HOW WE CAUGHT HIM.
The banking house of Shavowcll
Brothers had been victimized by an ex
tensive forgery,- so cleverly planned and
executed that, in detective circle?,
thenTwas but one ooinion as to its
authorship. There was but one hand
skillful enough for such a piece of work
that of Durnford Marwick, a most ac
complished rascal, whoso craft and cun

long career of roguery in spite of tho
best laid schemes to trap him. On this
occasion alieavj' reward was o2ered for

opportunity golden in every sense, for
whoever caught Warwick would not
only be a mailo man, but would put a
round sum into his pocket.
While others were beating tho bif-h
in different directions, I resolved to go
on a still-hunt of my own. I had in
formation that Marwick had a set of
associates in a place about a hundred
miles away, with whom, it was not un
likely, be "hail sought and found a hiding-place.
At any rate, it could do no
harm to make a rcconnoissancc in the

I was glad when Mr. Wiggins gave
me a gushing good-day at the next
stopping-place, and left the tra'n.
Another hour brought us to a place
whero ten minutes were allowed for re
freshments. Wo had hardly stopped,
when a boy came hurrying through the
oar inquiring if Mr. Tyke was aboard.
"That's my name," I answered.
"Here's a telegram for you."
I tore it open, as the boy hurried into
the next car as if to deliver another
message. Mine was this:

What to Wear.
Brunettes may wear ambers and all
vellows, browns, maroons, red. olive
green and very dark blue, especially in J
velvet. The.' cannot, as a rue, wear'
light or medium blue, though some who
have brilliancv of complexion can wear
pale blue. Eight gr. ens. grays, pur
ples and all shades of violet must be
avoided by the brunette. However, if
she has black hair, pale, Miiooth skin
and blue or gray eye-i, siie may wear
both reds ami blues in all similes, cream
white and pure white, bluish gray,
black and stone color. If her eyes are
dark, .-he may add amber and aim st

diamonds, tonaz. garnet, coral anil

have chestnut hair, pale, smooth skin
and ha.el ecs iiiu-t not imlu'ge a fan
evfor reds, brilliant yellows or medium
blues. The' may wear purples, all
evasive pale tha-fes of yellows, olive
greens, very dark and very light blue
and creamy white. Corals, turquoises,
and small diamonds set with oth'-r jew
els in dull gold or p'ntinuni, as well as
enameled, moa:c and cameo jewelry,
are permitted to women of this t-pe.
Women of no pronounced type
which class is legion in number usual
ly called plain, because they are not
brilliant, but to offset this are often
endowed with great delicacy of form,
refinement of expression, ami fine eyes,
but thev have dull, ashy-brown hair, and
no brilliancy of complexion. Their eyes
are oftener grayish-blue than brown or
hazel. Red is not becoming to thee
women, and the should not wear fawn
color nor gray. Brown is just as bad.
Black, particularly b'ack velvet; white,
particularly creamy-white woolen
fabrics; water-blue, llush-rosc, black
and white lace; jet, pink, cameo,
delicately enameled jewelry all these
are becoming to such women. They
must avoid tan-colors, grays, bluish
white, pronounced blues, yellows, reds,
and browns. Golden blondes, with ros
complexions, may wear blue-white,
all shades of blue, rose-pink, all shades
of green, yellow, and purple; but, of
all colors, red must be avoided.
Blue-eyed girls who arc not red
haired, and those with greenish-gray
c'es, with prominent transparent cor
neas, can, by wearing a blue dress, or
blue ribbons, or turquoise jewelry, en
hance the blucncss and brilliancy of the
eyes. The "rossas" can never wear
pink, but must conline themselves to
white of a creamy hue, gendarme blue
of a deep tone, invisible or bottle-green,
olive-green, gray-green (never bright
gray), stone-gray, claret, maroon,
plum, amethyst, or brownish purple,
dark amber, reds with an amber tint,
pale yellow, and dark brown. Velvet
is the fabric above all others which
should be freely used in the toilet of the
rossas. Pearls, amber and gold orna
ments arc becoming to them. 'Diamonds
are too ilashv. lhev should dress m
either very dark or very light colors.
Grays, drabs, yellows, bright blue,
bright green, mauve, lilac and ro?c do
not become them. They may w sely
wear black, dark blue, dark violet,
pearl and cream white, water-blue and
the palest tints of Nile-green. By
studying these points, any woman can
soon tell what colors are most becoming
to her, and thereafter w-ar only those
that suit her best, for it is her bbundeu
duty to look as well as nature with a
little assistance on those particular
points will permit. Chicago Tribune.

physician received a call from a man
who carried an alarmed look in the cor

"I think; two or three quinine pills
will brace you up, and I'll give you a

The man mado no further remarks,
but after he had pocketed his prescrip

and shook his fist at the office and

A California paper declares that
the Eastern press has an exaggerated
idea about tho csst of residences of
the railway kings of San Francisco.
As a matter of fact, there is not a
single residence in San Francisco that
cost, ground and all, $1,000,000 or
one-half of it. The most costly man
sion is that of Mrs. Hopkins, nd that
cost, furniture, decorations and all, a
trifle more than 400,000. Governor

so much has been said, cost less than

According to tho latest dispatches
from Constantinople the plague has
broken out with renewed violence at
NcdjefF, in Mesopotamia, or Medschcd
AH ( AIT s grave), as'Mohammcdan's pre
fer to valrthe place. Dr. Scherer, w-ho
has been sent there b the International
Sanitary Commission at Constantinople,
roports that during the week ending
May 2 fifty-six persons died daily out
of a population of about G.OOO. It is
generally supposed that the inundation
of the low lands of the Euphrates Kiver
is the only cause of the outbreak of the
plague, or black death. They are a
contributing, but not tho only cause.
The real cause of the pestilence has
been known for years to the Persian
and Turkish Governments, but they
have done nothing towards its preven
tion. The black death is not an un
common disease in that part of Meso
potamia lying southwest from Bagdad,
between the right shore of the Eu
phrates and the Syrian Desert. It has
made its regular appearance there ever
since the year 1872 between the months
of December and June. In 1878 and
187!) it broke out m the Cities of Hag
dad and H'nlah, ami during the present
3'car it made its lirat appearance in
Dshara, near Nedjeff. In Xedjeff, or
Med-ched Ali, is the grave of Ali, the
son-in-law of the Prophet Mahomet.
From there leads a desert road, marked
out by the bleached bones of camels
and human beings, to the so-called
Lako Euphrates, which receives
its water through the Hintich Canal.
To the northwest of this lake is
situated the City of Kerbela, where is
to be found the golden mosque and the
grave of Hussein, the son o Caliph Ali
and the daughter of the Prophet. -J heo
two cities are tho real breeding-places
of tin dreadful disease. To Nedjeff
and Kerbela the Shiites, or relig otis
followers of Ali and Hussein, chiefly
Persians, send the dead bodies of their
friends and re'atives, because-they be

two felt-covered Collins on each side,
arrive there daily and deposit their

during months of travel from the
Persian highlands has been decompos
ing and is'lilling the air with its pesti
lential odor. The coffins arc placed in
shallow trenches and covered with
about an inch or two of earth. But
this is not all. The whole country
around Nedieff has become one vast
graveyard, and in consequence of the '

The Secret of Success in Business,
The frequenters of Union Square in
New York have been familiar for sev-
for mentioning this establishment. We
are frequently asked by young men
just coming upon tho stage of active
life, young men who have been our
readers, perhaps, since their boyhood,
to explain to them the secret of success
in business. The history of this em
porium would be a very good answer to
their inquiry. The writer of theso lines
has seen it grow fiom a small newspa
per stand down town to its present
stately and magnificent proportions.
Its success, duo to very hard work,
close living, and intelligent thinking,
is a literal illustration of what an old
Boston merchant used to say, half in
jest, to his junior clerks:
" Boys, if ou want to found a per
fectly stupendous business, you must
get a barrel and a board; sell goods on
the board all day, and sleep in the
barrel at night."
The original Brentano very nearly
did this. He sold his goods all day on
a hoard, and came as near sleeping in a
barrel as circumstances allowed. When,
at length, he had got "on so far as to
hire a very small basement store, he
slept under the counter, .and lived on a
few cents a day. In other words, he
fed his business abundantly, but qnly
indulged his own appetite so far as was
i We observed, however, that he al
ways looked round and rosy. He took
proper care of himself, and the best
possible care of his business. Nine out
of ten of the businesses that fail perish
of starvation. Their proprietors "spend
upon themselves the money which ought
to go to feed and fatten their business.
From selling a few Heralds, Tribunes
and 'n7is upon a board in the- street;
tho Brentanos now sell, in a superb
storo, even-thing in the world that has
the character of a periodical publica
tion: newspapers from China, Calcutta
and New Zealand; magazines in every
cultivated language. 1'ouUCs Compan

Taking Ostrich Eggs.
An ostrich farmer in South Africa
gave a correspondent .of Forest and
Stream on interesting account of the
way Hottentots steal eggs out of an os
trich nest. He said :
Hunters tell 'how the old birds can
trace tho slightest touch of the human
hand upon the eggs, aud -how that the
bushmen when Uicy rob a nest, have
to lift the eggs out with sticks; but
Jantje, the Hottentot, says this is a
mistake. He says he has handled eggs
without the old birds ever observing it,
and that the wild birds' eggs can be
freely handled, and as long as too many
are not taken out the old bird is none
the wiser. The way Jantje robbed
nests was this: In some bush-covered
plain where ho had reason to think, os
triches might be found, he went about
midnight, walking cautiously, and when
reasonably near, sitting under some
bush. Here he remained till about
three o'clock in the morning. About

Here arc some suggestions impossi
ble for most people to follow for tho
cultivation of health and vigor:
Eat wheneveryou are htingr'. Stop
eating a' tor you are satisfied.
Sleep whenever you feel like it. Sleep
is one of Nature's calls for repair of
bodv. Hunger is one also.
Live on the ground as well as in the
open air as much as possible. Inure
yourself to weather and changes of
weather. Human beings should not be
Chango 'our habits occasionally. Do
not always eat in tho same place.
Samenessof table, snmencss of cooking,
sameness of assojiation, sameness of
surroundings begets tameness of appe
Never get "tired out" if you can help
it. Simple exhaustion has about as
much to do with disease as any other j
cause. Three-fourths of our complaints
are but different forms of exhaustion
Discard during hot weather all tight
bandaging of the body, including col
lars, ties, shoes and suspenders. Wear
only loose garments. Work only in the
early morning and evening hours.
Lounge during the heat of the day.
Find out vour talent and cultivate it.
The world really needs the best of every
thing. The trouble lies in making tho
world lind you out.
Believe in men's goodness rather than
their badness. Belief in total depravity
Drift along with the tide of events.
Watch and take advantage of oppor
tunities. Don't set your Ircad on a plan
and in trying to carry it out with
mathematical precision imagine that
you can bend circumstances, persons
or conditions exactly to your liking. A
hunter never plans to kill his game in
a certain spot, but to kill it when he
finds it. and the hunter who takes
things easy in the woods is apt to see

It has been a favorite practice with
nie to sow rye on every availab'c space
unoccupied by a regular farm crop, or
as soon as such crop is taken from the
ground, except where wheat or grass
was to follow instead. This 1 do either
to preoivupy the ground lo prevent its
growing up to weeds or to raise a green
crop to bo plowed under, or for pastur
ing, or for a crop, or for both the latter
purposes. 1 think r-e is preferable to
any other grain for these uses, being
tho most hardy aud reliable of all. I
have sown it any time from July to and
through December, and had it do al
most equally well; have sown in corn
at the last cultivating; pastured it all
the fall after the corn was .taken off,
and the nc t .May plowed undera heavy
green crop to plant potatoes. Have
sowed it the middle of August, then
pastured all tho lato fall and early
spring, then saved it for a good harvest
urop. Have sowed it the first of Sep
tember, and after ground was frozen;
in winter it would furn'sh the stock
quite an amount of green feed.
At other times I have sowed rve just
before the whiter set in. either Novem
ber or December, when it would come
up very early in the spring and give a
very fair crop. No weather or "treat
ment or insect seems to affect it much
Have plowed a heavy growth of it
under in November and in December.
when cverv inch of earlh in the furrow
slice would be permeated with the while
rootlets of this hardy growing crop, and
such a dense hotly of it as to keep the
frost out, allowing it to be plowed after
other ground was frozen hard. Have
plo.ved it under in May. when it was
three and a half feeth'gh. using acluvn.
and the hoed crop on that ground would
resist the drouth, as the Knd seemed to
hold the moisture betterthan any other.
It is sometimes thought to be" better,
when designed for a crop, to have rye
pastured rather close until say the 10":h
of May or thereabouts, after which it
will grow not quite so tall but even, and
a thick crop on the ground.
On this same principle I have heard
of some mowing the early growth off
be'ore its heading, and after that ob
tain a fair harvest crop, but I would
not recommend this except on strong,
rich land- Some would not sow rye on
their farms, fcr they say they never
woald get rid of it, but i't would come
up in crops for years afterward: but I
pav no attention "whatever to such com
plaint, for in making them .such men
acknowledge that ther are not masters
I of their profession, and if it was not rye
they wonid let weeds, or thistles, or
some other foul growth take more or
less of the space and of the plant food
which should have, gone to make a good
cien crop for the hnsbandman. In
growing rve for a crop, the
grain makes excellent feed and the
straw is often worth as much as hay.
