He read the letter slowly and with de
caying spirit. When he had finished he
folded it up deliberately and put it back
into the envelope. Kis face was pale,
his lips were apart, his eyes dull, expres
sionless. "Be it so." he said at length. "She Is

right. She would always be right, and I
when I differed from her always wrong.
That is not the position a husband should
occupy in a wife's esteem."

"it might have been ever so much worse."
"Worse! How eouid it be worse? T.ier:

"Why, thank heaven, Mr. Leigh, you

When the two men gained the open air

"If you will rest awhile here," said Ilan

p or down the street"
"No." said Leigh, a s
hudder passing
through his frame. "Let us walk, if you
do not mind. I could not bear to stay
near this place any longer. Is it not
strange that you should have wanted a
: cab in this spot torty-eight hours ago,
! and I should want it here now?"
j "It is strange," said Ilanbury, "but the
j world is very small, nnd our absolute
j wants in it are very closely circumscrib

pulsion, no doubt. 1 have had so long
a l'fe of loneliness and repression, I warn

"1 know. 1 wish I were as sure of any
thing else as I am of you. 1 lied to you
very considerably. I lied because I hnt
imagination; because I Sad vanity; be
cause people are such id.ots."
"What I said about Miracle Gold tas
mostly a lie also."
"I knew that."
"All right. Most of What I told yon
about Miracle Gold was a lie. All I told
you about making it was a life . I was
about to enter into a league with thieves
to take stolen gold, and pretend to make
it. I was going to do this for the sake
of the fame, not the profit.
"A very dangerous kind of alchemy,
"Anywjy I have told you what my
scheme was. I told Mrs. Ashton that
my clock was independent of my hands
for winding up. You heard Williams,
the publican, say they saw me wind up
my clock lasl night Well, I was not near
tny clock last night."
"I'.ut he said he saw you."
"He did. N.ov you can understand how
necessary it was for me to lie."
"I candidly confess I cannot."
"Well, when I conceived the notion of
making Miracle Gold I knew I ran a
great risk. I thought it might become nec
esfcan tc erove alrinaUvea at all ejeuts.
The proposition or an alibi is an affirma
tive, tbe deduction a negative. I told you
my clock was my friend. Well, I made
! help me in this. I gave out in the pub
lic house that my clock had now become
so complicated that I bad arranged to
connect all the movements. The clock
was to be wound up by a lever fixed near
the window, at which I sat when at work,
the only window in the room. NiglK after
night 1 worked at this lever for half an
hour, turning round exactly nt a quarter
past twelve to nod nt the people. Mean
while, I was busy constructing a life-sized
figure the body of a man every way as
like me as possible. I have skill, a good
deal of skill, in modeling. It was made to
be moved by tbe lever, not to move it. I
easily timed the head so as to turn at a
quarter-past. I inserted iu the neek of
the figure like myself a movement which
would make the head nod before turning
away to go on with the winding. You
now see my idea?"
"Not quite clearly. But I suspect it."
"Suppose I had to meet one of my cli
ents about the gold, 1 should make an
appointment with him at a quarter past
twelve elsewhere. My clock, at twelve
o'clock, slowly raised the figure from the
rloor to the place in which I sat in my
chair, turned up the gas, which had been
dimmed to the last glimmer that would
live, and then released the weight in the
chimney and set the figure moving as if
working the lever, instead o.? the lever
working it. Thus you see 1 should have
a dozen to swear they saw me in my room,
if nnything went wrong iu my interviews
with my clients, or if from any other cause
it became necessary for me to prove 1
was in my workshop between twelve and
half-past twelve at night."
"Very ingenious indeed."
"There is not much more to tell. Ow
ing to a reason I need not mention, I
made up my mind ou Thursday morning
to go on with the production of Miracle
1ioi-l. 1 resolved against my better judg
ment, mil) gave tlie word for the first lot
of the cold to be delivered at my place at
midnight exactly. You know how my
afternoon was spent. AYhile at Mrs.
Ashtou's my better judgment and my
worse one had a scutlie, and I made up
my mind to decide upon nothing that
night, and certainly to commit myself to
nothing tiiat night. What you would call
the higher influence was at work." .
"1 'alias-Athena V"
"Yes, if you think that a good name.
Any way, I made up my mind to do noth
ing definite in the interest of Miracle Gold
that night. 1 set my dummy figure that
figure was burned up; not 1. 1 am goiug
fast. I there no cab? I can hardly
breathe. Have you seen Miss Ashton
"1 have."
"Since yesterday af.ernoon?"
They were standing at a doorstep.
Leigh had leaned his side against the
urea railings for support. His breathing
was terrible, and every now and then
he gasped, and clutched his hands to
gether. "if yon come to see me to-morrow, per
haps you may not come alone?"
1 l&tibury Unshed. He did not want to
make his confession just now.
"Perhaps I may not," he said. "Good

is certain to prove in future, as returns
of longevity nd common experience
alike show that it has proved in the

Rooms devoted to sleeping purposes
should above all things be light, cheer

room should be slept in in winter that

Do you know how the site of the ancien.
city of Jerusalem was chosen? There were
two brothers who had adjoining farms. Tbe
one biot her had a large family, the otbei
ha I no family. Tim brother with a large
family said: 'There Is my brother with no
family. He must be lonely, and I will try
to cheer him up. and I will take some of the
sheaves from my field in the night time and
set them over on his farm and say nothing
about it." The other brother said: "My
brother has a large family ana it is very
difficult for him to support thnm, and I will
help him aong, and I will take some ol
the s'leaves from my farm in the night time
nn 1 set tbom over on his farm and say noth
ing about it.1' So the work of transference
went on night after ni.-ht and night after
night, but every morning things seemed to
be just as they were, for, though sheaves
ha 1 b ren subtracted from each farm,
sheaves had also bfmn added, and the broth
ers wer perplexed and could not under
stand. But one night the brothers hap
pened to meet while making this generous
transference, and the spot where they met
wan so sacra 1 that it was chosen as the site
nfthoetiv f,f Jerusa era. It that tradition

tbe spot lit for some temple of oommeav
oratiou. 1 have offin spoken to yon about faith,
but this moi 1 speak to you about works,
or "faith without works is dead." I think
you will agree with me in the statement that
the great want In this world is morn praotl
eal religion. We want practical religion to
go into all merchandise. It will supervise
the labeling of goods. It will not allow a
man to Kay that a thing was made in one
fact or v when it was made in another. It
will not ailowthe merchant to say that watch
was manufactured in Geneva when it was
ito du fact u red in Massachusetts. It will not
ndow the merchant to say that wine eame
from Madeira when it came from Ca'lfornia.
Practical religion will walk along by the
store shelves and tear off all the tags that
make misrepresentation. It will not allow
the merchant lo say that is pure eoffee when
dandelion root and chieory and other ingred
ients go into it It will not allow hiru to say
that is pure sugar when there are in it sand
anil ground glass.
When practical religion gets its full swing
In the w rid, it wid go down the street and
it will come to that shoe store and rip off the
fictitious soles of uiay a One looking pair of
slioss and show that it is pasteboard sand
wiche 1 between tbe sound leather. Aod this
practical religion will go right Into a gro
cery store and it will pull out tbe plugs of all
the adulterated sirups, and it will dump into
the ash barrel in front of the store tho cassia
bark lhat is sold forcinnamon atidthe brick
dust that is sold for cayenne pepper, and it
will shako out tb Prussian blue from the tea
leaves, an I It will sift irora tbe flour plasier
of parts and bone dust and soapstone. and it
will by ehemical aualysis separate the one
quart of water from the few honat drops of
cow's milk, and It will throw out tne live
animalcules from the brown sugar.
There tas been'so mucu a tulteration of
articles of food that it is an amazement to
me that th'-r" is a healthy man or woman lc
America. H"aven only knows wuat they
put into the spices nnd iuto the sugars and
uto the butter and into tbe apothoearv drug.
But chemical analysis and the microscope
have made won lerful revelations. Theboard
of health in Massachusetts analyzed a great
amount of what was called pure coffee and
loun l it notoue particle of ooffee. Iu Eng-
and there is a law that forbids the putting
of alum in bread. Tbe publio authorities
examined lifty-oce packages of bread and
found them all guilty. The honest physi
oian, writing a prescription, does not know
bm that it may bring death instead of health
to hi- patient, because there may be one of
i lie drugs weakened by a che .per art cle,
and another drug may be in full force, and
so the prescription may have just the oppo
site effect intended. Oil of wormwood war
ranted pure from Boston was found to have
iony-oue per cent, of rosin and alcohol and
chloroform. Scammony is one of the most
valuable medical drugs. It is very rare,
ery precious. It is tbe sap of the gum of a
ree or a bush in Syria. Ihe root of tbe tree
is exposed, an incision is made into the root,
aod then shells are placed at this incision to
catch the sap or tn gum as it exudes. It is
very precious, this scammony. But the
peasant mixes it with a cheaper material;
. hen it is t:iken to Aleppo, and the merchant
i here mixes it with a cheaper material; thon
it comes on to the wholesale druggist iu Lon
don or New York, and be mixes it with a
cheaper material: then it comes to the retail
druggist, and he mixes it with a cbeapet
material, and by tne time the poor sick man
gels it Into kis bottle it la ashes and chalk
and sand, and some of what has been called
pure scaim.iony after analysis has been
lound to be l o scammony at all.
Now, practi -al religion will yet rectify all
this. It will co to those hypocritical pro
fessors or religion who got a "corner in
corn and wheat in Chicago and New York,
sending pi ices up and up until they were
beyond the reach ot the poor, keeping these
breanstuns in tneir own nanus, or control
ling them until tne prices going np and up
ami up, tnev were, alter awnile, reaav to
sell, and they fold out, making themselves
millionaires in one or two years, trying to
fix the matter up wilh the Lord by building
a church or a university or a bospttal. lelud-
iD't themselves with theldei that the Lord
would be so pleased with tbs gift He would
forget thi niriudie. Now, as such a man
may not have auy liturgy in which to say
bis prayers, I will compose for him one
wh'ch he practically is making "Oh, Lord,
we, ny getting a 'corner in Drea stuns,
swindled the people of tbe United States oul
of 4 10,0:. 0.000 and made suffering all up and
down tbe laud, and we won d like to com
promise this matter With Theel Thou know
est it was a scaly job, but then It was smart.
aiiv, here we compromise it. Take one pel
cent, or the profits, an t with that one pel
cent, you can build an asylum for these pool
m serab'.e rag muffins of the street, and 1
will take a yacht and go to Europe, forevei
and ever. Amen."
A'i, my fr en .s, if a mm hath gotten bli
' state wrong u'ly and he build a Hue ol
hospita's aud universities Jrom here to

in him. He goes into a great, long Back

There has got to be a new departure in re
ligion. I do not say a new religion. Oh,
do, but tbe oi l religion brought to new ap
pliances. In our time we have bad the
daguerreotype aud the ambrotvpe and tlie
photograph, but It is tho same old sun, and
these aits are only new appliances of the old
sunlight. So this glorious gospel is just
what we want to photograph the image ot
God on one soul and daguerreotype it on an
other scut. Not a new gospel, but tne old
gospel put o new work. In our time we
1 ave bad thi telegraphic Invention, and the
telephonic in-en i n, and the electric light
inveui ion, but they are all children of old
iwtric'ty, an element that the philosopher
