Helen T. Clarke, in IJ'idc-.lir ;&
She was dead. An old woman with
silvery hair, brushed smoothly away
iroui her wrinkled forehead, and snowy
vap tied under lier chin; a sad, quiet
faee; a patient mouth, with lines that
told of sorrow home with gentle firm
ness; and two 'withered, tired hands,
crossed. That was all.
Who, looking at the sleeping form,
would think of love and romance, of a
heart only just iicalcd of a wound re
ceived long, long years ago.
Kilty 3'ears shehad lived under that
roof, a larmer s wife. Jf you look on

was only twenty when John Thill ips
brought, her home a bride.
A half century she had kept her care
ful watch over her dairy and larder, had
made butter and cheese and looked
after the innumerable duties that fall-to
the share of a farmer's wife. And John
had never gone with buttonless shirts
and tmdurncd socks; had not come
home to an untidy house and scolding
But underneath her quiet exterior
there was a story that John never
dreamed of. She did not marry for
love. When she was nineteen, a rosy.
happy girl, a stranger came on a visit
to their village, and that summer was
the brightest she ever knew. Paul
(Jardner was the strangers name: he
was an artist, and fell in love with the
simple village g rl and won her heart;
and when -he went away in the autumn
they were betrothed.
"I come again in the spring," he

:i kiss on her quivering lips he went
Springtime came, and true to his
word Paul returned; he stayed only a
day or two this time.
" 1 am go'ng away in a few weeks to
Italy to studv," ho said.
They renewed their vows and parted
with tears and tender, loving words; he
put a tiny ring upon her tinner, and cut
a litt'c curly tress from her brown hair;
and telling her always to be true, he
The months went by, and Mattie was
trying to make the time seem short by
studying to improve herself so that she
might be worthy of her lover when he
should come back to make her his wife.
One day she glanced over a newspa-
rer; her eves were attracted by his
name, and with white lips and dilated
eyes She reail of his marriage to an
other. "Married! Taken another bride in
stead of coming back to marr3 me! Oh.
Paul! Paul! I loved and trusted you for
She covered her face with her hands
and wept bitterly. An hour afterwards,
as she sat there in the twilight, she
heard a stepson the gravel walk, and,
looking up, saw John Phillips coming up
the steps. He had been to see her
often before, but had never yet spoken
of love, and had received no encourage
ment to do so. He was a plain, hard
working farmer, with no romance about
him, but matter-of-fact to the core.
His wife would get few caresses or ten
der words. He would be kind enough
give her plenty" to eat and wear.
Now he seemed to have come for the
the express purpose of asking her to be
his wile; for he took a chair beside her,
and after the usual greeting, reserving
scarcely a moment to take breath in,
bcgan.'in his business-like way. There
was no confession of love, no pleading,
no hand-clasping, no tender glances;
he simply wanted her; would she be

"What can! do? Hc'doesn't ask me
to love him. If I mam him I can be a
true wife to him. 'and nobody will know
that Paul nas jilted mc."
The decision was made. Her checks
were ashy pale as she looked up into
Ills eves aim answered, quietly: "Yes,
1 will be youc wife."
Her parents were pleased that she
was chosen by so well-to-do a 3oung
man; so it was settled, and .they were
married the same summer. People
thought that she sobered down wonder
fully; more than that, nothing was said
that would lead any one to suppose that
any change had taken place. "
Yes, she had sobered down. She
dared not think of Paul. There was do
hope ahead. Life was a time to be
filled with something so that she might
not think of herself. John was alwa3s
kind, bat she got so wearied of his tslk
of stock and crops, and said to herself:
"I must work harder, plan nnd fuss and
bustle about as other women do, so that
I may forget and grow like John."
Two years went by. A baby slept in
the cradle and Martha nobody called
her Mattie but Paul sat rocking with
her foot as she knitted a blue woolen
"stocking for the baby's father. There
was a knock at the half-open door.

"Are you telling the truth?" she
asked, in an eager, huky whisper.
And then, as he replied "It is true,"
hhe gave a low groan and sank down
into a chair.
"Oh, Paul, forgive me! I didn't
know 3'ou had a cousin by the same
name. I ought not to have doubted
3'ou, but 'twas there in black and white

With bitter tears, she told him how

-Association recently on "Physical
Education." "I want," said he. "to
see if in an informal talk wo can't hit
upon some way in which we can bring
the pliysical education of children down
to a practical basis. Our children who
are healthy and buxom when thev be

quire the children under yon to sit far
back on a chair and to hold their chins
up 3ou will cure them of being ronnd
shouldered, and the lungs and other
vital organs will have free and healthy
plav'. Another simple plan is to have
the" children bend over backwards until
they can. see the ceiling. This exer

Jncookcd Pork D.tngcroii
Raw salt pork with a little vinegar
and pepper has long been a favorite
dish in many a farmer's family in the
Northern States during the cold winter
months. Hunters, trappers, lumber
men and woodchoppcrs also make use
of slices of raw pork to make a sand
wich for luncheon, and not a few per
sons who read this will remember the
time when slices c.f cold raw pork and
a piece of bread helped to till an empty
stomach on a winter day in the back
woods. Whether 3113 of the thousands
of persons who have partaken of such
food in times past were injured b3 it
will probabhy never be known, but we
know that there are numbers of them
still living, in the enjoyment of good
health and a green old age. But of late
it appears that the minute parasite
known as trichina is found more fre
quent in pork than formerly; though
whether this is due to the increase in
number of investigators, and their vigi
lance in searching for such objects of
natural histor, or because tiie parasite
has roalby become more common, it
would be "difficult to determine. The
fact, however, that it is occasionally
found in pork is sufficient ground for
warning consumers of this kind of meat
of their danger.
Trichimc are ver3 minute, varying
from one-eighteenth to one-sixth of an
inch in length, and 3et the3 are the
most dangerous of all the internal par
asites known to infest the human race
The mature worms live in the intes
tines of animals, but the immature, or
what are termod cysts, live in the mus
cles. Thc3' are found in the eucysted
form in the llcsh of hogs and various
other animals, but the3 can only reach
mattirit3', or become fully developed
and reproduce their kind, when the
moat of the animal which thev infest is
eaten b3 another, thereby being set
free b3 (he digestion, or-'dissolvitig'' of
the cysts. From tho stomach llicy
pass into the bowels, where thc3 propa
gate very rapidly, and millions of the
young bore outward ami into the Ilesh
and 'muscles of their victims. The
symptoms arc at lir.st diarrhira, then
violent muscular pains like rheuma
tism, while the worms are boring
through the walls of tho intestines,
anil later fever sets in. After the
worms reach the muscles and become
encysted, the-3' cease to irriiate, which
occurs in six to eight weeks, provided
the person affected lives thattime.
To speak of treatment is not our
province, but prevention is a legitimate
subject for discussion, and cannot be
too stronglv urged upon every farmer
who raises hogs or person who eats
pork. Cleanliness in the hog pen nnd
3ard is the lirst step, and the
second is to avoid allowing hogs
and pigs to catch or eat rats or
mice, which are realh the most proliiic
disseminators of these dangerous para
sites. It is a very common practice
with many farmers to throw all sorts of
offal and tilth into their hog pens, and
if their boys happen to kill or wound a
rat, ho goes among the rest, thereby
endangering the luc of even' person
who nm eat pork raised on the farm.
Rats ona farm should be trapped, and
their bodies burned or buried where no
animal can tind them; but instead of
this they are usually permitted to
harbor about the hog pen, where they
tind plenty of food, and if one gets
cornered a hog will catch and devour
him, trichina; and all. Slaughterhouse
pork is the most dangerous of all, and
it should never be used until subjected
to a' thorough microscopic exanrnation.
Raw or half cooked pork should be
tabooed under all circumstances as
dangerous, and -Cue cooking must be

Some recent experiments of M. Vacher,
of Paris, reported in the Lancet, show
that far more heat is required to kill,
trichina: than has heretofore been sup
posed. Ho affirms that protection
given by cooking is quite illusory, and
that in the thorough cooking of an or
dinary joint of meat the temperature
in the center is not sufficient to insure
the destruction of the parasite. He
took a lc of pork of moderate size
and boiled it thoroughly. A ther
mometer placed within, at a depth of
two inches and a half, registered, after
half an hour s boiling,83 degrees Fahren
heit; after an hour, 118 degrees; after
amhourandcv half, 149 degrees; and.
after two liours and a half, when the
joint was thorough- cooked, 165 de
grees. From this it would appear that
"a temperature equal to that of boiling
water, 212 degrees, was not reached
during the entire time of cooking
the tneat, and only two and a half
inches .irom the Eurface. The center,
of course," would be still less affected,
and the parasites at that point not

liccs. the heat to which the pork is
subject is much greater than in boiling,
and for this reason is much the safest
wav of cooking pork. ThcexpcrimcntJ

In preparing smoked bacon, haras

smoking is thorough and continued
long cnou-rh to enable the creosote or
oil of smoke to reach the very center
of the pieces; ami we may say that
thorough smoking and thorough cook
ing are among the bestand most certain
preventives of trichinosis. While we
do not think there is any cause for
alarm on account of the few cases of
this disease recently reported in this
countrv, or for eschewing the use of
pork on that account, it is just as well
to be on the safe side b3" adopting well
known preventive measures, both in
the care of swine and in the use of their
meat. A'. Y. Sun.

The Up? and Down- of OH Speculator.
The Phila lelphia Times publishes an
interesting letter from Bradford. Pa..
on the vicissitudes of oil operators and
the mania for speculation. It reads
like a page from the history of Califor
nia in the pa!my days of placer mining:
Speculation in the price of oil was tho
next craze, and one that find promi
nence to-da3 Magnificent oil ex
changes were erected in Oil Citv.-TitusJ
ville and Bradford. Here speculation b
indnlged in the price of oil. the oil cer
tificates being the basis. One instance
of how men become rich in this way
occurred in Oil City. Two brothers by
the name of Goettlc, in HC6-7. were
bootblacks around the streets o! tho oi!
towns. They made a good deal of
money for Lots, and saved it. When
they had a few hnndreds saved they
took a tlycr on the market. ThC3 were
Miccessffil, ami doubled. Success still
followed them, and to-day they are
among the wealthiest and mot success
ful speculators in the region. The
magnificent generosity of the oil men
is "well kuo-.vu. A poor and needy
woman has often had thousands of dol
lars raised for her anion a crowd of oil
men, and in a few nrnu'es she was
raised from poverty to opulence They
spend money like water, and no town
in the country will show better-dressed
men ami women than these. The' all.
a'most univorsalU. wear diamonds upon
their shirt bo-onis which in main cacs
the3 are forced to pawn for necessities
before they have become even accus
tomed to them.
When the market is dull ami inactivo
for a few da3S it is noticeable even
Speculation is the life-blood of Oil
City. Bus ness stagnates, men get the
blue-;, and the town is dull, indeed.
But let the market be variable, fortunes
are made and lost, men are excited, tho
streets are alive with oil brokers rush
ing back and forth between banks and
exchanges with certificates, drafts,
checks, and even 11101103' in their hands.
The wives of the brokers crowd to the
exchanges, and file in the visitors'
gallery, watching the operations of
their husbands. Some time ago, in ono
of these exchange, the gallery was
filled to overflowing. The market was
leaping up at the rate of ten cents an
hour. One of the heaviest biivors was
on the wrong side. He saw his fortune
disappearing like a mist, at the rate of
.j-Jo.l.'OO an hour. For six hours this
continued, and he was forced to " l.v
down." as it is called to be announced
a bankruot, in other words. His wife
was a witness of the whole scene. An
hour before the worst came she left tho
exchange, walked into a dty-goo.ls
store, took off' her sealskin sacque, and
sold it. From that place she went to
the jeweler's and disposed of her dia
monds and all her silver. When her
husband returned home disconsolate
and downcast, she met him at the door
dressed in a neat calico wrapper. Ho
had been a clerk be ore fortune smiled
upon him. and she a modest school
teacher. She informed him that she
had discharged a'l the servants,
and they would live as former
ly, she doing" the work. She
handed him .?.),500 as the result of sell
ing her jewelr3', and told him to use it.
J03' and hope beamed in his '3es and
found place in his heart again. Ho
went again to business. In one month
ho had regained his former position,
had redeemed everything his wife had
pledged, and was living as formerly.
Three times within six years was this
man saved in this manner by his wife.
To-day he is one of the most daring and
successful of our speculators. This is
one story. Here h another: A young
man in Franklin wished to marry. He
was well-to-do, had a snug little sum in
the bank, but the speculation mania
caught him. He invested it all in oil.
The market that had been going up for
four days turned the very May he
boughtand in two short hours he" saw
the savings of vcars disappear. It
maddened him. He took to drink, be
came unfit for business, lost his posi
tion, the love and respect of his wife,
for he had married, and gradually
sank, step by step, until he is to-d:i3' a
maudlin bar-room drunkard. Homes
have been ruined, hearts broken, lives
destroyed, men crazed b3' this exciting,
insane' passion that never quits them
until they have lost all the3' possess,
except in a very few cases where they
had the hardihood to fly while their
pockets were full.
This happens about as often as it docs
in the lives of gamblers. These men,
as a rule. lio fast lives, and it is verv
seldom that one with gray hairs is found
How the Ksqtf u:nux Hunt Ducks.
A most novel and interesting method
of bird-catching is practiced during the
spring and early summer, while tho
ducks and geese are molt.ng and una
ble to fiy. The Esquimaux puts his
Icywk that is, his seal-skin canoe on
his head, like an immen-e hat, and re
pairs to the big lake, or tho sea-s:de,
where he has seen the helpless birds
swimming and feeding in the wa!cr.
Here he launches his frail bark, and,
when seited, which is not always ac
complished without a ducking, takes
his duublc-bladcd oar in his hands, and
at once starts in pursuit of the game.
Before him, on his k-'iac't, where he can
seize it at the proper moment, lies his
duck-suear, together with other imple
ments of the chase. Cautiouslv ap
proaching the feather!es3 Hocic. he
sometimes gets quite near before h:s
1re-ence is observed, but even then,
lefore he is within striking distance,
there is a great spluttering in the wa

curious-looking stumps that soon will
wear their plumage and once more do
duty as wings. Some dive below the

a'arm, the hunter dashes forward, feel
ing the necessity for speed rather than
for eaution. He is soon with'n fifteen
or twenty feet of the struggling mass,
and, seizing a curious-looking spear,
with three barbs of une iual length, he
poises it for a moment in the air. and
then hurls it with unerring aim at the
dovoted bird, impaling it with a sharp
ened iron or bone spike-in tho center
of the barbs. The handle of the spear
is of wood, and floats on the surface
of the water, so that the hunter can re
cover his weapon and the game at his
