I draw my chair nearer to it with a shiver. 'What n night 1' I say. "Is it still snowing ?" asks my wife, who sits opposito to me, her books and work ou tbo table beside her. "East. Y'ou can scarcely sec a yard before you." "Heaven help nny poor creature on the moor to-night," says she. "who would venture out? It began enow- ng before dark, nnd all tho people about know the danger of being benighted ou tho moor In a snow storm." "Yes. But I hayo known people frozen to death hereabouts before now." My wife is Scotch, and this pleasant houso n tho Uighlands is hers. Wo are trying a winter In it for thu first time, nnd I find It excessively cold and somewhat dull. Men tally I decide that in future wo will only grace it with our presence during tho shoot ing season. Presently I go to tho window and look out; It has ceased bnowing, and through A rift in the clouds I seo a star. 'It is beginning to clear," I tell my wife, and also inform her that it is past 11. As she lights her candle nt a side table I hear a whining and scratching at the trout door. "There is Laddlo looso again," says she. "Would you let him in, dear 1" I did not like facing the cold wind, but could not refuse to let in tho poor animal. Strangely enough, when I opened the door and called him he woudn't come. IIo runs up to tho door and looks into my faco with dumb entreaty ; then he run3 back a few step', looking around to see if I am follow ing ; and finally, he takes my coat in his mnuth nnd tries to draw mo out. "Laddie won't come in," I call out to my wife. "On tho contrary, he seems to waut mo to go out nnd have a garao of snowball with him." Sho throws a shawl round htr nnd comes to tho door. Tho collio was hers before wo were married, and she is almost as fond of him, I tell her, as she is .of Jack, our eldest boy. "Laddie, Laddio 1" sho calls ; "come in, sir." lie comes obediently at ner call, but refuses to enter the house, and pursues tho same dumb pantomime he lias already tried on me. "I chall shut him out, Jessie," I say. "A night in the snow won't hurt him," and I prepared tj close the door. "You will do nothing of the kind 1" sho replies with nn anxious look ; "but you will rouso the servants at nnco aud follow him. Some one is lost in the snow, and Laddio knows it." I laugh. "Really, Jesse, you aro absurd. Laddie is a sagacious animal, no doubt, but I cannot believe he is as elever us that. How can ho possibly know whether anyone h lo-t in the snow or not ?" "Because he has found them and como back to us for help. Look nt him now." I cannot but own that tho dog seems rest less and uneasy, and is evidently endeavor ing to coax its to follow him ; he looks at us with pathetic entreaty in his eloquent eyes. "Why, won't you believe me ?" ho seems to ask. "Come," she continues ; "you know you could not rest while there was a possibility of a fellow-creature wanting your assistance. And I am certain I.addie is not deceiving us." What is a poor hen-pecked man to do ? I grumble and resist and yield ; as I have of ten grumbled and resisted aud yielded be fore, and as I doubtless shall do again. "Laddie once fonnd a man in the snow be fore, but ho was dead," Jessie says, as sho hurried off to fill a flask with brandy, and to get ready some blankets for us to take with us. In the meantime I roused tho ser- auts. They are all English, with the ex ception ot Donald, the gardener, and I can seo they are scoffingly skeptical of Laddie's lagacity, and inwardly disgusted at having to turn out of their warm beds and face the bitter winter's night. Dinna trouble yourself," I hear old Don ald say. "Tho mistress is right enough. Auld Laddie is cleverer than mony a Chris tian, and will find something in tho snow this night." "Don't sit up, Jessie," I say as we start ; we may bo out half the night on this wild gooso chase." Follow Laddie closely, is the only an swer she makes. Tho dog springs forward with a joyous bark, constantly looking back to bee if wo aro following. As we pass through the ave nue gates aud emerge on to the moor, the moon struggles for a moment through tho driving clouds, ' lights up with a Bickly gleam tho snow-clad country before us. "It's like hunting for a needle, in a bundle of hay ir," says John, tho coaclunan.coufidentially to think as we should find anybody 011 such a night as this 1 Why, in somo places the snow is more than a couple of feet thick, and it goes again' reason to think that a dumb auimal would have the scuso to como home and fetch help."

Tho torpedo boat is a particularly Ameri can idea. It was in 1770 and in New York harbor that tho first torpedo boat was launch ed. David liushnell, nn American Captain of Engineers, undertook to plant a torpedo under a British man-of-war, but did not succeed. The torpedo was to bo attached to the bottom of tho vessel by means of a wood en screw, and then fired by a clock-fuse. Du riug the following year a drifting percussion torpedo was directed against a frigate lying oiTNew London, and a schooner that was moored alongside was destroyed. Thirty years afterward Hobert Fulton experiment ed in New York harbor with four classes of torpedoes of his own invention, and in 1843 Col. Samuel applied electricity to ignition of submarine batteries. During the civil war torpedoes of an American invention were used in tho Southern waters, and nine iron clads, eleven wooden war vessels and nine transports and steamboats wero destroyed. Tho only weapon of this kind which has yet been used by the Itussians ou the Dan ube are spar torpedces, like tho one which Lieut. Cushman put under tho bottom of the ram Albemarle, in lloanoko inlet. The man who made that torpedo Is the Inventor of the Improved engine of war, which was exhibited recently at Cleveland,;Ohio. The Whitehead torpedo, which Is regarded abroad asn marvel of Ingenuity, is propelled by compressed air, and cannot be controlled after it starts on Us course. The Lay torpe do boat carries in hold its own engine and boile-i, besides its freight 01 100 pounds of dynamite. Tho engine, the rudder and the exploding fuse aro under the control of the operator on shore. There are threo keys playing on tho battery on shore, and these keys start aud stop the engine or turn it to port or larboard. Tho torpedo may bo so arranged as to explode by, tbo operation of tho keys or by concussion upon striking any hard object. When tho torpedo Btriku tbe vessel or auy other solid substauc, a -e'l U rung In the office on shore, and tliodynamite, may be exploded or not.
