The third time try ing was successful, anefhe drew himself out exhausted and fainting. He lay down on the floor of the corridor for several minutes before he had strength to proceed, and then gathered himself up and hurried away from j the spot which was so full of terrors -to him. When he reached the first cross corridor he sat down on a jutting piece of coal and for the first time found that the rats had gnawed two of his Angers to the had eaten away the uppers of as an expression of the indignation of the people against him. his shoes and the flesh, of his two great toes.

As might have, been expected, the noble family of the marquis turned up their titled noses at this marriage with a be leaving him. He conjured up pic tures of his mother waiting for him to come home at night; of her anxiety at his tardiness and then heruncontrollable grief at the news of his loss. Then his mind dwelt on the horrors of a death by starvation or suffocation in the mine, and the sickening thought that he was ill" 1 . m -m 4 . tnat were ready to maKe too a oi mm even before he" was dead. These thoughts almost drove him crazy, and he aroused himself, determined to make an other effort to escape from the mine. He followed one of the dross corridors and wandered about in the maze of chambers for hours. Once, he thought he heard his name called and he shouted in reply, only to hear it repeated for many minutes loj the demon echoes. While wandering about in this way, a prey to the tortures of hunger and thirst, d to both mental and? physical agony, he saw a light flash for an instant' across the corridors in which he was groping. It was a long way off, but he knew it was a, miner's lamp, and felt that par ties were searching through the deserted chambers for him. Regardless of the harjl J jaggejl floor, tho. strong walls, the ever-accompanying throng of rats that Even then terror of his cruet taskmaster followed Joy & horde of ravenous rats was uppermost in his mind, and 'it' was not until tho little mine lamp on his .cap began to grow dim and finally ' went f en tirely out that he awoke to the horror of his situation. ' - . If there is a chamber of horrors any where in tho world it is a coal mine that has been worked out and deserted. Its labyrinth of silent corridors ijesponds to the least sound with the most demoniacal echoes, and noxious gases generate in the itools Of slimy water that exudes from the walls and drips down upon th slippery floor.

This remark led to conversation on the subject, and! to Singer's explaining his invention, which, discouraged, he had given up. My father urged him to per severe, and fired with new hope, he took heart and went to work again. So great was his preoccupation that he was never perfect in a part after that. Like all inventors he was looked upon as half crazy, particularly when he was caught slipping a spool from a lady's work basket into his pocket, or furtively plucking the hairs out of an actor's wig. Arkwright r himself was never put to greater shifts to obtain material to work with.- Singer first set up a model of a machine to be worked with one foot only, but there was some trouble about the treadle, and he abandoned that ; but he was j fully determined to per severe, and he left the company to give his whole time to experiments.
