'This will be an uncommonly cold
night," comment-d .Mm. Kh.abeth il
liers, as she wr:iiji"d aiieh scarf more
closely itbout her shoulders, and shiver
ing even as she t-tood before her cherry
grate lire. ''Kenny and IJessie, come
away from the window, my dears, you
will be quite dulled. Ami it is nine mo
curtains were disuvn ami the gas ligh
ted." "Hut the sky is so beautiful, mamma,
remonstrated Master Leronzo, who had
tho perception of an artUt. ''Where the
sun went down it is clear yellow, like
amber, and ovei head the blue is almost
black,and full of big stars that shine just
like the opal in your ring."
"What a fanciful boy you are!" smiled
his mother, who was exceedirgly fond
and proud of the handsome lad,wlio was
nearly as tall as herself.
"15ut, oh, mamma!" exclaimed little
15essie,excito lly, "here i9 somebody lying
on our steps. She must be sleeping, 1
think," concluded the pretty hulykin, with
the assumption of grave perspicacity that
is so amusing in a child.
"No doubt the person is not sleep
ing," said Mrs. Villiers, indifferently.
"But she must not be allowed to remain
there. Henny, ring for James."
Hut her impulsive young son was be
yond hearing her order, lie had already
opened the heavy outer doors, and was
btanding beside ilie still figure, ptostra
td on the granite steps.
The senseless woinan'woie a thin dress
of frayed and faded silk and a large
mantle of tlimsy material that was much
soiled and torn. Tho hood had fallen
back from a sad, winning face, and a
great mass of fair, wavy hair, lay over
her breathless bosom.
As the lad bent over her with kindly
solicitude, and gently pushed back her
loose looks, he was startled by the sight
of blood warm, red, human blood, slow
ly rolling over a wan wasted cheek from
a wound hidden beneath the malted
"She is hint. She is bleeding," he
ejaculated. "She may bo dying. She
must bo brought iu directly."
"You are much toei impetuous, my
lear boy," interposed his mother, from
tho hall. To bring her in would bo as
imprudent as Quixotic. Tho station is
the proper place for such unfortunates."
"15nt the night is so cold, and the Mil
lion is so far away," u-ged tho lad, "She
might dio before she could be taken
there. And she could do no harm in
tho kitchen, surely," he supplemented, as
if grieved by the worldly objections of
"Ami Uoou woiildn t do angry, mam
ma! was the plea oi little nessie. "Aim
then Uncle Dick is a elector, you know."
"Hut Uncle Dick may not care to bo
troubled by a patient jiiit now," said Mrs.
illieis. "However, l suppose vou
children must have your way."
And so it happened that the sultcruig
stranger was taken in, ami ur. Kichard
Villiers was summoned from his room to
The "rave, tldeilv nhvsician seemed
agitated as he looked upon his unexpeo
ted patient, and ins voice was curiously
unsteady when ho finally spoke.
"When she tell a sharp bit ot ic cut

soon heal. Her faint was caused by
cold and hunger. She is absolutely
starving, I should say," ho announced as
ho gazeil compassionately upon tlio help

"Our children's protege has a most in

"And it seems miraculous that she has
wandered here to iu," returned. Dr. Dick,
musingly. "1 know tho poor creature
soino years ago in the country. She was
an honest girl but made an unfortunate
marriage. Suppose you persuade hr to
st iy with you for a tune, Elizabeth?"
The lady marveled a little', but sho did
not demur, for sho was charitably dis
posed and had great eouMdcration for
tho wishes of the brother of her dead
Mowovei', she herself felt a benign in
terest for the girl who was so mrely
homeless and evidently friendless and
who, us weeks and months passed, assum

admonished her liMpi'i-dl'ivo little logician.
"Make your apologies, dear, to Nelly,
mid then go with your brother. Tlio po
mes havo come."
For some moments Nelly stoo 1 by tho
window looking at tho young people, who
were eanteiing gleefully down tho
Nelly was remarkably pretty, ami had
a ccitmn simple elegance of manner and
speech that 'as veiy pleasing.
"She is always tlio saine,"Mrs. Villiers
had once observed to her brother-in-law.
"Sho is always calm and patient, thought
ful for others, and wonderfully sweet
tempered. Ono could never believe any

of aspect and a wistful apprehensive ex

"Of what may you be thinking,Nell)?"
she iioried,in a jocose lone of the young
woman, who still stood by tho window,
gazing out absently into blankness.
She sjartod, seemed irresolute for an
instant, and then went slowly over to her
"I was thinking," she answered with
a tremulous accent, "of your goodness lo
ine ; how kind all of you havo been to
me and how you havo all trusted me."
Sho hesitated and then continued,
"And that the tune has come when 1
must tell you something dreadful for

"Do not distress yourself unneces
sarily, Nelly," C'iuneletl Mrs. Villiers,
kindly. "No ibui'it oil have innde mis
takes and know i s riows, as wo all must
do. rhateer you think light and best
to tell me, dear, say i.i o'ir own time
"I am as grat- ful for your considera
tion as I am sure of your sn:p d by,"
said Nelly, moro cheerfully. "Vou al
ready know that my inariiago was a mis
take, and that ho whom I wedded was
not an honorable man," she proceeded,
shuddering and reluctant. "Hut you
havoneitherlieardiiorsurmised the worst.
I was an orphan, without any kindred
whatever, when I nut Kuftis Wynne,
whom I did not believes wicked, although
I knew he had been wild, and that his
reputation was not enviable'. I knew,
toei, that he was faulty ; that he could be
unreasonably jealous; that ho was not
truthful, and that ho had a fierce temper.
Hut I fancied that my wifely influence
and his affection for mo would remedy
these defects. Ah ! but my hopes were
delusions; my reasoning was as fallacious
as fond. Not a year after my marriage
1 had become the most pitiful of crea
tures an ui luvjd, neglected and abused
wife. He no longer even affected the
suppositious graces that had won me,
and ho jeered at my misery anil horror
when I beheld his character in its evil
and hideous rcali'y."
Tho unhappy Nelly paused and hid
her face that was hot with shame.
"Hut iu all this,dear, you wcre.and aro
blameless," averred her companion con
solingly. "There aro many who wouhl not be
lievo so," protested tho girl sorrowfully.
"There aro not a few who contend that
a wife must always be the cause or the
accessory of her husband's wrong doi.ig.
There are those who would not hold
blameless the most innocent of all wom
en if she wero the wife of one whose vo
cation is theft and such is the calling
of the man who still pursues and claims
me, comnfnnds and threatens me.
Elizabeth llhers was shocked and
troubled. As sympathetic and magnani
mous, and fond of the girl as she was
sho would scarcely have liked so uiide-
irablo an individual as Kufus Wynne to
cross her threshold, oven in peaceful pur
suit of his wife; and ho wasoueto bring
lisquiet instead ol peace, and gloom in
stead of gavctv.
You are', indeed, unfortunate, she
responded, soberly. "Hut you have some
serious reason lor tolling me inese tilings
have you not?"
"Unhappily I have," assented Nelly, "a
decidedly serious reason. You do not
apprehend, perhapsthat he so persistent
lollows and asserts his rights oniv mat
ho may force me to become his accom
plices but 1 desire to avoid all useless
fetalis. Ami sho had, indeed, omitted
lisereetly all irrelevant incidents of her

The Jjtk Itnliliit or Texas.
Tiio jack rabbit is an inhabitant of
Texas and of soino other Western States,
lie is often called the "mule eared rab
bit," and, by tlio cowboy, is familiarly
spoken of as the "nniley." He is not a
rabbit at all. A rabbit is :m unobstiiic
tive little aniiutl who U found by school
boy iu a bnlo iu the ground at the end of
a long Hack in the snow. The so-called
jack-iabbit is quite a different kind of
soup-meat. Ho is Mrtitieal with the
Hiitish hare, except ih.it ho is l.t g r, his
color brighter and his eais inueh'l'inger.
His avereiupois is about si.t. en pon ids,
and his ears mea-urc, from t i , t tip,
about sixteen inches. He ii s under
cover of u lui'io'i of prairie gr.is", li it is
very .seldom luiind at bom", his cilice
hours between sunset and sunns.'. Ik
is lo bo found, during tin- il iy on the
open praliie, where he ft !s em' the ten
der shoots of the mosquito or sigo-grass.
He is not a ferocious animal, as' a stran
ger might bo led to suppose from an ex
amination of what purports lo bo his pic
Hire, under the alias of "Tho Texan
Hare," in Governor Huberts' book. Tho
jack-rabbit lias several enemies, among
them the cow-boy, who spots him with
his rille ; tho coyote and the dog, that
try to run him down, and tlio Governor
of Texas, above alluded to, who libels
him in his book. Ho has two ways of
protecting himself against his enemies.
One way is to squat, when he suspects
dangcr.and fold his ears along his sides.
By eloing this lie often escapes observa
tion, as only his back is exposed, the
color of which hatmonizes with the
brown of the withered grass. The other
plan, that lie uses when discovered and
pursued, is to create remoteness between
himself and pursuer. In giving his
whole attention to this matter, -when
necessary, he is a stupendous succes and
earnest to a fault. When elislurbo 1 he
unlimbcrs his long legs, unfurls his long
ears, nnei goes off with a bound. He
generally stops after running about a
hundred varels and looks back to see if
his pursuer is enjoying the chase as much
as he thought lie would, and then he
leaves for parts unknown. There aro
many fast things, from an ice boat to a
note maturing iu the bank, bul nothing
to equal the jack-rabbit. An unfounded
rumor gets around pretty lively, but
could not keep up with" him for two
blocks. When an ordinary cur dog tries
to expedite a jack-rabbit gait he makes!
a humiliating failure of it.
He only gives tho rabbit gentle exer
cise. The rabbit merely throws up his
ears, and, under easy sail, skims leisurely
along, tacking occasionally to give tlio
funeral procession timo to catch up. But
if you wish to see velocity, urgent speed,
and precipitated haste, you havo only to
turn loosu a greyhound iu tlio wake
of a jack.rabb'ft. Pursued by a
givyhouiid In will "let himself but"
in a manner that would astonish a pre
pVid half rate message. If ho be a rab

I'l'fntan easy puup, but as he turns to

uo an ordinary yellow dog, ho realizes
that there is a force iu nature hitherto
unknown to him, and his look of aston
ishment, alarm and disgust as lie furls
his ears and promptly declines tlio nom
ination, is amusing. Under such eirctim
stances no "oes too last lor the eve to

optical illusion of a streak of jack-rabbit

Coal In the United Slates
Tho census of 18S0 shows that tho de
cade past is less remarkable for tho in
crease of tlio country in population, largo
as that has be en, than for the growth of
our material development. In mining,
manufacturing, the production of cereals
nud cotton, in the oxtentions of our iail
road system and tho increased cultivation
of tho soil, our progress during the last
ten years.has been something marvelous.
There is no belter illustration of this than
the single ease of our coal production, as
shown in tho recent bulletins issued by
the Census Ollice.
Tho returns are yet incomplete, cover
ing only tlio region oast of the 100th
meridian. In this region bituminous
coal is obtained in eighteen States and
niithraeito in two. the total product of
bath for 18S0 is seventy ono million tons
for 1870, which is an increase of
percent. Of thu anthracite coal 0,170
tons were produced in Uhodo Island and
the remainder, 18,010,819 tons, were
mined in that portion of Pennsylvania
east of tho .Susquehanna Hiver. Tlio
production for 1870 was 15,00 1,'75 tons,
which makes the increase in 1831
per cent. The bituminous product
shows the much larger increase of 1 17
percent., or from 17,100,000 tons in
1870 to l:,.120,000 tons in 1880.
Tho grand total production for 1880
of seveiify-ono million tons, is less than
one-half the production of the Fnglish
collieries for the samo period, anil is
about equal to the English production
in 18."). Tho output in England for
1880 was l(;i,.:Si;,000 of our shoit tons,
which was tons for eacli inhabitant,
while this country produced 1.1 tons
per capita. An important difTerenoj is
however, that while our coal supply is
yet scarcely touched, the English pro
duction lias probably leached its great
est development, and more or less appre
hension is already felt there that their
coal beds aro approaching exhaustion.
At the rato of increase in tho eoal pro
duct of this country in the last eleeado
we promise soon to ovei take that of
England. The ratio of increase in the.
last ten years was four times that of tho
increase in population. Tho very gen
eral substitution of coal far wood iu this
period will account for a largo portion
of the increase, but the great growth of
our manufacturing industries is tlio chief
factor in the greatly increased demand
The single State of Pennsylvania not
only produces all but an unimportant
li action ot the anthracite coal, but threo
times as much bituminous coal as any
other single State. Its product for 1830
was eighteen million tons, or more than
was produced in tho whole United
States in 1870. Tho coal product of
Peniis lvania, both bituminous and an
thracite, in 1880 is just seven-ninths of
the entire stock of eoal produced in the
United States during that year. Tlio
second coal State is Illinois, and after it
Ohio and Maryland in order. West
Virginia, Indiana and Iowa each produc
ed between one and two million tons,
and some half dozen other States make
a respectable showing. Tho immense
coal deposits in West Virginia, Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Alabama and through
out the West, remain almost untouched
a i ieli rcsei voir of infinite power and
unlimited wealth fur future generations.
Iluw a Liille Olrl Suggested I lie Invention
(if Hie Ti'li'seape.
Some of tho most important discover
ies havo been made accidentally; and it
as happened to more than one inventor,
ho had long been searching alter some
new combination or material lor carry
ing out a pet idea, to hit upon tho right
thing at last by mere chance. A lucky
instance of this kind was tlio discovery
of the principle of tho telescope.
-Neatly three hundred years ago, there
,'as living in the town ot Aliililelburg.
on the island of Walcheren, in the Neth
erlands, a poor opticau named Hans
.ippersheini. One dav, in tlio year
1008, he was working iu 1 its shop, his
children hoiping him in various small
ways, or romping about and amusing
themselves with tlio tools and objects
lying ou his work-bench, when suddenly
ins little gin exclaimed:
"Oh Papa! See how near tho steeple
comes: Halt startled by tins announce
iiKiit, tho honest Hans looked up from
his work, em ions to know tho child's
iinazemoiit. I iirning toward her, he
saw that sho was lookintr tin onh two
eases one held close to her eye', and tho
other at aim's length; and, calling his
daughter to his side, ho u sliced that the
eye lens was plauocoucl ive, (or flat on
one side and bulging on tho other.)
Th'Mi, taking the two glasses, ho repeat-
1 h.s dauorhter s experiment, and soon
liscovered that she had chanced to hold
the lenses apart at their exact focus, and
this bad produced the wonderful effect
she had observed. His quick wit and
skilled invention saw in this accident a
wonderful eli eoverv. He immediate ly
set about nuking use of his knowledge
of lenses, and ere long ho had fashioned
i tubj ol pasteboard, in which beset tho
glasses firmly at their exact focus.
This rough tube was the germ of that
great instrum.iit tlio telescope, to which
modern science owes so much. And it
wis on October '.'I'nel, 1008, that I.ip
persheim sent to bis goverumet three tel
eseopes made by binisell, calling thoni
"instruments iv means ot which to seo
at a dhtinco."

Incob Adrians., or M tins, of Alkmaar,

Two gentlemen of Now Orleans, after
