Improving On Nature
Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makes
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting
garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling at less than double our price.

Thu Mint: Owners association Ht its
meeting in Nelson last week issued an
appeal to the Dominion authorities for
relief from certaiu burdens they set
forth. The appeal, iu part, is as loi*
In Ihe Continent of North America
the Cordilleras ofthe Rocky Mouutaius,
after parsing through Mexico auil tbe
United -States, in their northward course,
enter the province of British Columhia.
and pass through iis entire length, 700
miles, covering its entire width, 400
miles. From these CordilleraB within
Mexico and the United States have heen
extracted the vast stores of metallic
wealth that have enriched these countries and Kurope. There is no geological reason why the Rocky Mountains
should not he as prolific in mineral resources within lhe province of British
Columhia as withiu thecounlries named;
therefore, British Columbia, measuring
7iki miles in length and 400 miles in
width, aud having an area of 380,000
square miles, or 179,200,000 acres, or
ahout 1.6.10 acres for each white inhabitant of the province, or 34 acres for each
inhabitant in the Dominion, so far as is
known is one vast mineral field. That
this vast mineral field, with the excep
tion ofa uarrow strip along the Ilouuary
line ofthe United States, and a few isolated spots elsewhere, is entirely undeveloped and even unexplored.
The development of these resources
begun a few years ago so auspiciously
■wis been brought to a practical standstill; and whereas a lew years ago the
mountains were swarming with pros
pectors, today these pioneers of the
mining industry have nearly disappeared.
Tbe flow of capital In the province bas
been practically cut off; tbe metal production is at present decreasing; numbers ot producing mines have closed
down, aud those operating have, with a
few exceptions, ceased 10 pay dividends.
The working mines are struggling under
heavy but dens which are still accuuiu- ,
lntiug each year. It is now frankly admitted by miuing men that tbe industry
is prostrated iu many mining divisions
and that its condition is rapidly becoming worse.
This association has been reluctant to
make public these tacts, hoping tbat
tbeir realisation bv the communities immediately interested would lead to the
gradual removal ofthe evils that caused
thein, but it |l at last evident that tbere
te no chance of thin being realized, and
consequently   any further concealment
ould be useless and detrimental to tbe
best interests of the country. Is is believed thut the only hope for the industry and the communities interested lies
in wide ami frank publicity and official
Investigation, No other course nfl'ers
any hope of bringing about the prompt
uml tuilical reforms necessary to reestablish ihe Industry in tbe position it
should occupy naturally. Now, therefore, the llniish Columbia Mining association culls attention to the fact that
the blighting of   the industry is not due
entirely to natural causes but mainly to
unwise legislation. The ore deposits of
llniish Columbia prQniise to eipuil those
round ■" lhe kocky Motiiittiius elsc-
wheie, but their development and Utilisation   mc   seriously   retarded   hy   bul
In making (luiSO stnlesmenls, it is
clearly   r-SCngulscil thul   the growth of
metal mining, just now checked, bus
UifTorod from the infantile discuses tbut
effect the mining industry iu other regions of the world, to wli: The ordinary elements of chance iu the behavior
ol ore deposit! in new fields; llie difli-
cutties of pioneer work iu new regions;
over valuation of prospective mines;
stock swindles; bad management, etc.,
etc. Such evils, which always appear
during the early growth of the mining
industry, have beeu no worse iu British
Columbia thnn in other mining regions
of the world, and should gradually lessen and disappear as the industry becomes established and permanent These
evile, however, together with the tendency to ascribe to each Individual failure some natural cause, have blinded
the public to the great and overwhelm*
Ing burdens resultiug from legislative
euactmentB. Wilh the improvements
of the other conditions unfavorable to
the Industry during the past few years,
artificial burden has become more clearly recognized as fbe main cause of the
present depressed condition, and it is
believed thut unless radical relief is given at an eatly day the industry will,
witb tbe exception of some rich deposits
here and  there.be sure'** crushed out
The total weight   of the  legislative
burdens bearing so heavily 011 the Industry can only be properly seen by viewing
them in the aggregate! "'"I consideiing
not only those tnut may be easily cured
but also thOK which at the present  time
seem permanently established, it is re
Cognised, for instance, that the mining
Industry must bear its fair share of the
reasonable cost of government, nnd Ihnl
it te not within the power of lhe Dominion government to open the United
Stales lead market to lhe product of our
lead mines, unless it become possible 1
future by some form ol reciprocity, lo I
nnnugeil for by   the represcu tali ves  ol
both countries.
The appeal sets forth the claim thut
the miniug industry is burdened with
the greatest purt of th< taxation, ami
some Interesting daiu is furnished as follows;
Estimated expenditure for year. 11,3114,-550
Customs-, etc       3,700,000
John Houston Slates Some Fads About
lhc Business.
This amouni is to be raised by direct
taxation nud customs to meet expenses
of the province and contribute its share
to the Dominion government. There
are iio,ico whites, or about 50,000 while
male adults to puy this lax, which
amounts lo ahout $102 Sy per capita.
The following estimate is made ol the
proportion of taxes paid by lhe different
industries of tlle province :
Proport 11
industry           1'rmhietlon
u[ Tax
Metal Mining 911,3in.hi
Coal Mining    4,tHW,a70

l.iiinlierlilj!    1,850,000
A|;t It* ult Hit' ant
Miscellaneous i.im.iwo
Tiituls 11^,011,801
The grounds for complaint me set
forth as follows :
Customs duties, thc effect of which i.s
to increase running expenses by an
amount, which, as nearly as can be estimated, is about 12 per cent.
The two per cent tax imposed on the
output of mines, the effect of this lax is
to appropriate six per cent of lhe tiel
profits on ore of medium grade, increasing lo 12 per cent aud upwards on ore of
low grade. This prevents the extension
of miuing to low grade oies, nml hns let)
to the practical suspension of further investments ofcnpiiul in thnt direction.
Such low grade ores exist in large quan -
tities in this province, and experience in
other regions has shown that they constitute the most powerful factor iu estah
lishiug a miniug industry upou a permanent basis.
Excessive fees, payable on lhe incorporation or registration of mining companies.
Excessive and vexatious fees for boiler
.\ud several olher matters, such as the
fees payable for the registration of laml
titles, tbe high lales charged in connection with the rei-ordiug of mineral claims
and transfers of the same, the unfair Imposition of limber dues aud the tax for
Free Miners' Licenses tending to discourage prospecting for minerals.
Kight hour law, the effect of which hus
been to increase the cost of underground
labor by about 16 per cent, which was
passed by the provincial government
iluring the last two days of a session,
without any previous notice lo the geu-
1 public, the miue managers or the
miners themselves.
Severe struggles between capital and
labor, originating through lhc eight
hour law. These struggles accompany-
ng lhe decline of the industry have
changed the former friendly relations to
class antagonism, which leads to incessant urging of class legislation, dangerous
lo the industry and communities dependent thereon,
Extension of thc eight hour law to
certain surface employees.
t'ureasonuble demands by the provincial government for information concerning private business for alleged .statistical purposes.
Unwise technical provisions in Mines
Inspection Act, one instance of which is
the new code of signals for shaft hoisting.   This unnecessary interference wilh
ihe most delicate ami iluugeiuus technical operation of mining wus uot asked
for by any one or justified on any
grounds, uud was framed by parlies not
practically acquainted wilb mining, It
endanger! life and restricts the hoisting
capacity of mines and was passed against
lhc official protest of Ibis association.
The steady increase of taxation nml
the continued urging of oppressive legislation, so that miniug capital is kept iu
constant upprelunsiou and uncertainly
ns tn further burdens,
Tbe provincial "Master and Servant
Acl," which practically prohibits thc
employment ol labor in auy other province, notwithstanding the fact that
labor for a uew and unpopulated province must come from elsewhere.
Tbe Dominion "Alien Act," prohibiting lhe engagement of labor in the
United States, notwithstanding tbe lud
that Canada has ouly a small supply of
skilled miners, and tbat the men required for developing the miniug industry
therefore must come mainly from the
mining regions uf the United States.

John Houston, of the Nelson Tribune,
is a veteran newspaper publisher wilh
long experience iu britisb Columbia. Iu
last Monday's Tribune he hus something
to say of tbe newspaper business in tbe
Kootetiays, thai bits close tothetrtilb in
many cases.   He says:
The suspension and consolidation of
newspapers throughout Kooteuay ami
Yale was ihe subject of conversation between two well known newspaper men
ou Saturday, llotb came to the conclusion (hat Uiepiiutiitg oflices were still
too unmet 011s by more than half. Take
West Koutenay first. There are two
newpapers in Revelstoke, where theie Is
uot enough busiuess to keep one alive.
Trout Lal,ii and Ferguson, two small
towns five miles apart, each bave newspapers, uud neither can possibly puy.
New Denver, Silverton and Slocan each
have a newspaper, and Sandon has two,
yet there is not euough advertising in nil
live pnpeta to pay the wages of one good
man and a boy. Kaslo has one, aud il
has never paid Us debts. Ymir bas one,
and the reason why it iB published is
known only to its publishers. Kossland
has two and Nelson hns Ihree, In East
Kootenay tbere is a newspaper In each
uf the following named towns: Golden,
Canterbury, Fort Sleele, Feruie, Craubrook and Moyie None of tbem can be
paying operating expenses to say
nothing of interest ou capital invested.
Tbe Kossland Miner is snid to have
cost I'', Augustus Heinze, of Ilutte, Mun-
tana fuifiii a year, nud wheu he sold it
to llernanl McDonald for the Le Roi
company, he unloaded a small-sized
elephant onto tbat Knglish company.
Tbe Nelson Miner hus cost someone in
the neighborhood of $20,000 since Junu
ary 15, 18-yy, audits plant is not worth
as much today as It was thc day it was
packed into Nelson from Sproat's Landing on tbe back of "joe" Wilson's mules.
The Economist is alive and the Tribune
is still paying Iiish dividends.
Thc retiMni the printing business is so
unprofitable is uot haul to determine.
First, job printing Ib done at prices tbat
do not pay tbe wages ofthe printers em-,
ployed and tbe cost of the paper used. '
Busiuess mon cannot see why tbey should
pay more in Kootenay for stationery
than the prices quoted by Eastern Canadian printing bouses, and many of them
do not even go to the trouble to give
local priming ollices a chance to quote
prices. Yet wages iu Nelson are more
than double those paid in the east. Tbe
Tribune has a good job office and book
bindery and employes uone but good
workmen. It does a business of about
$7000 a year. Uf this, flooo is disbursed
for wages, j2000 lor paper and other supplies, nud the other i 1000 goes (or rent,
light, nnd sundry eipeuses. It is safe lu
say lhat no other printing ollice in Kootenny cau make a different showing.
The newspaper end ofthe busiuess is
still wor.se. Kales far advertisements
are so low, iu many instances, lhat if
the entire space ofthe paper was taken
up it would uot hold sufiicent to puy the
wages of ibe compositors wbo set the
type. No merchants are more liberal
advertisers than those of Nelson, yet if
all the money lhey pay iitinually for advertising were giveu to one daily newspaper, lhat newspaper would still not
have sufli ient lo pn-, the wages of its
editors, reporters and printers, Teh-
giapli atul paper bills have to be paid,
rent and < Dice expense! musl be met, all
of which amount to more than is re
ceived from subscriptions and sales.'
Then why aie men foolish enough to
continue in so tinptolitnhle a business
III lhe smaller towns, lhe newspapers
are iu most cases owned by prlntets wbo
live ou the future prospects of the town
until tbe are compelled to quit: wben
uot owned by printers, they are owned
hy school teachers and budding lawyers,
wbo imagine they nre born journalists.
To the credit of the one class, the newspapers they print are creditable in ap-
pt-ainuce; those printed by Ibe other
class are just the opposite. In towns
like Nelson and kossland the news-
pnpets were iu every instance started by
prac ical newspapermen; but failing to
make both ends meet, capital had to be
got from some source, with the result
tbat thc control of the newspapers bave
passed into tbe bauds of men who bave
no pride iu the business, and only use
the papers to further their miuing or
political schemes, These newspapers
are entirely lacking iu influence at home;
but their utterances are quoted in other
newspapers where they are not known,
aud by th is menus tbey sometimes create
diversions thai are almost  as potent as
Four printing offices at tbe most would
he ample for the requirements of West
Kootenay, One printing office at Nelson, issuing a daily paper, would pay a
fair return on the capital invested, which
iu lhe case of the Tribune is $25000.
Rossland could support auolher such
office. Their is not enough busiuess in
the Slocan for one unless it got the
whole ol the printing required in the
riding, and the same is true of Revel*
stoke riding. There is not enough! busiuess in East Kootenay for two printing
ollices, am] were all to be closed up except tbe one at Cranbrook, it is doubtful if that one would make more than
enough to allow its owner to put on
airs over bis neighbors.

In the rapidly civilizing west the
"bucking broncho" and the "broncho

tbey were some years ago. The management of the Kast Kooieuay Mineral.
Agricultural and Industrial exhibition
to he held at Craubrook, September 35,
26 and 27, bave made arrangements for
a fir.st class old time bucking contest.
Henry Broulette and others, and also a
number of Indians, fumed for tbeir riding, have consented to take part. It is
confidently expected that thia attraction
will be very popular, and from arrangements mude the spectators will have
royal sport.
At the Must Kootenay Mineral, Agricultural ami Industrial exhibition at
Cranbrook, September 2$, 36 aud 37,
there will lie a splendid program of
horse races. Cranbrook bas already
gained a reputation umong horsemen
which will ensure the horse races beiug
well patronized by lovers of the sport.
Thc Irack is oue of lhe best in tbe country, and true sport is the ruliug order.
The judges selected are always thoroughly competent, the townspeople are a
bright, happy, sociable crowd, autWuake
oue feel that it is good to be alive aud to
have visited Cranbrook.
Tbe management of tbe South Kast
Koetenay Mineral, Agricultural and Industrial exhibition to be held at Cranbrook, September 35. 26 and 27, are not
leaving 11 stone unturned in order to secure for lhat occasion every attraction
possible. Arrangements are being made
with an excellent opera company for
three nights' performance, ami this in
tself should prove a drawing card to
lovers of good opera. Tbe west does nol
often affoid such opportunities of listen-
to high class music.
The population of the western country
is largely made up of those who at some
time iu their lives bave more thau probably witnessed a first class lacrosse
match. We bave not seen much la*
crosse since we came to the west. Tbe
reason Is plain—we have uot had the opportunity. The management of the Kast
Kootenay Mineral, Agricultural and Industrial exhibition, to be held at Cran-
brook, September 35, 36 and 37, has
made all arrangements for a lacrosse
match to be played on one of the above
named dates. This will effbrd a splendid
opportunity for visitors to witness once I
more a royal contest at that king of manly games, This attraction alone, and
tbere are others too numerous to men.
lion in this article, will no doubt in itself attract a great mauy people.
Grown up people are too much given
to overlooking the wants and needs of
children. It should he remembered that
the children are our future citizens, and
we who have reached manhood's estate
should do our best to make pleasant the
recollections ol childhood in the minds
of of tbe boys and girls. It is astonirh-
ing bow much real, genuine pleasure
adults can give children, and in the doing, it gives the grown person a very
comfortable and satisfied feeling. The
management ofthe Kast Kootenay Mineral, Agricultural and Industrial exhibition, to bu' held at Cranhrook, September
15. 26 ami 37, is getting ready a whole
lot of amusements for children. The old
fashioned merry-go round, the sort ol
thing we all remember as having afforded ik mnny a pleasant hour, will be veiy
much In evidence, swings, and a number of other aniiiHemeula will be on hand
for the youngsters.
Tlie Mineral exhibit at the Kast Kootenay exhibition at Cranbrook, September 25, 2'' and 37, promises lo lie one of
lhe largest mineral exhibits ever beld in
British Columbia. Already much interest is being taken by tbose who are in
any way connected with mining, Many
aud various are lhe ore samples which
are being sent in to tbe secretary from
every part of tbe district. This will be
tbe moat important of the many attractive exhibits, and as Cranbrook is situated in the very heart ofa district which
is full of mines and minerals, it will
prove very instructive to visitors who
have not the opportunity at their own
places of residence of inspecting tbe
beautiful specimens nnd mineral bearing
rock which people in Cranbrook have.
It strikes one also that in making this
mineral exhibit the most important feature nt lhe exhibition the management
is acting wisely, for it will give the outer
world some faint idea of tbe immense resources of Soutli Kust Kootenay, We
are informed thnt this exhibit will form
the nucleus of a permanent mineral display lit Cranbiook.

There has been a lack of stability and
there has been too many acts to temper

country. All lhat it should be required
to do Is to pny its just proportion of
taxes. And being n comparatively in-
I int Industry, it should receive every encouragement from the government, since
the investment of millions in the province depends upon the attractiveness of
mining here as nn investment.
Tbe fact is, that mining ennnot be
made pioiitable until hoth miners and
mine oi\ uers come lo an amicable understanding, and in doing this, both sides
must he reasonable and tolerant, willing
to give as well as take. It canuot be nil
one sided
Willi a lew changes in lhe laws, a few
rhnugeB lu mine managers, ami reasonable men at the head of unions, such au
era of prosperity would dawn In British
Columbi i as lo render lhe past an horrible dream, Tbe ore is in the mountains iu i ist bodies, and it is profitable
ore. It matters could be placed on tbe
proper I isis millions would be invested
wii bin the next few years, llut oue of
tin- first things lo do is to elect more
liuslncss men ond less peanut politicians
to the lui al house.

"IVpltn," snid I, "do tell men story."
"Senora Mnrla Mndnlenn, would ynu
like to heur ubout Serapbltn? She wns
burn in Grnnnda. Thut was 100 years
ngo. She wns born in a high place,
Iler mother was of n great family, nnd
bor father was grent, too, but ho was
very wild, and Seraplilta was the prettiest thing Mint ever uas horn In Granatin. Everybody said so, uml her mother used to think ihat the sun rose ou
tho east side of her little bed and set on
the west.
"Tbe days ran merrily till Seraphltn
was -1 months old. Then she died.
Her mothor had so much heart grief
that she lost her wits. For one whole
day she sat, cold and still, without a
tear, and then she cried aloud and hogan to tear out handfuls of her smooth
black bnir, and it was a great pity, for
her hair was black and long and glistened like sntln. She was called the
satin haired. Dut she forgot bow
beautiful she wns, and she would not
ent anything or even sleep,
'•Two nights after Seraplilta tiled and
was lying as white and beautiful as an
nngel, with wax candles at her head
am) feet and with n white (lower In her
hand, lier mot her went quietly Into tlio
room and sent tho old nurse who was
watching ovef Sfirnphltn away. Then
she closed tho door and threw herself
on her knees and prayed so hard that
ber prayers could not get up to heaven,
for lhey were more liko curses than
prayers, and, Senora Maria Madalena,
tt is not good to pray like that. Ono
must not send up prayers that are uot
lit ro go to heaven, fur then St. Peter
shuts the gates of henren, and the
prayers go wandering up and down fu
the great spaces af air, where there la
no one to answer tbem.
"Tho devil, who Is everywhere but in
heaven, eame to ber and nsked, with n
very sweet voice, for be ean uso nny
voice be likes, 'What is It that Seraphl-
ta's mother Is praying for?'
'"1 want my child back. I want her
In my anus that nro so empty nnd my
heart thnt aches so.'
"And then the devil told her. I do
not know exactly how ho told her, but
he made her know that be could glvo
Seraphltn back to her Just ns she bad
been, wilb ber rosy cheeks nnd her
block eyes and her pretty black hair,
whieh was going to be like her mother's. Ilo could do this, only ho could
not give lier soul hack. She must he
nlways without a soul.
"Ami Sorapblta's mother talked with
the devil, for her wits woro gone, and
sho did not know right from wrong,
and she promised anything If he would
only give ber baby buck to lier again,
even without any soul. And tho devil
very politely said he did not waul anything to liu given to him, He was glad
to give the child buck so long us she
did not nsk for the soul.
"And then while the mother looked at
Sornplllta the pink came Into the baby's cheeks, and she smiled, and Iheli,
because her Joy wns so great, the mother cried out loud, and ber voice could
he boa I'd way down In tlie street,   i lieu
everybody came running iu to see what
was lhe matter, nnd lhe father was so
hnppy he carried Boraphlta again m the
church, nud lhey hm) another ceremony, and ihls timu he paid even more
gold, and there wns u great ft-stn in
"You see, nobody but Ihe mnl her
knew that only Scrtiplilla's body was
there, llial she hadn't any soul and never could have one; only lhe mother
knew, and she could not lie hnppy.
"Shi! grow very thin, find her smooth
satin hair turned whlto on lop Just
where lhe devil bad laid his band, so
Shi! wore tl veil, even lu the house, and
she hid her eyes as if she was afraid,
nnd she prayed day and night. Nobody
knew what she prayed, because she did
not dare to toll even her husband.
"By and by she grew so afraid and
snd because Seraphltn somehow didn't j
seem to her any more like her own
child. She was like a beautiful wax
doll, but sho was not wnx, and sho
looked Just like herself to everybody
else, only to her mothor she seemed
strange, nnd she could not get tbu
warm love bock Into ber heart, even
though sho pressed Seraplilta to her
bosom tiUht and day.
"Tlie little bnby grew In splto of Mint,
and slie grew prettier nnd prettier all
the time. Everybody loved her except
her mother, and thnt was just whut the
devil wanted.
"Tbe day Seruphita was u yenr old
ber mother could uot bear It auy longer, and sho went to her priest and
confessed to bim all about It, aud tbeu
fery soon she died, because she bad
kept ber secret so long it had just burned her heart out.
"After that, no one knew how It happened, but pretty soon everybody began
tu whisper and look qucci'ty at Seraplilta when lhe nurse carried her Into
the street, and her father seemed troubled, ami he talked with the priest ami
wanted to pay some more money lo lhe
church, hut thoy wouldn't have any
more ceremonies for Seraphim, ami Ibe
priests tried to make ibe people slop
talking. What tbey said was 'non*
sense.'    llut It was not nonsense, and
■o tbey went ou tnlkliig nmong tbem*
Helves, uml they would lake iheir own
children out of ihe way when Seraplilta
was old enough to play about
"So she grew up all alone except for
her father and lier nurse and llie priest
wbo weut lo live iu lhe house, which
showed lhat llie church thought there
was something in it, else why should a
priest go and live iu tlie houso?
"Ono day when Serapbltn was out
walking she canto across boiuo Utile
hoys who were stoning a black kit tun
to kill it, for everybody knows that
black eats belong to die devil. And
Seraphim ran right In among the flying
stones, and not one of tbem hit her, for
the devil held his band between her
and the stones, and she caught up tbo
devil's kitten and hugged It light, whilo
the stones foil nt her feet, aud the boys
cried out: 'Devil's brail Devil's eat!' "
"Peptta," said I, "she scorned to me
to have been u very nice, soft hearted
little girl."
"Ob, no, Senora Maria Madalena! You
see, black cats belong to the devil, and
If sbe had had nny soul sho couldn't
have taken one In ber arms.
"She carried It home, and she used to
feed It, nnd she hud to hide it away, because, of course, nobody wanted to
havo a devil's cat around, and the cat
would run and Jump Into Sorapblto's
anus whenever she camo nenr, but It
would fly like mad nnd Its hair would
all stand ou end when any one elso
came around, whleh shows, does it nor,
that something was wrong? And auolher thing showed that all was not
right with Seraplilta; the priest began
to teach, and sho learned faster than
any child should. There was nn evil
spirit that whispered the words Inio
her ear, so that she did not havo to
"Sbe hnd power over horses, too, nnd
If she just put her lips to n horse's ear
he would turn nnd rub his nose on her
face. Yon soe, horses have no soul, and
thoy knew that Seraplilta hadn't any.
"And, besides that, she always looked
vory old and grave when anybody was
nenr, but when she was alone In lho
fields or in the woods she would Intigh
out loud, and they could bear ber talk
With the birds, for she knew bird language, and sho would lean over tbo water and talk to herself or to tho fishes.
Ob, It wns true, she had no Boull"
"Woll, what became of bor?" I asked
as Poplta paused to emphasize hur
"She grow up so beautiful that strangers would stop In the Street and look
at her us she passed, but of course everybody soon found out oil about her,
and then tbey would not look ut her—at
least tbey would not look bet- In lho eyo
—unless thoy bad a charm on."
"Do you mean that she bad the 'evil
"Oh, yes! Vihy, sbe could make any
one bave bnil luck Just by looking nt
them, und she could make flowers grow
and blossom nml be mote colors than
any other flowers. Sho knew she had
the 'evil eye,' for sho never went anywhere or visited the sick or the poor,
though sbe bud plenty of money. Sho
used to send tbo priest witb food or
clothes.   You see, she know."
"And what became of poor little Ser-
"Why, you see, when sho was nbout
20 years old sho was very 111 again, and
sho lay in a trance for three days. Tho
doctors wouldn't go near her, nnd her
own old nurse had died, nnd they
couldn't got nny one to take care of ber
till finally the priest sent to the convent
for one of the sisters. She wns n very
good womnn, and slie wont to tbo
bouse, ami, creeping on ber hands and
knees so tbat the devil could not get
bold of bor, she went right Into tbo
room and prayed nil night Iler prayers went straight up to heaven, and sho
prayed thut Serapbltn might die and
that before sho died lur soul should lie
given back to her.
"And, Senora Maria Madalena, Just
as the sky begun lo grow pink in ilu.
east and tho whlto mist blew across
the vegn nud the birds began tu call
what do you think happened?
"A beautiful while dove llew Into tbo
window mul alighted on Seraphlta's
breast, ami, laying lis hill close to bor
mouth, It breathed n smil inlo her, ami
theu the dove Just vanished, und Sent-
pliilu was dead.
"Then, beeilltsoOod had been good lo
liim nnd had giveu Seraplilia u soul
again, her father built an orphan asylum nnd called It afler her, 'The So*
rapidta,' and you can see It ovor there,
wilb tho sun shilling on It. It looks like

you believe she had no soul?"
"Tbe senora knows I um English on

f-lmyly iisl.ed llie Inspector wbnt he ei-
pei'f'd io lind In my apnrlmeula to
show what hud become of my mlsalun
friend. That was mid* out to be "obstructing," and 1 was fined a sum equal
to about (20. Ths next duy I wad
brought up ou aiu>t her charge, tt was
uiy duty uuder the law to huve notified
the pul lee at once of Leon's disappearance, hut I hud wulted several duys beforo doing so. llt'lug derelict In my
duly, I was fined $7. There waa still
a third charge, 1 hud employed private detectives when 1 should have notified the regular police. This waa
holding the law In contempt, It was
clearly within thu province of Ihe
court lo Hue uie for thnt, but us I was
ii stranger in I'muce and had not been
found guilty of any criminal offense
this charge would be overlooked. 1
was then given my liberty, with n
warning to be more circumspect In the
future. My attorney had not opened
his 111011th In my defense, but 1 hud to
pay Itiin a fee of *$'J5.
Upon being turned out of the courtroom 1 made my way to my iipurttneuls
to llnd that Messerve had been home
for three days, but that tlie police had
prevented hlm from notifying tne. He
had left the rooms fully Intending to
make an end of himself, but had encountered frieuds, drunk with them
nnd finally brought up In a gambling
house and WOU something like $liO.IWWJ.
Tliis Ids frieuds had takeu enre of for
bim until he was once more himself.
He had scarcely related hla adventures
and listened to mine when the police
came and arrested him, and two duys
later he was tried and convicted of the
charge of "raising a false and unnecessary alarm and eiDusiug the ollicers of
the law unusual and unnecessary trouble." This was based upon the fact
that he hud not committed suicide, nnd
he was lined $20. 1 do not know thnt
tbe police would have brought further
charges, but I did not wait to give them
a chance. Bidding my companion adieu,
1 packed up and crossed the channel
ami left them to work It out on thoso
remaining behind. A few weeks later
I heard that the notary was In trouble,
but whether because he had notified
Mosserve of his misfortune or for
breaking some other article of the code
1 could not learn.
Tlie Blind iMiikrr'i Cigar.
We are often told that a man who Is
smoking iu the durk would be uuable
to tell whether his elgar were alight or
no unless he could see the red glow at
the cud of It. So, too, a man with his
eyes shut would have great difficulty
In telling whether he were drinking
port or sherry. Now. on 1 have been
blind for upward of UO years 1 am unluckily somewhat fairly qualified to
contest the validity of this statement.
1 was a smoker for 20 years before my
liiiirmlty crept upon me, antl I am
smoking even now us 1 dictate this letter, ln fact, 1 have smoked nil my
To say that I do not know whether
my cigar Is alight or uo because I ennnot see either the smoke or the red
glow* nt the end of the weed Is simply
absurd. The taste alone Is sufficient to
tell me accurately, The one is Infinitely
pleasurable and flavornble and the other exceedingly disagreeable atul objectionable. Tongue, palate and odor are
Incontrovertible testifiers. 1 grant that
tlie pleasure of smoking Is lessened by
tlie absence of the sight of the smoke,
but only slightly, and to assert tliat I
do not know whether 1 am smoking or
uot Is as much aa to say I do not know
whether 1 am standing on my head or
my heels.—Saturday ltevtow.

"Xow," said the big buck deer to bli
eldest born, "1 will show you n sight

proud of that 1 feel like walking
around on my bind legs all the rest of
my life."
"Why." nahl the fawn, "it Is a man.

"Yes." suit] the favru'i proud parent,
dragging out (he carcass from behind a
tree, "and now, like a good little deer,
run nml set me uiy sharpest knife.
While I nklu hint and prepare his head
for a dining room otunment.   Ami shull
I tell you how your papa did such a
