It was easy to u; I love r
Under a summer sky,
When the boiirs went slow and the hast
hummed low.
Am the wiuils went whispering by.
Kor we were young and happy,
Nutliiu of life koew we;
And what more sweet than with careless
To wander in A ready T
To-day, in a book forjtotten.

Do you reiuembiT the moonlight?
The path to the lover's tryst?
And do you sometimes, 1 wondea
Think of the past and me?
And wish some day we could ateal away
And wander in A ready?
Ab. no. 'tis a foolish fancy.
The dream is dreamed and over.
And you hare forgotten the dear.
When I was your royal loTer;
For we were two weary worldlings.
Seldom from care set free,

Detroit Free Press,
Inspector Hookyer had served hts
twenly-nve years Id tbe detective force,
and bis colleagues were entertaining
him at a little farewell dinner. In an
ticipation of his forthcoming retirement.
The chairman bavlujj eulogized the
gumt of the evening to an extent that
brought a blush to the face of that case
bardcoed officer, the Inspector rose to
reply, aud at the finish he said:
"The chairman bus said that I never
let a man slip through my Angers after
1 bad om-e got ou his track, but I am
sorry to say lie Is wrong. 1 am bound
to acknowledge that once an offender
Aas too clever for me."
Tell us about It," arose apontaneous
ly from almost every throat, and In-epec-tor
Hookyer, In response to tbe re
quest, gave the story.
"It was a good niariy years ago now
when I had intrusted to me a case of a
younji woman named Eliza Tlilck
brooin, who had been found dead (evi
dently murdered by having her throat
cut) lu some Ileitis adjoining a canal
near a town lu Lancashire. She bad
been a domestic servant, and was of a
very retiring, staid disposition, and bore
an Irreproachable character. Her
friends lived !u quite another part of
the country, and her mistress bad no
knowledge of her keeping company or
anything of that kind. Kor some time
I bad considerable dllTiculty lu fixing
the crime or any reason for It upon
anyone, but at lust, after a lot of In
quiry, I ascertained that she bad been
out walking with a man named Lam
prey, who lived near Stockport. In Che
Kblre, some thirty miles from where
Elizk Tbickbroom resided.
"It seemed that the girl bad been In
the habit of spending her holiday, when
she had a day off. lu going to Stockport.
where I-aniprey met her, and that she
Lad become engaged to him, but that,
bearing something to his discredit, she
had refused to have anything more to
do with him, and. so far, nothing fur
ther was known to Implicate Lam prey
in the crime, but I, of course, at once
took the train to Stockport and proceed
ed to hunt up Lamprey, aud to make
Inquiries in the town where be resided.
"I kuew nothing about him except bis
nauie, but from the local police aud
cautious iiuesttoud of one and another.
I ascertained that he had been a sailor
and was then a steeplejack,' aud one
of the best climbers known.
" Mack Lamprej:' cried one man to
whom 1 b:id spoken. 'Ah, he can climb,
for sure, can .lack! Why. he climbed to
the very top of yon steeple," pointing to
tbe church hard by, which had a spire
remarkably tall and slender, and very
hard to mount. 'After the storm had
damaged the weather cock Jack climo
ed and fixed it all alone for the parson,
and he refused to be paid for it.'
"The man seemed to look upon l.nra
prey'a refusing payment as more won
derful than his climbing the steeple, and
peruupM be was right. Well, bit by bit,
I found little tilings which, when pieced
together, pointed unmistakably to Jack
Lamprey as the murderer. He bail, un
til recently, been seen frequently In and
about Stockport with the girl, but for
the last two or three months she bud
not been oliserved in his company. He
bad been a Jolly sort of fellow, but since
the girl had censed her visits It bad
been noticed that he bad become
moody aud silent, and he hud taken to
drink a good deal, although be had pre
viously beeu a most abstemious man.
"He was away from his lodgings ou
the night of the murder, and on his re
turn early the next day he was travel
ctaltied, us If he hud walked a long way.
His landlady remembered that be told
her he had fallen down lu some chem
ical works where he had been on a Job,
and had stained his clothes, and she
recollected Immediately after hla ar
rival home hp had busied himself brush
ing and sponging his garments.
"There was sufficient to Justify me In
obtaining a warrant: but he was away
on a Job no one knew where exactly,
except that It was somewhere near Liv
erpool and It was useless for me te
leave Stockport, where I had the best
chance of catching blm, on a wild goose
chase to Liverpool without better In
formation. My only course was to wait
and keep quiet till he came back, wbicb
be wait expected to do tbe following
"I took every precaution to prevent
anyone knowing that be was 'wanted,'
but some 'pal must have got to suspect
It and given hlin warning. The police
In Liverpool had been wired to, and bad
kept watch of all trains In the direction
of Stockport, and toward evening of
tbe second day I received the Intimation
that a man resembling his description
had taken the train and was on bis
way. Assisted by a local detective whe
knew the man, 1 watched every pas
senger out of the train on Its arrival at
Stockport, but no Jack Lamprey alight

Iefi. alia, on inquiring or the guard. It
seemed pretty certain that be bad got
oat at Cbeadle. a station a few miles
outside of Stockport.
"It was tbe beginning of winter and
nigbt had set In, t j that It was extreme
ly doubtful If we could follow the man.
but we took a train wbicb was just go
hug out of tbe station, and in a few
minutes were at Cbeadle. I there made
certain that my man bad got out. He
had booked for Stockport and bad given
up bis ticket, but do all we could we
could get no trace of blm. He bad left
the station Immediately on leaving the
train; do on knew blm and we could
find no one to tell us anything more. So.
hoping perhaps to pick up a rlew on tbe
road, we walked back to Stockport and
on to the town where be lived, wbicb
waa a few miles tbe other aide, but our
tranin was In vain.
"We bad left Instructions at Stockport
for Lamprey's lodgings to be watched,
but by some blunder a man bad not
been sent there for some time, and.
much to my anger and disgust, when I
arrived at bis bouse I found that be had
been there, Just for Ave minutes, hla
landlady aald, and bad left again with
bag ef clothes.
"I waa mighty savage, you can guess.
Vth with myself and with the police of
tbe place for not keeping a better look
out, but it was no use losing my head
over It, and I at once set to work dog
gins bis footsteps after be had left his
lodgings. lu tbe public nouse which be
frequented I came across a man to
whom I had previously spoken, who
seemed to know Lamprey In a very dis
tant sort of way. and I turned tbe con
versation on the man I wanted.
"'Ah! I've Just seen blm.' said tbe
fellow. 'About an hour ago or mayhap
a little more. He waa going to Macclee
lleld. be said, to catch the early train
in the morning Into Staffordshire, when
he's got another Job. He seemed In a
mighty hurry, too.'
"I had reason afterward to think that
this man was the one who bad given
Laniprey warning, but whether that
was so or not bis information that night
appeared to be correct, for I met several
people who had seen Jack going across
the fields toward Marple, which was
his best way of getting to Macclesfield
from the place be lived In; but when I
arrived at Marple station I was at fault
again, for no train bad been out for
quite two hours, aud although I waited
till the last train to Macclesfield had
left Lamprey did not show up.
"Tried and vexed beyond description
I tramped back and got what rest 1
could, hoping that something might
turn up In the morning to assist me in
recovering the ground 1 bad lost, but
afraid that for once I had let my quarry
slip, and that 1 might never catch blm.
now that he was aware be was being
"Sure enongh, something did turn u
In the morning, and something which
confirmed my fears, though I felt that
I hud got my man dead if I had missed
him alive. The postman came around
soon after 7, before it was quite light
and I had only Just got up when a boy
came running In wltb a letter, which
bud been delivered at the police station
It bore the Marple postmark, and wn
addressed to The Detective from Lou
"Tearing It open. I read something
like this:
' "From John Lamprey. I know you
are after me, and I know what for. I
managed to keep out of your way to
night and I meant to try aud get down
south, but you are sure to have me.
sooner or later, so I've determined to
make an end of it. Look at the church
steeple when you get this to-morrow
"The church steeple was a tall and
pri'ninent feature whichever way you
turned, snd I had only to go to tbe end
of the street to get a full view of it.
When I got there and looked up I saw
something that gave me a start. In the
uncertain light of the early morning 1
r-ould discern against the gray sky.

loops which serve for a ladder on the
side of the spire, the figure of a man!
" 'So much for Jack Lamprcyr I said
to myself, as I hurried to the police
stntlon. 'He has saved me any more
"Hy the time I had been to the station
And back to the church It was broad
daylight, and of course tbe body hang
ing aloft bad been seen and a crowd
had already collected, every one recog
nizing It as that of Jack Lamprey.
" A strange freak,' I remarked to the
sergeant who was wltb me.
" 'I don't think so,' he replied. 'Jack
bad made himself a sort of hero over
tolng up the spire to repair tbe vane and
there was nothing more likely to occur
to bis mind than to finish bis career at
the same place.
"There was no one round Stockport
who would venture up tbe spire and a
telegram bad to be sent to Stalybrldge
for a man to come and get the body
down. It was past midday before the
steeplejack arrived and by that time
half Stockport had heard of tbe affair.
Work waa discarded and an Immense
crowd collected to witness the sight.
Every foot was watched by thonsands
of eyes, and when at last he approached
the swaying body of Jack Lamprey the
tongues which had been loudly wag
ging were hushed as by common con
sent. "I shall never forget the few minutes
that followed, while tbe steeplejack
;now looking the size of a little child)
made his way very cautiously close up
to the body, and, fixing a rope to It,
made his preparations for lowering it
to bis assistant, who was waiting on tbe
top of the square tower to receive It.
There was something awfully sad and
solemn about It all!
"In due course tbe assistant received
the corpse, which he let down to the
ground and everyone around me re
marked that he swung it roughly to tbe
earth, without showing tbe respect
which might hare been looked for. In
(act some actually called out "Sunnier
"But all at once tbe bush which had
fallen Upon tbe crowd was broken by
storm of jeers and laughter! Tbe thlnj
which had given us all trouble wai
nothing but a guyt And I never fel
such a fool In all my life.
"So that he might get nearly a day's
tart Lamprey had cleverly mialed me
the night before. While I had been
wasting my time at Marple he had been
employed In stuffing tbe suit of clothe
which he bad taken from hla lodging
with straw, making a very passable rep
resentation of himself, and In tbe mid
dle of the night he had climbed tbe
steeple (which was child's play to blm)
and left bis efflgj to deceive me and lull
me Into Inaction.
"I need not dwell npon the chaff I re
reived. It Is too. painful, even now. foi
oie to recall without annoyance, but you
may be sura that I quickly made myself
scarce, "
"Did the fellow get clear?" asked
someone. "Yes. He took the train to
the east coast and succeeded in getting
to Holland unnoticed," replied Hookyer.
"But be hanged himself In earnest some
considerable time afterward, leaving
a letter behind admitting hla guilt and
stating that his conscience troubled blm
so that he could not bear to live." Tit.

The Best Apple Sauce.
"And we had tbe best apple sauce,"
said a young girl, when telling of a
visit to a dear old aunt.
"Wherein did it differ from all other
apple sauce?" the mother queried quiz
zically. For tbe mother thought sbe
knew all there was to know about apple
"Well, I don't know," said the younf
person, "but it was tne neat, ana sne
put the sugar in it before she cooked It,
and it waa so different from any other."
It so happened that tbe mother bad
occasion to make some apple sauce for
tea, and not to be outdone by any
auntie, however worthy sbe might be.
tbe mother also put the sugar tn bofore
she cooked the apple, but tbe young
person said it wasn't a bit like auntie's.
Now I happened to know Just bow
this auntie really did make ber apple
sauce, and will tell you, besides giving
you another way, too.
Peel tart apples and quarter them; if
very large cut the quarters once In two.
Have two quarts when peeled, and put
tbem Into a granite kettle; pour over
them two cups of sugar aud set on tbe
back part of tbe range, when there la
a fire in It Let tbem rook slowly until
perfectly clear. Cover them closely.
I didn't say anything about the wa
ter? No. and that Is Just where tbe dif
ference comes In; the apples are cook
ed in tbelr owu Juice, and this, combin
ed with the sugar, makes a rich and
mos: delicious syrup, which will almost
Jell when cold.
Don't he afraid of their burning to
the kettle, though tbey will If put over
tbe hot fire at tirst; It will not take lous
for enough Juice to exude to cook them,
and they may lie stirred until smooth
or the pieces nmy be left whole. Tliej
must lie cooked until tbey look cle.i:

t mi Story of Bcflawd Woman aod
Her Wretched End.
The romances of tbe London work
bousea would form a thrilling- and pa
thetic record, and for sad vicissitudes
and 111 luck few cases could surpass
that of an Inmate of one of these pool
bouan who haa recently passed away.
A lady visiting tbe Institution wan
struck by the evident reflneuieut of an
elderly woman in tbe Infirmary, who
waa a Norwegian by birth, but who
spoke English and other languages flu
eutly. She had all tbe beaux restea of
a very lovely woman, which years of
poverty and 111 health could not de
stroy. She waa very reticent as regarl
ed lier past, but was so evidently a gen
tlewoman that tbe sj-in pathetic visitor
exerted herself to obtain admlsal m for
tbe invalid into a home for the dying.
In which she might pass her last days
lu peace and amid congenial siinur.d
lnga. Hefore ber death the stranger told
her story, and a strange and romantic
one It proved to he. At 17 she was In
formed by her parents that she was to
lie married, aud although she had no
voice lu tbe matter nothing could have
been more satisfactory. Her husband
waa handsome, cultured aud devoted.
They lived in a charming country
house, surrounded by every luxury,
and four children were torn to the
couple. Tbe only drawback to tbe per
fect happiness of tbe yov.ig wife were
the long and frequent absences of her
husband, which he attributed to busi
ness, but would explain no further.
At last there came a i.iy wheu til's
man returned no more from his accus
tomed Journey, but sent bis lawyer In
stead, from whom tbe bewildered nod
heartbroken woman learned hat her
nupposed husband was the king of
and that, owing to pressing reasons,
the liaison should terminate. An ade
quate sum was settled on her and tbe
children, and, wishing to break entire
ly with the past, she cam? to live In
I-omlon. After some years she married
an Englishman and shortly after the
king died, leaving a lump sum to her.

"I'm going to start them, my boy, but
It will take tbe sun and rain months to

"These," he said to Willie, "will make

"Are they large enough for a big man

Decline In Pearls.
A curloua effect of the plague In In
dia has been a sudden Increase in the
number of pearls reaching the Iondon
market, and a consequent marked fall
In prices. This is not due to unusual
industry on tbe part of the divers, but
to the fact that the native dealera at
rouibay have been In such haste to
quit the stricken city that they have
eagerly disposed of their wares at far
below tbe customary market value.
One English firm of Importers of In
dian pearls has accumulated a stock
which, if placed suddenly on the mar
ket, it is estimated, would send down
quotations fully 25 per cent.
