and being quite old she decided nut to go
out to Hervke nay move. It was a t,ud tluy
when I handed tho koyi of the place we

etranger. I vi-dted my father's grave;
then, with the fifty pounds and a few pri
vate paiiers, I utarted out to seek a place
for myself in the world."
"At Wan rlend I know what you did," I
said, with tendcrneH. "You taught ma
that a life worth living must be an active

was not worth the living unless I could

selfishness. "Lut where did you go after
you left there?"
"I visited the little school first, and then
went to the depot."
"Yei darling," I Mid, "I know all that.
I followed you aa far as 1 could."
"I found but little money iu my purse."
"No," I interrupted, "I know that you
paid the housekeeper's wages. I am In
debt to you for fifty pounds. How much
intercut are you going to charge?" I asked
"How do you know that I advanced my

no account of a settlement with yourself."
"I never paid myself though I might
have done so."
"Hut what made you pay Ingram?" I
"Uecause sho would not obey orders. I
told her to leave and she fiiid she would
aot stir one step unttl she wm paid. Sho
tauntingly told me there was not money
enough in the Waverland mansion to pay
her wages, I aked her how much it was
and she said fifty pounds. I went to my
room, took the money my father gave mo
and p;.ld her, saying: Now, leave Waver
land! She was astonished but Anally left.
1 was relieved. She had defied uiy orders
In everything, and wa ruling your mother
with a "high hand."
"You were a brave girl," I said. "But
where did you go from the depot?-'
"To Dublin. In my hurry to leave Wa
verland I forgot to take the money from
the funds I had in my possession, so
I only had enough In my purse to take me
there. When I left the train in that great
city I was bewildered for a time. As I was
walking uhnig the street ;i lit tie girl came
running up to nio and taking my hand
said, 'come see my mamma, she is so still.'
The child was a ragged, half starved little

on a twa maat oi leaves ana emw tay a
woman, dead 1 1 went Into a bc-UM near by,
and asked the woniau who cam to the
door If she knew anything about the dead.
She told me that the dead woman wan a
widow. She had tried to get work but
failed, and she had probably starved to
death. The child had a pinched aud
shrivelled look, but no doubt the mother
had denied herself to save the child. The
priest was sent for. I washed the poor
woman's face and combed her hair. When
the priest came he seemed surprised to see
a stranger there. He asked who I was that
I should take such an interest in this poor
woman's death. I told him I was a stran
ger la Publin but the child had led me to
her mother. 1 also told him 1 was without
money or friends, snd would like to get a
place somewhere as gnvurucs. He aked
me to go with him to his sister's house uu
til I could 11ml some other home. I found
bis sister a kiud, gentle woman of consid
erable culture aud good common sense.
Her whole aim and object in life was to be
of use to her brother, who was her hero.
"The; lived very plainly. MissO'Hone
said her brother would not allow himself
any luxuries wheu there were so many
that must suffer. Their food was of the
simplest kind, but 1 was made welcome to
share it with them. The little room that
Father O'Hone used for bis library was
emptied of its books and made into a sleep
ing room for me. HU books were piled on
a box in one corner of the living room.
Tills faithful woman never tired of telling
how her brother would go through rain
and mud in summer or winter if he could
be of service to some poor suffering creat
ure. Nothing could happen among hii
people but that he was cMlttl on to bear a
part of their burdens. Ho was their pas

D'Hotteshe tried earnestly to Had uie a
position. I had ftbmit deolrted to adver
tise, when one day, Ilishop Welch gave a
public address. Miss O'Hone and 1 went
to hear him. He told the eople that the
time for religious controversy hud passed.
Now they must unite nnd act in unison
and Charles Stewart I'arnell would lead
them to victory, it was at that publio
meeting while I was standing on the walk
thnt a closed carriage stopped near uie.
Iaj Irving opened tha door and calle4
my name. 1 went to her surprised beyond
men ur at seuuig her there, while she was
equally surprised to see me. 1 sat with
her In her carriage for a while giving her
as much of my history as I deemed nocres
sary. Then she offered me three hundred
pounds a yoar to be her traveling compan
ion. I can never forget the pleasure of
that hour. Here was food and clothing
and a chance to see the great world that I
had so longed to see. Lady Irving handed
me a gold coin to pay the kind hearted
people who had so generously given me a
home for nearly a mouth. When I went
to bid Miss O'Hone goixl-bye I slipped the
money into her hand. She smilod her
thanks aud with a hearty 'liod bless you'
bade me good-bye."
"I bless Hie klud Father for watching
over my little friend," I said, with fervent
heart. "What would you have done but
for 1 July Irving's timely visit?"
"I do not know, but some way would
have been provided. My father taught
nie to do the best I could and trust the rest
"Did you ever think of Waverland and
feel sorry that you left?"
"I often thought of that place but was
not sorry for leaving. Though I was near
ly tempted to advertise aud sign my own
came, thinking if you wished to find me
you would in that wuy be able to do so."
"I thought you might do thnt, and from
the time you left Waverland until I found
yon in Denver, I never picked up a paper
without looking through the list of adver
tisements. But I never found the name, I
louged to see."
"I have had a very happy time with La
dy Irving. She has proved to be all that I
anticipated on the first evening of our ac
quaintance." "But did you still hopo to see me againf
Or give any thought to the lonely old
home that you had deserted?"
"Yes, I thought of you and Waverland
ery often, but I always tried to crush the
thought you were euguged to Annie
"Anniel What mode yon think that!"
"Because you were fond of her, and then
your mother said you were to marry her."
"Aud did you think that I could ever for
get my little sunbeam who hod filled inj
heart witli warmth und gludness?"
"I did not know!"
"But you did know, or you would never
have fled from Waverland. You know
'the wicked flee when no one pursued!.'

Arm. A i we were returniug to t'ue hotel
we could hear Melvorne pleading earnest
ly with Lady Irving to set their wedding
liar. But that lady was aa obstiuato as
Stella had been.
Melvorne came to my room that evening
with a gloomy face. He gave vent to his
disappointment by saying:
"1 always knew women were head
strong. Ily Irving has promised to be
ny wife, yet she will not name our wed

evening myself! Do you think they have

"I don't know, but we seem fated. We

goodnight with returning cheerfulness.
BAPTKR XX THE MVSTERT REVEALED.
The morning found our party ready for
mw sights and scenes.
"What have you on the programme for
-day, Ixdlard?" asked Melvorne.
"The famous springs, six In number, are
snong the first objects," he answered.
"Kit her to-day or to-morrow I want our

ttella stood like one In a trance. Then
with tears of joy she thanked me for re
vealing its content.
"I have spent hours In trying to read
thai little hidden message. That and the
fifty pounds I told you of I found in an en
velope addressed to me and. Cu a tittle note

" J nis is innena a revelation," sain Mel

than this translated message from the de

Son of Kdward Kverett, Karl of York,
from Ravens Park, England,' read the
duke with emotion.
"How strange that this message should
have remained hidden until uow," said
"It was like my father to provide In
some uneipected way for my learning of
his birth aud rank," Bald Stella, holding
the priicioua cryptogram as though it
could take wings and fly. "How strange
it seems to kuol? that I have one relative
in all this world of people," she continued,
going to the duke and offering her hand.
"Yon are my very own cousin. My fath
er's words have proven it!"
"You are not sorry, are you, little cou
sin?" asked Melvorne, seeing the tears
glistening in her eyes.
"O, no, cousin James, but gladl so
"WelL now, I have something else to do
besides visiting boiling springs," he said,
turning to us. "Aud I want your aid, so
all follow me." And Melvorne led the
way back to tha hotel, keeping Stella by
At the hotel he paused a moment, then
started down the street, still keeping Stel
la's hand upon his arm.
At a place where a lawyer's sign swung
to and fro In the summer's breeze Mel
vorne paused, and opening the door, asked
us to enter. The room was Urge and fit
ted up la the most approved style for an
office. It was a sort of combination law
office aud real estate business room.
After entering, Melvorne asked if Law
yer Jones was present.
"Yes, sir," answered a gentleman, "that
Is my name. jWbat can 1 do for you?" he
asked, making an easy bow to the ladles.
"I wish some Important papers made
out and sent to, England," said Melvorne
In a business way.
Then followe i the tedious legal process
of a transfer of property. Melvorne had
derided to divide his grandfather's estate
as It would have been divided had Stella's
father received his rightful share. At first
Stella objected to receiving it but the duke
While the lawyer was busy with Mel
vorne's papers, a man entered and asked
if Mr. Sharp was in. A gentleman from
the other desk answered to the same, say
"Have you money to loan?" aaked tha
"Yes sir, that Is my business." ana wered
"I want to borrow a thousand dollars on
that property," said the msn. handing a
document to Mr. Sharp as he spoke.
Mr. Sharp, a keen, shrewd business mau
took tha paper and after reading it over
"I know the property your deed des
cribes, and can loan you the money se
cured by a mortgage on that land."
"What per ceut mutt I give, sir?" aaked
"Ten per cent for five years time," said
"What is the eoramUilon?"
"Only six per cent."
"I must have it or lose my place," said
the man witli a sigh.
"As eooa as Jones Is at liberty we will
make out the papera," aald Mr. Sharp,
with a moat complacent smile as though
his ready fingers bad already secured the
commission, while in the near future a
vision revealed a foreclosure on the mort
gage and tha laud within his own grasp.

EXPERIMENTING WITH COLD
The laboratory of Prof- I'ictct, at
Ik-rlin, in denized for 1 lie invent!
gation of the effects of cold. The
refrigerating machinery, driven by
ho vera 1 powerful engines, keeps the
objects under observation at any
temperature between 20 and 2(10
below zero c. aa long a may be re
quired. The cooling it effected by
the evaporation of liquids, and is
divided into three stages, each with
its special apparatus. For the first
stage is used the mix lure of sul
phurous and carbonic acids known
as "Pictet's fluid," which i con
denned tit a pressure of about two
almospheres in a spiral tube cooled
by water. Oxide of nitrogen laugh
ing gas in (he liquid chosen for the
secoml staj,e. It is condensed at a
pressure of 10 or li atmospheres iu
a tube kept at about WP below zero
by the action of the fi--st ci.celi.
For (he third slageair is employed,
and passes inio a liquid siaie at a
pressure of 7.") atmospheres when
the temperature is kept at 125-be-i
low zero by the other circuits. The
evaporation of ihe liquefied air
gives a cold of obout 2( P below
zero. Absolute zero is placed at
27:i 3 below zero c, but l'rof. I'iclet
regards 255 below zero as about
the lowest aTa'nable artificial
temperature. One of the effects of
gfeat cold has bee.i the conversion
of quicksilver into beautiful fern
like crystals. Glycerine also has
been rrystalizcd; and cognac, has
been given by freezing the peculiar
mellowness commonly attained
only by long keep'tig. The most
important result thus fa' lmwcver,
