Old Mr, Courtney was one of tho halest
of bachelors, when It was suddenly an

that foul play was luspected. A post-mortem

aud, Landed to the prisoner to havo mails up.
This the latter had carried io a well-known,
competent druggist, who had put it up in hie
presence, The medicine consisted of three
white powders, each folded in a scrap of pa

per. They were to be given at intervals of
an hour, and had remained continuously Id
the prisoner s possession till the first ttas ud.
ministered, which wat done by himself, im1
mediately on his return from the druggist's.
Mr, Courtney grew rapfdly worse and when
at tho expiration of an hour, n second pow
der was administered, the symptoms became
so alarming that a pietsenge'r was dispatched
for the physical!, who, on, his arrival, der
claroil that the patient was buffering from
the effects of poison. An examination of
the remaining powder disclosed (he fact that
tt was pure arpenlc, It was. too late for any
auttdote to be available, and In leas than au
hour death had relltvtd the sufferer, An

The drug git. who tins kuown to bo aman

cried, in'n.pafaxysm of excitement too ear

I was seated in tny otlice tin the day pre

anything but sanguine expectations, when a

the detective continued, 'confesses that he

We were soon there.
"Please examlno that parcel," I said, put-
tin? It Into the druggist's hands.
He did so, carefully opering the papers'
and impeding their contents. They con
tained three white powders.
How do they correspond with those you
made up for Mr; Courtney;" I inquired, 'and
for which other seem to have been'sa mys-.
terlotisly snbitittited?'
"They do not cferrespond at all," he an
swered ; 'Ihey are tho same.'
"The samel How do you know that ?"

to the Inside of one' of tho papers. 'I had

They did exactly; the chain of evidence
was complete !
I need hardly tell how the trial ended.
Charles Courtney was called by tho prose
cution to prove some unimportant point.
Tho counsel whom I had retained for tho
defeuco' asked him but three questions on
cross-examination :
"Had ho accompanied the prisoner from
the druggi't's?" '
"Had he lost nn overcoat that day?"
"Was that it?" " '
Tho questions wero very simple, but tho
effect on the witness was most remarkable.
Ho trembled and turned pale. Ho knew his
secret was out, and that lying was useless.
He answered all threo questions in the af
firmative, but in n voico scarcely audible.

from tho court, and was never heard of after
With tho testimony of the detective and
tho druggist, not forgetting that of the thief
who stolo the overcoat, wo made short work
of nhnt had promised to bo 'a beautiful case
of circumstantial evidence.'
A French journal says that a tamous
French surgeon, lately deceaed, who was
brusque and unpolished, found, ou entering
his house ono day, an old priest who had
been bug waiting his return. ''What do
you vant of me?" "I want you to look at
this," meekly replied tho priest, taking off
an old woollen cravat, which revealed up
ou tbe nape of his neck a hideous tumor.
You'll have to die with that," coolly re
marked the surgeon. "I thank you, Doc
tor," simply replied the prieid, replacing
hU cravat, "and am much obliged to you
for warning luc, for I can prepare myself,
as well as my poor parishioners, who love
mo very much. ' The surgeon, who was
never astonished at great thtugi, looked Up
on this priest, who received his death sen
teuce unmoved, with amazement, and said i
"Come to-morrow, at, eight o'clock, to the
Hotel Dleu antt ask for me," Tlio priest
was prnnipt, lhc surgeon procured fb
him a special room, and inn month the

looked at tho money, milled, and drawing a
handful of gold from his pocket, put It in

"It's for your poor," and the priest went

and invalid slaves, as Cato recommends the
landowner to do. Tbe tablets in question

Gravel Drains.

I ducted requires more than one-fourth of
square loot as a section of the gravel In the
bottom of the drain, or six inches wide and
six in deptti. 1 nave, in my experiments,
found that a gravel drain, formed of pebbles
from tho buo of a kernel of wheat to that
of a partridge's egg, ids inches by six inches,
will convey in a level ditch four feet in

ThUrulo may servo rs a guide to tbo inex

arc convenient, I use them on the gravel.but
unless the soil returned on gravel is a verv

required before the earth is returned. In
caso (lie veins break out of tho bank higher
than six inches abovo Jho dltcli bottom, tbe
depth should be increased so that it will

Mr. Snow makes a desperate attempt to

This is always the way. If I complain it
is; "Indeed, I am very sorry."
But should the very same thing occur tho

Yesterday morning a couple of boys, might,

solid procession. Qnooftbsm was shlvi

English railway corporations ure employ
