idea why. lie had now left the busincsi

Suddenly he stopped short and enid to

to be the home of a well-known mini ter.

inquired of the hackmsn.
Looks like it," was the responne. "Thc>
just came from the train and said they were
going right away again, lie's an old 'guy,'
but she's a *beaut!' "
"You don't sav," ex. lnitned the new rc
porter, nnd then added, n* a sudden in
spiration took effect, "what will you take
to let me get up on the box with you?''
"Oh, a half ought to settle it," was the
answer after a moment's pause.
"Here's your coin," said the new reporter
excitedly, and up he scrambled next to the
"Where did you fay they came from?"
began the new reporter in hopes of lean)
ing a few facts in advance; but just nt
that moment the house door opened, aw',
the couple under discussion appeared, fol-
lowed by the Rev. Mr. Splicer himself, who
cordially shook hands with both of them.
"Well, I will be!" exclaimed the new re-
porter, though just what be meant was
made evident neither by the words or the
way they were spoken. "Prof. Bunker, aa
And true enough, the "happy bride
groom" was none other than the grouchy
old instructor of "math" under whose tute-
lage more than one uncomfortable hour
had been spent and not very much over a
year age, either. "And to think of Hunker
getting married! Why. he was the last
person one would ever dream of doing such
a thing! Hut then one can never tell," and
the mind of the new reporter jumped for a
second back to a certain photograph bal-
anced behind tho pincushion on a bureau
The professor's companion did indeed
merit the significant title of "beaut." She
was young and pretty nnd well dressed, nnd
she demurely entered the carriage as though
an ordinary carriage were an every day
affnir with her. "To the station," said Prof.
Bunker, ond off they started.
"Now, this ought to be a pretty good
story," the new reporter was thinking.
"Oh, I'll show 'em! Maybe thrir eyes
won't take a shoot when I bring my own
little 'scoop' to the office! Wonder bow
I'd better go about it: I suppose the best
plan is to brace up and tell them to de-
liver. Hut to think of that gray hair—"
Ilia remarks were cut short by arrival al
the depot curbing. Too late to plan now;
the time for net ion had arrived. Prof.
Hunker opened the hack door, nnd careful!*
assisted his companion to alight. Then he
slowly drew forth an antiquated pocket-
book, paid the driver and turned to enter
the station. But the new reporter reached
the door first, and blocked the way.
"I beg your pardon, sir," he said, "but
may I trouble you for a few particulars?
You see you might just as well tell me, for
I practically have all the facts now, in-
eluding both names," he added, with more
enterprise than truth.
"What do you mean, young man?" asked
Prof. Hunker with a scowl very similar to
those affected by him in class room.
"I assure you, there isn't the slightest
use iu holding back Prof. Hunker," said
the new reporter, quickly. "It isn't a per
sonnl interest I take in this affair, it's the
paper I'm looking after. Now, as I said. I
have the main facts, so you might as well
give the details, for if you don't I shall I*
obliged to make a guess at them. I saw
you go into Mr. Splicer's and 1 saw* you
come out. Iu fact, 1 saw pretty nearly
everything but the marring" ceremony it-
self. Besides," he added persuasively, "I
used to be in your class, and you might be
considerate on that account."
Prof. Hunker's expression changed from
one of surprise to a look usually reserved
for the luckless student floundering in the
intricacies of logarithms. Then lie spoke,
and his tone was not gentle.
"Young man,' he said, coldly, "if you
were ever a r.-eniber of my class, as you
say, I am perfectly willing to forget tho
fact. Indeed, had I thought that our col-
lege could have produced such a simpleton,
1 should have resigned my chair long ag

coming to the front, "if you have the im-
pudence to say another word to cither my
niece or myself, I'll—"
But the new reporter was already bait
across the street, while the hacknian who
had stopped to see how a wedding item is
gathered, wore an exasperating grin which
he was not making strenuous efforts to con-
"Aren't you a trifle late?" remarked the
city editor some ten minutes later, in a
tone which so in eh u* suggested that he was
not asking for information.
"I'm afraid I am." answered the new re
porter meekly. "The fact is—well, 1 have
been working on a story, but it didn't pan
As the new reporter was waiting for his
breakfast the following day, he picked up a
copy of his own paper lyirg within ca.-v
reach. Tho first words which caught his
eye were printed in heavy type on the first
page, and they read:

SCOTCH HIGHLANDS MILLS
Tlie Project to I >e \\ nterfalln to
(*enernie Electrical Power
In That Country.
Waterfalls are being used more and
more to produce electrical power.
Switzerland I :is no coal with which to
make steam to run lier industries, and
so her waterfalls iiave been the driving
force. They are now beginning to be
used strill more effectively to produce
electricity as a motive power. The
rapids and falls of the upper Rhine are
now generating electricity which is
used in the mills of that region. A
large enterprise is also on foot for the
production of electricity in the Scottish
Highlands by means of water power.
It may not be so very lon^- before the I
prediction of Lord Kelvin that "the
production of electricity by means of
waterfalls will some day uttiact a pros- !
perous population to the Scottish High-
lands" will come true.
Tho British parliament has before it
the project to obtain electrical power,
equal to 38,000 horso power, by means
of the chain of lochs along1 the border of
Perth and Argyll counties to the west
of the Grampian mountains. The most
important of these lochs is Ericht,
which has a length of about 17 miles,
its waters discharging into Loch Ran-
noch nnd then into the Tay. It is pro-
posed to build a large dam at the ex-
treme south of the loch, turning it into
n great reservoir, and then to pass the
accumulated waters far below in the
valley through an aqueduct to the elec-
tric plant, v here the water power will
be used to generate electricity enough
to drive many large mills. It is pro-
posed to follow the same course with
all the lochs between the Grampians
and Loch Leven. Thus a series of reser-
voirs, at high elevation, will be sup-
plied, and the fall of water to lower
levels through the aqueducts will feed
the stations producing the electricity.
The fall of water in some cases will be
900 feet, and that at Loch Kricht alone
is expected to produce electricity I
amounting to 14,000 horse power.
In our ivestern mining regions the
process of producing ami reducing ores i
is being considerably cheapened by the
utilization of water power to produce
electricity for driving the machinery. |
This is a recent feature of our mining
operations and is a new economy that
is diminishing expenses. Great Britain
has been very slow to adopt electricity
as a motive power, but is fully con-
vinced at last of its eeonomj* and mer- I
its, and electric street cars are begin-
ning to appear on the streets of a few
cities. In January last the experi-
mental line that has been building in
Liverpool was started. It is two and a
half miles in length, litis a double track, !
and, as the line is already successful, j
it is expected that electricity will super- j
sede horse power on the entire street
railroad system. Electric street cars j
were also introduced on the streets of i
Glasgow in October last.
Germany has been much wider
awake, and while electric street cars j
iu England are stall in the experimental i
stage, OS cities of Germany ho* 3 intro- |
duced them with great success, and in
35 other cities or districts these rail-
roads are now in course of construction.
Most of th" industrial cities of West-
phalia nnd the Hhine province are con-
nected by a network of electric roads
which serve not, on'y for passengers
but also for freight traflic.— V Y. Sun
An Excellent Thlnjc.
Mrs. Lumley—Why don't you per
sua'lc your husband to have u burglai
alarm attached to your house? We hud
one put in about a month ago.
Mrs. Watkins—Do you really think it
amounts to anything?
"Oh, it's an excellent thing. Burglar
came around night before last, and,
owing to the presence t f the alarm
clock, my husband and 1 were able to
get into the attic and lock the door
afer us before any of the villains had
succeeded in setting a foot inside the
house."—Chic i :<> I .veiling News.
