"Mrs Withers stated to you that she She made no further resistance, but hers was one of the chamber doors that unclosed stealthily when, at midnight, the rattle of a latch-key sounded through tbe front hall, and was fol- Caiaraonnt. Probably it is true that soi^, *-sa have by nature a peculiar power over wild animals, and it is a matter of coai- moa .experience that animals sometimes strike up sudden friendships with persons they have never seen before. An extreme instance of this kind 5s described by a military correspondent of the New York Sun: "Perhaps of ail the wild animals that may be at least par- tiaily civilized or tamed, the Rooky Mountain lion or catamount offers the least promise; and yet In the writer's experience one specimen was as gentle and docile as 'human kindness could make him. He followed his. master around like a dog, obeying every wish or nod, but would allow no other persons to approach him with offers of kindness or anything eke. This creature was a full grown mountain lion, that for some strange reason had taken a fancy to a Cheyenne Indian. Whether in camp, on the prairie, or in the post, the brute could always be seen quietly following the Indian, but he would never leave his master's heels for any reason except at his master's bidding. Often would he accompany the buck into the- post trader's store, where his entrance was the signal for all dogs to get out and for bipeds not acquainted with the situation to lose no time in taking to the counters. The officers of the post finally persuaded the Indian to part with his pet for a consideration, and the lion, after being securely caged, was shipped as a present to the National Museum at Washington."

Mr. Withers rang the bell and summoned the coachman. His evidence tallied exactly with Harriet's report, and she flattered herself .that the inquisitor's manner was a shade less confident when the witness was dismissed, ' , "You have said that this disappearance was no matter of surprise to you, .-ana.nflded something about vulgar gos- tsip.1 wMi a full explanation," he said, r ill magisterially, Thus bidden, Harriet told her tale.

Mr. Withers met them at the head of the staircase, clad in dressing-gown and slippers. "Ah, here you are. How did you get back?" "The obliging captain hailed a fishing yacht and put us on board," answered his brother. "Have you been uneasy about us?" "Only lest you might be carried some distance out Before you fell in with a returning vessel. You look very tired, Constance. I shall not let her go with you again, Edward, unless you promise to take better care of her." "Tell him just how it happened, Connie," laughed Edward, and the conference 1 was over, "They played their parts weft all of them," muttered Harriet, stealing back to her sleepless pillow. "But they need not hope to gag people now tftat the scandal has taken w&id; 'murder will out.'" Her sagaofty was proved by the appearance in the next day's issue of an extensively circulated journal of a con- splclous article headed "Scandal in High Wfef" setting forth the elopement, per steamer to Europe, of the junior partner in a well-known banking house with the beautiful wife of Ills brother, the senior partner of the aforesaid firm. The Intimacy of the fugitives, the chronicle went on to say, had been much talked of all win- tor In the brilliant circle to which they belonged. The deserted husband was a citizen whom all delighted to honor for his business talents, his probity In public life, and his private virtues, "This affliction falls upon' him with the more crushing severity from the circumstance that he has been for some months an invalid, He Uaa the sincere sympathy of the entire community." Tbe editor of the humane sheet, albeit not unused to eating his own words, never penned a more humble and expiicft retraction of the "unlucky error t»to which, through no fault of ours, we have fallen," tban graced his columns tbe following morning. could hardly have expressed more forcibly bad Edward Withers really horsewhipped him, instead of threatening { 0 do |t, and to pring an Hctiop.for libel as well.

A naturalist who is much interested in birds says that the crow is the wisest of all feathered animals. He has made a number of experiments recently, and declares that an ordinarily well educated crow can count to twenty, and .that he has found a sentinel crow, very old and very wise, that can count to twenty-six. He made these discoveries in a very interesting way. Recently he spent some time in the mountains of Wales, where a company of boys was camping out. One day he found a flock of crows gathered round the body of a sheep that had died, and which lay near a barn. They flew away as he approached, so be hid himself in the barn and waited; but they would not coma back. Then .lie- went out and walked up the mountain, and they all settled down again to the Seast. That afternoon lie took four boys from the camp with him and they marched into tho little building and waited:. No crows came back. Two of the lioya went out. Still no cirows. Their the other two went oat, and only the naturalist remained. But the old sentinel crow had' evidently counted ihera as they went in, and he knew they ftad not all come out. At 1'ast the naturalist left the building and straightway all the crows returned. This experiment was repeated a number of times with varying numbers of boys, but the craws kept count, and would not come cjowu until this building was entirely empty, •' Pmkhaffi has re* eeived the coils' Sdeace of tbon- f" Sands. tTomen open their hearts to her.

In making a salad of fish, II yoti add t little cucumber pickle, chopped very one, to the dish before the dressing is poured over, you wilt greatly iaj^ prove it. Anything with a meringue over it should be put In a cool oven and allowed to brown .felowly if you wish to hare it. light A strong heat toughens meringues. If a bunch of grape leaves are put 5n the brine in which cucumbers are to be soaked for pickling, it will help keep the cucumbers sound and firm, and of a good color. In blanching nut meats, pour over them boiling water and let it stand a few moments. Throw over them cold water and rub them between the fingers, and the skins will readily come off. When the whites of eggs are- used, and the yelks are not required at the same time, drop the yelks into a small cup or glass, cover the surface with a little cold water and keep in a cool place. If corned beef, tongue or ham is left to cool in the water in which it is boiled, the meat will be much better and more moist. All boiled meats should be cooked slowly, and never be allowed to boil rapidly. If whipped cream is wanted quickly, and there is no whip churn available, have the ^pream very cold, and put it In a glass fruit jar with an air-tight cover. Half fill the jar with the cream, fasten the cover tightly and shake '.he jar vigorously. Use the graceful wild grasses as well as the cultivated ones for table decorations as long as they can be had. Thesa grasses come in great variety and are beautiful and decorative.
