Out little Bess has been brought up

And yH she dom Indulge In flights

That's ofttinvM truly comic.
Or summer ere when Venus shone
While still the daylight dal)il,
A queen altho' the sun's Ceroo kiss
Had left her slightly palld.
We saw that, tho th rest all gazed
Aloft in admiration,
Bess dainty little features wore
A look of deprecation.
'A penny for your thoughts," said L
Then grarely spoke our gitiyj
"I fink they're 'etwaragant lu heaven

"Did you over btrnip np against an In
dividual who baffled yonr curiosity by
drawing n veil of secrecy over his past?'
queried tho young doctor, when it camo
his turn to contribute a story to tho gen
eral fund. "I used to think," ho con
tinued, "that such characters emanated
solely from tho fertilo brain of tho fiction
writer. Eut I was mistakon. Not many
years sinco I formed tho acquaintance of
a man who was harder to mako out than
the most ingenious creation of a novelist
could possibly bo. A rrgular humau
enigma in Bhort, and bo wasn't obliging
enough, you know, to clear up tho mys
tery before ho died either.
It was early in tho '80 s," began tho
doctor, lighting a cigar, "and I had just
finished my medical studies and was
trying to pick up a Uttlo practice in a
pleasant village, in tho southern part of
Wisconsin. Business diun t flourish by
any means, but as I bad friends there,
and was too poor, besides, to think of
establishing myself in a large city, I was
very weU content to remain there, for
a while at least.
"Thero were several churches in tho
town, but at the timo of which I speak
tho Congregational pulpit was empty.
Numerous applications for tho position
appeared, but none suited until at last
one of tho trustees arrived homo after a
short trip and anuounced that be bad
found tho very person. A Kev. Mr.
Ramsay it was whom ho had run across
quite accidentally, and who, though
traveling for his health, nan nnauy con
sented to como out and preach a trial
sermon and to remain indefinitely if his
hearers were pleased.
Weu, in dno timo Mr. Kamsay ar
rived and delivered a discourse which,
for eloquence and logic, I have never
heard excelled. You may be sure tho
church lost not a moment in engaging
him, and thoy marveled much at their
good luck, wondering that so talented a
man should wish to stay and bury his
gifts in such a small, obscuro town.
"Tlio now acquisition speedily arose
to the placo of first favorite in tho ranks
of tho ministers. His rennons fairly
scintillated with brilliancy, and wo soon
found that ho certainly possessed a re
markably fine education in tho bargain.
Though ho never spoke of tho past, his
conversation gavo evidenco of his having
traveled extensively in pretty much
every country on the face of the globe.
Moreover ho was young, and such
genial, warm hearted fellow that every.
body liked him at first sight. They
couldn t help it.
"But, as I said, ho never alluded to
his former life. For aught wo knew ho
might havo been a bishop or a highway
man, an American gambler, or the son
of an English duke, but the church
members were too proud of he prize
they uau captureu to uo very cu
rious about the previous record,
and tho tonch of mystery clinging to
him only rendered him his more at
tractive to us. For my part, I thought
tho strangest thing concerning him was
that he seemed never to hold communi

hero, passing through somo woods iu a
secluded part of tho grounds, found her
lying face downward in a shallow llttlo
pool of water there.
" ' "Drowned herself during tempo
rary aberration of tho mind" was tho
verdict, and then it was tho young man
learned that insanity had been for gen
erations back a hereditary trait in his
mother's family. Then, nluo, was ho
told tho real truth about his father, and
ho found that that father was not dead,
but was incarcerated In a private hospi

heard that hia betrothed was dead

untimely end.
" 'Can you wonder,' continued Bam-

species of bitterness often mingles, half
unconsciously, with his sorrow for his

"At first I seriously questioned if Ram

though his apparent gayety led mo to
dismiss that thought, still I couldn t
help feeling that tho events ho'd nar
rated had in somo way produced a last
ing effect in his life.
"Well, matters woro quite tranquilly
on for a year or so, and Mr. Ramsay
grew in tho popular favor nil tho while.
Ho was a liberal fellow, and his sermons
wero frequently rather unorthodox, but
his flock worshiped him to such an ex
tent that if ho had dosed them with
atheism they wouldn't havo grumbled a
bit. Tho girls were In lovo with him,
every ringle ono of them, but never did
they find the way to Ids heart. Ho reso
lutely declined to bo drawn into flirta

to all the damsels, taught them German,
played tennis and escorted them to pic
nics with a gay impartiality very pro
voking to tho sensibilities of the poor,
anxious young creatures.
"One morning as I sat in tho drug
store talking Ramsay happened in nnd
purchased a package of rat poison. He
mentioned casually that tho inico wero
bothering him, nnd stood a moment gos
siping with careless good humor and
then went out.
"That night tho deacon with whom ho
waa boarding came hurriedly to my office

"Ho lingered three days, suffering hor

he showed mo a photograph he woro

and vory liko tho other. And ho asked
that it bo buried with him, and so it
was. Tho church gavo him a most im

ceased, I believo, to mourn their mys

a long whilo thoy sought to find out tho
secret of his life, but tho minutest in

tho young doctor, "and I can't help won

A Man Yvlio Room, to Tta Able to Exist
Without Food.
Will Shrnor Sued succumbf Such has
been tho leading question among physiolo
gists In Now York dty for soma time as
tho famous faster has been making his test
of forty-flvo days without food. IIo did
forty days In Ixmdon, and nearly equal
terms In other foreign cities, but promised
forty-flvo days' olistlnenco in New York,
ns Dr. Tanner had already dono forty dnya.
Ills method, however, dlHera widely
from Tanner's, for ho takes considerable
excrct&o. Ou tue

On the other hand, ho takes occasional
doACS of an elixir of his own invention,
which, tho attending physicians say, con
sists of opium, licorice and a slight Infu
sion of hasheesh. They insist that It con
tains no nourishment, but It soothes the
stomach and prevents that gnawing sen
sation which is so iuiinful in tho first days
of a fust.
Slgnor Succl'a theory is much tho same
as Tanner's, viz.! If you cannot get food,
and think you must havo It and yield to
tho longing for It, you will starve lu two
weeks or less, but If you resolutely mako
up your mind to do without It you can for
six or sovcu weeks. To this tho Bignor

there is no doubt whatever of the reality
of his fast and that ho Is adding a valuable

S.nsatlonnl Salcldo of a Train llobber In
Another of tho Uubo Burrows gang has
gone suddenly to his peace. S. C. Brock,
better known as Joe Jackson, jumped
from tho highest gallery in tho peniten
tiary at Jackson, Miss., and dashed ont
his brains upon the brick floor somo fifty
feet below.
He left a written confession that ho and
Hubo Burrows committed the Duck hill
train robbery lu December, 18S3, nnd that
ho (Brock) shot Chester Hughes, who was
In pursuit of them.
Ho and Hubo Smith, in conjunction with
Burrows, also
committed tho

sion also contains
minute details of

and thus get off JOE JACKSON,
with life Imprisonment, instead of being
tried in tho state court for the murder ot
Hughes and hanged, Later, however, ho
changed his mind nnd dccldod to dio.
The occurrence was a trying ono for tho
officials. Brock and Bubo Smith were be
ing taken out for trial when Brock sud
denly turned and ran up tho stairs to tho
highest point he could reach, crying ont to
Btand clear below, for he was coming. Two
officials seized n mattress and held It so
as to catch him thereon it possible, whilo
the others sought to reason with hlin.
They say this lasted an hour, but It was
probably much less. Ho shouted out bis
real namo and added, "I would mako a
statement It thero was a reporter hero,"
Ha threw down his new derby hat, saying)
"Give that to tho convict who keeps tho
white mice in his cell; ho Is a very clover
Tho officer on tho gallery now tried to
reach and seize him, but Brock evaded him
and mode tho leap. Ho turned over as ho
fell, and just missing tho mattress struck
on the back of his head. HU skull was
crushed to fragments and driven into his
brain, yet ho breathed occasionally for half
an hour. This leaves Bubo Smith the lust
of tho famous trio, and ho will doubtless
end his days In prison.
