Alabastine produces exquisitely
beautiful effects on walls and ceil

with cold water. Better than kalso

kalsomine, it is a sanitary, perman

on the walls, destroying disease
germs and vermin, never rubbing or
scaling. Kalsomtnes mixed with
either hot or cold water soon rub
and scale-off. spoiling walls, clothing

THE MISSING MAN
By MARY R. P. HATCH
Author of -The Bank Tragedy"
Copyright. 1893. by tee and Sfcepard
A Green-Haired Woman.
Amos Talbert, the comfortable, gen
ial landlord of the Essex House, had
a wife and daughter; the latter tin
married, though not of uncertain age,
as she had not the least objection to
any one's knowing that she was forty
two. With her bright complexion,
brighter eyes and manners, she was
one of the most attractive ladles in
I Grovedale, and it was no task, there-
icre, ior Mrs. Hamilton to chat with
her for a few moments.
"Have you many guests in the house
now?" she asked Miss Talbert
"Very few steady boarders, but a
good many 'transients.'"
"I wonder if the green-haired lady is
gone yet." said Miss Chase, looking
up from her work with a smile.
"Yes, she went on the seven o'clock
"On the train with my husband,"
thought Mrs. Hamilton; hut you may
be sure she did not say this.
Instead she repeated wonderingly,
as she looked at Miss Talbert with po
lite interest, "a green-haired lady!"
"I am not surprised at your sur
prise," said Miss Talhert, laughing.
"You would wonder still more if you
were to see her. She came on the
train last night and went away this
"But you don't mean to say her hair
is actually green, do you?"
"Not a bright, vivid green, but a
sheeny emerald tint hard to describe.
The sea takes on such a color some
times in the shadow of an overhanging
cliff. You should see it, Mrs. Hamil
ton. She is very pretty, has lovely
features, and a sweet voice. I was
quite charmed by her."
"I think she knows Mr. Hamilton,"
said the dressmaker, "for she ran out
to meet him when he came down the
"Ah! perhaps you know her, too,"
said Miss Talbert. looking at Mrs.
Hamilton. "Her name was booked as
Mrs. Anderson. Newark, N. J."
"No, I do not," she answered, "and
I have never heard my husband speak
of a green-haired acquaintance."
This statement in regard to the
meeting cf her husband and the green
haired lady coincided with the glimpse
she had of it from her tower, though
at that distance she had not noticed
the color of her hair. An accidental
meeting, evidently; but they went on
in the same train together, perhaps in
the same car. If friends, undoubtedly
they rode together. Well, what of
that? Friends meet each ether at ev
ery turn. Her husband might in the
past have done.the woman a kindness
or some little service. It would be
like him. He would tell her all about
it on his return.
And. with a pleasant adieu to Miss
Chase. Mrs. Hamilton went awaj.
Site called at the Savings Bank in
'I just want to see
passing, and Tony Osborn, with his
pen behind his ear, came at once to
speak to her.
"Good morning, Tony; very busy, I
"Awful, now Ham Mr. Hamilton is
"Did he tell you just when to expect
him back what day, I mean?" asked
"Xo. In a week or two, he said.
But it's all a joke about my 'being
busy, you know, for everything was
put in shape before he went."
"I'm glad to hear you are not driv
en." said Mrs. Hamilton, reflecting
that her husband always cleared the
way for others, but took the roughest
path himself. And then she went on
her way. She met Mr. Henderson,
who stopped to speak to her, and to
ask when her husband would be back.
"Only been away six hours and we
miss him already! No one can man
age like Vane. In a week or two?
Yes. that's what he told me. But, by
George; he never told me where he
was going. Strange! Always goes
off in May. Of course you know."
She murmured something about Bos
ton and rest.
"He needs it, by George! Hope hell
get it. I shall need a rest when he
gets back. Our business grows, Mrs.
Hamilton. It's double what it was two
years ago. Didn't realize it while
Vane was here."
"He works too hard, Mr. Hender
son. "I know it. Your uncle and I are
old fogies, and lazy to boot We put
too much on his shoulders. I told him
so this morning. 'Carter,' says I,
'Vane's been -working too hard. 'I
know it.' says he. 'Vane has lost
twenty pounds lately."
"Is that so?" asked Constance,
"So your uncle said. S'posed you
knew it. Well, this will never do,
ntccr'jur to talk to pretty women when
business is booming at the mill," and
the jolly mill-owner passed on, leaving
Constance to pursue her way home
ward. How hollow the house sounded!
How still it was! What would life be
without husband or children? Grim
walls, staring pictures, lifeless furni
ture do not make home, she realized
forcibly as she sank into a chair and
folded her gloved hands on her lap.
"Two weeks pass so quickly," she
murmured. "Sometimes I can scarce
ly realize they have passed. When
he conies back I shall ask him all
about it I have never done it but I
win now. Secrets ought not to come
between man and wife. I will tell him
so. They might make trouble. They
do sometimes. Mr. Henderson thinks
"strange. I could see that, and "
if,f Hl4d hH? I
does Tony. I must tell Vane about
it when he comes back."
As you may imagine, with such con
tradictory thoughts, and so much
alone, Constance did not find the days
very swift in passing. Indeed, they
lagged terribly, though she made calls,
practiced her music and did sundry
odd jobs of sewing, the accumulation
of the winter months.
To add to her anxiety she did not
receive one word from her husband.
Meanwhile, she had seen and talked
with Mrs. Fry about the green-haired
lady. Mrs. Fry brought to Mrs. Ham
ilton a basket of freshly ironed mus
lins the day after Mr. Hamilton's de
parture, and immediately launched
forth in a description of the green
"The queerest sight! though there's
no denyin she's a dreadful pretty
"I caqnot see how a woman with
green hair can be pretty," said Mrs.
"You would the moment you saw
her. But you can ask Mr. Hamilton.
He saw her and knew her, too, I
"Are you sure?"
"She spoke to him. Twas jest as
I was a coram to the laundry an' he
a comin down the street to take the
trainf 'You here?' she says. 'You
are mistaken,' says he. 'Oh, yes,' she
says, 'I did think an' she looked
round at me. Mr. Hamilton looked
at her pretty close, as if sort of think
in or studyin of her face, an then he
spoke again, but what it was he said I
didn't hear, because, of course, twan't
none of my business. Besides, he
spoke too low."
"Probably she was Insane."
"No, I guess not. She seemed kind
er troubled, though, and folks in
trouble always go to such folks as
your folks. Or else she knew him.
Whichever 'twas, she was a nice,
modest woman, an' a dreadful pretty
What Mrs. Fry told her was but lit
tle more than Constance had already
heard, but it gave her much to think
about for several days, Indeed, until a
week had passed. But at the end of
that time an incident occurred which
surprised and alarmed her not a lit
tle. One morning, hearing the door-bell
ring, Mrs. Hamilton opened it her
self, Tilly being busy, and was sur
prised to see Tony Osborn standing
there, idly flicking the dust from his
boot with a small cane.
"Ah. good morning, Mrs. Hamilton.
! Jolly weather, isn't it?"
"Very pleasant. Will you come in,
"Thanks, no. I just want to see
"Mr. Hamilton! Surely you have
forgotten that he is away."
"But hasn't he got home?"
"Certainly not I don't expect him
for a week."
"He was at the bank last night,
Mrs. Hamilton. Of that, I am cer
tain." "Then where can he be now?"
'I don't know. I supposed he was
here, and I called over to see him as
he didn't come to the bank. Perhaps
he is at the mill."
"Without coming home. Tony?"
Young Osborn bit his lips and
thought deeply, but each moment grew
"Did you speak to him?" asked Mrs.
"Yes, and he spoke to me. Bank
ing hours are over at four, you know.
and it was just alter dark that I saw
him going into the bank as I was
passing. 'Hullo!' I said. It was the
first thing I thought to say, for I was
surprised to see him so soon. 'Hullo,'
he said, and laughed a little. 'Didn't
expect me back so soon, did you?'
'No, I said, I didn't' Then he went
in and shut the door after him, and I
"Tony, that couldn't have been Mr.
"It certainly was. It was his voice
I heard, and his form, features, gait,
everything. I couldn't have been mis
taken." "Tony," said Mrs. Hamilton, in a
low, terrified voice, "I am afraid you
have been deceived. It must have
fceen a burglar."
"Oh, no, there isn't the least doubt
in the world that it was Mr. Hamilton;
cone at all."
"Was everything right this morn
"No, nothing at all. AH that sur
prises me is that he isn't here."
"He would certainly have been if he
had come home. That . makes me
think you have been deceived."
For answer Tony took from his vest
pecket a small shirt-stud of unique
design and handed it to Mrs. Hamil
ton. "I found it on the desk just as it
would have fallen if it had become
loosened from his shirt front"
"Ob;. Tony! What does it mean?"
cried Mrs. Hamilton, with white lips.
"What can it mean? It is his. I gave
him the set myself, and had them
marked with his initials. See, this is
"I noticed It" said Tony, quietly,
"and I was sure it was his. Now,
how did it happen to be on his desk
this ' morning, unless it dropped out
"Perhaps it was laid there, unno
ticed, since he went away."
"Impossible. I have dusted and
nnr ovarrthing Ib nrtfer daily.
Tony's habits of order were incon
trovertible. "Cannot you recollect
1 whether he spoke of missing one be
fore he went away, Mrs. Hamilton?"
j "No, te said nothing about missing
j "Then you will find that I am right,"
said Tony. "Mr. Hamilton was at the
bank last night at about eight o'clock.
He must have been " detained some
where,, and will, no dcubt, be here
shortly. You may expect to see him
coming up the street at any moment,"
he concluded, reassuringly, for he saw
that she was terribly shaken.
"I hope you are right, but I have
felt worried ever since he went away."
"Oh, he's all right, sound as a
trump. I wouldn't worry, if I were
you." and Tony went down the stairs,
but paused to ask, "Shall I go around
to the mill and ask Mr. Carter if he
has seen anything of him?"
"Yes, please do, and ask Uncls Car
ter to come up to see me, if Vane isn't
"All right." and he turned away. "1
wi6h everything were all right, but
I'm afraid it isn't," he muttered.
(To be continued.)
DANGER OF DUST IN MINES.
Peril is Pointed Out on a Paper by a
At a recent meeting of mining en
gineers held in Leeds. W. H. Picker
ing, British mining inspector, read a
paper on "The Dust Danger." The im
portance of dust as a factor in colliery
explosions was. he said, now generally
recognized and understood. Provis
ions had been introduced in the coal
mine regulation act regulating the use
of explosives in dry and dusty places
and the "explosives-in-coal-mines" or
der had been it sued by the home sec
retary In a few mines dust was systemati
cally laid by watering, but no wide
spread effort had been made to strike
at the root of the danger. Permitted
explosives were only relatively safe,
for each one of them was capable of
initiating an explosion under certain
conditions, and it could not be too
often repeated and emphasized that a
dust explosion could be started in
other ways than by an explosive.
Ignition of fire-damp might result from
a naked lamp or from a damaged or
defective lump or from a spark from
a pick or an electric spark, and this
might be magnified by dust into a
great explosion. Dust also increased
the danger of underground fires. i
Obviously, the only way of remedy
ing the danger was to keep the mines
free from coal dust by cutting off the
supply or by other means. As long as
dusty roads were allowed in the mines
the coal industry was under the dark
shadow ofa coming great disaster.
The looming danger was recognized
by all and he submitted that this pe
riod of peace and immunity was the
time to take practical' steps to avoid
the danger. He believed a discussion
would show that it was reasonably
practicable to keep moist mines com
paratively free from dust that was
dangerous and this freedom would
conduce to safety and to health and
comfort as well.

replied the young woman, pleasantly.
"Why. I am a director in the bank

quite well known in politics over my

"Did you say you are a politician?"
asked the cashier. "Oh. a sort of a

sumption. Tho story told by scores of victims of
the grip is substantially the same. Oue
was tortured by terrible pains at tho
base of the skull; another was left tired,
faint and iu every way wretched from
anreinin or scantiness of blood; another
had horrible headaches, was nervous mid
couldn't sleep; another wns left with
weak lungs, difficulty in breathing and
acnto neuralgia. Iu every case relief
was sought iu vain until the great blood
bnilder and nerve-tonic, Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, was used. For quickness nud
thoroughness of action nothing is kuowu
that will approach it.
Mrs. Vnu Scoy makes a statement that
supports this claim. She says :
"I had a severe attack of grip and, be
fore I had fully recovered, rheumutism
set in and tormented mo for threo
months. I was iu a badly run-down
state. Soon af tor it begun I was so Inuie
for a week that I could haftlly walk. It
kept growing steadily worse and at last
I had to give up completely and for
three weelw I was obliged to keep my
bed. -My knees were so stiff I couldn't
bend them, and my bauds were iwrfectly
helpless. Then the pains began to
threaten my heart nud thoroughly
While I was suffering in this way I
chanced to run across a little book that
told about the merits of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. The statements in it im
pressed me unified me to buy n box. These
pills proved the very thing I needed.
Improvement set iu as soon as I began
to take them, and it was very marked by
the time I had finished the first box.
Four boxes made me a well woman."
Mrs. Laura M. Vnn Scoy lives at No.
20 Thorpe street, Danbury, Conn. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills are equally well
adapted for any other of the diseases that
follow iu the 'train of grip. They are
old by all druggists.

Women of the Kaffirs.
The Kaffirs believe that a woman is
a necessary appendage to a house
hold; the women care for their huts
and do all the housework, while the
men watch the cattle. They do not
always marry as young as they like,
and yet the youngest and most at
tractive girls often go to the ugly, old
men with plenty of money. A man
is not worried because he cannot win
the favor of the girl he wants. Her
likes and dislikes count for little.
Bring Messages from Dead.
There is a curious burial custom
among the Mordovinians, who inhabit
the middle Volga provinces of Russia

believe that a deceased relative forty

the next of kin personates him. dress
ed in his clothes, and professes to de
liver solemn messages from the other
side of the grave.

WHAT HIS EXPERIENCE PROVED.
In the early sixties it was usually tho
duty of a practicing physician to" rid
many miles every dav on his regular
round of visits upon bis patients. In
thoaedays a young man who li:ul received
a splendid medical training in one of the
best medical colleges of tliat day was ac
customed to ride ten. twenty or thirtv
miles or more visiting the sick and
alllictcd. His success was soon phenom

consultation to towns at considerable, dis

the cure of those digressing diseases of
