WHY COUIJJX'T SHE HAVE WAITED?
The new maid, who showed Philip Breton
into Mrs. Eilingsworth's parlor, was not near
13- as pretty as her predecesor iu office, but
he was too much absorlied w ith his delicate
errand to take any notice of her. Bertha
was alone somewhere, doer-ted, unprotected.
Something must be done for her. It was a
strange place to seek pity for her, In the
woman's bosom which he had seen heaving
in liate of her: but a magnanimous heart ia
wont to count on the generosity of others.
The maid had said Mr. EUingsworth was not
iu, and so he was left to appeal to the woman'
ly tenderness of h: wife.
He rose suddenly from the satin covered
sofa and looked wondericgly at a woman's
form in the doorway. Could this be the poor
little factor' girl, "this fashionably dressed
woman, with a train like a queen's? He had
stupidly enough expected to find her in the
same old calico dress, perhaps with the
dingy, plaid shawl about her shoulders.
But the girl was not so sensitive as to bean-noj-ed.
Had not she kept him waiting while
she dressed on purpose to enjoy a triumph?
And now sho was quite pleased at the plain
evidence of it. She smiled rather consciously
as bho extended her jeweled little hand to
"Why ha-ent you called before" Her
voice had lost the desperate or sullen tono he
remembered in it of old, but he was not sure
he liked it any ltter. He bowed, like any
gentleman, as he touched her hand, and
noticed the great gold bracelets on her slim
wrists. Philip was unpleasantly reminded of
manacles, and then the massive chain around
her neck, with a huge locket shaped like a
padlock, had suggestions, too, of a sort, he
fancied, the girl would hardly have liked if
bho had thought of them. He glanced at her
olive cheeks, and the slightly oblique eyes,
and the voluptuous fullness of her form.
How could an American village have pro
duced so perfect an odalisque?
"I did not wish to interrupt your honey
moon." He seated hinrelf again.
She was looking oddly at him, as if curious
whether he had forgotten her indiscreet visit,
when she liad told him of her own broken
Philip suddenly met her eyes as she sat op
posite him. "The truth is, Mrs. EUings
worth, I have hardly been in the mood for
polite calls of late. I suppose you under
stand." "How should IP She elevated her dark
brows rather unpleasantly as if to dismiss,
once for all, am- further confidences with
him. Philip smiled, in spite of himself, at
"Do j-ou know where Bertha is?" he asked,
A sudden flash of color lit up her cheeks.
"I hate the very namo of her," she exclaimed,
as she rose as if to leave him. She was not
yet wonted to the customs of her new rank.
"Don't go," he urged, ' am so anxious to
know where she is. No doubt you have
cause to be angry with her," Philip did not
notice the growing passion in the girl's eyes,
"but you surely would not have her starve to
death, or suffer and die alone."
"PorliaiH not;5 Jane meant to smile, but
she only produced tho effect of showing the
cruel white of her teeth. "Hasnt she got"
the word stuck in her throat, "him?"
"Why, didn't 3ou know," cried Philip
breathlessly, "she lias left him? She is alone
somewhere, for all we know, in want; think
of it, and she too proud to "
"Left her huslkiud?"
"If ho was her husband I didn't know,V ho
hurried on, as if afraid of the answer that
would come; "I never heard, and I didn't
like to ask.''
She had seated herself on the pink satin
beside him and caught his hands as she bent
toward him to read his thoughts before he
"Did j-ou hear they were not married?" she
almost hissed at him.
"Why, yes, that is" he looked away in
his shame. "It was told about the village,
but you know better, of course." He tried to
laugh, then grew sober again. "How vile of
them to whisper it, and it was vile of me to
let even the taint of a fear into my mind."
But she did not answer him j-es or no. Her
eyes had grown preternaturally large, and
there was n happiness in them as if she looked
right into the gates of heaven. All the com
mon expressions were gone from her face.
One could read there now nothing but purity
and sweetness, such as makeup tho substance
of dreams of love.
"And he is alone. Oh! whero is he? I
must know. I must go to him. It cannot
be true." The angelic look flitted, the ex
quisite drooping at the corners of her mouth
"If you have lared to lie to me.' Philip
was perfectly astonished at the sudden
change in her face and voice. Her black
eyes blazed ungovernable passion into his.
Tho quick transition from the height of
blissful hope to the depths of deep despair
eemed to bear her over the line of humanity.
"Tell me, have you lied to make a show of
She trembled for an instant, like a wild
creature Itefore a spring, then she clutched
with her hot supple fingers at his throat,
magnificent as a tigress and in every motion
a perfect, terrible grace. Philip threw her
from him as he would some untamed animal;
it was hard to remember her womanhood
She sat where he had left her, as if just
awoke from a terrible nightmare, her fingers
parted and curved and moved spasmodically
as if she 3-et held him by tho throat. Then
he buried her face in the cushion iu a flood
"I didn't know what I was doing," she
Sobbed. "Don't remember it," I was mad."
She rose tremblingly to her feet and came
forward covering her face with her Mtufc
She might have been an abused child, so
gentle and sweet she seemed now. She took
down her hands from her face; what man
could bo so cold and hard as to stand against
such eyes as hers looking through their tears.
But sho was alone.
"Oh, my God, my God, why couldnt I
have waited P
She tore the gold chain from her neck and
cast it on tho floor. Her husband had given
it to her, and she hated him at this moment
and the proud name he had put upon her.
She had rather one smile of that other's than
all these empty golden favors.
"I am sick of their soft ways and their
lying tongues," she moaned; "why didn't I
wait?" Jane EUingsworth began to walk
rapidly about the room, wrenching the great
gold bands about her wrists, unconscious
that she chafed and bruised the skin
"I might have known God would not deny
him to me, I wanted him so much. Oh, my
love, my darling, I would have fought for
you, I would have starved for you. It would
have been sweet with you, and I could not
wait one year. I might have known it would
come, but I could not wait." She drove her
nails into her flesh as she clasped them in her
anguish. She panted for breath; her rich
silk dress seemed to suffocate her, and the
perfumed air was too heavy and dead; it
seemed to strangle her.
"He is free ; he would have opened his arms
tome. He may be coming now to ask me to
go with him. He could never have loved
that cold, bloodless creature. Ah, how I
could have loved him. I would have taught
him that a woman can love."
- She unclasped her hands and let them fall
gently to her side, and her convulsed face
took on a new, soft tenderness. "I would go
with him," she murmured. "A hungry heart
' cannot feed on such things as these. Oh, but

has sold herself; he would not have me. He
would despise me; he would not even look at

chairs' she had bought with her .husband's
r oaey, and cried and sobbed till the salt
louatala dried up. It. was then, white aht
tat stent and tearless, looking at her bruised
wrists and at the wounds her nails had made,
that she heard a familiar, delicate tread in
the halL It was as well Mr. EUingsworth
did not catch tho expression on her set, weary
face as his tall form appeared in the doorway.
He seemed to her fancy that moment the
most terrible monster in the world, this ele
gant figure of a man, whose disposition was
the very essence of refinement, and she
dropped her eyes to the carpet as he came
toward her with his eternal smile.
"All alone, Jennie? Why ou have dropped
your chain, here it is on the floor."
"Oh, thank you,' but she shuddered in spite
of herself as he seated himself near her and
warmed her hands fondly between his own
soft, white palms.
"My little girl," he began.
Yes, she was his, his and no other's, his
every day and hour of her life, for badnt
be bought her, and what better title was there
than that by purchase? She raised her eyes
and made them rest on his fine, smooth
shaven face. She had never noticed before
a certain cold and cruel light in his e'es, as
if he could enjoy keenly tho torture of a
living soul, or that beside the sensual lines
of his finely chiseled mouth there was a
suggestion of an exquisite brutality on the
thin lips. Sho trembled before him.
"I have a favor to ask of you." He looked
admiringly at her as he spoke. Mr. EUings
worth never tired of the rich, oriental type
of his wife's beauty. If Bertha's mother had
been like her there need never have been any
unpleasant stories in the community on her
score. And Jane was loveUer than ever to
day, with this peculiar brilliancy in her eyes
and the bright red spot on either dark cheek.
She didn't know how to furnish her parlor
very well, but ho had never yet been sorry
he married her. She seemed to understand
so well how to manage him, never too fond,
always a little on her guard, like a judicious
artist, who will not let even the most ardent
admirer come too near his canvas.
"It is about Bertha," he continued, not
seeming to notice her start. "She has left
that fellow. I haven't troubled j-ou before,
but she has been alone up in Vineboro for a
good many months. I think best she should
come home now. It will bo in better taste"
Mr. EUingsworth rose to his feet at a rum
bling noise and stepped to the window. When
he oame back the color bad faded from Jane's
cheeks and her smaU mouth closed very tight.
Her hands were trembling violently, but she
had hid them in the folds of her dress, so her
husband could not see her intense excitement.
Her heart was beating loudly; her old mad
ness seemed coming upon her again, but this
man's cold, smiling face subdued her.
"When is she coming?'
"I didn't know but that was the carriage;
well, I suppose she ma- be here," he glanced
at his gold faced watch, "perhaps in an hour
The girl's lips quivered; she almost broke
into a passion of angry words; the hate that
saethed in her heart for that woman was al
most bubbling forth its bitterness. But the
cool assurance on her husband's face, as his
keen, pitiless e-es seemed to search out all
tho secrets of her soul, cowed the woman.
She rose and moved, as one ia a dream, to
ward the door.
"I must get things ready then." And so
this was what her gentle voiced husband
caUed asking a favor of her. She did not
love him, but she feared him, now, as she re
membered her secret. She would obey his
nod as if she were his dog, she would study
the signs on his placid face. He had never
anything but smiles and kind speeches for
her, but she would have sunk into the very
earth at his feet rather than that he should
open his mysterious armory of instruments
of deadly torture for the soul.
"Well, weU, I thought she would make
The afternoon sun was well down on his
last stretch when Philip Breton came back
from his factor', aU(l 'P the street toward
Mr. Ellingsworth's house. There was some
ono with him, a man so tall and slight that
tho weight of his head, which was quite
large, seemed to bow him. It was an old
gentleman, to judge from the wrinkles on
bis face, but he had hardly enough hair to
show whether it was gray or only flaxen.
"You have done splendidly, my boy!" It
was an old acquaintance of Philip's, whom
he had used to talk philosophy with at col
lege, one of those benevolent minded gen
tlemen who are so optimistic that they have
togotoboj-s for sympathy. "Splendidly,"
he repeated, "only why stop just where you
are? If every mill owner would do in his
mill what 'ou have done, it would be a grand
thing for this world. But they won't. Now
you have started beautifully, but there is
too much business to your plan."
Philip smiled argumentatively. It was
like his boyhood returned to hear the old
man's mellow tones.
"But, Mr. Philbrick, an honest business
man can do more good than a dozen imprac
ticable philanthropists like you."
"But think of the things that business
principles never can regard. Your help
work ten weary hours a day, all ther poor
lives; business demands that, doesn't it?
Well, I say that is where benevolence must
come in. It is terrible to be shut up as they
are; it kills body, mind and soul. Business
principles never can save them," said the old
gentleman, turning his kindly eyes on the
young mill owner; "philanthropy, I don't
care what you call it, some gentle spirit of
love ought to lift the burden that crushes the
lifo and hope out of them, contrary to busi
ness principles, higher than business prin
ciples." As Mr. Philbrick finished, a close carriage
rolled by them and stopped a little beyond,
where a gentleman and lady stood to welcome
"Your reforms," answered PhUip, after a
moment's thought, "should be founded on
business principles. Then the force of the
business instinct will carry them out. Oth
erwise" ho lifted bis hat to Mrs. EUings
worth, but she did not seem to notice him;
her eyes were fixed on her husband, who was
in the act of handing a lady out of the car
riage. The lad wore a traveling suit of a
blue shade. Her face was hid as she stepped
down, showing a white feather in the back
of her hat, and a few strands of golden hair
below. Then she raised her face as the car
riage rolled away, and a wild, sweet thrill of
pain shot through Philip's heart, while every
nerve in his body tingled like finely tuned
stringed instruments, trembling in sympathy
with a resounding chord. His feet refused
to take him away, while his hungry eyes de
voured Bertha's beauty, for it was no other
than she come back his lost darling found
again. His heart warmed, as he looked, into
a divine glow; how cold it had been, and so
long. A great burden of weariness seemed
lifted from him. It was as if, after a dreary
old age, the sweet peace of childhood was
born in him again.
For the moment he forgot everything that
had come between them, as in the bright,
perfumed morning a child forgets the dreary
night just past But the long night had
changed her; the exquisite roundness of her
face and form had gone; even her grand blue
eyes seemed faded liko her cheeks, once so
rich in their sunset glow. And he only
yearned over her the more tenderly the new
element of pity seemed only wanting before
to glorify his love into a religion. He longed
to rush to her, putting away her father, who
had no caresses for her, and his wife, who
was darting flashes of hate at the anwelcomo
guest He would enfold her in bit arms.
She would bo glad for them at last; such
love as his made the closest kin in the world.
He took a step toward her, but no one saw
His hungry eyes devoured Bertha? a' beaut v.
The eyes of the two women met Their
wiUs met and struggled for the mastery in
that moment Undisguised hate was in one
face, lofty contempt in the other. There bad
been one gentle, wistful expression in Bertha's
face as she first alighted, but there was no
trace of it now. She bad drawn herself up
to bar full height, to that the other woman
seemed like a child before her, and her hand,
as it fell to her side, opened outward in a
gesture of disdain for the creature her father
had chosen for his wife. It was hardly a
second before her rare lips parted. They at
least had not changed. Jane winced for fear
of some bitter taunt She had learned bow
terrible a blow well trained tongues osa give;
but the words wereonly some polite common
place; the tone well, it caused Mr. EUings
worth to glance critically at bis wife. She
seemed vulgar in his eyes for the first time.
Jane tried to brazen it out, but her face only
took on an expression of pugnacious insignifi
cance. "What was it you were saying?" resumed
Mr. Philbrick as Philip overtook him.
"I had forgotten."
"Speaking of business?" suggested the
other, and then continued himself, not dis
pleased at an extra turn. "Business, I say,
is heartless and cruel as death. It is pitiless,
and pity is the noblest of emotions; it is un
generous, it is unfair, wo have had enough of
it when it grinds so terribly."
Mr. Philbrick thought his tirade would
surely fetch an enthusiastic retort But
Philip only walked on by his side in silence;
he seemed intent on some beautiful masses of
cloud just behind tho sun, as he sped on his
way to the west.
"Cant afford it, cant afford it," went on
the old gentleman, gesticulating with his
forefinger, "that is what you would say, I
presume; of course you cant if the upper
rlnrart waste the wealth they da I 'tell you
there is no sense or excuse for a man spend
ing ten and twenty and fifty thousand dol
lars a year. Why.it is a good workman in
your mill who earns ten thousand dollars in a
lifetime, adding ail bis days' wages together.
There ought to be more fairness about these
things. Such men as you, Philip Breton, get
too much more than any reasonable creature
could want Now, you ought to go right to
work and distribute your surplus I mean
your real surplus back where it came from,
among the poor. It takes but very little
money to buy what can make a life comfort
able and complete. The rich are always com
plaining that they dont enjoy life more than
tho middle classes, but they manage to waste
what would makea thousand wretched homes
happy without one pang of conscience."
"But what do you want me to dot" asked
Philip in astonishment.
The old gentleman's face was flushed with
"Why I want you to take hold, and begin
to make things equal, by paying back your
surplus in one form or another. Give them
better homes to live in. Shorten their hours
so they can have a little existence besides
drudgery; pay them better wages."
Philip looked distressed and doubtful
He had thought the subject over carefully
and believed he had done a great deal already
for his poor. His philanthropic friend would
turn the whole world topsoy turvoy.
"Why, you know what the books say
that giving so much would spoil all the spirit
and patience of the working classes."
"Mere arguments devised to soothe the
consciences of the rich," explained Mr. Phil
brick with a grand air. "Though there is
such a thing as unwise benevolence, en
couraging paupers and beggars; but a man
who works every day of his life isn't a beg
gar. Your father made a good investment
that brings you in say a quarter million a
year. That is rather above what you pay
your best workman; but it doesnt hurt your
manliness any, my boy. The poorest paid
hand in your factory works a great deal
harder than you; you needn't be afraid of
degrading bis manhood until he gets a quarter
"But wouldnt they hang off on their oars
unless they had to struggle for a livelihood P
"My dear Philip, you wouldn't think it
necessary to starve a horie, and hang a bag
of oats just before his nose to make him go.
Better feed him the oats, and a healthy ani
mal likes to go. Do you lie off on your oars?
You could afford it a thousand times better
than they. Give them a chance for hope and
ambition, and it will produce the best work
ever known. Who lives here?"
He stopped in front of a graceful little cot
tage, through whose open windows one could
see into cheerful, weU furnished rooms. A row
of maple saplings had been lately set in front,
and plenty of green shrubs and ample vines
gave the place a most charming air.
"John Graves, one of my workmen. His
daughter married rich, and it is her hus
band's money which has worked the remark
able transformation." PhiUp was very glad to
change the subject "John's wife was sick
supposed to be an invalid. See that ladylike
woman watering the hanging pot ? that is she.
Ellingsworth's money made the change. As
for Graves himself, he used to be bowed al
most like a cripple. He was as melancholy as
an undertaker, and he had good reason to be,
poor fellow. He used to pull a great sloach
hat down over his face to hide as much as he
could of himself. WeU, you wouldn't know
him now; he is as respectable a looking man
as one often bees, and they say ho works as
hard as ever."
"He isn't degraded any, then?" aalrffrMr.
Philbrick slyly, as they walked on again, "by
his good fortune."
"I cannot carry out your proposal, it Isnt
in my line. I am a business man and must
work in character. I actually feel as if I bad
made quite a step, for me." 4
"A step!" cried bis companion, eagerly
reaching out to elf tip his hand. "Astride,
only I want you to go clear to the goal."
"I am too slow for you," smiled PhUIp,
sadly, as he shook his head. "What I have
attempted seems enough for one life work,
I don't want to risk it all by a new experi

stood invitingly open, showing the broad
oaken staircase, and still beyond, the table

quite ready to go.
"Tea is all ready," urged Philip, "and I am
"Oh no, my train leaves," be made an ex
cuse to look at his watch, "in half an hour."
Still he hesitated.
At last he laid bis band gently on Philip's
"You are young and have probably a long
life of usefulness before you. But a man
can never tell." Philip looked in surprise at
him. "You may change your mind, or give
up your work; if you should want to, Just let
me know, I would like to buy you out and
run things on my plan."
"But you are not rich enough. You proba
bly know the valuation of the Breton Mills,"
answered PhUip, a little proudly.
"I could pay you something, and you
wouldn't drive too hard a bargain. You
would be glad, perhaps, to contribute in that
Philip burst into a hearty laugh; his hon
est old friend was losing'his wits. Give up
his factory, and his own scheme that was his
only hope in life! But Mr. Philbrick did not
smile. He seemed actually serious and
awaiting an answer.
"WeU, I will giveyou the first chance when
I want to sell."
The old gentleman's earnestness sobered
Philip in spite of himself. He was sorry be
had laughed. Perhaps he had been mocking
his own destiny. The philanthropist's pro
posal began to affect him as a death's head at
a feast He was afraid he could not forget
it Did his friend know him better than he
knew himself f Did he see elements of weak
ness in his character that would be sure to
wreck his beautiful hopes?

Then he looked back at his house again. It
was in that very doorway, open as it was
now, that Bertha had stood and kissed her
hand to him the last time she had been at his
home. That was when his chief thoughts of
life were as a wedding journey that was be

man she did not love enough to stay with
him. Still he could not help that first
tumultuous throb of his heart, the unreason

the very sight of her changed, tired face.
She had done her worst to spoil his life, to
drive peace and happiness from his souL but

"Perhaps it is better so," be said aloud, as
be crashed the fragment of the flower, in his

it was only under the pressure of a great bur

not sympathizing with him, and it had not

hinder his footsteps on the mountain bringing

afternoon that Philip pushed back his chair
from the office table preparatory to going

heavy and completely hid his rather utiar-

changed him so much. His forehead had
some new lines in it and there was, somehow,
a firmer look about the corners of his mouth;
the youth and freshness that had lasted for
twenty-six summers had given place on the
twent3'-seveath. There was a telf poise and

be? He hurried as much as he dared how.
strongly his heart was beating. She might
turn any moment and go into the house. lb
tried to think of what he could say to her if
it was she.
Yes, it was Bertha. Her face was turned
away, showing him only the perfect Greek
profile and tho uncovered coils of her wonder
ful golden hair. Her hand rested on the gate
as she looked off on tho hills. How grand her
thoughts must be to harmonize with the su
perb dignity of her face. Philip felt guilty
at disturbing her, but it had been so long.
Ho came quite near, so near that the mag
netic thrill of her presence touched him more
deeply, mora tenderly, he thought, than of
old, but she had not turned. He saw the p-Uli
of careworn lines across her forehead that
had been as smooth as marble. There was a
faded look ou her cheeks, less full than they
used to Ite, and their exquisite color less
evenly spread. Her hand was whiter and
showed its blue veins almost painfully. His
heart ached over her, his proud Bertha. Why
could not God have spared her! He would
rather have died and saved her tho care and
suffering that had stricken her loveliness.
Then she turned at the sound of footsteps,
and a great wave of tenderness swept over
his soul. He looked at her so eagerly, so
gently that it seemed her face might soften a
little, but it did not, nor was there any mark
of startled surprise at his coming so suddenly
"It is you Philip? Even her voice was
changed, there was a new hardness in it She
reached out her cold white hand to him.
For a moment he did not speak. It seemed
as if his heart would break, there was such a
stress upon it And then he was afraid she
might be ashamed before him, ashamed of
the terrible injustice she hail done him,
ashamed of the blot that had touched her
name. But whatever she might have felt,
there was no sign of any emotion on her im
"Andou are the mill owner now," she
said. "How odd it seems." She smiled
graciously, but still he could not speak. He
could only look down at the thin, blue
veined hand he held, and keep back the sob
that trembled on his lips for his lost love.
And that smile and such words as those
were all she had for him at last He had to
look away for strength to speak. He must
think of some commonplace that would not
startle her repose. Ah! there was the door
way where she hud given him the first ardent
caress of his lifo the last time he had talked
with her, the night she forsook him. Did
she remember, be wondered? He looked
back at the cold, beautiful eyes, and the
amused smile yet lingered on her lips.
"Yes, it does seem very odd."
Tbey Kao What Is Good for Them.
Maj. T. F. Hanson, of Macon. Ga.,
says that the protection sentiment is
growing so in Georgia that if the direct
issue could be made between a Democrat
like Randall and a Democrat like Carlisle,
the former would carry the state by
50,000 majority. They don't like Carlisle
in the south. New York Press.

Worse Tbaa la 1860.
Venerable Hannibal Hamlin, white and
wrinkled with his 80 years, a life long
Republican, vice president with Abraham
Lincoln and beloved and honored by Re
publicans all over the land, was one of
the speakers before the Veteran Republi
can club of Portland, Me., recently held
to commemorate the election of Abraham
Lincoln to the presidency. Mr. Hamlin
began with: "I thank God there is no
vote of mine in thirty-four long years of
congressional life that was not for free
dom." Speaking to the young men pres
ent he begged of them to "shun the Dem
ocratic party as they would a viper. The
Democratic party is not one whit more
patriotic or more honest today than in the
closing days of Buchanan's administra
tion. I do not know but the Democratic
party of today is worse than the Demo
cratic party of 1860."
The Fercherea a Dlstlaot Breed.
For a long time war has been waged
anions the breeders of French draught
horses as to the claim made by Pereheron
breeders that their animals are a distinct
breed and constitute -a separate class.
The contrary opinion sustained was that
all the draught horses of France are sub
stantially of the same breed. To settle
this matter a committee was appointed by
the niinois state board of agriculture
last spring to investigate the subject and
report thereon. This committee sent
communications to best authorities in
France. These authorities unanimously
decided that the Pereheron is a distinct
breed and is the leading draught horse
breed in France. On the report of this
committee the Illinois state board voted
to put the Percheross in a distinct class

Ing, would do well to read the reports- of
the woes of the working women of this
city. One woman testified recently that
she used to make $8 or $9 a week at
cloakmaking. Gradually it got down to
$3. "Then I quit,-' she said.
In East London, in Belgium and iu
Germany hundreds of thousands of women
are glad to earn six shillings, six marks
or six francs at this sort of work half of
$3 per week. The Press Couhjs if they
would "quit" ct 1.50 per week. To
"quit" with them would mean starva
tion. Clothing is too cheap now, Mr. Presi
dent. Trousers are sold in this city as
low as $10.50 per dozen. And yet you
cry out for cheaper clothing for the ro asses.
A further reduction of the tariff means
the transplanting of our enormous cloth
ing factories from this to the other aide
of the Atlantic, and then the quitting
point will be $1.50 instead of $3. What
is most needed is a thorough organization
of these trades, and an agreement iu rela

woman will not go. This, with certain
changes in the tariff preventing the im

woolen goods, might give relief and in

Crystallization of Carbou.
Attempts have been frequently made to
crystallize carbon so as to form the dia
mond; but, though carbon can be crystal
lized, it always appears in the finished
state as graphite (black lead),, and notibe
diamond. These two forms are the most
common, and. in fact, the only two where
carton is known to be crystallized A
discussion by Mr. L. Fletcher on a uodule
of carbon from a meteorite, which fell in'
western Australia, develop the discovery
of carbou, black, and possessing all thei
attributes of graphite, but crystallized In
small cubes. No such precedent has been
established, and therefore this may be re
garded as a third crystal form for carbon.
The discovery has particular interest, as
tbl form has never been observed on any
terrestrial specimen of carbon, but only
in this nodule of extra terrestrial origin.
