Such a mite as it was, to be sure!
Such absuitl little hands that flew here
and there, now after a dancing sun
lam, now clutching the bright, round,
brass buttons of the officer's great coat
What eyes, like twin sapphires, that
t-ninkled and gleamed so softly antler
the brown lashes! How tiny the white-s-hod
reel that kicked against the wide
chair, In which the policeman had
placed its royal babyship!
"Guess you ain't acquainted with
I olice stations," said the sergeant, "but
you seem pretty much at home, just
the same."
"Cudga, cmlga, cudga," it answered.
"Da-da, da-da. dada."
"Ve hear all sorts of languages here,
but we don't seem to understand you,"
iemarked one of the officers. Then,
turning to a fellow-policeman, he
asked: "Where did you find the kid?"
"I didn't. It found me. I guess its
mammy was a-shoppin and it must
have walked out of a store. Anyhow,
I never caught sight of it until it trotted
oirt ml? the street and took hold o' my
hand. I waited round with it a long
time, hopin' its mammy would come
for it. and then I brought it here."
"Blame me, if it ain't the dandiest
youngster I ever clapped eyes on!" put
in the sergeant, as the absurd little
hand patted the silver star on the ser
geant's coat.
"Seems to be well togged out, too;
ain't no ordinary, everyday kid, judgin'
l)y its clothes."
' The object of this conversation now
held up its short little arms and wrin-
kled up its face. The tiny lips began

"Blamed if I dare hold you!" said the
sergeant. "I'd break you somewhere or
let you drop and then where'd you be?"
"Da-da, da-da-da, cudga, cudga," it
answered. The sergeant stooped and
' looked into the sapphire eyes. The

-.-irtt!e arms closed around the red, fat
neck and the tiny mouth smiled in baby
happiness. The sergeant's big awk
ward hands gathered the bundles of
white cashmeres and lace up into a
clumsy heap and its babyship cooed
haprily over the shoulder of the blue-

as to do an awkward sort of a shuffling

loud and hilarious fit of laughing.
Few lest children (and many were
brought there to the dusty, smoky station-house)
reccn ed so much attention.
They usually howled lustily or sat with
scared, frightened faces in terrified
. silence, until they were turned over
to the police matron to await the com
ing of the always frantic parents. But
this small, sapphire-eyed, gurgling,
cooing bit of humanity was an aston
ishing exception to the rule. It not
only made itself perfectly at home, but
recognized that it was among friends,
and therefore exhibited its good nature
and cunning expressions of happiness
and satisfaction. By and by, it bad
passed from one officer to another nntil
each one had had the honor of seeing
"the chubby fingers dabble and play
with .the brass buttons and glittering
"Old Dougherty was the last one to
whose care its babyship was given. He
put it on the floor and the white shoes
pattered up and down the room while
the "goo-gco-goo" continued, as if the
babe were anxious to have its entire
. audience completely aware that 'while
the tongue was not educated, the mall
feet were accomplished.
"I'll bet my hat," ventured the ser
geant, as he looked through his wire
cage. Til bet my hat it will be A
mighty scared woman that Comes (of
this kid."
"I'd give tne month's salary." caW
Dougherty, "be jabers, if Oi bad its
loike." Then brushing his gray beard
against the pink cheek, he took up the
bundle of white stuff and carried it to
the window, where the sapphire eyes
looked out and blinked merrily at the
passers-by. The sergeant sniffled and
blew his nose vigorously. He had sud
denly remembered that, many years
ago, Dougherty had lost his three chil
dren In some frightful accident.
The plump fingers ran along the win
dow glass and the white-hooded head
nodded at the stream of people that
hurried by. But no one noticed, and
Dougherty was aboul to plan some new
amusement, when a well-dressed man
caught sight of the baby's face and then,
nervous and excited, ran into the sta-
"How came this child here?" he de
manded, almost fiercely, as he took the
little creature into his arms and pressed
kisses on the dimpled fists. "1 am the
child'8 father. Tell me, quickly, how
came she here?"
"Number 746 found It in the middle
of the street," answered the sergeant,
referring to the register. "It was at
the corner of S and M . in the
busiest part of the shopping district.
"My God! It's a wonder she wasn't
crushed to death by the cars or trampled
under horses hoofs."
There was a hurried opening of the
station house door, the rustle of silk
en skirts, and a white-faced, trembling
woman appeared. At the sight of the
man and child, she etood as if too be
wildered and paralyzed to speak. Then,
the bundle of lace and the white hood
and the small shoes began to squirm,
and, in another moment the baby was
running toward its mother, who now
was softly weeping. She clasped the
child in her arms, and the sergeant
noticed that Dougherty drew his rough
sleeve over his eyes and then hurriedly
left the room.
It seemed strange, thought the ser
geant, that the mother and the father
of the child appeared so distant. He
was still more bewildered when the
child's father lifted his hat and said:
"Shall I take Muriel to the carri
age?" and the mother answered, half
"If you will be so kind."
Then they thanked the sergeant for
his kindness and passed out into the
At the carriage door the man assisted
his wife into the vehicle and then
handed the baby to her. She nodded
her head in silent thanks. He again
lifted his hat and was soon lost In the
crowd of passers-by.
That night a woman with a heavy.
sorrowful heart knelt by the side of her
baby's cradle and wept b:tteily.
For the first time in several weeks
she had been face to face with the man
whom she had loved and married; the
man whose child she had cared for so
tenderly, with true motherly affection
and devotion.
Had she but taken the opportunity to
bid him return; had she but begged htm
to end the wretchedness of the past
month! Had her lips but obeyed the
commands of her heart could she for
once have murdered her pride and ex
tended hr hand to him! How different
might their future be!
Such thoughts flew through her mind
with agonizing, tormenting quickness.
There was no world outside her own
heavy heart. Her head fell among the
down coverlets of the cradle and she
sobbed aloud.
She did not hear the soft step behind
her. She did not know that some one
had entered the room until au arm was
about her and a beseeching voice was
"Clare! wife! I have returned to beg
forgiveness. Please be friends again;
I cannot exist without you please
"It was such a silly quarrel, wasn't
it. dear?" she said, struggling closer to
him and raising her wet eyes to his.
"and yet we were so stubborn I'm sure
we'll never quarrel again, and even if
we do, you won't go away, will you,
and we won't wait a whole month to
make up, will we?"
The tiny creature in the cradle
moved. The small arms reached out
and clutched at the silken hangings of
the canopy. Two sapphire eyes opened
and looked at the man and woman to
whom the happiness of renewed love
had come.
A Cnrloas Conrt Scene.
A strange scene was that which took
place in a San Francisco court room one
day this week. Mrs. Virginia McMullin
had brought suit for maintenance
against her husband, Thurlow McMull
in. They were married in 1S71. A
son was born to them in 1S73 and they
separated in 1S77. During all these
years they have remained apart and
the son testified to this effect. His
father was seated a few feet from him
but the son swore that he had never
seen him to know him. "I may have
passed him on the street.' said the son,
"but I never knew it if I did." In the
evidence it also came out that the
father was employed in Tillman &.
Bendell's and the son in Baker &. Ham- '
ilton's, two business houses only a few
blocks apart. It seems extraordinary

Put the earth up there in the place of
Jupiter and the naked eye would with
difficulty be abie to see it. Jupiter is
1,300 times larger than the earth in bulk
or volume, and its surface area exceeds
tha.t of the earth about 120 times.
It would seem as if the ancients must
have had some inkling of the fact that
'that planet is the largest of all tne
worlds that revolve around the sun
when they bestowed upon it the name
of the greatest of the gods.
We have almost no evidence what
ever touching of the nature of the ma
terials of Jupiter. The spectroscore
cannot aid us, because Jupiter does not
shine by its own light, and the sunlight
reflected from it comes from the upper
surface of its dense clouds, and conse
quently makes no revelations concern
ing what lies beneath.
But the telescope shows that Jupiter
is covered with wonderful clouds con
tinually changing in shape, and mure
or less In color; that these clouds float
in an atmosphere of great depth, and
that they form perhaps successive I'iy-
if (uir&fliu.
ers of varying density, which may oe
separated by comparatively olnar
spaces. Appearances havjj been noticed
on Jupiter such as would be produced
by the shadowg of great clouds, a
broad as some of our continent!", falling
upon otherclouds floating hundreds of
miles beneath them.
If these appearances are not decep
tive Jupiter's clouds evidently float at.
proportionally, a far greater elevation
than those of the earth. The "highest
of our clouds are, perhaps, ten miles
above the earth; the loftiest clouds on
Jupiter may be a thousand miles high.
And these tremendous clouds are
swept along by belts of wind that arc
no less wonderful. Jupiter turns very
fast on its axis, notwithstanding its
enormous size. It takes less than ton
hours to make a complete rotation.
while the little earth requires twenty
four hours. On the equator of Jupiter
everything is flying around at the rate
of 4o0 miles in a minute! The resulting
centrifugal strain is so great that the
equatorial parts of the vast planet
bulge and swell out thousands of miles.
Jupiter is more than 5,000 miles
broader through its equator than
through its poles!
All things must there experience a
powerful and resistless tendency urg
ing them toward the equator. If the
planet turned about three times faster
than it does, objects would weigh noth
ing at all along the equator.
The effect of this fearful velocity of
rotation is shown by the streaks and
lins of clouds that the telescope re
veals surrounding Jupiter. At one
place in the southern hmisphere there
is an immense, mysterious, fiery-looking
mass, as large in extent as the
whole curface of the earth, which dur
ing the past eighteen years has been
thrust up among the rushing and tum
bling clouds in one of the great trade
wind belts of Jupiter. By actual ob
servation the clouds are hurled against
the western end of that mysterious ob- t
approached. Great globe-shaped
masses, gleaming in the sunlight, rrll
and pitch in the mighty onward cur
rents. Through the comparatively
clear spaces glimpses are obtained of
other cloudlands deep beneath, filled
with other strange hurrying shapes, all
whirling madly on as if racing for a
goal. Whatever else may or may not
be said of Jupiter, at any rate, it is pre
eminently the world of clouds and
windj and tempests.
Can we, then, imagine inhabitants in
such a world of turmoil and unrest "as
! Jupiter is? It depends entirely upon
what we mean by inhabitants. It is
evident that such beings as we are could
not live there, unless it is true that
deep beneath Jupiter's world of clouds
and cyclones is hidden another globe
resembling the earth. On such a globe,
sd placed; inhabitants mor flr less like
those of this earth could iive: .
The great many-storied dome of
clouds above them would, perhaps, be
just what they needed in order to ob
tain a- comfortable degree of heat in
their far-away planet. For we must
remember that Jupiter is about five
times as far from the sun as the earth
is, and that, consequently, the sunlight
and the sunhcat on Jupiter arc twenty
five times less effective than on the
This is because the intensities of
light and heat varj inversely as the
square of the distance.
"With a comparatively open and
cloudless atmosphere like ours the heat
from the sun would quickly be lost by
being radiated away into space, and the
inhabitants of Jupiter would shiver and
freeze in a worse than Arctic climate.
But with such an atmosphere as they.
have surrounding them It is not im
probable that the effect 6f the greater
distance of the sun may be compen
sated by the capacity of the atmosphere
itself to retain and, so to speak, entrap
the heat for the benefit of the inhabi
tants. But all this argument proceeds upon
the assumption that such inhabitants
must be framed of just such materi.ils.
possessing just sucli density as compose
our bodies. Manifestly that assump
tion is purely gratuitous. As we Tiave
already seen, the average density of
things in Juriter is much less than up
on the earth, and we are not certain
that its constituent materials may not
be as widely variant in nature from
those of our planet.
Wc have perfect justification, then,
for assuming, if we choose, that the in
habitants of Jupiter are shaped from
substances very different from, and
much more ctherial than, ihose
that compose our bodies. That argu
ment would not in any manner
affect the spiritual or intellectual side
of their nature. There is no demon
strable reason why an intelligent being
might not be made out of something else
than the water and carbon and other
elements comprised in the human
If we accept the .ieV that the spirit
of man. which is the real essence of his
being, is of a nature and composition so
fine as to transcend all the coarper laws
that govern the visible world; then
is there any reason why upon a planet
liko JupitPi- such a spirit may not b en
closed in a body as tenuous as vapor
even, or as light as cork?
Grant that, and it is easy to see that,
no matter how much greater the force
of gravity may be upon Jupiter than
upon the earth, mortal beings could be
formed, even out of the range of nat
ural elements known to us. who might
be suitably proportioned to gravitation,
even though they should attain a com
parative stature as gigantic in relation
to ours as the stature of Jupiter him
self is when placed tide by side with
the little earth.
Not only is there something far
more satisfactory to the imagination in
conceiving of gigantic inhabitants
dwelling upon so stupendous a world,
rather than in thinking of them as mere
pigmies, but in thus considering them
as giants amid gigantic surroundings,
we do less violence to the general order
of nature.
Let me, as a kind of apology for thus
venturing into the fields of imagination
that lie glittering just beyond the farth
est outposts of science, quote what one
of the founders of modern science has
said about the possible inhabitants of
another great world, only less in size
than Jupiter, and which now also
adorns our evening skies, Saturn.
These are the words of Sir Huhphrey
Davy, in the chapter called "The Vis
ion" in his beautiful "Consolation in
Travel, cr the I.ast Days of a Philoso
pher." Conducted by a guiding Genius
he is hovering above the planet Saturn:
"I saw moving on the surface below
me immense masses, the forms of which
I find it impossible to describe. They
had systems for locomotion similar to
those of the morse or sea-horse, but I
saw with great surprise that they moved
from place to place by six extremely
tnin meoranes, wnich they used as
wings. Their colors were varied and
beautiful, but principally azure and
rose color.
"I say numerous convolutions of
tubes more analogous to the trunk of an
elephant than to anything else I can
imagine, occupying what I supposed to
be the upper parts of the body, and my
feeling of astonishment almost became
one of disgust from the peculiar char
acter of the organs of these singular be
ings, and it was with a species of ter
ror that I saw one of them mounting
upward, apparently flying towards
those opaque clouds which I have be
fore mentioned. 'I knowwhat your feel
ings are,' caid the Genius. 'You want
analogies and all the elements of knowl
edge to comprehend the scene before
you. But those beings who
appear to you almost as imperfect in
their functions as the zoophytes of the
polar sea have a sphere of sensibility
and intellectual enjoyment far superiar
to that of the inhabitants of your earth.
Each of those tubes which appear like
the trunk of an elephant Is an organ of
peculiar motion or sensation. They

Inspired by the enthusiasm of Sir
Humphrey may we not imagine that
&., inhabitants of Jupiter might sur
pass even those of Saturn on their In
tellectual side, shedding a spiritual il
lumination among their aerial man
sions, which would be the greatest of
all Jupiter's marvels to the watidcfing

czar's unwillingness to go even to a

did also Stambouloff and Crlspi. The
Italian premier, indeed, as we have

from the issaslsa's ballet or knife a
light shirt of mail of double thickness
over the heart. None of these men,
however, resorted to such precaution
until repeated attempts at assassina

"uneasy lies the head that wears a

waited for no such attempt on his life.
Ever since the fast arrests of nihilist

From the Time?, Oswego. N. T.
Probably no man Is better known or
more highly respected in Oswego, X. T.,
than the HeV. WHam Young, of the
Methodist church. Mr. Young holdB a
responsible position with the Oswego
City Savings Bank, where he has been
an employe for the past twenty years.
In the spring Of 1894 Mr. Young
looked as If his time on earth was lim
ited but. Instead of failing aa was pre
dicted, he soon gained a more healthy
look and appeared stronger. As the
months went by this Improvement con
tinued, until flow he Is as rugged and
apparently as healthy as a young man
Of thirty, although his gray locks de
note a more advanced age. A Times
reporter, determined to find out what
had made this great change, called
upon Mr. Young at the bank and put
the question djrect and received the
following reply:
"In truth I am a changed man. and I
Owe tay present good health to Dr. Wil
liams' Plnh Pills. In the spring of
1894 I was all run down and had com
menced to think that my time had
come. 1 had to be prescribed for by
physlclans. aKd although I received
temporary relief, the Sam- old trouble
came back again and I was worse than
before. I bad no strength or appetite,
and physically I was id a miserable
eondltion. After my work I would go
home, but the general lassitude which
hung over tee left me without any am
bition, and when 1 would go to the table
to eat, my appetite failed me and I
would have to leave without taking
hardly any nourishment. My kidneys
Were also badly affected, and I was In
httef despair. One day. here at the
batik, 1 happened to pick up one of the
local papers, and my eye fell on the ad
vertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
The advertisement gre a description
of a man who. afflicted an I then was.
had been cured by using Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. I was not a believer In that
kind of doctoring, but concluded as a
last resort to try a box of the pills, mak
ing up my flllftd that if they did not
help me I certainly would not be in
jured any. Going to a drug store I pur
chased a box of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and commenced taking them ac
cording to directions. Very soon after
I began to feel better and I saw I had
made no mistake 1ft trying the pills, and
before the first box was emptied I ff It
so much Improved that I immediately
purchased another. I had taken sven
boxes of the pills, and at the end of last
summer I felt I was entirely cured and
discontinued their use, but always keep
ft box handy if occasion requires. I
am now entirely cured. The lassitude
has left me. my kidneys are all rlht
and my appetite well, you should see
me at the tabl. I am a new man
again, and Instead of feeling like a man
of fifty, which Is my age. I feel liko a.
youngster of twenty, and I give Pink
Pills the full credit for this great
change. I have recommended these" pills
to several of my neighbors and ac
quaintances, who have been relieved of
their complaints."

Gen. Grant, while walking out in the
suburbs of Washington, frequently
met a butcher driving a horse, to
which he took a strong liking. After
much negotiation he bought the animal,
and had it taken to his stable, where
one day Senators Conkling and Jones
were invited to look at the new pur
chase "Well, gentlemen, how do you
like the new horse?" asked Grant, after
the animal had been inspected. "How
much did you give for him, Mr. Presi
dent?" asked Conkling. "Four hun
dred dollars." "I'd rather have the
fonr hundred dollars than the horse."
rejoined Conkling. "That's what the
butcher thought," coolly remarked
Grant, puffing out a cloud of smoke;
"put him back into the stall, John."
