THE CUTTING OF THE CAKE.
Blr Grovcr gnotli : ' 'Let each one hers
Of stomps of wine and sumptuous cheer
Most heartily partake :
And whilst you arc thus well employed ,
1 ween inv consort will be joved
To cat tbe hrldal cake I"
Then salth the hrlde , as curts'ying low :
"There Is no sweeter task , I trow ,
' 1 ban ( which is now my life )
Y * > do thy will , my liege ; BO I
' ould fain with thy request comply
If I hut had : i knife. "
Thereat of shining blades a score
Leapt from their knightly sheaths hcforc
You could have counted two ;
And each brave knight right humbly prayed
The lailv to accept his blade
Wherewith her will to do.
But Lady Frances shook her head
And with sweet dignity she said :
"Xnnc other's blade I'll take
Save hi * , who hath my rev'rence won
My pole star and my central sun
And his shall cut the cake ! "
Then did Sir Grovcr bend him to
His trousers jxjckcL whence he drew
A jnckknife , big and fat ,
The " which he pave Into her hand , .
"Whereat the others inurmered , and
They marveled much thereat.
But when the cake was cut , the rest
Made proper hurry to attest
In knightly phrase emphatic
How that the cake was passing nice
And how the blade that cleft each slice
Was truly democratic.
THE LINKS THE GAT FORKED.
BYW. . J. HENDERSON' .
It was past 11 o'clock when I opened
the door and the black cat walked slow
ly out and down the steps waiting to
see if I followed. I turned up the col
lar of my coat , for the air was chilly ,
and went out again into tlie beautiful
October night. The street was as si
lent as the footfalls of the lithe animal
softly walking down the stops. The
black cat led the way , and I followed.
Why , I do not know.
Two nights before I had walked up
from my ollice late with a friend. It
was long past midnight when we turn
ed into the quiet street where I lived ,
talking about I know not what. Sud
denly there stepped out of the shadow
of a huga tree a black cat. Looking
aeithcr to the right nor the left , she
walked deliberately before us.
Ha ! " said my friend , with a tragic
air , "a cat ! a black cat ! Let us fol
low the cat ! "
And then he laughed , and even as he
walked tho echoes down the street I
can not tell why I shivered. The cat
walked silently along past tlie .lower
steps of the flights leading down from
the houses , keeping a pace or two ahead
of us. My friend left me at his door ,
saying , "Good-night. Beware of the
cat. " I went to my house not far be
yond. At the steps the cat stopped ,
hesitated for a moment , and then walk-
up to the door. Somewhat surprised , I
I do not like cats. Tbey seem to me
to be treacherous , dangerous brutes ,
and I am even half afraid of them. But
when the black cat stopped at mv door
I determined , for some inexplicable
reason , to admit her. She seemed to
know my room , for she walked up the
single llight of stairs before me and en
tered the room as I opened the door. I
found her stretched out on the floor
when I had lighted the gas , and if she
had lived in 1113 * room all her life she
could not have appeared more at home.
For the same inexplicable'reason that I
admitted the cat to my house I allowed
her to remain in my room.
The next evening I came in earlier ;
it may have been 10 o'clock. The
black cat met me at the door and dart
ed by me as I stepped over tlie thres
hold. Then , as I turned to see whith
er she had gone , I felt a pull at the leg
of my trousers , and saw that the cat
had fastened a claw there and was
certainly trying to draw me from tho
house. I stooped down and softly
stroked the animal's back , at the same
time disengaging her claw. Then I
turned and entered the house , and the
catj after a moment of apparent irre
solution , followed me , mewing strange
The next night she again met me at
the door , and the effort to draw me .
from the house was repeated. The j
desire was so apparent that I was puz
zled , and , I own , a little disturbed.
The cat went with me to 1113 * room , and.
sitting there in tlie lirc-liglit. with her
bright eyes slairlngat me , T formed a I
purpose to yield to this curious whim 1
if it were again displayed. I tried to j
reason with .myself , but reason seemed I
to have given way to an impulse as \
uncontrollable as it was mysterious. I
I passed an uneasy night and then a '
day , half hoping that when evening j
came my unbidden and unwelcome I
guest would be gone. I heard the
clocks in the houses alomr the street
where I lived strike 11 as I walked
down toward my door. As I stepped
over the threshold I saw the fiery ; eyes
of the cat in the dark hall. A cold
shiver passed through my frame. I
trembled with an excitement as intense
as it was sudden. My heart began to
beat so loudly that I involuntarily held
my hands over it as if to still it. 'Then
summoning my resolution I followed
the cat down the steps and strode after
her as she flitted down the street.
It was a black night. Heavj * , swol
len grayclouds had been hanging low
in the sky when darkness came on , and
now they draw an impenetrable veil be
tween the earth and the stars. The ' on
old , winding streets of the quarter of
the town in which 1 lived were silent at
and deserted. Now and then a gust of
wind swept down and swung some shut
ter back upon its hinges with a hoarse ,
grating sound. The moaning of the
wind was full of strange meanings to
' me. Mr thoughts wandered off through
the black arches of that dismal night ,
and as I strode down the street drawn
irresistibly after the noiseless black cat ,
there came up before me a vivid picture
of the tragedy which had come into
my life only a year before , when I had
completed my college course.
I saw my father's house a large
white building , surroundod by spacious
piazzas and standing in the middle of a
6 wide , velvet-like lawn. I saw my fath
er sitting in his comfortable library ,
from which two bay windows opened
upon the piazxa. He had leftrcy sister
and mother and myself in an adjoining
room , and was sitting at a table facing
one of the open windows. A student's
lamp cast a soft , mellow light over the
room. Behind my father stood his safe ,
which contained a large sum of mono } ' ,
put there to pay his workmen on the
following morning. The door between
the library and the room in which we
were was open , and occasionally he
spoke to us. Then came a long silence ,
and we heard only tho soft patter of
the rain on the piazzas.
"What can father be doing , " asked
my sister at length , "that keeps him
so quiet ? "
"Writing , I suppose , " said my
mother. "He is making up the pay
rolls , you know. "
"Then he'll never get through , " re
plied uiy sister , "for he has fallen
asleep , I'm sure. "
We listened again. We heard only
the steady , monotonous patter of thq
rain."Well , " said my sister , rising , "don't j
you think I ought to wake him up ,
mother ? "
"Yes , " answered my mother.
My sister went into the next room.
"Father , " she said , "wake up ; it is
growing late. "
There was no answer. The next
moment a piercing shriek rang through
"My God ! He is dead ! "
Horror stricken , we rushed into the
room. The safe had been robbed and
my father shot through tlie heart while
he sat not thirty feet away from us , and
we had not heard a sound. At the
post-mortem examination they found
in his body a curious missile more than
an inch long and shaped partly like a
bullet and partly like a dart. The
point was sharp and three sharp faces
ran back toward the face of the missile.
Experts said the missile had been pro
jected by some force other than powder ,
else my mother and sister would have
heard the report , and the } ' talked very
learnedly about the application of coin-
pressed air and even hinted at elec
tricity. But what manner of weapon
the murderer used none could say.
I had mechanically taken the dart
and put it into 1113' pofcket , I alwaye
carried it there in the vague hope that
someday it might help me to unravel
tlie mystery of my father's death ,
which had slain my mother and had
rested upon my soul like a great pall. J
had that dart in 1113' pocket even then.
And there I was following a mysleri-
ous black cat out of the suburbs of the
city in the gloom } * night and down a
country road , moved b3 * some impulse
which I could not explain , and which ,
strangely enough , I did not want ex
plained. The cat turned into a nar
row lane leading to a piece of dense-
woods. I could hear the bell in the ca
thedral tower striking the hour of mid
night. I was cold almost numb al
though the night was hardly chilly. I
wanted to go back , 3-et I went on. My
03-08 vainly strove to penetrate the
black arches of the forest. The whisp
ering of the night wind in the trees
was full of hidden meanings. Cold per
spiration trickled down my forehead.
M3r teeth chattered. My knees knock
ed together. Yet I went on.
At the edge of the wood the cat
paused. I could not see her body , but
her C3'es glowed in the darkness with a
wierd light. She began to mew and
the sound echoed dismally among the
trees , dying away in smothered sobs in
the darkness. I couid tell hy the agita
tion of the dead leaves at my fcct'that
the cat was scratching , as if hunting
for something. Prcsentl3T she utter
ed a long , piercing ciy that seemed to
make the very trees tremble and then
she was silent and motionless. Tremb
ling violently. I struck a match and
stooped over her. She had her foot on
something half covered by leaves. It
looked like a dead branch. I picked it
up. It was a sun not like any I had
overseen before , but still like a "gun. I
looked at it blankly. Mechanically I
drew from 1113' pocket the curious missile
which I ahvaj's carried and dropped it
into the barrel. It fit perfectly. The
horror that rushed over me when I
knew that I hold in my hands the
weapon which had slain my father was
too great to be borne. Tho skies reeled
above me. I saw n hundred pairs of
glowing C3Tes. I tottered , groaned , and
fell senseless upon the earth.
Two 3'cars passed away. I had not
3'et solved the mystery. My sister was
about to be married , and 1 was prepar Yi
ing to go to the wedding. She had
been living with relatives in Cincinnati ,
where she. her
was completing musical
studies. There she had met a young lii
man whom I had never seen , but who. tli
all my relatives assured me , was worthy in
to become m\r sister's husband. He inai
had been in Cincinnati only two years , re
but had 5u that time made himself a tL
favorite in the best society of the city. cr
He had plenty of 11101103 % which he said re
he had made in the West , where had a sj
large cattle ranch. . I saw no reason j
why I should object to my sister's
I had invited Mortimer Melville to go
with me. Mortimer was my most inti
mate friend , although I had known him
less than' two 3TearsI had the good
fortune to find his pocketbook , which of
he lost , and took it to the business ad
dress written on a card inside. From
that trivial incident our friendship grew
up. We never visited each other's
rooms , because we used to prefer to sit
together in the smoking room of the
modest club to which we belonged.
Having invited him to go to the wed
ding with me'I was waiting for him in a
my room , where he was to call for me
his way to the station.
"Come in. " I said , hearing a knock
"Good morning , old fellow , " he said ,
entering , "it's a little early 3'et. but i
confess I was a little curious to have a ist.
peep at your rooms before starting.
Prettv comfortable place you have here ,
"Yes , it is. Make yourself at home.
Mort , while I coax the total depravity his
out of this necktie. "
Mortimer strolled" around the room
looking at the pictures. Suddenly he
uttered an exclamation of surprise. I
turned and saw him pointing at the his
black cat. which was lying asleep on the the
"Where' did you get that cat ? " he
"She followed me home one night , " a
"She's mine , " he exclaimed. " 1 lost
her j , two years ago. before I knew you. "
Then lie walked to the other side of
the \ \ room and called , "Here Witch ,
Witch. " The cat rim to him and
purred around his feet.
"You see , " he said , "she answers to
her name. But how on earth did 3'ou
get her ? "
I looked at my watch. We had an
hour | 1 ( to spare. I sat down and told
him \ the whole story. As I went on I
noticed that a look of deep trouble set
tled upon his features. When I had
concluded < he said :
"Have you the gun yet ? "
"Yes , " I answered , taking it from a
| closet /
My God. I knew it ! " he cried. "It
is my gun. "
Yo"ur gun ! " I echoed , aghast.
I stood looking at him for a moment
tr3'ing to collect my thoughts.
Thoughts too terrible to entertain
crowded ; upon me.
"You can not be , " I said , "my fath-
"No , no , not that , " he interrupted ,
"I mean that I invented the gun. It
was my idea , and the cun was made
for me. It was the first one ever made
and and I sold it. "
"Sold it ! " I cried. "To whom ? "
"Listen , " said Mortimer , "and I will
tell < you all about it. God knows I have
nothing to conceal. I discovered a
new and powerful use of compressed
air. I worked at 1113' idea a long time
and finally made a gun which was a
success. ; I was poor and needed money
to push the invention , and when one
day j a young man came into my shop
and wanted to buy this particular gun
I sold it to him. He said he wanted it
as a curiosity ; and paid me a good
round sum for it. I know this is the
gun , because there is no patent mark
on it. The 3'oung man was the son oi
a good family with lots of mone3r. 3
learned afterward that he had a bad
reputation. He lived a wild and disso
lute life for a long time , but I under
stand that he reformed a couple ol
years ago , and is now once more
ceived in good societ\ ' . "
"But who was this man ? " I asked.
"What was his name ? "
"George Sutherland. " said Morti
1 had never heard the name before ,
but I knew that was the man t had been
looking for , and I could see another
step toward solving the mystery of my
father's death. Without thinking ol
what 1 was doing I took the missile
from the chamber of the gun and put it
into my pocket.
"Come , " I said , "we have just time
to see the Chief of Police and tell him
about this man. "
The chief knew all the details of my
father's death , and with me had often
examined the gun. Mortimer gave all
the information in his possession , and
an hour later we were on the road.
When we arrived at Cincinnati on
the morning of the wedding we went
to the house of my relatives. When
we were told that the groom had ar
rived Mortimer and I went together to
the room where the young man was
with his friends. I went in first and
was introduced to ni3r prospective broth- .
er-in-law. I found him a good-looking
man of the world , well fed , and'rather
That was all I had time to notice be
fore Melville entered the room. I saw
a sudden pallor come upon the face oi
the man who was about to become my
sister's husband. Mortimer Melville
started forward and without waiting foi
an introduction exclaimed :
"George Sutlieland ! "
That was not the name given to me in
the introduction. It wasthe name ol ,
the man I believed to be ni3 * father's as
sassin. 1 staggered ; my tongue clove tc
the roof of my mouth.
"It is he ! " ened Mortimer. "He
bought the gun ! "
"What do you mean ? " stammered
Then my senses returned. I drew the
curious missile from my pocket and held
it before his eyes.
"Miserable wretch ! " I exclaimed.
"Look at this this you sent to my
father's heart. But now 3011 shall suf
fer for your cowardly crime. "
I sprang forward lo seize him by the
throat. With a sudden bound he elud
ed my grasp and the next moment
sprang through the open window into
"Stop him ! " I shouted ; "stop the
villain ! "
Twenty men sped after him. He was
caught. He confessed that the mur-
dpr had been the crowning act of his
life , and with the monc3 * taken from
the safe he had gone west and engaged
the cattle trade. Returning under
an assumed name , he had seen and
rcall3r loved m3r sister. He suffered
the extreme penalty of the law for his
crime. My sister , after a long illness , .

Tlie Feet of a Bee.
Naturalists say that the feet of the
common working bee exhibit the com
bination of a basket , a brush and a. pair
pincers. The brush , the hairs ol
which are arranged in symmetrical
rows , is only to be seen with the micro
scope. With this brush of fairy deii-
cacy the bee brushes its velvet robes' to
remove the pollen dust with which it
becomes loaded while sucking up the
nectar. Another article , hollowed like
spoon , receives all the gleanings
which the insect carries to the hive.
Finally by opening them , one upon an
other , by means of a hinge , these two
pieces become a pair of pincers , which
render important service in the con
struction of the combs. Home Natural
