In refer ring to the great and good effect the Farmers' Alliance had had upon the recent elections he said that it had j so frightened tho demagogue and ! the politicians that nine tenths of these were ready to sware that they believed in the Alliance and had done so all their lives. In referring to the recent death of the King of Holland he drew a striking contrast between him and the great and good and wise William, Prince of Orange, of whom the late dUrepu table king was the last made descendant. In this connection he paid his respects to the Darwinian theory, showing how the lowest of the species man had evoluted from the highest, and k on, but we must stop.

Though a lawyer he is in sympathy with the reforms advocated by the Alliance, and his father is President of the Al- leghauey County Alliance. He is a man of ability and with experience in legislative and parliamentary us age, and would make an excellent speaker : but the West has had th.9 speakership three or four times in tfuccesssion, so theE&9t, other things being equal, is certainly entitled to it thi3 time. If the Eastern mem bers will be sensible and unite they can electa man. A letter has just been received from Col. Harry Skin ner saying that he would not be i condidate. This leaves the fight be tween Mr, A. D. Jones, of Wake, and Col. Thos. H. Sutton, of Cum berland, both of whom are highly competent and deserving. We attended sei vices at the First Baptist chutch on Sunday. This is an imposing structure, situated on the west side of the capitol square. We expected to hear simply a common-place fcermon. for we had never heaid of Dr. Carter, the pastor, (ard, for that matter by any of the pastors oC the other churches here) and it has been sometime since we have augS'-tf I seen a sermon reported by any of the Raleigh papers. Therefore we took it for granted that the sermons were not worth reporting, fro we went to this church (because it was nearest) on Sunday and sat down more from a sense of duty than anything else. The pastor (not very prepossessing in appearance) arose and commenced his discourse in a cracked squally voice. We settled ourself in a seat as comfortably as possible to be bored for probably an hour. Dr. Carter had not been preaching more than five minutes before we straightened up and began to listen closely, and in this attentive position we remained during the entire discourse. It was (in spite of the poor delivery) one of the most interesting and impres sive sermons we have ever heard in many a uay. xexi: "we pass our livea as a story which is told," which was taken from the 9th verse of the 90th Psalm. Subject: "The Story of Life." The learned Doctor discussed his subject under three di visions, vix ; Life is checkered, life is shait Ufi oftens ends abruptly. 7nder these three heads, the philos ophy of life, from the time we enter upon this temporal existence with a cry till we launch into the great eternity with a groan, was presented with a profoundness of reasoning embellished with sach a breadth o knowledge and. richness of illustra tioQ, and intensified with such a depth of earnestness and fire of feeling as we have seldom had the privilege o: hearing. . It U to he regretted tha the newspapers do not report more frequently than they do such ser mons. But we suppose they do no dare to, do so on account of the la mentable prejudice existing between denominate ns: but this paper is no built that way, it reports whatever is worth reporting, no matter from what source it cornea and no matter whom it pleases or displeases. After furnishing thia discourse proper, the divine, pausing a minute, said: 'To day la the first Sabbath of the firs year of the last decade of the 19th century," and then proceeded to give Krv4i th i:' r-torJli-ry Swim Otintta.

Be fore lifting her out of the water a sailor threw kis jacket over her, and then laid her tenderly in the bottom of the boat For SO consecutive liouis site had been swimmms and noauns, someuaes on her back, sometimes on ' her side. She spoke of the heat as so intense that she had continually to keep ner bead under water to eseape sunstroke, one. says that she had never any conscious fear of di-ath, either from drowning, or from a worse or more terrible enemy, sharks. but she often felt her powers of endur ance giving way, and it was only the thought of the agony her death would have caused her parents which enabled the heroic- gut to continue her exertions. The wreck took place at 9 p. m. on Fri day, February 28, and Miss Lacy was not rescued until 8 o'clock on Sunday tnorniner. Twelve hours out of that time site spent with the obiet officer, Grey, who had got on a raft. As he could not swim, the brave girt swam -by the side of the raft and tried to tow- it toward land. Finding however, that she was making na progress, a left him, looping to reach land, which did not seem far away, and so get food and water for herself and him. She rood, however, got lute cross currents, and when the Albatross rescued her she was drifting out to sea, ISiea Lacy is now recovering from the- fearful shock she has undergone, and haa before now re turned to her home. She expressed a great dread of going again on the water, and it is scarcely likely that the intrepid girl will ever visit England. O. T. Heade, UK a moment there was silence in the briehtlvlllui minated room. Withflushr ed face and swollen veins and twitching,' clutching hands, old Maitland stood there glaring at the young officer. Before Perry could speak again, however, and more fully explain the untoward circumstance, there came a rush of hurrying footsteps without, and the sound of excited voices. The next minute they neard an eager, angry challenge, and Perry recognized the voice of the overseer or manager whom he had met in the morning, 'What do you fellows want here? was his brusque and loud inquiry as ne sprang from the piazza and stood con fronting the sergeant, who was quietly seated in the saddle, and the question was promptly echoed by three or four burly men who, in shirt sleeves and various styles of undress, came tumbling In the wake of their leader and stood now a menacing group looking up at the silent troopers. If there be one thing on earth that will stir an Irishman's soul to its inmost depths and kindle to instant flame the latent heat of his pugnacity, it is just such an inquiry in the readily recog nized accent of the hated "Sassenach.1 Perry recognized the danger in a flash. and, springing through the open case ment, interposed between the hostile parties. "Not a word, Sergt. Leary. iere, Mr. Manager, these men simply obeyed or ders, and I am responsible for any mi? take. No harm was intended" Harm!" broke in one of the ranch men, with a demonstratively loud laugh. "Harm be blowedt What harm could you do, I'd like to know? If the mas terll only say the word, we'd break your heads in a minute. Quiet, now, DickP interposed the overseer; but the other hands grpwled approval, and Perry's eyes flashed with anger at the insult What reply he might have made was checked by the sight of Sergt Leary throwing himself from the saddle and tossing his reins to one of the men. He knew well enough what that meant, and sprang instantly in front of him. "Back to your horse, sir! Back, in stantly r for the sergeant's face was fierce with rage. "Mount, I say! added the lieutenant, as the sergeant still hesitated, and even the sense of diacrpune could not keep the mounted troopers from a mut tered word of encouragement Slowly, wrathfully, reluctantly, the soldier obeyed, once turning furiously back as jeering taunts were hurled at him from among the ranchers, nnrebuked by their this nighT you may confidently lookTor another visit I say that to you also. Mr. MatMsnd. and you owe it to our for bearance that there has been no blood shed here to-night" uid Maitland s tremulous tones were heard but a second in reply when he was interrupted by a coarse voice from the crowd of ranchmen, by this time in creased to nearly a dozen men. Some of them were gathering about Perry as he sat in the saddle, and an applauding echo followed the loud interruption: "Give the swell a lift Tummy; twill teach him better manners." Almost instantly Perry felt his right foot grasped and a powerful form was bending at the stirrup. Lte had heard of the trick before. Many a time has the London cad unhorsed the Encash ttaejx. "Just steady hk head la that position one minute, like a good fellow. Ill be back in a twinkling." said live manager, as he darted from the room and leaped hurriedly up the haU stairway. Perry heard him rap at a distant door, apparently at the south west angle of the big ho nee. Then hia voice was oaliinc ' "Mrs. Oowaal Mrs. Oowaal would you have the goodness to come down quick! the masters ill. Then, before any answer could he given, another door opened aloft and trading skirta and light foot falls came flashing down the stairway. Almost be- mocxt i Basra. manager.

Leave my horse, and wait for me there. 1 Gor added the young officer, sternly; and, with bitter mortifi cation at heart and a curse stifled on his auiverimr line, the Irishman turned his horse's head away and slowly walked him in the indicated direction, ."Now, Mr. Manager," said Perry, turning fiercely upon the younger Eng lishman, "I have done xuy best tore- strain my men; do you look out for yours.. You have allowed them to insult me and mine, and you may thank your stars that discipline prevailed with my people, though you have nothing of the kind here. "Your men .have cut down our fences, by your orden, I presume," said the man ager, coolly, . "and it's lucky for them they got out-of the way when they did. We have a right to protect our property and eject Intruders, and" "I came here to inquire for a missing man a rrght even an Englishman can not deny us on these prairies. We had excellent reason to believe him injured. and thought, not knowing you for the inhospitable gang you are, that he might have been carried in here for treatment; Caere was no other place. Your pro prietor tells me he is not here. After what I've seen of your people, I have reason to be still more anxious about him. Scant merejy a single trooper would have had at their hands. Now I ask you. Do you know or have you heard ef a cavalry soldier being seen around here during the day?" Perry was standing holding his horse by the curb sjs he-spoke, facing the par lor windows and confronting the angry group of ranchmen. Within, though nearer the window than he had left him. was tbe bant form of the owner of Dun- raven, leaning on his cane and apparent ly impatiently striving to make himself heard as he came forward. Before the manager could answer, he was compel led to turn about and rebuke his men. two of whom were especially truculent and menacing. Finally he spoke: "i nave iieera nothing, out l tell you frankly that if any of your men have been prowling around here it's more than probable some one has got hurt Has there been any trouble today, men?" he asked. "By God. t&exe will be if this ranch isnt cleared in five minutes." was the only answer. "Don't make amasses? yourself, Hoke," growled the manager. "They are going quick enough." "I am going," said . Perry, swinging lightly intoaddle; "and mind you this, sin I go wfth well- warranted suspicion that some-of these bullies of yours have been respcawihle for the non-appearance cj myrtle sexist; ' trooper, taken unawares, by hurling him with sudden lift from below. But Perry was quick and active aa a cat. Seat and saddle, too, were in his favor. - He sim ply threw his weight on the left foot and his bridle hand upon the pommel, let the right leg swing over th horse's back un til released from the brawny hand, then back it came as he settled again in the saddle, his powerful thighs gripping like a vise; at the same ' instant, and before his assailant could duck to earth and slip out of the way, he had whipped out the heavy Colt's revolver and brought its butt with stunning crash down on tbe ranchman's defenseless head. There was instant rush and commotion. In vain old Maitland feebly piped his protests from the veranda; in vain the overseer seized and hed back one or two of the men and furiously called off the rest Aided by the darkness which veiled them, the others made a simulta neous rush upon the young officer and sought to drag him from his plunging horse. Perry held his pistol high in air, threatened with the butt the nearest as sailant, yet loath to use further force. He was still in the broad glare of the parlor lights a conspicuous mark; eager hands had grasped his bridle rein at the very bit, and he could not break away; and then missiles began to fly about his devoted head, and unless he opened fire be was helpless. While two men firmly held Nolan by the curb, half a dozen others were hurling from the ambush of darkness a scattering volley of wooden billets and chunks of coal. He could easily have shot down tho men who held him. It was sore temptation, for already he had been struck and stung by unseen projectiles; but just as the manager sprang forward and with vigorous cuffs induced the men to loose their hold on his rein, there came three horsemen charging full tilt back into the crowd, scattering the assailants right and left; and. this time unrebuked, Sergt Leary leaped from the saddle and, with a rage of fierce delight, pitched headlong into battle with the biggest ranchman in his way. And this was not all; for behind tli em at a rapid trot came other troopers, and in a moment the open Bpace was thronged with eager, wondering com rades full half of Stryker's company in whose overwhelming presence all thought of promiscuous combat seemed to leave the ranchmen. They slipped away in the darkness, leaving to their employers the embarrassment of ac counting for their attack. Leary was still fuming with wrath ana raging for further battle and shouting into the darkness fierce invective at the vanished head of his opponent He turned on the overseer himself, and but for Perry's stern and sudden prohibition would have had a round with him, but was forced to content himself with the information conveyed to all within hear ing that he'd "fight any tin min" the ranch contained if they'd only come out where the lieutenant couldn't stop him. The troopers were making eager inquiry as to the cause of all the trouble, ana, fearing further difficulty, Perry prompt ly ordered the entire party to "fall in." Silence and discipline were restored In a moment, and as the platoon formed rank he inquired of a sergeant how they came to be there. The reply was that it had grown so dark on the prairie that further search seemed useless, Capt Stryker and most of the men had been drawn off by signals from the Cheyennes up the val ley towards the post, and these men who had been beyond Dunraven on the north ern prairie were coming back along the Monee trail when they saw the ugnts and heard voices over at the lower shore. There they found Leary, who was excit ed about something, and before they haa time to ask he suddenly shouted, "They're killin the lieutenant Come on, boys! and galloped off with his own party; so thev followed. Perry quietly orderea them to leave a corporal and four men with him, and told the senior sergeant to march the others back to the post; he would follow in five minutes. Then he turned to the manager. You will have to put up with my keeping some of my men with me, in view of all the circumstances, ne saia. coldly. "But after this exhibition or lawlessness on the part of your people I do not propose to take any chances. I want to say to you that u is my oenei that some of those ruffians you employ can tell what has become of our missing man, and that you will do well to inves tigate to-night As to you, Mr. Mait land," he said, turning to the old gentle man, who had sunk into a low easy chair, "much as I regret having dis turbed your privacy and that of the ladies of your household, you will ad mit now that justice to my men ana to the service demands that I should report my suspicions and my reception herfi to the commanding officer at rort i4oss- ter." - , There was no reply. . "I wish you good night, sir," said Perry; but his eyes wandered in to the lighted parlor in search oi a very ainer ent face and form and still there was no answer. . x Tbe manager came back upon the pi azza and stepped rapidly towards them. Perry quickly dismounted and bent down over the crouching figure. "Why, here!" he suddenly exclaimed, 'your employer is faint, or something's gone wrong." . "Hushr was the low ' spoken, hurried answer of the Englishman. "Just bear a hand, will you, and help me to lift him to yonder sofaT , Easily, , between them, they bore the slight, attenuated form of the old man into the lighted parlor. A deathly pallor had settled on his face. His eyes were closed, and he seemed fallen into a deep swoon. Perry would have set a cushion under his head as they laid him down on a broad, easy couch, but the manager jerked it away, lowering the gray hairs to the very level of the beck, so that the "jjjouih caned wide and looked like death fore he could turn to greet her, she was in the room again, and with quick, im pulsive movement had thrown herself on her knees by his aide. "Oh, papal dear father! I was afraid of this! Let me take his head on my arm, eo," she hurriedly murmured; "and would you step in the other room and fetch me a little brandy? "Ha there on the sideboard." Perry sprang to do her bidding, found a heavy decanter ra the great oaken buffet, half filled a glass, and brought it with some water back to the lounge. She stretched forth her hand, and, thanking him with a grateful look from her sweet, anxious eyes, took the liquor and carried it carefully to her father's ashen lips. "Can I not help you in some way?. Is there no one I can can? asked the young soldier, as he bent over her. "Mr. Ewen has gone for her our old nurse, I mean. She does not seem to be in her room, and I fear she has gone over to her son's a young fellow at the store house. Mr. Ewen has followed by this time." She dipped her slender white finger in the water and sprinkled the forehead and eyelids of the prostrate man. A feeble moan, followed by a deep drawn sigh, was tbe only response. More brandy poured into the gaping mouth seemed only to strangle and distress brim. No sign of returning consciousness rewarded her effort "If Mrs. Cowan would only cornel She has never failed us before; and we so lean upon her at such a time." "Pray tell me which way to go. Sure ly I can find her," urged Perry. "Mr. Ewen must be searching for her now, or he would have returned by this time; and I dread being alone. ' I have never been alone with my father when he has had such a seizure." Perry threw himself on his knees be side her, marveling at the odd fate that had so suddenly altered all the condi tions of his unlooked for visit. He seized one of the long, tremulous hands that lay bo nerveless on the couch, and began rapid and vigorous chafing and slapping. Somewhere he had read or heard of wo men being restored from fainting spells by just such means. Why should it not pre vail with the old man? He vaguely be thought him of burnt feathers, and look ed about for the discarded pillow, won dering if it might not be a brilliant idea to cut it open and extract a handful and set it ablaze under those broad and emi nently aristocratio nostrils. Happily, be was spared excuse for further experi ment He felt that life was returning to the hand he was so energetically grooming, and that feeble but emphatic protest against such heroic treatment was manifest "I think he's coming to," be said. "He's trying to pull away. Shall I keep on?" "Yes, do! Anything rather than have him lie in this death like swoon." Obediently he clung to his prize, rub bing and chafing hard, despite increasing tpg and effort Then came another fee ble, petulant moan, and the hollow eyes opened just as rapid footfalls were heard on the veranda without and Mr. Ewen rushed breathless and ruddy faced into the room. "Where on earth can tliat woman have gone?" he panted. "I cannot find her anywhere. Is he better. Miss Gladys?" "Eeviving, I think, thanks to Mr. thanks to you," she said, turning her eyes full upon the kneeling figure at her Blue aim oeuuiug en j o uc uj .uw his throat with delight at the gratitude and kindness in her glance. She was striving with one hand to unfasten the scarf and collar at the old man's neck, but making little progress. "Let me help you." eagerly said Perry. "That, at least, is more to my line." And somehow their fingers touched aa he twisted at the stubborn -knot She drew her hand away then, but it was gently, not abruptly done, and he found time to note that, too, and bless Iter for it "I hate to seem ungracious, you know, after all that's happened," said Mr. Ewen. "but I fefir 'twill vex him awful ly if he should find you in here when he comes to. He has had these attacks for some time past and I think he's coming through all right Seer Old Maitland was certainly beginning to open his eyes again and look vacantly around him. "Better leave him to Miss Gladys," said the overseer, touching tbe young fellow on the shoulder. Perry looked into her face to read her wislics before he would obey. A flush was rising to her Cheek, a cloud settling about her young eyes, but she turned, after a quick glance at Iter father. "I cannot thank you enougb now," she said, hesitatingly. "Perhaps Mr.! Ewen is right You you deserve to be told the story of his trouble, you have been so kind. Some day you shall un derstand soon and not think unkindly of us." "Indeed I do not now," he protested. "And whom are we to thank? your name, I meanF she timidly asked. "I am Mr. Perry, of the th cavalry. We have only come to Fort Rossiter this month." - "And I am Miss Maitland.

He took it very reverently and, bowed over it, courtier like, longing to say something that might 'fit the occasion; but before his scattered senses could come to him there was another quick step at the veranda, and a voice that sounded strangely familiar startled his ears: "Gladys!

Temperatar of the Sea, The thermometer has become a useful instrument in examining the basins into which the bottom of the sea is divided. The geography ot the sja bottom is de termined from the temperature of the water as readily as it would be by re peated soundings. When t'e Challenger cruised in the water east and southeast of China several years ago the geography of the different seas formed by ihe groups and chains of isandsoff that cocst was made out In this way. In tlie open Pacific, and in all seas into which the oceanic currents flow, the tempera ture varies from the surface to the bottom. Of course the deeper water is the cooler. If a basin be cut ou from this general flow up to within a certain depth from the surface, then the tem nntnr will be found to lower iut as in tlie ocean, until a depth is reached j ist even with the top of the inclining l-i.k or reef. From tliat point to tke Uttitt the temperature i found to be uuifo- io. Some observations in tle waters naitud will make this intelligible.
