to describe my suffering In those years of

In tattle efforts to p>-t well, and was discour
aged and ready to die. At this time I was
unable to lie down iri bed, had to sit up all the
time, and was unable to walk without

A> if faces of aider
manic looking
men as they jostled each other In the
streets, and the women looked weak
and wilted. The very horses hung their
heads as fliey stumbled along with their
heavy loads.
It was in the great city of the
"world's fair," and I was then a mod
est little womau in a literary way on
one of the big newspapers. The ex
citement attendant upon the work fas
cinated inc. and, as I had always led a
rollicking, jolly, bohemian life, I was
in my element.
I hud wandered about aimlessly for a
greater part of the forenoon, finding
nothing of interest, when I was sum
moned back to the office by a fellow re
porter whom I met on the street.
I was betrinning to lose my temper.
Everything had gone wrong that day.
I lit.il awakened with a severe headache
and the intense heat had aggravated it
to such an extent that my b.-ain seemed
to Ii •on fire. I had missed seeing Jack
in the morning. Jack was tny sweet
heart and he was going away that day
to IK- gone ever so loug. 1 knew he was
| obliged by business interests to leave
at any cost, and so I carried with juc
the consciousness that he had left with
! out saying good-by and that it was the
first tine- in the five years that I hail
known him.
Musing iq this unpleasant way, I
sv. nng open the portals of the great
gray doors with much more energy
, than a small woman should exhibit, to
j find the editor, notwithstanding all tlie
, heat , looking as fresh anil happy as the
' cool violets that used to blossom under
the -.pre ad ing branches in the old home
i of which I sometimes dreamed.
It was refreshing, truly, and when
; he detaile d me to do a bit of work that
| took me out into a country town my
restlessness vanished, and I lieeamft
once more rny happy self.
I walked down to the station with
lighter step, and armed with a tablet
and other articles of journalistic war
fare- I ensconced myself op the shady
side of the car and relapsed Into a state
ot delightful semi-unconsciousness.
How long I remained thus I do not
know, but I gradually became aware,
with that indefinable iustinct with
which one sometimes becomes pos
sessed, that I was the object of n steady
gaze. I raised my eyes, and as I did so
an irresistible impulse impel!cd me to
look across the aisle.
Have you ever seen a den of snakes
that writhe and cling with their bodies
together, their hooded heads raised to
strike, and those awful serpentine
tongues darting in and out? Did you
ever stand transfixed by the brilliancy of
those glittering eyes? It was such a
fascination that possessed mo. Yet ill
the man's outward appearance there was
nothing that should have repelled mo.
On the contrary, I found myself uncon

almond nalla, rind the general appear

lie was looking at me Intently and
his eyes possessed a peculiar glitter
that I had never seen in human cye§
before. As my glance met his he seemed
about to rise and cOmo to me. t tried
to break the spell. I could not until,
after what seemed to me ages, the tralo
shot under a bridge and the darkness
Immediately surrounding closed out
those bulls of Are with their red flashes.
1 sank down almost lifeless in my
beat and placed my hands to my throb
bing head. I tried to fancy it a hallu
cination, but 1115- bettor sense predom
inated. A thousand thoughts flashed
over rrie and when the darkness cleared
i!i i? r 1
tiway and I was once more In the day
light, hy a mighty effort and without
venturing another glance, I look a seat
in a different purt of the car and re
versed the cushion. In vain I tried to
shake otf the impression. It was
stronger than I, so I gave up trying and
endeavored to reason away my fears.
What had I to do with fear? Was it
like me to be afraid'/ Where was the
courage necessary for future under
takings if I could be so distressed by a
single pair of eyes in broad daylight?
Itca.sonliig thus I reached my station
and ordered a rapid drive to my des
tination. Out of the car and away I
felt l<ctt«r. I tried to think it was all
a piece of folly, but I could not forget
those terrible eyes, and I remember
with what actual dread I looked into
the face of the first person with whom
I talked.
As time passed I began to feel more
myself, and as I dined just preparatory
to my return I had shaken the feeling
from me and could laugh at what I waa
rlcaocd to term the fancies of a brain
Vcrtaakcd aud heated.
It wi»s late when I arrived in E ,
and after a stay of four or five hours it
was Just gathering dusk.

As I reached the depot an I heard in
the distance the roar and rumble of the
approaching home ward-bound train I
wondered us it came In, snorting and
shrieking like a thing of life, if we
were not more than human, a race
whose bruin could fashion such ponder

silly weakness get the better of mo I
turned resolutely to my freshly cut

read until I grew tired and until the

up gran<Uy, and in tile mellow ngnt tnc
flyinjf clouds and souttllng'hhatiovvs made
a weird picture. A strong breeze was
rising, which Vrought to me the fresh
scent of hay fields, and I could almost
hear the drowsy twitterinps of the
birds. The sweeping foliage of the
trees as we shot by bowed and &wayed
in the nifrht breeze, like dark phan
toms, pausing just long enough to salut«>
each other in a grand courtesy before
the revelry of a wild night dance. It
brought to me the lines:
•• The day la merging into the night.
Frotu the purple Into the gray,
An<i along the cattle trail over the hills.
The flocks are wending their way
The heather nods Itself to sleep,
Hocked by the breeze of the nlifht.
The swaying boughs have assumed strong
In the weird fantastic light"
We whirled by farmhouses standing
ip the shadow, am? fields heavy with
fruit waiting for the sickle. The
soughing of the wind had played upon
my ear until it seemed my window had
become transformed into an .Eolian
harp that was playing the story of my
life, and with the silver moon, and the
trees like tossing plumes, and the
shadows—l listened.
The soft melody of the tender, witch
ing strains was the tiny fingers of my
childhood as they twined about my
mother's heart, and then they incrensed
and grew as they passed from child
hood into girlhood, losing the subtle
sweetness and jwirc note, but increas
ing in the volume of grand sound and
harmonizing chords—ever increasing,
ever changing, shifting, restless and
longing. Then a strange, weird striin
swept across the strings, so intensely
bweet with wild imaginings that tke
very air seemed to grow thick and
warm and the strings quivered and
wavered and sobbed and moaned in an
agony of pain, anil cried out in anguish
and seemed to break into a ghostly dis
cord as we reached a wild prairie
The moon was out silvery white,
banked by durk clouds, while a low,
rambling farmhouse stood silhouetted
against the plains.
The train shot*<n. Station after sta
tion was passed until we were almost
home again. 1 had grown drowsy, and
throwing my heavy traveling wrap
about me. I rested against the cushion.
Suddenly I raiser! my head and looked
around tlit car. 1 cannot describe the
force that compelled me. but I am quite
sure that had tny life been weighed in
the balance again .t my inclinations I
could not have done otherwise. I saw
the same terrible eyes fastened UJK-IU
me with that awful glitter, and tliey
expressed more than mortal tongue
could have done —hatred, revenge, cru
elty, flendishness.
I grew sick at heart. I could under
stand now the fear that must possess
the poor little animal the prey of the
larger. My limbs trembled. Sly head
reeled. My teeth chattered like ca»-
tcnets, and it seemed to me that the
beating of my heart could be heard all
over the car, above the roar and din of
tlie rattling train. A desperate thought
flashed through tny mind. I would
speak to the conductor and ask his pro
tection, or that fatherly looking gentle
man in the corner who resembled a
"physician. But what should 1 say? Tell
him I was afraid of a man on the train
who was looking at me? (#0 to the
fatherly looking Old gentleman with a
blanched face and trembling limbs, and
beg him to protect me from some one
wlio had done nothing to molest me?
What would they say, or saying noth
ing, what might they think? My mind
was a chaos of conflicting emotions.
I looked around the ear." c,vuieutly
the occupants did not notice my agita
tion—those who were awake; a great
many were in various stages of repose,
and I can remember the half frantic
thought that came to me, imagining
how they would wake from their slum
ber in wild affright should I do what I
was most sorely tempted to do—lose my
control and give volco to my nervous
ness in a truly feminine shriek.
How absurd it would be! I would do
nothing. If the very heavens fell I
would not place myself in such a ridicu
lous position. 1 tried to think of all the
bad things I had overdone. They were
too many and 1 gave it up.
It is claimed by tliat class of people
termed enthusiasts that actual dissolu
tion is not unpleasant, but is preceded by
a state of coma, so deliglitfiU, in fact,
that people who have walked hand in
hand with death almost to the shores of
the other World have rebelled U|M»II be
ing awakened.
1 think I must have relapsed into a
state something very much akin to this,
for when the train steamed into the
depot I was forced to arouse myself,
and I made my way rapidly through
the ear to the outward entrance.
It was very dark. The wind blew a
gale and the air llad grown chill. I
hastened rapidly through the depot
without encountering a familiar face
and picked my way over the pavements
under the gaslight.
There was neither a cab nor a car in
sight, and after some little delibera
tion I decided not. to wait. Uathcrihg
my skirts alxml me I disappeared down
a dark street. There was always a
policeman on that corner I knew, and
j could ap|»-al to him I had been out
many times before at night witliont ex
periencing any alarm, but now I was
timid and I looked In vain for the
policeman's familiar form. The very
lamp |«>!its seemed to stretch out spec
tral arms that were mocking my fear,
and the massive buildings on either
side of the street looked glim and foro
It might liavu IM.-eu a city of the dead,
everything was so silent not a soul 111
sight. The gas lights had grown dim.
I looked about IUC nervously and rec
ognized with horror a form that had
grown to me terribly familiar, f threw
self-control to the winds and htarted to
ruu. There were only two blocks more
and 1 felt sure 1 could reach the end of
the way.
On, oh, 1 sped, my heart beating with
such rapidity that it almost suffocated
me. One block more and I would be
safe. With a courage born of despera
tion I made the final effort. I looked
around. Tht; form was gaining U]K>U
mc rapidly. Would I ever reach it? At
last my foot was on the step and I
'" —L
clutched at the balustrade, .lust at that
moment I felt a clutch upon my shoul
der. My head was is-nt backward by
the contact. I felt a but breath u[ioii
my face. A hand clutched me with a
grasp of Iron and my face was uplifted
to another, held there by some terrible
magnetism. I closed my eyes resolute
ly. At thst moment I wiut stronger
than I had ever been. T thought of my
mother and the dear friends who had
all been MO good to me. My time had
come and 1 Was iMug
I felt the keen edge ot a knife as it
cut into the flesh. I can remember how
it felt—that it did not cause me groat
pain—and then I knew no more.

Lilla was bending over me. t had had
a terrible straggle with death and I
had a serious wound They told me all
about it when I grew strong again. He
was Prof. Joseph, a hypnotist of great
renown, and whose wife, a little lady
resembling me greatly, became i:inano
and was confined in an asylum. The
shock was so great that it had event
ually unsettled his reason and he was
constantly pursued by the fear that she
was trying to murder him. He had met
me, of course, accidentally, and the re
semblance that I bore to his wife was

Japanese art is supreme in wood and

clares in "Seas and Lands" there ia
nothing known to him in Europe that
comes near what Japanese workmen
can achieve. A specimen of ivory carv
ing was shown to him which repre
sented a bag of rice with two or three
dozen rats In and upon it. Every rat
was as individual in character, position
and uetion as if a special portrait had
been taken of him; and the web of the
bag, the glistening grains of rice and
the sleek fur of the rodents could not
have l>een better expressed in painting.

policeman informed the proprietor of
the store tliat if he intended to continue
the wrestling ou his premises, he must
engage a posse of policemen to restrain
the crowd. He was invited into the
store and melted into smiles when lie
saw that the wrestlers were carvings in

When we were in one of the locks,
one I reinemlter served by a boy and an
idiot, I was told that these places (or
are they things?) are sometimes called
"Doctor Lock," and for this reason:
lloat horses not unselJom dislocate
their shoulders; and no wonder, such
light shoulders as one sees towing sueli
heavy loads! In such cases some boat

A Contrivance Whose Cost Is Saved In a
Single Season.
A useful contrivance is a plant pro
tector for early melons, vucuuibcrs,
squash, tomatoes, beans, etc., made of
wire. It is cheap, convenient and
durable. It consists of a No. H wire
hoop 15 inches in diameter and three
pieces bent nearly in shape of a half
circle and looped at the two ends
around the hoop, crossing each other at
the top. They uri? secured where they
cross by ls-ing tied by a piece of small
annealed wire. The wire framework
can be covered with old newspaper* or
strainer, or cheesecloth costing three
or four cents per yard. When put on,
a little soil on the edges in several
places will prevent the wind from
blowing It off. The strainer cloth
covers might, lie sewed fast to the
framework, but rats and mice are apt
to make nests among them when stored
away. These protectors can l>e made
of several sizes. For tomato plants
they might be a few inches taller than
for melons. They can be made to order
by tinners anil win:workers at £1
per hundred. Gardeners and truck
growers can sometimes save the cost
of these protectors three times over in
one season.—-farm and Home.

A clergyman, writing in the lloiuiletio
Review, unlit ions one of those strange
coincidences which will sometimes hap
pen, even in church.
After the morning sermon I read the
notices for the week and then an
nounced the closing hymn - Nuinlier So
and-so. At that moment I saw one of
the deacona coming down the aisle and
paused to hear what he had to say,
which was that I hud forgotten to tfive
a notice of the ladles' uieeting.
I gave It accordingly, apologizing to
the congregation for my forgetfulneas,
and again announced the IIIUUIMT of
the hymn and proceeded to rmul it.

be filled with honey by the time the
bees are hatched, and no other system
is as sure to give one set of combs full
of honey for the extractor in lh« very

this system is that all tbe colonies pro

comb-honey I tier the section cases on
the super containing the brotal, and
push the Iters to start all the comba

extract the honey from the combs in

also works perfectly If applied imme

difference iu the manipulation in this
