The commissioner of internal revenue
has handed in his annual report to the
secretary of the ATOM? for the past
year. The tables embodied therein show
that during the past three years and
four months 3,117 illicit distilleries have
been seized, G,363 persons arrested for
illicit distill ing, and 27 officers and em
ployes kiHed and 18 wounded wlrile en
gaged in enforcing the internal revenue
law. The commissioner says that the
State courts have> taken cognizance of
these murders and assaults only in a few
eases, and they cannot bo relied upon
to punish such offences. He therefore
recommends the enactment by congress
of a law authorizing the United States
courts to try and punish persons charged
with assaults upon United States officers
while the latter are engaged in the per
formance of their official duties. The
report shows that 5,448 distilleries were
registered during the past fiscal year,and
5,347 operated. During the special tax
year, ending April 30th, there were 49,-
000,000 gallons of spirits rectified, and
during the fiscal yeas tire taxes paid on
spirits withdrawn from the warehouse
aggregated $4^,‘778,000. Tn discussing
the reduction of the tax on tobacco, tlie
hbrninftaiGTicr says tliat during four
months of the present Iscal year the de
crease in receipts from tobacco and snuflj
as comparorl with the corresponding pc’
iod last year, was $2,336,000. These
figures indicate a decrease for the whole
y v ear of $7,000,000, The total produc
tion of tobacco and snuff in the United I
States during the year was 131,000,000

A poor brown leaf with edges torn;
Now here, now there, blown high and low
An outcast and a thing of scorn.
Alas I Alas!
So life drifts on to hearts forlorn.
Once in a bower, fresh and bright,
Kissed by tlie sun-rays and the dew,
A maid to nee the hot sun’s might
Prone on the ground her fair limbs threw,
To sleep, to sleep,
And dream of some one that she knew,
She slept and dreamt a horrid thing—
That he she loved from her would stay t
And starting up, deep sorrowing,
Resolved to seek him out that day.
•Twas all too true—he’d fled away.
Her last love token—just a leaf
Os sycamore—love’s emblem bright,
She threw away, then juayci tliat grief
Might bear her off from mortal sight.
Whilst the deed leaf drifted through the night.

THE EMERALD RING.
BY HELEN LL’QUEER.
Mrs. Ladis turned from her glass, rn.ti
ant and beautiful, and said to her hus
“I hope, dear, you are satisfied with
me, you are so critical about my dress.”
Her lord condescended to smile upon
the pretty, pouting woman as he replied:
“ You are just splendid, Eugenia, and
born for rich robds, lace and jewels. But
speaking of them, where is yous emerald
“ In nay jewel box, of course."
“ No it is ntt't”
“How do you know, Edward?” asked
she, elevating her eyebrows in surprise.
Because 1 looked for it, and y-ou
know it is not there, but on the finger of
that insufferable coxcomb, Ellery!”
“ Edward, what do you mean?”
“Just this; if hia attentions and
admiration of you are not less pro
nounced and your pleasure thereat less
apparent I will thrash the puppy, tbatis
Mr. Ladis had worked himself into a
Sassion of jealousy, and his fine eyes
ashed with anger as he stood confront
ing his now indignant wife, who, word
less, turned to her dressing bureau and
began a hasty search for the ring, hop
ing to flash back a denial to the unjust
suspicions of her husband. But the
valuable jewel was gone I For a moment
the lady stood with one pink finger
pressed upon her rosy lip in a vain men
tal cogitation, as to where she had last
Together with a large party- of city
friends they were sojourning at one
of the fashionable summer mount
ain resorts, and the days were spent
in picnics and rambles, and the
nights upon the balconies or in moon
light promenades. She recollected
that ouly the previous evening she bad
walked with young Ellery; perhaps ho
had been a trifle too attentive, and as
the ring was large for her slender fingerhe
had, as a bit badinage and to tease her,
slipped it from of! her hand and was
openly wearing it, and her husband was
so suspicious and jealous that should he
see it upon the gentleman’s finger there
would be an unpleasant encounter.
These reflections caused her to turn upon
her husband a rather flushed face, and
with downcast eyes, she said:
“ I am ready to go down to dinner,
“ Come, then,” he returned in his
most rigid manner, “ and remember I
forbid you to receive even the most
trivial attention from Ellery.”
“ You are unjust, and your suspicions
“ And your pretended search for the
ring is entirely too elaborate and over
acted; and you may as well be informed
that not two hours ago I saw the emerald
upon the hand of that idiot.”
“And I protest,” she answered, draw
ing herself up to the most queenly
height, “ that if Mr. Ellery has possession
of the ring, I do nut know how he ob
tained it. But I shall ask him for it at
once, and return it to you;” and hastily
stripping off ail the costly gems from
hfer slender white hands and placing
them in her jewel-case, she continued:
“ and I make a solemn vow never to wear
one of these baubles, these gifts of
yours, until you have taken back yom
cruel words and relieved me from y our
unjust and jealous suspicions.”
“ And I forbid you speaking to Ellery
upon any conditions, unless you would
have me kick the scoundrel out of decent
society,” replied her angry husband, as
the regal woman coldly took his etofleied
arm and was led to the table d’hole.
How splendidly and coyly did the
young wife demean herself that even': g.
She had not the ghost of a smile fur a

The next day, according to attange

famous glen, and Mr. and Mrs. Ladis
Came down arrayed in picnic costume,

The face of the lady paled a little at
the cold announcement of a separation
which, though brief, would be the first
since their marriage; and as that flashed
upon her tho fine eyes grew misty and
her loving woman’s heart forgiving, and
bending down to him as he stood by the
wagon, she whispered:
“lam so sorry. It will spoil the day
for me. Cannot Igo with you.”
“No; I shall be running about, and
you would only be an incumbjancc.
He was turning away without even a
hand clasp, when she reached out her
white, shapely and ringless ope and said:
“Good bye, then, Edward; surely we
have not been married so long that we
may not shake hands.”
He glanced coldly at the proffered
member and replied in a tone so low
that she alone could hear:
“You have registered a vow, I be
lieve; so have I, and trust wo will not
again join hands until you put on your
rings, at least the wedding one,” and
with the words he turned upon his heel
and walked away.
There was a great lump in the pretty
white throat of the young wife and a
mist before her eyes; but she managed
to suppress and hide her feelings in the
bustle and confusion of starting, and to
send cut a ripple of musical laughter at
some badinage as her husband drove off,
and for his especial benefit; for woman
may be loving and forgiving and yield
ing by nature, yet the best of them can
be provoking and spiteful upon provoca
tion—and Mrs, Ladis was no exception
to the rule.
The day was passed as usual upon
such occasions. There was much fatigu
ing search after a little enjoyment;
much climbing of rocky heights and
clambering over rough and slippery
ways; sitting upon banks mossy, damp
and bug-sheltering; dining with cramped
limbs upon cold viands and with limited
facilities; for either somebody had for
gotten the spoons or cups, and all were
surprised that “ they never once thought
of forks!” But their appetites were
sharpened by exercise and all discom
forts made light of, and the deluding
creatures went home declaring they had
had “ such a splendid time.”
In this instance the wagon in which
Mrs. Ladis was returning (with many
others) broke down upon the rough
road, and the others bad to take in the
ladies, leaving many of the gentlemen
to walk, and it so happened that Mrs.
Ladis was assigned a seat in the buggy
with young Ellery, he having driven
out alone. She knew well enough her
husband would be furious over it, but
she was not going to render herself
ridiculous by declining a simple and
Yet as they rode along she felt im
patience and chagrin at the accident
which had thrust her upon her com
“ The whole day has been to me an
unpleasant one, and I wish I had re
mained at home.” she said.
“ 1 wish Mr. Ladis could hear you,”
laughed Ellery. “He would vote you
the most devoted of wives and his con
jugal coni delight in the snubbing you
iuflict upon your gentlemen friends.”
“ 1 suppose I ought to be exceedingly
grateful to you, Mr. Ellery, for the
privilege of being driven home by you,
but I do not feel very kindly disposed
toward you at present.”
“ Why, Mrs. Landis?” he interrupted.
“ What have I done to merit your dis
pleasure? I have noticed all day your
avoidance of me, and with what reluct
ance you accepted a seat in my car
“ I have lost my emerald ring, sir, and
I am told that you have been seen wear

“ I regret to be a cause of annoyance
to you,” returned he, and while speaking
took from his pocket an emerald ring
very unlike the one in question. “ You
see, madame, that your jealous and sus

that he should think—”

“ Mr. Ellery, I will never speak to you
again if you say another word against
my husband,” she replied, with indig
nant tears springing to her eyes.
“ I am not likely to have the oppor
tunity, madam, for there comes your
lord and master after the wife he neither
honors nor trusts.”
Nothing could have exceeded the sur
prise of Mr. Ladis when they met, to find
Iris wife being escorted home by Ellery.
They had started in advance of the rest
of the company, and consequently the
husband had nc knowledge of the acci
dent which had thrust her upon him.
And the flushed face and indignant
manner of the lady he at once construed
into signs of guilt at detection, for he
well knew his coming must have been
ueexpected, she supposing him to have
gone to the city. “ I will relieve you of
my wife, sir,” said he in his most icy
manner and with an angry Hash darken
ing his face. As Ellery assisted the
lady from bis carriage to that of her
husband some imp of darkness must
have prompted bls words, for he said:
“ That's the way with you husbands.
You won’t let another fellow take even
one step into your Elysium without put

accident that had caused Mrs. Ladis to
be in his company.
Forgetting every doubt and grievance,
the young husband held his wife in his
arms, gazed upon her death-white face,
and frantically called her name and
begged her to speak but a single word.
Help came at last, and they bore her
home but partially revived and laid her
in that unconscious state upon her own
bed. The physician who had been sum
moned pronounced her in great danger
from contusion of the brain. Wearily
and slowly the hours dragged along to the
young husband, ever a watcher by her
Tortured by her sufferings lay the
poor woman with her spirit wandering
ever in a dream land peopled by her
husband's doubts of her, his accusations
which she attempted to refute in mut
terings of indignant protest, and the lit
tle hands wandering over the bed in
search of the ring; often finding it in
imagination, with sighs of contentment,
only to be followed by its loss again or
some new trouble or misunderstanding
between herself and her dearly beloved
husband; and all the while her eyes had
an unearthly brilliancy, her face flushed,
her lips ashy, and even moving. At
last the physician forbade the presence
of Mr. Ladis.
“ I will not answer for her life unless
you leave the room,” he said. “ Your
presence constantly keeps up the excite
ment; your voice increases her delu
“ I will do asyou bid me,” returned the
agonized husband, “ provided you pro
mise to notify me of any change the in
stant it occurs.”
The promise given, young Ellery, who
had been in constant sympathy with and
ministration to Mr-Ladis, led him to his
own room, placed him upon a couch and
attempted to lead his mind away from
the cause of anxiety. In nervous ex
pectancy that wouldnot admit of repose,
Ladis tossed about the tassels and fin
gered the hem of his dressing-gown.
“There is something in this corner,”
he said; and taking his knife, he made a
small incision and out rolled the missing
ring of his wife! Then he continued al
most wildly: “I remember now; Eu
genia sewed up a rent in the garment the
very day she lost the fatal ring. It was
always large for her and required a
guard. She had neglected to put one on
and the emerald must have slipped
from her finger. And I, miserable
wretch that I am. tortured her with
doubts and mistrust, and if she dies I
shall have been her murderer!”
In vain Ellery attempted to cheer and
speak words of hope. But springing to
his feet Ladis paced the floor rapidly and
“ I tell you, but for my ceaseless
jealous rage, my poor wife would not
now be lying there a victim of that acci
dent. If she dies, I shall have been her
murderer, and cannot, will not, survive
“ You must not yield to this mad
ness,-' said his friend. “ True, you have
cruelly wronged your wife, and are but
receiving a justly merited punishment,
and must submit to the blow; and
should the worst come and seal a life
sep::ration, it would bo better for you
both than the life you had commenced
to inaugurate with that pure, sensitive
and trusting woman.”
“ I know it; God help me!” exclaimed
the contrite, broken-hearted man, as he
sank into a chair, and covering his face
with his hands, wept repentant tears—
that balm of Gilead for a tortured souk
Long hours passed before Mr. Ladis
was summoned to the side of his wife.
She had at last sank into a quiet and
peaceful slumber, and he was permitted
to watch alone by her bedside for the
same awakening the physician had pre
dicted was to follow.
The blackness of night had faded into
the rosy dawn of a new day, before she
opened her eyes to meet the loving ones
bending over her. There was a silent
meeting of lips; whispered words of
assurance an t thankfulness from the
husband, as ho bedewed her hands with
tearsand covered them with kisses.
In reply she only whispered lowly and
trembingiy, though joyfully:
“ Bring me my rings, Edward.”
He did as she had requested, and
slipped them one by one upon the poor
white hands, even to the last emerald,
and sealed them with a kiss, explaining
briefly how the wiring one had been
found. And at last, when Mr. Ellery
came with the physician for tidings of
the invalid, they found her slumbering
sweetly with her head upon the breast
of her husband, whose face smiled upon
them unspeakable joy and thanks for the
life preserved and their kind administra
Since that hour, life has glided for
them as a peaceful stream, with no vain
coquettishness upon the part of the wife,
and no jealous doubts on that of the
