of Cannon. An excellent imitation of t.he firing of cannon, including the sharp detonation, the rapid whizzing of the ball, and even the phenomenon of the subso quont backward movement of a piece of artillery, may be produced by tho simple experiment hero Illustrated. Take nn ordinary : thick glass bottle and let it be one-third full of water. Dissolve in-'tho water a small quantity of bicarbonate of soda, such as is sold in little packages to make seltzer water. Place the contents of a similar package containing turttu'lq uckl in a playing-card rolledi up In the shape of a cyllr.der, and haying one end stuffed with blotting paper. Suspend this improvised cartridge from the cork of the bottle by means of a JMU to which a string bus been attached. The open end of tho tube; should be uppermost Tightly cork the bottle after having so regulated the string that Iho bottom of the tube docs not Tom:!) tho liquid. The piece being loaded it now only romnlns to set it off. It milFiees for this to place the bottle horizontally on two pencils laid parallel to onu another on the table, and which represents the- gun-carriage. The water la the bottle penetrates tho tube dissolves the tiirtarlc acid, and generates an amount of carbonic 'acid gas, which drives out tho coi-lc with a violent explosion, while with a reactionary movement the bottle rolls buck on the pencils Imitating ?nore or less tho rumbling of a retreating piece of artillery, ; A Wonderful I-.Ij.flit. The Idea of an electric light which, fed by a current from a dynamo actuated by a forty horse-power engine, and giving 7,000 candle power, can have Us illuminating power Jnteusi^ lied inore than 83,000 times, Is not easy to grasp, It means the projector of a stream of light of about 230,000,000 candle power, and It is no wonder that the announcement that such a light Is about to be \ised in this country has been received with somo Incredulity In Europe, " Yet this is the cftlficniy of tho light which will bo shortly erected at Five Island, for the Illumination of the adjacent coast, and tho protection of the fleet of ships entering Ne\v York harbor.

Swnntilnc nn tut AtttUcptie. Df. Procnccl gives tlie results of hts numerous investigations on the bactericidal action of sunshine on the microbes normally present in drain Water. When-glass vessels were exposed to tho perpendicular as Well as the oblique rays of the BUU, the bactericidal power of isolation was unimpaired at the bottom of the vessel, a depth of only half a meter, but when the perpendicular rays only were admitted no diminuatlon took place in the number of bacteria present at this distance from the surface. A further proof of tlie destructive effect of the oblique rays on the micro-organisms was afforded by as peclal bacterial examination of portions of the liquid in tlie immediate vicinity of tlie sides of tlie cylinder. When the cylinders were freely exposed to sunshine the smallest number of microbes was found In. those parts of the liquid which was nearest to the walls of tho vessel.. Dr. Proeaccl's experiments established, the interesting fact tthat tho bacterial purification which tnlccs place during a river's course inny, in ninny cases, where the rate of How Is presumably too great to admit of sedimentation taking place, he attributed directly to tho destructive action of sunshine on the? suspended microbes. Ait Electric Fire-Damp Detector. An electrical fire damp flctector has been devised for use in coal mines. The Instrument consists of two identically similar spirals of fine platinum wire-, one .of which Is Inclosed In an air-tight tube-containing air and having the upper- end' glazed, while.tlie other is contained' by a wire-gauze tube of similar size; which Is also glazed at its upper eudV botlii tubes being arranged vertically. The use of the instrument is bused on tlie fact that a spiral of platinum wire 1 that has been heated to redness burns more Intensely. Avhen it is plunged into a vessel containing air mixed with: inflammable gus. When a current of electricity is passed through both spiral!* fn air, they glow with equal brilliance',, but when the Instrument is introduced into an atmosphere charged' withi Inflammable gas, the •\vlre-gfiuao 1 tube 1 glows the more brightly, the brilliancy being proportional to the amount of Inflammable gas present. An arrangement is also provided by which 1 it is possible to easily calculate the' actual percentage of dangerous; go* present. The- Ilnttery. A well-known authority points out that in the best forms; of accumulators but (i fractional part of the material employed in its construction is really active; therefore, tile storage cell, aa made at present, whilo actually of great, and daily increasing 1 service, is relatively a most Inelllcleiit apparatus. " An ap cciablo increase In lls efficiency would have- a remarkable effect on railroad operations, Leaving out of tho question all possible improve meats- of ni mechanical nature, which may tend toward tho reduction of first cost, greater stability of plates and cells, higher rates of charge and discharge (all points of great Importance in a traction coll) there still remains ' a splendid field for Improvement In traction accumulators. As showing tho possibilities of the future development of the storage battery, it is computed i\e within the region of probability, that a cell from which a return of only, say four ampere hours per pound 'can- now bo derived, may be made to have double, four times, and even ton times Its pmsent capacity. Novel Sluulea. An English, electrical' firm is introducing some striking novelties In electric lamp snades. These shades are made of a specially selected description of natural -feathers, dyed in choice tints, and arranged" in artistic shapes and combinations of color. Among other biuuitiful designs of shades for floor !in<l table lamps are the representations of various kinds of flowers mrtdo separately -iincT grouped together on skeleton frames. Tho result Is an aitlro departure- from tho hackneyed stylo of silk and hico shades now in vogue. Tho general construction of tho shades is protected by a patemi, and every design is registered. It is a. noteworthy fact that: the designer of nearly all tho patterns is n young woman, who derives an excellent in- eoino from' her work. Tlie Infection of AVouiirtert I'evnans By Hulluts. Happily, a purposely infected shot is provided against by International compact, whk'h forbids, tho use of poisonous and explosive bullets, but there is Jio doubt that serious contagion Is somotlmes cur-vied undesigned* ly Into the body of the person struck by a projectile. In Messner's ro- soaches in this Held, he experimented with bullets purposely infected with micro-organisms. These wove discharged at tin boxes filled with sterilized gelatine teptono, and the clianiels made- by 'tire shot were examlud.

To'each of these poata aa inclined strut v*a» attached itt ft transverse vertical plane, presenting a surface for the top of a hydraulic jack to* act upon. Eight special 100-ton, jacks were used, with an eight-inch stroke and a working 1 pressure of 400 atmospheres, the piston being nearly 0.7 in diameter. The fluid used was a mixture Of water, alcohol and glycerine. Sixteen men operated the jacks,. their movements boing synchronized, by a code of signals designed to secure uniformity of motion. The- 1 bridge was raised iv foot or two by short lifts, followed by thoroughly' blocking, and then* building under^ one course of cut stone 1 masonry/ The total load was 646 tons, and the- maximum load.on.a single jack wa» „','» eighty-seven tons.

Tho weight of trains ' was rigidly restricted duning .the''-'v time the bridge was undergoing repairs, and their speed was limited to three miles an hour in crossing the bridge. In addition, a special block: system was organized upon that see- ' tion of the lino upon which the bridge is located, so that operations-" could be suspended and the track re- • stored five minutes before the arrival of a train at the site. A Faithful Servant. Kostopchm was tho governor trt- Moscow who probably planned* the burning of that city, and so puts- serious check to Napoleon's careeiv One day tho Emperor Taut returned from parade greatly irritated because he considered the cloth furnished for the soldiers' uniforms- te bo of very bad quality. He ordered. Eostopcbin to write at once, and desire that the cloth should every year- be procured from England. The count replied that to do so would end tho Russian cloth manufacture and ruin all the Russian merchants. As the emperor insisted, ho wrote, the- letter and gave it to him to sign. After the signature ho added, in. his own hand: "Do nothing of tho kind!. he is crazy." Paul evidently observed thut ho was writing something, and Itostopohin quietly handed him the letter. Paul was walking up and down the room. He turned pale, still strode violently back and forth, and 'then suddenly threw the letter into the fire.
