Rome, Feb. 21. The pealing ol
church belli Sunday announced the
celebration of the pope's episcopal
jubilee. By 4 o'clock the thousands of
pilgrims, tourists and citizens were
crowded before toe doors of St. Peter's.
At 5 o'clock two battalions of infantry
in uniform were drawn up before the
(a hedral so as to be ready to help the
20 r more gendarmes in preserving
on t-r. The crowds swelled suddenly
but remained quite despite the trem.-ti.
duns pessure caused by about 5,000
ticket holders in their hopeless strug
gle to get near the doors.
At 6 o'clock the cathedral doors were
opnied and the foremost of the crowd
swept in. Within half an hour the
great building was packed to the steps,
three thousand pilgrims and 25,000 or
30,01 0 Catholics from this city gained
admission. Not fewer than 40,000 per
sons, many of them ticket holders, were
tuned away by the military, who
cieared,the spaces around the building
o as to prevent disorder when the ser
vices closed, ,
CHEERED THE POPE.
Hie pope entered the cathedral at
9.45 pale but smiling and apparently in
somewhat better health than usual
Ihe cathedral rang with tumultuous
cheering as the pope was borne toward
ihe altar. His holiness officiated at
the special jubilee mass, intoning the
opening words of the Te Deum and
giving Lis blessing in a clear, penetrat
ing voice. The mass lasted until 10:45,
but apparently did not fatigue his
holiness. He remained iu the cathedral
forty-live minutes after the celebration
and then proceeded to his apartments
Ihe crowds dispersed slowly. At
noon most of them had gone and a
quarter of an hour later the military
withdrew. Sunday afternoon the Irish
pilgrims attended service in the church
of St Hylvester and were blessed by
Cardinal Logue. The English pilgrims
at St, Georges received the blessing
from Cardinal vaughan.
The weather has been magnificent all
" day. The air has been mild and try
and the sun has shone uninterruptedly
Sunday evening St Peters and all (be
others churches, all the convents and
private houses were illuminated. The
street were thronged and the square in
front or bt, Peters was almost impassi
. ble. Without eioepUon, however, the
: peeple have been perfectly orderly.
Not an arrest was reported. King
- Humbert and Queen Marguerite tool;
their usual drive through the city and
't everywhere were saluted respectfully.

Gibbons, all the priests attached to
the cathedral, Uev. JIagnine and all
the Sulpician fathers and seminarians
in the seminary of St. Mary of St.
Sulpice, together with an immense
; congregation united in the cathedral
on the service of solemn high mass,
the occasion being to unite with the
holy father himself in Home, in the
celebration of his elevation to episco
pate, fifty years ago . Cardinal Gibbons
preached the sermon, dwelling prin
' cipally upon the supremacy of the
pope. " ' -

sphere in the hierarchy of the church.
The history of the United States with
the presidents left out would be more
intelligible than the history of the
church to the exclusion of the vicar ol
Cnrist. This supremacy of the pope
it may he objected, has been denied.

St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 21. Benjamin
Brazellet a St Louis man, has invented
a process of steel making, that it is
claimed far eclipses the discovery of
Bessemer and will so reduce the cost
of steel rails that they can by its use
be sold at a good profit for one -half the

; ByBfazell's process, it Is asserted that
pig iron or steel can be made direct
from ore with gas fuel and it is claimed
that by the process the best Bessemer
pig iron can be made for less that 910
and steel in uie uiuett tor 812.60 per
ton. Bessemer received $1,000,000 on
the American rights of his patent, the

.Nev Okleans, Feb. 25, The
fuuderal of General P. G. T. .Beaure
gard ranked with that (of Jefferson
Davis for the magnificence of display
and the number of participants and
central evidences of mourning. Tiie
ooo sof the city hall were uotcks ii
during the night and the chamber of
mourning was never without visitors.
From dawn till the hour of the funeral
ninny thousand people passed by the
o:er and viewed Ihe body. The flora!
o urinjs were numerous. Arclbehop
Janssens detailed a dozen priests in
cluding Vicar-General liodearts, to
conduct the services, while father
Garesche, of t lie Jesuits, delivered a
brief but eloquent eulogy. The hon
orary pall-bearers were ollicials of the
city and state, judges, leading journal
ists and many prominent citizens.
The body was borne down the stairs
of the city hall by a detachment of the
Louisiana field artillery and the casket
placed upon a caisson and warpped in
the American flag. The militia beaded
the funeral column, under command of
General Borland, every company in
the city turning out its full quota of
men. The veteran associations fol
lowed, and then came the inua eso
the confederate soldiers' home in
wagonettes. The caisson, guarded by
mounted artillery, followed, and then
came a line of carriages several miles
long.
The various exchanges were closed,
business practically suspended md an
immense concourse lined the streets
to do honor to the dead. Although
tiie procession moved promptly and
made no halt, it took nearly two hours
lo reach the cemetery, and the remains
were laid away in the tomb of the
Army of the Tennessee at Metalrie. A
brief religious ceremony was held at
the grave, a company of veterans ol
war artillery, commanded bv Cantain
Frank McElroy, fired three volleys over
the grave, the Louisiana Geld artillery
tired three guns, the buglers sounded
taps and the family was left alone
with the dead.
Camp Henry St Paul, of the veteran
organizations, has aire id y bsgun a
movement looking to the erection of a
Beauregard monument and has drafted
a charter for a monument. From ex
pressions made yesterday there is little
doubt but that the project will meot

A CI.l'E.
Iwo days had passed ly since the
lanure oi tno hank and tno oceurranee
of attendant unfortunate disaster. and
Arnold Dacre still lingered at Ridjre
field. Defiant, self assured, and craven, tear
ful by turns, he had lived through
those forty-eight hours with the lament
ing dread of a man hovering over a pow
der miue, watching the course of events,
hoping for developments that would
show the cards running bis way, and
wondering what the end would to.
So far as the tank itself was con
cerned, the law very speedily acted. The
books showed accuracy and system, its
managemet, entire honesty. To all
seeming, dead Abel Merwyn ha J specu
lated rashly, had blindfolded his subor
dinates to tbe facls and when the crash
came had lett them to face ihe crisis.
There were some diserepencies in the
accounts that needed explaining, Lut
the old clerk John Wharton, w ho kept
the books ol the concern, was not called
on to elucidate them. So violent had he
become, that ho had to bo forcibly re
strained, and the evening before he was
confined in the county asylum, a hope
less, mental wreck.
Arnold Dacre had sought a score of
interviews with him, liau sei.i'd upon
numerous pretences to linger near him,
to question him. In a half lucid moment
he had caught the narno "Cupples" from
Wharton's lips, mixed with some unin
telligible jargon concerning the pack
age. If clue it was, it was a frail one,
but Dacre resolved to trace It down.
Of Flora Merwyn and her rescuer, not
a word or a traco had Dacre gleaned.
Hirbegan to believe that the convict had
tied the country witb the woman he
loved. To openly Tattle Dacre meant
recapture, and he would scarcely risk
that, and. In this way of thinking, Dacre
at the end of two days, decided that it
would be safe to remain at Kidgc.lield,
and prosecuto his search for ihe precious
missing package.
The dead banker had been burled.
All Rldgefield was talking about ihe
strange disappearance of Klnra, and i he
old housekeeper was fairly frantic, about j
ber. Dacre ventured no theory or ex- i
planation, but when the Intelligence was
brought to the little village that K.'iv
Webster had escaped from the peniten
tiary, It was generally decided that flora
had heartlessly abandoned her dcni
father, and, with what money she could i
find, had joined her lover, and lied losome j
distant land. When it was learned i
later that her personal fortune in the I
city had been withdrawn from invest- j
ment the wcck- previously, people be-

more readily than ever. 1
It was just at dusk the evening after
tbe departure of his tool and ally for the
insane asylum, that Arnold Dacre pre
sented himself at the door of Wharlou's
former loditings.
"Have you the key Of Wharton's
room," he asked ol the landlady.
"Yes, sir," she replied.
"I thought so. Will yon please lot me
have them?"
"He has left nothing there." -
Dacre knew this. lie himself had su
perintended the packing of the trunk of
his unfortunate victim, in a vaio search
for tbe missing package.
"That is true," he vouchsafed, "but I
am In hopes of finding some trace of cer
tain papers belonging to the bank secreted
about the room. The keys, please."
Once in the room Dacre began a per
sistent and a thorough quest. Some
where tho package had been secreted.
Where? He tore up the carpet, he
delved in the grate, he ripped open the
bedding, he explored every nook and cor
ner of that many-cornered room.
"It's no use!" he groaned, sinking to a
chair, and mopping his dripping brow
desolately. "Wbat can he havo done
with it, for certainly it is not here?''
Tap tap tap!
Faint, spasmodic, the startling sum
mons fell on the door. Dacre walked
to It .
"Who Is there?" '
"Mr. Wharton, please let me in!"
panted a weak, a wavering voice.
"Who is It?" demanded Dacre, still
bent on parleying with a possible in
truder. "Cupples Tom Cupples. Oh! it's
come again help bel "
The voice died away suddenly. Arnold
Dacre started as from an electric shock.
Cupples! that was the name John
Wharton had employed in bis incoherent
ravings, and In connection with the miss
ing package, too.
Dacre had sought for the man, had
learned of his fidelity to the old clerk,
and cf his mysterious disappearance.
These facts, taken in connection with
his strange disappearance, his evident
ignorance of the absence of Wharton.
smacked of suspicion. With fateful
auguries at soul, Arnold Dacre ouicklv
opened the door.
"Come in."
A huddled mass lying across the thres
hold looked up at him witb pleading
eyes. , .. .
"Why! what's the matter here?" de
manded Dacre, harshly.
"Help mo the words were a scarcely
audible Jumble.
"Help you! are you hurt?"
lint the man, sinking back more heln-
lessly than ever, was silent Dacre es

A blank, despairing expression crossed
the haggard face.
"He Is sick he has teen removed to a

Dacre.
"Then send send "
"Goon!" urged Dacre, eager to learn
the cause of tho man's anxiety.
"For Mr. Arnold Da ere."
"Why!" exclaimed tho cashier, "that's

Tom Cupples looked relieved. He had
never seen Dacre before, but he accepted
his statement as true.
"Mr. Whartou told me told me," he
panted, "to see you if anything any
thing happened to him."
"Yes! yes!" murmured Dacro eagerly.
"He told mo to hide hide It He told
nie to tell you to give you "
A paroxysm of weakness caused Cup
ples to falter, but Arnold Dacre, in the
intensity of bis emotion, fairly galvanized
bim into new life with the magnetic
power ot his vehemence.
"To give me what?'" lie demanded.
"Speak, man!"
The answer came with difficulty, bat
it t-ame, bringing to the face of the arch
plotter a wild, eager glow, that nide
his sinister, avaricious eyes sparkle
brighter than ever.
"The-package!" gasped the prostrate
man.

"The package?" cried Arnold Dacre,
his wholo being rising with exultation,
hope, and suspense.
Tom Cupples nodded and easped. Then
he faintly articulated.
"It was a manilla paper package, Mr.
Wharton gave it to me Tuesday night"
"It is the same!" cried Dacre, trans
formed with excitement and expectancy.
"Quick, man! you have it? give it to mc.
It is mine."
Cupples shook his head slowly, as if to
indicate some negation to the rapid
queries of his interlocutor. Ho tried to
eak and sank back, the sound gurgling
In his throat spasmodically.
"Speak, I toll yon!" ordered Dacre
fiercely, amid his eagerness, losing sinlit
of the man's weak and helpless con
dition, "lie told you to give me the
package. You havo It! No?"
The nodding head movii.g nervously
from side to sido tried to answer him.
"Then you know where it Is?'
Oh! the plotting heart took hope, for

"Where Is it?''
Cupples made amotion for more water.

( tone.
- "Yes, yes! brace up! don't' weaken!
and you hid it?"
"Yes."
"Where?"
"Too long to toll you I haven't the
the strenirth. Far away. . I thought ho
so ordered it safe place,."
These sentences wore spoken in dis
jointed gasps. Upon the utterance of
each, tho baleful plotter hung as if his
life depended upon their significance.
"Coming back I had a stroke. Hurry
excitement did It. I never thought
to gel home I met a charcoal burner
near near Deepford. Ho wrote tho
details of tho hiding-place. I feared I
would forget."
"Wrote It?" stormed Dacre, with sud

"Xo. - Does not know what is hidden.

Arnold Dacre sprang to tho table for
the glass. Before te regained the side
of tho prostrate man, however, with a
violent convulsion, the latter sank back
sonseless.
"He's gone or going!" muttered the
schemer hoarsely. "Oh! will the paper
tell. Yes. Yes. it is here it is here,

From tho man's inside coat pocket, he
drew forth a paper. It was creased and

Is there somotrap In this?" he ground

too sincere. Who are vou?"
He sprang suddenly to the door and
opened it . Upon its threshold stood a
stranger. He was a peculiar-looking
man, dressed in home-spun, wearing blue
spectacles, and with a face as tawny as
that of an Indian.
"What do you want?" demanded Dacre,
scowling suspiciously.
The stranger regarded him fixedly and
unabashed. -

TO HE CONTINUED.
The Three Golden Balls.
The London Quarterly lieview dis
cusses at length the history of "pawn-
broking" in F.uglaiid. The reviewer
starts out with tho proposition that
" the inconvenience and amazement
which would fall upon the city of Lon
don were a morning to come which
brought no newspapers with it," would
lie indefinitely increased if the "pawn
brokers' shops" were to be suddenly sup
pressed. If the newspapers were sup
pressed, those most annoyed would bo
chiefly the "easy classes," while, if the
pawnbrokers were to disappear, dis
tress would follow, which words would
be almost powerless to describe. "Tak
ing what constitutes the inner ring of
London, with a population of about
3,500,000, it is known," says the writer,
"that on an average twenty articles per
head are pledged with pawnbrokers in
the course of a year. Now out of these
.3,500,000 there must at least be 2,000,
000 persons belonging to fumil;."s no
member of which ever enters a pawn
broker's shop. In that case 30,000,000
of pledges are deposited yearly by, or
on behalf of 1,500,000 of, people, who,
cut up into families at the Registrar
General's rate of five to a family, would
represent 300,000 households. Thus
we nve forced to the conclusion that
each of 300,000 metropolitan families is
constrained by dire necessity to resort
to the pawnbroker 100 linos in the
course of the year." There are G13
pawnbrokers in London, and the writer
does not hesitate to declare that tlioro
would bo "revolution, prompted by
popular indignation, if pawnbrokers
were arbitrarily abolished," and that,
I Mere they abolished bv "agencies be
yond human control, popular despair"
would follow, hence the conclusion that
while London might get along without
revolution, were its newspapers sup
pressed, calamities of the gravest char
neter would result if the pawnbrokers
were driven out of the great metropolis,
and Mich a result is made the more
prouauio oy t tie lact that a vast pro
portion ol the population of London
"cannot keep fire in the grate, a candle
or lamp burning on tho table ot night
or the wolf away from the door, without
pledging some humble and often neces
sary articlo with tho pawnbroker at
least once and sometimes twice or more
every week." -
Slant; Words and Phrases,
Just listen for a moment to our fast
young man, or the ape of a fast jounn,
man, who thinks that to be a man he
must speak in the dark phraseology oi
slang. If he does anything on his own
rcspoiiFibility, lie does it ou his own
"hook." If he sees anything remnrka
bly good he calls it a "stunner;" the
superlative of which is a "regular stun
per." If a man is requested to pav a
tavern bill, he is asked if lie will "stand
ham. : If he meets a savage-looking
dog lio calls bim an "ugly customer."
If he. meets an eccentric man, he call)
him a "rummy old cove." A sensible
man is a "chap that is .np to snuff."
Our young friend never scolds, but
"blows up;" never pays, but "stumps
up;" .never finds it difficult to pay, but
is "hard up;" never feels fatigued, but
is "used up." He has no bat, but shel
ters his heal beneath a "tile." He
wears no neckcloth, but surrounds his
throat with a "choker." He lives no
where, but there is some place whero
ho "hangs out." He never goes any
where or withdraws, but he "bolts"
he "slopes" he "mizzles" he "makes
himself scarce" he "walks his chalks"
he "makes his tracks" he "cuts his
stick" or is "fired out " The highest
compliment you con pay him is to tell
him that he is a "regular brick." He
does not profess to be brave, but ho
prides himself on being "plucky."
Money is a word which he has forgot
ten, but he talks a good deal about
"tin," and "the needful," "the rhino,"
and "the ready." When a man speaks
he "spouts;" when he holds his peace
he "shuts up;" when ho is humiliated,
he is "taken down peg or two," and
"made to sing small."
What (he Millennium Will be Like.
Rev. J. Hemphill, of San Francisco,
could not help but believe thot the ad
vent and personal reign of Christ would
bo after the millennium. During tho
millennium, lie thought, the physical
conditions of the world would be im
proved. Sin being removed, pain and
travail would be done away with. Tho
physical conditions of man would bo
vastly improved, and there would exist
no pain, sorrow nor tears, such as are
ours now. When that time comes men
