For, truly, it is not the lot of everyone to become the hero of an adventure, and it is an adventure, even an extraordinary ad, Venture, that befell the worthy architect in the short space of time neces- 'sary to arrive at Paris, to descand at 1 A hotel, to go to bed and to sleep ith'ere, to be awakened by a cominis- 'saire of police and dragged to the station house under the serious accusation of broken marital vows.

Pardon me, not a bit of it, a procos- r verbal, ilagranto delicti!, made out by the commissairo himsslf in the presence of witnesses and of the outraged husband. A proces-verbal that bore upon it textually and specifically as follows:—"and in that aforesaid chamber wo found, side by side, feigning to sleep, Mme. Virgime Cardinal and M. Cyprian Durand." It was all on account of M. Fortune, Gustavo Adolph Cardinal, whom we nro compelled to designate, all the Mime, as tho "unfortunate" Cardinal, ,hincc he was the husband of the too )-. isceptiblo Yirginie Cardinal, for he litul really had for some time past some reason to suspect the fidelity of his pretty better half. In order to clear up these suspicions, he put in practice the eternal feint—the only one, apparently that never grows gray with age, and set off on a pretended voyage of two or three days. He strapped his valise, tenderly embraced hit wife, and regretfully departed. Virginie, leaning' from the win- 'clovv, saluted with a sigh of t>:vtisf action tho fiacre bearing sway her husband; then, hotfooted, put on her hat, gloves and my WmiNCE C.'VME THIS JE/EHEL?" , and ran to carry the happy tfo'ws to a young lawyer's clerk, very strong in sentiment, and exercising jn idle moments the functions of third •assistant in a bailiff's office.

Monsignor Cardinal, it seelns to me', ought to havo been exceedingly well pleased that the innocence of his better half had been proved in this brilliant and unexpectedly triumphant manner; but strange contradiction of tho human lieart.his first surprise past, felt himself angered and humiliated,and resumed his rummaging around, even into the drawers of the wardrobe iind commode. ' "I am sure of my facts," he stubbornly responded to the inquiring gaze of his police companions and the confident sitiilo on the lips of the third assistant. "I am sure of my facts, and we must look everywhere.." No evidence resulting, however,' 1 they were about to lift the siege; The magistrate had already given the signal of departure, but just at this moment the idea came to him to turn the handle of a door to one side, communicating with the adjoining chamber, and from whence escaped the continuous sound of a robust snoring. The handle turned, and the door opened without tho smallest difficulty. Followed by the husband, the com- missaire entered the room, where the arrival of two men and a lantern at this hour of tho night naturally awakened M. Durand, at the moment when, deliciously plunged in- a seraphic dream, traversed by the wings of archangels, ho was accompanying the celestial choir with all the power of his most convincing snore. And there, tho truth must be told, beside the pious sleeper, tho worthy Fortune Cardinal refouncl his lost Virtrinie. "You will rise at once anil follow me, monsieur," said the commissaire severely to the bishop's architect, for here and now I charge you with unbecoming conduct with Madame Virginie Cardinal, wife of this gentleman present." "Madame Cardinal! what are you talking about?" demanded M. Cyprian Durand, brusquely torn from the beatitudes of his dream, and stretching eyes misty with sleep and blinking weakly under the sudden eruption of light, "What Madame Cardinal are you talking about?" '" She who is lying-beside you," returned the commissaire, with reproachful dignity. ' The president of the church wardens turned his head quickly and saw for the .first time the charming features of the pretty Virginie, who, red now as a cardinal flower,,modestly lowered her eyes. "From whence comes this jezebel, and how came she in my bed?" shouted the worthy architect, bewildered with fright and bounding from his covers. But he cried out and protested all for nothing, and swore vainly that ho knew absolutely nothing of a single word of the adventure; that ho had just arrived at Paris, and was tho father and grandfather of, a family. Nothing availed him, The delit was flagrant, consequently undeniable. That which had happened wa,s very easily explained to all save ..the com- missaire. Mme. Cardinal ; and the third assistant,hearing the'i'ap on the door and tho ominous »'In the name o'f the law," had hastily, and for a',, .while unsuccessfully sought a plaqe of concealment. Over in the . corner was a door. The poor woman turned the handle swiftly, it yielded, she;ehtered and found herself in blackness, troubled only by the snorings of a heavy sleeper. She stood still for a second, irresolute and listening, but. when there resounded in the room she had left the voice of her husband she lost her head, advanced by feeling till she encountered a bed, and softly hid under the Covers, so softly that the sleeper never an instant interrupted his snoring. Of course tho outraged husband know the innocence of the good M, Durand, but that was of no conse* quence, he held.-to his vengeance, and fas,t to hiin/tUl he could plead for adi spite of the desjmring' supplication's of the unhappy architect, who was sbatne crushed,aqd who dared not for his life return to M- because of jus wife, his. bishop, and his virtuous brothers of the order of Sjvint Anthony, the chaste. What a scandal! What an uproar! What would they say at M when the terrible news reached there, and how was it all to end? ooe thing is, certain, if Cyprian pvev does return to his home, it will stated at the outset, with memories to last him a, lifetime and (,h.e firm determination, BQ matter what happens, n.eyer,to journey from M-*—' again fpr sp mugh as. ap hour.

In the Case of % < the battery herein illustrated, full size, We ,have what is probably the small' cst, lightest, ,and most compact prac* ticable battery made, while it.yields a large current (two amperes) -at a reasonably high voltage (I/I volts,) It will thus be seen that while this battery is at one extreme in point of size, it is at the other extreme as regards the Work it can do. It is capable of ringing a door bell for twenty-eight hours continuously, equal to about one and a half years in ordinary use. It will work a Faradic motor from 52 to 100 continuous hours 'and two cells on a sparking coil in a gas light' will give nearly 300,000 ignitions. For testing and blasting it is bo very efficient and convenient.. .The battery, consists of a zinc cell 11-10 inch in diameter and 3% inches' long, closed with a hard rubber stopper, and containing an electrode formed of fused silver chloride. The chloride is cast upon a zigzag silver wire, the straight end of which extends through a stuffing box in the cover, forming one polo of the battery. The zinc cylinder forms the other pole. The , cylinder of- fused chloride of silver is inclosed in a'cov- cring of textile material, and /held in place by. hard rubber disks at opposite ends. The disk adjoining the hard rubber stopper is held in place by a short piece of clastic tubing surrounding the silver wire. The space between the silver chloride and the zinc is filled With fibrous material which is saturated with the electrolytic liquid with which the cqll is filled. For many purposes where this battery is to be carried in the pocket,it is inclosed in a casing containing two, four, eight or more cells. A four-cell battery with casing weighs but five ounces. These batteries are used in the treasury department and in other places in connection with small electric lamps for temporarily illuminating vaults, safes, etc. A single cell of this battery is so light that it may be mailed for ;2 cents. It will work in any position, does not polarize, is not affected by climate, and the strength remains constant up to the moment of its final exhaustion. —Scientific American. Railway Ambulance Service. As railway accidents arc inevitable, and as the only thing tho officials can dp is. to take care of the injured as quickly'oroughly as possible, it would be an excellent plan to equip on every road one or more cars as a relief train. It shotild be stocked with medical and surgical appliances of all sorts, and stationed where it could be put in motion at a moment's notice. Of course, the main office is notified at once in case of accident, and:relief could'be sent without delay. The value of such a train as a saver of life can scarcely be estimated. : Many injured persons die from neglect becau'se there tiro so many sufferers that sufficient help can not be had properly to attend to them. The Austrian railway companies have recently provided these trains, and fully equipped them with whatever is needed for immediate alleviation of the distress of the victims of railway accidents, A 1'ump Gear for Wind Mills.

The illustration represents, a light, easily working machine, to loosen and clear the sdil of weeds and vines, and throw it around tho roots of opposing rows of cane. The platform of the truck is narrow and siipported centrally under it is a SUGAIt CAXE CULTIVATOH. triangular scraper with a knife at its apex or front edge, the convex edge of the knife dividing the soil and severing vines,' weeds, etc., in its path. The knife is attached by means of a shank to the standard of the scraper, which extends upwa.rd and is pivoted to a link adjustably attached to a hand lever fulcrumecl just back of its forward end to an upright on the platform. Extending rearwardly from this upright is a, rack upon which the lever has a guided movement, being provided with tho iisual thumb latch to engage the rack. A second lever, pivoted on a rear standard, is pivotally connected at its'forward end with the. front end of the hand lever, and at its rear end this lever is adjustably attached to the iipper end of a shank or standard on whose lower end is secured a follower or mould board, which travels over the surface that has been ope'rated on by the forward sci-aper. As the machine is drawn between the rows of cane, the hand lever is pressed downward, bringing the scraper and its cutting knife into the desired engagement with the ground, the same motion also bringing down the mould board, by which the loosened soil is thrown to both sides au'tl upon the roots of the plants. Insects In Comiminltlo.i. In a paper recently read before an English scientific association; an interesting account was given of tho management of comnmnities of bees and ants. The functions and duties of individuals, the guardianship of community .welfare, the facilities for increase and reconstruction, and the methods of govermnent were commented on. In colonies of white ants, it was stated that the governing forces had tho power to produce at will various kinds,of individuals. Certain communities had what appeared to bo assistant queens and kings, evidently provided in case of accident to or the death of the existing queeiii. There were colonies in which soldier ants abounded; others where there were none at all, but where they were produced on short notice in times'when there was likely to be need of them. Some sorts of ants feed iipon their dead relations, and multitudes have been • destroyed by those who went outside to get food, They returned to their homes, died, and were devoured by their fellows, they in turn dying in large numbers, Entire tribes were swept off in this way. The study of bees is even more interesting. There are sometimes hundreds of thousands of worker bees with one queen. It is quite the rule that only the workers and the queen survive the winter. The drone is the male bee, and when his services are not required he is killed and thrown from the hive. The queen lays her eggs in cells built for her by the workers, who are sexless bees. Jn large cells the eggs hatch into drones; in the small ones into workers, The queen is fed, the young bees ctiyed for and the housework of the establish* ment is done by bees too young for flight or so old that there wings will not bear them on there honey gathering flights. The queen rarely allows a rival, and if a n§w queen is hatched, a swarm almost immediately goes out from the parent, hive, oy else the paginal rjueen or the new one must perish, There h^ve bee.ii in&ta,ppes where tvyp queers dwelt poftc.p:fu.l}y in .ojj# hiye, bnt.STjob; arr&n'g^ments ^ &p in -'" ^ be looked; TOOJJ as WON Wtf H A If , - UX ti Wai 8H* tb<s tefsfchdfte M* th&y hftd been lovers, blit notf they re parted.

Days lengthened into months, but the absent one did n6t reappear.- 'He tvas keopi&g good his promise.' Yet the girl did not tvavef in her devotion to ' him, and she resolved to win him backj She remembered that he used to bs fond of hearing her siftg "Annie Laurie," and she wondered if by chance he heard her sing it again it Would revive the old love. She thought of the telephone, and decided to try. So it happened that one afternoon she sat in : a 'phone cabinet down town. Tihg-a-ling, ling, ling, went the boil. The connection was made. He was in the business office. "Is Mr. Walker in?" "Yes, I am Mr, Walker. «What is :UP" In reply the girl began singing in a sWoet, plaintive, sopr-ano voice: Max welton's braos are bonny, Where oarly falls the dew, And 'twas there that Annlo Lnurla Oaed me her promise true, Gaed mo nor promise true, • Which ne'ur f(irgot|wlll be, And for bonnle Annie Laurie I'd JJny toe down and dee. " • He use.d to call her his Annie Laurie. As the tender melody of the old ballad came in trembling tones over the wires tears rolled up in the listener's eyes and his heart almost stood still. He recognized the voice, and, as the girl finished singing the verse, he said in a voice choking with emotion: "You are still my Annie Laurie, dear; you are still my love!" It's all right now.

This demand can only be met by the purifying, enriching and Blood-Vitalizing elements to be found in Hood's Sarsaparilla. ' "My mother-in-law, Mrs. Elizabeth Wolfe, at the age of 72 years, was attacked with a violent form of salt rheum; it spread all over .her body, and her hands and limbs were dreadful to look at. At the same time, my little daughter Clara, who was just one year old, was attacked by a similar disease, like scrofula. . It appeared, in HOOD Lacge Sores under each side of her neck;,had the attendance of the family physician and other doctors for a long time, but semed to grow worse. I read of many E eople cured of scrbfula by Hood's arsaparilla. As soon as we gave Hood's Sarsaparilla to Clara, she be- f an to get better, and. before the first ottle was gone, the sores entirely healed up and there has never been any sign of the disease since. She is a Healthy, Robust Child. Her grandmother took Hood's Sarsaparilla at the same time, and the salt rheum decreased in its violence and a perfect cure was soon effected. It took about three months for her cure, and she ascribes her good health and strength at her advanced age to Hood's Sarsaparilla. It has certainly been a Godsend to my .family." MRS. SOPHIA.
