There's not a human heart but feels At limes a longing for tho past, When Homo fond memory o'er It steals, And some old spell U round It cast, It may be some forgotten bliss That filled and thrilled It long ago ; A dither's smllo a mother's kiss, A hitter's lovo th it made It glow. Perhaps, In happier days gone by, A deeper love was then enshrined, Which gao a lustro to tho cje, An Impulsi) to tho youthful mind i 'Till like a llower loo early chilled, The don rone pined and passed away, And anguish deep that bo-)m Illled, Which lovo had thrilled u brighter dy.

TOM'S 0H0I0E, Wuhiul iust linishuil hrertkfast. Tom lititl down the uLC-spoon lio hail been playing with iiiul lookptl nuross at mother. "Aunt Anne, I think I'll take a wife," lio siiitl, exactly in ho mirht have said, 1 think 1 11 tuko aiiutliiToni ot coiiec. "Take a wife'?" reiii'iUed mother, by no means lueeiving the, in formation us tranquil as it hail 'been given. "What tur'f "Well, I don't know," answered Tom, thoughtfully. "It's a notion I've got iu my head somehow. . "All noii!.uiise ! sain mother snaipiy. "Do you think so?" said Tom, appar ently doubtful, but not in the least put out. "Think so. I know it. What in tho world can you want of a wife? After all these years we have lived so com- l'irtalilv together to linnj' home some body to turn the house upside down ! Ami then, what is to come of that poor child " Tho "poor child" that wax I red dening at being brought into tho argu ment in this way, was about to speak fur herself, when loin interposed, warmly. "1 in suio .May knows 1 wouitl never liavo any wife who would mako it le?s a home for her don't you May 1" "1)1 coiiim', saitl J. "Ami I'm Hiui' she knows nothing cf tho sort," persisted mother, "nor you, either, Tom Dean. How can you an t-wer fur what a wife may lake it into her head to do, mice you get her tixeil hero 7 You can't expect her to forget, iw you do, that May has no real claim on you. "i hat 1 have no real claim on her, 1 suppose you mean, ma am, loin put in lor a second tune, just as 1 was thor oughly iineomfoi table. ''I'mt, for all that, I intend to help her that is," added Tom, with one of his short-sighted blinks sideways nt me, "as long as she'll stay with me, eh, Mary t And whoever ha, anything to say against that arrangement will have to go out of my lini'o to say it not that I'm uliaiil ot any such result in this case aud, one the whole, Aunt Anne, I should liko to trv the experiment." Mother smiled m'iuilv, but Tom was so evidently bent on his "experiment," as ho ealloii it, that sho gave up the nr "iiiiient." "Vou can diineo if you aro ready to pay the piper," she said shortly. "Anil pi ay, how soon tlo you mean to bo mar ried r Tom's fiusu IVll a little, at this ques tion. "Well," said he, "I can't say exact , 1 suppose we'll have to be eimat'eti first." "What !" said mother, opening her eyes; "why, you never mean to say, Tom, you haven't spoken to her yet?' "iSotyet, answered I inn, cheerluly, 'Time enough for that, you know, af ter I had spoken to you,' "Well," she said, "if it was anybody else, I should say ho was cracked; but you were never liko other people, and 'never will be, Tom Dean. Hut. at least, you havo fixed upon tho lady f " un, yes," jausivereti Tomj "but it you will excuso me, Aunt Anne, I would rather not say an) tiling about her just yet i for if if anything should happen it wouldn't bo pleasant for either party, you know.'' With which veiled allusion to hU possible rejection, Tom took his hat and left tho room. Our household was rather queerly put together. There is no paiticular reason why 1 should havo been of it at all, lor 1 was not really related to Tom, or even to "mother," in I called her, though 1 nin sure wo were as dear to each as any mother or daughter could be. She was tho second wifo of my father, who, liko most ministers, had been richer iu graco than In goods, ami loft us at his death with very little to live on. Then it was that Tom Dean had eonio forward and insisted on giv ing a hoiuu to his aunt and to ine, whom ho hail soaieely seou a do.on limes in his life before, That was ex- nctly like Tom "queer Tom Dow," as his friends were fond of saying, "who never did anything liko anybody else" I suppose, In spite of his clear head for business, there U no denying that ho was whimsical; but I am sure, when I think of hU unfailing generosity and delicacy, I can't help wishing there were a few more such whimsical people in the woild. Naturally, at tho time I am speaking of, my opinion had not been asked; all I had to do was to go where mother went, and, while sho gave her energies to tho housekeeping, give minu to growing up, which by this time I had pietty well accomplished. Hut perhaps for that very reason for ono sees with different eyes at 12 and 18 for my posititin in tho house had already begun to seem unsatisfactory to me; autf the morning's words put it in a clearer light, since it bad been used as an argument against Tom's marrying. I knew that mother had spoken honest ly, believing that such a step would not be (or his happiness; but was he not the best judge of that? I know him, if reflection should bring him round to her opinion, to be pel fedly capable of quietly sacrificing iiis own wishes for ely sake, who lutd not the shadow of a maim on him; so it must be my part to prevent his own kindness being turned against him now. Still, it was not so easy to sec how I was to provide for myself in case it should become advis able. What could I do ? Draw and sing aud play tolerably, but not in a manner to compete with tho hosts that would be in the fields ngainst me. Iit eratuioT 1 had read so many stories whose heroines, with a turn ot the pen, dashed into wealth and fame. That wouitl bo very nice, only 1 was not the least bit literary; I had never even kept a journal, which is saying a great deal for a girl iu her teens. The "line arts," then, being out of tho question for me, what a remainder! Thero was some clerkship, or a place in some fam ily, and and there was Will Hroom le'y! That may seem like going away from the point, hut it was not. I was matter-of-fact, but I could see well enough what was going on right under my eyes, and I had a pretty clear idea of what was bringing Will to the house o often us he had taken to coming late ly. Thero Was a "situation" then that would give mo the homo lite I liked best, and felt myself best suited for; but would it answer in other respects? I overcast tho long seam I was sowing twice over, I was bo busy trying to make up niymind whether Hiked Will Hroomley well enough to pass iny whole life with him; and even then I had not come to any decision, when I was called down stairs to Letty Wal ters. Letty was tho prettiest, I think, of all my friends, and certainly tho liveliest, Tom called her "the tonic," and used to laugh heartily at her bright speeches. I stipposo it was this that made mother fix on Letty as his choice. When I came into the sitting room I found a kind of cross-examination going on. It was amusing to anybody in tho secret, as I was, to watch mother's artful way of continually bringing the conversation round, as if by chance, to bear on what she wanted to know. Hut it all amount ed to nothing, either because Letty was too good a fencer, or because sho really had nothing to betray. Hut, when Tom came home, mother took care to men tion that Letty had called. "What, the tonic ?" saitl Tom. "Too bad I missed." "Hut for your choice being already made," said mother, with a covert scrutiny of his face, "I dare say you might have as much of the tonic as you liked " "Hut I go on the homupathio princi ple, you know," answered Tom, with a twinkle in his eye. After that mother's belief in Letty's guiltiness wavoml. Her suspicions were transferred from one to another of our acquaintance, but always with the saint) unsatisfactory result. "It passes my comprehension," sho said to me desparingly ono day. "I am positive I could tell the light opo by Tom's faco in a minute, and yet I havo mentioned everybody we know." "Perhaps it is somebody wo don't know," I suggested; "some friend of his we have never seen." "What! a perfect stranger?" said my mother, sharply. "Never talk to me, child; Tom's nut capable of that." I was silent, for I did not want to worry her; but that wits my opinion all tho same. Tho sumo evening it was rather more than a week sinco Tom had hurl ed that thunderbolt of his at us moth er beijan about it openly. "When are you going to introduce your wifo to u, Tom? I suppose you have coma to an understanding by this time." "Oh, there's no hurry," Tom said, as he had said before, but this time did not speak quite so cheerfully. "Tho fact is," ho continued, "there there's a rival iu the case." 'A rival!" repeated mother, with un feeling briskness, "Yes, a yoiinu fellow younger by a good deal than I am," and Tom's face assumed an absurdly doleful look, "He is always there now, I confess I don't see my way clear; I'm waiting for her to make up her mind." 'Ami she's waiting, most likely, for you to make up jours,'' said mother, forgetting iu her propensity to right matters, that sho was playing the ene my's game. 'There's something in that that nov or occurred to me," said Tom, his faco brightening. Mother saw her mistake, and made a counter move at once. "Hut the ways of my timo aro old fashioned now; young ladies, nowadays, tako matters into their own hands. If she cares for you, you nny bo pretty suro she would n't havo waited till this timo to let you know ittliat is, I judge by tho girls 1 am in tho habit of seeing; but if this ono is a stranger to mo " (hero mother riveted her eyes ou Tom's face; oh, dear, my unfortunate words "if she is an entire stranger, I cannot pretend to form nny opinion of her, of courso." "Of course," replied Tom, absently. "Not that 1 havo any such idea," ro. sinned mother, Krowincr warmer. "I Iiavo said, nntl may say again, that to uriug a perieci stranger minor this roof Is not mv opinion of vou. Tom." 1 I felt mother's words like so many pins and noodles; for Tom was lookltio meditatively across nt me. and. thnuurli that was just a way of his, it seemed now as if ho wero reading in my face that tho opinion was mIiio nud that I ine concern mo. I felt myself, for Very vexation, getting redder every moment, till it grew Intolerable. "It is so warm hero," I said for an excuse, turning toward tho French window. "I am going to get a breath of air," I went out Into our little strip of garden ground; Tom followed. I thought I should never havo a better opportunity to say what I had to say, so I waited for him by the bench under the old pear trco. "Sit down here, Tom," I said, "I havo something to say to you." "Ilnvoyou?" said Tom; "that's odd, for I well, never mind that just yet. What is it, Mav? "Tom," I safd, still surer now he had misjudged me, and more resolved to set him right, "I want a place." "A place?" repeated Tom, puzzled, as well he might ho by this sudden and indefinite announcement; "what kind of a place?" "I don't know," I said, for indeed, my ideas were of the vagueit. "I thought you might, being in tho way of those things. Now, pray, Tom," I went on quickly, "don't fancy I am dis contented or anything of that sort. The truth is, ever since I loft off school I hayo wanted t something to do, and had it in my mind to speak to you about it." With this I looked at Tom, fearing ho might bo vexed; but ho did not look vexed; only preoccupied. "1 tlo know ot a place, as it happens, .said, aftor a while, "only I'm not ro how it would suit you." ho suro .t.vi, uuu DVVH, DltiU Jt If lltllO it like?" "Well, it's a sort of of general use fulness " "Why, it must be to run errands," said I, laughing "And where is it, Tom ?" "Well," said Tom, hesitating again, "its with inc." "How very nice 1" I exclaimed. "How soon can I havo it?" "The sooner tho better, so far as I am concerned," said Tom, and with that he tinned and looked at me, and direct, ly 1 met his eyes I know somehow, all in a moment, what it was ho meant: ami I knew, too, both that I could not have passed all my life with Will Hroomley, and why I could not. I am suro Letty Walters, who inter rupted us just then, must havo thought my wits were wandering that evening, and, indeed, they were; for I was com pletely dazed with this sudden turn tilings had taken. Hut Tom, who had the advantage of me there, took it quite cooly and laughed and talked with Let ty just tho same as over till she wont away. It was pretty lato when wo went in. Mother sat where we had left her, knit ting in tho twilight. "Wasn't that Letty Walters with you a while ago?'' she said as wo came in. "Yes," saitl I, with a confused feeling of an explanation or something being necessary; "sho just camo to bring the now crochet pattern she promised me.'' "H'm 1" said mother, as much as to say sho had her own ideas as to what Letty came for. Tom had been wandering about the room in an absent sort of fashion, tak ing up and putting down in the wrong places all the small objects that fell in his way. He came up and took a seat by his mother. I became of a sudden very busy with the plants in the win dow, for I know ho was going to toll her. "Wish nio jo', Aunt Anno," said ho, "it's all settled' "Settled, is it ?" said mother in aivy thing but a joyful tone. "So it's as I suspected all along. Well, you havo my best wishes, Tom; perhaps you may bo happy after all; I'm sure I hope so." This wasn't a very encouraging sort of congratulation and Tom seemed tak Qftrtfl cnnii " am1 T ItWMint la en aback by it. "I'm sorry you aro uot pleased," ho said, after a pause; "I had an idea somo- how you would be. "I did not know from what you indir- ed. Hut, there, it's no use crvincr over spilled milk. You'll bo married direct ly, 1 presume. 1 must bo looking for a house," and mother stroked her nose reflectively with a knitting needle. "What for? said Tom; "J thought of keeping on heie all tho same." "1 never suspected otherwise, said mother. "Of courso I did not expect to turn you out of your own house." "Hut what is the need of looking out for another then?" "Why, for myself." "Kor yourself?" repeated Tom in a tonu of utter amazement. "CJoing to leavo us just now ? Why, Aunt Anne, 1 never heard of such n thing. "Now. Tom,' said mother, speaking very fast, and making her needle fly in concert, "wo might as well come to an understanding at onco ou this subject. I am fully sensible of your past kind ness now just let me finish I say I appreciate it, aud have tried to do my duty by you in return, as I hope I Bhould bo always ready to do. I wish an goon to you and your wife, anil shall bo glad to help her if I can, but to livo in the samo house with her is what would turn out pleasantly for neither ouo of us, and, oneo for all, I can't do it. "Aunt Anne," said Tom. mishinrr back his chair and staring in mother's excited face, "either you or I must bo out of our wits." "It's not ine, then, st any rate.'' re torted mother, getting nettled. Amusement and a certain embarrass ment had kept mo a silent listener so tar, but there was no staudint: this: I niv.il iu sjiuiin, uut cuttiii nut, luriatlgll "I think you aro all out of your wits n.uu iuuuilt, muting suui piy. it nni nus mo oiiiiu v it s no laughing matter. "You don't understand each other." i gasped; "oh, tlearl it s not Letty of oh, dear!'' and relapsed niraln. "Not Letty? repeated mother, turn- ingto iom, "then why did you tell mo so i "I never told you so," Bitid Tom. "Why, yes you did," persisted niotl er. "You camo in nnd told mo you wero going to bo married." "Yes, so I am," said Tom, still at croas-purposes. "Now, Tom Dean," Bald mother ris ing and confronting him, "what do you meant Who is irolnu to bo vour wife?'' "Why, May, of course," answered Tom. "May 1" ami thou, aftor a nauso of 4 liioxprcssiblo astonishment, it was moth- er's turn to laugh. "Do you mean to say, Tom, it was that child you wero think- ng of all the while?'' "Why, who else could It bo ?" said Tom. Sharply, "Well, said mother, "I ought to isivo remembered vou never did do any thing liko anybody else. Hut, still, why in the world ditl you go to work in such a roundabout way ?" "i wanted to seo how you took to my ilea," said Tom. "And how do you suppose wo wero to guess your ido'a meant May?" moth er asked. "Who else could it bo?" repeated Tom, falling back ou what ho evident ly found unanswerable argument. It was no use talking to him. Mother gave it up with a shako of tho head. "And you won t want another house, hen. Anno?" said Tom. suddenly. That set mother off again; Tom joined wun nor, and altogether I dont' think wo ever passed a merrier cvcniiiL' than tho one that made us acquainted with Tom's wife. How we Digest. To make the process of ditrestion simple, let mo say that It begins in tho mouth and ends in the liunrs. A man swallows a mouthful of bread. Wo folio it down tho lesophatrtis to his stotnash. It now. bv a peculiar motion of tho stiiinach, and ns it touches here and there, gastric juice starts out, liko sweat upon the forehead, and wets tho bread. After a couple of hours rcvolviinr about within the stomach, tho bread is changed into something that looks ike buttermilk. This is chvme. Now tho gate at tho riuht end of the stom ach opens and lets this chvmo nass throuiih the (list parts of the intestine. There two new liquids aro poured in, ono from the liver tho bile tho other from the pancreas tho pancreatic uice. These induce certain changes n tho litiiiid bread which makes it re semble milk. Now it is called chvle. Innumerable little mouths, which open within tho intestine, suck up this milk or chyle, carrying it to a small canal ami thoracic duct which lies upon the backbone, and through it runs up tho upper part of the chest and is poured into a larixo vein iust under the left collarbone. Through this vein it reaches the right side of tho heart, and is tlion forced into the lungs, when it coined in contact with the air. Now a wonderful change comes over it. This is produced by the addition ot oxygon to tho milk like fluid. For a given quantity of this chyle, a still larger quantity of oxygen is added, and the compontid which comes of this union between the bread and tho oxygen is the nutriment which supplies tho wants of tho system. What takes place in lungs is more important than anything that precedes it, iu the process of di geslion. l'or example, a man may live on fried salt pork, hot saleratus biscuit and strong green tea (I don't know of a worse dose), if he lives on the West ern plains and breathes pure air, he will have a purer blood, healthier skin and will bo freer from humors, than another man who lives upon the choic est grains and fruits, but who constant ly breathes the air of a close, furnace heated house. In other words we may truly say that, in considering the great tuuction ot digestion, tho lungs really play a more important part than the stomach itself. It is really vital that tho first and last step in digestion should be well Llone. I' ust, chew well, and last breathe well. If those two duties aiu well performed, a substantial contribu tion will bo made to our welfare. Jlv Dr. Dio Xmcis. A nusband's Preparations. The other morning when a Detroiter seated his wifo in a car on the Miohi- au central to mako tho iouruey to Chicago alono he took a look around him and said to her; "Now, love, if you should want the window raised hero aro a dozen gentle- nen who will break their necks to ac commodate vou."

Oil Scouts. When an operator goes into an unde veloped field nnd puts down a test well ho naturally desires to havo tho profit of his riek. It costs him something liko SG.OOO to put down that wildcat well, for which, in most cases, ho gets no return, for the majority of wildcat wells produce nothing. If ho finds a rich sand, however, nnd can keep it a secret for n while, ho has a fortuno in his hands. Ho can sell oil short, knowing that when it is known that a now field has been discovered the price will go down. His most direct oppor tunity, however, is to lease the land in tho neighborhood of his well, to bo sold again at an enormous profit as soon its it is known that it is productive terri tory. So ho gunrds his secret with every npplianco he can invent. His most dangerous enemies aro tho "scouts." They arc paid to discover whnt ho is trying to conceal. Almost every prominent oil broker has a "scout" regularly employed to keep him posted on tho latest doings at tho front. 'Daring, cautious, patient, untiring, unscrupulous, and honest, the scout must add to the experience of a driller the subtle judgment of a broker and the keenness of an operator. In the shadows of tho night he cams his salary lurking about in tho neighbor hood of a now well out of gunshot of tho guards about derrick ; lying often in tho snow or in the swamp for hours with his uoso and ears stretched above tho shelter of some friendly log to catch the smell of gas or the gurgle of flowing oil ; sneaking up to the tank houso to get a peep in it possible; watching tho motion of tho walking beam ami estimating the depth of tho tools thereby ; ready to bribe a driller or exchange "shots with a guard at a moment's notice. IIo sometimes spends weeks watch ing ono particular well. 11c studies the habits of tho men working on it, notes if any of them aro likely to suc cumb to tho temptation of his brandy flask, jots down the hours when each one takes his nap, marks which way their faco3 are mostly turned in thoir rounds, and if ho catinut court thur favor, doviscs somo scheme to get in side their guard and at their secret. In tho gray ot tho morning ho rules away to the nearest telegraph ollico and com municates with his employer before tho market opens. It is a mystery when he sleeps. Alnust any time of the day io may bo seen loitering noout wner- over there is a crowd, picking up ac quaintance with the few drillers ho Iocs not already know. The emoluments of tho work are oc- casionly of a size to compensate for any iimount ot hardship, l'or instance: "Si" Hughes, who got the Anchor oil company a pointer on 610, has been taken into the company with the ollico of superintendent and a cloar tenth of their profits. His spring's work will net him not less than S1."0,000 ; but there is a well-defined path circling through tho woods around G-tC, worn by tho leet ot those who worked as hard as ho and got nothing but their salaries, llow Hughes got his itifor niation is still a mystery. IIo is said to claim that he lay under tho derrick for nineteen consecutive hours, but tho prevailing impression is that ho bought tho secret lrom one ot tho guanis. In the course of an experience ineet ng the other evening with Captain Peter Grace, one of tho men who put down tho CIO well in this district, lio told me the true story of the mystery. Much has been written about it, more probably than was ever printed about in oil well be I ore, but tho captain told mo a lew tilings winch wero now. This wonderful Cherry Grove district owes its development to tho misfortune of George II. Dimmick. IIo had been wieeked financially over in the Coal creek legion, and Captain Grace s"t him to work out this way rather to give him a chance to recover than irom any other motive. Land could be leased for a dollar an acre, and tho experiment was not very costly. "When the tools broke through the shell of the sand about 10 o'clock on the morning on tho 1 1 th of March," said Captain Grace, "wo know wo had touiid wealth. The oil filled up a bun ked feet before wo could get the tools out. The pressure on us was tremen dous Wo drove a tight fitting wood en plug !l feet long to the bottom cf thu well, poured the hole full of oil, screwed iu the casing head, anil set tho tools, which weigh not loss than a ton, on top of it. Even then when the well flowed it blew tho casing head off and sent the tools a Hying up tho derrick. "Ono trick wo played to dicehe the scouts I think has nover got into print. I took a torpedo man into a room in the hotel at Warren ono day very mysteriously, but took good caro to havo a scout "seo 'me do it. Of courso thu scout immediately hid him self iu tho adjoining room. I told tho shooter, with my voice trembling, that I had put my last dollar into tho Gift venture and had found no oil.

Well, wc went out with a nnike-beliovo torpedo fiil ed th wnter. The scouts wero at our heels, of course, and watched every motion. Wo went to tho well iu tho dead of night, and thero went through the lorin of shooting the well so accu rately that even thu guards about thu well wero deceived. The noxt morn ing thoy complained that tho smell of dynamite had given them tho headache. Sharp as they were, tho scouts wore all taken iu and did not find out tho trick until weeks afterward. llradford Stttr. ii'.si'isi:i.
