Select Story.
It was a sli;in,fi'osty, Jiioonlicht liiclit
but the fresh waters of Green river had
not yet been chillet1,nntl they flowed rap
idly onward, with confused tnurmurinrrg,
as if itiinatienl to becomo a part of tho
great Olilo.
It was as lato as ten o clock when Rob
ert Craig, a young lawyer, came upon a
bridjjo that spanned n branch of tho
Green River in Central Kentucky. lie
was afoot, and he walked with a verv
litrht sten, because bis heart was litrlit.
lie had been successful in tho most im
portant suit ho had ever been engaged
n. He had pleaded his own case, and
the court that had pronounced judgment
in his favor was simply Miss Mary Lano
the handsomest girl in the neighborhood,
and as tfood as she was beautiful. She
i ad promised to bo his wife.
lint Kober (Jraig was destined to plead
another case that very night, and before
ess eminent court. Uo had no warn
mg ot tins, however, when bo stepped
upon the bridge and walked over the
clear water mutteriiig congratulations to
"Yes, I am the luckiest man livinrjr !"
ho soliloquized, as ho reached the middle
of the bridge.
Tho bridtre was not a covered one.and
lie stopped to lean over tho railing at one
side, and looked down iu tho sparkling
water that quivered in the bright moon-li-llit.
"Yes,T am tho luckiest man livimi!" he
repeated quite aloud,after bo had stood a
lull minute gazing upon the ilowmg
"Don't bo too sure of thai!" said a
voice behind him.
Robert Craij; turned with a start, and
saw a tall man standing at the opposite
hide of the bridge, leveling a ritle upon
hnn. J le seemed very cool and deliber
ate iu his iuanucr,and lie spoke in a tone
mat was nam anil icy.
At the first glance Robert Craig saw
his danger, for he recognized in the in
truder Ralph Moore, who, as ho was well
aware, regarded mm with the bitterest
hatretbfor the reason that both had been
suitors for tho had of Mary Lan, and
Ralph bad of course been rejected, He
was noted as a man of desperate character
although ho be'ongcdto a good family
and ho was moreover known to bo tho
best marksman in tho community. Rob
ert CraiK thought of theso facts as he
found himself standing there in the cold
moonlight with that unerring rifle point
ed at his breast.
IIo himself was unarmed: there was no
hope for succor on that lonely bildgo at
that time of night; retreat was impossible
as well as unmanly, resislanea was im
possible, was equally out of the question.
Ins enemy meant deliberately to take his
i to, and he had tho power to do it. Kob
ert Crai" realized all this, and felt that
certain death awaited him. Tho terrible
exigency tho very hopelessness of the
case made him calm.
"Ralph Moore," he Raid in a voice that
betrayed no einmotion "have you come
hero to waylay and murder me?"
"Itobert unmr. replied KaIph,coldlv,
still keeping tho deadly rillo at an aim,
"did you suppose you could trample over
mo and live?"
His linger was on tho trigger, and tho
fierce look on his face denoted that tho
life he held iu his hands was not worth
much now.
"Rut sttrelv," said Robert Craig "you
arc not wicked enough to commit such a
crinio as I sco you conteiuplato I am un
armed and nt your mercy. While l do
not like you, Ralph, I never thought you
capablo of a cowardly act. It would bo
cowardly to shoot down anjunarmed man
and you know it. You nro ugood marks
man, but I am willinjr. to liyht you fairly
if you think that a mortal enmity must
necssarily exist between us,

Do you think I can bo cajoled by your
smooth talk? No, 1'vo got you Robert
Craig, and you shall never live to enjoy
your triumph over me. x on aro now
within iivo minutes of your destiny. I
will grant you that time to pray if you
want it. Nothing can savo you ! There
is not it soul within half a milo to hear
you if you should yell. You'll bolloating

"Jsut what do you say to being hanged
for murder!"
"There is no witness near. It can never
bo proved nirainst me."
Robert Craig was silent. His enemy
who plainly meant murder, stood like n
statue, with his rillo still pointing at his
head, and watching him liko a oat. There
was an expression of savago exultation in
his Itice.plainly vlsibio m tho mooniigni;
and Robert Craig saw thatitivas idle to
think of ask'nitr for mercy.
Yaiious ideas went whirling through
his brain. IIo thought of running away
and trusting to flight, but ho dismissed
tho thought, for ho could not escape tho
unerring aim of tho relentless man con-
froutinti him. llo thought ot rushing
upon Ralph, and engaging in a desper
ate BtrurKlo lor tho posession ot tho rillo
but ho knew that would bo hopeless. Ho
was twenty feet distant, and his enemy
could shoot him down before ho could
reach him.
As if divining his very thoughts Ralph
Haul, with a ucinomao laugh:
'(Jli, there is no chauco tor yout run
'which way you will, I can bring you
down before you go threo stops. Come,
to praycrl You have only thrco minutes
and n half yet 1"
Robert Craig (stood motionless, mid
with the B.imo coolness ho had displayed
from tho beginning, ho said!
"Ralph Moore, I see you aro in car
nest." "Cerlainly I am. Hal ha! You know
mo well enough to know that I do not
come here for nothing."
"Yet you will not kill mo," said Rob
ert Craig, in a quiet, linn tone. "I can
bring an argument to bear that will pro
vent you."
"Roohl" retorted Ralph, contempt
uously. I'd liko to know what it is?"
"Well, I have a letter in my pocket
hero "
'Stop!" exclaimed Ralph, fiercely
"Keep that hand away from your pocket.
I understand your game you havo a
pistol 1"
"No; upon my honor. If I had you
could shoot mo beforo I could use it. I
think you aro quick enough for that."
"I suppose I am."
"Well, will you allow ma to tako a
letter irom my pocKet, or aro
"Well, I
afraid 1"
"Shall I
pocket ?"

you notice thoso long, narrow, misty
looking clouds in parallel rows tliat seem

Staten Island with tho precision and

storm. Tho barometer has not given tho

Whenever you seo thoso narallel strines
of cloud rising in tho southwest, and
moving in ranks slowly across tho sky,
you may bo sure that wet or snowy
weather is at hand. Why should not
tho clouds foretell tho weather? There
cannot bo a storm or any considerable
change of weather without clouds, and
thero is almost as much perccptiblo dif
ference in clouds as in faces, if people
would but notice them closely."
i;o cioutis always foretell storms!
"No, some ciouds givo assuranco of
fair weather. A very little practice will
enable anybody to read this language of
the clouds. It u linre like studying a
language than you would suppose. You
know itt Latin a change in the termina
tion of a word changes its meaning. Just
so a eh ingo in tho iorm of clou- s chan
ges their meaning. It is no mere chance
work, but a certain changj always means
tho s.inij thing. Jf 'cirri' turn into 'oir-ro-strati,'
every meteorologist knows
what that means just as well as the boy
tit the head of the Latin class knows tho
difference between 'Hie' and 'Ilujtis.' "
"Then the clouds aro not all of ono
"J5y uo means at all. About eighty
year.s ago, i.uko Howard, an Iinglish
.junker, whoso business required him to
take long walks in the open air, comple
ted a classification of clouds that has ev
er since been in general use. One ot
the most wonderful phenomena ever wit
nessed in the sky led Howard to study
tho clouds. This was tho great fog of
187o, that overspread the whole of liu
rope and part of Asia and Atnerica,reach
ing to the summits of the Alps and last
ing from ono to threo months, according
to tho locality. The greatest terror pre
vailed, and the end of tho world was
thought to be at hand.
"Howard noticed that there were three
principal kinds of clouds, which ho called
carrus, cumulus and stratus. Anybody
can seo the differonco between theso
clouds at n glance. Tho cirrus is the
highest of all clouds. You must have
often seen it in the form of white fila
ments, sometimes called 'mare's tails'
and 'eats tails.' Stretched across tho
blue sky liko delicate lace work, it is
very beautiful. Travelers say that on
the summit of lofty mountain peaks from
which they could look down upon tho
heavier clouds, they have seen the wispy
cirri floating overhead, apparently as
tar away as when seen irom tlio earth.
In calm summer evenings, long after
sundown, theso clouds may bo seen re
flecting tho most delicato tints of color
from tho last lays of sunlight that illu
minate tho higher regions of tho nttnos
"Iho cirri aro composed ot little crys
tals of ice. Theso clouds and their de
rivatives causo tho halos that aro some
times seen about tho sun and moon. It
was probably cirro strati that caused tho
rent display ot moon dogs and circles
recently nt Denver. Cirrus clouds
indicate both storms and clear weather,
according to tneir appearance. It thev
appear in their most delicato forms after
stormy weather, they aro a sign that
settled weather is at hand. When thev
show themselves in parallel streaks after
lair weather has lasted lor some time,
they aro tho first indication ot approach'
ing change. Cirri, when greatly tangled
and knotted, show stormy weather close
at hand. If their borders grow faint
ind indistinct, thero is rain coming.
"Cumulus clouds aro characteristic of
summer, i lie larmcrs call them thuu
der heads when they poke their smooth.
white rounded summits, glittering m the
sun like silver nbovo tho horizon, In
that form they aro tho forerunners of lo
cal thunderstorms. Theso mountainous
looking clouds sometimes actually exceed
the greatest peaks ot tho Andes or linn
alayas in size. When cumulus clouds
disappear iu a warm, pleasant day, not
very largo, distinct though son iu out
line and resembling cotton balls, they
indicate continued fair, dry weather.
On tho other hand, when they grow lar
ger, darker and more formidable lookiiu
they loretell storms. Just before a ram
they sometimes seem to throw off little
lleecv clouds around their edges, (ioetho
tho great German poet who was fond o
studying tho clouds, said that as long as
cuintilt have sharply denned borders am
a white color, a eonunuant'o of good
weather may bo expected. Cumulus
clouds often form soon after sunrise am
temper tho heat of a midsummer day. If
thev gradually .disnnnear toward evu
uing tlio weather will remain serene, but
it as thu sun goes down, they grow
darker and moro numerous, then look
out for rain. Tho cumuli aro the cap!

Cirri vary iu height from two or three
miles to six or eight.
"Tlio stratus is most common nt nigl
and in winter. Thoso long ranks c
clouds that I pointed out to you iu tho
southwest nud which show a coming
iiutiiieasi storm, uro a variety ot stratus,
ihey nlwnys appenr in tho form
stripes or broad, low curtains, covering
more or less oi ino suy. The night strat
us is lormetioi mists irom swainps.nver
and moist ground. It generally rises and
ennnges into smaii cumuli on summer
mornings. Mho other kind of stratus
appearing nt considerable heights iu the
full, winter, and curly iu spring, is, ns I
havo said, an invariable forerunner of
stormy weather.
"Theso thrco kinds of clouds do not
always appear iu their si in pi o forms.
They aro fretjticntly mingled together,
and four varieties of theso derivative
clouds havo been distinguished. Tho
cirro-cumulus consists of little roundish
white clouds, floating nt a high eleva
tion, nnd often resembling n tlock of
sheep resting upon tho bluo background
of the sky. In winter theso clouds fre
quently appear beforo a thaw. Between
summer showers they accompany in
creased heat. They aro common in dry
"Tho cirro-stratus commonly nppenrs
in shoals resembling fish in shape. Its
popular name is tho 'mackerel sky.' It
is almost a sure indication of npproach
ing stormy weather. When it settles
down into a thin veil, covering tho sky,
and making the sun and moon loot dim,
it is certain to bo followed by snow or
rain. You will seo it in that form fol
lowing thoso streaks that aro now rising
in tho southwest nud covering tho sky
beforo tho storm comes.
"Did you over see a bnttlo in the
clouds? The cirro-cumuli and cirro-strati
nre natural enemies. Tho first named is
a fair weather and tho last a foul-weath
er cloud. "When they meet as they somo
times do after a summer storm has par
tially cleared, there is a war in the sky.
Tho cloudy squadrons encounter in mid
heaven to settle tho question whether
sunshine or storm shall prevail. If the
cirro-cumuli succeed, tho weather will
clear; if the cirro-strati aro victorious,
there will be moro foul weather. It is a
war of destruction, and the battle usually
ends by tho total disappearance of one
or tho other of tho two kinds of cloud,
all assuming tho form of tho successful
"Cumulo stratus is tho grandest of all
clouds, and so it is tho appropriate lore
runner of great storms. It you ever hap
pened to go up hill to tho Hudson when
a thunder storm was gathering in the
Catskills you must havo seen this cloud
rapping on the mountain tops and hill
ing tho great peaks liko a vast curtain.

"One of the grandest sights in the

mulo-stratus clouds across a hilly coun
try district in advance of a violent storm.
Animals, as well as men, are intimidated
by tho fearful appearance of tho heavens
and show their fear by trembling ami
lurrying to places of shelter. Theso
clouds commonly make their appearance
st in tho northwest, risint? black and
threatening above the horizon. Soon
tho rtimbliiiL' of boavv thunder is be.inl.
and as the clouds annroach tho zenith,
blotting out tho sun, fitful gusts of wind
niise, followed by periods of oppressive
calm. Sometimes a whirlincr motion is
seen in tho clouds. Then look out! If a
black funnel seems to dron from tho
clouds to tho earth, it is a tornado, and
nobody can tell what damago it may do.
Tho cumulo-strati foretell-a storm sever
al hours in advance. Tho longer they
linger near the horizon the more violeut
the storm is apt to be.

clouds is the nimbus or black rain cloud,

The work of the staff of officers ap
pointed by tho Superintendent of tho
Census to collect statistics relating to tho
industries and manufactures of Now
York city is nov approaching completion
and will bIiow, in tho opinion of Mr.
Chnrlcs E. Hill, tho gentlemen in charge
of it, a very satisfactory growth b'uico
1870. In tho courso of tho Investigation
by Mr.llill's deputies somo singular in
dustries were brought to light. It was
found, for instance, that some uso was
mado of old shoes, but exactly what uso
whs hard to find out. Largo numbers of
old shoes were sold by rag pickers to cer
tain men,who disposed ot them nt a good
price. It is well Known 'that bits ot old
leather mako tho commercial articlo
known as Prussian blue, but only a few
firms manufacture it, nnd tho new call
for old shoes was evidently for some oth
er purpose. In New Yorkcitynnd Urook
lyn about three million pairs of old shoes
aro thrown away every year. Formerly
old shoes were plentiful 111 the neighbor
hood; now it appears that they aro sought
after as choice prizes in tho ragpiqker's
line. I5y dint of persvering inquiry it
was discovered that tho old shoes wore
used for threo purposes. First, all shoes
not completely worn out are patched,
greased, and after being otherwise re
generated, sold to men who deal in such
wares. Somo porsous wear 0110 shoo
much moro than tho other; these dealers
find mates for shoes whose original
mates are past hope. Secondly, tho shoes
not worth patching up arc cut into pieces'
tlio good bits aro used for patching oth
er shoes, nnd tho worthless bits, tho soles
and cracked uppers, aro converted into
.Inmaica rum by a process known only
to the manufacturers. It is said that
they aro boiled in pure spirits and allowed
to stand for a fow wecks,the product far
surpassing the Jamaica rum mado with
essonces, burnt sugar and spirits. A
gentleman who doubted the truth of this
story stopped recently at a low grogshop
in the neighborhood of tho factory spok
en of and inquired if they had any rum
from old shoes. "No," said the barkeep
er, "we don't keep it much now; tho
druggists, who want a pure article, all
sell it, nud the price has gono up. Hut
wo iiinemiu u, ununu ixiu 141:1, mi so:n
if you want it. How many old shoes
HO to a gallon of rum could not be as
T. l .11 ." .Tl 1 - .. . .
" nan oeeu uoiiceti oy some iicputtes
that while manufacturers aro quite will-
ing to put a valuation upon their manu
factured product, they hesitate about
stating the value of the raw material,and
even return the schedules with the spaca
lor tho value ot raw material left blank.
In one instance a manufacturer of toma
to catsup retuine J a report giving tho
value ot his manufactured product at
$18,000 and the vahio of his raw mater
ial as nothing. His explanation was as
follows : Every year in tin canning sea
8011 he sends to thu wholesale houses
which make a business ot canning to-
matocs clean tubs, with the understan
ing tll!lt tllc women who trim and peel
shall throw the skins and parings into
these tubs: every day the tubs are re-
moved, the stuff 111 them ground up, fer
mentcd, llavorecl and sold as tomato cat
sup to the extent of bl8,000. Another
singular and decidedly pernicious busi
ness is the manufacture on a largo scalo
of cheap candies from white earth or ter
ra alba, mixed with a little sugar and
glucose. Tho deputy who investigated
the confectionary business reports that
twenty-live per centum ot somo candies
is composed of these substances.tind such
candy, notably gum drops, contain Mill
less sugar. Iho euectot white enrth up
on the stomachs of tho unfortunate chil
dren who buy these candies is yet to bo
determined by future autopsies. "What
is called a hue brand ot caslilo soap has
been found to bo composed chiefly of
this white earth and grease, but the evil
effects of such tin imposture nre trilling
compared to the results of turning chil-
dren s stomachs into miniature pottery
works. Among the new industries which
have sprung into existence during the
last few years is the system of finishing
in this city foreign goods imported in an
11 ti finished condition. Foreign articles
composed of several paitsare now large

for hand labor being imported while
