Lord Harry was right, There stood the woman who had been hia first nurse the woman who overheard and watched the woman who inspected.

Sh would make those inquiries. The second letter-, which reached her the same day, was from Mr; Meuntioy. He told her what he had told Mrs. Vimpany: he would give her th money, because he recognized the spirit of fldallty which caused Fanny to go first to Paris and then to Berne. But he could net pretend to any iht to interference ia th affairs of Lord and Lady Harry Norland.

Me inclosed a mandal postal for a hundred and twenty-five francs, which he hoped would be sufficient for her immediate wants. She started on her return journey on the same day namely, Saturday. On Sunday evening she was in a pension at Passy, ready to make those inquiries. Th first person whom she sought out was th rentier-the landlord of the eottage. was a retired tradesman one who had hs modest fortune in a charcuterie, and had "invested it ia honse property.

Fanny told him she had been lady's maid to Lady Harry Norland, in th recent occupancy of the eottage, and that ehe waa anxious to know her present address. "Merci. mon Dieu! que scaie-ie?

At 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon heavy, black clouds began to gather along the; mountains and up toward the divide and in almost an incredibly short time rain began to pour down In sheets, at times it was' so thick that it was impossible to see across the streets.

After twenty minutes of rain hail commenced falling and con- tinned for nearly an hour, covering the; streets and pavements eight to twelve inches deep. Business was entirely sus-j pended. People who were ont were com-; pelled to take shelter in 6tores and offices-' The electric line had to close down en-! tirely as the water rushed into the motor! house to such depth that the fires had toj be drawn and up to 11 o'clock at night cars were lying on the track- The greenhouses of Mr. Clark and Bradford are completely wrecked, scarcely, a light of glass remaining intact in either house. The hail that fell are almost as large as hen's eggs.

One hundred thous-. and dollars will not cover the loss, almost all the' business men in town suffering. Most of the damage was caused by the wa-J ter rushing into the cellars where goods were stored. DONE. Vr.

"I can get round by the Caemin de Fer de Ceinture to the Lyons station. I shall take the first cheap- train which "will take me to Berne." "Bon voyage!" said the doctor cheerfully, and shut the door.

It is a lng journey from Paris to Berne even for those who can travel first-class and express that is, if sixteen hours can be called a long journey. For those who have to jog along ty third-class, stopping at all tho little country stations, it is a long and tedious journey Indeed. The longest journey ends at last. The train int6tfia 6tationor jjeme, iad Fanny descended with her bffip Her 'wezve? for the present. She would find her mistress and be at re's.

She asked to be direoted to the Hotel d'Angleterre. The Swiss guardian ef the peace wifch the cocked hat stared at her. She repeated the question "Hotel d'Angleterre?" he echoed. "There Is no Hotel d'Angleterre in Berne." "Yes, yes am the maid of a lady who is staying at that hotel." "No, them ie bo Hotel be repeated. "There is the Hotel Berner-bof." "No," she took out the paper and showed it to him, "Lady Harry Norland, Hotel d'Angleterre, Berne." "There is the Hotel de Belle Vne, the Hotel du Faucon, the Hotel Victoria, the Hotel Schweizerhef.

Her mistress, was at ijerne; she would De one or tne Ho tels. Berne is not a large place. Very good; she would go round to the hotels and inquire. She did so.

There are not, in fact, more than ha' a dozen hotels in Berne where an English lady could possiblv stay. Fanny want to every one of these. No one had heard of any such lady; they showed her the lists of their visitors. She Inquired at the No lad bt that name had asked for letters. She asked if there were any pensions, and went ronnd them all uselessly.

No other conclusion, was possible. The doctor had deceived her. willfully. To get her out of the way he sent her to Berne. He would have sent her to Jericho if her purse had been long enough to pay the fare.

She was tricked. She counted her mouey. There was exactly twenty-eight shillings and tenpencs In her parse. She went back to the cheapest (and dirtiest) of the nensioas she had visited. She staged her case she had missed milady and mistress she must stay until she should receive orders to goon, and money would they take her in until one or the other arrived.

Certainly. They would take her in, at five francs a day, payable every morning in advance. She made a little calculation she had twenty-eight and tenpence; exactly thirty-five francs enough for seven days. If she wrote to Mrs. Vimpany at once she could get an answer in five days.

She accepted the offer, paid her five shi" lings, was shown into a room, and was informed that the dinner was served at six o'clock. Very good. Here she could rest, at any rate, and think what was to be done. And first she wote two letters one to Mrs. Vimpany and one to Mr.

Mountjoy. In both of these letters she told exactly what she had found; neither Lord Harry nor his wife at the cottage, the place vacated, and the doctor on the point of going away. In both letters she told how she had been sent all the way into Switzerland on a fool's errand, and now found herself planted there without the means of getting home. In the letter to Mrs. Vimpany She added the remarkable detail that the maa whom she had seen on the Thursday morning apparently dead, whose actual poisoning she thought she had witnessed, was reported on the Saturday have walked out of tho cottage, carryin3 his things, if he had any, and proposing to make his way to London in order to find oat his old nurse.

"Make what yoa ean out of that," she said. "For my own part, I understand notiiing." In tha letter which she wrote to Mr. Mount joy she added a petition that would send her money to bring her home. This, site said, her mistress she knew would willingly defray. She uosted these letters on Tuesday, and waited for the answers.

Mis. Vimpany wrote back by return post. "My dear Fanny." she said, "I have read your letter with the greatest intei est. I am not only afraid that some villainy is atloat, but I am perfectly sure ef it. One can only nope aad pray that her ladyship may be kept on of its influence.

Fortunately the passengers escaped with a few slight cuts and bruises. TLeir names were Yankee Sullivan, of Pittsburg, one of the oldest engineers on the road; Daniel Goodwin, engineer of the eastern division, who was riding in the cab; an unknown man, supposed to be a tramp, riding between the tender and the baggage car.

Fireman King was painful ly but not dangerously injured. The train, which, consisted of three sleepers and a baggage car, was crowded with excursionists bound for the seashore. It was late in getting away from the city and was proceeding at a rapid pace to make up lost time. Near Osceola station, twenty miles south of this city, an obstruction was encountered. There was a terrible crash and the engine was thrown over the embankment.

The cars ran along the rails for a distance of fifty feet, where they fell over on the west bound track toward the hill side. The engine was completely wrecked. Sullivan, Goodwin and the tramp were crushed beneath the timbers and were killed almost instantly. King, the firaman, was thrown into a tree thirty feet away and escaped with serious bruises.

Four ties had been placed securely between and on the rails. Fortunately the work of the wreckers was frustrated by the cars falling on the west bound side.

THE ADVENTURES OF A FAITHFCL MAID. It was about Are o'clock on Saturday afternoon. The funeral was over. The unfortunate young Irish gentleman was bow lying in the cemetery of Anteuil in a avo purchased in perpetuity. His name, age and rank were duly inscribed in the registers, and the cause of his death was Touched for by the English phvsician who had attended him at the request of his family.

He was accompanied. In going through the formalities, bv the respectable woman who had nursed the sick man during hia last seizure. Everything was perfectly in order. The phvsician was the only mourner at the funeral. No one was curious abont the little proces-aion.

A funeral, more or less, excites no attention. The funeral completed, the doctor gave ordera for a simple monument to be put up in memory of Lord Harry Norland, thus firematnrely eut off. He then returned to he eottage, paid and dismissed the nnrse, taking her address in case he ahonld find an opportunity, as he hoped, te recommend her among hia numerona aad distinguished clientele, and proceeded to occupy himself in setting everytbimK in order before giving over the key to the landlord.

He has gone away. On a long journey. By himself." "Then I shall wait for him. here!" she added with decision. "In this house!" "By all means." She hesitated.

There was an easy loo)l about the doctor which she did not like. "I believe," she said, "that my mistress ia in the house. She must be in the house. What are yon going to do with her? I believe you have put her somewhere," "Indeed!" "You would do anythingl I will go to the police." "If you please," "Oh! doctor, tell me where she is!" "You are a faithful servant; it is good, in these days, to find a woman so zealous on account of her mistress. Come in, good and faithful.

Search the house all over. Come in what are you afraid of? Put down your box, and go look for your mistress," Fanny obeyed. She ran into the house, opened the doors of the salon and the dining room one after the other; no one was there. She ran up the stairs and looked into her mistress' room; nothing was there, not even a riooon or a nair-pm, to show the recent presence of woman. She looked into Lord Harry's.

room. Nothins was there. If a woman leaves hair-pins about, a man leaves his tooth-brush; nothing at all was there. Then she threw n-T-n the armoire in each room; nothing behind doors. She came down-stairs wondering what it all meant.

I wish we had move such grateful creatures as well as more such faithful servants. He said something about finding his way to London in order to thank yqu properly. A good soul, indeedl" "Gone!" she repeated.

"Why, on Thursday morning I saw him" She checked herself in time. "It was on Wednesday morning that yon saw him, and he wa3 then recovering rap idlv." "But he was far too weak to travel." "You may be quite certain that I should not have allowed him to go away unless he was strong enough." Fanny made no reply. She had Been with her own eyes the man lying still and white, as if in death; she had seen the new nurse rushing off, crying that he was dead; now she was told that he was quite well, aHd that he had gone away! But it was bo time for thought. She was on the point of asking where the new nurse was, bat' she remembered ia time that it was best for her to know nothing and to awaken no suspicions. She opened the door of the spare room and looked in.

Yes, the man was one dead or alive and there were no traces left of his presence. The place was cleared up, the cupboard stood with open doors, empty, the bed was made, the curtain pushed back, the sofa was La its place aeaiast the wall, the window stood open. Nothing in the room at all to show that there had been an occupant only two days before. She stared blankly. The man was gone, men.

juad ner senses deceived her? Was he no dead. but only sleeping? Was her horror only a tning 01 imagination? isenina ner, in the hail, stood the doctor, smiling, cheer ful. She remembered that her Brst Business was to find her mistress. She was not con' nected with the Dane. She closed the door and returned to the hall.

XJeatenant Pillsbury Tells of theTaria tlons of the Great Ocean Current. Lieutenant J.

E. Pillsbury, of th navy, has at the request of Professoi T. C. Mendenhall, Superintendent oi the Coast survey, written him a letter setting forth his views on the subject of the Gulf Stream and its variations. He says: "I think the Gulf Stream doei change its position to a slight amount, but not in the arbitrary manner or to the great extent stated by some of the newspaper writers of late.

While it is probably a tact that as a rule, a current from the equator is warmer and one from the pole is coldei than the surrounding waters, it is no always the fact that the warmest flowing yrater is from, the south, nor thai the coldest is from the north. The mere presence of warm water doe not necessarily show that a current exists, nor does a change of temperature show that there is a change in current. The Gulf Stream probably has a vibratory motion, as evidenced by our own anchorage on Cape Hatteras, and as previously noticed of Rebecca Shoal, Fla. Anchored there, on the northern of tha stream, riding to the wind with a gen tle current, the latter would suddenly become strong and swing the vessel until she was stern to wind, to remain but a short time, and then the current becoming weaker the wind would gain the ascendency. This was repeated i number of times.

"I believe that the daily volume of the stream varies but little excepl from that due to declination of tha moon. Along the northern coast, how ever, it is not always on the surface. but is overrun bv other currents. I think that its track through the ocean is absolutely fixed by law, and that its. vibration is periodic, although the limit of the periodic change may vary a trifling amount.

The generally accepted belief that a wind bio win" across the current changes the position of its axis is, I am convinced, erroneous. Every temporary wind, however, does transport water (chief! by means of waves), and with it goes its neat or cold. "The fact of finding gulf weed with in a few miles of Nantucket lightship does not so much prove that the current is nearer our shores as it does that winds have prevailed in the direction irom wmcu it comes, ics some is iu the Sargasso Sea, from which it is drawn by the winds and the sea. A small amount finds its way info the Caribbean through the Antigua pass- a hut- TYinct nf it. naCAt nm-th sif Via West Indian Islands.

The break of th waves has more effect on its movements than a current, unless the latter is very strong, and in the Gulf Stream itself it is seen stretching in long lines in the direction of the wind aad sea, and not iu the direction of the current, except only in the -case of a rip at the meeting of currents. "Anchored on the edge of the Florida reefs, with a strong wind blowing directly from the Gulf Stream, which was only a short distance away, its clear blue water was driven by the sea and overcame the cloudy reef water, but no current accompanied it. In Key West harbor the water is usually cloudy. A southerly wind will cause a sea that will carry the clear water inshore, even in spite of an ebb tide. The wind shifting to the opposite quarter will at once alter it to milky whiteness." uauU JSoy Papa, thie book says that when an ofSoe-kaldef ia gete rich the people cut hia head ff 4nt confiscate bis property, catlsaj t3jer kSiSit he stole it.
