A Belgian Rat 8tory.
A particularly good rat story 1b told
In a Belgian paper. A gardener had
planted 2G0 tulip bulbs. Tlio follow
ing day, when about to completo the
number, tlio man noticed that tho
bulbs had disappeared mysteriously.
Ho was (old that perhnps ratB had
been at work, and looked for their
hole. This he found, and dug down
Into tho earth until a subterranean
chambor was disclosed, where tho
whole of the 250 bulbs wcro hidden,
packed neatly in rows, ono above the
other. There was a bundle or hay nnd
dead leaves also, showing that tho rats
had made most olaborato preparations
for tho winter season.
Sam Houston as an Indian.
Tho statute of General Sam Houston
of Texas, to bo placed In tho capltol
nt "Washington, of which Miss Eliza
beth Ney Is the sculptor, Is to bo a
duplicate of tho statue which has just
been finished and placed in tho capi
tal at Austin. This statuo represents
Houston ns an Indian at a time when
ho waB living with tho Cherokee tribe
nfter his selMmnlihrncnt from Tennos
see. Judgo John 11. Reagan, who
knew Houston Intimately, is angry
over tho Indian Btatue and in a letter
protests against Its duplicate being
placed in the national capitol.

Now Berlin, 111., March 16th. Mr.
Frank Newton of this place speaks
very earnestly nnd emphatically when
asked by any of his many friends tho
reason for tho very noticcablo Im
provement In his health.
For a long time over two years ho
has been suffering a great deal with
pains in his back and an oil-over feel
lng of illness and weakness. His ap
petlto failed him nnd he grew gradu
ally weaker and weaker till ho was
very much run down. t
A friend recommended Dodd's Kid
ney Pills nnd Mr. Newton began to
take two at a dose, three times a day.
In a very short time he noticed an im
provement; tho pains left his back
nnd ho could cat better. Ho kept on
Improving and now ho says:
"Yes, Indeed 1 I am a different man
nnd Dodd's Kidney Pills did It all. I
cannot tell you how much better I feel.
I am a new man and Dodd's Kidney
Pills deserve all the credit."
Tho unexpected never happcnB.

Queen Victoria and tho Telephone.
Sir William Preece, who was for
nearly thirty yearn in tho employment
of tho postofllec, la fond of relating an
anecdote, which, while it rather tells
against him, does his vesatllity and
readiness full justico. It was at tho
time when a telephono had been Bet
up between Osborno and London, and
In ordqr to glvo Queen Victoria an
exhibition of its possibilities certain
tests wore carried out. Ono of them
was tho playing of a band in London
so that her majesty might hear tho
music at tho other end of tho wire.
By somo mlpchanco the band wns not
thero when Sir William waB informed
that tho queen waB waiting to hear
its performance. Tero wbb only ono
thing to bo done, nnd Sir Willlnm,
knowing tho possibilities of tho tele
phone, hummed nn air Into tho receiv
er. Then ho inquired whether her ma
jesty had recognized tho tune. "Yes,"
was tho reply. "It wns tho national
anthem, and very badly played."
"Music Hath Charms."
An electrical engineer employed by
Mr. Edison was lntoly engaged upon
somo experimental work upon har
monic telegraphy. Ho happened to
notice that when tho note given out
by the Instrument reached a certain
pitch all the mosquitoes In tho neigh

paratus. Tho workman produced a
quantity of flypaper, with which he
covered tho machine, and so succeed
ed in capturing thhotisands of tho nox

musical attraction seems to bo that
tho note produced by tho machine was
exactly similar to that caused by tho
rapid vibration of tho winga of tho
mosquito when ilylng. Sir Hiram
Maxim has since made experiments of
a similar kind, nnd found that a tuning-fork

THE LION'S WHELP
A Story of Cromwell's Time.

Nevillo had asked to bo called early,
an before daybreak ho camo into tho
parlor ready for his Journey. Somo
broiled beef, n mnnchet of white bread
nnd n blnck Jar of spiced ale, Btlrred
with a rosemary branch, was waiting
for him; and Mrs. S waff ham and Jano
sat at his sido whilo ho cat and
Soon Neville's horso came clottcr
lng to tho door. Ho clasped Jane's
hand ns it hung by her side, nnd they
walked thus to tho threshold. Snow
was falling; tho stops wero white
with It, nnd tho east wind blew it
gently in their faces, MrB. Swaffham
laughed and drew her Bhawl over her
head, and Neville laughed also, and
with a cheerful word, leaped to his
saddle, his dark flguro growing more
nnd more phnntom-jlko through tho
dim dawn and tho white veil of tho
snow. At the gate he wheeled his
horse, and, saluting them, vanished
into tho gray obscurity, which made
all things as if they were not.
"Ho did not say much of tho Crom
wells. I'll warrant they will forget
you In their rising state."
"Far away from it. Mary nnd Fran
ces sent me many good words, and
they are very persuasive with me to
como to London nnd share their
"You cannot go Just yet, Jane. Your
father is opposed to it, until Gen.
Cromwell returns there. Then, if it
so please God we Bhall all go at least
for a season."
Then the mother nnd daughter sep
erated, nnd Jano went to her friend's
room. Sho wnB languidly brushing
out her long black hair, nnd Jnno
tried to kiss a smile into her melan
choly face. And as she lifted her
head, she had a momentary glance at
n beautiful miniature lying upon tho
dressing tnble. Tho face was that of
a youth with flowing locks and a fall
ing collar of lace. In that samo mo
ment, Matilda moved her ribbons and
kerchief in a hurried way, contriving
in so doing to cover the picture.
"Oh, Jane, Jane! In truth, I am a
wretched girl, this morning. I have
been dreaming of calamities and my
speech Is too small for my heart.
Very soon this lucky Cromwell fam
ily will coax you to London to see all
their glory, and 1 shall be left in tie
Wick with no better company than a
clock; for my father speaks to mo
about once an hour, and tho Chaplain
not at all, unless to reprove me."
"But you shall como to London
"Do you think so 111 of me ns to be
llevo I would leave my father In tho
loneliness of de Wick?" And sho stood
up nnd kissed her friend, and in a
littlo while they went downstairs to
gether, and Matilda had some boiled
milk and bread nnd a slice of venison.
Then sho asked Mrs. Swaffham to let
her havo a coach to go home in.
Mrs. Swaffham kissed her for an
swer, and they sent her away with
such confidence of good-will nnd com
ing happiness that the girl almost be
lieved days might bo hers In the fu
ture ns full of Joy as days In the past
After this visit it was cold winter
weather, and Cluny Neville came no
more until the pale windy spring was
over the land. And this visit was so
short that Mrs. Swaffham, who had
gone to Ely, did not see him at all.
For he merely rested while a fresh
horse was prepared for him, eating a
littlo bread and meat almost from
Jane's hand as ho waited. Yet in that
half hour's stress and hurry, lovo over
leaped a space that had not been taken
without it; for as ho stood with ono
hand on his saddle, ready to leap into
It, Jane trembling and pale at his side,
ho saw unshed tears In her eyes and
felt the unspoken love on her lips, and
as he clasped her hand his heart
sprang to his tongue, and he said with
a passionate tenderness:
"Farewell, Jane! Darling Jane!"
then, afraid of his own iemerlty, he
wns away ore he could see the wonder
and Joy called Into her face by the
Emeet familiar words.
When he came again, It wss harvest
time; tho reapers wero in tho wheat
fields, and as he neared Swaff.'iem he
saw Jane standing among, the bound
sheaves, serving the men and women
with meat and drink. Ho tied Ills
horse at tho gate nnd went to her sido,
nnd oh, how fair and sweet ho found
hort Never had sho looked, never
had any woman looked in his eyes so
enthralling. Tho charm of tho quiet
moon was over all; thero was no
noise, Indeed rather a pastoral molan
choly with a gentle ripple of talk
threading it about plowing and sowing
and rural affairs.
In a short tlmo tho men and women
scattered to their work, and Cluny,
turning hlB bright face to Jane's, took
both her hands in his and" said with
"Dear Jane! Darling Jano! Oh,
how I love you!"
The words came without intent
But the heart Is a ready scholar when
love teaches, and as they slowly
passed through the fields of yellow
fullness, finding their happy way
among tho standing sheaves, Jane
heard nnd understood that heavenly
tale which Cluny knew so well how to
Not until they reached Swaffham did
they remember that they two were not
the whole round world. But words of
care and wonder and eager inquiry
abawt war, and rumor of war, soon
broke the heavenly franco of feeling
in which they had found an hour of
So tho bjlssful truce was over, nnd
Jano and , Cluny were part of the
weary, warring, working world again.
Cluny know nothing which could allay
fear. He had Just come from London.
"And what of the General's family?"
asked Mrs. Swaffham; "are they not
"They aro concerned and anxious,
but not fearful. Indeed, the old Lady
Cromwell astonished me beyond words.
She smiled at the panic In the city,
and said 'It is the beginning of tri
umph. I have Been, I havo heard.
Rest on my assurance, and until tri
umph comes, retire to Hfm who is a
sure hiding place.' And the light of
her aged face was wonderful. It Is
the substance of the thing we hope

for. the evidence of what wo shall all
yet see," ho cried In a tone of ex
altation. "And now give me a strong,
fresh horse; I will ride all night!"
Then ho turned to Jane. "Darling
Jane! My Jane!" nnd kissing her, he
said boldly to Mrs. Swaffham, "I ask
your favor, madame. Jane has this
hour promised to bo my wife."
"Jano has then been very forward,"
answered Mrs. Swaffham with annoy
ance. "I am grieved. And Jane's
father has not been spoken to, and ho
is first of all. I can say neither yea
nor nay in the matter."
"But you will surely speak for us.
Give mo n kind word, madame, ere I
go." And she could not resist tho
youth's beauty and sweet nature, nor
yet the thought in her henrt that It
might perhaps be his last request. She
drew down his face to hers and kissed
and blessed him, saying, as Saul said
to David, "Go, and tho Lord be with
Then he leaped Into the saddle, and
the horse caught his Impatience and
shared his martial passion, and with
a loud neigh went flying over the land.
Silently the two women watched tho
dark figure grow more and more in
distinct in tho soft, mysterious moon
shine, until at length it was a mere
shadow that blended with tho indis
tinctness of the horizon.
"Thank you, dear mother," said Jane
softly, and tho mother answered,
"When Neville has done his duty, he
will come for you. . He can no more
bear to live without you than with
out his eyes. I seo that."
This long winter had been ono of
great suffering to Gen. Cromwell.
After making himself master of the
wholo country south of Forth nnd
Clyde, ho had a severe illness, and
lay often at the point of death. He
took tho field In June, throwing tho
main part of his army into Fife, In
order to cut off tho enemy's victual.
This move forced the hand of Charles
Stuart. His army was in mutiny for
want of provisions, the North country
was already drained, be durst not risk
a bnttle but the road Into England
Cromwell hlmBeir had gono north
ward to Perth, and on tho second of
August he took possession of thnt
city, but while entered it waB told
that Charlea Stuart, with fourteen
thousand men, hod -suddenly left
Stirling and was marching towards
England. Chnrles had taken the west
ern road by Carlisle, and it was
thought ho would moko for London.
He went nt a flying speed past York,
Nottingham, Coventry, until ho reached
tho borders of Shropshire. At Shrews
bury ho found tho gates shut against
him and his men were so disheartened
that tho king turned westward to
Worcester, a city reported to be loyal,
whoro ho was received with every
show of honor and affection.
Meanwhile Cromwell was following
Charles with a Btendy swiftness that
had something fateful in it. This was
to bo tho last battle of tho civil war,
and Cromwell knew it There wns In
his soul, even at Perth, tho assurance
of victory, and as he pasBed through
tho towns and villages of England,
men would nol be restrained. They
throw down tho sickle and tho spade
in the field, tho hammer In the forge,
the plane at tho bench, and catchlnc
hold of the stirrups of the riders, ran
with them to the halting place. So,
with his ten thousand troops aug
mented to thirty thousand, ho reached
Warwick, and makinrr his henriminr-
ters at tho pretty village of Keynton
near by, he gave his men time to
draw breath aud called a council of
Cromwell sat at the upper end of a
long table. A rough map of tho coun
try around Worcester lay before him,
and Harrison, Lambert, Israel Swaff
ham and Lord Evesham were his com
panions. Thero wero two tallow can
dles on the table, and their light
Bhone on the face of Cromwell. At
that moment it waB full of melan
choly, but he saw In an Instant the
entrance of Neville, and with an al
most Imperceptible movement com
manded his approach.
Neville laid tho letters of which ho
was tho bearer before Cromwell, and
his large hand Immediately covered
them. "Is all well?" he asked and
reading the answer in the youth's
face, added, "I thank God! What then
of tho city?"
"Its panic is beyond describing," nn
swered Neville. "Parliament is besldo
Itself. But London is manifestly with
tho Commonwealth, and every man in
it is looking to you and to the army
for protection. Some, indeed, I met
who had lost heart, and who thought
it better that Charles Stuart should
come back than thnt England should
become a graveyard fighting him."
"Such men are suckled slaves," said
Lambert. "I would hang them with
out word or warrant for it."
"Yea," said Cromwell, "for Freedom
Is dead in them. From here there aro
two courses open to us, a right ono
and a wrong one. What say you,
"I say it were well to turn our noses
to London, and to let the rogues know
we are coming."
"What Is your thought, Harrison?"
"Worcester is well defended," ho an
swered musingly. "It has Wales be
hind it. We cannot fight Charles
Stuart till we compass the city, and to
do that we must be on both sides of
"Fight him," said Lord Evesham,
"better now than later."
"Fight him! That, I tell you, is my
mind also," said Cromwolr strklng tho
table with his clinched hand. "Somo
may judge otherwise, but I think while
we hold Charles Stuart safe, London
is safe also. God has chosen this
battlefield for us, as He chose Dunbar.
But there must be no slackness. Tho
work Is to be thorough, and not to
do over again. Tho nation wishes It
so, I know it The plain truth is
we will march straight on Worcester;
we will cut off Charles Stuart from
all hope of London; wo wllP fight him
from both sides of the river, nnd
bring this matter of tho Stuarts to an

THE POPULATION OF CHINA.
Little Doubt It Contains One-Third
Some doubt has been thrown by re
cent travelers upon the correctness
of tho accepted notion that China Is
a land of teeming population. It has
been asserted that tho humau hives
along tho seaboard and the great riv
ers of China ought not to be taken as
a basis for estimates; that in those
parts of the empire which Me off the
main routes of traffic (the natural and
artificial water courses,) the popula
tion of China is comparatively thin.
A census recently taken by tho Peking
government for the purpose of assess
ing taxes to meet the indemnity pay
ments seems, however, to prove tho
accuracy of the older estimates. Tho
census shows that the eighteen prov
inces of China proper contain 407,
737,305 Inhabitants; that Manchuria
has 8,500,000, nnd Mongolia, Thibet
and Chinese Turkestan a little over
10,000,000. The total population of
the empire is 426,447,325, according
to this enumeration. The absolute
reliability of Asiatic statistics is ques
tioned; nevertheless, the agreement
of the results of the census with the
accepted estimates Is so close as to
Invite confidence. The statement that
the Chinese empire contains one-third
of the human race will hereufter bo
regarded more than ever as an ap

Chicago Man's Remarkable Light.
A Chicago Inventor, Mr. George Ma
grady, has discovered a process of
manufacturing a thlrty-slx candle pow
er light that will never go out. While
experimenting with photographic
chemicals four years ago Magrady's
attention was attracted by a glow In
a small globe. .The glow was caused
by a chemical which the inventor
keeps secret. Magrady enlarged tho
glow and perfected the light by plac
ing it in an air-tight glass. He says
thero is no reason why the light will
not remain brilliant forever, If It is not
broken. A company has been formed
to manufacture tho lights in numer
ous sizes. A pntent hood fits over tho
globe and covers it completely when
the light Is not needed.
WAS REFUSED LIFE INSURANCE.
Rejected on Account of "Coffee Heart."
Life lnsuranco companies havo fully
established the fact that the use of
coffee causes an organic derangement
or tho heart, shortening tho long beat
and Imperiling life. For this reason
habitual coffee drinkers are refused
life Insurance In many cases. A well
known merchant of White's Creek,
Tenn., proprietor of a largo store
there, says: "Three years ago I was
examined for life insurance and to my
surprise was rejected because my
heart action was at times out of placo
15 beats in 60.
"I consulted several good doctors
and was Invariably asked by them, 'Do
you drink ardent spirits? use tobacco?
or drink coffee?' To the first I an
swered 'Very little to tho second
'No,' to the last 'Yes,' and they would
all say 'Quit coffee.'
"I determined to do this. I had read
about Postum Cereul Coffee and bought '
and used it, and I liked it as well as
the best of real coffee, and as a re
sult of its use in place of coffee I find
myself without a skip in my heart
action nnd I can get Insurance on my
life cheaper by 25 per cent (notwith
standing the advance In age), than I
could when I first commenced using
Postum." Name furnished by Postum
