of annoying her.

scorn to the opposite side, where he,
with cigar and newspaper, received
and paid them back with interest.
Ills detestable dog came over and
ran through her garden, destroying all
her beautiful tulips and hyacinths,
and she gave him a hot bath, which

For two years they lived and fought,
and no one could bring about peace
between them. It was a pity, the
neighbors all said, for Miss Briggs was
a dear little soul, and there was not a
finer man in the country than Mr.
“Julia, my love,” said Mrs. Perkins
one afternoon, as she entered the cosy
parlor, “I am going to have a party,
and I want you to come down in the
afternoon to tea and remain during
the evening. Every one will be there.”

“Now, Julia, don’t he so foolish! If
you remain at homo he will think that

Miss Briggs thought the matter over.
Well, it would look a little like that,
and she would not have him think so
for the world —the conceited wretch.

though the sports were generally mon
opolized by the younger portion, they
found room for the old maid and her
enemy, and several times they found
themselves doing most ridiculous
things in the way of paying forfeits.
At the end of the evening Miss
Briggs was at the door to depart, when
“Miss Briggs, I am going right up
your way. Will you ride?”
Would she ride behind that old horse,
and beside that detestable man? She
was wondering whether she would or
not, when Mrs. Perkins came and tri
umphantly led her out, and packed
her into the carriage.
It was as dark as pitch, and they
had to let the horse go his own way
and find it the best he could. He did
so very well until they reached the cot

Mr. Sperry spoke, jerked the reins,

the whip. Whether his natural dis

the buggy and its precious contents.
Miss Briggs was up in a moment, un

the grave. She ran shouting through
the darkness until Mr. Perry’s “help”
came with a lantern to her assistance.
They found the poor man half dead
beneath the carriage, and while Dan
was at work, Miss Briggs ran home for
her own servant. After much hard
labor they succeeded in extricating
him from the wreck, but he was sense

for a doctor. Upon examination they

To Prevent Five on Shipboard.
A French maritime engineer, M. Di
bos, has discovered two T jmedies
which can be employed simu>jftTrieous
!y to prevent or announce spontaneous
combustion in the hold of r. vessel.
The first is to have vertical tubes
which go from‘the deck deep into the
hold, down which thermometers may
ho lowered from time to time, and the
temperature in the hold ascertained.
This method is only for the discovery
The second method is really a com
pletion of the first, and consists in
placing in the hold a barrel full of
| common iime, into which, from the
<*’pk. runs a lead pipe. As soon as
; fire is discovered a-n acid (such as sul
i phuric) is poured down tlie tube into
i the lime. This causes a freeing of
carbonic acid gas wliic’j. completely
subdues the fire. .
