"It is your turn this evening, Ather

which you can truthfully vouch for."
Jack Gray, a darkeyed student nt
whose room in Cambriu a few of hi
intimate friends had gathered, resumed
his fragrant Havana, and sent up
ward a blue wreath of smoke as he
settled himself in a more comfortable
attitude for listening.
"Turn thegns down a little, Jack;

I am a second wife. Inhis youthful
days my husband loved and married
a beautiful woman. 1 have been told
that upon her bridal eve the orange
blossoms that confined her veil were
not more fair than she.
"What a charming bride!" was
softly whispered among the guests,
80 attractive and loving was she in
character that even envy was dis
. armed, and she reigned as queen in
the hearts of relatives and friends.
After the festivities of the hour she
bade a loving adieu to all and hastened
with her husband to enter the- carriaco
waiting at the door. Scarcely had
the impatient horses turned from
the veranda when the rustling of 11
rabit in the hedge startled them, and
leaping aside, in an instant they over

to be uninjured, but Alice, his lovely
bride, was dead.
I pass over the grief and horror of
the scene. Three days later they
buried her, still in her bridal robes, on
the plantation, beneath the shade of
a branching tree, near which flowed a
tinv stream of water, its 6weet mur

Here her sorrowing husband kissed
for the last time the marble forehead

a vine-covered veranda .occupied with
an interesting book, Mr. tiray stole
quietly behind me, and placing his
etrong.lovinghand upon my shoulder,
startled me by saying:

Mr. Gray, and it was some time be

I hastened to welcome him home, but
started with terror at the worn
look of his always kindly face. With
ill concealed constraint he returned
my greeting. Then in measured ac
cents he told me of what had happen

how his thoughts had wandered tc
the past. " ' ,
Not a day passed that he did not
visit Alice's tomb. True as he had in
tended to be to me, this trial proved
too much for him. I knew he blamed
himself for ever calling another wife.
Months passed. My health became
delicate. By dwelling constantly on
the great and t range misfortune
which had deprived nie ol a loving

Singular Prussian Law.
. One of tho most remarkable meas
ures enacted by tho Prussian Landtag
during the session which has just been
brought to a close is a law providing
for compensation to agriculturist for
damage done to their crops by game.
The damage is not to be paid by the
owners of tho game, who almost
invariably bolona to territorial no
bility, both great and small, but by
the other agriculturists, farmers, and
peasants whose crops the game has
refrained from injuring on that par
This extraordinary method of squnr-
ing accounts must ue an riouieu to

Prussian Landtag is composed almost
entirely of petty territorial nobility

it is incredible that a man fo enlight
ened and progressive as t ha present
Kmperor of" Germany should have
given his sanction to a law which, in
the words of tho old proverb, 'rob

its provisions, it will become more
profitable to have one's crops injured
by game than to have them left
undamaged. Toronto Mail.

Regularity of Habit.
Ono of the mostdimeult of nil minor
habits to acquire is that of regularity.
It ranks with that of order. The
natural inclination of most persons is
o deter until the last possible moment,
or to put off to another time, where
this can possibly be done. Yet habits
of regularity contribute largely to tne
ease and comfort of life. A person
can multiply his efficiency by it. The
mind can neso trained that at certain
hours in the day it win turn to a par
ticular lineof duty, and at other hours
to other ana different labors. I he
very diversity is restful when attend
ed to in regular order. Hut let these
run together and the duties mix, and
what before was easy is now annoying
and oppressive. And the exact differ
ence between many is at this point.
There are those who confuse and rush,
and attempt to do several things at
once, and accomplish little, while oth
ers will quietly proceed from one duty
to another, and easily accomplish a
vast deal of work. The difference is
not in the capacity of the two, but in
the regular met hods of the one as com
pared' with the irregular and confused
habits of the other. .

Many recent experiments havo been

the efficiency of the methods.

A Whistling Well.
In the town of Great Valley, Catta
raugus county, there is an interesting
curiosity familiarly known as "Tlie
Whistling Well." It is on the farm of
Colonel Wesely Flint, and was dug by
the Colonel's father, some forty-five
years ago, to tho depth of forty-five
feet, when no water accumulating, it
was abandoned. Some time after, a
strong current of air was noticed
rushing in and out of the well and a
Hat stone, with an inch-a nd-three
quarters hole bored in it, was fitted
over it. Into this hole a whistle was
fastened, which changed its tune as
the air was drawn up or down,
and it was soon found to be a reli
able weather barometer. In settled
weather the whistle was silent; but if
stor.-n was coming on, its approach
was heralded bv a warnina shriek of the
whistle as the air rushed out of the
well. When the storm passed and
clear weathir came, the current of an'
changed and was drown into the well
and the faithful whistle told tho
story bv its changed tone The
whistle itself has long been worn out,
but the well still tor tells the change of
the weather to those who understand
the meaning of the varying current of
air. In rainy weather a stream or
spray 's forced up through the open

AN UNCLAIMED ESTATE.
Where the Frlendlegi Sailor's Money
Goes st His Death.
When a sailor on an American ship
dies at sea, at the next port that the
vessel touches where there is an
American consul his money and claims
for money are turned over to tho. con
sul, who in turn send them to the
United States circuit court office in
this city or in the district whence the
sa'lor shipped. To get tho money the
sailor's relatives aro required to filo
their affidavits in the court sottmg
foth that they are next of kin.
Quite a sura of money thus drifts in
to the United States court clerk's office
in the Federal building, says tho New
York Times. The amounts received
run from 2 to 120 ordinarily, but
sometimes tho effects of a seaman of
saving disposition amounts to much
more. Recently two bank books call
ing for about f2.0U0 and $600 in casn
The sailor was an old follow who
had put away his money carefully. No
claimants have yet appeared to secure
tho money. It will bo kept for several
years, and then, if no one can put in
valid claim to tho estate, it will revert
to the government.

The orlsrinal Fane-.':: H.ll 'n P
was completed in 17 4'.. it -brick,
and about 100 feet in length by
forty feet in width. This Faneuil Hall
was almost entirely destroyed by fire
in July, 1761; only the brick walls re
mained standing. It was rebuilt in
1764; and it was in this second Faneuil
Hall that tho town meetings of our
Revolutionary porio.1 were held. By
and by it was found necessary to en
large tho hall to double its original
size. This was done in 1805. by add
ing a third story and rebuilding one of
the side walls. It is this third hall
which has so often re-echoed to tho
eloquence of Webster and Everett, of
Choate and Sumner, and so many other
statesmen and patriots.

A Curious Paradox.
The water which will allay our
burning: thirst augment! it when con
cealed into snow, so it is stated by ex
plorers of the Arctic regions that tho
natives "prefer enduring the utmost
extremity of thirst rather than at
tempt fo iN'innve it by eating . snow."
Yst if the sn.iw bo melted it becomes
drinkable water. Nevertheless, al
though if melted te'oro eatering tho
mouth it assuages thirst like other
water, when melted in the mouth it
has tho 'opposite effect. To render
this paralox mors striking, we havo
only to remember that ico, which
melts more slowly in tho mouth, is
very eSc'.'Hit in allaying thirst..
