Jeuloua gleam in Mr. Clifford' eje
waiuetl him against embarking on lic
tioii. For Lilian to Iw jealous was some
thing new. Hitherto any feelingH of
the kind bail all been ou his side. Th.?
mail who marries a young lady from
the Frivolity 'i'heiiier has to keep an
eye ou her. and the Colonel bad taken
gi.d fare that since their marriage she
should have little other soeicty beside
his own. That she should venture to
have any suspicious of him, however,
w as outrageous.
He took shelter from her wrath uu
tb r a mean subterfuge.
"Young lady?" he echoed with Well
felgiied astonishment, " ho said any
thing aluiut a young lady?"
"What absolute nonsense. You must
be dreaming, darling."
Lilian's eyes opened wide.
"Oh, I am dreaming, am I?" ho
drawled. "I shouldn't tell lies if I were
The taunt stung the Colonel to fury
and enraged him none the le. s because
it was merited.
He drew himself up to his full height
and then suddenly turning on his heel
he marched out of the room, slamming
the. door behind him.
"All right," she failed out after his
retreating figure, "you needn't show
your temper like that. I hail made up
my mind not to go to Ionl .Montague's
dnuce to-night, but I shall now." And
she flopped herself down ou a chair and
knocked the top off au egg witli rather
Since the day of her marriage she had
reluctantly denied herself every form
of dissipation, but Lord Montague had
been one of her oldest friends, and she
had set her heart ou going to his bull.
1 he Colonel's back went up at once
when she proposed accepting the Invi
tation, and there had been a consider-
,.i.le scene the night before, and, al
though Lilian hud carried the day
she repented during the evening, and
she really had Intended to tell him so
the first thing In the morning.
The Colonel's bad temper, however.
had put the matter on a different foot
ing. He had been jealous of her, and
now she was Jealous of him and meant
to give him a lesson. Who was this
mysterious girl who was not to try her
husband's patience any more?
That night, true to her word, Mrs.
Clifford ordered the carriage and drove
to Lord Montague's country house,
which stood between theirs uud the sea.
She danced almost the whole even
ing with her host, entirely Indifferent
to the glances which were thrown at
them from different quarters of Ihe
room, and making fun over the whis
pered comments which now and then
reached their ears. There w as nothing
she hoped for more than that some
scandal-monger would report her be
havior to the Colonel.
Her husband's Inflammable nature,
however, required no other spark than
his own suspicions afforded to set him
ablaze, and his passion was fanned by
the recollection of his discomfiture
In the. breakfast-room that morning.
He passed the night shut? up iu the
library and suffering torments. He
could see nothing but the vision of a
pretty woman with flushed cheeks and
glistening shoulders, being whirled
about by a handsome guardsman, to
whom she yielded her slim waist with
And by the time the dim gray light
of morning crept In through the Vene
tian shutters he was hopelessly, fath
omlessly Intoxicated with Jealousy,
and wild to he revenged on someone.
The whole of the next day he stu
diously avoided his wife, and they
scrambled through lunch to their mu
tual relief without a word on either
It was during the course of the after
noon that the Colonel coming down
stairs with his hat on and a stick under
his arm, caught sight of a letter lylug
on the hall table. He glanced at It
carelessly In passing, and then, seeing
It was addressed to his wife In an uu
known hand, he picked It up and exam
ined It critically-
"So," he muttered to himself, "It has
come to this, has It? All right, my line
lady," and, thrusting the letter uncere
moniously Into his pocket, he vanished
through the front door,
Ten minutes later, comfortably seat
ed behind a ledge, he brought It out and

The man touched his hat respect fully.

QUEER FISH IN REALITY.
Look Like a lln and It Flettfct
Looks Like I'ork.
One of the most jM-euliur specimens
of the finny tribe that has even been
hooked in this section of the country
was brought to the New Orleans Timen
riemocrat office the other evening by
William Markel, of 71) Dufossat street,
and It. Oogrleve, of 2(K Broadway.
They caught this curiosity at the Uig
olets. and every fisherman who saw it
was puzzled at it. None like it has ever
lxen seen here before, it Is claimed,
but one old sailor says that he saw one
in a distant sea nineteen years ago and
that it was called the hogflsh. The
head of the fish strongly resembles a
hog, and the flesh looks like pork. There
are three tail fins, but they are unlike
those of the ordinary fish. The front
part of the curiosity is deep blue in
color and the rear is a bright yellow.
These colors are so pronounced that at
first sight they appear to have lieen put
on with a brush. When it was caught
there were several other hues, but
these disappeared, and the blue and
vellow were fading when it was
brought to the Times-Democrat office.
Mr. Markel said that the fish was
swimming on Its side, like a. flounder,
In the reeds nearly half a mile from
the bridge when he saw it. It would
not bite the bait, but nibbled at it, so
he was compelled to hook it by a sud
den jerk of the line. When the gentle
men left the ollice they expressed their
intention of having it frozen In a block
of ice and exhibiting it in front of tho

In about half an hour's time he
reached the town, still half mad with
Jealousy, and already picturing IiLiit
self as the plaintiff in a divorce case
and addressing the court with the elo
quence of nn injured husband.
Half way down the High street he
spied a constable and hailed him vig
orously. "Where's Hanam's place, can you tell
me?" he called out.
"I expect it's shut by this time, sir."
"What d'ye think I care if It is.
Where Is It?" he shouted back, beside
himself with passion. "Let me get
him, that's all, and see If I don't wrinj,'
his neck, confound him."
The policeman laughed good-naturedly.
"It's down there on the left, sir," he
said, and, without waiting to thank his
informant, the Colonel put spurs to his
horse and dashed on.
He found the place without much dif
ficulty. "A hairdresser's, by Jove," he mut
tered, as he pulled tip In front of the
shop which liore above the door in
gold letters the legend:
"HANAM, TONSOUIAL ARTIST."
He dismounted, more perplexed than
ever, and beat vigorously on the door,
while the horse, finding herself left to
her own devices, quietly sauntered
down the street In the direction where
the Cliffords usually put up their car
riages. For some time the Irate Colonel ham
mered away unheeded.
At last, however, there were foot
steps on the other side of the door, and
a trembling voice Inquired what he
"Open at once," yelled the Colonel,
beginning again with his fists; "If you
don't, I'll lire the house."
"Fire the house! Heaven have mercy
on us all! Fire! Fire!"
A window was thrown open and a
woman's voice sounded out In a terri
fied wall; tho cry was taken up from
house to house, and. In nn Instant, the
whole town was astir.
Farther and farther through the de
serted streets the shout was echoed,
and slippered and trousered citizens be
gan to pour from their houses and
crowd about (he Colonel, still raining
blows on the hairdresser's door.
Then the church bells began to ring,
the fire engines came, the crowd sot

was wanting for a first-class conflagra

Perhaps the gentleman whom he had

doing so, but finally he was able to
combine them into this sentence:

The strength required of an average-
sized team of horses, says a writer in
Our Dumb Animals, and tne strain on
the horses to draw a heavy load over
stones or out of a deep rut, hole, or over
many other avoidable obstacles, is oft
en greater than to draw the same load
over a smooth surface fifty yards.
It would be a small estimate to say a
careless driver strains his team in that
manner twenty times a day.
If a driver prevents straining hla
horses twenty times each day he will
