to suit me. Xo unnecessary hardships
for me. 1 don't want auy bacon and
beans, or stuff like that."
"You can have fried trout and hot
biscuits, sir, beside tlic stuff wo take
along.''
"How about venison, eh—or a littlo
moose steak?"
The guide looked at the fatjuwled
man. "It's the close season for game,
•ir."
"Now, look here, my man," said Mr.
Weldon, in his rasping voice, "l didn't
come four hundred miles to find that
out. I came to get' a rest, and some
sport, too, 1 have a new-style knockdown rifle ill that case, and I'm going to
try it on some deer and moose that
you'll show mo.''
" It is against the law
big fine, sir."
"Yon guides never break the law,
eh?" sneered the New Yorker. "Not
when nobody is looking? Vou just fix
it so I can use that rifle. I'm willing to
tin the game-warden, if he's around,
with a yellow-spot—say, fifty—but I
won't pay any graft. You see the warden and fix it up with him, You've
done it before."
The woodsman's eyes flashed, and his
muscular lingers crushed the felt hat
ho held behind liis back. But he saw
tho group of waiting applicants. His
eyes foil, and ho said nol hing.
"About your wages, Ames." said Mr.
Weldon complacently, taking it for
granted that the law-breaking point was
settled, "it. seems to me that, the three-
dollar rate is rather steep, in view of
all this competition. Will you work
for less?"
"I'll work as cheap as any man, sir.
I'll—I'll—whatever you "
"Oh, well, I won't beat you dowu,
A few dollars more or loss don't interest me. I only spoke of it as a matter
of principle. I want to pay the market
value of things, including labor, and
that value is determined by competition.
But if you do your work well, we'll
consider' the difference a present; and
I may add to it, too, when we got
through."
' 'Thank you, sir.''
"Alt right. Vou're engaged. Yes,
we'll take that canoe trip to thc head
of the lake, and look int"> the trout
proposition. You con pack up my
th'ines. And, look here, Ames, just take
off these shoes for me. ami lind me
something lighter in that bag."
.1.  Thornloigh   Weldon   hold  out his
right, foot.    The tall  woodsman gazed
at it a momont.
"Hurry up," grunted the omployer.
Ames dropped on his knees and began
to unlace the pigskin shoe.
One of the group of disappointed ap
pHcantS, who were turning away, remarked:

But he needs the job. It's been a pour

He has a wife sick in the hospital down
river.
When the cedar canoe had been packed'high at both ends with many superfluous Ihiiigs. the guide hold it, squatting on the bank, and directed his employer where to sit. Mr. Weldon stepped heavily in the creaking shell. lie
floundered about and fell into a Bitting
posture on lhe bottom, his short, fat
logs extended, a cushion under him aud
another nt his back against a thwart,
The guide pushed off, leaped iu with
graceful ease, sat on the wicker seat-
above and, facing lhe other man, took
up his paddle and drove the cannc forward with noiseless, perfect strokes.
It was planned to go half a dozen
miles up the Irk", spend the night in a

As the canoe slid over the glassy
waters of- the inlet, like a beam mil
woman gliding over tue polished tloor of
a ballroom, the fish were leaping near
llie lily-pads, and a thrush's voice
sounded magically from the leafy shore.
A iupe uf pearls dripped from the clean
blade of lhe paddle aud dissolved in
the silvery swirl behind. The sun cast
lengthening   BltudoWB   over   the   WCStOTU

"Ames-; ii
" Ves, sir.''
The ash nu .1. Thonileigh Weldon's
cigar had accumulated, but he did not
let go of the canoe sides to remove it.
"Ames, I don't mind telling you tnat
this is my first trip iu u canoe in a good
many years. I am a very busy man,
with large interests, and I liavo only
taken short vacations, generally to
places like Palm Beach, Carlsbad, and
.Monti; Carlo. New, I just closed up a
big deal on the Street, and I thought I'd
take my doctor's advice to go off in the
woods and get a genuine rest."
"Yes, sir," said the guide, a statue
swaying at the waisl, his bare forearms,
hairy ami corded, swelling in muscular
accompaniment to the rhvthiuic sweep
of his puddle.
"I have had almost too many interests," resumed tlm passenger, neglecting to straighten the vizor cap which
a puff of wind had caused to slip over
lus eye. "I am known as the most all-
around business man iu New York. That
is to say, I am a manufacturer—an employer of labor—a banker, a general
in pit a I ist, sometimes a speculator,
t^uite an all around mau."
"Yes, sir," said the guide, ai
though al tempting to amend au
quale response, added:    "I  seen your
name in tho papers,''
"Aliout my nervy deals iu Zinc preferred, eh? Ves, I had that crowd
afraid of my shadow. Fear is a great
thing, Ames. Make the other fellow
afraid and you win. Oash is your ammunition, but fear "
The canoe swerved in an extra gust
of wind. A few wavelets shipped the
cedar-canvas shell with a hollow, drum-
like sound.
"I don't like this, Ames," said Mr.
Weldon, the visible part of his rod,
puffy face showing signs of fear.
"It's all right, sir," reassured the
impassive-faced guide, his keen, bluish
eyes scanning lake and sky, while his
paddle moved iu steady rhythm.
"Don't theso things ever capsize?"
"Not if they're handled right." His
thoughts wero with Annie—Annie in
the hospital down rlvor, where he had
taken her last week, suffering with a
malady which no herbs of mountain or
valley could alleviate.
'' I   can 't  swim,  Ames,''  announced
the passenger, and he clutched the gunwales of the canoe with sueh force that
the color tvent out of his fat-imbedded
knuckles.
"Vou  won't have to, sir."
" Is that Canada over there?"
"Ves, sir.   On the right.    This is the
boundary."
" II 'm. I thought of going there
several times. I wouldn't mind being
there right now. "
They were reaching the centre of lhe
lake, a long, serpentine jewel of blue
with opalescent flashes caught from the
red sinking sun. Black, olcphaiitine
shapes of boulders rose out of water
near the shores, which wero lined with
the lautastic silver-gray arms of dead,
half-submerged trees, Behind the boulders and the "dry-ki" stood serried
ranks of white-limbed birches with
green tresses, whispering a multiplied,
enchanted answer to tne ripples on the
lake. Out of the green tresses a fluty
\oiee sounded a phrase of triple notes,
daily, with the abandon of first love and
Innocence, other voices on both shores
took up the phrase iu solo, quartet, and
chorus, until it went floating and shimmering into the distance up the lake.
"I can't stand for this, Ames." Another wavelet had struck the bow of Ihe
canoe and splashed .Mr. Weldon's hand.
"Can't we go ashore—to Canada—and
walk the rest of the wav.'"
"We could hardly gel through that
dry ki," replied the guide, glancing at
the darkening sky, "and if we did, il
would Inke all night to walk through thi'
woods.''
"Stop shaking your legs," added the
guide, and this command, for a time,
was  followed.
The squall developed iu the cold afterglow oi sunset. A leaden light rested
mi rhe whiter..) ;.ed waters. Amid the
deep shadows of the shore, the silver-
grey arms of tree-wrecks loomed spectrally—thoy seemed crawling tentach ■<
of   the   black bodied   elephanl ine   moi:

' 'I fan 't you keep closer to shore?''
'' There's too many boulders near

The pnssengor, falling silent, kept his
rigid clutch on the gunwales while his
outstretched feet vibrated against the
guide's moccasins.
Around the point, marked by a light-
iiiiig-blustcd pine, a cross breeze was
Mining up a choppy sen. The canoe
reeled and leaped ut the first, onset, aud
its frail sides trembled under the blows
of the waves.   Spray flew over the craft.
" Ames," groaned the passenger,
''put me ashore,"
The man with thc paddle said nothing.
"I order you to pul me ashore!"
The guide was maneuvering against
the broadside rollers that came from the
squally east.
1' Ames''—the tone was of coaxing
I error—"I'll »ive you a thousand dollars to get me on land."
Without losing a stroke or looking at
his employer, nnw huddled on the end
nf his spine with his neck against the
thwart and his knees bent, Amos made
stern reply:
" Vou shut up,   Put your legs down."
The financier obeyed.
1 A wailing, laughing shriek reverberat
j ed in the distance ami was bandied back
[aud forth across the lake, it wns a half-
liiinian uliilatiou, pitiful, sinister, soul-
chilling. This madness, diabolically
counterpolntod by the mocking spirits
of the hills, died "away iu the tumult of
wind and wave.
"Wottt was that?" hoarsely demand
ed the huddled passenger.
The guide did not answer.
"Tell me!" shrieked the other, hys
terically.      "Didn't    you    hear    thai
noise i1"
'' Yes,   I   heard  it.  '
"Whal   was it ?"
' 'That  was a limn. "
"Oh!" groaned the financier with relief.   "Ames—say, Ames!   Ames! Whal
are our chances of getting out of this
alive?"
"They're even just now," replied the
guide as Ihe camie Bhipped half a pail
fui of wnter.
"Ames, I'll give you ten thousand
dollars to get me out alive. All .hard
cash. 1 can't afford to pass out this
way. There arc too many interests dependent on me. I have to support the
market-—thousands of men look tn me
fnr a living. I have a family—1 have
too many interests— Ames, don't let
me puss out! You'll have Ihe ten thousand the minute we land. I have big interests. 1 have a family—I nm needed  '    llis terror-shaken tones went
off in babbling Incoherence.
The guide had been thinking of his
own family—of his wife, ill in the hospital down river. To save his four-
crazed passenger with himself, once the
canoe capsized, as it seemed likely to do
under Weldon 's antics, would be next to
impossible. Mis wife needed him. lie
knew he could save himself alone. He
could swim through the wild water to
shore, lie had the strength to battle
with lhe waves. But to save this whimpering creature—— i
'' Lie down! Put your head under that:
thwart!" suddenly commanded Ames, i
" What for? There's water in the
bottom," moaned the passenger. "I'll
be trapped if we go over."
"Get down on your back, or I '11 brain
you with this paild'e!" thundered the
woodsman.
' 'Would you kill me?" whimpered
Weldon as he cowered bnck and tried to
obey the command,
"I'd kill myself if I had your spirit,"
retorted Ihe guide, and. dropping his
paddle for an instant, he seized the
other's legs and hauled him Hat on the
bottom of the canoe. "Now keep quiet.
You talk about your interests. You
said yon was an all-around man. You
don't want to die. With that spirit and
carcass of yours, what in thunder have
you got to live for?"
The woodsman's remarks were more
iu the way of soliloquy than address.
As a peroral ion, while steering with one
hand, he tossed a blanket aud a cushion
nver Weldou 's head.
"Maybe you can keep still now.    If
you don't, I'll do something difl'erent."
Ames turned his attention to the com j
bat with Mature,
The lake was in a mood of treachery |
and riot such as he had never known j
before. She seemed intent on overwhelming the freighted craft. Shorl.
choppy seas alternated witb long rollers
that spoil llirougli the darkness in flank
attack. The canoe pitched, whirlel. pirouetted, and sometimes slid careening
into a ravine between two watery
heights.
It was impossible to make headway
toward the goal, located beneath a
mountain gash that faintly appeared on
the eastern sky-line. Ames, high on his
Wickor neat, his body automatically balancing tn an ounce of deviation in grav
Ity, watched keenly for the approach of
the crafty rollers. By a few deft
strokes of the paddle he turned too nose
of the canoe to meet them ami rise over
them. His paddle wns a duellist's sword,
now carelessly, lightly held, now flashing to right or left in decisive thrust.
It guarded, it parried, it slash.'d. The
canoe leaped and whirled as muoh from
the impulse of the paddle as from the as
saults of the enraged sens.
"My Heaven, wc are going under!
I am drowning!"
This came in a gurgling shriek from
the passenger, who had been squirming
and writhing on liis buck on the bottom
of the canoe—a cargo whloh caused
many a dangerous lurch.
The canoe had shipped considerable
water, which rolled back and forth and
occasionally swirled over the guide's
ankles ami the passenger's head.
Ames slooped forward, used the paddle with one hand to combat the rollers,
for which his eyes strained through the
gloom, and with the other hand he rapidly scooped up the bilge in Weldon's
vizor cap ami tossed it overboard. When
most of the water had been balled out,
he groped among Woldon's possessions
behind and under htm, and threw nver-
board a valise and other things, but re-
tamed a jointed fishing md. He then
oponed the heavy case and took out the
heavy   butt end 'of  the   rod.
"What are you doing to me?"
screamed Weldon, attempting to rise tinder Ihe thwart, as he felt the guide's
hand working at his right font.
" I 'in going to rope you down, so yoa
won't squiggle like this bilge," replied
lhe guide. "I'll hog-tie you for your
own good   -which ain't much."
Weldon entreated, begged, whimpered.
"Don't tie ire down! I won't move!
I swear to Heaven I won't move. I'll
give you ten thousand dollars. I'll give
you anything you ask. For Heaven's
sake, give me a chance for my life.
Don 't let me drown. For Heaven 's sake,
savo me!"
Ames made no verbal answer, but as
the passenger's head loomed up between
Ihe thwarts he leaned forward aud
drove his right list to the point nf Weldon's jaw. The financier's bodv resumed its recumbent position with astonishing if not instantaneous celerity, and
did not move in the slightest degree for
a considerable lime thereafter. It was,
technically, a clean knock-out. The
dangerous passenger was transformed into a safe and useful ballast.
"Thoy don't seem to make men in the
city any more," soliloquized the wnnds-
man as he parried and slashed the waves
wilh his paddle. "But I don't know ns
they ever did. Maybe it nin't necessary. ...oney is wdiat counts there, It's
a,l  being soft and  cunning.    They lie
aud cheat for a living Yon poor, miserable critter, with your big interests—
if I uad a son born to tne liko you are,
I'd shoot him through the hoad."
After an all-night, battlo with tlio
storm, under the light of a veiled moon
—truces, skirmishes, fierce onslaughts,
moments of titter peril from submerged
rocks and drifting dry-ki, Ames brought
the canoe at dawn to tlio foot of lhe
lake, lle helped out liis employer, who
hud spoken Httle and moved less since
recovering consciousness, and half carried him to a room in the inn.

Weldou, a lillle pale but refreshed hy
much sleep and Iood, garbed in a business suit, with a pearl pin in his scurf
and a golo chain across his waistcoat,

"Ames, I am going to Inke the
Iwclve thirty six. It's a through express, but I've wired the general 111:111-
agor lo have her .stop for me. I am go

"Ves, hir," said Ihe guide respectfully, hat iu hand.

smoke ? 1 don't know whether I like
vou or not, Ames. Put I Ihink I'll give

"Thank you. sir," replied the guide.
" It 's difficult m get trustworthy men

them—thou go your methods are a little
rough and you take awful—er—responsibilities, Ames, how did I act ia lhat
storm—that is, for a man not used In
that sort of thing?"
The guide thought of Annie iu lhe
hospital, nnd of the things she needed
aud that money would buy for her.
"Vou acted fairly well, sir," he said,
while his lean, tanned cheeks deepened
in color.
Mr. Weldon's face likewise reddened.
"Well,  here's a yellow-spot to pay
you for your time aud trouble."
The guide took the hundred-dollar bill
wdth unconcealed gratitude and exultation. How much it meant, for Annie!
He would go dowu the river tomorrow
and see hor.
"Ann remember, that's not all," said
the financier with growing complacence,
lightly marred by the thought of the
absurdly largo sum he had promised iu
recompense for tin1 saving of his life.
"I'll recommend you lo my friends

"I can't thank you enough, sir,"

A  GEEAT  TEMPERANCE  SERMON
VTO mure impressive w.-irning against
-Ll the evils of intemperance has
ever been preached, in all likelihood, than the following by diaries
Lamb, the essayist, who drew on tne
experience of his own latter days for
material:
"Could the youth tn whom the flavor
of his first wine is delicious as the
opening scenes of life, or the entering
upon some newly discovered paradise,
look into my desolation, and be mado
to understand what a dreary thing it
is when a man feels himself going
down a precipice with open eyes nnd
passive will—to sec his destruction,
nnd have no power to stop it, and yet
to feel it all the way emanating from
himself; to perceive ull goodness emptied out of him, and yet uot be able
to forget a time when it was otherwise; to bear nbout the piteous spectacle of his own self ruin; could he see
my fevered eye, feverish with last
night's drinking, and feverishly looking for this night's repetition of the
folly; could he feel the body ot death
nut of which 1 cry hourly with feebler
outcry to be delivered—it were enough
to make him dash the sparkling beverage to the earth in all the pride of its
mantling temptation.
"Oh! if a wish could transport me
back to those days when a draught
from the next clear spring could slake
any heats which summer suns and
youthful exercise lunl power to stir up
in the blood, how gladly would I return to thee, [Hire element. Ihe drink of
children and of childlike hermits? Tn
my dreams I can fancy the cool refreshment purling over my burning tongue.
Hut my walking stomach rejects it.
Tlmt which refreshes innocence, only
makes uie sick  and  faint.
"Ilul is there no middle wuy he
twixt lotal abstinence and the excess
which kills you? For your snke, reader,
und that you may never attain to ex
perience, with pain 1 must utter the
dreadful truth, lhat Ihero is none, none
that 1 can find. In my stage of habit
(I speak not of habits less conliriucd;
for some of them I believe to be prudential), iu the stag" Io which I have
reached, to stop short of that measure
which is suflicient lo draw on torpor aud
sleep—Ihe benumbing apoplectic sleep
of the drunkard—Is to have taken none
at all, Tho pain of self-denial is all
one. And what'that is 1 had rather
the reader should bollovo mi my credit
than know on his own trial, lie will
come to kuow it whenever he shall ar
rive at the stnte in which, purodoxicnl
as it may appear, reason shall only visit
him through intoxication; for it is n
fearful truth that the intellectual faculties, by repeated acta nf in temperance, may be driven from their orderly
sphere of action, their clear daylight
ministries, until they shall bc brought
at last to depend fer the faint manifestation of their departing energies
upon the returning periods of the fatal
nmdness to which they owe their devastation. The drinking man is never
less himself than during his sober intervals.   Evil is so far good.

ARTIFICIAL  EYES  IN   ANCIENT
TIMES
MAN'S necessity has ever been the
cause of his progress uud logon-
ions invention; and 110 necessity
is ever of greater importance to man,
01 ever has boen, than that of keeping
up appearances. All the appliances
wdth which we are familiar in dent is
try, and nil the devices of the wig
maker and the beauty-doctor, are the
direct result of this ruling passion of
human nature—a passion certainly In
be commended, when one stops to think,
for is it. not the love of perfection that
is at the root of it? And is not tin-
love of perfection one of the great sav
ing graces of mankind J Mau would like
to sec perfection all around him, and he
naturally wishes, oven more strongly,
to have it in himself or to appear to
have it if, by some mischance, he lacks
it.
As early us ft(10 B.C. artificial eyes-
were made by the priests of Koine and
Kgypt, who practised as physicians and
surgeons, Their methods of eyc-makiti"
are thus described:
On a strip of flesh-tinted linen, two
and   a   quarter   hy   one  and   a   quarter
inches, flic tlat side of a piece of oarth
enware, modeled life-size and painted to
represent the human eye and eyelids,
was cemented. This linen, coated on
the other side with some adhesive sub
stance, was placed over tho eyolioh
and pressed down, lu brief, the urti
ficial eye was worn outside tho socket
and, though a clumsy substitute, was
probably appreciated by the Homans
and Kgyptiiuis. In the'ruins of Pom
peii, destroyed in 79 A.D., au eye of this
description   was   discovered.
Not until the sixteenth century do
we hear of eyes at all like those of to
day—that is, worn inside tlio socket.
A French surgeon, one Anibroiso Pare,
invented three artificial eyes. One con
sisted of an oval plate covered with soft
leather, nn which an eye was painted.
It was attached to the head by a stronp
steel band. It could have been neithei
sightly nor comfortable. The second
device, nnd the first known in history
tn he worn inside the socket, consisted
of a hollow globe of gold deftly enamel
ed. The third eye devised by this in
genious gentleman was a shell pattom
eye, much like that in use today, ex
cepl that, it was of gold and enamel.
I'are's invent ions were followed by
eves of painted porcelains and covered
pearl-white.
(ilass eyes were invented about the
year 157(1, and were crude productions
of inferior workmanship, the iris and
pupil being hn ml painted in a fur from
lifelike manner. Shakespeare mention*
glass eyes in "King Lear,'' where the
king advises the blinded traitor (llouccs
ter In "get thee glass eyes ami seem
to see."

DAME FASHIONS
DECREES
THK wearing of mourning in Kngland consequent upon the
detith of King Bdward VII., bas exerted a wide-sproad
influence in favor of blaek and black and white that
wiil be felt for several months. Strangers visiting London
i'e*t aWigcd to wear black because otherwise they wero dis-
:tfputi*fcly conspicuous. One American woman who, not pro
vidnd with a black gown, went to the play attired iu light
blue, aaon became so painfully conscious thut sho was the
•tnljr woman iu the entire house wearing a color that she left
before the play was ovor. It has been said that in couse-
qUAMe of the enforced wearing of blaek un outburst of most
vi»i<l wdors will follow, but that remains to be proved, and
tbn dressmakers are busy turning out lho smartest of ull
bluafc and black and white gowns that are so fascinatingly
feewmiag they are certain to be copied.
Flavor were there sn many black satin gowns worn, thc
cftat »nd skirt costumes especially, and it is remarkable how
ei-jey different kinds nf black satin there are. Somu have
0  brigiit finish, others a dull; then some of the gowns arc
White Satin Gown Veiled with Black Mousselino
braided or embroidered, while others, and these the mujority,
are absolutely plain. All are niaoe with short skirts aud the
kioats are either short or medium length, the loug coat of
last autumn and winter having passed intn oblivion. Ex1
utwely scant, both skirt and coal, ami with close fitting
beeves of a length lhat reaches midway botweeu elbow and
wrist, these abuts arc very smart if well made and nf good
maUiNal, the fashion nut being adapted lo llie limited in-
.•ino, for to be satisfactory they must be of a good quality
ei aatiu and also be woll cut. As has been already stated,
thoro is a strong oJl'ur! hciug made to bring iu the old fashion
ed ••H, lustreless silks iu place of black sal in, but the former
is nol nearly so becoming a material and it is doubtful if
tbe attempt will succeed.
The three piece costume in black satin is certainly useful
and smart and will be copied for Ihe winter in sutin finished
bin tii cloth—the late autumn  mouols, if not too eccentric,
btuMg taken as models.    The three pit  suit is more apt to
be wbat it is called, three piece, than what it was last season,
wben tho skirt and waist in one were selected. Now waist
and Hkirt arc almost invariably ehoBeti, for it has been proved thnt for a gown to be worn wilh a coat iaore is the great-
6st advantage iu being able to wear difl'ereiit waists. Most
fauciaating are tllO waists uf lace aud fancy not veiled iu
Wack voile do side, wilh the lower part ot the waist of satin
in n»ft folds, ou lhe plan of a high draped bodice. Bands
•f tbo satin, which can be in cnlur if so desired under the
bUei voile, go over lhe shoulders and finish the sleeves.
Tboro is a narrow round or pointed yoke and collar of lace
• o»de aa transparent as possible, and this is nut veiled with
tbe Wack. So cleverly are the folds of material draped ou
tbe waist that the effect is lhe same as though waist and
bkirt were all ia one. ami the gown ean bc worn without the
coat. Curo must be taken that lhe folds arc out too thick,
for tbat is unbecoming lo lhe figure.
Oue of the newest models for a coai of satin or cloth is of
hip length, wilh straight but half fitting back and front.
Tbi* has a band of braiding and embroidery around the but
turn of thu eoat and down eil her side in front, 'fhe fronts
ure naught   logether wilh  fancy  ornaments.     It   is quite new
and smart, but gives a line that is not always I oiuhig, ami
('♦■sequently is often modified by tuning the trimming only
down the front. If, however, it ji possible. Ihe embroidered
band around the jacket is invariably chosen as the smartest.
Tbere is DOl su marked a ehauge iu tho coals as lhe skirts
nf Ibe street costumes. The straight efl'cct back \\iu\ front
is still fashionable, ami il is only that there is more shaping,
in a Curving at the side seams Hie fashionable figure always
betng extremely slender, bul til the same time more rounded
I ban angular.
Only the leading dressmakers now advounta uu extremely
low vui and short curset, relying entirely upon the ent of
ber gowns and emits to glvo the required straight am] slender
appearance demanded.
It is must interesting ami quite marvellous to note how
ibis slender efi'ect is obtained when Ihe wearer nf the gown
it* by ao means thin. Ail seams are straight ia effect, for all
linos are perpendicular, but as yel it requires the skill of a
clever dressmaker to carry out lhe idea. Hut in itself the
fashion is nnl sn involved, and with a good, perfect fitting
pattern il will be quite possible before winter sets in fnr
tvery woman to know how her winter suit shall be made.
Hlaek velvet is to be extremely fashionable this wintor,
aiul in consequence black velveteen and contdroy will again
bo in favor, but fur the present such materials eau only be
talked about, while cloth and the lighter weights of Herges
aad camel's hair are chosen in preparation fur the first eoo!
days of autumn. At lhe momont, voile, chiffon, foulard, lace
and all the light, cool materials are far moro popular. Foulard, while emphatically " Bummer fabric, will this season be
worn lute in the autumn, for lhe newest designs have a black
satin ground with only a small pattern tf white, and that
quite fur apart in tne design so that the cllect is much more
of a satin than a foulard. One of the latest fashions is the
use of embroidery instead uf lace ou white muslin, Hie open
work Uffht pattern and also the patterns thai look like Venetian laee in design. This i.i always veiled with black voile
or chiffon and is newer Ihan lace and is also combined with
lace, the yoke and collar, unveiled, being of llie lace, while
all tbo other trimming is of embroidery, veiled witli voile
de soie and chiffon.
In order to gain the desired effect of scantiness in silk or
light weight material the greatest care is taken in the con
struction of Uie skirt. There is a foundation or uuderskirt
of tho softest satin or silk, wbicb is fittod as tight as possible
to the figure and reaches only a short distance below the
knees; on this is sewed a scant straight tlouueo ot! the material and over this falls the straight, skirt or tunic, finished
with n wide hem. If the lines are too trying then tho tunie
is shaped to be shorter in the front or the buck and the
flounce hus more fulness in the wny of scant box pleats wide
apart. Tho most becoming style for any oue who is not
slender permits of a draped effect, as though the tunic were
long enough to drape across tlio front and tie at tho side
with the back breadths. The lowur part ef the waist is
draped, the folds going around tho figure, not up uud down,
aud the material eau either bo drawn tight to give as small
a waist measure as possible, or, like tho classic draperies,
be left loose to quite hide tho effect of any waist and mnke
the figure very noarly the samo width at tho waist line us at
the hips. In description this fashion may appear impossible
for the majority of women, but already itis being so modified
and workod out that it is qulto safe to predict that bofore
winter it will have become not only possible but even
attractive .
The color that is introduced into the black gowns is most
cleverly dealt with. It is never to be noticed in tho cOat
or skirt, but on tho waist, when in bands or folds, or waistcoat, it is most becomingly placed. One of the smartest
street suits for early autumn aud wintor is of blaek lightweight cloth; tho skirt, short and narrow, is (hushed with n
broad band of black satin beaded with black braid iu two
widths, one very narrow and ono quite wide. Tho jacket,
hip length, has also a baud of satin beaded with the braiding,
and thero aro broad,black satin rovers. The gown is not
so sombre as it would be. without tho satin, but, none tho loss,
is all black and would be perhaps dull looking were it not for
the most fascinating little titled waistcoat of bright blue
moire. This is separate from the eoat, which can be worn
without it if so desrod, is fitted as carefully as the waist,
is open just, a little af. tho throat, is fastened with fancy
buttons, aud it certainty makes the gown a hundredfold more
elaborate in effect. Cerise and a bright, green stand an odd
shade of yellow are all fashionable, if color bo desired, and
if a woman wishes to dress altogether iu black it is a relief
to know there is some way in which a too tiresome monotony
eau bo avoided.
Not an absolutely new fashion is the band of satin around
the bottom of the skirl, but il: is at the moment a popular
style for tho more elaborate street, costumes, and is seen on
the all satin skirts as well as on tho cloth—not only the
plain bands into which i.s gathered the fulness of the skill,
but the straight skirt with no fulness is also finished ia
this way. When combined with doth it. is cerlninly most
effect ivo, and the latest information vouchsafed is that for
the winter the same fashion will be carried out iu velvet,
instead of satin, while satin and velvet will be extremely
smart,
Tho fashions of Lhe moment aro so extraordinarily complex that it is most difficult in auy way to distinguish what
is attractive from such a muss of contraction, ami conservative taste has hard work to hold its own. but here and
there are to be seen models which display unbroken Hues uot
mer rod by the introduction of too glaring contrasts either in
material or color, and when black in chosen there is less
danger of one's taste being IimI away into strange fields of
color and effect. Nothing simpler nor smarter can be found
than the accordion plaited and tucked voile do soie gown
trimmed with black satin and ecru laee, the skirt short, but
not exaggeratedly short, and the waist tight fining, tho
plaits held down by the broad bands of satin over tho
shoulders, crossing back and front. An especially becoming
style has the braid bands crossed at the back and falling to
tho hem of the skirt, forming in fact the back of the gown,
the front being finished with a wide band of the satin. The
gown is inconspicuous save for its marked simplicity and
beauty of line.    This is a new model that is most popular.
Elaborate bodices are almost all made at present witb
ileOVOS which finish either just above or just below the elbow.
The majority of the new designs have high collars, and all
without exception have the flat shoulder and the broad
draped girdle. They are trimmed with lace, bands of satin
ami applique embroideries, sometimes of quite large and
showy design. Tliey are in the same cnlur as the costume
with which Ihey are to be worn or iu some softly harmonizing shade nr in black, the last when the costume is trimmed

SATURDAY, OCT., 22   1910.
What the Editor has to say.
A correspondent writes the editor this week "not for publication" regretting the action of this paper in the past in publishing the doings of prize fighters and apparently encouraging these "disgraceful exhibitions in our town."
He suggests that the "disgusting and degrading" fight
which took place iu the Cumberland Hall on Monday night
should be condemned by any self respecting editor and that an
account of such brutality should not find space in any respectable journal.
Our correspondent fitates that the alleged boxing contest
was a fight of the most brutal character in which one man was
pounded until his face no longer resembled that of a human
being, and that his face was cut in a revolting manner, and
that the floor was red with the blood of the contestants.
It is evident from the language used that our correspondent was not present at the Cumberland Hall on Monday night,
or he would not have used language so intemperate and wide
of the truth.
Having been present at the boxing contest on Monday we
are in a position to assure our readers that the facts are not as
stated by our correspondent.
We will now present a few facts:
1. Both men left the ring strong, and the loser, though
naturally disappointed at the result, was otherwise quite cheerful and apparently not aware that his face "No longer resembled that of a human being."
2. The referee stopped the contest in the fourth round,
when it was evident that one of the contestants liad demonstrated his superiority, whereas if the ring o ficials had been
such brutes as our correspondent suggests, the contest would
have been continued to a knockout,
3. The city police were present and witnessed no brutality to warrant their interference,
4.- It is true that the loser's nose bled somewhat freely,
but this is no very serious matter and those present will be stir
prised to learn that the floor was red with blood.
The contest, though a hard one, was never the less clean.
The editor is a great admirer of the manly art of self defense and will certainly do nothing to discourage it in this city
as long as it is kept clean.
It is not the brutal sport that it is sometimes painted, and
we believe that every school boy wlio is physically fit should lie
taught to defend himself properly. It i.s an excellent thing
for the temper as well as for physical development, and it is
not so dangerous, even when carried mi in the prize ring,
many other brandies of sport.
It is our opinion that there is more harm done in this
world by the unruly tongues of tlie goody-goodies than all the
prize fighting in the world multiplied by ten.

The following interesting extract is from the Montreal
Daily Witness:
"Victoria, B. C, 7th, 1010. The spectacle unique in Canadian politics, of a stand-up fight between a Dominion Cabinet
Minister and Liberal Member of the Legislature was witnessed in the local postoffice, the participants being the Hon. Win,
Templeman and John Jardine, M. P. P., for Esquimalt,
Mr. Jardine objected to the allotment of Federal posts in
his district, without the Liberal Executive having any voice in
the matter. Mr. Templeman refused to entertain the objection
whereupon Mr. Jardine sprung over the counter of the olliee
and struck the Cabinet Minister a resounding blow on the chest.
Mr. Templeman stepping back, swung a blow at his opponent, BUT missed, and Jardine with a straight left to the face
sent the Minister to the floor. The scrap was continued on the
ground until other persons separated the contestants. Mr.
Templeman is confined tO his house, recovering ('run his injuries.

NO SUCH THING AS MUSICAL EAE
Declares   Doctor   Fels,   Famous   Ear
Expert—Soat   of   Musical   Understanding the Brain
ACCOKIHN'O to a book by tho f'am
ous ear expert,  Doetor Fois, the
niiiM.'al ear U a myth.    The sent
of musi«':il understanding is the braiu,
and the ear is shaped  iu accordance
with the bruin's requirements.
The doctor eites a number of facta
showing that the ours of musicians nre
often worked so hard as to beeome uae-
less, deafness occurring at an early
period, Blmply because the nerves of
the end-apparatus gave out. There seems
to be one outward sign ol* musical understanding, though, a thick ear lobe.
Mozart, Ueethoven, Haydn, Schubert,
and other great musicians showed decided thickening of the left lobe.
Ueethoven's troubles began whon his
ears refused to telegraph the upper
notes to his brain. -IB Inability to hear
upper uotes grew into complete deafness within three years. When he found
that ho could no more hear the sopranos
and the high notes of thfl violins, Booth*
oven grew depressed, because melon*

Sustuna never heard his several workH
of the As dur accords. "1 can only
imagine how tliey sound," he wrote. At
the same time he was tortured to death
by ragtime melodies that forever buzzed
u his ears.
Franz, who worked very laboriously
over his compositions got the earache
whenever he began composing. As he
wouldn't give up work, he finally becamo deal', and like Beethoven, had to
induct conversation on paper.
The author denies that vortical position of the tympanum has anything to
do with the musical enr so culled. Mint
ih the ability lo distinguish tones. The
investigations of some physiclaus arc
filed wlllcll say Hint the lyiiipuuuui of
musicians is il nor and more transparent

While it is true thnt the finishes were

the horses behind have always expended
nil their speed, and though a finish may
appear close it does not always follow
that the winner is nll'in. Geers is a

Nut the lonst of the achievements of
lhe Cleveland week was the victory of
The Harvesler in tho 2.00 trot, which he
won iu 2.011 .j ami 2.03Vi, bolng the fast-
it two heats in a race ever trotted by a
stallion, and incidentally equaling the
nice record made by Cresceus ut Brighton Beach in 1002,*in the first heat of
his race with The Abbot. Thie N nlso
a new mark for a five-year-old trotting
dnlliou. Had there been anything to
Irivo him out he would probably have
defeated alt stallion records, as he had
sueh a big lead of Simoinn Girl that he
wns really not extended iu tho home
stretch. Hi! will certainly lie the champion stallion before the season is over.
As Uhlan gavo the meeting its opening note of triumph, he literally closed
it iu a blaze of glory by trotting a mile
to sulky in 1.08%, accocrding to regulation rules, llo thus became the real
champion of the trotting turf, as uo
olher trotter without the aid of a wind
shield in front has ever trotted faster
tlmn 2.01. Lun Dillon, ulso owned by
Mr. Billings, hus u wind shield record
of 1.58%. Major Delmar hns a record
of the class of 1,59%, but Uhlan stands
out as the first truttvr in a nice under
natural conditions and with only a pace
maker at the side to trot below two
mlnutos. Nor does this appear to be
the limit of this wonderful horse, for his
trainer, Charles Tanner, is thirty pounds
over weight and I here wns quite a
breev.e blowing. If during tho season
there should be such a happy combination of circumstances us a perfect truck,
no wind and Uhlan in perfect condition,
a still lower record is a possibility.

eigar that will neither exhale tlte an i
ot burning hay nor savagely grip my
vitals and threaten io oxposo thom to

have liad the worst results imaginable
from au expensive brand of long cut,
recommended to ine as "a nice, COOl
gentleinun's smoke.*' 1 would like to
watch its effect upon some other nice,
cool gentleman!
Uut Kdnu aim 1 have agreed tlmt WO
can't give up the woods, and, as a
Sportsman, it is essential that 1 should
smoke. Not occasionally only, bot us
a regular thing. 1 must acquire the appetite aud enslave myself to it, to the
extent that a hunt without a pipe or
cigars will become an experience to be
regarded with horror. "Uue of us certainly must smoke,'-' I agreed. "And I
am glad it is not customary for sportsmen's wives," said Edna, with a shudder. "Goodness knows, it will he punishment enough to eon ti una lly have
around a man smelting of tobacco I Hut
oven that is better than the risk of sudden widowhood." Then she shuddered
again—less violently, I. thought—and
unwrapped her latest bargain store purchase of pipes and tobacco samples.
"The salesman spoke very highly of
this Itosu Dew in the cerise bag witli
olive green und cream strings; and I
think this meerschaum is so dainty ami
quaint. Oh, Oeorge! Don't you think
you can Htnoko it"?
I um trying, as 1 write, In my inexperience, I cannot definitely say
whether it is the pipe or the tobacco;
but I am not wholly happy,
A month ago we went up ou Big
Stony for a week of trout fishing—
Kdnu, her moi her and unmarried sister,
and myself. Ma and Marie would have
preferred stopping at tho Stony Dam
Hotel, which usually uecntuiniidntes a
good many anglers in the spring months;
bnt we had como equipped for camping,
aud Edna was as insistent as myself
upon getting away bach in the woods,
Jack Menifee had been up there the
yenr liefore, uud the man who was to
drive us iu agreed that .lack had directed uh to the most desirable site for a
trout ing camp in the wholo Big Stony
country. Twelve miles from town, and
four beyond the last, house on the roud.
our nearest neighbor would he u logger
who livdd some two miles still further
up the river; so we would have some
six miles of water virtually to ourselves.
Pish! .lack's stories had prepared us
for everything—except the yarns of onr
driver. I am now inclined to believe
them both truthful men. I hit mine is
not  to be a  tish  story.
Whon four city people, and throe of
them women, attempt outfitting for a
week in camp, the result is seldom less
than a wagonload of dunnage. There
was room left for only one seat, which
was occupied by Ma and the driver,
the rest of us perching around on boxes
and carryall bags as hest wc might. I
have a theory that the rougher the road,
the more oil Joy able in the rest that foi
lows arrival at cam p. I liked that
road, every foot nf it. and Edna was
glad because it pleased tne. Ma and
Marie complained a little at times,
merely, I think, because they would
have preferred stopping at the hotel.
Tho driver hurried his team alike over
smooth going aiul rough, having the re
turn trip on his mind. When pressed
for nu opinion, he conceded that the
wagon "jolted some" when it hit a
stump, out argued that stumps were tin*
natural fruit of roadmakiug iu a wooded country. No stumps, no woods, no
fiBhing. TllO sequence was natural und
beyond  controversy.
It was high noon when we unloaded
our belongings under Hie hemlocks nt
the month of Trout Hrook, and the
driver tarried with us long enough to ae
eopt u handful of sandwiches ami cake,
Which 110 siid he WOUld eal us he
"driv." I wuh equally in u hurry to
try my new camp liXO nt cutting tent
pole*." Edna and Marie si retched a rope
from troo to tree and hung blankets and
clothing to air. Mn looked a hit worn
out and appeared duly grateful when I
inflatod one of the air beds and drugged
H to a nice shady spot. Half an hour
later she called my wife to start n
" 'akeetor smoke," and T noticed a
goneral opening of bags ami boxes, hut
was too busy with iny own work to
worry aliout the women folks' desultory
and unskilled attempts nt enmp-mukiug.
And thon it happened—or commenced
to happen:
"George, dear, where did you pack
the matchesT"
The nxe fell from my nerveless hands.
There was not a single, solitary match
in camp! I wan as sure of it in that
flrBt instant as at the end of thc next
half-hour, spent by thc four of us in
clawing over every individual package,
and iu vainly searching pockets that
could hy uo chance have held a match,
since tliey were sown into place. "You
ordered the supplies, Edna,.' said I at
lost, in a weak attempt to shift the responsibility.
"And you made out the list—overy
item of il.    George, we can't  possibly
stay here n whole week without a lire.
Ohl couldn't you ovortako tho wagon,
if you hurried/ 1 know that driver must
havo matches.
I opposed the suggestion in a fow
brief Soutonces, replete wilh feeling.
Whon oue pursues a trolling team over
rough roads, a couple of hours* start
is a serious handicap. Thou Mni'io, who
fur several weeks past had lioeu dipping
into iny privato library, look up the suh-
.teet ol liiomakiiig by vnrious methods,
but unfortunately none of her ideas was
helpful, Without a gun we couldn't
shoot lire into a slump. An ordinary
spectnelo lens can he made to serve as
a burning-glass, but even Mn claimed to
be too young to weur speci tides. The
suggestion that I might secure tire by
ruuutng two sticks togothor or by peck
ing wiiii one Ji tut on another, was loo
trivial to bo accorded attoutlonj yet
all this profitless conversation consumod
lime, ami the afternoon was half spent
before we liuully reached ti decision, I
must go somewhere after matches, and
the objective point most available was
the logger's cabin two miles up the
river.
There was apparently ao trail lo follow, since tllO road hail mado nn abrupt
turn to tho west, wliere we had lefl it
to descend to Trout Hrook, heading for
a distant settleineut beyond the pine
barrens. My only chance was to follow
tho devious windings of Big Stony, and
I never found more dillicult ground to
traverse than that lying along a stream
which breaks its wny through hemlock
ridges. Half the way it was either uphill or down, uud Ihe remainder of my
route led over boulders and through
fallen timber, where holding to a direct
course wns most difficult, Al last I camo
lo a faintly defined path which eventually became plainer as 1 followed it, ami
iu due course of time 1 could see an
opening iu the forest growth, a pole
fence, and the outlines of a log cabin.
1 glanced at my watch. It was then
ten minutes after four, and sunset w;as
around six o'clock. There was still approximately two hours ot daylight to
count upon.
I had already planned, in case the logger wns not at home, to effect an unlawful entrance and make fair and
equal alt vision of his stock of matches,
This was not an occasion for less than
half-way methods. I would leave money
for what 1 took—but, were thero only
two matches, one ot them was mine.
Hut kindly fate spared me the crime of
burglary. In response to iny hail a
Woman came to the door. She wns middle aged and far fiom comely in appearance, hut the statement that 1 was
glad to see her eamo direct from my
heart. She said that her man was away,
had .'ecu working over ou Little Stony
for several days, and was not expected
to return before tho end of the week.
1 voiced my errand.
"Stranger," she said, "thnr hain't
been a match on this place for niore'u
a month. Hut you inought come iu an'
light yer pipe at thc h'arth."
i explained my unfortunate circumstances and sho was at once duly svuipn-
thetic,
"An' wlmmon, tow! A hull gang of
wimnien- an' no way ter cook or make
a smudge. Why, man! I kin loan ye a
chunk of tire. I 've got plenty ter
spare."
"Hut how will 1 ever get to camp
with it.  '
Siie drew closer and scanned my face
narrowly, "I calkorlato you're one of
them citv fellers, ain't ye? Used tor
bavin' things come easv i1 Vou'11 git
thai- with ii all right, 'Huh! Three
wimmon-folks on his hands, an' can't
carry fire tew 'em! "
She dodged into the cabin and pros
eiitly returned with two sizable sticks
with blasting ends. " Hold 'em jest so,"
she said, placing one of them in cither
hand. "The faster you walk, the better
they'll born—the wind sorter fauuin'
'em. If thnt won't dew, put 'em both
together an' swing 'em a lot. An' if
that won't ilvw, stick 'em iu a rotten
stump an' make a fan out of yer hat."
It seeified sufficiently lucid and under-
Standablo. I thanked'the good lady and
started upon mv return, respecting her
instructions to the letter. The lire was
certainly "fanned," if speed of travel
could avail—for I covered the ground
like a scared wolf, Tor the first bun
dreil yards there were double tin me
streaks in my wake, nml I would have
resembled to lhe casual observer a two-
tailed comet. Then one of the firebrands caught iu a bush and refused
thereafter to blaze, although 1 placed it
beside the other and performed all sorts
of Indian dub didoes with the two together. At the end nf the first half-
mile I looked for and found a rotten
stump, thrust the dying brands liercelv
into its softest side-— decayed wood is
usually soft  following Ihe spring rains
-and would have worn out my liai fan
ning, had md the folly of it been so apparent.
"Both thoso sticks went out," 1 told
Mrs. Logger, some twenty minutes later,
umi sho received my report without comment. There tire limes when 1 prefer
people to talk, nnd this was one of
Ihem. She look down from its nail a
four quart camp kettle, put iu it a
handful of the choicest and brightest
live embers, nnd bunded it to me.
"Maybe yon kin git thnr with lhis,"
she said, half doubtfully. "Now, don't
stand there gnwptn' at nte—an' them
poor people nil but cut up by the
'skceters. If it needs it, T guess you
cnn tmt on somethin' dry that'll burn."
I thoughi that T eould. I was sure of
it ten minutes later, when I saw the
embers coating over with n white ash,
This time T was careful to get dead
twigs from standing trees, and t put a
lot of them in and swung my hat over
the kettle, until a suspicions little
crackling eould bo distinguished, .lubil-
iint? Well, some! I hud a lot of fire—
the gen utne large red variety—and
knew how to make more. I would
eover the distance back to camp in less
than forty minutes, and there would
still bo time to get up the tent nnd—
dust then the contents nf tho kettle
sprang up in a blaze, and a thousand
fiery tenth seemed to snatch at my
fingers and tear them from their clutch
upon the bail. It wouldn't hnvo mattered so much nt, any other point nlong
my way, but right hern 1 was crossing
n sloppy spring hollow aud tho kettle
fell bottom upward iu tho waler. If
crying or swearing would have helped
nintteis, cither would havo como remarkably oasy to me. It is possible
that I tried both; but if 1 was to have
fire there was no choico save a second
return to lhe source of supply. 1 have
been married three years, but never before had I known the fear of woman.
What would Mrs. Logger say?
As it liappeUQU, she said very little.
Her first words wero a question. "Aro
you sure you've got wiunuenfolks in
camp?'.1 1 was earnest in iny assurances lhal there eould be uo mistake.
Sho appeared convinced. Another
shovelful of coals went into the kettle.
She stood a uiinuto iu meditation; then
emptied Hie i-oals back iu tlio fireplace.
"Stand outside a'hit, Mister—or set
on tho fence," sho said. "I want ter fix
up some."
I was mystified; but nrgumciit was
out of tbe question. Before the door
again opened 1 han twice consulted my
watch. It was the longest half-hour of
my life, for Ihu sun hud dropped bo-
iund the trees und I could see tho western sky darkening, I dldn'l recognize
Mrs. Logger when she reappeared—
the description ot letniiiino uttire is beyond me; but she wns u new woman,
from the hem nu her calico dress to the
bow on her gingham bonnet.
"1 aim to tote this firo myself," she
said. "Let me git ahead, an* you fuller.
An' don'l waste yer breath tellin' what
you could dew next time—a man never
knows—the very best of  'em don't!"
I  poudeied  deeply ou  the  wisdom  of
this assertion, uutdarad not apply it
to women ns well as mon. lt was luunili
atiug to be carried a captive into tuy
owit camp, hut the only alternative was
lo snatch the kettlo aud mnko u run,
and iu such au event my companion's
next move eould not be foretold. Certainly .she would prove equal to the
occasion. .My respect for her sagacity
grew, when we found trails where I huu
so lately sought thom in vnin. Tho
growing darkness .seemed uo hindrance,
and in some mysterious way she would
Iiml now fuel for the lire us she walked
—breaking a twig here und snatching
oil' a bit of bark there, but always something which caught and smouldered
without blazing. Presently I could hear
the murmur lit miming water. Instead
of striking Trout Hrook where I hnd
crossed it, almost at our camp, we had
now come to it half a mile uhuvo the
mouth, where the stream was deeper
and wider. A foot-log had been for
many yoara at this point, but the last
Hoods had swept it away, und wo lost
some little time socking a crossing on
the stones. Onco ncross, it was found
advisable to replenish the fire, which
necessitated au additional tea minutes
of delay. I had listened anxiously for
sounds from camp, but they were not
forthcoming, If frantic ovor my long
absence, the terror of my wife and her
relatives was assuredly of the silent
sort.
We were traveling along famously,
when Mrs. Logger stumbled over some
obstacle and went down in u heap. . I
caught the exclamation, "Oh, my
dross]'' and then tlio coals Hew like
shooting stars iu every direction, as she
fought to save her clothing from their
ruinous touch. The biggest chunks of
lire—two or turee of them—I scrambled
together, covered them with dry leaves
ami pine needles, and was blowing my
hardest into the midst of the heap, when
my companion's lingers fastened in my
shirt collar with a disquieting jerk.
"Let me thnr! let mu thnr, Misterl"
she exclaimed. " We've just got ter stivo
lhat tire!"
She tore away my pile of combustibles, nursed the coals closer together
and blew upon them; found, somehow,
a bit of dry rotten wood and crumbled
it to dust over them; with hcr fingers
tested the suitability of tho fuel 1
brought, and added it* bit by bit. "Now
help me blow,*' she directed. "1 never
had such a time in my life kiudliu' of
a fire."
We were ou our knees with our heads
togothor, half blinded with the dry,
peppery smoke. A tiny tongue of flame
crept upward, flickered and disappeared,
and then came again brighter than before. Words of exultation were at my
lips—bul never passed them.
"Hold yer hands up high, Mister!"
growled a hoarse voice, just behind me.
"I've got my old Winchester in a foot
of your back, an' it's plum easy on
trigger! As for you, Sally, it's a ease
of talk a whole lot, and right quick.
Didn't look fer me home so soon, I
reckon; or inebiie you didn't kuow the
pup would trail you same as he would a
coon. What menus this hyar traipsin'
'round iu the dark with another man/"
"Means I've got no wind fer lalkiu'
tew a darn fool, till this pesky lire gits
u better holt!'' snapped back Mrs.
Logger. "Drap that old gun au' trot
nround an' get  me somethin' dry,"
llless a woman, anyhow! Yos, bless
two of 'em! Por tit Unit precise moment tbere came from the near darkness
a tremulous challenge! '' Is that you,
George, dear.' Ilow you sttirtled "ine!
We thought you would never come; uud
we have all been asleep for ever sn
long."
Verily, th* mlng of light ..ringed
revehtl ions.     Mrs.   Logger's   fire-kettle
had encountered mtsnnp at llm very
threshold of camp; but from its embers
speedily sprang a roaring fire, to crackle
an accompaniment lo vurious nml severul explanations and at least one
pertinent suggestion.
"Mister Man," said the gentleman
witli the rifle, "sech as this couldn't
never liuppeu to a feller thnt smoked—
fer he always remembers mutches."
And after our guests had departed,
Kdna had her little say: "Why don't
you smoke, dear?"
Jusl its though I hadn't heard her denounce  tobacco  in  any  form!
SUBTERRANEAN RIVERS
AN tho coast of Africa, opposite thc
mouth of the river Congo and continuous with the course of that
river, lies u submerged valley, the cxis>
tence and shape of which have boen ascertained by menus of soundings mnde
by the Hritisb Admiralty.
This valley, through which the Congo
probably flowed at a timo when the
western coast of Africa was more elevated than it is at present, is one hundred ond twenty-two miles in longth,
extending to the edgo of the platform
of submerged land which borders the
continent, Its sides are steep, preeipi
tons, and well defined, indicating that
they are formed of solid rocks. Other
submerged river valleys nre found on
thn western const of Europe, and similar
phenomena exist in various parts of the
world where the edges of continents
hive sunk.

nod nml launched ou a now voyugo of
discovery,
At the start, bad weather loug delayed
my crossing the nine miles of open channel to Prince of Wales Island, whose
rock-hound const tit this lime of year
is somewhat treacherous and exposed to
the full fury of southeaslers, sweeping
in from the open sea. Heavily laden as
it was, the bunt could not live iu verv
boisterous waler an.l I had to proceed
warily. For swamping meant the loss
of the outfit, ami nearly sure drowning
for the Captain, Mate,'und Cook, or a
lingering death from exposure should
these three mariners iu one manage to
swim nsltorc.
Dull Head, seventeen miles south of
Ketchikan, is a point forming Ihe southern extremity of Gravinu Island, where
I arrived Septombor 5th—from hern intending to mnke the-run across the channel. Here I camped and was stormbound four days.
At I n.m, September ID, not a breath
of air stirred and the stars serenely
twinkled in an unclouded sky. Hurriedly breakfasting, by lantern light, 1
broke camp and embarked. Tbis wily
mariner was goiti" to steal ti march ou
South easl Wind, Bsq ill re, and get across
channel even before King Sol. The ele-
inents seemed merged in a slumber intensely silent. And gliding out onto the
star-mirrored water, but for the splash
of oars, one might; Imve imagined nne's
self drifting in space—over tind beneath
the myriad worlds. Hut, ns unusually
quiet behavior in a small hoy mny iiieun
hatching mischief, so might llie present
calm portend the storm soon to come.
And it was well to get a move on.
I had pulled about tbree and a half
miles from shore in an hour, during
which time the sky had gradually cloud-
ed. Now the stars hud gone uud day
was dawning, overcast and ominous.
Suddenly a violent gust of wind ruffled
Iho water. Away on tbe southern horizon
llppeured a dark line, rapidly widening
north. Six miles to the westward, where
Prince of Wales Island should have
been, hung a lead-colored cloud pall. To
Contimt0 on towards that, was to consign the Captain, Mate and Cook to the
ever hungering Inhabitants of tbe deep.
Nor wns it more prudent to turn and
pull back for Hall Head, with the wind
aud sea abeam, which, freshening, must
wash the white-caps over the boat's side
umt swamp her. The only thing to do
wns to wear ship and run before the
now blowing gale, gradually work in toward the west shore of Cruviim Island,
and round some point to shelter. Mv
goorl, but heavy, rubber hoots I considerately removed, so that tbey at least
might hnve a chance to swim unincumbered, if swim we must; for tbere wns
no telling what might happen before tho
distant shore could be reached.
Stem to the wind, the little seal
boat leapt along with the waves of the
north flooding tide at llie rate of five
miles an hour. Hut, as the storm got
wilder, term Hrma became more dilfi-
i-ult of approach; and several times, ns
I deviated from the course id' the elements, sens wore shipped that sot me
hailiii" for till I was worth.
Five hours of alternate pulling and
hailing finally brought mc to the sandy
beach of a protected bight, dm ith
twenty-two miles from my morning's
starting point. Finding a tree-sheltered
camping place, the boat wns unloaded
and tent pitched. Then, after hot coffee, bacon ami beans had appeased the
ravenous appetite of the Captain, Mate
and G6ok, the chart was produced and
observations taken. Across channel, dis-
taut about ten miles, was now visible
I'rinee of Wales Island, which, directly
opposite from where 1. stood, was cloven
by a wide expanse of water between
high mount a ins. This figured out as
Cholmondoloy Sound, und gave mo tho
approximate distance I had traveled
from  Hull Head.
September IL—Weather dear this
morning, hut windy, and channel loo
wild to tackle, Being in need of fresh
door In.iis leading from tbe beach into
the woods, 1 got the rifle and went ofl' ou
a hunt. Following a fresh trail, in nn
hour its windings through thicket and
glade brought nte to the foot of a dense
|y wooded mountain. All morning laboriously I climbed, only once getting u
glimpse of a buck wlio ju one bound dis
llppeured in the brush. Hut this was
eiiougl. to arouse fresh energy und enthusiasm.    Reaching the summit, which
wasn va?' grass-grown open park, with
occasionally craggy knolls uud clumps
of dwarf cedars, I stopped to blow.
From here one could overlook I'rinee
of Wales Island; beyond which as far
as eye could see stretched westward the
Pacific; and yonder, to the southeast, a
liundrod miles across straits, islands ami
channels, loomed Hie hoary peaks of the
('oast Range. As my gazo strayed back
to the plateau on which I stood, suddenly my heart was set; thumping—for
there, not more than 20ft yards away, in
the lee of a crag, were a buck and two
does. The wind blew from them tu ine,
and I managed to crawl fifty yards to
a bunch of brush without startling them.
The buck was standing; tbe does lying
down. As I raised on my elbows to aim,
a dead branch snapped.' The alarm wns
given, but at the buck's first jump he
fell, with his neck broken half-way between hend nnd shoulder. It was a fluke
shot, for I had nitned lower down. As
usual n savage joy filled me for a moment; to be followed tne next hy a feeling of remorse. Tho buck was a two-
year-old, nnd, having dressed and slung
him in thc pack straps ou my back, I
started down tho mountain, Late in
the evening I returned to camp, weary
and perspiring, but fairly well pleased
wilh the dav's work.
September 12.—Toward noon fell a
calm.    Launch  bont,   strike  tent, and
away! Two hours and forty minutes
later, sweating, shirtless ami breathless,
I touched Prince of Wales Island at
Chnsina Point. A gentle wind camo
from the north, and up went thc sprit-
sail. Saw a little ship to the southward. The shore was very rocky and
broken by many bights and inlets, whose
eiilrance, often barred by reefs, would
bo totally Inaccessible when seas were
booming. Evening was approaching.
and the Starboard watch was keeping a
sharp lookout shoreward for a snug harbor and camping place. The stars wore
1 ist beginning to twinkle as we drifted
to Hie mouth of a dark but  well shel-
d  cove.
Ain't this rather a gloomy hole."'
served the Cook.
'Avast your gab! uud get   reiidy the
in pot," admonished ilie Skipper,
Hut ine Cook was right. It was ;.
I hide. However, the hour was
late and we might have to sail nun h
farther—and  tnen  faro  worse.
As Ihe twilight darkened, the Captain,
Male und Cook, acting mi admirable
unity, speedily creeled the lent ami
stnrted a good fire snoring in the stove
—u thing mnde possible by always eat
rying a .supply of dry wood from camp
to camp. Jn the opening—just large
enough to admit its Sxlu feet— siood
the tent midst hemlock giants, "bearded with moss uud in garments green,"
whose great limbs over-arched. Into
this cove, which faced the north, no
sunbeam ovor strayed; for, although the
weather was clear, tears still trickled
from tbe mossy beards of the ancient
trees and drip-dropped onto the roof
of my frail habitation, like the ilium
beat of a funeral march, Ves, it was a
gloomy little hole, all right. With lantern uud wuter bucket, ^ hiked off in
senrch of the brooklet which could he
hoard gently gurgling to itself somewhere back of Hie tent.
A Cloud-veiled moon faintly illuminated the waters of the world beyond the
cove, to which this seemed a place
apart. A good twenty paces through
the timber brought me to a treeless
knoll, ut whose foot meandered the
brooklet. Filling the bucket, 1 wus
nbout to turn and rei race my steps to
thc tent, when, glancing up al the knoll,
1 perceived nt its summit what appeared, in tiie gloom, to be n sort of a monument. Climbing to the top, the lantern
light showed mo an oblong mound of
broken stone, al one end of which was
au upright slab of rough rock, measuring about three feot high by eighteen
inches wide and of an average thickness
of three incites, ltoth mound and slab
were so moss grown thut it. wns impossible to make head or tail out of the
rough lettering suggested here and
there. That the slab was a headstone
and the mouu.i n grave wus certain, And
I fell to wondering how nnd when and
what poor wretch had found his last
resting place here.
Pondering,-! went hack to the tent in
a frame of mind suitable to this harbor
of the dead. Hut soon hummed the
coffee-pot, nnd tho fragrance of boiling
venison, for the timo ut least, drove
gloomy thoughts hence. When the honest Uppctlto of the three mariners (always three at meals) hud been satisfied,
forth came a companionable briar pipe
ml a pouch of tobacco—reminiscent
of u summer land. And, meditating, 1
smoked. Then, bethinking tne of an old-
lime frontier song 1 had learned in New
Mexico from a jolly jack -whacker! ug
prospector, 1 tried to relieve the oppressive silence to thu tune of "come, till
ye Texas rangers!" which narrates a
battle of the Comnnchos. and Tells of
those brave old days—those good ohl
days when no amount of hard lighting
or drinking could shake a man's nerve.
At lust, SUCCUmbiUg to a soothing torpor, 1 rolled llltc 'he blankets ami was
soon "dead to the world."
1 had slept some little time, when suddenly i heard a voice speaking to me.
It sounded very near, hut somewhere
oulside the tent, and was saving:
"Well, by the grent .lehosephnt! So
you've come to join me. have you.' I 'in
sure proud taut you still remember the
old song. And you're surely welcome;
for thoso cussed jacks id' mine have vamoosed again nnd I kuow you'll help
a fellow round 'em up. Springing to a
sitting posture, I called out: "Hullo!
who/ Is that you, Hill.'" Hut uo
sound eould I hear other than the howling of tlio wind in the tree tops; and I
knew another soul li caster wns lashing
the waters, ulso that I had dreamt.
It was nearly I u.m,, and, lun ing slept
quite enough.'] arose and built a fire,
feeling any I hing but jovial. A tnr-
routbil rain was pouring, and wilh every
wind blast a veritable cataract would
full from Hie tree lops with such force
onto the tent thut iu some places its
roof leaked. To jolly things up a lillle,
I nlti'iiipted a mini song. Hut it would
Boom Hint mv voice is not adapted to
this stylo of molody, as the effort failed
dismally.    "Could  it   he  possible."  I
pondered, thut, in the mound back there,
rested  the bones of     —.     So. Hie  idoil
was absurd!     Besides, how aboul  the
growth of moss ou tin' headstone.' Hut
tiiOSB grows rapidly in Alaska, and it
was five yenrs since i had seen my New
Mexico friend, Moreover, 1 now remembered that, iu the course of our lust
conversation, he had said something
about going North, in the event of the
disposal of his claims.
The resolve (mude the previous evening) to pull out of this irksome hole
when morning came, died as . heard the
breakers booming, It was day, and.
having breakfasted, T got into hoots and
oilskins and went buck to the lonely
knoll in the woods. There was the
mound and stone; nlso something I liad
not seen the evening before—a rusty
meat can, nailed to u stake Iwo feet
buck' from the grnvc, And now dawned
the truth, liaising the cut lid of the
cnn, I extracted a damp and mouldy
document, and unfolding it witli rover-
ent care, disclosed a series nf dimly
penciled characters reading: "We, the
undersigned eltifconS of the United
States, have this (ith dny of June, 1904,

Picking i'p somo of the rock from
the  mound, alongside of which  wns a
depression—evidently au old prospect,

" hungry *' looking quartz, having w'hlc
ly scattered over its surface a few
flakes of iron pyrites—pyrites of poV

now. lining full justice lo a COOD song,
returned to rump.
The storm held another forty-eight
hours, which were occupied in prospect
ing :i little (just for practice), Wood
cutting, and making sundry repairs with
needle uud thread to certain garments
grown more holy than virtuous in o\er
long Intimacy with a boat scat.
Clear and calm was the third morn-
ii g. as, gliding out from tho cove, thu
Skipper said: "Port of wrecked hopes
and gloom, farewell," And the Mate
ami Cook also sang out: "Farewell!"

CLEVEE CAMEEA TEICKS
WHO was it that, said the camera
cannot Iio? There was never a
greater fallacy. Photographs
are being faked every day. both by professionals and amateurs. Indeed, anyone who can manage u camera in tho
ordinary way will (iml trick photography both easy and amusing.
There is the duplicate photograph, for
instance, where a man plays cards or
indulges in a boxing-match with himself.
This is done by means of it duplicator,
which can be made from au ordinary
pill hox a little larger than the si/.o of
the lens ou the camera, Draw a Une
across Hie bottom of the box, dividing
it into halves. Then to one side of this
line draw another line, distant from the
lirst lino one-sixth of the diameter of
the box. This second line, divides thc
box into two parts, one of which is one-
third and the other two-thirds of the
whole.
With a sharp knife cut urouud thc
one-third part and remove it. Afterwards carefully black with ink the inside nud edges of the cut out portion.
The part that is left throws an image
du the sensitive plato which is just
ahnut half of what is actually in front
of the camera, within tin' field of view.
As the duplicator can be reversed by
revolving it, it is obvious that both
halves of the view can be tnken, one at
a time, aud that during the exposure of
one half nothing is being taken in the
other half. So you can pose a boy with
a sword lunging viciously at spuce, and
tnke his picture with the duplicator, aud
then take another one with tho duplicator reversed und the boy ou the other
side of the space iu front of the ciimcrn,
iiml hnve him parrying the lunge, or
being "stricken to the heart," or any
other pose you fancy.
How un enthusiastic photographer
manufactured a good tish picture is thus
described by himself: "I bought a
small trout, took a stifl piece of wire,
bent it into a curve, and pushed it down
the dead fish's mouth and through his
body until he had a nice fishy curve to
his back! Then, with a pin, a black
silk thread was fastened to his buck so
that he balanced, tho other end of tho
thread being secured overhead in the
branches of a tree, so that tho fish hung
over thc water, A fish lino was secured
to the fish's luuiith und weighted with a
stone so that it would romain under
waler, und the other end was attached
to tho rod which the fisherman held iu
his hand.
"The camera was then focused, and,
when all was roady, tin assistant cast
a stone iu the waler directly under the
tish. This made the circles in tho wuter
which would naturally occur when thc
fish jumps upward.
"An instant later the shutter was
snapped—a snapshot, of course, to get
the rings in Ihe water—and behold! An
angler fishing for tnmt, or bass, or
whu to vor the fish may be, the fish jumping from tin- water aud the camera being ou hand, ami snapped at the precise
instant when it would make tho best
picture.''
Ilow to show uu object inside a bottle
which appears to Imve been made round
it is easily accomplished by a double exposure. The object is first taken against
ll perfectly hluck background. Then,
without releasing the plate or moving
the cumcrti, u couple of poncil marks
nro mnde on the buttle Indicating the
exact height of the object, The latter
i-i then removed, the bottle put in its
place, and the camera moved forward
und focused until the gluss bottle nearly
tills Ilu- plato and comes above and below the camera,  Thon another exposure
is made, tbe result being, of course, that
tho bottle and object are taken on one
olatc, showing the hitter inside tho
former,
A DYE FROM SHELLFISH
AFTER years of hard study and experiment, tlm noted Viennese
chemist. Priedlunder, has reproduce.! the celebrated "Tyrian dye." It
has always been known that the famous purple ot antiquity wns produced
from certain shell fish, but tho manufacturing process had not been known
hitherto. Having procured a quantity
of the mollusks massed near the site of
the ancient dyeing establishments of
Tyre, where the antique color was used,
Friedlnnder broke tno shells and exposed the purple glands to the sun, leaving them to develop color; 18.000 shcll-
lish were used iu making a little more
than one g.nmtne of pure dye. The color
obtained wns rose-purple, u violet by
fur inferior to the violet of aniline dye.
Analysis revealed physical and chemical properties identical with those of
thc imligocs commonly used in printing
cotton and other cheap stuffs.
According tn Priedlunder's calculations, two pounds nf Tvrian dve would
posl $30,000, Hut the purple of the
Caesars would cut u sorry Ugure beside
tin1 purple cottons seen iu our department stores nud nn our streets. The
most remarkable thing about it would
be its price.
