LOVE'S BACE, ; ''But surely they left some address?' "Not as I know on." The. caretaker at No. 19, Westphalia fecface, leaned on the broom which she had brought up to help her to answer the door and looked at me with dtefavor. , "Do you think the landlord knows?" i No answer. i "I took out a half-crown. "Look here!" I said, "this coin shall lie yours if you'll tell rue how long you've been here, who the landlord is, and anything you might have heard from the tradespeople about the family." "I never gossip with the tradesfolk, nor nobody," was her dispiriting reply; bill she gave mo the address of a tirm in Gray's Inu and shut the door with all possible speed, leaving mo on the dusty doorstep. Imagine the situation. A young man goes away t» Switzerland to 'the. bedside of his dying father, and comes back on the wings of the wind to lay WB newly-acquired fortune at the feet of the dearest girl in the world, and finds her gone— hopelessly, utterly gone — licr house desolate, no flowers in the windows, no furniture in the place, "To Let" staring from every window. I had only known Clara three months. I knew not a single one of her friends — I knew she had some few relations— her mother's family— but I did not even '.know their name., The Vanes knew no one in Kensington, and they only knew me through our cat having fortunately been killed by their clog. But I was poor then, and poverty is proud. The Vanes' house, dress, and mode of life betokened wealth. I could not tell her I loved her, and now The- charwoman opened the door again and put aut her curl-paper head to say: — "There was, a funeral afore the sale; •perhaps they'd tell you at the under- A funeral! I hailed a passing hansom and drove straight to Gray's Inn. "Yes; Mr. Vane unfortunately died at one of our houses— 19, Westphalia Tor- race. Left no estate; had systematically overshot his income. Sorry I can't -give you any further information.". Not ac lue. The tradesmen knew nothing, the vicar knew nothing, tlio police, of course, knew nothing, and did nothing but pocket my money and take things in notebooks with blunt pencils. Advertisements failed absolutely. And so Clara Vane was lost. to me— passed out of my life completely— leaving me with a really respectable fortune, which it was entirely out of the question for me to enjoy. I did see her again, I di, but not for four years. Four long years. I won't go so far as to say that an hour never passed in which I did not think of her. but I'll swear that two never did. And I loved her more than ever, Well, after four years of this life— I had my own work to do and my other life to live, but that has nothing to do with this story— after four years, business took me to Tunbridge. . ' I went by an express train. 1 bought the day's papers and got a comfortable corner In a lirst-class carriage, where I let the papers Ipy on my knee unu dreamed ' my usual dreams — Clara, dlara, Clara. As we passed through Hal stead Station the train slowedd for a little. I looked out, with a torpid curiosity as to the gardens, and saw— Clara! Whizz!— zz— whirr! The train had shot past the station, the carriage windows rattled, the train vibrated and pulsated with the increasing speed, and every pulse and every vibration was carry- lug me away from my heart's heart. In a flash I saw that if I went on to Sevenoaks and got a train back, she, w^o was obviously waiting; for the next up train, would have left the station Ioi4g before I readied it. Probably she ; was only spending the day at Halstead, and any search for her there would be io va'.n. I broke the glass, pulled the handle. '.3>he train slackened, aud as it stopped • fte guard put his head in at my carriage window. >. :"Why, you're all right," he said. 'fBle-st if i dln't think you was dead wjieu I Ueavd that bell!

Clara was just gettirig into a first- class carriage. I stumbled In after her and sank panting in the coi'ner. She, seated at the far window, did not turn her eyes on me till the slow !.hrob of the train betokened departure. Then she looked at her fellow trav» eler atid blanched. We were alone in the carriage, and 1 fear 1 had a lunatic air, Then she recognized me. Her face flushed and she said: "Oh, you?" with a delightful lighten- lug of es'cs arid brow and a dimpling at the comer of the mouth. "i had," I exclaimed, pnntlugly—"to run—to catch—the train." "I suppose so," she said, leaning back in her corner and smiling. "It wasn't very wise to give yourself so little time to do it in. Where have you sprung from? Have you friends down here?" "I have sprung," I said, beginning to recover myself, "from the main line down, and am subject to a penalty not exceeding £5 for availing myself of the electric communication and stop-, ping that train." "Why did you stop it, If one may ask?" "You may ask, just as the guard did. I stopped the train because I have been looking for you for four years, and T saw you on the platform. I would have stopped a tigw on the march of civilization, on the same grounds." fore proceeding, for proceeding. "I have been looking for you for four years," I said, "to ask you to marry me. Dear, I have never even thought of marrying any one else, and I have been looking for you all this time." My flippancy, 'born of nervousness, was deserting mo. I leaned forward earnestly. "Oh, how good it is to see your dear face ugain!" I said. "This pays for all. , ;It is " "Stop!" she interrupted, locking down. "I suppose you don't know I was married three years ago to Gen. Peglar!" Married! I sank back, sick at heart. The train stopped and a copy of the Times got in, with a gentleman completely buried in it. That was an awful journey—T sat up very straight and asked questions about roses and the people who lived at Halstead, and the prospects of the hops, and many other things about which T did not want to hear, and Mrs. Peglar answered me. And the Times and its reader sat opposite to me. At Charing Cross, as I handed Clara out, she said in a voice that was not very steady: "Won't you come and see me sometimes? I live at the Red House, Halstead." "No," I said. "That would be too much. I hope I shall never see you again. Good-bye," my sluu'p disappointment lending a vinegary flavor to my voice. "Your mother, I trust, is well?" She did not answer, and I blundered on: I regret to see that you are in slight mourning. Not, I trust " "No, no, 110!" she cried, vehemently. "Mamma, at least, is left to me. She doesn't hate mo because I tried to do the best f6r her when she was left penniless. She knows I thought I ought to marry Gen. Peglar. She knows how I cried and wondered why you—where you " Clara stopped short. "Good-bye," she said, and then resumed her walk down the platform. "I'm not in mourning for my darling mamma, thank God! It's for Gen. Peglar, of course." We went down into Charing Cross gardens, where the children and th<j'. sparrows play, and sat there in the sunshine, hand in hand. Prices -for Sen Otter Far. That of the sea otter is of all furs the most valuable, as high as $1,100 having been paid for a single skin. At the latest London fur > ale §1,05Q' was paid, the lowest price being due to a poorer quality, as the average' advance in price this year has been about 15 per cent. This seems an ex- tremeJy large sum to pay for -a skin not more than two yards long by three- quarters of a yard wide. Russians, however, consider that ,1>250 is not an extraordinary price to pay for a piece sufliclently largo to make a coat collar, for which the skin of the sea otter is used, as it is supposed to have the property of preventing the breath from freezing.—New York Tribune.

Talnaage, who is now preparing to leave Australia for India, onhisround- tho'world tour, has selected as the subject for to-day's sermon through the press: "The Ta* Collector's don« version," the text being taken from Luke six t 9, "This day is salvation, come to this house.' Zaccheus was a politician and a tax- gatherer. He had an honest calling, but the opportunity for "stealing*" was so large, the temptation was too much for him. The Bible says he "was a sinner"—that is, in the public sense. Bow many fine men have been ruined by official position! It is an awful thing for any man to seek office under government unless his principles of integrity are deeply fixed. Many a man, upright in an insignificant position, has made shipwreck in a great one. As far as I can tell, in the city of Jerico thfs Zaccheus belonged to what might be called the "Ring." They had i things their own way, successfully avoiding exposure—If by no other way, perhaps by hiring somebody to break in and steal the vouchers. Notwithstanding his bad reputation, there were streaks of good „ about him, as there is about almost every man. Gold is found in quartz, and sometimes in a very small percentage.' Jesus was coming to town. The people turned out en masse-to see him. Here he comes—the Lord of Glory- on foot, dust-covered and road-weary, limping along the way, carrying the griefs and woes of the world. Ho looks to be sixty years of age when he is only about thirty. Zaccheus was a short man, and could not see over the people's heads while standing on the ground; so he got up into a sycamore tree that swung its arm clear over the .road. Jesus advanced amid the wild excitement of the surging crowd. The most honorable and popular men of the city are looking on, and trying to gain his attention. Jesus, instead of regarding them, looks up at the little man in the tree, and says, "Zaccheus, come down. I am going home with you." Everybody was disgusted to think that Christ would go home with so dishonorable a man. I see Christ entering the front door of the house of Zaccheus. The icing of heaven and earth sits down; and as he looks around on the place and the family, he pronounces the benediction of the text: "This day is salvation come to this house." Zaucheus had mounted the sycamore tree out of mere inquisitiyeness. He wanted to see how. this stranger looked—the color of his eyes, the length of his hair, the contour of his features, the height of his stature. "Come down," said Christ. And so, many people, in this day, get up into the tree of curiosity or speculation to see Christ. They ask a thousand queer questions, about his divinity, about God's sovereignty, and the eternal decrees. They speculate, and criticize, and hang on to the outside limb of a great Sycamore. But they must come down from that if they want to be saved. We can not be saved as philosophers, but as little children. You can not go to heaven by way of Athens, but by way of Bethlehem. / Why be perplexed about the way Dsin came into the world, when the great ques- tipn is how we shall get sin driven out of our hearts? Jlow many spend their time in criticism and religious speculation! They.take the Rose of Sharon, or the lily of the valleyi pull out the anther, , scatter the corolla, and say, "Is that.the beautiful flower of religion that you are .talking about?" No flower is beautiful after you have torn it all to pieces. The path to heaven is so plain that a fool need not make, a mistake, about it, and yet men stop and cavil Suppose that, going toward the Pacific slope, I had resolved : that I would stop until I could kill aU the grizzly bears and the panthers on either side of the way, I would /never have got to the Pacific coast- When I went out to hunt the grizzly bear, the grizzly bear would have come out to hunt me. Here is a plain, road to heaven. Men say they will not take a step on until they can make game of all the theories that bark and growl at them from the thickets. They forget the fact that as they go out to hunt the theory/ the theory comes out to hunt them, and so they perish. We must receive the kingdom of heaven in simplicity. William Pennington was one of the wisest men of this pountry—a governor of his own state, and afterward speaker of the house of representatives. Yet, when God called him to be a Christian, he wept in, and sat down among some children who were applying for church membership, aud he said to his pastor, "tajk to me ftB you do to these .children, for I know nothing about it," There is no need of bothering .ourselves abput mysteries when tfeere. are so many things that are plain.

Zaccheus, come doWtil come doWti!" t notice that this tax-gatherer accompanied his surrender to Christ with the restoffttion of property that did not belong to him. Be says: "If I have taken anything by false accu<- sation, t restore foiir-fdld." That ir» if I have taxed any man fof $10000 when he had only five thousand dollar's worth of property, and put ia tny own pocket the tax for the last five thousand, 1 will restore to him four-fold. If 1 took from him 8.10 1 will-give"htin $40, if I took from him $10 I Will give him 81 CO. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been sent to Washington during the past few years as "conscience money." I BUD pose that money was sent by men who Wanted to be Chris* tians, but found they could not until they made restitution. There is no need of our trying to come to Christ as long as We keep fraudulently a dollar or a farthing in our possession that belongs to another Suppose you have not money enough to pay your debts, and for the sake of defrauding your creditors you put your property in your wife's name.' You might cry until the day of judgment for pardon, but you would not get it without first making restitution. In. times of prosperity it is right, against, a rainy day, to assign property to your ; wife; but if, in time of perplexity and for the sake of defrauding your credi- 1 tor you make such assignment, you become a eulpirt before God, and you 'may as well stop praying until you have made restitutiori.-° ; 0r suppose one man loans another money On bond or mortgage, with the understanding that the mortgage can lie quiet for several years, but as soon as the mortgage is given, commences forclosnre—the sheriff mounts the auction-block, and the property is struck down to at half price,- and the mortgagee buys it in. The^mortgagee started to get the property at half price, and ia a thief ah r d' a robber. Until he makes restitution, there is no mercv for him. Suppose you sell goods by a sample, andjthen afterward send to • your customer an inferior quality of goods. You have committed a fraud and there is no mercy for you until you "have made' restitution. Suppose you sell a man a handkerchief for silk, telling him it is all silk and it is part cotton. Nq mercy for you until you have made restitution. Suppose -you sell a horse, saying he is sound, and die afterward tUrns out to be spavined and balky. No mercy for you until you have made restitution. ..,,!.' The wav being clear, Christ walked into the house of Zaccheus. He becomes a different man: his wife a different woman; the children are different. Oh!-it makes a great change in any house when Christ comes into it. How many beautiful homes are represented among you! There are pictures on the wall, there is music in the drawing room; and luxuries in the wardrobe; and a full supply in the pantry. Even if you were half asleep, there is one word with which I could wake you, and thvill you through and through, and that word is "home!" There are also houses of suffering represented, in which there are neither pictures nor wardrobe, nor adornment—only one room, and a plain cot or a bunk in a corner; yet it is the place where your loved ones dwell, and your whole nature tingles with satisfaction when you think of it and call it home. Though the world may scoff at us, and pursue us, and all the day we be tossed about, at eventide we sail into the harbor at home: Though there be no rest for us in the busy world, and we go trudging about, bearing burdens that well-night crush us, there is a refuge, and it hath an easy chair in which we may sit, and a lounge where we may lie, and a serenity of peace in which we may repose, and that refuge is home. **#*#* Up to forty years men work for themselves; after Jhat, for their children. Now, what do you propose to leave them. Nothing but dollars! Alas! what an inheritance! It is more likely to be a curse than a blessing, Your own common sense and observation tell you that money, without the divine blessing 1 , is a curse. You must soon leave' your children. Your shoulders are not so strong as they wore, and you know that they will soon have to carry their own burdens. Your eyesight ia not so clear at once; they will soon have to pick out their own way. Your arm is not so mighty as once; they will, soon have to fight their own battles. Oh! let it not be told on judgment day that you let your family start without the only safeguard—the religion of Christ, Give yourself no rest until your children are the sons and daughters of the Lord Almighty. Your son does jugt as you do, He tries to walk like you, and to talk like ypu. The daughter Imitates the mother.

Trowbridge shows that a discharge keeps in the same path for the 300-,lOOth part of a second, and he believes that a "step- doton" transformer— a : device by which the voltage of the discharge would be reduced— might render it lit for the service of man. An av'erage thundercloud is estimated to coutafa about 800 horse-power of electrical energy. A flash of lightning a • quarter, of a mile long practically means an electromotive fore* 'of millions of volts. Reckoning ott a basis that, a flash occurs when the .electrical .strain on the air is 1.8? pounds in a cubic mile of the sprained 'air just on the point of flashing Is about 70,000.000 foottons, or, in other words, the energy required to raise a ton ' 70,000.000 feet ''high. Electricians are now trying -to think out how this enormous power can be brqugut^down to earth and utilized, and they . talk of employing sonic modification of Franklin's kite, at all events-for experimental work, if they should succeed the corralling of -lightning flashes may come to he a pro- litable occupation. ..(;.:'. . Cooking by Electricity-. Proprietors of hotels, restaurants, etc,, in this country, who are hovering on : the brink of adopting electricity for cooking purposes, will take fresh courage on hearing that electrical cooking is coming into high favor in England, and many of the first restaur- ateti's in London and elsewhere are installing electric cooking apparatus throughout their culinary apparatus merely supplements gas or coal fires, but in several instances the electric system has entirely superseded coul or gas. The proprietor of a large and noted restaurant makes a very effective advertisement out of his electrical plant. He isues the following notice to the public- "Although electricity has, been publicly demonstrated to be capable of use for the generation of heat for culinary purposes, and although its advantages of freedom from dirt, dust, or vitiated atmosphere is fully proved, I claim to be the first in Europe to entirely adopt the system, which not only insures cleanliness, but at the same time places at the disposal of the chef a means of absolutely controlling the temperature to suit the requirements of nirttcular dishes. "Visitors are invited to inspectj the electrical arrangements at any time,. except during tho busy luncheon hours." Shock From Electric Current. M. Claude calls attention to the importance of instructing persons not only in the method of resuscitating those apparently drjwned, with a special view to applying it to victims from the circuits when such circuits are still alive. Cases are not infrequent when a second death is caused by ignorance of the simple procedure necessary • in such contingencies. M. Claude demonstrates the danger of touching the body except through the medium of some insulating material, and suggests first taking off one's own clothes, and wrapping them around the hands, or making a bundle of such clothes, and forcing them between the victim and his connection with the earth. Driving Windmills l»y Electricity. A novel departure has been taken by the owners of a windmill at Bremen, Germany. Hitherto it has been the custom to use windmills in conjunction with dynamos for the generation of electricity, more especially for lighting purposes, in places remote from a regular supply of current, and some most, successful installations of this kind have been made. The owner of the German windmill proposes to reverse this process,' and instead of making his windmill drive v a dynamo, he will use an electric motor, connected with the town electric mains, for driving his machinery when a calm prevails. An Improvement in Electric Bella. One of the most objectionable qualities of the electric bell is its uniform noisiness and shrillness!. There are many places in which an alarm of a less aggressive and peremptory nature is desirable, and it is surprising that a "quiet" electric bell has not been manufactured for use in offices, hotels and private houses. The bell can be adjusted to make as much or as little noise as may be needed. Its principal feature is that it can bo used either as a slow-striking boll, a single- stroke bell or as an ordinary trembling bell, according to tho way it is connected on. An ISlslit-Yenr-Qia Kinsr nncl Hl« Army, A pretty and ingenious "toy" has been provided for his Majesty Alfonso XIII. of Spain. The little King will be initiated into military Hfe by taking the command of a battalion of troops varying in age from five to eight years, There are 700 of these baby soldiers, and they wear the blue uniform and red cap of the "miquelet" Spanish regulars. The drummers are perhaps the most picturesque members of the party. Their enthusiasm for theiv work is boundless, but the organization is strictly according to rule uud AVUUUy, Dp, S.
