not so strictly adhered to as with us."
"Then I consider that it is "a fraud upon
upon the public, Captain Uervyn. Gentle
men's dress is so dingy and monotonous
that I consider it distinctly the duty of.sol
diers to give us a little light and color when
thev get the chance."
"Very well. Miss Blackmoor, I will bear
it in mind; and next time my mother gives a
ball, the regiment, if it is within reach, shall
come in uniform. By the way. do you know
who is the man my cousin is dancing with?
There are lots of faces I don't know here;
being seven or eight years away makes a
difference in a quiet country place."
"That is Mr. Gnlston. He is First Lieu
tenant of the flagship at Plymouth. I
know it because he was introduced to me
early in tile evening, and e danced to
gether, nnd a capital dancer he i, too."
"He is an uncommonly good-looking fel
low," Ronald said.
Hargaret Carne seemed to think so too,
as she danced w ith him two or three times
in the course of the evening, and went down
to supper on his arm.
Bonald having, as the son of the house,
to divide his attentions as much as possible,
did not dance with his cousin. Lieutenaut
Gulstou had been accompanied by the third
lieutenant and by the doctor, who never
missed an opportunity of going to a ball be
cause, as he said, it gave him au opportuni
ty of studying character.
" "You see," he would argue, "on board a
ship one nets only the one side of human na
ture. Sailors may differ a bit one irom an
other, but they can all be divided into two
or three classes the steady honest fellow
who tries to do his work well; the reckless
fellow who is ready to do his work.but is up
to every sort of mischief and devilment, and
the lazy, loafing fellow who neglects his
duty whenever he possibly cau, and is al
ways shamming sick in order to get off it.
Some day or other I shall settle on shore
and practice there, and I want to learn
something about the people I shall have to
deal with; besides, there's nothing more
amusing than looking on at a ball when
you have no ilea oi dancing yourself. It's
astonishing what a lot of human nature you
see if you do but keep your wits about
In the course of the evening he ameup
to the first lieutenant.
"Who is that man you have just been
talking to, Gulston? I hRve been watch
ing him for some time. He has not been
dancing, but nas been standing in corners
looking on." ,
"He is Mr. Carne, doctor; a cousin, or
ratner a nephew, of our hostess."
"Is he the brother of that pretty girl you
have been dancing with?"
"Then I am sorry for her," the surgeon
"Sorry what for?"
The surgeon answered by another ques

away before the lieutenant could ask far
ther. It was 4 o'clock before the dancing ceased
and the last carriage rolled away. Then
the military and naval men, and two or
three visitors from Plymouth, gathered in
the library, and smoked and talked foran
hour, and were then conveyed to the station
to catch an early train. The next day, as
they were walking up and down the quarter
deck, the first lieutenant said: "By the
way, doctor, what was it you -were going to
say last night about the Carnes? You said
you were sorry for Miss Carne, and asked
me-if I knew anything about the history of
"Yes, that was it, Gulston; it wasn't the
sort of thing to talk about there, especially
as I understand the Mervyns are connec
'lions ot the Carnes. The question I was
going to ask you was this.: You know
their family history; is there any insanity
The lieutenant stopped suddenly in his
walk with an exclamation of surprise and
"What do you mean, Mackenzie? Why
do you ask such a question?"
"You have not answered mine. Is there
insanity in the blood?"
"There has been," the Lieutenant said,
"1 felt sure of it I think you have heard
me say my lather made a special studr of
madness; and when I was studying lor my
profession I have often accompanied him to
lunatic asylums, and I devoted a great deal
of time to th subject, intending to make it
my special launch also. Then the rambling
fit seized me and I entered the service; but
I have never missed following the subject
up whenever I have had an opportunity. I
have therefore visited asylums for lunatics
wherever such existed at "every port which
we have put into since I have been in the
"When my eye first fell upon Mr. Carne
he was standing behind several other peo
ple, watching the dancing, and the expres
sion of his face struck me as soon as my eye
fell upon him. 1 watched him closely all
through the evening. He did not dance,
and rarely spoke to anyone, never unless
addressed. I watched his lace and bis
hands hands are, I can tell you, almost as
expressive as faces and I have not the
smallest hesitation in saying that the man
is mad. It is possible, but not probable,
that at ordinary times he may show no signs
of it, but at times, and last night was one of
those times, the man is mad; nay, more, I
should be inclined to think that his mad
ness is of a dangerous type.
"Now that you tell me it is hereditary, I
am to lar confirmed in my opinion that I
should not hesitate, if called upon to do so,
to sign a certificate to the effect that, iu my
opinion, he was so far iusane as to need the
most careful watching, if not absolute con
finement," The color had faded from the lieutenant's
face as the doctor spoke.
'I am awfully sorry," he said, in a low
tone, "and I trust to God, doctor, that you
are mistaken. I cannot but think that you
are. I was introduced to him by his sister,
and he was most civil and polite, indeed
more than civil, for he asked me if I was
fond ot shooting, and when I said that I
was extremely so, he invited me over to his
place. He said lie did not shoot himself,
but that next week his cousin Mervyn and
one or two others were coming to 'him to
have two or three days' pheasant shootin?,
and he would be glad if I would join the
party; and, as you may suppose, I gladly
accepted the invitation."
"Well," the doctor said, dryly, "so far as
he is concerned, there is no danger in your
doing so, if, as you say, he doesn't shoot. If
he did, I should advise you to stay away;
and in any case, if you will take the advice
which I offer, you won't go. You will send

minute or two, but paced the room in

The ddetor nodded.

gravely. "No, I should say certainly not;

shook hit head. v
"The lad is hard bit," he c&id, "and I am
sorry for bim. I hope my warning comes
in time; it would do if he isn't a fool, but
all young men are fools where the women
are concerned. I will say for him that he
has more sense than most, but I would give
a good deal if this had not happened,"
Lieutenant Gulston was, indeed, hard bit;
he had been much struck with the momen
tary glance he had obtained of Margaret
Carne as he stood on the steps of the Carne
Arms, and the effect had been greatly
heightened on the previous day. Lieuten
ant Gulston had, since the days when be
was a middy, indulged in many a flirtation,
but he had never before felt serious. He
had olten laughed at the impressibility of
his comrades, and bad scoffed at the idea of
love at first sight, but now that he had be
gun to think matters seriously over, the
pain that the doctor's remarks 'had given
him opened his eves to the fact that it was a
good deal more than a passing fancy. .
Thinking it over in every light, he
acknowledged the prudent course would be
to send some excuse to her brother, it ith an
expression of regret that he found that a
matter of duty would prevent his coming
over, as he bad promised, for the shooting.
Then he told himself that alter all the doc
tor might be mistaken, and that it would be
only right that he should judge for himself.
If there was anything in it, of course he
should go no more to The Hold, and no
harm would be done. Margaret was cer
tainly very charming; she was more than
charming, she as the mo$t lovable woman
he.bad ever met. Still, ot course, if there
was any chance of herinheritlng this dread
ful thing, he would see her no more. After
all, no more harm could be done in a couple
of days than had been done already, and he
was not such a fool but that he could draw
back in time. And so after changing his
mind half a dozen times, he resolved to go
over for the shooting.
"Butb, I want to speak to you serious
ly," Margaret Carne taid to her maid two
days after the ball. Ruth Powlett was the
miller's daughter, and the village gossips
had been greatly surprised when, a year be
fore, they heard that she was going up to
The Hold to be Miss Carne's own maid; for
although the old mill was a small one, and
did no more than a local business, Hiram
was accounted to.havelaid by a snug penny,
and as Buth wos'his only child she was gen
erally regarded as the richest heiress in
Carnesford. That Hiram should let her go
into service, even as maid to Miss Carne at
The Hold, struck everyone with surprise.
It was generally assumed that the step had
been taken because Hiram Powlett wanted
peace in the bouse. He had, after the death
of his first wife, Ruth's mother, married
again, and the general verdict was that he
had made a mistake. In the first place,
Hiram was a stanch Churchman, and one
of the church wardens at Carnesford; but
his wife, who was a Dareport woman and
that alone was in the opinion of carnesford
greatly against her was a Dissenter, and
attended the little chapel at Dareport, and
entertained the strongest views as to the
prospects and chances ot her neighbors in a
future state; and in the second place, per
haps in consequence of their religious
opinions, she was generally on bad terms
with all her neighbors.
Bnt when Hiram married her she had a
good figure, the lines oi her face had not
hardened as they afterward did, and he had
persuaded himself that she would make an
excellent mother for Buth. Indeed she had
not been intentionally unkiud, and al
though she had brought her up strictly, she
believed that she had thoroughly done her
duty; lamenting only that her efforts had
been thwarted by the obstinacy and perverse
ness of her husband in insisting that the
little maid should trot to church by his side
instead of going with her to the chapel at
Buth had grown up a quiet and somewhat
serious girl; she had -blossomed out into
prettiness in the old mill, and folks in the
village were divided as whether she or Lucy
Carey, the smith's daughter, was the pret
tiest girl in Carnesford. Not that there was
any other matter in comparison between
them, for Lucy was somewhat gay and flirty,
and had a dozen avowed admirers; while
Buth had from her childhood made nosecrct
of her preference for George Forester, the
son of the little farmer whose land came
down to the Dare just where Hiram Pow
lett's mill stood.
He was some five years olderthan she was,
and had fished her out of the mill-stream
when she fell into it when she was 8
years old. Prom that time he had been her
hero. She had been content to follow bim
about Jike a dog, to sit by his side for hours
while he fished iu the deep pool above the
mill, under the shadow of the trees, quite
content with an occasional word or notice.
She took his part heartily when her step
mother denounced turn as the idlest and
most impertinent boy in the parish; and
when, soon after she was fifteen, be one day
mentioned that, as a matter of course, she
would same day be his wife, she accepted it
as a thing oi which she had never enter
tained any doubt whatever.
But Hiram now took the alarm, and one
day told her that she was to give up consort
ing with young Forester.
"You are no longer a child, Buth, and if
you go on meeting young Forester down et
the pool pedple will be beginning to "talk.
Of course, I know that you are a good girl
and would never for a moment think of
taking up with George Forester. Everyone
knows what sort of joung fellow he is; he
never does a day's work oi the farm, and
he is in and out of the Carne Arms at all
hours. He associates with' the worst lot in
the village,, and it was only the other day
that when the parson tried to speak to him
serionsly be answerei him in a way that
was enough to make one's hair stand on
Buth obeyed her father, and was no more
seen about with George Forester, but she
believed no tale to his disadvantage, and,
when at times she met with him accidental
ly she told him frauklv enough that though
her father didn't like her going about with
him, she loved him and meant to love him
always, whatever they might say. Upon
all other points her lather's will was law to
Her, but upon Ibis she was firm, and two
years afterward, when some words yonng
Forester had spoken at a public house
about his daughter came to bis ears, Hiram
renewed the subject to her, she answered
stanchly that unless be gave' his consent
she would not marry George Forester, but
that nothing would make her give him up
or go back from her word.
For once Hiram Powlett and his wife were
thoroughly in accord. The former seldom
spoke upon the subject, but the latter was
not so retlceut. and every misdeed of vountr
Forester was severely commented upon by
her in Ruth's hearing. Buth seldom an
swered, bnt her Either saw that she suffered,
and more than once remonstrated with his
wife on what he called her cruelty, but
found that as usual Hesba was not to be
turned irom her course.
"No," Hiram Powlett," she said, shutting
her lips tightly together; "I must do my
duty whether vou like it or not, and it is
my duty to see that Buth does not throw
away her happiness in this world or the
next by her-headstrong conduct. She docs
not belong to the fold, bnt in other respects
I will do her credit to say that she is a good
girl and does her duty as well as can be ex
pected, considering the dullness of the
light she has within her; but if she were to
marry this reprobate she would be lost body
and soul; and whatever you mav think of
the matter, Hiram Powlett, I will not hold
1 .L - nit '
my peace in me mailer.
"I am quite as determined as you are,
Hesba, that the child shall not marry this
young rascal, but I don't think it does any
good to be always nagging at her. Women
are queer creatures; the more you want
them to go one way the more thev will go
But though Hiram Powlett did not say
much, he worried greatly. Ruth had al
ways been quiet, bnt she was quieter than
ever now and her checks gradually lost
their roses and she looked pale and thin. At
last Hiram determined that it he could not
obtain peace for her at home be would
elsewhere, and hearing that Miss Carne's
maid was going to be married, hedetermined
to try to get Buth the place. She would be -free'irom
Hcsba's tongue"there, and would
have other thingstothink about besidesJieti
of approaching the subject to her, and was
surprised and pleased to find that when he
did, Instead of opposing it as he had ex
pected, she almost eagerly embraced the pro
posal. In fact, Buth'f pale cheeks and changed
appearance were not due, as her father sup
posed, to unhappiness at her stepmother's
talk against George Forester; but because
in spite or herself she began to feel that her
accusations were not without foundation.
Little by little she learned, from chance
words dropped bv others, that the light in
which her father held George Forester was
that generally entertained in the village.
She knew that he had quarreled with his
father, and that after one of their alterca
tions he had gone off to Plymouth and en
listed, only to be bought out by his father
four days afterward.
She knew that be drank, and had taken
part in several serious frays that had arisen
at the little beershop in the village; and
hard as she fought against the conviction,
it was steadily making its way, that her
lover was wholly unw'orthy of her. And
yet, in spite of His faults, she loved him.
Whatever he was with others, he was gentte
and pleasant with her, and she felt that
were she to give him up his last chance
would be gone. So she was glad to get
away from the village for a time, and to the
surprise of the father and the furious anger
of George Forester, she applied for and
obtained the post ot Margaret Carne's
She had few opportunities of seeing
George Forester now; bnt what she heard
when she went down to the village on Sun
days was not encouraging. He drank
harder than before, and spent nueh
of his timdown at Dareport, and, as some
said, was connected with a rough lot there
who were fonder of poaching than of fish
ing. Margaret Carne was, aware of what she
considered Buth's infatuation. She kept
hprself well informed of the affairs of the
village the greater portion of which be
longed to her father and her brother and
she learnt frora the clergyman, whose right
hand she was in the choir and schools, a
good deal of the village gossip. She had
never spoken to Buth on the subject during
the nine months she had been with her, but
now she felt she was bound to speak.
"What is it, Miss Margaret?" Buth said
quietly in answer to her remark. .
"I don't want to vex you, and you will
say it is no business of mine, but I think it
is, for you know I like you very much, be
sides your belonging to Carnesford. Of course
I have heard everyone has heard, you
know about your engagement to young
Forester. Now a very painful thing has
happened. t On the night ot the dance our
gamekeepers came across a party of poach
ers in the woods, as of course you ' have
beard, and had a fight with them, and one
ot the keepers is so badly hurt that they
don't think be will live. He has sworn
that the man who stabbed him was George
Forester, and my brother, as a magistrate,
has just signed a warrant for his arrest.
"Now, Both, surely this man is not
worthy of you. He bears, I hear, on all
sides a very bad character, and I think you
will be more than risking your happiness
with such a man; I think for your own sake
it would be better to give him up. My
brother is very incensed against him; he
has been out with the other keepers to the
place where this fray occurred, and he says
it was a most cowardly business, for the
poachers were eight to three, and he seems
to have no doubt whatever that Forester
was one of the party, and that they will be
able to prove it. I do think, Butb, you
ought to give him up altogether. I am not
talking to you as a mistress, you know, but
as a friend."
"I think you are right, Miss Margaret,"
the girl said, in a low voice. "I have been
thinking it over in everyway. At first I
didn't think what they said was true, and
then I thought that perhaps, I might be
able to keep him right, and that ir I were
to give him up there would be no chance for
him. I have tried very hard to see what
was my duty, but I think now that I seeTt.
and that I must break off with him. But
ohl it is so hard," she added, with a quiver
in her voice, "for though I know that I
oughtn't to love him, I can't hflp it."
"I cau quite understand that, Entb,"
Margaret Came agreed. "I know if I loved
anyone I should not give him up merely be
cause everybody spoke ill of him. But,
you see, itis'diftenjnt now. It is not merely
a suspicion, it is almost absolute proof; and
besides, you must know that he spends most
of his time in the public bouse, and that he
never would make a good husband."
"I have known that a long time," Buth
said, quietly; "but I have hoped alwayR
that he might change if I married him. I
am afraid I can't hope any longer, and I
have been thinking for some time that I
should have to give him up. I will tell him
so now, if I have au opportunity."
"I don't suppose you will, for my brother
says he has not been home since the affair
in the wood. If be has, he went away again
at once. I expect he has made either for
Plymouth or London, for he must know
that the police would be alter him for his
share in this business. I am very sorry for
it, Buth, but I do think you willbchappier
when you have once made up your mind to
break with him. No good could possibly
come Irom your sacrificing yourself."
Buth said no more on' the subject, but
went about her work as quietly and orderly
as usual, and Margaret Carne was surprised
to see how bravely she held up, for she knew
that she mnst be suffering greatly.

millionaire banker and oil inspector of
Kittanning. Upon the death of herparents,
Judge Neale was appointed her guardian,

Exceptions to his report were taken.
In his decision yesterday Judge Acheson
sustained the report in all but two points.
He Heckled that Judge Neale still has
$2,87(3 50 belonging to Mrs. Linton, and

the guardian for services to $1,000. The
costs are to be paid by Judge Neale out of
the money in his hands, and the balance
paid to Mrs. Linton.

without relief, I saw by an advertise

been relieved of this distressing com

Ayer's Samparilla. I then decided to
make a trial of this medicine, and took

GLAD TO BE A WITNESS.
Why Mr. Huffman is Willing to Talk
HE STATES WHAT HE ENDUEED.
. "Just put it down and describe it as I
give it to you," said Mr. Huffman.
"Though it's passed now, there is not any
thing I have forgotten about it. Meu don't
forget such things."
Mr. Kobert W. Huffman resides at 163
Jackson street, Allegheny. The descrip
tion which he furnishes is worthy of special
note, as those who read the following
through to the end will agree:
"It was my head that first began to trouble
me," he said. "31 v nostrils would clog up,
first on one side and then on the other.
Sometimes they would be sore and sensitive
ou the inside. At times there would be a
discharge. I could feel "the niucns drop
back into my throat. Across my orehpd
and over my eyes there wa3 a dull, heavy
feeling. This continued all the time, never
leaving me a moment. It was not exactly a
heud.iche. It was just a dull, dreary pain.
A miserable feeling that came from my nose
and head being all stuffed up, I can't de
scribe it any other way.
"My throat would become filled up with
mucus. Something seemed to stick there
that could not get up nor down, though I
would hack and couch in trying to dislodge
it, I would keep swallowing, though there
would something always remain that I
could not seem to swallow. My throat was
sdre and raw. In later years I had great
difficulty in breathing. Seemed as if there
was not room to get the air into my lungs.
When I drew ray breath it was accompanied
bv a wheezing sound. At bight I had a
cfioked up and smothered sensation.
Mr. Robert W. Huffmann, 163 Jackson Slree1
"I would catch cold without any apparent
cause. A continual backing cough set in
which, try as I would, I could not get rid of.
"Alter a time sharp pains sticking like a
knife would take me in the region of the
heart, sometimes so severe as to almost take
away my breatb. The slightest exertion
put me out of breath. Frequently without
apparent cause I would have palpitation of
the heart. My heart would beat very fast.
This would be followed by a slow, irregular
beating, sometimes accompanied by dizzi
ness. "I would sleep well at night, but when I
got up would feel tired nnd unrefreshed as
if I had not had any sleep. I bad no ap
petite for breakfast. There would be a bad
taste in my mouth. I would feel hungry
but could not eat, the sight and smell of
food seemed to sicken me. My stomach was
out of order. After eating there would be
a dull, heavy feeling in my stomach. I
lost steadily In strength nnd weight. I tried
almost everything but without getting any re
lief. "My condition when I went to Drs. Copeland
ana Blair uasas I have described it. Under
their treatment I improved steadily from tbe
start. My head and throat became dear. The
pains in my chest, palpitation of the heart and
the tired feeling m tbe morning, all passed
away. My cough has disappeared. I sleep
well and eat well. I have no more bcadache,
and feel quite like another person. My friends
noticed my Improvement every day. 1 am elad
to witness in this what Drs. Copeland and Blair
have done for me."
Mr. Huffman lives, as stated, at 163 Jackson
street, Allegheny. He Is engaged tn the Alle
gheny Market, at McUnde's Restaurant. His
statement can easily be verified.
VERY PLAIN TALK,
Conlaln'ng Truth With Which Evsryone
Should Become Familiar.
When catarrh has existed in the bead and
upper parts of the throat for any length of
timer tbe patient living in a district where
people are subject to catarrhal affection, and
the disease has been le't uncured, the ca
tarrh invariably, sometimes slowly, extends
down the windpipe and into the bronchial
tubes, which tubes convey the air into the
different parts of the lungs. The tabes be
come affected from tbe swelling and the
mucus arising from catarrh, and in some
instances become plugged up so that the
air cauuot get in as freely as it should.
Shortness of breath follows, and the patient
breathes with labor and difficulty.
In other cases there is a sound of crack
ing and wheezing inside the chest. At
this stage of the' disease the breathing is
usually more rapid than when iu health.
TJie patient has also hot flashes over his
The pain which accompanies this condi
tion is ot a dull character, felt in the chest,
behind the breast bone or under the shoul
der blade. Tiie pain may come and go
last a few days and then be absent for sev
eral others. "The cough that occurs in the
first stages of bronchial catarrh is dry, comes
at intervals, is backing in character, and
usually most troublesome in the morning on
arisiugoron going to bed at night, and it
may be the first evidence of the disease ex
tending in the lungs.
At first there may be nothing brought up
by the cough; then there is a little tough,
tenacious mucus, which thj patient finds
great difficulty in bringing up.
Sometimes there are fits ot coughing in
duced by the tough mucus so violent as to
cause vomiting. Later on tbe mucus that is
raised is found to contain some particles of
yellow matter, which indicates that the small
tubes In the lungs arc nowatrectcd. With this
there are often streaks of blood mixed with the
mucus. Iu some cases the patient becomes
very pale, has fever and expectorates before
any cough appears.
In some cases small masses of cbeesey sub
stance arc spit up, which, when pressed be
tween the lingers, emit a had odor: in other
cases, particles of a hard, chalky nature are
spit up. Tbe raising of cheesey or chalky lumps
indicates serious niichlef at work in tbi lungs.
In some cases catarrab will extend into tho
lungs in a few weeks; In other cases It may be
months, and even vears, before, the disease at
tacks the lungs sufficiently to cause serious in
terference with the general health. When the
diseaso has developed to such a point tbeua
tlenfis bald to have catarrhal consumption.
With bronchial catarrah there Is mure or less
fever, which aiffers-with the different parts of
the day slight in tho morning, higher in the
afternoon and evening.
