ALL FOR LOVE.

One of those stories, so proline in the
W-.'st-- romantic in the extreme lull of
love, jealousy, attempted murder and a
happy linalc -Inn ju-l been made pnb
lic in Denver, Col. The hern, William
sammls, is one of the weallh'est men
in the state, ami it is front his lips that
the story mines, corroborated 1 y his
wife and In other .lames. Four years
ago the two brothers livetl in ttio beau
tiful Chester Valiey. Pennsylvania.
Herbert Samuels, the father, was a
well-tii-do farmer, owning a splendid
t raft ol l.iu.l. where he dwelt with his
wife and two hoys. When the latter
were did enough he sent them t school
and then to college. Puring their ab
sence a brut In r of the father died and
he took into his family the dead man's
child Ilattie. When the two brothers
returned from college, aged about
twenty th ee and twenty-live respect
ively, they fo.md t..eir cousin, a beau
tiful girl of twenty years, installed in
the hoiiso. Of tho brothers lames, the
elder, had light hair an I eyes and was
of fUiet and even demeanor, rarely, if
ever, known to be angry, and being
a general favorite not only at home
but throughout the entire community.
In marked contrast was the character
and disposition of William, the young
er brother, who. of a dark. almo4
swarthy complexion, with hair and
eyes as black as coal, was fiery and
piick to anger, and although naturally
well meaning ha I had numerous en
counters, both while attending school
and since his graduation.
.Since the time, three years ago,
when dames and William finally re
turned from college and found their
lovely cousin douitciltd at their home,
they had both been violently in love
with her and both had made every
manifestation of the fueling, hut so far
the cunning witch had avoided show
ing the slightest preference for either,
treating them as brothers rather than
lovers. This stale of affairs rankled
as it thorn in the breast of the hot
headed William, whose feelings of bit
terness and jealousy toward his brother
grew until they amounted to almost
positive hatred. Time and again he
sought quarrels, but James' nmro even
temper prevented anything of a serious
character until one bright afternoon in
July, when, upon the return of the
elder brother and Ilattie. from a ride,
the younger, who watched with a
ferocious, dangerous glare in his eye
m his brother assisted his cousin to
alight, then followed him to th
barn where he was unharnessing the
horses and attacked him with the vilest 1
abuse, using epithets so strong that he
was at last compelled to reply in tho
Words were followed by blows,
when William, blinded by passion,
seized a heavy wagon "poke and dealt
his brother a stunning blow, felling
him to the earth, as the blood gushed
from a ghastly wound in the head.
At once realizing the terrible thing
that he had done, and believing that he
had killed his brother, a complete re
vulsion of feeling came over him, and,
casting a last hurried look at the pros
trate form and the white upturned
face, he fled. After several d.tys of
continuous travel he arrived at an
obscure mining camp in Colorado, hop
ing that, buried in the wild fastnesses
of the llocky Mountains he could shut
out from his vision the ever present

pursuit of a miner be sought by a fev
erish industry ami the hardest kind of
hard work to forget his one horror, but
in the dark recesses of the drift in
which he was working, in the gloomy
cornets of the cabin in which he slep ,
everywhere and always it haunted him.
In the meantime, alter a few months,
fortune, with her usual fickleness re
warded his labor, which had been per
formed without any particular thought
or hope, of result, and the open drift,
which had become a tunnel of some
proportions, struck a rich lead of mar
vellous proportions and .-miaining im-
I menso wealth.
j At once the almost unknown camp
j became famous, and his naum all un
! consciously to him became almost as a
household word in all mining commu
nities as associate with one of the
largest strikes of the year. Fame of
this kin .1 travels far, and even after a
time rea 'hed the ipiiet farm in Chester
Valley where he had spent his happy
chililhoud days and afterward wrecked
his manhood. n day, while in the
J cage ascending from the b ittoin of one
j of bis deepest shafts, a shadow cast
'over the top cau-el him to suddenly
look up, and the f.i-'C he saw caused a
thrill of horror Ij pass through him,
his hau ls relaxed his grap of the rope
and he had a narrow eseip" from
falling to the bottom. Arriving at the
top more dead than alive, he gave one
hasty, frightened glance around him,
saw the face again and swooned away
The owner of the face, a tall and
handsome man. evidently a stranger in
the ramp, sprang forward and caught
his falling body in time to prevent it
from being dashed to pieces in the
bottom of the shaft, at tho same time
ejti'ulating, "Oh, William!-' The
miner was taken t i his cabin, and,
alter the application ol restoratives,
slowly revived. "Where is it?" he
iinkod, at which the stranger slowly a -v.iuced
and said s.dtly, "Mrother. do'i't
yon know me?" With a still half
frightened look in his wandering eyes
the miner gavel again at the face
which ha I so startled him, and gradu
ally realizing the fact that it was real,
bxii.gnesh and blood, aga'n rclap ed
into a swoon. For days he rave l in
the paroxysms of a fever, living
the hideous chapter of his life over
again, until a' last the fever exhausted
itself by its very force, and the sick
man sank into a deep slumber.
At last the invalid awoke, weak and
helpless as a child, but in his right
mind. Instantly the cause of hi ill
ness was by his side, and taking his
hand tenderly in his ow n said, "Wil
liam, my poor brother!" It was James
Samuels, the brother who va supposed
to have been dead, but who was here
alive and well and in the full enjoy
ment of manhood. "Is it a miracle?"
ejaculated William, as soon as he could
speak. "It is no miracle, but a sad
mistake under which you have labored
and from which you have undoubtedly
suffered much. When you get strong
er I will tell you all." The next day,
William having so far recovered ns to
he able to sit up, his brother sat by
him and said, "Notwithstanding my
injury, which was not nearly so serious
as you imagined, I regained conscious
ness shortly afterward, and our father,
who entered the barn at. that moment
assisted me to the house. The news
was broken to your mother and Ilattie
as gently as possible and I really think
their sympathies were with you more
than with me. The matter was kept
as quiet as possible in the neighbor
hood and I soon recovered from the
injury, and everything went, along as
usual save that you were grieved for
and lamented by all. Xot withstanding
all the inquiries which we had quiet h
set on foot to discover your wheie
ahouts we utterly failed to discover
any trace, and mourned you almost as
one dead. About two weeks ago I pick
ed up an old newspaper and saw your
name for tho first time connected with
tho story of your big mining strike. It
was at once resolved fiat I should
como to you. I started that very night,
and I am here."
"Hut Ilattie?" asked William, with
a wistful look from his eyes.
"Si.e is well, and would be happy

There was pain in tho very tones in

"Xo, indeed. After you left she con
fided to nie her secret th ?t after all
she loved you and always meant to
marry you." A dae 1 look came over
William's face, and gasping, "It cannot
be," he very nearly relapsed into
another swoon, the joy of the announce
ment being almost too much for him
in his weakened state. At last, after
having been assured again and again
by his brother of the glad truth, he ex
claimed, "Oh, let ns go home at once."

We have it on the authority of Mr.
Karl Muller that, in his liovhoil he
knew a man who, Janus-like, had two

he says, "I dreaded this sti inu'i' double

at last he found relief in the exclaina

sort of person, am I not?' 'Why?' I
asked. 'I'.ecaiisc I perspire only on my
right side.' he responded. And so it
was. His right cIicck and the right
half of his forehead were as hot as lire,
while the left side of his face bore not
a tra.-c of p 'rspiration. I had never
seen the like, and in my astonishment
was about to enter into con ver..:tt ;.m

phenomenon, when his neighbor on

that we move around m a crust en

' the skin of an orange bulges out when

tides would be almost, if ti"t quite, im

attraction of the moon, the earth, sir
1 W ilham says, must be as rigid as
; "so wo have the theory that, tin;
I crust of the earth floats on and im
poses an immense weight on a water

i lire exerted in every direction, would
be increased, some effect must be
produced down there, and it is easy to
see that if one phv e in the earth's
i eru.st is weaker than another near the
region win re the water trickled in,
then 'the weakest place must stun' the
strain.' It is not unrcasonablo to sup-
j pose that this pressure below might be
' so great that the earth's covering was
j shifted a little to adapt itself to the
' pressure Iroin below. This shifting
of the crust is, in fact, the earthquake.
"I believe this theory has the greater
reason on its side, because earthquakes
are almost always in the region of vol
canoes.and volcanoes are almost always
n or near the ocean.
"Another theory of earthquakes is
that as the earth is very gradually
cooling off the crust is thickening on
the under side, and cracks or fissures
on the under side of the crust many
miles deep may occur in consequence ,
uf the enormo'is pressure, so that the
water sii' stance rushes into a new po
sition with a force that would kniiek a
continent out of shape if it look pla -e
on the ear'.b's surface. That motion
would be sufficient to produce a vibra
tion thirty miles distant.
