Mother and the girls wcro juite iu ec
stasies over the new house. The mascu
line members of the family were inclined
to bo dubious as to its advantages. The
chief objection which we liad to it was
that it was one of a row of eight, all ex
actly alike, and it was extremely difficult
to bo sure of the right door.
A week's practice, however, made that
all right; ours was the fourth house from
the south end of the row; as I walked
from tho ofiice along the street immedi
ately south of us, X poon became accus
tomed to Liking tho exact number of
6teps, after turning tho corner, which
would Lrtng me to the door.
Itesules, the hour at which I came home
(I am a proof reader on a morning paper
and my duties usually kept me at the
ofiice until al ter 8 a. in.) made it neces
sary for me to carry a latchkey. While
1 knew that of course our neighbors had
exactly the same conveniences which we
enjoyed, and looked for light to windows
m tne same portion of exactly similar
rooms, and cxiei iei;ced theannovanceof
smoky chimneys when the wind was. in
tho partic ular quarter which ' affected
ours, J did not dream that tho houses
were so precisely tho same that the kev
of one would unlock tho other.
v e had lived here about a week when
the ttreet car lino near by began running
owl cars. This was a boon for iue, ns it
saved me a walk of some length. The
car line ran within half a square of the
house, being on the next street north
of its.
me urst nigiit mat l rode home I was
so sleepy when I got out of the car that 1
scarcely knew what I was doing. Hith
erto the exercise of walking had kept me
wide awake until I got into my own room.
I managed to unlock (lib front, 'floor ,
however, and get upstairs, hnbit making
my movements noiseless, as I knew that
my mother was easily awakened and did
not readily go to sleep again.
The room which I occupied was over
the dining room, the door being nearly
opposite to the head of the stairs. Some
what to my surprise the gas was not
burning oi tho landing: J.he girls had
probably forgotten to liglit it befp'ro go
ing to bed. 1 groped my way carefully
along, and at last reached the door of
my room. I entered; it was like the hall,
pitch dark. I tried to find tho table, on
which there" should bo a lamp, and my
hand ame in contact with something
else. I drew a match from my pocket
and struck it. As' I 'held it sct ened by
my hand I saw that tho room was si
etrango one. Suddenly, all was dark; ii
was ndti ,hat the match had gone out,
but the brain wa shadowed; I knew
nothing more.
I was always rated courageous; I
seemed to lack that instinctive fear
which causes some to shrink from dark
ness and loneliness. My brothers and
listers often declared that I would never
be frightened; not even, added May,
with a shudder, if a burglar were to pre
sent liimself liefore rao and demand my
valuables. Those would not tempt any
well reguiatcd burglar, lieing small and
of little intrinsic value; Tau 1 should not
iiko to lose theni, and I have always de
termined to defend my property stoutly
if threatened, providing, of course, that
1 had suflicient warning of the robber's
intentions to enable mo to act.
I awoke one morning at that proverbial
darkest hour, jiist betore the dawn. I
had no idea what time it vas. as the
whole house was wrapped in silenco and
darkness; it is from alter events that I
am able to say that it was nearly morn
ing. I had started suddenly from 6leep,
but at first I eoul; not tell wliat had
aroused me. As 1 lay listening for some
sound to follow that which Lad recalled
mo from the land of dreams, my thoughts
turned instifrc'tivejy to our next door
neighbors, who had been domiciled in
tho row for about a week.
Nobody knew them, although several
of the older residents liad spoken of call
ing upon them perhaps; for wo liked
.he looks of the ladies and they seemed
inclined to be friendly. The men, how
ever, seemed to bo homo all day and
away all night. They were not work
ingmen one could see that by their
hands, their clotliing, their bearing and
we were afraid thev wero not just what
they should be. 'We recalled certain
.rewsome stories of counterfeiters, bur
rlars and other criminals who settle in
respectable neighborhoods and only ex
cited suspicion by the unreasonable hours
which they kept.
"Was that a' 6tep up the 6tairs? I lis
tened more intently, my ' wandering
thoughts recalled from all other subjects.
Surely it was. and that was another.
There was a burglar in the house. I
sprang out of bed and enveloped myself
in a circular which chanced to be hang
ing on a chair, as I ha4 worn it out into
l he rain the precediug evening.' If I was
to receive a burglar I was determined
tliat the proprieties should not suffer; I
would have something on besides my
night dress; while if he went to any other
room I could steal a!PS M16 dark halls to

In spite of my boasted courage, my
heart beat very loudly as the step was

landing just outside my own door. 1
grasped the poker firmly, however, try
uy hand. It was a plain, heavy bar rf
iron, at which tho others often laughed,
declaring that it must make mo tired to
rake tho tire.
Tho knob of tho door turned slowly
and cautiously, and the burglar enters
tho room. W'hat would he do next? He
closed the door as gently as ho had
opened it, and for u moment seemed un
decided. Did he have a dark lantern
and a pistol? I could not imagine a
burglar without such adjuncts, both of
which were unfamiliar objects to me;
and I shivered as I thought of the advan
tage which he would have over me and
my ioker.
Evidently tho dark lantern was not in
working order, however, for ho simply
struck a match. The little tlarae showed
mo that our new neighbors were not un
founded upon reason this was one of
them. They were certainly a gang of
Ho mado a step toward the dresses. To
reach it ho must pass me. Ho was within
reach of my arm. I raised my weapon,
and, uttering the loudest scream of
which my lungs were capable, 1 struck
him on tho side of the head. He fell like
a log to the floor. Horrors! I had killed
him I
My renewed screams alarmed the
house and the others were speedily by my
side. I had already lighted the gas and
was on my knees beside the man that 1
had struck, vainly endeavoring to recall
life. My assortment of restoratives, I
was afterward assured, was sufficient to
have revived a dozen swooning men.
"Wliat in tho world" 7egan my
brother as he apjeared upon the scene.
Ho was tho first to come to the room.
"Oh, my burglar's come!" 1 exclaimed,
half hysterically, "but I've killed him."
"Wholly unnecessary severity," ro

"While conversing with Surgeon II. W.
Whitaker he said he joined his ship, the
Mohican, at San Francisco. Cal., in May,
1885, and sailed in her through the Gol
den Gate the following month for an ex
tensive cruise in the South Pacific, which
lasted over three years. His supply of
information shows that ho has been a
close observer of tho customs and habits
of the Polynesians. As a surgeon, ho
was brought more intimately in contact
with them than others, and "had the op
ortiinity of becoming personally ac
quainted with many of their strange
doings, and he says some of his best
friends have been formed anionc those

History of koup Making,
The accurate history of the manufac
ture of soap stretches back to the facto
ics built ut Marseilles, when there was
tn apparent recognition of the principles
f saponification. Neither then nor till
ed centuries later, however, was there
my desiro to. understand, what tbp prin
ciple was, and for many years every
afiort to wrest tho secret from chemistry
md make soap boiling an art was fought
by tho manufacturer and workman.
"The factories at Marseilles had around
them all the materials necessary for son p
making' says a recent Engik'i work
upon this Ai f. ?:The pljye tree, (be fruit
of wldch yields a fixed oil in great abun
dance, nourished in the south of France,
while tho shores of tho Mediterranean
yielded an ample supply of maritime
plants from which crude soda was ob
tained by calcination. As the time pro
gressed Italy furnished olive oil, while
Spain contributed crude soda, or barilla."
Tho gradual development 'of the art,
wlule extremely interesting to the chem
ist, is of nq snecjaj jnter est to the general
reader. Leblanc's discovery of a "process
for the manufacture of soda from com
mon salt, Chevaeul's explanation of the
nature of the reaction which takes place
when fatty substances are treated with
boiling solutions of caustic alkali, gave
an exactness to the manufacture of soap
such as it had never before had; but it
was a long tune petore the pouers would 1
avail themselves of the aid of these men
of science. Steam succeeded the ordin
ary fire, and the list of fatty substances
used in soap making grew and grew, un
til there are now a dozen of them form
ing the base of soap, with over one hun
dred entering into the composition cf
different kinds of soap to a greater or
less degree. The Kitchen.

The negroes are progressing. A dental
school for their race has been established
in Nashville, Tenn. It is the first insti
tution of the kind 10 the wprld. A few
years ago negro dentists would have ,
starved, out there is now a good prospect j
for fortunes for them. V hen a negro ;
was a slave he liad the best teeth in the -world.
As soon as he became a citizen
hu teeth began to decay. This if not so ,
much tho result; of the impbiidon of
suffrage on pur brother in black as of his j
change in diet' and habits. . So loig as ho j
went to bed at dark and lived on corn j
bread and fat meat he was all right, j
When he began to indulge in whisky and

tional drink of kava, by first chewing the
root until it was well masticated, then
placing it iu a wooden basin which they
made for the purtjose, and mixing it with
water, it was ready to be served out. Ho
said the first thought of this is always
repulsive to a civilized white man, and he
invariably refuses to drink of it when
offered to him, but if he stays in the
islands long his prejudice is sure to lw
overcome, and it is not a great while be
fore he becomes a convert and is fond of
the strange drink.
In describing the process of brewing
tho strange beverago ho said a young
girl, the most comely and attractive in
a household or village, was tho cue sc
lectod to chew tho root, which would
first bo thoroughly cleansed and broken
into small pieces suitable for tho size of
the damsel's mouth. Before commenc
ing to masticate she would invariably
thoroughly wash out her mouth with
water in presence of all the assembled
guests, and would then fold her graceful
person, a la Turk, upon a mat spread on
the floor, and chew and chew, all in one
niouthfuj, until a suflicient quantity
would be ready. Tho hands, in the
meantime, having been also washed,
should receive tho bolus, and with a
graceful motion dath it into the bowl,
made of wood, in the shape of a tin wash
basin with four short feet, when the
water would be added and tho chewed
root thoroughly mixed up with the hands
and by a dexterous man tier all tho coarse
