'But their natlls in life diverged; he remained at tho foot of the eccleslas* ticnl ladder and she married trade. "Theodore)" his wife said, nudging him, "did you see that handsomely dressed lady who looked so happy? I wonder when you will be able to give me a silk dross. r And, oh! slid had >on such a lovely man tie." ' ; The curate did not reply, but the speaker was too excited with her new surroundings to notice his silence. As tho afternoon wore on he resolved still further to throw pecuniary prudence to the winds and treat his belongings to the luxury of a short sea trip. His wife, assured that there was no danger, scrambled into the boat with all tho awkwardness of a- lands-woman, the children followed, and he, rejecting the services of _ the boatman, took the tiller. He momentarily felt himself a new man, as, wl th tho skill of years ago, he shook out the little mainsail and jib,' and pushed out into tho open. £_ Suddenly another boat appeared, sailing stem on to them. Tho cur|te starboarded his holm, but the other steersman must have ported hts, 'tor the two vessels continued . their dangerous courses. Both husband and wife observed .that .the handsomely-attired lady. with elderly companion, was in the swiftly advancing cutter. A collision appeared inevitable when the clergyman adopted a desperate expedient. The mainsail of his boat-swept over, tho boat heeled almost down to the waters edge. • He had jibbed her. "That was bravely, yet foolishly, done," the boatman said 'when tliey landed. "You all might have gono'to Davy; these centorboard^' craft won't stand jibbing." " ' "And if ! I had not done so, what?" the curate, asked slowly and wearily. "Why, mate, there would have been a smash. "Wo all expected it, and were ready to put off." The lights gleamed far out at sea on that still, calm, summer evening, and the shadows fell. The curate's children had long since been called from their play. The day at the seaside was ended. A heavily laden train thundered through the crowded station. It was shortly afterward followed by a second. After this, all was still for a while, except for 1 tho surging crowd and the hoarse "By your leave!" of busy porters. The level crossing was thronged by excursionists, eager to return to the :homes from which in early morning they had' been equally desirous to get away. Suddenly a, porter sliouted, "Stand back!" as a gleaming light, which rapidly became larger and brighter, appeared in the distance/and a rumbling sound was borne along upon the night air. * ( As it came nearer'tbe crowd madly dashed backward and 1 forward across the line, leaving it clear. The train was sweeping into the station when an elderly gentleman, dragging a lady after him, 'made "a wild, attempt to reach the farther platform. All saw the danger, but were powerless to avert it, The man sprang forward alone, leaving his terrified companion standing in the track of death. The curate's wife saw her for, a moment, It was the woman she hadj envied— the occupant of the boat. f As the train thundered onward 4 tall, spare man dashed forward and snatched the lady from beneath Us overhanging buffers. She was saved, a.n$ b,e— 'the cvue], engine stnick him in the chest, hurling him, a bruised and broken mass, buck upon the platform. "Oh, Theodore, Theodore! was U for this J begged you to leave your work and take a change?" a, woman wailed.' A doelw in the crowd looked ftt the clergyman's pale face and threadbare ga rb and njurmuved, "Poor fellow! it is 'a good change for him. He died as be lived— for others."— Go'pd Conv Hfi B3t*lfcE I country is becoming 1 , ' intefes'tted, in the small village, of Kaneville, 111,, be> cause of the astonish ing success 6i the now.dele bra-tea itr chain," It has brought Into pirbm* laen'ce two worthy dwellers itl .Ivaneville,- Mf s. , Ed'tta R. Oaf man;, better knbwn-to thousands of benevolehfr stamp contributors as Edna Brown, and the hai-d working third class postmaster of Kaneville, Mr. Shoellhorh. Edna ; "BroWn, who is a native ( of Jefferson county, New York, arrived In Kaaeville about four years ago, Ilere she becaino engaged to Charles 6-akf i MBS. EDNA' H. GARMA& Garinan. -A: ..sister .of her betrothed is Miss Mettio Garman. who is'a cripple having been afflicted witji spina' trouble for the' last twelv'p'years, or since she was 0 years old. The sister in^law becomirig greatly attached to the young girl,' and having heard of a cripple in Sycamore, 111.'/ who set ou to collect 1,000,000 canceled stamps from the sale.'of "which he* hoped to ge' money enough to purchase a cork leg conceived the idea of making a similar collection with a view of 'getting money to pay for Miss Garman's treatment in a hospital. Miss Brown wrote to,, friends at her old home in New York" for assistance in swelling the collection of canceled stamps. There one pf, her friends suggested the collection by geometrical progression. MisSj , Brown approved tho idea and consequently the first letter was launched by the New York lady in 'Edna B. Brown's name, which is on most of the letters now going the rounds 6f the whole United States, as well as Canada and Mexico. The originators of the plan never dreamed of the results thafcthis original letter has brought abo,ut. Whatever inconvenience tho .insulting "chain" may have been to the good people who so readily and sincerely responded, it is safe to say the intentions of tho originators were sincere. The credit for the "chain" idea belongs in the main to a •lady in New York state. She it.wns who started a "chain" of letters numbering from one to fifty, trebling itself at every number, and asking every one 'receiving a copy to send ten or more canceled stamps to Miss Brown. After the start the good natur^d public took hold with a will, ar\d canceled stamps are pouring into the Kaneville postofiice. Mjss Brown, who has now become Mrs. Garman, is receiving from 10,000 to 15,000 letters every day, and already has on hand millions of canceled stamps which she does not want and has no idea how to dispose of. Her c,hief wish QOW is that stamps would quit coming. Postmaster Shoellhorn, meanwhile, has the distinction of handling more mail daily than any other fourth class postmaster ever did, One day recently ho turned over 20,000 letters to Mrs. Garman.

A 1 .- 8. W. Young, vicar 6f Kingston, is a bachelor, and is not ashamed td confess that he stitches on his own buttons. This bold avowal was made by the revez-end gentleman While presiding at the annual prize distribution at the endowed school for girls in that town. Referring to tho opinion expressed by the examiner that the button holes made by .the pupils xv^re capable of improvement. Mr. Young remarked: "I never trust any one but myself to sew on buttons and I know how it should be done properly; but I candidly confess I should be at some loss to' tell a good button hole from a bad one." The picture thus pathetically drawn ol their pastor sibting with a garment over his knees stitching buttons on it brought tears to the eyes of tho elderly unmarried ladies present. The venerable Archdeacon Burney, who was one of the speakers, remarked that in days happily ended he also did a good deal of button stitching on" his own account, but was now fortunately relieved of that heavy responsibility. He hoped . soon to see Rev. Mr. Young in the happy position of having some one to sew on his buttons for him— and to do it well.

Aihes of tenrly Somo bodies wore removed from Trinity churchyard, Sixth avenue, Pittsburg, a few days ago, which had been interred in tho early part of the century. One was that of Dr. phelix Brunot, born at Moroy, Franco, in 1752, He came to America in 1777 with the "marquis do Lafayette, and' fought with the Americans during the revolutionary war. The Brunots became very wealthy, and an island in tho Ohio rivor, ten miles below Plttsburg, still bears the name of Brunot's island. No burials have been made in Trinity churchyard for many years. It is now in the heart of the city, and tho windows of tho palatial Duquesne club look down upon this resting place of tho early Pittsburgers. Ho Was Friendless.

Emile Zola was born in Paris, April 1840. Passed his infancy in Provence with his father, the originator of the canal which bears his name in Aix.

When tho blood is impure it is fertile soil for all kinds of disease germs, and such troubles as scrofula, salt rheum, rheumatism, catarrh, grip, and typhoid fever are likely to appear. Weak nerves indicate as surely as any physical' symptom shows ,any-' thing, that the organs and tissues of the body are not satisfied with their nourishment. They draw their sustenance from the bJood, and if the blood is thin, impure or insufficient, they are in a state of revolt. i sommoii', EMILE ZOLA, published ahout 1876, ated a great sensation, and through a number of editions. cre« ran The FuWe at e time Af&ska is ready fpp sot. its, re,8ouvoe8 \y}U probably be mu.o}} improved, T/fbioJ} is\ far better " m *W I s * krp'ugbjt once frow' The Sultan a Hnrrt Worked Man.
