THE FIKST 11 A LI. Wet and dreary. It is midwinter; the ft eno is Kirklinglon, on tlie I-ondon and Northwestern; the liiue quarter to 11; just after the night mail liad flashed through without stopping Ix.und for LiytrM,l and the- north. The railway otlR-iuls aro collecting, preparatory to going oir duty for the night. "Where's Dan?" naked one of the crowd upon the platform. "I saw him in the hut lust after the quarter to 11 went through. Can't have come- to any harm, surely?" "No; he said he'd seen something drop from the train, and ho went down the line to pick it up." And Dan had picked up something. It was a Inisket, a common white wicker lia.k t, with a lid fastened down Iy a string. What did it contain? Dirty clothes? What? A laby a child Iialf a dozen weeks old, no more. "Whero did you coino across it?" asked one. "Lying on tho line, just where it felL lVrhaps it didn't fall, icrhapg it was chucked out. What matter? I've got it, and got to look after it, that's enough r..e lor me The little mite's linen was white and of tine material, but lay upon an old shawl and a few bits of dirty flannel. All they found was a dilapidated purse, a common snap lag purso of faded brown leather. Inside was a brass thim ble, a iaivn ticket and the half of a Dank of England note of 100. A new parson Ilarrold TrefTry had come lately to Kirklington. lie is now paying a round of parochial visits, accompanied by an old college chum, who is spending Christmas with him. 'Yonder," said Treffry, pointing to a thi.i thread of smoke which rose from waio gaunt tree-.- iutothc sullen winlrv air, "yonder is tho house if, indeed, it deserves so grain! a name tho hovel, rather, of one whoso case is the hardest of all tho hard ones hi my parish. Tlu's man is a mere hodgcr and ditcher, one who works for any master, most often for tiio railwa3, but who is never certain ( o a job all tho year around. He has a swarm of young children, and has just lost IiLi wife. Ho is absolutely prostrated; aghast proliably at his utter incapacity to do hij duty bv his motherless little ones. I wonder whether you could rouse him. If you could only get lum to make a si rn. or cry, or laugh, or to take the smr.!le.-.t interest In common affairs. Jovli. I believe you're tho very man.

Perhaps when Hie father sees them interested and uaiused ho may warm a little, speak, jierliaps approve, per haps smile, and in the end give in. Jack, will yoij, try? Jack Newbiggin was by prof ession a convevanccr, out nature had intended him for a new Houdin, or a wizard of tho north. He -was more than half a professional by the time he was full grown. In addition to the quick eye and the facile wrist he ltad the rarer gifts oi the suave manner pnd tho face of brass, lie liad even studied mesmerism and clairvoyance, and could upon occasion surprise his audience considerably by lus power. They entered the miserable dwelling together. The children eight of them were all skirmislung over the floor, except one, a fluid of C or 7, a bright yed. exceedingly beautiful boy, the least wero not nature's vagaries well known li'.:ely to bo born among and be long to such surroundings, who stood be tween the legs of tho man himself, who had his back to tho visitors, anil was crouclung low over the scanty tire, The man turned his head for u mo ment, gave a blank stare, then nn im IcrcentibIo noil and once more he glow ered down upon the tire. 'Here, little ones, do you see this gentleman? lie's a conjuror. Know what a conjuror is. Tommy?" catching up n mite cf 4 or 5 from tho lloor. "No, not you; nor you, Sarah; nor you.

JIo had fortunatelr jillcd y hi ; jxxrkets with nuts, oranges and cakes lvfore leaving the parsonage, so ho had half his apparatus ready h) hand. The pretty lxy had very soon left the father at the lire i:nd had come over ti join in the fuu, going back, however, to cxliiLit his share of the spoil and describe voluminously what luul occurred. This and the repeated shouts of laughter seemed to produce tome impression on liku. IVesently he looked, oyer ns shoulder and said-but wjthout an;, niation: "It is very good of ypu, sir, surely; verv good for jou to take so kindlv to the little chicks. It does them good" to laugh a bit, but It ain't much as they've had to make 'cm lately, "It Is good for all of us pow and again, I take it." said Jack, desisting and gojng towards him, the children gradually col lecting in a far off comer and comparing notes. You can't laugh, sir, if your heart' heavy v if you do it can be only a sham." While ho was speaking he had taken the liible from the shelf, and resuming his scat began to turn the leaves over, "I'm an untaught, rough countryman, sir, but I have heard tell that these strante tilings you do are only tricks; ain't It so?" Here was indeed a hopeful symptom, lie was roused then to take some interest In what bad occurred. Vest ia tlwmlaFketrirt'ric "All trick", of course; It all comes actk.-e," said Jack, as he nrocoeded explain some of the simple processe. hoping to enchain tho man s attention ! i I V .7 . "Ihats what I thought, sir, or IV. have given you a job to do. I've been in want of a real conjuror many a long day, and nothing li-ss'll do. JSeo here, sir" he said, as he took a small, carefully folded iiiter from lietween tho leaves of the liinlc, "do you see this?" It was half a Iiank of England note for "How, sir, could any conjuror help me to the other half?" ' "How did you como by it?" asked Jack at once. "I'll tell j-ou, sir; short as I can make it. Conjuror or no conjuror, you've got a kindly heart, and I'm main sure Unit you 11 help if you can." Dan then described how he hadsfftV-ked up the basket from tho 10:13 LiverjKxd express. "There was the linen; I've kept it. See here; nil marked quite pretty and pro . per, with lace round the edges, as though its mother loved to make the little one smart." Jack examined the linen; it bore a monogram and crest. The first he made out to mean ILL. M., and the crest Was plainly two hammers crossed, and tho motto. "I strike" not a common crest and he never remembered to have seen it before. And was that all? "'Cent the Iwink note. That was in a poor old purse with a awn ticket and a thimble. I kept them all." Like a true detective Jack examined every article minutely. Tho purse lore the namo Hester Gorrigan, in rude let ters inside, and tho pawn ticket was out in the same name. THE SECOND IIALF. When Jack Newbiggin got back to the parsonage he round that his host had ac cepted an invitation for them both to dine at the "big house," as it was called, tho country seat of the squire of the parish. "I have been fighting vour battles all day," began Mrs. Sitweil, the hostess, when seated at dinner next to Jack. "Was it necessary? I should liave thought myself too insignificant." "They were talking at lunch of your wonderful tricks in conjuring, and one said that tho skill might prove inconven ient when you played cards, for in stance." "A charitable imputation; with whom did it originate?" "Sir Lewis Mallaby." "Please point him out to me." He was shown a grave, scowling face upon the right of the hostess a face like a mask, the surface rough and wrinkled, through which tho eyes shone with a baleful light, like corpse candles in a sepulcher. Jack let his companion chatter on. It was his habit to get all the information possible about any company in which he found himself, for his own purpose us a clairvoyant, and when Mrs,' Sitweil flagged he plied her with artless ques tions, and led her on from one person to another, making mental notes to serve lum hereafter. It is thus by careful and laborious preparations that 'many of the strange and seemingly mysterious feats of the clairvoyant conjuror aro in formed. When tho whole party were assembled in tho drawing room after dinner a chorus of voices, headed by hat pf the hostess, summoned Jack to his work. There appeared to le only one dissen tient. Sir Lewis Mallaby, who not only did not trouble himself to, back up the invitation, but when the performance was actually begun was at no pains to conceal his contempt and cligust. The conjurer made tho conventional plum pudding in a hat, fired wedding rings into quartern loaves, did all man ner of card tricks, knife tricks, pistol tricks, an4 Juggled pn ponscientiously right through 'his repertory. " There was never a smile on Sir Lewis' face; ho sneered unmistakably. Finally, with an ostentation tliat savored of rudeness, he took out his watch, a great gold repeater , looked at it, and unmistakably yawned. Jack hungered for that watch di rectly he saw it. Perhaps through it he might make its pwner uncomfortablo, If only for a moment. But how $o get t into his hands? He asked for a watch a dozen were offered. No, none of these would do, t must be a good watch a repeater. Sir Lewis Mallaby's was the only one in the room, and he at first distinctly rer I used to lend it. liut so many earnest entreaties were addressed to, him, he hostess leading the attack, that he could not in common courtesy continue to re fuse. With something like a growl he took lus watch off the chain and handed it to Jack Newbiggin. A curious, old fashioned watch it was. which would have gladdened the' heart oi a watcn collector ail jeweiea ana enameled, adorned with crest and" in Bcnption an heirloom, which had pro bably been in the Mallaby family for years. Jack looked it pver puriOusly'j meditatively; then, suddenly raising his eyes, lie stared intently into bir Lewis Mallaby's face pnd almost as quick v aroppea them again, "This is far too valuable," he said cour teously, "too much of a treasure, to be risked in any conjuring trick. An ordi nary modern watch I might replace, but not a worn or art like this. And he handed it back to Sir Lewis, who received it with ill concealed satis faction. Ho was as' much, pleased, prob ably, at Jack's expression of possible failure in the proposed trick as at the re covery pf his property, Another watch, however, was nounded into a jelly and brought; put whole from a cabinet in an adjoining room. "Qh, but it is too preposterous," Sir Lewis Mallaby was heard to say, quite angruy. ino continued applause pro foundly disgusted him. "This is the merest charlatanism. It must bo put an end to. It is the commonest imposture. These aro things which he lias coached up in advnnce. Lej him bo tried with something which upon the face of it he cannot have learned beforehand by arti ticial means." "Try him, Sir Lewis; try him your self," cried several voices. " scarcely hike to end mvself to such folly or encourage' so pitiable, an exhibi tion." But he seemed to be conscious that fur ther protest would be in Jack's favor, so he said, Can vou tell what I have in this iocket?" tie touched the left breast of lus coat, "A pocketbook," "Ban! Every one carries a pocketbook in his pocket, "But do you?" asket) several of the by standers, all of whom were growing deeply interested in this strange dueL Sir Lewis Mallaby confessed that he did, and produced it an ordinary mo rocco leather parse and pocket book, all in one. : V,ntbU "Cof Uio "Certainly." I ullM i 1 . a "What does this pocketbook tontaia?" I'.viuence. "Evidence of what?" "Of facts that must, sooner or later, come to light." "What ridiculous nonsense! I give you my word tliat this jocket !ook con tains nothing absolutely nothing but a ISank of England note for 100." "Stay!" said Jack Newbitre-in. f.icincr him abruptly, mid sHaking in a voice of thunder, "it is not so you know it it is only the half!" And as he spoke he took the xcket look from the hands of tho really stupi lied baronet, and exhibited, for insiHO tion the half of a Iiank of England note for 100. There was muc h applause at this harm less and successful denouement of what threatened at one stage to lead to alter cation, perhaps to a quarrel. Hut Jack Newbiggiu was not s.itislied. "As you have dared me to do mv worst," said he, "listen now to what I have to say. Not only did I know that was only tho half of a note, but I know whero the other half is to be found." "So much the U tter for me," said the baronet, with an effort to apiear humor ous. "That other half was given to shall I say. Sir Lewis?" Sir Lewis nodded indifferently. "It was given to one Hester Corrigan. an old nurse, six years ago." "Silence! Say no more," cried Sir Lewis in horror. bir lewis liad teon a younger son; the eldest inherited the family title, but died eariy, leaving his widow to give him oosuiuuious neir. tne title remaining in aleyance until time showed whether the infant was a boy or a girl. It proved to be a boy, whereupon Lewis Mallabv, who nau tne iirst information of the fact, put iino execution a nerarious project which ue naa careruuy concocted In advance, A girl was obtained in a foundliner hos pital and substituted by Lady Mallaby's nurse, wno was in iewis pay, for the newly born son and heir. This son and heir was handed over to another accom plice, Hester Corrigan, who was bribed with 100, half down, in the shape of a hair note, the other half to be paid when she announced her safe arrival in Texas with the stolen child. It occurred to Mrs. Corrigan in her transit between London and Liverpool that though 100 would be acceptable on her arrival, the child would be only an encumbrance. Sho therefore threw the basket contain ing him out of tho window, forgetting that in it sho had for Bafety deposited her purse. It was the watch borrowed from Sir Lewis Mallaby which first aroused Jack's suspicions. It bore tho same crest two hammers crossed. . with the motto. "I 6trike" which was marked unon tho linen of tho child that Dan Blockitt fiiflrofl ur of Tli-L-linrW-i-oi tni i... 'VM -, initial of the name lallaby coincided with the monogram II. L. M. From theso facts and what wo had been told by Mrs. Sitweil, Jack rapidly drew his conclu sions, and made a bold shot, wlueh hit the mark, as we have seen. Lewis Mallabv s confession, combined with that of Mrs. Corrigan, who was found by tho police, soon reinstated the rightful heir, and Dan Blockitt in after years had no reason to regret the gener osity which had promoted liim to trive the little "foundling the shelter of his rude home. London Tid-Bits. Loiidou'n Growth pf population. When (ho population of England in 1601 was under 0,000,000 that of London was 9.8,8G3. The capital and the king dom have grown together, bu.t the for mer has always grown faster, so that while England (including London) mounted from nearly 9,000,000 in 1801 to ueariy o.ouu.uou ill ibhi loik on trrew from 958,803 tq 3;81C,483 in 1881. on don 'rnprd, than quadrupled jts people, whilo England (including London) did not quit triplo it; England (excluding London) advanced in a still smaller pro portion, and it will be seen that England, excluding all its big towns, exhibits a still feebler advance. But note this point" about London: its limits increase. 'If we had a series of maps shaded so as to show the popula tion we should see tho black central spot of London getting bigger and bigger the wen which pobbetdetested and de nounced growing mote and more por tentous in size put though the black spot grew bigger, yet its center grew lighter and lighter; and by the penter is not meant thai strictly limited area called the city, but something more like what London was when the century be gan. Take, in fact, the area occupied by the mass of those 958,803 who consti tuted the population of London in 1801. and fewer persons will bo found living upon it, while around it lies' a widening rmg, growing piacKer as the center whitens. While, however, London has grown so enormously in population and in so great a proportion compared with the fcst pf tlm " kingdom, " its rate of increase has not been at all commen surato with that pf many ' provincial towns, nor has it beei equaj tu that of tho iQwns. pf England as a whole. Nine teenth Century. Mr. Astor'a Expensive Yacht. Witliin a stone's throw of a South Brooklyn piet recently " were fifteen yachts, sloops and schooners, little and bi. They represented $1,000,000 of capi tal. The highest priced w-as Mr. Astor'a bis 273 feet long steam yacht Nourmahal, wliich lay looming up like an ocean steamer. Tlie NpurmahaJ post $300,000, and Mr. William" Astor, her owner, uses ner iot aoout inree montns in the year; tho other nine months she lies idle. The expense of running this leviathan toy is $o,000 per month. By the necessary ex pense is meant the cost of fuel and the wages and keep of her crew. What Mr. Astor spends in entertainments, etc., on board, of course nobody knows but him self. The expense, therefore, of keening tho Nourmahal for a year, outsido of her owner's personal expenditures, is: Interest on money invested, 18,000; expenses for i injo tiio ij m commission, $l,000; re pairs, etc., each spring, about $5,000; total, $41,000. From these figures it would be easy to estimate how much the yacht would cost to keep should she be iti commission the year round. Aloiit $100,000 a year wpuld just ahout cover it. Even Mr, Aetor, with all his wealth, could scarcely afford this, and so tho Nour mahal lies idle most of the time. Brook lyn Eagle. The tTnlvefiaa) Solvrut. Tact is the universal solvent.

How Cr Are Conpled. Tills operation must, according to the regulations of most roads, le performed by the aid of a short stick; but disre garding the regulation, partly to save tiuie and partly because of fear of the ridicule that would le called out by the exhibition of a lack of dexterity, the average brakeman uses his fingers. lie must lift the link and hold it horizontal ly until tho end enters the opening, and then withdraw his hand liefore the heavy drawbars come together. A de lay of a fraction of a second would crush tho hand or linger as under a trip hammer. And in oint of fact this delay does, for various reasons, frequent ly happen, and the nuuiler of trainmen with woun4cd hands to Ik; found in every large freight yard is sat! evidence of the fact. But again, assuming that this part of tho Oicration i. accomplished in safety, there is another and worse danger in the iMJssibiiity of Ining crushed btxlilv. Cars are built with projecting timbers on their ends at or near the center, for the puiixise of keeping the main bodv of each car twelve or fifteen inches from ita nci-!ilMr, but cars of dissimilar pat tern sometimes meet in such a way that the projections on one lap pass thoso on the other, and the space which should afford room for the man to stand in safety is not maintained. If the brakeman." i.i the darkness of iii"ht or the hurrv of his work, fails to note the jK-cuIiantics of the ears, he is mercilessly crushed, the pon derous vehicles often bamdn-' together with a force of many tons. A constant danger in coupliugund uncoupliii i.; the liability to catch the feet in angles in the track. Freight conductors are pcculiai lv liable to this, r.s V.e V.tv of u:i:-otij li.: (pulling out the coupling pin) generally devolves uion them, and must be done while the train is in motion. Walking rapidly along, in the dark, with the right hand holding a lantern and grasping the car, while the left is tugging at a pin which sticks, involves ierplexities uerein a moments Hesitation may prove fatal. B. B. Adams, Jr., in Scrib ner's Magazine, Dressing; the Hair lu Jupun. Tlie manner of wearing the hair in Japan is so elaborate tliat a Japanese woman cannot do up her own hair, but is obliged to go to one of these establish ments. It is quite interesting to watc h this operation. The worna seats herself on the lloor before a round mirror made of polished metal, and the hair dresser sets to work. It is really quite a formid able affair, as tho woman is apt to be very critical and insists on each hair be ing arranged just so. The whole ar rangement may be descrilied as a kind of large bow knot, and liecswax enters largely into the material used for the dressing. This has tho effect of makints the hair very stiff and shiny. The reason that the peculiar pillow is so much used is jso that the hair may not be dis turbed while asleep. l tus puiow is a block of wood with a notch cut in it for the back of the neck to rest in.
