HOW THE MINISTER WAS WON

The church was crow dud. The con

Generally there la a perceptible dl

the sermon; but an this was the maiden
attempt of Dr. Howard, the parishion
ers had decided to remain. The most
enthusiastic of the congregation wait
ed In the vestibule after service to
congratulate the young rector.
He received many tempting offers to
dinners, parties, etc., but courteously
declined thorn all. To the aina.eiiient
of the congregation he accepted the
Carleton's Invitation, and shortly after
wards announced that lie had decided
to locale with them permanently.
The Cniictous were aristocrats from
the root up. Judge Sidney (!uy Carle

W'inthrop, and rose rapidly In polities

Merle was the youngest, liveliest,
and most tactful of the three. Edith
was more sedate, and while a clever
entertainer, she failed to impress one
with her studied frankness. Julia was a
human icicle. Exaggerated dignity,
excessive pride, and extreme egotism
retarded one's advances, and left her
With but low friends.
From the very start the Misses
Carleton were enndliiaios for Dr. How
ard's heart. No man ever received
The war was on. The general topic,
ami the most Important (piestion was,
"Who would win the minister?"
To a close observer it was quite evi
dent that Dr. Howard found Merle
more interesting than either Julia or
Edith. An even, occurred shortly ufler
that couHrmcd this opinion.
"1 am requested to visit an Indigent
family this afternoon," said Dr. How
ard, one day. "Would you like to ac
company me. Miss Merle?"
"Coitainly," she said, delighted and
flattered, "but are you quite sure I
shall not bore you?"
"I am iKisltivo you won't," ho re
It was a long walk, and a most
jdeasnnt one. They conversed congen
ially on all topics. They turned into a
lovely lane, nnd saw in the distance
the home of tho destitute family. They
found them in a very poor clrcum-
ptnnces, and sadly in need of aid. Af
ter an hour of comforting and promis
ing early succor, the visitors departed.
It was A joyful return. They seemed
to understand each other perfectly.
The cider Howard prided himself on
his Illustrious ancestry. He had map
ped out his son's destiny, bo to speak,
and had determined that Benton
should marry a woman that would add
to the lustre of his nnme. Now, it so
happened that this astute gentleman
became advised of a pretty-well ad
vanced affaire du coeur between his
son, and a certain pretty maid. Nora
Deane by name a good girl, but poor
The idea of Howard marrying into a
family of clerks and carpenters! Pre
jKwtcrous! The affair must come to an
end at once!
About this time, Howard noticed the
cold and Indifferent attitude of his
friend and college chum, Carl Winter.
He couldn't account for it. They had
never quarreled; Winter had not criti
cized any of his actions they seemed
to be getting along splendidly. Then
why this sudden change?
Winter had Imagined that his atten-

As Dr. Howard and Merle walked
slowly along on tlK'lr return Jouruey,
they were suddenly confronted by

"Ilenton Howard! Scoundrels never

"Ahn! at your old sport ngaln, eh? We

The speaker's face was distorted
Merle drew closer to Dr. Howard,
lie was pale, his eyes, flashing defi
ance, remained fixed to the spot; and
with remarkable self-control, he allow
ed the speaker to po on.
"Yes, little Nora remembers you,
too. It was that smooth tongue of
yours, you blackguard, that won her
from me! Y'our face should change
at the sound of that name, proud man!
Ah, but I see you have schooled your
self too well! This lady doesn't know
you; she doesn't know how shallow
you are. I I! "
"Silence, coward. You miserable,
despicable man; silence!" commanded
the minister, unable longer to restrain
his anger. "My calling protects vou.
Were I yet a man of tho world, I
would choke you into Bllence."
Merle, pale with fear, moved from
the rector'8 side.
"Carl Winter," he continued, "I have
known you from childhood. You know,
nnd all those that remember me know,
that I was a wayward and frivolous
youth. But since I have entered the
ministry I defy you or anyone else to
recall a breath of slander that has ever
coupled my name with any Impro
priety." Miss Carleton, unable to support her
self, sunk breathlessly to the ground.
The strain was too great. Dr. How
ard was at her side in a moment.
"Ah! see man see!" he said, plead
ingly, ee, how w e have been racking
her young heart!"
Raising her tenderiy, he held her in
his arms until Bhe regained conscious
ness. Then a blush bloomed the roses
In her cheeks. Releasing her, he said
tremulously and with Intense pathos:
"Miss Carleton, I pray you, forgive
me for seriously forcing you to po
through this ordeal; but my good name
my reputation, which I prize abovo
all things, was at stake. If I did not
prove the falsity of this man's asser

"No! no! no!" she cried, wringing
her hands, "I cannot I do not believe
"You don't, eh? Why?" asked Win
ter, angered by her devotion.
Her answer would decide whether
Dr. Howard was an unscrupulous
scoundrel, or whether her good name
would he smirched, and a hitherto tin
tarnished family record stained. Hef
love for the divine, nnd the great prldo
of tho Carletona forced her to reply:
"Because because tho world doesn't

"Now, Carl Winter," Dr. Howard ex

Thus the minister won.

BURGLARS IN BRIDE'S BED.
Fortunately for Young Couple This
Happened in France.
French politeness is continually as
suming new and bizarre aspects. The
latest example Is the gallantry of two
burglars toward a newly married cou
ple. M. and Mme. Leroy returned tc
their house at Vliioennes recently
from their honeymoon trip. To their
surprise they found in the passage a
large number of parcels.
"No doubt It is mamma, who has
sent some things in our absence," said
The couple went upstairs, but hard
ly had the wife cast a glimpse into
the bedroom when she sprang back
with the whispered exclamation
'burglars!" Peeping round the door,
the husband saw two men asleep,
their heads comfortably disposed on
the dainty pillows trimmed with lace.
The young bride screamed for help,
her cry waking the sleeping ruffians.
They sprang to their feet and ap
proached the couple threateningly.
Tremblingly the young woman Bald:
"Please go away, messieurs! Take
what you want, but dou't hurt us. We
are only Just marled.
"Don't be alarmed, little one," said
one of the robbers with a gallant bow.
"Since you are so polite, we won't
even take the parcels we had packed
up. We have slept two nights in your
do do (slang for bed). We didn't
think you were coming back so soon."
Then, just as they were leaving, one
turned and said, "Ah, you were lucky
to be honeymooners."
Then the delightful pair disappeared
into the night.

Admiral Schley's Reminiscence of His
Service Under Farragut.
At a Masonic banquet given In

and was called upon for a speech. In
the course of his remarks he dropped
Into reminiscences and told the veter
ans about Admiral Farragut, "the sea
king of the sovereign west," with
whom he served as a boy officer.
Admiral Schley, in telling of the
great union admiral, said that once
the accident of battle" deprived the
ship on which he Rerved of her com
mander, and the care of the vessel fell
Into his hands. "I was but a boy," he
said, "but the task frightened me. I
was told to take the ship and demol

An incident suggestive of Boccac
cio has just taken place in the village
of Eseszeran in Austria. Gaber Aron,
known in the village as a veritable
Don Juan, made eyes at the newly
married wife of Stephen Vlro, a small
landed proprietor. The lady told her
husband and they conceived the Idea
of having a little fun at Don Juan's
expense. She Invited him to the
house In her husband's absence.
He had only been there a few mln
utea when the lady, with well simu
lated alarm, announced the unexpect
ed return of her husband.
"Quick!" she cried, "there's no time
to be lost! Get into the flour bin!"
The husband Informed his wife that
he had sold the flour bin, and pres
ently two men came and carried it
away. On their way they dropped the
bin In the mud, the lid flew open, and
out rolled Don Juan covered with
flour. He crept away In great dlS'

Gate, where most of the magnificent
art treasures, for which he paid hun
dreds of thousands of dollars and
which he Intended to take to the Unit

Gate is Interesting, as its owner was
Mrs. Schenley of Pittsburg, whose
death recently resulted In the disper
sion of a huge property among her
relatives here and in America.
Rumor credits Mr. Morgan with the
intention of spending more time In
Indon in the future and going in for
society on a larger scale than he lias
ever dreamed of dofug before. He
was present at the dinner given by
Mr. Choate to the King and Queen
through a personal expression of the
King's approval, and with this and
other royal recognitions on the one
hand, and with his financial connec
tion with so many of the British aris
tocracy on the other hand, Mr. Mor
gan could fill his house with the social
elect without having to stop the gaps
with any nonentities. The under
standing is that he has lately acquired
rather a taste for this sort of tiling.
Another fact that points to the pos
sibly permanent residence of Mr.
Morgan In London is tho prospect tliut

schemes, which Yerkes hitherto has
managed to keep In abeyance, now

It is not generally known that when

he knows In what direction he should

But for the man wh. Is on a long

tration. In addition to the box con
taining tho compass, with its mag
netic needle, there is a covering disk
of transparent material, which Is ca
pable of rotation. In the cover of the
case are two slots, through which the
line of march can be sighted from one
prominent point to another, as the
traveler progresses. Upon sotting out
for the Journey the exact direction of
the destination should be ascertained
and with the needle pointing to the
north the case should be rotated un
til the line of vision through the slot
ted cover will point to the termination
of the march. Then, with the case in
this position, rotate the transparent
disk until the Indicating arrow on its
surface parallels the needle beneath.
Whenever the direction is needed
thereafter It Is only necessary to turn
the case until the two needles point
In the same direction, when the slots
will give the desired Information.

A baker's oven heated by electricity
Is an operation In Montauban, France,
and it Is said to be a success In every
particular. From the standpoint of
economy, It Is said to be superior to
fuel, for the reason that the heat Is
under absolute control, and when the
baking la over the heat Is cut off
at once. Another advantage is that
the oven is heated up to the baking
point in much less time than with
coal or wood. This Is done In a few
minutes, and the great celerity with
which the oven Is placed In working
condition Is due largely to the fact
that there Is no energy wasted, but
all Is directed to the heating of the
oven. The latter Is entirely enclosed,
with no opening except the door
through which tho bread is entered
ar,d withdrawn, and, accordingly, no
heot Is lost up tho chimney, as with
the flre-heated oven.
Tho heating elements, of which
there are twenty, are placed on racks
at the Bide of the Interior, and are
raised and lowered from the outside.
They are raised while the bread is
placed Inside and lowered toward the
end of the baking, During the initial
netting of the oven quite a consider
able amount of the current Is consum
ed, but, having reached the desired
temperature, a very small current is
sufficient to maintain the proper de
gree of heat.
Shall We Eat or Drink Coffee.
To such persons as can not drink
hot coffee on pain of a disturbance of
the digestion, coffee Jelly Is recom
mended by the Lanse, the well known
English medical authority. Gelatine is
cooling, soothing, thirst assuaging and
anti-acid. It also bus the property
of presenting the destruction In the
body of proields, such as albumen.
Moreover, the astringent principles of
the coffee are nulllflod by the gelatine,
which Is thus In many ways an excel
lent vehicle for the stimulant. Exces
sive coffee-drinking Is, of course, an
evil, but In moderation coffee Is to bo
preferred to alcohol In that It dimin
ishes organic waste and causes energy
without subsequent collapse.
The Mendellnn Law.
The great Interest with which the
Mcndcllan law Is retarded by biolo
gists Is evidenced by the fact that In
the current number ot Biometrika no
less than three articles are devoted to
It. In accordance with this law, the
characteristics of parents are distrib
uted In hybrid offspring according to
a numerical law, and the hybrids are
not Intermediate In their characteris
tics between their parent forms, but
have certain unchanged characteris
tics of one parent or the other. The
law was originally worked out In re
gard to certain plants.
Why Not Invent a Stoking Machine?
An Italian shipbuilder has Invented
an electrical device which will pre
vent the stokers on ocean steamships
from shirking their work. If the stok
ing Is not properly done the machine
gives the alarm. The Invention has
been adopted by the Italian navy.
It Is well enough to keep the stokers
at work, hut why not Invent a machine
that will make their work easier? Why
not devise a machine that will give
fresh air to the stokers and protect
tbem from the fierce heat ot the furnaces?

The walls are built of 2x4 Inch stud

to form a dead air space Inside. The

to the roof, as well as tho walls.
From the cross-section It will be
seen that the total height of tho wall
on the north side Is 11 feet and of that
on the south side 8 feet. The roof
has the same pitch on both sides, ho
that there Is a drop of 3 feet from one
section of the roof to tho other, at

ald. Milk Soon Sours.
E. W. K., Ohio. We have been hav
ing some trouble with sour milk on
the route and among some few re
tail customers. The night's milk has
a sour smell on tho following morn
ing, and the can tops are left up and
there Is good out-of-doors air; morn
ing's milk has tho same smell and
sours in about 24 hours. Cans are
washed and scalder each day. We are
feeding oat. clover and timothy hay,
and oat straw. For grain we feed fresh
malt from the brewery, and stock
beets. Cows have water In the stable
and have not been out for three
weeks on account of cold weather.
I may say that in my experience
with milk I find that If the milk la
dean, and the vessels which are used
for milking and keeping It In are per
fectly clean, the temperature at which
It Is kept will control the keeping qual
ities. If this milk has been cooled im
mediately after milking to a tempera
ture of 50 degrees Fahr, or under, as
it should be, there Is only one cause,
so far as I can see, for It souring
aud that is the feeding of fresh malt
from the brewery.
Purifying Milk by Ozone.
An apparatus in use In Germany for
(he purification of milk by (ionization
Is so constructed that the. milk con
tained in a vessel flows thence in a
thin stream Into another vessel placed
beneath. The wires and carbon points
of a strong electric battery are so ar
ranged that the arc formed by the
jumping of the current from one rar
bou point to the other sses through
or in close proximity to the stream of
milk. The ozone which Is thereby
engendered from the oxygen of the
air is said to be sufficient to kill all
micro-organisms contained in the
milk. While no reference has been
made to the use of this apparatus for
the purification of water, there seems
to be no reason why ozone could not
be applied to this end, unless it t
the difference in cost between the
milk and water, the price obtainable
for the latter possibly not permitting
the use of this purifying agent.
Pasteurization of Cream.
To test the relative merits of pas
teurizing sweet and sour cream, a
number of trials have been made at
tho Dairy School of the Ontario Agri
cultural College during December and
January. On the whole, better results
have been got by the pasteurization of
the cream when sweet, or as soon as
delivered by the patrons or hauler.
This cream contained from .2 to .6 per
cent of acid and w as pasteurized with
out difficulty. In some cases the pas
teurized ripe cream was cooled and
churned Immediately, with good re
sults In flavor and texture of the
butter. So far as the work of this
dairy school hits gone It Indicates that
good results are likely to be got in
cream-gathering creameries by the
pasteurisation of the cream, sweet it
possMe; if not. then pastcurle It
after ripening or souring.
Remodeling an Old Barn.
D. McK. I have an old barn 32 feet
wide and U'l feet long having 16 feet
posts; how should I go about extend
ing Its height and length?
I would recommend putting a steep
high roof. on the same posts, which
would add considerable to the capacity
of the barn. It Is very easy to lengthen
the building by the addition of one or
more bents to either end. Barns 70
feet or over In length are tho better
for having two drive ways, with ona
or two mows between them.
