Out In the street, this winter's day,
A brawny man is shoveling snow;
Steadily there he works away
With mucular arms and face aglow,
Glad to earn a pittance for pay, ' t ;
Shoveling oir the snow. " '"

And the rich, hot blood of perfect health
Coursing through bodyaud limb.
Now, across tho street from thoshovclnr
A stately mansion, built of stone,
And there, in the wlndow.with folded hands
A pale-faced man looks out alone
Looks out at tho laborer over the way,
At the t now his shovel has thrown.

And he thinks: "Could I live like that at

my life I can share with no one. Let
mc go my way and you yours, for we
could never be happy with a cloud of
mystery between us."
iln other words, you refuse me!"
There was a quick resentment in Al
fred Graves's tories.for the refusal of the
woman he loved to bo his wife was a
blow at once to his heart and His rap fly.
He was not a conceited man, but when;
he offered his hand to his sister's gov
erness he certainly did not expect a re-,
fusal. There had been manymeetings!
before he spoke, and in some of them he
had thought-Hester Strotton'a face be
tfayed her love for him, in spite of the
cold manner that was habitual to her.
Scarcely a man to measure his own
merits by the length of his purse, Al
fred Graves could not quite forget that
he was owner of a fine" estate in the
country, several houses in town and five
thousand a year, while Hester Stretton
was his sister's governess. She had
come to Mrs. Evans from a female sem?
inyy, with letters of introduction; -had
proved herself trustworthy with the chil
dren;, and no one had any desire to pry
into her private affairs during the wholo
of the hrst two years.
Mrs." Evans considered her a treasure
and the children were much attached to
her and progressed rapidiy.
Then Alfred came back from abroad,
and his sister, offering him the hospital
ity of her house at GuilSford, suddenly
made several discoveries. First,shc
loajaa one mac aitnougn tne family had
thought and spoken of her brother as an

The pld, old. story progressed, day af
cr day, and she could find nr.good rea
Ijason for sending "Hester away, and
surely Alfred was not to be 'turned away
from her house. Mrs. Evans was con

could a pradent lister do more?
It was some comfort that the "infat
uation"' m Mrs. Evans mentally ttern.
ed it, was all on one side; that the 'pale
face never flushed at his coming or the
soft, dark orbs wooed him to her side.
But Mrs. Evans could not believe it pos -
fortune to any woman, and: be rejected.
So she fretted secretly, while Alfred
wooed patiently,vtillson, the summer
morning when he found Hester in the.

tendance of a juvenile Evans, and made
his declaration in explicit terms.
And without one flush on her white

"In other word.f j-ou refuse me," he

was a thrill in her voice as she -aaid,

and share your. wealth, for mylifef
drudgery is a wearburden to me3But
I love j'ou, and so I bid you go from me
and seek to forget me in a , happier
smile." $ Sx.
Something in her tone and face awed
her lover from- any demonstration of
pleasure at her frank confession. He
prisoned the little white hand she had
placed upon his arm and said: "Con
fide in me, then. Teli me your secret,
or, if you will, keep, it, and rest assured,
I will never try to surprise it."
"I can not. Nothing but death can
free me, and your life is too useful, too
noble, to be spent in waiting for me.
Forget me, Alfred."
She was. gone before he conld say
more, and ho knew hor decision was
final. Mrs. Evans's delight at her
brother's escape was certainly temper
ed by indignation that Hester had'dared

but the routine of duty filled each day,
and there was a certainty, soon ' of re

October was midway on her golden
tinted journey across the earth when
Mrs. Evans was called upon to find a
new governess. In vain she scolded
and even wept. Hoster gave no reason,
but she must go.
It was not to spy upon her movements
that Alfred, finding the governess leav
ing the house, followed her in tho train
that took her to London. It was only
in his deep, unshaken affection, the fear
for her future, ihetanxittji? tojjcsuro all
was to be well with her inlier new life.
She did not dream she was watched
as she took a cab and, followed still,

had long been satisfied, from his exper
iments, that if he could d'vise a " cut
off," the means of neutralizing the at
tractive power of a stationary magnet
on another raised above it and adjusted
on a pivot, unlike poles opposite, and
so arrange this cut-off as to work au
tomatically, ho could produco motion
in a balanced magnet.. TOjihia end. he
persistently experimented and it was
only about four years ago that he made
the discovery, the key to his problem,
which is the basis of his present motor,
and upsets our philosophy. In expert
menting ono day with a piece of soft
iron upon a magnet ho made the dis
covery of the neutralise and the change
of polarity, not then recognizing its sig
nificance, being absorbed entirely by
the discovery of the neutral lino opened
up to him. Here was tfie point for his cut
off. Fpr.a while he experimented entire
ly With batteriesbut in September, 187-1,
he succeeded in obtaining a movement
independent of the battery. In June,
the following year, Mr. Gary exhibited
this contiguous fmdrmncntft a namber
of gentlemen, prWctinjjuri3eli by
covering ttic cut-off with copper so as to
disguise tho real material used, and
prevent any ono from robbing him ol
his discovery. The publication in the
local newspapers of the performance of
the little machine, which was copied far
and wide, excited much interest. But
the inventor was by no means satisfied.
He, had siKxddfsc caring a eoatiuu
0U3 motion but not a practical motor.
Ho had invented a unique plaything
but not a machine that would dp man's
work. So ho made further experiments
in one direction and another, using for
a long time the battery; and it was not 1
until after ho moved to Boston (which
was about two years ago) .that he was
convinced that the points in the
change of polarity, with which he was
so little impressed when he r first hit
upon them along with his, discovery of
the neutral line, were tho true ones to
work upon. Thereafter, his progress
was most rapid, and in a little while he
had constructed working models, not
only to his own satisfaction, but to that
of those experts who had .the fairness
to give a critical and thorough
examination, clearly demonstrat
ing hi" ability to secure mo
tion and power, as they had never
before been secured, from self-feeding
and self-acting machines. His claim.as
he formally puts it, is this : " I have dis
covered that a straight piece of iron
placed across tho poles of a magnet,ahd
near to their end, changes its polarity
while in the magnetic field and before it
comes in contact with' the msnet,:the
fact being, however, that actual contact
is guarded against. The conditions are
that the thickness of the iron must be
proportioned to tbqpower of the mag
net aad-thattbe neutral lincorline ol
change inv the polarity of the iron, is
nearer or more distant from the magnet
according to the power of the latter and
the thickness of the former. My whole
discovery is based upon this change of
polarity in the iron with or without a
battery." Power can be increased to
any extent, or diminished, by the addi
tion or withdrawal of magnets.
Mr. Gary is forty-one years old, hav
ing been born, in 183.7. During the
years devoted to wotkiof; out hisvproh-;
leni he has sustained himself by the pro
ceeds from the sale of a few useful in

Then there was a pause, and it appear
ed as if the crowd wcro pretty well dis
armed ; at least, if there were any more
pistols in the house their owners did
not seem disposed to give them np.
5 "Gentlemen," resumed tho Judge,
hero are 19 persons who have acted like
men in this business, but the man I saw
with tho pistol has not come up yet,
and now," continued he, pulling
out his watch and looking toward the
far side of tho Court-houso, "I will
give him one minute toaccccpt my prop
osition, and if ho does not do it in that
tirao, I will point him out to the Sheriff
and order him to take him into cus
tody." Immediately two men from the back
part of tho house began to move toward
the Judge's stand. Once they stopped
and looked at each other, aadthen, com
ing slowly forward, laid down their pis
tols and. their dollars. As they turned
to leave, the Judge said: "This man
with the black whiskers is the one I saw
with the pUtol."
Then Judge Lester gave a short lec
ture upon the cowardly, foolish and
wicked habit of carrying concealed
weapons, and assured his audience that
n the future the law would be strictly
enforced. Tho Court proceeded with
its regular business, and it is needless to
add that in that county the habit of car
rying pistols was broken up.
The Chowchilla Bangers are a law
and order society composed of wealthy
landowners in Mariposa County, Cal.,
who seem to mean business abont as se
riously as any organization of that char
acter in the country. A man named
Ross having chosen imprisonment for
life as his punishment, the Sheriff of the
county, fearing an attempt to lynch the
prisoner, secretly led him out of tho
Court-house by a rear passage, hand
cuffed him to 'a powerful horse, and
mounting an equally good animal him
self, started off with him on a gallop
over a road covered with six feet of
snow A half hour later the Chowchil-1
las were on their track. They gained
on them until within a shootiag dis
tance, and then began firing. A turn
in the mountain alone saved the fugi
tives. Reaching a town, the Sheriff
changed horses, and was barely eff
again with his prisoner before the Ran
gers arrived. They, too, changed
horses, and kept up the pursuit until
the prisoner was safely lodged in a se
cure jail in Merced. So determined
were the Chowchiilas in their pursuit,
and soifully resolved to face any result,
that many of them made their wills be
fore setting onton. thechise.
