It is a sign of returning prosperity that employment will bo given to 3,000 men where 6,000 once were employed. It isa sign of returning prosperity that tbe men employed us heaters, who earned *C 57 per day in 1892, when the Chicago Herald assured them that they wcra -'Starving workmen, ' osv will receive $-1 S4. We shall not emulate tbe dishon- st folly of our contemporary by pro- estiog that men who earn $4 34 a day are In danger o( serving, but we will emind our wage earning friends that we assured them that when, acting on he Herald's advice, they went in for awlplng the tariff 1 they were awlplnp good slice off their wages. Of ourue the stores can not sell so much o heaters who earn $4,31 a day aa to hose wbo earn fG.67. But the Herald epeaka of the reduced rate as iatiBfactory.' 'We have great sympathy with tbe dasg of workmen who, as unBkilled aborera, earned $1. SO in 1892 and early in 1893, but who now will have o live on $1. Tho first sum insured a ruffal living', the latter hints at prl- -ation where tho family is large. We have sympathy, also, with those who earned $3 per day before they read and believed the specious theories of ree traders, but who must bo contented with $2 now that an approach to ree trade is made. Three dollars a day means comfort, two means rigid economy. Still the Herald assures us hat all this is "satisfactory." 'Wo rejoice exceedingly In even a partial rehabilitation of trade. Wo ire glad that 3,000 men are rescued rom idleness, though at reduced rates of pay. But we will not speak ser- ously of this amendment of condition as a 'return to prosperity.' It is, at best, a mitigation of adversity. I( the Wilson bill becomes law we be- ieve that it will be but a temporary mitigation, lor every ton of imported ron will be a 'ton less made in the United States. 'Prosperity will return with the return of a fixed policy of protection Sot till then. Mean while, wo earnest,y rejoice in the present mitigation'of adversity." THE residents of the county who live along the Loganeport and Metea, turnpike will hold a meeting Saturday, the 14th, to arrange to free that road. The object is a good one as these citi/ens are now paying taxes to maintain the other roads and toll on their own road, The meeting should be well attended. Tho meeting wll be held at Metea, at 7 p. m. TIIK Jackson"township Republicans have asked that tho time of the Con grossional and State primaries be changed to 2 o'clock on April 21st. The change baa been ordered by tho Executive Committee and Jackson township republicans will please take notice.

It is the .tory of an English girl's lite between school and marriage, and o£ her tntcl- oetnal growth to the full mental j.iwurs of a modern woman, but the icvel itself is a remarkable portrayal >f country and city conditions in Kng- and as they exist to-day. The daughter of a younger son of an old country family, Marcella is kept it school while her parents travel ibroad. Then on leaving school she fulls in with a group : of socialists and gains opinions as to social and philanthropic questions on which the incidents of the novel hinge. To quote: •At any rate, when the moment came for her to leave Miss I'embevton icr mother wrote from abroad that, as Marcella had of late shown decided iptitude both for music and painting, il would be well that she should cultivate both gifts for awhile more seriously thau would be possible at home. Mrs. Boyce had made inquiries and was quite willing that her daughter should go for a time to a lady whoso rectcd. Thus she becomes engaged to tho heir of a noble house, and it is the eo'irse of this engagement, the estrangement and final reconciliation which make up the story of the book. Marcella does not abandon her theories, and it is the refusal of her lover to interfere with the sentence of a poacher who has murdered cue of his gamekeepers, and in whom Marcella is interested, which impels her to break her engagement. The incidents leading up to the trial and conviction of tlic poacher are poWrfully depicted, and the squalor of English village life and the evils of the Ktigliih gamc- preserving- system arc described in detail. | Mivreelhi passes the night before ex- | ecution with the wife and dying child of the condemned poacher. This is one of the most dramatic passages in the book. "From time to time .Marcella probably slept in lu ' r "''air. Or else it was the'perpetual rush uf image.-: and sensations through the ir.ind that hastened the hours. Once when the first, streaks of the March dawn were showing through the curtains Minta Hurd sprang up with a loud ovy: ••••Oh. my Cod! .Tim. .li:n! Oh. no!— take that oil!. Oh, please, sir, please! | Oh, for Clod's sake, sir" | "Agony struggled with sleep.

"At last, with a start, Marccllu. looked round and saw that the inorn- inff was fully there. A cold lifrht was streaming through the curtains, the fire was still plowing; but her limbs were stiff and chilled under her shawl. She sprang up, horror descending 1 on her. Her shaking fingers could hardly draw out the watch in her belt. "The mother sprang up oewildered, and, hurrying across tin: room, threw herself upon him. " 'Willie, what is it ails ynu, dear? Tell mother. Is it your feet are so cold? Hut we'll rub them— we'll get you warm soon. And here's something to make you better.' Marcella handed her some brandy. 'Drink it, dear: drink it, sweetheart!'' Her voice grew shrill. " 'lie ciin'l,' said Marcella- 'Do not let us plague him; it is the end. Dr. Clarke said -t would come in the morning.' "They hung over him, forgetting everything hut him for the moment— the only moment in his little life he came Iirst even with his mother. "There was a slight movement of the hand. •• 'He wants his animals,' said Marcella, the tears pouring down her cheeks. She lifted them and put them oil his breast, laying the cold fingers over them.

"So bcg-aa an experience as novel as it was strenuous. Marcella soon developed all the ftirs of independence- and nil the jarpf»n of two professions. Working with consuming energy and ambition she pushed her gifts so far as to become at least a very intelligent, eager and confident critic of the art of other people, which is much, lint though art stirred and trained her, gave her new horizons and now standards, it was not in art that she) fou7Ul ultimately the chief excitement and motive-power of her new life —not in art., but in the birth of social and philanthropic ardor, the sense of a hitherto unsuspected social power. "One of her girl friends and fellow students had two brothers in London, both at work at South Kensington, and living not far from their sister. The three were orphans, They sprang from a nervous, artistic stock, and Marcella had never before c omc near anyone capable of crowding so much living into the twenty-four hours. The two brothers, both of them skillful and artistic designers in different lines, and hard at work all day, were members of a risinff socialist society, and spent their evenings almost entirely on various forms of social effort and socialist propaganda. They seemed to Marcella's young- eyes absolutely sincere and quite unworldly. They lived as workmen; and both the luxuries and the charities of the rich were equally odious to them. That there could be any 'right 1 in private property or private wealth had become incredible to them; their minds were full of lurid images or resentments drawn from tho existing state in London; and though one was humorous and handsome, tho other, short, sickly 'and pedantic, neither could discuss the socialist ideal without passion, nor hear it attacked without anger. And in milder measure their sister, who possessed more artistic gift than either of them, was like unto them. But Marcella's father unexpectedly inojceeds to the family estate; and she finds herself, with her newly-formed '&fra, a member of the claw «f dart which the .social!** D-wement in dl- "ten minutes to eightl "For tho first time the girl felt nerve an.1 resolution fail her. She looked at Mrs. Ilurd and wrung her hands. The mother was muttering 1 ami moving, but not yet fully awake; and Willie lay as before. Hardly knowiug what she was doinff. she drew the curtains back, as though inspiration might come with the lip-lit. The vain clouds trailed across the common; water dripped heavily from the thatch of the cottage; and a few birds twittered from some bedraggled larches at the edge of tho common. Far away, beyond and beneath those woods to the right, Widrington lay on tlic plain, with that high-walled stone building at its edge. She saw everything :is it now must be happening as plainly as though she was bodily present there— tho last meal—the pinioning—the chap""••Goaded by the passing seconds she turned back at last to wake that poor sleeper behind her. But something diverted her. With a start she saw that Willie's eyes were open. " -Willie,' she said, running to him, •how are you, dear? Shall I lift your head a little'?' , "He did not answer, though sne thought he tried, and she was struck by the blueness under tho eyes and nose. Hurriedly she felt his tiny feet. They ivere quite cold. " 'Mrs. Ilurd!' she cried, rousing her in haste; 'dear Mrs. Ilnrd. come and see She fell on her knees beside him with a shriek, hiding her face, and shaking from head to foot. Marcella nlonc saw the slight, mysterious smile, the gradual sinking of the lids, the shudder of departing life that ran i through the limbs. "A heavy sound swung through the air— a heavy repeated sound. Mrs. Hurd held up her head and listened. The church clock tolled eight. She knelt there, struck motionless by terror — by recollection. '"Oh! Jim!' she said, under her breath— 'my Jim.' Marcella next interests herself in London hospital svork, and becomes a charity nurse. The scene described in the following quotation is her first meeting with her former lover, Aldous Kaeburn. " 'It's a fight!' said Peabody, as the crowd came up with them. 'Listen!' "Shrieks—of the most ghastly and piercing note, rang through the uir. Tho men and women who rushed past the two strangers— hustling them, yet too c.vcitod to notice them— were all making for a house some ton or twelve yards in front of them, to their left. Aldous had turned white. It is a woman!' he said, after an instant's listening, 'audit sounds like murder. You go back for that policeman!' And without another word he threw himself on the crowd, forcing his way through it by the help of arms and shoulders which in years frono by had done good service for the Trinity eight. . Drink-sodden men and screaming women gave way before him. lie found himself at the door of the house, hammering upon it with two or three other men who were there before him. The noise from within was appalling— cries, groans, uproar, all the sounds of a deadly struggle proceeding apparently on the second floor of the house. Then came a heavy fall— then the sound of a voice, different in quality and accent from any that had gone before, crying piteously and as though in exhaustion —'Help!' "Almost at the same moment the door which Aldous and his companions were trying to force was burst open from within, and three men seemed to be shotout from the dark passage inside —two wrestling with the third, a wild beast in human shape, maddened apparently with drink, and splashed with blood. " 'Ee's done for her!' shouted one ot the captors; 'an' for the sister, too!' "•The sister!' shrieked a woman behind Aldous— 'it's the nuss he means! I sor her go in when I wor at my window half an hour ago. Oh! .ycr blackguard, you!'— and she would have fallen upon the wretch in a frenzy, had not the bystanders caught hold of her. '"Stand back!' cried a policeman. Three of them had come up at Peabody's call. The man was instantly secured, and the crowd pushed back. "\ldrous was already upstairs. " 'Which room'?' he asked of a group of women crying and cowering on the first landing— for all sounds from above had ceased. "'Third floor front.' cried one of them, 'We all of us begged and implored of that young person, sir, not to go n-near him! Didn't we, Betsy?didn't we, Doll?' "Aldonsran up. !p"'0nthe third floor the door of the front room was open. A woman lay on the ground, apparently beaten to C "By her side. torn, disheveled and gasping, knelt Marcella Koyce. Two or three other women were standing by in helpless terror and curiosity. Marcella was bending over the bleed- ing- victim before her. Her own icic arm hnng as though disabled by her sid<-; but witli tho right hand she was doinfr her Iwst to staunch some of the bleeding from the head. Her bag stood open beside her, and one of the chattei-ing women was handing her whatslu; ashed for. The sight stamped itself in lines of horror on Ttacburn's heart. "!n such an exaltation of nerve she could be surprised at nothing. When she saw Uiieburr. cuter the room she did not even start. think.' she said, as he stooped down to her—speaking with pauses, as though to [rot her breath—'ho has— killed her. lint there—is 11. chance. Ar« the —police there—and n. stretcher?" Two eoTistiibli'.s entered as she snnke. :ind the first of them instantly sj:-.t his companion back for a stretcher. T!j«n noticing Marcella-'s nursing- dross and cloak, he came up to her respectfully. •Did you sec it, miss?' .'I—I'tried, to separate them,' she replied, still speaking with the same diftiuully, while she silently motioned to Aldous, who was on tho other side of the unconscious and apparently dying woman, to help her with the bandage she was applying. 'But he was— such a great—powerful brute.' "Aldous, hating the clumsiness of his man's fingers, knelt down and tried to help her. Her trembling- hand, touched, mingled with his. '"Isn't your arm hurt?" said Aldous, pointing to it. 'It's not broken—it's wrenched; I can't use it. There—that's all we can do—till she gets—to hospital" "Then she stood up, pale and staggering, and asked the policeman if he could put on a bandage. The man had. pot his ambulance certificate, and was^ proud to say that he could. She took a roll out of her bag, and quietly pointed to her arm. lie did his best, not without skill, and the deep lino of pain furrowing her brow relaxed a little. Then she sank down on the floor again beside her patient, gazing at the woman's marred face—indescribably patient in its deep unconsciousness—at the gnarled and blood-stained hands, with their wedding ring—at the thin locks of torn gray hair—with tears that ran unheeded down her cheeks, in a passion of anguished pity, which touched a chord of memory in Raeburn's mind. He had seen her look, so once before—beside Minta Unrd, on-, the day of llurd's capture." ARTHUR STF.DMAN. y n jfij7 Strada, the Jesuit philosopher, conceived the idea that the two mnffnets might bo connected in such a. way as to move sympathetically, and that if two persons devised a prearranged code they might communicate with each other at any distance.
