In an able paper recently read be
fore the American Social Science As
sociation at Saratoga, on "Mental
Health and the Newspaper," Dr. F.
W. Itussell thoughtfully says :
"The expansion of the newspaper
from the little sheet of our fathers to
the huge Sunday sheet of twenty
four pages of to-day, wherein is de
picted the doings and varied inter
ests oi tne wnoie world, has been ac
companied by other changes. The
average reader ski ms ligntly over
the thousand facts massed in scried
columns. To win his attention ho
oust be aroused, excited, terrified.
(),uiet, thoughtful consideration of
any subject seems to him tame. Tin
result ot this is that from this de
sultory reading comes only superti
cial thinking. The mind staggers
under the load of mere facts, and
ceases to grow and strengthen. This
superficial practice is ruinous to men
tal culture. It dissipates mental en
ergy, and destroys the power of con
centration. Hie newspaper of the
luture will be intensive instead of
expansive, it will give the news of
the day in the compactest possible
form, and will studiously eschew all
forms of sensationalism. When the

"I tell you, papa, I cannot endure his
presence in this house. It was offensive
enough to mo at home, when he came
but once or twice a day. It was still
more so dming our joumej here, when
I was forced to be in the same ear with
him; but now that you tell me he is to
live under the same roof, nit at the same
table and ride in the same carriage with
us it becomes unbearable. My hatred

need you compel me to associate with
him so closely, papa'."
The voice of the speaker was of that
peculiar contralto quality which in a re
fined woman denotes passion and force
of character, and in an ordinary one a
coarse order of strength.
It is a voice which always makes men
turn to listen, and which echoes longer
adown the strings of memory than the
most bird-like notes of more musical and
higher keyed voices.
The face of the speaker betokened re
finement, and this, together with her ex
treme youth and pronounced beauty,
rendered the voice more remarkable.
The elderly man to whom the words
were addressed breathed a deep sigh.
"My dear child, I beg you to be reason
able," he said gently. "You know how
ill I have been you know how alarming
my condition seemed ever after"
"Don't, papa," cried the young girl
sharply. "Do you not suppose I remem

killed mamma, shattered your health
and ruined my young life? Why recall

which was a suggestion of Dr. Watson,

where we are to pass our time of exile,
we could easily sink our identity with
out living under false names."
"The greatest city in the world is not
large enough to hide the identity ot a
disgraced name," responded the old man
"Disgraced? Papa!" exclaimed the
young girl in a tone of expostulation, but
the old man waved his hand wearily.
"Enoncch," he said. "Enough of this,
my dear. The past is -past. Why dis

"Dr. Watson, as you well know, is the
first of many physicians who gave me
any relief from my suffering. He was
the last one to be called by me, because,
like yourself, I had conceived a most un
reasonable prejudice against the man.
Some foolish and idle gossip concerning
his private life, which arose from pure
envy, I am now convinced, had warped
my judgment. But from the hour ha
first took hold of my case I have been a
new man. I have been like one risen
from the grave. " "
"It was he who discovered that old
associations were affecting my mind
dangerously. It was he who suggested
a journey abroad, and, as you say, under
assumed names. A disgraced name ia
like a deceased member of the body. If
you have a wounded finger you are in
constant fear of hurting it, awake or
asleep. If yon bear a stained name you
dread the effect of it on every stranger
yon meet. Dr. Watson realized what
this strain would be upon me during our
journey, and I must confess the relief I
find under my alias is marvelous. You
know how I have improved. The chill
with which I was attacked the morning
of our arrival, and which decided us to
remain here a few months before pro
ceeding farther, is only a step down on
the ladder of heA.tV since I bejran to

The sound of a key rattling in the lock,
like a rat penawing in the wainscot, put
an end to further conversation, and the
door swung open to admit a medium
sized man in his middle thirtiep, whose

kindly attentive to her, as it is your
nature to be, I am sure, toward all her
sex. But I think it would be wise to
take no further notice of her for some
time to come until sho outgrows this
whim of hers."
Dr. Watson leaned near the old gentle
man and laid one hand on his ehcrJder,
and spoke in a low. grave voice:
"My dear friend, I do not wish to
alarm you," he said. "Yes, I have been
studying your daughters mental con
dition ever since I first entered your
service. She has a most remarkably
sensitive nervous organization, and it
has been greatly shocked by events t
which I need not refer. UnlesD she re
ceives medical attention I fear for her.
"I beg you to leave her care entirely
to me. Miss Brown understands her
condition, and we have both wished to
conceal the dtoige'r from you, but since

In tho crowds of people hurrying to

He hailed a cab, hurried to his studio,
made a careful sketch of the face he had
just seen, and carried it to tliu private
detective who was renowned for his skill.

"I saw the original of this sketch day
before yesterday, driving in a carriage,"
explained the detective on Henshall's ar
rival. "I followed and saw him enter
No. 3 West Thirty-eighth street. I
then followed the driver to the stables,
and learned that the carriage had been
rented some three months tx-fore by a
family named Crawford, of tho number
and street I mentioned."
When Mr. Henry Henshall presented
himself before the janitor of No. -i West

concerning a family named Crnwford,
he wa informed that they took their de

the other people in the house.
Iso one had ever exchanged a word
with the family. The woman opposite
volunteered the opinion that they wero
a set of cranks, and no better than they
ought to be, in her opinion.
"A rich old man, a queer woman, a
fellow with an evil eye and a crazy girl
who played the fiddle at 2 o'clock at night
were not pleasant sort of folks to live
opposite," she said, and ehe was glad
enough they had gone, and she had no
desire to know where they were.
With these words she slamined tho
door in Mr. Henshall's eager face.

In vain he tried to banish the shadowy

as it was the c-reatioa of his own brush

Ono afternoon he drmael his palette

Alter this lon; spanh Tom Vogly
coughed into his hat until the crown
threatened to burst, and Henry Henshall
handfnl him five ten dollar bills.
Tho young man was alnrnt to quet.tP.i

"What is the matter, father? You
look troubled," said Henry, as he placed
a chair for his uuexpectcd visitor.
Then I look jus I feel," replied Mr.
Henshall, with a groan that came from
his heart, "(hi tho top of the failure of
Hig;ins fc Lewis., our western ngents. I
this morning learned that my cashiaT
has 'ooen faithless. Ho Ileal to Canada
on Saturday, and a hurried examinntion
of his books shows that he has roblied
me of at least X,000,"
"But you are rated at a million: : nre-
ly you can weather tho storm," i aid
Henry, hoje rather than reason prompt
ing hia words.
If you were a business man. as I
wanted you to be," said Mr. Kensiiall
impatiently, "you would know that a
man's rating by an" agency is never an
evidence of the cash he can command."
Then, rising from his chair, ho laid his
hands a.n his son's shoulders, looked
eagerly into his eyes and added, "Harry,
you can save me if yon will!"
'I, father? and Ix-hmd tho aM gntle-
man Henry Hens'iall taw the Undine
face peering at him from the pictured
water on the easel.
"Yes, yon, Harry. Sit down and when
I have told you all I am sure yon will
fall in with my purj)o.se, for I have teeii
to you a good father, and I feel that you
will be to me a dutiful son.
Henry eat down, and, taking a chair
facing him, his father went on to explain
"I am in the power of one man," he
said, "and by a scratch of bin pen he can
ruin or save me."
"Who is that?" asked Henry.
"Ye, Edward Hartman, Lena Hart
man's father. Harry, you and Lena
played together aa children, and Mr.
Hartman and I we were neighbors and
good friends in those days of ten laugh
ingly spoke of the marriage of yon and
Lena. From that time to this she has
loved you. She is an only child and her
! father is worth $5,000,000.
"If yon will call on her at once I may
get time to think, and if you ask her to
marry you it win save me ana your
mother from an old age of poverty, and
in the end yon will blea the dajthat
yon took my advice.
Mr. Henshall helal out Ids trembling
hands appealingly, and Henry, who sat
with his back to the picture, took them
and said impulsively:
"I would give my life gladly to save
you from troubli., father, so I will do as
you rt-quest; though it will be unjust to
Lena Hartman to offer her my hand
when I cannot give her my heart.
Rejoicing much at his son's obedience
Mr. Henshall left the studio.
Then Henry turned to the easel, and
more distinctly than it had yet appeared
he saw the beautiful, mysterious face
looking up appealingly from the water."
He contrasted this exquisite ideal with
the real Lena Hartman, the art child
that haunted him sleeping and waking,
with the large, full faced aid stupidly
good na tared banker's daughter. .
Henry Henshall's mind was certainly
in an unusual state of perturbation, but
it was placidity itself compared with the
condition of his unknown idoL
