Hor namo was Kthcl Perkins
Not "illnervn Heaconstreet:"
She was plump nnd pink nnd dimpled,
And frivolous und sweet:
No gleamtrg gold rimmed glasses
Hestrode her pretty nose,
And hir fluffy golden hair was banged
And Hcdfcrn made hor clothes.
I talked of Holmes nnd Schiller,
Whom Alio didn't seem to know,
I npolto of Hobert Drowning .
And his tanijloil ertnl flow;
I mentioned Huddha, Heine, Keats, ,
In n circles- port ot wait
And she llstcnul most politely,
Uut murmured' "Whoaro they?''
I bought seits for nn Ibsen matinee,
She frowned: "O, what n shauiol
Why didn't you get tickets
For tho Yale nnd Harvard gimof
I took her out to lunch one day,
And orderid beans for two',
Sho turned her little noso aloft
And nuked for oyster stew.
Alas! AlasI My lloston maid,
Tho Ideal of jour kind

sMll bo hi the
1 am ii medic
nl man residing
In Dublin, hnil
on tins night in question was returning
about ll:!)J o'clock float tho neighbor
hood of Hin old's Cross, whcio I bad
been to superintend tho administering
of a hot bath to a patient, when tlio ic
flection of tho Uro on the sky to the
northwest attracted my attention und
drow tno to tho spot.
Incited by the animation 61 the
scene, 1 took an active part in tho c.
ertions of thi.se around m6, nli'd soon
bceamo thoroughly heated as well us
wetted in the service.
Among other duties undertaken by
tho volunteers with, whom 1 had usso
elated myself was the removal of a
number of casks, to got at ybicb it was
necessary to cross a plutforin of mason
ry built around it largo copper boiler in
tho.unilnlshcd end of the building.
1 had crossed twice in safety und was
about to venture a third time, when
' si in J? m
' 1 !r -jTZ
one ot tlio bystanders who hud wit
nessed my exertions directed my atten
tion to tho dangerous condition of the
timbers, which hung smoldering und
half suspended from the new brick
Lwork and threatened to pull down a
'r great part of tlio walls on each side in
their descent, which could not be far
I thanked my friendly warner for his
advice, and had taken it so far us to
letire a few steps from tho incon
venient neighborhood of tho flames,
when ono of tho firemen of Iho N
Insurance company got up on tho op
posltcsldo of the platform and signed
for some ono to como to his assistance.
I gave a look at tho nodding timbers
above; they seemed still too deeply
bedded in the masonry of tho building
to give ino any apprehension of im
mediate dangev. I ran up the Judder
that led to tho platform on that side,
but just as I gained tho top it heavy fall
of masonry took place from tlio angle
of tho pilo nearly overhead.
I became confused and rushed for
ward, hardly Jtiiowlug where I ran,
but I had scarcely taken three steps
in advance when 1 heard tho prolonged
tearing crash of the timbers overhead,
nnd next moment saw the beams
topple, when tlio mouth of the open
vessel, which, as I have mentioned,
wns bedded in masonry ut my fcot,
caught my eye.
It was not moro'thiin four fcot across;
the chances were that tho long timbers
would fall athwart, not into It. With
out bestowing a thought on how I was
to get out, I dropped at onco into the
bottom of tho hollow chamber.
Tho metal rovei bornted und tho
echoing sphoro rangrqund mo for a
tuoinout with a brazen clang then
crash, crash, with-tho din of thundur,
down camo the blazing timbers driv
ing, rolling, rcbound,lpg smashing till
before- them. , t r
.Instinctively t strove to cling to , Joe
sidq of the vessel tbcro was nothiiig
to hold on by, and I reeled back to tho
llttlo spot of level footing in tjio bot
tom, conscious for the lirst time that I
was in u trap out of which thoro was
no escape. ,
The vessel was u hollow sphoro of
about fourteen feet in dlametor, per
fectly smooth, except at the joinings of
the metal plates of which it was com
posed. Tlio only aperture, except tho
orifico at the top, was that by .which
tho contents weio intended jo bo
drawn off, but this was 'not much
wider than tho mouth of a lnrgq tum
I waB resigned for some time when
tho thought Hashed across my mind
that perhops if 1 called through this
nperttiro my voice might bo heard.
Tlio openiug was in tho very bottom of
tho vessel und I had to kneel down on
the rubbish to upply my mouth to it.
My knees did not eomolh contact Avith
tho metal, and my hands were defend
ed by thick gloves, thoroughly wetted,
bo that till I brought my fitco close to
tho upertura I had no suspicion, of tho
arendful truth that I was now to learn
tho copper was, so hot that I could
not hoar it against my skin. , , ,i
I pulled tho thermometer I had hep"
using in tempering my patient's bath
out of mv pocket It, stood ut one hun
dred und flvo degrees., placed tho.bulb
fiton tin metal, vheu the mercury
' rose with it rapidity that threatened to
US' tmifit the lufcc, and I took it away tor-
i rifled at what I saw and afraid to tvit
j ness tho whole truth.
Tho thermometer hod rjscu to one
hundred and twelve degrees, but I
know from tho experiments of Tor
dyco nnd Hanks that tho living fiber
could for a short time boar n heat more
than twice as gieat without permunent
injury. I next endeavored to form some
estimate of the heat tho metal must tie
qulro beforo tho contained ulr would
rise to n tempernturc of twohutidrcd
and fifty degrees, which I supposed it
possible I might bo able to bear. I
was calm enough to make several mem
oranda on my tablets w Itli tho purpose
of attaching them to u weight to bo
tied to tho end of my handkerchief and
Hung out in tho hopo of letting it bo
known where I was. I began thus:
"I am Dr. . of street. If any
ono finds this como to the copper in tlio

death for want of a ladder.
"I am wrapped in a cloud of steam
from my wet clothes. 'Iho thermome

that I may dio beforo tho hot metal
"Two hundred nnd thirty-two de

With almost tho Inst effort I wns ca
pable of making I put tlio tablets with
a heavy piece of mortar (but for tho
mortar 1 would have been burned to
the knees whero I stood) into tho end
of my handkerchief und flung it with
all my forco out of tho mouth of my
fiery prison. The agony I endured in
moving my naked aim so rapidly
tin ough the hot air was almost insup
portable. It was like stirring boiling
water with it.

suade tho peopla that piotectlou is u
"fraud," and that tho Mulxlnley turllt
not nlTeets injuriously tint Indiistrlnl in
terests of the country, ho-uis to be at
tended with increasing dlUlculty. AIL
tho facts in the case dlictitly contra
vene their inslstmoiit, but Unit perhaps
would not be regarded y them us nit
insuperable obstacle if the evidences
against them did not continue to multi
ply with such amazing lupldlty. Among
other testimony tlint of the commercial
nnd industrial bodies ut Mront Hritnlu,,
showing tho effect of the tariff upoiti
ltritlsh interest's is especliAly conelit-'
slve. At tlio recent annual meeting ot
tho chamber of commerce. It was con
fessed that "the coal, lion and stel
trades show increasing dullness, wbilu
tho textile industries tiro hnrassed by
the tariff." This is particularly true of
Sheflleld, Bradford and other centers,
where it is stated that certain old
branches of business huve been priie
tlcnlly destroyed by the McKinlry net.
The chairman of the Associated Cham
bcisof Comiucrco of tho United King
dom, in making these- statements, add
ed that "thotv was llttlo of betterment
in the present conditions." Along with
these declarations we have others as
to tho decline ot tho tlu-plute Industry,
and this, too, in face ot the vehement
democrutio contention that this indus
try in tho United States amounts to
nothing whatever ns n compotitig eco
nomic force. Then, too, wo read that
in some of tho British industries wages
ntc declining and tho condition of tlio
workinguicu is becoming despurate,
while tlio inspeetor-gcnoral of bank
ruptcy, in his recently published re
port, declares that tlio increuso in
bankruptcy "is duo to tlio effects of the
McKinley tariff law."
Conclusive as this testimony would
seem to be, there nro other facts, re
lating to tho industrial situation at
home, which nro equally striking ns
corroborating tlio statistics from
abroad. Ono of tlio latest evidences of
the beneficent effects of tho McKinley
law is furnished in the report of tlio
Massachusetts bureau ot statistics of
labor. Tills bureau lias alwuys been
regarded as ono of tho most trust
worthy in tho country, and its reports
have come to bo accepted us indisputa
ble by all fair-minded men. Tlio re
port for 1801, which has just been pub
lished, shows that, comparing that
year with lb90, there was an increase
ot 2,05 per cent, in the amount of wages
paid during tlio year, the aggregate.
paiu uoing tu,;io,in. greater in lb'Ji
than in 1600. The largest increase was
in woolen goods, amounting to 7. U
per cent. It ls noteworthy that tiio
report of tho United Htntcs finarice
committee, which embraced tho whole
country, mado tho increuso in woolen
goods manufactures 7.00 percent. The
Massachusetts statistics strikingly
confirm the figurcB given by Commis
sioner Peck ns to tho improvement of
Now York industries. A recent report
of the Indinna labor bureau bears sim
ilar testimony touching tho influence
of tlio McKinley tariff upon wages nnd
production. The fact is thut all testi
mony, from whatever Quarter, is con
current as to this point, nnd it is most
surprising that anyone should under
take to deny facts so obvious nnd con
clusive, No amount of special plead
ing or manipulation of statistics can
change the facts in tho ease. Protec
tion is everywhoro stimulating our in
dustries, increasing the canting of
workingmen, nnd augmenting our abil
ity as a people to compete in many
forms of production in the markets of
the world. It will bo strange, indeed,
if the American people, exceptionally
prosperous as they are, and facing tin
equaled opportunities tor national de
velopment, do not approve, by an over
whelming vote, tlio protective principle
which, in every test, bus contributed so
imincusoly to tho general comfort und

' A I.IU1 on III Cow,
"ho cow is a born thief," said
Thomas Urimshaw to a party of com
mercial pilgrims who went discussing
xoology in tho Lindclf rotundu. ".She
will leave a s'quure meal, gotten up ex
pressly for her by an imported chief,
to wear her tongue ns thin as n polit
ical platform trying to coax a wisp of
rotten straw through a eraclc In a
neighbor's barn. Hho relishes nothing
so much ns what sho steals. 'Sho has a
long hoad, und could give1 mauvrof our
mtlitury heroes points on strategy.
Any cow that has paid attention to her
education can open a gurden gatu that
fastens with a bank vault lock, get in
side and do fifty dollars' wortli of dam
ago before the infuriated owner can re
member that the shotgun is not loaded.
Tho cow is a calf, if our city butehers
are to be believed, until there is no
more room on her horns for rings.
When sho is too old to give two quarto
of mlllc per diem and then kick It all
over tho dewy-lipped milkmaid, the
careful fanner drives her on a railroad
track, wrecks a freight train with her,
and then suos tho company for tho
price of a Jersey. Of course tho com
pany hides woise than the cow oyei
did, but the honest agriculturist gets
