ly exclaimed the warm-hearted washer
Mrs. Currier hastened up stairs to
make her street toilet. Her sweet face
wore a sad, thoughtful expression. She
somehow felt ns though sho must go
and sec this Mrs. Lovell; she seemed to
bo forced onward bv a power far
stronger than her generosity of heart,
than her charitable inclinations. Airs.
Currier was a very benevolent lady,
and took a pleasure in administering to
the poor. It was only one year since
she had graduated from a fashionable
boarding school mid became tho wife
of Henry Currier, a millionaire, who
took his lovely and accomplished brido
to his elegant homo in the metropolis.
r 1 .
iiirs. turner soon nccamo a society
favoi ite, and yet she sought out tho
poor and distressed, trying to alleviate
their trials and wants with so much
earnestness anil deep feeling that one
would almost imagine that sho had
some time in the course of her short
life dwelt in the midst of poverty and
wretchedness. But it was only her
natural innate goodness that made her
remember her duty to the unfortunate
while she enjoyed all the luxuries that
wealth could secure.
It was a bright, lovely morning in
April, 187-'. Nature had donned her
rich garments of tinted greens, and
somo of Flora's offerings had come to
'.addon the eyo and pcrfumo the air.
The shade trees that were scattered
hero and there imparted to tho crowded
city an air of almost rural freshness,
anil tho beauty of the Httlo parks re
called to tho passers-by the charm of
rusticating country rambles, rippling
brooks, and tho sweet seclusion of
groves musical with tho love notes ot a
thousand feathered songsters.
It was not long before tho fashiona
ble lady and favorite child of fortune
was picking her way through one of
uio uiruesi. siieets in an woutum
Bridget led the way upon arriving
at the dingy abode. Tho steps were
broken, and the basement room con
tained only ono small window. The
soft spring never entered this wretched
place where liltli reigned supreme, in
a corner of the room, lying upon an old
straw bed, was a woman, who looked
so pale, so ethereal, with her bright
'olden hair Jailing over her alabaster
iiko shoulders, that Mrs. Currier gazed
in wonderment upon tho beautiful sleep
Biidgot crossed herself and softly
whispe.ied. "The poor ereatur', she's
dead, lor sure.
A few rays of sunlight now stole in
to the dingy cellar through the door
that the visitors had left partly opened,
anil seemed to timidly creep along tho
stone lloor up to the siiffurer and expos
ed moro vividly her pallid tace.
Mrs. fJurrier wiped her eyes, but the
tears would come. She gazed around
tho room no sign of comfort was
there The place had the appearance
ol a cave, and the dimly heard noises
of tho great city seemed like tho dis
tant roar of tho ocean.
Tho invalid moved nnd opened her
great blue eyes. Mis. Currier stepped
u little back nnd motioned for Bridget
to advance to tho bed
"How do ye fale now?" asked the
washerwoman, in a pitiful lone of voici-.
"Tho same,'' answered Mrs. Lovell,
again opening her eyes.
"I'vo brought somebody who'll bo a
menu to yees, said lindget.
"I need no friends," answered Mrs.
Mrs. Currier now approached tho rick
woman, and taking her thin hand into
nor solt palm, said, in a gentle, sisterly
"You aro very ill, and 1 have come
hero to befriend you, to havo you re
moved, it possible, to a cointorta' lo
Tho sick woman opened her oyes and
earnestly gazed at Mis, Curlier. A faint
sinilo played around her delicately
lornu'd mouth; she raised her right
hand, and slowly galheiing up her
golden hair, in a low voice said:
"It Is too lato to nuke mo comfoiia
hie, hut I thank you fur coining, l'leaso

.Mrs. Currier was somewhat staitled
on hearing this strange rcimcnt, and.
glancing at tho beautiful tresses, she
"It seems a pity to cut olf your love

"I am dono with it. O, how proud I

pressed her hands together and suids

"Uul oil my h.ur lirst plense, nnd

Mrs. Currier took tho scissors from
the stand and gathered up tho rich
tresses. Her eyes filled with tears; sho
hesitated, und holding the scissors half
open, she feelingly asked:
"J )o you really wish mo to cut oit
"I do, answered Airs, ijoveii, nriniy.
"There it is off, and I nm sorry,"
said Mrs. Currier, laying tho hair down
on tho bed.
The sufferer gently raised her hand
and tenderly smoothed the disheveled
locks, exclaiming in a childlike man
"How much I used to think of you I
and dear grandma, she loved you too I
:nd how he worshipped your beauty
many times his delicate lingers havo

Mrs. Lovell's voico became choked
with weeping. She pressed her small,
shapely hands to her forehead and

in soothing the poor woman.
"I do believe I could uio in pence it

"I deeply sympathizo with you, said

Mrs. Lovell; "and 1 will trust you with
"Airs. Lovell looked wildly around
the room. For a moment sho seemed
greatlv excited. With an effort she
partially controlled her feelings, and
speaking in a low tono, said:
"1 was born m Manchester, lingland.
My parents died when I was an infant.
Aly grandma cared for mo. bho gave
me a beautiful honie,'whoro'l lived very
happily. I loved her, and yet I wrong
ed her. It is just two yeats ago to
morrow that I was married to an Amer
ican gentleman. I was 1C years old.
ih I how my dear grandma cried when
I told her I was married. Sho nover
iked my husband. In three weeks' time
10 was obliged to return to this country.
He promised to como back in two
mouths, and said wc should never again
bo parted. Tho two months at last ex-
tred, but without bringing the beloved
one. Oh, how anxiously I watched lor
lim, and how dear grandma tired to
comfort me. Months passed, and no
tidings came of tho wanderer. I could
ear tho suspense the dreadful wait-
ng no longer. 1 stoic away Ironi
lome, came to Amenc, and searched
everywhere for Harry. All my trouble
las been m vain.
"As a last resort to find my dear
husband I inserted an advertisement in
the Herald's personals, and so worded
it that if it meets his eye ho cannot fail
to iccognize it as coming from his wife.
1 hope he 11 come betoro 1 die. 1 must
seo him once more and learn from his
own lips why ho has deserted me. Oh,
I would like grandma to havo my hair,
l'leaso write to this address, and say
that I am sorry for tho heartaches I
mve caused her. Tell her that ray
great lovo for Harry mado me moro
wretched than happy. Do not let her
know how wretchedly I die."
Alts. Lovell was verv much exhaust
ed by the exertion of talking. She
closed her Byes and gavo her hand to
Airs. Uurrier, who assu.ed the poor
woman that she would carry out her
request, and would also have her prop
erly buried if sho died. At this moment
tho door was hurriedly pushed open
mil a gentleman quickly walked up to
Airs. Lovell started up, and screamed
out in a wild, frantic tone, "Harry!
ny Harry!" and throw hersolt into the
lie hem her close to his breast, fond
kissing her brow, cheeks, and lips,
and then smilingly gazing into her pale
lace, ho exclaimed in loving tones:
"Dearest Fanny, O, forgive me. I
lave not seen ono happy hour since we
larted. Tell me, darlin ' wife, that you
forgivo mo aud lovo me still."
Suddenly tho gentleman grew pale;
10 stared wildly at the sufferer, and
tiokly laying her back on tho pillow,
10 cried out:
Great Heaven! she is dead!" Ho
turned to gazo about the dismal room,
when his oyes glared wildly, his face
became ioro pallid, his whole body
shook with fright. There stood his
gentle wife a witness to his crime the
living and the dead victims both
there tlrey were before mm to appal his
.Mrs, Currier was shocked, grieved,
mil absolutely terrified. In a second
all the sunshine of existence was for-
The golden tresses again crossed the
ocean, hut when they arrived in Eng
land the old grandma was dead.
Airs. Currier never reproached her
husband with words, but her pale face
and wasted form censured him moro
than language could havo done, nnd
when in sW mouths' timo after this sad
exposure Harry Uurrier laid his wile
away to rest among the dead, Ins heart
bade farewell to nil happiness. Ho still
lives surrounded by wealth, but no
riches can erase from his memory the
evil thnt ho has committed, Ho often
repeals to a near friend who knows his
history, "tho wages of sin is death."

Tho Petroleum Fields of Pennsjlanla.
Prnctically, petroleum has beoomo
tho light of the world in tho broadest
sense, being found in tho cabin of tho
pioneer, In tho subterranean haunt of
the miner and In tho mansions of tho
refined nnd wealthy. Even tho barba
rians nnd hnlf civilizcd races havo
adopted it hecauso of its excellent illu-'
initiating qualities aud its marvelous
cheapness. American petroleum
lights the dwellings of Jerusalem, tho
rock temples of tho Upper Nile, tho
Indian bungalow and the homes and
temples of China nnd Japan.
Somo idea of its relative cheapness
when compared with tho old illumina
tors may bo obtained when it is stated
that it can he bought nt retail of tho
ordinary grocer at from ten to fifteen
cents per gallon, whereas in tho old
days sperm oil and camphene sold at
from scveiity-fivo cents to one dollar
and fifty per gallon. This cheapness
has driven out of tho mnrket every
other form of illuminating fluid, nnd
it is of great importance to tho world
that has bceomo so accustomed to its
use that the supply shall ho .maintained
or something equally cheap and avail
able be found as n substitute. Its an
imal production has arisen from a few
hundred barrels in 1859 to thirty mil
lions in 1882. Yet in all thnt timo the
demand lias so near kept pneo with the
supply that tho immense surplus of
upwards of thirty million barrels now
above ground would not auswer for
two yenr's supply if the production
were cut off. It ranks third in .vahio
as an articlo of export from tho United
States, brcadstuffs nnd cotton, nlono ex-,
ceeding it. When wo reflect that
wheat and cotton are tho productions
of a vast expanse of our territory and
that petroleum is tho product of half
a dozen counties in ono corner ot our
own Stato tho forty millions annually
which our own petroleum exports
represent simply seem astonishing.
How long can this immense supply
be kept up? This question is being
asked with a good deal of earnestness
and anxiety by tho thoughtful men
who havo embarked their all iu tho
business. Whilo it is quito possible
that petroleum is being constantly
generated, yet tho process is so slow as
to bo of no practical valuo in keeping up
the supply. Tho history of the petro
leum developments teaches that tho
rich fields aro practically exhausted in
from ono to five years after being
opened. Thero arc many of the rich
est oil farms along Oil Creek and its
tributaries which at present aro not
producing a s'rglc barrel of oil, whilo
nuny moro furnish o.ily tho smallest
modicum of their former production.
It is only a question of timo when
tho Pennsylvania oil fields will bo
among tho things of the past. How
much time will bo required to exhaust
them at tho present rate of production?
This cannot, of course, be answered
with any degree of certainty, but thero
aro many of tho veteran oil men who
do not believe it will tako near as
many years to deplete tho balanco of
the Pennsylvania oil deposits at tho
present rato of production as it hns
taken to bring that production up to
its present status.
The drill has pretty effectually de
lined tho extent of the field in which
productive teiritory may bo hoped for.
The southern limit of tho oleaginous
belt may be said to bo fixed by a line
drawn from Kittanning, in Armstrong
county, to Saxonburgh, in Butler
county. Tho oil bearing rock nt this
southern extremity of the field dips so
far below sen level that the oil was
either never generated bore or elso it
has been forced to higher levels by tho
salt water contained in the rock. A
cordon of wildcat wells which failed
lo find anything but gas has been
drilled at various times and places in
Western Butler, Mercer. Central and
Western Crawford and Erio counties.
lhcso experiments mav bo said to
iavo' practically defined the "Western
limits of the oil field. Coming East,
t lino drawn from Smethport, on the
north, to Leecliburg, Armstrong conn
ty, on the south, will nearly outline
tne general course of a cordon of drv
holes and gas wells which havo been
drilled near Wilcox and Millstone in
Elk county, Stump Creek in Jefferson
and Leechburg in Armstrong and
which clearly limits tho extension of
the field to tho eastward. Theso ex-
leriments, then, confine tho product
ive territory to tho counties f Butler,
Armstrong, Clarion Vcnapgo, Eastern
Crawford, Forest, Warron and MoKean.
The available territory in tho first five
named counties has already been prac
tically exhausted, although it is quito
probablo that a number of small pools
of tho Pithole and Bullun order may
yet bo lound in either ot them. Ale-
tvean is on tho decline, its productive
territory being clearly defined and
much moro than half oxhausted, leav
ing only Warren and Forest to yet bo

leiiosits iust being opened in Cherrv

A Strange Story.
A young man by tho namo of Micah
Sherman, tho oldest son of a widow
living in the town of Hampden, on the
Penobscot River, lind been in failing
health for somo time, and thinking
that a sea voyage might bo beneficial,
ho started in tlio barque Templar,
Cnniniu S. Bartlctt, for n voyage to
Liverpool and tho Chiucha Islands nnd
from there home.
His half-brother, Mr. Joshua Sher
man, now of Uangor, wns lirst oinccr
f the shh). It was from him wo had
this singular story.
it seems that tho poor uoy tionveu
no advantago lrom tho voyngc, out
steadily grew worse until nt Inst, when
near Uapo lloin, he seemed to no in
the last stages of consumption.
Ilo lay in his bunk tlio greater part
f the time in a sort of drowsy state.
One day when his brother visited his
sick-bed he suddenly said
"Joshua, I havo been home and
havo seen mother, and don't yo think,
sho is married again 1"
"Why." replied his brother, "you
have only been dreaming."
"No," ho said, "I have surely been
home, and mother is married again nnd
the houso is full. Her husband has
brought his family there, and ono of
his children, a young girl, is sick."
A day or two afterward ho said ho
had been home again, and added that
the sick girl coughed all the time.
Alter a number ot days had elapsed
ho said, "Well, I havo been homo
again,and thoy have moved the pig stye
and somo of tho other out-buildings,"
also saying that the sick g'ul seemed
His brother paid scarcely any atten
tion to theso visions, thinking they
ero simply vagaries of a sick man.
inally one day ho announced that the
ck girl was dead. Said he, "I went
homo and they were having hor funer-
A few days after that bodied. When
the brother got homo he found that his
step-mother married again and her hus
band had quito a largo family there,
andthatono ofthe children, quite a
oung woman, had died.
Upon comparing dates thov louiitl
that the girl had actually died and was
urica on tho very day the boy hail de
scribed, and all he had said was true,
oven to tho removal of tho buildings.
Comparatively few of those who
have been in tho habit of whittling
pino shingles, etc., and who during
their whole lives have been accustomed
to seeing pine wood used for almost
every purpose in tho building of houses,
manufacture ot lurmturo etc., havo a
iroper conception of tho value of this
nut ot timber now. Just as wo as a
people have acted in many other di-
eclions so have we doll and are deal
ing with our whilo pine forests. There
ppears to have been a combined ef
fort on tho part of a largo portion of
our people to ex'.enninato them in tho
speediest possible manner, and it is duo
to them to stale that they aro on the
high road to success. Pino lumber to
day, that is, lumber of lirst quality, is
daily growing moro aud more scarce,
and consequently much higher in price.
It is now among the most costly of our
woods, and unless :t speedy cheek is
mt to tho destruction of the pine for
ests of the Northwest, tho day is not
ar distant when piuo sticks for whit
tling will bo too costly to bo applied to
such uses, and pino timber will bo more
aluablo than mahogany or walnut.
In regard to tho latter wood, it is well
known that the country is almost de
nuded for it, and that the attention
of builders und furniture nianiiff.cturers
are now in eager quest of a substitute
for it. In regard to the rapid disap
pearance of our pino forests, wo have
tho authority of a government bureau
tor staling that at tho present rato of
consumption there is less than tweh'o
years supply ot that almost liidispensi-
bio timber, this is certainly an. alarm
ing fact, for although l here is yet a
vast amount of untouched forest' land
in the United States, nono of it con
tains trees that in point general util
ity will furnish lumber at all compara
ble with the whito pine. All this is in
direct keeping w th tho spirit ot exter
mination that has manifested itself iu
so many other directions. The buffalo,
tho tteur, the partridge, tho seal the
iish in our lakes and streams, and oven
those of the ocean, are rapidly under
going tho process of extermination. It
really seems as though there was con
certed action for tho accomplishment
of theso destructive ends. And yet tho
government is an apathetic observer of
these enormous wastes of many of our
most important natural resources. Two
or three generations henco tho disas
trous effects of this worse than insr.no
lolicy will bo felt in its fullest force.
