The old cash box is empty, ma, my wallet's long been flat, The farm looks wuss and wuss each year —no one kin question that; The crops don't seem to grow no more, the old boss can't be rid, And I've been thinkin' lately, ma, that somethin' must be did. At first I thought of sellin' out, and asked Judge Mead's advice— He said as how I couldn't sell the place at any price; "Your house and barn is perfect wrecks, your land's all swamp," says he, And, though it went agin the grain, I had to half at J. BBLLBFRONTO, Mulligan's Block, But, there, Amanda, don't take on—for I've thought up a scheme That soon '11 make you feel as if you're livin' in a dream; v We'll take a dozen city folks to board the summer through, And there '11 be racin' colts for me, and stylish frocks for you! You think the farm ain't good enough? My dear, it ain't the way Things really is that brings the city folks, it's what the papers say;"" I'll advertise this dismal place as "Hill-crest- by-thesun"— If that don't take them city folks, then I don't know 'em cone. I'll say it is a healthy spot—not addin', though, "forfrogs;" I'll speak of golf and tennis grounds—not mentionin' the bogs, I'll say the fare is simple, for that alius brings 'em out— And we'll be awful careful, ma, none on 'em gits the gout. So I'll write out the notice, usin' all the brain I've got; While you fix up the attic with a wash-stand and a cot; And you kin bet them cityites, before we're more than done. Will come a-rushin' with their trunks to Hillcrest-by the Sun! THE SECRET OUT. Jorlette will be on board the 7.30 mail train. Follow him to Liverpool. Will meet you there. Look sharp! CATHCART. This was the wording of the telegram I received one wet, ugly night last December. I was sitting in my little snuggery back of my office, before a blazing grate, with my feet in slippers and my body in a warm dressing-gown. I had a mug of hot punch and cold mince pie on the table beside me, along with an uncut novel and a genuine Havana, with which intended to regale myself presently. And although I had a very strong anxiety to secure Jorlette, it must be confessed that I was altogether too comfortably situated to relish going out into the cold that dismally dirty night. This telegram was from my chief, who, I might as well say, was a detective, and I had followed that thankless and precarious business for several years. People considered me very successful in working up difficult cases, but I was never quite satisfied with myself. I wonder if any man ever is? This same Jorlette had given us a great deal of trouble. We had never had so keenly cunning a spirit to cope with. Strategy was matched with strategy, diplomacy with diplomacy; and scores of times, when we were sure of him, he had slipped from under our fingers like a flea and left us wondering how he managed it. Perhaps it might be well to explain that Pierre Jorlette was a murderer, upon whose head was set a price of £2,000 by the crown. A Frenchman and nobleman by birth, a gentleman by education, he had when very young married a beautiful English girl, with whom he passed two years of unalloyed happiness. At the end of that time some fearful shadow came between them—none knew of what nature—and the inhuman husband stabbed his wife to the heart. Her confidential maid witnessed the deed, and attempted to save the life of her mistress, but Jorlette fell upon her with savage ferocity, and left the two corpses lying together side by side. These are the facts as brefiy as I can place them before you. Of course there were many minor circumstances not worth recording,. as they have little bearing upon the short story 1 am writing- It seemed from this telegram that Jorlette was to be on the 7.30 train. I wondered how Cathcart bad got his information, but he had armies of spies constantly working for him, and probably some of them had made the discovery. I had only to follow instructions. For the hundredth time I took Jorlette's photograph from my pocketbook and examined the features of the murderer. It was a singularly handsome face that I saw—clearly cut, with large hazel eyes shaded fc$ long lashes, a mouth delicate and sensitive as a woman's, a high, rather narrow forehead, half bidden in clustering curls of auburn hair, a form rather spare, yet well knit, and a harfd symmetrical and rounded as a woman's. The picture would have answered splendidly for that of a sentimental sonnet-making poet—but for a murderer it was a dead failure. Nevertheless, somewhere in the past, before crime had scathed him, Jorlette had sat for it. I changed my slippers for boots, and got myself inside my fur overcoat, stuffed a valise with brown paper and blacking brushes, that I might appear a respectable traveler, and, looking at my watch, found I had just time to reach the station. The train stopped ten minutes for refreshments, and, taking the guard, who was an old friend of mine, sufficiently into my confidence, I was given an oppov- ®ffSouth Main Street. sill- • -v • P/fQBWXjBtOO.

It was a full train, but, singularly enough, there was not a red-headed man on board of it. Jorlette was red-headed, and, aside from that circumstance, he had a face which I flattered myself I could not readily mistake. As I stood irresolute, and feeling very much as if I had been fooled, there came toward me from the dining-room an in dividual, tall and spare, with a slouched hat, a white cravat, a huge piece of game pie in his hand—and this person had red hair! And dark eyes! I watched him closely. There was a certain dogged, skulking look about him; he would not meet my eye, and he walked off to the extreme end of the platform by himself, and remained there munching his pie until the last bell rang; and then he hurried on board with the air of one who felt that a great deal depended on his getting a seat. I was convinced that he was my man, though he was not altogether like the photograph. Still, faces and photographs differ a great deal, since to the picture there is little expression and no color— and do not the characteristics of a face depend more on color and expression than a mere outline of feature? He entered carriage No. 171, and at a hint the guard put me in the same van There were three persons already there beside my pie-eating friend and myself. An elderly gentleman, who was reading the Times wrong side up, and nodding blandly over its fascinating columns; a pair of rural lovers, lounging on each other's shoulders, and discussing peppermint drops together; and presently we were reinforced by an old lady in a very prim bonnet with brown ribbons, and bearing luggage in the shape of a birdcage, a basket with a cat in it, an umbrella, and a very large carpet sack. Jorlette had produced another section of pie, and was demolishing it vigorously, Seemingly he enjoyed it. Well, I suppose even a murderer may enjoy eating pie. Just as the train began to move the door opened and a young lady came hesitatingly forward. You know what helpless creatures women are on their feet in a bouncing swaying railway oar, and this young beauty was no exception. She tottered, and would have fallen, but I put out my arm and caught her, at the same time offering her the unoccupied seat at my side. She blushed rosily, thanked me in the sweetest voice I ever heard, and sank down on the cushion, covering my knees with billows of ruffling and fringing, and making me feel—well, not many removes from the gates of Paradise. A lovelier face I had never seen. The skin was fair and clear; the mouth sweet, sensitive and a little sad; the eyes dark and melting, and the beautiful dark brown hair, which hung over her shoulders in the prevailing style, was soft as floss silk, and rippled like the bosom of a meadow brook when it flows over a bed of pebbles. But so lost was I in contemplating the charms of this fair creature that I suddenly remembered that I was not ' 'looking sharp," as Cathcart had ordered me, and I turned to regard my unsuspecting Jorlette. If a criminal, he was a very self-possessed one. He had finished his pie, and was picking his teeth with a quill and furtively regarding his boots, which, by a peculiar tightness and stiffness of look, I judged were new ones. Occasionally he felt of them, as if, perhaps, bis corns were pinched, and once I was sure he muttered something like an oath as he rubbed his long white fingers over the locality of his great toe. There was nothing to be done with him until we reached Liverpool, unless be attempted to leave the train, so I might as well cultivate the acquaintance of my pretty little seat-mate. She was somewhat shy, but after a while I managed to overcome her reserve, and we chatted together like old friends. She had not been much from home,and was a little timid about traveling alone. She started nervously every time the car gave a lurch, and I deemed it my duty to put my arm around the back of the seat to calm her fears. She had such a horror of railway accidents, she said, after her Aunt Jane had predicted, before she left home, that something dreadful was going to happen to her; and then she lifted her large, melting eyes to my face, and I drew the arm down from the seat and let it rest on her shoulder. Men are the natural protectors of women, you Ijnow. We talked on various subjects. My sweet companion was very well informed and her language was simple and well chosen. Before I was hardly aware of it 1 bad told her that I was a detective, and that I was making this journey expressly to capture Jorlette—the notorious Jorlette. She shuddered and drew a little nearer to me. "Dear mel" she said, nervously, "it must be dangerous business. • This Jorlette, I have heard, is a dangerou character. Pray, oh, pray be -careful I" And she dropped her voice so near to a whisper, and threw so much expression into her beautiful eyes that I could not resist tenderly pressing the white hand HOLDS UP A CONGRESSMAN.—" At the end of the campaign," writes Champ Clark, Missouri's brilliant congressman, " from overwork, nervous tension, loss of sleep and constant speaking, I had about utterly collapsed. It seemed that all the organs in my body were out of order, but three bottles of Electric Bitters made me all right. It's the best all-around medi-oine ever sold over a druggist's counter."

Guaranteed by E N Smith, druggist, and W A Metcalf, Hazard-vUle. so near my own, and whispering, I am afraid something that would look absurd on paper. That was a very delightful trip to me, and I think it must have been not altogether unpleasant to the young lady, for her cheeks were red and her eyes bright as we approached the terminus. She w going to visit her sister, who lived two or three miles inland from Liverpool, so she had to leave me before my journey was ended. The train only halted for a moment, but I managed to press a warm kiss on her lips, and to beg her to give me her address, that I might call on her. She smiled archly up into my face. ' 'I will drop you a line within a week, Mr. Dayton," she said, sweetly. "Let me see—your first name is " "Alphonse. No. 341 T street, Liverpool, for the next ten days. Good by, darling!" and I kissed her again, and saw the door close behind her with a dull feeling of pain inside the left section of my waistcoat. But I resolutely put my pretty unknown one out of my mind, and devoted myself to looking sharp at Jorlette, who had evidently fallen asleep. Talk about the uneasiness of a guilty conscience, indeed !" At Liverpool Mr. Cathcart stepped into the car before any one had left it. He swept his eyes over the occupants, and a look of blank dismay settled on his face. "Thunderation!" cried he; "is it possible you have let him skip?" "He is there," said I, triumphantly, pointing to my red-headed fellow-passenger. "That," said Cathcart, in a tone of ineffable contempt. "Alf, you're a fool. That man is the Rev. John Pennicut, rector of St. Thomas's church, Cumber-well. How do you do, sir?" shaking hands with the pie-eater. As for me, I was looking around for a convenient knot-hole to crawl into,' but there seemed to be no such thing lying around loose. Cathcart turned upon me fiercely. "Where in the deuce is Jorlette?" he exclaimed savagely. "Did I not order you to look sharp?" "Yonder reverend gentleman was the only one on the train in any wise answering Jorlette's description," said I, doggedly. The guard came up at that moment and substantiated my statements, and Cathcart was obliged to swallow his mortification with as good grace as possible. His information relative to Jorlette's being a traveler by the 7.30 mai^had come from one of his most reliable men, but there had been some mistake somewhere. We were not to pocket the £2,000 reward in a hurry. A week afterward I received a letter, written on pink paper, perfumed, and elegant generally. I transcribe it:— "My Dear Mr. Dayton: Hereby I fulfil my promise of dropping you a line within the week. I am flourishing, and hope you are also. My Aunt Jane's presentiment did not prove prophetic. I am on my way to America, where I expect to be elected to Congress with the rest of my stripe. Give my love to oJd Cathcart. You bave no idea how funny it feels to have your lips pressed by a man's lips when you happen to be a man yourself. Sorry you are not to get the two thousand pounds, but self-preservation is the first law of nature. Faithfully yours, "PIERRE JORLETTE." Well, the secret was out! My pretty girl was the infamous murderer- himself, and Cathcart and I were done brown. We kept the secret between us, and have not yet given over our search for Jorlette, but I greatly fear that the £2,000 will never fall into our hands. The advantages to be gained by a judicious and systematic rotation of crops are apparently ignored by a good many Connecticut farmers. One of these obvious advantages depends upon the fact that different crops draw from the soil different elements of fertility. If a crop that depends largely upon one fertilizing element in the soil for its sustenance while growing is planted upon the same ground year after year, that particular element must of necessity become exhausted, and the crop must deteriorate. If another crop of a different character, and one depending principally upon another kind of plant food is substituted, the second crop may thrive when the first might fail. Another objection to the continuous planting of a particular crop on the same ground, is the encouragement thus afforded for the inordinate increase of injurious insects partial to that crop. Changing to a crop that they do not fancy deprives them of their chosen food, and the insects perish. There is no inflexible rule regarding the length of rotations. A three years' course is quite popular, a four years' course is not unusual, and there is no valid reason why a five years' course should not be adopted and followed by farmers who favor it. If a farmer has a predilection for any particular crop and finds it especially profitable, he may wisely replant that crop on the same ground as often as every third year. TJTKF. A DROWNING MAN.—" Five years ago a disease the doctors called dyspepsia took such hold of me that I could scarcely go," writes Geo S Marsh, well-known attorney at Nocona, Tex. " I took quantities of pepsin and other medicines# but nothing helped me. As a drowning man grabs at a straw I grabbed at Kodol. I felt an improvement at once and after a few bottles am sound and well." Kodol is the only preparation which exactly reproduces the natural digestive juices and consequently is the only one which digests any good food and cures any form of stomach trouble. Geo R Steele. This' signature is on every box of the genuine Laxative Bromo-Quifrine Tablets the remedy that ««*«• m voM tn vne ftuy Tbe Eyes of a Every bee has two kinds of eyes— the two large compound ones, looking like hemispheres on either side, and the three simple ones which crown the top of his head. Each compound eye is composed of 3,500 facets—that is to say, an object is reflected 3,500 times on its surface. Every one of these facets is the base of an inverted hexagonal pyramid, whose apex is fitted to the head. Each pyramid may be termed an eye, for each has its own iris and optic nerve. How these insects manage this marvelous number of eyes is not yet known. They are immovable, but mobility is unnecessary because of the range of vision afforded by the position and the number of facets. They have no lids, but are protected from dust and injury by rows of hairs growing along the lines at the junctions of the facets. The simple eyes are supposed to have been given the bee to enable it to see above its head when intent upon gathering hon«y from the cups of flowers. Probably this may be one reason, but it is likely there are other uses for them not yet ascertained.— Pearson's Weekly. Tbe Wearing of Amulets. Who wore the first amulet it would be impossible to say, but the adoption of a talisman to ward off evil is of very ancient origin. Phylacteries, the Greek word for amulets, were worn by the Israelites, to which allusion is made in the Scriptures. These phylacteries were narrow strips of parchment on which were written passages from the Old Testament. A strip was placed in a small leather box and bound to the left elbow by a narrow strap. There was a smaller phylactery for the forehead, the box for which was about an inch square. The word amulet is of Arabic origin and implies a thing suspended. Amulets were of various kinds. The moonstone, found in the desert of Arabia, was worn as a talisman against enchantment by the women, who suspended it around the neck. It was a white, transparent stone, the time for searching for it being midnight. Various Styles of Hairdressiiig. The various styles of hairdressing under Louis XVI. were known as the cascade of St. Cloud, the windmill, the sheep and lambs, the hen and chickens, the dog and hare, the peal of bells, the milkmaid, the bob wig, the bother, the kerchief, the oriental, the Circassian, Minerva's helmet, the crescent, the enigma, the desire to please, the turned up calash, the treasurer of the age, the frivolous bather, the rat, the drunken monkey and the lover's snare, the last named consisting of a mass of curls covered with powder, particles of which, deposited on the coat or shoulders of a gentleman, indicated the previous whereabouts of the lady's head. A Pleasant Prospect. A young man named Mooney enlisted in the army. After he had been in India for about five months he received a pathetic letter from his parents which said that if he did not send them some money they would be forced to go to the workhouse. The young man sat down and answered the letter as follows: "Dear Father and Mother—Try to keep out of the workhouse for six years and seven months until I come home, and then the three of us will go in together."—London Tit-Bits. Effect of the San on Monuments. The perpendicularity of a monument is visibly affected by the rays of the sun. On every sunny day a tall monument has a regular swing leading away from the sun. This phenomenon is due to the greater expansion of the side on which the rays of the sun fall. A pendulum placed inside, say, Nelson's column, in Trafalgar square, would be found to describe on every clear day an ellipse of nearly half an inch in diameter.— English Mechanic. The Giant's Organ. One of the most interesting features of the Giant's causeway is "the giant's organ." This huge "instrument" consists of a. group of pillars of various lengths set apart on the side of the main cliff. The larger columns being in the center and the smaller ones tapering off on either side after the fashion of organ pipes admirably sustain the idea which the name "giant's organ" conveys.
