Her lust Chi luge. said mrs. Kafferly a this is the last time Perlina Milf in the very last time. In be spent enough upon you since your Raa died and i took charge of you to marry six girls who had their senses about them. I be dressed you like a Christmas doll and in be let you go into company and in be sent you to the most fashionable p aces to Board in summer and Here you Are four and Twenty and not so much As engaged. Its perfectly disgusting. Perlina and what i have to say is if you done to Settle your affairs this summer 111 give you no More Chance t expect to die in the poor House As it is. Why. 1 was married at it. And your a at 1ft, and your aunt Delight about the plainest Little Critter i Ever saw was t but just Iff. What s the use of advantages and you have looks. Perlinac if you Don t make use of it a. A a in a sure i done to know what you expect me to do. 1 can to very Well propose to any said Perlina ready to cry. A i do everything i can and they make love to me. And they say All sorts of things. If they done to pop the question How can i make them there now. I suppose you waited until Uncle Kafferly asked you to have him before you said you a your Uncle Kafferly would have committed suicide if i had refused him Quot said aunt Kafferly. A you May not believe it now. But 1 was a Beauty to my youth. As for w hat you can do. You ought to know but what 1 say is this come Home engaged or i la Stop All this useless extravagance. 1 have crammed your trunk to the tune of Van. And you Are going to Saratoga with the kerosene new Odys and if you can to do it cow. Ill give it up As a bad with which speech she inflicted on her nieces Cheek that matter of course Peck which female friends choose to consider a kiss and bade her goodbye. And despite her new wardrobe her big Saratoga trunk the prospective summer Gayety and the Chaperon age of mrs. Kerosene pc body poor Perlina cried a Good Deal in the hired Carriage which conveyed her to the boat. What was she to do to marry might have been easy but to marry Money and that was what she was expected to do was a harder task. Aunt Kafferly was a Good business woman and would not be Likely to spend any More Money on an unsaleable article and Perlina shivered at the Prospect before her. If this Summers Campaign should prove a failure. On the whole she looked so ill when she arrived at Saratoga that her Mirror told her that her Best plan would be to retire Early and take As much beamy sleep As possible in View of any eligible gentleman who might put in an appearance next Day. Fresh As a Rose and dressed in her most becoming morning dress. Perlina took her seat at the break fast table next morning and nestled close to mrs. Kerosene new body in the most bewitching manner. That lady an ample Matron with a loud voice greeted her affectionately and at once introduced her to two gentlemen who were her neighbors. Quot or. Kolt. Miss Misikin miss Milkin or. Downhill. All old friends of mine. Charmed to make you know each other a and then devoted herself to breakfast and left those who preferred it to waste time on conversation. And so miss Milkin. Having the Field to herself made eyes at both her new acquaintances. And shrewdly noted amid her infantile Giggle is and dimpling that both were smitten. They were of the age or rather of the Ages at which the heart is most susceptible of cupid s arrows. Edmund Kolt was a youth of if and Hiram downhill was at least g5. Never before had Young or. Kolt had such bewitching attention offered him. And As for old or. Downhill his memory brought Back some Dove like glances such As those Misa Milkin showered upon him from the Long vanished years of his youth but not Many. To Cut a Long Story Short. Miss Mil Kin having discovered that or. Kolt was very Rich and an orphan and that or. Downhill was a very wealthy Bachelor. At once set her Cap for both Gen theme a resolving to accept the one who proposed first. She loved neither. A girl of her views who had made a Rush into the matrimonial Market with but one stipulation that the Man she married should have Money was scarcely Likely to have a heart. A husband meant to her easy circumstances Freedom from her aunt Gay Ferlys a incessant a Liberty to flirt As much As she chose with were often very interesting and Freedom from the dread of being an old maid. Mrs. New body who was. On the whole a Good natured woman willing to see her friends Well settled furthered the Little affair to the Best of her ability. There were walks rides. A drives chatting in copy Corners and at last a proposal. It came from or. Kolt. Youth is Hasty. Age is slow. Or. Downhill was just making up his mind to do it when or. Kolt did it. I and miss Milkin said Quot yes Quot and would a have fallen into his arms hut that they were in full sight of an old lady who had just levelled her opera Glass full at them from a window. Quot yes a Perlina had answered and Young Kolt blushed Rosy red and a this soul a like that of Gloriana. In the wild Irish girl presumably a went on a Jig to heaven Quot for the hand was playing delightful dances for their edification and afterwards when they had had supper Perlina locked herself in j her room and wrote to her aunt Kafferly. Her letter ended thus a so you see in a engaged and you can to twit me any longer. I done to suppose poor Kolt will Ever set the River on fire but he a a Good natured fellow and i can just twist him around my Finger. And remember you Are bound to give me a handsome wedding dress and have always promised me poor j Mill pearls the Day i was married. Your affectionate Niece mrs. Kafferly signified her approval by return of Post and per Llna a mind was at rest. It did not trouble her much that in less than a w Eek a Tele a Gram summoned Kolt to the City. She could use the fast fading Days of Freedom better without an engaged Lover at her Side and she certainly made the most of them. She plunged into flirtation in a Way that frightened even mrs. Kerosene new body and was happier than she had Ever been since her search for a husband commenced. As for poor or. Downhill she quite snubbed him now that she had no vie we concerning him. Meanwhile the absent Kolt wrote love letters and she answered them. Quot never shall i forget my feelings when you went out to ride with old downhill he said in one of these. Quot i really thought for a while that you j liked and to this she replied a How could you fancy that i should a like a superannuated old creature like that i Only took a Little notice of him j out of poor Perlina life was certainly very much Check ered. One morning mrs. New body opened a new York paper and having glanced Down the column of marriages and deaths gave a faint shriek and looked at Perlina in a terrified Way. Perlina snatched the paper and saw this record a suddenly on the a the Edmund Edmund Koltz there was no doubt of it. Mrs. New body looked at Perlina expecting to see her faint. To her Surprise the Young lady though very serious was quite Calm. A poor fellow Quot she said a a in a very sorry. Do be quiet dear mrs. New body done to lets have a scene. No one knows we were engaged and you need not Tell Mem. I done to want my season then she arose and went to her room cried a Little bathed her face used some Pearl pow Der on her nose and went downstairs to Charm or. Downhill by beaming upon him and asking him How he could be so dreadful and neglect her so. In a word now that the old love was gone she a took up with the new Quot and in a week or. Downhill had proposed and was accepted. And the astonished mrs. Kafferly received an account of the situation which greatly surprised her. Old or downhill was rather More obstinate than even or. Kolt had been. He asserted his rights and insisted upon the open wearing of the engagement ring. There was no More flirtation for miss Milkin and Evey one knew had occurred. She wore a Diamond ring of value on her Finger and was guarded by her old Beau from morning until night. He even wrote her several notes lie tween their parting at Midnight and meeting at nine in the morning and in one of them he referred to her flirtation with Young Kolt. Miss Milkin was one of those unlucky victims to love of letter writing who can never resist putting things Down in Black and White. She wrote this sentence in her reply a you naughty naughty Goose How could i care for a Stripling like that poor follow he was very Nice but Only a boy you and when she had written it she thought How much jollies it was to run about with him than to sit in a Corner with old or. Downhill. Who was always afraid of catching cold and who would not let her dance because he could not. Still he was Rich and she was engaged at last after All. One evening she walked the Piazza with her betrothed leaning on his Arm in the most confiding manner. The evening train was in and people were waiting for the stages to bring the new Comers As they rattled up to the door some one was seen waving a w Hite handkerchief. A Young Man with very red Cheeks and then some one called not Why it s Kolt alive and for there had Lieen much lamentation Over the poor fellow. As he sprang out of the crowded vehicle they rushed toward him to shake hands and Tell him that he had been supposed dead. Quot death in the papaw. You know old Fellah a said one exquisite. Quot weary very Cyous How death could be in the papaw when you Wasny to dead you Quot it was poor Grandfather. I was named after him you know. I never thought what people would think. In Quot then he turned Pale and hurried into the House fearing that the awful news bad killed his poor Perlina. Miss Milkin was in the parlor. She had fled on his approach and was really quite faint and or. Downhill had gone for a Glass of water. Every one else was out of doors and the Young fellow rushed toward her. My Dearest love Quot he whispered my Darling you did not think i was dead a Quot yes in did a gasped Perlina. He Bent Over her and caught her hands and pressed them to his lips. A ooh i die and leave you Quot he said. A a in a but Here a hand came Down upon his shoulder and a thin voice breathed in his ear Quot Young Man i am very glad to see you restored As it were from the grave but i can to allow such liberties with the lady who is going to marry or. Downhill bad returned with the Glass of water. Perlina not knowing what to do had Refuge in tears and silence. The gentlemen grew furious and finally walked away with each oth or with Quot pistols for two and Coffee for four in their faces. But this was eighteen Hundred and ninety seven and much is thought of documentary evidence. In a retired so kit where they could not be overheard the hapless Perlina letters were produced. Poor Little Kolt read with the bitter agony of youth the woman a denial of Ner love for and engagement with him written a week after his supposed death and old Townhill gave a groan Over another buried Hope As he read the lines in which he was set Down As a superannuated creature Only taken notice of out of pity. After this the two gentlemen Shook hands. They Nad no quarrel with each other now. Neither of them wanted of marry Perlina Milkin. She received two Little notes that evening telling her so. That was last summer. This year Perlina will not go to Saratoga at All and mrs. Kafferly having dismissed her chambermaid it is a matter of wonder to the neighbors who the person with a Green Barege veil on her head who nibs the windows can to. It is barely possible that this is Perlina. Mrs. Kafferly is a woman of her word and she considers her Niece s chances of Matrimony quite new York news. Mother love won. Nearly ten years securing a Don for her to climb a tree and no matter whether hitched up or not up the tree it goes buggy and All. P4. A few Days after coming Here the horse was hired by John Peterson and j John heeler for a drive into the country. The Drivers were passing through a Large Wood when the horse suddenly took a notion to climb a tree and up it went with the buggy and men. The latter fell out. But the horse went on up into the tree carrying the buggy with it. For three hours the boys tried to coax it Down but it staid up until its desire was satisfied. The buggy was la Adly broken and the boys came Hack with the horse but left the fragments of the vehicle behind them. Or. Berry will sell the horse to a circus. Color in animals. So Trace of death Hal been commuted to life imprison me at he c lev Claud at the last tomcat a pardoned by Mckinley. The signature of president Mckinley to the Pardon of Clyde Mattox was the sequel of a pathetic Story of heroism Devotion and self sacrifice unparalleled save in the Field of fiction. For eight years a woman has worked unremittingly to save an Only son from an ignominious death on the Gallows or a life condemned to be passed within the Walls of a state prison. From the first trial in the United states court for Kansas to the supreme court of that _ in noted states and finally to the High-1 est Power in the land she has gone have Peculiar shells and feed on Birds with her prayers and her tears for Mer cd la sects.

One morning he spilled his cup of milk on the table cloth and anticipating a reproof he dropped his head instantly and murmured Quot my Tup run Neth Goon in the Union army and her Only son Clyde then a High spirited handsome boy of 1ft.

It is most abundant about new but futile struggle made to save her River Inlet where the slight shake of boy removed and went bravely to a tree about Sunset will bring a showed work on the almost hopeless task of of them to the ground. The breakage securing a Pardon from president 0f a Shin seems to be of Little trouble to the Snail he repairs the damage Cleveland. Being a woman of refinement with a Beautiful face framed in Atiq moves citizen premature White hair she aroused sympathy for her great sorrow from All. She secured petitions from the leading people of Oklahoma and letters and recommendations from the judges and attorneys who had been instrumental in the conviction of her unfortunate son. And provided with Money raised by the wives of the state officials of Kansas she came to Washington to see president Cleveland. Upon her arrival Here she Learned that the president was at Buzzard s Bay and thither she went with or great sorrow. She secured an Audi i ence with or. Cleveland and told him with tears the pitiful Story of her i i Sion. She pleaded in extenuation h or son s extreme youth when the killing occurred and the Peculiar condition of his surroundings. The president listened attentively and gave her Assurance that the Case should receive his earliest consideration and she was i forced to return West in doubt As to the result of her Mission. Making rata work there Are 1-to men in North St. I onis who defy anyone to dispute the fact that Tom Maguire is a Genius. Or. Maguire is Yard Foreman at the Laclede Gas company a Plant at 2nd and Molanphy streets. His enthusiastic proclaimers of his Genius Are his fellow workers in the big Yard. A sewer pipe leading from one of the buildings to the River Bauk. H a feet away became clogged. The pipe is sixteen feet below the surface it was not known just where the obstruction was so arrangements were made to open the Trench. Then Maguire brought into play what proved to be the Trump card�?viz., rats. He had been thinking about the Pran for several Days. One night by the Aid of generous hunks of fresh cheese he managed to entrap two big Gray rodents and these he determined to put into the sewer. They were taken to. ,.the Mouth at the River Bank and re . an no won cd me paid the top a a Long a a a a Hen Lowd securely behind them. Leaving the Ani from Buzzards Bay. The Day fixed for the execution Drew near and still no j sign that her plea for mercy would be heeded. The Gallows was erected and All the dreadful preparations completed for the awful event that would forever blast her life. Twelve hours before the time set for the execution when All j Hope had been abandoned a message came from Buzzard s Bay commuting the sentence to life imprisonment Mattox was removed to the Penitentiary at i Leavenworth and began his career As a life convict. Then his de voted Mother followed him and took up her residence within the Shadow of the great building which held her Only child. How she lived is Best told in the j deep lines on her once Beautiful but now pinched and careworn face and in the faded mourning she St Iii wore for the husband who slept in a Southern grave. The Story of her Devotion and self sacrifice interested the ministers and Christian women of Leavenworth and a second Effort was made for the Pardon of Clyde Mattox. When the new administration came into Power mrs. Hatch armed with additional letters came to Washington. Through the influence of mrs. J. J. Frey wife of the general manager of the Santa be railway she secured a pass to Chicago her friends bought her a ticket the remainder of the distance. She was without Money and entered the Home of one of her attorneys where she was kindly so offed. She secured the services of one of the eminent Law firms of Washington and the Legal pro Cen for securing a presidential Pardon was put in motion. Through Faith courage and perseverance under Adverse circumstance this Noble woman and Loving Mother triumphed at last. After four months of weary waiting. Mrs. Hatch s attorneys placed in her hands a full and unconditional Pardon for her son. Three hours later the limited express As it sped Westward through the darkness.

That was to go straight ahead. And they did. Several More rats were caught each succeeding Day and turned into the sewer until a dozen Fine specimens wore gnawing away in the pipe. The morning after the last detachment joined the main rodent army water commenced to trickle from the pipe. Iron rods and steam were applied. In ten minutes the sewer was . Louis Poat dispatch. Eight Days of hit witness stand. Quot the longest time i Ever saw one witness on the stand Quot is id a Man from Hardinsburg. Ky., Quot was during the life of judge Kincheloe who was regarded As one of the Ablest members of the Breckinridge bar. He was honoured by Bis people to the High office to which he aspired and he was always respected in the highest As a Man of learning and a Ripe scholar. During his Active practice land titles were much unsettled in our country and some of the most important suits came up Over titles. In the Case of Askina is. Askins in which judge Kincheloe and the late George w. Williams of Owensboro were the counsel the taking of testimony consumed two months. It was then that or. Askins was on the stand continuously for Over eight Days and when the judge had questioned him from every conceivable Point of View he said a Well or. As Kins you Are excused but i m afraid we be pumper you so dry you wont have anything to Tell your wife and family when you get the witness retired badly confused but evidently glad to get off the Louisville Post. There Are More Heaters in proportion to it population in Italy than elsewhere in the world this horse climbs Trees. Dan Berry the Well known horse owner of Chicago has made a great hit in purchasing an Ordinary looking nag in the Southern part of the state. It appears that the owner was glad to get rid of it and thought he was doing a smart thing in working it off on Dan. But to latter is going to turn the Deal to his own account for the animal is a wonder. It is nothing More or less than a climbing horse. It was foaled in the. Woods of an us settled part of Brown county and for six months afterwards it never saw a human being. During that period it Learned to climb Trees with the agility of a Squirrel and when it was first discovered it Lay sleeping in the branches of an Oak. The horse was taken Home and broken to drive and now in every other respect it is a Well behaved animal except when it takes a the scent of Flowers. As a Rule the scent of Flowers does not exist in them As in a store or gland but rather As a breath an exhalation. While the Flower lives it breathes out its sweetness hut when it Dies the fragrance usually ceases to exist. The method of stealing from the Flower its fragrance while it is still living is no new thing and it is not known that when it was discovered that butter animal fat. Or Oil would absorb the odor Given off by living Flowers placed near them and would themselves become fragrant so sobs her pallbearers. Sarah Poorman died in Mancie ind.

Everybody knows How easily the color of a yellow Canary May lie altered to an Orange red by mixing Cayenne Pepper with its food though it is True that the color change May be produced Only in very Young Birds whose feathers Are not completely matured. It is also a matter of Experiment that All varieties of canaries Are not equally susceptible to the influence of the Pepper and it is a very curious fact that if the pigment that cause the red color of the Pepper be mixed with the food of the Birds without the other constituents yellow coloured canaries Are not in the slightest degree affected by it while Brown feathers of yellow Birds become distinctly lighter in Hue. Here is another Inte rest ing Experiment the Large Tortoise Shell butter Fly normally feeds upon the leaves of the Elm while the Small Tortoise Shell is addicted to Nettles but when some images of the Large Tortoise Shell were bred from caterpillars that had been found upon Nettles they shewed a wonderful similarity to the smaller species though the color was nearer to that of the larger. Quite in the same line is the observation that the Thorn Moth exhibits variations in color according As the larva is fed upon Oak Hawthorn Lime or Lilac. Many other experiments have shown a similar effect of food in modifying or completely changing the color of animals. Among changes of color that Are most perplexing if one would refer their cause to Utility Only is that of the Gull which is Blue and White and is therefore generally allowed to be of protective value. But for the first three years of their lives several common species of Gull have a Brownish speckled plumage which is totally unclean and transparent wit hotel the use of any Metal cleaner by gently rib Bing under them with a Towel.

It has been less than 100 years Sines civilized humanity used Many Odd device for the purpose of obtaining fire. In this country then claiming to be a enlightened a the tinder Box with steel Flint was the apparatus most generally used according to the san Francisco chronicle. However if there was no tinder Box in the House the old Flint lock Musket with a few grains of powder in the pan together with a few shreds of paper or greased rags were considered a household necessity. Rubbing Sticks together until they were fired by friction was the method used by the Savages of that time in nearly All the lands of the Globe. There was one single exception however to All of the above As Weil As any of the More common method a of Quot striking Light Quot and that method was Pray Tiger by a rude tribe of Semi Savages inhabiting Eastern Tibet curious As it May seem these rude Savages obtained Are by strictly scientific principles which involved a wonderful knowledge of compressed air. The apparatus used consisted of a wooden Cylinder two and one half inches Long by three quarters of an Inch in diameter which closed at one end. Into this Cylinder which tapered off at one end until it was not larger than a common Lead Pencil was fitted an air tight Piston which bad a Large Flat Knob at the top the other end of the Piston was slightly hollowed out the indentation being intended for the reception of a Small piece of tinder or when this apparatus was in use. It was held in one or. A a hand the Piston bring inserted with like that of the older Birds on which j the other and pushed about half Way fact or. Beddard remarks Quot if on Down. A very Sharp blow waa then Given with the Palm on the Piston. At the same instant the fingers were closed around the Knob and Tae Piston instantly withdrawn. If everything had worked to perfection the scientific Savage was usually rewarded by finding that the tinder had been lighted and a tire assured. Sir William Gill an English scientist who investigated this queer Mode of striking a Light says that a it requires skill to use the fire prod tiring apparatus As Well As science to invent Olor be advantageous the other must be the reverse Ami three years is either a considerable period or it is not Long another perplexing part of the subject is the color of deep sea animals. It is an established fact that Marine animals can and do live at the enormous depth of More than five Miles below the surface of the water. It is also certain that the sunlight Doe not penetrate to that depth so that the animals that exist there exist in More than Midnight darkness. Yet the fact is that Brilliant coloration Are generally found in them. Of what use can it be it is True indeed that there May be phosphorescent Light emitted by the animals themselves and of this there Are Many evidences but though the deep sea fish May lie guided to its prey by a series of natural Quot Bull s Eye Coffee As a Medicine.

While the wound is Healing the lids Are drawn outward every Day and when it is quite curved the Eye is still submitted to the drawing process every Day for a Long time with the eventual result that it becomes Long and narrow. And satisfies the taste of the unspeakable the Story about mme.
