At a recent London dinner a novelty
was mtroatred m tne snape of a menu
which soon bids fair to become a fad in
London circles, and which Is original
enough to deserve mention. The eldest
child of the house, Miss Enid Dickens
is , photographed by her aunt, well
known in London as an amateur
photographer. The photograph was
presented to each guest as a menu card.
The little girl Is represented spreading
out a tablecloth ou which is the word
"menu." Following this word there Is
room for the viands.
The idea is a pretty one, and It will
doubtless find many Imitators, especial
ly on such occasions as family reunions
and notably in the case of a dinner
given for a child's birthday. New

There Is a shout from somebody, and
then a alienee. The revolver in the
scuffle had gone off! Through the
house tbe sharp crack of a bullet rings
loudly, rousing many from their slumbers.
Lights can be seen in tbe passages;
terrified faces peep out from half
opened doors. Dora Talbot, coming
into the corridor in a pale pink cash
mere dressing gown trimmed with
swan's-down, in which she looks tbe
very personification of innocense and
youth, screams loudly, and demands
hysterically to be informed as to the
cause of the unusual noise.
The servants have rushed from their
quarters In alarm. Ethel ViUlers, with
a pale scared face, runs to Florence
Delmaioe's room, and throws her arms
round that young lady as she comes
out Dale but composed, to ask in a
clear tone what has happened.
As nobody knows, and as Florence
In her heart is more frightened than
she cares to confess, being aware
through Adrian that some of the men
are still up In the smoking room, and
fearing that a quarrel had risen among
them, she proposes that they should go
to the smokins-room in a body and
Old Lady FitzAlmont, with Lady
Gertrude sobbolng ou her arm, seconds
this proposal; and, being a veteran of
much distinction, takes the lead.
Those following close behind, are glad
of this, and hopeful because of it, her
appearance being calculated to rout
any enemy. The awful character of
her dressing-gown and the severity of
the night-cap that crowns her martial
head would strike terror to Die hearts
of any midnight marauders. They all
move off In a body, and guided on
consciously by Florence, approach tbe
Voices loud in conversation can be
heard as they draw near: the door is
slightly ajar. Florence drawing back
as ibey come up to it, the old lady
waves her aside, and advances boldly
to the front. Flinging wide open the
door, she bursts upon the astonished

Sir Adrian, whose gaite is fixed upjn
the fair vision in the trailing white
sown standing timidly in the door-way,
forgets to answer his Interrogator, and
the others, taken by surprise, maintain
a solemn silence.
"Why this mystery r demands Lady
FltiAlmont sternly. "Where is the
miscreant? Where Is the man that
fired that murderous shot?"
"Here, madame," replies the sur
geon dryly, indicating Arthur Dyne-
court by a motion of the hand.
"He who? Mr. Dynecoart?" ejacu
lates her ladyship In a disappointed
tone. "It was all a mistake, then? I
most say, Mr. Dynecourt," continues
the old lady in an indignant tone,
that I think yon might find a more
suitable time in which to play off your
Jokes, or to practice target shooting,
than in the middle of the night, when
every respectable household ought to
be wrapped in slumber."
"I assure yon, begins Arthur Dyne

composed, It was all an accident-

affair of the Stewarts, and Maitland
was showing us how it might hare oc

Put down that abominable weapon
at once, sir!" commands Lady Fitz
Almont, in a menacing tone, largely
mingled with abject fear. As she
speaks tbe retreats precipitately behind
Florence, thus pushing that young lady
to tbe fore.
"When my cousin unhappily
stumbled against me, aud the revolver
went off," goes on Sir Adrian. "I'm
deeply grieved, Lady FRiAlmont, that
this should hare occurred to disturb
the household; but, really, It was a pure

from between his eoiorieas lips.

amicus to Impress this conviction up-
"It might have been a very serlow
one, ssys tie surgeon gravely, regard
ing him witli a keen glance. "It might
have meant death to Sir Adrian!"
Florence changes color and glances
at her host with parted lips. Dora
Talbot, pressing her way through tbe
group in the door-way, goes straight
up to him as if impulsively, and takes
his hand in both hers.
"Dear Sir Adrian, how can we be
thankful enough foo your escape?" she
says sweetly, tears standing in her
bright blue eyes. She press his band
warmly, and even ra ses it to ber lips
in a transport of emotion. Standing
there in tbe pretty pink dressing-gown
that shows off her complexion to per
fection, Dora Talbot looks lovely.
'You are very good very kind," re
turns Sir Adrian, really touched by hei
eoccern, but still with eyes only for
the white vision in the doorway; ''but
you make too much of nothing. I am
ouly sorry I have been the unhappy
cause of rousing you from your rosy
dreams; you will not thank me tomor

Tbe word lily brings back to him his
last interview with Florence. He
glances burridly at her right hand;
yes, the rame lily Is clasped in her fin
gers. Has she sat ever since with his
gift before her, in her silent chamber?
Along in grief perhaps. But why has
she kept his flower ? What can it all
"We shall mind nothing, now you
are safe," Dora assures him tremulously-
"I think 1 might be shown some con
sideration," puts in Arthur, trying by
violent effort to assert himself, and to
speak lightly. "Had anything happened
surelv 1 should have been the one
to be pitied. It would have been my
fault, aud, Mrs. Talbot, 1 think you
might show some pity for me." He
holds out his hand, and mechanically
Dura lays her own in it.
Hut it is only for an instant, and she
shudders violently as his touch meets
hers. Her eyes are on the ground,

In the meantime, Sir Adrian, having
made his way to Florence, points to the

asks, in a low tone. "I hardly hoped
for so much. But yeu have not con

' Why need 1 speak ? I have seen you
witli my own eyes. You are safe.
Believe me, Sir Adrian, I congratulate
yrra most sincerly upon your escape.'
Her words are cold, her eyes down
cast. She Is deeply annoyed with lier
sflf for having carried the lily into his
presence here. The very fact of his
having noticed it and spoken to ber
about it has shown her how much im
portance he has attached to her doing
so. What will he think of her. He
will donbtless picture her to himself
sitting weeping and brooding over a
flower given to her by a man who
loves her not, and to whom she has
given her love unsolicited.
Her marked coldness so oppresses
him that he steps back, and does not
venture to address her again. It occurs
to him that she is reserved because of
Presently, Lady Fitz Almonf,
marshaling her forces anew, carries
them all away to their rooms, soundly
rating the sobbing Lady Gertrude for
her want of self-control.
The men too, shortly afterward
disperse, and one by one drift away to
their rooms. Captain Ringwood and

asks the latter musingly, drumming
his fingers Idly on a table near him.

replies Ringwood quietly.
"It would have meant a very good
thing for Arthur if the shot had taken
effect," says Ringwood, eyeing his com

rejoins the surgeon shortly.

The most familiar poison is probably
morphia, or some slmiliar narcotic.
Prussic acid is tbe most rapidly fatal
of all poisons in its action. Chemical
tests can now be applied to detect
with great certainty poison in food or
water, and in the body after death. If
scientific examination and judicial
inquest be possible, almost any poison
can be detected after death, either by
the lessons produced in th organs
affected, or by the extraction from
the corpse of the victim of the poison
Itself, and by etudy of the properties.
As for poisoning being a lost art

Mr. Charles Allen, a medical student
of Leamington, Ont., is just now the
target of a good many jests. A few
days ago he smuggled a human
skeleton across the Detroit river to
Canada. He padded his purchase,
dressed it in woman's clothes with a
stylish hat had a deep blue veil, and,
propping it up in this buggy beside
him, drove on the ferryboat and
crossed to Winsor. The disguise was
so clever that the customs officers did
not give him a second glance, and the

cleverness and forthwith told his
