Jlnrjorie Wallace represented to mo all
that was noble, generous, self-sacrificing in
womanhood. My gratitudo to her begun
when I was ten years old, nnd alio came to
the cottage tvliero my mother had bcraped
out scanty food for herself mid for mo lnngo
than my memory recalls. Sho lifted mo from
that mother's dead, cold form, when I was
sobbing out my chililMi agony, and coverili;
my tlnn, chilled limbs in her own velvet
clonic, carried me in garments ns soft and
fine as her own ; she shared every luxury of
her bjilendid homo with mo; hhogavomo
teachers lor all studies suited to my age,
As I grew to womanhood sho introduced mo
to society ns her adopted sister. Rest of all,
she loved me.
cmio was itveiiiy-iivo ttiieu sue tool; mo
home, and for eight years I can recall only
happines. 1 had no whim ungratilied, no
rea-tonablo wish crossed or denied. If I had
been indeed tho sister sho called mo sho
coulu not have lavished upon mo more, ten
der care and affection.
When I was eighteen I had a lover who
won my whole heart. I gave him love, un
consciously, and when his words showed me
what my own hensations meant I shrunk
back nhrigliled. With tho intuition of
deep, grateful affection, I knew that
Marjorie hud wrapped up her life in mine.
Sho blood utterly nlono in tho world. Her
paitl companion and housekeeper was a ma
tron of middle age, wkoso whole soul win
absorbed in preserves, pickles ami crochet
work. In her loiioliucss sho had taken mo
into her great, nohlo heart, and when I left
her I knew I should leave, her desolate.
So I shrunk back from llio avowal that
was such an ccstacy of delight.'such a hitler
self-reproach. 1 thought I had coiumcrod

The Wiiiiilering .lew.
One of the most remarkable fictions over
accepted by the people, is that of tho Wan
dering Jew. Its basis rests upon a falso in
terpretation uf tho words of Scripture:
"Thero are some of them standing hero who
shall not taste death until they sco tho Son
of .Man coming in his Kingdom." It was
tho belief of many that this prophecy was
literally fulfilled in the per.,on of a Jew
who was wandering over the earth, and was
tn continiio to wander till the end nf time.
Tho first mention of the mystical personage
is found in tho chronicle of Matthew Paris,
who states that in 122S an Archbishop of
Greater Armenia having visited tho Abbey
of St. Albans ivhilu on a pilgrimage to tho
shrinei of Kngland, was asked'whether ho
had ever heard or seen of a certain Joseph,
who was present when our Lord suffered,
who spoko to him and was still alive, wan
dering upon the faco of tho earth. A knight
in his retinuo answering, said that his lord
well knew tho man, that he had eaten at the
Archbishop's table, and was often seen and
conversed with by him. The Archbishop
went on to relate that as the. lews were drag
ging our Lord to be crucified, C.Uarpbilm,
one of tho porters in tho service of Pilate,
struck him, saying in mockery ,"Oo quicker ;
why do you loiter?'' Ami Christ, looking
back on him with a stern countenance, said,
"I am going, and you will wait until I re
turn." As our Lord had said, Catarphilin
is still waiting His return, llo was, nt the
timo of our Lord's death, thirty years of
age, ami when he comes to the age of ono
hundred ho returns to tho same ago ho was
when Christ suffered. After tho ascension
of our Lord, Citarphllus was baptized by
Aminius nnd was named Joseph, llo dwelt
in Armenia and other Rastern countries
passing lils time with tho prelates of the
Uhureh, a man of holy conversation, of few
wolds ami circumspect behavinr.neverspeak
ing except to Ulshops and religious, and re
lating tho events which took place when
our Lord died, and in tho lives of tho Apos
tles. The next mention of tho Wandering Jew
wo find in 1.105 in Roheiuia, whero a poor
weaver named Kokot, in great perplexity to
find a treasure hidden by his grandfather
somo sixty years befoie, was shown by tho
Jew where to find it, ho having been present
when it was hidden. About tho sanio time,
mention is mado of tho mysterious person
ago in the Kast, but tho most chciiinstantial
account of him is that given by Dr. Paul
Vou Kueii, afterwards Rishop of Schleswig,
who says that in 1517 "hu observed a tall
man with his hair hanging over his shoul
ders, standing barefoot during tho sermon,
over against llio pulpit, listening with tim
deepott attention to tho discourse, and when
ever tho iiamo of Jesus was mentioned, bow
ing himself profoundly und humbly, sighing
and heating his breast. Ho had no other
clothing lu tho bitter cold of tho winter, ox
ccpl a pair of hoso which were in tatters
about his feet, and a coat with ngirdlo which
reached to his feet, and his general appear-
anco was that ofa man of fifty years." Tho
doctor was struck by tho man's appearance,
urn! inquired about him, Ho found that ho
was unknown to any one. People hud seen
him In all parts of Kuropo, but knew him
not. On questioning him, tho doctor learned
that ho was a Jew by birth, by namo Alias
uerus, by tradu a shoemaker ; that ho had
been present at tho crucifixion, and had lived
over sinco, travcllug through tho world. Ho
rolutod all the details of tho crucifixion, and
gavo accounts ol llio changes in thu uovern-

COf.l'JIIlIA DKMOOIIAT, VOL. XI.!, NO. 23
monLs of tho Kastcrunnd other countries for
many centuries. Ho stated that ho had
worked to havo Christ put to death, nnd
when tho sentence was pronounced ho ran
homo to call Ids family to look nt Him ns ho
was carried to execution. Tired with tho
weight of tho cross, Christ tried to rest for a
while near tho door of Ahasuerus, but was
driven by him away und bid to hasten His
steps. Christ, looking nt him said, "I shall
stand and rest, but thou shall go till tho last
day." When theso words were tittored, Ah
asuerus, who had his child in his arm?, put
it 'down, nnd iinahlo to remain where ho
was, followed Christ and saw him suffer and
die. When this had taken place, ho could
not return to Jerusalem, but was impelled
to go forth into strange lands, ono after an
other. Twenty yean afterwards, tho Wandering
Jew was reported to have been seen lu Spain.
In KVJO he is said to havo been seen in
Vienna; in 1C01 nt Lubeek, and shortly
afterwards at Revel in Livonia, and Cracow
in Poland. Ho was seen in Moscow, and in
1G0.1 ho was again at hubeck. Tho next
year ho arrived in Paris, though tho chroni
clers stato that thoy did not sco him.
It is very probablo that impostors, seeing
how easily tho story was swallowed, frequen
tly appeared in places and claimed to bo tho
Wandering Jew. About tho beginning of
tho last century, a man calling himself such
appeared in Kngland, nnd though educated
people laughed at his pretentions, yet the
vulgar trusted and believed in him. Tho
last appearance of a pcrfon claiming to be
tho Wandering Jew was in 1771 at Rrussels.

This murderous record begau four years
ago, tho lather and mother being the first

and to get out, had forged his father's namo
to several notes, which coming due, began
to trouble him. The father provided for
one, but while talking with Isaac about tho
others ono day, in the barn, was killed
Isaac said by a kick from a horse. A few
nights beforo h"o had been unsuccessfully
shot at through the window, to the great
mystery of everybody, for it was fiipposcd
that ho had not an enemy in tho world. A

some seventeen years old, and of a sudden
sho was sent away to Columbus, for what

order that an abortion might be performed.
During her absenco Isaac's wife antl child

to join tho aged cottplo who had so shortly

In tho meantime, Isaac had obtained from
tho probate court the appointment of himself
as the administrator of his father's estate,
and ( proceeded to settle up his affairs. In
the course of a year it became apparent thnt
Isaac was "administering" tho estate to his
own advantage. Nono of the taxes -were
paid, and it was ascertained that he had been
pledging the assets of the estate for his per
sonal debts. Six months ago, on petition of
his brother, Isaac was removed from tho of

How to Treat Sunstroke.
As tho season of sunstroke Is at hand tho
following facts concerning this visitation aro
worth heeding, coming ns they do from so
high an authority as the Sanitary commlltco
of llio New York Uonrd of Health :
Sunstroko is caused by excessive heat, nnd
especially if tho weather Is "muggy." It Is
more apt lo occur on tho second, third, or
fourth day ofa heated term than on the first.
Loss of sleep, worry, excitement, close sleep
ing rooms, debility, nnd abuse nf stimulants
predispose. It is much moro apt to attack
those working in tho sun, nnd especially be
tween the hours of 11 o'clock In tho morning
nnd 4 o'clock In the afternoon, On hot days
wear thin clothing. Havo as cool sleeping
rooms as possible. Avoid loss of sleep and
all unnecessary fatigue. If working in-doors
and where thero is artificial hcatseo thnt tho
room is well ventilated. If working in tho
sun wear a white lint (not black as it absorbs
heat) and put inside of it on the head a wet
cloth or iilargogrecn leaf; frequently lift tho
hat from the head to seo that tho Cloth is wet.
Do not check prcsplratlon, but drink what
water you need to keep it up, as prespiration
prevents tho body from being overheated.
Have wherever possible an additional shade,
as a thin umbrella, when walking, a canvas
or board cover when working in tho sun.
when much fatbjued do not go to work, or bo
excused frpm work, especially after 1 1 o'clock
in the morning on vcry hot days, especially
if the work is in tho sun. If a feeling of
fatigue, dizziness, headache or exhaustion
occurs ceaso work immediately, lie down in a
shady nnd cool place, apply cold cloths to
and pour cold water over head and neck. If
any person is overcome by tho heat give tho
person cool drinks of water or cold black tea
or coffee, if able to swallow. If the skin is
hot and dry, spongo with or pour cold water
over the body nnd limbs, and npply to tho
head pounded ice wrapped in a towel or
other cloth. If there is no ice nt hand keep
a cold cloth on tho head, and pour cold
water on it ns well ns on tho body. If tho
person is pale, very faint, nnd pnlso feeble,
let him inhale ammonia fora few seconds, or
givo him a tcaspoonful of acromatic spirits
of ammonia (hartshorn) in two tablespoon
fuls of water with a little sugar.

RUILD1NO AS.S9CIATION9. Olio of tlin
most important legal opinions that has boen
delivered for somo timo is that nt .Tmlim
Wylio of the Supremo Court in the District

a member of a buildim; association hud
mado sundry defaults in the pnvmont of his
monthly dues, which amounted tn SlOa

$1S1 had been imposed ou Yates, and his
property was then advertised for sale. Tho
judgo in deciding the ease .iid "ho could
seo nothing in tho nature of theso building
associations to take the fines levied by them
out of the operation of the settled doctrines
of equity: that when fines were merelv col.
lateral to thu performance of somo princi
pal tiling, equity would relieve ugainst them
when tho performance could yet bo mado

Hut in tho case of theso associations tho
fines were collateral to tho navment of ihn
monthly dues by members, and wero inteil-

a member who had made defiiult came hi
