I sereamed, I shrieked for ~'l~om. It was. of course, utterly rattling down the ravine. Two horses frantle with terror, with a wagon-- our wagon--fell at the bottom, and scrambled to their fact.while Tom him- self was thrown directly at my feet. as if in direct answer re my prayer. Bnt he did not stir: his face was pale as death, and his eyes closed. - In that moment all my petty Jeal- onsy vanished, amt I threw my arms about him. trying to lift him from the ground. IIe was like a log. and I be- lieved lain dead. Then I fahited again. ~Vlten I returned to eonscionsness once more the storm lind passed, leaving tim skies an blue us eve,'; but desola- tion was on every side.

I ne, d not umlertake to tell you "our convernaiion, i ronlember it per- fectly, but it is sac/'ed to both of us, even now. ohl and stahl as we are. But when we finally were ready to disentangle ourselves from the deliria in the ravine.,Tom and I stood nearer to each other titan ever before. Near- er because of our terrible proximity to death, and because my foolish and unwarrantable behavior had well-nigh separated us- forever. The horses were unhurt, though un- able to extrleate themselves, and it was some tlnm before Tom could re- lair the wagon so that we could go ou. It had been blown ap ngalnsl: a tree and broken: but Tom followed the good ohl fashion of those days, of car- rying plenty of stout string in his pock- ets, and so was able to mend up the broken places where it was necessary, ~Ie he actually carried up the ravine where he could place me In the wagon; my ankle bad swollen frightfully, and pained me exceedingly, besides. ".Now," he said.~gettlng into the wagon himself. "'we must burry. I've got to meet Teeule, though the heavens fall:" anti he gave me a comical glance. He hadn't explained who "Teenie" wan. nor did I ,.are to ask. After the experien,~s of the last twenty min- utes my Jealousy looked to me inex- pressl~fly contemptible. "We meant it for a surprlne to yon. dear." Tom said presently. "but perhaps I'd better tell you. Ym~ don't guess who 'Tee- ale" is, foolish little girl?" I~ shook my head. "Tom. ! don't care: I trust you DOW. ntterly!" "Then I Inust tell you that It was the old pet name by whlch I called Ade- h~lde Saunderson. I hadn't thought of it. for yearn before, nor. do I suppose, had she: but she resurrected the name for the oecaMon. She is coming for a Iwo months" stay and was especially anxious that you should not be told. as she wanted to surprise you. I guess shehas. Anyway, you mwprlsed me!" "Don't. Tom." I sobbed. Tom drew me eloser. "Vuder the circumstances, I didn't wast to let it go so: but she was very strenuons, and Adelaide is so Intense that I had to let her have her way. When I read your note I could haye killed myself for allowing It. Forgive me. Josie,'" and Tom's voice grew. very temler. "Forgiw, you? Oh. Tom!" I sobbed, "when I was so dreadful!" "There. there!' he said. soothingly. "Let's call it square. Besides. we're ahnost there: and I can't delve np to the station wlth your eyes in tl~t con- dltiou. I'm afraid Adelaide will think it wasn't much of it success--her sur- prise.'" I wiped up as well as I could, al. thougll I fear Adelaide received a rather tearful welconie, after all. Adelaide Sannderson was Tom's cousin, and had always taken tl~e place of the slster he never had. I don't know What I should have done with. out "Teenie," as we began ealliug her again: for my baby was born the next morning, and my own life hung 1~ the balance a long time after.

A seientlfle expedtti~m is to go from the United States to Patagonia In search of a giant sloth.

The decrease of pleasure cycling be- gan to be noticeable two years ago, but it was much more marked this past summer. The bicycle Is now used mainly fc: business purpbses. It is becoming a greater utility in lhe ar- mies' of the world, and its value in municipal police service is admitted- ly very great. But as a pleasure ma- chine the bicycle has seen its best days. The Philadelpl~ia Ledger otmerves: "Public opinion has an immense influ- ence. and each one of us ts helping to form it. Even now It stamps with disgrace the man who uses his physi- cal strength to attack the life. prop- erty, or liberty of another; let it also frown down that man who, with a power of mind and will capable of benefiting the commnnlty, yet employs it in the interest of self alone, or for purposes of injustice and oprreesion under whatever disguise they may as- sume." Sturgeon fishing, which la earried on more largely in the Delaware River ahd Bay than elsewhere in the United States, is in danger of extinctl0a, ac- cording to a recent report of the United States Fish Commission. There has been a decline in produetion from 1948 kegs in 1897 to an estimate of about 700 kegs in 1899, while the price per keg was advanced in fifteen years from $9 to $105. The larger profits of the industry for years have come from what might be called the by= product, the roe, which Is the basis of caviare, the Russian delicacy. The Delaware fishermen obtain better prices In foreign markets than at home, and much of the caviare brought: into this country from Europe has crossed the Atlantic once before in pine casks.

The flesh flies produce living young, the eggs being retained until hatched when the young are deposited upon decaying flesh, wounds and sores being choice locations, Each female ean deposit tens of thousands of these nmggots, and. as they grow rapidly, and as they grow force themselves into the sores, the situation soon be- comes serious.

Crude coal oil has been used successfully upon both man and beast, serving the double purpose of healing and of keeping the enemy off.

Roe tells an amusing story of the first lesson which she and her brother ever recited In Roman history. Among our most lored and honored guests, during our childhood, was Dr. Samuel Cox. for many years a promi- nent clergyman in New York. At times our conversation turned on history,aud I remember, on one occasion, he asked Edward and me if we could give him the names of the First Roman Trium- virate. At this perlod of our existence the name "Caesar" was associated exclu- sively with an old colored ma~, whoin we often visited, and who lived upon a lonely road in the neighborhood. We were vastly astonished, therefore, to learn that the name had ever been borne by a more illustrious person than our dusky friend; but we list- ened entranced to the story of the ri- valries of Caesar and Pompey for the empire of' the world. Unhappily the good doctor co'uld not remember .the name of the third trium- vir, and the lack troubled him greatly, That night, about two o'clock, I was startled by a knock on my bedroom ~oor, and Doctor Cox called out: "Mary, are you awake?" I replied that I was--as, indeed, was every one else In the house by that time. "It's Crassus." said the doctor, and then he returned to his room, greatly relieved. Neither Edward nor ~t ever forgot that first lesson in Roman history.- Youth's Companion. The V~ue of S~V|m~.
